Be A Bombshell Eye Crayon in “High Roller”: Review, Price & Swatches.

Hello people,

Eyeshadows are really a hassle when it comes to you being offered less time for getting ready. Which is why, they aren’t really an everyday thing; until and unless you have a field wherein you gotta maintain your appearance and interact with a lot of people on an everyday basis. Alternative for easy eyeshadow application is an eyeshadow crayon. All you need to do is fill in those eyelids with color as if it’s your nostalgic childhood days when you used to fill in those empty spaces in fun filled crayon books!

So without delay, let’s get on with the review.


Ingredients: Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cerasin, Mineral Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Mica, Microcrystalline Wax, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, BHT. May contain: Titanium  Dioxide, Black Iron Oxide, Red Iron Oxide, Yellow Iron Oxide, Ultramarine Blue, FD&C Blue No. I Lake, Mangaese Violet.

Price: INR 1200

Net Weight: 2.5 grams

Where to Buy: You can buy yours from here.
Shade: ‘High Roller’ is an olive shade with finely grinded golden shimmers within.

Texture: The texture of this crayon is creamy soft. It glides on like lump of butter over hot paranthas! But it still manages to retain its actual shape.


Packaging: Be a Bombshell Eye Crayon comes in an all black cardboard covering which comprises of the ingredient list. It lacks a mention of the retail price due to which I had to search around for my Fab Bag card of the September month. The body of the crayon is matte to touch with a transparent plastic cap which closes well but at this price point, you do expect more than a mere flimsy lid. Thankfully, it comes in a twist up pen form, so you save yourself time as well as the actual product from being wasted while sharpening. Since it’s a crayon, the tip is kept blunt and you gotta be extra careful if you intend to line your upper lash line with it for a quick colored eyeliner look.

Experience:
I have really wanted to be a proud owner of an eyeshadow crayon. When I saw this as one of the option while booking my September 2016 Fab Bag, I looked aside the new launch of Sugar Cosmetics Mascara and chose this. I had high expectations! And the name of the shade says High Roller. But it is definitely a disappointment. The pigmentation is something which was greatly overlooked by the brand. On the eyelids, the color does not show up quite well. Even post many layers, it does not provide enough opacity. The color does move from one place to another in the process of application also. Do not think of smudging it because you’d end up with barely a light tint. It would perform a little better with an eyeshadow primer. I guess this crayon is meant to be used as an eyeshadow base for powdered eyeshadows to stick upon and give an intensified overall appearance. Itself as an eyeshadow crayon, it fails terribly! To be honest, I have a Incolor eyeliner in olive green color which is comparatively darker in shade and caters much more pigmentation; priced barely at 50 bucks! The longevity too is minute. It survives for approximately 2 hours and is not smudge-proof.


Swatches:

Verdict: You can skip upon this one for more affordable ones! Maybe I should try the Rimmel one instead.

Rating: 2.5 out 5

Until Next Time,

Take Care <3

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.…

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…

Bloggers Event: #PoutItRight with Jaquline USA's Lip Pops Matte Lip Tints

Hi Guys Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Last month, I was invited by the team of New U (Dabur subsidiary) on their launch of Lip Pop Matte Tints. I’ve been to their events before and previous one, I presume, was the release of their BB Stroke Nail Enamel.Now they have also incorporated some vibrant matte shades by the name ‘Back2School’. I must warn you to go visit their stores ASAP as this range has a gorgeous mint shade which I’ve never seen amongst affordable Indian brands! 



The event took place in Smoke House Deli at DLF Place Mall Saket (Delhi) in the afternoon. The place had an amazing decor with quirky walls and an interplay of white and grey theme running everywhere. With around 50 bloggers, we got to try out different shades of Lip Pops and nail lacquers that were recently launched in the New U store. I was so excited that I got rid of my texture nail paint then & there and tried the shades that were placed at the counter.
