Bourjois Paris Color Boost in Orange Punch 03

Hello Girls,

Today I am going to be reviewing another lip crayon but from a different brand.

Its Bourjois Color Boost in Orange Punch. Lately, I just love using lip crayons because they are so easy to apply and also because they keep my lip moisturised through out the day and feels so light.

Bourjois as a brand has never failed to disappoint me or let me down. :))))






What it promises:
  • Color Boosting.
  • Water Proof.
  • Glossy Finish.
  • spf 15.
  • Comfort and Hydration for upto 10 hours.

The lip crayon comes in a tube of the same colour as the actual product. To get more product simply twist the bottom of the tube.

Orange Punch is an orange tint that almost transfers as a coral when applied to your lips. This is a very pretty everyday orange shade and is good for those who wouldn't want to wear a bold bright lipstick.


CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (IRON OXIDES), MICA, CI 15850 (RED 6), CI 15850 (RED 7 LAKE), CI 12085 (RED 36), CI 15985 (YELLOW 6 LAKE), CI 19140 (YELLOW 5 LAKE), CI 17200 (RED 33 LAKE), CI 77891 (TITANIUM DIOXIDE), CI 45410 (RED 28 LAKE), CI 42090 (BLUE 1 LAKE), CI 45380 (RED 22 LAKE), CI 47005 (YELLOW 10 LAKE), CI 73360 (RED 30 LAKE), CI 75470 (CARMINE), CI 77163 (BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE), CI 77742 (MANGANESE VIOLET)].

Price: 785 INR for 2.75 gm.




My take on the product

These lip crayons are kind of like a mixture between a lipstick, lip balm and lip gloss. They have a very soft and smooth formula which gives  colour and shine to the lips. They're not at all sticky and just feel like you're wearing a smooth lip balm.

In terms of the colour lasting for 10 hour is a long time but the colour does leave behind a tint of stain while the glossy finish disappears.

They are very easy in application because of the Sunflower Oil and Silk extract.

It is a very appealing lip crayon for the summers because of the added SPF to take care of your lips.

It doesn't stay that long as it claims too. It lasted for about 3 hours on me.

Rating: 4.75/5 (0.5 for the staying power)

Overall I am impressed with these lip crayons.

I would highly recommend you all to try out these cute lip crayons as they will add a hint of colour for the summer.

Online Jewellery Shopping from Drop Dead Gorgeous- Review

Hello Girls,

Recently I came across this page named Drop Dead Gorgeous on Facebook, and  like I do for any other page that interests me, I liked it.

I randomly browse an online store and if I come across an item that I instantly fall in love with I will end up buying it. :d

This was what happened when I stumbled upon Drop Dead Gorgeous store browsing on Facebook. Jewellery from this store are very beautifully handcrafted. I am a huge pearl fanatic and I own lots of little jewellery pieces.So here's what I picked up from them....




(P.S- I ddnt get this box with the product.)

I  placed an order request with Shraddha and she was so cooperative and kept me updated about my order.
I received my order in a weeks time and am I am so happy with their service.

It was packed in a plastic cover, my only suggestion to them would be to work on the packaging of the product.

Price: 775 INR (inclusive of shipping) 

Rating: 4.5/5 

Overall I am in love with this neck-piece. They have a variety of accessories and I recommend you all to have a look at their page.

Happy Shopping :)

Do let me know your views on my Pearly Neck-piece :d

L'Oreal Paris Glam Sine Balmy Gloss in Pomegranate Punch (909)

Hello girls!

My net wasn't working for the past few days. Sorry for being Missing in Action (MIA)

So back to the post, todays post is all about L’Oreal’s introduction of its first glossy balm that looks after your pout.






Product Description

L’Oreal Paris introduces its first glossy crayon format for that looks after your lips. Balm and Gloss finally combined in a playful crayon format for mirror free application. Lips feel moisturized, look shiny with a sheer fresh looking colour off.

Price: 400 INR for 2.5 gm.

My take on the product

Pomegranate Punch is a berry pink color with silver shimmer, the color is very beautiful and also leaves your lips moisturized. There isn't any need for exfoliation prior to application. It looks glossy on application.

The shimmer doesn’t cause any difficulty in application. It glides on lips very smoothly to give it a beautiful shine and color. It also feels very light on lips and doesn’t settle into fine lines.

The best part is that it’s such a versatile color that it will suit all skin tones

The pigmentation of this particular shade is better than the other  shades.

It requires 2 swipes to cover pigmentation. Staying power is less, stayed for about 3 hours for me without a meal L

The price tag of INR 400 is super reasonable for the quality of product you get.

As far as the packaging is concerned these glossy balm come in the same color as that of the color of their stick with a silver cap.




  • Moisturizing.
  • Light on lips.
  • Glossy finish.
  • Color will suit all skin tones.
  • Pocket Friendly.
  • Pigmentation.
·    Dislike:
  • Staying Power.

     Rating: 4.5/5

I am completely loving this lip crayon and its worth trying out.Have you tried any from this range, do let me know.

My Thoughts
The packaging is the usual lip gloss tube packaging with a doe foot applicator which helps in easy application. You can see Palladio written on the tube and the shade beneath, so nothing extra ordinary here.It is soft , light on lips, easy to apply and has sheer coverage but that’s buildable. The glosses are not at all sticky . There are tiny sparkles in the gloss, which is not noticeable but gives a beautiful shine and that doesn’t create any issue in application. It feels moisturizing on the lips, which is a huge plus. There is a slight fragrance and taste (similar to cupcakes) but it doesn’t bother me. The gloss stayed with me for 2-3 hrs leaving behind a beautiful shine and also because this stuff tastes yummy I was tempted to eat it ;) .

1) PGL68 - Burnt Copper.
2) PGL03 - Icy Mauve.
3) PGL04 - Rose Brown.
4) PGL26 - Iced Rose.             
5) PGL59 - Bezel.
6) PGL09 - Copper.
7) PGL27 - Sheer Bronze.
