Whenever brands claim things like long-lasting, 24 hour staying power and such I always take it with a grain of salt due to the many years of unmet expectations and OTT claims that hold no good but this time Maybelline surprised me with the Superstay 24 Hour 2 Step Lipstick. I was able to try the shade 115 Forever Chestnut.
After sitting on it for ages I am finally publishing one of the most requested reviews of The Natural Moisturizing Factors+ HA (which stands for Hyaluronic Acid, listed as sodium hyaluronate on the ingredient list) by The Ordinary. The brand calls it their “Surface Hydration Formula”
You guys know how invested I am in skincare and something that I especially appreciate is finding new brands that make hi-tech skincare products. So I was pretty thrilled to discover Loveisderma- A Taiwan based brand engaged in aesthetic medicine, skin care products and pharmaceutical care. A unique product that first caught my eye was the B5 Hydraboost Gelly Masque. It’s a giant tub of transparent gel that invited me to dive in!
The kind folks at Glamrada sent me a bunch of products to try from a new Indie Brand – Satliva. I am a great supporter of home-grown independent brands so I was happy to learn about Satliva and try out some of their offerings. I was in the market to get a new moisturizer so I was thrilled to try the Red Raspberry Face Cream.
Chubby Sticks are so popular lately, literally every colour cosmetic can be found in a chubby stick format. There is something so satisfying about holding a fat crayon and going to town; I guess it brings out the child in us. Lakme was on trend when they launched these Lip Pout Crayons and I was able to try the shade Mauve Hue.
The kind folks at Glamrada sent me a bunch of products to try from a new Indie Brand – Satliva. I am a great supporter of home-grown independent brands so I was happy to learn about Satliva and try out some of their offerings. One of the first thing that caught my interest was the soap bar mostly because of its beautiful packaging!
I am a huge fan of the Micellar Water concept (read- This girl be lazy!) and more so of the brand Bioderma. Its a French Pharmacy Brand so just that fact might have swayed me a little, because the French know their Beauty products! One of the first posts I wrote on this blog, two years ago was a review for the Sensibio H2O and in the years that have passed have seen me try various makeup removing products and nothing ever came close to Bioderma. So after finishing numerous bottles of the Sensibio H2O I was glad to try the Hydrabio H2O variant.
Recently I was approached by Glamrada to ask if I would like to try out some products in exchange of a review and before agreeing I asked them if things go south with the product would they be OK if I write a negative review? Surprisingly the associate who was speaking with me over the phone said that would be completely fine without a moment’s hesitation. Most often in this barter kind of arrangements folks are interested only in positive reviews but kudos to Glamrada for striving to be an honest Review Aggregator.
Sometime back some of my friends introduced me to the Lodhradhi Face Pack and thought I was living under a rock for not already knowing about it! The folks at Royal Indulgence were kind enough to send me the Amaira Hair Oil along with the face pack for a review and must appreciate them for their generosity & super fast shipping.
A few months back I won a bunch of NYX products in a giveaway held by Tshering Yangzom of Titi’s Corner. This 3 IN 1 brow pencil was something that I was most excited about. Brow products have taken over the market by storm. Initially popularized by Anastasia Beverly Hills in 2013 and there has been no looking back since then. Each & every brand offers brow makeup in their portfolio these days. Rightfully so because well done brows are never out of fashion.
