REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Mineral Eye Shine Trio In BeechWood

There are times in one's life when we need to veer from our comfort zones, our traditional choices, our favorites and do something unexpected or try something that you know just isn't you. I am not saying change for others but if you watch Dexter then you'll know when I say that sometimes you need to blend in ;) So what is the unexpected that I recently did? haha well, instead of buying a smokey palette or bright shades, I go out and get myself a neutral eye shadow palette. Yup that is what counts as "unexpected" for me :P I am sure many of your girls know what I mean :) Why did I get it? The reason is as simple as wanting something "appropriate" for office ;)

How do I like it? Well I feel that I am in Neutral Heaven and well I am totally enjoying this new palette of mine :) The shadows are all various shades of brown but are as different as they could be. The dark brown and the highlighter shades are matte while the medium shade is satin. They have some really good staying power even without a base. They have decent pigmentation, nothing to be gung-ho about but they work well and I like them :) They look chalky in the palette when they sure are not :)

Ooohhss And Aaaahhhs!!
1. It is a well co-ordinated neutral palette perfect for every day use.
2. Decent pigmentation.
3. Has really good staying power even without a primer or base.
4. The case is sleek and hence can be easily carried around in your purse, even a clutch ;)
5. Comes with a nice BIG mirror, which seriously is ultra helpful.
6. The sponge applicator that comes with it isn't totally useless and is of pretty good quality.
7. The shadows apply smoothly and are very easily blendable.

1. The case from outside has an "old, used" look :(
2. Some may find 600/- for this palette a bit on the expensive side especially if you compare it to the Maybelline Chai Latte Quad.

It costs INR 599/- but I got it on sale for INR 299/- :)

If I do get over with it then definitely but I don't think I will be picking up other shades from this range.

Would I Recommend?
Oh yes! If you are looking for a nice neutral palette for your office or college or even for those "natural no make-up" days then this is the palette for you!!

Overall Rating


  1. I have this in the combo named berry bliss-but me thinks-without discount-it is tad overpriced- the beechwood is soo much like chai latte-but double the price :(

    1. yup totally agree with you in the comparison with Maybelline's chai latte, which i mentioned as an ouch as well... if there was no off on it then i guess I wouldn't have purchased it :P

  2. ty for visiting suma..will post the recipe in couple of days...

  3. This is so me , but I prefer a little more shimmer....

  4. This luks k but then I already have chai latte n even the brown diamond glow quad by Maybelline which work well so will give this a miss but seriously 600 bucks is just too glad u got a discount

    1. yup agreed for a neutral palette 600 bucks is on the expensive side.. truth be told i bought it cause i got it on sale... else would have never bought it for sure...
      vaise the staying power and non-creasing quality even without a base is the highlight of the palette :) i dont get that with Maybelline :(

  5. This is so good. I guess even for the price, it's worth the money because usually the neutrals don't show up on our skin to the fullest extent.
    Going by that this one looks amazing. The crease factor is definitely a bonus!

    1. yeah nivedita its basically the non-creasing characteristics that made me gave 8/10 to it :) have u tried this range yet?

  6. the palette is totally worth it :d and suma you are looking beautifulllll with Red honey XOXO..... loved the overall look :D :D

  7. Its one of the best trios available in market for neutral makeup, just its costly, but then its a mineral eye shadow range.

    1. you got that right Taps :) The shades are truly beautiful and the best part is that they just don't crease!!!!!! ultra impressive that is :)

  8. wow you have done fab eyemakeup sam and this trio is a real steal especially in sale!

    1. thank u Parita and totally agree with the point that its a steal when on sale :)

  9. Lovely trio !!! and wearable too ... loved the look created :*

  10. Am definitely Gong to get this 1!!U luk so Pretty Suma <3

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 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…
