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

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture of the blush is smooth and non-gritty.It has golden sheen to it rather than golden shimmer that gives slight highlighting effect.I find it a  bit powdery on swatching but it blends beautifully on cheeks.It doesn’t clog pores neither accentuate them.

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

Live pink is a pretty light pink that can be worn to office as it is very subtly and imparts slight glow to cheeks, It is not overly pigmented and 2 swipes can give good amount of shade.I like my blushes to have light pigmentation (not poorly pigmented!!! 😀 )as I like layering them.The one that are highly pigmented have to be used carefully and can be easily overdone.

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

It stays for about 4-5 hours after which it starts fading.

PROS:

  • Smooth and soft texture.
  • doesn’t clog pores.
  • provides slight highlighting effect on cheeks.
  • can be worn to office as well.
  • reasonably priced.
  • decently pigmented.
  • decent staying power for the shade it is.
  • packaging is sweet.
  • blends beautifully.

 

CONS:

  • the staying power could be a bit more.
  • not easily available.
  • the texture is chalky on swatching.

RATING: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: I love the blush,the shade,the packaging and everything in this cute product.It is one of my most used blushes these days.I highly recommend this to everyone as it can be used with any look and will suit everyone.

Bourjois Paris 1 Seconde nail enamel-05 corail magique <3 <3

 

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

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.

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

I need 2 coats for proper shade!!!

SHADE:The shade 655 is a pretty mauve with pink undertones.It has golden shimmer and sheen(both) which provides a healthy look to lips.The lipstick is creamy but looks a bit frosty on lips.

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

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture is amazingly soft and smooth and glides on easily on lips.The lipstick appears to be having a frost finish but it might be due to presence of the shimmer otherwise it is comfortable and slightly creamy.

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

It keeps my lips supple and moisturised.Staying power is around 3-4 hours which might be low but the shade is subtle and not loud and bright.

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

It is pigmented enough to cover slight darker lips.However,i feel that this shade will suit fairer to medium skin tones more.

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

PROS:

  • Classy and travel friendly packaging.
  • the shade is very subtle.
  • it keeps my lips soft and moisturised.
  • the shimmer doesn’t settle in the lip lines neither it accentuates dry flaky lips.

  • a nice everyday wear shade.

 

CONS:

  • average staying power.
  • expensive
  • might not suit girls with darker skin tones.

PRICE:Rs.750 for 4 gm

SHADE:The shade flushed fuchsia has nothing fuchsia in it.It is a beautiful baby pink with golden micro-shimmer in it that are not visible on lips but impart a gorgeous golden sheen to the lips.It is the presence of golden sheen that this lip colour appears to be having a frost finish.

Image

TEXTURE, FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture of the lipstick is soft.It applies sheerly on lips which can be built up to medium coverage.This shade is meant for fair skinned girls as it will look ashy on darker skin tones.

The staying power is around 2 1/2 hours after which it leaves a slight golden sheen on lips.This golden sheen or shimmer has a tendency to settle in the lip lines and it can accentuate dry lips too so exfoliation of lips is mandatory.

Image

The finish is semi-frost but it is creamy.This is a very good everyday wear shade but it is a little tricky.It might or might not work for your skin tones so I would suggest trying it out at the counter first.

PROS:

~soft and smooth texture.

~the golden sheen present in it looks very gorgeous on lips.

~the packaging is classy and travel-friendly.

~nice,everyday wear shade.

Image

CONS:

~expensive.

~average staying power.

~the shimmer settles in the lip lines.

~not for very pigmented lips.

~this shade can wash out many skin tones.

Image

RATING:3/5

Image

RECOMMENDATION:The shade is gorgeous and it was a love at first sight but this shade is not meant for everybody.The frost finish is not liked by everybody so i would suggest trying it at the counter first.
