LOTD: My Signature Monsoon Makeup Look





 

My Signature Monsoon Makeup Look


Monsoon isn't one of my favorite seasons and I don't make a secret out of it... I mean I think most you all by know how much I hate the rainy season... But well I cannot really do anything about it now, can I? So I have ways to get around the gloominess of the season and here's how I do it with makeup :)

REVIEW: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Green




 

Review of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Green


The past couple of months have been crazy in terms of office workload and hence unhealthy sleeping patterns, family weddings and hence unhealthy eating patterns and well laziness... And so last week when I weighed myself to be 60 kg (I am 5'3.5") I almost freaked out and have been on a strict dietary regimen ever since. More about it in detail in an upcoming post...

NOTD: Maybelline Color Show Nail Paint in Coral Craze


Guest Post By: Priyanka

Hey there!
When it comes to nail paints I tend to be very adventurous. I have a wide array of blues, blacks and reds but somehow I always consciously stayed away from staid colours like pearly whites, peaches and corals but the nail paint I am now going to review is a coral. Not just any staid coral but a bright summery flamboyant coral that is sure to make your summer weary heart sing!
Read on to see if the product pleased me as much as the colour did.

I really didn’t know how anyone could wear nudes on their nails. I have never worn them and never ever had an urge to wear them too. I was never sure how this would look on my hands. I always thought these shades were meant for super fair hands. But as everybody says there is always a first time and so it’s here too.

NARS Blush in Exhibit A - Photos, Swatches and FOTD


Not a long time ago, looking at my beauty dresser, I was told by a (spiteful) woman that she never wore makeup because "thankfully she was naturally beautiful"... Well it hurt at that time but I am glad I didn't take it to heart because gradually I saw her immersing herself into makeup so much that today she seems to be almost drowning in it... And I am glad I didn't listen to her, because if I did then I wouldn't have been an excitedly, proud owner of this wonderful thing called NARS Blush in Exhibit A

Mini Kryolan Haul





 

A Mini Haul from Kryolan



You know those times when you plan to curb your shopping impulses, promise yourself that you will not step into any store and even keep your wallet devoid of any cash so as to not get tempted? And then you know the times when in spite of all measures you end up giving in to temptation and end up getting things you don't require...
Well yes that is what happened to me...

Coffee Breaks With ISLM: Are You A Muscular Woman?





 

Are You a Muscular Woman?


Guest Post By: Priyanka 

I am sure many of you have heard the constant refrain of certain elders along the lines of “Stop lifting weights! Do you want to be muscular like a man?” or maybe a “You will cause your reproductive system serious harm if you lift dumbbells!”
The worst part? This archaic thought process is not limited to uneducated woman. The latter was by a very intellectual 60 year old female who is a former International Law professor in a world renowned university.

At the moment my nails are bare, I have not one speck of makeup on my face and my hair is greasy, falling limp on my shoulders... This is a nightmare situation for me but I still don't do anything to rectify it... Why?
Why, you ask me and the reason is simple...

I am TIRED...

Review of Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Fatal Red


Guest Post By: Priyanka

Hey!
As far as I am concerned a cat’s eye flick with a retro red lip is the most iconic makeup look. Damned be the fools who think that red lipstick means one is easy!
Inspired by Audrey Hepburn I decided to go the classic red lip way when college began. There onwards, there was no looking back. I have owned numerous red lipsticks and every time I go lippie shopping, my eyes are always drawn to that indomitable crimson nestled between subtle browns.
