Makeup Revolution Redemption Acid Brights Palette : Review & Swatches

Hey everyone,

Today I am going to talk about another palette from Makeup Revolution London.This is my third palette from the brand and many more are in my wish list.These are very affordable and specially when on discount.The only reason to purchase this palette was the presence of purple,orange and berry toned magenta shades in the palette.Ever since the launch of Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette orange and magenta colors are so much in trend.As ABH palette is really expensive in India so I am always in search of palettes with similar colors. This palette has many neon shades which I am not going to use,some of you might use them but I am not courageous enough to wear such colors. Still I bought it because it was on discount and except 2 or 3 colors all colors can be used.

Price Rs 1200 .I got it for Rs 450 from an insta seller.

 

DSC03633DSC03626DSC03628My thoughts about Acid Bright Palette

The product comes in a sleek bar type palette. The brand name is printed in the front of the palette.The packaging is travel friendly and it has all the details and ingredients of the product at the back of the palette. It comes with a dual ended sponge tip applicator. It contains 12  eye shadows  both in matte and metallic finish. These eye shadows are perfect for creating  bold,bright and sultry smokey looks.  The eye shadows do not have any names.All shades are soft and smooth and can be easily worked on and blended. It is advisable to apply eye shadow primer for best colour payoff and prevent creasing. These shadows stay for 7 to 8 hours with primer and 4 to 5 hours without primer after which it starts to fade. These shadows have minimum fall outs and kick back.This palette is a very close dupe of Sleek Acid palette.The shimmers are very soft and pigmented however some matte colors are a bit chalky,but it can be make workable by layering on a few times.Purple is the least pigmented eye shadow as u can see in the swatches also.I have numbered the eyeshadows from left to right for the purpose of explaining.

  1. Berry toned magenta (matte)
  2. White (matte)
  3. Neon green (matte)
  4. Neon Orange (matte)
  5. Cobalt blue (shimmer)
  6. Aqua blue (shimmer)
  7. Pinky purple (matte)
  8. Khaki Gree (matte)
  9. Neon pink (matte)
  10. Neon green (matte)
  11. Silver Grey (shimmer)
  12. Black (matte)

Pros

  • Affordable and Travel friendly
  • Good for beginners
  • Easily blendable
  • Easily available
  • Shimmers are pretty

 

Cons 

  • Matte shades are a bit chalky
  • Staying power without primer is not good.

  • Contains parabens
  • No mirror

Rating – 4/5

Overall it is a great buy for beginners who want to play with bold bright colors.It is a nice palette for the price.The shadows are not top quality but not bad either.The shadows are blendable and workable.

 

Thank you for reading.

My experience with The Nature,s Co. Rosemary & Hibiscus  hair mask

It comes in a plastic tub with a green cap.The packaging is fuss free and good quality.The hair mask is brown in colour. It is very easy to make this hair mask.I usually mix it with water to make a paste and then apply it for 15 minutes.It can also be mixed with curd .It smells and look exactly like heena powder (Mahendi) but the weird part is  that it does not contain Heena powder.But the smell is not as strong as Heena powder,it vanishes as you wash the hair mask.The smell is not bothering to me at all.It is quite easy to rinse off the hair pack.My biggest doubt with this pack was that since it is powder based when it will dry,its gonna be tough to remove it but surprisingly it rinsed off pretty easily.I have used this mask many times and I find that it makes my hair smooth and more manageable.I cannot comment on its hair fall claim because I need to use it regularly to comment on such claims.But what I like about it is that it makes my hair shiny and smooth.If you have dull and frizzy hair,you can try this out.It will definitely give some shine and smoothness to the hair.It has so many beneficial ingredients and it is 100% organic so it is gonna benefit in some way or the other. Amla (Indian Gooseberry),Rosemary,Hibiscus are proved to be beneficial for hair in many ways.

DSC03566Here is my list of Pros and Cons of the product.

Pros

  1. 100% organic
  2. Beneficial Ingredients
  3. Easy to rinse
  4. Makes hair smooth and manageable.

Batistie Dry shampoo Fruity and cheeky cherry: Review

hey everyone,

Today I am going to talk about Batistie dry shampoo.Batistie is a UK brand it recently launched in India.It is my first ever dry shampoo and I am very excited to share it with you guys.There was no concept of dry shampoo in India couple of years ago.I remember Loreal Professionals dry shampoo on Ankita from Corallista,s blog.Then I came to know about dry shampoo.The concept is really helpful for girls who have oily scalp.It is a blessing for college going girls.

Lets start with the review .

Price : 299 for 30 grams.They come in different size variants.

My thoughts about the Batistie dry shampoo

Batistie is famous for their dry shampoos so I was pretty confident about the product.It comes in cylindrical tin spray bottle.All the ingredients and instructions are mentioned at the back of the bottle.The packaging is very chic and cute.It looks really pretty on my dressing table.These come in variety of fragrances I picked fruity and cheeky cherry.The fragrance is very fresh and fruity.The fragrance is not too strong to bother any one.I love the smell.It is very affordable and a little goes a long way.The spray works fine to dispense the product.I purchased the smaller size variant which is very travel friendly.You can carry it in your purse and use when you want to add extra omph to your tresses.It is instructed to spray 30 cms away from hair and rub it so that the product absorbs all the grease.I have used it many times and I was very amazed with the results.It instantly freshens up the hair and give it some volume and texture.It is great for girls who have thin hair.The product easily get absorbs and all the white powder is gone in a couple of seconds of rubbing.It is good for those who are not advised to wash their hairs often due to dandruff or other scalp problems.I think it is a great product and it is a must have in every girl’s stack.I do not find any con in terms of performance but I think availability is an issue.These are available online and offline in some selected cities.DSC03555

Rating :4.5/5

P.S – I will love to thanks and appreciate those who subscribe to my blog recently.I cannot express my gratitude towards you all in words.Loads of love

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal Brown : Review & Swatches

Hey everyone,

I love wearing brown kajal during day time and a brown kajal is staple in my vanity.I love how brown kajal defines eyes without making it too obvious.I am going to review Lakme eyeconic brown kajal. This is among those products which I have repurchsed. Indian market have a few brown kajals and it is a good affordable option.Lets begin with the review now.DSC03349

Price  Rs 250 for 0.35 grams.

Product description

  • 10 Hr.
  • No smudging.
  • Waterproof.
  • Dermatologically tested.

My thoughts about the product :

The kajal comes in a sleek black colored twist up pencil.The pencil and the cap both are black in color.It is travel friendly and very convenient to use.It is safe to carry it in purse.The cap perfectly fits the pencil.It comes in five different shades which is very impressive.It is cocoa brown kajal with a matte finish.It is very pigmented and smooth when applied.It works pretty well on both upper and lower lid.It does not smudge easily so if you want that smudged look, be quick.It is creamy and does not tug or pull on the lids.The staying power is good it stays for around 5 to 6 hours on the lower lashline and 3 to 4 hours on upper lid.It is waterproof.If you want to increase the longevity you can set it with a dark brown eye shadow.It is very affordable and easily available both online and offline.This is my second pencil, I love everything about it. Only con I think is that it does not live to the claim of 10 hours stay.I will definitely repurchase it once this gets over.

Rating :5/5DSC03348DSC03352

Overall,I really like this product and recommend everyone to buy it.

Thank you so much

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 .

20170630_140341

Review

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.

swatch when mixed together

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.

Please tell me in the comments section your queries,experiences or suggestions.

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!

20170527_141656

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 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.

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 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.

20170527_141312

Price : 6 $ I got it for 4$ Rs 258

20170527_14132520170527_141402

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

20170527_141436

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.

20170527_141540

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.

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,

Take care and lots of love.
