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.:)

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.

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.

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.
