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 October 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 2nd November2014

Hello everyone!

My FabBag arrived yesterday which is quite late for prepaid customers! I am not happy with the late delivery, it throws the element of surprise right out the window when 100 other people post the pictures of what they received before you received yours.

Anyway, they had 2 varieties of bags this month, a shimmery blue one and a silver one. I got the silver one!

Fab13

This was a Diwali themed bag and I got mine well after Diwali!

Fab11

Lets start with what I received :

1. SeaSoul HD Finish CC Cream with SPF 20 – Light

Fab12

I am happy to try this product. The shade is a little dark for me but maybe I can make it work with a lighter powder on top. I have only swatched it on hand yet and it blends decently. Let’s see how it fairs on the face!

2. Just Herbs 6 Step Organic Skincare Kit 1

Fab15

This is the product I am most excited about. Since I have oily skin, it is hard to find a great moisturizer that won’t make me look greasy. I am usually not excited by skincare but this kit has so much to try and explore! I have already tried the Daily Beauty Gel and Suncreen Gel and I am really happy with them! They have a normal/dry version of this kit as well.

3. The Nature’s Co Rosemary Hibiscus Hair Mask

Fab14

I don’t have a lot to say about this product. I usually use deep conditioning hair masks in the shower and oils for massage. So, maybe something like this would be interesting to try. It comes in a powder form and I’m assuming you have to mix it with water or milk to form a runny paste and apply it on your hair and scalp.

Acuvue 2 – Week Trial Pack

Fab10

If you’re short sighted like this girl over here and you wear contacts, you know the struggle! You always wish your contacts felt more comfortable and soft. I usually wear colored lenses but when I wear clear ones, I wear Bausch and Lomb SoftLens. After 8 hours, my eyes get slightly dry and I want to take them off. I was really excited to try Acuvue Lenses. I wore these yesterday for about 6-7 hours and they felt like nothing in my eyes. They were soft and easy to wear. Next time I am in the market for new lenses, I am definitely getting Acuvue!

Here is what I got overall :

FabBagSeptember

This month’s bag was a bag of new discoveries for me! I would always prefer to receive more makeup like instead of the hair mask they could’ve sent a makeup item. I am excited to try the rest of my Just Herbs kit and the CC Cream on my face. The Acuvue lenses were a win for me!

Side Note – I was going through all my Fab Bags and I realized I have collected 14 over the months! Here is a picture :

How To Make Your Makeup Last All Day!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 17th August 2014

Hello everyone!

India is hot as ever and it has been raining on and off. In this heat and muggy weather, our makeup just doesn’t wanna stay on our face. So, here are a few of my tips and tricks to extend the longevity of your hard working paint and to look fresh through out the day!

1. PRIMER

M1

The hoopla around priming is real. It gives your foundation something to stick to and as a result, your makeup stays on longer. It also fills in your pores and helps make your skin appear smoother. It is advisable to apply your primer and wait for a few minutes for it to settle, then continue with your foundation-concealer-compact.

2. FOUNDATION

If you have oily skin, you will benefit from using a powder foundation. If you have any other skin type and/or prefer liquids and creams, make sure they dry slightly more matte than others and claim to be long lasting. Stay away from words like “dewy”, “glowy”, “hydrating”, “moisturising” etc as foundations which have these qualities usually aren’t very long lasting. ( unless you have extremely dry skin and don’t sweat too much )

3. POWDER/COMPACT

M4

I cannot stress the importance of powder, especially so during this time of the year. Powder helps set your cream products into place like foundation, concealer, cream blush, cream highlight, cream contour etc. It helps you stay matte for longer and is great for touch ups!

4. EYE BROW WAX/GEL

If you’re like me and you like defining your brows then you may need a little extra help to keep them looking nice and bold throughout the day. Use an eyebrow wax before you fill them in with powder. For added longevity, you can use an eyebrow gel to hold them in place for the rest of the day ( or spray some strong hold hairspray onto a spooley/eye brow brush and comb it through your brows )

5. EYE SHADOW BASE

M3

An eye shadow base will go a long way in keep your eye shadows looking vibrant and in place throughout the day. You can use a proper eye shadow base or even cream shadows and set them with powders for extra bang. Eye shadow bases also give something to your powder shadows to stick to and help them appear more pigmented.

6. WATERPROOF MASCARA

M5

This is kind of an obvious one because nobody wants to end up with Panda eyes if they sweat or if it rains! I use waterproof mascaras throughout the year because they hold a curl longer. You also want to make sure that your eye liner is waterproof.

7. CREAM BLUSH

M6

Believe it or not, cream blushes stay on for a much longer amount of time than powders. Use them over foundation and before compact. If you want your blush to last longer, apply some powder blush on top and you’ll be rosy till the end of the night.

8. LIP PRODUCTS

M7

I happen to be biased towards matte lips the whole year round so especially during this time, gloss goes out of the window for me. I also like using lip stains as they stay on the lips and don’t feather out like glosses may ( even if it rains ).

9. MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY

M2

A makeup setting spray will instantly add hours to your makeup. Many companies make such sprays and they’re well worth the mention. This is usually the last step to my makeup before leaving the house.

I hope this was helpful!
