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 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 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

  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.

My experience with Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 palette

The palette comes in a rectangular plastic packaging with a transparent lid.All the ingredients and details are mentioned at the back of the palette.It comes with a sponge tip applicator and shades are nameless.The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.However,the transparent lid is prone to scratches which look ugly after some time.

The texture of the shadows are soft and blendable . These have minimum fallouts and are easy to work with.The matte shades are also soft and not at all chalky shimmery and satin shades are also good quality.It is a beautiful neutral eyeshadow palette with rosy and plum tones.The color selection is very pretty and suitable for fair and medium skin tones.It is a decent palette with good color payoff and staying power.They stay for around 4 to 5 hours without primer.These shadows do not crease or fade easily.

You can create numerous look with the palette.It has browns and pinks as dominating shades,so both neutral and dramatic looks can be created.I have used it so many times and it never disappoints me.Some shimmery shades have less color pay off but can be fix by using a wet brush or fingers.The quality is not at par with the UD naked  3 palette but it is decent palette especially if you are on a budget.The color selection is so unique and beautiful that I often reach for this palette.I have created some smokey sultry looks as well with the palette.

Sivanna Colors Eyeshadow palette – Brown swatches and review

Hello everyone,

Today I am going to talk about Sivanna Colors eyeshadow palette in Brown. Sivanna Colors is  a Thailand based cosmetics company.The products are very affordable and good quality.These became very popular in India because of their good quality,low price and vast product range.My brown eyeshadow was finished and I was looking for a brown eyeshadow.I came to know about this one and ordered immediately from an insta store.Read on to know more about the palette.

20170423_161844

Price Rs 300 (it varies from where you buy) Buy here 

 My thoughts about Sivanna Colors Brown eyeshadow palette

I am very impressed with the palette.The texture of the shadows are smooth and blend able. It comes with six eye shadows with mixture of matte,shimmer and satin.It comes in a sturdy transparent plastic packaging.The packaging is cute and tiny,palm sized.All the details are mentioned on the back side of the palette.It is travel friendly.It comes with a dual sponge tip applicator which is useless.

20170423_161853

The shades are pigmented and smooth,even matte shades have great color payoff but they have a lot of fall outs.I think mostly smooth eyeshadows have fall out.Fallouts can be wiped easily with a piece of cloth.The shimmers are absolutely stunning.This palette can be used to create neutral as well as smokey looks .A makeup lover’s eyeshadow collection is incomplete without some nice matte browns and it is perfect brown palette.The staying power is about 4 to 5 hours without a primer.These do not fade or crease  on the lids.The colors of the palette will suit fair to medium skin tones quite well but very dark skinned may not find it useful.The colors can be used to create numerous look.Only drawback is that the quantity given is very little for the price,I wish pans were little bigger.20170423_162131

20170423_161953.jpg

20170423_162028.jpgThe shades are not named so for the purpose of explaining I have numbered them from left to right.

  1. Matte Dark brown
  2. Satin peach
  3. Taupy brown ( great for filling brows)
  4. Matte dark brown ( similar to first one)
  5. Light brown color (Contour shade for me as well)
  6. Shimmery chocolate shade
20170423_162651.jpg
swatches L to R

Rating 4.5/5

It is a must have palette in my opinion if you are building your eyeshadow collection.It is budget friendly and good quality.Even if you are not much into eye makeup and prefer bold lips,this palette can be very useful.It is an essential in my vanity and I happy that I purchased it.I have created both neutral and shimmery party looks with the palette .

I hope you enjoy the post.

Did you try Sivanna colors?Which brown eyeshadow do you use more often?Let me know in the comments section below:

B H Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette – Review and Swatches

Hi everyone,

You tubers collaborating with different brands is the latest trend these days.Our favourite you tubers are coming up with different palettes now an then.However,this trend has not arrived in India yet.So,when I came to know about Carli Bybel palette by B H cosmetics I did a research and got intrigued to buy it.When B H cosmetics launched this palette ,their website crashed and no one was able to place the order .It is pretty affordable and best seller palette of B H Cosmetics. However,Carli  has launched deluxe version of her palette but I came to know about it when I ordered this one.The deluxe palette is much bigger has some new shades of highlighter and eyeshadow including some shades from previous version.The original Carli Bybel palette is discontinued now and only deluxe version is available on B H cosmetic’s website.

Product Claims :

Beauty expert and YouTube sensation Carli Bybel designed this versatile 14 Color Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette to dial up the drama and add excitement to your look. Carli’s taste for chic refinement and modern elegance inspired her to select a collection of earthy neutrals and plummy brown shades with four face highlighters that complement every skin tone. The mix of mattes and shimmers make it easy to go from amped-up evening intensity to toned-down daytime options.

Price: 14.52 dollars .I paid Rs 1452 including shipping for the palette.I ordered from  B H Cosmetics website.

Packaging : It comes in a white color sleek cardboard packaging and a big mirror.”Aspire to Inspire” is written below the mirror,Carli always mention this quote in the beginning of her videos.It is the most beautiful palette I have ever seen.I love this unique white color palette.This is a refreshing change from normal black or transparent packaging.It has a cute cushion and pearl design on front.At the back all the details and description of the product is mentioned. It has magnetic closure and it is a travel friendly palette.This was my first International order and I was a little afraid of customs charges but I did not paid any thing of that sort.The palette arrived in 10 days which is super fast.
