REVIEW & SWATCHES: L'Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Colors

 

Review of L'Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Colors in Eve and Pretty Woman

I am a sucker for glass products, pretty things and dabbas and dibbis of all sizes. But what I really am a sucker for is beautiful packaging. So imagine my glee when I receive these beauties from L'Oreal Paris in my mail. Their classy, shiny casing and more than gorgeous shades were enough to sweep me off my feet... But when I started using them I couldn't help but fall for this amazing product hook, line and sinker... Read on to know more :)


When I first received these products, I expected them to be just like any other lip glosses and polishes that are currently all over the beauty scene and so I delayed using them for almost 2 days. Finally, one fine Monday morning, before going to work and wanting to cheer myself up from the Monday blues, I put my hand in my PR sample (yet to be tested) basket and brought out these beauties... I debated with myself over which shade would be appropriate for a Monday morning meeting and somehow the nude shade called Pretty Woman won over the bright Raspberry pink called Eve...





Price of L'Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Colors

They cost INR 499/- for 6 ml of product

I applied the gloss and the 2 things that caught my attention immediately were the fact the applicator wasn't really a doe-foot shaped but a heart shaped one and the other that the gloss smelled of fresh Rose water... The inverted heart shaped applicator is sheer genius and it covers one's lips so well and the pointed part of the heart helps in accurately applying the product over the edges of one's lips...







The yummy rose water flavour is sure a welcome change from candy flavored and strawberry flavored and honestly vanilla flavored lipsticks and so refreshing on a warm Summer day...
Texture wise the L'Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Colors is like water, very very light weight and cool to touch... I love them hands down!

One apprehension that I had when I saw how sheer and light they looked on swatching was that how ghastly they would look on my pigmented lips but wonders of wonders, these lip colors after 30 seconds of application darkened a little and opaquely covered my pigmented lips making the color look all even and smoothly applied :)

These lip colors stay on for pretty long as well and leave a very pretty and even (thank God!) stain behind on the lips that looks naturally very alluring and even innocently pretty :) The only con of the product is that after about 4 hours of wear I found my lips going a little dry. But that issue was soon overcome by wearing a lip balm underneath :)

Recommendation
I have nothing to say except that if you don't try them out then you sure are missing out on something amazing!

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: 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…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
