(Part of PR kit)

So recently, I mailed allgoodscents.com if they would like to collaborate with me and they replied :D So i got sent a full sized perfume of Lolette by AllGoodScents. I bought the sample size in my scentbox and now have the 50ml product. Thank You AllGoodScents.

Revel in a sensual and dainty aura as you celebrate with this floral bouquet. Enjoy the mischievous sparkle that will follow you, leaving many yearning for more.
Wear the perfume and let the experience linger through the evening.
CONCENTRATION: Eau de Parfum

MY REVIEW ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

PACKAGING: The perfume is placed in a cardboard box with colourful detailing. The body of the perfume is rectangular in shape and is made of good quality translucent dark blue glass. The main attraction of the perfume bottle is its cap which is made of amethyst colour glass.





NOTES OF THE PERFUME:

TOP NOTES: "The initial whiff, the first few seconds of the perfume. The top notes of a fragrance are generally the lightest of all the notes. They are recognised immediately upon application of the perfume." 
I don't quite like the top notes of the perfume. It smells really strong. It stays on for 5 mins after which it evaporates.
HEART NOTES: "The heart notes, make an appearance once the top notes evaporate. A perfume's heart is often a smooth combination of floral or fruit tones."
I love love loveee the heart notes of this perfume. Its very addicting and floral and really flirty. It stays for 6-8 hours.
BASE NOTES: "The base notes are the final fragrance notes that appear once the top & heart notes have evaporated. These often, rich notes linger on the skin for hours after the heart notes have dissipated."
The base notes of this perfume has a very calming effect.


LONGEVITY: This perfume is very very long lasting. I sprayed this perfume at 10.00 am in the morning and then I reached home at 7 in the evening, the scent was full on intact. 


PROS: 

  • Not tested on Animals
  • Beautiful Packaging
  • Heart & Base notes smells heavenly 
  • Long Lasting

CONS:

  • Top Note is too strong
  • Expensive

OVERALL RATING: 4 out of 5 stars

(UPDATED : I've listed Phthalates as a con. But Phthalates is mandatory in India to denature the Ethyl alcohol used in perfumes. This renders the alcohol non-drinkable. The amount used is low and regulated) 




EOTD : Blue Smokey Eye

7/23/2016 12:01:00 pm 4 Comments
Hello! Today i thought of doing an EOTD on my blog. This is my first EOTD, i hope that you all like this. Feel free to comment below if you love this, or want to correct any of my mistakes. I hope this will be a good one.

I've created a blue smokey eye, here are the products that I used:

  • Eye Shadow Base: Maybelline FIT ME concealer, paired with Maybelline White SuperFresh Compact.
  • First I applied Blue Eye Shadow Crayon by Elle 18 (discontinued) on the lips and used my fingers to smudge it. I again applied it to build up the intensity.
  • I set the blue crayon stick with a blue eyeshadow from my Meis Pallete.
  • Then I used a light brown shade from an eyeshadow pallete of the brand called "Meis" on my crease to act as the transition color and blended the edges of the blue eyeshadow.
  • I applied a black eye shadow from the same pallete on the outer V of my eye and blended it.
  • I lined my lash line with lakme eyeconic kajal and smudged it as well.
  • Then by taking a mix of the blue and the light brown shade on a pointy domw shadped brush, i smoked out my waterline.
  • Lastly I applied L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara on my lashes.
After the eye makeup I filled in my brows and applied some concealer and i'm done.

Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream - 11 REVIEW (Nyx SMLC Dupe)

7/19/2016 12:16:00 pm 0 Comments

Soft Matte Lip Creams are to die for! So when an Indian drugstore brand created them at half the price of the original (Nyx SMLC), then all women were raving about this...So here I present to you all Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

Its not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before. It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.

PRICE: Rs.150-250

INGREDIENTS:


 MY REVIEW ON THE PRODUCT:

PACKAGING: It comes in a plastic cylindrical container with a black cap. The colour of the container matches the shade so you can buy it accordingly.

CONSISTENCY & TEXTURE: It is very buttery in texture. The consistency is quite thick yet it feels light on the lips. It feels like you haven't applied anything on your lips.

SHADE & APPLICATOR: I bought the shade 11. It is a bright pink shade and very pigmented. Totally wearable but not an 'everyday shade'. It wood look great on fair-medium skin tones. 

The applicator is a typical dome shaped applicator, it is small and can apply the lip cream on your lips perfectly.




SWATCHES: 


FINAL THOUGHTS: 

This lip cream is the best at its price. It stays about 5-6 hours and doesn't feel feel heavy on the lips. Its very light weight and the texture is to die for. But the only con is its availability. You can buy it from the Instagram stores or from amazon and habbana. The price is very tricky because it depends on the sellers. I recommend it to everyone out there. Grab it when you find one.

PROS: 

  • Pocket friendly
  • Exact dupe of Nyx SMLC
  • Long lasting
  • Lightweight
  • Very pigmented
  • Great applicator

CONS:

  • Availability

RATINGS: 4.9/5

Kiss Beauty 5-Color Contour REVIEW

7/12/2016 07:04:00 pm 7 Comments
Hello guys, today i'll reviewing a contour kit by Kiss Beauty.



ABOUT THE BRAND: 

Kiss Beauty is a Chinese cosmetics brand which makes affordable makeup products.


ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

  • Added the natural Jojoba Oil and oxidation resistant vitamin E to make smooth and perfect fit texture; apply layer after layer to cover pore, pock dots and black eye circle, also can bring you a wonderful moisturising effect for skin.


INGREDIENTS:



PRICE: Rs.349 with 5 year shell life.

You can buy similar products here:

MY REVIEW ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

PACKAGING: The contour kit is placed in a cardboard box with all the details written over it. The kit is contains 5 contour and highlight shades placed in five different compartments placed one above the another. The first compartment contains a mirror as well, and the last compartment contains a sponge applicator. We can distinguish the products because the compartments are coloured in similar pattern as the contour and highlight product. The packaging is travel friendly. It saves a lot of space.






TEXTURE: The highlight & contour products are very soft and bendable. It glides onto your skin and one doesn't need to break her hand in case of blending :p

SHADES: We get five shades and a sponge.

  • Shade 1: This is the lightest shade in the kit. It can be used as a highlighting shade.

  • Shade 2: This shade has a pink hint to it. So it can be used as a brightener under the eyes

  • Shade 3: This shade has yellow undertones to it and can be used to cover any blemishes or as a concealer under the eyes or even be used has a highlighting concealer if it is lighter than your skintone.

  • Shade 4: This is the contour shade. This is one or two shades darker than my skin tone so it can be used as a soft contour shade. This shade can also be used as a bronzer.

  • Shade 5: This has yellow undertones to it and is totally 'my skin' colour. It can be used as a concealer under the eyes or to cover up blemishes.

  • Last Compartment: The last compartment contains a sponge which is quite useful.
SWATCHES: 
Before Blending

After Blending


FINAL THOUGHTS: 
The contour kit is very handy and travel friendly. The shades blends easily and settles to a matte finish, so setting them with a powder is optional. They are very well pigmented as well. It creases crazily under the eyes so I'd not recommend you all to use this to cover up dark circles. Without setting the shades, it lasts about 2 hours; and with setting powder, it lasts up-to 4 hours. 

PROS:

  • Affordable
  • Smells Sweet
  • Travel Friendly
  • Very Blendable
  • Contains a sponge and a mirror

CONS:

  • Contains only 1 contour shade :(
  • Doesn't stay for long hours.
  • Less Availablity
RATINGS: 3.5 stars out of 5
I would recommend this kit to all beginners at contouring who wants an affordable contour kit.

P.S. I Bought this from Amazon.in
