This is Why I Do Not Use Facial Wipes

Recently, Kylie Jenner was slammed for advertising  makeup wipes for all right reasons.

For those who are not aware, Kylie has cosmetics as well as skin care range on her name. One of the products in her skin care is the makeup wipes.

She claims that the wipes remove waterproof makeup, matte lipsticks

In the promotion video she is seen advertising the product but we cannot see her using them on her skin. She just removes swatch of lipstick from her hand..! She can be seen blindly recommending the products to her followers.

While watching one of such promotional videos of her skincare range, what caught my mind was her sentence “I have used some yummy products to make these”…

a. If they were really yummy, these would be edible.

b. If they were that real yummy, why don’t Kylie use them on her skin to demonstrate.??

Forget about Kylie, let’s talk about makeup wipes. There are ‘n’ number of brands that have released makeup wipes in the market. Are they really good??

Just to give a brief background, makeup wipes/ cleansing wipes/ facial wipes, as name suggests they are used to wipe away makeup products.

How to use?

You need to rub the wipes against your facial skin.

It is said that the wipes have ingredients that melt down the makeup products.

 

Are they reusable?

No..! They are for one time use.

 

Does they really efficient?

Answer is NO.

Some facts:

  • Makeup wipes are not at all ultimate cleanse. You have to wash or cleanse with other product after using makeup wipes.
  • Makeup wipes do not melt all sort of makeup products. So 100% not efficient in cleaning the face.
  • Rubbing the wipes against skin is not at all recommendable. The friction causes damage in the wrong run. Girls with sensitive skin, please stay away.!
  • You need to put good amount of pressure while rubbing the wipes. It is said that this pressure applied can push the makeup products inside facial pores instead of cleaning it. If not cleansed again with other cleansing product, this will result in breakouts.
  • As I said, makeup wipes have certain ingredients in them that are meant to melt makeup. But, there is good chance that those ingredients are not meant for your skin..!

 

Makeup Wipes are not good for environment.

Makeup wipes may look like they are made of clothes. But in reality they have plastic content in them. You already know, plastic is not biodegradable. Hence, if you don’t want to contribute to the already increasing global environmental changes, please stop using wipes.

 

Now you know why Kylie is being slammed for her marketing gimmick. She is smart enough to know these facts about wipes and that’s why she did not use them on her skin. Not even to advertise..!! She just used some ‘yummy’ words to sell them.

So, to keep your skin and our planet clean and happy, please stop using makeup wipes..!!

If you are using makeup wipes and do alternative, go for a good cleanser. If you have dry skin, go for oil based cleanser. Water based cleanser is good for oily skinned beauties. Normal skin girls are blessed ones..!! They have plenty of choices to choose from..! 🙂 For this change, your skin and mother earth will thank you.. 😊

Kylie Cosmetics Lip gloss Literally – Review

Hey,

As there is a great sale on Kylie cosmetics, I am posting a review of one of the 3 glosses I had purchased from Kylie Cosmetics, today. So that it might be helpful for you while shopping from the site.

The shade I am reviewing today is – Literally.

wp-1504341451817.

Shall we start with a quick review???

Brand : Kylie Cosmetics

Shade name – Literally

Color – N*de

Price – 15 USD (Excluding Shipping and custom charges) I got this as a free one from Buy 2 get 1 offer.

Shelf life – Not mentioned

Packing

It’s packed in a hard paper box with melting lipstick cartoon on it. Outer box looks similar to that of Posie K and Candy K. Sorry I have misplaced the outer cartoon of this particular gloss.

wp-1504337664433.

The gloss is packed in a sturdy glass tube. Design is typical Kylie’s black melting lipstick design.

In order to help differentiating the gloss from your collection, name of the shade is been printed on a sticker which is on the bottom of the gloss.

Travel friendly??
Yes it is. It takes very less space in your handbag so yes you can travel with it easily.

Applicator

wp-1504337664278.

Same as Posie and Candy K.A soft bristled brush.

Fragrance

It has Candy like sweet fragrance. Feels like eating it. haha

Color pay off

wp-1504337664122.

Color pay off is nice. But this particular shade doesn’t suit my skin tone. It some what washes me out.

Is it moisturizing

Yessss… Unlike some other gloss, it’s super moisturizing.

Staying power

Staying power is for 2-3 hours with food…!!!

The gloss does transfers and fades while having food or sipping beverage. As I said, this particular one is n*de shade. So it doesn’t add any color to your lips in particular but adds gloss.  A very light gloss remains on lips post food intake.

 

Will I repurchase???

No. This didn’t suit my skin tone. I would love to repurchase other shades though.

Will I recommend this to you???

If you are cool toned, its a NO. If you are dusky beauty, YES you will look smooky H*t with this shade for sure. #wink

Kylie Blush – Hopeless Romantic : Review

Hey beautiful,

Few days ago I had received my goodies from Kylie Cosmetics. You might have seen my post unpacking the box.

Here is the review post of the Blush from that haul of mine.

wp-1502537065707.

Kylie cosmetics has five different colored blushes.

  • Barely Legal (light pink)
  • Hopeless Romantic (Red)
  • Hot and Bothered ( Peach Red)
  • V*rg*nity (Light Pink)
  • X Rated ( Lighter shade of Saffron)

The one I chose is Hopeless Romantic (yes I am… #haha)

Let’s start the review…

Shade Name : Hopeless Romantic

Shade Color : Deep Red

Price : 20 USD

Ingredients :

wp-1502536943455.

Packing :

Outer and inner boxes look like these.

wp-1502536827030.

Color of the boxes are same as that of the color of blush. They have Kylie’s name printed on them.

Inner one is a sturdy box. Initially, when the product was new to market, mirror was something that was missing.

Now, it does have a mirror on it. This is plus point, as you don’t have to carry a mirror with you while traveling.

A thick transparent plastic film is placed over the Blush, inside inner box. This helps Blush from spilling.

wp-1502536620356.

Product :

The product surface is designed like melting one. This is typical Kylie pattern.

Texture :

The creamy texture. So soft and easy to apply.

Since this is one of the deep shades. Hence little goes long way.

Staying power:

Stayed on my cheeks for a good amount of five hours.

wp-1502536702246.

My experience :

I had some bad experiences with the blushes I had tried before. Some didn’t had good color payoff. Some broke me out. Some where too powdery ones.

This one, is super smooth. The red color, gives natural flushed look. Little quantity goes long way. Hence this product will last for long.

I will upload face makeup with this Blush soon…!!!

wp-1502536999975.

Will I repurchase???

Yes… I would love to… May be I will buy same shade too.

Will I recommend???

I will recommend all the Kylie products.

You can buy the product from here.

Mygirlypedia Rating: 5/5

Trust me, these Kylie products have made me go crazy. I wanna shop more and more from Kylie Cosmetics. I will buy eye products from Kylie.

Happy shopping.

Kylie Lip Liner Posie K : Review

Hey,

If you have followed mygirlypedia closely, you know everything about lip liners. If you have missed that post, here is the link.

As you all know from my previous post, I own a Kylie lip liner now. proud Whether it may be new cloth or new cosmetic product, I really can’t wait long to try that out…!!! So, today I have tried my new lip liner on my lips. Here is the review of it.

Read on to know whether its worth the price and hype.

Packing:

 

 

Comes in white card box, with melting lipstick design. The pencil has Kylie’s name printed on it.

The cap of the pencil is sturdy and tight. No worries of accidental opening and breaking the product. The bottom of the pencil has the colored strip, similar to the shade. Its helpful to pick the particular shade from your collection.

77

Price:

This is a free product. If you check Kylie Cosmetics, lip liner is a part of lip kit(Lip kit= Lip gloss + Lip liner). Lip liner is not sold solely.

Ingredients:

wp-1501773316484.

Shade Name:

Posie K

Color:

Peach Pink

88.jpg

My Experience:

Travel Friendly:

Yes. Thanks to tight top of the pencil.

Color Payoff:

Color payoff is super cool.  I have applied only lip liner on my lips. No lipstick/lip balm or lip gloss over it.

m.jpg

Staying Power:

Stayed for good amount of 6 hours with food and water intake. I mean. for a lip liner 6 hours is amazing. ..!!!

Does this dries out lips???

I have tried few other lip liners from different brands. They dried my lips a lot. I had to apply lipstick / lip balm over it. But this one didn’t. I am addicted to lip balms or lipstick. But today I didn’t apply any of those.  Happy tears

Mygirlypedia Rating: 5/5💋💋💋💋💋

In short, I loved it.

I would love to buy it again and yes, I will recommend this to you too…!!!

Hope this will help you pick the product at Kylie cosmetics the next time you shop.

Keep Shining…!!!

 

 

 

 

My Recent Haul from Kylie Cosmetics

Hey You,

I am soooooooo happy…!!! The reason being, I have received my products from Kylie Cosmetics yesterday…!!!! Kylie made my Monday a happy one. I got my other products from Nykaa. Tuesday is also a happy one now for me. wink* *Shopaholic You know what I bought from Nykaa??? Hint – Here.

There was a sale going on couple of weeks back @ kylie cosmetics. ‘Buy one get one free..!!!’. I know, its hard to resist when you see ‘buy one get one sale’ or rather the word ‘sale’ right??? So, the shopaholic gal in me, shopped few products from the online site. Here is sneak peek into the box I have received.

Yesterday I wanted to unpack the box with you guys. But, for some reasons I couldn’t share the live video. sob

No worries, I am gonna show you what’s inside the box now.

Ready??? Okies…

So the box looked something like this.

With typical Kylie designs and her name printed on it.

I loved this optical illusion card. Kind of fashionable and naughty. wink

The card read:

Here are the products I bought:

I wanted to try the blush from her range. So here is my blush.

For the free product, had options like kyliner, kylighter, few glosses and lip liners to choose from. I have a huge stock of eye liners. I have not started using highlighters. I own glosses. Only thing missing was lip liner for my favorite Kylie lip gloss. Hence, I opted for lip liner.

1501604580265-182171827

Two of the lip glosses I have already reviewed. Candy K and Posie K.

Will post reviews of these two products soon…!!!

I will keep you guys posted if there is any offers/ sales on Kylie cosmetics next time.

Packing

It’s packed in a hard paper box with melting lipstick cartoon on it.  Outer box looks something like this.

Name of the shade is been printed on a sticker which is  on the bottom of the gloss. It helps in differentiating the gloss from your collection.

Travel friendly??

Color pay off

Is it moisturizing 

Yessss…  Unlike some other gloss, it’s super moisturizing.

 

Staying power 

I’m stunned by its staying power. Gloss remains for good 3-4 hours with food…!!!

Even though the gloss transfers and fades while having food or sipping beverage, the color still stays. Stays for a good amount of 6-7 hours. It’s a pretty good amount for a gloss…!!!

Value for money!?? Worth the wait??? 

Definitely

Will I repurchase??? 

Yes. But I really want to skip paying custom charges.

Will I recommend this to you??? 

Yes. If you are a fan of lip glosses, this one is a must for your collection.
