All the shades that I swatched today are launched in this year 2018 and I grabbed all of them throughout the year. Few are bought during sales and few are just after the launch. In this lippie stix range, I love the MATTE X finish most as they are super matte, highly pigmented and long staying followed by I love the MATTE range only.


The other CREAM finish is ok for me and so I totally skipped that range. In today's video, all the shades I swatched are from MATTE X finishes.


Overall these lippies are affordable and must have in your stash if you are a matte lover like me :)








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

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF JUVIA'S PLACE DOUCE PALETTE




Hi everyone,

So taking a break from lipstick review series today I am up with one of my recent buy, an eyeshadow palette review. JUVIA'S PLACE is one of my favourite brand of eyeshadow. I already have their  SAHARAN PALETTE, MASQUERADE PALETTE, NUBIAN 2 PALETTE, ZULU PALETTE. And today I am going to review DOUCE PALETTE, which is one of that palette whose shades are experimental and tricky. A perfect palette for the holiday season.

Price:- $21.
Instagram seller price:- 1500/-  to 2000/- Approx.
Available:- JUVIA'S PLACE website


 

DESCRIPTION:-

A sweet blend of metallic hues and matte shades. A creamy velvety feel infused with rich pigmentation.

Packaging:-

The art of packaging of this palette is worth mentioning. The palette comes in a sturdy and sleek cardboard box with African figures on it. The palette has a holographic design. There is magnetic closure in it. The palette has the perfect size for travel.

My Experience:-



JUVIA'S PLACE DOUCE PALETTE is a palette which has shades that are experimental ones. The palette has mostly those shades which we generally don't reach out on daily basis so this palette is only for an eyeshadow lover who can feel the beauty of this palette and love to create experimental looks with eyeshadows.

The palette has mixtures of 9 matte and shimmers. The texture, quality, pigmentation and staying power of the eyeshadows are too good. The eyeshadows have a buttery texture. They are pigmented so one needs to control the application of the eyeshadows during creating looks. They blend easily and there is a very small amount of fallouts.

Overall I am loving this JUVIA'S PLACE DOUCE PALETTE and yes it is another awesome palette from this brand in my collection.









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

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF SUGAR COSMETICS NOTHING ELSE MATTER LONGWEAR LIPSTICKS *ALL SHADES



Hi Everyone,

Today I am up with a new range of SUGAR COSMETICS lipsticks and they are NOTHING ELSE MATTER LONGWEAR LIPSTICKS.
There are 11 shades in this range that recently launched in Sugar cosmetics website. I swatched all of them.

Price:- Rs.499/-each.
Availability:- Sugar Cosmetics Online and offline stores.

 

Shade Names & Generic Descriptions:
 
1. Caramel Nude - 01 Browning Glory
2. Red with hints of pink, orange - 02 Red Rush
3. Subtle Burnt Red - 03 Rust Have
4. Mauve Nude - 04 Nude Vibes
5. Bright Orange Red - 05 Coral Dilemma
6. Bright Fuchsia Pink - 06 Pink Aloud
7. Magenta Pink - 07 Hidden Magenta
8. Berry - 08 Berry Picking
9. Dark Red - 09 Royal Redding
10. Nude Rose - 10 Rosy Picture
11. Peach - 11 Peach Bunny

PACKAGING:-

 
The lipsticks come in a similar packaging like the vivid lipsticks from this brand. The case is little wider and shorter than the vivid lipsticks packaging. The bullet of the lipsticks is slanting and a little bit wider too. The lipstick bullet is perfect to fill the lips nicely but it is a little difficult to line thin lips but that can be sorted by using a lip brush.

MY EXPERIENCE:-
Coming to my experience, OMG! the lipstick nailed in every way. The lipsticks are matte in texture but definitely, these are comfort matte. They glide super smoothly on my lips and giving a matte look. The pigmentation of both lighter and darker shades are awesome. One or two swipes and they are just banging on color on your lips. The lipsticks are so pigmented that they easily hide all the pigmentation of lips giving an even coverage of lip shades on your lips. The lipsticks have no fragrance in it.  The staying power of these lipsticks is almost 7-8 hours on my lips with a slight bit of fading if I eat or drink anything.
Overall, I would say that these lipsticks can be affordable dupe Mac powder kiss lipsticks (reviewed here).

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF MAC POWDER KISS LIPSTICKS


Hi Everyone, 

Today I am up with a new range of Mac cosmetics lipsticks and they are POWDER KISS MATTE LIPSTICKS.
There are 17 shades in this range that recently launched in India.
I picked up 7 of them.


Price:- Rs.1650/-each.
Availability:- Nykaa and Mac Cosmetics stores.

The shade I grabbed are:-

  • BURNING LOVE
  • LASTING PASSION
  • DEVOTED TO CHILLI
  • STYLE SHOCKED
  • A LITTLE TAMED
  • FALL IN LOVE
  • SHOCKING REVELATION

PACKAGING:-

The lipsticks come in a regular packaging of Mac cosmetics lipsticks. The only difference is these lipsticks case has black matte packaging while the regular one has glossier packaging and these lipsticks smell like candy instead of that regular vanilla fragrance one (according to my opinion).

MY EXPERIENCE:-

These lipsticks have balm-like texture and so they glide smoothly on my lips. The bullet looks dry matte one but on lips, the lipsticks are comfort matte that stays pretty 4-5 hours on my lips. The pigmentation and staying power of darker shades are better than lighter shades and so I picked up mostly dark shades. The lipsticks are quite similar with PAT MCGRATH REAL mattetrance lipsticks and so if you don't want to invest your money on those expensive lipsticks of PAT then do try out these range of MAC Cosmetics.



Overall I just love, love love these lipsticks and if mac added few more dark shades in this range then definitely I will grab that too :)

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF FACES ULTIMATE PRO HD INTENSE MATTE LIPSTICK + PRIMER LIPSTICKS


Hey Everyone,

Finally, I am up with swatches and review of 11 new shades from a new range of lipsticks from FACES CANADA. These lipsticks are known as FACES ULTIMATE PRO HD INTENSE MATTE LIPSTICK + PRIMER LIPSTICKS.

There are 17 shades and I picked up 11 shades from it (almost all...lol).


Price:- Rs.749/- each.
Available:- Nykaa, Amazon, Purplle.com

The shades I grab are:-

  1. MAGNETIC
  2. CRUSHED BERRY
  3. DASH OF PINK
  4. SCARLET
  5. BERRY SORBET
  6. TEA ROSE
  7. BOLD WINE
  8. SCANDALOUS
  9. MULBERRY MAGIC
  10. TEMPTING
  11. RED BOUQUET

PACKAGING:-

 
 The lipsticks come in a twist up packaging for which it is easy to use. The bullet of the lipsticks is really slim which is actually good for people who have thin lips. Moreover, the slim bullet helps to line and fill up the lips easily.The cap of each lipstick have the matching color with the actual shade of the lipstick in it for which it is very easy to pick any particular shade from stash.

MY EXPERIENCE:-

 
The texture of the lipsticks is matte. They glide smoothly on lips without any tugging or pulling of lips. The lipsticks turn to matte gradually with time. So it is my suggestion that give the time of about 1 hour to set it totally matte on your lips. The lipsticks are not transferred proof at first but with time they gradually turn transfer proof. The lipsticks stay pretty 5-6 hours on my lips with a slight bit of fading if you eat anything. The pigmentation of these lipsticks are awesome, one or two swipe is just enough to get that opaque coverage.
So overall keeping the price point (which is high) aside if I ask then definitely I would love to recommend these lipsticks to all matte lovers.

REVIEW AND SWATCHES LUNARBEAUTY LIFE'S A DRAG PALETTE


"A PALETTE THAT HAS BOTH NEUTRALS AND COLORFUL SHADES AT ONE GO THAT IS LIFE'S A DRAG PALETTE".

Hey Everyone,

Finally, I am up with LunarBeauty Life's a Drag Palette review. If you are not aware of LunarBeauty Life's a Drag Palette then let me tell you that the famous YouTuber "MANNYMUA" has come up with his own palette and this Lunar Beauty Life's a Drag Palette is one of his own creation.
The palette has everything according to "MANNYMUA'S" choice.

Price:- $45 which is approx. Rs.5000/- if you buy from Instagram seller.
Availability:- Lunar Beauty website https://lunarbeauty.com/products/lifes-a-drag-palette


Net Weight: 0.70 oz or 21 g
Finish: Matte, Satin, Glitter



A little more info about the palette:-
Feel the fantasy come alive in this fierce and fabulous 14 pan palette. This cruelty-free, playful palette contains all the perfect shades which holds effortlessly to the eyes and blends smoothly and evenly. These shades may not be suitable for direct eye use.


Shade Description:-


  • Cake Face: Matte pure white
  • Shady: Matte pure black
  • Sickning: Matte soft peach transition shade
  • Trade: Matte deep burgundy
  • Hunty: Matte cool tone brown
  • Mug: Matte deep warm brown
  • Campy: Matte bright Yellow
  • Kai Kai: Matte Bright Pink
  • Pageant Queen: Matte purple
  • Snatched: Matte deep red shade
  • Kiki: Matte soft mint shade
  • Fishy: Satin blue shade
  • Beat: Micro glitter foiled peach shade
  • Legendary: Micro glitter foiled gold shade

Application Tips –  


Always use your favorite brush when painting your mug. Use a regular, but stronger brush to get the most color. For blending, using softer brushes is the way to go. To line the eyes, it’s best to use small, angled brushes.

Packaging:-

The palette comes in a hard holographic cardboard box which has a magnetic closure. The name of the palette written in golden glitter on top of carton box and on the top of the palette have the holographic design of eye makeup which makes the packaging of the palette beautiful. At the back of the carton box of the palette there is a message from Mannymua also which gives a personal touch to the palette.The palette comes up with a mirror which has a beautiful design surrounding it and in the mirror, it is written: "BE A QUEEN" which actually makes you feel special like MannyMua itself saying it to you whenever you open it...I know I am getting emotional with the packaging but if you truly love eyeshadow palette's packaging then this packaging of the palette definitely going to steal your heart.The palette comes up with a dual end high quality brush with which you can do some perfect eye makeup as the brush is so soft as well as we can do touch up too.

My Experience:-

Well, I am a big fan of Mannymua. Whatever I learned about eye makeup I learned mostly from his videos. So whenever he collab with any brands I make sure that I grab something from his collaboration and I keep on doing it till now. So when he launched his palette it was definite that I wanted it for my stash.
So the palettes has 14 shades of different finish matte, satin, and glitter. The palettes have 8 neutrals and 6 colored shades which together make the palette so colorful. The texture of each eyeshadow is buttery. And there is hardly any fallout. The eyeshadows are easy to blend and they are super pigmented. Even the shades of blue and purple blends easily which seem little difficult to work with.
Overall I just love love love the palette and it is a priceless and another beautiful palette for my collection.

Before I end my review let me tell you that LunarBeauty Life's a Drag Palette will be 33% off in this BLACK FRIDAY (23RD NOVEMBER) on their website.

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