3 Days Of Giveaway: Day #1 ~ CUTE & GIRLY (CLOSED)

Hi, everyone! Hope you're all doing good.

Finally I'm able to get this up, after procrastinating for months - okay, years! 

 I've decided to split my giveaways into 3 parts

*** This giveaway is OPEN WORLDWIDE.***

In this series of giveaways, there won't be any makeup items, because most times a lot of readers say they don't use a lot of makeup (like eyeshadow palettes). So I thought I'd put together cute, useful things that everybody would put to use. Hope you'll want them all.... and adore them when you WIN them! ;)

Here's the 1st set of Prizes:

~ Forever 21 Sleeping Cat Makeup Bag with pom pom zipper

~ H & M Pink Pom Pom Handbag Accessory ~ In this post, I asked you if you want the pom pom to be included in a giveaway and many of you said YES. I went back to get another one, but it was sold out =(, so I got something similar - it's less pink and it has gold instead of rose gold hardware, BUT it's bigger! =D

~ Romantic Rose Mirror

~ Hello Kitty Lip Balm

To participate, please fill in the Rafflecopter below:

In case you're confused, there are only 2 mandatory Rules:

1. You have to be a subscriber or follower of Indian Vanity Case via Email, GFC or Bloglovin' (all linked on the right sidebar there) 

2. Comment below telling me which is your favorite item out of these prizes.

THANK YOU for participating.

GOOD LUCK, everyone! =)



Unboxing The Pretty Box! (What's Inside The Box?)

If you missed it, we played a mystery guessing game "What's Inside The Box?"  HERE. Thank You to everyone who participated, I had fun reading all your guesses! 

LOL-ed at "Underwear" & "Maternity Panty".... hahaha! =D

 Okay, so today I'm finally revealing what's in it! Nobody guessed both the things, but 2 readers got 1 thing right! So, they are the finalists.

The answer is.....

 Cup & Kettle (or Tea Set)

2 readers guessed Cup & Saucer : Shilpa Gandotra & Sonia Rai.

Well done, ladies! =)

I had to shuffle & pick only 1 WINNER, and it is SHILPA GANDOTRA! Congrats!


What's Inside The Box? Guess & WIN A Mystery Gift! [CLOSED]

WINNER of IVC 4th Blog Anniversary Giveaway Is......

Hey Everyone, I'd just like to THANK you all who participated in my 4th Blog Anniversary Giveaway. Thanks for all the wonderful comments on how you stumbled upon my blog, I enjoyed reading each and every one of them. As always, it's not a good feeling to have to pick ONLY 1 WINNER from so many deserving readers, but *sighs*


YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick Fuchsia In Rage 19 ~ Swatches, LOTD

There are 19 shades of YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Lipsticks. If you buy all 19 at once, they'll cost you about the same price as, or less than, one Chinese Crested Dog -  a hairless dog that's won 'World's Ugliest Dog'. It's got bits of hair on the head and paws, but the rest is all skin- like human skin, they say. It's one of the most expensive pets in the world. I wouldn't call it "ugly", because I don't like that word + I have a soft corner for all dogs, but it is no doubt funny-looking. At first, I thought it's some type of goat (pic here)
 There, a little bit of Math & National Geographic. Indian Vanity Case.....Not All Make-up.
YSL Rouge Volupté Shine ~  Give in to the temptation of dazzling color. Succumb to a unique sensorial experience with extreme comfort and luminous shine.  Hyaluronic acid microspheres help seal in moisture for 8 hours of hydration. Anti-oxidants and emollients help condition and soften lips.
 Available in 19 shades. I'm showing the last one- #19 Fuchsia In Rage.


4th Blog Anniversary GIVEAWAY! Win YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick + Sleek Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette [CLOSED]

Hello! It's time for a special Giveaway again! It took me this long to announce it because I was quite confused about the prizes. I wanted to give products that you all would LOVE.
I asked in IVC Facebook Page what you all want with all your heart and soul, and the product that topped the list was Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. That was my first option too. BUT if I picked that, it'll just be one prize since it's pricey, and I wanted to give at least two (always two) products. I will surely include the NAKED 2 in my next giveaway.
After a lot of thought, I went with my instinct, and picked my most loved products.
  • YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick ~ Shade of WINNER's choice! Because I just can't get enough of them & want them ALL! So I want to gift 1 to one lucky IVC reader.
  • Sleek Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette ~ Because it's a very versatile palette, great for everyday & party looks. I've swatched it here.


Mystery Giveaway WINNER

The WINNER of the Mystery Giveaway is Poorva
Please Email Me HERE.
If I don't hear from the winner within 24 hours, I will pick another winner.
Thank You all for participating, there will be more Giveaways!


One Day In Dubai....

This was supposed to be published last night, but then I got busy, and soon it was 2 am Indian time. Actually, this post is over 2 months late! Remember?
On our way to Newcastle, we decided to stop in Dubai for a day. Mr.CZ & I both regretted that we did not extend another day, because we felt a few hours in Dubai weren't enough + we were so exhausted.
During check-in in New Delhi IGI Airport, we were told we couldn't take our luggages, until we reached Newcastle. I just managed to take out my tight jeans before parting with the bags (I was wearing comfy jeggings for the flight). So ya, one day seemed right in that moment.
I planned to change into another outfit in Dubai, but since I didn't have my luggage, I had to wear my simple comfortable flight attire the whole day. We spent the whole day at Dubai Mall. Till midnight, actually, coz the mall was opened till late that day.
Dubai was just so beautiful! It looked so....picturesque & rich. That day, the weather was so windy and a little foggy. I felt sand on my lipstick

We stayed at the Ramada Downtown Suites Hotel, which was big and roomy. It had a kitchen, a living room, a bedroom & one big bathroom.


Mystery GIVEAWAY! Guess What's In The Heart-Shaped Box.... (CLOSED)

There are some things in this cute heart-shaped box.
Hint: One word only.
Can you guess what?
One person out of all those who guessed correctly will WIN 1 product in that box. I will reveal it in a blog post on Monday.
  • Contest is Open Worldwide.  
  • Closing Date: Monday, 20th May, 2013 at 7:00 PM IST.

Good Luck! =)

*This contest is CLOSED.

Vaseline Pink Bubbly Limited Edition Lip Therapy Review & Giveaway

Every year Vaseline launches a Limited Edition lip balm. Last year it was Crème Brûlée, this year it's this one right here- Pink Bubbly. How cute is that name?! I adore the packaging too, very lingerie.
Before this was officially launched, Vaseline held a contest. They sent this tin, but with a plain unbranded lid, to selected UK beauty bloggers, asking them to design the lid & guess the name of the next Limited Edition Lip Therapy. What's most interesting was, they also sent them a few things as clues:
  • A balloon
  • A scented candle 
  • Pink Champagne Truffles in a heart-shaped box
  • A champagne flute
  • Etc.
The Winner + 1 winner's blog reader win a trip to Paris! 
So cool, right? I would have loved to design that tin, and I wouldn't have done it for Paris =)

WINNERS Of L'Oreal Paris Contest

Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone who participated. I read each & every one of your answers, both here & IVC Facebook Page.last night, and appreciate ALL of them.
Before I reveal the winning answers, let's take a look at the percentage each of the fashionistas, Bollywood sweethearts, and L'Oreal Paris Ambassadors, scored:
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan- 51%
Sonam Kapoor- 24%
Freida Pinto- 23%

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan beat Sonam & Freida put together. WOW! New mommy has really earned a lot of admiration & respect. Well-deserved, I must say, especially with all the boo-hockey she has to put up with constantly. Yes, I would have picked her too =)
And now for the winning answers! The 1st Prize Winner was an easy choice for me, but picking the 2nd Prize Winner was TOUGH! 
Drum roll......

1st PRIZE goes too.....
" Simran:
'Ash' you like it...In this case it will be "'Ash', I like It!!!" ;)
Her style, which has more misses than it gets kisses, manage to hit the 'taal' even in plain old 'Jeans' and at times makes you think 'Kuch na kaho'
Her face, so doll-like and ethereal, come rain, hail, babies or the dreaded age of 40s, make her the 'Umrao Jaan' of India
Her figure, which can make 'dhoom' and others gloom, make her more real than anyother
Her elegance, grace and confidence, leaves 'Devdas(es)' across the 'World' saying 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam'
Whether she is 'Jodha' or The 'Mistress of Spices',
The 'Bride' and bahu of the 'Sarkar' of all families of Bollywood Or at the receiving end of everyones 'Prejudice',
She inevitably leaves everyone with a "Guzaarish' for more.
Because she's worth it ;) "
