Review : Milani Cosmetics Amore Matte Lip Creme Lipsticks

Hi Beauties!

Hope you are having a great day!

Today, I am going to share my thoughts on the Milani Cosmetics Amore Matte Lip Creme liquid lipsticks.There are around thirty three shades available on their website.I purchased two lipsticks.Shades Amore & Emotion.So let's get started!


About Milani:
Milani cosmetics is a cruelty-free makeup brand based out in Los Angeles,USA.
Milani Cosmetics and beauty products, includes face makeup, nail color and a full range of top quality makeup products, for women of any age, style or skintone.

                                           


Product Description:
It’s time to put your lipsticks on notice. The Amore Matte Lip Crème has arrived. This revolutionary, highly saturated liquid-to-matte formula dries to a soft, velvety finish for fuller-looking lips. Its double-sided, flexible plush applicator hugs the contours of lips, working to lock in bold, opaque color. Non-sticky, smooth and ready for all-night wear (up to 16 hours!) our Amore Matte Lip Crème is the ultimate transfer resistant kiss-me-matte.

Price : AED 45-50

Quantity : 0.21 OZ / 6g

Shelf-life : 12 months

Ingredients:
Isododecane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Kaolin, Flavor (Aroma), Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Synthetic Beeswax, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate. +/- May Contain: , Red 30 Lake (CI 73360), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Red 6 Lake (CI 15859), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Red 27 Lake (CI 45410), Red 28 (CI 45410), Iron Oxide (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

My Experience:

Shades:

  • 32, Emotion : It's a brown lipstick with a hue of red in it. Looks pretty and definitely not for the faint of heart.It's a vampy deep brownish-red that elevates the mood.If you enjoy wearing bold lipsticks, you might wanna check this shade out.

  • 22, Amore : It's a beautiful and vibrant red with a hint of pink. Looks like a reddish-pink shade and brightens up the complexion / overall makeup-look. I love this shade to bits.Perfect for party wear or any festive occasion.

Swatches:

Packaging:

The lipstick comes in a rectangular acrylic-tube packaging. It's a see-through tube,so we can easily see the lipstick-colour through the packaging.The important details like shelf-life ,product quantity etc are mentioned on the tube.The shade name and number are mentioned at the bottom of the tube-packaging.The twist open lid is plastic and of pure yellow gold colour. The flat-sponge tip applicator is very easy to work with.It actually helps in lining out the lips.Overall , the packaging looks very classy and attractive. The packaging is sturdy and can be carried easily while travelling...on the go i.e. travel-friendly packaging.

In Pic : Milani's Liquid Lipstick in the shade "Amore"



Formula & Texture:
  • The lipsticks in this collection have got a slight vanilla-like smell.Not strong.The smell goes away as the time passes and is definitely not bothersome
  • Creamy formula with powder-matte-finish
  • Non-sticky formula
  • Quickly dries up on the lips (around one minute)
  • Soft to touch and very pigmented!
  • One dip into the tube is sufficient to get full opaque coverage on lips.Girls having pigmented lips can rejoice! Wait wait wait...this is the case with the shade "Emotion".When we apply the shade "Amore" we can clearly see the lip-pigmentation peeping through the lipstick.Definitely need two coats of the lipstick in order to get full opacity.
  • Re-application  is very easy.No need to remove entire layer and then re-apply, just apply on top of the already existing lipstick.It doesn't make the lips look crusty or pathetic.The lipstick sits beautifully on the lips.
Effective/ Worth?
  • The product glides like a dream on the lips
  • Non-patchy application.Very easy to apply and distribute over the lips...evenly
  • The powder matte finish looks really very pretty and I love it
  • Comfortable to wear , but, a tad bit drying
  • Completely transfer-proof to a great extent.99%.Yay!
  • Smudge-proof and water-proof
  • Doesn't enhance lip-lines severely
  • Very lightweight formula,feels like nothing is there on the lips
  • The applicator is awesome.Easy to hold(grip) and apply the product
  • Both the shades stained the lips (whenever applied)
  • The shade range is amazing...I must say.
Longevity:
The lipsticks in this collection have an average staying power of about three to four hours(max).
Survived light snacks very well.These lipsticks don't really survive heavy meals.Post-meal,the lipstick goes away from the center of the mouth and you need to do a touch-up.
In case you don't eat oily or greasy food then the lipstick will stay on the lips for about 
5-6 hours(depends) and then fade away evenly leaving a slight stain behind.

Cons:
  • Enhances dry patches/flakes on the lips
  • Lips feel somewhat dry. Solution : Exfoliate your lips beforehand. Apply a lip-balm underneath. 
  • Gives butt-hole lips after having a meal.Oily food breaks down the product easily.

Will I re-purchase?
Yes,if ever I get through a full lipstick-tube. :D
I like the formula of these lipsticks.On a side note, both the lipsticks will surely suit all the skin tones across the globe.Take my word,but, only if you like to go that bold and bright.I personally love wearing all sorts(well, there are exceptions...of course!) of shades that tend to suit my apricot-skin tone.Just because of this reason I went ahead and picked up these two shades from the entire collection.I am happy with these lipsticks.  But, yes would like to let you all know that these lipsticks
make my lips feel a little dry (bearable).Layering after finishing off the meal is a necessity for sure. I would like to purchase a different shade from the Amore Matte Lip Creme collection called
"Gorgeous". :)

Rating : 3.5/5

Yes, definitely.
  • Affordably priced.For the price being paid we are getting a lot of product.Great quality I must say.

Con:
Enhances dry patches and fine lines a lot.Exfoliate your lips before applying this lipstick.I would highly suggest applying a lip balm prior to using this lipstick else your lips might feel very dry and flaky(approximately after two hours of application).

Yes

Overall, I would like to say that you should definitely give this lipstick a try.I am planning to check out other shades from the Matt Matt Matt lipstick collection.Very reasonably priced lipsticks.Must try!

Review : Essence Volume Stylist 18hr Curl & Hold Mascara

Hi Beauties,

To start with , firstly I would like to let you know that Essence cosmetics has got nice mascaras.My all time favorite is the Lash Prince Volume mascara.And that's why I thought of checking out the Volume Stylist 18hr Curl & Hold Mascara.mascara the moment I saw the packaging!Today, I am going to review the same for you all. :)

So, let's get started...shall we?

About Essence Cosmetics:
Essence Cosmetics is a Europian makeup brand and is very popular across the Globe.
The products are really affordable and are of high-quality.Essence products are cruelty free.
Essence has become one of my favourite drugstore brands.I love almost all the products from Essence.All the products are so affordable and of good quality.
                                 

Product Information:

The creamy black texture with micro styling waxes provides the lashes with long-lasting volume and incredible curl.Mascara for perfectly styled lashes with micro styling waxes for voluminous and curved lashes. Up to 18 hr hold.

Price: AED 13

Quantity: 12 ml / 0.40 fl oz

Shelf-life: 6 months

Ingredients:
AQUA (WATER), CERA ALBA (BEESWAX), PARAFFIN, GLYCERYL STEARATE, STYRENE/ACRYLATES/AMMONIUM METHACRYLATE COPOLYMER, ORYZA SATIVA (RICE) CERA, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, PALMITIC ACID, ACACIA SENEGAL GUM , POLYBUTENE, COPERNICIA CERIFERA (CARNAUBA) WAX, AMINOMETHYL PROPANOL, STEARIC ACID, PHENOXYETHANOL, VP/EICOSENE COPOLYMER, TOCOPHEROL, DIMETHICONE, POLYESTER-4, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, SODIUM LAURETH-12 SULFATE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, TETRASODIUM EDTA, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SODIUM DEHYDROACETATE, CI 77499 (IRON OXIDES)


My Experience:

Packaging:
As I mentioned earlier in the Introduction part, the packaging of the mascara attracted me a lot!
So,the nude pink coloured satin tube with a black twist open cap looks so gorgeous.
The details like quantity, shelf-life are mentioned on the packaging. The weight of the tube is very light.Travel-friendly packaging. The lid closes tightly enough to avoid product spillage.Love the girlie packaging.
                                         
In Pic : The applicator wand of the mascara.Cleanly separated fringes

Formula & Texture:
The formula is moussy, but, towards the drier version.It dries quickly.The texture is creamy.The product is very pigmented and dark black in colour. Lightweight formula....must say.

Effective?
Yes.
  • The fully loaded paddle brush works nicely on the lashes.It helps in coating the lashes  around inner-corner of the eyes.Easy to coat the lower lashes.
  • The mascara curls the lashes too. Holds the curl for a long time. But, then at the end of the day the effect was gone!
  • Very comfortable on eyes. Doesn't feel heavy on the lashes
  • Each time we dip the wand into the bottle,enough product comes out and helps in coating the lashes.
  • Very affordably priced and easily available.It's a steal.
  • Lengthens the lashes in one to two coats and gives the desired volume after three coats!
  • Separates the lashes nicely.
  • The effect of the mascara stayed around 7-8 hrs (in my case) until I went ahead and removed the product from the lashes.
  • Water-resistant mascara , but , not waterproof. Be aware if you are looking strictly for a water proof one.Skip this mascara.
  • Flaked ever so little and didn't give raccoon-eye-look.
Con:
  • Need to apply at least three coats of the product to get the desired volume.Of course,over coating the lashes with the product will result in clumpy-looking lashes which will not look good.Avoid over application. If you are in a hurry and want this mascara to work in a jiffy.It won't happen.It might lengthen the lashes and might not volumize them quickly. 
  • 18hr curl and hold is a big claim. This mascara doesn't stand up to the mark as expected! In case you are looking for a mascara that stays for a very long time on the curled-lashes this mascara might disappoint you.

Will I re-purchase?
Yes, definitely.This mascara is amazing and very affordable. Really good quality mascara...love it.

Overall, I would like to say that this is a nice mascara.I am loving it.It has not disappointed me.It lengthens the lashes beautifully plus volumizes too. Yay.All in all I recommend trying out this mascara.No complains as I have tried various high-end mascaras and faced disappointment! This mascara is quite affordable and works fine. Can be used on a daily basis as it doesn't dramatize the lashes a lot.

Rating : 4/5

Availability:

Review : Jergens Foot Cream

Hi Beauties!

Hope you are doing well!

Feet is the most ignored body part of all times.Ideally,on a day to day basis we should take care of our feet along with other body parts.No body likes dry,chapped and dirty-looking feet.So what do we do? Have we found out a solution? I was looking out for a good foot cream and came across this product from Jergens.
Today, I am gonna share with you my thoughts on the Jergens Foot Cream. Read on to find out if this product is great or not!

About Jergens:

Beautiful begins with skin.

Deep penetrating foot cream, with Shea Butter, Coconut Milk & Vitamin E, significantly improves the look and feel of even the driest feet.
Jergens foot cream helps you reveal deeply luminous skin.For external use only. Avoid eye contact.Store away from heat and humidity.

Price : AED 15

Quantity : 100 ml

Shelf-life : 12 months
                                  
Ingredients :
WATER (AQUA), GLYCERIN, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, PETROLATUM, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA) BUTTER, UREA, STEARIC ACID, CETEARETH-20, LACTAMIDE MEA, OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) FRUIT OIL, PARAFFIN, DIMETHICONE, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, ANANAS SATIVUS (PINEAPPLE) FRUIT JUICE, CITRUS MEDICA LIMONUM (LEMON) JUICE, CITRUS GRANDIS (GRAPEFRUIT) JUICE, BHT, CARAMEL, DISODIUM EDTA, COCOS NUCIFERA (COCONUT) FRUIT EXTRACT, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, ACRYLATES/C10-30 ALKYL ACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER, METHYLISOTHIAZOLINONE, PHENOXYETHANOL, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, PROPYLPARABEN, METHYLPARABEN, FRAGRANCE (PERFUME).
                                      
My Experience :

Packaging:
The product comes in a cream-coloured plastic tube.The tube has got a flip open cap.It's very tight and secures the product well.We need to squeeze the tube to take out the product.The nozzle is of appropriate size and enough product comes out at a time.All the details like ingredients,shelf-life,quantity etc are mentioned on the packaging.The tube is really compact and not heavy at all.Very sturdy and travel friendly packaging.Experienced no product-spillage in the handbag while travelling.Decent packaging.

Formula & Texture:
Formula : Ingredients like glycerin , shea butter , olive oil, pineapple juice, lemon juice, grapefruit juice , coconut fruit extract have been used. 
These ingredients are well-known to deal with skin-issues and make it feel more rejuvenated. 
  • Shea butter and coconut extract keeps the skin moisturized.
  • Vitamin E present in olive oil is an antioxidant that protects the skin against sun damage and other environmental stresses. 
  • In general,Lemon juice helps in killing the bacteria etc.
  • In general,Grapefruit is high in antioxidants which fight the free radicals that cause wrinkles, and dull complexion. The salicylic acid present in the grapefruit juice works magically on the elbows, knees and rough patches.                     
Texture: The off white coloured foot cream has a very creamy texture, The consistency is not that thin or runny, it's well balanced.Get's absorbed into the skin meticulously. Non sticky product.

Fragrance:
If you have smelled shea butter ever, you will recognize the fragrance of the foot cream.It's mild and smells kind of vanilla-like...it's pleasant , nothing bothersome.The fragrance goes away as the time passes.Very quickly.

Effective?
Yes.
  • The foot cream has a creamy texture which is amazing.Soft to touch.No granules or harsh particles are present.Plain cream.
  • Nice ingredients.The combo of the ingredients like glycerin , shea butter ,coconut extract etc is amazing. It works on the skin pretty well.
  • Very lightweight formula. Doesn't feel greasy at all.
  • It gets absorbed into the skin quite well
  • Very comfortable.After applying the cream on the feet, the skin feels better.
  • Regular usage of this product helped in reducing the skin-dryness
  • Also, flakiness of the skin was tackled well by this cream
  • As the time passed, skin felt moisturized, soft and supple.
  • Won't say that we will get fairy-like feet in just one day of usage.Keep using this product on a regular-basis to feel the effect.A month or so, it totally depends on the severity of the damaged skin.
  • For best results, wash your feet at night and apply the foot cream generously.Wear socks and sleep tight.Doing this will help in reducing the dryness and will heal the rough skin.
Con:
  • Not Paraben free.
  • Contains dimethicone and alcohol
  • A bit pricey for the quantity being offered.One tube lasted for a month.But,yes the product-quality is great!
Will I re-purchase?
Yes.

Overall,I would like to say that this foot cream is really nice.You should check out and try this product if you are suffering from dry & rough feet.Must try out once.Highly recommend.

Rating : 4/5

Availability:
In UAE, Carrefour stores and all well-known supermarkets.
