MAKEUP REVOLUTION- ULTRA AQUA BROW TINT

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

MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIP LAVA

Hi guys,

As soon as i discovered that TOO FACED MELTED LIPSTICK’s have a dupe …..i knew that  i had to get my hands on these- MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIP LAVA.

PRODUCT REVIEWED– MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIP LAVA

SHADE REVIEWED– Firestorm

PRICE-RS 700( 4.59usd /2.99GBP) for 12ml

IT COMES IN FOUR SHADES-

  • Unleash(peachy shade)
  • Shockwave(neon purple)
  • Forgiven(Nude)
  • Firestorm( True red)

AVAILABLE (mostly online)-

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.

IMG_20160117_121811

IMG_20160117_121824

IMG_20160117_122204

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.
  • 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.

Mauve/ pinkish-brown shades of lipstick i’d love to have! (with mentioned links)

hi!!

i really  like the mauvey, pinkish brown shades a lot .(which is often worn by kylie jenner…)

the reason why i like it because I feel mauve lipsticks suit all types of skin tones – from fair to dusky, warm to cool types.Mauve lipstick can give your lips a tiny flush (a just-bitten type of color) that brings just the right amount of color to a look that’s otherwise focused on natural, nude makeup. This pale or “dusty” color—whether it’s pink or purple—also allows you to try out matte or even metallic finishes in a more subtle fashion than a neon pink. But, the plus we’re most excited about? It’s an appropriate choice for just about EVERY occasion.

URBAN DECAY NAKED 2 DUPE -Makeup Revolution London Redemption Iconic 2 !!!

hi everyone!! , 😀

I just love love love this palette.!!! urban decay dupe at a totally affordable price!! 🙂
I recently online ordered it at a very discounted rate of $2 (rs.600) from jabong.com.

Packaging: This eye shadow palette comes in a very neat packaging. The frame is black in colour and the rest is transparent plastic. You can see the gorgeous shades through it. The back side shows some details of the product. It has a flip mechanism, which shuts with a click. The palette comes with a two sided brush. It’s very simple, but yet the palette looks very elegant. I like the packaging.

IMG_20151209_142844

 

 

Colour/pigmentation: For simplicity I have numbered all the shades. Let’s go through them one by one.

Makeup-Revolution-London-Redemption-Iconic2-5

Makeup-Revolution-London-Redemption-Iconic2-9

1. It’s a matte skin-coloured shade.

2. Shimmery golden colour.

3. This shade is the shimmery version of shade number 1.

4. It’s very similar to shade number 2, but has some bronze in it. Almost looks like rose gold or shimmery copper colour. Love this shade!

5. It’s a very dull brown colour, which gravitates towards grey. It is matte and is pigmented, but doesn’t show up on my skin, no matter how many times I swatch it.  😦

6. This shade is a proper bronze gold colour with shimmers in it.

Makeup-Revolution-London-Redemption-Iconic2-6

Makeup-Revolution-London-Redemption-Iconic2-10

7. Again a shimmery gold, which is slightly brown. Can be described as dull gold shade.

8. This shade is a very nice shimmery taupe colour. Adore this shade!

9. This is s silvery-gold shimmer colour. Great for defining the brow bone. Can also be used as a high lighter, but with a very light hand.

10. This one is a proper rose gold colour. Again a shimmery shade.

11. Very close to shade number 8, but this one has more brown in it.

12. This one is an intense black shade for an intense smokey eye look.

All the shades are super pigmented, especially the first and the last shade. Only shade number 5 disappoints me, but it may show up on fair skinned beauties. Comparatively, the last 6 shades show up on me better because they are darker shades. The first six shades are pigmented, but since I have medium skin tone, It doesn’t show on me that well. The colour selection is amazing. This palette is perfect for all traditional occasions. I’m sure you’ll get a lot of use from this palette!

Texture: The glitters are very finely milled. The mattes don’t feel chalky at all. The eye shadows are very smooth in texture and are super blendable; you don’t feel the glitters. Only for one or two shades, primer is necessary. But apart from that, I don’t need a primer. Also, there’s a bit of fallout in the palette.

Staying Power: The eye shadows stay on for good 4-5 hours without a primer. I like the staying power of these eye shadows.

thumbs up 👍 of Makeup Revolution London Redemption Palette Iconic 2:

  • Since it is available at a discount, this one is an affordable palette.and its a dupe of the famous urban decay naked 2.
  • Value for money.
  • Super smooth texture.
  • awesome pigmentation.
  • Nice mix of 3 mattes and 9 shimmery shadows.
  • Suitable for Indian occasions.
  • Versatile shades.
  • Nice and classy packaging.
  • Good staying power.
  • Blendable.
  • The colors/shades would suit Indian skin tones .

thumbs down 👎  of Makeup Revolution London Redemption Palette Iconic 2:

  • Shade number 5 disappoints me.
