App Review : Zooty, Beauty and Salon Deals

You’ve probably heard of Ziffi. Well, recently they went to the dressing room and got themselves a snazzy makeover. They come with a fun name now- Zooty – but you can still get some great salon deals on the app. Since this was right up my alley, they got in touch with me and I was pretty gung ho about doing the review. So, here’s what I thought. They have an okayish rating but that could be because they changed and all. The interface is quite cool and colourful and that is my thing so I was instantly drawn to it. Even the heart icon they use is quite fun. Also, while loading, the slide screens are doing their thing.   Then, you must sign in, which is kind of a bummer because I would really like to see what they’ve on offer before I make that kind of commitment. And they ask your gender as well.   Once you’ve given them all this info, it instantly takes into account where you are located and suggests …

The Iba Halal Care Mini Haul

There’s a lot of things to be said about Halal products. Mostly, people don’t believe they are halal at all. But this brand, this brand has a certification. Of course, I did mostly find only skincare products and not much makeup, but that’s a start right? So, this brand- Iba Halal Care- has been started by two women- non-Muslim, who quit their jobs to launch this beauty brand. The brand isn’t very popular yet but is definitely available online. And I spotted atleast a few stores in Gujarat. I did, of course, buy products from them and here’s my mini haul. Watch it here:  

App + Salon Service Review: Timesaverz

I have been away and travelling to shop for my brother’s wedding which happens in September. Also, I was under the weather and covered with 4 blankets. Not fun. I got an email from the people over at Timesaverz who said they wanted me to try out their beauty services to which I promptly agreed. Then, I had to leave town and unless the beauty lady came tagging along which would be slightly awkward, this would have to wait. So I decided to have the service later. And I did. Here’s my review of the app and the beauty services provided. They gave me a Rs.1000 beauty voucher to use. I used the code they gave me in their app when I booked the appointment. I downloaded their app for to test things out. So, before you say anything at all the app asks you where you live. And then you hope that your area is included in 294 places that it serves. I made it through and went straight to the beauty services. I …

Beauty Updates: Organic Harvest opens New Store, Schwarzkopf launches Academy

Hey. I missed this. But then it was a tough time for family and I didn’t feel like talking about much here. Anyway, I am back and it’s time to talk beauty and skin. I went to Dubai and I will be discussing my makeup haul from there soon enough. I went a little crazy, to be honest. Picking up everything I could get my hands on and annoying the ladies by being extremely specific. I am not entirely sure but I saw couple of them buying guns so I am venturing a guess. Before I left, I had a whirlwind week. Back to back events and interesting ones at that too. So, here’s what happened. Organic Harvest Opens Outlet in Juhu Organic Harvest, a brand that serves up organic, paraben-free products, launched its 11th outlet in Juhu. All of us bloggers made our way there and we got a bunch of products to try as well. The brand has an exfoliating scrub that seemed extremely interesting. While the usual suspects are all there- creams, …

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 …

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: 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. …
