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 .

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.

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!

Texture-

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.

Pigmentation:

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

DSCN4986

My experience-

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.
  • not available easily

MAYBELLINE CHEEKY GLOW BLUSH FRESH CORAL

Hi beauties. ❤

Product reviewed– maybelline cheeky glow blush

Shade reviewed– Fresh coral

Quantity– 7 g

Price-Rs 275

Shelf Life : 24 months

Smell :  No noticeable smell

Where i bought it from- Nykaa

Ingredient-Ingredients list cannot be seen unless you pull the sticker at the back

Maybelline-Cheeky-Glow-In-Fresh-Coral-6

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!

DSCN5024[1]DSCN5021[1]

my experience-

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.

Maybelline Clearglow Bright Benefit Cream

hi beauties ❤

So what are BB Creams? Essentially BB Creams or Blemish Balm Creams are a Korean Concept, they are supposed to be multi use products combining moisturization, anti ageing, concealing, mattifying, as well as giving you all the benefits of sunblock and a tinted moisturizer. Maybelline BB Cream is not really a true BB Cream in the Korean sense, but lets judge it on its own merit of what it delivers…

BB cream, also known as Blemish Balm, Blemish Base or Beblesh Balm, is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia.  Originally formulated in Germany it was initially used by dermatologists to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and refine highly sensitive skin while providing light coverage for post-laser scars, acne and other blemishes.  BB creams come in a variety of different formulations and qualities. Some are said to have skin whitening or brightening properties. Others are said to be anti-acne or anti-wrinkle, some are intended to even out skin tone, and yet others to lighten blemish scars. BB creams are sometimes used like a primer under foundation, and if tinted may supposedly replace foundation and some newer ones are advertised as having functions of primer, foundation, moisturizer, sun block, pore minimization and skin refining together, making them an economic skin care solution.
Brands on the market aside others include BRTC – Bio Remedies Therapeutic Cosmetic, Dr. Jart, Lioele, Skin Food,Etude, The Face Shop, Missha and SKIN79.

Smell-Light nice flowery and a sweetsmell…i love the smell of bb cream

My experience

First of all,  i use the shade Nude which is apparently the darkest shade, but its a really good shade match for my medium skin, which makes me wonder what shade the very dusky girls would wear. The consistency is slightly thicker than other tinted moisturizers.

The Maybelline Clearglow BB Cream is tinted like a foundation and has lotion-like consistency, neither too thick nor runny. It’s a lightweight, water-based cream and blends amazingly into the skin in no time, just like a moisturiser.It really great for combination type for skin and gives off a dewy finish.  It also provides pretty decent coverage- not like that of a foundation ,  but perfect for everyday wear- you can definitely see that your skin is more even with all your splotchiness and discoloration sort of hidden, and with a glowy finish.

Directions to use

  • Use on a perfectly cleansed skin.
  • Just squeeze out a little BB Cream ob your palm and then apply in spots over your forehead, chin and cheeks.
  • Use your finger tips to blend the cream all over your face with short, quick strokes.

Thumbs Up 👍 –

  • Evens out my complexion
  • travel friendly cute and adorable packaging…
  • Gives a very light coverage that is apt for daily / routine makeup.
  • Brightens and lightens the face without leaving whitish cast.
  • Offers a healthy glow to your face.
  • Includes SPF 21
  • Doesn’t make skin too oily or greasy even after hours of application…
  • Reasonably priced…
  • Has fruity, pleasant, slight fragrance.
  • Doesn’t cause breakouts or clog pores.

Thumbs down 👎 –

*Limited shade selection.
*The quantity you get in one tube is a little less. It won’t last you more than 20-25 days when used daily.
*Contains parabens.

Rating– 5/5 🙂

would i repurchase it?

yes i will…its a BB cream worth trying..i absolutely love it!!
