Update: Makeup Revolution launches store in Mumbai. A Hilarious account of the opening.

Makeup Revolution London has been this underrated brand that has quietly snuck up on us. We were sitting here gathering money by selling our kidneys to buy makeup and suddenly, this new kid on the block comes around. It was cheaper. Much , much cheaper and had very good products. Well, atleast some of them were very good products.  Their blush palette in Golden Sugar ? OMG. I gush about it here: https://damselindestress.in/2016/05/02/product-review-makeup-revolution-london-ultra-blush-palette-in-golden-sugar/ So when I got a message on Tuesday about them opening up a physical store, I lost my marbles. I was like, yeah baby, bring it on. I got a message about how they were inviting me to the exclusive launch of their flagship store. I was excited. I replied to that message saying I was in and that I would want to take videos and pictures and all that. When there was silence from the other end, I called the number and made conversation about me wanting to be there. A sleepy lady told me ,’Great, she would see me there’ and …

Product Review: Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour

I have been a fan of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams for a while now. When I say a fan, it basically means that I have been hoarding them and have a lot of them. Some of them I am on my second tube and some I have scooped so deeply, I am afraid my applicator will come out of the other side. You know the other side- the one where Adele is. That was a terrible joke. So, anyway, Lakme introduced a new line of matte mousse lip and cheek colours and it’s very, very, in fact suspiciously similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. I am not going to justify my saying it’s suspicious and just leave it there for you to think over and wonder. Leave it, it’s nothing. So I bought a two shades from the Lakme range- Coffee Lite and Tangerine Fluff- and here’s my review. Lakme 9 t 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour Feel: It comes in a tube that gives up nothing. So if …

This Rs.200 Product is Everything for Cleaning Makeup Brushes

Cleaning makeup brushes is no fun. Cleaning anything is no fun , I think. Except your nose maybe. That’s interesting. Mainly because even though you know what’s going to be there, it’s still a bunch of fun to dig away. That’s just gross. The thought. We were talking about cleaning makeup brushes people. How did I end up discussing nose stuff? Anyway, I was dilly-dallying on Amazon. in as usual, putting stuff into my cart and never really placing the order when I stumbled upon this little genius. You those massive Sigma mats that cost you a fortune and really in that much money, you would rather buy a new makeup product than clean it? Yeah, that one. Yeah, that’s for about Rs.3000. So, that’s not a good idea. Atleast for me. Then, I saw this. This thing called the brush egg. It sounds like something to give an egg a thorough cleanse but it’s not. It’s a makeup cleaning device that you slip on two of your fingers and give your brushes a good, …
