All 3 Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blushes! Review + Swatch!

IMG_2028-001

Hello My Lovelies!

Something awful, awful happened today… I lost my earphones! Yeah, I know! The foreseeable earphone-less tomorrow seems dim, dark and mute!

Anyway, enough with my melodrama!

The thing that I did want to talk to you guys about is my love affair with the Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blushes!

IMG_2032-001

Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blushes retail for about Rs. 250 each, which is pretty affordable cost for these awesome blushes!

IMG_2040-001

I own all 3 of the Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blushes not because I am a hoarder but because I was genuinely intrigued by them and decided to give them each a whirl!

1. Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush ~ Peachie Sweetie

IMG_2114-002

This was the blush that started it all! I was in Shoppers Stop just browsing through the Maybelline counter when I came across this blush, swatched it on my arm and instantly decided to buy it!

This is my most used, most loved Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush! It looks so beautiful on! This blush gives my cheeks a really nice peach-y glow!

This is a really great everyday blush and whenever I apply this blush, I get a guaranteed, ” Yaar, achi lag rhi hai ” (You look nice) remark!

My Rating ~ 4/5 !

2. Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush ~ Fresh Coral

IMG_2115-002

Fresh Coral was my next Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush purchase. I really like this blush (though not as much as ‘Peachie Sweetie’) this blush gives me a real rose-y cheek look.

But be warned this blush is really pigmented and a little goes a long way! Too much of this and you’d be sporting “clown cheeks” no pun intended!

My Rating ~ 3.5/5 !

3. Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush ~ Creamy Cinnamon

IMG_2116-002

Creamy Cinnamon is my second most used and most loved blush after ‘Peachie Sweetie’.

Don’t let the brown color in the pan fool you, Creamy Cinnamon is a very warm, kinda burnt pink (is that a thing?) color which really warms my complexion and gives it a nice glow!

My Rating ~ 4/5!

SWATCHES!

Nykaa.com Haul!

Hello My Lovelies!

I’m back! Sorry for being M.I.A! My health took a tumble a couple months back and when I did get better… law school and life as I knew it occupied most of my time.

Anyhoo, I am back! Yay!

So, a couple weeks back I hauled a couple of products from Nykaa.com !

Below I clicked a couple of picks to show you guys a quick look of what I got 🙂

Rave Review! Lakme Shine Line Eyeliner~Black!

IMG_1758

Hello My Lovelies!

I had my Property Law exam today and if that wasn’t bad enough it was super hot today like I kept envisioning myself as a snow-woman who was literally M-E-L-T-I-N-G! Then the rain came in the evening and it was nice and stuff but all I could think was, ” You Sneaky Bit*h, where were you when I was M-E-L-T-I-N-G this afternoon?!”

*Takes Deep Breath* O-kay! Ranting done! On to the review! 😀

IMG_1755

Lakme Absolute Shine Line Eyeliner~Black…I love this eyeliner! This is perhaps my most used, most loved, most repurchased (This is my 6th repurchase) black liquid eyeliner!

IMG_1763

PACKAGING

The packaging is REALLY sturdy and chic! It comes in a black cylindrical bottle with a silver metallic cap. I have never had any issues with spills with this liner. This has 4.5 ml of product in it.

IMG_1760

CONSISTENCY

The consistency is really neither runny nor thick, it REALLY glides on your eyelids in one slick!

IMG_1766

PIGMENTATION & FINISH

The liner is quite pigmented, although its not the blackest of black out there (i’d say its kinda a really, really dark grey-black) but it looks soooo fabulous on!

IMG_1767

Aah the finish… Okay I think some sick d-bag played a poor joke on this guy by giving it a name like ” Lake Absolute SHINE Line”, ’cause there is ABSO-F-ing-Lutely NO shine in this eyeliner. Nil, nada, zilch! When It dries, which by the way is Suuuuuuuper Fast (10 seconds, fast! yeah, you heard me), it dries to a MATTE FINISH!

I can just imagine this poor guy sitting on the counter with all the other Lakme products and the Lakme Absolute Foundation calling him, “Yo! Shine Line! What Up Bro?”

And this poor guy hiding his irritation, but failing miserably, responding,” Yo! Help a brother out! It’s MATTE LINE bit*ch.” Ha!

IMG_1790

STAYING POWER

I am literally amazed by its staying power! It stays on my eyelids comfortably for 6+ hours! After that it cracks a bit. But it is really, really easy to remove. You can get it out with any face wash, makeup remover with little to no effort!

FINALLY…. The Best Thing About It!

It’s the Brush! Seriously It’s THE BEST brush ever! It gives me the thinnest of thin lines when I want in a single swipe! And when I want a thicker look I can just load up the brush a little with the product and it delivers!

IMG_2270

Price~Last I remember the price was Rs.290 ($4.9 approx.),but for some reason when I checked today almost all of the online stores were selling this for Rs.300 ($5) 

My Rating~4/5

Would I repurchase? I always do! Currently repurchased it for the 6th time!

FOTD~Smokey Eyes with Sleek “Oh So Special” Eyeshadow Palette + Red Lips with Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick~Mat 5

IMG_2086

Hello My Lovelies!

Whoever said you can’t rock a bold lip with a smokey eye is bonkers! If done tastefully a smokey eye paired with a bold lip is soooo seductive!

Read on to find out how to rock a smokey eye with a bold lip!

IMG_2089 IMG_2091 IMG_2079 IMG_2080

The Key to rock this look is to choose a bold lippy which is a bit sheer and the color can be built up with each coat i.e. why I found Maybelline Bold Matte~Mat 5 lipstick to be perfect for this job!

IMG_2094 IMG_2097 IMG_2101

For this look I used :-

IMG_2118

On my Face

1. Benefit Porefessional

2. MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation

On my Eyes

1. Eyeshadow Primer (Not Pictured)

2. From my Sleek~Oh So Special eye shadow palette I used “The Mail” (bottom row, third shade from the left) all over my eyelid, then I used “Gift Basket” (top row, fourth shade from the left) and applied it over the “The Mail” eye shadow, all over my lid.

Next, I used “Boxed” (bottom row, fourth shade from the left) on my crease and blended it out with a blending brush to avoid harsh lines, I also applied “Boxed” underneath my lower lash line.

3. Eyeconic Kajal~Brown (on the waterline)

4. Lakme Shine Line Eyeliner~Black (to line my upper lash line)

5. Maybelline Falsies Mascara

On my Lips

Finally I finished the look by applying to coats of Maybelline Bold Matte~Mat 5 lipstick and blotting my lips with a tissue.

Maybelline Bold Matte lipsticks retail for INR 375 ($6.3 approx.)

New Purchase! MAC & Sephora!

IMG_1395-001

Hello My Lovelies!

This post has been in my drafts folder for a couple of weeks! So, thought I’d post it today!

I had been on the look out for a good M.A.C. foundation and I found it on my visit to the Mac store at Promenade Mall, Vasant Kunj, Delhi!

IMG_1399-001

IMG_1410-001

I got the Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in the shade NC 35, The foundation costed INR 1990 i.e. approx. $34 plus I bought a pump nozzle for the foundation because that is not available with the foundation, you need to purchase that separately because a pump nozzle really, really extends the life of the foundation and it squirts out little but adequate amount of product every time you squirt it. The pump nozzle costed an additional INR 500 i.e. $8.5 

IMG_1414-001Then I made a stop at Sephora to pick up some sponges with which I could apply my foundation, I got 2 washable sponges that costed in total INR 330 i.e. approx. $5.6
IMG_1413-001

I quite liked using this foundation with the sponges for like a week or so, but washing the sponges clean of any foundation residue after each use became a pain!

So, I chucked them and instead got the Sephora Mineral Powder Brush (review to come soon!) which applies the MAC foundation like a dream!

Well that’s it for now!

FOTD~Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish Glam 13!

IMG_1998

Hello My Lovelies!

FOTD time! I have a confession to make… I have never really been a “lip gloss person”!  There! I said it! Normally I would even consider applying a lip gloss is if it is in a Big, Bold, Bright shade! I am a bold lip girl through and through!

So, I don’t know what in the damn hell possessed me to buy a nude-slightly pink-y MLBB (My Lips But Better) lip gloss! But buy I did, Maybelline’s ColorSensational Lip Polish in Glam 13! And boy am I glad I bought it!

Read on to find out what I think about it…

IMG_2007

IMG_1997 IMG_1929 IMG_1985 IMG_2009

For this look I used…

IMG_2109

On my Face…

1. MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation

2. Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in Peachie Sweetie

On my Eyes…

1. Maybelline Colossal Kajal

2. Lakme Absolute Shine Line Eyeliner

3. Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara (Washable)

Finally! On my Lips…

IMG_2112

I applied Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish in GLAM 13 on my lips! Oh My God! I love this gloss! It has seriously converted me and I’m on my way to becoming a ” Kinda gloss loving person”! I love that person!

This gloss is flattering on everyone! Seriously! My friend got one and it looks FAB on her, hell it even looks FAB on my mother!

IMG_2111

This gloss looks nude-y pink-y on me it looks pink-ish on my friend and kinda pink-y brown-y on my mom but they all look great! Seriously, the colour in the tube is VERY misleading, the colour looks really unappealing (at least to me) in the tube but on the lips! OH MY GAAAWD! (cue Janice from FRIENDS) This gloss is the STUFF!

I mean it has decent wear time and the best thing I can gorge, murder, massacre, monster eat my food and this WOULD NOT BUDGE! That NEVER happens! I went out wearing this gloss for a Belated Mothers’ Day Dinner with my mom and we had Chinese and I ate like a starving infant, still this gloss did NOT budge! Next, I wore this when I went out for lunch with my boyfriend and we had a big lunch, yet again this gloss did NOT budge,smudge or had food on it, no sir, not at all!

So, from the above incidents we can deduce that (a) I eat like a pig! and (b) This lip polish is awesome! The Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish (Glam 13) retails for Rs.450 but sooooooo worth it! Buy it HERE !

Lastly, some puppy/dog love! What can I say? My Boy really loves the limelight! 😀
