Makup Revolution Pro Fixing Spray - Amazing Makeup fixing Spray REVIEW

Hello everybody, 
I've always wanted to try a makeup setting spray, so a while ago I purchased this setting spray from Makeup Revolution since it was on a very nice discount.

The ultimate product In Makeup Revolution's Professional range. Used by professionals and for everyday use to keep your makeup in place all day long. Our formula will protect your makeup against heat & humidity, cold, and windy conditions, and however your skin reacts this will help your make stay perfect for up to 8 hours.


PRICE: Rs.1000 for 100ml (I got it for Rs.650 so do check online for good deals)

INGREDIENTS: Aqua, Alcohol Denat., Propylene Glycol, Benzyl Alcohol, Amp-Acrylates/Allyl Methacrylate Copolymer, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Dehydroacetic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Sorbitol, Retinyl Palmitate, Linseed Acid, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Sodium Benzoate, BHT

DIRECTIONS TO USE: After applying makeup as usual.
Shake bottle. Hold your Professional Fixing Spray at arms length and spray the microfine mist until your makeup is fully covered with your eyes closed. Avoid any direct contact with the eyes.

PACKAGING: The setting spray comes in a white plastic spray bottle with gold and black details on it. The packaging is very travel friendly and 100ml is a very good quantity!




MY REVIEW ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

This setting spray works wonders! It makes my base game very strong. I use it after I'm done with my foundation/bb cream, setting powder and contour, then i gently spray it all over my face and dab it with my real techniques sponge to melt all the powder products and take away any traces of powdery-ness (lol is it even a word?). 

From what I can identify from the ingredients, it contains the goodness of aloe vera leaf juice, castor oil, sunflower seed oil, etc but it also contains alcohol which is kinda bad because it can make your skin a bit dry. 

This setting spray keeps my makeup intact for about 8-9 hours and is very good at keeping the oils at bay on my t-zone. The finish is semi-matte though.

The only thing I don't like is its strong alcohol smell and presence of alcohol in it. So do a patch test before spraying it directly onto your face. Other than that, this product is a complete YAY for me. 


PROS:
  • Keeps makeup intact for 8-9 hours
  • Keeps your makeup fresh
  • Controls oil
  • Travel friendly
  • Good quantity
CONS:
  • Contains Alcohol
  • Smell is very strong :(
RATINGS: 4/5

***BEST SETTING POWDER UNDER Rs.500*** Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact REVIEW + Dupe of??

Essence is my favorite drugstore brand. Unfortunately In India, we can only get access to a limited set of products from them. I've been trying this Matte fixing compact for about a month now and trust me, it does wonders!


INGRIDIENTS:
Talc, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Saphire Powder, Aqua (Water), Magnesium Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

PRICE: Rs. 349 for 8g


PACKAGING:
The packaging is quite simple but yet very sturdy. But it does lack a mirror. You can see the translucent setting powder since the lid is transparent.






COVERAGE AND CONSISTENCY:
The setting powder is in a compact form. It is very soft and buttery and instantly mattifies your skin. Since it is a translucent powder so it has no coverage but it can set your makeup in place very well.  It is very light in weight. All you need is a very small amount and you are done.

SWATCHES:




FINAL THOUGHTS:
This is the BEST SETTING POWDER under Rs.500! It sets your makeup, mattifies it and keeps your face shine free for at-least 4 hours after which you might require retouching. It absorbs all the oils instantly and I've used it to set my under-eyes in place and damn! it does reduces the creasing.

It is very blend-able and gives a silky finish.

But it might leave a white cast on darker skinned ladies.

The best part is that, it is the direct dupe for NYX HD Finishing powder! The ingredients are same as well.


PROS:
  • Long lasting
  • Instantly Mattifies your skin
  • Affordable
  • Super light weight
  • Translucent
  • Sturdy packaging
  • Good for setting under-eyes 
  • very Blendable
  • Dupe of Nyx HD Finishing Powder
CONS:
  • Might not suit darker skinned ladies
RATINGS: 4.5/5

Luke Mugwort Nose Strip (Review) ft. Skin18.com

(Part Of PR Kit)
Nose strips are something which are not easily available in my area. So when I received this from skin18, I was delighted. Let's check this out then!



PRICE: $1.20 (appox. Rs.77.36) but it's always on discount
You can Buy similar from the Indian market here

INGREDIENTS: Includes Vitamin E & Aloe Vera Extract to sooth skin, licorice root extract to relieve irritation and hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) to tighten pores after cleansing
HOW TO USE:


PACKAGING: It comes in a cute turquoise sachet which contains one strip/one treatment. Very Travel-friendly and contains the instructions on the back side of the sachet.








MY EXPERIENCE:
First of all I don't have prominent black and white heads to begin with, but I do tend to get quite oily on my t-zone. Since this strip claims not only to remove dirt, black heads, white heads but also claims to tighten pores, so I'd thought of giving it a shot.

I cleansed off my face and then semi-dried it. Then I applied the strip to my nose with the help of little bit of water for making it stick to my nose. It smells horrible! The smell is so strong but still I kept it on for 15 minutes. So then comes the fun part which is peeling off the strip, but damn! it hurts, haha! But the end results was worth it, it pulled quite a good amount of black and white heads which I not a bit wary of. 

It is good for normal-to-combination skin.


PROS:
  • Removes dirt
  • Removes black and white head
  • Tightens pores to some extend
  • Cleanses pores
  • Very Affordable
  • Travel friendly
CONS:
  • Very Strong Smell
  • Hurts a little while peeling
RATINGS: 3.5/5

My HG Foundation! Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation

Hello everybody!

During the Nykaa Mega Sale, I bought this foundation from Maybelline. I've heard a lot of people raving 'bout this particular baby. So I totally had to dig into this foundation and after trying it for a while, here I'm writing down and sharing my experience with this.

P.S My Nykaa experience was Horrible! Their customer service is a total 'NO'!



Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation


INGRIDIENTS: Aqua / Water / Eau, Cyclohexasiloxane, Nylon-12, Isododecane, Alcohol Denat., Cyclopentasiloxane, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Cetyl PEG / PPG-10 / 1 Dimethicone, PEG-20, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Phenoxyethanol, Magnesium Sulfate, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, HDI / Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Titanium Dioxide, Methylparaben, Acrylates Copolymer, Tocopherol, Butylparaben, Aluminum Hydroxide, Alumina, Silica, Glycerin. May Contain: CI 77891 / Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 / Iron Oxides.

PRICE: Rs 550 (YOU CAN BUY IT HERE)

PACKAGING: It comes in a glass bottle and a basic screw cap packaging. Though it looks chic and classy but I'm not a fan of this packaging. It is not travel friendly :( I wish it had a pump.








CONSISTENCY: It's consistency is a little bit thick but not heavy at all. It feels as though i'm not wearing any makeup. It is very bendable and liquid-y

SHADE & COVERAGE: It is available in 6 shades. I'm in the shade 230 Natural Buff which has warm undertones and matches me perfectly. 


Coverage is medium, but it can be build-able. It doesn't not look cakey at all, it gives that 'my skin but better' kind of look :p



MY EXPERIENCE:



This is by far the best foundation I've used from Maybelline. I love the dream satin one as well, but I love this one more. The coverage is amazing. If you want greater coverage, then you should go for a flat-top kabuki brush; but for a natural look, go for any beauty sponge like the real technique's or the beauty blender.

It gives a smooth finish, not 'totally matte' but a semi-matte finish. I don't have very prominent dark circles so whenever I apply this, I really don't need a concealer, it covers up blemishes and evens out the skin tone and dries very fast.

Now coming to the staying power, I'd say it works pretty well. It stays for up-to 6-7 hours without a primer. But it can crease under the eyes, so do set it with a powder. It controls oil up-to a very good extend. It kept my face quite oil free for up-to 6.5 hours and with a little bit of touch ups after that, my skin was totally fresh like it was earlier.

With a primer, its blend-ability and staying power increases. It's very good for its price point and you can definitely achieve a full coverage look by layering it up twice:)


SWATCH:
My hand is quite tanned at the moment. Shade might look  different
PROS:
  • Good coverage
  • Affordable
  • Very Blend-able
  • Does not look cakey
  • Semi-matte finish
  • Covers blemishes & evens out skin tone
  • Stays up-to 6-7 hours
  • Dries very fast
CONS:
  • Wish it had a pump :(
RATINGS: 4.5/5

LUKE Snail Essence Mask REVIEW Ft. Skin18.com

(Part Of PR Kit)

Hello everybody, these days my skin is not at it's best so I kinda went ahead with this sheet mask from skin18.com which was sent to me. I wanted to know whether it will really work on my 'current dry skin', and would work its wonders like the previous ones.



INGRIDIENTS:

PRICE: $2.60 $1.60 for 1 treatment of 21g

You can buy it HERE

PACKAGING: The sheet mask comes in a foil packaging. It is very travel friendly and easy to apply. All details are written on the back side of the foil packaging but its written in Korean language. But there's a pictorial which can be easily understood.


The sheet mask is very good in quality which allows the essence to absorb onto the skin.


MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS SHEET MASK:

Since my skin was in a dry and dull phase, so I wanted to stry and see if this mask will be true to its claim. This mask claims to deeply hydrate the skin, bring back its elasticity, heighten the skin moisture holding capacity, refresh, soothes and firms tired skin. Snail extract contains Elastin, proteins and glycolic acid. It helps to repair any damage done to the skin due to UV rays.

First of all I've cleansed my face and then applied this sheet mask, left it for 20 mins, then removed it and patted the extra essence into my skin. I am quite impressed with this mask. My first experience is WOW! I could really see the changes. First of all, I felt my skin to be quite moisturized and there was a 'from within' type of glow. It did tightened my pores and totally transformed my dull skin to a brightened and firm skin.

It was true to its claims, however its effects are not long lasting.

PROS:
  • Hydrates the skin
  • Maintains Elasticity of Skin
  • Refreshes, soothes & firms tired skin
  • Tightens pores
  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Easy to use
CONS:
  • Effects are not long lasting
RATINGS: 5/5
