To be absolutely honest Mascaras confuse me! There is a ginormous number of options available these days each holding a promise to give one the lashes of their dreams. There are the high-end cult favorites and the ones that have been around historically. I am generally tempted to play around within that safe zone but this time I wanted to try out something new – something drugstore – something that promises to make my lashes look “fan”tastic so after some research (because well, Ms.P cannot NOT research!) I settled on the waterproof variant of Maybelline Lash Sensational.
As I mentioned in some of my previous posts I am always on the look out for affordable alternatives of the high-end products and another such attempt was made here. In theory the Fit ME range by Maybelline makes great sense but as usual India Market did not get the full shade-range, which was quite disappointing. Out of the one’s available I was able to try the Shade 330 Toffee Caramel.
This one is from Maybellines’s permanent range named Colour Sensational Moisture Extreme. I was on the look out for a Bright Pink shade to match my Fuchsia Saree. When I came across this shade called Coral Pink (CB41) in the Yellow bright light at the mall; I thought this was it! But of course like many lipsticks it wears differently in daylight.
I am a big fan of L.A. Girl’s BB Cream. So far I have re-purchased it thrice and the review post of the BB cream has been read over 6000+ times since I published it in September 2016; so clearly a lot of you are interested in the brand as well. I recently had the opportunity to try out the pressed powder from L.A. Girl in shade GPP608- Soft Honey. With the benchmark the brand had set with the BB cream my expectations for this powder were very high.
I have been wanting to try a transparent mascara since ages; in hopes for getting those naturally fluttery lashes that look fab without looking made up with tonne of black mascara. Well a girl can hope, right? So when I saw this MegaClear Transparent Mascara by Wet n Wild I had to check it out!
I have always been a fan of Inglot’s brand language and of course great quality of products to go with that “sleek & to the point” brand image. During the time I lived in Bangalore I hoarded a tonne of lipsticks from Inglot because they had many physical stores there and I really do like the old school way of swatching and making a purchase decision based on how I perceive the product in reality rather than seeing it on the computer or phone screen. During this phase I was all about the pinks and one fitting the bill was this beautiful No. 145.
I had heard tonnes about Wet n Wild’s affordable range of products from the international beauty community and was pretty thrilled when Nykaa.com officially made it available in India. I saw a YouTube video by Tshering of Titi’s Corner swatching the Magalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks and fell in love with Rebel Rose a beautiful dusty pink colour.
When Makeup Revolution officially launched in India around a year ago, I was eager to checkout their offerings since they are known for their affordable prices and shades that are dupes for many high-end colour cosmetic brands. I was in the market for a Nude Lipstick (let’s be real, when am I not! LOL) so I went for the shade Treat from their Amazing Lipstick Range.
