How to Contour and Highlight Face

Contouring and highlighting are quite a trend in the world of beauty.

Highlight, word itself explains everything. It’s the technique that highlights certain part of the face. Contouring is the technique to add depth and structure to the facial structure..!

If you imagine yourself standing in front of a source of light, the facial area where light falls are the areas we highlight. Areas where shadow falls, we apply contouring product.

Contouring product comes in different forms – Powder, stick etc. If you have a foundation that is darker than your skin tone, that can also be used to do contouring.!

When I say Highlight, I am not using shiny product. i am using product that is lighter than skin tone. It can be as simple as concealer that’s lighter in shade.

Let’s start with the techniques step by step.

Facial areas where we apply highlighter:

  • Under eyes
  • In the middle of forehead
  • Nose bridge
  • Cupidbow
  • Chin

 

Facial areas to contour:

  • On cheeks
  • Forehead
  • Either sides of nose
  • Jaw line

Blend:
You can use brush or beauty blender to blend in.

For highlighter it’s a normal dab blending. But for contouring the strokes differ for different area of your face.
On cheeks – Towards upper side of the line.
Forehead – Upwards
Nose – dab
Jaw line – Downwards

Once the blending is done, seal it with compact.

Here is the quick video to demonstrate the techniques.

TONYMOLY Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch Review

Skin covering lips is thin and needs more hydration. Lip balms are good way to do so but once in a while they need deep hydration just like our facial skin.

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper Review

Hello,

Thanks to Kardashians and Jenners, plump lips is one of the crazy things in the world of glam.

While there are a lot of products claiming that they give you plump lips, I have come across multiple medium to good reviews of this one lip plumping product called – lip injection.

Na, I am not saying injections/ needles. It’s the product’s name.

Have you heard about the brand ‘Too faced’? They have this lip product called ‘Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper’. The brand wasn’t available in India until last week. Nykaa has now launched this brand and the products are now available online and at Nykaa stores.

Needless to say, I was quite curious to try this out. I said curious but I knew it will not be any magical portion to give any drastic results. So, I bought a smaller sized product this week. Let me tell you how it worked or not worked for me.

Brand : Too Faced

Product Name : Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper

Mygirlypedia.com

It has all details about the product. Ingredients, shelf life, how to use, what to expect etc.

Product comes in a transparent tube packing, just like a lip-gloss packing. The golden cap with the design makes it look interesting. The transparency of the tube makes it easier to keep an eye on quantity of the product inside.

The applicator is quite soft and it is typical doe foot applicator. Makes it easy to apply the product.

Fragrance:
It has very fresh fruity smell. Reminds of boomer chewing gums.

Color:
It is transparent with glossy finish.

My Experience:
It says apply it on perimeter of your lips. Wait for 5 to 10 minutes for it to work.
Instead of going with the instructions, I applied it all over my lips.

I had seen bunch of videos/ reviews. Where the YouTubers used to say that after few seconds of applying it starts working. It feels like multiple needles on lips, it stings. Some even said it feels like your lips are burning.

In my case, hell no..! I did feel little tingling within few seconds of application. But that’s it. Nothing more than that. Tingling lasted for a minute max. I was expecting little more (thanks to the tons of reviews I had watched before) but it did not do anything much..!

Here are the before and after pictures of my lips. After picture was taken after 7 minutes of application.ย I can see very minute change, nothing โ€˜extremeโ€™ in terms of plumping.

Mygirlypedia.com

Let’s talk about hydration. I must say, it did add good hydration to my lips. I have dry lips. Regular application of lip balm, every hour at least, is a must. But this did add enough hydration. I did not feel any dryness for 3 to 4 hours. It’s a satisfying amount of time considering the fact that I have dry lips and I sit in air conditned environment.

Things I Liked:

  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Transparent bottle makes it easier to keep track of the quantity left inside.
  • Smells nice.
  • Adds hydration to your lips.
  • You can use it above lipstick to add shine and hydration.
  • Applicator makes the application easy.
  • Non sticky consistency slides easily.

 

Thing I Did not Like:

  • Main purpose of the product is not really served. Plumping wasn’t much in my case at least.
  • Pricey.

Repurchase:
Umm I don’t think I will repurchase. In fact I am glad that I went for smaller version instead of the bigger one. I loved the hydration part. But I have bunch of good lip balms which add hydration, with price way less than this one. Plus, plumping did not really worked for me. So I don’t think I will buy again.

MCaffeine Naked & Raw Coffee Body Scrub : Review and Swatch

Scrubbing is a step in skin care, where with a scrub we remove the dead skin cells. This in turn helps in unclogging the pores and helps in improvising health of skin. Just like scrubbing the facial skin, we need to use scrub to remove dead cells from our body as well.

4F431FCC-68A6-4DA4-97CE-EED81A6757E5
Mygirlypedia.com

Note: Facial skin is thinner as compared to skin covering our body. So the scrub which is meant for scrubbing body should not be used on face. The granules in the body scrub can be harsh for the face. Like wise, facial scrub may or may not be beneficial when used on body.

I have always loved the ones from beauty co. Made detailed review video as well. You can watch the video here.

Just to try something new in body scrub, I bought and tried this coffee scrub from the brand . Let’s see the details.

Mygirlypedia.com

The product comes in a glass jar. It is quite sturdy and heavy. I like glass packing. They look classy. Let me tell you I have tested the sturdiness of the jar by dropping it (accidentally, of course).

I have mentioned this in my earlier review posts, I like the packing with the details on the container, not just the outer packing. Because we hardly keep the outer packing. It comes handy to keep track of the details (especially expiry date) if it is printed on the container containing the product.

Fragrance:
Are you a coffee person??? or at least loveeee coffee fragrance??? This is definitely going to steal your heart. This has a very nice fragrance of coffee (filter coffee to be precise.)

Texture:
It is dry powder.

2246AE1C-84EF-40A8-A1DD-7A9F70E9C300
Mygirlypedia.com

How to use??

My Experience:

Before starting with it, let me tell you I have almost finished this first bottle of mine…!! So I can confidently say have fully tested this product.

To begin with, always use scrub on wet skin. Else the friction when rubbed might cause more harm than good to your skin..!!!

So on wet skin I applied the scrub. Scrub is dry in texture so you might find the need to add a little bit of water to it to make a paste like consistency. I did.

The granules are of right size to scrub the body. They are quite gentle. That’s the thing I liked the most. Plus, it smells heavenly. Coffee lovers are going to love this product for sure.

Post scrubbing, skin usually feels dry. But this didn’t make my dry skin scream for moisture. I can’t say it totally added moisture to my skin, but it didn’t make it worst either.

In short, it left my skin soft and didn’t dry it.

Pros:

  • Smells heavenly.
  • Granules are perfect to scrub away the dead skin cells from body.
  • Sturdy packing.
  • Little goes long way. So a single bottle lasts for good amount of time.
  • Cruelty free product.

Cons:

  • None for me.

Will I Repurchase??
I have a stock of body scrubs from this brand. Once it’s over I will repurchase this one for sure.

Will I Recommend??
Yes. It worked for my dry skin and it smells so yummy.

  • Freshens breath

Water:

Fresh water. A Liter should be more than sufficient.

Glass Bottle:

Why glass bottle? Glass because it is not only good for our planet but also for us. Glass bottles repel food odours and residual flavours. They also significantly extend the flavour and quality of food stored in them. Plus, unlike plastic these glass bottles won’t release any chemicals.

04A217A3-4B0A-48D9-A8B8-435EE8C02065

How to prepare?

It’s pretty simple. Chop and put first four ingredients into the glass bottle. Add water. Place the bottle inside fridge overnight.

Overnight – because time is required for the water to get the flavours/ for the ingredients to work.

Fridge – because drinking cold water helps in improving metabolism and helps in weight loss. Body has to work harder for the cold water to reach the normal body temperature. Thus more calories are burnt.

Consume it on an empty stomach for better results.

I can say the recipe I have is mostly for the weight loss. What’s more better than losing weight by consuming something..!!! #LazyGirlsDream

If you are also on the journey of losing weight, do add this detox water in your routine. This tastes good (thanks to lemon and mint) and you will feel fresh after consuming.

Do you have any detox water recipe that you have tried??? Please share with us in the comments. Love to try something new.

Causes and Remedies to Treat Dark Underarms

When the skin covering our underarm area is few shades darker than our skin tone, that is what we call dark underarms. Yet times, dark underarms can lower the fun and confidence while we are in sleeveless outfits. We tend to hesitate to throw our hands in the air and be free, if we have darker underarms. This post is going to help you with that.

What Causes Dark Underarms:

They say prevention is better than cure. In order to prevent further darkening, let’s see what are the things that are causing dark underarms.

624318290-H

  • Dead skin:
    Like facial skin, skin covering our body also needs exfoliation. Reason being the accumulation of dark skin cells. As the dead skin accumulate, they make skin look dull and dark.
  • Shaving:
    Shaving cuts the hair, it doesn’t remove the hair from roots. Once we shave, the hair follicles are still there. They make the skin look slightly darker.
  • Deodorant:
    I agree that a deodorant is a must to smell good, but I always prefer and suggest to use perfume over a deodorant. Using perfume over the outfit is much better than using it straight on skin. Chemicals in the deodorants can cause skin darkening, if used for longer period of time.
  • Hyper-pigmentation:
    It is a skin condition where the production of melanin (responsible for skin tone) is slightly higher at certain part as compared to the other parts of the body. In this case the extra amount of melanin produced, makes skin look darker. Which we usually call dark patches.
  • Tight Clothes:
    This might come as a surprise. But skin covering under arm area is slightly thin. The friction caused by the tight clothes can irritate the are underarms and result in discoloration.
  • Bacterial Infection:
    Due to lack of hygiene, there might be infection caused by bacteria.
  • Smokerโ€™s Melanosis:
    Smoking kills. It also ruins the skin condition. Smokerโ€™s Melanosis is a condition caused by tobacco where the underarms gets darker.
  • Sun exposure:
    Not only the underarms, if we get exposed to direct sunlight for longer period, we might end up with sun burns or tanning on the exposed area.
  • Hormonal Issues:
    If you are under any medications or there is fluctuation in hormones, there is a chance that the skin gets these dark patches.
  • Skin Disorders:
    There are certain skin disorders which result in dark patches.

How to Cure Dark Underarms:

Now that you know most of the causes for nasty patches, you are half way there. You now know what not to do and what to do to get brighter, healthy underarm skin.!

clearskin633x319

  • Waxing Over Shaving. When we wax, the hair strands are removed from their roots. So the skin won’t look dark.
  • As mentioned above, use perfumes on your outfits rather than using it on your skin. But please make sure the perfume won’t leave any stains on your outfit. You need to consider this point especially when it is oil based one.
  • Try to avoid wearing tight clothes. Not just because of the dark patches, but also sometimes it causes irritation to small blood veins. Which might also end up causing further more skin issues. Choose free, loose clothes. Let your skin breath.
  • Maintaining a good hygiene is the key. Shave the hair on the underarm area frequently. Use talcum powder to keep the area dry and free from bacteria.
  • Apply sunscreen on to your underarms if you are going out in sun wearing sleeveless outfits, where the area is going to be exposed directly to sun.
  • Scrubbing away the dead cells can make the skin look fresh and bright, it includes the skin covering underarms too. Regular scrubbing the underarm area can give you good results.
  • Try some homemade masks using brightening agents like curd or lemon. Apply curd on to the area in need and wash with water after 10 minutes. Lemon juice is slightly acidic and if you have dry or any wounds on the area, lemon juice might cause slight burning sensation. But with regular use, you can get rid of dark patches.
  • If the condition didn’t improve despite of following these remedies, please see a good dermatologist. Because if the issue is inside the body (like hormones or skin disorder), a good doctor’s help would surely help.

All You Need to Know About BB Creams

If you have been following me on Instagram, you already know which cream I use for daily purpose.

Some of you had few queries regarding BB creams. So this short yet informative post will help you with those queries.

Let’s start with a very basic question.

What does BB stands for?

BB stands for Blemish Balm or Beauty Balm.

What is a BB cream?

BB cream is a tinted cream which covers skin imperfections like a foundation, adds moisture like a moisturizer and protects skin from harmful sunrays like a sunscreen.

What Does a BB Cream Do?

It’s all in cream. It adds moisture, soothe skin, hide scars, protects from sunrays, brightens and adds glow, even out skin tone.

Some BB creams also have the ingredients to fight against aging.

Origin:

It was introduced by a German doctor 50 years ago. The prime purpose was to heal skin, cover the scars.

Isnโ€™t a BB cream a kind of Foundation?

Foundation is slightly heavier as compared to BB cream. The coverage that a foundation provides is more than a BB cream. As BB cream is lighter, it gives light to medium coverage.

Difference between tinted moisturizer and BB cream:

Tinted moisturizer adds moisture to skin while adding glow or covering the skin issues slightly. BB cream is thicker than tinted moisturizer. It adds some moisture while covering skin imperfections and adding glow to skin.

What sort of finish does a BB cream gives?

Some BB creams give you dewy finish and some give you matte one.

How to apply BB cream?

Like any other cream, you can use your clean finger tips or beauty applicators to apply it on your face.

BB cream for daily usage:

Well the good news is, the BB cream can help you skip couple of products. BB cream sooth the skin. Hence you can skip Primer, if you use one. As mentioned earlier, it adds moisture so you can skip applying moisturiser. BB cream with full coverage can let you say bye to your concealer as well.

Apply BB cream on cleansed face if you have oily or normal skin. If you have dry skin and feel more moisture is needed, you can apply a moisturizer and then apply BB cream.

Even though BB cream does protects our skin from harmful sun rays, it might or might not do the work as efficient as a sunscreen. If you are going to spend whole day out in sun, I would suggest you to wear your favourite sunscreen over the BB cream for more protection.

How will I find a right BB cream for my skin?

BB cream comes in different shades. Do check the shades by applying the testers available in any shops. Because if the shade goes wrong, it might make you look a shade dark or pale.

For skin type, got to check the description of the BB creams about the benefits it is offering. In order to find the right one, you might have to just try few to find out the right one. Because dry skin needs more moisture and oily skin needs matte finished one.

Hope this helps. If you have any more queries, do ask in the comment section. Happy to help ๐Ÿ˜Š

6 Different Uses of Lip Balm; No, Applying on Chapped Lips is Not One Of Them..!!

Irrespective of the amount of love you have for makeup, lip balm is something almost every girl is familiar with. Today I am going to tell and show you how to use the lip balm other than to heal your chapped lips.

  • Eyebrow gel:

Eyebrow gel is a transparent gel applied on to eyebrows to keep the eyebrow in place for a long time. This gives the well groomed and neat look to your eyebrow. You can replace the eyebrow gel with a non tinted lip balm. Apply the lip balm on eyebrows and it will make sure to keep the eyebrow hair in place all day long.

  • Transparent Mascara

Mascara is used to define the eyelash and give fuller eyelash look. Transparent mascara is going to do the same trick. Instead of buying a new mascara, you can use a lip balm with no tint do the same trick.

  • Cuticle Cream

Our cuticle need moisture too. Added moisture prevents cuticle from becoming dry and brittle. Apply a layer of lip balm on cuticles before going to bed. Let it add same moisture which a cuticle cream would add.

  • Eye Cream

Skin under the eye area is very thin and needs more hydration. By adding more hydration and moisture we can prevent dark circles, slow down the signs of aging too. If you do not have eye cream handy, you can apply lip balm under your eye to add the moisture. I prefer non tinted lip balm for the obvious reason. I mean I don’t want to scare anyone by applying a tinted lip balm under my eyes, do you??? ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Eye shadow

Yet time it so happens that you are out and you don’t have much makeup handy. But you got to glam up for a last minute plan, all you need is a tinted lip balm.

Swipe couple of layer on your eyelids and dab. There you go, a pretty eye shadow.

  • Blush

Just like you applied the tinted lip balm on your eyelids, apply it as blush to get that flushed glow.

  • Highlighter

Firstly, if you want to know why and how to apply highlighter, do watch this quick easy video of mine.

If you want to try a very pocket friendly highlighter, try using a lip balm with no tint. This will add that glow and highlight the facial area on which you have applied the lip balm.

Here is the video where I have demonstrated all the points which have been mentioned above.

I hope you find the tips useful. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

Nivea Coloron Crayon : Review and Swatch

You might have seen the Nivea lip balm in the local drug stores. Might have tried them too. Recently in my rndom haul, I came across this new launch from Nivea that is coloron crayon. Being super enthusiast for lip products, needless to say, I did by this product. Let’s see more about this product.

They have three shades in this range:

Click on the images below, to buy the shade you like.

1 Pop red

2 Coral crush

3 Hot pink.

Only first two shades were available in the store I visited and I went with the shade Pop red.

What does company claims:

Ingredients:

Price:

299 INR post discount 249 INR for 3 gram or 3.3 ml

Shelf life:

29 months. Once opened, 12 months.

Packing:

The outer cartoon has this all the details about the product including the mode of use, ingredients etc.

The product comes in crayon packing. it’s beautiful red stick with the name of the company printed on it. The cap covering the product is transparent which makes it easier to recognise the colour of the product using. The bottom is the white twister you can twist it, in order to take out the product. The red and black color combo makes it look pretty.

The crayon packing is a good travel companion.

Shade:

It’s a pretty red shade, which is ideal for a day out or party.

 

Is it moisturizing:

Yes. It does keep your lips moisturized. My lips felt moisturized for about four hours, while I was in air conditioned environment. Mentioning this because you know air conditioning makes skin dry.

But I must say, if you have dry lips, it does highlight the cracks. Even though your lips feel moisturized, the cracks are still visible. Strange… ๐Ÿ˜ช

Texture:

It has creamy texture. Has shimmery particles. But it doesn’t look tacky, but I’m not a fan of this kind of finishing either.

Does it transfer:

Yes it did.

How long did it last:

Company itself has mentioned on the product to reapply to keep lips moisturized and tinted, so can’t expect a long lasting formula.
The shimmery texting fades away pretty soon, with water and food. But it leaves the tint on your lips. This lasted for about three to four hours on my lips.

Once Applied

My take:

This is a pretty good for the amount we are paying. It moisturizes lips and gives good color payoff.

Even though I know some lipsticks which are good at keeping lips moisturized and cost you less, this product wins when it comes to moisturization. My lips didn’t feel the need for a lip balm.

But I didn’t like the fact that it highlighted the lines or cracks on lips.

Pros:

  • Availability.
  • Travel friendly packing.
  • Keeps lips moisturized.
  • Good color payoff.
  • Decent deal for the money paid.

Cons:

  • I’m not a fan of shimmery finish.
  • Highlights the cracks, if you have dry lips.

Black Dress And Bold Lips : OOTD

We all have two moods when it comes to dressing up – either we dress up like a homeless or we dress up like we are going to meet our worst enemy. Well I had a latter one kind of a day.

Thought that initiated this look is ‘bold lips’. You guys know how much I love lipsticks or any lip product in general. Seemed like my whole collection was wandering between different shades of either red, pink or some shades of n*de. Umm light, cool shades in general. Recently I came across some pictures of one of my favourite influencer @avantii2 on Instagram. She had carried these bold lips so elegantly that I had to, had to try my hands on them.

Lipstick alone is a great accessory you can carry. I did exactly that with this look. Tried these bold lips for the first time. I kind of like it. I used two shades of lipsticks from Elle 18.

About choosing this outfit. For the zillion time – Black is my happy colour. It’s classy, always. Winter is my favourite season of all. I love layering up. This black body hugging outfit is from the brand ‘Forever 21’. The turtle neck and the fabric is just perfect for a dinner night during chilly winter nights. The cold shoulder sleeves add some fun to the outfit.

It is still quite cold here in Pune. So just to increase the points in layering game, chose to wear these stockings.

Footwear – These black heels from the brand catwalk, bought online from Myntra.

The Body Shop Mango Body Yogurt : Review

Hello,

Body lotion is something which is a must for us, whose has dry skin. As I had promised in my last product review post, I am reviewing body lotions from my collection, one by one.

While picking up the lotion for review, I noticed that I have many products from the brand ‘The Body Shop’. From their skin care range to hair care, I have most of them. #Shopaholic.

So, today the product I picked up is this body yogurt from the brand The Body Shop. These body yogurts were introduced somewhere last year. They have consistency of yogurt and as usual I was very excited to try something from this new launch. tada… I did. They have claimed that it is best suited for dry skin. Let’s see how it worked for my dry skin.

Brand : The Body Shop.

Range : Body Yogurt

What Does The Company Claims:

1) No time to moisturise? Now you do. Our Body Yogurts can be applied straight onto damp skin, so you can shower, moisturise and dress straight away.

2) Theyโ€™re 100% vegan (we love cruelty-free beauty!).

3) Each Body Yogurt is enriched with Community Trade organic almond milk from Spain.

4) They have a fast-absorbing, non-sticky, non-greasy, gel-cream formula that leaves the skin feeling moisturised for up to 48 hours.

Flavours: Yes, they are available in five different flavours. Trust me, they all smell delicious. Even a friend of mine smelled the body yogurt and she was like, “get me a spoon, I will eat this”. haha.

The 5 flavours available in Indian market are:

  • Mango (Which I loved the most.)

    ย 

  • British Rose

  • Strawberry

  • Almond Milk

  • Moringa

  • Banana

PS: You can click on each image above to buy the flavour you like.ย 

Price: Rs 845 for 200 ml

Shelf Life: 32 months. Once opened, 12 months.

Best part : Itโ€™s cruelty free. The Body Shop has special place in my heart because of their cruelty free products and the campaign they started to stop poor animals getting harmed while making cosmetics. ๐Ÿฐ

Packing:

It comes in this cute, little, sturdy plastic tub pack with all details printed on it. The colour of the tub is in match with the flavour of the product inside. So it makes it easier to recognise the product without having to opening it up. The plastic cap covering the tub is quite sturdy and tight. Thus you can carry it while you travel.

Only drawback I can see in this kind of packing is the hygiene. Because with tube packing you can squeeze out the required quantity of product out and use. Whereas in tub packing, you got to dip your fingers to take out the product. So in terms of hygiene, tube packing over tub packing, always.

Fragrance:

It smells delicious. Are you a lover of mango??? You are going to love this. As soon as you open the pack a very sweet fragrance lingers in air. I must say this fragrance is quite strong. As I love this fragrance, I don’t find it as a con.But girls with sensitive nose might find it little over empowering. Good thing about this fragrance is, it fades away soon, post applying on skin.

Colour:

This is definitely a yummy colour.

Consistency:

This is a gel + cream like consistency. Very light. It is non greasy, non-oily. Once applied, gets absorbed really quick.

My Experience:

I did apply this post bath when skin requires moisture the most. As I mentioned earlier, it got absorbed quite fast and made my skin feel smooth. Which most of the lotions do.

Real test for a body lotion/ body care product comes during evening. Where skin becomes dry again. But for a surprise, my skin was feeling normal. It wasn’t dry as it always does by evening. As company has claimed 48 hours moisture and my skin wasn’t too dry, I skipped re applying it in evening to test the claim. But by morning my skin had become dry again. So, out of my experience, 48 hours might not hold true for dry skin. But I must say it did a good job by keeping skin moisturised all throughout the day.

Pros:

  • Kept my skin moisturised all throughout the day.

  • Light formula.

  • Non greasy, non-oily.

  • Little quantity is enough as compared to body creams.

  • Yummy fragrance.

  • 5 different flavours to choose from.

  • Travel friendly and cute packing.

Cons:

  • Tub packing is quite problematic when it comes to hygiene.

  • Some might find it pricey.

  • Fragrance fades away quite soon.

Will I recommend this to you???

Yes if you have dry skin and no time to re-apply lotion, this one is for you.

Will I repurchase?

Yes. I prefer these kind of body care products while I travel, where I don’t get time to sit and apply lotion frequently. Apply once a day and you are good to go kind. But next time, would like to try out different flavour.

Why You Should Add Rice and Banana Powder To Your Makeup Bag

Hey Beautiful,

Makeup or the beauty industry is huge and interesting. There is always one or the other new trend, new product that enters every single day. Some make the world go crazy, some might not. Some become the trend of the year some become disasters. Today I am going to talk about couple of products I found interesting when I heard about them.

Rice Powder:

The first product I am talking about is rice powder. Ummm as the name suggests it is inspired by the rice powder or flour. Rice flour is a good oil absorbent thus a boon for oily skinned girls. It absorbs the extra oil and thus saying bye to the shiny/ greasy face.

When I say it is ‘inspired’, obviously I am not talking about using rice powder as a cosmetic because if we do so, we will end up looking like a ghost.

There are multiple brands who have introduced this product called rice powder to the market. They come in different colour shades to match different skin tones.

Rice powder is basically lose powder, applied on face for a flawless look. You can say they work like compact powder. Applied post applying foundation. To absorb extra oil and for a flawless, matte finish. So, if you have oily T-Zone, do try rice powder.

Banana Powder:

Even a famous celebrity like Kim Kardashian has this in her ‘makeup must’ list. So, what is banana powder???

Banana powder is again a lose powder but of yellow under tone. This is usually used as a corrector to correct or to hide unevenness of skin. Typically used above the concealer. You can use banana powder as a highlighter as well. This also suitable to be used all over the face post applying the foundation. Banana powder gives you a flawless, highlighted finished look.

So, this was one of the quickest post on my blog. Hope you find it interesting.

The Body Shop Almond Milk and Honey Body Lotion : Review, Swatch

Hello Beautiful,

Body lotion is something which is really essential for my dry skin, especially in winters. Usually I do get tired of same lotion so I happen to try many varieties of body lotions/ creams. I will review one by one of those which I have not reviewed on my blog yet. Meanwhile if you want to know what are on my top of the best body lotion list, check here.

So, today I am reviewing this white beauty from the brand “The Body Shop”. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I still remember the day I had bought this beauty. The moment I entered the store, I could smell this fragrance. I immediately asked the sales assistant their, about this product. She showed me this range of products and rest is history haha.

Let’s see how this product is.

Brand: The Body Shop

Range : Almond Milk and Honey

Price : 950 for 200 ml

Click the below image to shop.

Shelf Life : 3 years. Once opened 12 Months.

What does the company claims?

48 Hours light weight moisture, absorbs instantly. Instantly relives the feeling of tightness and itchiness for sensitive, dry skin. Comforts, protects and restores moisture for sensitive dry skin.

Best part : It’s cruelty free. The Body Shop has special place in my heart because of their cruelty free products and the campaign they started to stop poor animals getting harmed while making cosmetics. ๐Ÿฐ

Packing : It comes in a tube packing, with all the details of the product printed on it. The design of milk, almond and honey looks beautiful. The white tube (sorry I had bought this tube last year and if the tube doesn’t look pretty white,don’t blame me. ๐Ÿ˜‹) packing is quite hygienic as compared to tub packing. You don’t have to dip fingers to take the product out. The flip open cap is tight enough to carry this lotion without the fear of spillage. The tube contains 200 ml of the product. I can’t say that you can carry this easily in your handbag as it might take a pretty more space than any other travel sized lotions. But, it can be a good travel companion if you carry it in a travel bag.

Fragrance : It’s a very sweet and refreshing fragrance. If you love light note scents, this fragrance will win your hearts for sure.

Consistency : It’s a lotion hence it’s neither runny nor thick. Doesn’t feel oily or greasy once applied. Gets absorbed quickly.

My Take: I have normal to dry skin. Turns out really dry during winters. For which, I need a good moisturiser. This lotion claims to instantly relives the feeling of tightness and itchiness for sensitive, dry skin. Which it did. Post bath our skin screams for moisture. I did apply this lotion and as claimed it did relive the dry or itchiness.

But, I don’t really support the 48 hours of moisture thing. Because for dry skin, at the end of the day at least, you do need one more round of application of moisturiser. Even though I didn’t feel itchiness all throughout the day, but by evening my skin was dry again. So I can say 48 hours promise didn’t worked for me.

What I liked:

  • I bought this because of this lovely fragrance.Non greasy, non-runny formula.

Non greasy, non-runny formula.

    • Kept skin moisturized for good amount of time. Tube packing is hygienic.Travel friendly packing.

Tube packing is hygienic.Travel friendly packing.

Cons:

  • It claims that this is formulated for sensitive dry skin. But worked moderately on my dry skin.

  • 48 Hours moisture claim is not true for dry skinned beauties.

  • Falls slightly on the pricier side for the work it’s doing.

Will I buy it again???

Umm no. It did a moderate job on my skin. I have known some other body lotions which worked well on my dry skin with cost lesser than this.

Will I suggest this one???

It might not be a blessing for dry skin but it will work for those who doesn’t have one. If you have extremely dry skin and needs lot of moisture, you can skip this. Others can give it a try, especially the ones who love sweet fragrances and need less moisture to skin.

This Is My Experience With Hair Coloring

People give me compliments for my long hair. But, just like any other girl, I have my own hair issues and dissatisfaction. Huuh my only complaint is that they are thin. Since they are thin, I don’t really take the risk of getting a nice hair cut. Because thin and short hair ,can give a tough competition to a tail of a tiny animal.

So, just to add some fun to my hair style, I opted for a hair color an year ago. Which color?? Well, it was bright red. (Bright red for a hair color vi*gin, is a big deal) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now that my mind has fell in love with the color blue, coloring my hair blue is something which is on my mind. Before that, I want to share certain things which I experienced while I went through this hair coloring process. Which, people who got their hair colored, might or might not really share with you… ๐Ÿ˜Š

Coloring is done on clean and damp hair:

You know how pricey a hair wash can be at some salons. If you want to save some money, wash your hair on or before the day you want to get your hair colored. Make sure its non greasy or non oily.

Make sure the brand of the color is a good one:

As you might already know, cheap colors can give you a major nightmare of hair issues. Hence, make sure that the color used is of good brand.

I had asked the guy at the salon, about the brand. Even though I had heard about it, to be safe, I googled it immediately.

The color you opt might or might not suit you:

It happens because of the excitement of getting your hair colored. That too, if it’s for the first time, ahh chances are way more.

The hair dressers usually show you the catalog or list of hair colors. You can choose the colors.

Here is the important tip. Some people at the salon do suggest which color would go with your complexion. But some may not and some just for the business purpose, suggest you some out of the world colors (yes it happened with one of my friends. Her head was looking like a butterfly with so many colors.)

So, you got to be very specific:

In my case, I had confusion with honey or brown color. But the hair dresser out there suggested me bright red which he thought would suit me the most. Out of excitement I said ok. Phewww once it was done, only person I remembered was – mummy…!!!

Color is too bright when it’s fresh:

Or may be the fact that you are not used to the new hair, it might take some time to get used to the color of your own hair.

Yelling from family and friends:

Haha even though there are plenty of people who would give you tons of compliments for the color of your hair, I’m pretty sure your family and friends have something else to say.

This solely depends on the type of people around you so I don’t comment much about it. I got good amount of scolding from mommy… ๐Ÿ˜‚ No complaints. She loves her children’s hair. (Just like most of Indian moms).

It’s an amazing feeling:

No matter what people say, getting that fun factor added to your tresses makes it a good feeling. Something new, something fresh. A new look, a new you.

You got to use products which are specifically made for colored hair:

Yes, if you want to maintain the color for long, make sure you use the shampoo and conditioner which are meant to protect the color for long time.

I didn’t use those specific products. I did use normal ones. Let’s see what happened after that.

PS: I have seen people who used specific products to protect their hair. But they also went through almost same phases.

Hair fall:

No matter what color or brand you use, some hair types are not meant for chemicals. They just react and give us this nightmare called hair fall. I had faced this problem post hair coloring. I had to try out some homemade masks and stuff to keep it in control.

Hair turns into golden color:

Honestly, this fact I was totally unaware. No matter which color you opt for, the hair strands which you have colored, turns into a golden color at the end. ๐Ÿ˜’ Only thing to hide that is to color again. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Rough hair:

At one point of time, the colored part of hair becomes so rough, it just reminds you of a dish wash brush.

Haha. Hence a good moisturizing hair mask or a good oil massage is something must for your hairs.

Duration of color on your hair depends solely on you:

Yes, it depends on your hair type and the care you are taking. Mine lasted for 7-8 months. Then it started fading. Right now, they look like I have applied henna on them.

Ya, this is pretty much about different phases post a hair coloring, according to me.

Have you colored your hair??? If yes, let me know about it. Color you chose and the experience of yours.

RABF – App That Let’s You Rent A Boy Friend. Wait, What???

Hello World,

Orrr rather hello crazy world….!!!

Ahhh you must be thinking why am I calling the world crazy. Trust me, after reading the next couple of paragraphs below, you are going to utter the same.. or even more…!!!

You must have heard about companies or mobile applications that lets you rent cars, clothes etc. Which I know are for some extent necessary in some situations.
Well, the crazy news I heard recently is about the mobile application that was launched in Mumbai and Pune on 15th of August.If you are thinking about this application is for social cause as this was launched on the independence day, ummm drop that thought. Even though the app developers might think it is for a social cause, I definitely don’t think so.

This application is called as RABF. Which stands for (be ready to read and face a brain freeze…!!!) Rent A Boy Friend…!!! (Like, seriously???)

So, this app is targeted the youth(read it as girls), who are under depression or suffering due to loneliness. Through this app, you can rent a boy friend. You can take him out for lunch and spend ‘quality’ time with him..!!!

Want to know further??? Well for FYI, when you opt for renting a guy (you can read it as a boy friend), there will be some good number of psychologists. Who will test you and they will let you know whether you really need a boy friend or not. By the way, this is definitely not a free session. For consultation you got to spend 500 INR. If the doctors/psychologists say yes, then you can choose boy friend from a list of guys, according to your ‘budget’.

PS: Screenshot courtesy, play store.

Yes of course there is a budget factor dude. If the guy is not a ‘model’ type (you know what I mean), then per hour you got to pay 500 INR. If you want good looking, models as your ‘rented’ boy friend, then be ready with 2000 INR per hour. If you have ever dreamt of roaming around with a celebrity boy friend, gal you need to pay 4000-5000 INR per hour. (Just to keep you grounded, celebrity doesn’t mean, you get to roam around with Hritik Roshan.)

I hope you still there…!!! haha. I have survived after checking details on the news. I hope you did too.

Post getting to know this app, ONLY one word came to my mind – “Why???” (Same tone the way Chandler says.)

Like seriously????

This is my honest opinion:

They say, men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. Men can never understand women. Well, this seems to be an excellent example.

Why on earth, girl with depression chooses boy over money…!!! Spending money on such app, to get boy, whom you barely know. Who I can bet is not really interested in your crap. Who is ultimately earning money at the end of the day is definitely not around you for your ‘company’. He is not going to be with you like forever.

Forget about the healing, what about your safety??? Our country has been declared as the number one country when it comes to the most unsafe place for a woman. What if the hired boy friend of yours, makes you the ‘news’ on the next day’s newspaper???

I mean with the amount of money you spend ‘hiring’ these men, you can do hell lot of things gal. Feeling depressed??? Get out of your home. Go shopping (my first favorite thing to do with money when sadness try to conquer me. Ahh it’s a therapy. ), donate money to someone who is in need. Trust me, sometimes the smile you bring on their faces can make your heart smile. Help animals. Feed them. The gratefulness in their eyes can make your soul dance with happiness. Take yourself out on a good dinner. Food is magic. A good food can make your day a happier one…!!!(I don’t know who all will agree. But I know my baby sis will definitely agree. We both order good dinner, in order to end our sad days on a happier note. It totally works for both of us. ) Go out and try some adventurous sports, travel, make memories.

You tend to make wrong decisions and try anything and everything to feel better, when you are emotionally high. Depression is something sensitive and I am glad people are opening up about it. I really hope none of my beautiful readers are going through any serious emotional pain. If so, I am always there to listen. ๐Ÿ™‚

As per one of my friends, it might be a good option for some girls who are suffering from loneliness. Yes, I might not have come across such gals. But thats ok. All I can say to such girls is to learn self love. That will definitely help them in long run.

Your life, your choice. But just make sure you don’t regret your choices.

Be wise, stay safe. Love yourself. Andddd shop till you drop. Stay happy gal. Life is short to be nothing but happy…!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is What Apple Cider Vinegar Does to Your Body

Kardashians..!!! Half of the world at least knows who they are… If you don’t belong to that half, let me introduce them to you. There is this English reality show called “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”. It’s like being with them 24 X 7. Listening to ‘everything’ they talk. What do they talk??? Everything…!!! You can imagine everything a ‘modern’ family would discuss. In one sentence – you can keep your brain at rest while watching this show. Absolutely no brain required to watch this show. You know what’s the surprising part of this whole family drama is, they have earned a lot more than you must be thinking by this show. Its already 10 seasons old and all have earned millions.

Even though I am not a huge fan of theirs, I love their wardrobe and the way they experiment with their looks…
Couple of years ago all these 5 sisters have launched their personal mobile apps.. Where each one of them post their beauty, fitness secrets and details of their wardrobe. You must have read about Kylie cosmetics on my blog before. Kylie is the youngest daughter of this Kardashian family.

In one of those beauty apps of theirs, I came across this beauty drink called – apple cider vinegar (Courtesy- Instagram). Kourtney Kardashian swears that she starts her day by drinking apple cider vinegar. After making my home work about this, I have started drinking this every morning. Since I know most of the things about it now, thought of sharing it with you guys.

What is Apple Cider Vinegar???

Apple cider vinegar, also known as cider vinegar /ACV, is a type of vinegar made from cider or apple.

How does it looks and tastes like???

It has pale to medium amber color and sour in taste. IMPORTANT thing is, its highly concentrated. It’s pungent, can even irritate your eyes. So, ALWAYS dilute before you consume.

I bought mine from Amazon. Here is the link.

Health Benefits:

Weight Loss:

Yeaahhhh…!!!! I know, I know,we all wanna eat our favorite food and never wanna look fat. How about doing these little things to shoot that nasty fat ???

Studies have proven that the acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar helps in slowing down fat accumulation. Also, its proved that on consuming this our stomach feels full thus we end up eating less. There you go, you have started with your weight loss journey already…!!!

Low Cholesterol:

A research was conducted where 1st specimen was not allowed to have Apple Cider Vinegar(ACV) in his diet, whereas the other one was allowed to. At the end of the study it was found that the one who was consuming ACV had drop in cholesterol level.

dieting overweight women choice

Detoxification:

So, ACV has potassium content along with acetic acid in it. So, while the acid bind to the task of removing toxins, potassium helps in breaking up mucus and clearing lymph nodes. Thus helps in detoxification.

Cures Sinuses

As mentioned in previous point, ACV helps in clearing lymph nodes by breaking mucus. In addition to that, it also helps in clearing sinus. Also, ACV helps in preventing any sinus infection, all thanks to its antibacterial properties.

So, if you have any sinus issues, do include ACV in your diet.

Sore_Throat

Cure for Sore Throat

Since ACV has antibacterial properties, gargling ACV helps in healing sored throat.

Improves Digestion

ACV helps in keeping health of stomach in a good condition. Also, aids in digestion.

Energy Booster

Replace your energy drink with ACV. Why??? The potassium content in ACV helps in boosting the energy and making you feel good and energetic.

Controls Diabetes and lessen heartburn

Let me not go to medical terms here. But in simple sentence – apple cider vinegar lowers blood sugar level. Thus it does reduces risks of diabetes and heartburns. I didn’t ‘prove’ that, studies did. haha

Oral Health

Who doesn’t like those white pearly smile??? Brushing teeth with diluted ACV helps in whitening teeth naturally. Killing the bacteria is the bonus.

Beauty Benefits:

For Shiny Hair

Rinse your hair with a little quantity of ACV post shower. This will make your hair shiny and bouncy.

Itchy/ sunburn skin

Applying diluted ACV on sunburnt or itchy skin can heal it.

It’s a good Toner or cleanser

As it’s antibacterial, you can use diluted ACV on your face to get the most of the benefits. Along with cleaning the facial pores, ACV also helps in preventing the bacterial infections/ pimples/ breakouts. #happyyy

Deodorant

Summer is just around the corner. Uff that stinking smell of sweat. Yikes. This is due to odour causing bacteria. Applying diluted ACV on armpits can stop the bacteria from producing that nasty odour.

side-view-of-woman-plugging-her-nose

Bad Breath Go Away

Bad breath can be really embarrassing. Gargling mouth with ACV(Diluted of course) can keep bad breath away.

Smelly feet

Ewww. Just soak feet in a tub full of warm water. Don’t forget to add few drops of apple cider vinegar to kill the bacteria and making feet smell fresh.

So, my dear, are you convinced enough why you should start using apple cider vinegar in your diet???

You can drink diluted ACV directly or you can use it in your juices or salads. Cooking is not really my thing so I cant really help you out with how and where to mix this this drink with. #sorry But don’t forget to use DILUTED apple cider vinegar ONLY.

Take care reader…!!!

Umm you can keep in touch with me via Instagram, I have shared my Monday Motivation recently. You can check it here if you wish to.

Everything You Need to Know About Derma Rollers

Have you heard about the new hottest skin care trend – ‘Derma Roller’???

I will tell you allll the details about this skin care technique in this post today.

So, to start with – What is a derma roller???

article-1226193-071CEA4F000005DC-794_634x332
Derma roller is a tool with a wheel. The interesting part of this wheel is, it has 100 to 1000 micro needles on it..!!!

How does it works???

The whole idea behind the tool is, using the handle you will roll the wheel all over your face. The needles will penetrate into your skin and reach the area where collagen and elastin is produced.

How to Choose the Right Derma Roller for Your Needs???

Needle Length

This plays a significant role when it comes to ‘serving the purposes’. Different needles’ length, different the action.

Let me list the ideal length of needle for massaging face parts:
Forehead – Up to 0.75 mm
Under Eyes – Up to 0.75 mm
Cheeks – Up to 0.75 mm
Nose – Up to 1.0 mm
Nose Tip – Up to 1.5 mm
Chin – Up to 0.75 mm
Neck – Up to 0.75 mm
Upper Lips – Up to 0.75 mm

Derma rollers vs stamps

Number of Needles:

Roller with broader wheel with maximum needles can be ideal to treat larger areas like neck.

Smaller roller is recommended for face.

Length of Handle –

Depending on your comfort, you can choose the one for you.

Advantages of Using Derma Roller

 

  • As I mentioned earlier, it punchers skin cells. Thus helps in penetration of the products you use inside the cells. Which will help you get 100% benefits of the product you use.
  • You can get plumper lips by using derma roller over your lips.
  • The fact is it does damage skin cells. But that is how it works. As and when skin cell is damaged, there is production of collagen. Thus making the skin plumper and glow.

skin-resurfacing-pic

  • Using roller on wrinkles can work wonders. Collagen and elastin helps in creation of new cells and bye bye Winkles.
  • Collagen production also helps in curing the skin imperfections like – scars’ marks, sun damage, hyper pigmentation, stretch marks etc.
  • Also, massaging head with derma roller will helps in producing hair growth hormones. Thus helping in hair growth and curing baldness.

 

 

Things to Consider When You Opt for Derma Roller:

 

  • Hygiene – Do not share your roller with someone else. Always clean it before using it.
  • Roller needles with length 0.50 mm or more should not be used daily. Using it frequently will cause more harm than good. Hence using them once in 4 to 6 weeks is recommended.

derma-roller-side-effects

  • Make sure the product which you are using on your face is safe and you are not allergic to it. Because, the darma roller helps the product to get into the skin. If you are allergic, you might end up worsening the situation.
  • Do not use it on pimples. This can cause more blunders than wonders on your skin.
  • Be extra cautious while using it around your eyes. As they are the most delicate organ.
  • If you are less tolerant to pain, this is not for you. Depending on your comfort go ahead with the method.

 

Please note:

Micro-Needling-before-after-Face

At the end of the day they are needles. They puncture your skin cells. Most common and obvious thing that will happen is that the bleeding and the pain.

If you are using needles with length 0.25 mm or below, the pain is very negligible or no pain. But, 0.5 mm are happened to be painful and also effective.

Only if you think your skin need the treatment and the pain is worth, go ahead. You can Buy it from here.ย ย 

Hope you enjoyed knowing a new skin care technique today. ๐Ÿ™‚

Review of My Most Used Lip Balm

Hey,

People keep asking me, “you use lipsticks so much, don’t your lips get dry???”… Ummm more than lipsticks the air conditioner makes my lips dry. So, I always keep a lip balm handy.

Now, the obvious question… Which one???

Let me review my most used lip balm till date.

Brand : The Body Shop

Range : Born Lippie

wp-1504540295268.

Flavor : Strawberry (my favorite ๐Ÿ“)

Tint : Red

Price : 275 INR

Ingredients :

wp-1504337664532.

Availability : In the body shop outlets and online.

Packing :

Comes in semi transparent plastic box. The cartoon has this red lips design on it.

wp-1504337664715.

Sturdy box with tight lid is super handy.

What I liked about it

  • The color,the flavor was enough for me to pick this one,the first time. ๐Ÿ’‹
  • The fragrance. The yummy strawberry fragrance makes you feel like eating it. Trust me. The other day, the lip balm was lying on my table in the office. One of my colleagues picked it up out of curiosity. He opened it and he asked me about it. I said it’s my lip balm. He had thought it’s something edible sweet. Haha.๐Ÿ“ Thank God, he didn’t taste it. #sigh
  • It hydrates lips well. It keeps lips moisturized. ๐Ÿ’‹
  • Along with moisturization, the Tint and shine it adds is amazing. Lips look luscious and shiny. It’s more kind of lip gloss. ๐Ÿ’–
  • It’s vegan. Being an animal lover, I love the body shop products as its cruelty Free. ๐Ÿ‡
  • Little goes long way. Hence worth the money. ๐Ÿ’ฐ
  • Ingredients list seems safe one. ๐Ÿ’Š

What I didn’t like

  • It doesn’t do much if you have extremely dry lips. When I have very dry lips, I use the lip scrub and then apply this balm. It works that way. ๐Ÿ˜•
  • Tub packing is unhygienic. Every time I have to dip my fingers in order to take out the product and apply it on my lips. Thus there is a hygiene concern. ๐Ÿ˜•

Will I repurchase

It’s my third box. I will repurchase the same flavor. I love this color out of all other flavors. ๐Ÿ˜

Will I recommend

Yes. You will love this lip balm. I guarantee. ๐Ÿ˜‰

wp-1504337664433.

The gloss is packed in a sturdy glass tube. Design is typical Kylie’s black melting lipstick design.

In order to help differentiating the gloss from your collection, name of the shade is been printed on a sticker which is on the bottom of the gloss.

Travel friendly??
Yes it is. It takes very less space in your handbag so yes you can travel with it easily.

Applicator

wp-1504337664278.

Same as Posie and Candy K.A soft bristled brush.

Fragrance

It has Candy like sweet fragrance. Feels like eating it. haha

Color pay off

wp-1504337664122.

Color pay off is nice. But this particular shade doesn’t suit my skin tone. It some what washes me out.

Is it moisturizing

Yessssโ€ฆ Unlike some other gloss, itโ€™s super moisturizing.

Staying power

Staying power is for 2-3 hours with foodโ€ฆ!!!

The gloss does transfers and fades while having food or sipping beverage. As I said, this particular one is n*de shade. So it doesn’t add any color to your lips in particular but adds gloss. ย A very light gloss remains on lips post food intake.

 

Will I repurchase???

No. This didn’t suit my skin tone. I would love to repurchase other shades though.

Will I recommend this to you???

If you are cool toned, its a NO. If you are dusky beauty, YES you will look smooky H*t with this shade for sure. #wink

DIY Lip Mask

Hey,

I realized that I have been writing and reviewing a lot about lip products. Isn’t it???

Adding to the series, here is a Do It Yourself lip mask. Just like face mask, I’m gonna tell you how to prepare a lip mask which has been tried and tested by me.

It is believed that plump lips are sign of good health and beauty. Most of the people even under go knife to get those perfect plumper lips. But unfortunately, not all the surgical results are positive. Most of them end up getting allergic infections and reactions. All thanks to the fillers used or the surgical procedure.

Good news is, we do have some natural remedies to get healthy lips. Even though the results are not that long lasting, it’s always better to be natural than to take so many risks. Right???

So, let’s start with this easy breezy lip mask. What we need, how to prepare, how to use… Etc…

Ingredients and benefits :

  • Coconut oil

For adding moisture to lips and also for soothing effect.

  • Cinnamon powder


Cinnamon gives tingling effect when applied on lips. This results in blood circulation in lips. Thus making lips plumper. Also, cinnamon helps in lightning lips.

  • Cinnamon oil

This is most concentrated form of cinnamon. If you want mild one, skip this.

  • Peppermint Oil

This is key ingredient in most of the lip products. It gives cooling and soothing effects. Also works best on cracked lips.

How to Prepare :

Simple. Mix one spoon of each ingredient. You can add more coconut oil if you want to. Store the mask and use it whenever you want to.

How to use:

Apply it on lips for few minutes. Either scrub it off or wash with water.

Important Points:

  • Cinnamon does cause tingling effect. This is how mask works. If you can’t tolerate that, wash your lips immediately.
  • Adding cinnamon oil makes the mask more effective and more concentrated which makes more tingling effect. So absolutely up to you to decide whether to add it or no.
  • Don’t forget to apply a good moisturizer post removing mask.
  • The effectiveness depends on individual. For some results might be quick for some it might not. For some it might last longer, for some it won’t.

Do try the mask to get those Kylie Jenner lips. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’‹

L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask for Oily Skin

Hey,

L’Oreal has introduced two face masks lately. The pure clay masks…!!! I was very fascinated by the masks, the very moment I saw them on social media. I had to try them out.

wp-1503569198493.

The two clay masks address two different skin needs. So the masks which are available in Indian market are-

  1. L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Purify and Mattify

  2. L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Exfoliate and Refine Pores

If you have oily skin, go for first one. That will absorb oil and give matte look to your skin.

If you have dry skin, opt for second. That will help in exfoliation and purification if pores from within.

The combination skinned beauties can opt for multitasking. That is applying first one over oily T zone and applying second one over dried area.

I have normal to oily skin. So I picked up the first mask, ‘L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Purify and Mattify’

wp-1503569198430.

Let’s see how much it did fair to my skin.

Brand : L’Oreal Paris

Range : Pure Clay Mask

Type : Purify and Mattify

Price : 850 INR

Ingredients :

Packing :

The outer cartoon has all the details of the product you need to know.

The mask comes in a sturdy glass tub. The glass is really of good quality. I have done it’s testing. ( You know how #wink)

The glass is a bit heavy compared to its size. So it’s not that easy breezy type bottle to carry. But you don’t have to worry about spilling, as it has good quality cap and one more plastic coverage inside.

Color :

This mask is light pistachio green colored one.

Texture :

It’s creamy. But it’s neither greasy nor oily.

Fragrance :

It has strong smell of flavored clay. It might be due to the added perfume in it.

My experience with L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Purify and Mattify:

wp-1503569198357.

As written on the outer cover, I applied the mask on my face post cleansing. The fragrance was a bit empowering initially, but it was bearable. The mask had kind of cooling effect and I didn’t feel heavy when it was on.

It starts to dry after ten to fifteen minutes. After washing it off with water, I could see some visible difference. It actually left my skin clean and the oiliness was gone. It didn’t improve my skin tone or lighten the spots. Anyway that wasn’t claimed by L’Oreal too…!!

But the glow was not long lasting. The glow lasts for 3 to 4 hours for me. #sob Again, it totally depends on individual skin types. I use it two to three times in a week. It has improved my skin in terms of controlling oiliness.

Let me sum up my likes and dislikes about this purchase of mine.

Likes:

  1. Sturdy packing.

  2. Did what it claimed. Helped in controlling oiliness.

  3. Easily available over net. I purchased it from Nykaa.

  4. Little quantity is enough. So this will last quite long.

  5. Did not break me out. Did not cause any side effects like pimples or something.

wp-1503568264138.

Dislikes:

  1. Contains paraben.

  2. Glow it gives, doesn’t lasts long.

  3. Fragrance might irritate sensitive nosed gals.

Will I repurchase??

Yes.

Will I recommend??

Yes I would recommend this to oily skinned beauties. It did work on my skin. I hope it does on yours too.

Happy Masking gal…!!!

M.A.C. Cremesheen Lipstick – Pretty Boy : Review

Hey,

Here is the second of three M. A. C. Lipsticks reviews. The most of the information I had to give, I have already mentioned in first one. So, this is going to be a short one.

You know what, the shade I’m gonna review today has an interesting name – Pretty Boy. ๐Ÿ˜‰ let’s see whether this boy was pretty enough to impress me. ๐Ÿ˜€

As I had mentioned in the review of first lipstick, I have bought these from nykaa. The packing was similar to that of chatterbox shade. You can check the photos of nykaa luxe packing here.

Brand : M. A. C.

Range: Cremesheen

Shade name : Pretty Boy

Shade:

Peachy red. Those who are not comfortable wearing red lipstick, this is a cool shade. It has shimmery texture which gives kind of plump look to lips. Can be carried by any.

Refer the indoor and outdoor pictures of lipstick swatches.

Price : 1500 INR

Ingredients :

Shelf life : 18 months

Packing :

The outer cover and the lipstick bullet have the name of the shade printed on them. Helpful for easy pick of right color.

Lipstick comes in black bullet packing. It looks something like this.

Texture :

Creamy soft texture is super moisturizing. Plus, it has sparkles in it. Perfect for a party look.

Staying power :

Shine does fade with food and drink intake as it transfers a lot. But tint remains for 3-4 hours. Which is quite less for a mac lipstick. #sob

Will I buy this again???

M. A. C. Has plenty of shades to offer. I will try some other color.

Will I recommend???

I will recommend this if you are looking for super moisturizing, cooler red shade M. A. C. lipstick.

Nykaa Matte Nail Lacquer – Blueberry Frosting – Review

Hey,

Monday is here… Agrhhh…

Have you ever wondered, your hands are something which people notice when you meet and greet them. So, taking good care of hands and nails should be in our ‘Check List’. Don’t you think so??

You can check hand and nail care posts here.

Today, I’m gonna review the nail paint which is on my nails, right now. This one is from the brand Nykaa. The online shopping site Nykaa, has come up with their own range of cosmetics. I haven’t tried my hands on their cosmetics yet. But, I own some Nykaa nail paints from their huge collection of nail paints. Let me start with my favorite of them all.

Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel – Blueberry Frosting.

Read on if it’s worth buying.

Brand : Nykaa

Range : Matte

Shade name : Blueberry Frosting

Shade : light purple

Price : 179 INR (Depends on shade)

Shelf life : 23 months

Packing :

Comes in transparent but matte effect glass bottle. To give that matte feel in terms of packing as well. The glass is sturdy, I have tested it by dropping it multiple times. #accidently But, be gentle with cap. I have broken it already. #sad

Applicator :

Applicator brush is soft and of good quality.

Texture :

This is a matte finish one. That means no glossy or shining effects.

My experience :

I must say I’m bit lazy when it comes to nail Polish application. I can apply them but I can’t sit ideal till it gets dry. I always, always end up with messy nail paint. At least on one nail. #Atleast

But, this one has been made just for me. #TheOne Because, it dries up so quickly…!!! By the time you finish applying nail paint for fifth finger first finger’s nail is all dry and ready. Now that’s something I loved about this. You don’t have to sit like a doll waiting for nails to dry. #happydance

Special note: Since it dries quickly, better be quick to clean up the extra ones applied outside your nails, for a neat finish.

You might feel that the price is high for a nail paint. Even I had thought so #confession. But, the finishing it gives will make you forget the money you have spent. I felt it’s worth the money.

Plus – I got lot of complements for the color and finish from my friends and colleagues. #BlushBlush

PS: if you are wondering – why this shade… I love trying out different shades on my nails. Some uncommon colors. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I was wickedly famous for trying out ‘out of the world’ nail colors. #memories

Will I repurchase???

Even though I loved this shade, there are multiple shades in this range. Would love to try different shades.

Will I recommend???

Yes. I have already done that to some of my friends. They are very happy with the purchase. You too try these matte nail paints. ๐Ÿ’…

You can buy it from here.

M. A. C. Cremesheen Lipstick – Chatterbox : Review

Hey,

As I had announced couple of days ago, here is one of the three reviews.

Out of the three M.A.C. Cremesheen Lipsticks, the first lipstick I’m reviewing is shade named ‘Chatterbox’.

Let me start with the box I received from Nykaa. Their Luxe box looks something like this.

Inside it, there is this cute pink bubble pack.

 

 

I liked what’s written on it. #cute I say.

wp-1503222258059.

Let’s know my experience with it.

Brand : M. A. C.

Range : Cremesheen

Shade name : Chatterbox

Price : 1500 INR (I bought it in an offer. Buy two get one free)

Ingredients :

wp-1503222257939.

Packing :

The outer cartoon has the name and ingredients printed on it. The lipstick comes in black bullet with brand name printed on it.

wp-1503222257288.

Bottom of both outer cartoon and bullet has the name of the shade. This helps in differentiating the shades and closing the right one from your collection.

Travel friendliness:

Yes. The lipstick bullet is sturdy and tiny.

Check for yourself here.

Shade:

This one is bright pink. It does have shine. Perfect for gloomy days… !

 

 

 

Texture :

Creamy soft.

Fragrance :

Smells like a sweet candy. #Yumm

Moisturizing :

Yes. Totally. It never dried my lips and didn’t feel a need of lip balm.

wp-1503222423653.

Is it transferable?

Yes. It transfers a lot. May be because of its creamy texture.

Staying power :

It stayed for 5-6 hours with food. The shine fades as it gets transferred to cup as and when you sip a drink and to spoon as and when you eat. But the color still remains for 5-6 hours.

wp-1503222423726.

Will I repurchase?

Na. I will try a peach shade.

Will I recommend?

Yep. If you are looking for moisturizing bright pink lipstick, do pick this one.

Mygirlypedia rating : 4/5 ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹

I will review two more shades soon.
