Avène Sensitive White Whitening Essence

Image
Avene Sensitive White Whitening Essence, the first high-performance brightness product specifically dedicated to sensitive skin. The combination of 2 actives with exceptional whitening properties in association with the Avene Thermal Spring Water for its soothing and anti-irritating effecr, gives the skin a unique brightness with a beautiful, transparent and glowing effect.

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

Image
A concealer is probably the must have product for me! Why? Because I have deep eyes and dark circles so you know how depressing it is right? No matter how much I think of sleeping early, using eye creams, eating healthy etc I get lazy to do all that! So I rely on concealer. I have tried couple of drugstore concealers but non wowed me! But I wanted a concealer desperately, so I decided to pick this Maybelline Dream Lumi Touché Highlighting Concealer.

NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Orange ~ First Impression

Image
This is my first NYX product and was a gift from Krithi from Confession of A travel-hoo-lic . I thought I'd share my first thoughts on NYX rouge Cream Blush in the shade Orange.

I'm not a blush person so you wont find too many blush posts on my blog, but I love a pop of color on the cheeks. Love how blushes just brighten up the face instantly and add some glamour.

Streetwear Nail Color Remover: Review

Image
I am obsessed with nail polish, so nail polish remover becomes a staple product. I actually love the Sephora Express Nail Polish Remover (Review : HERE), Inglot Nail Enamel Remover and an old favourite Lakme Nail Color Remover.

Riri Loves MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara Review

Image
I am not the kind of girl who likes to splurge on mascara, but if it came in a limited edition rose gold packaging I don't mind splurging. That's what happened with Riri Loves MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara, the packaging is drool worthy. I absolutely adore the pink and rose gold packaging and the tube is lightweight too.

Product Review: Aroma Magic Activated Bamboo Charcoal

Image
First of all Aroma Magic is a new thing for me but what caught my attention was that its a 'activated bamboo charcoal' because I immediately thought of the cult favorite Origins Clear Improvement Mask which of course is not easily available here so I decided to settle down on this.

Winter Skincare from Estee Lauder

Estée Lauder believes that every woman can be beautiful, and beauty begins with radiant, well-balanced skin. 

M.A.C Presents The Divine Night Collection

Image
Mineralize Eye Shadow, Blush and Skinfinish pair rich, contrasting shades with the graphic impact of a limited-edition powder design. Fluidline in Macroviolet and Stares & Speculation get you noticed, while Kohl Power Eye Pencil lines eyes with glittering shades of pearl. False Lashes sharpens with ultimate definition. Lips exude allure in matching shades of Cremesheen Glass and Lipstick, and glossy nails with a lacquered finish are fit to fire up everyone's envy.

Image
Oh I love gifts! This gorgeous Paranoid Purple was a gift from the most lovely person Krithi Marla from Confession of A travel-hoo-lic. She has seriously a brilliant taste in make-up & travel (So please go and check her blog if you haven't already done it). A big thank you sweetheart.

Christmas & New Year GIVEAWAY! Closed

Image
Hello Darlings!

For me Christmas & New Year means celebration time. So I decided to have a Giveaway for all you wonderful readers. This my first ever giveaway so I was confused on what would be the prices etc. and I decided on 3 Products which are my favorite products too.

NOTD: China Glaze Light My Tiki

Image
Hello my Darlings!


I was browsing through Snapdeal and came across this 'China Glaze ~ Light My Tiki' and I decided I would pick it. Its a glossy pinkish red shade with tiny micro-shimmer. The color is lovely and I feel its a 'feel good' shade. The formula of this is absolutely stunning, goes opaque in just 2 coats. Its pretty long lasting too.. I have this on my nails for 2 days now and it hasn't faded or chipped, which is rare in my case. Overall I love China Glaze for the variety but hate that it never reaches India:(

Coming Soon: Christmas + New Year Giveaway!

Image
Hello my loves!

I wanna thank you all for showing so much love! I have decided to have an international GIVEAWAY! There are some amazing things that you can win from MAC, Maybelline and Colorbar! The contest will go live on 14th December 2013 before midnight! Keep looking at the blog space.

Hello Beauties!




Happy Sunday :)! Hope you'll had a great weekend..Mine was pretty much relaxing! Sundays I always indulge in face masks! Today I want to share with you all, my 3 most favorite DIY's to improve the skin texture.

Product Review : Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil Free Cleanser!

Image
I am a very loyal customer of Kiehl's for the past 2 years. Why do I love them so much is because they actually live up to all the claims they make. However I have not been very impressed with Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream, so when I was given Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser  free with my purchase I wasn't too excited. This had been lying down in those free samples that I was yet to try.

Product Review: The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask

Image
Few years back, when I first entered The Body Shop i was very fascinated with their range of products. Back then I had very oily-acne prone skin so they suggested me the Tea Tree range and honestly I was hooked on to the face wash for years together and then I got bored of using the same thing! Happens to  me most of the time. I had not tried the mask at that time because I was very ignorant towards skin care. But now I am obsessed with my skin, I can do anything to keep it acne free! yes anything...

Product Review: Clinique Superprimer Colour Corrects Discoloration

Image
Having less than perfect skin I do tend to love primers a lot! Especially the ones that help me correct imperfections on my face. So when I heard Clinique was coming up with superprimers to address specific skin concerns I was intrigued to try them.

Laying the foundation.

As the leader in makeup foundation, Clinique introduces Superprimers, a collection of lightweight face primers that create a smooth, perfected canvas for foundation.

The wait is over and Rihannas fall collection , RIRI Hearts M.A.C has finally been launched!!!

Rihanna premieres her perfect palette of lavish fall colour – a range of decidedly daring yet classically gorgeous shades, finishes and tools, all encased in the metallic warmth of rose gold packaging. Lipstick in deep raisin, orange frost, creamy nude and the vivid red of RiRi Woo match gleaming Lipglass, while eyes in contrasting soft and smoky cocoas complement luminous skin highlighted with Diamonds Cream Colour Base and Powder Blush in Bad Girl Gone Good.

Hello my loves!
Wow! Its December already. First of all I am very sorry for not being regular in posting reviews that's because I was sick for more than 2 weeks:( I promise I shall come up with more reviews this month!

Product Review: Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture SPF 15

Image
Since my current moisturiser was running out I decided to go back to my most trusted moisturiser from Neutrogena. Couple of bloggers have showed their love for it and I have experienced the goodness of it too. Since I have very oily and acne prone skin, I prefer light moisturisers and this fits perfectly in that category.

Fragrance I am currently loving ~ Elizabeth Arden Mediterranean!

Image
Today I want to show some love to Elizabeth Arden Mediterranean, this had been sitting on my dressing table for months now! This was a gift from an aunt though I loved it at start I kind of lost interest. And then I thought I should try it now because the humidity is taking its toll! And I started liking it....

Product Review: FabIndia Rose Facial Water

Image
Rose water has been a 'must have' in my skincare routine. What makes me very fond of the rose water is they are versatile. I can use this as a toner or just to mix my face pack or just keep cotton pads soaked in rose water on eyes for an instant brightening! I bought this FabIndia Rose Facial Water because its 100% plant based soothing water and the brand is cruelty-free.

Lakme Absolute Drama Stylist Eye Shadow Crayon ~ Bronze: Review and swatches

Image
After the success of Lip Crayons, most brands have launched their Eye Shadow Crayons, and Lakme has joined the trend right on time. Since I am not an eyeshadow person, I did not try Eye Shadow Crayons from any other brand. So I cannot compare it with any other.

Product Review: L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo ~BestDrugstore Shampoo Everrr!

Image
I use drugstore shampoos very rarely! I feel they do nothing good to my hair and make them more dry, brittle and lifeless. But I was proved wrong! I bought this because my usual shampoo was running out of stock and I decided to try L'Oreal Total Repair 5 and its absolutely great!

Product Review: Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire

Image
Bioderma has 2 amazing no rinse cleansers Sensibio H2Oand Sebium H2O.Sensibio H2O is for normal to dry skin (sensitive skin type too), while Sebium H2O is for oily skin type. 

Inglot Nail Enamel #942 : NOTD

Image
There was a time when I was obsessed with InglotNail Enamels a lottt! I wanted a nice glossy Cobalt Blue nail polish like forever and I found this Inglot #942. This must be the only nail polish that I have worn a gazillion times and since I am again obsessed with it I decided to do a NOTD.

Maybelline Color Tatto in Pomegranate Punk Review

Image
What took me so long to try Maybelline Color Tattoos like seriously! I am not an eye-shadow person at all because I love going out with just a black liner most of the times. I tried out Pomegranate Punk, Bold Gold & Bad to the Bronze and OMGeee I love the colors. So vibrant! So colorful!

I have tried a lot of new things that have made it to my favorites list and few old ones which I still continue to be my favorite.


DIY: Pomegranate for Gorgeous Skin!

Image
I was waiting for my mom to finish with her hair wash and I was randomly going through the magazines there and I happened to read an article on pomegranate for skin! I love the fruit a lott...and I was really amazed with the kind of skin benefits it has.
Pomegranate are packed with potassium, Vitamin C and Antioxidants. Pomegranate helps to boost cell renewal & provides sun protection. Pomegranate seed oil is known to have soothing effects on the skin. It treats hyper pigmentation and has anti-aging properties which improves skin texture making skin firm, supple and smooth.
