Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Burgundy Blush : Review, Swatch, Price and FOTD

24.11.17 0 Comments
Heeeyyyyyaaa lovelies..
Here's hoping everyone's doing well and with the chill in the air, the bolder makeup is seeing the broad day light out of the stash.
Seriously speaking, deep dark shades and not worrying about the melting foundation are the only reasons why I love winters. Otherwise, I'm not a big fan of layering up. Even the smallest task seems huge when it's cold outside. Winter would be the favourite season of the homo sapiens who have the luxury of cuddling in a bed with their favourite book and coffee by their side. For a mom of two.. it's simply not!!! So what ends up being most pleasurable is not feeling overboard at the thought of deep rich colours.
Speaking of choice of colours, I have my own pantone colour of the year every season that might remotely have nothing to do with its official counterpart. 

This year it's ox blood...slash..deepest wine... slash...dark burgundy...slash...deep maroon with a black undertone. I was getting intrigued by so many brands for this particular shade from lime crime to ABH to much pocket friendly nyx..but since I knew I wouldn't wear this every now and then I didn't wanna spend so much on it. So after searching high and low I landed to our good old Maybelline. 
( If you are looking for a gorgeous purple lipstick from the drugstore..a la Mac Heroine..Click Here)
The lipstick in question is Maybelline Creamy Matte in the shade Burgundy Blush.


Price: INR 575 /-

Packaging: 

I have nothing great to reveal in the packaging department because:
A) Maybelline Creamy Lipsticks aren't new in the market and there is a possibility you already own one of its variant.
B) Maybelline hasn't explored any new territory in the packaging department.
Comes in the regular Maybelline colour sensational tube with a cool brown matte translucent cap.
The sticker having the shade name is colour coded.

Shade:

 THE reason why I bought this lipstick is its ultra gorgeous dark chocolate with a hint of deep burgundy (ox-blood) shade. This is EXACTLY what I was hunting for. Burgundy Blush is a pretty close dupe of Lime Crime Wicked and Anastasia Beverly Hills Heathers. I can even trace its similarity with Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania which is a cult favourite fall lippy. It is clearly the deepest shade in my stash and I can see myself wearing it hell lot this winter. 
Oh yes!! It makes teeth appear much whiter!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

Texture:
If I had two hearts I would give one to this shade and another to its texture. It is very smooth to apply and it right away settles to a matte finish. The formula is very comfortable and non-drying. Its very light weight and feels like nothing on the lips. 
Absolutely non-sticky...Absolute love!

Pigmentation:
BOMB!! Need I say more.. One swipe is all you need baby!! 

Staying Power:
If you follow me on instagram, I posted a pic of me wearing this  and it looked pretty presentable even after 9 longs hours. It doesn't stain but it doesn't move either.

How it looks on me..!


If you ever wished to have a deeeeeep lipstick for fall..BUY THIS asap!!

Lakme 9 To 5 Lipstick in Coffee Command : Review, Price and Swatches

27.10.17 0 Comments
I have been been a nude lips lover all my life. Even being a makeup enthusiast, I can't imagine myself wearing a bold lip colour every single day.Also, nude lips compliment a bold eye look very well. So basic neutral MLBB kinda shades are a win-win in any scenario!!
My love for Lakme 9 to 5 Lipsticks isn't hidden. They are most comfortable and lasting mattes I've come across in the this price bracket. Hence,another addition to the family is Coffee Command!


Price/ Quantity : INR 450/ 3.6ml

Packaging:
 Coffee Command comes in Lakme 9 to 5's quintessential rose gold tube housed in a cardboard box. Their packaging is another reason apart from their formula and longevity that makes me want them more.

Shade:
Coffee Command is reeeelly reeeelly close to my natural lip colour. I mean there's nothing in my collection that matches my natural lips more than this particular shade.
Though the camera made it look more mauvy pink in the image above,I find it more on the peachy side. So, if you are looking for a peachy nude lipstick ,look no further. Also,since it comes out pretty pale on my NC 30ish skin tone, I can see it washing out complexions above NC 40. 

Texture:
Lakme 9 to 5, I repeat are the most comfortable matte lipsticks in this price range. It is velvet to apply and sets matte. It has no fragrance to bother our sensitive noses.

Pigmentation:
Talking about the pigmentation of pale nudes is a tricky thing to attempt. But like its other counterparts, Coffee Command even being a pale peachy nude is well pigmented..just that the shade is light enough and might ask for a reapplication after 4hours of wear time.

My Take:

If you like peachy nude lipsticks or if you are an eye makeup enthusiast then this is the shade and formula for you since I often like pairing up smokey eye with a peachy nude lip. It might wash you out if you are on the duskier and warmer shade of the spectrum.

UK Drugstore Beauty Haul

23.9.17 0 Comments
Heyaaaa..
THIS is a long pending post guys and given certain health issues,its been dragging for the longest now!!
So here's a quick one about what The Husband Man could lay his hands on, on his recent trip to the UK. He was given a long list of vanity and majority of the contents hailed from the drugstore only. Although he is reasonably good in finding products,THIS time he couldn't prove his mettle. I still won't blame, he worked hard but some of the stuff was OOS at boots and some brands were missing from superdrug. So here's all that I could get :


Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Ultra Blush Palette- I’ve been excited about this for long and since Makeup Revolution is a UK brand and everything is available at half the price than here, I made sure to get few stuff. 
 
• Makeup Revolution Salvation Palette in Dia de los Muertos – This palette had the perfect mix of neutrals and brights. I also like the varied textures of the eyeshadows in a single pallette. Can't wait to swatch these on!!! 
  • Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Fixing Spray- Not in the picture!! This is a first time purchase and I have no clue how the product fares. I will surely update on this!
  •  Makeup Revolution Amazing Volume Mascara- Again a first timer with this one and excited to try it on!

Sleek Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette in Light373 – Who doesn't like a multitasking product? It is such a bliss to carry one product while traveling that takes care of your contour, highlight and blush…TOTAL LOVE ❤️❤️ 
 
• Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Vamp - I actually asked for a much deeper shade of lipstick,something on the lines of ox-blood but men being men....meh!! But anyway,this is a gorgeous burgundy with terracotta undertones,just that it's not the one I asked for.
 
Freebies included:

  • Sleek i-divine Eyeshadow Palette in All Night Long - I got a sample size of this and trust me I'm loving the bonsai version.
  • Sleek Lip VIP lipstick in Show Off - A full size lipstick as a freebie is what a makeup lover loves. Already reviewed this gorgeousness....GO check it out if you haven't already.
  • Sleek Dip It Eyeliner in Black -  The basic black liquid eyeliner with that hard tip instead of an otherwise much loved brush.
 Lastly...
  •  Real Techniques Sponge - A third time purchase..this is my staple, can't do without this!
 That's All you guys!!
Have fun-filled festivities ahead!

Sleek Lip VIP Lipstick in SHOW OFF: Review, Price, Swatch and FOTD

1.9.17 2 Comments
Up with another lipstick and this time its the Sleek Lip VIP lipstick in the shade Show Off. Sleek is a well known UK brand that makes awesome products at affordable prices. Their eyeshadows and blushes are to die for. So if you like the lipstick shade in the picture above and want to know more about it..Read On!!!

Price/ Quantity: £5.49/3.6gm

Ingredients:
Packaging:
Sleek Lip VIP range of lipsticks come in a matte black square packaging with shiny Sleek written on it. The bottom end displays the colour..simple and practical. I find this and Faces Canada Moisture Rich lipsticks pretty identical in packaging. The sticker on the cap has the ingredient details.

Shade:

Before you read on, let me clear that the shade in the hand swatch is exactly what it looks like on me and somehow it looks a little faded in my pictures.
Show off is a a cool-toned deep brown with mauve/plum undertones (I know too many slashes,it's a difficult shade to explain). It's a beeeeaauuuuttiiifuul shade.Very classy..goes on a wide spectrum of skintones (probably on everyone)..and can be worn over any colour you're wearing.
And NO,it does not make you look older!!  
These days when I'm puzzled about which lip colour to wear, I gladly apply this on :)

 Texture:
 Sleek Lip VIP lipstick in the shade  glides onto the lips like a dream given their creamy formula. It soon settles to a semi-matte finish though with a sheen.Since I'm so over the drying mattes phase,I find this a refreshing change.
It is hydrating owing to the presence of ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and vitamin E.
Since it is creamy it's not surprising that it transfers to cups and spoons but that doesn't much affect its colour pay off.
I assume it might not able to survive the Indian heat thus refrigeration would be a good option.

Pigmentation:
 Show Off is well pigmented and takes care of any pigmentation that you have on your lips in one or two swipes.

My Take:


If you have read my earlier post on  my favourite purple lipstick you would know that I am already in the fall mood regarding the lip colours. Show Off only helps me stay in that deep shade mood a little longer. I love the mix of chocolate, plum and a hint of lavender in this shade and as much as the description sounds edible,the smell reconfirms it. It is densely pigmented and stays put for 4-5 hours depending what you eat.
 It smells of coconut and vanilla which to be honest is a bit over whelming initially to my sensitive nose but gradually fades away. I'm enjoying hydrated lips lately.

Maybelline Color Sensational Loaded Bolds In Fearless Purple 16: Review, Price and FOTD

19.8.17 12 Comments
Maybelline is one drugstore beauty brand that I totally love. It never fails to experiment and always remembers to fall in budget and to me these are two hugest clap-worthy qualities of a brand. 
While taking a stroll of my blog I realized that even though I love and use Maybelline products a lot, I haven't reviewed them much. So, here I am with a much loved Maybelline Loaded Bolds Lipstick in Fearless Purple..!! 
Brand Claims:

What it is

Achieve high-impact color in one saturated stroke with Maybelline's The Loaded Bolds lipstick. Hypercolor pigments and an opaque, creamy clay base deliver one-stroke intensity. The Loaded Bolds is available in a range of pigment-loaded shades from deep plums and electric blues to vibrant reds and natural nudes.

Benefits

1. Delivers high-impact color in one saturated stroke.
2. An opaque, creamy clay base deliver one-stroke intensity.
3. Dermatologist and allergy tested.

How to use/apply

STEP 1: Apply lipstick in the center of your upper lip and follow the contours of your mouth.
STEP 2: Glide the lipstick across the entire bottom lip
 
 Price/ Quantity: INR 575/3.9gm

Shades Available: 
  • Wickedly White
  • Berry Boss
  • Chocoholic
  • Dynamite Red
  • Fearless Purple (the one I have)
  • Fierce Fuchsia
  • Midnight Date
  • Raspberry Rendezvous
  • Smoking Red
  • Sunny Coral
  • Baby Pink
  • Audacious Blue
  • Black
  (There are other shades available at Amazon that haven't been launched in India and give MAC a run for its cost :P)
Ingredients: 
 
Packaging:

No ground-breaking is happening here. Maybelline Color Sensational Loaded Bolds come in a regular color sensational range packaging. Just that the bullet cap coordinates to the colour family of the shade (they could have atleast properly colour-coded it i.e. the exact shade and not the colour-family)
Also, the bullet in my case is totally detached from the very base. Nooo..not broken..just that the whole bullet comes out clean from the base....which indicates..its weak!

Shade: Fearless Purple

Well the shade is what it says "Fearless Purple".
The sad part is that the camera isn't picking up the exact colour. Its deeper, more cool toned and less bright than what it appears here. The shade is a true purple. I didn't notice any undertones,it is pretty no-nonsense beautiful purple. 
I would go on to say that it is hard to find this shade in drugstore brands. I did look for it earlier but all in vain!
The hush-hush beauty information is that Fearless Purple is a close dupe of Mac Heroine,since I don't own Heroine I can't claim it to be true!
Anyway, it will go well with all skintones equally.
SUPER LOVE the shade!!!

         Texture:
It is creamy to apply and feel..a dream..I know..!!
It settles to a matte finish but not the drying, stretchy,dehydrated matte but a rather luscious matte.
It transfers slightly initially but that doesn't hamper its intensity and finish. Even after settling to a matte finish, it does not accentuate the fine lies which is pretty uncommon for the matte lipsticks.

Pigmentation:
This is hell of a pigmented lipstick. LOADED and BOLD both. Loaded and jam packed with pigment. It is truly a one-swipe lipstick and takes care of any amount of pigmentation you have on the lips.

Staying Power:
Hell Yeahhhh..I was waiting for this. It stayed on me WHOLE DAY.. and saw me through breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh yess!! It just won't go.
Now if you hate lipsticks that stain..switch tab..this isn't for you!!!
Even after 9+ hours, Fearless Purple didn't wear off, infact I was still pretty presentable lips-wise :P
It stains really badly and you'll need help of removers and oils to get rid of it.

 Here's how it looks on me (though actually it comes out darker)



Over All Thoughts:
In love with the shade, texture and staying power!!
If you want to buy just one shade from the Maybelline Color Sensational Loaded Bolds range of lipsticks..buy FEARLESS PURPLE!

L.A Girl HD Pro Conceal Review!

5.8.17 0 Comments

What additional seasoning does to a dish, makeup does to a face- it enhances the beauty of a person. For every woman, makeup holds a different place. Some have made it an essential part of their outlook while some wear makeup to feel good about themselves, to experiment vividly and look perfect. Many use it primarily to get rid of those blemishes. We all know that women don’t wear makeup to impress anyone, they do this to please themselves only. The sole motive is to feel confident. No woman is ready to settle for the ordinary. Beauty is an essential aspect and to dazzle and brim with poise, women like to add a tint of sheen to their skin.
However, if makeup is not done right, it can go terribly wrong. There are techniques and uses of makeup. Women have to educate themselves in this arena and then work with it. The basic step that we usually tend to miss is a concealer. We complain about not getting the look right as we do not use a concealer and don’t end up with an effortless look. There are certain uses of a concealer. Like the word suggests, it conceals all the blemishes. It gives you a professional finish. It adds freshness to the skin and makes it glow. For women who are conscious of those acne marks left behind, a concealer should be your go-to essential and it works like a charm. The vanity case is certainly incomplete without a concealer.
Using a concealer has its perks, but using the right concealer is mandatory. There are different shades for different skin tones. The user has to identify their skin tone and then may be a professional can recommend the shade. Using one which is stark opposite to the skin tone might make the face look artificial and in contrast to the body tone. 

There are a plethora of concealers available. The customer will be ambiguous about which one to use. Here is a recommendation- LA girl HD pro conceal. 
This is a 4.5 star rated product. There are many shades available for different skin tones. Let’s see as to why this product is effective and highly recommended. 

PRICE-
Cost effective and value for money, this product is exactly what we are looking for. It is pocket friendly unlike the other ones, it works like a miracle for every skin tone. You can buy this without burning a hole in your pocket and you will not regret it, it’s a guarantee!
One can save Rs 89 by using the purplle coupons that are available. It is offering additional discounts and making life easier for all the women out there. Price will certainly not pose to be a problem now.
Get 15% off by purchasing it from purple.com. It’s a 100 percent genuine product and it qualifies for free delivery as well.

PACKAGING-
LA Girl’s HD Pro Conceal comes with a very handy and easy-to-use squeezable tube. It is spill proof and can be carried along easily in the handbag. The screw cap is obviously the key to the well packed product and makes it travel friendly. This product comes with a brush to use one need not worry about getting those hands dirty. Brush ensures cleanliness and it will definitely help to apply it smoothly and leave no creases on the skin. The quantity is just about right. It’s neither too small nor too big that it exhausts before expiration.

TEXTURE-
This concealer has a creamy, smooth formula. The consistency is medium or rare, it is neither thick nor does it have a watery base. The texture is velvety and sets well on the skin. The worst enemy- stickiness is also not a concern with this product. It is crease resistant and merges instantly with the skin. It is light weight and has no added fragrances. It is kept natural and possesses all the texture qualities that a concealer requires.

WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL? 
With the availability of 18 shades of this concealer, the customer has the liberty to choose from the array of shades according to her skin tone. They will not be limited by choice, rather spoilt for it. The variety includes porcelain, light ivory, classic ivory, cream beige, medium bisque, toast, warm honey, orange corrector and many more. Once the right shade has been chosen, it just has to be used wisely.  The coverage of the concealer is praiseworthy and doesn’t look cakey at all. The amount requirement is minimal. Just one drop to flawless skin!
It gives an even skin tone. Be it a blemish, a scar, blackheads, marks or anything that you want to fix, the concealer is the solution. The longevity is admirable. It can work for 7-8 hours straight without any budge on the skin. It’s a fine product which effectively hydrates the skin.
The semi matte HD finish is the icing. It veils all the dark circle and discoloration leaving an even tone. It blends with the skin easily. It does not highlight the dry areas or patches, it camouflages it. It has been proved most effective for dark circles. It lends freshness to the skin and rejuvenates it. We rarely find such concealers which provide a commendable coverage and blends so effortlessly.
The brush that comes along with it is super effective in giving a technical touch. It leaves the hands free and the brush is an aid for finesse. It gives a professional touch making you feel good about your looks.
It’s a miracle product for it works like a 3D product for the eye-shadow. This is a hack that should be followed. To enhance and highlight those eyelids, apply the concealer and set it well.
Concealers help correct the mistakes while applying lipsticks. If it extends out, it can easily be covered up and will save you from the embarrassment of an uneven tone. It augments the lip colour and helps with sharpening the edges.
It supplements contouring and brightening properties. It subtly blends with the skin tone but illuminates the face as well.

LA Girl’s PRO HD Concealer is a star product. The enriching qualities with a wise shade selection, it outshine the others. The product promises contouring, highlighting and natural ornamentation. It lends class and grace to the skin. The concealer has an excellent coverage quality and is highly cost effective and affordable. It tranquilizes and pacifies the skin, making it look effortless. The product is sure to impress all the customers out there. This is highly recommended and the customers who have used the product have reviews it positively and are certainly happy with it. Use the product with wisdom, choose the right shade and you will be enlightened and overwhelmed with it, it’s a promise!

Deepika Padukone INSPIRED Makeup Look!!

19.7.17 8 Comments
Inspired Looks are fun...be it watching or recreating myself. I would still maintain what I said in my Priyanka Chopra Inspired Look that watching transformation videos is probably my favourite leisure activity. I don't really know how far I do justice with the looks but the amount of love I received from you all for my Devasena Inspired Look of Bahubali and others keeps me going.

Deepika's Look
Coming to this picture of Deepika, ever since I came across it in Piku days I wanted to give it a try but something or the other kept emerging and the much wanted got delayed.
What I particularly liked about this look is that it is pretty much non-fussy..less-drama..true-to-me sort of a look. I love the sheer coverage of her foundation and the little imperfections of the skin showing through...gets real!! Her makeup artist has majorly played with her eyebrows and eyes only while keeping the rest muted. I also don't see much contour/highlight going on,though a subtle blush is visible for sure. The muted nude lips are the best choice for those heavily kohled eyes. 
The look gets enhanced by her beautiful deep red and black chanderi saree with that thin golden border. The chaandbaalis did full justice to her evening out/occasion look.

Products Used 
This is probably THE only look where I've used least amount of products. ( I hope you find them least since I use more than this for a regular occasion ;)
 Getting back to the products used:
Face:
Eyes: 
 Lips:
 How I Did!!

  • Since Deepika had a very basic and sheer makeup base, I skipped the primer and concealer and applied a very thin layer of foundation which was followed by the pressed powder just under the eyes and T-zone!
  • Its probably for the first time that I skipped contouring and highlighting rather just applied the blush with the lightest hand on the apples of my cheek.
  • I applied an orangey nude eyeshadow as the transition shade and a wash of matte black eyeshadow all over the lid. I applied the maybelline gel eyeliner giving it a slight wing and kohl in the waterline and tight-lined too. 
  • I skipped the falsies and just applies 2-3 coats of mascara.
  • For the lips, I first applies the lipstick and then topped it with the lip cream for a nude matte look.
  • Bindi, chaandbaali and saree in a similar hue completed the look.


Hope you guys like it!
Let me know in the comment box if you want me to do recreate a particular look :)

Sugar Matte As Hell Lip Crayon in Rose Dawson: Review,Price,Swatches and LOTD

17.7.17 8 Comments
The moment I heard of this shade name,I was wondering where have my ears gone through it earlier.. it was surely not new ! I never had a class mate with that name nor any teacher which could've been the possibility given the Irish School background and the Anglo Indian teachers.. but no! Time passed and the shade name "Rose Dawson" took a back seat and the other qualities of the lip crayon surfaced. This is my first experience with the brand Sugar Cosmetics and me being a 'natural looking lips' lover couldn't hold myself back in owning it. Their lipsticks and lip crayons are quite a hit along the makeup enthusiasts and why not when the world is going gaga over matte lips for the past few years now. 
Brand Claims:

Shades Available:

Packaging: 
 In the world of chubbier, plus size crayons , Sugar Matte As Hell lip Crayon comes as gym going toned version :D These are slimmer to their counterparts and truly speaking better to hold than those chunky ones. Another pros is that you hardly come across a lipstick/gloss/crayon that has its shade name printed on it rather than having a sticker placed at either end.
THIS makes it extra! It has a colour coded end.. life made easy!! The only thing we dislike is the need to be sharpened. This makes you carry a sharpener along with it wherever you travel, also leads to product wastage and we hate the hard earned money getting sharpened and trashed.

Shade: Rose Dawson
Coming back to the familiarity with the shade name, I paused and pondered and on one sleepless night it occurred to me that if Kate Winslet (Rose) of the epic movie Titanic had married Leonardio DiCaprio (Jack Dawson) she would've become Rose Dawson :D
Moment of Enlightenment!!!
Rose Dawson is a milky-rosy-pink with a hint of mauve and a great shade for everyday use. It would go along with any outfit and and colour. I like to pair it with a long and thick winged eyeliner or the cult Smokey eye but it would look beautiful just like that too.
Truth be told, I'm a fan of rosy mauvy pinks!!

Texture :
 Applying Sugar Matte As Hell Lip Crayon is a dream. It is super creamy to apply. No tugging pulling is involved like the regular mattes. It settles for a matte-as-hell finish. The formula doesn't dry out the lips which is a characteristic feature of matte lip products but you do feel that you have something on your lips. Being matte, it does accentuate the fine lines.. (exfoliate babe!!!) 
Although it applies creamy,it starts looking patchy and crumbly once it settles. I didn't particularly find any odour or taste in it and it transfers very slightly.
 
Pigmentation:
 It scores high in the pigmentation department and is good enough to cover any pigmentation that you have on your lips.

Staying Power:
Sugar Matte As Hell Lip Crayon in Rose Dawson stays put for good 5+ hours. Like with every lip product, it's longevity depends on what and how frequently you eat. Matte lipsticks and greasy food are enemies anyway.. you got the deal.. right? All in all I'm really impressed with its staying power not forgetting it's a pale shade to stay on for so long.

Over All Thoughts:
 Sugar Matte As Hell Lip Crayon in Rose Dawson applies smoothly, is highly pigmented, stays put for long and is a beautiful shade BUT it accentuates fine lines,appears patchy and needs sharpening! It looks stunning from a distance and in photographs but the closer you get the more uneven it comes across!

Rating:
3.5/5
