Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (pearl)





Hello people,


I had been eyeing Revlon Lipsticks from quite some time, but being a student I don’t like to spend 500 bucks on a lipstick. I always look for alternative affordable options because firstly I haven’t started earning as of now and secondly there are so many affordable options available so why to burn a hole in the pocket. Perhaps once I start earning, I can indulge myself in buying fancy stuffs; I hope you know what I mean. This lipstick that I will be reviewing has been gifted to me by one of my relative as she knows how fond I am of makeup and I was truly excited to try this out.



430: Soft-silver Rose is a beautiful soft pink shade which has shimmers into it and these shimmers are visible even when I wiped off its swatches from my wrist while clicking pictures for blog. Basically, like a pearl, this lipstick gives somewhat a silver shade and provides slight duality in the lipstick color. The texture of the lipstick is soft like a lip balm; it does not settle into fine lines and application of it is quite smooth. There’s definitely no requirement of wearing a lip balm underneath, the lipstick on its own is very moisturizing. Although in the bullet the color appears quite pink but on lips, it gives more of shimmers and soft pinkish hue. Those of you, who look for soft pinks, would love this color. One swipe isn’t enough; I swiped it for three times to build up on the color intensity. Lastly, the staying power of it is not recommendable at all; maybe because it is the pearl finish variant and not a matte one. It so easily gets swiped off from the lips, leaving behind no traces of color but only shimmers. It would look gorgeous on fair to wheatish skin tone. 




When I first swatched this color, honestly I did not like it. Later after few days I tried it again and somehow it appealed to me. The color is slightly tricky to pull off, but it is apt for a dewy fresh spring look. On lips, the shimmers aren’t too prominent but still are apparent.


Swatches-




Overall, I’d say it will be best for day time looks or with bold smokey eye. For dried and chapped lipped ladies, this might provide adequate moisturization though. But if you don’t like shimmery lipsticks, stay away from this shade.


Price- $ 5.96 on Amazon.com

Until Next Time,

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…
