M.A.C Archie's Girls Collection eye pencils 'Lord It Up', 'Black Swan' & 'Petrol Blue swatches & review

So the MAC Archie's Girls collection has hit the store and the irresistibly cute packing of the various products from the collection are literally begging us to take them home.

Well, I brought home three eye pencils and I am too lazy to do review them all separately so I am just going to do a collective review. Also because I don't want to sound like a stuck tape repeating the same things thrice. That's kinda lame :p

Chit-Chat Saturday Vol.4

Hello girlies :D

It's that time of the week when I wanna know more about what you guys :)


Today, temme about your favorite color when it comes to clothes. I love black and grey tops and tees. For Indian outfits, I am dying to own a white based suit with red embroidery/work on it. Every time I go suit shopping, I ask for white-red combo. MIL is fed up of my obsession with the white-red search haha...

M.A.C eye shadow 'Humid' swatch & review + EOTD

There are some eye shadows that you are bound to find in every eye makeup lover's stash and some colors that every eye makeup lover needs. I am going to show you one such shadow today. Presenting an  by MAC called 'Humid'. Let's not think about how the name is related to the shadow coz its beyond me :p




Packaging:
Available in a plastic box with a flip open transparent lid as well as a refill pan.

Color:
Acc. To MAC, Humid is an intense green with shimmer. And for once it is a very apt description. It comes out with a beautiful golden sheen, making it very apt to go with Indian outfits. It complements the Indian skin tone amazingly well :D






Texture:
Humid falls under the 'frost' category of MAC eye shadow textures. Normally frosted shadows are dry to touch and difficult to blend but Humid refutes both these characteristics, being very soft and creamy to touch and blends very easily.





Pigmentation and longevity:
Humid is highly pigmented and lasts for more then six hours very easily without creasing or fading. Very high for oily lids like mine ;)



Price: Rs. 720 for the refill pan and Rs. 950 for the boxed shadow. Quantity is 1.5gm.

Rating: 4.5/5 happi :)


I love Humid too much because it makes for an excellent eye liner too. In fact if you dab Humid over any green liner, the effect is super gorgeous. If there is one green eye shadow that you should have, then it is Humid :)

Chit-Chat Saturday Vol.3

Hey lovelies,
Hope everyone is having a good weekend :) Let's get chatty :)



We, humans are always unhappi about something or the else in our life. I am no different. There are a few things that I wish were different with me. Like my height. I am only 5.2" and my hubby is 6 ft. tall so we look soo different when I am not wearing heels. But I am always happi that the difference gives me scope to wear highest of heels that I can manage ;)

The one thing that majorly irks me is my acne prone skin. I wish I had a face clear of acne, acne scars and pigmentation.

What is the one thing you would like to change in your body ? Not talking of nature or temperaments here :)

Maybelline New York Color Sensational® Color Whisper™ Lip Color 'Rose Of Attraction' swatch & review + FOTD

Hello lovelies,
I am back after a short break and so very excited to do this post. Not just because this product is not available in India (yeah plain mean of me :p) but also because I am loving the idea of this product. It's the Maybelline New York Color Sensational® Color Whisper™ Lip Color in Rose Of Attraction.




Acc. to Maybelline New York, Color Whisper lippies are translucent gel-color with pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel.


  • Pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel.
  • No heavy waxes or oils.
  • Soft, sexy gel-color.
Let's get to the break down of this new kid ;)

Packaging:
These are pretty much similar to the original Color Sensational lipsticks but a bit slimmer and longer. The cover is color coordinated with the lipstick bullet.

Color:
Rose of Attraction is a sheer pretty rose pink with visible hint of shimmer. It doesn't come out too bright because of the slight pigmentation on my lips.



Texture:
Maybelline Color Sensational Whisper Lip Colors are soft gel with a hint of shimmer which doesn't feel gritty. The gel glides on the lips like...gel lol. The outcome is a shiny, sheer and well moisturized lip.



Pigmentation:
The brand clearly mentions these as translucent gels so you cannot expect opaque coverage from these. You can get enough color on the lips with 2-3 swipes.



Longevity:
Rose of Attraction lasted for 2 hours on me which is quite good for it being a sheer color, after which it faded evenly.

Price: 7.49$/3 gm.

Rating: 4.5/5


I am wearing Rose of Attraction here.

I can't wait for these to launch in India. I am definitely buying some more shades. I do have 2 more shades of these already but its only making me want more :p

Project Polish 75 ' Amy's Nail Boutique' and my April Fool's Day story !

Hello people,

Today was the April Fool's Day and I am hoping you managed to not get fooled. Well I got fooled by Kiran and missed an awesome chance of fooling my husband. I puked in the morning coz of the protein shake I had for breakfast and my daughter was all over the house broadcasting the news and hubby came to know with a worried face to confirm the news and I told him I was okay and not pregnant :p only to realize I should have fooled him and stressed him a bit more LOL

Moving onto the polishes, these indies were bought from here ...
