Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips

Hello Galz!!
After seeing ad of Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips so many times, I decided to try it. Actually I like it's ad where they try to show that it gives you so rosy lips, that rosy color really attracted me. :)

What it Claims - Our lips have an amazing ability to experience heightened sensations, allowing us to feel the slightest of touch and sense the environment around us. However unlike body skin, the skin on our lips does not create its own moisture layer, leaving it susceptible to dryness and chapping.
Our stylish, functional Lip Therapy tins with their original retro look are perfect to help keep lips healthy and protected from the elements.
Packaging : You can see that it comes in paper and plastic pack, after tearing it I got a bright peach color of lip balm with white head but when I actually open it to see how the balm looks inside. I found that it looks like a vicks inhaler, the bright red thing is the cap of lip balm and for balm you have to twist it like any other usual lip balm. 
It comes in four different types -
  • Original has long been a firm favourite in handbags and pockets
  • Aloe Vera adds an extra soothing touch of hydration
  • Sun protection with SPF15 helps to protect you from the sun's harmful rays
  • Rosy Lips brings out the natural rosy tones in your lips by soothing and gently tinting.

I got its Rosy lips. So can't say much about its other lip balms.

Price - 100/- for 4 g.

Texture - It's pink shade really attracts and only one thought comes in mind is that it gives lips a really nice pinky color with moisturization. But all thoughts gone away when I applied it, it will not give you tinted pink lips or rosy lips. 
Yes, it's true I vigorously applied it on my lips to get that color or tinted effect but nothing got what I expected. :(

Smell - It has mild fruity smell, which is pleasant. :)

 Here is the 20-25 times vigorously swatch of Vaseline Lip therapy Rosy lips -
Pros -
Moisturizing, same as normal Vaseline we use.
Fruity Smell.
Cute packaging.
Color of lip balm is attractive.
No problem with availability. 

Cons -
Tinted but not that much.

Rating : 3 / 5

I'll not recommend it to you gals because there are better lip balms available in market.

Abstract Nail Art

Hello Galz!!
I'm here again with another nail art. This is an abstract design on my nails. If I have to explain this nail art in simple words than this is just flower petals with black background.
So let's start this simple abstract nail art -
Step 1 - Simply color all your nails with black, here I used a bit shimmery black nail paint.
Step 2 - Now make a small curve with pink nail paint on right corner of nail tip using nail art brush and fill this curve area with same pink nail paint.
Step 3 - Now take purple nail paint and make a petal next to pink petal as you can see in picture below.
Step 4 - Make next petal with bright green nail paint using nail art brush.
Step 5 - And at last make a small petal with red nail paint next to green colored petal.
Step 6 - Secure it with transparent top coat.
Hope you like my art of work. :)

Makeup Ideas For Girls Who Wear Glasses o-o

Do you think adding some frames to our face puts a snag in our makeup game?
Dilemma? Overdo it and you end up looking like sexy librarian gone terribly wrong. Play it too safe and your features disappear.
So here are some fantastically doable tips :

1. Make It Simple : Best to keep your eye makeup simple. Stick to neutral shades on the eyes but remember to blend a darker color on your crease. save the bright and bold colors for your lips.

2. Don't be afraid of mascara - Apply 2-3 coats of black mascara. It makes your eyes look bigger.

3. Gel Liner - Adjusting the thickness of liner is important when you're wearing glasses. "If your frames are thicker , you should apply thick eye liner to upper lash line so that eyes stand out. If your frame are thinner, a softer liner will work."

4. Day To Night - A bright or dark lip color can instantly transform into party ready and a bright shade of pink blush on your cheek will instantly give your face a lift. OR, you can use a lighter shimmer color on your lower lid. To create a smokey eye look for glasses, double line your eye. It instantly makes your eyes stand out without being too much. just line your eye with gel or pencil, then take similar colored eye shadow and using a liner brush, line above the previous line, smudging as you go.

5. Define brows - Glasses draw huge attention, so do not forget to shape and color your brows.

6. Pay Attention - If your prescription makes your eyes look smaller, be sure to line your eyes all the way around. use liner which is darker than the color of your eye. Finish with two to three coats of mascara on top lashes only.
If your prescription makes your eyes look bigger, use light hand when applying your eye makeup and be sure to blend everything carefully. For shadows, go with light and neutral shades. your eyeliner should be thin and delicate with only one coat of mascara.

NOTD, Pink Nail Paint

I came across a new nail paint, "Quiny" Nail Lacquer Coloriots its marketed by Jacquelline Sussaine. I heard this name for the first time but I decided to try it so bought few of them and here is the notd of this very peachy shade . I'm loving this shade.

Packaging : It’s a tiny nail paint bottle with light golden cap and name written in golden.
It's brush is not of very good quality.
Price : I don't remember its exact price but it was around 25/- for 5 ml.

After 1 coat of nail paint -

Shade : It has many shades in pinks and reds. It has no name for shades only number is written on cap's head, this peachy shade is number 29.

Texture : It’s thin in texture so one have to apply two coats of it to get the exact color.
Staying Power : It stays for 3 days and starts chipping off on 4th day. I thinks it's staying power is not bad as compared to other popular nail paints. If I want it to keep in place for more days I use few awesome tips.

After 2 coats of nail paint -

This is my new lappy... :)

Pink And Golden Eye Look, EOTD

Hello Everyone!
I have a saree which is of pink color with golden work on it. It’s really heavy and it twinkles a lot in parties. I was thinking what could be the eye makeup with this saree, so I made my mind and tried this eye makeup.
Now let’s talk about the eye makeup.

I used –
  • Light  Pink eye shadow.
  • Golden eye shadow.
  • Black eye shadow.
  • Eye liner (optional).
  • Kajal.
  • Mascara.
  • Highlighter.

1.       First apply light pink eye shadow on eye lid. You can change eye shadow colors according to your mood and dress.

2.       Then apply golden eye shadow on crease and above crease.

3. Then apply a jet black eye shadow on upper lash line and also on crease. Blend well all the colors but make sure to do not mix all the colors otherwise your work will get ruin.
4.  You can see clearly all the colors on my eyes on their place.

5.       Apply highlighter of white or neutral shade.

6.   You can also apply  eye liner, I only applied kajal and some black eye shadow on lower lash line with loads of mascara.
And here is the final look-

Do you like it or I need more perfection. I know nobody is perfect but i’ll try my best. :)

Beauty Tip : Best Way To Remove Eye Makeup

The question is, What is the best way to remove eye makeup?
I always end up either successfully removing makeup but at the expense of pulling out a few lashes or leaving my skin and eye lashes intact at the expense of having some makeup residue remaining.
Is it about the technique or quality of the products?

Answer is, it's little bit of both, really. The formula of remover does make a difference but the time you actually allow it to work is just as important.
It's best to use non-oil based remover (unless you're dealing with water-proof makeup).
Placing the cotton or pad over your eye and gently pressing and holding into your eye lashes, give the product a good 20-30 seconds to work. Then start wiping in downward motion to remove any left residue.
When it comes to choosing a formula, be sure to steer clear of anything containing sodium lauryl sulphate, as that will irritate the eyes and dry up delicate skin around the eye.

If you want to try homemade eye makeup remover then try these : Extra Virgin Olive oil, Baby oil, Vaseline, Mineral oil, Almond oil and Baby wipes.

What I use : Wash my face and eyes with baby shampoo to remove all sort of makeup.


How To Get Perfect Party Makeup

Who doesn't want to make head turns the moment they enter the party. Here are some tips to ensure that look just perfect for the party.
1. Clean the skin : Use the cleanser that helps to remove impurities of the skin and ensures a glowing skin.

2. Toning Time : Next apply the skin tone to refresh the skin tone and moisturize it well.

3. Set the base : Apply foundation in gentle tapping motion, and work it all the way around the eye up to the tip of eyebrow. Always begin along the center line of the face and blend outwards towards the corners of the face to create an even look, blending down past the jaw line and into the neck. For a final touch, application of loose powder or compact with a big fluffy brush will even the makeup out.

4. Eye Makeup : Apply your favorite eye shadow and line your upper and lower lash line with the dark black eye pencil or liquid eye liner, it will enhance your eyes. For luscious lashes, use mascara with strokes towards the nose on inner  eye lashes, straight up on central lashes and towards the temple on outer ones.

Tip :

  •  Adding shimmer to your eye makeup is a great way to turn a ho-hum look into a haute holiday one. Applying ton of glitter on eyelids or glitter accents in the corner of eye or you can create glitter eye liner, you can choose any color like deep blue and burgundy. For glitter eye liner, apply layer a bit of Vaseline on top of the line then take a bit of crumbly glitter and add it on the top of the Vaseline.
  • A smokey eye is a great way to add sexiness to your look. For smokey eye look you can also use any color around your eyes and apply loads of mascara.

5. Sensational lips : Apply a lip base as a primer. Ensure even, smooth application, as this lays the base for a perfect finish. If you don't use lip base, apply lip liner and after that use lip color. Then shape your lips using lip brush for an accurate shape. begin at outer edges and work in, meeting at the middle of your lips.

Tip : 

  • If you are applying a dark shade of lipstick then apply simple makeup on eyes and if you are applying dark and heavy eye makeup then wear soft shade of lip color.

Hope you'll find it helpful. :)

Simple and elegant, you can cheat the princess's hairstyle! This is half up and half down hairstyle.

Let's start -

  • Comb Your hairs gently.
  • Take hairs of your crown area or you can say hairs above the ear and make a ponytail.
  • Then twist your hairs and wrap around your hair band to make a bun with the help of bobby pin and Voila...You're done.
  • You can use gel or spray to get the more clean and tidy look, I prefer messy look. :)

I stuck to my natural hair type which is straight, you can add more glam by curling the ends of your hair.
