Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette


Oh missed you guys!

So sorry that I was away for a week but now I am back 🙂 Hope you had an amazing weekend. I have bought so much of make up stuff ( Not guilty :P) and will share with you soon. I have been wearing this product everyday.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palettte ~ Hot Spice 

14446252_689402544545204_1103684650_o

This is my first blush palette from the brand Makeup Revolution and I am so happy with my purchase. The palette  contains two baked highlighting shades that have a marbled effect plus six blush shades that are a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. You can buy this from their website or from Ulta for $10.

Makeup Revolution state:  ‘Our ULTRA Blush & Contour palette is perfect for the professional application desired by all of us. Perfect for highlighting and contouring too. Professional and highly pigmented, yet easy to blend, these contain 8 shades consisting of shimmer and matte blushers, merged baked blusher, and merged baked highlighter powder. The ULTIMATE blush palette offering you 8 shades in 1 to suit any occasion! 8 exclusive and unique shades in each palette can be either used individually or combined to create the shade that you want. With a selection of matte and shimmers, merged and highlighting powder in each palette and set in a mirrored compact for touch ups on the go. Available in 2 palettes – 8 unique shades in each’ 

I am in love with the packaging. It looks so sleek and beautiful with that gold&black look. Though its made up of plastic but that makes it lighter and easy to carry around.

Hot Spice is loaded with beautiful nude and peachy shades, like coral, peach, rust, and pinky peach. I wanted to buy something which looks very natural and this is what I had it in my mind. This contains peach tones mixed in with the white. The darker highlight wears beautifully as a highlighter. The other blush can be use as topper or alone as a sheer shimmery flush of color.

Some are more pigmented than others which means this palette will suit pale to medium skin tones best 🙂 These peachy and Terracotta shades will look amazing this fall.

Overall, you can’t beat these beautifully pigmented palette, an amazing for the price it comes. Our drugstore lacks blush palettes and I haven’t seen anything like this. Let me know if you have used any other drugstore palettes. Love these super high-quality formula and nice range of matte and shimmer shades in warm and cool tones.

Thank you for reading this!

NYX Cosmetics Mini Haul


13460901_642522539233205_434657003_o

Hello Peeps  ,

Back again with another haul! This time its from the brand NYX.Some of these products are pretty old in the market and some new. Most of the stuff I have tried and swatch. I am in love with some of these products and I am super excited to share them with you

>>NYX Born To Glow 

13446331_642522579233201_662769252_o

Product Description

Prep and brighten your complexion in just one simple step. Start off your routine with our Born to Glow Illuminating Primer, the next generation of our fan favorite Illuminator. This two-in-one primer ensures the smoothest makeup application while also delivering an exquisitely radiant finish.

I bought this 4 days back and I have used it once. There are some yay and nay points for this product. Its great for dry skin and really hydrates and makes your skin smooth. Just like any other primer you have use it before you put on your foundation. It really brightens up your face and the dull areas. Additionally, glycerin is like the second or third ingredient. It helps to provide the skin with long term hydration, glycerin really helps any makeup you apply on top of it to stay put and stay put for a long time.

The cons of this product is its not for all skin type. The tanned or the warm skin tone people won’t appreciate the white glow it brings out. Make sure you don’t use it too much otherwise it will bring out the ghostly white which doesn’t look so natural. This product can work wonders for one skin but not so much for the other skin type.

So far I am happy with this product. Its available for 14$ at Target/Walgreens/Ulta beauty.

>>NYX Cream Blush

13467316_642522572566535_552754924_o

Product Description

Our velvety smooth mineral Rouge Cream Blush offers a sheer wash of radiant color. The glorious payoff is dewy sultry and long-lasting.

I bought the color ‘boho chick’ which is a light blue toned pink. I have never used a cream blush before so thought of trying this. This gives my skin that dewy look which i don’t get from powder blushes. The formula is quite thick and the color is very pigmented. There is a great range of colors to choose from.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an excellent alternative to powder blush. I am not sure if it work with the oily skin as it is bit sticky and creamy which is not very idle for oily skin.

The only complain that I have is its application. I wish they went on a bit smoother; I use them with either my fingers (which I feel like does not deposit enough of the color or leaves an intense spot) or my Real Techniques stippling brush.  I found the best brush to apply cream blushes in a realistic way is a stippling brush. Using my fingers just produces an intense spot with drag marks. A regular fluffy blush brush seemed ineffective. Wish the packing had come like a stick on tube.

Price is 6$ and is available online / drugstore

>>NYX Cosmetics White Liquid Liner

13461247_642522552566537_1111897862_o

Product Description

Opaque, water resistant White Liquid Liner. Perfect for the lash or waterline, the precision brush helps create a defined white line, leaving you with standout eyes and a lasting matte finish.

I love NYX products and a huge fan but this product disappointed me. Its flaky and its not smooth at all. The liner is too runny, requires multiple coats to get it opaque enough, and cracks like crazy. In short not happy 😦

Price 7$ and is available online and drugstore

>>NYX Intense Butter Gloss

13467318_642522529233206_605452357_o

Product Description

Smother your lips with a silky gloss bursting with color! Our Intense Butter Gloss has the same mouth-watering texture and scent of the original formula with even more color payoff in 12 new delectable shades.

Its my repurchase and I am sure everyone knows about this product. I am a huge fan of their lipsticks and lip gloss. Their cream lip matte is my all time favorite. I bought the color chocolate crepe. These are highly pigmented, great for dry lips and has an amazing range of colors. The price is just 6$

>>NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick 

13441888_642522535899872_111869175_o

Product Description

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick is our classic lipstick for all occasions. The mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvet texture saturated color and it resists wear and smudging. It’s your go-to lipstick. From Pure Nude to Pink Lyric to Chic Red Round Lipstick is available in a jaw-dropping variety of shades.

Again a repurchase and I am a huge fan of this range. The colors are amazing and its very pigmented. I bought the color Tea Rose and its an amazing color. Its a muted plum color which moisturizes and stays on pretty well. Just love them 🙂

Price 4$ and available online and on drugstores
