Revlon Nail Enamel In "Posh" Review + NOTD

Hello Everyone,



Today I'm reviewing "Revlon nail Enamel in 571 Posh".  Its summer time so I really want to try something with shades of summer.  Its a classic Kelly green color which caught my eyes at first sight & looks super fab.  It glides smoothly without creating any bubbles, if you want a sheer coverage then apply one coat and you are good to go but if you want to make it more intense then apply two coats of it.

I'm a very huge fan of Revlon lip butters and nail paints and really this nail paint have a Rich creamy a lil bit sheer consistency which I love most, and unlike other nail paints it has a shallow scent, because many times my hubby has problem with that particular nail paint kinda smell.

Its a long lasting color which almost last for 1 week which is pretty good.  I got some compliment from my lovely hubby which really made my day. I would be doing some nail arts with this soon....



Application:
First apply a base coat to protect your nails here I'm using my boots base coat, then apply 2 coats of this beautiful nail paint 1 by one and let it set for at least 1 minutes. And finally finish with a top coat and you are done.

Swatches:


                                                                                   Revlon Nail paint in "Posh".    
Applied two coats of it.



Thumbs Up:
  • Long lasting
  • Fast drying
  • Comes with a good applicator brush
  • Easy to apply
  • Rich and creamy consistency
  • Build able
  • Shallow scent

Thumbs Down:
  • None -  :)


Quantity:

The Vise Palette Review+Swatches & Eye Look

Hello Everyone,

 Today I'm reviewing  "The Vise Palette" which I got on my birthday in February. When I saw this palette first on UD's website I was holding my breath to get it. And on my birthday I got this as a birthday present from my lovely hubby :). It was a part of my first haul post as well  so finally I got some time to review on it.




My Experience:
This palette comes with 20 eyeshadow, each color is awesome and it comes with a dual ended brush which is really good for packing color and for blending. I love all it's shades the pigmentation is super wow. This palette has eyeshadow like; satin, sheer,velvety, mate and metallic textures. It has 17 shimmery shadows and three of them are mate. They came with a great staying power & the buttery consistency of the shadows make them easy to work with. Its  a perfect palette to have in my makeup stash. I also love its sleek plastic packaging detailing with a jewelled "UD" logo on it. I can achieve so many looks from neutral to romantic, soft and dramatic, so its a complete package which I can carry with me everywhere, on holidays or also if I'm traveling.



   Ud Jewelled logo

Application:

Apply eye primer before putting shadows on it because with primers your makeup will last longer and more vibrant and it also protect your eye makeup from creasing. Some of the eyeshadow in this palette comes with chunky glitters & also may fall  out so for that put  primer or any cream base shadow to keep your eyeshadow in place and doesn't fall out.




Swatches:

  • Great range of colors
  • Colors are highly pigmented
  • Comes with a dual ended brush 
  •  Travel friendly
  • Great staying power
  • Blend able

Its velvet sheer texture makes me fall in love with it. I have done casual, formal and dramatic look with this. Its handy so whenever I go out I just keep this small palette with me.

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup Review....

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm reviewing " Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup. This new oil free foundation builds from light to medium coverage for a natural complexion you can believe in. It comes with 9 shades from fair to dark. I got this as a free sample on purchase of benefit porefessional.



My Experience:
It adds a  luminous and healthy glow to my skin and last up to 6 to 7 hours which is quite great and comes with a SPF 25 PA protection which is good for this killer sun as well. I have a combination skin  so before i apply this i go for moisturising my face first and then use & it hydrates my skin as well. It comes with a oil free formula which is great for those who have oily skin. It feels so light on my skin like I'm not wearing any foundation at all & looks natural on my skin.
I got this in  "I'm all the rage beige" color but its a lil bit dark for me, it gives me a tan look something which has yellow undertone so for that i use a light powder to set my foundation and I'm good to go.






Application:
Take one pump of the product on back of your hand and then apply with your foundation brush, stippling brush or you can apply this with your clean fingers as well. I prefer stippling brush because of airbrush finish.



Swatches:

                   Before blend on my hand                                                 After Blended out
Thumbs Up:
  • Gives light to medium coverage
  • Comes with a pump
  • Easy to blend
  • Build able 
  • Hydrating formula
  • Comes with SPF 25 PA

Thumbs Down:
  • The beige shade is a lil bit dark for me 
  • After some hours you got some shine around your face.

Quantity:

Texture:
Watery/runny


My Rating:
3.5/5

Price:
