What's In My “All She Needs” - June Fab Bag 2018?

Fab Bag - All She Needs

Hi Guys,
Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, this has never happened before this time, I managed to receive my Fab Bag June 2018 Edition on the last day of the May itself. Since last 5 months, I’ve been getting it on the first day of the month but acquiring it beforehand seems like a blessing for sure. When I came home from work, I saw it waiting for me on its usual corner of the room; awaiting a marvellous unboxing. The box seemed quite heavy, thereby bloating my anticipations as to what might be inside. I was aware about one of the products in advanced as one of the makeup options was selected by me few days back. But the insights that I gathered from fab bag Instagram account was that the June bag encompass two makeup options. Amongst these, one of the makeup item is a newly launched lipstick and the other product was a yet to be launched nail lacquer. Moreover, the total worth of the bag is more than INR 2300.

So without more delay, let’s begin with the All She Needs Fab Bag unboxing!

All She Needs - Pastel Bag for this Month!

Theme of the Month: The All She Needs
Since this is a women’s subscription bag, the theme of the month revolves around the necessary products that a woman will need. The idea here is to include makeup and skincare which is imminently required by one and all.

Price: Rs. 599/ per month
The price for one month subscription is stated above but in case you want a long term subscription plan then the price would be comparatively less.

Products Inside My June 2018 Fab Bag:
When I unboxed the June Fab Bag 2018, I couldn’t curtail my excitement. Everything that I received was enough to pump up my enthusiasm. This is why; I tried all the products the very next morning itself. It was more like getting ready using fab bag products. Let’s see what I felt about each of the products.

Makeup Product - Sugar Smudge Me Not Lipstick 

Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 34 Merlot Glow (Full Size: INR 549)
I can’t clearly distinguish what led to what but this question will remain a mystery - Did  I become a makeup hoarding person after I started blogging or was it my fascination for hoarding that turned me a blogger? 😅 Whatever it is but I feel that certain things are inherited for sure. Sometimes I feel my father would have been a blogger, had internet scribbling picked hype during his days. Anyways, let me just keep aside these deviations and focus on the product.

Makeup Product - Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick in "Merlot Glow"

Sugar Smudge Me Not liquid lipstick was one of the products which was enough to keep me hooked on getting the June Fab Bag as soon as possible. I have a long term subscription owing to which I was given a selection for picking the shade and lipstick that I want. There were options from two ranges of the Sugar lipsticks. One of them was the recently launched crème lipsticks while the other range incorporated metallic lipsticks. I already had Sugar’s Brown Crown Liquid lipstick which I got in my March 2018 Fab Bag and I’ve been loving its longevity as well as formulation. Plus, crème lipsticks are preferred by me only in winters. So I picked up the shade Merlot Glow which is brownish maroon shade with an amazing metallic sheen. I must mention this that the metallic liquid lipsticks of Sugar Cosmetics are bomb! They have a very soft and easy to glide texture which glides so smoothly onto your lips. Unlike other Smudge Me Not lipsticks, the metallic lipsticks stay onto your lips even after a meal. The best way I feel for applying these lipsticks is to prep your lips with a layer of lip balm and apply one coat of the lipstick. Before the lipstick dried up, you can bloat the excess onto a cotton pad. Otherwise, just let the lipstick do its magic.

Sugar Tip Tac Toe Nail Lacquer – 062 Peacher Perfect (Full Size: INR 199)

Makeup Product - Sugar Tic Tac Tie Nail Paint from the collection "Candy Land"

Do I mind another Sugar Cosmetic’s product? Nope, not at all.

I’ve tried their nail lacquers and they dry quickly, preventing further hassle of ruining things around. Apparently, the shade collection that has been included in this month’s fab bag was launched only on 31st of May, 2018! This was the same day when I received my fab bag. The name of the collection is #CandyLand and all of the nail paints in this range are pastel shades that are lately trending quite a lot. The shade I received is 062 Peacher Perfect. It is more like a pink with peach undertones instead of the peach colour dominance. I applied it onto my nails the very same day I got it and the next morning, a male colleague of mine was complementing my nail colour! 😂😂

Kronokare Forest of Bengal Shower Gel (INR 140 for 35 ml)


Skincare - Kronokare Forest of Bengal Shower Gel

Till date, I wasn’t really a fan of 
incorporating sample body wash, shampoo or conditioner. Probably, I did not encounter one of those samples yet that'd compel me to go ahead and purchase a full sized packaging. Fortunately, this is what actually happened!

I was already intrigued by the packaging which had an art depicting forests; that's why it had a bird and some wilderness. Post applying the soft formulation of the Kornokare Forest of Bengal shower gel, I realised that as a blogger it is a part of my observation to sniff the product as well. This was exactly when the aroma uplifted my morning mood. I sometimes feel I’m not a morning person but then I’m neither a night person. Probably going office everyday is what ruins my mornings and products like these are definitely useful for people like me. I’m so keen to pick a full sized bottle of this shower gel. It has a beautiful fragrance which is hard to describe but all I can state is the fact that there’s no overpowering sweet fruit fragrance which I genuinely don’t like. The aroma of this shower gel is somewhat subtle yet very different. 


luis-luth-silver-face-gel
Skincare - Luis & Luth Silver Face Gel

Luis & Luth Silver Face Gel (Full Size: INR 1299)
This is apparently a luxury product since it’s quite expensive. The packaging is very simple and elegant at the same time. This is the first time I’ve heard about the name of this brand.

Since its summer time, I keep a lot of my skincare products in refrigerator as it helps in calming any kind of inflammation or irritation on the facial skin. It's a clear gel which is perfect for combination to oily skin type as it seeps into the skin very easily and there’s no greasiness left behind. I’ve used it once and probably after some more trials I’ll be able to comment more on this product. Till now, I pretty much like it but it is just the first impression.

Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Turmeric Cleanser (INR 57 for 20 grams)

aroma-magic-turmeric-cleanser
Blossom Kocchar - Aroma Magic Turmeric Cleanser

Blossom Kochhar products definitely need no introduction and what’s better than a turmeric cleanser for summers when the face turns into an oil-mine plus all the bacteria decide to enjoy and breed acne! This is a sample product and it is meant exclusively for the combination skin. The product claims to deep clean and soothe the skin which it actually does owing to its slightly hydrating/creamy base. It does not leave the skin squeaky clean with slight dryness. If you have an oily skin, then you might not like it.

aps-olive-scrub
Skincare - APS Cosmetofood Olive Scrub

APS Cosmetofood Exfoliating Olive Scrub (INR 80 for 20 ml)
APS is comparatively a new brand but if I’m not wrong I did checkout their Instagram and they have some amazing products in their catalogue. Fun fact about this product – the products from the brand APS have real food essence in them and they are completely organic in nature. When I tried this scrub, I was dreading an oily base since the product name specifies olive. Fortunately, this scrub has such an amazing texture and formulation that being an oily skinned person; you’d want to invest into a full sized product. Unlike granular scrubs, this scrub has micro beads for exfoliation which does not aggravate any skin irritation or acne. It is quite gentle onto the skin and leaves the skin healthy without the traces of greasiness.

A flaw that I came across was its lid, which does not properly close back. Although when it reached me, the packaging was closed perfectly and nothing spilled out. But post usage, I’m not able to close it and the lid comes out quite easily.

Final Verdict:
Overall, I’m quite impressed with almost every product that has been added into the bag this month. In fact, the bag itself is quite sturdy and available in pastel shades. Moreover, even the samples incorporated were quite fascinating. Also, what more can you ask for when you’re getting two makeup products each month.



Team TGL Says:
My personal expectation from a subscription box is - To receive products, even if it’s in a sample size format but those samples should be in a way such that they seem worth the money spent each month! This is truly what the team of Fab Bag managed to conquer with the curation of June 2018 Fab Bag.

Fab Bag - #TheAllSheNeeds is a great hit in my opinion!

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…
