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.

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.:)

Thumbs up 👍 –

  • Superb formulation
  • stays all day
  • Great pigmentation
  • 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 .
  • Drugstore price.
  • Great dupe of “Too faced melted “
  • Shade name is not mentioned on the tube

Rating– 4/5

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.

Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper

hi lovelies, 😉

I am so glad that brands in India are coming up with something for eyebrows which was forever ignored until now.There are very few good brow pencil available in india….No wonder when Maybelline launched its “Fashion brow duo shaper” it got sold out right away! 🙂 This pencil is available in two shades- BROWN and GREY .

Product Reviewed– Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper

IMG_20151220_065636_1450575209924

Shade reviewed– Brown

PRICE- RS196( i got this at discounted rate from Snapdeal ).Its market price is Rs 245(3.6 usd) for 0.5 gms of product

What the Company claims: The Fashion Brow is the ultimate duo shaper with a natural mineral powder finish on one end and a 0.2mm micro lead tip pencil on the other to give you an ultra-soft precision for perfectly defined eyebrows up to 12 hours. It fixes gaps and blends seamlessly for smooth, stunning brows. If you’re not born with brows that are naturally full and shaped to perfection, Fashion Brow will guarantee you to get the best look for them.

-Duo shaper with a natural mineral powder finish.
– 0.2mm micro lead tip pencil.
– Double ended eyebrow pencil.
– Perfectly defined eyebrows up to 12 hours.

Shade-Brown is what usually works for everyone…and gives of a more natural look.The grey shade can be used if you have sparse brow hair to fill in the gaps .

Packaging-The Maybelline Fashion Brow Shaper Duo comes as a sleek black plastic packaging with color coded caps. One end has the retractable slim pencil while the other has a sponge applicator which applies the brow powder.

Ingredient-the list is mentioned on the outer plastic wrapping in which this pencil comes in.

My experience-In the ‘Brown’ one , the pencil part still looks a bit grey and is not completely brown. The pencil is a bit hard because of which i think it is easier to have a control as to how much product you want on your brows and how much you want to fill in and in which areas.
The cap on the other end of the eyebrow pencil has a bed of shadow in it and the sponge is lying over the shadow only so it attracts as much shadow as it can. So when you take out the sponge to fill in your eyebrows, it automatically gives a muted brown shade and one can easily do about 3-4swipes with the amount of product that comes out on the sponge.

The eye brow pencil from maybelline lasts on me pretty much the whole time without smudging or budging. It is not however a water-proof brow filler. The texture of fashion brow duo is smooth and lightweight. It doesn’t feel as though you’re wearing anything on your eyebrows. It is not at all difficult to take off, one swipe of your favorite makeup remover and off it comes.
