Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Asia (077) Swatches+Review

Hey Dolls!

I recenty discovered this nudish pretty pink 'my lips but better' lipstick. This is Rimmel's Lasting Finish lipstick in the shade 077 Asia. I promise I didn't pick this up because I'm an Asian, 'twas pure coincidence ;)

The formula of Rimmel's lipsticks have generally never ceased to impress me. This lasting finish lipstick is great as well. It feels rich and creamy on the lips, totally nourishing. In spite of its creamy texture it lasts quite long and doesn't get messy. It sits on the lips comfortably :)

Asia is a nudish pink shade with slight brown undertones. This is the type of nude lipstick I wouldn't think twice before wearing as it does not make me look pale and washed out. I love sporting this with everyday simple makeup looks and it nicely complements smokey eyes as well.

I would give this lipstick a 5/5 for its formula, longevity and of course the shade itself. This range of Lasting Finish lipsticks come with many other lovely shades to choose from. Reasonably priced at INR 250/- what more could one ask for?
Highly recommended!

Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette: Review+Giveaway

Hey Dolls!

I just jumped into the bandwagon myself and got this ah-so-gorgeous Tartelette eyeshadow palette by Tarte Cosmetics. All I can say is I am so glad i did, as it is totally worth all the hype and more! ˆ_ˆ 

The palette comes with 12 gorgeous matte eyeshadows.  Most of the colors in this palette are neutral with a few bit warm and cool shades. The color selection is just fantastic! There are neutral colors that can be worn everyday for simple looks, also work great as transition colors. Then there are lovely rich dark shades to give depth and smokiness to the eyes.

The eyeshadows range from light pastel shades to taupe and soft browns and berry toned pinks to dark browns. There is one black shade called Fashionista and I must say it is the best blackest black eyeshadow I've ever owned, superb! 
The eyeshadows are finely milled, extremely pigmented and blend really well. They have amazing color pay off with almost zero fallout and last on my lids for 8+ hours. There is not one single bad thing I have to say about this palette. Though it is slightly expensive ($44 per palette), with such lovely everyday colors, it is totally worth it!

As a token of thanks to all my blog readers and Youtube subscribers I am giving away one of these Tartelettes. All you need to do is to be a follower of this blog and then click on the picture below to enter the giveaway. 

Good Luck :)

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm

Hey Dolls!

I am a sucker when it comes to BB Creams! So far, Asian BB creams have done it for me all the way! I've tried several non-Asian BB Creams like Revlon, Maybelline, Lakme, Kiehl's etc, but all in vain! Today I'm going to share my thoughts about the Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm with you. 

What it claims:

It comes in an expensive looking brown tube with a pointed squeeze-out dispenser.

The formula is creamy but not thick or greasy. It feels lightweight and is quite easy to blend into the skin. It tends to dry up pretty quickly while applying so you need to work fast. This factor reminds me of the Maybelline BB Cream which also feels the same during application. 

This BB cream claims to hydrate, prime, perfect, protect and treat the skin. It does not claim to give coverage like most Asian BB creams. True to its words, this BB cream provides very low to no coverage at all! It merely promises to give you a better looking Naked skin. 
When I got this, only the medium shade was available, which is almost translucent when freshly applied but in an hour or two it tends to oxidise and look slightly orange-y on me. However, UD has recently introduced two more- Naked Light and Naked Dark- shades as well. 

With the UD Naked Skin BB cream, a little definitely does not go a long way. You need quite a lot of product for the whole face due to its runny texture that seeps into the skin rather quickly! I did not see much of a noticeable difference after using this on my face except for a very slight blurring effect. It covered my pores and blurred out fine lines but only to a minor degree! It has a matt finish but my T Zone starts shining through in an hour or so! This cream contains only SPF 20 and since I use glycolic acid based skincare products this is super low! I need atleast a 30-50 SPF sunscreen to protect me from the sun's harmful rays! 
For me a BB cream is all about providing coverage and making my skin look flawless without being as heavy as a foundation. However this Naked Skin BB cream does not do that! It feels like you have nothing on your skin and at the same time improves the appearance of it slightly. Thus it would be suitable only for you beauties with already beautiful/flawless skin who prefer very natural, no makeup-looks. I hardly find myself reaching out for this as it is not hydrating enough for a moisturiser, not remarkable as a primer, and is very low on SPF! Using this would just be an extra layer on top of my normal routine and this is something I do not prefer considering how oily my skin can get. I reach out to this only on days I want to give my skin a break and apply no makeup at all. As for all the 8 weeks lifting and anti-ageing claims, I do not use this regularly to see such results. 
For a whopping $35 for 35 ml of product, I do not see myself repurchasing this again. 
Have you tried this BB Cream? What did you think of it?
