Livon Hair Serum Review

16 Nov

Hello everyone,

Winters are here and so are our hair woes. I usually love winters but skin starts getting dry and hair needs pampering all the time too. So today I will be talking about this product which I have been using daily since weeks. Of course we all have used this product someday, so I am here to share my review on this. I will be reviewing Livon Hair Serum.

Now we all have seen the Livon Ads on television or heard about it from friends or family. I always had the need to apply hair serums because of two reasons mainly which are dry hair and shine. So I started using this product weeks back and lets see how well did I like it.

About Livon Hair Serum:-

New Livon Serum is a hair essential for damage protection. It controls frizz, eases out tangles and reduces breakage to give you silky, shiny hair. Unlike the earlier Livon Silky Potion, New Livon Serum is designed to be so lightweight that you don’t feel it at all once applied. It has a mild fragrance which is inspired by fine fragrances.

My Review on Livon Hair Serum:

My hair tends to be dry in winters and oily in summers. The packaging is super cute. It comes in a transparent bottle with a pink flip cap. It is travel friendly and can be carried in the handbag easily. I like the transparent packaging as it is easy to keep a track on how much serum is remaining.

This serum is transparent and has a bit of thick consistency. You do not need a lot of product at all , just a bit according to your hair length and you good to go. Applying more of it might make your hair look a bit limp. I apply this on damp hair and then use a hair brush.

Now coming to the claims it makes, Yes it entangles my hair nicely ,gives the shine to them and makes it manageable. It controls frizz to an extent and so I like this product. This product is available online and in stores and is priced at Rs  115 for 50ml. It will take me 2 to 3 months to finish this serum as I don’t need a lot of quantity of it.

Livon Hair Serum is a good product and can be used whenever you plan to wash your hair and your hair will be good to go.

Let me know if you have used it before and how was ur experience with it??

Enjoyy,

Sonal.

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.

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,

Sonal.

So The Body Shop introduced a range of Fuji Green Tea. Now if you haven’t checked that range yet, I recommend you to go and check it when you can. Recently I bought some stuff from The Body Shop and restocked my essentials. Today I am going to review one of my latest essentials which is The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash.

My Review on  The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash:

To start with The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash comes in a light green transparent bottle which is super handy and travel friendly. As it is transparent , you can actually check how much product remains inside it.

It is a super cute bottle which can be stored anywhere you like.  Now as soon as you will open the cap, it smells so awesome, like a fragrance which is so refreshing and will rest your senses. The texture of this the body wash is liquid and transparent in colour.

IMG_86906-01

I like the effect it creates after applying it on my skin. It lathers really well. It creates a spa kind of environment and is apt for those hectic days of your life. This can be used on a regular basis and is not overpriced . In fact I got this from their online store with a 20% percent discount on it. So you can keep on checking their online store for great deals.

I usually use this body wash and their body lotion together. The body wash does make my skin softer and better. It is my favourite skincare essential at the moment.

In all, you can try this body wash and it does work great. I will repurchase this once it is over and would like to try their scrub too.

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.

Maybelline_.Berry_1jpg

Our exclusive formula moisturises lips for a full 8 hours.
Lips renewed in 1 week* (*Based on panelists’ self-evaluations)

How to use:

Maybelline_Berry_2

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,

My Review on this Stuff-

To start with, I have an acne-prone skin, I normally use The Body Shop Tea tree Face Wash as it suits my skin really well. But when I got my hands on this Garnier Pure White Complete Face Wash, I was very keen on trying it. It is basically a white and yellow tube which is very handy and easy to use. When I used this face wash for the first time, the moment I took it out from the tube it was a white coloured and creamy textured face wash. As it contains lemon essence in it, it definitely has a mild fragnance of it. The moment I washed my face with it , it gave an instant glow to my face and removed all the dirt easily. I have been using this product more than a week, and it does brightens up the skin well. I have been using it with Garnier White Complete Multi Action Fairness Cream and it works well together.

Overall, I really like this product and will recommend it too. In the next post , I will be posting the review of Garnier White Complete Multi Action Fairness Cream. So stay tuned for that…

MILANI BAKED BLUSH- LUMINOSO REVIEW

8 Oct

MILANI BAKED BLUSH- LUMINOSO

I have been shopping a lot recently .. I hauled from OrdermakeupUk which is a group on facebook , they basically get stuff that are not available in India..I hauled a lot of makeup stuff..One of them was this Milani product.

Introducing my new love- Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso.

Image

 Information from the Milani Website about this baked blush-

A luxurious powder blush that features a mélange infusion of colors baked on Italian terracotta tiles. Easy to use, sensorial in texture, the nuances of color become extraordinarily luminous.Silky smooth application leaves your face looking healthy and radiant all day.

Image

 

 

Price : $7.99

The baked blushes from Milani come in different shades and I chose to buy shade 05-Luminoso. The main reason I bought Luminoso. First because it is a dupe of NARS Orgasm and secondly its a product that has been praised a lot.
So as a beauty blogger, I always wanted to buy it.
Coming to the review, the packaging is nice and sturdy. The blush is a dupe of NARS Orgasm. It is a baked blush and not shimmery. I have a pale complexion and it looks perfect on my skin tone.
It blends very neatly with my skin tone and it gives a glow to my face.. I use this blush on a daily basis and it did not break me out( My skin type is combination acne prone).
It looks kind of peachy coral. It stays on my skin for 2 hours( my skin is very oily), it needs to be reapplied again and again.But that would not problem as it is compact and can be carried anywhere.

Image

 

About the swatch, my camera was not working properly and so could not capture the swatch properly, but will definitely update the swatch soon.

I recently bought SLeek Blush Rose Gold which is also a dupe of NARS Orgasm. Rose Gold is very shimmery where as Luminoso is not. But both the blushes can be worn even in the day or night look.
I have become a fan of Milani Luminoso, so I would also like to try the other Milani Baked Blushes.

I would rate this blush and would give 5/5 because of its texture and the way it blends.

Have you tried Milani Baked Blushes?? What are your favourite blushes??

Take care,
Sonal
