Julep Maven April Box ~ picture,swatch & review

Hello girls...This month's theme was the VIVID Collection. The April julep maven box bought my attention with its pretty blushes. Though I'm not a blush person but still I'm always looking for blush that give the skin natural glow. For this reason, I was drawn to julep's blushes specially after reading that it defuses the appearance of pores and imperfections,while diamond powder gives cheeks a luminous glow.

Inside the box...

  • a blush
  • 2 nail paints
  • 2 candies as a bonus
First Look


Inside the box


Blush

Blush in Peach Bellini...
Julep says"this is a groundbreaking formula diffuses the appearance of pores and imperfections,while diamond powder gives cheeks a luminous glow" Peach bellini has a subtle shimmer in it but my camera didn't pick up properly,it is much prettier in person and less pinky. I'll review this blush soon.



Nail Paints

Nail Paints...

  • Caitlin ~ Julep described it as "shocking hibiscus with gold iridescent shimmer" It is a bright magenta shade with a hint of gold shimmer. I like how subtle is gold shimmer is,you can barely even see it. It is bright but still classic and it will go well with my Indian outfits.


  • Mariska ~ Julep described it as "Juicy tangerine with iridescent shimmer" It is a bright hot orange shade and went opaque in single coat. It dried with matte finish. I'm not sure if I can wear this nail paint.

So far I like my April box...

Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Concealer ~ review,picture and swatch

HELLO GIRLS…
                              Today I'm reviewing LANCĂ”ME effacernes waterproof concealer. It comes in a small sleek tube. It is available in 12 shades… AMAZING... which means most people can find good match. The formula is liquid and quite moisturizing and it is very pigmented too. This concealer is blend like a dream and a little amount of product goes a long way. Usually, I squeezed a small dot of the product and dot the product on my dark circle and few other problem areas. It gives medium to full coverage which is good enough for me.
