L’oreal Color Riche Balm | Review

Loreal color riche lip balm

I love lip balms and use them every single day. However I don’t own any tinted lip balm so when I walking at my nearest target beauty aisle I saw L’oreal Color Riche Balm on sale for like $2 I just couldn’t pass this so I ended up getting one in the shade Caring Coral. It’s just nice to add a little bit of color to your lips via lip balm when you don’t want to apply a lipstick.

My lips are pretty dry and cracked up all the time and as its getting colder I prefer an intense lip balm to keep my lips smooth and hydrated. The formula of this is exactly like a lip balm, very nourishing and moisturizing on your lips. It glides on easily without any patchiness or dryness. On applying it is very moisturizing and gives kind of a glossy finish but without being sticky on your lips which I really like. However, the color doesn’t show off.  The color payoff is bad and it doesn’t show on my lips. There is just teeny tiny bit of color on application which will not be shown up on pigmented lips. I got pretty pigmented lips so color dint show up at all as I was hoping but none the less I was pretty impressed by its moisturizing power and keeping my lips hydrated. I have used this prior to my lipstick application and love the way my liquid lipsticks glides making it more comfortable throughout the day.

Loreal color riche lip balm review

I love the packaging. It looks really luxurious. It comes in a bullet form like any other lipstick and love the gold bullet with a cap which is matches the shade. I don’t recommend to the ones with pigmented lips and I am not sure how it will look on non-pigmented lips if that makes sense.

The actual price of this is $6-$8 but I got for $2 which was a great steal but however I will not repurchase this or any other shade.

Have you ever tried this? Which is your favorite lip balm? Thanks for reading!

 

 

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.

My Review:

Toners are a must for everyday skin care regime. A toner should be used at least twice a day. I like to use every morning and night. Recently, I came across The Body Shop Vitamin E Toner and so far I love it. It hydrates my dry skin and makes it feel smooth. I use this toner every morning after shower and at night post cleansing. It is so gentle and refreshing. My skin doesn’t feel dry after applying this. It definitely adds more moisture to my skin leaving it feeling less dry.I also like to use this toner as after lotion on my upper lip post waxing. The redness around my upper lip which causes by waxing vanishes within few minutes once I use this toner. It really soothes and calms my skin.

The consistency of this toner is little thick than water. It feels like a gel oil toner but once applied the toner completely gets absorbed into your skin which makes skin more hydrating and fresh.

There is very little fragrance and it smells more like a baby lotion but it disappears within few minutes.

Lastly, about the packaging it comes in a plastic bottle with a tight cap but still looks nice. I like to put this toner in my small spray bottle and just spritz all over my face. I also carry this in my handbag  at times when I am out in sun. I just spray little bit of product all over the face to get a healthy looking skin and feel fresh throughout the day.
