Hello beautiful girls,

I mentioned in my Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip review  that I grab some stuff from colourpop during their free international 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!

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 shad eand a  a must have shade from Coloupop.

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.

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 the cheapest 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 :

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.

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 Express.com 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 .

  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.
