What's New & Tempting? Garnier Mineral Deodorant For Men & Women

Garnier Mineral Deodorant is a 48hr anti-perspirant with Mineralite, a naturally absorbent mineral of volcanic origin. It lets skin breathe and is quick-dry and soft to the touch

I don't know why, but I'm excited that even deodorants are going mineral now !o! 

Range for Men: 
  • Absolute Dry ~ 48hr protection even under extreme conditions of heat and stress. Has a woody masculine fragrance
  • Extreme Cool ~ Designed to give an instant cooling sensation with 48hr protection. Has an aromatic fragrance (?) lol
Range for Women:
  • Extra Care ~ For waxed and shaved skin (WooHoo! Don't you just hate it when it's hot and you can't apply anything on your underarms coz you just shaved?) Has a delicate and feminine floral fragrance
  • Absolute Dry ~ For ultimate 48hr protection under extreme conditions. Has a powder fresh fragrance.

And if you're a John Abraham fan, the pic and the video are for you ;)

These deodorants are priced at Rs.150 for 150 ml.

I'm definitely getting the Extra Care one!
Anyone else tempted by these Mineral Deodorants?

Love: The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom

Japanese Cherry Blossom has got to be my favorite TBS line. 

Body Butter

Best if you want to: Soften and condition your skin with an intense body moisturizer that lasts up to 24 hours and features a delicate floral scent.
Best for: normal skin
How it works:
  • Japanese cherry blossom extract is traditionally renowned for its soothing properties.
  • Community Trade organic soy oil is rich in essential fatty acids that repair skin’s natural barrier, restoring smoothness and suppleness.
  • Community Trade organic olive oil effectively smoothes and softens skin.


Red Hot Vs Hot Pink Lips + Revlon Colorburst Swatches

Which do you think would win in a war between Hot Pink Lips and  Red Hot Lips?

Revlon Colorburst ~ Fuchsia & True Red

I believe anybody can pull both off when it's the right shade.
Lets see what complements these two classic "will always be in" lip colors......

  2. Guava
  3. Turquoise Blue

Where To Buy Benefit & Make Up For Ever In Delhi

Just thought I'd let you girlies in Delhi know that you can get some Benefit and MUFE products here in Delhi!!! Yippee!

Today, I was doing some shopping and was very happy to see quite a few Benefit and MUFE makeup products here in Delhi and it's none other than Kunchal's. I didn't have much time to browse through everything, but here are a few products I noticed

Some Benefit Products ~ Benetint, Posie Tint (Price- Rs.2000 something) Bad Gal Lash Mascara, Smokin' Eyes (Rs.3000 something), Big Beautiful Eye Set, Eye liners,  Powderflage, 10 Bronzing & Highlighting Duo, Kitten Puff Powder...etc....

MUFE ~ Sculpting blush, Primer, Foundation, Concealer, Lipsticks, Star Powders, Some Eyeshadows and glittery stuff...etc. Nope the HD Blush I'm drooling over wasn't there....yet...hopefully.

Sorry, can't be more specific about all the products and prices. Kunchal's was so busy and there was this BIG woman with an attitude problem who wouldn't move away from the MUFE & Benefit counter! :\ when she's just looking for some Maybelline eyeliner pencils (which she thought was too expensive! Rs.200 something! Come on! Why are you in Kunchal's then woman?!!)

Hehe....boy, did she piss me off!

That's why I was in no mood to buy anything Benefit or MUFE today. Just walked out with some Bourjois & Revlon =)

Anyhoo, that's all for now peeps. Hope you're in a 'TGIF!' mood ;0)

I want the Floating (wall mounted) one actually. Hah! As if I even get to choose!

Price~ $269
Available in Black, Silver, Pink and Grey (You can check them out here)

I want it so much that I'm thinking about finding somebody here in Delhi who can make something like it for me ;p

Oh, the girly whims!!! Le sigh....

Men Central ~ Fiama Di Wills Aqua Pulse Shower Gel With A Free Swiss Army Knife

Image Source

Starting today, I thought I'd write about products for men which I think are worth a mention.
There'll be a separate section in this blog called "Men/Male Vanity Central" (or something like that =D haven't given it much thought.)

The first one is the new Fiama Di Wills Aqua Pulse Shower Gel For Men. I was very impressed with this one. It costs only Rs.120 and the free Swiss Army Knife looks almost as good as a Victorinox

Sea Minerals & Blue Lotus
The shower gel is quite nice. Smells very fresh, almost like hair gel.

Early Birthday Haul : Sigma Make-up Brushes

Hollywood Glamour Princess Grace Pink Retractable Kabuki

This is so CUTE! And SO soft!


Bourjois Volume Glamour Utra Care Mascara ~ Review & Swatch


Ultra volume for sensitive eyes

Its ultra volumising formula coats lashes from root to tip andprotects them against harsh external factors (pollution, rubbing, air conditioning).
Enriched with regenerating and nourishing cotton and sweet almond oils, it has been specially formulated for sensitive eyes.
Its brush that applies so softly thanks to its rounded shape and ultra-soft fibres, gently coats lashes to build volume without clumping.
Result: after only 3 weeks of use, lashes are visually stronger and more resistant, as if nourished from within*
*Clinical test on 22 women with sensitive eyes, of which 7 contact lens wearer

Inglot Lipstick 106 Review

Inglot Lipstick is enriched with Vitamin E and Apricot Kernel Oil. Not tested on animals and Paraben free. 

Shade 106 is a really pretty peachy coral shade.


Love Her Madly

Just a quick post: Nail polish of the week & Mac Lipglass swatch (two birds with one stone!)

Revlon Nail Enamel ~ Love Her Madly #329
Mac Dazzleglass Creme ~ Creme Allure

Have a fabulous week everybody! ;)

Another Bourjois Haul =)

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation #53

So Delicate Lip Cream ~ Rose Poudre 51 (Rs.575)
I already had 3 of these and I love them so much. When I swatched Rose Poudre at the store, I couldn't believe I chose Rose Veloute (which looks a little dull on me) over it the first time.  


Bourjois Mineral Matte Mousse Foundation Review + Face Swatch

Love it!!! It blends like a dream and lasts all day without caking and my face didn't get oily even after hours and hours. It is a matte finish but my skin doesn't feel dry at all.
It has medium coverage. It covers blemishes but not completely, it just blurs them in a way. The mousse texture feels so fluffy that even if you pile this on it won't look like you did, because it's so light and easy to blend. Amazing!

I think this will suit dry skin as well, because as I said before, it's not drying. My skin type is Combination/Dry (according to Clinique) and I do tend to get dry patches here and there, so I would recommend it to dry-skinned people.

I like it much much better than my MUFE HD Foundation

New in Bourjois.....O-M-G!!!

Rose Exclusif Gloss
A transparent lip gloss that changes into your very own pink color once it comes in contact with your lips! Depending on your pH, it can turn to a pale pink to an intense pink.
(Reminds of Too Faced Mood Swing)

Review ~ Etude House Precious Mineral Make-up Essence

Guerlain Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer Dupe?

I think look-wise that's the closest to a dupe as it can get, what do you think?

What it is:
A pre-makeup essence (moist cream + pearl-infused makeup base)
Makeup Essence promotes better adhesion of makeup by moisturizing skin and blending skin tone with coverage for a longer lasting and more natural look.


Mac Sheertone Peaches Blush Swatch & Review

This is especially for you Shivani...

Mac Peaches Blush is such a pretty pretty color! I think it will suit anybody, particularly most Indian skin tones.


A Lil' Bit of Mac & Bourjois Haul

Did a little bit of hauling today.
I went to Mac wanting 3 things from the Too Fabulous CollectionCremesheen glasses in Partial to Pink and Loud & Lovely, Ripe Peach Blush Ombre. The only thing that was available was Partial To Pink. The other two were sold out =( . I don't care so much about Ripe Peach, but Loud & Lovely! *le sigh*

Here's Partial to Pink ~I think the Cremesheen finish is the best out of all Mac lipglasses. Very creamy and glossy but not sticky. The peachy pink shade doesn't show much on my lips (which is why I needed Loud & Lovely too! Hmph!)

I got Mac Peaches Blush instead, which I tried some weeks ago but had no money left to buy it ;) (and no, I'm not allowed to use my credit cards much...hehe)

6 Tips For Long Healthy Nails

This is especially for you, HD =)

I am not going to preach what I don't practice, like eat healthy, drink lots of milk and stuff like that.
These are just tips that work for me. I have pretty strong nails already, but they chip and peel all the time. So I do the following to fight back, or in this case, to scratch back....rawwwrrr!!!


Cooling Sunscreen ~ Lotus Herbals Anti-tan Cooling Sunscreen SPF 30

What it is:
Safe Sun Absolute anti-tan gel is a medium intensity cooling sunscreen gel especially formulated for oily & combination skin. It especially protects against the long wavelength UVA rays that are the primary cause of skin darkening and tanning. It has the soothing goodness of Calendula and Vanilla extracts.
