Monthly Favourites: July

It already the end of July! Feels like I just wrote a monthly favourites for the month of June. Feels like school just started and 2 months is over. 2 months filled with so many events and activities and of course, me rushing to finish portions for class 12.

This month I did not use a lot of new products. The list of favourites is similar to some previous months except the lip product.


FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Maybelline Eyestudio Line Allure Liquid Eyeliner

I really don't know what I was thinking when I bought this. I didn't swatch or anything, I just simply popped into the shopping basket and billed it. This was about 5 months ago. I used it once that time and I did not like it. The line it drew was a think inconsistent irregular line and I have not touched this since then. 
So why an I putting up a First Impressions Post 5 months later? ummm, well, I just saw the post lying as a draft and that's when I even remembered this product existed. 


Makeup haul

Its sale season!!! Actually that is just an excuse to go shopping and it works every time.. :D
So here is all the makeup that I bought. So basically lots of new things to try and review over a period of time. What I'm most excited about is the Revlon Colourstay foundation and the Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick.
Here is a sneak peak at what I bought.


LOTD(s):5 everyday looks.

My everyday looks are simple and to the point, occasionally I do a little bit more. A bit like the notes I use to teach my class.
So here are the looks I wore for the past week.


LOTD: When I'm in a hurry makeup

Here is a quick and I mean really quick post on the makeup look I wore today. Simple and fast. I don't do a full foundation routine everyday to work. I don't have the time. I don't mind if my skin looks a bit natural with a few marks. I don't think my students care too much either. So here is the look followed by the breakdown of makeup.


REVIEW: Fiama Di Wills Shower Gels

Ok ladies, I have a confession to make. Until about 2 years ago I had never used anything but soap or besan flour (brilliant exfoliation) for a bath. I don’t have a particular reason for not trying a shower gel except that it never crossed my mind that I should. I mean soap worked for me, so why should I change from it?
Then Fiama Di wills happened. In fact I didn’t buy it. My dad did. He went to get himself a perfume and saw this and picked it up. In fact he used it before I did and he quite liked it.


REVIEW: Revlon Extra Fast Nail Enamel Remover

Hello People...

Fast food joints, instant noodles, 3 minute makeup looks, fast drying nail polish, we are all about getting things done quickly these days. Keep up with the times is this nail polish remover by Revlon called Revlon Extra Fast Nail Enamel remover.

The first time I used this product I didn't like it. I used it just like a normal remover- few drops on a cotton pad and wiped it across the nail and it didn't remove anything!! I was so disappointed.
Then the next time I used it, my sis was talking to me while I was trying to remove it and so I ended up holding the cotton pressed onto my toe for a few seconds, and then when I removed it, voila, the colour was removed without a trace. This happened literally in a few seconds. So yes that is the best way to use the remover is like how you remove your mascara. Pour a few drops on the cotton pad, hold on your nail, and then remove. I like to use a cotton bud to remove it from the cuticle region.
this is how much I have used up

maybelline Express finish in fuschia

just a few seconds of applying the remover.

What I like about this product
> It does remove your nail polish faster than other removers that I have used.
>It doesn't leave any whititsh streaks
> Regular nail polish remover odour
> Doesn't leave your nails feeling rough.

What I don't like about this product
You may need to use more than usual with this product especially for removing darker colours.

Will I buy it again?
yes I probably will..

Have you used Revlon Extra Fast Nail Enamel Remover? What are your thoughts?
