Dress like a Diva with Promtimes.co.uk

Hello Divas,

Today I want to introduce Promtimes.co.uk which is an amazing online shopping destination for dresses. I know you would say, “We don’t even celebrate Prom here in India.” Trust me; our culture has revolutionized so much over the years. I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up adding a date for Prom night. We Indians are leading when it comes to celebration. We have started celebrating “Halloween.” There is a festival of every season and reason. Gone are the days where we used to wear lehenga choli for every function. Now a day’s everyone wants to wear a cocktail/Indo-western dress for an event. Then there are bridesmaid and wedding dresses for reception party. One of my closest friend is getting married and while she is throwing her bachelorette party. We both are hunting for good dresses in budget and everything at the shop here looked so tacky to wear. There is just no variety when it comes to dresses in Indian market.

Promtimes.co.uk has some breath taking dresses for every occasion. There are long, short, evening maxi dresses, dresses for brides and bridesmaid, dresses according to colour, size and shape, dresses under £50 and £100. You cannot just help pick one. Also they have amazing offers and deals running around the year. Currently they have Upto 75% off + Free Shipping over £200.  Fab, Isn’t it?  I am a sucker for cheap dresses because I know I am not going to wear it frequently. They have to be good quality yet cheap. This website looks great if you want to make a group order for your girlies during wedding season. All the dresses are unique and one of a kind. There is absolutely no chance of “being common” which we girls threat about. They have huge collection to pick from and the patterns and cuts are absolutely creative. My favourite amongst the lot is the one with sequence. Check out my picks below :

My Experience with SUGAR It’s A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick 04 Coraline in the City

Starting with the packaging I liked the sleek and classy square finish packaging. The shade Coraline in the City is a beautiful orangey-coral. It will suit any complexion and perks up my yellowish skintone. It reminds me of “MIRANDA”. The colour isn’t OTT it is wearable enough to be worn in office. This shade would look great in upcoming summers giving a sun-kissed look to our complexion. The shade looks opaque in 2-3 swipes. The application is a bit creamy which settles in a semi-matte finish. The lipstick is not hydrating so we need to exfoliate our lips before applying the lipstick. The lipstick stays upto 4-5 hours on my lips post which it becomes lighter and doesn’t totally go off.  That way it is very well pigmented and doesn’t dry out the lips either. Overall, I am quite happy with the new range and can’t wait to try the other shades. I am glad they have kept the price reasonable. I am sure these will sell like hotcakes.

Pros

  • Sleek packaging
  • Sassy shade
  • The shade brightens up the complexion
  • Will suit every skintone
  • Semi matte finish
  • Stays upto 4-5 hours
  • Well pigmented
  • Reasonable pricing
  • Doesn’t dry out the lips
  • Free from mineral oil, D5, parabens & nano-ingredients.

Cons

  • Takes 2-3 swipes

Ratings– 4.5/5

Recommendation – I am head over heels on this shade. I don’t like orangey shades, but this has a good blend of colors which looks fun and sassy on Indian skintones. Now, I am tempted to try other shades too.

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com!

Hello beauties,

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

I know its been like ages that I have pen down something. I have been MIA from Snapchat, Instagram etc. Nevertheless, Life look much sorted now and things started looking up. I got a new job which I will be starting from Monday. I am pretty excited and nervous. I realised that a person should never sit idle. An idle mind is a devil’s workshop. I took a break from my work and I am resuming soon. Well, I want to share my beauty shopping experience from Jabong.com. Like I said, I am going to start with work soon so I thought let’s do a bit of shopping and get myself all worked up. I bought few formal shirts and blouses, got a few scarves. While I was looking for that perfect office wear lipstick, I reached Jabong. Its quite rare that we girls buy cosmetics from Jabong.com. We usually go to that beauty centric website to buy something because we think we’ll get a better discount there. I was eyeing the Lakme 9 to 5 Range collection for office wear shades.

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

I compared across all platforms and found Jabong selling the Lakme lipsticks at the cheapest price. I received this at a discounted price of Rs. 360 originally it is for Rs. 450. Quite a deal..Isn’t it? The 9 to 5 range is the best when you are looking for basic pinks, browns and mauves which are wearable and also feels comfortable on lips. I love the lakme 9 to 5 range for the light feel and longevity. I have loads of bright lipsticks and hardly any nude or browns. As usual, my order arrived within 3 days with proper bubble wrap packaging. The lipstick was housed in Jabong’s small cardboard orange box. That is something rare!

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

So this is how the shade looks on me.. It gives me a feel of “My lips but better”. The shade Red chaos is nowhere near to Red like you can see. Don’t know what Lakme was thinking while naming the shades? But I am happy with the texture, shade and longevity.  Jabong is my online shopping destination for apparels but now I can trust the website for beauty buying too. I loved the endless discounts they have on major brands. If there is no sale one can always make use of Jabong coupons to buy the products pending in the wishlist. I do this often, I keep collecting things in my cart and as soon as there is any discounts or coupons available. I quickly go ahead and make the purchase. I have bought stuff like NIKE, PUMA, VERO MODA using the trick.  And now I do the same with L’Oreal, Make up Revolution etc. Do check out Jabong.com for the latest offers on clothes, beauty etc. I can’t share everything on blog so those of you who want to see my purchases. Follow me on snapchat: erica.eleganza.  I share my life on Snapchat which includes a lot of shopping of course 😛

Hello Divas,

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com
My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

With this EOSS sale, I went crazy shopping from everywhere. If you are following me on Snapchat (id – erica.eleganza) you will know how I shopped like there is No tomorrow. I have been doing Online shopping from the time I’ve become a beauty blogger. Online shopping + shifting to a new home have made me super lazy to go anywhere. And why go somewhere when you have such a huge variety online. So it happened this way that I crossed my limits on shopping and every day there is this new courier fella coming to my doorstep. My mom was super angry that I was spending so much. So I thought I’ll restrict myself. I was really eyeing this “PUMA” tee on Jabong.com which was on a major discount. I didn’t know what to do I just added it to my wishlist and kept coming to Jabong every day admiring it and going back.  I think the UNIVERSE heard me and Jabong guys offered me Jabong Coupons to shop with them and share the experience.

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com
My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

So along with the “Puma” tee I ordered As ORIGINAL track pants from American Swan because I thought the pair will rock as a Zumba Outfit. I received my order within 3 days. I don’t need to introduce Jabong.com I guess by now all of us know what is Jabong.com?  Jabong has always provided on time delivery and I swear by this website for shipping, quality and variety. I can tell you this because I have been shopping from this website from past 3years and it never failed me. I didn’t have a single bad experience with Jabong yet *touchwood* and I hope it continues.

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com
My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

Honestly, if it wasn’t Jabong! I personally would have never gone to a PUMA store to purchase a tee from them. That’s because a store will never get me such a huge discount on their brand. I bought this using the Jabong coupons on discount for Rs. 649 and the actually MRP is Rs. 999.  The As Original trackpants too priced 1499 INR and I got them for 613 INR. I felt like I bagged a great deal. Everything came intact with the tags, nicely bubble wrapped and the products were all genuine.

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com
My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

And this is my SNAPCHAT picture when I wore this to Zumba the other day. All my friends loved my outfit and asked where did I get my stuff from? The clothes were extremely comfy and it fit me to the T. Jabong.com is currently offering great discounts on Sports brands like NIKE, PUMA, REEBOK, ADIDAS etc. There is a sale upto 80% off with free shipping on most brands. Jabong is my go to website whenever it comes to shopping on brands. I am sure to find discounts here. Need I say more? My picture says it all.  So if you are still waiting for my final verdict. Yes, JABONG is my favourite shopping destination. Hands down!

Lots of Love!

Where to Shop Beautiful Formal Gown Dresses this Wedding Season? Beformal.com.au

Beformal.com.au

Hello gorgeousness,

I’ve been too busy with the wedding season lately. Always running out of clothes to wear, I have so less when it comes to ethnic and almost nil when it comes to gown and formal dresses. So the other day my bestie asked me where she can find Formal Dress Shops? As she is getting married soon, she wants one or two for a cocktail party and reception. Honestly, I didn’t know any place and I thought being a beauty & fashion blogger it would be a shame if I cannot help her out. C’mon she trusted me to advice her with a good place to shop. So I thought this will be a good opportunity to do a little homework plus it will be helpful for my marriage too. I searched a lot online for plus size formal dresses as she is plus size (No, I am not). It’s a task to find dresses for plus size. After a lot of research work and help from blogger friends, I came across this website called http://www.beformal.com.au/ This website was started in the year 2013 and serves across the world. They have got millions of products and customers who purchases from their range of Formal dresses Australia, wedding gowns, mother of the bride dresses, prom dresses etc.. You would now think that it is going to be expensive to purchase dresses online. I have compared the prices myself and they offer the best dresses in wholesale rate.

plus size formal dresses/gowns
plus size formal dresses/gowns

The best part is they have dresses for all age, size and occasion. I was shocked to see the plus size formal dresses Australia variety on this website. They have some breathtaking formal dresses and gowns. My friend was puzzled looking at their collection. It was difficult for her to pick just ‘one’. In India, its absolutely difficult to get good plus size formal dresses and gowns for a bride. Usually, the collection is too tacky, too tight or too old-fashioned. The good thing about getting a dress from this website is that they customise the dresses according to your size. Yippie! What a sigh of relief isn’t it? If you are a plus size woman and looking for formal dresses go follow this link http://www.beformal.com.au/list/plus-size-formal-dresses-c113338/

Do follow this link http://www.beformal.com.au/list/formal-dresses-c113329/

So what do you think about the collection? If you have any query regarding the price, shipping etc. Do let me know, I would help you in the best possible manner.

Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo Review

Hello dearies,

DSC_0007
Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo Review

I know I have been MIA for a very long time. December went away then New Years got over and now I am writing something almost after a week from New Years. Well, I don’t know what I have been doing lately. I am so busy with my family and friends. I told you my relatives have come from USA so my whole schedule has gone for a toss and blogging has taken a backseat. But I am dedicated to write more from this year and give my best to my blog. So here I am with writing on Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo. Many of my friends kept asking me what shampoo and conditioner I have been using lately for my coloured hair. Well, I keep switching in between conditioners, but this shampoo has been the best stuff I’ve chosen for my hair. My second option was always Streax colorgard shampoo. Both the shampoos work great for me but this is definitely better. I found this awesome product in Beauty Centre Mumbai. I picked it up randomly as it was from Schwarzkopf. I am glad I trusted my gut.

Product Description

  • Provides extra long-lasting colour protection and intensive shine.
  • Smoothes and cares for the hair structure of coloured hair.
  • Radiant and long-lasting colour shine.

Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo Review

Price – I got this for Rs.200 for 400ml from Beauty centre. The price varies everywhere. You can buy this online though.

DSC_0013
Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo Review

Packaging – I like the red hot packaging which is also very sturdy. It comes with a flip flop packaging. It is travel friendly. But there is no small bottle available in this. So I guess I’ll take some of the shampoo in a small bottle instead of carrying this big bottle. The packaging looks attractive and stylish.

Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo Review

My Experience with Schwarzkopf Supersoft Colour Shine Shampoo-

Incase you are wondering if I have done any recent hair colouring then let me enlighten you that I have not. I have coloured my hair last year on Christmas. My hair colour has faded a bit but not gone completely. I have invested in many shampoos and conditioners to protect the hair color. I was pretty satisfied with Streax but I wanted something extraordinary. So I thought of picking this up for a try.  With the very first wash my hair felt silky smooth and soft. I was so happy that I was taking pictures and sending to my besties group showing them how soft the hair looked. I can tell you it’s the shampoo because the conditioner was the same old one from Streax that I was using. I couldn’t find the conditioner from Schwarzkopf. The shampoo is bit runny in consistency, it lathers really well. The fragrance is too mild to get noticed. It helps in cleaning the scalpe well and remove oil dirt, grime and greasiness. My hair looks very shiny and soft after shampooing my hair. The colour of my hair looks glossy. Also hair looks sorted and doesn’t get tangles easily as compared to other shampoos I’ve tried. I can run my fingers through my hair. I swear by this shampoo for my highlighted hair. It isn’t that pricey for the quantity it comes. The only problem with this is the availability and the price difference in the retail and online shops.

Pros

  • Colour protection and makes it look glossy
  • Gives smooth and soft hair
  • Cleanse hair thoroughly
  • Doesn’t tangle hair
  • Added shine to overall hair
  • Good quantity
  • Repairs damaged hair
  • Sturdy attractive packaging
  • Very affordable

Cons

  • Price variation

Ratings – 5/5

My Recommendation– If you have coloured/highlighted hair and looking for a hair color protecting shampoo try this. I have bought two bottles in my stock so that I don’t run out of stock.

 

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review

Hello ladies,

Jergens-Ultra-Healing-Moisturizer-500x500
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review

Winter is my favourite season and I love to look at my face during this season. I look much brighter and younger. That I was talking about was my facial skin. However, I hate looking at my body’s skin. They look so dry, rough and white. Also on certain days I feel itchy more than usual. I dare not use a lotion after shower or else I’ll be like a monkey scratching my hands and legs all day. I know everyone is in a hunt of buying body lotions and body butter to save their skin these days. So I thought I’ll introduce you to my all time favourite body moisturizer. Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer is a thick moisturizer which is meant to use on extra dry skin on those extra cold days. My aunts who live in states always bring 4-5 bottles of this lotion every time they come to India. So I have been using this brand since 5-6years now. I think I am experience enough to write about it now.

Product Description

DSC_0130
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review

Made with a blend of Vitamins C, E and B5, this fast-absorbing body lotion goes deep beneath skin’s surface to lock in moisture and heal dryness at the source, preventing its unwelcome return.

  • Penetrates through 5 layers of skin’s surface to start healing at the source
  • Helps heal extra dry skin—including heels, elbows and knees
  • Triples skin’s moisture content with continued use
  • Provides 24-hour relief

Price – Available for Rs. 403 for 496ml bottle on AMAZON. You can compare the prices online.

DSC_0135
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review

Packaging – It is housed in a thick sturdy white bottle which has a flip flop. If you go for a bottle which is of higher quantity, you have to simply press the pump and the lotion will drop out. The packaging of the bottle is travel friendly. Like I said my aunts always get 4-5 bottles of these from states.

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer Review

My Experience with Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer-

This is hands down one of the best winter skin moisturizer I have ever used. I agree I always get bored of using this since I have like 4-5 bottles in stock with me. In between, I keep trying other products. But I always tend to come back to this during winters. It heals every part of dry areas of my skin and makes it smooth and shiny.  There is absolutely no need of re-application with this lotion. The cream consistency is medium, I say medium because it’s not as thick as those heavy duty body butters. It goes like a breeze on my skin. Some might find it too heavy for summers. It tends to get a bit sticky during summers. However, its perfect for winters and can be carried anytime anywhere. Earlier it was not available easily in India but now its available everywhere online. I also found it in beauty stores here in Mumbai, India.

Pros

  • Great moisturizer/lotion for winters
  • Heals the roughest points of your skin
  • Lasting moisturization
  • Travel friendly
  • No need of reapplication
  • Skin becomes smooth and soft with regular use
  • Skin doesn’t feel itchy or stretchy anymore
  • Available easily online

Cons

  • None just avoid using this during summers or it may feel sticky.

Rating – 5/5

My Recommendation–  I have been using this from so many years and I cannot force you enough to get this. Do pick up one and try it yourself. You will be hooked.

 Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Magenta Magic Review, Swatches & FOTD

Hello beauties,

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Magenta Magic Review, Swatches & FOTD

First Of all Compliments of the Season to all my lovelies. I wanted to post something yesterday on Christmas but I was so occupied with going to church, attending the guests, meeting relatives. I also have my Mama here who arrived 2 days back from USA and I have to accompany him everywhere he goes as he doesn’t know the city quite well. For people who don’t know me, I am partially catholic. Yeah, that happens to people when their parents have inter-caste marriage..lol! Well, I have this bad habit of getting off the topic and talking non-stop. I’ll talk about LAKME ABSOLUTE LIP TINT MAGENTA MAGIC.  We were playing Secret Santa on Facebook and I received this as a gift from my blogger friend Agnibanya Das Poddar.  I received 6 gifts from the Secret Santa game out of which this one was the Bestest I would say. I was really hoping someone would send me a lipstick. And its like Agni heard me and sent this lip matte tint and Maybelline color show nailpolish.

Price– Rs. 650 for 3.5gms

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Magenta Magic Review, Swatches & FOTD

Packaging– It’s a fat chubby stick which looks more like a crayon. It’s a retractable pencil crayon which doesn’t need sharpening. There is a silver cap to protect the liptint as it cannot be twisted back inside completely.  Luckily, the lip tint shade matches the packaging so you don’t have to worry about picking up the wrong shade.

My Experience with LAKME ABSOLUTE LIP TINT MAGENTA MAGIC-

I am glad Agni sent me this shade because my stash is full of reds and pinks. This is a unique magenta shade which is not too bright or in your face types. It is subtle enough to wear daily and sexy enough to wear for a party.  It provides medium to buildable coverage and easily hides pigmented lips. This shade looks a bit different on everyone based on the lip pigmentation. However, I know everyone who has this lipstick looks great in it. It has matte finish. I would suggest exfoliating your lips before application as it may accentuate fine lines of your lips. If you directly apply it then it may look flaky. Its really difficult to completely remove the lip tint as it stays put for a longer time.  I believe the formula is Bang On! However, it transfers on almost everything in comes in contact with. This liptint stays put upto 6 hrs on me and thereafter leaves a darkish pink stain.

IMG_9623
Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Magenta Magic Review, Swatches & FOTD

Pros

  • Stays upto 6hrs
  • Matte finish
  • Highly pigmented
  • Lovely magenta shade
  • Wearable on all occasions
  • Quite Affordable
  • Good quantity
  • Packaging is great as no sharpener required

Cons

  • Need to exfoliate or may look flaky
  • Can be a bit drying
  • Transfers on objects easily

Rating – 4/5

Recommendation – I would definitely recommend this particular shade. It would make a great fall wear. It has great formula and staying power. Winters are perfect time to rock such shade and I would want to check more shades from this range.

Maybelline White Super fresh 12hr Compact Powder Review

Hello beauties,

MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT POWDER REVIEW (SHELL)

How is everyone doing? Christmas is here and I have bought a truck load of things. Some things I need others I don’t but just because that shoes is on sale right now. Do you also indulge in such impulse shopping like me? I end up buying 3 dresses in the search of that perfect Xmas outfit. Also blame the SALE Season; everything has to be on sale this season. Anyway coming to my review, I have enough of compact powders but like I said I was tempted to purchase MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT after all those reviews flooding online. I am always in a search of a good compact powder because I want to find an alternate incase Rimmel Stay matte powder leaves my side. The Availability is such a big issue with Rimmel.

Product Description –

MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT POWDER REVIEW (SHELL)

 Price – Rs. 150 for 8gms

IMG_8037
MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT POWDER REVIEW (SHELL)

Packaging – It comes with a cute mirror and a small sponge. The sponge is average and I don’t like using it. Application with that sponge gives a patchy look to my face. Hence I’ve bought a separate soft sponge for application. At home, I use my Coastal scents powder brush which helps me give an even finish. The compact is travel friendly and has sturdy packaging.

MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT POWDER REVIEW (SHELL)

My Experience with MAYBELLINE WHITE SUPERFRESH COMPACT-

I think I did a good job by purchasing this compact. My shade is Shell amongst the shade selection. It perfectly suits my medium complexion. This compact has a mild florally smell which I love. With the very first application, I like how it felt on my skin. It gave a fresher, brighter look to my face. I don’t like using foundation for daily use. I apply sunscreen and finish the look by applying the compact powder. I know it has SPF which is definitely an add on advantage. This compact gives a matte look that also means it accentuates the drier patches of my face. I have to make sure my face is well moisturise first before applying powder. This will be a great compact for oily skintypes. Combination skinnies like me can use this too however moisturization first is the key..baby! It gives a matte look uptil 5hrs and then I could see my t-zones getting a bit shinier. It gives you a sheer to medium coverage. The price is pocket friendly and I am sure this will be the bestsellers for college-goers.  Overall, I love this compact for the fresh look and bright matte face.
