Colourpop Ultra Glossy lip Moon Child : Review and swatches

hey everyone,

Today I am going to talk about Colourpop again but this time I will talk about their gloss formula.This is my first ultra gloss purchase from Colourpop.I have not purchased any gloss since a long time and glosses are making a comeback so I thought why not try this.It is a collab product by Kathleen Lights.She is my favourite and her collabs are always talk of the town.So without much rambling lets begins .

Product claims :

High shine gloss with medium-coverage, crème finish in a moisturizing and non-sticky, comfortable formula.

Stay wild in this pinky nude with gold glitter

 

 

Price : 6 USD .I got it for 550 plus shipping

My thoughts about Colourpop Ultra Gloss Moonchild

It comes in  a pale pink outer cardboard packaging .It has  stars printed all over the box which looks stunning.The actual product comes in a transparent bottle with golden cap with star printed at the neck of the bottle.It has kathleen’s name also written at the outer as well as inner packaging. Moonchild is pale pink gloss and it has golden specks of glitter.The shade is too pale for me if applied alone but with a nude lip liner underneath it works fine.It is a perfect nude for very fair to fair skin girls.Medium to deep skins can make it work by applying a nude liner of their choice.The formula is light weight and non sticky .The glitters are smooth and non gritty.The pigmentation is decent for a nude gloss.It stays for 2 hours or so then it needs to be reapplied.The staying power is decent as it is a gloss and touch ups the always needed.It is a beautiful nude for fair girls but I will not recommend it to Indian medium skin girls like me.

Overall I enjoy the formula of the gloss and it is a nice product to have.Kathleen nailed it with the colour ,formula and packaging.

Thanks for reading

Colourpop Ultra Satin Calypso :Review and swatches

Hey everyone.

Today I have another review for you all from Colourpop. Colourpop is my favourite brands currently.The quality ,price and diversity of product always attract me to try more and more from the brand.I love ultra matte and ultra satin liquid lipsticks very much,can’t get enough :).I purchased a bunch of products from colourpop. but today the topic of discussion is Ultra satin lips in the shade Calypso.Lets jump to the review.

DSC04683

 

Product Claims :

 A creamy, bold lipstick with a satin finish. This formula has the same high percentage of pigments as an Ultra Matte Lip but contains emollient ingredients for added moisture, keeping lips looking fresh and feeling super comfortable.

Though this lipstick is super long-wearing, it is not completely kiss-proof and does transfer.

Price : 6.50 USD

DSC04679

 

Shade : Calypso is a muted pink.It is a pinky nude for my skin.Perfect to be paired with smokey eyes or a natural look.It will look good on a variety of skintones.

DSC04681

Texture,finish and staying power : Ultra satin formula is liquid lipstick with a satin finish.The texture is neither too thick nor thin.The formula is very comfortable and does not feel drying at all.It transfer but the colour stays on lips for a long period of time.Transferring does not means that pigments are wiping off from the lips.It stays for 6 to 8 hours on my lips with less oily food.It survive snacks and drinks easily.It does not accentuate fine lines on lips.The formula is hydrating and luxurious.Those who are not habitual of wearing liquid lipsticks will love the formula because it feels like regular bullet lipstick.I like the formula and staying power is also quite decent.It does not stain my lips . I use coconut oil to  wipe the colour completely.

DSC04680

Let us sum up the PROS and CONS :

PROS

  1. Comfortable formula
  2. Decent staying power
  3. Very affordable( If you grab these on sale or free shipping offer)
  4. Beautiful shades
  5. Moisturising and does not accentuate fine line.

CONS

  1. It is not transfer proof
  2. Availabilty in India.

Ratings :5/5

I absolutely love the color and the formula .These stays for a long period of time so no need to reapply.I totally recommend this.

Stila Magnificent Metal Glitter eyeshadow : Kitten Karma

 

Hey ya,

I am obsessed with glitter these days.I love how they take a look to another level.My obsession for glitters begins with the Stila Magnificent glitters.I absolutely love them.I am also trying pressed glitter  these days.But this post is not about pressed glitter.This is about another shade from the Stila Magnificet Metals.Kitten karma is their popular shade so I have to get it any how.I purchased the mini version as it makes the product accessible and does not burn  a whole in the pocket.So lets begins with the review now.

DSC04671

Price: 24 Dollars for 4.5 ml. I got the mini version for 1100

 

Product Claims

This brilliantly long-wearing sparkle eye shadow combines the perfect mix of pearl and glitter to lavish eyes with incredible luster and shimmer.  With its uniquely lightweight, water-infused texture, Glitter & Glow glides on effortlessly, then dries down smoothly, locking in maximum sparkle with minimal fallout, for eyes with a real “wow!” factor.

How to Use

Apply one coat directly along the lash line and centre of the lid. Use your finger or a firm brush in a tapping motion to blend edges and set.  Wear alone or over eye shadow.

DSC04672

Packaging : It comes in a transparent  rectangular plastic bottle with a silver cap.The shade name is mentioned at the back of the bottle.It comes with  a wand which is good quality and makes the job even more easy.It is a light weight and travel friendly.

 

Texture : These are light weight and does not feel heavy on the lids .The glitters are not chunky at all.It dries quickly if applied in a thin coat but a heavy coat take much time to dry.The glitter does not went in to my eyes or irritate my eyes.These can be used as a glitter eyeliner as well.This shade is less glittery than diamond dust.DSC04673

Shade : kitten karma is a pinky champagne color with golden glitters.It comes in 11 beautiful shades.I instantly feel in love with the shade.It looks beautiful on eyes.It is the most popular shade of all the shades.

My thoughts about Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow liquid eye shadow

I really like the formula of the product, it is light weight and fuss free.No glitter glue is needed to wear it.I have seen You tubers wearing it alone without even using eye shadows. This product alone can give you glamorous eyes perfect for night out or party in minutes.I do not experience any major fall out from this if applied properly. I wore it for a marriage function and it stayed quite well for 6 hours on my lids without fading.It is pigmented and one or two coats are required for full glittery eyes.The applicator is so convenient that it makes the work even more easy. I got the mini one from their Written in Stars Holiday collection and I love that it is actually not very tiny it is a decent sized mini product.

DRAWBACKS????

Expensive and availability in India.

Note : Do not apply a heavy coat in one go .It will surely give full intense glitter but it is very difficult to dry.It also starts to flake off after some time.Apply in thin coats and set each coat with a brush .This way the shadow will stay on for long hour and it will have less fall out.

 

Overall thoughts

It is very unique product,great for those who have just started playing with glitters.The formula is amazing and the shades are to die for.It is loved and appreciated by beauty community and it surely deserves that.I am happy to have it.You can try this if you love glitters .

My thoughts about Miss Claire Pearl Eyeliner 

Packaging : It comes in a tiny transparent plastic bottle with a long cap with brush attached to the cap.The brush is fine and it is easy to apply a thin line with it.I love that cap is long enough to hold it properly.The bottle is light weight and travel friendly.There are no chances of bottle breaking or spilling while you are on the go.The shade name is mentioned on a sticker attached to the cap and colour code is mentioned at the bottom of the bottle.

 

Texture and finish : These liner are not glittery at all.They have a beautiful shine which looks even more stunning in artificial light.I think that is why they have named it pearl eyeliner .Actually I was expecting a glitter liner but I like this finish also.The texture is medium easy to spread.It dries out quickly.I feel a little burning sensation when it get inside my eyes  which goes away after some time but on the lids they are comfortable.

NYX wonder pencil Medium : Review and swatch

hey everyone,

Today I am going to review a unique product by NYX.It is called wonder pencil and it claims to be a multi purpose product.I purchased it as a nude liner but it claims to highlight and conceals also. My main motive to have it was because I wanted a nude liner for my waterline.Since there are only a few nude liners available in India.I decided to give this a try.DSC04145DSC04143

Price : Rs 600

Product Claims :Wonder Pencil…the essential pencil that fulfills all of your beauty desires. Conquer 3 critical make-up tasks with one product: CONCEAL flaws and blemishes with creamy precision; LINE your lips against lipstick bleeding and fading; and BRIGHTEN your eyes along the water line. Will wonders never cease? Not with the Wonder Pencil in your bag.

My thoughts about NYX wonder pencil Medium

Nyx wonder pencil comes in wooden body which needs to be sharped.It has a black cap.The packaging is light weight but sharpening is always as issue as a lot of product is wasted.It does not comes with a sharpener but it can be sharped with standard lip liner pencil sharpener.These pencils come in three shades ,light,medium and dark.Medium was a good choice for Indian skin tone.It is a creamy beige colour with a matte finish.It brightens and opens up my eyes pretty nicely.I love it to use as a brow bone highlight.I have never used it as a concealer because  it will not suit my skin tone.It is too light to be used as s concealer for me.The texture is smooth and buildable.It needs one or two swipes to show up on my waterlines.I am happy with the shade and pigmentation.It stays for around 4 to 5 hours which is not phenomenal but  decent.It does not irritate my eyes. Maybelline also has a gel liner in nude but I find that too pink for us Indians.PAC also recently launched a nude liner which is half the price of Maybelline and NYX.If you think it is too costly you can get the PAC one.DSC04655DSC04656DSC04659DSC04658

I do not think any drawback expect the sharpner and I wish the staying power was a bit more.I am pretty satisfied with this as nude liner.If you are searching for a nude liner you can go for it.

Colourpop Gone wishing mini size kit review

hey everyone,
Today I have another lip product review .It is again from Colourpop.I have quite a few colourpop shades and I absolutely love Colourpop’s liquid lipsticks.They always keep launching new stuff.So,this kit was on sale so it grabbed my attention.It has all brand new shades from their collection.I could not resist myself and ordered this one.Read on more to know more about the product.
DSC04650DSC04651
Product claims :

This Mini Ultra Matte Lip Kit will keep your look so fresh for the season. Including brand new mattes from our Holiday launch, and two exclusive shades to the kit: First Position and Needle & Thread, there’s a kiss-proof lip for any occasion!

 DSC04624

Price :18 USD
Shades :
Souffle : A vibrant berry color.Very similar to more better but slightly lighter
Take a pixie : A dusty beige.Beautiful warm nude.Love it
First position : A true red
Needle & Thread : A toned down pink
Arabesque : A deep maroon
DSC04626.JPG
My thoughts about the product :

It comes in a purple cardboard packaging.Lipsticks are packed in a transparent bottle with a silver cap.The doe foot applicator is perfect for easy and smooth application. The formula is light weight and applies like a dream.It is so light that you will forget that you are actually applying any thing . Colourpop ultra matte are improving day by day.They have fixed their formula .It is more comfortable.These are super long wearing and transfer proof.They easily stays for about 6 to 8 hours . I always choose these lippies for a wedding or some event where I dont want to reapply my lipstick every now and then.I think the mini set has all the shades from nude to deep maroon ,red and pink.I love the colour take a pixie and souffle.They will look beautiful on all skin tone.Arabesque is  a perfect fall colour.It is very important to moisturise and exfoliate lips before applying these as they can accentuate flaked lips and look ugly.

DSC04653
From Lto R souffle,needle and thread,take a pixie,arabesque and first position

 

The only downside of the product is that it can not be reapplied easily.You have to wipe off completely to reapply the color.This is not a problem because  it rarely needs reapplication.Some of you may find the mini size too small.But it is fine to keep them for special occasion.It is better to have small size than a full size which will take forever to finish and also expires.

 

Rating 4.5/5
I really enjoy the kits .The new shades are interesting and beautiful to play with.I highly recommend this kit.You can grab it during sale for extra savings.
Thanks for reading.
