Experiential: Sheer Bliss at the Quan Spa

Experience Sheer Bliss at the Quan Spa, JW Marriott
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...

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!

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...

Top 10 Makeup Products for Summers

Top 10 Makeup Products for SummersISLM Writer: Sanchita
Hello everyone! It is literally a difficult task to wear makeup during this scorching heat. Nevertheless, we girls never step back. All you need is proper makeup products that won’t melt, clog pores or break you out like hell. Indian summers are awful and unbearable especially when you are stepping out of the comfort of air conditioners. Ever heard the term “Less is more”? Well, that’s what works for summer.

REVIEW: Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Lipstick Crayon in Scarlett O'HaraISLM Writer: Nimisha
When half of India is lurching to the heat, I am enjoying my summers with a tall glass of iced tea and my red lips. Ah, seems like I am on a spree of flaunting my reds, where most of the babes are dolling up in the pastel hues.

REVIEW: Coloressence Vibgyor Matte Eye Shadow EM-4

Coloressence Vibgyor Matte Eye Shade EM-4
ISLM Writer: Sanchita
Hello dolls! It has been ages that I wrote for ISLM and God! How I missed it! I have been MIA for a long time due to some reasons but now it time for an eyeshadow review. I have a weakness for matte brown eye shadow and I generally hoard every possible one in the market. MAC is a little bit ‘out-of-my-range’ because I am still a college student and hence I concentrate more on other budget friendly ones. I suddenly saw this matte brown eye shadow from Coloressence I stock and wasted no time in ordering this. Read on to know about my thoughts on the product.

Every once in a while you come across a product that you find is so fabulous and yet it's probably the least talked about in the market, let alone raved about... MAC Club eyeshadow is a stupendous example of this...

The other day when our lovely Sam posted about the best buys from Sephora, I couldn't help but notice the Burt Bee's Hand Salve. That was enough to push me off to a stroll to Phoenix Market City.
Yup, that's where you find Sephora in the hustles of Pune.

Top 5 Must Buy Sephora India Products
I remember when Sephora first opened shop in India in 2013... It was a grand opening in New Delhi and I felt dejected as ever... I wanted a Sephora in my city too and miraculously my prayers were heard. The second Sephora India store opened in Pune in Jan 2015 and since then I have been slowly but steadily trying their products out...
