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 (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 ( 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. ❀

Switch Between Eye Shadows (DIY)

Standard

I know its been so long I haven’t posted anything, but recently while browsing I found this amazing technique which will help us Switch between eye shadows. So I am posting my 1st small video tutorial on the same

Some of us has that one particular brush we use for the entire look, most of the times we clean the shadow with the tissue paper or a wet cloth and wait for it to dry so we can move on to the next colour. I know how important it is to switch between eye shadows while doing a smoking or transitioning between colours.

Being a Makeup Artist for me this is like the best thing as it saves so much time – like for example we use a pencil brush to smoke out below the water line with one colour and need to switch to another colour for a soft transition using the same brush.

So here it is a simple affordable technique – I am sure everyone would be having a donut bun at home if not you can purchase it from any hair accessories or apparel shop I know H&M has it.

All you have to do is wiggle the brush on the donut and voila you have a clean brush to switch to another colour.

Here is a small tutorial that will make it easy to understand – Switch between eyeshadowsΒ  ( if you see I am using a different product – but basically its the same material as the donut bun (main thing is that material). Cleaning is also easy soak it in soap water for few minutes and dry)

Let me know what did you think about it? if you use this technique do tag me πŸ™‚

PS – do use a fresh new donut and not the same you use for hairstyling LOL just making it clear πŸ˜‰

Till next time
