Review of Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Khol in Violet

Since my childhood I was never a very artistic kid. I mean generally children supposedly love to draw and color and stuff but I never enjoyed it and even though my parents tried to get me into the "groove" I never relented. Imagine the frustration they had especially since one of them is a fabulous oil painter and the other is into creating some out of this world sketches... And so finally they gave up on me...

However, one thing that I distinctly remember is the texture of crayons. Now remember when we were kids there came 3 kinds of crayons, one was the wax crayons that never gave a smooth and opaque color payout. The second kind was the plastic crayons that were smooth and silky to touch and colored a little too smoothly almost as if they would slip from your hands and then there was the third kind, the oil crayons that had crazy crazy pigmentation, was smooth and even and a created a thick coat of color on whatever you were coloring...


Well the Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Khol falls in the first category. It is uneven, not very pigmented and a little too hard to apply. Well, to put it clearly, it feels a little chalky. Plus its a little brittle and hence breaks easily. On top of it, it smells a little weird.

But not all is bad with this little piece of color. It stays put for pretty long without fading, smudging or flaking and hence is fabulous as an eye shadow base...

Price of Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Khol

It costs INR 325/-

Below are images of when used as an eye liner and as eyeshadow base.

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.
