3 Streetwear Color Rich Ultra Moist Lipstick Swatch and Review // Pink Passion 11, Pink Pirouette 19, Pink Persuasion 25


When you see budget lipsticks in India, here are the thoughts what that comes to mind –
  • only brown, burgundy and maroon shades 
  • frost finish with chunky glitters
  • bad plastic smell.
Interestingly, new lipsticks from Streetwear by Revlon broke all the notions.

The new lip color range by Streetwear not only have an interesting packaging but also available in good vibrant young color range, frost free and does not have any bad smell.

Red Blue Glitter NAIL ART // Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, Cherry Red, In the Spotlight

Red Blue Nail Art // Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, Cherry Red, In the Spotlight
 

I have lost count on the number of times that I have told you about Sally Hansen Pacific Blue. So, I will not tell you again how wonderful the cobalt blue nail polish is and how sad it is that the color is now discontinued. Here is present you my current nail art.

Red - Sally Hansen Cherry Red (swatch)

Blue – Sally Hansen Pacific Blue

Glitter – Sally Hansen In the Spotlight. Sally Hansen In the Spotlight have holographic bar glitters (like sprinkles) in transparent base. The glitter is sparse so, you will have to fish it out and spread it carefully to get the correct placement. Somehow, I feel that the price (Rs 250) is bit too much for this.

Bath Favorites // Body Oil During Summer ~ Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil

Bath Favorites // Body Oil for Summers (Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil)


It is not a secret that I love skincare, bath, and body more than makeup and shoes. I do not know why it is this way. I do plan to invest more in clothes and accessories, but in the end, I buy more of what I like more. And here are the products that I am deeply addicted to right now.

  • Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturizer Skin Conditioner (Rs 250 for 250 ml)- I like the idea of skipping moisturizers and using this. This is something interesting/different but it can be either a boon or just another useless thing so, read the review here. I finished it today.

  • Oriflame Nature Secrets Exfoliating Shower Gel with Energising Mint & Raspberry (Rs 379 for 250 ml) – I like it sooooo much that I use it every day. Yes, every day! Review.

In Love with AVON Ultra Color Matte LILY and GARNET Lipstick // Review

AVON Ultra Color Matte LILY and GARNET Lipstick // Review

There are things that you are in love with since Day 1 and but then the love fades, you completely forget about them only to discover them lying around somewhere in your vanity drawers during spring cleaning!

Then, there are things which you love from Day 1 and the love never fades.

When I saw these two lipsticks in my mail box, I was in deep deep love. Loved the color, formula, packaging, texture, price and I wished to shout out - GO BUY THIS. But, for some reason, I was afraid. What if the love for this fades? What if it does not deliver the way it does after few days? So, I hold my horses and after 5 weeks, here is the complete review. (Yup, I take time)

6 Current Favorites and New Discoveries // Mini Review // July '14

Innisfree Camellia Shine Hair Essence, Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream, The Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine Perfume Oil, Care and Essentialz Cotton Pads, Streetwear Color Rich Perfection Compact, Sally Hansen Pacific Blue
 
Here are few of my current favorites and new discories along with their mini reviews.
 

Innisfree Camellia Shine Hair Essence – I still love the serum as much as I have from the very beginning. As I do use sulfate free shampoos and hardly use silicon conditioner, I need a very little of this to detangle my hair. Interestingly, I am yet to reach the 50% mark even after around 6 months of use. In fact, I now take the continued existence of this hair serum for granted and do not think that this will ever land on any empties post! I highly recommend this hair serum if you can source this. Review 

Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream – What started as a nappy rash cream is now everyone’s favorite for acne. I was aware how miraculous the product is as I have seen a lot of before and after product. Recently, I discovered it at Little Shop and grabbed it. Few weeks back, I had severe rashes all over my face – red angry ones. And this worked like magic. In 4 days, my skin was back to normal with no marks left behind. I gave some to one of my colleague who suffers from severe cystic acne and this helped her as well. This is a miracle product.

The Body Shop Indian Night Jasmine Perfume Oil – Not as strong as itra, looks cute and smells nice. This is practically living in my makeup pouch and I make sure to take it around. As it is small, it fits even the tiniest clutches. I was afraid of the glass bottle as it might break but the glass is surely strong enough. Review.


Makeup Bag Contents - Body Shop Night Jasmine Perfume Oil, Crabtree and Evelyn Torocco Orange Hand Cream, Streetwear Compact, MAC Mocha, Origami 3 Ply Pocket tissues, Lakme eyeconic kajal.

7 Street Wear (By Revlon) Color Rich Nail Polish Swatches // Compared with Maybelline Color Show


3 Months Back - Somewhere, in a board room

Revlon MD - "So, what issue are we facing in sales?"

People are buying Maybelline Color Show nail paints and no one seems to bother about Revlon

"Why?"

Low price

"So, lets produce some nail paints in 5ml bottles like Maybelline does and sell them at a price lower than them"

But, girls also like cute packaging. Something female cartoon types that Elle 18 did.

"How many cartoon characters are there in Elle 18?"

One.

"Then let's double that up and introduce two!"

But, MAC already released a collection last year with - Archies collection with two girls - Betty and Veronica.

"Then, let's introduce double of that to be on the safe side. Make it four and do give them proper names"

Consider it done Sir.

"And since we are targeting the collage going crowd - launch lipsticks, liquid foundation makeup, kajal, liquid eyeliner and compact power as well"

Perfect idea Sir. 

-----

The above is what I imagined what happened when Street Wear decided launched these products. I went to the store to buy at least one nail polish from each. But, the shopaholic bug in me could not be contained any more and hence, I got nail polishes and lipsticks. I went again after a week and got another nail polish, another lipsticks and the compact powder as well. (I am trying not to visit the mall anymore. LOL)


So, now, I will stop blabbering and start with the nail swatches of the new toony nail enamels launched by Street Wear (By Revlon)
