Love with The Balm

Hi there!!!

I got super excited when i heard that The balm cosmetic has launched in India with Mynykaa. I have been using the balm for a while now and i just love there products.Firstly they have an amazing packaging which i love and that attracts me more in buying the product, even the names are quirky.As its was not available in India earlier i use to purchase there products from dubai whenever i visited.I am not going to review each and every product coz there r tons of reviews article out there.And even these product has launched quiet long time ago.These are my favourites and my take on it.

       Well, the first thing i purchased from the balm was Meet Matt(e) Nude eyeshadow pallete.This pallete has an amazing pigmentation and the quality is really great,no fall outs.This pallete is truly for people who love matte nude eyeshadows.

       My second favorite is there mary-lou manizer its an highlighter.I love collecting highlighters and i had my eye on this for quite a long time.On my last visit to dubai i had to buy this. Its a perfect highlighter for all skin types .I will highly recommend this one of all.

My picture is not doing justice,this is truly one of the best highlighter i used.I suck at clicking picture,i am very new to it ,so plz bare with me…

        My third in the list is another highlighter cum blush cum shadow its Hot Mama.As said by them it can be used as a shadow or a blush and i even use it as a highlighter.This is a perfect shade for summer,it gives this natural glow and i love that.

           This liquid lipstick in shade Adoring is my all time favorite.Let it be summer or day time i always land up using this if i am going out.This is truly an ox blood colour and goes very well on lips..Its quite drying though so i would suggest to apply a lip balm before this.I love using dark shade so i am ok with such colour but for people who are not into these kind of shade has many option to choose from.


      Last but not the least is again an eyeshadow pallete its the Nude ‘tude eyeshadow pallete.Now who doesnt like only matte nude but want one two shimmery shade can definelty opt for this one.To be honest i am not huge fan of this pallete but i kind of like few shades in it , so thought of including it here.The shade sexy and seductive are few of my favorites.


     Thanks to nykaa that I can purchase more of the balm product now being in india.I am not sure whether all the product are available there but to but any of these product You can head to http://www.nykaa.com. You can even check the prices there.


Plz do leave a comment on which one you like the most and which one are you planning to buy.And even dont forget to guve your feedback .

Loads of love..be happy and lovely alwys.

Easy Breezy smokey eyes…

Hi!!!

As the scorching sun has made it too uncomfortable for us,Mumbaikers to go out. Minimal makeup is the only left with us but who doesnt like a smokey eye for that evening look with a little bit of glitter to glam up the look.

So I thought of creating this look which only requires minimal base with smokey glittery eye and nude lips.

imp 1

In summer heavy makeup can melt down so its important to only apply the base where is needed.

  • I started of with a tiny bit of foundation just to the places where i need to even up the complexion.
  • Then a conceler only around my eyes as i have dark circles.
  • For my eyes i used a wet brush for my black powder eyeshadow but even a black gel liner can work well.Using my brush i push the shadow inwards from both the corner leaving an empty hallow space in between .if it becomes too dark adding on a dark brown shade will help it to settle down a bit.i used a wet brush to keep my shadows in place.using a gel liner will surely be better.
  • Then for adding on a glitter to this look we need glitter gluu but its completely o.k to use a wet brush dip in glitter.this way there ll be no fall out .so i filled in the empty space inbetween with glitter .I used inglot loose glitter in shade 86 but any gliiter will do well with black outer corners.
  • Then i applied a very thin line of kajal in my water line anf tight line.smudging it a little.using the black and brown eyeshadow i smudged the liner .and that’s it for the eyes its that easy breezy.
  • To complete of i used mascara aand a highlighter over my brow bone.
  • In summer use of eyebrow pencil should be minimal.so i used a very light stroke to fill in my brows.
  • On cheeks, blush and lots and lots and lots of highlighter to give that summer glow.
  • On lips i have used a nude lipstick.

All the products used i have listed down below:

  • Fit me foundation in shade 128 warm beige
  • loreal true match conceler in light medium
  • mac mineralize skin finish in medium dark
  • for eyes Lorac pro palette black and brown eyeshadow …can use maybelline gel liner instead
  • Rimmel scandaleyes kohl kajal
  • maybelline the falsies black drama
  • Inglot glitter 86
  • maybelline fashion brow in brown
  • elf twinkle pink blush
  • pac 03 highlighter
  • nyx lingerie in shade exoticimp 4imp 3imp 2Hope u liked it…

Plz share ur views below…and do leave ur feedback ,it will help me improve as i m very new to the blogging world..

loads of love,

5 reasons you shld visit The LiL Flea

Hi there!!!
Last weekend I had been to this amazing and the happiest flea market in Mumbai, The Lil Flea at Jio
garden Bandra Bkc. It was such a heartwarming experience and massive festival of shopping, food and
music. As it’s again on 8th and 9th of April 2017, I thought of visiting there again. That place gave me a
happy feeling and that made me share my thoughts here.

Well said enough let me share with you guys five reasons why you should definitely visit this place 

  • Amazing Ambiance: This Place is divinely beautiful. Everything about this place was so different.
    The moment you step in, you can see amazing décor. Every corner has been beautifully set up,
    the fairy lights, the delicate tents; the sayings on different corners will surely brighten up the
    mood. The entrance itself is very promising that there is more to welcome you inside. The place
    is filled with joy and being there will surely make you feel for a moment that you are not in
    Mumbai… 
  •  Shopping: they have some 250 pop up shops from all over the country. From amazing dream
    catchers, to home décor, clothing, foot wear, and many more stuffs to shop. Some popup shops
    had quirky stuff that will surely make you a shopping spree. There is even a place for kids to
    play around so drop on your kids there while you go shopping spree. And even if not planning
    to buy, a window shopping will be a kind of therapy to the eyes… pretty stuffs do change
    moods!!!
  •  Mouth drooling food: They have a separate food corner and that part you surely don’t want to
    miss when you go there. There are many options to choose from Indian to Italian to Mexican
    and the mouthwatering desert. As I was running short of time and I had these stuffed kulcha
    there I couldn’t try anything more but this time when I go there ,I will make sure I don’t miss
    out on anything.  
  •  Music: There is always a live band playing and such a pleasure to sit and relax. A perfect way to
    spend your weekend. There are 12 live bands going to perform this weekend. After a long week
    of work and stress this will surely unwind.
  • Capture a picture : Now this is something that depends on person to person but if you are a
    freak like me when it comes to clicking picture, you should definitely go there coz on every
    corner you will surely find something to click a picture with.  

So if u are in Mumbai don’t miss The Lil Flea which will surely make you feel happy and
joyful vibe. Be there on 8th and 9th of April. There is an entry fees of 250 rs person
