Reverse Shampooing Featuring Boots Intensive Treatment Mask

DSC_0004

So now with the rainy season, our hair tend to start getting sticky and oily. With humidity our hair becomes frizzy. Who doesn’t long for silky and well maintained hair? I have been trying this new trend of reverse shampooing since summer and I was quite happy with the results.

My hair are very oily and stay limp on the 2nd hair day. Though I was able to get rid of the oil with my Batiste Dry Shampoo, I still wanted to try some other methods which worked well.

I saw this video by Huda beauty on reverse shampooing and decided to try it and it was amazing.

We have many brands now coming up with products for reverse shampooing but your normal conditioner and shampoo will do the same trick.

DSC_0048

Hiya Beauties,

However much I try , I just cannot find time to post articles on my log. Sometimes I have the content ready but no photos and swatches or the other way round. On my recent trip to my home I have taken many photos of products I wanted to review. I am happy about it. Now I just have to concentrate on the articles.

Today the review will be on Makeup Revolution Palette – Sugar and Spice. Makeup Revolution has made a name for itself in such short period of time and for a good reason though. Their products are amazing and so affordable. They always seem to come with dupes of High-end products in affordable prices and such amazing quality.

KIKO VolumeEyes+ Active Mascara Review

 

Hiya Beauties,

Hope you all are enjoying and achieving whatever you have planned for 2016. We are already in mid of the year 2016 so fast.
I wanted to travel a lot this year and I have had very little luck with that with my busy schedule. Nonetheless, still more months to go right? On this note , I wanted to review a product that I picked up on my travels.
When I was travelling to Italy, I had decided to stock up as many KIKO items as possible. I wanted to do this on my last day there, but having forgotten to carry my Mascara back home, had to rush to nearest KIKO shop near my hotel and pick up a Mascara. and lo behold!!! One thing led to another and I ended up stocking many products from KIKO.

I absolutely fell in love with 1 particular Mascara because of its  wand : KIKO VolumeEyes+ Mascara.

So here’s my review on it whether only the wand is the highlight or does the Mascara also has something to rave about.

Perfect Gift Set from Forest Essentials

The perfect gift!!! Is there anything like the perfect gift? Sometimes my answer will be yes and at times no… I mean really can anyone be satisfied with a gift and ultimately call it perfect. I don’t think so. Anyways if not a perfect gift I am listing a ‘good enough’ gift for men or even women for that matter. I have purchased it trice already to gift 3 men and all seemed very happy with it. Men!!!! So Easy to please. Since I bought it 3 times just to gift someone I thought this product requires a mention on my blog.I gave this to my friend who was moving abroad so that he will be reminded of his roots through the smell of the soaps. And he did actually call me and thanked me for this gift.

Lipstick Shades for Working Women |Featuring Lakme India

Hiya Beauties,

Couple of weeks ago, I posted a picture on my Lakme 9 to 5 Crease-less lipstick collection and many of you were asking and messaging me on the shade names. My personal Instagram account: HERE (Do follow ).

I hadn’t gone around doing the lip swatches so I couldn’t reveal the shades yet. So here I am writing a post on it. Basically I had decided to do a professional series of style and makeup since I am working in IT industry and I know it is tough out there to shuffle between work and personal care and style. I hope you have read my post on ballet shoes for working women. If not here is the link : CLICK .

Coming to this post, Lakme India had released their products in 9 to 5 series couple of years ago specifically targeting at working women. Since it is era of matte lips, I found these lipsticks while swatching at a counter and my love for them started. They were matte , long lasting and the shades were to die for. In India if we search for lipsticks we will mostly find reds, maroons and pinks. It is really difficult to find nudes, browns and corals, but my search was over with Lakme Crease-less 9 to 5 lipsticks.

Review|Forest Essentials Cane Sugar Lip Scrub

Hiya Beauties,

The trend of liquid lipsticks full fledged is ON in the makeup world. And do you know what it does to lips besides making them look glamorous and matte?? Yes you got that right: dry and flaky. I love my liquid lipsticks. It is best thing to have in your collection. Somehow glossy lips don’t look so good on me. Yet , since I have started using the liquid lipsticks, it has taken a major toll on my lips. They are kinds of flaky and dry and  just couldn’t rely on only my good old lip balms to nourish my lips. So I went ahead and bought the Forest Essentials Cane Sugar Lip scrub. Read on to know how it fared.

And today’s post will be on how to add a bling to your eyes. These tips are the best ways to doll up your eyes.

Palazzo pants are a craze these days. Every woman of any age, size, etc. is sporting one. And everyone seems to carry it in panache.

But no matter what I try it doesn’t suit on me. Whisper: I guess it is my thighs. Shhh!!!!
