NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base Review

Hi Friends!!

Before starting my affair with lipsticks I was very steady with eye looks/eye makeup/eyeshadow..anything related to eyes.I love doing eye looks even today but the thing is I don't get enough time.

Anyways to cut the long story short I want to talk about my eye make up holy grail:NARS Smudge Proof eyeshadow base. If you are looking for a eye primer which lets your eyemakeup last forever then my dear friends your search has come to an end!

Things I like about it:

*Everything (ok i'll explain!)
*it is easy to blend on eyelids (no extra pressure/stretching)
*it is moisturizing but not greasy (I have oily eyelids)
*And your eyemakeup will stay in place like forever! (no exaggeration)
I have tested it for straight 12 hours quite a few times
*No fading
*No creasing (may be a little if you have very oily lids)
*No smudging

Things I don't like about it:

*packaging: If only I could see how much product is left, it would have been perfect!

Here are the pics!enjoy!

*freshly applied eye makeup

YSL Creme De Blush 02 Powdery Rose Swatch

Hi Friends!!

I have been in look out of a good cream blush as powder blushes make my otherwise dry skin more dry and leave tiny dry patches(I pay attention to my skin care and follow the regime religiously).During winters the condition worsens even with all the hydration pack and everything.I love blushes so I tried using cream blush and it worked!!No tiny dry patches and gives that 'natural flush from under skin' look.

I own few cream blushes but I was still looking for something which is creamy but not sticky/greasy ,has good pigmentation,decent stay power and that natural flush look...And I found all of these in YSL Creme de blush 02 Powdery Rose !

Things I Like About it:

*creamy texture but not sticky/greasy
*melts in your finger thus smooth application
*good pigmentation
*gives 'natural flush from under the skin' look
*decent stay power of 4-5 hours
*shows up perfectly & natural way on my NC 40-42 skin tone
*Some people don't like YSL packaging but I love it..I love to own
gold in any form:P

Things I don't Like About it:


Here are the pics!enjoy!

How to Wear Denim On Denim Outfit: OOTD

Hi Friends!!

Today's post is an outfit post.Labor day weekend is over and is followed by rule of 'no white'...but believe me until it snows I am so going to unfollow that rule!!
(after snow there is enough white around!)

Well somewhere in mid of summer I bought this white jeans from marshalls and I love it. Believe it or not I didn't own a white jeans before this (ashamed!).I wore this outfit for a day outing during labor day weekend.

How I Styled My Outfit

This outfit is styled around the thought of a stylish yet comfy outfit which should incorporate few summer trends like:

*White jeans + Denim Shirt = Denim on Denim Trend(& white jeans trend)

*Knotted shirt trend

*Color block (shoes) Trend

And I completed the look with:

*side swept ponytail: adds that extra chic feel to entire look (pay attention to hair it takes the complete look to another level)

*Red Chunky beaded bracelet: Since it is denim on denim outfit with knotted shirt,the red bracelet adds that girly/feminine touch to the otherwise tomboyish look

*Oversize white watch

*Tan satchel bag

Here are the pics!enjoy!

p.s: Please excuse the picture quality *sorry*

Lipstick Love:Marcelle Rouge Expression Lipstick Paris Rose Swatch

Hi Friends!!

Since I have gone out of my comfort zone and trying new lipstick shades,I wanted to own a candy pink shade lipstick(extremely out of my comfort zone!)Before my canada trip I was doing a little research what cosmetic brands I should check out.My fellow beauty bloggers on twitter helped me out with it and Marcelle Rouge Expression lipstick was one thing everyone recommended.

And so after swatching all the shades from that range I picked paris rose 804.It shows up as candy pink shade on me,something I don't usually wear but I love this one!!

Things I like about it:

*The shade:candy pink(on me)otherwise it is pinkish coral shade!!
*Good coverage in couple of swipes for my pigmented lips
*A little bright shade but looks good on my NC 40-42 Indian skin tone
*Three hours stay power (with coffee/water sips)

Things I don't like about it:

*Only available in canada(you can always shop online!)

Here are the pics!enjoy!!
