MAC Syrup Lipstick : Overview & Swatches

February 18, 2011

MAC Syrup is the first lipstick I bought from MAC 🙂 . I had actually gone to buy See Sheer after seeing it on Rashmi but when I tried it, I thought it looked more orangey and less coral on me 😦

I wanted to pick up shade I would use more often rather than something which I would use occassionally since it was my first MAC lipstick and I didnt want something which would just lie there for most of the times. Hence after checking out many many shades, I finally got Syrup which is a very medium pink shade with slight (very slight) mauve undertone. Pink seemed like an obvious choice 🙂

It has lustre finish. No shimmer. MAC website describes this shade as cloudy pink.

Oriflame Visions V* Lipstick : Iced Caffe & Two Twigs Review, Swatches

February 17, 2011

Oriflame Visions V* lipstick was not something which was on my ‘must-try’ or ‘to buy’ list. Rather they were just an impulse and fun buy when I saw these in the catalogue. These are priced really cheap and when I bought them, they were on offer 😀

So I generally picked 2 shades which looked the most appealing to me and something I would wear easily…ICED CAFFE & TWO TWIGS.

MaxFactor Kohl Pencil : 060 Ice Blue Review, Swatches

February 14, 2011

The Maxfactor kohl pencil is my first colored eyepencil. I had seen a girl wearing a light blue colored pencil on her waterline and had totally loved it so I went hunting for that kind of a blue shade. Though many brands had different shades of blue but none were the kind I was looking for. Some were too jhataak for my liking and most of the SAs showed me dark blue eye pencils when I asked for blue. My search finally ended with MaxFactor.

The MaxFactor Kohl pencil is dark blue in color with the shade name mentioned on the pencil and the tip of the pencil in the color of the shade.

Lotus Herbals SHEAMOIST 24-Hr Moisturiser Review

February 8, 2011

I have realised I have this strong liking for strawberry in my skincare products. No doubt that the Lakme strawberry facewash and TBS strawberry body polish are some of my fav products..and no surprise that I picked up this Lotus Sheamoist moisturiser when I read that it has real strawberry extracts and smelled divine like strawberry 🙂

Lotus Herbals SHEAMOIST 24-hr moisturiser with shea butter and real strawberry extracts is meant for dry to normal skin.

What it claims :

This innovative 24-hr moisturiser containing Shea butter and strawberry extract moisturises the skin for extended periods. The time-release formula ensures there are bursts of moisture at regular intervals.

The moisturiser comes in a light yellow colored tube. It claims to provide 24-hr moisturisation by using some time-release formula which frankly was a bouncer for me 😛 I mean what exactly is this time-release formula? The tube provides no further information on this.
