MAX FACTOR MIRACLE CONTOURING PALETTE

Hiya my lovely people? How have you all been?

Can you imagine makeup before contouring? I certainly can’t, my round face definitely needs contouring to look more defined. And I am sure, there is no better way to define your features than contouring. I know you already know that, just saying 😛

I was very much excited about trying the Max factor Miracle contouring palette which I received in my Voxbox by Influenster. Read further to know what I think about this drugstore contour palette.

My experience with Max factor Miracle contouring palette

thebeautymascot/Max factor miracle contouring palette

The Max factor miracle contouring palette comes in a sleek, elegant and lightweight packaging. The packaging is perfect for travelling. This palette is refillable, now that’s thoughtful. The palette has a spectrum of 8 natural shades to contour, lift and highlight. This is a universal palette which suits all skin types and surprisingly, I have seen this work for almost all skin tones.

Love how pigmented the shades are.If you want, you can also build up the intensity to get the look you want. The best thing about the Miracle contouring palette is the formula. It has a creamy formula which is very easy to blend. Blends like a dream and looks so natural. Even if you are a beginner, this contour palette is taking you places. Because it is so easy to work with it. Quick and easy contouring it is. Being said that, I have found that the highlight shade doesn’t blend as well as the other shades, but it is still okay.

The shades are very pigmented especially the darker shades. But the intensity is buildable and the lighter shades might sometimes need layering. Even after layering the contour looks quite natural. So you have nothing to worry about when adding that extra layer.  It mimics the shadows in your face, so let’s pretend we have a more defined facial features.

You can use a brush or beauty blender to blend this. You can use even fingers as it blends really well. But I personally prefer using a brush because if you use a sponge you will need more product and the contour will be less visible.

The staying power is also quite good. So I don’t see why you must not be giving this palette a try. Since the Max factor miracle contouring palette is designed by makeup  artists I had high hopes and I must say, it somewhat stays to it’s claims.Um, well almost. Too good for a drugstore palette, I must say.

Overall

What I like:

  • Sleek and travel-friendly packaging.
  • Universal palette, so one palette and everyone in the family can share :P. Well, if you are okay with sharing.
  • Creamy, soft texture allows for quick and easy contouring.
  • Formula which is easily blendable and buildable.

What I don’t like:

  • Some shades does not blend that easily,  but still okay.

I think the Max factor miracle contouring palette is a great drugstore alternative if you are looking for a good contouring palette. Since it blends well and is quick and easy, this palette is perfect even if you are getting started with contouring. Honestly, I still love my Anastasia beverlyhills palette more. But compared to ABS, this one is easier to use.

INGLOT HD LIP TINT MATTE (SHADE 11) REVIEW

Hi everyone!

thebeautymascot/inglot hd lip tint

 

Lips without lipstick is like cake without frosting. I don’t remember from where I read the line, I agree its funny but how apt it is. Lipsticks are a girl’s true love and liquid lipsticks are so much in trend right now.So lets talk about one amazing liquid lipstick,  the inglot HD lip tint matte.

I don’t own much products from inglot. But after trying the lip tint I am totally in love with inglot and definitely trying more products from the brand. So good it is. Lets not waste time and start talking about the amazing HD lip tint matte.

 

thebeautymascot/inglot hd lip tint matte

Inglot says

HD Lip Tint Matte is a trendy lip product that will provide full coverage and a silky matte finish. The product ensures a long lasting effect, does not smudge and is transfer resistant. A handy little sponge makes the lip tint easy to apply, while intense colours will compliment any makeup or skin tone.

Available in 10 colours, ranging from subtle nudes to classic reds and darker statement shades.

All INGLOT’s HD products contain HD pigments. Ideal for everyday use, these products may also be used for filming in high definition, ensuring the makeup looks flawless even on a big screen.

My review of the inglot HD lip tint matte

The lip tint matte comes in a rectangular tube, transparent so the color is easily visible through it. I like the black cap of the tube, which gives a classy look to it.The sponge applicator that comes with the inglot HD lip tint matte is amazing as it is small, so perfect for precise application and a single swipe with it gives a beautiful coverage.

The shade I am reviewing today is shade 11 which is a cool pink shade something like a coral pink. They have 10 other colors available and I also have the shade 17, which is the nude in the set. The shade 11 as I said is a beautiful pink shade, perfect for spring (Yay! spring has finally showed up) and also for summer season. Once you apply the lip tint on your lips it takes just a few seconds to set, and when dried the liquid lipstick becomes non-sticky, which is great. It has a matte finish but does not dry up your lips at all! The pigmentation is brilliant, covers even pigmented lips. The best thing about the inglot HD lip tint is that it doesn’t transfer at all when set. Now when I tell you its matte and does not transfer, you might think it will dry out your lips, but believe me, its not, it is mildly moisturizing. Once set you don’t even know it’s there,so comfortable and light. And don’t worry about creasing or feathering!Liquid lipsticks are generally believed to be long lasting and this one is no exception. I have worn this one for 7 hours. In this 7 hours I had heavy meals, uncountable coffees (and all other things I normally do) and to my surprise, the color remained.

Another thing which impressed me is that the inglot HD lip tint matte is from their HD range which claims of containing HD pigments. I agree that it photographs really well.

The price of inglot HD lip tint matte is 110AED.

Available at inglot stores and online inglot  also at Amazon

Overall verdict

A lipstick that survives even the heaviest meal, which does not stain your coffee mug☕️ (and your man’s face?), which does not allow even the darkest lips to show through and you don’t have to sneakily check your mobile cam? or keep on asking some one if your lipstick is still on?. If you think such a lipstick does not exist, you have to try the Inglot HD lip tint matte because the inglot HD lip tint matte is all that you want in a lipstick.  I give it 5/5, highly recommended.

Are you familiar with the term “baking” or “cooking” your make up . If you follow a lot of makeup artists on instagram or any other social medias, you might definitely be aware of what baking or cooking of make up really is. You might already be doing the baking of make up( may be every day). Or you might have tried baking your make up atleast once because baking of make up is a huge trend now. No wonder as Kim Kardashian’s make up artist informed us he use the technique on her. Since no one can beat them at the contour game, we must believe it.

The idea of using baby powder for baking of make up struck me when I was writing my previous post 30 beauty hacks using baby products. But I didn’t want to write about it before trying it out. Now I have been using the baking technique using baby powder for a couple of times and I am extremely happy how it turned out to be. (more…)
