NYX Matte Lipsticks in Natural,Shocking Pink,Euro Trash and Sierra Review,Swatches,LOTD

Well these were bought a while back. I had them for too long and I finally found time to write a review on these cute ones. NYX lippies always seemed enticing to me. I now own few of these and few of their round lipsticks. Their lipcreams are yet to be tried. I always have to buy them online and I'm really not sure about the colour and texture.So,I skipped them all the while.However,this time I am sure I am picking up a pink lipcream.Okay,now coming to these I have got it from b2nshop. Me along with a blogger friend placed the order and we got the package in 20days and all the items came in a perfect condition.

The lipstick comes in a black matte plastic bullet with transparent rim.The cap just fits with a click sound and hence travel friendly. However,the plastic case is a bit cheap and tend to break if you don't handle them properly. The names are printed on the bottom of the lipstick,which makes it easier to pick up from your huge lipstick stash.

My Experience with the NYX Matte Lipsticks:
I believe that matte lipsticks stay longer and usually leave a tint behind. I like the way they leave a slight tint on which I apply the lipbalm and maintain the not so made up look for the evenings. Anyway,this is my perception and I am sure that I can be proved wrong too.Apart from all the pros and cons, I like matte finish and not creamy as they tend to bleed on my lips.*I have the habit of biting my lips* so considering all of them,when I had a chance to buy the lipsticks, I went overboard and got these matte ones.
These are too matte. I mean, they are creamy and extremely pigmented but the just coat your lips. You gotta scrub off all the dryness from your lips coz these lippies are no good in covering up the patches or dry dead skin. In fact, these enhance the lines. With one swipe, you get the true colour but you can give 2 coats to have the perfect pout. I love their choice of colours and most of them are very unique and I like the way they gave names and not numbers or anything. They stay on for 4 hours surviving liquids and snacks. Later it fades away in patches and you have to reapply. Else you can apply your lipbalm and blend in for the tinted glossy soft evening look.You have to use the makeup remover to take the lipstick off completely. I have dry lips so, I prefer applying lipbalm beneath the lipstick else I'm not really sure of my survival. Yes, that says my addiction to the lipbalm.Overall, a perfect matte lipstick for those all matte lip lovers.
Do not go by the name! It is not natural at least not on me. It looks light pinky purple which may look great on fair skin tones.
Shocking Pink:
It is a loud bright fuchsia pink. It suits me so well but it is too bold for my locality :(
Euro Trash:
I picked this thinking that this would be a n*de but the shade card on their website is much deceiving. It turned out to be coral orange. 
It is just like the name.Bright warm toned orange that suits everyone. This is my favourite.
The Swatches:
Sharing the swatches with not so confidence.. Coz they are a bit nice in reality. The pics are not to their true color. Blaming my camera for this :(

NYX Matte Lipsticks in Natural,Shocking Pink,Euro Trash and Sierra Review,Swatches,LOTD
1. Perfect matte lipstick.
2. Once set, stays on for 4-5 hours.
3. Chick packaging.
4. Amazing shade selection.
5. Easy on pocket.
1. Texture is drying and using a lipbalm beneath is necessary.
2.Settles in fine lines.
3. Exfoliating your lips before you apply this lipstick is a must.
4.Availability, no these are available in India too but for way too pricey than their original price.
Final Words:
If you love to flaunt matte lips and not knowing which one to choose and then blot.. Go grab these lipsticks and you never have to blot to make them look matte as they are already the perfect matte.

Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Cream Blush in Pink Glow and Soft Peach - Review, Swatches, FOTD

Okay, I started falling for blushes! I fell in love with them so much that I started wearing them even to my office. Yes, I prefer the mild peachy and earthy ones as of now. I wear them so light that they just give some fresh nice glow and at the same time not thaaat visible. Here in Hyderabad, at least for work girls/women hardly wear makeup precisely the locals. The Telugu girls shy away from loud makeup and all they usually wear is some lipstick and kohl (I am not talking about everybody but I have not seen many wearing lipstick even.) Once I started wearing the blush, I slowly started liking them. I never knew how to even wear a blush before. Here is the proof There I wore my first blush. I must say that I loved it. May be because the powder blush is easier to apply and you don't really need a technique for that. But, when it comes to the liquid blushes or the cream blushes you should know how to use it and how to blend the blush properly. I consider myself naive in this. Right then,Oriflame introduced their new range of cream blushes which are not less than gorgeous. Read on, if they really worth the buy.

Alpine Secrets Sandalwood Gel Body Scrub - Review

Hey girls..Recently I am into scrubs. But most of them are creamy and thick.I was desperately searching for a gel kind body scrub off lately. Since it's summer here and the Hyderabad climate takes a worst turn every summer. Temperature is not less than 43C and this time it is expected to reach 49C. I am worried about it. Anyway, the summers are the worst enemies of the skin.The strong UV rays damage the skin the most. We all use sun screens to protect our skin but how many creams you may use on the skin, ex foliating is the key to remove the dead cells and tan formed on the skin.Ex foliation can be done using a bit hard scrub for body and a gentle one for face.My body type is normal and I do not want to use a creamy scrub and make it oily or over moisturised. All.All I wanted was a gel scrub which is easy to use and the gel is light on the skin.That's how I discovered this amazing product on Flipkart.

Color Wedding Dresses for 2014

Ever since as a child, I liked long gowns. If the gown has too many layers then I must own it. I wore frocks till the age of 15 then I shifted to my tomboy thingy and stuck to jeans.
Now that I am in my 20's and I am really waiting to get married soon(Yeah! I want to be with my guy real soon) But whenever the topic of marriage cross my mind, I keep thinking of the Christian Weddings!
The only reason why I love their weddings is, the dress they wear!
I looove the long gowns the bride wear and I also admire the tuxedo which the groom wear:) I feel sorry for the groom as he has not many options in choosing the colors. However, the bride is too lucky in this case. Previously they used to wear the white dresses but now that the times have changed, the bride is experimenting with the colors.
That is when we get the beautiful ideas in Colour Wedding Dresses. Dressv.com is an online website which exclusively has the best wedding dresses and they ship world wide.
Lets see few of their collection.

This Glamorous, Dramatic dress is my first choice! It is totally vintage. It is rich. The flowers just add to the glam and I am sure that this dress can make people jealous.

Holika Holika Sand Nails in 06 Review and Swatches

Hey Girls..you know how much I love the Korean Makeup and Skincare, I am slowly shifting my basic needs to the Korean brands. Recently I found love in nail paints and I really wanted to try the texture ones. There are many brands which recently launched their own textured nail paints but they not really impressed me.May be because they didn't have many colours or the glitters(which I didn't want in my textured paint). I knew my requirement was clear. I wanted a light shade and a normal paint with no chunks of glitter. When I ran out of my foot masks,I wanted to shop for them and suddenly I found this textured nail paint from the brand "Holika Holika"

Baba Ramdev Patanjali Haldi Chandan Kanti Body Cleanser- Soap Review

To start off, I always loved Patanjali products. May be because of their no chemicals slogan or it may be because they are of all natural ingredients.
One reason why I never think twice before buying the Patanjali products is, Most of them are effective and are super accessible as I have a store near by my place. So, whenever I pass through that lane,I end up visiting the store and getting things that seem interesting to me.
Anyway, I picked up few soaps on my last visit(read in December) and here is a quick review on one !
