April Favourites | 2024


Remember MONTHLY FAVOURITES posts? They used to be my favourite :)

Okay! Firstly, my Number One April Favourite is......

Baby Reindeer - on Netflix. 
WOW!!! Too good! This is an absolutely brilliant dark comedy TV show. It made me laugh like crazy (the best laughs I've had in a while, really), it made me uneasy & tense & furious, it broke my heart a little - or a lot, I don't know - and it soothed something in me in the end. I'm rewatching it.
WARNING: Disturbing scenes though. It went from hilarious to dark real quick.


On to the beauty products I've been using & loving for months - I thought I'd do products that are easily available in India this time....

Why Return A ZARA Dress?


I rarely return stuff that I purchase online, and that's because it usually takes me 2 weeks to over a month to click checkout after adding them to cart or favourites - which means I only purchase things after they've caused me sleepless nights....and I can't live without them any longer!

Btw, I almost kept this dress, just because I didn't want to go through the return drama with ZARA after they didn't refund my money for months last year - for my son's product, not mine. 


Why I returned this dress?

It looks cheap. Gingham print on a such a flimsy polyester fabric is just nah-ah.

The worst part is the even cheaper-looking lining. It's actually in reverse and not stitched on to the seams, which makes it ride up underneath + it sticks to your skin...ugh!

It's just not worth  ₹3590! The audacity.

Look at the lining.....

Matching Skincare To Your Outfit?


It's a YES from me!

It somehow re-arranges my scattered thoughts into a right angle. Some people will get it, some won't.

It doesn't happen often, so it's nice when sometimes something gives you a sense of harmony & makes your routine feel a bit unusual and special.

I always do pink colour, so I like that this time it's a springy bright yellow! I mean, how bright is this sweater top?! I was immediately drawn to it at the store - I kept walking away from it, but it kept looking at me!

Lakmē Sunstick


Lakmē is killing it with all these New Launches!!!

This time, it's the kind I have been collecting - a stick product.

About:

9 to 5 Sun Expert Invisible Sunstick
With SPF 50+ PA++++

This sunstick gives sun protection upto 98% UVB rays and glides on in a completely invisible finish.
Matte finish
Suitable for all skin types, dermatologically tested.
It is tinted. Yay! ← For me, this is the USP right here.

Maybelline PLAY Tattoo Liquid Eyeliners


Time to PLAY with coloured liquid eyeliners! That too from our favourite drugstore brand with their signature fuss-free 'TATTOO' stamp that you can get really creative with - as I did with my swatches below.

You can also apply them on the tip of your lashes as well, if that's the drama you want....or you accidentally got them on your already mascara-ed lashes.

Here, I have Shake (Lilac) & Punch (Fuchsia Pink)



Lakme Powerplay Velvet Crème Blush & Highlighter


Lakmē's newest launches have been on my radar for a while, and these two were on shelves even before the official promos. I'd swatched them at a Lifestyle when I wasn't ready to buy anything ;p


This range is enriched with Jojoba Oil & Vitamin E. They are, as they claim, velvety smooth and blend easily.


Powerplay Velvet Crème Blush: Available in 2 shades - Soft Coral & Pink Rose

Powerplay Velvet Crème Highlighter: Available in 2 shades - Copper Crush & Sultry Gold


I got Soft Coral & Copper Crush.....

Saw some products while window shopping last week, and I CAN'T GET THEM OUT OF MY MIND!!!
