Hello sweethearts!

The weather in Chennai is getting cooler day by day due to the rains and I'm enjoying it (even got 2 days off this week coz of it ;))
I had wonderful and healthy hair until I moved to Chennai :( The water here has made my hair rough and it has totally lost its shine. Though Im trying to restore it through natural ways I was also on the look out for a good hair serum to give a temporary shine to my hair. By now you must have known that I don't easily invest a huge amount on products unless I know they are worth it. So again I was looking for an affordable serum and Livon was too famous that time! So I picked up this detangling hair fluid by Livon to try. Read on to know how it worked for me!


I have oily combination skin and that makes my nose prone to blackheads and whiteheads every now and then. Though I do at home facials once in a while I do prefer using a face scrub twice a week to keep my pores clean.
This daily scrub did look convenient and pocket friendly, so I picked it up to know if it can become my go to face scrub. Read on to know how it worked out :)



I love lipsticks of any kind (except the frosty ones) and these shine edition lippies from Bourjois have got rave reviews. So I decided to try a few of them :) Let's see how they are!

What The Brand Claims?

SHINE EDITION LIPSTICK

ULTRA SHINE, RADIANT COLOUR AND THE COMFORT OF A BALM

Though its not celebrated in India but still its my time of year and being a beauty blogger I love Halloween looks :D

So here is one of my own.

I picked up the dark princess look as it is easy, glam & gorgeous too :)



I had a serious obsession with nail polishes and nail art and own a big stash of nail paints :D
But I rarely post nail art pictures or review nail paints here - not sure what is stopping me though!

These nail arts are super simple and doesn't involve much knowledge or tools - you would just need the nail paints :)

I always love and adore the Chinese Fashion & Beauty industry for their cutest collection of products.

One such place is Sammydress.com - a global online fashion retail company that provides products at low prices as they sell the items for Factory prices.

Being a big time online shopper, a fashion blogger and a fashion lover I always head up to find new online fashion sites. I especially keep looking out for sites that sell fashion pieces at an affordable pricing :)

So when I came across Limeroad.com I was aww-ed by the site as well as their collection ;)
How much time do you spend finding that perfect pants for your tops? The cutest accessories for your perfect dress?
Well Limeroad.com brings them all at one place - a step ahead they match them for you!!


I love lipsticks and can never giveup on buying atleast one shade from every new launch ;)
So when Maybelline released the Color Show Lipsticks I was aww as they were super affordable and came in wide range of colors :)


What The Brand Says?

Intense Fashionable Lip Color

Maybelline Color Show Lipstick is a fashionable intense lipstick, which comes in chic to vivid shades. Maybelline Color Show Lipstick is highly pigmented giving bold lips.

• It stays for up to four to five hours.
• The creamy texture is not heavy on the lips.
• It does not smear or smudge.
• It does not settle in line.
• As its highly moisturized you don’t need to wear a lip balm


Price: INR 299 for 3.9 gms (very affordable right? :))

Shelf Life: 36 Months


My Take On Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Cherry Crush

Packaging

Maybelline Color Show Lipsticks come in a unique packaging - a black casing with a transparent color-coded strip in between to denote the color family which looks pretty impressive. The casing is pretty sturdy so no worries in carrying the lippy around during travels :)


Shade and Pigmentation

Cherry Crush is a light coral red with pink undertones which makes it a unique shade as it can be built up to get a deep shade or blotted down to go as a simple light lippy ;)
It doesn't have any fragrance in particular and doesn't leave any smell on lips.
Color show Cherry crush is well pigmented but doesn't give that full coverage in one swipe. You would need atleast 2-3 swipes to get that opaque coverage.


Texture and Staying Power

Maybelline Cherry Crush has a soft and creamy texture and applies super smooth on lips. However despite of the creamy texture it doesn't moisturize your lips not give that perfect canvas - it settles in fine lines at times :(
Cherry Crush has a decent staying power and lasts until 4-5 hours without any touch-up. It fades into a beautiful pink tint on lips which looks very natural :))



Overall Thoughts

Overall a pocket-friendly lipstick and a great shade. Decent for the price but could be little more better on the moisture part. I might pick this one again only for the unique shade. I personally feel the Streetwear ones are pretty awesome compared to this!

Hello sweetie pies!

worried about dull and dry hair?
Facing hair damage due to pollution?

A Hair Mask That Can Be Prepared Yourself At Home!







As you all know Im an avid online shopper and I never stop buying online :P
I mostly buy cosmetics, skin care and clothing from online stores.  There are several online stores which sell the above products and not all of them list them with same prices - prices may vary from site to site and its always brilliant to browse a few sites before ordering the product you want. I always check 3,4 sites before buying anything I want.

But what do you do when you wanna shop online just like that and have no specific product in mind?
Its called pressure-free shopping and trust me I buy most of my clothing like that :D
So in this case browsing several sites might lead to boredom making you just close the browser and move on! Oh come on I don't want to quit when I browse stores planning to buy something (rest of the time I also do online Window shopping :P)

In such times the "Coupon Sites" come in handy with amazing deals helping you to actually buy something :) Coupon sites are a platform where you can find all deets about on going sales\coupons\deals of most online stores at one place.
Couponzguru.com is one such site which I absolutely love as I find a deal for sure everytime I browse :) Read on to know more about them!

Hello all wish you a very happy Dad's day :))

I'm a sucker for shower gels and and a lover of citrus-y, musky fragrances. I love sweet fragrances too but not much! So when I happened to smell this one at the store I know it will come home with me :) Read on to know more about Palmolive Ayurituel Joyous Shower Gel!



Hello gorgeous!

Remember my post about the launch of a US based hair care brand named Nioxin in India?
If you have missed it, then please read it here :)

So I was provided a personalised 3 part system to take home with me and it was the System 1 - which is for normal to thin looking, fine textured natural hair.
I have been using the system for a month and come on its review time!





It was a busy Monday morning and I was getting ready for office (of course with no interest to leave). I have the habit of having my TV on all the time whether I watch it or not. So it was still on and they were telecasting Arya movie – again the interest to leave for office drained completely and I was stuck watching TV for a while. My office cab came just on time making me skip my breakfast and jump into my superwoman wheeler coasters! I collected my handbag and id card hastily and ran out to get my cab.


I know its super late - I kinda missed posting this up and thought wanna complete it today :P

So here is my April '15 Fabbag and the details about the products I got in it :)



When the world is revolving around matte lipsticks and brands are in the process of constantly improving their matte lipsticks formula, I'm reviewing a super moisturizing lipstick today!
The Clinique Moisturizing Chubby Stick in shade Graped up :)



A Pink Blossom Cheers Me Up & So Does A Perfect Pink Lipstick :)
There Is A Pink For Every Girl And Maybelline Has All Of Them In Their Pink Alert Range ;)

Do you feel like playing with the cement when you see it being poured out of a sack?
Do you love the wet cement's color?
Do you love matte finish nails?
Then this baby is for you!!

Avon Matte Nail Enamel Grey Cement is a Limited Edition nail polish released by Avon. I have always loved to buy some matte nail polishes but they were always pricey or had to be bought from international sites by paying high shipping!


Uff its just saturday and I have office tomorrow too :(
Days are very hectic and summer, especially in Namma Chennai is killing me even more!

Ok so coming to the post, I always love shirts and adore them as they are the easy-breezy outfits which can be easily styled up or down super quick. So I picked up this checker shirt with puff sleeves a while ago and wore it sometime back when I visited Mahabalipuram (again a historical spot in Chennai - oohhh exploring chennai :P).


I know I know how much tough it is to sharpen those really creamy lip or eye pencils in a jiffy.
They not only tend to spread all over the sharpener but also keep breaking leading to a lot of wastage and tension :(



Nioxin is a renowned Hair Care brand in Western countries specialized in treating thinning hair and increasing the thickness of your hair visibly.

Nioxin was launched at various places in India yesterday, May 16th, 2015 and I got a chance to attend the launch event in Chennai. The event was facilitated by Blogadda team and Nioxin had collaborated with Bounce Style Lounge to retail their products here in India.

The event was arranged in the Bounce Lounge located at the Ispahani centre, Nungambakkam, Chennai. Ankita Banerjee nd Ankita Vadhel were with us from the Blogadda team and Daisy from Bounce Lounge took us through the journey of knowing the brand - Nioxin :)

I'm basically a very lazy girl when it comes to using skincare products religiously (except makeup removal stuffs :P) and I keep cheating all the time :D
But recently I took up a challenge for myself to atleast try following a night skincare regime genuinely and see how my skin improvises :)

I have tried Garnier products in the past and though none of them were aww to me but still I somehow felt picking the Ganier Overnight Peeling cream over a Lakme night cream :P
So read on to know how it faired!



I'm recently getting attracted more to blushes and so you can expect several blush reviews :D
So here is a beautiful looking blush from Maybelline which makes me dreamy ;)



Hello sweeties!

Do you have many sheer or pearl finish polishes and keep applying too many coats of them just to make the color visible on your nails?
So how many of you have struggled and worried about those sheer nail polishes?
Shove off those worries coz here comes the saviour ;)

It’s a gel-based lip softener that promises to pamper your pout with color and moisture.

Hello Lovelies!

I’m here with my first OOTD and obviously im so nervous!

This is actually not just a OOTD but also a round-up of one of the beautiful places in Chennai. This place is called Dakshinachithra, a place that portraits South Indian tradition and culture (it covers the tradition and culture of 4 South Indian states – Tamil nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh).

A little about the place:

DakshinaChitra is a center for the living traditions of art, folk performing arts, craft and architecture of India with an emphasis on the traditions of South India. A project of the Madras Craft Foundation (MCF), a non-profit organisation. DakshinaChitra opened to the public in December 1996. The center occupies ten undulating acres overlooking the Bay of Bengal, at Muttukadu, twenty five kilometers south of Chennai, on the East Coast Road to Mamallapuram, Tamil Nadu, India.

More here:


The place was really a treat for eyes. It was so calm and green. Really a lovely place to visit this summer :D


Firstly a big SORRY for the delay in this post! It should've been up on Sunday but I delayed 2 whole days to post it up coz I was stuck with no Internet\Laptop for past 2 days (sudden travel plan) :(
Anyways I'm back now and I wanted this post to be up first without any delay :)



I bought this eyeshadow an year back but never got to use it as it is a powder shadow and a decent amount of patience and time is required to use it.
