REVIEW & LOTD: MAC Eye Shadow in Humid

MAC cosmetics does seem to have very interesting names for its eye shadows and lipsticks. Those who are working in the "nomenclature" department of MAC, I bow to thee. Such interesting and innovative names do deserve a round of applause. And one of them is MAC Humid. Would you seriously name an eye shadow Humid? I mean don't we relate humidity with a negative sense of the climate? Don't we say "Aggghhrrrrr I totally abhor the humidity in Mumbai" or "My hair gets soo frizzy in Kolkata's humidity" and yet they name their classic green shadow as "Humid" and well no one is complaining! :) Why? Cause with humidity I somehow relate plants and greenery. And so it seems very natural to me that a mossy green shadow be name d as Humid. Doesn't it make sense to you too? :P

MAC Humid is by far the BEST GREEN EYE SHADOW I have ever used. It is a flattering warm, olivey-mossy green that looks gorgeous on our type of skintones. I have had a tough time looking for a flattering green for my undertone and well MAC Humid seems to be the best bet :) It has this hint of a golden shimmer in it but it is very subtle and just results in a velvety golden sheen over the green shade :)

Oooohhhss And Aaaahhhsss!!!
1. Gorgeous shade of green.
2. A very versatile shade of green that would look flattering on all Indian skin tones :)
3. Smooth velvety texture.
4. Blends easily
5. Does not crease
6. Does not cause reactions.
7. Good pigmentaion

Ouches!!
I seriously cannot think of any except that it is a tad bit on the expensive side :)

Price
It costs Rs.680/720 for a refill and 900 in a pan.

Repurchase?
Definitely! This is the most flattering green on my eyes :)

Would I Recommend?
If you have a yellow undertone, are looking for a gorgeous green that would flatter your eyes, go with Indian outfits as well western then woman you have to get yourself HUMID in pan or refill! :D

Overall Rating:
9.5/10

Make-up Break-up
For the look here I have used the following:
1. Faces Sparkle Dust in Golden on the lid
2. MAC Humid on the crease and outer corner
3. MUFE Star Powder in shade 940 on the brow bone
4. Lakme Absolute Moonlit Highlighter for contouring
5. Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick in Classic Rose

    1. hey chris :) Mermaid Green from NYX is it? But you know in India NYX shadows are almost as pricey as the MAC refill pans :P LOL... weird but sadly true :( btw read in your blog that you can cook aloo mattar? serious? Awesome! :) I am yet to learn how to cook it :)

      Delete
    2. Oh no! I didn't think NYX would be too pricey in India. :( That's too bad. Maybe I'll do a giveaway in the future so you guys can get one. :) I visit www.manjulaskitchen.com to get my aloo mattar recipe. It's such a great website!

      Delete
    5. I am wheatish and i love red matt colour but with orange undertones!!!

      Delete
    6. ooohhh thats easy then :) buy this one... Lakme Absolute Matte lipstick in Classic Rose... make sure your lips are well exfoliated and moisturized :) i would ve suggested Maybelline for a lesser price but they seem to have the highest content of Lead so STAY AWAY! :D

      Once you ve gotten comfortable wearing Red lippies with Lakme Absolute's Classic ROse, then your next buy should be Colorbar Velvet Matte Hot Hot Hot... once you are confident in both shades then sweetie you are ready to rock the world with your red lips ;)

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…
