OOTD – Denim on Denim!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 21st April 2015

Hello everyone!

Today’s post is going to be about one of the biggest trends for this season – Denim!

Denim1

The casual appeal that denim has is unparalleled and it is a fabric that can be moulded to fit an evening look as well.

Denim7

Ripped jeans are one of my all time favourite pieces and a complete wardrobe must-have! This stunning pair can be styled in a multitude of ways but I wanted to create a more street-style appropriate look.

Denim3

Denim4

Denim8

Denim9

I rolled up the hem of my jeans to flaunt these gorgeous sandals!

Denim10

I love how the denim corset adds enough curves and class to instantly uplift a monotonous white shirt-blue jeans outfit.

Denim5

My white shirt has a black collar and a black lace detail so I wanted to match my accessories to create a more cohesive outfit and pull the whole look together. These peep toe sandals look perfect when paired with this ensemble while the bag is roomy enough to fulfil all my on-the-go needs!

Denim2

Since this is a casual outfit, I kept the makeup simple. This is the makeup look I gravitate towards on a daily basis.. You can check out my post on My Everyday Makeup Look to read all about how I do it and the products involved.

I finished the look with some gold jewellery.

Details :

Black And White Ankle Strap Sandals – Zara

Ripped Jeans, Chain Necklace, Chain Bracelet, All Rings – Forever21

Black Lace Detail White Shirt – StalkBuyLove

Denim Corset, White Bag – Sarojini Nagar

On My Lips – MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in “All Fired Up”

Other Recent Outfits –

OOTD – Yellow Bloom – What I wore to the IndiBlogger – Kose Meet!

OOTD – Red & Leopard

OOTD – Monochrome Diaries

OOTD – Animal Instinct

OOTD – Monochrome Magic

Nyx Matte Lipstick Review – MLS17 “Sweet Pink”

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 20th April 2015

Hello everyone!

As promised in my previous review of the Nyx Matte Lipstick in “Indie Flick”, this post is going to be a review of another Nyx lipstick that I picked up.

Nyx3

Pink lips are certainly a girly favourite and I already own more than my fair share! They’re extremely fun and are perfect for the spring/summer time!

L6

What NYX Says :

NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put with a non-drying matte finish.

Ingredients :

Bees Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla)wax, Ceresin, Microcrystalline Wax, Polyethylene, Octyldodeanol, Polyisobutene, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Oleyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Palmitate, Isostearyl Isostearate, Bis-Digylceryl Polyacyladipade-2, Tocopheryl Acetate, B.H.A, and Fragrance. MAY CONTAIN: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxide Red (CI 77491), Iron Oxide Yellow (CI 77492), Iron Oxide Black (CI 77499), D&C Red No.6 (CI 15850), D&C Red No.7 (CI 15850), D&C Red No.27 Aluminum Lake (CI 45410), FD&C Yellow No.5 Aluminum Lake (CI 19140), FD&C Blue No.1 Aluminum Lake (CI 42090), or D&C Red No.36 (CI 12085).

Price : Rs. 570/- from Sephora (India). However, they retail for only $6.00 in the United States.

Packaging :

Nyx7

They come in a black matte packaging which is sturdy and sophisticated. It shuts with a satisfying click and I love how you can see the actual colour of the lipstick without having to open it. It really helps to be able to see the colour of each lipstick when you have more than one in your collection.

Nyx2

My Thoughts :

The pigmentation is ON POINT! If you have any issues with pigmented or darkened lips, these will cover them perfectly. They have incredible colour pay-off in a single swipe and can also be layered to achieve superior coverage and bang-on colour. What you see in the tube is exactly what you get. I always prefer bold lipsticks to be matte because they do not bleed out of the lip line.

The application is super smooth without any tugging and they do not feel like a drying matte lipstick either. However, you will need exfoliated and well-prepared lips in order to rock these as they will highlight and grab onto any dry patch.

Nyx8

They last for a good 5-6 hours leaving a soft stain of colour behind and are completely water-proof but not entirely transfer-proof since they don’t have an extremely dry matte formula. Fret not, they will not smear around on your face though!

“Sweet Pink” is a beautiful, bold and summer appropriate mauve pink shade. It looks bright and catchy in person and looks especially stunning with winged eyes. It will look great on almost every single skin tone and it has a slightly more wearable quality than a neon shade due to the mauve under-tone.

Nyx9

The Good :

1. Extremely Pigmented

2. Silky and Non-Drying Matte Texture

3. Comfortable To Wear

4. Does Not Smear or Smudge

5. Travel Friendly

6. Colour Visible On Packaging

7. Inexpensive

8. Very Slight but Non-Offensive Smell

The Could Be Better :

1. Not As Easily Available in India.

2. Will Highlight Any Dry Patch On The Lips

L5

Overall :

I am very happy with these lipsticks and would recommend everyone to try a few shades from this range. They come in a whopping 33 shades so there is a colour for everyone! I will definitely look into some other colours to add to my stash.

I hope you enjoyed reading!

OOTD – Yellow Bloom!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 13th April 2015

Hello everyone!

As you all may know I recently went to the IndiBlogger-Kose Meet and I wanted to share with you what I wore on that day.

Y11

If you’ve been following me for a bit, you’ll know that I’m obsessed with leotards (bodysuits). They stay tucked in without bunching up on the sides and look polished without any added effort. This nude leotard is one of my favourites as it goes with anything and everything I want to wear on the bottom.

Y5

Y6

Y2

With summer approaching, I love to rock bright hues and ditch the regular blacks and greys sometimes. Yellow is going to be a huge trend this spring/summer and this peplum maxi skirt is beyond gorgeous! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and knew I had to have right away. It is also available in blue, black and red but I love how bold and cheery yellow is.

I decided to add some interest with a lion head waist belt and blue chandelier earrings while the gold pumps finished the look perfectly!

Nyx Matte Lipstick Review – MLS05 “Indie Flick”

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 12th April 2015

Hello everyone!

As you may have read in the title, this post is going to be a review of my all time favourite bright orange lipstick! I picked two of these up from Sephora (India) and wanted some more but unfortunately, Sephora is never fully stocked with NYX products!

Nyx3

I’m definitely big on matte lipsticks and I feel like they’re the most pigmented, fuss-free, transfer-proof and last for hours. I’m obsessed with orange lips for the spring/summer time and this was a very pleasant discovery! Read on to know more –

“Indie Flick” is a stunning, bold and summer appropriate neon orange shade.

It will look great on almost every single skin tone and looks especially gorgeous with slightly tanned skin.

IndiBlogger-KOSÉ Meet : Introduction to SPAWAKE

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 12th April 2015

Hello everyone!

I am going to share with you my amazing experience at the IndiBlogger-Kose meet. It was held on the 10th of April 2015 to introduce bloggers and media to the brand’s foray into the Indian Skincare industry.

Kose is one of the cosmetic giants of the Japan’s beauty scene with remarkable history and partnerships. It has entered into the promising Indian market with its own Skincare line titled “SPAWAKE”.

S9

We were greeted with refreshments and ushered into the spacious hall where the event took place. IndiBlogger meets are always exciting as you get to meet phenomenal fellow bloggers with their own engaging stories.

After some fun networking activities, we were briefed on the brand by the Director and other important heads of the company. I was impressed by the brand’s splendid collaborations with major brands like L’Oreal, Tarte, LORAC, Maybelline etc.

They have created this skincare line to mimic the effects of a spa treatment at the comfort of your own home. The products are claimed to be natural and light while being easy on the pocket and widely accessible.

Aditi Rao Hydari is the brand ambassador of Spawake and will be seen endorsing the line. She also added that she was thrilled to be a part of a Japanese skincare brand as they’re high on quality and deliver on their claims while dishing out some noteworthy secrets to her flawless, glowing complexion.

S10

This was followed by a breathtaking dance performance after which we headed to enjoy an elaborate dinner. We were also given a PR package to test out the products for ourselves.

S2

The packaging is a sturdy white wood reusable box and it contains 4 creams –

– Moisturising Fairness Cream for Day

– Moisturising Fairness Cream for Night

– Moisturising Cold Cream

– Whitening Fairness Gel Cream

S4

Some face washes and a mask –

– Moisturising Face Wash

– Whitening Scrub Face Wash

– Moisturising Deep Purity Mask

Also included a small mirror, a wash cloth and a pen drive.

This is for my experience at the Indiblogger-Kose meet.

OOTD – Red & Leopard!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 5th April 2015

Hello everyone!

Somehow, I feel like OOTDs are the most fun post to do on the blog. It has been a little nippy in Delhi due to the unforeseen rains but I’m not complaining! I’m enjoying the chilly weather and happily continue to live in my trusty blazers.

I have been looking everywhere for the perfect pair of gold metallic pumps and when I spotted them in Zara, you can imagine my level of excitement! I love leopard and red together as it makes a bold statement and I always accessorize this combination with touches of gold. I added this fun cage cuff and a statement necklace to match my pointy gold pumps and threw on a grey blazer to keep me toasty!

Here are the pictures :

This leopard print crop top was actually a full top but I turned it into a cropped one!
