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 ;)



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.

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

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

If I do run out of it, then sure!

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 :)

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: 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 & 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.
