Elf Haul & Express Review

Hi guys,

As far as brands go I love ELF products, but they are quite mostly in India hence whenever my friend is coming back to India from US I make sure he gets few ELF products for me.

During his this visit I got below products from Target. It’s great when you have people to mule your stuff and you don’t have to pay shipping and customs on it, hence I got it super cheap.

Products I got:

1.      ELF Mineral infused face primer (6$)

2.      ELF tone adjusting face primer (6$)

3.      ELF makeup mist and set spray (3$)

4.      ELF Setting powder in sheer (6$)

5.      ELF baked highlighter in moonlight Pearls (4$)

 Ingredients:

My thoughts
All the products come in standard black thick paper outer packing, with one side transparent to see the products inside.


ELF face Primers:
It comes in frosted plastic bottles which has pump to dispel the product. Colour is coordinated with the colour of the product.
ELF Mineral infused face primer is transparent primer which provides skin with added benefits of minerals.

ELF tone adjusting face primer is purple colour primer which does help to even out the face to some extent.

Both the primers feel silky wet on skin. It’s not silicone base primer as per me, and gets easily absorbed in skin. They make skin smooth and creates great base for the makeup to glide on.
Only a pea sized product is required for entire face. It works well and has increase the stay time of my makeup by 4 to 5 hours. It is lightweight and non-greasy, which is great for even oily-combination skin.
Only thing I would have changes would be in packaging, to make it feasible for me to know how much product is visible.  I’m quite happy with all other things about them, but to be quite honest they are not the best products in market, and not a must buy.
ELF Setting powder (Sheer)
This comes in small tub with netted cap so we can get the required amount from it. It also comes with excellent quality puff. Tub is quite sturdy and very travel friendly.

The powder is white in color and extremely finely milled. It feels super smooth and works very well for baking as well of setting the face. Biggest pro is it photographs really well and doesn’t give any white cast in pics.
It has good stay time and touch ups are not require for min 3-4 hrs. this is my go to powder for all purposes and I’ll definitely recommend buying this one.

ELF makeup mist and set spray

It is housed in black plastic bottle with spray pump. I wish it was bit sheer so that I could see the amount of product let in bottle. Also, nozzle is nothing to write home about and I’m not super impressed with it.

It was quite a task for me to use this one as the nozzle is real pain to use but the product works, So I’m happy. It has increased the stay time by 4 hrs without primer underneath and my makeup doesn’t melt even in the heat & humidity of Mumbai. Once sprayed it gets absorbed under a minute and doesn’t have any offensive smell as such. The biggest pro is that this is alcohol free setting spray.

I’ll recommend this one if you can get it easily.
ELF baked highlighter in moonlight Pearls

This beauty comes in small blush case and is dome in shaped. It has transparent cover which feels very flimsy. Overall the packaging could have been better.  

The product looks very hard to touch but is quite pigmented and gives blindly glow if gone overboard with it. It had fine shimmer and looks very beautiful when blended. It gives almost natural radiance if used sparingly and blended well.
It is golden in color hence looks really well on girls with yellow undertones. It doesn’t fell chunky and it doesn’t exaggerate the texture of the face and blending seamlessly. It quite forgiving to the flaws and bumps on face. Very little product is required for each use hence the product will last quite long.
It has stay time of 5 hrs. overall, I really like this highlighter but I prefer my makeup revolution highlighter to this one. Buy it if you get it cheap and if you want to try baked highlighter to normal powdered one. But not really a must buy.

Maybelline Lip Gradation: Swatches, Review

Hey all,

I know I’m bit late with this review and swatches, but I recently got my hands on all the shades that I wanted from this range, so here it is, better late than never …I guess .So without further delay let’s get on with it.

Product description: (From the website)

It’s time to experiment with your lip makeup. Available in 8 bright, matte shades, this double-sided lip product will inspire you to experiment with your looks. The color stick at one end will give a gorgeous pop of color while the cushion blender tool at the other end will give a sexy, graded look. For a complete trend-on look, apply color on the centre of your upper lip and use the sponge smudger to extend the color to the outer edges till the contours of your lips or use it as a matte lip color or a lip liner.

Packing:

It comes in slender tube with product on one side and smudger on the other side. Tube is of same color as the shade it hosts thus making it easier to find without much hassle. The packing extremely sturdy and travel friendly and pink1 is perpetually in my bag.

Texture:

Texture of these babies is extremely creamy and smooth. It just glides on your lips without any tucking.  It is super pigmented and gives opaque lips in just one swipe. It has no shine or gloss what so ever and it is completely non sticky on lips. Best part is even though these are matte lippies they do not settle in lip lines but sit very comfortable on lips. On application they settle in to powdery matte finish.

Fragrance: None

Price: 500 INR

Where to buy: You get these in all the store and Amazon, Flipkart, Nykaa

My experience:

Amongst all the color my favourite is pink 1 as its very wearable everyday color. These last for entire day (with meals) and I have to remove them with makeup remover at end of day.

L - R : Orange 1, Pink 1, Red 1, Fuchsia 1, Mauve 1


Orange1: it’s a medium reddish orange color, would look stunning on ducky beauties.

Pink1: As stated before I love this color. Its beautiful midtone color there is nothing “unique” per say but it’s extremely flattering on all skin tones.

Red1: Its beautiful cherry red, a must have for glamorous outings. It’s quite similar to MAC chili

Fuchsia1: Its perfect fuchsia, perfect blue based pink. This lippie is my dream come true.

Mauve1: Its most definitely not mauve but a brown nude. I seriously do not like this color as it looks muddy on me and washes me out, but would look pretty on medium to dusky skinned beauties.

Overall:

I really liked these as they are highly pigmented, longwear and very comfortable especially for the price, but color range is not so exciting. I still feel if you don't like to touch-up your makeup often, then you need these in your stash.

Texture:

The brow wax is quite thick and I was bit sceptical to use it, but it has unique texture to say the least. It is not too creamy or too sticky like normal brow wax but very powdery kind of wax which makes it look natural on the brows.

It has really great staying power. It lasted for good 9 hrs on me without fading a bit.
It is said to use the wax above the powder to keep it in place, but I prefer to use wax as a base and apply powder to make it look more natural as wax on top gives very flat and slight sticky brows look.

Sometimes I top it up with brow mascara to give it more natural and fuller look. It works beautifully that way. Some people may feel its bit expensive but I feel quantity and quality more than justifies the cost.

Swatches: I have used the brush that comes in the kit to apply the products..

Colorbar Perfect Match Primer: Review

Hey guys,

So today I’m going to review one of the most of most import thing of makeup routine especially in summer when your makeup disappears at lightning speed due to heat and humidity. It’s  a Primer

Primer helps keep your product in place for long time by binding agent between your skin and makeup. It goes in after sunscreen and before foundation. It also helps to apply makeup much easily as it form a good base for your makeup to stick on.


For the longest time this was the only primer that I owned which you can guess from the wear and tear on its body, and I was quite satisfied with it.

About Product (As on website)

This satiny touch oil free primer masks the fine lines and uneven texture, making skin marvellously soft and smooth.

Ingredients: Not mentioned.

Price: INR 725 for 30 ml (price may have increased now)

Packaging:

Colorbar Perfect Match Primer come is sleek semi transparent white color tube with sliver twist cap, which looks really classy and chic. Packaging is quite sturdy which makes it really travel friendly. It has a nozzle to dispense the product which helps regulate the amount of product released from tube.

Truthfully I could not have asked for better packaging.

My experience:

Colorbar Perfect Match Primer blends easily on the skin making it smooth and reduces the appearance of pores. It smoothens the uneven texture of the skin which helps your foundation glide on easily.  All you require is pea sized amount of product for entire face. 

Coming to its oil controlling properties, my face stays oil free for good 5 hrs. Even in Mumbai Humidity. My foundation stays fresh and longer when I use it underneath it. It acts as a barrier between the natural oils of case and makeup and prevent the breakdown of makeup you require fewer touch ups.



Pros:
  • Hides pores & Smooths out uneven texture,
  • Controls oil for a longer time
  • Helps concealer/foundation to glide on easily on the skin
  • Spreads and gets absorbed very easily on my face.
  • Increases stay time of base
  • Gives a glow to face.
  • Packaging is travel friendly
  • Affordable
  • Only small amount is needed.
  • Didn't break me out.
Cons:
  • Ingredients not mentioned.
  • Contains silicone & parabens
Overall thoughts: 

It does everything you expect a primer to do – minimize imperfections, give smoother base for foundation, control oil and keep the base looking fresh for longer time. All in all a perfect primer and at reasonable cost.

Rating: 4/5

Recommendation: It is a decent primer which does good job on budget , but not really a must buy as there are lot of other budget primers in market..

Benefit Go TropiCORAL Kit: Review


So recently I broke my Sephora virginity by visiting the newly open Sephora in High street phoenix mall. I’m so happy that at last Sephora has opened in Mumbai.

So basically a kit consists of various deluxe samples of their popular products. I got their kit in Benefit Go TropiCORAL.

It contains below products:


So this is what the Kit looks like.

Packing: 

I love its packing. It’s somehow beautiful blend of being really cute and exceptionally sturdy, which makes it extremely travel friendly. The tint & High beam is housed in small sturdy plastic bottles with good applicators.  Coralista Blush is embedded in the kit itself but can be easily deported if need be. Applicator is of good quality but a bit scratchy. Ultra Plush Coralista Lipgloss comes in plastic tube that has nozzle which helps it to apply the product easily.

My Experience: (With each product individually)

Benefit Chacha tint:

It was probably the first tint I ever knew about. Benefit describes it as mango tinted lip and cheek tint but in reality it’s a nice orangey - peachy shade which looks quite lovely on the skin. I have fair to medium skin tone and it gives appearance of a nice radiant looking skin. It makes my skin look naturally flushed like after a good workout. As it is a tint it works in very subtle way, but color is definitely buildable. .

It dries very quickly so need to blend it fast else it will give patchy finish. It has very impressive stay time; it lasted for 5 hrs in such humid climatic condition of Mumbai. As the name suggest it’s made for lips as well, but I prefer to wear it on cheeks as it dries my lips and then look extremely patchy and gross.

All in all I really like it for days when I’m too lazy and want to look natural but put together.

Benefit High Beam

As per the description provided by Benefit, it’s described as luminescent skin enhancer which is lot of fancy words for a highlighter. It is a very nice satiny pink color highlighter which works well for people with pink undertones. My skin has yellow undertones hence it looks bit off on my skin, which is a shame as I had lot of expectation from it. It blends beautifully and gives very subtle glow and makes you look radiant and glowing without making you look like disco ball.

It comes with applicator wand which is of good quality and does a good job. I was bit disappointed with it but will definitely find a way around the pink undertones.

Benefit Coralista Blush

One of benefits bestseller, Benefit Box O' Powder CORALista blush described as a warm, coral- pink cheek powder (Blush). It has gold micro shimmer which again gives very nice glow to the skin. I like to use it as blush and highlighter all in one package. My inner lazy is always happy with such product.  It would suit most of skin tones, but darker skin beauties might have trouble with it showing up as the color is very neutral and only gives naturally flushed skin. It has pretty good staying powers and fades evenly after 3-4 hrs.

Mini Powder Brush

The Benefit Box O' Powder CORALista blush is accompanied with this small cute brush, which is only decent thing about it. It doesn’t really work and is very scratchy to the skin. So basically, a waste.

Benefit Ultra Plush Coralista Lipgloss

Last but not the least is Benefit Ultra Plush Coralista which as per benefit is a sheer coral color lipgloss and they could not have described it better as it really is a very sheer gloss. It adds just a hint of color to the lips but a lot of gloss. Since its gloss it’s not at all long lasting and disappears in 1 hrs. Max. It has sweet smell but not over the top and is not very stick in texture. Personally I’m not a fan of gloss so will definitely give it to some once else who would appreciate it better.

Overall, I think it’s a fantastic kit as it lets you try a lot of products without having to buy them individually, and I loved almost all the products from it.
