First Impression

All the Kiko Lip Products have such a beautiful and sturdy packaging. The kind of packaging Kiko Milano Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick 304 has, I have not see it in any other brand in India. The Lipstick has a Magnet closure which closes with a satisfying click making this lipstick an ideal option to carry in your hand bag.

The bullet shape looks weird at first but surprisingly it makes the application very easy, it glides along the lip lines very comfortably.

The color of the Kiko Milano Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick 304 is very beaituful muted pink which is perfect for everyday wear. The texture is smooth and creamy, however the formula highlights the dryness/lip flakes so it is not an ideal formula to wear on dry lips.

As i mentioned above, the Shelf life of this lipstick is a HUGE Plus for me, i mean 5 years…simply wow.

The Kiko Milano Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick 304 has a very faint Vanilla fragrance but it does not linger on for long and fades away very quickly.

I will test the Longevity aspect of the lipstick and would update the same here.

 Updated Review

So I wore this Lippi to office for two consecutive days to test out the Longevity aspect. As expected the wear time is great, I had 7-8 hours of wear time. It does fade away from the inner corner of the lips (if you have heavy meal or oily food)but nothing noticeable and worth a touch up. The color is the WINNER here, it looks so appealing and is like a visual treat to the eyes.

Rating: 4.5/5. The formula is not ideal for Dry Lips and that is a very obvious factor in Matte Lipsticks. Other than that this product is worth the Money. Beautiful color, long wearing, creamy texture and 5 years of Shelf Life…… what more you can ask for 🙂

Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel Matcha Tiramisu 19: Review

Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel Matcha Tiramisu 19: Review

MRP: Rs. 199

I am naturally drawn to all things Matte and if you are a regular reader of my blog you must have witnessed my Love for Matte Nail Paints. However I am yet to find a Matte Nail paint with a good staying power 🙁

Previously on my blog I reviewed the shade Black Cherry Pie by Nykaa but the staying power was a downer.

Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel Black Cherry Pie: Review

My Review- Matcha Tiramisu

I thought to try an another shade assuming that other shades might have good staying power. Alas.. I am disappointed again 🙁

The color of Matcha Tiramisu is so pretty, refreshing and unusual, it is very close to Army Green color. The packaging is lustful, that frosted bottle is so chick. The brush however is too wide for my liking, i wish it was little thinner.

The consistency of Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel Matcha Tiramisu is thicker than the normal nail paints. The application of first coat was very streaky and uneven but that is a very common aspect of Matte Nail Paints. The second coat however was smooth and even. In the pictures below I applied two coats of Matcha Tiramisu.

Being them Matte Nail paints, they dry quickly leaving a very beautiful Matte Finish. The only disappointing aspect is Staying Power, Matcha Tiramisu stayed on me just for 3 days. It started to chip from the tip of the nails from 4th day onwards 🙁

Leaving you all with the pics, how gorgeous the color is…. I can’t get over it 🙂

Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakme Fashion Week 2016 Inspired Look

Hello My Angels <3

As you all might have guessed by now, this look is inspired by Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Strobe and Shine look from Lakme Fashion Week 2016. I generally don’t do celebrity inspired makeup looks as it takes lot of time and preparation and obviously there is fear of comparison. But this particular look blew my mind completely and inspired me to try it 🙂

I wanted the luminous base same as Kareena’s and very pale pink lips. I am sharing below a brief tutorial by Lakme to achieve this #strobeandshine look.

I enjoyed doing this makeup look. However, I would love to know your take on it. Love or loathe? 🙂

Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel Black Cherry Pie

Initial Impression

Nykaa has recently launched their range of Matte Nail Enamels. Most of the colors in this range are muted neutral colors but I chose this dark gothic color.

The packaging is lustful, that frosted bottle looks so chick. The brush was too wide for my liking, i wish it was little thinner.

The consistency of Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel Black Cherry Pie is thicker than the normal nail paints. The application of first coat was very streaky and uneven but that is a very common aspect of Matte Nail Paints. The second coat however was smooth and even. In the pictures below I applied two coat of Black Cherry Pie. I am going to test its Longevity for 5 days and will update the review accordingly.

Lets see how this one fares.

Update………..

Final Verdict

So, its day 4 of Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel Black Cherry Pie and the picture below will explain everything 🙁 I washed my hair today morning and that is the time when my nail paint tend to chip off the most. Being this a dark color the chipped ends are very noticeable and I had to remove the nail paint in the evening. Regretfully, Black Cherry Pie didn’t completed my 5 day challenge. Nykaa Nude Nail Enamel – Caramel Macchiato 53 was much better in the Longevity aspect.

Another aspect that concerns me is the thick texture and uneven finish(first coat) which could be an issue for many.

Rating: 3/5
