Videos This Week

 

Hi everyone! I hope you had a good week! Here is a recap of the videos that went up on my YouTube channel this week. Still in the spirit of Diwali festivities, I uploaded 2 tutorials – one is a soft, day time look where I’ve also shown a step-by-step skin care routine using Aviance Hydra Balance range. Starting with the soothing and fresh Cleansing Gel from the range, I cleansed my face and then used the Serum for deep reaching hydration and the Day Creme for instant nourishment and a dewy finish. Watch my video embedded below to see the full routine on how to prep you skin before makeup application.

In the second video, I’ve shown the look I wore on Diwali evening. Its a fairly simple look with emphasis on the eyes in the form of metallic gold eye shadow, paired with a neutral warm lip. Next, keeping up with new launches, I’ve swatched all the shades of the new Nykaa Floral Carnival collection for you. Its a gorgeous collection and if you’re a fan of pinks, purples and deeper rouge tones, do check it out. And lastly, since the last DIY video was so well-received and I got several requests for dry skin remedies, I’ve done a DIY Moisturizing Scrub-Mask that can help you achieve soft, smooth, moisturized skin this winter!

Nykaa Floral Carnival Nail Collection

 

Hi everyone! Hope you had a good Diwali! Today I’m sharing the all new Floral Carnival collection from Nykaa with you. This range contains 16 shades of cream nail paints, divided into four color categories – Reds, Pinks, Pink Browns and Purples. Each color category contains four colors starting from lighter pastels to more saturated, rich colors. There’s a color for every skin tone in here, especially among the pinks that give us lots of variety in this collection as a whole! If you’re into ombre nails, its very easy to pick the gradients as well as the colors go from light to dark.

Overall, its a very pretty collection! The Nykaa cream formula is quite nice, most shades applied opaque with single coat (only some of the lighter colors needed two coats for full opacity) and they have a nice cream finish with a quick dry formula. They stay well on my nails for 5-6 days without chipping.

Price : Rs 179 for 9 ml | Buy online at Nykaa.

Nykaa Matte Nail Paints : Review | Part 1

 

Hi everyone! Nykaa has recently launched their Matte nail polish range (Rs 199 each) consisting of 12 shades, most of which are a soft pastels. I’m sharing swatches of 9 of these shades in this post along with a quick review of the formula. I’ve recently tested the Revlon Matte Nail Enamels as well and in comparison, I find the Nykaa mattes a little more durable with better staying power. The consistency of most of the Nykaa shades is on the thicker side (with some exceptions) and most shades applied opaque in two coats. I had some trouble with the white (07 White Chocolate Ganache) and pale blue (18 Blueberry Macaron), which applied a little bit uneven, but the inconsistency was visible only close up. They did not take long to dry though with the thick formula, they aren’t the quickest drying nail paints either.

Revlon Matte Nail Enamel | Review

 

Revlon Matte Nail Enamel - Flaming Matte
Revlon Matte Nail Enamel – Flaming Matte

 

Hi everyone! Revlon recently launched their matte nail paints (Rs 190 each) and I received 3 gorgeous bright shades to try out. I love my matte lipsticks but I wasn’t sure about matte nail colors but I’m happy to report, I really like how these looks on my nails. The formula has medium consistency, goes near opaque in two coats, dries quite quickly and has a gel matte finish. These aren’t flat mattes but I really like the cushioned gel matte look. Because of the matte finish, the colors look quite intense and I love the polished velvety look.
