BABY WIPES IN MAKE UP REMOVAL - REVIEW - MAMY POKO BABY WIPES :D

Hi Girls!

Today i am going to review my new found love.....!! Baby Wipes!! :D. I know most of you use them but i was living under rock for a while and i never knew that baby wipes can used for make up removal! Some how i read some where that baby wipes are very gentle yet effective in removing make up so i went ahead and gave it a try!

Actually the reason baby wipes are safe for the obvious reasons that they are meant for cute little babies so they would not contain alcohol contents. These are a boon for lazy bums like me, as i get so tired at the end of day and sometimes feel so painful to take some 5-10 mins to remove the make up and clean my face. They are very gentle on the skin and yet so effective in removing dirt on the skin and make up too. However, for stubborn water proof make up you would have to use an additional make up remover.

I bought Mamy Poko Baby wipes smaller pack as it is my first encounter with baby wipes and not sure how it would work! :)
 

 

Price: Rs.59/- for a pack of 20 wipes

REVIEW - Revlon Custom Eyes Shadow & Liner - Naturally Glamorous 020

Hi Girls!!

I am a huge fan of eye shadows and gold, copper & bronze shades never fail to impress. Today i am going to review one of my all time favorite eye shadow palette Revlon Custom Eyes Shadow & Liner - Naturally Glamorous 020.


What the Company Claims:
  • Easily create and customize the eye look you want with 4 shadows and 1 liner. For dramatic eye popping looks like never before!
  • The dual ended applicator helps you to easily create the eye looks you want. Use the wider side to cover the eye area in shadow and the pointed end to apply the liner shade.



Price: Rs.695/-  (For 5 shades )




My views on Revlon Custom Eyes Shadow & Liner:

This was actually one impulsive purchase and i came back home and wondered if i did a mistake by splurging 695 bucks on this, but when i used this i was happy with the purchase.

The packaging is sturdy and nice. It comes in a side open plastic lid type. The applicator for a change is NOT useless, and does a good job! I wish there was some mirror included so that it would be great while traveling.

The palette has Five shades Bronze, Copper, Gold, Black and a Highlighter shade. All the shades have a slight/fine shimmer with a  satiny finish(without looking OTT) and i love that! All the shades have decent pigmentation except the black one which goes sheer on application. However, the pigmentation comes out really nice with a primer beneath.

The staying power without the primer is around 3-4 Hours and with a primer it lasted upto 6-8 Hours.

The texture of the eye shadows is super soft and blends really well.

The only confusion i found is the whole "Liner" part, i did not find the AMAZING pigmentation to use them as a stand alone liner.


 
This is how the applicator looks like.

Overall i love this palette for the gorgeous shades and totally recommend it!! :)

NOTD : LAKME COLOR CRUSH TRUE WEAR NAIL PAINT - SHADE 02

My Views on LAKME COLOR CRUSH TRUE WEAR NAIL PAINT:

Well i am official nail polish hoarder and i just randomly pick them in all colors :). I am in love with this color. Its a bright blue color which looks great especially for dull day :). They have amazing shades in this range that are matte and shimmery.

The brush applicator is good and ensures even coverage without being streaky. Its takes 2-3 coats to completely go opaque. It takes a while to dry.(2-4 mins). The staying power is good. Without a top coat it lasted without chipping for a week (with the color slightly faded out) which is really good for me.

Review : Coloressence Blusher - Amber Peach

Hey Girls!!

Today's review is on the Coloressence Blusher in the shade Amber Peach.


What the Product Claims:

Coloressence Blusher with satin smooth silky effect. It gives velvety cheeks to highlight the cheekbones.


Price: Rs.220 for 5g (Available at lesser price on Online Shopping sites)


My Experience with Coloressence Blusher - Amber Peach:

First of all, the blush is very pocket friendy. :) I got it for Rs.180/- on an online shopping site and i was so glad. I always refrain from applying blushes on my cheeks as i have a dusky complexion and i am really not sure what colors really show up on me. So i always look out for inexpensive blushes for trial and error purpose!

Firstly i am not a great fan of the packaging. It has a screw cap-type packaging but its sturdy. I cannot complain for the price i paid. The shade Amper peach, true to its name, is a nice peachy shade that looks very subtle.It is a matte shade hence very appropriate for day time. I assume this suits well on fair to medium skin tones. On my dusky tone it does not show up that well, just a hint of color on my cheeks and honestly i like it. :)

The texture of the blush is smooth, not chalky at and blends nicely into the skin.

The staying power is not that impressive, it just stays on for 3 hours max and then it fades away!

Rating: 3.5/5

Overall a nice budget friendly blush and i recommend it!
