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 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).
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.
. 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.
easy to use
medium shade is a bit reddish ,,..not so good for indian skin tone
no brush is given with it…so you have to buy a brush for its application
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.

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
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.
This MAYBELLINE FASHION BROW DUO SHAPPER IS A DUPE FOR-
Soap &Glory’s ‘Love is Blonde’
Makeup revolution brow arch
THUMBS UP 👍-
easily available -offline and online
easy to use
smooth in texture
THUMBS DOWN 👎 –
It might take a little getting used to at first. But once you get the hang of it, the Maybelline brow shaper can do wonders.
Not waterproof,it might get washed of during summer days due to sweat
i absolutely love it…and would definitely recommend it to everyone else! 🙂
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-

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
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.
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
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.

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!
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.
Sleek ,sturdy and compact packaging which makes it travek-friendly
amazing bright colour
suits all skin tones
comes at a reasonable price
Stay power is not so much
