REVIEW & LOTD: NYX Round Lipstick in Rose

I love reviewing products. Why? Cause I love trying out new stuff and then judging and analysing them. Don't know but I guess it's just me :P So whenever I get myself a Haul I get sooo busy reviewing the "new" products that I totally forget the "older" products that I had bought earlier and are waiting to be reviewed. One such instance is the NYX Round Lipstick in "Rose". But Kannu from very kindly asked me to swatch this lippy for her and well then I realised that I could do a review with it as well :) So Kannu, thank you :)

The shade Rose is a very pretty and a vibrant shade of Pink almost bordering towards Fuschia. It's a fun color and looks really gorgeous when worn during the day as well as at night.

Comparison with Similar Product

This is a new section where I shall be comparing swatches of the reviewed product with similar other products so that you guys get a fair idea about the true shade :)
MAC Craving, NYX Rose, Colorbar Addictive Magenta, Maybelline Iced Orchid

Ooohhss And Aaaahhhhs!!!
1. Extra moisturising for the lips and hence does not cause dryness
2. Stays on for a decent length of time. For me it stays on for about 4-5 hours.
3. It fades to a pretty stain
4. The shade is really vibrant and happy!
5. If purchased directly from their site or anywhere in the US then they are really easy on the pocket!
6.Has a huge array of shades to choose from!

1. Has a kind of an artificial/synthetic smell though it disappears in seconds
2. They are really soft and hence melt if kept in a warm environment
3. Unavailability in India

It costs INR 395/-

I am not sure if I will be able to finish this tube!

Would I Recommend?
Oh yes I would surely recommend NYX Round Lipsticks! If you don't have at least a couple then you are missing out on life :P

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: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…
