Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF 15 evens and corrects: Review

Clinique Even Better Foundation
Clinique Even Better Foundation

There are 2 kinds of girls, one who have naturally flawless skin and the others who have to rely on foundations for a flawless looking skin. Sadly for me I belong to the latter category. I love the natural finish that my YSL Touche Eclat Foundation offers but the coverage is light-medium. I wanted a full coverage foundation that looks natural and this, Clinique Even Better Foundation was just the perfect choice.

RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday Collection ~ RiRi Woo Lipstick & Nail Lacquer Review and Swatches

RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday Collection
RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday Collection
RiRi Hearts MAC holiday collection has been launched few weeks ago in India. At first I had decided on 'Pleasure Bomb' lipstick which is a matte fuchsia, unfortunately it did not reach Bangalore at all.  So I decided to pick 'RiRi Woo' only for its drool worthy packaging. Also I was eyeing this 'RiRi Woo' nail lacquer ever since I got to know about the holiday collection.

If you are like me who love changing nail polishes then this, Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat can be your new BFF. I love nail polish and keep changing it often and until a few weeks back  I applied nail polish without a base coat. So you know how much damage is already done. So every time I changed nail polish I realised the application isn't even. I tried a few base coats but they did not impress me like this one.

Strawberry to cure Acne & Acne Scars


Hello my beauties!

Who doesn't like a flawless skin? But only a few are blessed with great skin and I for sure ain't the one with close to flawless skin. I have been breaking out like crazy in the past one week because of god knows what! I guess it's that time of the month screwing up my skin..

The seasonal variation and  cold temperatures do leave our skin stripped of essential oils.  As a result, many of us start avoiding essential skin treatments like exfoliation, also staying clear of face masks fearing any further damage.To beat the winter blues, the Clinique range of exfoliators / masks rejuvenate and revive the skin enhancing the glow.

Maybelline had some phenomenal launches in 2013, and with launch of Lip Polish (Color Elixir Liquid Lip Balm in other parts of the world) in India I'm hoping 2014 is gonna get better. There are 15 shades available in India. The color range is also good, they have nudes, peaches, pinks, red & plum. The shade I picked at the moment is GLAM6. Maybelline Lip Polish are compared with YSL Glossy Stains, however I haven't tried them so won't be able to compare.

Sample Reviews: Clarins Pure and Radiance Mask, Clarins Gentle Peeling Smooth Away Cream and Clarins Hydra-Matte Lotion

Hello Everyone!

I actually love brands that are generous in giving away samples. Clarins has been very generous in giving a lot of samples so I have enough samples that last about 2-3 weeks easily, so I thought why not have sample reviews where I will mention if I am gonna buy the full size or give it a pass!

Are Make-up & Skincare Products Really Safe?

Toxic metals in beauty products

This morning when I woke up, the first thing my mum asked me to read was about the article "Toxic metals in beauty products" on TOI. I took it quite casually as most of what comes in newspaper is made-up. But as I read through I was shocked by what I read. We beauty bloggers try & test a hell lot of products on our skin. Is it worth all? I am just shocked that reputed companies have been so irresponsible. Though I do a whole research on the product before I buy, there are days when I actually like something and don't bother reading the ingredients list. We can probably take care by reading the full ingredients list, discarding products once the shelf life is over & doing a deep study about the brand.

Clinique is the brand I am currently hooked on to.. They have some incredible products to suit different skin types. My hunt for a moisturiser was narrowed down to clinique. Clinique had 2 versions of this moisturizer: Lotion for normal-dry skin types & Gel for combination -oily skin. Since my skin type is acne prone and oily the best choice for me was Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.

New Maybelline 36H Lasting Drama Gel Liner ~Black: Review


A few days back while I was waiting for a friend, I decided to check out Maybelline counter and the SA told me that they have a new and improved Maybelline gel liner, and I was intrigued to try. Also it had some wonderful recommendation by fellow bloggers. So there I went ahead and bought this.

The New Maybelline 36H Lasting Drama Gel Liner comes in a Square Cut plastic jar as compared to the frosted glass jar. I personally love this packaging over the old one. This one is more travel friendly. It also comes with eye-liner brush which sturdy yet soft, pretty decent no complaints on that.
