5 Tips to Keep Your Skin Looking Fabulous in Summer

Guys, it’s hot outside. I mean, you know but god, it’s really hot. Like you are just sitting there , minding your own business and sweat starts trickling down your spine and wetting your pants. I am going to petition to go clothes-free during summer. I believe there will be many takers. Anyway, if you are the kind who still wants clothes to be compulsory, then fine. Be like that. Point being, summer can make it very tough to want to put on anything on face. Mostly because you feel like your face is melting. Obviously, you don’t want tonnes of makeup goop on your face. Which is why I have put together 5 skincare tips to keep your skin looking awesome. And not like you threw a giant pot of oil on your face before you walked out of home. Keep hydrated but be smart about it. Look, you can’t stop applying moisturizer all together okay? No. No, this is non-negotiable. You’ll have to wear something to keep your skin hydrated. I suggest replacing …

Product Review: L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes

I am not a mascara fan. I mean, I like it. Like normal people do but I don’t pee myself over a great lash lengthening product. And since fake lashes are taking over the world, mascaras are slowly becoming a little less important to the makeup kit. I have been what fake lashes can do and that is some is some glorious awesomeness. You can almost look like a different person. If that’s what you are aiming for. Why are you aiming for that though? Anyway, then I was trawling through Youtube as usual- no I do have stuff to do but Youtube is so insanely addictive. Anyhoo, we digress. So yes, I saw beauty bloggers going ‘OMG this masacara is the real deal ‘and all that and I thought, I must. I must buy it. Even if I don’t use it as much. So I bought it. And ladies and a few gentlemen (okay, one), I have to admit, this is the best mascara out there. No really, the best. Check out my review. …

Review: Cinepolis, 4DX, Viviana Mall

Last week, I got a chance to watch The Jungle Book. And not just once, but twice. Yeah, I watched it once when I booked my tickets on my own and the second time I was invited to watch it by the people at Viviana Mall at Thane. I watched it in 3D both times but the 4DX cinema had one more dimension to it and an interesting one at that. Here, the besides being able to experience the effects in 3d with the glasses, you also get to enjoy movement. So, basically, your seat moves with the characters in the movie. I am not childish- okay, maybe a little but I enjoyed this experience a lot. The seats move up when the character in the movie climbs up, and down when the movement is downwards. It also moves side to side but that seemed a little off when compared to what was happening in the movie. Occasionally, there’s also a burst of mist when there’s a splash in the movie and that’s a lot of …

These 2 Products are All You Need To Remove Your Makeup

You know what they say right? You should never, ever sleep with makeup on. Unless you are in a Hindi soap and that’s what you are required to do. But no, you are probably not, so you can’t. Or shouldn’t.  It causes breakouts, doesn’t let your skin breathe and basically makes your skin extremely tantrum-y. Which is never a good thing. But it can get extremely frustrating to have a long drawn cleansing routine and sometimes, you would rather just leave it on and then wake up in the morning with some major mascara goop in your eyes and panda eyes. That’s a great look. No really. Anyway, so if you are sick of having to do so much to take makeup off, I have threw out all the unnecessary stuff and you only have to buy two products and you get going. You’ll thank me when you can hit your bed earlier. Okay. First up is the Bioderma Sensibio H2O Makeup Removing Micelle Solution. Wow! That is a mouthful. This is micellar solution – which …

Product Review: Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

So the Fit Me! series has been a in drugstore hauls of various beauty bloggers around the world and for the most part, it has got glowing reviews. So when the Fit Me! range came to India, I really wanted to give it a whirl. I did go around shopping a couple of times but didn’t have the time to try the product and get my shade. Anyhoo, I made time for it this Saturday and got around to the Maybelline counter at Shoppers Stop. Before I review the product, can I please briefly rant about the women at the counters? Most of these women are rude and uninterested and almost always annoyingly pushy. When you ask to see a product, some seem so uninterested, it makes you not want to buy from that brand- which sucks because these are the people who could really sway you. Also, some of them are really unhygienic- smelly, unclean nails- and that’s not saying good things about the brand. Phew. *rant over* So, the Maybelline Fit Me range has …

Nykaa Haul and Website Review

Okay, you can’t exactly call this a haul because I only bought two items but they are expensive okay? Expensive enough for Nykaa to send me a free nail polish and all. I bought this. See picture below. So the thing is, besides Nykaa, I don’t know many websites that stock as many beauty brands and products. Do you know any? I recently tried beautybay.com but their parcel that was dispatched on the 6th of April hasn’t made it to my place yet so, yeah, confidence is nosediving. Majorly. Anyway, let’s get on with the review, shall we? First things first. The interface of Nykaa is extremely average and very, very sales-y. I mean , just look at all these offers. And this is when you just log on to the website.   So, yeah, I don’t like the interface too much. They could definitely use some decluttering of the website. Have things look cleaner, nicer and make the shopping experience more relaxed than having to catch a sale you might miss. They have a …
