The Instax Mini 7s....and why we are addicted to it!

A while back, we were invited by Fujifilm to witness the launch of their new Instax Mini7s and the Instax Mini8 Bundle Pack.

The event itself was a super fun one and we walked back home with the new Instax 7s to test and try. Shortly afterwards, exams came around and I wasn't able to give the camera a proper go. 
I finally took it out last month and have not been able to stop using it ever since! Here's why:

Cargo Blush,Tonga : Review

I love blog sales! Which beauty lover does not? You get to try new brands and products without investing toooo much money. 
I had never heard of Cargo Cosmetics before, and Divya from The Conscience Fund was the sweetest ever and threw this in along with our other purchases from her blog sale. 

The fact that I have reached for this blush almost ever since I have got it, is proof enough of how much I am loving it already!

A tea lover's tryst with Tea Treasure...!

Not many people know this about us, but Swati is an ardent coffee lover while I worship tea.

Tea for me is not just a treat for the taste buds, it holds great sentimental value as well. Evening chai is a family ritual, and I've been known to accompany my mother in drinking 3-4 cups in a day!

Although at home we love the quintessential chai, I've broadened my horizon and learnt to appreciate the wide variety of teas the world has to offer. I especially love Twinnings Earl Grey and Lemon & Ginger, and I'm lusting after berry flavoured teas.

While searching for good quality herbal teas available in India, I stumbled across Tea Treasure, a website dedicated to fulfilling all your tea needs while guaranteeing to make the whole experience a deeply satisfying one. Needless to say my happiness knew no bounds and I immediately knew I had to give it a try!

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer, Stellar : Review

When it comes to lips, I usually never stray from nudes.

It's not just the profession's demand, but also a matter of convenience. Having a few different toned MLBB shades in my collection makes it easy to pull together any look, no worries!

However, every now and then I like to do a complete U turn and sport a bright lip, be it a special occasion or just to run an errand! It's good to shake thing up, right?

And that's when beauties like Stellar take the limelight. And with that crazy pigmentation, and even crazier neon tinge, it's hard to keep Stellar away from attention... believe me.

Kama Ayurveda Pure Lavender Water : Review

One of the first skincare products I was introduced to by my mother was rose water, and ever since the Fab India steam distilled rose water was the only toner / face mist in my stash. I still think it's one of the better budget rosewaters available in our market and will repurchase or recommend it without a thought.

However, Swati always raved about the Kama Ayurveda pure rosewater being so fragrant, so luxurious, that I gave in to the greed and ordered for myself the Lavender variant (to justify the new purchase, two different flowers means separate benefits right?)

Real Techniques Powder Brush : Review

Even if you have the best of makeup, it is very important to have the right tools to apply them. Don't you all agree?
And while there are lovely brushes available (I have many on my wishlist) most of them are often quite expensive, unfortunately. And someday (when I am quite a makeup pro, I might get them). But for now, all I need are good quality brushes that are priced well....that way I can build my collection you see :)

When it comes to buying makeup brushes, Real Techniques is mostly what I reach out for without hesitation.

We have already reviewed their Stippling Brush, Expert Face Brush and Miracle Complexion Sponge in depth previously. Obviously, if you read the previous posts, you will know by now that we at CnD really love these brushes!
Adding to my collection, I got their Powder Brush a few months back and obviously I like it a lot!

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara : Review

When it comes to mascaras, I generally tend to like the Maybelline ones. 
My first mascara was the Hypercurl one, I quickly upgraded to Colossal and when I tried out the Falsies...well, that was love! No matter which mascara I am testing/trying, I will always have a tube of Falsies in my stash! 

Even the Falsies Big Eyes was a good one, especially with a smaller wand for the lower lashes. 
Unfortunately though, I did not like the Magnum Barbie one that much and went back to my trusted Falsies. 

But when they came out with the Falsies Push Up Drama, I was super hopeful, afterall, it was from the Falsies family...!

SoulFlower Coldpressed Rosehip Carrier Oil : Review

Oils are my new thing. I 'discovered' them quite late, but late is better than never!

When all the beauty world was taken by storm by facial oils, I was happily sleeping under a rock. Then I randomly stumbled onto the Extraordinary Boosting Elixir by L'Oreal and got curious. After the first application, I was a convert. I do not think I will ever let facial oils out of my sight ever again. Double emphasis! I've looked into it quite a bit and a post about oils and different skin types is mulling in the back of my mind right now, but for now let me introduce you to this little bottle of goodness :)
