Berry Love - Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick 065 Hooked on Pink Swatch and Review


I am the most anti-berry lipstick person that you can find on earth. Whenever I got any either they are very blue or to mangenta. So, in the end I always give them to my aunts who happy use them as a gift. But you must have every shade of nailpolish and lipsticks right? I can almost say checked for nail polish as I have got more than 50 colours but for lipsticks the stash is still building. So will all my guts I again picked up a berry lipcolour. But will it be my-berry-lip?

 I got both my packages today from Stylecraze.com. I actually received them in weekend but they were in my office so you know the story.


How I ended up with two order? I wanted to try a new moisturizer and thought of trying the L'Oreal Hydra range for a change. While browsing I ended up with 2 more eye pencils also...it is rude if you buy only one thing right? ^_^
The next day I came to know that they are having Sale going on...now its again rude if you don't buy during sale right? .....please nod ^_^

Christmas Special - Glitter Nails

Here comes the final post of Christmas Specials. Tying to capture the red, green, golden and lots of sparkles here. Hope you like it!


Christmas Special - Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Kiss Me Coral

Revlon Kiss me Coral. The name only is so enchanting. For some reason I did not wanted to wear a red but orange on lips. But since its Christmas, it has to be red so I got this orange with red undertones - the perfect coral.

Colorbar I-Glide Jaded Swatch and Review

Hello Divas,

For Christmas, I have decided to 3 post for today. Something you can actually wear and look totally Christmassy (if that is even a word *wink* ). So, I will start it with an eyeliner which I absolutely adore - Colorbar I-Glide Jaded.


Swatch - It is a pearl finish jaded green color. In case you have not jumped into the colored eyeliner wagon, then you can easily start with this one.

Flirty? Lakme Lip Love Conditioner Flirt

Sometimes I love when the cosmetics have name for their shade instead of number. But many times they just go overboard. For Lakme it was the Lip Love Conditioners that they launched around August/September. It was launched in 4 variants - Siren, Charmer, Flirt and Hottie. I got Flirt.

Crackle Vs Crackle

From the first time I saw crackle nail paints, I know I wanted them. As usual my wait started as you know it takes time for stuffs to get in India. When I spotted them in Colorbar Shop (mind it that its not the counters), i was in seventh heaven. Though the price was steep at INR 499, pertaining to my what if I regret later disease, I got it. When I told another nail art addict friend about it, she also wanted it but not for 499! Then started our journery to keep a cheap cost effective crackle polish.

And finally I found one names Lucky Star which have crackle in 12 colours for just 130 INR.


Is it as good as the Colorbar one? Lets check

Tiny New U Haul + Rant



We do not have a Sephora in India. To buy makeup you have to visit those multi-brands outlets like Shoppers Stop or Lifestyle or Pantaloons. No I never like to buy makeup from small shops selling everything who call them ‘beauty shops’! For Skincare? Lucky if you get them in general stores or those same shops which sells beauty stuffs. When I first say New U in CSM, Noida my heart skipped a beat – makeup, skincare, hair care and deos (no perfumes *sigh*….so hard to please nah!).

Sarojini Nagar Shopping on Saturday

"If you stay in Delhi and do no shop from Sarojini...dikkar hae tumpe(shame on you)" - this is what somebody told me when I was about to shift from Bangalore. But somehow or other I never went there. I once there once but I was in a hurry so picked up some shoes and tees. But this time I was prepared to roam like crazy.

Inglot For-Oh-One Lippe - The Matt Coral


Inglot Lipstick 401 Matt is a vibrant coral color. The sort of color with which you can bring all the attention to your lips.

Essential for Nail Art Lovers - Sally Hansen Strengthening Polish Remover

The thing that a nail art loves must have more than nail polish and art DIY is a great nail polish remover. A remover that does its main job perfectly without irritating the nail surface, that does not stings the cuticle and leaves a wonderful shine behind. And guys I have found THE ONE!

For the Love of Scrubs - Lush Sweet Lips


I <3 Scrubs. I make my scrubs, I buy any different type of scrubs and believe me I scrub almost everyday day (Very light circular motion, not rubbing your skin out types. Its basically because I hate the streaky feeling that soap leaves behind but a scrub will always make the skin supple because of the base in it.) So when a scrub lover like me first time spotted the lip scrubs near the billing counter in Lush, could I have said no?

End of 'Taupe' Search - Deborah Milano Shine Tech 57 Nailpolish

Deborah Milano Shine Tech 57 Nailpolish

Like any other nail paint addict, I wanted a Taupe nail paint. Its look great on all nail shapes, and lengths plus gr8 hit this fall. Unfortunately, I could not find any. I thought of getting the one from NYX girls while ordering from Joys Cosmetics. But then I thought buying a nail paint online might look stupid just to realize that they sent a nail paint as gift :O.

Orange and Coral Lipstick for Pigmented Lips


My lips are pigmented in an unusual way and kinda pale during winters. Opaque lip colors are must. Luckily I found 2 everyday lip colours from Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Range - Bronze Orange and Coral. Pink They do not have any sparkle or shimmer so perfect for everyday use. They are always in my office makeup pouch.

Cocoa War - Palmer vs Vaseline vs Khadi

Girls love choclate. Any doubts! What if you wanna indulge and stuck in some stupid diet to reduce that extra pound. Lord has finally heard us and introduced cocoa butter body lotions. At least you can enjoy the lingering smell of chocolate on your skin :)

Joy's Cosmetics - The Best Place NYX Lovers


 I always wanted something from NYX . Finally I got these pretty ladies from Joys Cosmetics in Ebay. Yes these are my first NYX products :-/

Why Joys Store? Simply because they give things in the best price even after including shipping. Cheaper than PorkDaisy, UrbanTouch or any other websites.

For example in UT, you get a cream blush for INR 550 which they say are on 10% off. But in Joy's you get 2 cream blushes with shipping to India for INR 804...now you do the maths for your savings :)

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Review


Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm is the most different lip care product that I have used. It not very balmy and sticky like vaseline or chap-stick. The problem I face with chap-sticks are that they feel heavy on you lips so I tend to wipe them in few minutes but as my lips to dry again, I have to reapply again. This way I am trapped in the vicious cycle. With this tin soldier, I do not have to worry now.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Jar - Savior for Dry Skin



My experience with cocoa butter was not good. Please don't judge me as my first product was some lip balm from lotus herbal with cocoa flavor. It had a very bad artificial smell. It just slept in my wardrobe the whole time and expired there. RIP.

Coming to the review, this time when I visited Kolkata I saw this tub. This time when I smelt it I realized how amazing the cocoa butter can smell. It was like being in the lap of clouds. So Damn relaxing!
