Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (new 36 hr formula) : Review, Swatch, Photos

ABOUT: Only our oil-free formula can hold highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base so color is more intense and lines resist wear for hours.  Smudge-proof and waterproof, the most intense line for lasting drama.

PACKAGING:Simple & light weight plastic container & a screw lid.It is convenient to store and is travel friendly.The packaging is slightly different – its in a square base clear pot instead of the round glass one. The metallic lid has been replaced by a sleek black plastic one.

MY VIEWS:The newer version is more pigmented and jet black.It is smoother and glides on easily.It is easy to apply and the brush that comes along definitely helps in applying a smooth line.It dries quickly and I don’t need to layer it much.I have worn this for about 14hr and it looked fresh at that time too.I have used it on my waterline and it did not irritate my eyes.

Lip Swatch

Lip Swatch

MY VIEWS:  L’oreal nutri shine range lipsticks provide sheer coverage but they are very moisturizing and hydrating.However,this is the most pigmented shade from the range along with Vivid Rose. The finish is glossy and gives wet look to lips.The texture is amazingly soft and the lip color glides on easily. It feels luxurious on lips.The staying power is around 4 hours for this shade.However,it is prone to melting and over application can lead to lipstick bleeding!!

I find this formula great for those having dry lips. It certainly is Juicy!!!!

PROS:

  • Sleek and classy packing.
  • The shade is stunning
  • Soft and smooth .
  • Decently pigmented to cover mild lip pigmentation.
  • Hydrating formula.
  • Available in variety of shades.
  • Provides glossy finish to lips.

CONS:

  • Average staying power.
  • Expensive.
  • Might break in hot climate.
  • Sheer shade.

RATING: 3.5/5

RECOMMENDATION: I have 6 shades from this range and love them all as it like hydrating lipsticks.The formula is creamy and shades are great.I t could be the best if staying power would have been a bit more.

NYX Cream Blush Glow review & swatches

I love cream blushes as they provide a gorgeous dewy glow and have great array of yummy shades but at the same time I find them hard to apply and blend as they take time.However,these NYX cream blushes are hard to resist and this particular shade is most raved one!!!

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

ABOUT: More delicious than peaches and cream? We like to think so. Our velvety smooth mineral Rouge Cream Blush offers a sheer wash of radiant color. The glorious payoff is dewy, sultry and long-lasting.

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

PRICE: 6$ OR around rs.650 in India.

PACKAGING: The packaging is simple and sturdy with a black round pan packaging having a transparent lid .The shade name is provided at the back.

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

THE SHADE: Glow is a gorgeous bright pink shade.It has warmer tones which makes it suitable for Indian skin tones.It looks very bright in the pan and on swatching but once blended out,it looks very subtle and gives a healthy glow to face!!

MY VIEWS: The texture is very creamy and the blush is highly pigmented.I just put 3 dots below the cheekbone and then blend.It blends easily without leaving any patches or streaks.The finish is dewy and it staying for about 7-8 hours on me.However,after a few hours I feel some oiliness and need a dust of compact to freshen up the look.
