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.

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_122405

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.:)

SWATCH-

Thumbs up 👍 –

  • Superb formulation
  • stays all day
  • Great pigmentation
  • Blue-toned red(Shade “FIRESTORM”) looks best on women of colour.

  • Drugstore price.
  • Great dupe of “Too faced melted “

Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick

Hi everyone!

Lakme enrich satin lipstick range is one of the range from LAKME that is still availble 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_084857IMG_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

THUMBS UP 👍 –

  • both shades are best for wheatish skin color
  • 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.

THUMBS DOWN 👎-

  • ingredient list not mentioned
  • Shades have number instead of names

 

RATING-4/5

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

How to Use

Ingredients

lakme skin gloss

Shelf Life : 24 months

Color : Light Blue

Smell : Artificial Cologne like Smell

DSCN4945[1]

My experience-To be frank we all love it when our skin glows and I wanted to try skincare products from our very own Indian brand Lakme and hence I got it to see if it lives up to the claims.

The Lakme Skin Gloss Gel Creme is enriched with minerals to hydrate your skin for a healthy glow. Along with moisture for a soft, supple texture, it gives your skin a layer of flawless luster. It is a light glaze with mineral laden glacial water which hydrates to make skin look radiant and moisture coats your skin with gloss. It gives skin soft and supple texture along with a flawless luster.

The Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Creme  has a very lightweight texture and is perfectly named since it is somewhere between a gel and a cream hence has properties of both which is unique. The major gripe I have about it is the strong masculine cologne like fragrance, I mean who would add such strong fragrance in skincare products for women, but thankfully it fades within few minutes of applying it.

It gives an instant cooling sensation upon application which feels so good in this hot weather.It is not moisturising enough for dry patches on skin or even for winters

My skin drinks it up immediately, and it feels super smooth and soft, without feeling heavy, oily or sticky. But mind you it feels greasy if gone overboard, so make sure to apply little quantity. There was little glossy or rather glowy effect on my combination skin, but definitely not as much lakme claims. It provides an excellent base for makeup as well as it makes blending very easy.  But my combination skin gets very oily and shiny few hours after applying it,

Thumbs up 👍 –

  • Unique and very attractive packaging.travel friendly
  • Great lightweight and smooth texture which gets absorbed instantly
  • Did not feel oily and heavy on skin
  • Hydrates and moisturizes skin instantly giving a healthy natural glow.can be used in place of face highlighter. i use it that way more often 🙂
  • Makes a great and smooth base for makeup
  • Contains Mineral rich glacial water
  • easily available

Thumbs down 👎 –

• Not moisturizing enough for dry skin types and for winters

  • As lakme claims it to be a day time product, it certainly lacks SPF

Texture-

The texture of this lipstick is thick and super creamy.it is not buttery but feels quite sturdy to use. it will not break or dent with pressure as well.

Pigmentation:

The lipstick is fantastic in terms of pigmentation.It is very opaque and thick and it coats the lips completely. The color is super bright and pigmented, in fact you can try using it like stain or tint

DSCN4986

My experience-

I have to tell you, do not get intimidated by how blazingly pink it looks in the tube; because when you do put it on, it gives this super-perky, super-bright pink colour, and yet looks flattering on everyone. It’s literally as perfect as any bright pink lipstick can ever be!

The lipstick i’m reviewing today was in limited edition of lakme…It has a very unique shade..in the dark the colour of the lipstick looks purplish while in the daytime it’s fuschia pink…and thats the thing i love most about this lipstick!!..

the lipstick might seem a bit dry for people with dry lips so i would recommend a lipbalm under it .

thumbs up 👍 

  • This is a pretty, blue-based pink, which will definitely suit most Indian skin-tones.
  • It brightens & dresses up the face instantly
  • The longevity is excellent, especially at that price.

Thumbs down 👎 –

  • If you have very dry lips, exfoliating before putting this one would definitely help.
  • not available easily

MAYBELLINE CHEEKY GLOW BLUSH FRESH CORAL

Hi beauties. ❤

Product reviewed– maybelline cheeky glow blush

Shade reviewed– Fresh coral

Quantity– 7 g

Price-Rs 275

Shelf Life : 24 months

Smell :  No noticeable smell

Where i bought it from- Nykaa

Ingredient-Ingredients list cannot be seen unless you pull the sticker at the back

Maybelline-Cheeky-Glow-In-Fresh-Coral-6

Packaging-it comes in a very compact packaging. I don’t particularly like the white plastic pan packaging but its affordable and the product itself is great so I’m not too picky about that. The good thing though is that the lid is transparent so its really easy to locate different shade if you own more than one. And the best part is that its really small and compact!

DSCN5024[1]DSCN5021[1]

my experience-

This is a bright shade of warm pinkish coral which lifts up your mood.The texture is reasonably soft and smooth though not to the point of being powdery. It doesn’t kick up excess product when the brush is swiped across the surface. It is well pigmented though not overly so, it gives soft color in single swipe which can be built up in 2-3 swipes.

When applied and blended it translates as a beautiful flush and looks very healthy! I like that the pink hue doesn’t clash with our Indian skin tone. The coral in it makes this shade very flattering. This is the only matte shade out of the three and the most pigmented.

Thumbs up- 

  • Sleek ,sturdy and compact packaging which makes it travek-friendly
  • good pigmentation
  • matte shade
  • amazing bright colour
  • suits all skin tones
  • comes at a reasonable price
  • superb quality
  • easily available

Thumbs down-

  • Stay power is not so much
  • Ingredients list cannot be seen unless you pull the sticker at the back
  • no applicator or mirror provided
