REVIEW: Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Lipstick Crayon in Scarlett O'Hara

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.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer Review

The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer Review
ISLM Writer: Hina

Hellooooo my lovelies,
Here I am with my review of The Body Shop Tea Tree pore minimizer. I simply adore this product.
It was during one of my random visits to The Body shop that I glanced upon this beauty. At first I was not sure on how to use the product, however the SA somehow convinced me it is worth the money and after using it for more than a year now, I must say, I am head over heels for this product.

I am so impressed by this product that I can skip my daily dose of BB cream but not this. It’s that one go to product I would carry with me in my handbag. It can be used on its own for a natural smooth finish and can also be doubled up as a base or primer prior to applying foundation/BB cream. It makes my skin glow. Just a little pore minimizer, topped with translucent powder, lip gloss and an eyeliner and you are all set to go! It works for me as a multi purpose product because it tightens, moisturises, hydrates, mat…

REVIEW: MAC Amorous Lipstick

Review of MAC Amorous Lipstick
ISLM Contributor: Arshi 
I know I’ve been away again for a while and this scorching summer heat has turned me all the more lazy. Hope the summer heat is being kind with you all. It isn’t with us! On summer days like these, I usually don’t like to wear a lot of makeup on my oily face. Lipsticks come as a saviour during such times. Just dab on some color on your lips and you’re ready to go!

REVIEW: Four Fountains Spa, Gurgaon

A visit to The Four Fountains Spa in Gurgaon.
Guest Post By: Raunak
Hello my lovely girls……….a big bear hug to all of you.
Okay so I am very new to the concept of spas. Relaxation by massages, aroma and strokes…..all this is fairly new to me.
I was determined to experience what is all the fuss about.

Lakme seems is on a roller coaster these days. They have been coming up with many great products which are affordable as well as superb in performance.
They have launched a 9-5 range specifically for office ladies. Under this they have come up with gorgeous lipsticks which made lipgloss girl like me to use lipsticks. They have also come up with 15 amazing nail paint shades which seem to be tailor made for office goers. 

BUDGET WEDNESDAYS: Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Daily Scrub

Review of Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Daily Scrub in Budget Wednesdays
Since the time I started with this Budget Wednesdays feature, my weekly grocery shopping has become so much more enjoyable! I obviously spend more time lingering around the aisles holding beauty and bath products and well yeah I have been invariably exceeding my weekly grocery budgets as well...
But well, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, right ;)

REVIEW: Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Blue

Review of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Blue
As I sit here drafting this post while simultaneously watching Ghana fight it out with the USA in the FIFA World Cup 2014, I cannot help but feel sad for Portugal and the way they were washed out by the mighty "Aryans"... Portugal is my favorite team (Spain comes a close second), mostly due to my obsession with Cristiano Ronaldo but I like Pepe and Coentrao too and so Pepe's Red Card was something that completely broke my heart tonight.

REVIEW: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

Review of Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer
For those who didn't know, concealers are of two types... One that actually conceal that are thick in consistency and are used to conceal dark spots, acne marks and the like and the other type that act more like highlighters while concealing only lightly. The latter type generally have a runny consistency and have some shimmer particles that act as highlighters.

REVIEW: L'Oreal Moist Mat (Matte) Lipstick in Lincoln Rose

Review of L'Oreal Moist Mat (Matte) Lipstick in Lincoln Rose

The most talked about and perhaps the most sought after lipstick shade from L'Oreal's L'Ore Lumiere Cannes Film Festival 2014 collection is Lincoln Rose. And the whole hullabaloo was created by our erstwhile Miss World, Ashwarya Rai who looked ethereally beautiful in it...
So today ladies and gentlemen, I am taking this opportunity to review this gorgeous shade of Red that promises to suit all Indian skintones!

BUDGET WEDNESDAYS: Bare Essentials Nail Polish Remover Pads

Review of Bare Essentials Nail Polish Remover Pads
Two things that I hate about changing my nail polish is the drying time and the hassle of removing old nail polish from my nails... Both tasks seem really daunting to me and are so time consuming that many a times I give up and leave my nails bare...
Its so much easier that way but so not pretty :/

NOTD: Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Nail Paint in All That Glitters

Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Nail Paint in All That Glitters
Maybelline had struck jackpot when it launched its Color Show range of nail enamels... Bright hues, quick drying, pretty packaging and extremely comfortable to the pocket were some features that made Maybelline Color Show Nail Enamels a huge hit with everyone... We were all bust getting ourselves gorgeous shades after shades and filling up our vanity drawers when Maybelline shocked us (pleasantly) once again... With Color Show Glitter Mania Nail Enamels...

REVIEW: Lancome Cesigner Bloom Lipstick in Sheen

REVIEW of Lancome Designer Bloom Lipstick in Sheen
Guest Post By: Mrittika
At times I really wonder the evolution of different textures, finishes and looks of makeup. I mean who made all these???

So here today I’ll be sharing a lipstick with a sheen finish. Well this lipstick was a gift from my aunty from US quite some time back. I was using this lipstick every day. I don’t know but I felt that the day I applied this lipstick, my day went well. Yes, it doesn’t make any sense but somehow I was kind of superstitious as I was going through a bad phase at work.

REVIEW: Maybelline Color Show Nail Paint in Velvet Wine

Review of Maybelline Color Show Nail Paint in Velvet Wine
Guest Post by Priyanka
Hey there!
ColorShow nail paints have been raved about by international bloggers for a very long time, and now that this range has been introduced in India Indian bloggers have also begun to do the same.
But honestly, the best part is that they retail at $2.99 (approx 185INR) for 0.23 oz (6.8 ml) but in India the price is a mere 75INR for 6 ml! How amazing, right?
With 40 colours in their range with 8 more glitter polishes being introduced, you are sure to find the colour you adore!

REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Aqua Essence UV Protector

Review of L'Oreal Paris Aqua Essence UV Protector
I have been having trouble sticking to my diet and exercise regimen lately. As much as I love staying in shape, 2014 is proving to be a year of binge eating, random sleep patterns, a lot of overwork and hence almost zero time to hit the gym... As a result, my skin's been acting up, my hair's dried up (yes more!) and well I am gradually coming to terms with the fact that I am actually aging, my skin especially... Its starting out to be a sob story but honestly, I 've been in need of a good cribbing session since a long long time...

Come on! We all have those moments, now don't we! :)

REVIEW: L’Oreal Super Liner Gelmatic Pen in Glamour Gold

Review of L’Oreal Super Liner Gelmatic Pen in Glamour Gold
Guest Post By: Priyanka

Hey there!
I think it’s safe to say that most Indian girls started their foray into eye makeup with kajal, went on to pen style eyeliners and thereby graduated to liquid liners once they craved the crisp smoothness that they offer.
Kids these days have an option of using gel liners to garner that crisp line but sometimes the whole brush drama might just be a bit too cumbersome, which is where the retractable design of L’Oreal Gelmatic Eyeliner will come in handy.

BUDGET WEDNESDAYS: Johnsons Baby Skincare Wipes

Review of Johnsons Baby Skincare Wipes as a Makeup Remover
I love blogger events where I get to meet with and learn from other beauty bloggers. There's always something to learn, some tricks, some tips and sometimes about unique products. One such learning was from Jyoti of Everything That Matters, with whom I traveled and shared a room in Mumbai during the Indiblogger #DovePlay meet...

REVIEW: Za True White Day Cream from The House of Shiseido

Review of Za True White Day Cream from The House of Shiseido
The Indian market perhaps the Asian market is abuzz with loads of whitening products and honestly I give a shit about fairness or whitening products but when you get back to work and see PR samples sitting on your testing table (yup the pati knows to keep my PR boxes on my testing table only) you have no choice but to sample the wares. I generally give reviewing these "whitening" products a miss but I have honestly read so much about Za that my curiosity got the better of me...


So I read the product carton back to back and top to bottom and you will be surprised at what I discovered...

REVIEW: Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Khol in Violet

Review of Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Khol in Violet
Since my childhood I was never a very artistic kid. I mean generally children supposedly love to draw and color and stuff but I never enjoyed it and even though my parents tried to get me into the "groove" I never relented. Imagine the frustration they had especially since one of them is a fabulous oil painter and the other is into creating some out of this world sketches... And so finally they gave up on me...

Review of L’Oreal Super Liner Gelmatic Pen in Blue Force
Guest Post By: Priyanka
Hey there!
Like any other makeup enthusiast, I know that gel liners are the new muses of the makeup world. The budge proof water resistant formula with amazing longevity makes it the perfect pick for fashionistas everywhere. But the problem with regular gel liners is that they come in pots which need to be used with brushes and all that jazz. Finding the brush, using it and then cleaning up isn’t exactly the most time efficient thing for most time strapped mornings.

BUDGET WEDNESDAYS: Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balms

Reviewing Maybelline Baby Lips on Budget Wednesdays
A girl cannot have enough shoes, they say... You need ballet flats and cute wedges and pretty kitten heels and some hot stilettos and hippy flip flops and well some ballet flats and some more of those cute wedges and well the cycle continues... Doesn't it? :) The same goes with lip balms for me... I need some cocoa flavored ones and some vanilla flavored ones, then throw in a couple of fruity flavours, top it off with some minty ones and then again I want some of those cocoa butter ones...

Oh come on! A girl's gotta do what she's gotta do ;)
