REVIEW: The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream

This I am guessing is the most awaited reviews of all. I have been receiving review requests for this TBS BB Cream since so long that I simply caved in and got down to the business of reviewing it for you guys only :)
Before I start, let me tell you that I LOVE IT! I think this says it all and you may want to skip reading through what follows... But still humor me, be kind to me and indulge me and read my review ;)

After the let down by Maybelline's BB Cream, I was quite wary of trying another BB Cream but the TBS junkie that I am, I had to get this All-In-One BB Cream when I came to know that they had launched it recently and it was supposed to be more apt for Indian skin tones than the previous BB cream TBS had come out with... Now ideally my shade is 02, but they were out of stock and I came home with shade 03 and it still suits me! Yes girls, it adapts to your complexion!!! It's just fabulous!

I am not sure how would it suit Oily skinned beauties though cause my super dry skin is extremely happy with this BB Cream... So if you have oily skin, you might first have to try it out at the store and then decide on whether you want to buy it or not...

The BB Cream contains some really microscopic granules that start bursting and create an orangish cast for the first 2 seconds after application... Fret not, blend it well and voila! you are left with something of a beautiful glow on your face that looks like second skin :)

The product looks gorgeous on your face with as well as without flash...

But let me tell you, it doesn't really hide any blemishes, it's more of a tinted moisturiser cum face illuminator kind of a product. So if you are looking for blemish coverage then this isn't the product for you...

Without Flash, Natural Light
With Flash

Ooohhsss And Aaaahhhsss!!!
1. It magically adapts to one's skin tone
2. Looks gorgeous with and without flash
3. Leaves your skin looking even and glowy
4. Doesn't cause any kind of irritation.
5. Super moisturising.
6. Not tested on animals :)
7. Easily available at all TBS counters across the country.

1. Not much of a blemish coverage should  be expected.
2. It's in a higher price bracket. But then it's TBS, what did you expect ;)

It costs INR 1395/- for 25 ml.
I would definitely repurchase this. This is almost like an HG product for me... I am on the lookout for shade 02, if I find it then AWESOME else am happy with shade 03 as well ;)

Would I Recommend?
If you  have dry to Normal skin then I would surely recommend it for you. It's a must have product in your vanity if you budget allows. I am not so sure about Oily skinned girls though...

  2. the pic in natural light is looking classy. great review!

  3. i found it a bit oily on my skin wen i tried it suma..its way too expe..very pretty picca..mwahh

    1. you found it oily did you Preetha... I had a feeling about it being oily... so i mentioned that I wasn'r sure about how it would fare on oily skin... plus did you try it in Mumbai? maybe it was the humidity as well..
      how have you been btw? all settled in your new city? :)

  4. Wohaaa!!! 1395 is so much but it luks so good yaar..what do I do

    1. haina? it is pricey but its so awesome that one does get tempted ;)

  5. what lippie are u wearing in the last pic?? its fab !!!

    1. thanks babe :) it's Colorbar Velvet Matte Lippy in Bare...

  6. I tried it at the store..less coverage n too skipped..looks fab on ur flawless skin though..I loveee the first pic Suma..u look so cute with polka dots ! :))

    1. Yup the coverage is less... It isn't much of a blemish corrector like I said :P btw thanks babe :)

  7. quite expensive but looking great on u:)

    1. Yup I agree it is a bit on the expensive side na...

  8. what is your skin care secret suma.... u have such awesome flawless skin... love your bangs.... gorgeous...

    1. Whoa he he thank you thank you :) but its really just exfoliation and moisturising :) but really thank you sooooo much :)

  9. take away my shade 02 :( I don't think I am going to be using it! Too creamy for my almost-oily skin, even in winters and it does nothing great for me. heart broken :( looks super on you though!

    1. Ooh you got shade 2? You lucky thing... But the cream doesn't suit you does it... Hmmm I did imagine it to be a bit iffy for oily skin girls :(

  10. you look gorgeous gal! havnt tried it yet but will def check it out

    1. Thanks Pari :) you got dry skin na? am sure it'll suit you :)

  11. I'll try it when there's the 30% or 20% discount, the Friendship thingy. I have combination skin,I tried it in the shop. It's lighter than the Korean BB creams and doesnt feel as oily but maybe cos of my mattifying moisturiser under it

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.

Ooooohss And Aaahhss!! 1. Really really stays on forever. 2. Doesn't smudge on my oily lids even after 8 hours of wear. 3. Friendly to the pocket 4. Faces have become quite easily available now. 5. They do not cause any allergies or reactions. 6. They are waterline safe a…

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…
