REVIEW & LOTD: MAC Peacocky Collection Mega Metal Eyeshadow in Ego

When I first started blogging, I was totally swamped by the effect that MAC had or rather has on all beauty bloggers. 99.9% of them drooled and lusted over 99.9% of the MAC products and well I must say, I at the least was intrigued! I scoffed thinking on how was it even possible that MAC was a bonding force for beauty bloggers all over the world. So, not to be left out, I grudgingly walked into the only MAC counter in Pune, which actually is a pop-up store and bought myself my first MAC product... An eyeshadow called NOT Ego but Beauty Marked (well yes that's another story :P)... So anyways coming back to the present, after similar restricted and stupidly cautious purchases, now I can say that I have now upped the statistics of MAC lovers from 99.9% to 99.9009% :D Yay!

Let me say it... I AM IN LOVE WITH MAC... And listen to this... Last night while lying in bed, I told the guy (who else?) that I simply loved MAC. He actually sat up and exclaimed "babe me too"... A
lot of thoughts rushed through my mind... Is the guy I married gay? (no offense really!), does he actually use cosmetics behind my back? Has he lost it? So I asked him gently "baby what makes you love MAC so much?"... And what does he reply... "Babe have you any idea about the capabilities of the MAC OS X?"... I need not say no more... But at least we as a couple bonded over MAC even though it is based on a misunderstanding... Sighhh!!! The torments in life I tell you :P (Ikya, this is especially for you)...
So anyways, coming back to the review :) My latest acquisition in MAC eye-shadows is EGO from the Peacocky Collection's Mega Metal Eye-shadows range. It is a mossy forest-green shade with fine shimmer that gives not glitter but a delicate and sophisticated sheen to the eyeshadow when applied :) Wow! I can actually wax lyrical about this particular product.

Before I go any further with my review, let me inform you all that from this review on I am introducing a new template for all my review posts so as to make it easy for all my gorgeous readers (yes y
ou!) to make your decisions and get a clear view of my review (ok that sounded odd)...
So here goes...

Image of the productSwatchesLOTDOooohs and Aahhhs!
1. MAC doesn't require introductions, but still one word... AWESOME
2. The shade is gorgeous
3. Subtle and beautiful color pay-off without any base and a deep and mesmerizing color pay-off with MAC Painterly Paint Pot as base.
4. Negligible fall-out and I mean NEGLIGIBLE
5. No creasing.
6. Stays on like forever. I put it on at around 7:00 pm, then cleaned the house, cooked dinner, went for a movie, had dinner, went off to sleep w/o removing my make-up (bad girl Suma!) and then woke up in the morning at 8:30 am and it was still there INTACT! I rest my case.
7. No reactions but then you already know that! ;)
8. Bigger and more product in this eye shadow range than the permanent collection ones.
1. Expensive? Yes!

It costed me INR 1350/-

If it gets over then YES but that has a chance of 1 in a zillion :P

Would I recommend?
Are you kidding me? Yes of course!

Overall Rating:
Let me know if you have tried this eyeshadow? If yes, I would love it for you guys to share your LOTDs or EOTDs with me and I'll post it here with of course due gratitude and recognition :) How PR"y" I sound here!

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.

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…
