Lakme absolute perfect radiance (skin lightening day creme)

Product review –

Price- 360 INR (5.15usd)

Quantity -50gm

Packaging

it comes in nice silvery looking container that looks pretty on the makeup vanity looks quite high end.

It has a screw on cap.

Ingredients

Not mentioned on the bottle but might be written on the cardboard box it comes with. I bought the day creme and night creme in a set and a face massager came along free with this.

My experience

The first thing that i noticed when i started using this product is that it smells just like boroplus or fair and lovely.

It has spf 20++ so it does the job of sunscreen as well as moisturizer. It does not feel heavy on the skin. It is good for combination to oily skin.

Thumbs. Up –

*works nice as daycream and primer.

*a bit pricey for the amount of product.

*available easier online than offline.

Thumbs down –

*feels a bit whitish on skin but on massaging it in it fades.

*smell might bother some of you.

Will i purchase it again?

I don’t think so.. I would like to try some other alternatives. I don’t have much to say about this product but i do not like it much.

Rating – 6/10.

White tone face powder

Product review –

Price – 75 INR (1.07usd)

Quantity – 50gm

Packaging

Packaging is simple with a plastic oval bottle with flip on cap.

Ingredients –

My experience –

It is fine milled powder. It is one of those kind of products that shows that being fair is the only way to make a woman look beautiful i guess… Because it comes in only one shade…and it feels like you have a white case on your skin after applying it.

It smells nice… But smells fades gradually

It is good for application on other body parts apart from face or if you are into Halloween makeup then.

Its a product by vini cosmetics. I feel like this drugstore brand in particular does not do well so much but still women who lean towards making their skin look white pasty powdery likes buying this product.

I have a wheatish skin tone and i don’t like the look of this product on my skin. . I’m sure it will make a fairer skin tone more fair…

Thumbs up-

*affordable

*available online and offline.

*can be used as a talc.

Thumbs down-

*makes your face look white.

*can used on other body parts other than face.

Will i purchase it again?

I got it in a beauty bag as a gift. .. I have not purchased even this one. I felt like i should review it. Not at all worth purchasing.

Lakme peach milk moisturiser

Product review –

Price – 110 INR(1.57usd)

Quantity – 60ml

Packaging

Comes in a variety of different plastic packaging.. It comes in a cap and container type package as well as this plastic bottle with a flip cap.

My experience

Best for people with combination to oily skin.it can used as a primer. The best part is.. It dries down without feeling heavy or greasy on the skin.

The bottle (smaller ones) are travel friendly too.. but might spill on extremely hot weather.

The consistency of the cream is quite light and thin and on blending it feels moisturizing on the skin.

It smells quite nice and makes you feel fresh.Smell gradually fades in few minutes.

Consistency

Thumbs up-

*affordable

*feels nice and moisturizing on the skin

Thumbs down-

*not enough for dry skin.

My experience-

These lipsticks come in a set of six (at Amazon) containing brown ,nudes ,pink and red shade.these shades are even sold separately on ebay.

These lipstick have “Numbers” mentioned on it for different shades…instead of names.

The nude Shades in this set are “Kylie Jennerish” shades 🙂

These are incredibly smooth powdery matte lipstick…Pigmentation is really good…so good that it won’t come off even on waashing.Only makeup removers or oil can remove it…Hence kissproof i guess 😛 as the name says.

But it might feel dry for people with dry lips.

when applied over any other lipstick it makes it look matte.

these act as great lipliner for liquid lipstick…especially shade 5 and shade 9 which helps in concealing dark pigmentation on lips.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION- ULTRA AQUA BROW TINT

IMG_20160309_084327

SHADE-Medium

Price-Rs 700 (10.42 usd)

Quantity-10grams

Packaging-the packaging is much similiar to nyx brow tint.it is packaged within a squeezy plastic tube, with a nozzle.The packaging is quite classy…but there’s no brush to go along with this product.

INGREDIENTS-

IMG_20160309_084242

The Application.

The first thing I’d say is that you need the smallest amount of this stuff for both eyebrows, below is about as much as I use (one dot).

Lasting Power-

With powder I often find that it fades through the day but this stuff doesn’t, it sets to a natural looking finish, it’s not crispy or waxy but it doesn’t budge, I still definitely have to remove quite a bit at night when I’m taking off my makeup which is good. I wear my makeup for around 12-14 hours a day and I never feel like I need to touch it up.

IMG_20160309_084516

IMG_20160309_084535

MY EXPERIENCE-

. Once applied to the brows, it really doesn’t budge and it is completely smudgeproof like it claims and it’s even waterproof too so it would be the perfect brow companion in the summer or on holiday as your brows would stay in place all day. I think this would be the perfect brow product if the shade range was a little more diverse, so I really hope Makeup Revolution create some cool toned fair and dark shades as three out of the four shades are warm toned.

IMG_20160309_084616

THUMBS UP-

  • Great pigmentation
  • easy to use
  • medium shade is a bit reddish ,,..not so good for indian skin tone
  • feels light
  • smudge proof
  • affordable

THUMBS DOWN-

  • no brush is given with it…so you have to buy a brush for its application
  • limited shades
  • easily available only online

MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIP LAVA

Hi guys,

As soon as i discovered that TOO FACED MELTED LIPSTICK’s have a dupe …..i knew that i had to get my hands on these- MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIP LAVA.

PRODUCT REVIEWED– MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIP LAVA

SHADE REVIEWED– Firestorm

PRICE-RS 700( 4.59usd /2.99GBP) for 12ml

IT COMES IN FOUR SHADES-

  • Unleash(peachy shade)
  • Shockwave(neon purple)
  • Forgiven(Nude)
  • Firestorm( True red)

AVAILABLE (mostly online)-

IMG_20160117_122055

PACKAGING-

It comes in pretty chic cardboard box which shows quite a close resemblance to the “too faced melted lipsticks” quite sturdy enough to store in the squeezin tube containing the lipstick.

IMG_20160117_121811

IMG_20160117_121824

IMG_20160117_122204

This is how the red plastic squeeze-in tube with a black cap looks like this.The tube represents the colour of the lipstick,which is quite helpful in selecting the shade ……thought the name of the lipstick “FIRESTORM” is not mentioned anywhere.It has a soft sponge applicator tip which i feel might be unhygienic so it cannot be shared ,if used directly on lips by one person.

IMG_20160117_122305

WHAT THE PRODUCT CLAIMS-

The Lip Lavas are described as an Intense lipstick formula, melted to create our most impactful gloss. Smooth and comfortable wear, with long lasting formula with Vitamin E

DUPE of too faced melted –

Too Faced MELTED LIPSTICK came out with a lot more shades, but, the Lip Lava’s have pretty much exact color dupes for

Melted Nude = Forgiven,

Melted Ruby = Firestorm,

Melted Coral = Unleash,

Melted Violet = Shockwave and

Melted Peony = Tremor.

REVIEW-

The collection contains five shades in gorgeous bright and vibrant colours.

When the Lip Lavas are first applied to the lips, the finish is very glossy although over time the glossiness does reduce slightly but it stays relatively glossy whereas the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks dry down to a matte finish which is probably the only difference between the two products.

I am quite happy to see the pigmentation, these Lip Lava’s are very pigmented, just like as i had expected and heard about it.

FIRESTORM being a “BLUE-TONED RED” looks gorgeous on my skin colour(wheatish skin).i love wearing it all the time …even a small amount of the lipstick looks like a stain which a prefer. 🙂
Smell– The Lip Lava lipsticks don’t have a scent which is a plus point 🙂
Texture– it’s smooth and creamy but feels stick at first on application.
STAYING POWER-It stays all day long unless you remove it.i have noticed that even after removing it off with a baby wipe it tends to remain as stain on lips which looks lovely on its own.
TRANFER-The only downside of this product is that it tranfers a lot….like hell. But even after transferring, it remains on your lips forever.:)

Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick

Hi everyone!

Lakme enrich satin lipstick range is one of the range from LAKME that is still available in the market easily…..Earlier it had a “maroon packaging” and later they changed the packaging to a transparent one with the shades remaining almost the same in both.i’ll be reviewing the one with “maroon packaging”

Product reviewed- Lakme enrich satin lipstick

Shade Reviewed-

  • No.133(light brown peachy nude shade)
  • No.154 PINK SORBET(berry autumy shade)

Price-Rs225(3.31 usd) each for 4.3 gms

What the product claims :

  • Rich satin color
  • amazing satin texture

PACKAGING-The lipstick comes in the regular Lakme enrich range maroon packaging. The packaging is OK- not very attractive but sturdy enough.it’s almost bullet shaped .

IMG_20160116_084857

IMG_20160116_084934

Texture -the lipstick are smooth but not buttery.It glides on easily and gives of an opaque colour in one swipe.

Ingredients

No ingredients list anywhere on the packaging

IMG_20160116_084816

REVIEW-

The texture of the lipsticks is quite creamy and soft I would say. Some shades do have shimmers in it while the others don’t. It glides on easily on the lips and is pretty moisturising I would say. Haven’t noticed any accentuation of the fine lines.

The shade No.133 was a slighly less opaque and is nude(not a perfect one though)for my wheatish skin color as compared to no.154 which looked really gorgeous for my skin type.

The shade No.133 looks a straight up nude for my skin type …it has slight silver shine to it which in]s evident only on closeup.while the other shade ie- no.154 looks quite opaque on one swipe.

The only downside of these lipstick can be that they are not matte and neither totally glossy.They often tend to melt away when not kept in a cold place(i store them in refrigerator)

STAYING POWER-It stayed on me for a good 3 -4 hours.

TRANSFER-It transfers very little. The shade no.154 stains lips and the stains remains there for a long time and needs to be wiped off with an oil base make up remover.This is not the same for the nude shade ie- no.133

YOU CAN BUY IT FROM-

  • easy available online and offline
  • sturdy packaging
  • satiny and smooth texture
  • does not dries out the lips
  • good pigmentation
  • darker shades tend to stay as lip stain even after fading away.

  • Shades have number instead of names

RATING-4/5

Overall I feel these are some very affordable and lovely lipsticks.
