Beauty Essentials for Work

Beauty Essentials for Work
My desk at work hold two baskets. Once contains office supplies like whiteboard markers, pens, pencils, erasers and board pins, while the other contains a selected assortment of beauty essentials that come in handy during the day in office...
And today I plan to share it with you all :)

COMPARISON REVIEW: The Body Shop Frosted Plum Hand Cream Vs British Rose Hand Cream Vs Burt's Bees Hand Salve

COMPARISON REVIEW: The Body Shop Frosted Plum Hand Cream Vs English Rose Hand Cream Vs Burt's Bees Hand Salve
I have dry hands, even when I wet my beauty sponge with water I need to apply some form of cream on my hands... So much so that my morning routine consists of taking a shower, after which I apply my face cream (you gotta give it time to get absorbed before applying foundation), then wet my beauty sponge, then apply body butter, wear clothes and finally get down to putting on makeup...

Did you notice the anomaly here? I apply my body butter *after* I have wet my beauty sponge so that my hands are always moisturised!

Makeup Is A Wonderful Thing & LOTD

Makeup Is A Wonderful Thing & LOTD
What I really love about makeup is that there are no rules in it. Living in a society where one is expected to behave in a certain way, live in a certain way, venting out in a creative way with makeup as a medium is truly a welcome change...

Is Micellar Water Breaking You Out?

Is Micellar Water Breaking You Out?
I had done a post a little while ago about the most popular ways of makeup removal where Cleansing Oils and Butters won the race with Micellar water a close third. Seeing how popular Micellar water was and all the hype around it tempted me to give this "revered" product a shot. Hence, on my way back from Italy, I picked up a bottle of Bioderma Micellar water from the Dubai Airport.

REVIEW: Kiko Milano Smart Lip Pencil - 709

Review of Kiko Milano Smart Lip Pencil in 709
Hey guys! I just got back from watching Udta Punjab and I must say that I loved it! Honestly, I wasn't expecting much from it because of the hype probably but I was stunned into silence by the movie. It seriously is a must watch and everybody did such a fabulous job in it... Alia Bhatt especially was outstanding but it would be unfair to not call out the others' performances as well...

My Envy Box June 2016

My Envy Box June 2016
So I am sitting here staring at my computer screen wondering how I should start this post and I can hear Arnab Goswami screaming his lungs out on TV in the other room... Half my brain is trying to get started with this post while the other half is trying its best to understand what the "debate" is really about :P
So you know what, am going to skip the initial chitter-chatter that I generally do in my posts and I shall dive right into today's post...

My Kiko Milano Haul

My Kiko Milano Haul
While I sip on my glass of port and listen to Alex Cruz's music, I cannot help but feel a little sad about how I wasted my Saturday sleeping... I was on leave on Friday (period woes) and I spent 48 hours i.e. Friday and Saturday only sleeping... I did not eat, did not watch television or even check my messages and other stuff on my phone... I simply slept... Periods have that effect on me... You'd think at the age of 30, I'd probably have tamed the monthly visitor but well sorry it just seems so untameable!

Comparison Review: L'Oreal Dry Shampoo Vs Batiste Dry Shampoo Vs BBlunt Dry Shampoo

Comparison Review: L'Oreal Dry Shampoo Vs Batiste Dry Shampoo Vs BBlunt Dry Shampoo
'Tis the season of dry shampoos, my love... Summers and the Monsoons are the two seasons that see me go through dry shampoos like my life depended on them! Its crazy but true! So now that I have gone through quite a number of them, I decided to do a comparison post on the 3 most popular dry shampoos in the Indian market :D
*rubs hands in glee*

Comparison Review: Bed Head TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream Vs BBlunt Climate Control Anti-Frizz Cream

Comparison Review: Bed Head TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream Vs BBlunt Climate Control Anti-Frizz Cream
The title of the post is quite a handful don't you think?
Well, like I told you all on snapchat, I will not be doing product reviews that often anymore cause I plan on concentrating more on comparison reviews and giving you the low down between which is the better out of 2 or even 3 products... I think these comparison posts are more helpful and are a little more interesting than simple, off the mill, plain reviews :)
What say you?
*raises one eyebrow*

Coffee Breaks With ISLM: Feminism - Pseudo or Otherwise

Coffee Breaks With ISLM: Feminism - Pseudo or Otherwise
Feminism is perhaps the most jaded word in India right now and it can boast of a lifespan (with or without relevance) that is much higher than the term "intolerant", which had taken the Indian masses by storm a few months ago...

Everyone has something to say about it. Some are for it, others prefer to stay away from it while many make a daily "living" off it on social media... Whatever the reason, Feminism is sure a favorite, to love or to hate.

So what is Feminism really and do we really understand it?
"The advocacy of women's rights on grounds of equality of the sexes" is how Google defines Feminism but are we misunderstanding it?

My instagram profile gives a lot of information about my personal life, from my profession to my hobbies to even my sun sign and I have many a times thought of adding the term "Feminist" somewhere in there as well. And every time I get such a thought, I ref…

LOTD: Quick Glowing Makeup Look for Rushed Monday Mornings

LOTD: Quick Glowing Makeup Look for Rushed Monday Mornings
My relationship with Mondays can best described as complicated. It's complicated without a doubt. I want to hate Mondays because my Instagram and Facebook feeds tell me to, you know the blah blah about Monday Blues and all that jazz but my mind tells another story :) I find Mondays to be full of hope, hope of new things to come, changes, hope of a productive week at work and a hope of getting time to clean my house...

Nonetheless, my Mondays are always rushed!

I invariably sleep late the night before, I snooze my alarm in the morning for more times than is healthy, you get the drift... And hence when I am finally done with my shower and other necessary morning rituals, I get almost no time to do my makeup... So I take shortcuts that I decided to share with you all today and if you have dry skin and oily lids like me, you might even incorporate it in your rushed Monday Morning makeup rituals ;)
