Today I am going to share my opinion on Nelf USA HD 24h stay foundation which I had received in one of my fab bag earlier this year.  Till now I have used this  lot of times and I am very particular with my point of view on it.  So let's start,

Nelf USA HD 24h. Stay Foundation Review

Price - Rs 800/- for 30ml.
Available - this is a big issue .

Shades - There are only 3 shades available which is again a concern.  I got the shade natural and it is a nearly-perfect match for my skin tone.

Packaging -

Nelf USA HD 24h. Stay Foundation Review

The foundation comes inside a regular glass bottle packaging with a pump dispenser.  The pump dispenser makes it very easy to use and allow the right quantity of products each time.  So there is no excessive product wastage. The glass packaging is a little bulky and not travel-friendly.  There are information regarding the product on the bottle itself.

My Experience - 

I got the shade Natural for me which is a warm tone shade.  I prefer warm tone makeup stuffs for my skin tone and I feel they suit my complexion well.  The texture of the foundation is perfect to apply .It is not runny nor very thick.  It blends properly on skin without much effort.

I need maximum two pumps to cover my face and neck. As it is a HD foundation, the coverage is obviously on the higher side.  It gives sheer to medium coverage which is again can buildable.  The foundation photographs really well. I love this for that.  It doesn't hide the undereye dark circles fully, you will definitely need a concealer for that but it can hide the light blemishes or spots. I can say, this is a good foundation for daily wear purpose (if you are doing makeup on daily basis).  It will not look over done kind after applying.

It stays on my skin around 6-7 hours and started fading slowly.  It gives a nice dewy coverage everytime which looks very natural.  The only thing, there are only three shades and one can't find a perfect shade.  That's the biggest drawback I can say.. The brand should add more shades to the range.

Let's summarise. .

Pros.. -

1- Pump dispenser packaging makes it easy to use
2- Gives good sheer to medium coverage
3- Photographs well
4- Comes under budget
5- Stays for around 6-7 hours
6 - Hides marks and blemishes properly
7 - Blends well in skin and not feels heavy.
8- Has SPF 15

Cons. . -

1 - Availability
2 - Limited shade range
3 - Bulky glass packaging

Rating - 3.8/5

Final Verdict - The nelf USA HD foundation is a good foundation though there is only three shades to choose from.  I love the coverage, texture and quality.  It is good for wearing daily and it seems very natural in skin.  A good purchase.. 😊

Shade & Texture :  

 This a black shade kajal. Infact there is only black shade available in this range . I wish they will add few more vibrant and colourful shades in future. This is darkest black shade with no shimmer or shine in it. It settles into a perfect matte finish look.

Texture is very creamy and smooth. You need to be careful while applying. Too much pressure might tends to break the tip easily. It glides on eyelids very smoothly without tugging or pulling . I don't like the hard tip kajals because it is sometimes not comfortable to draw perfect line on the upper eye lid . but this SQ one is very soft and smooth to apply . I love applying kajal on upper eyelid or to create wing line and this one is just perfect.

Pigmentation & Staying Power :

Stay Quirky Eye Love You Kajal Review

This is intensely pigmented in one swipe only . I love the dark black shade it gives in one swipe almost. As per the brand the kajal is suppose to be smudge-proof and water-proof and it is to some extent. It is water resistant for sure but not fully smudge-proof. If you are applying on eyes and not touching it ,then it will stay longer . The staying power is around 4-5hours . But when applies on upper eye lids, it stays more .

Heya girlzzz. . By now you guys must have known that I am a lipstick addict person . I love collecting lipsticks from different brands.  To be very honest, I always think twice or thrice before investing in any high end brand lipsticks but if the price is under budget, then I don't think much.  The only thing matters me is the formula of the lipstick because I have really dry lips and the humid weather of my city makes it more drier.  I love matte lipsticks but for dry lips it is too much to do beforehand to get a nice pout perfect lips look.

Nykaa Ultra Matte Lipsticks Diana and Marilyn - Review and Swatches

Recently Nykaa has launched their new range of lipsticks which named Ultra Matte Lipsticks.  According to the brand these are the liquid lipsticks formula in bullet form. All the shades are richly pigmented and smooth to apply on lips.  Water proof and transferproof and stays long hours without fading. There are 10 shades in this range.  All the shades named after the great women around the world which I completely appreciate.



Nykaa Ultra Matte Lipsticks Diana and Marilyn - Review and Swatches

I have the shades Diana and Marilyn with me.  There are nudes,  pinks,  mauve and red shades in this range.  I have really very high expectations from this range by Nykaa.  Let's see how these fair to the claims..

Price - Rs449/-
Available on Nykaa. 

Nykaa Ultra Matte Lipsticks Diana and Marilyn - Review and Swatches

Packaging - The lipsticks has colour coded packaging which is a good thing. The cap of the bullet has magnetic closure . The square packaging of the lipstick makes this look classy and chic. The bullet has lipstick name at its bottom . There is also outer cardboard box which has all necessary information regarding the products.

Nykaa Ultra Matte Lipsticks Diana and Marilyn - Review and Swatches

I love the lipsticks names of the ultramatte lipsticks. Nykaa has put the names after the super women around the world. Among the 10 shades i got Diana and Marilyn shades which are obviously very beautiful.

Shades, Texture, Pigmentation & Staying Ability :

 The shade Diana is a very pretty mauve shade with warm pink undertone. It is more towards the warmer tone side and i personally love warm-tone lipsticks, hence i picked up this shade. Marilyn is a beautiful warm tone red shade . I am a big fan of red shades lipsticks because i found red shades always lift up my mood and complexion too.

Nykaa Ultra Matte Lipsticks Diana and Marilyn - Review and Swatches

The texture of these ultra-matte lipsticks are creamy and soft . These glides on lips very smoothly without tugging and pulling . After few seconds of applying these set into a matte finish look. Though these lipsticks are very lightweight and non-drying on lips ,but you have to prep your lips beforehand to get a smooth base. Both the shades are really pigmented. They gives perfect colour in just one swipe and you can swipe twice to get a opaque look. I am really impressed by the pigmentation abilty of these lipsticks. There is no shimmer or shin in these lipsticks ,these are pure matte ones.

Though the brand is claiming that these shades are transfer-proof but in real these are not completely. The colour transfers into things but it won't affect the colour on lips ,hence i won't mind. These are not complete water-proof as well. After having heavy lunch or oily food ,you will definitely need a touch-up . These stay on my lips around 5-6hours.

Nykaa Ultra Matte Lipsticks Diana and Marilyn - Review and Swatches

I love both the shades. Diana is my go-to shade right now. I almost wear it every single day while stepping out. I will try out 2-3 more shades from this range for sure. I will recommend everyone to try out the shades Diana , Marilyn to try out. I am going to buy Helen and Cleopatra shade next.. Nykaa is coming some of the awesome collections day by day which is amazing. Now enjoy the lip swatches..

Childhood is a really precious time where a baby learns a lot about the world and his surroundings.
 It is also special for all the people who are involved with the baby in some or the other way for it provides a storehouse of special memories which can be cherished later on in life. As with everything good time flies by and he/she is no more your little baby hence I recommend that you get a baby portrait done to treasure all the good moments that you have had in your life.

A Baby Portrait for some Golden Memories

Turn photo to painting of your loved one and watch as it takes a beautiful form of its own.
A portrait painting is a great way to go down the memory lane and let nostalgia take over for some time as you revel in it.

Childhood is the time when a baby experiences many new and different things, some of them may bring emotions of joy whilst some may bring painful ones. In the midst of all of these things we come across certain golden moments that bring a wide smile unto our faces.

The moment may pass us by but the memory can certainly be placed in our hearts forever.
Turn pictures to paint of all the cute little memories that you have of your toddler.

PortraitFlip is just the perfect site for turning photo to paint and getting a portrait painting done.
They offer you a quite a few option with regards to the medium in which you want your portrait painting such as charcoal portrait, oil portrait, watercolor portrait, acrylic portrait, pencil sketch portrait and colored pencil drawing portrait.

How it works:

Go to the PortraitFlip website and click on the get started button. Choose the size and medium in which you want your baby portrait painting and fill in all the essential details like: number of people, getting it framed or rolled. After all of the above is done the cost will be displayed and you can also give your own suggestions to the artist in a message box that is placed below. Once everything is completed, you have a choice between paying the full amount or a 30% deposit and the rest once your painting is finished.

A genuinely well crafted handmade portrait painting is the perfect way to recreate some awesome memories. It is a great way to relive all those special memories again and again. Childhood is a time of innocence and dreams, of hopes and aspirations. No dream is to big and no goal is to high, one day they may want to be an astronaut and the other a pilot and yet another a cricketer. The point is a child has the courage to dream and sometimes we lose this ability in our adulthood giving it the name of reality or sanity. Get a baby portrait done to capture this childish innocence and vigor.

Their ability to derive happiness at the small little and, sometimes labeled ‘insignificant’ things is what keeps them smiling all or most of the time. A baby can be a portal of unbridled joy and happiness.

A customized baby portrait painting is a thus a great way to add to the aesthetic beauty of your house.
Just imagine a huge, almost life size painting of a wide smiling child hanging from the wall, isn’t it the perfect way to grab the attention of all the guests and colleagues that come to your house. Despite all of the chaos and sleepless nights a baby is definitely one of the greatest gifts that god could bless anybody with.

Feelings of Motherhood - Very Precious

Being mother is a true blessing . The moment i came to know that i am pregnant ,I can't even explain my feeling in words. The moment was very precious . From the day one of my pregnancy ,i was waiting for my baby soul to hold on my hand ,to see in-front of my eyes. I was literally counting every single day . Now I am pregnant with my second kid but the feelings of the #FirstTimeMom is very different and special.

Then the day came and I delivered my little soul . That day was the best day ever. Finally I held my little bundle of joy . The funny thing was ,i was looking at him continuously for hours and can't make myself believe that i have become a mom . The feeling and the experience is beyond happiness. I was eagerly waiting for, when he will also looking at me ,recognize me as his mom and will smile at my me . I know i am sounding crazy but i was like that in that point of time. Then after becoming 2 and 1/2 months he started staring at everyone and started giving tiny smiles and i was like in seventh heaven . Sometimes there were happy tears in my eyes. I couldn't thank enough to GOD for this . By looking at his naughty smiles , I always forget my whole day tired . When I got angry by his naughty tantrums , sleepless nights , continuous feeding , he always gave his baby innocent smiles to me and I completely forgot my anger within seconds. Even now when he has become a toddler , my anger couldn't sustain in-front of his smile. My husband sometimes called me crazy for this .



The baby is always very precious of a mom .His happiness ,his needs are always the first priority for the mom. During the initial days babies do fall sick very often as their body try to cope up with the outer world. We parents always feel helpless by seeing our baby in trouble ,isn't it ? When my son was only 6 months old ,he got  serious diaper-rash issue. Our pediatrician told that the reason was heavily use of wet wipes which was very surprising for us. He suggested us to switch to cotton and water instead of wet wipes and it worked too that time. I was shocked by knowing that the wipes are all polyester and has full with chemicals ,alcohol,etc. That time there was no options for cotton and water based wipes . Recently few months earlier i came across a brand Mothersparsh which has water based wet wipes for babies . I got for myself to test out first before suggesting to anybody and loving it completely .

About #FirstWaterWipes by Mothersparsh :

The brand Mother sparsh has come up with the first water based wipes which are extremely comfortable and gentle for baby's sensitive delicate skin. Mother sparsh wipes are made up of plant based material which is 100% biodegradable.  These wipes has 98% water content which makes it as good as cotton and water.  As there is no polyester and harm chemicals, these are so gentle on baby's delicate skin.  The wipes have goodness of aloe vera, jojoba oil and vitamin E which moisturised baby's skin and keeps hydrated.  After wiping the baby's skin it doesn't feels dry or sticky  at all rather it feels silky and smooth. To prove the purity of the mother sparsh wipes ,you can do a flame test . With a flame test it burns like cotton and becomes ash where as polyester based wipes become lumps after burning .

Price - Rs 175/- for 80 wipes

Feelings of Motherhood - Very Precious

As the mother sparsh wipes has no polyester in them, hence these also very much environmental friendly.  There is no artificial fragrance in these wipes. There is no alcohol and other harsh chemicals, hence baby's skin will not get any allergies or skin irritations with regular uses . These water based wipes are clinically proven, hence you can use without any worry.

Since months now I am using these mother sparsh wipes for my son and  completely satisfied  . I will definitely recommend to every mother to try out mother sparsh wipes ,i am sure you all gonna love it.

I love the feeling of cold winter but my skin doesn't. During winter the humidity level in air is very low and the cold wind takes away the natural oil from skin and makes it dry and flaky . Dry ,crack skin is more prone to bacteria and it can be worse by getting itching or eczema . It is always necessary to take proper prevention beforehand . Today in this post I am going share about 10 essential tips which you should follow to lock down the natural glow in skin . So let's start..

10 Winter Skincare Tips You Should Follow

1. Use Lukewarm Water : 



Taking hot water bath during winter is very relaxing and a pure bliss. But hot water takes away the moisture from skin and can make it further drier and rough. Instead of hot water ,use lukewarm water for your bath . Even do use lukewarm water for washing your face and hand . After bath ,never ever forget to apply a good layer of moisturiser when your body is still wet. Always choose a moisturiser with hyaluronic acid and ceramides in it.

2 - Keep Body Hydrated :

10 Winter Skincare Tips You Should Follow

It is very important to stay hydrated during winter by drinking water in regular intervals. Normally during winter we don't feel thirsty very often but in-spite of that drinking water is very necessary. The dry weather evaporates the water content from body easily, hence having water ,juices,fruits are very important. It also maintains the natural glow on skin.

3- Choose Skincare Products Accordingly :

10 Winter Skincare Tips You Should Follow

Always choose skincare products according to your skin type. Following the CTM routine regularly is very necessary. During winter ,sometimes skin behaves sensitive ,hence using of mild skincare products is advisable . Choose cleanser which has moisturiser in it ,hence you won't feel dryness after wash . For acne prone skin choose products with hyaluronic acid, ceramides, glycerin , hydration serum in it to maintain the pH of skin . Avoid using alcohol based products as it will make your skin further drier .

4- Don't Exfoliate Skin Much :

Exfoliation helps to remove the dead skin cells from skin and it is also an important step of any skincare regimen. But during winter , as the skin is already dry ,you shouldn't exfoliate more than once a week otherwise the outer moisture barrier of skin will damage more . If you have very dry skin type ,then avoid exfoliating completely and for normal to oily skin it is advisable to exfoliate once a week .

5- Protect Skin :

Protect skin from cold wind or snow is very important. Sun rays feels awesome during winter but UV rays can damage skin more. Apply sunscreen which has titanium oxide or zinc oxide. Another important thing is avoid going out with damped skin or immediate after shower as this might cause skin cracks easily in cold.

6- Don't Neglect Your Hands And Feet :

10 Winter Skincare Tips You Should Follow

 We normally forget about our hands and feet to take care of during any season. The skin of hands is very thin and delicate as compare to skin of other body parts. Hence it tends to loose its moisture very easily and prone to dryness and itchiness . We should apply a heavy duty moisturizer or hand cream in regular intervals . Don't forget to wear gloves while stepping out during winter for extra protection. For feet ,exfoliation is a must to remove extra dead cells .Apply glycerin or petroleum jelly  based creams on feet to lock the moisture .

7- Choose Natural Skincare Products :

It's always good to go with natural skincare products over the chemical loaded ones. Honey, jojoba oil, banana, aloevera, avocado oil are really good for skin.You can also include essential oils into your skincare regimen.

8- Sunglasses :

Sunglasses are must during stepping out. Snow and sun rays can damage the skin around eyes which cause dark circles too. Wear a good UV protected sunglasses to avoid the skin damage around eyes.

9- Diet :

10 Winter Skincare Tips You Should Follow

Taking a proper nutritious diet plays an important role in healthy looking skin. Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables ,  Berries are full of nutrients and vitamins . You can have strawberry, cherry,blueberry, grapes, raspberry ,etc. Having water, juices, soups, green veggies is a good decision during cold weather to boost up the energy.

10- Exercise :

10 Winter Skincare Tips You Should Follow

 Like proper diet,exercise is also very important . Exercise or yoga makes body sweat and improves blood flow to the organs and skin. It detoxify skin and makes you feel healthy and glow-y  from inside and outside as well.

So all these are the tips you should follow to get a healthy looking skin during winter. I know that it's a bit difficult to follow all the tips in one go but if you follow maximum of these ,the result will be awesome and you will definitely gonna thanks me later.

That's all for today's post. See you in the next post ,till then stay hooked..
