Bombay Shopping...


My Tiny Shopping From Bombay

My trips to Bombay have always been special... There is something about the city... But last Saturday when I was on my way to the Metropolis, I couldn't help but feel a little shudder... The city that I once knew to be safe for it's women was now somewhere lost in the gruesome crime that was committed on Thursday... I wasn't really sure if I would feel the same for the city anymore and I knew for sure that I would be on high alert every time I crossed Parel/Mahalaxmi...

It wasn't just me, my parents too were worried... Being in the other end of the country, they would constantly keep tabs on where I was, if I was noting down the registration numbers of the taxis I was availing and if I wasn't alone in the local train compartment... I wouldn't blame them! I myself was bordering on paranoia...
But seriously a commendable job done by the Mumbai police and the crime branch to be able to nab the culprits within 48 hours. Kudos to them and I hope they can prevent Bombay from becoming yet another city known for being unsafe for its women.

On a lighter note, life still seemed to go on in the city and it was successful in lightening up my mood as well :) Bombay no doubt is special... If you haven't visited the city, then you've only heard of Marine Drive, Bandstand, Juhu Beach, Dharavi and Chawls... But when you live in Bombay, you realise that there is so much more to the city... The spirit of the city, the playful arguments between the suburb-ians and town-ies, the fabulous eating joints, the glimpses of the sea, the air of wanting to have fun and the super chilled out attitudes of its citizens (strictly over the weekends).  Even the local train rides on Saturdays and Sundays is something of an experience in itself :)

But for me another reason why Bombay is special is because of Kryolan. I am slowly but surely getting addicted to Kryolan... No trip of mine to Bombay is complete without a visit to Kryolan in Bandra and of course Colaba Causeway...

So here's what I got myself from my trip to Bombay...
1. A Braided necklace made of golden beads. I bought it on Anks' insistence and I so don't regret it! I wore it to the Lakme Makeup Masterclass as well :)
2. A colorful (tribal?) statement necklace with spikes!
3. Kryolan brushes (lip filler/liner, tapered blending brush, smudger/crease brush). I shall be reviewing them soon.
4. Kryolan Faceliner in Shade 36. It is basically a nude liner that can be used on the waterline as well as on the lip.
5. Kryolan Glamour Sparks in the shade Noble Sparks. These are little glitter particles that can be used to amp up your eye makeup.

So what would you like me to review first?

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 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.
