KIKO MILANO completed their 20 years of beauty in 2017, that is such a big milestone to achieve! It launched in India in 2016 and is spreading globally. I got gorgeous lipsticks and nail polishes from KIKO, which are worth sharing. I haven’t tried any of their products till now, extremely excited to try these on. I will be sharing a review soon.
I am quite liking copper nowadays, This pretty shade looks superb on the eyes, I remember picking this quad from maybelline while I was doing my wedding shopping a few years back… back then I wasn’t so deep a makeup lover, I believed in having just the essentials and a copper bronzy quad seemed to fit in perfect accordance with all the outfits.
You can never ever go overboard with a black eyeliner, I think it’s the most commonly used cosmetic around the world… And why not, a black eyeliner is something that fits very well in every occasion, be it an everyday look or the dramatic bridal look, a black eyeliner is what most of us reach for to complete the effect. My favorite liquid black eyeliners are the ones which have a pen sort of applicator. That makes the application so quick and mistake proof. Here is a detailed review of the Milani Eye Tech Perfection Eyeliner.
The packaging reminds me of The Curve Eyeliner by NYX , It has a curved body to give a better control over the application. The felt tip allows you to create a thin, medium or a heavy line, as you desire! It’s extremely comfortable to hold, beginners would love it for sure. Talking of the down side, I faced slight issue working on a winged liner with this felt tip applicator, I wish it was slightly more flexible.
Quality & Texture
The product claims to give a full color definition in one stroke, well… that isn’t really true, I need to coat 2-3 times to get a deep pigmented black line.
It gives a matte black finish, which is how I like my eyeliner to be.
Another good thing is, It dries quickly as you apply, you wouldn’t need to sit for long with your eyes closed, which is a common case with most of the liquid eyeliners. Also it saves a few extra minutes getting ready.
The product isn’t waterproof, it is some what water resistant. It smudges easily on oily lids, so if you have oily lids, this is not the right product for you, if you don’t, make sure not to apply moisturizer on your eyelids as a part of your daily moisturizing routine.
It lasts for good 8 hours if you have powdered your eyelids prior application, else it stays well for about 6 hours.
Why it couldn’t make 5/5?
- The pen felt tips makes application along the ends slightly difficult, I wish it was more flexible.
- It smudges easily if you apply a regular moisturizer on your lids, or have oily lids naturally.
Exploring makeup brands is one of my favorite thing! e.l.f cosmetics caught my eye recently and I was compelled to give it a try. The products look quite good and they seem to cover almost everything in a price range that your wallet would never mind. I enjoyed my mini makeup haul from elf cosmetics and would love to share it with you all. The products are still under observation, so the reviews will follow soon enough. Meanwhile you can enjoy the ride through my elf cosmetics haul!
e.l.f Tinted Moisturizer
I was running out of a tinted moisturizer and this was a good chance to pick a new one. I picked the shade named ivory, it’s an exact match to my skin tone.
e.l.f Gel & Powder Eyebrow Kit
I have been quite particular about my eyebrow routine ever since bold brows trend flooded in. Though I am still in love with my all time favourite Maybelline Fashion Brow Pencil, trying something new is always fun!
e.l.f Velvet Matte Lipstick
How can one not pick a peppy bright lipstick to officially welcome spring!!?? I just had to follow the ritual and loved my new pick Flirty Flamingo which is a perfect blend of red pink and coral.
I hope you guys enjoyed my mini makeup haul from elf cosmetics as much as I did 🙂 Stay tuned for the reviews 🙂

The wedding season is in full swing and I see a lot of new trends coming up. The brides these days are upto new looks and color combinations. I too tried a variant and experimented with a Boho Bridal Makeup. The look is demure and understated overall, intensifying the features in a subtle manner.
This look can also work best for engagements or other wedding functions if you are wanting to go more dramatic on your wedding day.
Here I have kept a very light hand at contouring and emphasized more on making the skin look fresh and glowy.

A mascara is my essential tool these days and I was thrilled and extremely happy to try out this new launch from Maybelline. The brand has lately come up with really exciting new products one of them being the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara.
What the brand claims
The mascara comes in a plastic and cardboard outer packaging (which I disposed off in the excitement of trying out the product as soon as it arrived! Totally forgot to take a picture of the outer packaging 🙁 ). Talking of the mascara tube, it’s sturdy plastic and the shape is similar to the colossal mascara tube.
The wand, I can say is unique! I am really fond of trying various wands. In fact I personally like plastic bristles wand better. This one has plastic bristles placed in a unique manner. The inner curve helps apply mascara from the roots to the ends and the outer curve helps fan out the lashes. It’s comfortable for coating the upper lashes. For the lower lashes, it’s slightly a messy affair. I feel a thin comb like wand helps coat lower lashes neatly and in a much better way. But with practice I have gained a better control and the mess has reduced!
Quality and Wear ability
The mascara is soft creamy in texture which makes it very easy to coat each lash separately. It does dry quickly once applied. It’s intense black color , waterproof nature and it’s ability to last the whole day makes it a superb choice.
It adds a considerable amount of length and volume which increases with every coat. For me 2-3 coats work the best. The images below will help you show the difference it makes.
How to use/ apply the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
Step 1. Use inner curve to reach the roots of lashes. Sweep from the root to tip of lashes.
Step 2. Use the outer curve for a more fanned out and fuller look. Sweep from the root to tip of lashes.
Step 3. Do not let mascara dry in between coats.
Step 4. Easily remove mascara with Eye Makeup Remover.
Pice: INR 500/-
Availabilty: You can buy it online from NYKAA or from the nearest maybelline counter.
Why it couldn’t make 5/5?
The application on the lower lashes is slightly difficult.

Monochrome makeups are really exciting and I realized this when I did one! Last few days were all about fun with family and friends and I did get a chance to play with some new makeup looks. I tried on this Soft Brown Monochrome Makeup and really loved the overall look. It’s best for a day outing. If you are wanting to wear it during the night, you can add a pair of falsies are maybe deepen up the eyeliner.
This look was really simple to create and didn’t really require a lot of products.
