Review & LOTD: Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 13

At first I didn’t liked its thick formula and started feeling  the product was bit heavy on my lips, BUT later on after few uses Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 13 is my top favorite MLBB shade of the year 2014!

The lip polish tube looks really adorable and I liked how neat the color looks from inside, like painted. Weird!?! The lip polish has thick creamy texture, well this November it went very thick + creamy. The lip polish gives impressively smooth color layer on lips and the glossy hue with subtle shimmer doesn’t feel heavy or sticky. I really liked the bent-applicator given. It provides good grip on layering part. Glam 13 is an excellent everyday peachy brown lip color. The color does looks dark in tube but it looks pretty on lips! It perks up my complexion turning into livelier and more cheerful. The wear time is about 4 plus hours and fades off slowly. The formula is very hydrating and light, also the lip polish doesn’t settle into fine lines even after 2 plus hrs. The color covers up my pigmented lips very beautifully giving smooth and even color.

Beauty: Eyeliners

Question: How much do you like using eyeliner?
Answer:  My day never ends without using eyeliner :thumbs up:
Okay that’s a total lie! I give this answer for most the products I suppose :D
Eyeliner is the first makeup product I used in school days I think. It’s one of the most important beauty essentials for us. So here I’m sharing data about eyeliners and I hope you find the post useful and interesting!

1.Liquid Eyeliner:
Liquid liners are so popular since ages. Liquid liners help to achieve any eyeliner style plus for lining eye lids thin, liquid liners are best! Its bit difficult to handle at first once you are good with it then it won’t budge at all. There are LOT of options available, whether you like it matte, satiny or glossy, options are plentiful. If you have oily lids (like me) try matte finish liners, dry lids then satin-y finish will be perfect. Always look for thin brush tip or applicator so that it provides good control over definition. If you don’t like using the given applicator then try angled brush. When drawing out thicker lines, try layering strokes over.

Picks-- MAC Liquidlast liner, Max factor Master Piece glide & define liquid liner, Rimmel Exaggerate liner, Sephora Collection long-lasting eye liner, Maybelline Hyper glossy liquid liner, Lakme insta liner, Lakme Fantasy Shimmer liner, Eyetex Liner, Elle 18 black liner, Maybelline Hyper sharp liner and NYX liquid liner.

Beauty: 5 Lip Colors Every Woman Needs

Hey Everyone! Next to eye liners, lipsticks are must-have for me in my makeup arsenal. Recently I started stocking-up essential lip colors, yet sometimes we feel stumped with too many options available out there. Matching our skin tone with a perfect tube is lot difficult right? If you feel stuck with choices then here I share top 5 essential lip colors every woman needs in her makeup pochette.

1.Pretty Pink
Trying out lip colors with subtle pink undertones suits best and also goes good with your natural lips color. I prefer mauve pinks for natural looking. 

Picks-- MAC Lipstick in Snob, MAC Mehr Lipstick, Revlon Matte Lipstick in Matte it Over, Revlon Color Burst in Mauve, Faces Go Chic Lipstick in Carnation Pink and Maybelline Mirrored Mauve.

2.Creamy Nude
Nude hues are best for daily wear. But finding out a right neutral shade that matches our skin is LOT difficult. Yet there are options to choose, try to find a neutral shade with creamy texture so that it gives you full plumped neutral lips. I’m using Colorbar Take Me As I’m in Bare Dare Pink, which is pretty good.

Picks-- MAC Hug Me Lipstick, MAC Syrup, MAC Cream in your Coffee, Colorbar Take Me As I’m in Bare Dare Pink, Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick Bare, Colorbar Cream Cup, Maybelline My Mahogany, Maybelline Totally Toffee and Faces Satin Matte Lipstick Chestnut.

Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Totally Toffee Review & Swatch

Love nude hues?? Then Totally Toffee lip color just gives you the right oomph to your lips! 

Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Totally Toffee

My Thoughts:
Maybelline Colorsensational lipstick range has more than 30 shades to choose from.
Totally toffee is a beautiful nude brown lip color. The packaging is nothing fancy at all. The nude hue does have minimal pink undertones but mostly this is a super neutral brown shade. The lip color has a hint of coffee scent, that’s absolutely pleasant. The texture is quite creamy, not very much and glides smoothly on lips. I really liked the texture part so much sits comfortably without making any heavy feel on lips. Lipstick has minimal glossy finish that makes the color more gorgeous. This is a very suitable shade for work place/college.  I tried the color at Maybelline counter where the shade looked bit pale and okayish on me yet I couldn’t resist the color, so I picked. It helps to keep my lips moisturized for more than 2 hours. The wear time is 3 hours for me it definitely need touch ups in between. It doesn’t stain lips nor dry them.  The shade doesn’t suit all skin tones. I’m a medium complexion, I just dab the color on lips and top it with clear gloss. It just works that way for me.
Overall this is gorgeous nude lip color that is best for daily wear. I’m not sure the hue will suit all skin tones so better try tester before buying. 

Rating: 3.75/5
I hope you find the review useful! Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Totally Toffee is priced Rs.375 for 4.2g

I’d love to try more lipsticks from Colorsensational Range. Is there any shade I must try? Share your comments below!
Good Luck xx

Beauty: Favorite Body Lotions Ever

I may not be dedicated at using hand creams/moisturizers but I’m a sucker for body lotions. One of my favorite Body Lotions for the season is Vaseline Body Lotions. Oh you’ve probably guessed that already didn’t you?  
Winter or summer, body lotions are must for me. I would slather some body lotion on every time I stepped out of the shower. I wasn’t very proper with body lotions back in college days, I was really lazy or I never bothered much. I’m using Vaseline body lotions for past 3 years and I can’t really live without it. This is a more or like a BIG super multitasking product/s for me. And I’ll get to that topic soon in future posts!

Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 Cleanser + Scrub + Mask

Quick Review:
Hello! As you may know, I’ve been splurged over Vichy Skincare products last week, well you can check out the haul here. The sachet sample given is 7ml and I’m using it last 5 days still some ml left. Little is more! Skin feels soft, smooth and clean after the 3-step process. Recently I do not like the products that leave my skin very squeaky clean, because eventually the skin secretes more sebum, Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 Cleanser + Scrub + Mask feels hydrated plus it didn’t irritate or break out skin. Salicylic acid and Glycolic acid compliments oily-acne prone skin. Product is free from soap, paraben and alcohol. I love using it, especially as a face pack. 3 in 1 is probably a best choice for travel skincare. Except the price I have zero issues with the product. And definitely worth trying!

Beauty: Vichy Haul

Hey Everyone! I hope you all doing great. I’m going through a bad skin phase right now and finally I gave a shot at products that I wanted to try very long. Or precisely I splurged over skincare products last week. I always wanted to pick products from a single brand for an effective skincare routine (or at least I think it would be effective) unfortunately I couldn’t past years. I reached my mid twenties this year so I’m bit serious about my skincare. 

I picked 2 products from Vichy Normaderm Range and 1 from Hydration & Radiance Range. Additionally I bought Thermal Spa Water. Plus I was provided with 3 samples. Along with few other products these are going into my skincare routine. The Mission is set to achieve hydration and even complexion. I’ll be updating the reviews and my updated skincare routine in 4 weeks time.
Note I bought all the products in Health n Glow Chennai.
