Caramel & Blue Makeup Look | Valentines Day Makeup 2

Last week I posted a video on YouTube featuring a makeup look with caramel and deep blue combination. I have been really fond of blue eyeliners since the longest time and I wanted to try a look especially keeping in mind the Valentines day. With lots of pink and red makeup looks flooding the internet, I wanted to choose a different theme just in case you have already had an overdose of these two shades… not that I detest a soft romantic pink makeup look or a bold red statement look, I just wanted to give other colors a chance on a date night.

Holo & Chrome Jeweled Nails | Nail Art Tutorial

Ever since holographic and chrome nail trends have come into the picture, I am hooked. It’s always so hard for me to choose one of the two mesmerizing effects, this time I decided to play with both and absolutely loved the way it turned out. Nail pigments like these work best on gel nails. With regular nail polish the results aren’t the same and of course, the wear time is much less. Also, since I am traveling, it made perfect sense to go for gel nails as there would be no time for manicure fixes.

Winter Glam Makeup ft. Bold Lip

If you have been following my blogs for a while, you would already know that my comfort zone lies in softer neutral looks. Since past couple of months, I have been quite experimental and letting the old habits break. I had so much fun trying my hand on cut crease, halo eye makeup looks and a super bold lip was the next thing on the list. Finally, after the longest time of shying away from dark lipsticks, I finally tested the boldest lip shade in my collection.

Simple Glowy Makeup | Unicorn Makeup Tutorial

When in doubt, I like to opt for simple makeup looks. A simple glowy makeup can be blindly chosen for any occasion. It’s that one look which is just so versatile and suits everyone. I think especially during winters, glowy skin looks very refreshing.  To make this a bit exciting, I used a beautiful unicorn eyeshadow form the Colorpop Golden State of Mind eyeshadow palette. You can very well wear this look to work or college… The tutorial below will guide you step by step.

Lip Balm for a Busy Winter Morning

Disclosure: This post is in collaboration with Kiss Me Honey, the products were sent to me by the brand, but my opinion on them is absolutely genuine and true.

Chapped lips, flaky skin, and dry cuticles are my winter dreads! Regular and timely moisturization is surely the key to happy skin during winters but it isn’t as simple as it sounds. A busy winter morning may not leave you with enough time for self-care, this is when I reach out for a lip balm for most of my skin concerns.

I use a lip balm not only to treat chapped lips but also as a quick fix for dry patches on the skin and sometimes also to prevent blisters from shoes. Now since a lip balm is one of my beauty must-haves, it has to be safe and effective.

The Coffee Scrub – Rose | REVIEW

Face exfoliation is something which is talked about and is part of the skin care ritual. Full body exfoliation is unfortunately neglected. Getting soft healthy skin is no rocket science, it’s just the right products and the following a routine.

The Coffee Scub was generous to send this product to me and it’s been a while since I started using this, in rose variant and here is what I think about the product.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor – OBSESSION | Review





A few months back, Revlon launched their liquid lipsticks, which claims to be lightweight and give high definition velvety matte color. Also this is said to be moisturizing with a unique gel formula. I was excited to try! I got the shade HD Obsession which is a bright, cool toned fuchsia pink. Here is a detailed review on this product.

Packaging

I love lipsticks having transparent packaging! It is so convenient to pick the shade you want to wear. I was quite impressed to see their packaging, it comes in a transparent matte bottle with a silver top, the applicator is a slight disappointment. It’s too firm… almost feels like you are applying the product with a stick. Little flexibility would have been good.

Quality and Texture

The product rightly claims to be lightweight and moisturizing. It glides on smoothly giving high pigmented color in 1-2 swipe. I love the creamy matte finish it gives as soon as you apply the product, which after an hour turns velvety matte. It sits comfortably on the skin. It also has a strong bubble gum scent to it, which I personally love. I don’t mind scented products, but if you do, this is not the right pick for you.

Wearability

It lasts very well for 6-7 hours, after which it starts to fade. But one can do a good 8 hour outing wearing this lipstick without worrying about touch up.

It does transfer very easily which is a downside, but as the creamy matte texture sets to a more velvety matte, the transferring decreases.

4/5

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

This liquid lipstick from revlon is close to perfection! Here are some points that pull it back a little…

  1. It transfers a lot.
  2. The applicator isn’t very comfortable to use
  3. It’s price is slightly on the higher side.
