Review on Avon Extra Lasting Lip gloss in the shade Endless Watermelon.

I do not like using lip gloss a lot because I prefer lipsticks.But when I went through the Avon brochure,this lip gloss somehow looked really attractive to me.Lip gloss are used for any look, but for me it would go with a Smokey look.
Coming to this one, the packaging is really simple. It has a normal lip gloss packaging with a black cap and a wand for applying the lip gloss.I find the packaging simple and cute. It is travel friendly and even fits in the pocket. The wand helps to remove a proper quantity of the gloss and so it wont get wasted
or wont spill.

Talking about the texture and colour, the shade Endless Watermelon is a peachy golden gloss with shimmer.I really like the fact that it is pigmented and would give a smooth look on the lips. After applying it does feel a little bit heavy on lips, but that stays only for a bit of time.This colour can be used either on top of a lipstick or just the lip gloss. I like using this for my night look paired with a black Smokey look. The texture is quite moisturizing and smooth to use, so you might not need a lip balm for this.

IMG_20160829_113101-01-01

The staying power is really good as it stays for a longer time.It has a slight fragrance but that doesn’t linger for a long time.I like this shade a lot but I would like to try other shades too.The most important thing is that to buy Avon products can be bought only through their representatives which sometimes can be tedious to find.But for the price it offers, it is a really nice lip gloss and Avon generally has discounts every month on their products,so you might get them at a reasonable price.

In all, this lip gloss is an affordable one and if you like such type of lip shades you can go for it. I would skip it and try other shades.

Have you used any lip gloss from this range?? What do you think about this??  It would be great if you would comment below and share your favourites.

NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM IN PRAGUE – REVIEW AND SWATCH

22 Aug

Hey all,

NYX cosmetics has recently launched in India and is the talk of the town currently. Initially this brand was available on international sites or in Sephora but luckily they are now accessible through Nykaa.com. Isn’t that great?? This brand has good quality makeup stuff with many shades and varieties.

If you have been following our blog, I have already reviewed one of NYX soft matte lip cream in San Paulo , you can check the review here. Today I am going to review another shade from the matte lip cream range called Prague.

The names of these lip shades sound so classy . I am really fond of this range and so after searching for a shade for my skin tone, I chose Prague. Lets see how well it suits me??

IMG_8929-01

About NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague:-

Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy colour and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favourite.

Price–  Rs 600.

Availability– Available on Nykaa.com.

My Review on NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague:

IMG_8946-01 (1)

 

NYX Prague is one of the best shades I have ever used . Though they have many awesome shades, I always like to try shades which are similar to  pink, berry and red. It comes in a normal lip gloss kind of packaging and has a black colour cap on it.

It is a nice berry shade with a hint of pink and I am sure it will be a hit with the Indian skin tones. On application, the colour glides on smoothly and looks perfect on exfoliated lips. It is anytime better to exfoliate your lips, apply a lip balm, wipe the lip balm with a tissue and then apply this lip colour. As this is a matte lip cream, it is advisable to do the above step or else it can settle in fine lines and make them visible.

After applying this lip colour, it feels very light and stays for a longer time. I really like lip colours which stay for a longer time . Talking about the price , I feel its really affordable and it can be used for a longer time

IMG_20160822_112409-01

So , I would highly recommend this one for people who want to try something in berry shade. You will really like this one.

Let me know how you like this one and do follow us on Facebook and Instagram for further updates

Enjoyy,

Review-Maybelline Baby Lips Antioxidant Berry Lip Balm

20 Jun

 

Lips are the best feature for many of us where we can experiment with different colours and products. I remember this Alia Bhatt ad for Maybelline, it was an ad for Baby Lips Lip Balm range. The moment I saw it I knew I had to buy them. Since then I have been addicted to this range and keep on trying their variants . They have various tinted and non tinted lip balms in this range. In my todays post, I would be reviewing Maybelline Baby Lips Antioxidant Berry Lip Balm.

My Review on Maybelline Baby Lips Antioxidant Berry Lip Balm

I have tried many lip balms like we all do. I literally have lot of lip balms here and there.. So I got this one because I needed something which is non tinted and moisturizing. To start with, I really liked the packaging of this lip balm, it is blue and pink in colour which looks cute. It comes with a retractable stick which is handy and travel friendly.  If I am not in a mood to carry my handbag, this fits in my wallet . So it gets a plus point there.

Maybelline_Berry_3

While applying, the lip balm goes smooth on the lips and just two or three swipes are needed. After applying this my lips feel soft and nourished. I love the slight berry fragrance in it  though it doesn’t stay for a longer time. As it is non tinted, it gives a bit of  shine to the lips. It gives instant hydration. I use this lip balm mostly all the time. It has SPF 20 which is a plus point again. For me , this comes as a boon before applying matte lipsticks. The effect stays for a few hours on the lips ,so I keep on reapplying it.

In all this is a must have lip balm if you looking for a non tinted one. Let me know how do you like it?? I will be reviewing one more from this range soon.

Enjoyy,

Price: Rs 315 on nykaa.com

My Take on Lakme 9 to 5 Creaseless Lpstick in Fuschia field:-

Fuschia field is a vibrant and bright pink shade. It comes in a golden packaging and looks super elegant. To be honest, I am a bigggg fan of Loreal and MAC lipsticks so never ever thought of using any other brands. Lakme always had some god collections and shades, but I feel this is the best one. It is super creamy, pigmented and doesnt settle in fine lines. This can be used for the day and night look.The best part of this lipstick is it contains SPF15 and essential oils which is good for the lips.

For the day and night look, this can be teamed up with a swipe of kajal. It is totally apt for those cute lovey dovey dates and proffessional work parties.It instantly makes the face look brighter and stays for a longgg time. I usually prefer applying lip balm , then wiping it off and then applying this shade. This shade can suit most of the Indian tones but as it is a brighter one , you need to wipe the excess with the tissue. If you face the problem of dry lips, then it is god if you apply the lip balm before applying this

Conclusion:- Fuschia field is definitely about”Something hot.. Something bright… Something pink”, If you looking for a bright lip shade , then this one is definitely the one for you.

The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm Review

12 Sep

 

IMG_8629 (1)

Hello everyone,
Its been a year now that I am using The Body Shop products. I love their entire range of skincare and body. They really smell good and are effective. My latest addition from The Body Shop is The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm.

About Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm :-

Price– Rs 275

My Review on The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm:-

IMG_8644 (1)

Coming to the review, first of all this stuff comes in a tub which is transparent so you can actually check the amount of product left in it. I wish it came with a small spatula so it was easy and hygenic to use it. When applied on lips, it moisturises and conditions them well. The lip balm is red in colour but when applied on lips , it just gives a slight red tint and makes the lips look glossy. One thing I really love about it is that it smells of strawberries. The smell is really refreshing. It stays on my lips for a really good time , but I have a habit of reapplying it in three to four hours. I feel its good for all the seasons, but we may need something better for winters.

Overall, I do recommend The Body Shop Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm. If you love their range of Strawberry, this is a must try then.

Enjoyy,
Sonal.
