SHADE: Pink Charge is a very pretty barbie pink shade.It is like a mix of pink with pastel peach in the bullet. However,on lips it comes out to be a bit more deep.The shade has silver shimmer in it which is very minute.

MY VIEWS: The lipstick has soft and smooth texture.It i buttery soft and glides on easily on the lips.However,I notice that it can become a bit patchy and you need to dab it with your fingers to even out the lipstick on lips.The shade has minute silver shimmer that are barely visible.It is non-gritty and doesn’t settle in the lip lines.The lipstick looks glossy on application but settles to a semi-matte finish after a while.As far as the crease less claims are concerned,it does blur the appearance of fine lines to certain extent but its not too much.

The lipstick has a light weight,comfortable formula.It is decently pigmented but the shade itself is light so you need 2-3 swipes to get decent amount of shade. It stays for about 2-3 hours which is quite average.

RATING: 3.75/5

RECOMMENDATION:Its not a highly recommended shade but I really like the mild tone it has.A great everyday wear shade and a nice option for college girls.

SHADE:Fuschia Field is a deep hot pink shade with minute shimmer particles in ut.The shade is great for summers as it is bright and very fun!!It has shimmer in it.

IMG_20150317_092952

IMG_20150317_093033

MY VIEWS: The lipstick has soft and smooth texture.It glides on easily and settles to a semi-matte finish.The shimmer present is soft and non-gritty.However,it does settle in the lip lines.As far as the ‘creaseless’ claims are concerned,I completely detest this as the lipstick creases terribly on my lips and accentuates the lip lines;It stays for 5-6 hours though.It leaves a deep pink colored tint behind which goes away through a makeup remover only.

IMG_20150324_084151

IMG_20150317_093401_1426565088369

The shade is insanely pigmented and one swipe is all that is needed for covering pigmented lips.However,I go for another swipe as well to even out the lipcolor.The shade is great for summers and brightens up my face.

RATING: 2.75/5

RECOMMENDATION:The shade is nice but it is very common.I got this shade and the lip color for its ‘creaseless’ claims but it failed to perform in that area.

IMG_5841

IMG_5835

SHADE:Cherry is a soft red shade.Though,it is a balm but the shade is nicely pigmented.

IMG_5846

IMG_5845

MY VIEWS:The Lakme Lip Love Lip Care lip balm is soft and smooth. There is no waxy, sticky or oily feel on the lips which makes them comfortable on application. The lip balm comes with SPF 15, which provides decent protection for lips especially in winters.The formula is very hydrating and moisturising.It is great for those having chapped lips.

IMG_5836

Cherry is decently pigmented shade being a lip balm.It does leave a mild reddish tint on lips.Though,it won’t be able to cover lip pigmentation.It stays for about 3-4 hours which is quite decent.I loved to carry this along with me during winters but it’s not possible to carry this in summers as it has a tendency to melt due to its soft and creamy formula.

RATING:3.5/5

RECOMMENDATION:The formula,texture and the shade but the melting problem makes it not so travel-friendly!!

Lakme Insta Liner- MY absolute fav till date!! Review,Swatches & Looks

I simply love liquid liners and I am always in search of a jet black liner.But even after stocking so many brands,this is one liner I use all the time(mostly!!).

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

I was at Claire’s and saw the staff girl wearing a gorgeous matte black liner.I couldn’t resist myself and out of curiosity went to her and asked what she was wearing on her lids and can you guess her answer??? Yes,I was this Lakme insta liner only.This isn’t the first time that I asked a girl and she replied with this answer.I t has been quite often that I keep on asking others whatever I like and when it comes to liners,I usually get a reply for this or Lakme iconic!!

???????????????????????????????

ABOUT:This lightweight, deep intense, water-resistant black outliner gives you comfortable eye make-up all day long.

 

PRICE:Rs.100

PACKAGING:Dont go on the packaging.I know it is very flimsy and at first glance even I didn’t want to buy it but the product is amazing.It has a glass bottle with a plastic cap having the applicator.The tip if the applicator isn’t very thin r thick and good for precise application.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

SHADE:The shade is Jet black.The blackest liner I have used till date and the finish is classy matte.

???????????????????????????????

MY VIEWS: This is a liquid liner but the consistency is just right.It is neither too thick nor too runny and dries quickly.I like the ease of use as the applicator helps in sturdy application and I can easily draw a thick liner,a flick or a winged liner as per need.It doesn’t feel heavy on lids,neither does it flake.The liner is water resistant but not waterproof.I can wear it all day long.

This liner stays for about 5-6 hours and doesn’t budge.It comes off easily with a mild cleanser and is a great buy for beginners as they can practice with this liner since it is easily available at dirt cheap rate.The formula provides matte finish which I like.

I have used it in the following looks:

RATING: 4.5/5

RECOMMENDATION: I highly recommend this liner.I am sure every girl must have used this liner at one point of time.No matte how many liners I buy-high end or drugstore but when I need an intense effect,I rely on this!!

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

MY VIEWS:The texture of the lipstick is soft and smooth.It is creamy but not overly that it bleeds.The shade settles to a semi-matte finish which is comfortable to wear and doesn’t dry out my lips.It is light weight.The lipstick is creamy but when it gets semi-matte,it can accentuate dry lips and lip lines so proper exfoliation is necessary.

RATING: 4.5/5
