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!
With Nykaa bringing new international brands to India every week, it gets a little hard to keep up with all the new products that are up for grabs. One of the recent brands that have jumped on Nykaa’s bandwagon is Aveda, and their Invati Advanced Thickening Hair Conditioner caught my attention instantly. 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.
I have switched up my skincare quite a bit recently to adapt to the cold weather. An updated skincare routine post was therefore overdue! So here is how I am pampering my skin on winter mornings and nights to keep it soft and glowy until the summer sun shines again!
AM Skincare Routine –
My AM routine starts with washing my face with The Face Shop Dr. Belmeur’s Daily Repair Foam Cleanser. This face wash gently cleanses the skin without stripping it dry and is perfect for the cold and dry weather. I am usually in a massive rush in the mornings, so I skip toner (guilty!) and directly go in with my Magic Dust Vitamin E Face Serum which makes the skin super soft and hydrated without feeling heavy at all. I then go in with a generous layer of the Tvakh Triple Protection Sunscreen, a lightweight and hydrating sunscreen that is a staple for me throughout the year because it doubles up as a moisturizer too. For my under eye area, I use the Mama Earth Eye Cream because it is super hydrating and affordable. I slap on my Organic Harvest Happy Lips Lip Balm and I am done with my skincare! While applying my makeup, I am currently enjoying mixing some rosehip oil with my foundation because it prevents my makeup from clinging to the dry patches and provides a beautiful sheen to the face. Rosehip oil is a great facial oil for me because it somehow reduces my acne and hydrates the skin without making it greasy, therefore being a perfect final touch to my AM skincare.
PM Skincare Routine –
Evenings are when I tend to pamper my skin a little bit more because I have a little more time and because skincare helps get rid of the fatigue of the day. I remove my makeup with the Garnier Micellar Bi-Phase Water and then cleanse my face with the Dr. Belmeur Face Wash. I then use the Tvakh Vitamin C toner and apply my Magic Dust Serum. I then apply a very generous layer of the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel and my Mama Earth Eye Cream and Organic Harvest lip balm and am ready for some much-needed sleep! On alternate days, I use the Vya Naturals Rose Water as toner and add the Dr. Sheths Daily Peel to my PM skincare regimen. On the days when my skin is suffering from breakouts, I add the Skin Salad Charcoal Mask to my PM regimen, and if my skin is feeling dehydrated then I use a Dear Packer Home Remedy Sheet Mask after my serum.
Overall, this skincare routine has been working fairly well for my skin at this point of time and these products are the ones that I can recommend without batting an eyelid. If you have acne-prone, combination but dehydrated skin like mine then you can try out this skincare routine and let me know how it works for you! I would love to hear your take on these products and your go-to skincare routine at the moment 🙂
