The packaging is similar to the blush pan with a magnifying mirror. It is a perfect travel size product and useful for touch-ups. The brow shades are intensely pigmented.

Tweeze the excess brows using the tweezer, apply the highlighter to the inner corners of the brow, sponge applicator can be used for blending, define the brows, fill and shape the brows with the slanted brush using the desired brow powder. The powder easily blends to give a natural and subtle look and stays for long hours. This kit is ideal for the makeup beginners.
Liner plus lipstick
Needs to be sharpened often
Art stick is more like a multifaceted lip pencil that works as a lip stick and a liner. The super buttery formula glides smoothly on the lips providing a creamy matte finish and instantly gives a plump look. These are available in eight different shades. It is enriched with emollients and shea butter to keep the lips hydrated and smooth. The art stick comes in a pencil form with a plastic black cap that is tightly secured. The product must be sharpened to get a pointed tip as a result there would be slight wastage of the product. It is easy to apply and gives a perfect coverage. The staying power is excellent and does not smudge or fades out. However the lip stick slightly transfers. Stay cautious while eating and drinking. One swipe is pretty enough as these are richly pigmented pencils and gives an amazing opaque finish to the lips

Brightens the under-eye area
Prior to this, I have tried many products to reduce my dark circles. My friend suggested me Clinique under eye cream which worked out wonders. It helped me in minimizing the visibility of my dark circles. It is enriched with caffeine and green tea extracts that soothes the delicate skin. Phytosphingosine works as an anti-inflammatory under eye area. This cream helps in maintaining the moisture balance and strengthens the skin. It comes in a tube packaging with a silver lid and a metal applicator that has a flat tip that massages and stimulates the circulation reducing the puffiness, darkness, and fluids under eye area.

While using this cream, I skip applying the concealer. The cream is weightless and runny. It requires less amount of product to nourish and hydrate around my eyes. I highly recommend this eye cream for those who are worrying with their noticeable dark circles.

True to color
Basically, I am a huge fan of lip sticks. My lips tend to dry sometimes and fade out the lipstick with a patchy look. Nyx lip primer made the application of the lipstick smoother and even. The texture of the lip primer is so velvet soft. It prepares the lips for perfect application of the lipstick. It regulates the lip colour from fading and flaking off. The packaging of the lip primer is similar to the lip crayon with a retractable black pencil pack and a transparent cap. It is travel friendly and can be easily applied in the nook end corners of the lips. The lip primer comes in two shades- nude and deep nude. This lip primer is more like a transparent lip balm and does not interfere the original shade of the lip stick. The creamy texture glides the primer on the lips without tugging in. It made my lipstick stay for long hours and did not make it look patchy.
Mac concealer brush is the best make up brush for blending the concealers. It is a flat brush with a pointed tip that helps in precise application. Mac is known for its quality make up products. The brush is made up of a wooden handle and nickel plated ferrules. The brush is hand sculpted and finest. The bristles are flexible and made by the synthetic fibers. The dimension of the brush gives a perfect and flauntless finish, concealing the imperfections of the skin. The tip of the bristles are slightly pointed at the tip so as to reach the curves and edges of the face. The brush glides the concealer very neatly on the skin and gives a well sculpted look to the face. I sometimes use this brush for applying foundation and eye shadows as it is a flat brush. The brush can be cleaned very easily and quickly without any fall outs. I recommend this cost effective 195 brush for its quality and multi utility features.
Controls melanin production
Fades dark spots and pigmentation

It gets absorbed into the skin easily. The packaging is a bit heavy as the cream comes in a see through glass jar which is not travel friendly. It’s a perfect cream for normal to dry skin. It gave my skin an instant brightening effect. I do not suggest this cream for oily skin type as it may break out on the skin. Overall, I recommend this cream for hydrated and healthy glowing skin and repurchase it.
Adds volume and length
Clinique High Impact Mascara is the best product to add volume and definition to the lashes. My eye lashes are long hence I rarely use mascaras. I purchased Clinique high impact mascara to create high definition to my eyes. I used it with a single coat that was pretty enough to give a dramatic look to my eyes. It comes in two shades. One is brown and the other is black. It comes with a good brush that it applies mascara perfectly to the upper and lower lashes too. This mascara does not become clumsy or flakes off. It enhanced the beauty and volume of my eye lashes after application. It made my lashes to look fuller and tamed. It is very easy to apply and remove the mascara by washing it off. The mascara has perfect consistency but it is not a water proof product. I liked this product as it tames each and every individual hair giving a dramatic and subtle look.
Nyx Professionals is a leading brand that offers professional make up and beauty products that are cruelty free. I like to use colour eyeliner. Now, it was a fun to try colour mascara. Nyx has launched eight shades. The coloured mascaras are pretty good. It gives you a bright pop up colour. The packaging comes similar to the other mascaras. The package colour matches the mascara shade. The formulation of the product is intensely pigmented with slightly runny texture. It is smudge proof, water proof and flake free and perfect for any special occasion. Though it does not add much volume and length to the eyelashes, it gives a beautiful party look. It is very easy to apply. All we need to do is to just wiggle the wand from the roots to the tips of the eye lashes. It can be removed using a makeup remover. I recommend this colour mascara for vibrant colour makeup lovers.

Small amount of product is sufficient for daytime wear. It looked beautiful with a natural finish and glowy skin. I would consider this as a game-changer in my makeup regime.
My friend gifted me Nyx cosmic metals lip cream shade retro harmony which is a nude shade. I liked the lip cream as it is intense, multidimensional and glossy. The creamy texture glides the lip cream smoothly and comfortably on the lips. It created a dazzling metallic to pearly finish with a lustrous colour on my lips. The lip cream is highly pigmented and shimmery. The packaging comes in a non- transparent tube with a black cap which is spill proof and very much travel friendly. The color of the tube is similar to the shade of the lip cream. The lip cream has a wand like applicator. Wide range of shades are available in lip cream, out of them few are perfectly matching the Indian skin tone. It is easy to apply the cosmic metals lip cream. Start right from the center of the lips and sweep outwards to the end of the lip line. The product does not bleed or transfer but after removing the lip cream, it leaves the traces and residues of the color and shimmers on the lips. The cosmic lip cream gives a moisturizing, hydrating and plumping effect on my lips without break out and does not get into the fine lines. However, be careful while eating and drinking. It is great for festivals and other occasions. Recommended for those who like shimmery or metallic finish on the lips.
This is an amazing instant perfecting product. It is a water-resistant, lightweight makeup for legs. My legs have some visible skin imperfections, spots, and varicose veins. Now I found a makeup for legs that could hide my skin imperfections, stretchmark, and dark knees. The weightless tinted makeup formula is infused with palmaria extract and vitamin K that helps to cover spots, spider veins and stretch marks on the skin. The best part of this product is that it is water-resistant, non-sticky, does not transfer even when rubbed off on clothes and long-lasting. It gives a flawless-looking healthy and firm legs. The packaging of the airbrush legs is like a spray bottle and the product comes in the form of mist.

This product is very easy and convenient to use. Shake and spray the product on the hands and apply it on the legs. Blend it evenly. I suggest not spraying the product directly on the legs as it gives a very uneven and patchy finish. Give some time for the spray to settle down on the skin. It can be removed very easily by using a wet cloth or wash it directly with soap and water. This product is affordable and cost-effective. I recommend this product for those who like a perfect tan look.
I like Loreal Paris colour riche moist matte lipstick as the shades look really beautiful on my lips and gives total velvety soft creamy matte finish. The unique formulation contains jojoba oil that moisturizes the lips and gives an intense matte effect. It is enriched with omega 3 oil and vitamin E which gives hydration to the lips. After application it gives shine free and complete matte lips. There are wide variants of shades that match all skin types. These lipsticks are richly pigmented with vibrant colour that glides very smoothly without tugging on the lips. It has got super long lasting power. However, after 4 hrs of application, the lipstick faded slowly. Touch ups are needed after a meal or drink. Darker shades require a lip liner as they were bleeding and smudging sometimes later and accentuate patchiness. The packaging is luxurious and sturdy. It is travel friendly. It has extreme colour payoff in just one swipe. The lipstick gives brilliant moisture and adds luxurious color to the lips. The colors were so flattering and gorgeous. I suggest exfoliating the lips and then use as it to avoid dryness and patchiness. If a thick layer of lipstick is applied, it settles into fine lines on the lips. Due to its creamy texture, the lipstick sometimes tends to break. My lipstick broke and I had to fix it and store it in refrigerator. Overall, it is a must buy for those who like to try bold colors.
I am a huge fan of facial serums. I recently bought Lotus professional serum. PhytoRx is whitening and brightening serum and the formulation has amla berry that acts as skin lightening agent. Lychee works as anti-oxidant, escalates moisture giving healthy looking skin. Punarvana Root aids in lightening and evens skin tone. The serum comes in a translucent glass bottle with a white cap and a dropper that dispenses required amount of product. The consistency of the serum is perfect neither thick nor runny. It feels weight less on the skin and gets absorbed very quickly and comfortably. The serum fragrance is very pleasant and smells lychee and amla berries that awaken the senses. However, the fragrance does not long lasts on the skin and fades away after sometime. This PhytoRx serum gives an instant glow for a fresh and healthy looking skin. It adds hydration and makes the skin much smoother and brighter. This serum is good for daily use. It works out on the tan and removes it to some extent and fades the dark spots on the skin. However, I feel it is slightly heavier on oily skin. Overall, it gives a subtle glow and brightness to the skin but not whitening effect.
I have been trying many hair care products and DIY at home to get rid of my frizzy hair and control hair fall. Since ages, coconut milk was considered beneficial for restoring dry, damaged and brittle hair. It contains all essential nutrients and anti-oxidants that boosts the hair follicles and promote hair growth. Earlier I was using coconut milk as a hair mask by massaging it to my hair to get tangle free and conditioned hair. Following coconut milk home remedy for hair was a bit messy and tedious. Thanks to Ogx for creating an effective hair care conditioner. The formulation of Ogx conditioner has a unique blend of coconut milk and egg white protein that promotes natural strength and elasticity to the hair. It is sulphates and parabens free. Fragrance of this product is heavenly. I love its smell. The consistency of the conditioner is thick, creamy and hydrating foam that detangles the hair. The hair feels conditioned and moisturized. The conditioner packaging is eco-friendly and recycled. The product comes in a white sturdy plastic bottle with a golden flip open top. After shampooing your hair apply this conditioner from the tip of the hairs and detangle it. This leaves your hair super soft, glowing and clean with scented fragrance. It improves the hair texture and quality after prolonged use and makes hair frizz free and controls the hair fall.

Though the lipsticks are pricey, I like them for its colour intensity and longevity. This colour rocker lipstick is suitable for festivals or occasions but certainly not for daily use. Those who dare bold look can give a try.

I love to use a black eyeliner and kohl for daily wear. Curiously, I bought a Nyx white liquid liner. I found it is a perfect liquid eyeliner for brighter looking eyes. This is a pigmented white colour which is opaque. It is water resistant and can be used on both lash and waterline. This pencil comes with perfect brush for a precise application. The creamy smooth texture of the liquid liner glides on the water and lash line and dries into matte finish. With one swipe, it gives an intense colour as it is super pigmented and gives a graphic look to the eyes and helps the eyes to look wide open and look much bigger. Drawback of Nyx white liquid liner is that it gets cracked flaked and fades away once the product dries off after applied on the lash line. Affordable product but not so easy to use, unless you certainly know how to use it.

Using a correct shade of bronzing powder helps in giving a golden undertone to our complexion. This product is reliable as it doesn’t cause break outs.

Ponds cold cream is the one of the moisturisers, I had used from my childhood to overcome the winter dryness. It moisturizes the rough and dry skin and maintains skin hydration. This cream is a boon for those who have extremely dry skin. The formulation has soya protein, glycerin, sun flower oil and skin lipids that nourish the skin and makes it soft and supple. Glycerin repairs dryness, mineral oil and silicone conditioners protect the skin from winter harshness. Although, this product has been in the market since ages, its art of beauty and quality has changed. The packaging comes in a white round pot with a white screw cap.

I am a homemaker and cannot groom my nails regularly. My hands would be wet constantly in my daily chores. It becomes nasty, when I wear a nail polish that does not last long giving a chipped or peeled look. I bought Sally Hansen miracle gel nail polish after reading positive reviews on this product. It is easy to paint on the properly grown nails which looks neat and tidy after application. It lasts long up to 4-5 days without chipping which is great at least for me whereas the other nail polish lasts only 1-2 days. I am very happy with this miracle gel nail polish. My nails are brittle and prone to chipping. But this polish itself stays on pretty well. The nail colours are highly pigmented and the packaging is like a routine nail polish with a thick brush that helps us with a very easy application. It lasts longer than any other brand nail polish. It dries hard and looks super shiny. After application, it looked beautiful on my nails like I did a manicure from the salon. There are wide variants of shade available which give glossy finish. It dries in minutes after application by capturing light in UV lamp and hardens the gel. I suggest using two coats of perfectly dried gel nail polish and one top coat on the nails would create a salon finish. I would highly recommend this product as it is chip free or peel free nail colour.
MAC lipsticks are my favourite, especially the frost one. The application of this lipstick on the lips is very easy and uncomplicated. The frost lipstick fragrance smells like vanilla and is pleasant. The packaging comes in a jet black case which looks classy. MAC has wide range of shades.

It conditions the lips and makes them fuller. The staying power is pretty well and later fades out evenly without looking messy. It slightly leaves behind the traces of the colour on the lips after fading out or removing it by you. I suggest using a cleansing milk to remove it properly. It does not make the lips dry. It is very easy to wear and remove the frost lipsticks. It stays even after a light meal and requires a touch up whenever it fades away. I recommend this product, as it can be a good choice of purchase.
MAC 190 brush is the best foundation brush and my all-time favourite brush which does multi-functional activities in my routine makeup regime. I like mac 190 brush as it is a large round brush used for lightweight application and blending powders or pigments. It works great with mineralize products. This is the ideal brush for both cream and liquid foundations. The foundation brush is designed to create a smooth, even and flawless finish without streaks or patches. The brush works pretty well for applying foundation as well as contouring. It applies foundation so perfectly that all the fine lines and open pores disappear. MAC 190 brush blends the product into the skin really well without patchy look and gives a natural makeup finish. This is a 100% synthetic brushes using latest fibre technology. The bristles are dense and smooth that spreads the product evenly on the face. It comes in a good quality. However, it is not that easy to clean the brush. Though I clean it after every use, it leaves the residues of the foundation on the bristles. So we have to make an effort to clean the brush. The best part of the brush is that even after washing it, the bristles are still soft, smooth and does not get damaged. It adds value to the money though it is expensive. I strongly recommend this brush for a flawless makeup.

The cream tube is white and comes with a tight cap. It is very much travel friendly. Cream texture is light and non-greasy which gets absorbed very quickly into the skin keeping the face hydrated. This fairness cream is ideal for combination or oily skin. Not recommended for those with dry skin as it makes their skin much drier. The cream is very much pocket friendly and a small amount of the product is sufficient for whole face and neck. Fragrance of the cream is mild. After application, it gives a matte finish to the skin. It also controls oil and does not melt on the face resulting in fresh and healthy look for long period of time. I sometimes apply it all alone for no makeup look. It can also be used as a makeup base. The cream may not act completely on the dark spots, pigmentation and blemishes on the skin but lightens the skin tone on prolonged use. Can give a try.
Dabur Gulabari, I know this product right from my teens. The goodness of the rose essence is essential for the daily skincare regime. It is multifaceted water that acts as cleanser, toner and moisturizer for all skin types. It helps in lightening the skin tone, helps soothing and calming down stretchy skin on a stressful day. This rose water goes alone pretty well or complements with any face pack. The packaging of gulabari comes in a transparent bottle with a pink flip open top. The fragrance smells like rose. I use rose water in many ways for my skincare and hair care routine. I use it as a face mist for an instant clean and glowy skin. Rose water in Fuller Earth is a perfect face pack for improving skin elasticity. During winters, I use gulabari by complementing it with glycerin and few drops of lemon for hydrating and moisturizing effect on the skin and enhance the natural glow. Rose water has amazing properties of anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, Astringent, minerals that help in giving fresh and radiant skin. I substitute my setting spray with gulabari for glowy and dewy make up look. It can be also used as make up remover by adding a few drops of coconut oil to it. Cotton pads dipped in cool rose water and dabbing on the eyes helps in reducing dark circles, redness and puffiness of the eyes. For my hair care, I mix glycerin to rose water and apply it to the scalp for silky and shiny hair or add a cup of gulabari to the bathing water for a divine bath. However, this product also has some cons as it contains chemicals like parabens, propylene glycol that is harmful in long term usage. In such cases if you are particular in not using chemical based rose water, I suggest you to DIY rose water at home.
Previously, I used few argan oil based products for my hair care and skin care routine. Ogx Moroccan Argan oil Conditioner is one of the best conditioners that I have ever used. It has an exotic and precious blend of argan oil that penetrates deep into the shaft of the hair and scalp. It helps in moisturizing, restoring shine and softness by strengthening the hair. It protects the hair from sun damage and UV rays. I like this product because the argan oil has the properties of nourishing the hair and protect it from the everyday damage caused by sunlight and other pollutants. It also reduces the hair breakage and split ends, keeping the scalp healthy. It prevents hair loss and results thicker and fuller hair. The formulation has natural vitamin E and anti-oxidants that renews the hair cell structure. It is free from sulphats and parabens. The package of the conditioner comes in blue bottle with a flip top that is ecofriendly and can be recycled. It is travel friendly too. The consistency of the conditioner is soft and thick with mild fragrance that glides on the wet hair easily. I personally use Organix argan shampoo and apply ogx conditioner generously to the hair. After applying the conditioner for the first time, I felt my hair was super soft and smooth, well behaved and highly conditioned. I was satisfied with this product as it is cost effective and made my hair smooth and manageable. This conditioner is ideal for coloured hair or a chemically treated hair. I recommend this conditioner for those who have curly and frizzy hair.
MAC extra dimension skinfinish is a highlighter that adds a perfect glow to the skin. Its liquid powdery form is specifically designed to sculpt and highlight the high points of the face. The highlighter lasts long and staying power is pretty well. The product packaging comes with a black colored compact like bottom with a transparent lid for the highlighter shade visibility. The highlighter has a textured design throughout the powder pan. The texture is soft and buttery with gold shimmers that are finely milled and gives a perfect pink undertone that looks flattering. The highlighter is easily blendable and does not look patchy and uneven. It does not break out on the skin. I use it as a multipurpose powder for eyes, lips, high points of the face for sheer glittery effect. One swipe of the highlighter gives a natural glow and intensified look. You do not need much product for application as it is richly pigmented. The product is easily picked up by the powder brush, tap the excess and swipe on the required areas for a well- defined and sculpted look. The best part of this highlighter is that it does not emphasise the skin texture as much as the other highlighters do. It is cost effective and a must try highlighter.
I like Philips hair dryer as these are the best hair styling tool which is helpful in drying the hair quickly. It locks the moisture of the hair which does not make the hair frizzy and tangled. The hair dryer is compact in size, lightweight, portable, travel friendly and easy to handle. It has a good shape and design. Affordable hair dryer that does its job perfectly. This product comes with a temperature setting that provides optimal hair drying without damaging the hair. Usage of hair dryer pulls out the moisturizers from the hair that leads to hair dryness, breakage, split ends. But this dryer gives a volumous hair after drying. However, it is not suitable for professional hairstyling. It has an enhanced diffuser that blows air into the hair from 360 degrees. This results an evenly produced heat to dry your hair instantly and protects the hair from overheating. One drawback is that it is not cordless. It has a long power cord and two modes to control speed. I suggest using a serum or conditioner on wet hair and then using the hair dryer to avoid split ends and minimize the hair damage. Though the conventional method of drying hair is the best way, I recommend this product as it does an optimal hair drying and cost effective.
MAC is a kohl kajal available in wide variety of shades. The soft and creamy kohl helps us to define and shade the eyes to give a smoky and dramatic effect. The pencil texture is soft, smooth and creamy that gives a pearly or matte finish to the eyes. This kohl is opthalmologically tested and can be safely used by the contact lens wearers. It does not irritate the eyes. The eye pencil is a normal wooden pencil with a plastic cap that can be sharpened with a normal pencil sharpener. But this kind of kohl gets wasted due to frequent sharping. It is extremely easy to apply the eye pencil on the waterline. Ensure that the waterline is not oily which creates break out. At least 2-3 strokes of the kohl give an obvious look to the eyes. Apply the kohl directly on the waterline. It can be used as eyeliner as well as eye shade. The longevity when used as eyeliner is more than used as a kajal on bottom lash line. This product has partially fulfilled the claim as it smudges after 2-3 hrs and later it starts fading and need a reapplication. The price of the product is little expensive. I recommend this product for its deep pigmentation that gives a dramatic effect.
A good primer gives a perfect makeup finish. The primer is the base of the makeup which makes the skin smoother. Revlon photoready perfecting primer is my favourite product as it is a weightless, light pink tinted primer that smoothens and softens the skin by reducing the pore size, spots and fine lines. It perfectly blends and diffuses the light to minimize the visibility of flaws and skin imperfections in any light giving a picture perfect skin. Its formula is oil free, talc free and paraben free. The primer goes pretty good alone or complements with a foundation. The packaging is glass bottle with a pump dispenser and click top on it. The texture of the product is runny and spreads evenly on the skin. It has a mild fragrance. No artificial fragrance is added. The product helps the foundation to glide on the skin super quickly and blends to give a matte finish to the skin. This primer increases the foundation’s longevity even if the skin type is oily. The best part of the primer is that a small amount about 2 pumps of the product is pretty much sufficient for application on face and neck. This primer texture is slightly shimmery and apparently gives a healthy and glowing skin. Perfecting primer goes well with all skin types. It is ideal to apply primer on moisturized skin for long lasting effect. I like this primer as it combats with the darkness and dullness of the skin and gives a luminating and hydrating finish to the skin. It is cost effective and perfect primer for the makeup vanity.
I have been searching for a herbal kajal from long time and purchased Elle 18 kajal. I am using it from 2 months. The outer appearance is a bullet shaped packaging and the kajal is conical in shape with twistable stick. It is enriched with almond oil and the fragrance smells like camphor seems to be heavenly. It does not irritate the eyes as it contains natural ingredients hence can be used on children. It is opthalmologically tested and can be used prior to wearing contact lenses. The price of the product is affordable. It is cost effective. It is available for half the price of a pencil kajal. The quantity of the product lasts long. Its application is smooth and glides on the waterline. One stroke of the kajal gives an intense black and dramatic finish. It defines the structure of an eye. However it lasts for 3-4 hours and later smudges or fades away. We can control the precise application till the kajal is conical. It is difficult to draw a line precisely after a point of time as the stick gets flattened gradually by using it. However you can give a try by purchasing this product as it adds value to the money.
For me lipstick is my make up essential. I bought a brand new Nyx butter lipstick. The product gives an ultra creamy, soft, silky smooth and pigmented finish. Nyx professional butter lipsticks have a wide range of shades in full, medium and sheer coverage. Though the product is not budget friendly, it gives intense coverage in buttery texture. It lasts long and pamper the lips plumpy and hydrating. However it is not transfer proof. The product does not dry the lips or becomes patchy. The packaging comes in the similar colour to that of the lipstick shade with a transparent top in between for visibility. These are perfect for a make up routine.
Bronzing powder warms up the skin with a sheer, natural looking tan effect. I like MAC Bronzing powder because the texture is so soft and smooth. It does not take much product if our skin got sun tan. It comes in different shades matching all skin types and skin tones. This product is lasting upto 6 hours which was fairly enough. It gives a decent colour for contouring. It can be applied evenly however not that easy to blend. It help in defining a chubby face. It is a complimentary to the everyone’s facial structure. After application, it is shiny, impressive and a kind of sun-kissed look that is very much attractive. It is a must have product in the make-up vanity.
In summers, the skin gets tan badly and becomes darker than the true shade. Though I used a sunscreen, it did not stop my skin from sun damage. To get rid of the sun tan and damage, I got O3+ D Tan Pack. The pack gives an instant detan bright skin. It is suitable for all skin types. For those who have sensitive skin, do a patch test before using the product. This pack is ideal for those who do not like to bleach. Its formulation is paraben free and infused with natural ingredients like mint and eucalyptus oil that soothes and calms down the skin. And stone crop helps to reduce the pigmentation and lightens the complexion of the skin. It also nourishes and moisturizes the skin. The packaging comes in a bulky white tub which is not travel friendly. The fragrance is minty smell which is refreshing. The texture of the cream mask is weightless and satin silky that helps the cream to glide smoothly on the skin. It is very easy to use and gives a salon effect at home. Apply a thin layer of the D Tan pack on the face, neck and hands. It is not a fairness product to enhance the skin tone. It helps the skin to get rid of the tan and sun damage. Let the mask on the skin for 4-5 minutes. After the application, it slightly irritates the skin for initial minutes as it contains cloves and camphor oil and subsides in some time. Wipe it off with a wet towel gently. The skin looks soft, supple, bright and clear instantly. The result would be satisfying. This product is cost effective with a whole lot of quantity which would be sufficient for long period of time. I strongly recommend this D Tan pack and I would repurchase it too.
Loreal true match powder is a pressed compact powder that controls the oil and shine on the skin. I love this compact powder for its super blending power and gives a natural matte finish as if it is a no makeup look. It does not look cakey or patchy and extensively blends for giving a medium to full coverage. It is more like a setting powder. The powder is formulated by vitamin B, vitamin E and glycerin to keep the skin healthy and vibrant. It also contains pearl pigments that enhance the skin tone. It glides smoothly on the skin and works well. It conceals the dark spots and dark circles effectively and gives even finish. As the powder does not contain oils, it does not clog the skin pores and keep the skin looking fresh and healthy. The set back of this pressed compact powder is that it is not long lasting and creases after 6-8 hrs. If the climate is hot and humid, it would require frequent touch up. Otherwise the powder matches with all skin tones and texture for a flawless look. There are wide ranges of shades that are suitable for all skin types. The compact powder perfectly complements with any foundation and concealer. The packaging is similar to any other pressed powder and comes with a transparent lid. Underneath the powder pan, there is a mirror and a sponge. I suggest using a powder brush rather than a sponge for full and even coverage. For me, it went well with a daily wear cream and applying this compact powder on top of it and you are ready for the day. You can try if you didn’t.
I love Maybelline for its wide range of makeup products and pocket friendly. I have purchased Maybelline colour sensational lipstick. These are the creamy lipsticks with vibrant colors in nude, pink, plum, coral and red shades. It has very rich pigmentation that shows intense colour in one swipe. The package of the lipstick is a twistable stick. They are travel friendly and safe. It has vibrant appearance with a click top. The texture of the lipstick is so creamy and smooth that complements with precious oil rosa canina, jojoba oil and honey nectar which moisturize the lips and keeps them hydrated throughout the day. The lipstick glides smoothly on the lips and gives velvet soft creamy matt finish. This does not dry out the lips. All shades have color pay off and give an even coverage without patchiness. However, staying power could have been much better for these lipsticks as they stay up to not more than 4-5 hrs. And the color residues remain on the lip even it wears off. Ensure to use a good make up remover. These lipsticks are slightly transferrable because of their creamy texture. As such for the quality of the lipstick, it adds good value for money. The color sensational lipsticks are ideal for those who are looking for daily wear matt finish.
I use Garnier BB Cream as it is an all in one cream for skin care and make up regime. It helped my skin glow bright. The BB cream has instantly beautified my skin and gave a flauntless finish. It has a weightless and convenient texture that blends into the skin perfectly. It is a beauty benefit cream and a miracle skin perfector. The product packaging is very similar to the other BB Creams. It comes in a tube pack with a small opening that avoids wastage of the product and is travel friendly. The fragrance of the cream is heavenly. The BB cream is formulated with minerals, vitamins C and almond extracts that moisturizes, brightens and gives a glow and sheer finish to the skin. It hides the fine lines and skin imperfections and makes the skin visibly clean, clear, perfect and evenly toned. The best part of the BB cream is that it contains SPF 24 that protects the skin from sunlight, UVA and UVB. This BB cream is dermatologically tested and clinically proven to lighten the skin complexion and reduces the fine line, dark spots. It also conditions and revitalizes the skin for perfection. The texture of the cream is thin consistency and slight watery that blends easily gets absorbed into the skin. Regular usage can regenerate the skin. This BB ream is more like a tinted moisturizer that helps to skip the foundation and concealer steps in the makeup regime. I feel Garnier BB cream is the best affordable cream for daily wear.
Activated charcoal products are very much popular these days. It comes in the form of face wash, powder mask, peel off mask, and cream mask. Healthvit activated charcoal purifying peel off Mask is a cleansing face mask that revitalizes the skin. The formulation has activated charcoal particles that act like a magnet to pulls out the impurities, black heads, white heads, dust and dirt from the skin. It is a deep cleansing and purifying process for the skin, specially the nose and chin area by removing black and white heads. Its texture is soft and runny, jet shiny black color. Its fragrance is medicinal. Peeling off the activated charcoal mask is really tedious and painful. It would not get peeled off at a single stretch. It comes out bits and pieces. Ensure a thin layer of mask is not applied as the peeling would be very difficult and hurting. Be cautious if you would have more facial hair. Your facial hairs get waxed during this process. The packaging of the product is like a tube and spill proof. As the mask texture is runny, to avoid the fuss free application, take a glass bowl and pour the required amount of the product into it. Apply it onto the face with the help of a brush .A thick layer of charcoal mask must be applied. Stay for 20-30 mins and peel it off gently. You can feel the tightening of the mask when it dries up. Start peeling it from the forehead. It looks great after peeling the mask. Your skin feels soft, smooth, bright and glowy. Also it gives a tightening effect to the face and detoxifies the skin. The peel off mask completely cleans the clogged pores. It might hurt and cause redness to the skin which would subside within some time. I suggest applying a toner or rose water after peeling the charcoal mask to shrink the open pores. This product is cost effective and can give a try.
One of my close friends was facing the problem of open pores in the cheek area around the nose. Her skin type was oily that usually melts the makeup within no time. Randomly I searched for a product and picked Nyx Make up pore filler for her after viewing some positive reviews . It is a weight less and non greasy primer. The product is enriched with Vitamin-E which enhances and nourishes all skin types. The product packaging comes in a simple and sleek travel friendly tube. It is designed in such a way that after its application it tends to fill the open pores and reduces its visibility. It would be an ideal base for any make up type whether it is heavy, minimal or no make up look. However, it lasts for 5-6 hours and later the face becomes greasy. Best part is that the make up does not becomes patchy as the primer does not contain talc or any other oils. It helps in fixing the make up for maximum time. It is just to cleanse and hydrate the skin and apply Nyx professional Make up pore filler and go with your favourite foundation, bb cream, compact and blush and experience the flauntless and long lasting make up concealing the open pores. My friend is very much satiated with the product performance. It does what it claims.
This is the best brand for nail polish strips. Personally I like them because they are quick and instant. Need not wait till the nail enamel dries off. These are easy nail art strips that are long lasting and fits all the nail size. It gives a salon effect and looks professional. Sally Hansen provides a wide range of manicure and pedicure essentials that are cost effective hence the nail strips are budget friendly and 16 strips are pretty sufficient for more than a single use. All we need to do is to clean the nails using a nail polish remover, slightly push the cuticle and match the nail art strip with that of the nail size. Peel the strip and stick it all around the nail from the top of the cuticle line. Ensure it cover the entire nail and then stick it .File off the excess and wear any translucent or glitter polish as a top coat to enhance the beauty of the nail art. It is also easy to remove by using nail polish remover. This brand has come out with wide variants in its design and colour. They also provide animal instinct patterns. These strips are exemplary for those who are lethargic to wear a nail art.
Himalaya Acne-n- pimple is an appropriate cream for the ones who face pimple and acne problem at the early stage. This product contains all herbal ingredients that have healing properties. I had very few pimples on my face then I started using this product. As it was at the starting stages, the cream worked effectively after 2-3 uses. It treated the pimple redness and eruptions. Aloevera is effectively used for its hydrating and healing properties. Silk cotton extract works as an astringent .Alum and lentils work as antiseptic and anti-inflammatory helping in reduction of painful acne. Chaste tree extracts helps in treating infection. It usually does not cause skin irritation as it is prepared from natural ingredients however patch test is recommended. This product may not reduce the dark spots but can treat the acne marks.

This product can be either used for contouring or bronzing to obtain a well sculpted and defined face. After application, it gives a matt look to the face and does not contain glitters hence ideal for daily make up routine.

Nyx bronzer provides nourishment to the skin as it contains natural extracts of chamomile green tea and ginseng root. It is perfect for a healthy and good looking skin.
I am a huge fan of shower gels. I purchased Neutrogena Rainbath Refreshing Shower and Bath Gel and experienced a rejuvenated bath. This shower gel cleanses, softens and nourishes my skin and left behind with super conditioned and renewed skin. The amazing fragrance of fruit, spices and herbs uplifts your body and mood. A mild fragrance lingers on your body after a shower gel bath and it gave me a soothing effect at the end of a tiresome day. I feel this shower gel is ideal for winter or cold season as this gives a moisturizing effect without wearing off the natural oils from the skin. However, I have to moisturize after the shower bath for not leaving the skin dry. I liked the packaging of the product. It is sleek and luxurious, transparent bottle with a pump dispenser and a required amount can be squeezed out avoiding the product wastage but it is not travel friendly which has no proper lock system. The shower gel is runny in consistency and really foamy when I used loofah. That is the right way to use a shower gel, I feel. It washes the impurities and grime very easily without leaving any residues. After a wash, it makes my skin feel fresh without making my skin squeezy and dry. I truly recommend this shower gel.
O3+ Whitening Facial Kit helped me in rejuvenating my skin. It nourished and lighted my skin tone. I could feel my skin super soft, supple, radiant and glossy. It can be used on skin with troubles like blemishes, pigmentation and dark patches. It is comfortable on hyper sensitive skin too. The kit comes in five steps of facial. We get an O3+ whitening cleansing foam in this kit. It should be massaged for about 2-3 mins and cleanse. Toner provided in this is to be sprayed on the face and dab it gently. Massage for 10-15 mins with the cream c. It works on fine lines upon massaging with required strokes. To prepare the skin, apply the whitening mask for 10 mins. Wash it off once dried. The final step is to repair the skin with the whitening serum. Dab it all around the face and neck for 2-3 mins and you can see the skin clean, hydrated and glossy. For me it worked on the uneven skin tone on my face after a prolonged use. Fragrance is amazing. Though the product is expensive, one pack is sufficient for 4-5 uses. Adds value for money. Over all, this kit is an invigorating facial regime. Highly recommended for those who cannot spare time for facial sessions at beauty salon.
I wonder why I come back to Colossal Mascara even after trying many other mascara brands. Yes, it is my first brand I used in my starting days of makeup. I fell in love it. This mascara gives an intense volume and dramatic finish to my eyelashes. Collagen formula pumps lashes one by one and curls them. It is smudge proof and water resistant. The product comes in an attractive yellow colour opaque packaging which is travel friendly. The consistency of the mascara is neither runny nor sticky. It comes with an applicator inside that is straight and the bristles are criss- cross. This made easy for me to swipe mascara even on fine lashes. However, the size of the applicator is big that makes me uncomfortable to curl the bottom lash line. Anyways, my lashes are thick and long. One swipe of volume express mascara is effective. Once I splashed water on my face not remembering that I wore mascara, it stunned me by not smudging under my eyes but shelf life of mascara is not so long, hence should be used as early as possible because my mascara dried up less than two months. The product is very easy to wear off from the lashes by using water or oil. Good product for the ones who wear contact lens as it is opthalmologically tested. It is price effective. I would definitely recommend this mascara.
Insta glow and gold bleach is instant DIY home based bleach with goodness of gold oxide. This brand is well known for a wide range of skincare, hair care, body care and wellness products. VLCC is one of my favourite brands for facial and bleach kit. Previously, I used some of the skin care products of this brand. My skin got tan when I came back from summer vacation. So, I used this bleach cream on my face, neck and hands. Tan got gradually reduced after usages. It also lightened my facial hair. This bleach gives less burning sensation when compared to the other brands. The bleach kit contains one bleach jar, one activator, one sachet of each pre and post bleach creams with a spatula. First time users kindly go through the instruction manual thoroughly and do a patch test before starting the bleach process as it sometimes causes irritation if your skin is hyper sensitive. I prepared my skin before the bleach process by cleansing it then applied the pre bleach cream and massage it for few mins till it got absorbed. I took 10 gms of bleach and added 1 gm of activator powder which is sufficient for one use. Mix them in the bowl, using a spatula apply it all over the face and neck without touching the eyebrows and hair. After 15 mins, I washed the bleach off the skin and pat it dry and then applied the post bleach cream on the bleached area. It is a transparent gel and gave a soothing sensation to my skin. After 5 mins gently massage till its absorbed into the skin. Post bleach my skin looked bright and glowing with an instant effect. It lightened the uneven skin tone. My mother also used it and she was happy with the result. It worked on my skin and recommends trying this gold glow bleach cream.
I love the MAC Lip Glass Gloss as it is not too sticky and is very much comfortable to wear. It is so shiny and shimmery that it gives a glass effect to my lips. It comes in a glass tube with a wand in it. The applicator has spongy tip that swipes the gloss easily on the lips even if a lip liner is not applied. The lip glass gloss is very travel friendly. I tried many lip glosses before that have dried up very quickly on my lips and looked patchy. But this gloss is not like them. It stayed super hydrated on my lips for long period of time. It’s only the consistency of the gloss makes it to last long. The gloss smells a candy fragrance. It comes in wide variety of shades and suitable for all skin tones. The lip glass gloss can be used on its own or can be mixed with any matt lip stick shade for the lipstick to give a glossy and shimmery finish. I suggest applying the lipstick and dab the lip glass gloss on the center of the lips to add a plump effect to the lips. It also helps in softening the lips like that a lip balm does. The price of the product is little high but worthy. It did not disappoint me. I recommend this product to everyone as it is a must in the makeup vanity.
Mine are very dry lips for which I do not use any matt lipsticks or crayons. But for the first time I bought Faces ultimate pro matt lip crayon. I really like the texture of the lip crayon and are richly pigmented. It is super soft and creamy hence evenly applied. I got a peachy nude shade that suits light to medium skin tone. It so smooth and satin silky to apply. It gave my lips a velvet matt finish. The formula is creamy and keeps my lips moisturized and hydrated. Faces lip shades gives you a perfect look for any occasion. The staying power is so long. Faces provide best shade ranges in nude, pink and reds. The nude shades goes pretty well for a daily or a casual wear. The crayon shade did not dry and look patchy on my lips. The ultimate pro lip crayons have both matt and shimmery shades. Most of the shades match all the skin types. However there are few setbacks with this product. The crayon stick is not twistable. It should be sharpened whenever the tip becomes blunt. We have to use only the lip crayon sharpener which we get along with the stick. No other sharpener fits the crayon size. While sharping, my crayon broke because of its soft texture. Sharping the lip crayon will waste the product. It is transferable, be cautious while drinking and eating. Anyways, I am happy by purchasing this product and can give a try for desired shades.
Previously, I used many facial oils and lightening serums as I have few acne spots and pimples on my skin. Most of the time a pimple might pop up on my face suddenly. My friend recommended me to use tea tree oil which is considered to be the best solution for acne and pimple troubled skin. I bought Body Shop tea tree oil. Though it is not cost effective, I thought it would definitely show a miraculous result. To my disappointment, it did nothing with my acne spots. It slightly lightened the spots and blemishes but did not really vanish them. It subsided the pimple from emerging on my face till the time I apply the oil directly on pimple prone area. As it is concentrated oil, I experienced a stingy sensation on the applied area which persisted for some time. My skin became dry when applied directly. I suggest this oil to be mixed with olive, argan oil, glycerin or a moisturizer to avoid a stingy sensation. The minty fragrance is a bit hard to smell. For hair, few drops of tea tree oil can be mixed with your routine hair oil or shampoo for therapeutic use. I had to wait anxiously to see the result.
Rica Brazilian Wax is a unique formula for strip less wax which is enriched with avocado butter oil and milk that helps in skin nourishment. It moisturizes and tones the skin. I recently switched to this product as it is pain less when compared to the conventional hard wax method. Advantage of this product is that its thin application effectively dries the wax quickly than the regular wax. It is ideal to use for facial hair as it pulls out the fine hair from the roots. It hurts less than regular wax. The packaging is similar to the regular wax with a metal container sealed with a lid. The usage of rica wax is easy and contrast to regular hard wax. Cleanse the skin and apply a thin layer wax on the required area, let it dry and pull it off. The rica wax is very hard and takes time to melt even on the stove hence use a wax heater and a wooden spatula for easy application to avoid the mess. Repeat the process. I suggest using a post wax lotion to relieve pain. The drawback of rica wax is that it can only cover a small area of the skin at a time whereas the regular wax covers the maximum area and the waxing process is quick. Hair removal method using rica wax is messy and time consuming initially for the beginners. Over a period of time it can be done quickly. After waxing, I can feel the soft and smooth skin without leaving residues behind. It keeps me fresh and clean. This product best suite waxing sensitive areas with minimum to no irritation and pain. I strongly recommend this product.
Basically, I have very thin and less dense eyebrows and was using a brow pencil to enhance my brows. I bought Milani stay put brow colour to try an eyebrow colour. The brow colour has an intense pigmentation. Really, it defined and filled my eyebrows where ever required. It is long lasting and has super staying power. Milani brow colour has wide variety of shades. The brow colour texture is soft, firm, and creamy. The consistency is thick. The packaging of the brow colour is travel friendly and the product comes in a pot with a double ended brush. The tool comes with an angled brush on one end and spoolie on the other end to apply and blend the colour. This tool helps us to apply the brow colour precisely and gives an intense definition to the brow. I felt it is easy and convenient to use. We can choose the closest match of the shade. Using the angled brow brush, pick up some amount of the product and apply to fill the outline the eyebrow. Carefully, fill the brow from the inner corner and sweep it throughout the brow, ensure it does not look patchy. Blend it using spoolie brush. I suggest, for keeping the shape of the eyebrows intact apply any gel on top of it. My eyebrows looked natural. It did not smudge or fade away till I removed it by myself. My eyebrows looked thicker than the normal. I consider it a good buy.
We can say Milani baked bronzer is a revolution in the makeup products. It is specially fabricated on Italian terracotta tile. It gives glow and shimmery effect on both face and the body. These are the limited editions. Initially these products are creams and are baked for some period of time till they become dry powders with velvet soft texture. The bronzer is richly pigmented and gives a lustrous and vibrant look. Its texture is not so softly ground. The shimmers are very fine. It is a perfect summer, day-time bronzer for luminous tan look. They can be used as dry or a wet form. I suggest tapping the product once you pick it up with the brush to avoid excess. It blends well as the bronzer texture is satin soft. The packaging of the baked bronzer is so convenient with golden box and a transparent lid which has a mirror and a brush under the powder pan. This bronzer gives a young feel to the face. It highlights and brightens the skin on the face and body. As the product gives shimmery effect, we can skip highlighter during make up. However, those who like a sheen, shimmery tan look can try this product.
Clinique anti blemishes solution kit has given me a solution for acne and blemishes. It has shown me an instant and visible result on my skin. I recommend this kit for oil and blemished skin. It is dermatologically tested and free from phthalates and paraben. This product has helped me in controlling blemishes on my skin. The ingredients in the product help us in preventing excess oil secretions on the surface of the skin that could lead to clogging skin pores. The anti-blemishes kit contains three products to be used in three steps. For the first step, use cleansing foam, it is so mild that clears and prevents blemishes. I liked the cleansing foam as it made my skin look fresh and clean by removing excess oil and dirt from my skin. I use it sometimes after removing my make up to cleanse the left over residues. The second step is clarifying lotion which is a gentle exfoliator. And the third is anti-blemish solution that is so light weight and benefits the skin very much. It has been formulated to sooth and repairs the blemishes. I recommend this product on regular usage. It helps in preventing break outs and makes the look clear and happy.
The product I use as a BB Cream changes every time as per the claim they provide. I bought NYX BB Cream recently. I can say that it acts more like a primer or tinted moisturizer rather than a BB cream. It gave me skin like mattifying look. The cream texture is thick and oil free that gives a light or a weight less coverage. I found the coverage of this cream is not up to the mark as that of a foundation. I have very minimum acne spots on my skin, that have disappeared after applying the second coat but few fine lines were visible. I suggest using a concealer to hide the dark spots, dark circles and fine lines and set the make up with a compact powder. My skin felt hydrating, soft, smooth and radiant as its formula is enriched with minerals. It is available in three shades hence easy to pick and match the right shade to the skin tone. One drawback is that it does not contain SPF. Must be used along with SPF on top of it. It is not long lasting when compared to the BB creams that I have used previously. It faded out by the end of the day. This product is not recommended for the ones who have trouble skin with blemishes and pigmentation.
Bobbi Brown is one of my best choices in gel eyeliners as it is smudge proof and water resistant. It is fabulous to wear this liner even when the climatic conditions are hot and humid. Its pigmentation is rich and long lasting. However it tends to dry after long hours of wearing. Though the product is expensive, the eyeliner pot is stylish in appearance, travel friendly and the gel is easy to use to draw a fine line. I suggest to use the eyeliner as quickly as possible. Once opened, the liner gets dried up within few months. This product is best for ones who use eyeliner on daily basis. I recommend Bobbi Brown for gel eyeliner lovers.
I am in love with MAC pigments as it gives a sheer shimmery look to my eyes. The pigments are so intense and in the form of loose glittery powder. Perfect for a party wear. The texture of the pigment is coarse and not finely milled. The pigments must be applied carefully, once applied it is easy to blend. We must be cautious while picking up the product to the brush as it is weightless powder. I observed that these pigments can be better applied by damping the applicator or brush with setting spray or even rose water for long stay power. To show a complex colour on your eyes, pat the pigment rather than sweeping the colour on the eyelid. Use a primer or concealer as a base, blend the desired eye shade and top up with the MAC glitter pigment to define and emphasize the shape of your eyes. I use these pigments in many stages of my makeup. It can be used on lips by topping the pigment on the lip gloss for a red carpet show. On cheeks it gives an illuminous effect. You can play with pigments on nail art. I strongly recommend MAC pigments for its value for money and multi-faceted utility.
I am a person who likes to use different foundations and bb creams. I got Revlon colorstay whipped cream which is talc and paraben free. This is not exactly a mousse but a whipped form of a foundation. It comes in a heavy glass jar which is not travel friendly. The cream consistency is very thick thus it is hard to blend the cream foundation with a brush. I used my fingers to blend the cream on my skin. For an extreme dry skin I suggest to apply a moisturizer as a base and top it with the whipped cream foundation to avoid dry and patchy
