My take on Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick :

I absolutely love Maybelline superstay matte lipsticks. The texture of the lipstick is creamy. It gives a complete matte finish look and the color pay off is mind blowing! The lipstick feels a little sticky in the beginning of application, but goes away soon as it dries. The product is thick and does it’s job in one single use. Thanks to the lipstick wand, the dent on the wand pulls out the desired amount in one shot. Never try building product over the first layer, it will feel uncomfortable and look tacky!

I usually apply this lipstick , just one coat, to work in the morning , and trust me guys, it stays through out the day! Prox, 11 – 12 hours.

I loved the lipstick so much that I went ahead and got another one! Yes, I decided to pick a pink shade – Romantic. Here are the swatches of the Maybelline superstay matte ink lipsticks I have with me now.

Cantu Leave In Conditioning Cream review

Hey all curly hair beauties out there! Today, I am going to review Cantu Leave In Conditioning Cream. I stumble upon this product while I was looking for a nice curl activator cream online. I naturally have wavy hair, and for a very long time I was looking to try a thick conditioning leave in conditioning cream to tame my wavy hair and give my hair the nourishment it required.

Cantu  Leave In Conditioning Cream review

My experience with the product:

The product took some time to arrive in India. Some customs related issues, but I finally got it after 3 weeks! I know it’s a long wait especially when you are so excited about the product. 😛

I absolutely love the way it worked on my hair. It helped in making my hair look healthier, added some shine & moisture. It even gave some soft curls to my wavy hair. However, this happen only on my second use. The first time I used, I applied on damp hair and let it air dry. It did made my hair manageable, but didn’t give that curls. The second time I used, I tried to apply right after shower (while my hair was still wet) . And using a blow dry, I semi dried my hair. This time, it gave my hair the exact thing I was expecting for.

I have been using this product for 6 months now. The quantity is great given the high price. It’s really thick and has rich oils. While it doesn’t feel heavy on wavy hair, but makes the scalp a little oily. I like to use it more around the hair ends, so that it doesn’t make my scalp oily on the second day.

If you have really naturally curly hair, you can try Cantu curl activator cream after using this leaven in cream.
