My Experience with SUGAR It’s A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick 04 Coraline in the City

Starting with the packaging I liked the sleek and classy square finish packaging. The shade Coraline in the City is a beautiful orangey-coral. It will suit any complexion and perks up my yellowish skintone. It reminds me of “MIRANDA”. The colour isn’t OTT it is wearable enough to be worn in office. This shade would look great in upcoming summers giving a sun-kissed look to our complexion. The shade looks opaque in 2-3 swipes. The application is a bit creamy which settles in a semi-matte finish. The lipstick is not hydrating so we need to exfoliate our lips before applying the lipstick. The lipstick stays upto 4-5 hours on my lips post which it becomes lighter and doesn’t totally go off.  That way it is very well pigmented and doesn’t dry out the lips either. Overall, I am quite happy with the new range and can’t wait to try the other shades. I am glad they have kept the price reasonable. I am sure these will sell like hotcakes.

Pros

  • Sleek packaging
  • Sassy shade
  • The shade brightens up the complexion
  • Will suit every skintone
  • Semi matte finish
  • Stays upto 4-5 hours
  • Well pigmented
  • Reasonable pricing
  • Doesn’t dry out the lips
  • Free from mineral oil, D5, parabens & nano-ingredients.

Cons

  • Takes 2-3 swipes

Ratings– 4.5/5

Recommendation – I am head over heels on this shade. I don’t like orangey shades, but this has a good blend of colors which looks fun and sassy on Indian skintones. Now, I am tempted to try other shades too.

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com!

Hello beauties,

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

I know its been like ages that I have pen down something. I have been MIA from Snapchat, Instagram etc. Nevertheless, Life look much sorted now and things started looking up. I got a new job which I will be starting from Monday. I am pretty excited and nervous. I realised that a person should never sit idle. An idle mind is a devil’s workshop. I took a break from my work and I am resuming soon. Well, I want to share my beauty shopping experience from Jabong.com. Like I said, I am going to start with work soon so I thought let’s do a bit of shopping and get myself all worked up. I bought few formal shirts and blouses, got a few scarves. While I was looking for that perfect office wear lipstick, I reached Jabong. Its quite rare that we girls buy cosmetics from Jabong.com. We usually go to that beauty centric website to buy something because we think we’ll get a better discount there. I was eyeing the Lakme 9 to 5 Range collection for office wear shades.

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

I compared across all platforms and found Jabong selling the Lakme lipsticks at the cheapest price. I received this at a discounted price of Rs. 360 originally it is for Rs. 450. Quite a deal..Isn’t it? The 9 to 5 range is the best when you are looking for basic pinks, browns and mauves which are wearable and also feels comfortable on lips. I love the lakme 9 to 5 range for the light feel and longevity. I have loads of bright lipsticks and hardly any nude or browns. As usual, my order arrived within 3 days with proper bubble wrap packaging. The lipstick was housed in Jabong’s small cardboard orange box. That is something rare!

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

So this is how the shade looks on me.. It gives me a feel of “My lips but better”. The shade Red chaos is nowhere near to Red like you can see. Don’t know what Lakme was thinking while naming the shades? But I am happy with the texture, shade and longevity.  Jabong is my online shopping destination for apparels but now I can trust the website for beauty buying too. I loved the endless discounts they have on major brands. If there is no sale one can always make use of Jabong coupons to buy the products pending in the wishlist. I do this often, I keep collecting things in my cart and as soon as there is any discounts or coupons available. I quickly go ahead and make the purchase. I have bought stuff like NIKE, PUMA, VERO MODA using the trick.  And now I do the same with L’Oreal, Make up Revolution etc. Do check out Jabong.com for the latest offers on clothes, beauty etc. I can’t share everything on blog so those of you who want to see my purchases. Follow me on snapchat: erica.eleganza.  I share my life on Snapchat which includes a lot of shopping of course 😛

LOTD- Maxi Slit Top Love

Hello divas,

Today, I felt like dressing up, it was a pleasant Sunday evening and I was on a date with my bae. The moment he told me we are leaving at 4pm. I looked at the clock and it was 12pm. Damn, no hair done, no nails done, no “ME” done. In short, I quickly had to take shower, do my nails, find out what I’ve to wear, decide on matching shoes and accessories. That’s when my new KOOVS Exclusive Print maxi slit top came to rescue which was also a gift by “him” to me. The moment he saw me, he smiled and decided to take some pictures of mine. And how can I say NO to pictures. 😛 I was happy and thought this would be a perfect idea to blog about and come up with my first ever OOTD on blogosphere.  This post is going to be full of pictures so stay tuned.

I am very fond of statement neckpieces, I’ve got a huge collection of mostly boho necklaces. You will get to see each of them as and when I do a LOTD. I am matching this silver tribal neckpiece with my maxi slit top, thats the only accessory I am wearing in my outfit. Inside the top, I chose to wear a JOCKEY white cami, as the material was see through, made of polyster and the cut was too deep. If you are bold enough to wear a white bralette which is very much in fashion these days. I’ll suggest go for it and flaunt your flat abs. For others, try it with the Cami.

Hello Beauties,

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Red Lipstick Pure Vermeil
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Red Lipstick Pure Vermeil

I am back with another review its a long name above like you can already see. I really wanna be frequent with writing. Unfortunately, I don’t get enough time not that I am lazy. Its my job which keeps me occupied and few other activities. Oh yes! I am going to join Zumba from tomorrow. Not really join though.. Its more like a demo class I am going to attend. And if I like it I will join. Will keep you guys posted with my Zumba thingy! Coming back to the topic, well today I am going to review on L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Red Lipstick Pure Vermeil. I loved the Star collection and couldn’t resist buying PURE SCARLETO, PURE VERMEIL, PURE AMARANTHE, PURE GARNET. I laid my hands on these beauties. PURE VERMEIL being my favourite. They all are red but different reds.

L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Red Lipstick Pure Vermeil

Shade

Pure Vermeil is a beautiful “Sindoori” shade. Its more like a pinkish corally red. I can’t really explain the color. But If you ask me which one would I suggest out of the range that would be “PURE VERMEIL”. It instantly brightens up your face and brings out your features. It’s a perfect bridal as well as party wear shade. However, I am one of those that can simply wear a sweatshirt, wear my jeans and move out with only RED lipstick on a bareface. I totally dig RED lipstick. I am one of those gals who would choose RED over NUDE. Bright colors are my weakness and this is a perfect bright shade to lift your mood and look both.

Texture

The lipstick is soft matte. I mean at first its quite moisturising and then it settles down to a nice matte which I totally adore. I am a matte lover and this is not one of those hard matte’s if you know what I mean. The only thing you need to exfoliate your lips before wearing this or it may accentuate fine lines and can look flaky.

Pigmentation & Staying Power

It’s highly pigmented and doesn’t need more than two swipes to bring out the actual shade. If you want to go to work, one swipe is enough. For a party, 2-3 swipes would bring out the real shade and look ravishing. The staying power is also excellent, it stays upto 5-6hrs on me and then leaves a slight pinkish tint behind which doesn’t look bad at all. It can be easily removed with any make up remover. Neither does it stain nor transfer. So I think it’s a great buy for the cost it comes. The only thing is this lipstick breaks easily so need to refrigerate it.

Pros

  • Classy packaging
  • Great texture
  • Non transferable
  • Great pigmentation
  • Greater staying power
  • Unique shade, pinkish corally red
  • Soft matte
  • Doesn’t accentuate fine lips
  • Give fuller lips
  • Signature of the brand ambassadors
  • Can be a great bridal wear lipstick

Cons –

  • Expensive
  • It breaks easily so have to refrigerate it

Rating – 4.5/5

My Recommendation – I love this shade and before it gets over I am planning to keep a back up. I have also gifted this shade to one of my friend and she totally adores it. <3

Hello beauties,

IMG_7632
Rimmel London Sexy Curves Full Figure Extra Volume Mascara

Yes I am back to blogging and it feels really great to write again from where I started. You are right..I started from product reviews and here I am writing on a mascara which was on my mind from quite some time. I love wearing wearing make up and I always keep on trying new products. I feel with the booming beauty industry we have lot of products to explore, some brand always leading , some competing and some getting better than the Best! Well, that’s Life! Need is the mother of Invention as they say! So today I present to you one such product which can give tough competition to other mascaras in the market. I love RIMMEL products, I really love this brand from the Stay matte powder to their lipstick and gloss. I tried it all and it never failed me. I have finished almost 8-9 pans of the STAY MATTE powder and its my Holy GRAIL till date.  Coming back to RIMMEL LONDON SEXY CURVES FULL FIGURE EXTRA VOLUME MASCARA… Hushhh! That’s quite a long name to remember! Well… longer the name longer the benefits with this product!

My Experience with Rimmel London Sexy Curves Full Figure Extra Volume Mascara

So here is the story I was really ready to spend on a good mascara. Because, I finished my previous one which was Rimmel Scandal eyes mascara and so I ran to the beauty store to look for a very good infact best one. I assumed Loreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara was one of the best mascara’s in the market. But when I tried it at the beauty centre it didn’t appeal me that much and then I dragged myself to Rimmel Counter again. There I tried this mascara and immediately loved the effects of it. I never knew that my second mascara will also come from Rimmel. But whatever works for you is BEST for you Right? 😉 This mascara is jet black and waterproof, doesn’t smudge, doesn’t clumps, and doesn’t irritate the eyes. It comes out easily with any make up remover. So you don’t have to wrestle with your lashes. The wand is little complicated but that’s ok as far as it does the job well. Like you would see in the picture it helped me in giving a better volume and curved my lashes perfectly. I don’t have long lashes. But I have decent volume and this mascara worked well with my features. All in all I would say it is a great mascara for both daily wear as well as for occasions. The only thing is I don’t get the desired long lashes like I want. But it never said it lengthens the lashes anyway. Also I hate going to the beauty store in Bandra especially to get Rimmel Products. I know you get Rimmel products on Nykaa.com. But they are mostly out of stock. The availability is a huge problem. They used to serve at PARCOS, INFINITY MALL, MALAD, MUMBAI. Unfortunately, Parcos has shut down and again no Rimmel. I wish someone could just go and tell them to come back. Well all in all if you love a good everyday or anyday mascara do try this ladies you won’t regret. It’s a good buy for sure.

PROS

  • Jet black mascara
  • Smudge free
  • Waterproof
  • Doesn’t irritate eyes
  • Comes out easily with any make up remover
  • Gives your lashes that curvy fuller look
  • Good for everyday anyday wear
  • Stylish glossy packaging

 CONS

  • Doesn’t lengthen as required (never claimed though)
  • Availability is a big issue

Rating- 4/5

My Recommendation – I really want you to try this mascara. It’s great for daily wear and party wear both so you get a two in one deal here. I am sure you won’t regret your purchase. Infact, you might just come and hug me for the advice who knows 😛
