Maybelline The Colossal Kohl - Turquoise || Review and Swatches

Hi All!!

Summer calls for colors. I love how us Indians embrace colors and cosmetics company launching new colorful eyeliners allow us makeup crazy girls to experiment and enjoy colors. Maybelline recently launched The Colossal Kohl - Turquoise. I love their Colossal Kohl. I have used up around 5-6 Colossal Kajals, and I always have a backup or two of that kohl with me. Since the traditional Colossal Kohl has been a staple in my makeup routine, I was very excited when I got my hands on the new Turquoise color. I love colored eyeliners. They add something extra to the eye makeup. If you wear it alone, it is enough to get you by, on its own. Colored liners are definitely worth a try.

Lakme Absolute Plum & Shine 3D Lip Gloss in Orchid Shine || Review and Swatches

Hi All

Today I will be reviewing my first product from Lakme. I know it would come as a surprise that having been lived in India all my life I have never used any Lakme makeup. When I was little my mother used to buy Lakme moisturizers every winter, but I never liked them as they made me very oily. I also tried their face washes I found them to be very drying for my skin. I was never impressed by their old makeup range anyways. That mental block kept me from trying their new ranges. My mother-in-law bought Lakme Absolute Plum & Shine 3D Lip Gloss in Orchid Shine and that is when I got to try the product for myself and I must say I am impressed.

Milani Runway Eyes Fashion Shadows in Designer Browns || Review and Swatches

Hi Everyone!!

I hauled an eye shadow palette from Milani (Click HERE to read my Milani Haul blog post). I bought Milani Runway Eyes Fashion Shadows (in color number 01, Designer Browns)The organization of the shadows of this palette and the not-so-pretty packaging is the reason I never tried any eye shadow palettes from Milani. I picked it up because the colors looked really pretty and wearable. I have used it for a few events this past month and have been loving the soft looks that I created both for day and night. I will be reviewing this palette today in this post.

Sneak Peak: Rimmel Show off Lip Lacquer in Apocaliptic and Stellar

Hi All!

Here is a sneak peak of two Rimmel Show off Lip Lacquers that I will be reviewing this weak. In my opinion, Show off Lip Lacquers are one of the best products in Rimmel's product portfolio. I reviewed the color Celestial HERE which is a beautiful everyday dusty pink color. But this range has some amazing bold colors at an affordable price (Rs 475 / $5.49). The color stellar is a bright corally pink color and the color Apocalyptic is hot pink color and both of them are absolutely beautiful. Summer is the perfect time to go bold with your lip color choices. The warm undertones of their lip colors make them quite wearable for a variety of skin tones and colors.

Maybelline ExpertWear Shadow Quad in Sandstone Shimmer || Review & Swatches

Hi All!

Today I will be reviewing an Eye Shadow Palette from Maybelline. I have tried their Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow quad in Copper Chic and loved it. Read the review HERE. I saw ExpertWear Shadow Range many times in the store but was never sure if I liked it enough to try it. But the plum and golden color of this palette enticed me so I bought this palette.
