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.

Packaging– packaging looks somewhat like this.
Texture-The texture of this scrub is quite different from the other scrubs available in drugstores. It’s quite creamy and not rough at all. it has quite thick consistency and will not fall of even on turning the container upside down.The walnut particles are quite small and clean the face well. After using this scrub my skin feels soft and fresh. It did not break me out or make my skin feel or dry.
How To use: Massage on wet face and neck with fingertips. Avoid eye area. Rinse with water or damp wash cloth. Use daily or as needed.
Good for everyday use
Suitable for dry and sensitive skin
Does not leave the face dry and stretchy
Does not break me out
Natural ingredients are used
Act as a good massage cream too
may not suit people with oily skin since it has thick consistency.
Texture: The lotion is runny and spreads evenly. It gets absorbed pretty quickly but does make my skin feel a little greasy. . I do like to use it as it makes you sweat lot if used under foundation. I am sure this is going to be more useful during winters as it moisturizes skin pretty well.
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.
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.
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.
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.:)
Thumbs up 👍 –
stays all day
Blue-toned red(Shade “FIRESTORM”) looks best on women of colour.
Stains lips even after removing
doesn’t have any smell
Thumbs Down 👎 –
Transfers a lot
Mostly available online in india .
Great dupe of “Too faced melted “
Shade name is not mentioned on the tube
Overall, i love it because it is quite affordable dupe when compared to TOO FACED MELTED (which is $19 each). i love its formulation and the fact that it stays on forever . 🙂 i would love to see more shades in this lip lava range of makeup revolution.

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
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 .
Texture -the lipstick are smooth but not buttery.It glides on easily and gives of an opaque colour in one swipe.
No ingredients list anywhere on the packaging
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
Today i’m going to be reviewing an INDIAN BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE called fabbag. They have two types of monthly subscription services ,one for women and another for men.They even sell some products on their website.

i was really eager to know their theme for their december month…then later after subscribing to them, i came to know that they had not made any new bag …rather there was a choice for use to choose from any of the previous month’s fabbag.(the products in the bag obviously would not be the same as previous month)
So,i chose the September month one(which was their third anniversary bag).it was chic pink glittery bag ..which i noticed later that it was actually apt to the theme “party all night”
THE PRODUCTS IN THE BAG-
1)SKINN by TITAN CELESTE FOR WOMEN– It was a sample size product incased in a usual perfume casing.There was small glass spray bottle with the name of the perfume embossed on it and 20ml of perfume(Eau De Parfum) was in it.For me, it would easily last for a month.

5)SUGAR MATTE AS HELL AS CRAYON LIPSTICK (SHADE- Scarlett O’Hara)
This product was quite on rage on the instagram page of fabbag.Sugar cosmetics is newly launched brand of germany .This lip crayon was really smooth in texture and just glided easily on lips without making it feel dry or chapped.The name “SCARLETT O’HARA”is the name of character from the novel “Gone with wind”,i really liked the way they had named all there lip crayon…till now they have launched four beautiful shades.

PRICE FOR FULL SIZE( for 50gm)-Rs 450
I’ll be doing a full review on each of the products soon. 🙂
Winter’s are a time when people most often tend to have dandruff issues…
Anti dandruff shampoos only remove those flakes but do they prevent? NO. At the least most don’t.So the dandruff eventually returns and this viscious cycle goes on and on.Wilw i was surfing through youtube,i came across this product “Himalaya Anti Dandruff Hair Cream”….It has tulsi and tea tree (as it says on the product)
PRODUCT REVIEWED-Himalaya Anti Dandruff Hair Cream
PRICE- Rs 100 for 175 ml
DIRECTION OF USE-
Apply sufficient amount of cream from root to tip,massage gently on scalp using your fingers to spread the cream evenly .For better reslts,use daily before and after hair wash.
HOW I USE IT-
AS HAIRMASK- i apply this as a hairmask as mentioned above by generous applying the cream.
AS HAIR CONDITIONER-i have also used this as a conditioner…and this cream does a brillant job in doing that 🙂 .i use a much less amount of cream (as compared to HAIRMASK) and apply it only to the shaft of my hair …leave it for 2-3 minutes and wash it of.
AS ANTI -FRIZZ CREAM-it also helps in taming dry ,frizzy ,rough and tangled hair.After shampooing and conditoning ,when my hair dries up….i apply a small amount of cream to my finger tips….and run it through my hair. 🙂
PACKAGING-It comes in round white tub with green cap.
TEXTURE– The cream is super smooth and spreads amazingly well…a small quantity of it goes a long way.The consistency of the cream was so thick that it didn’t even drop when i turned the tub upside down.
SMELL- i like the smell of it…but some people might not….
The cream is truly a cream, very smooth to touch. It bought instant relief to itchy sensation(a common problem seen in dandruff scalp) as soon as this cream was applied.It was intense moisture and my scalp was cool and RELAXED. I combed my hair so as to spread the cream throughout the hair shaft.i applied the cream 2 to 3 hours before shampooing .
After washing off my hair…i did feel a change in the texture of my hair..it felt a lot smoother and tangle free….
For the dandruff to go away…it does take time and a clean scalp can be achieved on regular use.
Thumbs Up 👍-
affordable and easily Available
Improves the texture of hair
quite a lot of product to use ..the cream was filled up to the brim of the tub 🙂
Thumbs Down 👎 –
Some people might not like the smell of it.
it goes contain inactive ingredients like Methylparaben, Propylparaben.
Would i repurchase it? yes….definitely..at least for using it throughout winters.
This is winter time and a very common time to develop rough patches on skin and frequently chapping lips. Yes, we all love those fancy colorful products but at times, it is nice to go back to products that have been trusted for generations One such age old cream is Boroline.
I will review Boroline Antiseptic Ayurvedic Cream which is a very old cream that I have heard that my mum had used when she was a kid. This cream is a very popular. This use to be the best antiseptic cream at every cheap price at that time and I got it recently to cherish the same love that I have when my grand mum used to apply this antiseptic cream on me.
Clean the skin well and then apply Boroline – gently massaging in the cream.
Warming up Boroline and using it in molten state increases its efficacy – specially in curing skin infections.
In case the cut is open and deep, it is advisable to apply Boroline only when the cut has closed and begun to dry up. During early stages apply Suthol and keep the cut covered and dry.
Where Not to Use Boroline
Do not use Boroline on pimples which occur due to excessive oil secretion. Boroline being oily itself will aggravate the problem.
Do not apply Boroline on very deep wounds, which are raw and weeping. Keep such wounds dry and covered, preferably washing with Suthol twice a day and using medication as per Doctor’s advice. Cover with cotton and a clean gauge that allows air circulation.
TEXTURE & CONSISTENCY
The consistency of the cream is very thick. It does not melts easily & appears to be of stiff & sticky texture with white in color.
It is available in tube form and lip balm shaped green plastic case ,both of which are totally travel-friendly 🙂
Boroline Antiseptic Ayurvedic Cream is manufactured by GD Pharma and has remained exactly the same since it’s very introduction apart from the packaging. This is an all purpose cream for minor cuts and bruises to dry and chapped lips to dry patches of skin that occur often in winter. Boroline Antiseptic Ayurvedic Cream contains boric acid, that works as a mild antiseptic. Then there is zinc oxide, which is an astringent and also promotes healing of wounds. Lastly there are white petroleum jelly and anhydrous lanolin that give this cream is emollient and moisturizing properties.. The name of this cream is derived from its ingredients, Boroline Antiseptic Ayurvedic Cream is combination of essential oils, waxes and its remarkable antiseptic properties are a result of boric powder and zinc oxide.
I normally use this cream on my lips but one could use it anywhere in dry areas like feet, elbows, cuticles etc. Whenever I feel my lips to be dry I apply its thick layer on to my lips & leave it overnight & believe me I get to see a huge difference in my lips the next morning. My lips appears atleast 60% less dry & rough than before. Then I continue to use it in winters to protect them.
I can say this from my personnel experience that the Boroline cream can even heal severely chapped bleeding lips also within two days if applied nicely. It can even lighten dark lips to some extent if used regularly but for dryness its works like a charm.The best way to use it is applying its thick layers & leaving it overynight. Using this will definitely make lips smooth & soft. Thus this Boroline cream is definitely the best lip balm I have ever used.
It hydrates skin very well since it is oil based and even contains white petroleum jelly. It has a very long shelf life so, you need not worry about expiry date too. It is dirt cheap. A wonderful product for the price that one has to pay.
Thumbs up 👍 –
Very effective in healing dry chapped lips and skin
Shows results overnight in one application.
Easily available at medical stores or local stores
Since winter has arrived….i just thought that i should be sharing the moisturizer i have been using for quite a while…as Body Lotions,creams or butters are an absolute must-Have for winters.The product i’m about to review has sort of become a part of my skincare routine throughout the year…
DIRECTION FOR USE-Use daily after bath all over your body.
Use twice daily as a part of your skin care regime.
Massage lightly on skin with fingertips until completely absorbed.
What Pond’s Triple Vitamin Moisturizing Lotion claims:
Soft, smooth and radiant skin that leaves you feeling beautiful all over.
Packaging-It comes in sturdy white opaque plastic squeeze bottle with a pink flip flop cap.
My experience-It made my hands super smooth little quantity of this lotion work like magic and make my skin hydrated and moisturized whole day. It does not leave behind any shine or a greasy feeling. It disappears into the skin quickly The lotion moisturises the skin really well, and is suitable to be used for dry elbows, heels, knees, and as an over-all body lotion too. It is perfect for winters too. I have been re-purchasing it since last 4-5 years.”
This can easily become one solution for dry skin for the whole family without disturbing the budgetary balance. With this we can say that the claims made by Ponds is undoubtedly true that it gives soft , smooth and radiant skin .
Thumbs up 👍 –
Love the fragrance
smooth texture and perfect for combination skin like me
Deep Plum Pink that almost looks blackish brown/pinkish black
PACKAGING-It comes in a sleek black rectangular case, with a clear lid. The four eye shadows are embedded in a arrow shaded pattern. An tapering sponge tip applicator is also included in the quad. No mirror is included. The back of the case gives instructions for application.
Glow you eyes with diamonds with the creamiest powder shadow ever launched by Maybelline NY!
The most glowing diamond effect in 4 simple steps
Exclusive technology with gem-like sparkles that do not crush
Overall the packaging is quite handy and looks decent.As far as the texture is concerned it’s okay.The quad is very white, I mean every color feels it has some white in it, except the darker one.
Moreover,its difficult to work with them honestly as they are average in pigmented. There are good for a softer casual look and not for the day when you want to go heavy on eye makeup.
Al the four have shimmer to them, all silver shimmer. The light pink one is a very pretty metallic for the inner corner as well. The shimmer does not fly all over the place but still doesn’t feel packed well.Over all, sheer! SWATCHES-
In Natural light-
Thumbs up 👍 –
Great for multitasking. You can use the different shades in the quad as blusher, highlighter or liner.
easy to apply because of the instructs given on the back of the quad
