Since forever I have been trying to find a lip balm that works for me. I am one those miserable people who have chapped lips all year round and have tried lip balms from various brands and many-many home remedies. So far the only product that has some effect is an over-night slathering of the transparent Baby Lips from Maybelline. Now that I am consciously trying to transition towards natural and organic products, this time I decided to give Organic Harvest a shot.
MAC’s Extra Dimension Skin finishes are some of the best highlighters around. Shaft of Gold was a part of MAC’s Magic of the Night 2015 holiday collection. I am not sure if its still available but if you like the colour a good dupe is Bae Area by Colourpop. MAC describes it as a “deep bronze.” It’s a medium, orange-brown with warm undertones and a gold shimmer finish. Looks great on deeper Indian Skin Tones. It also makes for a nice day time eye-shadow.
Sometime ago I won a giveaway held by NYX Cosmetics in collaboration with Youtuber- Tshering Yangzom. Yeyy! I won a bunch of NYX products and one among them was this Highlighter/ Illuminator in shade Magnetic. NYX describes this shade as Peachy Pink with Gold Sheen and glitter.
Maybelline keeps reinventing its very popular and much-loved “Baby Lips” franchise with new packaging/ colour/ formula etc. at a pace that no one can keep up! Also goes out to show the present beauty-consumer’s insatiable appetite for the “New & Improved”! Admittedly I am also one of those consumer’s so I checked out the Grape Fruit variety of the Baby Lips Candy Wow.
This product has a mousse consistency and goes on the lips smooth and sets matte. It is quite pigmented and if one intends to use it on their cheeks; little will go a long way. The shade Burgundy Lush is great Red that will suit the Indian Skin Tone.
Paint Pot Eye Shadow’s from MAC’s Pro Long wear range are known to go-on creamy and give an intense finish. Indianwood is a metallic antique bronze colour.
I bought a bunch of stuff from The Ordinary and I absolutely had to have the much talked about Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% which is claimed to be a High-Strength Vitamin and Mineral Blemish Formula.
You’ve gotta check out the stuff this promises to do! It’s almost marketed like black-magic in a jar, to go with that- an equally hefty price to support that ridiculous claim! Since I was absolutely certain that time travelling to the past & regaining my glorious younger skin is impossible, whatever EL’s marketing may claim; I did not buy this on my own accord! I tried this product only because I received this as a sample when I purchased the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum.
We go to great lengths to get rid of blackheads. Most effective methods are often painful so when a brand creates something that offers blackhead removal minus the pain it totally deserves a chance. Ms. Super Consumer introduced me to the Innisfree – Jeju Volcanic 3 in 1 Nose Pack and when a product has “3 in 1” in its name I am more than just happy to test drive it.
