As promised I am here with my giveaway ladies and if you ask me as to why am I doing this giveaway then I could give you vague answers like "It was my birthday three days ago" or "My blog is a year old" or "I have crossed 100 followers mark" etc... But the truth is that I am doing this giveaway because I love you guys (seriously!) and I am extremely thankful to all of you for supporting my blog and helping me improve in makeup along the way :)
As I had told you guys earlier, I have rounded up a list of my favorite or go-to products that I would love for you to have. I have reviewed most of these products and those that I haven't reviewed as yet will be reviewed soon :) Do note that the giveaway mainly consists of my favorite products from my favorite brands that include Colorabr, Faces, Maybelline and Oriflame :)
L-R: Faces Kajal, Faces Eye-shadow brush, Faces Shadow Brush #07, Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Peach Tango, Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipsticks in "Luscious Lilac" and "Chestnut", Faces Eye Sparkle Dust in "Gold", Colorbar Nail Lacquer in "Extrovert", Maybelline Express Finish Nail Polish in "Pearly Pastel", Oriflame Very Clickit Eye Liner Duo in Black and Brown, Oriflame Very Me Clickit Lip stain/gloss duo, Colorbar Blush in "Plum Brown"
Here's a detailed list of products that are a part of the giveaway and yes the rules to participate in the giveaway will follow that :)
1. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Peach Tango: It is no new news that I love 
    Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks and own a variety of shades in thsi range. They are 
    matte lipsticks but are still very moisturizing and not at all drying. They stay on for a 
    very long duration and well most of the shades in this range suit the Indian Skin tone 
    to the tee...
    I have reviewed the following Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipsticks as of now:
2. Colorbar Nail Lacquer in Extrovert: Colorbar's Nail Lacquers are yet another of my 
    favorite. They stay on for long, give really good coverage to the nails and the range has 
    a huge variety of shades to choose from :)
     I have reviewed/used the following Colorbar Nail Lacquers till now:

3. Colorbar Blush in Plum Brown: This is my HG blush and is so flattering to the 
    Indian skin tone that it is a must have blush for everyone. Yes it could be a bit too 
    dark for people with skintones below NC20 though!   
    It is a finely milled blush, stays for long and does not contain nay shimmer/glitter.
     I have reviewed it here:

4. Faces Cosmetics Kajal: This is like my most recent purchase and this is one kajal 
    purchase that I just do not regret. It has an intense color payoff, is buildable, smudges 
    very little and is waterproof. I have been personally using it since the past few days.
    I have reviewed it here:

5. Faces Cosmetics Sparkle Dust in Shade 02 Gold: This is like my most favorite 
    golden eye shadow. I had bought it to do my wedding make-up and it has become an 
    essential part of my make-up case especially when I get ready for some wedding 
    functions or festivals. It has the right amount of sparkle, blends easily, does not fade 
    away and stays for a long time.
     I have reviewed it here:

6. Faces Cosmetics Eye Shadow brushes: I have been using Faces shadow brushes 
   since a long time now and till date I have never had the opportunity to complain even 
   once. The bristles are soft, do not shed and do their work extremely well. Basically, 
   there are three favorite Faces eye-shadow brushes of mine but there were only two of 
   them available as of now :(
    I haven't yet reviewd these brushes, but I will review them for sure in a couple of days :)

7. Maybelline Express Finish Nail Polish in Pearly Pastel
    Ok, this is one product that I don't own but with the express finish and fasr drying 
    claim and a pretty candyfloss color how wrong can you actually get? :) The shade 
    Pearly Pastel is so pretty and so sheer that it would look beautiful on its own as well 
    as a top coat over a darker shade :) Maybe you could send in a review to 
    isimplylovemakeup ;)

8. Maybelline Colorsensational  Moisture Extreme Lipsticks in Chestnut 
    The Colorsensastion Moisture extreme lippies from Maybelline don't really need any 
    introduction cause they are those rare lippies that are creamy, moisturizing, highly 
    pigmented and have a pretty decent staying power. These lippies are a staple in 
    everyone's vanities and are "go-to" lipsticks for many :) I haven't yet reviewed my 
    collection of moisture extreme lipsticks but I will surely do one soon :)

9. Oriflame Clickit Eye Liner Duo in Brown and Black: The moment I came across 
    this concept, I was hooked. It is a dual ended stick, with black eye liner at one end 
    and a brown one on the other. The highlight of the product is the applicator brush, 
    which is thin and sturdy and makes making precise lines a breeze. The liquids are 
    smudge proof but not waterproof and have very intense pigmentation. I have not 
    reviewed this product on my blog.

10. Oriflame Clickit Lip Gloss/Stain Duo:  Red stain and Raspberry gloss  
     This again is in the dual ended stick form with a red lip stain on one end and a pink 
     Raspberry gloss on the other :) It's a very convenient combo and I especially love the 
     red stain. It is an orange based red that smells and tastes yummy sweet. The stain 
     stays on for quite sometime and I do plan on reviewing it

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

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…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
