Review: Loreal Caresse Lipstick in 202 Impulsive Fuchsia

           The Caresse Lipsticks are the latest line of lipsticks out by Loreal. It is available in 13 different shades at Boots London. But I'm not a 100% sure which countries these are available in. The name really explains the colour of this lipstick. Many people are comparing these lipsticks to the Revlon Lip Butters (CLICK HERE for the review), so throughout the review I will be comparing this lipstick to the Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop.

Review: BH Cosmetics 88 Colour Palette Standard Shimmer Eyeshadows

     A few swatches from the palette

          The BH Cosmetics 88 Standard Shimmer Eyeshadow palette is THE most versatile palette that I own. It comes with 88 different eyeshadows that range from light pale pinks, golds and beiges to brighter corals, yellows, greens and purples. The palette is super portable and it is very easy to travel around with due to its size and weight. The packaging is simple, stylish and sturdy. By the swatches seen below, the quality of the eyeshadows looks pretty awesome. The shades are decently pigmented and considering that they got about 90% of the eyeshadows to have such amazing pigmentation, I am impressed. Although some of the eyeshadows can be powdery and way too soft and pretty much all the eyeshadows has a good amount of fall out when you apply it.

Review: Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters

           Today's reviewed product is going to be the Revlon Lip Butters. I have been waiting for these to be in my hands for such a long time, and finally, they're here. They STILL haven't released in India, although when I was in Singapore I managed to get my hands on five of them. Anyway, moving on to the review. The Revlon lip butters come in 20 different shades including a shade called Macaroon which I believe is exclusive to UK and Asia (not a 100% sure). These lipsticks have a huge range of shades, which I love. You certainly will be able to find a shade that suits you best in this line.

Review: Revlon 16 Hour Colourstay Quad in 500 Addictive

          Today's featured product is the Revlon 16 Hour Colourstay Quads.  The Quad includes a creamy off-white shadow with the tiniest amount of shimmer (top left), a light brown-grey with, again the tiniest amount of shimmer (top right), a gorgeous mid-tone taupe with a satin to shimmery finish (bottom left) and a dark matte brown (bottom right). The packaging is nice and sturdy and perfect for travel. It also comes with a small sponge tip, which believe it or not, can be very, very helpful (so don’t throw those away).

Review: The Body Shop Body Butter Duo

           The Body Shop's Regular Body Butters are already fantastic, but after this product came out  their body butters are absolutely unbeatable. I have had this product and tested it for about 3 months now. Just incase if you guys want to know, I prefer wearing this product at night. This is definitely the coolest body moisturizer I have ever seen because the product is split into two halves. One half is the regular (and amazing!) body butter that you can buy by itself individually and the other half is a thicker and has a more balm-y texture to it, kinda like a lip balm but for your entire body. The thinner body butter texture, which BTW is thick anyway, is supposed to be used for the entire body and I personally find it very moisturizing for the skin. The thicker body butter is supposed to be used for the parts of your body that get dried up the most, like your elbows, knee caps, etc. This product works EXTREMELY well for clearing out the chapped, stone dry parts of your body and the moisture in your skin lasts very, very long.

Beauty Tag: This or That?

What is the beauty tag all about?
So first of all there are many parts in this tag (for example, there is fashion, makeup, nails,etc. But I'm only doing makeup) and you basically have to choose between, well, this or that. So, now let's start.

Eye Makeup Tutorial for Glasses!

          Today, I will be posting my very first makeup tutorial on the blog! I'm really excited for this post. It is really simple to do, and I have tried to use eyeshadows that are more generic and easy to find for this eye makeup tutorial. I do wear glasses, and this inspired me to do my own makeup tutorial for glasses on the blog. 
          That (below) is the before and after, just incase you wanted to know. Thanks for reading and I hope this helps!

          Vaseline is definitely one of my favorite products which is available almost anywhere. It may just look like clear, sticky petroleum jelly, but it hydrating skin is not all that it does. So that is why I (Ananya) rounded up my top 10 ways to use this absolutely fantastic product.

Review: Chanel Brilliant Extreme Glossimer in 169 Jalousie

          First makeup blog, yay! Today, I will be reviewing Chanel's Lipgloss in Jalousie which was released in the Roses Ultimes de Chanel collection. Two of my favorite youtubers Amarixe, aka Allison and Fleur de Force, aka Fleur rave about this lipgloss. It is definitely one of the most gorgeous lipglosses I have seen in a while. It is a bright fuchsia pink with a lighter pink pearl to it. It looks absolutely beautiful in the tube and looks as good on the lips. The colour is also very, very pigmented and even before I could swatch it, I was automatically impressed.
