e.l.f. Essential Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick Review


Today I am reviewing e.l.f. Essential Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick(£3.00). When I saw them online I thought to grab all the shades but few were not available. There are total 7 beautiful shades available to try and I got 4 of them for me. The Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick is a tinted lip color that glides on like a lipstick but looks like a gloss. With nourishing Jojoba, Soybean and Vitamin E key ingredients, it conditions and moisturizes the lips.

The Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick comes in a white matte chubby pencil like packaging. It twists up/down so you do not have to use pencil sharpener. It has clear cap so you can easily find the shade you are after. The end of pencil is coloured in a similar shade as the gloss. It has sweet peppermint fragrance that fades away after application. It does not cause any tingling sensation on my lips. This lip gloss sticks glide smoothly on lips and gives shiny finish. All four are nicely pigmented and also buildable. Apply one layer to achieve a light wash of color, or apply more to get a richer, intense color payoff.

These lip glosses are so moisturising that no need to put anything on underneath. Just apply it and go, that’s it. I only got one cremy shade rest three have glitter flakes in them, that are noticeable when applied. They do not feel sticky on lips as they are not lip glosses which makes them even better. The color pay off is really good. They last average 4-5 hours on my lips even after drinking then have to re-apply.

Flirty & Girly is vivid fuchsia shade with heavy shimmers in it. It has frosty finish. I really like this bright colour with shimmers. It is showstopper shade for me. The shimmers are pretty prominent, and although they do feel textured on the lips, they do not feel uncomfortable on by any means. This is a great shade for a night out.

Pink Umbrella is a true pink with a cool undertone. This is one of my favorites! It gives a natural looking pop of soft pink to the lips. This shade goes with any look. It also has some silver glitters in it.

Tiki Torches is a coral shade with gold glitters in it. It is perfect warm shade for summer. This one I use as eyeshadow too, and it looks beautiful.

Movie Star is a berry red with cream finish. It is not loud colour. It gives sheer red lips.

Overall, they are very affordable Lip Gloss Sticks. The lasting power is good. You can pick few shades if you are looking for a moisturizing gloss that feels comfortable on the lips and packs a punch in the pigment department. If you like sheer colour then I would recommend e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balms as they hydrate the lips and give beautiful looking tinted lips.

You can buy e.l.f. Essential Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick from UK website here. If you are staying in India you can buy them from iherb.

e.l.f Studio Blush Palette in Light and Dark Review


I love blushes, I am blush obsessed, specially the blushes comes in palette. Today I am reviewing e.l.f Studio Blush Palette in Light and Dark(£7.50) which I got last year while shopping online in UK. I have also reviewed e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balms in my previous posts which you can find here. e.l.f. products are always fun to shop for. This raved about brand is always affordable and carries good quality products.

I really like the packaging of these palettes, pretty simple! The square shaped palettes are sleek black with a full size mirror inside which makes it very travel friendly. You can also take one of the blushes out of the palette. That way you can create your own palette with your favourite blushes and don’t have to carry too many palettes with you if you are going out on vacation.

Each palette has four shades, two of them have matte finish and other two have subtle shimmer. Each palette has a mix of warm and cool tones, so practically any undertone can find at least two shades to fit their style. The formula of these blushes is softer, super pigmented and easily blendable. You have to use a light hand while application as these blushes are very pigmented. I prefer stippling brush to apply.

The blush palette in Light contains cool pink, neutral tan, warm pink and warm coral. The coral shade contains some fine gold glitters. One shade has light shimmer which does not show up. This palette would be nice for those with medium to fair skin tones. If you have very deep skin tone then build intensity of the shade you like.

The blush palette in Dark contains a warm dusty mauve, deep neutral berry, warm rusty brick red and neutral brick red. The warm rusty brick red contains some gold glitters in it. One shade has light shimmer which does not show up. This palette would work for all skin tones. If you have fair skin then you will need to use a very light hand.

These blushes are not powdery or dusty at all which I really like about these both palettes. The lasting power of this blushes is amazing. I can usually get about 6-7 hours of wear from the shades in both palettes when I am wearing a full face of makeup. Both the palette are great for everyday use and easy to carry when you are travelling.

So what do you think about these e.l.f. blush palettes? Have you tried any of these palettes yet? Let me know your thoughts in comment section below. You can buy e.l.f. products from their website here if you are staying in UK. If you are staying in India you can buy e.l.f. products from iherb.

Benecos Natural Hand Cream Review


Today I am reviewing Benecos Natural Hand Cream. As you may know I have reviewed many Benecos products on my blog and I loved each and every of them. My love for organic products is growing day by day. I have added many organic products in my daily skincare routine and into makeup collection too. Benecos VEGAN Hand Cream is formulated with multiple natural moisturizers such as Sunflower Seed Oil, Vitamin E, and Calendula Extract to hydrate your skin, as it smooths dry skin, leaving it feeling silky soft. Best of all, the Benecos Hand Cream is formulated with an amazingly clean formula free from all chemicals. With allergen-free fragrance, so even those with the most sensitive of skin can pamper themselves with deep moisture.

I just love the packaging of this hand cream in bright orange color and the floral pattern on it looks so eye catching. It is wet and creamy in consistency and not runny at all. Very small amount of product is enough to cover hands evenly. The light formula of this cream absorbed quicky within few seconds by the skin and does not leave any sticky feeling behind. It moisturises and hydrates the skin very well. My hands feel velvety soft.

The cream wears off bit quicky so have to re-apply frequently. It also helped me to repair my broken cuticles and keeps my dry skin moisturised during this cold days. On packaging it says “Hand Cream for happy hands” and I totally agree on that. Overall, It is great natural hand cream to try, I am sure I will repurchase it again.

So what do you think about Benecos Natural Hand Cream? Have you tried it already? Do you have any recommendation for hand creams?

Thank you,

Benecos Natural Nail Polish Remover Review


Today I am reviewing Benecos Natural Nail Polish Remover(Rs. 887) which I have been sent very kindly to review on my blog. In past I have reviewed some Benecos Nail Polishes and did nail art with them which you can find on my blog under Nail Polish tab. Benecos is known for their Natural Beauty products. I love to try natural products and always look forward to find new natural skincare and cosmetics brands.

The packaging of this nail polish remover is really beautiful. Love the color combination of packaging, looks very fresh. It comes in 100ml of bottle. It does not have that harsh scent which I really like about this natural nail polish remover. It has that citrusy aroma which I really enjoy. It does not leave any smell after use. It contails some essential oils and it is purly vegan.

I use nail paints a lot, and so for me it is important to use a good quality nail paint remover otherwise my nails become brittle and yellow. After using few other nail polish remover my nails does peel sometimes but not with Benecos Natural Nail Polish Remover. The remover works well at removing the nail paints. The formula does the job really fast and is very gentle. You do not need to rub the cotton hard against the nails to get rid of the nail polish, just swipe it gently and the paint gets easily removed without leaving any color on the nails. Even after taking off a red polish, I do not see the staining I usually do after using other polish remover. This remover does not dry out my nails as it contains Glycerin which prevents the nails and cuticles from getting dry.

All in one it is great nail polish remover to try and if you are looking for natural nail related products then must try out. I am sure you would love it too! I have few more reviews coming on Benecos natural products so keep watching my blog.

Thank you,
