NYX matte lip cream review and swatches

Looks like lip-gloss but isn’t a lip-gloss ; works like lipstick but isn’t a lipstick. That one swipe is enough to set my mood alright. This lipstick invention called as lip cream is totally trending these days and has become a makeup staple for me.  So, today I’ll be reviewing three of my favorite matte lip creams from NYX– Addis Ababa, San Paulo and Amsterdam.

Addis Ababa

Addis Ababa is a nice fuchsia pink which instantly uplifts my mood.This bright pink shade is perfect for Indian skin tones.

San Paulo

This coral pink shade is an amazing warm color and suits well for wheatish skin tone. This one is my personal favorite shade which I prefer to wear daily.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a bright red shade which has a hint of orange.This bright shade is perfect for almost all skin tones as it will instantly brighten your face.

 Pros:

  • The texture is creamy and super matte.
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Good staying power. It stays well on lips for 5 hours.
  • Fairly priced for 6$ and that’s a total worth.
  • Smells like divine.

Cons:

  • The love for matte is endless but no wonder they tend to dry your lips. Make sure you apply a lip balm before you use these lip cream.
  • Not transfer proof so you would find those lip stains on your cup while sipping your favorite beverage.

 

Overall rating:

I would rate them 4.5/5 as I feel that it’s totally worth to have them

Andaaz-e-ethnic!!!

I love kurtis and I can totally rely on them because for me they are the most comfortable piece to wear. Owning that perfect kurti is a blissful thing for me because they give those perfect desi vibes which I totally adore. What’s better than a kurti which can make you look modern and traditional at the same time. And which is why I prefer these long slit kurti designed especially for flaunting Desi andaaz with a modern hint.

We always pair kurti with leggings but this time I thought to ditch the usual tradition by pairing it with denim. Pair your kurti with a nice statement earing and let your earrings do the talking. And this statement earing known as Chandbali is a perfect one to pair with. I love how this Chandbali adds an instant glam to this entire outfit.

I am pairing this kurti with a perfect pair of beige colored slip-ons which has cute tassels over it. Lastly, don’t miss to wear a perfect red lipstick to make your lips look gorgeous and pout ready.

I hope you liked my Ethnic andaaz. Do let me know your thoughts about this ethnic look in the comment section below. See you until next time. Keep smiling and stay happy!!

Swap the Fashion Staple!!!

 

Hello lovely people there!!! I hope y’all are having an amazing weekend. I’m back with a new post which is all about trying a fashion staple in an unconventional way. It’s good to set a norm for an outfit but over a time it would look boring and less stylish. That’s the right time to jazz your outfit by swapping fashion staple.

T-shirt is one such fashion staple that we always think to pair it with denim. But this time, I thought to break my t-shirt norm by layering it with a dress. I am pairing my blue striped t-shirt with this beautiful off-white slip-on dress. I love how this dress is easy-breezy and super comfy.

A perfect pair of loafers is a must with this outfit and what’s better than a striped loafers to pair with. My obsession with choker style accessories is endless and I love how this simple off-white choker perfectly accessorizes my outfit.

Paint your nails blue to give that extra glam to this outfit. And this nail color from Maybelline COLOR SHOW in the shade “Blazing Blue” is a perfect one to wear. Lastly, opt for a sleek high ponytail and girl you are good to go.

I hope you guys liked the entire look . Do let me know your thoughts about this look in the comment section below. Keep smiling and see you until next time!!!

Maharashtrian vibes!!!

Hey guys!! I am finally back with my new post. I know it’s been a quite long period that I didn’t post any new content on my blog. Sorry, for being disconnected with you for such a long time.

I have an endless love for Maharashtrian look and I am totally obsessed with this look. So this time, I thought to create a simple Maharashtrian look for you. In this post, I am wearing a traditional green border sari paired with mustard colored floral blouse.

When it comes to accessories, I love being minimalist as I believe “the lesser the better”. I believe Pearl jewelry are the best one’s to pair with when it comes to traditional outfit. So, I am styling this sari with a choker style pearl neck-piece and cute little pearl jhumkas. These have been my favorite pieces till now as I love how these statement pieces are embellished with bead shaped pearls and they just look perfect with this sari.

Trust me; I was never a fan of nose pin till I found this beautiful Maharashtrian nose pin which is called as nath. I totally adore this nose pin as it has the most unique design than any other nose ornament. For me, this nath is the most highlighting part of the look. And lastly a half moon shaped bindi which completes the entire look. I love how this deep red lipstick from Color bar’s ULTIMATE 8 HRS STAY LIPSTICK range in the shade “WILD CARD”looks amazing on my lips.

So this was my go-to Maharashtrian look. I hope you guys liked the look. Let me know your thoughts about this look in the comments section below. Till then be happy and see you until next time!!

First Fashion Experiment!!!

I was quite hesitant when I had to experiment with fashion as it used to throw loads of question in my mind like how would I look? Would the experiment work? Would people appreciate? And so on. Lately, I realized that these questions are worthless to think upon and they really don’t matter. What matters is the confidence that you are wearing along with your outfit which will make you feel good about yourself and trust me that will make you rock any outfit. I stress the word again- CONFIDENCE.

Experimenting can be fun as you step a foot forward to do something different from regular styling. However, you need to be a little careful as no fashion experiment comes without style risk. This post is about my first fashion experiment which is a blend of Indo-western look.

In this post, I am wearing a spaghetti strap pastel green anarkali paired with denim shirt. I love how this denim shirt adds a hint of western element to this traditional piece. I am wearing a choker neck piece and a chunk of oxidized bangles which keeps my outfit traditional at the same time. Also, I am wearing my favorite lipstick from L’Oréal Paris in the shade “Maple Mocha” which is perfect for Indian skin tone. And lastly a perfect pair of stilettos to complete this entire look.

So, this was my style experiment. I hope you liked my look. Share your thoughts about this look in the comments sections below. Till then stay happy and keep experimenting.

Instant Glow Peel-off mask feat. Everyuth

AirBrush_20170818170830
My life is quite fast paced. My busy schedule doesn’t allow me to opt regular skincare routine. I hate spending hours and hours in salon pampering my skin to get that even tone on face. Phew!! How difficult it is to get that natural glow on your skin. However that was the case till I found Everyuth’s Golden glow peel-off in my life.
The skin transformation was surreal for me with it’s first application . And this peel-off has been a total savior for me during those occasions when my face required an instant glow.

Application: 

  • Make sure  you tie your hairs back so that it doesn’t ruin your mask and hair both when it’s wet.
  • The application is super easy. Take a generous amount of peel-off on your palms and start applying it on your face in the downward directions.
  • Apply a thick layer of mask so that once it gets dry it will be easier for you to peel it off.
  • Now wait for 15 minutes till the mask dries and then peel it off from the downward direction as this can help you to remove facial hairs to some extent.

Pros:

  • Contains orange peel extract that helps  removing dead skin cells.
  • Inexpensive.
  • Can easily fit into your makeup bag so that you can prep your skin with this mask anywhere you want to.
  • It has runny texture that allows the mask to spread evenly on the face.
  • Suitable for almost all skin types.
  • Contains collagenine boosters which stimulates the production of collagen that helps to reduce the dullness of the skin.

Cons:

  • The only fact that I dislike this product is that it contains parabens.

Ratings:

I would rate this product 4/5 and would love to repurchase it as it’s instant glow feature is essential for me during those days when I am running out of time.
