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 :

What’s In My September 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 22nd September 2014

Hello everyone!

FabBag celebrated it’s second anniversary in September and my bag arrived yesterday. This was one of the best bags they’ve sent out and I’m very excited! 😀 So, lets begin.

This is what the bag looks like this month :

Fab5

I love animal print! The bag is so pretty!

Fab2

Here is what I received in my bag :

1. Bellapierre Mineral Foundation – Ivory

Fab4

I am mega glad that they sent me the right shade! I am usually the lightest shade in most Indian base products and to receive a product that is too dark is very frustrating. It is such a gamble to send someone you’ve never seen in person a base product. This is a 4 gm sample which is quite generous for a sample size and costs Rs. 2500/- The full size costs Rs. 4,900/- The product contains an SPF of 15 so it is probably not the best for flash photography. I am very excited to try it.

2. SkinYoga Green Tea Face Mask

Fab3

This is a 5.6 gm sample that will last about three uses. It is supposed to be mixed with water to form a paste and then used as a face mask. This is meant to control acne and guard skin against the Sun. Thankfully, I don’t suffer from acne but I would still like to try this product for clearer pores and smoother skin. The full size is 50 gms and retails for Rs.1,750/- Also, the bottle is very cute 😛

3. Sally Hansen Nail Growth Miracle With Gift

Fab1

I have high hopes from this product! If you don’t take your vitamins regularly, you might suffer from brittle nails and this should take care of that. The gift is a small travel sized manicure kit that is so handy to take anywhere. This is the full sized version and costs Rs. 875/-

BONUS – Trendy Printed Scarf + FAB POST Magazine

Fab6 Fab8

They sent out scarves with various prints on them. I got a Marilyn Monroe print scarf. I would’ve preferred to receive some other print but eh, I am not much of a scarf wearer anyway! The magazine contains details of each product that we received and many others.

Here is what I received overall :

Fab7

I am so happy with this month’s bag. They sent out great products that we will be excited to use. Well done to FabBag and a very happy second anniversary! 🙂

My Experience With Acrylic/Fake Nails And Gel Manicure!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 23rd September 2013

Hello everyone! 🙂

So recently I went to a nail salon to get my nails done. I was unsure if I wanted to get acrylics. I had thought about getting a gel manicure only but my nails are very brittle and the thought of getting long nails in a matter of minutes was very alluring! 😛

I decided on a French Manicure, a true classic.

The place is called “CLAWS” and it is located in the GK 2 Market, New Delhi.

We started by pushing my cuticles back and filing my nails. Then we moved onto acrylic french manicure nails. They are white in color to get that beautiful french tip.

Image

The acrylic nails were glued on mine just a few millimeters before where my real nails start growing out.

Image

I know it looks really scary now but it gets better! 😛

My nails were now trimmed to a more appropriate length.

Image

I still felt they needed to be a bit shorter so they were trimmed again, just a few millimeters. Then they were filed properly to avoid any sharp edges.

Image

They were then filled with a mixture of some liquid and powder. I forgot to ask what it was! But, that is what makes the fake nails look like your real nails and binds them together.

Image

They were filed again and buffed to perfection from top to bottom.

Then we moved onto a gel top coat that gives a beautiful shine that stays for a long time.

I wanted to get some nail art done but I didn’t want to spoil the sophisticated look of the french manicure so we decided to do an accent nail.

Image

I was told to put my hands under an LED light to fix the gel nail polish.

The process took about 2 hours and I was exhausted after that so I had donuts! 😛

Image

All in all, it was a good experience. However, they are really hard to maintain. You’ll need to get regular fillers so it still looks real. The maintenance depends on how fast your nails grow. I, for myself will not get acrylics again. Sometimes the white part of the nails turns yellow after eating food and I need to wash them with a brush to make them white again. I would much rather get a gel manicure from the next time onwards. It stays longer and makes the nails stronger.

About 2-3 coats of gel nail polish are applied. After every coat, you need to put your nails under the light to fix the polish. The last coat is a top coat that gives shine.

The nails look really thick and healthy after a gel manicure and it does not chip at all for about 2-3 weeks.

You’ll need to go back to the salon to remove your gel manicure.

I hope this was helpful to all of you who are considering getting acrylics or a gel manicure.
