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.

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 (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.

 

 

December Favorites

Standard

Happy New Year 2014 to all my readers.

I am doing my 2nd post of my favorite products of the month.

December was a little calm for me didnt really experiment much I guess even I wanted a break (maybe not) LOLz cause I still have my favorite products for the month of December to share πŸ˜‰

So the 1st product is

1) Koleston hair colour – I have been colouring my hair for about 2 years now and I prefer doing it at home as I really dont trust much salons in hair colouring as they keep adding stuffs to the hair and it gets dry and brittle. Its not like I haven’t coloured or highlighted my hair in the salon I have done full head highlights , crown highlights and colouring my bangs but then I realized that my hair started to break alot. Koleston is a product I have been using for about 2 years now and I really love it, it doesnt make my hair dry or brittle. The best part about this is its in a foam style. You can use it as if you are shampooing your hair. You got to leave it for 40 mins – 50 mins depending on how deep you want the colour to beΒ  (but do not keep the colour for more then 50 mins as it can damage the hair, read the instructions if you are not sure). One thing you will notice that after the application you might not find or find a very little difference in the colour but not to worry as after each wash the colour enhances and gets more prominent which is what I love about it. I use the colour 7/0 medium blonde.

2) Ceramic Blow drying hair brushes – I have heard alot about these brushes but didnt use them till now. I had also got one with my makeup kit but still didnt bother to use it till recently. After using it I was like ‘why havent I used this amazing brush before’ It makes hair drying and styling super smooth and easy and doesnt break a lot of hair during the process. I know giving alot of heat to your hair is harmful but then you have heat protection spray/serum to help them from damage. It gives an amazing natural bounce and curl to the hair. I have a fat and a thin brush. Fat helps to create nice bounce and waves to the hair and the thin helps to style your bangs. You can also use the thin brush to curl a small part of you hair. (By picking a small part of your hair from the side of your ears and curling it if you plan to do a updo)

3) MAC Studio Fix Foundation and Powder foundation (Compact Powder)- I started to use MAC cosmetics in 2011 and since then no looking back. I love how it create an even canvas to the face. It is a full coverage foundation and the compact is semi coverage. If I need a more sophisticated look I use both the foundation and then compact to set the look and if I need just a simple everyday look I just use the compact powder (it doesn’t covers all the blemishes and dark circles but lightens it to an extent, but if you want you can conceal your blemishes and dark circles and then set it with the powder). I am a NC 42 in foundation and NC43.5 in the compact powder.

And last but not the least

4) Sleek 3 in 1 Blush in Pumpkin – I am in love with the blush palette as it has 3 colours Orange, Red and Pink. It is travel friendly and you dont have to think to carry individual blushes as these colours can go on everything just mix and match. They are so pigmented that you have to be careful when you apply as you can end up having a lot of the product on your face. This product is so amazing that it speaks for itself.

Till next time ..stay safe and blessed
