What’s In My December 2013 Fab (Vellvette) Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 23rd December 2013

Hello everyone!

My Vellvette bag arrived early this month. Oh no wait, its Fab Bag now!

Anyway, I am glad they’re sending out bags early in time for Christmas and New Year.

Image

I always appreciate the bags they give every month. They’re so much better than boxes and these bags are really useful as makeup bags and also come in handy for travel.

The theme was Happy New You!

Image

Here is what I got :

1. Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Image

I am happy with this product. My cuticles get really dry especially during winters. I use Olive Oil on them every night. Let’s see how this works.

2. Kama Ayurveda Lavender Patchouli Hair Conditioner

Image

I have so many Kama Ayurveda samples from hotels, magazines etc though this is a good size sample. Plus this smells really strong. I don’t want such a strong Lavender scent in my hair. They also have brands like Kerastase, Lush, Toni&Guy in their brand portfolio but I haven’t received any product from them. I would prefer to receive a sample from higher end brands so that I can try the products before spending big bucks on them! Isn’t this the whole concept of a beauty bag anyway?

3. LA Splash Nail Splash – Blowfish Red

Image

Who doesn’t have a red nail polish? Maybe I was just unlucky! I have seen some beautiful glitter shades in other bags. I am just disappointed in mine! Let’s hope that at least the formula is amazing!

4. Bonus : Anna Andre Nail Enamel Remover

Image

Eh! What do I say about this? Its just a nail polish remover which is always good to have and it was a bonus product so I am not really complaining!

I am not too happy with this month’s bag. There was no makeup product. I want makeup! Not nail polish remover. I think the only product I am happy about is the cuticle cream. Last month’s bag was really good and I had high hopes for this month since it is the last bag of the year.

Anyway, Here is what I got overall :

Haul Series Part 10 – Huge Drugstore Makeup Haul!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Wednesday, 18th December 2013

Hello everyone!

I visited NewU again! I know I just shouldn’t go there! That store is infectious. Everything is just there and I want to try so many things!

Anyway, I am a crazy shopaholic as you may be able to tell by now after a huge haul series!

This is going to be a collective NewU haul. They’re giving away gift coupons worth Rs. 250/- on a purchase of 2500/- and above till the 31st of December 2013.

I will show you what I got :

1. Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation – Rs. 800/-

Image

I really like the regular Colorstay and I went to restock on that. The SA at NewU said they only had the whipped one in stock so I thought I would give it a try!

Image

2. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains in “Sweetheart”, “Berry Crush” and “Romantic” – Rs. 700/- each

Image

Image

Image

I absolutely love these! I already have “Lovesick”, “Honey” and “Rendezvous”. They stain the lips and are non drying.

3. Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in “Red Coat” – Rs. 400/-

Image

This is warm red. It is the only bright shade in the 9 to 5 range. It is supremely pigmented, easy to wear and lasts for hours! I feel like I have found my perfect red in this and I never want to be without it!

4. Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipcolor in “118 Splendor Plum” – Rs. 285/-

Image

This was a gift with purchase. It is a plumy shade with silver glitter.

5. Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in “Mat 2” – Rs. 375/-

Image

This is a pinky orange in the tube but it looks pink on the lips. It is not as matte as I expected but it is very comfortable to wear.

6. Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in “Mat 3” – Rs. 375/-

Image

This is a straight up neon orange shade.

7. Colorbar Full Cover Concealer in “001 Soft Ivory” – Rs. 495/-

Image

This is a good concealer for covering up minor spots and dark circles.

8. Loreal Infallible Eye Shadows in “Endless Chocolate” and “Burning Black” – Rs. 475/- each

Image Image

These are my favorite eye shadows! I just wish they would make them in all colors and matte ones too! They’re creamy, easy to blend and super pigmented!

Image Image

9. Colorbar Showstopper Eyelash Curler – Rs. 350/-

Image Image

10. Colorbar Lip Contour Definer in “Mad Pink” – Rs. 550/-

Image

Image

11. Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in “Velvet Wine” – Rs. 75/-

Image

This is a gorgeous red shade with red, pink and golden shimmer. The base is not very pigmented but it will look beautiful as a top coat on most reds, pinks and wines. This is the perfect shade for the holidays and parties!

12. Maybelline Hyper Sharp Eye Liner Pen – Rs. 375/-

Image

It is just so much easier to draw on a winged eyeliner with a pen.

13. Maybelline The Falsies Mascara – Rs. 475/-

Image

This is my absolute FAVORITE mascara! It gives unbelievable results and it seriously looks like you’re wearing falsies.

14. QVS Angled Eyeshadow Brush – Rs. 220/-

Image

I am highly impressed with the quality of QVS brushes! I absolutely love their Kabuki brush ( See October Favorites ) and eyelash comb so I though I’d try another one.

15. Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm in “Pomegranate” – 135/-

Image

It smells really nice and has a slight reddish tint on the lips.

16. Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm – Rs. 145/-

Image

I got this on Lisa Eldridge’s recommendation in one of her videos on Youtube!

This is it for my haul. Well, I also bought some toiletries! 😛

Haul Series Part 9 – Kryolan Makeup Haul

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 17th December 2013

Hello everyone!

I had been wanting to go to the Kryolan store since ages but it just wasn’t happening! I finally told myself that I had to go and reached there at 7:10 pm because of immense traffic! The store shuts at 7! I was mega annoyed. But, the next day I gathered my motivation and decided to go again. This time I reached the store at 6:40! 😛

The store was open but it was on the verge of closing. By the time me and my friend were done, we had to leave through the back gate! 😛

The MUA and SA were both very friendly and helpful and they didn’t seem to mind us making them overwork! 🙂

This is what I got :

Image

1. Kajal Pencil – Rs. 150/-

Image

This is available in three colors : Black, Brown and Nude.

2. Brush No. 3612 – Rs. 160/-

Image

This brush can be used to pack eye shadow on the lid. I intend to use this as a push liner brush.

3. Brush No. 9863 – Rs. 500

Image

This is a fluffy crease eye shadow blending brush and it is very soft! 😀

Here is a comparison to the Kryolan Professional Art 3511 Brush :

Image

As you can see, the black one is fluffier and blends eye shadows beautifully. The smaller one is a good brush for beginners and it can also be a great brush for defining the “outer v” of the eyes.

4. Faceliner – Colorcode 50 ( Navy Blue )

Image

The concept of a “Faceliner” was interesting! I am sorry I don’t remember the exact price of these but they must be around 250/- or 300/-

5. Faceliner – Colorcode 22 ( Nude )

Image

This would be a great brightening shade in the waterline.

Keep in mind that they dry a little bit during the winter time but they’re smooth in the summers. You can solve the dryness problem by blowing a hair dryer on them before using.

6. Lipstick – LC165 – Rs. 300/-

Image

This is a brick red shade. If you’re someone who is afraid of intense reds then this will be a great starting shade for you.

7. Lipstick – LC083 – Rs. 300/-

Image

This is a yellow based barbie pink shade.

8. Lipstick – LC150 ( Nude ) – Rs. 300/-

Image

This is a coral-y nude shade.

Here are the swatches of the lipsticks :

Image

Left to Right – LC150, LC165, LC083

9. Liner – 915 ( Turquoise ) and 913 ( Purple ) 

Image

10. Dual Finish Compact ( 3W ) – Rs. 1200/-

Image

Image

This is almost like a powder foundation. You can use it with a wet brush or sponge to achieve higher coverage.

11. Sponges – Rs. 125/-

Image

Just some sponges!

This is it for my Kryolan Haul!

I hope you enjoyed reading!

Outfit Of The Day – Blue Blouse and Leather Skater Skirt!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 16th December 2013

Image

I love loose sheer chiffon blouses. There is something so feminine and delicate about them. I want to wear them year round and not just in summers. Here, I am wearing a black sweater underneath the sheer blouse to keep me warm during the cold winter time!

Image

Recently, I have been obsessed with this beautiful spike necklace that I got from Sarojini Nagar.

Shown in my Haul Series Part 7 – Jewelry And Handbag Haul!

Image

One of my lovely readers asked me to put together an outfit with leather pieces. Leather wear is a huge trend for the autumn/winter.

I paired this blue blouse with a full leather skater skirt. It gives just the right amount of edginess to my outfit without being too out there. It is still a girly girl outfit because the skirt is a skater skirt.

Image

I decided to wear black knee high suede boots with leggings because its really cold and I don’t want to freeze! 😛

The handbag is also black faux leather with gold zipper detailing.

The necklace and bracelet and both gold and black and complement the look perfectly without being too loud.

Blue Blouse and Necklace – Sarojini Nagar.

Leather Skater Skirt, Bag and Bracelet – Forever21. Shown in my Haul Series Part 8 – Forever21 Haul!

Boots – The Heels, Cannaught Place. Shown in my Haul Series Part 6 – Big Shoe Haul!

Necklaces :

Image

Black and Golden Necklace – Rs. 150/-

Image

Pink and Golden Necklace – Rs 150/-

Image

Blue Statement Necklace – Rs. 200

Image

Golden Necklace – Rs. 150/-

Image

Golden Collar Necklace – Rs. 150/-

Image

Mixed Metal Necklace – Rs. 150/-

Image

Pink and Golden Necklace – Rs. 150/-
