I have used so many different mascaras but never came across such a classy looking mascara. So the item I am talking about is 'Kiko Milano Standout Volume Mascara'.

Price - £9.90

Review


I got the waterproof variant of Kiko Milano Standout Volume Mascara. Now, how gorgeous is the tube. This comes in a classy metallic tube. Even the shape of the tube is so amazing. I am so impressed with the packaging of the mascara let alone the mascara itself.

It comes with a huge wand which easily separates each lash and adds loads of volume. Texture of the mascara is quite creamy making it easy to cover each lash. It definitely enhances and accentuates the lashes. It makes a huge difference to the lashes by adding volume and curling the lashes.

I am in love with this mascara and would definitely be repurchasing it. I would give 4/5 stars.

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour - Slipper Orchid & Red Jade

When it comes to lip products, MAC is usually the winner. I got two shades of MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour, one is 'Slipper Orchid' and other is 'Red Jade'. I fell in love with this liquid lipsticks the moment I used them.

Price - €22.00

Review
MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour comes in a transparent plastic tube with a black cap. There is nothing fancy about the packaging. Due to transparent tube, its easy to locate the shade in a drawer.

Honestly, this is the best liquid lipstick I have ever used. I cant praise it enough. First of all, I always check how pigmented a lipstick is. I dislike dilute concentration of pigment. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour is so pigmented that you need a single swipe to fully cover your lips. Staying power is also amazing. After a few seconds, it goes completely matte on lips. After a meal and a few cups of coffee you will notice the lipstick peeling off from inner side of lips.

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour - Red Jade

Both the shades are my favourite. Depending on what I am wearing, I apply both the shades every other day.

I would highly recommend these liquid lipsticks to everyone.

I will give 4.5/5 stars to these.

L’Oreal Paris Matte Lip Paint – 201 Hollywood beige

I realized, lately I have been buying dark lip shades, so decided to go for a nude shade for everyday wear or office wear. So, I picked up L’Oréal Paris Matte Lip Paint in the shade 201 Hollywood beige. Read on to learn about my experience with this.

L’Oreal Paris Matte Lip Paint – 201 Hollywood beige


Price - €9.99

Product details (As given on Boots website)
Introducing Nudist Matte Lip Paints, a collection of trending nude liquid lip colours in a velvety, matte finish. Now you can nail the nude trend, with 5 shades containing ultra-saturated pigments that last up to 8 hours.
No flaking, no caking, no drying out. Our slanted teardrop shaped applicator allows for precise application for a flawless matte pout.

Review
This comes in a plastic tube which has same color as that of liquid lipstick which is quite handy. I did not find slanted teardrop shaped applicator to be especially helpful for precise application as they claim. It’s just like any other applicator.

L’Oreal Paris Matte Lip Paint – 201 Hollywood beige
This shade 201 Hollywood beige is quite good for everyday look. It’s a pink coral shade which would go with fair and medium fair skin tones really well. It’s one of those shades which balances out dramatic eye makeup.

I am really disappointed with this L’Oréal product. Nowadays every brand is coming up with matte liquid lipstick almost every day. With such a high competition, Loreal came out with this. First of all. It does not give full coverage. So girls with pigmented lips, stay away from this. Secondly, it’s not transfer proof. Just have a glass of water and lipstick fades. Brands like Maybelline have come up with 24 hr superstay matte lipstick and here we have Loreal which didn’t even manage to have 2 hr stay.

I am really disappointed with L’Oréal this time. This is the worse liquid lipstick I have used so far.
I going with 1/5 stars.

Superliner is a liquid eyeliner in a special sponge tipped pen for the creation of fine lines or thick, sultry flicks. Colour is applied with precision and ease and dries without smudging.

Review
It comes in black plastic tube which looks quite elegant. Firstly, you have to shake the tube really well for intense black color. This is something I learned after regular use. Once dry, it gives a completely matte finish.

I really liked the sponge tip applicator. It makes the application quite smooth and easy. It enables you to have control over the tip hence chances of making mistake are less. But you have to be fast otherwise the tip dries up quickly.

Bourjois Volume Reveal Mascara - Waterproof Black


One product which intensifies the look is ‘mascara’. It is an absolute essential item for every women. Bourjois is coming up with new products every now and then. So far I have loved Bourgois products. Bourjois Volume Reveal Mascara comes in two variants - Waterproof and non-waterproof. I opted for the waterproof one because my eyes are sensitive and can be watery anytime.
