HAUL: Colorbar and Maybelline

What better way to celebrate a new salary than to go shopping for something you love so dearly and are so passionate about? And yes I sure did celebrate my new
and went shopping! Yay! Honestly? I went to Colorbar to get myself their newly launched Lip Pot but got disappointed when they told me that they haven't yet got
them in stock :( So, in order to do away with my disappointment I "had to" buy some other stuff and so in the process got myself this haul :)


Here's a sneak peak at them and well you can also get an idea about the upcoming reviews now ;)
So here's a list...
1. Colorbar Blush in PLUM BROWN
2. Colorbar Eye Shadow in SPICY BROWN (review here)
3. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in SMOKY ROSE
4. Colorbar I-Glide Pencil in SILVER HUE
5. Maybelline Express Finish Nail Polish in PEARLY PASTEL
6. Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Gloss in HOOKED ON PINK


I had always wanted to get myself a Colorbar Blush (had heard such rave reviews bout it) and when I realised that I own…

REVIEW & LOTD: MAC Peacocky Collection Mega Metal Eyeshadow in Ego

When I first started blogging, I was totally swamped by the effect that MAC had or rather has on all beauty bloggers. 99.9% of them drooled and lusted over 99.9% of the MAC products and well I must say, I at the least was intrigued! I scoffed thinking on how was it even possible that MAC was a bonding force for beauty bloggers all over the world. So, not to be left out, I grudgingly walked into the only MAC counter in Pune, which actually is a pop-up store and bought myself my first MAC product... An eyeshadow called NOT Ego but Beauty Marked (well yes that's another story :P)... So anyways coming back to the present, after similar restricted and stupidly cautious purchases, now I can say that I have now upped the statistics of MAC lovers from 99.9% to 99.9009% :D Yay!
Let me say it... I AM IN LOVE WITH MAC... And listen to this... Last night while lying in bed, I told the guy (who else?) that I simply loved MAC. He actually sat up and exclaimed "babe me too&q…

Mixing Lipsticks to get new Lipsticks!

Today for a change, when I was craving for some new makeup, instead of buying some I actually MADE some! OMFG you heard it right! I MADE SOME NEW MAKEUP! LOL! :D Ok trust it wasn't really rocket science and it's not something I invented myself! The recipe to mix and make new lipsticks has been doing the rounds of the blogosphere for quite some time now. It's just that I finally got around doing something constructive... Well yes it partly because of the fact that it is the end of month and I am desperately waiting for my new paycheck to go out shopping :P Ah! the struggles in life I tell you! ;)
So anyways, what did I mix and how did I mix and what did I finally get? OK! first I sorted out the required and not required lipsticks that I have been stashing since quite sometime now and that's exactly how I came across the two likely candidates ripe for my experiment ;) Ta da... Ladies and gentlemen please meet MAYBELLINE Colorsensational in ICED ORCHID and Oriflame SEDUCT…

OOTD & LOTD: Love for the Nautical

Off late, I have been obsessed with all things Navy... Be it Nautical stripes or sailor collars or actually anything blue :) I did this look for the weekend when my guy took me out for a spin on his Royal Enfield 500cc... Oooohhh, the pleasures of life I tell you :P

The top is from Mango, denim shorts from Levi's and Osho flip-flops :)
For the make-up, I just put on some blue gel liner from INGLOT (83) and Maybelline Colorsensational 'Warm Me Up' Lipstick...

Just a random LOTD :)

Hello all my gorgeous readers :) I am back with an LOTD (yes the background process of trying out MAC fluidline is on and no I haven't forgotten bout my reviewing it :P)...
Well as the title suggests it to be just a random LOTD but well if truth be told this wasn't any random LOTD but a well thought out look that I wanted to do for a special occasion :) Well you see 12th was our 1 month wedding anniversary and we went out for sizzlers :D Yum yum yum :)

So cutting short to the chase, this is how I looked...


My make-up breakup (LOL) is as follows:
1. MAC Paint Pot in Indian Wood
2. Eye shadow from Coastal Scents 88 original palette
3. MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Craving
4. A random lip palette from Oriflame used as a blush :)

Ok and what was I wearing? Well you see in all the excitement I forgot to take any pics of my outfit but I shall still describe it to you guys :)
Black skirt from Mango
Peach crochetted lace top from Forever New
Black open stilettos from Inc.5

Let me k…

The Gel Eye Liner wars... MAC vs INGLOT vs MAYBELLINE

Well here I am with another review and this review ladies is not just another review... It is a review that attempts to bring Maybelline Inglot and MAC at par where there gel eye liners are concerned. Well you see, I haven't really been a gel liner girl... I started out with pencil kajals and liners and then graduated to liquid liners and have been really loyal to them ever since... But recently I ve been smitten with these gel eye liners thanks to all beauty blogs doing the rounds in the blogosphere and well I am HOOKED!!! You see when I say hooked I mean hook, line and sinker hooked, I mean not look at any other liquid liners and pencil liners hooked, I mean even scoff at non-gel users hooked!

Yes I am guilty of shifting my loyalties out of liquids and pencils to gels! I started out with Maybelline's Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner and was so impressed with gel liners that I actually continued using it for 5 straight months... Then I wanted to try out a …
