Product Review: Sugar Liquid Lipstick – Brazen Raisin

I’m a sucker for liquid matte lipsticks and so I decided to buy a couple of shades of the Sugar Cosmetics Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick.

The Shade Brazen Raisin is a dark burgundy shade which compliments the Indian skin tone beautifully. It has an undertone of brown so don’t apply more than one coat.  Apply a single layer since it’s very well pigmented and dries up rather quickly. On drying up, it’s completely matte and not glossy at all. One thing to keep in mind is that Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipsticks are extremely dry so moisturize and scrub your lips well before you wear the lipstick on.  It comes in a travel friendly box packaging. The lipstick comes in a clear bottle with an applicator attached to the cap. The lasting power is great, infact I found it a little hard to take it off. So eat, drink and be least bothered about a touch up! With a great pricing, we would definitely recommend this one.

Product Review: Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick – Icon

My current favourite work wear lip shade is the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick – Icon. A lovely Pinkish Nude, I got this one from Dubai and the brand is available at most of the Sephora outlets in Dubai.

The shade “Icon,” is described as a classic peachy pink and when you apply it, it does look more peachy. However, on drying up, it darkens and looks more nude and very attractive. It’s perfect for the Indian skin tone. Extremely well pigmented and just one swipe is enough for the shade to stay on. For a gloss, it stays relatively long say about 4-6 hours. The packaging is great too, quite appealing. The gloss bottle is packed in a cardboard container (check picture). A little steep on the pricing, we would totally recommend this if you’re checking out the best matte lip colours out there.

Product Review: Streax Pro Vita Gloss Hair Serum

Streax Pro Vita Gloss Hair Serum
Streax Pro Vita Gloss Hair Serum

Rains = Frizz!

Everyone is trying to fix their frizzy hair in the monsoons and here is an ideal product which will help you do that easily. We recently tried the Streax Pro Vita Gloss Hair Serum and were mighty impressed with it.

A coin sized application of the product helps ease out the frizz post a hair wash. Apply the product when your hair is wet and detangle it with a wide toothed comb. If your hair is extremely frizzy, apply it from the root to downwards, if not that frizzy then you can simply apply it at the ends of your hair and simply wipe off the extra serum on the rest of your hair. You can let your hair air dry or blow dry post this.

The ingredients of the product include Cylclomethicone, Dimethiconol, Light Liquid Paraffin, Octyl Methoxy Cinnamate, Iso Propyl Myristate, Perfume, Vitamin E and Almond Oil.  The almond oil keeps the fragrance subtle and pleasant.

Reasonably priced, effective and long lasting make this product a smart buy!

Here are two looks I tried to create with this serum. I usually have frizzy wavy hair, so I tried to curl them and let them down straight without ironing them.

Note: I haven’t used any other product except the Streax Pro Hair Serum after the wash and air dried my hair.

Tip: Avoid towel drying your hair before you apply serum. Rub a few drops of the serum between your palms well, and then evenly distribute onto your hair for best results.
