REVIEW: Colorbar Perfect Match Beauty Balm (BB Cream)


I like being tanned. The fact that all kinds of makeup look fabulous on tanned skin is a reason, yes... But the fact that it validates my outdoorsy activities gives me kind of satisfaction that is second to none. I play an hour of Lawn Tennis every morning and hence the tanning is a given especially in these Summer months...




However, not everything is hunky-dory with a tan. Apart from the fact that it is next to impossible to tan evenly, the fact that your foundation shade is continuously changing is something that I loathe dealing with when tanned. And hence I decided to take a hiatus from using foundations and turned to BB Creams instead... I have always been a huge fan of The Body Shop Vitamin E BB Cream but this time I was looking for something new, something that I hadn't tried before and something whose reviews I had not read before because simply put I wanted to be surprised...

So I walked up to the Colorbar Counter and got myself matched to the shade Honey Glaze 002 in the Colorbar Perfect Match Beauty Balm.

 The first thing I noticed about the BB cream when I first swatched it on my forearm was the fact that it felt very light and blended right into my skin... I immediately bought it since I had been struggling with the summer heat and I literally was looking for something that would disappear into my skin...

Price of Colorbar Perfect Match Beauty Balm

It costs INR 550/-

I have been using this BB cream continuously for the past 2 weeks and I am highly impressed with this product. It gets absorbed right into my skin without making it look oily, shiny. powdery or patchy rather it leaves a velvety finish on my skin and it makes me look healthy. Additionally, it has very light coverage but it magically evens out the skintone making one look naturally flawless! I am not kidding when I say that it is probably one of the best drugstore BB Creams I have ever used!






The BB Cream itself is of a runny consistency, however when you spread it, it dries up real fast and hence you have got to blend it the moment you dot it on your face. Another con of the product is that it applies patchy if you have not moisturised your skin properly and hence you have got to prime your skin well before applying this BB Cream.

The tube contains very less product and I am already on my second tube after using the first one for 10-12 days...

Recommendation:
I highly recommend this BB cream and I think it would suit beauties across all skin types.

Overall Rating:
8.5/10

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.
