Beauty favorites- Jan 2018

Hey everyone!

I still cannot believe that the first month of this year is already over! Come next week, and I have a packed travel & events schedule for almost a month and I cannot contain my excitement. In the meanwhile, let me share with you some products that I enjoyed using in January. Some of them are very exciting new discoveries!

1. The Body Shop EDP- Bowhanti: A spicy woody fragrance, Bowhanti from the Wacapou tree is recreated and combined with a smoky blend of patchouli and incense for mysterious seduction. This fragrance is love at first whiff! I love the intense, seductive woody, patchouli and incense note. This is unlike anything else I’ve ever sampled!

Price: Rs. 3595 for 50mL. Buy here.

2. Colorbar Spotlight Illuminating Lotion: I’m totally into a healthy glowing base for my makeup right now, and this one is right up my alley! Gives a nice dewy finish to the skin without looking OTT. I like to use this under my foundation. It looks like it has a pinkish color, but that doesn’t translate on the skin. Give it a try if you want the illusion of good skin under a grand.

Price: Rs. 950. Buy here on Nykaa

3. The Body Shop shimmer wave- Bronze: This is something I re-discovered from my stash this past month. I’d completely forgotten how much I loved it’s versatility. Good to use on the cheeks and the eyes too for a hint of shimmer where needed.

Price: Rs. 1445. Buy here

See it in action in my video below:

4. Vicco Turmeric skin cream in oil base: A great new discovery from the house of Vicco, a brand that we have grown up with. Read my full review here.

5. BeYu Healthy Glow makeup base: As already mentioned, glowing skin is my favorite thing to do right now, and this primer adds the right hint of glow while making your makeup last for longer. Read full review here.

6. Maybelline x Gigi Hadid eyeliner- While the rest of the range had me like ‘meh’, I quite love this black eyeliner and have been using it non-stop ever since I got it! Check out my video below for the deets:

Hello ladies!

The month of love is here! And while I personally do not believe that you need to celebrate love on just one day in the year (love should be celebrated every day!), you can certainly enjoy some extra celebration on Valentine’s Day! So for this special day, you need a romantic, soft, uber feminine yet easy to do makeup look! I’ve created one such look for you girls with the new The Body Shop- Jacqueline’s limited edition makeup range 2.0.

Watch my tutorial below:

I’ve used the following products for this look:

  1. The Body Shop Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation: My current favorite foundation- it gives good coverage, stays on for almost the entire day and gives a soft matte finish. Good for oily/ combination skin.

2. The Body Shop All-in-One face base: Another favorite from TBS! This is a great powder compact which gives some coverage too while keeping the face matte for a good number of hours.

3. The Body Shop eye color sticks- Great new launches from TBS. Easy to blend color sticks with good color payoff, decent staying power and matte finish.

4. The Body Shop Down to Earth Palette: I love the color range in these palettes. Versatile ones and easy to carry!

5. The Body Shop Lash hero Fibre Extension mascara: I’ve been loving this new fibre mascara trend, and this is a great volumising mascara to try. Use the fibres for extra volume when needed, else use the regular mascara alone. Love it!

6. The Body Shop shimmer wave- Another multi-tasking product from the brand. I use it on the cheeks and eyes too. Gives a nice flush of color with a hint of shimmer/ shine.

7. The Body Shop Smoky 2-in-1 liner: Use it to fill in the brows and line the eyes too for a soft natural finish.

8. The Body Shop Shine Lip Liquid- I’m bowled over by this new launch- the color payoff is great (coming from someone with pigmented lips!) and it keeps your lips soft minus the stickiness. Love it!

Hope you watched the video and enjoyed it too!

Shop for these products on The Body Shop website here.

Vicco turmeric…Nahi cosmetic…Vicco turmeric Ayurvedic cream!

If you are a kid from the 80’s and 90’s, I’m sure you read the above line while singing it out loud! Vicco Turmeric (read review here) is that one skin cream we all grew up with, something which we all have used and loved too! And I’m glad to discover a new, innovative yet close to the roots of Vicco product- the new Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream In Oil Base. Read on for the full review.

About Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream In Oil Base

Vicco Turmeric Cream in Oil Base moisturizes and nourishes your skin with intensive care. Turmeric works as the best Ayurvedic Medicine for dry skin, it can help restore your natural glow and treat uneven skin tone.It makes your skin nourished and the tonal value is improved which makes your skin beautiful. All Vicco products are Vegan and Halal certified as well.

Packaging

The product comes in a bottle with a pump dispenser.

Ingredients: Extracts of turmeric (Circuma Longa, Linn,-Rhizone-Powder) 12% w/w. Excipients q.s. (in an oil base)

My take on Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream In Oil Base

The product has a lotion-like consistency and is easy to blend. It gets absorbed into the skin pretty easily without leaving any greasiness on the skin. The visible yellow tint because of the turmeric makes your skin glow but does not stain clothes etc. The lotion leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth, and the skin stays moisturized all day. I also like using this before bedtime to help the turmeric act on the skin overnight for maximum benefits.

The antiseptic properties of turmeric in the lotion help heal the skin of any breakouts, boils, cuts and wounds, so it is safe for application even if you have small cuts etc. It also prevents skin infections. Since it is an Ayurvedic product, you can use it all over the body, all round the year.

And with the trust of Vicco as a brand, there are no reasons to not pick this product up.

Price: Rs. 215 for 300g. Buy online here.

The theme of fashion is very popular in our time, especially among young people. This is not surprising, since they always want to be in the highlight.

Sometimes it seems that fashion has completely hold sway over us. If you look ridiculous, but dressed fashionably – you’re cool, but if you aren’t – a loser. But, never judge a book by its cover. And it’s very sad that most people, when meeting a person, look at his clothes and labels, but not on the face or eyes. We become slaves of our stereotypes and our bodies, clothed in a fashionable shell, beyond which we sometimes don’t see even ourselves.

Now it is fashionable to turn clothes into a cult, the pathos word “glamour” long ago causes only a disdainful fit of laughter in many normal people. Things with labels are losing their value. Not in terms of their value, but when it comes to relevance. Now fashionable exclusive things of unknown designers that exist in a single copy. Instead of replicating collections of famous brands, dusting on the shelves of boutiques, waiting for the day when someone will scratch up for the desired haute couture jeans.

We don’t value what we should appreciate. We have long ceased to appreciate simple things, because we firmly and permanently took the power of the word “fashion” and “glamour”. And what about really valuable things like kindness, friendship, honesty, love? Young girls, when a guy step up to them, first of all pay attention to his phone and brand of his shoes, and not at his nice blue eyes and wonderful sense of humor, herewith thinking: “if he is not fashionable and not stylish, I’ll immediately flip him off. ” Learn how to win the attention of the girl you like from russian ladies.

Attractive appearance is not enough to achieve success. In addition, one must be intelligent and educated. Otherwise, without necessary skills, you can’t bring any benefit to society. Therefore, it won’t need you.

After all, appearance isn’t so difficult to change – another hairstyle, different clothes and a completely different person. But what is inside – what is hidden behind clothes and appearance, to change it isn’t so simply, more often – impossible. We don’t think about it, because the substitution of true moral ideals with material things has taken the bark off all that is really valuable.

In conclusion, fashion plays a significant role in our life. But nevertheless, we shouldn’t forget that moral human qualities are much more important and have greater value. Tastes differ and style can be developed, the surest sign of which is to be yourself, regardless of the circumstances.

Gigi x Maybelline collection- Review + Video

Hey girls!

So the new Gigi x Maybelline collection has finally been launched in India. Only in parts though- we still haven’t got the palettes here. But I picked up 4 of the 5 new products and put them to the test for you guys. You can check out the video below for the details on this range:

Gigi x Maybelline collection review- The Indian Beauty Blog - YouTube

GigixMaybelline collection has a black liquid eyeliner, a dual-ended fibre mascara, 2 shades of eyebrow pencil and 6 shades of lipstick. There’s also a gel eyeliner pencil which I did not pick up because I picked up the liquid eyeliner.

Gigi x Maybelline matte lipsticks- Of the 6 shades, I picked up Austyn which is a classic red. The collection has no surprises for you in terms of the shade selection, so I was pretty disappointed. The packaging says it’s a matte lipstick, but on me it was creamy to begin with and semi-matte later but not a matte (like this one). The lipstick also disappeared within a few hours. Well!

Buy here

Gigi x Maybelline Fiber mascara (Black)- One of my favorite products from the range- the mascara and the fibres together give you good volume and length. Check out the video for full deets!

Buy here

Gigi x Maybelline Fashion brow (Dark brown)- I really like this as a product. It fills in the brows nicely and even sets them a little bit thanks to the texture. The quantity that you get is quite less for the price though.

Buy here

Gigi x Maybelline Liquid Liner (Black)- Another favorite from the range, this one is for the keeps!

Buy here

Do check out the video for a detailed review and demo of all the products. Also don’t forget to subscribe to my channel for more such videos. I promise I’ll be regular on YouTube from now! 

*All products were purchased by me for this review.

Well, 2018 has just begun. It means that new flashy fashion trends are coming! The greatest designers demonstrated their collections on Fashion Weeks so now I can easily tell you what makeup and hairstyle solutions are going to be in trend the next year.

Rounded cat-eye flicks

Making a cat-eye flick requires practice and patience that’s why many girls do it quite seldom. In 2018, this makeup method is going to transform radically. So, try to draw a wing with a rounded edge instead of sharp. It is easy to do with a small sponge. Such bold solutions were noticed on the shows of Tom Ford and Jason Wu.

Bright red lipstick classic

Such things never go out of fashion. Raspberry and cherry tones are in favor. As opposite to the last year trend of lip-gloss and liquid lipsticks, now it is time of bullets again. Such solutions for look were noticed on most of the shows with world best-known models including American, European, and Ukrainian girls.

Peach and sandy eye-shadows

Many models from the fashion shows last year showed up with eye-shadows of neutral and delicate colors. This trend is much classic, moderate, and it’s suitable for many girls and different occasions.

Aqua-blue, lilac, and lime-green eyeshadows

Now it’s time for something extraordinary. No, everyone knows that bright colored eyeshadows are popular throughout many years, but in 2018 their glory boosts up to new level. Don’t be afraid to use such cosmetics, especially when you are going to hang out. Such bold images were noticed on the presentations of Tracy Reese, Marni, Missoni, and many others.

Glitters and rhinestones

Ashish, Dries Van Noten, Ralph & Russo, and other big designers astonished everyone at their vision of glittering makeup. It doesn’t matter what you chose – gold, silver or even black – it will be fabulous. If you want to make more striking look, add few rhinestones to your image (when I say it, I mean applying it to your eyelids).

Shining skin and golden highlighter

It seems this makeup trend will last for next few years. It is perfect for any type of skin and for many special occasions. That’s why girls love it. Highlighter is a must-have for every girl this year if you haven’t bought it yet.

Nude fresh skin

You will ask “How is that possible? The previous trend was shining face!” Well, this trend is a must if you want to emphasize your eyes or lips. Wanna have crimson or raspberry lips? Don’t overdo with blusher and foundation with thick texture. Follow the same principle when you want to make your eyelids lime-green or neon-blue. Sounds logical, right?

Thick eyelashes

Long and dense lashes a-la retro is the last beauty trend of this year. Use much mascara and eyelash extensions. Make it right to achieve this effect.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish- Soft and Gentle, Dark: Review, swatches

Hey girls!

Contouring and highlighting is that one makeup step which a lot of us either love or love to hate. A lot of makeup artists swear by it, and a lot of them do not like it (like Bobbi Brown!). A lot of girls either do it every day, or just don’t. And while I like to go subtle with the contouring and highlighting, I must admit that I do enjoy doing it every now and then, especially when I’m wearing full foundation. Of late, I’ve been hooked on to these two products from MAC, and have been totally loving them. Read on to know what and why!

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural- Dark

Deep Caramel is what MAC describes this shade as. It is a deep colored powder with a very soft, almost invisible sheen which makes this powder perfect for adding a soft contour to the face. The powder, being enriched with multi-mineral complex and vitamin E, is perfect for those with combination- dry skin.

As a contouring product, this adds just the right amount of depth to the aplication points without making it look too jarring. So your face will get contoured without looking un-natural, something I really love!

Depending on what shade you pick up, you could use this powder as a full-face powder too since this one comes in 18 shades and you are likely to pick one that matches your skintone.

Price: Rs. 2600

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish- Soft and Gentle

The most talked about powder highlighter on this planet, and rightly so! MAC describes this shade as a ‘Gilded peach bronze’ which makes this highlighter universally suitable. If you happen to follow YouTube makeup tutorials, you’d know how much everyone around the globe loves this highlighter. It adds just the right amount of sheen to the skin and blends well with the skin ever so beautifully, giving you that soft lit-from-within glow. Also, you need a very tiny bit of this highlighter to get that glow going!

Price: Rs. 2600

Wearing both these products in the pictures below:

Overall, these are my current favorite highlighting and contouring products and I totally recommend them. Do share your favorites in the comments below.
