The Body Shop - White Musk Sun Glow EDT

Before I start off with this review, I admit this is my first ever perfume/fragrance review and I personally don't know how to write one. Bear with me in my new found love!
Also, on a side note, I declare that I love musk; especially white musk. It isn't only TBS but any white musk fragrance picks my fancy. I love the original White Musk by TBS and sort of like the Libertine range (I love the white musk, but its too sweet for my taste!). So when Sun Glow was launched, I had to get it hands down.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick - Undressed


I was looking for a budget-buy nude lipstick and my search finished on Rimmel London's Lasting Finish in Undressed.  The name itself is suggestive enough of what color its going to turn out and I must say I am more than happy about getting this.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - Love That Red

Red speaks the color of love and although Valentine's is over and its another year until it comes back again, this color never loses its season. It is the color of every milieu.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - Love That Red
Their Super Lustrous range is famous for its extremely pigmented lipsticks. They are very, very creamy and glide on smooth with a feather-light feel. I currently have 8 of them in my stash and I adore each and every one of them.

Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme - Sheer Bare

I only just got introduced to Sally Hansen, with my first product being its Miracle Cure for nails. This is my second product by SH and I have NOT bought it. I actually received it in a beauty box subscription (Vellvette, India) and personally, this wouldn't be something I would buy for myself. 
First, I have plump and thick lips by normal standards and do not require any more inflation. Second, although I do love cinnamon on its own, I do not want it on my lips, literally making them tingly.

Diana Of London Pro Touch Concealor - Light Beige

Concealers are a life saver. They help us conceal those hideous flaws of our otherwise perfect skin which we do not want to show off to the entire world. Under eye dark circles, post pimple marks and uneven and patchy skin are so irritating and to get rid of them is a many-months-long task. 
For a quick fix, concealers come in very handy. My personal preferences are either liquid concealers or jumbo pencils. I never understood the art of applying a lipstick shaped concealer-stick. Since I ran out of my Max Factor concealer, I decided to try another brand for a change.  This is my first DOL product - Diana of London Pro Touch Concealer in Light Beige.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color - My Mahogany

The Color Sensational range by Maybelline NY has a wide variety of lipsticks for just every woman in their three distinct categories namely - Reds & Corals, Pinks & Mauves, and Nudes & Browns. Their containers are tinted accordingly which I really like.
The shade 255 My Mahogany comes in the Nudes & Browns category and is cased in a transparent brown & silver plastic container.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion

TBS has been one of my favorite brands but I'd never really tried their skin care range; it was only perfumes. Recently I was at a loss about my acne prone skin, tried various unknowns for it and still suffered from an occasional messy breakout. What I was looking for was to keep the redness in check and to deal with the post pimple marks that took forever to fade. 
And what would pick my fancy other than TBS Tea Tree's "Blemish Fade" Night Lotion? The name itself stood out to me while I fished for more perfumes. I knew immediately this is what I wanted to try now.

Bourjois Pot Blush - Tomette

Bourjois Paris has its name written down in history for its legendary pot blush. Sad to say, I bought my first Bourjois blush at the age of 21! It's like buying a prom dress when you're 50! 
I love anything orange-y coral, be it lipsticks, glosses or blushes. It brings out a lovely glow on the warm toned beauties. Initially I had plans on buying Bourjois blush in Ambre D'Or but then my mind stuck on Tomette and definitely no regrets here.

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick - Obsessed Orange

Colorbar USA has certainly raised the bar when it comes to their Velvet Matte lipstick range. The colors are true to their names - from soft nudes to bright bold lippies. And there is a wide variety to choose from for any and everybody tastes.
My foray into this range was with the Obsessed Orange shade. The craze about Orange started off last year when Pantone declared it the Color of the Year 2012. So, me being a person who had never owned a cosmetic in any shade of orange, started hunting down the best and the brightest among them and landed on this. Was this worth the buy?

Rimmel London Vinyl Gloss - Lovesick

Now who loves their lips glossy and pink - just light pink? I do. I am *not* a pink girl (at all!) but I can't resist having a light barely-there pink pout. And in Rimmel's Vinyl Gloss (Lovesick), I have found new love! 
So, off we go on a Lovesick ride!

Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm

When opting for lip balms that heal and soothe chapped, dry lips, I always return back to Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm. This is a super quick review about this lip balm. Here goes!

Remedies for Blemished Skin

Post-pimple marks and their side-effects (mentally) are very discouraging. Who doesn't dream of having flawless skin?! But the harsh environment and its polluting factors result in clogged pores, which lead to pimples and finally the irksome post-pimple marks. The sun plays its own part in damaging our skin further by darkening it gradually and gifting us sun-spots. Ugh!
When dealing with these skin problems, the first step is to invest in a good-quality cleanser. Soap-free. Hypo-allergenic. These are the two words to look for in your cleanser description. Some go looking for acne-controlling ingredients in their cleansers like Salicylic acid and Benzoyl Peroxide. I suggest you don't!

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick - Alarm

When you think of going bold with your pout, the first color that comes to mind is Red. Red is the epitome of sensuality yet it is classically beautiful! And when you finally pluck up the courage to brave a bold lip, you inadvertently remember Marilyn Monroe and the legacy she has created with that pout of hers. 

Finding the perfect red lipstick for that perfect red pout is a lifelong hunt which every woman is enduring. At present, I have about 5 various shades of red and yet I am still on the hunt for my perfect red lippie. Rimmel's Alarm was bought on one such whim. I loved the swatch I saw online and bought it soon after. Though it didn't turn out to be my HG, it sure is a great color to play with.

Maybelline Colorama Nail Polish - Coral Chic

Let me start my first proper Review post with one of my favorite coral nail polishes - that is the Maybelline Colorama in Coral Chic. I am wearing this is in my first ever post on my Blog here and so decided this was the best way to begin with reviews.
I admit I am not a big fan of pinks but this pinky coral shade is one of my absolute favorites.

Beginnings!

Today is 9th September 2013. Yes, I know you are aware of it too. But as I sit here in front of my laptop, thinking on how to begin - to really begin a new part of my life, I wonder how this would fare. I only wonder, I do not care what would actually happen in the end. All I care about is how much fun I am going to have!
