Lips
Subject : moisturises my lips well
Comment : I have been suffering from dry lips for weeks now. The problem is - I just can't go out without any hint of colour on my dark lips. I have been using my Himalaya lipbalm everyday for weeks now. The Lip Balm Stain, however, does not help much in eliminating the dryness of my lips. I have been seeing a lot of tinted Maybelline Baby Lips in the department store but this New Bright Collection caught my eye. The shades sounds intriguing. This balm glides on very smoothly on my lips and gives my lips that hint of colour. On my lips, a lip liner is a must to make the colour more noticeable. It also moisturises my lips fairly well but not as good as my Himalaya lip balm. I love the subtle scent of these balms. Maybelline Baby Lips Balm has one of the best smelling balms in the local market. Overall, I think these balms will work well to those with light coloured lips. The colour is too sheer if you have dark lip lines like mine.I really think this is a nice product that you can throw in your purse when you're in need of a balm and something that can give your lips a hint of colour.

Subject : maybelline colossal kajal
Comment : one of the best kajal for everyday wear. i love the way it glides into my water line and stays more than excepted. it is very pigmented and water resistance. beautifully makes my eye bold and brighter. i was actually not a kajal person but after using this it totally changed me to wear it daily. its my Favourite everyday makeup. no doubt that i would it again.

Subject : best for everyday wear
Comment : maybelline is one of the brand which is impressive with its quality and the products are mostly affordable. this mascara gives an intense volume on my eye lash as my eye lash is normally so thin and can be barely seen. this helps me eye lashes to get intense volume with one use. i don't have to keep false lashes for volume. i rather prefer using this than using false lashes everyday. its easy to use. definitely would buy again. maybelline has the best quality at affordable price which i am so thankful for as it fits my budget.

Comment : The Colossal Liner has jet black pigmentation. It gives ultra black line just with two strokes. The liquid eyeliner settles into semi-glossy finishing after drying. It takes 30 seconds to one minute to get completely dried which may pose some problems to the droopy hooded eyed girls like me.Maybelline Colossal Liner is not completely waterproof. As you can see in the below picture 80% of it get washed of under stream of water with a little rubbing. The pigment even comes out with my finger if I rub my eyes. After a long day I have seen some of the pigment travelling down to my lower lash line and around the corners of my eyes. It also loses a little intensity after 8+ hours of wearing.f your eye lids are as oily as mine you need to powder around your eyes before applying this eyeliner and also few times during the day.

Comment : the powder comes in a slim glossy white compact, it also has a mirror inside along with a good quality powder puff. The packaging looks very sleek and stylish and the mirror inside make it very easy to touch up with. The compact has a very faint fragrance to it, which is not very bothering. his compact powder is available in 3 shades Pearl, Shell and Coral, I have the second shade Shell which is a medium shade with yellow undertones and hence it will easily match many Indian skin tones. The texture is smooth and not too powdery or soft and does not have fallouts. The powder is fine, it does not have the silkiest texture but it does not feel chalky as well. It picks up nicely with a powder puff or a brush and the application is smooth. In terms of coverage it is more on the lighter side, it does not cover much but gives an even presentable look on the face even when used alone. I really like the bright and matte look it gives to the skin and it works perfectly to set bb creams, foundations and any other bases. It looks very natural on skin and blends in easily. On application it mattifies skin instantly controlling any shine. It controls oil on my skin for 4-5 hours easily and after that I feel the need to touch up. For combination to oily skin it will work perfectly but for dry skin or any dry patches on the skin it does emphasize the dryness and it’s best to avoid dusting it over any dry areas of face and moisturize skin well beforehand. i would prefer buying it again.

Subject : best primer
Comment : Well, primer is something which you apply before makeup as a base so that your makeup stays put throughout the day. The way you apply a primer to your eyes before doing your eye makeup to make the colours pop and stay on longer without creasing and smudging, the same way you apply a primer on your face before foundation but after sunscreen or moisturizer to make your foundation apply more smoothly and easily, last all day or night and stay oil free. It also minimizes the pores on your face. Well these are the things a face. Firstly coming to the packaging, it comes in a clear tube with a nozzle. The tube is sleek but I have problems making it stand upright and because its transparent I can clearly see how much product is left. So overall I like the packaging. Secondly what I like is, you can easily control the amount of product you want, the nozzle doesn’t dispend too much product and it is oil free. Coming to the primer, it is transparent thick gel like texture which is slippery and I think it is because of silicones present in it. On my face it spreads beautifully, smooths my skin and gives an even texture. After application of makeup my face was oil free and fresh in a humid weather for hours together. What I absolutely love about this is that for my extremely combination skin my T zone remained oil free for so long. If you have never tried any primer and have oily or combination skin like mine should definitely give this a try, you wont be disappointed.there is nothing that bad that I wouldn’t repurchase.

Subject : really eyeconic
Comment : The mascara is jet black in color and neither-too-thick-nor-too-thin in consistency. It is a good choice for everyday use as it gives a lovely black color to my lashes. But there is nothing dramatic about the effects of the product. Yes, it gives an intense black finish to the lashes and the smart curl brush makes it possible to apply the product even to the lashes at the inner corners. But it does not add significant curl or volume to the lashes, which I really don’t like. It is also not a waterproof one. However, it doesn’t claim it too. My lashes are almost straight and the name of this product ‘curling mascara’ made me thought that it can curl them at least to some extent without the use of eyelash curler. But it does nothing to my eyelashes even if I use it on them after curling with a manual curler. In terms of volume, a single coat of the mascara is not enough to add volume to the lashes. One needs to apply at least 2-3 coats to make them look thicker. And, once it coats the lashes well, you can expect them to appear visually longer. So, it can be a daily wear instead of a party wear. Now, let’s focus on the goods of the mascara. The first thing that I would like to say is that it has a very smooth formula, which prevents the eyelashes from clumping. The brush can give a temporary lift to them and make them look well-defined. The mascara doesn’t weigh the lashes down. Rather, it gives a very light feel. It dries very fast in comparison with its other counterparts. The mascara lasts really long, say 5 to 6 hours without smudge. After that, it starts to mess though. As it is not water-proof, I can take it off fairly easily with the help of a good quality oil-based remover.

Comment : Gentle and suitable for even sensitive skin types, True Match Minerals is free from oil, fragrance and preservatives and provides SPF 15 protection. With 16hr wear you can have healthy-looking, luminous skin that feels like you’re wearing nothing at all! I use this as my all around foundation. I found that after many attempts of trying liquid foundation that they do not work for my skin, I always come back to this one. I love how light weight it is, my only complaints is that I wish it was less messy to apply and that it was just a tad bit full coverage.
Lips
Subject : completely matte finish
Comment : chambor is an international brand. when i bought the liquid lipstick(432 shade) i was really impressed with the packaging. Though the body is see-through but addition of name is always welcome.The texture of the lip colour is very smooth and lightweight. It is highly pigmented and one swipe covers every bit of the lip pigmentation, if any, I really like how it does not cake up or just sit on the lips like a sticky lacquer. It seems just like your own lips. I would definitely suggest a lip balm underneath to avoid feeling dry after a while. Also, it would be nice if you scrub the lips to form an even base for the colour. The shade 432 is a beautiful warm orange-red shade. It brightens up the face immediately and adds glow to the overall makeup. The intensity adds to the beauty of the shade. Since there are so many reds out there, you might find a dupe of the colour, but the ultra matte texture is something, I am really fond of these days. It can be worn by people of various age groups and skin tones without looking weird. If you are looking for a red with cool -undertones, then this is not for you. Coming to the staying power, I have to admit it was a pain to remove it. It stayed on my lips till the time I removed it with a makeup remover. Once set, it does not move or smudge a bit. Taking it off would require an oil-based makeup remover, else you might end up tugging and pulling your lips. It does not leave back any stain if removed with an oil-based remover. Overall, I would say, Chambor did a pretty decent job. I would have loved to see more fun colors in the range as most of them are more towards neutral. Though the price tag is a bit high yet, you get a good amount of the product and a real long-wearing formula, so the price is justified. only thing is that when you eat something or drink something it just gets smudged all over your lips it looks shabby and embarrassing. i wish it was more waterproof as well. overall i love it.

Comment : we Indian women love using kajal for every occasion. it makes our eyes bold and beautiful. But is that all that matters? well no it has to have a package of all in one elements consist of waterproof, smudge proof,highly pigmented,affordable, etc. does this kajal have all the elements? yes,of course. when i bought it i love the way the packaging was. it was neatly packed and loved the yellow lettering print which attracted me the most.It has a twist up retractable mechanism which is smooth. It closes with a satisfying click, so pretty safe to travel with. And yes it last longer thank any other kajal. it is smudge proof, water proof and highly pigmented. it is must haves in every Indian girl's makeup bag. it is one of the basic makeup wear. maybelline has constantly amuses me with their products. it glides easily on my waterline and the result is amazing!! just one stroke and you are done :) it stays upto 10-12 hours! which is massive boom.The Kajal stick does not break while applying. if you are confused on picking up which kajal to buy, trust me you can close your eyes and buy this with no doubt because it is totally worth buying. go for it!

Subject : matte finish
Comment : I got this shade along with ‘Flat out Fabulous’- (totally in love with). As name says- Relentlessly – This is implacable and unstoppable red.gorgeous eye catching colour anyone can fall in love with. I have been googling Retro Matte shades quite a long time before they launched in india and to be frank the first colour catches my eyes is “Relentlessly Red” followed by “Flat Out Fabulous”. Six months back I never thought of getting MAC products as they are way to costly for me.The Colour – MAC describe it as “Bright Pinkish Coral Matte” with cool undertone. I feel it’s a bright colour mixed of Coral and Red with hint of Pink in it. I love coral lipsticks and matte textures, and this one is just perfect sit for both. Those who love coral and matte texture will definitely love it. It’s a pretty loud coral-red-pink shade which is not vampy but very wearable for those who like bold lips like me. The Texture is Matte, alike other matte Lippies from the collection. But definitely less matte than ‘ Ruby Woo’. I tried this shade first time yesterday and very impressed with the matte texture, despite being matte your lips don’t dry up uncomfortably. Neither it flakes rudely. Stay put on me straight for 5 hours evenly without fading or flaking. It’s even survive meals too. Now that’s a brilliant formula MAC came up with Retro Collection. They are Strong , Bold and Loud colours with perfect undrying Matte texture stay put for long long time.. you might need to touch up after 5-6 hours but just a little. The Pigmentation is awesome. Highly pigmented, opaque finish, One swipe and you are done. Beautifully covers pigmented lips without showing your actual lip colour. I am honestly very impressed with my latest buy- “Flat Out Fabulous” and “Relentlessly Red”. i apply lip balm before applying this lipstick so that we can prevent from dark lips.

Subject : impressive i love this one!
Comment : It is concealer and foundation rolled up in a stick form called Full Cover Makeup for the convenience of use along with SPF 30 which is great as we all love multi-tasking products. Comes in a silver retractable stick form, which is very convenient to use and easy to carry. The stick is sturdy and rotates in well. There are three shades available and I have 02 Au natural which matches my skin perfectly and has neutral undertones with good amounts of yellow to suit Indian skin tones. As it comes in a stick form it is very easy to use.The texture feels slightly stiff in the stick but as soon as it comes in the contact with the fingers or skin it gets super creamy and blends in well and feels comfortable on skin. It feels quite moisturising against my combination skin but for winters I will need well moisturised skin for smooth blending. I like to apply it with fingers as I feel it blends in better that way. It has a very natural finish which soon gets dewy. I do set it with some loose powder to keep it matte and in place for long. I haven’t noticed any breakouts with using it regularly. The coverage of Colorbar Makeup Stick is medium to full and highly build able. When blended well it does not look cakey. It conceals any discoloration or acne marks on skin nicely. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well it covered my dark under eye circles almost completely with a bit of layering and I can totally skip a corrector with it, but it tends to crease quite a lot under the eyes within an hour of application and needs to be set well to stay in place. On the rest of the face it wears well and is quite long lasting too. It lasts for about 7-8 hours on my combination skin. It has SPF 30 which is great but it gives slight white cast only in Flash photography. The price is slightly on the higher side for 9 grams of product but little goes a long way. If you are specifically looking for an under eye concealer then it might not be the best product but it’s perfect for use on rest of the face and conceals pretty well.

Subject : good product and afforadable
Comment : I recently tried Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in Peachy Sweetie and am loving it for a few reasons. First of all, it’s reasonably priced and easy to find. Second, it’s in a handy-sized container that isn’t too bulky to bring in your purse for easy touch ups throughout the day. Third, you can apply it with a brush so you can build the intensity and get a mild flush or something a bit brighter, or you can use your fingers (it says so in the instructions!) to build colour faster.The blush is velvety in texture, not chalky like some other blushes in the same price range. It didn’t feel flaky either and gave an intense and even coverage. It’s easy to apply because of this, and whether you choose to use a brush or your fingers, you won’t need a lot of the product to give you a warm glow. On me, the blush lasted about five hours with me running errands and going in and out of air-conditioned places I suggest you bring the blush with you and reapply during your break and this should last until it’s time to go home.The color of this particular shade is perfect for everyday use. Although the name is Peachy Sweetie, it is actually more on the pink side than peach. For day, simply sweep on a layer or two of the blush and add a couple more to intensify for night. It’s a great choice if you want to mimic a natural just-worked-out glow.

Subject : my Favourite matte lipstick
Comment : I am a lazy lass when it comes to touch ups! I always look up for products tagged as long wearing. So when I saw these new launch of long wearing “Hi-definition” matte lipsticks from Lakme I instantly grabbed one. Today I will review the shade Coral Flare which I picked up from this range. Lets see how well it scored! INR 700 which is slightly expensive but totally worth it. he packaging is really attractive one. It comes in a metallic grey coloured twist up tube with a transparent cap on it which looks quite classy. The shade of the lipstick can be seen through the transparent cap which makes it easier to identify. The bullet is a slanted one like their other absolute lipsticks. Coral Flare is a bright coral-red colour. But it looks more of a bright coral colour on lips than red. It instantly brightens up my complexion. This will suit a lot of skin tones I guess. I do not know what is going inside my head but I am really going crazy over corals these days! Corals are the new pink for me! So this shade is a win win for me. If someone wants to try out a nice coral shade, this will be a great option. texture feels quite smooth on application. It is moisturising but not super creamy. As they are matte so you need to prep your lips with a lip balm before application. It feels comfortable to wear, does not settle into fine lines or emphasise them. It is kind of moist matte in texture rather than powder matte like their 9 to 5 range.This gives sheer to medium coverage. I am a little disappointed with its pigmentation as compared to the other absolute lipsticks. It fails to give an opaque colour in one swipe and looks patchy. You really need to build up the colour with multiple swipes. So it may fail to show up well on pigmented lips. But I think its not the same for other shades.Being a little sheer in colour it tends to fade away after 2 hours. It could not survive the heavy dinner when I first applied it. I had to reapply. But it fades away evenly though. Afterwards I wore this lipstick with a neutral lip liner underneath and it stayed well for 3-4 hours and gradually faded. I would be really happy if it stayed for a little more time but using a lip liner as a base definitely extends the wear time. I recommend this as the colour is really pretty.

Subject : good product!
Comment : If you think that your regular face wash removes makeup, here’s a product that is sure to give your face wash a run for its money. Ideal for women, the Lakme Absolute Bi-phased Makeup Remover combines the cleansing properties of oil with the refreshing properties of water to give you a wholesome purifying experience. Lakme Bi-phased Makeup Remover all I need to do is a give it n a quick shake before using it, wipe my skin gently with it & it truly removes every trace of makeup from the skin within seconds.Though its an oil-based makeup remover what I love about it is that the oil in it is very light weight. You don’t end up getting a thick layer of oil on your skin when you are done. It leaves behind a very thin film of oil which Lakme claims can be washed off with a splash of lukewarm water but I prefer using a mild cleanser afterwards. As claimed, it does not completely rip off the moisture nor does it result in acne prone skin. If you look at the packaging, it’s a simple transparent bottle with a pump dispenser. Honestly this spray dispenser is the biggest let down, when you spray it on a cotton pad it goes all over the place & ends up wasting a lot of product. Also, you need to spray it a fair number of times to get the cotton pad wet enough so that it doesn’t feel harsh against the skin. I even tried spraying it on my face directly then cleaning it with cotton pad but it ended up stinging my eyes. So, spraying directly on face will not work. A simple nozzle opening would have been perfect. My only pain point is that the spray nozzle doesn't spray evenly and ends up wasting a lot of product. Plus I need to spray it a lot of times to get a cotton swab wet enough for application. Also mind your eyes while using this.

Subject : Highly pigmented
Comment : the texture is really, really weird. In a very good way, though! When you press your finger against the product, it leaves an indentation and is rather squishy, almost like jelly. Almost. It has a very unique (and enjoyable!) clay-like consistency that I can’t even describe, and it goes on the skin so smoothly, almost like powder. I feel like it has the consistency of cream-to-powder products, but not too powdery at all. They remind me of the Maybelline Dream Bouncy blushes! Except these have much better colour payoff. I’m probably confusing you guys, I myself am a bit confused about the texture. In a good way, of course. All I know is that these blushes have the most beautiful, smooth, unique and bendable texture of all time. Since these blushes have a creamy consistency, it’s best to apply these with your fingers for maximise intensity. clutch (Matte) is another top favourite of mine! It’s a vivid rosy red and is very vibrant on the skin. You can build it up to your liking of course, but just one layer is vibrant enough. It’s one of the more intense ones in terms of colour payoff. i bought it online. i loved it

Comment : As we all know, Kylie cosmetics and Colour Pop is owned by the same owner. They are manufactured under Seed Beauty Lab. So, I can easily find a dupe for a Kylie lip kit in Colour Pop’s vast range of shades. I wanted to try this nude lip trend without hurting my budget. So, I purchased echo park. The packaging is a pretty standard clear tube with holographic writing on the side – ColourPop Ultra Satin. The bottom of the tube specifies the name “Echo Park.” The tube has a silver cap. The applicator is a standard doe-foot type. The product comes in a white cardboard box with the name of the product and the ingredients list. The shade is described as a “peachy n*de” color and is indeed a very gorgeous, cool-toned peachy-pink shade. If you have a light to medium skin tone and if you are searching for a n*de shade, then this shade is perfect for you. This shade is perfect to wear when you are sporting a dark smokey eye makeup. When you first apply the lipstick, it will have satiny finish; however, it turns matte as the time passes by. You can also blot it with paper if you need an instant matte lip look. The texture of this liquid lipstick is bit mousse-y and liquid-y. The main difference between ultra-matte and ultra-satin is that the ultra-satin formula doesn’t dry completely matte. It dries velvety matte within a few minutes once applied on the lips, so if there are any errors during application, you can easily correct them. The doe-foot applicator makes it easy to fill in the corners of the lips with ease. There is a chemical fragrance to the lipstick which personally doesn’t bother me. Another major difference between the ultra-matte and ultra-satin range is that the latter does not give kiss-proof, budge-proof finish. It does transfer a lot; however, it is very long lasting. It is advisable to exfoliate your lips to get that flawless finish. The ultra-satin formula doesn’t dry your lips and gives a smooth finish. They are the most comfortable liquid lipsticks to wear.

Subject : good product and very affordable
Comment : INR 250/- The packaging is very convenient to use; no messy finger application, just draw the lines with the stick on your face & use a foundation brush for quick application. The texture is ultra smooth and it spreads easily & evenly on the skin.I still need to moisturise my face really well before using the BB Stick. With proper moisturisation, it will work well for dry skin in summers & not so harsh winters but still I noticed some flaking near my temples & chin area because of dryness. The shade Radiance works fine for me and this BB Stick is available only in 2 shades in India – Radiance & Fawn. Fawn is really really dark and I think for most Indian skin tones a shade between Radiance & Fawn would have been ideal. Radiance has pink undertones to it, so it instantly brightens up the under eye area. It works well in terms of coverage too and if you don’t have heavy dark circles, blemishes or visible pores to hide it will work just fine on its own. It gives an almost matte finish to the skin but with a setting powder it will remain shine free for longer hours. It has SPF 21, so it is just perfect for summer days & also it contains Salicylic acid, which works well for oily/acne prone skin.

Subject : natural creamy highlighters
Comment : give Colourpop as a brand high marks for their innovation, quality and performance. These highlighters are probably my second favourite from the brand (The Ultra Satin lips, being the first) and it's for a few important reasons. I love powder highlighters because they're just the easiest to use, but I also love how natural creamy highlighters are. Colourpop Highlighters are definitely a powder formula, but the texture is very comparable to a cream to powder / mousse type of product. They sit on top of powders very well if you decide to apply it after setting your face and they layer well with other highlighter formulas if you are creating a more dimensional highlighted look. I like to apply the shade: Wisp first on the tops of my cheek bones in a c formation, hitting the temples and browbone, on the sides of the forehead, tip of the nose and the cupid's bow, sometimes a little on the chin as well and the lips. and then if I want a little bit more extra, I take a fluffy brush and run the shade "Lunch Money" on top of all those areas to make everything brighter. Inexpensive check. Pigmented check. High quality check. Vegan check. Cruelty free check. I recommend. Absolutely love these. Totally like high end highlighters.

Subject : stunning shades infuse the lips with vibrancy
Comment : looking for low price lipstick? this is the best choice to buy. colorbar is an amazing brand. INR 260/- which is everyone's affordability. For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvet Matte Lipstick infuses the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet semi matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on upto 5 hours on application, the Velvet Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner. The lipstick comes in metallic steel case with a transparent cap. The cap it looks a bit fragile to me.This one is not as dry as matte lipsticks usually are. in fact it is quite creamy and smooth. Unless you have extremely dry chapped lips it won’t really accentuate the fine lines on your lips. It does settle a bit in the fine lines after couple of hours but it doesn’t look that bad either. So I’d say exfoliate and moisturise lips well before applying matte lip colours.Highly pigmented bright lip colour. It is more towards coral orange than peach (just a hint of peach I’d say ) but nevertheless it is a gorgeous colour. It doesn’t look as bright in the lipstick case as it does on the lips. It brightens up my face instantly.better than any other lipstick at this rate. i would definitely buy it again .

Subject : love for huda beauty lipkits
Comment : I heard a lot of great things about Huda Beauty Liquid Matte and of course It feels the rising need to get my hands on this sought after lippies immediately.. I tried tons of matte liquid lipsticks before so it's kind of hard to please me... According to their official site, the Liquid Matte is non-drying, featherweight, densely pigmented with a stunning, suedette finish. The silky formula applies like a lip gloss then dries in moments, cloaking your pout with a smooth, kiss-resistant veil of vibrant colours that won't smudge, flake or transfer. infused with antioxidants and an exclusive complex to help maintain lips hydration, the lightweight liquid lipstick promise to beautify your lips for hours without compromising comfort. Comes in 20 different shades from timeless nudes, feminine pinks, deep reds and 90's brown, Huda Beauty Liquid Matte can be used alone or combined to create your own unique style. You can also paired it with Huda Beauty Lip Contour to set off your look.the packaging first, I have nothing but love for the sexy lips box it comes with. It's pretty to look at and insta-worthy too. The frosted glass tube is lovely as well, it's travel friendly and display the shades nicely. The wand is not exactly my favourite but I think I can live with that. Another thing that I like about the Liquid Matte is their vanilla cupcake scents, it's not as overwhelming as I expected them to be but sadly disappear within minutes. Huda Beauty Liquid Matte is one of the best in the market. The only explanation I can think of is perhaps I got the bad batch for that particular shade because the rest of them are amazing! it's a great addition to have especially if you're into matte liquid lipstick.

Subject : THIS PALETTE IS AMAZING!
Comment : For the price you pay, you might think it's not that great but be ready to be mistaken. This is such a great palette full of amazing everyday colours. I've used it for a while now and I just started to really use it and it's absolutely amazing. I love the shimmery shades. They are what give the palette life. The pigmentation of the shimmery shades are just fabulous. I adore the shimmery shades. They are my favourite in the palette. I did, however, have a problem with the matte shades. They weren't much pigmented at all. I was very disappointed with the matte shades. I expected so much more from them. The shades look so beautiful but it's sad that the pigmentation on these shades aren't the best. BUT, I definitely love the shimmery shades and I think they make up for the matte shades. This palette is amazing for beginners. My personal favourite shades are the white shade in the top left corner which is good for a basic look with some black liner or the bronze shade third from the left which is better for a bold statement. Shades work blended together (though this may take a bit of practice) or on their own. I would recommend it definitely just because of the gorgeous shimmery shade.

Subject : so pleased with the application
Comment : I didn't expect much but i completely fell in love. The packaging is super pretty but you do get less product than the Jeffree Star lipsticks. Very easy to apply with a basic doe foot applicator and dries to matte extremely fast. Once dried these are so smooth on your lips you can completely forget you are wearing lipstick although sometimes the inner part of your lip can get a little dry feeling and get some wear there where it gets wet from your mouth. They do have a weird scent mine are unscented and smell very strongly of play-dough. The colour payoff is amazing these are really pigmented and you don't need to layer them just one layer and you will have amazing lip colour for hours. If you avoid eating these will last much longer some little snacks are okay but anything oily will cause it to come off. They have a great range of shades and I've only got 3 of these so far Cement, Squash and Pumpkin but i will continue to buy more because i am so pleased with the application, pigment and lasting power. Also vegan and cruelty free which is awesome! I rate these 2nd in my top liquid lipsticks behind Jeffree Star.

Subject : love it!
Comment : Maybelline is one of my favourite drugstore brands. This liner is amazing ordered this eyeliner on Amazon! Bought this in the shade darkest black!! It gives a deep black colour which gives a nice definition to your eyes.This is a nice product with a great formula. It is long lasting as it claims but does smudge away if you rub your eyes vigorously. like the applicator, they give with it but it needs to be cleaned every time after application!!This liner is 100% waterproof and smudge proof.The only problem I had with this is that it dried out even before I reached halfway of using the product. I use liquid liner the most and not always get my hand on the gel ones.not very suggestive for beginners. The brush that comes along with this gives you precise application if you have good hands with using the brushes for eyeliner. The brush needs to be washed after application or it tends to dry out and become hard. Tip: If your gel eyeliner dries here is that what you can do: Heat the water (not boil) and take it off from the stove. Now place your gel pot inside it for 20-30 mins and it will be good as new.

Subject : matte finish
Comment : Ok, i have the lippie stix in two shades - Frenchie and Heart On. I've read many reviews before deciding to buy them. And one of 'issues' claimed was the scent. There were people claiming they can't use it anymore because of the scent. For the price point, I don't care that they didn't bother with infusing a rose scent. Heart on is a blue-based hot pink or magenta. I do love the pop of colour it gives - fun and youthful. Frenchie is a sexy orange-red that sears. Packaging - plain, white stick. Very basic and clean. Both are matte formulas. I must say that the formulas are not as drying as the ultra matte liquids. (I had a bunch of them that I sold away because I couldn't handle the dryness) It felt comfortable on the lips and did not make them look shrivelled up like dried prunes as the ultra mattes did. But.... it clung to dry patches and accentuated them. So, you might want to think about that if u don't like the idea of exfoliating and moisturizing before applying this.It's super opaque and it lasts a decent amount of time before you have to reapply (3 hrs max in my experience before reapplying). I think this would look good on any skin tone! Save yourself some money and buy this lippie stick and pencil, you will not regret it! .just try it :)

Comment : I have been using this mascara for past few days and I like it. A really good mascara for daily use. Curls the lashes well and also doesn’t smudge at all. The brush is also nice and slants to give those long fuller curled lashes. All in all worth every penny. Must but for those with fine lashes and it definitely gives the appearance of fuller lashes. A great daytime mascara when you don’t want too much going on but would want some definition to your eyelashes. It stays on all day long on me. I mean I have applied this mascara and have gone out, cooked, splashed water on my face but it doesn't go off until I remove it. It does not weigh down my eyelashes. Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Mascara holds up the curls for around 6 hours. It does not flake or smear. Also, it is not a pain to take off, unlike a few waterproof mascaras. Have never stung my eyes. It has very little clumping but I am kinda ready to forgive that much. The formula is neither too thick nor too dry. It does give you enough time to coat your lashes nicely before it dries. I didn’t feel any hardness on my eyelashes even after hours of wearing it. The shape of the brush is a little curved so it curls my lashes even without using a lash curler. The short bristles coat every lash nicely. Directions for use: Move brush upwards from root to tip to plump individual lashes and achieve dramatic volume. Continue applying to lashes until you reach your desired look. Do not let it dry between coats. Repeat for lower lash line. it is adorable and stays up to 18 hours.

Comment : I genuinely don’t think any other brand’s eyeshadows compare to the quality of Urban Decays. containing more beige-based shades than the original Naked Palette. All shades blend very easily and they are pigmented too. I use this pallet for everything like contouring, highlighting or if I want a metallic finish lipstick.It was a bit on the pricey side, but I got it as a gift for my birthday and I've bought two Naked palettes since. I do love a good taupe shadow or liner so the Naked 2 Palette was just too good to resist.The case has an art-school inspired look with hinged lid taupe metal with embossed chocolate brown artwork. It's smooth, modern and cool to the touch, it’s also a lot more sturdy compared to the first Naked palette. They have really tried to make this palette as travel-friendly as they can. I love the fact that you can use your naked palette all day every day for the office look, party look, brunch with friends etc. PROS: 1. Wonderful selection of shades 2. Great colour payoff (for most shades) and applies well. 3. Comes with a double-ended shadow brush. 4.Comes with a generous mirror. 5. Wonderful and unique packaging! 6. Comes with four primer samples (UD primer potion). CONS: 1. A couple of shades need to be packed on because they lack pigmentation. 2. Very expensive for a palette with 12 shadows only. 3. Noticed some fallout. 4. Some shades feel chalky. Need to tap off the brush. 5. Shadows crease a bit even with primer on but that must be because I have oily lids and live in the tropics!

Comment : So far, my all-time favourite mascara! ?I am always in search of the perfect mascara. I have straight, thin, somewhat long lashes. This is a great mascara for those who have, like me, really straight lashes that grow down. It will hold your curl and separate your lashes beautifully. Plus, it's easy to build without making eyelashes look spidery or gloppy. If you're leary of waterproof mascara, just get yourself some olive oil on a cotton round, place it on your eye, hold it for about 15 secs to allow the oil to break down the product and, voilá! Just use your preferred facial cleanser and done. Great everyday mascara that will make miracles happen with your lashes & you will continue to buy because you will love it so much. I've literally gone through 10 tubes and planning on continuing to purchase. It's the best! I definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to find a new mascara. With super sensitive eyes, this mascara has been my saving grace. thinking of the best mascara ever? you got to try this one. well, loreal always looks into the product's quality and its affordability. looking for volume? this is the best one you can get

Subject : it's worth it
Comment : It is a double stick that on one side has an illuminator and, on the other, product to make the contour. Each one with clear plastic lids that already show some crack of so much use. Each part contains 4g of product, which is usually the amount that comes in any lipstick. It seems to me enough for the stick to last us a long time even if we use it daily. The part of the illuminator has a pink beige tone very clear to be able to give points of light in the upper part of the cheekbone, septum and tip of the nose, upper area of the arch of the eyebrow and bow of Cupid. The bars have finished shape in tip, which makes precise application of the product. The part of the contour is a brown tone too warm for my taste since it makes that the shade that we realize with him is a little orange and is not natural at all. In this case, the bars end in a rounded shape. I usually apply it where the bone of the cheekbone sinks, at the birth of the hair and in the jaw, to make it optically more oval. In conclusion, it is a product that I find very practical to use and transport when coming to both products in one. The application and diffusion are fast and we can enhance its effect or result with illuminators and powder bronzers if we want. I'm using it daily and except for the somewhat orange outline of the outline, I think it's worth it.

Comment : I've worn this brand of nail polish since high school, and even though I experiment with everything from high end to store polish, I keep coming back because nothing resists chipping longer. Topped with Revlon Extra Life No Chip Top Coat, I usually get 10 to 12 days out of my manicure with occasional touch-ups. (I've gone 14, but it looked pretty rough.) If you're new to this polish, be aware that it takes much longer to dry than thinner polishes like Essie or even OPI. The extra time is worth it in my opinion, though, because it lasts longer.

Comment : I use this on my lips and anywhere. i have a combination skin. it is very affordable for anyone to buy. I use it on my lips at night and works like a charm. Its effectiveness surprised me at first and it is actually very gentle on my skin. Even as a waterproof eye makeup remover and it also helps w dandruff. Vaseline can be used for many things. Its the best moisturiser.
