FRAGRANCE REVIEW: Playboy Play It Spicy

Yoohoo everyone :) Today starts a new week of hopes and aspirations and with the previous week ending so brilliantly (India winning over Pak in cricket of course!), this week promises to bring in more excitement and hopefully revelry (only if India meets Pak in the finals and then we win again :P). Also personally my past week ended really well cause you all liked my black smokey eyes tutorial and I myself got a sense of satisfaction after seeing the YT video :) So all in all a fulfilling week :)

This week needs me to really tie up laces, pull my pants up and do the following chores...
1. Send my giveaway prizes to Megha and Bidisha (I know I am so irresponsible and Lazy) :(
2. Send my 2999th prize to Parita (ok stop raising your eye brows)
3. Get myself a hair cut. Holi screwed my hair and I am planning to get my hair cut real short.
4. And of course do loads and loads of video tutes and other reader requests.

And I am starting with Nimisha's request for reviewing the Playboy Play It Spicy perfume. She had asked me for a review of it when I had initially bought it from and I like a very bad person totally forgot about it :( She then reminded me yet again and this time I am sticking to my promise :)

I honestly bought this perfume on a whim. I was short of cash but I still wanted to get myself a new fragrance and hence while going through's website, when I chanced over the Playboy "PlayIt" series and the bottles looked so cute, I knew I had got myself a budget buy :) Playboy has three fragrances in its "Play It" range, Play It Lovely, Play It Sexy and Play It Spicy. I expected one to be fresh citrusy, one to be sweet floral and one to be musky. I wanted the musky one and so I took my chances and ordered for Spicy, which I fervently wished to be musky and spicy ;) And lo behold the fragrance was all  wanted it to be excepting a single quirk :)

Play It Spicy has a very Oriental kind of smell, which is warm and enticing. A very close dupe would be Oriflame's Fire EDP. Both these fragrances smell very similar to each other only difference lies in the longevity of the perfumes. The Oriflame one stays on for like ever, on the other hand the Playboy one fades away after about 4 hours.

The spicy fragrances is warm and subtle, not the "in the face" kinds that tells people of your arrival much before you enter the room. Yes it isn't potent like that. It on the other hand has a classy, sophisticated fragrance to it that tends to fade away pretty soon :( Wish it stayed on for longer...

Rs.499/- for 30 ml
Rs. 695/- for 75 ml

Would I Recommend?
If you like these subtle fragrances and if you cannot get your hands on Oriflame's Fire EDP then you could go for this :) Also, if you like cute bottles on your dresses then you could go for this. It isn't expensive and so trying it out once is ok :)

Since my local beautician is an Oriflame agent, I have very easy access to Oriflame's Fire, so I guess I'll stick to that and gives this a break :)

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: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
