The Review:

When I first applied L’oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence SPF 30 PA+++ Sunscreen Gel on my face, it felt so light and so non-greasy unlike other heavy creams.
Also noticed, It didn’t have any fragrance.
Since, it was a gel, I was expecting it to be transparent.
But to my surprise, it was a white colored perfect consistency and blends effortlessly.
The packaging is very compact and travel friendly.
Cap shuts tight, preventing any leakage.

If you have combination skin like me, or even an oilier one, you’ll fall in love with the L’oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence SPF 30 PA+++ Sunscreen Gel.
It’s the perfect sun protection we’ve all been waiting for.
Doesn’t cause the face to sweat unlike other sunscreens.
And is my favorite for short duration sun protection.
Even though its claims to have 12 hour sun protection, I noticed my face getting tanned after prolonged exposure to the sun.
However, I can safely say from experience, that it didn’t cause any tanning for about an hour.
For longer durations, I prefer Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+
L’oreal also has an SPF 50 variant in the same range.
So you can go for that one, if you’re looking for a higher protection.
Best part about the L’oreal Sunscreen is that it blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
It doesn’t only protect against tanning, but also prevents other signs of sun damage like aging, free radicals, etc.
Now, My skin is extremely prone to clogging pores & breakouts, with any cream that I put on my face.
But thankfully with L’oreal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence Gel, I didn’t experience any such things.
There are very less beauty products that actually work for me, so this one definitely gets a thumps up from me.

Cons:

The 12 hours protection claim is a bit too overrated.

Beauty Gyaan (BG) Rating: A+

Tips & Toes D-Fine Eyeliner Review

Today’s review is on the Tips & Toes D-Fine Eyeliner. Most Indian women including me prefer gel eye liners. but every once in a while, I like to use a liquid liner. It is a black liquid eyeliner which comes with a tiny brush attached to the cap. Tips & Toes D-Fine Eyeliner is very similar to the Avon simply pretty eye liner. Tips & Toes D-Fine Eyeliner is jet black and just one to two swipes is enough for a bold black look.

Tips & Toes D-Fine Eyeliner Review

When I first saw the brush, I didn’t think it could give a precise application.
But, Oh boy, I was so wrong.
The brush is made in such a way that it good for thin as well as thick lining.
I’ve also used to line under my eyes and it works well there too.
Although, I do wish it came with a sponge tip applicator like the Loreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss instead of a brush type applicator
Tips & Toes D-Fine Eyeliner is water-resistant.
So, if I’m washing my face and not rubbing my eyes, the liner stays well intact.
Full points for that.
Also, the liner takes at least 5 mins to dry completely.
The quantity in the bottle is 9ml, which is a lot for the price.
The eye liner does not flake or smudge easily.

What I think about L’oreal Paris Shine Caresse Wet Stains:
If you love lip stains, but hate dry lips that comes with it, behold let me introduce you to L’oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Stains.
I’m going to review 2 shades from this range – Eve 605 and Pretty Woman 900.
The shade Eve 605 is a pinkish shade with red undertones and is highly pigmented.
Whereas, the shade Pretty Woman 900 is a nude brownish shade, which may not be suitable for pigmented lips.

This is how L’oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip StainS looks on me after 2 swipes.

L’oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Stain Review

The staying power of the pink shade is greater than the nude one.
L’oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Stains look even better when applied over L’oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipsticks.
These are liquid lip stains that look glossy on your lips upon application.
Once the gloss fades away which is like after 5 hours, the stain still remains for another 2-3 hours.
Even after the gloss fades, you can top it up with a clear lip gloss or lip balm.
These are so glossy, that they never make my lips feel dry.
L’oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Stain looks like a lip gloss on my lips, but with better staying power.
The texture of this gloss is runny and non- sticky.
Also I feel the need to apply 2 coats, for the color to show up vibrantly.
The stain has an alcohol type fragrance, which doesnt really bother me.
The lip stain applicator is very similar to the Maybelline lip polishes, which allows precise application.
These stains comes in a metallic gold tube with a transparent mid section which shows the color.
Also L’oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Stain are a cheaper dupe for YSL Glossy Stains.
It Fades evenly and not in patches.

My Experience

I have been using Avon Strawberry Lip balm almost for five years. Simply, Because i never found any better tinted lip balm. When Nivea lip balms were launched, I saw my friend using the Cherry version, which looked quite pigmented.So I went ahead and bought the all the shades except dragonfruit.
Which im still hunting, but its not available anywhere.(Do let me know if you have any idea where to find it). Apart from Cherry, all the lip balms have very pleasant fragrance. The moisturising quality of Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm is not very good. It stays for about 2-3 hours without any meals. Nivea Fruity Shine Lip balms give food gloss on lips. Nothing that looks too loud. Best part about this Fruity shine rangeis that it has SPF 10 too. Coming to the shades, my review is based on my slightly pigmented lips.

Nivea Fruity Shine Pink Guava Lip Balm
Nivea Fruity Shine Pink Guava Lip Balm

Nivea Fruity Shine Pink Guava Lip Balm (Light Pink)

Pink guava gives a light pink tint, which looks very natural.
Guava tastes sweet and I like its fragrance the most, out of all.
However, it would suit non-pigmented lips and fair toned people more.
As, it doesn’t completely hide my pigmentation.

Nivea Fruity Shine Strawberry Lip Balm

Nivea Fruity Shine Strawberry Lip Balm (Red Tint)

Strawberry provides a reddish tint with a slight orangish undertone.

Nivea Fruity Shine Cherry Lip Balm (Dark Pink Tint)

Cherry, when applied on lips, looks dark pinkish.
I hate the fake fragrance, it has.
Actually i don’t particularly like the cherry smell in Avon lip balms as well.
