Hi, guys! Hope you are doing well. Today, I’ll be reviewing something that I have been loving since I got my hands on it. I have been raving about it on my Instagram and Snapchat if you noticed. It is the Plum Natur Studio All-Day-Wear Kohl Kajal. Ever since I heard bloggers talking about this on their blogs, I thought to try one myself and see the results.

Before starting with the review let me share a few things about me. I have extremely oily eyelids. Both my upper and lower waterline are oily and no eyeliner (even some waterproof ones) stays for more than 3 hours on my eyes. I was frantically looking for a kajal that would stay on my eyes forever. Finally, when I read about Plum’s Natur Studio Kohl, I knew this the one that is going to be my best friend for life.

Price- 425INR

Packaging- The packaging of the Plum Natur Studio All-day-wear Kohl kajal is definitely distinct from the other eyeliners available in the market. It is a bright purple pencil with a regular plastic cap. It does not come with any outer packaging.

Texture- The texture of this Plum Natur Studio All-day-wear Kohl kajal is hands down the best I have ever tried. It is smooth, almost like a gel eyeliner packaged as a pencil liner. It is slightly comparable to the Kryolan Ikonic Gel Eyeliner Pencils, Kryolan being a bit smoother.

Application- As you might have assumed reading about the texture of this product, the application is really smooth and even. It glides on easily on the leads because of the gel-eyeliner-like texture. It takes very less time to apply the kajal on both the upper and lower lids.

Wear Time- The wear time of this Plum Natur Studio All-day-wear Kohl kajal is amazing. The company claims it to be a long-lasting kajal which is absolutely true. It stayed 10 hours on me! I still cannot believe this. I have been trying this for more than a week and every time it lasted on me super long, 8 hours in average. Also, it has a waterproof formula that makes it my favourite.

Ups-

  • Trendy, sleek and travel-friendly packaging.
  • Comes with a sharpener.
  • Soft, gel liner like texture.
  • Applies smoothly and evenly.
  • Long-lasting.
  • Completely waterproof.
  • Doesn’t irritate my eyes.

Downs-

  • Sharpening causes wastage of product.

My Experience with Plum Natur Studio Kohl Kajal

This is so far the best waterproof eyeliner I have ever used. It has a very smooth, creamy, almost gel-liner-like texture. It’s not drying, gives a smooth and even application. The best part, it is long-lasting as the company claims. Stayed on me for 10 hours surviving the hot and humid weather of West Bengal. Completely waterproof, does not wear off even after being wriggled with soap. Comes out without being a mess when removed using a makeup remover. This has become my favourite eyeliner and I am definitely going to stock a few more. The sharpener that came with it is a great one. It comes with a tiny tool to clean-up after using it.

I highly recommend this kajal to everyone if you like creamy, jet-black and long-lasting eyeliners. The Plum Natur Studio Kohl Kajal has a bit higher price tag but it is something you would like to spend your money on. I can vouch for that. Let me know if you used this kohl and it made it to your favourites.

I hope you found this review helpful. Until next time, be safe & keep smiling!

Hi, guys! Hope you all the doing great. Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and most of us are busy choosing the perfect gift for our moms. Today, I am going to share with you guys some gems that my mom loves to use and are definitely effective for everyone.

Mommies are the most careless persons on earth when it comes to their skincare. They work hard for the family, to feed us and takes care of every single trivial thing for us and forget to care for themselves. This Mother’s Day, we can pamper our moms by gifting what they deserve- some skincare love!

My mom used to do nothing for her skin before, then I forced her to maintain a proper skin care regime. She, like an obedient child, followed my instructions and now she does not skip her skin care routine no matter what! My mom has normal to dry skin. These are the products she uses every single day-

1. Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Facewash (Buy here)

Now this one is my mom’s all-time favourite. This face wash is actually good for oily and acne-prone skin as it claims to have the anti-bacterial power of Neem. I myself have used this and loved it. It’s great to take away any oil from your face, plus, it keeps breakouts at bay.

2. Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Serum (Buy Here)

This product is supposed to fight seven skin problems including aging and wrinkles. My mom is 40 something and she needed to include an anti-aging serum in her skin care regime.

3. Fab India Vitamin E De-Pigmentation Cream (Buy Here)

I love Fab India for their pocket-friendly skincare products that are effective too. I have used and loved their Orange and Cinnamon scrub so decided to make my mom try this de-pigmentation cream. She had a few blemishes on her cheekbones which have reduced a lot using this product. It is very lightweight cream with the perfect moisturization power.

4. VLCC Matte Look Sunscreen Lotion (Buy Here)

Actually, I bought this for myself but it somehow did not suit my skin so I gave it to my mom. She uses it every day, even if she is staying at home and not going out anywhere. It is a part of her post-shower skin care routine. Moms who spend most of the time in the kitchen must use a good sunscreen with good SPF to protect themselves from the heat that comes from the stove.

5. The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish (Buy Here)

When I asked mom to pick something from her shower that she loves the most, she picked this one up. This was bought by me for myself, but when I went on with the Gia Bath and Body Works Coffee Body Polish, I gave it to my mother. This thing has a delicious smell! It makes your skin soft, supple and moisturized, plus, its scrubbing particles effectively yet comfortably removes dead skin.

So, these are the 5 skin care items that my mom swears by. The best thing about these products is these are suitable for all skin types. You can assemble all of these in a nice basket along with some chocolates, flowers, and handmade cards and gift it to your mommies. If you try this idea for this Mother’s Day then don’t forget to let me know her reaction.

What are your plans for tomorrow?

Hi guys, I hope you all are doing well. Today, I am going to write about a product that I have been using for almost a month. Hair for Sure (click here to visit their website) is a basically a hair regrowth treatment which assures revitalization of hair and arrest hair fall. Although my hair apparently looks pretty voluminous but it has several issues. These issues include severe hair fall, dandruff, and roughness. These are the reasons why I wanted to try this tonic badly when I was approached by the brand.

Price- 800 INR for 150ml

Packaging- The Hair for Sure tonic comes in a plastic bottle with a plastic screw cap. It is also secured with a tight plastic cap underneath. The bottle comes in an outer packaging which is as shown in the pictures. The box also contains a nozzle which is supposed to be attached to the bottle for dispensing of the product. Overall, I liked the packaging as it is sturdy, travel-friendly, spill-proof and worth the price you pay.

Hair for Sure Hair Regrowth Treatment Review | cherryontopblog.com

Product- The product is a slightly greenish water-based liquid which is not sticky at all. It is nothing like a hair oil. It has a particular smell to it which I cannot explain to you properly, but the smell reminds me of those herbal hair treatments. If you have a sensitive nose then the smell might bother you, but the scent doesn’t linger for a long time. I found the smell mild and soothing. This product is supposed to be a leave-in tonic, thus, it is formulated as a non-sticky, non-oily, water-based product which does not make your hair look greasy.

How To Use- The directions to application is mentioned on the outer packaging. The tonic is advised to be used on a consistent schedule to notice the result. You have to take 4-8ml of product and rub gently on all over the scalp. Do not massage it. It is advised to use the product twice every day to see an optimal result. The best would be to apply it after washing your hair. Do not rinse off after applying.

How Does Hair for Sure Work?

Hair for Sure is formulated with the breakthrough Rutexil Growth Complex which-

  • Reactivates hair follicles to stimulate hair growth.
  • Comprehensive 4-step performance formula.
  • Clinically proven to help accelerate hair growth.

This product is approved by World Medical Trichologists Association (WMTA).

My Experience with Hair for Sure- Hair Regrowth Treatment:

As I mentioned earlier, I have been using this product for almost a month. I have several issues with my hair, mainly hair fall. I have been using this product twice a day. I use it on the wet scalp in the morning and on the dry scalp at night. I like to use it either with my fingertips or with a cotton ball. During this time period, I have missed only a week. Other than that, I have been using it religiously. When it comes to my remark, I would say that it has succeeded in reducing the hair fall to a great extent. I no longer face hair fall issues special while combing through my hair or during washing it. So far as hair growth or regrowth is concerned, I have not observed any satisfactory result.

Overall, this product is really effective if you are facing any severe hair fall issues. I would like to use this for another month, continuously, to see if it actually helps in the regrowth of my hair. Hair for Sure does not make your hair smooth, silky or shiny and it does not treat dandruff.

Hair for Sure can be found online on almost all the leading e-commerce sites like Amazon, Flipkart, eBay, Snapdeal, Nykaa, Purplle etc.

That’s it for the review. I hope you found it helpful. If you like this then don’t forget to leave your comments. Also, this post is my first post after migrating to WordPress. Let me know what you liked, what you did not. See you in my next post. Till then, be safe & keep smiling!

Disclaimer: Athena Life Sciences was too kind to send the product to me for reviewing. However, my opinion is unaffected by the fact.

There really is nothing desirable about unwanted hair.  When we look in the mirror, we want to feel appealing and hair in the wrong areas can bring down our self-esteem.  Looking and feeling our best boosts our self-image tremendously.  Getting those results isn’t as easy at home as you would get by going to a spa for a professional treatment.

The question you have to ask, though, is whether laser hair removal is the best decision for your personal needs.  To answer that, you need to look at several factors.

How Convenient are Cosmetic Clinics?
Years ago, you had to make an appointment at a spa only during regular operating hours.  Now, clinics are more accessible to their clients, remaining open for longer hours.  It makes it easier to set an appointment at an hour convenient to you.  With so many cosmetic practices in operation today, it wouldn’t be hard to find one located close by.

Procedures are More Efficient
Shaving day after day is an unpleasant task with minimal results.  It has to be repeated frequently, wasting a lot of time.  Think about how many hours you spend shaving over the course of a month.  Laser hair removal procedures take approximately one hour and results in the hair not growing back right away.  Less time spent removing unwanted hair means more time doing other things.

Less Painful Than You May Have Heard
Shaving doesn’t generally hurt, but have you tried waxing?  You can possibly be burnt by hot wax, but no matter how careful you are, you cannot avoid the pain of tearing off the wax strips.  It hurts!  By comparison, laser hair removal has minimal discomfort.  It can feel like a rubber band snapping continually against your skin or can make the skin feel heated.  Most clinics offer a numbing agent and many lasers now have a cooling device on them to reduce the sensations.

Cost Comparisons to Factor in
You also need to factor in the costs associated with hair removal.  The expense of going to a spa to have a professional perform a procedure may sound expensive, especially since you need to return several times for more permanent removal.  However, you need to take a close look at the cost over time of doing your own removal at home.  Whether you are shaving or waxing, you need to think about how much time you spend, the cost of the razors, creams, depilatories, wax kits, and so on.  How much are you spending in a year?  In two years?  In a lifetime?  The totals can be staggering to look at.  It makes the cost of laser hair removal seem significantly smaller by comparison.

Final Considerations Before Making a Decision
You need to keep in mind that there are potential issues with hair removal.  Just as home methods can cause harm with hot wax burns or cuts from a razor, there are side effects with using professional lasers.  Special skin tones and hair color combinations require specially design lasers for proper treatments.  Certified technicians are trained to know how to properly treat those variations.  A bit of research and asking the right questions can avoid any problems with that.  Check to make sure your clinic is reputable and you should be satisfied with the treatment results.

I hope you found this article helpful. I hope this post has answered all your queries regarding Laser Hair Removal.

It would be an understatement to say that I dislike summers. Bangs stuck to the forehead, makeup melting at a lightning speed and pimples attacking my face are just some of the problems that my super oily skin has to face during summers. Needless to say, summers and dog days are synonymous for me. However having dealt with such a skin type for more than 5 years, I have learned about some amazing tips which help me in combatting it to an extent. Since I am an  ardent reader of beauty blogs, I have discovered some pro make-up artist tips which have helped me in doing the same. I am going to share those very tips and tricks with you in this post. Let me get started with them!

 

Have a break-up with harsh cleansers

I was under a misconception for a long time that by using harsh cleansers, oil will be away from my oily skin for a considerable amount of time. Clearly, I was under a false impression. I wondered how my oily skin still felt so oily just within minutes of washing it. It’s after a bit of research that I discovered that I was wrong. When you use a harsh cleanser, it strips off moisture content from your skin. In a bid to compensate for it, your skin produces even more oil. This is why it is always recommended to use a gentle cleanser that removes oil and impurities without creating dryness on the skin. My favourites are Forest essentials Kashmiri Saffron cleanser and Dove beauty moisture face wash. Use Jabong coupons to purchase them at discounted prices with the bonus of Cashback.

Don’t touch makeup the wrong way

How many times have you looked into the mirror after a long, hot day and realized where did all the foundation go? The obvious next step after seeing this is taking out the compact from your purse and touching up your face to mattify it. But wait! Think for a moment! Does putting on powder on an oily skin even make sense for you? The right way to touch-up makeup is by first blotting away the excess oil by using a blotting sheet and then using compact.

Use a moisturiser

Another widely spread misconception among oily skinned girls is that they should not use a moisturiser. Do not think of moisturiser as your enemy. To keep your skin hydrated, it is essential to use a moisturiser. Not using a moisturiser will also make your makeup look cakey. Oily-skinned people should user a water based moisturiser it hydrates skin without making it greasy. These types of moisturisers are lightweight in texture and get in absorbed completely. Clean & Clear Skin Balancing Moisturizer is much-raved drugstore option. You can find a huge variety of moisturisers online on Limeroad. Do not forget to avail Limeroad coupons via CashKaro to get awesome discounts and Cashback offers to lower your bill.

Layering is the key

Be it eyeshadows or blushes, you need to learn the art of layering. If you are fed up of your beauty products fading away within a short span of time, start layering. Layer a powder blush over a cream blush or stain to prolong the staying power. Use cream based eyeshadows underneath powder eyeshadows. Secure pencil eyeliners with a liquid eyeliner on top to avoid fading and smudging.

Seal your efforts with a fixing spray

Picture this: You spend more than an hour in front of the mirror, putting on multiple products on your skin labelled with labels like “Long-stay”, “non-comedogenic” and more. It’s been only 10 minutes for you in the sun and you can already feel your makeup evaporating. That is super annoying, right? Bid au revoir to such a painful situation by getting hold of a makeup fixing spray. A makeup fixing spray should be sprayed from an appropriate distance. It will help you in making your makeup last for long hours in spite of the sweltering heat you will be in.

The lips have to be visible for them to be considered beautiful. Therefore, most people with thin lips are in the struggle to enlarge their lips and those with already large lips apply lipsticks to make them more pronounced. It is only through plumping your lips that you can be able to make your lips as beautiful as in your dreams. There are a variety of natural substances that can be used to plump your lips available in the market. The following are the best ways to plump your lips:


1. Exfoliate
Exfoliation is the removal of the outer layer of dead skin cells. There are some the products used to peel. Consider using these products instead of peeling your lips manually to prevent mechanical damage. Exfoliation allows new younger lip skin to appear and collagen to get more nourishment. A significant role enhancing because when you remove the outer layer, it allows maximum flow of blood hence nutrients and oxygen reach the skin cells for food. Kiss me is one of the scrubs that you can consider for exfoliation. Just avoid over exfoliation because the skin around the lips is thick in regenerating new cells.


2. Apply a lip plumper
The best lip plumpers are readily available in the market to eat lower prices. Choose lip plumper that contains ingredients that promote the health of the collagen. Collagen is responsible for the elasticity of the skin hence prevents wrinkles and fine lines. Intensive injection lip plumper contains vitamin A that is great for the health of the skin. There are those that contain hydraulic acid that is useful for keeping the skin moisturized for a longer period.

3. Apply a stimulating product
 Apply any lip gloss that contains pepper and cinnamon. These two substances irritate the lips causing swelling that increases the volume of the lips. Under normal circumstance swelling is a sign of a problem on the affected side but for this case, swelling means that the lip gloss is working actually. The swelling may be slightly uncomfortable but is totally harmless to your skin.

4. Avoid using darker lipsticks
The primary aim of plumbing the lips is to make simply them more visible. Bright colors are more visible compared to the dull ones. Therefore, to achieve the objective of pumping bright colors must be considered. The red lipsticks are the most common more famous lip plumpers available on the market. Choose a color that complements your skin color, rather than the one that makes you duller.

5. Hydrate
Lack of water in the body could lead to the drying of the lips. Drink seven glasses of water daily to keep your skin hydrated. This prevents your lips from drying and cracking. To complement the function of water, apply a moisturizer whenever you feel the signs of drying.

6. Use natural treatment before bathing
Apply a thick coat of honey before your bath and avoid wiping it off when bathing. Steam to allow penetration of the healing agents in the honey. Clean the honey residue on the surface of the skin and apply you favorite moisturizer.  This treatment will enable you to have naturally smooth lips that you always wish to have.

7. Consider organic oils for plumping
The natural oils are known for their effectiveness in enhancing the beauty of an individual in different ways. It plays a significant role enhancing the beauty of the skin as well as that of the skin. Apply coconut oil on your lips regularly to keep it moisturized.

Conclusion
The beautiful lips are those that are well plumped and are more visible.  There are some over counter products that you use to plump your lips. How you plump them determines their physical appearance.  The secret of having the most beautiful lips is exfoliating and ensuring that they are moisturized. Choosing the color of your lip plumper also matters in the appearance of your lips. The above methods of plumbing your lips are most of what you need to rise to the standard of Angelina Jolie’s lips. Commitment is most of what is required.

Oh holidays, the sweet blissful time when everyone is sinful. It is the season when we indulge in food and drinks and often neglect to care for our skin, hair and the amount of sleep we are having. What we eat and how we are sleeping is reflected the most on our skin and sometimes hair too.
Often we do not even notice the consequences until the season passes. What then? You can deal with these issues, recover and shine like a Christmas tree for months after the holidays. All you need is a couple of days of proper care to regain your beauty.
Here are some steps you can take to achieve that.
 Detox from the Inside!
Your hair, skin and organism have been exposed to harmful influences, both from the outside and inside. That is why you have to get rid of those toxins endangering your health and appearance by detoxification.
Boost Your Beauty: How to Shine After the Holidays| Guest Post by Sophia Smith| cherryontopblog.com


 First, you need to cleanse from the inside. Do that by banishing any unhealthy foods and stock your home with healthy ingredients. Start every day with some form of physical activity and by eating a healthy breakfast (cereals, fruits, yogurt, etc.). At nighttime you should consume lighter food. At lunch and dinner, eat lean protein, such as poultry and seafood.
Drink a lot of water and green or ginger tea. Start your day with one glass of water with lemon juice and a spoon of honey. Eat at least one fresh salad a day. Include some of the “detox wizards” (beets, cabbage, hazelnuts, avocado, almonds, etc.) in your diet.
Take Care of Your Skin
If you have had enough eggnog for the season, you should consider something less harmful for your skin. Opt for other wintery foods that are good for your health, such as sweet potatoes, cocoa and turkey.

Once you have made adequate changes within, you should start battling the damage from the outside. Avoid heavy makeup to give your skin time to rest. Choose organic products with fewer synthetic ingredients. Improve circulation and stimulate toxin release by your lymphatic system using dry-brushing.
 Avoid harsh soaps and opt for pH neutral and chemical-free cleansing products. Use face masks which contain avocado and vitamin E. Choose a quality moisturizer with an SPF and apply it every day.
Recover Your Hair and Nails
Your hair is a sign of your overall health. Adequate nutrients in your diet are helping your hair and nails look beautiful and shiny. Sufficient amounts of vitamin B and calcium are exactly what you need to kickstart your hair recovery. You can get those nutrients by consuming dairy products and leafy greens, but you can also include calciumsupplements, to battle the calcium deficiency.
Boost Your Beauty: How to Shine After the Holidays| Guest Post by Sophia Smith| cherryontopblog.com

After you have taken care of your hair health within, the first thing you should do is to visit your hairdresser and cut the ends. Treat your hair with a scalp massage with essential oils or serum. Some celebrities, such as Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel, use coconut oil to stimulate hair growth. Do not wash your hair more than three times a week, but opt for dry shampoo instead. Avoid hair straighteners and styling gels.
 Also, you can improve your nail health by avoiding nail polish for some time and rubbing in olive oil to boost their recovery. Wear protective gloves when washing the dishes or performing some house chores which require the use of chemicals.
Holidays are a lovely time of the year. Still, they often lead to extremes which are only harming your health and appearance. Do not allow for that to happen. Fight back with a proper diet and a new beauty routine, and you will shine through the whole following year.

Skin is the canvas where the traces of years, experience, mistreatment, neglecting, bad diet and other influences are reflected. That’s why it demands special care and attention. Attaining desired radiant glow is never easy, but it’s not impossible. Skin radiance comes from both inside and outside.
To achieve the best and lasting results, you’ll have to change some habits from the roots, build skincare routine and, if needed, change your nutrition. Don’t worry, there is still time to do that, start with the new practice this guideline will recommend first thing in the morning and don’t give up. You’ll be amazed with the results.

 

 Glowing inside out



As mentioned above, healthy diet makes half of smooth and youthful skin. By eating certain foods, you can achieve perhaps even better results than with skincare products.
Nutrient that are rich with omega-3 fatty acids supply your skin with oils that can reduce inflammation and thus prevent acne, redness and scaly skin. Trout, salmon and herring are the best fishes for the job.
Foods with Vitamin C (kiwi, lemon, orange, tomato) stimulates collagen production and protects skin against wrinkles. The extra treat is dark chocolate which is helping your skin stay soft and hydrated. Speaking of hydration, it is crucial that you drink at least 2 liters of water (non-carbonated) per day, and sometimes even more.

Skincare routine

 
Developing healthy skincare routine is one of the most important steps to take to achieve wanted results. This means you need to wash your face regularly, especially before going to bed. Use makeup remover, gentle soap and only then rinse with water. Remove excess oil with toner and then apply moisturizer.
Make it a habit to exfoliate once a week in order to remove excess skin cells. You can make your own exfoliator or buy trusted product in a store. To keep your skin youthful, protect it from the sun, by applying sunscreen every time you are going outside.

 Finishing touches

 
If you are following these steps you already have glowing skin which needs just a bit more shine. For that, you can use woman’s most trusted tool – makeup.
Start the beautifying process with a primer to create a hydrated and smooth surface. Next, even out the tan with foundation (choose it based on your tan and skin type). If needed, cover spots (acne, redness) with concealer. Lock it all in with powder and accentuate cheekbones with blush or bronzer. Add an extra touch with nude or peach shade lip gloss. The results will be astonishing!
Soft pencil or eyeliner can be very effective solution if you want to highlight your eyes. You can apply the standard one or opt foreyeliner tattoo. However, for evening plans, you’ll need to try a little harder to make your skin glow and cheekbones pop, perhaps do some highlighting and contouring, and you are just few strokes of a makeup brush away from the Hollywood diva look.
There is no reason to have dull and dry skin if you can make it radiant. Where filet of salmon can’t help and exfoliating is just scratching the surface, some primer, foundation and blush will do the trick.

I am not blessed with good hair. Congratulations to those who are. Every time I leave my hair open and step outside, it starts to behave in a weird way. I generally travel by public transport(local trains, most of the time) and love the window-seats. No matter how well you’ve applied your hair-spray you can’t avoid hitting by a continuous wave of wild wind and finally turning into a mass of hey or a scarecrow. Whenever I decide to let my hair open I end up changing my mind because it is either too hot outside or I start to feel uncomfortable (I am a bun and ponytail person, guys!). 

Packing my bag for a day, I always forget to pack hair-ties or clips which leads to an absolute mayhem and I come home with a knotty and messy hair. I have recently come across an article on Rewardme, which I felt is wrote for me and lots of others who face the same problem. This article shows five products that can be proved essential if you have a bad hair day. These five things are-



1. Bobby Pins- Bobby pins need no introduction. We all know how victorious is the moment when we find a bobby pin in our purse to grab a rebellious lock of hair. You hair is all over the place or your bun becoming way too messy, don’t worry you have got a saviour, a bobby pin! The article also teaches you the right way to put a bobby pin.

2. Dry Shampoo: Dry shampoos come in handy if you have a oily scalp like mine. My hair starts to get oily from the second day. As soon as it seems oily it seems thin and unhealthy. All you have to do is to keep a travel-sized dry shampoo in you purse, spray it whenever you need it and it will make your hair look fresher and healthier instantly.

3. Hairspray: Just as I mentioned earlier, hairsprays (for me, a strong hold is must) are must-have if you have terribly unruly hair like mine.

4. Mini-toothbrush: Now, I was completely unaware of this thing. Thanks you Rewardme for this tip! A tooth-brush has manifold usages. You can spray some hairspray onto the brush and use it to tame your baby hairs along the hairline or the frisky flyaways.

5. Clear Ponytail Holders: This one is my favourite among all as I love to do it myself every time I feel uncomfortable with the open hair. It is the easiest way to manage your unruly hair yet look fashionably attractive. Just tie up your hair in a ponytail using clear ponytail holders.

That’s all for this article. I found it really helpful because most of us have to (almost) fight to make our hair look perfect for the day. Somedays your hair behaves well and somedays it is unruly as hell. I hope you guys found the article helpful too. Feel free to share your opinions in the comments. 



“I am participating in the ‘Ready For Rewards’ activity for Rewardme in association with BlogAdda.”

Hey all, hope you’re doing good. I am slowly recovering from my winter-laziness as spring is round the corner. You must know how much I love spring! Today I am going to be sharing a haul post with you all. Before you get shocked by the expenditure, let me tell you that these aren’t bought at the same time. These are the products I have been accumulating from last November. I was waiting for my U.S. order to reach me, hence the delay. Now, let’s see what I actually have to show you-

Disclaimer! That tiny little yellow clasp clip is not included in the haul. I just forgot to remove it from there before clicking the pictures. So, don’t get confused 😛

1. L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hair Spray: I was in a hunt for this hair spray ever since I saw Dulce Candy using it and praising it in one of her tutorials. I couldn’t help grabbing it myself when I saw it on sale on Flipkart. I got it for 850 bucks and I think it was a pretty good deal considering its availability. I have already started using it but I would like to take some more time to finally talk about it.
2. L’Oreal Paris Studio Line Hot & Smooth Hot Straight Spray: And that was literally mouthful! It’s basically a heat protecting spray and I got this because I had to get a heat protecting spray straight away. End of the Story!

Random Haul


1. Tresemme Hair Spa Rejuvenation Shampoo: I went to the Big Bazar the other week to get some breakfast items and I just managed to get a shampoo along with them. It had to be Tresemme because I am a fan of this brand. Sadly I was in a hurry and thus forgot to pick up the conditioner with it.
2. Matrix Opticare Split-end Serum: I love Matrix serums for some reasons. I used their Biolage serum and loved it. This time I opted for this one. I got it from a local store.
3. Lotus Herbals Ecostay Nourishing Foundation:  I am not a foundation person. I mostly go out with bare face just some compact on or occasionally use a BB cream. Being a lazy person the fear of blending foundations has always stopped me from using them (except Parties and Weddings). This time I had to get one because I had to attend one of my friend’s wedding and I ran out of my foundation. So, that was the only opportunity for me to try my hands on a new foundation. I wanted to get the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation but my shade was out of stock at the store. Then the SA suggested me to try the Lotus Herbals Ecostay one. I was really impressed to see that it blended into my skin effortlessly and gave a very natural finish. I spent almost no time in buying it. Not every purchase brings me the ultimate happiness, but it did.

4. The Body Shop Moringa Body Butter: Recently The Body Shop was offering 50% discount on the body butters. No one could have ignored the offer! Shayoni (Sweet And Bitter Blog) helped me choosing a body butter and I am happy to purchase it as it’s not so thick for my normal skin (I have an oily/combination facial skin and a normal body skin, if you know what I mean!). I am loving this since I started using it. A review will be up very soon.


U.S. Haul

The two persons who are behind this segment are Titi (Tsering Yangzom) of Titi’s Corner and Sanandita di (Sanandita Chakraverty). I was desperately looking for someone who could procure me some products from the U.S. when Sushmita, a very good friend told me about Titi and Sanandita di. Titi helped me in getting the BH Day & Night Palette and Sanandita di helped me in getting the rest of what you can see here. A special thanks to her husband, Abhijit da.

1. BH Day & Night Palette: I wanted to buy either the BH Cosmetics Party Girl After Hours palette or this one but decided to get this finally. It has 60 shades appropriate for both day and night time. It includes both mattes and shimmery shades. I will review and swatch them for you soon.

2. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette: I had received a $15 gift card from Sephora which made it possible for me. Honestly, I won’t have spent that much money on a palette otherwise. Chocolate Bar palette by Too Faced is very popular amongst all the beauty bloggers and vloggers that’s why I was fascinated to buy it. Receiving it, I know why it is so famous. This is my first impulsive purchase and my first frenzied expenditure.
3. NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk: I bought this to prep my eyelids beforehand as light shades of eye-shadows do not pop up on my eyelids as I have heavily pigmented eyelids.

4. NYX Butter Lipstick in Razzle: This is a gorgeous fuchsia shade and you guys should know how much I love fuchsia! These lipsticks are super affordable and superbly pigmented.

5. Real Techniques Miracle Sponge: I call it a ‘Poor people’s Beauty Blender’. Honestly I didn’t have enough money to purchase a Beauty Blender so I opted for this. Many bloggers have raved about it and I wanted to try its efficiency myself. 
Samples!!

As I bought the Too Faced palette from Sephora, I was chosen to receive three samples. I decided to opt for the perfumes because I didn’t find any logic in buying skincare samples that could only be used once or twice. Perfumes at least could be used several times. I’ve got the samples of Flora by Gucci, Escada Joyful and Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme. I was also gifted another sample for applying a special coupon and it’s the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick. It has four gorgeous lipstick samples. I am dying to try them out.

That’s all folks! Please let me if you liked this post or not and which of the products you liked the most. Hope to see you soon again with a new post. In the mean time, be sure to check out my Facebook Giveaway. It’s ending on 14th February. Till then stay safe and keep smiling!
