Nyx Matte Lipstick Review – MLS17 “Sweet Pink”

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 20th April 2015

Hello everyone!

As promised in my previous review of the Nyx Matte Lipstick in “Indie Flick”, this post is going to be a review of another Nyx lipstick that I picked up.

Nyx3

Pink lips are certainly a girly favourite and I already own more than my fair share! They’re extremely fun and are perfect for the spring/summer time!

What NYX Says :

NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put with a non-drying matte finish.

Ingredients :

Bees Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla)wax, Ceresin, Microcrystalline Wax, Polyethylene, Octyldodeanol, Polyisobutene, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Oleyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Palmitate, Isostearyl Isostearate, Bis-Digylceryl Polyacyladipade-2, Tocopheryl Acetate, B.H.A, and Fragrance. MAY CONTAIN: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxide Red (CI 77491), Iron Oxide Yellow (CI 77492), Iron Oxide Black (CI 77499), D&C Red No.6 (CI 15850), D&C Red No.7 (CI 15850), D&C Red No.27 Aluminum Lake (CI 45410), FD&C Yellow No.5 Aluminum Lake (CI 19140), FD&C Blue No.1 Aluminum Lake (CI 42090), or D&C Red No.36 (CI 12085).

Price : Rs. 570/- from Sephora (India). However, they retail for only $6.00 in the United States.

Packaging :

Nyx7

They come in a black matte packaging which is sturdy and sophisticated. It shuts with a satisfying click and I love how you can see the actual colour of the lipstick without having to open it. It really helps to be able to see the colour of each lipstick when you have more than one in your collection.

Nyx2

My Thoughts :

The pigmentation is ON POINT! If you have any issues with pigmented or darkened lips, these will cover them perfectly. They have incredible colour pay-off in a single swipe and can also be layered to achieve superior coverage and bang-on colour. What you see in the tube is exactly what you get. I always prefer bold lipsticks to be matte because they do not bleed out of the lip line.

The application is super smooth without any tugging and they do not feel like a drying matte lipstick either. However, you will need exfoliated and well-prepared lips in order to rock these as they will highlight and grab onto any dry patch.

Nyx8

They last for a good 5-6 hours leaving a soft stain of colour behind and are completely water-proof but not entirely transfer-proof since they don’t have an extremely dry matte formula. Fret not, they will not smear around on your face though!

“Sweet Pink” is a beautiful, bold and summer appropriate mauve pink shade. It looks bright and catchy in person and looks especially stunning with winged eyes. It will look great on almost every single skin tone and it has a slightly more wearable quality than a neon shade due to the mauve under-tone.

Nyx9

The Good :

1. Extremely Pigmented

2. Silky and Non-Drying Matte Texture

3. Comfortable To Wear

4. Does Not Smear or Smudge

5. Travel Friendly

6. Colour Visible On Packaging

7. Inexpensive

8. Very Slight but Non-Offensive Smell

The Could Be Better :

1. Not As Easily Available in India.

2. Will Highlight Any Dry Patch On The Lips

L5

Overall :

I am very happy with these lipsticks and would recommend everyone to try a few shades from this range. They come in a whopping 33 shades so there is a colour for everyone! I will definitely look into some other colours to add to my stash.

I hope you enjoyed reading!

My Go To Smokey Eyes And Bright Lips

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 22nd March 2015

Hello everyone!

I’m the kind of person who enjoys full-on makeup! Thankfully, I have been blessed with clear skin so I have nothing to hide but I absolutely love artfully done and well applied makeup. Think smokey eyes + bright lips all together! It may not be everyone’s cup of tea since people like to go a bit muted on the lip when doing a heavy eye. I say, bring it on!

This is my go-to smokey eye makeup. Its bronze, its gold, its brown, its gorgeous! I can do this look anywhere with anything that I am wearing and be confident that my makeup looks fantastic. When I don’t know what I want to do or when I have to glam up in a hurry, this is the look I always gravitate towards.

Here are the pictures :

What’s In My March 2015 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 13th March 2015

Hello everyone!

My Fab Bag arrived on Wednesday and it was a bag full of surprises! Some great and some average. It was a little pink pouch with black text printed on it. Not particularly my favorite bag ever but, better than the Valentine’s one for sure!

This is what it looks like :

F1

The theme this month was “Makeup For Difference”

F2

So, let’s see what I got :

1. Palladio Herbal Lipstick – Rosey Plum

F6

Fab Bag has sent me three frosty lipsticks now and I’m really not a glittery lipstick lover. The shade is very rosey oxblood that would look great on slightly mature women with wheatish skin tone. I prefer my lips to be bright, bold and matte. So, this is definitely going to be gifted to an aunt.

F7

2. Soultree Kajal – Grey Glow

F5

This is a soft natural kohl that would be perfect for creating smokey looks since it can be easily be smudged. I wouldn’t count on the lasting power of it though. Grey kohls tend to make me look weak and tired so I usually skip on them and opt for my trusty blacks and browns but it is always great to have smudge-able soft kajals in various colours.

3. Inveda BB Cream – Fair

F3

This is a sweet little handy BB cream to throw in your overnight bag. It gives sheer coverage with a natural finish and would be great to use on days when you have no time for a full face of makeup and you just want to look fresh and dewy.

4. Sebastian Volupt Spray

F4

I have always wanted to try Sebastian styling products but never got around to it. I have used a shampoo and conditioner from their professional range and really liked those so it was a pleasant surprise to receive something from this brand. Also, I have fine hair so a volumising spray is always welcome!

5. Fashionography Bracelet – With Love

F8

I was looking for a dainty arrow bracelet and Fab Bag read my mind! This is a beautiful, delicate bracelet with a little heart charm that is perfect to wear during the day as well as night.

Here is what I got overall :

F9

I am satisfied with the products in this month’s bag as the combined value well exceeds the amount you pay for a single bag. The lipstick is going to an aunt and the kohl is something I would use only rarely. Other than those, I’m excited to try the Sebastian spray and the BB cream. The bracelet was also a very cute add-on.

What’s In My February 2015 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 8th March 2015

Hello everyone,

I know, I know I’m late with this post! My February Fab Bag came well after Valentine’s Day because I had renewed my subscription mid February. And now, the March one is about to come and I hope I receive that in time to do my next post.

Anyway, the bag was a little black heart this time :

F1

Mine was a little dirty and bent out of shape and I much prefer the pouch style bags they send out normally!

The theme for this month was of course Valentine’s Day :

F2

Here are the products :

1. Sally Hansen Nail Lacquer

F4

I’m excited to wear this polish. It is a soft brown nude shade that is right up my alley as nudes are my favorite shades to wear on my nails.

2. LA Splash Lip Couture – Forbidden

F7

I was so excited about this product but it is really hard to work with! I’m glad they didn’t send me a red one though because I’ve already received three red lipsticks from Fab Bag. It dries completely matte and stays on like paint. But, if you purse your lips together when it is wet, it becomes blochy and is almost impossible to fix! Other than that, the color is to die for!

3. Kama Mridul Soap Free Cleanser & Brightening Ayurvedic Night Cream

F3

I am a little meh about this product. As always, I don’t like receiving skin care in my bag unless it’s a clay mask! But, I’ll try it and see how it fares.

4. Livon Moroccan Silk Serum

F5

I’m usually dicey about Livon serums and I use my trusty Loreal Professional ones but surprisingly, I’m very happy with this one. it detangles wet hair amazingly well and smoothens frizzy hair too. This is a good quantity for a sample size.

Here is what I received overall :

F6

This month’s Fab Bag was average. Nothing too bad, nothing too special. The Livon serum was a nice little add-on and the lipstick is absolutely budge proof. I’m also happy with the simple polish and I’ll have to try the skin care to see how it fares.

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! :-)
