H2O Plus Milk Body Lotion Review

The H2O Plus Milk Body Lotion came with the Nourishing Milk Bath Trio that had a hand and nail cream and shower gel along with this body lotion. This kit was on a sale and I got it dirt cheap!!!! I don't remember the price now and also the same kit is now available in larger quantity along with a body scrub. Go here to see the same. I had no idea about how this would be when I got it and now to know my experience read further :)

Estee Lauder Automatic Brow Pencil Duo Review

My eyebrows are not so thick and dark so I always wanted a good brow pencil. All these days I used to swipe my kajal on my brows and spread it with a brush or my fingers to give a even and dark brows. Though my brows have a decent shape without the thickness it always made my face dull. Finally I got this brow pencil and here is the review for all you ladies :)

Biotique Bio Fruit Whitening Lip Balm Review

During my mini haul last month I got this Biotique Bio Fruit Whitening Lip Balm. I already have my Burt's Bees lip balm but still when I saw the cute little tub in H&G store I really wanted to try this one.

It is a baby girl !!!!

Hi All,

I am here for a short while to share the happy news with all you ladies. Thanks for all your wishes and love and yes I delivered a baby girl this Nov 10, exactly on my due date. Doctor said only 4% of mums deliver the baby on their due date and I am one of the lucky mum :) Also I really wanted a girl baby that too wanted my baby's birthday to be 10-11-10 and both did happen :)



In spite of the excruciating pain my happiness knew no bounds when I saw my baby for the first time. Motherhood is the best feeling I'd say. My hubby was there with me through out labour and delivery and he was my pillar of strength. He was continuously standing beside me for 10 hrs !!!! His suppport made this delivery a normal one and I don't have enough words to thank him. Till date he is helping me out in each and every way he can. Thank you Raj :)

Once I learn how to manage the kid and also find some time for myself I shall be back here again. Until then bye bye ladies. Love you all.

Lakme Eye Artist Review

During my casual shopping spree few months back I bumped into the Lakme counter to get the Lakme Aquashine Lip Color in Old Rose. I’ve been craving for this gloss and never intended to buy anything else (as usual) but then the SA showed me this Lakme Eye Artist Pen. She just applied one stroke on my eyes and I fell in love with this that I got one for myself immediately. [Again as usual :)]

ELF Shimmering Facial Whip Review

ELF Shimmering Facial Whip was a gift from ELF for purchasing few other products from their brand. As I like shimmer in anything be it my eye shadow or lipgloss or even my compact I was more than excited to use this facial whip. I was not sure how to use but then the pack said it can be used to highlight cheeks, lips and eyes. There are 6 shades available and the one I got was Citrus.

ELF Studio Brush Collection - Quick Look

I don't have a proper brush for my make up kit so thought I should get a brush set soon. That is when I came across the ELF Studio Line 11 Piece Brush Collection. This comes in a professional black pouch that has eleven brushes in it. I think this would be more than sufficient for us to complete a perfect make up.

The Pouch

The brushes are really soft and comfortable to use. I haven't started using this yet, just tried a few a couple of times. So here are all the brushes in the kit and will review these soon.


Neatly Packed Brushes

  
Lets see the brushes one by one.

    ELF Nail Polish Remover Pads Review

    First I came across this Nail Polish Remover Pads at IMBB and I really wanted to try it. Since we don’t get ELF products in Chennai I had asked my sister to send this for me. The box was much smaller than I had imagined and I was not very convinced initially but now I don’t regret buying these.

    Bourjois Elastic Mascara Review

    I have been craving for this mascara ever since they made an announcement about its launch. As soon as they launched it I was at their counters for this mascara and Bourjois Rose Exclusif Gloss. I tried both, loved both and bought both :) To be mentioned this is my first purchase from Bourjois and I am really in love with this brand already.

    The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Hand and Body Lotion Review

    I got this Cocoa Butter Hand and Body lotion as a birthday gift from my friend this April. I wanted to get this one as it says it helps in reducing or preventing stretch marks and also is very moisturizing. Since I knew that Bio Oil is not available in India, I wanted to use this temporarily. I have been using this lotion since then and half of the bottle is still left for use.

    Maybelline Whitestay UV Compact Review


    This post is for Sonia again, as she wanted to know about this compact. Are you there Sonia?

    I got this compact while my Revlon one had completely hardened and it was no longer a pressed powder but a pressed rock..lol!!! I got the Maybelline Compact in Nude, which was perfect for my skin tone. This is my daily use compact that I carry with me wherever I go.

    Avon Mousse/Cream Eyeshadow Review

    This review is for Sonia :)

    I got this eyeshadow long long back, to be honest I don’t remember when ;) My aunt was an Avon representative and she used to get compliments whenever she exceeds the target. This eyeshadow was one of such gifts from Avon. Since my aunt hardly uses any eye shadows she passed this on to me like she usually does. Ya she is soooo sweet :)


    I am just a starter when it comes to eye make up and when I was clearing my entire make up stuff I found this cute little pot. I just took a little amount and tried it on my eyes and it looked simple and neat. All it leaves in my skin is little shimmer and no color. So this can be either used alone or even with other matte eye shadows.

    Biotique Kajal Review

    This post is for Anamika who wanted me to review this kajal. Hope you like it Anamika :)

    I got the kajal like 2 years back and I am using it almost everyday from then on. I can never be without a kajal even if I am really busy or sick you can see me wearing a kajal. So in spite of using this for the past 2 years there is still some amount left. Once I finish this I am waiting to try a different brand, as I am too bored with this.

    What's in my handbag?

    When I was changing my handbag I just thought I should remove few things, as it was too heavy to carry around always. So after filtering these were the products left in my handbag. Thought of sharing this with you guys as well.

    Bio Oil Review

    As I am pregnant and my skin is stretching beyond its capability I really needed a good moisturizer, which at the same time also prevents stretch marks. I heard about many products and decided to get this based on Cynthia’s recommendation and now I don’t regret :)

    How to treat dry skin - 3 Dos and Don'ts

    I have extremely dry skin and over a period of time I learnt a lot on how to protect and nourish my skin and also prevent it from dryness. I would like to share my experiences with you and if you have a dry skin try these and let me know whether it helped you as well.

    To Do
    • Drink plenty of water- This is something that is not going to harm anyone in any way. The more you drink water the better your skin is. I was a person consuming hardly 2 glasses of water everyday but now I easily consume 2 ltrs/day and this has helped me a lot in getting rid of dryness. My skin used to be so dry that I never wish to expose my legs. After increasing the fluid levels in my diet, it worked like a magic and now I don't hesitate to flaunt my shiny legs. If you are not used to drinking heaps of water then start from 4 glass/day and slowly increase as much as you can.
