Nivea Coloron Crayon : Review and Swatch

You might have seen the Nivea lip balm in the local drug stores. Might have tried them too. Recently in my rndom haul, I came across this new launch from Nivea that is coloron crayon. Being super enthusiast for lip products, needless to say, I did by this product. Let’s see more about this product.

They have three shades in this range:

Click on the images below, to buy the shade you like.

1 Pop red

2 Coral crush

3 Hot pink.

Only first two shades were available in the store I visited and I went with the shade Pop red.

What does company claims:

Ingredients:

Price:

299 INR post discount 249 INR for 3 gram or 3.3 ml

Shelf life:

29 months. Once opened, 12 months.

Packing:

The outer cartoon has this all the details about the product including the mode of use, ingredients etc.

The product comes in crayon packing. it’s beautiful red stick with the name of the company printed on it. The cap covering the product is transparent which makes it easier to recognise the colour of the product using. The bottom is the white twister you can twist it, in order to take out the product. The red and black color combo makes it look pretty.

The crayon packing is a good travel companion.

Shade:

It’s a pretty red shade, which is ideal for a day out or party.

 

Is it moisturizing:

Yes. It does keep your lips moisturized. My lips felt moisturized for about four hours, while I was in air conditioned environment. Mentioning this because you know air conditioning makes skin dry.

But I must say, if you have dry lips, it does highlight the cracks. Even though your lips feel moisturized, the cracks are still visible. Strange… 😪

Texture:

It has creamy texture. Has shimmery particles. But it doesn’t look tacky, but I’m not a fan of this kind of finishing either.

Does it transfer:

Yes it did.

How long did it last:

Company itself has mentioned on the product to reapply to keep lips moisturized and tinted, so can’t expect a long lasting formula.
The shimmery texting fades away pretty soon, with water and food. But it leaves the tint on your lips. This lasted for about three to four hours on my lips.

Once Applied

My take:

This is a pretty good for the amount we are paying. It moisturizes lips and gives good color payoff.

Even though I know some lipsticks which are good at keeping lips moisturized and cost you less, this product wins when it comes to moisturization. My lips didn’t feel the need for a lip balm.

But I didn’t like the fact that it highlighted the lines or cracks on lips.

Pros:

  • Availability.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Keeps lips moisturized.
  • Good color payoff.
  • Decent deal for the money paid.

Cons:

  • I’m not a fan of shimmery finish.
  • Highlights the cracks, if you have dry lips.

Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss in Shade Great Coral-ation Review

Hello,

Me and my never ending lipstick collection…!!!

I know… I know… I have told you that I won’t buy anymore lipstick or glosses…. But, it’s me…!!! I can’t stop myself from trying out different lipsticks and glosses…!!!

Hey, Plus I have a valid reason to shop. I am a Nykaa Prive member. Wanna know the advantages of being that??? Check out the story here.

Since glitters and sparkles are my current favorites, I have fall in love with glosses all over again. Adding to my lip gloss collection – here is the new bee to my box. A beautiful gloss from the brand – Wet n Wild.

Let us know whether I am going to recommend this to you or not.

Brand:

Wet n Wild

Gloss Name :

Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss

Cruelty Free???

Yes. A happy bunny on a product makes me happy. None of our furry friends were hurt for making this product.

Price:

250 INR for 5.4 g

Shelf Life:

3 Years

Shades Available:

There are 6 girly shades available.

  • Sweet Glaze (Baby Pink)
  • My Cherry Amour (Blood Red)
  • Great Coral-ation (Peach)
  • Sinless (Lightest shade of Pink)
  • Crushed Grapes (Dark Pink)
  • Cherish (Light Orange)

The Shade I picked:

Great Coral-ation

Packing:

It comes in a plastic tube. The color combination is cute and girly. The cap is black, tube is peach and there is a white strip to separate these two colors. Honestly, it do reminds me of some school uniform color combo.

Plus points about the packing are – apart from being a travel friendly packing, it also helps in differentiating the shade. The tube color is been colored similar to that of the gloss inside it. Thus, if you purchase all the shades, you don’t have to pick the shade after checking the gloss inside it. You can differentiate just by looking at the lip-gloss tube.

Applicator:

Its a typical sponge applicator. Its soft and edgy. Makes application easier.

Fragrance:

It smells like a candy. But nothing like any fancy sweet candy.

Texture:

Its creamy. Gloss is neither sticky nor heavy.

Color Payoff:

Honestly, it doesn’t really looks like a peach gloss on my lips. Let me just remind you my lips are bit pigmented.

If you are looking for a proper peach lipgloss, na this is not the one for you.

But yes, if your expectations regarding color pay off is less, this will turn out to be a good lip gloss.

This adds a hint of peach color to your lips along with nice shine. It did look nice. The best part about the lip gloss I can say is it’s moisturizing quality. It did not dry out my lips. In fact it did hydrate them.

So, as company also says – I used this with some of my lipsticks which I don’t find hydrating. Just apply a layer of your favorite lipstick shade. Over it, apply this gloss. It looks amazing anddd keeps your lips moisturised.

Is It Transfer Proof???

No. In fact if it is any gloss, there is high chance that they do transfer.

Staying Power:

It stays on lips for 3 to 4 hours without food. But with food the glossiness disappears. A very mild tint remains on lips.

Pros of Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss:

  • Affordable.
  • Six variety of shades to chose from.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Moisturizing.
  • Adds nice shine to lips.
  • Good quality applicator.
  • Doesn’t feel heavy on lips.

Cons of Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss:

  • Not Transfer proof.
  • Color pay off is not that great. Which is con for pigmented lips.
  • Staying power could have been more.

Will I Repurchase???

Ummm No, not the same shade. I would like to try different shades in this range. Loved the idea of using it with lipsticks to create a moisturized, shiny look. Its a good deal for the price we are paying after all.

Will I Recommend???

If you have pigmented lips, looking for a gloss – skip it. If you are looking for moisturizing lip gloss and full coverage is not your concern, go for it.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Balm Reviewed

If you have checked my post about the latest lip scrub, you know how bad the condition of my lips were last week.

Like most of the girls, chocolates are my first love too…!!! When I am having bad day, I make sure I end it on a good, umm rather a sweet note by indulging in some yummy chocolates…!!!

When I love chocolates so much, I obviously try to find beauty product which do have essence of coca or chocolates in it.

DSCN0412

Palmer’s coca butter formula has been one of my favorites, as their products have this amazing fragrance of cocoa and they are super moisturizing. So with that past experience with some of the products I have used from the range, I bought their lip balm. Read on to know whether you should try it out or not.

Brand :

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula
 

Flavor:

There are 3 flavors available. All are with SPF 15.

I picked up the first one. Since that is a tinted one.

Price :

130 INR for 4 g/0.15 oz

Ingredients:

DSCN0414

What Product Claims:

  • Ultra Moisturizing
  • Helps Prevent And Protect Chapped, Cracked Or Windburned Lips
  • Smooth Application

Packing:

Firstly, tube packing thumbs up. Hygienic as compared to tub packing.

Unlike most of the lip balms, this isn’t a normal bullet packing. This is a oval shaped bullet. At first you might feel it uncomfortable to apply as we are used to normal round shaped bullet packed lip balms. But once you get used to, this is in fact the easier way of application.

DSCN0415

The bullet is white in color. The tiny sturdy plastic pack makes it a comfy travel buddy.

Tint:

This flavor is a maroon tinted lip balm. It does adds a faint maroon color to your lips when applied.

Fragrance:

This is the best part. It has a mild fragrance of chocolate. Even though the name says its dark chocolate and cherry, the lip balm smells more like a rich milky chocolates. The fragrance is heavenly.

PS: The fragrance is not over empowering. You can smell it while applying but it fades fast. So, if you are sensitive for the smell, you don’t have to worry.  If you are a chocolate lover like me, you are gonna enjoy the fragrance.

DSCN0417

Texture:

It is super creamy. I have used many other lip balms but this one glides like a dream.

It is moisturizing???

Yes totally.

Does this heals chapped lips???

As you know, I had a very chapped and dry lips last week. This lip balm also played a good role in healing it. I would say yes it does helps in healing dry lips.

It has vitamin E in it. Which is used for healing of damaged tissues. I think it does spells its magic on chapped lips to heal them quickly.

Is it ideal for day time use???

Yes. Since it has SPF 15 in it, this makes ideal for day time use.

Will I repurchase???

Yes. It does what it claims and plus the price is much cheaper than many of the lip balms in the market.

Will I recommend???

Yes to all the girls who are suffering with dry lips this winter + the girls who love chocolates.

Forest Essentials Cane Sugar Lip Scrub – Worth Buying???

Hello,

How’s your weekend going on??? I’m out with a friend of mine to have my favorite pulav. In order to get the parcel, will have to be in a queue. So, right from the queue I’m posting this. Haha

I don’t know what was wrong with my lips last week, my upper lips were so damn dry that they looked dead. The lip scrub I usually use didn’t help. Lip balms were of no much use. After trying out different things, I gave up. Thought of letting it heal.

DSCN0398.JPG

The other day I was doing a window shopping online. (Yes, browsing things and adding them to your wish list. Now that’s called window shopping.) While doing that, I came across this product.

A lip scrub from ‘Forest Essentials’. I was eager to try out their products. They are well known for their quality and their ingredients.

Now that I was in NEED of a good lip scrub, thought of moving this from wish list to my Shopping cart. 😉

Let’s see whether that was a wise decision or not…

Brand:

Forest Essentials

Flavor :

Cane Sugar Lip Scrub

Price:

525 INR for 5g

Shelf life:

12 months

Happy news:

Not tested on animals.

Ingredients :

All safe ones.

DSCN0409.JPG

Packing :

The outer hexagonal box looks something like this.

DSCN0399.JPG

Inside, there is this little sturdy circular plastic box. With golden colored lid. Box is transparent. There is a foil on the product. (Not any more. I tore it off. Haha)

But, box packing is always unhygienic. I would suggest forest essential to consider a bullet packing for this. It will be perfect…!!!

Fragrance :

It has a citrus smell. It’s neither over empowering nor faint. If you citrus fragrance is of your type, you are going to love it.

Texture:

It’s non sticky, non runny. It’s creamy and has minute granules.

DSCN0404.JPG

My Experience :

Applied this on my super dry lips. Extremely dry. Left it for couple of minutes. Then, gave a good massage and rubbed it off.

End result??? My lifts were back to life. They were much better than they were before.

I believe that’s because of the magics of oils and beeswax in the product. I’m in love with this product.

You know what the best part is??? I didn’t have to use a lip balm post scrubbing my lips. The scrub is moisturizing. 💋

Less amount is enough to do the magic hence this is gonna last for long. At first I did thought it’s a lot of money for a tiny box of lip scrub. But after my experience, I know it’s worth the money. Totally.

DSCN0408.JPG

Has it made a place in my beauty kit!??

Yes. A permanent place. I will buy it again for sure.

Will I recommend???

Yes. If you have extremely dry lips, do try this. I know you will find this pricy at first but, it’s totally worth it.

Me and my never ending lipstick shopping…!!! Ahhh…!!! I got to tell you I have finally met my ideal lipstick…!!! Can I say – The Lipstick??? Phewww…!!! #LoveSaga

I will review my special lipstick someday soon…!!! But today let me review a gloss which I bought last week.

L’Oreal Paris has introduced some beautiful glosses recently. There are total 11 shades available in this range. You can check out the shades here. I usually prefer some light shades like peach, pink or light red. I opted for this cute shade. Let’s see whether this cutie looked cute on my lips too.

DSCN0299

Brand: L’Oreal Paris

 Lip gloss name:

Infallible Mega Gloss xtreme Resist

Shade Number: 503

Shade Name :

All Night Long #Ahemmm

DSCN0308

Price:

INR 850 for 8 ml

Shelf Life:

29 months

Shade:

Its a mixture of red and peach.

It comes in a transparent, sturdy plastic tube. The cap is black in color. Since you can see the shade, its easy to pick the gloss from the collection.

The good small tube pack will surely make this your companion while you travel.

Applicator:

Like what??? Doesn’t it resembles a snake??? I really didn’t get the concept behind this type of applicator. If you do plz leave a comment below. I want to know. #gosh

Texture:

Its a bit heavy for a gloss.

Finish:

Its a glossy finish.

Fragrance:

Strong smell of candies. But It’s really strong…!!!

DSCN0301

Color Pay off:

Color pay off is poor on my pigmented lips. It did look attractive but on my lips, it was just a thin film of gloss.

What I liked:

  • It didn’t dry my lips.
  • Availability
  • Travel Friendly packing

What I didn’t like:

  • Pricey or I can say this shade at least is not worth the price.
  • Color payoff is very poor. Definitely not for pigmented lips.
  • Feels heavy on lips.
  • Strong fragrance might irritate you.
  • Applicator Dahh…!!!
  • Ingredients list not mentioned.

Will I repurchase???

Never. At least not this shade again..!!! Since I have already spent money on this, I am gonna apply this on my lipstick to get the glossy finish.

Will I recommend???

Definitely not for the ladies with pigmented lips. Gals with naturally red/pink lips can use this to enhance your beauty, as it doesn’t dry lips.

Review of My Most Used Lip Balm

Hey,

People keep asking me, “you use lipsticks so much, don’t your lips get dry???”… Ummm more than lipsticks the air conditioner makes my lips dry. So, I always keep a lip balm handy.

Now, the obvious question… Which one???

Let me review my most used lip balm till date.

Brand : The Body Shop

Range : Born Lippie

wp-1504540295268.

Flavor : Strawberry (my favorite 🍓)

Tint : Red

Price : 275 INR

Ingredients :

wp-1504337664532.

Availability : In the body shop outlets and online.

Packing :

Comes in semi transparent plastic box. The cartoon has this red lips design on it.

wp-1504337664715.

Sturdy box with tight lid is super handy.

What I liked about it

  • The color,the flavor was enough for me to pick this one,the first time. 💋
  • The fragrance. The yummy strawberry fragrance makes you feel like eating it. Trust me. The other day, the lip balm was lying on my table in the office. One of my colleagues picked it up out of curiosity. He opened it and he asked me about it. I said it’s my lip balm. He had thought it’s something edible sweet. Haha.🍓 Thank God, he didn’t taste it. #sigh
  • It hydrates lips well. It keeps lips moisturized. 💋
  • Along with moisturization, the Tint and shine it adds is amazing. Lips look luscious and shiny. It’s more kind of lip gloss. 💖
  • It’s vegan. Being an animal lover, I love the body shop products as its cruelty Free. 🐇
  • Little goes long way. Hence worth the money. 💰
  • Ingredients list seems safe one. 💊

What I didn’t like

  • It doesn’t do much if you have extremely dry lips. When I have very dry lips, I use the lip scrub and then apply this balm. It works that way. 😕
  • Tub packing is unhygienic. Every time I have to dip my fingers in order to take out the product and apply it on my lips. Thus there is a hygiene concern. 😕

Will I repurchase

It’s my third box. I will repurchase the same flavor. I love this color out of all other flavors. 😍

Will I recommend

Yes. You will love this lip balm. I guarantee. 😉
