Kumaun(Uttarakhand) trip and a small haul



                               
Hi Friends,

Hope all of you are doing well. It has been a long time since my last post but I was away on an amazing vacation with my family that we have been planning for over a year, a 13 days trip to Kumaun (Uttarakhand) trip that includes Nainital, Ranikhet , Kausani, Munsiyari and Almora. These places are very near to Himalayas and yes you can view The Great Himalayan range from a very short distance.

Now without wasting anymore time let me share some shots of the Himalayas and adjacent rivers and many more that I have taken while traveling.




















Also time to show a little haul that I collected from there.  From the local store I have bought these items which is really a small number, but their stocks were amazing, from handmade soaps, body cream, body scrub, body oil to a lot more. I have never tried any apricot based products so thought of giving these apricot babies a try, but they also had other products based on the likes of orange, watermelon and more. They claim their products are 100% natural from The Great Himalayan herbs. I haven’t started using them yet, but expect a full review of these products soon.

So till then enjoy these photos.



Bbye

Benefit - They're Real! Push-Up Liner review



Hi Friends,

Today I am going to review a much raved product of #Benefit, They're Real! Push-Up Liner. I bought this eye liner at my last makeup haul from #luxola. I was much excited to try this liner as I have heard a lot about this product, even though I have a love hate relationship with this liner.



Packaging:
This eyeliner comes in a sturdy black plastic pen like wand. The tip is in a slant shape and made of silicon which is very flexible. We have to twist the bottom which has to be done a number of times, after which the product comes out of the tip. This flexible tip comes with an orange plug.


Price:
 987(INR) for mini version from Luxola


My take on Benefit They are reall!! Push up liner:

It is slightly dry formula, not at all runny but very thick. It is creamy, super matte and glides pretty decent on eyes. Slanted shape of the tip makes it more convenient to achieve your desirable line. It is little difficult to work initially as because of the twisting part but once you get the hang on it, will be easier. As it is little lumpy, you need to apply it very quickly and for the first time when you will work with it, you have to be little careful as lot of product will come out while twisting and you have to be flexible while applying on the eyes. What I don’t like about this product is, that it flakes a lot, even if you use an eye primer or a facial mist, it will keep on flaking and this is so annoying. I think, just for this reason, I will not be using it for daily wear and rather will use it for occasional wear.


Pros:

·         It is creamy and highly pigmented
·         It is super matte
·         It dries up quickly
·         Waterproof
·         Smudge proof
·         Slanted tip is convenient to apply


Cons:

·         Little lumpy
·         Keep on flaking
·         Dry formula difficult to apply
·         Difficult to find how much the product left as it is made of opaque wand




Verdict:

I have a love hate relationship with this product, love that it’s pigmented, its creamy formula slanted tip helps to achieve a perfect winged line but don’t like the dry formula as it lumps and flakes after sometime of applying. So if you can look over the flaking and dry part, for achieving a perfect winged line, nothing could be better than this.
So my friends, don’t forget to share your experience with this product if you have used it before.
Bbye<3<3

It’s a little haul time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Hi Friends,


Today I am going to share my tiny haul from Dubai. One of my friends was returning to India and a thought came to my mind. Yes!!! This is the time to splurge myself with some goodies which are very difficult to get here in India. So I asked her to bring these tiny stuffs for me.



The Balm Meet Matte(e) Nude Eyeshadow:

As I am mad for neutral matte eyeshadows. I have always wanted #TheBalmMeetMatt(e)Nude eyeshadow palette in my life. It is not easy to get here in India, so I thought of what better than to get this from Dubai, YAAY!!!!







Now the worst part of this haul..:-(One of the eyeshadow has been broken into pieces while traveling.


 
Nyx soft matte lip crème in Antwerp and Cannes:

OMG!!!! At last they are in my life.  These two lip cremes were in my wishlist for the last 4 months, I was dying to try them out but they are not available here in Kolkata. I was hopefully waiting for a miracle to happen and at last my friend brought a smile on my face.

I got two shades in Antwerp and Cannes




So that’s all from my teeny-tiny haul, I hope you guys enjoyed it. Reviews will be coming soon.


So till then bbye<3<3
