Oriflame, Lotus, FabIndia and maXfactor made my Day

Hola! This week has been extremely lucky for me and I have got to share my makeup haul with you guys! Like I said in my previous post I was out shopping with Sucharita for her wedding when I picked up a few goodies for myself as well… And as luck would have it just yesterday my Oriflame consultant delivered the products I had ordered for last month :P And then my sister who was in an awesome mood because of getting her first salary this month gifted me something. So all in all it has been a great week for me so far ;)
So, here I go! Lemme list it out for you…
  1. Lotus Color Dew Nail Enamel – 920 Rose Petal
  2. Lotus Lip Balm – Cherry flavor
  3. maXfactor KOHL Pencil – 020 Black
  4. FabIndia SeaBuckThorn Moisturizer
  5. Oriflame SunCare Photostable Sun Lotion- SPF10
  6. Oriflame Visions Quick Dry Nail Polish – Silver Pink, Crushed Damson
  7. Oriflame Visions Quick Dry Top Coat
  8. Oriflame Visions Soul Mates Eye Shadow – Adam & Eve
Phew! Now that was quite a Haul Huh? :D
I was trying the Lotus brand for the first time in my life and I was totally blown away by the nail paints! Are they awesome or what? The consistency of the polish was on the thinner side but with two coats I was totally ready to go! It’s my third day with the polish on and not a single chip as yet… And the polish is so glossy! My nails look fresh as ever. Since the day I bought it I have been gushing like a fool :)
And the bottle is so pretty and elegant looking!

The Lotus lip balm on the other hand was so-so. I mean nothing really special. It met my expectations but certainly didn’t exceed it!
The maXfactor kohl on the other hand has me all singing praises… It is truly smudge proof and very very long stay!
FabIndia’s SeaBuckThorn moisturizer comes in this very cute bottle with a pump and looks really pretty on the dresser. The moisturizer is soothing and I found the smell ok ok. A bit overpowering.. but fresh!
Oriflame’s SunCare Photostable Sun Lotion is something my skin loves especially in the winters. It gives medium protection from the Sun and is oily. Oily skinned people might not really like it!
Oriflame’s Visions Quick Dry nail polishes are good. Very reasonably priced and give good coverage and are fast drying. My only qualm is that they don’t offer a variety of good shades. A rainbow of colors is available in the more expensive range of the oriflame product family.
Finally, the Visions Soul mate eye shadow Duo… Honestly, this is the first time I will be trying it out and so you guys would need to wait for a review :)
I promise to give an in-depth review with price and pics of each product in my upcoming posts :)

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

Ooooohss And Aaahhss!! 1. Really really stays on forever. 2. Doesn't smudge on my oily lids even after 8 hours of wear. 3. Friendly to the pocket 4. Faces have become quite easily available now. 5. They do not cause any allergies or reactions. 6. They are waterline safe a…

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
