Review_VOV Beaute Pencil Eyeliner in Black!

So here's a liner I was using for such a long time and I never reviewed it!! Even the pictures are from my previous cam which was stolen!! RIP my dear cam.. :'(
Ok..I know I am bad at doing reviews and posts on time..blame it on college life... :D

I got VOV kohl eyeliner probably a year ago..I think I got this for somewhere near 100 INR or less..don't remember see!!



-Its waterline safe..and that's how I was using this all this while..(yes..I have got something better now!!)
-Stays on for good 4-5 hours..I guess..and even when it starts fading it doesn't smudge around..so thats a good thing!!
-Its a cheapo!! College girls (read like me!) can definitely go for this!!
-The pigmentation is pretty good...
-It glides smoothly..no tugging required!

Cons? I don't think there are any..what else you expect in such a price!! Its a budget buy!!! :D
Swatches below! :)



Something New!! _Colorbar Blush in Peachy Rose!

Hey everyone!! Here's something I wanted to show you guys..I got this blush a month back maybe..and..I am loving it!!! Its my first blush from Colorbar!!
So just pictures in this post..will review it soon!! :D

Small Nail Polish Haul and swatches!!

Okay..so here's a really small nail polish haul.. (that rhymed!! lol!!)
I got these tiny polishes in october..during the diwali time.. And I was glad to get two glitter polishes since they are so much 'in'!! Again..these are from local brands..not that great polishes.. I am planning a nice "wishlist" for my bday..so feel free to suggest your favourite (don't forget affordable) nail polish brands!!

So now on to the haul..the pink glitter polish you'll see is really shear..transparent. Its looks good when used on some other polish. So I also have shown how it'll look on a cute bubble pink nail polish and how it looks without any polish under it!


the pink glitter polish worn on a pink nail polish looks good! :)

the pink glitter polish worn on its own..



V.O.V. NOTD!!

Hey everyone!!
I know..I am doing a post after a month or so..but there were many things which kept me busy..and I am still.. But while browsing through some pictures I came across these pics which I had taken..maybe a month back? So I thought of doing this post!

I like this pink V.O.V. nail polish!! Its such a pretty and fun colour!! So..here's the NOTD!!
And a small nail polish "haul" coming up next!! :D

Drugstore Blush Palette Review and Swatches

So here's a review (after so many days!!)..
I am reviewing a Blush Palette I got some 2 months back..from a random brand for 200INR..just for the sake of trying out different blush colours.. I had also shown this in a haul post.


It has five powder Blushes, the 1st one with little shimmer and rest of the four are matte!
The first one is perfect as a highlighter.
The 2nd and 3rd colours would look better on fair skinned beauties..I personally like the last two ones!
The pigmentation is good and staying power is also ok..So in all its a good buy for me!!


Here are the swatches- (the last one wasn't showing up...but its a nice colour!)


What do you think about this? Which drugstore ones you suggest?

Sparkles Unlimited's GIVEAWAY!!

Hey guys! Here's another giveaway news and its from Shrilata of Sparkles Unlimited!






My First Online Shopping with Urbantouch.com!!



Hey everyone!! :D

I am so excited to do this post because it’s on my first ever online shopping experience!! I have seen so many posts on various online sites coming up in India which offer many good brands and many also have the Cash on Delivery option which is what many prefer if you are shopping for the first time! 
And Urbantouch.com is such a site! What else, it also offers free shipping in India!! Isn't that exciting??!!! 

What I suggest (and that’s what I did) is that browse through the site, check all different brands and products they have. I had gone on Urbantouch.com so many times before deciding what to order. I was quite hesitant of shopping online, (I am anyways hesitant while shopping makeup from a store, imagine what the idea of shopping online did to me!! hehe).

Ok now about Urbantouch.com, it’s a pretty easy site to browse anything or order.. You can keep browsing even if you are not registered.
I am not going to write on how to go through the site since it’s a very easy thing to do, even the ordering part is simple! And let me tell guys this..I was so impressed that I shopped once again from Urbantouch.com!! Yay!!

Why I recommend Urbantouch.com:
-Express delivery (they deliver 2-3-4 days)
-Free shipping anywhere in India
-They offer brands like- NYX, Revlon, Colorbar, Faces Canada, Maybelline, Lakme, Elle 18, Lotus Herbals, Neutrogena, Ponds, and many more…also good range of Nail Polishes.. it also has OPI!!!! There are so many skincare brands also!!
-Offer discount on all many products.
-The packaging is really good, products are wrapped in Bubble wrap and thermacol and the best thing is it comes in a custom made Black sturdy box which has their name on it!! (I have two of these boxes now!!)
-They also give you lots of free samples with every order!
-They also have a scheme going on that if we order anything above Rs.500 we get a Surprise Gift (which I got when I ordered the second time!!).

What I wish Urbantouch.com had/change/add more:
-Although they offer discount on many brands, there is no discount on Maybelline and Colorbar products!! (why??!! I so wanted to get something from Colorbar! They recently added the blushes and eyeshadows.)
-They should add some more brands which we normally don’t get in India!!

Will I purchase from Urbantouch.com again? : YES!! :D

Well..I am not going to show the products in this post because I’ll be doing a separate Haul post!! I am just showing you guys some other pictures of the Box and their packaging and all..

the cool Black box! :D

this was my 1st order! 

Products nicely Bubble wrapped! (1st order)

The samples I got!! (from my 2nd order)





How do you store your Makeup?

How do you store your makeup?

Here's what my makeup storage used to look like some 6-7 months before.. I used to store it in a big plastic box. Now its completely different! 
I LOVE watching makeup collection videos on Youtube! Makeup Collection posts are fun too! We get to see how other people store their makeup and what all they have.. I will do one of my own when I feel satisfied enough of my collection to show! (yeah..that's never going to happen but still..!)

Have any of you guys done a post or video showing your collection? 
If you have one do add the link in the comments below! I would love to see it! :D

Easy-homemade Beauty Tips for Diwali!

Hello everyone!!
Yes..another post about Diwali! Isn't it the MOST awesome festival amongst all our Indian festivals??!!

We all wanna look our radiant, glowing best on Diwali. Even if one is doing makeup a naturally healthy, beautiful and glowing skin will further add to your beauty..



Here are four simple and easy-to-make tips which can be used:

1.  Just before going to bed, applying glycerine mixed with lemon juice works wonders.

2. Create a facial scrub with 1 tsp milk cream, 1/2 to 1 tsp ground sugar and 5-6 drops olive oil.
     Massage gently with 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp rose water, 1 tsp besan ans a pinch of turmeric.

3.  If you have a tan, take 2 tsp honey, 1 tsp milk and a few drops of lemon and massage all over.

4.  At bedtime, apply an equal proportion of honey and rose water on face and leave for 10 minutes.


HAPPY DIWALI!!! HAPPY DHANTERAS!! :D

Green-n-Brown Diwali Eye look!

Hey everyone!!

Here's a simple look I did which I think is good for diwali!!
I have seen many combinations of brown and green in sarees and dresses..and it does look good together.. So I thought of doing a look like that..and I have used brown eye liner as well. (please kindly ignore my bad eyebrows!)
I used my new V.O.V. palette and I am disappointed!! The colors are good but thy are not that pigmented..or they fail to show in pictures..

Anyways..tell me what you guys think about this look..
