Hello lovelies, hope you all had a great Christmas and you must be busy getting prepared for the New Year’s Eve! I can’t believe that New Year is around the corner. Feeling really excited! I have a hell lot of things listed for shopping and now wondering how would I manage to accomplish it. Anyways guys, I have just got my first ever Fab Bag in my hands today.

In case you are wondering, this is just the old wine in a new bottle. Vellvette Bag has now just changed their name to Fab Bag. But I personally liked their previous name. Anyways, let’s see how Fab is the bag-

The bag is just the typical black bag primped with some colourful stars on it which I found to be really gorgeous and very significant keeping the ongoing festivities in mind. They have done a good job on the bag, I must say. Here is a look of the bag-

This is the overview of what I got inside the bag-

Products that I got in this month’s Fab Bag-

1. MUA Out There Plumping Lip Gloss- Shocking Pink
2. Kama Ayurveda Lavender Patchouli Hair Conditioner
3. LA Splash Nail Splash- Blowfish Purple
4. Bonus: Anna Andre Nail Enamel Remover

What I love about this gloss is the shade. I was looking for a barbie pink lipstick for a few weeks and I got this in my December Fab Bag. Though MUA is nowhere a ‘deluxe’ brand but still I love it as I have never used any lip product from MUA. Also, it’s going to be my first pink lip-gloss. I have no idea why I didn’t got any description card with this product.

This will be my first product from this brand. I have seen some bloggers got this in their November Vellvette Bag. I loved the packaging and the product also seems to be good. I haven’t used it yet but I will in a few days.

This will be my third pink/fuchsia nail paint that I got this year. I liked the colour. The top part of it got some dents which I didn’t like at all. I am yet to use it.

I don’t get the point of sending a nail paint remover in a beauty subscription bag, that too from a brand like Anna Andre. It may have been Sally Hansen. Nevertheless, this remover says it’s Acetone free and enriched with Vitamin E. That sounds good. Let’s see how good does it work.

I have been lucky since I have subscribed for the Vellvette/Fab Bag this year. Where I heard a lot of bloggers sharing their disappointments, I found my bag full of pretty good products. Then comes the question how Anna Andre and MUA are ‘deluxe’ brands. But as the nail paint remover came as a bonus, I don’t mind either it is from a deluxe brand or else. Talking about organizing, I must consider it as a big mistake how the Team Fab Bag have forgotten to include a description card with the lip gloss they sent.

You can subscribe for your Fab Bag here.

Overall, I liked my this month’s Fab Bag and what came inside it. I am pretty much satisfied with what I got. The nail paint and the lip gloss appears to be very good. I haven’t used the conditioner and the nail paint remover yet but I hope they work good for me.

That was it guys. I will come up very soon with another new post. Till then, be safe, be happy. Good Night 😀

Hello girls, finally I am back in action (read blogging). If you’re in my Facbook friend list then you might know what I was going through these days. My dog was ill for two weeks and he left us last Saturday. I was very heart-broken. My dog was my only best friend for last 13 years and you can feel how lonely am I feeling now. Nevertheless, let’s jump into the post or else I’ll start crying again.
As you all know I am very new in this world of Beauty Blogging. I just have found my interest in makeup and beauty. I am following a lot of beauty bloggers across the country and have seen them talking about one monthly beauty subscription box and that is the very famous Vellvette Box (now a bag). I wanted to try it as soon as possible because I have seen numerous tempting products coming in this bag. I subscribed for the October’13 Vellvette Bag.  I was not able to share with you my first Vellvette but I will share a picture of what I got in my first Vellvette Bag at the end of the post.
For those who are wandering about what this Vellvette Bag is, it’s an Indian monthly beauty subscription box which claims to ship you luxury beauty, makeup, skincare, bath and body and perfume samples of recognized brands from all over the world. At the time of registration they ask you to fill in a questionnaire about your preferences. But sadly they forget it during shipping. The one month subscription is worth Rs 499. Visit www.vellvette.com to know more about them.

Let’s get into the post now. This is my second Bag from Vellvette and I am really impressed with the products I got in this bag. The pink bag looks super cute with the black polka dots all over it. I think I am going to use it as a makeup pouch while travelling. This bag contains all the essentials for the wedding season. I got an assortment of makeup, bath and skincare products and one bonus item too. Check out what I got-

The Lipstick I got in the box is quite impressive. It has a buttery texture to it and gives a sheer finish. I love the glossiness it gives to my lips. This is a little heavy on my lips, I feel like I’m wearing butter on my lips. It tends to melt a lot so I have to keep it in the fridge all the time. I don’t think I can carry it with me while travelling.

I gave this product to my mom and she is using it for 2 days. I think it’s a good product as she didn’t complain about it till now. The term ‘Pore Shrinking’ made me very interested in the results. I will be using it on my skin and write a review for you guys soon.

I am using this shower gel for 2 days and I like it so far. Sometimes I get very disturbed with the strong coconut-y fragrance. I hate, hate, hate the smell. But, unlike other shower gels that I have used earlier, this product doesn’t leave me with a weird soapy feeling even after washing myself.
November Vellvette Bag
I am yet to try this one. However, I don’t like the smell. It smells like the ayurvedic chapped lips and skin healers my grandma used to use. Also, the product is very thick in consistency.

This is a glimpse of what I got in my October Vellvette Bag-

My Note:

Being a new subscriber, honestly I didn’t know what to expect from them. But I was amazed to see the products came in my November Vellvette Bag. It’s pretty satisfactory. Also, they sent me a bonus product as a prize for the renewal of the subscription. So, I am quite happy with them till now. So, this was my experience with November Vellvette Bag. What is yours?

Getting ready for school/college can be a mess if you don’t have a step-by-step plan to do your makeup and hair. I usually never liked the idea of putting a lot of makeup on my face when I was in school. But I am listing here 5 simple and essential step of makeup that you can easily wear for school/college.
  • Shape and Fill in Your Brows: Shaping your brows and filling them in is very important because your eyebrows are responsible for the prompt upturn of your beauty. Properly shaped and filled eyebrows can make you look more defined.

  • Apply Tinted Moisturizer: Tinted moisturizers or BB creams help you get an even skin as well as retouch and correct the skin. Replacing your foundations with BB creams is a smart idea, because foundations are too heavy for the skin and mostly when you have to spend long hours. BB creams or tinted moisturizers are very lightweight and doesn’t give you that cakey and artificial look which you don’t want to have.

  •  Lip gloss: Lip glosses are more wearable than lipsticks when you are doing makeup for school/college because they give you a subtle look. Or instead you can use a tinted lip balm to stain your lips.
  • Apply a Natural Blush: This step is self-explanatory. Don’t be playful with colors when you’re getting ready for school/college. Using a natural blush shade you can get the most natural look.
  • Apply Eyeliner and Mascara: After curling your lashes, tight-line your eyes using a kohl pencil and line the upper and lower lash line as well. Use a pencil liner to achieve a natural look. Don’t forget to apply coats of mascara on your lashes. You can use transparent mascara.

Now if you dine all the steps, you are good to go. You don’t need anything more. Remember one thing, Natural is everything. Now wear your precious smile and see the world embracing you.
Well, with this post, the Back to School series ends. I don’t know if I have disappointed you guys or not. If yes, then please forgive me. I am very new to this world of beauty blogging and improving myself bit by bit. I love all of you who showed interest in my posts and liked them. I want to grow my blog so please come up with your suggestions. They mean a lot to me. Any suggestion, query or comment is welcome. Feel free to share this post. I will be up in a while with another review. Till then, keep smiling and stay healthy.

Hello, my wonderful readers. This is me again. I haven’t posted anything since my long MIA. Please excuse me for that. I promise to be regular on the blog henceforth. *Pinky Promise*

Now let’s get into the post. This is my first haul post so far. I have seen a lot of beauty and fashion bloggers doing haul posts and I like reading them very much. So, I always wanted to write a haul post for you. This post contains my recent buys in the month July. Let’s have a look.

Now let me enlist the products here, one by one.

1. Dove Go Fresh Nourishment Body Lotion: I was looking for a moisturizer that can cope up with this tremendous heat and humidity in India right now. My hands easily gets dried, lacks moisture right after bathing. So, I badly need a moisturizing lotion to keep my hand moisturized. And, this body lotion is best when it comes to summer-time moisturizing. (Review Coming Up)
2. Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage Body Wash: Now, this is my most favourite body washes so far. It has a soothing smell, keeps my skin supple, one or two dollop is enough for washing my body, lathers very generously and budget friendly. I love this product so much. This is actually my second buy. Two thumbs up for this. (Review Coming Up)

3. Polchem Rose Water Skin Toner: First of all, sorry for the blurry picture, it’s due to wrong camera settings. Now, this toner is not so much of my choice. It instantly produces a lot of rashes in my skin. I won’t recommend this for you.

4. Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream: I had been reading so much about this product for a long time, so, finally decided to give it a try. An guess what, it’s really far better than my imagination. I was using the Garnier BB Cream for quite a time. I have a combination skin and it used to accentuate my oily areas and  left me with a greasy feeling day long. Pond’s is perfect for those who have oily or combination skin. (Review Coming Up)
5. Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner: Good pigmentation, literally waterproof but I think it’s bit highly priced. (Review Coming Up)

6. Revlon Colorstay Makeup: I love this foundation. Very light, stays for a long long time, non-oily, gives a dewy finish to your makeup. (Review Coming Up)

So, that’s it. How do you like it girls? Please do let me know in the comment section. If you are having problems posting comments, as the Google+ comments only allows users those have a Google+ account, then please message me on Facebook.
Thanks for reading. See you next time. Take Care 🙂
