MY VIEWS:Powder Polish is part of the new launches by Zoeva in 2015 collection.It is a large, fluffy yet dense brush which is perfect for use with mineral or powder foundation as it allows you to really buff such product into the skin.

IMG_1286

I find that this powder brush is great in all zones,be it foundation, loose powder or even blush but it also works wonderfully well with liquid products due to the denseness of the brush. If you like a flawless finish from your foundation with very little work this is the brush for you.I have been using this for buffing liquid foundation and the results are flawless.It provides airbrushed look and is easy to work out also.

The bristles are dense and very soft.I just love the feel of the brush on my skin as it is not at all harsh or abrasive.I find it a great brush to be used for powder as well as liquid foundation.

RATING: 5/5

RECOMMENDATION: Highly recommend trying the Zoeva brushes.They are heaven!!

030

PRICE:Rs.1100 for 4.8 gms.

PACKAGING:The packaging is simply beautiful.It is very cute featuring animated Betty’s pic and hearts.A white  cap does-footed applicator adds to the gorgeousness.The applicator is helpful in even application of the lip glass.

031

THE SHADE: MAC Kiss & Don’t Tell Lip glass is described as ‘bright coral’.I would call this shade as a pinky coral shade that is sans any shimmer or sheen.

MY VIEWS: The lip glass has slightly sticky formula, but the sticky feeling doesn’t last long. It has soft creamy finish and looks really pretty on lips. The lip glass gives really great coverage and color payoff.

It wore well for about 4 hours and didn’t settle into the lines on my lips or feather at all.I find it slightly sticky when freshly applied but after 5 minutes.it gets fine.The lip glass provides medium to full coverage.It is a great shade to be worn for a brunch.

RATING:4/5

RECOMMENDATION: I highly recommend this shade as it will suit everyone and gives a bright look to the face.It is slightly costly than regular lip glass price but it is totally worth the splurge!!!

PRICE: rs.200

The lipsticks are matte and considered to be a cheap alternative for Limecrime Velvetines. Thai girls were crazy for these lipsticks.At first,I was confused to buy them but seeing the craze,I gave in the temptation and bought these.
PACKAGING:The lipsticks have a very cute packaging.It has a cylindrical shape and a black wand with a sponge applicator.They are number based.The lipsticks are easy to use and travel friendly.
023
024
SHADE: 37 is a very bright neon orange-red in tube but transforms into a gorgeous orange when applied on lips.The shade does has slight neon effect on lips as well.
060-crop
MY VIEWS:This lipstick has a very light weight formula.It is easy to apply but you have to be careful as it can get streaky easily.The formula is great and dries up quickly providing a matte finish.The shade is decently pigmented and One swipe provides medium coverage which can be built up further.However,over application leaves a patchy layer to I stick to 1 layer only.The staying power is around 5-6 hours without any eating or drinking,
083-crop
My major issue with this lipstick is the removal as I have to vigorously use an oil based removal to get away with this.The lipstick has a mild fragrance that is fine with me.

RATING: 2/5
RECOMMENDATION: These are a cheap alternative and I truly agree with this as these are cheap for sure!!Not happy with the formula though the shades are very pretty.

Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Loose Powder Illuma Flair Review

ABOUT:Ultra-fine loose powder in a translucent formula to suit every skin tone. Sets make-up, keeping complexion shine-free and flawless. Contains light-reflecting Illuma Flair™ complex for a natural and luminous result in any light.

037

PRICE:rs.649 for 7 gm

038-crop

PACKAGING:The packaging is simple but I like it as the transparent round body with a black cap makes the overall packaging look sleek.It has a swifter inside to control the amount of product that comes out.However,my tub got upside down and the entire powder has come up.

039

SHADE:The powder itself is white in color but once applied,it dusts off and has a translucent effect.It is a great product as it provides a matte finish without altering the shade of the foundation.

040

MY VIEWS:The texture of the powder is very smooth.It is finely milled and doesn’t feel abrasive on skin.It is easy to apply and blends easily into the skin giving a matte appearance to the face.However,it doesn’t make the face look flat but adds a soft glow to it.It doesn’t provide a white cast also.

043-crop

I am using this for over a month now and loving it as it quickly makes the face matte and I am ready to go. Also,the matte look stays for about 6 hours max which is quite impressive.However,this might not be your choice if you are looking for a powder that provides coverage.

RATING:4.5/5

RECOMMENDATION:I highly recommend checking this out.It is very soft and delicate in texture.The formula is great and it is worth the price tag.

Gerard Cosmetics *Nude* Lipstick Review,Swatches & Pics

Gerard Cosmetics is a fairly new brand that has gained quite a lot of fans very early.Thy have lipsticks,lip glosses,star powders(highlighters) and now they have added matte liquid lipsticks which are very much raved about!

ABOUT:Buttery, full coverage and a stunning neutral hue that can be mixed with any lip color to create the perfect lip color.

004

PRICE:19$.I got it for rs.1750 from La Makeup Affaire .

005

006

PACKAGING:The lipstick has a nice golden-colored outer bullet which makes it different from MAC and Indian brand lipstick packaging so it is easy to identify in vanity.The shade name is provided at the bottom of the packaging.

009

MY VIEWS:I have almost all the shade in lipstick but a neutral nude was missing so this was the best option available as I got to try the brand and the formulation of the most raved about lipsticks these days.

008

052-crop

Nude is a neutral brown shade with slight peach undertones which is really good as it prevents my face from looking flat or washed out.It is a great shade for Indian skin tone(nc30-40) as it has a pastel effect but it isn’t too much.I have become a fan of the formulation.The lipstick has a smooth and soft texture that is easy to apply .It is not dry but not moisturizing as well.The formula is comfortable and light weight on lips.The lipstick is quite smooth so you should keep them in a cooler place else they can melt.

048-crop

074-crop

Nude is decently pigmented but since it is a light shade,you need at least 2 full swipes.It covers my slightly pigmented lips very well.The lipstick has a semi-matte finish on application that soon turns into matte but the best part is that even thought this has a matte finish,they don’t accentuate dry flaky lips.I simply love this formula as it is great for those having dry lips.

073-crop

Girls who have dry lips and stay away from matte finish lipsticks can definitely try this.The staying power is also good for about 5 hours.I find that this shade is best suited when you wear a base or BB creams as it will provide an even look to the face.Also,the entire look turns from simple to sultry when this lip shade is complemented with smoky eyes.

RATING:4.9/5

RECOMMENDATION: I am in love with this shade and plan to haul a few more shades.I like the texture,the shade and the finish.Highly recommend checking this out!!

MY VIEWS:The lip definer has an amazing formula.It is like a matte lipstick in lip liner form.The texture is firm to apply but creamy enough that I dont have to drag the liner on my lips.It is easy to apply and provides a crisp shape to lips.Staying power is also amazing which is about 6-7 hours.

028-crop

029-crop

It wont call it moisturizing or very hydrating but it is comfortable on lips.It can accentuate dry lips so proper exfoliation is necessary.

It does fade a bit from the inside of the lips but that’s not an issue.Cocktail Peach is amazingly pigmented as well and brightens up my face to a large extent.However,it can accentuate the unevenness on skin so a light base is needed with this.

RATING:5/5

RECOMMENDATION:There is absolutely nothing that I dont like in this beauty.It is a must have shade.Price is reasonable and I love to use it for ombre lips effect.A highly recommended product.
