Creepy, Broken Doll Makeup Tutorial

When I was little my bhaiya used to tell me a story about a creepy, broken doll that haunted the people of the house at night, slowly pushing them in the mouth of death. Maybe she was possessed by the spirit of a deceased serial killer ;) 

So today I’ll be doing a makeup tutorial of a spooky broken doll...

Hahahahahahaha.. Let the game begin…

  • To create doll skin, you can use any light foundation or concealer as base. The lighter, the better. (well! Don’t follow this when doing your normal makeup). However, I didn't have any lighter than my actual shade foundation, so I went with Kryolan Aqua color in 03 mixed with a bit of Kroylan white aqua color. You can use any color like poster color, water color, oil paint..but make sure your skin is happy with it. Apply the desired color all over your face and neck. If you are using anything cream/oil based, don’t forget to set it with powder of the same color.
  • To create a chiseled out doll face contour your cheekbones, accentuating your apples. Blend downwards to create a really sunken look. You can use your regular contour powder to get the look.
  • Now take the similar color around your eyes to add a tired, exhausted look. This would be the diffusing color.
  • Create sharp, structured jaw line using the same contour color.
  • Go on your neck with the same color adding accentuating your collarbone and also on the hollows of your throat.
  • Now take a charcoal black and add depth under eyes and on the crease area.
  • Now for creepy looking eyes I applied black gel liner on the lid and lower lash line. When applying the gel liner, just make sure the application is sharp and clean, so when you close your eyes you eyes will look completely hollowed out.
  • Apply dark brown eye shadows on eyebrows extending a little bit on the outer corners. You can block your eyebrows and draw thin dolly eyebrows if you want.
  • Time to get cracked. To create the cracks I used gel liner and drew random cracks on cheeks and forehead. I suck at doing polished cracks. To do a missing part you can draw a small triangular portion and color it black.You can wear big, black contact lenses too.
  • To finish off the look I just applied the same charcoal black eye shadow on the inner portion of my lips.

So that’s it. I had so much fun creating this look. If you recreate, don’t forget to tag me. Stay cool.. Have fun :)

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color Passion Fruit Review, Swatches, LOTD

Hello everyone,
Today I am going to review Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Passion Fruit. This is a gift from my husband. I am a great fan of Bobbi Brown when it comes to makeup products and thus I was naturally elated to see this.

Bobbi Brown calls it "mistake-proof, no-mirror lipstick." Really? Let’s see if it really is so forgiving on us... ;)

Product Description:-
A lightweight formula for lips that delivers an effortless wash of color plus nourishing shine.

Price: -
2100 INR. (I am not sure if they have hiked the price.)

A glossy black bullet case with a cap that has the Bobbi Brown logo printed on it. Simple and chic. The outer box has all the important details mentioned.

Bobbi Brown describes the color as “a pink coral” and I cannot agree more. Very pretty and very summery; but it doesn’t mean you cannot wear this in winters. The shade goes well with both neutral and dramatic eyes.

Very soft and creamy. It glides smoothly on lips without tugging or pulling. It is super moisturising and imparts a nourishing shine. It is super wearable.

Color Payoff:-
It goes sheer on the first swatch, but can easily be layered to have a full coverage. Though it says sheer, but I was surprised to see beautiful coverage it provides.

Staying power:-
It stays for around 6+ hours without food in between. The shine however fades with time, but the color remains intact. With snacks in between, however, it won’t survive that long.

Summing up my LIKES and DISLIKES:-

What I LIKED about Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Passion Fruit :-
  • Scrumptious color.
  • Creamy and soft texture.
  • Glides beautifully.
  • Imparts a shine which doesn’t look tacky.
  • Moisturising.
  • Buildable shade.
  • Doesn't look weird or thick on the lips when you build it up.
  • Colour lasts much longer than many other sheer, creamy lipsticks I have used.
  • Classy packaging.
What I DIDN’T LIKE about Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Passion Fruit:-
  • Price. Ouch!

Final Thoughts:-
A pretty, wearable coral- pink color. If you like your lips with something more than just a regular, natural color, then this is a great color for you. It is also a great option for someone looking to ease themselves into the world of lipsticks. Creamy and smooth formula, provides the right amount of glossiness. Color payoff is much better and colour lasts much longer than many other sheer, creamy lipsticks I have used. So mistake-proof? To me yes. No-mirror lipstick? Yes, you can just swipe it off with ease without any worry of it bleeding or going overboard. 


Have you tried any lipstick from this range?

Step by Step Tutorial: Autumn Burnt Red-Yellow-Black Eye makeup.. !!

Hey everyone,

Today I am back with a tutorial of a look which even I wasn't too sure of; I mean, I was so confused about it. I started creating it after getting inspired from autumn maple leaves, but seeing the final look, “fire smoky eyes” is what came to my mind.
Go through the tutorial and decide yourself please.. Also suggest me a name for the look. I am still confused L


For this look I did eyes first; so that if there are fallout, I can easily clean it off. Apply eye primer (if needed). Now take a yellow eye shadow and apply on the crease area blending towards the brow.
The next is a red eye shadow which I have applied on the lid and blending towards the crease. Then taking a black eye shadow, I just applied on the upper lash line and blended the edges. Right below the lower lash line, apply black eye shadow and line the lower lash line with kohl.
Groom your brows. Finally apply coats of your favorite mascara. You can apply false lashes too.

Clean off any fallout. Start by prepping your skin. Apply a moisturizer and also don’t forget your sunscreen if you are going out in the sun. Apply dots of your favorite liquid foundation all over the face and blend with a wet sponge. This will give a dewy finish. Apply corrector and concealer under your eyes and on any discoloration on the face.

Apply a peachy blush on the cheeks and also your favorite highlighter on the high cheek bones and nose bridge. I skipped contour for this look.

Bold red lips. Line your lips with liner and apply red lipstick. I used NYX Liquid Suede cream lipstick in Kitten Heels. ( read the review HERE)

So that’s it. Let me know how did I do? And also help me decide a name for this look ;)

Thank you all so much for all the love you have been pouring. Love you all…

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Kitten Heels Review, Swatches, LOTD and FOTD

Hello ladies,

I am sure you have heard about NYX lip creams, you must have. NYX lip cream is tagged as NYX’s most fan favorite product. And this time, NYX has launched another range of lip creams called Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick. I have been a fan of NYX lip creams and so I thought I would give these a try too. NYX has opened their own pretty booth in Mumbai on October and I got this on my first visit there. Reason of choosing this shade- It says Kitten and screams Red.

NYX says:-
Doll up your lips in plush and vibrant colour! The latest NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick glides on and sets into a striking polished matte finish. This waterproof lippie is infused with avocado oil and Vitamin E.

Rs. 850.

A cylindrical bottle with black cap which has a long doe-foot applicator attached inside. The doe foot applicator is of decent quality and applies the product easily and evenly.

Shade:-A super gorgeous red, something very classic.

Texture and Finish:-
The texture is very soft, very creamy and glides on lips like a dream. But compared to other lip creams I have used, this one takes a little more time to get dry. It takes around 4-5 minutes to settle into the gorgeous and comfortable matte finish. The matte formula is non-drying; it neither settles into fine lines nor does it accentuate dry patches.

Color payoff and Staying power:-
Insanely pigmented; it goes gorgeously opaque in single swipe. It for around 6-7 hours on me with snacks and drinks in between, but it doesn’t survive full meal. You have to watch out for that and remember that you have to reapply thereafter.

Summing up my Likes and Dislikes:-

What I like about NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Kitten Heels:-
  • Gorgeous shade of red.
  • Soft, creamy texture.
  • Lightweight formula.
  • Non-sticky; non-gloppy.
  • Keep lips pillowy.
  • Glides beautifully.
  • Avacado oil, olive oil and glycerine keeps your lips hydrated for long.
  • It doesn't bleed even if you don't use a lip liner.
  • Insanely pigmented.
  • A little is needed to get the desired shade, so the product would last long.
  • It covers pigmented lips beautifully.
  • Good staying power.
  • Nice travel friendly packaging.
  • Available at NYX outlets and online.

What I don’t like about NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Kitten Heels:
  • Some may find the long wand applicator difficult to use.

Final Thoughts:-
A beautiful red liquid lipstick with a beautiful matte finish. Glides on smoothly, lightweight and sets with a soft, velvety look, absolutely love it. Looks so classy. It doesn’t dry out your lips like most of the matte liquid lipsticks. I am in love with the color and texture so much that I don’t mind reapplying it when it fades after eating. I want to try their other shades as well.


So have you tried any of NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks?

NYX Vivid Brights Eyeliner-Vivid Sapphire Review, Swatches and EOTD

Hello everyone,

How you all doing? Finally, after days, I have got some time to blog. I hate being busy with what I don’t like; I just hate not getting time for what I actually love.

Anyway, today I am here with a review of NYX Vivid Brights Eyeliner in Vivid Sapphire which I bought few weeks back. I am an eyeliner lover. You will hardly see me without eyeliner and kohl, though I feel like my ability to do my eyeliner the same on both eyes is reminiscent of lot of things in my life...close, but never quite right… ;)

So, let the review begin.… :D

NYX says:-


The product comes in a small and slender color coded bottle with a long black cap which has a brush applicator. The long cap enable in a firm hold, is easy to control and the thin brush puts color exactly where you want it and also helps to create the desired line thickness.


An absolutely stunning sapphire blue. It doesn’t have any shimmers (thank God!) and settles in a “to die for” matte finish. This color can bring edgy glam to any look.

Texture and Finish:- 

The texture is creamy and consistency is neither too thick nor runny, it’s just perfect. It dries in seconds settling into a completely matte finish, which I totally adore.

Pigmentation and Staying Power:-
Rich in color, it gives an opaque coverage in just one swipe. It is a truly long-lasting product that doesn't budge or smudge, crackle or chip, neither peel nor flake. Yes, it is water resistant too. But if you rub your eyes or rub the eyeliner with water even a little bit, this will definitely flake off.


What I liked about NYX Vivid Brights Eyeliner-Vivid Sapphire:-
  • Stunning color.
  • Rich matte finish.
  • Smooth texture.
  • Easy to apply.
  • Long applicator with ergonomic grip for a steady sweep.
  • Insanely pigmented.
  • Stays almost whole day, (if not rubbed).
  • Doesn’t smudge or smear.
  • Doesn’t chip or flake.
  • Sleek packaging.
  • Easily available at all NYX outlets and online too.

What I didn’t like about NYX Vivid Brights Eyeliner – Vivid Sapphire:-
  • The price. It hurts... Ouch!

Final Thoughts:-

I was pleasantly surprised with how bright it actually is. It’s a vivid blue, its matte, its waterproof, stays long, no smudge and no cracks. The long wand and brush allows me to achieve the perfect cat-eye flick, a graphic wing or even usual liner strokes. If you're looking for bright, bold, blue eyeliner, this is the one for you. Also NYX cosmetics offers several other shades to spice up your looks with color.

Kryolan is a brand that has never disappointed me. To me it is a brand that has an "experienced" vibe to it. Till now, every product that I have tried from this brand has made me happy.
So today I am going to review a pallet from this brand. It is DERMACOLOR CAMOUFLAGE CREME 12 COLORS PALETTE. Read to find out more about it.

Kryolan says:-
Dermacolor Camouflage Creme Palette with 12 colors is ideal for professional use. Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is an especially highly pigmented make-up which is designed to correct and cover skin disfigurements, discolorations and tattoos. It is especially suitable for face and neck. With proper use of the Dermacolor Camouflage System skin abnormalities can be easily corrected. Once Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is fixed using Fixing Powder and Fixing Spray it will be waterproof and protects the skin against damaging UV radiation. It could last even under extreme conditions like swimming, heat and physical strain. It is available in an extensive range of shades and those are intermixable which gives the make-up a natural appearance when applied correctly. Those palettes can be refilled individually by using Dermacolor Refills. ECARF certified.

Palette A
Palette B
Palette C
Palette Caribbean

The 12 colors come housed in a no fuss tin box. After you finish any shade you can easily refill individually by using Dermacolor refills.

There are 12 colors and you can mix and match to get your desired shade.

This is an all in one pallet. From using it as a foundation to correcting and concealing, from cream highlighting to contouring, you can do every possible “makeup” thing with this pallet.

Texture and Finish:-
All of them come in a creamy, smooth texture. But once in a while if you feel the consistency is stiff, just warm it up first on the back of your hand or mix it with a tiny drop of moisturizer. Prepping is very important when using these. The product will not spread or blend if you have dirty, non-moisturised skin. It settles into a matte finish and is waterproof.

These are heavily pigmented. They contain 38% pigment concentrate as opposed to 7% that others have. So a tiniest amount is needed. It can be build up easily so its advisable to go light at first, then build up if necessary. 

Staying Power:-
The creams need to be set with a powder, and once set properly, they don’t move easily. They are waterproof and stay 10+ hours on me. However, touch up with powder is necessary after few hours to avoid creasing.

  • Multi-purpose cream. 
  • Cover dark circles, pigmentation, scars, marks and any flaws like magic. They can cover up tattoos too.
  • Wide variety of shades to choose from.
  • Soft, creamy texture.
  • Settles into matte finish.
  • Waterproof.
  • Stays super long.
  • Heavily pigmented.
  • Only a tiny bit of amount is need, so the product will last for ages
  • no testing no animals. Yay!
  • Clinically tested.
  • Total value for money.
  • Can be refilled individually, easily.
  • Available at Kryolan stores worldwide. They are available at random cosmetic shops as well.

  • It is very easy to get overboard, cakey with these.

Final Thoughts:-
These are great for problem skin, oily skin, and normal skin and for everyone except excessively dry skin. They are good for all climates and environments too. The multi-purpose cream is great as foundation, corrector, concealer, cream highlighter, contour product. You name it, they can do it. :D
On my normal skin, it works great and I am totally happy with the results..
Used only Derma Pallet for base; as foundation, corrector, concealer highlighter and contour cream.


So have you tried any of Derma Camouflage cream? Let us know..

Coloressence High Pigment Matte Pencil- Seduction and Coral Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Hello my gorgeous ladies,

How are you all doing?

Many of you have been asking me the reason of my absence from the blogging world. Well, I have been super busy lately. New life in Mumbai is really fun, happening and yes, exhausting. I have to travel 6 hours each day and trust me, travelling in Mumbai suburban trains is absolutely tell-a-tale.
Anyway back to today’s post. I’ll be doing quick reviews of 2 Coloressence High Pigment Matte Pencils. They areSEDUCTIONand CORAL

Coloressence says:
Color your lips with this richly pigmented color stylist lip pencil that has long lasting formula containing anti-oxidants and vitamins. Having staying power of up to 12 hours. It keeps the lips hydrated and smooth.

450 INR for 3 
g/0.1 oz

They come in color-coded, twisted chubby lip pencil form. The cap shuts snugly and thus is travel-friendly. The pencil carries all the necessary product information.


Seduction:-  It is a super gorgeous and sultry red with prominent warm undertones. 

Coral:- A true shade of coral. Looks super pretty and is very wearable. It would suit a wide range of complexions without the fear of looking washed out.

Both of them have beautiful creamy texture and feel light on lips. The finish they render isn't exactly matte at first, but don’t get disappointed; wait for a while and you will have gorgeous matte finish which will not move throughout the day. They never feel drying on lips.

Both of them are well pigmented, especially “Seduction”, it is crazily pigmented. The staying power of seduction is 8+ hours. The color looks fresh and gorgeous even after hours and hours of application. It leaves a very strong tint behind. “Coral stayed on me for about 4 hours and left a pretty pink stain behind. But "
Coral" doesn't stay more than 2 hours on my friend. Strange, ehh..!!

Summing up my LIKES and DISLIKES:-

What I Liked about Coloressence High Pigment Matte Pencil in Seduction and Coral:-
  • Beautiful colors.
  • Soft and smooth texture.
  • Feather-light.
  • Glides well without tugging or pulling lips.
  • Settle in comfortable matte finish.
  • Don’t dry out lips.
  • Well pigmented.
  • Seduction stays really long.
  • Decent packaging.

What I Don’t Like about Coloressence High Pigment Matte Pencil in Seduction and Coral:-
  • Removing the stain of “Seduction” is a task.
  • "Coral" doesn't last that long.
  • Coral” looks patchy after the first meal.

I didn't expect much from Coloressence while trying these two; but I am truly happy with “Seduction”, it is worth the buy.

Ratings:-"Seduction" - 4/5
"Coral"- 3/5
