Haul: The Body Shop & Maybelline


My TBS & Maybelline Haul and some rants!

So while my skincare routine video is getting uploaded to YouTube (it takes ages for some reason!) I am sitting here staring at my laptop screen 3 am in the morning and wondering how to start this post... So I guess I'll just get right down to the core of the subject... And that is skincare... Skincare for the 30s skin...

Off late I have been noticing a lot many fine lines around my eyes and even though I know I can still get away with it, I in my mind know that I am approaching 30... So of course however much I try my best, age will one day surely catch up with me and my skin...

So this particular trip of mine to The Body Shop was more focused towards anti-aging products and products that would nourish my skin and delay the signs of aging... And I did get my hands on some precious gems...

The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum-In-Oil... This is an overnight treatment product that you either mix with your night cream and apply or even apply it directly to your face and neck... It promises you radiant skin after 8 hours of sleep... I have been using it for a week now and I am already seeing results... Will review it in a couple of weeks for sure...

The next wonder product that I got for myself is this smoothing eye cream from The Body Shop's Nutriganics range... I had been looking for a good night cream since a while and this is what I brought home with me that day :)

The other products from TBS are just regulars like my Vitamin E cream and my Olive Shower Gel... However, this time I also got myself this matte, nude eye shadow called Sand By Me. It is this perfect nude eye shadow that matches my skin color to the Tee... Why did I need it is something that I'll cover in my review post for this eyeshadow :)

I also got myself this gorgeous jewel toned blue nail polish from Maybelline and the Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting concealer...

If there is any particular product that you'd like me to review first, do let me know...

Till then, I love you guys! ♥

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: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

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…

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.
