MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Plum Foolery - Review, Swatches & FOTD

Hello girlies!
How is everyone doing? Winters are in full bloom here in Delhi, and with winters starts the flooding of sultry-flushed cheeks on instagram! Yeah, yeah! I know some of you may “say” that we are naturally blessed with flushed cheeks, or some of you might really be lucky enough to have those gorgeous, supple, pink cheeks—but alas, I am not one of you lucky girls and I need a little swipe of miraculous colour on my cheek to look instagram ready! :P

Not to forget the glorious wedding season which winters bring along, and special occasions require some high-maintenance makeup such as a nice pigmented, warm toned, plum hued blush and if it is a shimmery one—more power to you good woman!

Review of Sugar Eye Told You So Waterproof Eyeliner - Black Swan
As I sit on my living room couch watching Django Unchained with the pati, nibbling on some nachos, I cannot help but feel contented... My mom says feeling satisfied is a state of mind and I completely agree with her. There are days when I have almost everything working for me and I still feel like something's missing while there are days when nothing seems to be going the way I want them to and yet small, basic things make me feel like I need nothing else in life...

Hello there gorgeous!
The Holiday season has begun, and winters to me mean a transition from super oily to super dry—and even flaky at times—skin, and it is not the best feeling to prance out at the festivities, I swear! And if you have been following me lately, I have been on a skincare review spree, and yes, as promised I bring to you only the most beloved of my products, one that actually did me good—and here I come with another of my super amazing baby which did not fail to impress me in any aspect!

Ok, when was the last time you received something and you felt like “Man, why did I not try this before”? does not happen much with me to be honest, but when I say it did happen; you need to trust me that the product indeed did sweep me off my feet! So I did receive this gorgeous little baby in one of my fab bag’s and trust me, I wasn’t the most excited to try it out! But o…

8 Golden Rules To Healthy Nails

8 Golden Rules to Healthy Nails
ISLM Writer: Ishleen

The commonly seen anti-ageing routine for most women out there is a simple cleansing, toning, and moisturizing of the skin, including a few applications of a night time serum. But what about your hands and finger tips which are crying for your attention while pampering your face and surrounding skin? Just like a well fitted dress, a chic haircut, and clear, smooth skin; healthy looking nails are a tool which can gear up your entire look and make you look high-maintenance both in your social as well as corporate world.

Maybelline Color Sensational Bold Matte Lipstick Mat 3 Review

Maybelline Color Sensational Bold Matte Lipstick Mat 3 ReviewISLM Writer: Sanchita
Hello everyone. Hope you all are enjoying winter. Fall is for dark, vampy and seductive lip colours but somehow my mind is totally off this season. I am busy wearing bright pinks, corals and oranges and buying some more. My latest buy is the Maybelline Color Sensational Bold Matte which I haven’t tried before. I have a soft corner for matte lipsticks and no matter what the season is – I am always wearing matte. Read on to know what I felt about this lip colour.

REVIEW: The Body Shop Lip Gloss - Shade 04
The first two weeks of 2016 haven't been as great for me as I would have liked it to be. Its been full of struggles, stress and well a little disappointment. However, I am hopeful and I am inclined to believe that things will start looking up for me soon... Details later...

Hello you gorgeous ladies!

It took me a good 15 minutes to think about the introduction part of this one-beloved review post of mine, but I was so darn excited about this product because, because, because—oh man, am I tongue tied today—it is Sugar Matte As Hell Lip Crayon guys!

REVIEW: Faces Go Chic Lip Gloss - Sheer Coral

Faces Go Chic Lip Gloss Sheer Coral ReviewISLM Writer: Sanchita
Lip Glosses work for my emergency routines when I don’t get time for other than kajal and sunscreen. I simply dab on some lip gloss, which mostly multi-task as a lip balm and lip polish and then I am good to go. I picked up the Faces Go Chic Lip Gloss in Sheer Coral this time for the upcoming summers. Let us see this little beauty in details.

Hello munchkins!

I know I am most probably the last person on the earth to rave about this little baby which was launched somewhere near the diwali season! And Maybelline knows when to launch its products so as to gain the most popularity and attention towards them! So first things first, being a sikh (by religion) I did not celebrate Diwali this year given some communal decisions! But no matter what, shopping for makeup under Diwali's veil is always justified! *wink-wink*

Of Dreamcatchers and Giveaways...

GIVEAWAY Hey guys... I realised I haven't really been chatty on my blog since sometime now... Earlier I used to talk about my life, share little anecdotes about the pati and even talk about my work in almost all blog posts of mine... But all of it started dwindling and writing blog posts became more a chore for me than something that would previously help me relax and unwind.

And then Ishleen Kaur happened...

Heylo makeup lovers!
Some of us really obsessed with makeup, while some of us are obsessed with hoarding it! And if you are something like me, you are most probably than not obsessed with both!
You may have 8 pink lipsticks or 12 red lipsticks, but only a true makeup lover will understand that each of our babies have their own special position in our beaming hearts and none of them ever lets us down! And after all, each pink has a different undertone, and even if it doesn’t, we want it anyway! Don’t we girls?

Some trips are special... Could be because of a special someone, could be because of the destination itself, could be the journey :) Well I had a special trip the other day when I traveled to Bombay for a day and while I was on the way to the station to catch my train back to Pune, I stopped at The Body Shop...

Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover Foundation SPF 25 Review!ISLM Writer: Ishleen
Hello gorgeous ladies!

So the wedding season has started and we all have been ton loads of busy in trying to keep up with the hectic but fun period that comes each year at this time! Long nights of sangeet and early morning rituals, not to forget the high dose of sugary nd greasy foods that we tend to gorge upon, do take a toll on the skin! And no matter what skincare regime you try on, a pimple, some spots, and a blemish or two, would definitely welcome you in these days! And yes, dark circles, how can we forget them?

Maybelline Fashion Eyebrow Shaper Pencil #BrowsOnFleek

Review: Maybelline Fashion Eyebrow Shaper Pencil
I HATE waking up early. I just abhor it... And I was having a wonderful time the past 4 years as the company I was working for let me reach work at noon everyday. Of course I left late in the evening so as to compensate (I don't shirk from work you see :P).
However, I have switched jobs now and my new workplace is pretty far from where I live. And if that wasn't enough, everyone at my new workplace is in early, like really early :/
