REVIEW: NYX Cosmetics Matte Bronzer in Deep Tan

I wear makeup everyday... It started out with simply a kajal in high school which slowly but surely graduated to lip glosses. Mascara followed suit and one day I found myself not able to go on without a blush and an eye brow pencil as well... Lately however, the latest to join my "everyday" makeup must dos are highlighters and matte bronzers...

I don't contour so much but I have come to realise that strategically placed bronzers and highlighters can do wonders for one's look and amp it up to look effortlessly chiseled. Now, who wouldn't want that?

Enter NYX Matte Bronzer...

Finding matte bronzers in India is quite a task and then when you narrow your search to drugstore brands, it is next to impossible to find a decent and a truly matte bronzer... I was honestly tired of using my MAC Cork eye shadow as a bronzer because I couldn't make up my mind about spending a bomb on something as frivolous as a bronzer... And then NYX entered the Indian markets and changed everything...

Price of NYX Matte Bronzer

It costs INR 850/-

The NYX Matte Bronzer comes in 3 shades - Light, Medium and Deep Tan... I picked up Deep Tan because I wanted to use it as a contour shade. If you are pale skinned and need something to simply "warm" up your complexion then Medium Tan should do. However, for contouring purposes Deep Tan is something you would want to consider. However, if you are dark skinned then you may find even Deep Tan to be a little too light and hence ineffective for contouring.
What I really like about the shade selection in the Matte Bronzer department by NYX is the fact that it does not have an Orange undertone and hence it works great to create depth and impart dimension to your makeup.

Texture wise it is very finely milled and is hence smooth and silky, which makes it a joy to apply on your skin. It has no fragrance and it can boast of a staying power of over 6 hours, which I think is fabulous!

However, my most favourite feature of the matte bronzer is that fact that it is not over pigmented. It is rather pretty light in a single coat and hence is great for beginners as well as for when you are in a hurry and are prone to make mistakes with your makeup. That said, the bronzer is build-able and hence it is very easy to find the right shade of "darkness" that you may covet to look beautifully contoured.

Overall Rating:

I highly recommend getting this bronzer in the shade Deep Tan in you are looking to contour

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?

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
