Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream

Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream

If someone would ask what skincare products or brands do you recommend for sensitive skin? I'd invariably say french skincare is the solution. La Roche Posay in particular. The magic that french skincare does to your skin is, in my opinion, very hard for other skincare brands to match up. And probably it's why the french skincare brands are so expensive.

In every winter season for the past four years, I guess, I have to deal with my skin turning super sensitive with a lot of visible redness and irritation. But ever since discovering La roche posay's thermal spring water and their moisturizer, I always had this thought in my mind that I can fall back upon these products during the times when my skin turns sensitive.

And just when I was happy to realize that, La roche posay decided to leave India.

Saying that I felt disappointed would be an understatement because it is very difficult to find skincare products that can tackle the inflammatory condition of sensitive skin. And La Roche Posay does it so well. Their products are saviors for people with uncomfortable sensitive skin.

My thoughts on Inglot Jennifer Lopez Gel Eyeliner

I have probably been the last one to hop onto gel eyeliners when it comes to my makeup scene. I would see people use gel eyeliners, I would see people talk about them, I would read about them on blogs and magazines but somehow I just didn't seem to try them out for myself. The liquid and the pen eyeliners have been my companions for as long as I can remember. I'd always purchase them despite knowing that a gel eyeliner does make the process of drawing a wing a little bit easier.

I stumbled across Inglot's Jennifer Lopez Gel Eyeliner while browsing for makeup products online. Considering it is a whopping Rs.1300 eyeliner, I would have not invested in it had it not been for a Nykaa gift card on the verge of expiry. And Inglot is a very well known professional makeup brand. Makeup artists all around the world use and rave about their products. So I didn't even think that this liner will fall short on any of my expectations. But it did. Yes, and you will find out why as you further proceed in my review.

Kiko Milano 3D Hydra Lip Gloss (Golden Sparkle) Review

Kiko Milano Hydra 3D Lipgloss

Wasn't there a time not very long ago when matte lips were a huge rage? The matte formula took precedence over both glossy and satiny lip makeup look. The matte revolution in the makeup department of lips had made its way in every beauty junkie's heart. 

And rightfully so. 

The staying power and the color payoff from a matte lipstick are unmatched. 

Due to this, all the fascination we had with lip glosses was pushed far away. They were not trending and suddenly ceased to become a popular makeup item. During my early teens, I remember I was only obsessed with sparkly high shine juicy lip glosses. Sadly, their popularity went down and no one really seemed to be talking about them anymore.

But, gradually, I'm seeing they are finding their way back in everyone's makeup look again. I personally most of the time like a glossy sheen (the good kind...) on my lips whenever I'm wearing any lip color. What do you usually go for in your every day and in your party makeup looks? A matte lip or a glossy lip? Let me know.

Now let's talk about the Kiko Milano 3D Hydra Lipgloss (Price Rs.950) This Italian brand is not a supremely expensive one but it's not very budget-friendly either. It is somewhere in the middle. Regardless, the quality is amazing. At least that's what I can say with my little stint with few of their products.

Colorbar Flawless Full Cover Concealer (001 Velvet) Review

Colorbar flawless Full Cover Concealer Review
Colorbar Flawless Full Cover Concealer Review

Remember the days when our makeup routines were just so basic and minimalistic?  We would apply foundation, kohl, lipstick and be done with it. Fast forward to now, we have highlighters, bronzers, correctors, primers, concealers, makeup setting sprays, and so many innovative makeup tools. 

Today, it's actually hard to keep up with all the changes and the new stuff that keeps coming up in the beauty and makeup universe. 

However, if you'd ask me to pick up one product absolutely necessary in an elaborate makeup routine, it would be concealer! Okay..., I'm slightly torn between choosing a highlighter or a concealer, but then, a good makeup base is always a winner for me over a glowy highlighted makeup look.

My previous concealer, a Maybelline one was nearly over and it also became quite old. So I was on a lookout for a new one and since a few family wedding functions were lining up, investing in a good makeup concealer felt more of a need than just an impulse makeup purchase.

And so, today, I'm reviewing a concealer from the brand Colorbar. This brand has always impressed me with the quality of its makeup products, especially their base products. I have also tried an eyeshadow quad and a highlighter once from Colorbar and they were really good too.
