  2.

The first one on top of the list is Charlotte Tilbury Covetable lipsticks that is designed exclusively for her high clienteles and by releasing this charitable lipstick tubes, she has taken lipsticks to a level up position and in particularly, I would prefer to purchase Miranda May (in honour of the super model Miranda Kerr) and Electric Poppy (in honour of British supermodel Poppy Delevingne, who is also sister of Cara Delevingne) and secondly, I want to try MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick in which everyone is raving about and I’ve heard that this matte liquid lipstick is so easy to apply and doesn’t budge at all unlike other liquid lipsticks and hence, you could able to coat multiple times with complete peace of mind and lastly, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette, which is one of the product that I’ve been eyeing so long.
  4. Skincare go-to? – I regularly follow two time cleansing routine everyday and I don’t skip it even while I’m on move. Then, I use my luxury toner  to tone my skin and then, I use OZ Naturals HA moisturising serum in the morning and Estee Lauder Night Repair Serum in the evening skincare routine. Finally, I top up with moisturiser and for body, I always trust my Soap&Glory The Righteous Butter and Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Cream  for face and lastly for lips, I love to use my bejewelled luxury Ted Baker cocoa scented lip balm.

MAC Cosmetics

Well, this week has been extremely busy for me with hectic work schedule and to bring a relaxing environment far away from the hustle and bustle, I ended up landing onto the MAC counter and I know you would certainly agree with the fact that how much satisfaction one could able to get by glancing around the MAC counter. It is the place where there is atleast one product that is suitable for everyone’s need. Whether it is a foundation or a concealer or a BB cream or a CC cream or a bunch of makeup brushes or a makeup product- just you name it and they have it.


If you are a beginner to high end beauty products, then trying out products from MAC counter would definitely gives you an unmissable experience as their products are always rated high and you could also able to research for multiple reviews on online as well. Furthermore, for years and years, MAC products have been used extensively by famous people including from makeup artists to top models and from bloggers to beauty lovers and so, quality is a predominant thing in here and that’s why it is named as a trust worthy product.

How does the MAC beauty counter looks like?

If you are a debutant to MAC cosmetics, then you will be blown away with the well organised display of their products and you could easily able to identify the items without having any help as there are separate sections for each of the categories that includes foundations and concealers to one part of the beauty counter where as makeup products to other designated separate areas; plus, particularly, if you are looking for makeup brushes, then you could easily able to spot those gorgeous beauties along the mirrored shelves that are stacked up to excellence.21mar2

MAC Cosmetics

The main reason why I popped into MAC counter was to try out their exquisite foundation as my older one was nearly running out and so immediately after entering into the MAC counter, I was glancing around to see all the various possibilities that I could opt for. Then, just less than a minute, a lovely lady called Debbie has requested if I need any help and I jumped into the offer right away and asked her about what to choose from. Later, she checked my skin tone and asked to sit on the chair that is placed right in front of the mirror where she could flawlessly able to test and try some of the foundations that matches my skin tone.

Test & Try:

First of all, she started with two different foundations and she tried each of them on my face using the splendid foundation brush and finally, she figured out my best match. Hurray! *Happy Dance* I can’t praise enough of the outstanding service that I got from the counter and yes, of course, it is an unmatchable service.

Sample Testing:

Just like icing on the cake, I’ve asked her whether I could able to try the product before making a purchase and without a second thought, she grabbed a small glass pot and squeezed some of the foundation content into the pot. Voila! Finally, I got the sample which I could make it as a trial version to test the results. Last but not least, it is not only the counter alone that look so fabulous but also their foundation too as I’m so glad with the texture, consistency and the sweet smell of the formula. Also, not to forget, it carries a bit more hefty price tag but a small blob is good enough for a single use and hence, a little goes a long way.

Have you ever experienced the amazing service while you are in any of the beauty counter? If so, drop me and share some of your amazing personal experiences with me. Happy Monday all!

Review: Maybelline NewYork The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara.

Maybelline NewYork The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara

Maybelline NewYork The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara

I always love a good quality mascara and from time to time, I vary range of mascaras from drugstore to high end and also, I keep one thing in mind to restore the luxurious branded mascaras for a special occasional use and the gorgeous wallet-friendly mascaras for a very versatile day-to-day use.

Tale Of Mascara:

Long before, the award-winning Eyeko London Black Magic Mascara served my lashes tremendously well for the whole of winter which not only aided to lift my lashes flawlessly well but also, it added a twist of nutritional aspects to my lashes which is in the form of Keratin (for lash growth) and shea butter (for lash moisture intact). Then came the sumptuously designer mascara which is none-other-than Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara that made a grant entry to add into my high end collection (in the middle of January). And with two step further, I just now landed onto the marvellous drugstore companion – Maybelline NewYork The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara.

Drugstore Mascara Hunt:

First of all, let me tell you how it all started. In the middle of February, I was shopping around Superdrug store and while I was carrying a basket full of so many beauty staples right from facial wipes to lip balm and from makeup brush to blush, I spotted this splendid mascara sitting next to the counter aisle that too on offer and immediately, it came right into my basket right away. Voila!

MAybelline NewYork The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara


Having heard so many good reviews about its original version, I think, this time, I made a sensible buy. Look at the packaging! Isn’t it so gorgeous? I absolutely loved the funky colour theme running throughout the packaging which makes the mark of Maybelline NewYork’s 100 years anniversary celebration. Not only it looks so amazing with ravishing colours of blue, red, yellow, black and white but also looks absolutely stunning with the magical patterns of stars and stripes.



Moving along to its functionality, oh my! It has been designed to perfection with so many added features like the tapered shape of the brush, the varied length of the bristles which helps to capture maximum number of lashes in just one stroke and the ascending and descending length of the bristles which assists in sketching the lashes from roots to end. All-in-all, it is very impressive!


  1. Finish off all the eye makeup look before heading onto your lashes.
  2. Using Shu Uemura eyelash curler, curl your lashes effectively well.
  3. Take the mascara wand and apply two or more coats onto your upper and lower lashes by starting from roots to end and more importantly, always remember to make a push and wiggle movement onto the roots of your lashes for maximum volume.
  4. Intensify each stroke by applying the mascara coat both above and below the lashes.
  5. Make the last coat for final touchups so as to get a separate lash look and I’m sure by this time, your lashes will be defined and lifted well too.
  6. Last-but-not-least, this mascara gives a flake-free, smudge-free and clump-free lash look.
  7. Now, your lashes are ready to show off.

Have you ever used this product before and if so, let me know your thoughts on this product and as always, I would love to read them. Furthermore, don’t forget to read my tips on mascara and the link is right here.

Spring Day & Night Lipstick Edit – Featuring Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick.

Revlon super lustrous lipstick

Revlon super lustrous lipstick

To be honest, I am a self proclaimed lipstick lover and why not? It is like magic in a stick which gives an instant oomph to any makeup look and I hope you also agree with me. Plus, with all the transitional changes that is happening right now, I know it is the best time to amp up some of the best lippies that is quintessential to wear for a day and night look. And, in here, I have chosen two of my favourite hues that works ideal to any kind of muted Spring makeup look and we all know, Spring is all about nude makeup look. So, let’s get started.


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick:

Apparently, there is no need for an introduction to Revlon as it is one of the well known drugstore makeup brands and the product range, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick is available in the market in four finished looks that includes matte, pearl, creme and shine which all comes with an array of dazzling vibrant shades that are fabulous and also, fashionable. This incredible range comes with a gorgeous Liquisilk formula that seals colour and softness.


I’m very much impressed with the packaging of the product. Yes, this lipstick bullet comes with a stunning looking black and gold packaging wherein the outer part of the bullet is covered by black and the middle and inner part of the bullet is mostly dominated by the gold detail. Plus, the brand name is calligraphed on the middle part of the bullet remarkably well. Lastly, just like icing on the cake, the top part of the bullet comes as a translucent layer which is very easy to look the actual shade without even opening the top cover of the lipstick. Genius, isn’t it?

Spring Day Lipstick – Champagne On Ice – 205 – Pearl:

Revlon super lustrous lipstick, champagne on ice

For a warm, sunny Spring day, I think Champagne On Ice works brilliantly on a neutral makeup look and the pearl finish completes the whole lip look flawlessly well with an added element of shimmer and soft undertones of coral. Another winning feature is that it is well pigmented and also has a long lasting effect.

Spring Night Lipstick – Blushed – 420 – Pearl:

Revlon super lustrous lipstick, blushed

With a lighter shade dominating the entire daytime look, here comes a super chic shade, Blushed in the shade 420 which takeovers the night with pure elegance. Moreover, by wearing this shade, you could easily feel like a fuller looking lips and the gorgeous richness from the formula is perfect to define a well pouted look.



Moving along to the swatches of the lipstick, you could clearly able to see the opaque, rich pigmented look of the lipstick that comes along with just a slight hint of sparkle to it.

Have you ever tried this product before? If so, let me know your amazing thoughts on this product in the comment section that is below and as always, I would love to read them.
