Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper Review

Hello,

Thanks to Kardashians and Jenners, plump lips is one of the crazy things in the world of glam.

While there are a lot of products claiming that they give you plump lips, I have come across multiple medium to good reviews of this one lip plumping product called – lip injection.

Na, I am not saying injections/ needles. It’s the product’s name.

Have you heard about the brand ‘Too faced’? They have this lip product called ‘Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper’. The brand wasn’t available in India until last week. Nykaa has now launched this brand and the products are now available online and at Nykaa stores.

Needless to say, I was quite curious to try this out. I said curious but I knew it will not be any magical portion to give any drastic results. So, I bought a smaller sized product this week. Let me tell you how it worked or not worked for me.

Brand : Too Faced

Product Name : Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper

It has all details about the product. Ingredients, shelf life, how to use, what to expect etc.

Product comes in a transparent tube packing, just like a lip-gloss packing. The golden cap with the design makes it look interesting. The transparency of the tube makes it easier to keep an eye on quantity of the product inside.

The applicator is quite soft and it is typical doe foot applicator. Makes it easy to apply the product.

Fragrance:
It has very fresh fruity smell. Reminds of boomer chewing gums.

Color:
It is transparent with glossy finish.

My Experience:
It says apply it on perimeter of your lips. Wait for 5 to 10 minutes for it to work.
Instead of going with the instructions, I applied it all over my lips.

I had seen bunch of videos/ reviews. Where the YouTubers used to say that after few seconds of applying it starts working. It feels like multiple needles on lips, it stings. Some even said it feels like your lips are burning.

In my case, hell no..! I did feel little tingling within few seconds of application. But that’s it. Nothing more than that. Tingling lasted for a minute max. I was expecting little more (thanks to the tons of reviews I had watched before) but it did not do anything much..!

Here are the before and after pictures of my lips. After picture was taken after 7 minutes of application. I can see very minute change, nothing ‘extreme’ in terms of plumping.

Let’s talk about hydration. I must say, it did add good hydration to my lips. I have dry lips. Regular application of lip balm, every hour at least, is a must. But this did add enough hydration. I did not feel any dryness for 3 to 4 hours. It’s a satisfying amount of time considering the fact that I have dry lips and I sit in air conditned environment.

Things I Liked:

  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Transparent bottle makes it easier to keep track of the quantity left inside.
  • Smells nice.
  • Adds hydration to your lips.
  • You can use it above lipstick to add shine and hydration.
  • Applicator makes the application easy.
  • Non sticky consistency slides easily.

 

Thing I Did not Like:

  • Main purpose of the product is not really served. Plumping wasn’t much in my case at least.
  • Pricey.

Repurchase:
Umm I don’t think I will repurchase. In fact I am glad that I went for smaller version instead of the bigger one. I loved the hydration part. But I have bunch of good lip balms which add hydration, with price way less than this one. Plus, plumping did not really worked for me. So I don’t think I will buy again.

MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Body Scrub : Review and Swatch

Scrubbing is a step in skin care, where with a scrub we remove the dead skin cells. This in turn helps in unclogging the pores and helps in improvising health of skin. Just like scrubbing the facial skin, we need to use scrub to remove dead cells from our body as well.

4F431FCC-68A6-4DA4-97CE-EED81A6757E5
Mygirlypedia.com

Note: Facial skin is thinner as compared to skin covering our body. So the scrub which is meant for scrubbing body should not be used on face. The granules in the body scrub can be harsh for the face. Like wise, facial scrub may or may not be beneficial when used on body.

I have always loved the ones from beauty co. Made detailed review video as well. You can watch the video here.

Just to try something new in body scrub, I bought and tried this coffee scrub from the brand . Let’s see the details.

The product comes in a glass jar. It is quite sturdy and heavy. I like glass packing. They look classy. Let me tell you I have tested the sturdiness of the jar by dropping it (accidentally, of course).

I have mentioned this in my earlier review posts, I like the packing with the details on the container, not just the outer packing. Because we hardly keep the outer packing. It comes handy to keep track of the details (especially expiry date) if it is printed on the container containing the product.

Fragrance:
Are you a coffee person??? or at least loveeee coffee fragrance??? This is definitely going to steal your heart. This has a very nice fragrance of coffee (filter coffee to be precise.)

Texture:
It is dry powder.

Mygirlypedia.com

How to use??

My Experience:

Before starting with it, let me tell you I have almost finished this first bottle of mine…!! So I can confidently say have fully tested this product.

To begin with, always use scrub on wet skin. Else the friction when rubbed might cause more harm than good to your skin..!!!

So on wet skin I applied the scrub. Scrub is dry in texture so you might find the need to add a little bit of water to it to make a paste like consistency. I did.

The granules are of right size to scrub the body. They are quite gentle. That’s the thing I liked the most. Plus, it smells heavenly. Coffee lovers are going to love this product for sure.

Post scrubbing, skin usually feels dry. But this didn’t make my dry skin scream for moisture. I can’t say it totally added moisture to my skin, but it didn’t make it worst either.

In short, it left my skin soft and didn’t dry it.

Pros:

  • Smells heavenly.
  • Granules are perfect to scrub away the dead skin cells from body.
  • Sturdy packing.
  • Little goes long way. So a single bottle lasts for good amount of time.
  • Cruelty free product.

Cons:

  • None for me.

Will I Repurchase??
I have a stock of body scrubs from this brand. Once it’s over I will repurchase this one for sure.

Will I Recommend??
Yes. It worked for my dry skin and it smells so yummy.

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.

Useful Sheet Mask Tips To Make The Most Of It

It doesn’t really matter whether you are a beauty and skin care freak or not; I am sure if you live in the world of Instagram, you have seen these sheet masks while scrolling down the infinite Instagram feed. Haven’t you???

IMG_20190205_220742.jpg

You might know the basic about these sheet masks, let me share some of the tips and tricks to follow while using one. I am sure you will find it useful for your next pampering session with the sheet masks.

What is a sheet mask?

It’s a serum infused paper mask.

 

Why sheet mask???

Primary purpose of using a sheet mask is to add hydration to your skin.

 

Sheet mask or a moisturiser???

A good moisturiser adds moisture to your skin (which you all know). But sheet mask on the other hand has serum in it. Which in comparison with moisturiser, easily gets absorbed by skin. Thus, adding maximum moisture your skin needs.

 

Packing of sheet mask

Sheet mask comes in a pouch packing. A sheet mask which is dipped in serum.

 

Sheet masks before CTM or after CTM?

Ideally, it’s the M in the CTM where you moisturise. So, it’s always preferred to cleanse your face thoroughly and then use sheet mask. I personally skip toner.

Never use the sheet mask while the makeup is on or there is dirt on your face. Because adding moisture on makeup or dirt is going to clog pores which will end up in breakouts.

 

How to use a sheet mask?

Unfold the sheet mask and place it on your face. It ha these gaps for your eyes, mouth and nostrils.

 

For how long should I keep the sheet mask on?

Sheet mask should not be used more than 15 minutes. Reason being, 15 minutes is good enough for your skin to absorb the serum. If the sheet mask left more than that, the drying/ dried sheet masks can start absorbing moisture from your skin. So, doing no good to your skin.

IMG_20190128_224227__01.jpg

How to make use of the excess serum in the pouch?

I love layering the serum on my face once I am done using the sheet mask. I also apply serum on my hands and feet sometimes. Ultimately, it’s a serum which adds moisture. Our hands and feet also need moisture, right?

 

Should I wash my face after using a sheet mask?

A big no. Because if you do so, it’s absolutely a waste of time and of course the money spent on masking. The serum which is absorbed by the skin should be left to see it’s magic. If we wash face, the serum will be gone, skin won’tbe benefited much.

 

Should I use moisturiser post sheet masking?

Umm it depends on your skin type. If you really feel the necessity for more moisture, you can. But usually serum in the sheet mask is quite heavy and most of us might not feel the need for moisture.

 

Should I use the sheet mask daily?

Even if you have dry skin, I don’t really suggest you use sheet mask every day. Because sheet mask is a huge source of moisture. Everything should be in moderation. So, I don’t personally prefer to add so much moisture every day to my skin.

 

How frequently should I use sheet mask?

If you have dry skin, 3 times a week should be good enough. If you have normal to oily skin, twice should be ok.

 

How long the results going to last?

Honestly, a day or max two.

 

Special Tip:

If you have oily, choose the sheet mask wisely. As your skin is already oily, you don’t need more moisture. Sheet masks like shea butter, avocado is something which you better avoid.

If your skin is prone to acne, sheet masks which is meant for skin type like green tea should be helpful. They add moisture also takes care of skin.

 

If you want to make your own sheet mask, check this out. Where I have mentioned how to make one at home.

 

I hope you find the post useful. Have any more query or tip??? Feel free to comment below.

 

How Do I Use Nivea Creme In Different Ways

Hello beautiful,

Let’s talk about a very basic skin care product today. Which can be used in different ways. Umm it’s kind of a budget friendly post, where you spend money on a cheaper product and use it for different purposes.

As the heading of the post says, I am talking about this cute little blue tin of Nivea, which I am sure you are familiar with. Pretty more chances that most of you had or have bought this tin somewhere during your local drug store haul. Haven’t you??? If I heard a No, well, you will buy once you finish reading this.

Let me share some of the ways I make use of this little box of magic.

  • Moisturizing:

The prime factor of Nivea is the super moisture it provides. I personally prefer to apply this heavy cream on my elbows and knees. This provides heavy moisture that my elbows and knees need.

  • Under eye cream:

If you have dark under eye area or puffy eyes, all you need is that extra moisture to pamper it. As you might already know, skin covering the under eye area is very delicate. It requires more hydration. Instead of spending more amount on an eye cream, spend only INR 39 to take care of under eye area. 😃 Sounds super budget friendly right… ? 😉

Applying a thin layer of Nivea before hitting the bed at night, should be helpful.

PS : I sometimes use it during the day as well. On under eye area, before applying any makeup.

  • As a lip mask:

Sitting in air conditioned environment??? Huuh… no matter how the weather is outside, our skin and especially lips get dry. I have a quick tried tested tip for dry lips and skin around mouth.

Apply a layer of Nivea on lips and around mouth. Let it absorb for around ten minutes. Take a wet cloth or wet wipe, wipe the cream. This will make sure the lips are hydrated and skin becomes soft.

I don’t prefer using it as a lip balm because it is too heavy and makes lips look visibly white (you know what I mean.)

  • As a foot cream:

Skin covering our feet is thick and needs heavy moisture. Apply Nivea to your feet and cracked heels. Cover it with socks and enjoy your beauty sleep. Wake up with much softer and happier feet.

  • Shaving Cream:

Applying Nivea before using razor will avoid cuts and also leaves skin smooth post hair removal.

  • As a Hand Cream:

I carry this tiny Nivea tin with me while I travel or I’m out. This will easily fit in small clutch or even inside jeans pocket. I have dry hands and that annoys me a bit sometimes. A quick layer of Nivea is what is enough for me to make my hands baby soft.

Special Note:

As much as I love using Nivea in above mentioned ways, I personally don’t prefer using it on my facial skin. It’s heavy and might clog pores which results in breakouts.

Hope you find it useful to replace some of the expensive skin care products with a super budget friendly Nivea tin.

The Body Shop Mango Body Yogurt : Review

Hello,

Body lotion is something which is a must for us, whose has dry skin. As I had promised in my last product review post, I am reviewing body lotions from my collection, one by one.

While picking up the lotion for review, I noticed that I have many products from the brand ‘The Body Shop’. From their skin care range to hair care, I have most of them. #Shopaholic.

So, today the product I picked up is this body yogurt from the brand The Body Shop. These body yogurts were introduced somewhere last year. They have consistency of yogurt and as usual I was very excited to try something from this new launch. tada… I did. They have claimed that it is best suited for dry skin. Let’s see how it worked for my dry skin.

Brand : The Body Shop.

Range : Body Yogurt

What Does The Company Claims:

1) No time to moisturise? Now you do. Our Body Yogurts can be applied straight onto damp skin, so you can shower, moisturise and dress straight away.

2) They’re 100% vegan (we love cruelty-free beauty!).

3) Each Body Yogurt is enriched with Community Trade organic almond milk from Spain.

4) They have a fast-absorbing, non-sticky, non-greasy, gel-cream formula that leaves the skin feeling moisturised for up to 48 hours.

Flavours: Yes, they are available in five different flavours. Trust me, they all smell delicious. Even a friend of mine smelled the body yogurt and she was like, “get me a spoon, I will eat this”. haha.

The 5 flavours available in Indian market are:

  • Mango (Which I loved the most.)

     

  • British Rose

  • Strawberry

  • Almond Milk

  • Moringa

  • Banana

PS: You can click on each image above to buy the flavour you like. 

Price: Rs 845 for 200 ml

Shelf Life: 32 months. Once opened, 12 months.

Best part : It’s cruelty free. The Body Shop has special place in my heart because of their cruelty free products and the campaign they started to stop poor animals getting harmed while making cosmetics. 🐰

Packing:

It comes in this cute, little, sturdy plastic tub pack with all details printed on it. The colour of the tub is in match with the flavour of the product inside. So it makes it easier to recognise the product without having to opening it up. The plastic cap covering the tub is quite sturdy and tight. Thus you can carry it while you travel.

Only drawback I can see in this kind of packing is the hygiene. Because with tube packing you can squeeze out the required quantity of product out and use. Whereas in tub packing, you got to dip your fingers to take out the product. So in terms of hygiene, tube packing over tub packing, always.

Fragrance:

It smells delicious. Are you a lover of mango??? You are going to love this. As soon as you open the pack a very sweet fragrance lingers in air. I must say this fragrance is quite strong. As I love this fragrance, I don’t find it as a con.But girls with sensitive nose might find it little over empowering. Good thing about this fragrance is, it fades away soon, post applying on skin.

Colour:

This is definitely a yummy colour.

Consistency:

This is a gel + cream like consistency. Very light. It is non greasy, non-oily. Once applied, gets absorbed really quick.

My Experience:

I did apply this post bath when skin requires moisture the most. As I mentioned earlier, it got absorbed quite fast and made my skin feel smooth. Which most of the lotions do.

Real test for a body lotion/ body care product comes during evening. Where skin becomes dry again. But for a surprise, my skin was feeling normal. It wasn’t dry as it always does by evening. As company has claimed 48 hours moisture and my skin wasn’t too dry, I skipped re applying it in evening to test the claim. But by morning my skin had become dry again. So, out of my experience, 48 hours might not hold true for dry skin. But I must say it did a good job by keeping skin moisturised all throughout the day.

Pros:

  • Kept my skin moisturised all throughout the day.

  • Light formula.

  • Non greasy, non-oily.

  • Little quantity is enough as compared to body creams.

  • Yummy fragrance.

  • 5 different flavours to choose from.

  • Travel friendly and cute packing.

Cons:

  • Tub packing is quite problematic when it comes to hygiene.

  • Some might find it pricey.

  • Fragrance fades away quite soon.

Will I recommend this to you???

Yes if you have dry skin and no time to re-apply lotion, this one is for you.

Will I repurchase?

Yes. I prefer these kind of body care products while I travel, where I don’t get time to sit and apply lotion frequently. Apply once a day and you are good to go kind. But next time, would like to try out different flavour.

Why You Should Add Rice and Banana Powder To Your Makeup Bag

Hey Beautiful,

Makeup or the beauty industry is huge and interesting. There is always one or the other new trend, new product that enters every single day. Some make the world go crazy, some might not. Some become the trend of the year some become disasters. Today I am going to talk about couple of products I found interesting when I heard about them.

Rice Powder:

The first product I am talking about is rice powder. Ummm as the name suggests it is inspired by the rice powder or flour. Rice flour is a good oil absorbent thus a boon for oily skinned girls. It absorbs the extra oil and thus saying bye to the shiny/ greasy face.

When I say it is ‘inspired’, obviously I am not talking about using rice powder as a cosmetic because if we do so, we will end up looking like a ghost.

There are multiple brands who have introduced this product called rice powder to the market. They come in different colour shades to match different skin tones.

Rice powder is basically lose powder, applied on face for a flawless look. You can say they work like compact powder. Applied post applying foundation. To absorb extra oil and for a flawless, matte finish. So, if you have oily T-Zone, do try rice powder.

Banana Powder:

Even a famous celebrity like Kim Kardashian has this in her ‘makeup must’ list. So, what is banana powder???

Banana powder is again a lose powder but of yellow under tone. This is usually used as a corrector to correct or to hide unevenness of skin. Typically used above the concealer. You can use banana powder as a highlighter as well. This also suitable to be used all over the face post applying the foundation. Banana powder gives you a flawless, highlighted finished look.

So, this was one of the quickest post on my blog. Hope you find it interesting.

The Body Shop Almond Milk and Honey Body Lotion : Review, Swatch

Hello Beautiful,

Body lotion is something which is really essential for my dry skin, especially in winters. Usually I do get tired of same lotion so I happen to try many varieties of body lotions/ creams. I will review one by one of those which I have not reviewed on my blog yet. Meanwhile if you want to know what are on my top of the best body lotion list, check here.

So, today I am reviewing this white beauty from the brand “The Body Shop”. 😊

I still remember the day I had bought this beauty. The moment I entered the store, I could smell this fragrance. I immediately asked the sales assistant their, about this product. She showed me this range of products and rest is history haha.

Let’s see how this product is.

Brand: The Body Shop

Range : Almond Milk and Honey

Price : 950 for 200 ml

Click the below image to shop.

Shelf Life : 3 years. Once opened 12 Months.

What does the company claims?

48 Hours light weight moisture, absorbs instantly. Instantly relives the feeling of tightness and itchiness for sensitive, dry skin. Comforts, protects and restores moisture for sensitive dry skin.

Best part : It’s cruelty free. The Body Shop has special place in my heart because of their cruelty free products and the campaign they started to stop poor animals getting harmed while making cosmetics. 🐰

Packing : It comes in a tube packing, with all the details of the product printed on it. The design of milk, almond and honey looks beautiful. The white tube (sorry I had bought this tube last year and if the tube doesn’t look pretty white,don’t blame me. 😋) packing is quite hygienic as compared to tub packing. You don’t have to dip fingers to take the product out. The flip open cap is tight enough to carry this lotion without the fear of spillage. The tube contains 200 ml of the product. I can’t say that you can carry this easily in your handbag as it might take a pretty more space than any other travel sized lotions. But, it can be a good travel companion if you carry it in a travel bag.

Fragrance : It’s a very sweet and refreshing fragrance. If you love light note scents, this fragrance will win your hearts for sure.

Consistency : It’s a lotion hence it’s neither runny nor thick. Doesn’t feel oily or greasy once applied. Gets absorbed quickly.

My Take: I have normal to dry skin. Turns out really dry during winters. For which, I need a good moisturiser. This lotion claims to instantly relives the feeling of tightness and itchiness for sensitive, dry skin. Which it did. Post bath our skin screams for moisture. I did apply this lotion and as claimed it did relive the dry or itchiness.

But, I don’t really support the 48 hours of moisture thing. Because for dry skin, at the end of the day at least, you do need one more round of application of moisturiser. Even though I didn’t feel itchiness all throughout the day, but by evening my skin was dry again. So I can say 48 hours promise didn’t worked for me.

What I liked:

  • I bought this because of this lovely fragrance.Non greasy, non-runny formula.

Non greasy, non-runny formula.

    • Kept skin moisturized for good amount of time. Tube packing is hygienic.Travel friendly packing.

Tube packing is hygienic.Travel friendly packing.

Cons:

  • It claims that this is formulated for sensitive dry skin. But worked moderately on my dry skin.

  • 48 Hours moisture claim is not true for dry skinned beauties.

  • Falls slightly on the pricier side for the work it’s doing.

Will I buy it again???

Umm no. It did a moderate job on my skin. I have known some other body lotions which worked well on my dry skin with cost lesser than this.

Will I suggest this one???

It might not be a blessing for dry skin but it will work for those who doesn’t have one. If you have extremely dry skin and needs lot of moisture, you can skip this. Others can give it a try, especially the ones who love sweet fragrances and need less moisture to skin.

In Love With This Recent Purchase of Mine From M.A.C

Recently while I was in an airport, I went for a quick shopping at M.A.C just to kill time (Even though I don’t need a reason to shop, I’m always ready with lame one).

I have had heard a lot about these cute lip scrubtious of the brand, so wanted to try them.

Let me give you more details about this tiny box.

IMG_20181116_073308.jpg

Brand :

M.A.C

Name of the product:

Lip scrubtious

Flavor:

With limited flavors they had, chose this Summer Berry.

IMG_20181116_073213__01.jpg

Price:

INR 1550 for 14 ml

Shelf Life:

24 months

Ingredients:

Packing:

The outer white hard paper cartoon has been designed uniquely with the name of the brand printed on it. You can find all the details about the product too on this.

Inside of this cartoon is of contrasting color – black. That makes it slight different than ordinary boring packing.

The inner box containing the scrub is of the same color as that of the flavor inside the box. For example, the brown sugar scrub box is brown, summer berry one is of purple.

The lid is made of soft rubber finish. The black lid is tight so no worries about spillage. The box is so tiny that you can carry it wherever you go.

 

Color:

The scrub is of color purple.

IMG_20181116_073221__01.jpg

Fragrance:

Fragrance is the key factor I chose this scrub. Ahhh it exactly smells like fresh berries.

Fragrance is quite strong for all the flavors. So if you have sensitive nose, please do try testers at the shops before buying. Even though all the flavors smell heavenly, but you know in case it’s empowering, you can skip it.

Texture:

It’s kind of creamy base with minute scrub particles.

IMG_20181116_074420__01.jpg

My Take On M.A.C lip scrubtious, Summer Berry:

I did apply a thin layer of this scrub on my dry lips and left it for few seconds. Then with the help of my forefinger, scrubbed my lips for a minute.

Result? Lips was soft with all the dead skin scrubbed off. Plus, it moisturized my lips. I didn’t had to run for a lip balm post scrubbing.

The salesgirl at the shop also had told me that the scrub leaves tint on your lips. But for this flavor, I couldn’t see a noticeable tint on my lips. But yes, I did observe the tint on my finger post scrubbing. May be it’s not that dark tint to be visible on pigmented lips.

What I liked about the M.A.C Lip Scrubtious:

  • Cute and sturdy packing
  • Travel friendly
  • I love, love the fragrance
  • Creamy soft texture
  • Does the job of removing dead skin cells, very well
  • Leaves lips soft and moisturized

What can be improved:

  • Tub packing is unhygienic. I have to dip in my fingers to take the product out.
  • If your lips are pigmented like mine, do not expect much of tint post scrubbing.
  • The fragrance might be empowering for those with sensitive nose.
  • Some might find it pricey for a lip scrub(Oh come on, it’s M.A.C). But little goes long way. This tub is going to last for a good amount of time for me.

Repurchase and Suggestions:

I loved the scrub for leaving my dry lips soft and moisturized. Once I finish this tub, planning to buy different flavor. Even though berries are my favorite, other M.A.C lip scrubtious flavors are tempting too.

If your lips are dry and would like to’invest’ in a good scrub, then do try this one. You will love the results.

Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Brightening Ayurvedic Face Scrub Reviewed

Hello world,

Like zillion times, I have mentioned in most of my posts that scrubbing is very very important in order to maintain a very healthy skin. As you know, scrubbing is a technique to remove the dead skin cells. As ‘The winter is coming’, it’s better you stoke up your shelf with a good scrub.

I heard many celebrities talking about this Indian skin and hair cars brand called Kama Ayurveda. The brand swears that it is totally Ayurvedic with no chemicals. This is a high end brand with products falling on slightly pricier side.

I was very keen to try my hands on these products since quite long. So thought of giving a try for this beautiful scrub from the brand, to start with(of course I’m gonna try more 😉).

Before I start reviewing this product let me tell you guys, this product is not sponsored by the brand. So let’s just start to get to know how this scrub worked for me.

Name:

Kama Ayurveda kumkumadi brightening Ayurvedic face scrub

Price:

1295 INR for 50 g

Click on below image to buy.

Shelf life:

2 years

What does company claims:

Kumkumadi face Scrub is specially formulated with pure Ayurvedic kumkumadi oil – a miraculous beauty fluid with 12 precious and rare ingredients that help in illuminating the complexion, smoothen fine line and rejuvenate skin cell growth. Our authentic Ayurvedic formula is created with the finest Kashmir Saffron to brighten your skin and repair pigmentation. Finely ground sweet almonds, rich in vitamins E and D nourish and nurture while exfoliating pollutants and impurities for a glowing complexion.

How to use:

Wet the face with lukewarm water. Massage a small amount of Scrub gently on your skin. Rinse well.

Ingredients:

Packing:

The outer cartoon is a combination of colours orange and gold. I just love this colour combination it totally gives you a very royal feel.

The cartoon looks something like this.

That design of lotus and couple of birds give this vintage look. Isn’t it?

All the details like, the shelf life, price, ingredients, how to use everything has been printed on this outer cover.

The glass bottle which contains the product looks something like this. With all the details of the product mentioned on the sticker on it.

Post opening the lid is one more small lid for the double protection for the product to be safe. Hence no worries of any spillage.

If you are thinking the tub packing is unhygienic, as you have to dip your finger every time you want to take the product out, then Kama Ayurveda has a quick solution. The product comes with a small wooden spatula. Which you can use to take out the product and clean the spatula for next use. Thus maintaining the hygiene.

Consistency:

This light yellowish cream has this tiny granules to scrub of the dead skin cells from your face. The best part of the scrub is you can actually see saffron in it.

Fragrance:

It has a very mild fragrance of Ayurvedic oil. Even if you have sensitive nose, I’m pretty sure this fragrance doesn’t going to trouble you.

How did it worked on me:

As mentioned on the cover I did wet my face with water and applied a thin layer of Scrub on my face. Gently rubbed my face to let the scrub work. I usually leave the scrub on my face for a while post massaging. Before it gets dried off completely, I wash my face with warm water.

I must say, in the first use itself apart from doing its primary job of making skin soft, it also gives a good glow to the skin. So if you want to get that glow to the skin instantly, I think you should use this scrub for sure.

Post using the scrub my skin was left softer and cleaner. Usually most of the other scrubs make my skin dry and its screams for hydration. But post using this one, I didn’t have to run for moisturization immediately.

Pros of Kama ayurveda kumkumadi brightening ayurvedic face scrub:

  • Ayurvedic ingredients
  • Travel friendly packing
  • Leaves skin soft and clean
  • Does not dry your skin
  • Didn’t give any breakouts
  • Adds glow to your skin
  • I have used this scrub for three to four times now and I can see the acne marks fading away.
  • Hygienic packing, thanks to the wooden spatula
  • Easily available online
  • Cruelty free
  • Glass packing which is recyclable. Making it Eco friendly packing.

Cons of Kama ayurveda kumkumadi brightening ayurvedic face scrub

  • Some might find it pricey. But little quantity goes a long way and with the positive experience I had, I think it’s worth the hype and price.

So, if you would like to invest in a good product to pamper yourself then do try this scrub. With the results it gives, I am sure you will be happy with your purchase.

Review of The Most Pocket Friendly Kajal I have Ever Used

You guys have seen my review of the most budget friendly eyeliner I have ever used. Today, I am gonna review the super pocket friendly and super cute Kajal I have used so far.

The other day when I had been to a local drug store to buy some essentials, I just happened to see these cute little Kajal packs. I tried not to add them in my cart. But ahhh I couldn’t. You know how much I love eye makeup products right???

This cutie is from one of the renown brand, Himalaya Herbals.

I have used different products from this brand like, body lotion, lip balms etc. Which I really liked. This one is not an exception.

Let’s see why I liked this Kajal.

Brand –

Himalaya Herbals

Price –

Ahh it’s just 45 INR for 1g…!!! That’s why I said it is a pocket friendly one.

Click On Below Image to Shop 

OR You can buy one here.

Shelf Life –

3 Years.

Ingredients –

Almond oil, Castor oil, Camphor, Damask Rose, Triphaia.

Packing –

The outer cartoon looks something like this.

It has all the details about the product.

The product comes in a bullet packing. This is so tiny and cute, can definitely be carried with you in your jeans pockets/ purses. I can say it is pocket friendly in terms of price as well as the travel friendliness.

Outer cap has this green, which is a typical Himalayan product’s green strip with all the details.

Plastic used for this bullet doesn’t seem to be super sturdy. There are chances that it might break.

The transparent tube makes it easy to keep track of the quantity of product left. Plus, the pointed tip makes application super easy. You don’t have to carry a sharpener to sharpen the tip to draw thin lines.

Fragrance –

I love the fragrance of these Ayurveda or home made Kajals. This Kajal smells the same. It’s not so over empowering too. So, even gals with sensitive nose can opt for this.

In case you want to know how to prepare Ayurveda/ pure Kajal or Kohl at home, do check this post.

Texture –

Texture is soft. It glides very softly.

Color payoff –

This is a deep black shade. One swipe is enough to get the dark look. Check the picture of my eyes where I have applied the kajal on waterline as well as eyeliner on eyelids.

Staying Power –

Anyways, company never claimed about it’s staying power. But in general, we do judge an eye product mostly on it’s staying power. Don’t we?? This one stayed till end of the day, like for 7-8 hours. But it did fade. Was not as intense as it was when it was applied.

Does it smudge???

Yes it does. Its not smudge proof and water proof.

I must say, I have so many other Kajals in my collection, for which I have paid way more than this one. But this Kajal had minimal smudge under my eyes than some of the expensive Kajals I own. For the money I am paying, I am ok with this minimal smudge.

Does it gives cooling effect??

Unlike what the company claims, it didn’t give any cooling effect as such.

What I liked –

  • Value for money.
  • Minimal smudge on my oily waterline.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Availability.
  • Color payoff is good.
  • It doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals.

What I didn’t like –

Even though it smudges a little, I am happy with it’s work. For the money I have paid, nothing to complain about.

Will I repurchase???

Even though it seems so tiny, little goes long way. So will definitely buy one more once I finish this. Chemical free, tiny, fairly working kajal, which doesn’t burn my pocket, so why not.

Will I recommend???

Definitely yes. Especially those gals who are taking baby steps into teh world of eye makeup. Who doesn’t want to spend more on eye makeup till they are confident enough. This one is definitely a yes.

Mygirlypedia Rating: 4.75/5 (For minimal smudging I am deducting minimal point. hehe )

If You Are Looking For Affordable and Waterproof Mascara, This One Is For You

Hello,

They say eyes are windows to your soul. Eyelashes have huge part to play when it comes to enhancing the beauty of your eyes.

Who doesn’t love those long, thick, curled and picture perfect(read it as selfie perfect) lashes??? We all do right??? Oh yes we do.

Mascara is that one product that is used to define the eye lashes. There are multiple types of mascaras available in the market, which serve multiple purposes. Like for eg, curling the lashes, lengthening, to make them look thick, to add volume etc etc.

I have tried many mascaras from different brands (needless to say. You guys already know how Shopaholic I am). I recently picked this one little cutie from a drug store nearby, as a part of my ‘random shopping'(you are familiar with this habit of mine if you are a follower of my blog). I loved it so much that I just thought of sharing my experience with you guys, so that you don’t miss this one.

Let’s get to know this cutie more.

Brand:

Maybelline New York

Product Name:

The Falsies. Volum’ Express.

Shade Number:

291 Very Black

Price:

500 INR for 7.5 ml (Buy here)

Shelf Life:

2.5 years

What Company Claims:

  • Unique flexible wand helps to lift and separate lashes to provide the look of more lashes.
  • Patented spoon brush and kera-fiber formula instantly build 8x more volume without clumping to complete the glam lash look.
  • Opthalmologist tested.
  • Contact lens safe.

Packing:

The outer cartoon has all the details of the product. Sorry it’s torn as I forgot to click some pictures before using. I was excited to use this. Hehe.
This comes in a typical mascara packing. The sturdy plastic tube is tiny enough to carry it in your handbag. This makes it a travel friendly product.

Plus, the color is something I like. The ring kind of thing that separates the cap and the tub makes it little more cuter. 😊

Wand:

As written on the outer cartoon, it’s a spoon brush. It’s slightly bent. Which is supposed to give that lift effect the company is claiming about.

The thin bristles defines the eyelashes once the mascara is applied.

Fragrance:

It has this smell of new shoes or something (yep I’m not lying). But you hardly smell it unless and until you bring the mascara wand nearer to your nose, instead of eyes hehe.

Waterproof:

Yep it is. This is one thing I loved the most about this product. The mascaras I have used earlier use to get clumped and smudged. This used to stop me from using them. But this one never smudged. Happy dance

My take On The Falsies Mascara:

The sales girl at the drug store advertised about this product saying -” ma’am, it will give you those false eyelashes look”. I know it’s her job to flatter her customers with the ‘extra admirations’ of the products. Hehe. But after using so many products, I know how these things work. I bought this just to try this out.

But for my goodness, it worked for me. Even though it doesn’t really give you a false eyelashes look, it did defined my eyelashes well.

This smudge proof and waterproof mascara never gets smudged with water. You need a good cleanser to remove it.

About the lift thing,it doesn’t really give you that lift or curled effect. Need to use curler.

What I Liked:

  • It didn’t smudge.
  • Defines my eyelashes. Makes them look long and beautiful.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Affordable.
  • Availability is not an issue.

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Didn’t really give that lift effect. Need to use eyelash curler.
  • If you have really sensitive nose, the smell might bother you while applying the mascara. But it faints quickly.
  • Ingredients not mentioned.
  • Doesnt gets cleaned with just water. Need to invest on good cleanser.

Will I repurchase???

Yes. 😊

Will I suggest this to you???

Yes. For those natural look, without getting flakes, plus waterproof mascara. Definitely yes.

Concealers I Recommend For That Flawless Look

Hello pretty,

In one of my set of posts for makeup beginners, I had included a whole post for this flaw covering product called concealer. Yes,this is the product used to get flawless skin look. It covers skin problems like blemishes, spots,dark patches etc.

Everyone has bad skin day. These unwanted pimples can come anytime. Uhhh. So keeping these concealers handy would be a wise choice.

I do have couple of concealers with me. They are from my favorite brands – Lakme and Maybelline. Which I’m gonna quickly review now.

Lakme Absolute Color Intense Concealer:

There are 3 different shades available.

  • Honey (05)
  • Medium (03)
  • Fair (01)

Click On Below Image to Shop 

I chose the shade 01.

Best part it comes with SPF 20. So, hello summer. 😉

Price:

600 INR for 3.6 g. I bought it from Nykaa for 413 INR. Thanks to the sale with 25% off.

Shelf Life:

2 years.

Packing:

It comes in a bullet packing just like a lipstick. The grey and silver packing is kind of sober yet attractive. The transparent plastic cap is tight but not so sturdy. I had broken it ones. This is my second tube. So you don’t have to worry of any spillage but you should be cautious that you won’t break the cap.

The twist and apply technique is very handy. You don’t have to use any applicator as such.

The transparent cap also makes it easy to keep an eye on the product left. The shade number is printed at the bottom of the pack. Which helps in differentiating the shade.

Fragrance:

It has a faint fragrance of candies. Smells yummy.

Consistency:

The product is creamy. The results or finish it gives is a matte finish. But it doesn’t dry the skin.

Coverage:

This is the main point for concealer. The coverage it provides is light to medium. I can’t say it totally hides the pimple marks, but it make them appear faint. But this is good enough to cover dark circles.

What I loved about Lakme Absolute Color Intense Concealer:

  • It has SPF 20.
  • Coverage is good.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Twist and apply parking is handy.
  • Availability.
  • Value for money. Little goes long way so the quantity of product for the price is good.

What I didn’t like:

  • Shade availability is very less.
  • Second concealer I absolutely love is the one from Maybelline.

Maybelline Newyork Fit Me Concealer:

Shades available:

4 shades are available.

  • Light (10)
  • Sand (20)
  • Medium (25)
  • Cafe (30)

Click On Below Image to Shop 

I chose the shade Sand (20) for me.

Price:

525 INR For 6.8 ml. (Buy from here)

Shelf life:

3 years

Packing:

It comes in a tube packing like lipgloss. The transparent plastic tube is sturdy. The black cap is tight.

The shade number at the bottom of the tube and the transparent pack makes it easier to recognize the shade and the quantity of product left.

Fragrance:

It has mild fragrance of some chemical. It’s so mild that it’s hardly noticed.

Applicator:

The dove feet applicator is soft and Veryyyy easy to use. This makes the application super easy.

Consistency:

It’s a liquid concealer. Not runny though. The finish it gives is dewy and soft finish.

Coverage:

This will last in my makeup bag for long now because of the coverage it gives…!!! This hides the flaws really well. I was super annoyed by the pimple scar I had last week. Trust me it was so dark that it was a good reason to get annoyed. Lakme concealer I tried made it look light. But it was still noticable. Uhh. But this concealer hid it so well. I loved it. So I can say the coverage is pretty great.

What I like about Maybelline Newyork Fit Me Concealer:

  • Coverage is awesome.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Comes with a nice applicator.
  • Doesn’t dry skin.
  • Totally worth the money.

What I didn’t like about Maybelline Newyork Fit Me Concealer:

  • Doesn’t has any SPF content like that of Lakme.
  • Shade availability is less, especially for deeper skin tones.

Which one will I repurchase???

I would definitely go for Maybelline because of its coverage. SPF content is not my concern as I can apply some good sunscreen on it separately. Hehe.

Which one will I recommend???

My recommendation depends on your skin needs.

If your main concern is dark circles and you like products with sun protection contents, go for Lakme.

If you have different skin problems like pimple scars, dark patches, unevenness then go for Maybelline. This gives you a great coverage. You can add SPF product later. What’s say???

I hope these quick reviews will help you chose the concealer for you. If you want to know more about concealer do check this post of mine, where I have explained everything you need to know about it.

I Would Love to Recommend THIS Smudge Proof Eyeliner to You

Hey,

I get lot of queries regarding beauty issues and cosmetics. Which I really enjoy answering to. You know what I enjoy even more??? When they get back to me to say how amazingly it worked for them, when they thank me for that valuable suggestion or remedies I share. Perks of being a beauty blogger includes people counting on you for their beauty and fashion issues. (Some count on me for relationship and life advices too. I think I’m good at it. I should become a counselor.) #PatOnMyBack haha.

The most common query about a cosmetic products is – which is the best ‘smudge proof’ eyeliner according to you.. ??

Well, I always start with my common statement- “Honestly, there is no smudge proof eyeliner as such..” but now I have found one eyeliner which is quite closer to being a smudge proof one…!!! Yeahhhh…!!!

You guys, my dear blog followers, know how much I love eye makeup products. To sum up my love for eye makeup, this is THE post.

In my eyeliner collection, I have multiple products from Maybelline, M.A.C., Lotus, L’Oreal Paris, soul tree and many more. I was quite happy with one of the liner from Maybelline. But, I have finally met much better eye liner now. All thanks to my ‘random’ shopping I did last month.

This is the same eye liner I used for basic makeup tutorial I posted the other day.

Let’s see what made me love this product.

Brand :

L’Oreal Paris

Range:

Super Liner, Gel Intenza

Price:

900 INR ( I got it for 600 INR as there was some offer going on)

Shelf life:

3 Years.

Ingredients:

What Does Company Claims?

Shades Available:

There are 5 Shades available in this range.

  • Diamond Black (It’s a glossy black)
  • Chic Brown
  • Royal Blue
  • Sapphire Blue
  • Profound Black (intense black)

Shade I Own:

I have deep black, grey, brown, green, royal blue eyeliners in my collection. So I thought of trying out deep blue. That’s why I choose Sapphire blue.

It’s a deep blue shade. You really need to look twice to differentiate the color between black and this shade of blue in day light. The color falls pretty closer to the shade black.

PS: You can see the color looks like black in the pictures clicked in day light. I had turn on the flash to capture the real color of the liner. Hehe.

Packing:

The outer rectangular, sturdy paper cartoon looks quite attractive with black and golden combination. There is this transparent section where you can see the eyeliner from outside. #Peekaboo

The outer cartoon contains details about the company’s claims, how to apply liner,price details, ingredients etc.

Now coming to the product’s packing. It comes in glass tub packing. Even though it is made of glass, I must say it’s not at all fragile. Because I have dropped it multiple times. Accidentally of course.

The lid is of golden color,the details of the eye liner is been glued at the bottom of it. In case you find it difficult (this shade is often gets confused to black, so thanks for the lid and the sticker at the bottom) to differentiate, the sticker will help you out.

The lid is tight and the strong glass box is easy to be carried around in the handbag or even in your pockets. So full marks on being a travel friendly packing.

Color Payoff:

It’s very nice. A single swipe gives you a good color Payoff. You can watch me applying the eyeliner here. A single stroke was enough for a good coverage.

Consistency:

It is a gel eyeliner. Glides well.

Staying Power:

Now the main point. Company Claims it can stay for 36 hours. Practically, no one will keep the eyeliner on for 3 days in a row. Unless and until you are a nomad. Oh wait, do they use them? I don’t think so.

So I had this on on my eyelids for maximum 12 long hours. Guess what, this was on my eyelids intact. Very minute smudged lines which can be easily ignored. I was smiling at myself looking at my eyeliner in the mirror, while I went for washing my face at the end of the day. If you are a lover of eye makeup products, you will understand my happiness. Hehe.

Waterproof:

Company Claims it is waterproof. Well I do have some eyeliners from other brands which can be washed off with just water . But this one, my face wash couldn’t clean it properly. I had to use my cleanser to remove this eyeliner. Hence it’s can be applied on the days like if you are going to watch a sentimental movie in a theater or attending someone’s wedding where chances are that you will cry. Hehe just kidding. It is waterproof so don’t have to bother about smudging because of that.

Applicator:

The best part of this product is it comes with an eyeliner brush. You don’t have to spend more money on a brush separately.

The brush has a good grip. It’s short so can be carried easily. The bristles are soft and you can create thick as well as thin lines with these kind of brushes.

Let me film a video about different looks you can create with this brush, soon.

What I loved About L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza Eyeliner:

  • Travel friendly packing.
  • It comes with applicator brush.
  • Color Payoff is good.
  • Staying Power is amazing.
  • It is waterproof.
  • Gel eyeliner, glides easily.

What I didn’t like About L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza Eyeliner:

Some might find it pricey. But little goes long way and I personally feel it’s totally worth the price. So for me – NONE.

Will I repurchase???

Yes. Definitely. I just loved it’s staying Power on my oily eyelids.

Will I recommend this to you???

Yes. To all those who haf asked me to recommend one eyeliner which is smudge proof, this is the one I would love to recommend. It’s totally worth the price.

My Take On Himalaya Face Pack

Hi,

Which is your favorite face pack??? No, I am not talking about home made one. If I have to ask you, which is your face pack from the ones you get in market… which one would it be??? Mine is this one.

Recently, I wanted to buy a new face pack as I was bored with the ones I have. But not in a mood to spend much on one.

I have heard a lot about the brand Himalaya, which is known for its good products with safe ingredients. Plus prices are comparatively low for the quality of their products. I have used their body lotion before. It had turned out to be a good one. So, after looking at different shelves in the shop for face packs, going through different types of face packs of same range which are meant to serve different skin purposes, picked up this one. Lets see whether this pocket friendly product turned out to be skin friendly or not.

Brand:

Himalaya

Name:

Himalaya Herbals Fairness Kesar Face Pack

Price:

135 INR for 100 gm (Affordable I say)

You can try out smaller version for testing purpose too. 50gm will cost you 75 INR.

Shelf Life:

What Company Claims???

Himalaya Herbals Fairness Face Pack lightens and evens skin tone, reduces dark spots and blemishes, reduces visibility of dark circle, nourishes skin and moisturises the skin. It is enriched with natural ingredients like walnut which act as natural exfoliator helping remove dead cells, impurities and black heads. Himalaya Herbals Fairness Face Pack help to clean the skin surface making skin look soft, healthy and supple.

Removes dirt.

Exfoliates the skin without being harsh on the skin.

Made with natural ingredients.

Ingredients:

Seems to be safe…

Curcuma longa (Turmeric, Haridra) Juglans regia(Walnut, Akschota) Crocus sativus (Saffron, Kumkuma)

Packing:

A very first reason to opt for Himalya face pack is, apart from being good ingredients it is also a hygienic packing. The tube packing helps in maintaining hygiene because we don’t have top dip fingers in it to take out the product. Like we do in case of tub packing.

This off white and green combo plastic tube has flip cap. Which is tight and thus it can be carried while we travel. Also, you can squeeze out required quantity of face pack without having to worry of any spillage or wastage.

Fragrance:

Strangely it smells like lacto calamine lotion.

Texture:

It is creamy.

How to Use:

Apply it evenly on face leaving mouth and eyes(obviously. And yes nostrils. Because of the obvious reason haha) Leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Remove with wet sponge/towel. Rinse with cool water.

I am suggesting to use towel because this face pack is thick in texture. Its not easy to wash with water in one go.

My take:

Something that made me pick this face pack is it’s ingredients. Turmeric has antibacterial and healing properties, walnut is good for scrubbing. Kesar/Saffron is the queen of home remedies when it comes to skin.

I applied this on my face. It feels like a thick layer of cream on your face. It doesn’t give you any cooling or burning effect. Just let it stay on face for 15-20 minutes. It doesn’t really dry fast as it’s thick in texture. But let me tell you one thing, a common mistake we all do when we apply face packs. Not all the face packs need to be left till they dry. The idea here is to get most of benefits from face pack not to dry the face pack on our faces. Some face packs, as and when they dry they absorb all the natural oil from your face too…!!!

So post the specified time, tried washing it with water. But washing cream away is not an easy task. Patches of cream are still be there on face. So using a cotton pad or towel would be more handy. Plus using cotton pad or a cotton towel has the benefit of scrubbing also. Thus bye bye dead cells.

Once I had cleaned my face completely, I liked the glow it gave to my skin. Even though it didn’t really last that long, but that instant glow is worth trying this face pack for. Plus it didn’t dry my skin like some other packs and left skin super cleaned. #HappyMe

As per as skin lightening is concerned, I didn’t see much of that. It does add that glow and instant brightening. But no long lasting skin lightening benefits as such.

Good things about Himalaya Herbals Fairness Kesar Face Pack :

  • Affordable
  • Gives nice glow
  • Cleans skin very well
  • Does not dry skin
  • Safe ingredients
  • Travel friendly packing
  • Availability – available both at local drug stores as well as online.

Not so good things about Himalaya Herbals Fairness Kesar Face Pack :

  • Glow doesn’t really lasts longer
  • Can’t clean only with water. Need cotton pads to clean it completely from face.

Will I repurchase???

Yes(but once I finish all my stock of other face packs). I liked the way it adds glow and brightens skin tone in one use.

Will I recommend???

Yes. Its within budget, brightens skin tone, adds glow. I guess it’s a good deal for the price we are paying. Ideal to use before any special events to attend.

Replace Your Boring Kajal With This Sparkling One…!!!

Hello,

Are you a lover of eye makeup products…??? Can’t live without kajal and eyeliners…??? Well, this post will interest you… 😉

It’s time to drop our old gel liners… This year it’s all about gloss and glitters… To add the spark to your eyes, you don’t have to buy a box of makeup glitter separately… Anyways we really don’t get that much time to apply liner and then apply glitter on it… Isn’t it…??

Let’s drop our old liners and get our hands on this sparkling black kajal… Let’s get to know it better… What’s say??

Brand :

Rimmel London

Kajal Name:

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal

What Product Claims:

Shades available :

  • Sparkling Black
  • Black
  • Brown

Shade Name :

Sparkling Black

Price:

345 INR 1.2 g

Shelf Life:

3 years

Packing :

This comes in typical pencil form. A sparkling black pencil to be precise. Need to keep sharpener handy.

The cap is tight. Sooo tight at first that, I had to put all my energy to open it. But, unfortunately I ended up breaking the tip. You will get to know ‘why’ in texture section below.

Texture :

It’s creamy soft. Glides smoothly on waterline.

Color payoff :

This is a black shade. Not the deepest of black. What I love the most is these tiny sparkling particles.

At first, I wasn’t really happy with the amount of sparkle it added to my eyes. But after it got settled on my eyes, the shine was amazing.. Got compliments for that shine too… #blushing

Does this smudge:

Let’s accept this fact that there is no kajal or liner, that doesn’t smudge. Goal is to find a kajal which smudges less. This one just right to serve this purpose…

It smudges very less. Usually I have to bug my friends at office to keep a check on my kajal whenever I don’t get a mirror. Yes I do. They laugh at me but they help me to know whether it’s smudged or not. #typicalgal

Staying power:

Stayed for 6 to 7 hours with a bit of smudging.

Can we use this as eyeliner :

Yes. I did apply this on both on eyelids as liner and on waterline as kajal. It look amazing…

What I like :

  • Color payoff with sparkling black. I loved it.
  • Smudges less.
  • Glides smoothly
  • Affordable.
  • Available online. Hence availability is not an issue.
  • Travel friendly.

What I don’t like :

  • It could have been retractable pencil packing. Because while you sharpen the pencil, you do end up wasting some product.
  • As the product claims its not Waterproof, sweat proof, heat proof etc. It does smudge.

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.

I am 100% free of Parabens, harsh chemicals, alcohol, artificial fragrance and color. The natural goodness of kaolin and aloe Vera hydrate and refine pores, leaving the skin soft and smooth. Extracts of apple, lemon, orange peel and natural fruit enzymes combine together to even out the skin tone and remove dead cells, erasing the effect of the environment. My aromatherapy blend of mandarin, orange and neroli essential oils act directly on winkles, loss of firmness and dry skin conditions thus delaying the signs of aging. I gently purify, soften and enhance the complexion.

The orange colored tube with a white cap is eye catching. Tube looks something like this.

This is definitely a travel friendly packing.

Aroma:

It has a very strong aroma. Smells like an essential oil. Sometimes I do feel it’s over empowering.

Its light and creamy.

What I liked:

  • It does what it claims. It did brighten my face in 1 use.
  • It adds nice glow to face.
  • Leaves skin super clean.

  • Travel friendly and hygienic packing.

20171106_223431

What I didn’t like:

  • Aroma is over empowering. Sensitive skinned beauties do try the testers before buying.

Will I repurchase???

Yes definitely. I can bear the strong fragrance for the good it does to my skin…!! In fact I have already re purchased this pack. This is my 2nd tube. #WideSmile

Will I recommend???

Yes, if you are in hurry and need that instant fresh look, opt for this one. This will add that glow and brighten the complexion withing 1 use.

British Rose, Fresh Plumping Mask Review

Hey,

I have been a loyal customer and fan of The Body Shop. From foot brush to face creams, I have tried different products of this brand. Fortunately some have worked amazingly.

I have many products to review from this brand. Among which, I have already reviewed lipsticks. Which have been one of my favourites. Today, I’m gonna review a face pack which I had bought half a year ago.

Read on whether this face pack falls under ‘worked’ or ‘didn’t work’ category.

There are multiple face packs available in this range.

DSCN0261

 

Brand name : The Body Shop

Product Name:

British Rose, Fresh Plumping Mask.

Price :

2495 INR for 75 minutes

Packing :

DSCN0262

This face pack comes in a sturdy dark glass box, with pink stickers. The lid is quite tight so no worries of the product getting spilled. But, tub packing is unhygienic. Because you will have to dip your fingers in, to take the product out.

Texture :

DSCN0265

It’s a bit runny. Has rose petals kind of particles.

My experience :

As written on the box, I applied a layer of face mask on cleansed face. It’s not runny so doesn’t drip. After keeping it for 15 minutes, washed with water.

I have used it for 3 to 4 times till date. This was my experience every time:

It Hydrates skin. Improves the skin tone. But, the other day I always always get pimples. #sob I explicitly tested this mask once and when the pimples were gone. But every time I ended up getting pimples. This didn’t work for me.

Will I repurchase??

No I won’t buy this pricey face mask again. I have some more face packs which do the same job without any breakout.

Will I recommend??

I don’t recommend this rose flavoured face pack.

Khadi Natural Fruit Herbal Face Mask Review

Hey,

Remember my quick haul with my friend where I had picked up a dud product…??? The product which I’m gonna review today is also been shopped that day…

I have a good collection of face packs. But when see something herbal written on it or something with good packing, I always endup picking it up. So this herbal fruit  face mask is from the Indian brand, Khadi Natural. 

DSCN0254

I had a very bad breakout when I had used their face washes. It was horrifying for me. Those pimples. Phew…

Even though I have bad experience with Khadi products,  I chose to give this mask a try. Read on to know about product and  my experience in detail

Price : 145 INR

Shelf life:

36 months

What product Claims and the Ingredients:

DSCN0252

Packing:

As you can see in the pictures, it comes in steel box. Which can be used further once you finish the mask.

Inside themail box, the mask or the powder is packed in thin plastic sheet. I have removed the cover so it’s not seen in picture.

The quantity as you can see is almost half of that of the container.

PS: I have used this mask couple of times now.

The lid is very tight thus it makes perfect travel friendly package. But take care of your nails while opening

Fragrance:

It has a very mild fruity fragrance. Which doesn’t irritates. It’s kind of soothing fragrance.

DSCN0255

Texture:

It’s color and texture is just like fuller earth.

My experience:

As written on the pack, I mixed the powder with rose water. Made a thick paste and applied it on my face. It does give a little cooling effect. Dries off quickly.

I felt it’s fuller earth just with added fragrance.  Because the after effect was just that of multani mitti. My skin was left clean and oiliness was totally gone. It didnt lighten the spots on my face though.

DSCN0251

I liked the mask because :

  • Packing
  • Ingredients seem safe and chemical free
  • It did left my skin clean and absorbed oiliness.
  • Pocket friendly
  • As it claims, it gave glow, tightened pores and improved skin tone with just 2 uses.

 

What I didn’t like:

  • It didn’t lighten dark spots.
  • It didn’t hydrate skin.

 

Will I repurchase??

Honestly,  I don’t really like smell of fuller  earth. Since it does the same work as that of fuller earth, I will buy this.

Will I recommend??

If you have stock of fuller earth, you can miss this. This is not a must try product. If you are bored with fuller earth just like me, go for this fruit mask.

L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask for Oily Skin

Hey,

L’Oreal has introduced two face masks lately. The pure clay masks…!!! I was very fascinated by the masks, the very moment I saw them on social media. I had to try them out.

wp-1503569198493.

The two clay masks address two different skin needs. So the masks which are available in Indian market are-

  1. L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Purify and Mattify

  2. L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Exfoliate and Refine Pores

If you have oily skin, go for first one. That will absorb oil and give matte look to your skin.

If you have dry skin, opt for second. That will help in exfoliation and purification if pores from within.

The combination skinned beauties can opt for multitasking. That is applying first one over oily T zone and applying second one over dried area.

I have normal to oily skin. So I picked up the first mask, ‘L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Purify and Mattify’

wp-1503569198430.

Let’s see how much it did fair to my skin.

Brand : L’Oreal Paris

Range : Pure Clay Mask

Type : Purify and Mattify

Price : 850 INR

Ingredients :

Packing :

The outer cartoon has all the details of the product you need to know.

The mask comes in a sturdy glass tub. The glass is really of good quality. I have done it’s testing. ( You know how #wink)

The glass is a bit heavy compared to its size. So it’s not that easy breezy type bottle to carry. But you don’t have to worry about spilling, as it has good quality cap and one more plastic coverage inside.

Color :

This mask is light pistachio green colored one.

Texture :

It’s creamy. But it’s neither greasy nor oily.

Fragrance :

It has strong smell of flavored clay. It might be due to the added perfume in it.

My experience with L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Purify and Mattify:

wp-1503569198357.

As written on the outer cover, I applied the mask on my face post cleansing. The fragrance was a bit empowering initially, but it was bearable. The mask had kind of cooling effect and I didn’t feel heavy when it was on.

It starts to dry after ten to fifteen minutes. After washing it off with water, I could see some visible difference. It actually left my skin clean and the oiliness was gone. It didn’t improve my skin tone or lighten the spots. Anyway that wasn’t claimed by L’Oreal too…!!

But the glow was not long lasting. The glow lasts for 3 to 4 hours for me. #sob Again, it totally depends on individual skin types. I use it two to three times in a week. It has improved my skin in terms of controlling oiliness.

Let me sum up my likes and dislikes about this purchase of mine.

Likes:

  1. Sturdy packing.

  2. Did what it claimed. Helped in controlling oiliness.

  3. Easily available over net. I purchased it from Nykaa.

  4. Little quantity is enough. So this will last quite long.

  5. Did not break me out. Did not cause any side effects like pimples or something.

wp-1503568264138.

Dislikes:

  1. Contains paraben.

  2. Glow it gives, doesn’t lasts long.

  3. Fragrance might irritate sensitive nosed gals.

Will I repurchase??

Yes.

Will I recommend??

Yes I would recommend this to oily skinned beauties. It did work on my skin. I hope it does on yours too.

Happy Masking gal…!!!

M.A.C. Cremesheen Lipstick – Pretty Boy : Review

Hey,

Here is the second of three M. A. C. Lipsticks reviews. The most of the information I had to give, I have already mentioned in first one. So, this is going to be a short one.

You know what, the shade I’m gonna review today has an interesting name – Pretty Boy. 😉 let’s see whether this boy was pretty enough to impress me. 😀

As I had mentioned in the review of first lipstick, I have bought these from nykaa. The packing was similar to that of chatterbox shade. You can check the photos of nykaa luxe packing here.

Brand : M. A. C.

Range: Cremesheen

Shade name : Pretty Boy

Shade:

Peachy red. Those who are not comfortable wearing red lipstick, this is a cool shade. It has shimmery texture which gives kind of plump look to lips. Can be carried by any.

Refer the indoor and outdoor pictures of lipstick swatches.

Price : 1500 INR

Ingredients :

Shelf life : 18 months

Packing :

The outer cover and the lipstick bullet have the name of the shade printed on them. Helpful for easy pick of right color.

Lipstick comes in black bullet packing. It looks something like this.

Texture :

Creamy soft texture is super moisturizing. Plus, it has sparkles in it. Perfect for a party look.

Staying power :

Shine does fade with food and drink intake as it transfers a lot. But tint remains for 3-4 hours. Which is quite less for a mac lipstick. #sob

Will I buy this again???

M. A. C. Has plenty of shades to offer. I will try some other color.

Will I recommend???

I will recommend this if you are looking for super moisturizing, cooler red shade M. A. C. lipstick.

Nykaa Matte Nail Lacquer – Blueberry Frosting – Review

Hey,

Monday is here… Agrhhh…

Have you ever wondered, your hands are something which people notice when you meet and greet them. So, taking good care of hands and nails should be in our ‘Check List’. Don’t you think so??

You can check hand and nail care posts here.

Today, I’m gonna review the nail paint which is on my nails, right now. This one is from the brand Nykaa. The online shopping site Nykaa, has come up with their own range of cosmetics. I haven’t tried my hands on their cosmetics yet. But, I own some Nykaa nail paints from their huge collection of nail paints. Let me start with my favorite of them all.

Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel – Blueberry Frosting.

Read on if it’s worth buying.

Brand : Nykaa

Range : Matte

Shade name : Blueberry Frosting

Shade : light purple

Price : 179 INR (Depends on shade)

Shelf life : 23 months

Packing :

Comes in transparent but matte effect glass bottle. To give that matte feel in terms of packing as well. The glass is sturdy, I have tested it by dropping it multiple times. #accidently But, be gentle with cap. I have broken it already. #sad

Applicator :

Applicator brush is soft and of good quality.

Texture :

This is a matte finish one. That means no glossy or shining effects.

My experience :

I must say I’m bit lazy when it comes to nail Polish application. I can apply them but I can’t sit ideal till it gets dry. I always, always end up with messy nail paint. At least on one nail. #Atleast

But, this one has been made just for me. #TheOne Because, it dries up so quickly…!!! By the time you finish applying nail paint for fifth finger first finger’s nail is all dry and ready. Now that’s something I loved about this. You don’t have to sit like a doll waiting for nails to dry. #happydance

Special note: Since it dries quickly, better be quick to clean up the extra ones applied outside your nails, for a neat finish.

You might feel that the price is high for a nail paint. Even I had thought so #confession. But, the finishing it gives will make you forget the money you have spent. I felt it’s worth the money.

Plus – I got lot of complements for the color and finish from my friends and colleagues. #BlushBlush

PS: if you are wondering – why this shade… I love trying out different shades on my nails. Some uncommon colors. 😉 I was wickedly famous for trying out ‘out of the world’ nail colors. #memories

Will I repurchase???

Even though I loved this shade, there are multiple shades in this range. Would love to try different shades.

Will I recommend???

Yes. I have already done that to some of my friends. They are very happy with the purchase. You too try these matte nail paints. 💅

You can buy it from here.

M. A. C. Cremesheen Lipstick – Chatterbox : Review

Hey,

As I had announced couple of days ago, here is one of the three reviews.

Out of the three M.A.C. Cremesheen Lipsticks, the first lipstick I’m reviewing is shade named ‘Chatterbox’.

Let me start with the box I received from Nykaa. Their Luxe box looks something like this.

Inside it, there is this cute pink bubble pack.

 

 

I liked what’s written on it. #cute I say.

wp-1503222258059.

Let’s know my experience with it.

Brand : M. A. C.

Range : Cremesheen

Shade name : Chatterbox

Price : 1500 INR (I bought it in an offer. Buy two get one free)

Ingredients :

wp-1503222257939.

Packing :

The outer cartoon has the name and ingredients printed on it. The lipstick comes in black bullet with brand name printed on it.

wp-1503222257288.

Bottom of both outer cartoon and bullet has the name of the shade. This helps in differentiating the shades and closing the right one from your collection.

Travel friendliness:

Yes. The lipstick bullet is sturdy and tiny.

Check for yourself here.

Shade:

This one is bright pink. It does have shine. Perfect for gloomy days… !

 

 

 

Texture :

Creamy soft.

Fragrance :

Smells like a sweet candy. #Yumm

Moisturizing :

Yes. Totally. It never dried my lips and didn’t feel a need of lip balm.

wp-1503222423653.

Is it transferable?

Yes. It transfers a lot. May be because of its creamy texture.

Staying power :

It stayed for 5-6 hours with food. The shine fades as it gets transferred to cup as and when you sip a drink and to spoon as and when you eat. But the color still remains for 5-6 hours.

wp-1503222423726.

Will I repurchase?

Na. I will try a peach shade.

Will I recommend?

Yep. If you are looking for moisturizing bright pink lipstick, do pick this one.

I will review two more shades soon.

Greenviv Lip Scrub : Review

Hey,

Happy Friday gal..!!! For a change, I am waiting for Saturday instead of Friday. Because Saturday is working day for us. #Sob Sob.

So, today’s post is a lip care product review. You know the importance of scrubbing by now. All thanks to multiple skin care posts on Mygirlypedia. #Wink

Due to dehydration or climatic conditions, our lips tend to get dry. And nobody likes chapped, dry lips…!!! #Uhhh

So to scrub away those dead skin cells, we need to scrub the lips. You might have read my post about home made lip scrubs. But, we might not be able to carry those home made scrubs all the time. Today, I am gonna review a handy, hand made lip scrub for you.

Read on whether its worth buying.

Brand: Greenviv

Price – 199

Ingredients:

Shelf life: 18 months

Packing:
The scrub comes in a transparent, round plastic box. Plastic is of good quality hence no worries of breakage.

Is it travel friendly??
Yes the tiny box can be carried even in the jeans pocket for a quick help.

Flavor:

This one is chocolate vanilla one. There are multiple other flavors available in this range.

Color of the scrub:
As you can see in the picture, its brown one.

Texture:
It has buttery base and has sugar granules in it.

Fragrance:
It has mild fragrance of coca. Smells like a candy…!!! #ChocolateLover

How to Use??
Apply the scrub on wet lips and scrub gently. Wash lips with water after scrubbing.

My experience With Greenviv Lip Scrub:
I liked the mild fragrance and this is not sticky and non greasy. The sugar granules are not sharp or harsh to skin.
But I am disappointed a bit because it does not clean up lips perfectly, even after scrubbing for longer time. #Sob A bit of dry skin is still left on the lips.

Will I repurchase??
Umm No.! I will try some other brand.

Will I recommend???
Its not a must buy for extremely dry lips.

This one can be recommended for those who are looking for non-chemical, pocket friendly lip scrub.

My Recent Haul From Ornate Jewels

Hey,

All the accessories lovers out there…!!! I hope you are listening…

Today’s post is for you… This is the latest haul of mine from an amazing collection of jewels – Ornate Jewels…!!!

At our office, there are multiple stalls that can be setup. The best part is, we the employees, get best offers from those stalls. So, last week a jewelry shop named, Ornate Jewels had set up their stall at my office. Being an accessory lover, I could not stop myself from visiting the stall. And, visiting stall and coming back empty hands, #NeverHappening 🙈🙈🙈

What Ornate Jewels says about their jewelleries:

This exquisite article of jewelry has been certified using hallmarked 925 silver. We use highest standards of manufacturing and follow strict quality standards. For the gold plated articles we use real 18k gold plating. All our products are 100% skin friendly.

I must say the collection was quite impressive. One design was entirely different from the other. Jewelleries were mostly silver ones, few are gold plated one. There were amazing lockets, ear rings, bracelets, finger rings. The options were many for ear and finger rings, pendents. By the time I reached the stall, most of the bracelets were sold out. But, I was lucky enough to grab a girly bracelet. Check out the picture below.

Finishing was really nice. I found those jewelries worth their price.

Even though I wanted buy all of them, I controlled myself by remembering the credit card bills I get at the end of the month… #Sobbing

So, I picked up couple of finger rings, couple of chain and pendent pair and a bracelet for my baby sissy. That’s her Rakhi gift. #MySisterHasBestSister

Check out details of my shopped pieces and what made me buy them. Also, you can find links below, to buy them from their online store.

  • Infinity Pendent With Chain


I loved this ‘dancing diamond’ concept. The diamond inside keep vibrating as and when you move the pendent. When I saw the infinity design, I felt positive. Reminded me that strength Inside us in infinite…!! So I bought it for that positivity.

Price: INR 2899 (After discount INR 1999)

You can buy it from here.

  • Dragonfly pendent With Chain

I have some good memories with these tiny, active insects. My cousins and I used to play with them. They remind me of my childhood days and the happiness of being free. Plus the color combination of diamonds and ruby is so girly. Isn’t it???
You can buy it from here.

  • Ring

DSCN0045

I’m a huge finger rings lover since childhood. I wear eight finger rings, daily. My mom says, “next time buy fingers before buying rings. Because that is what you need now. You have more rings and less fingers”

This one is nice design and I liked it’s sturdiness. Perfect for daily wear.
You can buy it from here.

  • Princess tiara

DSCN0049
Every gal has a princess inside her. The princess inside me deserve all the cute pretty tiaras in the world. This one is for her.
You can buy it from here.

  • Charm bracelet


You must have read my post for my dear sister. So this is her Rakhi gift. She loves girly bracelets. A silver bracelet with glittery stars, her type. She loved it.

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.

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:

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:

Shade Name:

Posie K

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.

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…!!!

 

 

 

 

Kylie Lip gloss Posie K : Review 

Hey pretty,

As I had promised, I’m reviewing the gorgeous Kylie, lip gloss today. The shade I’ll be reviewing is Posie K. The one which I had applied in my yesterday’s OOTD Post.

Read on to know my take on the gloss.

Shade – Posie K

Color – Dark Pink

Price – 15 USD (Excluding Shipping and custom charges)

Shelf life – Not mentioned

Ingredients 

Packing

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

The gloss is packed in a sturdy glass tube. Tube has black melting lipstick design. I like the font of Kylie written over it. It’s kind of cute.  (Sorry for not keeping outer white cover white)

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??

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

Applicator

Same as Candy K.A soft bristled brush.

Fragrance

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

Color pay off

Color pay off is amazing. The gloss is super se*y.

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.
