Faces Cosmetics Singles Eye shadow in FES00252 (Light Khaki Brown) Review


I went to faces counter at EA to check out couple of lipsticks and eye shadows. Much to my delight they had lots of everyday matte shades. Guess what?? I ended up buying 5 eye shadows and 2 lipsticks. I got three matte shades and two shimmery shades. All the shades I purchased are wearable and well pigmented.

Today I will be reviewing a gorgeous matte khaki brown color. It is extremely wearable and for my skin tone, it is a beautiful n*de shade. It is so great for those MEBB (My Eyes But Better :D ) looks. I conceal my eyes and pat this shade all over the lids and with a coat of mascara, my eyes look so pretty in a “no makeup” way.

I don’t know why, but I am in this phase where we end up breaking anything and everything. I accidentally broke my half-used Bourjois primer bottle; my brand new NYX eyeshadow which I ordered online came all broken and bruised. To top it all, I dropped this eyeshadow and broke it too. *sniff* *sniff*

Lakme Nine to five Matte Lip color in Scarlet Drill - Review

Lakme Nine to five Matte Lip color in Scarlet Drill - Review

I am fond of neutral and subtle lip colors. When Lakme launched this new range of lip colors suited especially for office going ladies, I had to check them. I went to buy a red lipstick and this is my first purchase from Lakme nine to five office stylist range.


Lakme Nine to five Matte Lip color in Scarlet Drill

Lakme Claims:

Lakmé Nine to Five brings you a range of 15 shades that sit on your lips all day long. Enriched with Vitamin E; it conditions your lips & softens them with wheat germ oil. So, perk those soft, smooth lips with a touch of matte..

The packing:

It comes in a rose gold packaging which is very fragile. Before using it even once, I dropped this lipstick accidentally and the holder got a dent on it. So you need to be really careful while handling them. It has a glossy body with white letters printed on the holder. The shade name is printed on the bottom of the holder. Many times I faced trouble that this holder doesn't close properly and I have to go on searching for the cap to put it back in place. Except that it looks attractive.

MAC Prolong Wear Lip Crème Love Forever - Review

MAC Prolong Wear Lip Crème Love Forever Review and Swatch

It is a long story, how I got hold of this lipstick. I had seen the reviews of this lipstick when I was hunting for a perfect pink lipstick and fell in love with the color. I called the MAC stores in the city to find out it was unavailable. Only the third store which I called had it in stock. The MUA told that only one piece is available so I had to rush. The next day was a holiday so I didn't waste my time and landed at the store.  The MUA who attended my call previous day was not there so his colleague started searching for that one last piece which was in stock. Surprisingly, despite the product being so much in demand and not available in stock most of the times, the MAC MUA's were not so familiar about it. This guy went on searching and finally gave up telling probably the last piece was also sold out. Then suddenly the MUA who attended my call entered the store and found the piece that was reserved for me. When I asked for a tester, he said that they don’t have tester and I had to either buy the fresh piece or forget about it. I decided to take the plunge and bought it. :D

Faces Cosmetics Ultimate Pro long wear matte lipstick in 05 Peach Blush - Review

Lots of things going on in my life and here I am writing a lipstick review. At times, doing something as if there is nothing amiss helps a lot in bringing us back to normalcy.

Faces Cosmetics Ultimate Pro long wear matte lipstick in 05 Peach Blush

Today I bring you my current favorite MLBB lipstick from the Faces Cosmetics Ultimate Pro long wear range. It is called Peach Blush 05.

It comes in a thin matte black bullet. Though the packing is travel friendly, i would have preferred a thicker packing. The lipstick feels fragile as if it will uproot any moment.

Chambor Rouge Plump Lipstick 772 Review and Swatch

Hello folks!

I have been addicted to lipsticks for a long time. My experiments with lip colors started with the budget friendly brands and slowly shifted to MAC. These days I am in search for that perfect nude lipstick for my skin tone. I found that L’oreal Color Riche lipstick in the shade Nature’s Blush is a nude lipstick that I quite liked for my skin tone. Once it got used up, I wanted to try another brand. Chambor Rouge Plump lipstick 772 was an impulse purchase but I love this shade very much.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Brick-O-la - Review, Swatch and LOTD

I love Colorbar Velvet matte lipsticks. I love them for their price, staying power and decent shade selection. I have couple of lipsticks from them and today I am going to review the shade Brick-O-La.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Brick-O-la

It comes in a silver bullet with a transparent cap. The cap feels feeble though I have not faced any accidents. If you intend to carry it in your handbag, always keep it in a pouch. Better be safe than sorry right?

I got it from jabong for Rs. 275/- for 4.2 g.
