Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor – Review, Swatches, FOTD, Price in India!

Hi everyone, today I bring you the review of a product that I have been using a lot these days. I am talking about the latest makeup launch from Revlon, the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor. These were released last year in USA and other countries but were launched last month in India. I picked the shade Devotion and it is my go to lipstick these days. So let’s get started with the review!

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor Review

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor comes in a flattened clear plastic tube with silver metallic cap. All the details are printed on a sticker at the back of the tube. The shade is visible on the outside of the packaging. The packaging gets a 5/5 from me since it is cute and travel-friendly. The applicator is soft and cushion-y and it’s shape (curved body and pointy tip) helps apply the lipcolor properly to the lips. There are currently 6 shades of this Matte Lipcolor available in India.

It smells sweet but not in a very pleasing way, however, it tastes nice (of course we are not supposed to eat it so this point should not even be a part of the review but I still thought of mentioning it).

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor – Devotion

Matte lipsticks in liquid form have been quite the rage in the past few months but this baby from Revlon is not just a liquid lipstick. It is a Lipcolor that is a beautiful amalgamation of lipstick, gloss and balm. It has the pigmentation and opacity of a lipstick, light feel of a gloss and moisturizing effect of a lip balm!

All of the shades released in India are gorgeous but I picked this muted pink shade called Devotion. I felt like I would get more use out of a wearable pink like this considering my everyday makeup look! And I am, I am totally Devoted to it 😉

Onto the lasting power and stuff, this lipstick is so easy to apply, it gives a good wash of color in one swipe and a good opaque look on 2-3 swipes. It feels very light on the lips and sets to a semi-matte finish. It looks very flattering even on my dry lips. I think it even helps fill the lines of the lips making them look more cushion-y and beautiful! It transfers a lot but still manages to stay upto 4 hours on me. A slight stain stays put for the next 1 hours before it all fades away.

Reapplication is also a breeze since this one glides like butter on the lips. Despite being moisturizing, it does not feel slick on the lips. I enjoy wearing it everyday. This shade looks really good with all kinds of eye makeup! This is the best liquid lipstick in India at this point in my opinion.

I did not notice any drying of lips with this matte lipstick. When I forgot to scrub my lips before applying this lipstick, I saw some tiny particles of it clung to the dry patches. So I would recommend prepping the lips. It is actually always a good idea to do that when using any statement shades, liquid and/or matte lipsticks.

I adore my Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor. I would have given it 5/5 but I have deducted the small fraction because of the strong scent. If the scent is not a deal breaker for you, I can vouch for the fact that this will become your go to lipstick! It comes in gorgeous shades, has a beautiful effect and feels light on the lips. The price is a bit high comparing my trusted Maybelline lipsticks but I am still willing to splurge on this beauty. I highly recommend this liquid lipstick from Revlon. Go get it girls!

Maybelline the Magnum Barbie Mascara – Review!

Maybelline the Magnum Barbie Mascara – Review, FOTD, Price in India!

Hi everyone, how are you doing today? I have been under the weather for quite a few days but hey I gotta do makeup! Hehe. Since eye makeup is my favorite, I have been trying out the Maybelline Magnum Barbie Mascara for about a month now. While most people stick to one type of look (they prefer) – natural or dramatic – I am one of those who like to experiment. I might be in a mood for dramatic makeup or decide to go Au Naturel on any given day. So I was ecstatic to find this Maybelline mascara. Read the full review below to find out my experience with this product!

Maybelline the Magnum Barbie Mascara review

Maybelline the Magnum Barbie Mascara

Product: Maybelline the Magnum Barbie Mascara

Price: 399 INR | Buy Online

Claim: Give your lashes the million bucks effect with the fluffiest volume and longest length this season with the Magnum Barbie Mascara. It has two different lengths of fibers to create the most natural fluffy lashes with the most extreme length. The formula is waterproof and weightless and makes the lashes look thicker to create a Barbie Eyes look.

Maybelline the Magnum Barbie Mascara comes in a spectacular yellow and metallic pink print and cap. It is an eye-catching tube which somehow reminds me of Etude House products. The brush has curve shape like the Falsies mascara but the bristles are not very neat and there are way too many fibres in this mascara.

This mascara comes only in one shade – black – and is supposed to be a lengthening mascara with two sizes of fibres. It has a pretty thick formula so it can add some volume at the root.

Well all in all it looked like a promising mascara so when I applied it, I felt like it was creamy and thick. It did not feel very heavy on the lashes making them look weighed down but it wasn’t light either. The bristles did not distribute the mascara between the lashes evenly and I think the lengthening effect was lower than my expectations (and the company claims). It did add volume to the roots but more than 2-3 coats made my lashes stick together which did not look very appealing to me. But…

This mascara if kept at two coats, looks very natural to the eyes. It does not give Barbie lashes as claimed but it does help define the lashes and add some volume at the root making them look thicker. It is waterproof so it is perfect for summer and monsoon months. It can be removed using a good cream or oil-based remover with some effort (like all waterproof mascara.) If this had been marketed as an everyday mascara, I would have given it a better review. It works very different from the claims the brand has plastered all over it.

Okay, so it is a waterproof mascara that can be worn everyday and comes at an affordable price. It stays all day on my eyes but looks best till 6-7 hours. So once we have established this, let me give you cons of the product – it is flaky. It has some bits coming off the eyes and getting into the eyes or on the face all through its wear time. That’s it!

So overall, I believe Maybelline the Magnum Barbie Mascara is an affordable, jet black volumizing mascara that can be worn everyday. It is a bit flaky so people with sensitive eyes can safely skip it. It dries quickly so build it up fast and I would not recommend doing more than 2-3 coats of this mascara. It is waterproof so it stays put all day and can be removed with a good cream or oil based remover. The price point is definitely a plus so give it a go!

Lever Ayush Therapy Narayana Tailam – Review!

Lever Ayush Therapy Narayana Tailam – Review!

When it comes to popping pills, I like looking for alternatives so in times of pain, my first instinct is to look out for something for topical application. I have always been into alternative healing than western medicine so when I came across the Lever Ayush Therapy Narayana Tailam, I knew I had to try it. Ayurveda has given us a concoction of herbs in oil base that helps relieve pain and these usually come with names like Maha Narayan tail, Narayana tailam etc. So today I am going to review a pain relief oil that has been really helpful to reduce the pain I get from tendonitis and cervical spondylitis!

Lever Ayush Therapy Narayana Tailam price

Ayush Therapy Narayana Tailam

Product: Lever Ayush Therapy Narayana Tailam (pain relief massage oil)

Price: 599 INR

Quantity: 100 ml

Claim: Relieve your body from all pains and stress. The Level Ayush Narayana Tailam contains 32 ingredients, known for their pain-relief benefits. The oil made solely of Ayurvedic solutions using Pak Vidhi (method of processing medicated oils) that can cure muscle and joint aches in case of osteoarthritis. Regular Abhyanga with Narayan Tailam provides relief from all kinds of muscle and joint pains.

Review video:

Lever Ayush Therapy Narayana tailam comes in a clear plastic bottle with white twist-open lid. All of the details about this pain relief oil are printed on the stickers placed on both sides of the bottle as well as a tiny leaflet that comes in a cloth bag that houses the bottle. The oil is reddish brown in color and smells of herbs! The smell lingers so this is the kind of oil that would probably work better of applied when you are going to stay home. The consistency is like any other oil but it does not absorb readily on the skin. Staining is also an issue so make sure you are not wearing white or your favorite clothes when you apply this oil.

Lever Ayush Therapy Narayana Tailam review

Lever Ayush Therapy Narayana Tailam

Those are just the things you need to remember for any ayurvedic pain relief oil, it is not a cons of the product!

This pain relief oil comes in a packaging where it pours out drop by drop and hence wastage is reduced. It smells strong but feels good when massaged on the affected area. I love placing it in a container with slightly hot water to warm up the oil. This way it feels even more relaxing.

Since this contains many herbs, this joint and muscle pain relief oil helps mend the Vata imbalance in the body which is the culprit behind muscle and joint pains according to Ayurveda. Even though this oil helps bring relief in pain whenever it is used, it works best when used consistently over a period of time. This is not a quick-relief remedy!

Many pain relief oils are available in the market but the Lever Ayush Therapy Narayana Tailam is a top class product since it is created using the taila pak vidhi (method of processing medicated oils). It contains 32 herbs and these help bring relief in pain, create vata balance in the body and improve overall well being!

Overall, I am happy to have come across the Lever Ayush Therapy Narayana Oil. It is working well for me and bringing me a lot of relief in pains I get every few days because of Cervical Sponylitis and Tendonitis. I highly recommend it to people looking for Ayurvedic products for pain relief!

Fairfax Hair Energizer Review

Fairfax Hair Energizer Review, Price

Hi everyone, today I am going to review a hair product that claimed to be the answer to my hair problems. I have dry, frizzy hair and I saw an increase in hair fall in the past few months. My prayers were answered through Purplle in the form of the Fairfax Hair Energizer. It contains 14 herbs in a tiny bottle and claims to solve hair thinning and hair fall problems. I have used it for 3 weeks now so here is the detailed review for you!

How to use the Fairfax Hair Energizer?

Applying Fairfax is simple to apply. After shampoo, just add 4-5 drops in 2-3 liters of water and rinse), so you can stay regular with no strict regimen to follow. Shampoo at least 2 times a week and apply immediately after shampoo. In just 1 month of use, you should see a 30-40% reduction in hair fall.

Fairfax Hair Energizer

Fairfax Hair Energizer comes in a white cardboard cylindrical packaging with black print. The actual product in housed in a tiny 5 ml see-through glass bottle that has a silver metallic lid. The bottle has a plastic dispenser which pours the product drop wise. It is a practical and cute packaging. Of course for travel, it would be advisable to save the cardboard packaging.

The hair energizer is amber in color and has a faint herbal smell. Since only 5-6 drops need to be mixed with 2-3 liters of water, the smell and color are not even noticeable. It has a water-y consistency. If you take a couple of drops on the palms of your hands, it evaporates!

I have been using this product for 3 weeks now (7 hair washes till now) and from the 4th wash, I have seen a noticeable difference in hair fall. Even though this can be used instead of a conditioner, I still use my conditioner after shampoo since I have really dry and unmanageable hair. I think conditioner helps add some smoothness to my hair. I have tried using the Hair Energizer directly after shampoo (skipping conditioner) and there was not much of a difference in how my hair felt. So basically it can replace a conditioner too!

Fairfax Hair Energizer review

Fairfax Hair Energizer

There are 3 ways to use the Fairfax Hair Energizer:

  1. Mix 1-2 drops of Fairfax Hair Energizer with hair oil to apply to the scalp and hair
  2. Add 5-6 drops of Fairfax Hair Enerigzer to 2-3 litres of water and rinse the hair with it after shampoo
  3. Add 2-3 drops of Fairfax Hair Energizer to your hair mask

This product can be used even on colored hair! I am quite pleased with it even though the price point seems a bit high to me. It is an effective product but a more pocket-friendly price would be an added point to love this product!

FTC: PR sample. 100% honest opinions.

Overall, the Fairfax Hair Energizer is an effective product to deter hair fall. It also helps add some life to dull hair. But since it only comes in 5 ml bottles, I think it can get expensive in the long run since one bottle can give upto 25 uses. So I would highly recommend checking out Purplle for offers on this product.
