Average Product

I always try new lipsticks and still never get enough of them. So, recently I tried Loreal’s Colour Riche Pure Reds Star Collection Lipstick. Though the range does not have much variety all the colors available in the range are highly pigmented. The shades available are suitable for almost all skin tones and are very comfortable to wear. The lipstick has a creamy texture which helps it to glide on the lips smoothly. The color pay-off of the lipstick is good and they are perfect for daily wear too. Post application, it gives a semi-matte finish which stays in place for some time. So, in general, the lipstick is good but the cost is quite high. This holds true concerning the performance of the lipstick after an hour or so of application. The lipstick by that time starts to feather and bleed and needs a touch-up. It also gets transferred easily which too is a negative point. So overall, the lipstick needs to be used with a lip-liner and it also needs a touch-up, after meals.

Good but expensive !

This product from Bobbi Brown is one of the best in the market. The product though is expensive but it is the most effective concealer to cover dark circles in just one swipe. It comes in 15 stunning shades that are diverse. It is suitable for almost all skin tones and is easy to use. The product comes in a slim container with a doe-foot applicator which makes the application of the product easy. The product dries up fast so as soon as the product is applied, it needs to blend well for a flawless matte finish. The product is highly pigmented and covers even the fine lines around the eye area. The effect of the concealer lasts long and thus is worth the money spent. Overall, the product is good with only one issue. Constant dipping of the applicator is required to apply the product to large areas of the face.

This product has been introduced to me by my sister-in-law. She has been using a few Clinique products and thus was one of them. She shared very positively about the product ad handed over me one from her vanity to try. As I looked at the stick, I found its packaging simple yet sturdy. The product comes in a retractable stick which is compact and travel-friendly. The shade range in the product is limited and thus the range has only basic shades to offer. The texture of the product is thick but still, the product glides on smoothly. Wearability on the skin is light-weight and comfortable. The product does not wear-off or smudge and thus lasts for a good amount of time. The best part of the product is that it does not have phthalate and parabens in it. Thus, overall, the product is good but nothing exceptional to price it so high.

Lotus Herbals is one of the brands which I always prefer to buy products from. So recently, I saw an advertisement on its Phyto Rx Daily Deep cleansing Face Wash and could not hold myself to try it. The packaging of the product is very different from its regular white base packaging and is very attractive actually. The product comes in a broad-tube packaging which is easy to carry and use. The texture of the product is gel like and is very smooth to feel. The product contains a wonderful blend of all-natural skin-friendly ingredients like turmeric, basil, and thyme. It also has a mild but very pleasant fragrance which makes you feel refreshed. The product after use gives a clean skin and the face gets oil-free. Continued use makes the skin nourished and revitalized. Suitable for all skin types. A must try for all looking for an affordable and effective herbal product.

Great product…worth buying

In the past, I had used a couple of shampoos from Loreal. One thing that I always liked about those were they I never found them harsh on hair. So this time when someone suggested me to try its Smooth Intense Smoothing Shampoo, I did not think twice. After using the shampoo for almost a month, I can say that the shampoo is a great product for dry and frizzy hair. The shampoo has ingredients like argan oil and milk protein which make the hair soft and manageable. This is a feature that I liked but do not look into shampoo for myself as I have oily hair. The fragrance of the shampoo is mild and pleasing. The shampoo foams well and cleans the scalp effectively. If used for a long time, the product can make hair strong and soft. It is a very affordable shampoo with such features and hence is a must-try for dry hair.

It is best suitable for dry and combination skin types. The product comes in a retractable pack with a glass cap. The product is compact and hence is travel-friendly. It is a gel-based foundation that has a very creamy consistency. It is easy to use and is highly blendable. It also has an anti-shine powder core which is very lightweight and it is the core feature that helps in absorbing oil on the face to give a shine-free look.

It is a dermatologically approved and ophthalmologist tested product which is used as a contour around the eye area. This eye treatment formula is very effective in reducing the appearance of crow’s feet too. It is an oil-free and light-weight formula that is easy to blend.

Eyebrow gel is the most celebrated product of the current century. People use it diligently on a day to day basis. So several makeup brands have launched gel eyebrow enhancers in various forms. In this diverse range, NYX has launched its waterproof eyebrow gel. The product comes in five shades and they almost suit all the hair tones for Indians too. This product is an eyebrow enhancer which makes the eyebrows look full and thick. It is a lightweight formula that keeps eyebrows in place without smudging or spreading. The stay of the product is good and it is longlasting. The only concern with the product is its application. For a person like me who has not used any eyebrow enhancer in the past, its application gets trick. Rest the product is good as is in affordable range in comparison to Benefit Cosmetic’s Ka Brow Gel. A must-try for at least once.

Cleansers are something that I use daily but I never used an oil-based cleanser ever. Thus, when a friend of mine suggested this oil-based product, I was skeptical. I have oily skin which gives me breakouts almost instantly if I apply anything that has oil in it. But since she was so confident about the product, I decided to try it at least once. So, after using it just once, I can say that the product is good. It especially stands out on the fact that it removes the makeup in just one swipe. Another point that I liked about the product is that it is made up of natural oils and thus is safe to use. Yet, the main problem with the product is that though it is non-acnegenic, it gave me breakouts after use. In fact, it made my face more oily and my pores enlarged. So I can say that the product is not meant for people with oily skin.

Eyeliners are an absolute essential for me and in fact, I love to flaunt them. So trying a new eyeliner is always in my wishlist. So this time tried this retractable eyeliner from NYX. The product comes in 13 shades and out of those I tried the shade - Gypsy Blue. To be honest, I liked the eyeliner for its texture as all other features that it has are similar to other eyeliner available in a much cheaper market. So, the texture is very soft and creamy and hence it glides on easily. The issue with the product is that as time passes, it starts fading off. In fact, it starts smudging as soon as the skin starts oiling. For a person like me who has oily skin, it is a major concern. This eyeliner in my case always smudges and coats my eyelids too. Thus, for me, this product is just average.

I am not a very big fan of mascara. I use them only occasionally and whenever I use them, I try to get the lashes full which are well curled too. So this time tried volume express hyper curl mascara from Maybelline. After using it a couple of times I can say that the product stands the claims it makes. Its semi-thick texture does make it give volume to lashes and its easy to use curling wand helps in getting those perfectly curled lashes in no time. The product formula is slightly creamy which makes the product glide on lashes easily. Further, the product is water-proof and smudge-proof which makes it long-lasting too. It does not need a touch-up and stays in place for at least 8 hours, the maximum I have kept on my lashes. The best feature of the product is that it is dermatologically tested and is very affordable. Overall, the product is good.

This lipstick is an addition in the gel lipstick class. This lipstick range has 12 colorful shades which are all suitable for various skin tones. The lip[stick comes in a retractable pen-type packaging and is easy to carry and use. The texture of the lipstick feels like a creamy balm on the lips. Its texture is the reason that the lipstick glides on the lips easily and feels very smooth and comfortable to wear. The lipstick is well pigmented and is buildable to desired intensities by giving multiple swipes. The stay is also decent and the lipstick manages to stay in place without feathering. The finish of the lipstick is glossy which is not intense but sufficient enough to give a subtle dewy look. It transfers and also starts to crumble a bit sometime after application. Overall, the lipstick is good in its performance but certainly not the best.

Foundations are an absolute necessity to keep makeup in place. So, I keep trying new foundations and hence recently came across MAC’s Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation. The product is available in 19 shades which cater to almost all skin tones and types. It is a dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested product. It is a gel-based foundation that does not oxidize. The product consistency is creamy and light-weight and it blends well in the skin. It is suitable for dry skin though other skin types can also use it as it is oil-free. The product controls shine and gives a natural finish to the face after application. The product is water-resistant and has medium coverage wherein the use of the concealer is not required to cover spots and blemishes. Overall, the product is very good concerning its performance but it is too expensive and does not fit into everyone’s budget too.

The texture of the stick is creamy and hence applying the same is easy as it glides on smoothly. The product claims to be oil-free but it does make face oily and may give breakouts too. The finish of the product looks unnatural at times and it gives a faux glow. After some time of application, the product starts fading off and it also starts settling into fine lines making them more visible. Overall, I felt that the product is pretty average for the cost it is available at.

It feels light-weight on the application and gives a flawless matte finish to lips. The only issue with the lipstick is that it bleeds and feathers after some time.

MAC Fast Response Eye Cream is a caffeinated cream that works on dark circles. Tried the product for less than a month as the product comes in a 15 ml pack which does not last for a month. The cream is effective in reducing fine lines around the eyes. It also works well in reducing puffiness of the eyes but its impact on wrinkles is not much. It is a multipurpose cream that can be applied as a primer before applying concealer. The cream has a pleasant fragrance and is very creamy in texture due to the presence of wheat germ oil. The product is suitable for almost all skin types and is safe to use. The price of the product is slightly high keeping the amount in mind. In total, the product is good and works fine on some of the eye area issues but it is certainly not an exceptional product.

So tried the product and after multiple uses, I can say that the product is good but certainly not the best. In fact, it is quite average. The product is available in the market in 5 jaw-dropping shades which are good to go on every look. The shimmer comes in a compact brick packaging which is easy to carry and use.

The product gives a mild glow to face which I always prefer as I never like to create a look too dramatic.

I always prefer to use mascaras which gives volume to the lashes. So was keen to try MAC’s Upward Lash Mascara as the product claims to give high-rise level of length, volume and curl to the lashes. After single use itself, I can say that the product works well in comparison to many mascaras available in the market. The product comes with a molded brush that has a hollow center. This brush thus helps in loading the lashes with thick volumes of mascara which to some extent helps give volume to the lashes but mostly it gives heavy deposit which makes the eyes feel heavy. Though the good part here is that the brush shape is small and this helps in reaching the farthest lashes too. The product texture is smooth and highly pigmented. The product is flake-proof, smudge-proof and is long-lasting too. Overall, the product can be recommended to all to try at least once, though it is quite expensive.

I could see remarkable change in my colleague after she started using the product. The product has helped removing her dark circles and worked on the dull portions around the eyes. The texture is creamy and thick as it has natural oils, yet, it is suitable for all skin types. The product is safe and is tested by dermatologist and ophthalmologist too.

Good Product

NYX professional’s multitasker mixing medium is a great product to intensify pigments. It is a compact product that is easy to carry and comes very handy on various occasions. The product is a translucent gel-based formula that is light-weight in texture. It is a product which is easy to blend and use and thus is suitable for all skin types too. It works much better than a water base mixing mediums as it is water-proof and long lasting. Neither it creases nor does it falls off, it stays well in place for a decent amount of time. This mixing medium basically turns pigments into creamy eyeshadows and liners. It is great to use with both matte, and shimmery base eyeshadows to create customised looks. The only drawback with the product is that it takes time to dry. Rest, the product is good and is a must try for all those who love to create flawless look with pigments.

I prefer to use blushes occasionally as I have sensitive skin and using certain blushes give me instant breakouts. So while selecting a blush, I prefer to pay the utmost importance to its ingredients. Recently a friend shared with me about Clinique’s Cheek Pop which she had been using for a long now. She shared that the product is available in 14 shades which are suitable for almost all skin tones. The texture of the product is silky and smooth and hence is easy to use. It blends easily and the color intensity is buildable. Almost all the shades give a faint glow to face which gives a natural finish to face. It does have a shimmery impact too but then it does not make the look appear fake. She swapped the blush on my hand and it literally felt quite velvety and looked natural too. The product stays in place for quite sometime and it actually is long-lasting. All in all, the product is good though a little expensive.

Eyeshadow palettes from NYX are always good concerning their color pay-off and texture. So, this lid lingerie shadow palette too is good for many reasons. Firstly, the palette has a wide range of tones and depth which are suitable for almost all skin tones. The palette can be used to create look for various occasions. The texture of the shadow is velvety and creamy which is easy to use and is comfortable to blend. The product thus can be applied with the brush or with fingertips thus giving a flawless look. The eyeshadows have a matte finish which is perfect for daIly use as well. The color pay-off is good and the product is long-lasting, which is very desirable from an eyeshadow. The tones of the shades are such that that they can be mixed and matched to create a customisable look. Overall, the product is good with just one concern that the product is greasy and settles in fine lines around eyes.

Bobbi Brown has some of the great concealers which are up to the mark. So this time while trying to get a new concealer, I heard about Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit. The product comes in 15 shades that suit almost all the Asian skin tones. The kit is a combo product that has a concealer and pressed powder both. This kit hence gives a concealer that can be set in with the pressed powder. The texture of the concealer is creamy thus making it easy to blend. The concealer is effective in hiding spots, blemishes, and pigmentation. The product has a long-lasting effect and it is waterproof too. It is also humidity and sweat resistant. So overall, the product is good. The only issue with the product is that over time the product settles into fine lines and creases. Also, the product is expensive which does not fit in everyone’s budget.

Mac match master concealer is a product that I have been recently introduced to by a friend. She has been using this product for the past few months. The product is available in 8 customizable shades. The shade range of the product makes it suitable for all skin tones and skin types too. The product comes in a retractable tube which is easy to use. These shades adjust according to the skin tone and thus provide medium coverage. The concealer effectively works on hiding the pigmentation and dark spots. The concealer moisturizes the skin and gives a perfect matte finish to face. The product texture is soft and smooth which is easy to blend. The product also is long-lasting and stays up to 8 hours a day. It basically is sweat-resistant and hence is a good product to use during humid days. Overall the product is good though it is expensive.

A good makeup primer is something which is all that we need to have for flawless makeup. NYX soft tinted primer is a mineral-powder based primer which helps create a smooth base for makeup. It is available in 3 shades and all of them fairly suit Indian skin tones. The product comes in a tube packaging which is easy to use. The product is good in its performance as it gives a soft finish to makeup that stays for long. It helps control shine and is good for people who have oily skin. The primer since is tinted hence it gives an average coverage to spots and blemishes on the face. This since works like a concealer hence it does not require a separate product unless there is an uneven skin tone. The product is also very lightweight and gets absorbed in the skin well. This helps in reducing pore visibility. Overall, the product is good though it is very expensive.

Patanjali is a brand famous for its herbal products. I have been using its hair and skin care products for long now. For hair care, the one product that is a must buy from their shampoo range is Kesh Kanti Reetha Hair Cleanser. So basically, this product is a herbal shampoo made with “Reetha”. It also has other ingredients like Heena, Shikakai, Amla, Aloe vera, and Neem which are holy for hair care. The shampoo is very mild and is very convenient to use. The shampoo prevents dryness and dandruff and it also helps to reduce hair fall to some extent. For me, the product has been a savior. It has helped me with not only hair fall but also has helped me in controlling oil secretion on the scalp. This thus helps prevent my hair from getting oily every second day of washing. Overall, the shampoo is good especially keeping its price in mind, which is highly affordable.

After pregnancy, my skin has become lose and in fact, has developed a lot of issues. So to seek some solution discussed my concern with a friend. She then told me about Clinique Repairwear Uplifting Firming Cream. She shared that though the cream is expensive, it definitely has some benefits. Firstly, the cream has an SPF-15 which is desirable. It is paraben and phthalate-free which too is a good point. The best then is that it is dermatologically tested and is non-acnegenic. For product formulation, it is meant to repair skin which it does in the long run. This cream can also act as a base for makeup. The product is suitable for all skin types and works especially well on dry skin. Overall, she shared that the product is good. Though I felt that the cost at which the cream is available, it is an issue. It is not at all affordable and is too pricey for the benefits it holds. Recommended only if it fits your budget.

Illuminators are what are used to highlight key features of the face or the body as they play with the light and hence have a different impact as in comparison to a highlighter. But this illuminating range from NYX is a wide range of products which have blushes, highlighters, and bronzers in it. The product comes in a thick stick form with a glass cap that is compact and easy to carry. The stick form of the product works well for strobing and help create a perfect look for every occasion. The texture of the product is soft and creamy and it glides on easily making the application easy.

In the long run, the product does have some benefit to the skin but it does not work completely like a serum that is meant for skincare. Overall she said that the product is good and would be best in the market provided its price is revised.

Powder makeup is something that I have not tried much and hence when a friend of mine suggested me to try Milani’s smooth finish cream to powder makeup, I was skeptical. Still thought to give it a try. So this product is slightly pricey compared to drug store brands but is worth it. It comes in a beautiful rose gold compact kit that comes with a sponge and a mirror. The texture of the product is smooth and velvety and thus it glides on the skin smoothly. The base of the product is oil-free and that was a big relief. The product blends nicely and is effective in concealing imperfections. It stays on for about 5-6 hours and does not bleed, crease or smudge. It controls shine which is the reason that it does not give breakouts. The only issue that comes often with the product is that it does make your face look cakey at times. So this a major concern, rest, the product is good in its overall performance and is a must-try.

Liquid and cream lipsticks are what I have always loved but have tried lip tints or dye very rarely. So during one such rare incident, got to try this product. I got from a friend as a gift, the shade that I had received is “Heartbreaker”. This lip dye looks like a cream lipstick which gives a finish similar to matte liquid lipstick. The texture of the stain is smooth and light-weight. It is easy to apply and has a comfortable applicator with the doe-foot wand. The color pay-off of the product is good and the pigmentation is intense. Though the only concern is that the tint works as a matte lipstick and hence tends to settle in the crease lines and tend to make lips dry. It is not at all suitable to be applied on chapped lips. To conclude, the product is fairly good with its performance though it is not exceptional.

On application, they give a shiny shimmery look to eyes which is not loud like eye sparkles but is shimmery. All the shades are well pigmented and are perfect to create different looks. The shades blend well and are comfortable to use. Overall, the product is good except the fact that the shades do not stay for long and tend to fade off. They also get smudged after some time making it not so lasting. This is a major drawback for this product as it is not cheap at all.

I tried shade Germanium. So start with the packaging, it is sturdy and is classic in the pattern. Nothing out of the box or attractive. The lipstick color is very subtle and the texture is creamy and soft. The velvety texture of the lipstick makes it glide on easily giving good coverage. The stay of the lipstick is pretty long and it does not bleed or fade off. It transfers but not too much which actually is very much desired from lipsticks. Its gel-based formula keeps the lips super hydrated and still manages to pull a matte finish which I absolutely love. So in total, the lipstick is a great buy even when it is slightly off the budget. I have already recommended this to friends and family.

NYX never disappointed me with its eyeliner or eye pencils. I have tried a couple of them and have always been satisfied. This time before I could buy, my sister gifted me NYX’s slim eye pencil in the shade Sapphire. It was a beautiful teal blue shade which makes eyes pop up. This shade is my favorite and stays in my vanity always. So for this eye pencil, I particularly liked its texture which is very soft and creamy. Its application is easy as the pencil glides on well which leads to break and clump-free application. The stay of the eyeliner though is not very long and after a couple of hours, it starts to smudge on the eyelids. It also fades off which means touch-up is needed after 4-5 hours. So though this product is affordable, it does not work well in terms of its overall performance. I would recommend this product to be used only for brief occasions as otherwise, it needs a touch-up to keep its stay long.

So for this, a good tan removal product is an absolute necessity which I always fulfill by using Himalaya’s tan removal orange face wash. It's been a long time that I have been using this product as it does delivers what it claims to do. It does cleanse the skin and helps in removing mild tan.

This particular product is my favorite and hence stays in my vanity always. The best thing about the product is that its easy to use. Its wand is designed such that that it defines lashes well and thus gives volume too. It stays for long and smudges only under intense heat or moisture else it manages to stay intact for long. The only issue that I had ever faced with the product is that it does not get removed easily. We actually need multiple swipes with cotton drenched in makeup remover to clean the eyes spotlessly. Else otherwise the product is great and a must for all those who like to flaunt full lashes.

Primer is an absolute essential for skin with enlarged pores and uneven texture. This also is a necessity for a person with oily skin to control oil secretion and thus keep the makeup intact.

Before I talk about anything, I must admit that I liked all the colors offered in the pallete. They all looked mersmerising and are perfect to illuminate your features. The colors are well pigmented and give a glow effect which looks good on all skin tones. The colors come in pressed powder form which is very soft in texture and hence is meant to be used via strobing for best results.

Bobbi Brown is a professional makeup company that has never disappointed me with its makeup products though have never actually tried their skincare range. So during a random conversation with a friend I came across their hydrating eye cream. As my friend has tried it so thought to check her reviews on it before i invest money into it. The product review that she shared after using it for a span of 3 months is - AVERAGE. She shared that except the fact that the product is lightweight and absorbs quickly it does not do much for the eye problems like puffiness or dark circle. Further, she shared that the product works more like a makeup base than an eye cream. The only good point about the product is that it has mineral blend which moisturises the eyes. Rest she felt no significant improvement in her eye problems even after 3 months of religious use. So I guess the product indeed is expensive for what it offers.

Eyeliners are my essentials and I cannot do without them. I have tried pencil, liquid and pen eye liners and have loved all of them for specific reasons. So recently my sister bought this ink liner from NYX in brown shade. As i saw the product, i felt its packaging is very trendy. It has same features as a pen eye liner with felt tip. Its tip is well defined and helps create sharp wings but this is not easy as the tip is very soft and it tends to bend easily with even slight pressure though if used with care, the end result is always good. The formula is highly pigmented and gives matte finish but, it does bleed and fades away after some time. It also is not smudge-proof and hence can last up to a few hours only. Overall, the product is not worth the price it is capped at especially when some better options are available in this price range.

Loreal Lipsticks are one of their kinds and I have always loved them. This collection range - color riche is also a good collection of amazing 42 shades out of which my favorite one is Blush Never. The shade range has shades from nudes to pinks, browns, and reds. This diversity is the reason that this collection is suitable for all skin tones and is good to go daily and/or specific occasions too. The texture of the lipstick is creamy and very soft and thus it glides on easily. It has omega-3 and argan oil in it which gives a fine fragrance to the product. These key elements also are responsible for hydration of lips which is an important aspect. For pigmentation, it is intense and thus the color pay-off is good. The only grave issue is that the lipstick transfers a lot and hence is not long-lasting. Overall, a good product that can be used with some lipliner base to make the stay last long.

Comparatively Expensive Product

Mac has been a brand trusted for its good quality makeup. This is the reason that I tried this product and used it a couple of times. After use, I could say that the product is pretty average. The product is gel-based, is easy to apply and sets the brow well in place for a long time and does not give an overly dramatic look, all good features from a buyer’s perspective which are available in many drug store brow products too. But the additional features are that the product is non-antigenic and ophthalmologist tested. With all these good points the product is worth trying once but still, the point of issue is the cost. The product seems expensive as most of the shades in the range are not ideal for black brows thus making it not so ideal a product for use. So I would recommend this product for all those who have brows in the brown shade.

My All Time Favorite

Maybelline has been one of my favorite brands. I bought many lipsticks from the brand and the one that still I use religiously is 207-Cherry Crush from their Color Show range. This shade looks like strawberry pink on lips. A shade perfect for everyday wear to the office. I tried other shades from the range too but this one has been in my vanity for long. The best that I like about this range is it is super soft and creamy in texture and hence is easy to apply. It keeps the lips hydrated and does not cause any dryness leading to cracking. On top, the shade range is good and almost all the shades are intense and pigmented. The stay though is not long and the product transfers a lot but then it does not fade away completely. It needs to touch up after a big meal only. All in all, with the price range it comes, it is a good product which worth the money spent.

Average Product

Coconut is very nourishing, and hence, I have always used coconut oil for my skin and hair whenever required. So recently I came across this conditioner from OGX. It’s a coconut milk conditioner with a blend of egg white protein to give ultimate nourishment and care to hair. So I tried this conditioner in the hope to get some benefits. After a coupled of uses, I deduced some things. Firstly, this conditioner is not an ideal choice for someone like me who has an oily scalp as this conditioner makes hair look greasy, so this product is good for people with dry hair. Secondly, it gives hair a feel as if it does not wash off completely, meaning it does leave a residue even after a couple of washes. The rest of the conditioner does hydrates hair and makes hair soft. Rest I did not feel any other change in my hair with respect to strength, luster, or volume. It is the same. So I would say that the product is of average performance and will be a good choice to control frizz.

Good Moisturizing Cream for Winters

I have been using Ponds Cold Cream for as long as I was a child. It has always been the best suit for me. So I can vouch for its quality. Ponds ever since has launches Ponds moisturizing cold cream, it’s there in my winter skincare regime. Ideally, my skin is oily, yet, I do find it a little during winters and Ponds moisturizing cold cream has done at its best for the same. It always makes my skin soft and moisturized without making it oily. Post applying the cream, though the skin gets moisturized I get a slightly matte look which I like. I also like the fact the ingredients of the cream are not only chemicals but it does have vital beauty oils. This cream I believe is best especially for dry skin as the cream really moisturizes the face well and thus has the ability to control chapping. I never faced any issues with the cream though my sister who too has an oily skin found it greasy & heavy. I guess it depends as no two oily skins are the same. So I recommend this product to those who have skin dryness during winters. It is a product worth buying.

Good Product To Try

I am not a big fan of pen eyeliners which basically as liquid. Though they are easy to use in comparison to classic liquid eyeliners. So I recently bought Blue Heaven’s Sketch Eye Eyeliner in black. This eyeliner is decent with respect to its performance and has nothing exceptional to add to the eyeliners which are already there in the market. Though I agree that the liner is highly affordable and has some good aspects to it. Like, the liner is well pigmented. Its application is easy as the liner is in pen format and thus is easy to carry too. Also, it is water-proof and thus does not smudge. So it is long-lasting. But then the quantity of the product is less as just after 10 or so applications the liner did not work. Also, it is a product which is not available in every cosmetic shop, even the same is online too. All in all, the product is good but not exceptional. So I would recommend this product for its affordability and long-wear.

Surprisingly Effective

I have never tried fairness creams ever. But then BB & CC creams are of course in my vanity. So a friend of mine told me to try Fair & Lovely BB Cream as she felt that it is good and is inexpensive. So thought to give it a try though since the beginning I was skeptical to try it. I bought an 18.5 gm small pack as I just wanted to try the cream and was not intending to completely switch to it. So, as I applied it, I felt that the cream is smooth in texture and is easy to apply. It is highly blendable and has fair coverage too. It also is very light-weight so post application it did not feel as heavy as it feels after applying a foundation. This is a particular point here as this BB cream does have the foundation in it. The product basically has been formulated to give makeup like finish to face. So the cream does not look like makeup done but it certainly works as a fair coverage foundation. I kept the cream on for about 4-5 hours and felt no need for re-application as it was to an extent successful to keep itself in place by controlling shine which was a surprise for me. My skin is too oily and keeping it shine free is not an easy task. So I actually liked a semi-matte look that the cream gave me. The good part of the cream is that it has SPF 15 PA++ which does make it worthy to be applied under the sun as well. So to conclude, I can say that the product has surprised me and I actually liked it more than I thought. I have started using it on & off and till now have no complaints as such except the fact that I would have loved to see some more shades to this cream as the foundation base at times make the cream not so suitable for all the skin tones.

Try Worthy Product

As I have oily skin, for the best of the products used, I always need something which could keep my face shine-free and thus the compact comes to my rescue. I have tried many compacts and have come across a few perfects, few goods, and few bads too. So this time I thought to try Lakme Absolute White’s Wet & Dry Compact. The packaging of this compact is classy. The velvet pouch in which the compact is covered is cute to look. Compartmentalization of the product and the sponge applicator is a well thought of thing as it is hygienic. Sponge too is soft and is good to use for applying the compact, both dry and wet. Coming to the compact basically is a 3 in 1 product which in its dry form is used as a compact and when applied with a wet sponge, can be used as a foundation. So this feature I like the most as the product is multi-purpose so it definitely is handy for daily use and ideal while traveling too. It has 6 shades all of them which I felt are suitable for Indian skin tones and this also is a good feature of the product. Since I have fair skin, I tried the shade Ivory Fair. The texture of the powder both dry and wet is good and this makes the product blendable and thus is easy to use. Though the coverage I felt is average and it has no comparison to heavy-duty photo finish foundations as it does not work on blemishes and spots beyond a level. Though the product formulation is moisturizing and does not cause any skin issues if applied dry or wet. The addition of Vit-B3 and hyaluronic acid is again a good feature of the product and that definitely is a benefit to the skin. SPF 17 is another feather to the cap which makes the product a must-try.

Hydrating & Moisturizing

Nivea is a brand that I had always seen in my father’s shaving kit since I was a child. I fondly remember it as a dark blue circular tin pack which when opened used to have a tin foil. Under the foil used to be a mild pleasant fragrant cream which was thick but moisturizing. I & my 2 sisters used it a lot in childhood but post-teenage as my skin started becoming oily and in fact too oily, I had to stop using the cream. Especially on the face as the cream used to give me breakouts. So I missed that cream a lot until Nivea brought the charm back in the form of daily lotions and body milk. So as Nivea’s body milk came to market, I grabbed it almost instantly. I use a few body oils but never had a chance to use body milk so my curiosity in the product was anyways high. So this product is almond oil enriched nourishing and hydrating lotion which actually works well as it claims. In fact, on oily skin like mine, it never felt heavy, which is appreciable. It made me feel nourished and hydrating. (Though to note here is that I always used this on my entire body except my face.) It has a very smooth creamy texture which is easily absorbed in the skin and gives a faint shine which is pleasant. It has a fragrance that is soothing and refreshing and hence I live to use this cream after bath. I will not stay that the product is long-wear but it certainly is effective. I am sure that it will work wonders for people with dry skin.

Luxury Product

Decadence by Marc Jacobs is a perfume which is a luxury range product and is hence is too expensive. I got to try it from a friend who bought it from Canada. So she was using this perfume while she was at her home and as soon as I saw the bottle, I fell in love with it. The packaging in the entire is classy and definitely matches the luxury range packaging standards. Be it the perfume bag, the bottle or its tassel laced cap. Everything spoke for luxury. So as I checked on the scent, I found it woody yet pleasant. It gave a very earthy feeling which was tingling and refreshing both at the same time. In fact, the scent has different notes to it so in total it is a mix of fragrance which we can sense in this product. The stay of this scent was good and I think it stays on clothes till you wash them. So wearability is also a feature at which the product stays well. The quantity though is less for the price but then that is the way luxury products are. So I can say that this definitely is a product which anyone would love to flaunt provided its affordable. If you have money to spend on luxury products, then definitely this a product which worth a place in your fragrance tray.

Expensive but worth it

The current market has a variety of scrubs available which range from tan removal to pore cleaning with ingredients like coffee to aloe or hazelnut seed extract. So post my delivery, I received a gift from a friend where she gave me some skincare products to try as she knew that post-pregnancy ladies struggle with skin and hair issues. So I tried the scrub and to be honest, the scrub has been extremely good for me. The first reason being it is a water-based scrub and that is perfect for someone like me who has oily skin prone to product reactions. Secondly, the product actually worked on my pores and reduced their visibility. Then, it controlled my breakouts and has been gentle to my skin thereby giving a faint glow to my face. To boost the standard of the product further, the product is paraben & phthalate free which is a big win. Though the concern with the product is the quantity. It is less for the price we are paying. If the quantity would have been more, like, 200 ml then the cost would not have felt to be on the higher side. Rest I strongly recommend the product for people with oily skin prone to acne.

Good for Every day Use

Cocoa Butter Cream is something which I buy firstly for its awesome fragrance and then secondly for its moisturizing properties. Generally, many brands which make cocoa buttercreams have delivered satisfactory products, at least I can talk about those which I have tried. So just a month back I was using Vaseline intensive care cocoa buttercream and decided to try now Himalaya. The first thing I liked is the affordability of the product as the ones that I have tried earlier to this were all slightly on the higher side with respect to their costing. The second thing is the creaminess of the cream. The cream actually is very good in texture and hence gets absorbed in skin easily. The fragrance is no doubt my favorite as I always like cocoa fragrance. This is so refreshing and soothing. It makes me feel pampered. The star of the product is natural ingredients like Cocoa butter, Olive oil. Grape seed oil and Wheat germ oil. All these oils are rich in Vitamin-E and hence help in nourishing the skin well. I loved using this cream though I did not apply it on the face. So I doubt if this cream actually will be good to be applied on my face as I have oily skin. But overall, the product is really good and I strongly recommend it to everyone. Especially as it is suitable for both men and women and can be used every day.

Eyeshadows are something I do not use very often. So while buying them I get very selective and experimenting is something that I avoid as else the product goes waste. But this time, I could not resist myself of buying Makeup Revolution’s Fortune Favours The Brave Eyeshadow Palette. The reason is that it has 30 mesmerizing shades and secondly I got it on an online deal in just 1600 INR. So for me, this deal was difficult to ignore. Now, I have tried a coupled of shades from this palette and thus thought to share my experience here. To start with the packaging, it is as attractive as the shades are. The kit has 30 shades which are matte, sheen and glimmer. This makes this palette a multi-purpose product which is good to go within every occasion. The texture of the eyeshadows is little powdery and thus it tends to fall out. But the shadows are highly pigmented. The applicator brush provided with the palette is decent to work with. The eyeshadows are not long-lasting even if applied well. So it is disappointing and thus I will not recommend this product just because it is affordable and is easily available online.

Too Pricey

Straight hair is what everyone loves. I basically have silky hair but they are wavy. So on occasion, I like to work on the waviness a not and make my hair straight. For the same, I was using recently the Philips Kerashine Hair Straightener. But recently while my visit to the hair salon I came across this hairbrush straightener by Dafni. I was astounded to see its cost but then I checked its features and thought to share its review. So this hair brush straightener is a portable hair styling brush. So the brush has a top 3D coating of ceramic and hence it is known as Go Straightening Ceramic Brush. The brush does not have temperature adjustment like other straighteners, it maintains the brush temperature at 180 degrees constant as the same reduces the damage to hair which happens due to high heat application. The brush has a charger which is detachable and thus the product is portable and easy to carry. The brush comes with a thermal cover and thermal travel case which is needed when the brush is used and then immediately packed. All the above features are not available in the regular hair straighteners and hence the price is high. The straightener gets ready to use very quick and is more powerful than regular straighteners. So after test trying the product I found that the product is easy to use, travel friendly, safe and 100% result oriented product but then the cost is something which keeps this product in a range which is not easily affordable to all. And keep all its features in mind, I still feel that the cost is not justified.

I am a happy user concerning the relief that tree oil has given me by reducing my pores and thus the breakouts. I even use them as incense by mixing it in lemongrass oil and then keep them in different corners of my house to give a relaxing feeling. I at times have tried using it for my clothes too, so I have added a few drops in my laundry liquid. Thus I can say that tea tree oil is a part of my life now. Recently I am using a tea tree oil that I had bought from Mcleodganj. While a vacation there I had purchased this from a Tibetan shop and it was there with me for quite some time. I took it out for use only when I finished my current supply of tea tree oil from Body Shop. I am yet to buy a new bottle, and this will be my 7th bottle in a row. Body Shop’s Tea Tre Oil I had first purchased for my acne issues, and I must say that from its first use itself I fell in love in with it. The product is of very good quality, and the price too is affordable. Its best feature is that it is an on the spot application product and hence does not need a carrier oil or any other dilution which is what we generally need with essential oils. As the brand claims, it does mattify the skin post-application, and as it controls oil, it does help in breakout control too. Since it is a 100% natural oil, so it does have the goodness that is required to take care of your skin, this product even has skin-soothing and healing properties as I had tried it on my breakouts, which it has taken care of well. I absolutely recommend the use of this product not as a treatment oil only but as preventive support for skin too.

Pigments are multi-purpose make-up products that I have never used due to spill over that we face with them so recently saw a friend using these gorgeous pigments from Mac. She told me that there are almost 40 shades available in the market and all of them are irresistible. The pigment that she shared with me were – Melon, Fuschia, and Copper Sparkle. I must say that all the shades were great and had good pigmentation. In fact, the texture of the pigment was soft and was easy to apply. In fact, it made me fear-free to use these beauties too. These can be used both dry or wet and were easily blendable with a good pay-off. I personally liked it when applied wet. I also noticed that as my friend was applying these, they were sticking to her eyelid quickly. This is something I have struggled with medium-range pigments. But then she shared that these pigments do have a fall-off issue and this is something which needs patience; hence she applies them patiently and therefore they are not quick at all. Rest as I checked the price, I felt that though it is expensive but then worth the cost as the quantity is enough to be used. And then the overall performance of the product is also satisfactory. Hence, I now have decided to buy these for myself too and would recommend these to everyone who loves have a glimmer glittery look occasionally.

Infact she uses the cream also. So, this face wash is a cleanup face wash which is a multivitamin face wash. It claims to work in 3 steps, i.e, cleansing, exfoliating and massaging the face. I observed my mother-in-law use this product for almost a period of 6 months but I never saw an extreme difference in her face. As the product claims, it may have been cleansing and exfoliating her skin but then the glow of a clean face is never visible. Though I observed that her pores have minimised and skin looks little firm than before. Also, I never saw her complain that the face wash has made her skin dry when she actually has dry skin. So I think, the product is good for dry to oily skin. With respect to price, the product is very inexpensive and is easy to carry.

My mother uses hair colors and I have always seen her using Garnier Black Naturals. I suggested her to try some new products which she does but she always moves back to Garnier only. So I asked her the reason for the same and she shared some very valid points. Firstly, she said that the hair color is ammonia-free and has an oil base due to which it nourishes the hair. It makes hair smooth & soft as it has almond oil in it. The process of application is easy and it takes just 15 mins to cover all the grey hair. She further added that the color lasts long for her and she gets root touch once in a month. This is important for her as she too has an oily scalp and thus there have been times when some other brand color never stayed on her hair for more than 10 days. So that ways the product is economical. She recommends this product to everyone who talks about grey hair coverage to her.

So nowadays I am using Loreal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner. I purchased it online post discount. It is available in 6 shades and the one I am trying is Electric Blue. So far, the eyeliner has impressed me well with its pigmentation. The product then is easy to use due to its open shape. So basically it is a liquid liner with a felt tip which is always a travel-friendly product. The texture of the liner is soft but it does look lumpy at times. For drying, the color is quick-drying and lasts long. Though the finish is average and thus the product looks pricey for this performance. Rest all the shades available in the range are good and demand a try at least once.

I love Elizabeth Arden Perfumes. So recently bought its 5th Avenue perfume. To be honest, this bottle has its classic golden outer packaging with a glass bottle inside which has this liquid which too looks golden and then the golden cap. The fragrance has notes of Bergamot, Bulgarian rose, Ylang Yang & Jasmine. After sometime when the perfume settles, it smells more like sandalwood, Tibetan Musk & Vanilla. But overall the perfume lingers as a floral smell which is very feminine but strong. The perfume basically is long-lasting and for the refreshing fragrance that it gives. It definitely is a perfume which must stay in your collection as it really has a very soothing and refreshing feel which not only comforts you but the people around you.

Fair to Try Product

So I am another of a 9-month-old and struggle with puffed eyes due to less sleep and stress. So I was searching for an eye cream that could work on this concern. So my younger sister bought this eye cream for me. This eye cream is Clinique Pep-Start Cream. To start with the price, I agree that the cream is expensive. For ingredients, the good thing is that it is Paraben Free and allergy-tested. There is no fragrance in the cream though it does have a very faint smell of alcohol. As I used the cream, I found that the product is lightweight and Non-acnegenic. The cream did reduce my eye puffiness but then still not to a great extent. The cream though after application gave a very soothing feeling but at times it can irritate eyes too. The application also is a little concern as sometimes the product does not come out of the pop ball tip of the applicator. The product with the applicator is to be swiped on the eyes including the lids. The product does not absorb with the applicator so need to use fingertips to make the product absorb. Generally, I use the product twice. Once after washing face post I wake up and then once before I got to bed. Overall, the performance of the cream is average though it is not poor. I do recommend to try this product.

Pro's

1. Allergy tested

2. Faint fragrance

3. Can be applied on the entire eye

4. Paraben free

A product for Good Health

Lifebuoy is a household name in India. Its soaps were in every house when I was a kid and that big pink soap was what people use to refer to whenever something was needed to hand wash. But now the product has updated itself and has been in the sanitizer market as well. Lifebuoy hand sanitizer is a clinically proven product that claims to kill 99% of the germs. Along with this function which every hand sanitizer performs, this product also works on building immunity which is claimed to last for up to 10 hours. The best thing with this sanitizer is that it comes in different sizes. It is easy to carry due it its compact size availability and hence can be used anytime anywhere. The product is available in 3 fragrances. I personally like Lemon Fresh. It has that lemony fragrance to it which is very refreshing. The sanitizer in itself is gentle on hands and does not make hands rough post application as some sanitizers do due to their alcohol content. A must buy product that requires to be in every purse, every house, every travel bag and every place that needs to be germ-free. A recommendation for preventive healthcare.

Satisfactory Performance

Charcoal peel-off masks are a rage in the skincare market from some time now and they are loved for the fact that they have the ability to take of whiteheads, blackheads and small facial hair in just one go. This saves a lot of time else cleaning up at a salon is a time-driven process. So I have tried quite a few peels of masks. From ever youth’s glow and shine orange peel-off mask to VLCC’s charcoal face mask. So to this trial list, I added Healthvit’s Activated Charcoal Purifying Peel-off Mask. The product like other charcoal product has used activated charcoal which works to purify skin deeply. In my first use itself, I felt that the product is definitely of good quality and has the ability to fight skin impurities. It works on pores and thus controls oil release too. Further, it is a product that is affordable and is easy to use. At times I felt that it does not spread well but then compared to Beardhood’s peel-off mask that I had used in the past, this mask is much better. Also, it does have an issue while peel off as it sticks to face but then it is bearable as it does take out those stubborn white and blackheads head out in just 1 use. I liked the product and feel that it worth a try for sure.

Average Product

I have used Dabur Gulabri by mixing it with my toner which was had a burning sensation due to the alcohol present in it. It does help me in that and I used it to thereafter too. So when I used it as a toner, I found it little oily, something like a syrup. I have oily skin which at times is sensitive too so it made my skin a bit more oily and thus I did not use this again as a toner. It also gave me some breakouts too. But I continued using it as a base for my face packs and sometimes used it to wet my face before scrubbing and found it to be good. So for me, it is an average daily use product.

1. Can be used as a base for face packs/masks

Unbelievable price

I am not very fond of nail colors and hence I hardly purchase them unless they are too good. But my sister loves using nail colors and she does not seem to have satiety for them. So this time I thought to give her a good collection at once. I did some search on the internet and thus came across Elle 18 Nail Pop Nail Polish. Now, this product is in the market for long now but then I never thought of trying it despite the good reviews I read about them. So nevertheless, I bought some of its shades for my sister as a gift. Nail Pop range has 30 stunning colors out of which I chose shade 14, 134, 129 & 130. I tried to give her as much variety in shades as possible. These are cheaper than cheap nail colors and hence I was a little skeptical about the quality. But after use, I was satisfied that the colors are pigmented and are long-lasting. They are good to use formally and casually. 1-2 coats are enough to cover the nail and it dries off quickly. This nail color definitely is a try worthy product. Especially if you change colors frequently and need a new shade every week.

1. Variety of shades

Good quality everyday liner

Eye liners are an absolute essential. It is something which highlights eyes. It, in fact, defines eyes and gives a more presentable look. So here is this eye liner from Lakme which is just a few bucks and has competitive performance. Lakme eyeliners are in the market since I was a child and till now they are sustaining the competition due to their price and performance. Lakme insta liner eyeliner is an easy to use product which is water-resistant. It is available in 3 shades and all these shades are nice to wear to the office or to a casual outing. I personally liked its shade – green. It’s a nice intense green shade that is intensely pigmented. Once applied, the product takes some time to dry which is not the case with gel liners. But then the pricing of the product is very affordable and getting a water-resistant The liner at this range is good. The only drawback I felt is the brush tip. Unless you are a pro, using such a thin brush is a concern. I find it very difficult to put liner and hence use a separate brush for it. Also, the bottle is sturdy yet can break as it is glass. In all, I would definitely recommend this product as it is so in the budget. Keeping it for spare if your gel liner is not around is always an option.

A must have collection

I just never feel contended with the types of lipsticks and a variety of shades. So even if I use or not on a daily basis, there are some lipsticks and/or lip shades that will sit in my vanity. I am a fan of matte shades but equally, cherish the soft & creamy texture of crème lipsticks. I just do not get enough of lipsticks. So as they were launched, I grabbed a couple of shades from Lakme 9-5 weightless mousse lip & cheek color. This entire collection is great with respect to the variety of shades available. The rose gold packaging of the lipstick is very attractive and the texture of the lipsticks too is smooth and creamy. The lipsticks are pigmented and have good coverage. I never tried any of the shades on my cheeks as the product is oil-based and I was afraid if it could give me breakouts. Rest the lipsticks are smooth, easy to wear and affordable. The shades are such that they are perfect for an office and even for a casual outing too. Once you wear these, the lips look full but the lipstick is lightweight. It gives a discrete matte finish which is long-lasting. Though the lipstick does transfer a lot but it does not fade away. All in all, the product is great and is 100% worth trying. Some of the shades like Magenta Kiss & Rosy Plum are what make you stand-out.

Oily Skin – Must Buy

The compact is an essential element of vanity. For me, it is important as I use compact to keep my foundation from tearing. It is also important for me to control shine and thus achieve a matte look. So a good compact must fulfill at least these 2 functions. I prefer to use compacts that are in a close match to my skin tone as else it may give a very powdered look to the face. Now I have tried various products from Lakme’s 9-5 range and thus I ought to try the compact too. The compact under this range is a matte complexion compact which is available in 3 shades. I tried shade lakcomp_melon. I found this shade suits me and thus I can say that this shade is good for ladies with fair skin. To start with the packaging, it is basic yet fresh in comparison to Lakme’s old compact packaging and is for sure sturdy. The powder is smooth in texture and is easy to apply with the puff. As soon as you apply the powder it does soak up the oil on face and thus reduces the shine. It manages to do this for a decent time. It does work well to keep your foundation in place and thus stops the foundation to settle in fine lines. I tried wearing this compact on bare skin too and thus found that it does not conceal the pigmentation if applied on bare skin. But given the price range, it is a compact which is a good selection over the hundreds of options available in the market. It definitely is a compact that we can use on a daily basis. It may not have high-end features but it does cater to basic hassles of day to day life. I would recommend this product to everyone who wants to control shine on face and want a matte look all day long.

Average performance but Irresistible shades

Lakme has gone to the next level with its 9-5 range. The collection of products in this range is great and is affordable too. So I could not resist buying their lipsticks which are available in 20 mesmerizing shades. All the shades worth a try and hence I picked up almost 3 shades from this range. The lipsticks not only are affordable they are satisfactory in their performance too. I loved their creamy texture which moisturizes the lips. The presence of vit-E and olive oil too is a good point. And to add to these points is the mild fragrance which reminds me strongly of jojoba oil. The lipstick gives full coverage to lips and the pigmentation is intense. I never had another swipe, just 1 swipe and whole lip got covered with the beautiful color which made lips look full. The best part in this entire range is that though the lip shades are super pigmented they do not look odd even when used in the office. These shades, in fact, bring a nice glow on the face. With these lipsticks on I do not need much makeup as the lipstick itself lights up my face. A brownie point is the presence of SPF in these lipsticks which of course is an important factor these days. The only drawback with these lip shades is the stay, and this does is a big concern as that means frequent touch-ups. The lipsticks also transfer a lot and that too means that we need a touch-up after the meal. A point that hits the expectations. To sum up, this lipstick range is good with respect to the number of shades available at an affordable price. The texture, fragrance, and feel of the lipstick are also great but it does have an average to poor stay. I would recommend this lipstick for its shades which are good to try but do not expect them to stay long.

Dettol is a household brand that does not need an introduction. Its hygiene care products are world-renowned. Their product – Dettol Liquid Hand Wash is a dermatologically tested product that is designed to cleanse and protect from germs. It basically works on bacteria and this is an anti-bacterial wash. The best about the hand wash is the pump system which has actually led us to stop using soaps which definitely is a germ bearing item as multiple people use it. So this safety feature is the most loved. This hand wash comes in 6 variants and I have used almost its variants and have liked them all. The price range of the product too is ideal and is affordable keeping the safety it provides in mind. The availability of refill packs is another advantage which makes this hand wash the first in the industry to revolutionaries hand hygiene. In total, the best product available in the market.

Amazing Product

Sally Hansen is a good brand with quality products in the market. I have tried a couple of its nail polishes but it was the first time for me to try a cuticle remover. I got the remover online at a discounted rate so thought to try it. So basically this cuticle remover is a gel formula that melts away and breaks down excess cuticles. This process when done in salon or parlor, takes time. But this product has made things easy for even professionals as well. It does gives an instant manicure effect and do everything really quick. To apply, we do not need much product, just a little will do its work. A great addition is that it works on calluses as well. I have tried it on my toe where a stubborn callus was sitting for a few weeks.

Effective Product

Clinique is a brand trusted worldwide for its quality. Its skincare products are always loved and even being pricey is used by many people. So I got this cream as a gift from an acquaintance during their visit to India. Since I had used some of the products in the past so was all excited to try this new product too. So this product is an eye cream which is ophthalmologist tested. This cream is a light-weight formula that works on dark circles and eye puffiness. The product feels very soothing after application and has very faint to no fragrance. The product has green tea and many other extracts like wheat bran extract which are meant to work specifically on eye issues. The cream can be applied with gentle finger motions on the complete eye which is very different from routine eye creams which generally are under eye creams. As the product is allergy tested so we do not have to worry about the application of the product on the whole eye area. I used the product for almost 15-20 days and could say that I felt my puffiness reduce. I cannot comment about its impact on dark circles as I do not have them. The application needs to be done twice a day for best results. And since the product is paraben-free so it definitely is class apart and a must-try. The cost is a concern as the cream quantity is very less and hence the use is to be done consciously.

Best Ayurvedic Serum

Ayurveda is a science that has its roots in India. Many people follow ayurvedic principles in life and use ayurvedic products too. So I am one of those who try to use as many ayurvedic products as possible for skin, hair, eyes and overall health & well-being. I use ayurvedic products from different brands and in fact like to experiment with them to find differences and possible cause/s of differences. So as I have just completed 8 months post-partum and like many women facing the issue of dull skin. I tried Bipah Ayurveda’s Kumkumadi Thailam. This thailam is basically a serum with natural ingredients which is believed to give youthful and radiant skin. The product also claims to improve the texture of the skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots and blemishes. I used the product for over a month and as the brand claims, it does improve the texture of the skin. To some extent, it works on dark spots too but I cannot comment about blemishes. As the skin texture changes hence the skin definitely looks fresh and somewhat radiant too. In fact, this makes skin soft and thus it works as a moisturizer too. The product is expensive and the quantity is less yet I would recommend this product to all as the product worths the money spent.

Mac is a professional brand that definitely has some of the best makeup products to look for. I have purchased its lipsticks and loved them a lot. Recently while my visit to my maternal home, I saw my sister using this blush from Mac. It was a powder blush and it intrigued me as it was looking great on my sister, I thought to give it a try. Though am not a frequent user of blushes yet never drift away from having a class apart blush for myself. So once she was done, I took the blush and checked its initials and then tried it on myself. I tried the product as I got assurance that it is dermatologically tested and is non-acnegenic though it was not recommended to be used in the eye area, so it cannot be used as an eye shadow. As I applied it, I found it light-weight and highly blendable. In fact, it was highly pigmented though the coverage was average. Yet, I liked the product instantly, it was long-lasting and hardly needed touch-ups. I also felt that the shade that I have applied, will be good for most of the skin tones. So I went ahead and checked if the product has other shades too. So to my amazement, the product has 35 shades and all of them are great. Though the price I felt is on the higher side for the fact that there are other affordable blushes too in the market which do give almost similar results. Rest the product is good and worth a try for someone who uses blushes frequently.

Only for Glittery Look

After trying a liquid highlighter from makeup revolution, I started using them occasionally as they made life very much easy for me as I am not a very pro with using brushes so liquid highlighters are a savior. This time while building my cart for an online makeup sale, I came across NYX born to glow liquid illuminator. Since I was getting it in a good deal so purchased it for trial. Out of the 4 shades available, I tried the shade – sunbeam. Now I must agree that the product is good in terms of the packaging and the consistency of the liquid. Both these things made the product use easy. It also very smooth and lightweight and hence gets on the face well. But as far its illumination is concerned, it is a bit too sparkly for me. I like highlighting which resembles natural glow and this highlighter disappointed me at this. So the next time I tried it, I mixed it with my foundation and applied it. When I applied it like this, it went bad to very bad as that sparkle now was on my entire face. So I decided to use it only on the areas that I want to highlight that too with very little quantity. I will recommend this product to those who like the glittery glam look as it certainly is far from giving a natural finish.

Best from the rest

Eyeliners are the important tools to define eyes and for me, they are extremely important. I just cannot do without eyeliner and hence I am a big fan of gel eyeliners as they have made our lives so easy. I am a person for whom handling liquid eye liner is a task. I mess around with it a lot and then I never get the same pattern of eyeliner on both eyes. Hence for me, gel liners are a savior. I have used Maybelline’s gel liner more often but recently a friend of mine suggested me to use Inglot’s eyeliner gel. I looked for it online and bought it at a discounted rate. While searching for it I came to know that it is available in 32 shades, though I got only 3 shades to select from. So since I wanted to try first hence I chose 1 shade out of the 3 available. The shade I bought is 87 which is a beautiful teal blue color. In fact, sometimes I feel it is more a bluish-green shade which looks extremely pretty. It, in fact, lights up the eyes and if this eyeliner is on, I do not need an eye shadow. The product truly is creamy and hence is very easy to apply. The intensity of the shade is very good as the liners are highly pigmented. It dries fast and is smudge-proof and hence a perfect long-lasting liner. Though it does have an issue with its removal, which is very difficult as the product sticks to eyelid completely. Removing it with a makeup remover 2-3 times is a must to completely remove it from the lid. Else otherwise the product is great and a must-have for all. I recommend this to one and all. Soon to purchase more shades.

Lovely Product

Liquid Highlighters have recently hit the makeup world. Prior to them powder highlighter pallets were everywhere but slowly people are moving to liquid highlighters as they are easy to use, do not cause spilling of product as powders do and most importantly are almost the same price as are powder highlighters. So I too did my first purchase of liquid highlighter from Makeup Revolution in shade liquid champagne. Though later I came to know that there are a total of 12 drool-worthy shades available in the range. I used the product now a couple of times and without any doubt, I can say that the product is worth buying. It is a smooth liquid that is easily blendable and in fact, is buildable making it a customizable product. As it is highly pigmented so even small quantities of products do wonders. It certainly adds radiance to face and thus is perfect to create glam party looks. The packaging too is great as the product comes in a bottle with a pipette which helps control the product use. The shade I used is perfect for evenings and is definitely a super choice for fair skin tones. I absolutely loved the product. Would recommend this to all.

Recommended for Dry & Dull Hair

A shampoo is a necessity these days and for people like me who have oily scalp leading to tons of hair issues, this becomes even more of a quest to get a good shampoo. So as someone suggested me to try Matrix Biolage HydraSource shampoo, I was all out to try it. I purchased my online and got a 1000 ml bottle at a pretty decent price. This shampoo basically is good helps in optimizing moisture balance for healthy hair. I agree I do not have much frizz but I do have dull hair so trying this shampoo was for solely to treat dull hair. So after trying this, I can say that it does make soft, smooth and to some levels deal with dryness too. This perhaps is because of the ingredients like aloe, Capua cu butter & apricot kernel oil. For me, this shampoo worked fine and was not something that I was looking for but then I am sure that it is an ideal choice for people with dry and dull hair. As to some extent it has worked on my hair. The best part for me is that the product is paraben-free and that is a big relief. Rest the shampoo is average use for people with an oily scalp.

Trying once is a must

A combination of contouring, highlighting & concealer in one stick is a great idea to put forth. In fact, it saves money and makes the use of the product easy. It also becomes easy to carry and is a perfect thing to carry while traveling. So this product from NYX is very compact and has all 3 things in one stick which was the sole motivation for me to try it. To talk about the product, it is a good product but then it has issues too. The product texture is creamy and hence application is easy but at the same time, it is sort of oily which causes break-outs. The product is easy to blend but looks heavy. The stay is average and needs touch-ups yet, the product is a good buy as it is available in 6 shades most of which are quite a fit for Indian skin tones. So we get a verity to try. And the product is affordable too.
