Fall-Winter 2011-12 Makeup Trends !

Winter is finally here... :)
I for one, love winters - as long as you don't ask me to turn up early in the morning! I love the stylish jackets, the cozy mufflers, the unlimited hot cuppas I can enjoy, I love how the winter makes my skin less oily and more manageable! :D
The best part is now you can indulge in makeup without worrying about the sweat and grime!

Here are some of the things which are hot for fall-winter makeup trends!

  • Dark/Vampy Lips  
 Dig out your purple and burgundy lipsticks girls, its the time to flaunt dark, vampy lips! Yeah... winter is the time for darker colours like berry, purple, Bordeaux & maroon to take the centrestage.
Afraid of wearing it full-on?? Try wearing it as a stain and layering gloss on top of it !

Sweep away the nightmares with Estee lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover - Review!

Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

I got this as a part of a set a couple of months back which was recently on scheme in US.
I was out of makeup remover so this is the one I started using first! :P As all of you makeup-istas already know - One should always remove all makeup before going to sleep or you can have nightmares NEXT morning !(Break-outs or even worse!).
It is in GWP packaging of 30ml, which will last me for quite some time as only a small quantity is needed for removing my eye makeup. The whole set is as pictured below.  It includes two pure colour lipsticks (Nectarine, Boise de rose), Splash away foaming cleanser, Double wear zero-smudge lengthening mascara, Perfectionist CP+ wrinkle lifting serum + a spacious tote bag! I got this set from Ebay when I got a Rs.500/ off coupon on any purchase above 2000/-(Global easy buy) so it cost me about Rs 1650/ for the whole set.Not a bad deal eh! :D
(BTW Rs.1650/ would get me ONLY 1 Estee Lauder Lipstick in India!). I wonder when these brands would launch such gwp sets in India!

I will review other items in some time...
Estee Lauder set

What does the company Say:
This gentle, lightweight formula works quickly and gently to remove powder eyeshadow and other eye makeup.

Sweeps away without leaving any oily residue—so you can reapply eye makeup immediately after use.

Oil-free formula won't damage delicate skin.

  • Oil-free
  • Dermatologist-tested

Order some Colour for your cheeks from Colorbar !

Colorbar Blushes - Peachy Rose & Cosmic Rose

I have a confession to make.....
I was a blush-virgin for almost until I got married..... and then
I used to have just one blush after my wedding :-O (which I had bought just prior to my wedding!)
and then .....
When I stumbled upon some pretty blushes like Physicians formula blush and Lakme earth Rose trio ….
I knew I was missing something…. & now I have a whole bunch of them…. In all shapes and colours!

One of the most frequently used, out of all of them, are the colorbar blushes…. :)

Colorbar blushes are available in many shades from shimmery to matte finishes.

The shades I am reviewing today are Peachy Rose and Cosmic Rose.
Peachy Rose is a coral-peach colour with shimmer and Cosmic Rose is a matte mauve blush.

Price- Rs.250 /-

Quantity- 6 g

What does the company Say:

Available in five shades, Plum Brown, Cosmic Rose, Fuchsia, Peachy Rose and Just Earth, the Blusher accentuates the cheek area giving a glow to the face. This talc free, silky powder contains a moisture balance formula that is easy to blend and keeps the skin smooth, hydrated and nourished for soft cheeks with just the right hint of color.

Black or White?! Ponds Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam

Ponds Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam


Quantity- 50g

What does the company Say:
Ponds reveals its little black beauty secret with its new Pure White facial foam! It has the technology of activated carbon which attracts the deep seated 'black' dirt caused by impurities, oil and makeup to reveal the pure white you!
It is the first of its kind to be formulated with activated carbon which works with "black attracts black" . Carbon , when heated or "activated" becomes 8x porous ; hence increasing its ability to detoxify and gently exfoliate dead skin cells while retaining the needed moisture.

Give you feet some Love this winter with Oriflame overnight moisturizing avocado foot cream!

Oriflame Overnight moisturizing Foot Cream with Avocado & Aloe-vera!

Price- Rs.229/-

Quantity- 75ml

What does the company Say:
Care for your feet while you sleep with this complete treatment to condition, soothe and freshen feet with avocado extract and active moisturisers. Use overnight with or without socks for softer feet.

New Version
The older version

  • I have been using this for a long time(you can see my old tube above - almost finished there! Bought my new tube when it was on offer!).... though I get lazy in summers - in winters its a MUST! It really makes a lot of difference in just 1-2 nights only. I just apply it liberally on my feet, wear my socks and go to sleep- overnight my feet become noticeably softer and smoother. I have tried the other foot-creams from Oriflame - but this one gives the best results!
  • I don't use anything  on my feet in the daytime as they tend to sweat with creams... so this nightly treatment is a life-saver.
  • It is decently priced for this quantity.
  •  Only available through oriflame consultants!
The Last Word:

M.I.A - A Busy Schedule & Some Website Trouble!

Hey guys,

I was  really busy few days back with work and deadlines... When I finally came back to my my utter horror it was mysteriously marked "Attack page!". Seems like some nasties were playing up... and not just with my site!

My fellow blogger "Indyabeauty" was also attacked similarly...

However, Many frantic work-hours later I was able to get my site back to its normal... non-attacking, friendly self!

I hope all of you are doing good .... with the holidays coming up... I only want the best of things to happen now!

Here's wishing the very best to all of my pals!!
