Colourpop Supernova eyeshadow review and comparison with Stila magnificent metals eyeshadow

Hello girlies,

Colourpop is the hottest makeup brand these days with constant new launches and amazing offers Colourpop has become everyones’s new favourite.So recently Colourpop launched their liquid eyeshadows called supernova liquid eyeshadows in five different shades.These are Colourpop’s first liquid eyeshadows and priced 7 USD. Since they are launched they constantly compared to  very famous Stila magnificent metals glitter and glow liquid eyeshadows.I picked one shade immediately on the day of their launch and I received it a couple of days ago.Lets see is it a Stila dupe? Read on to know more

Price – 7 USD .I got it for  650 INRDSC04129DSC04131DSC04132DSC04133DSC04134

Product claims :

We somehow bottled up high shine liquid metal, loaded it with glitter, and created an actual supernova for your eyes. This water-infused, super longwearing liquid shadow is extremely versatile and can work for so many looks, whether you want an all over base color, a touch of glitter, or extreme metallic foil. This high coverage and high impact shadow will send you into hyperspace….no fall out included.

These high-impact ultra-glittery shadows have a metallic base, are extremely long-wearing, and can be used as a base, alone, or as a topper

Packaging : The outer box is a cardboard packaging and the shadows are packed in same plastic transparent bottle like their liquid lipsticks.It has a flat soft wand to apply directly on the lids.The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly .DSC04135

DSC04138Shade : It is launched in five shades and I got the shade Walk of fame.Walk of fame is a gold liquid eye shadow with some silver glitter flecks.The colour is stunning and can be used by all skin tones really well.It can be used as an eyeliner,shadow topper or alone as a shadow.

DSC04138DSC04137

Texture and Pigmentation: These liquid shadows are neither too thick nor thin.It has the right consistency so that it can spread very easily on the lids.I dries in a minute or so and does not crease or transfer once set.I found the shade walk of shade a little patchy if applied with the wand but it works pretty fine with a brush or finger.Colourpop suggest to apply it with a flat synthetic brush for opaque pigmentation.It looks beautifuk as a shadow alone or as a shadow topper.It adds so much glamour to the eye look if applied as a topper.It is a multi functional product.There is no glitter fall out once they are dried.

Staying power – It stayed for 8 hours on my lid which is amazing.It had no gliiter fallout when I touched it with my fingers.They can be removed easily with water so they are not water proof but it is a long staying product.

Comparison with Stila Magnificent metals glitter and glow liquid eyeshadow

These shadows are very much compared with Stila magnificent metals .I will say that it is a not a perfect stila dupe.Stila shadows are more glittery ,they packed with tons of chunky glitters .They are liquid glitter eyeshadows but colurpop ones have a foiled finish.It does not have tons of glitters.Glitters in Colourpop supernova shadows are fine and less as compared to Stila.The idea is of a liquid eyeshadow is same but the texture of the product is completely different as you can tell by looking at the swatches.  Colourpop supernova dries quickly as compared to Stila.The staying power is almost similar.

So,I would like to say it is not a exact Stila dupe.Stila is a glitter liquid shadow but Colourpop Supernova has a foiled high shine effect with less glitters.

Overall,my final thoughts about this product is that it is an excellent product with an affordable price.I hope they launch more shades in it.I am eyeing on some other shades like firecracker and hard to empress and will grab them soon.

Please comment and share your thoughts and queries .Please subscribe to my blog if you like the post it would means a lot to me.

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

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.

Thank you so much for reading

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.

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.

BH 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.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss -Kiss me Coral Review and Swatches

 

Hi Friends,

            Today I am going to share my experience with Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in the shade Kiss me Coral .Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick range needs no introduction as we all makeup addicts know about some beautiful shades in this range. I was missing a coral shade in my gloss collection and when I saw this Lip gloss at Revlon’s counter I decided to give it a try. So let’s find out whether it impressed me or not.

20170419_155752
Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss Kiss me Coral

 

Price – Rs 550 for 3.8 ml

Packaging – Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss comes in a regular transparent bottle and black cap with brand name printed on a golden band at the upper side of the bottle. It is easier to find out shade if you are in a hurry because of the transparent bottle if you have more than one shade in your kitty. The shade name is written at the bottom of the bottle. The applicator is nothing special it is the regular doe foot applicator which I find convenient to use. All the ingredients, price, quantity and such other details are mentioned on the bottle.

20170419_155744

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss Kiss me Coral

Shade – These are available in 12 different shades. It is semi-transparent coral red shade. It looks orange in the bottle but when applied is natural coral. You can layer it for more intense colour but a single coat gives you a natural coral lips perfect for college girls and every day wear. There are some glitters but they are not visible on lips but by looking closely into the mirror I noticed some glitters on my lips after removing the gloss. It can be topped on your favourite coral lipstick for additional shine and moisture.

20170419_155802

Texture and Finish – The gloss is moisturising and shining. It is non-sticky and provides semi-transparent colour to the lips. It is perfect when you don’t want to worry about lipstick colour wearing off or setting unevenly on lips. It is not heavy at all and plumps lips with moisture. It glides smoothly on lips and does not stain. I don’t find any smell in the gloss which bothers me and it is tasteless.

20170419_155902

Staying power – As we all know lip glosses have low staying power so it also does not have an exceptional staying power. It lasts for 3 hours without meals and after which shines starts to fade slowly. It cannot survive full meals.

 

20170419_160210

 

What I like about the product

  • These glosses are easily available across Revlon counters and online websites.
  • These are affordable.
  • It gives decent quality and quantity for the price.
  • It has a non-sticky formula and glitters are subtle.
  • It is super hydrating and plumping.
  • These glosses are available in a variety of shades.

What I don’t like about the product

  • Revlon Super Lustrous glosses have low staying power like other glosses.
  • This is semi-transparent glosses so not for people who have pigmented lips.
  • This is an average quality glosses.
  • This gloss is not for those you hate glitters.

Rating – 4/5

Final verdict

Overall I am impressed by the lip gloss .It is light weight, non-sticky with subtle glitters. It perfectly add shine and moisture if topped over your favourite lipstick. The formula is perfect and convenient for college going girls and teenagers .Those who have pigmented lips may not find it suitable.

Thanks for reading. Bye and Take care

I was in search for an affordable eye shadow palette and this brand grabbed my attention .Makeup revolution products are widely available on websites.The redemption palette comes in variety of shades.

Price    Rs 1200 for 14 grams.

20170419_153640

My  Experience with Redemption Palette Hot Smoked

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 pigmented eye shadows   both in matte and metallic finish. These eye shadows are perfect for creating sultry smokey looks. This eye shadow  palette is said to be a dupe of Urban Decay Smoked palette since I don’t have UD palette so I can’t say much  whether it is a perfect dupe or not, but some shades are similar to UD smoked palette . 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. It has 5 matte shades and 7 shimmery shades. I am quite impressed with the shimmery shades but matte shades are a bit chalky except black. Let’s take a look at the shades one by one as these shadows are nameless, we will number them from left to right for better understanding.

1st shade – Matte light beige perfect for brow bone highlight.(appears ivory in swatch)

2nd shade -Darker version of shade 1 can be used as transition shade or again brow bone and inner corners of eyes. This is also matte.

3rd shade – Beautiful shimmery grey.

4th shade -Matte dark brown can be used to fill and shape brows.

5th shade- Matte Black (very useful)

6th shade – Shimmery chocolate brown

7th shade -Shimmery  Plum (Love this).

8th shade – Shimmery Turquoise or sky blue .

9th shade -Shimmery Forest  green.

10th shade -Shimmery smoked grey.

11th shade Matte  lavender.

12th shade  -Shimmery purple.

Pros

  • Affordable and Travel friendly
  • Good for beginners
  • Easily blendable
  • Easily available

 

Cons 

  • Matte shades are a bit chalky
  • Staying power without primer is not good.
  • Packaging not comparable with high end brands.

Rating  3.5/5.

Final verdict

Overall I am very happy with the palette and as a beginner it is a worthy investment. It is  cheap and easily available. If you have used expensive high end palettes you might not enjoy it but it is good for young  girls and beginners. I was very excited as it was my first eye shadow palette  and  I am satisfied. Please let me know your thoughts and experience with the product I would love to read them and don’t forget to share looks  created by using this palette.

Makeup Revolution London Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer – You took my Love

Hello everyone,

Today I am going to talk about another matte liquid lipstick.It is probably my first liquid lipstick and first product from the brand itself.These come in variety of shades from dark vampy colors to beautiful nudes.I bought these when Makeup Revolution was available only on Jabong.com and MUR products were always on discount.Now, MUR is becoming the most raved brands in India and the prices are Oh so much now.I donno why makeup is so expensive in India.Anyways ,without further a do lets jump to the review.

Price : Rs 700 but I bought for Rs 350 Buy here

Packaging : The lip lacquer comes in a rose gold cardboard packaging which is eye catching and pretty.The lacquer is packed in  a transparent bottle with a black cap and the shade name is written at the end of the bottle.It is very  convenient to use and the applicator is perfect for easy application.The bottles are transparent so it is easy to spot the shade in the collection.The bottle is sturdy and travel friendly.

Shade : The shade “you took my love” is a bright blue based fuchsia  color with a hint of neoness in it.I love the color it is bold and perk up the entire face,but I never wore it during the day time beacuse during the day it is too neon for my complexion.It is a beautiful color for weddings,parties and festivals.It will suit fair to medium complexion but it will look a bit weird on dark complexion.This is my most reached fuchsia lipstick.

Texture and staying power – It has a medium consistency neither too thick nor too thin.It easily spread on lips and give opaque finish.It is super pigmented and transfer proof. These smell nothing and does not bleed or smudge.It is very important to moisturise and exfoliate lips before applying the lipstick.The wear time is incredible,this is the reason I reach for this lipstick very often,apply it and forget it.I wore it for a function and it stayed for almost 8 hours on my lips I also had biryani but there was no significant change in color.These convert to velvet matte finish in 20 seconds but do not rub your lips when it is wet,let it  dry completely and you are  set .It is difficult to reapply this lipstick ,it is better to remove and then reapply.It cannot sustain very oily food and fades  unevenly and crumbles. I do not find these extremely drying if worn over a lip balm.It is difficult to remove this lipstick,I use coconut oil and wipe off with a coconut.

PROS

  • Transfer and smudge proof
  • Long lasting
  • Beautiful color and pigmentation
  • True matte finish
  • Travel friendly packaging

CONS

  • Costly in India
  • Some may find it drying
  • Difficult to  reapply
  • Stains badly
  • Fades unevenly and crumbles

Rating : 4/5

Overall : It is a decent liquid lipstick with solid wear time and beautiful color.I love it because it is transfer proof and stays for a long time.I  know the trick to wear it so I never found anything bad in it.Follow the rules to apply liquid lipstick and you also gonna love this.
