Fiama Di Wills Shower Gel Exotic Dream + A Weird Tip from Boy


Aloha! I am finally moved to Kolkata and joined office today *happy and relaxed*. I only moved my fav clothes, shoes and makeup and ended up with 56 kilos so had to pay for extra luggage…sad but I could not move them by transport services – NO WAY!

Total I will talk about the shower gel from Fiama Di Wills – Exotic Dreams. As the name suggests it has a very relating type of smell. I will prefer it for evening shower but never for morning one. I love citric smells to wake me up.

Marry Me! - The Super Awesome Perfume by Lanvin + Derp Pics


The first day I saw the ad of this perfume on the back cover of a shiny magazine – I was in love with this. I never tried it but when I saw it recently in a store, I had to buy it. I wore it the very next day and everyone complimented – awww moment!

Colorbar Take Me As I Am Vs Inglot AMC + Dare Bare Pink Swatch And Review

 

Call them the Indian version of Clinique Chubby Sticks or Inglot AMC Lip Pencils, Colorbar launched them! (Thanks again for launching Crackle) I am never a person who like lip color in stick because of the color that gets wasted while sharpening but when I saw them, I thought – what the harm in trying them once?

How I felt about them?

Everyone knows the pros and cons of a stick lipcolor. So I am not gonna talk about that. I am more concerned about it being compared with the Inglot ones. So, I will do that for sure.

Clinique chubby sticks are something that I am not getting whatever be it as they are very sheer. I am not blessed with nice lips that can look good with sheer colors. I need strong pigmented colors. The one left here is Inglot AMC. Well after my experience with their matte formula with Inglot 401 lipstick (reviewed HERE) I was skeptical with the AMC formulas. On top the Inglot ones are super matte.

Shopping with Pooja


Yesterday was a beautiful day. Pooja from IBC decided to meet me. As I am moving to Kolkata and there are stuffs that I cannot get in Kolkata, she was so sweet that she came with me for shopping. We were thinking of going to the MAC and Inglot together from a long time and yesterday was THE day.

We went to that Karol Bagh store and I wanted only perfumes (Read Marc Jacobs as my supplier of imported stuffs in Kolkata said a direct NO to Marc Jacobs) but Pooja suggested that we should first try them at a mall before spending grands on them and so we headed to Subash Nagar.



Had a bite at Mamagato.The restaurant has some perky design. Loved the creativity of the person who designed this half Pig half Fish riding a good old Scooter.

Now cutting all crap and coming back to the topic.....

Sleek iDivine Oh So Special Swatches and Review


“The cutest, the sweetest and you are Oh so special” Feels so nice hearing that, nah? Ohh this palette hears this all the time from me as it actually is Oh So Special – a natural palette with perfect selection of mattes and shimmers.



What the website says -

'It’s the ultimate i-Divine that every woman should have in her possession, with 12 flattering on-trend shades to suit all skin tones no matter what the occasion, the Oh So Special palette will always deliver the perfect results.
Take your look from day time chic with matte browns and creamy beiges, through to sultry evening glamour with shimmering grays and smokey plums. A make-up bag staple and a must-have i-Divine you can rely on, so no matter where you are or what you’re doing you’ll look Oh So Special!
We've recently given our i-Divines a makeover! The outer packaging has been updated and the way the eye shadows are pressed are different. They are now pressed flat instead of the original waffle print.'



 

I am more into getting natural eye shadow colors and so this comes is my second favorite eyeshadow palette right after Physicians Formula N*de (well the PF one so small that I can carry it everywhere!!).

The packing is sleek with a mirror inside and a not so useful dual tip sponge applicator like all its brothers and sisters.


Other than Bow and The Mail, I had no issues swatching the colors. Pamper is way ahead of every matte color I have seen in pigmentation.



Bow: matte pale beige. Of no use for me.

Organza: Shimmer Light Pink. Love Love Love.

Ribbon: Matte Pink. Its a very buidable color so can wear it even for a short trip to grocerry *wink*

Gift Basket: Shimmer browny bronze. Another of my loved color.

Glitz: shimmer mettalic blue. Never used so far.

Celebrate: shimmer Deep purple. It defines super-gourgeusness.

Pamper: matte pastel pink. Cutest of all color. Totally buidable like its elder sister Ribbon.

Gateau: Holographic purple gold shimmer. Very playful. Looks purple but then the gold shines though. I cannot exactly mark it frosty so saying it Holographic.

The Mail: Matte Tan. Blah.

Boxed: Matte Brown. The color is nice but I need such colors to be more pigmented so this one fails for my standards.

Wrapped Up: Matte Browny Purple. Another failure.

Noir: Matte Black but not very intense. I use Black Box from Sleek Me Myself and Eye which is much more intense than this.


Overall its a beautiful palette which is not a LE and so you can get it for sure.

The fallout is not much even for the highly shimmery ones. They no more come with the waffle texture so the colors are pressed better and hence they are easy to apply and have longer stay on your lids.

Other than the shipping part everything about this is awesome.

My favs are Organza and Gift Basket. Which one did you liked?

Latest Buys, Sale Update & One Important News

At times I shop like crazy but there still remains a hole inside me. It happens most of the time actually. Yesterday I went to Karol Bagh and Pacific Subhash Nagar (both suggested by Pooja of IBC…thanks dear…XOXO) and I got just 2 items and I never had a more satisfied sleep than last night.

The two items are

1. Lanvin Marry Me – I wanted it from the day I saw the print ad. The boy, the girl, her hair, her dress, her shoes, the sunlight, even the bicycle..everything is just simple and sweet. I have a sensitive nose and I got this even without sniffing it! I am wearing it today and totally loving it.

Sleek Lipstick Swatches - The HEARTBREAKER was BARELY THERE at the CORAL REEF


And I made a completely non-sensesical sentence with the Sleek Lipsticks I got from my Sleek Haul. As I was dying to haul their website I grabbed some lippes as well. I wanted Papaya Punch but it was OOS and so ended up with Coral Reef....ohh it just occurred to me if I had got that Papaya Punch I think I could have made a better heading (pun intended)

I only wanted Heartbreaker. Then I loved Papaya Punch and ended up with Coral Reef and then Barely there because there are already too many Orange and Pinks in my lipstick box and hardly any n*des.


About them in Sleekmakeup.com 

A superb highly-pigmented lipstick enriched with Vitamin E which leaves amazingly rich shades on the lips with only a single coat.

Can be applied using a lip brush for a professional finish. 3.5g

NOTD - Stripes, Glitter, Neon, Crackle, Dots!


Before my posting speed reduces from 1 per day to 1 per week, I had to do something. I just cannot do some post just because I hate to post. There are post in my drafts which require free time which I do not seem to have much these days in home or office and the cherry on top - net issues! I cannot tell how bad it is currently. I am infact posting from someone else's lappy......please have pity on me.

I was not doing any NOTD posts (whereas my life depends on it at time) from many days and you will come to know why soon.

On my nails - Stripes are drawn my the nail polish brush itself as I was really lazy to get up and use something better. The color is Flormar 424. On top its Colorbar Crackle. The price of colorbar crackle is high but then I am yet to find one that can match its quality. I found a cheaper one and compared it HERE.

Something inside me does not allows me to paint all my nails exactly alike. I feel really irritated for some reason and end up doing something or other. This time it was Taxi Nail Art on the whole middle finger nail.


And the reason why I was not posting any of my nail arts recently.

Black Scrub? H2O+ Spa Sea Moss Black Sand Body Scrub Review


Remember MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator? By the time I made my mind to get that it was out of stock. That regret of not buying it was eating me every day. I jumped to buy Vedic Line Mask with Volcanic Clay and Green Tea when I was collecting stuffs with Green Tea smell though it was only Clay and not Ash. Later, I found it was just like Multani Mitti (Fuller's Earth) so, I desperately wanted something with those black granules in it.

Lately, I was hearing a lot about H2O+ stuffs which has a reputation of using sea derived ingredients for their skin care products and I wanted to try their shower range. As there were so many I thought of just trying them once at their store. Then a SA came to me. Mind it that I had no intentions of buying ANYTHING and then she showed me this – a scrub with Black granules. I checked the ingredients – SLS was marked at no. 2 but then even my favorite Lotus Oats Scrub have SLS and did never did anything wrong to me! Then down the line I saw Volcanic Black Sand….no Ash but Black Sand. I opened the flip and it was black scrub. I had to get it to get out of that Regret!

About the product from the product itself *wink*

Tag Post - 7 Deadly Sins Of Beauty

I have been tagged by Jyotsna of Beauty and Make up Studio more than a month back and before she comes back to scold me let me do the tag *wink*

The 7 Questions of 7 Deadly Sins Of Beauty

Greed

Q. What is your most inexpensive beauty product you love and why?

A. Rose water. It took me a long time to get started on this but now this is always the mixing medium for all my face packs and scrubs.
I do not like rose water in food.....u know the muglai foods that have this. I simply cannot have those with too much of rose water! But I like it for face packs. I generally get those Dabur Gulabari ones. It acts as a facial mist when i mix it with some glycerin and put in a spray bottle.

First OOTD – Improvise! + When I Meet Another Blogger


There are just few nice malls in the city and most of the bloggers visit them. I knew a day when I will bump into some blogger and definitely not remember her name because I am pathetic with names. So this happened on Tuesday when I skipped office and decided to go to Vasant Kunj with my friend. My main target was Forever 21. I saw the new collection when I went there for the Keihl’s Giveaway thing but I didn’t have anything for myself because I am a very compulsive buyer. If I want it, I buy it because if I do not I might regret it always. I hate to regret so end up buying stuffs which I might not even wear once. So I needed someone to guide me. I got 2 tops and a satchel (will do “Whats in my Bag” post once the lighting issue is solved in PG).

Then my friend got bored and we decided to go to Sarojini…yes I finally got cloths for myself….I know I am talking like some beggar who have to run around almost naked because she does not have cloths…God save me!

Sleek PPQ iDivine Me Myself Eye Shadow Swatch


From the day I first say the sleek eye shadow palettes, I wanted them badly. They are small enough to be carried around (but sadly does not fit in my tiny office makeup pouch). The price is not much and there are so many variety! The hinder – Shipping charges! So when Pooja from Indian Beauty Central mentioned that they are having 50% shipping charges, I just couldn't wait and got all I wanted and was in stock. Check out the rest of the stuff` I got HERE.

I know I have been really posting less these days because of bad internet connection and also in my PG some lighting issues and so talking pics is a big issues. These were clicked in my previous home. 

Anyways, today is the turn is the most vivid eye shadow palette that I got from Sleek – Me, Myself and Eye.

35% Off on Coastal Scents Palette + Feeling About Buyincoins.com

Remember few months back when all of a sudden there were loads of online retailers in India and everyone was having SALE to attract people! They had those coupon codes and free gifts on purchase. Well now all of them are gone. Even if there are offs on products but that is reduced from 25% to 15%. The size of free gift reduced to some samples of unheard brands. Coupon codes are still there for some but then in short – nothing interesting!

I was looking into Coastal Scents websites and realized that they always have some or other sales going on. Each sale last for around 3-5 days. Luckily this time they have their all famous palettes!

I am seriously thinking about getting one. You get similar ones in buyincoins.com but there is huge issue with their package – late/missing/broken.
