Chambor Dazzle Eyeliner

Hiya Folks :)
Wish you all a Merry Christmas, my day turned out to be an eventful one esp since I happened to meet my history school teacher and was extremely lucky to get her blessings, phir kya tha, mera Christmas toh Merry hona hi tha :D

So....kya karoon oh ladies mein hoon aadatse majboor! ;) couldnt stop ma self n felt the need to buy a nice kohl or liner in black for the festive season. I was planning to zero in on Chambor regular liner but then happened to spot this beauty. Chambor Dazzle Eyeliner, I was informed by the SA that this product is not marketed and sold by their company unless a customer specifically asks for it since it has side effects, it stings the eyes and makes 'em watery else makes the wearer drowsy :P I was almost on the verge of skipping this product but then I happened to swatch it n wow it was lovely, deep black colour n super smooth texture, I was instantly in love wid it but still I waned to make a wise choice n so decided to test it before I bought it........


...I applied the liner and went around the mall for 20 mins to see the reaction this black beauty had on me, esp since I  have very sensitive eyes and am a lens wearer. After the trial I found no fault wid the product and so bought it n trust me am loving it to bits. It's there in my purse at all times n you can see in da swatch it's a jet black colour, beautiful n sensual. I, personally will suggest you to test it before you splurge.....



The pics below have a single stroke applied on the waterline yet the colour has come out beautifully, don't you think??


Priced at INR 480/- is one of my best buys....the con besides the above stated reactions is that the packaging is not retractable :( so you gotta be very careful when you twist the pen to get the required amount of product.

Rest all good, lotsa more makeup and skincare product reviews coming your way, till then take good care of yourself n have a blast :D

Lodes of Love

Lakme Absolute Range, My pick

Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Fellas :D
A bigggggggg bear hug to all of ya, have missed you all so much n am sooooooo sorry for not being able to post for such a long time. won't rant bout why was away for so long , will straight away get to review bout a much talked bout ABSOLUTE range of beauty products by Lakme. ABSOLUTE is a high-performance long wear premium makeup range for women with a very busy lifestyle who have no time for touch-ups The product claims to last upto 16 hrs. Kareena Kapoor being their brand ambassador this particular range has been the talk of tinsel town

They've come up with wide array of products n I've picked 3 of 'em.

1.ABSOLUTE Matte Lipstick

2.ABSOLUTE Plump & Shine Lipgloss

3.ABSOLUTE Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush





1.ABSOLUTE Matte Lipstick: 207 Peach Carnation
 


This is a matte lipstick and is a peachy pink shade, more pink than peach. Enriched with vit E and wheat germ oil. Although it is a matte lipstick it dose not dry out da lips n has a nice creamy texture. You don't need a lip balm or gloss to club wid it at the onset but wid time it dose seem to dry out a bit.With winters and dry lips matte lippies are not da best buy. Nice colour but not a must have. Staying power is around 2-3hrs max on my lips so it dose not live upto the expectation of a long stay lippie that ABSOLUTE range claims to deliver.

                               
Prcied at INR 375/- I won't recommend you to go for it. 



2.ABSOLUTE Plump & Shine 6hr 3D gloss: Beige Shine 

This is lovely peachy pink colour with tiny shimmer particles. Not 'et all sticky and gives a lovely plumpy and kissable look to the lips. Since it's a very light shade will go well on all lippies as a top coat. Not to be used alone if you have pigmented lips but this is a gr8 addition to my stash n I absolutely love it. Staying power is not 6hrs as per the claim but yeah it dose stay put for a good 3hrs and that's quite a decent time when it comes to glosses. Glides on beautifully on da lips and dose not get runny after a while.

Priced at INR 375/- for 3ml. YES, do go for it, also will suggest you to try out it's counter parts.



3. ABSOLUTE Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush : Night Sparkle 

Highly pigmented pink blush with finely milled micro shimmer particles. Highlights the cheeks and imparts a nice and healthy glow to 'em. Is enriched with Jojoba oil and vit E. It can be applied dry for a flushed look or wet for more intense colour. Staying power 4-5hrs when applied dry before it fades gradually.

Priced at INR 550/- for 4gms, I find it worth the outlay. YES will recommend it if you love pink blushes with a bit of micro shimmer, also do check out 3 other colours in the same range.

                               


And fellas that's me with ABSOLUTE lippie, lipgloss and blush










What am I thinking.... :) just trying to make up ma mind to go for the classic hot chocolate n brownie at chocolate story or indulge into a chocolate roulade at dorabjee's ;D weekend hai bhai, kuch meetha ho hi jai :)

TC Amigos ..... have a fab eve.
Love Always
Priyanka :)

Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick,

Hey Friends,
Hope you all had a fab weekend :) after repeat warning from my conscience for over a fortnight to steer away from cosmetic counters and lippies were a strict no no, my control finally gave in when I saw this beauty at Central. This lovely is called Burnt Caramel, shade no. 745. It is one of the recent launches by Max Factor.






  • Packaging is very classy with a gold coloured bullet.
  • It claims to nourish, moisturize and make 'em smoother in just 7 days.



  • The bottom of this bullet is transparent so you can easily locate the colour
  • It has very creamy texture and gives a matt finish
  • After applying the lips feel very smooth n supple




    • Available in 17 shades and 8 liners is a visual treat
    • The only con that I see is the staying power, it stays for 1-2hrs and requires touch up after you eat or drink.
    • Priced at INR 670/-
    • Is a good buy but don't expect a lot from this product, it's not a must have.
    • Was it after seeing the model in da brochure or the after effect of this lippie I don't have a clue but was inspired to make make all sorts of faces and this is how it looks on me....heyyyyy fellas stop smiling ok :)

    Oh n the lovely sales lady gave me this free along wid this lippie, a lip gloss. After seeing this I was like, "oh nother useless gloss, a very natural colour, no pigmentation, what gud is dat ;(" but after applying it.....boy it's awesome, not 'et all sticky and glides beautifully on the lips.




    A nice slanted applicator wand. I personally loved it.

    This is how the lippie looks after being topped with gloss, nice na?? :)


    Ohhhh speaking bout smiling, I just can't stop coz of this....

    It's my all time fav Galaxy Chocolate in caramel flavour. This sinful delight is a milk chocolate, centre with oozing caramel....yummmmmm. It's very sweet but trust me once you take a bite it's sheer HEAVEN!!

    Priced at INR 20/- you just can't miss it. I always share all my edible stuff but this is one woweeeeeeeeee delight that I like to share with me, myself ONLY! :P so don't sit and watch, go get ur own bar....as for me....ummmm I just gotta go n indulge ;)

    Lotsa Love Always

    L'OREAL Youth Code Serum

    Hiya Fellas,
    So how was the much awaited Sunday :) mine turned out to be really gr8....hmmm so a quickie bout the much talked bout Youth Code range by L'OREAL. This range is especially formulated for guys n gals in the age category between 25-35 yrs and hence the name. This range is designed for fighting skin related problems that arise due to pollution, stress, acne etc that leave your skin dry, patchy, with open pores etc.

    Products in this range.......
    • Serum
    • Day Cream
    • Night Cream
    • Eye Cream
    • Anti-wrinkle concentrate ( Only for severely damaged skin )
    Today I'll be reviewing Youth Code Serum.

    • Packaging is nice and trendy, comes in a glass bottle with a dropper so easy to use n get required quantity, non messy.
    • Can be used for eyes too. Did not cause any allergies to my sensitive skin and eyes.

    • I've been using it for a fortnight and have seen positively visible difference in uneven skin-tone & pigmentation.
    • I use it in the night after cleansing and when I wake up I do experience a tightening feel on my skin, especially around the eyes.
    • Priced at INR 1275/- approx.
    • Quantity 30ml
    • The serum is not thick like olay, is a bit runny and gets quickly absorbed in the skin.
    • Has very mild fragrance but not a floral one, more like that of a mild deo.
    • It claims to have lasting effects even after you discontinue usage, I havent seen it live upto this claim so far.

    Will I recommend it, well yes to be used occasionally, I'd rather suggest you to use more natural remedies for skin tightening and brightening.
    Hope this review was helpful, chalo then will be off to get some sleep as have to kick start my day pretty early tomorrow but before I go need to tell you bout Chetan Bhagats new book Revolution 2020. It is an ok book, seems like a normal story till it takes a very filmi twist at the end.The story revolves around 3 friends, Gopal, Raghav and Aarthi and how an average human-being faces problem trying to get noticed and fit into this system called society & the dilemma to flow with the tide or fight against it.... I do find his books of interest but till date his "Two States" remains my favorite.

    Priced at INR 140/-

    Chalo then me off to bed, tc n gudnite!



    Lotsa Love
    Priyanka :)

    Bourjois Paris Volume Fast and Perfect Rotating Maskara


    Hiiiyaaaaaaaaaaaa Fellas! J

    Am soooooo happy to finally get time for what I love doing and that’s chatter away to my hearts content on my blog :D So b4 I bug you wid my bak bak, how have u all been doing,?? hope you all had a lovely week and will have and even better weekend ( we all do anyways :D he he! )

    Hmmmm so lotsa stuff to talk bout but today will give my quick review on…

    Bourjois Paris Volume Fast and Perfect Rotating Maskara Phewwwww, kafi lamba naam hai :P

    Ok so coming to my review......

    • Nice & sturdy packaging in classic black with red and silver lettering.



    • It looks like a thick white board marker.


    • Now comes the USP of this product, it is equipped with a twin rotating action, clockwise & anticlockwise, which helps to evenly spread out mascara on the upper and lower lashes and also makes it easier to give 'em a natural looking curl without the lash curler.


    • You can apply lotsa mascara and still get and even and finished look minus the clumps due to the rotating action the helps get rid of the excess.
    • Separates lashes yet adds volume.
    • Dries off quickly.

    • Priced at INR 825/- is well worth the outlay.
    • Did not cause me any discomfort since I have very sensitive eyes.


    • Is easy to remove with a good eye makeup remover.
    • Batteries are suppose to last till the mascara lasts but at this moment have no way of finding that out since this will last me for quite a while.
    Yes! Personally will recommend you to buy it and will be doing the same once this baby dries out/ finishes.

    • The only con is you will need a bit of practice to apply this with ease due to the rotating action and even if you can't you still can apply it like a regular mascara.

    Yawwwwwwwwnnnnn!!!! Okkkkk folks thatz my cue to go and crash on my bed that look really really inviting, so am off, you guys n gals take care, sleep tight and I'll see you tomorrow, For Sure ;)

    Gudnite!

    Lotsa Love
    Priyanka :D

    Ponds Active Moisture 24Hr Moisturizer

    Hiya Fellas,
    Hope you all had a fab weekend. Me too njoying as always. A quickie bout Ponds Active Moisture 24Hr Moisturizer .

    • Comes with active moisture lock technology.
    • It claims to hydrate skin and thereby make it radiate with health and glowing vitality.
    • Very likable and mildly perfumed.
    • It specially to be used in winter when skin feels dry.
    • Priced at INR 120/-
    And now my verdict, it's just like any other regular cream. DOSE NOT give 24hr moisture, in next15mins my skin feels dry again. Absorbs quickly in the skin but dose not make it feel hydrated. I have a oily and sensitive skin so even a little moisture should do but this dose not make my skin feel hydrated. I will not recommend it, especially to those who have dry skin.

    No a bad product but then it dose not live upto it's claim either.Take Care, adios!!

    Lotsa Love
    Priyanka :)

    Dove Face Washes

    Hey All,
    Hope you all are having a fab weekend. Today will be reviewing two lovely face washes by Dove.


    Go Fresh

    • It contains orange oil & skin care essence ( wonder what that means :P )....oh gotcha, skin care essence in Dove brands terminology means the process that balances skins moisture and oiliness.
    • It is specially formulated for oily skin.
    • Has a very mild orangey fragrance
    • Dose not dry out skin after wash and leaves me feeling fresh.


    Beauty Moisture


    • Contains 1/4 moisture milk and thus leaves you feeling hydrated after wash.
    • Specially formulated for Normal to Dry skin but with onset of winters it suits my oily skin too.
    • A very mild soapy fragrance, like Dove soap.

    DOVE: Go Fresh & Beauty Moisture Face Washes


    • I personally loved the packaging, fresh colours and come in squeeze tubes that have a very secure lid so easy to carry around in your purse.
    • Quantity: 100g
    • Price INR 125/-
    • Definitely not extraordinary products but you wont regret buying 'em either, atleast I don't.
    Chalo then me off to bed...yawwwwwwwwwwnnnnn phewww really sleepy, you fellas take care and have a Gr8 sunday :) Gudnite.

    Lotsa Love

    My MAC :) Experience With The Brand

    Hiya Beauties,
    Today will be reviewing the brand and it's products that I just can't do without. They are.....
    • MAC Prolong concealer in NW 35
    • MAC Prolong Foundation in NC 40
    • MAC Studio Fix Powder ib NC 42

    MAC Pro longwear Foundation, with SPF 10.

    Staying power is true to it's name, around 8-10hrs wid ease but one needs to moisturize the face b4 applying, even a gal like me who has a super oily skin. Even if I splash water on my face and dab it away it stays put.

    Priced At INR 1,700/- is in a way is expensive but a tiny blob is enough for my whole face and so goes a long way so the price is justified as long as I'm concerned. I just wet my fingers bf applying and blend it with few drops of water and then apply it with a brush or finger tips.

    It evens out skin tone beautifully and looks like a second skin. In all the pictures that I click in my blog I've used this product and this is the perfect foundation for me.



    MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, NW 35

    My work and my lifestyle involves a lot of driving and working on computers, besides which I also have a bad habit of reading anything and everything that I come across which puts a lot of strain on my eyes. My sleep timing are weird too and I sleep for 5hrs max, so you can guess how much I exploit my eyes and the result being dark circles and tired eyes. I use to have a problem applying kohl coz of dark circles coz then I'd have racoon eyes :P .

    After hunting for many concealers from big brands like Revlon, Elizabeth Arden, Diana of London, Chambor, Max Factor, Bourjois, Avon, Maybelline....phewww but no matter how gud they would either wash away due to my oily skin and those that stayed would settle into fine lines thereby making 'em visible, finally I came across MAC and hit the jackpot, the moment I used it I knew this was it, my hunt was over. It's been an inseparable part of me ever since.
    I apply it the same way as my foundation.
    Price INR 1,000/-


    MAC Studio Fix Power Foundation

    Now this is an absolute beauty and gem of a product. It gives coverage along with soaking up the oily shine from my face. One can pair it up with a foundation or else if you love very minimal makeup then wear it alone. It evens out skin tone beautifully and I personally feel every gal who loves makeup has to have one of this in her purse, at all times.

    It's not a very long staying product since it's in powder form but despite that I would strongly advocate it. I would recommend it especially to those who wanna look good but don't have too much time to spare, a quick swipe with your brush, a dash of gloss, mascara and u're good to go.

    After a hectic day that plans to end wid friends I do a quick touch up with this and it instantly makes me look fresh and radiant, top it with a nice bronzer and walla! Am ready :)

    Price INR 1,600/-

    Me without any makeup 'et all and with my most prized treasure trove :D

    All the 3 products listed above are an integral part of my makeup routine, I've never experienced any breakouts, allergies or any other skin problems after using 'em. I would request all the readers to 1st take samples from the SA, try 'em out 3-4 times, indifferent environment, lighting and time of the day and if you're satisfied only then go ahead with the buy, esp since they are a bit pricey.

    Also plz plz plz check for a correct match, a lighter foundation dose not mean u'll look fair, it will just make you look white and highlight all the small imperfections on your face. Have patience and you, yourself be the judge of what really matches your skin tone and skin.

    These products have worked for me, it's for you to find out if they work for you too, I really hope they do :)

    Lotsa Love
    Priyanka :)
