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.
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.
They cost INR 325/- now but will be incresed to INR 395/- from 1st October 2011.
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!

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…
