First Anniversary of ‘Think It Over’

Image
When I was in 10th grade, my dad would teach me maths. He was aware of my incapability in cramming formulas; this is why he would showcase me how they have been derived. But when I compared my progress with other students, I saw I was slow to learn and annoyed I told my father that this derivation thing is actually time consuming and I should perhaps simply start cramming them like others and begin with questions. And here’s what he told me- “Study never goes waste. It might not help you today in exams but in the longer run or somewhere on someday you’d realize it was all worth the while.”
But in 10th and 12th grade, you simply dismiss these ideas because all you wanna do is gain good scores in the Board Exams. That’s what your school and tuition teachers are worried about. In my first semester of graduation, I flunked my two exams due to some personal issues. My family was quite supportive as they knew I tried and did what I could. My dad said- “You studied, you played your part, and …

My Mini Eyeshadow Collection

Image
Hello everyone,
You must be wondering why lately I am plunging into my vanity and sharing with you my makeup collection; the answer being- I just managed to de-clutter my drawer and organize them. When I attend college, early morning rush results in a cyclone in my almirah and drawers. Result being, clothes piled up like a mini mountain and I was just aware of the things that were lying on the top. The same was with the makeup drawers. There was even a small toothpaste tube lying in there out of nowhere. After all the cleansing ritual of my cupboard, it finally looks pretty that you can easily detect what is where. The next morning when my dad saw it, he was amazingly shocked at my organizing skills and he pointed out at my book rack for the same time consuming process. Trust me, my books are like all over my house, and the rack being so messed up that once I tried taking out a book and some papers simply fell over my head. That’s what an exam fever causes to my storing places. *LOL*

Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Pack

Image
Hello people, Welcome to my Blog :)

The summers of Delhi give out an open invitation to small pimples on my face, that are apparent within the skin but shy away from fully emerging outside. These are the days when I need to take extra care and keep at bay these crazy summer acne. 

I’ve been using the Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Pack from quite some time and I wonder why I haven’t reviewed it earlier. This face pack is my alternative to the Khadi Neem Face Pack that I’ve been using religiously for more than two years. I’ve reviewed the same here- http://lyfabubble.blogspot.com/2015/08/khadi-neem-face-pack-ayurvedic-ubtan.html. The Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Pack is exclusively for days when I am in no mood to amalgamate various contents and create a face pack from powdered consistency.

Himalaya is one such brand that contains all natural ingredients, thus you do not need to worry about applying chemical onto your face. I have also tried their face washes in Neem, Lemon and Aloe-vera var…

Makeup Revolution London: The Matte Effect Cover & Conceal: Concealer Stick

Image
Hello people,

The weekend flew away without major happenings. I went Daryaganj with my friend to get his guitar strings fixed and on the way back, we almost bumped into a vehicle. Currently, my left leg has so many internal injury marks; ranging from green to black. My memory is filled with so many 2 wheeler incidents that you’d be quite amazed.  *LOL*


Lately, I had been eyeing at Makeup Revolution London the Matte Effect Cover & Conceal Concealer Stick in the darkest shade on Flipkart. Although it is priced at INR 550, on flipkart it was available at somewhere around INR 250. I really wanted a bronzing stick and in India, cream bronzers aren’t easily available at an affordable price. But I wasn’t sure about the texture of this concealer stick. I did not want to invest in a concealer that does not blend and that too in a shade that’s darker than my skin tone. Fortunately, I received this same concealer stick in my May Fab Bag but in the shade MC 01 Fairest. I’ve reviewed the same he…

Race Uphill Chasing Whiteness? (Think Again!)

Image
I was watching DNA on Zee News and the news of whitening creams containing mercury was quite a setback for me. Not because of the shocking revelation, but for the fact that India, being a nation of golden skin tone, is blindly running to attain fairness. The demand of white skin has risen to such an extent that even though the colonizer had long back decided to move out, we ourselves have been propagating ideas of discrimination within our co- citizens. Log onto any matrimonial website, and if you aren’t asked about your colour, then I’d say you are definitely lucky. When we were searching for a bridegroom for my sister, trust me, each guy or his parents desire to have a fair bride. Ask them why; perhaps because they have been endowed with beliefs that fairness is equal to beauty. 

The word pretty, gorgeous or attractive are meant exclusively for outer form, but the word BEAUTIFUL transgresses the physical and goes skin deep to depict the real you. I believe wheatish and olive skin ton…

ADS Long-lasting Lip gloss

Image
Hello Everyone,
Recently, I organized my vanity drawer. It had been messed up to such an extent that I could hardly find something within it; and to my annoyance, my mother stored few random stuff into it as well, like a toothpaste.  *LOL* As I cleaned up, I found this ADS Long Lasting Lip Gloss which was purchased 2 weeks back.



ADS products can be found in local cosmetics store or online. The one I am reviewing, is available on Amazon, but in a set of four or six. When I saw this in the store, I picked it up just to see how well it fares, as it’s sold at quite a cheap price. Currently, I am studying, so I always look out for affordable products rather than the luxurious ones. ADS Long Lasting Gloss in actually a liquid lipstick and the packaging claims that it stays for 24 hours. There are details written on it regarding ingredients and product manufacturing. But one thing that’s missing is a price tag. The lipstick comes in a plastic tube which is translucent and the colour can easil…

First Attempt @ Smokey Eye Makeup Look

Image
Hello readers, Welcome to my Blog :)
It’s been such a long time since I am a proud owner of Maybelline the N*des Palette. (Reviewed here- http://lyfabubble.blogspot.in/2015/12/maybellinethe-nudes-palette-hey-guys.html)  I don’t know why, but until yesterday, I failed to see a black eyeshadow sitting there in the second row right corner. Perhaps, I was too mesmerized by taupey brown and two variants of gold that the plain black went unnoticed. On its discovery, the first thing that came to my mind was to try on a smokey eye look. I am no makeup professional, so if I managed to do it, then it’s definitely an easy beginner’s Smokey Eye Makeup Look. So let’s start, shall we?
  1)Prep your eyelid by dotting some foundation/concealer/eyeshadow primer. I’ve used Makeup Revolution Matte Concealer Stick in the shade 01- Fairest. Then lightly dust some compact powder so that the eyshadows can be blended easily.    2) To increase the intensity of a black eyeshadow, I first used Incolor Colour Crayon…
