Plum Natur Studio All - Day - Wear Kohl Kajals in Gemstone Green & Uptown Brown Review & Swatches

Hello everyone.
I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was good we had some guests home and like always I am continuing with my exercise routine which is very painful to say the least. I had also made a video regarding my current health issue if you have not watched it please check it HERE What I have noticed lately in India, is that every brand keeps launching new products but nothing in the affordable category and honestly one cannot buy everything as there are other things to buy and pay for in real life other than makeup right? Correct me if I am wrong.



Plum Natur Studio All - Day - Wear Kohl Kajals Review & Swatches

They had first come out with a black version of it which I still use till today and I have also reviewed that on my blog, you can check the review HERE.

If you know me personally you would know I love brown kajals/eye pencils and prefer them more over the traditional black which can be sometimes harsh for everyday use.This brown is again a metallic and jewel toned kajal and looks stunning on the eyes whether used as an eyeliner or on the waterline as a kohl.I instantly became a fan of it and have been using it ever since I got my eyes on them.

Plum Natur Studio All - Day - Wear Kohl Kajals Review & Swatches


Plum Natur Studio All - Day - Wear Kohl Kajals Review & Swatches


Coming to my final thoughts - These pencils glide smoothly on the lids and lasts all day with minimal smudging. Since they are gel based pencils I would suggest to use them with less pressure or the tip will break off  like it happened with me.In my opinion these are one of the best in the market and you should definitely get these as it is a one time investment and moreover it is vegan and cruelty free brand.If you buy both of these as a combo you will get a lovely golden pouch and a sharpener free as well and not only that amazing discounts so do check their website for the same or buy it online HERE

MLWM Rating:4.5/5

So guys what do you have to say about these kajals? Aren't they amazing? If you have tried or intend to after my review, do let me know in the comments section.

Until next time... Take care xoxo

So this launch was at the right time I feel.In this post I will tell you more about the The ONE Dual Drama Kohl Eye Pencils and my experience trying them.Read on to know more.....

These pencils are color co- ordinated and are made of wood. There are 2 sides with 2 colors and these pencils need to be sharpened. They have a clear cap which shows the color of the pencil and sits well on the pencil. These are user and travel friendly. The only issue is that you have to sharpen which can lead to product wastage.

Left to Right - ORANGE RAVEN,GREEN MOCHA,CANARY TEAL,CYAN NAVY


All the pencils are creamy and glide smoothly on the lids without any tugging or pulling. The first time you use it you need to make sure to warm it at the back of your hand. Due to its creamy texture it is also best used an eye shadow on the lids.Smokey eyes are a piece of cake to do with these pencils. Each one has a muted color and a contrasting one to create a ombre kind of look.They can be used as a kajal and eyeliner too.

The ONE Dual Drama Kohl Eye Pencil by Oriflame Review & Swatches

 Due to its creamy nature they are easily smudgeable and hence it is best to set it with translucent powder or a powder eye shadow of the same color.They will last you for 5 to 6 hours and may be whole day provided you do not touch your eyes. If you use it on your waterline it definitely won't last long and will smudge.In conclusion I would say that I love the concept - very new and fun and this product is best recommended for women on the go who need one product to get multiple use out of. For example if I am using the Green Mocha variant - I could use brown for the day and jazz it with green in the evening for parties or night out.I do recommend these pencils now that I have tried and shared my opinion with you all.

So what do you think of The ONE Dual Drama Kohl Eye Pencil by Oriflame?? Have you tried it yet? Do let me know in the comments section.

Until next time..Take care xoxo

Hi everyone,
Diwali is the festival of colors and all things bright and sparkly. Even though we do not celebrate this festival officially I do light a diya as it gives me the feeling of light and hope which one should never loose as that keeps us alive.I am also sure that you may have shopped or have planned to shop gifts for yourself and your loved ones. For me as a makeup enthusiast I only see makeup as gifting option for women ..Lol but then cannot help it. Just like every other brand is launching makeup and especially lipsticks Oriflame India did launch - THE ONE EXPRESS COLLECTION which comprises of Lip Crayons and Drama Kohl Eye pencils which I am excited to show you and tell you about. For today I shall be reviewing and swatching THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYONS. Please keep on reading to know more....

THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYONS come in 7 bright and beautiful shades.

BUBBLE GUM PINK
This shade is a very light pink color and will not suit our Indian skin tones in my opinion.You can use it to lighten other lipsticks.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in BUBBLE GUM PINK

CORAL CRAZE
It is a beautiful coral color which is a mix of pink and orange - more pink I would say.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in CORAL CRAZE

FUCHSIA FANTASY
It is a bright pink color with blue undertones and brightens my complexion. One of my favorites.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in FUCHSIA FANTASY

ORANGE CRUSH
This is a true orange color and brightens up the complexion. It will suit every skin tone in my opinion unless you do not like orange lipsticks.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in ORANGE CRUSH


RED RUSH
This red can be best described as red with pink undertones and will compliment every skin tone.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in RED RUSH

PURPLE HAZE
This color is perfect for fall/winter and I love it.It is a deep berry color with purple in it.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in PURPLE HAZE

INDIGO DARE
As the name suggests the shade is those for people who dare and are experimental. It is a beautiful Indigo,essentially a mixture of blue & purple. I think it looks amazing on me to be honest but the color can be a personal choice for most.


THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYON in INDIGO DARE

Packaging:
The crayons come in a jumbo pencil format as one can tell and has a transparent cap which makes the color visible from the top.The body of the lip crayon  is grey in color and bears the name of the variant on the tube itself.It is travel friendly and user friendly in my opinion, only one needs to be careful while closing the cap.

The lip crayon are smooth in texture and buttery and easily glide on the lips.The pointed edge of the crayon helps in outlining the lips and reaching the corners of the mouth easily.There is no scent to it and feels nice and comfortable on the lips. The matte lip trend is still here but I sometimes love these semi matte type of lipstick formulas as they do not dry my lips.The have no shimmer which is a big Yay! and makes your lips look fuller on application.



THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYONS by ORIFLAME Review & Swatches







THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYONS by ORIFLAME Review & Swatches

The lighter colors fade away quickly and the ones which are bright and vibrant do leave a stain behind when they fade and also disappear from the centre of the lips which kind of looks odd but one can always reapply I feel.Overall they last for 4 hours and in between meals. All the shades are perfect for Indian skin tones except Bubble Gum Pink but you can mix it with some other color to create a custom shade.If you follow Oriflame India on their Instagram they have shown how to use these to create fun lip looks i.e ombre lips or mixing two or more colors for fun. I leave that upto you how you may want to use it. To conclude I would say these are semi - matte, have good color pigment to them and the staying power is fairly good. These also make perfect gifting options, so what are you waiting for?? Go grab them while they are on offer.

MLWM Rating: 4.2/5

So what do you think of Oriflame's THE ONE EXPRESS LIP CRAYONS?? Aren't they fun?? Would you try it or already have please let me know in the comments section.

Wishing all of my readers and followers a very Happy Diwali & Prosperous New Year 2017 ♥♥

Until we meet again... Take care xoxo

Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defense Cream Review

Hi everyone,
I know it has been 2 weeks since I posted anything here but if you follow me on my Instagram handle you would know why. I have been in so much pain (back pain) which started more than 2 weeks ago. I have had excruciating back pain (muscle pull) that I cannot even describe and I am still in pain while posting this. I will do a video perhaps on my YouTube channel mentioning what had happened soon, if you have not subscribed to my channel yet you can do so HERE. Thank you to all those who asked me about my well being and those who did not well I really don't care and what can one expect of strangers on the internet, I mean even relatives don't bother now a days so you know what I mean :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defense in this post today. If you have visited my blog before you would know I have reviewed another product from their range which I loved the review of which you can read HERE The brand is owned by  EM & EM personal care pvt Ltd. So there are many BB, CC and even DD creams now in the market which most of us do own but this claims to be all in one so let me tell you my experience trying it. Please keep reading to know more about this product.....


Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defense Cream Review

Price: Rs.799/- for 50g. Available online with discount HERE

Ingredients:




Brand description of the product:
The Eternal Youth All In One Smart Day Cream is an All in One Skin Regime product by Coccoon. It has multiple benefits which caters to today's active woman.

Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defense Cream Review


Coccoon Eternal Youth All In One Smart Cream + BB + CC + Photo Defense Cream Review

The product comes enclosed in a cardboard box packaging with all the necessary information on it. The cream comes in a white opaque bottle with a pump dispenser which is so good as I hate the ones which come with a wide mouth and wastes product.The product tends to accumulate near the cap which is the thing with pump packaging but I think its normal and since the cap sits well it can be travel friendly as well.



The before and after pic after application of the product.I know I look sick please excuse that :)

The All in one cream comes in only one shade which is a bummer but then most of the other brands have one shade too which blends and adapts to one's skin type. Ok so I have fair to medium skin tone and this shade suited me. The cream is thick and needs to be blended well. The face looks dewy post application which is a bad thing for oily skin people like me hence setting it with a powder will be a must. The coverage is light and does not hide any blemishes or pimples etc. The shade may be a misfit for deeper skin tones in my opinion.It blends well into the skin however makes my skin greasy and is not photo friendly as well. Overall I think that it can be good for those who have less problematic skin and someone who does not require lot of coverage.It can be used as a daily all in one cream by those who have dry skin. The price point is quite high which I did not like as it is does not even give medium coverage.Overall it is an okay product and will suit dry skin women in my opinion.

MLWM Rating: 3.5/5

Coccoon Eternal Youth Smart Night Serum + Intense Repair Review

Hello everyone,
Today I bring to you a product from the brand Coccoon which is owned by company - EM & EM PVT LTD. I don't know how many times I have stressed about the fact that skincare is very important and you will only know why I say this is when you cross the big 30 which I have already . Back then in my teenage days we never had blogs and YouTube channels to tell us about this but now things are different although I see some girl somewhere aged between 20 & 22 telling her audience to use anti aging cream.. Lol. The point I am making here is there is an age for everything and in my opinion once you hit 25 is when you should start. So coming to today's review it is a product which I have been using for a month and I am going to tell you what I feel about it. Read on to know more.....

Coccoon Eternal Youth Smart Night Serum + Intense Repair Review

Coccoon Eternal Youth Smart Night Serum + Intense Repair Review



The serum has a nice floral and fruity type of scent.The consistency is quite light weight and gets absorbed easily into the skin. I have oily skin but with time I have noticed that only my T zone gets oily so I need some moisturization and a little bit extra before I go to bed so that the serum works its magic at night and repairs my skin. So I use at night like that is  when I am supposed to use it after washing my face clean. It is moisturizing in my opinion and imparts a glow to the skin the following morning. It will work for all skin types in my opinion as it did not break out my oily skin (at the moment).Also it is Non-Comedogenic hence it won't block your pores and cause you breakouts.It is supposed to contain Kakadu which is an ingredient that contains high levels of Vitamin C which is perfect for aging skin. Continuous usage of product will help reduce fine lines and show some effect on wrinkles and darkspots.Overall it is a great anti aging night serum to try in the affordable category do check it out ladies.

MLWM Rating:4.3/5
