Faces Glam On Lipstick #FuchsiaLove : Review/FOTD

FACES Glam On Lipstick, 01 Fuchsia Love, Rs 549/3.5g
Hi Everyone,
FACES recently revamped their old line of Glam On lipsticks for a whole new set of colors and a new packaging. The range was officially introduced to bloggers on the occasion of Mother's Day about which I blogged over HERE.

I was given two shades to try from the range, the first one of which I am reviewing today. This particular shade is called Fuchsia Love.

The new FACES Glam On Lipsticks come packaged in a transparent tube with the color showing through the top of the cap. There is also a shade indicator label at the bottom , so whether you keep the lipstick upside down or vice versa, it is easy to locate amongst a whole lot of other lip colors that you may have. The cap closes with a click and is firm and sturdy so you can totally rule out the idea of ugly handbag lipstick mishaps.

MAC Powder Blush #FleurPower : Review/FOTD

MAC Powder Blush Fleur Power , Rs 1450/  g, available at MAC retail outlets

MAC describes Fleur Power as Soft Bright Pinkish-Coral. Fleur Power is a medium Pink Coral shade with neutral tones and is one of the best sellers by MAC and it is easy to see why!

MAC Blushes come as either refills or in pan and the one I have is in a pan, which is sans any brush or mirror, and that is something I don't mind a bit. Fleur Power is one blush which is universally flattering for all kinds of skin tones and that is because the shade is neither too cool nor too warm and the shade is neither too bright nor too dull. It adds that perfect hint of pink to your cheeks that is needed for a healthy flush of color.  The blush is versatile in the sense that it can pair up well with a lot makeup looks .

Eye Makeup Look: Inspired by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at Cannes,2015

Hi Everyone,

The Cannes Film Festival, 2015 is about to get over and the internet has been swooning with images of Bollywood celebrities walking the Red Carpet in the best of International Designer Wear , both in terms of outfits as well as makeup.

Amongst the others, this year my favorite was Aishwarya Rai and I'm just so glad to see her back in action. All of her looks have been a hit with me, especially her appearance in a sea green Elie Saab Gown. I am not usually the kinds to do celebrity inspired makeup, but Aishwarya Rai Bacchan's makeup with that green gown stole my heart and I was determined to try the eye makeup for once.

Innisfree Green Barley Gommage Peeling

Innisfree Green Barley Gommage Peeling , Rs 1000/100 ml

Exfoliators are a great way to revive your skin within a few minutes at home without having to go to a salon for a long facial session. I particularly, am a great fan of exfoliating products and some time back while I was at Innisfree store in Khan Market and browsing through the interesting categories of products at the Korean Brand's store, I saw this product and after some discussions with the SA about what it is and how it is supposed to be used, I got this home and it formed a part of my HAUL that I blogged about HERE

#Za True White Exfoliating Clay : Review

Za True White Exfoliating Clay , Rs 399 for 100g

One day while strolling about in NewU (oh yes! we bloggers do that in search of something new), I saw this exfoliating Clay by Za in the True White range. My previous exfoliator was finishing up and I decided to give this one a try. I have to mention that the SA wasn't really well informed, or maybe she acted too smart and since I did not have much information about this particular product, I was sold off to her stating that this was a clay mask that needs to be applied on the face and let dry and then rinse off with circulatory motions on the face that will help the exfoliating particles to work on the face. Unbelievable!!!!  either she made it up all or she really didn't know.. 
Anyway, I ended up coming back home with a tube!
