NewU Nail Polish Review+Swatches
NewU is an online beauty store and retailers in India specializing in beauty products. They also have several outlets in different cities. Just like Health & Glow outlets, they have few counters as well. They also have Sally Hansen nail polishes here. None of the new collections are available in Sally Hansen 😦 They have the few of the Extreme Wear Range, complete Salon Manicure Range, couple of Sugar Coats and luster effect. At least that’s all that I have seen.
NewU polishes are their in-house brand. They have few different finishes and they also have some to-die-for glitter toppers. They had a BOGO offer and I bought four bottles. Read on more to find out how they fare 🙂
The ones that I bought were the less expensive one. They come in cute little bottles. No one ever finishes one entire bottle of nail polish so I think this quantity & packaging is appropriate.
The colors that I purchased are (L-R) Irish Coffee, Glitter,Stone Age, Antique White.
Irish Coffee- It is a beautiful coffee brown,which is a two coater. It is glossy even without a top coat. It looks like mannequin hands for Indian skin tones..or I’d like to believe! 😉
Glitter- This is a topper polish which kind of looks pearly in the bottle. It gives a great shift in color when applied over another one. You cannot get this opaque on its own. (Swatch Picture: Glitter layered over Irish Creme)
Stone Age- A matt black base with tons of silver shimmer in it. You can get away with one coat!
Antique White- It is a beautiful pastel yellow. The formula,is honestly not as good as the previous ones. It is patchy and streaky. It is a two coater creme. It is a little runny!
I really like these polishes! They have a good selection of colors which are not available in other brands! I am in love with them.
Color Essence Liquid Lip color Review
I feel like I haven’t done a product review in quite sometime. The last one that I did was ‘Mtv Muah by Blue heaven lip gloss‘. I wanted to review a couple of nail polishes today.. But oh,well.. This has been long overdue! I have another product review coming soon. Hopefully I will get it up before November ends because December is my ‘exam month’ and I won’t be able to blog the whole month 😦
Color Essence is another Indian drugstore brand. It is a little bit more expensive than Elle 18, but still it is pretty good 🙂
It is easily available on Ebay, Jabong, Nykaa, Amazon. But I haven’t seen them in stores nor have I seen any counter near me.

MTV MUAH by blue heaven lip Gloss Review
Last weekend, I was going though Jabong for any new,exciting offers for Diwali. While I ordered quite a few things, I also ordered two lip glosses. I had only one lip gloss which was a taupe shade with slight shimmer in it. While it is perfect for fall, I didn’t want to wear the same color everyday. Plus they had like 32% off on the website, so I thought of pampering myself with some lip gloss 😀
I wanted to try all the varieties of the MTV muah by blue heaven lip gloss but sadly I couldn’t find the colors that I liked. There is not point in hoarding lip glosses if you are never going to wear them right? I got these lip glosses on offer of 32% like I said.
Read on more to find out about it 🙂
It comes in a cardboard box with ‘MTV MUAH POP’ written on it. It comes in three variations- pop,punk and dazzle. The packaging is average. The top is made up of plastic. In saying that, I think these are very travel friendly.

Elle 18 Juciy Lip Balm Review
Its been a long time since I did a product review. I have quite a few product reviews coming up 🙂 I won this in some lucky draw thingy that was going on the Elle 18 facebook fan page. I have used more than a few elle 18 products.There’s no doubt that I was too excited to use this as well. I have reviewed elle 18’s “Foundation‘, ‘lip smoothie’ and ‘color pops-Shade No. 69‘. I am a lip-balm junkie as well. I can never have enough 😀 Getting this one, I was very very very excited to try them on 🙂
The shade is ‘Juciy Red’
It comes in a cardboard like packaging. It has the “Elle 18” pop art on the top right and the company name written on the left. Continue reading
[V] Power lasting Nail color
As most of you know, I have spoken about this brand in a previous post of mine. I do not want to ramble the same thing again 😀
The packaging, price, quantity is pretty much the same! The difference is the color and the pigmentation 😀
I have included all the pictures, but I am not going to tell the things which are common in this brand 🙂
This is what the bottle looks like. The color is very similar to ‘Elle 18 color pops-shade no.69′ to a normal person. But a nail polish junkie/hoarder can easily tell them apart! That is the beauty of a trained eye 😉 Continue reading
BONJOUR PARIS BUFFER BLOCK REVIEW
My old buffer block was totally gone and I had to find a new one, soon! Because my nails were so stained *sob sob* Desperate times calls for desperate measures. I immediately rushed off to a beauty supply store nearby and purchased the buffer block he had. Here are my thoughts:
As every other product, it was neatly packed. Continue reading
