Hola how is the new year treating you? Mine feels like a good start so far! :)


Off late I have been using a few products from St.Botanica and having a lot of fun using them as they're unisex which means I can make Mr.Husband try them too ;) :D
Remember my post on Instagram here where I talked about this shampoo before? Not following me yet on Insta, then you're missing big time, do it right away from here :)
Coming back to the point, I got a chance to try this completely natural shampoo from St.Botanica. To know how it worked read on!

Friend: "Hey there is a new gel liner launched by EL. Would you want it?"
Me: "Naah let me first finish my Maybelline one!"
Sissy: "I'm going to order that new kajal from *** brand, heard it's awesome. Do you want one to try too?"
Me: "Oh no I already have too many kajals"
Advertisement: "Lakme launches it's new lip crayons"
Me: "Oh they're interesting! But I already have around 100s of lipsticks to finish off :( it's ok they're very affordable and tiny and cute. Maybe I can finish them off quick. Maybe not! 100+1 isn't gonna hurt right?! Im picking atleast one from the range.."
End up buying two!!
Always my story when it comes to lipsticks :P
Well yeah I picked 2 Lakme Enrich Satin Lip Crayons, went with neutral mlbb kinda shades as I have many reds and pinks already! Interested in knowing what shades I picked and more about these affordable beauties? Then read on ;)

I don't do much fashion posts here as I don't find much time to click pictures when I deck up! Im always on the run as I have a full-time job to keep up and most of the time I end up doing my makeup in my office restroom :/

These pictures were clicked a while back when I attended a friend's wedding in Mylapore Kapaleeshwar Temple, Chennai and thought why not share it :)
I wanted a super grand look but ended up doing it very simple as it was a temple wedding and the bride herself wasn't as decked up as me! :O

Be it any season I'm sucker for shower gels and perfumes!
Even in this cold weather I prefer a good shower gel and a relaxed bath rather than a quick shower :)
So when I get the chance to grab a bottle of gleaming golden orange shower gel that smells exotic could I say no? :D

Just like the evolution of mankind makeup brushes have evolved a lot starting from those fluffy brushes to flat top kabukis, makeup sponges to beauty blenders, rainbow\unicorn brushes to oval\toothbrush makeup brushes now!

Oval makeup brushes are all the rage right now and every makeup lover is pouncing on them! So what are these Oval Makeup Brushes anyways?
Oval Makeup Brushes are handy-dandy toothbrush sized brushes with thickly packed bristles, flat top and conveniently sized to make your makeup application flawless, quick & easy! :D isn't that great? ;)

I was eyeing these brushes for quite sometime now and was puzzled with which one to pick as many brands carry these now. That's when Anamika Sureka Malik of WiseShe generously sent me these 3 brushes to try and here is everything about them! :)

My love for lipsticks doesn't seem to be dying any soon and so is my love for experimenting new looks and styles with them!
I pick up atleast one lipstick from every new range and do try variety of shades. And today I'm going to show\explain how to get a simple and easy gradient lip just like that!
All you need is 3-5 minutes to read, at the max 5 minutes to do it and a whole day to Flaunt that se*y lips ;) :)

No more blurts just cutting to the chase :P
What you will need: 2 lipsticks one darker and one lighter. Would be good if they aren't from the same color family.
I picked a deep red & a pale peach lipstick.
