I love roses! To me, Rose is the sign of love and joy… emotion and desire….innocence and weetness, admiration and appreciation…. elegance and grace! And I am Feelin’ ROSY!!

…And for this all credit goes to Maybelline Color Sensational Feelin’ Rosy Lip Stain !!

What is Lip Stain : Lip stain is a cosmetic product which is designed to stain the lips with long-lasting color which will resist wear. Unlike lipstick, it does not contain wax.Lip stain may come in a bottle with an applicator which is used to brush the stain onto the lips, and it can also come in a small jar, with users applying the stain with a finger or a cosmetic brush.

According to Maybelline :

A fresh new sensation in color:
• Sheer wash of color from water-based pigments
• Fresh, barely-there feel from vitamin-enriched berry nectar

In Action :

· This is a felt tip marker. It was not coming out when I first tried but as soon as I pushed a bit too hard there was a click and the color started coming out. 

· Since it is a marker, so if you store this standing with the pen tip downwards, then it will never gets dry. 

· Really a rosy shade. I want to be look like I’ve just rubbed a bunch of rose petals on my lips and that’s the exact shade which I get from this. 

· This shade can be flattering for warm skin tone people. 

· I don’t like to reapply my lippie very often and that is the reason I love this lip stain very much. Staying power is really long lasting (easily 6-7 hrs

· Even this is pretty much waterproof when eating or drinking 

· I was suffering from chapped lip and this lip stain tends to linger on those chapped areas of my lips, so if you have a soft smooth lip then only go for it. 

· Put your favorite lip balm underneath. This will give extra shine to your lip. 

· Fragrance is awesome just like cherry or raspberry. 

· This 0.1 fl Oz lip stain is originally priced as $7.49 but I got it from Walmart at $5.50

Verdict: If you’re looking for an inexpensive lip stain then this is the one The formula seems to be very light weight and the pigmentation is just right. This is sensational truly ! 

I am in love with lip stain and can’t wait to try out some other brands ! What about you ?

Hi everybody, how’ve you been? Hope you all are doing well <3

Winter is here! And for that Body lotion is must have for all of us. So, today I am doing a quick review of my favorite Lotus Herbals Almond Nourish Daily Nourishing Body Lotion (INR 225 for 300 ml). 

The First Look: This is a nourishing moisturizer enriched with Almond oil which is a rich source of Vitamin E and improves complexion and retains glow, delays ageing process, relieves dry and itching skin .The product claimed that it supplies your normal to combination skin skin vital nourishment, skin looks supple, healthy and radiant.

How to apply: Apply liberally all over the body, ideally after a shower or bath on damp skin for best skin softening, sealing in the moisture. Focus on dry or stressed areas such as elbows, heels and knees. Can be used any time your skin is feeling particularly parched and dry.

In Action:     
  • Consistency is thick and smell is pretty good.
  • Leaves skin hydrated for all day, even in winter also.
  • My skin became natural in winter and this body lotion doesn't make me sticky.
  •  The packaging is also very nice with a pump dispenser which will make sure that you will get that much quantity only which you want.
  •    SPF 20 is the best part.and I would definitely consider using it during the day time.
  •   Titanim Dioxide and Octyle Methoxy Cinnamate (Sunscreen) iseEffective sun protectors which prevents skin tan also
  • Pricing is also decent for the quantity they are offering.
  •   But, but, but it contains Paraben.
  • Easily available but only in India.   

Verdict: I loved this body lotion for normal to combination skin.Recommend this especially for winter season. This lotion gives me the perfect moisturization and leaves my skin soft with a very nice smell all day long. I would give this product 4.5 out of 5 stars.

By the way, what is your favorite body lotion in winter ?

Loatsa love,

Hello everybody!

Let's meet Helena from Julep.Oops, Helena is the nail color which I am wearing today!If u mix this beautiful ultra-saturated fuchsia nail color with the star nail decoration followed by a fast dry top coat from Julen, the the combo simply rocks!!

Aren't they both stunning and vibrant? Each nail color ( i mean Helena and Top coat) costs 14 $, but I got this combo pack and also a Julep Pomegranate Body Cream  from  http://www.julep.com/  at 20 $.Great deal it was!! :D
