REVIEW OF SWATCHES OF DOSE OF COLORS HOLIBAE SET

 "A good lipstick has the power of dress up to our lips"...

Today I am going to share my thoughts over DOSE OF COLORS HOLIBAE set. The set was launched during last holiday but all the shades in it are available individually on DOSE OF COLOR website. So If you like any you can definitely check it out. Thankfully they are not limited edition :)

Price of HOLIBAE SET was RS.3300/- whereas Individual liquid lipsticks are priced Rs.1800/- each ($18)

SHADE DESCRIPTION:-

DOSE OF COLOR HOLIBAE SET has 3 pretty red shades. They are:-
  • BITTERSWEET:- It is an orange-red shade.
  • STRAWBERRY POP:- It is a strawberry red shade.
  • EXTRA SAUCEY:- It is a deep red shade.

Among all 3 I love EXTRA SAUCEY most followed by STRAWBERRY POP.  The shade BITTERSWEET is little patchy and so I don't like it much.

DESCRIPTION:-

Our Liquid Matte Lipstick has a velvety high-fashion matte finish which envelops lips in rich, long-wearing color. It applies as a creamy liquid but after a few minutes, it dries to an ultra comfortable matte finish.

Colors may vary, the results of our colors may vary due to a number of factors including but not limited to; monitor resolution settings, lighting & skin tone, etc.

Tips: Exfoliate lips before use. Avoid oily/greasy foods.

  •     Cruelty-Free
  •     Gluten Free
  •     Paraben-Free

INGREDIENTS:-

Isododecane Synthetic Beeswax VP/Hexadecene Copolymer Octyldodecanol Cyclopentasiloxane C18-36 Acid Triglyceride Disteardimonium Hectorite Phenoxyethanol Alcohol denatured Ethylhexylglycerin MAY CONTAIN: ± D&C Red No.28 Aluminum Lake (CI 45410) FD&C Red No.40 Aluminum Lake (CI 16035) Titanium dioxide (CI 77891) FD&C Yellow No 5 Lake (CI 19140) Aluminum Oxide Red 6 Lake (CI 15850) D&C Red 27 Lake (CI 45410) FD&C Red 7 Calcium Lake (CI 15850:1) Iron Oxides (CI 77499) FD&C Blue No.1 Aluminum Lake (CI 42090)

DESCRIPTION
  • Exfoliate lips before use
  • Apply the liquid lipstick to the centre of the bottom lip and work outwards towards the lip line.

PACKAGING:-


The holibae set is very adorable set. The red color of the packaging was really popping out from my stash. Inside the box, there are 3 full-size liquid lipsticks which are 3 different tones of red. The lipstick itself comes in a matte case packaging like the regular liquid lipsticks of Dose of Colors with a white cap on it. The wand is a doe foot applicator for which it is easy to line and fill up the lips.


MY EXPERIENCE:-

I am a big fan of matte liquid lipsticks. The Dose of Colors was a hit and miss brand for me in past so I hardly buy from this brand. But the holibae set was looking so adorable then and I was on a shopping spree I bought this set.  Inside the set, there were 3 pretty different shades of red. BITTERSWEET, STRAWBERRY POP AND EXTRA SAUCEY. I love both STRAWBERRY POP AND EXTRA SAUCEY but BITTERSWEET is a bit patchy on my lips. I don't know why but every time I tried out any coral or orange shade from Dose of Colors I found they are patchy in texture.

Leaving the BITTERSWEET I really love the texture of the other two. They have mousse kind of consistency and they have a mild candy smell in it. The liquid lipsticks applied evenly on my lips and turn into matte within few seconds of applications. The liquid lipsticks stay intact on my lips 6-7 hours with a slight bit of fading if I eat or drink anything. These are transfer-proof but on dry lips, it will tend to dry out the lips more. So these lipsticks are not suitable for dry lips beauties. 


Overall the liquid lipsticks are the good one and if you want to try it you can try it but I would not recommend it as I have some better quality liquid lipsticks from other brands.











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

APPLICATION

Experience a new dimension of lip color with these simple techniques to enhance your lust-worthy pout.

    Begin by smoothing lips with an exfoliant, then gently neutralize natural lip color with a touch of concealer.
    To define the lip and enhance staying power, choose a coordinating PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencil.
Building colour opacity in layers:

  •     Use the finger to press and roll color onto the lip.
  •     Start in the middle of the bottom lip and transfer color onto the lips with the index finger, working outwards to either edge.
  •     Repeat on the top lip.

 For longer-lasting wear:

    After applying lipstick, gently pull a tissue apart so you end up with two thin sheets.
    Press one of the sheets against the lips and lightly dust with translucent setting powder.



Shade Description:-

I picked up 3 shades from this entire range. They are OMI, ELSON and FULL PANIC.

  • OMI: A muted medium dark pink with neutral undertone. It look a bit similar Mac Mehr on my lips.
  • ELSON: A cool red shade.
  • FULL PANIC: It is a warm fuchsia with a semi-matte finish that is limited edition

Ingredients:-
Isononyl Isononanoate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate Polybutene, Polyethylene Dicalcium Phosphate, Paraffin, Polyhydroxystearic Acid Synthetic Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax/Cera Carnauba/Cire De Carnauba, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil Stearic Acid, Microcrystalline Wax/Cera Microcristallina/Cire Microcristalline Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Squalane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Kaolin, Stearalkonium Hectorite Propylene Carbonate Nylon-12. May Contain (+/-): Titanium Dioxide (Cl 77891) Mica, Blue 1 Lake (Cl 42090), Red 6 (Cl 15850), Red 7 Lake (Cl 15850), Yellow 5 Lake C(L 19140) Yellow 6 Lake (Cl 15985), Red 28 Lake (Cl 45410), Red 30 Lake (Cl 73360), Iron Oxides (Cl 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499).


Packaging:-

 
Patmcgrathreal is a brand who always comes up with "luxury in packaging". Starting with the outer carton box with a unique way of opening and closing it with a thread, followed by the golden lip pout on the lip case everything is just pure luxury in packaging. The lipstick case feels a bit heavy and it adds a class in your lipstick stash (packaging wise).

My Experience:-



When it is Patmcgrathreal, then it is simply wastage of time that how the products will be. Patmcgrathreal is famous for its quality. Anyone tried out this brand will definitely become addicted to grabbing more products from this brand. I tried out their MatteTrance lipsticks first as I am a die hard fan of matte lipsticks. The very first day I applied the lipstick I just have fallen in love with the quality of these lipsticks. I picked up three shades back to back as I was loving the texture of these lipsticks so much.

The texture of the lipsticks is matte but comfortable one. They are super pigmented. One swipe and bammmmmm! you will get an opaque coverage. The lipsticks are comfort matte on my lips. If we dab a tissue on top of these lipsticks this will turn super matte and it will increase the longitivity of wearing time of lipsticks. The lipstick stays 8 hours+ on my lips with slight fading. The dark shades leave a light stain on my lips even after removing it properly.

In short, these lipsticks lays down a high impact with a strong finish. These are one of the best lipsticks in the makeup world. The only con of these lipsticks is they are little pricey. But again good things come with a price tag.











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

INGREDIENTS:
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Synthetic Wax, Cera Microcristallina, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Nylon-12, Polyethylene, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Propylparaben, BHT (+/-) CI 77891, CI 77491, CI 77499, CI 77492

Packaging:-
The foundation comes in a stick kind of packaging. One has to twist it up to apply it. The packaging is sleek and travel-friendly.

Experience:-

MAKEUP REVOLUTION FAST BASE STICK FOUNDATION comes in 18 shades in which I picked up shade no F8 which is a little lighter shade on my Mac Nc 30-35 (as I tanned a bit).  The foundation has no brush in it (like the sugar one read here http://www.makeupandbeautty.com/2018/04/review-of-sugar-cosmetics-ace-of-face.html). One has to twist up and apply the foundation and then you can blend it with your any beauty blender, sponge or brush (as per your convenience).

The foundation has medium coverage for which if you want high coverage you need to build it. The foundation is a little thick for which a small amount is enough for entire face else one might end up looking cakey. The foundation blends effortlessly and it stays 7 hours +. The foundation tends to oxidize a bit on my skin tone. As I bought little lighter shade so thankfully it goes perfectly on my skin tone.

Now here are few down points:-

  1. Too much of this foundation can make you feel heavy on your skin.
  2. The foundation is good for dry skin people only. Oily skin people should stay away from this else you might end up looking sweaty and oily. And if oily skin people still want to try it then my suggestion is to try it in winter, not in summer.
  3. The foundation oxidizes a bit so one needs to be careful while choosing the foundation.

Overall the foundation is a "MISS" for me as I have oily skin and it doesn't suit me. The face application might make you tempted to buy it but these pictures were taken immediately after application so judge my review by my face swatch picture (lol...I am just trying to save your money).








So that's all for today. See you in my next blog post.
Till then byeeee.

REVIEW AND SWATCHES KYLIE KOKO COLLECTION




Hey Guys,

Today I am going to share my thoughts over KYLIE COSMETICS KOKO COLLECTION  product. The collection was launched one year back (supposed to be a limited edition). It is still available on kylie cosmetics website (thankfully, else my review would have no value at all...lol).

The collection has one face palette and four liquid lipsticks. The face palette is named as KOKO COLLECTION FACE PALETTE. The four liquid lipsticks are available as lipstick sets which are named as IN LOVE WITH THE KOKO set. The entire set is available as bundles or one can buy each product individually too.
The Koko collection face palette and those four liquid lipsticks BUNNY, DOLL, BABY GIRL, SUGAR PLUM  are now available as singles too.

KOKO COLLECTION FACE PALETTE:-

The face palette is one of mine favorite face palette.


Price:- $40.
Instagram seller price:- Rs.400-4200/-.
Availability:- KYLIE COSMETICS WEBSITE

DESCRIPTION:-


The Koko Kollection Pressed Powder Face Palette contains:

  •     1 Satin Pressed Powder Blush (net weight / pods net 1 X 8.5 grams / 1 X 0.30 oz)
  •     2 Pressed Illuminating Powder (net weight / pods net 2 X 4.5 grams / 1 X 0.16 oz)
  •     1 Matte Pressed Powder Bronzer (net weight / pods net 1 X 7.5 grams / 1 X 0.26 oz)

The Koko Kollection Face Palette contains 1 Satin Powder Blush, 2 Pressed Illuminating Powders and 1 Matte Pressed Powder Bronzer:

  • Rodeo Drive is a warm pink satin.
  • Troop Beverly Hills is a shimmering soft gold.
  • 90210 is a shimmering golden peach.
  • Hollywood Blvd is a satin medium bronze.


Satin Pressed Powder Blush:

 
The satin pressed powder blush (Rodeo Drive) is a soft, buildable blush that can be used to create the perfect flush. 

Pressed Illuminating Powder:
The pressed illuminating powder highlighter (Troop Beverly Hills, 90210) is a silky, shimmering highlighter that can be used to create your perfect customized glow.

Matte Pressed Powder Bronzer:

 
The matte pressed powder bronzer (Hollywood Blvd) is a soft, blend-able bronzer that can be used to create the perfect subtle glow.

Packaging:-

 
By packaging wise Kylie nailed the KOKO COLLECTION FACE PALETTE. The outer carton box is white in color with the name of the palette on top of it in gold. Whereas the palette itself comes in a golden hard cardboard with the name of the palette in white embossed on the upper lid of the palette. The palette has a big mirror and it doesn't have any brush in it. The palette is sleek but huge in size. It is a little heavy too.

My Experience:-

Kylie cosmetics KOKO COLLECTION FACE PALETTE was my first ever buy of face palette from this brand so I can't compare with anything similar from this brand. But as I am a collector of high-end brand face palettes I can say from that point of view, "KYLIE KOKO COLLECTION FACE PALETTE is one of her best creation". The palette has awesome pigmentation. The texture of bronzer, blush, and highlighter are super soft. They blend easily on my skin. The only con of this palette is it will be perfect for people who have fair to medium skin tone. On Indian skin, the palette will go perfectly only on fair skin tone beauties. As there is no shades option in this face palette so I think it is the only con of this palette. Otherwise, it is an undoubtedly awesome palette. 








KYLIE MATTE LIPSTICK BABY GIRL:-

From the "IN LOVE WITH THE KOKO set" I picked up only one liquid lipstick named "BABY GIRL". 


Price:- $17 for 0.11 fl oz./oz. liq / 3.25 g.
Availability:- KYLIE COSMETICS WEBSITE



Packaging:- 

 
The lipstick comes in a gold lipstick packaging which makes the lipstick looks so luxe and gorgeous. The wand of the lipstick is nice but as it is little longer in size so I find a bit difficult to line my lips with that.

My Experience:-

"The Matte Liquid Lipstick has high-intensity pigment for an instant bold matte lip. The extremely long-wearing lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel that does not dry your lips out."

Baby Girl is a warm muted coral. The texture of kylie cosmetics matte liquid lipsticks is always good. They are neither too runny nor too thick. But with time the liquid turn little thick then I find it a bit difficult to apply it. The lipstick stays pretty throughout the day without fading or cracking with time. The lipstick fades only if you eat something oily. But if you are little cautious during eating the lipstick will survive your oily meal too. The liquid lipsticks are quite comfortable on my lips for first 4-5 hours after that my lips quench for some moisturizer so I remove my lipstick and reapply them after moisturizing it a bit with lip balm. In that way, it survives another 4-5 hours happily on my lips.
Overall Kylie liquid lipsticks are just like any other liquid lipsticks of Colourpop one with a little better in quality.






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

  • STILL CRAZY:- A mauvey pink shade.
  • GHOSTED:- A medium rose shade.
  • WHAT IF:-  A cool-toned fuchsia shade.

I picked 3 MATTE COLOURPOP LUX LIPSTICKS:-

  • MIND TRICK:- A brick red shade.
  • MAXED OUT:- A vibrant fuchsia shade.
  • HI STRIKER: - A blue-red shade.


DESCRIPTION:-

Crème Lux Lipstick

Matte Lux Lipstick

This full coverage matte lipstick is packed full of the finest pigments to give you long-wearing, true color in all the shades. The velvety matte finish is comfortable and non-drying, while soft blurring pigments lessen the look of fine lines. Enriched with Pomegranate, Goji Fruit, and Green Seed extracts to protect your lips from environmental stressors and premature aging.

Application Tips

First prime your lips with our Lippie Primer to provide a smooth surface for your lipstick, then define your lips with Lippie Pencil and now you're ready to apply your Lux Lipstick.

Packaging:-

 
Both the matte and creme lux lipsticks have the same kind of packaging. The outer carton box is white in color whereas the lipstick case is rose gold packaging with tiny stars on it. The packaging of lipsticks really luxe and classy. The bullet of the lipsticks has some tiny stars shape impression which makes the lipstick bullet look cute. Overall I love the packaging and they are just perfect to flaunt in front of others.

My Experience:-

The texture of both lipsticks is little waxy for which they glide super smoothly on my dry lips too. The creme lux lipsticks are a little creamier than the matte one. But both the lipsticks are super pigmented. One swipe and you will get the exact shade on your lips. The creme lipsticks stay 4-5 hours on my lips while the matte ones stay little longer. I personally love the matte lipsticks more as if I dab the matte lipstick with a tissue paper after application it transforms into velvety matte that stays throughout the day(if you are not having oily food). Both the lipsticks are not transfer-proof and so they do transfer a little bit. The creme lipsticks transfer more than the matte one but as they stain my lips badly so I can carry this lipstick stain for hours even after fading.


In short creme, lux lipsticks are perfect for people who don't like matte lipsticks or have dry lips problem. Whereas the matte lipsticks are perfect for a matte lover. I personally love the matte one more over the creme one.










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

REVIEW AND DEMO OF SUGAR COSMETICS ALL SET TO GO TRANSLUCENT POWDER


"A NEW LAUNCH FROM SUGAR COSMETICS WHICH CAN BE USED ON ANY TYPE OF MAKEUP AND ON ANY TYPE OF SKIN."


Hi Everyone,


Sugar cosmetics has geared up with another new launch product. The product is a much-needed one in a drugstore brand. They launch a "setting powder" named as "ALL SET TO GO TRANSLUCENT POWDER".

Price:- RS.599/- for 7gm of product.
Availability:-
The powder will be available on sugar cosmetics website from today.

Packaging:-

The powder comes in a cute square kind of container. The upper lid is black in color while the container is a transparent one. The name sugar embossed on top of the black lid of the powder case. The case open and close with a click sound. Inside the case, there is a small square shaped mirror and a square-shaped sponge which is soft but as it is too small it is only good for touch up. The tiny holes in the case actually regulate the amount of powder.

My experience:-

The powder is white in color. If touched with fingers one can feel there are finely milled one. The powder is lightweight. It magically blends into the skin giving a fresh and matte look without creating any white cast. The power can be used all over the face to set the makeup. It keeps my makeup intact for hours in this sweaty summers for approx 5 hours.

Now here are my few tips and tricks that you can do with this powder:-

  • Need to set your concealer? no worries, take out a little amount of this powder and dab on your concealing area and then blend.
  • Need to set your high coverage foundation but don't want to look cakey? grab a flat top brush and apply this powder all over your face and neck to get that flawless look.
  • Now you can now bake your face easily with this affordable powder as it requires a very little amount. Leave it for few minutes and then just dust it off.
  • Want to turn your creamy lipsticks into matte one? take a little amount of this powder on beauty blender dab on top of lipstick, let it be there for few minutes and then just dust it off with a big flat brush. And see your regular creamy lipstick turned now into true matte one.

So these are all the tips and tricks that you can try out with this powder. Now no more looking for high end setting powder when you have your own Sugar setting powder.











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