Lotus Herbals Colour Dew Nail Enamel, Luscious Berry : Review

When it comes to metallics, we normally tend to think of 3- gold, silver and bronze. Some of us may include a copper. But as Professor Trelaweny would say, "Broaden your minds, my dears, and allow your eyes to see past the mundane!" (The number of times I have read the Harry Potter books!) Time to try some unusual hues. Which brings me to todays colour Luscious Berry.

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil Prunella : Review

We all agree that a basic black eye pencil is a must have for every girl. (The Amway Kajal Coal is my favourite and Smriti loves her Colossal). But let us not stop there. Don't you just love adding a pop of colour to your eyes somedays without having to use eyeshadows. This is where all those fun coloured eye pencils come in and the Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil in Prunella is the most gorgeous purple I have come across..ever!

Scholl Rough Skin Remover : Review

On a trip to the pharmacy a few months back (to stock up on some essential tablets) I noticed the Scholl foot care range happily sitting on one of their shelves. I happily gave in to the temptation (whaaat? They called out to me okay :P) and bought the Foot and Nail cream and this Rough Skin Remover. According to me they (walking daily in the sun and running around in the hospital does weird stuff to your feet you know) would be perfect for some self pampering :) :D

Faces Canada Eye shadow Brush: Review

Hello all!
I just got back from Allahabad thursday night after attending a big fat Indian wedding...(in case you were wondering why there weren't any posts since the past few days) and all of yesterday was spent catching up on lost sleep. You know how weddings many events and such little sleep. By the end of it you are left with raccoon eyes and aching feet :P Although it is an entirely different scene when the wedding events are in full swing..SO MUCH FUN! Dressing up, catching up with relatives, the songs, the dancing and the food! 

Anyway, enough blabbering for now. Today I am going to rave about the Faces Canada eyeshadow brush which I have been using since over a year now. I carried 2 of these to the wedding and I was all sorted.  If I were to sum up this review in one line (which I am not so don't get too happy :P), I would just tell you all to close your eyes and just get this! It is amazing!

Dove Indulgent Nourishment Body Lotion : Review

I know winters are saying hello when my skin starts becoming dry and feel stretchy. So while running about in college, I needed an effective body lotion that I could carry in my bag all day long and this Dove one caught my fancy. Lets see how it fared.

Loreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum : Review

I started using hair serums when I was in college. Hostel life and hectic schedules take a toll on you. I didn't get enough time to oil my hair and they were being washed very frequently. It didn't take my hair long to reduce to half its thickness and become frizzy and dry. It was then that I needed some extra products to take care of whatever I had left. I tried on a few serums before I found this one I love so much now.

Biotique Bio Almond Overnight Therapy Lip Balm : Review

Winter is setting in and I can totally see its effects on me. Dry stretchy skin, hair issues and chapped lips to get started. So my hunt for perfect winter products has begun. I am sure you must be stocking up too. This brings me to my review today. I wanted a heavy duty lip balm which would work magic on my chapped lips during the cold days. And when I came across the Biotique Overnight Therapy Lip Balm, I thought what could be better? Slather this on your lips at night and *swoosh* (that's the wand waving sound if I wasn't clear) wake up to baby soft lips.

Adidas for Women Happy Game Perfumed Deo : Review

I'm always on the lookout for new deodorants while shopping. While I'm not too fond of the over flowery smelling ones, once in a while I'm lucky enough to find a real gem. Happy Game is one such find that I picked up just on a whim, after having a good experience with the Natural Vitality variant.

Man, Woman and Child : Erich Segal

Erich Segal never fails to impress me with most of his stories. He is one author who can bring out emotions so well. If you have been following our reviews here, you will know how much I love Doctors (reviewed here). Man Woman and Child is another book of his that would be in my favourites list.

DIY: Rope Container

See, I have been searching for over 4 months now for a bin to keep in my room. Something inconspicuous and not too pricey (all I wanted was a small one to throw used cotton swabs, bits of paper etc..). And I hunted lots of places for it, only to find bright plastic ones with flashy flowers and what not printed on it or corporate looking steel ones that were a tad too big for my purpose. I finally gave up today and made myself one today. After getting frustrated you find ways to improvise. I found my inspiration on Pinterest :)
15 minutes and you are done. Seriously! (atleast if your container is not too big).

Colorbar Lip Pot in Warm Me Up : Review

Hello all!
Sharing a short quick review and swatches of the Colorbar Lip Pot Warm Me Up today (I quite like the name...maybe since I am usually always feeling cold). Anyway, this was one of our gifts to mom on her anniversary last year, along with a small Fabindia skincare hamper. She was always looking out for a neutral everyday wear lip colour and when we saw this we had to pick it for her. (It is another story that we shamelessly borrow it most of the time from her since it is a great colour...that is one of the advantages of gifting stuff to moms, they let you borrow :D)
