Pink Glittery Champagne On My Nails!

DSC044991

Hey everyone 🙂

I came home to Delhi from Chicago for the summer vacations all sad and depressed, mainly because I haven’t been doing very well in my studies and also because I really wanted to do a good summer internship but I didn’t manage to get any 😦 then I got the chance to do a basic industrial training sort of thing in Delhi in a really good company for a month and I got excited and have now joined office last week. Its nothing special and it’s not like a real job but I’m still loving it coz I’m learning a lot and enjoying it 😀 and yes this is why I’ve been busy and unable to blog!

But anyway, I have quite some interesting product reviews all set to be posted 😀

About this post, well, just when I felt I was completely over glitter nail paints, Maybelline comes up with these gorgeous ‘Glitter Mania’ nail paints and they’re trending just about everywhere! Sigh! I had to go get atleast one and see what the hype is all about!

Five Friday Favorites #10

Hey everyone!

After a little long time, I’m back with my five Friday favorites.

DSC0439311v

L’Occitane repairing hair mask ~ I’ve been using the shampoo and conditioner from this range since quite some time and I got a few sachets of this repairing hair mask as samples with my purchase of the shampoo conditioner. Each sachet got me around 3-4 uses from it and I’ve been in loveeee with the hair mask. And now finally I’ve got around to buying the full size of this, it was super expensive and broke my heart when I bought it but the mask does give me really nice hair so well!!!

Forest Essentials Rose shampoo ~ I had just bought this small travel sized bottle to try during my visit to India in December as I am in the process of eliminating all sulphates from my hair care routine and this looked like a good sulphate free option! And now I wish I had bought the full sized bottle as this shampoo is lovely. It is very mild but cleans hair nicely and smells very nice too. The bottle is in such a bad state coz I had taped it a lot for my luggage 😛

Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream ~ I’m loving all three of these, and I’ve finished using the pomegranate one. I just reviewed these yesterday here!

Vaseline cocoa radiant body oil ~ this is so so so hydrating!!!! It makes my skin super soft and my skin even smells so good after using this! I will review it soon, before this winter ends!

Maybelline color bloom in peach blossom ~ I got around to using this again after a really long time! And aah as always I love these so much! Especially this peach one looks so natural and pretty on my lips:P I’ve reviewed this here.

These are my current favorites; do share your favorites with me in the comments below 🙂

 

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!
