Ali express makeup haul : Cheap and best

hello everybody

Today I am going to share with you all my experience with Ali express makeup and beauty products.Ali express is a popular Chinese website which deliver products world wide.This website always attract me to buy stuff from them and I have shopped quite a lot with them.I have purchased clothes and accessories for my lil one and makeup products for my self.The prices are always very low and they also sell great dupes for high end makeup like Huda beauty,Morphe,Stila and many more.They also have a huge variety of makeup brushes ,fake lashes and fake nails.Earlier Ali express use to sell duplicates of The Balm,Huda beauty products but now the website has changed a lot.The products available now look more like inspired not duplicate products.Ali express also some good brands like Beauty Glazed,Jess up brushes,Me-on etc.So lets see what I got and how I feel about them.

  1. Hengfang shimmer metal l liquid eyeshadow ( buy here ) – This is a liquid glitter eyeshadow .This product looks very similar to Stila Magnificent metals .These come in 5 different shades.I really like this. The shade which is a pinky brown color.The colour is stunning and the glitter particles are smooth and not gritty or chunky.It applies very easily and stays for a long period of time.I used this on my friend’s bridal makeup and it was looking gorgeous.It takes a minute to dry and then it is all set to rock.Highly recommended.img_20181107_1141214704035331033950208.jpgimg_20181107_114201.jpg
  2. GUSTALA 35 colors Eyeshadow palette ( buy here ) It looks exactly like Morphe 35 p palette.The colors are almost identical and these also come in 4 other variants.I love purple shadows so I was more drawn towards this one.I will say it was not packed properly so it came with two damaged pan but nevertheless it is a beautiful palette.I will review this palette soon.I have used it a few times and I will say it is worth the money.Some shadows are more pigmented than the others but all are blendable.img_20181107_114443.jpgIMG_20181107_114456
  3. YAS 4 pieces eye brush set ( Buy here ) It is set of four eyeshadow blending brushes.The brushes are very nice and soft.I am using these alot and they are performing really well.It has four different shapes of blending brushes for precise application and blend.It cost me around 100 rupess for 4 quality brushes.Highly recommend if you are not willing to throw your money on makeup brushes.img_20181107_113925.jpgimg_20181107_113903.jpg
  4. Empty magnetic Z palette – This is also a good product .The palette is good quality and appropriate for storing single shadows.It also come with magnetic stickers if the pan is not magnetic you can use the sticker and store.It comes in three different sizes.This one is showing out of stock right now.You can purchase any empty z palette from Ali express by reading customer reviews and ratings.img_20181107_114034.jpg
  5. Magnetic eyelashes ( Buy here )- Magnetic lashes application was a fail for me but this product is definately worth trying if you can apply magnetic lashes.It comes in a sturdy plastic box and the lashes are good quality.I cannot say about the magnets because I was not able to use these.It is an affordable option if you want to try magnetic lashes.img_20181107_113813.jpg
  6. 24 pieces French style acrylic nails ( Buy here) This is also very affordable and very good quality .It also comes with a glue and glue was fantastic.The glue was so hard to pull that it even scratches my natural nails.This is my first experience with fake nails so cannot comment on the glue provided with good brands .It is great for occasional purposes.The nails can be trimmed and filed to adjust length. 


  7. Y&W&F eyeliner brush ( Buy here ) It has two ends one is felt tip brush and other is normal eyeliner brush. The brush body is wooden .The tip is not very fine but still works fine to create a thin line.I have this for a year now but it still looks good. I purchased it for 0.89 USD.img_20181107_114720.jpg
  8. Pair of 5 fake eye lashes ( Buy here) I purchased these for 1.28 dollars .The seller has increased the prices a bit still it is a steal for 5 pair of lashes.The lashes are not plastic looking,they look very light and natural.It is excellent for dramatic or bridal makeup looks.It can be used multiple times if taken gentle care.It is also a must buy if you are starting with fake eye lashes.img_20181107_113822.jpg

So,these are the products which I purchased from Ali express and I think they are worth a try.If you are a beginner and cannot throw money on expensive makeup do give these a try.

NOTE -Some items may be out of stock or prices have increased .If you want to know some tips to shop on Ali express read this article

Hope you enjoy it

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer 20 Sand Sable : Review

Hey everybody ,

Today I am going to talk about the most raved concealer in the blogging community.I finished two pens of my Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting concealer and I thought I should try some other concealer. I ordered the Fit Me concealer and foundation recently. Maybelline Fit Me range is a huge hit in India as well as abroad so I had to try these out.Here are my thoughts about the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in the shade sand sable.

Price :Rs 525 for 6.8 ml .Buy here on discounted price

Product Claims : Skin looks perfected with this natural coverage concealer for zero flaws and blemishes.

It is available in the shades Light,Sand and Medium on Maybelline India’s website but recently it is launched in the shade Cafe on



Review Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Sand Sable

Maybelline Fit Me concealer comes in plastic transparent tube.The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.It comes with a doe foot applicator which makes the job of concealer easy peesy. All the details,price,expiry etc are mentioned on a sticker which I personally don’t like because if the sticker is peeled off you will left with no idea when the product is going to expire.The concealer is medium creamy consistency and blends easily.It is neither too thick nor thin.It is not like those concealers with whom you have to be quick other wise they start to set.It gives medium coverage and looks really natural on the skin.It never looked cakey or unnatural on the skin.I don’t have very oily skin so none of the concealers crease on me.It don’t even dry out my  already dry skin which I love I set it with some compact it never crease .It stays for about 6 to 8 hours on me with a couple of touch ups.Now coming to the shade sand sable ,it is a yellow toned beige sought of colour very good for highlighting for medium to fair skins Indians but if you have heavy under eye bags I will suggest to use an orange corrector or a high coverage concealer matching your skin tone or go with medium shade in Fit Me .I purchased it for highlighting purpose and it served the purpose really well.I am blessed with no major under eye issues so I can use it alone with foundation and it works well for me.

DSC03781DSC03782DSC03783                                                  Overall Thoughts

I think  it is good budget friendly concealer with decent amount of coverage but if you have heavy under eye circles it will not gonna cover that.It is available in shades to cater all skin tones.But if you have wrinkles and fine lines it can crease .The shade sand sable is a good highlighting concealer for Indians.It is nice option for beginners and young girls.

Sivanna Colors Cheek & Contour Palette 03 : Review & Swatches

Hey everyone,

How are you all? I am going to talk about Sivanna Colors cheek and contour palette. If you dont know about Sivanna Colors read here . I purchased it from an insta seller named charis enterprise,they have a lot of sivanna makeup.I like Sivanna makeup because they are quality and affordable .They have a large variety of makeup from eyeshadows to lipsticks,highlighters etc etc.I decided to purchase this product as it is good when you are on the go and dont want to carry different blush contour and compact.Lets quickly move on to the review.

Price :  Rs 360.







Review of Sivanna Colors Cheek and Contour Palette

The palette comes in a black cardboard packaging with a see through upper portion and the back portion has all the ingredients and details of company.The actual product is housed in sturdy black plastic case,it a transparent lid and at the back the shade number is written.It is travel friendly .It comes in four different shades.The palette has four pans two of them are blushers,one is contour and one is compact ,it is written glow on the pan but it is matte so I use it to set my under eye area and all the concealed areas. All the four shades are matte .I find that the contour shade is a little dark for me so make it workable I use a very light hand on the pan so that I get the least color.The blushes are matte pink and matte peach.All the colors are smooth and pigmented they are not chalky what so ever.They last for 6 hours on me which is decent amount of time.I wish that the highlight shade had some shimmers.The only drawback I think is that it does not have a proper highlight shade.The thing which I love about it is that it is travel friendly and one palette caters to the requirements of blush,contour and compact (for me) highlight for no one I think.


swatches from top to bottom

Rating : 4/5 ( one mark less for no good highlight )

Conclusion : I like this Sivanna cheek and contour  palette because it is affordable and decent quality.This is my first face palette and I highly recommend this to those who are on a budget or makeup lovers who love to test new makeup.But before buying see properly  that the contour shade is matching your skintone,enquire from seller thoroughly then only place order.

Makeup Revolution Blushing Hearts dupe Odbo Sweet Hearts 03 : Review & Swatches

Hello friends,

Today I am going to talk about a product which is a perfect dupe of Makeup Revolution Blushing hearts in terms of packaging and quality.I came to know about Odbo brand from Komal of My Happiness,she is an amazing you tuber.I watched her praising the brand so I thought I should also give it a try. Odbo is a Korean skincare and Cosmetics Company they have a variety of skincare and makeup products. I purchased it from a instagram seller Charis Enterprise,they have a lot of Sivanna and Odbo makeup .Charis Enterprise also sell on amazon. Read on more to know about the product.


Odbo Sweet Hearts

Price : Rs 340 .



It comes in a pink  heart shaped cardboard packaging with three stripes of colors which can be used as a highlighter or eyeshadow. The cover has a transparent lid so it is easy to locate if you have more than one in your kitty. All the details are mentioned at the back of the product but I cannot understand as it is written in korean langauge.I wish it was written in English. This highlighter is very smooth and pigmented.It is very fine milled and shimmers are not chunky.You  need only little amount of product for that glow.I use just the tip of the brush to highlight my face. It has three stripes of color pale gold,coral and orange.If mixed together you will get a beautiful peachy coral highlight.

single swipes of colors from top to bottom

In the swatches I have swatched the colors only once and it was just WOW .It lasts on my skin for 6 hours which is a decent amount of time.My favourite shade is the pale gold one it look so gorgeous on Indian skin tones.I picked up this shade because of this color only,it is so freaking beautiful.This shade is my current favourite highlighter I am obsessed with this one. The only drawback I find is that it is not travel friendly ,it might crumble easily if not kept with care.

Rating – 4.5/5

Conclusion – I really like the Odbo Blushing Hearts as it is affordable,smooth and pigmented.It is a worth try product if you are on a budget or just want to try brand or love the packaging (like me).I highly recommend this product.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips Bumble and Speed dial : Review & Swatches

Hello beautiful girls,

I mentioned in my Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip review  that I grab some stuff from colourpop during their free international shipping offer.I am a big fan of their Ultra matte lip and want to increase my collection so I purchased two more shades which is Bumble and Speed dial.You can read my Foxy mini set review here.Lets see how I find these babies.

Product Claims :

This thin and lightweight formula glides onto the lips leaving SUPER intense colour with a bold, ultra matte finish. It’s very long wearing and completely kiss proof!


Price : 6 USD .I got for 4 USD. Rs 258 each.

2017-05-27 14.31.35

Shades :

Bumble : It is the best seller of Colourpop and most loved shade also.It is described as warm rose .I find it a warm terracota shade with more red in it.t is a univerally flaterring shade and a  a must have shade from Colourpop.

Speed dial : It is described as deepened peach.It is a part of Colourpop’s Just peachy collection and it is darkest among all.I find is a beautiful and vibrant peach color.It will suit all skin tones pretty well.

20170527_14185220170527_1418342017-05-27 14.32.48

My thoughts about the product

These lipsticks come in white cardboard packaging with shade name written at the bottom.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.These are very pigmented and opaque.It is so light that you will forget that you are actually applying any thing .These settle to matte finish  after a second or two,so you have to be quick to correct mistakes,if any. Colorpop ultra matte is very much criticized among beauty bloggers for its drying and uncomfortable formula but I do not find these drying I think they have revised their formulation.These are super long wearing and transfer proof.They easily stays for about 6 to 8 hours.These do not crumble or fades from my lips.I do not find these drying but exfoliating and moisturising is a must for beautiful finish.Bumble is such a gorgeous shade that I want to wear it every single day.These survive meals but after very oily food touch up is a must.It is easy to reapply these lipsticks.These are super affordable after free shipping they are  among the cheap liquid lipstick that I own.However,with shipping it cost around 600 to 700 rupees.

Ratings  : 5/5

Conclusion : I love both the shades and formula is also very comfortable.I recommend both the shades.If you have not tried Colourpop yet what are you doing??Go grab some stuff .These are best and affordable liquid lipsticks in the market.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips Baracuda : Review & Swatches

Hello everyone,

Colourpop is celebrating its birthday month and if you follow Colourpop on their social media you must be knowing that the whole month they had amazing deals,new launches and free shipping.I also took advantage and ordered some stuff for myself too.They were having free International shipping and three liquid lipsticks for 12$ (original 18$).I went crazy and ordered some liquid lipsticks (reviews coming soon).I thought of trying their Ultra Satin formula so I ordered Baracuda from the range.Lets jump to the review quickly.

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 $ I got it for 4$ Rs 258


Shade : It is described as warm deepened rose.I find it plumy brown color.It will suit all complexions.It is a beautiful colour.


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.I found that the lipstick stain my lips badly and I used coconut oil to  wipe the colour completely.


Let us sum up the PROS and CONS :


  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.


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

Rating  5/5

Conclusion I am happy that I came to know about the free international shipping,it was like a dream come true lol. I love the formula of ultra satin lip and the color is also something new in my collection.I recommend you all to try Ultra Satin lips from Colourpop they have amazing colors.I planned to order Frick N frack but it was out of stock so I ordered this one.I am happy with Baracuda as well.My next purchase will be frick n frack definitely.

Thank you so much for reading,

Ali Express Shopping Tips and Guidelines

UntitledgHello everyone,

Today’s post was pending for so long ,I am sorry for the delay but its better to be late than never.I am going to share some tips and guidelines to shop on Ali express.Ali is the retail service made up of mostly small Chinese businesses offering products to international buyers.It is a part of Ali baba group which is the largest e commerce company in the world.Ali Express offers variety of products at very low price.The product ranges from electronics to clothing ,fashion and beauty.Ali express is a one stop destination for all products requirements.I came to know about Ali express two years back when I was searching some hair accessory  for my baby.I was very impressed with the product range and very low prices.Gradually I started visiting the site often and became familiar to shop on Ali express.I have ordered dozens of products  from Ali express,few of them arrived some never came.It is the most safe international website if you know how to shop .Following are some guidelines to shop on Ali Express :

  1. Understand what is Buyer Protection – Buyer protection feature make Ali Express the most safe place to shop online.It basically means that if your order did not arrive under a stipulated time you have the power to open the dispute and claim the refund.When you order something Ali Express retains the money until you receive the product and fully satisfied,only when they will release payment to the vendor.This motivates the seller to make genuine efforts to dispatch the product and the buyer also remains safe at the same time.It happens when the package take a longer time and the product has not arrived the buyer can claim full refund.Buyer can open a dispute when ever he wish and claim the money back.Ali
  2. Buy from top rated seller – Always buy from the seller who has good ratings and is selling on Ali Express since a long time.Ali Express allows its customers to review sellers on various basis such as item as described,delivery time,communication with sellers.Always check the ratings of the seller and then place the order.
    1. Number of orders – It is also important to see how many orders of the particular product has been taken by the seller.It gives you idea that the seller is established in selling the product.It means that there are more chances of a successful order.Untitled
  3. Do not order by looking at the photos – I have noticed that most sellers on Ali express have different picture on the display page and different picture in the description box.Do not order any product just by looking at the pictures,scroll down and read the complete description,features,specifications and original picture of the product and then make any decisionAli2
  4. Communicate with the seller – Ali Express has a message centre which allows the buyer to communicate with the seller . I always send message to seller enquiring about the size,quality and delivery mode.The sellers are responsive and clear the queries well. Some sellers also give tracking information when asked.So, always leave a message to the seller enquire about the shipping time and method .
  5. Untitled.pnghj
  6. Always read reviews by customers – I always read reviews from customers who have already purchased the product.Ali express have review with photo feature which allows the customer to post pictures of the product. I always check reviews with photos because it gives me an idea how the product actually looks.Do not buy from sellers who does not have any review.hhhhh
  7. Avoid free shipping for expensive items -Ali express has a free shipping policy and they ship via National Post which take a longer period of time and with no tracking feature.If you are ordering something expensive communicate with the seller first and then choose a faster delivery option.Do not order something fragile and expensive without communicating with the seller.
  8. Do not order anything which you want urgently –Ali Express send orders via National Post .National Post is the most economical and the slowest delivery option.So,avoid ordering something which you want in a short period of time.It usually take 30 to 40 days to arrive and there is no guarantee whether the item will arrive or not.
  9. Do not confirm receipt unless you are satisfied – Use the product thoroughly and make yourself satisfied with the product before confirming the receipt.If any problem occurs contact with the seller and sought out the issue.If the seller is not responding you can contact Ali Express customer representative and get your issue solved.
  10. Think twice before ordering super cheap product – Do not get attracted to very low priced product because on Ali Express different sellers sell same prodcut at different prices.So,if  product is super low there are high chances of low or below standard quality.

These are my tips to shop safely on Ali express.I never faced any problem in refund or placing order on Ali Express. It is  a safe shopping website but the  only drawback is slow shipping.I agree that some items never arrived but I got my money back.So,do not hesitate, shop on Ali express and enjoy good quality products at lowest price.

Thank you for reading Bye n Take care.
