REVIEW & SWATCHES: Colorbar I-Glide Pencils

I have been really lazy lately, so much so that I have been shelving writing a post about Colorbar's I-glide pencils, can you even imagine that? I-Glide pencils are like these highly respected pencils in the beauty blogosphere, so much so that no Indian beauty blog is complete without at least one post on these pencils, be it a review or even a swatch post. And I had the audacity to actually completely ignore posting about these pencils!!! LOL! But yesterday when my co-sister got me two more of these I-Glide pencils, I knew it was high time I wrote a post about these miracles.
Now if you have been regular on beauty blogs especially the Indian sites, you will have already known that Colorbar has come out with four new shades in these pencils and well don't we beauties just love options? The more the better isn't it? :)
So anyways, the I-Glide pencils that I now own are:
1. Silver Hue 001
2. Prunella 005
3. Flirty Turquoise 007 (new)
4. Coal Mine 009 (new)
There isn't much inroduction that these pencils need. They are super fabulous pencil eye liners that are smudge proof, very smooth and offer very good pigmentation. Anything that I say will be less :)
These pencils are essentially for the upper lashline and I would not recommend using them as a "kajal" on the waterline as they burn and cause irritation if it touches the inside of the eye, but they are perfectly safe for the lashline on the upper lids.

Oooohhss and Aaaahhhss!
1. Highly Pigmented
2. Smudge-proof and does not budge till you really don't want to wash it off with your make-up remover.
3. Does not cause any allergies or reactions.
4. Very creamy and glides on smoothly
5. It is water-proof so crying with these on isn't really an issue!
6. Even though it is in pencil form, it is not made out of wood (I hate wooden eye pencils!). It is made out of some kind of fibre, which doesn't spill gritts in the eyes and also sharpen smoothly.
7. Staying power is really high.
Ouches!
1. It gets blunt pretty fast and needs to be sharpened often, which leads to a lot of product wastage.
2. The price is on the higher side.
Price
They cost INR 325/- now but will be incresed to INR 395/- from 1st October 2011.
Repurchase?
Yes definitely!
Would I Recommend?
This is one pencil that is a must in every girl's vanity case as they are very practical pencils that come in a variety of jewelled shades!
Overall Rating
9/10

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…

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: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
