What's In My Makeup Bag #1


What's In My Makeup Bag... Episode 1

Every time I meet someone who is well turned out and I can see has taken some effort to look pretty I cannot help but wonder about the products she has used or likes to use... Either it's because I am a beauty blogger and subconsciously keep evaluating different products or maybe because I am woman and I always want to know what another woman uses to prettify herself... Whatever the reason I am always curious and hence thought of doing a "Whats In My Makeup Bag" post myself...

So here goes...

I generally carry this mesh bag from Colorbar to keep all my cosmetics and makeup related stuff in one place inside my bag. I do not really remember how I got hold of this bag but most probably I got it free with a purchase of Colorbar products worth a certain amount...

The Products Inside My Beauty Bag

1. Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Cream+Serum Duo (Review HERE)

I started using this particular product when I was sent a PR sample. However, I loved it so much that today I am on ly 4th bottle. I have also rendered it a cult status on ISLM and you can read all about it HERE.

2. L'Occitane EDP Roll-On in Fleur Cherie

A girl needs to always smell well girly and nothing shouts feminine like a faint, lingering smell of some gorgeously surreal flowers. Even though I am not a fan of floral scents, this particular fragrance keeps me captivated and lasts a whole day on me. It comes in a cute glass vial with a roll on thing and is the most convenient thing to carry in your purse!

3. Kara Facial Wipes

Duh! Facial wipes and wet tissues are a girl's best friend and she must never travel anywhere without them! Enough said!

4. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat (Review HERE)

Now this isn't really a must-have for me. But it totally brightens up my face and hence perks me up when I have to meet my girlfriends for either lunch in the middle of a work day or gossip over coffee after a long day at work. Its perfect for the under eye area and for the bridge of your nose!

5. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal (Review HERE)

A kajal is something that I always like to keep handy and the brand keeps on changing for me. My current favorite is thsi Eyeconic kajal from Lakme!

6. Maybelline Hi Shiney Lip Gloss in Raspberry Reflections (Review HERE)

I am a worshiper of nude and clear glosses. However, I always say that a pink gloss can never fail a girl and if its super shiny like this Hi Shine one from Maybelline, then do keep a tube in your bag for emergencies and touch-ups!

7. Ellis Faas Mascara in E401 (Review HERE)

Last but not the least my most cherished and a favorite product, the Ellis Faas mascara... It curls, volumizes, lengthens and never clumps... It truly is a girl's best friend. No doubt it has found a permanent place in my makeup bag.

What's inside your makeup bag? Is it as sparse as mine or overflowing with some wonderful products? Do share... :)


  1. I so want to try that ysl highlighter! nice stuff!

  2. I love this variant of kara wipes. Yet to use the olay product. Have heard a lot about it. I Love to see what's in my bag post. Enjoyed this post :D

  3. Loved the post dear :) in my case its I really carry a lot of stuffs out of confusion..."ye rakh leti hun, ye bhi rakh leti hun " :/

  4. Excellent picks ! I enjoy reading such posts :)

  5. I too think about what a girl might have used when her face looks glowing and fresh :P I guess all of us do that..
    I usually carry perfume, tissues, a lipstick, compact powder, a lip balm, and a lot of other junk. I can go without anything, but not without a lip balm and some tissues.

  6. I liked how wisely you have chosen things for your makeup bag :)

  7. loved the way you have opted for right amount of makeup products!
    These things will help you out like a Professional makeup artist

  8. have kept minimal essential stuff and its not overcrowded with stuff..

  9. i Loved the YSL Touche Eclat and Ellis Faas mascara...thats quite a lovely add on. u r so right about Touche Eclat. It highlights without looking overtly bright...

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.
