Mac Studio fix Powder Plus Foundation Vs Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Matte Powder Foundation

Hello Friends! Today I am going to review a powder foundation. I personally feel powder foundations are best as they are so quick to apply and mess-free. But of course, liquid foundations are always going to be on the top hierarchy as they provide a flawless canvas and hence, are simply irreplaceable. 

Important things to mention is, my skin is Normal/combination. I love to wear matte natural-looking foundations with medium coverage. And I don’t mind if some nasty acne/spots peek through it. 

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

On website it says, “a one-step pressed powder and foundation that gives skin a 12-hour ultra-matte finish while controlling shine and without causing acne.” So yes! that’s true. It is such an amazing product by MAC. It is a beautiful matte press powder foundation & lightweight. It indeed feels like your second skin if you get the exact color match. Although it has 53 shades to choose from, one should know what shade to choose without any doubt as even if the light application can give you the desired result.

So my shade is NC 42 – TANNED PEACH WITH GOLDEN UNDERTONES FOR MEDIUM TO DARK SKIN (NEUTRAL-COOL). And unknowingly if I go overboard with it like even 2 layers, instantly my face looks like an orange. Well reason is, I was recommended a wrong shade by the Mac Rep. When I contacted MAC again they suggest NC40. After that, I did not dare to spend money blindly unless I go to the store and try it personally. 

I use it during hot/summer days, as I know my skin easily get tanned so NC42 works good if I use it mindfully.

Anyways, yes it is easily buildable and flawless. Definitely wearable on its own if you wish to skip a liquid foundation like I do (No-makeup look) or can be used as a setting powder.


Here, I am going to validate few points as to what MAC says and what I think after using powder as a foundation without any liquid foundation. 

  • Long-wearing, 12 hours – I don’t think so it is true as I can see after wearing it for 7-8 hrs, I can feel my skin getting little bit oily and foundation starts to wear off so touch-up is needed.
  • Immediately reduces the appearance of pores – Yes, skin looks even-toned and since it is a powder it blends well into the skin so apparently pores might look smaller.
  • Controls oil and shine, 8 hours – Yes, true but touch-up is needed.
  • For all skin types, especially oily skin – Yes, for combination/normal like mine.
  • Stay-true color, 12 hours – Not sure as I never tried it for 12 hrs.
  • Does not cause acne – Yes, very true.
  • Non-streaking/non-caking/non-settling, 12 hours – Yes true but not sure for 12 hrs.
  • Sweat- and humidity-resistant – Yes, up to a few hrs in hot summer. .
  • Photo-friendly – Yes, true!

Price – 15 G / 0.52 US OZ $33.00 (USD)

Estee Lauder double wear Stay-in-Place Matte Powder Foundation

Best seller and flawless matte pressed powder foundation. Sink into the skin beautifully and I really like the way it blends into the skin with minimum effort. Coverage is buildable to full coverage and can wear as a foundation or over it. 

My shade is 3W1 TAWNY. It is a good match for me. But at least it does not make me look clownish. I use it with my Tarte powder brush to sweep over the face and voila! I get a gorgeous natural finish without any hustle.

It offers 41 shades. I hope there is something for pretty much every skin tone except a few as there is scope for improvement in terms of making more variety of shades. 

On EL website it says,”Versatile formula is silky soft, weightless, flawless. Controls oil and shine. Stays color true.”

So, yes! Double wear by EL is a game-changer compact totally Worth a try. It does not cause acne, better version of compact, non-caking and it surely controls oil and shine but roughly for 5-6 hrs after that touch-up might be needed. 

It is a matte powder (but not ultra-matte) and it has just the right amount of softness in it. Once applied, it gives a very natural look without being heavy on the skin. 

I use it as a foundation, I like to wear sheer/medium coverage finish and never tried to achieve full coverage. I must say I am pretty much happy with what I get from a small compact.

I have been using it for the last 4 years in a row, I always go back to EL no matter how many compacts I try.

Price – 0.42 oz. $43.00 (USD)

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Recommendations

Mac and Estee Lauder (EL) both are beautiful compacts. Having said that, the Mac formula is a little bit thicker than EL. This is the only reason always be watchful while using it.

Use it as a foundation or setting powder/touch-ups. However, Mac studio fix would be a better choice during sunny summer days as it provides an ultra-matte finish.

I would say go for EL Double wear Stay-in-Place matte Powder foundation if you want to use it as a foundation for those easy days to get the natural finish during winter or summer.

So this is for now, Thank you so much guys !

#3 Best seller “Always on liquid lipstick” from Smashbox !

I always get very excited when I know my next post is going to be the topic I really love from the bottom of my heart is Lipsticks. So without further ado let’s jump into it.

Smashbox’s ‘Always On Liquid Lipstick’ Bawse, Out Loud & Baja Bound

A liquid matte lipstick infused with primer oil complex. A non-drying formula that is so opaque and insanely pigmented. A matte finish which so comfortable on lips and waterproof. On top of it, it has a list of huge fan followers. It is a “Cruelty-free” brand. The price is $24 (USD).

What I really think about these liquid lipsticks.

Bawse – It is a beautiful, gorgeous, and “must-have” deep red! Be ready for that ‘red carpet’ look…Yes! I must say, after trying Bawse my obsession for ‘Mac ruby woo’ has lessened for some reason. I would suggest people who are into Reds and haven’t tried this one…please go and grab ‘BAWSE’! It will never disappoint you. Such a universally flattering red shade and will suit all skin tones.

Basically, When I tried to compare it with Mac ‘ruby woo’, I could see that ‘Bawse’ is the winner! Although Smashbox is pricey and has earned its perks by offering an excellent color pay off. One swipe is fully packed with intense color, so lightweight and flawless.

OUT LOUD – A deep orange shade and I never ever thought that this shade would be the best discovery of my life ……. I don’t know why it took me so long to get my hands on this liquid lipstick. Omg! when I first tried it on my lips I was like…Huhh! where was I this whole time before the pandemic…And now since I have found this gorgeous shade…I have to wear a mask every time I step outside the house. However, I am happy that finally I got into orange and not just limited to pink, coral, fuscia ‘n’ reds etc,.

Such a pretty burnt orange so opaque and lightweight with the beautiful color pay off. This shade is for all my beauties who are thinking to invest in some different shades. It is definitely going to suit you irrespective of different skin tones. Again this is a matte formula but not over-drying. 

BAJA BOUND – A pink coral shade that is bright yet gives a very soft look. Recently I have updated my profile picture on WordPress there I am wearing this shade. As per my opinion, it’s not that unique shade and I am definitely not going to recommend it unless you want to spend $24(USD) on it. Being said that, NYX soft matte liquid lipsticks have a wide array of color collections and one particular shade “Antwerp” is similar (but not same) to this shade. Luckily, I have been using it for years so I know it is irreplaceable.

Anyway, Let’s come back to Baja Bound. Again, it is the same lightweight matte formula. Super opaque with excellent color pay off. But guys, I think this shade will look beautiful on light to medium skin tone and my beauties between tan to deeper skin tone, it may wash you out. But as I always say that there are no strict rules for wearing make so suit yourself and feel free to try it.

My final thoughts !

The formula is quite thick & matte once dry so dry/chapped lips beware!. Please exfoliate and prep-prime before application or else, it may settle into fine lines and end up looking like “Zombie’s lips”..ha ha ha !!!

These liquid lipsticks are best if planning to wear often (but not occasionally) in order to utilize the product as much as possible. Else it might end up getting dry or cloggy in a container and then you won’t be able to use it anymore. The game is over!

Seems, these are long-lasting, waterproof, and stays put for pretty much considerable time but not sure if it will survive throughout the day. A quick touch up might be needed. 

My most recommendable color is ‘BAWSE’.

Pigmented lips like mine. These lippies are boon for us! Grab any color you like!

So yes! I would recommend it to my friend and family to buy specific/selected shades!

Please share your thoughts n comments and let me know if you like matte liquid lipsticks too!

Thank you and Namaste !

Wish you a “Merry Christmas”!

I wish you a Merry Christmas! I wish you a Merry Christmas!!! and a happy new year!!!! 

The 2020 year has been strange and weird for all of us! I mean who knew words like Corona or COVID-19 even exist. Everyone is trying to look forward to a better future and waiting to get a sigh of relief. 

However, I have noticed one thing, a positive thing…you know what! … We are learning to be more n more patient, to sit down and think about ourselves, to care about family more than before, and last but not least, now we emphasize more on “mental health” than “wealth”. 

And hence it gives us a reason to celebrate 2020, 25th December deliriously happy!

So wish you a “Merry Christmas”! May God give you and your family a lot of happiness, strength, and good health. Let this Christmas spirit shine through your laugh and giggles.

Virtual parties are the best parties this year, so don’t feel sad about it. Instead, raise a toast with all the positive energy that resides in you.

Wishing you a very magical and happy holidays!

“Merry Christmas” !!!.

Thank you !

What I think about 24K Gold Facial mask?

I remember when I was a teenager, I used to accompany my older sisters or my cousins to the salon and those ladies would suggest Pearl or Golden facial. Mainly if she is a “bride to be” , then it’s compulsory to get the Golden facial done so that bride will look more radiant and brighter on Big day. Now, I really do not know if it is true. However, for the past many centuries using Gold (Extract/foil) in skincare has been a regular practice, even “Cleopatra” was a fan of it. So one day I thought let’s try some Gold mask and see if it really makes any difference in skin texture.

There are tons of different varieties of masks available in the market. I like to use clay masks and have been using it for many years but I stay away from single pouch/sachet masks. I am actually a little bit skeptical about it so never tried any masks except maybe 1 or 2 in my life, though I would like to try some in the future. 

Anyway, for the first time, I had ordered something by keeping my preferences aside and was very curious to know if it indeed works.

I am not an expert but so far what know about Gold, is best known for its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties So, I have been using this for over a year now. I use it after cleansing or exfoliating my face. It comes with a very small spatula to scoop up the product out of the jar without any mess. I apply a thin layer and keep it for 20 min. Then I gently massage the face while rinsing it with warm water. This mask gives me an instant glow. It makes my skin very soft like satin silk. Apparently, the skin is well hydrated and moisturized. Its silky formula looks so luxurious and promising, that it will convince you to add it to your not daily but weekly skincare routine. For me, I feel like getting a spa treatment at home.

Suitable for all skin types. For reference, my skin type is Normal/combination with oily T-zone and not very sensitive. Acne-prone skin, not so sure if it will work for you as I think it has a tendency of leaving some sort of oily/rich moisturizing effect on the skin. It might make your skin more oily which is the last thing you would expect from Gold mask or can cause a breakout. Again, it depends on how you want to incorporate this mask into your beauty regimen. Quantity wise, it is good and will last longer than you imagine..so it is a win-win situation for you and your pocket as well. 

You can see the constancy of the formula below in the picture.

I ordered this mask from Amazon last year and don’t remember the price but I guess it was below $20(USD).

Ingredients : Purified water, Butyl glycol, Silk Amino Acids, Ceramides, Codium Tomentosum Extracts, Hydrolyzed Collagen, LEONTOPODIUM ALPINUM Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, , P-glucan, PORTULACA OLERACEA extract, shea butter, Cereus Grandiflorus extract, Arnica Montana flower extract, sodium hyaluronate, polyglutamic acid, tocopherol (Vitamin E), xanthan gum, allantoin, 24K Gold

I like this mask but not a “must try” product as I did not notice any long term or permanent significant change in my skin tone.

Thank you!

Namaste!

P.S. – I have had been using this Mask for quite a long time before my face started to break out. For the last 3-4 months, I have been fighting with hormonal acne problems. After trying OTC treatments, now finally I am using the “Curology” customized treatment plan. Results are awaited !

MAC retro matte ‘flat out fabulous’ vs Mac powder kiss lipstick ‘velvet punch’ lipstick

Yes! I know these two are totally different from each other like formula or say texture-wise. But the reason behind this article is to show you the color pay off and to compare powder formula with other matte lipsticks from Mac. So I picked up “flat out fabulous” which is a retro matte lipstick and a “velvet punch” which is a powder kiss lipstick. I could have chosen another matte lipstick shade to describe it against powder kiss lipstick but these two belong to a sort of similar color family more like cousins…Lol!!. For reference, I am NC42(though I think it is a little more orange+ish for my skin).

On thanksgiving, Mac was offering 40% off on lipsticks so I decided to buy powder kiss”Velvet punch” lipstick, and of course, I tried their virtual “try it on” with live cam. There I saw a very beautiful & gorgeous fuchsia color on my lips. I fell for it and made a purchase. Now, let’s see what I think about it.

In the picture below, from the left is “velvet punch” and right is “Flat out fabulous”.

Mac flat out fabulous

A Retro matte Cool-toned bright Fuschia lipstick so opaque with excellent color pay off. Single swipe transfers bright Fuschia onto lips. However, lips need to be exfoliated and hydrated beforehand is highly recommended else it would be very hard to apply it. And most important thing is, even if it is a retro matte it will not dry down your lips !. This one is my favorite shade and among other retro matte colors which is pretty long lasting as well …So it’s like if somebody asks me to pick one matte I will definitely choose flat-out fabulous (Ruby woo as well). It is a very gorgeous color and will suit all skin tones. So people who are into very bright colors and ready to flaunt, please go and grab it…I am very happy with this one :). 

It’s retail price is $19 (USD)

Wearing Mac retro matte flat out fabulous
Powder kiss Velvet Punch

A unique powder formula makes it special. It is described as a weightless moisture-matte lipstick that delivers a blur of soft-focus color. It is a cool tones Fuschia not really very bright & less opaque with a low hydration level (for dry lips like mine). On fair and deeper complexion it might look a little brighter but on medium skin tone, I doubt about it. I tried to feel its presence on my lips but I think, it is indeed a revolutionary weightless formula. Being said that, it gives you a powdery feel..all the time. Every powder lipstick may look different on every skin tone. Although, these are the best seller lippies that people have approved. But on the contrary, my personal experience after trying other 2-3 lipsticks shades (at store before pandemic) from the same finish was not good at all. I am NC 42 and I remember I tried some red shade, it was just another Cool toned red that I could get similar shades from drugstore brands at a cheaper price so thanks to NYX . I don’t think it is long-lasting as well.

So finally I am getting very hard time to get along with it. I was expecting a very bright intense color instead I got shade which looks very very regular (not my type) on me, no matter how many layers I apply.

But you can try it and let me know what you really think about Mac Powder kiss lipsticks?

Tea lovers! This is for you.. Yogi green, black and herbal tea.

“Health is wealth” is a very old proverb and hence very popular across the continents. Looking after health has become our very main goal in life as fast forward technologies and innovation are changing our lifestyle. In old days, people used to do more physical work and eat homemade food so the tea was either refreshment or it was a special beverage during a family “get together” sipping a hot cup of tea and to chitchat!!!

As the years go by, we are becoming more health-conscious and struggle to stay away from a lousy lifestyle…..This is the Golden opportunity for the “tea” industry to come up with unique and different ideas…..As a result, Green, black or herbal tea are becoming more n more popular and gaining attention widely. An exceptional range of “tea” are available in the market to choose from. So thought extending help of hand and get you close to “tea” which you might like to try. 

I am a huge “Green Tea” lover and like to explore different flavors and I think you would like it too!! So let’s take a look. Indulging in tea for me is more about feeling pure about myself…I mean whenever I sip a hot cup of tea, the connection between my mind and body is so instant and I feel rejuvenated. This was the reason I was looking for some good and unique tea after using “Kirkland green tea” for several years. 

One day I went to the store just to explore tea and then something caught my eyes….. I saw the pack of “Yogi Tea” available in so many flavors with health benefits…It blew my mind!! I mean seriously it was unbelievable…I had never seen so many flavors in my life…after a brief pause, I recollected myself and just picked up the “Ginger” flavor as I have always been a ginger tea person! But now I think like herbal too…..!

Anyway, when I came back home, what I really wanted is to see how it tastes. Without wasting my time I started to read the instructions and accordingly I made my tea…now my first impression was mixed up. It was hard to tell if I can remain consistent for the next few days..but then I decided to give it some time and continue it about a week or so… then something magical happened… Guess what? I ordered a variety pack from Amazon which includes the flavors you see in the picture above! Part of me really wanted to try that unique taste and was very curious too!. That was crazy, isn’t it? Yes…I know it!

“Yogi tea” is such an amazing tea and offers 40 varieties of black, green & herbal tea so it all depends on your choice what kind of tea you like. If you ask me I like all the flavors (Tea shown in the pictures) except “Honey Chai Turmeric Vitality Tea” as I feel it has an overpowering aroma of spices..more like cinnamon and has a little bit sweet taste to it. But again it’s all about individual preferences.

Nope! This post is not at all sponsored. But since WordPress is a platform where we can share our thoughts and connect to each other. So I wanted to take an opportunity to introduce this tea to all of you guys! 

This tea is really very expensive and honestly, I did not find any offers/discounts not even on Amazon. So all the best! Let me know what do you think about this article.

I will give it a full five stars and Yes! I would recommend it to my friends and family!

My oxidized earrings collection!

Hello friends,

The Festival season is around the corner! so what are you going to wear on a special occasion? My plan is simple I will choose my dress according to my earrings. This sounds crazy but it’s true folks!! I just love all my earrings and today I am going to show you my selected oxidized earrings collection…well I like to wear it whenever I choose ethnic wear and this kind of jewelry looks so graceful! I get a lot of compliments…So I really wanted to share my look for a quick peek.

Personally, my preferences for earrings are wide, and oxidized is one of them. If you think that the style I am wearing can go beautifully with one of your dresses then please go get it. “We create fashion, fashion does not create us.”

Style 1.
Style 2.
Style 3.
Style 4. (Regular earrings )

Now while choosing these kinds of earrings, I would suggest please see how much it weighs. It can go from lightweight to heavyweight. Make sure you check it first..my past experience was horrible and I could not stand the pain even for an hour…..it was so uncomfortable my ear lobes were cherry red and had steam coming out of my ears for such a bad investment …So eventually all depends on the buyer to select jewelry with a suitable weight.

Why I love these because I think it completes my look! Even if I am running late for any event or party (Especially Desi)…I wear a dress…apply some compact powder…Red lipstick….my fav Kajal!! I am ready to go! when I look in the mirror it gives me confidence…you don’t have to worry about anything else except how are you going to reach the venue in time…!!!!

I bought it from different places and so its price varies but two of them I bought from Amazon at great price.

Let me know what do you think about this post! Please share your earring style so that I can explore it more.

Thank you so much!

Namaste!!

Favorite body wash from “Bath & body works”, for him as well!

Hello my friends !

“Bath and body works” store is all about fragrance! As soon as I enter, I totally lose control over myself!!.. I literally want to smell every product present in the store and yes including Men’s collection too… Eventually got my hands on it!

And fun part is, not only during Christmas but whenever I go to mall, part of me always want to see what’s new in store. It is so exciting task!! yay!…. but everything glitters ain’t gold likewise every fragrance can not be pleasant…..so exceptions are always there as sometimes I think some of them have very overpowering fragrance and it gives me an instant headache!!

I can not buy everything at once(of course not ) but it is a gradual process of trying out products that feel good and love throughout a year. So this post is all about sharing my take on these fragrance full products.

from left “into the night” for woman and center “forest” & right “ocean’ from men’s collection
“Into the night” from Woman’s collection

Such a romantic name ….wow! Just love it!….. Ok about this one… I have a very special thing about it… because I have tried their couple of body wash fragrances and I always come back to this….they have such a huge collection of body wash and body cream…but I found creams are not that moisturizing as they claim…I mean I even tried a few of them… apparently, their creams do not do any wonder…no at least not for me! however, I keep hand cream which comes in a small tube and very handy! Anyway, Let’s not deviate from the topic…So come back…(He hehe )…I always enjoy taking shower when I see my best body wash in the bathroom caddy. Their all moisturizing body wash products are super creamy with a rich lather. The fragrance is very feminine and it has been described as a “blend of dark berries, midnight jasmine & rich amber”. So if you wish grab one or gift one!

Key ingredients – Infused with shea butter, coconut oil & cocoa butter.

Price – $13.50 (USD) for 10 fl/oz

3-in-1 hair, body wash from men’s collection

Amazing fragrance and little goes a long way…absolutely stunning. My hubby loves this collection. But don’t go overboard with it..you might get a feeling as if used whole bottle in one wash…yeah! It is very strong. So “Forest” has been described as “A crisp blend of bergamot, sage & crushed cedarwood” so marvelous fragrance. “Ocean” is “An invigorating blend of blue cypress, vetiver & coastal air”.Both are super refreshing. Even though it says 3-in-1, I am not sure if you can use it for hair and face so the choice is yours. Everybody’s opinion on this would be different so see what suits you best!

Key ingredients – Vitamin E, shea butter and aloe.

Price – $14.50 (USD) for 10 fl/oz

These products are super fun to try and at the same time very wonderful to gift somebody. I am sure he/she is going to adore it. I would give it 5 stars and yes! would recommend to friend & family !

Lancôme ROSE SORBET CRYO-MASK $39(USD). Does it really work?

Hello Guys!!!

How are you all? Hopefully, everything is going great at your end… Today I am here to review a very unique Cryo- mask by Lancôme so “1..2..3… eyes on me.”!!

This time I wanted to try something to get rid of enlarged pores which are not that large but when I see my face is going through some really bad acne (breakout) from past three/four months and kind of leaves unwanted nasty black spots followed with some pores, as a result, skin does not look smooth as it was before. Irrespective of skin color, everybody wants that flawless canvas and radiant face …. So me striving to get my skin better and to minimize the appearance of pores.

They say(Lancome), its pore minimizer and glow booster…so let’s see what it is!! I am going to write my honest review and experience after using this mask for about 1 month! Again it varies from person to person so no hard feelings! 

Let’s see what is it? Why Lancôme invented this Sorbet cryo-mask.

A five-minute cooling face mask that instantly re-energizes skin and reveals a rosy glow as it works to tighten pores, smooth skin texture and even skin tone. stated by Lancôme on its website.

When to use it? 1.Cleanse 2.Prepare 3.Active 4.treat(Apply mask) 5.Target

How to Apply? Apply the face mask by gently patting a generous layer on a clean face.After 5 minutes, rinse off with warm water.

How I use it? 1.Cleanse 2.Apply this mask 3.Toner 4.Serum 5.Moisturizer and final step, I use my acne spot treatment cream. I am not sure if this is the correct method to use this mask. But I suppose it should so I continue the way I like it instead of scratching my head and think about what they say. However, I strongly think the end result should be the same.

It has been over a month now since I have started using the product and I can see that mask is becoming my best buddy. Why? because it gives that extraordinary cooling effect on the skin..just calm, relaxing and soothing!!! It has a wonderful rosy smell, not overpowering which I love the most… Sometimes I just open the jar to inhale the rosy scent….quickly freshen up my mood n mind. 

It is actually a decent, very different product that gives instant freshness and glow!!!! Yes! the unique formula makes it a very special mask …so its texture! It is a pink sorbet with a matte finish. You can check the texture below.

But at the same time, I doubt it works as a pore tightening mask, apart from its mind-blowing texture and scent! For me…it does not do its job of minimizing pores!! I did not see any improvements instead when I remove it, I feel my skin has some kind of rawness as if a layer or film has built up on face… It does not feel hydrated or for that matter moisturized!!! I get it, its mattifying mask but then it fails to serve its purpose and does not make skin smooth & supple.

For me, after using this mask for 4 weeks…It did not change my skin texture, with no significant changes. I am not at all happy with this mask except for its cooling effect which is the best part and I enjoy it…and yes I would see if I can get this product at discounted price so that I can use it as a cooling mask to calm down my irritated skin caused by acne. Otherwise, it works like any other drug store mask. Before you buy, make sure you try a sample or trial size pack. I would not recommend it to my friends who are looking for a serious pore-minimizer/tightening mask.

I would give it 2 stars!
