My Review

I visited the Chambor Store at Shoppers Stop TGIP Mall, NOIDA and this Range was not available at that time 🙁 I rushed to LifeStyle Store and only 5 colors were available there. Luckily I got this beautiful shade called 462 which is a beautiful Rusty shade with hint of Orange. I have the similar color in Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain Rustic 008 as well which I love to the core. The only difference between the two is that the Chambor one is less Rusty with more orange Hint. Mentioning the Link of that below in case you want to check.

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain- Rustic 008 review and swatches

Packaging: Oh the packaging is totally lust-worthy and Posh. Chambor eXtreme wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick 462 comes in a transparent glass tube with black cap. The applicator has flat tip which may be a problem for people who prefer pointy tips for precise application however I encountered no such issue and had a precise application with this flat tip brush.

Texture and Formula: The texture of Chambor eXtreme wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick 462 is smooth and very light weight. This liquid lipstick sits well on the lips like a pro and does not feel heavy. Due to matte formula this lipstick does dry the lips after few hours of wear time.

Opacity: Chambor Liquid Lipstick 462 is very pigmented and goes fully opaque in single swipe, however you need two swipes to apply the color uniformly.

Longevity: I had a wear time of 7-8 hours with slight fading from the corner of the lips.

Pros:

  1. Very unique beautiful Earthy Rust shade with hint of Orange.
  2. Posh Packaging.
  3. Texture is creamy and smooth.
  4. Light and Feather like feel on lips
  5. Matte finish.
  6. Non-transferable.
  7. Color does not bleed.
  8. Very good color coverage.

Cons:

  1. Flat Applicator may be a problem for some, specially beauties with thin lips.
  2. Proper Prepping of Lips is needed before application.
  3. Drying like all Matte lipsticks but that is not a con actually, all matte lipsticks are drying. Still mentioning it for newbies.

Rating: 4/5. Love it for Color, Lightweight texture and Long Wear time.

AVON Nailwear Pro+ Saucy: Review and NOTD

AVON Nailwear Pro+ Saucy: Review and NOTD

MRP: Rs. 199
Finish: Shiny

My Review

I got this nail paint last year, it was a part of AVON’s collection called Electric Shades. The collection consisted of Electric Pink, Blue, Yellow and Purple. I got the color Electric Yellow, it is so hypnotising a color and lifts up my mood instantly whenever I wear it on my Nails.

I do not normally favour Yellow color on my nails as I feel it makes my hand dull, but that is not the case with Electric Yellow. The color goes Opaque in two coats and gives a Shiny Finish. I had a wear time of 4 days and afterwards it started fading and chipping from the tip of my nails.

Note: I didn’t applied any base coat or top coat for testing the durability aspect.

Rating: 5/5. Totally loved it, it is worth the money 🙂

L’Oreal Paris Lucent Magique 02 Fuschia Flush: Review and FOTD

L’Oreal Paris Lucent Magique 02 Fuschia Flush: Review

MRP: Rs. 850
3 color tones gives an immediate rosy, healthy glow with dimensions. Cheeks looks fuller, more radiant and youthful.
Application recommended by L’Oreal: Use the blush brush provided with the blush compact. Move the brush towards your temple to highlight the cheekbones and rub off the excess on the bridge of your nose for that even, rosy glow.

                                                                          My Take on Product

I was not a Blush person as I have a round face and blush brings the attention to my cheeks and not in a good way. After analysing and learning the application technique for applying the bronzer and blush on round face my life has become so easy and in time I started loving blushes. However I always make sure to use them light handedly so as not to draw too much attention to my cheeks.

The Packaging is the first thing I noticed, the rose gold compact is very visually appealing. On opening the Compact you will see three color strips stacked together along with an Angular brush and a mirror for Easy touch-up, as and when needed.

All the 3 color strips belong to Pink Family starting from the lightest one to the darkest. The strips are so thin that it would not be possible to pick just one color with the brush, so you can move in the brush across all three strips to pick the color. The Lightest color is very good for Highlighting the cheek bones and eyebrow area, I use my finger to pick and apply the lightest shade as highlighter. All the three blushes contain light shimmer and illuminating particles which gives a very subtle glow to the face.

These blushes are supremely pigmented and the texture of the product is very soft, so you have to be extra careful while picking the color with a brush. My advise is to pick the tiny bit of color and apply on cheeks with a very Light Hand and then build the color as you like.

Rating: 5/5. These blushes are very pigmented and Long Lasting, I have a wear time of 7-8 hours. Best is to pair with Pink and Nude Lipstick.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams Review: Addis Ababa, Prague and Monte Carlo

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams Review: Addis Ababa, Prague and Monte Carlo

MRP: Rs. 750. I guess the price has been revised as last year I got Monte Carlo at Rs. 570 from Sephora. 
Texture: Creamy
Formula: Moderately Drying
Finish: Matte
Availability: At Sephora Stores and online at Amazon India: http://amzn.to/1PtzdCi

NYX Liquid Lipsticks-Addis Ababa-Prague-Monte Carlo NYX soft matte lip cream-Addis Ababa-Prague-Monte Carlo NYX soft matte lip cream-Addis Ababa-Prague-Monte Carlo-brush applicator

My Experience:

These are neither lip gloss nor lipsticks. These lip colors are one of a kind and you will feel them silky smooth on your lips. Its been an year since I am using Monte Carlo and I am truly deeply and madly in love with the color, texture, staying power and its feather like feel on lips. I was looking to buy other colors as well but they were never available in Sephora, they are the most FAST SELLING item in Sephora. Anyway I got Addis Ababa and Prague NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams from a local store here and been wearing them quiet a lot as these two shades are perfect for summers. Below are the Swatches of all three shades:

NYX Liquid Matte Lipstick-hand swatches
From Left To Right: Monte Carlo, Addis Ababa and Prague

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Addis Ababa: Addis Ababa is fuchsia pink color with blue undertones. Perfect color for summers and daytime look.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Prague: Prague is plum shade, again a perfect shade for summers and daytime look.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Monte Carlo: Monte Carlo is a berry tone red color. Perfect for evening look with smoky eyes.

NYX soft matte lip cream-Monte Carlo-review

The pics will give you a clear picture of packaging, the sponge applicator is very user friendly and gives very even application on lips.  The texture is very smooth and glides easily on lips. The formula can be an issue for the girls having dry lips as it accentuates the fine lines/dry patches and makes the lips dry after 4-5 hours of wear time. These soft matte lip creams do not feel heavy on lips, a fact that is such a PLUS for me as I do not like Lipsticks or Lipgloss that feel heavy on lips. The most POSITIVE ASPECT is the Finish, NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams have Satin Matte Finish which is best in all the Liquid Lipsticks I have tried so far. I am quickly Summing up all the pros and cons here.

Pros:

  1. Sleek Packaging which is easy to carry and colored tube helps in Easy Recognition of Color.
  2. Lightweight and Creamy Texture.
  3. Glides Smoothly on Lips.
  4. The applicator provides a precise finish and is very easy to use.
  5. Highly Pigmented, one swipe covers the lip perfectly.
  6. Long wearing, provides 6-7 hours of wear time.
  7. Survives the meals and snacks, you may need little touch up around the corner and middle of the lips.
    Gives a nice glow to the face.
  8. These colors will suit most of the Skin Tones.
  9. Touch-up and Re-application is easy as these does not get patchy.
  10. The Formula is not immensely dry.
  11. Does not Transfer on Cups/glasses.

Cons:
1. Not an ideal formula and texture for Severe dry lips. You need to exfoliate your lips and moisturize them before the application.
2. Accentuates the Lip Lines after few hours of Wear time.

My Verdict: 4.5/5. I am totally in Love with these Matte Lip Creams and Recommend all Makeup lovers to atleast try one shade from this range. I can guaranty that you will love them.  However, the Beauties with severe dry and chapped lips are advised to stay away from these Lip creams.

Final Review:

So, like I said above that I will be testing the drying aspect and Wear time of this beautiful shade. I wore Aim to Please to Office yesterday and today and I must say that I am MIGHTY PLEASED with the wear time. It survived the lunch with slight fading around the inner corner of the lips which is common for all lipsticks that I wear, other than that it stayed intact. Being this a Matte Lipstick, it definitely makes the lips dry after long hours of wear. I would particularly applaud the beautiful color this lipstick has, the color gives a very sleek, muted and sophisticated feel to your whole look. I would totally recommends this to the Office Goers, this is a perfect nude shade to rock daily.

Summing up the Pros and Cons below:

Pros:

  1. Very Beautiful and wearable color, perfect for daily use.
  2. User Friendly and Easy to carry packaging.
  3. Glides easily on Lips making the application super easy.
  4. Matte Finish.
  5. Long Wear Time.
  6. Perfect Nude Shade- It does not make my face look dull unlike few other nude lipsticks I have tried in past.

Cons:

  1. Drying- makes the lips dry after few hours.

Rating: 4.5/5

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour-HOT SALSA

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour-HOT SALSA
MRP: Rs. 325

Description by Maybelline:

New Super Stay 7 Days is a gel nail colour that delivers seven days of flawless, chip free colour for the perfect at home manicure that lasts.

Why You’ll Love It

Gel resin formula for longwear.
Enriched with Calcium, Iron and Silica for strength.
Special full-fit brush to sweep on the perfect dose of colour.

For Best Results

1. Apply a clear base color to make your nail color last longer.
2. Use the curved brush to a thin layer of colour leaving a small space at the base of the nail.
3. Let dry before applying a second coat slightly thicker than the first coat.
4. Finish with a single layer of clear top coat to extend your manicure.

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour-HOT SALSA-packaging Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour-HOT SALSA-brush

My Experience:
Indian Beauty Market has very limited options for Gel Nail paints so when I heard that Maybelline has launched Gel Nail Colours I was very eager to try them. What intrigued me the most was the claim of a 7 day gel nail colour. Price was a downer for me so I picked just one to see how true is their claim of “seven days of flawless, chip free colour for the perfect at home manicure that lasts.”

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colours comes in a solid rectangular glass bottle, the surprise element of the packaging is the curved and wide angled brush. Sally Hansen nail paints usually have this kind of wide brush and I totally love them as they give a very precise application and covers the nail bed in just two strokes.

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour Hot Salsa is a very beautiful Coral shade. The range has total of 20 colour options available online consisting of pastels and bright colours. The consistency of the Nail Paint is thick, however it does not take long to dry. This range do offer Gel like formula but it does not offer the gel like finish we get from Professional Gel Nail Paints. I got opaque finish in just 2 coats, I have deliberately missed transparent base and top cost as I wanted to test the 7 day claim truly.

I wore it for 6 days and it started chipping from the tip of the nails after 5th day, but it was nothing very noticeable. With its long wear time and quick dry formula, I am loving it to the core. Totally Recommend it 🙂

Rating: 4.5/5

As I shared in my recent Haul Post, I bought two pair of ear rings from ToniQ accessories. What really caught my eye was the design and impeccable finish, if you closely see the finish you will admit that the earrings look way more exclusive than the price they have been offered at.  I am certain that I will be adding few more pieces from TaniQ, next on my list is Ear Cuffs.

Leaving you all with the pics, would love to hear your thoughts on them.

BTW, you can buy TaniQ accessories from LifeStyle Retail Outlets and online as well.
