Wet n Wild Shine Nail Color- Be More Pacific

Product Price- Rs 135/-

Quick Review-

Wet n Wild is famous for its affordable makeup range. I have tried couple of their products like lipstik, nail paints, makeup brush and eyeshadow. Overall I am really happy with it.

So this nail paint comes in just Rs 135/- and quantity is really good. It has got a loooong brush applicator some can find it easy and some tough to apply. For me it’s okay but if you are in hurry better to avoid.

Coming to color it’s a beautiful beautiful teal shade has got awesome shine and you definitely going to love this color. But but but a big drawback to this shade is it leave stain behind on nails. I don’t know it’s just with me or with everyone but it has happened many times. Apart from this I really love this shade. It stays good for around 3-4 days without chipping.

Ratings- 8/10 ( 2 dedicated for leaving stain on nails)

Quick Review-

I have so many nail paints from Nykaa, you can check some reviews on my blog and many more I will review in coming times.

MY VIEW-

I just love love love this face wash. I dont know from where to start.

  • A little goes a long way. Very small quantity is enough to give you a squeaky clean skin. This huge tube will end you for months even if you use two times a day. I think for around 3-4 months atleast.
  • The texture of this face wash is very smooth and lathers superbly. You just need a small amount and you are done.
  • Its very easy to clean it wont leave any slippery feel on skin.
  • I feel very refreshed after using it and I feel it does clean your skin very deeply.
  • This face wash is vest suitable for oily skin beauties and it is perfect for summer season. I have super dry skin and I need a moisturiser soon after, but I dont mind that as I always use moisturiser after using face wash.
  • Fragrance is mild.
  • In long run I feel it does help in removing dullness and make your skin bright.

Nail Art for Short Nail- 1

Not all people are blessed with long nails and not all people are blessed with strong nails too..
For me it’s difficult to grow and manage long nails..beauty and makeup is something I like but professionally my work is very different and besides that maintaining my home too. It’s not easy for me to have long nails all the time

So that doesn’t mean short nails is no sexy. Yes so I have planned I will not wait to have long nails so that I can decorate them. Whatever it is I will try to make them look beautiful.

Use of Lipstick As Eyeshadow

Many times we end up buying items which we dont need, but we get either because we loved or it was an impulse purchase. Makeup is something where we always end up buying more items. In this age of online shopping many times we get same shade different formula. It happens with me many times. Same color different formula, or some colors which I thought will be good but it didn’t look good on me. This problem is more common with lipsticks. So one day while I was thinking how to use these lippies and I came across its use as eyeshadow.
So lets divide Lip Colors in 3 categories-
1. Liquid Lipstick- Matte formula
2. Liquid Lipstick- Glossy Formula
3. Lipstick

So in this particular post I have used Liquid lipstick Matte formula as eyeshadow. Among all Matte formula liquid lipsticks are very easy to use as it ends up being creamy powdery or pure powdery. Luckily the shades I used were pure matte and they dried well without any shine and they had Intense color.

Products used:-
1. NYX Soft matte lip cream- Addis Ababa
2. Sugar Smudge me not Liquid Lipstick- Plum Yum
3. LA Girls Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss- Bazar
4. Brush- Avon
5. Colorbar Liquid Eyeliner

I didn’t used anything as base or primer, but you can use any primer or even concealer as base after that with help of brush or finger tap a little color on your eyelid. Start with middle of your eyelid and then smudge. Remember how much color you will use it depends on the pigmentation. So be careful. Let it dry for a minute or two and you can set it with any compact or loose powder and you are done.

In my next post I will do a post on Lipstick as eyeshadow.
Use eyeliner, mascara and kajal however you want it. I have used Colorbar liquid eyeliner.

Maybelline Gigi Hadid Matte Lipstick Erin

This is my 2nd shade from same range. Maybelline Gigi Hadid is a worldwide big hit. I have already reviewed shade Taura here. So after Taura which is a nude neutral shade I was looking for a dark one. I really loved the formula of this range so thought to try this one.

PRICE- Rs 550/-

Formula is creamy matte and it glide on lips very smoothly. I think everyone will love the formula of this range.

I am medium toned skin and this color is cool toned. No doubt I loved this formula and color but somehow I feel as the color is cool toned it didnt brighten my face. Pigmentation is good staying power is around 4 hours.

Now coming to the color its deep mauve brownish kind of shade and this shade will look good on every skin tone. Though for fair it will be more purplish darker and for darker skin tone it will be more like mauvish nude.

Overall I loved this shade and I think one can definitely can give it a try.

Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Ravin’ Raisin

QUICK REVIEW-

Product Name- Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Ravin’ Raisin

Price- Rs 295/-

Review- Wet n wild finally launched on Nykaa (online shopping site) in January’18. They are budget friendly makeup brand and I wanted to try many products from them. To start with I ordered couple of lippies and nail paint. Stay tuned in future for more reviews.

I wanted a deep plum shade with brown undertone and I think I have made a perfect choice. This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s a beautiful brownish plum shade sometimes I feel it’s like deep mauve kind of shade.

The formula is semi matte with creamy finish. It glides on lips very smoothly and it’s deeply pigmented. I noticed it transfer alot. It can’t survive a meal fully. But as it’s really pigmented color just get little fade. Coming to packaging it is very ordinary.

Overall I loved this product at such price and so deeply pigmented. Stays good on my lips for 3-4 hours without meal.

Rating- 7.5/10

Maybelline New York Gigi Hadid Matte Lipstick- Taura

Maybelline New York Gigi Hadid collection is recently launched in India and I wanted to try atleast one shade as soon as possible. There are 6 lipsticks divided in two categories.

I got the nude one which is Taura and it is from East Cost Glam Collection.

PRICE- Rs 550/-

Now coming to the formula it’s really creamy matte formula. I just loved the way it glided on my lips.

Staying power is around 4 hours for good. Now coming to the main thing which is color. I have medium toned skin (wheatish complexion) and this shade is really tricky. It will look good on medium to fair but it can wash out medium to dark complexion.

It’s just a perfect nude which is good for no makeup look. Well I wanted something like this so I am quite happy.

Note- pictures below are without any filter and in natural light.

Rating- 8/10

I will recommend it to medium to fair skin beauties who are looking for a subtle nude shade.
