Sally Hansen Violet Voltage and Cherry Red | Buy 1 Get 1 FREE

Sally Hansen Violet Voltage and Cherry Red | Buy 1 Get 1 FREE

"When wandering around in malls, always keep your eyes open."

While going towards the billing counter with my new Revlon matte and lacquer balm, I found these twin box and the SAs promptly said - Buy 1 Get 1 Free! I promise, I froze for a second. The moment I got back from my 'attack', I asked the shades available for choice. For Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear, there were only two pairs - this and another blue and black. I decided to get the pair I will use more. Plus, I never tried any nail polish other than Sally Hansen Tweedy so, this seems like a good option.

Also, the offer was available on another pair of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength - a pastel pink and rose color. The Xtreme Wear pair is for Rs 250 but I forgot the price of the Diamond Strength pair.

Shameless | Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm

Revlon Shameless Colorburst Matte Balm Swatch and Review India

I recently discovered, (when Debi asked me for recommendations on good Gothic shades) that I do not own anything in purple or any daring shades. All my lipstick shades border around pinks, roses, oranges, peaches and reds. Somehow, I got stuck with them - happy and content with familiar colors. 

The same happened when I discovered that Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms are launched in India (along with Lacquer). I was about to get another rose shade (Sultry) when I changed my decision and decided to get shameless and got Revlon Shameless - all this talk is not making sense - I KNOW!

Formula - Now coming to the lip color, Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm are kind of the more pigmented and opaque cousins brothers of Revlon Just Bitten Balm Strain. I am not saying so because I got a darker shades. Even the other shades in the store were opaque.

Nivea Body Lotion Extra Whitening Cell Repair & UV Protect, Nivea Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub, Nivea In Shower Body Moisturizer Skin Conditioner
Nivea Body Lotion Extra Whitening Cell Repair & UV Protect, Nivea Aqua Effect Skin Refining Scrub, Nivea In Shower Body Moisturizer Skin Conditioner

Nivea was my go to brand when I was college. I used the Nivea soaps, soft cream, lotion and the even the talcum powder for four years straight! I also kept the white tubs to store variety of things. Do not ask me how many white tubs I had by the time I left the place! (In my final year I discovered Nivea lip balms which I made sure to buy in various variants for 2 more years. Please try Nivea Pink Guava - its perfect!)

But, later I discovered more brands and somehow Nivea just disappeared from my vanity. Recently Nivea launched the lip butters in tin. And then I discovered that Nivea offers a lot of options now in Indian market. Back then it was just the white and navy blue.

So, recently I got 4 things from Nivea and three thing are just awesome. The 4th thing will be talked about in another post.

Real Techniques RETRACTABLE Kabuki and Lip Brush Review | RT Brush From

Just in case you are not aware, there is a pink retractable kabuki brush by Too Faced which is supposedly make from teddy bear hair. Yes, teddy bear hair. I have even had a dream about it. Sadly, I could not get to ship Too Faced to India in a simple way. Too Faced even revamped the look and made the brush look more posh recently. The 34$ brush will forever be in my dreams..........or so I thought.

Life has a way of throwing new things at you if you are ready to catch. And I caught the new retractable brushes from Real techniques with my grabby hands. (Actually, I always wanted to try Real Technique brushes for a long time but it was getting tough to decide which one to buy). 

Real Techniques recently added 4 amazing brushes - retractable kabuki brush (pink), retractable lip brush (pink), retractable bronzer brush (gold) and silicone liner brush (blue). I got both pink ones from

I got them a month back (more than a month actually - 20th Feb - remember my package from feelunique?) and after using them I can see why people love real techniques brushes. I wish even the silicone liner brush was retractable. I would purchased that in a heartbeat - seriously!

Just Herbs Skincare HAUL from | White Box

Just Herbs Skincare Haul

I am still using Just Herbs Silkplash everyday. After knowing that they are natural, my love for them has grown many times. I had a little issue as I purchased Just Herbs Silk Splash from another shopping website. To avoid that, this time, I decided to shop directly from their website.

I contacted them over Whatsapp. (They are very prompt BTW). I told my skin worries - dull skin and some old pimple marks. I stick to what all they suggested - expect one thing...

3 Shades of Summer | Colored Tip with Twist | Maybelline Color Show

Which colors do you like for nails during summer? 

I tend to be biased toward Glossy Pastels, Pinks and Brights. So, I created a very simple nail art using these colors. 

Actually, I planned on doing a simple 'Pastel Colored French Manicure' but then I was not happy with use of just one color. One thing lead to another and this slanted tiered nail art happened. 

I have not used tapes so, the lines are not perfect.

How I Store Ittar and Perfume Vials/Samples

How to Store Perfume Vials

I like to organised things to make sure they are easily reachable when in need. Recently, the perfume vials and ittars took a back seat because the full size bigger perfume bottle are easy to reach. Also for vials, you need to take them out of paper, use them and then put them back as they were - not possible when you are in hurry - and perfume are sort of applied at the last moment in hurry. So, one day I took out all of paper and store them in small box. I still keep the paper files of the vials as they are beautiful. Well, someone spend lot of time designing them!

What is in my Travel Bag? 'More Skincare and Few Makeup'

Travel Makeup Cosmetic Skincare Bag Essentials

Most of the times, I plan things properly but when it comes to holidays and trips, I keep things more 'last moment'. Specially, with full time job and part time blogging, who has got the time to 'pack things for your trip?' So, recently when we went to Baramati for Four Seasons Wine Harvest session, I dumped whatever I found neaby into a bag. I decided what I will wear when I went there! 

But, I seriously thought that THIS WAY of leaving thing for the last moment and deciding on the spot have to stop at least for beauty products so, before sleeping one last time on that cozy bed, I clicked the makeup and skincare that I actually used during my stay there. 

I repeat - this are not the only items I packed. Both cosmetics pouches came in LOADED.

Crabtree & Evelyn Haul and Kolkata Store Tour | Where to Buy it Cheaper

How many times was the store display soo attractive that you entered with no clue of what to get?
(Happens mostly at cookie shop and patisseries. No? )

On the day we went for the Keihl’s Event, I took a visit at the newly opened Crabtree & Evelyn store at Quest Mall, Kolkata. Being a skincare lover, it was a candy land for me!
I aimed for the Black Mud soap but it was out of stock so, I settled for two gift sets.

Empties in February? | Can you Believe THIS?

'Empties Post' is a list of products that I successfully finish any given month. I started this 'Project' to clean off my bathroom shelves from products which I brought for some reasons and later just let them rot. Now, don't lie to me - I know even you have some products which are just sitting somewhere gaining dust and getting no love from you!

I started them when I got inspired because of THIS last year. Initially the empties posts were HUGE. I mean really HUGE - like THIS or THIS and THIS as well. Because they were mainly products that had just few usage left and I was saving them - why? Smell...
