NEW LAUNCH - NELF COSMETICS PERFECT LIGHTING WATERPROOF PRIMER

Recently I heard of a new brand & without giving it a thought, I decided to try some of their products on my blog. The brand was Nelf USA.When i researched profoundly about the brand, I was just awestruck with their ideology or thoughts backing the brand as they were specifically made for the interests of all women.Sharing with you peeps the idea of Nelf USA.
 
About the Brand -:
NELF Cosmetics, named after the aspiration of women to look great in four leagues i.e. NAIL, EYE, LIPS & FACE, uniquely offers a permanent collection of every day basics and on-trend shades. Known for rich pigments and high payoff in products is what places NELF in its own panache and distinguishes the line as a leader in the colossal color cosmetics industry.
Our inspiration is today's woman who believes in doing her own thing in her own terms and getting what she came here for. We at NELFusa™, by creating the wide range of make-up , just help them in doing so.
 
Why to use Primer -:
I am not a professional makeup artist. But what i have learned over the years that to ace any perfect look, a perfect base is the key. Primer is the ultimate tool to achieve a flawless look.
  • tightens pores,preventing face from becoming oily ;
  • uses less foundation, giving more use out of your face makeup;
  • fills fine lines & wrinkles ;
  • Blurs imperfections & give a radiant glow to the skin.

Ingredients-: Cyclomethicone, Squalane, Phenyl dimethicone,Tocopherol, Propylparaben.
Packaging -:
The Outer Packing is black cardboard box with red stripes.The Primer comes in a sturdy see through Glass Bottle with Black Pump Dispenser on it.
All the relevant information is printed on the outer packaging & not on the glass bottle, which makes it difficult to retain the directions provided.

How to Apply-:
Take out a small blob of primer on the palm of your hand and dot the primer section by section on the face.Start by dotting on the forehead then cheeks, chin, nose and upper neck.Apply to face with fingertips or a makeup sponge to even out the skin tones.
Wait a few seconds for the primer to dry before applying foundation.

Price -: Rs 500 for 30 ml
 
Availability -: 
My Take on the product -: Nelf Cosmetics Perfect Lighting Waterproof Primer is a crystal clear gel based primer.The texture of the primer is slightly on thicker side.It is weightless, non greasy skin & feels like silk on skin. Apply a little amount of primer on the face and then just blend it with fingertips or a beauty blender.
     It literally creates magic on the skin as it makes the face a beautiful canvas to paint or in my terms to do makeup upon. It absorbs excess sebum & makes fine lines, blemishes, visible pores diminish.It made my makeup stay for good 6-8 hours.You can clearly see the visible difference in the picture that how all the lines, pores, etc have reduced so much and the skin looks more moisturised than before.

      The primer prevent the foundation from creasing and the light-reflecting properties of it helps to create that gorgeous, dewy glow.The best part of the product is that it is Silicone Primer which prevents moisture loss from the skin.I have Normal/Combination skin & it worked great on my skin.
       An important reason for which the primer will not score full marks is that it is a non-tinted primer, so you need to apply foundation while in case of tinted primers,an extra step is reduced from my makeup routine.             
            
SF Rating -:  9/10
 
Final Verdict-:It is definitely a must buy for everyone specially for the beginners, to understand what amazing change a primer brings &of course it is reasonably priced.Another fact that made me love this product that it creates a thin layer that stays between the skin and makeup. 
       So girls go ahead &choose your primers wisely as it creates a smooth perfect base for makeup to go on & no one would appreciate an imperfect makeup look.Have you tried this primer and share your experiences about other primers in the comment box below... 

Love u,

BBLUNT Salon Secret High Shine Crème Hair Colour in the Shade 4.20 - Wine Deep Burgundy Review + Some Colouring Tips...

Recently, BBlunt has launched a Revolution in at - Home Hair Colour in their Salon Secret Hair colour Range which is to avoid the hassels of a salon...There are 7 shades available in the range varying from Natural Black to Deep Burgundy.
I received a sample of it to try them out. Initally I was a bit reluctant to try Hair colours on my hair because based on the experiences shared by friends & family, i feel that hair colours cause more damage to the hair than any good...But since this particular product have certain higher claims, so I decided to try it out & give my honest opinion on it...

Claims -:BBLUNT‘s Salon Secret High Shine Crème Hair Colour, is a 3-part hair colour that gives you salon like gorgeous hair at home.
           Packed in this box is our salon’s secret to dazzling hair colour: SHINE TONIC. Enriched with Silk Proteins, this special tonic is what your regular hair colour had been missing for so long.
           Simply mix the luxuriously creamy Colourant and Developer together in equal proportions and add the Shine Tonic. Now mix till smooth for a fragrant, non-drip blend. Apply and Voila! You’re only 30 minutes away from epic, shiny hair!
           This no ammonia hair colour gives 100% grey coverage, soft, shiny hair that lasts upto 8 weeks long.
 
 Ingredients -:
 
Packaging -:The hair colour comes in a Sky Blue coloured cardboard box with all 3 plastic tubes of Developer, Colourant, Shine Tonic intact in their places along with a pair of Disposable Gloves & Instruction Leaflet. Packaging is quite sturdy but when I received the package in my mail, the Colourant tube was a bit pressed but it is totally due to inappropriate handling by courier people.

Patch Test -:Before you begin with the actual application, it is important that you perform a skin hypersensitivity test 48 hours before application of the colour, so that you mane remains safe in the long run.

How to Use -:

Price -: Rs 199 for 100gm + 8ml

My Take on the product -: I was really susceptible to try a hair colour for the first time, so instead of trying it on whole of my hair, i decided to experiment by doing some highlights, so as to check that the colour goes well with my hair & especially I was super excited for the Shine Tonic.
           The consistency of all the tubes is creamy & runny, so they come out very easily from the tube.The BBLUNT Salon Secret High Shine Crème Hair Colour is very easy to use at home. All you need to just all the items of the pack & apply it immediately. The shade I choose was to leave for 45mins while I think rest of the other shades just need 30mins only. Before washing off the colour from your hair you need to emulsify it for 5 min with water and then you are good to go. Just wash & condition your hair with a colour protectant shampoo & conditioner & show off your much brighter side to the world.
           The best part of colouring my hair is that their Shine Tonic actually worked which initially I thought was a gimmick to promote. It is infused with Silk Proteins which gives my hair a softer look & natural shine which I loved the most. Although my streaks aren't that visible in normal light but in sunlight they are shining babyyyy....
          Another relief I felt using this colour is that it is Ammonia free & gives 100% grey coverage. Well I don't have grey hair, so no tension but ammonia in hair colours tends to damage our mane, so a strict no to it.

SF Rating -: 8.5/10
 
Final Verdict-:The BBLUNT Salon Secret High Shine Crème Hair Colour is very effective for the cost & quality it comes, in comparison to Loreal Paris Casting Crème & other brands. It claims to stay for more than 2 weeks with just a root touchup after 2 weeks. I was really impressed with their Shine Tonic. All in all the product lives up to my expectation, so I am quite happy with it.This is surely one of the secret that would keep you away from Salons!!!

Iraya Almond Nutrifying Skin Food Review

Hey all,
      Recently while flipping the pages of a magazine, i came across a creme which immediately caught my attention because it has such an interesting name i.e. Almond Nutrifying Skin Food, i mean really when does u hear the name of cream as Skin food,although it is our vital skin food but who calls it with this name.I felt it quite innovative,so thought to give this skin food a shot.
IRAYA ALMOND NUTRIFYING SKIN FOOD
Key Ingredients -: 

  • Almond: nourishes & moisturises,
  • Manjishta: revitalizes & rejuvenates, 
  • Sandalwood: hydrates & heels.
INGREDIENTS  LIST 
Claims -:With almond,Indian madder(manjishta),rose petals and sandalwood oil,this nutrient-rich cream is easily absorbed by the skin.Ensures both corrective and preventive action,minimises fine lines,delays signs of ageing and restores firmness and radiance.Ideal for Normal to Dry Skin.

Packaging -: The cream comes in a translucent frosted glass container/tub with a screw cap over it. To be honest,i really don't like the packaging as the tub is really sensitive & heavy which makes very difficult to travel with it.

Directions for Use -: Apply & gently massage using fingertips into face and neck, in smooth upward movements. Best to use after cleansing and toning. An essential daily ritual for soft,radiant and younger looking skin.

Price -: Rs 495 for 50 gms/1.76 Oz

 
Availability -: 
To buy from  Iraya.in , click here
To buy from Nykaa.com , click here 

My Take on the product -:The Iraya Almond Nutrifying Skin Food is white in colour,while its texture is creamy & consistency is quite thick.For the initial days, when i started using it ,i felt a very strong smell of herbs which made me reluctant to use it.But using it constantly for more than 2-3 weeks,then i become use to it & it doesn't matter me anymore.
           On application of cream on my face,it took quite a time for me to get it absorbed in the skin and i felt it heavy on my skin.But since i applied this cream, i ditched my moisturiser & didn't regret it all.As regard to its claims,it does add firmness and radiance to my skin.Presently,I can't comment on delaying signs of ageing.
            The cream has such thick base that when i applied my eye gel over it,the cream layer start coming on my hands so this cream takes some deep upward motion strokes to be finally dissolved on the skin.
            
SF Rating -:  8.7/10

Final Verdict -:This cream is specifically meant for persons either with very dry/dry skin or to be used in winters.


Have u used this cream or any other product of Iraya. Do share your views in the comment box below...

Love u...

Get your Beauty Personalised with Aplava.com

Hi Beauties,

Today's blog post is about discovering yourself. According to a survey, most women are unknown of their skin types, its problems, its tone, etc and in all of these things, they end up using products not suitable for them which leads to breakouts, itching, etc. At the same time, market is flooded with  a constant parade of promises and conflicting claims , it becomes almost impossible to lay our hands to the correct stuff.
             While searching the web for a certain product, I came to a new website Aplava.com. It is about "AAp luv".
"It is a start up beauty company providing every customer of their, an experience of Divine Beauty. For busy women/men on the go, it is a personalized beauty service tailored to your taste, budget & lifestyle that helps you look and feel your best every day."

Brief Introduction of the ideology of the brand -
                 Aplava (pronounced  as “Aap luv”) means taking a bath to purify oneself. It’s an ablution process of cleansing oneself. They believe that Beauty is you!!!!

I always love my life as a beauty blogger because it helps me to explore new products, places, brands,etc. But since buying online is not everyone cup of tea, it is difficult to match the exact tone,colour, texture of beauty products while buying them online especially. So here comes as a saviour their Personalised Beauty Section as it gives you a virtual tour of your Skin along with the help of professional beauty experts & dermatologists by building your BEAUTY PROFILE.


         Created my own Beauty Profile to help my skin get perfectly curated skin care products for it and got some recommendations for the same.

The Website has a wonderful range to offer including many international, national, drugstore, organic brands ranging from Dermalogica , Avene , Braun, Lakme, Garnier, Skintruth , Wild Earth, etc.

            I was wondering for Skintruth Equalising skincare regimen for my sister to gift her on her birthday but was unable to find it on major leading websites but I was able to locate it on this website. Ahh!!! finally got it after spending so much time.You can also check skintruth products online on the website.

           The website has a wonderful layout, is easy to use, you don’t have to look for product details as you get perfect details about the product, ingredients, How to use , About the Brand, Shipping & Returns, all information at one place only. It offers free delivery over Rs. 999/- and the best part is that the company provides time to time startling promotional offers which tends to fit more products in our budget . It also provide the option of Following the Price i.e. Keep track of the price drops on this item as and when the price of the particular product will drop, an email would pop up which in turn will help to save some more bucks.
          With all these extremely good features , I am so excited to shop with Aplava.com. Now on my wishlist, the first product is  Lakme perfect radiance Intense Whitening Serum which I am getting almost at a discount of almost 25% (including cashback also), Skintruth Skincare Regimen with discount of almost 35% - 40% and a lot more...I will update all you wonderful people when I will receive it in a haul post.
           
Brief Review by our Co-Contributor -:  Our Co - Contributor Namrata Agarwal (Soon Mom to be) also shopped some Sebamed Baby Products from Aplava for her soon to be arriving baby and here is her brief and relevant review of it. The online ordering procedure is simple like that of any online portal, but what I loved more about the website is prompt delivery within 3-4 days(meanwhile my order was delivered on the date of Constituency Elections in our city),nice & intact packaging, every item individually well packed so as to avoid spillage. I ordered some Sebamed Baby products which were 100% authentic and imported from Germany.The date of Mfgr. was of  2016, which is again a big plus for user as they provide you goods with longer shelf life. Sharing some of the pics of her order...



SF Rating -:  9/10
 
Final Verdict-: I am yet to share my personal experience of the products to be received but yes I am totally amazed with the website design, its ease to use, and most importantly its emphasis on buying the products apt for you in your budget. I don't find any cons of the website except COD charges which keeps me bothering & sometimes it take quite a time to load. Will keep you guyz updated of my haul from Aplava.com. Till then all you lovely people, check it out this amazing website and share your experiences with me in the comments below. Would love to hear from you all...
