REVIEW of Lancome Designer Bloom Lipstick in Sheen


Guest Post By: Mrittika

At times I really wonder the evolution of different textures, finishes and looks of makeup. I mean who made all these???

So here today I’ll be sharing a lipstick with a sheen finish. Well this lipstick was a gift from my aunty from US quite some time back. I was using this lipstick every day. I don’t know but I felt that the day I applied this lipstick, my day went well. Yes, it doesn’t make any sense but somehow I was kind of superstitious as I was going through a bad phase at work.

So now coming to the packaging, it’s nothing fancy. Plain and simple black plastic. The shade is a mixture of mauve and pink. If it hadn’t been a pearly finish, it would surely make a great shade. It has in numerous micro silver shimmers which give the pearly finish. Due to its pearly finish, the colour doesn’t show well in a single swipe. I have to apply a couple of swipes to make it visible. The texture of the lipstick is very thin. It glides on smoothly. It has a very poor staying power. Hardly 2 hours.











Ooohhhsss and Aaahhsss:
  1. Doesn’t make lips dry
  2. One swipe gives your lips very little colour but makes it look good

Oouches:
  1. Lots and lots if shimmers (not a fan of them)
  2. Poor staying power

Recommendation:
No. I don’t feel happy for having it and those who don’t own, will not feel bad about it also.

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 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…

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.
