Hey everyone,

Makeup Revolution London always comes up with exciting stuff now and then.The quality is amazing ,the prices are affordable.But in India this brand is overly priced.Why makeup is so expensive in India??So,one of my brother was going to London so I requested him to get me some makeup revolution stuff from super drugs.I have more reviews lined up of the products which I got from London.This palette is a collaboration between Soph and makeup revolution.She is a you tuber and a part of makeup revolution team.This palette is not launched in India yet.She also released a highlighter palette but I never purchase highlighter palettes so I pass on that one.Read on to know more about the palette.


Product Claims:

Pigmentation and staying power – All shades are decently pigmented .The mattes are soft and they blend nicely.The shimmers are beautiful and they look pretty on the eyes as well.I will not say these are the best eye shadows in the world but they good enough for the price.But I find Colour pop shadow more creamy and smooth .These do not have crazy fall out.The staying power is decent 6 to 8 hours which is good.DSC04603DSC04614

Shades : There are 10 shimmer and 14 matte eye shadows in the palette.The palette has wide range of colours from browns,orange,reds,peach ,pinks,dark browns and black.The shades are arranged very wisely.I really love the shade selection and numerous looks can be created using this palette.The shades are explained below:

Third row Lto R
Last row L to R

My Final Thoughts

I think it is a great palette if you if you love to create different eye looks.The colours are very diverse and quality is also decent.I hope they launch it in India soon.Soph’s highlighter palette is launched in India recently.I think it is good palette to have if you want to have one palette still want all sort of shades.I do not  find any major issue with the palette so I am happy with it.

Colourpop Lippie stix Candy paint : Review & swatches

Hey everybody,

Today I am going to share with you all my though about Colourpop lippie stix. I absolutely love Colourpop and they are affordable too.So,Colourpop launched some new shades in their lippie stix range.They launched 10 brand new shades and I grab two shades.This is the first time I  tryied lippie stix from the Colourpop.Lippie stix comes in various finishes as a matte lip lover,I grabbed candy paint which is a matteX .Read on to know my thoughts about it.

Price : 5.50 $.Colourpop increased their price to 0.5 $


Product claims :

Get one swipe pigmentation in a full-coverage, ultra matte finish in a comfortable formula loaded with skin-loving ingredients like shea butter and Vitamin E.

Lippie Stix Formula contains Vitamin E, Mango, Avocado, and Shea butter for added comfort and moisture. None of our Lippie formulas contain any nasty ingredients like Parabens or Sulfates.

Matte X Full-coverage, SUPER matte lipstick (think liquid lip status) with a very unique, lightweight, and velvety feel.DSC04567DSC04568DSC04569DSC04570

My thoughts about Colourpop lippie stix Candy Paint

It comes in a white coloured retractable packaging.It has a white cap  and shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the lippie stix.I found lippie stix smaller than Ultra matte and satin lipsticks.The packaging is nice,light weight and travel friendly.The shade candy paint is described as true terracotta. The shade looked stunning on me and it will look great on Indians.It will suit all skin tones.The colour is suitable for everyday and office wear.The formula is velvet matte and light weight on lips.These are not as drying as ultra matte and it can cover dry patches but it is always a good idea to moisturise the lips.It is very pigmented and single swipe is enough to cover lip completely.However,they are not transfer proof.It is best for those who are not habitual of wearing liquid lipsticks but love the finish.It give same finish but with comfort and hydration.It stays for 4 to 5 hours and can survive light snacking.It fades evenly and it easy to reapply it.It is easy to remove these.

single swipe in day light

I really like the finish and the formula of the lippie stix.The price is also reasonable and the colour Candy Paint is a total win.The only drawback I found is the staying power and the fact that they cannot survive light meals.  I totally recommend these cuties.

Hope you enjoy the post.Lemme know your thoughts in the comments.

Thank you,

Colourpop Supernova eyeshadow review and comparison with Stila magnificent metals eyeshadow

Hello girlies,

Colourpop is the hottest makeup brand these days with constant new launches and amazing offers Colourpop has become everyones’s new favourite.So recently Colourpop launched their liquid eyeshadows called supernova liquid eyeshadows in five different shades.These are Colourpop’s first liquid eyeshadows and priced 7 USD. Since they are launched they constantly compared to  very famous Stila magnificent metals glitter and glow liquid eyeshadows.I picked one shade immediately on the day of their launch and I received it a couple of days ago.Lets see is it a Stila dupe? Read on to know more

Price – 7 USD .I got it for  650 INRDSC04129DSC04131DSC04132DSC04133DSC04134

Product claims :

We somehow bottled up high shine liquid metal, loaded it with glitter, and created an actual supernova for your eyes. This water-infused, super longwearing liquid shadow is extremely versatile and can work for so many looks, whether you want an all over base color, a touch of glitter, or extreme metallic foil. This high coverage and high impact shadow will send you into hyperspace….no fall out included.

These high-impact ultra-glittery shadows have a metallic base, are extremely long-wearing, and can be used as a base, alone, or as a topper

Packaging : The outer box is a cardboard packaging and the shadows are packed in same plastic transparent bottle like their liquid lipsticks.It has a flat soft wand to apply directly on the lids.The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly .DSC04135

DSC04138Shade : It is launched in five shades and I got the shade Walk of fame.Walk of fame is a gold liquid eye shadow with some silver glitter flecks.The colour is stunning and can be used by all skin tones really well.It can be used as an eyeliner,shadow topper or alone as a shadow.


Texture and Pigmentation: These liquid shadows are neither too thick nor thin.It has the right consistency so that it can spread very easily on the lids.I dries in a minute or so and does not crease or transfer once set.I found the shade walk of shade a little patchy if applied with the wand but it works pretty fine with a brush or finger.Colourpop suggest to apply it with a flat synthetic brush for opaque pigmentation.It looks beautifuk as a shadow alone or as a shadow topper.It adds so much glamour to the eye look if applied as a topper.It is a multi functional product.There is no glitter fall out once they are dried.

Staying power – It stayed for 8 hours on my lid which is amazing.It had no gliiter fallout when I touched it with my fingers.They can be removed easily with water so they are not water proof but it is a long staying product.

Comparison with Stila Magnificent metals glitter and glow liquid eyeshadow

These shadows are very much compared with Stila magnificent metals .I will say that it is a not a perfect stila dupe.Stila shadows are more glittery ,they packed with tons of chunky glitters .They are liquid glitter eyeshadows but colurpop ones have a foiled finish.It does not have tons of glitters.Glitters in Colourpop supernova shadows are fine and less as compared to Stila.The idea is of a liquid eyeshadow is same but the texture of the product is completely different as you can tell by looking at the swatches.  Colourpop supernova dries quickly as compared to Stila.The staying power is almost similar.

So,I would like to say it is not a exact Stila dupe.Stila is a glitter liquid shadow but Colourpop Supernova has a foiled high shine effect with less glitters.

Stila magnificent in diamond dust ( L) and Colourpop supernova in Walk of fame (R)

Overall,my final thoughts about this product is that it is an excellent product with an affordable price.I hope they launch more shades in it.I am eyeing on some other shades like firecracker and hard to empress and will grab them soon.

Please comment and share your thoughts and queries .Please subscribe to my blog if you like the post it would means a lot to me.

Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara Review & Demo

Hey everyone,

My current mascara was finished so I decided to buy a new one.After trying Maybelline and Lakme mascaras I decided to try another from Essence Cosmetics.Essence have a range of mascaras and they are very popular of them also.I grabbed this one from Nykaa. Essence is a very affordable brand with some amazing products.Lets get into the review and know how I found this one.

Price : Rs 299


Product Claims :

There is a fabulous addition to the family of lash princess mascaras in black with the new Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. The special, iconic shape of the fiber brush provides lashes with length and dramatic volume as well as a false-lash effect. Also, the packaging of the drama queen is decorated with a gorgeous evening dress ? this time in black-mint.

  • A False lash mascara for those perfect eye lashes.
  • Special, iconic shape of the fiber brush provides lashes with length and dramatic volume as well as a false-lash effect.
  • Intense black shade, Easy to use.DSC04068

DSC04075DSC04070My Thoughts about the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara 

The packaging of the mascara is very cute and adorable.It reminds me of those ancient roman statues we used to see in movies LOL,anyone feeling the same?It is a curvy black bottle with mint green design.The bottle was not sealed in way which was kinda weird .They should have covered it with a transparent plastic sheet atleast. The bottle is sturdy  and travel friendly.


The wand is a conical shaped .It does the job of coating lashes really well.I do not find any difficulty in applying mascara to the lower lash with this wand.The mascara is not very heavy or clumpy on the lashes.It is good lengthening mascara.It gives you that spidery lashes.It is best to curl your lashes before applying for more curl .It makes the lashes thick and voluminous. I love the finish of the mascara,it certainly gives that falsh lash effect.The only drawback was that I found the mascara little dry which I fixed by adding some eye drops but it is not a good thing to find your new mascara drying.May be I got an old batch.The mascara is not water proof but it is not easy to take it off either.I used a little oil on cotton ball to remove it.I came out pretty easily with some oil.It stays for around 6 to 8 hours which is decent.

Overall ,I really like this mascara it makes my lashes  and voluminous and curly.I stays for a good amount of time and it is light weight.The wand is average nothing special but it did its job perfectly.I recommend this to those who love fluttery lashes.

Hello beautiful people,

Today I am going to review a face palette from the brand The Balm Cosmetics.I always wanted to try some products from The Balm since it is an expensive brand in India I never got an opportunity to try them.Mary lou manizer and bahama mama bronzer are cult favourites among beauty lovers and were in my wish list for a long time.Recently the balm was having 50% off sitewide so I thought it is the best time to grab some stuff.This  palette grabbed my attention .It has all the best seller face makeup products from the brand.I loved the idea so much that I immediately ordered one from an instagram seller.

DSC04059DSC04060Product Details:

Limitless looks await with everything you need “In theBalm of Your Hand”!DSC04061

Price : 32 dollars  .I paid Rs 1600 + 100 shipping to an insta store.

My Thoughts about In the Balm of your hands Greatest Hits Vol 2 Palette

Packaging – It comes in a sturdy white cardboard packaging with a collage picture of all the balm face products in their original packaging.The outer cover is also same as the original palette.At the back of the palette the details and names of the products are mentioned.It has clear  big mirror which is a bonus.Overall I found the packaging very unique and travel friendly.

Pigmentation and Texture – All the shades are very pigmented.A little goes a long way with all the products.The blushes are smooth and buttery .They blend beautifully into the skin.Blushes from The balm are very popular because of their amazing quality and blendablity. I did not find them chalky or patchy.Even the darker colours performed very well.They are not too powdery so there is very less kickback.

Shades : It has all the mini sizes from different balm eyesadows,blushes and bronzer.It has:

matte reed “from the balm meet matt(e) trimony palette – It is dark matte brown.Very pigmented and smooth.

“firm” from nude tude palette – It is  a shimmery  dusty bronze colour.A beautiful all over the lid colour.

Tarte limited edition Overexposed Highlighter Set : Review & swatches

Hey everyone .

So,  recently Tarte was celebrating their birthday week and they offered free International shipping  for 24 hours. We get Tarte products just for double price in India so offers like these are my dreams,I never miss them.I was eyeing on their bronzer and highlighter duo travel kit but it was out of stock so I picked this one.It is  travel size set of their best seller amazonian clay highlighter in exposed and tartiest pro glow in shade exposed.I am in love with the mini sizes these days.They does not burn a hole in pocket and we get chance to try best selling expensive products.They look cute as well.So lets get into the review now.DSC04001DSC04003DSC04004

Price – I paid 1100 INR for the duo. 14 USD

Product details –

A pretty pairing of a deluxe powder & liquid highlighter for a universally radiant nude glow.WHAT IT DOES
Allows you to customize your strobe from a subtle sheen to a high-wattage gleam. Whether you apply this travel set‘s best-selling Amazonian clay 12-hour highlighter & tarteist™ PRO glow liquid highlighter formulas separately or layer them together, your complexion will look healthy, hydrated & more luminous than holiday lights.Limited-edition set includes:

  • deluxe Amazonian clay 12-hour highlighter in exposed (nude)
  • travel-size tarteist™ PRO glow

My Thoughts about Tarte Amazonian Clay highlighter Exposed

Tarte amazonian clay blushes need no introduction everyone raves about it.Tarte amazonian clay highlighter comes in same packaging as the blushes.The travel size is also exactly same but it has no mirror.The packaging is nice and sturdy.The highlighter is very cream and smooth.It is not powdery at all.It has zero kick back which I love.The pigmentation is amazing .The shade exposed is  a  stunning champagne coloured highlighter.It looks very similar to my skin tone.The best part about this highlighter is that you can layer it for extra “glow” or sheer it down for natural “within glow”.The formula blends easily into the skin and it does not accentuate fine line an texture on the skin.It stays for 8 hours on my skin which is incredible.The only downside about this product is that it has  micro glitters ,glitters can be seen from very close but nothing too chunky .If you are afraid of glitters don’t buy it.


My thoughts about Tartiest Pro Glow Exposed

It comes in a squeeze plastic tube with a golden cap.The cream highlighter is same colour as the powder highlighter.It is champagne coloured cream highlighter.Only very little amount is required for perfect highlighting.It sets very quickly so needs to be blended quickly.It is best blended with fingers,the warmth of finger blends the highlighter into the skin.It has no glitter chunks,it has very pretty sheen to it which is pretty.It can be mixed with foundation however I have not mixed it with foundation yet.I will update if I used it with foundation.It stays for 6 to 8 hours.But the staying power can be increased by topping it with the powder highlighter.The combination of both products can definitely increase the staying power.



Overall,I am happy with the product and very excited about it.The set is amazing value for money.If you love natural looking highlights you can go for this.The pigmentation is incredible and staying power is decent.I love this set.


Ratings 4.5/5

P.S – I did not paid any customs for this.
