Jeffree Star Cosmetics Summer Chrome Collection – Review & Swatches | Ruchi Jadhav

Hey guys ❤

Happy Ganesh Chahturthi, Hope you all are doing well 🙂 I’m back with so many reviews for you all. Recently I have been receiving so much hate because I have been reviewing luxury brands ALOT.

I review products- only because I somehow believe in the products and it’s my passion. Not for free PR Kits or any form of money making business 🙂

All the products are purchased by my own money and so my reviews are obviously going to be honest and not-biased 😛

About Jeffree Star Cosmetics :

IMG_4221

My name is Jeffree Star. I discovered makeup at the age of 13 and have been obsessed with it ever since. I used to copy looks from fashion ads in my mother’s Cosmopolitan magazines and steal her eye shadows. When I graduated high school, I moved an hour north from Orange County, California to Los Angeles. I worked at makeup counters, freelanced and worked on many celebrities, music videos, fashion editorials and weddings. Now I teach makeup classes around the world and share my secrets that I’ve learned through over 10 years of experience.

IMG_4239

Playing with cosmetics is my favorite thing to do and I started to create my own formulas years ago but only wore them on myself & put them on my best friends. It’s been a dream of mine since I discovered my first lipstick, to create and own my very own brand. My goal is to create products that do exactly what they say and that actually last!

Price : $ 18

Review : 

The shade Family Jewels is very cool toned choco-brown shade. The milk chocolate kinda brown. I’m head over heels in love with this shade, on Indian skintone this shade would work as a nude. On days when I don’t need any glam, this shade is the one I would opt for.

IMG_4238

The formula of this liquid lipstick is something I have been looking for in all the lipsticks so far. So Light weight and one swipe gives an opaque finish. Completely matte and stays for almost 6-7 hours.

IMG_4232

IMG_4234

I love the wand, it helps you give an amazing shade to your lips, without having to use a lip liner, so win-win. His complete collection is mind-blowing and something that makes him stand out- his brand is completely vegan and cruelty free.

IMG_4227

Considering the price- it’s pretty affordable than most of the brands. I would rather pay a bit extra than use Lakme or Loreal – their lipsticks are cringe-worthy 😐

I would definitely purchase more shades, from his collection. I just wish he had more wearable shade options for Indian skin tones. 🙂

Review : 

Honestly it’s not very blinding, but I feel highlighters are wayyyy toooo overrated…….Let’s accept this, our Indian skin already has that shine which a highlghter would do on our skin.

IMG_4118

The pro is so many shades available to choose from. Second the result is better if you use your fingers than a brush. The shipping and Customs are a pain. But if you really love her products, just go ahead and get it and don’t let it haunt you forever  😛 . Her products sell out faster than you could say Kylie Jenner. Before you buy, you need to know which one would work on your complexion.

IMG_4120

Chocolate cherry is very close to my skin tone so for days when I need subtle and natural makeup glow, I would reach out for this one.

IMG_4122

I chose banana split and chocolate cherry, that is the one which would work for our indian skin-tone. Rest of the ones are pretty ones for pale skin. In the same price you can get Becca’s Champagne pop which so far is considered the best highlighter.

Pearl Academy, Portfolio 2017 #MumbaiByDesign

 

Hey guys
Hope you all are doing well 🙂 I recently attended this ever-so- talented Fashion Show by students like really, I was shook to go through their collection, their creativity is beyond imagination guys. :*

 

About Pearl Academy –

IMG_0586

 

Pearl Academy, India’s leading private institution/college in design, fashion, creative businesses and media, concluded this amazing campaign – #MumbaiByDesign which celebrated the quintessential ART in Mumbai through a series of initiatives across the world.

Are we excited to know more??? 😀

About Pearl Portfolio – 

Pearl Portfolio 2017 is a mega design event where our graduating students showcase their creative masterpieces as they define the future school of Design, Fashion and Creative Business. An event where you’ll be able to get a glimpse of the final project submissions of the graduating batch.

About the event:

18425394_1888232348112328_6094698257577240096_n

The day started with some panel discussions, at NESCO, along with some fun activities lined up, the selfie booth was created by the students specially for Mumbaikars, and I couldn’t resist clicking one 😉

FullSizeRender

Designer Manish Malhotra, Prahlad Kakkar, Actor Anand Tiwari and Sudhir Sharma founder, INDI Design came together in a discussion – ‘My City, My Life’ where they reflected on their journeys in the city of dreams.

I absolutely loved the fact, that they not only discussed about their journey but also guided the students, graduating students, asked them about their opinions and plans for their career, which made this panel discussion more fun and smooth going in the field of creative designing.

Next, not only this, each of the student’s artwork were displayed, right from clothes to crazy scientific experiments, were to be seen. Let my pictures do the talking 🙂

With a bold and a grungy feel- the dustbin was also creatively designed with said ‘Ikde taka’ which means Throw Here, how cool right!

IMG_0590

After the panel discussions, here comes my favourite part – The Fashion Show, each of the graduating students, designed their masterpiece, with the help of their respective mentors. Each group had their inspiration through something or some country, which was really mature of them. I have honestly seen such shows only at LFW and AFW.

18485740_1888232644778965_5227917632428852004_n18485720_1888233431445553_5927736014274152674_n

 

Each group had about four students, and 4-5 amazing outfits, here are some of the artwork’s done by the students at Pearl Academy Portfolio 2017.

What made me go gaga was the tribute to Mumbai- they had this special walk on the ramp, where they were dressed as Vada Pav, Dabbawalla’s, Taxi’s, Local train, which just highlighted the fact that Mumbai is known for all these random yet beautiful things.

18485395_1888232794778950_2088333556537832294_n

After the fashion show, we also had Manish Malhotra’s final thoughts about the students and their creativity, imagination, And I think he was pretty much impressed. 🙂

Pantene Pro V Hair Fall Control Shampoo, Conditioner Review | Ruchi Jadhav

Hey lovelies ❤

 

Hope you all are doing good ! Recently I have been using the New Pantent Pro V Hairfall control shampoo, and I’m loving it. Usually I do not change shampoo’s but when I got the chance to try the new Pantene, I was super excited ❤

 

About Pantene Pro V Hair Fall Control Shampoo & Conditioner :

IMG_5478IMG_5480IMG_5483

(1) Pantene shampoo helps control hair fall efficiently:

(2) Helps prevent dandruff and reduces damage.
(3) Dandruff and damage can happen at the same time, but you don’t have to give up solving one for the other. Hair become hollow over time as they gets damaged. This weakens their internal structure and they becomes prone to breakage.

Pro-V formula

(1) Strengthens the inside of hair at the structural level
(2) Penetrates and helps fill hollow parts of hair
(3) Lasting strength for reduced hair fall due to breakage
(4)No Dye, No Paraben

 

Packaging :

IMG_5489

It comes in plastic packaging in an off-white bottle along with golden flip cover and it’s travel friendly, both have similar packaging.

IMG_5490

 

Ingredients : 

For Shampoo –

IMG_5487

For Conditioner

IMG_5491

 

IMG_5493Review : 

As I mentioned earlier, I’m very skeptical when it comes to changing shampoo’s, I have Pantene even before, It’s obviously pocket friendly. The fragrance is the same like all other Pantene shampoo’s. I don’t really have any issues with my hair apart from Hair-fall (which is like a global problem) 😛 I noticed my hair-fall did reduce, not completely but I could notice some improvement. My hair looks more voluminous and more shiny. It cleanses the scalp pretty well. Specially if you have oiled hair. This is the best shampoo to get rid of the oil perfectly.

IMG_5482IMG_5496

The shampoo has  a very thick creamy consistency. It claims to have stronger,thicker and longer hair in 14 days. The conditioner is as good as the shampoo, for better results always have the same shampoo and conditioner.

IMG_5498

 

 

 

Honestly it depends from individuals to individuals and different hair types. It took me around 18-20 days to achieve the perfect results, but you will start noticing the results in the first 2 washes itself.

Since it has no paraben or any dye added, It’s completely fine to switch to Pantene. Also with Pantene – We have Priyanka Chopra as the new Global Ambassador for Pantene.

I’ll dolphinately let my pictures do the talking, but first the quality of the t-shirts are absolutely soft and breathable, the fabric used the best quality hosiery.

The collection majorly has three colors- white, black & navy blue (they’ll definitely add more I’m sure and I hope 😛 )

Let’s be honest, there are tons of companies to get you printed tees and blah blah, something iconic about this brand is the print- Each tshirt you see here is different, the design and the PUNS just does proper justice to what one needs.

I think it just adds an quirky personality to you, when you walk with such good puns 😛 😀

Also I loved the fact, that they haven’t used any words which we can’t wear in-front of elders, I’m sure you know what i’m talking about hahaha 😀

The collection is Unisex.

Here’s to never ending fun with the puns 😉
