Makeup: The Five Product Face

I don’t really use many products in my daily makeup routine. I like to keep it pretty simple and precise, so I apply the basics, some kohl and throw little tint on my lips, I’m done!

Starting with my base, I love love L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder to bits. It’s one of my favorite base and it’s really easy to work with. It gives perfect matte finish to my combinational skin and doesn’t oxide in time. It blends like a dream and blurs light imperfections. 

On my eyes, I smudge some Maybelline the Colossal Kajal on my lids and then tight the lower + upper waterline. After this I apply two to three coats of Maybelline Hypercurl Volume Express Easy Wash mascara. It gives nice flick to lashes and I always reach for this mascara next to L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes.

Review: Zoeva Lip Crayon+ Sweet Heat

I got Zoeva Lip Crayon+ in my recent Luxola haul here. The Lip Crayon+ is lipstick in pencil form also serves as a lip gloss. Crayon+ comes in five different shades, Nude Hero, Second Chance, Sweet Heat, Tender Rose and Silly Love. All five colors are very pretty and wearable! These lip crayons are very similar to Clinique Chubby sticks and Bonjour Colorboost. Sweet Heat is a light peachy coral shade. The texture is soft, creamy and thick. It feels light on lips, comfortable and looks like lip balm.

Review & FOTD: L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder | Price & Buy Online India

Product Description: The first liquid powder foundation from L’Oreal Paris. Flawless nude look. No-make up feel. Revolutionary liquid transforms on contact, leaving a fresh powder-like finish. This foundation is amazingly light weight it’s like wearing no makeup at all. Just shake and apply, it’s like magic!

My Thoughts:
Magic Nude Liquid Powder is a new launched foundation range by L’Oreal Paris which gives powder like finish! They have 12 shades in this range and I chose 328 Sun Beige which is perfecto! The liquid powder comes in glass-bottle packaging. It doesn’t have squeeze tip so one must directly pour the foundation at back of the hands for the application. Liquid Powder’s texture is very creamy, soft and extremely light weight.

 I take like 2 to 3 drops for entire face and neck, dab a little over and when I start applying it’s totally feels like a powder and the finish is just like I wanted, super MATTE. Since the foundation easily blends, I use my finger tips for blending so I don’t need any brush or sponge. It does slightly cover light spots and blemishes but it won’t help with deep dark circles or spots. I do go for loose powder over foundation, and it’s just pretty good. 

My skin is getting better over dark spots and blemishes lately, so this foundation helps me to achieve that flawless Nude Makeup Look! The lasting power is for about 6 to 7 hours and it maintains a glow that lasts for 3 plus hours. It’s pretty amazing right! And you can re-apply foundation any time you want since it doesn’t provide any cakey effect. On the top, the foundation has broad spectrum SPF 18 which is too good. 

Overall L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder is the BEST. I love the light-weight creamy texture, super matte finish and the staying power. The only con is it doesn’t have squeeze cap, there are chances of spilling or overflowing. So just be careful. On whole a perfect foundation for daily wear and for flawless nude makeup-look! Highly Recommended!

Review & Haul

About the Company:
After spending a few years working in Southeast Asia, skincare-product addict Alexis Horowitz-Burdick discovered a lack of reliable and efficient e-commerce platforms offering a vast range beauty products within the region, and decided to step up to the task. Luxola was born in mid-2011. Achieving the overwhelming support of both consumers and investors, Luxola has very quickly grown into becoming the #1 destination for beauty in Southeast Asia, serving customers in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, India, Philippines, Hong Kong, Brunei, and the United Arab Emirates.

Hello my lovelies! A couple of days back I had received my haul. Finally Beauty Blender is mine, Yayyy :D is Southeast Asia’s largest Beauty E-commerce website based on Singapore is now shipping to India ^_^ The site caters more than 100 beauty & makeup brands online including Sigma Beauty, Sleek Makeup, Alpha-H, Laneige, Wet n Wild, Yves Rocher and more!

Let’s take a look what I got, shall we?

  • The Original Beauty Blender—Rs.1400
  • Philosophy Hope in a Jar --Rs.2753
  • Sleek Makeup Lipstick Palette SirenRs.1026
  • Sleek Makeup Lipstick Palette ShowgirlRs.1026
  • Zoeva Lip Crayon SweetHeatRs.560
  • Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Red-Dy or NotRs.368
  • Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Rico MauveRs.368
My Experience:
The site has well-designed layout. It’s very easy to navigate and the neat structure layout helps to find out your favorites brands/products in less than a minute. The website is now shipping to India free on all orders above Rs.2300. And below that amount one must pay flat rate Rs.950. I know its bit high right! Also when I go-through the Sleek Makeup Page, the palettes were priced Rs.1058 but its Rs.740 in Sleek Website. I’m very disappointed about that!

The site has wide-range of brands (like I already mentioned) Sigma Beauty, SK-II, Sleek Makeup, Alpha-H, Laneige, Wet n Wild, Yves Rocher etc. For India, delivery reaches in 2 to 10 business days. My order reached me over in a week time and I simply love the speed delivery. The items came in well bubble wraps around, no damage to products. 

Overall my shopping experience was simply great! I’m really excited to try the products especially the Original Beauty Blender! Beauty Frontline readers can use the code BLX-FRONT on checkout and avail 15% off on your order!

Check out and happy shopping ^_^

Round Up: Favorite Skincare of 2014

Hey everyone! Today I’m chatting ‘bout my favorite skincare picks of 2014. I hope this post will be helpful!

Starting with a Cleanser, Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Foam is my top favorite cleanser. It seems to help with little blemishes and keeps a check on acne, helps to get of whiteheads around my nose and chin. Definitely worth purchasing and this is my fourth bottle.

Next face wash, Za True White Cleansing Foam is an amazing face wash for all year around. It cleanses skin removes makeup and softens skin leaving it squeaky clean and fresh. Most importantly it doesn’t dry out skin at all! 

For night cream, Forest Essentials Jasmine & Patchouli Night Treatment Cream is my staple. It keeps skin moist, regulates oil-secretion and hydrates skin very well so my makeup goes completely smooth. It’s been more than 3 months and I’m not able to finish the tub! I simply <3 this one.

Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Miraculous Beauty Fluid is my first ever facial oil I’ve tried! It hydrates skin enough and does make a big difference in complexion. Stay tune for more deets!

As for the dark-spot corrector, Avene D Pigment Light Dark Spot Lightener is working great for spots and blemishes. I got it in my hands last December and loved the results! It sinks into skin quickly, gives matte finish. It does genuinely brighten my skin and give it more even-toned look. 

I’ve never stopped repurchasing Himalaya Neem Face Pack. I have it present in my stash like forever! It’s my all time favorite acne-mask.

For body lotion, Vaseline Aloe Body Lotion is my favorite over a decade! The body lotion has a lovely scent, hydrates skin quick and not greasy at all. I’m so addicted to this next to lip balm I think ^_^
