Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in "Hearts & Tarts"




Hey Guys!!
It’s been a while. Can’t help it, my exams are going on and would end next week. There are a lot of cosmetics that I have accumulated at the time of my sister’s wedding but got no time to review them. Hopefully a lot of exciting reviews would be coming up soon! ;)


I was looking online for a lipstick that would suit with traditional Indian clothing, encountered this lipstick, searched for its review and ordered it from Jabong. I was quite excited to receive this product, but somehow felt little disappointed when I opened the packaging. On internet, it seemed like a different shade and what I received was slightly darker for my taste. After I got over my initial disappointment (which roughly took a week), I swatched the color on my hand again and thought of ways to dilute the intensity of color. 






Heart and Tarts” is dark maroon shade lipstick which is matte in effect, yet moisturizing. In pictures, it does look red, I don’t know why, but the true color is one which is visible inside the tube of the lipstick bullet. So don’t get deceived like me (or blame me). It is a perfect fall and winter color but stay away from it if you aren’t into dark or bold lipsticks. What I really love is the staying power. The lipstick stays on for more than 6 hours, would lighten with meals but not completely get swiped off. The texture of the lipstick isn’t too smooth, but for a matte lipstick, you would still find it okay to work with.

[CAUTION- The color in this swatch is somehow not coming as dark as the lipstick really is. Color seen in pictures shown earlier in this blog is exactly how the color looks like.]


M.R.P. – Rs 299/-

RATING- 9.2 out of 10.

If you are looking out for ways to reduce the color intensity of a lipstick, then leave a comment down below, I’ll tell you what I did for the same.

Take Care :-)

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…

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask
So…
