Colourpop Ultra Glossy lip Moon Child : Review and swatches

hey everyone,

Today I am going to talk about Colourpop again but this time I will talk about their gloss formula.This is my first ultra gloss purchase from Colourpop.I have not purchased any gloss since a long time and glosses are making a comeback so I thought why not try this.It is a collab product by Kathleen Lights.She is my favourite and her collabs are always talk of the town.So without much rambling lets begins .

DSC04640DSC04642

Product claims :

High shine gloss with medium-coverage, crème finish in a moisturizing and non-sticky, comfortable formula.

Stay wild in this pinky nude with gold glitter

Price : 6 USD .I got it for 550 plus shipping

My thoughts about Colourpop Ultra Gloss Moonchild

It comes in  a pale pink outer cardboard packaging .It has  stars printed all over the box which looks stunning.The actual product comes in a transparent bottle with golden cap with star printed at the neck of the bottle.It has kathleen’s name also written at the outer as well as inner packaging. Moonchild is pale pink gloss and it has golden specks of glitter.The shade is too pale for me if applied alone but with a nude lip liner underneath it works fine.It is a perfect nude for very fair to fair skin girls.Medium to deep skins can make it work by applying a nude liner of their choice.The formula is light weight and non sticky .The glitters are smooth and non gritty.The pigmentation is decent for a nude gloss.It stays for 2 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 is a beautiful nude for fair girls but I will not recommend it to Indian medium skin girls like me.

dsc04647.jpg

Overall I enjoy the formula of the gloss and it is a nice product to have.Kathleen nailed it with the colour ,formula and packaging.

Thanks for reading

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

Nivea Watermelon shine and Original care lip balm review

Hey everyone,

Winters are approaching so I thought I should invest in some good lip balms.I have tried Maybelline and Himalaya lip balm and totally enjoy them.I spot these Nivea lip balms in a local shop it was a combo offer of one tinted lip balm and one original care lip balm . I have very dry lips and lip balms are my saviour during winters.Lets get into the review now.

DSC03945

Price : 185 for the combo of lip balms. Buy here

Product Claims :

  • Delights your lips with fruity watermelon flavour
  • Beautifies lips with a soft glossy colour
  • It’s innovative formula with Hydra IQ provides long-lasting moisture for your lips
  • Contains Fruit extracts and Shimmering pigments
  • Leaves a touch of delicate colour on soft and smooth lipsDSC03948

 Nivea watermelon shine and Intensive care lip balm review

The packaging is quite sturdy and convenient to use.The colours are bright and eye catching.The packaging is very chic and fun.The lip balm is thick in consistency and do not find any difference in the formulation of original and tinted version.It hydrate my lips pretty well and it stays for 3 hours without eating.It completely vanishes after meal or drink.I have very dry lips and I need to apply this lip balm 2 or 3 times  a day.It keeps my lips soft and supple even if it is wiped off due to eating and drinking.I like the formula it is light weight and non sticky.It absorbs pretty nicely into my lips to keep them hydrated for long hours.Watermelon shine has a nice fruity smell whereas original one does not have any smell.Watermelon shine is a sheer pink lip balm with silver sparkles which does not transfer on lips.You need to apply 3 to 4 coats to get a sheer pink colour on the lips.The smell does not linger for long it fades after a couple of minutes.I do not find any drawbacks of these lip balm.The quantity is also sufficient to last for longer period of time.

DSC03949

Overall,I am enjoying these lip balm and using it non stop.I am in love with watermelon shine as its smell is delicious.I highly recommend it as it is affordable and good quality.

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.

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 shipping 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!

20170527_141656

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 shade and a  a must have shade from Colourpop.

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  among the cheap 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.

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.
20170419_160931.jpg

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

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

20170419_155146
Makeup Revolution London Salvation Lip Lacquer

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.

20170419_155322
Makeup Revolution London Salvation Lip Lacquer

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.

20170419_155534.jpg
You took my love swatch in day light

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.

Hope you find the review helpful.Do you have makeup revolution velvet lip lacquers?Please do share your experience

Thank you and take care

Lots of love
