FOTD : Fresh everyday makeup

 

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a lovely Diwali! Today I’m sharing the makeup I wore today, its a fresh everyday look which is super quick to create. I evened out my skin using the Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh foundation (my shade is 4N1 Shell Beige). This is a new launch and its a sheer foundation with a really nice, healthy, radiant finish. It is super long stay as well! Since this is quite sheer, I used the KIKO Highlighting Pen (medium coverage highlighting concealer) in shade 03 to brighten up the under eyes, centre of the face and the mouth region. I loved how well this blended into the skin. I’m really enjoying trying out new KIKO products at the moment.

For the cheeks, I ended up using the Colorbar Feel the Rain blush duo which I’ve mentioned several times in my videos, I love LOVE this blush duo! The dusty rose matte shade gives the most natural looking pink flush to the cheeks while the peachy highlighter adds a really pretty soft highlight. The formula is really good as well, soft blendable powders without any fallout and the packaging with the droplet detailing is another major plus point. Can’t recommend this enough!

I kept the eyes very simple with just mascara; I used the KIKO Volume Sculpt mascara which was a little underwhelming to be honest. It did give decent length but I was hoping for more volume. I filled in my brows with the ColourPop Precision Brow Pencil in shade Bangin’ Brunette. This is a fabulous product! Just as good as the Benefit brow pencil, but at a fraction of the price! And lastly, for the lips, I tried out the new IsaDora Liquid Matte lipstick in shade Berry Babe. Gorgeous berry rose shade with a very comfortable, long stay matte formula, loved this from the first application itself!

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna : First Impressions

 

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna

 

Hi everyone! Rihanna launched her makeup line, Fenty Beauty, a few weeks back and the beauty world can’t stop talking about it! The first batch of products were mostly complexion/face products along with a universal shade of lip gloss. I picked up a few of the products to try out (couldn’t resist all the buzz!). I placed my order directly on the Fenty Beauty website and used a mail forwarding service (ShipOutFromUSA.com) to get the products delivered from US to India.

I picked up the foundation in shade 270. Since its a fairly new brand, swatches of all the foundation shades together weren’t easy to come by so I had to make an educated guess to choose my shade. I also picked up the primer, the lip gloss and a highlighter duo. I haven’t tested the products properly yet but I wanted to share my first impressions of the products with you.

GLOSS BOMB – Universal Lip Luminizer ($18)

This comes in a universal rose-y beige shade with ultra fine shimmer and incredible shine. I do love a glossy lip and this nude shade gives a lovely juicy shine to the lips. Its not too opaque so I like using a mauve pink or deep rose lip stain underneath this to add some color. The texture is very comfortable; non-sticky and super hydrating. I was on the fence about how unique this would be (it’s a nude lip gloss after all), but there is something about it that makes me reach for it over and over. I think its the feel of the formula – it doesn’t sit in a thick, gloopy layer on the lips and instantly hydrates and softens the lips. I can see myself using this for a long time. I like the look of the packaging as well!

Everyuth Tulsi Turmeric Face Wash REVIEW

 

Hi, everyone! While I was growing up, Everyuth was one of those brands I was very familiar with. My mum used to religiously use the orange peel off mask every Sunday and sometimes she would let me remove the mask once it dried off. Peeling off that mask was super exciting for a 10-year old me. It’s been many years since I used Everyuth products, but I was recently sent a lovely hamper to try out, and I’ve been trying out their face washes and face packs since the past few days.

One of the products that I found myself reaching out for again and again is the Tulsi Turmeric Face Wash. The face wash is a gel-based product that comes in a transparent green tube packaging. The open flip cap shuts tightly, so there are no issues regarding spillage of the product if you decide to travel with it. I love gel-based face washes, and this is no exception. The consistency is quite thick, so a little pressure is needed to squeeze the gel out of the tube. It has a faint herbal fragrance, and it lathers well (but not too heavily).
