Eyes
Subject : Holy Grail Mascara
Comment : I love this mascara. It is one of the best mascaras out there. Although it is a bit pricey (around700-800 INR) I think its worth it. Packaging and wand: The packaging is very sturdy and sleek and very travel safe. The wand is the hero here. It has tiny bristles ans tapers towards the top. This helps in applying towards the inner corners of the lashes. The wand helps in separating and giving lashes a thicker look thus providing volume. If you curl your lashes before this , this will hold the curl. This mascara is non-waterproof and easy to remove. I used this for a year and after that it started drying up. So it is a good product if you want to use it daily. Though this mascara is one of its kind, The Maybelline Hypercurl comes to a close second and is a bit affordable. But it is still worth the money. Pros: 1. Volume 2. Holds the curl 3. Separates lashes 4. Makes lashes appear thicker 5. Product doesn't dry out easily Cons: 1. Expensive but worth it.
Lips
Subject : Shine Careese- Bella and Cherie
Comment : I have the shade Bella and Cherie. I finished Bella and bought Cherie one. This gloss is amazing. I hate glosses and would never use one but since they said this was a lip stain gloss, I bought this and don't regret buying. This is unlike any other gloss, it forms a layer which stays put on your lips and doesn't move. The color it imparts on the lips is unique and adapts to your lip color. So this gloss would look different on different people. It is my go-to product. The applicator provided is perfect to use. The packaging is lovely and travel safe. It also shoes the color of the gloss. Although it stays on the lips for long, this will transfer. But only the glossiness fades, the color remains. It will survive light snacking and is very moisturizing on the lips. It is worth it. Highly recommended.

Eyes
Subject : Shade - Black
Comment : This is my favorite liner. The tip brush is easy to use. The liquid liner is thick liquid, its not too runny which makes it easier for application. It is also easy to do a winged liner with this as the brush is of perfect size and thickness.The liner is affordable and easily available online and in beauty centers. The product doesn't irritate the eyes and doesn't smudge or crack. It gives a matte black finish which I like. It is not waterproof but water resistant and will stay put for 7-8 hours. It does fade if you rub you eyes or sweat a lot. But still it is a good affordable liner from Coloressense and would definitely recommend this to beginners.
Eyes
Subject : Shade - Brown
Comment : I have the shade brown and I use this eye-shadow as a blending color to do my eye makeup. This shadow is in powder form and comes in a cute square shaped container.It is not pigmented but it can be built up. It definitely needs a primer to show more clearly. It does have fallout and it takes a lot of building up for the product to show up on the lids. It last for a decent time and doesn't crease but fades after a few hours. I would say this eye-shadow is definitely not the best out there but also not the worst. It is a strictly an okay product.
Face
Subject : Amazing foundation
Comment : I have this in the shade 6 and I love it. It is perfect for combination skin and gives a matte finish. The consistency of the foundation is water-like and runny, so best applied by fingers without using any brush or sponge. The foundation is water-based and feels a bit dry. So it does need a moisturizer for sure. It comes in a dropper pump like nozzle and which comes in a plastic bottle. It is travel safe . It last for about 7-8 hours without any fading.It providers medium coverage and gives a natural finish. The foundation didn't break me out at all. So it is safe for sensitive skin. Worth the price and recommended for sensitive acne prone skin.
Face
Subject : Holy Grail Concealer
Comment : I have this in the shade 06 deep and it is the exact shade of my skin. They come in 3 shades in total which is sad but if you can find a shade which suits your skin tone than its worth the money. It covers acne spots, dark circles, pimples etc very well and stays put for a long time. I love this concealer. It comes with a wand applicator which is perfect for spot application and the tube is travel safe as well. It doesn't crease in the under-eye area and blends completely onto my skin giving a flawless face. Worth it and recommended
Lips
Subject : Hate it
Comment : Apart form the color pigmentation I hate everything about this liquid lipstick. It crumbles, cracks, dries giving wrinkled lips and doesn't last long on lips. It won;t survive snacking or eating meals and gets on the teeth. It is a very difficult liquid lipstick to works with. The color I have is Rustic and I bought it t a full price of 900INR and isn't even worth half the price. I don't know whether I got a faulty piece or not but I am extremely disappointed with this lipstick. I can't wear it at any event without being made fun of ( real story) . Not worth the money and not recommended.

Comment : I have purchased this 3 times now and it is my absolute favorite. It is affordable and smell fresh. It gives a matte finish and is great for touch ups. It suits my combination skin perfectly. It never broke me out.It can be a bit drying specially in winters. It comes with a mirror and puff for application. it is my go-to product for my travels.

Face
Subject : Breaks my skin out
Comment : It comes in a glass container and I have used the shade Sand Beige. The foundation is mousse like and looks ashy on my skin. It is more suited for people with pink undertones. It gives a matte finish and feels light and flawless. It lasts for a decent amount of time but does fade after few hours. Every time I have used this it breaks me out and I see few small pimples on my face, hence I have stopped using this. It doesn't suit my skin. I will not recommend this foundation to acne-prone or sensitive skin. Stay away from this product.
Face
Subject : Decent blush
Comment : I have this in the shade Creamy Cinnamon and it is a peachy pink shade. The pigmentation of this blush is okay but can be built up. It is great for beginners and teenage girls. It lasts a decent amount of time. It is smooth and doesn't break out my skin. It is affordable and easily available online and offline.

Eyes
Subject : Decent product
Comment : It comes in a plastic container now with brush which is very useful. The gel is smooth, pigmented and can be used to create sharp lines. It doesn't smudge and fades smoothly if you happen to rub your eyes wearing this. It lasts all day long and is water resistant to an extent. The product dries in the container if kept open for long. So do keep it tightly closed. Recommended.
Eyes
Subject : 002 hazel
Comment : This comes in a pencil for which can be sharpened. It also has a small brush on its cap. The cap color is same as that of the product. I have this in the Hazel and it is a light ashy brown shade. I use this to fill in my eyebrows and also where my eyebrows start for a natural look. This looks very good on inspite of being so light. It perfectly fills in brows and gives them a natural look. The brush comes so handy to spread the product evenly and you don't have to look for a separate brush. This is perfect when you are travelling, since this comes with a brush. The brush is small and flat which is apt for eyebrows. The product stays on all day yet it is easy to remove. It is waterproof but will come off with soap or any makeup remover. Love this as it is affordable as well. Recommended for all especially for women with sparse eyebrows.
Eyes
Subject : Turquoise shade
Comment : This comes in retractable pencil form. It works amazing as a liner, eyeshadow base, smudge liner as well as on the waterline. It lasts decent amount of time. Pigmentation is really good. Will suit most Indian skin tone as the colour is unique. Affordable and easily available. It doesn't irritate the eyes. Recommended.
Lips
Subject : Shade- Eternal Rose
Comment : This has a semi-matte finish. It has a beautiful rose pink shade and I absolutely love it. But that's the only good part about this lipstick. The formula is very sticky and crumbles into tiny balls. The lipstick has a strong chemical scent. It doen't feel comfortable on the lips. Not recommended.
Lips
Subject : Shade-Bronzed Orange
Comment : It is an everyday lipstick. It is very moisturizing and lasts for a couple of hours. It has medium finish and the shade Bronzed Orange is peachy shade. It will suit most Indian skin tone. It is easily available and affordable. It is good for beginners and teenage girls. Recommended.
Eyes
Subject : Shade - Brown
Comment : It is a two sided pencil. One side has a wax tip with sheer color of brown and other side has the sponge tip dipped in powder cap. The product definitely works together and gives a natural finish.But Indian women have black eyebrows, so I wish they would have had dark shade selection of colors. It is a good product fro Maybelline. Buy if you have light brows and want natural finish.
Nails
Subject : Best
Comment : This is such an underrated product fro Maybelline. It last for lot of days. Doesn't chip. Gives nice finish and dries quickly. The applicator brush is long and thin for perfect application. It does cost a bit for a nail polish, but is worth the money. Highly recommended. Best in the market
Nails

Comment : It is affordable and has a wide shade selection. But is doesn't even last few days. Starts chipping and the product is of strictly of okay quality. It is good if you want a new nail polish every few days. Recommended for teenage girls. Coral craze is my favorite

Comment : Such a lovely shade. I have the shade "All that glitters". Last for 1-2 weeks on the nails. It does take a while to dry completely since it has chunks of glitters. It is priced just about right. Easily available online and in malls. Looks lovely. Perfect for parties, weddings or even festivals. Recommended.

Comment : This mascara gives good volume to the lashes. It separates them and makes them look defined. The product is semi liquid, so it does dry out easily. So this product will last 4-5 months once you use. It comes it both washable and water-resistent version. The wand is dense and hence gives volume to the lashes. It is affordable and best in the market.
Lips
Subject : Love it.
Comment : This balm is very effective and works quickly to heal chapped lips. Also helps if you want to exfoliate lips. I have them in Anti-oxidant Berry, Mango and Orange variant. These are very effective and have spf in them too. Perfect to carry in bag or keep stored in your vanity. Also these are very affordable and available everywhere even in medical stores.

Comment : I like this liner for cat eyes/ winged liner look. It is very useful to line the inner areas of the eyes. It is very liquidy and of thin consistency. The liner comes with thin felt tip. The liner dries quickly and to a matte finish. It is not that pigmented though and the product finishes quickly. It is an okay product.
Lips
Subject : Good shade selection
Comment : I have this in the shades Flaming Fuchsia and Lively Violet. Both give a semi matte finish. It last for about 4-5 hours. It does transfer and will not survive heavy snacking. It is moisturizing and smells nice. I love the matte black packaging. It is affordable, so i would say it is definitely worth the price.
Lips
Subject : Gorgeous rich berry shade
Comment : This polish is extremely moisturizing. Also on application, I feel a little tingling on my lips and it definitely plumps them a bit. This polish gives a very glossy stain like finish. It is transferable and smudges a bit. It will survive light snacking and will fade evenly. Buy this only if you like heavy glossy finish.
Lips
Subject : Pink Bloom
Comment : This is a very pigmented balm. It gives color to the lips after application. It comes in twist up packaging. The shade is berry pink on my lips. This balm will look different on different lips. It is moisturizing and gives glossy finish. It is great for people who like tinted lip balms
Lips
Subject : Transparent and Pink shade
Comment : I don't like this lip gloss. It is sticky and doesn't feel comfortable on the lips. Hair tends to stick to the lips . They come in clear packaging, so you can see the shade. It transfers and doesn't last long on the lips. It is quite affordable but not worth buying.
Face
Subject : Love it.
Comment : I love this powder. It smells like fresh roses. I apply it lightly on top of my makeup but it stays on skin even without makeup. I also noticed that it controls my sweat-ness on the face when I apply this powder. Also it also helps with controlling the oiliness. It is so affordable and easily available. Must have product.
Lips
Subject : Okay lipstick
Comment : I have a few shades from this. They are numbered,so it is a bit difficult to remember the shades. Also am not a big fan of the packaging. They have a saucy finish and feel a bit heavy on the lips. They also have the castor oil smell to it, which I don't like. They will transfer. However, they are moisturizing. I wear them as a matte lipstick by blotting it on a tissue paper and it looks good. Some shades have shimmer to them, so choose as per your liking. Overall they are okay.

Subject : NA
Comment : This makeup remover contains 2 products, one is an oil based product which stays on top and another one is a liquid. The remover needs to be shaken before application. Just a little amount on cotton is enough to remove makeup. It easily removes liquid lipstick which is a real task without creating too much mess and also removes any other waterproof makeup. It doesn't irritate or dry out the skin. The packaging is quite sturdy and is safe to carry as well. This is perfect when you don't have time for a CTM routine and just want a quick fix to remove your makeup.
Lips
Subject : Glossy balm
Comment : I have this balm in a red shade. They come in a soft plastic tube. The balm has water shine with hint of color. The balm is very moisturizing and will stay on lips as long as you don't eat anything. It won't survive heavy meals and will transfer as all glosses do. It has a sweet smell. The packaging is small and cute and can easily be carried anywhere and stored in a small bag. It is super affordable and easily available. If you are looking for a glossy balm for everyday wear, then this is the perfect fit. Recommended for beginners and teenage girls.
Face
Subject : Best at the price
Comment : I am not a big fan of the dull packaging of this. But this is a really good product from Lakme. This comes with a puff as well as a mirror. The compact gives a sheer finish and helps control oiliness. This compact is also good for touch-ups. The compact stays on for 4-5 hours. Since I have oily T-zone I need to touch up after few hours. But this doesn't break out my sensitive skin or irritate my skin.They are very affordable and are easily available online and in stores. It helps to give a matte finish. If you have clear skin, you won;t need a foundation with this. It is good to give a light even finish. It is worth the price and is recommended!
Lips
Subject : Perfect Matte Lipsticks
Comment : I have these in the shade Red Chaos which is a dusty pink shade and other is Cherry Chic which is warm orange shade. I absolutely love both these shades and they will suit Indian women in all shade range. The texture of these lipsticks is ultra smooth and glides on the lips like butter. It is the most amazing texture I have seen in a lipstick. These lipsticks are moisturizing and settle to a matte finish after few minutes of application. They transfer a bit. They will survive light snacking and tea/coffee. These come in a wide selection of shades , so many women will find atleast one shade which they will like. They last for 6-7 hours. They are very affordable at 400rs and are easily available. Highly recommended!
Eyes
Subject : Budget Liner
Comment : This is an affordable liner from Lakme. It gives sharp precision and gives matte finish. It has a thin and soft tip for drawing straight liner. Ideal for drawing a winged line. It does take a while to dry out but once set it won't move all day. It isn't waterproof or smudge proof, so one needs to be careful with it. At 80rs, this is the best affordable black liner in the market. It is easily available and super affordable. Recommended for makeup loves and girls who are used to applying liquid eyeliner.
Eyes
Subject : Okay product
Comment : I have this in the shade black. It comes in a twist up pencil from and glides easily on the water line. It doesn't irritate my eyes or tug on them. However, this smudges a lot. Also, since I have oily waterline area, it does not stay there for more than 2-3 hours. It works good as a liner on the lids and stays there for a decent amount of time. Not recommended for women having oily lids. Also the pigmentation is not pitch black . It is like a light black.
Eyes
Subject : Curls Lashes
Comment : The mascara does what it claims. It curls lashes. You need to wiggle the wand in you lashes and it will give you that curl effect. Also this mascara is good for lower lashes as well since the wand is sleek enough. This is however not water proof and will come off instantly if you wash your face. The product is a bit runny, so it need to be carefully applied, otherwise the product spreads everywhere. It is affordable and easily available. However at the same price point Maybelline has one which also comes in a water-proof version. So I much prefer that. But this is a good product from Lakme and does its job well.
Lips
Subject : Shade-Praline
Comment : I have this in the shade Praline. The color is a light brown shade which will suit all skin tones. The gloss has a buttery shine as the name suggest and gives the lips a yummy buttery gloss. The gloss is extremely moisturizing and won't highlight dry patches. It has a doe foot applicator which is perfect for application. This range has many shades available and are available online. They do transfer a bit. But they will survive light snacking and tea/coffee. Love this product. Recommended
Lips
Subject : Shade Sultry
Comment : The packaging of this shows exactly the color of the balm shade. It comes in a twist pencil packaging.The shade Sultry is a muted pink shade. It is pigmented enough and covers my pigmented lips well. On application my lips feel a cool sensation due to the peppermint in this balm. It is a bit moisturizing but no like a basic lip-balm. It does give a matte finish. It last for 4-5 hours. This does transfer and won't survive heavy meals. Also if you have dry lips, you need to exfoliate before applying this because this won't cover them. It cost about 800 rs, which is a bit expensive. It is good for daily wear and teenage girls.
Lips
Subject : Shade- Unapologetic
Comment : The shade Unapologetic is a vibrant neon pink. But the pink is very wearable. It would look good on fair to medium skin tones. This balm will accentuate chapped lips, so exfoliate your lips before wearing them. The finish of this is matte. This does transfer and heavy meals. This is like a matte lipstick in a chubby stick form. This shade stain the lips a bit. At 800 rs, I find these too expensive since so many brands have now introduced matte lipsticks at half the price.
Eyes
Subject : Not of oily skin
Comment : I love the sleek black packaging. I comes is twist pencil form. The kajal glides very smoothly without any tugging. The kajal is pigmented and gives the kohl eyed look. However it smudges very much and also fades away easily. It needs constant tough up since it smudges so much. It does however work better on eye lids than on my waterline. If you have oily undereye area like me, this won't stay smudge free. Also, this kajal is a bit pricy compared to kajals from other brands. Lotus Ecostay and Faces are much better and smudge free than this.
Eyes
Subject : Essential
Comment : This product is famous for a reason. This was a product which many girls who just stated using makeup and wanted something affordable and easy to use had. This comes in a retractable pencil form and gives good pigmentation. It also works well as an eyeliner. This is affordable and easily available anywhere in stores. Also it doesn't irritate the eyes. But for women with oily skin, this won't works that well. This does smudge and crease especially at the outer corner of my eyes. This is waterproof.This stays on me for about 3-4 hours after which it starts smudging.This is ideal for teenage girls or women with dry skin.
Eyes
Subject : Ecostay Kajal
Comment : This is a great kajal for girls who have oily skin. This comes in a pencil form, so you do need to sharpen this .The kajal is super pigmented.It doesn't smudge and stays on for long. It gives a gel liner type finish and is affordable as well.
Lips
Subject : Shade - Epic
Comment : I have this in the shade Epic.This comes in a retractable pencil form. The pencil packaging shows exactly the color of the lip liner.The shade epic is a soft apricot brown shade. This shade is a Kylie Lips kit type of a shade. It is super smooth to apply and is not drying unlike other lip liners. This stays on me for about 6-7 hours after which it starts fading. The product is a bit delicate and breaks if applied to a bit pressure. Also the quantity of this product is also very less. Mine got over in a month. But highly recommended especially the shade Epic since it will suit all skin tones.
Lips
Subject : Glam 6
Comment : I have this in he shade glam 6. The packaging is pretty sturdy and the transparent tube shows the product color inside. The shade glam 6 is a deep berry shade. It is very moisturizing, infact it tingles a bit on my lips and makes my lips more plumper. The shade is very pigmented and coves my rather dark lips completely. The doe foot applicator takes up only a little quantity at a time for easy application. It gives a lush glossy look. The product will survive light snacking and even tea/coffee. It stays on for a decent amount of 6-7 hours of time. The product is kinda thick and doesn't move from the lips. Even after a heavy meal, the gloss will fade leaving a layer of even stain on the lips. The berry shade will look darker on fair skin tones while compliment darker skin tones. It is a long staying affordable gloss. Highly recommended.
Eyes
Subject : 01 Copper
Comment : I have the other palette in 01 Copper. The packaging is small and compact with a eyeshadow sponge tip brush. The eye shadow is in powder form.The shade are decent in pigmentation. Not too good not too bad. However they have a very bad fallout and they also need a base cream shadow to look intense. The 4 shades in this palette will compliment Indian skin tones. 1st is a shimmery white shade. 2nd is peachy golden shade. 3rd is a true golden shade and last on is a shimmery brown shade. All shades have shimmers in them. The will last for a long time only with a cream eyeshadow underneath like the Maybelline Eye tattoo. Otherwise these fade away. They also need a lot of layering to show up on the lids. They are affordable. Only good for light daily wear.
Lips
Subject : Shade - Chic
Comment : I have this in the shade Chic. The lipstick has sleek packaging and shows the shade color on top. The shade chic is a light pink shade with not much pigmentation and has glitter in it. I am not a fan for glitter lipsticks and he glitter in this lipstick are quite chunky and big. Also while application the glitter comes out more on the lips than the actual color of the lipstick. Also the color doesn't stay that much longer on the lips and only the chunky glitter remains on the lips.This liptsick is a big no for me and I would not recommend it to anyone especially the shade "Chic"
Eyes
Subject : Neutral Palette
Comment : This palette as the name suggest contains 32 matte eye shadows. All the shades are neutral as well as blending shades which are an essential in any makeup look. The eyeshadows are buttery smooth and are of decent pigmentation. The shades range from browns, mauves, whites and black. This palette is a must have for any makeup person as this covers all the neural shades possible. Also this has a good quality mirror to the palette which is extremely helpful. Highly recommended.

Subject : Shade- 4
Comment : MUA blushes are really of great quality. The come in a plastic packaging with MUA embossed on it. The shade I have is Shade-4. It is a warm coral shade. It looks stunning on my cheeks and warms my face up. My mom has a fair skin tone and looks absolutely stunning on her as well. The blush is decently pigmented and the color and be build up for more intensity. It is a powder blush with a negligible shimmer to it. For the price, this is very affordable as well as worth every penny. A must have for every girl. This shade especially will suit all skin tones. On darker skin tones this may look a bit pink ones but stunning none the less.
Face
Subject : Shade Beige
Comment : The concealer comes in a plastic tube packaging with a nozzle to ooze out the product. The shade Beige suits my wheatish skin and coves spots very well. It also coves acne marks and dark under eyes well well. For smooth finish I top this off with a setting powder and my under eyes look super smooth and brighter. The nozzle oozes out tiny amount without making any mess. The concealer is of light creamy texture and blends easily. This will however emphasize dry patches on the skin or dried up acne. So best suited for oily skin women. It is affordable but only available majorly through Oriflame sellers. It is a good concealer and stays on the skin for a long time as well. Recommended.
Face
Subject : Shade-6
Comment : The shade 6 is a apricot brown shade with rose gold shimmers. The blush shade is very unique and the most beautiful shade I have seen.The blush looks beautiful and imparts a healthy glow to my wheatish complexion. The blush is best used as a highlighter and a warm bronzer. The shimmers aren't to in your face. So this can be worn in the day as well . This will suit all skin tones.On fair skin tone this looks like a peachy shade and gives a subtle glow as well. On medium to dark skin tones this will look great as a highlighter. This lasts for about 4-5 hours on me. The color can be built up to intensify the look. It gives a goddess like glow to my face. It also works as an eye-shadow as well. A this price range this is best in the market and very affordable as well. The packaging is compact and easy to carry anywhere as well. Highly recommended.
Eyes
Subject : Shade- Onyx
Comment : This shadow comes in a very tiny compact container. The shade Onyx is a black shadow with silver glitters in it. The eye-shadow is decently pigmented. It is a bit patchy and doesn't apply that smoothly. It needs a heavy priming of the lids to show and blend well onto the lids.It does have a fallout and takes a bit of layering to show the color well. The are of decent quality. Not too great not too bad. Buy these eyeshadows only if you need some everyday shadows to wear. There are other good shades in this range which are good, so I would recommend those. This shade Onyx in particular can only be used while doing heavy eye look.

Comment : This comes with a sketch pen form with a long pointed tip. The tip is not too thick or too thin. The liner is a thin liquid. The pigmentation is decent and for a really opaque color payoff, you will need to layer this liner.It is great for doing winged liner. Also for beginners who find it difficult to apply liker, this is a blessing. It dries to a semi matte finish. It doesn't smudge or fade or crack after drying. It lasts for a long time. I found this better than the Maybelline Hypersharp liner. Also easy to carry. Highly recommended
Face
Subject : Good BB cream
Comment : The packaging comes in a plastic tube with a pointed nozzle which oozes out tiny amount at a time. The shade I have is Natural. The coverage it provides is medium and on application it feels very fresh. It gives a dewy finish and I top it off with a compact. It does have an spf and gives a brightness to the face. It doesn't break my skin out. It lasts for a the whole day. It is best suited for dry to normal skin tone. The packaging is small in size and easy to carry with .Good for travelling. However they only come in 3 shades. They should introduce more shades for darker skin tones with warm undertones as well. Otherwise recommended.
Eyes
Subject : Good
Comment : This comes in a retractable pencil in a red packaging. The pencil is super soft and smooth to apply on the waterline. The kajal is super pigmented. The kajal can also be applied as a liner and gives a gel liner look to the eyes. The kajal however smudges a lot on the waterline. However as a liner it stays on the lids for the whole day. This will suit women with dry to normal eye area. It is a good kajal and doesn't irritate eye or tug on the waterline. Recommended but women with oily eye area should avoid this. However as a liner, it stays for a long time.
Face
Subject : Shade - Honey
Comment : I have this in the shade Honey which is a the darkest shade in this range. But still it is too light for my skin. This comes in a pencil twist up packaging. It needs to be twisted in a certain way and carefully to take out the product. I use this around my eye area and eyebrows since this is too light for my face. It gives a nice definition to my eyebrows and blends easily. However it needs to be blended quicky other wise it is difficult to blend after drying so quickly. As it claims , it does highlight a little. I would buy this again only if this came in darker shade. Also the packaging is quite travel . If the shade range matches your skin tone, then it is quite good.
Face
Subject : Shade- Natural Beige
Comment : I have this in the shade Natural Beige. This is a shade lighter for my skin tone but still suits me. The foundation comes in a glass packaging with a pump. It also has a spf of 20. I need 2 pumps of product to apply to my face and neck. The foundation is a bit heavy and gives a dewy finish. This foundation is best suited for dry to normal skin. Oily skin should stay away from this one. It is not travel safe since the plastic lid covering the pump comes off easily and the glass container is bulky to carry. It costs 799 INR which is a bit expensive. This applies best with a sponge. Recommended if you like a dewy finish to your foundation.

Comment : This is a great mascara from Oriflame. It has a wand which is sleek and long. The wand has short spikes to it. The mascara separates and gives volume to the lashes. It is not water proof however. The mascara does dry out quickly, so needs to be applied accordingly. The mascara has a thick consistency to it. It also works very well on the lower lashes which not a lot of mascaras can do. Also it is easy to apply to the corners of the lashes as well.Highly recommend this especially if you love lashes to be separated evenly with a bit of volume.
Nails
Subject : Best in market
Comment : The color pop nail paints are seriously best in the market. These are better than Maybelline and Lakme ones as well. They come in a cute small packaging and at affordable prices. I have a pink, red and grey shade from this range. These nail polishes don't chip easily and lasts long on the nails. Also the color payoff is also good. One coat gives opaque finish. It also can be stored for a lot of months without the nailpolish becoming thick. This is one of the underrated product from elle18. Also they have a lot of shade options available with shimmery shades as well. They are also easily available at beauty stores. Highly recomended.
Lips
Subject : Rock N Mauve
Comment : I have this in the shade Rock N Mauve. It is as named a mauve color which tends to the purple side. The color is wearable however and will look good on medium to darker skin tones. The packaging is nice Loreal logo on it. The lipstick displays the color of it at the top as well as on the bottom. It is very moisturizing and has a shine to it. The color payoff is sheer however. It is like a tinted lip balm to be precise. This is more wearable than a lip balm but less than a lipstick. It is good for daily wear without the added intensity of a lipstick. It does transfer lightly. it will survive light snacking and tea. This is perfect for beginners and teenage girls.
Nails
Subject : Sheer finish
Comment : I have this in the shade Marie Antoinette. I love the sleek packaging of this with a sleek golden cap as well. The shade is a very light soft pink. The finish is however sheer and needs 2-3 coats for opaque finish. The brush is rounded towards the end and lays flat and wide while application. It dries quickly and stayed on my nails for a week without chipping. It is worth the price however I would have liked it more if they had more opacity to the color. These are available in many unique colors which are hard to find any dupes. The price is around 230-250 which is a bit expensive as compared to other brands. But they are a good nail polishes.
Lips
Subject : Good
Comment : These come in a dull packaging. However they are good lipsticks. They are very moisturizing and give a sheen to the lips. Also these have a wide range of colors for Indian skin tones so every one will find shades to their liking. I have this in the shade name 129 which is a nude pink shade and looks stunning on me. They are however of medium finish and will take few swipe to look opaque on the lips. These do transfer and won't survive heavy meals. They also contain vit e and olive extracts which provide moisture to the lips. These are good for everyday wear and also for beginners.
Eyes
Subject : No useful
Comment : This is a fat kajal pencil. Normal kajal pencil sharpener won't suit this pencil you need a big sharpner. Also the pencil tip is too big to apply directly to the water line. It becomes round too soon and again needs sharpening. Also it smudges as lot and doesn't last long. With so many kajal pencils in the market, it is not worth it to buy this one. Not recommended.
Lips
Subject : Good
Comment : I have his in the shade Pinken and Red Rouge.These have a moisturizing balm at the centre. The come in the quintessential Elle18 packaging. The lipsticks are of good pigmentation with a glossy finish. They are moisturizing and apply smoothly on the lips. They last for decent amount of time but won't survive heavy meals. These are everyday lipstick available at affordable prices. Also they are very easily available and have good shade range. They do transfer a bit. Also it has a peculiar smell to this which I personally don't like and thus I haven't bought other shades fro this range.Overall they are average.
Lips
Subject : Moisturizing ultra shine lipstick
Comment : I received the shade Coral as part of Glamrada Trial Squad. Cost: INR 595 The packaging is sleek and sturdy. The shade Coral is very flattering to my wheatish skin tone. The lipstick has a lot of ingredients like lanolin oil and active ingredient like tocopheryl acetate which reduces flakiness of the lips. As you can see from the picture that I have attached that my lips look plump and moisturized. My lips are always dry and with this one I didn't need any prepping whatsoever and still had plump lips. The brand says that this is a sheer lip gloss colour for plump, shiny and moist lips and it delivers 100% of what it claims. Of course this does transfer if you have snacks/tea and reapplication is needed. This shade is pigmented enough to cover my pigmented lips and the color intensifies once it sets Personally I am not a gloss person, but if you are on the look out for a lipstick which moisturises and gives plump lips, look no further than this one
Eyes
Subject : My staple product
Comment : This kajal is probably one of the most underated product around. Yes it comes in a pencil form which need sharpening but it is an amazing long lasting kajal. The color I have used is in Black and it is very pigmented. It is very smooth to apply and once it settles down, it hardly moves. It gives such a sharp look to my eyes. It lasts around 6-7 hours on my oily eye area after which it starts to fade. It is water resistant and can easily be removed by coconut oil or makeup remover. This one is a must have product for me.
Lips
Subject : Fun to use
Comment : These crayons remind me of crayon colors we used during school days. The packaging is cute and comes with a dual sharpener which is a plus! I have the shade Mauve Magic (pink with hints of purple), Peach Magnet(light peach) and Cinnamon Brown(nude brown). Peach magnet is a bit patchy and hard to apply but rest two apply smoothly and are really pigmented. The give a semi-matte finish and last a decent amount of time. They slightly transfer and will not survive heavy meals. These come at 185INR with a free sharpener. What more can you ask? There are few more shades in this range mostly pinks and reds. These are perfect for everyday wear and especially teenage girls on a budget.
Lips
Subject : Shade: Tulle
Comment : I have this in the shade "Tulle" and I adore this one. Tulle is a deep burgundy shade but on my pigmented lips it looks a more brick brown shade. On fairer skin tones this will look a more burgundy than brown. It is insanely pigmented. One coat gives me opaque finish and it also dries fast. Lasted on my lips for a good 8-9 hours with fading after that. My lips are dry but this felt comfortable enough. The only thing is these are a task to buy, since international shipping+customs are a headache. I bought mine through an Instagram store to avoid all the hassle.
Face
Subject : Good one
Comment : I have this in the shade Warm Honey. It comes in a squeeze tube with a brush tip. I use this to define my eyebrows and hide dark spots. It is a lightweight yet a pigmented concealer. The packaging makes it easy to carry anywhere and use it without getting any messiness. However, the issue which I face even with my oily skin is that, in the under eye area , it doesn't blend that easily and needs an eye-cream to make it blend well. If you don't use that, then it won't blend well and the concealer is quite visible. SO a good moisturizing base is a must for this concealer. The LA Girl range has a variety of shades to choose from and are decently priced. Recommended.
Eyes
Subject : Palette- Innocence
Comment : I got this from Glamrada in the palette Innocence. It has 3 shades - a cream shimmer, a bronze and a duo toned brown shade. The colors are very pigmented and look amazing on the lids. They are easy to blend and you can apply them with a brush without any effort. I also tried the shades wet and they look even more pigmented and almost metal with a metallic finish. It stays on for a good amount of time and the packaging is small enough to carry as well as identify the colors. Recommended!!
Eyes
Subject : Amazing
Comment : I love this sketch liner. This is my go-to eyeliner for ever day wear. This stays on all day, is very pigmented and dries to a matte finish. Also because of the tip, it is very easy to get a sharp line and create that perfect winged liner. It is super affordable and easily available online. It doesn't smudge or fade away at all. Because of the compact pen packaging, it is very easy to carry as well. Highly recommended.
Eyes
Subject : Bad
Comment : This kajal is very waxy, thus does not transfer that easily to the waterline. Also, smudges a lot and is not really that pigmented. It is affordable but it defeats the whole purpose of a kajal i.e soft black color, which it doesn't give. Not recommended.
Eyes
Subject : Okay
Comment : This liner is very affordable. It has a long applicator with a good tip. However, the liner crumbles a bit after application and doesn't stay on the lids that well. It does dry to a matte finish. I don't use this eyeliner on its own since it fades away. I layer it on top of the Blue heaven sketch liner which requires a bit of pigmentation. If you have already purchased this, try layering it on top of another liner for pitch black intensity otherwise you can easily skip this.
Lips
Subject : Midnight Rose
Comment : I have the shade Midnight Rose which is a beautiful maroon shade which will flatter all skin tone. The pigmentation is insane and one swipe covers my pigmented lips. The texture is smooth and glides on the lips. It is very comfortable on the lips and doesn't feel drying on the lips at all. It gives a matte finish to the lips and looks very chic. However, it doesn't dry down completely. If you happen to eat, this will transfer and smudge. Among all the crayons in the market right now, this one is by far the best one. Highly recommended. The range has wide range to choose from, so every woman will like at least one shade from the range.

Comment : I got this palette in the E01 AZURE as part of the #TrialSquad. Cost: INR 695 Packaging: I absolutely love this packaging. It comes in a sleek black compact type of a packaging with two double-ended eyeshadow sponge. There is also a mirror in it. The packaging is very lightweight, sturdy and easy to travel with. I primed my eyes before using these eyeshadows and also set it with powder for a clean and even base. Colours: This palette has three shades. Smoke Grey - It is a matte dark grey shade. This shade has a bit of a fallout and needs 2-3 patting to pack the colour on the eyes. Patting the shadow than blending it works more for this colour. Dark Cobalt- My favourite shade from this palette. It is a nice blue shimmer shade. It applies easily but also needs to be applied 2-3 times for intense colour. I also tried to apply it wet to see if it can give me an intense colour but it doesn't build much with that either. Peach Glow- It is a light peachy shimmer shade. Doesn't show much on the eyes and on blending only some shimmers remain. Pigmentation and texture- These are powder shadows which are smooth to apply but definitely need to apply several times to get an intense look. The pigmentation of these is good except Peach Glow. Staying Power: After application, it stayed on my lids for the entire day without budging. The shimmers were also pretty much in the same place. I also applied it under the waterline and it stayed there without any irritation or fading. Overall, this is a good eyeshadow palette and stays on for long once on but need a lot of building up. I am not sure if this is a good palette for beginners but definitely for someone who loves makeup and needs a compact palette easy to carry anywhere.
Face
Subject : Extreme Pigmentation
Comment : I received this blush in B03 SUMMER CORAL as part of #TrialSquad. Cost: INR 595 Packaging: It is a perfect packaging for a blush. It has a mirror, the blush and a mini blusher brush. The brush is very soft and applies the blush very well. I absolutely love the packaging and is very apt when travelling. Colour, pigmentation and staying power: The shade summer coral as the name suggest is a coral blush. I took the brush provided and applied it to my cheek. And it is insanely pigmented! If you have the habit of using the Maybelline blushes than this is not like that. It needs to be applied carefully because it is very pigmented. I personally love coral blushes as compared to pink blushes for Indian skin tones and this shade will suit all skin tones. The blush is powder in texture and has a matte finish. Although you can see a few shimmers in the pan, they are not visible in the swatches or on cheeks. This shade gives a perfect balance of colour and warmth to my face. It lasts all day but if you have oily skin it may fade a bit early. Overall, I highly recommend this!
Face
Subject : Daily wear foundation
Comment : I purchased this foundation in the shade 04 True Tan. I use Maybelline Fit Me in 310 in Sun Beige which suits me perfectly. This foundation however was bit dark for my skin tone. But as the product claims, it does adapt to my skin tone pretty well without looking too dark. The foundation is liquid is consistancy and applies best using fingers/brush. It gives a dewy finish and would be perfect for dry skin types. Even to my combination skin, once set with powder, it lasts for quite a while. The main thing which I like about this foundation is, it suits my sensitive acne prone skin. I didn't get any breakouts while using this. The packaging is really travel safe and light-weight enough to carry in your purse. This contains Hyaluronic acid which is a natural skin plumper. The coverage of this foundation is sheer to medium. It will not cover acne-spots or hyperpigmentation. But for everyday use, this does the job well. It retails for 575 and available online on Nykaa and offline at Nykaa outlets. Overall, I recommend this as an everyday wear sheer coverage foundation.

SKINCARE REVIEWS


Moisturizer
Subject : Not suited for oily acne prone skin
Comment : This comes in a plastic tube form. It is easy to carry. It has a SPF of 24 with UVB/UVA protection. The coverage of this BB cream is sheer. It is a bit oily for my combination skin tone. Also it oxidizes on the skin. Also if your skin is acne prone, stay away from this one. It doesn't break my skin out but makes it a bit oily. Also shades are not available for darker skin tones. Only suited for normal to dry skin.
Cleansers
Subject : Holy grail
Comment : I must have tried 10-20 different face washes uptill now but this is by far the best one. I have been using this for 10 years now. It does give a fair complexion and also helps to reduce the acne marks. It doesn't lather much. However it dries the skin out a bit so you need to follow it up with a moisturizer. Best suited for oily-acne prone skin. My favorite face wash.
Under Eye
Subject : Okay
Comment : I have used this for my puffy undereyes but haven't seen much difference. The product is a thin liquid serum like. It doesn't irritate eyes. It feels cool when applied on the eyes. Thats all that I experienced. I have heard the coffee one from this brand works well.

Comment : I absolutely love this product. I have repurchased it 3 times now. The product can be used in there ways, as a face wash, scrub and mask and works equally well in all three ways. The face wash gives a clear skin and helps to reduce acne marks. When used as a scrub it exfoliates and makes the skin soft. As a mask it helps to clear out and shrink the pores on the face. The is a multi-action product which can be used it different ways. It is perfect when travelling since it can be used in many ways. Highly recommended for all skin types.
Moisturizer
Subject : Not of oily skin
Comment : This a fairness cream for Garnier. It comes in a glass tub container. the product is white in color. I am not a fan of the container packaging since you are required to dip your fingers in the container everyday which is not hygenic. Also, this doesn't suit my combination skin and my face loos oily on application of this. This is best suited for dry to normal skin tones. Also not suited for acne prone skin.
Moisturizer
Subject : Not suited for acne prone skin
Comment : I have used this product for a year and without realizing this product gave me an acne breakout. This product contains Isopropyl Palmitate which is highly comedogenic product. The product is of a light texture and easily absorbs into the skin. It comes in a plastic tub container. It does make the skin smooth. If you don't have acne prone skin, you can easily use this. Suited for all skin types except acne prone skin. I can't recommend this since it did not suit me.
Exfoliator
Subject : Mixed feeling
Comment : I used this mask regularly for my combination skin. The product comes in a plastic tub container and is dark grey in color. When applied on the skin, it tingles a bit. It needs to be kept for 20 minutes to fully dry out. The mask helps in relaxing the skin and shrinking the skin. However I did see traces of product left in my pores. I washed it thoroughly but still stayed there. Apart from that, no other complaints from this product. Also the product becomes stiff in he container even when kept tightly closed.Will suit all skin types. It is an okay product for me.
Masque
Subject : Love it.
Comment : This product is a regular buy for me. The product comes in a plastic tube packaging.The product is dark green in color with a runny paste like consistency. The mask dries in 10 minutes. It helps in controlling and cooling my acne prone skin. Skin feels smooth and soft. Also it helps to clear the acne marks as well. It gives a subtle glow and give a clear skin. Love this. Also doesn't dry out the skin. Best mask I have ever tried. Suited for all skin types. Highly recommended.

Subject : Okay
Comment : This comes in a plastic tube. It has a strong floral smell which gives me a headache. And the smell doesn't go even after application. The face pack also has a very thick solid consistency. The product needs to be diluted to make it into a paste for application. It does give a soft skin and bit clear skin. Also face doesn't dry out. But the strong smell and consistency of the product is a turn off. Will suit all skin types.
Masque
Subject : Good mask
Comment : I have this face mask 4-5 times now. The volcanic clay mask is beige colored. I scrubbed and steamed my face before applying this mask. The mask helped to relax my skin. Also I have active acne on my skin, this mask tremendously helped to minimize them. Also it helps to shrink large pores on the skin making the face look flawless. The skin feels soft and nourished after removing the mask.This mask also helped to reduce the acne spots on my face. Just love this mask. Highly recommended for oily acne prone skin. Also if you have large open pores on the face, this will help to minimize their size too.
Moisturizer
Subject : Oxidises
Comment : I used to love this BB cream. This has SPF, gives matte finish and has medium coverage. But I have stopped using this. This oxidizes on the skin making you look dull and your face oily. Also they have few shades to choose from which mostly are suited for fair skin tones. Not recommended especially for oily skin.

Subject : good not great
Comment : This is a grey colored face wash and smells musky. Also it feels cool when applied on the face.It lathers a bit.This does clean the face thoroughly. This didn't break out my skin. However, this dries out my skin too much. Like I can't even move my face without feeling like I am cracking my face. Even though I have combination skin, this one feels too drying. Would not recommend this.
Cleansers
Subject : Breaks my skin out
Comment : This was the 1st product which broke my skin out. Chin, forehead and cheeks, I had a breakout everywhere. Neutrogena as a brand is associated with products which help to reduce acne breakout. However this did the opposite. Even a friend of mine experienced the same thing while using this face wash. I did some research online about this face wash and found out that Neutrogena products will not work for 1 in 20 people who use it. So I guess I was that 1 person. I have combination acne prone sensitive skin. Since I have had such a terrible experience with his product I cannot recommend this
Masque
Subject : Good
Comment : This comes in a plastic tube. The peel off mask is in shimmery green color and gel form in texture. It has a strong alcohol type of a smell which is a bit irritating to use. I applied a thick layer of this until it dried and then peeled the dry layer of the product. I didn't notice much difference in my skin afterwards except it looked a bit clean. Skin didn't feel dry either. This is a pretty average product. Not too good and not too bad. Doesn't irritate the skin either. It is an average peel off mask from Himalaya.

Comment : This one is a blue colored facewash from Nivea. It has a mild musk fragrance to it. It cleans the face pretty well. Face feels fresh and squeaky clean. Skin doesn't feel dry after. It lasts for a long time since you need only a tiny amount of this facewash. Good one and recommended for all skin types.

Comment : I have purchased this one few times now. This one is in Cocoa variant. It smells of delicious chocolate and lasts all day. It is a smooth beige colored lotion. It applies nicely and absorbs quickly onto the skin. Skin feels soft and super sooth afterwards. Doesn't have any greasiness to it. This is perfect lotion for everyday wear as well as suited for all seasons. Only a tiny amount is needed to apply to arms and legs. Lasts for long time.
Toners
Subject : Holy Grail
Comment : I recently purchased this because I had heard so many reviews about it. And I was not disappointed. Yes 250 INR for a Rose water bottle seems much but if you have sensitive/acne-prone/combination skin, then this is a must buy. It is created from steam distillation process and does not have any color unlike so many in the market. It comes in a plastic spray bottle. Whenever I have applied this in the day, it feels like my face is drinking water. That's how much hydrating this feels. Smells of beautiful roses ofcourse. Must have product in my skin care routine
Cleansers
Subject : Gentle cleanser
Comment : This comes in a plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. It has no color and doesn't lather. It has a mild smell to it which I am not a fan of. This face wash is gentle on the skin and doesn't break my sensitive skin out. My skin is acne-prone and it didn't give me any breakouts yet. I follow this up with the Kama Rose water and my skin feels super clean and fresh. This cleanser being mild won't remove your makeup . It is best to use it on a makeup-free face or double cleanse with it. When I have makeup on, I use a oil like coconut or olive oil and massage my face and remove everything with cotton or tissue. After that I use this face wash and my skin feels clean and fresh. Good for sensitive and/or acne-prone skin.
Sheet Masks
Subject : Effect lasts for only few hours
Comment : I got this mask as a part of #TrialSquad. This mask claims give your skin hydration, moisture, brightening and smoothening. Also claims to tighten your skin and provide anti-aging property to it. It is made for dry skin , so I did experience sticky-ness after using this mask. I kept this for around 15 minutes and removed this after that. My skin definitely felt very hydrated and a tighter for a few hours. So it definitely does what it claims. However, the effects last only for a few hours and the next day I didn't notice much difference in my skin. The Skin Clinic range from Innisfree gave me a glow for few days. Good to use before any event/functions. Recommended.
Sheet Masks
Subject : Good mask
Comment : This mask fits perfectly on my face and neck area. I didn't need to adjust it. It claims to provide Lightening, Brightening, Revitalizing,Lifting and Firming. I used this after cleansing my face and put this mask on my face for 15 min as instructed. I followed it up with the serum. The mask itself felt that it was enough for my oily skin. I did feel that my skin looked hydrated and nourished overall. It did not brighten or lighten my spots as claimed. This mask is suited best if you have an event to attend to immediately. Its effect won't last long and the next day my skin looked same as it did before. Overall, it was more of a hydrating mask for me more than anything else. Best suited for Dry to Normal Skin.
Sheet Masks
Subject : Good
Comment : I have used almost every sheet mask in this range by the Face Shop and these are nourishing. If you live in a humid climate and have combination-oily skin, then these might be a bit sticky to feel. But if you have dry skin or live in drier conditions, these work pretty well. These do not fit my face as perfectly as I would like as the mask cut out of the eys is too close to my eyes. So I always need to adjust that. Do not keep the mask on your face for more than 15-20 min, as keeping it for too long reverses the process. These are good mask for that quick pick me up for your skin.
Body Wash
Subject : Spa in a bottle
Comment : I got this as part of Glamrada Trial Squad and I was blown away as soon as I used it. Packaging: This comes in a cylindrical tin container and with a note which goes into detail about the product and its ingredients. Product: The cleanser is a cream-coloured and has pearly look to it. It smells divine. It contains labdanum and patchouli extracts which give it that divine fragrance. Application: It is best used with a loofah. Experience: It lathers just like a normal shower gel would. I took 2 pumps of the cleanser on a wet loofah and that was sufficient. Most shower gels leave your skin squeaky clean and dry. This cleanser, however, left skin clean, smooth, moisturized and smelled relaxing! The biggest difference was that my skin felt very hydrated. Everyone in my home was asking me what did I use while bathing because it left a refreshing scent! Overall, I highly recommend this cleanser especially in winter months, when our skin needs that extra care. At INR 594, it is priced a bit expensive but it delivers what it claims. Additional info: Made in India Not tested on Animals Dermatologically tested No parabens or sulphate Follows GMP guidelines
Moisturizer
Subject : Vitamin E Cream
Comment : I bought this product because it was for oily skin. But after months of use I realized this was actually helping my acne breakout. This product contains Isopropyl Palmitate which is highly comedogenic and will not suit acne prone skin. Other than that, if you have normal skin or skin which is not acne prone, it might suit you. It is affordable and easily available online and offline.
Body Butter
Subject : Glow body butter
Comment : Cost: INR 610 Packaging: This body butter by satliva comes in a tin container the size of a palm. The body butter has a delicious cocoa and perppermint scent to it. The body butter is 40 gms in quantity and although that might seem less, you only need a very small amount of the product since it is very concentrated. Texture: The body butter has a texture like a solidified oil. The body butter melts when rubbed in the fingers. It applies nicely and gives a very healthy glow to the skin. The product will take time to absorb on the skin and does feel a bit heavy for my liking. The body butter is made from hemp seed oil, cocoa butter, moringa oil, jojoba oil, beeswax and perppermint oil. It does not contain any chemicals. I do think this is a tad expensive but it is made with good quality products and is free of chemicals. Overall I do recommend this and I am impressed by its lovely scent and the healthy glow it gives to my skin!
Moisturizer
Subject : Not for oily or combination skin
Comment : I received this product as part of Glamrada Trial box. Cost: INR 750 for 20 gm of product Packaging: This cream comes in a tin container. On opening the tin, it has a lovely raspberry and peppermint oil Texture:This is an oil based face cream made from hemp seed oil, mango butter, red raspberry oil, geranium oil, carrot seed oil and tea tree oil. You only need a small quantity to apply. I take a small amount and apply all over my face and neck. This cream is too heavy for my face and since I live in a humid city like Mumbai, it makes it too greasy for my use. It is best for people with dry skin or who like in dry or cooler climates. It also does not spread easily on my skin. Having said that, I do use this as a lip balm and it nourishes my lips very well and doesn't feel waxy. This cream has no chemicals and is made from cold pressed oil. It is suggested to use this within 6 months of opening the product, since it has no chemicals. Overall, this is not a bad product per se but definitely not for me. Also the price could have been a little less.
