Jeffree Star liquid velour lipstick Gemini : Review & swatches

Hey everyone,

Today I am going to review Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Gemini.I got the mini version from the nudes bundle.For those who do not know Jeffree recently launched mini nude bundle.In which there are mini version of all his nude velour lipstick.Some insta stores are selling the singles from the bundle so I also grab one.I wanted Andgrogny but it was sold out so I went for Gemini.A full size Jeffree Star velour lipstick is for 18 dollars (Rs 1800 in India).I find minis are a good idea to try an expensive product for me as I do not wear makeup on daily basis.I heard so many good things about these lipstick so lets see how I find it.

mini_bundle_open_3_1024x1024
Mini nudes bundle by Jefree Star

 Price: I got the mini for 599 with shipping .It has 1.93 ml of product.
Product claims:

Gemini’s are extremely independent. They will not be pinned down by anyone or any rules. They need to experience the world on their own. Inspired by Jeffree’s best friend who is a Gemini, this terra-cotta warm-toned nude is the perfect finish to any makeup look!

Our liquid lipstick goes on opaque, dries completely matte and stays on for hours! This product is 100% vegan & cruelty-free! (tips before use: exfoliate with lip scrub then apply to bare lips! Avoid food with oil… and no making out, kisses are ok!)

Also: Paraben & Gluten-Free

My thoughts about Jefree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick Gemini

The mini Jeffree star Velour lipstick looks so cute it is the same packaging as his full sized Velour lipsticks.It has a transparent body and a pink cap with stars printed all over.The packaging looks sturdy and travel friendly.It has a screw type closure and it gets locked with a  sound . The applicator is very soft and it is easy to apply liquid lipstick with it.The consistency of the lipstick is neither thick nor thin.The consistency looked very similar to Colour pop Ultra matte or PAC retro gloss.It take a  minute to dry completely.I find these lipsticks very hydrating ,I applied it without any lip balm still it managed to moisturise my lips.The formula is amazing.It gives velvet matte finish without being dry.It is not 100% transfer proof ,it has minimal transfer but it does not affect the intensity of the colour.The pigmentation is opaque and single swipe is enough to cover lips. Jeffree Star Velour lipsticks are loved by beauty community and now I know why everyone love it.The formula is hands down best among the brands I have tried.I cannot say about Huda Beauty or Kat Von D but it is better than Colour pop,Sugar or PAC liquid lipsticks.It stays for around 7 hours with light snacking.Like all other liquid lipsticks very oily food can break these lippies.It does not crumble or become powdery like Makeup Revolution Velvet lacquer.It have a very faint smell nothing strong which fades after a couple of minutes.DSC03994DSC03995

Gemini is a stunning nude colour for medium skin tones.It is described as a terra cota warm nude colour.It is a beautiful nude with pinky peach undertones.I love how the shade looked on my skin tone. It will suit fair to medium skins pretty well.I am happy with the shade because I do not have anything like in my kitty.

DSC03998

Overall,I really like the Jeffree Star Velour lipstick.The formula,shade,texture everything is top quality.I highly recommend to try at least one shade if you can get it easily.I am happy to try this shade.Will recommend it to everyone.

Thank you for reading

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

Colourpop Yes,Please Pressed Powder eye shadow Palette : Review

Hello peps,

Today I am going to talk about the best seller pressed eyeshadow palette from Colourpop Cosmetics.I love their lippies and was eager to try their shadows.I have the   weekend warrior palette which is pure LOVE.I  decided to give this warm palette a try so I ordered it from the Colourpop’s website.This palette has really great review so I also got intrigued to buy this.I ordered this Palette is Aug and it never delivered .Colourpop told me it is lost in transit and I have two options ; refund or courtesy replacement.Courtesy replacement means that they will ship the product one last time and if it is lost again no refund will be given.I opted for courtesy replacement and just prayed and prayed.Many of you must be thinking why I did not go for refund??This is how crazy I am.It arrived today and I jumped and danced 🙂 I was never so happy for any makeup courier before.Lets get into the review now.

Price : 16 $ .I paid 11$( Got a 5 $ coupon) plus 9.99$ shipping = 20.99 $ (Rs1356).You can get in India from insta stores for  Rs 1600 to 1900 depends from where you buy.

DSC03951

DSC03954Product claims :

PRESSED POWDER SHADOW Highly pigmented shadow that applies evenly and feels ultra-velvety and silky. This long wearing formula contains a unique combination of softer powders which adheres easily to the eyes, gives a soft focus effect, and blends smoothly and evenly.

The original fixed 12 pan palette is all about that golden hour glow – the hottest shades inspired by our fave time of the day.

DSC03960

DSC03953dsc03954.jpgMy Thoughts about the Colourpop Yes Please pressed eyeshadow palette

Packaging : It comes in a bright yellow colour outer cardboard packaging.The palette is white in colour with a matte cardboard packaging.The palette is palm sized and good for travelling.It does not have a mirror  and brush so it is light weight and sleek.One thing I do not like about the packaging is that it can easily get stains from the eye shadow which looks dirty.

DSC03966
Palette get stained only after first use

Pigmentation and texture : All the eye shadows are pigmented and one swipe is enough to get the maximum payoff.Some of the shadows are really powdery.I found Big cocktails very powdery and it has lot of kick back.All mattes and shimmers are easy to blend.The texture is smooth and buttery.Shimmers look stunning and duochromes are amazing.The colour are wisely selected.I really love the colour scheme of the palette it can be used to create all type of looks.

Staying power : The shadows are really long lasting .They stays for 8 to 10 hours without primer and with primer the lasting power can be incredible.I used it with some concealer on my eyelids as a base.They do not  crease on me.

 Shades :It as 8 matte and 4 shimmer eye shadows.I personally love the palettes with more matte shades.The shades range from coppers,red,orange and burgundy.Perfect palette for warm tone lovers.

Sugar Smudge me not liquid lipstick Fierry Berry and Tangerine Queen :Review & Swatches

Hello beautiful girls,

I love transfer proof  lipsticks and when Sugar Cosmetics launched their smudge me not liquid lipsticks, I was sure that I have to get these.These are launched in various vibrant shades from nudes to bold colours.We all love previous launches by Sugar Cosmetics and I had high hopes with this one also.Keep reading to know my thoughts about it.

Product claims:

If you’ve ever lusted for a “one-coat wonder” product for your lips, your search ends here. Get a full-blooded burst of pigment with just a single swipe of the SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick that will stay the day and right up till the night! Wine, coffee & date-proof – this is a matte lipstick that is guaranteed to last longer that your longest day. Available in  stunning shades that will make it difficult to choose – the question is, are you ready to commit to a lipstick that is built to last?

Price : Rs 499 Buy hereDSC03936DSC03939

Shade & Packaging :  Tangerine Queen is described as orange coral and it is an orangy coral color very vibrant and brightens up the face.It is a perfect summer color.Don’t worry about the rest of makeup when you have Tangerine Queen on your lips.DSC03937DSC03940

Fierry Berry is described as a marsala .It is a beautiful berry sought of colour.I absolutely love this for winter /fall season.DSC03941

 Packaging -It comes in a plastic bottle and packaging looks almost same as Maybelline lip polish.The applicator is sturdy and does the job perfectly.

Texture & Staying power : This is “one – coat wonder” really.. applies opaque in one go and insanely pigmented.I find the texture a bit thick as compared to other liquid lipstick I have tried so far.I will suggest to use a brush for its application because if thick layer of product sits on your lips its gonna be very drying.If not using brush I  just run my fingers on my lips and take off the excess product,this way it is less drying and finish is WOW.Both the shades  does not apply patchy and give a perfect matte,transfer proof finish which I LOVEEEE .This stays for around 6 to 8 hours with drinking and light snacking,oily food break down it and it fades away from centre.

So lets quickly  summarise the pros n cons: –

   Pros:

  1. Super pigmented

  2. Transfer proof and smudge proof

  3. Long lasting

  4. Reasonable price

   Cons:

  1. Lips need to be prepared (moisturise and exfoliate)

  2. Some may find it drying.

  3. Difficult to remove.

Rating : 4/5

  Conclusion –   I love Sugar Smudge me not lipsticks because in our Indian  market it is very difficult to find a transfer proof lipstick with such a reasonable price . I am glad Sugar comes up with something like this.

Thank you for  reading and please comment your thought and queries.Bye n Take care.

NYX Born to Glow Dupe Miss Claire Born to Glow Illuminator base Gleam – Review and swatch

Hey everyone,

Today I am going to talk about very affordable liquid illuminator from Miss Claire.It is  a perfect copy of NYX Born to Glow liquid illuminator in terms of packaging ,shades etc.I got mine a few months ago and I totally to forget to review it.It is supposed to be mixed with foundation or applied directly on high points of the face.Read on to know more about this.

Price : Rs  300 to 500 depends from where you buy.I purchased it from an Insta store for 350

DSC03816

Product Claims : Light weight liquid illuminator that gives skin a refreshed glow and beautiful highlight.

Available in 6 shades.

DSC03817

My Thoughts about Miss Claire Born to Glow Illuminator Makeup Base

It comes in plastic tube with a nozzlee covered with a black cap.I have no issues with the packaging but NYX may have because it 100% copied.It is convenient to use and travel friendly. I have this in the shade Gleam.Gleam is a rose gold shade which when blended does not look too rose gold.It blends into the skin and only pinkish shine is left obviously a little goes a long way.Actually I wanted to order Shiny beige shade but it was out of stock so I picked this one.I will say I am not very happy with this shade.The formula is light weight easy to blend and does not feel heavy or something.I never mixed it with the foundation but I have applied it on my cheekbones and bridge of the nose.I can see some glitters after blending it which I do not like at all.Glitters are not very chunky but are more visible in artificial light.I do not have any other problem with this product except the glitters visible.If you want a subtle highlight ,you will be disappointed with this product.I am not a big fan of this product firstly because the shade which I got secondly it has glitters which become more prominent in artificial lights.If the shade was something complimenting my skin tone I would have make it work some how.

DSC03820DSC03822

Overall,I will say I am not a huge fan of this product.The glow is not natural but glittery.I will suggest to buy shade which will compliment your skin tone if you really wanna try this.This colour on the cheekbones does not look flattering at all.The shade actually looks darker than my skin tone hence defeating the purpose of highlighting.

DSC03826
Blended with fingers( in artificial light)

Finally I will say  this product is a dupe of NYX liquid illuminators in product idea and packaging but they are not formula dupes.It looks pretty in the swatches but not so pretty in the face.I hope I have purchased beige shade .

Ratings 2.5/5

Thank you for reading

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.

 

20170630_141535
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 London Redemption Palette – Iconic 3 Review and swatches

Hi everyone,

Today I am going to review another eyeshadow palette from the brand Makeup revolution London.Makeup Revolution is popular for manufacturing affordable and amazing quality eyeshadow palettes.I purchased Iconic 3 palette which is a perfect dupe of Urban Decay Naked 3 palette.I have compared it UD naked 3 palette and it is exactly the same,the colors are also arranged exactly in the same order as in the Naked 3 palette.It is mix of mattes,shimmer and satin eye shadows.Read on to know more about this perfect dupe.

20170423_164726

Brand Claims:

A the ultimate palette with 12 iconic shades with ultra high payoff.

Price :

Rs 1200 but always on discount.I got mine for  Rs 390 ,huge discount 😉

20170423_16475220170423_164735

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.

20170423_164807

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.

Shades are not named so I am numbering them from left to right for explaining :

  1. Matte Beige
  2. Shimmery pale pink shimmer.
  3. Satin rosy brown
  4. Matte pinky brown
  5. Shimmery rose gold color
  6. Shimmery gold color
  7. Matte brown with pink undertones
  8. Shimmery brown
  9. Shimmery dark brown
  10. Shimmery brownish taupe
  11. Satin brownish taupe
  12. Black with red sparkles.

20170423_1650101.jpg
Swatches from L to R 1 to 6

20170423_165208
Swatches L to R

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.

PROS

  1. Affordable
  2. Amazing color selection
  3. Travel friendly
  4. Good pigmentation
  5. Nice color payoff

CONS

  1. Some shimmery shades are less pigmented
  2. Average wear time.

Rating 4/5

Conclusion : It is decent quality and beginner friendly palette.I love the fact that it is perfect dupe of Naked 3 palette .Those who cannot afford Urban Decay but want to try colors can definitely go for this one. I am fond of this palette because colors are so pretty and quality is also not that bad.I will recommend this palette if you are on a budget or a beginner.

Thanks for reading ,

Take care n bye

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.
