Hey guys!

I’m back with this week’s Five Friday Favorites. I hope you guys enjoy reading such posts as much as I enjoy writing them 😀

You must have seen in the news how Chicago(&other places) in US are facing extreme weather with some polar vortex which has hit these northern areas. I was so scared to come back in this weather. But the weather here is better and though there’s fresh snowfall almost every alternate day, it’s tolerable!

And for some weird reason, I’m actually enjoying this cold weather. Temperature these days remains in the range of -18/-12 to 0/1 degree Celsius! 😛

Hey everyone! How’re you all?

I’m keeping really busy these days and still adjusting to the life in Chicago!

I’ll definitely try to post once a week atleast, and then increase to twice slowly and then daily hopefully 😛

I hardly use any makeup since I’ve come here. No not even on any occasion or anything! Nil 😦

What I hauled this August!

Hey 🙂 how’re you all?

I know it’s a bit late to post the august haul but better late than never 😛

As I told you all in the previous post, I’m in Chicago and have shopped a bit ever since I came here. Okay, not a bit, but quite a lot 😛 I came here on 14th august, and this is all of what I bought in august as before 14th, I was too busy in packing and all to shop!

How to re-use your old gel eyeliner.

Hey everyone 🙂

How’re you all? The weather in Delhi is great at the moment, it’s raining heavily 😀

Today, I’ll show you how I got a new gel eyeliner in an old tub 😀

If you read all my posts, you would probably know how much I love gel eyeliners!

I have 8 gel eyeliners at the moment and I love all of them! My first was one bought in May last year and it was the Maybelline black and silver swirl one. This January, I was just playing around with all my liners and I dropped the black and silver one!!! Can you imagine how I must have felt! 😦 although it was old now and I had been using it very less that time, also it had become quite dry maybe due to the peak winters, but I was still very upset!

Thankfully, it survived the fall but there was a minor crack or rather dent on one side of the tub. My sister has this crazy thing in her mind and she has always wanted to mix up or swirl my gel eyeliners, even lip balms!!! And seeing this dent, she convinced me to let her swirl it up and she did it immediately with the eyeliner brush itself!!

At first I felt angry but then I tried using it and guess what, it felt amazingly creamy and smooth to use! Even creamier than when I first bought it! Believe me, it feels as creamy as MAC Fluidline. And now, it has been 6 months since this happened, and it’s still very creamy and extremely easy to use!

I am very happy I did this, since now I have such a soft liner to use as well as a different shade altogether! And you need to feel the creamy texture it has got now to believe this! it is just amazing!

But please note that when we did swirl it, it was not very hard, it did have a certain softness in it. But the best thing is that due to this swirling, it has retained that moisture for such a long time! Maybe it just got a lot of air in it, you know like whipped cream, something like that has happened to my liner I’m guessing!

So, I recommend you all to try it. If any of your gel liner has become a little hard or dry, first soften it up a bit, by keeping it in some hot water for some time. And then just take your eyeliner brush or maybe a toothpick or something and give it a good mix!!! I hope it works for you all! I don’t think you’ll be able to do this if the liner has become a total rock, but maybe you can still try after softening it!

I am going to try it with my Inglot gel eyeliner which has become very hard just after 6-7 months 😦

Do let me know if you try this and please share the link with me if you share pics of your liner!:)

Have a happy weekend!

Another monthly favourites post!

This month was a very emotional month! My college farewell took place and it was the last month of college, its kindof hard to accept that college is over! Spent four memorable years here and made amazing friends!

Between all this and my final practicals, project presentation and the extreme heat in Delhi, I hardly used makeup this month and had absolutely no time to try new stuff!
