My Experience with Maybelline The Colossal Liner in Black

The packaging of the product is of a felt pen – very simple yet elegant and effective in use. The body is sleek black with a proper cap that shuts with a click. It is light weight and travel friendly too. The applicator i.e. the felt tip of 0.4 mm is extremely easy to use due to the desired flexibility. Even a beginner like me felt comfortable whilst application. With the tip, you can draw even the thinnest possible line on the eye lids and also increase the thickness as you want. The application is the best feature of the product. 

The shade is jet black with a great intensity. The liner has a liquid texture but very comfortable on eyes. It settles on with a semi matte finish and looks quite a beauty. The formula is not drying at all and neither does it form flakes or wears off with time. The pigmentation is class apart as single swipe is enough to give you proper intensity of color without dragging on the eyelids over and over again.
One of the greatest shortcoming of the product is that it is not waterproof at all. A splash of water on the face is enough for it to seep down and therefore it becomes hard to wear during rainy season. The staying power is around 5-6hours without any smudging or fading even on my oily eyelids. It comes off easily with any eye makeup remover without creating much fuss about it.

Cons of Maybelline The Colossal Liner in Black

Overall Rating:

The liner must be given a try for its great quality that provides although the washable factor might be a turn off for many. For this price, it is a great buy although I feel Maybelline can do better.

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 & 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.

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…
