Colorbar True Shine Lip Gloss in Fab
I am yet to review this one. This is from my fav brand "Colorbar". This can not really be included here for the pigmentation but the fact is, it is a transparent gloss with reddish sheen and glitters. This stays on forever. It makes lips look full and doesn't really bleed if you wear it over any lipstick.
My Rating 3.5/5 
This is a must have for me. I love the super creamy formula and staying power. It smells yummy and it is not a bright red but a very wearable red lipstick that can make anybody look elegant.
My Rating: 4.5/5
Buy it on Amazon.in
Makeover Lipstick in Hot Red:
This is one brand I have never heard of. I was given as a complimentary gift for commenting on one of their pics on the brand's facebook page. Apart from the new brand name etc, I actually felt the colour is bright.! Super bright and amazingly pigmented. But, make sure you wear it for a night party.
My Rating : 4/5
You can get it on their Facebook page
Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Love that Rust
No Doubt, I love this range of lipsticks from colorbar. This one is more towards the rusty red. Again a wearable red. But for me, it has a con. It has the shimmer which I hate. I hate lipsticks that has shimmer in them.They give that extra attention to the lips which I hardly ever like.
My Rating : 3.5/5

Lakme Enrich Lipsticks in 427
Lakme Enrich Lipsticks in 358
Makeup Academy MUA Lipstick in Shade 10
Well, I love this brand for its super quality and amazing prices. The drugstore brand of UK, came up with 1 Pound lipstick which is almost 90bucks. I have few of them, you can check the swatches of them here. Out of them all, I totally adore this colour. This one does have very fine shimmer however, they never get into the fine lines. Never make you feel weird about wearing this colour.
My Rating : 3.5/5
Vivo Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Pucker Red
Again a tomato red lipstick from another UK brand named Vivo Cosmetics. It is awesomely pigmented. This is a true red but falls into the cherry shade line. But totally worth the price.
My Rating : 4/5
Lakme Enrich Lipsticks in 358 and in shade 427
These are again my fav. not for the quality but I like them coz they are my first ever finds in the search for my true red lipstick. I see 427 falls more towards the cherry red shade whereas 358 stands ahead a bold bright beautiful shade. I hate their smell as I find it weird and cheap but the creamy formula is hydrating.
My Rating : 4.5/5

Hey girls
We love lip balms. Don't we? Irrespective of our skin type, skin tone, the place where we live lol nothing really matters to us when it comes to the lip balm. I bet all of us have at least 3 variants of the lipbalm. For me, the lip balm is the most important thing in life. LOL did I sound weird ? But seriously, I can not live without the lip balm coz my lips are super dry and they tend to chap very easily and I need to moisturise them every now and then. So, we are now going to read about such lipbalms from one of my favourite makeup brand from UK, ie Makeup Academy..MUA
We are now going to check out few pics and review of their Love Hearts Lip Balms!
MUA Love Heart Lip Balms in Sugar Lips, Great Lips, Hot Lips - Review, Swatches

Rita Ora Grammys 2014 Inspired Eye Makeup


Hey People,
I was little down today and only thing which could lift up my mood is the color and I wanted to try some eye makeup. Apart from Makeup and jeans, I love music and the Grammys too.
Yeah, Grammys has music,awards and makeup/fashion. So, when I was checking on who wore what this look by Rita Ora grabbed my attention. It was simple yet stunning.
So, I just created a look inspired on her purple smokey eyes.
Please let me know if you like it or if you have any suggestions on this one.

MUA Pearl Single Eye Shadow in Shade-12 - Review, Swatches


Hey people
Long time that I reviewed an eye shadow. This one is from the very few single eye shadows I own. This one is from one of my favourite brands based in UK ie the MakeUp Academy aka MUA Cosmetics.  
Speaking about the single eye shadows, I like that concept. It is super compact and mini which can be carried around for a quick touchup. It occupies very less space and it can be easily fit in my jeans. Though this has so many positive notes, not many will ever be carrying the eyeshadows along with them unlike the lipbalms.
Anyway coming to the review,
I have already reviewed a beautiful shade of MUA single eyeshadow in Shade 13 HERE 
I'm sure the swatches tempt you enough to grab them all. I already updated my cart with few of these which are some dupes of the very famous MAC single eye shadows.

Blue Ombre Eye Makeup

Hey People
How is it going ? Btw, the Monday is just ended :D just 4 more days for the coveted weekend. yay
Rambling time: lol
I am going crazy. I am experimenting too much these days. The other day, I changed my hair style. Yesterday I have checked upon the very famous Korean style Gradient lips (check the post here)
Today, I have created an eye makeup purely based on blue.
I have never thought of creating an entire eye makeup with a single colour family. 
Well, today I just did it.
I have used some 4 shades of blues to complete the look.
Check what I made with such a cool aqua bold colour.

Swatches of 6 Nude Lip Sticks/Lip Gloss for Indian (Dusky) Skin Tones From My Collection

Hey Girls..
There is a reason behind posting this. When I started with the lipsticks, all I could search/buy is a nude lipstick so that it wouldn't make my lips standout and grab that unnecessary attention. So, I bought few lippies which would just cover up my pigmentation on lips. But now, I have changed and my approach towards the lipsticks changed too. I am more into bright colors now and I guess I am going to be this way for some more months :D
Okay, coming to the post.
Here are the swatches of the nude lipsticks which would suit the best for Dusky Indian Skin tones.

MUA MakeUp Academy Blusher - Shade 3 Review,Swatches,FOTD

Hey people
Happy Friendship Day to all my new friends I met in this blogger world. Thanks to all those who supported me till date and I am glad that I met few very nice people.
I somehow wanted to write a post today and showcase my face (Its been so many days that I clicked myself) so, here I am with a FOTD.
I always admired the way a blush can impart some healthy glow to the cheeks. I wanted to try it out on my huge cheeks too. But never it worked as I'm naive in this field.
But with loads of courage and confidence, I put my face with my blush 
*request you to comment/suggest me on my baby step towards the blush*
I am going to review the basic blusher from my very favourite brand, MUA Cosmetics.

Part of our amazing £1 line, our blushers come in six shades. They range from pink and coral to deeper plums and natural nudes so you’ll definitely find one that suits you the most! Although to be honest with you, at £1 there’s no reason why you shouldn’t own all six! Just simply sweep across the apples of the cheek and up to the brow bone to create a soft yet beautiful contour. Gorge!
Price and Quanity:
It is costs £1.00 for 2.4 gms

Think back to the day when he looked at you…on Valentine’s day…and you went *blushing pink*. That is the inspiration behind my look. I call it “When You Look at me, I go Pink, and when you don’t, its Purple.”
The transition from pink to purple in my look is the same way when he looks at you and he doesn't.
I hope you like my look as much as I liked creating it.
