My favorites from Deborah Milano

1. Deborah Milano Love My Lashes Mascara Volume:-

I love mascaras. They are my lifeline, I can’t walk out of my house without slapping some mascara on. This mascara does wonders for my lashes. It is a voluminous mascara and will make your lashes look bigger and more glamorous. I have a lot of black mascaras and was getting bored with them so, tried this brown one and realised how brown compliments my skin tone better than the black one.

It comes enriched with natural and synthetic and acacia gum for proper adhesion. Furthermore, the wavy bristle tips help in even distribution. It is priced at Rs 450.

2. Deborah Milano Extra LipStick:-

We have all tried to achieve the perfect 3 D ombre lips and have failed  many times. This limited edition lipstick was designed to create the ultra cool trend. It comes in 12 shades and I am the proud owner of the shade number 10 Rouge Noir.

The lipstick comes with a sponge tip applicator which helps produces a three-dimensional matte look. It is a very pigmented lipstick in matte texture. Enriched with minerals and plant-based waxes, the advanced formula glides on easily and precisely, and will take you through the whole day. It is Priced at Rs 950

3. Deborah Milano 24 Ore  long-lasting lip pencil:-

Lip pencils are a must have for every women. I find lip pencils better than lipsticks as they are more handy and easier to use. The Deborah Milano 24ORE Long Lasting Lip Pencil comes in a retractable design. It is a non transferable, smudge-proof lip color.

These lip pencils come in 8 shades. I am going to swatch number 02 (Vivid Red) and number 04 (Pink Cyclamen) for you. They are priced at Rs 595 each.

JUVIA’S PLACE ‘THE SAHARAN’ PALETTE: REVIEWS AND SWATCHES

Hello everyone,

Today I am going to talk about Juvia’s place ‘The Saharan’ Palette. It was launched last year and is priced at $28.00. IMG_0049.JPG

ABOUT THE PALETTE and INGREDIENTS:-wp-image-285992061png.png

THE PACKAGING:-

The Packaging is a lot similar to the other Juvia’s Place palettes. It’s a cardboard palette with pans of eye-shadows spread out within it. The front of the palette is red in color with mint trims.

IMG_0046.JPG

THE INSPIRATION:-

The vibrant and lively shades are inspired by the Wodaabe festivities of the Fulani culture. At the end of September the Wodaabe people gather together and the young men dress up in elaborate costumes and makeup and perform songs and dances to impress the marriageable women.IMG_0051.JPG

THE SHADES:-

The amount of product in the palette is 18g/ .63oz. This palette contains 12 eye-shadows; 6 Metallic shades, 2 Satin shades and 4 Matte shades. IMG_0052.JPG

MY EXPERIENCE:-

I just fell in love with the palette. Its beautiful!! All the shades are extremely pigmented. The matte Shades (Chad, Sokoto, Jamila and Katsina) are very smooth and not at all chalky.

The Metallic shades (Fula, Senegal, Kia, Wodaabe, Bororo, Iman) are breathtaking and very shimmery.

The Satin shades (Lulu, Zoya) are silky and had very little amount of fall outs.

I created this look using the shades Chad, Sokoto, Bororo, Wadaabe and Zoya.

MY VERDICT:-

I would recommend everyone to invest in this palette. This is a beauty and a must have. Some of the shades like Katsina and Zoya are not that visible on Indian skin tone but the other matte and metallic foils are just amazing. The formula is one of the best on the market, with all shades being very buttery and highly pigmented. on the top of all this, I think the palette is very decently priced.

Do follow me on Instagram and Facebook for more swatches and beauty posts.

Do follow my blog and show some love ❤ I will see you guys soon with more exciting stuff. Till then stay happy and stylish.

Let’s Patch Things up-Part 2

In my last post Lets Patch things up- part 1, I wrote about the latest trend of badges, patches, brooches and pins and how to style your clothing using this trend. This post is on styling accessories and shoes using badges, patches, brooches and pins.

screenshot_2016-04-14-18-39-59-1

  1. Trendy Bags:-

Back when I was in school we use to put badges on our backpack for the cool kids effect. Back then there were not many choices when it came to badges and patches. Smiley faces in round shape were easily available. Later came the badges with our favourite superhero emblems and TV stars (I remember owning a few Hannha Montana badges) but the shape was still round.

Now with the wide variety of designs and shapes being available, decorating your backpack is super easy. Big brands are embracing the patch trend and decorating their purses, totes, pouches, slings and clutches too.

Brands like Karl Lagerfeld and Gucci have  also been using patches and badges lately to stay on trend and make their bags unique.

Screenshot_2016-04-17-09-47-33-1.png

2. Caps/ Beanies/Hats:-

80s hair and head accessories have had a major fashion influence. Bikers and sports fan have always been seen rocking patches on their caps. But now its not just limited to bikers and sports fans or caps.

Putting 2 or 3 pins on a beanie is a great way to style this up.  You can also sew on a few patches on your favorite hat to match your outfit or location.pilled-up6c366f77f17ed0ccc2a02598278687db

3. Shoes:-

Patches can be put on any footwear – from boots to bellies and from heels to flats.

DIY your old pair of loafers or sneakers by sewing on some fun patches. Your boots can be given a whole new look by loading them with pins. For example, you can put the GAME OVER patch on your shoes for a great effect.tendencia-parches-zapatillas-renzo-costa-blogScreenshot_2016-04-17-10-28-54-1.png

So, I hope this post helps you embrace and own this trend.

February favourites 2017

Hey Everyone,

Its the beginning of a new month, that means its time for me to share my absolute favourite products of the previous month 🙂

February was a month of new launches. A lot of brands released some amazing products. So, makeup and skin care departments is stocked with a great deal of stuff to try on.

The best thing about all the products mentioned below is that they are very affordable and easily available.2017-03-06_17.32.52.jpg

1.PAC Cosmetics Big Eyes Magical Mascara :-

This dual wand mascara has become my current obsession. I am addicted to it. The mascara comes with 2 wands on its either ends. One is a normal thick wand, which is resembles the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara. The other wand is a thin and perfect for your lower lash line.

Its great to see these Indian brands coming up with such good quality and affordable makeup. PAC cosmetics has really surprised me their recent launches and I am looking forward to try them all.img_2151IMG_2161.JPG

2. Pins and Patches from Ginger:-

In my previous blog post I talked about the recent trend of pins, patches, badges and brooches. Lifestyle stores included many sets of pins and patches in their latest collection and of course a bought quite a few of them. 🙂

These pins are marked at the price of Rs 199 for a set of three. Its always cool to mix and match them to create your own style and who does not want to stay on trend.img_2122

3. Kama Ayurveda Pure Rose water:-

I have been using this skin care delight for a few months now.  Rose water is the best natural toner known to mankind. Kama Ayurveda very cleverly have taken advantage of this fact and placed some distilled rose water in a spray on bottle.

Another great thing about this product is that it comes in a travel size bottle. Whenever you feel fatigued just spray on some rose water and you will feel refreshed instantly. Trust me guys, I have tried it and it works. I also mix it with my face pack for great results.IMG_2125.JPGIMG_2130.JPG

4. L.A girl Pro conceal HD high definition concealer:-

OH MY GOD. This is  the best concealer ever. This is not one of those hyped products that turn out to be good for nothing. All the beauty gurus swear about it.

This concealer has a brush at the end which makes the application and blending very easy.  It is Crease-resistant, has opaque coverage in a creamy yet lightweight texture.

The best part about it is that its easy available on Nykaa and amazon and is very affordable.IMG_2163.JPGIMG_2170.JPG

5. B Blunt High Definition Curl Defining Leave-In Cream :-

Curling my hair have always been a problem for me. My hair were always a frizzy mess and the curls never stayed in place. The B Blunt Curl leave-in cream changed it all. It enhances curls & waves and also tames frizz.

The very cute pink bottle with a pump just makes things more attractive and convenient. I have been using this leave-in for the last 2 weeks. The nozzle has a lock system, so it’s travel friendly and does not release a lot of product.IMG_2183.JPGIMG_2189.JPG

6. NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in the shade BLACK CHERRY:-

I remember those times when dark red shades were only for grannies. Now, berries are the bold new thing. This NYX extra creamy lipstick has become my go to favourite. The lipstick lasts for around 12 hours and the formulation is super creamy. IMG_2131.JPGIMG_2132.JPGIMG_2135.JPG

This is it!! These are my favourites from the month of feb. Do let me know in the comments if you have tried any of them.

10 Things you need to stay stylish in winters of 2017

Hola Everyone,

A very Happy New Year to all of you. My resolutions for this year are quite simple. Like 90% of the people I have decided to go to the gym regularly but, instead of loosing weight I am planning on gaining some. I also plan on traveling a lot and therefore you are going to see a lot more travel blogs from me. The last resolution is to follow every upcoming style and fashion trend.

So, keeping in mind my last resolution I made a list of few things that would help me stay fashionable in the winters of 2017. I am sharing my list with you guys and hope you too will find it helpful.

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO STAY STYLISH IN WINTERS OF 2017

  1. Flared jeans :- Yes they are back. The bell bottoms from the 90s are back in fashion and fashionistas all over the world have been spotted wearing flared jeans this season. From Kendell Jenner to Kangana Ranaut, it’s all over the globe.Cropped-Flare-Cover.jpg
  2. Knee high boots:- They are a classic winter must have. These gorgeous high boots are mainly used to fulfill two purposes. First, to keep you covered and secondly, to increase your sex appeal. When worn with slacks or a pencil skirt, knee-high boots are totally office-appropriate and can be party ready when worn with a mini skirt or shorts.knee-high
  3. Ankle boots:- A heel ankle boot is the best way to pick up your jeans, tapered trousers, a flippy printed dress, or winter shorts and tights a notch while still maintaining the tough and rugged feel.fashion-2014-12-04-dolce-vita-daytona-lace-up-booties-main.jpg
  4. Midi coats:- Midi coats are the thing this season. Not only do they keep you warm but it will also elevate your favorite jeans-and-sweater outfit and give you ultra-chic coverage over a dress. Midi coats are the most comfortable and stylish option when it comes to layering.capes-cape-coats-chic-street-style-1
  5. Classic black high neck:-This season hails the return of the classic, cozy silhouette that not only keeps us warm but also serves as an easy layering piece to wear on its own or bundled under a coat, cropped jacket or a shawl. They go along very well with dresses, long sweaters and skirts. They also bring an edge to your entire look and also keep you warm.high neck.jpg
  6. Sweater dress:- Sweater dresses are mainly worn during the fall but they are a huge trend this winters. You can pair them up with any possible footwear and look super chic. They go with knee length boots, ankle length boots, lace up combat boots, running shoes, leggings, stockings.. literally everything.

THREE WAYS TO STYLE A LONG MAXI SIDE SLIT TOP!!

Hey everyone,
I bought this cool Long maxi side slit top from FAB ALLEY and I simply love how versatile it is. You can just go crazy styling this top.

In this post I’m going to style this top in three different ways. So, let’s get going…(before I start, I would like to let all of you know that this post is not in collaboration with any brand)

1) AS A TOP-

In this look I paired the top with simple denim shorts that I bought from VERO MODA. I chose to wear a pair of sequence sneakers with it. To complete the look I wore a simple thin beaded necklace. This is a great look for a brunch or a movie or just a fun day out with friends.

Here are the details of the first look:-
Top- FAB ALLEY
Shorts- VERO MODA
Shoes- MAX FASHION INDIA
Necklace – LIFESTYLE

2) AS A DRESS-

In this look I simply made the top look like a belt by wearing a thin waist belt over the top. If the slit is too high for you, you can always use safety pins.
This dress can be paired with heels to give it a night gown feel. As you can add in some bling to boost your swag.

Here are the details of my second look:-
Dress- FAB ALLEY
Heels – JABONG
Necklace – BLING LANE
BELT- VERO MODA

3) AS A SKIRT-

Wear another top to cover the upper portion and use the lower portion as a long side slit maxi dress. I have accessoried this look with a scarf from accessorize. I tied the scarf around my neck in the form of a bow. This is a perfect date look.

Here are the details of my third look:-
Top- H&M
Skirt- FAB ALLEY
Scarf- ACCESSORIZE
Heels- JABONG

My favourite date Look !!

Hey everyone,

It’s never just dinner when you going to meet someone you are trying to impress. It is the second date when you want to be fabulous but not look like u r trying to hard. In that case go for this particular look!

image

So, here is how to play it cool!!

Dress:-

Wear a short dress, preferably black!! If you wear a Gaun it will be trying to hard. Don’t make it formal. Keep it as casual as possible. Black is the perfect choice of color as it is good for every occasion and makes everyone look perfect.

This is a little black dress is from CODE by lifestyle!!

image

Shoes:-

Wear Heels!!! A girl looks elegant, stylish, tall and invisible in heel. In order to play it cool don’t forget you are on a date and you are there to make a statement. Black or nude heels would be perfect. You can also wear red heels if you are planning on wearing red accessories.

image

Accessories:-

You want to be the one doing all the talking not your over the top accessories. Remember you are playing it cool. Wear a statement necklace or a pair of statement earrings. Wearing both a necklace and earrings can be a bad idea as it will shift all the attention to your accessories instead of your face.
This chunky bead necklace is from Accessorize.

image

Makeup:-

The makeup depends on the location of your date. Don’t forget to carry your compact and lipstick in your bag.
With this particular look I would never miss my bright red lipstick.
One of my favourite lipsticks is MAYBELLINE REBEL BOUQUET in shade REB04

image

And finally the thing you need to do is enjoy yourself!!! Have fun. Hope you find love!!

Hope I could be of some help and if you think the same don’t forget to leave a comment!!
