Beautyblender vs Silisponge... which one is worth the Hype???

Every beauty guru and make up artist swears by this amazing the original beautyblender Modernize the Way You Make Up. So definitely I was looking forward to grab my hands on it since very long. Trust me, this is the best makeup tool I have ever invested in lately. Ever since I got my beautyblender, I am completely obsessed over it. It has surely been the biggest game changer in how I do my base makeup. I feel I should have bought it last year itself.
Being super active on Instagram, I come across many makeup products and tools every now and then. So when I came across this Silisponge, I was like what is it with this new weird stuff? So I saw couple of videos and reviews related to this Silisponge/Silicone Blender. Many beauty gurus were trying it out and personally, even I wanted to check whether this new Silisponge is really worth the hype or not! 

So, lets check in my blog post Beautyblender vs Silisponge... which one is worth the Hype???

To be honest, this beautyblender isn't going anywhere till ages from my collection of makeup tools. I think there is no replacement of this miracle sponge with any other makeup applicators. You might be thinking I am over exaggerating and too bias with this already, but must say its totally worth the hype!!!
This beauty blender comes with a tiny manual on how to use it. All you need to do is saturate it in water by squeezing and then towel dry to remove excess water. This damp BB is then ready to use. All you need to do is just dip in your makeup and apply it in stippling motion. Easy to use and clean. This beauty blender can be used for applying various beauty, skincare and makeup products. Also; its great for both wet and powder makeup products.This beauty blender reaches even to the slightest inner corner of your eye. As you know this part is the most difficult one to blend your makeup in, this blender is the best one to use. A versatile makeup tool must say. Its very soft and gentle. When compared, beautyblender gives an amazing flawless makeup finish. Personally I feel as if I am not wearing to much makeup. Feels like a natural layer on your skin. It helps to even out the makeup and give even coverage all over. Minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores. Best for using foundations and concealers. Specially concealer under the eye feels natural with it and blends super easily. Great to use powders for baking technique as well. It doesn't soak up much of your product as its used damp. Gives a natural dewy finish to your makeup. Simply love it!
So according to me, I think beautyblender is totally worth the hype!!! After using it, even I can swear by it for my makeup application. So go ahead and give it a try without any second thoughts. I got this beautyblender online from Nykaa.com for 1899 INR. It is costly but totally worth it...

So coming back to the Silisponge even I was skeptical about buying it. But as I wanted to try it out, I got myself one.This Silisponge as mentioned is made from silicone,its transparent and quite squishy. Soft and delicate to touch and feel. The best part is, it doesn't soak any product on it. While applying all you have to do is simply dab it all over your face. The foundation or any wet product that you want to apply actually gets totally transferred on your face as it. So the makeup products don't change its texture or formula. For example, if your foundation is dewy so exact dewy finished foundation will be on your face rather than the moisture in the product getting soaked up in any other makeup tools like, sponge or brush. The foundation blends easily. Also; its easy to use and clean. Apply foundation or concealer with it directly and once done clean it under running tap water or with makeup remover wipe. This gives a heavy foundation look and high coverage. Also, less product is required while using this Silisponge.
What I didn't like about this Silisponge is that it gives a finish of having too much makeup on one's face. You can actually see that you have applied makeup on your face. The finish is not natural and thus can be used for high and heavy coverage makeup looks. Also; it is difficult to use under eyes as it doesn't blend well and is difficult to reach the inner corner of the eye. Here you need to use some blending tools separately to give even finished foundation and concealer look for your base makeup. Definitely not used for powder application as it cannot blend the dry products well making everything patchy. You can use this Silisponge along with other blending sponge or beautyblender to achieve a perfect desired look for wet foundations and concealers.
So, considering all the things I would say, Silisponge is definitely not worth the hype!!! As you require other makeup tools along with it to have a perfect base for your face.. So if you just want to experience it you can buy this Sislisponge from Amazon.com for the price of 399 INR. 

Comparing both the blenders, I would definitely give a thumbs up to the beautyblender and will swear by it God knows how many times. Single tool to help you get that perfect flawless base or sculpted look. Where as Silisponge definitely can't work all by itself for that best result. So its up to you whether you want the high price beautyblender which is totally worth the hype or the Silisponge which requires a great effort to achive the look.

I hope you all liked my post on Beautyblender vs Silisponge... which one is worth the hype??? Please go ahead and try these makeup tools as it is always good to experience different stuff and products.

My March Favorites 2017...

 Hi Everyone!!! It is already last week of April and it seems like all the months are passing so quickly. In fact now I feel did March really happened to me or not! LOL. So as usual before the month ends, I am back with My Favorites post for you all. Feels like it has become some sort of ritual for me every month to post Monthly Favorites but trust me, I really love doing Favorite posts.

As the time flew off so quickly and due to the constant new blog stuff running in my head, I really had to think hard on what I loved all over the last month. So apart from the products that I repeat regularly, here is what I came up with for you all.

So lets begin with My March Favorites 2017...

 Naked 3 URBAN DECAY by beauty with an brush made in china, is one of My Favorites for March 2017. These brushes are not original Urban Decay. Yes, they are fake! I researched a lot and found out that this brush set though has the famous brand name, they are not original as Urban decay never launched such brush set till date. But as a beginner these makeup brushes are really great to use and have a very good quality. Very soft bristles and variety when compared to the price. This set comes with 12 brushes for face, eyes and lips and are easy to hold and use. Though these were fake Urban decay I wanted to try out these brushes out of curiosity as the reviews were pretty good. Definitely good for traveling when you don't want to pack and load many expensive brushes. Just carry this box and you are good to go. I got this brush set at a very affordable price of 399 INR from Amazon.in. When compared to the price the brush set is really amazing quality wise and the packaging and look of the brushes is nice. The only thing I didn't like is that they copied the famous brand name. But if you really wanna try these simply go ahead. Also; as a beginner if you don't want to invest in high priced makeup brushes, this brush set will make you happy.

 BIODERMA Sensibio H2O Make-up removing micelle solution is definitely one of My Favorites for March. After Lo'real micellar water, I really wanted to try this one and found out that its quite good comparatively. Also, I posted this as my current favorite on my Instagram account in March. Sensibio H2O gently cleanses and removes dirt and makeup from eyes and face. It is really gentle on eyes and is safe even for sensitive skin. It not only cleanse but also soothes your skin  from irritation and the pretend D.A.F. complex helps to raise the skin's tolerance threshold. Excellent cutaneous and ocular tolerance. Simple and easy to use. Just soak cotton pad and gently remove makeup from face & eyes and dry gently. Also; can be used to cleanse dirt and grime even if you don't wear makeup. No water required to rinse separately. I got this Sensibio H2O 250ml at a discounted price of 760 INR from Amazon.in 

 The next Favorites are P.S. NAIL POLISH in the shade NP004 which is an amazing Nude Pink gel nail polish and PS... QUICK DRY NAIL POLISH in the shade 02-GOLD & 03-PINK which dries in 60seconds, were my on the go nail color shades for last month. All the three nail colors are awesome and I have been loving them a lot lately. Very good quality and must say very affordable. I got this Nude Pink shade at the price of 0.80 GBP and the other two Gold and Pink for 0.60 GBP from Primark, U.K.

"Summer Chic" with Lifestyle-Store spring/summer 2017...

Whenever I go out for shopping, Lifestyle Store is one stop for me where I personally love buying for self and others every now and then. Even for my makeup and fashion blogs, I love to source various stuff from this amazing store. I recently did a lot of summer shopping from Lifestyle Store which you all will be seeing soon in my upcoming fashion blogs. The spring/summer collection is quite affordable yet stylish as always with a huge variety. So, I thought of creating a "Summer Chic" fashion look with this latest collection by Lifestyle.

Ginger basics is one of my favorite brands of Lifestyle Store that I keep adding to my wardrobe every time. This basic plain Black Skater Skirt really grabbed my attention. Personally, I am a huge fan of skater skirts. It is a non-denim skirt, quite a good one to wear in summer. I really loved how stylish and chic appearance the skirt has. The box pleats add more style statement to this basic skirt. Its up to you whether to wear it high or low waist according to your choice, as this skirt comes with an adjustable elastic waist. I got this skirt for 899 INR. 
I paired this skirt with an Off White Knitted Top of Smiley World. Trust me the new Smiley World collection is really good to invest at Lifestyle Store this season. A huge variety of fashion to put your hands on for sure. This smiley print top is perfect for this summer. I decided to tuck it in for more elegant look. Very comfortable and soft. I got this top for 599 INR. Also; I am carrying a Black Sling Bag by Ginger which I already had in my bag collection long back. I got this bag for 499 INR approx.
To get the complete summer chic look, I am wearing a basic black watch by Fastrack, and a basic white belt & silver hoops(earrings) from Colaba Causeway, Mumbai with my all time favorite black Primark boots. I kept my hair messy and wavy. For makeup I chose a sun-kissed bronze makeup look with black smokey eyes and coral peachy orange lips. This overall look was really effortless and in few minutes I mixed and matched my clothes and accessories and I was good to go.

This look was really simple and easy to get without even spending much. I was really happy how this overall look turned out for me. Also; you can create your own style by adding various elements to your fashion outfits. So, go and grab yourself this amazing spring/summer collection at Lifestyle Store near you.

The Most Painful Mask Ever!!! - SHILLS Black Mask...

Hi Everyone!!! Today I am going to give you a review on my experience with this unusual Black Mask by SHILLS. Being active on social media, you might have come across this Black Mask many times. If not, must tell you that this mask is quite a popular one on Instagram. Every now and then you will find people trying out this Black Mask which finally got me so obsessed that I could not stop myself from buying it. Though I was scared about how weird and gross it looked in the pics and videos of the users, I still wanted to try and experience it.

So lets begin with the review...

SHILLS Natural Science Black Mask is a Purifying peel-off Mask as it is mentioned. It helps in deep cleansing and smooths the skin texture. Also; increases vitality of the skin. This Black Mask removes dulling surface cells and impurities while vitamins and plant extract soften the skin to restore a youthful glow.
This peel-off mask gets it black color from the activated carbons present in the formula. Definitely looks like a tar on your face. The ingredients used are mentioned at the back of the pack itself that makes it easy to know what the mask consists of. The formula has a good fragrance and is in liquid form, as you can see in the pics. The formula is actually wet sticky and gluey. The surprising part is that the Black Mask becomes way too tight after it dries up completely that I could not even move my lips slightly. It feels weird and like a tight plastic film stuck on your face.
The scary part is that it is The Most Painful Mask Ever!!! Never tried such peel-off mask ever before. As soon as I removed this mask, my eyes started to water for about 5-10 minutes due to the pain I felt while peeling it off. My skin was all red and felt hurt. My skin took 10-15 min to get back to normal even after applying toner and moisturizer. I could see white thread like substance on my removed mask. It was difficult to tell whether it was dead skin or the blackheads and whiteheads. My most painful mask experience ever till date.
Though after the horrible experience, my skin definitely felt clean and bright after it was normal. As my skin is oily, it didn't feel oily at all after using this mask. Even when I woke up the next morning it was bright and oil-free. One thing I would like to tell is that I was very excited to watch the blackhead removal thing happening to me, like the ones in the videos they upload on social media. But I was disappointed that my deep cleansing was not gross like those videos or may be I should be happy that I have less dirty skin! LOL. After I tried this mask, the remaining impurities were visible on the surface of my skin, which was easy to cleanse with a mild scrub the next day.
How to use the mask is written on the pack. All you need to do is apply it on a clean, no makeup face. It works even better if you use a warm napkin to help open pores before applying the mask. Its important to avoid your eye area, eyebrows and lips. Remove the mask after 20-30 min. Cleanse it with toner or water to get rid of remaining residue on the skin. Definitely apply cooling toner and light weight moisturizer after the removal. I got this Black Mask from amazon.in for 1290 INR which I think is slightly expensive for 50ml.
 My overall review about this Black Mask is that one must try it at least once. Its a nice one for your deep cleansing as it works like a glue by sticking to the face and removing dirt and grime deep from the skin surface. I would definitely not recommend this mask for sensitive skin because its really painful and causes redness of skin. Otherwise its good for other skin types. So go ahead guys and girls and give it a shot if you want to.
