Beauty Blender (Original)-Review, Photos


Beauty Blender (Original)
Company/Brand Claim: The world’s first edgeless, non-disposable, high-definition cosmetic sponge applicator. The unique shape and exclusive material available only with beautyblender® ensures impeccable, streak-free application with minimum product waste. Use it with primers, foundations, powders, cream blushes, and any other complexion product.

My Wishlist 2015-Makeup and Beauty



So here's my wishlist for the current year. It is based on a deep consideration of what I actually need over spending money on just any thing. You won't see any lip sticks, glosses or blushes etc because I don't think I need any more of those at the moment. Less is more so it's better to spend on essentials rather than piling up products I won't use very often. It seems like a lot but I'm not going to go for all of the stuff above. Here's a breakdown.

DMGM Even Complexion Compact Powder 04 Early Tan-Review, Photos, Swatches


DMGM Even Complexion Compact Powder 04 Early Tan
Company/Brand Claim: Even Complexion Compact Powder gives the skin a beautiful natural radiance. Light-reflecting particles make the complexion perfectly even with a natural & translucent finish. With the Micro Jet technology the ultra - fine texture gives a smooth, Satin finish leaving you with a comfortable feeling.

Result: I bought the DMGM Even Complexion Compact Powder along with the DMGM Studio Perfection Secret Wonder Foundation (read review). Using them together gives a flawless finish but for a lighter makeup look I use the even complexion powder alone. The representative suggested the shade in Early Tan which is a peach toned shade and far from the pearl white finish.

DMGM Photo Fix Lip Color 336 Crimson Craze-Review, Photos, Swatches


DMGM Photo Fix Lip Color 336 Crimson Craze

 Company/Brand Claim: Moisturizing, transfer resist, light weight. 

Result: The DMGM Photo Fix lip color falls somewhere between a lipstick and lip lacquer. It's just like a blended version of the solid lipstick without being runny or too liquidy. The first time I tried it at the counter I instantly fell for it as it wasn't anything like I had used before. And since my wedding day was approaching I could hear "you should get this" somewhere in the back of my head.

Sigma E50 Large Fluff Brush-Review, Photos



Company/Brand Claim: Unique Feature: Wide, flat and very soft head
Function: Controlled highlighting.


Result: What tempted me to buy this brush was an eye makeup video of my favorite Youtube guru in which she did a sultry smokey eye look using it, which left me wowing. From what I have personally experienced, this baby can do some more tricks that are very useful and I'm glad to own one.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Colour Rush Lip Balm 710 Drive Me Nude
Company/Brand Claim: A long-lasting intense colour balm in a handy jumbo pencil.
Balm formula offers all-day comfort and a long-lasting surge of moisture.

Result: Trusting my intuition I picked this beauty from the counter even though it was only one piece left and the representative didn't have any tester for it. I expected it to be that proper beige nude as the name hints to it but "drive me nude" turned out to be somewhat different.

Avon Naturals Face Radiance Rose Cleanser-Review, Photos, Swatch


Avon Naturals Face Radiance Rose Cleanser

Company/Brand Claim: Makes skin look brighter. Cleanses and refreshes. Moisturizes skin.

Result: This is my first encounter with a cream cleanser. I have used astringents in the past and to be honest I'm quite done with them as they're too harsh on the skin and not to forget the stingy fragrance. The Avon rose cleanser smells amazing and has a butter soft feeling to it. It is packaged in a white plastic tube with rosy pink text. The texture is creamy but not runny at all. Although not mentioned on the packaging but I think it is suitable for all skin types unless you're allergic to certain ingredients.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Rockin' Curves Mascara 001 Black-Review, Photos


Rimmel Scandal Eyes Rockin' Curves Mascara 001 Black
Company/Brand Claim: Our first broken heart-shaped brush creates a fringe of big, curvy, rockin’ lashes. This cleverly-shaped applicator twists and curves to hug the lash line; the thin tip grabs hard-to-reach inner lashes, while the amplified base pulses lashes with incredible volume and curve. Lashes are plumped and lifted in one clean stroke.

No clumps!

Mini Review-Milani Eye Shadow Primer 01 Nude




The Milani eye shadow primer in Nude is a cream formulated, slightly transparent primer which not only helps eye shadows stay on longer but also intensifies pigmentation, as you can see in the picture above. Apply it using your fingers all over the eye and up towards the brow bone. For those who want to use it everyday will need a new one soon as the 9 ml tube runs out quickly. Avoid it if you have oily lids.
