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.

Inatur Herbals Anti Ageing Night Cream, Lip Balm and Honey Sheet Mask Review.

Hello Ladies,

Inatur Herbals Anti Ageing Night Cream, Lip Balm and Honey Sheet Mask Review

Here is a new skincare brand on my blog. I know I have been doing a lot of makeup reviews. So I shifted my focus towards skincare lately. With the changing weather, my skin has become very dry and I am buying less makeup and more skincare. I was glad to receive these skincare goodies from Inatur Herbals. What I really love about Inatur was that the brand carefully examined my skin type and sent me products accordingly. Inatur Herbals are ayurvedic and aromatherapy products which is again a big plus for me. The brand promises their product to be 100% safe and natural to use.  So let’s know my side of the story.

1. Inatur Herbals Anti Ageing Night Cream-

Anti-Ageing Therapy is an innovative therapy from the house of Inatur that works day and night to combat all signs of ageing and make your skin look younger. It contains 2 creams- one being the anti-ageing night cream that is especially developed for mature, tired and aged skin. Regular application of this products helps to improve skin tone by reducing discoloration and brown spots. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and brings firmness, hydration and nourishment to the skin.

Inatur Herbals Anti Ageing Night Cream Review

Price- Rs. 410 for 50gms

My Experience with Inatur Herbals Anti Ageing Night Cream-

I have never used an anti ageing product earlier and this is my first anti ageing night cream. My skin is turning very dry in winters otherwise I don’t really have mature skin or any fine lines. Inspite of it my skin looks very firm, radiant and healthy after the use of this night cream. The formula is mattifying and absorbs easily. Unlike many of the night creams in the market which turns oily. I am very happy that the product is non comedogenic and didn’t break me out. It really suits my skin and helped in reducing dark spots. The fragrance of all Inatur products seems to be dipped in ‘Attar’ and smell oh so divine. I can buy the product only for the fragrance. There was no fairness whatsoever but it never claimed to make it fair. It helped in removing my tan and made it even toned. I can’t comment on the fine lines bit as I have none of that. Maybe someone with a mature skin can share their experience. Overall, I am pretty satisfied with this product as a night cream. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try an effective anti-ageing product. This one definitely deserves thumbs up.

Rating- 4.7/5

2. Inatur Herbals Honey Sheet Masks-

Sheet masks are face-shaped sheet fabrics soaked in active packed solution called serum.

Sheet mask is made of plant derived natural fiber and is to be used once only. It is individually packaged, making them fast, convenient, and easy to use.

Sheet mask is a medium where by the actives can get absorbed into the skin without clogging pores. These actives then penetrate through the epidermis of skin whereby bringing desired benefits . Honey Oat sheet mask reduces dryness, rashes, skin peeling and flakiness. It has anti-inflammatory properties and gives instant relief from sunburn.

It is enriched with Honey extracts, Oat powder and Glycerin that restores the skin’s barrier system and can be used by sensitive skin also. 100% Natural, Chemical-Free, Non-Comedogenic

Inatur Herbals Honey Sheet Mask

Price- Rs.100 for 38gms

My Experience with the Honey Sheet Masks-

The honey sheet mask does exactly what it claims to be. It smells amazing and quickly after 20mins of removing the mask I experienced clean, glowing and beautiful skin. This sheet masks is great for normal to dry skin. My face was feeling too dry and stretchy during winters and this came to my rescue. There was so much of serum left in the pack even after putting that sheet masks. I had to literally pour it on my face. I am really satisfied with this sheet masks and will try another variant soon from the brand. This masks is meant for one time use. You can also carry it while travelling for a quick self pampering.

Rating- 4.8/5 

3. Inatur Herbals Argan Lip balm-

Get naturally soft and plump lips with deep moisturizing properties of Argan oil, Candelilla wax, Shea butter, Cocoa butter, Almond oil, Rose oil, Geranium oil and Patchouly oil contained in the INATUR Argan lip balm.

Free from parabens and silicones, it is 100% safe to use.

Inatur Herbals Argan Lipbalm

Price- Rs.220 for 10gms

My Experience with the Argan Lip balm-

I apply this lipbalm every night and wake up with happy, soft lips. It keeps my lips well hydrated and nourished. They are moisturised for a longer period of time. So there is no need of reapplication in every few hours. My lips look healthy and plump after the regular use. I completely enjoy the fragrance of this lipbalm. It comes with a spatula so that its easy to remove the product out of the tub. Usually, I prefer lipbalms in the twist form so applying lipbalm through a spatula sounds like a tedious job to do. Although I love this lip balm, I think it’s a bit pricier. Overall, if you love argan oil products, do give this lipbalm a try. These are completely natural and free from parabens and silicones.

Rating- 4.5/5

PS- Product sent by brand for consideration, reviews remain honest.

 

 

 

 

Europe girl Paris cosmetics Superslick Liquid Eyeliners Review & Swatches

Hello Gorgeous,

Europe girl Paris cosmetics Superslick Liquid Eyeliners Review & Swatches

I am back with another brand new company. Recently, I received a box full of products from this brand called “Europegirl Cosmetics”. This brand is actually based in India but manufactures the products from China, UK and other foreign countries. I got 4 eyeliners, illuminators and eye shadow pigments in the package. I am going to review one by one for you. So today’s topic of discussion would be the liquid eyeliners from Europe girl. Since this is the “shaadi” season, many of you like to wear glitter or shimmer eyeliners. Especially,the ones who are weak in makeup and like to glam up a bit occasionally. Here is a good news for you, Europe girl paris do have a gold glitter eyeliner and a silver eyeliner to serve the purpose. Now lets find out if its worth a buy?

Product Description- None

Europe girl Paris cosmetics Superslick Liquid Eyeliners Review & Swatches

Ingredients- Water, Propylene Glycol, PVP, Cera Alba, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Ceteraryl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate/PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Alocohol, Pehenoxye thanol Ethylhexylglycerin, caprylyl clycol, Ethrlhexylglycerin. Cruely Free

Price- Rs. 300 for 5ml. You can buy it from Amazon or from their Instagram page @europegirl.cosmetics.

Europegirl Paris Liquid Eyeliner Swatches

Packaging- They have done a good job with the packaging. Very similar to Mac cosmetics, the tube is transparent so that you can see through the color. Also the wand is of good quality which makes it easier to create your eyeliner on fleek. However, there is no product description. I feel product description gives an identity to the brand and it’s an absolute must to have one.

Shades-

Matte Black Eyeliner 01 – This is one of the blackest black eyeliner that I’ve used till date. It dries up really fast and doesn’t smudge once its all dried up. Creating wing eyeliner is so easy peasy with this eyeliner.

Glitter 02- This is lovely gold glitter eyeliner. It is perfect for the festive season and very easy to apply. It doesn’t create any mess once it is dried. However, it takes a bit longer than the black eyeliner to settle. Neverthless, it is one of the best affordable gold glitter eyeliner in the market.

Silver 06- This is pure silver lining on your eyes. Not many brands have silver eyeliner. I am really impressed that this brand does have silver eyeliner.

 Aqua Blue 05- This shade is more like a turquoise blue with a satiny finish. It looks extremely pretty on the eyes and can be easily layered twice.

Swatches of Europegirl liquid eyeliner Aqua Blue and Silver

 There are more shades in this range now. Do check out their Instagram handle @europegirl.cosmetics for the new launches.

My Experience with Europe girl Paris Slick Liquid Eyeliners-

Eyeliner is a must in every girl’s vanity. It is like a basic necessity for us girls and I have so many of you asking me the same question time and again. “Suggest me a good black eyeliner?”. So this matte black eyeliner is your answer. It is affordable yet perfect jet black, matte eyeliner. It is very easy to work with these eyeliners as the wand is very handy. Creating wing eyeliner is a cakewalk. And its just not the case with the black but also with the rest of the shades. Both the silver and glitter eyeliners are good quality and very well pigmented. The glitter doesn’t create a mess on your face. These are waterproof and smudge proof, so it doesn’t budge once it is dried. You need an oil based makeup remover to get rid of it.  Also I don’t think you can use it on your waterline, it is only made for the lids. Overall, I am truly happy with the eyeliners and give it a big thumb up. There is nothing to complain about it except I feel they should be easily available in the market. They are planning to open a retail store very soon in April. Till then they are available on Amazon and Instagram.

Europegirl Liquid Eyeliner in Glitter & Matte Black

Pros-

  • Blackest black eyeliner
  • Matte finish
  • Very good quality
  • Waterproof and smudge proof
  • Awesomely pigmented
  • Has a variety of shades
  • Affordable
  • Cruelty free
  • Good packaging

Cons-

  • No product Description
  • Should be easily available

Ratings- 4.7/5

Recommendation- I highly recommend this to you if you are looking out for good quality, affordable eyeliners. The glitter eyeliner is a must have for the festive season.

PR- Product sent by the brand for consideration but the review remainds honest and unbiased.

Olivia Cosmetics products First Impressions and Review.

Hello Beautiful,

It’s my first post in this brand New year. First of all, I want to wish everyone a very Happy New year. May the New Year bring you the plot twist that you have been waiting for. So much have changed over the years including my skincare, haircare and makeup routine. I no longer stick to a single product and always keep on experimenting with new products. Well, that’s a life of a beauty blogger. Recently, I was sent some products from Olivia Cosmetics. I remember when I was in college my first foundation stick came from the house of Olivia. For all those who are not familiar with the brand, it’s an affordable Indian herbal beauty brand that has some amazing skincare and makeup range at pocket friendly price. I received 4 products out of which two are my cult favourites and old best friend and the rest of the two are new found love. So let’s find out what I feel about the products.

1. Olivia Golden Glow Facewash for Radiant Skin-

This facewash is great for someone who is looking forward for a radiant glowing skin during festive season.  It is new from their collection and it has properties of Gold, Chandan and Turmeric which provides deep cleansing and clears skin pores.  This facewash is meant for all skintype and lathers really well. It gives a slight tingling sensation while massaging. There is nothing that I don’t like about this product.   It is actually very effective in removing dullness and making it soft smooth and healthy.

Price- Rs. 60 for 60ml.

2. Olivia Aloe vera Cleansing milk-

This cleansing milk has been there in the market for a long time. This was my go to product for face cleansing.  It not only removes all traces of face makeup but also make your skin glowy and healthy after the wash.  I will not recommend you to remove your eyemakeup using this as it may irritate your eyes. You may want to use an oil based makeup remover for eyemakeup. However, it’s best for removing dirt and other impurities from your skin. I absolutely love the fragrance of this product. There is so much quantity for the price. One bottle will easily last 1 month.  This is an absolute must have for deep cleansing.

Price- Rs. 60 for 100ml.

3. Olivia Powder Compact Natural Beige 02-

Olivia cosmetics make some of the best base makeup products. Trust me with this, I grew using Olivia products. Those were the days when we were completely dependent on pocket money to survive our days. My love for makeup started in my early days of college; I was hooked on the panstick and powder compact for regular use. I wonder why I stopped using this powder compact.  It gives the right amount of coverage inspite of being just a pressed powder. You can simply apply a moisturiser and dab this pressed powder if you are looking for light to medium coverage. It didn’t ever break me out.  This compact powder gives matte coverage which is such a plus for oily skin beauties.  I can easily compare it with Loreal Magique pressed powder which is my HG powder compact.  Dry skin beauties may want to moisturise your skin very well before using this compact powder.

Price-  Rs. 100 for 15gms

4. Olivia Instant Waterproof Makeup Stick with SPF 12-

This makeup stick is a boon for someone who is looking for a full coverage foundation. If you ask me KRYOLAN OR OLIVIA Makeup stick? I will gladly choose Olivia. Its because this makeup stick doesn’t feel heavy on application and made up like Kryolan pan stick. With Kryolan you can actually see that you have used a heavy coverage foundation but this looks extremely natural.  It has inbuilt moisturisers which makes your skin look healthy. Since it has medium to heavy coverage it perfectly conceals under eye circles and imperfections of your skin. It is truly waterproof and sweatproof. This was my cult favourite during my college days. If you are looking for a budget friendly full coverage foundation cum concealer, this should be your best bet. This didn’t break me out and it also provides UV protection. However, I suggest doing a patch test as one of my friend claimed that it did break her out.  It differs as per your skintype.

Price- Rs. 120 for 15gms.

Overall, I absolutely loved all the four products, you need to try it to know how good these products are even though its pocket friendly. The products are easily available on stores and online. Have you tried any of the Olivia products? What’s your take on them?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oval Brushes by Wiseshe Detailed Review & Photos

Hello Ladies,

No matter how expensive is your foundation; it will be a perfect marriage with your skin only by using the right tool. Recently, I was sent a cute box by my blogger friend Anamika, I am sure most of you already know her but I would still like to introduce her. She is someone who I started my blogging career with; I wrote my first article on her blog back in 2012. Since then there was no looking back and I have been addicted to her blog http://www.wiseshe.com. I completely trust her reviews and go by her advice. I was very excited to try these Oval brushes created by her under her blog name. These are yet to be launched in the market. She sent 2 of these brushes so that I can give my honest feedback before she launches them. After trying the brushes for around 2 weeks, I am finally ready to share my views about the Oval brushes by wiseshe.

Product Description- These are just named as Oval brushes by Wiseshe. The details will be shared once they are launched offline and online.

Price-  Yet to be disclosed. You can contact her at anamika@wiseshe.com.

Packaging- I have received these brushes in a giftbox but mostly they will be packed differently after the launch. The oval brushes are made of synthetic hair but trust me it didn’t feel like one as the bristles were super soft. The handle is made of plastic which doesn’t look too sturdy to me. Also, there is no branding on the brushes yet. I firmly feel that the brushes need branding so that it’s easily differentiated with other commoners in the market.

My Experience with Oval brushes by Wiseshe-

I have never used an oval brush before and this is absolutely my first. I mostly apply my foundation with my fingers inspite of having several brushes from Real techniques and coastal scents. I hate the idea of putting so much of effort of blending with a brush. For the first time, I applied my foundation with these oval brushes and it worked like a dream on my skin. I didn’t have to put too much pressure on the brushes to blend my foundation. It was completely hassle free and easy to work with. The foundation blended well and there was no streakiness or uneveness. I have tried using this with liquid foundation, cream foundation and bb cream. It worked perfectly well with all type of foundation and concealers and doesn’t drink up the product. I have two brushes one looks like a multi-purpose brush that can be used as a foundation/powder/sculpt brush and the small one is a concealer brush. The multi-purpose brush is a medium sized brush due to which it easily covers the corners of the skin. It can also be used a contour brush. I did wash them twice till now and there is no fallout or smell that I have experienced. These oval brushes are very soft and easy to work with and I am impressed with the quality. I am super happy with the performance of this oval brushes and now can’t wait to check the price point and availability. Also, I would love to see the branding done on this brushes so that it stands out from the crowd.

Pros-

  • Super Soft bristles
  • No odour
  • No fallout
  • No streaky or patchiness
  • Multipurpose brush
  • Blends like a dream
  • Works with liquid/cream/bbcream & powder based foundation.
  • Not harsh on the skin
  • Saves time
  • Doesn’t soak in the product.
  • Goes in the corner of the face

Cons-

  • Need branding on the packaging.

Rating- 4.8/5

Recommendation- These oval brushes are great for makeup application. Make sure you grab it once they are launch, if you would like your makeup to look flawless and hassle free.

Featuring the Exquisite jewellery collection from Caratlane

Caratlane

When I was a young girl, my mom used to take me and my sister for Dhanteras shopping. I used to completely dread the idea of going to the jewellery shop and buying those antic pieces in the name of gold jewellery. I had accepted the fact that I don’t like gold jewellery anymore. The old school indian jewellery designs spoilt it for me. They lack the youthfulness, charm and elegance in their collection and there is nothing new to look forward to. Recently, I got engaged and my fiancée gave me a beautiful diamond ring from the house of Caratlane. The staff at the Caratlane, Infinity Mall Malad has become like a family. They helped us to get the best discount on my ring and arranged my ring size in no time. I couldn’t stop staring at the make and shine of this beautiful rock on my finger.

So I took the opportunity to visit the Caratlane store at Infinity Mall, Malad again and introduce you to their latest collection.

Jaipur is the latest collection inspired by royalty of Jaipur and designed for everybody. The collection reminds you of the rich, glorious palaces of Jaipur. I am wearing this beautiful royal pink ring known as the Rambagh Dome ring and the Rambagh Pond Drop Earrings.

Next is my absolute favourite, this collection is known as Butterfly- The Spirit of You. This collection is for the free spirited woman who once was an amateur and turned her dreams into reality. It celebrates the woman who transformed into her authentic self. It is a true example of caterpillar turning into a butterfly.

Butterfly- The Spirit of You : Caratlane

Wore the Flare blue Butterfly ring from this range and Flitter Blue Butterfly Earcuffs. This collection will add style statement to your outfits.

Butterfly- The Spirit of You : Caratlane

Bombay Deco is a tribute to the Mumbai city. I am born and brought up in the city of dreams and cannot imagine my life elsewhere. The jewellery in this collection is designed in a manner that compliments the art deco buildings that adorn the skylines of Mumbai.  Some of these building are the famous Liberty Theatre and the Eros Theatre in South Mumbai.

Bombay Deco : Caratlane

Lotus known as the Timeless Muse has some of the best lotus design in its collection that can be perfect for daily wear. This gorgeous Lotus swing necklace paired with Lotus swing earrings got my heart set on it. I am surely picking these two during my wedding shopping.

That was the four latest collections from Caratlane. Apart from this I also liked this charming Lupine Wood Grain pendant Bodhi leaf pendant necklace from the Aaranya collection. Isn’t it aesthetic?

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Zipper Review, Swatches & FOTD

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Zipper Review, Swatches & FOTD

I took a test on Facebook which said ‘What Color of Lipstick will suit your Personality’? And the Answer was ‘Purple’. Since then I was meaning to try a purple lipstick, I couldn’t think of any other brand than Colourpop. After checking the shades I found my perfect Purple and that’s Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Zipper. I know many of you would think is she crazy to wear such a shade but well, I am quite a badass when it comes to trying daring lip shades. Whenever I travel in local trains in Mumbai, some women give me dirty stares on wearing a dark liquid lipstick and some of them quietly admire. Well, people and their nasty thoughts/ comments doesn’t bother me anymore. I wear what I like and I do not let the world change my smile…Period! Coming to this liquid lipstick, read on to my experience…..

Product Details-

Zipper Ultra Matte Lip

Whether you’re zipping them up or zipping them down you’ll be super hot in this deepened purple

ULTRA MATTE – This thin and lightweight formula glides onto the lips leaving SUPER intense colour with a bold, ultra matte finish. It’s very long wearing and completely kiss proof!

SHADE- Darks, Purples

Not tested on Animals.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Zipper Review, Swatches & FOTD

Price- $6.00 for 3.2g/0.11 oz (Purchased using shipoutfromusa.com)

Packaging- The packaging look like the standard Colourpop. The branding is done in multi-colours and the liquid lipstick comes in a transparent lip gloss form with an applicator. I have many Colourpop Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks so now I can say that after sometime the branding goes off and the tube looks old. The application wand is good and handy for precise application.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Zipper Review, Swatches & FOTD

My Experience with Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Zipper

I have always been a daredevil when it comes to trying bold/dark lipsticks. Colourpop has some crazy collection of darker shades I picked up Zipper as my perfect purple lipstick. This shade is very bold at the look of it and if you are someone who likes your comfort zone then this may be not the shade for you. There will be thousands of eyeballs staring right on your lipsand if you don’t  like that kind of attention then leave it. But if you are someone who wants to try bolder/darker shades I would say go for Zipper. Its a gorgeous dark purple which applies really well and looks opaque in one swipe. However, I felt it to be a bit drying on my lips which was a bit uncomfortable but I got used to it. I would suggest exfoliate your lips well or apply a lip primer before you apply this liquid lipstick. It stayed for a long time but started to disappear from the center of lips as and when I ate something oily. That happens with every other liquid lipstick in my opinion. The formula of Ultra matte lips is intense and highly pigmented. This shade when worn alone brightens up my complexion. My lips look much fuller and I have recieved many compliments on wearing Colourpop Ultra Matte’s. Overall, I would highly recommend this shade to people who love darker shades. As I have not seen this shade in other brand, Colourpop is the best brand to try bolders shades like purple.
