REVIEW: Bobbi Brown Smokey Eyes Mascara


REVIEW: Bobbi Brown Smokey Eyes Mascara

Every once in a while one comes about a product that blows your mind away and you are left wondering how the hell you'd been living without it! It happens... Not very often but it does!

So let me just spoil the surprise and tell you all that the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eyes Mascara is one of those products.

The Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara comes in a matte aluminum grey tube with black lettering... The mascara wand is long and the brush looks like a "normal" brush, nothing fancy. So much so that when I first opened the mascara and drew out the wand, I was like "Oh God! Not another useless over expensive mascara, please!"

Review of Bobbi Brown Smokey Eyes Mascara

However, things took an interesting turn when I first used the mascara... I got a feeling of *deja vu*... Because it was the same experience I had with the Ellis Faas Mascara as well. This Bobbi Brown Smokey Eyes Mascara too was amazing, it was curling, thickening, lengthening and volumizing all at once, as if it was even possible...

Price of Bobbi Brown Smokey Eyes Mascara

It costs INR 1690/-

The mascara is water resistant but isn't waterproof and comes off easily with soap and water. I wear it to the gym and the mascara is sweat-proof (thank the Lord!), gives a gorgeous curl and holds the curl for more than 8 hours.

Trick To Using Bobbi Brown Mascaras

All Bobbi Brown mascaras have a trick that makes them work really well for you. Before you start applying the mascara, hold the mascara vertical and try coating your strands with mascara and then turn the wand horizontally and apply as usual.
This will give you a beautiful curl as well as volumize your lashes. This sadly doesn't work for other mascaras except Rimmel London ones!

Overall Rating:

This is one of the best mascaras I have used and if you have a budget of more that INR 1000/- then you must get this mascara for sure!

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.
