Have you tried any of the Viva Glams?
Coming back to beauty, I’m in love with this Body Shop Blueberry body butter. No, it’s not available in India yet and I got it from Singapore but this thing smells divine! I’m usually not a fan of fruity smells but this one is not 100% fruity. It’s like a milky blueberry kind of a smell and I love it. It’s specially for dry skin and made using cold-pressed blueberry seed oil sourced from America. True to its description, the Blueberry Body Butter:
- has a buttery texture
- hydrates very well
- leaves skin soft and smooth
- absorbs fast and does not leave a greasy film on top of the skin
I’m on my second Colossal Kajal new 12 hr formula and it is better than the earlier version. I don’t find any difference in pigmentation but this one is creamier and softer and definitely lasts longer. I’ve not worn this for 12 hrs so dunno if it will last that long but I’ve worn it for 9 and it’s performance was impressive. There was slight smudging on the waterline specially towards the inner corners but on the upper lids, Colossal was intact after 9 hrs. I don’t have oily lids so liners and pencils usually last longer on me but if you have oily lids, this might start to smudge earlier. My only problem with the kajal is that it gets over very fast and I hope we get more quantity. My first one did not even last a month and it’s not as if I was using a lot of it everyday.

The texture of the lip cream is very light and smooth and it applies evenly. It feels weightless and the color payoff is super. One swipe is basically all you need for luscious lips. The cream dries out to a matte finish pretty fast and then it practically does not budge for 3-4 hrs without flaking, caking or smudging (without eating or drinking). Else, it stays for about 5 hrs and then fades away leaving a pretty pink stain. The first time I used this on un- prepped lips and it felt really dry. The next time, I used a lip balm, blotted it and then applied Fandango Purple and it was fine. You do need a balm with this unless you want your pout to look dry and parched.

Here’s how it looks on me.
If you are looking for a matte lip color, Sleek Makeup’s Matte Me Lip cream is by far one of the best mattes to try. Awesome pigmentation, beautiful bright color and really long lasting. You can buy them from Sleek’s website for $6.99 exclusive of $2 shipping cost. I read somewhere that this range is Limited Edition so you might want to hurry up. Now I just pray Rioja Red reaches me soon!
