Lotus Pure Stay Matte Lipsticks in 415 Cherry on top

Winter is a time to flaunt all your wollens, deep plums, berry n reds.Cherry on top is a beautiful berry red that looks super on all the warm colours. It has a gud staying powrr for over 6 hours after which it fades leaving behind a just bitten tint on my lips.

I love the sleek packaging, the gorgeous colour and staying power, the only con I see is that its super dry so exfoliate your lips n apply a lip balm before using this beauty.

Priced at Rs.495 for 4.2g product is not too expensive for this lovely colour. Being herbal n enriched with bil berry extract, jojoba oil, vit E with SPF 20 is worth the outlay.

My Haul

I buy stuff almost everyday... literally! Am also always on da look out for different things, makeup being my most favourite thing. I was kinda bored waiting looking at the same stuff over n over again at the cosmetic counters so I turned my gaze to a brand I've ignored due to their very unfriendly SA's, Lotus Herbals. The products I've purchased were their pure stay blushes but as luck mite have it I chanced to meet a very enthu SA n she did the best thing in the world of me at that moment.... she offered me a chair! What! I had been shopping for over 4 hours with an injured knee,Ji was sold :)

Other then being super sweet she was also really good with her product knowledge n ended up selling me this :D

I got buy one get 1 free lotus pure stay blush n a long wear lip liner free with my pure stay lipstick plus a super cute pouch :D smiling ear to ear...no matter how much stuff we buy we still love our free bees dont we :)

Njoy your weekend and the winter chill, c ya

Jergens Age Defying Multi-Vitamin Lotion

Winters are here and its time to get out those colourful wollens, warm jackets, trendy mufflers and stylish boots :) but along with winter comes few skin problems too, dry skin, chapped lips, cracked heels etc. We all face different problems as per out age, health, diet and skin type. My grandpa who is 99yrs was facing extremly dry skin problem that was worsening, he hates oils or greasy stuff so that was outta question. He regularly uses Keri lotion but since that was unavailable in the market I was told to look for an apt option for him. 

Hez very specific about his requirement and after being disappointed by all the array of creams, lotions n potions by the entire family I took the onus of finding the perfect body lotion for him.

After testing several creams on myself I zeroed down on this, Jergens Age Defying Lotion. I realized not only did his skin need a quick absorbing moisture burst but also a lotion that could renew skin cells and the keep the ones present hydrated.

Since hez not allergic to the above ingredients I was a sure this will work and it did. In 3 days he told me his itching and dryness had reduced by 60% and it was exactly what he wanned. It keeps his skin hydrated throughout da day, it's a lil greasy at the onset but in few minutes it vanishes into the skin.

Comes in a pump dispenser and Priced at Rs.480/- for 496ml is a good product for aging skin. Price may vary.

Chalo I'll be off for a nice steaming ginger tea, take care and have an awesome day ahead.

Lotsa Love

Holiday In GOA - Part I

Hiya fellas,
Had a lovely Wednesday n was jumping with joy when I got back to my abode in Goa. Due to net connectivity getting in touch with you all is a little difficult but will try n keep you all posted. coming to the reason of my excitement besides the lovely beaches, food n the fact that am on a holiday was this...:)

Two aweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesome bags gifted by my husband, A white n gold Miu Miu bag and.....

A reddish brown Michel Kors handbag.....ahhhhhhhhh OMG OMG OMG is all that I kept saying all the way back ...:) seriously cant stop smiling :):):):):):):):):):)....

Now that I've finally got my nerves in check here are the few other things I got yesterday from Anjuna market, it's also called as wednesday market since it's open only on wednesdays. It's got all typical goan signature stuff, colourful clothing, beads, bracelets, cloth bags or jholas etc. This is what I picked up from there...
A two colour blue neckpiece..

A cute silver bracelet...

And a colourful beaded bracelet, loved this :)

Anjuna Market/ Wednesday Market
  1. This market is open on Wednesdays till 6pm, so make sure you go early.
  2. Four wheelers have to be parked outside, so find a good safe spot for your vehicle on either side of the road.
  3. The prices are quoted for foreign tourists and so will sound totally absurd, bargain hard, like for example the above all three, neck-piece n bracelets have cost me less than Rs.300/- 
  4. Take care of your belongings.
  5. You can enjoy the Anjuna beach view after your shopping, due to corals it's a beautiful place for good clicks.
Off for more site seeing, take care n have a gr8 day.

GOA Travel Checklist

Hello Folks,
Goa is a has a hot n humid climate so the two most important problems tourists face are sunburn and dehydration. Generally the tourist season starts from mid of October, after rains. Below is a checklist of few things that one must carry on a Goa trip.

  1. Sunscreen Lotion with 60+ spf. It should be waterproof and sweatproof coz generally due to heavy perspiration  when we wipe our skin the screen too tends to come off leaving the skin vunerable to the sunrays.
  2. A bottle of water n if possible dissolve a packet of Electral in it, it will help to balance the loss of salt and keep you hydrated.
  3. A hydrating facial spray that you can spray when skin feels dry or after extreme exposure to sun.
  4. A lip balm stick, to protect the lips from flaking due to exposure to heat.
  5. Peanuts or any nuts for hunger pangs while site seeing.
  6. Loose cotton clothing, people generally prefer to wear short clothes and spaghetti  tops but this in turn exposes your skin to the harsh sunrays, a days for fun can result into a severely tanned skin, if you choose to wear such clothing make sure to apply loades of sunscreen liberally to your exposed skin.
  7. A hat or cap is very essential to protect your head to avoid sunstroke, headache or maigrain.
  8. A pair of dark sunglasses.
  9. Goa Street Map, this will show you the details of various markets, temples, churches, museums, supermarkets and hotels.
  10. Do a pre booking for your stay in hotels to avoid disappointment, inconvenience  and also avail the best rates and discounts during the peak season.

Plan your trip so you can make the most outta it, enjoy yourself and have a blast :D

Lotsa Love
Priya :)

Max Factor Flawless Perfection Blush, 223 Natural Glow

Hiya Friends,
Will be reviewing a very pretty blush from Max Factor, Flawless Perfection Blush in 223 Natural Glow.

It mite look like a peachy pink shade in the pics but it's a Mauvish Pink Shade, gives medium to sheer colour and so looks very natural. I had to load my blush brush with colour for it to show in the below pics. True to it's name it gives a very natural looking colour to the cheeks.

Comes in a travel friendly see through plastic casing with a tiny brush that's not very useful. Excellent blush for beginners since no matter how much quantity you use, it's not gonna look over done or gaudy. Dose not irritate the skin and stays for 4+ Hrs on my skin.

Priced at Rs. 580/- for 5.5g of product is a good buy.
