Lancome grandiose mascara

I totally agree to the fact that if one makeup staple that I can’t live without is always a good quality wondrous mascara. Anyways, who couldn’t able to resist the thick, volume and fuller looking lashes, isn’t it? Stunning! Besides, I do have a fair share of mascara trying out then and there too and I’m absolutely proud enough to say that in the meantime as well. But instead, if you ask me, “Is that necessary to try out different varieties of mascara?”, then I would say that, yes, it is definitely a swoon worthy deal for sure since the more the mascara you try out, the better the knowledge you could gain and hence, don’t leave a chance to refine yourself.

My 6 Comeback Beauty Heroes.

15jan161

As we are all residing in the mid of January, I think this is the right time to rewind back some of the beauty products that completely transformed the definition of beauty and also served me as a beauty hero in which some of them will be carried forward to the existing collection of beauty wardrobe. Apparently, what a bang on year was 2015! Sensational! In terms of beauty that includes from skincare to makeup, a few favourites of mine were reigning the whole year of 2015 beauty regime as a true champion and even though, there are lots to discuss about and get appreciated yet here, I have cherry picked 6 of those items which I like the most among all others.

15jan162

Anyways, who can able to resist the gorgeous pigmented and shimmeriness of the eyeshadow that exists in just Mac eye shadows alone that are beauty marked as velvet. Besides, what do you expect from this product? Well, it has a dense texture that is easy to build and bendable to give you a evenly covered look and there is no doubt that it could give you an instant long-lasting glam look with just a tiny amount of the content and so, it gives you a long mileage as well. So, if you are looking for an eyeshadow that is quintessential for an evening wear, then this purple eyeshadow is the right choice as it glam up your eyes right away.

 

15jan163

So, what does this stunning Eyeko London Black Magic Mascara claim to do? Well, this mascara works extremely well for a long lasting wear and the main properties of it includes: lengthens lashes, separates and curls without clumping, creates drama with extreme lash volume and projects your lashes with intense carbon black that are water resistant too. Additionally, its unique formula is enriched with special key ingredients like keratin and shea butter that are ideal to aid as a lash care and hence, it keeps your lashes hydrating and also the natural conditioners in the formula provides a high percentage of smudge proof and flake proof coverage as well.

15jan164

Another fantastic eye makeup product that is hard to resist is Lancome Ombre Hypnose mono eye shadow in the shade Lagon secret wherein the tint comes as robin blue. In further, this eye shadow looks as luminous and silky and does the job brilliantly well for a sophisticated and vibrant look and application wise, it is so simple to use and what you all need to do is, just apply the eye shadow all over the eyelids and the creamy, super soft texture of the eye shadow stays on your lids for a long lasting effect or otherwise, if you want to have a bit more play, then blend and build well to get an intense warm look.

15jan167

One more beauty product that defines your eyes fabulously beautiful is  2-in-1 Dior addict Fluid Shadow and this light weight fluid shadow is designed explicitly for a dual purpose note of eye shadow and eyeliner. While moving along to its texture, it is thin and watery that is ideal to give you an enamel finish flawlessly. Plus, the bristles on the brush are designed in such a way to give you a smooth and even application each time you stroke it on your eyes. Importantly, the secret to get a precise look is just stick onto one stroke application using the brush and don’t try to budge or blend either with your finger or a brush as the fluid dries up quickly but I should say that the finished look is long lasting(I mean it a lot) and doesn’t fade at all. I know it is tricky to use but the completed look appears to be pure elegance.

15jan165

Now, let’s move onto lipstick. Apparently, if you are looking for a luscious red lips like Marilyn Monroe, then this bold, bright red lipstick from Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme in the shade Love that red is the right choice for you as it gives a signature statement red lips with an added value of gorgeous opaqueness. Moreover, the lipstick is well pigmented and super hydrating and the texture is quintessentially light weight and very versatile to use.

15jan166

Multi-tasker! That is a perfect definition to call this Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant because it protects and stays onto my skin just as a second skin. In conclusion, it acts as a glove to my skin and it hydrates and moisturises my skin all day long; plus, it protects my skin against the extreme dryness and wind chapped skin conditions.

Well, let me know your beauty heroes that you’ve already used in 2015 and still like to carry along to the current year too. And, As always, I would love to see your fantastic thoughts and views into the comment section that is right below.

Happy Weekend!

2015 Beauty Edit.

It is nearly end of the year and tomorrow is officially 2016 and I know there is no other better way to put forth all those gorgeous beauty goodies into a beauty edit that I have been embracing all throughout the year. Besides, 2015 has been a remarkable year for me when it is related to beauty routine as I have been experimenting with various range of beauty products and finally, I’m selecting couple of them to showcase in front of you and hence, let’s see what are the cult beauty  favourites that I have been celebrating in my beauty regime all year long.

Skincare:

Obviously, skincare is one of those foremost beauty essentials that I have been very picky and splurging on as I’m aware that spending each penny onto skincare is an absolute must as it is going to serve as a second skin all day long. So, to start with, I would say that OZ Naturals HA Moisturising Serum is one of the best found in 2015 as I have been using it every day in my regular skincare routine and this serum is one of the beauty secrets to keep my skin supple and moist all day long. Then, Olay Essentials  Complete Care Day Cream is another great product that I can’t skip as it keeps my face hydrated and moisturised all throughout the day. Next, my winter skin saviour is none-other-than, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant as this wonder cream can instantly transforms my dry winter skin to super soft tender skin. Next, while moving onto hands, another intense moisturising cream that can withstand winter chill weather conditions is Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Hand Treatment. Lastly, I absolutely adore my lip protectant as it assists me more than a lip balm which I’m proud enough to name it as Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15 and also, the added factor of SPF is much needed for all types of weather norms including rain, hot or cold.

Body Butters:

Firstly, I love body butters as they leave my skin silky satin soft and two of my heart-warming favourites are Soap&Glory The Righteous Butter and Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E.

Haircare:

Haircare is a must-have beauty essential that any beauty lover needs and I always head onto Kerastraight Rescue Creme when my hair needs a bit of TLC as it recovers my dry hair immediately and replenishes my hair back to normal and the other interesting hair product that I use is Matrix Biolage Voluma Therapie Full Lift Volumnising Conditioner as this product gives a deep conditioning statement to my hair and it also lifts my hair with a fluffy volumnising effect.

Nails:

11aug152

Ciate London is definitely a newly found nail product of the year and moreover, I’m a great fan of Olivia Palermo and I’ve been completely adorning my nails with Ciate London Cha Cha Cha for the whole of summer months.

Makeup:

As a beauty addict,  we all know mascara has the shortest lifespan among all other beauty staples and that’s why I’ve been swapping mascara for every 4 months and three of the best that I want to mention here are Burberry Mascara In Midnight Black, Eyeko London Black Magic Mascara and Lancome Hypnose Mascara Volume. Next, the nude chic lipstick that I’ve been wearing it for millions of times is the mighty creamy lipstick, Lancome L’absolu Rouge Rose Nu. Well, when it comes to eyeshadow, I always get inspiration from the Parisian look and that’s why I mostly opted for two divine products that includes Lancome eyeshadow in the shade robin blue and MAC Fard A Paupieres. Lastly, the recent amazing innovation of Dior that has taken beauty to next level is Dior Addict Fluid Shadow in which case it can be applied either as an eyeshadow or as an eyeliner.

Perfume:

Besides all, I love perfumes and they are my all-time beauty assets that I can’t deny at all and I always prefer to have a range of perfumes lying on my dressing table and some of the key aromatherapy cult beauties are:
