Hi There!

I know I ain't posting as regularly as I should but oh well priorities do change :) 

So are u done with Dan Brown's Inferno?

 I am !!! Despite being lifeless by the end of the day I managed to read through the humungous book by last Saturday :D Fast Paced and Nail Biting Thriller. Could not keep the book down especially in the last few pages!

And now I have started with The Girl Who kicked Hornet's Nest. 

I had fallen off the track with my diet and started being strict from yesterday. Man it is so hard especially in the food court :P I stick with fruit juices without sugar and fruit salads during breaks and eat homemade lunch while my friends are gorging on cheese and paneer sandwiches and still manage to be slim :\ 

I also got a Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine lipstick in an oh so pretty shade :) Will review it in the coming week :)

5 Office Makeup Looks to suit ur mood!

If u r confused about what blush/lip combo to wear to office or need some inspirations fret not for I am gonna list down some of my favorite trusted combos to help u out :)

The looks are very simple and hardly take time. For every look Kajal and Mascara are default. I also use Garnier BB cream over moisturizer to give that lit from within glow. 

1.The Natural Look :
The first look is very basic. Use a MLBB shade of lipstick with a hint of blush that is more or less similar to the lipstick shade :) U can dust a teeny bit of highlighter across cheekbones and nose if u find the look flat for ur taste.

My Choices:

Lipstick :
  • Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Rosy Nude
  • Lakme Lip Love in Rose Kissed
Blush :
  • Colorbar Cosmic Rose
  • Inglot 27
  2. The Face Brightener Look :

For this look I would suggest going for summer colors like corals/peaches/oranges. I am biased towads this look as it is an instant pick me up :)

My Choices :
 Lipstick :
  • Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Papaya
  • Revlon Lip butter in Tutti Fruiti
  • MAC See Sheer
  • Avon Simply Pretty Mango mania
  • Lakme Day Blusher

 3. The Eye Focus Look :
Here in addition to the kajal and mascara, apply thick black liner on the upper lash line. Smudge it a bit if u like. U can swap black with grey to make the look more smoldering :)
If u r going with this look a peachy brown lipstick would be my suggestion.
My Choices:
Lipstick :
  • Maybelline Colorsensational My Mahogany
  •  Atittude Natural Brown
 Blush :
 I personally would not wear blush with this look but u can use a dusty/dirty rose shade like Lakme Cheek Artist in Rose Kissed
4. Healthy Flushed Look :
This look is more focused on the cheeks. Hence use a good amount of medium pink/peachy pink  and blend out well. The blush should mimic ur flush after a good jog. Finish with a light swipe of peachy pink/light pink gloss.

My Choices:
Lipstick :
  • Bourjois Rose frisson
Blush :
  • NYX Peach
  • Avon Simply Pretty Fresh rose

5. Polished Look :

This look is simlar to the 1st one but more chic. 

My Choices :
Lipstick :
  • Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Sweetheart
  • Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Soft Rose
  • Maybelline 14 HR Lipstick in Lasting Chestnut (for brown lovers) 
Blush :
  • Inglot 58
  • Kryolan R6
  • Kryolan Mocca ( for pairing with lasting chestnut)

 U can always mix and match the combos :) Not necessary u need to use the exact products. The post was just to give a gist of various combinations that work well for me and that might work for u too :)
Most of the products listed above have already been reviewed here so u can use the search box to go thru them :)

Hope u enjoyed d post :D Feedbacks and Comments are welcum!

MAC See Sheer Lipstick Review with Swatches!!

My First MAC lipstick Review!! Yaaay!!

I had always wanted Cosmo as my first MAC but it did not exactly flatter me under the store lights. Actually no lipstick did but I wanted Crosswires and Mehr.As both were OOS I picked this up along with Captive :)

MAC See Sheer is the most flattering peachy coral I have come across! And this is not coming from me cuz it is my first MAC. Honestly I am liking it more than my Revlon Soft Rose and that is saying something ;) If u are looking to buy a summer color from MAC then check this out! I guarantee u would be floored by the color especially if u are fair-medium.

The packaging is standard MAC so I am not gonna dwell on it.
It is from the Lustre Finish range of MAC and provides sheer coverage with one swipe. But the opacity can be built to almost 75-80%.

Has a soft honey like texture and gives a glossy finish. Is lightweight and hence would not bleed like other creamy lipsticks. Keeps my lips hydrated. 

The only con is the staying power which is just 2 hours on me :\ But I do not mind reapplying :)

I have dry lips and I always use a lip balm underneath lipsticks. This one does not settle into my fine lines.I saw sum reviews complaining about it but thank God that does not happen with me ;)

It goes well with coral and peach blushes :) Totally a no fuss lipstick that can be worn with minimal makeup for the soft look and not to forgot the delicious vanilla smell :D 

Layer Revlon Papaya gloss over this to attain Coral Nirvana :)


A coral color that stole my heart with its glossy finish and dry lip friendly texture :)  If u have more pink in ur lips it would probably look a pinky coral on u. It is my first MAC and if at all it gets over am gonna re purchase for sure ;)

Ponds BB+ Cream Review and Swatches!

Sometimes life as a beauty blogger sucks but most of the times I enjoy being a BB. It gives me an excuse to try out new products.Like the fuchsia lipstick I got the other day which I knew I would not wear outside my home but the color was super pretty. So I gave myself d excuse that I wanted to review it for the blog :)

Don't ask me y am I rambling. I am hungry and tired and literally falling asleep on the keyboard.

After test driving the new BB cream I am gonna give u a ride on what r my thots on it ( Okay it did not sound right!!) 

I got the small 9g tube for testing purpose for Rs.69 :)

The BB+ cream has a uber cute and travel friendly packaging. I have started carrying a new tube in my office bag. No worries of spillage.
D nozzle helps in economical usage as we can control the disposition of the product.I also like the fact that they have d 9g tube which can be purchased for trial purposes.

The texture of the cream is thicker compared to the Garnier and Maybelline counterparts.But it actually spreads better than those 2.
The Maybelline and garnier ones require me to compulsorily use a moisturizer underneath.I can skip moisturizing with Ponds if my skin behaves well :)
IMO this is better suited to dry skin.

Only 1 shade is available- Natural Cover.It might not suit dusky/dark skin.
The cream initially gave me a whitish cast but it died down after a few seconds. So do not panic if u find ur skin looking grey/white.
This one does not make my skin oily. FYI I got normal-dry skin.
The best part is that it brightens my skin and adds a slight glow.
The coverage is medium in the sense it lightens pigmentation/marks but does not fully cover them.

Has good SPF content- 30 PA++. Higher the + after PA means better protection from UVA rays :) 

What is with the Fairness claims??? Indian gals are now smart enuf to know that fairness does not mean beautiful ;) 

 It is a decent product if u do not crib about the fairness claims or the lack of shade selection  :) But personally I like my Garnier BB cream better as of now.

U know the feeling u get when something u long desired for is in ur hands! U feel like a u r in a dream albeit a beautiful dream! Feels the whole world is in slow motion and ur heart swells in pride and satisfaction :D

This is exactly what happened when the MAC SA gave me the bag with my first MAC goodies! 

Also I got the Kryolan Customized Blush palette :) Another great moment of my life :D Deeps helped me select the shades :*

The first makeup item that I bought (not considering the lipsticks for dance programs) was a blush :) I can never have enough of them! So I wanted this palette to be a part of my first big haul :)

 I got all d pretty colors that I wanted except a peach :P See?? I can never be satiated. Nevertheless I own 6 oomphalicious blush colors from Kryolan :)

I got the Kryolan blushes in shade :

  • Mandarin
  • Mocca
  • F22
  • YouthRed

 It is a great news that Kryolan now accepts order for customized blush palette :) I was more than happy when the SA offered to create my palette.

So what do u think of my haul?? After putting up the pics I realized how much I love colors.
