Some Upcoming Reviews

Hello my readers :) I have been missing in action these few days and well I regret to inform you guys that I will be slow in doing my posts for another week or so... Am going to Delhi for a mini vacation and well I do plan to shop a lot there ;) So you guys can be rest assured that there will be a rush of product reviews coming your way for sure!!!

Btw I went to Mumbai this weekend and picked up some stuff from Colorbar from an Health and Glow outlet. They have this offer going on that on a purchase of Rs. 500/- you get to pick a Nail Paint of your choice for free!!! LOL.. So here's what I picked up and stay tuned for some upcoming reviews! :)


 Also, apart from my Colorbar mini haul, I got myself this cute dibbi of Solid Perfume from The Body Shop called "Love Etc"...

Stay tuned people for upcoming reviews :)

REVIEW: Elizabeth Arden's Sunflowers EDT Spray

I am a very finicky person where choosing and using perfumes are concerned. I have a very sensitive nose, no not nose but a sensitive "head" and many of the top perfumes in the world induce severe headaches in me. Hence buying a perfume is like quite a chore for me. I prefer subtle scents that are understated and sophisticated rather than loud, sexy and in-the-face. Thus exit Nina Ricci(s), Juicy Couture, Azzaro, Escada and the like and enter Burberry, Elizabeth Arden, Kenzo and Davidoff.

Because of being such a crazy bitch choosy person when buying perfumes, I prefer to not purchase them online (obviously!), but I got this bottle from FashionAndYou anyway and well let me tell you, where Elizabeth Arden is concerned its really hard to go wrong! For those of you who don't have invitations to FashionAndYou, go check it out and register yourselves for some great deals here.

So anyways, when I decided to purchase it, I thought to myself if buying a perfume that boasts of sm…

CELEB LOOK RECREATION: Sonam Kapoor Inspired Contouring

I have been wanting to do a post on face contouring since a very long time but I was too lazy to do it because a tutorial of face contouring would take up too much effort is what I had been thinking (bad girl!). I was just happily shelving it. But just today I saw this wonderful pic of the judges of Kingfisher's Swimsuit Calender Girl Hunt 2012 and I was literally blown away by Sonam Kapoor's look. I was getting so bored seeing neutral and natural looks, I was craving for something dramatic and voila! enter Sonam Kapoor :) I am totally digging her contoured cheekbones, heavily smoked eyes and nude pink lips. The smokey eyes give her an air of mystery with sensuality whereas her nude pink lips bring about a certain vulnerability, which completely balance out the smoky eyes. And I just cannot get enough of the contouring!!! It's simply gorgeous! Lets take a closer look at her and discuss this masterpeice that her makeup artist has created!













Now these are a list o…

LOTD: My first karwachauth look

Yesterday we celebrated my first "karwachauth", which as you all know is an important festival in the Punjabi community. Married women fast from sunrise to sunset without even a drop of water for the long lives of their husbands. It is followed by "katha" and pooja and finally the fast is broken by praying to the moon.

I am a half bengali and a half manipuri girl married to a punjabi, so you see this was a very important event for me as this marked me being a true-blue punjabi wife ;) I am sharing a few pics of my look here :) Let me know how you guys like it :)



GUEST POST: Casual Look For Office

Today I decided to wear my favorite tunic with tights at work. I totally love teaming tights with tunics as I find it a very relaxed & easy going combination. Also I am very fond of neutral tones be it apparel, footwear, accessories or even makeup …
Outfit Details: Tunic from GK I, tights from Snowhite , CP, footwear from Enroute, multi rounds bangle , gifted & Ed Hardy watch in black. Makeup Details: I wanted to add a color to my look so decided to do makeup with some blue in it….. This is what I did  I generally prefer wear metallic eye makeup and neutral toned lips.

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Turquoise Blue

You kow you need a break from make-up shopping when while rushing to get ready for office in the morning you cannot decide on which blue eye liner pencil to use! Ha! This happened to me today morning and I told myself "No more blue liner buying babe!". LOL! So in order to help myself "decide" on the blue pencil liner pick of the day, I did what anybody would have done (yeah right!).. I did "eenie Meenie Mynie Mo" :P LOL! Finally Faces Long Wear Pencil in Turquoise Blue won and I wore it to office :)  Faces is one of my favorite drugstore brands in addition to Colorbar and NYX and I find that their Long Wear pencils give a very close competition to Colorbar I-Glide Pencils. I guess that says a lot! I am reviewing Faces Long Wear Pencil in Turquoise Blue and let me tell you guys before hand that I totally recommend it :D And there goes the suspense of my review :P Images of the Product Swatch(es) LOTD
Oooohhsss and Aaaahhhs!! 1. Intense pigmentation 2. Gorgeous s…

REVIEW & LOTD: NYX Round Lipstick in Herades

Like many beauty bloggers, I myself own a lot of NYX products but somehow reviewing them has always been getting shelved and delayed. Well honestly, Colorbar and Faces seem to be demanding more of my attention and well NYX has always been relegated to the backseat... But ladies and gentlemen, not any more... NYX will not be overlooked any more and I will strive to get my NYX collection the focus it deserves.. Ok enough of my "sales pitch"... LOL! First off NYX seems to be really affordable and "cheaper" in the US but somehow us Indians get them quite expensive here. The NYX round lippies that cost a mere $4 in the US, we get them for INR 395/- here but trust me they are really worth every paisa :) Ok so how did I get myself to buy Herades? The story isn't that long, just that I have now hoarded loads of Pinks, Corals and Reds and so the logical next step seemed to be Orange :) I did try a couple of Orange lipsticks before but they simply refused t…

REVIEW: Bharat and Dorris Cream Eye Liners

Post by: Kannu

Ladies and gentlemen... Please put your hands together for our first guest post and also an entry post for the giveaway :) Btw, have you guys entered the giveaway as yet? No? Really? Why? LOL... You could check out the giveaway here :) So anyways coming back to our guest blogger, let me introduce you all to Kannu Mankatala Wadhwa. She is from dil waalon ki dilli (Delhi) and will be reviewing this professional range of makeup from Bharat and Dorris :)

Applying eyeliner was always a very difficult exercise for me until I started using gel liners. Gel liners are very convenient to use and have a long lasting effect. I went to Pune last week where I discovered this make up brand called “Bharat & Dorris”. Well to be honest I had never heard about this brand before or seen it anywhere in Delhi & NCR. The B&D store was quite huge and attractive so unlike any other girl I got tempted to visit the store. So this was my first visit to a B&D store and I must say I am very …

REVIEW & LIP SWATCH: Colorbar Lip Pot in Coral Crush

Since the time I got to know about the launch of Colorbar's Lip Pots, I have been covetting them and well unfortunately they are just not available in Pune. Therefore I asked my co-sister who was to be visiting us for a while to get me a lip pot in Coral Crush from Delhi. The moment I lay my eyes on it I haven't really been as ecstatic as I had hoped to me. Well I shouldn't really be unfair to the product (or to my co-sister for that matter), but Colorbar's Lip Pot don't impress me much (a-la Shania Twain, if you didn't really get it!) and well i don't think I'll be getting myself another shade in it. No doubt the packaging is really cute (I am a sucker for lil dibbis) and the product swatches wonderfully on my had and the quality is good but that is exactly where the fell-good factor ends.. Am I being too choosy? Well you guys be the judge then :) First off the "dibbi" is really tiny! You get a mere 6gms of product for INR 495/-.…
