REVIEW: Lakme Absolute Moonlit Highlighter

My next in line for review from the Lakme Absolute range was the baked eye shadows but because of popular demand I am jumping to review the Moonlit Highlighter first. When I first approached the Lakme counter, I was in double minds about purchasing the highlighter or the bronzer, but once I swatched both of them I realised that buying the highlighter was a better bet than the bronzer. Why? Three reasons, one is that the darker shade in the highlighter duo is very similar to the lighter shade in the bronzer. Second, the darker shade in the bronzer is really dark for my skin-tone. I am NC35-36 and I dont think I would ever wear the darker shade in the bronzer duo. The lighter shade suits me :) Thirdly, I already own the bronzer from the Lakme Fantasy collection and well didn't want another one from the same brand :P 
So, anyways coming back to the highlighter in question, I am really very impressed with it. It instantly lights up my complexion and gives a subtle glow to my skin when applied "strategically" :D Contrary to popular belief, even though it is shimmery, it can be very comfortably work during the day. I wear it to office even! :P

As far as the texture goes, it is really soft and smooth and has really fine glitter particles. I use it on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, on my cupid's bow and vertically on the middle part of my under chin area and it does its job like magic :) The darker shade of the highlighter duo can be used for contouring :) Sighhh I was always wanted a multitasking duo like this one :)

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.
