My experience with Loreal Eyeliner | Loreal Silkissme True Teal
The body of the pencil is the same color as that of the eye pencil. The cap is transparent and it has a huge golden rim. In all, it looks really classy.
Colour and texture
The name of the shade is “true teal” and this is a dark blue shade and it has a silky smooth, soft texture and glides easily on the eyes.
It doesn’t have any kind of fragrance.
This is the second shade that I purchased from the loreal infallible silkissime silky shiny eyeliner. I purchased this in the shade “true teal” and true to its name, it is a teal shade, meaning it is a sea green shade which is best suited to be applied during the daytime and this shade will beautify your eyes and make them pop out. Of course, it can be applied during the night, but this particular shade, I prefer for daytime usage. Now to the features- it has been ophthalmologically tested, hence can be worn by people who have sensitive eyes and people who wear contact lenses. It has a rich silky formula and is smudge resistant and glides like butter on the eyes. It hasn’t been provided with a sharpener so you will have to invest in a sharpener separately. It is smudge proof and intensely pigmented. In all, the shade is beautiful and I love it. I also recommend it to people who want to try out eyeliners in shade other than black.
Overall performance of Loreal Eyeliner | Loreal Silkissime True Teal
Apt for daytime wear
Brightens the eyes
Settles comfortably on eyes
Can be used by people who have sensitive eyes
Stays for a good 6 to 8 hours
No sharpener provided
Sort of expensive if not purchased during sale
Would I repurchase or recommend this?
Yes, I will definitely repurchase other shades and recommend this product to every person looking out for beautiful colored eyeliners.
Glossypolish verdict: The loreal infallible eyeliner in true teal is a great shade especially during the summers and during the daytime. This shade brightens up your eyes and best if you want to try something new and experiment with different eye looks. This is a must buy product.

My Experience with Coloressence Lip Liner Maroon
Packaging: Comes in a black body with a slight maroon detailing at the side to complement the shade that it has. You swirl it up and glide it on the lips. It’s quite handy which can be carried anywhere you go.
Shade, Texture, and Pigmentation: It’s a beautiful skin brightening shade which will suit all kinds of skin tones. The beautiful maroonish plum shade is such that can be worn alone without having to wear a lipstick on the top. It’s highly pigmented and glides smoothly on the lips. Also, it feels really light on the lips.
Fragrance: Has a soft flowery fragrance that’ll lift up your mood.
Staying power: Dude, it has a POWERFUL stay!! It’s really long-lasting!
It does not bleed but transfers a little (very little). It stays for a whole day without bleeding and melting.
Experience: I don’t really outline my lips and then do the lipstick. I’m more into applying the lip shades without defining or outlining them with a lip liner. The only reason why I purchased it was the beautiful shade and the pigment it has <3 LOVE the COLOUR!!
I’m always inclined towards the dark plum and wine shades. Always. These shades are such that suit all kinds of complexions be it fair or dusky and make you feel beautiful from within.
I use this beautiful lip liner as a lipstick and wear it alone which gives me the perfect matte look without coating my lips thickly. It’s really smooth and easy to swirl. The mild flowery fragrance that it has is another loved factor. It smells really good and fresh. I wear this on a casual day out. It stays for a day in my case. It transfers a little but it doesn’t melt or bleed. This color works great with formals. Planning to wear this on my interview day 😛
It kinda brightens up my face and gives a radiant look. If you’re not a matte person then you can apply a clear balm on the top of it! It’s super affordable! I mean you get such a prize for 145 bucks. It has 5 other shades as well! Thinking to try them soon!

A lovely skin-brightening Shade.

Would I Repurchase and Recommend?
I’m surely repurchasing this one.
Reviewing Faces Kajal. It is their Long wear eye pencil solid black. I almost feel it is the best eyeliner pencil I have used. Black is the most common and trendy color used and will never go out of fashion. It is an achromatic color darkest of all with no hues. It was one of the first colors used in art prehistorically.

How to use:
To add depth to the eyes, gently apply the pencil on the lower waterline.
My experience with Faces Kajal:Long-Wear Eye Pencil Solid Black
This is one product that my mom would not change at all. She would not choose any product over this she loves it. Finished at least 5 till now. I thought even I could give it a try and yes this is beautiful.
I love the texture it’s so smooth and soft to glide it on the eyes. The product has deep intense pigmentation quality. Lasts pretty long and is smudge proof and waterproof formula. Does not need a touch up fast but after 4-5 hours at least.
The product comes in a black pencil with a black lid to protect the nib. The tip needs to be sharpened and this is one thing that I do not like this leads to product wastage. If not sharpened the thing around the product starts troubling the eyes and it actually hurt me.

Smooth and easy to apply
Would I recommend?
Yes, I would definitely recommend to everyone and repurchase the product.

I am reviewing L’Oreal Glam Shine 6 hours Purple Obsession Lipstick 501. The L’Oreal Glam Shine range has beautiful shades and they are really pretty.
Basic info of L’Oreal Glam Shine 6 hours Purple Obsession Lipstick
Rs. 925 for 6ml.
L’Oréal Paris introduces Glam Shine 6 Hours, our 1st lip-gloss that shines for up to 6 hours! Offering a perfect balance between shine and staying power, just one sweep is enough to achieve plump, glossy looking lips. The heart-shaped wand is specially designed to glide over lip contours, giving a precise application. Choose from a wide collection of shimmering shades with colors ranging from natural nudes and soft pinks to glamorous reds and beautiful browns.
My experience with L’Oreal Glam Shine 6 hours Purple Obsession Lipstick
The L’Oreal Glam Shine Purple Obsession is the pretty purple shimmery shade to go with. It is a lip-gloss, not a lipstick as per the texture as it is liquidy and gloopy. The formula is a bit sticky which can irritate while taking the lipstick off.
The product is well pigmented and gives it a plum look. It is very moisturizing because of the consistency you can feel it on the lips all the time and also transfers. It lasts for approximately 2-3 hours, which is ok for a lip-gloss.
The packing is pretty curvy and glam with a dual coat acrylic layer. The shade is mentioned on the bottom of the pack. The bottle is transparent through which we can see the shade. The wand is what I love the most for a precise application the shape is amazing pointed towards the end and lets let go in every corner.

Would I recommend?
I would recommend it to people looking for a lip-gloss but not as a lipstick. The shade is pretty good to go with and gives a very shiny shimmery effect.
Eyeshadows play such an important part of every person‘s life because they completely change the look of your entire attire. It helps accentuate the eyes and make them look bold and sexy. Hooded eyes or sunken eyes, eyeshadows are for everyone. That is what I think. What say beauties? I saw loads of youtube videos on how to apply eyeshadow and then realized I have hooded eyelid and I again had to learn the tips and tricks to apply eye makeup for hooded eyes since there are different techniques to apply eyeshadow on people who have hooded eyes. Read on to know more about the Revlon 12 Hour Eye Shadow 01 Copper Spice.
Details about Revlon 12 Hour Eye Shadow 01 Copper Spice

Use the brush given in the product and take the lightest shade and apply it to the inner corner of the eyes and take the darkest shade and apply it on the outer corner of the eye making it look like a winged eyeliner. Use the middle two shades and blend them on the top of the lid and blend and blend. It is recommended to use an eyeshadow primer prior to usage of any eyeshadow since this helps the eyeshadow really pop out its color. It also helps the color stay for a longer duration.

My experience with Revlon 12 Hour Eye Shadow 01 Copper Spice
It is packed in the usual quad eyeshadow box with an applicator in it. There are 4 shades in one box and the name of the shade is written behind the box and also, the ingredients are listed.
Colour and texture
The name of the eyeshadow set is copper spice and it has a powdery texture. The first one is the base shade and is a light shimmery cream shade. The second one is a beautiful rose gold shade. The third one is a reddish- brown, copper kind of shade. The last but not the least one is a very dark maroon-brown shade
It has absolutely no kind of fragrance
I purchased this product a little while ago when I was a beginner in applying eyeshadows. Since then, I have had a fascination and liking towards these really cute packed eyeshadows since they completely change the look of the entire face in a beautiful way. There are 4 shades and they transition from the darkest brown to the lightest cream shade which gives neutral looks and makes it ideal to be used on an everyday basis. I have hooded eyes which makes a lot of difference in the way I apply eyeshadow and people with sunken eyes would apply. I have to apply the product near to my eyebrow as well to actually make it look like I have applied eyeshadow. It is indeed hard. People with hooded eyes can completely relate to it. But in all, I like the texture and quality of the product which makes it an ideal candidate to be repurchased. It doesn’t crease or fall off, it stays for a good 4 to 5 hours and it is easy to blend as well. It doesn’t make the eyelids oily and an eyeshadow primer prior to this is not a requirement. In all, this is a great product.
This eyeshadow is apt for people who are beginners since it blends in easily. Hence I would recommend it to people who are just starting out with the application of make-up. But since it has a powdery texture, it won’t stay for more than 4 to 5 hours which means it is apt to be used on a daily basis and not during any special occasions. Also, I wouldn’t repurchase the same shade, but will definitely repurchase other shades.
Here again, I am with a product of VLCC but this time its a shampoo belonging to the same.I got this product around two months ago from a nearby store. There are many hair care products from VLCC but I chose this, VLCC Nourishing and Silky Shine Shampoo. let’s see how this would have worked for me.

My Experience With VLCC Nourishing And Silky Shine Shampoo
The shampoo comes in a big transparent cylindrical shaped bottle.The bottle has a white colored flip cap. The transparent bottle helps us to check the amount of shampoo left. The bottle has its logo on the front and all the necessary details about the product at the back. The packaging of the shampoo is sturdy and leak proof.But the packaging of the shampoo is quite bulky and not fit for travel purposes.
Color And Consistency
The shampoo is translucent greenish liquid.The consistency of the shampoo is neither too thick nor too runny, it spreads evenly on wet hair. It lathers pretty well.
The shampoo has some mixed fruity fragrance resembling fragrances of some citrusy fruits.It has a really nice and refreshing smell which is very pleasant.It smells does not stay for too long.
To me, this shampoo is having an average kind of results. After using this I ain’t felt any breakage issues.It has added a bit of luster to my hair but has not given any silky or shiny results.I can say it has provided nourishment to my hair as claimed, not made my hair appear silky.But the shampoo has a good result when you use it with conditioner. One good thing is that it has not led to hair fall.While application only little quantity of shampoo is required and it properly cleaned the hair removing all sort of dirt and oil to the hair.If I had a last night hair oil massage then I prefer using it twice for proper cleaning.
Overall Performance Of VLCC Nourishing And Silky Shine Shampoo

Would I Repurchase Or Recommend?
Yes, I definitely repurchase and recommend this product to everyone who is looking for a shampoo that can provide proper nourishment to their hair and reduce hair fall.I would suggest using shampoo with a conditioner to get silky and shiny results. It is an easily available product which you can easily get from a nearby store.I can say you can give it a try.
Glossy Polish Verdict-
It is a great shampoo for natural cleansing of hair but not good for people with excessive dry hair.
I am reviewing my Chambor Velvette Touch Lip Liner Pencil BR 03. More than a fan of lipsticks I am a big fan of lip liners. I find it more long-lasting. The liner is deep brown in color. The range with code BR contains all the brown shades.
I like using dark colors on my lips as my lips are a bit pigmented so it covers well, light and nude tones look dull, dark colors are bold. This velvette touch lip liner is smooth but not very creamy which gives a matt look.
Basic Info About Chambor Velvette Touch Lip Liner Pencil BR 03
Soft & Smooth formula, which glides effortlessly on the lips. It prevents the lipstick from feathering.
Rs.300 for 1.14g.
How to use:
Use the lip liner to create a perfect lip shape. Can also be filled in lips for better lasting of the lipstick.
My experience with Chambor Velvette Touch Lip Liner Pencil BR 03
This Velvette Touch Lip Liners color is chocolaty brown (deep). The texture is very soft and well pigmented. It glides on the lips very easily and outlines well. I usually use a lip balm after or before applying a lip liner to hydrate my lips or a tinted balm to give it a different glossy shade. This liner when applied gives a matte look on the lips. It lasts for approximately 3-4 hours if applied alone.
About the packing, I like the diamond pattern the pencil has on top and the outer color of the pencil is the actual shade of the liner. It is a pencil liner so it does need sharpening. We should always keep the tip of the liner rounded not pointed for an easier application.
I would definitely recommend to the people who like using shades of brown, they have 1 more shade in brown which is BR1. Really a good choice!! I would definitely repurchase and also try other colors in the Velvette range of Chambor.
What’s the number of rule of good skin care? Wash your face with a good face wash every day. A good face wash should remove dirt, oil, dead cells and makeup and keep the skin looking fresh. However, with such a wide variety of face washes available in the market, it becomes very difficult to choose the correct one for your skin type. I discovered Bajaj No Marks Neem Face Wash on my visit to the local supermarket. It was the presence of ingredients like neem, lemon, and clove that attracted me to try it.
Details about Bajaj No Marks Neem Face Wash
This face wash is enriched with encapsulated beads of neem that help in removing excess oil and deep-rooted dirt. It also claims to provide relief from sunburn, blemishes and acne/pimple problems.
Preservatives: Sodium methylparaben, Sodium propylparaben, and Benzalkonium chloride
Colours: Brilliant Blue FCF and Tarazine.
My experience with Bajaj No Marks Neem Face Wash
Packaging: The face wash comes in a transparent tube with a flip open cap. It’s got green labels on it which have all the details of the product. The packaging is quite sturdy and travels friendly.
Application instructions: Apply all over the wet face in circular motion. Wash off and pat dry.
Colour, texture, and fragrance:
This face wash is green in color with dark green beads in it. It’s gel-like in texture and spreads quite easily on the face. It has a strong neem fragrance. You can also smell the clove once you apply it on your face. Even though the fragrance is quite strong, it is quite refreshing.
I have oily skin, so I have to be careful about the kind of products I use on my face. I bought this face wash as it claims to prevent pimples. The face wash is dark green in color which does not appear to be very natural. The dark green beads (which according to the brand are beads of neem) get dissolved as you rub the face wash on your face. The face washes lathers well and is easy to wash off. As I mentioned earlier I loved the neem and clove fragrance of this product. The face wash did not dry out my skin too much. In fact, my skin felt oil-free even after a few hours of washing my face.
As far as acne is concerned, I can not say that I have not had any pimples after I have used this. However, it has helped reduce pimples on my skin. Unfortunately, it does not help much in reducing dark spots on the skin.
Overall Performance of Bajaj No Marks Neem Face Wash
Contains neem, lemon, and clove
Effective in reducing pimples
Great for oily skin
Contains artificial colors
Does not help in reducing dark spots
Would I repurchase or recommend?
Yes. I will definitely repurchase this product as it suits my oily skin. I will not recommend it for women with dry skin as it may dry it out further. If you do not like the smell of neem or cloves, stay away from this face wash.

My Experience with Nivea Aloe Body Cream Refreshing Moisturiser
Packaging- This body butter comes in a white plastic tub. Most of the body butter are packed in tubs so there is nothing new in it. But, this small tub is very travel-friendly unlike the bulky ones containing too much product. The packaging mentions all the necessary information regarding the product inside, There is complete ingredient list, usage direction and a diagrammatic representation of the main ingredient; aloe vera. This body butter is available in two sizes which again I find really nice because the user is at liberty to invest in a bulky tub for everyday home use or small tub for travel purpose.
Colour & Texture- The body cream is pure white in color and its consistency is medium. It gets spread easily and gets absorbed pretty fast. The consistency is perfect for every season if you have normal skin. It does not make my skin stretchy for at least 4-5 hours in this tremendous cold and windy weather.
Fragrance- There is light aloe vera fragrance in this cream. The fragrance did not seem flattering to my senses as I am not a fan of aloe fragrance. The smell does not linger too much. If you wear clothes immediately after applying this cream to your skin then the smell will stay more but otherwise the fragrance goes off in an hour or so.
Experience- This body butter is one of the best lightweight body butter. It supples up my skin and that too without any oily residue. The formula is non-sticky which is again a nice thing for me. I generally apply it after a bath when my skin is slightly damp. It locks the moisture and my skin does not feel stretchy for considerate time. This product is very mild on skin. It does not give my annoying body acne. I wish Nivea would come up with better fragrance and paraben-free formulation. This body butter can substitute the regular body lotions.

Nivea Aloe Body Cream Refreshing Moisturiser is the cheapest body butter in Indian market currently. It is a good product that gets absorbed fast and gives smooth and nourished skin. Though I could not like the fragrance much, I cannot deny the effectiveness of this product. So, this body cream will stay on my repurchase list. If you want a nice and affordable body butter without creating a big hole in your pocket then try this one.
