MY VERDICT-

I was sent this box as a PR sample but the brand gave me my sweet time to test and try the products before writing this post. As all of you know my reviews are absolutely honest and I don’t mind bashing big brands and products if I have a problem with them.

All the products are very impressive. They are all 100% natural products. I did not have any adverse reactions to any of the products. The oils are great. They are absolutely pure and very effective. I love the coconut oil and almond oil. I have incorporated the night cream and the olive oil in my daily skin care routines. I would definitely continue using most of these products once winters are over.

Another good thing about this box is the price. There is no way in hell that you could buy all these amazing products for 1999. It’s so affordable. I just love this box would suggest people to try it.

I hope you find the review helpful. Don’t forget to stay connected on my social media accounts.

Greenberry Organics Mudash 3 in 1- Mask, Scrub and Cleanser- Review

Hey Guys,

Today I am talking about  a product that has great multitasking capabilities. It’s the monsoon season and we need products like this for our skin care. Those rain drops do make our heart happy but our skin is a sensitive topic. The Mudash 3 in 1 by Greenberry organics is a mask, scrub and cleanser all in 1. BeautyPlus_20170702102637_save.jpg

About Greenberry Organics (from their website):-

The Man Soap Co. is an initiative by an XLRI graduate and a certified cosmetologist in bringing the best from around the globe to the Indian consumers. Greenberry Organics – The Man Soap Co. creates a unique combination of ancient Ayurveda-inspired remedies with modern scientific techniques to create products which are free from harmful fillers (Chemicals) available at dirt cheap prices in the market.
 We constantly strive to excel with each LOT of our products which are tested on human volunteers and never on Animals. Each of our LOTS is deliberately made in smaller batch sizes to ensure that the customers get the freshest the fastest. Enjoy the nature’s best remedies only made better with science.
At Greenberry organics we are striving hard to make a difference among standard and conventional production methods filled with irregularities, animal abuse and unfair remuneration.

About Mudash 3 in 1:-

IMG_5898.JPG

It’s a mask, scrub and cleanser in one. It contains 100% natural ingredients. If your skin is tired and dull this is your product. It is a real  jar of happiness. Also being paraben and sulphate free it is very skin friendly.

Well, now is that savoury moment. Do you also use the words “problem” and “skin” in the same sentence and that too with a negative tone! It’s time we change that with our 3 in 1 formula that has cleanser, scrubber and mask packed in one. The biggest WOW factor use it daily as a cleanser, twice as a scrubber or right before those happening weekends as a mask and your skin will thank you every minute for this super pampering care. Product is free from Silicons, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, DEA, TEA, Phthalates, Phosphates, Artificial fillers.

Price and Quantity :-

Rs 595 for 100 Gms

Ingredients:-

Aqua Kaolin, China Clay, Zinc Oxide, Bentonite Powder, Turmeric Powder, Isopropyl Myristate, Kaolin Clay , Glycerine , Aqua , Aloe Vera Extracts , Activated Charcoal, Phenoxy Ethanol , Xanthan Gum, Tea Tree Extracts, Jojoba oil, Clove oil, Vitamin C, Fragrance, Vitamin E.IMG_5877.JPGimg_5888.jpg

How To Apply:-

Use the product on a slightly damp face as a mask, apply all over the face liberally (Avoid direct contact with eyes, mouth and nostrils). Let the product stay for 10-15 minutes. Once the product dries out, slightly damp the face with Greenberry Organics Miracle Face Mist or with normal cold water. Wash  the product off the face gently and slowly. Feel the difference.IMG_5885.JPGIMG_5882.JPGIMG_5889.JPG

My experience with Greenberry Organics Mud Ash 3 in 1 Face care :-

It comes in a good quality see through plastic jar. It has double lid protection, a black cap followed with a transparent cover.

The colour of the product is grey and the texture is thick and granular. It’s smell is very pleasant, that of tea tree extracts.

The monsoon season can clog your pores and do a lot of harm to that gorgeous skin. This product is a mask, cleanser and scrub in one. The tree tea extracts are excellent anti bacterial agents and the activated charcoal helps detoxify your skin. Clay also helps your skin from sagging ( and no one wants their skin to drop down with the rain drops). The granules are just of the right size to act as scrub. It helps remove all the dead and flaky skin.

Over  using the product (More than twice a week) or using a lot of quantity can cause your skin to dry out. The product has me in love with it mainly coz it worked just fine without causing any breakouts. 🙂

PROS:-

  • Nice packaging
  • Works great as a scrub, cleanser and mask
  • Cruelty free
  • Sls and paraben free
  • Made from natural ingredients
  • Removes all dead skin
  • detoxifies the skin
  • Priced well for the quantity
  • Makes the soft and supple
  • smells great

CONS:-

  • Using a lot of quantity and using it for more than 3 minutes can dry out your skin

In conclusion I love this product and am very glad to share it with my family.

New Launch – Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lips- ORANGE CANDY (Review and Swatches)

Lakme has recently collaborated with Masaba Gupta ( Fashion designer) to launch a new range of Lakme’s classic lip pout collection – Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lips. The collection includes 10 matte lipsticks. The collection screams Masaba’s signature with the candy prints and a mix of bright and nude colors. The price of the Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lips is Rs.750. The available shades in the collection are:-

  1. Cherry Bite
  2. Cotton Candy
  3. Hot Bubble Pink
  4. Hot Chocolate
  5. Hot Pink Queen
  6. Orange Candy
  7. Roll A Cola
  8. Smoky Red
  9. Sugar n Spice
  10. Caramel Toffeemasaba12.jpg

Review And Swatches- ORANGE CANDY

The lipsticks shades are all very bright and attractive, so it was very hard to choose a shade. I wanted to try the texture of the lipstick before buying them all, therefore I ended up buying Orange Candy.

Packaging:-

The packaging is very bright, funky and attractive. The lipstick crayon comes in a plastic tube with a rotating retractor. PSX_20170626_131638.jpgPSX_20170626_131608.jpg

Colour:-

As the name suggests Orange Candy is a bright ORANGE shade. PSX_20170626_131537.jpg

Texture:-

The lipstick is named Lakme Absolute Lip Pouts Matte Masaba Lips but this is absolutely MISLEADING. The lipsticks are NOT matte, its more of a creme lipstick. It is also not waterproof or smudge-proof.PSX_20170626_131513.jpg

My Opinion:-

I wasn’t paid to write this review and its a totally honest opinion. It is very disappointing to see big brands collaborating with famous designers creating these highly advertised collections which are just lies and false claims. If I am paying 750 Rs for a matte lipstick, I expect to get a matte lipstick. This is a creme lipstick not a matte one. Also it doesn’t last that long and gets smudged easily.

Pros:-

  • Nice Pacakging
  • Easily available
  • Available in vibrant 10 shades
  • Available in a easy rotating retractable tube

Cons:-

  • Not matte
  • Not waterproof
  • Not smudge-proof
  • Not long lasting
  • expensive
  • smells weird
  • Falsely advertised

To conclude I would like to say I am very much disappointed in the promotion campaign of the product and the product itself. It is not right for big brands to falsely advertise their products.

Follow me on Instagram and Facebook for my honest opinions and reviews.

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.

smytten.jpg PSX_20170421_131009

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.

IMG_2292.JPG

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.

Follow me on Instagram and Facebook. I love hearing from you guys so don’t forget to leave a comment. You can also send me emails (barkha.vyas06@gmail.com)

MARCH FAVOURITES 2017!!

HOLA,

With the temperatures rising suddenly, march turned out to be the most uncomfortable month ever. But there are a few good things that came out of the month of march. Skin care and makeup excites me and I love sharing my passion with you guys.

Here are a few of the products that I really enjoyed this month. I hope you will try these too and share your thoughts with me.

  1. LANCOME Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate:-

As soon as we girls hit our mid twenties, the anti aging battle begins. When it comes to high end brands, LANCOME has always been my favourite. I trust their products and have never been afraid to try them. Advanced Genifique boosts signs of youthfulness and helps skin’s recovery during the day and night.

the serum is suitable for all skin types for women of multiple ethnicities and ages. I have been using the concentrate for about an year now and have absolutely been loving it. It is expensive (Rs 5,982.39/- for 30 ml) but worth every penny.

To  read a complete review of this product click here.wp-1464847174235.jpgwp-1464845025288.jpg2. Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Bold Metals Collection, Essentials Brush Kit, 3 Brushes set:-

Everyone is aware that Real Techniques makes the best affordable makeup tools. Their Bold Metals collection is amazing. The synthetic bristles are super soft and compactly packed, they look great and do an amazing job.

The bold collection is quite expensive as compared to the other makeup brushes by Real Techniques Sam and Nic collection but trust me, they are worth stretching your wallet a little bit more. They  look beautiful  and do a great job of making you look beautiful 🙂IMG_2235.JPGIMG_2236.JPG

3. Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss- shade 30:-

For their price these lipsticks really surprised me. The KateXRimmel collection is just what we all love. Its affordable, the packaging is chic and the quality is amazing.

I love berry shades so it will not come as a surprise when I  say my favourite LAsting Finish lipstick By Kate is the shade 30. Its a deep berry shade with glossy finish. The lipstick lasts for a good 7-8  hours without you having to touch up and is prices at just Rs275.

They are also easily available in India on Nykaa.IMG_2210IMG_2213.JPGIMG_2216.JPGIMG_2211.JPG

4. Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation:-

This is my  favourite foundation ever. I  have used many high end foundations but The Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation is just what I always go back to. If you have this, you do not have to spend all that extra cash for flawless coverage.

Priced at just around Rs 700 for 30 ml of product, this is a medium coverage foundation is just the best. It comes with SPF 20 for sun protection. If you wear makeup daily I would seriously urge you to try this affordable but amazing product.IMG_2221.JPGIMG_2222.JPG

5. Aryanveda Anti Wrinkle Gel Treatment Pen:-

I bought this product from the Nykaa Christmas sale and have been using it since then. I must say that Aryanveda is one skincare brand that I have really grown fond of. I have tried 6 different products from Aryanveda and have loved each and everyone of them.

With the stressful life and unhealthy diet it is quite easy to for your skin to age faster than you. On one of my skin care examinations my Skin care specialist pointed out the wrinkles being formed around my eyes. Well that wasn’t easy to see and was sad to notice how badly I had been ignoring my skin.

After using the Anti Wrinkle Gel  by Aryanveda for 4 months, I can confidently say that it does work. It has tightened the skin around my eyes and mouth and buying it is also not am hassle.

It is  priced at Rs 250 on Nykaa.068IMG_2206.JPG

6. Maybelline COLORsensational Lip Liner:-

The Maybelline COLORsensational Lip Liner was an impulse buy as I was just looking for a nude lip liner. This lip liner helps keep your lipstick in place and prevents it from smudging. It contains a bit of glitter and i don’t usually like glitter on my lips but the shade 150 STELLAR PINK looks quite stunning with a bit of glitter.

The shade is nude so it looks can easily be covered up with any other lip color.

To buy this same lip liner click here.IMG_2224.JPGIMG_2225.JPGIMG_2227.JPG

7. TONI & GUY heat protection mist:-

I hate boring and the thing that is capable of getting boring the fastest is you hair. I try a lot of new hairstyles and most of them require me using hair styling tools. Constant exposure to heat can take a heavy toll on the quality of your hair, so heat protection is a must.

Toni & Guy launched their hair products after their success in the salon business. Their heat protection mist is my most used product followed by their textured sea salt spray. The 150 ml spray bottle comes with very attractive packaging. The locking mechanism is super cool and helps the liquid from spilling out.

Buy this spray by clicking here.IMG_2209.JPGIMG_2219.JPG

These are my favs for March. Hope you will try them and enjoy them ass much as I did. Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these products.

Do keep in touch through Instagram and Facebook. Email me your suggestions at barkha.vyas06@gmail.com

Hope you guys have an amazing new month.

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

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

NEW Nykaa Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner- Super Black 01- FIRST IMPRESSION & REVIEW

Hello Everyone,

Just a few months ago Nykaa.com had launched their matte nailpaints and matte lipsticks. These products soon gained a lot of attention and were really appreciated by a lot of beauty and makeup experts. Now Nykaa has decided to expand their makeup range to EYES.

Most recently they launched their very own ‘Nykaa Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner’ in the shade Super Black 01. I am all about Kohl, eyeliners and mascaras and therefore got my hand on it as soon as possible. 🙂 Now, lets see if this product actually stands up to its claims.079

PRODUCT CLAIMS:-

    Well, hello pretty eyes! A bold release that packs a punch in just one swipe, Nykaa’s Black Magic Eyeliner is all you need to get your best eyes on.

FROM WHERE TO BUY IT:-

http://www.nykaa.com

MY FIRST IMPRESSION AND REVIEW:-

The eyeliner comes in a red colored paper box which is quite attractive and cool. The body of the eyeliner itself is black in color and matte in texture. The good part about the body is that the wand handle is very big and therefore easy to use. Coming to the bristles they are thin, soft and neatly packed. The thin bristles glide beautifully on your lids and are perfect for creating a neat winged eyeliner. It is water resistant as claimed by Nykaa but not waterproof. However it doesn’t last for 10 hours and starts cracking and disappearing from the edges in around 3-4 hours. It is smudge-proof but when rubbed a little aggressively it starts to crack from here and there.

Finally, I would like to say that for a decent price Nykaa has managed to do a more than decent job and I am very impressed by Nykaa Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner.IMG_1972.JPGIMG_1979.JPGIMG_1985.JPGIMG_1987.JPGIMG_2043 - Copy.JPG

  • Needs touchups after every 3-4 hours
