Urban Decay Palette Dupe from Price, Review & Swatches

Hello lovely ladies,

Whenever I use the word lovely, it reminds me of a friend whose 9 years elder to me and still doesn’t get bored in chatting with me while he’s at work. TMI you say? :’-D

Recently, I was bombarded with so many awaited parcels and I mentioned about these in my recent haul post which you can read here. I had for so long waited to shop from It is a China based website that offers amazing stuff at dirt cheap rates. They have so many close dupes of high end products that I couldn’t resist myself from dropping an order. I was just hunting a person who could be my saviour and swipe the magic of his card like a magician’s stick because I still do not own a credit/debit card. It approximately took slightly less than a month for it to arrive. Tmart offers worldwide free delivery which is definitely a bonus *Wide Grin* I was initially sceptical since the order was to arrive from China and I feared that I might end up getting broken makeup. Unfit packaging and broken makeup shatters away my heart within a micro second.

The Urban Decay Naked Palette (Dupe) arrived within a cardboard packaging which isn’t too appealing but then at the price of $5.99 or INR 400 (as per today’s dollar rate) I cannot expect the simpleton wondrous packaging of the real Naked Palette. Inside, the palette comes within a flimsy thick cardboard which has been covered in a brown velvet cloth. The palette contains a mirror which is definitely not small and quite convenient. What I dislike about my Maybelline the N*des Palette is that it lacks a mirror and while applying eyeshadow I first need to look into the palette then into the mirror and this drill goes on for a long time. Also, the Naked Palette Dupe comes along with a brush. It does not really mimic the original one as the colour itself it similar to that of the Real Techniques purple makeup brushes; and this doesn’t really help in blending but more for patting on the eyeshadow and intensifying the outer v corner. 

The eyeshadows have same names as in the real palette and most of them appear alike. The shades that really wounded my heart were- Naked, Buck & Half Baked. These two are really raved about as a transitional shade on YouTube but within the dupe palette they are really of no use. Naked & Half Baked are hardly visible onto the lids. Within this spectrum of colours, those at extreme left aren’t too pigmented in comparison to those at the other end of the tunnel (not literally). The eyeshadows do have leave off fallouts and those with shimmers are actually pigmented while the matte shades are a dud. These do blend but takes a teeny tiny more effort. To accentuate the colour intensity, you can use an eyeshadow base or concealer and spray your brush, not dripping wet, with H2O. These can work well for those who are new into makeup and don’t want to spend on expensive eyeshadows. For those of you who work with eyeshadows on a daily basis can surely order these. Lastly, I guess I’d go back again onto Tmart and dug up for more dupes *Wink*

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 

Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
