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...

"What about snapchat", he asked... And I simply scrunched my nose and said, "I don't use it much". He was shocked to say the least...

I decided to explore Snapchat a little more...

And 3 weeks later, I am hooked!

Why Is Snapchat Awesome?

Snapchat literally provides a breath of fresh air... Agreed that it is simply a photo and video sharing app but it is very different from Instagram and Facebook and here is how:
  1. Whatever you post (snap or snapchat story) is visible only for 24 hours. Once your snapchat story is 24 hours old, it is deleted forever. So your wall is not crowded with crores and crores of pictures and videos that you have already viewed. Its like it comes with its own cleanup tool :)
  2. It enables people to be in touch with each other real time! I post a snap and you reply to it immediately with either another snap or text. That's it... After I see your reply, it is gone forever!
  3. There are no followers on Snapchat :) Yes you do follow people (snapchat says 'Add as a Friend') but people cannot see the number of the followers they have. Thus you cannot buy fake followers. Additionally, brands haven't yet figured out a way to have for digital influencers to flood their snapchat with not always genuine endorsements. This makes snapchat stories of most bloggers rather genuine and real!

Why Should You Follow Me On Snapchat?

  1. I am now living on snapchat. I snap anything that catches my fancy and hence if you would like to follow my daily, mundane routine then add me as a friend on Snapchat :)
  2. I post more videos on snapchat. I do mini-reviews of new products, I share my thoughts when I come across something interesting in a magazine, I even talk about the traffic on snapchat... So yeah adding me on snapchat is like having a mini visual radio experience ;)
  3. I generally do my shopping with Snapchat. Whenever I am not sure of buying a certain dress or a top or a lipstick, I snapchat it and people help me decide. It's literally like shopping with yours friends virtually!
  4. Instagram is all about filters and snapchat helps me share with my friends the "real" deal without the added skin smoothening and color enhancing touch-ups!
  5. You can ask me queries and questions and even give me suggestions real time. Its like us having a real conversation :)

How Can You Follow Me On Snapchat?

  1. My snapchat handle is @samyukta_islm. You can "Search by Username" and then add me as a friend.
  2. You can take a snap (open snapchat, point your snapchat camera at the image below and long press your screen). I will be automatically added as your friend.

Whats your take on snapchat? Are you as addicted as I am?
Leave me your snapchat handles in the comments... I am looking to follow people there :)

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…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
