Let’s be really honest, I’m not a fan of Lakme lipsticks at all, until I found the 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lipsticks. That was by far my first and best encounter from entire Lakme, beautiful shades with amazing formula. And after that, recently I found something interesting from Lakme again, the Matte Revolution Lip Color lipsticks from the Lakme Absolute range. Right from the launch I know I had to try these lipsticks, omg they were so tempting in fact. I waited for some time to check for some swatches from bigger influencers so that I invest in them because I kid you not, these are quite expensive ones for a drugstore brand like Lakme. Anyways in this post, I’ll talk about some of the shades I picked from the Lakme Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color lipsticks.
Well, I’ll admit that it was Faces Canada’s lip crayons that I totally adored back then, and I dunno if any other brand had lip crayons (like the matte ones) two-three years back. Although they had very limited shades, they slowly started building up their game. If you haven’t checked that review, here it is – Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayons. And now after a long time, I think Faces is back again with another adorable launch, in fact a low-key launch I should say because hardly no one had a word that Faces launched them. And any new updates I always get through Nykaa, which happened to be like India’s Sephora! After a thorough research about the shades and the formula, I finally – finally ended up picking 4 shades from the Weightless Matte Finish Lipsticks. They also have the Creme Finish Lipsticks, which I wasn’t that much into, coz I love matte lippies. In this post, I’ll be talking about these lipsticks.
Seeing some eco-friendly brands is just a satisfaction, I tell you! Did you know that plastic is one of the major causes of today’s pollution, and that India is one of the top contributors of it. We, at some point are devastated with the havoc being caused, but at the same time in a situation where we have been used to all this in our life. A little change has to happen somewhere – and that can start from you! As far as me being a blogger, receiving PR packages and looking at all the plastic packaging I had to get through, it is sometimes disappointing. But I’m glad there are some brands, especially Indie brands pushing to save environment by the three R’s method; you know the ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’. One of them being Soapworks India. Or should I actually say- the first brand that I’ve come across that uses ZERO PLASTIC PACKAGING, ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS and moreover (phew! this is so heartwarming) Soapworks India trains some amazing SUPER-HUMANS to work alongside with them, and kid me not every time I receive something from Soapworks I always have this warm feeling just looking at it, adoring it and thinking of who might have made my product to make me shine. God Bless them OMG! Anyways let’s get into the mainstream now.

Ever tried all possible at-home remedies for curing your dark elbows and knees, which in turn only put you down. Well, it always happens with me, and I keep wondering why don’t home remedies don’t work for me. There are some parts of the body which needs some extra TLC. Right in time came this special gift, the Organic Riot Spotlight Cream which was sent by Nykaa team. And I have been using it quite regularly since then for my dry and rough elbows, because that’s my most problematic area. In this post, I will talk about how this special cream fared.
I have been accumulating Nicka K products for quite some time now, and I should admit that they have some great quality products which cater all skin types. I’ll try to review rest of the products that I bought out from Nicka K, but first lemme start off with these HD Concealers which at first shot looks like the LA Girl Pro HD Concealers; I’d agree on that but let’s also agree that that’s pretty much a decent kind of packaging and stuff for just $2.99 babe. And I’ll also admit that I hardly found any kind of complete swatch party of all the 16-17 shades of them; like why Nicka K? Anyways, I had to only get two shades from the entire range and probably hope to get few more later, but in this post I’ll be talking about these Nicka K HD Concealers.
Only oily skin girls will know the struggle of self producing tons of oils every now and then, and not all skincare products suiting them! Well, I have oily combination skin and it’s seasonal; my skin alters with every season and goes through the respective struggles. In this post, I’ll be talking about the simple evening/night CTM routine using the PLUM GOODNESS GREEN TEA range for you oily skin girls out there which will not only keep your greasy skin issues at bay but also balances the skin and nourishes it.
It’s been quite some tie that Benefit Cosmetics has been in India, but the big news is that now the MINI’s have also just landed in the market! Yes, quite a good news to people who cannot afford the full sized products, the mini versions are a definite-buy. At least, I got my hands on few of them recently. Benefit Cosmetics is the most raved – absolutely raved for its amazing brow products and how could not get them when the little ones are here.
But I just had three to show, lol. I was always astonished seeing the NYX Lip Lingerie swatches on every single girl, but lately I’ve realized not all shades are meant for me (in the dusky Indian skin tone context). Although I love the beautiful lip hugging formula, there are only few shades which really stole my heart and here I have the shades that I own. Read the full review of few of the shades of these NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks.
If you’ve read my Love from South Korea – THE SKIN HOUSE Skincare products, I did receive a bunch of products from them and I will be reviewing one of the in-house brand product – The Skin House Vital Bright Serum in this post. Frankly speaking, this serum came just right in time when all I wanted is a change in my skincare; all thanks to The Skin House! And this particular serum was the most interesting thing I have ever seen. Let’s see what it is…
