My Review on Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Crush:-

I always find tinted lip balms handy and useful. Whenever its a lazy or no makeup day, just a swipe of tinted lip balms on the lips and you ready to go. Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Crush is a tinted lip balm from the Baby Lips range. It comes in a red tube packaging which can be twisted.

The texture is smooth and it glides on the lips well. When applied on the lips, it gives a light red tint which looks a bit shimmery and nice. I usually use them sometimes before using a matte lipstick, they make my lips feel smooth and hydrated. It is not that pigmented though and will need more swipes on pigmented lips.

The Baby Lips range is one of my favourite range. No matter whichever lip balms I keep on purchasing, I get back to this. Berry Crush is definitely my favourite lip balms from Maybelline. What is your favourite Lip Balm??

Enjoyy,

Sonal.

My Review on Lakme Radiance Compact Review-

Lakme Radiance compact is one of the basic compacts from the brand which has limited shades for Indian skin tones.It comes in a red case with a mirror and a buff inside. With the buff, it can be applied smoothly , but I prefer to apply it with a compact or a kabuki brush. It works well with Indian skin tones. I have combination skin and it really works well with my skin. Though I have acne prone skin, it never harmed my skin or cause me some break outs. At the price, it is a reallt affordable and good compact

In all, this compact is good for touch ups especially when your skin feels oily and it comes at an affordable price.

Enjoyy,

Summers are here and so my hair woes are back. In summers, my hair and scalp tends to be oily , messy and unmanageable. I have incorporated a lot of hair products this time to keep my hair woes away. I have been using some Bblunt products off late and they are just so good for this season. I have already reviewed Bblunt Back To Life Dry Shampoo , you can read it here. Today I will be reviewing their Bblunt Climate Control Anti- Frizz Leave- In Cream.

IMG_0077 (1)

Looking at this product, first of all this comes in a black colour bottle and with a pump dispenser. It comes in two sizes i.e 150gms and 50gms. I really like the concept of introducing the mini size of this product as you can use it and then decide to buy the bigger version of it later. The bottle is convienient to use and can be used in your travelling kit.Coming to the texture of this product, it looks like a white cream but the consistency is like a conditioner. I used it according to the instructions given.

IMG_0130 (1)

I applied it on damp hair or towel dried hair. I took it in small quanitity and applied it at the ends and midlengths of my hair and styled it normally. I really liked the effect it left after applying it. My hair were not messy and greasy at all and they were manageable. This is one of my favourite products from their range.

In all, this product can be used in any climatic condition. You can but the smaller one to try it at first and if it suits your hair, you can use it further too.

Enjoyy,

Sonal.

Bblunt Back To Life Dry Shampoo Review

29 Mar

Hey everyone,

Today I will be writing a review on a product which has been my HG product since a month now. Looking at this product , I can definitely say this line “Bad hair day is just a myth”. Summers have already began and managing them is such a big task. My hair becomes more oily and unmanageable in summers , so I have to keep washing them every alternate day. But this stuff has been the solution for my lazy days.

Bblunt Back to Life Dry Shampoo Review:-

Instant freshness is now a spray away.This dry shampoo (no water required) does a smooth job of absorbing excess grease & grime and revamps your hair in seconds. Don’t leave home without it.

Ingredients

Micro-crystalline starch. Specially created for Indian hair.

How to use product-

Shake well before use.

Hold can in an upright position,

Six inches away from the hair and spray evenly, close to the roots.

Leave on for two minutes.

Massage and brush thoroughly.

Price : Rs 200 for 30 ml and 550 for 125 ml on nykaa.com.

My Review on Bblunt Back to Life Dry Shampoo:-

Dry Shampoos normally come in the form of powder spray, which when sprayed on the roots of the hair make them more mangeable and shiny.Bblunt Bck to Life Dry Shampoo comes in a silver spray can with a transparent nozzle on top of it. I use it according to the instructions, shake the bottle well before I use. Hold it six inches away in an upright position and spray it evenly on the roots. When I spray the product a white kind of powder sometimes stays on my hair, but it goes away after I comb my hair.

So does this actually get my hair back to life?For me, yes it does. My hair becomes soft , shiny and mangeable, just like it looks when I wash my hair. It has solved my hair woes and I am totally happy with it. If you trying this dry shampoo for the first time and are sceptic of using it, you can purchase the 30ml bottle and try it. I have used up one bottle and have already bought the bigger and the smaller one again.

I totally recommend this product and its worth a try!!!!

Enjoyy,

Sonal.

Price: Rs 315 on nykaa.com

My Take on Lakme 9 to 5 Creaseless Lpstick in Fuschia field:-

Fuschia field is a vibrant and bright pink shade. It comes in a golden packaging and looks super elegant. To be honest, I am a bigggg fan of Loreal and MAC lipsticks so never ever thought of using any other brands. Lakme always had some god collections and shades, but I feel this is the best one. It is super creamy, pigmented and doesnt settle in fine lines. This can be used for the day and night look.The best part of this lipstick is it contains SPF15 and essential oils which is good for the lips.

For the day and night look, this can be teamed up with a swipe of kajal. It is totally apt for those cute lovey dovey dates and proffessional work parties.It instantly makes the face look brighter and stays for a longgg time. I usually prefer applying lip balm , then wiping it off and then applying this shade. This shade can suit most of the Indian tones but as it is a brighter one , you need to wipe the excess with the tissue. If you face the problem of dry lips, then it is god if you apply the lip balm before applying this

Conclusion:- Fuschia field is definitely about”Something hot.. Something bright… Something pink”, If you looking for a bright lip shade , then this one is definitely the one for you.

Stay Fit with these Fitness Apps

Being fit seems to be the priority of every individual in today’s world. We go to gym for a workout , walk about an hour daily and eat healthy.. There’s so much to do for all the fitness freaks. But what about the days you cannot go for a workout or have no time for it or too lazy to do it basically. That’s when technology plays a role. Today I will be listing down my personal favourite fitness apps for you which can be used anywhere and at anytime. These apps can be downloaded on your Smartphone and can be easily used.

1) Pedometer

No time for those tedious workouts?? Prefer a walk instead, then this ones for you. This app is my go to app as I use it daily. You can count your steps and monitor your calories burned and the distance covered on this app.You can pause it any point of time and resume it again. It also has basic tabs for resetting the count whenever you want. Totally handy and easy to use…

2) My Calorie Counter

 

Interesting name?? Isn’t it.. I am a complete foodie and the word calorie is something I never cared about until I really wanted to lose weight. Keeping a track of eating within 1200 calories is difficult. So My Calorie Counter helps me in tracking the calorie count. Initially when you install this app from Google Play store, you have to sign up with some basic details. After logging in, they ask for your basic goal , I wanted to lose weight. It is a very simple and basic app but remembering and updating what I ate the entire day is a bit difficult . So I keep on updating it meal wise. The best part is they give you personalized plan of calorie intake according to your height and weight. So go ahead and install this.. Its a great app..

You can download it on Google Play Store here and on ITunes Store here.

3) FitbitScreenshot_2016-03-17-20-31-00-1
Fitbit is an app which can be used with Fitbit Surge, Charge HR, Charge, Flex, One or Zip tracker with your Android device. You can connect the app with these and track daily goals , exercise regime, manage calories. The best part to stay motivated is to compete with your friends and this app allows you to do that. So its fun using this app always.
