Five Friday Favorites #6

Hey everyone!

As you all know by now, I’m at my home in India right now for vacations. Ofcourse I haven’t got all my bath, body and makeup stuff.

So the products I’ve been using are either ones I’ve bought here or the ones I had left at home or what I’ve got for my sister from the US or the ones my sister bought when I wasn’t here. And my favorites too are from those products!

Five Friday Favourites #3

Hey everyone!

Eid Mubaarak to all of you! 🙂 how are you celebrating Eid? We have very close family friends who are Muslim and throw a huge party for Eid everytime and sadly we couldn’t go this time and aahh.. I’m already missing the chicken biryani 😦

I know I’ve been very inactive of late and so sorry I haven’t been able to reply to all comments. I’ll be even more inactive next week onwards; I have a few posts timed for publishing in my drafts but I didn’t want to miss the Five Friday Favourites and here I am 😀

So, first up is The Body Shop Coconut Hair oil ~ my hair is going through a very bad phase; the rain is making it even frizzier and worse! 😦 this oil is giving my hair all the extra love it needs! Initially I had a lot of samples of this oil but I finally purchased the full bottle last week and I’m loving this oil much more than my normal hair oil!

Revlon lip butter in Sorbet ~ I really really love Revlon lip butters and this new shade is a gorgeous bright pink. It really makes my face look very bright and pretty! Love!

The Body Shop Vanilla body mist ~ I have always had a soft spot for all things vanilla and recently this mist has made a comeback in my favourite scents! I just wish it were travel friendly! Full review here.

MAC Technakohl Graphblack ~ I had this on my wishlist forever as I’d read amazing reviews for its good staying power on the waterline and I’m someone who’s always on the lookout for something that stays long on my waterline. Though my all time favourite for the waterline is the Lakme kohl ultimate but I’m loving this one at the moment!  

Lakme CC Cream ~ this gives a good natural semi-matte finish and reduces redness very well! I’m definitely enjoying using this a lot!

So, that’s it for this week!

I would love to know your favourites so do share them in the comments below! 🙂

See you! Have a great weekend! 

Five Friday Favourites #2

Hey everyone!

I am really sorry I haven’t been regular since some time; I am really caught up in a lot of stuff! But I promise I’ll be back with regular posts soon!

Today, I am back with this week’s edition of Five Friday Favourites 🙂 I had quite a busy week and the weather was overly humid so didn’t wear a lot of makeup!

I loved these five things this week and sharing them with you all here –

DSC034141

Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips talk lipstick. I won this in Cynthia’s giveaway last month and received it last week! Ah just look at the pretty thing! It is so gorgeous. Since I’m in a huge coral phase at the moment, I chose a coral shade. It’s a very pretty shade, it kindof washes me out but I top it with some different coloured gloss and it remains coral but becomes prettier!!! Loving it 🙂

L’Occitane Pivoine Flora lip shine in shade Peche Farandole. I picked this up in the recent 50%off sale at L’Occitane and I absolutely love it! It’s an amazing lip gloss and the shade is just my kindof everyday shade! Do check out the sale, they still have a lot of stuff in stock online!

Next the Forever 21 jewellery; I got them last to last week I think! The smaller one is a bracelet and I bought it for… wait for it… Rs.99!! Yes, without any sale! And the other is a neckpiece and I got it for 179 bucks! Aren’t the prices insanely amazing?!!! I love the new F21 store at Saket! 😀

Lakme Kohl Ultimate. I try so many kohls all the time but I keep coming back to this! I’ve been using it since a year now and it would have gotten over by now had I used only this, but I keep switching with others and so this is still a little more than half left. I love it and always will! You can read my full review on it here.

The Face Shop Hand Cream. I have been stopping myself to buy one of these since Sephora opened up in Delhi first! On my last visit I just couldn’t resist myself and finally indulged!! Isn’t this the most adorable thing ever? Awww… ❤ and it smells really nice too!

Have you used any of these? Do you like them? And what were your favourites this week? Do share your views in the comments below!

Love you all!

Another month over! Phew! This was a fun month for me and also a month which has taken a few major decisions of my life. I’ll share them with you once they’re finalized 🙂

I am sorry for not being regular since some time, my laptop was giving me major trouble and it finally crashed on Friday 😦 All my data is in it so can’t post anything right now, thankfully I had already completed this post and it was in the drafts to be posted at the end of the month!

I had a lotttt of favourites this month, as you can see!

REVIEW,SWATCHES: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal.

DSC01379

Lakme eyeconic kajal.

According to Lakme,

The new Eyeconic Kajal by Lakmé is literally iconic as all you need is one sweep of kajal and it lasts for 10 hours. The product is waterproof, it doesn’t smudge and it is even safe for the eyes since it is dermatologist tested. The Eyeconic kajal and mascara by Lakmé forms the perfect combination in creating a look that is sure to get you noticed!  You can now transform your look from drab to fab with just a little kajal and a hint of some mascara.

Price: INR 199/-

Available at Lakme counters, most general stores, online stores.

My experience:

I had bought this kajal 2 months back but got around to using it regularly just since the last 2 weeks. And to be honest I did not have any expectations from this since it’s similar to Maybelline Colossal and I had never liked that one but I am in love with Eyeconic 😀

I have never really liked retractable/twist up pencils. I like the traditional sharpenable pencils mainly because they’re more hygienic and I can apply as much pressure on them without breaking unlike retractable pencils. Now Lakme eyeconic has changed my view, I guess my bad experiences with retractable pencils were just because I chose the wrong pencils in the past. But for me, they were always prone to breakage, tugged on my eye and became blunt after a few usages. Eyconic is none of these!

REVIEW,SWATCHES: Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencil – Solid Black.

Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencil – Solid Black.

DSC00817

According to Faces,

Soft gentle pencils in a rainbow of shades. Use them to enhance your natural eye color for dramatic effect or give you that bright-eyed glow. Gentle and safe for sensitive eyes.

Price:  INR349/-

Available at Faces counters and outlets.

My experience:

I have 4 of these Faces pencils and I love all 4 of them sooo much 😀 According to me, these were the most affordable and best quality eyeliners at Rs.249 but Faces has recently increased the prices to Rs.349 making them not the most affordable pencils around 😦 I really wish I had bought all the shades while the price was still less, a few online stores still have them at the lower prices so grab them while you can 😀
