IMG20170203162942

Hello lovelies

It is 2017, and with my latest fashion posts, you might have witnessed a slight difference in my makeup routines. Maybe its the new year fever or the nip in the year which has made me take up dark lipsticks in my routine. I was honestly, always a pink and nude lip person, but thanks to this stunning lisptick from oriflame, I am now more than comfortable in wearing even wine purple shades in day time. If you want to know more about the pros and cons of the latest launch from Oriflame, keep on reading the post.

Becoming Assiya: A Tale Of War, Loss And The Pain Of Liberation

“A strange city with embittered, half sunken bodies and detached souls, the large beds (they’re all the same if you asked her), the strange smell of flowers and scents in the house when their wives and daughters were away, and then the dirt of whoring. The world was a crazy place, with crazy men, and without crazy love.”

Oriflame The One Lash Resistance Mascara Review and EOTD

20160916_135211

Lashes, one thing which is the new craze in 2017 makeup game. And if you ask me, a set of full lashes is the biggest deal breaker I have ever seen. A typical Indian woman has an inkling to go for her eyeliner for regular day makeup look, but if you ask me, a good mascara is all you need to open up your eyes and make your eyes look dolled up without making the makeup looking too obvious. But not all mascaras are made equal. And here I am with the detailed review of one of my most favourite mascaras from Oriflame The One range.

The Nature’s Co. Vitamin Hair Conditioner Review

IMG20161227133603

Hello my damsels!

I am the last person who you will find grooming or styling their hair. Belonging to a Sikh family, I have never trimmed or styled my hair, and whatever hair I have on my scalp is just the natural growth which has been cropping since 1994. So cutting it short, I solely rely on my hair care routine for proper growth and nourishment which I aim to achieve through my hair oils, shampoos, conditioners and hair masks. And I have tried so many of them for coming to a conclusion about my favourite hair care products. In my hoard to find my perfect hair conditioner, I tried The Nature’s Co. Vitamin Hair Conditioner and here is the detailed review of the same.  Read more

IMG20161008143509

Hola my princes and princesses!

Gone are the days when restaurants and cafes were meant for the sole purpose of fancy lunches and dinners. And now with the festive season bringing along with it loads of holidays; restaurants and cafes are all prepared for launching their exquisite breakfast menus. All of us have a certain few favourite restaurants which we tend to visit and revisit time and again. One such favourite place for me and my team is Smokeys BBQ and Grill, a very american inspired eatery in the suburbs of Khan Market, Delhi. And when your favourite place launches a new menu, paying them a visit and updating all you people about it becomes more of an unquestioned task.

10 Products From NYX Which You Must Check Out!

NY_12272951._nyx-soft-matte-lip-cream-all-11-color-you-ever

Nyx, one makeup brand which makes us see makeup in  a different light altogether. And now that NYX has officially launched in India, why shouldn’t this brand be on everyone’s wishlist? After all, NYX cosmetics has time and again won us all over with their amazing product formulations, gorgeous shades, and incessant range variety; and if we ignore the fact that it is too expensive for a drugstore brand here in India, this brand is really something to go weak in the knees for. Who could not fall in love with such a makeup brand?
Now that we have been screamingly declaring our never-ending love for NYX, some of you might be wondering about our top picks from the brand. So, here my lovely readers, is a compilation of the 10 must-have products from NYX that you must try.
1. Nyx Eyeliner and Smudger in Dark Brown

eye
This was the second gel eyeliner I had used, and man, oh man! How badly did I fell in love with it. The dark brown hue, the amazing texture, and the brilliant creamy-matte texture is to die-for. The gel liner in dark brown is a very wearable shade, insanely pigmented, and lasts for up to a good 4-5 hours on the lids without a base.
2. Nyx face primer in Lavender

4d04d5a744af311155e8befc210516df
Good make-up needs a nice, clean and prepped canvas (read face) to work upon—and NYX knows this concept a bit too well. That’s why it created this spectacular face primer for your beautiful skins. The sheer lavender hue in the primer imparts a subtle glow to your face and does away with all the yellow undertones and pigmentation of the facial skin, decreases the appearance of pores, and smoothens out the skin; making your foundation blending a breezy job.

3. Nyx Slide-on eye pencil in tropical green

6690928670172a8439184bad5f38cd50
The most insanely pigmented gorgeous dark green we have ever came across, the NYX slide-on eye pencil in tropical green excels beyond any limits and leaves no stone unturned in impressing us. Be it the pigmentation, the gorgeous colour, the creaminess, the smooth texture, or the lasting power; it scores a perfect 10 on 10.

4. Nyx Golden liquid eyeliner

58c807553350a2b74cb127e204b43989
Golden liquid liners are saviours for our warm skin with yellow-undertones. And NYX has made sure to create a fabulous liquid liner in a very-opaque golden colour which shows upon just a couple of strokes on the eyes—unlike other sparkly liners which do not show up at all on dark skins. This one is a definite try!

5. Nyx Trio in 21-Copper, Rust, Bronze

4b12d77f273f8ded3fc67c05e2d25283
Just a look at this trio—and the colour range is bound to make you fall for it, and fall hard. The shade range can be classified as apt for the modern-day bride who loves to experiment without straying away much from the traditional makeup. The texture of these is so smooth, not at all powdery or chalky, and it glides on like a dream.

6. Nyx round lipstick in tea rose

5a96bf9742d74787e3a9c875c63ead4f
NYX round lipsticks are generally a makeup newbie’s first purchases from the house of NYX! I don’t know why but I have somehow observed this makeup shopping pattern. 😉 So if you are one of those who is starting to build up her nyx collection, start up with getting your hands upon this sweet shade—tea-rose—from the round lipstick range. It shows up so beautifully on Indian skin tones as if it was created to suit us only.

7. Nyx extreme lip creams

9f97699687b2b4c7bda9a3779820cafc
NYX matte lip creams were the first of its kind to be launched in the market; inspiring so many other brands to get their own variations out. But, the original is always the best, and NYX went a step further and improved its already “THE BEST” lip creams and launched the Extreme lip creams! What better can we ask for! And the shade SIERRA, girl, take my word for it, is the most ravishing lip colour you’ll ever lay your hands upon.

8. Nyx Matte lipstick in Pinky Nude

9d6529b41b560c8ddefdd65339fe6f14
Matte lipsticks are so in this season, and the NYX matte lipstick in Pinky Nude is the perfect, as the name suggests, Pinky nude colour for Indian skin tones. Surprisingly, it is one of those nudes from a foreign brand which does not wash out Indian skin tones; and we love it!

9. Nyx Rouge cream blush in 07 Red cheeks

4b21a145d45f255770feca8abfd67fb1
Red blush is something most of us feel apprehensive about using when it comes to subtle makeup. But NYX rouge cream blush in 07 red cheeks was apparently formulated to clear all your misconceptions in regards to red cheeks. This cream blush gives a rosy lit-from-within glow, suitable for fair-medium-dusky—all kinds of skin tones; perfect for those in the lookout for a subtle sheen on the cheeks.

10. Nyx powder blush in Taupe and Desert rose

4c9b4d28ba3d8902aa1d6802e7001bcc
If there is one product that we have to choose from NYX which we cannot do without, it is the powder blushes, undoubtedly, thus we saved them for the last. 😛 the texture of these blushes is so amazingly smooth and sheer, that no one can say no to it. Coming in an array of gorgeous shades, you are sure to find one you cant live without. We personally love taupe, a warm chocolaty brown which can double up as a sheer bronzer; and desert rose which is a gorgeous, warm coraly-peachy blush which will liven up the entire look with just one swipe.

Which of these NYX products are you thinking of trying?

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour Swatches and First Impressions

revlon hd

Hey sweeties!

As some of you might have guessed by now, I have a thing for new makeup launches and I just feel it necessary to get the swatches of the entire new collecton just to devour and also to make it easy for you guys to choose which colours do you want from the collection.

So recently Revlon launched its new HD Ultra Mat Lip Colour range with 8 shades ranging from nudes, pinks and reds in india. These lip colours are already launched in the west since quite some time, and the reviews I had read about these babies were not too promising. But I am astrong believer of seeing the product for mylsef before passing judgements over the same, and so here I am with all the shades and swatches of the new Revlon HD Ultra Matte Lip Colour for you sweethearts!

Price: INR 1195 (which if you ask me is a complete downer, like 1200 bucks for a drugstore lip gloss is so not cool!)

revlon 5

HD Seduction

HD Seduction is the only brown nude shade with pink undertones in it. This is the most gorgeous and such a ME kind of nude shade which will flatter only fair to medium skin tones and might not suit duskier beauties. I can see this shade working as the perfect nude brown shade for indian skin tones when paired with a sultry smokey eye or a heavy kohl.

IMG_7553

HD Devotion

HD Devotion is a very subtle nude pink shade with warm undertones making it the perfect choice for almost all Indian skin tones. Very dark skinned beauties may looks washed out by this shade but other than that it will work with a vast array of skin tones. I found this shade pretty universal and got it for myself as well.

revlon 4

HD Flirtation

HD Flirtation is the perfect coral-ly peachy toned lipstick and it definitely speaks summer to me. Though it is a beautiful coral shade, it looks a bit pale and would not work well with dark skinned beauties. It might make you look garish or ashy and is definitely a tricky colour to pull off.

revlon 1

HD Addiction

HD Addiction is a really pretty fall-winter shade. It is a deep berry shade with vivid hints of plums and mauves in it. It is a deep yet subtle shade and will look very sophisticated when worn with minimal eye makeup and heavy lashes. Although I personally do not like berry shades for my age, I surely fell in love with this one and would love to give berry lipsticks a shot now.

revlon 7

HD Obsession

HD Obsession is a bright fuchsia lip colour which has very vivid cool undertones to it. It is one of the unique shades from the range and will complement indian skin tones well. Being a cool toned lipstick it will also make your teeth look whiter so if you are someone who feels fuchsia’s tend to make yopur teeth look yellow, you should definitely give this shade a try.

revlon

HD Temptation

HD Temptation will be perhaps the least popular shade from the range. it is a pale pink which looks rather milky, has cool undertones and is low on pigmentation. Very fair skinned girls can totally rock this colour but if you are even a little over NC 30 this shade will definitely wash you out.

revlon 3

HD Love

HD Love is your perfect orange based red which looks very vibrant and has strong yellow undertones to suit Indian skin perfectly. The shade is a bright orangey-red and a bright one at that. Shades like these need confidence, and if you have an ounce of that you can rock this bold yet bright shade beautifully.

revlon 7

HD Passion

HD Passion is a deep burgundy maroonish red which leans a bit towards 2015 pantone colour marsala. It is not exactly an ox-blood red but is a very deep burgundy sort of red which looks very vampy to me and will suit fair to dusky skin tones alike. HD passion will look much more flattering on duskier skin tones as it has very strong yellow undertones which will make the colour pop on duskier beauties.

Honestly, none of these settle into a pure matte, or even a demi matte finish. Rather all of these remain velvety and smudge easily. So which of the shades did you like the most?
