Chambor dazzle eye liner pencil Review, Swatches

Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing Chambor dazzle eye liner pencil. I have the shades Black, Purple, Grey, Teal and Gold from this range. From the no. of shades I own, you can guess as to how much I love these eye pencils! The first one I picked for the purple one and the formula and staying power was so good that I purchased more shades later.

Price: Rs 445

Quantity : 0.28 g

Chambor dazzle eye liner pencil

What the website says:

Chambor’s New DAZZLE EYEPENCILS with its innovative formula allows smooth application and perfect color with a one stroke precise application. At a party or even for everyday wear the colorful dazzling pencil light’s up your eyes.

The transformation from a dark room to a magically lit up one will never fail to charm, attract or DAZZLE you…. Much like Chambor’s New DAZZLE EYEPENCILS with its new skate formula that allows for smooth application and perfect colour with a one stroke precise application. At a party or even for daily wear this pencil and the colours it is available in will go a long way to Dazzle you.

  • No Animal Ingredients.
  • Non – Comodogenic.
  • Dermatologist Tested.
  • Opthalmologist Tested.
My take on the product :
Packaging: It comes in a one-way twist up liner form encased in a plastic body made of the same shade as the liner. The body has silver patterns and the shade name written in silver lettering. The packaging is quite attractive but the one way twist up form is not the most convenient to use. The cap doesn’t fit with a click so one does not feel sure whether the pencil is closed or if accidentally the tip has been damaged.

Formula : The product gets full marks on the formula. Texture is super creamy yet not so creamy that it will transfer to lashes on contact. It glides beautifully on the lid and can be used on the lower lash line too. It is however not advisable to use it on waterline since some of the shades contain very fine shimmer and that may irritate the eye. The pencil is very pigmented and gives good color in single swipe. I however like going over it 2-3 times for an intense color.The tip of a brand new piece is sharp but it gets blunt on use and thus cannot be used to draw thin lines.

The formula is long stay and does not go off till removed by an oil based makeup remover. I have worn this pencil on a long train journey and 24 hours later also the pencil was intact on my lids. Some of the shades have a pearl finish and the shimmer is very fine and does not hurt the eye at all. It is long staying and thus is not removed in a single swipe. 4-5 swipes are needed . A better option is to let the cleanser sit on it for a few seconds, then it comes off in 1 swipe.

Shade selection: It comes in 9 shades- Black, Brown, Blue, Green, Purple, Teal, Gold, Silver and Gray. Most shades have a pearl/glossy finish.

The GOOD about Chambor Dazzle eye liner  pencil –
1. Attractive packaging of colored plastic to identify shades easily.
2. Creamy formula that glides on lids easily.
3. Very pigmented.
4. Long stay formula- stays until removed with cleanser.
5. Waterproof.
6. Glossy/pearl finish that gives a bright look to the eyes.
7. Good shade selection.
8. No animal ingredients.
9. Opthalmologically and Dermatologically tested.
The NOT-SO-GOOD about Chambor Dazzle eye liner pencil –
1. Packaging : cap doesn’t close with a click. One way twist up form- if you twist up more than you need, you cannot retract it.
2. Doesn’t remove very easily.
3. Pricey for given quantity (0.28 g)
4. Cannot draw thin lines with it as tip becomes blunt.
Overall Verdict: It is creamy, pigmented , long stay pencil packaged in an attractive but not very convenient one way twist up form. The formula is brilliant but it is expensive especially for the given quantity. The shade selection is good and shades have a glossy pearl finish that looks very attractive on the eyes. I was drawn to this range because of its formula but with more reasonable options like Faces available, I would skip these.
Rating : 3.75/5
Will I repurchase: With similar formula available at half the price in other brands, I will not be repurchasing these.

Lotus Herbals Pure Color lipstick : Review, swatches and FOTD

Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing one my favorite budget buys- Lotus Herbals pure color lipstick. Retailing at Rs 225 this lipstick is a great product for those on a budget and even otherwise.   I own 3 shades from this range –

Rosewood (natural brown with hint of pink, MLBB shade) , Pink Blush (warm rosy pink), Peach creme (peachy coral with brown undertone)

Price : Rs 225

Quantity : 4.2 g

Lotus herbals pure color lipstick 'Rosewood'

What the website says about the product : 

‘Pure Colors’ is a range of 12 exciting moisturizing lip colors in pinks and browns. There are 6 shades of each type. They have natural extracts of Jojoba and Aloe Vera. The unique product qualities are: – Uniform dispersion of pigments – Rich payoff – Smooth application

Active ingredients : 

JOJOBA – Jojoba helps promote healing of the skin. – Its antimicrobial properties in addition to the chemical composition that closely resembles skin’s natural sebum, makes it easy to absorb and non-allergic even in the most sensitive individual.

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT : 

Packaging : It comes in a beige and gold packaging. The packaging is moderately sturdy though one of my pieces feels a little flimsy and has opened up during travelling though there was no damage to the lipstick. One end of the lipstick has a sticker with the shade name. Its a little inconvenient to find the right one when you have more than one lipstick of this range.

Texture, Moisturization and Pigmentation : The texture is smooth and it glides easily on the lips. It is neither too ‘balmy’ nor too dry. Its just the right texture. Does not accentuate the dryness or fine lines of the lips, instead gives a moisturized look to the lips. Pigmentation is awesome- single swipe gives good color which can be built up in intensity in 3-4 swipes. It is quite moisturizing, makes lips soft and smooth. Very dry lips might not find it very comfortable though.

See swatches and looks with Pink Blush and Peach creme HERE, HERE and HERE 

Lasting power : Lasts about 3-4 hours on me including meals. In fact, it lasts me more than other more expensive lipsticks I own. The color fades into an even tint after 2.5-3 hours. This is more than I’d expect from a lipstick priced at Rs 225! Does not settle into lines, smudge or bleed as time passes though can’t stay about the darker shades.

Shade selection : It has an impressive and complete shade selection- from pinks to peaches to lilacs to maroons and browns. It even has a gold and a greyish shade which could be great for layering.

TOP (l-r) :  642 Sheer fuchsia, 643 Hot Plum

MIDDLE (l-r ) : 644 Lilac Beauty, 665 Sassy Mocha, 690 Perky peach, 640 Carnation, 645 Orchid Kiss, 641 Rosewood

The GOOD about  Lotus Herbals pure color lipstick :

1. Like the beige and gold packaging.

2. The texture is smooth and soft- not to balmy but not dry either.

3. Good moisturization- makes my lips soft.

4. Pigmented is good- gives opaque and buildable coverage

5. Lasts comfortably on my lips for 3-4 hours including meals.

6. Contains Jojoba oil  and aloe vera as ingredients.

7. Wide shade selection- has a shade for everyone

8. Does not smudge or bleed or settle into fine lines.

9. Gives even tint on lips as it fades.

10. Has a mild pleasant fragrance.

11. Awesome quantity and quality at Rs 225!

12. 100% vegetarian.

The NOT-SO-GOOD about  Lotus Herbals pure color lipstick :

1. Packaging is not very sturdy and the color is hard to identify from outside- have to read labels to find the right shade.

2. Full list of ingredients is not mentioned.

3. Not very moisturizing, might not be very comfortable for dry lips.

This is how ‘Rosewood’ looks on me –

Lotus herbals pure color lipstick 'Rosewood'

Overall Verdict : Its a moisturizing, pigmented and smooth textured lip color priced very reasonably at Rs 225. The lasting power is quite decent : 3-4 hours including meals.  Does not settle into lines, feather or bleed though can’t say for darker shades. Fades evenly into a tint on the lips. Its not easy to identify shades from outside, the packaging could have been more user friendly and sturdier. Shade selection is very wide and covers all basic shades. Highly recommend this to everyone!

Rating : 4.5/5 (For reasons listed above)

Will I repurchase : Yes. I’m loving the shade ‘Rosewood’ these days and have my eyes on ‘Red Rose’

The Body Shop Vitamin E Face mist REVIEW

Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing a product that has become a staple in my everyday makeup routine. My skin goes through cycles of normal /combination/ oily and dry weather or AC environments tend to dehydrate my skin especially around the nose and mouth. Generally after applying compact I would notice some dry patches of my face but skipping compact would make my skin oily after some time.

To solve this problem, I used rosewater spray on my face after completing my makeup (by filling up rose water in an empty Lotus Basiltone spray bottle). That did help to some extent but I’d generally end up with more than required rosewater on my face. I almost bought MAC Fix+ on visits to the MAC Store many times but couldn’t bring myself to spend Rs 800 on a facial mist! Finally, I picked up this cheaper alternative to MAC Fix+ from The Body Shop on a recent visit home with my Mum.

The Body Shop Vitamin E facial mist

The Body Shop facial mists come in 2 ranges- The Vitamin E one priced at Rs 595 and The Vitamin C one priced at Rs 745.

The Body Shop Vitamin E facial mist

Quantity : 100 ml

What the website says about the product :  A quick skin pick-me up and excellent for setting make-up. Spritz it on for instant refreshment, moisture, and protection. With a delicate rosewater scent.

Contains : Vitamin E – Is a naturally powerful and one of the best antioxidants that help protect the skin against damaging environmental elements, such as the sun, pollution and cigarette smoke. Helps neutralise free radicals, which are destructive molecules that attack cell

Glycerine – Is an effective moisturiser which helps improve softness and maximise hydration.

Liposomes and lecithin – Help the skin quickly absorb the vitamin e and restore the skin’s moisture balance.

Tips : The Vitamin E Face Mist can be sprayed over make-up to seal it after applying. Carry it with you while travelling, especially if you are flying long haul.

Instructions : Close your eyes and hold the bottle 10 cm away from your face. Spray onto the face once or twice and allow to dry.

Ingredients : 

The Body Shop Vitamin E facial mist

 My take on the product :

Packaging :  It comes in a pretty baby pink colored plastic bottle with a pump spray at the top. The spray part is covered with a transparent plastic cap. The packaging is quite sturdy and the cap fits well over the pump. I’ve traveled with it and I did not face any problem.  The spray does not give a wet shower on you face- held at the right distance, it gives just the right amount of product. The one is that the body is opaque so I have no idea how much product I’m using or how much is left.

The Body Shop Vitamin E facial mist

Fragrance : It has a light rosewater fragrance which is quite refreshing. The fragrance fades within 2-3 minutes of application.

About the mist : The product is watery, like rose water and does not make the skin the oily or greasy on spraying. I generally spray it on my face after completing my makeup and it removes the powdery look I tend to get after applying compact sometimes. It gives a dewy hydrated look to my face and settles my makeup. I use 2 spritzes on my face- one on the left and one on the right so that my entire face is covered. I’ve used this and gone out in the sun and my face still looks fresh after 3-4 hours outside. I use it sometimes to moisten brushes for wet application of eye shadows or on foundation brush while applying foundation and it works well. I have not used MAC Fix+ so don’t know it compares to it but I love this product ! I use this everyday before I step out and I love the healthy look it gives to my skin.

The GOOD about The Body Shop Vitamin E facial mist :

1. Packaging is pretty and sturdy- Travel friendly, hygienic and easy to use.

2. Pump is quite good and dispenses a light mist over the face when held at proper distance.

3. Refreshing rose water fragrance that diffuses after a few minutes.

4. Removes powdery or dehydrated look from the face.

5. Gives a dewy healthy look to my skin- does not make it oily or greasy.

6. Settles my makeup.

7.Can be used to wet eye shadows or to moisten brushes/sponges while applying makeup.

The NOT-SO-GOOD about The Body Shop Vitamin E facial mist :

1. Packaging is opaque so can’t see how much product is getting consumed.

2. EXPENSIVE! I love this product but I’m hoping one bottle would last me the summers.

3. Contains parabens.

Overall Verdict: It is a light watery facial mist infused with rosewater fragrance that gives a healthy dewy moisturized look to the skin and settles the makeup. It is must-have for me in the summers especially because heavy moisturizing or skipping compact makes my skin greasy but compact topped with this spray helps it stay hydrated and non-greasy for a long time. The scent is quite refreshing and fades within few minutes. Would have preferred transparent packaging so that one can have an idea how much product is being consumed.  Can be used to moisten brushes/sponges for wet application of products. It is definitely better than plain rose water but I don’t know how it compares with MAC Fix+.

I am very happy with this product and would recommend it to everyone. It’ll work well with all skin types. I do find it a little expensive but I’m hoping this one bottle would last me the summer after which I wouldn’t need it.

Rating : 4.5/5 (for reasons listed above)

Will I repurchase : Yes, for next summers.

Faces creme matte lip gloss ’03 Deep Lilac’ Review, Swatch and FOTD

Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing Faces creme matte lip gloss in shade ’03 Deep Lilac’. Faces is a recent discovery of mine and I’ve loving their products so far! The product being reviewed is similar to Bourjois so delicate lip creme lipstick and NYX soft matte lip creme.

Price : Rs 399

Quantity : not specified

Faces creme matte lip gloss : 03 Deep Lilac (lip balm for size comparison)

What the outer carton says about the product :

– made from Flex form complex which immediately defines and smoothens the lip

– it is easy to apply, offers complete coverage and helps keep lips soft and shiny foreve

– dermatologically tested.

My take on the product :

PACKAGING :
It comes in a round bottom plastic tube form. The cap is black plastic and the rest of the body is transparent so its easy to spot the lipstick when kept with others. It has a sponge tip applicator inside which is of good quality. It has a sticker at one end specifying the shade name and number. The packaging is quite sturdy but the tube tends to get messy around its mouth. I’ve used the product only 3-4 times till now the part where the cap screws on to the tube is already messy with the product. The applicator doesn’t pick up a lot of
product at one time. I have to dip it in once more to cover my lips.

TEXTURE , MOISTURIZATION and PIGMENTATION : The texture is that of a smooth cream, its not a runny liquid, it more like thick butter or cream. The consistency is perfect for easy application. The creme formula has a smooth matte finish on the lips. Pigmentation is excellent- it is opaque and gives full coverage in single swipe hiding any pigmentation one may have quite effectively. It is not moisturizing but its not really drying either. It feels quite comfortable on the lips. I have slightly dry lips and I did not feel any stretchy or tight feeling on my lips.  However, it won’t suit chapped lips.

SHADE no. 3 DEEP LILAC : The shade is as the name says, a deep lilac/mauve shades that lightens to a more pinkish shade with time/meals. It is one of those shades that are not too bright but neither too subtle. Worn with just mascara and sunscreen/compact, it gives a nice statement lip that is work/college appropriate too. It might seem too dark in the tube but its not so on the lips.

Faces creme matte lip cream 03 Deep Lilac - swatch

FRAGRANCE : It has strong  very yummy butterscotch kind of smell which vanishes within 2-3 minutes of application. People who like their makeup products unscented might not like it. I personally love it! 😛

STAYING POWER : The staying power is quite good. It stayed on my lips for 5+ hours including 2 meals and lots of fluid intake. The impressive part was that it didn’t transfer onto cup/bottle (see picture) while taking fluids. It takes about 8-10 minutes to settle after which is it becomes non-transferable. I had in fact taken a meal right after applying it and that lightened it a bit but it still stayed on for more than 5 hours, lightening with time but giving an even tint to the lips. Because of the meal, it faded more on the inner side of the  lower lip giving the impression of having used a lip liner (since the product at the outline of lips remained intact).
Overall, I’m very happy with the staying power of this lipstick.

The GOOD about  Faces creme matte lip gloss ’03 Deep Lilac’
1. Packaging is sturdy in a transparent tube which allows easy identification of the shade.
2. Applicator is of good quality.
3. Texture is smooth and creamy, glides easily on lips.
4. Pigmentation is good- opaque and full coverage in single swipe
5. Not drying like many other long wear lipsticks. Not moisturizing either.
6. Stays on for 5-6 hours including meals with even fading as time passes.
7. Even when almost faded, gives a nice even tint on the lips.
8. Does not settle into fine lines.
9. Claims to be dermatologically tested.
10. Does not smudge, feather or bleed.
11. Gives a smooth, non-drying matte finish to the lips.
12. Has a nice butterscotch fragrance.
The NOT-SO-GOOD about Faces creme matte lip gloss ’03 Deep Lilac 
1. Tube tends to get messy around the mouth.
2. Ingredient list and quantity not given.
3. Not moisturizing. Will not suit people with very dry or chapped lips.
4. Have to dip in for more product to cover the lips. Applicator does not pick enough product in one time.
5. The name is quite a mouthful and misleading- there is nothing glossy about the lipstick!
6. Some people might not like the fact that it has a strong fragrance.
Here is how it looks on me.
I’m not supposed to wear anything except sunscreen on my face for 3-4 days (I got a salicylic acid peel done- 1 sitting only) so I’m only wearing Lotus 3-in-1 matte sunscreen here with Maybelline colossal volume mascara.

FACES creme matte lip gloss :03 Deep Lilac FOTD

FACES creme matte lip gloss :03 Deep Lilac FOTD

Overall Verdict : The formula , texture and pigmentation of this lipstick gets full marks. It gives a long wear (5-6 hr) smooth matte finish to the lips which is not too drying. It doesn’t transfer, feather, smudge or bleed once is settles (8-10 min after application). The packaging could have been better (esp the mess around the mouth of the tube) though. The particular shade is a deep lilac shade that is quite versatile- can be worn even without any makeup on face and it gives a nice statement lip sort of look.
Most of the cons listed are not very big issues for me and I really like this lipstick! If you do not severe dry, chapped lips, this is a great decently long wearing lipstick for you. I’d recommend everyone to try out this range of lipstick from Faces.
Rating : 4.5/5
Will I repurchase : Yes. Will check out the other shades also.
