Hello Beauties !!!

I had recently reviewed Avant Pop eyeshadow palette from NYX ( Click to Read ) . This is another fab product from NYX which I love.It is their Soft Matte Lip Creme in the shade San Paulo which is a liquid lipstick.

Now here are the reasons what makes it ‘YAY

-> The formulation of this lipstick is like a thick liquid but it is easy to apply.

> It smells nice, somewhat like Vanilla.

-> This shade – San Paulo is a beautiful strawberry pink colour and it suits any skin tone.

-> Can be used as a everyday colour, both for day and night look.

-> It is long lasting and lasts for a good amount of 4 to 5 hours.

-> Very simple packaging, nothing fancy and travel friendly.

-> For a liquid lipstick, it is really very affordable.

Now here are the reasons what makes it ‘NAY

-> Although it is long lasting, it is not completely transfer proof.

-> Not very smooth to apply and feels a bit dry.

-> I noticed the lipstick beginning to dry out inside the package after a few months. I am not completely sure if I may have not tightened the lid properly and that’s the reason for it to dry out.

This lipstick can easily be a affordable dupe for M.A.C cremesheen lipstick in Full Fuchsia ( Review here) except that M.A.C  is not a liquid lipstick, but the shade  exactly matches.

Price : Rs 600 / 6 $ for 0.27 fl.oz

Ingredients : Isohexadecane, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Dimethicone, Beeswax/Cera Alba/Cire d’Abeille, Glyceryl Behenate/Eicosadioate, Talc, Cyclopentasiloxane, Propylene Carbonate, Silica, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Rosin/Colophonium/Colophane, Barium Sulfate (CI 77120), Phenoxyethanol, Flavor/Aroma, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Yellow 6 Lake (CI 15985), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Red 6 (CI 15850), Red 7 (CI 15850), Red 28 Lake (CI 45410).

So to sum it all up, this is a very good liquid lipstick. Do give it a try 🙂

Hello There !!!

This is a different kind of post. I wanted to tell you some of the very useful  hacks using Rubbing Alcohol which can be used to clean literally anything without damaging the products. I had seen some of these on YouTube and wanted to try out if these really work. So here it is.

1. Cleaning devices – It cleans phones, laptops, iPad , watches , TV screen .

2. Cleaning shoes – It can be used for cleaning sandals, shoes and it also removes any stain . I would not recommend it on leather shoes. I tried it and it did not help much with stains.

3. Fix broken makeup – Yes this is huge. You know the mini heart attack you get when you drop some of your favourite makeup , well you don’t need to worry anymore 🙂

So these are the things you need.

Rubbing Alcohol

Paper Wipes

Small towel

Q tip ( ear bud )

Spoon

Tweezer (optional)

For laptop, cellphones and other electronics:

-> Spray a few drops of rubbing alcohol on the paper towel.

-> Wipe and clean using the towel.

You can see the amount of dust collected from the keyboard.

-> To clean the keyboard and USB slot , use a Q tip dipped in rubbing alcohol . It is completely safe.

For sandals:

 

Before

The right sandal is cleaned up

-> Spray rubbing alcohol directly on the shoes

-> Use a piece of cloth and rub the stains .

-> You can also use it to clean inside the shoes.

-> Spray baby powder for shoes to be smelling fresh :). This is optional

 

For broken makeup products :

-> Spray some rubbing alcohol on the product till it’s soggy.

-> Break it into powder using a tweezer or any sharp object.

-> Use a few more drops of the rubbing alcohol and use a spoon to even out .

-> Press a paper wipe on it and then remove all the excess from the sides.

-> Place it in freezer for around 4 to 5 hours and you are all set to use it again:)

You can use it to fix powder, eyeshadow and pretty much anything.

In case you are wondering where to get rubbing alcohol from, I ordered it here and it’s really affordable .

Hope this was useful 🙂 Do try it out and let me know 🙂

 

Until Next Time,

XOXO,
