Looking for Milky Coral Nail Polish? Here is Revlon Peachy For You


You can never have more of corals, peaches and oranges but suddenly I realized the only light coral I had was Colorama Coral Chic but that is a sheer coral. I had to get a new nail polish - a  milky coral. Finally my search ended with Revlon Top Speed Peachy.

What Happened in Saket and Colorbar Opens a New Flagship Store

 When I was in Noida I always used to crib that I have to go all the way to Saket for the colorbar store. At times, I use to travel by metro for more than an hour just for the colorbar store. So, last week when I was there, the second point in my to-do-list was to visit Colorbar Saket. The first thing was obviously Forever 21 (was in store for more than 4 hours to make sure I didn't missed anything and the bill was around 5K)


Sight at Colorbar Saket - Filled with lot of new girls who are completely new to makeup and I could not find a single lady whom I recognized. Finally recognized one lady in that crowd and found that they all were new trainees. I was real early in the store (11AM!) and all the trainees were doing their own makeup. It was real fun!

I spotted a new variety of lipsticks along with our very favorite velvet ones

"How much are these?" 
A lady sweetly replies - "New Range - 300 INR"
A chain of thoughts hit me - 50 INR more than Velvet but new range so lets try this baby

At counter - "Add this. How much do I need to pay?" 
"*Some XYZ*" 
"But this is 300 right?" 
"No, 450" 
*in deep shock*  But I could not say NO and so I had to get it.


9 Colorbar True Gloss Lip Gloss Swatches



Do you love gloss? The sheer effect on your lips? Then I have a good news for you. Colorbar has launched a new range of lip glosses - True Gloss. They feel and look much better than what they already have.

The names of the gloss like most glosses are really sexy (Bitten-Red, Opal-orchid, nectar-orange, coral-craving, radiant-pink, orange-sunset, vintage-rose, fresh-pink, pink-stain). Most makeup companies seem to put an extra effort for the lip gloss names - please listen you people who do not bother to even name their products *cough*inglot*cough*

Swatches of 4 Bourjois Pais Colorissimo Lip Palettes


Keeping up with the love for innovation, Bourjois has launched their lip color palettes. We have to a lot of eyeshadow palettes but not a single lip palette other than Lakme Lip Sync but then all the colors in it are dark and I really doubt the number of young girls who are happy with that. These palettes have three colors - Everyday, Flash and Chic.

Gals, please tell me your opinions as I am all confused in there......

I really love their boutiques and how nicely they are kept and the sweet attending SAs. Specially the attention towards details by adding those flowers etc.

Types of Wine and How to Pair Wine with Food? The 101 Guide



This post should have been named “Four Seasons Wine Event” but then I decided the other way round because personally I was touched how wine can go hand in hand with food. This post will take you thought each and every point that I can think of so, at times it might get boring if you know about them already (sorry in advance).

My experience with wine before this event – I have tried Cuban red wine and some whites from Grover. I also had some from Sula as well. I felt red was my thing because maybe I was never able to connect with the whites. Later in this post I will tell you why I never liked white. It was because something that I was doing wrong.

What is this white and red because if you squeeze a grape, the juice is always white? The color of the wine comes from the skin of the grapes. Black grapes are crushed and the skins are allowed to remain in contact with the juice to impart the full color of the red wine. For whites, well you guessed it correctly - there is no contact. Again it all depends on the wine making techniques. The wine maker might think of keeping the white-skin grapes with the white wine to add more flavor to it. Now are you realizing how much the taste might vary for each wine maker? Again there is a Rosé variant as well.

Rosé? Is it made with mixing red and white? Hell NO! The grape skins are allowed to keep with the wine for 12 hours to 3 days depending on the make just to make sure that it just the pink shade they want. Depending on the grapes and wine making techniques, the pink color can range from a pale orange to a vivid near-purple. It is also called rosado (Spain), rosato (Italy) or blush – or simply the pink wine. Talk about being girly, eh?

How to Taste? Before I start on how to pair, let me say something about how to taste it. You might have been bored to death by now by the 4 S – See, Swirl, Smell, Sip. But no matter now boring they might sound they are important to judge about the wine in a perfect way. Our tongue can only taste 4 tastes – sweet, salty, sour and bitter while my nose take help up take around 200 aromas and eyes? Infinite, I guess. So, we take the help of sight by See. We hold the tiled wine against a white surface (you can use the napkin or the table cloth) or better – against light to see the color of the wine. Swril the wine by taking support of the table. Smell the wine to determine the aromas and finally Sip and roll in the mouth so that all the taste buds which are located in different regions can determine the taste and so, we finally get the flavor of the wine with the 4S. 

Quite a Scary Pic. Noticed the Nail Art?


How to pair? To be frank its not as simple as White meat with white wine and Red meat with red wine. Actually it doesn’t even make any sense! It all depends on the preparation as well as the wine. Let me talk about it by comparing the Four Seasons Wine and the dishes we had in Oasis, part Street.
