REVIEW & SWATCHES OF SHAYLA X COLOURPOP PERCEPTION EYESHADOW PALETTE (Pressed Powder Shadow Palette)




"BLENDING IS THE ONLY CARDIO THAT I LOVE TO DO ALWAYS..."

Talking about my recent pick from Colourpop SHAYLA X COLOURPOP PERCEPTION EYESHADOW PALETTE on my today's post.

The palette that has some golden, black and purple Dalmatians print(well, that is my from my own dictionary of describing the packaging) on the palette makes it look luxe. The palette comes up with a huge mirror and it has no brush. The palette has strong magnetic closure that securely close the palette thus no worry during traveling with the palette. Although the palette is little big but it has sleek packaging for which it takes a small space in my stash.

My experience:-

SHAYLA X COLOURPOP PERCEPTION EYESHADOW PALETTE is a limited edition eyeshadow palette. There are 16 pans of mixed finishes (both matte and metallic) eyeshadows in this palette. The palette looks luxe for its packaging. The warm beige to burgundy definitely made the palette fall into the warm category. The eyeshadows are super pigmented. One single swipe of finger swatches is enough to give you the clear idea of the pigmentation of eyeshadows. They blend effortlessly and I found there is hardly any fallouts. The mattes go easily with eye makeup brushes whereas the metallics go better with fingertips. The palette is a versatile one as some pops of color of eyeshadows that integrated really well with other warm shades. 


Overall I really love the palette and it is my second favorite colourpop palette after that "YES PLEASE" (reviewed here ) one.










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

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF LAKME ABSOLUTE MATTE MELT LIQUID LIPSTICKS



Hey Everyone,

So Lakme launched another range of new lipsticks which are named as "LAKME ABSOLUTE MATTE MELT LIQUID LIPSTICKS".


Price:- Rs.750/-
Availability:- Nykaa and Amazon.


This range has 8 different shades.You can buy from here:-



Packaging:-

 
LAKME ABSOLUTE MATTE MELT LIQUID LIPSTICKS comes in a transparent glass packaging for which you can see the shade from outside. It is a very convenient packaging as one can see the shades from outside. The wand is the slanting type for which it is very easy to line and fill up the lips.

My Experience:-

LAKME ABSOLUTE MATTE MELT LIQUID LIPSTICKS are actually liquid matte lipsticks. The texture is neither too runny nor too thick. It is very balanced kind off texture for which it is very easy to apply on lips. These lipsticks have medium pigmentation for which they need at least 3-4 swipes to get that actual shades on lips. The lipsticks dry out pretty fast on lips giving a velvety finish on lips. One need to work really fast while applying these lipsticks. These are transferred proof and they only fade if you eat any oily food. Unless it stays as a stain on your lips throughout the day with slight fading.

Down Points:-

The only two down points of these lipsticks are :

  • First of all the price is a bit high.
  • Secondly, the shade range is very common. I wish they have introduced some different shades than usual red, pink, brown, mauve.

Overall I love this velvety finish liquid matte lipsticks of Lakme and definitely, I would love to recommend you all (I just wished they lowered the price a bit).












That's all for today. See you in my next post.

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF FACES ULTIMATE PRO MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICKS



Finally, Faces Cosmetics enter into the trend of liquid matte lipsticks. They launched a new range of liquid matte lipsticks which are named "ULTIMATE PRO MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICKS". 

There are 8 pretty shades in this range. I bought 4 shades from this range.


  • NUDE TRUFFLE.
  • BERRY BOOST.
  • PINK PROMISE.
  • REBEL RED.

Price:- Rs.899/- each
Availability:-AMAZON



Packaging:-
 
FACES ULTIMATE PRO MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICKS comes in a tapered tube kind of packaging. The packaging is bit weird for which the lipstick had to keep lying on stash. The packaging is travel-friendly and easy to carry in small pouch or purse.

My Experience:-

The liquid lipsticks are runny in consistency. The lipstick turns matte immediately after application. The pigmentation of these lipsticks is medium pigmented for which one need 3 or 4 swipes to get the actual shade on lips. Or it is better if you applied a concealer on your pigmented lips before you apply these liquid lipsticks. The lipsticks are comfort matte on my lips and they are transfer-proof. But they start fading from the very first moment when you eat or drink something.

Now here is a little bit of disappointed from the quality of these liquid lipsticks which are priced a bit higher compared to the other liquid lipsticks from another brand which are better in quality and lesser in price. I was expecting a lot from these lipsticks seeing the online swatches but I end up being little disappointed (quality wise).

The swatches although look good in these pictures but still I will suggest you if you still want to try these lipsticks reading my review then try one shade at first... :) 













That's all for today. See you in my next post :)

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF PANTENE PRO-V OIL REPLACEMENT CREAM




Hey Everyone,

Talking about hair there are so many products in the market right now that is really confusing which one to pick. When it comes about my hair I am really skeptical. I hardly change my hair care routine, as I don't love to experiment with my skin and hair.

But recently Pantene pr people contact to try out their recent famous product  "PANTENE PRO-V OIL REPLACEMENT CREAM". And as many people raving about this product I said yes to the brand to try it out.

Price:- Available in two sizes. Rs.85/- for 80ml and Rs.150 for 180m.


Availability:- https://amzn.to/2yH0buT

Packaging:-

PANTENE PRO-V OIL REPLACEMENT CREAM comes in a tube packaging. One had to squeeze to take out the product.

My Experience:-

The cream is white in color. It has a nice fragrance which lingers on my hair even after hair wash. The texture of the cream is thick and while applying I found it sticky on my hair (all the washable creams are generally sticky on hair). For my thin hair, 3/4 dollop is enough to cover up my entire hair.
Now to be very honest I didn't find the cream work miracle on my hair. The cream definitely moisturizes my hair and feels soft for 24 hours. But after that, I started to feel my hair sticky and dull for next 24 hrs without shampoo. Whereas a proper oiling makes my hair moisturize and shiny for 2 days maximum. So definitely this cream can be substituted for oil when you are in hurry but it can't replace the wonder of hair oils.








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

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF PAC RETRO MINI LIPSTICK SETS



Hey guys,

Today I am up with PAC RETRO MINI LIP KITS review and swatches. 


Pac cosmetics lately coming up with one after another some good products. And among these new launches, one is these MINI LIPSTICKS SETS. I guess it is the first time that we are getting some lipsticks from drugstore brand in India in mini size like those of International brands.

There is 4 range of shades in these mini sets. They are N*DE, PINK-N*DE, PURPLE & BROWN. In each set, there are 4 different shades of mini lipsticks. These mini lipsticks are totally newly launched shades. They claim that these mini lipstick shades are not the mini version of full lipsticks. Both are totally different.

I picked up two set PINK-N*DE and PINK. Each mini have 3ml of products (whereas the full size has 6.5ml of products).

Price of each set is:- Rs.1275/- .
Available:- Pac Cosmetics website or from Amazon.in


Packaging:-

 
PAC RETRO MINI LIP KITS comes in a cute, compact packaging. One can carry the entire set while traveling or as singles in their small purse and pouches.

My Experience:-

 
PAC RETRO MINI LIP KITS are one of the best launches of Pac cosmetics. I love the formula of these minis. I feel that these minis are less drying compare to the full-size liquid matte ones. All the shades are super pigmented. One or two swipe is enough to get the opaque coverage. They are neither patchy during application nor flaky after the lipsticks dry out.  The lipsticks stay 6 hours + on my lips. These are transfer-proof and they hardly transfer if you eat or drink anything. They fade(only from middle part of lips) only if you eat any oily food. Otherwise, these PAC RETRO MINI LIP KITS are totally worth buying lipsticks.
