Festive Makeup Look under $26 with Born Pretty Store: FOTD Full Face

Hey all, I have been purchasing makeup from Born Pretty Store for some time now. Since it is festival time in India, I decided to come up with a festive look with the makeup products that I got from Born Pretty Store. And guess what, the total price of products that I have used is under $26.


So, the products that I have used are:
28 Colours Natural Warm Eyeshadow Palette:$10.50
Moisturizing Immaculate BB Cream:$3.16
Black Liquid Eyeliner Pen:$2.85
Black Bent Longwear Mascara:$2.56
Bouncy Moisturizing Blusher:4.99
Red Moisturizing Lip Gloss:$1.14
Total: $25.20


I started off with a clean face and applied the BB Cream with a brush. The BB Cream is very moisturizing and adds a nice glow. Since the coverage is sheer, I dabbed in some of it on the spots and under my eyes to conceal. It did a moderate job.

The New Way of Playing With BuyBubbleFootball.com

Hello lovelies! Remember the days when hopping on that inflated bouncy house were the ultimate aesthetic pleasure that one could have ever wanted. And as we grew older, and not to forget bigger (in size, of course) our days of silly bouncing seemed to fade away. Sad, isn’t it?

But we shouldn’t forget that we live in the 21st century where there are innumerous brands which are working day in and day out to bring to us all that we ever craved for. One such, really thoughtful brand is Buy Bubble Football which makes sure that none of us miss on the childlike pleasures we all crave as adults.

AM to PM Brightening with VLCC Snigdha Everyday Skin Whitening Essentials kit Review

Skin whitening is a term I do not feel very comfortable about, as I do not believe in changing one's skin tone. However, if pigmentation is a major concern then, skin whitening creams or brighteners can actually make the appearance of the spots lighter and gives an even toned complexion. This is the reason I have tried and tested many brighteners. Recently I have been using the  VLCC Snigdha Everyday Skin Whitening Essentials Regime to combat my blemish marks and today I am going to share if it has worked.

MAYBELLINE THE COLOSSAL VOLUM’ EXPRESS MASCARA REVIEW

Hi guys, what’s up? How are you doing? Today, I’m going to review one of the most raved about drugstore mascara available in the market and I think at least nine out of ten people have it in their vanity- Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara. So, it definitely needs a standalone review in Beauty & Beyond and here it is.


Price: Available only for $4 only at Beautyspin

Packaging: It is a yellow tube and has shiny purple inscriptions on it. The bright yellow color is really attractive and looks really pretty sitting on my vanity table.

Product: The mascara has a light formula and the wand is pretty interesting. The bristles of the wand are more and denser than any other mascara. The fragrance of the mascara slightly bothers me as I find it very strong. It has a jet black color.

Colorbar Nail Lacquer Pro Mini Collection - Pop Heart Review

Hola pretty ladies,The monsoon season has befallen in Delhi and Mumbai equally--and has been more than generous in drenching us in all its wet glory. And no amount of waterproof makeup can stand intact in front of the wet gods. So how does a makeup addict bring happiness in his/her life and fill colours in their otherwise gloomy or just so to say, moist and slow days. Ofcourse, by the power of a colourful manicure! Bright tips never seem to disappoint.


So today i am going to review a mini nail polish set from the house of Colorbar USA. So these nail paints are from the Colorbar pro mini Pop Heart range and honestly, the tiny little glass bottles with black caps are a delight to look at. The collection comes in a set of four-- a bright neon parrot green, a bright yellow, a super bright orange and a neon bright pink. So basically all the shades in the range are fun colours with a neon edge to them, and the shades are all so bright that it might get a bit difficult for some of us not so free spirited to actually wear them. But for the fun loving women, these shades are sheer bliss.

Incolor Matte Me Liquid Lipstick 403 and 415 Review and Swatches

Hello my lovelies! I am back today with a product review which has been majorly raved in all beauty spheres as of late. Oh yes, I am talking about the Incolor Matte me liquid lipstick range. And given its fame, the range has been exploited and black marketed on some instagram stores like crazy. A product which once retailed at 180 (latest lowest rate 250 INR), has also been sold at 600 a piece at some stupid Instagram makeup selling store. So beware sweeties, do not fall for such crunches.


Everything's pretty good about the range except that it has almost no nude colours, neutral yes, they have, but no nudey-nudes if you know what I mean! The price range is good, the product quality is great and the shade range is wide with lots of different undertones of pinks, reds, purples and oranges, but no nudes! How sad can the situation be. Existential crisis for a nude lover. SIGH!

Tearaja:Through the Thick n Thin of Health

Since the past 7 years my day has been beginning with a hot cup of green tea, and that is without fail, no matter where I am. However, I am confessing that I am not a big fan of the general tea, just a cup of green tea a day is all I consume. So, when Tearaja contacted me for reviewing their range of tea, I was a bit confused as I was not sure what to expect and what I should be reviewing. But when I received the package, I was quite fascinated with the description and flavors of the tea.
