Product Review: Lakme 9to 5 Lipstick in Toffee Nexus

  I am not going to lie. I am a little worried about Instagram these days. Look, I am all for contouring and all that but when you start to get your footwear out and start lining your cheeks, it’s a little worrying. I mean, we are going to start picking up used tape, steel rods and what not and we may have to draw a line somewhere. Anyway, now that we have discussed that people are downright crazy, let’s discuss lippies. Yay. Nudes are always fun to wear. Because why not wear something that can make your lips look exactly like they do but just all the same shade. I have been on the fence about nude lipsticks but the more I wear them the more I like them. I was strongly recommended the Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick in Toffee Nexus. And here’s how it did. Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick  Feel: The lipstick is easy to swipe on and the it feels quite nice for a lipstick that does matte right. It doesn’t …

Store Review: Decathlon, Mumbai

So before I headed out for my cycling trip in the Himalayas, I made my way to the Decathlon store in Mumbai. Now, let me tell you this. If you are a sports enthusiast of any sort, you are going to be walking out with almost an empty wallet. I mean, this place has everything an adventure or sports junkie would need and then stuff you don’t need but want to buy anyway. It’s like the Sephora of the beauty world. The only bummer? It’s located in some godforsaken part of Thane. Let’s get into the store review, shall we? The Area It’s in some far off corner of Thane where no one goes. Sometimes people go there but I bet their phone is on roaming. No really, it’s too far. But a trip to this place is well worth your time.  Because it is tucked away in a corner, its visibility is practically zero which should affect sales, or so I thought. I was there on a sweltering summer day in the middle of …

3 Websites for Adult Toys Shopping in India

Hello. Hello. Hello. Been missing me? Say yes. Okay. Super. I love it when everyone agrees, even if it’s at gunpoint. So, I was away cycling in the Himalayas and that was lots of fun. It was a cycling trek and it tested the limits of my mental and physical strength but I enjoyed it. I am back in Mumbai now and my face is melting off and that’s a great way to get back into routine. I know it’s that time of the year when you just want people to stay the f*** away from you because it’s too hot to enjoy any sort of touch but nothing should come in the way of good sex, right? Okay, maybe the humidity does but there’s always ACs for that. Plus, the feel good factor when you get to see the bill at the end of the month. Anyhoo, I was talking to a couple of single friends of mine and we realised that we didn’t know where to buy adult toys from, here in India. …

Skin Service Review: The Home Salon

I have been wanting to review The Home Salon for a while now. I read an interview of the founder and owner of this service and she sounded good. I lie a little. She said that they make sure they take of the tiny things and have their service with candles and stuff and I was sold on that. Yes, I am awfully easy to please. Also, I am headed to Manali for a two week trip-eeee, so excited and I needed to look spiffy for the locals there. Coz who doesn’t love a plump, waxed and threaded woman from Mumbai up in the hills, right? Maybe they don’t notice the hair but I wasn’t taking any chances. So I went to THS website and booked an appointment there. Here’s a review. The Space Oh come on, it’s a home salon service. My home is very pretty, okay? The Service Ooh. They faltered. I went to the website and made the booking. The booking said I would receive a call from a particular number. I …

Product Review: Makeup Revolution London Ultra Blush Palette in Golden Sugar

Posting on my blog is the highlight of my day. I love the highlights in my hair. Sometimes, I used a highlighter to study during my exams. Subtle but you get it right? No? We are talking about highlight today. We are technically talking about this blush palette but ti’s so good at highlighting I use it for that. It doesn’t matter what I use it for, let’s discuss how it performs, shall we? Makeup Revolution London Ultra Blush Palette in Golden Sugar I bought this palette from this Nykaa. I wasn’t expecting much from the product. Actually, I wasn’t expecting anything at all. The product looked interesting from the pictures and for a blush palette it wasn’t priced too high, so I ordered it. So the thing is, even though it is called a blush palette, I think it’s better suited to highlighting. It does have two shades that could be used for contouring but these have a slight shimmer to them which makes me wary of using it for contouring. Feel: It doesn’t feel …
