Big News!!!! Big Decision!!! A Step Forward!!!!!

Hello my dear viewers! I have a news for you. I have made some major changes which I should have done long ago but wasn’t sure about it!

Its been a year since i have started blogging. I was using wordpress as my base for blogging! I always wanted to get my own site, with my own domain but I didn’t know back then whether this is just as hobby or I’m serious about this stuff. But now that it has been a year I gave it a thought and made a decision to get my own site!!

So with the help of my friends, I have made my own site named  www.bthirteen.in .All my posts from the old blog have been transferred to the new blog and soon i will be deleting this blog. It will be really nice if you guys could have a look at my new site and show some love there!! this means alot to me.

Lakme CC cream vs *New* Lakme 9to5 CC cream

Hello guys!! Lakme came out with new improved** CC cream and I wanted to see what is “improved” in it.
I love the old cc cream and I’m using it since it was launched. It’s great for everyday use, light weight, medium coverage, conceals pretty much fine.

Claims for new Lakme 9to5 CC cream:
Instantly protects, Moisturises, Brightens, Evens Skin Tone, Conceals and freshens.

Well the claims are exactly the same as the old one except by the 9to5 tag which makes it more long lasting than the previous one.

Packaging:
The new packaging is hands down better than the previous one, love the rose gold theme of all 9to5 products.

Formulation:
There isn’t much difference in formulation between the both except the consistency of previous one is a bit watery and the new one is a little thicker and stickier which I don’t like. If you don’t set it with good amount of powder you will look like a grease ball.

LHS- old one RHS- new one

By mistake I got the shade beige instead of bronze which I thought would be lighter but because it is a cc cream it doesn’t look cakey or whitish on skin. After applying it blends into the skin and doesn’t feel you have applied anything even when it’s a lill light for me.

Longevity:
I wanted to take the 9to5 test so I wore it the whole day to college to see it lasts the whole day. After a whole day of lectures and tiresome practicals I was really surprised when I saw my self in the mirror. I was looking like I had a bath in oil. My face was so greasy and so oily that I was looking terrible, it never happens to me when I wear original one. I was really disappointed.

Pros:
1. Greater SPF.
2. Great for dry skin.
3. Affordable, easily available.
4. Good coverage and stands by all its claim.

Cons:
1. Not at all 9to5 product.
2. Not good for oily skin.
3. Sticky consistency.
4. Cakes of into patches and creases in fine lines.

So if you are looking for a good cc cream go for it if you have normal to dry skin to get a nice glowy dewy look but if you are oily skinned like me go for original one ( though that too is a bit oily but doesn’t cakes or creases like new one). And make sure pack it with powder.

Me now Longlasting lipgloss generation 2 review

DSC_0470.JPG

Hello Beauties!!! Like I promised in the last blog, I got more shades and Im reviewing them for you once again. Well the thing is after I bought the shade 22 I wanted try more so i got it of amazon.in . There were 2 sets of six S1 and S2, I went with S2 because looking at the pictures it looked it had more nudes. Well I was really disappointed by colours , it consists of pinks reds and maroon and most surprisingly it also contained shade 22. they also gave me two same shades 29 from which one i havent opened yet.

 

Shades given:

21: light pink

29: bright pink

22: purple

09: orange red

32: maroon

REVIEW:

Honestly, i hate it… i dont like the colors. They are super drying, Sticky. When you apply second layer it just goes everywhere. Pain in the ass to remove. If you top it with a lipbalm or a lipgloss it looks better. it sets into the creases, cracks of. Well for me it was waste of money but it was set of 6 for 599/- so its no heart breaking.

Will i try more shades? never.

The shades I like from them are 22 and 21.

 

 

 

Me Now Longlasting Lipgloss

Cheapest dupe for Kylie’s Kourt K

Snapchat-4462739464005059502[1]

Hello Everyone!!! I’m back with something so interesting that you would love… Well recently i had a trip to Mumbai and i was street shopping some stuff at Crawford market and there i saw a small shop of beauty and skincare stuff and i couldn’t help myself entering the shop to have look at what they had in stock (I was actually looking for miss Claire products ) and then i found this me now lippies… actually it was the packaging that drew me to it, especially this color. It said lip gloss but when the salesman swatched it on the back of my hand I was like I need it at any cost. I asked the price and he was like 100/-!! YEA!!! it was just for 100 bucks and I was sure I’m buying it. It’s the only shade I got because others were fuchsias and magenta and I’m not a person who wears a lot of pinks.

WARNING: IF YOU ARE PERSON WITH DRY LIPS I SUGGEST YOU DON’T READ THE REST OF THE REVIEW.

Packaging

Shade 22
I bought it because of the color but later i realized it was a dupe for Kourt K from kylies lip kit and i was so happy when I realized that. The packaging is really pretty. It is extremely pigmented and extremely matte. When you first apply it, it feels kinda sticky but after drying the stickyness goes away. The wand and applicator are Okay, personally I would love if the length of the holder of the wand would be slighly increased for better hold and application. It is extremely drying, so i would suggest you exfoliate before applying (wont have issues if you have normal lips). it settles into the lines and cracks a little bit after drying. It claims to be 24 hours longlasting lipgloss which i absolutely agree but no one wears it for that long. It is waterproof and transfer proof. It will fade a little from middle after a greasy meal, there is also chances of product flaking out. It wont come off unlesss you use a oil based makeup remover or oil instead. It is really tough to remove and leaves a small pinkish tint which looks beautiful.

Pros:

  • Beautiful colour.
  • Dries completely matte.
  • Super longlasting, waterproof, transferproof.
  • Nice packaging, comes with pretty decent applicator.
  • Super Inexpensive.

Cons:

  • Very dry, not suitable for dry lips.
  • Cracks and may flake.
  • Sticky before it dries.

RATING: 3.5/5

I have ordered more colors from amazon and they may arive pretty soon, comment or like if you want so see review on those too. Have a great day.

 

 

The Birthday Blog…

DSC_0161.JPGHello dearies!!! Its been exactly 15 days from my blog post  Why I hate my Birthday, in which I said why I ain’t excited for my birthday. But here I am a day later sharing with you my birthday diary. TBH it was the best birthday I had in years… maybe it was because I didn’t expect too much. Here is my Birthday Fashion Diary…

DSC_0447.JPG

My outfit details:

Top: ONLY India

Jeans: Kraus Jeans

Bag: Local Store, Bandra Market (Shop name: Valentino)

I usually find something very dressy and elegant for my birthday but sadly I didn’t find something like that but when laid my  eyes on this top, I knew I needed this top. Its a beautiful navy blue loose top with white stars which is so adorable ( I find everything with stars adorable). It fits beautifully on the arms and the waist elsewhere its loose. It has a big round neck and can be wore off shoulder. I bought this light blue jeans to balance the top, it is a nice mid-waist slim fit jeans ( don’t mind my mobile peeking out). I wore plain black gladiators with it as I was going on a beach. I did a soft blue smokey eye with nude lips.

Umm yeah I spoiled my jeans…

This is a look you can where anytime, anywhere and will look awesome… Its more of a casual wear but I love it. Comment down below how do you like this look and share it with your friends.
