Entry1 (Cotton Candy Eyes) For VanityNoApologies' Makeup Contest

Heylo people :) Here's me participating in an eye makeup contest organized by L'Oreal and VanityNoApologies :) The link for the contest is here

I have done a sparkly pastel eye makeup that is fun and fancy at the same time :) It reminds me of cotton candies :) I have used pastel pink, green and blue eye shadows to give it a cool yet ethereal feel to the whole look :)

Quoting Anshita: "Come up with an eye look that involves bright and colourful shades. Make sure the look is wearable so all the people here get some nice ideas to try out next time."
This look is wearable and I myself wore it yesterday! So here's the look :)

The products that I have used are as follows:
1. Eye shadows from Sleek iDivine "Original" palette.
2. Maybelline Gel Liner in my waterline.
3. Sleek Black eye shadow as a liquid liner using Inglot Duraline on my upper lashline.
4. MAC Zoom Fast Lash Mascara
5. MAC Ricepaper as highlighter.
6. MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as base

Hope you guys …

REVIEW & LOTD: Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner

I have been eying this product since a long time but whenever I would ask for it at any Maybelline counter, they would tell me that it was "out of stock". That made me long for it so much that when I finally bought one I was ecstatic and my happiness knew no bounds :) I felt like a kid who has been bought a new toy but has been asked to wait till morning to play with it... I just kept waiting for it to be morning so that I could finally wear it to office :)

Ok, let me tell you guys about it a bit. This is for those who already don't know about it's wonderful qualities :)

 As the name suggests, it is a gel eyeliner, which is extremely smudge proof and long lasting. It is jet black! And when I say jet black, I mean really really JETTEST of BLACK!!! :D I so love it for that...

As is evident from the pic, it comes in a cute glass container with an Aluminium cap and a super soft yet stiff brush. I am really impressed with the brush! The brush is just so perfect and so pr…

REVIEW: Maybelline Colorsensational in "Warm Me Up"

Heylo Ladies... It's been so long since I posted anything on my blog and really I have no reasons for it!!! It's just that I got plain lazy :P Well, Winters make me lazy, they make me FAT!!!!
But today one of my readers Zeeba asked me about it and I realized that I need to start posting stuff again and so here I am with a review on a lipstick that I purchased yesterday :)

It is Maybelline's Colorsensational Lipstick in "Warm Me up" 235...

It comes in this really pretty looking case. It is a transparent brown and a steel casing and looks really smart and pretty on the dresser :)
The color is a nude pinkish brown and it has an extremely creamy texture. The lipstick is very moisturizing and is pretty long stay :) I wore it to office today and it stayed post lunch!!! Well I was impressed :)

The great thing about the lipstick is that it doesn't dry ones lips and keep them moisturized all throughout the day. And I am saying this in the middle of Winter!!! :P

READER QUERY: Eye Make-up tricks for eyes with less space between the crease and brow

Heylo people... Am back from my friend's wedding, though am still under a hangover! :P
Here is another query and this time it is from Kaishi's mom... This post is long overdue but I had been so caught up with the wedding stuff that I just couldn't get time to do justice to the query...

How to do makeup for her eyes which has little space between her crease and eyebrow. Her lid is vey wrinkly not because of age but genetic.

A few tips and tricks in order to make up eyes that have little space between the crease and the brow, are wrinkly and might also have dark lids and dark circles are as follows:
1. First off, it's really very important to user an Eye Shadow base as it makes the lid surface even and helps in applying the shadow evenly. It also lightens the lid surface and gives good pigmentation to the shadow. If you do not have an eye shadow base available, you could use a concealer and then set it with loose powder.

2. Second, never use dark shades of…

READER QUERY: Wrinkles on the eyelids and under eyes

Heylo girls :) We have have yet again another reader query... It asks...

Please give me some home remedies for my winkles on my lid and underneath eyes. None eye cream worked for me. Sometimes I use almond oil . It is so drippy that it gets inside my eyes .....Is it very harmful ?
REPLY First of all, using almond oil around your eyes is really good and no even if it enters your eye its not harmful!! :) I myself use Almond oil on my face before I go to sleep at night and it has done wonders for me. My friends tell me that it has helped them reduce dark circles as well... But don't apply it "drippingly"  All you need to do is take some oil on your palm and massage it around the eyes...

Similarly, Olive oil could also be of help to you :) 
Secondly, you could also use HONEY around your eyes. It has very high moisturizing properties. You could mix it with equal quantities of milk and massage around your eyes.
Thirdly, milk-cream i.e. "malai" also have very good moist…

Some images to give you an idea :D

So, today in order to try these colors out, I went a bot overboard and came up with this EOTD :D

REVIEW: ORIFLAME Visions Soul Mates Eye Shadow Duo

REVIEW: Lakme 9 to 5 Intense Shine Eyeliner in Green

I don’t know if I have ever mentioned this before but I am a huge make-up addict. The OTTness has just recently surfaced but you see these things don’t happen just suddenly or so I believe and hence, I know that this addiction has been brewing up since a long long time now, just waiting to rear its Er… pretty head and make its presence felt. You see, it isn’t that I buy whatever I need, its just that I simply buy what I want :P Like I said I am addicted.
So anyways, while I was on one of my these shopping binges, I went to the Lakme counter (Er.. Yes Lakme) in order to check out the new Gypsy collection. I had heard so much about it that I had to had to check it out… So there I was at Mumbai’s Health & Glow browsing through the eye shadow quads that are a part of the much famed Gypsy Collection. Not happy with anything I was just doing a glance over of the counter, when my eyes caught this cute little thing…
Yes Yes! It is the Lakme 9 to 5 Intense Eyeliner in GREEN!!! Yes! Jewel …

REVIEW: L'Oreal Kohl Minerals Eyeliner

I went cosmetics shopping over the weekend in Mumbai and ended up buying a lot of L’Oreal products. One product that I had on my wishlist since pretty long was the Kohl Minerals Powder and so I picked it up with great enthusiasm in Meteorite Blue. I used it this morning for office and have had a mixed feelings experience.
What the site says Whether you're going for dramatic smokey eyes, or a softer romantic 'barely-there' look, Mineral Kohl makes achieving perfect eyeliner easy. In 3 mineral inspired shades the gentle mineral eyeliner is 95% from minerals and perfume, preservative and talc free. The gentle formula is enriched with Vitamin E and Aloe making it suitable for the delicate eye area. It has no Perfumes and no preservatives and contains mineral pigments for gentle definition.
My Experience I purchased it cause it looked different, had a novel packaging and I simply loved the shade of blue that was on offer… Meteorite Blue! Here's a swatch... Packaging Like I already s…

Eye Make-up for Diwali: Golden & Blue Look

With Diwali just a couple of days away, we are all gearing up to look our best for the festival of lights. New clothes, new make-up… It's like you are in paradise :D

The first look that I have tried out for this Diwali look series is a blue and golden eye makeup look.

The products that I have used for this are:
1. L'Oreal Paris ColorAppeal Trio Pro eye shadow: Azur Blonde
2. maXfactor kajal: black
3. ELF liquid eyeliner: black
4. Oriflame Air soft Powder
5. Revlon Waterproof Mascara

The steps are as follows:
1. First, I prepared the base of my eye makeup by dusting some Oriflame Air Soft powder over my lids and also under my eyes. This will delay creasing due to oily lids.
2. Next, I apply the golden shade of shadow over the whole of my lids.
3. Then, taking the midnight blue shadow, I blended it with the golden shadow on the outer 2/3 of my lids. Blending is important here as it will give a finished and a smokey appearance.
4. Then using an angled liner brush and dipping it …

Smokey Eyes for Everyday Wear

Smokey eyes have been IN since a long time now and the make-up trends for Fall Winter 2010 have also been "forecasted" as smokey eyes and bright lips. So, I thought why not go for a smokey eye look that is subtle and can be worn everyday... even to work. And so, I have come up with this look and hence a tutorial to share with you guys :)

The look goes something like this...

Well... For this look I have used the following products:
1. maXfactor Kajal: Black
2. ELF Brightening Eye Color Quad: Drama
3. ELF Liquid Eyeliner

Here go the steps:
1. First of, I use the kajal pencil to line my waterline and the upper lid thickly. It need not be neat, it should just impart a thick black line over the lid.
2. Next, choosing the darkest grey of the shadow quad, smudge it on the kajal that was applied on the upper eye lids and blend them together.
3. Next line the upper lash lines with the liquid eye liner and using a blending/smudging brush smudge the liquid liner on the lids.
4. Then l…
