Hey guys! This week is just not ending! I want Saturday to be here already!
Here is another pretty nail polish with a less an impressive formula. It’s another one of the Formula X for Sephora ones. Standout is from the New Neutrals range and is a creamy and pearlescent finish.
Standout is a lovely light nude shade. I wouldn’t call this a baby pink, but it is a very pale warm pink. It’s the perfect manicure colour! I’m surprised I don’t have anything like, its a very dupeable shade.
It’s a cream polish but it has white pearlescent bits in it as well. It’s very noticeable in the bottle but doesn’t really show up on the nail.
I’ve had a mad week recovering from a cough but things are slowly getting back to normal. I feel like this month went by in a flash! That aside, here’s another nail polish from the Formula X for Sephora range.
Orbit is a true navy blue and one from the New Classics or cream finish range. It’s on the darker side but a gorgeous staple kind of shade. But I’m not too impressed with the quality, especially at the price.
It’s thick consistency wise and that makes application a bit more tedious. It can go on a bit streaky and mine came with a part of the brush sticking out. It can also apply unevenly so you need two thick coats to get it to look even. On a smaller...
I’ve had this lip gloss for a while now but I don’t think I’ve used it a lot. I’m going through this phase where I’m discovering makeup I bought a while back that I haven’t used often. It’s unsettling, it means I need to stop shopping for quite a while!
On that though, I’m thinking of doing a blog sale but I’m just not sure if I should. I personally never buy from blog sales because I don’t like used makeup. It would be ironic right?
Going back to the review, here’s L’oreal Glam Shine Reflexion Lip Gloss in the shade Sheer Framboise. The shade is a bright warm pink. Almost like a warm fuchsia with pink and silver...
I got a package from Elle 18 with some of the new products. I was very anxious to try this.
The Elle 18 Glow Foundation comes in 4 shades. Here I have it in Shell quick is a pretty alright match for me.
First off, I would really call this a foundation, it feels much more like a tinted moisturizer. A very average one.
You typically get sheer coverage which gives a natural look and can cover up some unevenness in your skintone. But I don’t like the finish if you try to build it up, it sort of sticks and accentuates problem areas. Unless of course, you have gorgeous skin, you can work well with it.
It also feels very much like a lotion when you apply it. It has a thin but creme like...
I did a bit a of a Kleancolor and Nyx haul from eBay where I bought a set of Kleancolor mini nail polishes. It was so cheap, like $10 for 6 bottles, why not?!
Firstly, I’ve tried different types of Kleancolor nail polishes and honestly, I don’t like the quality. The smell is way too strong for me, very chemical and toxic like. I honestly never wear this on my fingers, only toes because it just feels uncomfortable on my nails.
Also, the consistency most of the times is very heavy and gloopy!
That said, this is one colour that performs well and is really pretty! Kleancolor Vegas Night is a mix of bright blue and purple glitter in a blue jelly base. The blue glitter is more round...
I’ve always wanted to try Clarins skincare but it’s just so damn expensive! Luckily, I was given this because a family member didn’t want to use it (omg what? why?) but in any case, good news for me!
The Clarins HydraQuench range in general is for hydration and moisturizing. There are a couple of different types available and also one including SPF 15. This one is the HydraQuench Cream meant for normal to dry skin.
Texture wise it’s a very rich and soft cream. It’s easy to apply, bleands well and wbsorbs quickly too. There’s no greasy feeling left behind or anything of the sort.
But I did find major issues with the longevity of this depending on how I...
Muted pinks and purples are another favourite of mine. I feel like this pink is great to wear for office as well. It’s the Chambor nail polish in the shade Cashmere.
The name Cashmere has a nice ring to it and the colour feels very luxe as well. It’s creme polish in a muted dusty pink colour. In the spectrum of rosy pinks this one is warm and medium toned, not too light nor too dark. I’m in love with this colour! Looks very feminine and sophisticated. I feel like it would suit all skintones.
I’m not too happy about the quality though. It applies well enough but you really have to measure how much product you are taking onto the brush. The consistency is thicker for a...
I wanted a try a few more Inglot products because I was super impressed with the eyeshadows. These test tube like Sleeks lip glosses really caught my eye because they had so many colours and shimmers. I picked this bright orange one since I don’t really have a colour like this.
Inglot Sleeks Lip Gloss in 45 is bright orange, slightly muted and packed with gold and orange shimmer. The shimmer is very dense and very much noticeable! I love the colour in the tube, but on me it didn’t translate well.
The pigmentation is not great, it’s sheer which would be fine but it’s very difficult to build it up because it applies very uneven. For the most part it looks like a tint...
I wanted to try L’occitane hair products a few months back. I picked the L’occitane Volumizing Conditioner which I think is from the Aromachologie range.
Firstly, this is a very gentle and mild conditioner meant for fine and normal hair. If you have very thick and dense hair it might seem like you need too much of this product to make it work. I say that because I have fine hair and even I feel like the need to use more conditioner than I usually do.
The conditioner is white in colour and lotion like in consistency. It’s thinner than your average conditioner. This has a very pleasant fragrance which a bit citrusy and minty. I do like that a lot!
This does condition hair...
I wish this week would be over already! It’s only Tuesday and I feel like it’s been 10 days since I got a break! Really feel like going away somewhere!
I’m not too excited about this product. I sure was when I bought it. It was early days when I started using makeup and I wanted a bunch of neutral colours. I think this palette from Bourjois was also priced at Rs. 650 at the time. It’s gone up to Rs. 845 now.
Bourjois Smokey Eyes Trio in Lady Vert De Gris is a taupey brown shade. These are actually perfect colours for a smokey eye if you like taupes. But the eyeshadows, I’m not too fond of. These are the baked variety, one I’ve always had a problem with....
Winter is here and I’m so pleased! Boots, scarves, sweaters can now be flaunted! ^_^
Well that has nothing to do with my review here but I’m just excited! It’s quite odd to review masks because really, how can you measure how much of a difference a mask makes? I’ll try to be as detailed as I can.
The Body Shop Honey & Oat 3 in 1 Scrub Mask is obviously targeted towards lazy people like me who’d like cleansing, exfoliation and moisturizing to be done all in one! This one smells like honey and cereal but for some reason I wasn’t too fond of it. It isn’t bad or unpleasant, but I just didn’t find it very appealing.
This has a creamy...
TGIF! I’m so looking forward to this weekend to just chill and unwind! I planning interiors for my new room and I’m getting lost with all the choices!
This is an old purchase, so I’m glad the shelf life is 36 months! Milani makes amazing liners for a great price and I bought the Easyliner Glitter Eyeliner in Purple Quartz. The colour is purple with silver glitter. There’s the chunkier silver glitter which can be spotted easily and also the subtle fuchsia/violet shimmer in it as well. The colour is really pretty and bright. It’s nice to wear it on it’s own to give a pop of colour.
The pigmentation is good but not the best I’ve seen. You need to go...
Maybelline relaunched the Colossal Kajal a while back. I’m not sure if the formula is entirely new but they claim that it lasts 12+ hours, is smudge proof and water proof! Let’s see about that!
I had actually never used the Colossal Kajal before. I know, shocking! I always had Lakme, some other Maybelline one but once I found perfection in my Mac Technakohl Liner, I didn’t really look for any others.
The Colossal Kajal is very soft and creamy to apply. You kinda have to be careful to not break it while applying! The colour is a very intense black and overall I’m happy with the consistency. Being a kohl, it is safe to use on the waterline which I also liked. This does...
Happy Independence Day! No, I didn’t get up super early but the loud speakers did wake me up.
Today I’ll be reviewing Forest Essentials Light Day Lotion in Indian Rose & Marigold. It’s a very light lotion as the name says, not ideal for winters if you have very dry skin. But it’s great to use for summers when you want something light that will absorb quickly.
The consistency is really light but not runny. You need about 2-3 pumps to cover your face and neck with this.
It has a mild rose scent that’s also very nice. My only peeve with this is that it doesn’t really last as long. Generally, after 3 hours I feel the bits around my lips getting a bit dry...
I’m having a lovely cup of tea and the weather outside is just perfect. Sometimes all you want is a refreshing beverage, a nice candle and something to focus on. It’s been a productive Sunday so far! Anyway, today I’ll be reviewing a water based make up remover. Yes, one of those.
Before I start, I should mention that the packaging of this product might have changed. When I was looking for links to buy this I saw a different one. So the product might be the same but the packaging and labelling has changed.
Caudalie’s Cleansing Water is a very gentle makeup remover which can is also eye safe and removes makeup quite easily. What I like best about this is that it...
