What’s In My March 2015 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 13th March 2015

Hello everyone!

My Fab Bag arrived on Wednesday and it was a bag full of surprises! Some great and some average. It was a little pink pouch with black text printed on it. Not particularly my favorite bag ever but, better than the Valentine’s one for sure!

This is what it looks like :

F1

The theme this month was “Makeup For Difference”

F2

So, let’s see what I got :

1. Palladio Herbal Lipstick – Rosey Plum

F6

Fab Bag has sent me three frosty lipsticks now and I’m really not a glittery lipstick lover. The shade is very rosey oxblood that would look great on slightly mature women with wheatish skin tone. I prefer my lips to be bright, bold and matte. So, this is definitely going to be gifted to an aunt.

F7

2. Soultree Kajal – Grey Glow

F5

This is a soft natural kohl that would be perfect for creating smokey looks since it can be easily be smudged. I wouldn’t count on the lasting power of it though. Grey kohls tend to make me look weak and tired so I usually skip on them and opt for my trusty blacks and browns but it is always great to have smudge-able soft kajals in various colours.

3. Inveda BB Cream – Fair

F3

This is a sweet little handy BB cream to throw in your overnight bag. It gives sheer coverage with a natural finish and would be great to use on days when you have no time for a full face of makeup and you just want to look fresh and dewy.

4. Sebastian Volupt Spray

F4

I have always wanted to try Sebastian styling products but never got around to it. I have used a shampoo and conditioner from their professional range and really liked those so it was a pleasant surprise to receive something from this brand. Also, I have fine hair so a volumising spray is always welcome!

5. Fashionography Bracelet – With Love

F8

I was looking for a dainty arrow bracelet and Fab Bag read my mind! This is a beautiful, delicate bracelet with a little heart charm that is perfect to wear during the day as well as night.

Here is what I got overall :

F9

I am satisfied with the products in this month’s bag as the combined value well exceeds the amount you pay for a single bag. The lipstick is going to an aunt and the kohl is something I would use only rarely. Other than those, I’m excited to try the Sebastian spray and the BB cream. The bracelet was also a very cute add-on.

What’s In My February 2015 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 8th March 2015

Hello everyone,

I know, I know I’m late with this post! My February Fab Bag came well after Valentine’s Day because I had renewed my subscription mid February. And now, the March one is about to come and I hope I receive that in time to do my next post.

Anyway, the bag was a little black heart this time :

F1

Mine was a little dirty and bent out of shape and I much prefer the pouch style bags they send out normally!

The theme for this month was of course Valentine’s Day :

F2

Here are the products :

1. Sally Hansen Nail Lacquer

F4

I’m excited to wear this polish. It is a soft brown nude shade that is right up my alley as nudes are my favorite shades to wear on my nails.

2. LA Splash Lip Couture – Forbidden

F7

I was so excited about this product but it is really hard to work with! I’m glad they didn’t send me a red one though because I’ve already received three red lipsticks from Fab Bag. It dries completely matte and stays on like paint. But, if you purse your lips together when it is wet, it becomes blochy and is almost impossible to fix! Other than that, the color is to die for!

3. Kama Mridul Soap Free Cleanser & Brightening Ayurvedic Night Cream

F3

I am a little meh about this product. As always, I don’t like receiving skin care in my bag unless it’s a clay mask! But, I’ll try it and see how it fares.

4. Livon Moroccan Silk Serum

F5

I’m usually dicey about Livon serums and I use my trusty Loreal Professional ones but surprisingly, I’m very happy with this one. it detangles wet hair amazingly well and smoothens frizzy hair too. This is a good quantity for a sample size.

Here is what I received overall :

F6

This month’s Fab Bag was average. Nothing too bad, nothing too special. The Livon serum was a nice little add-on and the lipstick is absolutely budge proof. I’m also happy with the simple polish and I’ll have to try the skin care to see how it fares.

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!

Haul Series Part 10 – Huge Drugstore Makeup Haul!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Wednesday, 18th December 2013

Hello everyone!

I visited NewU again! I know I just shouldn’t go there! That store is infectious. Everything is just there and I want to try so many things!

Anyway, I am a crazy shopaholic as you may be able to tell by now after a huge haul series!

This is going to be a collective NewU haul. They’re giving away gift coupons worth Rs. 250/- on a purchase of 2500/- and above till the 31st of December 2013.

I will show you what I got :

1. Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation – Rs. 800/-

Image

I really like the regular Colorstay and I went to restock on that. The SA at NewU said they only had the whipped one in stock so I thought I would give it a try!

Image

2. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains in “Sweetheart”, “Berry Crush” and “Romantic” – Rs. 700/- each

Image

Image

Image

I absolutely love these! I already have “Lovesick”, “Honey” and “Rendezvous”. They stain the lips and are non drying.

3. Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in “Red Coat” – Rs. 400/-

Image

This is warm red. It is the only bright shade in the 9 to 5 range. It is supremely pigmented, easy to wear and lasts for hours! I feel like I have found my perfect red in this and I never want to be without it!

4. Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipcolor in “118 Splendor Plum” – Rs. 285/-

Image

This was a gift with purchase. It is a plumy shade with silver glitter.

5. Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in “Mat 2” – Rs. 375/-

Image

This is a pinky orange in the tube but it looks pink on the lips. It is not as matte as I expected but it is very comfortable to wear.

6. Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in “Mat 3” – Rs. 375/-

Image

This is a straight up neon orange shade.

7. Colorbar Full Cover Concealer in “001 Soft Ivory” – Rs. 495/-

Image

This is a good concealer for covering up minor spots and dark circles.

8. Loreal Infallible Eye Shadows in “Endless Chocolate” and “Burning Black” – Rs. 475/- each

Image Image

These are my favorite eye shadows! I just wish they would make them in all colors and matte ones too! They’re creamy, easy to blend and super pigmented!

Image Image

9. Colorbar Showstopper Eyelash Curler – Rs. 350/-

Image Image

10. Colorbar Lip Contour Definer in “Mad Pink” – Rs. 550/-

Image

Image

11. Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in “Velvet Wine” – Rs. 75/-

Image

This is a gorgeous red shade with red, pink and golden shimmer. The base is not very pigmented but it will look beautiful as a top coat on most reds, pinks and wines. This is the perfect shade for the holidays and parties!

12. Maybelline Hyper Sharp Eye Liner Pen – Rs. 375/-

Image

It is just so much easier to draw on a winged eyeliner with a pen.

13. Maybelline The Falsies Mascara – Rs. 475/-

Image

This is my absolute FAVORITE mascara! It gives unbelievable results and it seriously looks like you’re wearing falsies.

14. QVS Angled Eyeshadow Brush – Rs. 220/-

Image

I am highly impressed with the quality of QVS brushes! I absolutely love their Kabuki brush ( See October Favorites ) and eyelash comb so I though I’d try another one.

15. Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm in “Pomegranate” – 135/-

Image

It smells really nice and has a slight reddish tint on the lips.

16. Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm – Rs. 145/-

Image

I got this on Lisa Eldridge’s recommendation in one of her videos on Youtube!

This is it for my haul. Well, I also bought some toiletries! 😛
