Essence Stay All Day 16 Hour Foundation





It’s been a long week! I was quite low in terms of health and had internals in my college. How are you guys? Hope you are faring well.

Recently I’ve been shopping online from Amazon a lot. I purchased a Roxy Backpack which I had to return because of its thin material which can definitely not bear burden of books. Link of the product-


I even ended up ordering my post graduation books from there. 



Today I shall be reviewing Essence Stay All Day 16 Hour Long Lasting Make-up. No points for guessing where I purchased it from (Amazon). Let me first clarify that this blog is not sponsored by Amazon; and all purchases done were from my own money. This foundation is so raved about, besides it’s quite cheap in comparison to other brands such as ‘Revlon’ which is why I bought this. I am not a big fan of foundations and I don’t really use them on daily basis. In face I’ve always ended up wiping most of the product even if I have an important event to attend. I don’t know why but foundations make me look so flawlessly weird which doesn’t gulp well with me. 



I don’t exactly remember dates but I guess I received the product within 2-3 days (standard delivery). It came in a cardboard box which was quite big in comparison to the product’s size. It was kept in with artificial air bags so that the product does not break while it is being delivered. This foundation comes in plastic pump nozzle bottle which is skin colored and has detailing written in brown. The shade that I ordered is- 10 soft beige. It retails at Rs 499 for 30 ml of the product.




MY EXPERIENCE:

The foundation has moderate consistency, neither is it too runny, nor too thick. It spreads easily and gets absorb into the skin within no time. It gives somewhat semi matte finish.
This product claims -
    ·      16 hours staying capacity
    ·      Light weight formula
    ·      Provides flawless complexion

Until now, after several usages, I’ve noticed that it really does fulfill all its claims. I applied this foundation at 7 am and it stayed intact till 5 pm. After that I washed my face because I remove my makeup as soon as I enter my house. Staying power is definitely commendable of this foundation.



Fortunately, this foundation didn’t block my pores or broke me out. I was quite happy that this foundation didn’t make me feel as if I had makeup on, thanks to its light weight formula. This foundation is definitely worth investing on.

P.S. If you scrutinize your eyes then you might see that this foundation has very minute sparkles in it!!

RATING: 5 out of 5.


Go grab it as soon as possible! ;-)

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 


Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
