REVIEW: L'Oreal Kohl Minerals Eyeliner


I went cosmetics shopping over the weekend in Mumbai and ended up buying a lot of L’Oreal products. One product that I had on my wishlist since pretty long was the Kohl Minerals Powder and so I picked it up with great enthusiasm in Meteorite Blue. I used it this morning for office and have had a mixed feelings experience.
L'Oreal Kohl Minerals Eyeliner

What the site says
Whether you're going for dramatic smokey eyes, or a softer romantic 'barely-there' look, Mineral Kohl makes achieving perfect eyeliner easy. In 3 mineral inspired shades the gentle mineral eyeliner is 95% from minerals and perfume, preservative and talc free.
The gentle formula is enriched with Vitamin E and Aloe making it suitable for the delicate eye area.
It has no Perfumes and no preservatives and contains mineral pigments for gentle definition.

My Experience
I purchased it cause it looked different, had a novel packaging and I simply loved the shade of blue that was on offer… Meteorite Blue!
Here's a swatch...
Loved the shade: Meteorite Blue
Packaging
Like I already said, I just loved the new and novel container of the eye liner. It looks smart, is portable and looks a bit intimidating at first ;)
The transparent plastic helps in gauging the amount of contents left. It has a perforated layer that helps adequate amount of product to be used and is extremely helpful, something like the packaging of loose powder.

Perforated Layer
 
Application and Applicator
The angled and sleek brush applicator that comes with it is extremely soft and yet stiff and makes lining the eyes very easy and convenient. A little product gives a lot of definition and is highly pigmented. It does have a lot of fall-out :(


The innovative applicator

Consistency and Feel
The mineral powder is very light and is highly pigmented. The subtle sparkle and glitter that it contains looks beautiful on the eyes and doesn’t look tacky at all. Also a plus is that it is odorless :)

Overall Experience
I have had a bittersweet experience with it. The color and pigmentation is what I loved. But it’s major fall-out and non-long staying power put me off a bit :(

In order to summarize, let me list down the pros and cons. So, here goes…

PROs
  • Awesome color
  • Highly pigmented
  • Just enough glitter
  • Odorless
  • Reasonably priced at around 500 bucks
  • Easy and convenient application
  • Soft and good quality applicator
  • Love the novel packaging

CONs
  • It isn’t very long stay
  • Smudges easily
  • Has a lot of fall-out
  • Less variety of shades

Will I use it again?
Hmmmm… I guess so.. There is something extremely attractive about the product :D

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
