MAC Powder Kiss Lipsticks : A Little Tamed, Fall In Love


The most addictive lipsticks in my books.
So weightless.
So easy-to-wear.
So tasty (sweet).

Moisture-matte lipsticks that deliver a blur of soft-focus colour, MAC says, 
and they're exactly that.



Fall In Love ~ Bright creamy fuschia. Yes, this is very similar to MAC Retro Matte All Fired Up

A Little Tamed ~ Mid-toned pink with yellow undertones.

Kiko Milano Creamy Colour Comfort Lip Liner 303 Tea Rose


When my previous laptop just died, one of the things I regretted not doing was not posting the photos & swatches I had uploaded to it. They were just GONE. There were a lot of makeup pictures, because I always click before using any new makeup product.
So now, I'm gonna post whatever I click, so they don't just sit there in my computer & just disappear one day.

Kiko Milano Creamy Colour Comfort Lip Liner 303 Tea Rose

About:

Long-lasting lip pencil in even, rich colours that precisely outline the lip contour.

The delicate texture glides on and blends easily. This transfer- resistant, waterproof pencil improves the lipstick's hold and never smudges.

Available in 16 colours.

 Dermatologically tested. Non-comedogenic.

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink ~ POET, DREAMER, PHILOSOPHER, ROMANTIC


They're beautiful, but they are my least favorite liquid lipsticks, till date.

I was drawn to the shade range, but the formula is not one I want in a liquid lipstick - or any lipstick, for that matter.

They are too sticky, and feel sticky forever! Literally, like 50% dry paint. I dread sticking my top & bottom lips together when I'm wearing these, so I end up pouting like a fish.

BUT, they do last forever too. They are truly waterproof & are the hardest to wipe off - even at the end of the day. You'll need more than a tissue.
(Kudos to the ladies who do video swatches of these!)

Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Swatches: Poet, Dreamer, Philosopher, Romantic


Poet & Dreamer are my favorites.

Philosopher makes me look like a corpse. 
(I got it when I was lilac-obsessed.)

Romantic is one of the most intense fuchsia pinks.

My Day at Madame Tussauds Launch Event


*
I feel I have to go to this one...I don't know why, but I have to make it to this one! Yes, why you never go to these events and such? You're not gonna fall down or embarrass yourself all.the.time.! Plus, this one doesn't sound pretentious & boring - they didn't use words like "French-something....and one-on-one interview with.....". They said: 1) Wine & 2)Mannequin Challenge, okay?
Oh God, what should I wear?! I have nothing to wear! My closet is a mess, I can't find anything! I don't even remember what clothes I have anymore!
Btw, where are those black suspender tights???
See, I told you weeks ago to put away the summer clothes in the corner junk cupboard, I (told) telled you!
Oh no, what if it's a formal dress code... like gown and head gear and all.... like "Madame" type?
Okay, please calm down! That new black ruffle bodysuit.... That. Make it work.... and just GO!
Eeee.... who's this Bollywood's biggest superstar they speak of?
Umm... Shah Rukh? Ranbir? Ranveer? Aditya Ro...nah, he's not that big (Yet. But you will be.... Jaanu.)....How I wish The Weeknd was a Bollywood superstar too right now *sigh*!
Ohh...I know, I know! Amitabh Bachchan! Yeah, definitely him.
*


Where: Shangri-La's Eros Hotel, New Delhi
When: 12th January, 2017

The Madame Tussaud's Museum will open at Regal Cinema building, Outer circle, Connaught Place, New Delhi.

At the launch, only 3 wax figures were unveiled.....

Amitabh Bachchan

Lady Gaga

LOTD: You Know......?


You know I can't remember the last time I wore blackish smoky eyes?


You know I've stopped wearing bold red & fuchsia lipsticks for a long time?


You know I want to binge read 'The Girl On The Train' before the movie comes out?


You know I get this  strong urge to lie back on the floor at a shopping mall, yoga flap my arms and legs in & out, and shout "THIS IS THE FEELS! I FEELS! I NO CRAZY!"?


You know the top I'm wearing costs less than all the products I'm wearing on my face?



Makeup Products  I Used (Pic below):

Firecracker Red M202 ~  Orangey red. Not as bright as MAC Lady Danger

Red Carpet M204 ~ No, it's not a dupe for MAC Ruby Woo. That was my first thought too =D

Makeup To Lean On


Do you recall, not long ago
We would walk on the sidewalk
Innocent, remember?
All we did was care for each other

But the night was warm
We were bold and young
All around the wind blows
We would only hold on to let go

Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need some(one) makeup to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is some(body) makeup to lean on.

*****

This blog post has been inspired by a song I'm obsessed with all week....

Lean On - by Major Lazer & DJ Snake.

Tell me you've heard it!

So are there certain makeup products you are almost emotionally attached to? Makeup you instinctively reach for, doesn't matter if you have other new (better even) makeup that are sitting right there. Makeup you can't imagine being without. Yes, you keep them all in one separate area/tray (they are the popular & envied kids on your vanity). Okay, it's time to say the dramatic words - Makeup You Lean On.

Here are mine & yes, they were also in my travel makeup bag.....


Face:
I use L'Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder in shade 320 Natural Beige when I want a matte finish. On days when I want a more dewy finish, I use Etude House Snow White Precious Mineral BB Cream in shade W13 (This version is from the Princess Happy Ending Collection)
For a heavier coverage I use both - BB Cream & then the foundation.

To conceal spots under eyes, I use the Revlon Colorstay Concealer in  shade 03 Light Medium

To set everything in place, I apply Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in shade Translucent. As a finishing touch, and to mattify my oily summer skin further, I pat Street Wear Color Rich Perfection Compact Powder in shade Neutral.

For cheeks, I apply the blush I'm very very attached to - MAC Cream Soda Satin Blush  from the Archie's Girls Collection, which was Limited Edition. I try not to use it all the time, but I can't...I can't stop! It's a pale peach color- swatches here.

Eyes:
For everyday, I do a quick neutral look and usually only contour my hooded crease, so 
Naked Basics Palette is my go-to palette. It has everything I need & the palette is compact and easy to tote around everywhere I go.
To tightline my upper lash line, I use Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal Just Black. If you have small light eyes like mine, a black kohl on the bottom lash line can look too harsh, especially for day time, so I turn to a brown kohl instead - enter Bourjois Kohl Contour in shade 78 Brun Design.

If I feel like lining my upper lash line, I use Maybelline Colossal Liquid Liner, with the 0.4mm precision tip - my absolute favorite! More pics here

Lastly, the one product I could possibly end up in a psych ward without - Mascara! I've been really overworking Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Mascara. Seriously, like, 4-5 coats of it every-time! Do not disturb me when I'm building my lashes! =D

Brows:
 
Currently using Rimmel Eye Brow Pencil in shade 002 Hazel Inglot Brow Shaping Pencil in shade #63, which is a waxy crayon stick that sets brows in place.

Lips:
Lancome Rouge In Love Lipstick in Rose Boudoir (Swatched here)
Revlon Matte Balm in Elusive mixed with MAC Vegas Volt. The resulting color is a pinky peachy beauty that's between a pink & coral.
If it's red I'm in the mood for, MAC Retro Matte Lipstick All Fired Up is my favorite these days, because it's not too bright.
Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick in Mauve It Over. Lined with Bourjois Levres Contour Lip Liner in shade #12 Facetieuse. My most-worn matte nude lippie!


I showed you mine, now show me yours....

*Name 3 makeup products you lean on.*



Now bring the beat back!



I have a feeling this is my lose-weight song.

*Puts earphones on....runs to dressing room.....and locks door*

New Hair Feat. Things I Love


I fell sick one week,
Baby CZii fell sick the next week,
I fell sick again that same week,
In the middle of last week....
 I made an impromptu trip to my hometown,
Slow Wi-fi. Doesn't even work at night!
Now I'm sitting in the living room while Baby CZii is sleeping upstairs,
Wi-fi comes and goes,
I'm hoping I'll be able to publish this post successfully.....
(Prove me wrong you Reliance dongle you!)
Before he wakes up & cries for milk  biscuits.

10 mins later:
Shucks! I can hear him already!
Oh, it's just my 1.5-year-old nephew.
Uh-oh, now he's next to me trying to grab my laptop!

Now if we were in a relationship, you wouldn't still think about breaking up with me because I did not keep in touch, would you? 
I've got issues, and it's not Apple Tree Yard*
............

Okay, about new hair: I got it cut & colored last month. I wanted side swept bangs,coz one day my forehead just looked so LARGE! Does it increase with age & childbirth?, I wondered. 
I asked for shoulder-length with lots of volume at the top, and I got, you could say, "The Rachel" (FRIENDS) haircut.

Color was achieved after a lot of stripping - meaning: bleaching & stripping away all of the orange in my hair. They used L'Oreal Majirel Lightest Ash Blonde.

These shoes! I got them from my hometown in January. Available in 2 colors. I got both. Not at the same time, I went for these another time - because, you know, I was losing sleep ;p. I wore them for the very first time last month, and was so pleasantly surprised that they're sooo comfortable for pencil heels.

I will post the other ones on my shoe blog www.cz-loves.com

Colorbar Matte Touch Lipstick Fairy tale Photos, Swatches


A pink lipstick named 'Fairy tale'
Isn't that lovely?!
You'd think I picked it because of the name, but no. 
 First, I liked the color - I'm always drawn to this type of pink.
I turned the bottom up, smiled like a weirdo, and said "I'll take this."

OKAY! Maybe the name sold me the lipstick.

(Let's hope Lakmé is reading! ;))

NEW Lakmé Enrich Satin Lipsticks Photos & Swatches


Look at them. Just look at them.
Don't they make you want to eat something pink-colored?
Mmm... Pink Macarons, Bubblegum, Cotton Candy - nah, something more chewy, Cupcake, Swiss Roll with pink & white layers, Lamington....
Ahh....Gimme! ;p

Say Hello to the NEW Lakmé Enrich Satin Lipsticks! Bright & bold 'very in' shades, new transparent packaging (you can now see the colors without having to uncap!), but the same 200-something price range. THANK YOU Lakmé!

I picked up 5 shades:


P169 ~ A blue-toned bubblegum pink.

P166 ~ Deeper than P169. It's such a gorgeous pink, and more flattering on me than P169. When you mix it with a purplish shade like P170 below.....

P165 ~ This one. This one is thebomb.com. It's the first shade I fell for while swatching at the store. It is very very similar to MAC Impassioned Lipstick. I'd even call it a dupe.

P164 ~ Tangerine shade. This has more silver shimmer, which makes it more of a pearly finish than opaque, like the other 2 shades above.

P170 ~ A lavender shade. Same finish like the tangerine shade P164. When mixed with P166, you'll get a shade very close to MAC Flat Out Fabulous Lipstick


LOVE the texture and finish. Same as the old versions. Silky and moisturizing, yet they don't bleed. These shades can be blotted to look matte, and they are pigmented enough to stain lips when they wear off. They smell the same as well - lipsticky scent, which is not too bothersome.

Ya, even I wish they had cute names instead of numbers! =\

Pink Glam Eyes & Lips Combination

You know that feeling when you finish watching the finale of a TV series? Like something died inside you? Ya, that's the feeling I'm feeling these days - after I finished watching The Missing. It's such a brilliant show with an ending that still haunts me days later. Do watch it if you're into mystery.

So....if you're wondering what makeup I wore on Valentine's Day, this is it. I didn't get time to click photos that day, so I recreated the look. Well.... just eyes & lips, because a full LOTD with presentable hair is almost impossible for me to do these days! Even on V-Day, I had to put my son on a chair opposite me while I did my hair! He stopped crying & watched  =D

I'm sure you already know this. Take back 6 empty (or just old & useless) containers to MAC and get 1 Lipstick from the permanent line absolutely FREE!

I picked Lady Danger & Relentlessly Red.

 Yay! High 5 to all the clever ladies who guessed correctly on Facebook & Instagram! =)

Penciled Pink Pout


One day, I wore a deep fuchsia pink dress.
I applied MAC Flat Out Fabulous Lipstick.
Very matchy-matchy!
I love when my lips match my dress or top.
Hubby & I left our hotel room. Yes, this was that time we were on our Babymoon.
We decided to eat lunch first before going shopping.
Chinese. Soupy noodles. Fried Rice. Chilli Chicken.
Waiting-for-the-check time was lipstick touch-up time.
I didn't need a mirror to tell me I had only a fuchsia pink outline on my lips.
I blotted and gently wiped off the edges. 
I reached into my handbag, and.....
AND.....
Oh My Gah! I'd forgotten to toss MAC Flat Out Fabulous into my handbag!
Not only that, there was absolutely no lip product in my bag.
Not even a lip balm (or a Fox's raspberry candy I could rub my lips with!) It's what usually happens when you change handbags!
I freaked a little.
"It's like an ensemble!", I told hubby who didn't see what the big deal was.
"And I thought you're not supposed to buy any lipsticks.", he added.
"I know, but....this is an exception!"
{Or.... I could leave my lips bare and a lil stained like this???.....
Please, woman! It looks like you have some kind of rash!}
We left the restaurant, went down the escalator.....
and we were standing in front of Colorbar.
I told the SA that I wanted a lippie shade that's exactly like the dress I was wearing.

Makeup When You Look DRAB

You know that "Pregnancy Glow" you keep hearing about? Well, not every knocked up woman gets to wear it like a halo. Most days, I feel like a lazy kangaroo with lacklustre waist-length hair. I'm too tired to prettify myself, and I've developed a habit of doing my makeup halfway too - BB cream, powder, a bit of brown eyeshadow on the crease....okay, that's it.
On this particular day, I made an effort to brighten myself (and mood) up. I'll jot down a few mini tips, and I hope my 'baby brain' will still translate my thoughts into words that make sense.

LOTD: PINK Everything Feat. NYX Addis Ababa

The title looks like some trance song, no?
 But it just about Pinkness today. It felt really good indulging in pink again - after I outgrew it a little bit for a while, because of mint green!

Speaking of pink, I have a story for you. A true story. I know this man.
Man fell down. Either he slipped or fell off a stepladder.
(I forgot how exactly after I heard the punchline.)
He was in agony, so he was rushed to a hospital.
The doctors/nurses confirmed that man had dislocated (or fractured) his hip.
So they had to take off his pants. Obviously.
To everyone's amusement, man was wearing pink floral panties.
His wife's!


Okay, let's not judge the poor guy. Maybe he just ran out of clean underwear.

Maybelline Lip Polish | LOTD

There are simple rules with some things I put in/on my mouth:
Cheese shouldn't smell too cheesy (or worse, like butter!)

 Egg shouldn't smell too eggy (I currently eat only Keggs. The others, I feel, smell like a farm....or feathers!)

Prawns shouldn't smell like seafood. 

Milk shouldn't smell like a cow (....and sometimes like a medicated cow!)

Lip Gloss shouldn't feel too glossy......

Maybelline Lip Polish: The shade I have is Glam 9, a rosy pink, that you know is my weakness when it comes to lippies. The color is very similar to YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick Pink In Paris. The texture is thick and creamy, which makes the gloss quite opaque. What's great about it is, it's as if it irons itself, because it looks more smooth and polished after it's sat on your lips for 5-10 mins.
Lasting Power: Man, is it super long-lasting! One February day, I'd worn it for hours, then I took a nap & when I woke up, it still looked the same!
Scented/Sticky? Unscented. It is non-sticky, and feels like a lip balm.
Packaging: Very cute! The tube is the same size as a lipstick, and the inner tube (or whatever) is shaped like a lipstick!
Features via Maybelline:
• Has pure, saturated color pigments that provide deep intense color
• Acts as a moisturizing liquid conditioning balm
• Gives a soft cushiony feel to the lips
• Features a built-in glossy top-coat that makes lips look fuller
• Comes with a specially designed leaf-shaped applicator for quick, precise application.
