NARS as a company needs no introduction. Everyone knows how amazing their products are. They are the best in quality and they are hella expensive too. I wish they come to India or provide us easy access to their products. I have used many products by NARS – be it lipstick; lipliner; blush or bronzer nothing disappointed me. My last purchase from NARS are Satin lip liner and Radiant Creamy Concealer in shade Medium 2-Ginger.
The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Body Butter – Review.
Argan oil is advocated as moisturizing oil for dry flaky skin, treatment for wrinkles, rheumatism and the healing of burns and nourishing hair. It has highest amount of Vitamin-E and unsaturated fatty acid. Wild argan oil comes from precious argan nuts which are sourced from the remote Atlas Mountains of Morocco. They are hand-picked, hand-cracked and slowly pressed for the purest form of Argan oil. I recently came across of Josie Maran Argan oil for my skin (yet to receive it – review will be up soon after testing) These are the most expensive oils I have come across mostly because they are only available in certain places in Morocco. The hard work and patience need to extract Argan oil is worth the price.
When MAC Maleficent Collection launched I was sure not to pick anything from this range, I have enough red lipsticks which I barely use and don’t want to stock up more. I wasn’t really interested in anything from this range but my urge for neutral eye shadow did not stop me. I am new, very much a novice when it comes to eye shadows, all I know is to start with neutrals. MAC Maleficent Collection Eyeshadow Quad was a gift from one of my friend who definitely knows my likes and dislikes. I have discovered multiple uses with this product… if you want to know more, then continue reading…
“Bourjois Paris” as a brand is well known worldwide for its most popular and raved product- Bourjois healthy Mix/Serum foundation. Last month I picked few more products including 2 new eyeliners. I have different brown shade but those are quite light in colour -more of a chocolate brown with golden shimmers in it, not appropriate for daily use. Therefore a deep dark matte brown eyeliner pencil is what I was looking for. I love how soft and pigmented these eyeliner pencils are. Let’s see what company has to say…
I was eagerly waiting for electro pop baby lips by Maybelline ever since I saw them on YouTube. There was another version called-“Anti-oxidant” which comes in old packaging but un tinted. If you ask me I always prefer tinted lip balms when I am out. Anyways when I saw new Maybelline electro pop lip balms at the Maybelline counter I jumped straight into it and picked one for myself. I wanted to pick “pink shock” as it’s the most pigmented out of all but since I heard the scent is intolerable I couldn’t take chances so I picked “Berry Bomb” instead.
Maybelline CLEAN EXPRESS!-WATERPROOF EYE MAKEUP REMOVER – Review and Demo.
Maybelline recently revamped the packaging of their Makeup Remover which used to come in blue bottle. Now that the packaging changed to pink from blue which somewhat looks little fancy than earlier but it is nothing except but the marketing strategy. People always get attracted to something new that comes in market. After seeing so many reviews online I decided to give it a shot. When asked, the SA mentioned it is the same product in different and better packaging. God knows what is better about the packaging except it is little leaner and pinker. Anyways I was running out of my makeup remover and badly needed one. Best time I picked it up and as you can see I used it so much It’s almost over.
MAC- The Pro Lipstick- Fusion Pink. – Review and Swatches.
Sometime back when MAC Pro lipstick collection launched in Kolkata, I picked “Show orchid” for me and “Fusion Pink” for my sister. I could not control myself from getting “Fusion pink” after I saw her rocking 😉
This is my 3rd Pro MAC lipsticks; don’t know if it is some bug or something what made me running after so many pro lipsticks?? And today while writing I am thinking of getting MAC Pro Lipstick Neon Orange- GOD-Save My Soul!!
Clinique All about eyes- eye cream
A life with dark circles can be a nightmare! There are many variables which causes under eye bags, wrinkles, under eye circles, dark circles etc. Few may be genetic, some because of stress, due to less sleep, less water intake, bad diet habits, etc. Nowadays every brand has their own night creams, starting from local drugstores to high end. However, so far I haven’t seen any review which gives 100% *thumbs up* that works 360*degree in combating wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, under eye bags etc. I don’t have a lot of under-eye problems except during those monthly days. I surprisingly received this eye cream from Clinique with my goodie bag and since then I have been using it occasionally whenever required. I have dry skin I really need something extra and heavy for my face and body. It’s no joke that those who have dry skin get wrinkles sooner than oily skinnies – #behappy 😀
ZA Cosmetics- True White DAY Protector Cream SPF 26 PA +++ – Review.
I got a small 5ml tube of ZA cream with my envy box. I wasn’t aware of “ZA Cosmetics”–as a brand but later came to know that it’s another brand from the house of Shiseido. Newly launched and making room in market however I was skeptical to use any new skincare products on face before checking online. The one I got and the one I will be reviewing today are completely different. The one I got in small 5ml tube was “ZA true white day cream” I used and loved it. I brought “ZA Cosmetics- True White DAY Protector Cream SPF 26 PA +++” mistakenly. I messed up with both names and got confused.
MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick- Review and Swatches
I like the concept behind releasing MAC Viva glam lipsticks. Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipglass is donated to the M·A·C AIDS Fund to support men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS. It is not a lipstick that you just buy but it feels good when your addiction can actually help those who are in need. Everybody knows that MAC luster finishes are least favorite of all but there are few shades which look lovely and for me this is a sweet pick <3
MAC- The Matte Collection 2014- Pander Me lipstick- Review and Swatches.
MAC Pander Me – a beautiful everyday shade from MAC- the Matte lipstick Collection 2014. The collection already launched on 14th and I guess most of it is OOS. When it comes to MATTE lipsticks everybody goes crazy and starts calling them their babies 😛 C’mon who don’t love MAC matte lipsticks in this world, I do-you do-everybody does! I feel like Pander me is the mix breed of MAC Yash and MAC Taupe. I had MAC taupe but I gave it away, the shade is pretty but somehow it ain’t getting much love from this mamma. *naughty face*
Milani Liquif’Eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencils- Shade: AQUA- Review and Swatches
During my Milani Haul I also picked Milani Liquif’Eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencils shade: 04 Aqua. I wanted the black one too but sadly it was OOS. I have heard very good reviews on Milani products and finally decided to pick few of them. This is my first mini milani haul where I picked only 2 products – One is brow highlighter duo and the other one I am going to review today.
I have been obsessed with eyebrow products lately. Perfect defined and full eyebrows are every woman’s dream. They not only lift your facial features but also enhance your look. Since I am deprived of thick and defined eyebrows I always keep trying different brow products to give my undefined eyebrows a little kick. There are many high-end brands making brow highlighters but I want to try something which was easy on pocket. I brought MILANI BROW AND EYE HIGHLIGHTER in Shade: 03- Vanilla & Natural Taupe. I actually wanted shade: 2 but it was OOS and I had to pick this one.
NARS Foreplay Cheek Palette – Review and Swatches.
This is my first blog post (Editors note: First one she sent and I missed putting it up. 🙁) for one of my favorite people, Jeevitha’s Blog and I am very excited about it. Many don’t know that we share a secret bond and she is more of a nail art person than makeup. I love the way she does her nails. It makes her happy and relaxed 😛 Okay so I decided to review one of my favorite Blush palette from NARS. It is a Limited edition NARS Foreplay Cheek Palette which is no longer available.
WHAT COMPANY CLAIMS:
A chic cheek palette featuring four dazzling shades based on the bestselling Orgasm blush. The gorgeous afterglow of classic Orgasm is reinvented in this quad that combines Orgasm blush plus vivid shades of pink and peach and a shimmering gold to create your own signature glow.

The product I am reviewing today is something which is completely new and extraordinary available at MAC. Although these are from regular line but unfortunately we don’t get to see these here in INDIA. However, A Novel Romance Collection launches these Electric cool eye shadows in 7-8 different shades. This was the one I was most excited about. Many of them were out of stock on first day but somehow I managed to grab one in shade “SUPERWATT” 😀
