Hello Darlings,

We all love make-up.. don’t we?

So for the love of make-up, let’s move to today’s post which is about Nykaa’s new launch – Nyka So CrΓ¨me lipstick range. They have launched 18 shades in this range but I have picked just one shade to begin with this time ( because I don’t get PR boxes from them 😜 )

The shade that I have picked up this time is ‘It’s A Date‘.

Talking about the shade it’s a very beautiful shade of plum with some pink undertone and also gives hint of little red. So all in all the shade is quite pretty.

Moving on to the pigmentation and finish of the product, as the name suggests, the finish is creamy and very soothing on lips. So you don’t need to apply a lip balm underneath. Pigmentation too is quite good and at least for this shade, one application gives you proper coverage.

These lipsticks are enriched with almond oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E for intense hydration to your lips.

Pros of the lipstick
Very much pocket friendly
Easily glide and super smooth.
Creamy texture and high pigmentation.
Suits all skin tones
Superbly hydrating
Cruelty free

Cons
Can’t think of any except a little bleeding or transferring – which is fine as with any other non liquid lipstick.

Price
These lipsticks are priced at INR 299/- each for 4.2 gms of product.

Can be bought from Nykaa -> this is a URL, you can simply click and get redirected to Nykaa’s page to buy.Hope you liked the post, please do drop a comment.

Maybelline New York Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick – Review and Swatches

Hello Pretty Girls,

It’s been QUITE LONG since I have posted a blog as I wasn’t keeping well and it took longer than usual to get over the viral infection but I am recovering now and so back to what I like doing and missed hell lot all this while.
I have clicked all the pics related to this post during my “not-so-well” days of the year, so excuse me if these don’t look that great, but I hope you’ll like the blog and pics equally.

I recently came across these range of liquid lipsticks from Maybelline called as – ‘Maybelline New York Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick’. These lipsticks are priced at quite reasonable price @ INR 349/- for 7 ml of product.

I have picked up two shades from this range – “Easy Berry” and “Sensationally Me” – These are the names of shades πŸ˜›

Talking about the lipstick quality, it’s matte in finish and quite pigmented. Since these are liquid lipsticks I expected them not to bleed and stay for good amount of time, however these lipsticks do bleed and transfers if you touch your lips even after couple of minutes, the lipstick is dried. Staying power is manageable but they can’t survive meals.

Let’s have a look at the swatches of two shades I picked up –
1. Easy Berry – This is a pretty barbie pink color. This is quite girly to wear and instantly brightens up your face. It’ll suit medium to fair skin toned girls. It’s lovely – would recommend!

undefined

2. Sensationally Me – This is dark brick red/brown color shade with nude undertone. I won’t call it nude or red/brown of shade, it essentially a mix of all three. It’s a perfect shade to be worn to office !

undefinedundefined

Verdict – For this price, a brand like Maybelline is definitely worth trying. The quality is not as great as other matte liquid lipsticks from Maybelline but it can be your budget friendly daily use lipstick. I liked the easy berry shade more out of the two I used as it gives a glow to my face even when I am not at best of my health πŸ™‚

You can buy the shades from these URLs (NYKAA online)

That’s it about this particular review. Please tell me how do you feel about these lipsticks if you tried any.
Also, please don’t forget to follow my blog if you haven’t already. You can follow me on Instagram if you want to, I usually post images related to my blogs there first πŸ™‚

Keep showering your love and support to the blog, love you all !

Colorbar spotlight illuminating lotion – Product Review

Colorbar spotlight illuminating lotion – Product Review

Heya!

Hope weekend is treating you all well.

This post is about review of “Colorbar spotlight illuminating lotion”. This is used either mixed with foundation or before foundation to prepare your skin. I mix it with my foundation.I do apply moisturizer before this product as my skin tend to dry during winters. This gives your foundation, a nice texture and it doesn’t loon cakey. I had applied foundation at times of my ‘not so prepared’ skin and ended up having a not so perfect looking foundation. I am sure each one of us has been there, doing not so perfect makeup, but I wouldn’t mock at you for that, would suggest you to not do that too, not a great thing to do being a woman, as I always say, raise other women πŸ™‚

Anyway, coming back to the review of this particular product. It does give you a fresh and supple look but dont expect to get a very glossy, shiny look.

Price – It comes for INR 950/- for 30 ml of product.

This is free from parabene, sulphates, silicones, mineral oils, and artificial fragrance. This is also cruelty free.

You can buy it from Nykaa https://nykaa.ly/P_9849

There’s no cons that I can write about this product. It leaves skin soft and supple and gives dewy look and I am definitely buying this when my current bottle gets over.

This is no promotional post and I am not a sponsor for the product but it’s a must buy 😁

Do write back if you want any specific information related to the product. Please do like,share and comment on the post if you liked it.

Stay beautiful and happy!

Thanks,

Sick days – How you can feel better

Hello Readers,

This post is about those not-so good days when we fall ill and start to feel low.
The reason I am writing this post is I am kinda gong through this phase currently and know the feel. I am a very lively and super hyperactive person who always have to do something or the other. This is the reason along with my full time job and taking care of a 3 year old, I manage to take some time out and do what I like the most – expressing my thoughts and which place could have been better than my very own blog, where I am already getting lot of love from lovely readers like you all.
I try to remain positive in most difficult times also and very consciously try to convince myself “all is well” πŸ˜€ . I’ll share with you all, how I try to feel better even in tough times – sick days or other challenging phases.

Trick your brain – The moment you run into difficult phase like having some major health issues etc. , first thing that happens is you start feeling low which is very obvious but you need to tell yourself, it’s temporary and you’ll get over it soon. I won’t say that you’ll start feeling well immediately because yes, you are ailing and it would take time before you get over it BUT tricking your brain would surely boost your morale.

Divert yourself – When you’re down with health issues, look for the ways to divert yourself and do what you like doing the most – reading a book,watching your favorite movie or possibly anything you love. When I was down with cold, fever n severe body ache, I was capturing snaps for my product reviews πŸ˜›

Take a break – We all have some professional commitments and I know many of us (at least I do so) keep pushing ourselves so our jobs/tasks aren’t affected much but let me tell you if you don’t give your body the break it deserves, it’ll force you do so and the day it chooses might not be the one you would like.

Hang on there – Ok, so the statement I am gonna write, might sound philosophical to you but trust me it’s not a copied one from some book or movie but I have experienced it always. “The moment you are at peak of your issues, your better time starts right from there”. Trust me, it happens, whenever I feel I am going through the worst and I can’t bear it anymore, it starts improving.

You are always tougher than you thought you were ! Whenever I feel ridiculed by my health or issues, I just put my lipstick on , look myself in the mirror and tell myself – you are unstoppable πŸ˜‰

Hope you liked this post, how do you get over your difficult days? Please share your thoughts in Comments section.

Stay healthy and beautiful !

Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color – Review and Swatches

Hi Beautiful Girls,

Today, I will review 2 shades from Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip ColorΒ lipstick range. The 2 colors I would review are “MR8 Orange Edge” and “MP18 Plum Pick”.
Firstly, the packaging of the lipsticks is really pretty one, in golden color. Though the lipstick gives you matte finish, it doesn’t dry out lips and pretty smooth on lips. Pigmentation too is quite good but I feel, it differs for different shades as I tried 2 shades and felt one was more pigmented than other. It is not transfer-proof.
undefined
Price – These are priced at INR 500/- (for 3.6 gm of product) but you will find some discounts running always specially when bought from Nykaa.

Shade 1 MP18 Plum Pick – This is bright magenta color and I don’t see any hints of plum shade in this to be honest. But this is a pretty and quite girly color to wear. You can buy it here
undefined

Shade 2 : MR8 Orange Edge – Honestly, I bought this color in hope of some very pigmented bright orange color, in matte however this didn’t turn out to be very pigmented and I had to have more swipes to get nice shade. Here’s the shade (didn’t feel like clicking a lot of pics in this one, quite dull for being “orange”)


Would I buy more of the shades – Probably not, I may get better choices in other brands for this price.

Hope this review and swatches are helpful.
