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. With talk aside, let me jump into the best of 2016 beauty – part 1 and so, roll up your sleeves and stay tuned!

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. Meanwhile, I would sincerely recommend anyone to invest in some good skin care essentials as it is such a game changer.

First of all, let me start with Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant which is such a real multi-tasker that one should have. Whether as a face mask or in-flight moisturiser, this is one miracle product that acts a skin barrier that can be used for all kinds of season.

Top 5 Summer Must-Have essentials.

Amie Naturally Kind Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash

 

Amie, No.7, Ted Baker London, Richard Ward, River Island

In my last post, I’ve shown you a tutorial about how to master a smokey eye look with just 3 products? And, if you have missed it, then ensure yourself not to miss that great post as it explains everything that you need to know about smokey eye. We all know that tomorrow is the officially opening of the grand seasonal summer and a thing to remember always is to get into some beauty basics and with that as an inspiration, herewith, I’ve picked up my top 5 summer must have essentials that includes from skincare to makeup and from haircare to perfume that are all a mixed combo of high end and drugstore products and so, stay tuned to know more about it.

Amie Naturally Kind Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash:

Amie Naturally Kind Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash

For skincare regime, I always stick onto natural products as much as possible as they get  into our skin deeply twice daily and so, skin appropriate products are a must-have essentials for this season and one similar find recently is Amie naturally kind morning clear facial wash and the effective formula of this facial wash works so gentle on my skin as it is loaded up with high quality, naturally derived plant extracts which brings in a perfect harmony by leaving my skin clear, soft and radiant. Some of the great factors includes paraben free, sulphate free and mineral oil free. Lastly, it clears, purifies and moisturises skin all under one versatile finish and anyways, how great is that?

Richard Ward – The Chelsea Collection – Age Proofing Hydrating Treatment:

There is no substitute for beautiful hair – Richard, Award-winning celebrity hairdresser

From skincare, let’s move onto haircare product. As Richard says, of course, there is no other better way to start this summer with a healthy looking shiny hair which is always a plus when it comes to the beauty community and me not in exception either and this baby pink, luxury salon formula that is filled with gorgeous aroma is the one that is quintessential to pamper yourself before heading onto any oncoming summer parties. Besides, you could use this product in two ways: one is for conditioning where you allow it to stand on your hair for 15 minutes and followed with a rinse and the other one is for intense treatment where it is applied onto your hair for 30 minutes and later with a rinse. Most predominantly, by holding an amazing content of the current trending Argan oil, I certainly believe that one can’t go wrong with it.

No.7 Creme Touch Face Powder:

NO.7 Creme Touch Face Powder

Now, it’s time for makeup and with sultry sunny days to come up pretty soon, a compact pressed face powder is a great versatile staple and this coppery packaged compact powder acts as an ideal base to your face where it protects your foundation to say in place and also, sets the whole makeup perfectly without feeling cakey at all. Besides, this time, I’ve picked the shade fair bloom.

Next Paradise Island Eau De Parfum:

River Island Eau De Parfum

Rather than heavier perfumes, nowadays, I’m sticking onto lighter perfumes and fragrance mists and one such particular is the amazing Next paradise island eau de parfum where its aromatic scent drives you straight away to the tropical islands and the stunning packaging answers everything that I’m talking about.

Ted Baker London Body Lotion:

Are you looking for a luxury moisturising body lotion? Then, here it is as the moisturising content of the formula is sweetened with cherry picked florals of violet, vanilla, patchouli and amber. Well, what else could you ask for, isn’t it? Moreover, the diamond studded bottle with duck blue coloured casing that is perfectly finished with a coppery top pump explains all the tiny details of luxe at its elegance. Score!

So, what are your favourite summer essentials that you are up to? And, you could always share the same with me and as always, I would love to read them along.

If you are blessed with baby soft skin, then I guess you really stand up well ahead in the skincare game or otherwise, try to follow some natural skin detox routines like me which could ideally bring some healthy benefits to your skin. Generally, I follow two detox routines that are named as:

Skin Detox By Fitness:

I love to go for walking everyday and if weather doesn’t permit, then I swap to my regular yoga regime. And, I’m a firm believer of fitness routines and it really helps to detox your skin inside and out in a natural way and there is no harm in practicing it regularly. So, what kind of fitness routine do you follow? Is it jogging, trekking, swimming, sports or something else? Yes, it certainly takes some time to show up the results but you will be rewarded and paid off well for sure with the worth of effort that you take.

Skin Detox Drink:

I always start my day with honey and lemon in warm water and recently, I’ve heard that lemon water is good for white part of your eye and hence, why not give it a try then?

LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Yes girls, that’s what I call it as LIP GAME. So, are you already on the lip game? Or, if not, then check out this post on how to make your lips to get step up to the top notch game. Also, with just 3 simple steps, you could unbelievably able to achieve a tender looking supple and soft baby lips that you have never experienced before. Hence, let’s get started.

lipcare

With sleeves rolled up, first of all, let me begin with the basic elements that you need to get a flawless, softened baby lips. Mark my words, this pampering routine is just like icing on the cake before heading onto any kind of lipstick wears. So, come along with me for a lip-i-licious chat.

Lip Scrub:

LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Exfoliation is the first process of prepping up your lips and yet, this process is not just for face and body alone but also, it works very effective onto your lips too and to enhance the process even much better, there is no other lip scrub is better than my ever trusted lip care icon, LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub. So, how does it top up as a quintessential lip scrub than any other? The reason behind is, it is packed with natural ingredients such as caster sugar and jojoba oil where in the caster sugar accomplishes the exfoliation effect and meanwhile, the jojoba oil gives you a tremendous amount of moisture content that is ideal to give you a rejuvenated lips.

DIY Lip Mask:

  • Honey – 1/2 tsp
  • Cooking oil – few drops

My hands always tend to reach the kitchen cabinet as I’m so addicted to the comfortability of the beauty that it gives. As a beauty lover, you must have already known the fact that honey is a natural skin soother and since the consistency of the honey is little thicker, I’m diluting it with few drops of oil for an easier application. FYI: Honey is packed with richness of anti oxidants and hence, it keeps your lips to be healthily balanced all the time.

Lip Balm:

Have you already seen the signs of Spring? Like wonderful blooms arraying in the back garden and the tweets of birds chirping when you wake up early in the morning, isn’t it glorious to stay in this amazing weather forever (I know, it is not possible albeit). Well, there is also other aspect of life which could bring in Spring straight into your beauty wardrobe and one such staple that I’ve discovered on my recent Spring beauty journey is Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in the shade Dynamic (410). Want to know a bit more of it, then stay tuned girls!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in Dynamic 410

To be honest, I’m addicted to dark coloured lipsticks in general but as soon as Spring has shown its true colours, my heart has literally started to swift for seasonal pleasures and one such warm, neutral and mid toned lipstick is this great staple piece. Besides, whether your skin looks like a bronzy goddess as a sun-kissed skin or being yourself glowing as a radiantly illuminant dewy complexion, in either way, I’m sure you could rock this shade indefinitely well.

All-in-all, this muted rose lipstick with warm undertones gives a full coverage and multi-faceted pigments gives you a well-defined and sculpted pout. Moreover, when it comes to its functionality, the texture is super creamy and glides onto your lips flawlessly with a bit of shine finish and the formula is totally light-weight and so easy to apply. Other key features includes high pigmentation, moisture lock as it comes with time-realesed moisture complex, 6 hours of longevity and lastly, it keeps your lips sealed in hydration all throughout the wear. More importantly, the sensation that you feel from the lipstick is smooth, soft and luxuriously comfortable to wear.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in Dynamic

 

I am a great fan of Estee Lauder‘s packaging as they literally nail each time with their splendid elegant details on their products and for me, the first thing to invest in any high end product is to check the quality of the packaging that it comes with and hence, I always try to pay attention to all the tiny details that it carries before falling in love with the product itself.

Talking about the packaging, let me start with the main part of the lipstick case where the metallic navy blue theme runs all throughout the side of the lipstick case but when it comes to the top and bottom squared part of it, it is completely filled up with golden goodness and the embossed details are thrown with brand name to the top and the shade detail to the bottom. Yes girls! – it is certainly a true delight of luxury.

Moving along to the inside of the lipstick, it is purposefully coloured with just gold hue alone and when you try to twist the bottom tube, the glorious lipstick pops up to the top that stands elegantly well. Last but not least, with just one click, the case closes perfectly well and it feels like luxury is in your hands.

  1. Start the procedure with a well cleaned lips.
  2. Using a tooth brush, take off any excess dead skin on your lips.
  3. Use LUSH Bubblegum lip scrub and exfoliate it nicely on your lips and leave it to stand for few minutes.
  4. Now, wipe off any remaining lip scrub on your lips.
  5. Next, apply TED Baker Lip balm on to your lips.
  6. Then, use a neutral shaded lip pencil on your lips and sketch and line your pout perfectly well.
  7. Now, use the above lipstick on your lips and try to reach all corners for a well curvaceous lip look.
  8. Next, blot any excess lipstick in the tissue by pressing your lips.
  9. Then, reapply lipstick again on your lips and in this way, your lipstick might able to stay on your lips for much longer hours.
  10. Now, your Spring inspired lips are ready to show off.

Review: Estee LauderPure Color High Gloss Ultra Brilliance.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy High Gloss Ultra Brilliance

Estee Lauder Pure Color High Gloss Ultra Brilliance

As we already arrived at the second quarter of the year, Spring is finally in the air and this is the best time to reorganise some of the beauty wardrobe that includes changing from an earthy perfume to a light floral warmer perfume and from dramatic eye look to softer peachy eye look and from blush to bronzer and from heavy makeup to natural dewy makeup look. Hence, with so many variations that happens along the different aspects of make look and I think lips acts the same way too as they are not in exception either and yes, this is the season of lip gloss for sure. So, stay tuned to see more of it.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy High Gloss Ultra Brilliance
L-R: Stolen Kisses, Berry Lush and Pink Cloud

Untitled-7

I am a big fan of Estee Lauder’s packaging features as they always try to incorporate an unique gold detail to each of their product range and this time too, they didn’t disappoint either as they literally nailed by calligraphing the brand name with golden detail. While moving along to the actual tube, it comes as a handy squeezable tube wherein you could able to take tiny blob of lip gloss each time; plus, like icing on the cake, the tube is enclosed with an elegant screwable golden top.

Untitled-8

This travel exclusive lip glosses are perfect to store in your hand bag fuss free and the tiniest amount of the content is more than enough for every single use and hence, little goes a long way. Having used Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss before, I know the real value of a lip gloss and also, how it works and ever since then, I got so hooked up with lip glosses and fortunately, as we are heading ahead to more sunny days, I think lip gloss is going to be a super winner and apparently, I’m so intrigued with the shear-y glossiness of the lip gloss and lastly, not to forget, the long lasting sweet candy aroma that lingers in your lips incredibly well.

Lip Gloss Colour Range:

  • Stolen Kisses – gorgeous pink tint
  • Berry Lush – warm berry shade
  • Pink Cloud – champagne like hue

  1. Start the procedure with a well cleaned lips.
  2. Use your tooth brush to remove any dead skin.
  3. Prep your lips with LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub (as it exfoliates your lips unbelievably good as it contains the content of cater sugar and jojoba oil).
  4. Use your favourite lip balm to soothe and moisturise your lips (My current favourite is Ted Baker Cocoa scented Lip Balm).
  5. Now, squeeze a small amount of lip gloss in your finger and then, apply it evenly to your top lip first and then to your bottom lip.
  6. Now, your lips are ready to show off.

Why did you start blogging? – Before starting a blog myself, I was a regular reader of some of the well-known blogs and the effort that they put in each of the post makes me to inspire a lot and finally, I got hooked up and decided to give it a go and I’m extremely glad that I made the right decision at the right time.
  2. Favourite Lipstick?Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lipstick in the shade Flame (03) is my current favourite and I have started using this Hollywood style glam red lipstick since Valentine’s day and I’m so intrigued with the fuller looking plumper lips that it gives as it is infused with Volulip, a new ultra plumping agent.
  3. Top three things on your bucket list? – It is a very tricky question but still, I would love to shortlist some of my bucket list items to three. 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.
  5. Favourite drugstore brand? – I love Maybelline NewYork, L’oreal Paris and Rimmel London and some of my favourite picks are Maybelline NewYork The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara, L’Oreal False Lash Superstar Mascara and Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner.
  6. Favourite high end brand? – Estee Lauder and Elizabeth Arden are my favourite high end brands and some of my cherry picked items from their range are my travel friendly Estee Lauder Pure Colour Eyeshadow palette and Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers perfume.
  7. Natural or smokey eye? – For workwear, I always choose natural eye but for any other special occasion, I’ll go for a flawless smokey eye.
  8. Brushes or beauty blender? – I prefer to use brush.
  9. Favourite highlighter?Bourjois Paris Bronzing and Illuminator duo and Soap&Glory Solar Powder.

Looks – that’s all speak! This solo phrase is universally popular among the beauty community and I am not in exception either and hence, to achieve this goal, I always maintain a strict relation with my skincare routine and no matter how busy I am and wherever I am but still, I follow my skincare routine religiously twice a day and one of my beauty hits on the skincare line is Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and you could able to see its full review right here.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lipstick

I always love Elizabeth Arden beauty products and especially, the gorgeous, flattering, red lipstick from Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lipstick made my Valentine’s Day multi times more special; plus, I can’t rave enough of the elegancy it brings onto my lips as it feels so light, creamy, buttery and well pigmented too. Besides, what else would you ask for a date night, isn’t it?

As you’ve guessed, yes, it is one more lip product again but this time, it is a lip care product and I can’t leave this miniature, cute, bejewelled, cocoa-scented lip balm (you feel like palmer’s cocoa butter is applied onto your lips – how cool it is!) which is from the luxury designer brand, Ted Baker. Look at the design! Isn’t it one beautiful gem in the world? Absolutely! Well, not only it looks utterly chic but also, it works exemplarily well. Notably, even though, nothing could able to replace my Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant as it is like a God’s sent gift to me but still, I think this lip balm is a great alternative too.

L'occitane, L'occitane En Provence, L'occitane Repairing Shampoo

In February, my hair was in a serious need of TLC and this great Repairing Shampoo, an award-winning product from L’occitane, which I have mentioned several times before came a super hero to save my dull, dry hair and completely transformed my hair to a super shiny and silky soft hair.

My hair literally loved this product and when I try to apply this trust-worthy, heat protectant, V05 Plump It Up Weightless Mousse onto my hair, it kept my straightened hair as healthy and strong.

Dolce&Gabbana is one of my favourite designer brands and this perfumed body lotion smells unmatchably gorgeous and also, I get so many compliments when I wear for any special occasion and so, I can certainly say that once you try it, then you can’t live without it as it is so addictive.

Oh gosh! This perfume, Caritier Baiser Vole Lys Rose smells amazing and the gorgeous aroma from the pink lilies is quintessential to refresh your body any time of the day and from the picture, you can notice that is a sample size container but I’ve received four of these bottles as a complimentary gift which I’m using it liberally for quite a long, long time. So, if you want to see its complete review, then click in right here.

Khaki nail colour was dominated on my nails all throughout February and I should say, it rocked like any other.

Have you used any of these products before and if so, let me know your personal thoughts about these products. Also, you could drop me with some of your favourite beauty hits that you are obsessed with lately. Apparently, I can’t wait to read your views.
