April Beauty Favourites!

Hi ya’ll! it is the end of April. It was a crazy month for me. Today I will be writing a short review on some of the beauty products I have used this month, which like the Mumbai weather, is on my hot favourite list! Some products have been extensively used and some are just brand new! So get ready for some lust worthy products that can make your heart flutter!

A quick-fix solution to amp up your look, this lipstick from MAC is an intense pop red colour. .It is highly pigmented with the ordinary MAC fragrance that doesn’t bother me at all. The product has a long-lasting power and re-touches can be given every 6-7 hours depending on your lifestyle. The drying and matte formula can bleed over time but on the bright side, it suits any skin tone which is a great bonus!
Product Price: Rs.1450

I have been using this since last Christmas and this is definitely my favourite of the lot. It is a dark turquoise colour almost leaning towards teal, with a rich matte and creamy texture. Despite it being creamy, it doesn’t fade away over time. In fact, I can only get it off with an eye make-up remover. You can ditch the boring black for your smokey eye with this lovely colour.
Product Price: Rs.600

This is one of my recent purchase and I’m definitely going to repurchase it. This eyeliner comes in a clean and effortless packaging. It is super light and a must-have for the winged-eye lovers. It has a soft fine tip for precise application. It has a glossy finish to it, which is always my preference. I loathe mattifying eyeliners and this one works amazingly well. It has a waterproof formula with a long-lasting power.
Product Price: Rs.425

I have a hyper sensitive skin that breaks out for the tiniest reason possible. I have avoided all foams and cleansers in the past and stuck to my medicated gel cleanser- Episoft. But as I passed through the ZA counter, I dared to glance through the products. I purchased the 50g pack for a trial, and this has been my holy grail for the past month! The soft cream cleanser has cleansing granules that doesn’t irritate the skin. Just a pea –sized amount leaves my skin soft, refreshed and void of any breakouts! I have already ordered ZA’s moisturiser from the same range which I tested prior purchase. A double thumbs up for ZA!
Product Price: Rs. 200 for 50g

Every now and then, I make tiny splurges on nail polishes, and these two are my favourites. I purchased them recently and have been wearing them on rotations. The blackcurrant pop is a pastel violet shade that is perfect for the summer. I apply two coats for a full coverage. The second bottle is firewood brown from Maybelline’s Bright Sparks range. It is a deep brown metal colour. Looks stunningly unique, and has a lasting power of about a week.
Product Price: Rs. 85 per bottle

What are some of your favourite beauty products for the summer? I would love to know and explore! ;-)

7 Things I Love On Men

Hello! It’s been a long haul since my last blog post. I wouldn’t waste any time in explaining what actually took me so long. Instead, I would get on with my regular blogging schedule which I so love and missed.

I have always wanted to do this topic, since it was so intriguing as to what exactly attracts me to a man the most- the charm, the clothes, the shoes? So, I have jotted down 7 things I love on men, which I’m sure most of us women will agree to. 

·       Whiff Of A Perfume
This is numero uno on my list simply because, it is the first thing I catch on a guy. A musky, woody lingering fragrance is just a turn on for most women. So, guilty as charged!

o   Well-Fitted Suit
My oh my! We all remember drooling over a favourite TV show’s handsome hunk with glossy shades and a classy suit. Although, not preferred to be groomed 24x7 like our man Mr. Stinson, it is definitely advantageous for several occasions.

·       Watch Out!
This is the only arm-candy on my man I can tolerate, of course, besides me. Admittedly, I am a sucker for watches and they always seem to catch my eyes, especially a chronograph. A sporty leather for casuals and the classic round-dialled chronograph for formal meets, will NEVER go out of style.

o   Leather Jacket
If a guy can carry leather jacket like his second skin, “Hats Off!” It is a one true gift to do so. A leather jacket with ripped/chain detailing look ideal, when teamed with casuals for an upbeat look. If your guy finishes this look with rocker boots and asks you out for a long drive, hang on to him!

·       Fedora
Is it just me or Bruno Mars is the first person that pops up in your mind with the mention of fedora. Just like the Hawaiian singer can pull of a checked shirt, denims and fedora, I would so love to see this more often on a regular guy. It has a easy-breezy vibe to it and can amp up the coolness-factor on a fun night!

o   Wacky Ties
This is a must-have in every guy’s closet. Wacky ties are so cool. And I love the crazy and creative ones that just make for a statement piece. It unleashes the inner madness that I believe exists in every man. And with this, I have suggested constructive gifting item for your friend, boyfriend, husband, brother, cool uncle and dad (maybe?)

·       Facial Hair
As funny as it sounds, most men do believe, Beard= Proven Manhood. I wouldn’t care to agree or disagree, but I just love it. My favourite one is a well-maintained stubble. I find it extremely appealing. Just the sight of it, is pleasant to look at.

So, I hope you guys enjoyed reading this! Let me know your thoughts/ suggestions on what you would like on your guy? I would love reading the same!
