Hey my birdies,
Hope you all are doing great. Its been long I have written any post and hence thought to review post which was on my to-do list since months. This time I am reviewing “Pearly Beige” sculpting eyeshadow from brand Orosa. Last year I got my hands on this eyeshadow stick pencil when I was in India and I have used it quite often. When I swatched this pencil at the counter I really liked the shade which made me to purchase this eyeshadow stick. So, to know more about my experience with this product, let’s get started
Price- Rs. 795 for 1.4g
Shelf life- 36 months
Feels like velvet, wears like a feather and stays tenderly on your eyes for hours. Define, shade, line, highlight or smoke up your eyes, with this easy to use, ultra-modern, long-lasting eye shadow stick. Dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested. No animal ingredients.
My Experience with Chambor Orosa Sculpting Eye Shadow in shade 101-
This beauty comes in red color rectangular size box which fits the pencil best. The packaging of product is beautiful also they have mentioned every details of the product on the box with rose gold font which make it look stunning. The beautiful eyeshadow stick body comes in a beige color which resembles the color inside and also it makes the work easy to choose your shade from the lot. It is constructed in a plastic body with the name mentioned in golden font. The one thing I liked about this stick is its twisting technique which gives us the complete control of the product. It is sturdy and handy, making it travel friendly and occupies less space in my vanity box.
The texture of the eyeshadow is very creamy and glides easily on my eyelids. It blends very evenly and effortlessly, but I need to be very quick while blending the color because its hard once the color sets. It has never creased until n unless you harshly rub your eyes. The lasting power is just lovely. It lasts for approx. 5 hours on my eyes without any primer underneath. The shade “Pearly Beige” is a gorgeous shimmery beige shade. The shimmers are very finely milled into the formula giving a nice illuminating finish. It adds a beautiful sheen to the eye shadow. This is a pretty color for both casual and festive looks. This muted gold shade brightens up the face instantly. The shade is pretty and perfect for highlighting purposes. Also we can use this as an eyeshadow base for smokey eyes. It requires some 2-3 swipes for the color to build up properly. It can be easily taken off using a good eye makeup remover, otherwise it will be difficult to remove the shimmer.
Overall, I really liked this eyeshadow crayon. Its very easy to apply and blend. It can be used as an eyeshadow base or as a highlighter or even as a complete eyeshadow. It requires 2-3 swipe to get that intense color otherewise in one swipe the color does not payoff. This eyeshadow crayon is good for beginners or the next level and entirely depends on the creativity of an individual how they make use of it. There are other option as well available in the market which you can opt for.
- Muted gold shade
- Ideal color for both casual and festive looks
- Glides on smoothly and evenly
- Does not crease
- Good staying power
- Easily removable
- Lovely packaging.
- Also work as highlighter.
- Shimmers are not chunky.
- Easily buildable.
- Blends easily.
- Nice texture.
- Lasts long.
- Ophthalmologically tested.
- Travel friendly
- Average color payoff
- One swipe is not sufficient
- Hard to blend once the eyeshadow set

Hola my cute birdies,
Its been long I haven’t posted anything about this brand which I am reviewing today. This time I bought “Lakme Absolute Shine Line Black Eyeliner”. Today my post is about Lakme Absolute Shine Line Black Eyeliner Review. By now you must be aware that I’m a huge eyeliner freak. I love trying different shades and different brands so that it gives me more idea about the brand and formula they use. As I am more comfortable using brush eyeliner than a tip or pencil eyeliner so I mostly own brush eyeliner as I can draw the wing as per my choice. So, let’s get started with this product-
Price- Rs. 400 /- for 4.5ml
Get the best of both worlds with intense colour as well as this season’s most sought after metallic shades in one confident stroke and give your eyes the perfect shine definition. With an easy glide formula and applicator, there’s no reason to not love it.
Key Features & Benefits:
- Get rich intense color in one stroke that stays true for hours. create smoldering eyes with bold shades that redefine the look of this liquid eyeliner.
- Long-lasting polymer.
- Water-based formula.
- Gives you a glossy texture
- Suitable for daily use
- Ensures you make a statement with minimal use
- The sleek, round cap of the bottle gives you a comfortable grip making it convenient to apply
Aqua, Triethanolamine, Xanthan Gum
How to Use-
Step 1: Steady your dominant hand on a table.
Step 2: Open the cap and remove the excess product from the application brush.
Step 3: Draw your eyelid taut and draw a line across your upper lid.
Step 4: Thicken the line as per your preference.
My Experience with Lakme Absolute Shine Line Black Eyeliner –
The product is packed in black cardboard rectangular box with brand name and details mentioned on it. When you open the box to see the product you will be amazed by seeing its sleek black color rectangular case which look amazing and classy. The cap has shiny metallic coating and the base has mate coat with brand name mentioned on it which make it looks very pretty. The tube is so constructed that it is not going to dry out the liner even when you use it very rarely. Also, it is light weighted and easy to carry around so it qualifies for travelling. This range has 4 colors but I opted for black as it goes with every outfit for daily use.
When you open the cap you wont smell any fragrance. It has a sleek pipe with brush attached make its user friendly as it gives you space to draw the eyeliner easily. The handle of the brush has the right amount of length; not too long neither too short providing ease of application. The consistency of product is nice, it’s neither runny nor thick; it’s perfect for drawing. Coming towards the application, you will be surprised to see that eyeliner dries quickly plus the brush is so soft and even that helps you to create the winged eyeliner. The bristles are packed in such a manner that they provide a clean line. The pigmentation is great its dark grey black and does not have any shine or shimmer added to it. If you are black lover than this is the product you need for day to day use. It has the perfect pointed tip for applying the thinnest line across the eyes and can be widened as per need and look. The best thing I liked about the brush is, it draws line evenly and for beginners you can try your hand on this as you will be damn happy to see your even and flawless eyeliner. Inspite of having oily eyelid the eyeliner was intact and did not spread making it look shabby until and unless you roughly smudge your eyes.
Coming to removal side of eyeliner, you can easily remove the eyeliner in a swipe without any struggle. Isn’t that a great news? The staying power is okay and not that great as after 5-6 hours it starts fading. I have used this liner in hot and humid climate also and it has happily crossed it test.
The only disappoint I have with this eyeliner is that product dries quickly in bottle while applying the eyeliner and this you will start noticing after 4-5 application of eyeliner. The misleading information they have mentioned as shine eyeliner but it has no shine. I wish they rectify the information.
Overall, this liner had an appeal, the whole packaging, the black matte finish, the brush and the price too. I mainly picked it up for the brush and the packaging. It dries faster. You might have seen many black liners like this, but the whole deal is great and tempting, I don’t know why, especially the brush. Again, the long handle to the brush is very easy for newcomers to use too, in fact, much better than the Lakme Insta Liner’s short, stubby, brush handle. I would highly recommend the Lakme Absolute Shine Liquid Eye Liner in Black as the shade, texture, finish and longevity are perfect for daily wear or even for any events. Go ahead girls.. 😉
- Good durability
- Dries quickly
- Packaging is great
- Doesn’t flake and smudge proof
- Matte finish
- The brush is smooth and friendly
- Light weight and easy to carry packaging.
- Efficient applicator with fine bristles.
- Shade is deep charcoal grey-black.
- Nicely pigmented.
- Lasts for around 6hrs.
- Can be removed easily with a wipes or cleanser
- Name is misleading as the liner says its ‘shine line’ whereas it is matte.
- Not competently water proof.

This palette comes in black color cardboard packaging as usual the MAC style of packaging with details mentioned on it. When you takeout the product from the box you can see the palette comes in plastic case of black color with transparent lid on it with MAC written on top. The backside of palette mentions all details of shade no. and color on it which make it easy to refer. As said, the palette contains 4 concealer and 2 corrector shades. The palette is handy, sleek and easy to carry which makes it travel friendly as it also occupies less space in bag.
The texture is very creamy, thick, smooth and the best part is, it blends like a pro which is amazing. The concealer is highly pigmented and covers all the fine lines and dark circle nicely. It also has yellow tint to it, it goes perfectly on my skin as I have a yellow golden complexion. So let go in more details and let me describe shades with you all-

NC42- Concealer (Neutral Cool)

I used corrector and then apply shade NC40 and NW40 (mix) to get my perfect shade. This palette is so pigmented that little goes long way. Also, it covers my blemishes, darkcircle and darkspot perfectly plus the consistency is so thick that it covers fine lines as well. I set my concealer with pressed powder so that it does not crease. Once the concealer is set it does not fade for 7-8 hours, also you need good makeup remover to remove it. I was highly impressed by its long staying power even after event it did not crease. The best way of blending this concealer is with hand as it blend like pro and the warmth of hand gives it more power to spread smoothly on eyes. After use I did not notice any breakout on my skin plus it did not dry out my eye area. I use shade NW43 as my contouring shade so I don’t have to carry another product for the same 😉 I am so happy with quality and quantity provided by MAC. It worth every money spend on it. It’s a highly recommended palette. Girls invest in this palette you will keep on thanking me always.
Overall, I liked this palette very much. Though it is expensive but the coverage it gives is amazing. The texture is creamy and spreads evenly and smoothly on skin plus its highly pigmented. It covers all your dark spots, blemishes and darkcircle giving a beautiful natural finish. Also, you can blend this product with fingers or beauty bleander. This palette is highly recommended by me as little goes long way and it justifies every money spent on it.

Hey folks 🙂
Wish you a very Happy New Year!
I hope you all are doing fine. Today I will be reviewing body lotion from brand Enchanteur. I have picked Charming moisture silk lotion from supermarket. So, let’s get started with the review.
Price- Aed. 16 /- for 250ml
Product description & Ingredients-
My Experience with Enchanteur Body Lotion Moisture silk Charming –
The product comes in off white bottle with yellow rose printed on it also details of body lotion mentioned on top of the bottle and all details like how to use, ingredients etc is mentioned behind the bottle. This bottle has a flip cap which helps the product comes out easily. The packaging is very elegant and sturdy, but it does not make it travel friendly product ‘coz of its flip cap.
When you open the cap you will be welcomed by nice floral fragrance. The color of product is white and consistency of product is good. The texture of product feels like watery and is very light weighted on skin. It is non-greasy and keeps body hydrated for shorter period. I did not notice any irritation or itchiness on my skin. When you apply the product on body the fragrance start hurting your nose if you have sensitive nose like me. The lotion gets absorb quickly into the skin. Also, the cream stays for shorter time say 4-5 hour then you need to reapply the lotion again. The fragrance stays for 1-2 hour and then vanish. It did not work on skin as after 4-5-hour skin remains the same, dry. If you are looking this lotion for winter, then you will be disappointed as it will not work on skin. This lotion can work slightly in summer as its non-greasy and it will not make your skin feel drier. Well, I can’t use this lotion in office as the scent is so strong that it will grab all the attention of your colleagues.
Overall, I did not like the product as its highly scented plus it has very little staying power. It is more of perfume than body lotion as it did not make my skin healthy. The lotion is light weighted, non-greasy, non-sticky and absorbs in skin quickly plus it has a strong fragrance in it. There’s no problem to give a try as it is reasonably priced. I would rather like to invest in Nivea body lotion as it will make my skin look healthier and will nourish it. For me it’s a big no and not recommended.
Note– My all reviews depend on the experience I had with the products. All the product work different on every skin type and tone, so you birdies are always free to try product out even if I don’t recommend it. It’s a personal choice.

Aren’t we all crave for that perfect shade of foundation which will give us more of natural look rather making us look cakey?
The correct shade of foundation makes your skin look health and good. When I was in India, I always dreamed of MAC products so when I got a chance and shifted to Dubai I thought to explore this brand. So I visited their store to explore some of their products and was amazed to see so many shades in foundation covering every skin color and undertone. Isn’t that great and in India I always used lakme which had 5-6 shades. More shades made me more confused and so I took the help of attendant to find my shade. While going through the shades, I realized that you can’t put every woman in range of 5-6 shades of foundation as even one shade darker or lighter creates a huge difference on skin. So, to know more about this foundation and my experience with this keep reading ahead. I hope you enjoy this tour 😉
Price- Aed. 170/- for 30ml

My Experience with MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation (SPF 15) Shade NC 40 –
This product is packed in a black color cardboard box with brand names and details mentioned on it with white color which made the packaging look good. The product comes in a cylindrical glass shape bottle resembling foundation shade on it with black silky texture cap on top of it. The details of product are embossed on bottle with golden color which shines in the light. The Black cap fits properly on the bottle avoiding all kind of leakage and spills also the bottle is very sturdy and thick. Overall, packaging of product is very classy. Due to its black velvety cap there are high chances that the foundation can leave mark on it which can make it appear messy. When you swrill the cap to open it you can see that they have given pea sized hole to bottle for product to come out but I wished they would have provided pump dispenser which would have made my task easy. It really takes efforts to take the product out from bottle as I literally have to dab the bottle on my hand which sometimes hurt me. They do sell the pump dispenser separately but didn’t felt like spending extra money on that. Also, this being a glass bottle, its little risky to carry while traveling.
The texture of product is creamy, silky, smooth and velvety. The consistency is little thick compared to other product in market also it has matte finish with SPF 15 which protect your skin from direct and harmful sunlight. The product is highly pigmented and small size of amount is enough for entire face; little products goes a long way, trust me ladies. 🙂
The application is very smooth and spread evenly on skin giving a flawless base look which I liked the most. The shade is highly pigmented and just one swipe of application is enough for entire face as it gives medium to full coverage; also it covers 80% of imperfection and blemishes of face. I did not feel like rebuilding the coverage until and unless I have to attain a function where heavy coverage is required. I am so much fan of this range as it has yellow tone in foundation which really matches warm, yellow or golden undertone girls like me. I have used this foundation with brush as well as sponge and it must say that I am highly impressed by its quality. If you apply this foundation with sponge you will get more of daily wear look as well as it blends the foundation nicely on skin. It quickly settles down in to matte so need to be little quick while blending the foundation. Also you will be surprised to see that it locks all the oil from skin giving that matte finish specially on T zone where foundation does not stay much. After settling down, it does not oxidize my skin or make me appear cakey or give me that uneven look which made me fan of this product. You can set foundation with compact powder or setting powder or loose powder whichever you like and comfortable with it as it performs well with every other product you put on top of it.
I usually apply this foundation for special occasion and it stayed 9-10 hours on my face even after dance performance plus if you apply primer then longevity will definitely increase. It slightly get transfer on phone may be due to mobile heat otherwise it is a star baby. I am insanely impressed with its oil controlling formula. If you are staying in place which is too hot and humid like my Dubai then blindly go with this. This is my saver, trust me ladies.
Overall, this is the great value for money foundation. My shade is NC 40 which has yellow undertone and ladies with yellow or golden undertone like me is a great match to our skin. The blending is smooth, even and covers most of the blemishes and imperfections from skin. I am insanely impressed with its matte finish as it absorb all the oil from face giving a flawless look without any shine on face. I have a sensitive combination skin and did not notice any breakout after the usage. If you are not that makeup freak and use makeup only while going out then ladies invest in this foundation as little go more and it performs well when photographed. Highly recommended!
- A wide range of shades available for all kind of undertones and complexion.
- It has SPF 15 in it which protects from harmful rays.
- The coverage is buildable from medium to heavy.
- Blends smoothly and evenly giving a flawless finish.
- Ultimate matte finish.
- Amazing staying power 9-10 hrs
- Highly impressed by its oil controlling formula
- Gives natural look and not make me appear cakey or oxidize my skin.
- Looks good in photographs- with and without flash
- Covers imperfections and even outs the skin.
- Small amount is enough for entire face
- Quality and texture of product is amazing
- Suitable for combination to sensitive skin
- Did not notice any breakout
- Pricey (I am ready to pay for the base it is giving to me)
- Wished they would have given a pump with the foundation.
- Risky for travelling (I will handle with care… lolzzz)
Will I buy this product again?
Definitely yes. One of my favorites.

Lip definer as the name say that this pencil is used to define lips as well as they hold your lipstick for longer time. I have purchased colorbar lip definer pencil when I have visited India last November. I liked two shades from same range which was berry rose and rosy red. I loved this shade when I swatched them at the store as this colors were nicely pigmented. So, without wasting any further time lets get started with the review tour-
Price- Rs. 625/- for 1.45g
Durability- 4 years (they have even mentioned on their packaging box)
A matte lip liner that weightlessly defines your lips for a long-lasting, waterproof finish. Enriched with anti-aging Vitamins C and E, Definer Lip Liner moisturizes your lips, glides on smoothly, and adheres to your lip color – so your lips appear instantly fuller and your lipstick stays with you forever.
Formulated in Germany.
- A waterproof and smudge-proof lip liner that makes lip color ultra-long-lasting.
- Delivers a rich color and an intense matte finish.
- Enriched with Vitamins E and C to nourish and strengthen lips while providing a boost of anti-aging properties.
- Formulated without preservatives and mineral oils.
- Dermatologically tested.
How to use-
Outline your lips in steady, even strokes, carefully following its natural contours. Fill in with your favorite Colorbar lipstick, lip crème, or lip stain. Pro-tip: To make your lips appear plumper and prevent your lip color from smudging onto your face, line your lips with a shade of lip liner that closely matches your lip stick.
My Experience with Colorbar Lip Definer in shade Rosy Red and Berry Rose-
This lip liners are packed in silver cardboard long rectangular box with details mentioned on it like ingredients, their claims, name of the product, expiry date written with black color makes its impressive. On the top of the packaging they have mentioned the color sticker with name which resembles color inside. Pencil comes in sleek and long with color coded at the bottom which resembles the liner color inside plus the silver things embossed on black body of pencil make the liner looks pretty as well as sexy. The best part of liner is the cap which has pencil sharpener on the top so, as and when you require you can point your liner also you don’t have to carry extra sharpener. As the cap comes off easily so this lip liner is not travel friendly but if you wish to carry then pack it in plastic pouch so that it does not ruin or spoil your other stuff.
The texture of the color is matte as well as creamy which glides smoothly on lips. The formula is good and does not break while defining the lips which I really liked it. Pigmentation wise the lip definer is nice but not highly pigmented so if you want a nice amount of pigmentation you need to glide the pencil twice thrice on your lips. In case if your lips are dry apply some lip balm before so, that it does not hurt your lips. The shade which I have choose for me is Rosy red and Berry Rose.
Rosy Red- It’s a nice warm orangish red shade which is suitable for any skin tone or color. Though I didn’t see any rosy or rose hue in the shade.
Berry Rose- It’s a bright fuchsia pink color perfect for winters and for everyday use. Again, suitable for all skin tone. Though the name say berry, but I didn’t fount any hue of berry in this shade
When I applied lip liner on my lips I found that the application was smooth, creamy and glided easily on lips inspite having matte finish plus its very light weighted on lips. I did not notice any dryness or flakes after application of lip liner. The staying power of this pencil is less not more than 4- 5 hours for me (honestly) also it depends on whether you eat or drank something or not in between and then slowly start fading. The liner fades evenly leaving a tint of color behind it which don’t look bad until and unless you have a cracked lip of lines which can make it look little weird. Though they claim its smudge proof and waterproof but in reality, the liner get smudged and is slightly transferable on things. This shade are nice replacement for high end lip liners so can always choose them if you have a money constraint.
Overall, I liked the colorbar lip definer as they are perfect for Indian skin tone. The color I have chosen Rosy red and Berry rose are perfect for any women with different undertones or color. Application is smooth, creamy and matte on lips plus it glides easily on lips filling all the lines and flakes. Compared to the high-end lip liner in market I think this brand is perfect replacement. You can enjoy lip liners with some shimmery or clear gloss on top of it which most of the time I prefer to do. The price they have charged for this lip liner is justified for the quality they have given plus a sharpener attached to it is an add on and value for money. Hence, Recommended.
- Nice and sturdy packaging
- Smooth, creamy and matte texture
- Nicely pigmented
- Does not dry out lips
- Glides smoothly on lips
- Light weighted on lips
- Does not pull lips during application
- Suitable for every skin tone
- Inbuilt Sharpener makes your task easy on a go
- Loved orangish red and fuchsia pink shade
- Pricey but for me it’s okay
- Staying power is less
- Do transfer on things as well as get smudged.
Will I buy this product again?

Hey my dolls,
How you all are doing? I am trying my best to get back on track with my blogging stuff as its been long I was little busy. So, I thought to review my favourite red lipstick from my favourite brand MAC in shade Everyday Dive which is a Mineralize rich lipstick. I have bought this lipstick on a go from Airport and when I swatched it on my hand I was like “Baby you are coming with me” 😉. In the era of Mattes, I went ahead with this red shiny lipstick as the colour was damn tempting; perfect for romantic dinners, date nights, events, party, weddings etc. Thing I liked about this lipstick is it has multi mineral complex that instantly nourishes lips. So, let’s start the tour with this sexy.
Price- approx. Aed. 100/- for 3.6g (I have purchased it last year)
A MAC multi mineral moist complex that instantly nourishes lips with a maximum moisture in a lightweight, non-sticky formula. Larger Bullet applies bright, long lasting color in a single stroke. Medium Shine Finish, buildable coverage. Magnetic closure.
Key claims & benefits-
- Features MAC multi-mineral complex
- Instantly nourishing
- Provides instant and long-term hydration
- Smoothes lips
- Blurs lips lines
- Provides instant softness and suppleness
- Reduces lip flaking
- Provides instant luminosity
- Provides a shiny finish
- Long wearing 6 hours.
My Experience with MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in shade Everyday Day-
This product comes in black colour rectangular cardboard box with minute details mentioned on it like ingredients, name of the lipstick, lipstick shade, etc. When I have opened the box, I loved the packaging of product as the top cap is of matte black color and bottom is of shiny/ glossy black color which looks pretty cool. The bullet is chubbier and sturdy with MAC printed in white on bottom. It really looks classy when holded in hand. They have used magnetic closure technology which pulls the cap automatically towards it while closing and even you can feel the magnetic thing when you open the cap. Inspite of using magnetic technology this product is not travel friendly as many time the cap comes off and lipstick is exposed, so if you are carrying this beauty with you take major care. When you swirl the bottom, product comes out as a show stopper with its stunning warm red color.
Texture of product is very creamy, super soft, silky and melts when glided on lips with rich pigmentation. Consistency of product application is excellent as it spread out evenly on lips effortlessly. The color “Red” is warm and rich in pigmentation with a medium sheen touch. It is a beautiful warm red color and is perfect for Indian skin tone or say warm tone ladies.
When applied 1st coat it gave me opaque coverage with a nice shiny finish. During application you can feel the moisturizing formula on lips and trust me it kept my lips hydrated for 4-5 hours. As I loved the pigmentation in 1st coat, I continued applying 2nd coat and my gosh I was like stunned with its rich color, it made me feel royal. Perfect red lips. I was dancing seeing the color as if have achieved sumthing great. This lipstick covers/ blurrs every fine lines and flakes of lips giving nice and smooth finished lips.
Let me tell you here that lipstick is transferable when you eat, drink or even kiss but nice part is, it leaves a red tinted lips behind which does not make your lips appear ugly, it just gives an illusion of tinted lips. I actually felt this lipstick heavy on my lips when I swiped 2nd coat on lips (may be this thing can vary from person to person). I am glad that their claim is right of lipstick staying power is of 6 hours as honestly it stays for 4 hours and then slowly starts fading. Also, the fun fact is, this lipstick contains 77 moisturiser in it which helps to keep your lips moisturised and hydrated (Counted it’s ingredient). Though the lipstick being priced on higher end but it worth every penny. I wish they would have not spended money on magnetic closure technology as it didn’t work and cap comes off easily… sigh!
Overall, it’s one of my favourite lipstick as it totally accompanies me in events, party’s, dinner dates, romantic nightout and add that luminosity to lips. Oh this shade can add spark in your relationship if you are out with your partner, as it makes your lips appear kissable (Keep this tip in mind 😉) hahaha. Though the staying power is an issue as you have to touch up your lips after every 4-5 hours plus the bullet is thick and wide so one has to be really careful while applying the lipstick. Otherwise, I am really impressed with this shade. Recommended!!
- They stand on what it claims
- Staying power is 4-5 hours after that it start fading
- Lipstick is moisturising, and light weighted till 1st coat
- Glides smoothly on lips
- Blurs out lines and flakes on lips
- Gives sensuous, luminous and shiny / glossy finish
- Perfect for events, parties, occasion, dinner date.
- It leaves a tinted lips behind
- Gives opaque coverage in a single swipe
- Transferable while eating and drinking.
- Tube is thick and wide need to be carefully applied
- Availability is an Issue
Will I buy this product again?
Yes, if I didn’t found another red competing to this lipstick 😉

This beauty comes in white tough cardboard box packaging with the product details mentioned on it. When removed the product from the box, I was amazed to see the crystal clear glass bottle with transparent liquid inside it and a black pump on top of it. I liked the pump as it is in the form of push-down button also the bottle is very sturdy which qualifies it for travelling provided you handle with care. This magic oil is a boon for makeup as it pro long its life. It was just a coincidence that I met this product in store and I am so happy as I bought it. No regrets at all.
The texture of product is watery and has no fragrance to it. The consistency of product is good basically it is not runny like water. Though the bottle look tiny but will go long way. The best thing I liked about this product is, it has mentioned Hypoallergenic on its bottle which means it is suitable to every sensitive skin people. When I have placed a drop on my skin and rubbed it, I felt it to be very silky and smooth plus within a min it was absorbed by my skin leaving no traces. I am not sure whether it contains silicone or not as nothing is mentioned on ingredient list. I liked that the oil was non greasy as well as non sticky. I revived some of my eyeliner gel pot by adding few drops of it which has helped me to increase the longevity of the product. Also, I tested adding few drops of this in mascara and got the new transformed mascara back to use which I was supposed to throw out as it was dried up.
Let me share the different ways of how I use this product in makeup-
- Transforming my eye shadow to eyeliners by mixing it with this oil.
- Adding 2 drops of this with my foundation so that it will keep my face moisturized as well as it will protect my foundation falling grey or achy. Also, this can turn your thick foundation to creamy one.
- Just a drop of this oil can revive your eyeliner or gel liner pot as well as brow pomade.
- You can revive your dry mascara or brow mascara with this oil if you are planning to throw them out.
- You can use this oil with any eye shadow to enhance it pigmentation as well as it helps to stay product longer on eyes without creasing. You can create different look with the help of this oil as no need to purchase different metallic eyeliners.
- This oil can be applied on lips before applying lipstick as it will stay for a more longer time.
- Mix this oil with any shimmery eye shadow to turn into a metallic one which can be used as a beautiful eyeliner or lipstick. I love the way it gives the sheer shine to the product created.
- Mix oil with powder pigments to turn into a creamy metallic eye shadow or eyeliner
- It goes well with powdered highlighter if you wish to increase the intensity of the product.
- Can also be used on eyelid as a base for smooth application of the product.
Overall, liked this product very much as it is Hypoallergenic and paraben free also little goes long way. The best part is, it can transform any product the way you wish them to perform like converting into metallic eyeliner, increasing the intensity of eye shadows by improving their pigmentation level, etc plus increases the durability of the product. This is a multi-tasking product and every makeup AF should have this in their vanity box. It justifies each and every money spent on this little magic oil.

- Transform powder product in to creamy or liquid one
- Revive old product by adding to its durability with this few drop of oil

Oriflame! Is there anyone who haven’t heard the name of this brand?
I know most of the ladies might have heard the name of oriflame brand which has lots of fam in India and they have distributorship across 60+ countries, origin being in Sweden. I remember 4 years back I have done lots of shopping from oriflame for my wedding. They have lots of varieties of product like skincare, nutritional care, makeup, and perfumes. I have used some of their products and they were quite promising as well as reasonable. Its been a week I was thinking whether to write on oriflame products or not, as its an online chain and wont get in market easily except agent or you order online. So, I am full excited to share my experience had with “oriflame Milk and Honey Sugar Scrub” with you all.

My Experience with Oriflame Milk and Honey Sugar Scrub Review-
This beauty comes in golden color tube with a flip cap on top with the entire detailed mentioned on the tube which make it easy to refer. The packaging is very pretty as they have designed honey comb on it and feel royal when holded in hand. The tube is quite huge, sturdy and tough with a tight flip cap, qualifying it for a travel friendly product.
When you open the cap you will be welcomed by a nice sweet floral fragnance which make you enjoy your me-time in bathtub 😉. The consistency of product is good as its neither runny nor thick. The texture of product is gel based with finely milled sugar granules in it plus its were soft on hand when massaged. As this being body scrub you really need a good amount of the product. When you massage the product on body it turns into a good lather leaving your skin behind smooth, soft and velvety. As the granuels are not harsh on body you can take your time to massage it nicely on body. Once you wash off the scrub you can immediately see the difference as how effectively the scrub has removed dead skins making skin appear look fresh. I didn’t even felt like applying moisturiser as my skin was so nourished. Also while using this body scrub I didn’t see any irritation or rashes on my sensitive skin.
Only the disappointing thing is body scrub turn into huge foam/lather which make it’s granuels lost in it and then work just like a normal soap plus it contains high amount of chemical which I wont prefer.
Overall, I liked the product very much and its value for money. It provides good quantity with a nice price and does not burn your pocket. Well, you can find this oriflame product either on their website or through their agent as it is not that easily available in the market.
- Packaging is pretty and feels royal when holded

- Leaves skin smooth velvety and soft
- Effectively exfoliate and remove dead skin

- Need a very nice amount for entire body

- Not easily available in market.
Will I buy this product again?
No, As it contains lot of chemical

Who doesn’t want soft, hydrated and supple skin and I really crave for such skin especially when you have entered your 30’s. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser, a product that hydrates and works on sensitive skin too which I was really looking in a product. These days I am mostly using face cleanser for deep cleansing of my skin rather than going for cream based face wash or foam based face wash. So, I’ve been testing out this product for a few weeks to see if it measures up to the claims and then I realised that I have completed half of the bottle and its high time to put my thoughts for this products. So let’s get started before the bottle gets over.

My Experience with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser Review-
The product comes in a blue sturdy transparent plastic bottle with a white pump dispenser on it also the details of the products are mentioned on the bottle which makes it easy to go through. Overall, bottle looks nice and classy though I didn’t think it’s a travel friendly because of its pump dispenser but product can be transferred to travel friendly bottle. I am fan of products which provides pump dispenser as they are good in hygiene as well as you have complete control on the product. Being a blue transparent bottle it let me know about the left over product so that I can plan my next purchase 😉
When you pump out the product, you will be greeted with amazing floral fragrance which will calm your senses. All you need is small coin sized product in your palm and you are done with entire face. It has gel like texture which is transparent in color and has proper consistency which hold the product in palm so that you can massage product on face. This cleanser is very gentle on face as it’s a soap free cleanser expect slight foam when you apply it on face. Take a minute to massage the cleanser on your face as well as on your neck so that it can work deeply on skin impurities, excess oil or any dirt particles and then wash off face with normal water. You will immediately notice skin is deeply purified, fresh, and hydrated. You can witness that the cleanser has deeply worked on skin removing the excess oil, dirt or any impurities on my face. Also, once you dab your skin with fresh towel you will feel the tightening effect near to your jaw line, cheeks and being a combination skin type I felt it also dried my face for few sec and then its back to normal leaving it velvety, silky, soft and supple.
Its been almost a month and continuously usage of product helped my skin to maintain its elasticity. I didn’t notice any breakout on my face throughout the usage and after that. Let me tell you here that continuous usage of product made me feel that it starts building a layer on face for which sometimes I use another face wash to bring my skin back to reality. I have also used this cleanser after removing my makeup and it has worked brilliantly on that except on my eye makeup. If I apply any khol pencil or mascara, then it’s a real struggle for this cleanser to remove it from core which is still fine as it helps me to remove entire makeup from my face deeply. Though The cleanser moisturise my face but after wash I like applying serum and moisturiser to my face to give that extra boost to my skin. This cleanser didn’t work on my dark spots, blemishes and pigmentation also please don’t expect that it will make your skin appear fair as its deeply cleanses your skin. I felt this cleanser is good to use daily and great for removing light makeup from your face plus it will definitely improve your skin texture and elasticity.
Overall, I really liked this product as its within budget and deeply cleanse the skin. After first wash the result is noticeable and can witness prurified, hydrated and moisturised skin. Though for me after frequent use, started feeling that this cleanser is drying up my face for few second so I always apply serum and moisturizer after any face wash. This cleanser is also good to remove makeup from bit giving you fresh, dirt free, oil free and impurities free skin. I didn’t notice any breakout on my skin but also didnt see any difference in my dark spots and pigmentation. So, ladies with oily skin type to combination to sensitive skin can grab this product as it will surely show its magic on your face. It’s a green flag from me for this product.
