What’s In My April 2015 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 3rd April 2015

Hello everyone!

Fab Bags have started coming out really early in the month now, which is great! I got mine today and I cannot wait to share the whole review with you! This is what it looks like :

F1

I love this month’s bag. It is zebra printed, spacious and will be perfect to carry around as a makeup bag in your purse.

The theme this month was “Nine to 9”

F2

Here’s what I got :

1. Malavara Shower Gel And Body Lotion Duo – Lime Vetiver

F5

The lotion is great to throw in your handbag for on-the-go moisture touch-ups but I’m a little iffy of the lime scent. The shower gel is also great for travelling and I love the little bottles that can be reused! Over the months, I have received A LOT of lotions and moisturisers from Fab Bag and I just wish they would focus more on makeup rather than lime scented bath stuff! Both of them are deluxe sample sized.

2. City Color Blush Quad – Coral

F3

F4

This blush is my favourite thing from the whole bunch! It comes out a gorgeous pink on the cheeks with very little sheen so it is perfect for the daytime. It makes me look like I just came back from a run in the sun and looks extremely natural. It is a full sized product.

3. Chambor Body Mist – Mystique Magnolia

F7

This smells EXACTLY like Magnolia flowers. Personally, I am not a fan of the night flower scent so it is a bit too reminiscent of that for me. If you like that sort of smell, then this will be a great mist for you. Also, this deluxe sample sized spray is perfect to throw in your tiny clutches for fragrance touch ups!

4. Denman Volumizing Hair Brush

F8

I love that this hair brush is anti-static. I am not sure if it volumizes, if at all. But, it’s a decent size and does the job without tugging or pulling.

Here is what I got overall :

F9

This month’s Fab Bag was well worth the price you pay for one bag. You get two full sized products and three deluxe sample sized products. The lime scented shower gel and lotion are not something too exciting for me. I continue to hope they’ll tilt a little more towards makeup rather than moisturisers and bath stuff. The blush was a pleasant surprise and I’m happy with the hair brush too. The fragrance mist would’ve been perfect had I been a fan of the Magnolia scent but I’m not.

Hello everyone!

I have always been a fan of mysterious winged eyes and this is just a step up from the regular wings that I do everyday. I paired it with bold matte red lips. Of course, you can opt for a nude which will look great too but I wanted to go all out! 😀

Product Empties + Mini Reviews!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 31st August 2014

Hello everyone!

Today I’ll be showing you all the products I love and have used up recently.

1. Chambor Silver Shadow Compact in the shade “RR2 Rose Pale”

E1

This is an amazing product and has been in my makeup bag for about 4 years now. I always have a back up of this. It has a little coverage, keeps me matte for a long time, doesn’t look cakey and is great for touch ups. The shade is a perfect match for me and it comes with a refill. What more could I want?

2. Lakme Radiance Compact in the shade “Pearl”

Almost every college girl has used this at some point since this is easily accessible and inexpensive. I remember going through a ton of these during my high school / college days! This has been in my kit for a long time. I do not use this as much now since I’ve moved on to better powders but I finally finished it! I probably will not repurchase this but it is a great little handy product for touch ups for people on a budget.

3. Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express Mascara

E3

I have been a fan of this mascara for almost 2 years now. I am yet to find a mascara that lengthens my lashes better than this does. I use a combination of two mascaras whenever I apply makeup, a lengthening one and a volumizing one. I do have fairly long lashes to begin with but this gives me incredible length with two coats, doesn’t clump and lasts throughout the day! I am currently using a new one and I will continue to repurchase this until I find a magical mascara that gives me unbelievable lashes! 😛

4. Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara

This is the volumizing mascara in my routine. It separates each lash while coating it with blackness and gives the look of extremely voluminous lashes. Maybelline mascaras tend to be a bit more wet than the rest but that works well for me as I like my mascaras to be on the wetter side. The combination of these two mascaras gives me the best possible results yet and I’ve received a lot of compliments on my lashes when I’m wearing these two together. I am using a new one of this too.

5. Maybelline The Hyper Curl Volume Express Mascara

On its own, this mascara is great for those natural days when you don’t want extreme volume or length but just want your face to look more awake and your lashes to appear more black. I hardly have those days when I wake up thinking I want natural lashes today, but this works well when I’m layering it with other ones. I am not sure if I’ll repurchase this.

6. The Body Shop Skin Primer Matte It

E2

I do not have large pores but this makes my skin appear slightly smoother and helps my foundation go on more evenly. It also increases the lasting power of my makeup and instantly mattifies the skin upon application. I am currently using a back up of this.

THE BODY SHOP COMPLETE STRAWBERRY RANGE REVIEW 

7. Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50

Lotus Herbals’ sunscreens are great for oily skin. This almost works like a primer and feels fresh and matte. This is my favorite sunscreen and I always have a backup of this. I haven’t found a better sunscreen that works so well for oily skin.

8. The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer

I love this product! I use it to spot treat a blemish or redness. It even works well as a primer and refines pores. I can’t say if it helps minimize the size of pores because I do not have large pores but I do love using it as a skincare product and sometimes under makeup. I am using a back up of this and I will repurchase it once it finishes.

9. Chambor Powder Matte Lipstick in the shade “175 Sugar Pink”

E5

Finishing a lipstick is a big deal for me as I have a ton of them! This is a lovely peachy pink nude shade that is perfect for everyday. I may not repurchase this anytime soon since I have so many similar shades in my collection that I want to go through first. Read my review on CHAMBOR POWDER MATTE LIPSTICKS

10. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in the shade “Ivory”

This is probably the fourth one that I have finished. It works really well to hide under eye darkness. I also use it to highlight certain areas of my face. It is handy for touch ups and you only need a small amount. I love that it has medium coverage which makes it buildable. It is a great inexpensive dupe for YSL Touche Eclat. I already have one that I am presently using and I will definitely repurchase it.

11. Maybelline The Colossal Kajal

E4

This is a makeup staple for many girls out there and happens to be mine too. It is very black, easy to apply and stays on for a fair amount of time. I love that this is great value for money. ( Tip – If you find that your kajal smudges throughout the day, smudge it a little beforehand with an ear bud/pencil brush/smudge brush as soon as you apply it. Then set it with a matte black powder eye shadow. Your kajal should stay in place the entire day! )

12. Faces Eye Pencil in the shade “Metal Brown”

I love using brown eyeliner pencil around the eyes to define the shape and then use black in the inner rims of my eyes and on top very close to the lashline. I find that brown is not harsh at all and this one has little shimmer particles. It happens to be very creamy and doesn’t tug on the eyes. A few seconds after application, it sets and then stays for a long time so if you want to smudge it, you have to work very quickly.. I have gone through atleast 5-6 of these and I will repurchase this soon once I finish other liners.

13. Colorbar iGlide Eye Pencil in the shade “Cocobar”

This is an amazing eye pencil. It glides on smoothly without tugging the slightest bit on the delicate eyelid area. The dark brown color is exactly what I wanted. It stays on for a long time without disappearing and is completely matte. I will definitely repurchase this once I finish some of my other brown liners. In fact, I would like to try more shades of this.

Haul Series Part 4 – Sleek and Chambor Makeup!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 18th November 2013

Hello everyone!

Today, I am going to be sharing with you a little Sleek haul and some Chambor products that I got recently.

Sleek is a wonderful makeup brand! It is based in UK but you can get it online at http://www.sleekmakeup.com. Shipping charges apply!

Here is what I got from Sleek :

Image

1. Sleek I-Divine Eye Shadow Palette in “Oh So Special”

Image

Sleek’s eye shadows are beautifully pigmented. This is a very easy and girly palette. Each shade is beautifully pigmented!

Image

2. Sleek I-Divine Eye Shadow Palette in “Ultra Mattes V2 Darks”

Image

It is so hard to find great matte eye shadows at drugstore rates. Sleek does the job, and perfectly! I love each and every shade in the palette and you just need a little tap of the brush to achieve great pigmentation!

Each palette contains a black shade which is one of the most pigmented black eye shadows ever! It can be used for creating smoky eyes or lining them.

3. Sleek Blush By 3 Palette in “Pink Sprint”

Image

This palette is a wonderful collection of pink blushes. There is a plum shade that will go well with most fall/winter lipstick shades. A hot pink that gives that Barbie cheeks look and a dusty pink that is great for everyday. I have already reviewed the Lace Palette.

You can also read my review on Sleek’s Pout Paints.

Here is what I got from Chambor :

Image

1. Chambor Silver Shadow Compact in “RR2 Rose Pale” – Rs. 895/-

Image

This is my all time favorite compact. Plus, you also get a refill along with it so yay! 😀

It keeps me matte for much longer than any other compact and also gives some amount of coverage. It can hide minor imperfections and makes the skin look flawless over foundation.

2. Chambor Powder Matte Lipstick in “175 Sugar Pink” – Rs. 595/-

Image

This is the perfect nude for me! I was ecstatic when I found this! It is a coral nude that brightens my face up and does not wash me out!

The powder matte collection is great for people who prefer matte lipsticks.

This is going to be my everyday color.

3. Chambor Powder Matte Lipstick in “176 Pink Flamingo” – Rs. 595/-

Image

This is a Hot Pink! I am thinking it would look perfect with the hot pink blush in the Sleek palette above! 😛

4. Chambor Powder Matte Lipstick in “177 Crimson Red” – Rs. 595/-

Image

This is a very deep rich oxblood. These type of reds are perfect for the winter time. I prefer bold lip colors to be matte. They’re easier to maintain.

READ MY REVIEW ON THESE LIPSTICKS HERE

4. Chambor Velvette Touch Lip Liner Pencil in “RD 21” – Rs. 395/-

Image

This is a simple red lip pencil that would go with most red lipsticks.

5. Chambor Jewels Metallic Liquid Eyeliner – Free With Purchase

Image

This is a very pigmented black waterproof eyeliner with gold glitter. It would be great for night time looks and parties!

So this is it for my haul.

Please let me know if you want to see detailed reviews on any product! :-)

Amazing Inexpensive Products! <3

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 6th September 2013

Hello everyone, today I will be talking about my favorite drugstore products that are inexpensive and perform just as well and even better than high end products. These products are readily available and easy on the pocket! Now who doesn’t love that?

You might want to sit down comfortably with a coffee because this is going to be a long post since I have a lot to share! 🙂

FACE :

1. Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse

d15

This is my favorite foundation for sheer coverage and it looks really natural. Plus it costs only Rs. 599/-

Read Full Review HERE

2. Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matte Foundation

d16

This is also one of my favorites. It looks very natural and this shade matches me exactly! It costs Rs. 799/-

Read Full Review HERE

I really only use sheer foundations since I do not have problematic skin. It is  just really oily. So, I don’t like to cover it up with full coverage foundation. When I do ever want to use full coverage foundation, it is pretty much always Revlon Colorstay for Combination/Oily skin.

3. Maybelline Clear Glow Compact

d9

This compact has some amount of coverage and it instantly brightens up the skin. At only Rs. 175/-, this product is a steal. It does not have that powder matte effect and it looks natural on the skin.

4. Maybelline Clear Glow BB Stick

d10

This is a very easy product to use. Just swipe it on your face and blend. It blends beautifully, looks natural and provides sheer coverage. Very oily people can use this in the winters but in summers it makes the face shiny. However, this is great for normal skinned people and even dry skin over moisturizer. Available only in two shades though, for Rs. 250/-

4. Lakme Absolute Moonlit Highlighter

d14

I love the bronzer side of this! It gives that beautiful sun kissed look and its great for warming up the whole face slightly with a natural looking glow. The highlighter however has some chunky glitter that I am not too fond of on my cheeks. If you can move past that, the base is pinkish and makes the skin look beautiful and healthy. It looks ethereal in the inner corners of the eyes and both the shades can be used as eye shadow. Retails for Rs. 600/-

There are blushes in the Lakme Absolute range too that are really good!

EYES :

1. Garnier Anti Dark Circle Eye Roll-On

d6

I don’t like to use heavy duty concealers everyday. This shade is perfect for my under eye area and brightens them up. But, it only gives sheer to medium coverage. If you have really stubborn dark circles, I would recommend the Colorbar Pot Concealer which is worth Rs. 500/- and comes in multiple shades with pink and yellow undertones.

This however, comes in only two shades. “Light” and “Dark”. The light shade luckily is perfect to liven up my face. It retails for Rs. 199/-

2. Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil

d11

This is a beautiful eye pencil that glides on smoothly and doesn’t tug on the delicate eye area. It comes in multiples shades like blue, green, purple, brown, black, grey etc and I own 3-4 shades. Price Rs. 249/- to 349/-. The only drawback is that you have to sharpen it!

3. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

d4

This glides on smoothly too and doesn’t tug on the waterline. It doesn’t need more than 3 swipes in the waterline to show full pigmentation and its very black! All this for only Rs. 200/- 😀

4. Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Shadows

d7

These are extremely long wearing, waterproof cream eye shadows that are really easy to apply. Just swipe them all over the lid with your fingers and you’re done! They’re great for a quick look and stay put all day, even in the water. They come in a variety of shades and are sold for Rs. 350/- each.

5. Maybelline The Falsies and The Colossal Mascaras

d8

These two are my favorite mascaras and I have never found any other mascara  that works as well as they do! I like to use them together. Falsies for length and Colossal for volume. They give me voluminous lashes that actually look like I am wearing falsies! LOVE! ❤

Falsies – Rs. 425/-

Colossal – Rs. 330/-

I prefer the waterproof versions because they hold a curl better. But, they are a pain to remove! I am willing to bear the hassle of removing them if they make my lashes look amazing! 😛

6. Elle 18 Eye Sparklers Shadow Sticks

d13

These are intensely pigmented shadow sticks that are smooth and easy to work with. They can be used as a base for your shadows or on their own and they come in 5 shades. They don’t last as well as the color tattoos but for Rs. 85/- a pop, you cannot really go wrong!

7. Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Quads

d5

This is my favorite quad. I like neutral shadows and this makes everything so easy. You can achieve a light natural look and also a smokey look with this quad. They are intensely pigmented and easy to blend. The first shade is a beautiful highlight shade and the third shade is a beautiful rose gold! 🙂

They come in quads of different colors too. Available for Rs. 450/-

Read Full Review HERE

8. Inglot Eye Shaodows

d17

They are very pigmented, stay on all day, easy to blend and come in a plethora of shades! A pan costs Rs. 300/- for one eye shadow and a pot will cost around Rs. 450/-

9. Maybelline Gel Eyeliner

d3

This works just as well as the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner and is a hell of a lot cheaper! Intensely black, can be used as a liner or as a dark base all over the lid. It is waterproof and will not budge throughout the day! Price Rs. 500/-

LIPS :

1. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains

d12

They are my go to lip products! In fact I have used them so much that the lettering has come off and they have lost their pointy shape!

They stain the lips, stay all day and are comfortable to wear. The darker shades are more staining than the lighter ones. The glossiness will wear off in a while but the stain stays. I keep applying my regular lip balm throughout the day if I feel the need for moisture!

They retail for Rs. 600/- each.

2. Colorbar Lipsticks

d18

1. Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick in “C 40 Citrine”. This is a great wearable reddish orange.

2. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in “60 OR Obsessed Orange”.  This is a straight up neon orange.

3. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in “63 P Shy Cherry”. This is a berry toned deep pink.

4. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in “61P Thrilling Pink”. This is a mauvy nudey pink.

The Soft Touch lipsticks from Colorbar are really easy to wear and last for 3-4 hours. Priced at Rs. 325/-

The Velvet Matte lipsticks are slightly drying but still comfortable to wear. They work well over a lip balm too and last for 3-4 hours. Priced at Rs. 250/-

All these come in multiple shades! There is a shade for everyone! 🙂

3. Maybelline Lipsticks

d19

1. Maybelline Superstay Lipstick in “Non Stop Red”. This is very beautiful pinkish red. – Rs. 525/-

2. Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick in “BR41 Windsor Rose”. This is a wearable sheer red. – Rs. 250/-

3. Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick in “CB41 Coral Pink”. This is a true coral pink shade. – Rs. 250/-

4. Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in “840 Coral Lustre”. This is an orange with shimmer. – Rs. 399/-

All of these lipsticks are great and all of them have a separate formula.

-The Superstay lipsticks are extremely long wearing but slightly drying.

-The Moisture Extreme range is almost as moisturizing as a lip balm and yet the lipsticks are beautifully pigmented. They are the most comfortable to wear but do not wear for a long time.

-The regular Colorsensational range has a watery shine and semi matte texture and they are also comfortable to wear.

4. Elle 18 Lipsticks

d20

1. Elle 18 Lipstick in “42 Coral Romance”. This is a beautiful nude coral.

2. Elle 18 Lipstick in “27 Rosy Blush”. This is bright red orange.

They have a balm in the center and wear for about 2-3 hours. Available in several shades and at Rs. 100/- each, you cannot really complain!

NAILS :

1. Lakme Nail Polishes

d1

The absolute range dries really fast and makes life quick and easy. But it may chip off on the 2nd day. Still worth it due to the crazy dry time! – Rs. 199/-

The Color Crush Range will dry in a few minutes but it will stay on longer. – Rs. 150/-

2. Revlon and L’Oreal Nail Polishes 

d2

Revlon Top Speed nail polishes dry really quickly too and this silver shade is fully pigmented in just one swipe! Rs. – 210/-

L’Oreal nail polishes dry in normal time but these glitter ones dry quickly, I love them, the packaging reminds me of YSL and they are also available in plenty of shades! – Rs. 235/-

Read Full Review HERE

HAIR :

1. Matrix Biolage Deep Smoothing Serum

d22

Works just as well as a high end serum. smells great, reduces frizz, makes combing easier and makes the hair shinier.

Rs. 255/- for 100ml

2. Dove Elixir

d21

I love the packaging! It smells delightful and does good things to the hair like, add shine, reduce frizz and cure dryness in 30 minutes! It can also be used sparingly as a serum. Retails only for Rs. 185/-

So that is it for my drugstore gems!

Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matte Foundation Review!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 13th August 2013

What Chambor claims :

Discover the sheer delight of perfection.

With Chambor’s Sheer Delight Ultra Matt Foundation, it is time to bid oily and uneven skin goodbye. Here is a foundation that gives you the ‘no-makeup’ feeling. It comes with a matt finish that helps you stay shine free all day.

Image

Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matte Foundation

  • It is Oil Free
  • Long-wearing formula will keep you looking beautiful for 10 hours without clogging your skin pores
  • Gives a ‘no makeup applied’ feeling
  • It minimizes skin imperfections
  • Finish is Velvety, Natural, & gives an Even toned result
  • Its break-through technology helps to prevent the visibility of creases and lines into the skin
  • An aerated Lightweight jelly formula as smooth as Velvet blends easily into the natural skin colour.
  • Flexible silicone polymers that prevent the setting of creases and lines into the skin and leaves you with a velvety soft complexion.
  • Matte finish – No Shine
Image

Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matte Foundation

My Thoughts :

I bought this foundation because of its very enticing name. Anything that says “Matte” instantly catches my attention.

I am in the shade 01 Natural which is the lightest shade in the range and it is yellow based. This is the EXACT shade of my skin tone. There are only 3 shades to choose from.

I like the packaging. It is a navy blue squeeze tube that helps control the amount of product to be dispensed.

Image

Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matte Foundation

But, the problem is that the product gathers at the mouth of the tube which I hate so I have to clean it every time I use it. And, there is no way to put any excess product back that you may have squeezed out.

Image

Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matte Foundation

The consistency is thick like a cream but not like a heavy moisturizing cream. It feels whipped. This is extremely easy to blend due to the consistency. The best application will be achieved through fingers as the warmth of the fingers will ensure better blending into the skin.

It does not move around on the face during the day and stays put for a good 6-8 hours on me ( with powder and blotting and touch ups throughout the day ). Since I have extremely oily skin, I always set my foundation with a powder.

This provides a soft natural matte finish to the skin. It will cling to dry patches and not blend as beautifully if you haven’t moisturized prior to application . If you have combination skin, you would want to moisturize beforehand. Even oily skin should used a light moisturizer before applying this as it glides better on moisturized skin.

Image

Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matte Foundation

This keeps me matte for a good 2 hours which is impressive for how oily my skin is. It provides sheer coverage which is great for everyday as it doesn’t look heavy at all. Bear in my mind that this is good if you want to even out your skin tone but it will not hide under eye darkness, blemishes, dark spots and other imperfections. You will need a concealer to help with all those issues. I like to use a concealer under my eyes when I am using this.

Image

Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matte Foundation

Here is how it looks WITH FLASH :

Image

Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matte Foundation

The GOOD :

1. Travel friendly packaging with a screw lid.

2. Keeps me matte for about 2 hours. ( I am extremely oily )

3. Provides natural looking matte sheer coverage.

4. Lasts well in the heat and humidity. ( with blotting and touch ups )

5. Doesn’t break me out.

6. Blends really well.

The COULD BE BETTER :

1. Only 3 shades to choose from.

2. Cannot be layered to achieve more coverage as it will look cakey then.

3. Opaque packaging so you cannot tell how much product is left.

4. Slightly oxidizes on me due to my natural oils.

Price Rs. 745.

Buy it at any shop that sells Chambor products like NewU, Shoppers Stop or online here :
