Huda Beauty Contour & Strobe Lip Kit in Trophy Wife & Shameless

Hey lovelies!

How are you doing? Today I'm gonna share my thoughts on Huda Beauty's Contour and Strobe Lip kit.It's been about an year that I've been using this set.Yes,I know it's really late,Better late than never! right! Here we go...

                                       


Product description available on Sephora.ae:

What it is:
Inspired by Huda’s trademark pout, the Strobe & Contour Lip Sets are packaged in a covetable lip-shaped tin, making it the perfect gift for lipstick lovers. Carefully curated by Huda herself, each set features a full-size Lip Contour, a Mini Liquid Matte Lipstick in a complementary shade, plus a mini Lip Strobe. 


Shade description:
Trophy Wife & Shameless – Perfect a sophisticated, feminine look with the plummy rose-toned shades of Trophy Wife combined with the rich pink and copper duo-chrome pigments of Shameless.


How to use:
Gorgeous when used individually or together, these sets are also perfect for creating an ombré effect for the illusion of fuller lips. Simply line your lips with the Lip Contour, then fill them in with the Liquid Matte shade before applying the high-shine Lip Strobe for a plumping effect. 

Contour, set, action:
1. Create flawless shape and volume by lining lips with the Lip Contour, fading towards the centre.
2. Apply the Liquid Matte shade all over. Then, wait 30 seconds, before layering these shades with the Lip Strobe, to create a sculpted, voluminous pout that’s visible from every angle. 
3. For the matte lip lovers, wear it Huda’s signature way and blot off the excess for a glistening shimmer without the gloss.

My opinion:

Price : AED 142

Packaging:
Look at that gorgeous packaging! It's so attractive.I really like that lip-tin.It looks amazing.

The lip contour pencil comes in a standard size.Shade name is mentioned on the pencil.

The very famous liquid matte lipstick comes in a frosted tube.Shade is written at the bottom of the tube.Shade can be seen through the tube clearly.

The tube containing the lip-strobe looks fantastic as it looks very classy.When those pinky-rosy particles reflect and shine then the lips look fabulous.
                              


                                       



Formula:

Lip Contour pencil:
  • Creamy formula
  • Soft to touch and glides on smoothly on the lips
  • Doesn't skip and we don't need to work too hard to use this pencil                                       




Liquid matte lipstick.
  • Vert pigmented,One swipe is enough to cover up the pigmented lips
  • Very comfortable
  • Glides on smoothly
  • Not powder-finish
  • After applying,it turns into a matte after some time.It has a demi-matte finish to be honest
  • Doesn't enhance lip-lines much           




Lip Strobe i.e.Metallic Lip Glosss in the shade Shameless
  • Little tacky to touch
  • Not too runny not too thick.I like the consistency.Very smooth.
  • Beautiful shade with gold particles
  • Not gritty or coarse
  • Very comfortable and shiny

                                


Shade
Trophy Wife lip contour pencil is a Dark pink shade with heavy blue tone.

Trophy wife is a rosewood pink lipstick.Not too loud and bright.Very much wearable and can be used on a daily basis.

Shameless is a pretty and attractive lip topper.This one is a great product and works well with other lipsticks very well.

Swatches:


How I like to use this set
I outline my lips using the Trophy wife lip contour and then apply the Liquid matte lipstick.I like to layer this liquid lipstick,two layers at max.I apply the lip strobe on the center of my lips to achieve that gorgeous and luscious lip-effect.
On a daily basis,I like using the Liquid Matte lipstick as it is.

Yet to try the ombre lips using this lip-kit though.

Final word : It's a great lip-kit.High-end product.Nice Quality.

Rating : 4/5 (
-0.5 as I don't really like sharpening lip pencils...yeah lazy girl and sharpening such pencils(product embedded in a plastic tube) causes lots of loss of product
-0.5 as the matte lipstick is not transfer-proof as such i.e. not long lasting if you eat something oily else it stays for long)

Huge Haul : Bath & Body Works Bodycare Products Feb 2019

Hey lovelies! 

How are you doing?

Today, I am gonna share my Bath and Body Works haul with you.

I visited Bath and Body Works recently as I wanted to stock-up up my favourite products.

Lets's see what all I've got!Here we go...

Apart from the Paris Amour and Japanese Cherry Blossom collections,Sweet Pea is one of my fav ranges from the Bath & Body Works.I picked quite a few products from this collection.

Sweet pea body scrub AED 85  Sweet-pea-foaming-sugar-scrub

It's a sugar-based scrub. Particles are coarse in nature.Once it comes in contact with water it melts down easily.Easy to work with and use.Leaves skin feeling nourished post usage.
                             


Sweet pea body cream AED 85 Sweet-pea-ultra-shea-body-creamLet me say...it's one of the creams available in the market.Very soft and smooth to touch and glides on really nicely.Keeps the skin moisturized and happy.
Sweet pea hand cream  AED 30 Bath-Body-Works-Nourishing-CreamIt is a thick cream, but, definitely not sticky
Gets absorbed easily and quickly into the skin and leaves the skin feeling soft and fresh.
A small coin-sized amount of the product does it's job well.



Sweet pea body mist (travel-size)  AED 39 Sweet-pea-travel-size-fine-fragrance-mistIt has got a floral-fruity sweet smell.Lingers for really long on the skin,
Key notes: Sweet Pea, Watery Pear, Sheer Freesia, Luscious Raspberry, Soft Musk 
                                              

Sweet pea hand soap
Heavily perfumed hand wash.Cleanses well.No dryness.Just cannot get enough of this collection on the whole as you can see already.The entire collection in amazing.Especially the body cream and hand cream,these products smell amazing and keep the skin moisturized...yay!
                                    
  • Two hand sanitizers with a watermelon - shaped holder
Pink Petals & Peach Sparkles.Name says it all.Great fragrance and not too overwhelming.
I love mini-sized products.These sanitizers were too cute to pass.I thought to give these cute-lil-products a try.These are very travel friendly and can be used efficiently on the go.



                               

Also,I purchased a watermelon shaped sanitizer-holder so that I can fit-in the product and carry along whenever and wherever I want to.Worth trying I must say!

                               
                               
Japanese Cherry Blossom body cream and body mist AED 32 and AED 39 respectively

This range is another favourite of mine.The body cream smells incredible when topped-up with the body mist.I cannot explain how surreal this combo feels.You must try it.I purchased the mini travel-sized ones this time.
                        


Sweet Pea Candle! Sweet-pea-1-wick-candle
Once burnt,it make the entire room smell fruity and sweet.Very calming and soothing to the senses.

Paris amour scented candle!

Yet again! this one is amazing as well. I love Paris Amour collection to bits,it's pinky-rosy packaging definitely attracts me...like always!


                                      




Both the candles are priced at AED 40 each.

Styling Denim Shirt in Three Easy ways!


Hi Fam!

How are you doing?

It's been a long time that I've put up a blog-post.So,here I am to share my styling tips with the Universe. :) #styledbyglamnglaze

Today I am gonna let you know how to style a simple denim shirt in three different ways...so let's get started.

First Look:(From left side,first pic in the collage):
Striped clothing piece is one of my personal favorites.For the first look,I chose black and white striped tee,jet black jeggings and wore a blue denim shirt.Left it unbuttoned.Wore a pair of sunglasses -white-framed to sync up the whole look.Completed the look with white Adidas sneakers!




Second Look (Denim on Denim - Middle pic in the collage):

I chose to pair my denim shirt with denim shorts.Tied the shirt's loose ends as a knot for a smarter-look.Accessorized the look by adding hoop earrings,tan colored belt,bag and finished off the look by wearing plain white sneakers #sneakerlover :D
This look is my favourite.


Third Look (Last pic in the collage):

Here I chose to wear black spaghetti top with ripped denim skirt.Denim shirt as a cover-up.Accesorized the look by adding Black-framed sunglasses,black coloured ankle boots.Finished off the look with a white backpack.
Belt,sunglasses and boots matched.So,entire outfit looked cohesive in my opinion.

Which look did you like the most? Do lemme know in the comment-section below.

That's it for today.I will definitely see you super duper soon with another interesting blog-post...adios!!!

Take care my lovely fam. :)

Review : Milani Cosmetics Amore Matte Lip Creme Lipsticks

Hi Beauties!

Hope you are having a great day!

Today, I am going to share my thoughts on the Milani Cosmetics Amore Matte Lip Creme liquid lipsticks.There are around thirty three shades available on their website.I purchased two lipsticks.Shades Amore & Emotion.So let's get started!


About Milani:
Milani cosmetics is a cruelty-free makeup brand based out in Los Angeles,USA.
Milani Cosmetics and beauty products, includes face makeup, nail color and a full range of top quality makeup products, for women of any age, style or skintone.

                                           


Product Description:
It’s time to put your lipsticks on notice. The Amore Matte Lip Crème has arrived. This revolutionary, highly saturated liquid-to-matte formula dries to a soft, velvety finish for fuller-looking lips. Its double-sided, flexible plush applicator hugs the contours of lips, working to lock in bold, opaque color. Non-sticky, smooth and ready for all-night wear (up to 16 hours!) our Amore Matte Lip Crème is the ultimate transfer resistant kiss-me-matte.

Price : AED 45-50

Quantity : 0.21 OZ / 6g

Shelf-life : 12 months

Ingredients:
Isododecane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Kaolin, Flavor (Aroma), Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Synthetic Beeswax, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate. +/- May Contain: , Red 30 Lake (CI 73360), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Red 6 Lake (CI 15859), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Red 27 Lake (CI 45410), Red 28 (CI 45410), Iron Oxide (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

My Experience:

Shades:

  • 32, Emotion : It's a brown lipstick with a hue of red in it. Looks pretty and definitely not for the faint of heart.It's a vampy deep brownish-red that elevates the mood.If you enjoy wearing bold lipsticks, you might wanna check this shade out.

  • 22, Amore : It's a beautiful and vibrant red with a hint of pink. Looks like a reddish-pink shade and brightens up the complexion / overall makeup-look. I love this shade to bits.Perfect for party wear or any festive occasion.

Swatches:                                            

In Pic : Amore Matte Lip Creme lipstick-swatches


Packaging:

The lipstick comes in a rectangular acrylic-tube packaging. It's a see-through tube,so we can easily see the lipstick-colour through the packaging.The important details like shelf-life ,product quantity etc are mentioned on the tube.The shade name and number are mentioned at the bottom of the tube-packaging.The twist open lid is plastic and of pure yellow gold colour. The flat-sponge tip applicator is very easy to work with.It actually helps in lining out the lips.Overall , the packaging looks very classy and attractive. The packaging is sturdy and can be carried easily while travelling...on the go i.e. travel-friendly packaging.                     

In Pic : Milani's Liquid Lipstick in the shade "Emotion"




In Pic : Milani's Liquid Lipstick in the shade "Amore"



Formula & Texture:
  • The lipsticks in this collection have got a slight vanilla-like smell.Not strong.The smell goes away as the time passes and is definitely not bothersome
  • Creamy formula with powder-matte-finish
  • Non-sticky formula
  • Quickly dries up on the lips (around one minute)
  • Soft to touch and very pigmented!
  • One dip into the tube is sufficient to get full opaque coverage on lips.Girls having pigmented lips can rejoice! Wait wait wait...this is the case with the shade "Emotion".When we apply the shade "Amore" we can clearly see the lip-pigmentation peeping through the lipstick.Definitely need two coats of the lipstick in order to get full opacity.
  • Re-application  is very easy.No need to remove entire layer and then re-apply, just apply on top of the already existing lipstick.It doesn't make the lips look crusty or pathetic.The lipstick sits beautifully on the lips.
Effective/ Worth?
  • The product glides like a dream on the lips
  • Non-patchy application.Very easy to apply and distribute over the lips...evenly
  • The powder matte finish looks really very pretty and I love it
  • Comfortable to wear , but, a tad bit drying
  • Completely transfer-proof to a great extent.99%.Yay!
  • Smudge-proof and water-proof
  • Doesn't enhance lip-lines severely
  • Very lightweight formula,feels like nothing is there on the lips
  • The applicator is awesome.Easy to hold(grip) and apply the product
  • Both the shades stained the lips (whenever applied)
  • The shade range is amazing...I must say.
Longevity:
The lipsticks in this collection have an average staying power of about three to four hours(max).
Survived light snacks very well.These lipsticks don't really survive heavy meals.Post-meal,the lipstick goes away from the center of the mouth and you need to do a touch-up.
In case you don't eat oily or greasy food then the lipstick will stay on the lips for about 
5-6 hours(depends) and then fade away evenly leaving a slight stain behind.

Cons:
  • Enhances dry patches/flakes on the lips
  • Lips feel somewhat dry. Solution : Exfoliate your lips beforehand. Apply a lip-balm underneath. 
  • Gives butt-hole lips after having a meal.Oily food breaks down the product easily.

Will I re-purchase?
Yes,if ever I get through a full lipstick-tube. :D
I like the formula of these lipsticks.On a side note, both the lipsticks will surely suit all the skin tones across the globe.Take my word,but, only if you like to go that bold and bright.I personally love wearing all sorts(well, there are exceptions...of course!) of shades that tend to suit my apricot-skin tone.Just because of this reason I went ahead and picked up these two shades from the entire collection.I am happy with these lipsticks.  But, yes would like to let you all know that these lipsticks
make my lips feel a little dry (bearable).Layering after finishing off the meal is a necessity for sure. I would like to purchase a different shade from the Amore Matte Lip Creme collection called
"Gorgeous". :)

Rating : 3.5/5

Yes, definitely.
  • Affordably priced.For the price being paid we are getting a lot of product.Great quality I must say.

  • Great for daily-use.Perfect rosy pink shade that can be used on a daily-basis
  • Easily available across the country

Con:
Enhances dry patches and fine lines a lot.Exfoliate your lips before applying this lipstick.I would highly suggest applying a lip balm prior to using this lipstick else your lips might feel very dry and flaky(approximately after two hours of application).

Yes

Overall, I would like to say that you should definitely give this lipstick a try.I am planning to check out other shades from the Matt Matt Matt lipstick collection.Very reasonably priced lipsticks.Must try!

So, let's get started...shall we?

About Essence Cosmetics:

The products are really affordable and are of high-quality.Essence products are cruelty free.

So,the nude pink coloured satin tube with a black twist open cap looks so gorgeous.
The details like quantity, shelf-life are mentioned on the packaging. The weight of the tube is very light.Travel-friendly packaging. The lid closes tightly enough to avoid product spillage.Love the girlie packaging.

The formula is moussy, but, towards the drier version.It dries quickly.The texture is creamy.The product is very pigmented and dark black in colour. Lightweight formula....must say.

Effective?
Yes.
  • The fully loaded paddle brush works nicely on the lashes.It helps in coating the lashes  around inner-corner of the eyes.Easy to coat the lower lashes.
  • The mascara curls the lashes too. Holds the curl for a long time. But, then at the end of the day the effect was gone!
  • Very comfortable on eyes. Doesn't feel heavy on the lashes
  • Each time we dip the wand into the bottle,enough product comes out and helps in coating the lashes.
  • Very affordably priced and easily available.It's a steal.
  • Lengthens the lashes in one to two coats and gives the desired volume after three coats!
  • Separates the lashes nicely.
  • The effect of the mascara stayed around 7-8 hrs (in my case) until I went ahead and removed the product from the lashes.
  • Water-resistant mascara , but , not waterproof. Be aware if you are looking strictly for a water proof one.Skip this mascara.
  • Flaked ever so little and didn't give raccoon-eye-look.
Con:
  • Need to apply at least three coats of the product to get the desired volume.Of course,over coating the lashes with the product will result in clumpy-looking lashes which will not look good.Avoid over application. If you are in a hurry and want this mascara to work in a jiffy.It won't happen.It might lengthen the lashes and might not volumize them quickly. 
  • 18hr curl and hold is a big claim. This mascara doesn't stand up to the mark as expected! In case you are looking for a mascara that stays for a very long time on the curled-lashes this mascara might disappoint you.

Will I re-purchase?
Yes, definitely.This mascara is amazing and very affordable. Really good quality mascara...love it.

Overall, I would like to say that this is a nice mascara.I am loving it.It has not disappointed me.It lengthens the lashes beautifully plus volumizes too. Yay.All in all I recommend trying out this mascara.No complains as I have tried various high-end mascaras and faced disappointment! This mascara is quite affordable and works fine. Can be used on a daily basis as it doesn't dramatize the lashes a lot.
