Maybelline FIT ME Concealer Review




Hello! Today I'll be reviewing the new Maybelline FIT ME concealer. I've heard quite a lot about it from many youtubers, so i tried to give it a go. In India, it was released quite later than other countries, but anyway, it is the best at its price.

What The Product Claims:

FLAWLESS THAT LETS THE REAL YOU COME THROUGH
BEYOND MATCHING: FRESH, BREATHABLE, NATURAL 

Why You'll Love It

It's makeup that doesn’t mess with you.
• No oils, no waxes, no nonsense
• Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be…fresh, breathing, natural
• Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin's natural highs and lows to show through
• Non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested, ophthalmologist-tested, fragrance-free

For Best Results

Dot concealer onto imperfections or under eyes. Pat with finger to blend.

Price: Rs. 500 for 6.8 ml (but I got it for Rs.490) 

REVIEW ON THE PRODUCT:







I got so excited when this concealer was released in India. So when i finally purchased it, I was in love with this one. It is an amazing concealer.

It is available in three shades: 10 light leger, 20 Sand Sable, 25 Medium Moyen. The shade I selected is 20 Sand Sable. Since i don't have very prominent dark circles, so i use this concealer on the centres of my face to highlight my face. 

The consistency is very light, it feels like i'm not wearing any makeup on my face. The coverage is medium to full coverage. We can built up the coverage my applying a layer more, it won't look patchy if u use a damp cosmetic sponge or a dome shape sponge or a beauty blender. If you try to use your fingers, the result won't be as flawless as the one's given by the sponge. 

The staying power is quite good. It stays full on 5 hours without creasing, after the 5th hour it starts creasing. But note that you set it with powder soon after applying the concealer or hence it will crease very soon. 

What i don't like about this product is the shade selection part. Dear Maybelline, only three shades doesn not fit the entire Indian skin tones, please do release more shades for the dark skined beauties.

Affordable 10 piece Kabuki Makeup Brush Set Available In India

Hello everybody, Today I'm bringing to you a set of 10 Kabuki Makeup brushes.





What is a Kabuki Brush?

kabuki brush (sometimes called mushroom brush) is a makeup brush with a short stem and dense bristles. The brush head is most often rounded, though it can be also flat. Traditionally, the bristles are made of natural materials like animal hair (e.g., goat or horse hair), but most brushes available now on the market have synthetic bristles. (source: wikipedia)

Affordable 10 piece Kabuki Makeup Brush Set Available In India

Few days back I was just browsing some sites for affordable makeup brushes and THEN I FOUND THIS BEAUTY. It was a set of 10 makeup brushes and all of them were Kabuki brushes. The price caught my attention 'coz normally kabuki brushes are quite pricey. I got them for Rs.899.

PRICE: Rs.899

My Review:

The set includes 10 brushes. 5 base makeup brushes and 5 multipurpose brushes. The brushes have very soft bristles. I've washed them about 3 to 4 times but the bristles never came out, they are quite intact. 
The length of Short handle brush : 5 pcs 6.1"/15.5cm Including these styles: Taper type Face Brush / Round Face Brush / Round Angled Face Brush / Flat Foundation Face Brush / Flat Angled Face Brush

The length of Long handle brush :5 pcs 6.9"/17.5cm Including these styles: Small Taper Eye Brush / Small Round Eye Brush / Small Flat Eye Brush / Small Flat Angled Eye Brush/ Small Angled Eye Brush
 It also comes with a PU leather bag which is helpful for storing them. 


The brushes cost me Rs.899, it means that each brush costs approximately Rs.90, which is quite a bargain, because at Rs.90, we don't find Kabuki brushes. I bought them from amazon and they are available in different websites like snapdeal, flipkart, etc.

PROS

  • Affordable
  • High quality
  • Travel friendly
  • Multipurpose usage

CONS 

  • Didn't find one :p
