REVIEW: Colorbar Perfect Match Beauty Balm (BB Cream)


I like being tanned. The fact that all kinds of makeup look fabulous on tanned skin is a reason, yes... But the fact that it validates my outdoorsy activities gives me kind of satisfaction that is second to none. I play an hour of Lawn Tennis every morning and hence the tanning is a given especially in these Summer months...




However, not everything is hunky-dory with a tan. Apart from the fact that it is next to impossible to tan evenly, the fact that your foundation shade is continuously changing is something that I loathe dealing with when tanned. And hence I decided to take a hiatus from using foundations and turned to BB Creams instead... I have always been a huge fan of The Body Shop Vitamin E BB Cream but this time I was looking for something new, something that I hadn't tried before and something whose reviews I had not read before because simply put I wanted to be surprised...

So I walked up to the Colorbar Counter and got myself matched to the shade Honey Glaze 002 in the Colorbar Perfect Match Beauty Balm.

 The first thing I noticed about the BB cream when I first swatched it on my forearm was the fact that it felt very light and blended right into my skin... I immediately bought it since I had been struggling with the summer heat and I literally was looking for something that would disappear into my skin...

Price of Colorbar Perfect Match Beauty Balm

It costs INR 550/-

I have been using this BB cream continuously for the past 2 weeks and I am highly impressed with this product. It gets absorbed right into my skin without making it look oily, shiny. powdery or patchy rather it leaves a velvety finish on my skin and it makes me look healthy. Additionally, it has very light coverage but it magically evens out the skintone making one look naturally flawless! I am not kidding when I say that it is probably one of the best drugstore BB Creams I have ever used!






The BB Cream itself is of a runny consistency, however when you spread it, it dries up real fast and hence you have got to blend it the moment you dot it on your face. Another con of the product is that it applies patchy if you have not moisturised your skin properly and hence you have got to prime your skin well before applying this BB Cream.

The tube contains very less product and I am already on my second tube after using the first one for 10-12 days...

Recommendation:
I highly recommend this BB cream and I think it would suit beauties across all skin types.

Overall Rating:
8.5/10

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? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

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 ski…
