Loreal Micellar Water vs Maybelline Micellar Water | Now in India

Hey Dolls

This is an image of Loreal Micellar Water vs Maybelline Micellar Water : India review


Micellar waters have been all the rage in the beauty industry for a few years now. Ever since Bioderma released its micellar water, several other brands have come up with their own versions of the micellar water. 

So what exactly is micellar water? 

According to dermatologists, Micellar water is basically water that consists of molecules known as micelles which attracts dirt and oils helping to cleanse the skin while being extra gentle. It is therefore a great alternative for a foaming face wash which can be pretty harsh and drying to the skin. Micellar waters need no rinsing and generally have hydrating properties in them.

I personally love micellar waters especially on lazy days when I don’t want to go through the whole CTM routine and they also come really handy while travelling.

Jumping on to the bandwagon, Maybelline and Loreal have come up with their own Micellar waters as well and these are now available here in India. And since both of these are my all time favourite drugstore brands, I had to give them a go. So in today’s post I will be doing a review and comparison of both these micellar waters.

Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color Swatches & Review


Hey Dolls

Lakme has been on a roll lately with so many new launches. Today I have swatches and review of their latest Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color range which has real argan oil in it. Argan oil is well known for being an excellent source of moisture, hydration and for having hair and skin healing properties in it.
There are a total of 15 shades in this range and they retail for Rs 750/- each.
Today I have 5 shades from the range to share with you namely 01 Ruby Velvet, 05 Dewy Orange, 
08 Drenched Red, 14 Lush Rush and 15 Soft Nude.

As you can see, these lipsticks come in a beautiful, expensive looking gold packaging. The lid actually clicks to ensure it is fully secure making it handbag and travel friendly. These lippies have a really nice vanilla ice cream scent to it that every time I open it I get super tempted to bite it!

Texture wise these lipsticks are very creamy and moisturising while some shades have a somewhat silicony feel. They have a slightly glossy finish when freshly applied but with time they set to a satin finish. Since these are creamy they transfer quite a bit but they definitely do not bleed. 

Eating/drinking can cause it to transfer hence it starts fading from the inner rim of the lips. Without eating/drinking it lasts on my lips for 4+ hours and they also leave a stain on the lips which is always a good thing.

Maybelline Super BB Cushion Review | Now in India


Hey Dolls!

With all the rage over Korean cushion foundations, I was more than glad to find that Maybelline's Super BB Cushion had launched here in India. It contains 14gm of product and is priced at Rs 1200 which imo is a bit too steep for a drugstore brand like Maybelline!

A cushion foundation comes in a compact form and generally has skincare properties in it. It consists of a sponge soaked with the actual product itself, and a super soft anti-bacterial / anti-microbial cushion applicator which is supposedly designed to deliver little product per dab, allowing the foundation to apply sheerly without getting cakey. Korean beauty is all about sheer natural finish.

The Maybelline Super BB Cushion comes housed in this bronze cardboard box with instructions on how to use it given at the back. Unfortunately the shades in this product is extremely limited. In some Asian countries they come in 3 shades, and in India they only come in 2 shades! 02 Light and 03 Natural which is the one I opted for.

I absolutely love the compact packaging which has a beautiful rich bronze color that looks very classy inspite of being a plastic case. There is a pretty good quality mirror inside. The first layer contains the cushion applicator which is extremely soft, and the second layer contains a huge sponge that is literally soaked with the BB cream.

Hey Dolls!

Sugar Cosmetics is on roll when it comes to lipsticks! They do one of the best lipstick shades as far as Indian makeup brands. I somehow find most of their shades suit different skin tones and colors. 
With liquid lipsticks being such a thing today, I wasnt very surprised when Sugar came up with the Smudge Me Not range and I must say I have been pretty impressed with their shade selection (although I do wish they had some browns thrown in)
