What all I have used to Achieve this look:

  1. Real Technique Precise Liner Brush.
  2. L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza 36H- Sapphire Blue. Read the review here. 

Real technique precise liner brush

Inspiration: Tried M•A•C SS16 Fashion Week Eye Look: Dramatic Cat Eye from Libertine with Chantel.

Steps: You can use any waterproof eye liner which is smudge and water proof. Eye Liner brush should have a thin tip to give the precise application, I have used Real Technique precise liner brush.

  1. Start with a single sweep of eye liner that goes from the inner corner and ends just short of the outer corner of the eye.
  2. Using a very thin brush lightly sketch a diagonal line starting at the outer corner of the eye.

I hope you enjoyed the look ladies… Don’t forget to comment and share your view. I would love to read them 🙂

MAC Magic of the Night Collection for Holiday 2015: MAC All Fired Up Lipstick

Magic of the Night Collection for Holiday 2015-packaging

It was limited Edition Collection and consisted of 4 set of lipsticks, 5 Colourdrenched pigment, 2 eye liner,2 highlighters, 2 lip liners.

You can find more info about this collection at MAC’s official website: https://www.maccosmetics.com/collections-magic-of-the-night

My Experience: Packaging was the first thing that caught my eye and it was love at first sight. Purple color of the lipstick case is so hypnotising…it almost draws you towards it 😉 I immediately asked SA what color options are available and to my surprise the collection had All Fired Up included.

MAC All Fired Up-Magic of the Night Collection for Holiday 2015-swatch

I will describe MAC All Fired Up as Bright Reddish Fuchsia but it does not have strong blue undertone. It looks warm on application. All Fired up is a permanent shade of the Retro Matte Collection. Being this member of Retro Matte Collection, it is super matte and dry. But it does not tug much on lips and application is quiet smooth as compared to Ruby Woo. I have been wearing this color a lot lately and absolutely love everything about it. It stays on me for 7+ hours and leaves a pink stain behind. All you need to make sure to properly exfoliate and moisturise the lips before application.

Pros:

  1. Limited Edition absolutely gorgeous Packaging.
  2. Beautiful Reddish Fuchsia color that would suit mostly all Skin tones.
  3. Member of the Renowned Retro Matte collection by MAC.
  4. Intense Pigmentation.
  5. Smooth Application.
  6. Long Lasting.
  7. Matte Finish.

Cons:

  1. Make the lips dry after few hours of wear.
  2. Limited Edition Packaging, however you will get MAC All Fired Up in black case packaging anytime as this is included in Permanent range.

Rating: 4.5/5. Everything is good about this Lipstick, just make sure to take care of the dryness aspect. Properly exfoliate and moisturise the lips before application and keep dabbing the lip balm every few hours.

L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Collection Exclusive Lipstick-JLo’s Delicate Rose

L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Collection Exclusive Lipstick-JLo’s Delicate Rose

MRP: Rs. 995

Today I am going to share the first impression and my look with newly launched L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Collection Exclusive Lipstick-JLo’s Delicate Rose.

JLo’s Delicate Rose is the only color I liked in newly launched L’Oreal Paris Pink collection. Rest of the colors were too pale for me, they will look good on whitish Skinned beauties only as far as I can envision. After swatching the entire range, I am little disappointed. If we compare the Pink Range with Red Range, this range is so BLAH 🙁

You can view the swatches of Entire Pink Range here. I had previously reviewed one of my most worn shade from Pure Red collection, Pure Garnet. You can read the review here, if you wish to.

First Impression: If we talk about the first impression about the entire range, I will say that I am not Happy about it. But if we talk about JLo’s Delicate Rose specifically, then I will say that it is a perfect color chosen by the DIVA. I am liking it so far. L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Collection Exclusive Lipstick-JLo’s Delicate Rose has subtle shimmer/silver sheen to it, the shimmer does not show on Lips but if you look closely you can clearly see the shimmer on Bullet. With Shimmer or without shimmer, it does not matter much to me. JLo’s delicate rose is a beautiful berry pink lip color, it has smooth texture and the finish is soft matte. The formula does not seems to be drying, however I am yet to test it by wearing it for long duration. I will wear this for few days and then share the detailed review with you. Till then, enjoy the pics ladies 🙂

BTW, the eye liner in pic, I have applied it with a brush from newly bought eye basics Kit by Real Techniques. I loved the application and the wing I achieved…. yayyyy. Well…. more on this Laterrrrr 🙂

L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Pinks: All Swatches

L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Pinks: Swatches

MRP: Rs. 995

L’Oreal Paris has recently launched its Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Pinks Range in India. It consists of 7 Colors If I go by the Picture Sonam Kapoor has posted on her Instagram account, however I came across only 6 shades when I visited the counter of L’Oreal Paris at TGIP, Noida. So I did the quick swatches and bought the Collection Exclusive by JLo (my girl crush).

Quick Overview: 

Pinks are the new reds! Drench yourself in the velvety richness of delicate pinks, with our new star studded collection. Ensured to give your lips a finish that is textured like velvet matte, these are the pinks tailored for every woman.

L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Star Pinks have pure pink pearls blended with velvet pigments, to give a soft finish that boasts of sophistication inside out. The finely blended micro minerals make sure that you stand out and be the show stopper, wherever and whenever, and make a statement.

Additional Information: Formulated by experts, get that perfect pink, handpicked by the divas, coz there always is that one pink, which is just meant for you. You’re worth it.

Here are the pictures I clicked at the counter:

As you can see from the swatches, the pigmentation of all the shades are not that great. I don’t even like the colors except JLo. Let’s see how JLo looks on me, fingers crossed. I will post a look soon.

Chambor Orosa Lip Perfection 502 Poppy Red: Review and Swatch

Chambor Orosa Lip Perfection 502 Poppy Red

MRP: Rs. 995
Shelf Life: 3 Years

Chambor Orosa Lip Perfection 502 Poppy Red

Chambor Orosa Lip Perfection 502 Poppy Red-packaging

Chambor has launched Orosa Range last year which comprises of:

OROSA LIP PERFECTION LIPSTICKS

OROSA SCULPTING EYESHADOW

OROSA SKIN FUSION FOUNDATION

OROSA DEFINING 10H EYE LINER PENCIL

You can find more info about these on their official Website: http://chambor.com/orosa.asp

Chambor defines these Lipstick as “A Lipstick that rejuvenates, moisturizes and smoothens the lips”. Its Triple Firming Action restores volume and firmness while keeping your lips super soft and nourished.

Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, it visibly reduces lip creases with every application.

-No animal ingredient.
-Dermatologically tested.

Chambor has launched 24 Lipsticks in their Chambor Orosa Lip Perfection Range. I mean what a grand way to launch a new Range, they have served their customers very well…. giving them all kind of Colors, soft and moisturising texture and Luxury packaging.

Chambor Orosa Lip Perfection 502 Poppy Red-Ingredients
The Ingredients are clearly mentioned on the cardboard packaging

Chambor Orosa Lip Perfection 502 Poppy Red-carved bullet

Chambor Orosa Lip Perfection 502 Poppy Red-hand swatch

My Experience: First and the most appealing thing is Packaging, the Rose Gold packaging is to die for and the second most appealing aspect is color selection. I chose the color Poppy Red which is a dark orange shade. True to Brand’s claim the texture of the Chambor Orosa Lip Perfection 502 Poppy Red is very soft, supple and glides on lips very smoothly. The formula is one of the very best across all Drug Store brands, it keeps the lips moisturised throughout the wear time and does not settle into Lip lines. Poppy Red is a very intensely pigmented color, two swipes are enough to have the even and full coverage. Another interesting thing about this Lipstick is the shape of the bullet, the curve shape helps in precise application. You can outline the lips with the curved tip and then fill in with the other side of the tip.

I have been wearing this shade a lot lately and completely love the finish it gives. I had a wear time of 4 hours with Poppy Red, being the creamy texture the lip shade wears off easily, so a touch up is needed after meal. Summing up the Pros and Cons below for the quick recap.

Pros:

  1. Beautiful Rose Gold packaging.
  2. Ingredients are mentioned clearly on the packaging.
  3. Tangy, Orangey fragrance which goes away after some time.
  4. Smooth and supple texture.
  5. Non Drying formula.
  6. Very Forgiving on Lips- does not highlight dryness or flakes.
  7. Keeps the Lips Moisturised.
  8. Intense Pigmentation.
  9. Curve shape bullet for Easy Application.
  10. Contains SPF.

Cons:

  1. Considering the Price, I was expecting more wear time.

Rating: 4/5. I wish the wear time was long but it is worth buying. Love the Formula, texture and Color.

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Ocean Blue Review: Swatches

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Ocean Blue Review

MRP: Rs. 500

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Ocean Blue

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Ocean Blue-swatches

Description by Maybelline:

Add subtle shimmer to your eyes with Diamond Glow Eye Shadow.

  • Featuring an exclusive technology with gem-like sparkles, this eye shadow gives your eyes a beautiful glow. Easy to apply, you can accomplish the sparkling diamond effect in 4 simple steps!

    Here’s why you’ll love it:

  • Is the creamiest powder launched by Maybelline NY
  • Has exclusive technology with gem-like sparkles that do not crush
  • Give eyes a glowing diamond effect in 4 simple steps

My Experience: These quads are available in 5 color variants: Copper Brown, Lilic Mauve, Ocean Blue, Wine Pink, Grey Pink. I had Ocean Blue quad from Maybelline with me for 2-3 years now. Me and HJK bought it together mainly because of the navy blue sparkle eye shadow and believe me that is the only good thing about this eye shadow quad. Rest of the three colors are very poorly pigmented and does not show on the skin much and even if they show, they look all the same i.e. just a silver sparkle. These three colors can be used as highlighter but the staying power is not much. Well.. I don’t have much to say about this eye shadow quad so quickly summing up the Pros and Cons for you.

Pros:

  1. Beautiful Navy blue color with hint of Sparkle.
  2. Easy to apply and blend.

Cons:

  1. Only Navy blue color is good, rest all look the same on eye lid.
  2. Poor Pigmentation, needs layering.
  3. Poor staying power.
  4. Pricey considering that we are getting only two shades i.e. Navy Blue and Silver.

Rating: 2/5. You can give it a pass, only navy blue color is worth and rest three are very blah.

New Launch: Maybelline Fit me Concealer 25 Medium Moyen- Price, Review and Swatch

Maybelline Fit me Concealer 25 Medium Moyen

MRP: Rs. 500 for 6.8ml

Shelf Life: 2 Years

Maybelline Fit me Concealer 25 Medium Moyen-packaging Maybelline Fit me Concealer 25 Medium Moyen-price and shelf life Maybelline Fit me Concealer 25 Medium Moyen-review

Today I am reviewing the second product from Maybelline Fit Me Range which is a Concealer in shade 25 Medium Moyen. Previously I have reviewed the foundation from this range, you can read the review here.

There are only 3 shades of Concealers available in this range:

  1. 10 Light Leger.
  2. 20 Sand Sable.
  3. 25 Medium Moyen.

For More details you can review the official website: http://www.maybelline.co.in/catalog/product.aspx?prdcode=P5020612&catcode=F1_Concealer

Maybelline Fit me Concealer 25 Medium Moyen is the darkest color option available in this range. I am shocked to see that Fit Me Range does not have any concealer for deep skinned beauties, how disappointing is that. Maybelline is such a popular brand among Indian ladies due to its wide variety of products and affordable range. So it is a bit strange to see them launching a range where they have missed such a larger segment of Medium to Deep Skin tone.

Maybelline Fit me Concealer 25 Medium Moyen-hand swatch

My Experience: Maybelline Fit me Concealer 25 Medium Moyen is a very lightweight and moderately pigmented concealer. It covers the light to medium spots and scars very well but for covering the very dark spots/scars you may need to Layer it. It works just fine for me as I have light spots here and there on my face. The best application technique is to Dab the concealer with your fingers, do not massage it on your skin with fingers or swipe with a brush, it will loose its pigmentation and won’t cover the marks. It sets very quickly and does not look cakey. 

If I compare Fit Me Foundation, Concealer and Pressed Powder, I will say that Concealer is the one item that I will recommend highly from this range. I am summing up the Pros and Cons below.

Pros:

  1. Very Sleek and handy Packaging.
  2. Lightweight texture.
  3. Nice formula, the consistency is neither thick nor runny.
  4. Moderately pigmented.
  5. Can be Layered up to intensify the coverage.
  6. Sets quickly.
  7. Does not highlight the dry patches.
  8. Blends into the skin nicely and does not look Cakey.
  9. Gives a natural finish.
  10. Good Staying power, I had it on me for 5-6 hours.

Cons:

  1. Poor Color Selection- only 3 shades are available.
  2. No Color available for Medium to Deep Skin tones.

Rating: 4/5. One mark deducted for Poor color selection available in this range.

Below are the pictures where I have used all the three products(Foundation, concealer, Pressed Powder) from Maybelline Fit Me Range. Both of the pictures are clicked in Natural Light.

Gradation look with Smudger

My Review: I have posted the Swatches of Maybelline Colorsensational in my previous post. I bought the shade RED1 which is a beautiful Maroon color. The texture is soft and creamy. RED1 is very pigmented, just one swipe gives the enough color coverage, in hand swatch below I swiped the crayon 2-3 times and the coverage is amazing. The smudger/blender provided at the end is very effective to smudge the color, I am mentioning the hand swatch below wherein I have smudged the color with smudger and it went very smoothly. I tried the Gradient look by applying the Maybelline Lip Gradation RED1 at the centre of the lips and then smudged it finely/smoothly across Outer line of the lips. The blender/smudger is very Good in Quality and helps in achieving the gradient look effectively. Once the color is set on lips it stays for longer period of time, I had a wear time of 5-6 hours.

Pros:

  1. Innovative Concept-One of a Kind product in Indian Market.
  2.  Nice and Handy Packaging.
  3. Beautiful color selection available.
  4. Smooth texture.
  5. Matte Finish.
  6. Intense Pigmentation.
  7. Blender/Smudger does its jobs perfectly.
  8. Good Staying Power.

Cons:

  1. Formula is bit on dry side but that is an obvious thing in Matte Lip shades.

Rating: 4.5/5. I am enjoying wearing it and loving the Gradient look it gives. Highly Recommend it 🙂

My Experience:
Ever since Maybelline launched its Fit me Range in India, beauty bloggers are raving about this collection. I bought three products from this range, Foundation, Concealer and Pressed Powder.

Maybelline Fit me Range-Foundation-concealer-pressed powder

Today I am going to review Maybelline Fit Me:Matte+Poreless Foundation 310 Sun Beige for Normal to Oily Skin. I got it two weeks back and used it 4-5 times ever since. Maybelline has defined it as Poreless and Matte, two of the most important qualities I look in a foundation before making the purchase. I have super oily T-zone and open pores on my cheeks, near nose area so this product got me very excited and true to its claim it does hides the Pores not completely but CONSIDERABLY. It feels very lightweight and provides the medium coverage, you can build the coverage by layering the foundation and it does not feel cakey at all. I love the finish it gives, so soft and clean look. I got the shade 310 Sun Beige and it almost matches my skin shade and so far I am happy with the output I am getting. But the real test will be in summer when my skin will be super oily so I will again update the result. For now, I am summing up the Pros and Cons below:

Pros:

  1. Modest Price Tag.
  2. Light weight texture.
  3. Perfect formula, neither too thick and nor runny.
  4. Very Easy to Work with and sets quickly but leaves the enough room for Blending properly. Best application technique is by brush or sponge.
  5. Good coverage.
  6. Can be layered to give Medium to high coverage.
  7. Does not look Cakey.
  8. It does hides the pores up to some extent.
  9. Flawless and Matte finish.
  10. Good budget option for Oily Skinned beauties.

Cons:

  1. Pump dispenser is missing.
  2. Open and wide mouth often leads to excess pouring of foundation.
  3. It does not hide the Pores completely.

Rating: 4/5.

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon: Uptown Girl 04: Review and Swatches

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon: Uptown Girl 04

MRP: Rs. 599, bought online from Nykaa.com

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon-Uptown Girl 04

Lately I am finding myself reaching out to Faces products frequently. They too are not leaving any stone unturned to capture the Indian Market. I will be reviewing a series of products from Faces so watch-out for my upcoming posts, you can see the previously reviewed Faces Ultime Pro Starry Matte Lip crayon Obsession ….We really liked it.

Lets jump to the review now.

The pictures below will give you a clear idea of the Packaging. My only complaint for the Packaging is same that we mentioned in Faces Ultime Pro Starry Matte Lip crayon Obsession , the transparent plastic cap seems to be very delicate and may crack with slight mishandling.

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon-Uptown Girl 04-packaging Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon-Uptown Girl 04-bullet

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon Uptown Girl 04 is PINK in color with hints of Golden Shimmer here and there. Closeup of the hand swatch below will show you the the color perfectly, isn’t it Gorgeous 🙂

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon-Uptown Girl 04-swatch

My Review:

I wore it to my Friend’s wedding and tried few looks with it as well. One of the look I will be showing below. I am more comfortable with Eye Shadow Crayons rather than powder eye shadows, they are so easy to apply and blend. These Eye Shadow Crayons are hugely popular in Makeup Newbies. The texture of the eye shadow is Super Creamy which does not set instantly hence leaves you with the enough time to blend it perfectly. Once it is blended properly, it sets completely and does not budge at all. I had a wear time of 6-7 hours without any Primer underneath. Listing the pros and cons below.

Pros:

  1. Color coded Packaging for Easy recognition.
  2. Beautiful Pink color with hint of Shimmer, perfect for Party Season.
  3. Creamy texture.
  4. Easy to Blend.
  5. Long Lasting.
  6. Highly Pigmented, 1-2 swipes are enough to build the color.

Cons:

  1. The transparent plastic cap seems to be very delicate and may crack with slight mishandling.
  2. No Sharpener provided, Brand could have provided the sharpener like they did with Faces Ultime Pro Starry Matte Lip crayon

Rating: 4.5/5

Punjabi Jutti-peppytoes-Kamla Nagar

I am a big Fan of Punjabi Jutti, no matter how many I already have…I go weak on my Knees at the sighting of  an eye catching and Unique Piece, specially the hand made ones.

During my recent trip to Stelatoes Kamla Nagar, Delhi, I spotted these beautiful embroidered Juttis. The Pink color against the backdrop of leather and little hints of Orange here and there really made me go GAGA over these, and the Ghungroos were Cherry on top.

MRP: Rs. 1,100

Some may find the price high but considering the work, attention to detail and clean design…I think this is a fair deal. These Punjabi Jutti have cushioned base which adds to the comfortability aspect. The fit is perfect for me, I chose the size 37.

Leaving you all with the Pics of these Gorgeous pair of Shoes. Are you too a fan Of Punjabi Jutti, I would love to hear your thoughts 🙂

ALDO Deasen Silver Belly Shoes

ALDO Deasen Silver Belly Shoes

ALDO Deasen Silver Belly Shoes-Review

ALDO is a private Canadian corporation that owns and operates a worldwide chain of shoe and accessory stores. ALDO Shoes were founded by Aldo Bensadoun in 1972. The Company is based at Canada.

This was my first purchase from this brand, I wanted well cushioned, edgy but flat shoes that I can wear during Winter Season(Metro travelling is making it difficult for me to wear any type of heels). You know how flats have become so repetitive design wise now a days, same design, same cut, same finish….BORINGGG.

MRP: Rs. 5490, I got it at 3294(40%) from Jabong.com

Here is the Link in case you would like to check, I liked the multi colored ones but my size was not available. The USP for me was the pointed tip shape (it is advisable for Plus size girls to wear pointed shoes, it gives the slimming effect) and very aesthetically placed stones on the tip.

http://bit.ly/1ZIhPBJ
http://bit.ly/1IKOMJp

My Experience: As usual I was very impressed with the Delivery of Jabong, they delivered it in perfect condition after a day. These ALDO Deasen Silver Belly Shoes are super comfortable, very well cushioned and I am glad I purchased them. Leaving you all with the pictures…Did you liked them?

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil: Review

MRP: Rs. 1,400

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-packaging MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-packaging1 MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-review1

Today I am reviewing the newest addition in my Makeup Collection, the one I have been eyeing for sooooo long. Well, technically I had been looking for MAC Heroine Lipstick since an year and it was always OUT OF STOCK but then one fine day the SA said they don’t have the lipstick but Lip pencil is available. I wasted no time and picked up this beautiful Color and walked out of the store with a BIG SMILE on my face.

The pictures below will give you clear idea of the packaging. The color coded end is really helpful in recognizing the Liner in my Makeup stash.

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-packaging2 MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-bullet

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil-swatch

My Experience:
The color of MAC Heroine Lip pencil is BRIGHT PURPLE, you won’t come across this color easily in other Makeup brands and that makes it so appealing to me. It is one of that unique shade which gets you many compliments whenever you wear it.

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil’s texture is neither creamy nor dry but there is slight tugging and pulling during application, the beauties with severe dry lips please stay away from this. I have to properly moisturise and prep my lips before the application. The Lips pencil settles very well on the lips and transfers very less.

After wearing this for few hours I have to put lip gloss or balm on the top to minimize the puckering it causes.It is not hydrating so addition of lip balm on top will take care of that. I will sum up the Pros and Cons below.

Pros:

1. Unique shade.
2. Matte Finish.
3. Insanely Pigmented.
4. No Bleeding
5. Minimal Transfer
6. Precise Application

Cons:

1. The formula feels dry after few hours of wear time.
2. Not an ideal formula for dry lips.
3. Sharpening leads to product wastage.

Colorbar Spotlight Illuminating Lotion-Swatch

Description by ColorbarA sheer luminizing moisturiser with special light-reflecting pigments that veils the skin in a soft, pearly glow. Enriched with ‘Hyaluronic Acid’, it keeps skin thoroughly hydrated and plumped.

Application: Colorbar advises to Apply on just-cleansed, toned and treated skin for a fabulous glow and dewy finish. Or mix with your favorite foundation for an increased glow. I mix it with foundation and apply with a brush.

My Experience:  I have oily skin in summers which behaves normal with slightly oily T-zone in Winters. I mostly go for Makeup products which gives Matte finish and controls the oil, but  in winters I tend to go for dewy finish. This is the one Makeup product which gives a very subtle glow on the face and makes you look flawless. I swear by this product, I mix it with my foundation and uniformly apply across the face with a brush. However I use it only in winters when my skin is not oily.  So I won’t recommend it for for oily skinned beauties. Other than that this product gets a thumbs up for me 🙂

Pros:

  1. Very Sturdy and beautiful packaging.
  2. The pump dispenses just the right amount.
  3. The finish is flawless, it really has all the features to compete with the high end brands.
  4. Price is reasonable considering the quantity we are getting, moreover you just need a tiny amount in one go.
  5. Gives a very natural glow on the face.

Cons:

  1. Makes the Skin oily, so not an ideal product for Oily skin.

In the picture below I have mixed Colorbar Spotlight Illuminating Lotion with Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination/Oily Skin and see how my face is Glowing. I absolutely loved it 🙂
