What’s In My January 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 28th January 2014

Hello everyone!

My Fab Bag arrived a little late this month but it was worth the wait!

Image

The bags that they send out each month are so useful for carrying little things around! I have a collection of these now! 😛

The theme this month was The “Cold Comfort”

Here is what I got :

1. NYX Diamond Sparkling Lipstick in “Sparkling Red”

Image

I am so glad I received this color and not a copper or a brown! It looks lovely with a lot of shimmering glitter particles in it!

2. Naked Potion Lotion

Image

I have oily skin so this is too much for me. My mother on the other hand has drier skin so she was happy to try this product! She says it feels very moisturizing and makes the skin soft! It is a deluxe sample size.

3. Nyassa Almond Body Butter

Image

This smells like the soft almond candy we used to get! It is also a lovely handbag size tub.

4. I Love Mango Face Mask – 2

Image

These look so handy and easy to travel with. I am excited to try them! I am sure they smell yummy!

I am happy with this month’s Fab Bag. For the amount of money we pay for one bag, all these products are well worth the investment and you instantly recuperate the value of the bag!

One thing that I wish could be different was that they include a little more makeup and less skincare. Other than that, I am golden with this month’s bag! 🙂

Here is what I got overall :

What’s In My December 2013 Fab (Vellvette) Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 23rd December 2013

Hello everyone!

My Vellvette bag arrived early this month. Oh no wait, its Fab Bag now!

Anyway, I am glad they’re sending out bags early in time for Christmas and New Year.

Image

I always appreciate the bags they give every month. They’re so much better than boxes and these bags are really useful as makeup bags and also come in handy for travel.

The theme was Happy New You!

Image

Here is what I got :

1. Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Image

I am happy with this product. My cuticles get really dry especially during winters. I use Olive Oil on them every night. Let’s see how this works.

2. Kama Ayurveda Lavender Patchouli Hair Conditioner

Image

I have so many Kama Ayurveda samples from hotels, magazines etc though this is a good size sample. Plus this smells really strong. I don’t want such a strong Lavender scent in my hair. They also have brands like Kerastase, Lush, Toni&Guy in their brand portfolio but I haven’t received any product from them. I would prefer to receive a sample from higher end brands so that I can try the products before spending big bucks on them! Isn’t this the whole concept of a beauty bag anyway?

3. LA Splash Nail Splash – Blowfish Red

Image

Who doesn’t have a red nail polish? Maybe I was just unlucky! I have seen some beautiful glitter shades in other bags. I am just disappointed in mine! Let’s hope that at least the formula is amazing!

4. Bonus : Anna Andre Nail Enamel Remover

Image

Eh! What do I say about this? Its just a nail polish remover which is always good to have and it was a bonus product so I am not really complaining!

I am not too happy with this month’s bag. There was no makeup product. I want makeup! Not nail polish remover. I think the only product I am happy about is the cuticle cream. Last month’s bag was really good and I had high hopes for this month since it is the last bag of the year.

Anyway, Here is what I got overall :

What’s In My November 2013 Vellvette Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 1st December 2013

Hello everyone!

My Vellvette bag usually arrives around the 26th. It came on the 30th this time!

Image

But this time, it was worth the wait! 😀

The bag is adorable! Its black and pink! These bags are so useful for travelling.

Image

The theme this month was Band Baaja Beauty due to the blooming wedding season!

Image

Here is what I got :

1. Votre Pore Shrink Toner

Image

I have oily skin so this product might be good. I am excited to try it. I must admit I get very lazy with toners but shrunken pores will be a lucrative result! :-P. Plus, it is a very generous size sample so I will be able to tell if I like it enough to purchase the full size.

 2. MUA Power Pout Color Intense Lip Tint And Balm – Irreplaceable

Image

Lip crayons are so popular right now! They’re really comfortable to wear and I am so happy with the color I got!

I didn’t get a card for this product.

Image

MUA is a UK based brand. So, it is really nice that we get to try these international brands through Vellvette.

I am sure it is cheaper in the UK but the MRP on this is Rs. 1050/- so you immediately recuperate the amount that you pay for the bag! 🙂

3. Clinique Even Better Foundation – 05 Neutral ( MF )

Image

I have heard so many good things about this foundation. I am so glad Vellvette sent me something from a relatively high end brand this time.

I am excited to try this foundation especially now that my skin is drier in winters. They didn’t just send one tiny sachet, there are 4! That is a very good sample size for a foundation considering each sachet will last me about 2 uses.

Image

Another wonderful thing is that Vellvette matched the foundation to my skin tone PERFECTLY. It is not a tinge darker or lighter! I am highly impressed!

4. Anna Andre Extreme Elegance Matte Foundation – 30000

Image

I had ordered this foundation off their website and received it separately. I am very glad I did because I loved it when I used it. It is a very natural looking foundation and has a beautiful semi matte finish! 😀

5. Mary Kay Pencils

Image

These are extremely tiny and single use samples.

Image

Top To Bottom :

Eyeliner in Black / Noir

Eyeliner in Steely / Metallise

Lip Liner in Soft Blush / Rose Doux

Even though they’re little single use samples, I can tell that they’re budge proof! I rubbed and rubbed my hand and these didn’t move. It makes me want to purchase the full size because it is very hard to find budge proof eye and lip liners.

I am so happy with this month’s Vellvette bag! They probably read my complaints in the previous post! 😛

Also, I am mega glad that I got more makeup products this month! Well done Vellvette!

Here is what I got overall :

October Favorites!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 4th November 2013

I hope you had a lovely and safe Diwali! 🙂

Where did October go? In fact where did 2013 go? Well, no point getting into that.

I know I have been MIA lately. October has a lot of birthdays and festival preparations! I have been incredibly busy and didn’t have any time to sit and type! Stay tuned for a lot of hauls because that is what I have been doing! 😛 and this is what the festival season is all about!

This is my first favorites post and I did have some items that I wanted to tell you about.

Image

1. Lakme CC Cream

I have extremely oily skin but since the weather is changing, my skin has been acting weird. It is oily on some days and dry on others. So, on those blah days, I turn to this wonderful product. It is neither too drying nor too emollient. It has a perfect natural finish and feels like nothing on the skin. Keep it mind that it doesn’t have a ton of coverage but yes, it is build able. I use my sunscreen and a primer underneath. If you’re dry skinned then you will definitely need some prepping before this. I am wishing other drugstore brands would come out with CC creams too because I haven’t had any success with BB creams!

2. Florelle Wet & Dry Blush – Marmorized

Image

I received this blush in my October Vellvette Bag

This is a beautifully pigmented blush! It is perfect for fall and will go with any dark lipstick. It gives a believable sheen to the cheeks without depositing chunky glitter!

3. Lotus UV Screen Matte Gel

This is my Holy Grail sunscreen and I never step out in the sun without wearing it. I do not use moisturizer when I use this as sunscreens are emollient enough. This product also acts like a primer. It makes the skin appear smoother and makeup adheres better when I wear this. It will not melt off of your face and it doesn’t flash back! It offers SPF 50 and PA+++ protection. What’s not to love?

4. Sleek iDivine Eye Shadow Palette – Storm

Image

I LOVE Sleek products! I really wish they’d come to India. However you can order their stuff online from their website.

This is my go to everyday palette! I take this palette with me even when I travel and I am set in the eye shadow department. The shades are gorgeous, amazingly pigmented, smooth to apply, easy to blend…. And I can go on and on.

Sleek Blush Palette In “Lace” Review

Sleek Pout Paints in “Port”, “Lava” and “Pin Up” Review

5. Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme – Sheer Cherry

Image

This is another product I received in my August Vellvette Bag

I am not much of a lip gloss person. I prefer lipsticks and lip crayon things.

But this is such a beautiful coral pink color that I want to wear it everyday! 😛 ANNDDDD it makes the lips look fuller. It is non sticky, has a brush applcator and I don’t feel like my hair will stick to my lips. So Yay! 😀

6. Faces Eye Liner in Metal Brown

This is a very creamy liner and glides on easily on the upper lash line. It doesn’t tug on the delicate eye area and stays on pretty well! You can also use it on the waterline.

7. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

It is pigmented and stays on the waterline. It doesn’t give me raccoon eyes and doesn’t irritate them either!

Image

8. Maybelline Color Tattoo

I know this is a hyped product and rightfully so! I have to admit I was using them wrong before and didn’t quite understand the hype around them but now I absolutely love them! You only need to apply the thinnest layer. They’re pigmented and extremely long wearing + waterproof. They’re available in a multitude of colors but since I am most comfortable with neutral eyes I have been using a bronze shade and a gold one a lot during this month!

Image

9. QVS Flat Top Kabuki Brush

I use this brush for everything! Buffing foundation, applying powder, applying blush, blending bronzer! I own two as of now. Flat top brushes are very versatile and can be used for a variety of things! When I am in a hurry this is a god send because I don’t have to find a blush brush and a powder brush and a bronzer brush!

10. Inglot 17TL brush

Angled brushes are also very versatile. They can be used to apply eye liner, fill in the eyebrows, apply concealer around the lips….

I use this one for my brows and it is perfect!

Image

So that is it for my monthly favorites!

I hope you enjoyed reading and found this helpful!
