I think VOV, M.A.C and Loreal are 3 brands which must have 1000s of dupes in market. I have seen M.A.C eyeliners in stores for 150INR, so you can guess how much of a "MAC" it is!
Check this VOV dupe I found in a store in Kerala. I picked this up just out of curiosity, mainly cos it was just 120INR. Well, as you can guess, I dont use this product except when I am doing experiments which I do on my arm.
It contains a mirror + foundation + shimmer powder, which can be used for setting.
Can you see anything from the powder swatch? No? that is cause it is useless and doesnt show!
All I have say is, BEWARE of DUPES!!! There is nothing like WOW-products for WOW-price..its always WOW-products for "OH-MY" price :)
Everyone buys duds of products, but then it falls to my lot i think, to buy all the possible duds you can ever expect to find in any sale!!! :( I dont know why this happens, I can only blame Online shopping problems and trust that if I were to buy these from shop after swatching I might buy differently.
I got these from Fashion and You sale on VOV. I must say that the gold liner is decently pigmented and is a nice bright gold shade. Ruby red is also okay dokey. But the green! Wow! The most useless eyeliner you can find!
Its almost like buying cheap glitter from shop, mixing it with water and trying to apply it over your lids.
Check the pics below:
From top to bottom, the shades on the swatch are gold, ruby red and green. Notice how sheer and less pigmented the green shade looks!
The only good point is that it is just 180rs per item but still i feel like I could have used that 360 INR for something I actually would use! What with no ingredients listed, not able to find this product in VOV website, I am very disappointed about this purchase. I think all of these are VOV dupes!!!!
There is one thing I do regularly, that is check on all new makeup shopping and review sites as soon as I reach office :) shocked?
I got this beauty from a 99labels.com sale. I dont remember the exact discount I got, but most probably it was lost in the shipping+COD charge they have. It retails for INR 600.
This is what L'occitane says about the perfume:
All the delicacy and the softness of Cherry Blossoms in a heart shaped solid perfume, for fragrant touch-ups throughout the day.
You can check and buy the product if available here [It is mentioned that this is a limited edition product]. Why I love this?Hmmmm, It is a very nostalgic scent. I dab this when I feel down or when I am stressed and I feel good. It is a very flowerly smell and last for an hour or so on me. Doesnt cause any irritations. In fact I feel pampered when I use this.. :) I would definitely like to try other L'Occitane products including their Immortelle range.
I love shimmer eyeliners, though i dont have much uses it for it. So when i saw this beautiful forest green shade from Revlon for sale in Healthkart, i went for it.
