Today, I felt like dressing up, it was a pleasant Sunday evening and I was on a date with my bae. The moment he told me we are leaving at 4pm. I looked at the clock and it was 12pm. Damn, no hair done, no nails done, no “ME” done. In short, I quickly had to take shower, do my nails, find out what I’ve to wear, decide on matching shoes and accessories. That’s when my new KOOVS Exclusive Print maxi slit top came to rescue which was also a gift by “him” to me. The moment he saw me, he smiled and decided to take some pictures of mine. And how can I say NO to pictures. 😛 I was happy and thought this would be a perfect idea to blog about and come up with my first ever OOTD on blogosphere. This post is going to be full of pictures so stay tuned.
I am very fond of statement neckpieces, I’ve got a huge collection of mostly boho necklaces. You will get to see each of them as and when I do a LOTD. I am matching this silver tribal neckpiece with my maxi slit top, thats the only accessory I am wearing in my outfit. Inside the top, I chose to wear a JOCKEYwhite cami, as the material was see through, made of polyster and the cut was too deep. If you are bold enough to wear a white bralette which is very much in fashion these days. I’ll suggest go for it and flaunt your flat abs. For others, try it with the Cami.
I wore a dark blue jeans which is from FOREVER 21 and METRO lace shoes to complete the look. Just left my ombre hair open and ta-da I am ready for the evening.
This was my first LOTD but there will be many more coming on your way…..
It’s a beautiful Saturday morning and here I am posting a review for my new compact love L’Oreal Paris Magique All in One Matte Transforming Powder. As soon as I heard that L’Oreal has come up with a compact powder which is under 500 bucks. Dude, I really had to check this out. L’Oreal being a niche brand hardly prices any product under 500 and this made me curious to try this new product. Now I am stuck to Rimmel Stay Matte Powder because I haven’t found any compact as equal or better than it. I like matte finish on my face, mind you matte and not fl(akey). So Rimmel was my best bet till date. Until, I found this new cutie from L’Oreal.
Product Description –
L’Oreal Paris brings to you the Mat Magique pressed powder – a product that ensures your make-up remains fresh all day long and keeps your skin shine free for 12 hours. With 5 shades, specially created to suit Indian skin tones, Mat Magique has natural volcanic perlite minerals that absorb sebum and sheen giving you a velvety finish that lasts for 12 hours. With the added benefit of SPF 34 PA+++ your skin is protected from the sun and looks blemish free, healthy and radiant all day long.
Price – Rs. 399 for 6gms (pretty less ehh?? )
Packaging – The packaging is really cute and girly. The hot pink color is very eye catchy and feminine with the L’Oreal branding. It comes with two compartments on top we have the powder pan, while in the second compartment there is sponge with the mirror. I struggle to switch between the compartments as I need to check myself in the mirror while I dab the powder on my face. The sponge is okayish and decent enough for full face application.
My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Magique All-In-One Matte Transforming Powder–
Honestly, I am not a foundation girl. I am more of a compact girl. I don’t like covering my face with full fledged base make up all the time. I prefer putting on my sunscreen, a good compact, kajal, a lip balm/lipstick/lipgloss and I am good to go. I loved this particular compact for many reasons. It is soft matte, like sleek smooth finish. I cannot say its creamy. It gives you a moisturising touch. Having said that, it brightens up your face but also accentuate your dry areas if you have dry/combination skin. I am combination skin and have dry areas around my lips. So you need to apply a good moisturizer and then use this compact. The coverage is buildable from sheer to full, you can play with it. This will be great for oily skin beauties. This does hide your pores and blemishes pretty well. Coming to the 12 hrs claim, It doesn’t really stay that long, it stays more around 5-6hrs max on my face and then my nose starts getting shinier 😛 . But I don’t need a compact for 12hrs straight anyway. I mostly need it for 8hrs during office and that’s it. You can always re-touch after 5hrs. I am G2 Golden Ivory which is suitable to medium skin beauties. The shades are made for Indian Skintones and most of you will be able to find your match. These fall more in the yellow skintone category. There are 4 more shades. G1 Vanilla Ivory is for fair skin, N2 Nude Vanilla and G2 will be for fair to medium, G7 Golden Amber and N6 Nude Honey is for dusky beauties. Oh and it comes with SPF 34+++, who wouldn’t love added benefits. I really wish they could provide more like at least 8gms of product. But I guess they invested more on the packaging so in that case its fair enough.
Brightens the face
Keeps your face oil-free around 5-6hrs
Gives smooth soft finish to your skin
Inbuilt mirror and sponge
Made for Indian skintones leaning towards yellows
Hides pores and blemishes
Perfect for daily wear
It stays matte only for 5-6hrs and then skin starts getting oilier so no 12hrs stay here.
I feel they could stretch the product with 8gms atleast.
My Recommendation – It’s a repurchase material. I am hooked to this and see myself wearing it almost every day with that speed I am bound to finish this sooner.
I am back with another review its a long name above like you can already see. I really wanna be frequent with writing. Unfortunately, I don’t get enough time not that I am lazy. Its my job which keeps me occupied and few other activities. Oh yes! I am going to join Zumba from tomorrow. Not really join though.. Its more like a demo class I am going to attend. And if I like it I will join. Will keep you guys posted with my Zumba thingy! Coming back to the topic, well today I am going to review on L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Red Lipstick Pure Vermeil. I loved the Star collection and couldn’t resist buying PURE SCARLETO, PURE VERMEIL, PURE AMARANTHE, PURE GARNET. I laid my hands on these beauties. PURE VERMEIL being my favourite. They all are red but different reds.

I quite like the packaging looks really sturdy and classy. At that price I do expect a stylish packaging and L’Oreal has lived up to my expectations in terms of packaging with the gold finish and signature’s of the brand ambassadors.
Pure Vermeil is a beautiful “Sindoori” shade. Its more like a pinkish corally red. I can’t really explain the color. But If you ask me which one would I suggest out of the range that would be “PURE VERMEIL”. It instantly brightens up your face and brings out your features. It’s a perfect bridal as well as party wear shade. However, I am one of those that can simply wear a sweatshirt, wear my jeans and move out with only RED lipstick on a bareface. I totally dig RED lipstick. I am one of those gals who would choose RED over NUDE. Bright colors are my weakness and this is a perfect bright shade to lift your mood and look both.
The lipstick is soft matte. I mean at first its quite moisturising and then it settles down to a nice matte which I totally adore. I am a matte lover and this is not one of those hard matte’s if you know what I mean. The only thing you need to exfoliate your lips before wearing this or it may accentuate fine lines and can look flaky.
Pigmentation & Staying Power –
It’s highly pigmented and doesn’t need more than two swipes to bring out the actual shade. If you want to go to work, one swipe is enough. For a party, 2-3 swipes would bring out the real shade and look ravishing. The staying power is also excellent, it stays upto 5-6hrs on me and then leaves a slight pinkish tint behind which doesn’t look bad at all. It can be easily removed with any make up remover. Neither does it stain nor transfer. So I think it’s a great buy for the cost it comes. The only thing is this lipstick breaks easily so need to refrigerate it.
Greater staying power
Unique shade, pinkish corally red
Doesn’t accentuate fine lips
Give fuller lips
Signature of the brand ambassadors
Can be a great bridal wear lipstick
It breaks easily so have to refrigerate it
Rating – 4.5/5
My Recommendation – I love this shade and before it gets over I am planning to keep a back up. I have also gifted this shade to one of my friend and she totally adores it. <3
Yes I am back to blogging and it feels really great to write again from where I started. You are right..I started from product reviews and here I am writing on a mascara which was on my mind from quite some time. I love wearing wearing make up and I always keep on trying new products. I feel with the booming beauty industry we have lot of products to explore, some brand always leading , some competing and some getting better than the Best! Well, that’s Life! Need is the mother of Invention as they say! So today I present to you one such product which can give tough competition to other mascaras in the market. I love RIMMEL products, I really love this brand from the Stay matte powder to their lipstick and gloss. I tried it all and it never failed me. I have finished almost 8-9 pans of the STAY MATTE powder and its my Holy GRAIL till date. Coming back to RIMMEL LONDON SEXY CURVES FULL FIGURE EXTRA VOLUME MASCARA… Hushhh! That’s quite a long name to remember! Well… longer the name longer the benefits with this product!

My Experience with Rimmel London Sexy Curves Full Figure Extra Volume Mascara
So here is the story I was really ready to spend on a good mascara. Because, I finished my previous one which was Rimmel Scandal eyes mascara and so I ran to the beauty store to look for a very good infact best one. I assumed Loreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara was one of the best mascara’s in the market. But when I tried it at the beauty centre it didn’t appeal me that much and then I dragged myself to Rimmel Counter again. There I tried this mascara and immediately loved the effects of it. I never knew that my second mascara will also come from Rimmel. But whatever works for you is BEST for you Right? 😉 This mascara is jet black and waterproof, doesn’t smudge, doesn’t clumps, and doesn’t irritate the eyes. It comes out easily with any make up remover. So you don’t have to wrestle with your lashes. The wand is little complicated but that’s ok as far as it does the job well. Like you would see in the picture it helped me in giving a better volume and curved my lashes perfectly. I don’t have long lashes. But I have decent volume and this mascara worked well with my features. All in all I would say it is a great mascara for both daily wear as well as for occasions. The only thing is I don’t get the desired long lashes like I want. But it never said it lengthens the lashes anyway. Also I hate going to the beauty store in Bandra especially to get Rimmel Products. I know you get Rimmel products on Nykaa.com. But they are mostly out of stock. The availability is a huge problem. They used to serve at PARCOS, INFINITY MALL, MALAD, MUMBAI. Unfortunately, Parcos has shut down and again no Rimmel. I wish someone could just go and tell them to come back. Well all in all if you love a good everyday or anyday mascara do try this ladies you won’t regret. It’s a good buy for sure.
Jet black mascara
Doesn’t irritate eyes
Comes out easily with any make up remover
Gives your lashes that curvy fuller look
Good for everyday anyday wear
Stylish glossy packaging
Doesn’t lengthen as required (never claimed though)
Availability is a big issue
My Recommendation – I really want you to try this mascara. It’s great for daily wear and party wear both so you get a two in one deal here. I am sure you won’t regret your purchase. Infact, you might just come and hug me for the advice who knows 😛
You all must be really surprised to see me blogging again after all these years. All of you must be wondering where did I vanish? And now out of nowhere where did I appear again. Haha! Well honestly I was done with my 9-5 job and blogging and entrepreneurship has always been my CALLING! I missed you all sooooo much, I missed myself in your world. I quietly use to read various post by my fellow beauty and fashion bloggers. And deep in my heart I always had the urge to start writing, posing and flaunting once again. Many of my girls inspired to start my own blog. Honestly, I was shit scared. .. I believe more than passion, blogging is a responsibility. You become a parent taking care of your blog because if you don’t who else will? Your Blog is your baby, it needs constant care and attention. That’s what kept me from starting my blog. Finally I decided that I am Ready. And here I am with my first post. This arrived yesterday and so I thought let’s get started with the New Year with the new accessory in my kitty. Please share, care and give back some love <3
Well I have been searching for this ring from quite some time now. This looks very similar to the famous YSL Arty Ring in Gold Turquoise. I love wearing turquoise, ruby, diamond etc.. After a lot of searching I happened to see it in Stylefiesta’s page one day. And guess what, it was on discount so I really had to pick this up. This ring can be paired with any outfit. You will soon see me wearing in my OOTD’s. Yeah! I have a long list in my kitty, lot of things to flaunt and lot of things for you to discover. Coming back to this ring, If you are one of those bold women who love wearing statement accessories. Do pick this up, I am sure you are going to love this. I am keeping my first post short and sweet. Please like comment and share. Do whatever you would like to do except Copy . 😛
