Project Polish 75 'W7'

Hello peeps,

I am back with another pretty yet untried polish. This one is from an English brand called W7...unfortunately not available in India.

Did I ever mention I loved white milky based polishes ? Yes I did ? Well, I am gonna say it again :p I LOVE white based glitters :D


Meet W7 Lava Flow...white crelly base with red and black small hex glitters.



The best part about this polish is that it takes only 2 coats to be opaque :D



I have used this a couple of times now and have gotten so many compliments already :D

What do ya think girlies ?? Lemme know below :)

Maybelline New York Superstay 14HR lipstick in 'Please Stay Plum' swatch & review

So the new Maybelline New York 14HR Superstay lipsticks are already creating a wave in the Indian market. I have been reading a couple of reviews about them on other blogs and already had a definite picture in my mind prior to using the lipstick myself. But boy, was I surprised when I had it on my lips ?

Project Polish 75 'Maybelline Colorama'

Hiya lovely ladies,

How's everyone been doing ? Stupid cold winds and rains are totally ruining my mood these day...I long for summer now lol

On to our business ;) Today its two very pretty polishes from Maybelline Colorama. This is one brand that has really cool colors at affordable prices !!

Coral Chic, Absinto


Coral Chic is a sheer coral nail polish with the slightest hint of golden pearl...A pain to build, even at 3 coats.



Absinto is a cool mint green with hidden green shimmer...hidden coz it is not easily seen in the bottle and definitely doesn't tranlate on the nail. Pretty at 2 coats :)


How did you guys like these ? Let me know below :)

Project Polish 75 'Faces Cosmetics' Part 1

Hello polish lovers,

Mattes are quite some rage right now and 'Faces Cosmetics' have launched a good range of matte nail polishes recently. I got 7 of them but only 3 have been swatched in this post :)

             
Champagne Shower Matte, Candyfloss matte, Phoebe Blue Matte




Champagne Matte is a shimmery purple, drying to a matte finish but still showing of the awesome pale shimmer....goes opaque in 2 coats :)






Candyfloss Matte is a matte candy pink...shown here is 3 coats.





Last one for today is Phoebe Blue Matte...its a bright cobalt blue, a bit darker then in the pics...this is 3 coats again.



I realized plain mattes don't excite me :/ What about you ??

M.A.C Powder Blush 'Small Vanity' swatch & review

Hi girls,

I am soo late in posting reviews for the products of the MAC Glamour Daze collection. Forgive me, I just got wrapped into the polish project mess and then it was so much fun, that I got totally distracted from reviews. Not to mention, showing only swatches is so much more easier :p

Anyways, I have finally gotten to take some pictures for the gorgeous powder blush from the M.A.C Glamour Daze Collection called 'Small Vanity'. These holiday beauties are all covered in glossy black cases instead those boring matte blacks :D






MAC describes Small Vanity as dirty rose tan. It looks like it has a hint of coral in the pan but not when it goes on the cheek.It does have a shot of fine golden shimmer which doesn't show up much on the face.




 


Small Vanity is a satin textured blush which makes it smooth in application and easy in blending. It wears for as long as 10 hours even though my skin is oily. It is so pigmented that you need only a light swirl of brush in the pan. What you see in the face pics, is 3 swipes to show a proper swatch. IRL, a single swipe is all you need.








The price of Small Vanity is higher by Rs.140 then the regular blushes due to it being limited edition :/

Price: Rs.1490/6 gms

Rating: 4.5/5 happi :)


What are your views on this blush ? Lemme know below :)
