My Birthday Haul

Hey Lovelies….

Today I am going to do a birthday haul blog post. This is my first post of a kind. I am doing not this to show off but couple of my friends were asking what I got for my birthday so I decided to write a blog about it. I didn’t get much of presents. Very few but totally mind blowing. If you are interested in this kind of post then please keep on reading.

Lipcote Lipstick Sealer


Hey Lovelies….

I am a lipstick eater. If I go to any function, after an hour or so, I have to refresh my lipstick which can be a bit annoying sometimes. So I decided to give Lipcote a try and see how this product works.





Lipcote is a clear liquid comes in a small glass bottle with a brush applicator. When I received it first, I was shocked with the amount of product but they claim 100 applications out of one bottle. When I opened it for the first time, the fragrance really put me off. It has very strong alcoholic fragrance but once apply, its gone. It also stings a bit but not very bad.



Application:

First I scrubbed my lips and applied a lip balm. This step is not necessary but why I took an extra was because of the essential oils in Lipcote and some reviews from previous user claiming it to dries out lips. Before getting started with the lip colour, it is important to wipe any excess balm from lips or otherwise there is a chance of lip colour to slip. The scrub I uses is Lush Santa and lip balm is Burt Bees. Never mind my balm tin, it is quite beaten up




I followed instruction exactly the same way what was recommended on the box. Lip liner, Lipstick, blotting, repeat lipstick then Lipcote, wait for 3 minutes and let the product dry completely with lips apart . Well let me add that it is a time consuming process but with bold lips, taking an extra measure can make a huge difference.




Findings:

Lipcote claims a kiss proof lipstick. I am not really sure about it. Because my lips did leave some light mark on glass but if consider the amount of colour I applied and the formula of lipstick, then it can get an edge. You can use matte lipstick and apply a lip gloss on top as well.

I used a creamy formula for lipstick to check lipcote real deal. And I must say that I liked this product. After good four hours with eating and drinking the lipstick looked fresh and stayed on place. Seriously no smudge, no budge. I didn't feel my lips dry but still on a safe side I applied my TBS Satsuma lip balm on top of lipcote. And it gave my lips a very nice finish. The Body Shop Satsuma balm has shimmer in it. 

Over all I am happy with my purchase and will definitely buy it again. And Yes, it works very well with glossy finish lipstick as well.


I hope you like this review. Please leave your comment below and share your thoughts


Cheers

Biggest Regrets of 2013 (Skin care edition)

Hey Lovelies….

I know that I am a bit late in this bandwagon but I really wanted to make sure what should go in this article. Because this is my first blog post of such kind and I don’t want to misguide anyone.
I am not an impulsive shopper, so there are usually very little misses for me. But if I really want to buy something, I do a very deep research.

But somehow, people talked me through to buy these products and they were absolutely rubbish. Reviews are solely based on my personal experience.

Happy New Year 2014 !!!!


Hey Lovelies….

So, 2013 is behind us and 2014 is calling upon us to explore new horizons. I am not much of New Year resolutions person, but definitely there are few things which I really want to make part of my life, few gorgeous products which I am dreaming for long time and few little objectives to achieve.
