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
