My Top 5 beauty products in 2015

This post is about my favourite products in 2015. These 5 beauty products incredibly works great for me, and I really impressed with their quality and performance.                                      

Cover girl Outlast Stay 3 in 1 Foundation: This is truly 3 in one foundation and gives me instantly flawless skin.

Trilogy Rosehip Oil + Antioxidant: My skin looks and feels much better after using this. For my dry and sensitive skin its hard to find suitable product but this one is perfect. 

theBalm In theBalm of Your Hand: It is released at the end of the year, I fell in love with it after using it first time. It is the best palette by thebalm and great for those who do not want to spend on individual thebalm products.

Natio Blush Peach Glow Review: Its soft and creamy texture feels luxurious, I think Natio brand is often over looked, the quality of this blush is very similar to benefit Rocateur.

YSL Manifesto PerfumeIts floral woody smells feels classic, can not live with out it.

I hope you also has some fabulous favourite products in 2015.
And  Happy new year to all my readers, may this year bring happiness and success in your life :)

theBalm In theBalm of Your Hand Review

Price:49.95$ from David Jones, Target, Adore Beauty and 56$ from Sephora

The balm released In thebalm of your hand holiday face palettes, It contains 11 best of thebalm products.  I bought it for 35$ on cyber Monday when it was on 30% off.

 Swatches from left to right , Blushes (Hot Mama, Instain-Argyle, Cabana Boy) Bronzer (Bahama Mama)
 Swatches from left to right, Eye shadows (Shady Lady-insane jane,Shady Lady-mischevious marisa, Nude Tude-Sexy, Balm Jovi-Lead Zippelin) HIghlighter ( Mary lau manizer)
 Swatches left to right Lipstick (Thebalm Girl-Mia Moore), Lipstick and cream blush (Apples-Caramel)

In theBalm of Your Hand Palette has card board packing which is light weight, travel friendly and also looks gorgeous. The Palette contain following products which are also sold out as separate products.

  • 3 Blushes  (Hot Mama, Instain-Argyle, Cabana Boy), 
  • One Bronzer (Bahama Mama), 
  • One Highlighter (Mary-lau minizer), 
  • 4 Eye shadows from 4 different palette (Shady Lady-InsaneJjane,Shady Lady-Mischevious Marisa, Nude Tude-Sexy, Balm Jovi-Lead Zippelin),
  • One lipstick (The balm Girl-Mia Moore) 
  • One lipstick+cream blush (Apples-Caramel).

You can say that this is all in one palette. 

I have used all the products in this palette and I am really impressed, all of them are great. The powder products are super pigmented, creamy and finely milled. They applied and blended beautifully with out any fall out.  They last long on my face with out smudging and fading. Thebalm Girl-Mia Moore lipstick is creamy, highly pigmented and long lasting. Apples-Caramel is also very creamy but  not long lasting and not as pigmented as The Girl Mia more because it is lipstick+cheek colour.

The shade selection is  an other winner for this palette, all shades are suitable for all skin tones.  I have this problem with theBalm Voyage that some colours do not work on my olive skin tone, but the case is different with this one. 

I already own Hot mama blush separately and I checked the both products individualy and in palette, They are 100% same and I think that all the other products will have the same quality.

I highly recommend In theBalm of Your Hand palette, it is great for everyone, even if you are on a tight budget, you can get it on sale. You can never get wrong with this palette.

My Rating:5/5

Madam Glam Cosmetics Review*

Madam glam is an American cosmetics brand, their products are not tested on animals while they are also paraben free. Their products are available online in Australia. They have sent me few of their products, here is a my thoughts on Madam Glam cosmetics.

Madam Glam Matte Lipstick: 15.95$ 

It has strong packing and it is almost fragrance free. The lipstick it self is highly pigmented and one swipe is enough to show intense colour. The formula is not so creamy like all matte lipstick. The best thing about these lipstick is their lasting ability. They last for long time on my lips even I have to remove them properly at the end of the day. 

 Love it and highly recommend it for those who want vibrant long lasting lipstick. While these lipsticks are also great for those who are looking for matte Kylie Jenner Lips.

Madam Glam Blush: 15.99$

The blush has cute black and transparent packing with mirror and brush inside. The blush comes in 4 different shades. I own  touch of pink which is a matte pink shade. It is fragrance free, finely milled, silky and highly pigmented. A gentle touch to product is enough for use .  It glides smoothly on my checks with out falling out and blends beautifully into my skin. It looks great on my face, does not highlight dry patches or does not settle into line and pores. It has very good staying power and on my face it lasts for more than 8 hours. As I have sensitive skin I used it regularly and it really suits me. It did not break me out and did not cause any allergic reaction. I also use this as eye shadow and it works well as blush as well as eye shadow.

I really like this matte blush. you can see the swatches, it is highly pigmented and finely milled. I must say that this is my favourite product of  MadamGlam cosmetics, I highly recommend it. 

Madam Glam Eye shadow: 12$

 Madam Glam eye shadow is packed in a round pot, it highly pigmented, you can see in the photo. it blends easily and last for long time on my eye. The only downside is, it do fall out when i apply it on my eyelids, you you need to be very care full when you use this shadow. I use contact lenses and sometimes eye make up irritates my eye, but this this shadow works well with my sensitive eyes.

Overall I am impressed with the colour pay off but I need some more practice to apply it with out fall out.

You can see the swatches of all four products, all of them are highly pigmented and long lasting.
You can buy Madam Glam products on their website

Have a look on their website there are plenty of other products which can impress you.

*These products are provided by Madam Glam for review purpose but it does not affect my opinion. I am honest to my readers.

Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in unapologetic

Price: 17.95 from Priceline, Chemist Warehouse, supermarkets,Davidjones and Myer

Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm has nice Crayon like packing with twist function. It has soft texture and apply smoothly on my lips. It is highly pigmented and even soft touch show the vibrant colour. While it is matte balm so its not so creamy like all matte lip colours. I used it over any transparent lip balm just to keep my lips soft(as i have dry lips).

The best thing about this lip colour is its lasting power, it last on my lips for very long time which I love. This product is very similar to Revlon just bitten kissable balm.

I like this product, it is great for those who want long lasting lipcolour, but I will not recommend it for those who have very dry damaged or cracked lips.

Uriage Lait Demaquillant Cleanser Review

Price: 29.95$ from pharmacies and Priceline

Uriage Lait Demaquillant cleanser comes in a 250ml bottle packing. It is a bit difficult to use when product is going to finish. It has creamy texture and almost fragrance free.It does not leather much just like all creamy cleansers. It rinse off easily with out leaving any greasy residue.

It is ver gentle on my skin and does not make it dry. It removes make up, impurities and dirt with out stripping my skin. But it does not work for heavy foundations, water proof mascara or dark eye liner .

Overall I like this cleanser and recommend it for dry, sensitive, mature, normal or combination skin beauties. This cleanser does not work for those who have oily skin and want to remove heavy make up.

My Rating: 4/5

Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil

Price:  9.95$ from Priceline,Chemist warehouse, Big W,Target, Supermarkets

Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil comes in crayon like packing and it needs to sharp after few uses (which i do not like). It comes in variety of shades and easily available in Australia. 

The lip colour is very intense and one swap is enough to show pigment. It is has long lasting colour which lasts more than 6 hours. It can be used as lip liner and lipstick both, so its a kind of two in one products. It is not very moisturising like all the long lasting lipsticks but still it does not dry my lip.

I like this lip pencil and highly recommend it for every one and specially for those who want to have two in one product. It often goes on sale , I bought it for 5$ which is very cheap.

Natio Blush Peach Glow Review

Price:14$ from Priceline, Myer, David Jones and selected Pharmacies

I bought this blush few months back. and I just fell in love with it. I have used it many time and thought that I should review it on my blog to let others know about this beautiful product.

Natio blush comes in glazed round pack with out brush which I do not bother because I love to use my RT brush for all blushes. I bought it from Priceline and there was some sticker on back of it and when I peel it the label also peeled off, so I can't read its label. Any way, lets go to the actual review.

It is very pigmented, has creamy soft texture and applied smoothly with out any fall out. It has nice peach colour with little shimmers. Nation blush  works great with my dry skin, it does not highlight dry patches and does not settles into fine lines. It lasts on my face for long time even I do not need to reapply them. It is almost fragrance free and suitable for sensitive skin type too.

This blush really gives me beautiful peach glow. It can also be used as eyeshadow, I have tried it and it works great as eye shadow too.

I highly recommend it for everyone and for all skin types but I do not recommend it for those who want matte blush.

My Rating: 5/5
