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.

Review: Herbs & More Vitamin Therapy Face Mist - Olive
This week's been treating me pretty rad! *touchwood*
I have gymmed everyday this past week, my weight is under control, I found my HG everyday foundation and my skin has never been better... What can I say, its Karma and well the Vitamin Therapy Face Mist by Herbs and More that I have been using since the past two weeks...

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…

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...

Comparison Review: Bed Head TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream Vs BBlunt Climate Control Anti-Frizz Cream

Comparison Review: Bed Head TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream Vs BBlunt Climate Control Anti-Frizz Cream
The title of the post is quite a handful don't you think?
Well, like I told you all on snapchat, I will not be doing product reviews that often anymore cause I plan on concentrating more on comparison reviews and giving you the low down between which is the better out of 2 or even 3 products... I think these comparison posts are more helpful and are a little more interesting than simple, off the mill, plain reviews :)
What say you?

REVIEW: Kiko Milano Luxurious Lashes Extra Volume Brush Mascara

Review of Kiko Milano Luxurious Lashes Extra Volume Brush Mascara
So today I was browsing a furniture website for you know some furniture... I need a wooden trunk in my life for no reason at all and I need a full length mirror with a stand and wooden frame for self obsession purposes. See? I can easily justify the wants in my life...

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.

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.

Review of Maybelline Colossal Kajal in Super Black
My mind is blank! I have been sitting, staring at my laptop screen for the last 35 minutes and I cannot come up with something to start my review... Wow! Do bloggers get writer's block too? OMG that sounds so obnoxious... I am no writer... But I swear I am blocked!

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.

Hello munchkins! So after about 4 months with ISLM and its readers, who all can actually claim to know me or say that they know the writer behind all those desi-toned posts? So if you just thought that oh yes, she is the mad woman who is in love with her nude lipsticks; girl I love you! Like, seriously, I just fell in love with you, and ofcourse, with one more nude lipstick from the house of maybelline! You knew that was coming, right?

REVIEW: Island Kiss Lip Moisturisers

REVIEW: Island Kiss Lip Moisturisers
I have been blogging about beauty and makeup since more than 5 years now and talking about the same brands, similar shades and almost duplicate products gets really monotonous... And hence when I got sent a few samples of these Island Kiss Lip Moisturisers, it felt like a whiff of fresh air :)

ISLM Writer: Nimisha
After the humungous success of the 'Pure Reds' collection,  L’Oreal Paris had come out with the 'Exclusive Pinks'. Having already heard about their launch in the international markets, I was waiting with crossed fingers for their launch in India. So, the other day when I was shopping around with one of friend's, I insisted on finally getting my hands on them at the L’Oreal Paris counter to finally check it out.

Rene Furterer Paris Shampoo And Conditioner Duo Review!

Rene Furterer Paris Shampoo And Conditioner Duo Review!ISLM Writer: Ishleen
Hello Munchkins! How is everyone doing? I do not know if anyone of you noticed but I stole a couple of days off of ISLM as I have been shifting homes! And man, is it tormenting! I get pretty attached to people and things alike and it is never easy for me to part ways! And all this physical as well as emotional assault that I have been going through has been undoubtedly taking a toll on both my skin and hair! And along with all this, there was a shampoo conditioner duo which I had been testing since the past few weeks now! Did the duo help me manage my hair better or added to the assault? Let's just find it out!

Hello lovelies! How is everyone doing? Winters are finally taking a back seat, and even Samyukta is about to declare the end of fall here on ISLM! Yes, yes, that was a little teaser for all you guys! Anyhow, summers or winters, if there is one quintessential product which a girl needs all around the year--it is the very basic yet utterly important Lip balms! You know how everyone claims about the skin on the lips being 10 times thinner than the facial skin and stuff, yes that shizz is true and this should be a disclaimer enough for al you pretty ladies to stock up on some! After all, dry, parched and flaky lips are never a good sight!

REVIEW: NIVEA Body Lotions - All Variants

REVIEW: NIVEA Body Lotions - All Variants
Nivea never fails to bring up fond childhood memories for me... My sister, my mum and I all three of us swear by NIVEA where body lotions and face creams are concerned... They are not just reasonably priced but they are genuinely quality products and do wonders for your skin. In the same vein I am going to be reviewing 4 variants of Nivea Body Lotion and I am sure you will find one of them will surely suit your needs.
