Hi Everyone!!

Today I will be reviewing a nail polish by the brand Formula X. This brand was developed by Sephora, which is the biggest luxury beauty retailer in USA. I have never tried anything from them before and also I am not into glitter nail polish. But as a challenge I decided to buy a glitter nail polish from Formula X.

Product Review: Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids Lipcolor in Shocking Coral

Hi Everyone!!

Bold Lip colors is not everyone's cup of tea. I have always stayed loyal to warm toned lip colors but decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something bold. So for this experiment I chose Shocking Coral from Maybelline's ColorSensational Vivids Collection. So that is what I will be reviewing today.

What the company has to say about it:

Now bright goes gorgeous, never garish.
Brighter color from our exclusive vivid pigments.
Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar.

Why You'll Love It
Be bright and gorgeous.
  • Exclusive Vivid colors are brighter
  • Honey nectar formula nourishes lips
For Best Results
Apply lipcolor starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.

Product Review: The Body Shop's Tea Tree Face Mask

Hi Everyone!!

Since a little girl, I loved skincare. My friends and I used to experiment with homemade masks and review over Monday lunch break. Well I guess the little girl in me has refused to grow up :p And thanks to organic skin care brands, it has taken the obsession to a whole new level. Last night I tried Tea Tree Face Mask by The Body Shop for the first time and I adored it!!

What the company has to say about it:

This instantly cooling face mask cleanses, soothes and refreshes the skin.

  • Helps remove impurities
  • Absorbs excess oil
  • Soothes skin

I agree with all of the above!

Hi Everyone!

My eyeliner obsession has a new victim. This is the first time I have tried something from Jordana and I was really impressed.

Product Review: Nivea lip butter in Vanilla and Macadamia Kiss

Hi Everyone!

Today I will be reviewing Nivea's Lip butter in Vanilla and Macademia Kiss. Before dwelling in to the review, I would like to tell you a little about my lips. I have really really dry lips. So I have tried many lip balms over the course of years. I have never felt like splurging on higher end lip balms like Dior Creme de rose etc., because Nivea lip balms always had me covered, no matter which one I picked up. I think Nivea lip balms in-general are great. But this Nivea Lip Butter is just AWESOME!

Some of the product features:
  • Enriched with Shea Butter and Almond Oil
  • 16.7g/0.59oz. per container
  • Smells predominantly of Vanilla 
  • Costs $4(in USA) & Rs159(in India in alternate flavors)

Product Review: Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner

Hi Everyone

I never thought I would be able to do a winged eyeliner. I always envied the retro bollywood look of Sharmila Tagore but thought it was unachievable for me. But my notions were falsified by yet another maybelline baby. Introducing Maybelline Hyper Shape Liner. I love love love this little guy!!

Product Review: Maybelline Colossal Kajal

Hello everyone!!

Considering buying Maybelline Colossal Kajal? Look no more. Maybelline has done a wonderful job with this product, bringing a simple hassle free makeup product for us girls on a budget. Continue reading and you will know why I say this!!

Straight for my heart:

I prefer to use this product as an eyeliner rather than a kajal because I have sensitive eyes. As an eyeliner it is not too glossy, it is not too matte. It is just perfect. I have oily eyelids but it stays all day on my eyelid without smudging. It does not transfer to my upper eyelid during the entire day. For Rs. 175 what more can I ask for!!

This is a perfect product to take with you on the go. Throw it your handbag and you will be easily able to find it, thanks to its yellow packaging. It is a mechanical pencil, so need to mess around with a pencil sharpner. I think it is a must have in any girl's makeup collection!

Every evening after coming back home from work, I cleanse my face religiously, after which I don’t put any makeup on if I have nothing more planned for rest of the evening. But since I started using Colossal Kajal, I can’t resist wearing it in the evening and my husband loves it too. It makes me feel beautiful without feeling fake. It is like a natural extension to my eyes. 

I have steered a number of girls I know to this product, and they all have loved it. I am currently on my fourth stick, and I already have 2 backups.  If some day Maybelline decides to discontinue this product, I am sure will shed a tear or two. That’s how much I love it. I give it a thousand thumbs up. It will make you look beautiful without burning a whole in your pocket.
