Maybelline's Color Sensational Moisture Lipsticks - Review and Swatches.

Hello Gorgeous!

         Did ur Santa gift u yet!
 OOOOOO.....I forgot, its too early for christmas!
  Don't think I dont know which month of the year we are living in!
 After buying this lipstick from Maybelline colorsensational range, Chrismtas is all I can think of, apart from nude eyes and flawless skin/face, Winged eyeliner etc etc.

 SUMMER SUNSET

Honestly, I ordered this color for my Mom and even checked it online for the swatches but didn't knew the exact color.
So, when I first saw it, I was disappointed coz it wasnt the way showed online in swatches but then trying it out on and off..I kinda started liking the color.
It is one of those Red lipsticks which can be worn with the right makeup.


WAYS OF WEARING THIS LIPCOLOR:
> Apply it with a lip brush for lighter pigmentation.
> Wear it like you normally would for proper color

This is how it looks following the second way:




PROS:
1. Smooth and Creamy, Glides super easily,
2. Rich in Color,
3. Provides enough moisture.
4. Doesn't fade off easily.
5. Reasonably Priced,
6. Gorgeous shade, suit most skin shades,
7. Easily available.

CONS:
1. It will bleed as the color is strong and creamy.
2. Boring Packaging.


OVERALL VERDICT:

Maybelline Color sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick Summer Sunset is a wearable red shade that doesn't looks natural. The texture of the lipstick is smooth and creamy, its well pigmented and gives a wear time of about 3-3.5 hours. I kind of just started liking it. It can be worn with neutral eyes or winged liner. 
You can try it if you're looking for a warm red shade.


Love

  It is THE most perfect nude for me. The best quality of this shade...One swipe is good, Two Swipes are great, Three swipes amazing and it keeps getting better..The lipstick is nicely moisturized and it doesn't feel dry on the lips even after long hours of wearing.

Lakme enrich lipstick in 134...Review and Swatch!!


Lakme Enrich Satin - 134

Hey Beautifuls,
           I hope you're all doin great...Festive season is on, and what else is a better reason to do some extra shopping ;) . So, today I am reviewing another shade that i bought recently from the Lakme fantasy collection in 134 (they should have names too).  


Its a shade which almost everybody can pull off in their own pretty way. The first time when I swatched it, I thought its a lil' dark for me, then I thought there is always a second time and it was perfect.
I absolutely like this color. Its a nude mauve pretty shade with pink undertones. You can team it up with bold or neutral eyes. Perfect for daily plus formal wear.
Left to Right: One Swipe , Two Swipes





PROS:
1Smooth Texture, Glides on easily
2. Nicely Pigmented
3. Natural and semi-matte finish
4. Reasonably Priced
5. Easily Available..

CONS:
1.  I don't like the Smell/Odour.
2.  Lips feel a little dry after some time.

This is how it looks on me..Will upload do a total face picture soon.



Overall Verdict:

The quality of the lipstick is average when it comes to staying power and texture but the color overlaps the cons as itself is a very pretty color. I have read about the bullet breakage, but (touchwood) I have not experienced it till now (but if something like that happens, ill update) . I find the packaging pretty decent, nothing too fancy about it.

Lakme Enrich Satin Lip Color 133. - Review and Swatch

Lakme Enrich Satin - 133



"Nude" is making me go mad. I have not found my perfect nude shade from the longest time ever.
So, in search of my perfect nude, I came across this Lakme enrich satin lipcolor in 133.
Its a soft nude peachy color with brown undertones. 

Without Flash (Actual color)
 Its a perfect shade to team up with Brown/Copper/Bronze Smokey Eyes or even with Neutral Eyes for a natural look. I find this color really nice but not much for pigmented lips ( like mine.. :(( sob sob)

Just Gold ..


Hey Beautifuls..
 Just a quick review about this new Lipstick I bought.

So it was one of those days when I went out to buy random stuff(no makeup) and then I saw this beauty sales artist(yes! I call them artist, coz of the way they sell the products even when the customers aint ready or in the mood to buy) recommending this shade and I went ahead and bought it.


 Its from the brand “Just Gold” a reknown name in the local markets and since they don’t have names and the packaging says A-17, I call it Nude. (so basic, n I say I call it..blurr!)

It’s a pink base nude color perfect to wear everyday or one can glam it with Bold Eyes too.


What I think about the product:
·       *  Love the shade.
·       *Glides semi- smoothly
·      * Staying power is moderate
·      * Lips feel a lil chapped (If applied without moisturizing the lips before)
·      * Like the packaging
·      *Super Cheap
·      *Good Pigmentation.

     L to R (One swipe, Two Swipes, Three Swipes)

Will I re-buy it:
I would like to go for more shades in this range, but I wont mind buying it and specially for a price soo cheap( Rs  100)

COLORBAR VELVET MATTE LIPSTICK

Hey Gorgeous,

               Are you one of those who love "PINK" . Well, I definitely am.
I'm not one of those girly girly types, but I like PINK ;) (probably, thats the choice of the girl within me.)



Smoky Rose is one of those lipstick shades which i bought randomly without testing the color(neva do that..girls!!) and I don't regret it.
 

   Its a beautiful 'hot pink' shade which one can carry at any time of the day and which suits every skin tone( I think so!)
            Left- One Swipe, Right- Two Swipes

COMPANY SAYS:
"Its unique 2 in 1 formula gives the lips creamy, yet a matte finish. It has Vitamin E which gives the lips a soft and supple appearance. Stay upto 5 hours on application."

WHAT I THINK:

>It does moisturize my lips and give a matte finish.
> It does stay on for a longer time.
>It doesn't make the lips feel chapped.
> It is pocket friendly
> I like the packaging.


WILL I RE-BUY IT:

 Absolutely YES! I'm in love with this shade. The best pink lip shade till date.

PRICE: Rs. 250/-

No HEAT Tight Bouncy Curls..

Hey friends,
 
                  Its heard..  "Hair brings one's self image into focus, its a tangle of mysterious prejudices."

Talking about tangles, I am in love with curls-be it soft curls, out curls but my favourite at the moment is tight bouncy curls. But, phew its really a job to do it with a curling iron.
For some reason, my brain is working a lot lately..and got an idea of curling my hair without heat..Yea, i know many people have done it, and i am not being a scientist at all..hahaha...(Something's wrong)
So, here how i did it...I loved it and its fun..Hope u like it too..

Things you need:
1. Foam (Yes, that yellow colored sheet of foam, or any)
2. Scissors
3. Water spray
4. Serum
5. Hair

1. Start with damp hair, you can waterspray each strand or you can do it like I did, freshly washed hair.
2. Cut the foam in thin stripes or in french fries shape :) as per the length of the hair.

3. Take small sections of hair, water spray them , take the french fry and wrap around the hair and tie    it.SIMPLE!! (Yes, its that easy)



4. Repeat this to ur whole head.

5. Leave it on for minimum 2 hours or max. 6-7 hours.
 (THIS IS JUST AFTER AN HOUR.)
And that's it, you have beautiful tight curls without heat.



Show some love by supporting and following my blog.. :)

Take care..
