Makeup Clearout

By Monday, December 28, 2015 , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,

This was long overdue. I have been holding on to stuff that had expired or stuff I didn't like and even some empty ones. I don't know why I did that. But finally I did it and got rid of some stuff that was just piling on. So let’s see what all products I cleared out.

Here they are:

Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Waterproof Mascara – One of my favourite mascara. Love the way it pumps up the lashes and holds the curl. Doesn’t smudge or flake but not the easiest one to remove. 

Lasplash Liquid Eyeliner – I got this one in a beauty box long time ago. Nice product. Has a long handle and a nice thin brush. Not a big fan of the glitter in it.

Oriflame Dual Eyeliner in Electric Purple – Love the colour but I did not like this at all. I find it very dry and is not at all smooth in application. Colour pay off wasn’t great either.

Revlon Kajal Kohl Pencil – Nicely pigmented. Creamy but not to creamy that it crumbles. Smooth to apply but the staying power is not that great and it smudges badly. I applied it on waterline and an hour later I had panda eyes. Didn’t work for me.

Marielle Eyeliner in Silver and Gold – Both very beautiful shades and richly pigmented. Smooth to apply but again the staying power sucks. It transfers to my upper eyelids and starts fading just after two hours.

Avon French Manicure Kit – I bought it thinking doing French manicures at home would be fun but it was not. I never managed to get the right look. It comes with stencils and all and I tried it a couple of times but it never came out good so I finally gave up.

Revlon Nail Enamel in 323 and 385 – Love both the shades especially 323 Lavender. Pretty shade for summers and looked great on toes. 385 was deep brown shade with golden sparkles. Nice one for autumn/winter.

Loreal Jet Set – It is too thin and even after three coats it was not opaque. Colour is pretty wish it was more opaque.

Loreal Nail Enamel in Transparent – This one confuses me. Top coats are generally clear but it is not but it says it is. Did not like it at all, it changes the way base colour looks and it doesn’t add lot of shine so I don’t understand the purpose of it.

Avon Lipbalm in Strawberry – I have gone through a bunch of these and strawberry is one of my favourite flavour. Like how light weight and moisturising this is.

Isadora Mega Wet Lipgloss in Peach Sorbet and Choco Glaze– These are the mini ones. Sheer but very glossy looking. A bit sticky but not in a grose way. Okay product not a fan.

Vichy Idealia Face Cream – It is a sample size. Got it in one of the Glossy box. A light, refreshing cream, sinks in instantly and really perks up the skin. I have dry skin so this is more suitable for summers but in winters I need something richer. Plus it doesn’t have SPF. I prefer day cream with SPF.

Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator Lotion – I am so sad this has been discontinued. Lovely product. Looked great under the foundation or mixed in with foundation. Worked great as an highlighter on top of the cheekbones and temples and anywhere else you wanna highlight.

Hope you like this post!!
