Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder 30/10/2016

A must for every makeup junkie..!!

Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder I am a huge makeup junkie and I love experimenting with new products all the time..!! I have seen and heard a lot about ben nye banana powder. Many makeup artists on youtube use it in their daily makeup routine and I was a bit unsure if or not to buy it and I am glad that I did. It is perfect..!! If you are getting late and have like 5 minutes to do your makeup, this powder is the only thing you probably need. It does everything, cover blemishes, contours and gives a nice coverage and, also it makes your skin glow. It blends beautifully with your skin and makes your makeup look flawless. It sets your foundation well too, for a good 5 or 6 hours. It doesn't get too cakey and controls oil too and is the perfect setting powder. There is every positive aspect of the powder that you need to know. It is kind of expensive if you are a beginner but I mean it when I say this, you won't regret buying this.

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pink Shock 28/10/2016

To Go LipCare Product

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pink Shock When the first Baby lips balm was released, I didn't really like it all that much. It didn't hydrate or give color but then they introduced this bomb Electro Pop lip balm which is amazing. I face a lot of problem with dry and cracked lips, especiallly around winter and this product solved my problem. I love makeup but when I go out for dinner or something, matte lipsticks can get uncomfortable when it comes to eating. I use this instead because it keeps my lips soft and hydrated and gives it a good, long lasting color. Another thing is that it doesn't need reapplication for about 12 hours. This is my to go lip care product, I carry it around in my purse all the time. It doesn't get sticky or make your mouth feel weird or dry. Its simply one of the best lip balms I've ever used.

Revival - Selena Gomez 28/10/2016

My All Time Favorite Album

Revival - Selena Gomez Revival, is the second studio album by selena gomez, an American singer. It has the hit tracks, "same old love", "good for you". It was on the the rolling stone's top 50 albums of 2015 list. All the tracks are catchy and they actually do the job of uplifting my mood on various occasions. There are 11 tracks in the album, excluding the bonus tracks and total length of the album is about 40 minutes. All the songs have different themes, Me & The Rhythm is about losing yourself on the dance floor while the title track "Revival" deals with self restoration. All in all, The album is of a different kind, Gomez hits back at haters, sings about past relationships, all in one album. You can dance to a few tracks and you also feel like sitting by the window and absorb yourself yourself in the lyrics in a few tracks. Its pretty diverse.

Tresemme Tisserand Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner 28/10/2016

My holy Grail

Tresemme Tisserand Tresemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner Let us first talk about my hair type- Black and extremely curly, thick, long and extremely frizzy. I always feel the need to try new products and this one didn't fail me at all. I have tried a lot of shampoos and this one has been my favorite for the past 2 years or so. It smells extremely good and it doesn't exactly straighten my hair but it does leave it soft and silky and non- frizzy. That is exactly what I need..!! It has keratin, a protein present in yogurt, and is the most important constituent of hair. When your hair is physically damaged, the keratin levels deplete. This shampoo is the best way of getting back those proteins. It doesn't damage my hair and gets rid of grease and keeps it healthy. I can actually let my hair loose and let it air dry without any worries, which I usually don't because it can get disastrous sometimes. In my opinion, it is one of the best hair products I have used and I would recommend it to anyone who has dry and damaged hair which is need of moisture. ...

Veet Immac Ready to Use Wax Strips Effective Even on Short Hair 28/10/2016

Really Painful And Not All That Effective

Veet Immac Ready to Use Wax Strips Effective Even on Short Hair We all know that waxing hurts. I have tried all different modes of hair removal; shaving, electric roll on razors, epilators, creams, waxing.. i decided to give the ready to use wax strips a try. I bought the full body waxing kit and I simply followed the directions. When I pulled that thing off of my skin, I literally screamed. It hurt really bad and the worst part, it didn't remove hair all that much. There were a few places where it didn't really pull the hair out and there were those pores, which are called strawberry pores. I used the perfect finish wipes because a lot of wax, extra wax, was still stuck on my legs and that was really annoying. The wipes made my skin smooth but then My skin became red and small bumps started forming. It looked like some allergic rash thing. I immediately ran my leg under cold water in an attempt of soothing my skin. After 10-15 minutes, it got all better. You can probably tell that My experience with the Veet Wax strips isn't all that pleasant. Do a skin test 48 hours prior to check for allergies, my fault I didn't do it. The part where it does pull the hair perfectly which is like really less. About 20% or so, it does it very well, it gets the ingrown hair out, but other than that, I wasn't happy with the results.

NYC Show Time Volumizing Mascara Black 27/10/2016

Best Dupe For A High end Eyeliner

NYC Show Time Volumizing Mascara Black I am a makeup junkie and i try my best to use products which are not expensive but give excellent results and which match up to the quality of high end products. Kylie cosmetics and Anastasia Beverly Hills are not in my budget so the next best thing is drugstore products. This liquid eyeliner from NYC is perfect. It gives a great and smooth finish and those who are eyeliner experts will have no trouble using it. It might take some time to master using this eyeliner because of the way the applicator is designed. I don't think this is a waterproof but it is definitely long lasting. It lasted for about 12 hours for me and didn't really cause irritation to my eyes. I would suggest that you do a test on your skin for 48 hours to check for signs of allergies. in my opinion, it is a cheap version of the high end eyeliners which gives great results as well, and now it is the part of my regular makeup routine.

The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold 27/10/2016

Creepy but compelling

The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold I found this book a bit too creepy for my liking but once you start a book, you have to finish it. Book lovers understand that. The best thing about the book was that the emotions of the family, the father especially, made me cry. The way Sebold wrote it was really realistic. The concept of life in heaven after death was a different concept and I really liked it. it just shows that life goes on. Everyone has to move on from deaths after a while. you can't mourn forever. The way the girl watched everybody's actions from heaven was really heartbreaking and an entirely different way of depicting life after death. The book can get creepy and honestly I may have spent a sleepless night or two. I wouldn't say that's a really bad thing but That's the power of writing. A must read for fiction lovers. I am unaware of the price since I borrowed it from a local public library

Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances - John Green 27/10/2016

Lost track of time reading this

Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances - John Green This is a rather compelling book because in the end, (spoiler alert, maybe) all the characters just come together, from all three stories. It may not have a huge plot twist in between but it is romantic and sweet and also a bit sad at times, which is the perfect combo. Not one of the best books but definitely worth reading if you are into romantic novels. I lost track of time reading this, I literally finished the book in one sitting. I packed in my bag when I was planning a vacation and didn't get time to read it. Finally one day, I sat down determined and started reading. 5 hours passed by and I was down to the last 20-30 pages. Even though the plot wasn't all that thrilling, there was something about that book. I didn't feel like putting it down. In my opinion, its a pretty good book and a must read for teens.

Tresemme Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth System 27/10/2016

Really amazing product. Worth the buy..!!

Tresemme Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth System If you have curly hair and are longing for straight hair that lasts for a week after flat ironing, this is something you should buy. It goes with the keratin smooth 7 day smooth shampoo and conditioner and to be honest, I was really impressed with the results. I shampooed and used the conditioner as usual and used the serum on damp hair. I spread it evenly and blow dried my hair. It became big and poofy. Then I flat ironed my hair and finished off with a hairspray. It was stick straight for a week which is amazing. It is heat activated, which means it works only when a flat iron is used. You can use your regular shampoo and conditioner, but you probably won't see the best results. In my opinion, it is worth buying. It isn't that expensive too and I really love using this especially around fall and winter. ...
