NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, Abu Dhabi : Review & Swatch

So, the liquid lipstick rage is still going on super strong. And I happen to love it a lot! My liquid matte lipstick collection is growing bigger with each passing day.
For example : "It goes like this.....Hmmm, I have a bright pink lipstick, but do I have it in the matte liquid form? NO! Ooh, I should to get it asap!" :D

Guide to Building Your Makeup Kit : Part II

Previously I had covered the basic makeup products needed for a makeup kit, at a beginner level. Lots of you loved the post, thank you so much! If you haven't read it yet, go check it out HERE
So, what's the next step once you have the basics in place? Taking your kit to the next level. 

I have always believed that it is pointless just going to a store and hoarding everything in one go. Rather, build your collection slowly, adding products one by one. That way you will only buy what you really require and actually use them.

Anyway, enough about the gyaan. What do you need to add to your collection you ask? Here you go!

Beginner's Guide to Makeup Essentials!

I have received quite a few requests for this post over the past few months, so here you go! Back in the day when I was just starting out with makeup, I was quite clueless as to what to buy and what to skip. As a result I got a lot of stuff which wasn't really needed, atleast at the beginner's level. Now that I know a bit better, here's a post and I hope it helps you out to build your starter kit :)

As We Like It : Volume I #TheLady'sEdit

So you have probably read the previous post of this series here. My friend was shocked to see the number of things I usually travel with. In my opinion I travelled with bare minimum essentials.
The only fair way to settle this once and for all was to sit and compare our respective travel kits. To be honest, I secrectly feared that I might actually lose to him..but Boy, Oh Boy! as he lay down his essentials, I couldn't stop grinning :P

As We Like It : Volume I - #GentlemanSays

There was a time, long ago, the late 80s the early 90s, when family vacations were once a year events. You went wherever your parents took you and it was great! A new place, new people, a whole new world was added to the globe in your mind.

Also, your dad and the male members of the family came back battle hardened, 3-4 shades darker, with a sloppy head of hair, sloppier, drier and knottier than usual, something which required probably a month of generous hair oil rationing to return to its before vacation sloppy. That’s how we rolled!

The female section was another story altogether! They looked (and still do), it was as if they had never moved an inch from home, never saw the same sun nor the same dust and grime and sand that we males did.

Soulflower Happy Feet Bath Soap : Review

I love a bit of feet pamper every now and then. Nothing beats a good professional pedicure of course, but then who has got time for that everytime? So, I always stock up on some essentials for some pampering at home itself. I will list them at the end of the post :)

Anyway, so Smriti had sent me a lovely birthday hamper and in it was the Soulflower Happy Feet Bath Soap. The bar looked so interesting that I could not wait to use it right away.

Random Facts About Me : Swati's Edition

So, I debated if I should write this post or not. For a long time I believed that no one would really want to know random things having to do with me. The idea of doing this post came again last week and I had to pen it down. I thought it might make a fun read for anyone who would like to know me a little more & it was a nice change for me from writing all the review posts.
I have always enjoyed reading such posts about my favourite content creators.

Please do mention some random things about yourself in the comments below and let us get to know each other better, shall we? :)

Luxa Derme Foot Peeling & Exfoliating Mask : Review

A while back when I was contacted by a brand called LuxaDerma about trying out their Foot Peeling & Exfoliating Mask, I went like Foot Peeling whaaaaaaaaaaat???? I just couldn't wrap my head around a foot peeling mask and for the first few days I was quite skeptical about trying it out. I was pleasantly surprised when I did try it out though.

Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick, 1 2 3 Soleil : Review & LOTD

Coral! What an incredibly pretty color. Don't you think so too? A good coral lip is one of my weaknesses (not to mention a good pink and a rich red..I have many weaknesses okay!)

So, I had not tried anything from Bourjois so far, pretty weird right? The brand has some really good products. The other day I thought I might as well get something from them. I landed with the Shine Edition Lipstick in 1,2,3 Soleil....(not very surprised. I am quite a bit into lip colors off late)

Maybelline BabyLips, Cherry Kiss : Review & Swatch

Baby Lips! Will I ever get tired of using it? Most probably not. It is most defintely one of the best tinted lip balms available in the market as of now. The varieties and colors you can choose from is great. I have finished tubes after tubes of these. Even the non-tinted ones are a favourite of mine.
Let's take a look into Cherry Kiss today :)

Bobbi Brown Blush, Tawny : Review & Swatches

A while back Divya from The Conscience Fund had an awesome blog sale, and out of all the pretty things I was tempted to buy, I got 2 blushes. Who doesn't like a good blush eh? 
I hadn't tried anything from Bobbi Brown so far...I know I know, I am a beauty blogger...but don't judge me ok? There's always a first time and it couldn't be better than starting out with Tawny! :)

Body Herbals Sensual Blackcurrant and Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub : Review

Having skin that's dry perennially means that I have to spend some extra time taking care of it. Regular exfoliation and intensive moisturization has become a part of my weekly routine ever since I've discovered the benefits of it. Now that my awareness has increased, I've started keeping my eye out for products that make this task easier.

Sugar scrubs are widely popular as a means of keeping body skin healthy. Personally, I love them over other varieties, because there's something oddly satisfying about seeing the crystals melt onto my skin and ensuring that their job is complete!

I remember when Swati had purchased her huge jar of The Caribbean Collection Coconut & Lime sugar scrub we were all so excited and impressed, but somehow it took so long for me to buy myself my own! Here's the one I chose..

Scholl Refreshing Foot Soak : Review

You know sometimes when you come back home after a long day of work/shopping and you have been walking and running around all day?  Your feet are quivering due to tiredness? And all you want to do is just put them up and rest? 
You know how parents used to tell us to soak our legs in some warm salt water before? Remember doing that growing up? It did take the pain to a much lower level, didn't it? 
This is stepping up the process to a new level! 
I have been using the Scholl Refreshing Foot Soak for quite some years now (on and off) and while there are quite a few fancy foot soaks out there, I come back to this one the most.
