Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick: Thrilling Pink Review

Hello,

My love for lipsticks started with Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick range. I was at Colorbar counter and the lady at the counter showed me the Colorbar Velvet Matte lipstick, this was about 3 years back. The very first shade which I bought was peach crush, a beautiful pink peach lipstick and I fell for this lipstick in first swatch. Subsequently when I used this lipstick, I loved its formula and color pay off. Since then I almost have bought around 10 shades from the Colorbar Velvet Matte lipsticks range.  The shade Thrilling Pink which I am reviewing today was gifted to me by my friends.

Lakme Absolute Sculpt Matte Lipstick : Peach Pout Review

Hello all,

Lakme Absolute Sculpt Matte Lipstick range is something which I always wanted to try, but was not buying them for their price i.e. Rs 700. Actually I personally feel that spending anything more than Rs 500 on lipstick is dearer. I am an avid lipstick lover but I still think lipstick or any lip product more than Rs 500-600 is not worth it. While going through sale on Nykaa.com I saw Lakme products on sale and I bought the lipstick peach pout from this range.

Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Makeup Remover Review

Hi friends,

As much as I love applying makeup, I also understand the importance of cleaning the makeup properly. Also, especially in summers, when we opt for mostly water and sweat proof makeup, removing them with water is just not enough. Currently I am using FabIndia makeup remover for removing my day to day makeup. The FabIndia makeup remover cannot remove lip and eyes makeup effectively. As I got the Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Make Remover in Maybelline Colossal eye kit, I used this product and was impressed by it. Do check out the eye kit review :

L’Oreal Professionnel Absolut Repair Cellular Shampoo and Absolut Repair Cellular Lactic Acid Hair Masque Review

Hey Everyone,
In my teenage my hairs were very soft and shiny with any ordinary shampoo and hair oil. But when I came to Mumbai my hair started to get frizzy and drying. I had no clue whether it was the climate or my eating habits which led to the bad condition of my hairs. Since past 3 years I had been using Tressme Shampoo and Conditioner on my hair and also I have improved my eating habits. The changes in diet and shampoo have shown great improvement in the texture and frizziness. 
Off late I felt that my hair ends are again becoming dry, lifeless and frizzy. Hence I thought I should try other shampoo and I bought the L’Oreal Professionnel Absolut Repair Cellular Shampoo and Absolut Repair Cellular Lactic Acid Hair Masque Review.  I have used the products only once on my hairs. So let’s start the review:

Miss Claire Waterproof perfection Lip Color: Shade No 60 Review

Hello Everyone,

I have heard and read great reviews about Miss Claire Matte Lip creams and after using, I am in love with them. The performance of Miss Claire Matte Lip creams has led me to buy their other products also.  Recently I went to the beauty shop near my place and found the Miss Claire Waterproof perfection lip color lipsticks. The lipstick was a combination of lip color at one end and lip-gloss and other end. As there was no tester available I picked the shade no 60 just randomly. So let’s get into the review.

Maybelline New York Fit Me Pressed Powder Review: Shade 310 Sun Beige

Hello Everybody,

You know during my childhood I use to watch how my mom gets ready and I use to imitate her in afternoon when she sleeps. I have always seen my mom using Lakme products for makeup like lipsticks, kajal and face powder. I think that shows that how much Lakme was a very homely brand in 90’s. But nowadays I think that place in current market is taken by Maybelline.
Maybelline is innovating so fast in launching new products and that too budget friendly into the market. Now, even I have moved on from Lakme to Maybelline for my makeup needs like lipsticks, kajal, foundation, compact, blush and the list goes on. Maybelline launched their Fit me range this year and as I was out of my foundation and powder, I thought let’s try this range. 

I bought the Maybelline Fit me foundation, concealer and powder from Nykaa.com. Actually when these were launched on Nykaa.com, the website had a unique way of selecting the shade. Firstly you have to select your complexion and then the site will give you all the shades of foundation, concealer, powder and blush. So, I really liked the selection method. I bought the foundation, concealer and powder as suggested by website.

So let’s start the review:

Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream: Shade No 11 Review

Hello Everyone,

Out of all the makeup products I use , Lipsticks has topped my list. Ever since I have started enjoying make-up, I find lipsticks are the ones which are enough to give a little jazz and color on to the face. Mostly I like matte lipsticks as I find they are more opaque on lips, covering the lip pigmentation better than shiny and glossy lipsticks. Hence my love for matte lipsticks took me to Miss Claire soft matte lip cream. I have read and heard very good things about these lippies and hence wanted to try one of these. It was very difficult for me to find them in stores as well as online, but one fine day I found it in a beauty shop near me and I grabbed it.

Khadi Herbal Hair Color Black Review

Hi Everybody,

Hair graying is the most common problem faced by all these days. My hairs also started graying at very early age....  I think maximum people suffering from this problem, tackle it with Heena. My mother uses Heena and hair dye occasionally for the covering the grey. But I was very skeptical about the use of the Hair dyes and Hair colours which contains loads of ammonia and other chemicals, which one can smell has soon as their packets are open. Hence Heena was the only option left for me, but i didn’t want that orangish reddish colour on my hairs after using heena, coz I dislike that colour. So, I was looking for a herbal heena option which can make my grey hair black. And during my search operation on internet I found this Product online on Amazon.in :

Maybelline Colossal Super Black Kajal Review


Hi friends,
Kajal is a very important element of my daily makeup needs and i think for most of us also. I think that simple kajal application in eyes can enhance any look. The love for kajals was inculcated in me by my mom as she use to ask me apply it daily for some good medicinal properties. Since then I swear by kajal's and use them almost everyday. Today I am reviewing the new launched Maybelline Colossal Super Black Kajal which i purchased from Nykaa.com.
