Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define C12 : Review and swatch

Hey everyone,

So I am back with another makeup product which is very popular and is very hyped. It is the conceal and define concealers by Makeup Revolution.These concealers are considered as a dupe of Tarte shape tape.So lets start and see what the hype is all about.

Price : Rs 525 from Hokmakeup

Product claims : The concealer for everyone. 25 shades ranging from fair to deep, in cool, neutral and warm undertones. Lightweight yet full coverage concealer to cover blemishes, even skin tone and counteract dark circles, with a matte finish that won’t settle or accentuate fine lines and pores. Long wearing intense pigment that can also be used to contour and add definition. Our large doe foot applicator allows for smooth application that won’t drag on the delicate skin under your eyes

Packaging : It comes in a rose gold plastic bottle which looks stunning.The bottle is round and thick.It has a big doe foot applicator which I enjoy.I love the packaging it looks luxurious.The shade name is mentioned at the back of the bottle.I do not having issues with the packaging.It is travel friendly and convenient to use.It has a large doe foot applicator which picks enough product.I really enjoy the applicator.

Shade – These come in a variety of shades.It is very confusing to choose shade online.I was confuse between C10 and C12 as these are mentioned as yellow under toned and for medium skins.So I picked C12 which has strong peachy undertone which is nice to conceal and darkness and discoloration.This shade is sadly a bit dark on me so I either use it under my foundation to correct the discoloration or I mix it with my Maybelline Fit me in Sand sable which is light for me.I hope I would have picked C10 it will suit most wheatish skins.It is best to try the shades offline.I saw Tammy Clarke using this shade so if you have same skintone as Tammy this is perfect for you.

Texture and staying power – The concealer is medium consistency and spreads easily .It is not full coverage but it gives a very beautiful skin like finish and feels very light on the skin.It is medium coverage and it is water proof.It creases very little but nothing major.It has a chemical smell which does not stay for long.It is not overly thick or thin.It blends easily into the skin .I am impressed by the texture and staying power of this concealer.It stays for around 6 to 8 hours on my skin if sealed with a powder.It is very moisturising which I love.It does not dry quickly as some concealers tends to dry fast

Overall,I really like this product.It is definitely not full coverage but the formula is nice and easy to use.It has a good staying power and it comes under the category of affordable concealers in India.I do not have any major issue with this one .Highly recommend if you get your perfect shade.

Thank you for reading

Colourpop Ultra glossy lip Champagne mami

hey everyone,

Today I am back with another Colourpop product review.Colourpop had free International shipping during black friday sale and I went over board and purchase many things.So many Colourpop reviews coming soon.Colourpop launched their new ultra glossy formula.I have Moonchild from Kathleen lights collab and really enjoy the formula.I picked Champagne Mami and here are my thoughts about the product.


Glass-like shine with subtle shimmer and sheer tint. Enriched with jojoba oil to moisturize, nourish, and and provide a cushiony feel for juicy, fuller-looking lips.

Shade description :You gotta hit them angles with your phone out in this rose gold

Price : 6 USD. I got it during an offer for 4.8 USD

My thoughts about Colourpop Ultra Glossy Champagne Mami It comes in  a pale pink outer cardboard packaging .It has  small circles printed all over the box which looks stunning.The actual product comes in a transparent bottle with silver cap.Champagne mami is a rose gold gloss with very tiny sparkles and has pearlescent formula which gives glass like shine with subtle shimmer.It looks beautiful in the bottle and on the lips as well.The shade looks beautiful on my lips without lip liner also.It looks very natural and gives a sheer muted pink tint to the lips.I think it will suit a variety of skin tones.I looks amazing on my Indian skin.It is a perfect every day gloss. The formula is light weight and non sticky .

The glitters are smooth and non gritty.The pigmentation is decent for a gloss.It stays for 3 hours or so then it needs to be reapplied.The staying power is decent as it is a gloss and touch ups the always needed.It does not have any smell.It keeps the lips hydrated,gives high shine and make lips look plump and juicy. It also has a brush tip applicator which I like a lot.It helps to spread the product evenly on lips.The brush tip also help to layer gloss on any other lipstick without disturbing the colour.I do not find any con or drawback of the product.I enjoy it.I highly recommend this colour to everyone.

Hope you enjoy this post

Sugar Stroke of Genius Heavy duty Kohl Green light review

hello folks,

I love colored eye liners and I have many in my collection .They instantly makes you look gorgeous without much effort.They can also be used as base for smokey eyes.So,I make a point to have all colors in my collection.Sugar Cosmetics launched more shades in their Stroke of Genius heavy duty kohl and I grabbed green shade .I have their original stroke of Genius in Back to black which I have reviewed here.So lets get into the review now.

Price : Rs 499

Product description :

Eye makeup can be tricky but a stroke of genius can put you at ease. Add to that intense colour and soft creamy texture and you know you’ve been hooked for life. We’re on about SUGAR Stroke of Genius Heavy-Duty Kohl – a waterproof Kohl pencil that can add pretty to your eyes in a single swipe. Its wax-based formula spreads evenly and lasts for up to 8 hours. Not just that, it comes with a free sharpener to ensure your eye makeup is always on point.

My Thoughts about Sugar Stroke of Genius Heavy duty Kohl Light Green

It comes in a jet black kohl with green color band at the end and black cap.It is sharp enable and comes with a sharpener.The outer cover is a cardboard with standard Sugar Cosmetics logo and graphic.It is made in Italy.The packaging is slim and chic.It looks classy yet simple at the same time.

The kohl is light green in color with a satin finish.The pencil is smooth and glides easily it is creamy and rich.It is so pigmented that only one swipe is enough to cover the eyes.

It is easy to smudge the kohl as well.The sharpener provided with it very good quality and does the job perfectly.It does not irritate my eyes and was comfortable to wear for long hours also.I have easily worn this for 6 hours and it stayed on my waterline for long time but it kinda faded on my upper lid.The thing I do not like about this liner is that it can easily smudge with the touch of your hands or something.If you will not touch it will not budge or move but if you are habitual of touching your eyes it can get really messy.Another drawback is that it is not a twist up packaging.Twist up pencils are more convenient and no product is wasted during sharpening.

It can be used a base for green eye looks or can be used as lower lash liner for special occasions.It subtle sheen brighten up the eye and makes it appropriate for special occasions or festivals.The formula is very high quality and feels buttery which I love.I think the formula is amazing for the price point.

I think it is good product but Maybelline Gel liners are more long wearing but if you love the shade you can go for this .You will not be disappoint.

Ratings : 4/5

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

DSC04679

 

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.

DSC04680

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.

Ratings :5/5

I absolutely love the color and the formula .These stays for a long period of time so no need to reapply.I totally recommend this.

Stila Magnificent Metal Glitter eyeshadow : Kitten Karma

 

Hey ya,

I am obsessed with glitter these days.I love how they take a look to another level.My obsession for glitters begins with the Stila Magnificent glitters.I absolutely love them.I am also trying pressed glitter  these days.But this post is not about pressed glitter.This is about another shade from the Stila Magnificet Metals.Kitten karma is their popular shade so I have to get it any how.I purchased the mini version as it makes the product accessible and does not burn  a whole in the pocket.So lets begins with the review now.

DSC04671

Price: 24 Dollars for 4.5 ml. I got the mini version for 1100

 

Product Claims

This brilliantly long-wearing sparkle eye shadow combines the perfect mix of pearl and glitter to lavish eyes with incredible luster and shimmer.  With its uniquely lightweight, water-infused texture, Glitter & Glow glides on effortlessly, then dries down smoothly, locking in maximum sparkle with minimal fallout, for eyes with a real “wow!” factor.

How to Use

Apply one coat directly along the lash line and centre of the lid. Use your finger or a firm brush in a tapping motion to blend edges and set.  Wear alone or over eye shadow.

DSC04672

Packaging : It comes in a transparent  rectangular plastic bottle with a silver cap.The shade name is mentioned at the back of the bottle.It comes with  a wand which is good quality and makes the job even more easy.It is a light weight and travel friendly.

 

Texture : These are light weight and does not feel heavy on the lids .The glitters are not chunky at all.It dries quickly if applied in a thin coat but a heavy coat take much time to dry.The glitter does not went in to my eyes or irritate my eyes.These can be used as a glitter eyeliner as well.This shade is less glittery than diamond dust.DSC04673

Shade : kitten karma is a pinky champagne color with golden glitters.It comes in 11 beautiful shades.I instantly feel in love with the shade.It looks beautiful on eyes.It is the most popular shade of all the shades.

My thoughts about Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow liquid eye shadow

I really like the formula of the product, it is light weight and fuss free.No glitter glue is needed to wear it.I have seen You tubers wearing it alone without even using eye shadows. This product alone can give you glamorous eyes perfect for night out or party in minutes.I do not experience any major fall out from this if applied properly. I wore it for a marriage function and it stayed quite well for 6 hours on my lids without fading.It is pigmented and one or two coats are required for full glittery eyes.The applicator is so convenient that it makes the work even more easy. I got the mini one from their Written in Stars Holiday collection and I love that it is actually not very tiny it is a decent sized mini product.

DRAWBACKS????

Expensive and availability in India.

Note : Do not apply a heavy coat in one go .It will surely give full intense glitter but it is very difficult to dry.It also starts to flake off after some time.Apply in thin coats and set each coat with a brush .This way the shadow will stay on for long hour and it will have less fall out.

 

Overall thoughts

It is very unique product,great for those who have just started playing with glitters.The formula is amazing and the shades are to die for.It is loved and appreciated by beauty community and it surely deserves that.I am happy to have it.You can try this if you love glitters .

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.

Colourpop Gone wishing mini size kit review

hey everyone,
Today I have another lip product review .It is again from Colourpop.I have quite a few colourpop shades and I absolutely love Colourpop’s liquid lipsticks.They always keep launching new stuff.So,this kit was on sale so it grabbed my attention.It has all brand new shades from their collection.I could not resist myself and ordered this one.Read on more to know more about the product.
DSC04650DSC04651
Product claims :

This Mini Ultra Matte Lip Kit will keep your look so fresh for the season. Including brand new mattes from our Holiday launch, and two exclusive shades to the kit: First Position and Needle & Thread, there’s a kiss-proof lip for any occasion!

 DSC04624

Price :18 USD
Shades :
Souffle : A vibrant berry color.Very similar to more better but slightly lighter
Take a pixie : A dusty beige.Beautiful warm nude.Love it
First position : A true red
Needle & Thread : A toned down pink
Arabesque : A deep maroon
DSC04626.JPG
My thoughts about the product :

It comes in a purple cardboard packaging.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.It is so light that you will forget that you are actually applying any thing . Colourpop ultra matte are improving day by day.They have fixed their formula .It is more comfortable.These are super long wearing and transfer proof.They easily stays for about 6 to 8 hours . I always choose these lippies for a wedding or some event where I dont want to reapply my lipstick every now and then.I think the mini set has all the shades from nude to deep maroon ,red and pink.I love the colour take a pixie and souffle.They will look beautiful on all skin tone.Arabesque is  a perfect fall colour.It is very important to moisturise and exfoliate lips before applying these as they can accentuate flaked lips and look ugly.

DSC04653
From Lto R souffle,needle and thread,take a pixie,arabesque and first position

 

The only downside of the product is that it can not be reapplied easily.You have to wipe off completely to reapply the color.This is not a problem because  it rarely needs reapplication.Some of you may find the mini size too small.But it is fine to keep them for special occasion.It is better to have small size than a full size which will take forever to finish and also expires.

 

Rating 4.5/5
I really enjoy the kits .The new shades are interesting and beautiful to play with.I highly recommend this kit.You can grab it during sale for extra savings.
Thanks for reading.

Colourpop Lippie stix Candy paint : Review & swatches

Hey everybody,

Today I am going to share with you all my though about Colourpop lippie stix. I absolutely love Colourpop and they are affordable too.So,Colourpop launched some new shades in their lippie stix range.They launched 10 brand new shades and I grab two shades.This is the first time I  tryied lippie stix from the Colourpop.Lippie stix comes in various finishes as a matte lip lover,I grabbed candy paint which is a matteX .Read on to know my thoughts about it.

Price : 5.50 $.Colourpop increased their price to 0.5 $

DSC04564DSC04565DSC04566

Product claims :

Get one swipe pigmentation in a full-coverage, ultra matte finish in a comfortable formula loaded with skin-loving ingredients like shea butter and Vitamin E.

Lippie Stix Formula contains Vitamin E, Mango, Avocado, and Shea butter for added comfort and moisture. None of our Lippie formulas contain any nasty ingredients like Parabens or Sulfates.

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.

DSC04574
single swipe in day light

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.

Thank you,

XOXO
