Top 5 favourite products of the year 2012.

As the year comes to an end just as I reminisce over the events of the year, my mind also wandered into the makeup journey that I have been through this year. Lots of shopping, different brands, trial and error with eyeshadow colours and different looks, my skin and its issues, and of course trying to maintain this blog!!

So in terms of the products that i bought over the year, I realised that there were products that had become part of my daily routine in terms of both skin care and makeup.

Skin care: Fash Facewash.

I have been using this for over a year and even though I have used other face washes in between, there hasn't been a day when I haven't used this.

Lip care: Maybelline Lip Smooth Colour and Care in Mandarin.

I am in love with this lip balm. It gives the prettiest peachy tint to my lips and keeps them well moisturised.

For the eyes: Revlon Eyeliner pencil in Black 

This is on my waterline everyday whether I go out or not!!

For the Lashes: Lakme Eyeconic mascara. 

I don't wear mascara everyday but this is my go-to mascara on the days I decide to wear mascara.

For the hair: Biotique BioMargosa Shampoo and conditioner.

I alternate this with my medicated shampoo and my hair is really regaining it's shiny bouncy wavy nature.




There are a few more things that I do like, but they don't figure into the top 5 products.


What were your favourite products in this year?

REVIEW: Revlon eyeliner pencil in black


I have always found Revlon to be slightly out of my monthly budget so when Health and Glow had an offer on this eye pencil, I thought this was the best chance to try it out.

REVIEW: Fash Facewash

Facewash. If you walk into Health and Glow, you can see rows and rows of different facewashes. For oily skin, for dry skin, to make you whiter, to reduce marks, to prevent pimples. There are so so many different types. But the facewash I am going to talk about today is something that is found in medical stores as it is medicated

REVIEW: Maybelline Lip Smooth Colour and Care in Mandarin.

Lip balms have become a staple item in my bag. When I started medication for my acne I could not use any makeup (I still can't:P) and it really depressed me so I went on this spree of shopping for Lip Balms. This one that I am reviewing today is a lip balm that I have fallen IN LOVE with. I use it every day and I am looking to get another one soon (I've almost used it up).

I use this under lipsticks, as just a tinted lip balm, and as lip care. Love it Love it Love it

It has this pretty peachy colour and my lips just shine with this one.

It lasts quite about 3 hours or so with drinking eating all of that.

Ok I've just gone on and on talking about it.

Here are some pics.




Sorry about the pics. I was so excited when I bought it I clicked it on my phone. That's why the lipbalm is still unused.

Acne and me- Update!!

As most of my regular readers will know I have been battling with adult acne for a while now. For those who are new here, these are the links to the previous posts here and here.

ORGANIZATION: How to arrange your scarves.

Living in Bangalore, the weather is never so cold that we need really thick bulky scarves. Scarves are more of an accessory. Atleast for me. I don't own a lot but I do own different texures.

What I wore for my birthday!! and some Rambling

I had this idea that I would post this the night before my birthday. High hopes!! The eve of my birthday was spent in searching for the perfect accessories for my sari, getting wet in the rain in the process, and then setting question papers for the upcoming exams!

Because I am on holiday

Not having to get up and rush to work is a beautiful feeling when you haven't had a break in over 2-3 weeks!! To just be able to snuggle down further into your blanket when the alarm rings is a luxury I can now afford. Atleast for another 15 days :)

Of Carnivals and Colds

I was so proud of myself for having been on a roll and updating the blog regularly. Then again, pride comes before a fall right, and I fell sick :P

ORGANIZATION: Chains

I am a really organised type of person. All my jewellery, clothes, books are arranged in a particular way. One of the biggest problems I have is that I have limited wardrobe space and less space for storing all my accessories. Another issue is that when I put away the jewellery into boxes, I really don't know what I own and so I don't use so many pieces. So I have been trying to find different ways to store all my accessories such I can view them and yet keep them safe. Quite a tough task.

This post focuses mainly on the way I have organised the long chains that I own.

REVIEW: Maybelline COLORsensational Lipstick In Bronze Orange

Lipsticks. Somehow the minute you say the word makeup, lipstick is the first image associated with it. I was never a big lipstick person until now. Why? Because wearing lipstick shows people that I am definitely wearing lipstick and I always thought that it would make them look at me weirdly (not that I'm not looked at as a strange person now, I am but that's for different reasons.)

Anyway, those who read my blog regularly (I'm hoping there are some out there who do read my blog!!) will know that I have major acne issues and can't wear anything but on my eyes and lips.
Hence the new fancy is to buy lipsticks. Actually it was lipbalms and I have a number of those waiting to be reviewed but I chose to review this first, simple because it is the first lipstick that I bought. Not gifted, not handed down by my mom but I went and tried it, tested it and bought it.

Maybelline Coloursensational Lipstick in Bronze Orange. 

About a month ago I went on a mini makeup spree at Health and Glow. I did a haul post and now I'm finally putting up the review of the lipstick I bought.






The Colour- Peach  with pink undertones

The Finish- Creamy Satin

The Staying Power- 3 to 4 hours. Starts to fade and eventually there is no trace on your lips.

The Moisturising Power- Tons and more. In this dry winter season I need lipbalm under it but I don't I would need that in the summer seaon.

The Packaging- The colour of the package matches the name of the lipstick- Bronze Orange. Really isn't too hard to find in my collection of lipsticks (well I don't have that many as well :P)

The Price -250INR

My take on it- I really like it. A nice neutral shade that I wear to work everyday.For parties I glam it up by adding a gloss on top. For work, I go a slightly smoky look and pair it with this lipstick.

Will I buy again??
First I wanna finish this, that maybe I will.









That's my take on this product.
