REVIEW SWATCHES: Favourite Lakme Enrich Matte Lipsticks

Review & Swatches of My Favourite Lakme Enrich Matte Lipsticks
Every once in a while a drugstore (afforadable) makeup brand comes up with a new launch that totally blows my socks off. Its a rare occurrence but it happens... The last time it happened was when Maybelline launched the Lip Gradation Lip Colors in India and I was complete bowled over. This time its Lakme that has me jump up with joy with their Enrich Matte Lipsticks...

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate
ISLM Writer: Ishleen
Hello everyone!
Today I am here with a very interesting Kajal review—which has been the most raved about almost all over the Indian Beauty market! A very wise man once said—Eyes are the windows to a woman’s soul—and one thing which spark off’s the Indian beauty to its utmost extent is a heavy kohl-rimmed eye! Eye makeup using kohl is something which Indian beauty’s love to bits because we generally do not like using eyeshadows on a daily basis!

REVIEW & SWATCHES: L'Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Colors

Review of L'Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Colors in Eve and Pretty Woman I am a sucker for glass products, pretty things and dabbas and dibbis of all sizes. But what I really am a sucker for is beautiful packaging. So imagine my glee when I receive these beauties from L'Oreal Paris in my mail. Their classy, shiny casing and more than gorgeous shades were enough to sweep me off my feet... But when I started using them I couldn't help but fall for this amazing product hook, line and sinker... Read on to know more :)

Review & Swatches: Lakme Absolute Gloss Stylist Lip Color

Lakme Absolute Gloss Stylist Lip Colors in Coral Sunset, Pink Pout and Burgandy Burn
Its always a pleasure for a Beauty Blogger to receive PR samples and if the samples in question are as colorful as these are then its a matter of sheer joy for the blogger to try them and eventually review them... The shades as you can see are simply gorgeous and such fun that one would be crazy to not fall in love with these beauties... I for one sure did! :)

Swatch Fest: Colorbar Color Intense Liquid Liner

Colorbar Color Intense Liquid Eyeliner Swatches!
You know those days when you wake up late or worse, wake up with a hangover, then just rush to office hoping that by the time you reach your desk, the caffeine in the coffee that you gulped down as a sorry excuse for breakfast kicks in and then your friend calls up and asks you to be ready to go clubbing directly from office... You say yes and then realise that you are not carrying any "clubbing appropriate" makeup with you! Story of my life? Not exactly but close ;)

Review of Faces 5 Eyeshadow Palette
Guest Post By: Shabby

I am more of a kajal and lip balm kind of woman and don.t usually indulge in heavy eye makeup especially eye shadows. But I love colors and this palette is all about colors. It is an eye shadow palette from Canadian Makeup Brand Faces.

REVIEW & LOTD: COlorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick on Over The Top 1

You all know my obsession with Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks and the way I just keep buying them. One very major reason for my love for these lippies is that they are really long staying and hence wearing them to office leaves me free from the hassle of touching them up in the middle of the day! You know what I mean don't you :) Nothing personal but I have always been the one to scoff at girls who crowd the washrooms to touch up make-up or even change their make-up :P I know I know many of you do it... Nothing wrong with that ;) The problem lies with me not you :P LOL! 
So anyways this "Over The Top" shade isn't really over the top if you know what I mean, rather it is a nice soothing "corally-pink" shade that looks beautiful and feminine! Nothing vampish about it! :D
Here are the comparison swatches, lip swatch and an LOTD with it :)




So do you think it's your color? :)

SWATCHES: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Purple

Faces Long Wear pencils need no introduction, they need no preview and they don't need any reviews. They are a cult favorite among make-up lovers and its fan base seems to be increasing by the day. I got myself another one called Purple and it is the most beautiful Purple eye pencil I have ever used :)

I am not reviewing the pencil cause I have already reviewed these pencils here.

REVIEW, SWATCHES & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Turquoise Blue

With Faces Long Wear Pencils taking over from Colorbar I-Glide ones in the beauty blog-o-sphere, it is no surprise that I am out with reviewing another one of them and ladies and gentlemen, today's shade is "Turquoise Blue". Yes I LOVE blue eye liners!!! Why? Cause they are vibrant and flattering and somehow puts the focus on your eyes even when u wear a Red Lipstick (speaking out of experience)! :D

Just recently, I reviewed Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue and since "Turquoise Blue" also fares the same, I am not repeating the same review over again. I'll just post swatches so that you guys know how pretty it looks :)

REVIEW, SWATCH & LOTD: Bharat & Dorris Cream Liner in Shade 12

I have always stayed away from brown eye liners cause I never found them flattering on me. I generally preferdark shades like black (duh!), plum, navy blue etc. But when I set my eyes on this, I knew I had to buy it! :D

I had earlier reviewed Shade 14, which was a gorgeous purple here. Today's post is about Shade 12, which is a stunning brown with golden specs and shimmer. I will not really be reviewing it cause my review would turn out to be the same as shade 14, so I'll leave you guys to drool over checkout some swatches and EOTDs :)

Honestly? I like this shade better than the purple one ;)

How it looks on the eye!

Price

Would I Recommend?
Yes yes and yes with all my heart :) If you stay in either Mumbai or Pune, then you better grab one! If you got some relatives this side, then ask them to get it for you :P No denying the fact that it's a beautiful shade :)

Overall Rating:
9/10

So which one did you guys like better? 12 or 14?

NOTD: Lakme True Color Nail Color in 250

I am on vacation but how much ever I tried staying away, Ihad to give in to my urge to update my blog :) Well yes people I miss you all and wanted to share with you guys this new shade of nail polish I am wearing right now...

I went to beauty centre today to check out and purchase some Lakme Absolute Color Crus Nail Colors but ended up buying the original Lakme True Color Nail Color in the shade "250"...

Isn't it a pretty pink? :)

Which is your favorite shade in this range?

REVIEW, SWATCHES & LOTD: Sleek iDivine Eye Shadow Palette in "Original"

A latest addition to my makeup stash is the loot I ordered from Sleek Makeup and well I am loving it :) Yes I am starting with the series of Sleek reviews from this post on and I promise to make you jealous fall in love with Sleek if you are not already! :P
So anyways, I am starting with reviewing the Sleek iDivine Palette in "Original". The review and swatches for "Bad Girl" will follow next. I chose "Original" over others is because of the variety of colors this palette offers. It has blues, greens, peaches, a purple, a black and a highlighter shade. The shadows are extremely well pigmented and have a "wet" effect to them. Not that they are the best quality shadows I have used, but for the price of $10.00, they are utterly awesome! The shadows have a very soft and smooth texture and the pigmentation is the best that I have seen. The colors in this palette are bold and are mostly of Satin, Velvety finish. Except for the Black which is a matte sha…
