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.

Review: Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Lipstick – Read My Lips

The Faces Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Lipstick collection has a range of shades and today we are reviewing the shade – Read My Lips 07.

Read My Lips is a Hot Pink shade that can add that spark of glamour to any dull outfit. What we loved about this shade is the smooth texture, perfect for the chapped lips as the lipstick glides smoothly without being too sticky or too dry. Just a single swipe and you are good to go. The colour is a warmer tone of pink and stays for 5-7 hours easily.  The packaging is like a pen, long thin tube which also makes it easy to apply. This one is definitely marching upwards to our top contenders list!

Product Review: 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.

 

Product Review: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50

The best investment you can make, is in a good sunblock. And our favourite is this Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50.

The sunscreen provides broad spectrum protection from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. The best part about it is that light weight and a non shiny finish, so it doesn’t make your skin appear oily once you apply it. A small pea size amount is enough for your entire face.

It is water proof, sweat proof and has an extremely light fragrance which is great! One of the other positives is that it doesn’t leave a white cast on your skin after application which most other sunscreens do.

The packaging of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ is quite sturdy and sleek. A white and blue tube with a semi-transparent screw cap. The nozzle is ideal for removing adequate amount of the cream for every use.

Overall, we would definitely recommend this product for avoiding skin burns and skin tanning.

Tip: Apply sunscreen generously before going outdoors. It takes approximately 15 – 30 minutes for your skin to absorb the sunscreen and protect you. If you wait until you are in the sun to apply sunscreen, your skin is unprotected and can burn. Use sunscreen on an everyday basis for keeping your skin healthy and sun-proof!
