My Review on Neesh Perfumes:

Neesh perfumes are one of a kind perfumes because they are cheap but contain very high quality fragrances. They have different types for men and women. The packaging is so damn amazing and cute. These pikpacks can even fit in the pocket and that is so cool.

I got two of them for the review

The first one is Amour De Oud which has a mixture of French Rose , White Lily and Mimosa.It has a woody kind of fragrance.

The second one is Sultana which gives a warm fragrance of amber and tea rose which is amazing and aromatic

In all , I really like their perfumes as they are affordable and are of high quality. They claim that it lasts up to 12 hours but mine lasted for a few hours. The best part is each spray costs less than Rs 1. They fit in the pocket and so are travel friendly. You can check all  the details here on their website.

So comment below and let us know if you have ever tried their perfumes ??

Enjoyy,

Review on Avon Extra Lasting Lip gloss in the shade Endless Watermelon.

I do not like using lip gloss a lot because I prefer lipsticks.But when I went through the Avon brochure,this lip gloss somehow looked really attractive to me.Lip gloss are used for any look, but for me it would go with a Smokey look.
Coming to this one, the packaging is really simple. It has a normal lip gloss packaging with a black cap and a wand for applying the lip gloss.I find the packaging simple and cute. It is travel friendly and even fits in the pocket. The wand helps to remove a proper quantity of the gloss and so it wont get wasted
or wont spill.

Talking about the texture and colour, the shade Endless Watermelon is a peachy golden gloss with shimmer.I really like the fact that it is pigmented and would give a smooth look on the lips. After applying it does feel a little bit heavy on lips, but that stays only for a bit of time.This colour can be used either on top of a lipstick or just the lip gloss. I like using this for my night look paired with a black Smokey look. The texture is quite moisturizing and smooth to use, so you might not need a lip balm for this.

IMG_20160829_113101-01-01

The staying power is really good as it stays for a longer time.It has a slight fragrance but that doesn’t linger for a long time.I like this shade a lot but I would like to try other shades too.The most important thing is that to buy Avon products can be bought only through their representatives which sometimes can be tedious to find.But for the price it offers, it is a really nice lip gloss and Avon generally has discounts every month on their products,so you might get them at a reasonable price.

In all, this lip gloss is an affordable one and if you like such type of lip shades you can go for it. I would skip it and try other shades.

Have you used any lip gloss from this range?? What do you think about this??  It would be great if you would comment below and share your favourites.

Enjoyy,

NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM IN PRAGUE – REVIEW AND SWATCH

22 Aug

Hey all,

NYX cosmetics has recently launched in India and is the talk of the town currently. Initially this brand was available on international sites or in Sephora but luckily they are now accessible through Nykaa.com. Isn’t that great?? This brand has good quality makeup stuff with many shades and varieties.

If you have been following our blog, I have already reviewed one of NYX soft matte lip cream in San Paulo , you can check the review here. Today I am going to review another shade from the matte lip cream range called Prague.

The names of these lip shades sound so classy . I am really fond of this range and so after searching for a shade for my skin tone, I chose Prague. Lets see how well it suits me??

IMG_8929-01

About NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague:-

Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy colour and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favourite.

Price–  Rs 600.

IMG_8945-01-01

Availability– Available on Nykaa.com.

IMG_8942-01-01

My Review on NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague:

IMG_8946-01 (1)

 

NYX Prague is one of the best shades I have ever used . Though they have many awesome shades, I always like to try shades which are similar to  pink, berry and red. It comes in a normal lip gloss kind of packaging and has a black colour cap on it.

It is a nice berry shade with a hint of pink and I am sure it will be a hit with the Indian skin tones. On application, the colour glides on smoothly and looks perfect on exfoliated lips. It is anytime better to exfoliate your lips, apply a lip balm, wipe the lip balm with a tissue and then apply this lip colour. As this is a matte lip cream, it is advisable to do the above step or else it can settle in fine lines and make them visible.

After applying this lip colour, it feels very light and stays for a longer time. I really like lip colours which stay for a longer time . Talking about the price , I feel its really affordable and it can be used for a longer time

IMG_20160822_112409-01

So , I would highly recommend this one for people who want to try something in berry shade. You will really like this one.

Let me know how you like this one and do follow us on Facebook and Instagram for further updates

Enjoyy,

IMG_8924-01-01

My Review on The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Lotion Review:

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Lotion comes in the light green transparent bottle with a white pump dispenser. As  it is not possible to carry such kind of bottles all around so I wish they introduce small sized bottles.

The moment you take some lotion from the bottle. It smells ahmazzzzing .. Yes that’s so heavenly. It soothes the mind and relaxes the senses . When applied on the skin, the skin feels soft and fresh. It looks like a white cream lotion and gets absorbed quickly. It feels super soft and light weight on the skin.

IMG_20160820_185416-01 (1)

Overall , I really am fond of this lotion . Its been priced the same as the The Body Shop lotions . You should definitely try this range . I would like to try the body butter from this range too.

How do you like this range?? Do comment and let us know about your experience.

Enjoy,

Sonal.

Hey all,
We all go through those hectic working days which stress us a lot  and gives us an urge to relax and go for a spa. But it is not possible to do that all the time. So The Body Shop introduced a range of Fuji Green Tea. Now if you haven’t checked that range yet, I recommend you to go and check it when you can. Recently I bought some stuff from The Body Shop and restocked my essentials. Today I am going to review one of my latest essentials which is The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash.

My Review on  The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash:

To start with The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Wash comes in a light green transparent bottle which is super handy and travel friendly. As it is transparent , you can actually check how much product remains inside it.

It is a super cute bottle which can be stored anywhere you like.  Now as soon as you will open the cap, it smells so awesome, like a fragrance which is so refreshing and will rest your senses. The texture of this the body wash is liquid and transparent in colour.

IMG_86906-01

I like the effect it creates after applying it on my skin. It lathers really well. It creates a spa kind of environment and is apt for those hectic days of your life. This can be used on a regular basis and is not overpriced . In fact I got this from their online store with a 20% percent discount on it. So you can keep on checking their online store for great deals.

I usually use this body wash and their body lotion together. The body wash does make my skin softer and better. It is my favourite skincare essential at the moment.

In all, you can try this body wash and it does work great. I will repurchase this once it is over and would like to try their scrub too.

Let me know, how do you like this one??

FACE PACKS FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN

Hey all,

Keeping your face clean is such an integral part of the regime. But do you think is that enough ??

I am sure your answer would be a NOOOOO. To keep our skin refreshed and glowing we try all the ways we can. Right from going to the parlour to following a CTM routine. Yet most of the times our skin remains dull.

We all feel a need to buy the products available in the market  and often they do contain a lot of chemicals and can cause harm to the skin. SO what is the solution then?? Our grandmothers and mothers have always had the skin secrets . They hardly felt the urge to go to the parlour and all they would rely on was home made stuff.

Acne is a big issue , it occurs at any age and at any occasion The face packs I use are very basic and have worked on my skin.So lets go the natural way to keep your acne at bay.
