Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick,

Hey Friends,
Hope you all had a fab weekend :) after repeat warning from my conscience for over a fortnight to steer away from cosmetic counters and lippies were a strict no no, my control finally gave in when I saw this beauty at Central. This lovely is called Burnt Caramel, shade no. 745. It is one of the recent launches by Max Factor.

  • Packaging is very classy with a gold coloured bullet.
  • It claims to nourish, moisturize and make 'em smoother in just 7 days.

  • The bottom of this bullet is transparent so you can easily locate the colour
  • It has very creamy texture and gives a matt finish
  • After applying the lips feel very smooth n supple

    • Available in 17 shades and 8 liners is a visual treat
    • The only con that I see is the staying power, it stays for 1-2hrs and requires touch up after you eat or drink.
    • Priced at INR 670/-
    • Is a good buy but don't expect a lot from this product, it's not a must have.
    • Was it after seeing the model in da brochure or the after effect of this lippie I don't have a clue but was inspired to make make all sorts of faces and this is how it looks on me....heyyyyy fellas stop smiling ok :)

    Oh n the lovely sales lady gave me this free along wid this lippie, a lip gloss. After seeing this I was like, "oh nother useless gloss, a very natural colour, no pigmentation, what gud is dat ;(" but after applying it.....boy it's awesome, not 'et all sticky and glides beautifully on the lips.

    A nice slanted applicator wand. I personally loved it.

    This is how the lippie looks after being topped with gloss, nice na?? :)

    Ohhhh speaking bout smiling, I just can't stop coz of this....

    It's my all time fav Galaxy Chocolate in caramel flavour. This sinful delight is a milk chocolate, centre with oozing caramel....yummmmmm. It's very sweet but trust me once you take a bite it's sheer HEAVEN!!

    Priced at INR 20/- you just can't miss it. I always share all my edible stuff but this is one woweeeeeeeeee delight that I like to share with me, myself ONLY! :P so don't sit and watch, go get ur own bar....as for me....ummmm I just gotta go n indulge ;)

    Lotsa Love Always

    L'OREAL Youth Code Serum

    Hiya Fellas,
    So how was the much awaited Sunday :) mine turned out to be really gr8....hmmm so a quickie bout the much talked bout Youth Code range by L'OREAL. This range is especially formulated for guys n gals in the age category between 25-35 yrs and hence the name. This range is designed for fighting skin related problems that arise due to pollution, stress, acne etc that leave your skin dry, patchy, with open pores etc.

    Products in this range.......
    • Serum
    • Day Cream
    • Night Cream
    • Eye Cream
    • Anti-wrinkle concentrate ( Only for severely damaged skin )
    Today I'll be reviewing Youth Code Serum.

    • Packaging is nice and trendy, comes in a glass bottle with a dropper so easy to use n get required quantity, non messy.
    • Can be used for eyes too. Did not cause any allergies to my sensitive skin and eyes.

    • I've been using it for a fortnight and have seen positively visible difference in uneven skin-tone & pigmentation.
    • I use it in the night after cleansing and when I wake up I do experience a tightening feel on my skin, especially around the eyes.
    • Priced at INR 1275/- approx.
    • Quantity 30ml
    • The serum is not thick like olay, is a bit runny and gets quickly absorbed in the skin.
    • Has very mild fragrance but not a floral one, more like that of a mild deo.
    • It claims to have lasting effects even after you discontinue usage, I havent seen it live upto this claim so far.

    Will I recommend it, well yes to be used occasionally, I'd rather suggest you to use more natural remedies for skin tightening and brightening.
    Hope this review was helpful, chalo then will be off to get some sleep as have to kick start my day pretty early tomorrow but before I go need to tell you bout Chetan Bhagats new book Revolution 2020. It is an ok book, seems like a normal story till it takes a very filmi twist at the end.The story revolves around 3 friends, Gopal, Raghav and Aarthi and how an average human-being faces problem trying to get noticed and fit into this system called society & the dilemma to flow with the tide or fight against it.... I do find his books of interest but till date his "Two States" remains my favorite.

    Priced at INR 140/-

    Chalo then me off to bed, tc n gudnite!

    Lotsa Love

    Bourjois Paris Volume Fast and Perfect Rotating Maskara

    Hiiiyaaaaaaaaaaaa Fellas! J

    Am soooooo happy to finally get time for what I love doing and that’s chatter away to my hearts content on my blog :D So b4 I bug you wid my bak bak, how have u all been doing,?? hope you all had a lovely week and will have and even better weekend ( we all do anyways :D he he! )

    Hmmmm so lotsa stuff to talk bout but today will give my quick review on…

    Bourjois Paris Volume Fast and Perfect Rotating Maskara Phewwwww, kafi lamba naam hai :P

    Ok so coming to my review......

    • Nice & sturdy packaging in classic black with red and silver lettering.

    • It looks like a thick white board marker.

    • Now comes the USP of this product, it is equipped with a twin rotating action, clockwise & anticlockwise, which helps to evenly spread out mascara on the upper and lower lashes and also makes it easier to give 'em a natural looking curl without the lash curler.

    • You can apply lotsa mascara and still get and even and finished look minus the clumps due to the rotating action the helps get rid of the excess.
    • Separates lashes yet adds volume.
    • Dries off quickly.

    • Priced at INR 825/- is well worth the outlay.
    • Did not cause me any discomfort since I have very sensitive eyes.

    • Is easy to remove with a good eye makeup remover.
    • Batteries are suppose to last till the mascara lasts but at this moment have no way of finding that out since this will last me for quite a while.
    Yes! Personally will recommend you to buy it and will be doing the same once this baby dries out/ finishes.

    • The only con is you will need a bit of practice to apply this with ease due to the rotating action and even if you can't you still can apply it like a regular mascara.

    Yawwwwwwwwnnnnn!!!! Okkkkk folks thatz my cue to go and crash on my bed that look really really inviting, so am off, you guys n gals take care, sleep tight and I'll see you tomorrow, For Sure ;)


    Lotsa Love

    Ponds Active Moisture 24Hr Moisturizer

    Hiya Fellas,
    Hope you all had a fab weekend. Me too njoying as always. A quickie bout Ponds Active Moisture 24Hr Moisturizer .

    • Comes with active moisture lock technology.
    • It claims to hydrate skin and thereby make it radiate with health and glowing vitality.
    • Very likable and mildly perfumed.
    • It specially to be used in winter when skin feels dry.
    • Priced at INR 120/-
    And now my verdict, it's just like any other regular cream. DOSE NOT give 24hr moisture, in next15mins my skin feels dry again. Absorbs quickly in the skin but dose not make it feel hydrated. I have a oily and sensitive skin so even a little moisture should do but this dose not make my skin feel hydrated. I will not recommend it, especially to those who have dry skin.

    No a bad product but then it dose not live upto it's claim either.Take Care, adios!!

    Lotsa Love
    Priyanka :)

    Dove Face Washes

    Hey All,
    Hope you all are having a fab weekend. Today will be reviewing two lovely face washes by Dove.

    Go Fresh

    • It contains orange oil & skin care essence ( wonder what that means :P )....oh gotcha, skin care essence in Dove brands terminology means the process that balances skins moisture and oiliness.
    • It is specially formulated for oily skin.
    • Has a very mild orangey fragrance
    • Dose not dry out skin after wash and leaves me feeling fresh.

    Beauty Moisture

    • Contains 1/4 moisture milk and thus leaves you feeling hydrated after wash.
    • Specially formulated for Normal to Dry skin but with onset of winters it suits my oily skin too.
    • A very mild soapy fragrance, like Dove soap.

    DOVE: Go Fresh & Beauty Moisture Face Washes

    • I personally loved the packaging, fresh colours and come in squeeze tubes that have a very secure lid so easy to carry around in your purse.
    • Quantity: 100g
    • Price INR 125/-
    • Definitely not extraordinary products but you wont regret buying 'em either, atleast I don't.
    Chalo then me off to bed...yawwwwwwwwwwnnnnn phewww really sleepy, you fellas take care and have a Gr8 sunday :) Gudnite.

    Lotsa Love
