Looking for an affordable neutral eyeshadow palette? Check out the Sivanna Brown eyeshadow palette. 

Sivanna brown eyeshadow is exceptionally the best affordable neutral eyeshadow palette,  budget-friendly and the pigmentation of the eyeshadow is commendable. I also like the tiny packaging as it fits inside the handbag without eating up much space. This nude eyeshadow can also be used to fill in eyebrows on days you run out on eyebrow pencils. 

It consists of six beautiful neutral shades, out of which, four are matte and two have shimmer. Price at 499 rs, while you can get it at much better deal at AMAZON.IN


This definitely falls under best affordable matte eyeshadow palette available in India.

The Sivanna eyeshadow palette No.2  has ten beautiful neutral shades in one palette. Even though it says it’s matte it does have three shimmer shades and one highlighter, which completes or should I say complements the other matte shades in the palette.

A perfect eyeshadow palette for daytime wear, and also you can wear it at night with bold lipstick. Talking about the texture and pigmentation, I would say that it’s not at all powdery. It sets perfectly and lasts for about 5 hours without an eyeshadow primer. The pigmentation is good as compared to the price. However, I suggest you use it with an eyeshadow base to get rich pigmentation. I paid 420 rs for the palette on Amazon and it’s absolutely worth it.

Priced at 195 rs, Swiss beauty eyeshadow palette 01 is an affordable matte eyeshadow palette or must I say one of the best affordable glitter eyeshadow palettes as it has both matte and glitter shades in it. Swiss beauty offers an eyeshadow palette that can be great for beginners. If you are looking for a neutral eyeshadow palette with glitter or a small eyeshadow palette, just explore their eyeshadow palette collection.

Is Love beauty and planet shampoo Sulfate free?

Let’s check their website product description to find out. 


Smooth it out. Our Smooth and Serene Sulfate-Free Shampoo, infused with argan oil and ethically sourced French lavender, delivers a nourishing cleanse that gently removes dirt, while lightly moisturizing and infusing your hair with a decadent scent of French lavender. 

Our shampoo is infused with argan oil, known to give hair a boost of moisture and a dose of nourishment, to smooth hair. We source our golden argan oil through a women’s co-operative with the Berber women of Morocco. 

Our formulas are also infused with French lavender. It is grown using the traditional ‘préfané’ technique, which means the lavender is cut by hand and left to dry in the fields for two to three days. This gives our product the unique fragrance of soft, floral notes, balanced with slightly fruity overtures that are rounded out by a sweet balsamic.

My experience with the Beauty and Planet shampoo

The fragrance of the product is mild and pleasant. On hair, the fragrance don’t last for very long. It stays for a day or so. The texture is a creamy yet very light. It lathers so good, just a coin size of the product is enough.


I have medium length hair and I usually use exactly a coin size to cleans my hair. It makes my hair softer and manageable. As far as my hair frizz is concerned, I feel, it does help when used along with the conditioner.


The product comes in a transparent recycled plastic bottle so you know how much you have used the product. However,  It’s quite sturdy and bulky, so not so ideal for travel.

MAC Ruby Woo vs Russian Red – Review


I was never a red lipstick person until I tried The Mac Ruby Woo. It was and still is, one of the best shade of Red I have ever worn. And then, comes The Mac Russian Red. It is again one of the reds that give me a glamorous feeling every time I put it on. Writing this post on MAC Ruby Woo vs Russian Red as a lot of you have been asking me which one is a better red lipstick shade. 🙂

Trust me it’s not so easy to do a comparison review on two of my favourite lipstick, because obviously, I might sound a bit partial to either of the two shades, but I promise to keep it short, informative and balanced. 🙂

MAC Ruby Woo vs Russian Red

MAC Ruby Woo vs Russian Red


Website description: Very matte vivid blue-red. A long-wearing Lipstick formula with intense color payoff and a completely matte finish.


Website description: Intense bluish-red. A creamy rich Lipstick formula with high color payoff in a no-shine matte finish.

About the lipsticks:

The overly famous Ruby woo falls under ‘Retro matte’ category of the Mac Matte Lipstick. Retro matte lipsticks are super matte and can be extremely hard to apply on dry/ chapped lips. A well-moisturized lip is a must before applying the lipstick on or it may look horribly sad. But, retro matte lipsticks has it’s own beauty. Since the texture of the lipsticks is super matte, the color payoff is amazing and it’s long-wearing formula is commendable.

Russian Red, on the other hand, falls under Mac’s ‘matte’ category and therefore is very smooth and easy to apply. It is way off creamy and has a high color payoff. It has the perfect matte texture and doesn’t have any shimmer or shine.



MAC Ruby Woo vs Russian Red

Shade: At first glance, there is not much difference between the two shades. Both the shades have a blue undertone to it. When applied on lips, Ruby woo looks brighter than the Russian Red as the later has more intense bluish undertone to it. In short, Russian red is deeper than Ruby woo.

Texture: Ruby woo is super matte and needs a good amount of swipes and the right amount of pressure to get the perfect red pout. Works best on well-moisturized lips. Russian red, on the other hand, is super easy to apply since it’s texture is that of a creamy matte. The matte texture of both the lipsticks helps the product from feathering, so you have a non messy lips most of the day.

Lipstick Hack: I am sure you all know this very common lipstick hack where you dab a little amount of loose powder over the lipstick to give it a matte finish. I tried the trick with Russian Red lipstick, and I was quite surprised to see that it looked (almost) like Ruby Woo. The powder minimises the deeper undertone and gives it a bit brighter look.

For those who love rich matte Red lipsticks, I suggest you guys try both the shades out!
