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

Eat Any Time Snack Bars

Hey guys,

Howz it going? On several occasion I have suffered the embarrassment of a loud growling stomach in public. I am that kind of person who starts feeling hungry just after one hour of a huge meal. So, Eat Any Time just sent over some of their snack bars. Here is my review…

About Eat Any Time:-

The main idea behind the snack bars was to create something healthy as well as delicious to satisfy the hunger pangs in between meals. They realized that our snacking choices were very unhealthy (mostly deep-fried stuff) and they wanted to create some healthy –wholesome choices.

Their Story- (from their website)

“E.A.T. Bars Are Made From 100% Natural Ingredients. Each Bar Is Carefully Prepared Using Ingredients Which Offer A Blend Of Scrumptious Taste And Wholesome Nutrition.

They say experience is the best teacher and that is how we started with E.A.T.
Life, as we know it, is not easy but at the same time it is busy. Out in the big world trying to make our mark, fulfill our dreams we work hard and struggle every day. Me and my friend were two such people toiling day and night, often forgetting to eat on time, skipping our meals and bingeing on the junk. Before we realised we were sustaining ourselves on the junk food easily found at the stretch of the hand in every nook and corner of Mumbai.

Soon we began to feel the ill-effects of all the junk we lived on. We were fatigued, irksome, sluggish and unable to focus on things important to us. That is when my wife, who is nutritionist took matters in her hands. She made these wonderful nutrition bars from oats and other natural ingredients and wonder seeds. I started carrying it around with me, they were delightful and yummy and most importantly full of flavor they became our (me and my friend) savior and most importantly kept us healthy and wise.
We received a gift of health in that little power packed bar. A treasure we decided to share it with all. Thus evolved Eat Any Time (E.A.T.) BARS, so that health was available for all, at all times to simply by E.A.Ting!”

The Bars I received:-

img_6026.jpgIMG_6028.JPGIMG_6033.JPG

I received a box of 4 snack bars, of different flavors. The packaging was nice and attractive. The bars had their ingredients and nutrition chart printed on them. Each bar is for Rs 50/-

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER:-

BAMBAIYA CHAAT:-

MANGO GINGER:-

IMG_6047.JPGimg_6050.jpgimg_6048.jpgIMG_6050.JPG

TANGY ORANGE:-

IMG_6052.JPGIMG_6053IMG_6055

My Opinion:-

E.A.T bars provide a healthy alternative to our wrong and unhealthy eating habits.

These bars are easy to carry in bag. TANGY ORANGE is my favourite flavour 🙂 Bambaiya chaat was mu not so favourite. I loved snacking on these bars while reading a book a sipping tea. They are also perfect to carry around in your purse. They are easily available on Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal and other shopping websites.

So, hope I was able to help you find a good snack. Follow me on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM. Write to me at barkha.vyas06@gmail.com

Smells good!! – Review of my favourite Body Mists

Hi Ya’ll,

What does summer remind you of? If your answer is loads of sweat and foul body odor, you are at the right place.
I feel refreshing when I use body mist, especially in this summer heat. It helps mask our sweaty humanly scent and also leaves us feeling cool. Over the past few months I have tried many body mists.
So I decided to write a blog about these body mists and sharing details of which ones I like the best and why.

IMG_5964.JPGPSX_20170718_233417.jpgIMG_5963.JPG

1. Moringa body mist by The Body Shop –

This was the first body mist that I ever bought. The subtle, delicate fresh floral smell of the body mist is refreshing, especially when used early morning after shower. I love that it does not have a sweet smell or an alcoholic scent to it. The fragrance lasts for 1-2 hours, there is a light hint of smell for longer period of time.
Recommended for those who like subtle smell based body mist.
Now that we have covered the smell of the body mist, here are some details about packaging – It comes in a transparent glass bottle so try not to drop it :). The nozzle for spraying is of very good quality and works properly.

100 ml bottle is priced for 795 Rs
Rating 4.5 on 5img_5985.jpgIMG_5986.JPG

2. Beautiful day body mist by Natural Bath & Body –

It has a sweet floral smell with a cooling sensation. I do wish that the smell would last longer (at best the smell lasts for an hour).
Packaging– It comes in plastic bottle. I had received a sample size product in my fab bag. The nozzle for spraying came off within a few days.

200 ml for 325 Rs
Rating 2.5 on 5img_6000.jpgimg_6001.jpg

3. Oriental body mist by Streax –

I wanted to compare economical body mist to the other options in the market. So I bought this one as it had really good reviews from customers on Amazon.
As name suggests, it has oriental smell (unique blend of warmth and sensuality). I find the smell pleasant. I could smell hints of musk, vanilla and jasmine in the body mist, because of which I use it as a deodorant.
Those who like oriental smell should give it a try.
The smell lasts for 2-3 hrs.
Packaging- The body mist comes in purple plastic bottle that you can carry in your purse. The nozzle for spraying is of good quality.

100 ml for 188 Rs
Rating 3 on 5IMG_6010.JPGIMG_6014.JPG

4. Nargis body mist by Forest Essentials –

This is my favourite one. Cooling sensation when you apply the body mist is amazing. The body mist has a powering sweet and fresh smell of Nargis. This feminine body mist is recommended for ladies who love refreshing strong floral scent and the smell is long-lasting. The only thing bad about this product is that it is expensive.
Packaging -The bottle comes in a transparent plastic bottle that you can carry in your purse. The nozzle for spraying is of very good quality.

100 ml for 1895 Rs
Rating 5 on 5IMG_5990.JPGIMG_5994.JPG

5. Forever 16 body mist by NewU –

The body mist captures a 16-year-old girl’s spirit (pun intended!).
It has a sweet fruity smell. It is perfect for teenage girls or for those who are young at heart. The only problem is the sticky sensation left behind when you apply the mist.
The smell is long-lasting.
Packaging- It comes transparent plastic bottle and the nozzle for spraying is sturdy and is great value for money.

250 ml for 399 Rs
Rating 3 on 5img_5979.jpgIMG_5984.JPGIMG_5983.JPG

6. Luscious Bloom body mist by NewU –

The body mist is perfect for day-to-day use with its combination of musky and floral fragrance.
I like the fact that the smell is not overpowering. Again the initial sticky sensation when applying the body mist may be unpleasant to some (the sensation fades away).
The smell is long-lasting.
Packaging- It comes transparent plastic bottle and the nozzle for spraying is sturdy and is great value for money.

250 ml for 399 Rs
Rating 4 on 5img_5977.jpgIMG_5971.JPG

Greenberry Organics Mudash 3 in 1- Mask, Scrub and Cleanser- Review

Hey Guys,

Today I am talking about  a product that has great multitasking capabilities. It’s the monsoon season and we need products like this for our skin care. Those rain drops do make our heart happy but our skin is a sensitive topic. The Mudash 3 in 1 by Greenberry organics is a mask, scrub and cleanser all in 1. BeautyPlus_20170702102637_save.jpg

About Greenberry Organics (from their website):-

The Man Soap Co. is an initiative by an XLRI graduate and a certified cosmetologist in bringing the best from around the globe to the Indian consumers. Greenberry Organics – The Man Soap Co. creates a unique combination of ancient Ayurveda-inspired remedies with modern scientific techniques to create products which are free from harmful fillers (Chemicals) available at dirt cheap prices in the market.
 We constantly strive to excel with each LOT of our products which are tested on human volunteers and never on Animals. Each of our LOTS is deliberately made in smaller batch sizes to ensure that the customers get the freshest the fastest. Enjoy the nature’s best remedies only made better with science.
At Greenberry organics we are striving hard to make a difference among standard and conventional production methods filled with irregularities, animal abuse and unfair remuneration.

About Mudash 3 in 1:-

IMG_5898.JPG

It’s a mask, scrub and cleanser in one. It contains 100% natural ingredients. If your skin is tired and dull this is your product. It is a real  jar of happiness. Also being paraben and sulphate free it is very skin friendly.

Well, now is that savoury moment. Do you also use the words “problem” and “skin” in the same sentence and that too with a negative tone! It’s time we change that with our 3 in 1 formula that has cleanser, scrubber and mask packed in one. The biggest WOW factor use it daily as a cleanser, twice as a scrubber or right before those happening weekends as a mask and your skin will thank you every minute for this super pampering care. Product is free from Silicons, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, DEA, TEA, Phthalates, Phosphates, Artificial fillers.

Price and Quantity :-

Rs 595 for 100 Gms

Ingredients:-

Aqua Kaolin, China Clay, Zinc Oxide, Bentonite Powder, Turmeric Powder, Isopropyl Myristate, Kaolin Clay , Glycerine , Aqua , Aloe Vera Extracts , Activated Charcoal, Phenoxy Ethanol , Xanthan Gum, Tea Tree Extracts, Jojoba oil, Clove oil, Vitamin C, Fragrance, Vitamin E.IMG_5877.JPGimg_5888.jpg

How To Apply:-

Use the product on a slightly damp face as a mask, apply all over the face liberally (Avoid direct contact with eyes, mouth and nostrils). Let the product stay for 10-15 minutes. Once the product dries out, slightly damp the face with Greenberry Organics Miracle Face Mist or with normal cold water. Wash  the product off the face gently and slowly. Feel the difference.IMG_5885.JPGIMG_5882.JPGIMG_5889.JPG

My experience with Greenberry Organics Mud Ash 3 in 1 Face care :-

It comes in a good quality see through plastic jar. It has double lid protection, a black cap followed with a transparent cover.

The colour of the product is grey and the texture is thick and granular. It’s smell is very pleasant, that of tea tree extracts.

The monsoon season can clog your pores and do a lot of harm to that gorgeous skin. This product is a mask, cleanser and scrub in one. The tree tea extracts are excellent anti bacterial agents and the activated charcoal helps detoxify your skin. Clay also helps your skin from sagging ( and no one wants their skin to drop down with the rain drops). The granules are just of the right size to act as scrub. It helps remove all the dead and flaky skin.

Over  using the product (More than twice a week) or using a lot of quantity can cause your skin to dry out. The product has me in love with it mainly coz it worked just fine without causing any breakouts. 🙂

PROS:-

  • Nice packaging
  • Works great as a scrub, cleanser and mask
  • Cruelty free
  • Sls and paraben free
  • Made from natural ingredients
  • Removes all dead skin
  • detoxifies the skin
  • Priced well for the quantity
  • Makes the soft and supple
  • smells great

CONS:-

  • Using a lot of quantity and using it for more than 3 minutes can dry out your skin

In conclusion I love this product and am very glad to share it with my family.

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.

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.
