REVIEW: Coloressence Vibgyor Matte Eye Shadow EM-4

Coloressence Vibgyor Matte Eye Shade EM-4
ISLM Writer: Sanchita
Hello dolls! It has been ages that I wrote for ISLM and God! How I missed it! I have been MIA for a long time due to some reasons but now it time for an eyeshadow review. I have a weakness for matte brown eye shadow and I generally hoard every possible one in the market. MAC is a little bit ‘out-of-my-range’ because I am still a college student and hence I concentrate more on other budget friendly ones. I suddenly saw this matte brown eye shadow from Coloressence I stock and wasted no time in ordering this. Read on to know about my thoughts on the product.

Coffee Breaks With ISLM: When I Grow Up...

Coffee Breaks With ISLM: When I Grow Up...
ISLM Writer: Sabista
As kids, we have so many dreams and aspirations, to become someone or do something that makes our heart content. Over the years of growing up and taking responsibilities, we forget what truly makes us happy and give into the monotony of life. We forget the passion that drives us and start living life like a chore. We ignore our talents to make a livelihood and get lost in the race of life. This results in unhappiness and living a life of regret. No matter what you do or how much you earn, you never really feel content until you do something that makes you happy. Passion drives a person and quenches the thirst of the soul.

Review of Maybelline Colossal Kajal in Super Black
My mind is blank! I have been sitting, staring at my laptop screen for the last 35 minutes and I cannot come up with something to start my review... Wow! Do bloggers get writer's block too? OMG that sounds so obnoxious... I am no writer... But I swear I am blocked!

5 Beauty & Skincare Advice I Would Give My 20 Year Old Self
There is no defying age... It has a way of sneaking up to you when you least expect it to... And hence it is imperative to prepare yourself a little in advance so that you are not taken off-guard and not left high and dry when age strikes...

Are You On Snapchat?

Follow Me on Snapchat...
Last month I met up with an old friend who was visiting India on a mini vacation and we got talking on how easy it is for people to be in touch without having to take much effort, all thanks to social media... Facebook is great for knowing what's going on in everyone's lives, twitter gives an insight on what's going in everyone's heads at a particular time and Instagram is just perfect to actually "see" what's been keeping people busy through the day...

Coffee Breaks With ISLM: What It Feels Like For A Girl

Coffee Breaks With ISLM: What It Feels Like For A Girl ISLM Writer: Sabista
As a woman, I have a lot of cravings, especially ones that pop up post-midnight and having a husband who loves to snack too, life is amazing in terms of post-dinner meals. The best part about going out to eat at midnight? Street food! You can wear your PJs and hop into the car and eat inside the comfort of your car. It is so perfect, isn’t it? Not really. We live in a place where food can be sold at midnight, but a woman cannot feel safe consuming it, out in the open, at midnight; even if she is accompanied by a man. We live in a day and age where a woman who gives birth to mankind is rewarded by dirty stares and cat calls.

MAC Club Eyeshadow - The Underdog

LOTD: MAC Club Eyeshadow
Every once in a while you come across a product that you find is so fabulous and yet it's probably the least talked about in the market, let alone raved about... MAC Club eyeshadow is a stupendous example of this...

Review: Burt's Bees Beeswax And Banana Hand Cream
ISLM Writer: Nimisha
The other day when our lovely Sam posted about the best buys from Sephora, I couldn't help but notice the Burt Bee's Hand Salve. That was enough to push me off to a stroll to Phoenix Market City.
Yup, that's where you find Sephora in the hustles of Pune.

Hello munchkins! So after about 4 months with ISLM and its readers, who all can actually claim to know me or say that they know the writer behind all those desi-toned posts?

Coffee Breaks With ISLM: Depression is Real!

Depression Is For Real
ISLM Writer: Sabista
You fall sick, you get weak, you have headaches, you cannot get up, your head is dizzy, you pass out, you’re taken to a hospital, tests are run, your blood reports are normal…
What happens when your whole mental and physical self is falling apart and yet every medical report comes out normal? What happens when the world thinks you’re acting, when in reality, on the inside, your whole being is in turmoil. Everybody thinks you’re the girl who is crying wolf, when in reality, you’re just in a state where your insides are burning up but you have no physical evidence to prove it.

REVIEW: Island Kiss Lip Moisturisers
I have been blogging about beauty and makeup since more than 5 years now and talking about the same brands, similar shades and almost duplicate products gets really monotonous... And hence when I got sent a few samples of these Island Kiss Lip Moisturisers, it felt like a whiff of fresh air :)

Top 5 Must Buy Sephora India Products

Top 5 Must Buy Sephora India Products
I remember when Sephora first opened shop in India in 2013... It was a grand opening in New Delhi and I felt dejected as ever... I wanted a Sephora in my city too and miraculously my prayers were heard. The second Sephora India store opened in Pune in Jan 2015 and since then I have been slowly but steadily trying their products out...
