Easy Peasy Smokey look with a touch of Glitter!!

So,here’s a much awaited look for my dear friend Geetika.She wanted to do a smokey look with some peach in it.So,I went ahead and created a look using peach,black and  a bit of pink glitter.

It is super easy to do and takes about 5 minutes!!

Here are the steps :

1)Prep and prime your lids.Apply a soft medium brown in the crease blending it.

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

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

2)Now,apply your blackest black kohl or kajal that doesn’t crease.Be sure that the kajal is not too emollient.Apply it on lids from the rim till the crease.

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

Blend,blend and blend it them to get away from any harsh lines.

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

3)Now,take a black eyehadow.It is solely up to you for the kind of black shadow you want to use.It wanted a bit of shimmer so I went for that.You can go for matte black as well.Apply the black shadow on the smudged kohl.Dont swipe it across.Rather,pat pat pat to build the intensity.

??????????????????????????????? Now,you can go ahead and blend the black and the brown slightly in the crease to get and even look.

4) Apply your favorite peach eyeshadow.I used a peachy gold shadow to highlight the browbone and the inner corners of the eyes.Blend the peach shadow with the brown in the crease as well.

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

Apply kohl in the waterline.I skipped the liner here but you can apply it if you like.Applied the same black in the lower lid and smudged it with the brown shadow.Applied mascara.

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

Now,to add glam to the look,I applied a bit of pink glitter in the inner corners of the yes and blended the edges to get an even look.I used a glitter liner for this purpose.

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

The final look:

ELLE18 color pop 40(candy kiss) review & swatches

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

So,elle 18 has launched some shades in there colorpop range.I managed to get 2 and the third one that i really wanted was out of stock everywhere!!!

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

PRICE: rs.100 for 4.3 ml.

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

PACKAGING: The lipsticks have a simple no fuzz packaging with a black outer casing and the shade name and number is provided at the bottom.It becomes difficult at times to get the desired shade from vanity if you have more shades from the range as shade indication isn’t there but in 100 rs.,what you expect them to do!!!!

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

SHADE: The shade is a beautiful somewhat bright pink with slight peachy tones that look really beautiful.This shade will definitely suit all skin tones and can be a  MLBB shade for darker tones!!!

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

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture of the lipstick is amazing at the price tag it comes at.It is creamy and decently pigmented.The lipcolor glides on smoothly on lips and doesnt settle in the lip lines.

It can be used sheerly or built up heavily.

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

Staying power is around 2 hours which is very low .

The major con for me in these lipsticks is the fragrance which is very weird and makes me nausatic. It is some kind of waxy or chemcal-ish fragrance.

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

  • inexpensive.
  • decently pigmented.
  • creamy texture.
  • feels comfortable on lips.
  • doesn’t settle in the lip lines.
  • the shade will suit all skin tones.

 

CONS:

  • very low staying power.
  • awful fragrance.
  • availability might be an issue.

RATING: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: Despite the fragrance ,i will highly recommend this range and this shade as it is very pretty and available at a very reasonable price.This range is a go-to range for college girls and teenagers!!!

NEW Lakme’ Enrich Satin Lipstick-143 review & swatches

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

So,finally all the 26 shades are available at Lakme’ counters!!

I wanted to take 1 shade first and now i will be taking 3 more !!!

The new shades have 4-5 shades of peaches,pinks,2-3 lilac,plum,a maroon,and rest as usual browns and nudes!! I liked the fact that this time,the browns are wearable unlike those gaudy ones that were in the earlier collections!!!

For more information check out THIS !!!

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

PRICE: Rs.225

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

PACKAGING: The packaging is same as the earlier ones which i find very dull and low !!! However,at the price they come,i think its fine !!

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

The outer packaging is maroon colored with a matte finish.A golden band in middle with LAKME’ written on it.The shade number is provided at the bottom as well as on the top of the packaging!

SHADE:  The shade number 143 is a gorgeous peach with slight pink tones.It appears to be shimmer free when applied but it has loads of golden micro shimmer in it!!

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

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

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture of the lipstick is very creamy.It glides on smoothly on lips.I feel that i needs times to settle on lips as in case of the earlier enrich satin ones.If i swipe it twice,it becomes streaky and uneven which might be due to extreme creaminess.

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

The shade is decently pigmented and one swipes covers the lips to a great extent.

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

The lipstick might bleed if over applied and I think it will best suit fair to medium skin tones.

 

After the lipstick settles,it becomes a bit matte.It has the tendency to settle in the lip lines and it does accentuate dry areas of lips.Once applied,you will not notice shimmer in it!!

It is only after the lip color wears off that you can see shimmer se

comes out to be more pink on lips but it is more peach in person!!

comes out to be more pink on lips but it is more peach in person!!

PROS:

  • travel-friendly packaging.
  • glides on easily.
  • decently pigmented.
  • reasonably priced.
  • the shimmer present is finely milled.
  • reasonably priced.

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

CONS:

  • settles in the lip lines.
  • the shimmer also settles in the lips lines and stays after the lipstick wears off.
  • might look streaky on darker complexions.
  • this lipstick might break in hot climate as it is very creamy.
  • average staying power.

RATING: 3/5

RECOMMENDATIONI loved the shade but it takes time to settle and looks uneven if over applied.Glad that Lakme’ has finally added such shades and i would highly recommend trying this range as they are reasonably priced and the shades are very pretty!!!

Stay tuned for more summery shades from Lakme’ Enrich Satin range!!!!
