Have you heard about Cookie Crumble Nail Paints

Hey,

How’s weekend treating you??? Rain has taken a break right now, here in Pune. But soon it will start pouring again.

I am having a Lazy day… But, I have to go out for a dinner tonight. I just did my nails. I do a lot of nail arts but today, I have no mood and time to do fine nail art. So I’m going with some time saving nail paints I bought recently. But, a bit confused with which one to apply. Can you help me out???

Let me show you the two options from my recent purchase from Nykaa. You guys do let me know which one should I wear tonight.

Nykaa has come up with new range of nail paints named – Nykaa Cookie Crumble Nail Enamel. #NiceName

There are 7 shades available. Every shade is named after some flavored cookies. #yummy

So as nykaa says, it’s like instant nail art. Every nail paint has black pigments in it. It adds that fun quotient. Feels like you have crushed cookies on your nail tip…!!!

The two shades which I have bought are :

  • Cherry Crunch

Shade Number 190

I’m huge lover of cherries. While everyone is having fun applying cakes to one another during birthday celebrations, I make sure nobody wastes the cherries. Surprisingly the shade is not cherry red. It’s pale pink one. With black pigments.

You can buy it from here.

  • Strawberry Crinkle

Shade number 194

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…!!!

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. 😉 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. 💅

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 💋💋💋💋

I will review two more shades soon.

A Lazy Girl’s Guide to Beauty 

Hey,

I spend ample amount of time taking care of skin… I am kind of obsessed. I love doing it. After all self love is must. Isn’t it???

There are many of my friends who wants to improve the skin texture but too lazy to do all the rituals. No worries. Today I am gonna share some super lazy tips which you can afford to do,  to achieve good skin.

Read on,  if you are one among those pandas.

  • Cleansing

I know it’s not your type to go and look for a cleanser for your skin type and blah blah blah. So all you need to do is, keep wet wipes next to your bed. Just pull one out and clean your face before sleeping. Removing impurities /dust/makeup is a must.

  • Moisturizer

Na I won’t bother you by explaining toner and stuff. Just apply a layer of good moisturizer before ending your day. No matter what skin type you are blessed with, a good moisturizer is a must.

  • Hydration

You must have heard a lot that we need to drink lots of water. Yes we need to. This will keep body mind and Skin healthy.

  • Vitamins

If you are too lazy to follow good diet or beauty steps, consume vitamin supplements. But yes, you have to take an extra effort to meet a good doctor before consuming.

  • Lip care

I know lip scrub or primer are not in your world. Haha but we need to scrub lips to get rid of those chapped surface. Ummm how will I do it??? Simple.. Just gently brush your lips after brushing your teeth with the help of toothbrush.

  • Makeup

Foundation concealer etc might sound like rocket science for some girls.  So I will tell you simpler makeup tips.

  • Eyes

Kajal..!!!  A stroke of Kajal we need to conquer the world. If you want to know how much kajal means to us, check this. 

  • Smudged Kajal Look 

Apply kajal before going to bed. You will have naturally smudged eye makeup look the next morning.  But avoid doing it everyday. As sleeping with eye makeup on is not recommended on daily basis.

  • Lips

Apply a good lipstick or a tinted lip balm. You are good to go.

  • Face

If you are a dry skinned beauty, dab some moisturizer before applying a day cream. If cream has SPA/SPF content, it’s added benefit.

  • Lazy to apply body lotion? 

Drop few drops of essential oils to the bathing water. This will take care of body moisture after bath.

  • Hair wash!!! 

Too lazy to wash hair???  No worries…  Dry shampoos are your Angeles.

  • Hair style 

Tie hair in a bunch before hitting the bed. You will wake up with nice wavy hair in the morning.

  • Excess sweat

Keep tissue papers handy. You don’t have to go shopping for product to solve this problem. Just pat a tissue paper on your oily zone and and you are good to go as the tissue absorbs all the sweat.

I hope these tips will transform you from

“This gal is pretty lazy”

To

“This lazy gal is pretty ”

Its about Concealers…!!!

Hey Sweetie pies,

I am so refreshed after the awesome weekend I had. Do you want to know what I did last weekend??? I had been to trekking at ‘Visapur Fort’ and visited ‘Bhaja Caves on Saturday. The scenic beauty, rain, the company of some great friends and the amazing historical caves refreshed my soul.

Last evening, I had been to MAC store (it’s like a holy place for us, the makeup addicts/shopaholics). Bought an eyeliner, which I will review soon.

I must say; as much as I enjoyed my weekend, I missed blogging here at my girlypedia. In order to cover up for the last two days, I am writing this post about ‘flaw covering’ makeup product – ‘Concealer’.

 

So, what is concealer?

Concealer/color corrector, used to mask dark circles, age spots, large pores, and other small blemishes visible on the skin.

 

Why concealer???

Like I said before, it is used to hide flaws and achieve flawless finish.

 

When to use concealer?

Concealer is usually used after primer, before/after foundation. But I would suggest you to use it before foundation to get smoother and flawless result.

images

On which part of face do we need to apply concealer??

  • If you want to even out whole skin tone of face, you can apply it all over face. Make sure you choose same shade as that of your natural skin tone.
  • Else, you can apply under eyes, on blemishes, on uneven patches, around mouth (if you have darker skin around mouth), pimples etc.

 

What are the differences between foundation and concealer?

  • This is similar to foundation but it is thicker which helps in better coverage.
  • Foundation is applied on large area of face. Concealer is used on under eyes, on pimple scars and on other types of flaws on face.

 

Can we use only concealer on face??

Yes you can. You can also use lose powder to get clearer look.

Revlon-2013-Colorstay-24-Hours-Foundation-Concealer-Promo1

Do we get concealers in different shades???

Good news is yes…!!! There are multiple choices when it comes to shades available for concealers.

  • I would suggest you to choose a concealer of shade one or two lighter than your skin tone for hiding dark spots. The reason behind this is, when you apply concealer of lighter shade on the darker spots like pimple scars, will even out skin tone…!!!
  • You can pick a concealer similar to your skin tone if you just want to hide or blur minor imperfections.

 

Are there any different forms of concealer???

Yes… There are multiple liquid and solid/ cream form of concealers.

 

What are the types of concealers???

  • Yellow Concealers:

This is safest type of concealers when you think of experimenting. This is used to even out skin tone. It vanishes the uneven skin tone.

2423881

  • Pink concealers:

This is a savior for those beauties who have dark blue or purplish areas on face caused by pimples, broken veins, or rosacea. If the under eye area is darker, this concealer can be used.

P

  • Green Concealers:

This is used to neutralize red zones on your face. By red zone I mean, blemishes, acne, red spots. But it is recommended not to use it on dark spots and under eye circles.

Make-Up-For-Ever-Camouflage-Cream-Pot-No.-17-Green

Big question – How to apply concealer???

  • Apply primer to minimize the pores.
  • Choose a concealer of lighter shade.
  • Put few drops of concealer under your eyes. Using a makeup sponge, gently blot the concealer into your skin. (You can also use your fingers to pat and blend the concealer)
  • Apply foundation of the shade similar to your skin shade.
  • Blend it to get flawless look.

 

How to avoid looking caked up??

You need to prepare your skin before applying concealer, in order to avoid looking caked up. Apply primer/ moisturize face before concealer.

So, these are the questions popped into my mind about concealers. If you want to know anything more about this magical product, do let me know. Love to help you. Angel smile

Today I will be sharing the info I had got, with you…

Everything has +ve and -ve side.

Best part of Permanent makeup:

  1. Saves time.
  2. Doesn’t fade due to humidity and other weather conditions.
  3. No need to invest on makeup removers.
  4. Saves money which we spend to buy different makeup products.

The side effects that might be caused due to the permanent makeup:

  1. The chemical/ pigments involved might cause your lips to swell.
  2. Eyebrow after effect
  3. The skin around eye is very sensitive and delicate. The anesthesia given around eye might burn cornea.
  4. The eyeliner drawn might cause bruises.
  5. The artificial blush/ eye shadow application done as a part of permanent makeup might cause skin irritation. The pigments, if doesn’t suit your skin, it will affect large area of your face. This will have to be corrected with face surgery.
  6. These are cosmetic tattoos. If the needles used are not hygienic, it might cause harmful diseases.
  7. Pigments may cause allergic reactions to certain people.
  8. Make sure you choose someone well expertise in these procedures. Or else you might end up being a disaster…!!!
  9. I personally feel, after some time we might get bored of same makeup. I am someone who love experimenting different eye makeups. It might look good all day long but it will be boring to carry same makeup every single day.
  10. Undergoing MRI scan might become a headache. Its advisable to let your MRI technician to know about your permanent cosmetic in order to avoid  skin irritations.

permanent-makeup-vorher_nachher

There are plenty of women who opt for permanent makeup. If you really really feel you need this, if you are ready to undergo all these procedures, if you are ready taking risks, then only get this cosmetic make over done by an expert.

I would personally advice you to be happy in your own skin. Be happy with what you are blessed with. You are pretty, the way you are…!!!

Take care pretty…

FabIndia Intensive Hand Cream lemon… Fab or na…!!!

Hey beautiful,

You must be enjoying a great relaxing weekend. Make sure to relax your soul along with your body today…!!! It is much more important.

By the word ‘relaxing’, I remembered a hand cream which is very relaxing and refreshing for my hands. Read on, to know more about the cream in detail.

It is one of the best hand creams I have used till date. As I had mentioned in my last post about ‘Hand care’, hand cream is a must when you want to keep your hand happy…!!!

This a fab India product, named ‘Intensive hand cream’ in lemon flavor.

IMG_20160618_144250

Let’s start with the review…

What it claims:

An intensive, non greasy formulation that combines natural extracts with essential oils. While lemon lightens the skin, glycerin softens it. Regular application ensures your hands remain supple and smooth.

Ingredients:

IMG_20160618_144307

Price: 290 INR for 120 ml (112g)

Shelf life: 3 years

Packing:

This hand cream comes in a yellow tube packing. The white cap is flip flop one. I always prefer tube packing over a tub one. Tube packing is more hygienic, as there is no need to dip your hand in cream unlike for the tub pack.

It is sturdy and does not take more space in your hand bag. Hence, I can say it is travel friendly.

IMG_20160618_144407

Cream’s texture:

The white cream is non greasy and glides easily. It does keep your hand moisturized but doesn’t feel oily.  Little goes long way so value for money as well.

IMG_20160618_202029

Fragrance:

It has a strong smell of lemon. This might be a con for those who doesn’t like strong fragrance.

Staying Power:

It keeps your hand soft for 3-4 hours. . I prefer using this after whenever I wash hands.

Availability:

It is available in all FabIndia stores and over online.

Does this stands to what it claims?:

Non greasy:  YES. This is non greasy.

Intensive: YES. This is moisturising.

Lightens skin tone: NO. I haven’t found this one true.

Softens hands: YES. It softens very dry hands too.

My overall experience:

As I had mentioned in my earlier post, most of the time I spend in AC environment. That makes skin and hair dry. sob sob But, this hand cream is one of the essential stuffs I carry in my hand bag. Anywhere and everywhere. I will surely buy this again.

Pros:

  1. Non greasy.
  2. Very moisturizing.
  3. Available in fabIndia stores and online.
  4. Affordable
  5. Value for money.
  6. Cruelty free. Not tested on animals.

Cons:

  1. Does not lighten skin tone.
  2. Strong lemon fragrance might be a problem for those with sensitive nose.
  3. Contains paraben.

Do I recommend the fabIndia intensive hand cream?

YES. If your hands are really dry and looking for a good hand cream, this is the one for you.

 

Will I repurchase the fabIndia intensive hand cream?

Of course dearie…!!! My hands are thankful for this pick. wink

Tips to Keep Your Hands Soft…

Hey you beautiful,

How is  the weekend treating you.??? I am enjoying my lazy relaxing ‘Me time’…!!! wink

Have you ever thought; when you meet and greet someone, you either shake your hand, wave your hand or do a namaste. So, technically after your face, your hands are the most noticeable part. Since they are notable, it is always a good idea to keep them soft and clean. This post is all about the tips to keep your hands soft and presentable.

dd496a5ca8908327bb1b4a3a6eaab376--aishwarya-abhishek-amitabh-bachchan

Why our hands need a good care.

  1. Hands, being one of the most important part of our body, get exposed more to weather, water etc
  2. They tend to get dry and rough with bad weather or in the AC environment.
  3. Since we wash our hands most of the time, the PH imbalance also causes dry hands.
  4. The harsh soaps and chemicals also have there part in making our hands lose their softness.

How to take care of your hands at home.

1. Exfoliate your hands.

You can find many hand scrubs at store / online. You can also prepare one at home using kitchen ingredients. Some of them are here for you.smile

a. Sugar and honey scrub:

Take honey in a bowl and pour sugar into it to make a paste. Scrub your hand using this paste.
Sugar removes the dead/ dry skin. Whereas honey moisturizes the skin.
b. Coffee powder and oil scrub:
Mix both the ingredients in a bowl.(You can use any edible oil) Apply the paste on your hands and exfoliate them. Coffee exfoliates and gives glow to hands. Oil adds moisture.

c. Salt and lemon juice scrub:
Apply the paste prepared by mixing the ingredients on your hands. Scrub them. Salt removes the dryness and lemon gives a bleaching/ lightning effect.

IMG_9210

 

2. Give a good massage to your hands:
Ingredients required:
lemon juice
glycerin
rose water
Massage your hands and cuticles with this mixture for at least 10-15 minutes.

3. Apply good hand cream:
There are very nice hand creams available in India. My personal favorite is

Fabindia Lemon Intensive Hand Cream. You can buy it from nykaa.com

o-HAND-CREAM-FP-facebook

4. Take care of your nails:

a. Always , always keep your nails clean.
b. Girls, chipped nail paints are a big No No. You can fix them by applying a new quote of same or of different colored nail paint over it. Or you can remove them using a good nail paint remover.
c. Keep your nail short. When the nails are long, they tend to break easily.
d. Get a good manicure treatment once a month.

About manicure:

Its a beauty treatment for hands and nails. You can choose a good saloon to get this done or you can give yourself a good manicure at home. You can buy a good manicure kit online. This link might be useful for you.

v2.i784919.w688.h458.x11F61EC5

In a manicure treatment, the hands are cleaned, a good massage is given, nails are filed and nail polish will be applied of your choice.(ahh sounds so relaxing right…!!! )

There are 20+ types of manicures you can choose from. Book a good manicure pedicure(for foot) appointment over the weekend. One of the best way to relax.

5. Always apply sunscreen on your hands.
Sun rays increases the aging process. Apply a layer of sunscreen to your hands to keep them protected from harsh sun rays.

6. Try to use mild soaps and hand washes.

The dish wash bars have chemicals which harsh on skin. Hence it is recommended to wear gloves. If not, apply a good hand cream after you are done washing.

7. Wear hand gloves while washing the vessels.

8. Apply cuticle oil/ any essential oil on your cuticle. It makes nails strong and boosts the growth.

Follow these tips to keep your hands young and beautiful…

Have a great weekend pretty…

Keep smiling…
