NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam

Hello my lovelies, every time that I go lipstick surfing red color is always my go to. I agree with all the girls who say a tint of red color can do wonders for us. I would judge a lipstick by its red color and then decide it is worth buying or no. Recently I stumbled upon this NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream online and I have always fallen for the reds by NYX. So I picked up NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam after seeing the swatches.

NYX used to be my favorite since my high school much before online businesses came into existence. I got one from a big shop in Mumbai and I lost it on the day of bae’s birthday. I was so full of myself that day that I didn’t realize dropping my wallet and also my favorite red lipcolor.

Product Claims – Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this Matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a Matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some Matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.

Price – 8ml for INR 600

Lip creams are a revolution in the lipcolor segment; I have loved them for their ease of use and rich color. Lip creams come in a packaging like a gloss and dry up like a matte lipstick. The best thing is it does not chap your lips like a normal matte lipstick would do. You might want to use a lip balm as a base if you have superdry and chapped lips like I do.

You can use two lip cream shades and create the perfect ombre lips that are the in thing of the day. Create a base with a lip balm and use a dark shade lip cream for the first color. Add the other lighter shade to create an ombre impression and finish with a transparent gloss.

The color is the prettiest red, it has that English touch to it. It still is quite bright but giving me a desired look every time. It suits very well for my traditional as well as my western outfits. I love to pair it with my black dresses.

5 Reasons Never to Sleep in your Makeup

We all have had days when we hate to remove our make-up and trust me on most days we hate to got through the whole process of removing face makeup. Recently I noticed my skin was not as smooth as it used to be courtesy parties. Though I should not blame it; because the real reason was just wiping my face with a tissue and sleeping with at least the base layer.

Most dermatologists stress on Makeup removal as something more important than putting good makeup and it should be a part of your makeup regime. It is as important as brushing your teeth at night otherwise your mouth bacteria will start acting up.

After figuring out a lot of things, I found out these top 5 reasons never to sleep in your Makeup –

  1. Clogging Pores

We all know what makeup does to us, it covers up all our pores giving us the perfect flawless look. We have become so used to the age old foundation and what not on top of it we have our face primers, highlighters, pressed powders, contouring colors. Your skin may belong to any category but clogging your pores is never a good idea if you want to make your skin shine. It starts with small break outs and coverts to pimples and blemishes very soon.

  1. No No to Foundation

Most doctors say that the base is the worst product to leave on to your face and it should be removed daily for regular application. When makeup like this is not properly removed it results in the breakdown of collagen, wrinkles, clogged pores, and acne flare-ups. And you might be still blaming it on your junk diet.

  1. Eye Makeup

With the amount of love we create our dramatic eyes it is equally important to spend and equivalent amount of time removing every layer of the smokey eyes or the cat eyed liner. Eye make up can do more harm than most other products, it can easily result in red eyes, eye infections, irritation and heating of eyes. Mascara is supposed to damage your eyelids too when not removed properly and never sleep with artificial lashes the gum can spoil your tender skin.

  1. Lipstick sticking to the lips

Your left over lipstick will increase the chapping of your lips many fold. Many lipsticks contain drying waxes which help the lipstick to last longer on to lips. Ideally you need to remove your lipstick and put a nice lip balm on your lips after removing the lipstick to keep your lips baby soft.

  1. The Best part

So after all this you must be wondering what really is required that you remove your make-up. You have various options to choose from – make up removing wipes and makeup removers. Make sure you pick up something that is oil based so that your make up comes off very easily. You just need to take a cotton ball and cleanse your face and eyes. Sometimes eye makeup gets more rigid and takes more time. After cleaning just apply little night cream on your face and non- tinted lip balm for best results.

Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator Review

These days no make-up is complete without a HIGHLIGHTER, wherever you go, whoever you consult people are using highlighters much more than before and also excelling at it. Today we see all makeup enthusiasts banking on this product so I got one which is Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator in Bare Light and I will review it for you guys today.

Not all brands give you many options to choose from when it comes to highlighters but Revlon has come up with Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator which is available in 3 shades – Peach lights, Bare lights and Pink lights.

Price is 950 INR for 30ml of product

Shelf life is 3 years

Shades available: Peach, Bare and Pink lights

Product claims: Banish dullness and even out skin with light capturing crystals and photochromatic pigments for a lit-from-within look. Mix with or wear over foundation to banish dullness and even out skin tone.

My experience with Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator

Packaging – it comes in a slim tube and the color corresponds to the shade you have picked. It has a nozzle button over it so that you can squeeze out the required amount. The package is quite travel-friendly and usable. Only thing since it is too liquid it tends to fall off just by tilting it and you may not need to push the nozzle or else it will lead to wastage.

Usage – you will need a very small quantity of the product and you can use it highlight your cheeks, cupids bow, eye brows and nose in my case. You may use a beauty blender if you are fond of it but I usually stick to my fingers because it works great for me. I can use the right strength and color to blend according to the look I want. The texture is like lotion, with very subtle glitters present and this gives the very natural highlighting finish on the skin. It is good for all skin types. Even the oily skin ones can carry this formula easily as it is light weight and non-greasy. Your skin shows a natural healthy glow with this product and it can be your go to when you are looking for instant pep up to your tired skin. I have used it with a foundation combination. This product comes off very easily with a makeup remover.

Pros –

Easily blended

Natural highlighting

Stays long

Very less quantity is used.

 

Cons

The nozzle of the package

Can be very subtle

Overpriced

How to cure Shoe Bites

Shoes Shoes Shoes!!! we love them much more than we hate them. I keep wondering who was the person who designed a woman’s shoe which is so uncomfortable yet so stylish.  Our feet are never shaped pointed in the front and rounded at the back. Like all of you, even I stand for the quest to find the right shoe every time I go shopping but since I have flat feet buying heels for me is a task at another level. I may buy shoes which look pretty and which are fairly comfortable but then come the ‘shoe bites’ – very innocent piece of my skin which has become a water-bubble and now the problem starts. The blister will remain for a few days and the mark will take months to go. So here is what you can do to cure shoe bites and shoe marks altogether.

How to cure shoe bites

How to cure Shoe Bites –

  1. Butter – Butter has natural healing properties and a shoe bite is usually created by the friction between the shoe and our skin. If you are able to layer your skin and avoid direct contact, your problem is solved. It is advised to massage butter on the prone areas and wash it with luke warm water before wearing a shoe.
  2. Potato juice – as much as it sounds surprising but potato is an age old technique to stay away from shoe bites. You just need to rub the potato slice on your skin. It is also said that potato helps in removing corns as well.
  3. Olive oil and honey – You should mix equal portions of olive oil and honey and create a solution. Use a cotton swab to rub it over the affected area. It will not only help treat your shoe bites but it will also help you to remove your old scars and marks.
  4. White tape – medical tape has worked the best for me. I usually keep my small toe covered with white medical tape before wearing my heels. It makes sure that I don’t get any shoe bites so there is no problem of marks.

These are a few things you can do to stay away from shoe bites but as long as we love stilettos we just can’t avoid shoe bites completely.
