Hide those Flaws away..

17 Aug

Hello beauties,

It is said that after having a baby your life changes, but i would say that your life changes for good. Its a way God makes you realize the importance of being and having parents and the love we share is incredible.. Well i just loved this sudden transformation from being Jigyasa to Mumma.. love you Nick.. But hmm.. as it is said pregnancy and lactation comes with its own problems.. One of them which i faced badly are the PIMPLES.. eww..!! I had terrible marks on my face and the process of fading is very slow.. Really i cudnt go out with such a spotty face for days and used thousands of concealers to cover them but none of them worked to that desirable extent..

One fine day when i entered the store of MAC , i wanted to buy a peach blush but suddenly that girl in the store applied this concealer on one side of my cheek and wow.! the pimples were almost invisible.. and then i suddenly jumped in to by this product .Check the before and after pictures..

Rosey lipcolor for the summers..

14 Aug

Don’t you love the time when someone special in your life surprises you with beautiful red flowers? Yes, I am talking about roses, my dear hubby just brought some home yesterday! I am crazy about roses, but I think I am much more crazier for my Chambor lip shade in 265 innocent rose

This shade is almost like a color of a deep red rose. Unlike the regular lipsticks, the Chambor lipstick dispenses out of a brush. Initially, my first reaction was that this might more like a lip gloss than a lipstick, but boy was I wrong or what! The lipstick applies like a gloss but instantly transforms into a matte finish. Even though it’s matte, it does not settle down in the lines of my lips, which I love.

Now let me jot down some reasons as to why I love this product so much!

  • To start off, I am addicted to the color PINK! ( I have a huge collection of pinks in my entire makeup box)
  • Definitely try the color on before making a purchase, because it applies differently on different skin tones. 
  • The deep red color matches my complexion and complements my skin tone. 
  • The transformation from gloss to a matte finish. 
  • Great staying power – about 4 to 5 hours.
  • Contains Shea Butter to provide moisture and nourishment to lips. 
  • Price is alright, it costs around Rs. 595

My recommendation is that you all girls should definitely check out the color and think about investing in such a great product for the monsoons! 🙂

Perfect Pink for barbie like-look..

13 Aug

Having a baby boy is great and all, but I have always wanted to have a little girl, just so I could drimageess her up in cute floral dresses with a matching headband and pretty little sandals. But alas, I got a boy and now I have to work with the little man I have next to me, maybe I could dress him up sometime to satisfy my heart’s desire! 😉

Anyhoo, since I can’t have it all, I did manage to find something that I had been yearning for for the longest time. Yes, it’s time to introduce you all to 12 Rose Neon shade from Bourjois. This color is from the recent line, Rouge Edition, of Bourjois. You should check out all the latest shades in this collection because they are extremely bold and bright for the summer.  And just to let you all know, I searched for this beautiful pink shade everywhere, I even visited the Mac, Inglot, and Clinique stores but found nothing similar to this shade.

image(4)This shade after application matched my ideal bright pink color that I was longing for. The bright color is extremely glamorous and it can be worn in the day for a quick shopping spree as well as during night for a date. The shade provides a barbie-barbie look to the entire face, but yes, prefer to keep the eyes bare while using this shade. Try not to use eye-shadows and lean more towards using a more natural shade eye shadow with loads of mascara and eye-liner.

This color will also look amazing with black clothing (I am a true love and an addict of the color black), but I also believe one should not be monotonous, so try wearing this with whites, nudes, but stay away from wearing bright colored shirts as it might become a bit too loud and gaudy.

Just to sum it up, the lipstick has:

image

  • Creamy matte finish
  • Moisturizing 
  • Great staying power ( 4-5 hours)
  • Attractive packaging
  • Price is a bit on the higher side – Rs. 995 for 3.5 grams.

I will definitely buy the lipstick again and would love to explore with the other colors of the same edition.
