REVIEW: Smashbox Lip Enhancing Lip Gloss in Illume

Review of Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Illume
ISLM Writer: Himani
Hey all beauty geeks!!! Today I am going to review Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Illume. Lip glosses are God-sent in spring and summers. When heavy color on the lips looks a little out of place in sweltering heat, glosses with their sheer color and shine come to the rescue. I prefer light and non-sticky glosses to add shine to the lips, without fussing over the lip color.

Maroon lipsticks do not get much love nowadays... Rewind to a decade earlier and Maroon lipsticks were all the rage... Then women moved on from Rekha to Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and Deepika Padukone... And it all became about the Reds and the pinks and the oranges...

Types of Nails you can get at a Salon

Types of Nails you can get at a Salon!
Nails represent one of the most important aspects of female and male beauty. Decoration for nails and nail paint was present for a long time, since Assyrian Empire. There is nothing worse than seeing a set of nails which haven’t been treated properly. Like any other part of the body, it is necessary for us to keep them clean and hygienic.

Normally, women are more attentive to their nails because it represents a part of their overall looks. It is no wonder that different nail salons improved their treatment over the course of years, so nowadays, we have different options when it comes to nails and nail decoration.

Given your preferences, you can choose only paint or perhaps even artificial nails. Whatever you pick, it will make you wonderful.

Every now and then I fall
Every now and then I lose control
In your eyes I see your thoughts surrounding me
And I've a little bit of thought for you
'Cause every now and then I fall a bit behind
Every time I stare into your eyes
'Cause every now and then I fall a bit behind
Every time I stare into your eyes

I have been listening to this song on repeat since morning and I must have heard it at least 18765 times. I have been working to this song, I gymmed to this song, I raved of this song, I cooked to this song and now I am blogging to this song...
I got to know of it from a quite an unexpected source... The new intern at work asked me to listen to the song and boy am I hooked!
Will leave a link at the bottom of this post to this song!

I apologise for being missing in action since a really long time. It seems like a small eternity has passed since I last wrote a review. I had been busying celebrating and enjoying some real big changes in my life. You know there comes a phase in your life when you desperately need a change and simply nothing seems to work for you. And then, just about the time when you least expect it, out of nowhere, you finally witness the change! Getting what you've been waiting so long for is sheer bliss!! :-)

LOTD: Fresh Glowy Summer Makeup Look

Revisiting the Maybelline Colorsensational Hi Shine Lipgloss in Raspberry Reflections for a Glowy Summer Makeup Look!
Phew! And that is a really long title, isn't it?






Hey Guys! So I have been playing with a lot of textures makeup-wise lately and I ended up with this look that is all about a matte face (perfect for humid summers) and a glossy lip... While I was deciding between using the MaybellineColorsensational Lip Polish and the L'Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in Rouge Allegro, my attention veered towards a forgotten gloss... So I gave it a shot hoping I'd remember why I had given it rave reviews a year back...

Oh! And fabulous it was!

The gloss that I am talking about is the Maybelline Colorsensational Hi Shine Lip Gloss in Raspberry Reflections.

So here's the look...

REVIEW: Sephora 10Hr Wear Perfection Foundation
You know the times when you buy something recklessly and once you reach home, you realise that the product you just bought could actually end up not being great or could end up not suiting you :/ Happens to me a lot since I never read reviews of products before I buy them... Yeah I am a beauty blogger and I do not read reviews... :P
