Review: Faces Longwear Eyepencil in Navy Blue

Pleasing me is extremely simple! If anyone wants to please or impress me, the sure shot way is to buy me a decent colored eye pencil and I'm a slave! Ha ha lol seriously and I really hope my husband is reading this so that he knows the trick to please me right after a tiff! :P 

Jokes apart, today I would be talking about a ravishing  eye pencil I cannot stop gushing about. Simply because it makes my eyes look fabulous each and every time I apply it. [yeah yeah am blowing my own trumpet! :)] Tell me girls, aren't the Faces Longwear eye pencils every girl's sweetheart? 
Now, with scores of reviews on the net, I will not write the product details as it is old news already. Rather let me just KISS (keep it short and sweet) that is. 

I bought the Faces Longwear eye pencil in the shade navy blue in June (you can read more about that Haul  here) and as soon as I tried it on my eyelids, I fell head over heels in love with it. Here's why: 

1. It is extremely smooth and glides on the eyelids like butter. 
2. True to its name, Longwear it surely is. It refuses to budge when you use a face wash only. You need a cleansing milk or make-up remover to remove any trace of this eye pencil. 
3. The color pay off is very good. One swipe and your eyes are lined perfectly well. And I just love the shade I bought. 
4. You can sharpen it easily. 
5. Wonderful colors in this range makes you get all of them. 
6. The one I bought in navy blue is not shimmery, making it a perfect wear for office and day as well. 
7. Affordable and easily available online and in most beauty shops. 

Lastly, this is a must for all of you. If you still do not have this in your kitty you're missing out on an awesome pocket-friendly product. 

I'm getting a few other shades in this range for sure such as black, dark green and purple. 

Price: INR 349/-

As always feedback is welcome. :)

August Haul

You must have known by now that we Beauty Bloggers are prey to cosmetics and with the rage of bold colors all around, I am no exception. So I fell head over heels for a gorgeous Magenta lipstick and that is what I bought me in the beginning of this month. Well it is not a newly launched lippy and many of you are quite familiar with it. Yes ladies, let me introduce you to the newest guest in my vanity - the O My Magenta lipstick from Colorbar.

Woo it is some bold color I must tell you! One swipe and your lips are ready to rock.. yeah I mean it literally. It is that color which can set any red carpet event on fire and make heads turn instantly, as soon as you make an entry. And here is how I tweak it. I am not a complete brave heart, so cannot think of wearing it during the day when the sun is blazing. So I wear it mostly on cloudy gloomy days when we dont mind adding a dash of color to our outfits. Also you could pair it with outfits that dont flatter your complexion, to add a little brightness to your overall look.

And I dont need to tell you that it is such a welcome break from the boring maroon and burgundy colors we have seen on women during weddings etc. You got the hint I hope; this wedding season try this Magenta lipstick instead of the old maroon lippy you have been using since ages. :)

Try it and you wont regret it girls :)

Press Release: Give Your Skin a Perfect Score! The all new Vaseline Complete 10 With 10 benefits for younger fairer looking skin!

Mumbai, 2013: Perfect looking skin is every woman's desire, but are you ready to face the truth about your skin? Has your skin lost its suppleness and feels dull, dry & dehydrated? Does your skin show fine lines, uneven skin tone and dark spots along with skin darkening? Well, if these problems sound familiar, then you are one amongst many of the Indian women who are looking for a respite. This tale of weakening in the skin's texture and quality can be reversed, with the new Vaseline Complete 10 body lotion!

Until the age of 25, nature protects you from various skin problems, due to the skin's amazing ability to rejuvenate itself. The skin is equipped with a natural repair mechanism, through which older skin is replaced every few weeks. But after the age of 25, there is a slowdown in this process and the body skin starts showing inconsistency in the colour and texture in comparison to the facial skin.

Benefits of Vaseline Complete 10

1) Visible skin lightening over time
2) Makes the skin feel firm & tight
3) Restores the even tone of the skin
4) Visibly helps reduce fine lines
5) Protects from the UVA & UVB radiation
6) Helps renew the skin
7) Helps in the reduction of the dark marks
8) Provides intense moisturisation
9) Boosts the radiance
10) Deeply nourishes the skin

While we take utmost care of our face and put in a lot of time and effort in following beauty protocols; the fact that body skin needs equal amount of care and pampering is often ignored. This nurturing is pivotal to achieve a natural glow and an even skin tone that matches the facial skin. Ignoring our body skin care can lead to evident signs of skin ageing with every passing year. Plus there are some intrinsic factors related to modern lifestyle such as a poor diet, lack of exercise, reduction in immune function and external factors like environmental pollution, which lead to skin damage, accelerating the aging process.

Vaseline Complete 10 body lotion helps the skin to look young and radiant as it contains essential ingredients that facilitate the skin rejuvenation process! It is infused with vitamin B3 which aids the lightening process of the tanned skin and helps in restoring an even skin tone. It also includes AHA which helps in boosting the moisture content and the elasticity of the skin. Besides that AHA also helps to exfoliate the dry skin cells and assists in restoring even skin tone. Plus it is topped with glycerin and lipids that make your skin look nourished and radiant.

Changes in skin start appearing due to modification in its texture which reflect in the form of thinner skin, weaker skin barrier and increased dryness. This is often caused by slower cell renewal process, slower shedding of skin cells and changes in the skin's structural composition, which results in reduced blood and nutrient flow to the outer most layer of the skin, leading to signs of aging in the form of dullness and uneven skin tone, which become more evident!

Vaseline Complete 10 body lotion has triple sunscreens which help to protect the skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. The protective layer of the lotion thereby prevents further tanning and damage to skin.

In addition it also includes the goodness of anti-oxidants which protect from UV damage and thus help in reducing the fine lines appearing on the skin. This body lotion contains CLA, an important ingredient that helps in reducing the dark spots and assists in skin renewing process.

The benefits sound almost never ending! So what are you waiting for, grab a bottle of Vaseline Complete 10 body lotion and welcome every approaching year with confidence that reflects not only on your face but also in your body skin.

Brownish Black EOTD

After a nude EOTD it's now time for a glamorous smoky  brown eye. I used very normal products to create this look. Wanna know more? Then read on.

Sorry for the undone eyebrows! (Hope this doesnt raise a storm.) :P
The products used to get this look are:

1. Miss Claire's shimmery black eye shadow
2. Lakme Waterproof Instaliner
3. Himalaya Kajal
4. Lakme Eyekonic kajal
5. Clinique mascara

And that's all that I've used. Sounds great isnt it? 

Let's see how I got this look. With a eyeshadow brush I applied a generous amount of the shimmery eye shadow. After blending for quite some time, I lined my eyes with the eyeliner. 

Then I applied the Himalaya kajal, and followed it up with the Lakme kajal to get a full on smoky effect. I applied two coats of the mascara to  the lashes and voila the look turned out just right ( I suppose)! :)

What are your thoughts about this look?

Review: Fab India Vitamin E Enriched Night Cream for Dry Skin

For the past couple of months I have been looking high and low for a good moisturising night cream that also checks premature ageing of the skin. And this hunt ended when I zeroed in on Fab Indias Vitamin E enriched Night Cream for Dry Skin.

Well I do not have dry skin per se yet I fell for this seeing the vitamin E on the label! Being easy on the pocket and sold by a herbal brand like Fab India, I took no time to order it online from Medplus and when I checked this product, I kinda liked it. Read on to know why.

As I have already said, it is herbal, yet I saw the presence of a lot of chemicals. The cream is a thickish-white formula that seems quite heavy at a glance. However, I feel the consistency is of a very mousse-like smooth cream. 

For someone blessed with a combination skin like me, it might not be a good product. However considering the usually dry conditions in Pune all round the year, this worked really well for me. The first time I applied this cream, my face felt very smooth and instantly moisturised. But I got to feel the goodness of the cream when I woke up in the morning. My face not only felt smooth, but seemed silky and plump like a babys cheeks. Seriously girls Im not exaggerating a wee bit.
Over a period of time, after regular usage, I did notice the pimple marks on my face fade away and skin becoming satin-smooth. As a result, my face looks a lot more bright and clearer than before. This tub really delights me when I see the difference it has made to my skin.
So my advice to all of you, would be to buy, apply and enjoy the benefits of this cream yourself! Do not delay. Lastly, this is a wonderful night cream and does its job extremely well. Oily skinned girls could try this in the night as the cream is not overtly oily, but creates a matte effect. I'm thinking this could be a great product for women looking for anti-ageing benefits as you can apply this last thing in the night. 

Price: INR 275/-
