Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel Review & Swatches (All Shades)

Hello everyone,
Today I bring forward an exciting new launch from Oriflame India and it is the newly launched The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel Range which is a one of its kind product and something different from the usual matte and liquid lipsticks I have been trying lately.Summer calls for bright lip colors and if you know me,you would know that I love bright lip colors,I would say brighter the better..Lol. So anyway I am going to share my thoughts on all the colors, the formula and what I think about them in this post.If interested to know more then please keep on reading...

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel Review & Swatches

Price: Rs. 699/- for 5ml product. But it on discount in the May 2017 catalogue at Rs. 489/- each


About the product:
Super-light liquid lipstick goes on like a gel, with an ultra-smooth plexigloss finish in 8 intense shades. Non-sticky, extreme colour coverage. Glides on easily for super-slick lips with perfect colour clarity. Conditioning formula keeps lips feeling soft. A definite head-turner.

The lip colors come in the same kind of packaging very like their matte mousse range.If you have not read that review you can check it out HERE The tube is slim and can stand on its own and will look great on your dressing table.The wand is silver in color and has 'The One' logo on it which looks luxurious yet cute. Coming to the wand it is flat which makes application easy on the centre of the lips but a little difficult in the corners of the mouth. Overall packaging is cute and decent and also travel friendly in my opinion.

Now let me take you through the 7 shades from their range:
Tangerine Tango is a light orange hue with a hint of peach to it. 

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in TANGERINE TANGO

Sunset Burst is a beautiful red with pink undertones to it. 

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in SUNSET BURST

Hot Flamingo is a beautiful everyday baby pink color

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in HOT FLAMINGO

Malibu Blush is a beautiful coral color which is pink mixed with orange

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in MALIBU BLUSH

Pink Mambo is a beautiful deep pink raspberry color

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in PINK MAMBO

Magnetic Magenta is a magenta color like it says. It is light pink color with blue undertones which we say purple pink

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in MAGNETIC MAGENTA

Purple Rumba is a stunning purple/aubergine hue in my opinion.

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel in PURPLE RUMBA

My review and thoughts:
These lip colors are certainly liquid lip colors as they claim but these are not matte which you may be used to and which are in trend right now. So over the years I have tried many lip glosses and they have all failed in the pigmentation department. Glosses which claimed to have good pigmentation have also failed.

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel Review & Swatches (same order as mentioned above)

So would I say the same about these?? Well absolutely not. Firstly the pigmentation is really good for a liquid lip color which does not have a matte formula.I could not find any glitter or shimmer in it which is another plus point in my opinion.It has an amazing fluid and light weight texture in my opinion. It spreads easily on the lips and the texture and formula is very smooth and moisturizing, you need to wear it to know what I am saying.It has a faint smell which is not bothersome in my opinion.

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel Review & Swatches

You would need to apply 2 coats if you have pigmented lips like mine also you need to be careful as it may tend to go outside the lips if applied incorrectly. All the colors are bright and beautiful and have a gorgeous finish to them, very apt for summers.The longevity is not that much because it is a glossy formula and may tend to easy wipe off once you eat or drink something..Overall I think  The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel is a must try for the shade selection, formula and the way it performs.If you ignore the longevity it is an amazing product in my opinion ☺☺

MLWM Rating: 4.4/5

Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel  come in 7 exciting shades which have an amazing fluid texture and gorgeous finish. A must try in my opinion.

So what do you think of the The ONE Lip Sensation Vinyl Gel?? Have you tried it? Do let me know in the comments section.

Until next time.. Take care xoxo

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer Rreview

Hello everyone,
Today I shall be reviewing Oriflame The One  Illuskin Face Primer which I have had with me since a long time and wanted to review on my blog.Makeup primers are a must if you want a smooth base for you foundation/BB cream and if you want it to last as well.I was an alien to the concept of primer until I became a beauty blogger to be honest. So anyway if you wish to know more about this product and my thoughts on it then please keep on reading...

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer Rreview

Price:  Rs.649/- for 30 ml  Available online HERE


Description by the brand:
Create the perfect canvas for makeup with this tone-enhancing face primer. Evens out skin tone, extends the wear of your foundation and minimizes the appearance of pores*. With HaloLight Technology™ for a subtle healthy glow.

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer Rreview

The primer comes in a white and purple opaque tube which has a screw cap to it. There is basic information printed on it. I wish they had a flip cap to be honest. Also there is a chance of the product accumulating on the surface of where the product comes off. It is still travel and user friendly I feel.

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer Rreview

Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer Rreview

The primer is white in color and has a cream like consistency. It does have fragrance to it which is ok in my opinion. As I said before primers need to be applied before makeup to build a smooth canvas, fill pores and provide tackiness for the base product to adhere to the skin. The primer acts as a barrier between the skin and the foundation. It sounds more like a moisturizer kind of formula in my opinion. Post application of primer and foundation you will get a dewy and healthy glow which I like but not really because this primer is meant for normal to dry skin and I do have oily to combination skin.It does help the makeup to stay longer on the face but my nose and T zone get very oily hence I have to use a powder. Personally I would use this in winters as it is quite emollient for my oily skin. It does not minimize the appearance of pores or fills them. So I can easily conclude that this one is meant for dry and normal and not oily skin like mine.If you have dry skin you can go for this one.

MLWM Rating: 4/5

So have you tried Oriflame The ONE IlluSkin Face Primer before? Do let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

Until next time..Take care xoxo

Svayam Natural Almond - Oat Face Scrub Review

Hello everyone,
I am back again with a review of Svayam Natural Almond - Oat Face Scrub. If you follow me regularly you would know that I have been reviewing their products lately. I have been impressed with what I have tried so far and today I shall be sharing a review of another face scrub which I am actually in love with. To know more about my experience, please keep on reading...

Svayam Natural Almond - Oat Face Scrub Review

Svayam Natural Almond - Oat Face Scrub Review

The scrub really surprised me by how good it was.Firstly the ingredients are amazing and noteworthy.They make the perfect natural exfoliant in my opinion. My skin has been behaving problematic in last 2 months and I have had a bout of acne.Like before I do not experiment with skin care but I was impressed by the product line hence thought to give it a go. I use it with rose water and scrub my face in upward direction. The scrub was gritty enough but not abrasive which is a big yay!  and post use I was amazed by how clean my face got. Post use I never had any breakouts which is a big thumbs up. It rejuvenates the skin for sure but cannot say about tanning and pigmentation for the sample size I have tried. Also I don't get  tanned easily so can't comment about the same. I think this scrub is one of the best I have tried.Now that it is summer and everyone's faces tanning issues, this all natural face scrub would be a good investment.I highly recommend this to everyone.

MLWM Rating: 4.5/5

If you have been following my blog you would know about Matrikas who make some of the best journals, diaries and planners, you can read that post HERE So this time Matrikas has done something amazing and have come up with The Creative Woman's Journal which they claim  is for the creative woman, who uses the diary to write her dreams, and escape to a different place, albeit for a short while.

I chosen the one which says " TO FLY".Well  I could have opted for to write because that is what I do but I know I am a person who wants to Fly to new heights with my writing and now my Youtube channel.

So what does this Journal contain? They have 8 colouring adult sheets made of delightful and detailed elements inspired by nature. The concept of adult colouring books is new to me.I did see some people buying those and wanted one but now I do have one so I am looking forward to unwinding with it in my free time. They also have quirky stickers as pictured below which makes writing and remembering things fun.It also comes with a pen holder and a pocket behind.

As a blogger I have 10 thousand things to do in a day and I wanted a planner but not just anyone. I was delighted when I received it, all thanks to the Matrikas team for a lovely campaign like this for women who dare to dream, write, fly and glide.The journals are of good quality and makes a great companion for my blog posts planning and life in general.The one I received has a black cover with golden dots on it and a dragon fly imprinted on it in gold very reminiscent of the theme - 'TO FLY'

Svayam Natural Bath Oil with Sesame, Jasmine & Rosemary Review

Hi everyone,
It has been a while I have reviewed any Bath and Body product so here I am to review Svayam Natural Bath Oil with Sesame, Jasmine & Rosemary.Not so long ago I had reviewed their Apricot Scrub you can check that review as well on my blog. So summers have been full swing in India and also that affects our mood to be honest.Pampering oneself is a way of de stressing and for me it is a lovely bath of course. Since most of us  don't have a bathtub in India we prefer using a bucket and tumbler for taking a bath.So today I will tell you my experience of trying this product and how to use it.. Read on to know more....

Svayam Natural Bath Oil with Sesame, Jasmine & Rosemary Review

Price: Rs.375/- for 100 ml.Available at every online portal, you can buy it on discount here

Uage as per brand:
Gently massage in slow circular motion during bath. Avoid contact with eyes. In case of accidental contact, rinse with warm water. Can be used as a pre-bath massage oil also.

Svayam Natural Bath Oil with Sesame, Jasmine & Rosemary Review

I received a sample size product which was a tiny glass bottle with a screw lid.The oil is yellow and fragrant and contains strands of rosemary in it. Overall simple packaging.

So coming to the product you can use it two ways - Add few drops in a bucket of water for bath or use it as an after bath oil. In both cases I would say it was effective and I loved the aroma. It is supposed to be used at evening for deep relaxation and that is when you are finished with day's work and would want to relax. If you apply after bath the smell is long lasting and pleasant.Also it makes your skin soft and supple. The bath oil is of good quality and is a must try in my opinion to de - stress and relax at the end of the day.

MLWM Rating:4.4/5

I you love the scent of jasmine and rosemary this is a must try bath oil.It does make the skin soft and supple and keeps you feeling fresh.So guys what do you think of this bath oil? Do let me know in the comments section.

Maggi Masalas of India Limited Edition Noodles 2017 - 4 Flavours (New launch)

Hi everyone,
Today's post is going to be something different, something I have never done before and it is related to food. After so many years of blogging I thought why not share my views on food products I love. So unlike every other Indian I love Maggi Noodles and may be noodles of any kind because I am a huge noodles lover. After all the drama of Maggi containing lead it was taken off the shelves and then it came back again - a big sigh of relief to Maggi lovers like us. So since they came back they introduced new flavours which were the spicy edition which can be hit or miss if you don't like spicy food like me.

Maggi Masalas of India Limited Edition Noodles, 2017 - 4 Flavours

So anyway I got to know that Maggi launched - Maggi Masalas of India Limited Edition Noodles and there 4 are limited edition flavours representing different cuisines of India.So I immediately bought all 4 of them from my local shop.Read on to know more about them..

Price of each: Rs.20/- for 73g product
Availability:Available across all local stores and groceries in India.

Amritsari Achari Masala Noodles
It is supposed to be flavoured with pickle spices for a tangy Achari experience. The images shows spices like coriander,cumin, kalonji and red chilli.

Bengali Jhaal Masala Noodles
It claims to contain Panch Phoran which is a mix of 5 different spices found in every Bengali's kitchen. The image on the cover shows spices like kalonji,cumin,fenugreek,mustard seeds and aniseed - all 5 spices which together is called Panch Phoran.

Maggi Masalas of India Bengali Jhaal Masala Noodles

Mumbaiya Chatak Masala Noodles
It claims to contain a twist of zesty,piquant spices inspired by Mumbaiya food.The cover image depicts spices like cloves, kasuri methi, star anise, cinnamon.Being a Mumbaikar I would say food in Mumbai is an adaptation of different flavours from different cuisines of India.Garam masala plays an important role in our cuisine. If you have eaten Mumbai Pav Bhaji you would know what I am saying.

Maggi Masalas of India Mumbaiya Chatak Masala Noodles

Super Chennai Masala Noodles
Topped with signature herbs and spices for a truly Chennai twist.The cover image depicts tamarind, sambhar powder, mustard seeds and curry leaves which are typical must have ingredients in food from Chennai and any South Indian cuisine.

Maggi Masalas of India Super Chennai Masala Noodles

What makes these noodles different from the regular ones is that the noodles are made of wheat flour also all 4 flavours are vegetarian.Honestly I find it a bit disappointing because I am a non vegetarian but from a company and sales perspective they are playing safe and I understand why. Also these are limited edition like I mentioned but I have not tried these but I am surely going to and either review them here or on my social media like Instagram, please stay tuned for the same and follow me on my social media linked below.

So have you heard or tried these flavours yet? Do let me know in the comments section, I am eager to hear your thoughts ☺Also would you like me to talk about more food products on the blog, do let me know as well in the comments section.
