Review Of Maybelline Hyper Curl Mascara...

Guest Post By: Marianne

I am, and always was, more of an eye-makeup person than a lip-makeup person. Kajal was the very first makeup product I used, and I started using liquid liners before the pencil ones! Even if I am in a complete rush while getting ready, I use a single swipe of kajal, if not anything else. So it’s kind of funny that I never was attracted to mascara. It was only some months back that I decided to try one, just to see what it was all about. Up for review today is my very first mascara.

I completely love makeup and beauty-related things, but I am the kind of person who won’t bear pain or discomfort for the sake of looking good. Case in point: eyelash curlers. Yes, I know they are harmless, but somehow bringing that thing so close to my eyes and squeezing my lashes between it totally scares me! The Hypercurl mascara thus promised to be a good option for my foray into mascaras...quite affordable, and with claims of “Volumized + curled lashes for 18 hours” (Maybelline India site).

The packaging is really pretty with a silver-capped black tube with metallic pink lettering. The full ingredients list is mentioned in microscopic letters. The mascara wand is very slightly bent. The length is of the handle is issues while applying.

Now for the most important part – the performance on the lashes. I have quite thin eyelashes which are not very noticeable. They don’t have a natural curl to them either. I generally wiggle the brush and then hold it at the tips of the lashes to create a curl and it works fairly well. The effect may not be as pronounced as that of an eyelash curler, but it does provide some lift, and that is good enough for me! You don’t get mega-volume or anything with this mascara, but it does make lashes blacker and more noticeable, as you can see in the pictures. It does not take long to dry, and is completely waterproof (they have a washable version as well). It lasts for ages and does get a bit hard to remove sometimes. The downside is that it tends to clump when you apply more than one coat. As far as I remember, it did not clump much when it was new but after a few months of use, the clumping is very much there.

1. Affordable
2. Provides decent lift and enough volume for an everyday look.
3. Waterproof
4. Full ingredients list mentioned.

1. Slightly tough to remove
2. Clumps a bit when you layer it on.

Price Of The Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara:

INR 200! (Both the waterproof and washable versions)

Will I repurchase?
Probably not. But not because I don’t like it, just because there are so many more options to try.

Recommendation –
Overall, a good product for the price. Try it if you want an affordable mascara for everyday use and are not too particular about getting a lot of volume.

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 of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
