OOTD – Caged & Houndstooth

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Saturday, 27th February 2015

Hello everyone!

The winters have finally come to their close and spring is right around the corner. This is one of the outfits I posted on my social media as a Valentine’s Day look for those of you who like to experiment and go bold. I would totally rock this look for date nights and parties as well. You can stalk me on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with all my updates!

Seen on me here is a gorgeous red jacket from StalkBuyLove that I have tucked into a red and black houndstooth pencil skirt from Sarojini Nagar.

I like to add fun accessories to my look to add a little something extra and make it my own. This lion head belt is one of my favourites from 20Dresses! My studded and spiked winged tote is from a new brand called Mese.

Coming to the show-stopper shoes, these are my dearest gladiator knee-highs that I got a while ago from Koovs and they are surprisingly quite comfortable. I kept the look jewellery free as every everything else speaks for itself.

Here are the pictures :

I recently hauled some Makeup Geek eye shadows and I am so excited to finally get my hands on them! I have been wanting to buy these shadows for the longest time and trust me when I say they are amazing and totally worth your money!

Warm toned neutrals are my comfort zone so of course I wanted to start building my MUG eyeshadow collection with the most wearable shades. I bought a total of seven eye shadows, a small Z-Palette and one pigment, all of which are fantastic!

I will be uploading a video soon showing live swatches and sharing my review and experience while shopping from makeupgeek.com. So, if you have any questions regarding shipping, custom duties etc, please wait till I upload my video as I have covered most of the FAQs.

Now for the actual haul :

1. Z-Palette ( Small )

OOTD – An Indian take!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Wednesday, 20th May 2015

Hello everyone!

Today’s post is going to be slightly different from my usual OOTDs. I attended a very special wedding of a close friend’s sister and wore this suit for the engagement function. I didn’t know if you’d like to see a dressed up Indian look which is why I didn’t post this earlier but then I realised this suit is too pretty to not share!

.

I was on the hunt for the perfect suit until I found this one and instantly knew this is what I wanted to wear. It has beautiful embroidery work on the front with panels going all the way down to the bottom. The suit is sheer waist down and comes semi-stitched. I decided to get pant-style bottoms stitched with a patch of embroidery on the front leg portion. I love how this is a fun, modern take on the contemporary Indian suit and looks absolutely fabulous!

P3

P4

P6

P2

Since the kurta is so busy, the dupatta is totally unnecessary and you can skip it if you want but I feel like no Indian suit is complete until you wear a dupatta. It is also available in mint, pink and blue, all of which are beautiful. I went with purple because it is one of the more unexplored colours in my collection.

P5

P8

I am a total bindi lover! Whenever I wear something Indian, I almost always add a bindi for the complete desi look!

P10

P11

P12

I created a smokey bronze look on my eyes with a dash of purple on the lower waterline. I wanted the lips to be a pop of pink to match my shoes!

Details :

Semi-Stitched Three Piece Suit – Mirraw

All Rings – Forever21

Pink Platform Pumps – Stilettos

On My Lips – Chambor Extreme Matte Lip Pencil in the shade “Exotic Fuschia”

Other Recent Outfits –

OOTD – Prints & Flutes

What’s In My April 2015 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 3rd April 2015

Hello everyone!

Fab Bags have started coming out really early in the month now, which is great! I got mine today and I cannot wait to share the whole review with you! This is what it looks like :

F1

I love this month’s bag. It is zebra printed, spacious and will be perfect to carry around as a makeup bag in your purse.

The theme this month was “Nine to 9”

F2

Here’s what I got :

1. Malavara Shower Gel And Body Lotion Duo – Lime Vetiver

F5

The lotion is great to throw in your handbag for on-the-go moisture touch-ups but I’m a little iffy of the lime scent. The shower gel is also great for travelling and I love the little bottles that can be reused! Over the months, I have received A LOT of lotions and moisturisers from Fab Bag and I just wish they would focus more on makeup rather than lime scented bath stuff! Both of them are deluxe sample sized.

2. City Color Blush Quad – Coral

F3

F4

This blush is my favourite thing from the whole bunch! It comes out a gorgeous pink on the cheeks with very little sheen so it is perfect for the daytime. It makes me look like I just came back from a run in the sun and looks extremely natural. It is a full sized product.

3. Chambor Body Mist – Mystique Magnolia

F7

This smells EXACTLY like Magnolia flowers. Personally, I am not a fan of the night flower scent so it is a bit too reminiscent of that for me. If you like that sort of smell, then this will be a great mist for you. Also, this deluxe sample sized spray is perfect to throw in your tiny clutches for fragrance touch ups!

4. Denman Volumizing Hair Brush

F8

I love that this hair brush is anti-static. I am not sure if it volumizes, if at all. But, it’s a decent size and does the job without tugging or pulling.

Here is what I got overall :

F9

This month’s Fab Bag was well worth the price you pay for one bag. You get two full sized products and three deluxe sample sized products. The lime scented shower gel and lotion are not something too exciting for me. I continue to hope they’ll tilt a little more towards makeup rather than moisturisers and bath stuff. The blush was a pleasant surprise and I’m happy with the hair brush too. The fragrance mist would’ve been perfect had I been a fan of the Magnolia scent but I’m not.

My Go To Smokey Eyes And Bright Lips

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 22nd March 2015

Hello everyone!

I’m the kind of person who enjoys full-on makeup! Thankfully, I have been blessed with clear skin so I have nothing to hide but I absolutely love artfully done and well applied makeup. Think smokey eyes + bright lips all together! It may not be everyone’s cup of tea since people like to go a bit muted on the lip when doing a heavy eye. I say, bring it on!

This is my go-to smokey eye makeup. Its bronze, its gold, its brown, its gorgeous! I can do this look anywhere with anything that I am wearing and be confident that my makeup looks fantastic. When I don’t know what I want to do or when I have to glam up in a hurry, this is the look I always gravitate towards.

Makeup Look – Glittery Plum Eyes + Peachy Nude Lips

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 2nd March 2015

Hello everyone!

I have recently purchased a ton of new makeup (watch out for hauls coming soon!) because I was bored with my current stash and wanted to experiment with new products, So, I was playing around with everything and came up with this gorgeous plum makeup look that is perfect for a party/wedding. It involves a lot of glitter and dewy skin and I absolutely love this makeup look. You can expect to see a lot more looks since I’ve also been trying to get out of my comfort zone of neutrals and try some fun shades like greens, blues, purples and oranges.

New Hair Cut + Announcement!

Hello everyone,

As you may have noticed,

http://www.aishwaryakaushal.wordpress.com is now http://www.glamourignited.com!!!

You may observe a few other changes in this blog over the course of a few weeks. I’m in the process of revamping this site to suit my style of writing. A major change is that now to leave a reply/comment, you have to click the “leave a reply” line at the top of the post.Other than that, I’m happy with how it’s currently looking. I’ve also made a resolve to upload more consistently with fresh content. I have so many posts that are ready to make their way on to the blog like shopping hauls from various places, makeup looks, outfit posts etc. So, keep an eye out for interesting new blog posts that are coming soon. Also, subscribe to this blog via email to receive them right in your inbox!

Anyway, I’m going through a major change in my life right now which prompted me to change my hair. They were long at the front and had started to appear limp with no body. So, I decided to cut some fringes and add some playfulness to my overall appearance.

And yes, I cut my own hair! No offense to any hairdresser out there, whenever I’ve gone to the salon to get a professional hair cut, they’ve always cut off more than I had asked for. It is majorly annoying when that happens as it takes months (read years!) to grow them out. I’m still not sure how I feel about my new hair style though I hope I grow to love them over the weeks.

Here are the pictures :

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup (Foundation) Review

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 17th February 2015

What Estee Lauder claims :

15-hour staying power. Flawless all day. This worry-free, long-wearing makeup stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity, nonstop activity. Won’t change color, smudge or come off on clothes. Feels lightweight and comfortable. Now the flawless look you see in the morning is the look you keep all day.

Estee1

BENEFITS

Long-Wear: 15 Hours. Medium coverage. Our #1 makeup.

COVERAGE

Medium, Buildable

FINISH

Natural, Semi-Matte

FORMULA FACTS
  • Oil-Free
  • Dermatologist-Tested
  • Non-Acnegenic; Won’t clog pores
  • Fragrance-Free

Estee2

Price – Rs. 2750/- at Sephora India

Estee3 Estee4

My Thoughts :

I had wanted this foundation for a long time after reading tons of amazing reviews on it. Since my skin type is oily, this seemed like the perfect choice for a full coverage matte look. I am in the shade “1W2 Sand” which matches me perfectly! There are a whopping 24 shades to choose from so you’re sure to find your match. It comes in a delicate glass bottle packaging without a pump, which is a major let down because getting the product out carefully without making a mess is next to impossible. If you want to use a pump with it, you can buy an independent one from MAC.

Estee6

It has a thick fluid consistency and sets quickly once applied to the face. This cannot be layered after it has set because it has a matte finish and can end up looking cakey. To achieve complete coverage, apply a thin layer and build it up fast as per needed. I suggest working on one part of the face at a time. After putting this on, I only apply a tiny touch of brightening concealer under my eyes and set everything with a light powder. Since I’m blessed with naturally spot-free skin, I do not need to cover much but, I’m highly impressed by how even-toned and flawless it makes the skin look. It does not feel heavy but because it is such a full coverage foundation, it is definitely not going to look natural and skin-like in the harsh sunlight. It is best suited for the night time, parties or indoor events.

Estee7

The lasting power of this foundation is commendable. It looks fresh throughout the day and doesn’t move around or transfer anywhere. Since I have oily skin, I usually need to blot my face with powder once or twice a day. I have had days when I’ve worn this at 9 in the morning, went to work and attended a late night party knowing that my skin is looking its best. This has quickly become my go-to foundation when I know I’m gonna be gone for a long time and need my skin to be perfect.

Estee8

Despite the SPF, it does not give you a white cast and looks wonderful in pictures. One thing to keep in mind is that this foundation is better suited for people with oily/combination skin type. If you have dry skin, make sure you prep with a heavy duty moisturizer beforehand. Using a primer will enhance the already impressive longevity of this product. I have found that the best way to apply this foundation is by using a wet makeup sponge or a wet brush. When I don’t have time to bounce a sponge around on my face, I like spraying a kabuki brush with makeup setting spray or MAC Fix Plus and applying a fine layer on the face. I suggest everyone with oily/combination skin to invest in a great foundation that will last throughout the day and give you the coverage that you want, while controlling sebum production. It is definitely worth the high price and I will repurchase it once I’m about to finish this bottle.

Rating – 4.8/5 This is how it looks on me :

Estee9

The Good :

1. Amazingly full coverage.

2. Makes the skin look perfect.

3. No white cast.

4. Commendable lasting power.

5. Doesn’t oxidize.

6. Easily available.

7. Controls oil and sebum.

8. Doesn’t break me out.

9. Waterproof.

10. Comes in 24 shades with various undertones.

The Could Be Better :

1. Not travel friendly due to the delicate glass packaging which is prone to breakage.

2. No pump.

3. Hefty price tag.

4. Will look cakey in the sunlight.

Side Note – I have a shoe haul, a Sarojini Nagar haul and an online shopping haul coming up! 😀

Sleek Makeup Haul!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Wednesday, 28th January 2015

Hello everyone,

If you’ve been following me for a minute, you know that I’m obsessed with Sleek Makeup. Every single product I’ve tried from Sleek, I’ve fallen in love with (though I’m yet to try their base makeup). You can purchase these products from Sleek’s website or via Luxola.

So, without further delay, let’s get to the products :

1. Eyebrow Kit in “Dark”

Sleek4

Since the day I got this, I haven’t been able to set it down. I’ve been using it constantly as much brow fixer. And notice that little pair of tweezers, super adorable! I use the angled brush provided to carve out the shape of my eyebrows with the eyebrow wax. Then fill in and set the whole brow with the powder using an Inglot brush.

2. True Colour Matte Lipsticks in “Papaya Punch” and “Mystic”. Sheen Lipstick in “Liqueur”. Matte Me Liquid Lipstick in “Rioja Red”.

Sleek5

I am a matte lipstick lover! The liquid lipstick is a budge proof bang on red. I have always wanted to try purple lipstick and thought it would be perfect to try one now and I’m so glad I did because I’m completely hooked. The orange shade perks up my complexion instantly and eliminates any dullness from the face. It will suit most people with a fair skin tone. The nude shade however, unfortunately does not look great on me!

3. I-Divine Eyeshadow Palettes in “Au Naturel” and “The Original”

Sleek2 Sleek8

I own 5-6 of these palettes because they’re high quality and more than worth the price you pay. I got the natural one for everyday use and the original palette because it had some fun blue-green shades.

4. Blush By 3 in “Pink Lemonade”

Sleek7

This one contains a gorgeous cream blush flanked by beautiful shimmery blushes. The pigmentation on these blushes is unreal and they also perform well for hours on the cheeks.

5. Single Blushes in “Rose Gold” and “Pomegranate”

Sleek3

I have 4 blush palettes and wanted to try some singlets from the range. The left one is a breathtaking rose gold (the camera did not do it justice) and the right one is a great versatile plum shade, perfect for fall/winters.

This is it for my Sleek Makeup Haul!

My Go To Makeup Looks!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 7th October 2014

Hello everyone!

I suddenly realized that I’ve never done a post on my everyday makeup!

I want to show you my basic everyday makeup and the look that I gravitate towards the most. This is the makeup that will look great on almost everyone and it is easy to achieve. It makes me look polished and put together and I can finish my makeup in just 20 minutes when I know this is what I’m going to be doing! I have been sticking to this look since about a year now and I haven’t felt the need to change it because it looks amazing and so many people have complimented me on it 🙂

This is also the look that you’ll find me wearing in most of my outfit posts because it looks great with everything. I do change my lipstick and blushes every so often when I want a different shade. Sometimes, I’ll use a colored eyeliner as well but for the most part, this is how I prefer my makeup to look like on an everyday basis :

M1

Winged eyeliner and nude lips is such a great look for everyone. Winging your eyeliner perfectly will take some practice but don’t worry it will come!

Here are all the steps involved to achieve this look and some of my favorite products that I use every time I put makeup on :

1. I like to start by priming my face with either The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer or The Body Shop Skin Primer Matte It. Sometimes I use both of them together, I don’t necessarily have large pores but I have oily skin and I like to prolong the wear of my makeup as much as I can! During the winter time when my skin is not as oily, I like to apply MAC Strobe Cream on my cheeks for added glow. I usually like to wait a minute before I put foundation on to let the primer set.

2. After priming, I buff a thin layer of foundation all over my face with a buffing brush or fingers. I always make sure to apply a really thin layer because I don’t like to look cakey! Some of my favorites are the Lakme Absolute Skin Natural Mousse for really oily days, Benefit Hello Flawless Brightening Makeup, Loreal Infallible 16Hr Foundation, Lakme CC Cream! I like foundations that are meant for normal skin and don’t have a very matte finish because I like to look glowy and healthy.

3. Most of the foundations that I like have sheer to medium coverage and I prefer that because I don’t want heavy coverage all over my face. I use the Clinique Even Better Concealer in the shade Orange Brightener under my eyes. It is an orange concealer that helps to cancel out any purple/blue undertones under the eyes. Over that I’ll use the Benefit Boi-ing Concealer which I also use to spot conceal if I have a breakout. To highlight my cheek bones, upper lip area, under the eyebrows and forehead I apply a thin layer of Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer.

4. If I want my blush to last extra long, I’ll apply a cream blush on my cheeks but on most days I just go ahead and set the whole face with my all time favorite powder, Chambor Silver Shadow Compact or Benefit Hello Flawless Powder. If I want a sheer-er compact I’ll use Rimmel Stay Matte Powder or Maybelline Clear Glow Compact.

5. Then, I fill in my eyebrows with Inglot Matte Shadow in the shade 329 and set them with The Body Shop Eyebrow Gel or clear mascara. If I need to get my eyebrows done and they’re very unruly then I’ll use an eyebrow wax from Inglot before filling with powder.

6. Moving onto eyes, I draw a fine line on my top lashline with a black kohl liner, mainly Maybelline Colossal Kajal or Lakme Eyeconic Kajal. Sometimes I’ll use a brown like Colorbar I-Glide Pencil in the shade Cocoa Bar or Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil in Metal Brown. (Other times I may use a green, purple, grey or blue depending on my mood but on most days its either black or brown.) I like to smudge the line with a pencil brush. Then, I line both my top and bottom waterline with the same shade and smudge it a little on the lower lash line with a pencil brush. Then I start with a liquid/gel eyeliner like Maybelline Eye Liner Pen or the Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in Black and trace along the top lash line creating a wing at the end. I then curl my lashes with the Colorbar Eyelash Curler and use my Holy Grail mascara, Maybelline the Falsies on both my top and bottom lashes. I like to apply a second coat of mascara with Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express and this combination gives me long voluminous lashes every time!

7. I like to define my cheekbones for which I contour my face slightly with Sephora Powder Foundation in the shade Deep and lightly dust some on the sides of my forehead and under my jawline as well. I use a different shade of blush almost everyday but my favorite is Sleek Lace Palette. After blush, I’ll use a highlight from the Sleek Face Form Kit on my cheekbones, under the eyebrows, on my cupid’s bow and in the center on my forehead.

8. Like blush, my lip color changes everyday. But, one combination I keep coming back to is Nyx Lip Liner in Natural and Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in the shade Red Chaos on top! This is the most beautiful peachy nude combination for my complexion and I prefer matte lips over glossy lips!

P.S. I like to use a makeup setting spray just before I head out to help my makeup last extra long!

I don’t use eye shadows on an everyday basis but on some days I like to get fancy! 😛

M2

And sometimes I’ll wear a matte red lip which to me, is the most beautiful look in the world! But who wears red lips everyday?

M6

When I feel like going all out, I’ll combine smokey eyes with red lips!

M4

Sometimes I’ll play with eyeliner and do something like this :

M3

I had a lot of fun compiling this and sharing my favorite looks with you all! I know this can be a lot of makeup for those of you who only wear Kajal on a day to day basis but I absolutely love makeup! Also, this may seem like a lot of steps but it only takes me around 20 minutes to complete my whole face. I hope you found this post helpful and learnt something new!

Product Empties + Mini Reviews!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 31st August 2014

Hello everyone!

Today I’ll be showing you all the products I love and have used up recently.

1. Chambor Silver Shadow Compact in the shade “RR2 Rose Pale”

E1

This is an amazing product and has been in my makeup bag for about 4 years now. I always have a back up of this. It has a little coverage, keeps me matte for a long time, doesn’t look cakey and is great for touch ups. The shade is a perfect match for me and it comes with a refill. What more could I want?

2. Lakme Radiance Compact in the shade “Pearl”

Almost every college girl has used this at some point since this is easily accessible and inexpensive. I remember going through a ton of these during my high school / college days! This has been in my kit for a long time. I do not use this as much now since I’ve moved on to better powders but I finally finished it! I probably will not repurchase this but it is a great little handy product for touch ups for people on a budget.

3. Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express Mascara

E3

I have been a fan of this mascara for almost 2 years now. I am yet to find a mascara that lengthens my lashes better than this does. I use a combination of two mascaras whenever I apply makeup, a lengthening one and a volumizing one. I do have fairly long lashes to begin with but this gives me incredible length with two coats, doesn’t clump and lasts throughout the day! I am currently using a new one and I will continue to repurchase this until I find a magical mascara that gives me unbelievable lashes! 😛

4. Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara

This is the volumizing mascara in my routine. It separates each lash while coating it with blackness and gives the look of extremely voluminous lashes. Maybelline mascaras tend to be a bit more wet than the rest but that works well for me as I like my mascaras to be on the wetter side. The combination of these two mascaras gives me the best possible results yet and I’ve received a lot of compliments on my lashes when I’m wearing these two together. I am using a new one of this too.

5. Maybelline The Hyper Curl Volume Express Mascara

On its own, this mascara is great for those natural days when you don’t want extreme volume or length but just want your face to look more awake and your lashes to appear more black. I hardly have those days when I wake up thinking I want natural lashes today, but this works well when I’m layering it with other ones. I am not sure if I’ll repurchase this.

6. The Body Shop Skin Primer Matte It

E2

I do not have large pores but this makes my skin appear slightly smoother and helps my foundation go on more evenly. It also increases the lasting power of my makeup and instantly mattifies the skin upon application. I am currently using a back up of this.

7. Lotus Herbals Safe Sun UV Screen Matte Gel SPF 50

Lotus Herbals’ sunscreens are great for oily skin. This almost works like a primer and feels fresh and matte. This is my favorite sunscreen and I always have a backup of this. I haven’t found a better sunscreen that works so well for oily skin.

8. The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer

I love this product! I use it to spot treat a blemish or redness. It even works well as a primer and refines pores. I can’t say if it helps minimize the size of pores because I do not have large pores but I do love using it as a skincare product and sometimes under makeup. I am using a back up of this and I will repurchase it once it finishes.

9. Chambor Powder Matte Lipstick in the shade “175 Sugar Pink”

E5

Finishing a lipstick is a big deal for me as I have a ton of them! This is a lovely peachy pink nude shade that is perfect for everyday. I may not repurchase this anytime soon since I have so many similar shades in my collection that I want to go through first. Read my review on CHAMBOR POWDER MATTE LIPSTICKS

10. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in the shade “Ivory”

This is probably the fourth one that I have finished. It works really well to hide under eye darkness. I also use it to highlight certain areas of my face. It is handy for touch ups and you only need a small amount. I love that it has medium coverage which makes it buildable. It is a great inexpensive dupe for YSL Touche Eclat. I already have one that I am presently using and I will definitely repurchase it.

11. Maybelline The Colossal Kajal

E4

This is a makeup staple for many girls out there and happens to be mine too. It is very black, easy to apply and stays on for a fair amount of time. I love that this is great value for money. ( Tip – If you find that your kajal smudges throughout the day, smudge it a little beforehand with an ear bud/pencil brush/smudge brush as soon as you apply it. Then set it with a matte black powder eye shadow. Your kajal should stay in place the entire day! )

12. Faces Eye Pencil in the shade “Metal Brown”

I love using brown eyeliner pencil around the eyes to define the shape and then use black in the inner rims of my eyes and on top very close to the lashline. I find that brown is not harsh at all and this one has little shimmer particles. It happens to be very creamy and doesn’t tug on the eyes. A few seconds after application, it sets and then stays for a long time so if you want to smudge it, you have to work very quickly.. I have gone through atleast 5-6 of these and I will repurchase this soon once I finish other liners.

13. Colorbar iGlide Eye Pencil in the shade “Cocobar”

This is an amazing eye pencil. It glides on smoothly without tugging the slightest bit on the delicate eyelid area. The dark brown color is exactly what I wanted. It stays on for a long time without disappearing and is completely matte. I will definitely repurchase this once I finish some of my other brown liners. In fact, I would like to try more shades of this.
