Since most of us in India do not have bathtubs to whip up a lavish bubble bath, a beautiful handmade soap is what we can resort to for a luxurious bath experience. I was recently sent some wonderful handmade soaps by The Soap Factory, a brand known for its natural, eco-friendly, and handcrafted skincare. Read on to find out my thoughts on these soaps which are honestly so pretty that I almost felt guilty using them!
Have I ever used a mascara that is not from Maybelline? Possibly not, and as luck may have it, I recently received yet another Maybelline mascara as a giveaway prize and I am not complaining! Today I will be reviewing the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in the shade Blackest Black for all of you. Read on to find out my thoughts on this product.
90’s kids, do you remember the khas grass that our parents used to attach to the walls of our air coolers in the summer months? That is what Vetiver grass is, and as unglamorous as it may sound, vetiver water carries a bunch of skincare benefits. A number of skincare brands in India have recently launched Vetiver Water face mists, and I recently got my hands on the Kamaakshi Botanicals Vetiver Water Face and Body Mist in a subscription box that reached my doorstep right before a heat wave engulfed my city. Here are my thoughts on this product after testing it out in 40+ degrees Celsius weather.
The Nivea Milk Delights Face Washes were recently launched by the brand with much pomp and show aka advertising campaigns. This range of face washes addresses a variety of different skin types and claims to combine the goodness of milk with other age-old natural skin-loving ingredients. I was curious to find out what the buzz was all about and thought that some of you might be interested in a review because these face washes are fairly affordable yet claim to have a bunch of benefits. Read on to find out my thoughts on the Nivea Milk Delights Face Wash in the Moisturizing Honey variant which is meant for dry skin.
Another day, another foundation review. I am going on a foundation no-buy after reviewing this one, I promise (at least until there is a fascinating new foundation launch)! Coming to the agenda of the day, today I will be reviewing the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation, a serum foundation that many in the beauty community swear by. I recently purchased it during the Nykaa Hot Pink Sale when it was available at a decent discount and have been testing it out ever since. So without further ado, here are my thoughts on this foundation.
If you are a returning reader of my blog, you may know that I am head over heels in love with the WiseShe makeup brushes and own all the brushes released by the brand. This Indie brand by blogger Anamika Sureka has also launched falsies, sponge blenders, and an eyelash curler recently, and while I was tempted to try out their sponge blenders, I hesitated because I am more of a makeup brush kinda person. All the products from the brand were recently on sale on Amazon, and I finally picked up their Tear Cut Precise Blender. Here are my thoughts on this product.
The ZoBox is the only subscription service that I have stuck to since it first started out, because I love the curation of products and honestly feel that they provide great value for money. This month’s ZoBox is a women special edition and provides 5 products that every woman would love, at a super affordable price of INR 499. Read on to find out what I received in this month’s box.
Despite so many brands talking about shade inclusivity when it comes to foundations and concealers, it is still hard to find a contouring product in India that shows up on medium to deep Indian skin tones. Some of the bronzers which I have used in the past, which are actually deep enough for Indian skin tones include those from Sugar Cosmetics and Makeup Revolution, but I was excited to try something new this time. The Amazon summer sale came in at the right moment, and the Wet n Wild Magaglo contouring palette that was available at a heavily discounted price caught my eye instantly. Here is my review of this product in the shade Dulce de Leche.
Sugar Cosmetics recently launched their Drop The Base Serum Foundation, which as far as I know, is the first serum foundation by an Indian brand. I couldn’t help but pick up the beautiful frosted bottle filled with the golden silky liquid (yes, their ads sucked me in). Also, the idea of a thin, light-weight foundation sounded perfect for summer. Here are my thoughts on this product after using it for more than a week.
Despite so many international brands coming to India, it is still hard to find some of the cult skincare products in our country. I have been trying to get my hands on the celebrated Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream since years, but it is not available anywhere without a whopping shipping charge. I finally settled for the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer instead, thinking that it will have somewhat similar ingredients (aka Retinol). I have been using this cream for over a month now and here are my thoughts on the product so far.
I recently received the Colourpop Supernova Shadow in the shade Moonlit as a giveaway prize from KittyP0p, and couldn’t have been happier at the inclusion of this product in the giveaway because getting Colourpop products shipped to India is a pain even though I love the brand so much! Even though the shade Moonlit doesn’t seem to available on the Colourpop website at the moment, I thought that I will review the formula of the shadow in case you wish to pick any other shade from the range. Read on to find out my thoughts on the product.
I have evaded colour correctors for the longest time, simply because I did not want to add yet another step to my makeup routine. However, once you see that your concealer is looking greyish underneath your eyes, you can’t unsee it. I realized that it might be time to add at least one orange corrector to my stash, so I picked up the LA Girl Pro Conceal HD in the shade Orange because I knew that one tube of this concealer will last me forever. Read on to find out how my experience has been with this orange corrector that the world loves.
