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!

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…
