Here is a list of my favorite current make up products and my till date opinion on them...
My make up routine is pretty simple, consisting of a moisturizer, foundation and compact powder, a dab of lip balm/lip stain and kohl liner to complete the look...Mascara only at times when I want to do a dramatic eye look...
I am currently loving the Bourjois Healthy mix foundation which the product claims gives a glowing finish for upto 16 hours and I have to agree..it stays intact till the time I remove my makeup at night and is perfectly blend-able, non-patchy, non-sticky and doesn't make my skin shine with oil by afternoon time! I would totally vote for this product as the best foundation I have ever used.
It also claims to have fruit therapy and hey, anything with fruits is gotta be good right?! I am using shade 55 - beige fonce.
For the compact, I am experimenting with Maybelline whitestay UV compact powder and I am liking it quite a lot! Especially since its value for money at 200 bucks.! It makes for a shine free radiant look and gets a thumbs up from my side!
Well, being an Indian, I am a big big fan of Kohl lined eyes and I am absolutely in love with the Bourjois Kohl and Contour eye pencil in the ultra black shade. It is smudge proof and stays on for a long time and the color is truly an ultra black; its pretty non-expensive but the only downside is that its not waterproof (which I realized after coming home)...so if you are looking at waterproof kohl liners you may want to opt for the Bourjois smoky eye pencils.
Well, my favorite lip sticks for the month are the L'Oreal caresse range of lip colors - I am not sure where they are available in India (I bought mine from the Dubai duty free) but these are too good to be true! I bought 3 colors, Rebel red (401), Mauve Cherie (102) and Rock n Mauve (203) and they are all super creamy and super slick and the color stays for a long time. I do have to re-apply after lunch but even then I love the super creamy texture and the way my lips stay moisturized for longer...A definite buy if you like your lip colors to be durable.
This is me after the end of the work day - I am wearing the Bourjois foundation and rebel red on my lips but a light dab so its not too rebel-y!
