Fab Bag July 2018 - The Gotcha Covered - Unboxing & Review


Fab Bag July 2018

Hi Guys,
Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Do you like surprises? 😍
For me personally, Fab bag is one of those surprises which keeps me hooked every month without fail. As soon as it’s around 20th, I start presuming about things that shall knock my door on the initial days of the month. This time, my Fab Bag July 2018 Edition reached me on 02/07/2018 as it was a weekend prior to that. I love the fact that every product inside is intertwined with a theme which the brand alters every month in order to keep each bag exclusive. Since monsoon is officially here, the bag revolves around pampering the skin and keeping the tresses frizz-free. Without me blabbering more, let’s directly begin with the unboxing of the July 2018 fab bag!

Theme of the Month: The Gotcha Covered

Price: Rs. 599/ per month


Fab Bag - The Gotcha Covered - July Fab Bag

About the Bag:
This time, we have an amazing waterproof and mood-uplifting bag which has a zip closure. Also, the bag is quite spacious from inside but it won’t take a lot of space in your college/work bag. Bags/pouches variant which you will be receiving this time will be from one of the five colours including turquoise blue, violet, green, navy blue and mustard yellow. Mine is pink in colour and I like it owing to its unique design but I had my eyes glued on the navy blue and turquoise blue variants. πŸ˜…πŸ˜… In comparison with earlier pouches from the other months, this one has a good breadth to it which makes it easier if you want to store makeup products like an eyeliner pencil or a makeup brush. 


Fab Bag Pouch for the month of July

The Process of Product Selection:
Each month, there’s this one makeup product about which we are well informed prior to everything, thanks to the product selection mails by the fab bag team. I genuinely appreciate the fact that we get to choose the colour or variant from the makeup options as the same brand/product/shade might not suit everyone. We all have different fascinations as well as choices, based on which, we get our makeup product. This time, we have numerous lip crayon shades from the brand MyGlamm. I’ve tested their products before and I did like their multi-pupose products but the price point abstain me from investing upon them. Anyways, too many choices got me spoilt and I was eyeing shades like ‘biscotti’ and ‘cosmopolitan’. Ultimately, I thought that I wanted something in pink which isn’t a nude-pink but not overtly pink with blue undertones. I finally came to a decision and chose the shade - Carnation (005). Simultaneously my mind reminded me of that dialogue from ‘Pyaar ka Punchnama 2’ wherein the lead actress was bifurcating the shades of pink! 😁

Products In My Fab Bag July 2018 Edition:


MyGlamm Perfect Curves 2 in 1 Matte Lipstick & Lipliner


MyGlamm - 005 Carnation - Swatch

⏩MYGLAMM Perfect Curves 2 in 1 Matte Lipstick & Lipliner - Carnation (Full Size: Rs. 795)
First and foremost, the packaging of the MyGlamm lip crayon is so classy with a synchronized colour combination of serene white and golden. Since I love makeup and lipsticks are my bae, for me, this is the star product of the month! The texture of this lip crayon is awesome as you can easily draw your pout due to its initial slight creamy texture but it sets matte. Unlike other matte lipsticks, you would not feel a tug at your lips while filling them in. Apart from this, the rotatory mechanism of the crayon helps in saving the product from hassle of sharpening. In short, the crayon has a comfortable texture, good longevity, convenient packaging and the beautiful colour which I picked, that is Carnation, makes it one of my recent favorites. The shade Carnation is one of those pinks which can compliment your western as well as ethnic outfits.

For the matter of fact, I applied this lipstick on the next day itself because I loved it so much! πŸ˜‰

Ozori Volcanic Minerals Vitamin E Face Wash

Ozori - Volcanic Minerals Vitamin E Face Wash (Full Size: Rs. 99)
When I saw the sneak peek email by fab bag, it said a ‘volcanic minerals face wash’. I recently bought and reviewed the Jeju Volcanic Clay Mask by the Faces Shop. While reviewing it, I came across the benefits endowed with volcanic minerals and this is what kept me pumped on seeing what brand’s cleanser we’d be getting. So, Ozori is a completely new brand for me as I haven’t heard about it prior to receiving it in my fab bag. The packaging is very basic and the facial cleanser is red in colour which makes it fun to look at.

Lately, I’m seeing this rage about Vitamin C & E and several brands are coming up with skincare products like serums and cleansers which have one of these vitamins. Apart from having vitamin E, Ozori cleanser is also cruelty and paraben free. I’ve used it twice and I feel it’s one of those cleansers which cleanses your skin gently without leaving it dry; as often seen with cleansers which leave behind a squeaky clean skin.


APS Cosmetofood Whitening & Brightening Skin Diet Kit


APS Cosmetofood - 7 Step Kit

APS Cosmetofood Whitening & Brightening Skin Diet Kit (Full Size: Rs. 250)
Last month in my fab bag, I received the exfoliating olive scrub from the brand APS. This time, we have a complete 7 step facial kit which contains steps including cleansing, masking and serum. It is a onetime kit but I have high expectations out of it as the product from the last month managed to impress me. Moreover, APS Cosmetofood products are completely vegan and they are endowed with only certified organic ingredients. It’s definitely a good skincare diet wherein you rejuvenate the skin without the use of chemicals. I’ve reserved this kit exclusively for a weekend when I’d sit down to do an elaborate skincare. πŸ˜‰


Aaryanveda Hair Serum


Aaryanveda Hair Serum - Pump Dispenser

Aaryanveda Hair Serum (Full Size: Rs. 90)
For a second, I assumed it’s a sample bottle of the Streax walnut serum as it has the same golden packaging, although the pump is completely white in this case. Aaryanveda is again a new brand for me and it’s a great pick for the monsoon season as I’ve often seen my hair go frizzy like a grizzly bear. However, since I have straight and thin hair, I avoid applying a serum as it sometimes softens my hair a little too much and weighing down of the tresses is another concern of mine. This walnut-enriched serum claims to polish and smooth the hair, leaving it soft and silky. The fragrance of this serum is hard to explain but it gives off faint citrusy and heavier notes of sweet chocolate, identical to Mcaffeine’s chocolate face mask. 


Fem Anti Darkening Hair Removal Cream - Gold

Fem Anti Darkening Hair Removal Cream Gold (Rs. 58 for 30 grams)
Fem is a well acquainted brand in the Indian market. I’ve used their bleach, particularly for removing the tan from my hands and feet as I don’t use bleach on my face. However, this is the first time when I’d be trying out their hair removal cream. I’m glad that this one is from their anti-darkening range. 


HipHop Cleansing Charcoal Nose Strip

HipHop Cleansing Charcoal Nose Strips (Rs. 30 for 1 strip)
This is a onetime use sample which I would love to try but unfortunately I have a nose piercing which makes it hard to experiment with nose strips. Anyways, I’d try it on someone else in order to see how it works out. Nose strips are a great way of getting rid of black heads, white heads and other gunk of the pores. 

Total Worth of the Product: INR 1,322
Total Savings: Approximately INR 723

And that’s about it for today!
What if your favourite product in this month’s Fab Bag?

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…
