BEST OF LAKME 9-5 PRIME + MATTE LIPSTICK SWATCHES



Hey Everyone,

As Durga Puja is just around the corner so probably you will see loads of makeup and beauty related talk for festivals on my blog and on my youtube Channel too for a few weeks from now.

So recently Lakme has launched 30 beautiful shades in their Lakme 9-5 PRIME + MATTE lipsticks range (Thankfully!!! ).
So it is a big confusion that which lipsticks one should pick from this entire Range.
So after a lot of research, I managed to grab four lipsticks.

Price:- Rs. 480/- for 3.6g.
Availability:- Lakme stores, Nykaa store (online too), Amazon.in

The shades I picked are:-

MAPLE MAP- A perfect nude lipstick for daily wear, perfect for fair to medium skin tone. One of my recent favorite nude lipstick.

ROSY SUNDAY- A perfect rosy nude shade of lipstick that will look equally flattering on all skin tone. Due to such versatile shade of this lipstick, that people are loving it so much. So, yes, it is a very famous shade in this entire range for which almost everyone has it).

PLUM PICK- A beautiful magenta kind of pink shade which will look beautiful on all complexion.

BERRY BASE- A perfect berry shade with red undertone a bit. Again a versatile shade for everyone.

Packaging:-

 
The lipsticks come in a rose gold kind of carton box (like the usual packaging of 9-5 Lakme range). The lipstick comes in a glossy rose gold metal look case (same the usual 9-5 range of Lakme). Overall I love the packaging as the case of the lipsticks are so "Luxe".

My experience:-

Lakme definitely doing a great job nowadays by coming up one after another some awesome lipstick range. And this Lakme 9-5 PRIME + MATTE lipsticks range is one of the most affordable lipsticks. The texture of the lipstick is satin matte. They glide super smoothly on lips. It turns a bit matte after few minutes of application but definitely, it stays comfortable on lips for hours. Previously Lakme lipsticks do have a strong scent for which I use to avoid buying Lakme lipsticks but this one has no smell ( a very light smell which fades after few seconds of application) for which I just love it. The pigmentation of the lipstick is quite good as 1-2 swipes is enough to get an opaque coverage. The lipsticks stay pretty 4-5 hours on my lips ( declining the claim of 9-5 hours). The lighter shades fade leaving no stain while the brighter and darker shades leave a light stain on my lips which is at least a good point for me. I love the lipsticks that stain my lips as after fading I can still wear it few more hours.

Overall these lipsticks are definitely budget friendly and must have lipsticks for your stash. Moreover, the shade range is so vast I guess everyone can find out at least something for them for sure.



So here is the video where I have swatched all the 4 lipsticks that I grab.




Here are few more pictures:

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF HUDA BEAUTY TEXTURED SHADOWS PALETTE WITH ROSE GOLD EDITION:-





"I literally dreamt about the colors in this palette, and it’s finally come to life!” Beauty guru and entrepreneur Huda Kattan blends her makeup expertise and obsession all in her debut eyeshadow palette. Raising the bar with her unique Textured Shadows, she’s created a palette of highly saturated mattes, chrome pressed pearls, and 3D metal shadows. Talc-free and buildable, the colors deliver maximum payoff for easy on-the-go, or came-to-slay metallic and smoky looks. Consider it a complete wardrobe for your eyes, no matter what the mood or occasion. An ode to Huda’s favorite metallic, the sophisticated Rose Gold, this timeless collection will be your new can’t-live-without palette."
                                                                     HUDA KATTAN

"The palette that has some amazing combination of shades with a see through lid which makes it so attractive from outside that it is the dream to have it on stash for every makeup lover:- is the talk of today's post...

Now as this palette going to be discontinued soon (replacing by a new palette of Huda Beauty) I think it is the high time that I should talk about it.

Let's not talk in terms of usual formal way of review today as I am bit sentimental while writing about this palette.

The reason of being emotional, as it going to be discontinued soon so many makeup lovers who still don't have it will never have it in future.

Secondly, I remember the moment when I grabbed this palette from Cult Beauty (when there was the speedy delivery of 5 days in my location with no customs).

The palette was priced by the Instagram seller as Rs.5000/- to 6000/- each which I think was too much for me(I know they had to go through customs). So after grabbing my ABH MODERN RENAISSANCE  palette from Cult Beauty at almost half price (as a sale was going on abh at that time), I was pretty sure that I will grab this Huda Beauty palette from Cult Beauty in less price than Instagram sellers.

I was a truly mad behind this palette at that time who used to check at every early morning(say 6 am) or late night (say 2 pm) whether it was restocked in Cult Beauty or not...the very fine early morning I saw it in stock I ordered it in Rs.4237/- approx(yes as I had one promotional discount too at that time).

Now the palette whom I was stalking from so long does really worth to buy?
- Well, the price I paid for it Rs.4237/- approx. at that price YES,  but from Instagram Sellers in Rs.5k-6k? NO

Does it worth buying?


- Well, if you want some really gorgeous palette with some warm and beautiful shades and glitters at one go then definitely it is worth buying. The palette has every single warm shade that anyone can use to create any look (warm shades look only). Moreover, it has some all time go to glitter pressed pigments which one can use to add more glamour to the look. The eyeshadows are smooth in texture and highly pigmented. They are easy to blend and has least fallout. In fact, there are no shades that are chalky. Even the glitters are easy to apply with fingers or wet brushes on eyelids.

How will you justify yourself for buying such a costly palette when you readers who love to have this palette but can't afford?
- First of all, I will not justify myself for buying such costly palette because I admit that it is expensive. But being a passionate makeup lover who appreciates every single makeup (no matter which brand owner did what to others) and a beauty blogger I couldn't stop myself getting it as the palette is very tempting.
Now the palette is definitely pretty glamorous in packaging but if you see it a little closer you can see that every single shade is dupable in this palette. You can have the dupe of each shade in this palette at a less price from other brand and so the glitters too. So if you can't afford then definitely you can try out from other brands.

My final words:-


Definitely it is expensive palette but still, I will recommend it. If you can afford it then grab it soon because it is a great palette with an awesome combination of glitter, matte, and shimmer shades. This one palette and you can be sorted for life.A Perfect Textured Shadows palette with Rose Gold Edition".












So, hope you like my new way of doing today's post. I will catch up you all soon. Until then stay beautiful:*

REVIEW AND SWATCHES OF JUVIA'S PLACE ZULU PALETTE




Hey everyone,

As palette reviewing series going on these days and as I am on little break for YouTube now (my voice choked due to cold) so giving rest to my voice and putting effort through fingers let's start today's review.


Today's talk of the post is the new JUVIA'S PLACE ZULU PALETTE.


The brand
Juvia's place never disappoints me when it comes to trying out their any new palette like NUBIAN 2 or  MASQUERADE one. All those palettes have awesome pigmentation. So when Juvia's place launches a new palette named ZULU PALETTE, I was pretty sure that I had to grab this colorful one too.

Price:- $17.50 in the
Juvia's place website.
            Instagram seller price:- Rs.1800/- - Rs.2000/- approx.

Availability:- In the
Juvia's place website (https://www.juviasplace.com/products/the-zulu-eye-shadow-palette), Instagram sellers.

Packaging:-


The palette comes in a white color packaging with a same Egyptian figure on top of the box (which is holographic one) and on the top of the palette cover too. The palette has no mirror and brush. The palette close with a magnetic closure. Overall the packaging is sleek, small and easy to carry while traveling.

My experience:-


The Juvia's place Zulu palette is a limited edition palette which is still available on their website along with most Instagram sellers. The palette draws my attention only because of the presence of all vibrant eyeshadows. The palette has a mixture of both matte and shimmers vibrant shades. The eyeshadows are not chalky at all and have a smooth texture which looks super pigmented when swatching with fingers. The eyeshadows blend easily on the eyelid and there is hardly any fallouts.The palette is perfect to create some artistic exotic day and night look. The eyeshadows stay pretty 7-8 hours on my eyelids without any primer.
Overall I am just loving the palette. So, if you are an eyeshadow lover and love funky and bold colors on lid then definitely you can check this one out ;)











That's all for today.
Until next time...
Love Sammy :*
