REVIEW: NYX Cosmetics Matte Bronzer in Deep Tan

I wear makeup everyday... It started out with simply a kajal in high school which slowly but surely graduated to lip glosses. Mascara followed suit and one day I found myself not able to go on without a blush and an eye brow pencil as well... Lately however, the latest to join my "everyday" makeup must dos are highlighters and matte bronzers...

I don't contour so much but I have come to realise that strategically placed bronzers and highlighters can do wonders for one's look and amp it up to look effortlessly chiseled. Now, who wouldn't want that?

Enter NYX Matte Bronzer...

Finding matte bronzers in India is quite a task and then when you narrow your search to drugstore brands, it is next to impossible to find a decent and a truly matte bronzer... I was honestly tired of using my MAC Cork eye shadow as a bronzer because I couldn't make up my mind about spending a bomb on something as frivolous as a bronzer... And then NYX entered the Indian markets and changed everything...

Price of NYX Matte Bronzer

It costs INR 850/-

The NYX Matte Bronzer comes in 3 shades - Light, Medium and Deep Tan... I picked up Deep Tan because I wanted to use it as a contour shade. If you are pale skinned and need something to simply "warm" up your complexion then Medium Tan should do. However, for contouring purposes Deep Tan is something you would want to consider. However, if you are dark skinned then you may find even Deep Tan to be a little too light and hence ineffective for contouring.
What I really like about the shade selection in the Matte Bronzer department by NYX is the fact that it does not have an Orange undertone and hence it works great to create depth and impart dimension to your makeup.

Texture wise it is very finely milled and is hence smooth and silky, which makes it a joy to apply on your skin. It has no fragrance and it can boast of a staying power of over 6 hours, which I think is fabulous!

However, my most favourite feature of the matte bronzer is that fact that it is not over pigmented. It is rather pretty light in a single coat and hence is great for beginners as well as for when you are in a hurry and are prone to make mistakes with your makeup. That said, the bronzer is build-able and hence it is very easy to find the right shade of "darkness" that you may covet to look beautifully contoured.

Overall Rating:

I highly recommend getting this bronzer in the shade Deep Tan in you are looking to contour

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.
