#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...

Hence, when last week I had to attend a wedding, I decided to go all out and experiment with something other than Red and Pink, my usual choices :) You all know how much I have been lemming Plum lately and so Plum it was...

I chose a turquoise blue Raw Silk suit that has delicate silver embroidery at the neck, border of the sleeves and the panel of the kurta. But instead of going with matching dupatta I chose a Plum-my Silk Manipuri Handloom dupatta with it... That set the base of the look and I centered my makeup around it...

As far as makeup is concerned, I went with silvery, grey eye shadows on the eyes, lined thickly with black liner, a berry blum and well Plum Lips. The lipsticks especially was the star of my look and it went perfectly well with my dupatta.
The Lipstick is called Glamour Fuchsia from the Moist Matte Range by L'Oreal Paris. I have already talked about it HERE and HERE. It truly is a gorgeous and is a brighter version of Plum. When one talks about Plum lipsticks, one thinks of intense, dark and even vampy shades but that isn't really a cup of everyone's tea now is it... And then enters L'Oreal Paris Moist Matte Lipstick in Glamour Fuchsia and well it is as bright a Plum lipstick can get :)

Anyway, here is a blurry picture of my outfit (via Instagram) but pictures of my makeup are better quality (Thank God!)

So what do you think of my look? Do you think this shade of lipstick suits me? Would you give it a shot?

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 & 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.

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
