April फूल!

April फूल! BY PERKY POCKETS

Hola people! How is everyone beating the crazy summer heat? I have switched over to cotton in my wardrobe, and melons in my diet. It stuns me how cotton, being such a lightweight and a ‘simple’ fabric, can still transcend into a strong outfit with high impact. So, today’s post is all about a floral explosion with PERKY POCKETS where I’ve experimented with fabrics and prints.

Flowers are a beautiful symbol of freshness, grace, and purity and are synonymous with spring.  Floral prints are what I naturally cleave to in all seasons but I can play around with them much more in the spring. 

There are certain trends that are practically reminiscent of summer. Floral prints are eternal, versatile and represent strong femininity, cheerfulness, and effortlessness. Florals are all about having fun with fashion and staying comfortable this summer. Floral prints definitely put me in a good mood! How about you?

I am dressed up in PERKY POCKETS with umbrella overhead, flowers for dresses, and happy smiles for make-up!

These prints are so nice that you don’t really need to accessorize. What do you think?

PRODUCT REVIEW – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Shades-Stockholm (SMLC02) and London(SMLC04)

PRODUCT REVIEW - NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Shades-Stockholm (SMLC02) and London(SMLC04)

IMG_4995.PNG

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream has 34 shades to choose from, all ranging from nudes to vibrant colors. Although, I prefer the pink and nudes. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is one of the best lip creams I have ever used. I have become an absolute sucker for matte lipsticks ever since I bought these. It has a creamy texture that glides smoothly, feels weightless and sets to matte finish, and I prefer the texture of these over most liquid lipsticks as they do not dry out my lips. It lasts for at least 5 to 6 hours and keeps my lips moisturized, which makes this product simply amazing for the price!

Its packaging is not too fancy but it comes in a cute color-coded tube with a velvety black cap; it’s compact and perfect for your handbag. It has a doe foot applicator which helps in precise application. The shades are highly pigmented so you might not see a much difference in multiple coats, but to avoid the streaky feel, apply it once horizontally and then vertically.

My current favorite shades are-

Stockholm

London

Here are the shades that I have and their individual swatches:

Stockholm (SMLC02)

IMG_4991

It’s an earthy shade with pinkish undertones. This matte lip cream smells amazing, somewhat like vanilla! For a more subdued look, it’s a perfect nude and I am personally very fond of it, usually the shade I reach for when I can’t decide what goes best with any outfit. However, it is a neutral shade yet richly pigmented and opaque enough to cover pigmented lips in one application. I recommend this shade as it is well-matched for light to medium skin tones and it could wash out darker complexions.

MRP: Rs 570 (bought from Sephora Pune)

Here you can see how it looks like on my skin tone.

London(SMLC04)

London is a beautiful nude lip color with a pinch of brown; it appears very natural on fair and light skin tones. Pigmentation is on the medium side, so it doesn’t look totally opaque on the lips in one swipe. I absolutely love how lightweight this is on the lips. It keeps my lips moisturized too!

MRP: Rs 600 (bought from Nykaa)

Here you can see how it looks like on my skin tone.
