Best Makeup Remover Cleansing Balm for all skin types – Clinique’s Take The Day Off Balm

Clinique Take the day off cleansing balm. The best makeup removing cleansing balm suits all skin types. Awarded by Allure Beauty Expert as the best makeup removal product. 

Juggling between which product to use or which one is better than the other. On top of it, having acne-prone skin or fighting acne-related issues makes the situation worst. It is very hard to choose the products, especially when buying skincare products. Believe me, I always step into others’ shoes when I write such posts. 

Hence, I can say out loud that this is the best cleansing balm I have ever tried. So gentle on your skin. I have tried a couple of other drugstore brands and a few from high-end. But Clinique’s Take the Day Off cleansing balm stands apart. Once you incorporate it into your makeup removal ritual, you will forget about its price. Would love to keep a backup in case of emergency. 

In the beginning, I was a bit skeptical if this makeup removing balm will work to its hype. I started using Clinique Take the day off cleansing balm when I was breaking out badly. I was using minimum makeup at that time and did not want to use any harsh makeup removal wipes either. Eventually, ended up using it more often than the other products I owe. 

What makes it a bestseller?

Clinique Take the day off cleansing balm dissolves long-wearing makeup in a minute. The best part is, that it is suitable for all skin types. Every skin type. It will never let you down except for people who have very-very sensitive skin and needs doctors’ attention. 

The formula is Non-comedogenic, Non-greasy, Non-drying, and Fragrance-free. Lightweight makeup remover dissolves stubborn eye and facial makeups, as well as sunscreens, swiftly. When applied, it transforms from a firm balm to a silky oil. It cleans deeply and completely. Helps skin seem younger and longer by gently removing the stress of pollutants. 

As stated on Clinique’s website, the key ingredients are Safflower seed oil.

This natural emollient is high in linoleic acid and leaves skin feeling soft and nourished. It effectively breaks up natural oils on the face and dissolves difficult-to-remove makeup.

In my opinion, yes it indeed does what it says. The silky formula just melts down the makeup on your face into some luxurious emollient balm. Leaving skin very soft and clean.

Also, I must admit that price-wise, it is expensive and probably for many of us (including me) cannot always be an affordable option spending USD 36 for 3.8 oz. / 125 ml. 

But it’s the winner cannot debate on price. 

Final Thoughts

Clinique Take the day off makeup removing cleansing balm is an amazing product. It is gentle yet very effective and breaks down the makeup and for that, you just need to massage the balm into dry skin with your fingertips. Voila! Your face is clean and makeup free. As I have mentioned earlier this would be the most recommendable product for acne-prone skin. Give it a try!

NYX EYE SHADOW PALETTE “FESTIVAL”

NYX Eyeshadow Palette Festival

A pocket-friendly eye shadow palette that is relatively good pigmented for the price and has no fallout except shimmery ones. A combination of vibrant colors with flattering shades. Guess what? This compact NYX palette is everything you will want to keep handy for a quick make-over and if you are a beginner then grab it without a second thought.

Long story short, I was looking for a playful & vibrant eye palette to get out of my comfort zone. I usually opt for warm and natural eye shadows that are easy to go. But my sister suggested I try something striking colors as well. So found out what was missing in my vanity box, it was a palette like the NYX festival.

There are numerous brands that offer heavily pigmented colors at a hefty price. And knowing that, I am not a professional to demand high-quality products. This eyeshadow palette is just what I could wish for. 

If you are a social butterfly, this budget-friendly palette will save tons of your time to get ready.

It has 16 shades, out of which 11 shades are matte finish and 5 are shimmery. Tempting colors that are indeed eye-catching, perfect for spring and summer outings. I was able to create and play with colors that you can see the video in the link below. My recent activities include creating short youtube videos and uploading them, also updating reels on Instagram. If you like my other videos on YouTube then please Like and subscribe to my channel.

Here you can get a glimpse of it. “Eye liner” I have used is also from NYX ♥️.

You can create from natural eye look to smokey or glam nights, by using this small palette.

I bought this from Walmart for $12.53 (USD)

P.S. You might need a facial spray like Mac Prep+prime to intensify the shimmery color. 

Let me know what do you think about this palette.

Thank you and Namaste!


MAC Lipstick “Marrakesh” review

If you have been reading my posts, you all know how much I love to review lipsticks. So here I am with yet another lipstick post to share swatches and much more.

I am eagerly waiting to say “bye-bye Covid-19 & its non-stop variants”. I mean seriously, girls like us who are desperate to flaunt newly painted lips, have to hide joy under the mask with a heavy heart. But, what I have learned these days, inner happiness is the best remedy for all worries. So no worries. And I give a big smile and cheer up myself.

Now let’s continue and dive into it.

MAC Marrakesh

MAC describes it as an “Intense orange-brown (Matte)”. It is a matte lipstick that has no shine (not ultra-matte). The shade shown in the swatches might not be the same as it looks in real. I tried to capture the real color of the bullet but daylight did not let me do that. However, hope you will get an idea from lips and hand swatches.

So “MAC Marrakesh” is a pretty matte shade and opaque, and one swipe delivers a punch of color with a smooth application. I prefer to use a straight lipstick bullet for application instead of using a brush and that saves my ton of time.

This lipstick has an excellent color payoff. Having pigmented lips like mine, MAC Marrakesh is the very right choice for us. You can wear it anytime, this gorgeous color will always balance your look beautifully.

Even though it’s a matte lipstick, it is a non-drying formula. Being said that, the formula is neutral. Neither drying nor hydrating. Therefore, I will recommend softening lips with Lip balm or anything of your choice before applying the lipstick. If wearing throughout the day, a touch-up might be needed.

Mac Cosmetics always comes up with innovative lipstick formulas and this one is definitely the lipstick that can never go out of fashion.

Last but not least, special message to my Indian friends. This would be the most beautiful lipstick in your vanity and I am sure you would grab it more frequently before leaving the house.

MAC Marrakesh lipstick’s retail price is $19 (USD) 3G / 0.1 US OZ.

Stay safe and healthy!

Namaste!


Best Concealer for Indian skin “Tarte shape tape concealer”

Today, I am going to review the most popular concealer that is approved by many bloggers and vloggers. People vouch for its incredible performance. It’s a Tarte Shape tape concealer.

Let’s see what I think about it.

I have been using Tarte shape tape concealer for over 2 years now. I must say, I never felt like switching it to another brand.

In this post, I have especially emphasized Indian skin tone because I know the weather in India is very unpredictable and at times it becomes very risky to wear makeup while commuting by public transportation during sunny or Hot/humid days. So girls I understand your pain. That’s the reason I thought of dedicating this post to all my Indian friends.

So my skin tone is Medium-Tan, foundation shade in MAC NC 35/NC37, Estee Lauder is Tawny, just for your reference. Tarte shape tape in the shade 36S Medium-Tan sand works like a magic for me. I just love the result when I look into the mirror at the end of the day.

Let’s talk about the formula.

Tarte’s shape tape concealer is the most sought-after concealer in the United States. But region-wise every product has some pros and cons. Speaking about India, most people prefer to commute by public transportation (Viz. by Bus or Train) and the situation could get worst in Summer. So ladies, let’s see what I have for you in this post.

Tarte claims :

  • full-coverage formula with natural matte finish – Yes! That’s right.
  • smooths & brightens to make eyes appear lifted – Yes, but I have noticed the product has a tendancy to settle into fine lines & crease so setting it with powder perfectly is important.
  • crease-proof formula won’t cake or settle with 16 hrs of flawless wear – Can’t say 16 hrs but I have tested it for 6-7 hrs and it stays put.
  • tape technology™ helps smooth & blur appearance of fine lines & wrinkles – Not sure what is Tape technology but yes it certainly helps smooth & lifts the under eye area and thats what a concealer is supposed to do .
  • applies easily with jumbo speed smoother™ – True but I feel the smaller domed end of the sponge would have been great like maybelline Fit me to apply easily.
  • ideal for normal, combination & oily skin – Yes! I would say it is true.

Yeah, it is full coverage formula with a natural matte finish. I have tried best seller Maybelline Fit me concealer as well. But somehow it did not work out for me. When I tried Tarte Shape Tape concealer in the Ulta, I just fell in love with it. After a long time, something had worked on me like magic, especially concealer with exact shade.

As mentioned earlier, I use 36S Medium-Tan sand and I don’t think I am going to change it anytime soon. Winter or Summer, I can use it all year round.

The formula is great and blendable, and most importantly it is super easy to apply for even a newbie. I personally feel that the smaller tip of the sponge applicator could have been a great choice to pick less product. Having said that, you can always prefer to use the desired amount of product if applied carefully. For me, less is more.

I mean, initially, when I started to use concealer, I knew the perfect blending is the key to achieving flawless under eyes. On top of that my low confidence was keeping me away from using such concealer ($30 USD), as I knew that I am not confident enough and did not want to waste my money.

But honestly, Tarte shape tape changed the game. It works best with its best buddy “beauty blender” and I can say it will suit any skin type if you find your perfect shade. Like mine, I have combination skin and so far my eyes are loving it more than me. Anyways, I have tested it in hot summers and it stays put for around 6-7 hrs. But make sure you set it properly with a setting powder. Sometimes your eyes might need a touch-up to avoid settling it in the creases or fine lines, especially in the hot scorching sun.

An easy-peasy formula can be directly applied to the area that has discoloration, pigmentation, dark spots, and of course dark circles.

I have incorporated pictures of hand swatches in this post to understand the color of the shade I am using. I hope it would be helpful to you to understand the color if you are trying to pick one.

So, I personally feel this concealer would be a great choice for my Indian friends, who are really looking for a go-to concealer with fewer efforts. Believe me, this will save you tons of time if paired with the right setting powder. And yes, I would recommend it to my friends & family.

That’s all for now. I will be back with another review.

Namaste!


The best natural face powder MAC Mineralize skinfinish

This year Black Friday (2021), I wanted to grab a few cosmetics, and for that, I was setting my eyes on emails for discounts, and guess what! I got 50% off on MAC face products. Finally!

That was a moment I could not hold back my temptation to grab Mac mineralize skinfinish powder, after seeing so many good reviews. So I ended up ordering Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter and Mineralize skinfinish natural powder.

But today, let’s talk about MAC Mineralize skinfinish natural powder.

My views on mineralize skinfinish natural powder

Mac describes it as “A luxurious, slow-baked, domed natural face powder with low-level pearlized pigments – M∙A∙C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural provides a dimensional yet natural finish. This baked powder can be used alone, to set the foundation and touch up makeup throughout the day”.

I bought the shade medium-plus. Now I don’t know what’s slow-baked means, but I could understand the texture and its efficiency after using it. 

So first, I tried it on its own, as foundation powder. I could see the beautiful natural sheer coverage powder blending into my skin flawlessly.

I really like its result. The lightweight formula provides the “pretty face” look but not the “no-makeup” look, hope you get my point. As I always mention on my blog posts about my acne problem that keeps coming off and on, and that’s the reason I could see some prominent marks/dark spots on my skin peeking through it. So this powder will probably work best as a setting powder instead of using it as a (foundation powder). Moreover, it does not settle in the fine lines/wrinkles that make me a happy customer 😀.

It could be a great choice as a powder foundation for those who encounter very few acne issues in their lifetime. Again, it is a sheer coverage powder, so one can not expect full coverage, or for that matter, any flawless result.

For me, I am going to use it as a setting powder. I am glad that sheer coverage won’t change my foundation color. I have been using Too Faced setting powder for a while. So now I can say that MAC mineralize would be my next go-to face powder to lock my look for the day.

However, my biggest concern is the dome shape of the powder. It gives me a real hard time swirling around the brush to pick up the product, especially a big fluffy face brush. I could see that it picks up more product than needed, and during the process, some of the powder disperses in the air that gets utterly out of hand. However, I am trying to make it work.

My recommendation

I see this setting powder, a lot better option than spending on loose setting powders that sometimes could result in time-taking work. So I would highly recommend MAC Mineralize skinfinish natural powder to my friends and family. Being said that, kindly make sure you choose the right shade. My shade is NC 35 in MAC studio fix foundation. So medium-plus shade is a perfect match for me. In addition, you can use it as a bronzer by selecting a deeper tone shade according to your skin tone.

Last but not least, it is not a “Matte finish” powder, so ladies with oily skin type, please be aware! Especially in summer, so I would say, try before you buy.

Otherwise, it is a very great product to splurge on.

It’s retail price is $37 (USD) for 10 G / 0.35 US OZ.

Hope you find this post helpful.

Thank you so much.

Namaste!

What do I think about the drugstore Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder highlighter?

“ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD!”

Likewise, all that shines is not a “Highlighter”. So let’s see if it’s true about Wet and Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder.

I am sorta fancy all makeup products, and always very enthusiastic to swatch everything if I could…you can call it my madness. Being said that, I wanted to refrain from spending too much on cosmetics, especially highlighters as I barely use them. After searching for the best drugstore highlighter, I came across Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder.

What do I think about it?

So the shade I bought is Golden Flower Crown. I chose golden so that I can use it as an eyeshadow as well.

Wet and Wild mega glow highlighting powder looked appealing when I first took a glimpse of it at the store. Yeah! It was indeed very shiny and shimmery. I knew this highlighter would solve its purpose by sitting on the top of my cheekbones, brow bone, and cupid’s bow and reflecting light to give me that natural glow.

It is a beautiful drugstore highlighter that gives a subtle glow. Unlike some highlighters that give a prominent shine and are hard to apply (viz. Revolution). Again it depends on how you apply it. However, I love to use a regular brush (Not a fan brush) or fingers to the rescue. It is pretty pigmented. Being said that, you need very little to use it and that will last you long beyond its expiration date 😅. It goes like an easy-breezy highlighter powder. Meaning, it blends effortlessly and won’t let you engage in front of the mirror for a long time.

Undoubtedly, it is a fan-fav highlighter and always in demand.

As far as the color is concerned, I got the Golden Flower Crown and I think this one is way too shiny for me as it has a golden hue but is good for using as an eyeshadow though. I think the “Blosson Glow” would have been a great choice for minimalists like me. Being said, I am still happy with my purchase and looking forward to keeping it in my bag forever.

Final thoughts

Honestly, I think this one is the far best drugstore highlighter available in the market. Everybody knows that we all try to accommodate according to our budget and convenience. Hence, I would definitely recommend it. After all, it’s an art to pull off what you wear.

Retail price varies but I bought from Target at $4.99 (USD).

Pictures and swatches are given below.

Wet and Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder

Just for fun – Do you know that Wikipedia has an info feed about “what is highlighter (cosmetics)” too! Yes! please check it.

I will see you soon with another review post.

Thank you so much!

Namaste!

Must-have MAC eyeshadows for every skin tone

Cult-favorite MAC products and their variety in make-up line make it stand out in the crowd. A glimpse of its collection and arrays of colors are breathtaking, and simply molding us to “want more”. However, a few single eyeshadows are indeed recommendable if decide to splurge on them.

I am a big fan of MAC and I would like to buy everything if I could. But that’s quite not possible. But I am glad to share my viewpoint on the single shadows that I own. I hope it will help some of you to decide if MAC single shadows are really worth splurging on.

In MAC, my foundation shade is NC 35 ( recently recommended by MAC artist). Just for your reference so that it will help you to understand the shade. Well, I am going to emphasize the color than its texture. I believe these eyeshadows will suit almost all skin tones.

From Left Bronze, Sable, Honey Lust, Antiqued and Woodwincked

MAC Woodwinked – Veluxe pearl finish

Mac described it as a Warm antique gold. A very beautiful eye shadow that works like a magic and gives a subtle look. I would say it is warm with a tad bit of rustic gold. It is pigmented shadow and swipes across the lead easily. A single shadow is a solo warrior and works like a magic. My go-to eyeshadow and hooked to it forever. Your daylight look is ready in no time. Give it a try.

MAC Sable – Frost finish

It is described as a Gold-plum w/bronze pearl eye shadow on the MAC website. A great combination of plum with bronze, all-day wearable. However, it can be your savior, especially in a daytime. Rushing somewhere and need a dash of color on the lids, just go for it followed with mascara & eyeliner. Princess is ready! I love this shade.

MAC Bronze – Frost Finish

It is a dark brown with a frost finish. A warm-tone eyeshadow is a perfect blend if you love the touch of a smokey effect. It blends flawlessly and gives a perfect smokey effect in no time. Use it with Kohl or black eye shadow in the outer corner to get that killer sultry look. Voila! you are ready. You will look fabulous no matter how you apply it. A must shade for the to-go pick.

I am wearing Bronze eye shadow in the below images.

MAC Honeylust – Lustre Finish

Honestly, this one is a very common shade & probably dupes will do the same job. Except for one reason, I adore this Bronze-dipped peach shade, as it illuminates & gives a perfect center eyelid shine for a day’s wear. Besides, the shimmery part is best, it does not fall out. Since I have tried some other dupes where it makes application difficult, so for me, “Honeylust” is truly my BFF.

MAC Antiqued – Veluxe pearl finish

MAC described it as an Ash brown with bronze. Instead, it is a reddish bronze eye shadow that is so antique and very pigmented, just don’t forget to make the outer corner of the eye Smokey to enhance your look. Day or night! Show your swag with pretty eyes.

MAC is pricey and it’s recommended to try it before you buy it. Checking shades in the sunlight is the best thing if you want to see the real hues and color of the eye shadow. In fact, even lipsticks are the best if tested in natural light.

Further, I always spend mindfully when it comes to cosmetics. MAC is one of them. Besides, recently I read that make-up products like powder foundation, eye shadow or for that matter, anything which has talc in it, have a life of max 2 years. After that, it is best to stop using it or in other words declutter it.

This post was all about eyes and I hope you like the swatches & find this post helpful.

Thank you so much!

Namaste!

BOBBI BROWN SKIN LONG-WEAR WEIGHTLESS FOUNDATION SPF 15

Today I am going to review liquid foundation By Bobbi Brown. I usually prefer compact powder foundation over liquid but this time I really wanted to try liquid foundation.

In the picture below, you will see Bobbi Brown stick foundation next to a liquid one. I did not intend to order both but it kind of happened that I ended up having them in my makeup kit. So there is a short story behind it and if you wanna know then skip the review and scroll down till the end.

I am going to present my thoughts on liquid foundation and the stick is just for color comparison purposes.

 

Bobbi Brown Skin long-wear weightless Foundation SPF 15

Bobbi Brown claims that :

LONG-WEAR, LIFE-PROOF FORMULA
• 16-hour medium-to-full crease-free coverage.
• Sweat-resistant.
• Non-acnegenic.

What I think about it :

Before I start I would like to mention my skin type. I have a combination skin with T-zone oily occasionally.

“16-hour, medium coverage matte formula” – I really can’t comment on this as at the max I wear foundation for 8-9 hrs or less. So as far as I know it, it won’t budge even in the hot sunny summer of Texas.

The best thing is, It has SPF 15 in it. Little extra protection from the UV rays.

They say it is “Sweat-resistant” but my nose and chin get sweaty in summer all the time so I will rule out this claim as “Sweat-resistant”. In winters, it might be true😉.

When I got this foundation home my face was actually breaking out very badly. I could see so many dark acne marks on my face. Then I saw so many people rave about this foundation and I made up my mind to splurge on it. I am very pleased with my decision. So YES!!! It does not cause acne. It’s my personal experience telling you.

Besides, I like this liquid foundation has about the right amount of consistency, not thick but not runny as well. I am not a fan of it. Apart from its consistency it gives a very natural finish and is definitely buildable.

But there is one drawback (In my opinion), you will have to try to work on your face as soon as possible because it dries fast. And if you try to dab more liquid onto it. Your make-up brush will not forgive you as it sets very quickly as it’s a matte foundation.

It is not a Fragrance-Free foundation. For me, I don’t mind it because the smell is not long-lasting and fades away even before you realized it.

Coverage is buildable and pretty much good with concealing any pigmentation, acne scars, or uneven skin tone. Being said that, you might want to keep a good corrector handy to hide any prominent acne scars or spots to get that flawless look.

As far as Oxidation is concerned. I have noticed that it has an oxidizing tendency. Now I really don’t know if it is the primer I use make it to react when I go out. But Yes! I have experienced it.

Even though it is a non-cakey foundation, I have noticed little dry patches on the skin if I hold the mirror closely. And Yes! I apply moisturizer generously day and night. so dryness is definitely not an issue here.

Yes! It is pricey $50 USD. So if you are happy with your drugstore foundation then I would say buy it during the “Black Friday/Christmas” sale or just skip it 😀 until you are ready for “Hit or Miss” trials.

Short story behind a stick foundation.

Choosing a shade online might be a tricky task or sometimes deceiving checking it on online models. When you try to chat with BB online and if it’s your lucky day you will get the right shade or else 😅 there would be trust issues. I hope you get my point.

Sharing My online chat experience with BB.

BB online Rep. assisted me and suggested Warm Natural 4.5. I contacted them 5 times but out of which 2 said Warm natural and others were telling whatever they want 😂😂😂😂. So finally I chose it and ordered it. And then again I talked to them just to tell them that I need one shade lighter foundation(I think warm natural is a bit more yellow for me) and what I got to hear is that “Natural Tan” is the right shade 🤯 for me. Dang, it !!!

Luckily at the same time, I asked her if the same shade goes for stick foundation and Rep. said “Yes!”.

And Finally, I got my money back Yay!! so no worries.

Then I happened to visit a cosmetic company store during my trip to Indianapolis. There I saw this BB stick on 40% off sale. I could not resist and ended up buying this stick foundation in shade “Natural Tan”. So this color is actually a great match for me but I wish it was a liquid one as stick foundation has actually a very poor coverage.

Stick might be a great choice who have fewer skin issues viz light pigmentation or spots.

My Final Thoughts

I would say this is a good foundation but not very best for the $50 USD if I compare it with Estee Lauder Double wear liquid foundation. However, BB liquid weightless foundation has a “Pump” to dispense the desired amount of product which is so handy even if you are in a hurry it makes application job so easy.

BB liquid skin long-wear weightless foundation is far better than BB stick foundation. As liquid foundation really has a nice finish and looks so natural than stick foundation.

Recently I visited the Ulta store, there while talking to one of the associates I came to know that “Oxidation” is a common issue with BB liquid foundation. Just for FYI.

So what do you think about BB foundations? If you have any tricks or suggestions to avoid oxidation then please let me know.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Taking one start off due to oxidation issue and price. Otherwise, it is a good foundation and a pretty much better choice for acne-prone skin.

Thank you!

Too Faced Travel Size Born This Way Setting Powder – A mini review

Hello Friends!

Today I am going to review Travel Size Born This Way Setting Powder in the shade – Translucent.

If I tell you that I love make up but have tried one or two drugstore setting powders then you might wonder n laugh at me but it’s 100% true. I was a little bit skeptical about loose-setting powders as I was happy with my Estee Lauder compact. Therefore did want to spend more on just loose setting powder.

I see people rave about Laura Mercier’s setting powder which is actually pricey and would like to see if it worth the hype when I am done with this Too faced travel size powder.

Anyways, this powder will never disappoint you. Trust me! Such a beautiful lightweight formula sets the makeup and gives a natural finish look.

Although I am a beginner, the other day I was trying to play with purple eye shadow and did full-face make-up so please ignore my BROWS. I was very excited to use this little guy to set my face with and it really made me happy. You can see me in the picture below. 

So what does it say?

A lightweight powder sets foundation & concealer perfectly providing a silky and luminous natural finish. The formula is infused with hyaluronic acid, which gives a smoother, more youthful appearance. It also helps brighten and boosts skin radiance. It is free of Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, etc. 

What I think about it?

I am quite happy with this travel-size loose setting powder as it gives a flawless finish and looks natural on the face. It seems it really locks the foundation & concealer efficiently. A very fine powder that can be easily inhaled while applying the powder so make sure to use it properly…he he he !!! I mean yeah it is a very ultra-fine formula and gives outstanding results.

I chose the Translucent shade because I knew it is the only shade that can give me a natural finish. So if you running out of your setting powder I would suggest go n grab one travel size first. You get a 1.5g/0.05 Oz product for $16 USD.

Thank you guys so much for reading my post.

Stay awesome !
