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

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.

Let us sum up the PROS and CONS :

PROS

  1. Comfortable formula

  3. Very affordable( If you grab these on sale or free shipping offer)

Hey everyone,

I hope you all are good.Thank you for visiting to my little space .I am going to talk about very affordable coloured eyeliner from the brand Miss Claire.Miss Claire is available on Nykaa,Amazon,Habbana.com,local stores in Delhi and Mumbai and on Insta stores.I got mine from an insta store.I found that the prices of Miss Claire products are best on Insta Stores.Lets begin with the review.

 

Price :The prices vary from Rs 150 to 300  for 5 grams of product. Rs 150 Buy hereDSC04660DSC04661DSC04662

Shades : Available in 16 shades ,some shades are matte also.

DSC04664DSC04663

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.

DSC04665

Staying Power : I applied it twice and it stayed through out the function.I have to remove these after coming back.They are easy to remove as well.I wore it for 4 to 5 hours maximum.Never tested it more than 5 hours.The finish was same even after 5 hours of wear.

Shades : 16 is a gold glitter in transparent base.It has multi coloured fine glitter and it can be used as a topper on any shadow because of its clear base.

is a turquoise blue colour.Very vibrant it does not have any visible glitter but it is highly metallic and super gorgeous.

Matte X Full-coverage, SUPER matte lipstick (think liquid lip status) with a very unique, lightweight, and velvety feel.DSC04567DSC04568DSC04569DSC04570

My thoughts about Colourpop lippie stix Candy Paint

It comes in a white coloured retractable packaging.It has a white cap  and shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the lippie stix.I found lippie stix smaller than Ultra matte and satin lipsticks.The packaging is nice,light weight and travel friendly.The shade candy paint is described as true terracotta. The shade looked stunning on me and it will look great on Indians.It will suit all skin tones.The colour is suitable for everyday and office wear.The formula is velvet matte and light weight on lips.These are not as drying as ultra matte and it can cover dry patches but it is always a good idea to moisturise the lips.It is very pigmented and single swipe is enough to cover lip completely.However,they are not transfer proof.It is best for those who are not habitual of wearing liquid lipsticks but love the finish.It give same finish but with comfort and hydration.It stays for 4 to 5 hours and can survive light snacking.It fades evenly and it easy to reapply it.It is easy to remove these.

I really like the finish and the formula of the lippie stix.The price is also reasonable and the colour Candy Paint is a total win.The only drawback I found is the staying power and the fact that they cannot survive light meals.  I totally recommend these cuties.

Hope you enjoy the post.Lemme know your thoughts in the comments.

Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara Review & Demo

Hey everyone,

My current mascara was finished so I decided to buy a new one.After trying Maybelline and Lakme mascaras I decided to try another from Essence Cosmetics.Essence have a range of mascaras and they are very popular of them also.I grabbed this one from Nykaa. Essence is a very affordable brand with some amazing products.Lets get into the review and know how I found this one.

Price : Rs 299

DSC04067

Product Claims :

There is a fabulous addition to the family of lash princess mascaras in black with the new Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. The special, iconic shape of the fiber brush provides lashes with length and dramatic volume as well as a false-lash effect. Also, the packaging of the drama queen is decorated with a gorgeous evening dress ? this time in black-mint.

  • A False lash mascara for those perfect eye lashes.
  • Special, iconic shape of the fiber brush provides lashes with length and dramatic volume as well as a false-lash effect.
  • Intense black shade, Easy to use.DSC04068

DSC04075DSC04070My Thoughts about the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara 

The packaging of the mascara is very cute and adorable.It reminds me of those ancient roman statues we used to see in movies LOL,anyone feeling the same?It is a curvy black bottle with mint green design.The bottle was not sealed in way which was kinda weird .They should have covered it with a transparent plastic sheet atleast. The bottle is sturdy  and travel friendly.

DSC04071DSC04074

The wand is a conical shaped .It does the job of coating lashes really well.I do not find any difficulty in applying mascara to the lower lash with this wand.The mascara is not very heavy or clumpy on the lashes.It is good lengthening mascara.It gives you that spidery lashes.It is best to curl your lashes before applying for more curl .It makes the lashes thick and voluminous. I love the finish of the mascara,it certainly gives that falsh lash effect.The only drawback was that I found the mascara little dry which I fixed by adding some eye drops but it is not a good thing to find your new mascara drying.May be I got an old batch.The mascara is not water proof but it is not easy to take it off either.I used a little oil on cotton ball to remove it.I came out pretty easily with some oil.It stays for around 6 to 8 hours which is decent.

Overall ,I really like this mascara it makes my lashes  and voluminous and curly.I stays for a good amount of time and it is light weight.The wand is average nothing special but it did its job perfectly.I recommend this to those who love fluttery lashes.

Rating : 4/5

Tarte limited edition Overexposed Highlighter Set : Review & swatches

Hey everyone .

So,  recently Tarte was celebrating their birthday week and they offered free International shipping  for 24 hours. We get Tarte products just for double price in India so offers like these are my dreams,I never miss them.I was eyeing on their bronzer and highlighter duo travel kit but it was out of stock so I picked this one.It is  travel size set of their best seller amazonian clay highlighter in exposed and tartiest pro glow in shade exposed.I am in love with the mini sizes these days.They does not burn a hole in pocket and we get chance to try best selling expensive products.They look cute as well.So lets get into the review now.DSC04001DSC04003DSC04004

Price – I paid 1100 INR for the duo. 14 USD

Product details –

WHAT IT IS
A pretty pairing of a deluxe powder & liquid highlighter for a universally radiant nude glow.WHAT IT DOES
Allows you to customize your strobe from a subtle sheen to a high-wattage gleam. Whether you apply this travel set‘s best-selling Amazonian clay 12-hour highlighter & tarteist™ PRO glow liquid highlighter formulas separately or layer them together, your complexion will look healthy, hydrated & more luminous than holiday lights.Limited-edition set includes:

  • deluxe Amazonian clay 12-hour highlighter in exposed (nude)
  • travel-size tarteist™ PRO glow

My Thoughts about Tarte Amazonian Clay highlighter Exposed

Tarte amazonian clay blushes need no introduction everyone raves about it.Tarte amazonian clay highlighter comes in same packaging as the blushes.The travel size is also exactly same but it has no mirror.The packaging is nice and sturdy.The highlighter is very cream and smooth.It is not powdery at all.It has zero kick back which I love.The pigmentation is amazing .The shade exposed is  a  stunning champagne coloured highlighter.It looks very similar to my skin tone.The best part about this highlighter is that you can layer it for extra “glow” or sheer it down for natural “within glow”.The formula blends easily into the skin and it does not accentuate fine line an texture on the skin.It stays for 8 hours on my skin which is incredible.The only downside about this product is that it has  micro glitters ,glitters can be seen from very close but nothing too chunky .If you are afraid of glitters don’t buy it.

DSC04005DSC04007DSC04008DSC04009DSC04015

My thoughts about Tartiest Pro Glow Exposed

It comes in a squeeze plastic tube with a golden cap.The cream highlighter is same colour as the powder highlighter.It is champagne coloured cream highlighter.Only very little amount is required for perfect highlighting.It sets very quickly so needs to be blended quickly.It is best blended with fingers,the warmth of finger blends the highlighter into the skin.It has no glitter chunks,it has very pretty sheen to it which is pretty.It can be mixed with foundation however I have not mixed it with foundation yet.I will update if I used it with foundation.It stays for 6 to 8 hours.But the staying power can be increased by topping it with the powder highlighter.The combination of both products can definitely increase the staying power.

DSC04010DSC04011DSC04013

 

Overall,I am happy with the product and very excited about it.The set is amazing value for money.If you love natural looking highlights you can go for this.The pigmentation is incredible and staying power is decent.I love this set.

Ratings 4.5/5

P.S – I did not paid any customs for this.

Nykaa GLAMOReyes liquid eyeliner Enchanting forest : Review and swatches

Hello everyone,

 Today I am going to review latest launch from the house of Nykaa. This is my first ever Nykaa product. Nykaa’s launches are always  bang on because I think they have very good PR network.They have collaboration with top bloggers hence their launches always create a buzz in beauty market.I really love this colour and the price was pretty affordable .I love coloured liners but this will be my first liquid liner ever.I am kohl and gel liner kinda girl.It is available in various different shades and if I like this I might buy other shades such as plum and teal .Lets get into the review now.DSC03967DSC03968DSC03969DSC03970

Price : 299 .Buy here

Quick Overview

Well, hello glam eyes! A bold release that packs a punch of stunning color in just one swipe, Nykaa’s Glamoreyes Liquid Eyeliner is all you need to get the most fabulous eye look on. What’s great about this product is its melt, crack and run resistant properties. This refined liner glides perfectly across the lash line for a gorgeous fluid application, leaving you looking super sensational!

Nykaa Glamoreyes Liquid Eyeliner – 03 Enchanting Forest : Let your eyes work the magic with our Nykaa Glamoreyes Liquid Eyeliner in Enchanting Forest. This beautiful deep green hue is sure to take everyone’s breath away!

My thoughts on Nykaa Glamoreyes liquid eyeliner Enchanting forest

It comes in green coloured   matte plastic bottle with a long black cap.The packaging is neither luxe nor cheap ,it is average.It comes in a red colour outer cardboard with the brand name and details written on the box.The shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the bottle.The packaging is light weight and travel friendly.The brush of the eyeliner is very fine hence it is easy to make fine line with it.I am very bad at liquid eyeliners but I managed to draw a thin line,hence suitable for beginners also.The cap of the liner is very long so it is very convenient to hold and draw line or wing.The shade enchanting forest is a beautiful  green colour.The liner dries to a glossy finish and after it dries down it is smudge prove and long lasting.The liner dries after a couple of minutes.The shade enchanting forest is pigmented but two coats are needed to build and intensify the colour.I find the formula comfortable and does not irritate my eyes.The colour showed up on my medium skin beautifully but I heard some blogger with darker skin tones that the colour becomes too dark on their skin almost black after drying.Nykaa Glamoreyes liquid liners have  a great staying power of around 8 hours but I find that it is very easy to remove with water.I tried to wipe it off with baby oil but it does not come off easily .I find it is very convenient to remove the liner .

DSC03976DSC03975Overall ,I find it is a great affordable option for beginners and students who do not want to splurge on makeup.It is a fun way to beautify eyes for daily basis.The liner is pigmented,staying power is great and shades are stunning.I am very happy with my purchase .I am happy that any Indian brand comes up with amazing coloured liquid liners.Will recommend if you love coloured liners.

Here is a quick eye swatch .I applied no makeup or base on my eyelids
