MOND’SUB Anti-wrinkle, Moisturizing, Nourishing & Hydrating Facial Mask REVIEW

(Part of PR Kit)
Hello everybody, Hope you all are doing well. Few days ago, I reviewed the MOND'SUB Gold Brightening, Moisturizing & Antiwrinkle mask . Do check it out, if you haven't already. 

Today, I'm up with yet another sheet mask from MOND'SUB. Its from their Collagen Silk Mask Series.




PRICE: Rs.129 for 30g




INGREDIENTS & OTHER DETAILS:



PACKAGING:

The Sheet mask comes in a lavender foil packaging with all the details and instructions mentioned in the pack. The mask comes with two films- one pearlised and the other is a blue film. Both the films are to be removed prior application. Overall the packaging is very travel friendly and hassle free.





MY THOUGHTS ON THE PRODUCT:


I've used a lot of sheet masks in the past lately, and they are my go-to masks. I've never got an issue of over drying skin, my skin is basically a combination skin with an oily T-zone. 

I've kept this mask on me for about 15 minutes, after which I massaged the extra serum and let it be there on me for an extra 5 minutes and then rinsed it off. I found my skin to have an extra glow which usually the strobe creams give. My skin felt tightened and my whole face felt to be soft and supple.

This mask did moisturized and brightened my skin and gave a healthy 'strobe cream like' glow, which was very beautiful. I really recommend it to everyone and its affordable too :)



PROS:
  • Gives a 'strobe cream like' glow
  • Moisturizes the skin
  • Brightens & tightens your face
  • Contains all natural ingredients
  • Travel friendly

CONS:
Haven't found any.

RATINGS: 5/5

PACKAGING:

Packaging is very basic , color coordinated and simple; with silver cap. It is travel friendly and sharpen-able.

Instagram Makeup Shopping 101| Tips | Tricks | Experience


Hello everybody! I hope you all are doing well.





Instagram stores are very popular now-a-days, be it for clothing, makeup, jewellery, everything! There are lots and lots of ‘intsa-seller’ and it makes it difficult for consumers like us to take the right decision. So you must also keep in mind some few basic points before buying something from an instagram seller.


  •        Look at number of followers they have. It’s preferable that you go for pages that have more than a 1000 followers. But also keep in mind that followers can be bought online as well.
  •          Take a look at their tagged pictures. If you get to see lots of images of other customers, try going through as many posts as possible. You’ll get to know ‘bout the page’s response and the customer’s opinion as well.
  •        Go for pages of your city. They might provide you COD and free shipping.
           For Example: I live in Guwahati, so I opt for a page which is based in Guwahati. They offered me COD, next day delivery and also free shipping. So it’s very convenient for me to order through them and I had a safe experience as well.

  •       Try looking through all the posts and comments. Look at the prices and compare their prices with different pages. For Example: If one seller is selling a product for say Rs.300 and the same product is being sold for Rs.250 at another seller, then try opting for the second seller. But make sure to apply the first two steps in the second seller.




  •          Don’t be fooled by ‘less priced’ products.
  •        There are many pages that seller fake ABH palettes, MAC lipsticks, etc. So if they are being labelled as ‘first copies’ and the seller tells you that they are selling real products, don’t be fooled by it.
  •    If you pay by using paytm or bank transfer, make sure to immediately tell the seller through call or text.
  •       If your seller tells you that your product has been dispatched, make sure to ask them the tracking ID or link. It makes it easily for you to know where your product is being located.
  •         NEVER FORGET to screenshot every message that you receive from your seller on instagram. Save them as proofs and also don’t forget to screenshot your transactions and keep all the details.
  •         Lastly, go for pages that are recommended by everyone and have genuine records


So guys, this are all the tips that I’ve put together from my experience from instagram sellers. 
If you want to share your own opinion on it, please do write back to me at the comments section below.

FREEDOM Pro Contour Kit (Medium 02) REVIEW

Hello everybody, I've had this product since the last few months. I was trying it out and wanted to give a detailed review 'bout this contour kit.



ABOUT THE BRAND:

Freedom is the sister brand of Makeup Revolution which is owned by Tam Beauty. It is a pro range of makeup but very inexpensive

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

PRO Contour Kit. Contour like a PRO, with our kits.
Containing the perfect 2 shades to contour and sculpt the face. Available in 3 shade formats.






PRICE: Rs. 795







 INGREDIENTS:




PACKAGING: 

The packaging is so sleek and classy. Its very compact and totally sturdy. The size is small. It has a good quality mirror as well.
It contains a highlighter and a contour powder.








PIGMENTATION & CONSISTENCY:

The pigmentation is to die for. Its very pigmented and its finely milt as well. Both the shades are super pigmented and very smooth and blend-able.

SHADES:


This kit contains a contour powder and a highlighting shade. Both of them are super matte and doesn't have a hint of shimmer. The highlighing shade is too dark for me so I use it to slightly contour my nose or even use it as an eyeshadow. The contour shade has slight red undertones so you can even use it as a bronzer and also as an eyeshadow.




 MY THOUGHTS ON THE PRODUCT:


This is a beautiful contour kit and very matte. The highlighting shade is too dark for my skintone to use it as an highlighter and its matte so people who have two shades darker than my skintone can use to set the under-eyes. The contour shade is very pretty and its super blend-able. It is powdery and has fallout but that also means that it is blend-able and trust me it is easily blends.

I just wished it came with a brush as well then it would have been a travel friendly product. But since this is a Pro range so it justifies why it does not come with its own applicator as makeup artists uses their own brushes instead of applicators. The contour shade has a smaller pan which I wished it was of the bigger pan.


PROS:

  • Always on discount
  • Contains a contour & a highlighting shade
  • Very pigmented
  • Easily blends
  • Contains a good quality mirror
  • Compact Packaging

CONS:

  • Contains Parabens
  • Highlighting shade is darker for my skin-tone

RATINGS: 4/5

Miss Claire Born To Glow Illuminator Makeup Base (05 Shiny Beige) REVIEW | NYX BORN TO GLOW DUPE?| Best Illuminator Under Rs.500?| Where to Buy?

Hello everyone, hope you all are doing well! This post is HIGHLY requested, so I'm here sitting down, writing my experience about this illuminator by Miss Claire.




 PRICE: Rs.250-400 (I got mine for Rs.390)



INGREDIENTS:

HOW TO USE:
Wear alone or pair with makeup to instantly highlight and enhance wherever it is applied

PACKAGING:
The packaging is good. It is color coordinated with the illuminator and very easy to apply as well. This packaging is very travel friendly.




CONSISTENCY:
This highlighter has a very unique consistency. It is very moose-y in texture but at the same time it is light weight.

 SHADE:
Miss Claire Born To Glow Illuminator is available in six shades

I bought the shade 'Shiny Beige'. Its a silver highlighter with peachy pink undertone. It looks very pretty on fair Indian skin tone. It'll also look great on medium skin tones as it has peachy pink undertones.





MY REVIEW ON THIS PRODUCT:

To be honest, at first usage I did not like it a bit. It was chunky and very glittery. I was very dissapointed BUT when I tried it again and played with it more, I got to know the technique.
Always use it only as a highlighter and NOT as a base. It contains shimmers so it is very beautiful when worn alone as a highlighter to bring out your features.

This highlighter is available in 6 different shades which caters to different skin-tones. It is very build-able and has good pigmentation. You can achieve a blinding highlighter look and also 'highlight from within' kinda look. It all depends on your blending abilities.

Since this highlighter contains shimmers so you really need to use a pore filling primer because if you don't use a pore filling primer then the highlighter may look a bit patchy. Overall, we can't ask for a liquid highlighter like ABH for this price. So i'm very satisfied with is product at the price it is offered.

How I use it: I directly dot it on my cheek bones and then blend it with my fingers and use a beauty blender to take away extra chunky shimmers. In this way it gives a very beautiful sheen to your face.

I've heard and read a lot of negative reviews 'bout this particular illuminator but since now I know the right technique to apply it, I'm in love with this baby.

IS IT LONG LASTING? 
Yes it is. It lasted for about 5-6 hours WITHOUT any touch ups.

DO I RECOMMEND IT?
Yes absolutely.

THINGS I DON'T LIKE:
Don't use it as a base because it doesn't look good. It contains shimmers so it appears like you have sparkles everywhere. Secondly I don't like that it contains parabens.

PROS:

  • Color Coordinated Packaging
  • Affordable
  • Build-able from sheer to full coverage
  • Beautiful Shade
  • Good pigmentation
  • Available in different shades
  • Lasts for 5-6 hours without touch-ups

CONS:
  • Never use it as a base
  • Contains Parabens

RATINGS: 4/5

Affordable Matte Lipstick in India | 7Heaven's Photogenic Matte Lipstick in 302 Kisses | REVIEW + WHERE TO BUY?

Affordability has different meaning to different persons. In my opinion, anything under Rs.500 is affordable. So when I stumbled upon this lipstick from 7Heaven, I was elated! Imagine the joy of a college student when she finds a 1) 'matte' lipstick under Rs.500 and 2) a trending color. I jumped at the opportunity, literally grabbed the lipstick (lol) since it was the only piece available. So, no more blabbering, lets just start with my review!

7Heaven's Photogenic Matte Lipstick (302 Kisses)


PRICE: Rs.200

Where To Buy? Amazon | Flipkart


INGREDIENTS:



PACKAGING: The lipstick comes in a black case with white detailing. The packaging is very sleek and travel-friendly. This lipstick is color coordinated and the best part is that the color coordinated cap is removable and contains the color as well.






TEXTURE: This lipstick is super matte! Since it is super matte it doesn't glide onto your lips easily, you have to apply pressure. But after applying this lipstick, its very comfortable on the lips though.

Tip: Prep your lips prior applying this (or any matte) lipstick. Use a lip balm and the after 3-5 mins remove the excess balm. In this way, your lipstick won't dry out your lips.


COLOR & SWATCH: This lipstick is a mauve color with maroon undertones. Its very 'in trend' color and would suit fair-tan medium skin tones. Its an everyday lip shade!




MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE PRODUCT:

First of all, its a very pretty color. Its super matte so don't expect to glide onto your lips easily, you have to apply pressure. The color is totally build-able. On one swipe, the bullet might not deposit enough color due to pressure differences, but after two swipes, it shows its true color.

Now coming to the duration, it stays for about 4-5 hours straight and then stars fading but leaves behind a stain. If you eat full course meal then this lipstick totally fades away. 

If we look through the price point, then it does pretty good job. I totally recommend it. Its a pretty shade at a pretty price which does not hurt our purses ;)

PROS:
  • Affordable
  • Travel Friendly
  • Sleek design
  • Pretty shade
  • lasts long
  • Super matte
CONS:
  • Availability can be a difficulty
RATINGS: 4/5
