REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Sparkle Dust in Gold (Shade 2)

This post has been long due from my side and I have somehow always shelved reviewing this product even though it is my HG loose pigment in a golden shade. Whenever I need to use a golden eye-shadow I automatically turn towards it, it is such a favorite of mine :)
This product is called Faces Sparkle Dust in Shade 2... It is beyond me why Faces refuses to name their shades... Remembering numbers and co-relating them to shades is like quite difficult :(
I bought it when I was preparing, collecting and buying cosmetics that I needed to do my wedding make-up. You know how Indian weddings are with glittery lehengas, sarees, "glitterier" jewellery and of course "loud" make-up to go with it all, don't you? Indian brides are literally transformed into a Goddess :) So then obviously I needed a golden eye-shadow for my make-up :) And it just couldn't be any shade of Golden!!! It had to be a bright, glittery and very sparkly golden. But you see I am not really a very OTT person and I prefer things subtle and more subdued, so I had this huge inner turmoil thing going on inside of me as to what kind of a golden I should go for. But then I stumbled upon this beauty... And I was charmed... Charmed for life :)
This shade of golden sparkle dust was like wow! It was perfect! it was glittery but still had a subtle effect... I don't know how to explain in to you guys :) Maybe an LOTD will help :) The golden has an orange-ish tinge to it and it really looks very pretty when applied on the eyes. It looks gorgeous as a smokey look like I have done <here>, it looks really pretty on it's own and it looks gorgeous when blended with another complimenting shade too... What more could I ask for?

Oooohs and Aaahhhhs!
1. A wonderful golden shade. Goes with almost all Indian outfits excepting ones in silver (duh!)
2. Lasts really long though I have always used it over MAC Painterly Paint Pot.
3. Very good pigmentation.
4. Even though it's in a loose pigment form, I have never noticed any fall out. It could be in my technique too :P
5. The particles are really fine and contains no chunky or tacky glitter.
6. Blends like a dream.
7. Never caused me any allergies or reactions.
8. Inexpensive
9. Contains a lot of product.
Ouches!
1. It's in a loose pigment form and many may have difficulty using it if they are not used to it.
Price
It costs INR 250/-
Repurchase?
If I finish it then yes of course, if not then I will surely go for other shades in this range :)
Would I recommend it?
Are you kidding me? Do I really need to answer that after I have been practically raving about it this whole post? :P
Yes of course I recommend it :)

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…
