Face
Subject : Review: Maybelline Fit me Matte+Poreless Foundation
Comment : MAYBELLINE FIT ME MATTE+PORELESS FOUNDATION is a great everyday foundation that you need in your life 1)Gives a medium buildable coverage. Blends easily with brush, fingers and beauty blender! 2)Liquid consistency 3)Glass bottle without a pump so not a very hygienic bottle. Plus I do feel the cap can come off loose so not very travel friendly. 4)Lasts for 4 hours without setting spray! And over 6 hours if used with a great primer,setting powder and spray 5) First time I used it , it broke me out! But on consequent uses- it was fine. 6) Specially great for matte effect during humid days. 7) Must have for oily skin beauties 8) Decent Shade Range for most Indian skin tones! 9) Affordable and works great! Will definitely recommend you and will buy again!

Subject : Review: Lakme Absolut Mattreal Mousse Foundation
Comment : Lakme Absolute Mousse Foundation is of a very unique consistency! It has a mousse texture which blends seamlessly into your skin. 1)Coverage is very sheer! Almost works like a light BB cream. 2) Mousse Texture blends like a dream. 3) I love the packaging. It's small and cute and extremely travel friendly. It's my go to foundation when travelling. 4) Good enough for everyday day time use. But the coverage isn't enough for night time events and functions. It also gives a little flashback which looks weird in flash photography. 5) Lasts for 3-4 hours without primer or setting powder/spray. With a good compact it lasts much longer. 6) Blends best with fingers. Totally fades out with beauty blender or brush blending. 7)Not very affordable+Sheer coverage+Gives flashback! You can skip this one.
Face
Subject : Review: Lakme Invisible Finish foundation.
Comment : This is a great everyday use foundation. I use it specially for night time because it gives a good buildable coverage and no flashback so can be used for night time flash photography. -Not a very good shade range for Indian Skin Tones. -Glass bottle packaging with a spatula. Not very hygienic+not extremely travel friendly because of the glass packaging. - Liquid consistency. Blends best with beauty blender! -Totally affordable! So if you find your shade, totally go for it. -Will recommend to others and buy again.

Subject : Review: Loreal Mat Magique compact
Comment : I love this compact. It's my favourite one I've ever used till now. 1)Packaging is very sturdy and travel friendly. My only problem is the mirror is below the compact pan. 2)Coverage is medium. Makes my foundations lasts for 6 hours easily. I also use this on its own many times. And it gives a matte sheer to medium coverage finish. 3) It's very affordable and perfect to carry around everyday in the bag for touch ups. 4) Would definitely recommend this to everyone and would buy this again.

Subject : Review: Revlon Colorstay Concealer
Comment : This is my holy grail concealer. I have the shade medium. Thick consistency. Comes in a glossy tube packaging. Gives high coverage. Lasts super long. Blends so easily with the full coverage intact. I usually just put this on and set it with my compact. I use this everyday to cover my dark circles plus acne marks. It lasts me all day to give my skin the flawless look. Love it.
Face
Subject : Must Have for Oily Skin Beauties
Comment : This is a wonderful must have product for Indian summers specially if you suffer from oily skin problems. It’s a loose powder that has multiple purposes. You can set your face makeup with it, you can bake with it, or you can just dust some on your bare face and it will keep the sebum away for a good amount of time. On its own it even gives a matte blur effect to the skin. It’s absolutley translucent and doesn’t leave any colour or white case behind. On top of that it’s so finely milled and smooth. A little goes a long way and even the tiny cute bottle is travel friendly and you can carry it anywhere for touch ups. Definitely a huge thumbs up from my side.
Lips
Subject : The most opaque liquid lipstick I’ve tried
Comment : I was never really into liquid lipsticks but after getting obsessed with the matte finish and the pigmentation- it’s safe to say I love liquid lipsticks. Having said that this range by sugar has probably one of the best pigmentation I’ve seen from any Indian Brand but but but it’s tooo drying and becomes powdery and uncomfortable after a few hours. If you are someone who likes the super matte, opaque finish go for it. But if you’re like me who likes comfortable matte finishes- you can skip this one. I agree the colours are gorgeous and the shade range is amazing as well. Probably great to wear at functions and all. Not comfortable enough for everyday wear.

SKINCARE REVIEWS


Cleansers
Subject : Review: Himalaya Neem Face Wash
Comment : This is my favourite go to face wash of all time! I have been suffering from acne since childhood and this face wash has helped me overcome my acne woes. It doesn't dry my skin out and makes my face feel totally clean. It's gel based and lathers up quite well. It doesn't however remove makeup so a proper makeup remover before using this cleanser is necessary! Very easily available and affordable. Travel friendly and comes in various types of packaging. My favourite is the foam pump packaging. Will get this again and again! And will definitely recommend it to anybody with acne prone skin. It suits all skin types!
Cleansers
Subject : Review: Nivea Total Clean Up
Comment : Hi everyone, I got this product with high expectations. Who doesn't love multiple usage products! This is one of those which claims to be used as a face wash , scrub and a mask. But I only like it when I used as a scrub. It just cleans my face like any other normal scrub. It doesn't brighten my full skin or counteracts any pigmentation the way a proper clean up mask should. It works as an average everyday wash/scrub. Will not buy this again and will definitely look for other multiple use products.
Cleansers
Subject : Review: Fab India Tea tree wash
Comment : Hi everyone, Fab India makes great natural products and this is their star product according to me. The first product I used from this brand was this wash because of my problems with acne and inflammation. The face wash has tea tree in it which is a very well known medicament used for acne specially. It works as a great anti inflammatory face wash to reduce the appearance of pimples and specially gets rid of the redness. It doesn't however avoid new pimples. And because of that I give it 3/5 stars. I only use this wash during the days I have many pimples on my face to reduce their appearance. Will recommend to anybody with severe acne woes.
Cleansers
Subject : Innisfree is magic
Comment : This is my go to scrub for summers. Specially good for oily and combination skin- it has the goodness of Jeju volcanic clusters that have magnetic properties against dirt and impurities and leave the pores absolutely clean and unclogged. The granules are gentle enough and it foams up very well. I would still recommend a cleansing foam before this scrub and even though it’s gentle- use it only once or twice a week. It doesn’t have any effect on blackheads but great for pore cleansing. Specially great to avoid pesky pimples in summers. It’s a travel friendly tube packaging, huge for the price it comes at(650?) . It doesn’t remove but cleans the skin very well.
Masque
Subject : Holy grail since years
Comment : I’ve been using this charcoal face pack since before it became cool to put charcoal on the face and let’s just say I’m yet to find a better charcoal pack than this one. It’s my holy grail face pack for summers specially because it acts like a magnet for all extra sebum and impurities and cleanses the pores completely leaving my skin feeling squeaky clean and bright. The effect is long lasting too and with continuous use- I’ve noticed significant brightening effect on my skin. Must try for all skin types. Can make skin a little too dry for dry skin people so follow it up with a good moisturiser. Give this one a try- you won’t be disappointed.
Masque
Subject : Great for acne prone oily skin
Comment : Neem is known to be great to cure active acne and this mask does exactly that. It can make the skin really dry though so I only use this on days when I feel a new pimple is about to pop up. It avoids pesky breakouts and dries up the active ones. Really great for oily and acne prone skin.
