NEW! Lakmé 9to5 Insta Light


Yay! We have a cream highlighter from Lakmé! =)
Lakmé 9to5 Insta Light is a fragrant crème with a unique combination of ingredients like mineralized powders and luminizing pearls that ensure an instant glow on the skin. Crafted especially to suit Indian skintones, it seamlessly blends like a crème without making your skin sticky and sets like a powder, giving skin a matte look.


Price:

Rs.79 for 20gms
Rs.149 for 40gms


So glad it's available in 2 sizes!


Sets like a powder?
Sounds like my kind of highlighter! =)

Perfect Liquid Highlighter ~ Affordable & Benefit High Beam Dupe!

Ooh, like Benefit High Beam!
That's my first thought when I chanced on this amazing highlighter ~ Faces Metaliglow Highlighter in shade #02. It's the type of highlighter that you can go overboard with and it still won't make you look like a disco ball - because there are no chunky shiny particles in it. It's just p-e-r-f-e-c-t for every day & every occasion, because it subtly illuminates skin. Really, it was such a pleasant surprise that I liked it A LOT from the very first time it grazed my cheek bones!

How To Use: Apply 3-4 dots on top of your cheekbones, blend them & then dust some loose powder on top. Apply some on your brow bones, nose bridge & cupid's bow too if you want to enhance them.

Faces Metaliglow 02 Swatch ~ I think this shade is called Pink Pearl. It does have a pinkish tint, which disappears when you blend it out.

Etude House XOXO Minnie Collection Photos

Finally I took Etude House XOXO Minnie Collection out of the box! Although I look at them almost everyday since they arrived. Mr.CZ complained several times about the box always being on the dining table, and I gave the same reply: "Because I have to click!" I think he had been waiting for this post....hehe.

I have not used most of the products, except for two of them. I can't bring myself to using the other 5, coz I like them looking all new and shiny. I'll play the "collector" card again this time. No swatches, but hope you'll also like just looking at them =D

Benefit Rockateur Box O' Powder Photos, Swatches


Do you remember The Rock? How he made raising one eyebrow so hip? I tried and I tried and tried some more, but I was never able to raise only one eyebrow. My college friend could do it perfectly, which made me even more displeased with my stubborn forehead. Even now I can't do it. I'm holding a mirror and doing it right now. I always feel I've nailed it, but when I look in the mirror ^_^
The Rock we'll be talking about today might also make you want to raise one eyebrow.....

Bourjois Java Rice Powder ~ Iconic Product In 1879!

BOURJOIS REINVENTS ITS ICONIC JAVA RICE POWDER FROM 1879!
Bourjois celebrated its 150th Anniversary this year. Wow! They reinvented a vintage edition of its first historical best-seller - 2 million sold each year in the early 20th century!
Java Rice Powder:
~ A delicately scented feather-light powder that lights up and smoothes complexion in one step. ~ Its radiant and velvety finish immediately creates a youthful glow.
~ One translucent shade is universal and lights up all skin tones.
 I adore the packaging. At first, I thought the white was a sticker, but it's not. It's printed on.

How To: Blush, Bronzer, Highlighter

Hi, hi! Sorry for not posting for days. This was supposed to be up yesterday, but editing took longer. There was a false eyelash mishap that ruined most of the pics, sigh. Long story short: lash glue and mascara stuck together and clumped the lashes, I ignored, camera didn't.
This is one of the most requested tutorials! So many ladies want the JLo glow. For me personally, it's not a must-do, because I came from Delhi, where my face was always prone to sweating because of the heat. Now that I'm in cold Scotland, I do it quite often, and I see the why it's so sought-after. It does make your skin look more.....posh. Oh yes, Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham) is also famous for her glowy cheeks.

Products I Used:
Bronzer ~ Benefit Hoola. Matte bronzer is always better.
Blush ~ MAC Bite Of An Apple. This was a Limited Edition blush.
Highlighter ~ MAC Soft And Gentle Mineralize Skinfinish. It's better to pick a highlighter that is more pearlescent than glittery. If you're using a liquid highlighter, just apply 3-5 tiny dots, and blend with finger.
Rest of the makeup: 
Face: I applied MUFE HD Foundation over Lakmé CC Cream, and they didn't agree very well, hence the spots.
Eyes: I used pinks & purples from the Sleek i-Divine Candy Palette. Swatches here
Lipstick here is MAC Betty Bright from Archie's Girls Collection. Shown here

NEW! Benefit Rockateur Blush

I like to collect these Benefit Boxed Powders (see my collection here), and after a long time I'm liking a new addition - Rockateur
"A rose gold blush that gives a famously provocative flush."


Price ~ £23.50  | Rs.2168.
Launching in UK on August 22nd '13. 
I can imagine myself at Debenhams... awaiting its arrival... garland in hands.

In India, Benefit is available at Sephora, Select Citywalk Mall, New Delhi.

Make-up Haul from Edinburgh ~ MAC, Maybelline, Bourjois

I apologize for disappearing for days. I was in Edinburgh, and there was no wi-fi in our hotel- Travelodge, to be exact. Tiny & congested room it was, but it was located in the heart of the capital- 5 to 20 minutes walk to all temptations. Because of all the walking and store-hopping, I had to specially go into Superdrug to get a pair of Scholl Party Feet Gel Cushions for the balls of my feet. OMG, I could have easily passed out from the pain! I wasn't even wearing very high heels. BUT all's forgotten now ;)
*I will update this post with all the prices shortly, coz I have to search for the receipts.  
I told you there's no MAC counter here in Dundee, so it was nice to be in a MAC store after over a month. I picked up 3 items:
  • MAC Patisserie Lipstick ~ I finally got another tube of my holy grail nude lipstick. Swatches here.
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft And Gentle ~ I've decided to start using highlighters more and try out the glowy bronzey look, and this is so gorgeous!
  • MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Frozen Violet ~ I adore shimmery paint pots and cream shadows, so I had to have this. 
Maybelline have some new stuff in their counters too. I got these from Superdrug:
  • Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Shocking Coral 910 ~ You can never have too many coral lippies!
  • Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Hot Plum 906 ~ I thought this would be a dupe for MAC Daddy's Little Girl Lipstick, but its more intense and darker. It's a hot seller, coz there were only 1-2 left in both Boots & Superdrug counters. The last one in Superdrug was broken, so I had to run to Boots the next day.
  • Maybelline SuperStay Lipstick in Beige For Good 610 ~ Just a beige shade. I want to wear it under a clear gloss, and complete my glowy bronzey look =D
  • Maybelline Dream Sun Triple Bronzing Powder in 01 Blonde/Blonde ~ There's another darker trio in Brunette, as well.
  • Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate 70 ~ It's an intense metallic plum shade. 
My favorites from this haul- just because there look so YUM!
  • Bourjois Maxi Delight Bronzer in 02 Olive/Tanned Skin ~ I shopped in such a rush that I didn't notice the other lighter shade 01 Light/Medium shade, so I might go exchange this. 
  • Bourjois Bronzing Primer ~ Look.At.That! It looks like chocolate, it smells like chocolate. It is rumored to be a dupe for Chanel Soleil De Tan Chanel , a bronzing makeup base that's caused quite a stir among makeup lovers. since both brands are owned by the same company, it could be true. I will let you know what I think about it later.
Bourjois has launched a lot of new cute products ~ A Bronzing BB Cream, Caviar Manicure Toppings in 3 shades, Travel-sized Volume Glamour Max Holidays Mascaras in 4 colors. All available in Boots.
Garnier Moisture Match Mattifying Fresh Cream for Combination to Oily Skin ~ I noticed this Green Tea Extract moisturizer by Garnier, and couldn't resist grabbing it since I'm craving green tea products. There are 4 other types- for dry skin, dull skin, normal/dry skin, dry/very dry skin. For those in the UK, I see they are sending Free Samples through their website here

Just a few pics using my Nokia Lumia 820 phone. I didn't use my camera at all there....
Nightclub bathroom pic =) I'm loving my pink panda couple phone case I ordered from Ebay

Hope you all had a fun weekend!
Until tomorrow.....

MAC Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish Swatches

Because this is a Limited Edition product, I thought I'd post quick swatches in case some of you are considering getting it. I will post a review with a face swatch sometime. 
MAC Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish is one of MAC's most popular & hyped limited edition products. Whenever it comes out, it sells out very very quickly. I think that's the main reason I wanted to get it. I wanted to see for myself what the big deal is, you know. It recently came out with MAC Après Chic Collection (for the third time, I think?)

Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter Review, Swatches, LOTD

I'm not into highlighters. That's because my oily face is already a natural, self-made, highlighter. 
But Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter looked good enough to eat, I couldn't resist! Plus, I have a weakness for duos & powders with interesting designs on them. If I ever design one myself, it would have a high heel shoe with a bow embossed on it. I have an ugly sketch of it in Paint- which I don't really know how to use.
About:
Luxurious ultra pearlised Face Highlighter duo, with its micro-fine velvet pearls which melt into your skin for a naturally luminous glow.
  • Enriched with Vitamin E
  • Dermatologically tested
How/Where To Apply: You can use your finger to apply on top of your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, cupid's bow, and brow bone. It can also be applied on your clavicles & décolletage. If I'm using a brush, I use Sigma F35 Tapered Highlighter Brush
