Best Anniversary and Awesome Gifts :D

This is not a haul post and I am glad I did pass one month successfully :D This Dec 6th was our 3rd anniversary and hubby promised me a surprise. Honestly, I never expected him to take me out for shopping as I do it every single week. All I had in my mind was a weekend in a resort or some candle light dinner but guess what, hubby took me to the mall and said I can just buy anything I want. It was a shock !! 

He said there were 2 reasons
1. For the anniversary
2. Since I won't be shopping for the next 4 months, this was some sort of motivation :p

Pond's Gold Radiance Ultra Rich Night Treatment Capsules


Awaken to the Glow of Gold with
New Pond’s gold radiance™ Ultra Rich Night Treatment Capsules

Real gold serum concentrate and a rich vitamin complex infused in littlecapsules to recapture your youthful radiance.

Ask a woman what bothers her most about her skin and chances are that she will say dryness. It’s true; dryness is a common problem for women, regardless of skin type. However, what they don’t know is that as they age the skin dryness is a symptom and not the problem itself.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter [Berry Smoothie] Review, Swatch and LOTD

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters were on my wishlist even before they were launched in India. I was dying to try these and once they were launched I got soooooooooooooo busy that I became rest less until I laid my hands on these. I was talking to everybody about this lip butter and had 5 shades in my mind when I reached the stores. Unfortunately few colors didn't suit me and one shade was not available :( Finally I just got two and you can see the Haul HERE

Elle 18 Nail Pops [47, 52] Review and NOTD

I don't try [have] too many nail colors as I don't wear them quite often. Varshini once gifted me a very pretty nail color from Elle 18 and suggested me to try another shade which she couldn't get for me. I don't remember which was the one she gave me and which was the one I bought but I love them both equally. One is a very pretty pink and the other one is a pretty coral and you will be seeing both the shades on my nails today.

Not a blush/bronzer girl yet :(

Since I have banned myself from shopping anything for the next 4 months I have to distract myself with something so that I don't get tempted to go to the shops or even visit any online shopping portal. I keep arranging my make up again and again, see what I can put up for a sale and so on. That is when I realized I don't have too many blushers :p So I am definitely buying blushes in April and mean while I am sharing all the blushes I have.

Lakme Black Satin Kajal Review, Swatch and EOTD

Lakme Black Satin Kajal?? And why am I reviewing it now?? Well, I have been using this often these days, especially when I need smokey eyes and that reminded me to review this for all you girls - just to remind about this pretty fat kajal that was once everyone's favorite. This super fat super black kajal was launched as a part of Lakme's Gypsy Collection last year.

Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lip Color [Chestnut] Review, Swatch and LOTD

Today I am sharing a shade that is loved by many of us - Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipcolor in Chestnut. I have been hearing so much about this shade that I always wanted to get one for me. Though I got it very late I am so glad that such a pretty shade found a place in my vanity. If you love pinks then you will love this shade for sure and if you love creamy lipsticks, just go and buy this one.

Lancome Tresor In Love Perfume Review

I am a great fan of Lancome fragrances and if you know me well you know why :) My sis knows this and she wanted me to try something new from Lancome. When she came down for her wedding she got the perfume set from Lancome - Tresor In Love. The packaging is so cute with a tiny black rose tied to its collar and the fragrance is amazing too. It is not that non-musky kinds but still I just loooooooooveeeeeee it :D

L'Oreal Color Infallible Eye Shadow in Eternal Black Review, Swatch and Smokey EOTD

There are certain products which never satisfies my craving if I just get one - the greedy me wants all shades available in the market and one such product is the Loreal Color Infallible Eye Shadows. Eternal Black is the first shade I got from the collection and slowly I am hoping to collect at least 6 of them. I can not call these pigments (not so loose) nor an eye shadow (not so tightly packed), however I like the formula.

MAC Sheertone Powder Blush [Gingerly] Review

I do not have too many blushes with me and the few I have are all my favorites. Recently when I was re arranging my make up stash I thought I'll put up a post on all the blushes I have [Coming Soon !!] and thus asking you girls to suggest more for me to try :) Mean while here is one blush that I am currently in love with and thank you Pree, you made me buy this :) I owe you something big for making me buy Brick O La and Gingerly :D

Chambor Flowing Lipstick Stay On Color with Shea Butter in Fusion Rose Review, Swatch and LOTD

The reviews and swatches of Chambor Flowing Lipsticks tempted me so much that I wanted to try at least three of these. I had the shades Heavenly Rose and Perfect Rose in my mind but they were not in stock and among all they had I liked Fusion Rose only. The SA applied it using a brush and she had applied it so light that I loved it so much. But read more to see how it turned out when I directly applied.

Forest Essentials Silkening Shower Wash Indian Rose Absolute Review

I always love products that comes with good fragrance packed in it and that is how I fell in love with the brands like Crabtree & Evelyn, The Body Shop and recently Forest Essentials. When I visited the store I was too confused on what to pick, so just got the travel kit. The reviews are long due :p So today here is the review of the shower wash [Indian Rose Absolute].

Review requested by Bhumika :)

Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick Apple Springs Review, Swatch and LOTD

Elle 18 lipsticks are one of the cheapest lipsticks which delivers a decent quality for the price. If you are in school and you want to try different make up products then Elle 18 is a blessing for all you girls. There are just a couple of such brands that offers good products for such a price and Elle 18 tops the list. The price factor does attract girls from all age groups and that includes me. I am already having the amazing shade Pomegranate Pie and wanted to try a new color - Apple Springs.

Accessories Love ♥ - Fendi Sunglass

I like collecting things [ofcourse I use them too] especially hand bags, watches, perfumes and recently lipsticks. Long back sunglasses found a place in the list above and my first sun glass was from CK when I was in my university days then. The 2nd one was Dior and I was using that for a really long long time until my daughter broke it. Then came my Armani and Fendi :D Hubby loves sunglasses too, so he never blames me if I have more than what I need ;)

Announcement - Good or Bad, Hope you are Glad.

As I already said a million times whenever I do a haul post I feel guilty for buying so much make up and spending a lot of money !! Well, don't worry this won't stop me from buying anything in future. I am a true shopaholic and trying to be a bit sensible too :p I don't know what it means, so don't ask me :p Well I have decided not to buy anything until April and wanted to share it with you girls so that I can't or won't cheat myself.

Upcoming Reviews - Forest Essentials Travel Kit

I got the Forest Essentials Travel Kit early this year and always wanted to review them. I took the pics a couple of months back but I kept postponing it. Now as I have almost finished using all of the products I thought I should better review it. Bhumika, sorry for the delay. You had asked me to review it and you can see the reviews one by one pretty soon.

Crazy Clicks - Name Him/Her ;)

I live in a very environment friendly place where in you wake up with the sound of birds chirping early in the morning - this is all you can hear and green calm surroundings - this is all you can see. It is a gated community where we have our own lawn and garden and they aptly named the place 'Green Acres'. [Will try to share pictures some time] So we often spot unusual birds and other creatures. We once saw a turtle around and the kids were all excited to take him back to the lake nearby. One such evening I spotted this bird just out of my window :)

Sephora Smoothing Primer Review

I don't like too much layering of make up and thus never ever wanted to try any primers at all. Some random article triggered me to try one, just for fun types and I decided to get one during my trip to Dubai last year. I wanted MUFE but they didn't have stock, so I got the Sephora one by blindly listening to the SA at Sephora. She handed me this tiny little transparent bottle that was so cute to say a 'No' :p

Evian Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray Review

If you are planning to skip this review trust me you will regret later. I never thought this little spray bottle will do miracles. All I have used so far is THIS and tried MAC Fix+ a couple of times (my sister had it). During my trip to Dubai there were ads all over the mall, airport and every where I went for this facial spray. The ads did work on a shopaholic's brain and I got this one without any idea on what to do with this. I did experiment a lot and will share it with all you girls today.

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick Brick-O-La Review, Swatch and LOTD

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick is my current favorite and this is my second lipstick from MAC. Ya, I just have two :( You can see the review of my first lipstick Cosmo HERE. I love the finish of these lipsticks [Amplified Creme] that I go back to them again and again. I loved and almost got Craving so much but it was not in stock and by luck I tried Brick O La. Pree forced me to try this where in I thought it was a maroon/red shade but no. Thank you soooooooo much Pree I love this a loooooooooooot.

Oriflame Beauty Peel Off Whitener Review

I got to try a couple of good Oriflame products as my close friends are Oriflame consultants and they often suggest me some good products to try. However, other than the products they suggest I'll order a few more that sounds interesting and the peel off whitener is one such product. The concept sounded very tempting and I couldn't skip it.

November 2012 Haul

I have mixed feelings when I do the haul posts every month ! especially when the haul is a bit huge :p As mush as I enjoy buying them through out the month, I feel bad when I gather all of them together in the month end. I am one confused shopaholic ;) I know I have been spending a lot over the past few months and I am thinking of various options to shop and yet feel happy and stay without guilt :D So here is all what I got this month.

NYX Round Lipstick [Heather] Review, Swatch and LOTD

NYX Heather is my first and only lip stick from the brand. I have their lip creams but just one lipstick so far. I have read too many good reviews about this amazing shade but was not very sure whether this will suit me. I got this from a blog sale and my guess was right :P It suits me. Other credits to this lipstick - the first lipstick I broke by twisting it out completely and thus the first lipstick I had to store in my refrigerator.

3 Colorbar Nail Lacquers [Sizzling Pink, Starhit Pink, Desire] Review and NOTD

Ever since I tried one nail polish from Colorbar I wanted to buy more and more. Vidya made the job so easy by putting up a sale here and I grabbed all three Colorbar nail enamels. I bought the shades Sizzling Pink, Starhit Pink and Desire. I have already shown a Colorbar Nail Enamel HERE in the shade Exclusive 29 - a pretty pista green and yellow duochrome.

Maybelline New York The Colossal Kajal Review, Swatch and EOTD

I know you have already seen so many reviews of the same and why am I reviewing this again? Honestly my intention is not to waste your time nor my time as well but to stress the significance of this kajal in my every day routine. Hoping the same way it would help you too :) None of the reviews online made me buy this kajal until I saw this on Vidya's eyes. She had done a fab job with her perfect application and immediately I got this kajal on the same day.

The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Foundation Brush Review

I am learning a lot of new things about make up everyday and this process would never stop. All this while I was using the basic elf brushes for my makeup and always wanted to invest in some good brushes [ a part of the learning process]. Friends come at the right time and thus Preetha came and suggested me to try The Body Shop Kabuki. I just rushed to the store and got this one. I am still confused whether this is what she told me to buy [Nature's Minerals or Extra Virgin Minerals???] but I am in complete love ♥ with this brush.

Tiny Lil Perfect Pout :)

I was confused whether to do this or not but finally decided to do this post. Few days back I saw a pic of a cute little baby with good eye makeup and lip color as well - she looked like a doll!! I shared it in my Facebook page with a caption  - 'I am worried now' , coz I never want to see my kid with so much makeup any day !! Might be in her late teens she can :p

Aigner Too Feminine Spring Eau De Parfum for Women Review

Do note that it is Aigner Too Feminine 'Spring' and not 'just' the 'Too Feminine' that comes in a hot pink bottle and all girls would love it just for the pink in it :D If I had gone to the stores to buy this I am sure I would have blindly picked up the pink version. When I asked my sister to buy this for me I never knew the pink version existed !! I got a sample of this perfume and I loved the fragrance that made me ask my sister to get it for me.

Faces S(m)oothing Eye Gel Mask Review

Long back I read the review of this eye mask by Faces and from then on I have been hunting for it. Unfortunately none of the Faces [read H&G] store around my house had this in stock. I had told everyone to contact me once they get stock and so far no one did :p During my Diwali shopping I spotted this in a clothing store and was so happy that I grabbed it immediately.

Colorbar True Gloss Lip Gloss [Vintage Rose, Pink Stain, Orange Nectar] Review, LOTD

I have been drooling over these Colorbar true glosses ever since they were launched and I never got a chance to try them at the stores. Since I couldn't wait any longer I just randomly chose 3 and ordered them online [I wanted 5]. I am reviewing those 3 shades for you. I 'might' buy 2 more but only after trying them at the stores, you'll know why by the end of this review..

Crabtree and Evelyn Rose Water Soap with Cold Cream Review

How did I forget about Crabtree & Evelyn all these days? I like their products as much as I like Forest Essentials and The Body Shop or even more !! My first love was their Rose Water hand cream and from then on I fell in love their products, however their rose water collections always tops my favorite list. The fragrance is so mild and soothing that I go back to rose water again and again, guess this is the 4th time :D

Having already said [reviewed] a lot about the INGLOT Freedom System Eye shadows today I shall just share three more shades from the same 'pearl' finish range. Every time I go to INGLOT I want to try the other finish as well but end up buying only the pearl ones. There are still a couple of them to buy from the same range as they didn't have stock then :p Waiting for Pree's visit so that we can do a massive shopping again ;)

BiC Twin Lady Sensitive Razors Review

I usually prefer waxing and sometimes when we are totally unprepared we might not be able to run to parlors and that is when I go for razors. The reason behind why I got these Bic razors is not any reviews, suggestions but just how colorful it looks. Also for some reason I don't like to use the same razor more than once and these looked like disposable ones :D so I just picked these up.

As much as I love purse, wallets and hand bags I love coin purse too. I am very picky when it comes to coin purse and thus this is just the 2nd one I have got so far.

The Body Shop Pomegranate Body Butter Review

So here is another TBS Body Butter review for you today :D Don't worry, I am not here to write a lengthy review of the Body Butters again as I have already reviewed them HERE and HERE. Having already used the normal Body Butter and the Duo version as well I really can't pick just one of them but fragrance wise I can give you an idea and that is what I am going to do today with a little more info.

Benefit Bathina Body So Fine Velvet Body Balm Review

I haven't tried many products from Benefit and how I came across this not-so-known body balm is a simple story. It was a gift from my cousin :) Initially I didn't know what purpose it serves. Though I got a rough idea  after opening the packaging, I did google to find out whether my guess is right :p and yes it was.

My Top 6 Online Make Up Shopping Destinations !

As much as we love roaming around in the malls and shopping there we do love shopping online. I still prefer going to the malls but many of my friends completely prefer online shopping that they almost forgot the usual shopping, especially for cosmetics. Some times when I really can't resist and I am stuck at home, I just browse for the products and order them online. We do get some awesome discounts online that tempts us so badly. Here are my top 6 online shopping destinations for makeup and skin care [in random order] in India [of course].

One of my cousin wanted me to do this post and here it goes for her and all of you too :)

Read further to see how it scored.

Sunsilk Keratinology Advanced Reconstruction Program Shampoo, Conditioner and Mask Review

Keratinology - the science of salon beauty is a product of Sunsilk. During my school days when my hair was really healthy all I used was Sunsilk shampoo. The Advanced Reconstruction Program provides intensive repair to prolong the beauty of salon treated hair. When I got the package that has the shampoo, conditioner and mask the first thing I noticed is the amazing smell.. followed by the packaging.

Forgive me for the bad lighting.. It has been raining since morning and this is the best I could do :(

Rimmel Lipsticks - Pink & Purple 'Queen' Sisters

I call these lipsticks the 'Queen Sisters' and you'll know why when you see the pics :D I so loved the glossy glam packaging that I couldn't stop with one. It was hard for me to decide between a pink and a purple !! and also for the reason we don't get Rimmel here I grabbed two of these lipsticks. One is Moisture Renew and the other is Color Show Off Lipstick.

I shopped at MAC and Elle 18 too !! Two extremes - yes :D Few pics for you to see and enjoy.

What happens when you are too lazy !!

It was another lazy weekend for me and I was too bored to cook for myself. I decided to just have some juice and fruits when hubby came forward to make something for me to eat. Actually he cooks well, but I told him I am so bored of the usual stuff we eat and I don't want to order food as well. I was just repeating "I want to have something different and healthy" and see what happened..

The Body Shop Organic Cotton Rounds Review

We all use cotton pads and how often do we think about the quality of the cotton pads that we use on our face. Not quite often !! Until I saw reviews by fellow bloggers I never knew such a product existed. I grabbed these Organic Cotton Pads from The Body Shop during the sale and as we all know these are best bought during the sale :D

Kryolan Eye/Lip Pencil [908] Review, Swatch, EOTD & LOTD
