Gala of London Long Stay Liquid Lip Color Review & Swatches

Hello Beautiful,

Gala of London Long Stay Liquid Lip Color Review & Swatches

 

I know you were thinking that I am dead or something by now. But, hey you can call it a reincarnation because I literally forgot how to write a decent article. Its been ages that I have written something in this space. I guess I was suffering from writer’s block. I have spent hours staring at the screen blindly just don’t know what to pen down. But I am super glad that I am back. So now as you can clearly see I have lot of things to talk about, I simply want to cut it short and jump to the review. Today, I am going to talk about Gala of London Long Stay Liquid Lip Color. I am using this brand since my childhood be it an eyeliner, lipstick or kajal I tried it all. And now I am finally reviewing their liquid lipstick which is in par with any other high end brand in the market.

Features:

Price- Rs. 225 for 1.6 gms

SWACTHES OF GALA OF LONDON LIP COLOUR

Packaging-  The packaging looks quite cheap but you can’t expect too much for the price. The tube is opaque and you can easily see through the color from the tube. The product smells like vanilla and its one of the pleasing fragrance that I get to smell in most liquid lipcolors from other brand too. The wand is quite average and with a little work you can apply the liquid lipstick.

Shades-

Fall in Pink-  This is a perfect rosy nude for every medium to fair skin tone beauty. One of the most beautiful nude shade made for Indian Skintones. It can be that ideal nude for the day to night look.

GALA OF LONDON FALL IN PINK LIQUID LIPCOLOR

 

Mochalicious- This is a gorgeous peachy tone nude which will suit every skintone. This is my absolute favourite for everyday wear.

GALA OF LONDON MOCHALICIOUS LIP COLOR

Fire & Ice- This tangerine shade is for the bold hearts. Someone who absolute adore bright shades. This is an amazing shade for summers and monsoon. Suitable to all skintones.

GALA OF LONDON FIRE & ICE LIP COLOR

My Experience with Gala of London Long Stay Lip Color-

These liquid lip colors look like a mini version of various full size liquid lipsticks in the market. It has some of the most pleasing shades that is suitable for most Indian skintones. I am so glad that Indian beauty market has step up their game with liquid lipcolors. The formula is very smooth and medium consistency. You need to exfoliate your lips before applying any liquid lipstick as it looks very patchy and uneven. I always exfoliate and apply it and then it gives me a smooth matte finish. This liquid lipcolor can be drying but that is the case with almost every liquid lipstick. Talking about the longevity, it last for around 6-7 hrs and it tends to fade a little from the center if you eat anything oily. There is a shade for every skintone. From the price point its really affordable but somehow I feel they could increase the quantity of the product. Overall, I would highly recommend this liquid lipcolor for anyone looking out for a good quality matte liquid lipstick.

Pros-

  • Pretty shades.
  • Available online & offline.
  • Affordable.
  • Nicely pigmented.
  • Last 6-7 hrs.
  • Matte, smooth finish.
  • Pleasant fragrance.

Cons-

  • Need more quantity for the price.
  • Need to exfoliate before application.
  • Can improvise on the packaging.

Ratings-  4.5/5

Recommendation-  I would highly recommend you to try this liquid lipcolors. As there are some really pretty shades that compliment Indian skintones. Also its really affordable which earns another brownie point.

5 steps to Festive Glowing Skin

Hello Beautiful!

A very Happy Dhanteras to one and all. With the festive season around the corner, it is absolutely essential to have bright, healthy and glowing skin. The daily rut of life tends to take away the charm of our face making it look tan, dull and lifeless. Women usually turn to fairness bleach to get that instant glow and brightness but bleach is harmful for your skin. Sensitive skin types should not even consider bleach as an option. Our facial skin is extremely delicate and it is 3 times thinner than our body. Keeping that in mind, here are the 5 best ways to get festive glowing skin that is absolutely safe and long-lasting.

1.Drink Lots of Water-

There is no substitute for water. You must have heard this million times by now that drinking water helps in flushing out the toxins helping you get clear, glowing skin. It is highly important to drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water a day to see the actual results. Water helps in clearing acne to a great extent. You can also drink fresh fruit juices incase you can’t drink a lot of water.

2.Exercise/Sweat out-

It’s not practical for everyone to go to gym everyday. But its absolutely possible to run for atleast 30mins everyday. Running helps you get the desired glow as you sweat out. Women who gym, do yoga or who is actively involved in any kind of sport have an infinite glow on their skin. Working out increase your blood flow, gives you an extra boost of energy and helps in getting rid of toxins from your body.

3.Facial Mist-

Whoever created the concept of Facial mist should be blessed by women. Facial mists are a multi-purpose product that helps you to get fresh and radiant looking skin ATM. You can simply carry them in your purse and spritz it on your face everytime you feel tired and dull. A bottle of rose water does wonders to your skin and can also be used as a toner. Facial mists are every bride’s favourite weapon to instant glowing skin.

4.Ice cubes-

Ice cubes are a boon when you haven’t slept enough and you have an important event coming up. Simply run a piece of icecube on your face prior to your makeup. It will increase blood circulation and give healthy, glowing skin. Ice cubes are also very good for minimizing large pores, soothing red and sunburnt skin.

5. VLCC Facial Kit –

When everything fails, facials come to my rescue. I am allergic to products that include bleach. VLCC, thankfully does not include bleach to their facial kit and is completely paraben free. VLCC has some of the best facial kits. Recently, I got a new variant from VLCC known as the VLCC Ayurveda Haldi & Tulsi Facial Kit. There were 5 deluxe size products inside the kit. It includes face wash, face scrub, face gel, face cream and a face pack. As soon as I used the face wash and scrub, my face instantly looked radiant. The smell of haldi and tulsi was therapeutic for my mind. By the end of facial, my face was glowing to glory and that was my best 200 rupees spent. My face looked bright, glowing and prepped up for the festive makeup. This facial kit is my shortcut to instant glow while other methods take time.

So these were our tricks and tips to instant festive glowing skin that works for every occasion. What do you do to get instant glowing skin?

 

Sally Hansen Moisturizing Polish Remover For Dry Brittle Nails Review

Hello lovelies,

Sally Hansen Moisturizing Polish Remover For Dry Brittle Nails Review

It’s time for another review. I have done a lot of makeup posts and product reviews. But this is my first nailcare product on the blog. I must admit that I am biased towards my face and tend to neglect my hands and legs often especially my nails. Over a period of time, they have become dry, brittle and chip off easily. I always had long and strong nails but these days they hardly remain long for a longtime. I realised that Acetone has taking a toll on my nails and they have become weak and lifeless. So I started looking out for options that’s when Sally Hansen Moisturizing Polish Remover for Dry Brittle Nails caught my attention. People left good ratings and reviews on this product on Nykaa so I thought I’ll give this a try and I am happy that I switched.

Sally Hansen Moisturizing Polish Remover For Dry Brittle Nails Review

Product Description-

Removes polish and moisturizes dry, brittle nails. Enriched formula with essential nutrients helps promote strong, healthy-looking nails and cuticles with every use. A special blend of Vitamins and Aloe Vera replaces moisture in dry, damaged nails. For best results: Soak cotton pad in nail polish remover. Press pad firmly on nail surface and wipe until completely clean.

For best results: Soak cotton pad in nail polish remover. Press pad firmly on nail surface and wipe until completely clean.

Price- Rs. 275 for 236.5ml

Sally Hansen Moisturizing Polish Remover Ingredients

Ingredients- 

ACETONE, AQUA/WATER/EAU, PARFUM/FRAGRANCE, ETHOXYDIGLYCOL, BENZYL BENZOATE, PPG-12-PEG-50 LANOLIN, ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF EXTRACT, BENZOPHENONE-3, PANTHENOL, LIMONENE, BUTYLPHENYL METHYLPROPIONAL, HEXYL CINNAMAL, LINALOOL, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, BENZYL SALICYLATE, ALPHA-ISOMETHYL IONONE, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, GERANIOL, AMYL CINNAMAL, CITRONELLOL, BENZYL ALCOHOL, METHYLPARABEN, FD&C BLUE NO. 1 (CI 42090), FD&C GREEN NO. 3 (CI 42053), FD&C YELLOW NO. 5 (CI 19140).

Sally Hansen Moisturizing Polish Remover For Dry Brittle Nails Review

Packaging- It’s quite a big plastic bottle for a nail polish remover. The mint green and orange packaging looks very nice. This is a transparent bottle so you can see how much product is left inside. The mouth of the bottle is too big to pour out the liquid. If you open the first time you will end up pouring a lot. It’s quite possible that it may spill out while travelling. So this is definitely not travel friendly.

Sally Hansen Strengthening Nail Polish Remover Review

My Experience with Sally Hansen Moisturizing Polish Remover For Dry Brittle Nails-

The moment you open the bottle the first thing you will notice is the heavenly fragrance of this product. Unlike Acetone, this nail polish remover has a very charming fragrance that actually lasts longer than any of my body mists. No jokes, it has no chemical smell like our old friend (Acetone). Secondly, you just need to pour it once in the cotton ball and both your hands are sorted. You will not need to add the liquid to the cotton ball 2-3 times to remove your nail polish. It removes even the most stubborn glittery nail polish effectively. I am using this nail polish remover from quite a long time and I see a healthy difference on my nails. They look smooth, healthy and happy. There is no dryness or roughness and the nails have become pretty strong comparatively. Acetone tends to burn my fingers on the edges but I haven’t had any such experience with this nail polish remover. This product is very mild and gentle on my hands. Some may think it is pricey but its absolute value for money considering that one bottle will easily last you atleast 2 years. It just lost points on the unfriendly packaging bit. Like I said the open mouth can led to product wastage and the bottle is also not travel friendly. Apart from that, I have no complains. It is an awesome nail polish remover and I am definitely going to repurchase it again and again.

Pro tip- Take a small jar and put a sponge according to the jar size and add this nail polish remover. Dip your nails in the sponge until the nail polish comes off completely. Take this jar everytime you travel and this is how we make things Travel Friendly. 😀

Sally Hansen Moisturizing Polish Remover For Dry Brittle Nails Review

Pros-

  • Makes nails soft and healthy
  • Removes dryness and roughness
  • Strengthens nails
  • Smells amazing for a long time
  • Works gently
  • Doesn’t burn your fingers like acetone
  • No sticky feeling
  • One cotton ball is enough for both hands
  • Removes glitter nailpolish effectively
  • Great quantity for the price
  • One bottle will last atleast 2yrs
  • Easily available online and top beauty stores

Cons-

  • Open mouth of the bottle can lead to product spillage.
  • Not travel friendly

Rating- 4.8/5

Recommendation- If you are troubled with dry, brittle and unhealthy looking nails, switch to this nail polish remover. You will surely see a huge improvement in the quality of your nails. I highly recommend this product for healthy nails.

Price- Rs. 425 Buy it here.

Packaging- These lipsticks look very pretty in packaging but are not that sturdy. They are very light-weight and tend to slip of the hands easily. Also, the shade names are not mention on the lipstick. The good thing is that the packaging matches the shades of the lipstick so you know what the colour looks like without opening the lipstick.

01 Nude Spice- A warm nude shade which will complement most skintones.

Nykaa Paintstix 01 Nude Spice

02 Cool Girl Nude- This cool toned nude is a darker version of nude that will suit deeper skintones as well.

Nykaa Paintstix 11 Hearts n Kisses

12 Grunge Brown- A vampy dark brown shade.

Nykaa Paintstix 12 Grunge Brown

My Experience with Nykaa Paintstix –

Nykaa Paintstix includes all the possible shades a girl would love to wear. You will find nudes, bright pinks and bolder shades in this range. The texture is semi-matte and smooth. You just need to swipe twice for intense pigmentation and opaque coverage. The longetivity is 4-5 hrs with eating and drinking, it tends to disappear post then. All the shades are damn pretty and none of it looks a replica of the other. They have introduced the grungy bold shades in this range which is very rare as compared to other Indian brands. Paintstix feel very light-weight on the lips and since it’s creamy you may want to outline your lips with a lipliner so that the lipstick does not budge. Women who do not like dry, patchy lips (that matte lipsticks leave) can opt for these semi-matte lipsticks. There are shades like No Chill Orange, Peaches & Cream, Rock n Roll Pink, Rebellious Red and Heart N Kisses which are apt for summers. My favourite is Peaches & Cream, Bombshell Berry, Nude Spice and Chick Flick Pink. I can wear these lipsticks without worrying about the season though as there are so many shades to pick.  I highly recommend these lipsticks to you if you want to (a) experiment some of the coolest shade like Purple Monster, Grunge Brown, and Bombshell Berry. (b) The nudes in this range will complement Indian skin tones very well. (c) If you are looking out for affordable lipsticks that doesn’t break your bank.

Pros-

  • Opaque coverage in two swipes
  • Texture is smooth
  • Formula is semi-matte
  • Full coverage
  • Highly pigmented
  • Longetivity is 4-5hrs
  • Lovely smell
  • Wide range of colors – nudes, brights and bold shades
  • Complement Indian skintones
  • Affordable
  • Cruelty Free
  • Easily Available on Nykaa online & stores

Cons-

  • Packaging is not sturdy
  • No shade names on the lipstick

 Ratings- 4.5/5

Recommendation- I will recommend Nykaa Paintstix for the wide colour selection, affordability and formula factor. These lipsticks are light on the lips which is an absolute necessity during summers.

P.S – Products sent by PR but my reviews remain honest and unbiased.

This eyeshadow is a mix of shimmer, metallic and matte eyeshadow. The brown shadow in the top row end is a great transition color. All the eyeshades are superbly pigmented and I didn’t experience any fallout with them yet. This eyeshadow is perfect for fall/winter makeup and also for smokey eyes. I enjoyed playing with this palette and I see myself using a lot of this.

Sleek Vintage Romance I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette

The medium face contour kit is not a hidden gem. Its been all over the blogosphere and has been a favourite choice contour kit to many. So I don’t have to say much about it. This contour kit includes contouring powder and a highlighter and this kit is perfect for daily wear.

Sleek Face Contour Kit In Medium

This lipstick is a semi matte finish red that provides full coverage and pigmentation. The formula is very smooth and buttery but transfers easily. This lipstick include properties of Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Coconut oil to moisturise and nourish lips.

Sleek Lip Vip Lipstick In Guestlist

This twist up eye pencil in midnight can be used both on the lashline and waterline. The pigmentation is quite intense and it didn’t smudge as yet.

Sleek Twist Up Midnight Eye Pencil

I love this particular eyebrow stylist in medium. It looks so natural on the brows and best to use on-the go. The angular shape gives a perfect outline to the brows and the spooley side clears any dust and groom the eyebrows neatly.  I am so glad I got this in the kit.

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist In Medium

This solace highlighting palette is life! I think this is the best palette in the kit. I can easily compare it to any high end highlighter to this palette and this will turn out to be a winner. I have benefit whatsup highlighter and this works better than the former. One shade on top row is creamy while the other three is in powder form. I also love the classy golden case packaging, it looks so classy and the mirror in it is bigh enough to do your makeup anywhere. Absolute love material.

Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette

This Sleek Matte me liquid lipstick in “Shabby Chic” is a pretty petal rosy kinda shade. It will suit fair to medium skintone very well. However, darker skintones should stay away from this shade. But you can work it out by mixing with another shade and you are good to go.

Sleek Matte Me In Shabby Chic

Sleek Full Fat lash mascara is an everyday mascara. I won’t say that it is the best mascara I have used because I have used better mascaras than this. However, it does a decent job for an everyday mascara. It helps in separating the lashes clearly without any clumps. It doesn’t lengthens the lash or add much volume but it opens up the eyes. Its the only miss in the kit.

Sleek Full Fat Lash Mascara

The blush by 3 lace is a bestseller trio from the Sleek. Again I do not need to talk about it in details as there has been detailed review about it online. These blush are insanely pigmented and gives a healthy glow and color to the cheek. Out of the three two shades are matte and the mid shade is slightly shimmery but not OTT.

Sleek Blush By 3 In Lace

I used the products from the kit and I loved how it turn out on me. I didn’t get to use the red lisptick as it wouldn’t match my eyemakeup. Rest everything is from the kit apart from my base makeup.

Hope you like the Sleek Box of Tricks Makeup Haul. I am in love with this kit, it is perfect for a gift as well as for personal use. This kit is a bargain at its a price, you get to use 9 products for around 2000 INR. These are all full size products and there is no mini product included in this kit. If you want me to review any particular product from this kit, please let me know and I will be glad to do a detailed review. Overall, I would say if you still wish to buy it keep an eye on the boots sale. As of now it is out of stock but you never know when it’s restocked.

Lots of Love,

Ric <3

P.S- This is not a press review. I have purchased the product and the post written is honest & unbiased.

Fair & Lovely Powder Cream Launch Event + Product Review

Its been such a long time that my hand is even shaking to pen down my thoughts. I had no motivation lately coz of the hectic work schedule, friend’s engagement party, monsoon trip. All of this kept me busy throughout the weeks. Oh also how can I forget that I shifted to a new place last Sunday. But today I want to speak about a perfect Sunday that I spent in Bungalow 9, Bandra on 17 July. I was invited for the Fair & Lovely Powder Cream Event and I was really curious to know about the new product. I thought it would be a boring day where there would be a speech, goodies will be given and then we can leave. Guess what? It was a super engaging and fun event. We were engaged into games and activities back to back. There was team effort and active participation from all the bloggers. All girls gel around very well due to the team building activities. There were goodies for every activity, which was also a great motivation. In the meanwhile, bloggers were called one by one for product testing. We had our whole day scheduled. Time just flew away and then we had to wrap up. We clicked a lot of pictures before leaving and it felt like it was a graduation picture where all of us got in the frame and clicked a Happy Picture. Everyone had a great time and left with a happy face.

My Experience with FAL Powder Cream– I wore the product for the entire event and looked fresh and bright whole day long. I thought maybe I should try and spend a whole hectic week of my usual work-life and then decide on how it fares. So my usual Monday to Friday is at work spending 9:30am to 6:30pm. I applied the FAL powder cream at 8am and it felt like a moisturising cream, I applied it in dots on my forehead, neck, chin and cheeks. My face looked bright and fresh and the cream settled in quickly giving me a smooth, matte, bright look. There was no oiliness or stickiness whatsoever. There is no coverage or foundation in this cream. So even though it mattifies well, there was no need for a powder touch-up. I like a bit of coverage in my creams. So I ended up using my compact on this cream and was done for the day. During my lunch, I checked in mirror if I need any touch-up but my face was still matte and fresh. So I continued with work and around 5pm my friend asked to catch up after work for a friend’s house party. I thought now atleast I have to touch-up. To my surprise, the face still looked fresh and I only re-applied my kajal and lipstick. I reached home around 11pm and while washing my face I realised damn my face doesn’t look like I work all day. I usually use bbcream on an average day and I know how dull my face looks at the end of the day. I was super impressed and happy with the product and wore it to work daily. On days when I apply make up, I love using this as a face primer and trust me it works like magic as a face brightener + primer. There is no sunscreen protection in the cream, I wish they would add some SPF to the product; it would have been All-in-one. Overall, I Enjoyed the FAIR & LOVELY Powder cream. It is super affordable, it makes your face look bright and matte for the whole day, on my combination skin there was no traces of oiliness found. I wouldn’t say this cream would make you fair and white, no cream can do that. But it definitely makes you Bright. This would be a perfect product for a college goer to a working woman. After all who wants a heavy foundation feel every day?

Rating – 4.5/5

Recommendation – I am so glad that it is not like those typical product which claims to make you fair. It gives you a fair, bright and matte look for 14hrs. It would be perfect for college girls as well as working women. As the product is very pocket friendly, this is very well-suited for its audience. The product easily would last a month even if used daily. I will highly recommend this product if you are bored of the regular bb/cc creams. This product will be a value addition as it’s actually a unique product.
