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!

1. The smell and only the smell.

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

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

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.

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 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.
