There are a few things which can take your breath away! I had the same feeling when a saw a colleague wearing this beautiful nailpolish. I’m someone who will not hesitate to ask even strangers about the shade or brand or where they bought their beautiful thing from; it could be cloths, accessories, makeup, shoes etc. So, I asked her and she introduced me to this beautiful nailpolish from Colorbar called ‘Dusky Mauve’.

MAC Huggable Lipcolor in Out for Passion

I bought the shade ‘Out For Passion’, which is a nice muted rose shade. It’s a very every day, hassle free color. Something that you can wear with any look and any occasion. The pigment is sheer and doesn’t build up a lot. The good thing is that it wear-off really well. It leaves a slight stain behind which looks really natural.

The formula is very similar to Revlon Lip butters, but a little better. It is really easy to apply and doesn’t feel sticky. It’s really moisturizing. I really like this for an everyday wear, especially for work, when I’m sitting in air conditioning the entire day and my skin and lips start to feel dry and dehydrated.

MAC claims this formula lasts for “up to 6 hours.” I felt that it did not last for more than 3-4 hrs without eating. I have to reapply every time I eat or drink something.

The packaging is really chic! It comes in a steel grey metal tube.

Overall, I know that I will get a lot of use out of this bullet and if it is relaunched I will pick up as many colors as I can J. I would give it a 4.5/5.

Maybelline Color Show Nail Enamel (015) Nude Skin

I saw a friend wearing this shade and I was completely blown away. Where was this all this time…it should have been in my life.

Nude Skin a light earth toned shade with a subtle cool undertone and a creamy finish. It looks more mauve in white light and more brown in yellow light. This color makes the hands look really well manicured and professional. It’s a great color for work or even school. The formula is wonderful. It applies fully opaque in 2 coats, completely streak free, dries really quickly and doesn’t chip for 4-5 days easily.

It’s a great color, especially for working women!

Colorbar Perfect Match Primer – Review

I was never a big fan of primers till I discovered L’OREAL Paris Studio Secrets Professional Smoothing Resurfacing Primer.

Since I have started using primer I have become a big fan, not that it makes my makeup go better but also because it is a great barrier between my skin and the makeup applied.

I was checking for new nailpolish when I saw the Colorbar Perfect Match Primer and I just bought it.

Colorbar says – This satiny touch oil-free primer masks fine lines and uneven texture,    making skin marvellously soft and smooth.

Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Two Way Cake : Review

I love powders with sunscreen, you don’t have to worry about the sun damage. Reapply the powder before you head out and it helps, which I know is not the correct way to reapply sunscreen. Dermatologists say that sun screen should be reapplied every 3-4 hrs after removing your makeup, which we all know is practically not possible. So every time I see a product that can be used as a touch up and with sun screen I jump to get it.

Maybelline says:

Maybelline New York introduces its thinnest two-way cake foundation with the all new Dream Satin Skin Two Way Cake Powder. Providing a non-cakey effect, ultra-breathable satin perfection and SPF 30+ protection to your skin, this product is set to become a must-have for the Spring Summer season. The unique one-film technology in the powder makes it 5X thinner than conventional powders and extremely fit for a stretchable finish that lasts 12 hours. Discover the illuminating difference with Dream Satin Skin Powder.
