Five Friday Favorites #8.

Hey everyone 🙂

DSC04234123

It’s another Friday and another FFF post 😀

I’m using a lot of bath & body, skincare products, fragrances and even some basic makeup like liner, gloss, powder! Last 4-5 months of 2013 I literally used nothing, even my baths were boring 😦 but now I’m loving it all 😀

So this week’s favorites comprises of a mixed bag of stuff 😀

Firstly, the nail paint I wore this week, Faces sand coat in Tiramisu – I reviewed this nail paint this week. I’m really enjoying this shade and its finish 😀 more on this in the detailed post, Click here to read it 😀

The Body Shop Blue Corn Face Mask – I bought this face mask in November but got around to using it just this January. Though my skin is relatively less oily these days compared to what it is in summers *horror* 😮 but this mask still deep cleans my face so well and balances out the oils 😀 I’ll review this in detail only when I’ve used it more thoroughly!

The Body Shop Honeymania cream body scrub – this once has such an amazing texture 😀 I reviewed it here. I can even use this scrub daily 😛

Bath & Body Works Pink Chiffon fragrance mist – I bought so many fragrance mists that you saw in my BBW haul post. All of them are so awesome but I get confused which one to use and which not to 😛 so I take turns in using one for one week and so on. And this week it was this gorgeous Pink Chiffon that was my most used one! It’s such a sweet girly scent! ❤ and isn’t that bottle adorable? 😀

Revlon lip butter in Peach Parfait – This was my first Revlon lip butter and I loveeeee it so much. But amidst other new stuff, it takes a backseat now and then but I have kept it outside my makeup drawer these days not to forget using it 😛 I have already used more than half of it and would love to make this the first makeup product I finish completely 😀 I guess you all know about Revlon lip butters but a detailed review by me coming up this week!

So these were my five favorites from this week!

Don’t forget to share your favorites with me in the comments 🙂

On My Nails ~ Some coral sand & some bling.

DSC0382812

Hello everyone!

How many ages has it been that I shared with you what’s on my nails? 😦

To be honest, in these past 3-4months since my last On My Nails post, I’ve hardly had anything on my nails. Yes its true, the same girl who used to change her nail paint every week, sometimes even twice a week, has been living with bare nails for almost 3 months! Sigh! I put nail paint 2 times to be exact and both times I felt so blaahhh about it, I never thought about posting them here!

Faces Canada has launched their new Crystal Sandy Nail Lacquers, the new exclusive Ultime Pro Sand Coat. Faces held an event on 24th December in their flagship store in GK1 M-Block market, New Delhi.

I was lucky to attend this event and I had loads of fun. 🙂 I’m sharing some pictures from the event as well as some information about their newly launched nail lacquers.

The décor of the store for the event was based on the theme of sand/deserts going along with the new launch!

This ULTIME PRO SAND COAT nail lacquers are textured nail paints with a sand like finish on nails. These are one of the first textured nail paints I’ve tried and I’m really loving them 🙂 I guess these are also the first textured nail paints in the Indian market. So, I feel those who’ve not tried textured nail paints must give these a shot as they’ll be easily available on Faces counters priced at Rs.399.

The collection has 8 mesmerizing shades and all are named with names of international deserts.

The shades range from pastels to shimmery to full glitter shades!

All the shades look super gorgeous!

The Ultime Pro SAND COAT collections is a fun nail accessory that gives a sand grain like texture to your nails making it a perfect choice for modern day divas. It imparts a 3D effect to the nails that dry to a surprising matte finish giving a sugary sand feel.

At the event, we girls were treated with a “Nail Spa by Gurpreet”. I got a pretty coral shade from the Sand coat collection called “moon coat” along with some silver and gold glitter as an accent nail to add some festive cheer to my nails 😀 I loved the end result!

The Faces store in GK also had the skin care range and the accessories range by Faces which I feel are not available everywhere. They have quite a nice looking skin care range with dry body oils, body lotions and all.
