Here are some beauty updates from Maybelline, Revlon, RevAyur, Tips and Toes etc in Bangalore. These were spotted on my recent visits to Health n Glow and Empire Stores.
Maybelline Dream Glow Bronzer
A creamy and shimmery bronzer. This little tube stood on a shelf behind the billing counter. Spotted it as I was leaving the store. When asked, the SA told me that it was a new “Foundation” from Maybelline and how could I leave without swatching it?? And she was more than happy to help. She took a little from the tube and blended it on my hand..It was quite smooth and blended well and gave a very shimmery bronze effect.With a major shock, I realised that it was a bronzer and not a foundation.When I told her that, she agreed..LOL
There was only one shade available in the store and the staff were ignorant about any other shades or variations 😦
Price – Approximately INR 460
Revlon Beyond Natural Skin Matching Makeup
I generally don’t check out Revlon for foundations, but somehow this tube caught my fancy and I wanted to give it a try. The product is somewhat medium thick liquid, which is whitish in colour, infused with very very minute brownish bead like particles. Once you apply it on face/hand and blend it, the minute particles blend in with the whitish cream and becomes evenly coloured foundation. Again there were just 2 shades in testers and I picked the darkest of them. But I am glad to say that it matched my skin tone well.The price is as usual weird like any other Revlon product.
Price – INR 960

Remember the Rev Ayur Orange Exfoliating Scrub I had reviewed a while back? At that time, their products were not available in Bangalore. But now they are available here in Empire Stores in Commercial street. And guess what I am drooling at from their range??
Cute little lip balm tins with slide open lids 🙂 They are available in 5 yummy flavours – Cherry-Vanilla, Lemon-Vanilla, Orange-Vanilla, Grape-Vanilla,Berry-Vanilla. I smelled each and every one of them and found the smell so lovely and absolutely not artificial or obnoxious.
Empire Stores also has a counter for NYX cosmetics, but the stock is very poor compared to the one in Hypercity. The SA’s are quite helpful and many a times much better than the ones at Health and Glow.
