Corail Magique is beautiful pastel coral with golden shimmer and golden micro flakes. Shimmer and flakes give this nail polish beautiful shine which looks very pretty especially in the sun.

The shimmer and the golden flakes ad to the beauty of the nail paint and glow in sun!!!

The brush has a fanned tip which is very helpful for me and helps in applying the enamel quicky and evenly.

SHADE:According to me,this shade is a light coral pink.It does look bright when swatched but blends beautifully and gives a softer look on cheeks.I,personally didnt find and lilac tone in it!!

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

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

blended

blended

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

it does lean towards lilac tone in the pan but comes out to be a pink coral when swatched!!

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture is soft.The blush is finely milled and devoid of any chalkiness.I like the fact that it isnt insanely pigmented as in cases of some blush as i love applying blush atleast 2-3 times and there isnt any worry to go OTT.

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

This blush gives a coral soft focus to cheeks that i love.

The finish is matte as said.It doesnt clog pores nor accentuate them!!

Staying power is 6-7 hours which is quite decent!

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

PROS:

  • Soft and smooth texture.
  • great formula.
  • doesnt accentuate pores neither clog them.
  • blends easily and beautifully.
  • travel friendly.
  • ingredients mentioned.
  • matte finish which is wearable even to office.
  • the shade is decently pigmented.
  • decent staying power.
???????????????????????????????

applied a bit extra for the purpose of review! 🙂

CONS:

  • expensive.
  • can be ordered online only.
  • no brush provided.

RATING: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: I would have given it 5/5 bit 1 mark less for the fact that it isnt available in India and has to be ordered.I love everything about this and use it almost everyday.The formula is superb and so is the shade.

Highly recommended!!!

Note:  I got this blush from a Blog sale that was recently held at one of the popular Indian blogs and got it for Rs.1000!!! 🙂 🙂

 

 

MAYBELLINE 14HR SUPERSTAY LIPCOLOR-430(STAY WITH ME CORAL) REVIEW & SWATCHES

So,here is the review for my current love!!!

024

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Meet the 14HR lipstick that won’t weigh you down.
Super rich colour with super staying power.
No dragging. No drying. No letdowns at all.

PRICE:Rs.525 for 3.3 gm

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

PACKAGING:I am not really a fan of the packaging although it looks cute and girly but i prefer classy packaging as opposed to the white plastic-y cap and transparent body.The shade name and number are provided at the bottom of the lipstick.

SHADE:Aah,the shade..oh i love this shade. A semi-matte bright coral(vivid)pink.It is more pink than coral.No shimmer.

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

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture of the lipstick when applied, is creamy but becomes matte after sometime.It is not at all drying neither it is uncomfortable on lips but a lipbalm underneath will definitely help.The texture is slightly thick and the shade is insanely pigmented.

025

I sometimes,like to use it as a tint on lips which looks adorable.The formula is not bad but not top notch.It can cover up pigmented lips very well.Also,these lipsticks have the tendency to settle in the lip lines and accentuate dry flakey areas of lips.

Staying power is around 7-8 hours after which i could see some unevenness on lips.But i think,the amount of staying power isn’t bad at all although it claims to be 14hr.

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

These lip shades have sweet candy kind of fragrance that becomes a little overpowering at times.

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

PROS:

~pretty bright shade that brightens up my face.

~comfortable matte finish.

~Highly pigmented.

~Decent staying power.

~Great shades in the range that will suit Indian skin tones.

~Thick texture that stays put for a longer period.

~can be used lightly as a tint too.

CONS:

~i am not a fan of the packaging,it looks flimsy.

~The lipstick settles in the lip lines and accentuate dry flakey areas.

~Although the finish is comfortable matte for me but it can be drying for those having very dry lips.

~highly scented so not for those with sensitive nose.

~It becomes uneven when it starts to wear off.

~transfers to other objects.

RATINGS:3.5/5

RECOMMENDATION:These are not must have lipsticks but i really like the shade and those who like testing new shades or like wearing brighter colours can go for this lipstick.
