MAKEUP REVOLUTION BLUSH AND EYE SHADOW PALETTES

FullSizeRenderMakeup Revolution London Ultra Blush Palette 

Shade: All about Pink

Let me confess: I love blush. No, seriously I LOVE IT. If there’s one product that I wear every single day with or without any foundation, its blush. This is also one product that I hoard and can’t get enough off. When I saw this product in the Nykaa sale, I knew I just had to get it. Even though the palette’s name is All about pink, there are 8 lovely shades which range from pink to peach and even orange. It’s the perfect blush palette which will suit most skin tones! My first impression was that the shades were really pigmented and the pan sizes are nice and big!

Original Price: Rs. 1350

I got it for: Rs. 1013

It’s still available for Rs.1013 as of 24th October’15 on nykaa.com

Makeup Revolution London: Salvation Palette Professional Eyeshadows 

Shade: What are you waiting for?

This palette consists of 12 shimmer shades and 6 matte shades. I don’t wear too much eyeshadow and really want to start experimenting more. I know I still haven’t reached the point where I can experiment with crazy colours like bright blues, greens and yellows and so decided to buy a more everyday palette with really easy to use and wearable colours. The shades are so pigmented and I love how they’re perfect for fall/autumn. The shades range from pinkish shades, plums, champagne, golds, bronze to charcoal! I can’t comment on how long they last but would love to a do a review if you’d like!

Colorbar Perfect Match BB Beauty Balm

Shade: 002 Honey Glaze

I prefer wearing BB creams on a daily basis as compared to foundations. I am almost out of my current everyday BB cream- Loreal’s Nude Magique. That BB cream is so amazing that it has really raised my expectation levels from other products. I hadn’t read too many reviews of this colorbar product and in fact bought it only cause I have never tried anything from colorbar before! The claims of the product looked really promising and it has sf 20 plus its paraben free. I just cannot comment on how I feel about how it feels on my skin since I have not worn it yet, but will surely update you!

Price: Rs.550

 TONI&GUY Prep Heat Protection Mist

I have heard of tony&guy products quite a bite and really wanted to try them out. Luckily, even though I have coloured my hair, it hasn’t been damaged (at least that’s what it looks like). However, I do use heat on my hair and since I was out of my older heat protection spray I decided to buy this one by Toni&Guy. I really hope it works for me since the product wasn’t really too cheap for it’s size! Along with using this heat protection spray, I also use a moroccan hair serum by Organix whenever I wash my hair. If you guys want a full hair care routine, do let me know!

Original Price: Rs. 725

I bought it at: Rs. 525

It’s still available for Rs. 525 as of October 24th’15 on nykaa.com

TOPSHOP Glow (Highlighter)

Shade: Gleam

Price: 9 pounds

IMG_2109I did quite a bit of research on TOPSHOP beauty when I found out that they’re available on feelunique.com. One product that stood out in every single review I read was this highlighter called GLOW, and oh my god, now I know why. I don’t own too many highlighters and this is my third one but I am so, so glad I took the leap to try this out. It is the most stunning gold toned highliter that works amazingly for indian skin tones. When blended well, its subtle to catch light but it’s always visible in the nice way! I can see my self wearing this everyday as well as for a glam night out!

Swatches from Top to Bottom

(Note: The shades look glittery and I really really apologize for that. I did the swatches over the blended glow highlighter swatch which explains why. I am really sorry about that! The shades are in fact not weird and glittery at all.

1.  TOPSHOP Matte Lip Bullet РPlastique

It’s a beautiful mauve shade. Not really everyone’s cup of tea but I love it! I am a purple lips person and though I wouldn’t wear it on it’s own, I would probably layer with it Mac’s up the amp!

2. Fleur de Force Lip Gloss- 040 Lucky Star

It’s a beautiful red shade and even though I prefer Matte red lips, I just couldn’t stop my self from getting this! I am alsolutely obsessed with Fleur ¬†and her videos and I knew I just had to get my hands on her collection. To my surprise, though this is a lipgloss, it’s not too sticky and has an amazing vanillish scent!

3. Fleur de Force Lip Gloss- 050 Starry Night

This is MY COLOUR! If you know me you would have seen me wear berry lips every single day. Yes, in summer, winter, autumn, spring. My everyday colour is berry. I don’t really know why but I guess it suits my skin tone well. Most of my berry lipsticks are either satin or matte finishes so I had to get a gloss version to glam up things a bit!

4. Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick/ Rouge 410 Dynamic

My dad bought me this lipstick and it’s a keeper! It’s the perfect nudey pink that one could ask for. Quite surprisingly, I didn’t have an everyday nude-pink and most of my nude lip colours were brown toned! I am really excited about using this even though it’s so stunning that I want it to last for as long as possible.

5. Clinique High Impact Lip Colour Rouge Impact Р13 Flemenco

Here’s a perfect warm toned red. I have been obsessed with Loreal’s Pure Red collection and especially the shade Blake. I knew I wanted a another red shade so got my hands on this beautiful red shade which is a little pinkish and a little orangish. As you can see, I am HORRIBLE at explaining colours. This shade will really suit indian skin tones!

=If you want me to review any of these products and want more beauty related posts, please do let me know! This was a haul post where I simply shared some of my new buys to give you some ideas of what you can purchase if you’re looking for some new makeup to try out!

What’s in my bag?

Heyy guys!

This tag has been extremely popular on YouTube over the years and I can’t be more excited to upload my own What’s in my bag post! The stuff in my bag changes more or less depending on the season¬†(other than a few essential items which are always there no matter what). Here’s what’s in my bag that I have been using over the summer! {Especially during my summer vacations where I spend a lot of time exploring the city and spending long days outside}.

The bag that I have been using lately is the Louis Vuitton Never full (GM) and l absolutely adore it. I use this tote when I’m travelling as well since it can store so, so much {As the name suggests}. I must however admit that I wont carry all of this stuff just to do errands or even a night out!

What’s in the bag?

Wallet: To begin with, my wallet is one essential that I carry with me at all times. This one’s a gift from many years ago but I still can’t get enough of it. It’s the perfect size and though it’s simple, it’s got an elegant glossy finish to it which makes it look really special.

Sunglasses: One word- Cat eye. These have got to be one of my favorite pair of sunglasses. They are from Style Fiesta¬†and hence weren’t too expensive either! I love having a good versatile pair in my bag at all times and this pair definitely fits the bill!

Specs: Just like my sunglasses, I have to carry my specs at all times too. I need my specs for driving or watching television and since I can be pretty careless, I don’t like spending too much on a pair. These ones are from Dayal Opticals.

Book: No matter where I go and for how long, carrying a book is absolutely imperative. I love reading and I find some to be the best time to catch up to my wish list! I just began¬†reading Metamorphosis after having read so much about it. I must say, though I haven’t gone through, I highly recommend it! You can buy your copy here.

Portable Charger cover: My phone undoubtedly has the worst battery life ever and not having a charger with me can be extremely inconvenient for if I have to get through to anyone. Sometimes, carrying a normal charger defeats the purpose for it can get extremely tough to find a plugpoint and that’s where this portable charger¬†from Puro¬†comes into handy. It’s a really pretty¬†white and gold cover which has a battery installed within it. As soon as I put the cover on and switch on a button, my phone starts to charge! I got this one from Dubai so not sure if it’s available here in India but Amazon.in is worth checking out.

Chewing Gum: Whether it may be mint or gum, you’ll always have a pack with me. I prefer the bottle packaging way more since it’s easier to find while I’m searching for it in the bag. Oh, and it lasts longer!

Tea Bag: However strange it sounds, I find my self carrying some sort of sachet of tea or coffee. This one is the TWG Waterfruit Green tea and its SO¬†good! I’m absolutely obsessed with it and drink it every single day. Since I’m interning, I carry these in my bag for office #shameless.

Camera: Being a blogger and in fact simply having a passion for documenting things around me, I carry a camera with me wherever I go. Though I use my phone camera a lot but I do have my SLR handy whenever needed! Here, since I shot these photographs using the DSLR, I placed my cute little Instax Mini instead. I don’t carry this one everywhere I go but do like to have it to me on a date or a girl’s day out!

Earphones: If I have my phone, I have my earphones. These ones came with my phone itself and are really convenient to carry and are an absolute must when I’m travelling in the metro! Though I prefer listening to music over headphones, I don’t carry them every where I go (other than while I’m travelling or working out).

Wipes: This is one summer essential I just cant do without.These cool cucumber cleansing wipes are such a day saver. They cane be used for numerous purposes- whether it may be removing makeup on the go or simply cleansing away all the oil or dirt of a long day. They have a really nice cooling effect and feel refreshing when used in the soldering heat. They are available at New U stores.

Makeup: I do NOT carry makeup with me on a daily basis but these pack was lying in my bag since I carried it previously! One will find makeup in my bag if I know that I have a long day, followed by a long evening with no time to go back home in between. Carrying different items can be extremely inconvenient so nothing beats the Estee Lauder Travel Exclusive Makeup Kit (available at Duty Free). I just find it much easier to have all the products that I need for a simple day to night summer look in one place neatly packaged rather than creating my own travel makeup kit, which can be a time consuming process. If I am going to be carrying the kit, I would most likely also have my Maybelline Lip Gloss with since the kit comes with a dull nude lipstick that looks stunning with a gloss layered on!

Perfume: Another summer essential has got to¬†a perfume. The one currently in my bag is Dior Addict. I love the scent for it’s the perfect balance of cranberry, orange and sweet musk.The size of the bottle is really convenient to carry around too!

Sunscreen Spray: Having a sunscreen with us is extremely important especially if we are outdoors all day! I hate how most sunscreens are so sticky on the skin and so I’m glad I found the sprays in the market. This sheer body mist sunscreen pray with SPF 50 is extremely light on the skin and does the job too.

Hair brush: No one likes to be sweaty tangled hair and a hairbrush is of course a must! I really want a tangle teaser too so if you know where I can get one, please do let me know!

Mirror:¬†Though my phone has a front camera, I just love carrying this cute little ‘Bitch Please’ pocket mirror. It has a sturdy rubber lining and yes, its pink! (I got it from Happily Unmarried.)

Other items: Other things that weren’t there in this bag (SURPRISINGLY) are receipts, tons and tons of receipts. I happen to be a receipt hoarder and each time I buy some thing, I have a tendency to shove them¬†in until they there reaches a point that I can’t find anything else in the bag.

I also carry my laptop with a diary if I have to work from somewhere and have a meeting. These two things though I don’t like tagging along with me until absolutely necessary.

Next, I have a magazine or a newspaper on me to keep me entertained during the metro journeys when I don’t have the patience to enjoy my book in peace.

I love my food so one will usually see my carrying a snack. Whether it may be a ziplock pack of almonds and walnuts or a tetrapack of Soy Milk (You would definitely find this in my bag! ūüėČ ), I like keeping my self hydrated and fed throughout the day.
