Ipsy Glam Bag March Review.

Hey everyone!

I really enjoy monthly beauty subscriptions! I wanted to subscribe to Ipsy since a long time and finally got to subscribe in February as a Valentine’s treat for myself 😛 but subscriptions for Feb were full quite fast and I finally got it for March.

And I got my first Ipsy glam bag yesterday!

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!

Vellvette box review – March 2013.

DSC017322

Hello everyone 🙂

I know I’ve not been regular since some time, I was just lacking inspiration to post anything, if that makes any sense!

So, I’m back with the March Vellvette Box. I know I know, it’s April now but I just got my box today!

I had seen many other March boxes that fellow bloggers’ had got, and it was the first time that I wasn’t excited at all to receive mine. I say this because the stuff everyone was getting didn’t appeal to me at all! When Vellvette started their sampling program, they had such an amazing selection of products with L’occitane, Crabtree & Evelyn, FE, Clinique, BBW, VS, Clarins etc. The brands they’ve got this time(Remy Laure, Meiji) are so unknown to me that they don’t look like luxury products even if they may be! Plus the similarity of products in all boxes is another thing I dislike. At first it seemed okay when they had similar products in the Feb box as they wanted to keep up with the theme, but now it’s irritating. There are other subscriptions too getting popular nowadays like Enchantess which have improved their quality so much but I never subscribed to them as I used to think that Vellvette is the best and it’s quality would never degrade but now I’m thinking maybe I just said that too soon! I still have April’s box before I subscribe again so I have another chance for Vellvette to woo me all over again! Don’t break my trust guys, I love you a lot!!!

Another thing I am really disappointed with is how late they deliver the boxes now! I clearly remember in October I had got the box on 20th, so why is the delivery getting so late since the past few months! In January they had some confusion with my box n it was delivered to me on 2nd Feb and now I got a call from them on 1st April saying that I will get my box this week and I have to pay 1199… helloo!! I’ve already paid for 3 months in Feb! Again some confusion!

I’ve been one of their first customers and have been subscribing since September(their first month) without fail. I’ve also got 5 of my friends subscribe to Vellvette. I wrote quite a bashing mail to the Vellvette team on 30th March when I still hadn’t received my box, and I got a reply from Kaushik from the Vellvette team saying that they have been facing a lot of problems with the Delhi orders and are now starting an office in Delhi and from April, all problems would be resolved! They also mentioned that I’m one of their earliest customers which I was assuming they didn’t acknowledge but now I’m happy and really hope they get back to their former glory super soon 🙂

NYX Rouge Cream Blush – Tea Rose.

According to NYX’s website,

More delicious than peaches and cream? We like to think so. Our velvety smooth mineral Rouge Cream Blush offers a sheer wash of radiant color. The glorious payoff is dewy, sultry and long-lasting. Available in 12 shades.

Price: USD6.75 and in India – INR650 for 3.5g on online sites. I bought it from medplusbeauty for Rs. 470/-

Available at most online stores and Sephora, Select Citywalk, New Delhi.

My experience:

I have never used a blush on a daily basis before this. And I really wanted to try using one. Having heard so much about NYX’s blushes I decided to give them a try. I got one each from the cream and powder blushes from the new year medplusbeauty sale. This blush costed me Rs.470/- for 3.5g which is quite a reasonable price.

Flakiessss nail paint , NOTD !!!!!

 
I’ve seen soooo many beauty bloggers rave about flakies nail paints. But here in india, I haven’t seen any flakies nail paint from any brand, except inglot! Inglot makes beautiful flakies, but they’re slightly expensive at INR 490. I’ve been searching everywhere for some reasonably priced flakies nail polishes which are also available easily. And then I had NYX to the rescue J and of course, UrbanTouch J
See here .
You can also check them out at other estores like violetbag.
In this range of nyx nail polishes, there are – pink avenue, peach avenue, purple avenue, blue avenue.
I got “Pink Avenue”.
Price: INR 297 for 0.5oz/14ml
Ok, for those who are not aware of what are flakies nail polishes. These are nail polishes, generally in a sheer base with a lot of multi colour particles which look like flakes and are duochrome in nature. They change colour in different lights. In short, they look beautiful J
I first found out about these when I saw them on Ankita’s blog here.
Warning: this post is picture heavy.I have used Elle 18 color bombs black nail paint as base.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 
I really wish nail paint brands in India too come up with flakies nail paints soonJ
I have super high hopes from colorbar and Maybelline(colorama). J
Till then guys go get this nyx one or the one from inglot because flakies are just super duper awesome J
