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.

April favorites :)

Hello Everyone,

I am enjoying the sh*t out of summers. Chuski, swimming, ice-creams, mangoes and watermelons… I am just loving it all. Enough said about the season’s favorites, 😛 lets get talking about my favorite skin care and makeup products for the month of April.

  1. NYX Full Throttle Shadow Palette- Bossy :-

NYX has 4 shades available in the Full Throttle Shadow Palette, but Bossy is my favorite. It contains four pigment-packed shadows in the tones of pink and purple. These palettes are small and compact therefore very easy to travel with. They are super pigmented and you can create multiple looks with it.

I like to create a purple cut crease with a pink gradation on my lids.  It  looks great and is definitely eye catchy. The safe bet is that we can never doubt the quality and packaging of NYX products.

IMG_2278 - CopyIMG_2279.JPGIMG_2282.JPG

2. PAC Cosmetics Eyelashes :-

PAC Cosmetics is one drugstore brand that has managed to impress me the most. There prices, quality and packaging are great. They are also easily accessible. I have loved their brushes,  makeup blending sponges and mascaras. Lashes are the most recent of my purchases from PAC and well, they are damn good.

Priced at just Rs 165 they are the most affordable lashes ever. They have a huge range of falseies to choose from. With these lashes you are set for any possible makeup look.

IMG_2284IMG_2286.JPG

3. Smytten:-

Smytten is a website where in you can buy and try beauty and makeup products from the best premium brands in India. I have been using the smytten app since a long time. Over the period of time they have sent me many samples and I have shopped a great deal of stuff from them.

The reason smytten is making it in my favorites this month is because of gorgeous offers they had during their Easter sale. The offers were great and I ended up saving a ton of  money. Another great thing is that after every shopping I get many samples 🙂 As they say it I am smytten by this application.

4. Colourpop Ultra Matte Lipstick in the shade Embellish:-

I am all about dark vampy shades of lipstick these days and we can all trust the quality of colourpop lipsticks. The shade EMBELLISH is a beautiful dark brown shade. It looks great when paired with neutral eyes.

I love the colour brown and lipsticks, so its just hard to resist when you combine the two I have a few lip swatches on my instagram.  Click here to take a look.

IMG_2293.JPGIMG_2295.JPGIMG_2296.JPG

5. Batiste Dry Shampoo:-

Summers are accompanied by a lot of sweating. With the routines we follow its practically impossible to wash our hair daily. Also the scorching sun results in the release of loads of natural oil and sweat.

The travel size Batiste Dry shampoo bottles have been my savior. I keep one in my purse and whenever I feel a lot of oil in my hair, I just spray  it on. The dry shampoo works extremely well and the best product invented for a lazy chic like me 😛

IMG_2142.JPG

6. Spawake Moisture Fresh BB Cream:-

Spawake is a brand that offers a range of skin care products which are developed from natural sea weeds. I recently tried their Spawake Moisture Fresh BB Cream Natural Glow. It is made from a sea mineral moisture formula with a delightfully lightweight texture. It spreads smoothly over skin. BB Cream contains SPF 25/PA++ that corrects your skin tone.

I hope you will give these products a try. I am telling you, they are worth your time, effort and money.

Do let me know if you have tried and of them.

January Favourites 2017!!

Hey Guys,

I know most of us have already screwed up our new year resolutions. If you haven’t three cheers to you 🙂 My two resolutions were to gain some weight and travel a lot more. Lets just say I have managed to loose a few pounds and have not even stepped into my balcony. So ya, I have failed big time.

Lets talk about the good things that I have discovered and come to love this new year. Here are my January Favourites.

1. Bath and Body Works French Lavender And Honey Body wash:-

This Body wash is simply divine. It contains Shea Butter, Vitamin C and Aloe Vera.

It provides luxuriously rich lather.

This amazing product from Bath and Body works leaves my skin feeling irresistably soft and beautifully fragranced.img_1996img_1994

2. The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner:-

This is my favourite toner so far. It is alcohol free toner with shots of vitamin E protection.

It is a clear, odorless liquid and is suitable for all skin types.

The bottle is of 200 ml and will last you for a good 4-5 months.img_2091

3. Combat Boots:-

All the girls will totally get me when I say that I am crazy about shoes. My mom thinks I have some kind of a weird addiction because I cannot stop buying them :p

These Combat Boots are my fashion favourite for this month. They go with almost all of my outfits, plus they are so warm 🙂

They are a great buy as they are super stylish and super comfy.IMG_2103.JPG

4. Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid eyeliner in shade ELECTRO SHOCK:-

I am that person who would not walk out of her house without an eyeliner on. Hell, I sometimes apply dramatic cat eye liner and roll at home in my pajamas.

But coloured eyeliners was a territory I was always afraid to step in. This Electric blue eyeliner has stolen my heart. I love it to bits.

The formula is so nice that I ended up picking up the same eyeliner in 2 more shades. Looking forward to try them on.img_2094img_2096

5. Colourpop Cosmetics Blush in the shade Never Been Kissed:-

Colourpop is a brand that you will totally get addicted to. I bought quite a few products from colourpop and after using them I am hooked to their website.

This Super Shock Cheeks blush is a light pink shade with orange undertones. Its perfect for fair skin tone.

From the name of the product (Never Been Kissed) to the packaging everything is just so quirky, fun and addictive.img_2019img_2032

6.  Colourpop Cosmetics Lippie Stix in the shade Leather:-

Its a no brainer that another colourpop product has made it to my favourites list.

This matte lip stick is dark purple in colour, Matte in finish and looks gorgeous.

I find the Lippie stix by colourpop to be the greatest idea ever. The packaging is just so perfect. The design of the bullet is on point (I can apply the lipstick without a mirror).

The shade Leather is a major beauty trend right now and let me tell you girlfriends, I am totally killing it 😉img_2099IMG_2101.JPGIMG_2015.JPG

7. Fresho! Signature Dehydrated Candid fruit (Fruit and Nuts):-

Its time for the snacks. Sleeping and munching are two things I do the best. I am so good at these two activities that instead of calling them hobbies I consider them my talents.

I work late into the night and was always snacking on unhealthy but very tasty stuff like potato chips, chocolates, ice creams and Cheetos. I bought this packet of dehydrated nuts and fruits to start snacking healthy and I am hooked.

They are yummy and healthy. To be honest  I do fish out the apricots and the cranberries but that is the way we humans behave 😀img_2086

That is all with my favourite stuff from the month of January. I urge you to try each and every product in this list as I  guarantee you will love them.

If you have tried any of these products do let me know your experience in the comments below. Also don’t forget to like and follow my blog.

I will see you soon with some more fun stuff. Until then, Stay healthy and stay stylish.

Love- Barkha

SUGAR Cosmetics Stroke Of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl 01 Back to Black- Swatches and Review

Hello Everyone,

There is something about Sugar cosmetics, as soon as they launch a product I just have to go ahead and try it. They started out with their lip crayons and have not disappointed me so far. Just a few months ago SUGAR cosmetics launched their eye makeup range. I had heard a great deal about their heavy duty kohl, but I don’t believe anything till I have tried it myself. So, here is my experience with the SUGAR cosmetics Stroke of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl 01 Back To Black.

Product Description:

It’s a waterproof kohl pencil with intense black colour and soft  creamy formulation. Its wax-based formula spreads evenly and lasts for up to 8 hours. It is free of mineral oil, paraffin, preservatives, volatile cyclomethicones (D4, D5, D6) and animal derived ingredients.

Ingredients:

Iron Oxides, Black 2, Mica, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Dimethicone, Synthetic Wax, Silica, Stearyl Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Trimethylsiloxysilicate/Dimethiconol Crosspolymer, Octadecene, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Isoceteth-10

How to apply:

Gently rim your lower and upper lash lines with this creamy Kohl. Open your eyes wide for precise application.

Price:

Rs 499/- for 1.2 g and it comes with a free sharpener.

You can buy it from https://in.sugarcosmetics.com/products/stroke-of-genius-heavy-duty-kohl

009.JPG011

My Experience with SUGAR cosmetics Stroke of Genius Heavy Duty Kohl 01 Back To Black:

I will start by saying that I am really enjoying using this kohl. It comes in an attractive and fun cardboard packaging. There is a sharper to sharpen the tip as and when required. The tip is good for 4-5 uses before you having to sharpen it.

It is super pigmented. A single swipe gives you deep black colour. The formula is very soft and creamy. The smoothness of this kohl is unbelievable. It stays on for good 6-7 hours. It is waterproof and you need a good quantity of makeup remover to remove it. Although, it is not smudge-proof as claimed by the brand. It starts to smudge at the corners of your eyes after 2 hours.

014.JPG012.JPG021 - Copy.JPG

PSX_20161130_225925.jpg

Pros :

  • Very affordable
  • Extremely black in colour
  • Creamy and smooth formulation
  • long lasting
  • waterproof
  • comes with its own sharper
  • easily available

Cons:

  • Requires sharpening
  • Not smudge-proof

Would I suggest it to others?
