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.

DSC05421

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

 

 

 

 

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??

 

 

 

 

 

Maybelline Colossal Super Black Kajal-Review & Comparison with The Colossal

These days I’m getting pretty obsessed with kohl and kajal’s. If you noticed my few previous review post are all about eye makeup products. Not that I’m complaining.It’s such a fun  to play with products and the contented outcome from all the eotd’s.Btw thank you so much for all the love you showered on my INSTAGRAM pictures. It’s one of  the best platform to share your work instantly and getting prompt feedbacks.

12801440_10154657000613289_445586804808970363_n

Maybelline O Maybelline It’s difficult to keep up pace with your so frequent launches.At Least please give us time to properly try and  experiment your recent products.I think no other brand is as quick and updated like yours.And yet again you did a fabulous job by adding “The colossal Kajal Super Black” in the kohl series.More than diamonds I think “Kajal’ is indian girl’s best friend. For us “more is less”.

DSC05247

The Super Black belongs to the extended family of Colossal.But more refined , more black, more pigmented, more intense and super expensive.I have no clue why they have hiked its price to almost the double.Any how let me introduce you with the wow’s first.

DSC05244

Packaging, precisely the colour is exactly opposite to the yellow colossal but more wider.Quantity of product is same.It a twister pen so very easy to handle.True to their claim, it’s super smooth as it contains oil base pigments.The cache is the formula.With light absorbing pigments , it delivers more blackness than its predecessor.Two strokes are sufficient to get the desired effect.

It’s waterproof and did not smudge for good 6 hours.Even after washing your face, its fragments lingers.I use baby oil to clean off all the remnants.Use it on your upper lid as eyeliner and smudge it with earbud to get the smokey eye effect.If you want your kohl to last long , use any black eyeshadow above and you are good for another few hours.

DSC05243

For me the big let down is the price. There should be some reasonable hike in the prices.INR 300 is not at all justified with the quantity or quality.It is hands down better then the colossal but it’s way expensive. Even the quantity is less at this price.It will only last a month or less if used everyday.

DSC05267

Battle of The colossal and The Colossal Super Black 

Staying power of the super black is almost the same as of The colossal(Yellow)

Super Black gets less smudged as compared to the colossal.

The intensity of the two kajals are almost the same.

The colossal is on drier side and super black is more oil textured which settles with blink of an eye.

The colossal tends to get break in between but its not the case with super black which is a brownie point.

Super black is 300 INR and Colossal is 200 INR.

12801154_10154656990968289_3241646046442986320_n

 

Last words

The colossal super black is better overall but price is a showdown. Honestly there is not a huge difference in the two and i would wait for the sale period to get my hands on this one.Otherwise there is no downside of the product.Texture, pigmentation, intensity are all spot on.

Rest as it says” Each to their own”

Ratings: 4.2/5

 

Cool toned Eye makeup with Berry Lips-Video

         “May the wings of your eyeliner always be even”

Colours Of Incolor Cosmetics-Review

                      “The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you”

Holla Everyone

Today we had sprinkle of rain and it hollered onset of spring.It’s the season of colour bright and sunny.Everything is bathed in sunlight.Buds blooming, leaves dancing and trees swaying with the winds rhythm.Its such a breathtaking picture all around.And that reminds me of my new discovery in beauty products.A brand with so much colours , intensity, versatility, economical and consumer friendly.

The brand Incolor presents one of their finest range of cosmetics.It offers finest range of products for face, eyes, skin, hands, lips.The company is a local brand and you would not find much on internet as well.But the products are available online on FLIPKART and SNAPDEAL.I got few of their products (alot) ranging from blush to lipliners to eyeshadows.I have posted a picture on my instagram handle and few of you asked me some relevant question.So i thought of doing a detailed post.

First let’s have a glimpse of all the stuff i got.

12744089_10154632536028289_6858671863978391433_n

So now you can imagine my excitement with all that stuff.I know the brand does nit have much presence and even the availability is an issue.Only either your local shops stock these or you can buy it online.The company really needs to work on their marketing .You would be amazed no product from the range goes beyond 350 INR.Ist it droolworthy??

12743709_10154632537188289_5988931973764272820_n

LIPLINERS: They have got such amazing shades almost in all required colours for your lips.These are retractable pens which are smooth and super easy to work with.They do not get dry & niether makes your lips chapped afterwards.At 175 INR, they are extremely affordable and can give some of the drugstore brands run for their money.I have used these in some of my videos if you want to check upon them.

12743626_10154632537093289_25320252007172130_n

12742674_10154632720333289_873306732746232305_n

Coloured Eyeliner Pencils: Will you believe  if i say they works far better than the Lakme Eyeconic kohl’s.Effortless application and intense colour payoff.There are no clumps and if you don’t rub yours eyes, it stays for as long as you want.True that!!Easy to sharp and can have the smudged smokey effect with your earbud. Price is 275 INR but totally worth your penny.

12745994_10154632536303289_3796559817585593883_n

12742143_10154632720258289_3866340603452175569_n

Liquid Coloured Liners: My holy Grail liners.Few days back i wanted to shoot a new video for Valentines and was looking for pink eyeliners which are so much hot trend these days.To my horror not even a single brand have this colour in their range.Even Mac has failed.And thats when i discovered the pink beauty.Does it resembles liners from maybelline hyper glossy range?.Along with the packaging they works as good. Yet to try the brown though.Price: 215 INR. Yes cheaper then the maybelline and the colour range is phenomenal

Blush Symphony -This the prettiest blush i have come across till now.Peach, pink  & shimmery, it took my breath away.Single stroke gives a immaculate payoff.You don’t need to pack them off like some other blushes from good brands. Have you tried the blush from maybelline fit me series.they are dud and expensive.This one at 350  INR is your perfect deal.

12744282_10154632720398289_4152635813470122407_n

Single Eyeshadows: The first thing attracted me was the cute packaging.But for me It was  rocket science to open them. I have got these four shades the  brick,lime green, regal green and royal blue. You can see the payoff of lime green in my last video with halo effect.Rest ones are yet to try but they are soft, nicely grounded , matte shades, gratifying payoff and super cheap.At 165 INR they deserves standing ovation.

12744584_10154632536243289_1143715401927466866_n

So this is pretty much my thought about them. For the downside, I would say the availability is the lowest point.You can list down many more negatives but then its alocal brand with so much affordable prices and honestly few of the products are far better work than the known ones.Just they don’t do enough publicity/marketing, it does not mean the brand is dud.

                                 You need to use them to Believe in them!!

PS: Its not a paid post!! As i said earlier I ‘ would rather be honest than impressive.
