MY REVIEW
Every MAC Launch gets me excited like a Child and I am an avid lover/admirer of all things MAC. I knew MAC Versicolour Stains were going to be launched soon in India but I was skeptical, doubtful and confused whether to buy them or not, mainly because I hate Glosses 🙁 I really can’t stand them. Reason: 1. They are not long wearing 2. They are poorly pigmented 3. Need quick touch-up and I am a lazy bum when it comes to reapplication of any makeup product. But the Key Claims by MAC on their official website got me excited once again. I mean a LONG WEARING LIP GLOSS or lets say STAIN…. reallyyyy…but how?? I knew then and there… I HAVE TO GET atleast one LIP STAIN from my hard earned money to try and review this beauty:)

I bought the shade LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP, Firstly because of color, Secondly because of the beautiful cylindrical packaging which shows the color through transparent panel and third because of the interesting name. Moreover if I disliked it as a Stain I have the option of using it on the top of MAC heroine Lip pencil I already have. Smarty Pants.. heh 😉

MAC Versicolour Stain Long distance relationship is a very beautiful Intense midtone violet color. The pictures above will give you clear idea of  packaging, the applicator is  great and I had no problem applying the Lip stain perfectly with it. The texture is very liquidy so I had to make sure that I take out just the right amount of product to avoid messy application. MAC Versicolour Stain Long distance relationship is supremely pigmented, i needed 2 swipes to form and even out the color. The formula of these Lip Stains is applaudable, the product clings to the lips like a pro and keep them moisturized and glossy. Gloss stayed on me for almost 4 hours and afterwards it leaves a beautiful violet stain which is fully matte. The Stain stayed as it is until i removed it with makeup remover. The color stain is actually very pigmented…. i truly applaud MAC for staying true to the claims.

To conclude, these Lips stains are actually a combination of LIP GLOSS+LIP STAIN, a very Unique product and I am glad that I invested my Money in it. I am not raving because i am a MAC Girl, I am raving because this product does what it claims. Ladies… get your hands on them before they go OUT of STOCK. However, I heard that they are going to be included in Permanent Line 🙂 Happy news, isn’t it.

Rating: 5/5.

Color
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor Addiction is a beautiful Rosy Mauve Shade which is perfect for this summer season. Infact all the 8 colours in this range are happy, summery and bright 🙂

Is it MATTE? Those who are expecting this range to be dry/fully matte(obvious fact we expect from liquid lipsticks) will be disappointed, but once you get over that fact, it is a pretty decent collection. Moreover Revlon has no where mentioned in their marketing campaign that these are Dry Matte, they have branded this range as VELVETY MATTE LIPCOLOR. So, those who are expecting to have effortless dry matte finish, DO NOT GO FOR THIS RANGE.

Formula: The Formula is creamy and moisturising. Unlike other Matte products, HD Addiction is very easy to reapply. It works like a dream 🙂 HD Addiction is insanely pigmented, just one swipe and you are good to go.

Fragrance: Oops…fragrance may be a turn off for ladies with sensitive nose. HD Addiction smells like cherry cough syrup. Honestly speaking I don’t mind the fragrance but it is really strong, so ladies firstly smell it and then buy 😉

Longevity: HD Addiction lasts really long, I had a full meal in between the wear time and there was just a slight fading from the inner corner of the lips which is not noticeable.

Does it Transfer? Yup, being this a velvety matte lipcolor, it transfers to cups and glasses whenever you drink something.

Rating: 4/5. If you get over the fact of this being not a Drying matte Liquid Lipstick, I am sure you will like it. I do 🙂 It keeps the lips soft, supple and moisturised through out the wear time. Price is a negative factor and I think it is too steep, so I do not see myself buying other colours from this range.

This is how HD Addiction looks on me.

How to Create Ombre Lips?

Hello My Angels 🙂

The Ombre trend firstly started with Hair and slowly expanded its Horizon. Ombre Lips were brought into Fashion by famous Makeup Artists during Runway shows and there is no looking back ever since. Beauty Bloggers all over the world tried and loved this trend. I am their latest fan, to me…Ombre Lips are very creative and bold.

If you are a woman of today and want to experiment with your Lip Makeup, then Ombre Lips is a Trend you will not regret following. It is bold, sexy and fun 🙂

I am going to explain in Steps, how I achieved this look.

  1. Applied Maybelline Lip Gradation RED1 all over the lips with light hand.
  2. Smudged the color using Lip Blender/Smudger. I have used cushion blender provided at the end of Maybelline Lip Gradation RED1.
  3. Used MAC Dark Out Lip Liner at the middle of the lips. The key to this look is to use Lighter shade all over the lips and dark shade at the center of the Lips.
  4. Smudged the Dark color with Blender/Smudger at the center of the lips.
  5. Make Sure there are no harsh lines between the two colors, smudge the lines(if any) to give an effect where you can’t figure out where the Lighter one ended and the darker one started.
  6. In the end I just Pat Clinique Cola Pop at the center just to give a bit of Shine. However you can Skip this step if you want, it is not very crucial, I just didn’t want Matte look at the center.
  7. Voila!! Perfect looking and Very Easy to Create Ombre Lips 🙂

Statement Necklace!!! My Obsession

Hello My Angles 🙂

I remember when I was little I used to try my Mom’s Jewellery whenever I got the chance. Her collection of Jewellery was exclusive and I was in awe of everything. One of the piece was an exclusive Necklace with Pearls encrusted in it…I have never seen anything like that… even till now. I guess that Necklace has induced in me my love for Pearls and Statement Necklaces.

Yesterday I went on Dinner with Mr. Husband at newly opened DLF Mall Of India, Noida. They had street bazaar theme going on at the Ground floor where various vendors had Setup their Stores. I was navigating between stalls and stopped at the counter of a stall having beautiful and exclusive collection of Earrings and Necklaces. This copper colored necklace caught my eye and I was instantly hooked to it.

I was really eager to share it with you all So planned a look on copper theme. I have used a Copper eyeshadow and Golden Glitter Stackables by Faces on top of it. Lipstick is MAC All Fired Up, you can read the review of it below:

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

I am mighty please with how this look turned out. This necklace is so versatile and beautiful that I can pair it with any color and I am sure it will upstage any outfit.

Leaving you all with the pics 🙂 Love you- PJK

My Experience

Today I am going to write about my newly purchased Shoes. I have extremely sweaty feet and in summers I tend to go for Strappy sandals or trendy chappals. Obviously you can’t wear Chappals everywhere 🙂 so…I have been looking for sandals with a 1-2inch platform heel, soft and cushioned sole which would be comfortable and provides a firm grip to the feet (I am super clumsy). So I headed to www.jabong.com to check if they had something which matches my requirement. After browsing few pages I came across these Miss Bennett London Sandals…

Platform heel –  check
Strapy Sandals- check
Stone Emblished Strap- Cherry on the cake.
Soft Footbed/Sole– By looking at the images I was not very sure about it but the moment I tried them on, all my doubt’s ended then and there. Footbed is really soft and well cushioned. The synthetic material of the straps is so soft that I didn’t experienced any kind of shoe bite at all which is very rare for my sensitive skin. These Miss Bennett London shoes comes in two colors..green and black. I chose green one.

The only downside is poorly/loosely placed Stone embellishments.  Stones are held together by thin metal plates/holders which are very poor in quality, I wore these shoes twice and noticed that one BIG stone is missing 🙁
With the missing Stone and hollow gap, I am not sure I will ever be going to wear these Shoes to any event 🙁

Other than that these Sandals are comfy and nice but I am disappointed.

Did this ever happened to you?

                                                                                   MY REVIEW

In my previous post (mentioning the Link below) I shared a look using Lakme Absolute’s newly launched Illuminating collection. As far as I can remember this is the first time Lakme has launched an eyeshadow Palette, they do have quads but not Palettes. During this Lakme Fashion Week, Lakme Absolute has launched this thoughtful range which I am sure many will Love.

New Launch- Lakme Absolute Illuminate Collection- Swatches

I am going to review Lakme Absolute Illuminate Eyeshadow Palette GOLD today. All the shades in this Palette are very subtle and suitable for Indian Skin tones. They do have hint of little shimmer particles which are hardly noticeable once you apply them on Lids. The texture is soft and very easy to apply however you need to layer them many times so as to show the color on lids properly. I am disappointed with the pigmentation aspect, other than that it is a very decent eyeshadow palette. There is less to no fallout and beginners will find this palette very user friendly. Moreover all the colors are gorgeous and perfect for day time as well as evening functions.

Regarding the Longevity aspect, I had a wear time of 6-7 hours with primer underneath. I have oily eyelids so Primer is must for me. The longevity may be less without a primer, however I have not tried this Palette without a Primer.

Rating: 3.5/5. Wish colors were more pigmented.

In Pics below I have used Shade 1 and Shade2. Shade2 is used in Outer Corners.
