Out Of The Box NOTD & LOTD & EOTD

To live a creative life, we must loose our fear of being wrong

I believe every girl has that creative bone in her.Give her a sack and she will turn that into a couture. Being an Ex Niftian , experimenting in all  fields from kitchen to home decor to even makeup, I have never been shy of exploring my creative side.Yes i was always the out of the box girl.Nothing ever is straight for me.I love making simple things complex.

And so how can the makeup artist in me is unaffected by this syndrome. There is that compulsive streak in me which works overtime to get that different desired look.Mixing lipsticks has always been my forte.That’s what you call nowadays Ombre lips.But honestly i have tried and tested this long  ago.Same with the nails.My instagram account is full of my silly experiments.I know they are not very practical but a girl has to do what she has to do .Right??

Sharing with you some of my crazy out of the box Notd,Lotd,Eotd.Hope you will enjoy as much as i do..

Shades Of Nykaa Nailpaints

                             If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies

As they say change is the flavour of life.Diversity in all aspects of your life brings lots of salt and sugar.And same goes with my diversified interest in beauty world.

How many of you religiously takes care of your nails?Remember the last time you have pampered your nails, indulged in some creative manicure.I know going to the salon regularly is a far fetched idea.In today’s rat race, nobody has the time or patience.And it certainly cost a bomb.So why not appease ourselves with easy , creative and affordable mani.

Till now as beauty blogger, i have tested and experienced almost all drugstore brands in nailpaints.By far Maybelline scored the hit spot.But that was before I tried the NYKAA inhouse nail enamels.Such stunning mix of shades.They took my breath away.Each shade screams sophistication.The pastel collection are to die for.

Packaging is simple with a sturdy bottle but perfect for travel purpose..At 149 INR , its cold on your pocket.Quality of the brush is supreme.Long and easy to handle.The patented two-fold plasticizer prevents chipping. Contains a UV filter to prevent discoloration and yellowing.

12809536_10154675107588289_5651470009349331941_n

There are about 30 shades available in three different categories.My personal favourite is the pastel ones.From mommy to working women to college goers, all shades are perfect and comfortable to any age group.Bless the colour designer, who came up with these subtle yet chic shades.

These high reflection nailpaints delivers one stroke coverage.Double strokes definitely adds up to their longevity.Apply some top coat for a smooth mattifying finish.They are non glossy and gel like which prettify your nails instantly giving some cosmopolitan vibes.They dries up instantly and spare you for doing red carpet shakes.;).

 

I picked up two shades Lychee Delight and Mint Meringue.They are the most enchanting colours from the lot.They have garnered ample amount of compliments  already.My nails never looked so beautiful and subconsciously  my hands danced more than me.The formula is super encouraging as it last for at least 4 days without chipping.They have turned my  brittle nails into stronger self and healthy.

 

Rest let my pictures do the talking.I won’t rest till I get the whole range in my vanity.I will be spamming you with lots of my nail pictures and more of Nail art designs with DIY.So stay tuned!!

Do let me know which one is your favourite and if you don’t have ordered yet, Go grab It.

After all any woman can wear a great outfit, but it is her nails that makes the statement.

 

Lakme-Eyeconic in Regal Green,Royal Blue & turquoise-Review

Since time immoral, Kajal has always been associated with Indian women.It’s a known to be a staple beauty products for us.I still have my infant picture with deep kohl smeared eyes which was supposed to be have medicinal value like improving vision.But now for me it has become a necessity. I just can’t cross my threshold with kohl in my eyes.

So when I heard Lakme has launched some new coloured kajal in their Eyeconic series , I just had to get my hands on them before anybody else.Yes i have a compulsive disorder.It’s been in my vanity for two weeks now but couldnt able to write a review before.But better late than never.

The packaging is similar to the black and white eyeconic.Honestly i was super disappointed with the white one.It just didn’t budge and consistency is very poor.That was the reason I was a bit putoff to buy all the three coloured eyeconics.Regal green, Royal blue and Turquoise.But in the end my innerself Goddess won.At 275 INR, its not a very expensive deal.

12744082_10154643152403289_8274884681640397721_n

Regal Green and Turquoise have a very light difference in shades.As you apply on your eyes, it looks almost the same.But the best part is you can apply them on your lower lid like kohl(as it is called) and it would not look odd.Wonderful breather from black kohl.

I love playing with them.If you follow me on instagram, you will see lots of eotd’s on my page.You can either use them as simple eyeliner, can create a smudged eye look or a base  for coloured eyeshadows. I tried to create some stunning ombre effects using these.

12744296_10154643152313289_2890677082706547510_n

The pen is a twister with slick tip which makes the application easy. Regal green is most stunning out of the lot. Its metallic texture with little bit of shimmer makes your eyes stands out.I love mix and matching them with other eye pencil just according to mood or dress i wearing. Turquoise is also a stunner.But Royal blue is a deal breaker.It does not show up no matter how many swipes you apply.I had to put a liquid liner to get the desired effect.I would rather recommend blue from maybelline colossol.

12744346_10154643152123289_1553240841434225844_n

There longevity is quite good comparatively and stay put for 8 hours at least.A must have for beginners as one can use them to perfect their eyeliner application.I would certainly recommend them for working girls as variation everyday can boost your confidence and break that monotonous look.

12745978_10154643268178289_157537121712118759_n

This eotd i have created with Royal blue and regal green givinga ombre effect on the upper lid and turquoise to my water line.

What say girls which one are you planning to buy??

 

Cool toned Eye makeup with Berry Lips-Video

         “May the wings of your eyeliner always be even”

That was the quote which reminded me of my latest tutorial.I don’t believe i slayed my liner so perfectly.As it says practice makes a man perfect.(women perfecting her liners).

We are almost saying adieu  to winters and greeting spring with open smile and dreading for summers ahead.Though it would be a time for playing with all pastels around but we have to leave our berry plums and wine behind.That’s the reason I did this cool toned eye makeup  with berry lips video -a kind of farewell tutorial.

This video is an recreation once again of my favourite beauty blogger Lustre lux.She is the one from whom i learned alot.I wish i could be as good as her.

Hope you going to like and by the look of my previous videos, you will notice how far i have come in perfecting my techniques.Do let me know if you feel the same.

Colours Of Incolor Cosmetics-Review

                      “The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you”

Holla Everyone

Today we had sprinkle of rain and it hollered onset of spring.It’s the season of colour bright and sunny.Everything is bathed in sunlight.Buds blooming, leaves dancing and trees swaying with the winds rhythm.Its such a breathtaking picture all around.And that reminds me of my new discovery in beauty products.A brand with so much colours , intensity, versatility, economical and consumer friendly.

The brand Incolor presents one of their finest range of cosmetics.It offers finest range of products for face, eyes, skin, hands, lips.The company is a local brand and you would not find much on internet as well.But the products are available online on FLIPKART and SNAPDEAL.I got few of their products (alot) ranging from blush to lipliners to eyeshadows.I have posted a picture on my instagram handle and few of you asked me some relevant question.So i thought of doing a detailed post.

First let’s have a glimpse of all the stuff i got.

12744089_10154632536028289_6858671863978391433_n

So now you can imagine my excitement with all that stuff.I know the brand does nit have much presence and even the availability is an issue.Only either your local shops stock these or you can buy it online.The company really needs to work on their marketing .You would be amazed no product from the range goes beyond 350 INR.Ist it droolworthy??

12743709_10154632537188289_5988931973764272820_n

LIPLINERS: They have got such amazing shades almost in all required colours for your lips.These are retractable pens which are smooth and super easy to work with.They do not get dry & niether makes your lips chapped afterwards.At 175 INR, they are extremely affordable and can give some of the drugstore brands run for their money.I have used these in some of my videos if you want to check upon them.

12743626_10154632537093289_25320252007172130_n

12742674_10154632720333289_873306732746232305_n

Coloured Eyeliner Pencils: Will you believe  if i say they works far better than the Lakme Eyeconic kohl’s.Effortless application and intense colour payoff.There are no clumps and if you don’t rub yours eyes, it stays for as long as you want.True that!!Easy to sharp and can have the smudged smokey effect with your earbud. Price is 275 INR but totally worth your penny.

12745994_10154632536303289_3796559817585593883_n

12742143_10154632720258289_3866340603452175569_n

Liquid Coloured Liners: My holy Grail liners.Few days back i wanted to shoot a new video for Valentines and was looking for pink eyeliners which are so much hot trend these days.To my horror not even a single brand have this colour in their range.Even Mac has failed.And thats when i discovered the pink beauty.Does it resembles liners from maybelline hyper glossy range?.Along with the packaging they works as good. Yet to try the brown though.Price: 215 INR. Yes cheaper then the maybelline and the colour range is phenomenal

Blush Symphony -This the prettiest blush i have come across till now.Peach, pink  & shimmery, it took my breath away.Single stroke gives a immaculate payoff.You don’t need to pack them off like some other blushes from good brands. Have you tried the blush from maybelline fit me series.they are dud and expensive.This one at 350  INR is your perfect deal.

12744282_10154632720398289_4152635813470122407_n

Single Eyeshadows: The first thing attracted me was the cute packaging.But for me It was  rocket science to open them. I have got these four shades the  brick,lime green, regal green and royal blue. You can see the payoff of lime green in my last video with halo effect.Rest ones are yet to try but they are soft, nicely grounded , matte shades, gratifying payoff and super cheap.At 165 INR they deserves standing ovation.

12744584_10154632536243289_1143715401927466866_n

So this is pretty much my thought about them. For the downside, I would say the availability is the lowest point.You can list down many more negatives but then its alocal brand with so much affordable prices and honestly few of the products are far better work than the known ones.Just they don’t do enough publicity/marketing, it does not mean the brand is dud.

                                 You need to use them to Believe in them!!

PS: Its not a paid post!! As i said earlier I ‘ would rather be honest than impressive.
