COLOURPOP HAUL




Hi girls hope you all are doing great ☺
Today i will be reviewing "COLOUR POP"  for you all.

If you are a Makeup Lover like me you must have definitely heard of this famous US brand from Youtubers/ bloggers.

If you haven't you can read about it here and if you have get excited as i will be swatching and reviewing the "COLOURPOP" products from my haul.

If you are wondering from where did i buy these products as ColourPop is a US brand and they don't have free Shipping to India until your bill is 50$ and even then you might have to pay customs!

So as i had heard a lot about this brand i wanted to give it a TRY..so i came across an Insta page called BeautyTales.in  and i saw that they stock Colour Pop cosmetics ☺ I checked that they even have a website so i immediately went on it and started looking for the products they had in Stock and placed my order.

                                                        
Before placing an order you have to signup on their site like any shopping site and they even have COD but for that they charge Rs120 extra so i paid online only and they also have a shipping of Rs60 if your order is less than Rs 2500 so i had to pay that since i ordered only 3 items!

So let me take you through my haul-


Along with my order came this "THANK YOU" Card which i found very nice ☺
I ordered two LIPPIE STIX LBB and Lumiere and a BROW PENCIL Banging brunette

1. LBB LIPPIE STIX


It comes in a white cardboard box and in a white rotating type crayon where the colour of crayon of the lippie stix corresponds to the top part of the lippie stix and the name of the brand Colourpop is imprinted on the crayon in a holographic logo which i find so cute and the lippie stix is rectractable so you can roll it up or down which i find so convinient and travel friendly.




LBB is such a beautiful berry shade perfect for the winter season and it would compliment any skin tone perfectly.


I was in love with this color as soon as i saw it and will definitely my go to for a lot this winter season!
Colourpop has different finishes in these crayons but since i love the matte finish i got both in matte finish..

I got it for Rs 610 for one lippie stix which is fairly reasonable for such great pigmentation and long lasting lipstick.

2. LUMIERE LIPPIE STIX

I can't even begin to explain about this gorgeous product..
why is that you ask? because it is a Collaboration with one of my most favourite "YOUTUBER" "KATHLEEN LIGHTS" ❤
who is that?
If you haven't seen her videos and you are a makeup lover then what are you doing?
You should definitely an Amazing US Youtuber and makeup guru! I love her to bits❤☺

Ok enough of expressing my adoration for her, i knew i had to pick her collab after seeing her introduce it ages ago.
So yes i got that!



Its such a beautiful peachy nude.Its like the perfect NUDE LIPSTICK. It is your everyday wear lipstick and yes if you dont even like dark lipsticks this one is definitely for you.

The formula of these lippie stix is so moisturing .It is not non-transferproof but yet very long lasting .


I give them a total thumbs up and definitely planning to purchase more shades in these. I give them a 4.5/5 ★★★★✬☆

3. BROW Pencil Banging Brunette


Girls i am sure you all love to fill in your brows when you head out, for all of us who love a beautifully defined brow would absolutely love this product.
I had heard about this brow pencil from so many youtubers and i knew i had to get my hands on them.

They have various shades but according to indian skin tones or  if you have black/dark brow hair, this shade is perfect.


It is a retractable pencil which the product on one end and a spoolie on the other which i loved as its perfect for on the go and you don't need a seperate brush for it.

It is such a perfect browny taupe color perfect to fill in the sparse areas. Beauty Tales sells this for Rs 610 again which is very affordable considering the quality :)

I loved it and it is definitely a loved product, the pro is that it doesnot smudge but the only con is that you can't roll the product back in the pencil so you have to be carefull of what you take out!

I would rate it 4star ★★★★☆ only because it has one con otherwise this product quality wise is amazing ☺

So here are the swatches of all products-

NYX HAUL (PART-II)


Hi ladies how are you all doing :)
Its been a while i posted have been busy but since the Festive Season is here i will post much often for you all,specially in this coming week so i can help you shop and style for the BIG INDIAN FESTIVAL of DIWALI :)
So i last posted a NYX Haul PART-I and i had to do a PART 2 so here it is.. Its all about the LIP products and a glitter primer.
If you haven't checked out my PART 1 you can check it here-




                   So lets begin the Part2

                       

NYX is available on NYKAA, Amazon and few stores have opened in Mumbai in Bandra, vashi etc and one store in Noida (logix city center mall)
Just waiting for a Delhi Store too! :)

1. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream


NYX Soft matte lip creams are the game changers in the makeup world,its a cult favourite product with every blogger or makeup lover since years and glad it is finally in India now.

I had picked up a soft matte lip cream in Antwerp from sephora years ago but they didn't have most of the shades that time but now that NYX is officially launched in India most of their hot selling shades are now available on Nykaa and Amazon.

I picked this beautiful berry shade called "
PRAGUE".


This soft matte lip cream Retails for Rs 600 for 8ml of product and its a creamy mouse like consistency not liquidy so it has full pigment. It lasts for about 7-8 hours but it can transfer if you eat something greasy for which u'll have to touch up. The best thing about it is matte and long lasting without drying your lips.
This formula is a cult of NYX and has won many awards in previous years and its a must have for every makeup or lipstick lover.
I would give it 4.5/5 and a Must Buy! :)

2. NYX LIP LINERS

These are also called the NYX slim lip pencils and it retails for Rs 450 for 1gms. Its a sharpable pencil with a point tip which gives precise lines while outlining.It is creamy so it does not tug on your lips and you can even fill your lips with this and wear it underneath your lipsticks for more pigmentation and it prevents your lipstick from feathering :)

I got them in two shades but i just love their shade variety and will be purchasing more from these.
These are referred to be the DUPE of MAC lipliners which is a big thing!

I got it in Mauve .Its a pretty pinky warm nude shade which is perfect to wear under any lipstick.

and Plum which is a perfect plummy red , perfect for dark red lipsticks, perfect fall shade :)


I would give these 5/5 Definitely a must have, very affordable and long lasting.

3. NYX MATTE LIPSTICKS

When one thinks of matte you think of drying but these lipsticks are not at all drying they are so creamy,glide on easily but yes they are not 100% matte, they are semi-matte which is perfect for winters as not always you want dead matte lips.
They are long lasting but they do transfer if you eat something but yes the pigment doesn't fully come off your lips, there is a very slight transfer.

The stay power is for 5-6 hours which is a normal in any semi-matte lipstick but the colours are to Die for, some of them are exact dupes of mac lipsticks or lipsticks of other highend brands.

I got Whipped Caviar and Siren. These retailed for Rs 625 each for 4.5 gms of product.

a) Whipped Caviar


Its such a gorgeous pinky browny nude.Its like a perfect my lips but better shade.Its a Dupe of MAC BRAVE and MAC  MEHR
Its a perfect KYLIE JENNER lip shade :)
This color is always out of stock so try to buy while its in stock :)
 
I give it 4.5/5 .Point 5 only deducted as it transfers a bit but its not a liquid lipstick so i give it that :)

b) Siren

 
Its a gorgeous berry shade which is a perfect winter shade.Its not for the faint hearted , only ladies who would like to sport a bold lip, its perfect for them.
This winters i wanted to play with my lip colors so i got this and i will be wearing it very soon.It resembles MAC Rebel.


 



4) NYX Liquid Suede 



This is the Star of the show. NYX liquid lipsticks.
They retail for Rs 850 for 4 ml of product.
They are not very liquidy but like a silky smooth lip cream which glides on smoothly and gives 100% pigment in one swipe.

It lasts longer than NYX soft matte lip cream and does not transfer at all..it sets matte but does not dry your lips..NYX even claims it to be waterproof.

I got this gorgeous Red color called "kitten heels"
which is a true red with orangy undertones..Its the perfect red for the coming festivities and even for parties :)





Will definitely be trying more shades in these..they have some very experimental colors if you like to go out their like bright orange and grey!
I give it 4.5/5
I am yet to test it with oily food or water so if it is water resistant,i'll update u on my social media.
Definitely pick up shades from this range of nyx its a must have!

5) NYX Glitter primer
I will be doing a reviewing the Glitter primer in a different post as i will be showing you an eyelook and show you how well glitter sticks to it.
So stay tuned for that :)

In all i am so happy NYX launched in  India but they should launch all the shades which are available in the US as some shades are missing specially in the matte lipstick range like Aria,tea rose etc

I hope you enjoyed this post. Comment below telling me if you own any NYX lippies and planning to buy any after reading this :)

NYX IN INDIA (Part I)



Hi lovelies :)
As you read in the Title of this post I will be taking you through my NYX Haul which i did when NYX launched in Officially on 8th july on Nykaa and now its launched 2 stores in Mumbai and its even available on Amazon :)
But i am waiting that it spreads its branches in Delhi & all across India so that we can test some of the awesomeness before buying it too :)

But none the less i had to splurge on it as i love trying new Makeup to review for you all and i had already experienced the amazing NYX soft matte lip cream in Antwerp and a NYX lipstick which i got from Delhi Sephora ages ago :)

I had always heard American Bloggers rave about the brand and i was quite eager to try the face products too.

The NYX cosmetics launched in India is comparitively expensive than USA prices as its being imported from there!

So i'll share my haul in two parts:

PART 1

PART2




So lets begin with the PART 1






I did this haul on 9th July as soon as NYX launched but it came in after 20 days as may be it was the 1st lot of the NYX order by Nykaa so it took them time to import these products!

I wanted to try their contour palettes also but i found it a bit pricey than their original price so i tried the other new products.

1. NYX Tinted Brow Mascara  

                  

It comes in this black box packaging and its like a mascara for your brows with a brown tint. I got mine in the Shade - BRUNETTE

It Retails for Rs 600 for 6.2 gms of product.


It has a mini mascara wand so that you can comb through your brows adding a subtle brown tint to make your brown appear fuller.




            


The pic above shows the wand and the color in flash so it doesn't appear stark in flash photography..looks very natural.
Also it does not make your eyebrow hard and
the best thing about it is it is smudge proof.. it wont budge from your eyebrows.Its wand is however a little bigger but otherwise Its the best Dupe of BENEFIT's Give me brow :)



Nykaa mentions that this product sets, tames and tints brows for a natural wear.

It gives a very natural look to your brows.




If however you don't have very full eyebrows like mine, u need to use a slight eyebrow pencil to just line your eyebrows like the Maybelline fashion brow, NYX micro brow , the colorbar brow pencil and then go over with this eyebrow mascara to make them look perfect :)

I would give it 3.5 stars!

2. NYX Long Lasting Makeup Finishing Spray (Matte Finish)


This is a blessing in disguise for the Combination/oily skin beauties.
This is a makeup setting spray which sets matte and helps to control oil and touch ups. It Retails for Rs 875 for 60 ml which is a fairly decent price as compared to other makeup setting sprays.
I have my MAC Finishing Spray, which costs a good amount so this is a good alternative whnever i run out of that :)
Since i am combination skin i use this more on my T-zone or even if i spray it overall it does not dry my cheeks which is a good thing plus it sets the makeup in place for long :)


The mist that comes out is very fine,not thick so it easily gets absorbed by the skin and makes your makeup look seamless.



It is not sticky at all or drying which is a thumbs up and gives a very smooth natural finish.
I would Rate it 4 Stars :)

3. NYX HD Concealer








I wanted to try a new concealer specially to brighten under eye as i already have my holygrail Maybelline Fit me concealer
 which conceals perfectly because of it yellow based undertones which i had reviewed for you earlier here
Maybelline Fit me

so i thought to try the NYX HD concealer as i had heard its a dupe for Makeup forever HD concealer.

It retails for Rs 525 for 3gm which is very affordable for a good quality concealer.

It comes in 5 shades
  • Porcelain
  • Fair
  • Light
  • Medium
  • Lavender
I got mine in the Shade Light as it seemed a good brightening shade porcelain is for extra white skin.
Fair seemed for very fair skin tonned
Light seemed to be a good shade for my skin tone i.e fair skin
(Medium and lavender shades were introduced later on the website)


This shade looks paler in pic than in reality but I still feel that this concealer is more pinky toned so next time if i have to pick i would go for medium.

But i love how this concealer blends into my skin.It does not look patchy what so ever and does look like white stark patches under the eyes so i really loved its blendability.

However it is not meant for dark skin toned girls because of its shade selection.


This shade would suit fair/medium skin tone as a undereye highlighting concealer or under the brow or as excellent eye primer but not to conceal spots!
For dark medium/tan skintones go for shade medium as a under eye highlight concealer :)

I give it 4 stars.. i deduct one star only beacause it lacks more shades for darker skintoned girls but fair/medium skin toned girls will love it.



4. NYX Intense Butter GLOSS



If you have not heard about the NYX Butter glosses then you are living in the no-makeup world which is perfectly okay but if you are a makeup lover like me, you must have heard of these from some youtuber/blogger or a friend, because these were a revolution to the Gloss world!

I am more of a matte lip girl but given they are at a Drugstore price with a non sticky finish is a super thumbs up so i had to give this formula a go!

Don't confuse the Intense Butter Glosses with their Normal Butter glosses.
The Butter glosses are more Sheer but the INTENSE Butter Glosses are the full pigment glosses. It has an amazing fragrance of a vanilla cupcake. Whats not to love! <3

It retails for Rs 575 for 8ml of product.
and the Butter Gloss retails for Rs 550.
Both come in 10 shades each. I have the shade Sorbet which is a beautiful peachy pink shade.
I got this as for day to day wear it is perfect when i don't wana wear lipstick and yet want to look put together!



If you are a college girl just beginning with makeup then go for the Butter glosses with just a hint of color.You can wearit as it is or even top it off over a favourite matte lip shade to make it wearable for whole day.

But if you like full pigment gloss and you don't like lipsticks for day wear to office or college or
if you don't prefer matte lipsticks go for these..


       

I would give it 4 stars.
But the only con is these are obviously not transferproof since it is a gloss, you have to touch up whenever it goes off but its one of the most lasting glosses!
 You should definitely have one in your collection even if you like gloss once a while :)


5. NYX Matte Lipstick

    Much before NYX came to India i had purchased this from the Sephora counter in Delhi as a part of the NYX makeup is available there.


I will be doing a full post on the review on NYX lipsticks and NYX lipliners which are available online but this NYX matte lipstick is not available on Nykaa & Amazon, you can find this1 in sephora.

I even like to top off my Intense butter gloss sorbet over this NYX lipstick in Hippie chic which is off a pale candy pink shade and it looks perfect together.
