Haul- All Things Girlie

Haul- All Things Girlie 🙂

Good Morning lovely ladies. I hope you all are enjoying the Sunday afternoon with your loved ones. I had a quiet and yummy breakfast with Mr. Hubby in the morning, it is our Sunday morning ritual to have the Breakfast together, just two of us 🙂 I cook for him his favourite, Sattu and pyaaz ka Parantha, it was yumm. Being Punjabis we love Paranthas 😉 but we have it only on Sundays. If we go our way, we will end up eating Paranthas the whole time..lol.

Shutup now you Foodie 😀

So… today I am sharing my recent Haul Post with you. I visited Shoppers Stop and Lifetyle Retail at TGIP, Noida. The main purpose of the visit was to buy the newly launched Liquid Lipsticks by MAC, which were Out of Stock as expected. They had just two shades left, one was peach and other was light purple, none of them appealed to me. My next stop was Lifestyle Retail and oh boy!! they have really amped up their accessory collection. I was drooling over the collection- ear cuffs, quirky ear rings, chokers, hair bands, bracelets, hand cuffs, hair clips, hand mirrors etc. I literally had to stop myself on spending much as I was on verge of exceeding my monthly budget reserved for Blog. Sharing the pics and price with you all. Enjoy!!

My Initial Experience: If you are a regular reader of my blog you might know that I love Glitters, I was thinking of trying out the loose pigments or glitters since long and came across these recently. The Pictures above will pretty much explain the packaging, 6 transparent jars are stacked above each other. Sparkle Dust have following pigments:

  1. Silver
  2. Golden
  3. Pink
  4. Blue
  5. Purple
  6. White

These pigments need an eye shadow base of same color to give the best results. I used Pink and Purple creamy eye shadows as base and then tap Pink and Purple loose pigments with a wet brush all over the lids.

FACES Stackables Sparkle

If you are a beginner you may find them a bit difficult to use due to their tendency of fall out, however if you will take care of few things you will master it soon.

-First thing is, use a damp eye shadow brush to pick the glitters.

-Second, tap the glitters lightly on lids, DO NOT blend the glitters, only tap it lightly.

-Third, use a creamy eye shadow as base or a gel eye liner, it would help the glitters to stick to the base.

– Dust the fallen out glitters/pigments with a clean brush.

I have also used Silver and Golden glitters on my nails.
FACES Stackables Sparkle Dust nails

The technique to achieve this is:

– Apply base coat.

– Pick the glitters with a damp brush, I have used an eye shadow brush. Place them on nails and dab lightly when     the nail polish Is still wet.

– Seal the end result with a transparent top coat.

I will reserve my verdict for now, will be using these glitters for 2-3 days and will let you know my final review. Till then enjoy the pics and my first impression.

MRP: Rs. 599

Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick Spiced Up-swatch
It is not every day that I come across a Revlon Product which I genuinely love to the core of my heart. The last time I loved a Revlon Product was from Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick Range. You can read the review here.Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick Spiced Up have all the qualities that I look in a Lipstick- Matte texture, beautiful color, long staying power and affordable price. 

Revlon has recently added 5 more colors in Super Lustrous Matte Lipsticks and one of them is Spiced Up. I will be posting the swatches of other colors soon.

My Experience:

Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick Spiced Up is a beautiful Maroon Color with dark brow undertones. It is a dark vampy color perfect for Fall season. The texture of Revlon Spiced Up is Creamy Matte and glides smoothly and evenly on Lips. I would always prefer creamy matte texture over powdery matte, one more reason to why I love this Lipstick. The formula is drying but it does not suck the moisture from the lips for atleast 5 hours, after which you may need to apply a lip balm. Spiced Up is very pigmented shade and provides full coverage in 1 swipe, you may need 2 swipes to cover and even out the color. This is one such shade which brightens your complexion instantly, the color is classy and the finish is Superb. Kudos to Revlon for giving us such a Perfect Matte Lipstick in an affordable price.

I had a wear time of 6-7 hours without the need of touch up. After long hours of wear time it started to fade away from corner and centre of the lips.

Summing up the Pros and Cons for you.

Pros:

  1. Beautiful color perfect for Fall Season.
  2. Creamy Matte.
  3. Not too drying.
  4. Superbly pigmented.
  5. Smooth Application.
  6. Long Wearing.
  7. Affordable.

Cons:

  1. Same old boring packaging. Revlon really needs to think about revamping the packaging.

Rating: 5/5. Love Love and Love this beautiful Lipstick. I will be adding more colors in my collection.

My Experience:

I Chose the shade Pinken Gold which is a beautiful Pink color with Hint of Gold. It is perfect for the occasions where you want to have little bling in your manicure but do not want over the top glitters. Pinken Gold is subtle but not boring. The consistency is runny and you need 2-3 coats for the color to show up uniformly on the nails. Pinken Gold stayed on my nails for 3 days and afterwards it started chipping from the tip of the nails. It is a beautiful color but if you are looking for a long lasting manicure then you will be disappointed.

Rating: 3.5/5

My Experience: 

Today I am going to share with you a product which I reach out to very often…Its like my saviour when I am confused on what to do with my eye makeup. By controlling the intensity you can use it for soft eye Makeup that is perfect for day wear and by intensifying the color more, you can glam up your look for a night out or a party.

The color of Lakme absolute drama stylist eye shadow crayon-Bronze is beautiful bronze with metallic sheen which would look beautiful on all skin tones. The texture is creamy and very easy to blend, you can blend it by using blending brush or with your fingers. It sets quickly but leaves enough room so that you can blend it properly. Once it is set it does not budge at all and stay put for long hours. The pigmentation is amazing..in my hand swatch below I have swiped it only once, for more intense color you can swipe it multiple times and it gives flawless finish. I wore it to several occasions such as weddings, daily look for office when I want to glam up a bit, a date, day out with friends and it didn’t disappoint me at all. I love it to the core. The longest I wore it was for 7-8 hours and the color was almost the same with slight fading. It is smudge-proof and does not transfer.

Lakme Absolute Drama Stylist Eye Shadow Crayon-Bronze-swatches

I am summing up the Pros and Cons below:

Pros:

  1. Beautiful color. Multi-purpose and fit for many occasions.
  2. Creamy Texture.
  3. Easy Application- no tugging.
  4. Easy to blend.
  5. Highly pigmented.
  6. Smudge Proof.
  7. Transfer Proof.
  8. Water Proof.
  9. Long Lasting.

Cons:

  1. Some may find price too steep for an eye shadow.

Rating: 5/5. To me it is worth the price. This product is true to all the claims made by the Brand. Moreover eye shadow crayons have made my eye makeup routine very easy and quick.

L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Star Pinks L’Extraordinaire Mat-Julianne’s Pink: Review and Swatch

L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Star Pinks L’Extraordinaire Mat-Julianne’s Pink

MRP: Rs. 950

By now all of you must be aware that L’oreal has launched its Star Pink Collection in India. I have previously reviewed JLo’s Pink and I am loving it to the Core. Today I am reviewing an another shade from this recently launched Pink collection called us Julianne’s Pink.

My Experience: The pictures below will give clear idea of how the packaging is, true to name L’oreal presented these lipsticks in beautiful Matte case.

L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Star Pinks-Julianne's Pink-black packaging

The color of L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Star Pinks L’Extraordinaire Mat-Julianne’s Pink is beautiful Pink with hint of Purple. The texture of the Julianne’s Pink is same as that of the previously launched  Loreal Color Riche L’extraordinaire Matte Lipstick, I had reviewed Marais Magenta from the same range. The texture of Julianne’s Pink is Velvety soft and creamy and feels very light like feather. The formula is hydrating which ensures that lips feel soft and supple through out the wear time.  The USP of this product is its Unique Applicator which takes the enough product at a time and helps in easy and uniform application of the lipstick. The Finish of Julianne’s Pink is glossy at first but settles into velvet matte after few hours of wear time. I had a wear time of 6-7 hours with with slight fading. Once it setts into Matte finish it does not budge at all and stays put even after eating and munching. But, it has tendency to transfer at the beginning. 

Pros:

  1. Autographed by iconic Julianne, L’Oréal Paris ambassador.
  2. Good Pigmentation.
  3. Velvety soft and creamy texture.
  4. Feels light on Lips.
  5. Hydrating formula.
  6. Unique Applicator for precise application.
  7. Long Wear time.

Cons:
1. Easily dupable, not an unique color.

Rating: 4.5/5. Totally loved it 🙂

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green: Review and Swatches

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green

MRP: Rs. 449

We have previously reviewed Faces long wear eye Pencil – Solid Black and today I am going to review an another shade from the same ranged called Forest Green. I ordered it online from Nykaa some time back and using it a lot lately, forest green is a good color option if you need a change from Routine black Eye pencils/Kajals.

My Experience:

Packaging: The Eye Pencil comes in black color with a green colored plastic cap. There is no inbuilt sharpener.

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-packaging Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-packaging1 Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-packaging closeup

Color: Very Beautiful dark green color.

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-swatch

Texture: Texture is smooth and creamy but does not crumble. It glides smoothly and provides a dark green color in one swipe.

Application: Application is ideal if you apply it with light hand, it gives the precise finish and color in single swipe. I have applied it on water line and on upper eye lids and did not found any issue with the application. In the pics below I used this Faces Forest green Eye pencil as eye shadow and see how beautiful it looks, it sets quickly but leaves enough time for blending.

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-application
Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil- Forest Green-eye swatch

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is one area where it earned brownie points, it goes opaque in single swipe. Just the single stroke is required for full color coverage.

Longevity: I had wear time of 7-8  hours with slight fading on upper eye lid. I am very impressed with the staying power, the people with hooded eyes may experience smudging but I didn’t had any problem.

Removal: You need good oil based remover to remove all the traces of this Eye Pencil.

Pros:

  1. Beautiful dark green color which is a nice change from routine black pencils.
  2. Waterproof
  3. Smudge proof
  4. Glides smoothly due to creamy texture.
  5. Highly Pigmented.
  6. Long wear time.
  7. No irritation experienced.

Cons:

  1. No sharpener provided.
  2. Need a good oil based remover to remove properly.

Rating: 5/5. It is one of those eye pencils which looks equally beautiful both on water line and upper eye lid. The color is beautiful and captivating.  Stays intact for long hours. Totally recommend it!!
