Swatch of Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper

When I got this product, I was extremely excited to try it as I am growing my brows out and haven’t gone to professional to get it threaded for a long time and am really struggling to keep my brows look good. I have heard a lot about this product and I was keeping fingers crossed as I wanted to keep a natural touch to my look.

How to Apply? Fill in your brow with Pencil with a light hand, retouch with Powder and there you go.

It is super easy to apply and if you are a lazy person like me then this product is just for you. It takes only 2-3 minutes for application and you are ready to go.

It has about good 6 hours staying power. It gives a natural look to eyebrows without making it look fake which is a major plus point. It doesnt fade away by rubbing and it doesnt transfer at all.

The best part about this duo shaper is – it is easy to apply and is budget-friendly.

I was looking forward to try it and I chose a regular college day. It was the perfect time to test it as I m usually back to home after 6-7 hours.

I paired it up with Fit me concealer to conceal all the blemishes on my face. I applied the foundation by applying dots all over the face and blended with my Forever 21 blender.

And I was surprised with the finish and natural look I got at the end. I have oily skin and large pores. And the product was up to the words that it says and i m loving it.

I was having high expectation with this lipstick as I heard some amazing reviews about it.

I ordered Nykaa Matte Lipstick in shade Naughty Nude. It is a pretty nude shade in reddish or pinkish tone.

picsart_11-04-07-40-47

It comes in a pretty black case which has a magnetic cap. So, you dont need to worry about the lipstick’s cap being open on its own.

picsart_11-04-07-37-32

It has pretty good stay of 4-5 hours. It is good for dry and chapped lips as it hide away the lines.

I applied it in the morning, it stayed for good 4-5 hours and as I ate sncks with the lipstick on, little lip color was worn off from inside part of lips. But that was okay for me.

I liked the price as well because it is budget friendly.

The description of product in website somehow does justice to the product. But it is not completely matte. Keep this in mind if you are looking for complete matte lipstick.

My Experience:

This sponge is very handy and cute looking. I just spotted it in Forever 21 store. I immediately purchased it as i wanted to try something like beauty blender to do my makeup.img_20161023_191123325

REVLON KOHL KAJAL (BLACK)- REVIEW

Hello everyone. I m here for another review of REVLON KOHL KAJAL in shade black. I was using Lakme Eyeconic Kajal for a long time but this time i wanted to change it. I head to my near cosmetic store n bought this. I have applied it for good 3-4 days so it is my tried and tested review.

picsart_09-13-06-24-00

What Product says- 

Get the dramatic kohl look.

  • Lines eyes with intense Matt color
  • Glides on softly and smoothly for a rich kohl look
  • Suitable for application on inner rim of the eyes
  • Works best on hot and humid climates

PRICE- MRP 225/-

It comes up with a sharpener which is free.

MY EXPERIENCE-

I was having good expectations from this kajal. This kajal is not in glide up form. You have to sharp it like pencil. It is a good black matt colorish kajal.

picsart_09-13-06-25-01

I applied it on my normal college day at 9 am and I was outside for whole day and came back home at 7 pm at evening. It was a good day to test it as i don’t carry my kajal along with me to reapply it. It was easily applicable on inner rim. It stayed perfectly for about good 4-5 hours. After that, it started to smudge up a little but still it stayed and didn’t get off from my eye completely. After that, I applied it again next day. It showed me same results. But I was still little bit satisfied with it as it gave me a clean look.

picsart_09-13-06-22-04

WILL I BUY IT AGAIN?

No. It didn’t stayed up on my expectations completely. I was looking forward for it to stay for atleast 7 hours properly. However,it is easy to apply and doesn’t harm eyes which is a good thing.

RATING- 

3.5/5

MAYBELLINE COLOR SHOW LIPSTICK REVIEW- POP OF PINK!

PINK, this name brings smile to every girl. A girl cant get enough of pink lipsticks in her makeup kit. Agree? At least this happens to me.

I was longing for a lip color which is light pink and can look good on my chapped dry lips. Maybelline has always been my favourite brand. So, I headed to search for Maybelline Color Show new range of lipstick. First of all, it is cheap in rate so bingo! And secondly, I can totally afford it. It says that it is matte and creamy.

PRICE – INR 325/-

MY EXPERIENCE- 

PicsArt_08-12-08.25.05

This is what the shade looks like. It is a creamy light pink color. Good for fair complexion people. Also, ladies with medium complexion can buy this shade but it is not for dark complexion. It can look pigmented at times.

It has long stay but not up to the mark. It stayed for good 3-4 hours after that I had to reapply it. However, I liked the color. You can wear it at any day for any occasion. Best for office and college. As the MRP of this lipstick is under budget so I wont mind buying it again.  It comes in a black lipstick case which looks very cute.

PicsArt_08-12-08.27.13

I purchased it from Nykaa. 

Link you can find here- 

http://www.nykaa.com/maybelline-color-show-matte-lipstick.html

Is it good for dry lips?

I would say yes, According to its price, It do justice to chapped lips. Also, It has creamy texture. But yeah, you have to reapply it again after some hours. It doesn’t make lips dry, so it is a plus point.

RATING-

4/5

WOULD I REPURCHASE IT?

Yes, I would. But certainly not this shade again.

I love lipsticks. But I always have one issue- Chapped lips. I always try to look for lipstick which can be moist on dry and chapped lips and doesn’t make them more dry after some time.

Street Wear Color Rich Ultra Moist Lip Color claims to be ultra moist with non drying formula. The company says that it will not show fine lines on the lips after applying. All these properties attracted me and i ordered this lip color in shade – PS I AM SEXY.

WHAT COMPANY SAYS-

Exclusive Street Wear Color Rich Ultra Moist Lip color with mega-moisturizers seals in color and softness.

  • Lovely rich shades, which glide like a dream.
  • Very moisturizing, even if you have dry chapped lips, it’s not going to look flaky without a lip balm under it.
  • Does not settle into fine lines.
  • It gives just the right amount of shine to the lips, so you don’t need to put on a gloss.
  • The texture and finish is very soft and creamy.

IMG_20160724_234142549

MY EXPERIENCE-

I was waiting eagerly for my order. I suffer a lot from dry lips. No lipstick has ever made my lips moisturized and stays on for very long without giving flakes on lips.

As soon as I received my order within 4-5 Days. I opened it and saw this beautifully packed lipstick.

IMG_20160726_195426565

When I applied it for the first time, it was smooth in texture. It applied on my lips with no pain and was looking nice. It didn’t made my lips look more drier and as it claimed, it didn’t showed any lines and flakes on my lips which was a plus point.

It was wearable for some hours and stayed for quite long. I found it budget-friendly and who have a problem of dry and chapped lips should give it a try. The shade which i bought is in purplish shade and looks great.
