Hello everyone,
Today I shall be sharing my views, reviews and swatches of the Bornpretty Store 11 Colors Shimmer 4 Colors Matt Eyeshadow palette which I hauled last time from the website.You can check that post HERE. I have never owned any eyeshadow palette like this in my life from any brand simply because I do not wear eyeshadows, I am too lazy for it.But that does not mean I do not own any. I usually buy quads, trio or single eyeshadows from inexpensive brands and I am not at all fussy about the same. It has been my wish to stock up on some nice eyeshadow palettes because they are more cool than singles, not only you have a variety to choose from but you know you will find everything in that one palette. To know more about this palette keep on reading.......

The palette comes enclosed in a cardboard packaging. The ingredients are mentioned on the box. It opens and shuts well but does not come with a mirror which it should have actually and no applicators or brushes which I am ok with.Overall no fancy packaging but decent

Matte white shade, pearly white color, light steel grey, dark grey and a matte black
All 5 shades are decently pigmented and will work for everyone

Lass Naturals Spring Mist Face Freshner & Toner Review

Hello everyone,
Hope the week has gone well for you. Not for me at all as my phone does not work due to battery issues and the company has been giving me tough time just for a replacement battery can you beat that????  I still see no hope until mid week of the coming one. I miss social media like Instagram, Snapchat and my phone obviously, I mean it has been almost 10 days now and in the times we are, can you live without your phone???  Somehow this year has turned out to be worst for me and my family. I recently had a painful root canal done on my tooth paid 7k to fix it. Sounds too much ranting I know but this is what has been up with me lately. Not having a phone and staying away from social media has given me time to catch up with my life and plan new things but it can also get lonely for someone who is single like me and leads to unnecessary thoughts. Thankfully I have my computer to catch up with my blogging to keep me busy.

Lass Naturals Spring Mist Face Freshner & Toner Review

So anyways I am going to review Lass Naturals Spring Mist Face Freshner & Toner on the blog today. This brand is not new to my blog, you can check my other reviews HERE. Recently there has been an increasing no of brands in the market and each of them come up with a mist but not all that I have tried have worked well for me.If you want to know what I think of this one and my experience using it, please keep on reading....

Price: Rs.195/- for 100 ml. Available at a discounted price online HERE

Ingredients:
Rose Water (Rosa Damascena), Lavender Water (Lavandula Angustifolia), Jasmine Flower Water (Jasminum Officinale), Chamomile Flower Water (Chamomilla Recutita), Veg. Glycerin, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis), Panthenol, Glycolic Acid [Fruit Derived], Natural Vitamin E (Tocopherol), Wheat- Germ Ext. (Triticum Vulgare), Potassium Sorbate.

Lass Naturals Spring Mist Face Freshner & Toner Review
Shelf life: 2 years

How to use:
Close your eyes, spray onto the face and allow the freshness to absorb into your skin pat dry and wipe with cotton cloth if required.

Product Description:
Lass Spring Mist has been specifically formulated for instant refreshment, moisture and skin protection. Infused with natural extracts and ingredients that help calming, hydrating, replenishing, adding radiance and balance the pH of the skin. Relaxes and tones the pores leaving skin silky smooth. It is also excellent for setting make-up, just spray over make-up to seal it after applying.

Lass Naturals Spring Mist Face Freshner & Toner Review

The facial mist comes in a transparent plastic spray bottle type of packaging. There is a sticker stuck on it which has all the necessary information you would need like Ingredients, about the product etc. It is a spritz bottle and ohh how I love them it makes life so easy. The bottle is perfect to carry around while travelling.

Lass Naturals Spring Mist Face Freshner & Toner Review

The mist in pink in color and smells floral and you can easily tell that from the description. A toner is generally used after cleansing. If you have any knowledge about this, you would know what I am talking about. The face mist instantly refreshes your face on spraying and should be wiped off after sometime. I also use it when I use any foundation or BB cream to blend it well and it does a great job. I used my Ponds BB cream along with it and it worked wonders. Since it does contain glycerine and Vitamin E it does a great job of locking in the make up but do not compare it to an actual setting spray.Nonetheless it does a decent job. I just love it and could not find any cons to it. A must try in my opinion.

The Good:
Easily available 
Inexpensive
Cleanses the pores well
Hydrating & Refreshing
Works as a setting mist post make up
Convenient spritz bottle
Travel friendly

The not so Good:
Can't think of any

MLWM Rating: 5/5

Lass Naturals Spring Mist Face Freshner & Toner is one of the best toner I have tried. It cleanses the pores and skin well leaving it hydrating and refreshed. A must try in my opinion.

Have you tried anything from Lass Naturals before??What do you think of this product?? Do comment below and let me know.

Have an enjoyable weekend

Patanjali Kesh Kanti Aloe Vera Hair Cleanser Review

Hi everyone,
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Blogging for me is become very slow unlike before when I had all the energy to click pictures this and that. Well no I am not that old but now after almost 550+ posts on the blog you start feeling the pinch (tiredness and mental block)  that I should post more  quality and less quantity. I have been churning out ideas and plans about which direction my blog should go to next year  because I feel you cannot put your heart and soul into something which does not reap the fruits of your hardwork. Anyway that is some rant may be will post someday.

Patanjali  Kesh Kanti Aloe Vera Hair Cleanser Review 

Talking about today's review I shall be reviewing  the Patanjali  Kesh Kanti Aloe Vera Hair Cleanser which I have been using since the last 3 weeks. I had purchased this after knowing that it is a new launch and also saw everyone hauling it hence was curious to know how it will work for my hair. If you wish to know more about this shampoo please keep on reading...

Price: Rs.75/- for 200 ml. Easily available online HERE

About the product and Ingredients list:

Patanjali  Kesh Kanti Aloe Vera Hair Cleanser Review 

Packaging:
The shampoo comes in a clear transparent bottle with a flip cap which makes life easy. At the shop I found some of them a bit faulty so please check before you buy. The ingredients and instructions are mentioned at the back of the bottle. 

Patanjali  Kesh Kanti Aloe Vera Hair Cleanser Review 

The shampoo is gel based and is not too thick nor thin. It is green in color in conjunction with aloe vera but they have added color as mentioned on the bottle. Now I am a person who does not experiement with shampoos a lot as I do not want any hair damage but then the Aloe vera thing tempted me :P Ok now what I think of this shampoo is that it is amazing for my oily scalp as it cleanses it so well and also the fragrance is fruity which some may not like but I do it makes me feel fresh, energized and I get that clean feeling on my scalp.

Patanjali  Kesh Kanti Aloe Vera Hair Cleanser Review 

Patanjali  Kesh Kanti Aloe Vera Hair Cleanser Review 

 Now although I have an oily scalp the ends are dry and frizzzy so I would suggest to best use it with a conditioner either of the same brand or of your choice.I use a sufficient amount to lather my hair and rinse it off nicely, I did not feel any sticky residue remaining on my scalp which I absolutely love. Now I feel Patanjali products are a hit or miss for me but this one I do recommend to people with a dirty/oily scalp as it does a fine job of cleansing the scalp. It can be used by any hair type unless extremely dry but followed with a conditioner of course!

The Good:
Inexpensive
Easily available
Goodness of herbs like Brahmi and Aloe Vera
Smells fruity & fresh
Helps in controlling scalp odour.
Cleanses the scalp well
Makes hair bouncy and clean

The not so Good:
Packaging - cap is flimsy
Fragrance is amazing but can bother sensitive noses
May not be best for those with extremely dry hair & scalp

MLWM Rating: 4.4/5

Patanjali  Kesh Kanti Aloe Vera Hair Cleanser does a great job of cleansing the scalp and hair. It imparts a lovely fruity smell which makes you feel fresh in the scalp post hair wash. I am loving it and would highly recommend it to everyone ☺

Let me know in the comments section if you have tried the Patanjali  Kesh Kanti Aloe Vera Hair Cleanser before?? Would love to hear from you all.

Until next time.... Take care xoxo

Born Pretty Smudge-free Lip Gloss Long Lasting Lipstick Review & Swatches

Hi everyone,
Do you remember my last Born Pretty Store haul I did a few days ago?? I did a collective post mentioning the latest make up items I bought from them. Today I shall be reviewing  Born Pretty Smudge-free Lip Gloss Long Lasting Lipsticks in Shade no. 01 and 03. Liquid lipsticks have taken the beauty world by storm, every brand has been coming up with them. The price range,texture, longevity varies from one brand to another. I have always been a fan of Born Pretty Store make up, beauty and jewellery items and hence when I saw these I thought of picking them up. I have been using them for a while and I will tell you my experience today about the same....




Price: US $1.99 each They come in 8 variants

About Bornprettystore:
The store  is based in Hong Kong does sell a variety of goodies from make up, make up tools, jewellery, Nail art stuff, Watches etc. I have reviewed a lot of their fashion jewellery but they also do have make up, make up brushes and other tools which I have been exploring lately.




Packaging:
They come in long and slender plastic transparent tubes with a black cap. They have a doe foot applicator which makes application a piece of cake.It does come with an expiration date however there is no ingredients anywhere.. Hmmm Most chinese brands and brands otherwise don't mention them too from what I have seen and experienced

Shade no.01: It is a beautiful blue based red and will suit all skin tones in my opinion. It is a perfect red for me as it brightens my skin tone.

Shade no.03: It is an out and out purple color.I was looking for a shade like this since forever. Thanks to the swatches mentioned on the site it was easy for me to choose. This color is a personal choice in my opinion. I am able to pull this off and I feel it will suit fair to medium skin tones.




My experience using them:
Both the shades are easy to apply and go glossy on the lips. The red one was good but I found the purple a bit patchy hence I layered it and it seemed ok. At first you might feel your lips sticking together but once it sets it dries into a matte finish which I loved. It lasts for 3 hours and after meal it fades from the centre which does not look good and one may have to retouch it for sure. There is no shimmer and no bad smell to the product. For $1.99 it is decent and worth trying in my opinion.

MLWM Rating:4/5

 Born Pretty Smudge-free Lip Gloss Long Lasting Lipstick are decent and budget liquid lipsticks which apply glossy and then turn to a matte finish. For the price and availability it is a must try. Born Pretty Store has Free Shipping and there is no minimum amount to order however I would suggest ordering less to avoid custom duties. The make up section is amazing do check it out and do not forget to use my code HATT10 for additional 10% off on your complete order(This is not an affiliate link)

I hope this post was informative as well as helpful to all those reading. Comment below with your inputs would love to hear from you all. Have you shopped from Born Pretty Store before???

Until next time.. Take care xoxo

My fashion wishlist from STYLEWE.com

Hello everyone,
It is September already and gosh I really can't believe it. Time is not even running but flying in full speed. In another 3 months Christmas will be here.So I have already in mind started planning as to what will I be wearing for Christmas.Being a Christian we do have 2 major festivals and we make sure we buy the best of clothes. Now we always have a option of visiting stores in nearby areas or malls but online shopping is something else. Somehow I have shopping more online than ever.While browsing through international websites I came across StyleWe which really caught my attention.

StyleWe.com 

StyleWe is online fashion platform featuring independent fashion designers.We are committed to providing shoppers with original, high quality and exclusive fashion products from independent designers.They have free shipping on order over $60 They ship to 7 countries currently - United States, United Kingdom,Italy, Germany,France, Canada and Australia.

While going through their website I came up with a list of items which I would love to try from their website:
1. DABUWAWA
This blue Paneled Lace mini skirt is so beautiful. I love the white detailing on the outfit and it also would make it perfect for wear on Christmas or New Year.The lace detailing makes it look very feminine and cute.

                    


2. ONEBUYE
I love leggings and there is no denying to it. Long or short you name it and I want to collect them all.Black Work Plain Beaded Legging pictured below is a classic black and 3/4th in size which makes it perfect for casual outings, dinners or dates.

A Blue Slit 3/4 Sleeve A-line Denim Shirt Dress is perfect for me. If you remember years ago these were in fashion. Denim styles keep on repeating and hence it is always good to invest in one such denim dress. This one looks super comfortable and classy.

                 


5. QIANBH

VLCC Wild Turmeric Face Wash Review

Hi everyone,
The weather has been crazy here in Mumbai - it rains sometimes and sometimes it doesn't, also the weather is quite humid which has made my skin very oily. VLCC product reviews have been a regular feature on my blog and some of them have worked really well for me. I did try their Melia Neem Face Wash before and liked it. Today I am going to review VLCC's Wild Turmeric Face Wash which I have been using in the past weeks. Read on to know how it fared on me.....

VLCC Wild Turmeric Face Wash Review

Price: Rs.140/- for 80ml. Available online at a discounted price HERE

Key Ingredients:
Termanalia Arjuna (Arjuna Bark Ext) 0.6%, Euphorbia Thymifolia (Euphorbia Seed Ext) 1.2%, Cucurma Aromatica (Wild Turmeric Ext) 2.25%, Sapindus Trifoliatus (Soap Nut Ext) 5%, Apis Mellifica (Honey) 2%, Cleanser Base Q.S.


VLCC Wild Turmeric Face Wash Review

Brand description of the product:
Wild turmeric, used in numerous Ayurvedic products, is known for its skin purifying and healing qualities. It is loaded with anti-oxidants and has anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties. The yellow pigment in the turmeric makes the skin look brighter. Wild turmeric along with Honey, which is another great natural anti-septic and a rich hydrator, makes this facewash a refreshing, gentle cleanser that removes microbes and pollutants from the pores and protects the skin against environmental damage. Use this daily for clear, brighter complexion.


VLCC Wild Turmeric Face Wash Review

The face wash comes in a semi transparent white tube with a white colored flip cap which helps in dispensing the right amount of product. The product is travel friendly.


VLCC Wild Turmeric Face Wash Review

VLCC Wild Turmeric Face Wash Review

The face wash has a faint yellow color and has a gel like consistency which is not too thick nor thin. It smells like a mixture of honey and turmeric which are its main ingredients. The smell reminds me of my childhood when I used a shampoo smelling similar to this smell.Coming to the point the face wash lathers well and does a good job of cleansing the skin without drying it. I have used it for more than 2 weeks and have been liking it. I did notice any breakouts or reactions. It will work for all skin types except if you have extremely dry skin. Wild turmeric is beneficial for the skin because it works an antiseptic ingredient and helps in the occurence of acne. A decent face wash worth trying in my opinion.

The Good:
Easily available
Inexpensive
Contains goodness of honey & wild turmeric
Cleanses the skin well.
Smells nice
Hydrating
Does not dry the skin
Travel friendly packaging

The not so Good:
Not best for extremely dry skin
Only key ingredients mentioned

MLWM Rating: 4.2/5

VLCC Wild Turmeric Face Wash cleanses the skin and gives it a hydrating feel without drying it. With natural ingredients like wild honey and turmeric, it is a must try in my opinion.

So have you tried the VLCC Wild Turmeric Face Wash before?? Do let me know in the comments section. I hope this product review was informative and useful to all those reading.

Until next.. Take care and Happy Friday xoxo
