What’s in My November 2016 Fab Bag!


It’s more than a week since we’ve transgressed into December; yet I am still writing a November Fab Bag post 😥 I’ve been missing as I have my external exams of post graduation going on. And I feel guilty of not posting all this while; I still have two of my exams left, both of which will get over by the 10th of this month. Anyways, I still managed to draft this post and I am really sorry for not being around.

So without further adieu, let’s begin!

The Bag: The bag this month I think was available in 2-3 colours; pink, red and copper brown. Ironically I received the one I was thinking of not getting! 😅😅 Life’s cruel! Haha 

Anyways, the bag is shiny, mimicking snake skin ever so slightly. Mine is a pink and I ain’t a fan of pink to be honest. The bag had slight fading of the colour which of course was a turn off. One of my school friends saw it and was like “I seriously did not like this month’s Bag”. This coming from a guy was like a gospel of truth, mirroring exactly what was upto my mind! LOL But contents still managed to cover up for it.

Contents Received:
   ·  City Color Be Matte Lipstick- Brianda (Full Size Rs. 500/-) 💄
   ·  The Body Shop Drops of Youth Concentrate (Rs. 2895/- for 30 ml)
   ·   Just Herbs Aloe Vera Facial Massage Gel (Rs. 445 for 100 grams)
   ·   Natural Bath & Body Beautiful Day Body Mist (Rs. 325/- for 200 ml)

City Color Be Matte Lipstick

Since Fab Bag has recently started to let its family chose the makeup item that they like, I picked up M24 Brianda. The options consisted of a variety of reds with different undertones. Though, I already have a lot of reds in my vanity now but I still had to select one. This is a brownish- maroon kinda red which would look so flattering on medium skin tone. It’s definitely one of those bold fall shades. Packaging resembles the Sugar Cosmetics Matte lipsticks, except for the fact that this one has its lid to be transparent.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Concentrate

The Body shop recently launched its Youth Enhancing Range consisting of: Youth Essence Lotion, Youth Day Cream, Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask & the Youth Concentrate; which I received thanks to Fab Bag. I was looking forward for it and was quite sceptical as some of them had received Veda Earth Under Eye Oil. I haven’t tried this as of now but surely will go ahead with it once I subside my acne of those days. Receiving The Body Shop products is definitely simply paves way to heart!

Just Herbs Aloe Vera Facial Massage Gel

I’ve been wanting to try out Just Herbs products, especially their acne treatment. So when I received this Aloe Vera Facial Massage Gel, I kinda saved it for pampering time! 😁 It has a sweet fragrance which isn’t too overpowering. The packaging is great and the consistency kinda surprised me. It isn’t exactly like a gel because I had Patanjali gels lying around. The consistency is somewhat amidst a gel and a cream. It nourishes/ hydrates better than  a gel but doesn’t feel sticky like a cream.
(My skin type- Combination + Sensitive + Acne Prone 😅 )

Natural Bath & Body Beautiful Day Mist
This is a deluxe sample bottle containing 50 ml. The mist I tried doesn’t stay too long since obviously it is a mist but it still leaves away that lingering sensation. The fragrance is quite refreshing. Sweet tones aren’t gonna evade you off the earth so I really liked it!

Until Next Time,
Take Care 💓

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…
