If there is one Indian brand that makes excellent lip balms, it has to be Organic Harvest. With winter at its peak across India, lip balms are absolute saviours for me, and I have stocked up on a number of different variants. I have already reviewed the Organic Harvest Happy Lips lip balm in the Pomegranate variant on the blog, but in case you missed that, here is my review of the Happy Lips Green Tea and Lemon Oil variants from Organic Harvest.
Micellar waters have made it big in India and how! While a few months back we all rejoiced the launch of BioDerma in India, we now have a ton of options from drugstore brands readily available online and in stores too. The latest brand to jump on the micellar water bandwagon is Nivea, a brand that is known and trusted by most Indian households for creating gentle and nourishing skincare. Nivea has launched two variants of micellar water in India, a rose water one and an O2 variant. I have tested out the blue O2 variant and here is what I think about this new micellar water on the block.
Be it summer or winter, my skin always needs its drink of vitamin C to emanate that healthy glow. Vitamin C not only adds radiance to the skin but also helps fade pigmentation, which is much needed by someone like me with blemish prone skin. Over the past month, I have been using the Vaunt Vitamin C Water as a part of my PM skincare routine and here is what I think of the product!

Face mists seem like a simple skincare product, it’s just water in a bottle right? Actually, no, not only can a good face mist hydrate the face, it can also shrink your pores and improve the overall health of your skin. Vaunt Skincare is a new skincare brand that emphasizes on clean and effective ingredients to restore the natural beauty of the skin. Here is how the Vaunt Watermelon and Seaweed Face Mist fared for me.
The Vaunt Watermelon and Seaweed Face Mist contains the freshness of watermelon, the anti-oxidant properties of seaweed and the healing properties of grape seed and witch hazel. It has a refreshing citrusy scent and provides an instant boost of hydration to the skin and wakes it up in the morning or at the end of a tiring day. It can be used for freshening up the skin as a face mist and can also be used as a toner to shrink the pores or as a makeup setting spray.
This product is extremely nourishing and gentle and will suit even those with sensitive skin. Another great thing about this product is its fantastic spray nozzle which provides a fine and even mist of product to the face. It makes using this face mist an absolute pleasure and my skin loves this as much as I do.
Overall, this product is helping my skin a lot in soldiering through the cold and dry weather by providing some much-needed moisture and glow to my face and its unclogging properties have helped in controlling my breakouts too. If you are in the market for a mild, refreshing, and effective face mist then you must pick up this gem from Vaunt Skincare. Priced at INR 575 for a 100ml bottle, it will be gentle on your pocket too!

A lot of people go through the effort of creating fresh onion pulp every week and applying it to their hair. Unfortunately, I am not much of a DIY gal and my eyes are extremely sensitive to the pungency of onions, which is why the Skin Salad Onion Oil came as a boon for me. Here is why I love this product so much!
I am a die-hard fan of the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation, which is why I grabbed the Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hr Full Coverage Foundation as well as soon as it launched on Nykaa.com. The Maybelline Super Stay Foundation claims to be a matte, full coverage foundation that does not budge for 24 hours. Read on to find out if this product lived up to its claims on my face!

Read on to find out if this product worked wonders on my hair or not!
Hello Girls 🙂 I know we all love our nude lipsticks but at times you want to go bold. Fall and winter are the seasons to wear a gorgeous deep shade like this one. The Maybelline loaded bold lipsticks were launched sometime back but it is never too late to indulge in a unique and flattering shade of lipstick.
While summers are all about bright pinks, oranges and all sorts of popsicle hues, winters are about rich plums, cherry reds, berry pinks, and burgundy. What I am saying is that you must have at least one such shade in your collection. So let’s get down to the review of this fabulous lipstick, shall we?Read More »
I have always been an avid fan of sarees and am always looking for an excuse or occasion to wear one of the sarees from my wedding trousseau. The problem is that since all the sarees that I bought during my wedding are on the heavier side, they are not suitable for daily wear. For me to able to slip into a saree on a regular day, it has to be extremely light-weight and easy to drape. The Made in Heaven Mul Cotton Sarees from Suta Bombay fit the bill perfectly – here is why!

I’m Sohini, a budding blogger, youtuber as well as an influencer. I’m into this thing since last year and Mrinalini is one of the first few bloggers whom I followed on WordPress as well as on Instagram and writing for LipstickforLunch is a great opportunity for me.
So for my first guest post for this blog, I would like to share my experience with a new and innovative product I recently used- the generic version of the original makeup eraser. I got this from the brand Stay Quirky. It’s called their Wipe Out Makeup Remover.
