Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Review

Hey Friends,

I am back with another exciting review of Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Eyeliner!

I must say, its one of the reviews I have been wanting to post in a while but wanted to use the product enough to be able to share my opinion on it.

PhotoGrid_1472103371559

Lets begin with some facts first, this is a gel eyeliner from Lakme and i have it in the shade ‘Tempting Teal’. This was one of the most widely used product during the Lakme fashion week and claims to be smudgeproof and waterproof. You get 2.3 g of the product and retails at Rs.800. However, I had ordered mine from Nykaa website and got some it at discounted price of around Rs. 650. There are more shades in this line as well.

The packaging is really cute like that of a nail polish bottle and has a small liner brush attached on the top of the bottle. You need to pull out the applicator brush to use it.

Teal is my favourite color and I have been looking for a gel liner in teal for a very long time, I use the Chambor eyeliner pencil in teal at the moment and love it!! but being a gel liner fan, I was on look out for teal shade in gel liner. Looking at some gorgeous pictures of Tempting Teal gel eyeliner used on models during the Lakme Fashion week, I was awestruck! I had to get it…but this shade was always very difficult to find. Finally, I got it in stock on Nykaa

When I received the package, I was super excited! I open the package and got dejected!! That was because the color of the gel liner was sky blue in color!! and I was so sure that maybe I was sent some incorrect color. I checked the name of the package and it read ‘Tempting Teal’! I was like how can a sky blue color be called TEAL!

Finally, I picked some of the liner to swatch and it swatched TEAL!! OMG…I can’t express my relief and happiness! The reason of sharing this story with you is purely to confirm that though the liner in the bottle looks light blue in color…it swatches dark teal!!

The color is gorgeous!! totally true to its claim – smudgeproof and waterproof. Glides on like butter and stayed all day long. Though, if you look closely, it has the tiniest bit of sparkle particles to it. But that is what it gives the rich look. The sparkle particles are so small that you may not even notice them unless looked closely. So, definitely wearable color during day and in office.

Given the good experience with this product..I am really tempted to order other shades from this line. Its a bit expensive than other gel eyeliners in the market from Maybelline or Loreal..but I would say given the color range and the long staying power, its worth the money. And a little bottle goes a long way!

If you have tried any other shades from this line, let  me know your experiences too. Hope this review is helpful to you!

Patanjali Activated Carbon Facewash Review

Hi All,

Happy Independence Day to all my Indian friends!!

As promised, I am back with another Patanjali product review and this time around it is the Activated Carbon facewash.

PhotoGrid_1469112911179

Let me begin by saying that I have waited enough to post this review as I wanted to be sure about how I feel about this product after using it over 2 weeks.

This is the only black packaging facewash from Patanjali’s range. You get 60gm of product for Rs.60/- which i think is a decent price to begin with.

It is metallic grey in colour and smells different and not like other herbal facewash’s from Patanjali. It smells a bit flowery I think, but definitely not herbal or ayurvedic. Although this one too, is herbal, it smells different.

The package claims that it is made from natural extracts of Neem, Aloevera & Turmeric which helps cleanse gently, nourishes and revitalize the skin tissues to make complexion fresh, smooth and beautiful.The package also mentions that this has activated carbon + Vitamin E and Vitamin A.

According to me, this is a great product and delivers to the claim. Your skin will definitely feel cleaner after use. I also feel, the activated carbon does a good job at deep cleaning the pores and softens the white heads/black heads that you may have around your nose or chin. Post facewash, you will be able to extract them with your towel with minimum pressure. Obviously, they are not going to go off completely, but i am saying they are easier to remove.

An added advantage is the lack of herbal smell. Not many people like the typical neem or aloevera smell that most herbal products carry. This one smells like any other non-herbal facewash.

I have got the males in my family to try this product and they have liked it too. I am told it is similar to the other male specific activated carbon facewashes available in the market from Nivea, Garnier and others, however, much cheaper than them. So, thats definitely a plus.

I don’t really have anything bad to talk about this product as such. I have liked it. I feel it cleans my pores deeply. I will definitely repurchase it given that it is a good substitute to other activated carbon facewashes available in the market today but at a cheaper price.

I have used the Neem & Aloevera facewash too from Patanjali (you can view that review here –>Patanjali Products Review

I have also shared the list of all Patanjali products and their prices on my blog. You can view it here –> List of all Patanjali Products & their prices

I will be sharing a comparision between these 2 facewashes from Patanjali soon and which one to buy!

Here are the best Makeup looks from the 2016 Met Gala event. I have selected a few based on the stark difference in style and colour.

Most of these are subtle and easily wearable. They absolutely look gorgeous and are worth drawing inspiration from.  From nude lips to bold ones and sleek hair, you have it all here!
One thing to notice among all pics below is the eye makeup!  Very stylish and wearable.  My personal favourite eye makeup is the smudgy eyes of SJP!! She nails it perfectly every single time! !
