Clinique Gift Box Whole Lotta Color - Curvy Candy, Chunky Cherry, Richer Raisin, Oversized Orange, Super Strawberry (Review and Swatches)
I already did a preview of the Set. You can check that post for product details, ingredients, price and other information. Link for Whole Lotta Color Preview.
All the colors are sheer but I tried to put here the most intense color possible for all colors. These were possibly the toughest ones to swatch on lips so far. After clicking their pics 3 times and rejecting them every time, I did them again on Sunday and I
am quite happy with the results got better results than the previous ones and I do not have patience to do 5 of them again for the 5th time!
As I have declared earlier, I used them almost every day for around 15 days in a row. I had to reapply it a lot. While it looks awkward to reapply lipstick in front of other, this one looked like I am rubbing a huge crayon on my lips. And who never liked crayon? So, like a crazy kid I rubbed then on my lips. While they are moisturizing and balmy in texture, I wish they were little more pigmented. Anyone who have pigmented lips - which is like the most common issue faced by everyone in India - will face issues. All the colors might look similar.

"There are as many uses for the coconut as there are day in the year" - Indonesian proverb.
Coconut oil was the first product that I was introduced for haircare. My mom and grandma swears by it so, there is always a bottle of Parachute Coconut Oil in my home. For summers, we used to get the bottles and in winters, the dubba ones. But use of coconut oil was restricted only to hair. My thoughts changed when I visited Kerala in summer 2008. We halted at our friend house in Thrissur and her Mom handed us a bottle of coconut oil to massage. That was the first time I used coconut oil for skin and immediately realized its moisturizing. purifying and stress relieving effects (We reached Kerala right after 5 days of exams by a 3 days train journey!!). Now, I know the scientific reason behind it.

I was lemming for the 'New Girl' Glasses when I realized that I got power for my eyes. Luckily I got the some thing like the wack ones of Jess - the animal print geek glasses that I had already shown you here.
While these are not easily available here locally, I found this time during my visit to Sarojini Nagar Market that the most people selling glasses had wacky designs with them. There were several tempting designs variation of the one I have but someone it made no real sense to get something similar.
So, I picked up another wacky design that I always wished to have but was never courageous enough to try - Cat Eye Nerd Glasses.

6 Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick Swatch - Love That Red, Certainly Red, Kiss me Coral, Primrose, Cherries in the Snow, Fleshtone (Swatch and Review)
I discovered them in Dec'11 when I got Kiss me Coral. I wore it almost the entire winter. Then recently I got the Certainly Red and came to know the history attached to it. I was in Love when I finally got overboard and picked 3 together - Fleshtone, Cherries in the Snow and Love that Red. I also got Primrose from Ebay US but I will come to those details later.
In case you are not aware of them then let me tell you that they are the lipstick that provide the intense color with the smoothest application. Anyone with the pigmented lips will love them because they are opaque. Other than Primrose and Fleshtone, all other leave behind a tint. They last around 3-4 hours easily on your lips with the reds lasting much longer than that. They are not transfer resistant so, you have history of lipstick on teeth then, I won't ask you to try them out.
The first time I saw them on one blog, I completely ignored them but today I realized its talked around everywhere. There are leaked pictured, people discussing and guessing. I personally do not have much idea but I think here is what I got after lot of googling.
The collection includes two lines of products-
Betty Cooper - The Girl-Next-Door Blonde
Eyeliner - Black Swan (black with gold pearl) eyeliner
Mascara - Optimum Black opulash mascara.
Eyeshadow Palette - Caramel Sundae eyeshadow palette
includes Cheryl Chic, Dreammaker, Caramel Sundae & Showstopper

Eyeshadow Palette - Spoiled Rich eyeshadow palette.
Blush - Veronica's Blush Pearlmatte face powder.

My main aim was to get Soap and Glory and Burts Bees products. I also wanted to try things from The Face Shop and Sephora but after going though all the ingredients, I decided to stick to Burts Bees for major products.

Its not too cold in here but I was in Delhi last 2 winters and I used to sleep with a hair dryer beside my bed. I never liked to use the blower all the time as it make the air very dry so, a hair dryer comes in handy to warm up under the blanket. (Works perfectly for a cold blooded like me!). Another thing which accompanied me was my favorite Body Shop Shea Body Butter - ahhh the smell but this year, it got replaced with none other than *drum-rolls please*
The Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Butter

People who haved liked my FB page have already seen what I got this time as I already did a preview there. I got them on 27th December. I opened the box to check the things and I could not close it back!! I was amazed by the size and quality of the products. On top of it, all the products are very weather appropriate. Also the box was with a red polka dot ribbon instead of the pink one.
