s1259894-main-hero-300

COLOR: The sunscreen is a thick white colored cream.

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

MY VIEWS: The first thing you notice when you use this sunscreen is the pleasant fragrance.It isnt over powering but very subtle and pleasasnt.I like it a lot.The sunscreen is cream based.It is quite rich and moisturising.I have combination-oily skin and this is somewhat heavy for my skin.

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

It takes a while to get absorbed into the skin.However,I feel that it doesn’t completely sink into my skin and I feel that my makeup flakes when I use it.It feels a bit greasy and  if I rub my skin even a  bit,the cream starts coming off which is biggest negative point.It has spf 15 but the ingredients are enough to keep skin away from tanning.The sunscreen is great when you want a single layer.I prefer using it on a no makeup day.

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

RATING: 2.25/5

RECOMMENDATION:The formula is definitely good for those having dry skin as it is very hydrating.It has low spf but it does prevents tanning.However,it flakes and reduces the staying power of the makeup so I will skip this and not recommend it to those having oily combination skin!

Sephora Colorful Eyeshadow in Nº 74 Walking In The Sand Review,Swatches

A while back,I bought this shade from Sephora collection.I wanted a shimmery nude shade and this one looked perfect.I really suggest everyone to try out these singles from Sephora.There are many shade available and they are definitely worth giving a try.

ABOUT:A range of shadows featuring highly pigmented, long-lasting colors with a glitter finish. 

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

What it does: 
Watch makeup go from everyday to extraordinary with this endless array of colors and finishes. These shadows provide superior color, coverage, and long-lasting wear (up to 10 hours) thanks to the Color Eye Last complex, which includes an exclusive combination of up to 70 percent pigments, pearls, and shimmer particles. The shadows are also exceptionally easy to apply with micronized pigments that make for an ultra smooth, blendable texture.

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

PRICE:$13 or rs.760 in India.

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

SHADE:It is described as a Golden Beige Glitter which is an apt description of the shade.

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

PACKAGING:The packaging is very simple with a round plastic black outer cover with a transparent lid to see through the shade.The shade name is provided at the back.

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

MY VIEWS:This is the first time I have tried anything from Sephora.I  found the texture of the eyeshadow to be smooth but a bit chalky.However,it applies easily and blends well.The shadow can cake if applied 2-3 times.The shadow has fallout which is minimal and only in the pan.The glitter is visible but its is non-gritty and very wearable.

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

The shade is really light but pigmented.I need one layer for a wash of shade to brighten up my eyes.It can be intensified further.I also tried the shade wet and it looks really pretty and very nice.It wears for about 6-7  hours which is decent.

RATING:4/5

RECOMMENDATION:I love the shade as I had been looking for a golden shimmery nude shade.This is decently pigmented and decently priced.Will be hauling some more shades soon.
