Event: Faces Launches the new Ultime Pro Lip Creme with Vidya Tikari

Hi everyone, 
On Tuesday, the 15th of October, I attended the launch of new Ultime Pro Lip Creme by Faces at their standalone store in GK, M block Market. The theme was Cocktails and the Ultime Pro Lip Cremes were displayed in a beautiful array of cocktail glasses. The fun part is that  the Lip Creme names have also been inspired by cocktails. The event was marked by the presence of India's renowned makeup artist, Vidya Tikari, who has been working with Faces ever since it was launched in India. 

Vidya demonstrated two cocktail makeup looks using Faces products about which I will talk later in this post.

Glitter Nails with NewU Nail Enamels : Mirror Metallic in Tutti Fruity and Glitterati in Green Pearl

NewU Nail Enamels (Rs 75/5 ml), available across NewU outlets pan India

Hi Everyone,

If you remember the Nail Polish basket I received from team NewU (in the post HERE), these two nail Colors were specifically picked by my little one to be used together and have somehow become his favorite combination. My 4 yr old loves to suggest me what nail colors I should wear and which glitter top coat will match with it...Maybe it is overexposure to the world of cosmetics...
