PACKAGING:The packaging is simple with a cream-colored squeezy tube having a green colored flap.The packaging is nothing fancy.It is sturdy and easy to use.The mouth of the tube does gets messy but it can be cleaned easily.Information about the product is provided at the back.
MY VIEWS:I have used this mask thrice and I am loving it so far.The mask provides a cooling sensation on application which is amazing in this super hot weather.It is a Kaolin and Xanthan Gum based mask.The mask itself is quite emollient and spreads easily.It inst dry but very creamy.I love how my face feels after using this.It provides a very refreshing feeling.
This mask has neem in it and I can be slight burning sensation after I fully apply this.That burning sensation is basically ts or near the zits or redness on my face.I feel that the mask comes into action in clearing away all that.The mask has mild neem fragrance which I love.The mask is quite hyrdrating.I can notice my dullness going away as my face feels fresh but the glow part is still missing.
RECOMMENDATION:This is a great mask for all skin types as it is soothing and very refreshing.The mask is hydrating as well.I highly recommend trying this out as it isn’t very expensive and great for summers.
PRICE:Moisturising high-definition lipstick with Fresh Wear Complex lasts up to 8 hours. Feels luxurious with a silky satin finish. SPF15.
PACKAGING: The packaging has really improved from the older one.Now,the lipstick comes in a red colored outer body with extra lasting signed at one end which provides an elegant feel to the lipstick.The shade name and code number is provided at the bottom.
SHADE: Ravishing Rose is a very pretty medium pink with mauve-berry undertones.The shade is really pretty that brightens up my face and it is a great shade for Indian complexion.
MY VIEWS: The texture of the lipstick is really smooth.It glides on easily and is very creamy.The lipstick has a creme finish that adds glossiness to the lips.I love the mild fruity fragrance that it has.It isn’t overpowering and lingers on for about 5-10 minutes.Ravishing Rose is a great shade for those having pigmented lips as it is opaque and provides good coverage.
The lipstick provides glossy finish on application which soon settles to semi-matte after 10-15 minutes of application.The staying power is around 5-6 hours.It doesnt wear off completely and I can see some stain on my lips though.It feels comfortable and very light weight.The lipstick has a nice formula that doesn’t settle in the lip lines or accentuate dry flaky skin.
RECOMMENDATION: I am really loving this new version .The shade is pretty,the formula and overall performance is really amazing.I highly suggest checking out this shade as it is a nice option to brighten up the skin tone .The shade is really a good choice for indian skin tone.The only problem is the limited availability of Avon products.
ABOUT:Get velvety color that lasts long, stays fresh and keeps lips soft and moisturized• Gentle, long-lasting lipstick with anti-oxidants and SPF 12 UVA/UVB• Transfer resistant.
PRICE:rs.229 for 2gms.
PACKAGING:The packaging is a nothing fancy and not the one I would fall for.For me,presentation is equally important as much as the performance of the product.The pink colored plastic outer cover is cheap looking but in 200 bucks,what else can you expect.It is sturdy and travel friendly.
SHADE:The shade ‘eternal caramel’ is champagne beige nude shade with shimmer in it.The shade has a slight frost finish that adds shine to the color.
MY VIEWS:The lipstick has a soft and smooth texture that is easy to apply.It glides on easily and spreads evenly on lips.The formula is greta.It doesnt have any weird fragrance which is great.
The shade itself is quite light but provides enough amount of pigmentation.It is light in a single swipe but buildable to medium coverage with 2-3 swipes.However,since this is not a dark shade,it will not cover lip pigmentation.But the shade does not dull my complexion or make my face look ashy.It is a nice everyday wear shade that stays for about 2-3 hours.It has minute shimmer that is non-gritty but visible on lips.
RECOMMENDATION: The lipstick has a nice texture with decent color payoff and formula.It is very pocket friendly and available in a number of shades.I would recommend this to all those who are new to applying lipstick
- Strong intense color when applied.
- Glides on easily without tugging or pulling.
- Long wearing, smudge proof.
PRICE:rs.119 for 2.6 gms
PACKAGING:The kajal has a frosted pink outer packaging.It has to be sharpened but the tip of the kajal is quite chubby unlike normal size ones.It is sturdy and travel friendly.You have to be careful while putting the cap as many times it gets on the kajal tip and it gets messy.
MY VIEWS:The kajal has a very smooth formula.It glides on easily on lids and doesn’t sting or irritate my waterline and I feel it is safe for those who have sensitive eyes or wear lenses.
It is definitely black but not the blackest one or intense and it has the habit of fading away within minutes of application.It doesn’t become streaky or make my undereye area black but it just vanishes which is a major con.
I have used this as an eyeshadow base but it made the eyeshadow crease as the formula of the kajal is creamy and makes the eyelids oily.However,I tried using it as a base for eyeshadow over a good layer of primer and concealer and the kajal did not crease.
RECOMMENDATION:For me,this kajal is a complete dud as it is neither black nor intense nor the staying power is good.
PRODUCT CLAIMS:Enhances the wear of any lipstick. Smooth, glide-on color. Long wearing. Retractable, self-sharpening.
PRICE:Rs. 229/0.25 g
PACKAGING:The packaging is simple with a black retractable pencil.The shade name and a small shade indicator is provided at the side.
SHADE:Mystery Mauve is a deep brown undertoned mauve shade.It comes out a bit darker on lips as compared to the swatch.
MY VIEWS:The lip liner are decently pigmented.It provides a matte finish.I wont call them smooth but they aren’t very drying.I feel that the lip liner is a bit harsh on lips which might be due to the fact that I don’t use it much and might have started drying up but your lips need to be properly exfoliated.
The liner is comfortable on lips but appears to be a bit drying.It doesnt transfer to other objects.
I usually use it as a base and it works well.Sometimes,it can be used as proper lipcolor with a clear gloss over it.
As a lip liner,it is fine as it helps in providing definition to lips.
Staying power is around 4-5 hours when used as a base for lip shades.You can easily see through the lip swatch how it accentuates the dry flaky lips.The shade does brighten up my face though!
RECOMMENDATION: I generally stay away from such deep dark shades but it is a nice addition.Also,it is a lip liner so I can use it under a nude shade to just add a bit of colour to lips.
ABOUT:Reveal the perfect pout with a full sweep of shimmery high-shine color. Infused with Vitamin E and Shea Butter for rich, creamy lip color and liner in one. Designed for every skin tone. Shimmery high-shine finish. Retractable, self-sharpening tip, twist up for lip color.
PACKAGING:The packaging is like other chubby sticks having a black outer body with the same shade at the bottom as the lip crayon.The shade name is provided at the bottom.The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.
SHADE:The shade-showstopper pink is bright blue base pink with purple and pink shimmer in it.
MY VIEWS:The crayon is easy to apply and glides on smoothly.The shimmer present can be felt a little bit on lips but it isn’t gritty or abrasive on lips.The formula is hydrating and moisturising.It is not overly buttery that it melts or bleeds on over application.Also,the crayon doesn’t break or melt in the packaging as well which is great plus point.It doesn’t accentuate lip lines but it can settle it the lip lines.The shimmer present stays on the lips when the color goes off which I don’t like.The crayon provides glossy finish.
The shade provides a good amount of coverage and is great for those having pigmented lips.It does brighten out my complexion as well.The staying power is great too.The shade stays for good 4-5 hours leaving behind a slight tint on lips.It is light weight and very comfortable on lips.The lip crayon has mild fragrance which isn’t overpowering.
RECOMMENDATION: Show stopper pink is a bright shade of pink that will brighten up the complexion.It has a nice formula and finish however,the shimmer present int h crayon is a put off for me.Alos,these days I am more into matte finish.
I got this duo as a gift from a very dear friend of mine.I love applying eyeshadow and antique gold is One shade I love to bits.This duo has a powder eyeshadow pigment at one end and golden-colored liner at the other end.
PRICE:rs.149 or so for 0.5gm.
PACKAGING:The packaging is very sweet with powder eyeshadow compartment at one side and colored pencil at the other end.It us very easy to use and travel friendly.The pencil is sharpenable.It is a very small pencil and will finish up quite soon.
SHADE:The powder eyeshadow pigment is antique gold in color which is very subtle yet very classy.The pencil is yellow golden in color.
L: pigment; Right: pencil
MY VIEWS:The texture of the eyeshadow pigment is soft and non-gritty.It is finely milled.The pigment adheres to the eyes really well and has minimal fallout.The shade is decently pigmented and 2 swipes provide a good amount of colour to lids.I love the shade as it gives a polished look to the face.The shade is great and very versatile.
It can be used alone as well as with other shades.It blends well.Also,the shade will compliment Indian ethnic wear very well.The pencil that comes along has smooth formula.It applies with ease without any tugging or oulling.However,the shade is sheer to be used on waterline.I basically use it on the lower lash line or in the inner corners of the eyes as it is a golden shade,it lights up the eyes.
The powder pigment stays for about 4-5 hours without any creasing.It will stay more when used over a primer or over an eyeshadow base.The pencil has low staying power for about 2-3 hours.
RECOMMENDATION:I like the combo and it is very reasonably price.The shade is great and can be used for creating many looks.The formula,pigmentation,quality is also great.The only con is the availability of Avon products.
