I rushed to the Clinique store after work and picked these up.
- Clinique even better concealer. MRP Rs 1650. I have a Clarins under eye corrector which is not the correct shade. I picked up this one in orange color. Hope it works on my under eyes.
- Clinique even better compact: MRP Rs 2100. This is a cream based compact which turns into a powder after application. It has heavy coverage which makes it perfect for touch ups. I prefer medium to heavy coverage since my skin has a lot of problems.

Reviews will be up soon. 


October Vellvette Box

I just received my Vellvette box and am very happy with their delivery timeline this month.

It is a navy blue bag this time which contains the following:
- Full size products of Vantiv lemon shower gel- MRP Rs 214 for 180 ml
- Full size Vantiv moisturising shampoo- MRP Rs 187 for 250 ml
- Florelle wet and dry blush - MRP Rs 750
- Origins make a difference rejuvenating treatment lotion - MRP Rs 2000 for 150 ml

I have mixed feelings about the bag. I like the navy blue bag which will come handy. The shampoo and body lotion are manufactured by some company in Dehradun. Isn't the bag supposed to contain only 'premium' products?
I could not find any reviews for the Florelle blush online.
Thankfully, for Origins I did find reviews but the it is just a sample size. Don't know how long it will last.

I am wondering if the bag is worth the 500 bucks I am paying.

I don't understand how other bloggers can rave and appreciate these products. It has become a fad without actually evaluating anything.

Where have the Clarins, Clinique, Dior products gone? 


This week and last week's nails

Posted by Buls on 10:00 PM in , , , , ,

Nail paints used: Maybelline Colorshow Shocking Seas, Maybelline Express Finish Fuschia Fun

Colorbar Moss Agate. Love this shade.

Max Factor nail paint (hate tiny nail paints) with L'Oreal color riche Le Vernis gold polka dots. Looks like a 80s saree design.


Maybelline Color Show

Posted by Buls on 8:25 PM in , ,
I was very happy to see the Maybelline Color Show nail paints in the stores. Apparently, there are some 40 shades launched but I saw only 15-20 shades in the store.

This shade is called Miss you Blue and is priced at Rs 75 for 6 ml. I love how cheap the nail paints are. Sure, they are only 6 ml but that works out to be better 'coz I rarely repeat nail paints... maybe 2-3 times in a year.

This shade is light blue with shimmer (not glitter). It is a different shade and not everyone may like it. I do not own any color like this.

The nail paint applies opaque in 1 coat itself. I have applied 2 coats below. The paint is for a good consistency- neither too thick nor too runny. 

And here is the best part. It lasts 4-5 days. Below is the pic of my left hand where there is minor chipping on 2 nails. It also dries quite fast. 

I cannot think of even 1 negative in these nail paints. They are superb products at cheap prices. Love them.

This is what my nails have been upto:

Maybelline Colorama ... don't know which shade this is... cannot read it... don't know why I bought it... it looks bad. Discard.

Inglot... like this shade.


L'Oreal new nail stickers

Posted by Buls on 10:43 PM in , ,
I came across the new nail stickers at Shoppers Stop the other day. I was excited. They seemed better than the previous ones. You can read the review here.
The SA applied one on my nail and I liked it. The new designs are funky and more daily wear. I bought the pink and purple one for Rs 299.

The nail sticker is thinner than the older ones and so applies more easily. The best part about this is... you can either apply the pink side or purple side since the excess can be cut off.

I loved them while applying but... then this happened. Just like last time, the top part started peeling off. Initially, it was 'coz I had applied Sally Hansen base coat. I removed them and applied new ones. But, they did not stay for even a day. And this is on my left hand... the state of the nail art on my right hand was worse.

Not happy at all. I still prefer Revlon nail stickers.
