Jovan White Musk Cologne Concentrate Spray Review

Today I am going to review jovan white musk eau de cologne spray by Coty. I wanted to try perfumes from this brand because I had smelled perfumes from this brand on my friends and quite liked it, so wanted to buy one for myself too. These are not light fragrances but more on the stronger side and definitely long lasting.

Let’s learn something about the brand first. It is Jovan by Coty

So let’s go this fragrance in particular
I like this perfume. I wear many fragrances, but this one is REALLY DIFFERENT. It is musky, yet feminine and powdery-floral at the same time. What I experience is that when I spray it at first, it comes too strong to me, but slowly it settles down and becomes subtler and I like it more and more as time passes by. It is really long lasting. You have to be careful about the amount you use with this perfume. Too many sprays can give you a headache. Also by the end of the day, when I’m taking off my top a faint smell of it still remains. I am stopped nearly every day – by friends and strangers alike – of every age – to ask me what fragrance I am wearing. This is the BEST cologne I have ever used – it is so warm, sexy – so delightful to the senses .It is definitely not just for daywear – it’s a night-time fragrance, for sure! I can’t get enough of the great comments I hear on how beautiful it smells – especially from men – they LOVE it!

MAC Sumptuous Olive Eyeshadow Review, Swatch

MAC Sumptuous Olive Eyeshadow : Hi Friends, Today I am going to review one of the greens I have in my eyeshadow collection. It is MAC Sumptuous Olive!

On MAC’s website, this eyeshadow is described as Khaki with pearl.It is in family of Veluxe Pearl eye shadows. So duh! There has to be some pearl in it! Ok, jokes aside, I love this dirty green color. I would describe is a shade of military green that is kind of like khakhi. It is goldenish-muddy-olive green. It suits fair-medium to darker skin tones very well and goes well with night time and daytime looks depending upon the extent of intensity. You can pair it with heavy wedding kind of clothes or even with casual wear. Plus since its very finely milled with gold, it goes on smooth and doesn’t crease under a primer and stays on for long hours – about 6+ hours. Then it does fade away, which is kind of okay. It has great pigmentation, just a light sweep can pack on nice layer. You can go as heavy as you want or you can keep it just light and right!

Its pretty in pan, but will still appear to be grey-green-shiny-muddy color.

This shade is in the family of greens, so goes well with pinks, goldens, browns and creams. So it is very versatile! My favorite way of pairing it is with either another green or some dark brown in the end. Then black eyeliner and masacara completes the look!

See, you can feel the dirty muddy olive green, yet golden kind of dominates a bit.

This is how it looks with another green eyeshadow! Sumptuous Olive is on the bottom part.

Now lets summarize and see what pros and cons are!

Pros

1) Versatile eyeshadow, no fallout, infact sticks to the brush! Or eyelid well.
2) Ease of use, glides on easily, great pigmentation
3) Good Staying Power – abt 6+ hours, if used over a base or primer.

Cons

1) It is mostly golden, with a slight olive green in backgrown – it’s kind of like duochrome. So if you are looking for more green, this may not be your choice.
2) I have found it little hard to blend silky shadows (versus matt shadows), but with slightly more efforts, this can be resolved.

After all, my recommendation is buy it if you love it. Veluxe Pearl eye shadows do not disappoint and are quite easy to use and duochrome effect works well if you want to use just 1 eyeshadow and make it look that you have used two!

So I hope you liked the review for MAC Sumptuous Olive!

Dove Body Silk Cream Review

This cream was given to me by her sister when I was at home last time ,she said it was way too moisturizing for her and asked if I wanted it .As always ,we never say no to free things,specially if it’s a cosmetic product I happily took it and brought it with me .

What it Claims : Energy rich moisturisers and pure silk for silky soft skin

After taking it from my sister ,I just completely forgot this cream and it got buried somewhere deep inside my cupboard. Once,I was feeling my skin was getting very rough,dried and dehydrated and that was when I remembered about this Dove Body cream.

Its name is itself so appealing – “Silk glow” plus its packaging with cream coloured tub is so soothing that it gives you a belief its going to do good for your skin. Plus it’s a Dove cream,I have personally liked dove, from the time I first used those soap bar. I am sure most of you must have atleast once used their soap bars . I even liked their shampoos a lot but they use to leave a residue on my scalp ,so I had to switch them .

Coming back to Dove Body Cream,I felt the texture was quite thick and it wouldn’t get absorbed easily in the skin . But when I used it on one side of my arm I was so surprised to see it got absorbed very quickly and it literally made my skin glowing and shining ,my skin felt hydrated . I was so happy about the cream that I used it all over my body and happily sat down . After a sometime,I felt a nasty smell coming from somewhere ,after a few sniffs I realised it was ME ! That body cream was giving out dirty stingy smell and I couldn’t figure out why. I opened the cream tub again and smelled it,the smell their was alright but after a few minutes of applying it on my skin,it would start smelling badly. I though may be the cream was expired or something but when I checked its expiration date it was in 2013. I made my room mate smell it too and she literally ran out of the room smelling it . I had to wash my entire body after that.

So anyways ,after all this mishap I called my sister and asked her about the smell and then she told me she gave me the cream because she hated the smell .

PROs of DOVE SILK GLOW BODY SILK CREAM

It gets absorbed pretty quick
Makes skin very smooth and glowing
Moisturizes skin very well without leaving an oily film over it
Makes you want to touch your skin again and again
I feel its great for both summers and winters since its not to oily and it provides the right moisture needed by the body

CONs of DOVE SILK GLOW BODY SILK CREAM

The smell is sarcastic I cannot withstand it all
I don’t like the tub packaging,makes it a little difficult to use
Will I purchase it again?

No NEVER EVER ! I will probably run if I even see it in the market. I am thinking to gift rest of the cream to my enemies ! You should buy it only and only if you can withstand it or else you should definitely stay away from it
