Top 5 Korean Beauty Standards ft Indian Beauty Standards

It's been long time that I have posted about Korean Makeup Trends after the very famous 3 popular Korean Makeup Trends 2013
I am back again with some interesting comparison between Indian beauty standards and Korean beauty standards.

1. The Eyes

I have observed that Indians prefer natural eye color or we use some colored contact lenses. But definitely not the circle lens.

I do not see a single K-Pop artist or an actress sporting the natural contact lenses. All they want is the circle lens. I actually love their eyes more when they wear the circle lens. If the circle lens is colored, then it is a huge plus.

Oriflame The ONE Colour Impact Cream Eye Shadows - Review,Swatches

I do not own many cream eyeshadows just because I feel these are a bit tricky to work with. The only one I have used well is the Maybelline Color Tattoo and I loved the fact it stayed on forever. Also, it set the standard high for a cream eyeshadow. So, when I got a chance to try the cream eyeshadows from Oriflame, I was elated. Let's see if these live upto my expectation.

Revlon ColorStay One Stroke Defining Eyeliner in Glazed Green Review,Swatches,EOTD

Hey people..Glazed Green. What a name! I mean it brings to mind pictures of forests for some reason. Revlon ColorStay One Stroke Defining Eyeliner is the longest name an eyeliner could possibly have. The worst part part is if I keep sharpening, the name will keep disappearing and eventually only the word green will be left.

L'Oreal Paris L'Or Lumiere Cannes Makeup - Resplendent in Gold - My Version

When I have this L'Oreal Paris makeup with me, my creativeness never has a boundary. At least when I am given the step to step instructions on how to create the Red Carpet Ready Looks in minutes.
Okay, not minutes but yeah, a very little time. Apart from that, I am sure that I am the last person to create a look.

FOTD using the L'Oréal Paris L’Or Lumière at Festival de Cannes

Hey people
Im sure that you are aware of the new launch from the brand L'Oreal. If not, please do have a look here
I have the L'Oréal Paris Super Line Gel Matic in Turbo Turquoise. It is a bright colour to carry. I have used it on my lower waterline and also on the eye lid. Smudged to create a brown smokey eyemakeup.


I am never into so much of eye makeup to work but one thing which I always keep it in my handbag is the Maybelline Colossal Kohl in Black! The new variant is awesome. I will have to write a review on it. Will do it super soon. Anyway coming to this, Maybelline always stood upto the expectations with the quality,quantity and cost. It never became a burden neither it compromised with the quality. Out of very few brands that are available in India, Maybelline is one brand that we girls go back to always. Keeping in mind, they launched this new variant in the Maybelline Colossal Range, A Turquoise Kohl ! Perfect for the summer eh.
Price and Quantity:
INR 249 for 0.35gms

What it says:
For all those ladies out there who prefer reading the whole package for more information regarding the product,this is for you.

This comes in the signature Colossal Package ie yellow pen but with the letters in metallic turquoise which goes with the theme. The cap is tight and locks with a click sound and sleek package makes it more chick and travel friendly.
My Take:
I usually do not judge a product by checking out other people's review but I judge it based on my own experience. When I got this,I wasn't really hoping that it can look great or me or so. Because usually this colour is metallic and bright and I am sure it would look great on fair skin tones. I was a bit doubtful on this. But eventually when I tried it on, I was blown with the pigmentation and staying power. This is not too bold but because it is metallic it makes the colour pop. I used it on my lower lash line and  on upper lash line and once I did a thick line around my eye shape. Out of all, it looked stunning on the lower lash line. It  just made my eyes pop with ease and it is not bold when you wear a thin line and for a bolder look,you can always wear it thick. The texture is super creamy and it just glides on the skin. The pigmentation is great. I have swatched it just with one swipe. The lasting power is great too. It survived my office hours (ie 8 hours !! )without creasing or spreading. Once set, it can only be removed clean using the eye makeup remover.
On my eyes:

My Rating: 4.5/5
It is a cool colour for summer and if you are bored with the usual black kohl, you can go for this. Well I can say that is not really a must have. Maybelline could have come up with any other shades rather this. Quality wise,it is awesome but the colour can't be liked by everyone.
