Most eyeshadows crumble a bit when used wet but this is an exception which might be ude to mineral nature of the eyeshadow.

It glides on easily on lids and is a dream to blend with other shades.

wet swatch

I would say it has a bit of fallout when the eyeshadow brush is swiped on the shade but nothing after that. It can be used alone or with other shades.Also,you can build up th epigmntation of  the shade.It can be used as a single wash of sheer colour all over the lids for day wear or can be intensified for a night look.

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

This shade is decently pigmented and the pigmentation definitely increases when used wet.

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

Staying power is also good or about 6-7 hours without a primer.

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

PROS:

  • cute packaging.
  • mineral based eyeshadow.
  • soft and smooth texture.
  • decent staying power.
  • doesn’t crease for about 5-6 hours.
  • glides on smoothly on lids.

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

PACKAGING:The packaging is simple with a white lustrous(velvety) body and a blue cap.

PROPERTIES:I really adore the fragrance of this product.It is mild and very delicate.Very  royal,very velvet.

Though this range is meant of  40+,i was somehow curious to try htis powder scrub as it looked promising and claimed ot be a skin polisher.

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

I love doing scrubs and all and this product came as a pleasant surprise.

The granules  are very soft and mild and they dissolve in water and form a soft paste king of thing.When applied on face,you can feel that some sort of scrubbing is taking place but it starts transforming into a little foamy texture .The scrub does remove dead skin and my face looks clean and glowy after using this.

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

It makes my facial skin extremely soft and i usually use this prior any make up application and my face looks very flawless!!

As per the firming claims,i cannot say anything as i haven’t felt any firming on skin or such.

How I use: I pour some powder scrub onto my hand and add 2-3 drops of water to make it into a thick paste.I ,then scrub y wet face with this and the granules slowly start dissolving and form a  foamy texture which can penetrate into the skin on further circular strokes.Wash my face and the result is soft and glowey skin.

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

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

It doesnt feel sticky or leave any slippery feeling.

One thing i would like to mention is that Deborah Milano does beautiful job in designing there products but all the charm is taken away by the price stickers that are there on each product which deteriorates the look of the product.They can use a transparent cover/plastic over the new products!!!

Oriflame Very Me Incredibalm review & swatches

WORDS FROM ORIFLAME:Forget thirsty lips! Vitamin E and jojoba oil enriched Incredibalm softens your lips and gives your pout a hint of colour. Perfect alone or as a lip-quenching base under your favourite gloss.

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

PRICE:Rs.198 for 8ml

PACKAGING:It comes out with a small tube packaging. The applicator of the balm is what i don’t like much.It shows the shade name to be ‘pink’ but this is available in one shade only.

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

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

THE SHADE:Although the package said pink, when I swatched it, it looks more like a pale peach color. I really like this shade as it gives an appearance of baby lips(soft and supple).
???????????????????????????????

 

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The balm moisturizes well and also it is good to use alone. It is perfect base for lipsticks. Has nice fruity fragrance.Finish is sheer as all the balms have.
