Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick Moss 004-packaging Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick Moss 004-bullet

Hello My Beauties!! How are you all? Its been many days since my last Post on Blog, I was on Vacation with my Family and was super busy. It was a much needed recreation from the same old boring Office Job Routine… Sigh…

I took a full week off and I am totally loving the time and attention of my loved ones. So.. coming to this Post, I bought this Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Shade Moss 004 last month and was testing it. I wore it to the Hot and Humid weather of Goa and trust me it is a super duper product. I use it as an eyeliner and eyeshadow both.

My Review

The first thing that caught my eye was the Super gorgeous color, I love all kind of blue eyeliners and eyeshadows so the moment I saw it I knew I have to have it. Moreover Eyeshadow Sticks have made my life super easy, they are so easy to use and the best part is you can use them as eyeliner as well 🙂

The texture of Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Shade Moss 004 is super creamy, it glides smoothly on the lids and then you can blend it with finger or a brush. It sets pretty quickly so you have to be very quick to blend it nicely.

The application at first was uneven and I have to apply it second time to cover the unevenness wherever needed. It is a very long lasting eyeshadow and does not budge once it is Set.  It doesn’t transfer to the socket line so that is a relief for people with Hooded eyes.

Pros:

  1. User Friendly Packaging.
  2. Beautiful Turquoise shade with overpowering hint of Blue.
  3. Eyeshadow twist-up Stick, very easy to use for Beginners.
  4. Soft and Smooth Texture.
  5. No Smudging.
  6. Does not transfer to the Socket Line.
  7. Long Lasting Eyeshadow, I had a wear time of around 7 Hours.

Cons:

  1. Uneven Application at first, need to layer it second time to get the even finish.
  2. Sets very quickly and leave a very little time for blending, may be an application issue for few people.
  3. Expensive, there are other Eyeshadow Crayons/Sticks available in Market with same features at less price. E.g. Faces Eyeshadow Crayons

MRP: Rs. 300

Colorbar 24 Carat Nail Lacquer-004 Pinken Gold-packaging1Colorbar 24 Carat Nail Lacquer-Pinken Gold 004 Colorbar 24 Carat Nail Lacquer-004 Pinken Gold-brush

Description by Colorbar

  • A luxurious range of Golds with a DUAL CHROME effect that envelopes your nails in 24 carat gold finish instantly.
  • Replete with intense dual-shine golden pigments, this unique range allows you to experience two complementary color tones in one go.
  • With a range of SIX shades of Gold, you are spoilt for choice and can easily find any shade of Gold that you desire.
  • The application is smooth, streak-free and single stroke. It leaves behind a unique almost foil-like liquid gold finish on your nails.
  • What’s more is that the formula has an excellent drying time along with being 3 -free, long-lasting, non-yellowing & chip-resistant.

Shades Available:

  1. Liquid Gold
  2. Coppertone Gold
  3. Antique Gold
  4. Pinken Gold

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

Colorbar Lip Pot Temptress 018-review

If you like Glossy lips but wants a good color coverage as well then the Colorbar Lip Pots are ideal for you. Today I am going to review Colorbar Lip Pot Temptress 018 which is a very beautiful Gloss Red Shade, the best thing about lipsticks that come in pots are that you can always control the intensity of the color while applying or you can always mix two colors to customize a Shade for you.

Colorbar Lip Pot Temptress 018-swatch

Colorbar Lip Pot Temptress 018 needs to be applied with a Lip Brush, the texture of the Lipstick is very smooth and glossy which makes the application very Easy.

The Formula of Colorbar Lip Pot Temptress 018 is very spot on, it does not highlights the fine lines and dry/flaky lips. Also, the formula keeps the lips moisturised and nourished.

Being this a Glossy Pigmented lipstick I had a wear time of 2-3 hours. The Downside is that it bleeds and transfers 🙁

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain- Rustic 008 review and swatches

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain- Rustic 008

MRP: Rs. 900

http://www.colorbarcosmetics.com/Kiss_Proof_Lip_Stain

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain Rustic-packaging

You can find the swatches of this entire  collection here. Colorbar has recently launched Kiss Proof lip stains. There is nothing unique about the color range except one shade which is a very beautiful earthy rust shade. The another thing which fascinated me was the Kiss proof claim which means it is a non-transferable lip stain. Lets jump to the review now:

Color: I chose the color Rustic which is a beautiful Earthy Rust shade. Below is the swatch of Rustic.

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain- Rustic-swatch

Packaging: The Lip Stains comes in a long tube with silver cap and a unique applicator which is one of a kind and makes the application super easy and uniform. The applicator takes out enough stain at a time and you need not to dip it again and again. Also, the transparent packaging makes it very easy to identify the color.

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain- Rustic- applicator

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain- Rustic-review

Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip Stain- Rustic 008-packaging

Texture: The texture is smooth and creamy and glides very easily on the lips. The texture dries too quickly after the application resulting in a complete Matte Finish. And once it is set the color does not budge at all. True to its claim, the unique formula makes this Lip stain non-transferable and kiss proof. I kissed on my hand and voila it does not transfer at all 🙂 However, being this a matte lipstick it makes the lips dry after few hours of wear time.

Application: As the applicator is long so getting the right grip for the application may be tricky for some, however i found the application very easy. Just make sure to use it with light hand.

Opacity: Oh, these lip stains are very opaque. One swipe gives the enough color coverage, however you can layer it to make the color intense.

Wear time/Experience: It stayed on me for 6-7 hours inclusive of meals and snacks. Afterwards, it starts to come off very unevenly.

Pros:

  1. Very unique beautiful Earthy Rust shade.
  2. Unique applicator which makes the application easy and even.
  3. Texture is creamy and smooth.
  4. Matte finish.
  5. Non-transferable.
  6. Color does not bleed.
  7. Very good color coverage.
  8. Enriched with Vitamin E providing antioxidant properties.
  9. Has a shelf life of 3 Years.

Cons:

  1. It Makes the lips dry after few hours of wear time.
  2. Very unforgiving on chapped and dry lips as it immensely highlights the dry flakes.

My Verdict: I am all for Matte Lip colors and i loved it 🙂

Rating: 4.5/5. I wish it had moisturizing properties.

Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick Pink Hotmail 022 review and Swatches

Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick Pink Hotmail 022

MRP: Rs. 475

Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick Pink Hotmail 022-outer packaging

http://www.colorbarcosmetics.com/Creme_Touch_Lipstick

Description:

Colorbar Crème Touch Lipstick comes with the promise of lips that are eloquent and luscious. It comes with lovely rich colours and rich in moisturizing properties making lips look fuller and creamier all day long. It has sheabutter, Vitamin E and sunscreen agents at SPF 15 level which nourish and protect your lips against UV rays. It glides on effortlessly for flawless, even coverage for that perfect pout.

Application:

Line the lips with a suitable lip liner. Press the bullet to the lips using even pressure to apply color on both upper and lower lips: To refresh and even out, press lips together. Using a lip brush gives a richer and more precise color application.

As per colorbar website this range has 41 lipsticks. Today i am going to review Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick Pink Hotmail 022.

Color: The color is bright pink, not too much of bright pink but a neutral pink. It is a perfect day time color and very wearable for office as well.

Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick Pink Hotmail 022-bullet

Packaging: The outer of the lipstick case is metallic and inner is light purple. The packaging of the lipstick makes it difficult to locate the color if you have more than one creme touch lipstick in your stash. You have to take off the cap to see the color of lipstick.

Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick Pink Hotmail 022-review

Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick Pink Hotmail 022-packaging

Texture: Texture is creamy, glossy and moisturizing.  It does not dry out lips and keeps them soft and supple. It also has SPF 15 which is an additional bonus and protect your lips against UV rays.

Colorbar Creme Touch Lipstick Pink Hotmail 022

Application: The creamy texture makes the application easy. However it is recommended to apply a matching liner first and then apply this lipstick, this way it will last long. On his own this lipstick does not survive meals and transfers a lot.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is medium to buildable. Multiple swipes will hide the lip pigmentation effectively.

Longevity: I am disappointed with the wear time, it does not survive meals or even light meals. However It stayed on me for around 4 hours without meal. It transfers a lot on cups and glasses.

Pros:

  1. Beautiful pink shade which is not too loud and perfect for daily wear.
  2. Creamy texture.
  3. Glossy finish.
  4. Buildable color coverage.
  5. It has SPF 15 which protect your lips against UV rays.
  6. Application is easy and smooth.
  7. Keeps the lips moisturized.

Cons:

  1. It does not last long. For better wear time i recommend to use a lip liner underneath.
  2. Does not survive meals.
  3. Transfers a lot on cups and glasses.

My Verdict: Well, the shade is nice and finish is glossy, both are ideal for summer season. On top of that it has SPF 15. Also, it is a perfect shade for office wear/day time. However i am disappointed by the wear time, which is a very vital aspect for me in a lipstick.

Rating: 3.5/5.

Colorbar Definer lip Liner – Creamy Nude review and swatches

Colorbar Definer lip Liner – Creamy Nude

colorbar creamy nude definer lip liner-packaging

MRP: Rs. 599

I have earlier reviewed Berry Rose, Just Coral and Mad Pink and today i am going to review one more liner from the same range. These lip liners are of awesome quality, i will call them one of the best lip liners i have tried so far.

Description on Colorbar Website:
Here comes a perfect partner for your lipstick that keeps it in place for an all day look.This waterproof magic lip wand works as a fabulous lip filler which makes a proper matte base for your lips. The innovative refined formula follows and outlines the lip contour with an adjustable coverage and does not smudge.

Application:
Extra Precise, Extremely soft, Highly Pigmented, Rich color pay-off, Full coverage.

Below is the review of Colorbar creamy nude definer lip liner:

Color: Beautiful nude color, perfect for summers.

colorbar creamy nude lip liner

Packaging: These comes in  silver sleek box packaging. The liner comes in a pencil body with black cap which has an inbuilt sharpener. The pencil has dipped end for immediate shade recognition. The plus point is built in sharpener, you need not to worry about carrying a one separately.

Texture: As the name specifies creamy nude is the creamiest of all the liners i have tried so far of this range. The formula does not dry the lips at all and keep them soft and supple. However in summers the creamy texture tends to the breakage of tip while sharpening or applying.

colorbar creamy nude 006 definer lip liner

Application: Application is smooth with Creamy nude definer lip liner, it works smoothly on lips and there is no pulling and tugging. Being this a creamy textured lip liner it is advised to apply it with very light hand to avoid tip breakage.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is good and one swipe gives the enough color coverage. However you can increase the coverage with multiple swipes and it won’t look cakey at all.

Longevity: The creamy nude definer lip liner stayed on me for 6-7 hours, meals and snacks included.

Pros:

  • Built in Sharpener.
  • The pencils are longer than standard sizes available in the market.
  • Very beautiful nude color.
  • Creamy texture.
  • Non Drying formula.
  • Dipped end for immediate shade recognition.
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Long Lasting.

Cons:

  • Creamy texture tends to the breakage of tip while sharpening or during application.
  • Leads to product wastage during sharpening.
  • Some may find these liner pricey but to me they are totally worth the price.

My Verdict: I Love creamy nude definer lip liner for its color, creamy texture and long wear time. These are the best lip liners available in the market under this price range.

Rating: 4.5/5.

Below is the Swatch of Creamy Nude definer lip liner.

We hereby present Crackle Top Nail lacquer which will create amazing textured crackle looking designs to your toe and fingernails. Application Technique Apply one thick coat of the regular nail enamel, wait for it to dry.

Recommended Application:

They have three top coats under this range:

  1. Black Crackle: This is a dark black shade.
  2. Smashed Cherry: This is a red shade.
  3. Foil Blast: Foil blast is a sparkly silver shade

MRP: Rs. 499 for 15ml 

Colorbar Crackle Nail paints are a savior for lazy bones like me, who love to experiment but doesn’t have much time(sometimes efforts) to put in. This is my rescue top coat for days when i want something different and captivating on my nails. Today i am going to review the shade Foil Blast.

Colorbar Pro Crackle Top Coat

colorbar foil blast

Color: As said above, Foil blast is a beautiful silver top coat with shimmer in it. It stands out the most on dark base coat.

Brush: Brush is wide and ideal for precise application, it cover my nails in just two swipes.

Colorbar Pro Crackle Top Coat Foil Blast

Texture and Application: Hmm..texture is little thick for my liking. I find it difficult to apply, moreover it became more thick in nature over time and i have to put in a little nail paint remover to lessen the thickness. You need to be very careful while applying it, just make sure to apply thick coat once and then leave it for some time to have the crackling effect. Applying second coat is a big no as it will give a messy finish.

Dry Time: Dry time is quick, the top coat gives the crackling effect with in seconds and then sets immediately.

Longevity: It stayed on me for 3-4 days without a transparent top coat. You may apply the top coat to increase the wear time.

Colorbar crackling nail paint-foil blast

My Verdict: It is a very nice option to consider for a quick quirky Manicure, you will love it. I have been using this for a past year and so and tried it on various base coats and i must say i love it every time 🙂

Rating: 4.5/5 Just wish the texture was a little less thicker so as to give the smooth application.

Colorbar deep Matte Lip Creme Deep Rust 006 review and Swatch – New Launch

Colorbar Deep Matte Lip Creme Deep Rust 006

Colorbar recently launched Matte Lip Creme in India. Me and Mr. Husband was in waiting list for our Dinner Date at Pind Balluchi so i made a quick trip to Colorbar counter at TGIP and tried these Matte Lip Creme. There are totally 10 shades and i liked Deep Rust the most which is a lovely rusty orange shade and only orange shade in this range.

http://www.colorbarcosmetics.com/Deep_Matte_Lip_Creme

MRP: Rs. 675

colorbar matte

color-deep-matte-lip-creme

colorbar-deep-matte

Here is what colorbar says about Matte Lip Creme:

Description:

An ultra-silky, virtually “weightless” texture that unveils unexpected moussy finish with impeccable high pigmentation color for high coverage effect.

These innovative combinations of ingredients give the formula special gliding consistency to coat lips with deep colors that have a matte, yet intensely bright effect.

Features and benefits:

  • Stays up to  8hrs
  • Weightless Emollient oils for an impalpable texture
  • Silicon Polymers for a mousse and Velvet Touch
  • Jellifying Agents for moisturisation
  • Texturing Powders for smooth application
  • Paraben Fee
  • Fragrance Free

I am an Avid lover of Matte Lip shades and always prefer them over satiny and glossy lip shades, mainly because of their staying power and non-transfer property.

Packaging: The matte lip creme comes in a long tube with silver cap and doe foot applicator which makes the application very easy. The applicator takes out enough gloss at a time and you need not to dip it again and again.

colorbar-lipcreme

Color: Rusty Orange color, the only orange in this Matte Lip Creme Range. The Range has all the muted colors and not over the top dark colors, very ideal for summer season.

colorbar-deep-rust

Texture/Formula: Texture is thick and creamy and evenly spreads out on the lips. I did not had any problem with the texture during application.  The texture remains glossy after the application and settles into matte finish after an hour or so. It also keeps the lips hydrated, however as the cautionary measure i always moisturize lips before applying any matte formula.

Application: Application is very smooth and creamy texture helps the Matte Lip Creme to spread out evenly on lips. The SA at Colorbar suggested to dab the color with doe foot applicator and then press both of the lips together to spread out the color, i found this application technique helpful.

Pigmentation: As i tried all the available colors under this range, i found all of them highly pigmented and provides good color coverage in one swipe. Deep Rust too provided the full color coverage in one swipe, you can build up the color with multiple swipes or simply dab the applicator on lips and then press them together for a toned down look.

Longevity: It stayed on me for good 5-6 hours and then leaves a beautiful orange tint behind which stayed for another 2 hours. Deep Rust needs the  touch-up after the meals as color fades away from the center and corner of the lips. It also transfers little on cups and glasses.

Removal: It is very easy to remove, you can either remove it with a cleanser or water based remover.

Staining: It doesn’t stain lips at all.

Pros:

  1. Beautiful Rusty orange shade, very ideal for summer season.
  2. Smooth creamy texture.
  3. Non Drying Matte  formula
  4. Glides easily on lips, ideal for application.
  5. Sets to beautiful soft matte finish.
  6. Doesn’t dry the lips even after wearing it for long.
  7. Good staying power considering it is a soft matte lip creme.

Cons:

  1. Takes time to set into matte finish.
  2. Transfers.
  3. I wish it stayed a little longer, however being a soft matte lip creme it does its work perfectly.

My Verdict: I loved it!!from the color to the texture of it i am in love with Deep Rust and can not wait to try other shades from this range. I just wish it would have a longer wear time so that i will be having soft rusty orange lips through out the day.

doe foot applicator

Packaging: The gloss comes in a long tube with silver cap and doe foot applicator which makes the application very easy. The applicator takes out enough gloss at a time and you need not to dip it again and again.

Texture: The texture is thick, creamy and non drying. I hate sticky glosses which is why I love Colorbar true glosses, although they have thick texture but they are absolutely non sticky. They set on the lips after some time giving a semi matte finish.

swatches

Application: The doe foot applicator is ideal for application. As the texture is really good so it applies smoothly on the lips and gives an even finish. It doesn’t look patchy at all.

Opacity: This is the area which took my breath away, what a color coverage, it is fantastic!! These glosses are intensely pigmented, a very strong point which inclined me towards them at first place.

Longevity: I had a wear time of 5-6 hours after which these starts to fade.  I usually wear them with colorbar lip definers for long wear time. But they have decent longevity on their own as well. It transfers a little on the cups and glasses.

Pros:

  • Vast rang to choose from.
  • Applicator does its job perfectly
  • Thick, creamy and non drying texture
  • Non sticky and very comfortable on lips.
  • Even application on lips.
  • Superbly pigmented
  • Doesn’t transfer much on cups/glasses
  • Moisturizing
  • Good wear time.

My verdict: If you love wearing glosses this is the product for you. All I have is positive things to say about it. I love the texture, finish and wear time. I highly recommend these glosses.

COLORBAR DEFINER LIP LINERS REVIEW AND SWATCH

COLORBAR DEFINER LIP LINERS – Just Coral and Mad pink Review and Swatches

http://www.colorbarcosmetics.com/Definer_Lip_Liner

Here comes my personal favorite lip liners.  You might have checked the review of Berry Rose with my Sista PJK and here i am with 2 more shades of Colorbar lip liners, just coral 008 and mad pink 011.

MRP: Rs. 599

Few may find the price bit heavy on the pocket but believe me it is totally worth it when you will experience the good quality and long wear time. The size of these lip liners are also long as compared to others in market.

Description on Colorbar Website:
Here comes a perfect partner for your lipstick that keeps it in place for an all day look.This waterproof magic lip wand works as a fabulous lip filler which makes a proper matte base for your lips. The innovative refined formula follows and outlines the lip contour with an adjustable coverage and does not smudge.

Applications:
Extra Precise, Extremely soft, Highly Pigmented, Rich color pay-off, Full coverage.

Below is my review of these two Lip Liners:

Packaging: These comes in  silver sleek box packaging. The liner comes in a pencil body with black cap which has an inbuilt sharpener. The pencil has dipped end for immediate shade recognition. The plus point is built in sharpener, you need not to worry about carrying a one separately.

Texture: Being these matte liners the texture is not creamy and unsuitable for dry lips.  I would recommend scrubbing and moisturizing the lips beforehand.

Application: Use a lip balm underneath for a smooth application otherwise there will be lot of tugging and pulling.

Pigmentation: These lip liners are so rich in color and immensely pigmented.

Longevity: The colors are absolutely long lasting and smudge proof.

Cons:

  • Stains the lips. Need an oil based removed to completely get rid of the color.
  • Product wastage during sharpening.

My Verdict: I am impressed with the Packaging, texture and wear time of the Lipstick. To me the wear time of the lipstick is a huge plus point as i find touch-ups very cumbersome.

Colorbar Just Smoky kajal – Just Blue review and swatch

Colorbar Just Smoky kajal – Just Blue
http://www.colorbarcosmetics.com/Just_Smoky_Eye_Pencil

Colorbar Says

Description: Just Smoky Kajal gets you Glam ready in just 50 seconds. This long-lasting, multi-tasking eye pencil gives you 3-in-1 benefits of an Eyeliner, Kajal and an Eye Shadow. It helps you to achieve the mysterious smoky-eyed look which will last for up to 12 hours. It comes with a built-in smudger that is as soft as a cushion which can be used to demystify the art of smoky eyes. The intense color and matte texture of the pencil adds definition and drama to your eyes. It has waterproof property and does not transfer.

Application: After a few strokes of the soft liner along your top and bottom lashes, use the sponge smudger to blend out the color to the desired level of strength for the perfect smoky eye look.

It is available in 5 variants.

  1. Just Black
  2. Just Grey
  3. Just Green
  4. Just Teal
  5. Just Blue

Today i am reviewing the shade Just Blue.

MRP: Rs. 650

Packaging: Pencil style with kajal at one end and smudger at the other with their respective caps. The outer color of the pencil is in blue color as well which makes it easy to identify.

DSC_0785

DSC_0788Shade: Ink blue color with matte finish. The color is almost black but when you smudge it then it shows the  nice ink blue color.

DSC_0791

Texture: kajal is creamy and glides smoothly. The disadvantage of creamy formula is that the tip tends to break when you sharp it. I have personally faced this problem with this liner and it leads to product wastage which hurts when you are using the liner of this price range.

Application: Application is smooth till the time you are using it as eye liner but if you will try to use as eye shadow you would be disappointed. The formula makes the liner set so quickly leaving no room for the blending and if you try to blend once it is set then it starts to flake. I mean what is the purpose of putting smoky kajal claim when you can not blend it to achieve the desired effect.

Pigmentation: Very pigmented. One swipe gives the perfect ink blue matte color. You can intensify the color with multiple swipes.

Staying power: It stayed on my waterline for 6-7 hours with slight fading. On my eye lids it stayed for 5-6 hours and started fading afterwards which is a good wear time for me. It did transfer to my crease but that may be because I have oily lids.

Removal: You need a good oil based makeup remover to remove its traces completely.

Pros:

  • Beautiful color
  • Creamy texture, glides smoothly
  • Application is smooth if you will use as kajal or liner.
  • Waterproof, it doesn’t budge and sets with in seconds.
  • Great pigmentation
  • Long staying power

Cons:

  • Smudger is not ideal for application and not cushiony as claimed by brand.
  • Difficult to sharpen, wastage of product.
  • Sets quickly leaving no room for blending.
  • You will get patchy application if you will try to blend once it is set.
  • Not at all a smoky kajal, but if you have expertise to blend and smudge it in seconds then you may achieve desired results.
  • Expensive for a liner or kajal.

My verdict: It doesn’t live up to its claim of Smoky kajal. However it gives the best results if used as kajal or liner. Frankly speaking i am a little disappointed with colorbar, they did something innovative but it doesn’t serve the purpose it is meant for.

New Launch – Colorbar Black Fiesta Nail Lacquer

Colorbar Black Fiesta Nail Lacquer

I am a big fan of confetti nails and i am really GLADDDD that Colorbar has launched them in India. As soon as i heard about them i went to Colorbar counter at GIP Noida and tried these gorgeous top coats.

Colobar has launched these topcoats in 4 variants
http://www.colorbarcosmetics.com/Black_Fiesta_Nail_Lacquer

  1. Green Holiday
  2. Red Fete
  3. Merry Blue
  4. Masquerade

Below is what colorbar says about them.

Description on website: Join in on the fun, excitement and fanfare as Colorbar launches the next generation Graffiti Art Nail Lacquer, that fuses a variety of matte glitters in assorted shapes and sizes for a vivid paint-splatter effect. Let your imagination and creativity go wild and bring out the artist in you. Let your nails be a canvas for this top coat, which lets you break all the rules and make some of your own. Be Mad for Matte!

The application is so easy, you can use this anywhere, anytime, to create your very own nail art matching your many moods and moments. It comes in four exciting shades – Green Holiday, a wicked splatter of green matte glitters; the very festive, Red Fete; a happy-go-luck shade Merry Blue; or many shades of joy in one bottle with Masquerade.

Application: The coverage is buildable, so you can experiment with layers, use on top of other colors, or on its own to keep creating endless new forms of expression for your nails.

Clean the brush from the neck of the nail lacquer bottle and then dip it again to enjoy that extra load of matte glitters chunks on nails. Always wait for the each coat to dry before going on to the next.

I am a Matte fan, I got tempted to use this lip liner due to its matte finish and how light it feels on lips. I first came across this lip liner while me and my sister HJK was shopping for her Bridal Makeup Kit. The moment we tried it on, we knew this would definitely going to make its place in the kit. It can be used as a base lip liner or on his own. I use standalone and loves the finish it gives. Being a matte lip liner the application is not so smooth but if you apply slight lip balm underneath then you will get a smooth application. I have dry lips so I always make sure to scrub and moisturize my lips well before applying any matte lipsticks or liners.

Pigmentation(5/5): It is very pigmented and gives a very good coverage.

Packaging(5/5): Packaging is very good and these liners comes with inbuilt sharpener so that makes them very handy.

Longevity(5/5): These are longest wearing lip liners I have tried so far. On me it stayed up to 7-8 hours during which I had snacks, meal.

Application(4/5): Application is not so smooth if you have dry lips, you need to moisturize your lips beforehand.

Overall I recommend this Lip Definer/Liner!!
