SHADE: Scarlet Siren is a stunning cherry red shade that looks good on all skin tone.It is a kind of red that can be worn  easily without the fear of look OTT.

20140126_125404-1

MY VIEWS: The lipstick has a matte formula but it isn’t drying.It is not moisturizing either.Scarlet Siren feels light weight on lips and stay for about 2-3 hours max.I leaves a mild cherry stain on lips that makes lips appear healthy.It glides on smoothly and evenly but has a bit waxy feel.

The shade is highly pigmented and great for those having pigmented lips.

RATING: 3.75/5

RECOMMENDATION: If you are comfortable wearing matte formula and a decent shade of red;I highly recommend this.The quality is great and the price is incomparable.

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

PACKAGING:The packaging is great with a lipstick at one end and lipgloss at the other.The lipstick’s end has a small pot having a similar shade lip balm although when swatched on hands, it is transparent!!

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

SHADE:Vibe is a gorgeous rosy brown with peach undertones.It is a great shade for daily wear.The lip gloss that comes along is basically transparent but has golden and silver glitter that are a bit too chunky for my liking.

MY VIEWS:The texture of the lipstick is soft and smooth.It is creamy and buttery.The formula is moisturising and feels very comfortable on lips.It doesnt settle in the lip lines neither accentuate dry lips.It stays for about 3-4 hours on my lips.I like the fragrance of the lipstick thought it is very plastic-y!!

The  lip gloss has caramel fragrance .The glitter in it is a bit too much for me as I can feel it on my lips.It adds a glossy look to the lips.However,the glitter remains on lips even after the lipstick fades so I generally skip applying the lip gloss.

RATING:3.5/5

RECOMMENDATION:I like the shade and formula of the lipstick but the lip gloss is a total no-no for me.

MUA blusher shade 04- review ,swatches, pics

ABOUT:Part of our amazing £1 line, our blushers come in six shades. They range from pink and coral to deeper plums and natural nudes so you’ll definitely find one that suits you the most! Although to be honest with you, at £1 there’s no reason why you shouldn’t own all six! Just simply sweep across the apples of the cheek and up to the brow bone to create a soft yet beautiful contour. Gorge!

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

PRICE:£1.00

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

PACKAGING:The packaging is simple with a rectangular black plastic body having transparent flap.It is not very attractive but not very cheap looking.The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.

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

SHADE:The shade is a warm peach with slight pink undertones.It is matte in finish.

swatch

swatch

MY VIEWS: The texture of the blush is soft.It is easy to use but not the smoothest as it feels a tad bit gritty but the price it comes at,I easily over look this.The shade is decently pigmented and blends easily.Since,it is a warm toned peach,it will suit all skin tones especially those having dusky skin.

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

The finish is matte and it never broke me out or clog pores.It stays for about 5-6 hours on my skin fading evenly.

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

RATING:3.5/5

RECOMMENDATION: I am an avid fan of MUA products and highly recommend this shade as it is a great matte peach blush with warm tones that will suit all skin tones.The only con for me is its non-availability in INDIA. It is not the smoothest but neither gritty in texture.

MUA Color Blast Eyeshadow Tint- Stay review & swatches

ABOUT:Get a long-lasting tint of colour with this smooth cream eyeshadow. The easy-glide formula can be blended or worn alone for cool, block colour eyes.
Encased in a handy chubby pencil the applicator rolls up for ease.

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

PRICE:£3.00

PACKAGING:The packaging is similar to chubby stick having a chubby pencil body that is retractable.The shade of the stick matches the eyeshadow tint shade.It is handy and easy to use.

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

SHADE: Stay is a pearly champagne shade with frost finish.A great shade for adding brightness to inner corners of the eye.Also,a very good everyday wear shade.

I have reviewed other shade from this range HERE .

swatch

swatch

MY VIEWS:I have mixed feelings for this eyeshadow tint.I like the shade,the packaging and the affordability but it is low in terms of pigmentation.I have to swipe it 3-4 times to get the desired shade.It is smooth and glides on easily.

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

The frost finish adds a lot of brightness to the eye but it has the problem of creasing after 3-4 hours.Though,over a primer,it survived for about 6-7 hours.It is easy to work with and blends easily with other cream eyeshadow.

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

RATING: 3.75/5

RECOMMENDATION: I like the shade,the packaging and the affordability.It is a very good shade that can be used for many looks and in the inner corners of the eye.However,the formula isn’t the best and creases very early.
