October 2016 Favorites

Time just flies!! We are almost in the year end and October month just flew by with so many Indian festivals. I love this festive time where all friends and family come together.  So this past festive month I used a lot of makeup and some of them have been my favorites because they never disappoint no matter what. I love putting these posts together and thinking back through the month to remember which products I used obsessively.

MAC Studio Fix Foundation:  This is my Holy Grail foundation. I know I can rely on this product completely as this particular never fail to impress me. This gives such a flawless coverage and hides all the dark spots and also conceals dark spots. Its medium to full coverage and can be build for more coverage without looking cakey.  Click here  for full review.

L’oreal Pro-Matte Gloss:  This is in the shade Aphrodite Kiss and its gorgeous red pink color. It’s not exactly matte as it leaves kind of a glossy look but it’s so comfortable to wear. I loved the shade and the formula.

PIXI  Makeup Spray: This is been my recent favorite setting spray. I love the fact that it has green tea in it and also use this toner at times for refreshing feel.  It can be used before or after makeup and works like a magic. Click here for full review.

Maybelline Color sensational Creamy Matte in TOUCH OF SPICE

MAybelline Touch of Sice

Maybelline Touch Of Spice

I have been hunting for a good neutral matte lipstick (not a liquid lipstick though) which I can wear everyday and which also feels comfortable. I love Maybelline Creamy Matte lipstick in the shade Craving Coral and I used that a lot this past summer so I thought I will purchase another shade from the same range and got this beautiful neutral shade Touch of Spice.

As the name suggest it creamy matte. Touch of Spice is a beautiful warm mauve pink neutral shade which will look good on every skin tone. The formula is creamy buttery and smooth to apply. It looks completely matte on your lips but feels really comfortable. There is no drying or flakiness whatsoever. It glides easily on lips and gives an opaque finish in one swipe. These are pigmented and you can build the intensity on how you prefer. If you don’t eat with it, the color will stay on without cracking or bleeding for a good 4 to 6 hours. With eating though, you may have to retouch after as it will fade and may bleed on the outside of your lipstick. While retouching it doesn’t look like you have applied layers of lipsticks. It still looks subtle and beautiful. These lipsticks give a feeling like there is no lipstick on your lips but yet there is color on your lips. It’s really comfortable on lips and for everyday neutral look or no makeup look this particular shade is just gorgeous.

The packaging is simple and very much travel friendly. The outer plastic comes in a dark grey matte look like plastic and the sticker on the bottom shows the shade name and shade number. The lid is super tight that you can just throw in your bag and you are good to go.

I already have one shade from this range which is Craving Coral and you can read my thoughts here and this is my second lipstick of different shade from this range. Overall, I find the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes worth getting. If you’re on a hunt for a matte lipstick that won’t dry the lips, Maybelline Creamy Matte is a great choice!
