Maybelline Babylips Candy Wow is the last winter launch from Maybelline India. It is another spectacular product launch from the brand and Maybelline BabyLips Candy Wow Collection is totally breathtaking! The colors and the packing left me in awe and I simply can’t get enough of this already. They once again hit the spot and came up with the undying trend of chubby sticks or lip crayon style packaging which makes these so irresistible. Not that there aren’t many of these sorts in the market but somehow these totally stood out with the bright colors and the chubby stick style look. Besides, these look cuter than the others. Like seriously!

What I Love –
  • Hydrating Formula
  • Sheer Tints
  • Candy color packing
  • Enriched with Vit E
  • Moisturizes lips well and leaves a faint tint behind
It’s perfect time again to take out these to play with since it is almost winter. The formula is more hydrating and moisturizing than their usual Baby Lips balms and also the tint is pretty good too which makes these the perfect ones to have around during this time. That said, their packing still takes the front seat and beats everything out. Just for these cutesy looking ones I personally don’t mind buying them all.

Think of how cute the pictures would turn out with this somewhere in back ground of the pictures! Lol…
On a side note, this is definitely a keeper!
While Peach shade washed me out, my favorite at the moment is Mixed Berry.
Currently available in 4 shades – Raspberry, Mixed Berry, Peach, Orange (didn’t find the 5th one in any counters yet)
Price – 275 INR
Available – All Maybelline Counters (at the moment) and Flipkart
Beauty Hack: Slice of the crayon tip lightly to get the tint color much stronger
While I was at the counter, I realized that their testers had the blunt tips and the color payoff was pretty damn good. So I tried at home and it works. So there you go. Yes, you are Welcome!

Maybelline Newyork Summer Essentials Kit

Beauty

maybelline summer essentials

Summer Essentials often change for me every year. While I always made sure to keep up with the newest launches for the season, there were always some exceptions. I often tweaked my routine to match my skin needs to make sure I get the best out of what I use.

And coming to makeup, be it summer or any other season, I always made sure stock up on season appropriate makeup so I don’t deviate much from my routine. But summers in Hyderabad have been pretty hot and humid lately.

If last year was pretty hot, this year it turned out to be scorching hot. So I have toned down the number of products I use this time. I preferred to keep it simple and to restrict myself to just 3 summer essentials.

Luckily, Maybelline just sent over their summer kit and honestly, this turned out to be the exactly 3 essentials I wanted.

Here’s what I got in the Summer Essentials kit –

  • The Colossal Kajal
  • White Super Fresh Compact
  • Babylips in Berry Crush

 

The Colossal Kajal

The Colossal Collection is one of my favorites from Maybelline Newyork. I just love their Colossal Liner better than any eye liner in the market. And to accompany it, there’s no better companion than the Colossal Kajal.

If you love their kajals as much as I do, you should check out their all new colossal kajal in super black. It’s the best!

White Super Fresh Compact

Maybelline New York‘s White Super Fresh Compact Powder is a 12 hour perfecting compact which helps to stay fresh, fair and always in control! It’s perfect for a Girl On The Go. It comes in a chic white case which is simply convenient and easy to carry around for all the frequent touch ups.

You can read my full and detailed review here

 

Babylips

Another all time favorite is the Babylips collection. As much as I love their Candy Wow collection, their Babylips originals are still one of the best.

You can read about their babylips spiced up collection here

 

 

Kajal for the eyes to make them look bigger and brighter, compact to keep my face shine free and babylips to keep my lips supple and soft with a subtle hint of color.

Can anything be more perfect for summer?

Product Review | Organic Harvest Strawberry Lip Balm

Beauty
organic harvest

organic harvest

Organic Harvest is a name that’s synonymous with the natural and organic products. I remember my first encounter with Organic Harvest when Fab Bag (earlier Vellvette bag) sent out their body washes. Though I was never a big fan of lavender scent, I simply loved their body wash for the way it made my skin feel. That said, I am using their Green Cucumber toner (let me tell you I strongly detest the scent of cucumber) occasionally and I kind of like it. So, I haven’t disliked any of the Organic Harvest products so far. And when I received this Organic Harvest Strawberry Lip Balm I sort of had pretty big hopes pinned.

Here’s what the product claims –

Claims –

Lip balm enriched with moisturizers and strawberry flavor protects lips from dryness and provides long term hydration.

Key Ingredients –

EcoCert certified lanolin, Shea butter, BHT and food grade strawberry flavor. No Color Added

*Color of the product may change due to the use of Organic and Natural ingredients.

How to Apply –

You can apply it by closing your lips together like you are going to kiss something, or simply smile with your lips closed, and apply the dome to both of your lips at the same time.

Price – 149 INR *introductory price (orginal price 199 INR)

Love –

  • Cute packaging
  • Faint strawberry scent
  • Natural and organic ingredients
  • Travel friendly (sort of)
  • Affordable
  • Moisturizes well

Do not Love –

  • Not very convenient to use
  • Not a highly moisturizing lip balm

This is the affordable version of the so much hyped EOS lip balm by our very own Indian brand. That said, luckily these lip balms are not as big as EOS ones which look so inconvenient to use. But at same time, the hygiene part is still debatable.  Unlike the lip balms and chap sticks that come in stick form, these balms tend to get exposed a lot more than required and have high chances of getting unclean soon. However, on the up side, these lip balms can moisturize the lips in one swift motion too.

If you are looking for lip balms that are heavy duty and/or high performance lip balms, then these are surely don’t fit the bill. However, these are awesome for the day wear and/or to prep the lips before using any lip color.

Overall, these cute little lip balms are sure catchy to the eye and with such a budget price it’s hard to resist these.

Other available variants – Shea, Green Apple, Pomegranate

So which one have you tried?
