Benefit POREfessional Primer Review 4

My Experience with Benefit the Porefessional Primer:

After MAC Prep +Prime Skin Base Visage this was the next primer I purchased so now the third one. This is specially used for problematic skin i.e. open pores, unlike the earlier ones I have used. I must say it does what the brand claims about it. So, I was quite satisfied with the product.

Packaging-

I just love the packaging…it’s so cute and attractive. The color of the packaging is so soothing to the eye. The product is in a tube form which is compact and handy. It has a black cap with opens on revolving. It is travel-friendly. All in all thumbs up for the packaging.

Texture –

The color of the product is beige and the texture is light and smooth, easy to blend and silky on the skin and is oil free. Thumbs up for this as well.

Stay-

It has a good stay of around 8 hours.

Result –

It reduces the appearance of your pores instantly. The texture is such that it fills your pores instantly giving an illusion of smooth skin free of open pores.

Price-

The price is on the higher side but this product is a blessing for people with open pores problems as makeup looks really bad and untidy on such skin.

Benefit POREfessional Primer Review 2

Positives
  1. Creates a silky smooth canvas for all the makeup on the face.
  2. Reduces the appearance of open pores instantly
  3. Safe for sensitive skin as well
  4. Makes the makeup stay longer
  5. Usable in all seasons – oil-free
  6. Packaging is good
  7. Easy to use.
  8. Stay is good.
  9. Blends easily.
  10. Value for money.
Negatives
  1. Expensive product.
Would I repurchase and recommend?

Yes I will repurchase and recommend to all the people out there.

My Experience with Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette

Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette 3

New addition to my highlighter collection. Pocket-friendly and travel-friendly, I love this palette.

 

This palette comes in a sturdy packaging with that signature leopard prints cover. Very classy I must say. They score full points for luxury!

 

Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette 5

Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette includes four powder based, miniature-sized versions of the permanent Face Illuminators:

  • Addiction (gilded gold highlight)
  • Devotion (cool highlight)
  • Seduction (soft bronze highlight)
  • Indiscretion (warm rose gold highlight)

It’s pretty neat, the same swirled, raised design, but everything is on a smaller scale. It is for someone who likes different highlighter shades and would use two or three of them…aka perfect for makeup artists!!

The product is buildable from medium to opaque coverage with a noticeable sheen. The texture is smooth and blendable, but there is a bit of dryness to it that seems common to these types of products.

On an average, the highlighter tends to last around eight hours. Though the stay of the product can be increased using other products like MAC Fix+ or Gerard Slay All Day!

Here are the deets of the shades:

Addiction (gilded gold highlight): a medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a lightly sparkly, metallic finish. This is a tricky color but if you get it right it looks beautiful in sun kissed and ethnic looks

 

Devotion (cool highlight): This is a light pink highlighter with warmer undertones and cooler, violet and light pink shimmer. With sheer to medium coverage. It will never be too intense.

 

Seduction (soft bronze highlight): This is the darkest shade that I think will be excellent highlighter for deep skin tones. Very buildable, in fact use it with a light hand as it can give an opaque finish

 

Indiscretion (warm rose gold highlight): is a light-medium, rosy copper with warm undertones and a soft, golden sheen. Again buildable but use with a light hand.

 

Since the individual Illuminators are pricey, this is a good way to try them all for less than the cost of two full-sized shades.

Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette 6

Overall Performance of Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette

Positives 

  • All four color are beautiful
  • Give natural glow to the skin.
  • Safe for sensitive skin as well
  • Highly pigmented
  • All the colors are buildable.
  • Very light on the skin
  • Easily Blendable
  • Stays for long
  • Value for money

 

Negatives

  • The product is bit dry on application though it can be easily blended.
  • The product is dusty on application….but excess can be easily dusted away using a fan brush.

Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

Yes I will repurchase and recommend to all the people out there.

NYX Soft Matte lip Cream 05 Antwerp Review 4

Who is it for?NYX Antwerp is for those looking for a coral pink soft matte lipstick for daily wear.

NYX Antwerp

Price:

Rs.650

How to Use:

Direct application on the lips with the provided applicator.

My Experience with NYX Antwerp

Antwerp is a coral pink color. Though it looks quite bright in the tube on the lips, it does not look intense. It gives a natural look. It comes in a plastic tube with a black cap. The packaging looks good. The tube is small which makes it very handy to carry in a purse or even in your jeans pocket. It has an inbuilt applicator like that of a gloss which is soft in the application and helps the product spread evenly on the lips.

The best things about this product are first, it is much pigmented comes opaque on the lips. Secondly, though it gives a matte finish on the application, it is very soft like a cream. Thirdly, it is long lasting 5-6 hours on my lips. Though the color keeps on fading with time the shade remains on the lips. Since these are matte finish your lips should not be dry, they must be properly nourished. It’s better to apply after a lip balm application.

Apply directly, get a matte finish.

Apply on a lip balm, get a semi-matte finish.

Apply on a lip balm and finish with a gloss, get a glossy finish.

One of its kind product which is neither a lipstick nor a gloss, but a creamy matte lip color. It has fun to apply texture.

Positives
  1. Handy packaging
  2. Good shade of pink
  3. Soft in application
  4. Very pigmented
  5. Matte finish
  6. Long stay
  7. Fun to apply texture
Negatives 
  1. Looks bad on dry lips
  2. Settles in lip lines
  3. For better results blend with a fingertip
Would I repurchase and recommend?

Yes, I would repurchase it and recommend as well.

Mac Kinda Sexy Matte Lipstick Review 4

Mac Kinda Sexy Lipstick Review: Hello, all my makeup junkies!Today I will be reviewing another beautiful lipstick by MAC Kinda Sexy… as the name suggests … this shade is sexy. All of us know how a MAC store has a magnet in it and whenever you pass by the store it automatically starts pulling you towards it without any intent to buying anything but we end up buying something or the other. So the similar thing happened to me this Saturday….I was out for shopping at a mall and I was pulled by this MAC store and I ended up buying this lipstick. Anyways I loved it so I purchased it … excuses for my husband’s reaction to another shopping bag by MAC.

My experience with Mac Kinda Sexy Lipstick

I loved this one as well!!

The color(when I see it), The texture(while I apply it on my lips), The color(on my lips), The feel(to my lips), The stay all is wow.

The color is a pretty rosy pink, not too bright, a soft rosy color which looks so natural on the lips. Just perfect for that soothing looks in the harsh summer.

The texture is soft and smooth on application and keeps the lips moisturized.

The stay is medium…as the color is very light…you will need to reapply after 4-5 hours unlike any other matte lipstick by MAC… but still, I love it because the color is unique.

For me, this shade works well when I have full makeup on…otherwise it makes my face look dull and washed out. But for me, that’s ok as I love the full makeup look.

I think this shade will suit people with fair pink undertone skins.

how to choose the right foundation 4

Foundation Choose Right Shade: Choosing the right foundation for yourself is actually a difficult task with n number of products and brands available. There is a lack of knowledge and lack of support at the stores. What should you do?!

how to choose the right foundation 1

So here I bring for an easy guide to help you choose the right foundation for your skin.

Foundation Shade Finder

Three things should be kept in mind before selecting a foundation. They are:

  1. Skin undertones
  2. Skin type
  3. Foundation coverage
First we will talk about Undertones

What is skin undertone? An undertone is a color which is just beneath your skin. Your skin color may change with time, but your skin undertone always remains the same.

Skin undertones are generally divided into 3 colors:
  1. Cool
  2. Warm
  3. Neutral/olive

how to choose the right foundation 5

How to judge which undertone are you?

Look at your wrist veins in natural light and try judge whether they are of green color or blue color. If your veins are of greenish color it means you have warm undertones or yellow undertone. If your veins are of bluish color it means you have cool undertones or pink undertone. If you feel like it’s a mix of both or you are unable to judge which color it is it means you have a neutral undertone or olive undertone.

Hacks to find out your undertones:
  1. Stand in sunlight and judge the color of your wrist veins.
  2. Hold a piece of silver or platinum jewelry next to your skin, hold a piece of gold jewelry side by side. Choose which suits your skin tone better. If silver or platinum suits you better then you have cool undertones and if gold jewelry suits you better then you have warm undertones. If you feel both are suiting you equally well then you might have neutral undertones.
  3. Take a picture of yourself without makeup in natural light. Look at the picture and judge your undertone.

how to choose the right foundation 6

So, when you are done with judging you skin undertone you will select the foundation according to your undertones. If you have warm undertones you will select a foundation which has a yellowish color to it. If you have cool undertones you will select a foundation which has a pinkish color to it. Neutral or olive undertones are less so you can mix the yellow and pink.

Skin Types and Coverage of Foundation

Not everyone has the same skin type. Different people have different skin types.

  1. Oily skin
  2. Dry skin
  3. Combination skin
  4. Normal skin
  5. Mature skin
  6. Acne prone skin

how to choose the right foundation 9

Oily Skin

For people having oily skin, the right foundation will be the water-based or oil-free foundation, mouse foundation, a powder foundation with a matte effect. Use a medium to full coverage foundation. Avoid using fingers for application as it may generate heat with the rubbing and melt the product instead of blending in the skin.

Dry Skin

For people having dry skin, the right foundation will be the cream foundation or liquid foundation with hydrating properties. Apply using fingers, blending will be better.

Combination Skin

For people having combination skin, the right foundation is powder or liquid foundation with more than 50 water content.

Normal Skin

These people are blessed as any type of foundation goes on their skin. Texture and coverage are according to your wish.

Mature Skin

Skin ages with time. People having wrinkles should avoid heavy foundations as they settle in the lines and make them more prominent. Go for light formulations like liquid foundations or tinted moisturizers.

Acne-prone Skin

For people having acne prone the right foundation will be the one which is non-greasy, non-comedogenic (or non-acnegenic), hypoallergenic, non-irritating, and oil-free. Use water-based foundations. Use a medium to full coverage foundation to hide the pimples. Or use the right concealer( next article) and go with medium coverage foundation.

how to choose the right foundation 8

Choosing the Right Shade of your Foundation

Lastly choosing the right shade is of utmost importance. If you go too light than your original skin shade your makeup will turn grey. If you go too dark than your original skin shade your makeup will look burnt. In both the cases you will not look natural and hence it will deteriorate your beauty.

how to choose the right foundation 2

how to choose the right foundation 3

 Always test your foundation on the jawline!!

how to choose the right foundation 7

Buy a foundation which either matches your skin shade or is one shade lighter than your original skin shade. If you buy the foundation of your skin shade then the powder must be one shade lighter. If you buy foundation one shade lighter then the powder should be of the same shade.

That’s it. Do all of this once,and you are set for life 😀 to Share this article with all your girlfriends! Let’s come together in this war against bad foundations 😛

Farsali Rose Gold Elixir Review 5

Farsali Rose Gold Elixir: Hello all my makeup junkies!I think by now all are aware of this product…it is all over YouTube and everywhere on the internet. It needs no introduction. Everyone is going crazy about this beauty oil. I am not a big fan of face oils….iv never used them but seeing the popularity of this one I was much attracted to buy it. So I purchased it and today I will be reviewing it for you.

Farsali Rose Gold Elixir 2

Basic Info about Farsali Rose Gold Elixir

What makes Farsali Rose Gold Elixir unique?

I think the infused gold particles and the way it is advertised makes it unique and luxurious.

Price

Rs.3600 for 15ml

Organic/ Natural/ Vegan?

No.

Farsali Rose Gold Elixir Uses

  1. DETAILS: Ideal for all skin types. Nut free product.
  2. USAGE: Ideal for daytime use.
  3. SCENT: Pleasant uplifting citrus aroma.
  4. Daily Moisturizer
    Developed in the USA, by a team of cosmetic scientists, this beauty oil is an effective lightweight moisturizer with added anti-aging benefits (for all skin types). Use the Rose Gold Elixir as a daily moisturizer, to keep your skin healthy and hydrated. The pure 24k Gold flakes absorb right into your skin, leaving your skin glowing and naturally radiant. The base of this luxurious Elixir is Rosehip seed oil. Rosehip seed is made up of 77% fatty acids. High in linoleic and linolenic acids, vitamin C, and vitamin A (retinol); all essential for skin health. Rosehips have been found to regenerate tissue and reduce the appearance of fine lineshyper pigmentation, and stretch marks.
  5. Hydrating Lips
    It can be used to hydrate lips before applying lipstick. The Rose Gold Elixir effectively keeps lips from drying out, especially when using liquid/matte lipsticks, without affecting the finish. TIP: Make sure to let the drops absorb into the lips before applying lipstick.
  6. Mix With Foundation
    Use 1-3 drops to mix with your favorite foundation (we recommend a full coverage matte foundation) to keep your skin hydrated and glowing.
  7. Revive Dried Cream Products
    Sometimes cream products can tend to dry out. Instead of throwing them away, just add 1-3 drops to your favorite cream concealer, contour, highlight, or brow pomade, to bring them back to life!
TIP: APPLICATION WITH A BEAUTY SPONGE OR BRUSH

Start by dotting your foundation onto your skin first, then apply 1-2 drops on a damp beauty sponge (or brush) to blend in your foundation for a glowing finish. For those with dry under eyes (or requiring extra hydration), you can also use with concealer and contour. First apply concealer under eyes, followed by the cream contour. Then apply 2 drops of Rose Gold Elixir to a damp beauty sponge (or brush) and blend in. This makes blending easier and the 24k Gold helps achieve that radiant glow! Neutral pinky-rose

Farsali Rose Gold Elixir Review 3

My experience with Farsali Rose Gold Elixir

The more I was excited using this product the more I was disappointed this one.

I first used it with my foundation. Applied foundation on my face, took three drops of gold elixir on my beauty blender and started blending my foundation. The foundation started slipping off the face. Somehow I managed to blend effectively. The way they show it on YouTube and Instagram it was not as effective. After one or two hours my face started looking dull. I tried two three times but every time the same result. Then I stopped using it with foundation. Then the time I thought of using it as a normal day moisturizer until that time the product started smelling bad and some white residue started accumulating on the neck of the bottle. I am not sure if the product expired or I did not store it properly, whatever the reason but the product started smelling bad after 3-4 uses.

The texture is smooth on application and blends easily. Its light weight and gets absorbed by the skin quickly.

It smells good…citrusy. The gold particles make the product look luxurious.

Packaging is good luxurious. Easy to use dropper cap lets you have control over the amount of product you use.

Though I have mostly seen people praising it and all makeup artists on Instagram are using it in their everyday makeup routine but personally, this product did not work well for me.

Farsali Rose Gold Elixir Review 4

Overall Performance of Farsali Rose Gold Elixir

Positives:
  1. Made from only 6 ingredients. Simple formula.
  2. Packaging good
  3. Smells good
  4. Easy to use
Negatives:
  1. Expensive
  2. Not for all skin type. I think it works well for dry skins. Not sure though
  3. Not available easily
Would I recommend and repurchase it?

No, I will not recommend and repurchase the product.
