Sugar It’s A-Pout Time Vivid lipstick in shade 'Peachy Little Liars' and '70’s Red' Review, Swatches, Price


Hi Lovely Ladies!



Hope you all are doing very well. I haven’t posted any lipstick swatches or reviews on lipsticks for long, so thought of doing that today. J I got two new lipsticks from Sugar Cosmetics which they have recently launched in shades ‘Peachy Little Liars’ and ‘70’s Red’. The first one is a much raved shade on which girls are literally going crazy with, though my personal favorite is ‘70’s Red’ which is capable enough to brighten up you face anytime. J

Now let’s start with the review.

What the product says:


Creamy and moisturising, SUGAR It's A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick combines the look of a classic matte lip with the benefit of incredible comfort. Enriched with micronized pigments and silica micro-beads, this matte lipstick glides on easily and settles to a gorgeous matte finish. FDA approved, this lipstick is free of mineral oil and parabens. Vivid Lipstick has a creamy consistency that moisturises and spreads evenly on the lips.


Price: 

599(INR)

Availability:

You can get it from here Click Here

Pigmentation:


It is intensely pigmented, within two or three swipes you will get a full coverage with opaque finish.

Wear Time:

It can easily stay up to 5 to 6 hours with little fading.

My take on the product:

Swatches of '70's Red' and 'Peachy Little Liars'








Lipstick comes in a rectangular shaped tube which has sharp edges and a matte finish black packaging, shade name along with the brand name is mentioned on the tube. The lipstick itself is edgy looking thus easy to apply. It is creamy and smooth in texture feels little waxy in nature and very light on lips, it almost feels like you haven’t worn anything. It is creamier matte rather than powdery matte, which I like, powdery matte finish always emphasizes lip lines and tends to suck up lip moisture, that is something I hate. On the very first application it will feel creamy and will settle down in a satin matte finish but after sometime it will transform into a decent matte look which feels moisturized and not at all drying, matte lovers with dry lips can wear it without any tension of flakey dry lip lines. Color payoff is good enough where a single swipe can give medium coverage but with two to three swipes it can easily cover with a opaque matte finish. It has a faint vanilla scent which is almost negligible. I found it has a really long wearing time of up to 5 to 6 hours with very little fading after a meal or so. Though it will not intensify your lip lines or settles into lip lines but you can be on a safe side by doing proper lip exfoliation before applying the matte lipstick. The ‘Peachy little Liars’ is a nice peachy n*de that will suit almost every Indian skin tones and as it is a subtle shade it can be a perfect daily wearable color for going office or collage. The ‘70’s red’ is a gorgeous hot red that will suit fair to medium skin tones, I am a big fan of this red lipstick which is a unique red as per my opinion, it can easily brighten up your face at anytime if you want. J

Pros:

·         Stylish looking sturdy packaging
·         Creamy and smooth texture
·         Moisturizing formula
·         Doesn’t dry out your lips
·         Doesn’t emphasize lip lines
·         Feels very light in your lips
·         Doesn’t crumbles while fading
·         Staying power is pretty good
·         Great color payoff
·         Beautiful shades


Cons:

·         Couldn’t find any

Verdict:

Overall I am impressed with the formula, a great relief for matte lovers like me who can wear these formulated lipsticks without any concern of dry flakes or intensified lip lines. Nice creamy texture, feels light weighted, pretty good staying power and off course these are intensely pigmented! I would highly recommend these lipsticks to all my matte lover friends which can be suitable for almost every Indian skin tones.

4.5/5

That’s all for today darlings!

Aroma Magic Insta Radiance Green Tea Pack Review


Hello Lovely Ladies!

Hope you all are doing very well. I am doing pretty good these days as there are lot of shopping going on almost every weekend, yes our biggest Bengali celebration ‘Durga Puja’ is just knocking at our doors yaaayyyy!!!!! :-D just few days left! I will keep you guys updated about my hauls once I get my hands on them. J Now coming to the review part which is about Aroma Magic Insta Radiance Green Tea Pack. I have tried this pack for 5 to 6 times so far and felt like sharing my experience with you guys.

Let’s start with the review now

What the product claims:



I am 100% free of parabens, harsh chemicals, alcohol, artificial fragrance and colour. My unique formulation powered by antioxidant benefits of green tea and carrot extracts make the skin healthy by neutralising the damaging effects of free radicals. They minimise the appearance of fine lines and age spots too. Jojoba oil, aloe vera gel and beeswax combine together to clean, hydrate and protect your skin. The natural fruit enzymes in me help to gently exfoliate, leaving behind fairer and smoother skin. The invigorating blend of orange & lime essential oils lightens blemishes, soothes and leaves your skin moisturised and fragrant.

How to use:

Apply a thin layer on clean skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Wipe or rinse off gently with lukewarm water. Use me twice a week for best results.

Price:




375(INR) for 100gm

Availability:

You can get it from here Click Here

My take on the product:





The product comes in squeezable tube packaging in eye catching lime green colour with twisted cap on the top. I prefer tube packaging over tubs as they maintain the hygiene issue. Packaging looks quite attractive and handy too. You can find the price, ingredients list in packaging labelling.  The mask comes in a creamy smooth satin texture in pearl white colour. It has a light soothing smell which is not at all bothersome for sensitive noses like mine. So I am happy with it as I don’t like any overpowering strong fragrance. Application is very easy as you have to take generous amount of the product and have to apply all over your face and neck, it will not look like a thick face mask rather looks like a creamy layer on the face which is very thin. It doesn’t create any tightening effect and cooling effect after application. I am really impressed with the ingredients as all of them are natural and they definitely don’t contain any harsh chemicals like parabens or so, so extremely safe for sensitive skin like me. After applying, we have to leave it for 20minutes or more and wash it off with normal water. I can see clearly visible clean skin with instant healthy glow which remains for day long, yes you can notice the instant effect and that’s really great if you are going for a party or so then it will be a good pick for instant result. It cleanses skin very well and pulls out the dirt making skin clear and glowy. You don’t feel the need of moisturizer after using this mask but with very dry skin, it is needed. It doesn’t give any greasy or sticky feeling after application. Continuous usage can make skin glow for long.

Pros:

·         Eye catching attractive packaging which is handy too
·         All natural ingredients
·         Non sticky light creamy texture which dries up quickly
·         Not over powering smell
·         Very effective on making skin clean and glowy
·         Gives instant healthy smooth skin
·         Doesn’t dry up skin after application
·         Doesn’t feel sticky on combination skin after rinsing off with water
·         Budget friendly
·         Not tested on animals
·         Free from parabens
·         No harsh chemicals

Cons:

·         Couldn’t find any

Verdict:

Overall it’s a great face pack which comes in handy packaging, with creamy texture gives instant glowy healthy looking skin without making it dry, makes skin clean and the glow remains for long. I would definitely recommend this face pack to all skin types people as it doesn’t contain any harsh chemical like parabens which can cause skin irritation but this is made of natural ingredients totally so just love it!

Thumps up to this product!

My Second Empty Post


Hi Lovely Ladies!

How you all are doing my beautiful ladies? Today I am here to share my second empty post with you guys. As you all know I am a beauty junkie and I always love to do experiment with different beauty products and most of the time I end up buying new products even before finishing half of the old ones. But today I am really happy to share some empties with you guys that I have finally managed to finish this time.
Let’s see what those are.

The Body Shop Moisture White Shiso UV Protection Cream SPF 30 PA+++
One of the best moisturizer and UV protection cream I have used so far. Great for daily use as it protects from sun tan and skin discoloration. I had little uneven skin tone near my chin area but I had experienced a good outcome after using this cream. This moisturizer is non- greasy and you won’t feel any oiliness after applying it and it gives you a matte finish effect. This one is the second tube I have finished and I am planning to repurchase it.  Full is here Click Here

Forest Essentials Facial Treatment Masque Madhulika Nourishing Honey Lep
It is a great facial mask for normal to dry skin people, and it's a blessing in the winters when there is lack of hydration and moisture for our skin, which makes it dull and dry. This works on each of these problems and makes the skin soft with no signs of dryness. It keeps skin very hydrated all day long adding an instant glow which remains for long. It also works on anti-tanning, pigmentation and it lightens up the skin slightly. Full review is here Click Here

Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser Mashobra Honey, Lemon & Rosewater
It smells exactly like pure rose water with a little hint of honey, I just love its divine smell. It’s a great facial cleanser for dry skin people as it doesn’t make skin dry. It cleanses very well leaving my skin soft and smooth and adds an instant glow to it. I am pretty impressed with this product and planning to get another one. Full review is here Click Here

Kama Ayurveda Lavender Patchouli Hair Cleanser
I was little skeptical about the ingredient list of the product as it contains SLES which can cause irritation on scalps and was not expecting much, but it has the lavender and patchouli extracts which acts as natural antiseptic, antifungal and antiviral too, so it can be great option for sensitive and itchy scalps and I really don’t have any complain about the product as I have finished my second bottle. My hair has become very soft and hair fall is much under control but obviously this is not only for this shampoo; I do use the Bringadi Intensive Hair Treatment from Kama Ayurveda which helped me recover from my hair trouble. Full review is here Click Here

Avene Thermal Spring Water
It is a must have facial spray for me. Its versatile nature makes it a unique spray. It can heal, soften your skin, help to bring out the natural glow, and can be used as a toner and makeup setting spray. As a whole a blessing for my skin in a form of water. Full review is here Click Here

The Body Shop Olive Body Butter
It’s a great body butter for normal to dry skin people. It is non-greasy, absorbs into skin instantly but keeps skin hydrated for 4 to 5 hours easily which is pretty good. It has a nice soothing smell which is refreshing too. I have finished a small tub and planning to get the full size of it in my next visit to the store.
So these are the products that I have managed to finish this time. Hope you guys have enjoyed my post. Don’t forget to share your thoughts below.
