REVIEW & LOTD: Colorbar True Gloss Lip Gloss in Natural Tan

You know how every one keeps chanting the term MLBB? Well for those who still find it to be akin to Heiroglyph, MLBB stands for My Lips But Better. Honestly? I have always been jealous of those who have found their MLBB shades and needless to say I have been on the lookout for it myself... But all in vain. I did come close to find my ML (My Lips) shade in MAC Taupe, but the BB (But Better) part is something that has been eluding since like ever! So imagine my surprise when I finally got myself Colorbar's True Gloss Lip Gloss in Natural Tan and found it to be my MLBB :D Oh yeah baby, I am now a proud owner of an MLBB lip gloss :)

It was out of sheer accident that I bought this. I had got myself the bright pink shade in Vintage Rose and since it turned out be one rocking product, I ventured into Beauty Center to get me some more shades in this range... Yup I bought a couple of more shades in Pinks and Oranges too. But when I saw this shade, a tiny little voice from inside of me pestered me to get this too ;) And boy! am I happy I listened to those little devil's voices? :P

Now Colorbar True Glosses as such are real revolutionary products that some in around 10 really vibrant shades. They have 2-3 shades in Pink, about 4 shades in Orange, 1 in Red and well 1 in neutral! They stay on for like ever. The gloss rubs off but it leaves behind a really bright stain on your lips that just don't go away even with meals, coffees and yup even apples in between. I wear it to office in the morning, have numerous cups of coffee, eat two apples, couple of cups of tea, sandwiches, biscuits and salads and yet when I am home in the evening, it is still there! Nice and bright!

This particular shade looks like I am wearing transparent gloss over a lip primer. It hides my pigmentation and gives a uniform and a very flatteringly natural tone to my lips with a bit of juicy glossy effect!

They are not sticky, have no fragrance, do not cause any irritation and come in no fuss glass tubes with a doe foot applicator and I am smitten.

Oooohhhss And Aaaahhsss!!!
1. Really long lasting. I have tested it for 12 hours!
2. No fragrance/flavor! I love that fact about it!
3. No stickiness and no heaviness
4. Does not cause any kind of irritation or allergies.
5. It comes with a doe-foot applicator that is like the most convenient to use for precise applications.
6. They contain no sparkle or glitter.
7. Out of this world pigmentation!

I really cannot think of any except that the silver lettering that says "Colorbar" on the glass tubes, gets scratched off easily!

It costs INR 495/-

I'll be stupid not to! I am buying the complete range btw ;)

Would I Recommend?
You bet your a** I would! It is for everyone! It's just beautiful and like a gift from God ;) I have never used a gloss better than these! They are a must have in everybody's vanities!

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

Good Health: My Slimming Diet and Exercise Regimen

I was planning on starting this post with a quote on health and all that jazz but then I realized you are here reading this post not cause you want to see my writing style but are here cause you actually want to read the contents :) So I will start without much intro but a little disclaimer before that ;) Disclaimer I am not a doctor or a nutritionist or even a dietitian.

You are to find out what is right for you and make your own permutations and combination to this regimen of mine depending on your target weight, your lifestyle and all :) Before I start there are a couple of points we need to keep in mind: 1. In order to lose weight one needs to burn more calories than you take in. 2. The human body takes about only 1200 calories to do the routine functions of respiration, digestion etc. 3. Just because you are not taking 3 full meals a day does not mean that you are starving yourself or ar

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!
