No! to sulphates and parabens. Having completed 2 years of blogging, it totally transformed my way of thinking about beauty and each day has been such a learning curve from blogging and also, from the great friendly bloggers too and so, on this occasion, I want to thank all supporting bloggers who gave me tremendous strength to keep going with the good work.

Skin care is the most important ritual that I followed religiously twice a day all throughout the year non-stop and it really paid off well leaving my skin extremely supple and having a healthily balanced skin at the same time.

My 6 Comeback Beauty Heroes.

15jan161

As we are all residing in the mid of January, I think this is the right time to rewind back some of the beauty products that completely transformed the definition of beauty and also served me as a beauty hero in which some of them will be carried forward to the existing collection of beauty wardrobe. Apparently, what a bang on year was 2015! Sensational! In terms of beauty that includes from skincare to makeup, a few favourites of mine were reigning the whole year of 2015 beauty regime as a true champion and even though, there are lots to discuss about and get appreciated yet here, I have cherry picked 6 of those items which I like the most among all others.

15jan162

Anyways, who can able to resist the gorgeous pigmented and shimmeriness of the eyeshadow that exists in just Mac eye shadows alone that are beauty marked as velvet. Besides, what do you expect from this product? Well, it has a dense texture that is easy to build and bendable to give you a evenly covered look and there is no doubt that it could give you an instant long-lasting glam look with just a tiny amount of the content and so, it gives you a long mileage as well. So, if you are looking for an eyeshadow that is quintessential for an evening wear, then this purple eyeshadow is the right choice as it glam up your eyes right away.

 

15jan163

So, what does this stunning Eyeko London Black Magic Mascara claim to do? Well, this mascara works extremely well for a long lasting wear and the main properties of it includes: lengthens lashes, separates and curls without clumping, creates drama with extreme lash volume and projects your lashes with intense carbon black that are water resistant too. Additionally, its unique formula is enriched with special key ingredients like keratin and shea butter that are ideal to aid as a lash care and hence, it keeps your lashes hydrating and also the natural conditioners in the formula provides a high percentage of smudge proof and flake proof coverage as well.

15jan164

Another fantastic eye makeup product that is hard to resist is Lancome Ombre Hypnose mono eye shadow in the shade Lagon secret wherein the tint comes as robin blue. In further, this eye shadow looks as luminous and silky and does the job brilliantly well for a sophisticated and vibrant look and application wise, it is so simple to use and what you all need to do is, just apply the eye shadow all over the eyelids and the creamy, super soft texture of the eye shadow stays on your lids for a long lasting effect or otherwise, if you want to have a bit more play, then blend and build well to get an intense warm look.

15jan167

One more beauty product that defines your eyes fabulously beautiful is  2-in-1 Dior addict Fluid Shadow and this light weight fluid shadow is designed explicitly for a dual purpose note of eye shadow and eyeliner. While moving along to its texture, it is thin and watery that is ideal to give you an enamel finish flawlessly. Plus, the bristles on the brush are designed in such a way to give you a smooth and even application each time you stroke it on your eyes. Importantly, the secret to get a precise look is just stick onto one stroke application using the brush and don’t try to budge or blend either with your finger or a brush as the fluid dries up quickly but I should say that the finished look is long lasting(I mean it a lot) and doesn’t fade at all. I know it is tricky to use but the completed look appears to be pure elegance.

15jan165

Now, let’s move onto lipstick. Apparently, if you are looking for a luscious red lips like Marilyn Monroe, then this bold, bright red lipstick from Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme in the shade Love that red is the right choice for you as it gives a signature statement red lips with an added value of gorgeous opaqueness. Moreover, the lipstick is well pigmented and super hydrating and the texture is quintessentially light weight and very versatile to use.

15jan166

Multi-tasker! That is a perfect definition to call this Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant because it protects and stays onto my skin just as a second skin. In conclusion, it acts as a glove to my skin and it hydrates and moisturises my skin all day long; plus, it protects my skin against the extreme dryness and wind chapped skin conditions.

Well, let me know your beauty heroes that you’ve already used in 2015 and still like to carry along to the current year too. And, As always, I would love to see your fantastic thoughts and views into the comment section that is right below.

Happy Weekend!

2015 Beauty Edit.

It is nearly end of the year and tomorrow is officially 2016 and I know there is no other better way to put forth all those gorgeous beauty goodies into a beauty edit that I have been embracing all throughout the year. Besides, 2015 has been a remarkable year for me when it is related to beauty routine as I have been experimenting with various range of beauty products and finally, I’m selecting couple of them to showcase in front of you and hence, let’s see what are the cult beauty  favourites that I have been celebrating in my beauty regime all year long.

Skincare:

Obviously, skincare is one of those foremost beauty essentials that I have been very picky and splurging on as I’m aware that spending each penny onto skincare is an absolute must as it is going to serve as a second skin all day long. So, to start with, I would say that OZ Naturals HA Moisturising Serum is one of the best found in 2015 as I have been using it every day in my regular skincare routine and this serum is one of the beauty secrets to keep my skin supple and moist all day long. Then, Olay Essentials  Complete Care Day Cream is another great product that I can’t skip as it keeps my face hydrated and moisturised all throughout the day. Next, my winter skin saviour is none-other-than, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant as this wonder cream can instantly transforms my dry winter skin to super soft tender skin. Next, while moving onto hands, another intense moisturising cream that can withstand winter chill weather conditions is Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Hand Treatment. Lastly, I absolutely adore my lip protectant as it assists me more than a lip balm which I’m proud enough to name it as Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15 and also, the added factor of SPF is much needed for all types of weather norms including rain, hot or cold.

Body Butters:

Firstly, I love body butters as they leave my skin silky satin soft and two of my heart-warming favourites are Soap&Glory The Righteous Butter and Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E.

Haircare:

Haircare is a must-have beauty essential that any beauty lover needs and I always head onto Kerastraight Rescue Creme when my hair needs a bit of TLC as it recovers my dry hair immediately and replenishes my hair back to normal and the other interesting hair product that I use is Matrix Biolage Voluma Therapie Full Lift Volumnising Conditioner as this product gives a deep conditioning statement to my hair and it also lifts my hair with a fluffy volumnising effect.

Nails:

Ciate London is definitely a newly found nail product of the year and moreover, I’m a great fan of Olivia Palermo and I’ve been completely adorning my nails with Ciate London Cha Cha Cha for the whole of summer months.

Makeup:

As a beauty addict,  we all know mascara has the shortest lifespan among all other beauty staples and that’s why I’ve been swapping mascara for every 4 months and three of the best that I want to mention here are Burberry Mascara In Midnight Black, Eyeko London Black Magic Mascara and Lancome Hypnose Mascara Volume. Next, the nude chic lipstick that I’ve been wearing it for millions of times is the mighty creamy lipstick, Lancome L’absolu Rouge Rose Nu. Well, when it comes to eyeshadow, I always get inspiration from the Parisian look and that’s why I mostly opted for two divine products that includes Lancome eyeshadow in the shade robin blue and MAC Fard A Paupieres. Lastly, the recent amazing innovation of Dior that has taken beauty to next level is Dior Addict Fluid Shadow in which case it can be applied either as an eyeshadow or as an eyeliner.

Perfume:

Besides all, I love perfumes and they are my all-time beauty assets that I can’t deny at all and I always prefer to have a range of perfumes lying on my dressing table and some of the key aromatherapy cult beauties are:

5aug151

What a busy month it was in July and that too, it went so quickly. Plus, the whole month was full of excitement with the discovery of new beauty products in line along with the ever-loving embracement of favourite products as well. Moreover, the highlighting part is that money was spent wisely on all the beauty products that ranged from skincare to haircare and from eyewear to nail lacquers. Besides too, I’ve learnt some ideal pocket friendly tips through various streams of offers and bargains that prevailed during the month of July. Hence, let’s get started deep into it…

Skincare:

Now, I can able to feel a complete transformation of my skincare routine like I am getting more leaned towards the fact of choosing quality over to quantity and oh boy! I should say, I could also see a considerable difference in my skin as my skin looks more moisturised, hydrated and healthier than before.

The first product to put forth is OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Moisturising Serum*. If you are just like me, you might have known the current trend of beauty products from East is getting popular than ever before and especially, when it comes to Korean beauty, one can’t deny the essence of using Hyaluronic acid serum in their daily skincare routine and this moisturising serum in particular is well known for keep your skin moisturised and hydrated throughout the busy work day and also, it is such a life saver.

When to comes to skincare, I don’t mind to put some extra pennies from my purse to buy some quality beauty component and especially, I can’t even think of a day without using this gorgeous daily moisturising day cream under my daily makeup routine that is none-other-than Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Cream and also, it has an amazing UV protection factor of SPF 15 in their content too.

For years and years, the luxury cosmetic giant, Elizabeth Arden produces a whole range of beauty products that are delivering quality beauty essentials to millions of customers around the world and one among their best products, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturising Hand Treatment takes a complete control and keep my hands replenished and rejuvenated all day long.

Another skincare cream that is unavoidable is, Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter and it just works as the name says since it has a texture like butter and keeps my body moisturised as a second skin with a layer of last longing sensational scent on my body throughout the day.

Haircare:

This is the section where I’ve found new discoveries on the beauty side and there are certainly couple of products that I certainly need to mention about right here. Let me introduce my first favourite haircare must-haves that is Garnier Ultimate Blends Conditioner – Honey Treasures. This product is so good and one should definitely have it a go as it is very affordable, value-for-money, paraben free and also a source of natural ingredients like honey, royal jelly and propolis. Furthermore, it is like a life saviour if you had a terrible bad hair day and it acts like an angel to your hair and you could also see visible results even after first few washes.

Next product is, Matrix Biolage Voluma Therapie Full-Lift Volumnising Conditioner. If you’ve used this product on your hair, your hair will look like that you have been to a hair spa as it gives a nice voluminising lift to your hair and also, it gives an instant, silky smooth conditioning to your hair straight away.

Another interesting product to introduce right now is Kerastraight Rescue Creme and this works brilliantly on a dry frizzed damaged hair where your hair needs an immediate effect of TLC and also, even after few days of application, you could able to see an enhancing dramatic results to your hair right away.

Makeup: 

Now, as we are just residing in summer months, getting a waterproof eyeliner is absolutely a must and this product, L’Oreal Paris Waterproof Super Liner Black Lacquer works brilliant on a hot and humid sunny day. Plus, the application is so simple and the pointed tip is so quintessential to draw varied lines of thin and thick streaks of fine lines of eyeliner to your eyes.

Nail Lacquers:

I have tried so many nail varnishes last month and this time, I want to share with you about the latest discovery of Barry M Speedy Quick Dry nail enamels. Besides, the recent purchase of purple and coral shimmer worked magic onto my nails.

So, that’s all about the latest additions and new discoveries of beauty range.
