Product of the Month : June - Nyx Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone

hey beauties....
Its bye bye June time !!! Monsoon is slowly entering my home town in India. The weather is changing from Too hot to kind of Cool. I am quite liking it. Anyways before we enter the showers of July lets see what June has given me.
Yes, so the product of the Month for June goes to "NYX EYESHADOW BASE in SKIN TONE"

 Well I own this product from quite a long time now. If you are a reader of my blog, you must be aware that I do a lot of makeup looks. Apart from that I also wear eye makeup in real life. From vibrant to neutral, I love experimenting with different looks. And when you use eyeshadows, a must have for you is a good base to hold and bring out the shades. You must be thinking, if she has been using the Nyx base from quite a long time, then why all of a sudden talking about it today. Well recently I had severe hormone changes which made a lot of physical change in me, including making my eye lids super duper oily. Yes, all my life I had a combination skin but a normal eyelid, but now my eye lids are oily. I used other eye bases like Elianto eye base but my eye makeup just creased like hell. I felt as if my eyeshadows just slipped off. But one thing that saved me was NYX EYESHADOW BASE. It just adhered my eye shadows all day without a slightest creasing.


  • Comes in three shades, White, Skin tone and Pearl. I own Skin Tone
  • It comes in a transparent pot with a white lid.
  • It can be a bit bulky but I dont mind.
  • It retails at all Nyx Counters. I got mine from Sephora, Kuala Lumpur. (I miss Sephora !!) for rm 20 something

  • An awesome base for my oily eyelids.
  • Holds the eyeshadow very well and stays on all day.
  • No creasing, no rubbing off of the shade till you remove it.
  • Texture is creamy 
  • Blends easily.
  • The skin tone shade evens out of eyelid.
  • Makes the eyeshadow more vibrant.
  • One pot lasts forever. So true to the price paid.
Its a perfect eye base for me which makes my eyeshadows pop, vibrant and last forever.

hey beauties...If you have read my previous post you must be knowing that I am in India now. As I am here I wanted to use some of Indian makeup brands. The first one that I reached for was Coloressence Cosmetics.See my review of their Lip Color here and here . See my review of their Blusher here . Today I went to the mall and grabbed a lipstick from a brand called LAKME. Its a Indian brand of makeup and skin care with a zillion of products.
I bought a lipstick from their Enrich Satin Range.


  • Lakme Enrich Satin lipsticks comes in a Dark Maroon Packaging. Its kind of bulky. But I really dont mind.
  • Its available for Rs 225 at all Lakme Outlets.

  • This shade is a pretty Redish Maroon shade. It looks lovely and suits almost all skin tone.
  • The texture is very smooth,creamy and the lipstick glides on easily on lips
  • Has a stay on power of 3-4hours, which is not that bad. After 4hours it leaves a stain though not that strongly pigmented.
  • Shade does not bleed
  • Love the finish as it doesnt settle on the fine lines on my lips.
  • Well Pigmented.
  • Affordable
  • Easily available in India
  • The only con for me was mine lipstick was broken :( yes i mean not the cover but the lip color was broken from the base. I am really upset coz I love this shade a lot.
I am quite impress with this range of lipsticks and looking forward to try some more shades as I am a sucker for lipsticks.

MUA Glamour Nights Palette : Swatches and First Impression

hey beauties....
Recently I was browsing through I was going through some MUA products which were discounted. And I really loved this eyeshadow palette. I have heard a lot of great reviews about MUA products and I immediately ordered the Glamour Nights Palette. 
Before going to my first impression about the palette, I want to say that I was really impressed by the website. Their delivery is like super fast. It took almost 24hours to reach my door step. The palette was securely packed in bubble wraps and cardboard box. I opted for cash-on-delivery option which was again a plus for me.
Ok now lets get to the palette. As the name says Glamour Nights Palette, the shades are gorgeous and apt for night time, though you can also use it for day time as well.
This 12 pan palette has a sturdy packaging with a transparent top. Each pan has quite a decent amount of product.


First Row
A Matte White This is very sheer as you can see in the photo 
A Shimmery Dark Purple This is very pigmented and gives a sheen
A Dark Forest green with a bit shimmer is very pigmented 
A Metallic Silver very pigmented with a sheen
A Matte grey Decently pigmented
A Chocolate brown with shimmer this too is very pigmented but it gives a bit of fallout 

Second Row
A very Dark Blackish Brown This is a matte shade
A golden shade with shimmer This is quite a pigmented shade and gives a lovely sheen. This is actually a Golden shade but I donno why it showed so light in photograph
A beautiful metallic green A lovely pop-up shade
A Matte Purple Can build up the intensity 
A Magenta with shimmer This is my fav shade. It is very pigmented and beautiful
A pale pink with shimmer can be a great highlight

  • Nice sleek travel friendly packaging.
  • This palette has great selection of colors and apt for night looks.
  • Good pigmentation
  • I got it without any shipping charges so its another plus for me :)

I am going to use this palette for many of my future looks for sure.So keep an eye on my blog :)
