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.

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.

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches & FOTD

Hello Gorgeous,

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette Review

 

Happy “Smoky Eyes Week’ to everyone. There is big news for all you, UD Lovers! Urban Decay is selling off the Smoky palette for half the price i.e $27.00 as they are going to discontinue this palette soon. I don’t even know why have they suddenly decided to discontinue it considering the fact that its one heck of a Bestseller! It’s been on every girl’s wishlist since like school. I bought this palette during the December-January sale on Sephora and luckily I got it for $27.00 too. I thought why not review this amazing palette before you think of purchasing it. After all, it’s one of my most cherished palettes and getting this baby home was almost like a dream come true. Mind you, it’s an achievement for any beauty enthusiast to have an Urban Decay palette, it’s more like having an iPhone in the world full of Androids 😛 (No offence to Android Lovers)

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette Review

Product Description-

The key to nailing the most sought-after and elusive eye look ever? Naked Smoky—loaded with ALL the essentials you need for the perfect neutral smoky eye. A true range of shades. The perfect brushes. And detailed tutorials.

We packed this palette with a dozen sultry, smoky neutrals, including nine never-before-seen shades and three exclusives from past palettes. Experiment with warm bronzes, dimensional grays, rich browns, gorgeous taupes and deep black. From mattes and satins to shades with sparkle, Naked Smoky has it all. Each shade in Naked Smoky features our Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

Ever buy a beauty product and then realize you have no idea how to use it? Naked Smoky makes sultry, come-hither eyes totally doable. The detailed lookbook breaks down four amazing ways to get Naked and smoky, and our exclusive double-ended brush (with a Tapered Crease Brush on one end and a Smoky Smudger Brush on the other) makes application easy.

The case and brush feature a cool floating smoke effect, with “Naked Smoky” in gunmetal foil. To add to the mysterious vibe, we set the shadow pans in a smoky transparent base. The magnetic closure on the case prevents shadow mishaps in your bag, and the full-size mirror makes it easy to get Naked whenever the urge strikes.

What you see is what you get: High (pale pink-nude shimmer w/ micro-sparkle), Dirtysweet (medium bronze), Radar (metallic taupe w/iridescent micro-sparkle), Armor (metallic silver-taupe w/tonal sparkle), Slanted (light metallic gray), Dagger (medium charcoal w/micro-shimmer), Black Market (jet-black satin), Smolder (deep plum-taupe), Password (cool taupe matte), Whiskey (rich brown matte), Combust (soft pink-taupe) and Thirteen (light beige satin).

Fill Weight: Eyeshadows: 12 x 1.3 g POIDS NET/NET WT. 12 x 0.05 oz

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette Review

Price- $54.00 (Now available for $27.00 only)

Packaging- The palette comes in a very chic, sexy and sturdy packaging. It looks like smoke engraved on the case; this palette’s packaging is quite unique unlike the other two versions of Naked palettes which looked pretty simple. The palette is slightly heavier but sturdier than other palettes and includes a big mirror and a dual ended brush. The dual ended brush is of very good quality and can be used single handedly to create smokey looks. Since the palette is sturdy you can count in for being travel friendly.

My Experience with Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette-

I always wanted a Smoky Eyeshadow palette and what could be better than having an original Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow palette. I don’t have any other Urban Decay Eyeshadow palette other than the Naked Smoky palette but I am truly impressed with the super high pigmentation and smooth texture of the eyeshadows in this palette. The eyeshadow palette comes with a big mirror and a dual ended brush. The dual ended brush acts as a blending brush and as a smudge brush. Now even if you run out of your makeup brushes during travelling, this single brush will be your Saviour. The eyeshades are mix of matte, satins and shimmery which includes shades from beige-brown to greyish-blacks. You wouldn’t need any shades outside the palette to create your smokey eyes. I didn’t use any primer while creating the look yet it showed so well on my eyelids. I am sure an eyebase or primer will increase the intensity of these eyeshadows. Also, I noticed there were no fall outs from this eyeshadows. I have Coastal scents eyeshadows and I have BH cosmetics eyeshaow palette they all have lovely colors but do have fall outs. I never faced that issue with the Naked Smoky palette. The eyemakeup doesn’t wear out and stay for around 8-9hrs easily. I think this is the reason why Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palettes are so expensive. If you prefer having high end palettes that has great pigmentation and shades for your smoky eye tutorials, you will love Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette.  The only Con is that it’s not easily available and of course they are pricey. However, it is best to invest on it now since it’s on sale. I created a simple smokey look on Ganesh Chaturthi using this palette and loved how it looked on me. What do you think?

Pros-

  • Very good pigmentation

  • Good mix of matte, satins and shimmers
  • No fall out
  • Classy packaging
  • Great staying power
  • All possible smokey shades
  • Comes with a mirror and dual ended brush
  • Travel friendly
  • Quite sturdy
  • Currently available at just $27.00 / Half the price
  • Great for smokey eyemakeup lovers

Cons-

  • Pricey
  • Availability

Rating- 4.9/5

Recommendation- This palette is for the one who has a special place for smokey eyes in their hearts. The 12 shades can spoil you with options. You can go from soft brown smokey to pitch black smokey through this palette.

 

Maybelline New York Falsies Push Up Drama Waterproof Mascara Review

Hello Sunshine,

Maybelline New York Falsies Push Up Drama Waterproof Mascara Review

If you really want to know what is Monsoon? You should come to Mumbai (i.e if you are not in Mumbai). It is raining cats and dogs here from past 3 days and there is finally some sunlight today. The sun is out and I felt inspired to write this post on Maybelline New York Falsies Push Up Drama Waterproof Mascara. Generally, I don’t buy waterproof version of a mascara. But its a must have in Mumbai during Monsoon and summers…YES! Summers too! One day I went for an event and I was dreaded to see my mascara in the lift, it was smudged all over my eyes due to sweating. So I thought of investing in a good waterproof mascara to avoid further wardrobe malfunction. 😛 Honestly, I was ready to buy an expensive one too. In my search, I thought of giving this mascara a try and here I am with the complete review.

My Experience with Maybelline New York Falsies Push Up Drama Waterproof Mascara Review-

This is one of most blackest black mascara in budget mascara category. The formula is wet yet thick and it dries pretty quickly. You can easily add 2-3 coats of mascara without any clumps. The waterproof version is way too good and I wore the mascara in hot & humid climate and in rains. The mascara didn’t smudge or budge at all. I usually wear colored contact lenses and it didn’t irritate my eyes. I can say its safe to say to use even for people who wear contact lenses. I always curl my lashes and then apply a mascara unless I am in a hurry. This mascara curls the lashes very well and keep them uplifted for a longer period of time. Some mascara lengthens while some add volume, this mascara does both; adds volume for fuller looking lashes and lengthens them. I love how affordable yet effective this mascara turned out to be. Maybelline Push up Drama Waterproof Mascara lasts for a really long time and stays until removed. One tube lasts for around 3 months based on the usage. The only con I see that its a pain to remove this mascara you need to have a very good makeup remover to get rid of it. Also, I would like to warn you that never sleep with this mascara it may irritate your eyes. Anyway, its not good to sleep with your makeup on. Overall, I love this mascara its affordable, waterproof and it works very well. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is my other favourite. I have to accept that Maybelline makes some really good mascaras in the budget range.

Maybelline New York Falsies Push Up Drama Waterproof Mascara Review

Pros-

  • Waterproof
  • Smudge proof
  • Very black
  • Uplifts and curls lashes
  • Lengthens them effectively
  • Adds volume to the lashes
  • Chic packaging

Colorbar Skin Stay the Day Finishing Mist Review

Hello ladies,

Colorbar Skin Stay the Day Finishing Mist Review

We all love doing makeup but don’t you just hate it when your makeup starts melting during summers and look patchy during winters? This problem gave birth to Setting Spray in my vanity. Its only been few months that I purchased Colorbar Skin Stay the Day Finishing Mist and I have never used any other setting spray in past. I heard great things about MAC Fix + spray but didn’t get it because I wanted to see how fixing spray actually can fix your makeup. Honestly, I really didn’t want to buy something so expensive before trying an alternative. You know mind of a beauty blogger is just like a ‘baniya’ 😛 I read about this being a dupe of MAC Fix + spray, I don’t have one so I don’t want to comment on that. I don’t think I will ever know MAC Fix + spray unless its gifted to me because I am super happy with Colorbar Skin Stay the Day Finishing Mist. Read on to know why…

Colorbar Skin Stay the Day Finishing Mist Review

  • This product does two jobs
  • A toner that keeps your skin hydrated, refreshed and calm
  • And a hydrating mist that sets and refreshes your favorite makeup to make it last longer
  • Energized with ‘Witch Hazel Water’ this product has anti-bacterial properties

Colorbar Skin Stay the Day Finishing Mist Review
Colorbar Skin Stay the Day Finishing Mist Review, Swatches

My Experience with Colorbar Skin Stay the Day Finishing Mist-

To start with the packaging, it comes in a spray bottle which is quite transparent that helps you to understand how much of the product is left in the bottle. The product has a slight fragrance but nothing that will irritate a sensitive nose. I am combination skin which gets dry easily, infact my mouth area is very drying so much so that my skin peels at times. I usually apply my makeup without moisturiser; yes I am weird that way…. that’s because I use sunscreen that works like a moisturiser. After applying full makeup, I sprayed this mist on my face and I was happy to see that my makeup looked all put together, dewy and natural. Earlier, my face used to look flat matte and even though it didn’t look patchy. It did look like I am wearing a mask of makeup and that can be a turn off. There was a lovely glow on my face and my highlighter popped out like “champagne” (No, I didn’t use Becca’s champagne pop). At times, when I don’t want a heavy coverage, I simply apply the sunscreen and compact powder and then use the mist. It looks absolutely natural for everyday wear. I have also used it as a toner and primer works perfectly fine on those grounds too. You can also spray the hydrating mist on your makeup brush for flawless blending and smooth finish. The makeup stays for good 8-10 hrs on my face with the fixing spray. I need to use baby wipes to get rid of all the makeup on the face. This fixing spray will suit all skin types including the oily skin girls  but make sure you don’t go overboard with the spray or you will end up looking like a disco ball. Sensitive skin women can use this hydrating mist as it doesn’t irritate or give any breakouts. People generally keep asking me about the glow on my face, it’s basically the Colorbar Stay the Day Finishing Mist working on me. Who needs a MAC when you have something that works just the same at half the price.

Colorbar Skin Stay the Day Finishing Mist Review

Pros-

  • Boon for dry skin
  • Mild fragrance
  • Sets makeup like a boss

Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Highlighter Peach Kiss Review, Swatches & FOTD

Hello girls,

Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Highlighter Peach Kiss Review, Swatches & FOTD

There are two things about me that you should know or may already know. I love liquid lipsticks & highlighters more than any other makeup. I am a hoarder when it comes to highlighters, go check out my Instagram and you will know what I am talking about. I have three Makeup Revolution highlighters but I want to bring out the best to you. Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Highlighter Peach Kiss is my favourite peach highlighter. I really never planned to purchase it but Bidisha (from Mermaid Bidisha on Youtube) told me that she has it and it’s a must-have. How could I not believe my makeup buddy? She has always suggest me the right products. Well, the time I purchased this, it was only Hokmakeup who was selling this product. So I immediately bought this highlighter without second thoughts. Now you have it on Nykaa too.

Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Highlighter Peach Kiss Review

My Experience with Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Peach Kiss Highlighter-

Firstly, I want to adore the packaging of this highlighter. This highlighter is so huge and pretty. The rose gold packaging is absolutely chic and it comes with a huge mirror. The mirror is damn big and you can use it easily to do your whole face. I couldn’t detect any strong fragrance but a very mild one that vanishes. I have swatched the highlighter and boyyy it was insanely pigmented. The formula of this highlighter is extremely smooth and buttery. When I applied it to my cheeks, Omg.. I looked like a “glowworm”. It looked so gorgeous on application that I just couldn’t get my eyes of it. The best part was that it didn’t look chunky it was just like one of those natural glow. I prefer natural highlighters any given time. You can also try applying it wet to increase the intensity. I used a fixing spray and end up looking like a “bulb” with the highlight. No jokes, the highlight is simply blinding. Since the formula is blendable and natural looking, it’s perfect for both daily and occasionally. You can also use it all over your neck and body for party wear. It looked amazing on my skintones which is medium and it looks equally amazing on darker skintones. Hence, I am sure it is a versatile product. Also, the quantity of the product is way more for the value.

Meilin Waterproof No Transfer Lipsticks Review, Swatches & FOTD

Hello Gorgeous,

Meilin Waterproof No Transfer Lipstick
Meilin Waterproof No Transfer Lipstick

Today’s post is about my recent favourite matte lipsticks from a brand called “Meilin”. Many of you may not be familiar with this brand. I know Meilin as a brand from say 7-8 years now. My first concealer was from Meilin and I still did not manage to finish it inspite of using it daily. Well, now that it’s already expired, I can’t even think of using it again and I have several other concealers to finish. Coming back to Meilin Waterproof No Transfer lipsticks, I heard nice things about this lipstick from few people. I decided that I’ll go to Beautiful store in Andheri and check out this brand. Since then it was always on my wishlist. One day I was near Beautiful store so I quickly bought 2 shades and left the store. Also, the SA told me that most of the shades were out of stock. So I knew I would have to come again to the store. Fast forward to the lipsticks, I am so happy that I picked it up so much so that I asked my sister to get me more two shades from this brand. In total, I have 4 Meilin No transfer lipsticks, the shades are 897 Punch, N818 Rouge, 812 Brown Sugar and N815 Fuscous.

Product Description-

Meilin Non Transfer Lipstick – 4g * Meilin Blue Star Original waterproof Lipstick * After Application Leave 2 Minutes before Touching.

Price- The price varies from Rs.210 to Rs. 350 depending on the place of purchase. I got mine for Rs.210 from Beautiful store, Lokhandwala. Also available on Amazon & Flipkart.

Packaging- It comes in a sleek tube packaging which is cute and sturdy. The navy blue and gold packaging looks pretty similar to Faces pro matte lip crayons. The shade name and number is labelled below the lipstick. The gold print on the lipstick cover tend to fade off after a while.

Punch 897- This is a neonish kinda pink which is not so neon on the lips. It looks extremely pretty on the lips on application. This shade will look great on fair to medium skintone.

Rouge N818- This is a mauvish browns shade which looks absolutely beautiful. My favourite amongst all. This can be a nude for darker skintones. Will suit all skintones

Brown Sugar 812- This is a mixture of brick red and brown. Its such gorgeous color that will make your complexion glow especially if you are medium yellow skin tone. Again, this shade will suit everyone.

Fuscous N815- This is a grungy greyish brown shade for goth lovers. One of the unique shades I have seen. This shade will look great on dusky skintones.

My Experience with Meilin Waterproof No Transfer Lipstick-

Meilin lipsticks have a very mild scent which goes after few minutes of application. The fragrance is quite pleasant but if you have a sensitive nose you may not like it, it’s not a problem for me though. As soon as you apply you need to wait for 2 minutes for it settles down to matte after that it won’t budge and looks extremely matte. It has a soft matte formula which is way better than any liquid lipstick in the market. Why I love it? Its because it doesn’t dry out your lips like liquid lipsticks. If you are in a/c it may get in the fine lines of your lips but won’t crack them. On applying, the texture is smooth and buttery. It is highly pigmented and one swipe is enough but you may want to give it two swipes for full coverage. This lipstick covers the pigmentation of your lips. The staying power is just too good with eating or drinking it stays upto 7-8hrs. However, if you have oily food the lipstick fades away with the center of your lips. I think this is a common problem with all lipsticks. I want to mention that this lipstick is not completely transfer proof but I can say it is truly waterproof. I can’t get rid of the lipstick until I use an oil base makeup remover. It’s a A+ product for me as its extremely affordable. I mean if you ask me pick a MAC or buy 7 Meilin Lipsticks? I would happily pick up Meilin lipsticks for the better formula, shade, longetivity and budget friendly. This has become my go to lipsticks these days. I literally breathe with this lipstick on. One of the major con with them is the Availability, they always go out of stock. Don’t keep a favourite, you will never will able to get them all together. Not all shades are available online or even in store due to stocks running out.

Miss Claire Blooming Face/Loose Powder Review & Swatches

Hello Ladies,

I absolutely love contouring and if you love the art of contouring, you couldn’t stop it once you start doing it.. Isn’t it? Recently, I learnt this new concept of baking and I see how yellow powders play a critical role in baking. For someone who doesn’t know what is Baking? Its basically a method to brighten your under eyes and helps you set your foundation making it look flawless. There are many yellow powders in the market and I know few famous ones are BEN NYE LOOSE POWDER, MAKE UP REVOLUTION LOOSE POWDER. There are also some translucent powders or no color powders like RCMA loose powder etc. Now as you can see all these brands are imported brands and of course a bit on the pricier side. I visited the Beautiful store in Mumbai last month and it was a very casual, tiny haul where I bought 2 Meilin lipsticks and a yellow loose powder named TL4 from Miss Claire. This loose powder caught my eye and instantly reminded me of Kryolan loose powders. Also it retailed only Rs.300 so I thought why not give this a try before getting the expensive ones.

Product Description- This is an ultra-fine translucent sublimely silky powder which helps conceal flaws, minimize pore size and lays a foundation for make-up application over cream and liquid make up. It helps to set it in place. It provides a sheer, micro and matte finish for that subtly dusky look. It is used for both professional and daily make up.

Price- Rs. 300 (You can buy it online on Amazon and Habbana)

Packaging- This loose powder comes in a round jar with a mirror like cover on the top. Its easy to do your makeup with the mirror cover packaging. The jar is sturdy yet classy. The packaging is such that you can easily carry it while travelling. It comes with a good quality white puff. There is just right amount of holes in the plastic jar which gives out the right amount of powder. The color of the powder is easily seen due to translucent packaging and the shade name and number is mentioned behind the jar.

My Experience with Miss Claire Blooming Face/Loose Powder-

The powder is yellow in color and it instantly add a fresh glow on your face. This loose powder is finely milled and has no fragrance whatsoever which might be a plus for many sensitive souls. The powder goes easy on the skin and doesn’t look patchy or uneven. If your face is well moisturised you can simply dab some of the powder on your face to get some coverage. I am quite surprised with the glow it gives to my yellow skintone. I love using it both while highlighting and as a plain loose powder. I wasn’t expecting much from this product really. But I think I will stock up this product once it gets over but a little goes a long way. So It will take a lot of time to finish it. The face powder lasts upto 4-5hrs without any touch ups. It gives sheer to buidable coverage. Coming to Baking, the main reason why I purchased it. This worked really well in setting my makeup and didn’t budge for quite a long time. I don’t think I need to buy an expensive one, now that I own this. If you are looking out for a budget friendly loose powder, I would highly suggest you to try Miss Claire Blooming Face Powder TL4.

Pros-

  • Smooth texture.
  • Classy packaging.
  • Lasts upto 5hrs.
  • Great for highlighting, baking & as a setting powder.
  • Sheer to buildable coverage.
  • Gives Flawless finish.
  • Brightens and gives a subtle glow
  • Travel friendly
  • Good quantity
  • Very Affordable

Cons-

  • Availability

Ratings- 4.8/5

Recommendation-

This is an affordable yellow loose powder which will be perfect for baking and setting. I highly recommend you buy this loose powder. Availability is the only con about this product. If you get your hands on this, you might just find a replacement to your expensive banana loose powder. I am using this every single day and love the subtle glow that comes with it.
