REVIEW & LOTD: MAC Paint Pot in IndianWood and a Valentine's Day Look

Of course you all have heard of MAC Paint Pots and of course you have heard of IndianWood as well... But you guys'll need to be patient and hear me out when I say that I love it and I very well intend to make you guys fall in love with it as well if you are already not ;) It is this gorgeous shade of Gold, which is less yellow and more coppery. It is an antique coppery gold with a smooth buttery texture, which dries up real fast and then doesn't budge an inch :) It stays on my oily lids like forever :D

  8. I got MAC paint paint pot in Morning frost,havnt tried it yet.. my main purpose to get it was to use it as a eye shadow base.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Do let us know how it turns out for you :) Morning Frost as such is a gorgeous shade and can be worn on its own as well :) For bases I would suggest "bland" shades like Painterly or Groundwork :)

      Delete
    2. hhmm its a pretty shade .. too bad if it cant be used as a base , MAC SA only suggested me to take that !

      Delete
    3. The SAs are not always right :) and of course you could use it as a base but it'll be a waste cause the shade is a beauty and it wont be fair to cover it up with another shadow :) so i suggested "duller" paint pots like Painterly or groundwork...

      But seriously SAs are always not right! though some are totally fabulous :) for example a MAC SA in the pune store suggested me to use MAC Mineralize foundation in NC30 and another one at the same store suggested NC42! LOL... some decisions one needs to take on their own :)

  9. This is gorgeous..has been on my wishlist like foreover..need to get it..unfortunately am so busy checking out other things at Mac tat can barely pay attention to the paint pots :(

I use Urban Decay Good karma eyeshadow brush....Right now I am not able to buy due to the mourning period but I am eyeing this shade too...I just have 5 paint pots...Blackground, Quite natural, Groundwork, Dangerous Cuvee and Vintage Selection...Shall be getting more!
    Thanks for the article.

    1. constructivist is on the cards next :D you have a nice collection :) dangerous cuvee is really pretty :) but isn't Vintage selection a lot like IndianWood.. i founf=d them pretty similar u know :P LOL... u use a brush for the paint pots??? how cool... i just use my fingers... i know i know it isn't hygienic but i guess i am just too lazy :P lol! :)

      Delete
    2. Fingers are definitely not hygienic...u can sanitize the paint pot by spraying some surgical spirit and drying it for a minute....

      Vintage selection is not at all like Indianwood...Its very pale pink beige and is packed with shimmer...

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: 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…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
