   The Maybelline Color Show Go Graffiti Nail Enamels come in cylindrical glass bottle containers similar to other Color Show variants and are provided with a black colored screw caps engraved with the shade name and code number and attached with pliable applicator brushes. These bottles are attractive to look at, compact, sturdy and very travel friendly.
   The shade "Star Struck" consists of a base of clear polish which is interspersed with graffiti particles of varying shapes, colors and sizes - Large white colored stars, medium sized hexagonal light and dark blue and small and minute hexagonal white decals.
   The graffiti particles are well dispersed in the enamel solution and are easy to apply with the brush provided. The enamel has a quick dry formula and can be applied singly as an enamel or a top coat over a colored enamel. It has a good thin consistency to start with, but with time becomes thick and clumpy earlier compared to other enamels due to the presence of the graffiti particles. It has a staying power of 2 - 3 days by itself after which it starts to show tip wear, while it's durability is influenced by the base enamel when used in conjunction with one. The graffiti particles remain well stuck to the nails even after days of application but the larger white star shaped ones make for a difficult application due to its non flexible, sharp ends especially for those with tiny nails like mine. It can be tackled with a coat or two of clear polish or by carefully cutting off the pointy sharp ends with the help of a blade. Few of the blue colored particles loose color to appear white after a few days and also, it takes quite some time to get rid of the enamel with a remover. But nonetheless, the enamel gives a well manicured, zesty nail art look and instantly jazzes up the nails.
   Easily available across the nation and is pretty affordable!

Product Review - Garnier White Complete Multi Action Fairness Cream

   The Garnier White Complete Multi Action Fairness Cream comes packaged with an outer cardboard cubical box with a white and yellow color scheme with all the product information printed on it. The cream is contained in a white cylindrical light weight, sturdy and attractive pot and is provided with a white colored screw cap. May cause hygiene issues as the cream has to be removed from the pot by dipping fingers into it.
   The cream is white in color and well blended, light and airy in texture. It has a mild, pleasant fragrance similar to the one in the Garnier White Complete Fairness Face Wash which can't really be made out once the cream has been applied. A small amount of the cream is enough to cover the entire facial skin. The cream gets well absorbed on rubbing in circular motion and does not leave a whitish unnatural looking cast on face. It feels light on the facial skin, does not make it sticky and moisturizes it well without leaving any patches of dry skin. It gives an instant glow and a fresh appearance to the skin, making it appear a bit fairer. It does not cause my combination type skin to appear excessively oily or break out. The SPF 19 PA +++ in it makes it perfect for day time application by preventing skin damage from sun rays. It also helps in fading pigmentation spots and improves the skin tone making it look clearer and fairer with regular use.
   The ease of availability across both, online as well as offline platforms and a pocket friendly price is a positive, much like other Garnier products.
