REVIEW & LOTD: MAC Amplified Lipstick in Craving

You know how one craves for hot tea with ginger during Winters first thing in the morning, or how one craves for that cup of strong coffee one you reach office, or the craving for hot tomato soup on chilly winter evenings... Well yeah similar way I crave for richer shades of lipstick during the winter months and well right now I am craving for MAC Craving! :P

Yup the gorgeous lippy is called "Craving", how aptly named that is and the shade that it boasts of can be described as a burst of plum :) It has these pinkish tinges as well and the shade is so gorgeous that there wont be one occasion when people don't ask you about the shade that you are wearing :) It's a nice warm shade and would especially suit all Indian skintones.

It has an amplified creme finish and that makes it just perfect for Winter months.

Oooohhhss and Aaahhhsss!!
1. The shade is gorgeous and would suit all Indian skintones.
2. The finish is amplified creme and is really moisturising. Perfect for Winters and even summers for that matter ;)
3. Is a part of the permanent collection as is hence easily available.
4. Its a very versatile shade.
5. It's an opaque shade and hence gives good coverage.
6. The lipstick has a choco-vanilla flavor, which is signature to MAC lippies
1. It could have been a little price friendly but then its MAC :)

It costs INR 990/-

Oh definitely without a doubt.

Would I Recommend?
I would be crazy not to. With the shade being so versatile, it is a must have for all Indian Women :)

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

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…
