Hits (Liquid Lipsticks)

Standard

The final HIT Product of the week is Liquid Lipsticks.Β  I will be starting Products I wont buy / Flops soon.

But today lets talk about Liquid lipstick, lately these lipsticks have blow everyone’s mind. I only knew Limecrime who used to sell these and then suddenly other companies started selling these.

As you all know I love purple, I was on a hunt for a perfect purple for a really long time. Then finally I found it at IMATS. And the funny part was I wasn’t planning on going to IMATS this year but then last min I just booked the tickets and went lol.

Anyways coming back to Liquid lipstick’s I was really obsessed with it when I got the Limecrime’s Red Velvet liquid lipstick but couldn’t find other colour’s with that formula and finally when I saw it at IMATS I went Super CRAZY. I just had to pick it up πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Surrealist

But here I am actually talking about the texture of Liquid lipstick, when applied it looks like a gloss but dries matte. And they are super stay on. Until you eat some oily food, otherwise you don’t have to touch up your lipstick let’s say its KISS PROOF πŸ˜‰

As mentioned many companies are selling these lipstick’s few to name is Anastasia Beverly hills, Coloured Raine, Dose of Colour, and of course Cailyn.

Have you girls tried this, if you do plan on let me know ❀

Hits (Highlighter)

Standard

I have been waiting to talk about highlighter’s for sooo long. I don’t mind if I don’t contour but I need to highlight, I need that disco ball glow as it makes your skin look fresh like you have a healthy glow from within πŸ˜€

The best so far is Kiko eyeshadow number 208. Thanks to my sister for sending it to me all the way from LONDON.

Kiko eyeshadow 208

 

It’s also known to be a dupe of MAC cosmetics Whisper of Guilt. How true is that I am not sure as I haven’t used it. But it still didn’t stop me to try the dupe lol. I instantly fell in love with it. Most of the times when I used highlighter they always looked so chalky on me, then I thought what if I wet the brush and apply it as a wet eyeshadow.Β  And it made me look like a disco ball (not that I am complaining). Only if this songΒ  ‘SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND’ had released that time lol.

The next one I want to try is Makeup for Ever’s pro sculpting duo. Have heard amazing things about it.

So do you have a favorite highlighter? Do share in the comments below would love to hear it πŸ™‚

 

 

Hits (Foundation)

Standard

Today’s HIT Product is Foundation.

I normally do not like Drug store foundation cause they don’t have more colour options and it never matches the Indian skin tones, as it has pink tones in it.

But the Loreal infallible foundation its completely different, It has yellow tones in it and also is Demi matte. The only issue is that if you have a dry complexion this foundation can be really really dry for you. But if you are oily or combination skin you will love it. It sets quickly like a powder finish. It stay’s matte at least for 6 hours or little more but not 24 hours. I normally do not set it with powder as it’s not required but if you want you can depending on how matte you want your look to be. You need to set it really fast or else you may find it looking patchy or flaky in some area.

So I am in the colour Fresh beige, you can say a mix between MAC’s NC40 + NC30. But I do find it looking grey around my chin. I think its because I have uneven skin tone. And I need to mix foundations to get an even colour.

L’oreal Infallible 24 Hours Foundation.

Do you think you will give this foundation a try, I advice you do as its the Best for Summer and also easy on the pocket.

And if you do try it or have tried it let me know.

 

Hits (Primers)

Standard

Today I will be talking about Primers – Eye and Face.

Many ask me this question if its important to have an additional product in your makeup routine. My answer is yes because it helps your makeup to last long and fresh.

How many of you have had issues with your foundation oxidizing and eyeshadow creasing. But with the use of a primer your eyeshadow wont crease and your natural oils will be at bay which will also not oxidize your foundation.

My favorite eye and face primer is the same as its been always. I had also mentioned it in my Two things I cant live without.

Its Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer and Benefits POREfessional face primer. porefessionalud-eyeshadow-potion

The POREfessional primer – helps to reduce the appearance of pores and mattifies the skin. It gives a clean canvas for you to work on.

And the Urban Decay Eye primer – This primer keeps your eye shadow crease-free while making color more vibrant and providing a smoother application.

Have you tried any primers? Do you have a favorite?

Do you have any other questions with regards to primers, let me know.

 

 

Hits ( Eye Lashes and Glue)

Standard

I know I said I will be speaking about primers today, but I thought let me finish with the eye’s 1st.

If you know me you know I love FULL ON GLAM. But when I go out to the mall / walk etc the only thing I don’t put are my lashes. I normally put false lashes on occasions. Most of the times I get asked if I am going for a party or prom even without my lashes LOL πŸ˜‰

So my favorite lashes are anything that are thick and full. That’s why this time when I went to IMATS I added Velour and Esqido Lashes (I am still to try them) and the another important thing is lash glue obviously or how will you stick your lashes on. I picked up a vegan lash glue.

Eyelashes – So far I have loved House of lashes, because of their thin band it easily bends to the shape of the eye. Their different style’s look so fierce but they are wearable and wont make you look super dramatic. If you have been following me you know my favorite ones are Temptress, Sirens and Tigress. I know by adding Velour and Esqido to the list my favorite’s will be growing soon. House of Lashes aka HOL speaks for them self. It is one of the favorite brands for most makeup artists.

True Glue had followed me long long time back on facebook and I always wanted to try it so this time they came to IMATS Vancouver and without thinking twice I got it. The reason being is they are super natural or vegan you can say. It don’t smell like fish tho it takes little longer to get tacky but it stays put and doesn’t budge coz it doesn’t irritates the eye. I used to use Duo lash glue in dark. It smells horrible and my eyes would always water (because of Latex).

Why True glue you will ask me, its because of their ingredients such as chamomile, rosewater and biotin True Glue is actually beneficial for your skin and natural lashes! True glue is the first adhesive of its kind, it’s made from completely all natural ingredients that are actually good for your skin and lash growth. Dermatologist tested, latex free and not tested on animals. You wouldn’t knowingly eat harmful toxins, so stop ingesting them!

I feel every girl should try false lashes once in their life. I used to be like no ways am I going to wear lashes its so unnatural. But after I did, I saw my self in the mirror and said where have you been my whole life *shocked eyes*. It brings the whole look together.

So if you have ever thought of wearing falsies but had 2nd thoughts. Trust me think no more try it and you will be amazed πŸ™‚

PS- I am not paid to do this review. But again I would like to thank True glue for featuring me on their instagram

Tomorrow for sure I will be speaking about primers. ❀

Hits (Favorite Product) Eyebrow

Standard

I am back with the 2nd Favorite product, as I mentioned yesterday its the most amazing waterproof eyebrow product.

Its the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow (Pomade) Its creamy constancy which helps build and fill in your eyebrows. I personally didn’t know how much of a difference groomed filled-in eyebrows make to complete the look. I used to use lip pencils to fill in my eyebrows and to be honest it looked horrible, it made me look like a devil lol.

eyebrow

The above picture I have actually put in few options depending on what look you like. The Makeup forever and Anastasia dipbrow is a gel / pomade type consistency and the Anastasia brow wiz is a pencil / crayon. The Gel helps to draw in helping you to give the hair like effect if you have a bald spot where as the pencil just helps you fill in place where you have sparse hair.

On days where I like to have a full on glam makeup I used the gel and for simple morning look I used the brow wiz. In the picture above I have used the Anastasia dip brow.

I use the Morphe S25 brush (mentioned in my last post) and sketched my eyebrow and draw on my bald spot like I was mimicking the eyebrow hair (you can not see it as the pigmentation is amazing and no matter what you do it will not budge)

The size of this product is 4.0g / 0.14oz. You can use this for life as little goes a long way. So if you ask if its worth the hype then my answer will be YES.

My next favorite that I will talk about is primers.

Cya tomorrow.

Hits (Favorite Products)

Standard

I am going to be doing 1 favorite product a day for one week starting today. Will be giving some tip and tricks and why I love this particular product. After this I will be doing Flop Products.

Also I am a person who doesn’t follow the herd, I do my own research before I spend money on a particular product. I also want to add that I am not being paid to do this post so I am going to be totally frank when I say why I love the product.

I will be start with eyes and then face and then lips, so my 1st favorite product is

The Morphe S25 Angle liner / Spoolie brush (Eyebrow brush)

This brush is used to help define your eyebrows and it is also a dual sided synthetic brush. The reason why I love this brush is because its bristles are packed together which helps you to create a thin line when using a cream / gel. The spoolie helps you to brush your eyebrow hair up and also remove excess product while applying the product to the eyebrow. This brush actually does the job for you πŸ™‚ (just try to have a steady hand and you will get the best result)

You can get this brush (and many other amazing affordable brushes) on their website. I had the chance to go to IMATS this year and last year so I saved lots on shipping. But even with shipping their products are totally worth it. Its cheaper than MAC but similar to MAC.

I am sure many of you must have noticed some parts of your eyebrows have a bald spot or sparse hair (like me). Tomorrow I will talk about my 2nd favorite product that gives you amazing eyebrows and is also water proof.
