MAC Prolong Wear Lip Crème Love Forever - Review

MAC Prolong Wear Lip Crème Love Forever Review and Swatch

It is a long story, how I got hold of this lipstick. I had seen the reviews of this lipstick when I was hunting for a perfect pink lipstick and fell in love with the color. I called the MAC stores in the city to find out it was unavailable. Only the third store which I called had it in stock. The MUA told that only one piece is available so I had to rush. The next day was a holiday so I didn't waste my time and landed at the store.  The MUA who attended my call previous day was not there so his colleague started searching for that one last piece which was in stock. Surprisingly, despite the product being so much in demand and not available in stock most of the times, the MAC MUA's were not so familiar about it. This guy went on searching and finally gave up telling probably the last piece was also sold out. Then suddenly the MUA who attended my call entered the store and found the piece that was reserved for me. When I asked for a tester, he said that they don’t have tester and I had to either buy the fresh piece or forget about it. I decided to take the plunge and bought it. :D

Faces Cosmetics Ultimate Pro long wear matte lipstick in 05 Peach Blush - Review

Lots of things going on in my life and here I am writing a lipstick review. At times, doing something as if there is nothing amiss helps a lot in bringing us back to normalcy.

Faces Cosmetics Ultimate Pro long wear matte lipstick in 05 Peach Blush

Today I bring you my current favorite MLBB lipstick from the Faces Cosmetics Ultimate Pro long wear range. It is called Peach Blush 05.

It comes in a thin matte black bullet. Though the packing is travel friendly, i would have preferred a thicker packing. The lipstick feels fragile as if it will uproot any moment.

Burst of Happyness What a Girl Wants facial cleanser

I love natural, preservative free products for my face and summers made my skin a little sticky in the T-Zone. Today, I am back with a Burst of Happyness cleanser designed for combination skin. You might have read how I was smitten by the face cleanser I got from them (if not, do read it here).

What a girl wants is a handmade clay based cleanser for oily and combination skin.

Chambor Rouge Plump Lipstick 772 Review and Swatch

Hello folks!

I have been addicted to lipsticks for a long time. My experiments with lip colors started with the budget friendly brands and slowly shifted to MAC. These days I am in search for that perfect nude lipstick for my skin tone. I found that L’oreal Color Riche lipstick in the shade Nature’s Blush is a nude lipstick that I quite liked for my skin tone. Once it got used up, I wanted to try another brand. Chambor Rouge Plump lipstick 772 was an impulse purchase but I love this shade very much.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Brick-O-la - Review, Swatch and LOTD

I love Colorbar Velvet matte lipsticks. I love them for their price, staying power and decent shade selection. I have couple of lipsticks from them and today I am going to review the shade Brick-O-La.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Brick-O-la

It comes in a silver bullet with a transparent cap. The cap feels feeble though I have not faced any accidents. If you intend to carry it in your handbag, always keep it in a pouch. Better be safe than sorry right?

I got it from jabong for Rs. 275/- for 4.2 g.

FabIndia Lemon Grass Facial Spray - Review

Hello friends,

I picked up this facial spray from FabIndia on a hot summer afternoon. It looked soothing and smelled wonderful.

FabIndia Lemon Grass Facial Spray

It comes in a weightless plastic bottle with a spray dispenser. I love to keep such facial mists in my handbag and use them when I am out and about on a sunny day. In Chennai, there is no dearth of sunny days. So facial mists are a must have for me.
