REVIEW: Revlon ColorStay Creme Gel Liner in Plum Prune

I had read quite raving reviews about this product for non-Indian beauty blogs and when I saw them at the Revlon counter in Pune Central, I knew I had to have at least of these... I did think of grabbing two of these, the brown one and the purple one, but the Sensible Suma that does pop up once in a while warned me against it and advised me to first try out one of them. So I automatically picked up the purple one and brought it home with me.

My first reaction when I opened it was like "It's soooo tiny" and no the reaction was not in a cute way. It was more out of indignation than anything else... I mean they made me pay about 650/- bucks on such a tiny dibbi??? Then I took out the tiny brush that came with it and the cute way it would park itself inside the cap of the container lightened my mood and I was hopeful again :) Pigmentation wise it was superb and I love the little sparkly purple line that it created in just one stroke :)

I wore it and lo and behold, within an hour it vanished! It Vanished Into Thin Air!!! Can you even imagine my dismay :( Well on the brighter side it didn't smudge or crease or run down my face but it did vanish like Mr. India and nope that didn't earn any brownie points from me :( I made my mom try it and well her lids aren't as oily as mine and it fared much better on her... So am guessing it's my oily lids to blame (?)...

Eye Swatch


Ooohhss And Aaahsss!!!
1. Pretty shade
2. Good pigmentation
3. Does not cause any allergies or reactions
4. Does not irritate the eyes
5. Seems to be waterline safe
6. Does not smudge or crease
7. Waterproof
8. The brush that comes with it is of a good quality
9. Gives good pigmentation in just one stroke

1. Does not stay on oily lids
2. Priced on the higher side especially for the little amount of product you get in the tiny glass jar.

It costs around INR 650/ or 695/- for 2.4 gms. I don't remember the exact price, so go ahead correct me :)

Nah! With the amount of oil my eye lids generate, it would be smarter for me to invest in some other gel liners ;)

Would I Recommend
Well, if you do not have oily lids and love a sparky purple liner, then this is for you :) It doesn't smudge or crease and no it doesn't give you purple raccoon eyes ;)
But if you have oily lids then this product is simple useless for you as it wont stay on you for an hour...

Overall Rating:
Oily Lids: 4/10
Normal/Dry Lids: 8/10


  1. r u kidding ? it dsnt stay on oily lids? shit :( i really wanted this for the pretty purple ! but my lids r oily :( sigh ! will have to stick to my colorbar amethyst iglide ...

  3. the color looks pretty, My lids are strange all the liners seem to stay well on me but all the eyeshadows without the prime just seem to go away .. even the glorious paint pot.. I believe am more oily towards the crease n it creases on the crease :) ha ha

    1. hahahahaha impressed with the in-depth analysis that you have done on your lids ;) sign of a true makeup enthusiast i must say ;)

  4. uhhhh..a liner that disappears well even though I have non oily lids but am definitely not spending my money on a hit or miss product...u look sexy in the LOTD though

    1. yeah you could describe it as a hit or miss... but it sure does have some raving reviews on blogs abroad, which is why i bought it.. but it just didn't work for me :(

  5. thank goodness I didnt get any! but thats really bad..for 650 bucks its definitely not worth it!

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

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…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
