REVIEW & LOTD: Colorbar Eye-shadow in Spicy Brown

I have never been in love with brown as much as I am nowadays and I must say that it's all thanks to Colorbar's Eye-shadow in SPICY BROWN that I purchased like a couple of days before :) I have always loved eye popping neons and bright eye-shadows and so it's a huge shocker for me that I actually gravitated towards and finally bought a brown eye-shadow! And since the day I bought it, I have been only wearing this shade everywhere. Will you believe it if I tell you that I have paired this brown shadow with a navy blue ensemble, a black ensemble and a yellow ensemble? Well yeah talk about obsession! :P

Take a look at the LOTD I did with it...
For this look, I have paired Colorbar Spicy Brown with FACES Loose Sparke Dust in Golden. The lipstick that I have on is Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in HOT HOT HOT (review here) and blush that I have used is Colorbar blush in Plum Brown.
This eye-shadow impressed me with the fact that it is an extremely versatile shade (yes brown can be versatile) and trust me when I say that I have tried EOTDs pairing Spicy Brown with yellow, mossy green, golden, Black (yes black!), Dark Blue and Purple! One just needs to let their imagination run wild :D This eye-shadow comes in a very cute and an innovative packaging. It has two compartments. The top compartment of the pot is where the real product is, the lower compartment contains a teensy mirror and a tiny, bent sponge applicator. This as you all already know is a signature packaging of Colorbar cosmetics. Their blushes also come in similar cases.

Oooohs and Aaahhhs!
1. The color is warm and pretty and like I said very versatile.
2. The texture is very smooth and application is a breeze.
3. Doesn't have any chunky glitter but a nice sheen/glaze.
4. Very less fall out. Do note that I haven't said negligible ;)
5. Well pigmented. Not much of a difference between using and not using a base under it.
6. Stays on for long and doesn't really budge for at least 8 hours straight.
7. Very comfortable to the pocket ;)
8. Cute packaging.

1. Very limited colors in this range. I mean do they really expect me to be content with only 6 shades?!!!
2. The bent applicator provided with the shadow is pretty useless because of its size and shape!

It costs INR 250/-

Yeah sure I'd buy the other shades available in the range.

Would I recommend?
Oh yes of course especially to beauties on a budget

Overall rating

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…
