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!

With the temperature already reaching scorching levels, I decided to go with some hydrating treatments for my hair and body. The Hydrating Hair Spa I chose, also known as the System Professional Reborn Treatment, is an ultra-hydrating repair treatment for dry and damaged tresses. We started with a hair consultation with the lovely Afreen being my stylist for the day. After a quick chat about my hair type, concerns etc, she shampooed my hair to cleanse the hair and scalp before applying the treatments. She then used 3 products in succession along the lengths of my hair – the Hydrate Infusion (a concentrated serum-like fluid), the Repair Emulsion (a light emulsion for treating damage) followed by the Hydration Masque.

Makeup Look : Bright Magenta Lip (Quick Look)

 

Hi everyone! Now that I’m back to work after a week of break, I’m slowly easing myself into wearing more makeup. I wore very little makeup when I was visiting my parents so jumping into elaborate looks seems too time consuming! I’ve been doing quick, easy looks the past few days. The easiest look to do when you want something quick yet striking it a bright lip. You can pair this with just kajal, thin liner or a winged liner. I personally love a winged liner as it lifts my eyes and always looks elegant.

This is the look I created today using the Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Tint in Magenta Magic as the focus of the look. Read on for the full list of products used.

Maybelline the Rock Nudes Palette | Tutorial

 

Hi everyone! Maybelline has just launched a new eye shadow palette, the Rock Nudes palette. This is a predominantly cool-toned palette with a few glitter shades, balanced out with satin-y colors. Even though the quality isn’t the best, you can do a few different looks with this palette. The pigmentation is average and the colors are not too intense, which makes it a little easier to use for beginners. The glitter shades were a bit dry and chalky but most of the satin and pearl finish colors were smooth in texture. I didn’t love this palette to be honest but it is priced quite affordably at Rs 899 and is available online as well as across Maybelline counters.

I’ve done a glamorous smokey eye look using this palette. Check out the video below!
