Shade

Blue My Mind

How to use

Use Dry for a silky smooth application of luminous color.  Use Wet for a longer lasting more intense color effect.  Deeper tones work beautifully as an eyeliner.
In the mirror of my own experience

I was just fascinated to see its color and was really eager to find it. The shade really has the ability to make one crazy. Baked products always attracted me so this time I decided to  give it a try.
 
Packaging

It comes in a round pan packaging with a transparent lid. Inside the pan we find the baked shadow with a dual ended applicator/brush which is not impressive at all. The bristles of the brush are not soft  and the tip of sponge is also not very thick and smooth. There is no mirror provided with the pan so I can't call the packaging very impressive. But if I ignore these things, it's a cute packaging and very light weight for carrying out.The lid is also tight and secure.

 


Texture

The texture is extremely soft and smooth like butter. It spreads on the lids like a dream. I didn't find much fall fall out during application, very little which can be manage very easily. It does apply smoother and more evenly when applied wet than dry but I love to apply it dry.



Pigmentation

I was not sure about its pigmentation because I have found that many baked eye shadows are  not much pigmented but after touching this one all my doubts were cleared. it's highly pigmented & even one touch with your finger proves it intensity. You can apply it in wet form also for more intensity. I found it perfect in both ways either dry or wet.


Application

You can use it in many ways. At first I applied it with a black combination eyeshadow and found it beautiful. You can apply it alone all over the lids and with other other eye shadows too. In wet form you can use it as an eyeliner which looks very pretty.
Effect

Excellent!! I can say just one word after using it. It gives really an amazing effect to your eyes. I love to apply it as an eyeliner in day time and a full application on night occasion.

Lasting power

It has quite strong lasting power. I applied it for 3 to 4 hours but on seeing its intensity after 4 hours I can say that it can last for 5 to 6 hours very easily with out fading.

Good points

Cute secure packaging which is travel friendly too.
The texture is buttery soft and smooth.
There is no much fall out.
Highly pigmented.
Can be used as dry or wet, and you find it perfect in both forms.
It apply very smoothly on the lids.
Gives amazing effect in many ways.
Long lasting.
Reasonable price.

Dry(without primer)

Bad points

The packaging is not very impressive.

Finally...

Finally I love Milani Baked Metallic Eyeshadow Blue My Mind. The shadow has everything which I had expected from it. It's a high quality product from Milani. I would love to try out other shades from this collection, I'm eager to try some other products from this brand too.

Boyfriend shirt from Denizen- OOTD

Ever tried on your hubby's, boy friend's, brother's shirt?
And what did you feel after wearing them? Did you get any compliments from them?

Hahaha..are you confused with my silly question but I solve your confusion now...A few days  ago Denizen sent me a denim shirt from their Imran Khan range (I'm sure you would all aware about this particular range which has proved to be a big hit in the market. Anyways, the shirt is really fabulous which can be worn by both male and female.The only problem with me was the size of that shirt, when they asked me my size, I told them it was medium but after wearing it, I have to realize that that was not a female size so I should have chosen the small one, however, I wore the shirt and now I'm writing a quick review about that one.



Denizen Denim Shirt

It's a  lovely denim blue shirt with white and red combination. The special thing of this shirt is the signature of Imran Khan which is stuck on back of shirt's collar. 

Size

Medium 

Available in other sizes too

Price 

Not sure about the price

The color

Fabric

Denim

In the mirror of my own experience

When I first saw that shirt my  first word was WOW, because the shirt was looking fabulous at the first sight. The denim fabric was of its highest quality. I felt its fine quality after seeing and touching the fabric. I always love high quality denim. If you see the stitching of shirt, you'll surely be impressed by it. I wore it for a picnic in the morning and I felt so comfortable for whole day during the picnic. The only problem was the size which looked oversize but that was of course my fault. If I would have chosen small size that would have been perfect for me.  After wearing the whole day, I washed it in my washing machine and hardly found some wrinkles even I can set it with my hand and it'll be prepare for wearing the next time.

Finally....

I really love this shirt.This is the one of the most comfortable jeans I’ve owned!  They are the perfect length for male body! I like the color, and the design. I'll highly  recommend this range of Denizen to my hubby, brother, cousins and male friends. The quality, stitching  and design everything makes it is worth buying. Overall I'm completely impressed with this shirt and it's quality.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Transforming Potion-review

Hi everyone,
These days colorful eyeliners are in fashion. girls love to apply different colorful liners on their eyes, sometimes glittery and sometimes matte but the problem is that for it we have to buy so many liners for that. Sometimes this seems too expensive because a bottle of liquid liner other than black is usually used only 3-5 times & in this way the rest of product goes waste. But we shouldn't be worried because there are something in the market which not only fulfills our craze of applying different colorful eyeliners but also saves our money from buying different colors liquid eyeliners. Today I'm going to write about such a product which is an essential part of my makeup box and this is Urban Decay Eyeshadow Transforming Potion.



Urban Decay Eyeshadow Transforming Potion


Urban Decay Eyeshadow Transforming Potion can transform any eyeshadow to a liquid liner or liquid shadow.

What Urban Decay says...

Transform any eyeshadow to a liquid liner or liquid shadow with our double-ended magic wand! Dip a brush - packed with Potion - into your favourite shadow to create rich, smudge-proof colour. Use the thin brush for precision lining, or the larger brush to sweep colour across your whole lid.

Original price- 20 GBP
CR price- GBP 3.50

Weight

How to use

Take out the brush you wanna use and brush it over your eyeshadow you want to make a liquid liner. Use the thin brush for precision lining, or the larger brush to sweep colour across your whole lid.



In the mirror of my own experience

I have another eyeshadow transforming lotion from Illamasqua which I have reviewed sometime ago and this is another product for the same purpose. I found it so easy to transfer an eyeshadow in a liquid liner or shadow with this potion, I 'll share my experience with you but firstly examine some other part of this product.
Packaging

It comes in a purple packaging which is a recognized shade of Urban Decay. Inside the packaging, we find a purple bottle with two side brush , one side with a thin brush , you can read it on the bottle, this thin brush is for applying eyeliner and the other side the brush is a bit wide for applying shadow on the lid.  I found the eyeliner brush too thin and it's very difficult to apply an eyeliner  such a thin brush so I always use the wide brush for this purpose.

Brush

The wide brush
Both side
The thin brush
Texture

The liquid is quite runny in the bottle so one should be careful while using the potion. Apart from this always clean the brush after using the product before keeping the brush back in the bottle.



Application

The potion is really simple to use - I just brush it over the shadow a few times before applying it to my lids.It changes my favorite powder eyeshadow in a liquid liner very quickly. It works pretty good. It takes a bit of practice in the mixing process, to make your line show up really well. Make sure it's not too too runny or it will be a very light line of color.
Effect

I turned my Sleek Makeup  eye shadow into  an awesome sparkling brown liner that really gives my eyes a great  look. I've also tried it with some other  colors just to see what it would look like and I got it always perfect in transforming any eyeshadow into a liquid liner.

Lasting power

Whenever you turn your favorite color powder eyeshadow into a liquid one and apply on your lid as a liner or eye shadow, you should be free from the tension of reapplying the liner because it lasts almost all day long on the eyes.
  It provides long lasting power that pencil liners cant live up to. works great even with crappy drugstore shadows ive used.
Good points

Decent packaging, very travel friendly.
It can change your all favorite eyeshadows and loose pigments into a colorful eyeliners and the options are endless.
It works very quickly.
You get all the pigmentation of your eyeshadow changing into a liner.
It's very long lasting, can stay for whole day without reapplying.
It saves the money of buying more eyeliners so it's a good investment of your money.


Left- using UD transforming potion; Right- Original powder eyeshadow

 
Bad points

It's a bit expensive product but you can get it at a very cheap and unbelievable price on Cosmetic Revolution.
The texture of product is quite runny so one should be careful while using.
The brush, providing for eyeliner is too thin for lining on the lid.

Finally...

For me this works fantastically and even though it is not cheap, it's well worth it since it turns powder shadows into eyeliners and saves the money of buying more eyeliners. I love the wide  ends, wide can be used as a liquid eyeshadow application tool or to make a wide and even a thin line.the one thing i need everyday is eyeliner so i figured this would be a good investment..  I have tons of bright eyeshadows that I don't use anymore because I prefer a more natural look now, but I do like colorful liners sometimes - so this product is perfect for me.I'm very impressed with this product.

Rating

4.8/5

Recommendation

I'll recommend it to all my readers and friends who love to apply different colorful eyeliners on their eyes. I can say that it'll be a good investment of your money.

My interview with Imran Khan

I was invited for the Imran Khan collection launch by Denizen India. Unfortunately due to some family function, I wasn't able to go to Mumbai for this launch. 
Nevertheless, I had a few questions for Imran Khan which he has answered very truthfully, & I wanted to share this short interview with all my readers!



Me- Do you believe in brands??
Imran Khan- I’ve never been a brand person; I have no loyalty to any particular one. I pick up things purely based on what they look like. Of course, things that I see and people that I meet influence me.

Me-Which is your dream role? 
Imran- I really don't have any such dream role because I feel the roles or characters are created by the actor. 

Me-Describe yourself in just 1 word  
Imran– I guess you could say I am inquisitive. I love increasing my knowledge on interesting facts. So much so that my friends call me Wikipedia, because I know a lot of things and when my friends need to know about something they ask me. And then I say, ‘Did you know…?” which is a catchphrase of sorts for me. So we put that on a t-shirt in the Imran Khan Collection.



Finally I would say that Denizen-Imran Khan collection is a great hit & the things are really good!

Tomato on my lips.....Ellis Faas Glazed Lips-review, swatches & photos


Hi everyone
After a long long time, i,m now finally back to my place and trust me, I'm feeling very relaxed and free. I accept that I was away from my blog and readers but both had been in my heart, doesn't matter where I had been, however I want to say a BIG SORRY to my readers who have shown their frustration on my absence in their mails. I would want to tell them that I'll try to be regular now. I hope you all understand my problem.
I want to write a quick post on my favorite brand Ellis Faas today. It's a lovely lip color.

Ellis Faas Glazed Lips L304

Ellis Faas Glazed Lips L304 is one of their Glazed Lips range which is a range of glossy lip color. You could even call them lip gloss.

What Ellis Faas says...

A highly-pigmented lip-gloss for an ultra-wet, yet long-lasting splash of color that combines transparency and intensity. Non-sticky, thus providing superior comfort both in application and on the lips. Plant seed oils improve hydration and protect your lips.
A mega-shiny gloss to bring out your lips to the fullest, not only as a covering shade, but also as a mere stain.

Weight 

50 Gm

Price

$35,00

Ingredients


Hydrogenated Polydecene, Polybutene, Cera Microcristallina, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Diethylhexyl Adipate, Hydrogenated Styrene/Isoprene Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Prunus Domestica Seed Extract, Propylene Carbonate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Hexylene Glycol, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Dicalcium Phosphate. +/- May Contain: Mica, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491/77492/77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 75470 (Carmine), Red 7, CI 15850 (Red 6/Red 7 Lake), CI 73360 (Red 30 Lake), CI 45410 (Red 28 Lake), CI 45380 (Red 22 Lake), CI 42090 (Blue 1 Lake), CI 19140 (Yellow 5 Lake), CI 15985 (Yellow 6 Lake)

Shades

There are 9 beautiful shades in their Glazed Lips range. L304 is an orangish red shade, I can compare this shade to a tomato. It's very similar to a tomato's shade which is a beautiful combination of red and orange shades.

How to use

Apply Glazed Lips with the brush applicator first by painting the lips with just a small amount of gloss, then fully load the applicator to fill inside of the lips. Glazed Lips is also great for a more stained effect: just load a tiny bit of the gloss onto the applicator, apply and blot for a stain.
In the mirror of my own experience

When I first saw this shade on their website, I was fascinated about this pretty color because I never saw this shade in any other brand, the color of this lip color was really unique, it's neither fully orange nor red, you can just imagine a tomato after seeing this color. I really wanted to get this lip color because all new shades always attract me. I was very glad after getting this lip color because every new shade gives a new excitement and happiness to my look. 

Packaging

I think there is no need to say much about Ellis Faas packaging because I have written so much about it in my previous post. Their bullet pen packaging is perfect for a lip color though I don't like the packaging for their eye range.

Texture

The texture is very similar to a lip gloss texture but there is no shimmer in it at all. It spread on the lips so softly and gives a beautiful juicy effect to my lips. The texture is quite thin so small quantity is enough to get the right color.

Pigmentation

The pigmentation is amazing, in spite of a thin texture It gives its perfect shade just in one or two swipes. If you want a light effect on your lips, just one swipe will be enough, two swipe will be perfect for getting a deep color effect.

Application

I always apply a similar shade lip liner before wearing the lip color but you can apply it direct  on your lips. After applying blend it well to get a smooth finish. You can apply this lip color on your lipstick too for getting a super juicy effect.

Effect

After applying this lip color it feels I've eaten lot of tomatoes and my lips have taken their color. I really love this lip color, I don't know that this shade is available in any other brand but I seriously want to know about it now.

Lasting power

I can say just one word ' perfect' about this matter. It lasts 5 to 6 hour without any retouch and it's really unbelievable to see its glossy texture but I think this the difference in Ellis Faas and any other brand. I'm really impressed.
Good points

Beautiful packaging
very unique and pretty shade
light and soft glossy texture
highly pigmented
Very easy to use
Gives a plumpy effect to my lips
Amazing lasting power
A little amount is enough for getting the right color so it can
They ship world wide

Bad points

Not available in India, you can get it from online purchasing
A bit expensive

Finally...

I love this lip color, there is nothing bad in this product. The shade is amazing and will be perfect in every season, whenever you feel happy and want to apply something according to your mood, it'll be the first choice in my opinion. In spite of a glossy thin texture its lasting power is unbelievably long lasting. Ellis Faas products  have always made me surprised with their qualities, this is another impressive product from them.
Rating

5/5

Recommendation

No doubt, I'll strongly recommend this lip color to all my readers and friends. I'm sure they will love it after using it.
