Insight Concealer Foundation Review And Swatches

IMG20161215120952

For anyone who knows me knows what a sucker I am for budget makeup products. It is not that I do not like splurging on high end makeup but if I can get a quality product for the quarter of the conventional prices, I am all game for it. In the hoard of exploring the much heard about brands, we tend to forget our local Indian brands which are capable of giving the international brands a run for their money and are most of the times priced really reasonably. One such brand which came to my vanity after much exploration is INSIGHT cosmetics. And this is for a fact that if a brand can do quality base makeup, it has to be good. So let us dig into the review for one of its best selling products, The Concealer Foundation. Read more

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 Best Pressed and Loose Drugstore Powders For Baking Makeup Ft VOV cosmetics

IMG20161215121605

Baking! The one makeup technique that has taken the highlighting game to a whole new level. If the conventional highlighting and contouring is a bit too much for your simplistic nature, then baking my friend, is the thing for you. And honestly, there is no dearth of loose powders out there in the market, but the ones that we see on Instagram and Youtube makeup tutorials are either too expensive or are not readily available in the Indian markets. This irks me out endlessly, and therefore I planned this post where in I decided to showcase the best, and to forget the cheapest compacts and loose powders to try out your hand at baking your makeup.

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

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.

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?
