MAKEUP REVOLUTION PRO HIGHLIGHTER- ILLUMINATE II REVIEW II SWATCHES



"Who don't love to highlight the best part and hide the flaws"...

Hey Everyone,

So today I am going to highlight a new product that is recently added to my stash...
Yes, today I am going to share my recent love MAKEUP REVOLUTION PRO HIGHLIGHTER- ILLUMINATE.

Price:- Rs.850/-for such a huge pan of 15g.

Availability:- 


Few more info about the highlighter:-

  •     Brighten and highlight your face with this Pro Illuminate.
  •     By adding a subtle glow this creates a natural touch of illumination throughout the year.
  •     Using a powder brush, swipe against areas of the face to add highlight.

Packaging:-

The highlighter comes in a huge round pan. The lid of the pan is transparent for which it is easy to see the highlighter shade from outside. The pan has no mirror or no brush enclosed with it. The lid of the pan close with a "tick" sound.

My experience:-

Okay, so it was the very first day when the famous YouTuber "Malvika" shows her blinding highlight on Instagram that I fall in love with this highlighter. The first thing I notice is the shade of the highlighter and second thing I noticed was the size of the pan of the highlighter which will lasts forever. It is worth mentioning that it is actually she who makes me tempted to try out this highlighter. And so when the highlighter was on 25% discount I immediately grabbed it without giving a second thought(don't feel bad if you miss the discount opportunity, just keep your eye on hokmakeup.com and Nykaa.com, you never know as they keep on giving discounts on this brand mostly).

Makeup Revolution is a brand which is quite affordable and they are just awesome in quality. My first try was a pr package (reviewed here ) but after that, I just fall in love with this brand. I bought a palette (yet to review) too from this brand.

Slowly and lately I turn into blinding highlighter person from a very subtle highlighter lover. My love for highlighters shows in my collection where I started collecting highlighter as crazy. And this new highlighter just added a feather in my crown of a collection of highlighters.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION PRO HIGHLIGHTER- ILLUMINATE is a beautiful white golden highlighter with subtle shimmer in it which will suit every skin tone beauties. In fact this highlighter is my current favorite and go-to highlighter now. The highlighter has a buttery texture and super pigmented. A little goes a long way. It blends effortlessly into skin without enhancing the visibility of pores on the skin. The highlighter stays perfect on my skin for 5 hours after that it does scatter a little bit on cheek area (but that is my fault as I always touch my face with hands). The highlighter has a buildable blinding coverage if you use with heavy-handed or it can be your subtle highlighter when used with light-handed. The highlighter is just perfect for warm Indian skin tone beauties whereas for cool undertone it might look little bit icy cool kind off on them.

I love the highlighter so much that I always end up applying it on top of my eyeshadows on my upper eyelid area or on my tear duct area to highlight or to highlight my brow bone area too (you know you can use any highlighter in many ways other than just highlighting).

Overall my final verdict over MAKEUP REVOLUTION PRO HIGHLIGHTER- ILLUMINATE is, if you are looking for some affordable good quality highlighter then definitely try out this MAKEUP REVOLUTION PRO HIGHLIGHTER- ILLUMINATE highlighter.












That's all for today. Until next time...

REVIEW & SWATCHES ELF POWDER BLUSH PALETTE (LIGHT).



Hey everyone,
Today I am going to review ELF powder blush palette in shade light. ELF is an affordable international brand after Colourpop cosmetics.

Price:- $6.

A little more info about ELF powder blush palette:-
Enjoy 4 complementing shades that allow you to mix and match to create different looks. Create a beautifully pigmented look that lasts all day. 

How to use:-

  • Use the shades individually or create your own custom blush by swirling a blush brush over your chosen shades.
  •  Apply the blush to the apples of the cheeks and blend out using circular motions.
  •  The formulas can also be worn as eyeshadow.

Ingredients:-

 
Mica, Talc, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Silica, Nylon-12, PTFE, Zinc Stearate, Dimethicone, Tocopheryl Acetate (Ve)
May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), Red 28 Lake (CI 45410).


Packaging:-

 
The blush palette comes in a square magnetic sleek black color case. The palette has no brush but it has a mirror enclosed with it. The palette has a magnetic closure that securely closes the palette. It is a cruelty-free brand so a big thumbs up for this brand.

My experience:-

ELF powder blush palette comes in two shade: light and dark. As I am NC 30 so I picked up the shade light. The palette has two pink shades, one coral and another one is mauve kind off the shade. All the four shades have the buttery texture. They blend smoothly on skin without much effort. The blush palette is highly pigmented for which one has to be careful while applying the blushes. The blushes stay pretty 8+ hours during winters but it fades away within 5 hours during summer if you sweat a lot(otherwise it stay one or two hours more). Among the four blushes in the palette, three shades are matte while one has subtle shimmers on it. The size of the pan of each blush is huge for which it will last forever.

My thought:-

I just love this blush palette as this one has 4 variety of shades that can be used as eyeshadows and blushes too(like the brand suggested). Moreover, the price of the palette is affordable and due to its sleek packaging, it is easy to carry anywhere.

Overall, ELF powder blush palette is a good investment for makeup beginners or makeup lovers who want to try different blushes in affordable price.

*NEW* SUGAR COSMETICS MATTE AS HELL LIP CRAYONS II REVIEW II SWATCHES




Hey Everyone,
So today I am going to review and swatch SUGAR COSMETICS MATTE AS HELL CRAYON newly launched shades.

Price:- Rs.799/- each.
Availability:- Sugar cosmetics online and store.

These crayon lipsticks are available in 10 shades earlier in which sugar cosmetics has added 3 new shades to it. I pick two shades from this newly launched one, they are MURPHY BROWN  and BABY HOUSEMAN.

MURPHY BROWN:  A beautiful dark brown shade which is perfect for fall. The shade is versatile one which will suit every skin tone beauties.

BABY HOUSEMAN: A beautiful berry pink shade which is another versatile shade for every skin tone beauties and my personal favorite too.

Packaging:-

The "matte as hell crayon lipsticks" come in a signature abstract designed carton box of sugar cosmetics. The crayon lipstick comes in a broad black crayon pencil kind of packaging. Each crayon lipstick comes up with an individual sharpener.

My Experience:-

The crayon lipsticks are super pigmented, 1-2 swipe is enough to get opaque coverage. The texture of the crayons is creamy for which they glide super smoothly on lips giving a very velvety kind of finish on lips.
The lip crayons turn comforts matte texture after few minutes of application. But these lip crayons are not transferred proof at first during application but once you press your lipstick with a dry tissue it will turn semi-matte finish giving a velvety smooth look on lips. It fades a little bit from the middle part of lips whenever I eat any oily foods(which is quite a common factor in most of the lipsticks) for which I prefer to touch up every time it fades. The lip crayons due to high pigmentation and semi-matte texture it stays throughout the day on my lips.

The only down point about this lip crayon is that these crayons need to sharpen which mean there is wastage of a little amount of product. I wish they come up with twist-up packaging.

Overall if you are looking for some comfort matte fall lipsticks then you can try this new shades from "MATTE AS HELL CRAYON" range of Sugar Cosmetics.


 Here is the video on these lip crayons



Finally few pictures...
 









That's all for today. Until next time...

The lip crayons although turn comforts matte texture after few minutes of application. But these lip crayons are not transferred proof so one has to be careful while eating or drinking. It fades a little bit from the middle part of lips whenever I eat any oily foods(which is quite a common factor in most of the lipsticks) for which I prefer to touch up every time it fades. The lip crayons due to high pigmentation stay pretty 6 hours on my lips. The fading process happens so evenly that one can carry these lip color one hour more after fading.
