This eyeshadow is a mix of shimmer, metallic and matte eyeshadow. The brown shadow in the top row end is a great transition color. All the eyeshades are superbly pigmented and I didn’t experience any fallout with them yet. This eyeshadow is perfect for fall/winter makeup and also for smokey eyes. I enjoyed playing with this palette and I see myself using a lot of this.

The medium face contour kit is not a hidden gem. Its been all over the blogosphere and has been a favourite choice contour kit to many. So I don’t have to say much about it. This contour kit includes contouring powder and a highlighter and this kit is perfect for daily wear.

Sleek Face Contour Kit In Medium

This lipstick is a semi matte finish red that provides full coverage and pigmentation. The formula is very smooth and buttery but transfers easily. This lipstick include properties of Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Coconut oil to moisturise and nourish lips.

Sleek Lip Vip Lipstick In Guestlist

This twist up eye pencil in midnight can be used both on the lashline and waterline. The pigmentation is quite intense and it didn’t smudge as yet.

Sleek Twist Up Midnight Eye Pencil

I love this particular eyebrow stylist in medium. It looks so natural on the brows and best to use on-the go. The angular shape gives a perfect outline to the brows and the spooley side clears any dust and groom the eyebrows neatly.  I am so glad I got this in the kit.

This solace highlighting palette is life! I think this is the best palette in the kit. I can easily compare it to any high end highlighter to this palette and this will turn out to be a winner. I have benefit whatsup highlighter and this works better than the former. One shade on top row is creamy while the other three is in powder form. I also love the classy golden case packaging, it looks so classy and the mirror in it is bigh enough to do your makeup anywhere. Absolute love material.

Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette

This Sleek Matte me liquid lipstick in “Shabby Chic” is a pretty petal rosy kinda shade. It will suit fair to medium skintone very well. However, darker skintones should stay away from this shade. But you can work it out by mixing with another shade and you are good to go.

Sleek Matte Me In Shabby Chic

Sleek Full Fat lash mascara is an everyday mascara. I won’t say that it is the best mascara I have used because I have used better mascaras than this. However, it does a decent job for an everyday mascara. It helps in separating the lashes clearly without any clumps. It doesn’t lengthens the lash or add much volume but it opens up the eyes. Its the only miss in the kit.

Sleek Full Fat Lash Mascara

The blush by 3 lace is a bestseller trio from the Sleek. Again I do not need to talk about it in details as there has been detailed review about it online. These blush are insanely pigmented and gives a healthy glow and color to the cheek. Out of the three two shades are matte and the mid shade is slightly shimmery but not OTT.

Sleek Blush By 3 In Lace

I used the products from the kit and I loved how it turn out on me. I didn’t get to use the red lisptick as it wouldn’t match my eyemakeup. Rest everything is from the kit apart from my base makeup.

Hope you like the Sleek Box of Tricks Makeup Haul. I am in love with this kit, it is perfect for a gift as well as for personal use. This kit is a bargain at its a price, you get to use 9 products for around 2000 INR. These are all full size products and there is no mini product included in this kit. If you want me to review any particular product from this kit, please let me know and I will be glad to do a detailed review. Overall, I would say if you still wish to buy it keep an eye on the boots sale. As of now it is out of stock but you never know when it’s restocked.

Lots of Love,

Ric <3

P.S- This is not a press review. I have purchased the product and the post written is honest & unbiased.

 

 

Men’s Fashion : Be Winter Ready in Style with Long Line Cardigans!

I am back with another post and this time its all about dressing in Winters. We men mostly look out for a sweatshirt or a jacket  to cover up in winters. Like women, we don’t have much options like cape, cardigan, shrugs etc? Right?… Wrong! who said we don’t have options? Its time that we need to come out of our comfort zones and experiment a bit with trending long line cardigans and pullovers. So today, I would like to introduce this super comfortable, warm and cozy outerwear which I have styled with a pair of silver shoes, mirror sunglasses, black t- shirt and a basic black trouser. This look is super stylish yet so cozy for any occasion. Whether you are heading to a party or travelling to a cold place for vacation, this outfit will make a mark everywhere you go.

I chose to style a white cardigan as its my favourite color. Also, I personally feel ‘white’ is a very rich color and stands out of the crowd if styled perfectly. However, I have seen these cardigans in many other colors like black, grey, green and burgundy. You can pick a color of your choice and rock this holiday season in a unique style.

So thats all..Folks! I am a Man of few words so hope you enjoyed this post and I will be back with another outfit soon. Merry Christmas and a Blessed New year To you All!

P.S – Smoking is Injurious to health and the picture above is just for this post. I do not encourage anyone to smoke unless its your personal choice.

Hello Sunshine,

dsc_0360

I am back with yet another look this weekend. It’s been ages that I have been anywhere and I simply wanted to get up and go somewhere this Saturday. Leos are all about adventure, sudden plans, early mornings, fun, style and the list goes on. So my partner in crime and I headed to the beach early morning to get some fresh air. He is someone who hates waiting and I am someone who takes time to get ready. So I asked him what should I wear? And guess what was his answer, “Something that won’t take you long to get ready and yet look great on you.” This was like a task for me.. No seriously it is, because I like to take my own sweet time to get ready. In situations like this, I always trust my favourite pair of jeans and a cool casual tee. I am all about slogan tees… simply because you can convey your message without even talking about it.*wink wink*.  I picked up this yellow tee called BRAT from the house of Bewakoof.com. The moment I saw it, I knew it was so Me. So let me keep this short and show you what and how I wore what I wore. I have 2 looks to share with you. So read on & enjoy the pictures…

I know my outfit screams “Bright & Fun” and accurately defines Me. I am insanely in love with patchwork tops, shirts and jeans. You will surely see some more of it in my future posts. I thought of pairing this patchwork jeans along with my yellow BRAT Tee. The combination gave me a back to school feel. This look definitely was effortless style for me. Unlike those days when I take ages to get ready.

Coming to my 2nd look which I wore in the evening, this look is again very casual and chic. I would rather call it “WEARABLE” . I picked this awesome tank top no. 23 from Bewakoof again. I wanted to give an edgy look so I wore a sleeveless denim top along with my zipper jeggings (read absolute favourite). I only added a funky sunglasses to add a bit of quirk to my outfit. There is just no need to wear a lot of accesories accept a casual watch to such outfits and that is what I appreciate the most about casual dressing.

Both the tee and tank top is from Bewakoof.com. You know where to go when you are looking for casual, chic and sporty collection. Bewakoof is growing each day by adding such unusual collection of T-Shirt, Tank top, Tshirt dress, joggers and more. They always surprise me by adding new products to their existing line of products The moment I think that there is nothing much to shop, they come out with something different. Like I really admire the new denim tees in their collection. So let me shop some more and I’ll come back with a new OOTD pretty soon.

Hope you like my outfits, do let me know if you have shopped anything from Bewakoof?

Affordable Highlighter Fan Brush Review

Hello girls,

Affordable Highlighter Fan Brush Review
Affordable Highlighter Fan Brush Review

Today I want to talk about an affordable fan highlighter brush. The other day I posted a picture of my new unbranded fan brush on Instagram which I purchased from Ebay & many of my blogger friends wanted to know where they can purchase it from and how is it performance wise. So I thought there would be many who are looking out for a decent highlighter brush. Unfortunately, we don’t have many options in Indian brands. You either get this brush in a kit or you have to get one from amazon or find it in local stores.  If you follow me on Snapchat (erica.eleganza) you would know my growing love for highlighters. So yes I have got my hands on most of the best highlighters like BECCA CHAMPAGNE POP, MARY LOU MANIZER, BENEFIT WATT’S UP HIGHLIGHTER, SIVANNA HIGHLIGHTER, SLEEK CONTOUR KIT and so on. I have a longggg list of products that I want to review on. So without ranting further… I would like to lay my cards and talk about this unknown highlighter brush.

Price – Rs. 230 with free shipping here.  Available in 3 options – Gold, Purple, Blue here

Product Description – There is nothing mentioned.

Packaging – The fan brush came with a plastic protector guard to keep it away from dust. Also, the shape of the fan brush remains intact with it.

My Experience with the Fan Highlighter Brush

The brush hair seem to be synthetic and its white in color. The package came within 3-4 days and it came in perfect condition. The brush felt soft in touch and I immediately used it on my skin (without washing it). The fan brush picked up the product very well and application was smooth enough. I am glad that the brush turned out to be good. I was worried that it would be a waste of 230Rs if it didn’t turn out as I wanted it to perform. My highlight is now on fleek with this brush. Its been almost a month now that I am using it and it didn’t lose it shape even after washing it although I always keep it in the plastic protector guard to maintain its shape. With this way, I can even carry it whenever I travel. Overall, this is a very good budget highlighter brush for your regular use.

Pros

  • Soft synthetic hair
  • Smooth application
  • Picks up right amount of product
  • Trendy packaging
  • Available in silver, purple and blue
  • Affordable
  • Easy to wash
  • Doesn’t lose its shape after several use
  • Travel friendly

Cons

  • Not for people who are looking for a brand
  • No product description

Ratings–   4.7/5

Recommendation – I was forced to do this review because I know many of my friends are looking for a budget friendly fan highlighter brush which works well. Its difficult to find a decent fan brush in Indian market. Even if we get it, we get them only in a brush set not single. So I thought I can help many by reviewing this product. Do give this a try as it does the job perfectly well.

 

Men’s Fashion – Live-in Thug Life Joggers Ft. Bewakoof Official

Hello All,

While she (Erica) is killing it with her T-shirt dress, I had to come out with a look for my mates. The peer pressure for fashion is totally unavoidable. More than peer pressure, the clothes you wear signifies your personality. While fashion keeps changing, your style is eternal just like your signature. This look is absolutely cool and casual but at the same time very versatile. Its an all black look, it is quite a challenge to sport an all black look. But if done correctly it can be your best bet. I am sporting a full sleeves black V neck t-shirt along with my favourite Thug life Joggers both from Bewakoof.com. With the help of little accessories like a mirror sunglasses, a dog tag chain, white shoes, a white watch and the bead bracelet the look turned out very classy, casual and smart. I have also tied an ombre shirt around my waist to give a dimension to my all black look. What I love about the outfit is that the fabric was very comfortable and perfect for the upcoming winters. Gone are the days where joggers were limited to be worn inside the house. Don’t believe what I say? Have a look at the pictures and decide for yourself.

You can also sport a black and white jacket, a denim shirt, a hoodie or a casual check shirt to complete the look. There are so many ways to play around with black. Men are totally picky about clothes and prefer buying things offline unlike women who loves buying online. What I have learned is that men always have very limited options when it comes to shopping. We always prefer brands for two things Comfort and Style. This brand provides Comfort, Style and amazing Fabric in the best possible price. Bewakoof has taken street fashion to an entire different level. They have come up with such interesting prints on their tshirts and joggers for both the genders that you can wear it anywhere …on a trip, a date or just to hang out with your friends. So guys if you like what you see. You can shop the look from Bewakoof.com. Also I totally insist you to check out the wide variety of Tshirts, Vests, Full Sleeve Tshirts, Joggers, Long Tshirts to grab from their fabulous collection.

Hope you like the post…See you guys soon… till then Adios Amigos!

OOTD : Go Sporty Chic with a T-shirt dress ft Bewakoof.com

Holla Guys & Girls,

It’s a long weekend and everyone has plans to chill and make a “paisa vasool” use of the holidays. The two things I love the most is: Travelling & Dressing. The moment there is a trip planned out I make sure I shop for my favourite outfit after all who doesn’t want to look best during holidays. For the love of cameras we all love dressing but for me comfort is equally important. If I am not comfy in my outfit it will show up on my body. I am at my upmost comfort in jeans, joggers, tee, capris and shorts while travelling. Recently, I have discovered a new love in the form of T Shirt Dress. If you have seen my Igatpuri pictures I am sporting a t-shirt dress and loved how light-weight it felt. Since then I am looking out for Tshirt dresses everywhere online. I was so happy when Bewakoof approached me and asked to sport a tshirt dress. For me, it was like a kid who has been pushed in a room full of candy. They have a kickass collection of t-shirt dresses and I went bonkers picking up just one. The colors were cool and funky like black, blue, red and maroon. The prints were top quality and looked damn trendy. And they kept all this at a very affordable price tag with no compromise in the fabric quality whatsoever. So without going on and on, I want to show you the way I sported my sporty yet chic tshirt dress.

I didn’t experiment much with the T shirt dress deliberately. I wanted the look to be effortless and easy. So I paired the dress with a choker on my neck, blue sunglasses and my favourite Adidas superstar shoes. I also tied a black and white jacket to give an edge to the look and carried a midsize black sling bag to give a girly touch to the look. There are so many other ways to style this dress. You can’t go wrong with a long shirt or kimono to layer the outfit, you can also pair it with a skirt or jacket. The best thing about wearing these T-shirt dresses is that you do not have to worry about your bodytype, size or shape. This will look great on anyone who is skinny to someone who is curvy. I am neither skinny nor too curvy. I am size M and I love it on my body.

Men who like effortless, comfy yet uber stylish clothes do try your hands on some of the Tshirts, Vests, Full Sleeve TShirts, Joggers, Long T Shirts. On this note, Guys I would like to shout out and say that “Pitcher abhi khatam nai hua hai yaar“. We have something cooking for Guys/ Men too. So stay tuned…and keep an eye on our blogpost,.

Friendship Day 2016 Celebration with Caprese Bags

Hello Friends,

It’s Friendship Day on 7th August and co-incidentally my birthday too. Most of the years my birthday falls on the same day as Friendship day. I truly value my friends and love making new friends. But over a period of years I realised making friends is easy but keeping them is a real deal. I have handful of friends who I come back to everytime when I am happy or sad. These guys have been with me through thick and thin. I am not very good at keeping in touch but inspite of this, some of my friends never fail to surprise me. They love me; respect me for the person I am. I want to thank all of my friends for being such a sweetheart and being my support system. What I have realised is that being a blogger has truly blessed me with some amazing people like Bidisha Banerjee, Ketakee Indap, Lisha, Priyanka, Clementia, Rajshree and there are so many more. These girls are true gem of a personality. I would never want to lose my friendship with them. Recently, when Bidisha visited Mumbai, we shopped, ate and laughed together in the streets of Linking rd, Bandra. It never felt that I met her for the first time. I have known her for years but after meeting our bond grew even stronger. She is now married and lives in Michigan, USA. Inspite of our long distance friendship, we always keep in touch through Snapchat, Whatsapp…Ohhh and how can I forget my first FACETIME with her. Whenever we had a chat it felt like I am talking to my soul sister. That’s what I love about our bond. And that’s what I believe every friendship should be. Distances should Only make the hearts fonder. On that note, I would love to show you a video from the brand called CAPRESE. I am sure we are all aware about CAPRESE BAGS. Bags are known as our BFF’s. Simply because they carry our load. A load of things like our makeup, jewellry, diary, hairbrush, cell-phone and list goes on. We cannot imagine our lives without our handbag. It is an Essential just like my Bestie. I am completely head over heels with the latest launch by CAPRESE. Do have a look at the video and share it with your besties and make them Smile. This is truly adorable. 🙂

Happy Friendship Day to my Lovelies!

LOTS OF LOVE, HUGS & KISSES ! <3

Fair & Lovely Powder Cream Launch Event + Product Review

Its been such a long time that my hand is even shaking to pen down my thoughts. I had no motivation lately coz of the hectic work schedule, friend’s engagement party, monsoon trip. All of this kept me busy throughout the weeks. Oh also how can I forget that I shifted to a new place last Sunday. But today I want to speak about a perfect Sunday that I spent in Bungalow 9, Bandra on 17 July. I was invited for the Fair & Lovely Powder Cream Event and I was really curious to know about the new product. I thought it would be a boring day where there would be a speech, goodies will be given and then we can leave. Guess what? It was a super engaging and fun event. We were engaged into games and activities back to back. There was team effort and active participation from all the bloggers. All girls gel around very well due to the team building activities. There were goodies for every activity, which was also a great motivation. In the meanwhile, bloggers were called one by one for product testing. We had our whole day scheduled. Time just flew away and then we had to wrap up. We clicked a lot of pictures before leaving and it felt like it was a graduation picture where all of us got in the frame and clicked a Happy Picture. Everyone had a great time and left with a happy face.

My Experience with FAL Powder Cream– I wore the product for the entire event and looked fresh and bright whole day long. I thought maybe I should try and spend a whole hectic week of my usual work-life and then decide on how it fares. So my usual Monday to Friday is at work spending 9:30am to 6:30pm. I applied the FAL powder cream at 8am and it felt like a moisturising cream, I applied it in dots on my forehead, neck, chin and cheeks. My face looked bright and fresh and the cream settled in quickly giving me a smooth, matte, bright look. There was no oiliness or stickiness whatsoever. There is no coverage or foundation in this cream. So even though it mattifies well, there was no need for a powder touch-up. I like a bit of coverage in my creams. So I ended up using my compact on this cream and was done for the day. During my lunch, I checked in mirror if I need any touch-up but my face was still matte and fresh. So I continued with work and around 5pm my friend asked to catch up after work for a friend’s house party. I thought now atleast I have to touch-up. To my surprise, the face still looked fresh and I only re-applied my kajal and lipstick. I reached home around 11pm and while washing my face I realised damn my face doesn’t look like I work all day. I usually use bbcream on an average day and I know how dull my face looks at the end of the day. I was super impressed and happy with the product and wore it to work daily. On days when I apply make up, I love using this as a face primer and trust me it works like magic as a face brightener + primer. There is no sunscreen protection in the cream, I wish they would add some SPF to the product; it would have been All-in-one. Overall, I Enjoyed the FAIR & LOVELY Powder cream. It is super affordable, it makes your face look bright and matte for the whole day, on my combination skin there was no traces of oiliness found. I wouldn’t say this cream would make you fair and white, no cream can do that. But it definitely makes you Bright. This would be a perfect product for a college goer to a working woman. After all who wants a heavy foundation feel every day?

Rating – 4.5/5

Recommendation – I am so glad that it is not like those typical product which claims to make you fair. It gives you a fair, bright and matte look for 14hrs. It would be perfect for college girls as well as working women. As the product is very pocket friendly, this is very well-suited for its audience. The product easily would last a month even if used daily. I will highly recommend this product if you are bored of the regular bb/cc creams. This product will be a value addition as it’s actually a unique product.

Hello Divas,

Wedding Guest dresses 2016
Wedding Guest dresses 2016

Dresses are my weakness! I enjoy buying dresses from international websites because I am so sure I will never find the print, pattern, quality in Indian market. Don’t get me wrong! But you may already know how difficult it is to get a beautiful gown in Indian market. So my birthday is approaching and I am collecting things for myself. If you know me already every year I’ve been wearing a beautiful evening dress/one-piece on my birthday. That’s because birthday is the only day when you are pampered more often than unusual (unless you have a Prince Charming or something :-P) Also I loveeee to dress up like a Princess on my birthday  even my birthday cake comes with the name “Princess” on it. I spent crazy hours on the internet to buy any stuff. You know being a blogger makes you a research expert looking out for reviews and images etc. So today, I want to talk about this website called Modabridal.co.uk. I have been drooling over the collection on their website. They have everything from Wedding dresses for the Brides to Special Occasion dresses like a Prom dress, cocktail dresses or a simple maxi dresses. Apart from dresses they have a wide collection on shoes and accessories like Veils, Tiaras, Jewellery sets. Isn’t that awesome? This is like buying your whole outfit from a website without running to different shops.

Currently they are running upto 90% off on all dresses which kept in awe. I was keen on trying and shortlisting few dresses for birthday. I kept on discovering more on the website and found that they also have dresses for mothers on the website. That is really cool!  It gave me an impression that they have a dress for every kind of women and occasion. They are definitely not very cheap but I would say they are not even expensive. I remember spending 4,500 INR on my last to last birthday dress. I am not saying go buy a dress for 5k. Not at all, but you can consider buying on special occasion like if you are a bridesmaid or on Christmas, a cocktail party of your bestie etc. Let me show you a glimpse of few dresses that I liked from every section.

One of the important factors while doing international shopping is the shipping policy. They have two shipping methods and they ship worldwide, one is DHL and EMS. DHL usually takes 2-4 business days while EMS takes 3-8 business days. Also if there is any quality issue with product they give a refund if supported with evidence like a photo/video of the product. Alternatively, you can live chat or send a mail to customer service for any doubts or clarifications. If you wish to buy any of the dresses above you can get it on Modabridal-Dresses Online UK.

Hope you like my post. Let me know which dress is your favourite and what is the occasion you would like to wear it?

Lots of Love,

Sugar Twist and Shout Fadeproof Kajal -02 Still Got the Blues Review

Hello Divas,

Sugar cosmetics Twist and Shout Fadeproof Kajal -02 Still Got the blues
Sugar cosmetics Twist and Shout Fadeproof Kajal -02 Still Got the blues Review

How’s the weekend going? Well, Mine is good …so far! Weekend means different for different people. For me its going for shopping, hanging out with friends/bf, chilling at home etc.  Some weekends are just like sitting at home chilling and enjoying online shopping. It’s raining cats and dogs in Mumbai and the climate is amazing. It is perfect to sit down with a cup of coffee and scribble.  So today I am scribbling about a fresh new product, this one is from Sugar cosmetics Twist and Shout Fadeproof Kajal -02 Still Got the blues. I am a sucker for Royal Blue things, whether it’s a blue top, shades, eyeshadow, eyeliner or a kajal. I think it just compliments my skintone a lot more than other colors. My life revolves around colored kajals/eyeliners. I do love eyeshadows but on days when I am in a hurry, my hand always reaches out to colored eyeliners. I have been using this kajal a lot lately and thought it’s time to pen down my thoughts.

Packaging – It comes in a very sleek form with a grip. The kajal comes in the retractable form and there is no sharpener required. I like the fact that they have given a soft grip to hold the kajal. It makes it easy to draw the line on your lids as well as waterline. Also there is no product wastage due to sharpening.

My Experience with Sugar cosmetics Twist and Shout Fadeproof Kajal -02 Still Got the blues-

I like this more on my lids than on my waterline. The shade is more like a navy blue color on me and stays around 9-10hrs which is brilliant. On my waterline, it doesn’t show up in one swipe, I need to swipe atleast twice for the blue to show up. As I have very watery eyes, the kajal stays only 4-5hrs on my waterline but it doesn’t smudge. It is richly pigmented and gives a metallic sheen on application. The sleek pencil makes it easy to play around and create different looks like a wingliner. I can make wing or double wing lines very easily with this kajal. Many prefer retractable kajals which makes it a total winner as there is no product wastage due to sharpening. Avoid putting too much pressure on the kajal, it has a tendency to break. If you are someone who likes to smudge the kajal you will adore this one as it gives an amazing look after it gets smudge. This product is free from mineral oil, preservatives, paraffin & parabens. Sensitive eyes, girls who wear contact lenses or glasses can definitely give this a try. It didn’t harm my eyes or caused any itchiness. I wore it for whole day long. Any eye make up remover can be used to remove this kajal. Though its not mentioned anywhere that it is waterproof. Yesterday, it rained heavily and I got drenched in the rain. Surprisingly, my kajal remained intact and I was super impressed with the formula.

Recommendation

I enjoy using this kajal on a daily basis. It is always in my make up pouch. Out of 5 working days, I used it 3 times a week. It can be your go-to-kajal where you have to leave in a hurry. If you go to see you get 2 in 1 benefits for 399 bucks which is not a bad deal at all. I highly recommend this product!

Which is your favourite product from Sugar Cosmetics? Did you try this kajal?

P.S – Product sent for consideration. My review remains honest & unbiased.
