REVIEW OF PLUM GOODNESS BRIGHT YEARS- AGE SPECIALISTS RANGE


New launches in Skincare never excites me and so whenever any brands coming out with skincare products one after another I hardly buy and try.
Because skin care is something in which I trust only a few brands, among which one brand is
PLUM GOODNESS.



FEW OF MY VIDEO FROM PLUM GOODNESS ARE BELOW:-


Today I am here to review another bunch of new launches of skincare from PLUM GOODNESS and it is their BRIGHT YEARS-AGE SPECIALISTS RANGE.

"Specialist skincare designed for ageing skin. Loaded with powerhouse botanical actives like plant stem cells, amino acids, and AHAs. Smartly formulated at the goodness labs."




Among the entire range, I picked up the following:-

  • Bright Years All-Day Defence Cream SPF 45 | PA+++
  • Bright Years Under-Eye Recovery Gel
  • Bright Years Restorative Overnight Creme

Bright Years All-Day Defence Cream SPF 45 | PA+++:-

 
Price:- RS.875/-
Available:- https://plumgoodness.com/collections/bright-years-age-specialists/products/bright-years-all-day-defence-cream-spf-45-pa



The all-day cream comes in a pump bottle for which it is very handy and easy to carry anywhere. The cream is little thick in texture for which you need only one tiny drop for your entire face. The cream creates a light white cast on your face making it look brighter. Now, this factor will work great on people who match their skin tone with the cream (I mean fair people) whereas wheatish or little dark complexion can see a white cast on their face if they use this cream. Now, this white cast may vary from person to person. If you sweat a lot it will vanish fast but if you don't sweat a lot then get ready to deal with that white cast. On my skin, it feels like brighten up my skin tone as I match with the cream (luckily). It is non-greasy and easily absorbed in the skin. Perfect for dry skin people. Nothing special about this cream. All I can say it suits my skin as I don't breakout while using it.



Bright Years Under-Eye Recovery Gel

Price:- Rs.925/- for 15ml (it is quite expensive)
Available:- https://plumgoodness.com/collections/bright-years-age-specialists/products/bright-years-under-eye-recovery-gel


The under eye cream comes in a small pump bottle which stopped working from the second day of my use. Next, the cream is light in texture and it is light pink in color. The cream is actually gel based kind of formula for which it is easily absorbed in my skin creating a smooth under area instantly. So this cream can act as pre moisturizing of under eye area before makeup. But again I can't see any huge change even after using the entire bottle. So definitely it doesn't work the way I wanted. The folds/wrinkles under my eyes are still enjoying the summer!





Bright Years Restorative Overnight Creme:-

 
Price:- Rs.1125/-
Available:- https://plumgoodness.com/collections/bright-years-age-specialists/products/bright-years-restorative-overnight-creme

The cream is light pink in color and very light in texture. One just needs one tiny drop of this cream for the entire face. If you apply more you might end up looking like a greasy pan. Anyways the cream is quite moisturizing. But I haven't seen any drastic change in my skin after using it for two months. Although I don't have any skin problems except dryness which is sorted well by this cream. Otherwise, if you expecting some miracle from it then don't buy it.




Overall the entire range is a hit and miss kind off for my skin and so am really confused with this range. I was expecting a lot from Plum after their awesome hair care range but I left with disappointment. Thus leaving my honest review for you all to decide.

So that's all for today, see you in my next post.

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF MAC LIPSTICK "HOT LIKE SALSA"



"Going back to old blogging days are not easy now. Being busy always with youtube channel nowadays I hardly get time to sit down and write. So from now on my reviews will be short and simple as people hardly read blogs nowadays as they are more interested in watching videos. And few visit blog just for swatches (which I love to click). My addiction to product photography will remain to continue in my blog with a little bit of write up about it :)"

Today's post is all about MAC LIPSTICK "HOT LIKE SALSA".

PRICE:-RS.1650/- for 3g.
AVAILABLE:- MYNTRA.
NOT LAUNCHED IN INDIA

 MAC LIPSTICK "HOT LIKE SALSA" is a neutral red matte lipstick with a pearl finish. The lipstick is medium pigmented. As it has pearl finish so it bleeds a bit. The feathering of lipstick can be controlled with a lip liner. The finish of this lipstick is little slippery so pressing a bit more than usual might melt the lipstick on your lips. The lipstick stays pretty 5-6 hours on my lips and with lipliner, it stays almost 7-8 hours on my lips with little fading if I eat or drink anything.

And yes did I told you that  MAC LIPSTICK "HOT LIKE SALSA" is the closest dupe of MAC PARTY PARROT... well, yes. So if you want to grab it you can have it from Myntra, they still have it.

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF PLUMGOODNESS NATURSTUDIO ALL-DAY-WEAR KOHL KAJAL- BLACK BRILLANCE




"Any makeup without a kajal is incomplete. Kajal plays an important role in  Indian makeup always. Whether it is smokey eyes or kohl eyes, Kajal plays an important part in eye makeup.
So our search for the best kajal is a never-ending task, but today I am up with a post which might help you a bit in your search for a perfect kajal".


Today I am going to share my experience using PLUM GOODNESS KAJAL which is known as "NaturStudio All-Day-Wear Kohl Kajal in Black Brilliance Shade".
 The kajal is available in single and twin pack. I bought the twin pack. Both the pack comes up with a single sharpener.

PRICE:-  Single pack:- Rs.495/- and Twin Pack:- Rs.850/-
AVAILABLE:- PLUM GOODNESS WEBSITE, NYKAA.

SECRET:

 
 The twin pack is better than single pack in term of quantity and price ;)

♥ Made in Germany

DESCRIPTION:-

 
100% smudge-proof. 100% preservative-free

Welcome to NaturStudio- where it's all about the glam, minus the harm. For the first time in India, an ophthalmologically approved kajal pencil with a gel-liner like performance in a pencil format.

REASON TO LOVE:-

♥ Soft, creamy, gel-based single-swipe darkest black.
♥ 100% smudge-proof and water-proof
♥ Brilliant black that looks "just applied" even after 12 hours.
♥ Preservative-free, paraben-free, mineral oil-free, paraffin-free
♥ Dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested & approved
♥ Rich in Vitamin E for care and protection
♥ 100% vegan formula, not tested on animals
♥ Full-size 1.2g pencil – 4 times the kajal found in twister kajals (which contain 0.31g). Lasts at least twice as long.

DISCLAIMER:

  • Great for: Everyone, except those with very sensitive eyes.
  • Not recommended if: Your eyes are sensitive, prone to watering, burning or itching. Check out our all-natural Angel Eyes Kohl Kajal if you are looking for a kajal that's best suited for very sensitive eyes.

HOW TO USE:

To use as kajal, apply a generous swipe on your waterline, starting from the inner corner of the eye and smoothly moving outwards.

To use as liner, draw a line from the outer corner of your eye, moving slightly upward. Now, continuing with the line on your upper eyelid, stroke dark outward to inward, such that it looks like a continuous swipe.

IMPORTANT: For best results, use a high-quality cosmetic pencil sharpener (recommended: Plum Flip-Tip Sharpener) to sharpen. Using loose-fitting sharpeners or stationery pencil sharpeners will damage the tip and the pencil.

GOODNESS INSIDE:

Hydrogenated Castor Oil
Highly hydrating and nourishing for skin and hair with healing properties.

Rice Bran Wax
A relatively unknown but amazing moisturizer that lends creaminess and hydrating properties to any formula!

Natural Vitamin E
Antioxidant skin care specialist that's essential for hydrated, younger looking skin.

"Do note that owing to its high performance benchmark, this product is not all natural - but is 100% safe and tested by dermatologists and ophthalmologists."

PACKAGING:

The kajal comes as a wooden pencil for which it needs to sharpen every time the tip becomes blunt. Thankfully the tip of the kajal is not so soft and that's why if you sharpen it slowly with the plum sharpen the tip will remain intact and it will hardly break.

TIP:

KEEP YOUR KAJAL INSIDE FREEZER FOR AN HOUR OR TWO BEFORE YOU SHARPEN, IT WILL HARDENED THE TIP OF THE KAJAL AND IT WILL NOT PRONE TO BREAKAGE DURING SHARPENING.

MY EXPERIENCE:-

I have tried so many kajal till now that I can write a book on them. But most of the kajal irritate my eyes or feels heavy on my waterline. Plum goodness kajal is one that is jet black in color, super pigmented even on my waterline and it doesn't irritate my eyes at all. The kajal is waterproof but can easily remove with an oil-based makeup remover. You don't need to sharpen it after every time you use because the tip hardly melts at one application. The kajal is perfect for lining on the upper lid also. It doesn't smudge at all if you conceal and set the eyelid with a compact powder before you apply this kajal (just for extra precaution). The kajal is perfect for doing any experimental eye makeup as it glides smoothly on waterline also keeping the pigmentation intact.

Overall I am in love with PLUM GOODNESS KAJAL and definitely, I will recommend this kajal to everyone. Once I end this twin pack I will be buying this kajal again and again as I totally love them.

COLOURPOP THROUGH MY EYES SHADOW PALETTE REVIEW & SWATCHES


"The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes because that is the doorway to her heart"...

Today I am with COLOURPOP THROUGH MY EYES SHADOW PALETTE. It was a collaboration collection ILUVSARAHI.

PRICE:- $24
INSTAGRAM SELLER PRICE:- Rs.2200-Rs.2400/- approx
Availability:- Colourpop website

DESCRIPTION:

You’re a sight to see, baby! Get endless looks with iluvsarahii’s first ever 16-pan shadow palette, includes 8 stunning metallics and 8 rich matte finishes. Get ahead of the curve with the trendiest shades, from rich emeralds to Pantone’s color of the year. Inspired by Karen’s unique perspective from her side of the beauty world, this palette was made for you to embrace and express your own individuality.

  • Lucido: metallic light gold
  • Wild Soul: matte dusty mustard yellow
  • Mesmer-Eyez: metallic orange gold
  • Sandalwood: matte soft light beige
  • In a Wink: matte soft pastel peach
  • Euphoric: matte bright true orange
  • Canela: matte soft terracotta sprinkled with gold glitter
  • Lomo: metallic bright coral red
  • Emerald Dream: metallic vivid emerald green
  • Muze: metallic bright warm gold sprinkled with silver glitter
  • Divina: matte deep blackberry
  • Flecks: metallic icy taupe packed with silver glitter
  • Nostalgia: matte mid-tone warm rose
  • Moody: matte rich forest green
  • Nocturne: metallic rosy red
  • Missbehave: matte rich wine red

The entire collection of ILUVSARAHI X COLOURPOP is available on Colourpop website but I took only the palette from the collection as I am a collector of Eyeshadow palettes after lipsticks.


So the packaging of the palette is really classy. It is little on the heavier side too. The green and metallic gold packaging look so Classy. It comes up with a mirror but there is no brush in it.

It is a 16 pan shadow palette with mixed matte and metallic shades. All the shades are super pigmented and the formula is amazing. For which they are easily blendable on my eyes. There is a little bit fallout of the shade "DIVINA" otherwise all the shades have almost no fallouts. The shadows are pretty good quality and as usual, they can easily beat high-end brands shadows. The pigmentation, texture and the color combination of this palette is as perfect as the other palette of Colourpop Cosmetics.


Overall I really like the palette and it is a complete palette for both neutral and colorful looks.
