Anastasia Beverly Hills In Ashton | Review

You can never have too many lipsticks PERIOD J I am officially a liquid lipstick addict and recently I got this liquid lipstick from Anastasia Beverley Hills. I was so confused in trying their lipstick because I read so many places that their formula is super drying and not very comfortable but in Spring 2016 they reformulated and launched some new shades and ASHTON was one of their Spring 2016 collection. I read good reviews of their new formula so finally I got myself this gorgeous shade.

ASHTON is mid tone chestnut brown with a matte finish and this shade has been my favorite lately. This is the perfect brown/nude shade which will look flattering on all skin types. Their formula is moussey and glides on very easily and in one swipe you get a neat opaque finish with full coverage. The texture is just so velvety and this lipstick is transfer proof. It sets into flat matte finish within few seconds of application. It’s not at all drying whatsoever but however I always recommend to exfoliate your lips or apply a lip balm before applying any liquid lipstick. The lipstick stays good for more than 6 hours without fading even after eating and drinking. After 6 hours it starts fading a little so might need a retouch but otherwise this lipstick stays intact and I was totally surprised and impressed at its lasting power.

I have so many other liquid lipstick from other brands and this one from ABH is totally worth the money. The lipstick can be little pricier but worth every single penny. The packaging is just like any other liquid lipstick with a clear tube and an applicator. However I love the applicator of this particular lipstick as the wand is not too big and it’s a perfect size. I have other liquid lipstick where the wand is little too long and might get difficult it applying.

If you are crazy for liquid lipstick like me then you should definitely pick up this one and I am pretty sure none will regret this. I adore this lipstick and shade and I truly believe its universal nude shade which will look fabulous on every skin tone.

Have you used ABH liquid lipstick before? Which is your favorite liquid lipstick? I would love to know your thoughts. Thanks for reading 🙂

Best Mask Ever- Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

Aztec Indian Healing Clay Mask

Don’t you want an affordable and effective face mask which does what it claims?? Well, I have found one of the best clay mask ever and I am in totally in love with it. I have tried many face mask and there are couple of masks which I love but nothing can beat this clay mask. I never tried clay mask before and I came across this mask and read some great reviews and was instantly sold.

I have dry sensitive skin with blackheads and little bit of pores on my cheek. I have tried so many products and methods to get rid of but they just won’t go. I got this mask in a hope that my blackheads and pores problem will reduce and guess what IT DID !!  Let me tell you that this is not a pamper mask when you can put on while munching some snacks, or start your day with before work or before any date night because you don’t want to look like a red panda!

Aztec Indian Healing Clay Mask

This masks says world’s most powerful facial deep pore cleansing clay and I couldn’t agree more.  The jar says ‘ FEEL YOUR FACE PULSATE’ and indeed it does gives an intense pulsating feeling and feels like the mask is pulling out the blackheads and the clogged pores. The pulsating feeling is super cool. It can be used as bodywraps, clay baths, foot soaks and on acne as well. The jar says mix clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar and water. Stir the mixture to a smooth consistency. It has no fragrance and the texture is powdery, similar to cornflour.

Apple cider vinegar is used to balance the PH and never just use this clay with water as the mixture forms lumps. So highly suggest using apple cider vinegar. Never use metal bowls or spoons to mix this clay as it will break down the ions in the clay making it less effective and when ions are lost there is no pulling power. So use a non-metal bowl and a spoon for mixing this clay. Apply the mask and leave in on for 20 minutes. I can’t even move my lips or open my mouth when this is on my face. Wash it off with warm water. After washing I noticed some red spots on my face but then I was like wow! Blood circulation is really kicking in. The redness goes away in half hour or so hence nothing to be worried about. I then pamper my skin with a good serum and moisturizer.

I noticed my blackheads gone in just one use and my pores were less visible. I was totally amazed on how my skin looked. It felt like I had an expensive facial from a luxurious salon. My skin felt so smooth and hydrated. The blackheads were gone and getting rid of clogged pores. It just felt so good seeing my skin this way. I use this twice a week and the days when I feel my skin looks tiring and dull. It takes all the impurities out from your skin and gives a nice glow. This is the best mask I ever came across and it’s so affordable and this jar will last you forever.

I am definitely gonna use this mask for a very long time and this is the best mask I ever used. I highly recommend everyone to try this out as it’s suitable for all skin types.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara- Worth the hype?

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

I am a huge fan of mascara and I use almost every single day because I simply don’t prefer the hassle of applying of false lashes. Applying false lashes is a real struggle!! Isn’t? Who can relate? So, I always look out for mascara which gives voluminous and fuller looking lashes and one of my favorite is this Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.

I got this in deluxe size along with Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer as I was not sure how this mascara would work for me and I was not ready to splurge on mascara.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Review

This is not waterproof mascara and doesn’t claim to be so people who want waterproof mascara this one are not for you. Prior to applying mascara, I always curl up my lashes. There are days when I don’t apply mascara but still curl my lashes to give curled and more open lashes. So, I highly suggest curling your lashes first. The formula of this mascara is not so thin nor thick so there are no clumps. I like the wand size which is not bulky or sleek.  During application it doesn’t get on your eyelids or on you’re under eye area while applying on lower lashes. With 1 coat it gives very nice natural looking lashes and at 2 and 3 coats it gives pretty intense dramatic looking effect with no smudging or clumps. However, with more than 3 coats your lashes might like a spider web and might get clumped. I love the packaging. It sturdy and comes in a very pretty pink color.

Mascara is something you need to change every 3-4 months so I would suggest to get deluxe size mascara instead of wasting the product or using an expired product. I would highly suggest this mascara to everyone who want to give their lashes curled and voluminous effect and its totally worth the hype product.

PIXI Makeup Fixing Spray | Review

pixi-makeup-fixing-spray-review

As I have dry skin I’m always looking out for something hydrating on my skin when it comes to any skincare or makeup setting products.  While shopping online I came across this PIXI makeup fixing spray which contains rose water and green tea I definitely wanted to try this out. So, I went ahead and treated myself with this amazing spray.

PIXI has some really good products and can be quite expensive but totally worth it at least for this product. I was looking out for a spray which can be used for multi-purpose and this one does the job which I was looking for. It’s really effective when used before/after makeup. It works great as a primer and really extends your makeup longevity. You can also use after makeup as a setting spray to set your makeup and add a soft focus finish on your skin. Usually with my dry skin, I get patches around my nose area when I wear makeup so this definitely helps in giving me a smooth and soft finish. It also prevents makeup settling into lines. I love to use this as a toner and spritz all over my face because the Green tea and Rose water present in it helps in getting rid of that acne, blemishes and gives a clean skin with hydration.

The packaging is adorable and comes in a plastic spray bottle but very sturdy so doesn’t look cheap at all and very easy to carry in a handbag or while you travel. I love to carry this every day at work and just spritz all over my face whenever my skin feels dull and dry.

I would highly recommend this to all skin types as it’s an amazing makeup fixing spray/ toner which works great for skin and love how my skin feels and looks after using this. The only con I think its little expensive when compared to other drugstore brands.

Derma E Hydrating Day & Night Cream | Review

derma-e

Who is not concerned with it comes to your skin? Everyone wants a good moisturizer to start and end their day. Keeping your skin healthy and glowy is so important to achieve a perfect smooth canvas.  Derma E was very kind to send me their day and night cream to test out and I totally love the results.

Over the past week, I have been using this day and night cream religiously every single day. I have very dry skin and I always look out for creams which give hydration to skin and also nourishes. Derma E day cream does this job perfectly. Once I apply this moisturizer, the whole day I don’t experience any dryness on my face or around my nose area. It keeps my skin looking radiant and also I love using prior to my makeup as it gives a smooth base without any dryness. The texture of this day cream is whipped cream like and sinks into your skin easily giving you a clean, smooth and dewy looking skin.

Talking about this night cream, it’s a lightweight cream which moisturizes your skin amazingly well. The texture is same as day cream and instantly gets absorbed in the skin leaving your skin with silky finish and proper hydration. A little cream goes long way and the next morning you wake up with a radiant and plumpy looking skin. Night times are best to give your skin additional nourishment which gets lost during the day time and this cream does the perfect job. I love how my skin feels and looks the next morning. Isn’t always nice to see your skin glowy and looking healthy after you get up?? I love that feeling!!

These creams contain anti-ageing oxidants such as green tea, vitamin A and C, aloe vera which are extremely nourishing for skin and also soothes the skin. Talking about packaging, this come in glass tub which a tight lid. These are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben free, gluten free and GMO free. However these creams have a fragrance in them which is not so appealing to me but disappears soon after application

I have been using both these day and night cream for just over a week now and so far I am totally satisfied with the results. I am adding these in my daily skincare routine and see how my skin changes for better.
