REVIEW: Maybelline Colorsensational Jewels Lipstick in ♥ Pink Tourmaline ♥

Maybelline as a brand I feel is very tuned to India (though there is no excuse for launching the color tattoos and baby lips one year late) but the lippy shades and the eye palettes that it does launch in India are very flattering to our skin tones. In the same tune, they launched their Jewels Range just before the festivities started... Dussehra, Diwali and then the extravagant Indian Wedding season...

The lippy that I shall be talking about and hence reviewing today is Pink Tourmaline from the Colorsensational Jewels range. It is pink, it is frosted and it is festive! Now before you go away thinking to yourself "Ewww I don't wear frosted lippies that too in Pink", might I add that I myself never wear frosted lippies but this wonder here has made me see frosted lippies in a brand new light altogether :) It has an understated frost and it doesn't look OTT and definitely doesn't make you look like an actress from the 90s ;) If you know what I mean :P

It is a beautiful shade and super flattering. How does Maybelline come up with such shades is quite a riddle for me!

Like it's older colorsensational counterparts, this is also super moisturising, non-drying and very well pigmented... The packaging is super pretty and the quantity you get for the price is just so awesome and budget friendly :) It's staying power (on me) is almost 6 hours with 3 cups of coffee, 1 bowl of cornflakes and 4 bourbon biscuits... Yup I counted whatever I ate just for you guys ;)

Oooohhsss And Aaaahhhsss!!!
1. The shade is flattering to the core!
2. The packaging is beautiful
3. It has an understated frost, which isn't jarring or 90s.
4. It is super moisturising.
5. Doesn't dry my lips.
6. Good pigmentation.
7. Doesn't cause any irritation/itching/flaking
8. Pocket friendly price.

Ouches!!!
1. Nothing really except the fact that people wary of frosted lipstick shades might not find it very appealing!

Price
It costs INR 350/-

Repurchase?
I would definitely! Actually, I mught just try other shades from this range too ;)

Would I Recommend?
If you have a light or medium skin tone then you should surely go for it especially if you are looking for a festive Pink lip shade. Darker toned girls might find the shade a bit jarring on them.

Overall Rating
9/10

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: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

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.
