Review & Swatches of Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick CANDY VENOM




"Lipstick is all about having fun and expressing your mood at any given moment. This collection makes it easier than ever because there's a color for everyone." - Rihanna

After the Foundation (reviewed here ) and the lip paint (reviewed here ), now it's time for lipstick in this FENTY BEAUTY brand series.

 Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipsticks come in 14 shades in which I picked up the shade CANDY VENOM, which is a beautiful cool fuchsia with a satin finish.

Price:- $18 for 0.06oz.
Instagram Seller price:- Rs.2200/- (approx.).
Availability:- Not available in India.

Rihanna loves changing up her lipstick depending on her current mood, so she wanted to create a lipstick collection that would empower everyone to explore new looks. She hand-picked the range of 14 shades that anyone can pull off, with shade names that embody the personality of each color.

A LITTLE MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE LIPSTICK:-


ALL-DAY COLOR INTENSITY. WEIGHTLESS MATTE FINISH.

 An ultra slim matte lipstick with a long-wearing, petal-soft matte finish, created in a rainbow of 14 weightless, color-intense shades each designed to flatter all skin tones.

Whether you're looking for the perfect red, everyday nude, or moody blue, Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick makes it easier than ever to rock the entire rainbow.

Rihanna wanted to make the matte lipstick of your dreams a reality: Think mega rich color minus the weight. The ultimate light-as-air textures glides on creamy and stays put - no bleeding or feathering after application - with a velvety, soft matte inspired by a rose petal finish. And thanks to Mattemoiselle's chic, slim design, you can effortlessly define lips with the ultimate control, for lips that look fuller with every stroke.

EXPERIENCE:-

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick CANDY VENOM is a beautiful pink shade which is again a versatile pink. The lipstick has satin texture and super pigmented. One swipe is enough to get the opaque coverage on lips. The lipstick hides the lip pigmentation perfectly. It stays pretty 6-7 hours on my lips. It fades a bit only if you eat or drink something. The lipstick is semi transfer-proof which mean if you press your lips on cups and glass then it will transfer a bit but not insanely. The lipstick is a comfort matte and perfect lipstick that one can wear any time of the year whether it is summer (it doesn't bleed) or in winter (it doesn't dry out my lips).


Overall Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in shade CANDY VENOM is one of few shades in this range which will go perfectly on Indian skin tone. 








So, that's all for today. See you next time.

REVIEW & SWATCHES FENTY BEAUTY STUNNA LIP PAINT



"The perfect red is hard to get right, and it's really hard to find YOUR red that works on your skin tone." - Rihanna

Rihanna chose this bright beautiful red because it sets beautifully on every skin tone.

After the foundation (reviewed here ) it is time for lips. A perfect red for every skin tone...and that is called FENTY BEAUTY UNCENSORED LIP PAINT.

Price:-  $24 for 4ml.
Instagram seller Price:- Rs.2400/- (approx.).
Availability:- Not available in India.

A LITTLE MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE LIP PAINT:-


  • ONE-STROKE INTENSITY, 12HR MATTE WEAR.
  • UNRIVALED PRECISION WAND.

A weightless, 12hr liquid lipstick with a soft matte finish - born in one head-turning red shade that looks incredible on all skin tones.

When life's all about taking risks, wearing red lipstick shouldn't be one of them. Enter Stunna Lip Paint: The love child of high-impact color and low-maintenance longwear in one head-turning red that's got everyone's name on it. It is, hands down, the perfect shade of red, hand-picked by Rihanna and obsessively tested to make sure it looks incredible on everyone.

Equal parts class and sass, Stunna Lip Paint goes from zero to 100 in one stroke of its lip-defining precision wand, making it easier than ever to dress your entire pout in show-stopping, soft matte pigment. Its serious 12-hour hold is so weightless, if it weren't for the non-stop compliments, you'd forget you were even wearing it. And if that weren't enough - Stunna Lip Paint won't feather, staying kissably smooth. In other words, it behaves so you don't have to.

Fenty Beauty is 100% cruelty free.

Ingredients:

UNCENSORED: ISODODECANE, DIMETHICONE, TRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE, HYDROGENATED POLYCYCLOPENTADIENE, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE, TRIETHOXYCAPRYLYLSILANE, PROPYLENE CARBONATE, RED 7 (CI 15850), YELLOW 5 LAKE (CI 19140), YELLOW 6 LAKE (CI 15985).

HOW TO APPLY:-

Stunna Lip Paint's hyper-intense pigment performs best when activated, so shake before use!

PACKAGING:-

FENTY BEAUTY UNCENSORED LIP PAINT  comes in a beautiful luxe packaging. The outer carton box is the usual Fenty Beauty style. The box is quite big. Inside the box, there is the lip paint. The octagonal glass bottle comes up with an octagonal Louboutin kind off cap is eye-catching. It looks more like a nail polish bottle than a liquid lipstick packaging. The wand of the lip paint is a little bit odd at first glimpse but slowly the more I started to use it I understood it actually help us to apply the lip paint smoothly on our lips. The curve wand is perfect for lip filling but for lip lining, one might need a lip brush additional to it.

EXPERIENCE:-

FENTY BEAUTY UNCENSORED LIP PAINT was my first buy from this brand. The red shade actually attracts me a lot. The lip paint true to it's claim of having a soft matte texture which stays comfortably on my lips for hours. The lipstick shade is a perfect universal red shade which will go across all skin tones.

The lip paint instantly brightens up my skin tone, my teeth. No matter how bad your makeup is or no makeup look this lip paint instantly lift up the entire makeup level. The lip paint stays pretty 8-9 hours on my lips. It is transfer-proof but it fades a little if you are not careful with oily food. The lipstick is a matte one but it will go well on dry lips people too (as one day I was having extremely dry lips and this lipstick was a boon for my dry lips).

Overall FENTY BEAUTY UNCENSORED LIP PAINT is one of the cult shade from this brand that mostly can't ignore the shade and quality. The only down point is this lip paint is not available in India and one had to get it via any shipping company or via Instagram seller.

Let's hope one day Rihanna start selling her FENTY BEAUTY product in Indian Sephora too. :)









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

Review of FENTY BEAUTY PRO FILT'R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation



 
"Foundation is one of those areas in the beauty industry that has a big void for women at extreme ends of the shade spectrum. There’s this middle ground that's covered really, really well. But then if you're very pale or if you're very dark, there aren’t a lot of options. And so, I wanted to make sure that women of all skin tones were covered so they could be included in what I created." - Rihanna 


Finally, I am up with my series of reviews of a new brand "FENTY BEAUTY" by Rihanna on my blog. A brand created by Rihanna needs no introduction that how much luxe it can be.


Today I am up with FENTY BEAUTY PRO FILT'R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation.

Price:- $34 for 32ml.
Instagram seller price:- Rs.3300/- - Rs.3400/- approx.
Available:- Available here
Not available in India (had to buy from Instagram sellers).
 

DESCRIPTION:-
Give it to me quick:

A soft matte, long wear foundation with buildable, medium to full coverage, in a boundary-breaking range of 40 shades.

Finally — the ultimate photo filter in foundation form. Born in 40 boundary-breaking shades, Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation gives skin an instantly smooth, pore-diffused, shine-free finish that easily builds to medium to full coverage. The oil-free formula is made with climate-adaptive technology that's resistant to sweat and humidity, and won't clog pores so that wherever you are, it's going to work on.

How’d we do it?

    Obsessive research to create the perfect range of shades for all
    Exclusive insights from the world’s top makeup artists
    Extensively tested for real life, on real women

We figured out that it takes the right balance of tone and texture to make foundation work on every skin type. We obsessed over custom pigment levels to capture your truest tones with a soft matte finish that’s just right—not too matte and not too shiny. The result? A comfortable long wear formula that lets skin look like skin. Made for all women to love.

 
Shade-Finding Tips:

  •     Always shake before use to activate.
  •     Pro Filt’r’s rich pigments need a moment to dry down to their truest color, so when you're testing shades, remember to let the formula dry completely to find your perfect match.   
  • Deciding between two shades? Try the lighter shade.

Rihanna’s go-to shade? 340. She also wears 330, 360, or 370, depending on the time of year.

Fenty Beauty is 100% cruelty-free.


 
HOW TO USE:-

  • Be sure to moisturize skin before foundation application, especially if your skin is dry. After moisturizing, prep skin with Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer for best results.
  • Always shake before use to activate. When testing shades, remember to let foundation dry completely to find your perfect match.
  • For full coverage: Apply 1-2 pumps of Pro Filt’r Foundation on the back of your hand. Using the Full-Bodied Foundation Brush 110, dot product onto the center of your face and blend outward.
  • For medium, customizable coverage: Apply 1 pump of Pro Filt’r Foundation to the back of your hand. Using a damp Precision Makeup Sponge 100, begin applying the product at the center of your face, or wherever coverage is desired, pressing foundation into the skin and blending outward. For fuller coverage, add another pump.

RIHANNA’S WAY: For the ultimate pore coverage, press brush into the skin, roll off, and repeat.

INGREDIENTS:


AQUA/WATER/EAU, DIMETHICONE, TALC, PEG-10 DIMETHICONE, TRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE, POLYPROPYLENE, ISODODECANE, CETYL PEG/PPG-10/1 DIMETHICONE, NYLON-12, HDI/TRIMETHYLOL HEXYLLACTONE CROSSPOLYMER, PHENOXYETHANOL, SODIUM CHLORIDE, HYDROGEN DIMETHICONE, GLYCERIN, MAGNESIUM SULFATE, SODIUM DEHYDROACETATE, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE, ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE, METHICONE, BENZOIC ACID, DEHYDROACETIC ACID, PROPYLENE CARBONATE, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, PARFUM/FRAGRANCE, SILICA, BIOSACCHARIDE GUM-4, ANANAS SATIVUS (PINEAPPLE) FRUIT EXTRACT, CARICA PAPAYA (PAPAYA) FRUIT EXTRACT, PAULLINIA CUPANA SEED EXTRACT, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SORBIC ACID. MAY CONTAIN/PEUT CONTENIR (+/-):


Packaging:-

 
FENTY BEAUTY PRO FILT'R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation comes in a glass bottle. One can see the shades from outside. It comes with a pump thus it is easy to carry and use and hassle-free.

My Experience:-

Well, I am a person who hardly changes foundation in makeup routine. If I like any foundation I prefer to stick to it only. But FENTY BEAUTY PRO FILT'R Soft Matte Long wear Foundation actually tempts me to try it when it launched as many makeup lovers were swearing by this product. So I grab this foundation.



The foundation is lightweight in texture. The shade 240 is a bang on match to my skin (I am Mac NC 30-35).  The foundation is a matte one so it goes perfectly on oily skin beauties. Dry skin people might feel this foundation bit dry on their skin. The foundation gives medium coverage which is buildable. One need a concealer additional only to hide extreme dark circles or scar or any acne marks else the foundation is good enough to cover all light acne and pimple marks on my skin. The foundation is so lightweight that although if you layer it you won't feel anything heavy on your face. It will give you a flawless, smoothed effects. The foundation stays 8-9 hours on my skin with little(10%) of fading in sweaty summers. 


Overall FENTY BEAUTY PRO FILT'R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is actually a better version of MAC STUDIO FIX PLUS LIQUID FOUNDATION (if that gives you a clear idea regarding this foundation).

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS SOFT GLAM EYESHADOW PALETTE



Hi Everyone,

After ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS MODERN RENAISSANCE PALETTE (reviewed here) it's time for reviewing another hottest selling palette and that is ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS SOFT GLAM EYE SHADOW PALETTE. It is a new launch by Anastasia just a few months back.

Price:- $42/- + shipping.
Instagram seller price:- Rs.4200/- approx.
Available:- ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS  website here or BeautyBay or from Instagram sellers.

A little more info about the palette (from the website):-



Product description:

Featuring fourteen essential shades, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eye Shadow Palette is the perfect collection of easy-to-blend, full pigment shadows. With a long-lasting formula, this palette is complete with bronze metallics and iridescent finishes ideal for a nighttime look and neutral mattes for daytime.

Shade Descriptions -

 
  • Tempera: Ultra-matte velvety beige
  • Glistening: Iridescent gold with a hint of pink reflect
  • Orange Soda: Ultra-matte pastel peach
  • Rose Pink: Rose gold with a soft pink iridescent hue
  • Sultry: A hybrid satin metallic finish warm chocolate brown
  • Bronze: Metallic gold bronze
  • Mulberry: Ultra-matte mulberry
  • Dusty Rose: Ultra-matte dusty lilac
  • Fairy: Multi-dimensional light gold
  • Burnt Orange: Ultra-matte deep orange
  • Sienna: Ultra-matte earthy brown
  • Rustic: Ultra-matte deep cinnamon brown
  • Cyprus Umber: Ultra-matte dark coffee
  • Noir: Ultra-matte deep carbon black

Packaging:-

 
The palette comes in a beautiful beige color cardboard box. The box and the palette are of same beige color with the name of the palette emboss on it in white. The outer cover of the palette has a velvety finish.


The palette consists of 14 beautiful shades. The box of the palette is sturdy one and it closes with a magnetic closure. It comes with a mirror and a dual-ended brush. The dual ended brush has one side eyeshadow brush whereas another side is the blending brush. The bristles of the blending brush are little scratchy and it picks a lot of product whereas the eyeshadow brush is less harsh on skin and easy to use. The brush is actually perfect for touch up only.

My Experience:-

The shade TEMPERA and BURNT ORANGE  are two common shades that are present in both ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Modern Renaissance palette and in ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Soft Glam Palette. Leaving these two all are totally different shades.

The palette consists of 14 beautiful mixed shades of neutrals. It is actually a matte and shimmer mixed neutral shades palette which is perfect for every skin tone. The palette is perfect for both daytime and evening look. All the shades are super pigmented even the matte shades too.  Even without primer, the eyeshadows are super pigmented one. The texture of the eyeshadows is so soft that they blend easily. But few eyeshadows have minimal fallout which is ok because the shades are super pigmented as I told you earlier. The most amazing part of this palette is that all the neutral shades are equally pigmented like the dark shades. And the shimmer ones are super pigmented.
 

The staying power of the eyeshadows is worth mentioning. They stay pretty 7 hours plus without any primer on my oily lids. After 7 hours there is slight fading and smudging of shades during summer on my oily lids but that can be fixed with a primer and a setting spray.


Drawback:-

 
  • The palette is a bit costly when it comes to ordering it from the website as they have shipping plus customs. So in India, grabbing this palette is a bit problem. So, if you want to grab this palette hassle free then Instagram sellers are the good options for you. And if you want to grab it is less price then check out this palette during LABOUR DAY SALE  or BLACK FRIDAY SALE (when they have almost 20% off on selected products including this palette too).
  • Secondly, all the shades are pretty dupeable one in the palette so if you can't grab it you can look for the dupes but I admit that the quality of the palette is something that is worth mentioning.

Overall ANASTASIA SOFT GLAM PALETTE is one of the best palettes that is created by the brand. And the palette is permanent one so anybody can grab it anytime. The palette is a versatile palette full of neutrals shades for everyone to create a different kind of neutral and bold looks for every season. I am amazed by the pigmentation of the eyeshadows in the palette and I think this palette is a must-have palette in your stash if you are an eyeshadow lover like me.
 

That's all for today, I am leaving you here with loads of pictures of the Eye shadow palette followed by an EOTD  created by the palette only.

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF SUEDE SECRET MATTE LIP COLOUR.



Hi everyone,

Today I am up with review and swatches of lipsticks all from a famous drugstore brand "SUGAR COSMETICS". So Sugar cosmetics recently launched another 10 shades in their SUEDE SECRET MATTE LIP COLOUR.
I got 5 shades from 10 new launch range for review purpose from the brand.


Price:- Rs.799/- each for 6 ml of product.
Availability:- Only on Sugar cosmetics website for now.

  SHADE DESCRIPTION:-

The shades I got are:-

  • 12 LINEN LILAC (Mauve)
  • 13 NYLON NUDE (Nude Pink)
  • 14 TARTAN TANGERINE (Orange with hints of Red)
  • 15 FLEECE FUCHSIA (Deep Fuchsia)
  • 16 SILK SANGRIA (Magenta Purple)

Little more info of SUGAR COSMETICS SUEDE SECRET MATTE LIP COLOURS:-
Plunge head first into high-pigmented matte fantasy with the SUGAR Suede Secret Matte Lipcolour! With a formula so lightweight that you'll forget you're wearing it and a finish so plush that it never feels dry even when it dries – your search for the ‘holy grail’ liquid lipstick is pretty much done.

Work this #MadeInItaly beauty to take matte to the max with a punch of opaque colour in every swipe. Dries quickly to a smooth matte finish without leaving your lips parched – this is your secret weapon to hack a luxurious pout! The SUGAR Suede Secret Matte Lipcolour boasts of a 12-hour stay and comes in a spectrum of highly-pigmented shades that complement a slew of complexions - make it your goal to own every one of them!
 

How to Apply: 

Gently remove the excess from the applicator first. Use its curved tip to apply the liquid lipstick like a liner. Then swipe the lipstick on to fill in your lips.

Benefits: 


The SUGAR Suede Secret Matte Lip colour applies wet then dries down to an ultra-matte yet ultra-comfortable finish that doesn't budge. Its formula is infused with moisturizing jojoba oil and shea butter that gives lips a smooth, nondrying finish. The curved applicator is designed to hug lips of all shapes and makes it easy to stencil and colour in between the lines.

Packaging:-

 The lip color comes in a frosty transparent tube. One can see the color from the outside. The packaging of the lipsticks is really nice. The square size of the tube occupies a small space in my stash. The wand is pretty nice and doe foot kind off for which it is very easy to line and fill the lip color on my lips. Overall packaging wise the packaging of these lip color are really nice :)

My experience:-

The texture of the lip color is not runny neither thick. A well-balanced of texture that evenly spread on my lips. The lip color takes time to dry out but once it dried it looked like true matte on lips. The lipstick is very light in texture and one can't feel that she is wearing something on lips. It is that much good. The lipsticks are true matte but if you rub your fingers on your lips it will come out a little bit. But that doesn't mean it will fade, as it nicely stained the lips once dried. The lip color doesn't dry up my lips with time and so it stays comfortably matte on my lips for hours (5/6 hours). The lip color doesn't transfer on your cups or if you drink something but sometimes it fades a little bit from the middle part of lips if you having some oily food (as usual like other liquid matte lip colors). The lip color although stains my lips a little bit but they are very easy to remove too.


There is only one difference with the previous shade range is that this time Sugar launched little bolder shades.











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

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF 10 BEST PAC RETRO MATTE GLOSS



Hi Everyone,

Today I am up with my review on PAC RETRO MATTE GLOSS  that I was collecting from past few months.

 PAC RETRO MATTE GLOSS  has a huge variety of shades in this range and so it is really difficult to pick just one. Although I end up buying 10 PAC RETRO MATTE GLOSS  :P

Price:- Rs.550/- for 6.5ml.
Available:- Nykaa, Amazon, PAC Cosmetics website.


The shade I bought are the following:-


Description:-

PAC Cosmetics is a professional makeup artist brand bringing in the highest quality, innovative cosmetic products to all makeup lovers and professional artists. Started in 2002, PAC is a team of conscientious and committed experts dedicated to making tools that help you perfect your makeup, minus all the fuss, just as you desire. The products used have been bought from worldwide and are completely free from any heavy metal or animal testing to ensure that only the best is delivered to you.

Revolutionary new lightweight, non-drying liquid lipsticks that give you high impact color, Introducing the amazing Pac Retro Matte Glosses. These give you an opaque payoff with just one swipe! These liquid lipsticks dry down matte beautifully right after one swipe and last through thick and thin! Available in unique shades that will surely steal everyone's heart. These are too good to be true!

Features:

  •     Lightweight, non-drying formula
  •     Opaque pay off with just one swipe
  •     Highly pigmented formula

Packaging:-

The Packaging of matte gloss is almost the same as the other liquid lipsticks from an International brand like "Jefreestar lipsticks", Dose of Color or Sugar pill. But the bottle of PAC is a little sleek than the above-mentioned brand's packaging. The bottom of the glass tube of PAC RETRO MATTE GLOSS is transparent for which one can see the shade from outside. The wand is a doe foot applicator. The applicator is soft and easy to line and fill up the lips.

My Experience:-

The texture of PAC RETRO MATTE GLOSS is a balanced kind of, it is neither too runny nor too thick. A thin layer of color is enough to get an opaque coverage on lips. The lipsticks are liquid lipsticks but they are comfort matte on my lips. They don't dry up insanely with time giving quench for something moisturizing for lips. And so it stays nicely 5-6 hours on my lips. The lipsticks once dried become transfer-proof and smudge-proof. They only fade if you eat anything oily. Otherwise, it stays intact throughout the day.
PAC Cosmetics claims that the new lip shades have little better formula than old shades and I agree with that claim as me too feel that the new lip shades are better and more comfort matte on lips.

Overall if you are looking for some affordable and great quality of liquid lipsticks that are equally as good as "Kylie Cosmetics" then definitely you should give these lipsticks a try. PAC RETRO MATTE GLOSS are more affordable and almost same in texture, pigmentation and staying power.








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

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF MAC COSMETICS NICCOPANDA FACE GLEAMER POWDER



Hi Everyone,

Finally, my wait is over as MAC COSMETICS NICOPANDA FACE GLEAMER POWDER just added in my stash. I was looking for this powder from the day it launched and finally, my collection from this collaboration (reviewed here) is complete.


When it comes about MAC my love for the brand never changes no matter how much another luxe brand I tried out.






Price:- $29 and Rs.2600/- in India for 15g.
Available:- Myntra.



DESCRIPTION:

According to Mac, the Face Gleamer powder is a light-as-air velvety face powder with silky sheer color that applies smoothly and evenly.

A light-as-air velvety face powder with silky sheer color that applies smoothly and evenly. This highly blendable formula has an air-whipped texture. The panda-imprinted powder is pressed with three complexion-enhancing shades in satin and matte finishes to create a naturally radiant look. When blended together, the shades subtly highlight and even out skin for a soft overall glow. The exclusively designed minimalistic white and black compact features a 3D signature NICOPANDA.

SHADE DESCRIPTION:

    White: Bright clean white
    Nude: Warm beige
    Pink: Bright baby pink


Key Claims and Benefits
    Dermatologist tested
    Ophthalmologist tested
    Non-acnegenic
    Safe for contact lens wearers

Usage:

Use a brush to blend powder colors together and apply all over the face.

Packaging:-

 
The face powder comes in a 3d design of the face of a panda, which is really cute. It is so cute that one could have only this reason to grab this powder. The powder comes in a beautiful white panda face case. It has a cute fitted mirror in it.

My Experience:-

 
I was badly looking for MAC COSMETICS NICOPANDA FACE GLEAMER POWDER and when I saw that Myntra have this I immediately order this one.
The powder is claimed to be a velvety one with silky sheer color. But after applying it to my face I found that it is actually a perfect "finishing Powder". The powder stays pretty 5 hours on my skin giving a natural glow look. It doesn't melt down with sweat for which one can apply it in sweaty summer days too.  The powder is true to its claims as it blends into my skin with ease. It doesn't look chalky at all. The only con of this powder is as it very light in color so it will work on limited skin tones only. And secondly, the design is so pretty I don't have the heart to ruin it :(

Overall I am really happy with my purchase as I was not expecting that the powder will suit me. I bought it just for the sake of packaging but after applying it I just have fallen in love with it.








So, that's all for today. See you in my next post.
Love Sammy :*
