Revlon Photoready Colorstay Mineral Finishing Powder

Revlon photoready highlighter

Packaging: I love the way this product is packed. Black base with transparent glass like plastic lid makes it so discernable on my dressing table.
Also very easy to open with minimal chances of pinning in your nail and damaging the product.

Why I bought it?
I was looking for a highlighter with pink undertones. Normally all the highlighters are white transculent stuff that show up too much on tan Indian skin. So thought it will be good.

Did it served my purpose.?
Yes. It is a very good highlighter. It has pinkish undertones which goes well with any blush you are wearing. Also you can wear it on its own.
Very expensive. 1500 rs

Price vs Effectiveness vs Quantity
Its a win win product when measured in all these parameters.

Swatch for you

How I use it?
I use it with my blush brush or angular contouring brush.It is usually the last step of my makeup routine.

Will I buy it again?
I don't know. Its good but its too mich quantity at once. I cannot even think of finishing it up ever considering amount of highlighter I use.

Hope  you will like this post.
You can add your choice of hihhlighters in the comment section
See u soon

Rishikesh Rafting

Hey friends

I know it is quiet unusual to read a travel blog in the beauty blog but I had strong inclination to travel around and explore.
This is another part of me which exists along with my deep love for makeup and art .

I went to Rishikesh for  Rafting and I was super thrilled by the exotic Himalayan ranges,away from the hectic city schedules I felt so close to my being and everything was so natural and uncomplicated  Rishikesh is a famous holy city of India situated in Uttaranchal(former Uttar pradesh).Rishikesh isalso famous for Laxman Jhula , Temples and Spirituality  Mountains here aboard so many sages and saints who (might be) search fo higher reasons to life

Well , coming back to my adventure I did a 30 km stretch of rafting( longest in rishikesh) and that was from the small place Byassi to Rishikesh itself  . I am watersport savvy so couldn't resist River Ganga and was in the river for most of the times except  for the seven major rapids ( extreme turbulent river flow patches) I had on my track.As long as I was in the raft I was enjoying but afterward I was so tired.

The camp where I stayed was neat and clean, It had amazing location and River was so pristine over there
Despite applying tonnes of sunscreen both before and after our sport my skin got tanned. My back still has the curves of my swimsuit imprinted tanned. I realised then that  still  I need to work on my sunscreen.I posted it on my fb page as well. Here is the link just in case you want to add your comments

I want to know if you like these kind of posts.

Macademia Hair Care Range:Review


Yes its going to be a review on Macadamia Hair care!!

As much as you all I also wanted to have these beautiful foresty green brown bottles by my side and on my birthday feb 2013 I managed to celebrate my penchant for it.

Now I own them and almost obsessed them so much so that I don't forget to comb my hair at least thrice a day with the special comb infused with goodness of macadamia oil..

As you can see this was the box in which all the four products I bought were placed decently in thick plastic shelf hollowed out to place the bottles and comb nicely.

TECHNICALLY It is enriched with goodness of essential fatty acids which nourishes hair


  1. MACADAMIA SHAMPOO: Packaging super amazing. It is in toughened plastic bottle which is not easily squeezable and actually there is no need to squeeze because it comes with pump dispenser.Shampoo has no parabens and no sulphates and is colour safe. The one I got is the Rejuvenating shampoo. On my hair its very soft and gentle and trust me Its the best shampoo I ever hit on in my entire life
  2. MACADAMIA HAIR OIL TREATMENT: Again the superb packaging. Its a glass bottle equipped with pump mechanism.Usually one pump is enough for the shoulder length hair as I have. Argan oil adds a delicate fragrance and oil sets so light in hair. It makes my hair so soft and silky . I am super wowed by this oil.In my video I have explained How I wear it for styling and in general . Take a look if you want to know more!!
  3. MACADAMIA DEEP HAIR MASQUE: Its actually a rescue for your drying dead never happy hair.It just quenches them from within and is a treatment in itself. For my hair already used it thrice and still much left for another two uses. Loving it tremendously.
  4. MACADAMIA COMB: the comb is itself infused with the goodness of academia oil. Isn't it seems like something Cleopatra might have used as one of beauty secrets. 

But Finally now secret is out for all of us to have gorgeous shiny hair too!!

BOUGHT: I bought this entire thing from Bath and unwind.

We bought lot of stuff so the entire package was delivered in two separate parcels. First parcel reached us well on time and tracking number was provided so we precisely knew everything about the parcel. Reached well in time.
For the second parcel there was some sort of confusion,For once we left the hope of ever receiving it because the tracking number provided was showing delivered while we never even had a glimpse of its whereabouts. Perplexed!! We reminded them .They attended us ,gave us the new tracking number and we could trace the stuff now and by now for us it fell in the category of late delivery.

I received a written message from my post man on ragged paper in my house letter box..about the parcel lying in the post office.
Reading his message was challenging and I didn't even knew who wrote it:-))

Well as I was waiting for the parcel to arrive I dropped in post office by my guts. There head post master said we were just sending it back. (Alright!! That was me but...)
I stayed did the signing part and then the bomb blasted ...He said collect it only after paying 700 Rs.
It was not about the money..But the question was for what??
No explanation was given ...There was this yellow crumpled paper over the parcel saying pay rs 700 !!

We just assumed it to be customs..Got it retrieved!!

We emailed Bath and Unwind. Reply was prompt and full of concern.But they have some mentions in the shipping to India which we took lightly or believed that nothing will happen to us.

I hope this post will be useful to all of you!!

See u soon with more reviews till then
Stay beautiful

Clinique High Impact mascara

Clinique High Impact mascara

Sorry guys I know I can be irritating at times BECAUSE  by the time I finish my post I usually say that I cannot write the price because that was a gift.

Ha !! well for this one laso I stand by the same old decayed yet true explanation THAT it was a gift!!!!

Everybody in friends and family are aware of my passionate love for beauty makeup and fashion so everybody tries to perk up my gifts by adding something from make up for sure.

Again going with the texture of the topic as such CLINIQUE (Ist) is one of my favorite brand as far as the skincare is concerned.

And for makeup definitely this mascara has raised my level of confidence in this brand.

The mascara I got was one of the five products that came as a gift to me in that typical Clinique floral bag.

HIGH IMPACT(as we go) It is huge impact mascara for sure.

It does not irritate my eyes at all.

It somehow doesn't flake also. Its quiet breathable on eyes and gives good lift to lashes.

I am loving it big time.

Check out How the Wand looks:

Much love

Velvette box February+Review of ALL 3 Boxes

Friday, January 18, 2013


Hey guys

I got this palette as a gift  from Europe.
Catrice is a common brand there.Eye and cheek palette I have is the one from the SAN FRANCISCO COLLECTION launched by CATRICE.

I was so excited to have catrice in my collection.
Finally decided to film an eye makeup video using the palette for my youtube channel !!
The palette

I used this palette to create the look for my video.

It has six wonderful shades for eyes and two cheek blush shades.

Eye shades(below upwards )
                    (left then right)
1. Coit tower very pretty shade.Perfect to use over lid.
2 SFMOMA again for the lid.
3. ALCATRAZ perfect crease colour
4.TRANSAMERICA pearly white colur for inner corners and highlighting.

These shades can be safely used to do day looks and neutral brown looks.

5. Fisherman wharf : This is my favorite shade in the palette. its very greenish bluish shade. Love it!!
6. LoMBARD STREET : It is again very steel like grey colour .

Cheek Shades
1. GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE: It comes out very pretty on cheeks. Pinkinh plumish shade.
2.CABLE CAR: Its entirely new shade orange peachish to make its way to my beauty lab!!

 All the shades have good pigmentation and not very chalky.They have relatively good stay on.

It is supercute and something to die for. Its in a hard box with a flip on kind of loop and a magnetic closure.

I am a proud owner now!!
AND THE LOOK ........

The look
Products shown in this image used to create look may differ slightly because I refilmed the video for the want of good lighting.
I will soon be uploading video on my youtube channel
