Heyyllloo my beautiful people, welcome to my may favorites. This month has been been quite a pain, I had vivas, fell ill, and what not.. I am pretty good now though … Phew!

This month I fell in love with a lot of products, and appreciated some old ones 😉

Lakme Bi-phased Makeup remover: This is a repeat from the last month’s favorite.. I just couldn’t help not including this, Recently I’ve been wearing a lot of liners and eye shadows and this baby is does a really good job!

Travalo Atomizer : I LOVE this. period. If you are a perfume addict you neeeed this with you with out fail.  Say good bye to bulky / breakage prone bottles carry this instead and you are good to go.

Nike Perfume in Casual : This is my go to scent for summer these days. This smells clean and fruity, But is not crazy loud so very apt for this heat.

Eos Lipbalm in Summer Fruit:  I’ve always wanted to own one egg of this at least and I’ve been using this every single day ever since I bought it.  This is very light on the lips and hydrates pretty well.

Faces lip brush:  I love using this to fill in my lip color. This is affordable and does the job really well!

Real techniques base shadow brush: This is amazing for my hooded eyes… It helps fill in the color without much problem and picks up good amount of product.

Neutrogena Oil free moisturizer : I’ve been using this for a long time now and I love it! It doesn’t cause excess shine or sweat. Also absorbs quick and moisturizes the skin, I really like using this under my makeup.

Nivea Lip butter in Raspberry rose:  This is a very thick lip butter, works really well for hydrating and repairing lips, though I use this only during nights since it does leave a white cast and feels heavy.

Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 2 : Okay, I did it again. But I cannot help it I have been loving this shade alot and this is my go to lip polish these days.  😛

The Body shop Strawberry Body Polish: I really like how this smells .. yummm! It does the job pretty fine. It is gentle on the skin and lathers really well 😀

Food and Drinks: 

I have been loooving the Tiramisu shake alot.

I have been eating alot of mango pickle lately, does that count? 😛

 

What are your favorites for this month?

My Envy Box – May 2014

Heyyllooo my beautiful people how are you doing?? I am back home for vacations and must say the climate is sizzling hot :/ Pheww! It has been a sweat filled journey so far, I am bathing in sunscreens 😉
Today I am reviewing this hot month’s much awaited “hot stuff” – My Envy Box ^_^
I really love beauty boxes, for they let me explore various products which I wouldn’t otherwise try or may be   wasn’t even aware of. My Envy Box is one such luxury sample box which lets me explore products which I can try before I buy, hence saving lots of bucks.
My Envy  Box is available for Rs. 850, and provides 5 samples consisting of international samples/ luxury product samples. It is currently based on a invite base, you can request one  Here.
I’ve had high expectations since the Ah-mazing April Box  did this May box fare-well? or was this a disappointment. Find out!

Like the last month My  Envy box came in a sturdy pink box, which I absolutely love! It contained a black pouch and 5 samples.
Here are the Products I got in my May- My Envy Box.
 

Innisfree- The Green Tea Seed Serum – This is going to be my first ever innisfree product [umm..sample ]. I ve heard alot about their range, so I am quiet excited to try this sample out. This having green tea extracts makes it all the more happening.

Down Town CK– Well, If you know anything about me I am a perfume ADDICT. I was soo happy to see a perfume sample, which smells delightful…. Crisp and fresh! Ahhh… need I say more?

Za true White Cleansing Foam: I received one ZA product last time, hence I am happy they gave a cleansing foam this time. Which is good,  I can Try the C-M routine to see if this brand works for me! 😀

Eminence – Tropical Vanilla Sun Cream SPF32: I am very excited to try this out, ask why??
1] This is a need in this summer- spf!
2] Vanilla!!!! I had to re-read this .. sigh! I love vanilla-anything 😛 I wished they gave a lil more quantity of this one.. sigh!

H2o+ Targeted Cream – Hand and Nail:  Lastly the box contained this beautiful Hand cream. I love how H2o gives generous samples this will last me quiet a while. So far I like this lets see after a try or two.

Overall Thoughts : I am happy with this month’s box, Everything from the packaging to the products were impressive, though the quantity of the vanilla sun cream could have been.. errr more?? I hope they include makeup samples too. I am excited to try everything, Since I haven’t tried any of these products.

Hope you enjoyed.

Top 5 Make up Mistakes to AVOID !

Heylloooo my beautiful people.. Today is a post on 5 mistakes to avoid for a better make up. This is my take on this topic do let me know of your views. I hope you enjoy this post. 


1] Using Heavy Eyeliner on the Eyes:  Before you give a what-the-hell expression, read this 🙂 As women age, over usage or using dramatic “eyeliner”  places emphasis on the wrinkles around the eyes and the thinning lashline. Be sure to keep the eye make up simple and elegant. Thickening the line will look fake and can go wrong.
Solution? Use neutral shades for eye shadow and choose kajal/ Pencil eye liners over liquid eyeliners and you are good to go! 

2] Using a very light concealer: This one is much mentioned, yet much neglected mistake. Never use a concealer which very light to conceal since that would highlight the very part you are trying to hide! 
Solution: Many artists recommend using a concealer which is a shade light. It will add to the “awake look” and conceal the dark circles. 
3] Highlighting both the features:  When you play both the features it will look like a mess. why you ask??  It will look unappealing and confusing since all the features will scream for attention. Even the pretty leighton Meester couldn’t pull this off. 😐
Solution: When doing make up remember the thumb rule, play with one feature at a time. When wearing a spiced up eye makeup go light on the lip stick. And when wearing bold shades, keep eye makeup neutral or light.
 4] Overly done eyebrows: Overly done  eyebrows give an “unnatural” look, They clearly look made up and straight-fake-in -your -face kinds! Eyebrows frame your face, hence getting them right is crucial! 
Solution: To avoid this use an eyebrow pencil one shape lighter than your natural hair and fill in using feathery strokes[light handed.] and fill in the shape.
 5] Using the wrong shade of lipstick: Not every shade is meant to suit every skin tone. Depending on your skin tone and if you are a warm / cool undertone tone a few colors might not suit you. It is important to choose accordingly. [ let me know if you want a post explaining skin undertones.]  
Solution: Choose lipsticks according to your skin tone and undertone, one good shade will transform your whole look. It can make you look your best or your worst nightmare.
These are a few mistakes to avoid. Many more to follow.. do let me know your views on this post.

Which mistake do you see most commonly made?

How to Layer Skin care Products

Heyaaa beautiful people, I hope you all are doing wonderful! Today I’ll be writing a post which has also been one the most asked questions. Since  I am a lazy bee, I like keeping things simple  for 2 reasons
1] I fail to remember complicated regimes.
[I forget easily 😉 ]
2] I forgot what was the 2nd one 😛
*facepalm*
Moving on here is a simple skin care products “Layering” you need to follow…
How to layer skin care products
How to layer skin care products
 There are many different ways people “layer” their skin with products, hence no one routine can be perfect for all. So, Please feel free to follow your heart and of course the results you see. 😉

Serum: Serums are skin care products with concentrated  active ingredients. These are highly effective and penetrate the skin deeply working more effectively. Which is why these are to be applied the first thing on a clean skin.

Targeted Treatment: These include the zit / acne /scars etc treatments .. The ones that are targeted for treating a specific problem.. if that makes sense :/  these are to be applied after applying the serum. this can also include the eye care treatment. These are the areas requiring “extra” attention and require this step.

All over treatment: This includes anti wrinkle / aging creams, dark patches, dry/peeling skin .. etc  various skin related treatments.. ]. They are applied right after the targeted treatments, following this step next ensures that the “spots” requiring extra care receive the extra boost from the above treatment.

Moisturizer: Moisturizer  creates a barrier and seal in everything.. which is why a moisturizer plays a very important role. You wouldn’t want the whole hard work go in vain. So, slather on the moisturizer and massage away all your worries!

Well, this is my short take on layering skin care products.. I hope you like it…

Do let me know if you like the explanations short or you would like a detailed article.

*Please no hate 😉

What is your layering routine?

Motivation Monday – Don’t Settle.

Today’s post is a simple truth we all need to remember males//females … remember YOU don’t need anyone who doesn’t need YOU.  At times you’ll have to make these tough decisions of letting go of people. You might feel like you cannot live without them. But trust me you don’t need to beg someone to love you or to stay in your life.

 If they love you back they will stay with you no matter what. If someone is trying to push you out of their life or is ignorant to you. Don’t beg them to stay, don’t try to sew something long torn … this will never give you happiness. Move on and let life bring people who truly are meant for you close to you. it is only through opening doors for new opportunities that you will meet people who will cherish you…!

Stay Strong.
Be Blessed!

Review – Travalo perfume atomizer

Heyyyllooo my beautiful friends today I’ll be reviewing a product which has become a staple now. I am a perfume lover/hoarder/addict. But god knows how many times I failed at carrying around my favorite perfume because the bottle was too bulky or leakage-prone!! 🙁
I’ve always been on a hunt for a way to carry my favorite fragrance around without having to risk my bottles. After having experimented quiet a bit with different brands promising to stay leak-proof, easy to use etc. and failing at them. I stumbled across this lil revolution!

About the Product: 

Travalo is designed to slip into bags or pockets easily and moves around smoothly, so you hardly know it’s there until you need it. Travalo comes in 2 sizes. The original holds 50 sprays of fragrance (4ml), whilst the Classic Excel holds 65 sprays (5ml), has a full size aluminium spray head, and comes with a storage / carry case It has an integrated fill level indicator window, so you never run out unexpectedly, and you never over fill it. Travalo is approved as carry on luggage on board aircraft anywhere in the world.

How to Use?
Remove the spray head from your perfume bottle.
Place your Travalo upright on top of the nozzle peg
Simply pump it up and down to fill.
Keep pumping until the fragrance level reaches the top of the window.
Do not overfill!
My experience: This is such a boon! A savior for all the perfume lovers! It is easy to fill, the indicator helps to see the quantity filled in. Doesn’t leak and is travel friendly. There are many pretty options/colors to choose from. I’ve been carrying around my favorite fragrances in this, makes the job so much more easy!! There is no rocket science involved in filling in the product, which makes it user friendly.  All you have to do is remove the cap of the spray and fit the bottom of the travalo on the pump and move it up and down until you get in the desired quantity. There are many pretty colors to choose from and they also have launched variations, other than the classic range.

Available at: TravaloAmazon.  Buy from here in INDIA

Pros:
Easy to fill.
Transparent space provided to see the quantity.
Doesn’t leak.
Airplane friendly.
Takes secs to fill!!
Cute colors to choose from.
Very light.
Sturdy bottle.
Different models available.

Cons
Availability is  an issue.

Rating: 5/5.

Recommendation: If you looove your perfumes but can’t carry the bulky/ breakage – leakage prone bottles this one is for you! Trust me this will be your life savior! This is an investment for all the people who love travelling compact and are always on the go. This will save a lot of space and it is easy to travel with. You’ll hardly know this exists until you need it! Highly Recommended!

Heyylloo beautiful people! Today I’ll be reviewing a product from the much loved Maybelline Colossal Khol range. Did this one live upto the hype??

About the Product:

Packaging: The colossal khol comes in the classic packaging, yellow background with a turquoise touch to it, which makes it look all cute and gives the summer/spring touch. 

Pigmentation: The color of this khol is a pretty turquoise, which is so apt for summer/spring. The second that I swatched this I fell in love with it! It has very minute shimmer to it, which doesn’t hurt the eyes. I have sensitive eyes and I was a lil worried about any irritation that might be caused, but I was happy to notice that I didn’t have any problem and it was all good!
Staying Power: This stayed pretty well on my eyes… It stayed for a good 7-8 hours on the upper lash line after which its faded a lil. which is kinda good considering the sweaty summers. Although it needs a setting powder on the lower lashline. 
Price: 249/-
Make up Looks with the Maybelline Colossal Khol 
The dramatic look and Simple-Liner look.

Pros:
A very pretty Summer/spring shade.
Minute shimmer, which adds to the sheen.
Waterproof, so no sweaty smudges!
Stayed on my upper lashline for 7-8 hrs nearly.
smooth application, its not hard.. glides on easy!
didn’t irritate my eyes.

Cons:
Since its soft, you need to be careful while applying it.
doesn’t stay too long on the lower lashline, needs a setting powder.
Needs 2-3 swipes for a better color pay off.

Rating: 4/5.

Recommendation: This is a very pretty shade for this summer!! This color will suit almost every skin tone, This can be used for a dramatic night look or a simple day time eyeliner look. You can play a lot of looks with this!! This stays on for a good amount of time and gives a sheen look. Highly recommended!
