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

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.

Is Almond, Milk and Honey Shower Cream from The Body Shop A Best Pick???

Hey pretty,

Who doesn’t like a long shower or relaxing bath…!?? We all do. I know not everyone has the privilege of enjoying a long bath in a bath tub. (nor time to enjoy it every morning)… Least we can do to enjoy the bath is to chose a nice aromatic bath gel or a bath cream. Usually post bath, our skin scream for more moisture. Choosing a moisturizing shower cream would be a wise idea.

The other day I had been to The body shop outlet in Westend mall Pune to do a mini haul. Since I was bored with the shower cream I was using, I picked up this one. Only point which made me pick this up was its fragrance. It’s a sweetest fragrance. Smells like sweet candies.

Well, did it any good to my skin??? Read on…

Brand:

The Body Shop

Flavor:

Milk, almond and honey.

Price:

495 INR For 250 ml

What Product Claims:

Calm as you cleanse with this gentle, soap-free shower gel – specially formulated to respect your skin’s natural moisture barrier and pH. This gentle formula won’t strip your skin of moisture. Enriched with organic almond milk from Spain and Community Trade honey from Ethiopia, Almond Milk & Honey is specially formulated for sensitive, dry skin.

  • Calming and caring shower cream
  • Leaves skin feeling soft, clean and cared for
  • Suitable for sensitive, dry skin
  • Made with almond milk Enriched with Community Trade honey and almond oil
  • Hypoallergenic fragrance
  • Dermatologically tested
  • Enriched with community trade Almond Milk from Spain

Packing:

Comes in a transparent sturdy plastic bottle. Transparency makes it easy to get to know the quantity left inside.

The flip open cap is an advantage. As you can squeeze the bottle and get required quantity of cream out.

The cap is quite tight so no worries of spillage.

PS: in the past I have used many shower gels from The Body Shop. If you drop the bottle down, you might end up breaking the cap. Thus making it difficult to carry while you travel.

Till you break it, you are good to carry this with you while you travel.

Color :

White

Texture :

Creamy

Fragrance :

This is a typical the body shop fragrance. This the fragrance you smell when you enter the shop.

This is a fresh candy fragrance, neither light nor empowering fragrance.

Does it lathers well :

Not really. That’s the major difference between a shower gel and a cream. Shower cream is thick in texture thus doesn’t lather as good as a gel does.

Is it moisturizing :

Yes shower creams are moisturizing than a gel. This one is moisturizing. Post shower it doesn’t makes my skin dry. But you do require a good moisturizer post bath in winters. For summers a lighter body cream will do.

Does the fragrance lasts for long :

No. This is a turn down. Post bath also I could hardly smell that sweet fragrance.

Will I repurchase?

For the fragrance while bathing, may be yes.

Will I recommend???

Yes to those who love candies’ fragrance.

This is What I Have to Say About Sunny Leone’s Liquid Lip Color

Helloo,

Sunny Leone – A woman who doesn’t really need an introduction. Half of the world, I mean half of the men in the world worship her beauty and women are either jealous of her beauty or appreciate her beauty and courage to start life all over again. Between, now she is not only a Bollywood film star, also a proud mommy of three kids…

Well, I am impressed by her for two reasons.

One – It takes hell lot of courage to come out of such industry and start a new life. That too in a country like India where everyone is good at nothing but judging people.

Two – Even after being one of those ad*lt star, she has preserved her innocence. I have seen couple of her reality shows on television. She is so cute and inspiring. The way she inspires people by her words is amazing.

Last year she started with her clothing line and perfume line. Recently started with her makeup line.

IMG_20180322_184638.jpg

It includes only my favorite cosmetics – Lip products. Yeahhhh…. !!! I was anyways impressed by her lip makeup in the reality show – Splitsvilla.

Lip products are – lip liner, Lipstick and lip gloss.

Being one of crazy lip product fan, bought lip gloss on Monday evening.  Just to wash away those nasty Monday blues. Received it on Wednesday. Quite impressed by the speed delivery.

Name :

Star Struck By Sunny Leone

Available Shades:

There are five shades of lip liner, lipsticks available. Below are the shades.

Shade I Bought:

Baby Doll

IMG_20180322_184622.jpg

Price:

799 INR

Ingredients:

IMG_20180322_184615.jpg

Packing:

The outer cartoon is of color combo – black and silver. Ingredients, price details are printed on it along with name.

The lip color comes in a typical plastic tube pack, with an dove feet applicator. The plastic used is sturdy and transparent. So you can identify the shade easily.

But I am not really impressed with the packing. The opening of the plastic tube is not tight enough(at least the one I have received.)

IMG_20180322_142407.jpg

Due to which it has become so messy…!!! This opening is typically for closing the cap tight and removing the extra product from the applicator wand. Look how messy it looks in the picture.

IMG_20180322_142457.jpg

Hence, I cant say it is travel friendly as there is leakage of product from the pack

Shelf Life:

3 years

Fragrance:

Smells like butterscotch candy. Fragrance is similar to that of Kylie glosses.

Texture:

It is soft. Glides easily.

IMG_20180322_143133.jpg
My ‘Pouting’ Skills Aren’t Up to the Mark…

Color:

It’s a peach shade. Can be carried by anyone without being conscious about the shade.

Color Payoff:

It is good not best. Single swipe is not enough for pigmented lips like mine. You need at least couple of layers to get that full coverage.

Is it Moisturizing?

Yes. It doesn’t dry my lips.

Does it Transfers?

Yes. It did transfer a bit.

Staying Power:

It stayed on lips for an hour approx.. Post that the glossiness was gone and a faded tint was left on my lips. Overall it stayed on my lips for 2.5 hours approx. (I had actually noted down the timings this time.) It’s very less I know. Because I have glosses and liquid colors from other brands which stayed on my lips more than 5-6 hours.

Pros:

  • Availability
  • Didn’t dry my lips.
  • Nice shade.
  • Sweet, mild fragrance.

Cons:

  • Not a travel friendly packing. (at least the one I received is not.)
  • Staying power is less.
  • Contains paraben.

Will I repurchase???

No. I didn’t find it worth the money.

Will I recommend???

No. I have plenty other from my list which I would love to recommend. But not this one.

This Eyeliner With Smudger from L’Oréal Paris – Great Pick or Not…!!!

Hey,

You know there are advantages of being a shopaholic… 😉 By spending more than 5k per year on Nykaa, I have become a Prive member. I love the queen tiara icon we get against our name in Nykaa account. It’s like we are being crowned as a shopaholic queen. 👸

So, perks of being a member is, we get different discount coupons. A birthday gift on our birthdays. I might have missed mentioning this, but I had received a beautiful makeup bag last year on my birthday, from Nykaa.

Since I have 6 coupons for free shipments which are valid till this month end, the shopping Addict gal inside me thought of making most of it. Hence ordered items below 500( Amount eligible for free shipping) separately. Mostly I have ordered my favorite makeup i.e. Eye makeup products.

Today I’m gonna review one of those products. Eyeliner from L’Oreal Paris.

What made me choose this one??? It has smudger with it. Which we can use to smudge the kajal or eye liner to get Smokey looks.

Let’s see whether I liked it or not…

Brand:

L’Oreal Paris

Name:

L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Smoky Eyeliner

Price:

650 INR ( I got it for 480 something, after discount) for 1.2 g.

Click On Below Image to Shop

Shelf life:

28 months.

What Company Claims:

Packing:

It comes in a typical eye pencil packing. Color combination of the pencil being black and gold, it does look attractive. What makes it different is it is dual sided. One side the kajal and the other side is smudge brush or smudger.

Both sides have tight lids or caps, which are transparent. This makes it easy to differentiate between the kajal and smudger without having to open the caps to check.

Shades Available :

There are six shades available in this range.

  • Black Velour 201 (Black)
  • Mystic Grey 202 ( Dark Grey)
  • Brown Fusion 204 (Brown)
  • Stormy Sea 207 (Teal Green)
  • Antique Green 209 (Green)
  • Purple Dream 211 (Purple)

Shade I Picked:

Mystic Grey 202 – It’s a dark Grey. Falls towards black shade.

First stripe is without using a smudger. Second with couple of strokes of smudger.

Texture:

Creamy soft. Glides softly. Finishing is a matte finish one.

Smudger:

It is made up of soft rubber. A dome shaped smudger helps in smudging the kajal on waterline and eyeliner over the eyelids. Since this is soft, it glides along the waterline easily and does the job fairly well. Hence it saves your money in terms of buying a separate smudger brush.

My Take:

After looking at the reviews on Nykka, written by the customers who had bought this before, I finalized this one. It had worked on them. At least they have said it did. But it’s not the case with me.

As I said, it’s creamy thus making it easy to apply. The smudger is soft yet efficient. But, what turns me down is its staying power. It smudges very fast and looks bad. There is no way I could keep it smudge free.

If the eye product bleeds or smudges I don’t think it stands any chance to be a good product.

Good thing is the smudger. This works well. You can use this brush to smudge any other kajal or kohl, which you want to play with in order to create Smokey eye looks.

Things I liked About L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Smoky Eyeliner:

  • Packing is travel friendly.
  • Smudger is quite useful.
  • Creamy texture.
  • As company claims, removal of this product from eyes is easy.

Things I Didn’t like About L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Smoky Eyeliner:

  • Pricey.
  • Smudges a lot.
  • Claim of ‘long lasting’ is not true. Staying power is very less.
  • Retractable pencil would be more useful as the sharpening pencil results in wastage of product.

Will I Repurchase??

No. It didn’t work for me. Hence a bigg No. Instead of spending this much, I will buy some other eye products I know which cost less and does amazing job.

Will I Recommend??

Umm not really. On the basis of my experience, no.

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 am gonna stop lipstick shopping for a while now…!!! 

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.

Price:

INR 850 for 8 ml

Shelf Life:

29 months

Shade:

Its a mixture of red and peach.

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

Texture:

Its a bit heavy for a gloss.

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.
