After blending NYKAA SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation 03 Warm Sand

My Experience with NYKAA SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation 03 Warm Sand:

Nykaa has done a brilliant job by introducing this foundation as they are color adapting foundations and hence called as Skin genius. So starting with the shade range I feel that Nykaa should have focused more on their shade range as there are variety of Indian skin tones and 5 shades are just not enough.

The foundation has a weightless texture and a semi liquid consistency which seamlessly blends the foundation into the skin. It contains hyaluronic acid and polylift which makes it work better for sahara desert like dry skin. It has a dewy finish that adds a glow to skin and doesn’t give a patchy look for sure. I have a medium skin tone and i got my hands on 03 Warm sand. As this foundation is color adapting it adjusts to my skin within like 5-7 minutes. Since it has hyaluronic acid in it, the foundation is hydrating and feels light. It has a sheer to medium coverage which is good option if you use a foundation everyday, it gives a healthy glow to skin and feels so light like you have just applied a moisturizer to your skin. It hides light spots but if you have an extremely pigmented skin using a corrector or a concealer is recommended. I am not more of a foundation person but i really love how it works on my skin. I love more of dewy makeup than extremely matte one so the ones who feel the same surely give it a try and to beauties having combination to oily skin type will need a setting powder to avoid oil on face, I apply a compact powder or White tone powder to set the foundation under my eyes and T zone. 03 Warm sand is perfect for medium skin tone. It stays entire day without melting or creasing and that makes me a fan of this product.

If you have a medium deep skin tone and if buy this shade 03 don’t worry it will definitely adapt to your skin just give it some time to settle down. I have tried this same shade on my friends having a shade lighter and a shade deeper than my skin tone and it works.

Overall, NYKAA SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation is a perfect daily wear foundation. If you are confused of which foundation to go for or you are a beginner into makeup definitely give it a try. Also if you are confused of which shade to buy, try the foundation in your nearby Nykaa stores.

Starting up with the Makeup Product

SUGAR Nothing Else Matter longwear lipstick in the shade 09 Royal Redding Full Size (INR 500)

 

Sugar cosmetics keep launching new and great stuff and since they launched Nothing Else Matter Lipstick range I wanted to try the shades and texture and lasting of the same that’s when I got a chance and  got my hands on shade 09 Royal Redding. I was really happy on receiving the lipstick. It is a Bullet lipstick having nice bright maroon red shade, has a smooth texture and glides on easily. It is not transfer proof but it does stay for good 4-5 hours. Overall i am happy with the product 🙂

Bio bloom Lip Balm Mint Full Size (INR 140)

Previously I have never tried any products from the brand Biobloom. I tried this lip balm for a 3-4 days now it has mint in it that gives a cooling and refreshing feeling to my lips, hydrates chapped lips and is perfect for winters so men and women out there you guys can definitely give it a try 🙂

W2 Ivory Peach Moisturizer Full Size  (INR 220)

W2 Ivory Peach Moisturizer

I loved the packaging of the product it comes in a matte black colored bottle with a pump dispenser having a peachy fragrance which is moderately strong but it is bearable. The product claims to provide natural radiance, balance oil, remove dark circles and spots (interesting). I have not tried it yet, I do have dark circles and would try and surely let you guys know my reviews on the same 🙂

The Nature’s Co. Kelp Sea Bath Salt Full Size (INR 400 for 100 grams made exclusively for FABBAG)

The Nature’s Co. Kelp Sea Bath Salt

This Bath Salt is one of the best products received in Jan FabBag it has a mild & soothing fragrance. I tried it twice by adding it into bath water it definitely gives a relaxing feel and I felt fresh for a long time. It is great to add in while bathing after a real hectic day 🙂

Hip Hop Skincare Instant Nail Polish Remover Wipes (pack of 2 Wipes for INR 10)

Hip Hop Skincare Instant Nail Polish Remover Wipes

It is a sample product and I tell you guys it is definitely better than all the nail polish removers that i have used in the past. It is acetone & acetate free, it is oil based consisting of argan oil and vitamin E nourishment. It took me just one wipe to get rid of stubborn nail polish off my hands and feet as well. Also, it did not leave my nails dry instead I felt like my nails got nourished loving this product 🙂

Palmolive Skin Therapy Facial bar Full Size (INR 55)

Palmolive Skin Therapy Facial bar

Earlier I have used body wash from Palmolive but this facial bar is completely new to me it consists of vitamin C & E which is really good for skin. They say it is a skin therapy and on use will help skin look radiant and moisturized. Well, I have not tried it yet ( haven’t used facial bar since years) but i’ll let you know the review soon after I try it.

So guys, that’s all for today’s review. Hope it helped you. See you soon 🙂 Take care ❤
