My favorites from Deborah Milano

1. Deborah Milano Love My Lashes Mascara Volume:-

I love mascaras. They are my lifeline, I can’t walk out of my house without slapping some mascara on. This mascara does wonders for my lashes. It is a voluminous mascara and will make your lashes look bigger and more glamorous. I have a lot of black mascaras and was getting bored with them so, tried this brown one and realised how brown compliments my skin tone better than the black one.

It comes enriched with natural and synthetic and acacia gum for proper adhesion. Furthermore, the wavy bristle tips help in even distribution. It is priced at Rs 450.

Wavy Bristle Tip

2. Deborah Milano Extra LipStick:-

We have all tried to achieve the perfect 3 D ombre lips and have failed  many times. This limited edition lipstick was designed to create the ultra cool trend. It comes in 12 shades and I am the proud owner of the shade number 10 Rouge Noir.

The lipstick comes with a sponge tip applicator which helps produces a three-dimensional matte look. It is a very pigmented lipstick in matte texture. Enriched with minerals and plant-based waxes, the advanced formula glides on easily and precisely, and will take you through the whole day. It is Priced at Rs 950

3. Deborah Milano 24 Ore  long-lasting lip pencil:-

Lip pencils are a must have for every women. I find lip pencils better than lipsticks as they are more handy and easier to use. The Deborah Milano 24ORE Long Lasting Lip Pencil comes in a retractable design. It is a non transferable, smudge-proof lip color.

These lip pencils come in 8 shades. I am going to swatch number 02 (Vivid Red) and number 04 (Pink Cyclamen) for you. They are priced at Rs 595 each.

Euphorbia box- Review

I love trying out beauty boxes and I am always on a lookout for new and affordable ones.

In the month of October I saw a few of my friends review a new box that was super affordable and with an impressive selection of products in the October box.

So I placed order for the box, they were sold out for the October month and I just got my first box in November.

This blog is to review the Euphorbia box.

IMG_6151.JPG

Here is a little bit about the box from their website. Euphorbia box is a small, family-owned start-up company. The box is designed to help users explore the world of beauty & skin care products and discover their favorite products in a convenient, effortless and affordable way.

Lets take a look November’s Euphorbia Box-

Packaging-

It is a simple carboard box with Euphorbia box written in blue with the products nicely bubble wrapped inside.

I like the simplicity of the packaging.IMG_6155.JPGIMG_6181.JPG

Price-

I got this box at the launching price of Rs 199. This months box is now available for Rs 248IMG_6165

Products-IMG_6162.JPG

1. Ang-Tatva Kaya Tatva Scrub-off (Rs 345 for 75g)

This herbal scrub looks interesting and I look forward to trying this product, however I am surprised that manufacturing date is not mentioned on this product. It has a very strong scent of turmeric but I don’t mind that.IMG_6167.JPGIMG_6171.JPG

2. HM Have More Dry Matte Nail Polish (Rs 299)

From the packaging the nail paint does not look very expensive as the print and the bottle looks cheap so I am bit surprised that the product retails for Rs 299. The colour is red and I am not too excited about the product.IMG_6173.JPG

3. BioBloom Face Wash (Rs 160 for 30ml)

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting any sample products in the box as there were none in he October box. This sample size product is paraben ans sulphate free which is definitely a good thing but, it is too tiny to impress me.IMG_6176.JPG

4. Duft Facial Wipes (Rs 79 for 25wipes)

They are alcohol and paraben free wipes and I can’t complain about them.IMG_6179.JPG

5. Mama Earth Sunscreen SPF 20+ (sample size of 7ml)

This was a bummer. This sample size product is for children of age 0-5 years so not useful for me at all. I mean I am sure not all the people ordering this box are people with children so, including this tiny sample as a product is just ridiculous. IMG_6178.JPG

My verdict

At this time I am just scared because I ordered a 3 months subscription and I am dreading the next two month’s boxes. Overall I am disappointed with the selection of products available in the November box especially when I compare it with the impressive product range that were available in the month of October. This month’s box was just boring. It just failed in every aspect possible. I am struggling to call the box average. I hope the curators can make the December box full of surprises.

Hope you found this review helpful. Please leaves your thoughts about the box in the comments below.

I always love hearing from you guys and you can get in touch with me by emailing me on barkha.vyas06@gmail.com

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour- Fashion Legacy- Review and Swatches

Hey Guys,

Sometime back I had posted a picture of me on Instagram and Facebook, my lipstick gained a lot of attention! So I decided to dedicate one post to the much talked about lipstick. The lipstick I am talking about is my go to RED lipstick- MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour in the shade FASHION LEGACY. Lets take a closer look at the lipstick.PSX_20170809_173705

THE PACKAGING:-

The packaging like every MAC product ; very chic. This is a liquid  lipstick therefore it doesn’t come in the signature black capsuled packaging. It comes in a beautiful see through plastic packaging. The cap of the lipstick is the classic black MAC packaging with MAC printed in silver.IMG_6144.JPGIMG_6145.JPG

PRICE:-

INR 1800

THE APPLICATOR:-

The applicator is attached to this beautiful transparent wand. This sponge applicator is soft. As the applicator wand is short, it helps in precise application.IMG_6148.JPG

PIGMENTATION :-

This lipstick is very pigmented. A single swipe is sufficient to cover your lips completely. Amazing pigmentation makes it difficult to get the lipstick off though.IMG_20171011_154007_729.jpg

TEXTURE:-

The lipstick is quite thick and creamy, certainly not a lightweight translucent texture. It sets quickly to a totally matte finish.

STAYING POWER:-

Lipstick stays on your lips for as long as you want but it does get dry and starts cracking in around 5 hours. It cracks  up in the middle and the powder starts settling on the borders of your lips. So, you do need to touch it up in every 4-5 hours.

SWATCHES:-PSX_20171024_115521PSX_20171024_115512.jpg

PROS:-

  1. Highly pigmented
  2. Chic packaging
  3. Excellent quality
  4. Good staying power
  5. Absolutely matte

CONS:-

  1. Expensive
  2. Needs touching up
  3. Starts cracking and drying after a few hours

RATING:-

3.8/5

Hope you found  this blog post helpful. I will soon be back with another post. Till then stay connected with me through Instagram and Facebook.

New Launch – Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lips- ORANGE CANDY (Review and Swatches)

Lakme has recently collaborated with Masaba Gupta ( Fashion designer) to launch a new range of Lakme’s classic lip pout collection – Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lips. The collection includes 10 matte lipsticks. The collection screams Masaba’s signature with the candy prints and a mix of bright and nude colors. The price of the Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lips is Rs.750. The available shades in the collection are:-

  1. Cherry Bite
  2. Cotton Candy
  3. Hot Bubble Pink
  4. Hot Chocolate
  5. Hot Pink Queen
  6. Orange Candy
  7. Roll A Cola
  8. Smoky Red
  9. Sugar n Spice
  10. Caramel Toffeemasaba12.jpg

Review And Swatches- ORANGE CANDY

The lipsticks shades are all very bright and attractive, so it was very hard to choose a shade. I wanted to try the texture of the lipstick before buying them all, therefore I ended up buying Orange Candy.

Packaging:-

The packaging is very bright, funky and attractive. The lipstick crayon comes in a plastic tube with a rotating retractor. PSX_20170626_131638.jpgPSX_20170626_131608.jpg

Colour:-

As the name suggests Orange Candy is a bright ORANGE shade. PSX_20170626_131537.jpg

Texture:-

The lipstick is named Lakme Absolute Lip Pouts Matte Masaba Lips but this is absolutely MISLEADING. The lipsticks are NOT matte, its more of a creme lipstick. It is also not waterproof or smudge-proof.PSX_20170626_131513.jpg

My Opinion:-

I wasn’t paid to write this review and its a totally honest opinion. It is very disappointing to see big brands collaborating with famous designers creating these highly advertised collections which are just lies and false claims. If I am paying 750 Rs for a matte lipstick, I expect to get a matte lipstick. This is a creme lipstick not a matte one. Also it doesn’t last that long and gets smudged easily.

Pros:-

  • Nice Pacakging
  • Easily available
  • Available in vibrant 10 shades
  • Available in a easy rotating retractable tube

Cons:-

  • Not matte
  • Not waterproof
  • Not smudge-proof
  • Not long lasting
  • expensive
  • smells weird
  • Falsely advertised

To conclude I would like to say I am very much disappointed in the promotion campaign of the product and the product itself. It is not right for big brands to falsely advertise their products.

Follow me on Instagram and Facebook for my honest opinions and reviews.

JUVIA’S PLACE ‘THE SAHARAN’ PALETTE: REVIEWS AND SWATCHES

Hello everyone,

Today I am going to talk about Juvia’s place ‘The Saharan’ Palette. It was launched last year and is priced at $28.00. IMG_0049.JPG

ABOUT THE PALETTE and INGREDIENTS:-wp-image-285992061png.png

THE PACKAGING:-

The Packaging is a lot similar to the other Juvia’s Place palettes. It’s a cardboard palette with pans of eye-shadows spread out within it. The front of the palette is red in color with mint trims.

IMG_0046.JPG

THE INSPIRATION:-

The vibrant and lively shades are inspired by the Wodaabe festivities of the Fulani culture. At the end of September the Wodaabe people gather together and the young men dress up in elaborate costumes and makeup and perform songs and dances to impress the marriageable women.IMG_0051.JPG

THE SHADES:-

The amount of product in the palette is 18g/ .63oz. This palette contains 12 eye-shadows; 6 Metallic shades, 2 Satin shades and 4 Matte shades. IMG_0052.JPG

MY EXPERIENCE:-

I just fell in love with the palette. Its beautiful!! All the shades are extremely pigmented. The matte Shades (Chad, Sokoto, Jamila and Katsina) are very smooth and not at all chalky.

The Metallic shades (Fula, Senegal, Kia, Wodaabe, Bororo, Iman) are breathtaking and very shimmery.

The Satin shades (Lulu, Zoya) are silky and had very little amount of fall outs.

I created this look using the shades Chad, Sokoto, Bororo, Wadaabe and Zoya.

MY VERDICT:-

I would recommend everyone to invest in this palette. This is a beauty and a must have. Some of the shades like Katsina and Zoya are not that visible on Indian skin tone but the other matte and metallic foils are just amazing. The formula is one of the best on the market, with all shades being very buttery and highly pigmented. on the top of all this, I think the palette is very decently priced.

Do follow me on Instagram and Facebook for more swatches and beauty posts.

Do follow my blog and show some love ❤ I will see you guys soon with more exciting stuff. Till then stay happy and stylish.

April favorites :)

Hello Everyone,

I am enjoying the sh*t out of summers. Chuski, swimming, ice-creams, mangoes and watermelons… I am just loving it all. Enough said about the season’s favorites, 😛 lets get talking about my favorite skin care and makeup products for the month of April.

  1. NYX Full Throttle Shadow Palette- Bossy :-

NYX has 4 shades available in the Full Throttle Shadow Palette, but Bossy is my favorite. It contains four pigment-packed shadows in the tones of pink and purple. These palettes are small and compact therefore very easy to travel with. They are super pigmented and you can create multiple looks with it.

I like to create a purple cut crease with a pink gradation on my lids.  It  looks great and is definitely eye catchy. The safe bet is that we can never doubt the quality and packaging of NYX products.

IMG_2278 - CopyIMG_2279.JPGIMG_2282.JPG

2. PAC Cosmetics Eyelashes :-

PAC Cosmetics is one drugstore brand that has managed to impress me the most. There prices, quality and packaging are great. They are also easily accessible. I have loved their brushes,  makeup blending sponges and mascaras. Lashes are the most recent of my purchases from PAC and well, they are damn good.

Priced at just Rs 165 they are the most affordable lashes ever. They have a huge range of falseies to choose from. With these lashes you are set for any possible makeup look.

IMG_2284IMG_2286.JPG

3. Smytten:-

Smytten is a website where in you can buy and try beauty and makeup products from the best premium brands in India. I have been using the smytten app since a long time. Over the period of time they have sent me many samples and I have shopped a great deal of stuff from them.

The reason smytten is making it in my favorites this month is because of gorgeous offers they had during their Easter sale. The offers were great and I ended up saving a ton of  money. Another great thing is that after every shopping I get many samples 🙂 As they say it I am smytten by this application.

smytten.jpg PSX_20170421_131009

4. Colourpop Ultra Matte Lipstick in the shade Embellish:-

I am all about dark vampy shades of lipstick these days and we can all trust the quality of colourpop lipsticks. The shade EMBELLISH is a beautiful dark brown shade. It looks great when paired with neutral eyes.

I love the colour brown and lipsticks, so its just hard to resist when you combine the two I have a few lip swatches on my instagram.  Click here to take a look.

IMG_2293.JPGIMG_2295.JPGIMG_2296.JPG

5. Batiste Dry Shampoo:-

Summers are accompanied by a lot of sweating. With the routines we follow its practically impossible to wash our hair daily. Also the scorching sun results in the release of loads of natural oil and sweat.

The travel size Batiste Dry shampoo bottles have been my savior. I keep one in my purse and whenever I feel a lot of oil in my hair, I just spray  it on. The dry shampoo works extremely well and the best product invented for a lazy chic like me 😛

IMG_2142.JPG

6. Spawake Moisture Fresh BB Cream:-

Spawake is a brand that offers a range of skin care products which are developed from natural sea weeds. I recently tried their Spawake Moisture Fresh BB Cream Natural Glow. It is made from a sea mineral moisture formula with a delightfully lightweight texture. It spreads smoothly over skin. BB Cream contains SPF 25/PA++ that corrects your skin tone.

IMG_2292.JPG

I hope you will give these products a try. I am telling you, they are worth your time, effort and money.

Do let me know if you have tried and of them.

MARCH FAVOURITES 2017!!

HOLA,

With the temperatures rising suddenly, march turned out to be the most uncomfortable month ever. But there are a few good things that came out of the month of march. Skin care and makeup excites me and I love sharing my passion with you guys.

Here are a few of the products that I really enjoyed this month. I hope you will try these too and share your thoughts with me.

  1. LANCOME Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate:-

As soon as we girls hit our mid twenties, the anti aging battle begins. When it comes to high end brands, LANCOME has always been my favourite. I trust their products and have never been afraid to try them. Advanced Genifique boosts signs of youthfulness and helps skin’s recovery during the day and night.

the serum is suitable for all skin types for women of multiple ethnicities and ages. I have been using the concentrate for about an year now and have absolutely been loving it. It is expensive (Rs 5,982.39/- for 30 ml) but worth every penny.

To  read a complete review of this product click here.wp-1464847174235.jpgwp-1464845025288.jpg2. Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Bold Metals Collection, Essentials Brush Kit, 3 Brushes set:-

Everyone is aware that Real Techniques makes the best affordable makeup tools. Their Bold Metals collection is amazing. The synthetic bristles are super soft and compactly packed, they look great and do an amazing job.

The bold collection is quite expensive as compared to the other makeup brushes by Real Techniques Sam and Nic collection but trust me, they are worth stretching your wallet a little bit more. They  look beautiful  and do a great job of making you look beautiful 🙂IMG_2235.JPGIMG_2236.JPG

3. Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss- shade 30:-

For their price these lipsticks really surprised me. The KateXRimmel collection is just what we all love. Its affordable, the packaging is chic and the quality is amazing.

I love berry shades so it will not come as a surprise when I  say my favourite LAsting Finish lipstick By Kate is the shade 30. Its a deep berry shade with glossy finish. The lipstick lasts for a good 7-8  hours without you having to touch up and is prices at just Rs275.

They are also easily available in India on Nykaa.IMG_2210IMG_2213.JPGIMG_2216.JPGIMG_2211.JPG

4. Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation:-

This is my  favourite foundation ever. I  have used many high end foundations but The Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation is just what I always go back to. If you have this, you do not have to spend all that extra cash for flawless coverage.

Priced at just around Rs 700 for 30 ml of product, this is a medium coverage foundation is just the best. It comes with SPF 20 for sun protection. If you wear makeup daily I would seriously urge you to try this affordable but amazing product.IMG_2221.JPGIMG_2222.JPG

5. Aryanveda Anti Wrinkle Gel Treatment Pen:-

I bought this product from the Nykaa Christmas sale and have been using it since then. I must say that Aryanveda is one skincare brand that I have really grown fond of. I have tried 6 different products from Aryanveda and have loved each and everyone of them.

With the stressful life and unhealthy diet it is quite easy to for your skin to age faster than you. On one of my skin care examinations my Skin care specialist pointed out the wrinkles being formed around my eyes. Well that wasn’t easy to see and was sad to notice how badly I had been ignoring my skin.

After using the Anti Wrinkle Gel  by Aryanveda for 4 months, I can confidently say that it does work. It has tightened the skin around my eyes and mouth and buying it is also not am hassle.

It is  priced at Rs 250 on Nykaa.068IMG_2206.JPG

6. Maybelline COLORsensational Lip Liner:-

The Maybelline COLORsensational Lip Liner was an impulse buy as I was just looking for a nude lip liner. This lip liner helps keep your lipstick in place and prevents it from smudging. It contains a bit of glitter and i don’t usually like glitter on my lips but the shade 150 STELLAR PINK looks quite stunning with a bit of glitter.

The shade is nude so it looks can easily be covered up with any other lip color.

7. TONI & GUY heat protection mist:-

I hate boring and the thing that is capable of getting boring the fastest is you hair. I try a lot of new hairstyles and most of them require me using hair styling tools. Constant exposure to heat can take a heavy toll on the quality of your hair, so heat protection is a must.

Toni & Guy launched their hair products after their success in the salon business. Their heat protection mist is my most used product followed by their textured sea salt spray. The 150 ml spray bottle comes with very attractive packaging. The locking mechanism is super cool and helps the liquid from spilling out.
