NYX Matte Lipstick

NYX Matte Lipstick Merlot Sweet Pink

I saw NYX Matte Lipstick in Merlot online and wanted to try these myself. Not able to find these in Sephora, Saket, I asked my friend to get me Merlot and Sweet Pink from Dubai.

Price – $6. Approx Rs. 360

NYX Matte Lipsticks are bright and highly pigmented. A single swipe provides amazing coverage. They are available in about 30 shades, from nudes to reds.

NYX Matte Lipstick – Merlot is a berry red shade. Perfect for winters!

NYX Matte Lipstick – Sweet Pink is a vibrant cool toned pink. Totally in love with this color at the moment.

The formula glides on smoothly and doesn’t drag at all. However, as is the case with many matte formulas, I guess the lighter shades might drag and not apply as smooth.

Because these are matte, they last longer than non-matte lipsticks. You can easily expect at least a minimum of 5 hours of wear. I like that these are non-drying and they actually feel comfortable on the lips, unlike many matte formulas I have tried before. And  it also doesn’t settle into fine lines or highlight lip texture issues.

It doesn’t transfer easily and yet at the same time, it’s easy to remove.

Amazing formula, great pigmentation and awesome price… What’s not to love here! Waiting to get my hands on more of these now.. Love, Jas 🙂

Za True White Day Cream

Za-True-White-Day-Cream

I usually stick with my skincare products seriously and don’t try new brands easily. And so I was hesitant to buy products from Za in the beginning. But when I realized that Za has been launched in India by Shiseido brand and I decided to give it a try! Za True White Day Cream is part of it’s True White Skin Care range specially designed with the finest ingredients and Shiseido’s cutting edge science that boosts skin’s inner strength, and revitalizes its outer beauty.

Price – Rs. 999

I have been using this cream everyday after toning for about four weeks now and I still have 2 weeks worth of cream left.

I seriously loved this cream to start with, since I saw a sudden change in my skin tone. It looked much brighter and visibly cleaner within a couple of days. It makes the skin bright and then maintains it. It makes your skin lighter, but definitely doesn’t “whiten” skin tone.

My Thoughts

Lightens and brightens the skin tone

Reduces dark spots and evens out skin tone

The cream moisturizes skin, but I expect my moisturizer to be a little more hydrating. However, my skin does not feel dry after using this

Contain Vitamin C and White Lily extract

I like my day moisturizer to contain sunscreen, so I don’t have to use a separate one. This contains SPF 20 PA++

Not thick or runny, it’s a non greasy, lightweight cream that is easy to blend and gets absorbed quickly.

Za True White Day Cream comes in a lightweight, white plastic jar. I usually prefer tubes or bottles for hygienic reasons. And for the same reason, I wanted to try Za True White Day Lotion, but I bought the cream because the SA told me that the cream is more hydrating.

It’s a good cream and does a good job at brightening the skin tone and I definitely recommend it. My only concern is the price. For this price, I kind of expect the formula to last me 2 months, which this won’t.

Have you tried other products from this brand and what do you think of them? I want to try the Anti Ageing range too.. Love, Jas 🙂

It was a beautiful and fun event. Got a chance to meet many bloggers. The PR had organised hair pampering, tarot reading, tattoo making sessions, all with Arabic music in the background. 😉

Celebrity Hair Stylist Kanta  Motwani was present at the launch and demonstrated the use of Livon Moroccan Silk Serum on a model.

Livon Moroccan Silk Serum

Livon Moroccan Silk Serum: Argan oil is the most talked-about product in the haircare world for a while now. Livon Moroccan Silk Serum contains Argan Oil, Vitamin E and UV Filters as well. I’ve used the serum many times now and I like it.

It’s a light-weight serum, that is runny and has a non-sticky feel on the hair. It has a light and beautiful fragrance. Unlike many other serums, this does not make your hair feel weighed down and sticky. It detangles hair, makes hair smooth and adds a little shine as well.

Livon Moroccan Silk Serum is priced at Rs. 259 for a 59mL bottle.

To match the pink theme, I did a black and pink smokey eye with a gold liner on lower lashline and bright pink lips. Here’s a picture of my makeup from the day of the event. Hope you like.. Love, Jas 🙂

Oriflame The ONE Collection Review

Check out my video review for products from Oriflame The ONE range. I have done a short review for IlluSkin Foundation, IlluSkin Concealer, Style Liner and Volume Blast Mascara.

Oriflame The One Review

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Foundation –

Medium liquidy consistency that blends easily into the skin with brush or fingers

Provides a natural dewy finish

Light to medium coverage, ideal for daily wear

Good staying power

Choosing the correct color is very important. I have Nude Pink, which makes my yellow skin tone look grey.

Price – Rs. 799

Oriflame The One Foundation
Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Concealer 

Medium consistency, not too runny or thick and is super easy to blend

Medium coverage, best suited for moderate pigmentation.

Great for under eye area (I wear this with corrector underneath). It doesn’t settle into fine lines.

Choosing the correct color is important. I have Nude Beige which I wear to conceal my dark circles with an orange corrector underneath, and it works amazingly well

Stays on fresh for 4-5+ hours.

Price – Rs. 349. Great product for the price

Oriflame The One Concealer

Oriflame The ONE Stylo Liner – 

Felt tip eyeliner pen which is very easy to use

It is perfect for winged liners and great for beginners.

I got liner in blue color. It is very pigmented and 1 swipe is enough

Dries quickly

Stays on for whole day.

Non Waterproof and doesn’t stay too well under water.

I like it except it leaves a prominent plum colored stain once makeup is removed. The stain stays for a while till I wash my face again in morning.

Price – 499

Oriflame The One Stylo Liner

Oriflame The One Swatches

Oriflame The ONE Volume Blast Mascara – 

Thin and long wand with small spikes at the tip. It’s really easy to coat tiny lash hair and inner corner of eye

Doesn’t really add volume, but it lengthens the lashes effectively

Does not clump lashes even after 2 coats

Applies wet and holds the curl nicely through the day

Non Waterproof but holds on through the day well.

Price – Rs. 529
