NYX Epic Black Mousse Liner – reviews and swatches

HI EVERYONE!!! ūüôčūüŹĽ

So, after ongoing persuasion¬†from my best friend, I have finally started this blog. I hope you find this blog interesting, your feedback is welcome and please feel free to give me suggestions on how to improve this blog. Since this is my first¬†post, kindly excuse me for any errors ūüôā

Today I‚Äôm reviewing the¬†NYX Epic Black Mousse Liner – the NYX website says that this is “An innovative fluffy light-weight formula with the boldest blackest black pigment you’ve ever seen. Glides on like butter and dries to a matte waterproof finish. This liner is EPIC.

  • It is indeed a jet black gel eyeliner, it dries fairly quickly, so if you are using this for smokey eyes, you must smudge this immediately with a smudging brush.
  • I really like the packaging, it is sturdy and has a good amount of product for the price.
  • This eyeliner is pigmented, quick drying and long-lasting.
  • It stays upto 8-9 hrs with an eye primer and without a primer it lasted for approx. 5-6 hrs.
  • It¬†is definitely at par with other gel eyeliners like¬†Inglot¬†Amc Eyeliner Gel – shade no. 77.

Have a look at some of the pictures of this product below:

Colourpop Haul!! Review and swatches – PART 1

Hey everyone! ūüôčūüŹĽ¬†I am back after a short gap and this time I am going to blow everyone’s mind with the amazing Colourpop‘s haul, review and swatches! I hope you guys enjoy reading this post!

So, I recently purchased quite a few products from the Colourpop Website. Bought 5 eye shadows, 2 blushes, 1 highlighter, 1 Mini Size Kit (includes 5 matte shades) and 1 Lippie Kit (includes 5  Lippie Pencils). International shipping is free for products above a total of USD$ 50!

And here is the most exciting part of this haul! Colourpop always gives free products on purchase of products above USD$ 50 and¬†they shipped¬†4 limited edition Ultra Matte Lip shades!! Isn’t that exciting? ūüėÉ ūüėÄ ūüė䬆These are worth USD$ 6 each! The moment I opened the package and checked my invoice, I saw the free products and was blown over by the quantity of these! Colourpop¬†products are available for purchase via¬†their website¬†https://colourpop.com

Have a look at their beautiful packaging and their sweet personalised message:

dsc_0001dsc_0005dsc_0006
dsc_00091st Product: The eyeshadows (net weight 2.1 G / 0.07 oz each) are extremely pigmented, have glittery look and are extremely buttery in texture. They are super blendable and have a great staying power (I would recommend using an eye primer, so that the eyeshadow stays in place and the color pay off is better). I will be reviewing good & affordable eye primers in my blog soon. The packaging of these eyeshadows are of pretty good quality, they have a transparent lid, so it is easy to locate the colors without opening them.

Colourpop’s website description¬†:¬†This long-wearing cr√®me powder formula has an elastic-like texture that is totally party proof. Avoid the fall out from traditional powder shadows and say goodbye to raccoon eyes! This feather soft formula glides on and feels freakin‚Äô amazing. Super Shock Shadows come in a ton of kick ass shades in multiple fabulous finishes.

The Ingredients include: Isododecane, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Silica, Boron Nitride, Cyclohexasiloxane, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Dimethicone/Vinyltrimethylsiloxysilicate Crosspolymer, Propylene Carbonate, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Phenoxyethanol, C30-45 Alkyl Cetearyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Tin Oxide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491 (Ci 77499), Mica (Ci 77019), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).

NYX Simply Nude Lip Cream (Disrobed) – reviews and swatches

HI EVERYONE!!! ūüôčūüŹĽ

Today I‚Äôm reviewing the NYX Simply Nude Lip Cream in shade Disrobed – the NYX website says “These¬†Nude Lip Creams are available in six earthy shades. Swipe on this velvety and moisturizing cream to leave your lips with a subtle satin finish.

  • This lip cream is a warm nude colour with¬†slight undertones of pink. The¬†formula is smooth, pigmented and has a creamy finish.¬†
  • This shade will suit mostly fair –¬†medium skin tones.
  • It spreads easily on the lips and gives rich color in a single swipe.
  • The packaging is classy, it is sturdy and has a good amount of product for the price.
  • This lip cream comes in the standard lip crayon packaging. It has a twist up mechanism which makes it easy to use.
  • No sharpening is needed which means no product is wasted. One needs to be careful while putting the cap¬†of the lip cream to avoid any damage or breakage.
  • The staying power is pretty decent and this lasted on my lips for¬†approx 4 hours.

Have a look at some of the pictures of this product below:
