REVIEW: Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm In Sweet Narangi Juice



Review of Forest Essentials Lip Balm In Sweet Narangi Juice


If you are a fauji kid, the first thing that'll pop into your head when you hear the word Narangi is not the color Orange and neither will it be the fruit Orange but a little army station outside Guwahati called Narangi :) I swear it's called Narangi... Why? Your guess is as good as mine :D

But honestly that isn't the reason why I picked this little beauty up... I bought it for its extraordinarily gorgeous packaging! And you know what a sucker I am for pretty packaging :)
So I am putting up some pictures of the product and take a moment of silence to stare, gawk and admire at the beauty of it...





As you can see it comes in a hexagonal carton and inside lies an oval shaped, sleek and a classy looking mini compact kind of a container... When you flip it open you are greeted with a sparkling mirror and a bright yellow colored product. It's just too mesmerising!


Now that we are done ogling, let's get down to business and review the product :)

Forest Essentials Lip Balm In Sweet Narangi Juice is a light weight, melt in your finger kind of a balm that feels like molten ghee (if you may) when you apply it. In short it feels really nice and moisturising and if your lips have been feeling parched lately, they will lap up it up readily...

Even though the balm looks a bright yellow in the pan, it is colorless and doesn't give you any color. It readily gets absorbed and does not leave any kind of tacky or sticky or balmy feeling on your lips. It looks as if you haven't applied anything but feels like you have finished a whole tin of milk-cream on your lips alone :) Ha! I hope that made sense...

The one thing that I absolutely did not like about the product is it's fragrance. Ummmm when you read Sweet Narangi Juice and if you imagined the yummy, refreshing smell of freshly squeezed orange juice then you are in for a bit of a shock :/
It does smell of oranges but not fresh... No no it doesn't smell rotten, it smells more like an Indianized Orange if that makes any sense to you... Well let me try again... It smells like an ayurvedic orange or maybe when you mix how orange juice smells with some fragrance from an incense stick. It's like you are getting an Ayurvedic Kerela Spa massage with an Orange oil... In a good way though... Have I confused you enough?

Sigghhhh I know I am the only one in the entire blogosphere who might actually not be liking the smell but then that's how it is...

Apart from the smell, it is a fabulous product quality-wise!

Price of Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm Sweet Narangi Juice:

It costs INR 495/-

Ooooohhsss And Aaaahhhhsss!!!
1. Stunning packaging
2. Gorgeous texture
3. Gets absorbed easily
4. Doesn't leave a tacky, sticky feeling on the lips
5. Is tasteless
6. Not as expensive as the packaging looks!
7. Really really moisturising!

Ouches!!!
1. The smell and only the smell.

Repurchase?
I loved the packaging but not the fragrance. So I guess I'll get another lip balm but in another flavour ;)

Recommendation:
It's a superb product, it does its job well, the quality is spanking and it just doesn't feel greasy. However before buying I would still insist on smelling it first... Afterall your lips are directly under your nose :P

Overall Rating
8/10

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…

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.
