Out Of The Box NOTD & LOTD & EOTD

To live a creative life, we must loose our fear of being wrong

I believe every girl has that creative bone in her.Give her a sack and she will turn that into a couture. Being an Ex Niftian , experimenting in all  fields from kitchen to home decor to even makeup, I have never been shy of exploring my creative side.Yes i was always the out of the box girl.Nothing ever is straight for me.I love making simple things complex.

And so how can the makeup artist in me is unaffected by this syndrome. There is that compulsive streak in me which works overtime to get that different desired look.Mixing lipsticks has always been my forte.That’s what you call nowadays Ombre lips.But honestly i have tried and tested this long  ago.Same with the nails.My instagram account is full of my silly experiments.I know they are not very practical but a girl has to do what she has to do .Right??

Sharing with you some of my crazy out of the box Notd,Lotd,Eotd.Hope you will enjoy as much as i do..

Chambor Extreme Wear Transferproof liquid Lipstick-Review

“The most pigmented thing I ever saw is the Liquid Lipstick”

Some of you may not be aware of the new launch from Chambor.They just have unveiled  a new range of Liquid Lipsticks called The extreme wear Transfer Proofs yesterday.Liquid lipsticks seems to be all rave at the moment and these do not fall short. Exclusively available at chambor boutiques,Parcos & Lifestyle stores across India. While malling today I saw their huge billboard across Lifestyle store in my city.And me being me had to have a look. Chambor has come up with a full blown line of liquid lipstick with 18 shades in total ranging from nudes to bolds to vampy.

12805935_10154683989133289_783861807723923170_n

There is nothing much on either on internet or on their site.I’m glad mine will be the first review.And i will be precise and too the point.

1931012_10154683963578289_4152274588138104006_n

 

Price:845 INR Expensive for 6gm but worth it

Packaging:Ultra cute flat rectangular tube with black embossing.Comes with a applicator wand for easy coverage.

Availability: Apart from Chambor exclusives, they are available  only at Lifestyle stores according to the SA.

Shades: 18 shades comprising neutrals to dark to gothic.You will be spoilt for choice.There is something for everyone and for every occasion.Each shade has a number instead of name.

Swatches: Extremely pigmented in just one swipe.All the swatches have only one To & fro swipe.

Formula: Super saturated formula with transferproof and smear resistant coverage in just one application.They have semi solid consistency which set very quickly.Unlike some other brands, you don’t need to worry on hurrying the application.It gives you enough time to apply properly without drying.The formula is weightless and really light.There is no tackiness and due to high on pigmentation, you won’t get guck.Texture is ultra matte which gives great coverage without any breakouts.

True to companies claim, it is smudge proof.After applying for eight hours, it lasted through  drinking, eating and sweating and without budging. Ultra tenacious and thoroughly pigmented, the lipsticks are worth their price.

How to apply:  Due to matte formula, exfoliating your lips with a good balm before applying is MUST.Apply a heavy layer of lip balm for few minutes and let it soak in a while.The application can be tricky.If you don’t have a steady hand, I would suggest using a matching lip liner and define your lips.Then use the lipstick wand and fill up.Or you can use a lipstick brush  and follow the natural movement of your lips to create a more defined line.

How to remove: Removal of liquid lipstick is as tricky as its application.You cant just rub off with makeup removal or washing your face.The trick is to apply vaseline all over your lips, massage it and let it absorb for few seconds.Take a smooth washcloth or cotton and gently remove the remnants.It will then come off effortlessly.

12791079_10154683963643289_7241005364219055038_n

Precautions: Don’t forget to apply good moisturizer or lip balm afterwards and ensure they are properly hydrating.You don’t need your lips to be chapped or hurtful in the morning.

The shade I bought is No. 402 which is a mix of pale pink nude.This will be my everyday go to lip shade. The colour resembles the barbie shade which instantly brightens my face.Perfect for day look and everyday use.

XFACTOR: The best part is the stunning colour range.Most of the shades especially the neutrals screams sophistication.

LOW FACTOR: Availability will be a issue.

They should have christened each shade with  a name rather than just number.

Lips tends to get dry at the end of the day.

Ratings: 4.5/5

Will I buy again? 

YES & YES after all

                                                            It’s not hoarding If It’s Lipsticks

 

 

 

 

Shades Of Nykaa Nailpaints

                             If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies

As they say change is the flavour of life.Diversity in all aspects of your life brings lots of salt and sugar.And same goes with my diversified interest in beauty world.

How many of you religiously takes care of your nails?Remember the last time you have pampered your nails, indulged in some creative manicure.I know going to the salon regularly is a far fetched idea.In today’s rat race, nobody has the time or patience.And it certainly cost a bomb.So why not appease ourselves with easy , creative and affordable mani.

DSC05289

Till now as beauty blogger, i have tested and experienced almost all drugstore brands in nailpaints.By far Maybelline scored the hit spot.But that was before I tried the NYKAA inhouse nail enamels.Such stunning mix of shades.They took my breath away.Each shade screams sophistication.The pastel collection are to die for.

Packaging is simple with a sturdy bottle but perfect for travel purpose..At 149 INR , its cold on your pocket.Quality of the brush is supreme.Long and easy to handle.The patented two-fold plasticizer prevents chipping. Contains a UV filter to prevent discoloration and yellowing.

12809536_10154675107588289_5651470009349331941_n

There are about 30 shades available in three different categories.My personal favourite is the pastel ones.From mommy to working women to college goers, all shades are perfect and comfortable to any age group.Bless the colour designer, who came up with these subtle yet chic shades.

These high reflection nailpaints delivers one stroke coverage.Double strokes definitely adds up to their longevity.Apply some top coat for a smooth mattifying finish.They are non glossy and gel like which prettify your nails instantly giving some cosmopolitan vibes.They dries up instantly and spare you for doing red carpet shakes.;).

 

I picked up two shades Lychee Delight and Mint Meringue.They are the most enchanting colours from the lot.They have garnered ample amount of compliments  already.My nails never looked so beautiful and subconsciously  my hands danced more than me.The formula is super encouraging as it last for at least 4 days without chipping.They have turned my  brittle nails into stronger self and healthy.

Ombre Nail Art DIY

             Imagination Is the Only Imitation Of Nail Art!!

These days nail art has become a popular phenomena  with girls around the world.From Movie star to home makers nails, it has shown a tremendous liking everywhere. I was not into much nail decorating as it surly requires lot of patience and steady hand.But finally the fever has took a toll on me.Being a beauty youtuber, you need to use your fingers as your main tool. And if the tools are beautiful, it will make your tutorial more engrossing for viewers.

12790981_10154667167928289_4451169104968804070_n

So this is going to be my first nail art post but will follow more in future.It’s going to be a simplest one with the “Ombre Nails” which is hottest trend these days.

DSC05282

 

Start with choosing your nails paints.I would suggest lightest to darkest shades.Nails should be free of any nail enamels and dirt.Shape them to your required size with a use of a filer.

12814230_10154667167573289_6341566171482742982_n

Choose the lightest shade as your base coat.The coat needs to be thicker towards your cuticles.For ombre effect, generally white nails polish is used as your base.But you can use any lightest tint from the lot.Let the first coat dry before applying the second one for creating clear canvas for ombre.

Take your triangular makeup sponge and cut into two pieces.Smaller the better as it will be easy to handle on your nails.Its upto you to choose as many shades but three is the perfect number to get the desired effect.Dip the sponge in water before applying any colour and rinse it. It will  prevent the sponge to absorb too much enamel.

12805977_10154667167478289_2405656062691975511_n

Shake the bottles thoroughly.Now start with painting the sponge with the lightest in just a wide line. Take the medium shade and repeat the application on sponge with exactly the same size line.The darkest will be last one.There should not be any space between the three shades.Apply at least three coats of each shade for turning into a wet stamp.

DSC05286

Now with steady hand, stamp the sponge on your nail in one motion.Repeat it twice but the sponge should be stamped on the same place as earlier for preventing any mess up.Always remember the placement of sponge should be upside down so that the darkest shade paints on the outer edges of your nails.

DSC05280

Leave your nails for 10 minutes to dry and then apply the clear top coat.It will instantly mattify your nails and gives a smooth overall finish.

12821363_10154667167403289_129570313082120389_n

Last step is removing all the extra enamel around fingers and cuticles.Instead of cotton or wipes, use a pencil brush or an earbud.They will help to clean off the nail paint minutely.

 

 

I have used a mix n match nail paints from different brand.But it needs to be of good quality.Hope you are going to try this simple DIY ombre art and do share it with me on my  page 50shadesofvanitty

Also do let me know if i should embark on nail art tutorials as well??

 

 

 

 

 

Lakme-Eyeconic in Regal Green,Royal Blue & turquoise-Review

Since time immoral, Kajal has always been associated with Indian women.It’s a known to be a staple beauty products for us.I still have my infant picture with deep kohl smeared eyes which was supposed to be have medicinal value like improving vision.But now for me it has become a necessity. I just can’t cross my threshold with kohl in my eyes.

So when I heard Lakme has launched some new coloured kajal in their Eyeconic series , I just had to get my hands on them before anybody else.Yes i have a compulsive disorder.It’s been in my vanity for two weeks now but couldnt able to write a review before.But better late than never.

The packaging is similar to the black and white eyeconic.Honestly i was super disappointed with the white one.It just didn’t budge and consistency is very poor.That was the reason I was a bit putoff to buy all the three coloured eyeconics.Regal green, Royal blue and Turquoise.But in the end my innerself Goddess won.At 275 INR, its not a very expensive deal.

12744082_10154643152403289_8274884681640397721_n

Regal Green and Turquoise have a very light difference in shades.As you apply on your eyes, it looks almost the same.But the best part is you can apply them on your lower lid like kohl(as it is called) and it would not look odd.Wonderful breather from black kohl.

I love playing with them.If you follow me on instagram, you will see lots of eotd’s on my page.You can either use them as simple eyeliner, can create a smudged eye look or a base  for coloured eyeshadows. I tried to create some stunning ombre effects using these.

12744296_10154643152313289_2890677082706547510_n

The pen is a twister with slick tip which makes the application easy. Regal green is most stunning out of the lot. Its metallic texture with little bit of shimmer makes your eyes stands out.I love mix and matching them with other eye pencil just according to mood or dress i wearing. Turquoise is also a stunner.But Royal blue is a deal breaker.It does not show up no matter how many swipes you apply.I had to put a liquid liner to get the desired effect.I would rather recommend blue from maybelline colossol.

12744346_10154643152123289_1553240841434225844_n

There longevity is quite good comparatively and stay put for 8 hours at least.A must have for beginners as one can use them to perfect their eyeliner application.I would certainly recommend them for working girls as variation everyday can boost your confidence and break that monotonous look.

12745978_10154643268178289_157537121712118759_n

This eotd i have created with Royal blue and regal green givinga ombre effect on the upper lid and turquoise to my water line.
