A Little Tete-a-tete...

 Updates... Changes... Enhancements...

Oh! There is so much I have to share with you guys that I am almost bursting with energy and excitement! I know many of you all may have already noticed but for those who have been hoodwinked by my "gradual" transition lemme just put it down in writing. ISLM is growing up. Just like that, it is starting to bloom into this beautiful butterfly and enchanting anything that comes it's way. And that was my today's dose of poetic elaborations and analogies! :P

First off, you all have by now noticed the spanking new header, template and layout of the blog. My endeavor has been to make the blog more attractive, feminine (that's why the PINK!), more accessible and well just more neat and tidy :) Of course all of your feedback is welcome and I would try my best to incorporate all your review comments (I generally say that you my manager :P).

Secondly, you will have noticed that I have hired some writers and they have very kindly been belting out some fabulous product reviews and posts for you all to read. I am much indebted to them. Of course, I haven't stopped writing or stopped doing reviews. It's just that managing my day job, home, shuttling between two cities and the blog was getting a bit too much for me. So I called out for some help and as a result we now have Manu, Anks, Mrittika, Shabby, Rmyah, Nandini, Marianne and Raunak on board isimplylovemakeup that is all set to sail towards highwaters :)
Do note that when a post has been written by a guest writer, I mention it right at the beginning of the body of the post. However, when the post is written by me, the tag "Guest Post By:" will be missing...

Finally, you will have also noticed that I have started posting more than once a day :) Why did I do that? Well some of you pinged me on gtalk and then a few of you all messaged on FB saying that you were hooked to ISLM so much that you would keep checking the blog throughout the day for new updates... Hence, keeping in mind your expectations from ISLM, I now post 2-3 times a day :) Plus it gives me more traffic... So it's like a win-win situation for all of us :) Do let me know if that's a welcome change or not...

So there it is all! This is what has been going on behind the scenes. Do let me know of what you all think :)

Oh! And I also wanted to draw your attention towards the Social Media icons that I have added to the site... Hover over them with your mouse and they will start rotating! Isn't it cute? :)

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…

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!

REVIEW: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
