All I know are sad songs, sad songs
Darling
All I know are sad songs! I have been obsessed with this song the whole day today! I know I posted videos with this song playing in the background umpteen number of times on Snapchat today and I can imagine how irritating it must have gotten for those of you all who are not a fan of it :P

Bear with me please :)

REVIEW: NYX HD Blush in HDB1 Bronzed
So I really want to rush through this post cause it's my bestie's husband's birthday in 4 hours and we are all going out and as usual I am running late... But no I won't rush through this, I promise cause well it is a review post and reviews should be lengthy and should go on and on and on, right? Wrong!

I believe reviews can be effective even if they are short but should be to the point and informative. Do you believe the same?

My Envy Box - July 2016

My Envy Box - July 2016
As I sat in bed this morning cupping a steaming mug of fresh ginger and green tea, nursing a throat infection and a fever, the impending day seemed bleak to me. And the fact that we have not really been seeing the sun since the past month now was making matters worse. So I started scrolling through my Snapchat (@samyukta_islm) feed to just take my mind of my sickness when I saw Bhumika of New Love Makeup talking of the latest My Envy Box on her snapchat and it just got me excited!

REVIEW SWATCHES: Favourite Lakme Enrich Matte Lipsticks

Review & Swatches of My Favourite Lakme Enrich Matte Lipsticks
Every once in a while a drugstore (afforadable) makeup brand comes up with a new launch that totally blows my socks off. Its a rare occurrence but it happens... The last time it happened was when Maybelline launched the Lip Gradation Lip Colors in India and I was complete bowled over. This time its Lakme that has me jump up with joy with their Enrich Matte Lipsticks...

It is 20 minutes past midnight, I am watching Master Chef Australia while writing this post and I am craving some blueberry cheesecake... Like right now! My cravings during "that time of the month" is so intense that how much ever self restraint I try to practice, I fail at it miserably... I generally eat clean and try to eat healthy but a week before my periods are due I start craving everything unhealthy, mainly sweets and carbs... Sighhhhhh...

Review: Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lipstick - Cherry Wine

Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lipstick Cherry Wine ReviewISLM Writer: Sanchita
When everyone is busy buying summer-y lipstick shades like tangerine, corals and pinks, I am busying purchasing dark berry, plums and maroons. Well, I am in love with dark shades right now and has been continuously wearing few shades from the Elle 18’s newest launch - the Color Pops Matte range. I have always rated Elle 18 somewhat average as I found their products okay-ish but this launch was a bomb.com. Read on the review of the lipstick to know more.

As I sit here eating a bowl of sprouts and sipping on a cold glass of lemon and ginger water, I immerse my feet in a tub of warm water and sigh at my aching leg muscles. I just got back from the gym and running 5 kms daily on the treadmill has got me craving some soothing massages... I'll probably book an appointment for the weekend...

Do I Recommend The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation?

Review: The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation
I had updated on snapchat (@samyukta_islm) last week that I suspected the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation to be breaking me out and hence I have been keeping a keen eye on the foundation since.

I Want To Love The Maybelline Magnum Barbie Mascara But I Don't

I Want To Love The Maybelline Magnum Barbie Mascara But I Don't
You know the time when you have been eyeing a new restaurant in town but have not been able to make time to actually go and sample it out? However, finally one fine evening everything seems to be falling into place and you at last make time to get dinner reservations at the restaurant... By the time you get your table, you realise that you've waited for this moment for so long that you really want to love it...
So much so that you choose to ignore little flaws here and there and because the food's genuinely tasty you try to ignore that the service sucked... And so that you can confidently tell yourself that the restaurant is everything you wished for, you make another reservation, this time for lunch. But history repeats itself, the food comes out brilliantly but the service simply doesn't seem up to the mark... You still "forgive" the "little" flaw until the server drops a bowl of hot…
