"Makeup is not a mask that covers up your beauty; it's a weapon that helps you express who you are from the inside."
No matter how much time you spend on your makeup, if you dont have the best products in your makeup kit, you cant really able to highlight the best features in you!
I am not a big makeup freak but I love collecting makeup products. The two essential things I make sure to have before I step out are: A super black KOHL & a Lipstick preferably neon pink shades. I love the confidence that makeup gives me. I have a beautiful kit gifted to me by my in-laws on my engagement. Penning down all the products that makes a perfect kit including all my makeup essentials I have been using so far.
Here are the essentials that can help you building your best & worthy makeup kit.
Maybelline New York's The Blushed NUDES Eye Pallet & Lakme 9 to 5 Tanjore Rush
Previously I had Lakme 9 to 5 Tanjore rush color pallet that has beautiful highly pigmented shades of olive green, purple, copper & gold. The colors left me with a confidence & an appreciation from people around. I brought it from Ebay online paying just 430 RS (MRP being 550).
Maybelline's this Eye pallet has the subtle colors that may otherwise not appear to be pigmented enough to get the attention of people around. It leaves a shimmery effect though. If I have to choose between the two, I would like to stick with the Lakme one.
Price: 875 INR (Maybelline) & 550 INR (Lakme)
Maybelline New York's Dream Satin Skin Face Powder
If you have a really oily skin then this loose face powder can do wonders on your face. Earlier I had Maybelline's Clear Glow All in One face powder but found it a little un-natural, whitish over face. Maybelline's Dream Satin skin have SPF 32 that protects you from harmful UV rays. Apart from this you gonna love its super classy packaging, the matte-beige metallic outer case & a mirror inside it.
Price: 600 INR
Maybelline New York's Volume Express Mascara Waterproof
This waterproof Mascara is all you need during these Monsoons! The super black color gonna coat your eyelashes giving them a perfect natural long curled look~ perfect to wear on parties or special functions! Maybelline's this mascara will eventually results in achieving high volume for your lashes. All you need to sweep the brush upwards from roots to tip. Though you will find it difficult to remove afterwards. That's when Maybelline has created its Total Clean Express Makeup Remover! Try it up! LOL
Price: 440 INR
Maybelline Colossal Kajal Super Black
I have used a lot many kohls from Lakme 9 to 5, Loreal to Faces Canada & Maybelline's colossal kajal. The one I am satisfied with is Faces Canada. Yes it is damn super blackish and can easily lasts for atleast 2 month. I purchased it from purplle online at a good discounts.
The problem I face with Colossal is its troublesome removal from eyes. May be this problem can now be skip since I have Maybelline's Total Clean. Also, the quantity is less and can only lasts for about 1 month if you are a regular user. This Super Black is a new edition to Maybelline's earlier yellow pen colossal kajal and I am really looking forward to try this.
If you really love wearing vibrant colors then these bright matte nail paints are a must try. I have 3 shades of them: Glitter Gold, Coral & Pink. I have been using them from the last 3 months and really surprised with their long lasting feature. The colors in this range are pigmented and requires just one to two strokes. The beautiful matte glass bottle & the medium soft bristles of applicator brush glides easily over your nails. What else? It dries up so quickly! So what are you waiting for? Rush to a store, buy your favourite color & start showcasing your beautiful hands wearing them up!
Price: 150 INR Each (6 mL)
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation (Shade 220 Beige)
For daily touch ups I use Lakme 9 to 5 all in one cream. But if you desire for a limelight in a party, choose Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation. Available in a whole bunch of shades, you can go for the shade matching your skin tone. I have Natural Beige Shade 220 which is unfortunately lighter than my face tone but still results in a super finish outcome after few seconds of application.
Price: 575 INR
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer (Shade Natural Beige 220)
This is a new addition to my makeup kit. All thanks to my in-laws who included this 'must to have' product into my engagement makeup kit. It is a very light non fragrant corrector that doesnot cake up at all. It Blends seamlessly to cover your under-eye circles, spots & other face imperfections. I am not a regular user but do try it occasionally in functions.
Price: 675 INR
Lipsticks- Maybelline, ColorBar, Diana of London, NOTE
Maybelline 14 Hr Super Stay Flash of Fuchsia
This is a recent addition to my makeup kit. It is created with a matte formula to remain intact on your lips for 14 hours. Well I personally find it difficult to apply since the texture of these lipsticks are too dry. Though able to survive drinks & food & remain intact for good amount of time, you will find it non hydrating. If you want to avoid frequent touchups, you can opt it!
Price: 650 INR
Color Bar Matte Touch Lipstick, Peach
It is almost same as the above, just a difference of color. It has a beautiful reddish-peachy undertones and suits pretty well the fair to medium skin tones. I purchased it from Purplle at a heavy discount.
Price: 413 INR
Maybelline New York Color Show Bright Matte Lipstick, Merry Fuschia
Well, this is my favourite one and I frequently use it whenever I step out for something happening. It is perfectly moisturized, hydrated, easy to apply & highly pigmented lipstick that remain on your lips for a good 3 to 4 hours. Unfortunately it cant survive heavy meals & drinks and you have to go for frequent touchups. The lipstick is very economical and to make your purchase even smarter, you can grab it online at heavy discounts! This is the second time I have purchased this shade and I am just falling for it!! Yeahhh! ;)
Price: 299 INR
Diana of London, 2000 Kisses
This is a gorgeous highly pigmented Berry-maroonish colored lip color which is super matte after application & gives metallic effects afterwards. If you are bold enough to try this beautiful bold color then this should definitely be in your makeup kit.
Price: 779 INR
Deborah Milano Face Highlighter/Contouring
The Deborah Milano Dual Contouring Palette has two different shades to contour your skin while highlighting the best features in you pretty well. It has a silky soft consistency that easily blends into skin and gives flawless results defining your nose, cheeks and jawline. Its Silky, soft consistency gives a natural finish to your overall looks. So if you are looking to accentuate and contour your face, then this product is a must addition to your makeup kit.
Price: 795 INR
Maybelline Color Show Blush Peach
I am not a blush lover though, yet when I got this beautiful tiny blusher from Maybelline & I couldn't resist trying it. The color seems a little peachish but actually has a pinkish hue to it. Just a few swabs on your cheek bones & you gonna start blushing...Yeah! This is a must have peach-pink-coral shade at this price tag!
Price: 300 INR
Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Remover
I have never found makeup remover as a need to be included in my make up kit but this makeup remover has really made me to think again. The remover has a balance of oil & alcohol that helps remove even the stubborn waterproof eye & lip color stains. The remover comes in a smart classy transparent bottle and capable of removing sparkle like particles as well.
Price: 325 INR
Maybelline Hyper Glossy Black Liner/ Lasting Drama Gel Liner
"Don't ask a girl with winged eyeliner why she's late"~
Well, Maybelline's this eyeliner will get you that perfect winged eye! LOL
This tiny little bottle has a super black solution that will literally add a charm defining your eyes perfectly. The liner is waterproof, has a quick dry feature and leave an unusual gloss after application. Before this liquid liner, I was using (and still) Maybelline lasting drama gel eyeliner that comes with a tiny container and a long soft bristle brush to apply. It is smudge-free, and stays intact without any hints of smudging even on a humid day. It is waterproof which means tears or rain can’t spoil your liner, but it can be easily removed with a cleanser or a makeup remover. I have the both- Hyperglossy Liquid & Lasting Drama Gel but if I got to choose from these two, I am gonna choose the latter one.
Price: 300 INR for Liquid Hyper Glossy one & 575 for Lasting Drama Gel one.
