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.

What’s In My January 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 28th January 2014

Hello everyone!

My Fab Bag arrived a little late this month but it was worth the wait!

Image

The bags that they send out each month are so useful for carrying little things around! I have a collection of these now! 😛

The theme this month was The “Cold Comfort”

Here is what I got :

1. NYX Diamond Sparkling Lipstick in “Sparkling Red”

Image

I am so glad I received this color and not a copper or a brown! It looks lovely with a lot of shimmering glitter particles in it!

2. Naked Potion Lotion

Image

I have oily skin so this is too much for me. My mother on the other hand has drier skin so she was happy to try this product! She says it feels very moisturizing and makes the skin soft! It is a deluxe sample size.

3. Nyassa Almond Body Butter

Image

This smells like the soft almond candy we used to get! It is also a lovely handbag size tub.

4. I Love Mango Face Mask – 2

Image

These look so handy and easy to travel with. I am excited to try them! I am sure they smell yummy!

I am happy with this month’s Fab Bag. For the amount of money we pay for one bag, all these products are well worth the investment and you instantly recuperate the value of the bag!

One thing that I wish could be different was that they include a little more makeup and less skincare. Other than that, I am golden with this month’s bag! 🙂

Here is what I got overall :

Haul Series Part 2 – Drugstore Makeup!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 10th November 2013

Hello Everyone!

So this is the part two of my Haul Series! I went to the mall with a few friends and somehow we ended up in a NewU store! That store is dangerous. Once you go inside, it is next to impossible to come out without purchasing something!

So guess what happened? Yes, a HAUL happened! 😛

Here is what I bought :

1. Lakme CC Cream – Rs. 250/-

Image

This was featured in my October Favorites! My skin has been making its own decisions lately. It has been acting oilier on some days and dry on the others! So on those almost dry days, I turn to this!

2. L’oreal Infallible Foundation – Rs. 1250/-

Image

I wanted a foundation with decent coverage that looked natural and would stand the test of time! This seemed perfect so I picked it up!

3. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer – Rs. 475/-

Image

I was very confused between the Colorbar Full Coverage concealer or this one! I do not need to cover blemishes and acne spots since I make my skin behave so, I decided upon a highlighting concealer for my under eye area!

4. Faces Long Wear Eye Liner Pencil ( Metal Brown ) – Rs. 349/-

Image

I swear by this eye liner! Brown is less harsh than black. This must be my 4th or 5th repurchase. Enough said!

5. Nail Polishes :

Lakme 9 to 5 Long Wear Nail Color in Beige Suit – Rs. 200/- 

Image

This polish goes fully pigmented in one swipe. It is perfect for all the working ladies who do not have enough time to pamper themselves but still want to look put together. It is a beautiful peachy nude shade.

Maybelline Color Show Nail Color in 218 Crazy Berry – Rs. 75/-

Image

This is a beautiful berry shade that is perfect for the fall/winter time and will complement berry lips beautifully!

Maybelline Color Show Nail Color in 401 Constant Candy – Rs. 75/-

Image

During the fall/winter time, I usually gravitate towards dark nails or nude nails. This is one of those pale pink nude shades that look great with any outfit!

L’oreal Nail Polish in 409 – Rs. 225/-

Image

This is a deep wine, bordering on black. I love the pigmentation on these L’oreal nail polishes and the flat brush applicator is very user friendly!

6. Colorbar Emphaseyes Eye Blending Brush

Image Image

Because I wanted to try some of the Colorbar brushes…..

It is tapered on one side and flat on the other, unlike conventional blending brushes that are round and fluffy. It feels soft and easy to use. I am most likely going to use it for under eye concealing.

7. Freebie! Maybelline Manicure Kit.

Image

Image

Isnt it just so exciting when the store manager decides that you’ve burnt enough of your money to deserve a free gift? 😛

It looks like a sturdy, good quality manicure set that would be just perfect to travel with! 😀

This is it for my haul but lots more coming soon! So stay tuned.
