Olay

IMG_6440Olay White Radiance Advanced Whitening Brightening Intensive Moisturiser

Winter is here and it’s all about keeping your skin simple and clean, I have only been working on taking care of my skin because winters are the times when my skin is less cooperative.

I’m totally focusing on keeping my skin moisturized hence I thought I would share the moisturizer that is helping my skin stay clean by avoiding breakouts and giving a brightening effect. Hope you enjoy reading this post.IMG_6141

I have really enjoyed testing the new Olay White Radiance Advanced Whitening Brightening Intensive Moisturizer, let me tell you this is not a fairness product it’s a moisturizer that brightens your skin tone. This comes with a SPF 24 UVA/UVB and also it brightens, evens skin tone. It also claims to give a radiant fairer skin in 4 weeks which is something I would not comment on as I have only used this product for 2 weeks now, and I want to review the same purely based on how well this acts as a moisturizer. However If you decide to use this as your daily moisturizer then you are going to see your skin lighten and brighten with a dewy look.

Let me share with you my concerns with face moisturizers, my skin is the most sensitive no moisturizer has helped till date and because moisturizing is so essential I simply switched to using a body lotion as a face moisturizer. There are a few body lotions in the market that act well as a face moisturizer.

I love Olay skin care line, all their products seem to be fantastic. When I heard about this product I thought of giving this a fair chance because honestly I was still hunting for a good suitable moisturizer. I have been using Olay White Radiance Moisturiser for over 2 weeks now, by now all other moisturizers I had tried made my skin miserable by leaving behind Redness and pimples. Thankfully with Olay I saw positive results it kept my skin moisturized without making it look oily or greasy for almost entire day. There were no signs of pimples or redness. It gives a radiant glow by reducing the appearance of dark spots. It makes skin look healthy and smooth.IMG_5859

It is suitable for all skin types and all age groups , it has a beautiful mild scent that you are going to love.

How to use : Just apply all over your clean face as a morning moisturizer and repeat the same twice a day. You can also apply foundation and makeup over it acts as a dewy primer.

This has been the only product I use on my no makeup days, It is something I can’t see myself not repurchasing.

Mini Skincare

PicsArt_10-30-11.27.38I can’t believe It is the end of October already, here is my mini skin care essentials. Those products which are a necessity to us but we cant carry them all time due to their unfriendly size.

I love sample products they look tiny, cute and they can be easily transported besides they are also convenient I don’t have to purchase a 100ml product and then realize that it’s not meant for me.

Having said that samples or mini products are rare in stock and are not reasonably priced.

Here is my mini skin care that I carry all time and it doesn’t occupy a lot of space.

PicsArt_10-30-01.08.08

PicsArt_10-30-11.35.10

Nivea whitening deodorant : Just like brushing your teeth, washing your face applying deodorant is a beauty task we never forget to perform, because deodorant reduces skin odor. Even though deodorants claims to last 24-48 hours you know that’s not the case, we prefer to stay fresh and smell good all the time hence we cultivate a habit of carrying deodorant everywhere we go which is pretty inconvenient as they are usually 100ml or more. I got my hands on Nivea whitening deodorant – 30ml, very convenient to use there are lots In market available in sample sizes.

Titan Skin Perfume: If a deodorant is not sufficient or if you are a person who likes to wear perfume all the time then you need a sample of a deodorant available from 1ml -30ml, rare to find usually available as samples at showrooms, let me remind you they are pretty expensive and worth buying as you can’t carry you most expensive bottle of perfume and fear to lose it or break it.

PicsArt_10-30-11.38.12

Zuni hand sanitizer : Keeping hands sanitize where ever we go helps in killing bacteria instantly, but in most situations we struggle to get a sanitizer or access soap. As a professional makeup artist the first thing we were thought is sanitizing hands before prepping so this is my 2nd most essential skin care product.

Himalaya moisturizer : By now all of us know the importance of moisturizing face it helps in preventing dry skin, sometimes my face tends to dry out way too much probably due to weather and makeup that I wear, hence I always manage to carry a tiny moisturizer tube, and this one is my favourite in fact all baby products are.

PicsArt_10-30-11.36.15

Kama Face Cream: A mini face cream that helps cover dark spots or gives a decent coverage should always deserve a special place in your make up bag.

Fiama Facewash/ shower gel : You must be wondering why a face wash/shower gel, very rare do we come across situations where we need a shower gel mostly when we have to visit friends and relatives place for an overnight stay. In order to maintain hygiene I prefer to carry my mini shower gel. This is a new launch by Fiama do check out.

PicsArt_10-30-11.39.53

Nivea body lotion: If you are anything like me who tends to moisturize skin specially hands every 30mintues then you definitely need a mini body lotion available in between 10ml -30ml. This one is 18ml and I must admit it is the most cutest packaging ever.

Nivea Lip Balm: Is there anyone who can stay without this ? I guess you know why it is so essential to carry lip balm all the time even if you miss out on the above 7 products.

Thanks for reading, do share your thoughts on what skin care essentials do you carry . Let me know in the comments below.

My Recent Lipstick Picks

Lipsticks are without a doubt my favourite makeup item, I cant get enough of them. As we all know Matte Lip products currently are the hottest lips around. There are some lipsticks in this list I wish I tried sooner especially the nude ones, because finally I tried them and fall head over heels.

                                                     5 Nude Lipstick Picks

File_000 (8)Sugar Matte As Hell Crayon – Viola(Mauve Nude) Rs: 799

This Shade is just lovely, this is my recent most used lip crayon. Its mauve nude that’s going to compliment all skin tones. Its matte finish and lasts as long as 6-7 hours without touch up. This will also keep the moisture locked. If you are looking one nude lipstick then probably you are looking for this.

File_007

Lakme 9-5 Matte Lip Color – Brownie point Rs: 450/-

This is a very pretty shade, perfect for office and daily wear. I have seen so many people wear this and suit it so much, it really is gorgeous! Matte and moisturizing. This is the shade im going to stick on to forever.

File_008

Lakme 9-5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color – Blush Velvet Rs: 600

Another beautiful shade in my matte lip collection, this looks almost like Sugar matte viola but is less pigmented. This is the kind of shade I would love to wear with smokey or heavy eye makeup. Otherwise this may look a little pale. I was surprised to see this last almost 9 hours with absolutely no touch up. This is a very impressive product as it can also be used as blush, thou it dint look great on me as i prefer powder blush you might want to give this both ways.

File_004 (3)

Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss – Soft Nude : Rs: 279

This Is the most beautiful nude lip gloss ever, I must admit in a very short span of time Essence XXXL soft nude has taken its permanent place in my makeup kit. I Literally cannot imagine stepping out with out this. It’s not complete matte since it’s a gloss, however its a great replacement to a transparent gloss. It has a strong chocolate smells which is so tempting that I promise you will end up eating this gloss 😉

File_005

Nykaa So Matte Lipstick – Irish Coffee Rs: 399

This is a pretty brown shade. It claims to be matte but it has a creamy texture definitely not matte. I have fair skin tone this shade dint look all that great on me. Probably those who love brown lip shades might consider this one.

                5 Pink Lipstick Picks

Colorbar Velvet Matte–Peach Crush Rs: 325

Beautiful dark pink made for all pink fans, highly pigmented and reasonably gorgeous shade.

File_006

Faces Ultime Pro Longwear Matte Lipsticks – Read My Lips Rs:749

The perfect matte magenta shade. I love the shade and the formula I recommend this to all the pink shade lovers.File_005 (1)

Maybelline New York Powder Matte – Technically Pink Rs: 500

This is beautiful baby pink shade that will suite fair to medium skin tone, however I feel the formula isn’t that great. It’s too powdery and doesn’t apply evenly on lips, it looks patchy and deposited at places. I was disappointed because I have been looking for this particular shade for ages but with this formulation I have to work a lot to make it look decent on my lips.

File_003 (2)

Faces Ultime Pre Matte Lip Crayon – Peach Me Rs: 799

This shade was the most talked about among faces new range of lip crayons, hence I bought it too. I wasn’t disappointed because the formula, texture and staying power is beyond imagination. But this is one of those shades that doesn’t look good on me thou its meant for fair to medium skin tone.

File_004 (2)

Maybelline Colorshow Creamy Matte – Pink Power Rs: 350

This shade looks beautiful in pictures, however it is muted pink it will only suit very fair skin tone. Or probably you can match this with a heavy eye makeup.

File_002 (3)

So those were my recent purchases, I love them all but If I have to choose one nude and one pink lipstick among these. I would declare Faces Read My Lips among pinks and Sugar Viola among Nudes that won my heart.

This is not the first time I’m writing about Ryaal, you’ve probably seen their organic skin care products everywhere by now, however this is the first that I’m trying activated charcoal scrub.

Ever since I heard about the charcoal scrubs I always wanted to try them. Looking at its ingredients list I choose to try Ryaal Black mess. Everything you need to face mask it up, is already in this Little tub. I mean this acts as a Face cleanser, scrub and mask.PicsArt_10-19-09.31.07

Packaging: Comes in small size black matt finish tub, The kind of packaging to fall for

Paraben Free: Not mentioned

Smell: Smells like cool mint.

Texture: Thick

How I Use: Scoop out very little quantity of product in a clean bowl, mix some water/rosewater to form paste. Apply evenly leaving out your mouth and eye area. Gently scrub after the paste is semi damp and wash away with cold water.

My Thoughts: Ryaal has made a genuine effort to make you feel good about your skin. My experience with this scrub has been really cool, I mean that when you’re wearing this face mask you literally feel like you’re icing your skin, it’s a great stress buster.

The face mask also softens your skin, it’s a very pleasant feeling to pamper your skin with Ryaal black mess face scrub, I have a sensitive skin so I thought there was a chance my skin would be red due to clay however I didn’t experience any discomforts.PicsArt_10-19-09.08.05

The results are quiet good, As a beauty blogger I’m prepared for all things after using various skin care products. However after use my skin feels extremely soft and clean, my pores are minimized my skin feels fresh. It Ensures a flawless and noticeable skin texture.

Final Verdict: : Your skin is going to feel clean and fresh and this fresh feeling is natural and not chemical based. For me Ryaal charcoal scrub has been a great addition to my skin care.

The only disappointment is that it doesn’t have the product shelf or price mentioned on the tub.

Will I Repurchase: Even if I use it twice a week, this is going to last nearly a year, I’m not going to forget how much I’m In love with this product, so yes this has been added to my skin care kit forever. It’s a nice face mask/scrub/cleanser I’m glad I’ve given it a go you can buy this at amazon or http://www.ryaal.com

I have one face, I wouldn’t deny the fact that I have more products than I can ever use or need. Does that stop me from trying the new makeup launches ? the answer is NO .

I’m a makeup junky even if I wasnt a beauty blogger I wouldn’t stop exploring and spending excessive amount on makeup.

I have been this way since I was a teenager, my investments have always been colourful, full coverage and textured 😉

Every product that is choose feels promising and effective unless I decide to stop using them, hence I give it 3-4 weeks to see how well the product performs before I bring to you an honest review.

So whats new to review ?

Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick.

File_002 (7)I have been wanting to try this from a really long time after hearing a lot good things about this concealer. I have never really tried a concealer come foundation stick before, so I was excited to see how it works.

When I think of stick foundation/ concealer I think of cake, because they are generally thick in nature but it’s not that way at all i realised after using this product.

Performance wise it is great It gave me a flawless natural look with full coverage. What I love the most about stick concealers/foundation is the application part you just have to draw a few lines and blend it.

I did a little physically activity to see if it holds up well, and I actually love this concealer/foundation it looks stunning even after 6hours, however it did feel a little oily which all foundations do after a few hours.

File_001 (9)

There are two ways of using this product.

  1. You can use a foundation by applying it all over your face and neck, it gives natural look and medium to full coverage by building up.
  2. You can use this as a concealer by just applying on the areas you would like to conceal, it gives beautiful coverage. I prefer this as a concealer as I feel on top of foundation it blends easily.

My Final thoughts it is a great concealer, it covers the dark circles, very light weight, suitable for all skin types with staying power 6-7 hours.

I bought mine for Rs.675 at Nykaa.

Could This Be The Foundation That Rules Me ?

File_002 (4)

I’m constantly trying new foundations and I got my hands on Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. Lots and lots of beauty bloggers have already reviewed it and filmed it I may be too late to bring this to your notice however I wanted to review this foundation in particular for the reason being it has been the most talked about and highly in demand from the time it was launched and right until now. So I wanted to tell you why you need to have this in your makeup wardrobe.

File_006 (1)

I’m pretty good at figuring out if I like something right away. May be that’s why I love reviewing make up and skin care products.

Available in 14 Shades, suitable for all skin types. I particularly love the way this product is packaged it comes in a light weight adorable little bottle. Now this foundation is in the form of liquid with great texture that can be used with brush, beauty blender or even fingers it blends beautifully either ways.

File_003 (3)

It has a smooth texture with medium coverage, it’s a solid good foundation it doesn’t have a hint of that chalky  or greasy like  some foundations have instead it gives comfortable flawless radiant look.

I’m really surprised by how much I loved this foundation, I didn’t think I would love it so much. It’s a perfect solid light weight comfortable medium coverage foundation for day-to-day use. However you have to touch up throughout the day if you’re wearing it for long and if you like the matte look as it gets a little shinier.

By now you know how much I’m into Maybelline, this one is a win for me as it works on improving the look and texture of my natural complexion.

I do not regret paying Rs.525 for this one.

File_005 (1)

How much would you pay for a product as lovely as this ?

The Face Shop Mask Sheets

File_000 (7)The older I grow the more precious I’m about my skin. I’m no skin expert but with my personal experience I have learnt that no matter how good the skin care products are or how well we pamper our skin. What we eat is equally important to our skin and hair.

I’m someone who has always lived on junk food, doesn’t it grab more attention than the boring vegetables that are refrigerated. So why not?

File_008 (2)

Well, I have had my fair share of skin disasters in the past due to my unhealthy attitude towards food.

As the name says skin care products, these products I’m sharing with you today are one the effective ways of taking care of your skin.

The Face Shop is a South-Korea based skincare line that provides fabulous skin care products.

This Face mask sheets are a onetime use facial mask. It claims to provides perfect facial care at home and leaves skin soft and supple in a couple of minutes.

File_009 (1)

My experience with these face mask sheet has been great, it has a nice cooling effect A few hours after usage I noticed my skin looked healthy and glowing.

  • It had blurred out my pores.
  • My acne had disappeared that surprised me a lot, as I did not expect it to do such a great job.
  • It is quiet moisturizing.
  • skin continued to feel healthy and glowing for the next 3-4days.

How to use.

  1. Cleanse your face and apply toner.
  2. Unfold the mask sheet and spread over the face.
  3. Take the left over serum from the package and massage it over neck area or hands to ensure you utilize it and not waste any product.
  4. Set a timer for 15-20 mins as per instructions.
  5. Take the mask off after 15mins and gently massage or pat the skin (Do not rub) and rinse it with water.

These sheet masks are anytime better than the facials at any Spa.

I highly recommend these sheet masks.

I would suggest you to apply the mask before going to bed as the serum takes time to show its effect.

Tip : If you are acne prone go far Celendula mask sheet you will be surprised how flawless it makes your skin look.

Bottle Of goodness

File_000 (5)This Mascara needs no introduction, there has been talks about this mascara that is rumored to give GREAT results making the lashes look ravishing.

Looking at its lovely packaging my first impression was already positive and more over I totally love mascara’s I cannot think of stepping out without one.

For a long period of time I have gotten use to Maybelline masacara’s we all know why. However Lakme mascara was the first mascara that I tried as a teenager hence I wanted to give this a fair chance.

File_000 (6)

How does it work ?

Well, Its like a typical mascara if you over coat it obviously it is going to look a little clumpy, I don’t like the water proof mascara’s so I always go for water resistant  ones.

Its an amazing mascara it adds volumes and gives length, separates eyelashes, holds my curls lasts all day and doesn’t smudge. It meets all the expectations.

It washes off fairly easy with makeup remover or even just water.

Anybody I have recommended this mascara to have loved it. it’s a bottle of goodness

Tips : For best results look down and apply the mascara on to the top lashes from ROOTS DOWNWARDS, then look up and brush the top lashes upwards. Then, still looking up brush mascara on lower lashes.

The Faceshop Cleansing Foam

File_000 (3)

File_001 (4)

I regret taking such good care of my skin said no one ever. Are you anything  like me forever trying one hundred and one new products.

I have learned that skin care comes first, then makeup. To ensure you have a clean and clear canvas to work on, your skin requires commitment. Because beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight.

The basic rules are cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing your skin on a regular basis.

A cleanser is used to rid your face of dirt, oil, pollution just like a face wash.

Ask anyone why they fail to give time to their skin, the main reason will be its time-consuming.

The Faceshop Cleansing Foam might be the game changer people have been waiting for as this has become my favorite cleanser in no time.

File_009

The great thing about this cleanser is it instantly brightens the skin, It really does moisturizes and softens the skin. It does the job of cleaning the skin.

It has a sweet refreshing fragrance, my skin feels soft and bouncy after every usage. I prefer applying a toner and moisturizing my skin soon after cleansing it as the effect stays for longer.

Applaud the brand for coming up with such great skin care products, looking forward to try all of their new launches.

In addition the tube is pretty huge which means even though you use it every day it going to suffice min of 6months as per my calculation so another reason to buy this pretty tube.

Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

In the lovely world of makeup Lipsticks have always been my most favorite, I still remember as a teenager I use to save my pocket-money not for chocolates or toys but a lipstick.

Today I will be sharing my views and thoughts on the newly launched Lakme Enrich Lip Crayons.

File_001 (2)

Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon are available in 10shades. There are Reds, Pinks, Peaches and Browns.

I bought them in 2 shades peach magnet and Pink burst. It comes with a good quality sharpener which is very convenient.File_002 (3)

The formula isn’t great but it’s pretty good for the price Rs.185. They are not 100% matte; they have satin and creamy texture. They feel very comfortable and light on lips. Staying power is up to 3 hours.

It’s very smooth on application and feels like you are sketching the lips.

To an extent they are moisturizing, however I noticed it does settle in fine lines hence I would recommend you apply a lip balm prior to application.

They are pretty much pigmented; the color pays off with just 1 or 2 swipes.

Performance wise it doesn’t disappoint me, for the price it offers this is a good product to try out. I’m glad I bought them.

If you are looking to try one shade among the all then I recommend peach magnet as this shade gives natural look to your lips.

Priced at Rs.185

Sugar Tip tac toe nail lacquer

Nearly a year ago I got introduced to sugar cosmetics and so far I have tried all of their beauty products.

I’m obsessed with their newly launched compact and liquid lipsticks; I’m totally impressed with the quality they are coming up with.

Today’s review is on the recently launched Tip tac toe nail lacquer in the shade 012 positive pink

IMG_1390

My Thoughts on Tip tac toe nail lacquer

  • Lets begin with the packaging it’s a ravishing thick bottle with a fluffy applicator.
  • The applicator is quite broad and picks the right amount to paint the nail in one stroke.
  • The shades are super pigmented.

IMG_1392

  • Tip tac toe nail lacquer collection is available in 38 beautiful shades
  • They have 3 different finishes Classic, Matte & Pro.
  • They have wide range of glossies, mattes and shimmers.

IMG_1396 (1)

  • The formula of this nail paint is easy to work with.
  • 1 stroke is all you need to get perfect look.
  • The nail paint gets set and dried instantly.
  • It stays nearly a week without getting chipped.

IMG_1391

 

Price 199

BOR Rating : 4.5/5

I highly recommend this product they have tons of amazing shades.

Those who are not aware of Sugar cosmetics let me tell you off late this is one brand I  rely on, without any further thoughts definitely give it a try.

On a hunt for new eyeliner?

Here, I present to you Lakme 9 to 5 Black Impact Liner.

IMG_1397Packaging:  A fun fact about me is that sometimes I get attracted with the packaging and end up buying the product, but end of the day I use some good stuff out there.

With Lakme 9 to 5 Black Impact Liner I bought it pretty much because of its attractive cute little peach bottle.

IMG_1402

My Experience:

As I got home after picking this at the store I immediately wanted to try it, here’s what I noticed.

  • It has a creamy thick consistency.
  • By the look of it, it’s cute and travel Friendly.
  • The applicator is thick which makes the styling difficult, as a makeup artist I cannot think of achieving too many eye liner looks with this brush.
  • It is not intense black but a shade of black.
  • It doesn’t stay for too long, it can stay up to 4-5 hours.
  • It is a great product for dramatic eye makeup.

IMG_1400

  • It gets wiped out easily.
  • If you are looking for a water proof eye liner this one is not for you.
  • It is not pigmented

BOR Ratings : 2/5

To be honest I was disappointed with my purchase.

It retails for Rs.225 (3.5ml) it is not worth the price

IMG_1403

lakme 9 to 5 black impact liner is not a must have, you might want to pick it up if you like grayish smokey look or you can skip this one.

Hedonista Fresh Face Scrub

Hello Ladies,

Today I thought I’d share my views on “Hedonista Fresh Face Scrub”.

I enjoy pampering my skin specially those products that are easy to use and requires less effort from my end.

The latest skin care launch is the Hedonista Fresh Face Scrub.

I received this sample size product in a colorful cute little plastic tub, full-size product comes in transparent tub.

After using this product several times much to the joy 4 weeks later I’m ready to share my opinion on this scrub.

My Thoughts on Hedonista Fresh Face Scrub

  • You exfoliate to remove dead skin, dirt, make up etc, this product does it all.
  • It involves soft cleansing scrub which leaves the skin smooth radiant & refreshing.
  • It’s fairly bulky and sustainably sized tub, it isn’t overly weight so it can be easily transported around.
  • It has a mild strawberry smell.

  • The product is a combination of cream & gel texture with minute granules and tiny coconut particles.
  • No guess-work it’s well formulated and should suit all skin types, ages and needs.
  • The main ingredients lined up are aqua, strawberry seeds & desiccated coconut (might be a concern for those with oily skin) I have combination skin and this product has done wonders to my skin without producing any oil.

Tips on usage

Wet your skin with warm water take a little product and massage your skin gently for a minute and rinse the scrub off your face (Exfoliate twice a week)

Price: INR 1045 for 105 gm, Get hold of this product at Amazon.

BOR Rating: 3.5

 I rate this product 3.5 it’s an amazing product but quiet expensive as a scrub.

This May not suit oily skin.

The effect doesnt stay for too long, in less than 24hours your skin is back to its normal condition.

In conclusion it is a good product to pamper your skin.

What do you think about this product?

Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation

Hey Guys,

I’m back with another review and I totally love doing this. Cushion foundations have been over the place lately.

What are cushion foundations?Basically it is a liquid foundation housed in a sponge/cushion.

So today’s review is going to be The Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation. I ordered this from Amazon for INR 999.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Off late I buy most of my cosmetics online and I randomly pick foundation shades close to my skin tone; however I will soon post the right way of finding your foundation shade and methods of foundation application.

Let me start with the review and find out how this Maybelline Cushion Foundation Does.

I have had good luck with the Maybelline foundations, I have used their Dream Liquid Mousse, Fit me, Dream Satin, Dream velvet and few others. I was excited about this foundation as this is my first cushion foundation, I have never used a cushion foundation before.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

I usually don’t apply anything except moisturizer while I’m doing the first impression,because I like to see how foundations do on their own.

My Experience

  • I applied this early morning on the day of my shoot and honestly I love the coverage of this cushion foundation.
  • The packaging is very convenient as it comes with a sponge and a mirror.
  • It applies very easily feels like a liquid foundation, this was super quick to blend. It did not need too much effort.
  • I kind of feel that this shade Ivory is a little white, but I corrected that with a little darker shade concealer and powder (I use this technique of correcting the colors).
  • A normal amount of foundation gives full coverage which is quite impressive. However if you have dark under eye or dark spots you will have to follow-up with a concealer.
  • I noticed the sponge felt a little hard on my skin so I switched to a beauty blender, you might want to use a foundation brush or a beauty blender depends on how well you can work with it.
  • The finish of this cushion foundation is dewy and natural.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Test:

6 Hours later here is what I have to say about the cushion foundation.

  • The foundation has gotten a little more dewy and shiny, just like all foundations do this one as well gets oily after a few hours so people with oily skin needs to set this really well with the powder.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

  • The coverage still looks the same.
  • It doesn’t get greasy and there are no breakouts. I hate when my skin gets dry after hours of foundation application
  • It looks like an amazing full coverage foundation for dry skin type.
  • I have a combination skin and the longer I wore it the more shinier it got
  • Even those with combination skin and oily skin can give this a fair chance as it works really well with powdering.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Glow Rating : 3.5

I would rate Maybelline Dream Cushion Foundation 3.5.

I’m more towards matte foundations as it saves time, doesn’t look oily and  I don’t have to go back and powder it often.

Maybelline Dream Cushion is a great foundation, give it a try and let me know you thoughts on this.

I hope this was helpful if you are reading it.

If Precision Is What You Are After Then, Look No Further.

One thing I like about makeup is you can change the whole look by just drawing a thin line on your eyelid, yes you got me right. Today we are going to talk about one of the most essential cosmetic product.

Every makeup bag deserves good eyeliner; I have tried my share of eyeliners some of them are great, some of them are not.

I love wearing winged eyeliner, but I want it to be as precise as possible. I do not want to spend a lot of time doing my eyeliner.

I like gel eyeliner but it need to have good brushes & good gel eyeliner formulation, there is liquid and pencil eyeliners. Again, it’s hard to work with them unless you have good brushes and the right technique.

So the solution for all this is the Maybelline Newyork The Colossal Liner I found.

 Did it work for me? Find out below.My Experience:

  • This is one of the slimmest eye liner pens in the market.
  • It has ultra fine tapered tip which makes the application easier to draw a perfect wing and get your desired eye liner look.
  • Usually with other eyeliners I have to go back twice or thrice to get the right amount and color, but this one doesn’t require multiple application.
  • It glides effortlessly over the lash line.
  • It’s incredibly long wearing; it lasts nearly 8-9 hours.

Colossal

  • The applicator allows to give heavy and as light look as possible.
  • It’s a known fact that eyeliner application takes time, Maybelline colossal liner makes the application less time-consuming due to the grip the applicator holds.
  • It is super intense, with just one strike you can get dark black look.
  • Another important thing I would like to mention is, it is Smudge proof and does not fade at all even after 8-9hours.
  • It goes on smoothly & applies well.

Colossal2

Priced at Rs.425.

Glow Rating : 4.8/5

This eyeliner is definitely a great invention in the world of makeup; you must be wondering why I rated Maybelline Newyork The Colossal Liner 4.8 if it is that amazing.

Well there is one drawback which might be a concern to most of us, It’s quite obvious that gel eyeliner in the form of Sketch doesn’t go a long way.

In my case I apply it every day and it got over in less than 45days that leaves you with no eye liner and most of us cannot spend on the same product over and again.

Having said that, I highly recommend Maybelline Newyork The Colossal Liner.

Try it and let me know what you think about this product.

Until next time have a great week ahead & enjoy the music exclusively for you guys:)

The Blushed Nudes

If you have been curious about the Maybelline Blushed Nudes Palette. Well, wonder no longer because today I’m going to review it and let u know how the product performs and if it is worth the price.

HUGX6036

Let us begin 🙂

Packaging : The shades look very pretty, The theme of the palette is appealing as it’s Infused with rose gold pigments.

My Experience:

  • It’s a beautiful palette for everyday natural look, u can create different soft & subtle looks.
  • They have mapped out how you can use the shades as Quads, Trios & Duos, they have given lots of different ways to use the eyeshadow which is interesting & helpful for beginners.
  • You don’t tend to see quite a difference between the colors when you apply them as lot of colors is close to each other.VZXL6533
  • The shade are reasonably smooth & blends easily.
  • Shades lack pigmentation you have to work a lot to get a little color on your lid.
  • Eye shadows in this palette work best when you apply it with your finger rather than brush.
  • Eye base, eye primer or concealer is absolutely essential for this eye shadow.
  • Those who like soft look will love this palette

JUVJ1863

  • My personal experience while i used this palette on a model with light eyes, if you have light eyes, I promise this will make them seem so much more intense.
  • If you are girl who likes bold look then to get your desired look you have to work a lot so probably this is not for you.
  • If you like a softer natural look u can achieve that easily.

This picture gives you the Instructions and ingredients of how you can use this palette for best results.

What I don’t like about Maybelline Blushed Nudes Palette ?

My experience with this palette is pretty good but,

  • It takes a lot of work to get a little color.
  • You need to be careful while applying as they do have a lot of fall out.
  • I personally love matte but this one has only one matte shade, I wish there was more matte shades in the palette.
  • Lack Of pigmentation.
  • Staying power approximately 4-5hrs.

NVSU6009

Showing you swatches in the form of Quads

  1. Coppery peachy look (more like highlighters)
  2. 2nd set of swatches are from middle 4 that’s more of Golden & Gray Taupe group
  3. 3rd set of swatches are from last 4 which are the plums

Glow Ratings : 3/5

For Rs 899 I feel like it’s not a waste of money as there are a lot of looks you can get out of it, but It’s not what I was expecting for so it’s a mixed feeling I’m happy and a little unhappy with the palette.

Natural Body Lotion  

By the time winter begins to fade away leaving the blossom of spring all of us try a tons of body lotions, The moms co natural body lotion is one of the many body lotions I tried this winter.

The Moms Co has designed their products beautifully, The body lotion’s texture feels light, It spreads and observers well into the skin which makes it an ideal everyday lotion. Its enriched with the goodness of Shea Butter that moisturizes and soothes the skin and leaves the skin healthy and glowing.

Its more than just a body lotion It doesn’t feel oily or greasy, it has a mild scent of essentials oils it also keeps the skin moisturized for almost entire day however I like to use the body lotion frequently hence I reapply after every 5-6 hours. I would suggest applying this twice a day to keep skin moisturized for a longer period of time.

Its rich in keeping the skin moisturized for a long period of time. It has a beautiful mild scent to it that lasts for sometime after taking shower.  The quality of these products are excellent.

Yashasvi- The Victory Store Homemade Organic Skincare Products. 

Yashasvi – The Victory Store is a homemade store they are into organic & chemical free skin care products.

When it comes to skincare though, I’ve always been a bit more skeptical however I  love the idea of going back to the basics with beauty, with natural homemade ways.

When I got a hello note by Yashasvi the victory store I figured I should finally give it a try and I decided to try  there skin care regime for a week and use only there homemade products .

Today I’m going to review Yashasvi Face Mask Charcoal,  Deep Conditioning Hair Oil,  Body lep (Body pack) . Let’s begin with the packaging of these products all the products are packed really well there is no chance of leakage, they look pretty decent and can be easily transported.. However I wish it had a ingredient list, MRP & Shelf life.

Let’s start with charcoal mask which is made up of charcoal, aloevera, tea tree & blend of essential oils. While tea tree is good for acne & deep Cleansing charcoal & aleovera removes impurities & gives fresh and instant glow to skin.. Hence this mask is very beneficial & works well in pampering your skin. 

How to use? 

Apply on clean face & leave it for 10-15 mins & rinse with water.

Shelf life – 6 months 

Price : Rs. 550 

If you are a person who loves handmade and 100% organic skin care products then you should definitely give this a try.

Deep Conditioning Hair Oil is a blend of argan oil,  jojoba oil, almond oil along with essential oils.  Argan oil makes hair softer, silkier and shinier and acts as a ideal hair conditioner and also helps to treat split ends and frizzy hair. Almond oil helps in hair growth to a great extend and jojoba oil is capable of moisturizing hair and It can help hair cells to reproduce themselves at a rapid pace.

So this is a great blend of all essential products and since it’s homemade with 100% natural ingredients this definitely deserves a place in your hair care regime. 

This Retails for Rs. 600 with 1year shelf life. 

Body Lep Is basically a body pack it Contains some amazingly effective ingredients such as besan, tomato, sandalwood, rose , lemon , manjistha etc. 

I personally like this body pack its a nice way to pamper with a nice blend of all these essential natural ingredients,  I appreciate the effort they have put in to make this product. I have used almost all face packs and body packs with these ingredients but this is the first time I was trying a mixture of all of them together and I must say it was a great experience. I definitely recommend you try this as it won’t disappoint you. 

How to use? 

Mix with curd or milk or rose water and apply. Let it semidry and scrub it off.

1year shelf life Retails for Rs. 500.
