August Hits and Misses

Another month goes by, so time for another Hits and Misses post. Here are my loves and not-my-loves of August.

HITS
1. POCKET MIRROR
Isn't this thing absolutely dazzling? My cousin gifted me this on my birthday a week back. A girl's makeup bag is incomplete without a pocket mirror. Though I had one, but not as intricate and beautiful as this. For months I have been drooling on Sigma's Heart Shaped Mirrors and now I can definitely find something new to drool on. I'd really consider it my best gift of this birthday.

2. SIGMA EYESHADOW PALETTE IN 'FLARE'

Sigma Eyeshadow Palettes are the new hype. And out of the three 'Flare' definitely gave me some awesome eyeshadows to play with. For a detailed review of this palette, click HERE. To see the look I created from 'Flare' click HERE.

3. ETUDE BLUSH IN NO.20
I have used this blush a lot this month. Since I have bought it (that would be last year) even the most expensive of blushes cannot compete with the colour it gives to my cheeks. This blush gives me the most radiant, shimmery, peachy glow. It is perfectly pigmented, easily buildable and blends smoothly. There is a slight fallout, but who cares, I so love the colour.

 4. BEAUTYUK SHATTER POLISH IN 'GOTH'
This is my first shatter polish. And yes, yes it is worth every penny. You need to get a hang of application to get a flawless shatter look, but it is not at all hard. After a few strokes I knew how to get a thin or thick shatter. To see how jazzy the black shatter looks on my nails click HERE. I plan on doing a detailed review on it soon.

MISSES
 5. W7 LIPGLOSS
02; that is what the shade is called. First, brands with no product names only numbers show their lack of creativity. I forgive Etude's blush above, because it is SO awesome. But this gloss, I don't even know why I bought it in the first place :S Don't be fooled by its colour, because it deposits none. I can't even use it as a transparent gloss because somehow it makes the other whatever colour lipstick pink. How weird -_- And the cherry on top is that the gloss keeps oozing out of the bottle making all its lipgloss neighbours sticky.

 6. LDM PARIS MOISTURE LIP GLOSS (01)
Another bad lipgloss purchase, but not as bad as the first one. The first time I used it I kind of liked it. This is a long wear lip gloss which dries on your lips for 24 hours stay. And yes it does stay on my lips even after I am done eating and drinking, but if I use it with any other lipgloss/lipstick it maybe disturbs the formula or something because the gloss comes off leaving my inner lips bare and outer lips lined. To avoid looking like a lipstick disaster I have to keep checking and reapply. And if I use it all alone it makes my lips look parched.

I hope this month's post again gives you some new things to buy and some to stay away from.

    I hate lip glosses that make their neighbors sticky and those that cannot work well with other lip products.

    1. Hi Iqra! I got it three years back from Al-fatah. This brand is not really popular, therefore not easily available online. If you are looking for an affordable long-lasting lip gloss stain you have better options in Catice, MUA & NYC. xx
