Unboxing Fab Bag: September (2016) Edition

Hello people,

If you remember, I lost my July Fab Bag pouch in a chaotic moment along with makeup items within it. So this month, I was trying to cover up for my lost items by splurging more. Guilt turned into happiness! *LOL* I ordered my bag on 3rd September and received it day before yesterday; approximately took 10 days to arrive.

This month’s Fab Bag theme was “The Eye Feel Pretty”, hinting upon the new launch of Sugar’s Lash Mob Limitless Mascara. Also, it was Fab Bag’s 4th Anniversary. The pouch remains the star of this edition. It has a leather feel to it with one side colored cream and the backside all black. There’s an amazing inspiration quote for a makeup lover which says “My life May Not Be Perfect... But My Lashes Most Definitely Are”.

As I unzipped the pouch, I found 3 usual cards. First carrying the details of the products that I received, another being about this month’s contest and lastly a 10% off Renewal Card. Now onto what I received:-

  1.   Be A Bombshell Eye Shadow Crayon (High Roller) INR 1200: Fab Bag has offered this eyeshadow crayon in their earlier edition as well, but back then, I was still not a matured makeup junkie! I own no eyeshadow crayons and I wanted one from Rimmel for quite some time, so I picked up this product when Fab Bag team offered the opportunity to choose the makeup item. I actually liked their new alteration as per which makeup product can be chosen by the receiver. Other options available were SeaSoul eyeshadow Duo, Sugar’s newly launched eyeshadow and few other products. The shade ‘High Roller’ is an olive green shade which would look gorgeous for the Fall season!

  2.  Lollipops Paris Anti Cernes Concealer (Light Beige) INR 800: Till now, I’ve only seen people receiving one makeup item in a bag and others are sample of various skincare or hair care products. If I was not to receive this, I would have got Sand Deadly Face Mask. I was actually looking forward to it since currently my skin is getting few acne bumps. Some people feared that this mask could have ruined their bag but fortunately it was packed within a small zip lock bag that homeopathic doctors keep. More makeup; more happy! *wink* The shade ‘Light Beige’ is slightly lighter to my skin tone as summer tanning has made me yellow toned. I can anyways use it for highlighting purposes on occasional basis.

  3.   AVA Face & Body Scrub (Spring Pond) INR 325 for 100 ml: In July, I received the Pep Shampoo (for dry hair) and Johara Face Scrub which too wasn’t exactly meant for my skin type. Finally, I got a scrub that vaters to my oily skin type. This face & body scrub contains mint and tea tree. To add to its praises, it is fragrance free (artificial), has no SLS & parabens sulphates. It smells citrusy due to lemongrass and I like its natural fragrance. The consistency of this scrub is thick and has minute granules. On the face, it gives slight cooling sensation and unlike other scrubs which end up hydrating the face unnecessarily, this truly is suitable for the oily skin type. Since it carved a soft spot into my heart, I ain’t gonna use it onto my body. It feels precious now! *LOL*

  4.  Neemli Tulsi & Sandalwood Body Wrap INR 550 for 75 grams: This is like those powdered masks wherein you add in some form of liquid (water, rose water, milk, etc.) and make it into a paste. Though the name is quite ambiguous for me to understand where it can be used but the packaging says it fades blemishes and pimple marks. So I might save it all for my face because I’ve got one undeterred acne mark which needs to be eradicated. Ingredients mentioned are Tulsi Powder, Sandalwood Powder, Fullers Earth.

  5.   Fashionography Accessory INR 249: This was an extra addition and while filling my preferences at the time of booking my Fab Bag. I expected a pretty neckpiece but all people I saw online received earrings which are kinda cute. I am no longer an earring person since I like to wear my hair down and stud earrings aren’t really visible then. I wear earrings only occasionally and that too danglers. And then for 5 hours of earrings, the next few weeks I can’t wear any earrings. It’s weird but that’s how it is with me. I’d say these earrings are decent for everyday wear, not too glamorous. I am not really too impressed with these.
      P.s. All prices mentioned above are majorly of a full size product. Except for the makeup products, other things are sample sized.

      Until Next Time,
      Take Care <3

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…
