My December Envy Box - Christmas Special

My December Envy Box - Christmas Special
I am not a very Subscription Box person. I am sure you can tell... I do not like surprises probably... I mean I like to put my money where I know what I will get... However, getting a subscription box is really exciting and the very few times that I received a subscription box was like Christmas for me, the mystery, the intrigue is just so awesome!

Review & Swatches: Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick - Fuchsia FlareISLM Writer: Ishleen
Hello all my gorgeous lovelies!
How have all of you been? Winters are bringing out the best of me (what an oxymoron that is, right?) and I have been incessantly reviewing new products for you beauties, and trust me, I am loving each and every moment of it! And of course, what more do you want than a cozy blanket, a cuppa warm coffee and some pink lipstick to take you through the day?

Top 3 Haircare Products To Swear By!

Top 3 Haircare Products That I Love!
Its not everyday that I write about Hair Care products on I Simply Love Makeup. I am guilty of getting inclined more towards makeup and skincare and in the process Hair Care suffers... However, the other day while I was going through the motions of organising my dresser (I seriously find it very boring!) I realised that gradually over time hair care was taking more of my grooming time that skincare was and hence I decided to do a post of what I generally do to take care of my hair.

Essence XXXL Long-Lasting Lip Gloss Matt Effect – 07 Silky Red Review, Swatches and FOTDISLM Writer: Ishleen
Hello my beauties. The weather out there is gorgeous, isn’t it? And so are you. Trust me! Talking of gorgeous, yes, I finally got a chance to review the most gorgeous drugstore product I possess and that is from a German cosmetic line named Essence. I agree, winters are all about well-defined eyes and bright-n-bold statement lips. Ranging from fuchsia, to bright oranges, to plum, to ox-blood to the good old bright red pout, statement lips are the latest trends.

Is It Christmas Yet?

Makeup Look & LOTD: Is It Christmas Yet?
If you follow me on Instagram, you'd know that I have recently switched jobs and I have been really busy the past week getting the hang of things at my new workplace. A new team, new teammates, new friends and well new work altogether has kept me busy and I have really missed blogging...

Sunset Inspired Makeup Look

LOTD: Sunset Inspired Makeup Look
Do you think sunsets are now forgotten? I mean there was a time when everyone was taking pictures of sunsets, writing poetic verses describing a sunset, all honeymoon pictures had a number of sunsets captured and all Indian Hill Stations have sunset points!

Sleek Makeup Blush Flushed - Perfect for Brown Skin

REVIEW, SWATCHES: Sleek Makeup Blush "Flushed"
I am 30 years old. And even though I am very comfortable about being on the other side of 30, confident about my looks and probably the happiest in my life, I have realised that subconsciously I have started veering towards makeup practices and techniques that are known for creating an illusion of a youthful appearance.

3 Underrated Skincare Products that Changed My Life

3 Underrated Skincare Products that Changed My Life
I am on a hiatus from work, a five day break to be precise as I am switching jobs and apart from the cliched "relaxing", "chilling out", "waking up late", "TV marathons" and "non-stop YouTubing", I literally have been experiencing stuff... Vague? Let me elaborate :)

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Mascara and Eyeliner Duo by Sleek Makeup

REVIEW: Sleek Makeup Dip-It Duo Volumising Mascara and Liquid Eyeliner 24 Karat
ISLM Writer: Sanchita
Mascara and eyeliner go hand in hand and these are two things that a girl needs in her life more than anything else. Sleek Makeup has been a phenomenal drugstore brand which sadly isn't available in India, but thanks to a handful of websites and their heavy duty shipping charges, we still can get our hands on these lovely products. I decided to buy the mascara and eyeliner duo for the sole purpose of saving myself the labor of carrying two things in my bag when I can get both the product in a single thing. Read on to know my thoughts about the product in detail.

REVIEW: Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow - Mixed Berry
Maybelline could not have had better timing for coming up with its new Baby Lips variant called Candy Wow!
Finally the cold season is starting to make its presence felt in Pune and am I glad! This week we have been experiencing a little nip in the air and it is no doubt a welcome change :) And come Winter season more than the chill its the dryness that starts affecting me and I find myself reaching out to my trusted Baby Lips lip balms...

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate
ISLM Writer: Ishleen
Hello everyone!
Today I am here with a very interesting Kajal review—which has been the most raved about almost all over the Indian Beauty market! A very wise man once said—Eyes are the windows to a woman’s soul—and one thing which spark off’s the Indian beauty to its utmost extent is a heavy kohl-rimmed eye! Eye makeup using kohl is something which Indian beauty’s love to bits because we generally do not like using eyeshadows on a daily basis!

REVIEW: Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

REVIEW: Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
With the Urban Decay Naked palettes and Makeup Revolution chocolate palettes and the like it was high time that some popular drugstore brand too upped their game and got something out in the name of nudes and neutrals. Well, Maybelline did and ladies and gentlemen please give a round of applause to Maybelline The Nudes Palette.

Beauty Blender, Stippling Brush vs Foundation Brush

Beauty Blender, Stippling Brush or Flat Foundation Brush?
When I first forayed into the world of foundations I like any novice used my fingers... I still sometimes use my fingers to apply base makeup especially concealer as they provide a great way to warm up a product and spread it evenly. However, soon I discovered the Foundation Brush which seemed like a God sent! I was content with it for a while and then I found the Stippling Brush... Life seemed perfect and then into my life sauntered in the Beauty Blender...

Hairstyles to Enhance Your Anarkali Look

Hairstyles to Enhance Your Anarkali LookOld is gold - A relevant remark, at least as far as fashion is concerned. Some classic styles just never go out of vogue. Anarkali, the pride of the Mughal era, is certainly one of them; a fashion fad that will never fade away.  This festive season get ready to set fire to the red carpet! If you’re planning to put on your Madhubala and ditch the regulars—sarees and lehengas—then be sure to rock the look with elegance and class.

Review: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Green

REVIEW: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Green
ISLM Writer: Sanchita
Black liner, black kajal and black eyeshadow – sounds monotonous, eh? Well, thank the Heavens for beautiful colored liners. My new-found love are the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal which I bought in bulk for the festive and wedding season. These were launched way back in the day but those days my obsession was mostly black so I didn’t pay much heed to these. Today I am going to review the shade green which looks quite exquisite on the eyes too! Read on to know more about the color.

#MyPlumObsession Indian Festive Makeup Look

#MyPlumObsession Indian Festive Makeup Look
I rarely dress up festive, Indian festive at least... I would call my personal style as 'Casual Chic' leaning towards feminine and hence it is very rare that I actually go out and dress up like really dress up... In real life at least... Pretty yes but highly predictable...

Nivea Men After Shave Balm as Face Primer

Nivea Men After Shave Balm as Face Primer
Yup you read the title right! When I first heard about using a men's after shave as a face primer, I had my doubts... Well I had more than doubts, I was freaked out about what the world was coming to!
