All Oriflame The One Lip Sensation Matte Mousse Lipstick Swatches and First Impressions

IMG20161227134529

Hello pretty ladies!

New launches are so much fun aren’t they? Specially when the launch is a new liquid lipstick, thank your makeup gods! Liquid lipsticks are the rage. Period. However gone one are the days of super drying and flaky liquid lipsticks, now is the time for the most comfortable mousse lip creams which are not at all drying without you having to compromise on that sultry, chic matte finish. And I personally believe in giving our native brands more love and support than foreign brands as firstly, they need to come up as mainstream brands and secondly, they are way more accessible to the general masses. So here I am with all the swatches of the newly launched Oriflame The One Lip Sensation Matte Mousse Lipsticks and also what I think about each one of them.

The Quick And Easy At Home Facial With Inveda Facial Kits

IMG20161215115839

Hello curvies!

Climbing the ladder of age as a woman with imperfect skin in India has been such a big hurdle in my personality growth. The first thing which I have to hear (no matter how perfectly my makeup has turned out to be) the moment I enter a family gathering (from the oh-so-typical aunties of course) is that how roughed up my skin is. I have always had a troubled skin as a teenager and the skin-wars still continue till date. There are not many skin care products which have been of real help when it comes to my acne-prone skin with severe dry patches. People recommend getting regular clean ups and facials, but somehow I just don’t like the idea of any one else touching my face. To my rescue comes the at home facial kits and recently I tried my hand at the Inveda Facial Kits and man, are these babies ah-mazing.

Snacking Lite With Rite Bite

Hola curvies!

How is everyone doing? As some of you know, I am one of the happiest souls on the planet at the moment given that my semester exams just got over and I am left with oodles of time to give to The Curvy Princess. Also what makes me especially happy is the kind of response my past few posts have given me. Some of you sent me pictures of your wedding guest look attires and also queries about the much hyped green coffee. So one thing is for sure, we all love to hog, dress up and look good all at the same time. And honestly, there are so many healthy options out there these days that it is not really that difficult to hog and still look and feel good. Read more

Battle Of The Blushes – Maybelline Cheeky Glow VS Maybeline Color Show

20160916_144742

Hello my lovelies!
If I were to ask you about one makeup product that makes you happy by just looking at it, what would it be? For me the answer would be blushes, not because I use them a lot (no, I do not) but because those colourful little pods of love just make my soul cry with ecstasy.
I love my blushes, and as much as I love them, I really hate splurging on products I later regret. And choosing to blog about beauty and makeup I feel a responsibility towards my readers who want to know what products to invest in and what products to skip. So here I am with a comparison post of the two cutesie babies from the house of Maybelline which look like reprised versions of the same thing. Read more

TheFaceShop is All Set To Enter The Indian Markets

tfs3

Hello there my curvies!

So there was a time when I so miserably hated the notion of experimenting with my makeup and skincare product. yes, I behaved like an obnoxious little old woman, only that I was never little, tbh! But there are times which demand change and changing with times is all for the best. As much as I love sticking to basics, I cannot deny that korean skincare products have always been my weakness, not just because of their super cute and chic packagings but also the above excellence quality. New brands entering the Indian markets is always a welcome in my vision and when the brand is The Face Shop, you need to give the brand some credit.  Read more

10 Products From NYX Which You Must Check Out!

NY_12272951._nyx-soft-matte-lip-cream-all-11-color-you-ever

Nyx, one makeup brand which makes us see makeup in  a different light altogether. And now that NYX has officially launched in India, why shouldn’t this brand be on everyone’s wishlist? After all, NYX cosmetics has time and again won us all over with their amazing product formulations, gorgeous shades, and incessant range variety; and if we ignore the fact that it is too expensive for a drugstore brand here in India, this brand is really something to go weak in the knees for. Who could not fall in love with such a makeup brand?
Now that we have been screamingly declaring our never-ending love for NYX, some of you might be wondering about our top picks from the brand. So, here my lovely readers, is a compilation of the 10 must-have products from NYX that you must try.
1. Nyx Eyeliner and Smudger in Dark Brown

eye
This was the second gel eyeliner I had used, and man, oh man! How badly did I fell in love with it. The dark brown hue, the amazing texture, and the brilliant creamy-matte texture is to die-for. The gel liner in dark brown is a very wearable shade, insanely pigmented, and lasts for up to a good 4-5 hours on the lids without a base.
2. Nyx face primer in Lavender

4d04d5a744af311155e8befc210516df
Good make-up needs a nice, clean and prepped canvas (read face) to work upon—and NYX knows this concept a bit too well. That’s why it created this spectacular face primer for your beautiful skins. The sheer lavender hue in the primer imparts a subtle glow to your face and does away with all the yellow undertones and pigmentation of the facial skin, decreases the appearance of pores, and smoothens out the skin; making your foundation blending a breezy job.

3. Nyx Slide-on eye pencil in tropical green

6690928670172a8439184bad5f38cd50
The most insanely pigmented gorgeous dark green we have ever came across, the NYX slide-on eye pencil in tropical green excels beyond any limits and leaves no stone unturned in impressing us. Be it the pigmentation, the gorgeous colour, the creaminess, the smooth texture, or the lasting power; it scores a perfect 10 on 10.

4. Nyx Golden liquid eyeliner

58c807553350a2b74cb127e204b43989
Golden liquid liners are saviours for our warm skin with yellow-undertones. And NYX has made sure to create a fabulous liquid liner in a very-opaque golden colour which shows upon just a couple of strokes on the eyes—unlike other sparkly liners which do not show up at all on dark skins. This one is a definite try!

5. Nyx Trio in 21-Copper, Rust, Bronze

4b12d77f273f8ded3fc67c05e2d25283
Just a look at this trio—and the colour range is bound to make you fall for it, and fall hard. The shade range can be classified as apt for the modern-day bride who loves to experiment without straying away much from the traditional makeup. The texture of these is so smooth, not at all powdery or chalky, and it glides on like a dream.

6. Nyx round lipstick in tea rose

5a96bf9742d74787e3a9c875c63ead4f
NYX round lipsticks are generally a makeup newbie’s first purchases from the house of NYX! I don’t know why but I have somehow observed this makeup shopping pattern. 😉 So if you are one of those who is starting to build up her nyx collection, start up with getting your hands upon this sweet shade—tea-rose—from the round lipstick range. It shows up so beautifully on Indian skin tones as if it was created to suit us only.

7. Nyx extreme lip creams

9f97699687b2b4c7bda9a3779820cafc
NYX matte lip creams were the first of its kind to be launched in the market; inspiring so many other brands to get their own variations out. But, the original is always the best, and NYX went a step further and improved its already “THE BEST” lip creams and launched the Extreme lip creams! What better can we ask for! And the shade SIERRA, girl, take my word for it, is the most ravishing lip colour you’ll ever lay your hands upon.

8. Nyx Matte lipstick in Pinky Nude

9d6529b41b560c8ddefdd65339fe6f14
Matte lipsticks are so in this season, and the NYX matte lipstick in Pinky Nude is the perfect, as the name suggests, Pinky nude colour for Indian skin tones. Surprisingly, it is one of those nudes from a foreign brand which does not wash out Indian skin tones; and we love it!

9. Nyx Rouge cream blush in 07 Red cheeks

4b21a145d45f255770feca8abfd67fb1
Red blush is something most of us feel apprehensive about using when it comes to subtle makeup. But NYX rouge cream blush in 07 red cheeks was apparently formulated to clear all your misconceptions in regards to red cheeks. This cream blush gives a rosy lit-from-within glow, suitable for fair-medium-dusky—all kinds of skin tones; perfect for those in the lookout for a subtle sheen on the cheeks.

10. Nyx powder blush in Taupe and Desert rose

4c9b4d28ba3d8902aa1d6802e7001bcc
If there is one product that we have to choose from NYX which we cannot do without, it is the powder blushes, undoubtedly, thus we saved them for the last. 😛 the texture of these blushes is so amazingly smooth and sheer, that no one can say no to it. Coming in an array of gorgeous shades, you are sure to find one you cant live without. We personally love taupe, a warm chocolaty brown which can double up as a sheer bronzer; and desert rose which is a gorgeous, warm coraly-peachy blush which will liven up the entire look with just one swipe.

Which of these NYX products are you thinking of trying?

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour Swatches and First Impressions

revlon hd

Hey sweeties!

As some of you might have guessed by now, I have a thing for new makeup launches and I just feel it necessary to get the swatches of the entire new collecton just to devour and also to make it easy for you guys to choose which colours do you want from the collection.

So recently Revlon launched its new HD Ultra Mat Lip Colour range with 8 shades ranging from nudes, pinks and reds in india. These lip colours are already launched in the west since quite some time, and the reviews I had read about these babies were not too promising. But I am astrong believer of seeing the product for mylsef before passing judgements over the same, and so here I am with all the shades and swatches of the new Revlon HD Ultra Matte Lip Colour for you sweethearts!

Price: INR 1195 (which if you ask me is a complete downer, like 1200 bucks for a drugstore lip gloss is so not cool!)

revlon 5

HD Seduction

HD Seduction is the only brown nude shade with pink undertones in it. This is the most gorgeous and such a ME kind of nude shade which will flatter only fair to medium skin tones and might not suit duskier beauties. I can see this shade working as the perfect nude brown shade for indian skin tones when paired with a sultry smokey eye or a heavy kohl.

IMG_7553

HD Devotion

HD Devotion is a very subtle nude pink shade with warm undertones making it the perfect choice for almost all Indian skin tones. Very dark skinned beauties may looks washed out by this shade but other than that it will work with a vast array of skin tones. I found this shade pretty universal and got it for myself as well.

revlon 4

HD Flirtation

HD Flirtation is the perfect coral-ly peachy toned lipstick and it definitely speaks summer to me. Though it is a beautiful coral shade, it looks a bit pale and would not work well with dark skinned beauties. It might make you look garish or ashy and is definitely a tricky colour to pull off.

revlon 1

HD Addiction

HD Addiction is a really pretty fall-winter shade. It is a deep berry shade with vivid hints of plums and mauves in it. It is a deep yet subtle shade and will look very sophisticated when worn with minimal eye makeup and heavy lashes. Although I personally do not like berry shades for my age, I surely fell in love with this one and would love to give berry lipsticks a shot now.

revlon 7

HD Obsession

HD Obsession is a bright fuchsia lip colour which has very vivid cool undertones to it. It is one of the unique shades from the range and will complement indian skin tones well. Being a cool toned lipstick it will also make your teeth look whiter so if you are someone who feels fuchsia’s tend to make yopur teeth look yellow, you should definitely give this shade a try.

revlon

HD Temptation

HD Temptation will be perhaps the least popular shade from the range. it is a pale pink which looks rather milky, has cool undertones and is low on pigmentation. Very fair skinned girls can totally rock this colour but if you are even a little over NC 30 this shade will definitely wash you out.

revlon 3

HD Love

HD Love is your perfect orange based red which looks very vibrant and has strong yellow undertones to suit Indian skin perfectly. The shade is a bright orangey-red and a bright one at that. Shades like these need confidence, and if you have an ounce of that you can rock this bold yet bright shade beautifully.

revlon 7

HD Passion

HD Passion is a deep burgundy maroonish red which leans a bit towards 2015 pantone colour marsala. It is not exactly an ox-blood red but is a very deep burgundy sort of red which looks very vampy to me and will suit fair to dusky skin tones alike. HD passion will look much more flattering on duskier skin tones as it has very strong yellow undertones which will make the colour pop on duskier beauties.

Honestly, none of these settle into a pure matte, or even a demi matte finish. Rather all of these remain velvety and smudge easily. So which of the shades did you like the most?
