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.

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.

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_084516IMG_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

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

YOU CAN BUY IT FROM-

  • 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 👎-

  • Shades have number instead of names

 

RATING-4/5

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

REVIEWED BEAUTY SERVICE– Fab bag

My REVIEW

Fab bag curates their beauty and skincare products for their monthly bag based on their “theme” for every month.This time since december is all about christmas new year and celebration ….they had named their theme as “PARTY ALL NIGHT“.they often give clues and updates on their month’s theme on their instagram account HERE.

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”

IMG_20151231_101457

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.

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyeshadow Quad by EYESTUDIO

Hi lovelies, :*

i have had many neutral palettes….but after hearing a lot of good things about the maybelline quad …i decided to choose and try out on of them.. 🙂

PRODUCT REVIEWED– Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyeshadow Quad

SHADE– WINE PINK

PRICE- Rs 495 for 2.5 gms

The shades are in the quad are:

  • Creamy Highlighter with silver shimmer
  • Light metallic baby pink hue with lots of shimmer
  • Bright magenta with a slight hint of simmer
  • 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.

DSCN5011[1]

DSCN5010[1]

Product Claims:

 

  • 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

DSCN5030[1]

My Experience-

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-

Thumbs up 👍 –

  • Great for multitasking. You can use the different shades in the quad as blusher, highlighter or liner.

  • easily available

Thumbs down 👎 –

  • Pigmentation is not so good.quite sheer.
  • too much sparkle
  • doesn’t lasts long

Rating-3.5/5

Maybelline baby lips spiced up

Hi beauties,

IT’s winter time…So i thought it would be an awesome thing to review some lip balms i have always been using on the go…!! whenever i travel or even at home to keep by lips hydrated 🙂

Maybelline New York launches the all new Baby Lips Spiced Up, made for the Indi pop generation specially and developed to perfectly suit the range of Indian skin tones.

Spiced Up comes in delicious flavors –

  • Spicy Cinnamon,
  • Berry Sherbet,
  • Tropical Punch

Product reviewed– MAYBELLINE SPICED UP

Shade reviewed– Tropical punch

QUANTITY– 4 gms

PRICE -Rs175 ~ 2.6 USD ( i bought it from nykaa.com fir Rs. 131)

DSCN5080[1]

PACKAGING-The Maybelline Spiced Up Lip Balmcomes in an oval shaped cardboard box with cute graphic designs and other details about the product. The packaging of the balm is like the regular baby lips available in India. The lip balm tube is color-coded which makes it easy to locate in your makeup stash. It is also travel friendly and the cap shuts well with a click sound

What the product claims:

DSCN5082[1]

– Deeper shades to suit sun-kissed skin tones
– Stronger, lip-smacking flavours
– Intense 12hr care
– Enriched with SPF 20 for sun protection

Colour: The colour of the lip balm tube of shade Tropical Punch is a pink with reddish undertones. When swatched or applied on the lips, it shows up like a light pink, still leaning more towards red.

Texture-the balm definitely feels heavy on lips(feels like you have applied boreline on)….but at the same time its moisturizing…It’s definitely long lasting than “MAYBELLINE ELECTRO POP”. (I have reviewed “MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS ELECTRO POP ”   HERE )

Smell: The fragrance of this lip balm is very fruity with a hint of spice..(just like the name of the product states 😉 )

My experience-Tropical Punch has a deep pinkish tint, Berry Sherbet is more on the reddish side while Spicy Cinnamon has a brownish tint. These add a hint of color to the lips which is perfect for natural looks.Colorwise, I quite like what Maybelline has done here. The tints are deep enough to show up on the lips but not so pigmented that they cross over to the lipstick territory! For some people the texture of the balm might seem heavy after application..even on one swipe…..but its ok for me. 🙂

Its definitely hydrates your lips and gives a nice healthy sheen….for everyday use. The only downside for me was the packaging…i really liked the packaging of the “electro pop ” range of maybelline baby lips!!
