Why I started this blog

Sometimes we are so caught in the present, we lose track of the past. But the truth, the present is a culmination of the events of yesterday.

I have put up reviews on makeup and cosmetics, and given my tips on beauty, but I actually didn't intend this blog to be about makeup only. It was supposed to be about fashion and lifestyle. A colleague of mine wears these drop dead gorgeous blouses and I wanted to start a blog with pictures of those and talk about styling for Indian clothes

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Maybelline Colour Bloom Lip Balm

I am a fan of lip balm. It is something that I use a lot. Vaseline lip balm was a standard in my bad for many years. The Himalaya. Then I alternated between Nivea and Lotus herbals. In fact I like the Lotus herbals cherry lip balm so much, I've been through about 3 or 4 tubes since I started using it. But then I decided I needed a change so I bought Maybelline Colour Bloom Lip Balm.

Biotique Bio Margosa shampoo- Day Two

So usually by the second day after washing my hair it starts to look a bit dull and I see more strands of hair in my hair brush. But it seemed kind of less today. My hair is still very manageable, soft and kind of shiny.
So I'm happy. Hoping that this shampoo maintains this. Will get back with a review in a few weeks.

Biotique Bio Margosa shampoo- Day One after

Usually the day after washing your hair is when the shampoo shows its true colours.

My hair today was just fine. Flyaways, yes of course, but that is always there. My hair was shiny and soft, manageable.
Dandruff control, too early to talk about that.
Looks like a good shampoo.

Lets see how it sustains through tomorrow

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Biotique botanicals Bio Margosa shampoo

I think one of the first things I started experimenting with would be different types of shampoo. Once i was old enough to decide I didn't like a shampoo, I started trying new ones. Clinic Plus was one of the first shampoos I used. Then there was Head and Shoulders, Pantene and then I gave a break and used on shikakai for a while.

Once Fiama Di Wills launched shampoo I was using that for a very long time and finally changed to Garnier Fructis.

When I changed to Garnier, that was around the time when there was a lot of talk about shampoos that contain sulphates and silicones and how it is harmful for the hair. There is this indian blog that had listed many shampoos and conditioners that are free from sulphates and silicones.

FIRST IMPRESSION: Lakme Eyeconic kajal




Since I am starting this as a new segment I thought I would be appropriate to start with a newly launched product- The Lakme Eyeconic Kajal. (I have the mascara as well but haven't used that yet. Have other mascara to finish first)

This is very obviously Lakme's answer to the Colossal Kajal by Maybelline.

First Impressions


The first impression is the best impression, right?
Not quite always. Some times,  certain items (and certain people) just grow on you. So even if your first impression isn't the best, it can change over a period of time.
Keeping that in mind I thought I would start a segment where I talk about what a new product that I have bought and what was my expectation and what was my impression.
It isn't fair to just dump a product because you didn't like it the first time around. Maybe if you give it time or find another way to use it, maybe pair it up with another product, you will start to like it.
There will definitely be a follow up review of the products featured in this segment.

Hope you find this useful
