My perfect red lipstick

Red lipstick look

 

For the longest time, I was the girl who stays far far away from any kindof lipstick. Heck even lip glosses used to irritate me. Back then I could not even imagine that there would be a day when I would be so head over heels in love with red lipstick. Yes red, bright in your face red lipstick, Aah the beauty!

Hey everyone!

How are you all doing today? It was hot as high as 95F last 2 days here, and now it is raining crazily! Ah, well!

I’ve been using these Maybelline vivid matte lip colors since around 3 weeks now. And I’m sharing my experience with you guys now, it’s not exactly a full detailed review, but a small post about what I liked and didn’t like about these!

Five Friday Favourites #3

Hey everyone!

DSC0360134

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!

DSC034141bh

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!

Budget Makeup Starter Kit.

Hello everyone 🙂

Here we go with another long pending post from my drafts!

These days all girls want to look their best and simple makeup just helps them achieve the right look. But not everyone can afford high-end makeup, and that shouldn’t discourage anyone as these days there is a plethora of good-quality options out there in the market at various prices!

My first may haul :D

I mentioned about this haul in the previous post!

This haul wasn’t planned at all but I’m loving everything I bought yesterday 🙂

I was at DLF promenade with my sister and we wanted to buy something for our mom for Mother’s day and in turn bought stuff for ourselves too 😛

DSC02206

We got the Inglot slim gel lipstick in shade#58 for mom. It’s a gorgeous dark red shade, I’ll swatch it for you guys soon 🙂

I also for a freedom system concealer refill for myself. Its cost is Rs.250 but right now it’s on 30% discount.

Then I checked out the MAC Archie collection! I badly wanted the Kiss & don’t tell lipglass(Rs.1100) and imagine my luck when I found that shade is still in stock BUT I didn’t buy it! I just walked out of the store leaving the lipglass and the petrol blue liner, the most gorgeous two things ever! 😦 self-control its called!

To make myself feel better, I went to newU to check out lipglosses in other brands to see if I can find any similar to kiss& don’t tell. And I bought two lip glosses-

Colorbar Tru gloss in shade Radiant Pink. (Rs.495)

Lakme absolute lip gloss in shade Candy shine.(Rs.450)

I felt so good later that I bought 2 glosses with money less than one MAC gloss. 😀 Thank God I resisted myself at the MAC store.

I also got a newU nail paint(Rs.50) and the Palmolive thermal spa body wash(Rs.125), I’ve read so many people raving about this, I just had to try it.

And finally! Oh yes, I got the Forest Essentials lip balm(Rs.495). Because it’s got the most awesome packaging in the world! I won’t show you more pictures right now, wait for the review 😀

DSC022021

And let me tell you how the Forest Essentials people pack your shopping. They took a piece of butter paper, sprayed it with perfume, and wrapped this tiny lip balm box in that paper. Then put it in their FE paper bag and sprinkled flower petals in the bag. That bag smells so heavenly I can’t tell you 🙂 This was my first brush with the brand and I’m in love with Forest Essentials! Would definitely be going back for more stuff! 🙂

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!
