Are you a person who prefers shaving just like me?
Or do you love your razors and are fed up seeing them "rusting"?
Yes the Iron Oxide that is a bigggg enemy :(
Then this hack is just for you ;)

Here are the steps to save your razor from rusting. Follow this simple routine and save them big time. All you need is the magic potion you come across everyday!! :D

Step 1: Pick that rusty razor :)

Step 2: Clean off the rust using your favourite soap\liquid soap and any old toothbrush.

Step 3: Grab it and dry it quick. Pick out your hand sanitizer and sanitize the razor. This is an extra step just to make sure your razor is squeaky clean :)

Step 4: Pick out the magic tub of VASELINE from your vanity. Yes that is the magic potion I have been referring all this time :P I chose the germ-safe version (just to ensure cleanliness again :D)




Step 5: Pick out any of your old brush or a eyebrow brush (or even a q-tip would do I guess) and apply the vaseline on the razor blades.
Make sure not to do this step using your fingers as your razor blades would harm your fingers.

Step 6: Let the razor aside for few minutes and tada your rust free razor is ready. Until the vasleine coating exists your razor blade is safe from rusting.
Actually the vaseline acts as an inhibitor and prevents the razor blade from oxidizing (some science :P).

Do try this and let me know how it works out ;)
Take care until next time :)

Are you a fan of coral lips? Do you think they just pop up the whole look and brightens your face instantly? :)
Then this super affordable lipstick is just for you!
It is a shade from the new Streetwear Color rich range of lipsticks I'm talking about.

The range comprises of wonderful collection of shades from pinks to oranges to reds at an affordable pricing of 180 INR!!

I picked up 2 shades from the collection and one of them is Pink Persuasion. Let me talk about the lipstick :)


Packaging 

These lipsticks come in regular plastic bullet style with a black case and a transparent cap (nothing fancy here) but the cap has a graphic girl printed on it which makes the packaging quite attractive and quirky ;)



Shade description

Pink Persuasion is a beautiful muted pinkish coral which doesn't scream color but at the same time gives a instant brightness to face.



Texture and pigmentation

The lipstick is super smooth - has a moist yet matte finish. It is highly pigmented and you can get a full coverage with just 2 swipes :) great at this pricing I would say! Pigmented enough to cover dark lips too :D Best part is feels super light even if 4 coats are applied ;)




Longevity

The lipstick stays for a decent 3-3.5 hours after which it starts fading. Doesn't stand sipping and munching so re-aplication is a must :(

Final words

Personally I feel it is super hot shade and can be worn everyday even :) And at this price you cannot ask for more! Would definitely repurchase once I finish it :P

Swatches











Repurchase\recommend: Hell ya! ;)

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 (-0.2 for longevity)






Leggings are a hot wardrobe essential these days which is super stylish and sexy making it ideal for any occasion. Unlike your jeans or pants, leggings are those skinny bottoms that are super fit and flattery on you. Getting a legging with best fit, comfort and fits like a second skin is every girl’s dream :)

Though Leggings can be worn at anytime, anywhere still wearing it the right way would gain you the respect and appreciation too as you would need to style a legging based on your body type and style-preference. Most girls here in Southern part of India style a legging with a kurti and times with a matching dupatta and feels that they are done with the costume. However there are many other ways to style a pair of leggings in the conservative and comfortable way. Let’s look into a few tips and tricks to make them flattery on you ;)

A Long Top Is Always The Best Bet

Are you slim, bottom heavy, plus size? Worry not! Despite of whatever size you are you can wear a legging with super comfort when paired with a long top as it covers you up with necessary style too.



The Regulars

Pairing a legging with a kurti is a regular but simple and comfy style. To pep up the outfit, you can throw in a denim jacket\blazer or pull off a stylish bellarinas with it and perk it up ;)





A Dress Is Always At Your Help

Love dresses but not happy in wearing it on its own? I have the same problem as wearing a dress here in Chennai would make people turn their heads and open mouths in shock :( And at times im too not much comfortable in showing more skin :P So pairing a short dress (one that would flatter your body type – maybe a peplum dress if you are bottom heavy or a bodycon if you are slim enough) with leggings and boots always brings in the uber stylish look and is definitely a head turner in positive ways ;) I say this because my most Friday casuals comprise of a dress with leggings :D







Shirt On Sleeves Up

A shirt works the same way as a long top with leggings giving you the comfort and casual look. Better prefer long shirts if you are bottom heavy ;)



A Tee For The Geek

Love the geeky look or wanna look more casual? Pair up your legging with a long tee and wear those nerdy glasses to spice it up :) The outfit can be customized with layers in winters to turn the look climate perfect ;)



The Warm Way

Perfect way to style a legging for winters is with sweaters and cardigans ;) A printed leggings would add more style and grace to the outfit :D

My take on Colorbar Pout in a Pot Lip color Rose Petal

I picked up this lip pot from a blog sale and used it once after buying. I kept it off somewhere for a while and totally forgot it exists :(
One day when I was clearing my makeup goodies, I found it back and was like "Oh I even one such cute lippy!".

This lipstick was giving me the feel of a lip balm (blame the packaging) and so I always mis-interpreted it to my lakme lip love :P But I love its packaging a lot. Very compact and handy :)



The lip color is super creamy and gives excellent coverage in just one swipe. You can put on a extra layer if you like to get the plumpy look :) Its super pigmented and gives best coverage even for pigmented lips in one swipe :D A little tip is to not apply more than 2 coats as the lippy bleeds due to its super creamy texture.

As it is super smooth and creamy, no lip balm is even required beneath. It has a good wear time and lasts until 4-5 hours without eating or drinking. But definitely needs to be re-applied if snaking in between.


So if you are looking for a good lip color with excellent pigmentation, smooth texture and good wear time then this is definitely the one you need to pick. It has pinks and corals to choose too ;)
I definitely recommend it to everyone :)
