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 🙂

Review : I give it 4/5 stars  🙂

 

Until then,

XOXO,

Hellos Beauties,

Recently Nykaa introduced the NYX Avant Pop eyeshadow palettes which makes your eyes pop. 6 matte shades, 3 gorgeous satin finish shades and one beautiful highlighter shade, well what else do you need in a eyeshadow palette? I have the ‘Surreal My Heart‘ in this category and I am quite impressed.

Let’s take a moment and see how gorgeous some of these shades are 🙂

You get 10 eye shadows of around 2.83 gms each and all of them are so Opaque except for shade 9.

Shade 2 and 6 are the most unique shades in this palette. 2 is a bright mint yellow but not ‘on your face’ bright and  6 is a shimmery grey colour.

Shade 3 which is a sea blue pastel colour and shade 7 which is a gorgeous blue, are the stars of this palette :). Both have a satin creamy texture and can brighten up any look.

Shade 4 brown and 5 mauve are good for the crease. Shade 1 looks amazing as a brow highlighter and I use shade 10 to get a matte liner look.

Price : Rs 1500

Ingredients :

All Shades Except Matte Black: Talc, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Kaolin, Lauroyl Lysine, Trimethylsiloxyphenyl Dimethicone, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Zinc Stearate, Dimethicone, Isostearyl Isostearate, Alumina, Quartz, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol. May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Carmine (CI 75470), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140).

Matte Black: Polymethyl Methacrylate, Kaolin, Talc, Lauroyl Lysine, Trimethylsiloxyphenyl Dimethicone, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Zinc Stearate, Dimethicone, Isostearyl Isostearate, Alumina, Quartz, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol. May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77499), Black 2 (CI 77266).

Now let us look at the YAY and NAY points for this palette.

YAY

-> Very pigmented with and without primer.

-> Long lasting

-> Unique colours

-> Blends easily

-> Sleek plastic packaging, hence travel friendly

NAY

-> Very Pricey.  I agree the quantity is much more than the other eyeshadow palettes have, but it’s not of much use.

-> No mirror included.

> Fallout, though it is very minimal and can be easily swiped off with a brush.

Without Primer

So my verdict for this one. I would say 3.5/5 mainly coz for the NYX brand, it seems to be pricey. I love everything else about it :).

Hope this review is of some help to you girls 🙂

 

Until Next Time,

XOXO,

WWGal 🙂

Hi there Beautiful,

Welcome back 🙂 ..Today I will be reviewing one of the amazing lipstick  from M.A.C. This is among their cremesheen amplified range in the shade Full Fuchsia.

img_5364Thanks to one of the girl from my besties gang, who gifted this to me:). This was way back when I wasn’t a makeup lover and lipstick was well ‘just another lipstick’  for me. But I am so glad because although I had heard about M.A.C cosmetics, I never ever owned any of their product. So this was like the first high end lipstick, my very own and definitely not the last one 😛

img_5362
Verdict :
Is this a Yay or Nay. It’s definitely a Yayyy for me and I would give it a 5 on 5 without batting my eyelid. I love everything about it. Infused with pearlized pigments and a moisturising serum blend, this cremesheen range lipstick is the new Yin and Yang for your lips:).
 
img_5363
What makes it Yay
  • It’s cream amplified that means it has a very creamy texture and glides very easily.
  • I use it without a lip liner as the pointed shape of the lipstick makes it easy to apply along the lines.
  • Like all other M.A.C. lipsticks it smells amazing.
  • Single swipe is more than enough but you can always go for another layer.
  • One of major plus points is this shade suits any skin tone be it fair, medium or deep.
  • Stays on for about 4 to 5 hours .
  • Classy packaging and travel friendly.
By the looks of it, you might feel this shade is a bit too much for morning wear but you will be wrong. There is a very similar lipstick from M.A.C in candy yum yum but unlike it, full Fuchsia never looks like on the face ‘PINK’. Infact I am quite surprised that there are a lot of reviews written on Candy yum yum but hardly any on Full Fuchsia.

Here are the other specific details on this.
 Key Claims and Benefits
  • Provides instant and long-term hydration   – True 🙂
  • Conditions lips – True 🙂
  • Provides instant high shine –  True:)
  • Dermatologist tested – Hopefully True 😛

Price : 17$ or around 1000 Rs for 3 g / 0.01 US oz
That is the usual price of M.A.C lipsticks but so much worth it. So if you are thinking of buying this, then please do not hesitate, go ahead and paint your lips pink 🙂
 
 
 
 
Until next time,
