Lakme Absolute - Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse (Golden Medium)

Product Description:
Mousse foundation in a spherical container 






What I like about the product?

  • Texture is smooth
  • Blends well
  • Gives a medium coverage
  • Lasts for about 6 to 8 hours
  • Packaging is good 
  • No wastage like you have with bottles or pumps
  • Great for humid climates
  • SPF 8

What I don't like about the product?
  • Absolutely nothing that I do not like
My personal view:
Take a bit of product on your fingers or on a brush and blend it in to the skin. The mousse is a bit powdery so you do not have to use a powder.

Price: Rs. 700

Almay Smart Shade- Perfect & Correct Primer

Product Description:
Purple and green colour primer in a spiral shape in a pump tube.




Before Primer


After Primer

What I like about the product?

  • The packaging
  • Quantity
  • Adds a light glossy tint to the skin
What I don't like about the product?
  • Hardly corrects the skin
  • The green is too sheer to hide redness
  • The purple and green combination does not help
Who is it suited for?
  •  People with mild imperfections
My personal view:
If you want to apply your foundation and need a base to it , then this is your pick. The packaging resembles the Stila Colour Correcting Primer.

Himalaya Herbals- Kajal

Product Description:
A black herbal kajal in a retractable tube.








What I like about the product?

  • Herbal formula
  • Soothing for the eyes
  • Can be applied on the upper eyelids and lower waterline
  • Very pigmented
  • Nice smell of camphor
  • One swipe is enough
  • Price
What I don't like about the product?
  • Smudges too much
  • No ingredient list
Who is it suited for?
Those who enjoy using kohl in the eyes but do not want chemical/ synthetic kajals.

My personal view:
Apply the kajal and dust some loose powder to prevent it from smudging and becoming oily. It lasts longer on the upper eyelids than on the waterline.

Essence Eyeliner Pen (Extra Long Lasting)

Product Description:
Black eyeliner pen with a felt tip.

What I like about the product?
  • Very Pigmented
  • Price is reasonable
  • 1 or 2 swipes are enough
  • Precise tip for accuracy
  • Easy to use
What I don't like about the product?
  • Fades on the eye after a few hours

  • For those who are not good at handling liquid eyeliners
My personal view:
If you have been trying to do the winged eyeliner look and do not have a steady hand for it, then this is your best bet. For best results prep your eyelids with a primer or foundation/concealer.

Maybelline New York Fit Me Bronzer (Golden Tan)

Product Description:
A powder bronzer with a brush. This one is in medium bronze.












What I like about the product?

  • A useful and nice brush
  • Ingredient list
  • Lasts for a fairly long time

What I don't like about the product?

  • Needs a few swipes
  • A bit too powdery
My personal view:
For a good application first use the brush provided and draw concrete lines, then use a fluffy brush and blend it out. This can also be used as a skin colour base eye shadow, yep I have personally tried out this trick
and it works!!

L'oreal True Match - Golden Beige

Product Description:
This one is in golden beige (D3-W3) with SPF 17. It is a water based foundation with a runny texture. 





What I like about the product? 

  • High SPF
  • You can build up the foundation
  • Medium coverage
  • Suitable for oily skin as it is water based
  • Only a small drop of product can cover the entire face
  • Comes with a pump  
  • Begins to match your skin after about 10 minutes
What I don't like about the product?
  • Expensive (In Australia)
  • No ingredient list
  • Takes a while to blend in

My personal view:
I personally use this product during the day because of its high SPF. Blend in the product with a brush or your fingers and do not forget to moisturize underneath and dab your compact after application. It would look a little powdery in the beginning but it will sit beautifully on the skin after a few minutes. It has yellow undertones and is great for Indian and Asian skin tones.

Ratings: 7/10

Quantity: 30 ml

Price: AUD $30
