Shahnaz Husain Fair One Plus Fairness Cream Review

What Is It And Who Is It For? Shahnaz Husain Fair One Plus Fairness Cream is a cream that promises a comparatively fairer skin in just two weeks. This product can be used by a person belonging to any gender or age.

PRICE:

50 grams for Rupees 75.

Squeeze the cream onto palm and apply it on face and neck. Use this cream twice a day.

My Experience with Shahnaz Husain Fair One plus Fairness Cream:

The cream had a very decent smell. It was more like a flowery smell. The first time I applied the cream to my face and neck, I realized that the cream had a heavy formula. I have an oily skin. So applying this cream, made me look like some ‘Halwai'(confectioner). But I really wanted to get rid of that melanin formation. So I continued using it for a few days. I was much disciplined towards this product. I made sure that I applied it twice a day. To my surprise, the product worked. It did give me even skin tone and each time I applied it, it made my skin glow. This product doesn’t really work as a fairness cream. You see no cream can work so. You cannot really change the color you were born with. This product works great for people with dry skin to normal skin.

Shahnaz Husain Fair One Plus Fairness Cream Review 1

POSITIVES

1) Gives an even skin tone i.e., helps reduce melanin formation.

2) Glowy skin

3) Moisturizes skin

4) Pretty smell

5) Natural ingredients

NEGATIVES

1) Doesn’t make you fairer

2) Heavy formula

Overall Would I Recommend?

Well, I would surely repurchase it. If you are suffering from melanin issues, I would recommend it and would also suggest you to be very dedicated towards it. But let me warn you that it doesn’t work like a fairness cream. You can use it as a moisturizer as well.

NOTE: To all those with oily skin, I am sorry but this isn’t your cup of tea 🙁

Nykaa Paintstix Peaches and Cream 04 Review

Who is it for? Nykaa Peaches and Cream Paintstix  lipstick is for those looking for an apricot shade lipstick.

Price:

3.5 grams for Rupees 425, which is quite expensive 🙁

Nykaa Paintstix Peaches and Cream 04 Review 1

How To Use It?

Swipe it on and get the look! Naaahhhh… I was just kidding 😛 The lipstick doesn’t really have a matte finish. So before you apply it, give your lips an outline with a lip liner. Maroon or brown lip liners would go well. Wondering why I haven’t included lip balm in the beginning of the procedure? Well, as stated before this product has ingredients like petroleum jelly and shea butter which will moisturize your lips. So if you apply lip balm too, your lips will end up very very glossy and I you don’t want that do you?

My Experience with Nykaa Peaches and Cream Paintstix 04:

Nykaa Paintstix Peaches and Cream 04 Review 3

The first time I applied it onto my lips, the smell made me linger. It had a peachy smell. My tongue really wanted to taste it but I told it not to 😛 It perfectly glided on my lips just like butter on a hot pan. Just one stroke did all that it has to. So a thumbs up in ‘Extensive color intensity’ box. Let me tell you something now; if a lipstick consists of petroleum jelly and it promises matte finish, then it is surely fooling you. The lipstick first appeared glossy to me but after 15 mins or so, it ‘kind’ of gave me a matte finish. It wasn’t perfect though. So I am not really satisfied with the matte finish but it did moisturize my lips. I really wanted to see if it lasted long or not. So I left it for the rest of the day. But to my sorrow, it dint even last for 2 hours 🙁 and that forces me to give thumbs down in the ‘Super long wear’ box 🙁

Nykaa Paintstix Peaches and Cream 04 Review 4

Positives 
  1. Lovely fragrance
  2. Extreme color intensity
  3. Glides effortlessly on lips
  4. Moisturizes your lips
  5. Soft consistency
  6. Existence of natural ingredients
  7. Soft and light formula
Negatives 
  1. Poor on matte finish
  2. Smudges easily
  3. Doesn’t last long
  4. Expensive
  5. Isn’t water proof
Overall Would I Repurchase or Recommend 

I wouldn’t really recommend or repurchase. Instead of buying Nykaa paintstix worth Rupees 425 that promises me matte but fails to satisfy, I would like to get Maybelline super stay 14-hour lipstick that gives me perfect matte finish and is available for Rupees 430 only(3.3 grams). But if you really want to try Nykaa paintstix peaches n cream 04, you can order it from the following website

Glossy Polish Verdict:

3/5

Maybelline Fit Me 202 Medium Coral Blush Review

Maybelline Fit Me Blush Medium Coral: Hello there prettiness! All we girls are desperate to get just the right shade on our cheekbones to emphasize them and get that youthful appearance, aren’t we? Well Well, Maybelline New York presents Fit me blush that fits perfectly in your make up kit and on your skin too. I dont want to reveal much in the beginning itself. Take a ride through my review and decide if you really want to get this product or not. So, here we begin <3

How Did I Meet This Little Guy?

Well, two months back my aunt gifted me a complete set of Maybelline New York products, which included Fit Me Blush too. I dint really get a chance to use it then. I had my sister’s wedding on 23rd of February. I completely forgot about the kit and was busy searching for a new blush. As the saying goes, “A person travels the entire world in search of something that he finds at home.” That was exactly what I was doing. Later on, my mom reminded me about the kit and that is when i got a chance to try out this naive guy.

Maybelline Fit Me 202 Medium Coral Blush Review

Price:

4.5 grams for Rupees 400

My Experience With Maybelline Fit Me Blush Medium Coral

The first time i saw him (Fit me blush), I seriously fell in love with him. The packaging was damn cute<3 It is a rectangular box with two squares. One was filled with blush and a cute little brush was placed in the adjacent square. I dint really like the quality of brush though. I was then hoping for a pretty fragrance, but the blush smelled a bit weird (a kind of chemical smell or something). I applied it onto my face and it blended perfectly with my skin. It looked natural but gave me just the right shine <3 the texture was super smooth. The brand did stand on its words. But here comes the real challenge! Is it long lasting? Well, yes it is 🙂 and it is oil free too 🙂 This is just the product I was looking for. Infact it is the product that every girl could ever look for. Out of all the products I have used, this one excelled in keeping its promises 🙂

Maybelline Fit Me 202 Medium Coral Blush Review 1

Maybelline Fit Me 202 Medium Coral Blush Review 3

CONS
  1. Poor quality of brush

Would I Repurchase Or Recommend?

I would surely repurchase this product and recommend it too.

Shahnaz Husain 8 in 1 Nano Sun Block

Who is this for? Shahnaz Husain 8 in 1 Nano Sun Block is for those looking for an affordable sunblock with more added benefits.

Shahnaz Husain 8 in 1 Nano Sun Block

Price:

80 grams for rupees 230 which is very budget friendly when compared to other sunscreens.

How to Use?

Apply on face, neck, and arms 10 minutes before sun exposure. Leave on and let it do the magic.

My Experience with Shahnaz Husain 8 in 1 Nano Sun Block:

The first time I squeezed the sunscreen onto my palm, the fragrance took away my senses for a moment. It smelled great. After I applied the sunscreen on my face, neck, and arms; my opinion completely changed. The product had a very heavy formula. It felt as if I have applied some thousand layers of cream but it perfectly sat on my skin. I could hardly breathe. Yet I wanted to know how it worked as a product for what it was made. So I stepped out into the Sun and got sun-kissed. I came back home and it did save me from all the UVA and UVB rays and most of all protected me from getting tanned. So, it did kind of satisfy me.

Well, I come from a very middle-class family. So to be frank, my heart really didn’t allow me to get a better sunscreen till I finished this. So I continued applying it for a couple of days. I realized that it was neither waterproof nor skin whitening. Well, I was sensible enough to not expect a sunscreen to work as an anti-aging product and that saved me from disappointment. It surely was matte and non-greasy and that put up a smile on my face.

What did I like?
  1. It behaves as a barrier to your skin when applied which means it surely gives you protection from tan.
  2. It is perfectly matte.
  3. It is not greasy as claimed by the brand.
  4. The high SPF is great for summers.
  5. Among all the sunscreens in the market, Shahnaz Husain Nano sun block SPF 40 counts itself in the most affordable product list.
  6. It has a nice fruity smell.
What did I not like?
  1. When a product assures you nongreasy feature, it can never act as a moisturizer. Hence, the product fails to act as a moisturizer.
  2. The product is not waterproof.
  3. Skin whitening? No, not at all.
  4. Anti-aging? Well, the brand has again claimed something which the product doesn’t offer.
  5. It is a very heavy weight formula.
Overall Would I Repurchase Or Recommend?

Well, I wouldn’t count this product in the ‘Must-have skin care products’ list. I personally would not repurchase this. The formula of this product is a way to heavy. But if you are on a tight budget and yet need a sunscreen, you can surely go for this product. Be aware! The product doesn’t give all that it promises as listed in the negatives section. But it sure works great as an anti-tan…

Glossy Polish Verdict?

3/5

Blistex Medicated Lip Balm Spf 15

Who Is It For? Blistex Lip Balm Spf 15 is more than any other regular lip balm. Not only does it moisturize your lips, but also acts as a lip sunscreen. This product works wonders on sore and super chapped lips. It is especially for those who are sick of their lips getting tanned.

Blistex Lip Balm Spf 15

Price-

4.25grams for $ .99

Sensitive Skin Alert-

No

My Experience With Blistex Medicated Lip Balm

PACKAGING-

The body of the product comes in sea green color and has a lipstick rotating mechanism. A cap is provided that prevents the balm from getting exposed to the surroundings. The product, thus, has a hygienic packaging.

Color AND TEXTURE-

The balm originally is baby pink in color but appears colorless, when applied. It glides on the lips flawlessly, giving lips a shiny look.

It has got a smooth texture.

FRAGRANCE-

The balm has got a minty smell. To me, it smelled like mild zandu balm and thus, I’m not quite galvanized by the fragrance.

EXPERIENCE-

The first time I applied Blistex medicated lip balm, my lips felt guarded; felt like never before. My lips received just the right amount of moisturization. They felt very light. The lip balm protected my lips incredibly from decolorizing.

What I liked?
  • A perfect lip sunscreen
  • Soothes super chapped lips
  • Light formula
  • Hygienic packaging
  • Smooth texture
  • Seals in moisture
What I did not Like?
  • Fragrance
Would I Recommend It?

A big thumbs up to this product. A sure buy, it is.

PS: Once you get used to this lip balm, you would not like to replace it.

RATING- 5/5

Maybelline the Hyper Curl Volum' Express Easy Wash Mascara Review

Hello, there prettiness. I hope the Sun has been kind to you. Do drink loads of water 🙂 Well, today I’ll be reviewing a product which is the reason behind Maybelline’s establishment-A Mascara. Hold on, aren’t you aware of the company’s evolution story? Read on for some interesting stuff 🙂
The creator of Maybelline Company Thomas Lyle Williams noticed his older sister Maybel applying a mixture of Vaseline and coal dust to her eyelashes to give them a darker, fuller look. He adapted this technique with a chemistry set and produced a product sold locally called lash-in-brow-line and thus, mascara became a very important beauty product in William’s life. Now that you know everything about the company, let’s get started with review 🙂

In the beginning, the cute packaging of the product caught my entire attention. You know that pink and black combination <3 the best thing about this product is undoubtedly its brush, which I would rather prefer calling as a magic wand. The brush perfectly sets in between your lashes and slides perfectly on your lashes. The dark liquid completely serves its purpose. It suits contact wears too. Another great thing about this product is that it’s easily removable, so you don’t end up looking like a bhoooth 😛

Maybelline Colorshow Red Diva 204 Lipstick Review 1

Hello there prettiness 🙂 Maybelline New York launched a wide range of Colorshow lipsticks 2 years back and I am probably the last one to write about it 😛 Last month I visited my sister’s engagement and that was the first time I laid eyes upon this beautiful piece of creation. I quickly bought one and tried on. And here I am today, writing a review on the same. So ready?

Let’s hit this!

Maybelline Colorshow Red Diva 204 Lipstick Review 3

Basic Info about Maybelline Colorshow Red Diva 204 Lipstick

 

WHAT IS IT AND WHO IS IT FOR?

Maybelline New York Colorshow 204 red diva lipstick is a red coloured glossy lipstick that every girl would love to try. Anyone with lips can try it on 😛 Suits any skin tone.

 

PRICE:

3.9 grams for Rupees 299

 

SENSITIVE SKIN ALERT:

No.

Maybelline Colorshow Red Diva 204 Lipstick Review 2

NATURAL/ORGANIC/VEGAN?

Well, this question took a lot of hard work. The brand printed the ingredients in a very tiny font, so I ended up googling to find the answer and finally the answer to this question is ‘NONE OF THE ABOVE’ -_-

 

WHAT DOES THE BRAND CLAIM?

The Maybelline New York brand has to say so about their wide range of Colorshow lipsticks:

1) Moisture rich formula that keeps the lips moisturized

2) Super hydrating formula

3) Bold color on one stroke

4) Long lasting formula

5) Sweet fragrance

6) Light formula

7) Lasts for four to five hours

Maybelline Colorshow Red Diva 204 Lipstick Review 4

HOW TO USE 

One stroke and flash…. get the look 😉 You could scrub your lips before applying it because no one would really want to apply lipstick on chapped lips. You could use a lip liner too. Red or maroon colored lip liners would go well with this lipcolor. (Maroon suits the best <3)

Note: Do not apply a lip balm because you will end up having very very very glossy lips.

 

My Experience with Maybelline Colorshow Red Diva 204 Lipstick

The first time I applied it, it just glided on my lips as if it was meant for me 😛 It had a fruity smell that I really loved. I didn’t really find the need to apply a lip balm which is a very happy news for a lazy bum like me 😛 It gave me extreme and bold color in just one stroke. The formula was super hydrated and light as promised by the brand. But here comes the real challenge, does it last long? To find the answer to this question, I applied it and attended a party. It hardly stayed for 2 hours. But that’s ok! I am really satisfied with all the other features of the lipstick 🙂

Maybelline Colorshow Red Diva 204 Lipstick Review

Overall Performance of Maybelline Colorshow Red Diva 204 Lipstick

 

POSITIVES

  • Creamy and smooth texture
  • Light formula
  • Extreme color on one stroke
  • Lovely packaging
  • Decent smell
  • Moisturizes your lips
  • Easily removable

 

NEGATIVES

  • Doesn’t last long
  • Smudges easily

 

Overall Would I Repurchase?

Would I repurchase? Ha-ha, I have already purchased other shades from the Colorshow range and I would recommend it as well. But be strong to face the disappointment in long lasting feature of this product. However, it does excel itself in all the other factors.

You can purchase this product is staying power is not your concern  🙂
