The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick in shade 13

A Quick review bout a quick buy :) I was waiting on Geneva station and was bout to board a train to  Paris. I was feeling low since due to delay in checking out from my hotel I had missed our train by 2 mins that had cost us another 300 Franks ( Rs.21000 approx)  my hubby was quieter than usual seeing me upset due to my stupidity. A normal girl would sit down glued to the seat and vouch not to shop at least for the next 24 hrs but nutcase that I am I went around trying to cheer myself n picked up this lippy n few more things from Body Shop store on the station... I had to run again to the platform n saw the panic stricken face of my hubby...he was wondering I was bout to miss the train AGAIN! :) I clicked these pics in the train n also ended up giggling. Phewwwww my hubby too was smiling looking at me n blurted out " You really are crazy bout makeup hun" :P rather than sulk over what's been lost it's better to enjoy what one has, hai na :P n what I had at that moment was a super cute lipstick from Body Shop :D smiling ear to ear.

Body Shop Colour Crush lipstick in shade 13, it's a pretty pink shade in the tube but looks peachy pink on application....the shade looks peachy brown in the pick below buts its a refreshing berry pink with visible shimmer. The packaging is sturdy n travel friendly, comes in a silver casing with a pink logo of The Body Shop.

It imparts a lovely natural looking rosy tint to my lips but the glitter is a turn off for me. Gives medium coverage n has a very poor lasting power of 1 hr on my lips. Feels quite hydrating on the lips and dose not require gloss. I got this for Rs.1800/- approx, it's not a must have shade but very cute shade when you wanna walk out looking very natural n girly.

And this is how it looks on me

Sephora Cream Lipstick, Sexy Game

Hiya friends,
A quick review bout a beautiful lipstick from Sephora, Sexy Game. True to it's name it indeed is an enticing shade. A highly pigmented pink with a hint of brown, a shade that will suit almost every skin tone. 

Glides beautifully on the lips and has an awesome staying power of 6hrs before it fades leaving behind a rosy tint on the lips. Comes in a sturdy black bullet that is travel friendly and classy. The transparent bottom of bullet makes it easier to locate this pink beauty. 

Priced at a little over 10 Euros, Rs.850 approx is an excellent buy, the con being availability. The shade is an exact dupe of MAC Craving but with more pigment and staying power where as MAC craving is more creamier in texture.

My verdict, a must have shade in your kitty :)

L'OREAL Studio Secrets Universal Lip Glow

Hiya Folks,
Today will be reviewing a very cute product that am sure none of you gals will be able to resist. The moment I spotted this I couldn't help smiling. It looked like the plastic pink glirlie lipsticks that we gals had in our dolls makeup kit as kids :) I kept swatching it to believe that it's real.

It comes in classy black n pink Loreal bullet but when you look at the actual product it resembles strawberry jelly, a very tempting pink colour. Available in a single colour which changes to various shades of pink depending on the wearer. On me this colour turned to a very very mild pink that resembles any regular pink tinted lip balm so was not too happy bout the colour but the product in itself is quite hydrating if worn before applying your lipstick.

It's not 'et all glossy or shiny but works wonderfully for me since I have dry lips and they feel moisturized but not sticky like a gloss.The cons being availability in India and it's staying power which is 2hrs max.

Considering that it's priced at 21.90 Euros which is approximately  Rs.1750/- is not a must have product but the sheer cuteness of this product made me splurge. My take is you can skip buying this if you r immune to the girlie cuteness of this product ;)

Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder

Hiya Friends,
A quick review bout the much talked bout Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder the shade like its name fits me perfectly is 250, Sun Beige. As you can see I've already used this product couple of times and am loving it so far. It evens out my oily combination skin by absorbing excessive oil. The only con I see other than it's avalibility in India is the staying power which is 3-4hrs on a humid day and 6 hrs or more if I use a good primer. The powder is very fine so spreads evenly and dose not look cakey.

The colour is an exact match so even if I layer it, it gives a natural looking finish which is a big relief. It comes equiped with a mirror and sponge. The packaging is sleek and sturdy and the plastic see through top makes it easier to locate different colours in my stash.

Quite like it's name the company has has put up and array of 18 different shades to match different skin tones and am sure you will find your perfect match.

In the pic below I've use this with Fit Me Concealer in the same shade 250, Sun Beige. The best part is you get the concealer, foundation and press powder in the same shades so one dosent have to hunt for shades that match, makes life easier ;)

Lotsa Love
Priya :)

Maybelline pink Alert Lipstick, POW4

Maybelline has recently launched their range of Pink Alert Lipsticks with 4 bright pink shades. The moment I saw them I was like OMG these r such bright shades, almost like neon shades n will make my medium fair skin darker but I just had to try 'em coz they r PINKKKKK :D 

I picked the colour POW 4, a pretty peachy pink bright luking colour and exactly same to maybelline Matte 1. 

POW 4 from Maybelline Pink Alert

I loved the colour and rather than build on the bright pink shade I prefer to smudge it on my lips to impart a very natural looking pinkish tint to the lips.

POW 4 from Pink Alert Vs Matte1 from Maybelline

For starters as I said both shades are identical when it comes to colour as you can see for urself.
  • Matte 1 as the name goes is a matte shade where as POW 4 gives a moisturized look to the lips.
  • Matte 1 has a better staying power than POW 4 
  • Matte 1 looses to POW 4 when it comes to pigmentation, POW 4 gives a lovely pigmentation in a single swipe when compared to Matte 1.
  • Both are priced at Rs. 375/- so take ur pick :D 
Have a super day!

Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette

Hiya people,
This has been a post I've been meaning to write bout for over a month. It's been tough not sharing my experience with this beauty due to my very hectic schedule. Hope you all had a wonderful start to your new year. Moving on to the much talked bout product, Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette.

The packaging is simply beautiful, it looks like a box of handcrafted chocolates :P What I love bout this product is the beautiful assortment of rosy colours. With a medium to fair skin tone and a liking for natural looking everyday makeup this is just perfect :D

  • Strange is a pinkish white powdery colour, I didn't like it at the onset but it makes a lovely base for the others colours to show.
  • Dust is a glittery peachy pink 
  • Burnout a pretty colour that can be worn as a single eyeshadow shade for every day wear
  • Limit is again a matte pink

  • Buzz again is a glittery pink shade
  • Trick is a peachy shade thats lovely for highlighting the eyes
  • Nooner a subtle matte pinkish brow
  • Liar again a very beautiful wear it alone taupe colour

  • Factory is warm brown, a very pretty colour 
  • Mugshot is a little similar to Liar just a darker taupe 
  • Darkside looks like a shimmery grey in the pan but on application turns a grey-brown
  • Blackheart is a super blackish brown colour with little red glitter in it.

Blackheart, my most favorite shade of the lot

The packaging comes with 12 lovely shades, a big useful mirror, a double ended shadow brush and a sample of eye primers.

Primer samples 

The only con I see is the fallout and staying power, also the colours after blending tend to look quite similar, especially liar, factory, mugshot. Not a must have palette but definitely worth the outlay. 

Am wearing  Nooner as base, Buzz and Burnout to get this look

Am wearing Nooner as base, burnout in the middle, buzz in inner corners, factory and blackheart at the end and below the lashline.
