Estee2

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!

Read My Review Of Sleek Pout Paints

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.

Read My Review Of Sleek Lace Palette

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!

What’s In My December 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 15th December 2014

Hello everyone,

As promised, I’m back with the December post! This month’s bag was beyond exciting for me! This is why :FabMag

I won in the “Best Party Look” category! Thank you to FabBag for featuring me in their Fab Post magazine! <Does Happy Dance>

Here is what the December bag looks like :Fab7

This was a Christmas themed bag!

Fab1

Let’s get to the products inside :

1. Deborah Milano Rossetto Atomic Red Lipstick – 05

Fab4

This lipstick is moderately pigmented and has a sheen finish.I am more of a matte lipstick girl though. I have received three red lipsticks from Fab Bag including this one and two of them are glossy. But anyway, who can have enough red lipsticks?

2. Tattva Body Butter – Peach Grapes & Cherry Blossom & Lip Scrub – Vanilla Cinnamon

Fab3

The body butter has a very mixed scent of various fruits. I have lost count of the number of body butters that I have received over time from Fab Bag. It came with a sugar lip scrub which I am really excited about. They say we can just lick it off after it melts. It contains cinnamon so I’m hoping to see some extra smooth plump lips!

3. Kronokare Itsy Bitsy Massage Addict Kit – Cooling & Detoxifying

Fab2

This was one of the not so exciting products for me. They have previously sent me a ginger scented shower gel and body lotion combo which I dint like because of the smell. The cooling massage oil is probably not going to be of much use right now because we’re in the middle of winter but I can use the detoxifying one.

4. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation – 52 Vanilla

Fab6

I have heard so many good things about this foundation and have been wanting to try it for a long time but never got around to it. Its like they heard me! And they matched me perfectly! This has to be my favorite product of the bunch. I will definitely get the full size of it if I like it.

5. IndieEco Luxury Handcrafted Candle – Lemongrass

Fab5

I love scented candles! They’re romantic and they enhance the atmosphere. This one smells like fresh lemongrass which is a tad too citrusy for the bedroom but it will be a great refreshing bathroom scent.

Here is what I got overall :

Fab9

This month’s Fab Bag held a very pleasant surprise for me since I was featured in the magazine. As for the actual products, the most exciting ones are the foundation and the lip scrub. I am happy with the lipstick and the candle too. The travel size body butter will come in handy for on-the-go moisturization. The massage oils were not so exciting. I’m glad they included at least two makeup products and it was not loaded with only skin and hair care.

What’s In My November 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 14th December 2014

Hello everyone,

I know I’ve been a little MIA lately but I’m back now! My November Fab Bag came around the end of November or the beginning of December which was really late. I wasn’t happy with the late service but I just received my December bag today and I got a pleasant surprise! The post on that will be up really soon!

The November bag was glitsy and golden :

Fab1

The theme this month was “Power-Up”

Fab2

Let’s get to the products :

1. City Color Cheek Stain – Coral

Fab8

This is a great product for the winter time when your skin is dry. I have used this cheek stain and the color is beautiful. I like to top it off with a powder blush just to make it last extra long.

2. Wella Enrich Treatment Mask

Fab4

I like to try different hair treatment masks every now and then and I was looking for a new one to try after religiously using loving the Loreal Liss Ultime. So, this came at a good time. I am looking forward to using it and seeing how it fairs.

3. Kama Ayurveda Bringadi Intensive Hair Treatment

Fab6

My hair is chemically treated and any help from products to revive the texture is welcome. I haven’t been able to use it yet but I am excited to try something that will renew my hair.

4. Votre Invigorating Orange Hand & Foot Gel Creme

Fab3

The product name on the card says “scrub” but I received a creme. This product will come in handy for at home pedicures and manicures as well as moisturizing at night. I expect it to make my hands and feet feel soft and nourished,

5. Gulnar Handmade Soap

Fab5

I’m not a really a fan of coffee vanilla scents but I will use it just to use it. I would’ve liked to receive a different scent.

6. All Good Scents Perfume Essentials – Chic

Fab7

I loved this perfume. It smells feminine. fresh and woody. I have already ordered a full size!

Here is what I got overall :

Fab9

There were quite a few products in this month’s bag. My constant complaint with the fab bag remains that we don’t receive as much makeup as we would like. There is always a lot of focus on skin care and hair care but all that aside, the cheek stain and the perfume were star products for me. I’m looking forward to seeing some results from the hair treatment products as well. The soap was meh for me and the creme was just a fair add on.

The Body Shop Haul!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Wednesday, 19th November 2014

Hello everyone!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I absolutely love The Body Shop! I regularly use their bath and body products as well as their makeup. I stocked up on some favorites and also got a few other things that I wanted to try. There is a lot of stuff so without further rambling I’ll show you what I got!

1. Tea Tree Oil, Tea Tree Pore Minimiser, Skin Primer Matte It

B2

I wanted the Tea Tree Oil to spot treat any pesky zits. Tea Tree Pore Minimiser and Skin Primer Matte It are my holy grail primers. I use them together or independently and they work really well. These are probably my fourth or fifth tubes of both of them.

2. Body Butters – Coconut, Strawberry, Japanese Cherry Blossom and Mango

B1

Body butters are probably my favorite product from The Body Shop. They are intensely moisturizing and smell heavenly. I couldn’t decide which ones to get so I got all the scents I liked because winters are here and you can never have too much moisturizer! 😛

3. Born Lippy Stick Lip Balms – Strawberry, Plum and Toffee

B6

Same goes for lip balm. In the winter time, lips get really dry and any added moisture is welcome. I love these ones because they have a matte texture which wears really well under matte lipsticks and does not make the lipstick look shiny like other lip balms.

4. Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil

B4

This stuff is absolutely amazing! I was using a slightly darker shade before but I still finished it. It makes the skin glow and look healthy. It also blurs imperfections making the skin appear smooth and shiny!

5. White Musk Smoky Rose Eau De Toilette, Strawberry Body Mist, White Musk Sport Eau De Toilette

B3

This is my third bottle of the Smoky Rose scent. I cannot get enough of it! It is a very sexy and intoxicating fragrance which I love. The Strawberry Body Mist is also my fifth or sixth bottle. This is a very delicious strawberry scent that is easy to wear on a day to day basis. It smells like straight up fresh strawberries. I got the Sport one to try something new and I have to say I am completely hooked! I haven’t used anything else since the day I got it! It is a fresh and unisex fragrance.

6. Banana Conditioner

B5

I wanted to try a moistuzing conditioner that will help nourish my hair and soothe down some frizz. I am not usually a banana fan but this smells absolutely wonderful because it is a bit of a mixed scent.

This is it for my crazy haul! I hope you enjoyed this post,

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! 🙂

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.

THE BODY SHOP COMPLETE STRAWBERRY RANGE REVIEW 

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.

What’s In My July 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 3rd August 2014

Hello everyone!

My Fab Bag subscription ended in May but I was so fed up of receiving vivel, cetaphil and body washes that I didn’t want to renew. So, I skipped on the June Fab Bag. After reading some raves about the July Bag I decided to renew my subscription.

This is what the bag looks like :

Fab2

The theme this month was “Double Trouble”!

Fab3

Here is what I received this month :

1. Iraya Wheatgerm Facial Massage Creme

Fab5

I’m only 22 and I don’t really believe in facials unless you’re 30. So, this is a waste product for me. I might give it to someone or use it as a body moisturizer. This would’ve been a great product for someone over 30.

2. BioBloom Hair Strengthening Oil + Cleanser Kit

Fab7

I would like to try the oil but the shampoo has a very pungent Ginger/Herb scent. I’m not sure if I want that kind of scent in my hair!

3. Deborah Milano II Rossetto Lipstick – 516 + Lipliner – 07

Fab4

I wonder when FabBag will stop sending me frosted lipsticks. I have received three frosted lipsticks now including this and I don’t wear frosted lipstick. What a shame! I’ll have to give it to someone too. The lip liner is lovely though. I wish they had sent only a full sized lip liner instead.

4. Free Sample – Vivel Cell Renew Deep Smoothing Body Lotion.

Fab6

Since this is a bonus product, I’m not going to complain too much but this is the second time we have received the same lotion and Vivel! Really? Vivel!

Anyway, here is what I got overall :

Fab1

This was an unfortunate bag for me. Had I been someone who is over 30 and enjoys facials or wears frosted lipstick, I would’ve been ecstatic but sadly, I am not. They really should pay attention to their consumer’s needs and preferences. Especially when they have all the information required because we fill a quiz.

What’s In My May 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Saturday, 7th June 2014

Hello everyone!

My Fab Bag arrived a long time ago! Around the 20th May. I was just busy and I didn’t get time to post my review. Anyway, better late than never!

The actual bag itself was not very pretty this time! The theme this month was “Summer Essentials”!

Image

Here is what I got in my bag this month :

1. Avene Cleanance Masque

Image

I am happy to receive this masque as I have oily skin, especially during the hot summer months! I have used it once and it does mattify slightly but not for a long time! The sample size is also generous and not one of those annoying 2 ml samples that do not even give you one full use!

2. Organic Surge Tropical Bergamot Body Scrub

Image

This is the full size product and I like body scrubs. However, it isn’t as abrasive as I would’ve liked it to be so I use it with bath gloves and it makes the skin very soft and smooth! 🙂

3. LA Splash Splash Proof Eyeshadow Base

Image

This is the product I am most excited by. I do not have oily eyelids but I am curious to find out if this increases the longevity of my eyeshadows! It feels kind of tacky on application so it must help powders to adhere to the skin better.

4. Bonus : MaxFactor Lasting Colour Collections Lipstick – English Rose

Image

This mini lipstick was such a let down. It is completely frosted and looks milky and uneven on the lips.They may as well have not included this in my bag! This is the second time I have received a frosted lipstick in my bag and I don’t wear frosted lipsticks. What a waste!

Here is what I got overall :

Image

This month was very so-so for me. The eyeshadow base was a winner. I am content with the face masque and body scrub. The lipstick was blah! My problem with fab bag remains that I want to receive more makeup items in my bag. I have my very own skincare routine that I have customized and built up over the years so I don’t like to mess with that. I wish they listened and sent out more makeup instead of bath products!

What’s In My April 2014 Fab Bag?

What’s In My March 2014 Fab Bag?

What’s In My February 2014 Fab Bag?

What’s In My January 2014 Fab Bag?

What’s In My November 2013 Vellvette Bag?

What’s In My September 2013 Vellvette Bag?

What’s In My April 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Saturday, 19th April 2014

Hello everyone!

My Fab Bag arrived yesterday, which is pretty early for FabBag. Usually my bag comes around 23rd to 28th of each month. I was busy with the Premia India Runway Week yesterday so I couldn’t blog about it straight away! Anyway, here goes :

Image

The bags get cuter each month! The theme for this month was “Girl On The Go”!

Image

So, here is what I got in my bag :

1. Beauty UK Blush and Brush – Isla Rose

Image

I have previously received a colorful Beauty UK eye shadow palette which was less than useless. But, I am impressed with this blush. It is slightly chalky and a bit powdery but it blends well so I can move past that.

Image

It has a lot of shimmer and chunky glitter in the pan which thankfully, doesn’t translate too much on the skin. This is a beautiful pink shade which looks natural and pretty on the cheeks.

2. I Love…Lip Shine – Raspberry & Blackberry

Image

Personally, I am not a lip gloss fan, I prefer matte lipsticks. But, for someone who likes lip glosses, this is a good one. It is non sticky and gives a lovely shine.

Image

It is a beautiful magenta pink color but, on the lips it looks like a very soft pink and it smells lovely too. Plus, this tube is huge so it will last you a long time! I just wish I was into lip gloss but, sadly I am not.

3. Sally Hansen Pedicure in a Minute

Image

This was the product I was most excited about! I really like Sally Hansen. During summers, we need our feet to look pretty and perfect specially with open toe shoes. I am looking forward to my next pedicure with this! 😀

4. The Nature’s Co. Cononut Creme Body Wash

Image

I absolutely love the smell of this! It smells EXACTLY like sweet coconut oil but slightly more like a wash than an oil. This sample will probably last me about 4 uses which I am very happy about. This is a bonus product but, there was no card for this. My only concern is that FabBag sends out too many shower gels. Over the months, I must have got 4-5 shower gels and there was a shower gel in my last bag too! This one has to be my favorite though. The previous ones were citrus or lemon which is boring to me!

Here is what I got overall :

Image

After receiving Cetaphil and Vivel, I thought there was no hope for FabBag, but they seem to be recovering from that disastrous bag of February! There were 3 full size products in this months bag. However, I would still prefer to receive luxury products or even luxury product samples rather than full size chalky ones. The product I am most excited about is the Pedicure in a Minute. Had I been a lip gloss person, I may have loved the gloss. But overall, the value of the bag was well recovered by these products.

MY BIG SHOE HAUL!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 15th April 2014

Hello everyone!

As promised in my last post, Huge Sarojini Nagar Clothes Haul, I will be showing you the shoes that I got recently! This huge haul is a result of various shopping trips and online orders spread over a few months! I am a Shopaholic, I know that! 😛 I usually wait till I accumulate a haul worthy amount of stuff and then post a collective haul! You may have already seen some of these pairs in my outfit posts.

Image

Purple Pumps – Rs. 799/- from http://www.thefashionchor.com

They are called “Hot Pink” patent pumps on the site and let me tell you, they are nowhere near hot pink! They’re definitely purple.

Image

Neon Orange Patent Pumps – Rs. 799/- from http://www.thefashionchor.com

These are neon orange on the site and they are truly neon orange! However, I am extremely disappointed with their service. They clearly mention their return policy on the website. I ordered a size 36 and they’re too tight. I wanted to return them for a size 37 but despite several emails and annoying form filling, they haven’t replied to my requests! Now I have to find a way to stretch them out! 😦

Image

Nude Peep Toes with Studs and Spikes – Rs. 1100 from TGIP, Noida. I don’t remember the name of the exact shop!

Image

Grey Scalloped Pumps – Rs. 899/- http://www.streetstylestore.com

Image

Golden Sparkle Wedges – Rs. 1299/- from http://www.streetstylestore.com

Image

Animal Print Pumps – Rs. 899/- from http://www.streetstylestore.com

Image

Royal Blue Booties – Originally Rs. 1300/- but on sale for Rs. 650/- from Stilettos ( Sarojini Nagar )

Image

White and Gold Sandals – Rs. 495/- from Stilettos ( Sarojini Nagar )

Image

Black Studded Booties – Originally Rs. 2400/- but on sale for Rs. 1200/- from Dolphin Shoes ( Sarojini Nagar )

Image

Silver Pumps with Flowers – Rs. 600/- from Fashion.com ( Sarojini Nagar )

F11

Gladiator Wedges – Rs. 2200/- from Forever21

This is it for my shoe haul. Another haul on accessories like jewelry and handbags will be up soon!

Anyway, excuses aside, I did want to share with you what I wore on all five days. So, here goes :

Peplum Belt – StalkBuyLove

Clutch – The Great India Place. Noida

Necklace – Sarojini Nagar

DAY 2

Outfit details :

Textured Pants – Lifestyle

Golden Wedges – StreetStyleStore

Cami – Forever21

Metallic Belt, Spike Ring – 20Dresses

Suede Maxi Skirt – Vintage

Lion Head Belt – 20Dresses

Leopard Pumps – StreetStyleStore

I didn’t want to wear black on Day4, I felt like wearing something bright and fun! Orange lipstick finished the look.

Outfit details :

Skirt, Rings – Forever21

Bag – CupidityOnline

Blouse, Necklace – Sarojini Nagar

Booties – Stellatos, Sarojini Nagar

DAY 5

Image

On the last day, I wanted to wear something very feminine and incorporate more black, since black ruled the runway! I really like how this outfit is sexy yet girly in a delicate way.

Outfit details :

Leopard Unitard – Forever21

Clutch – The Great India Place, Noida

Lion Head Belt, Spike Ring – 20Dresses

Hi-Low Skirt – Sarojini Nagar

Cuff – BGs

These were all my looks! I do not have one particular style, I love to experiment. I may be edgy one day in leather and girly another day in sheer chiffons!

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! 😛

I hope you enjoyed reading!

Glam’s Secrets Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss 802 Review, Photos!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Thursday, 8th August 2013

What Glam’s Secrets Claims :

Get a total beauty makeover with a brand that offers the most intricate blend of ingredients to weave a top of the shelf beauty brand that promises nothing but quality effects! It is equipped with only the best colours and shades that will ensure that you stand out no matter where. Glam’s Secrets holds the secret on how to look good all the time!

Image

Product Information :

  • Sheer color and intense moisture
  • Enhances the colour of your lips and gives them a shiny finish
  • Simple, one stroke application
  • With an exclusive blend of moisturisers
  • Comes in a beautifully designed package

Image

My Thoughts :

This is an absolutely wonderful lip gloss. it comes with a regular doe foot applicator that picks up enough product to coat the entire upper and bottom lip in one application.

Image

It is by far the most pigmented lip gloss I have ever used. It is almost like liquid lipstick.

The shade number is 802 and its a gorgeous classic red that can be worn alone or over lipstick.

Image

It is not sticky and almost stains the lips. It stays for a good 4-5 hours. The shine may go away but you’ll be left with a beautiful pigment of color on your lips.

You only need one swipe of this as it so pigmented.

Image

This is a picture of how it looks like on the lips with only one swipe.

While wearing this you will not have to worry about touch ups however, bleeding may be an issue. So I’d advice you to conceal the edges of your lips and set it with powder to avoid this from bleeding onto your face.

The GOOD :

1. Decently priced.

2. Very richly pigmented.

3. Non sticky.

4. Stays for hours.

The COULD BE BETTER :

1. In store availability might be an issue however it is available online easily.

Will I recommend and repurchase?

Yes! However, I might not need to repurchase it very soon because this will last me some time as I do not wear red lipstick everyday. I want to try other shades from this range. I will definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a red lip gloss.

Buy it for Rs. 220 for 8 gm here :
