My Review on NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo.

To be honest, this lip shade from NYX was on my wishlist since the first time I saw it on web. It was like love at first sight for me when I saw this shade. I love wearing different shades of pink and this one is my personal favourite. It is a rosy pink shade that brightens up my skin instantly on applying it. Coming to the pigmentation, it covers up the lips in the first application itself. I don’t feel the need to apply another coat of this. I always use a lip balm, wipe it off with a tissue and then apply this for the smooth application. It gives an even look to my lips , and as this is a matte lip cream, the texture is creamy and the fragrance is something similar to vanilla.. Though the scent goes away after applying it. The staying power is really amazing , I mean after having lunch and a coffee it still stays. This shade has earned me a lot of compliments and  it can be used for a daily makeup look.

Loreal has launched this amazing range of moisturizer..The one I will be reviewing is Loreal Paris White Perfect Fairness Control Moisturizing Day Cream

 

Loreal Paris White Perfect Fairness Control Moisturizing Day Cream-

This day cream comes in a tub packaging. Its a day cream which is white in colour. The texture is thick and creamy, you just a need to take a bit and apply on your face. As I have oily skin, I follow my CTM routine and then apply this as a moisturizer.. It takes a bit to absorb , but makes the skin look brighter… I feel the plus point is that it contains SPF 17 which is good as I don’t need to apply a sunscreen again.. Overall, I have been using this cream since a week now, I have had no issues at all ( some acne here and there).. But I feel it will work more amazing on dry skin beauties… So why not give it a try???

 

L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick Tangerine Sonate-

This liquid lipstick comes in a gold packaging which looks very classy.. The applicator is smooth , so its easy to apply this shade.. Its a shade which is dark  orange in colour… The shade glides on the lips easily, it has a medium coverage and gives an amazing shine on the lips.. Well, its an amazing shade, but would like to try other shades from this range too…

COLORBAR LIPSTICK-SHADE PEACH CRUSH

2 Jun

Hello everyone,

Today I am writing a review on one of my favourite lipsticks. It is a cute coral shade..well nowadays I am in love with coral shades and this is one of them. Colorbar lipstick in Peach crush is a coral shade and is matte in texture.

I got this lipstick from Beauty Centre and it was priced at Rs 230/- over there. The packaging is cute and can be taken anywhere. The shade of the lipstick is a bit orange colour and will look good on all skin tones. I love lipsticks which are matte and so this can be easily applied too. It brightens up the face and one can create a look with bright lips and nude eyes with this,

Coming to the pigmentation, it is pigmented and with one swipe of color , it gives the effect. Personally I really love this lipstick because of it being reasonably priced and the staying power too. It stays for a long time on my lips.

Finally summing it up:

I love this lipstick..<3 . It can be worn on any occasion and casual wear too. For its price, pigmentation and staying power I will give this a full score on my list.

Enjoyyy
