It isn’t highly pigmented but needs 2-3 swipes for full shade on lids.The shimmer present isn’t not gritty .However,a good primer can definitely help in intensifying the shade.

Also,i mostly use this shade dry but it can be used wet as well!!

Staying power is around 6-7 hours which is great.

Max Factor Max Effect dip in eye shadow-06 Party Lime review,swatches & EOTD

I wanted to try a lime green shade since a long time but wasn’t able to find one that could use.When,i saw this dip in shadow from Max Factor,i thought of  giving it a try and now,i must say,it is a great shade and a great shadow!!!

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

ABOUT :Give your eyes a shot of intense, vibrant colour with Max Effect Dip in Eye Shadow. No shrinking violets, these 8 bold, modern colours range from green and purple to blue and pink. With its pearl and colour pigments, they provide a flash of colour and the perfect way to dip in and out of the latest fashion trends!

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

The precision sponge-tipped applicator is ideal for applying loose eye shadow powder, opening up the eyes with vibrant flashes of colour. To emphasise the lower eyelash margin, use the Dip-In Eye Shadow on the lower lashes. Perfect for lots of flirty fluttering!

PRICE: Rs.510

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

PACKAGING:The packaging is similar to Maybelline shadow stylist that was launched way back.They come in these small conical pots and a  precision sponge tip applicator that picks up loose pigment eyeshadow and eases the application !!

 

PARTY LIME; THE SHADE: The shade is a gorgeous and refreshing lime green with minute golden shimmer that adds to the beauty of the shade.Since,this is a pigment eyeshadow ,it is decently pigmented and the shade pops out its beauty!!!

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

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture of the eye shadow is smooth and the shimmer present is non-gritty.

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

The applicator does help in applying the pigment eyeshadow resulting in less fallout.I find it difficult to apply this without any proper base .With base,it intensifies and adheres for a  longer period!

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

 

The finish is pearly and it looks very beautiful!!

It is easy to blend with other products and eye shadows of different finishes and textures..

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

This is a very beautiful shade but i don’t wear it much as it is very loud and bold and i like neutral looks more !!

Staying power is around 4-5 hours without nay base and 8-9 hours with primer and a similar shade base!!

PROS:

  • Handy,travel friendly packaging.
  • has less fallout.
  • the shimmer present is not at all gritty.
  • great summery shade.
  • decently pigmented.
  • decent staying power with a base.
  • blends well with other shadows.

 

CONS:!

  • has a bit of fallout.
  • slightly expensive.
  • might be streaky for some.

 

RATING: 3.5/5

RECOMMENDATION: It is a great product provided you can carry such shade but altogether it is a fun product to have in vanity!!!

MAX FACTOR COLOUR ELIXIR LIPSTICK-730 FLUSHED FUCHSIA REVIEW & SWATCHES

Image

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:For instant fabulous colour and smoother, softer* lips over time look no further than Max Factor’s new Colour Elixir Lipstick. The Elixir formula contains a 60% blend of skin emollients, conditioners and antioxidants including vitamin E, for a visible transformation in the look and feel of your lips. As you apply the Colour Elixir Lipstick, it actively moisturises and smoothes lips. Enjoy rich and gorgeous looking colour on smooth, beautiful lips.
*vs bare lips.

PRICE:Rs.750 for 4 gm

Image

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.
