NEW! Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipsticks

 

Hi everyone! Estee Lauder has just launched a lovely range of lipsticks, called Pure Color Love. These are priced at Rs 1900 each, come in 30 shades, in a variety of finishes. I have two shades from the Ultra Matte finish to share with you – Bar Red (rich, classic red) and Love Object (dark berry). The brand kindly sent me these lipsticks with my name engraved on the packaging, so thoughtful!

Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup | Review

 

Hi everyone! Recently someone asked me on YouTube about the kind of base I wear for regular outings, meetings etc. and today I’m answering just that question in this post. The Mumbai weather is really not kind to makeup wearers, especially those with oilier skin types and I’ve always struggled with finding the perfect product that would give me light to medium coverage with a long-stay, non-oxidising finish. I am a little partial to high end products when it comes to base makeup, simply because I get better shade options in higher end brands and in most cases, the formula is a little superior as well.

In the past, I’ve loved using the following bases for regular wear – NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, Clinique Age Defence BB Cream, The Body Shop Cushion Foundation (yet to launch in India) and the LA Girl Pro BB Cream. My latest love though is the Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup. The name is a mouthful but to put it simply, its a light-medium coverage, hydrating, long lasting foundation. And it comes in a unique twist-up packaging with a sponge at the tip for buffing and blending the foundation. The sponge tip has a tiny well in the centre so when you twist the base, a bit of liquid foundation appears through the well. You can then dab it directly on the skin and use circular buffing motions or light swiping motions to blend it into the skin. The cushion (sponge tip) has a slight stiffness to it and its not super absorbent so it doesn’t drink up your foundation. It does a really good job of blending so you don’t need to go back in with your fingers or another tool to get a seamless finish. In terms of packaging, this is very unique and truly easy-to-use.

5 High-End products worth the splurge!

 

Hey everyone!

Today I’m sharing a few favorite high-end, luxury makeup items that I feel are worth the big bucks! This is by no means a list of all of my favorite high end beauty items but just a few that I have been loving lately. Do share your luxury beauty favorites in the comments section below!

 

1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (Rs 3000)

This is my favorite foundation and that is saying something because I’ve tried a ton of them! Its a classic liquid foundation – neither too runny nor too thick which gives medium-high coverage and a flawless natural finish. It makes my skin look amazing every time and it stays put throughout the day without oxidising or turning greasy on my skin. It photographs really well too which is why its perfect for special occasions, especially weddings. Highly recommended! Full review here.

2. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipsticks ($37)

I couldn’t NOT mention the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks here. They are simply the prettiest lipsticks around (look at the gorgeous gold packaging!) and the formula is wonderful. The classic range is creamier while the Shine range has a glossier finish and a slightly sheerer formula. It still packs on plenty of pigment and gives a gorgeous, luscious look to the lips. The formula is buttery soft and it hydrates better than any lip balm I’ve used. It also smells like mango which happens to be my favorite fruit! If you like pinks, do check out #17 Rose in Tension. See full review here.
