New In My Brush Cleaning Kit : PAC Instant Brush Cleanser

I have wanted an instant brush cleanser for the longest time. I mean, how awesome would it be to be doing your makeup, clean your brush in a jiffy and use the same brush again in that very moment? It also meant that I would not require like 10 eye brushes, I could do with just 2 or 3. 

For a long time, the only one available was by MAC and I wasn't ready to spend a bomb on that one. But I found this one by PAC recently and it was all that I could have ever wanted, within a reasonable price!

The Lazy Girl's Guide to Fabulous Brows!

Back in my teenage days, when women were threading their eyebrows as thin as death, my mother never let me thread them at all. On top of that I used to apply castor oil on them every now and then. End result? I had thick dark brows. And while I desperately wanted them to be threaded and shaped like everyone else was doing, I am so thankful that I was not allowed to!! 

Bold natural brows are back in trend and how! And they are here to stay.
There is nothing better than a woman with thick full eyebrows, so girls, keep those tweezers down! 

Today, I am talking about the basics you would need to make your eyebrow look on fleek! Read on!

So I Finally Tried Palazzos : OOTD !

Curios and Dreams has been up and running for over 4 years now, and yet we had not done any OOTDs so far. Why so? 
Well, firstly because Smriti and I stay in different cities, away from home. You can see how getting photos clicked would be an issue. 
Secondly, I am a huge camera phobic!! I love clicking photos and could do it all day. But put me in front of a camera and I get extremely uncomfortable, give weird expressions and in general just want to run far far away! 
So much for OOTDs! *sigh*

Anyway, I was finally made to try palazzos a while back (I was convinced I wouldn't look good in them...short girl problems!) and my co-blogger Ashish, finally convinced me (read - pestered me enough) to do an outfit post. So here I am! 

This is my 1st outfit post, so naturally I am quite nervous about your thoughts. Be kind, ok? :)

L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pink Vernis, Sonam : Review & NOTD

Somehow, most things I tend to like get discontinued! Are you one of those as well?
Imagine the frustration, when you come across a perfect color, one you would repurchase again and again only to know that the one you have will probably be the last one.

This is how it is with the L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pink Vernis collection, especially the Sonam Kapoor variant! I think the collection has been discontinued (correct me if I am wrong) and it is out of stock online almost everywhere! Sigh

I purchased a bottle of this, my mother liked the color so much that I asked her to keep it. Shortly afterwards, I realised that I needed it in my life, and went on such a hunt to get it!
You have no idea how happy I am to have found it ( I think I managed to get hold of it from Amazon at last).

You've already taken a peek into Swati's travel bag, and it's one of the most popular posts on the blog! Elder sisters are always a role model and so I decided to dedicate a post to my bag as well.

Elder sisters are also always more efficient, so while she had split her travel bag into Makeup, Skincare, and Tools, and also a bonus Weekend edition! I'm going to be lazy and showcase it all at once 😛

Hey presto!

Nykaa Nude Matte Nail Enamel, Nutcracker Dreams : Review, NOTD

Nykaa has been rolling out new collections one after the other, and I am sure that their nail polishes are one of the most popular products. 
We at C&D quite love them as well, and have reviewed some of the matte shades from the original collection here and here. Then they launced the Nude Matte collection and tempted us further. 
Credit must also be given to Krupa from Ishtyle Awhile who swatched it on Insta stories and I could not resist any more. So here is Nutcracker Dreams for you :)
