REVIEW: MAC Eye Shadow In Contrast


Strikingly Different!


I went looking for Nehru and I ended up with Contrast. Does this happen to you too? I mean not exactly with Nehru and Contrast but with random things. Like you go looking for a particular product but it being not available you pick up other products in lieu of it. Of course there is nothing wrong in it, but when you're on a tight budget it totally wreaks havoc #StoryOfMyLife

So anyways, while going through rows and rows of eye shadows there on display, I kept getting attracted towards the blues. But I didn't want to come home with just any blue, I mean yes freshwater is like the obvious favorite and I know I will succumb to its popularity soon but that day I needed something dark and mysterious and something that looks different from what it really is :P So I chose Contrast...

MAC Contrast is a purplish blue eye shadow in a velvet finish. It has a little shimmer that sometimes looks turquoise and sometimes sliver and sometimes even Grey! If I go on describing the eye shadow like this I am sure to confuse the hell out of you... But honestly? I love it! It's perfect for that smokey eyes and for those who do not like doing a black smokey eye. It obviously looks very different on the pan, on the swatch and finally on your eyes... It's like it has these various facets to it's personality that one cannot truly understand the shadow or predict how it will look the next time you wear it... Yup I like to think that it is quite like me ;)

Swatch

LOTD

Oooohhhss And Aaaahhhsss!!!
1. Pretty intense color
2. Decent pigmentation
3. Mysterious and an unpredictable shade
4. Does not cause allergies and irritations.
5. Available in both pan as well as refills (like all MAC eye shadows)
6. Part of the permanent collection
7. Perfect for smokey eye enthusiasts.

Ouches!!!
1. Tad bit expensive
2. Has a little fallout.

Price:
It costs INR 720/- for a refill and 900/- for a pan.

Repurchase?
If I do run out of it, then sure!

Recommendation:
Like  said earlier, if you are a smokey eye enthusiast then it should soon be a part of your palette and if you are a smokey eye enthusiast who likes to stay away from black then this sure is a must have eye shadow for you :)

Overall Rating:
9/10

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…

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…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...




Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
