The Colour Your Way - Fab Bag - Unboxing & Review!

Hi Guys,
Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

And again, it’s that time of the month. No-no, your girl ain’t PMSing my friends. It’s finally the time for unboxing and reviewing Fab Bag for this month. As October is my birthday month, I had high hopes of receiving amazing products. Last month, Fab Bag surprised its subscribers with two makeup products and I was genuinely happy with almost everything that was in the bag. You can check out my take and other details about it - HERE. Setting up high expectations, this month the Fab Bag team came out with sneak peeks of the product on their Instagram page. I was completely spell bounded when I saw that they are giving out 10 mini lipsticks in the October month. As much as I can think, receiving one lipstick is the maximum which I have experienced with other subscription boxes. In fact, in the history of Fab Bag itself, this was happening for the first time.

Now, in case you argue that mini lipsticks sets are given in other subscription boxes too. In my defence, I’d only like to question you about the brand of that lipstick set. Receiving ADS lipsticks don’t count because they are simply dirt cheap. If you have that special inclination for lipsticks, I know you can completely relate to me. We lipstick addict ladies/young girls just want to experiment with different shades. For me personally, gone are the days when I wanna collect lipsticks from the pink(s) and red(s) family. Presently, I feel like to grab shades like blue, black, ashy grey, browns, violets and what not. I know its TMI but I did purchase the Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in the shade ‘Gunmetal’.

After a long lipstick digression, let’s begin the unboxing of the Colour Your Way Fab Bag.

Fab Bag Pouch for this Month 😊

Makeup Selection Process:
To my surprise, this month, I received no makeup selection email and I was pretty relaxed about it because I did observe that the crew of Fab Bag had commented confirming the same on their Instagram post. This was due to the fact that this month’s bag has a mini lipstick set which will be sent across to every subscriber. And since it was a set of lipsticks, you’d definitely end up with at least one shade which will become your absolute favourite. Moreover, as it’s the start of the festive season, you can gift some shades to your mother, sister, cousin, friend and colleague in order to spread some happiness.


The Fab Bag Pouch:
The Fab Bag pouch which I received for this month imparts a handicraft-like appearance. It has a print all over which reminds me of those textile items that have checks made using thin ropes. To cater some contrast, the pouch is divided into two halves by a vertical patch of faux leather which has the usual Fab Bag logo. This bag has ample space inside for storing everyday makeup essentials which you will need throughout the day for re-application. Also, the zip closure makes it all the more convenient for carrying along. It serves well for organizing stuff and converting into an emergency kit.

All the Products in the Colour Your Way Edition!

Products in October 2018 Fab Bag:
For the month of October, there are a total of four products which include three skincare/body care/hair care product and one makeup item. However, the one makeup item itself has 10 mini lipsticks inside, which calls for some celebrations. The Colour Your Way Fab Bag Edition is exclusively dedicated to girls/ladies out there who are extremely fond of lipsticks and they want to fill their world with painted pouts.

Seduction Las Vegas Mini Lipstick Set (Set of 10: INR 499)

Last month, I received the Sugar’s It’s A Pout Time Vivid Mini Lipstick in the shade ‘Browntown Abbey’. When the sneak peeks were released by the Fab Bag team on Instagram, I was wondering if the mini lipstick set will be from the brand Sugar Cosmetics. Upon receiving the subscription box for this month, I was delighted on seeing how the mini lipsticks arrived in a small transparent box which had all the ten lipsticks inside. This box can be re-used for storing jewellery as well. Focusing on the lipsticks, I got the shade numbers - 01, 02, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 16 and 19. When I swatched these lipsticks, I immediate fell in love with opacity, texture and smoothness of these lipsticks. Moreover, majority of these shades are so beautiful that I don’t think there’s any shade which I’d think of giving away to anyone. Overall, this has to be the star product for this month and it makes it worth splurging on Fab Bag for this month.

Tvakh Elixir - Hair Growth Concentrate (INR 400 for 20 ml)

Tvakh Elixir Hair Growth Concentrate

Recently, I have been witnessing a lot of hair fall, that too for no particular reason. In order to compose my constantly worrying heart, I keep chanting the fact “Oh boy, monsoon woes are taking toll onto my hair”. I literally see every other person complaining about the problem. However, it never helps in controlling my consistently falling hair strands. This is why I was immensely happy on seeing the Tvakh Elixir - Hair Growth Concentrate inside the Fab Bag pouch. It comes in a glass bottle with the dropper applicator and majority of the product information are printed on the label. The concentrate can either be used on its own or it can be mixed along with carrier oil. It is infused with 16 unique herbs which help in strengthening the hair. I’m really looking forward to using this and seeing something miraculous.

The Soap Company India Hand-crafted Luxury Soap (Full Size: INR 350)

The Soap Company - Handcrafted Luxury Soap - Vanilla Honeysuckles

To be honest, I don’t really like receiving soaps in subscription boxes as well as PR packages. Soaps never intrigue me much and reviewing them would literally have no aspect to it other than the fragrance part, lather and its performance on the dry skin. So when I saw this product, I wasn’t really impressed until I read the packaging which said “Empowering Women of India”. That’s also when I decided to unbox the sunny yellow box of the Soap Company Hand-crafted luxury soap. In appearance, there’s nothing fancy about this bathing bar. Nonetheless, the fragrance of the soap is quite strong and sweet which makes me sniff it continuously. By the way, I received the variant - Vanilla Honeysuckle.

Bioayurveda Miracle Moisture Toning Face Creme (INR 875 for 20 grams)


bioayurveda-miracle-moisture-toning-face-creme

Bioayurveda is relatively a new brand for me personally. Looking at the size of the crème jar and the price of the product, I was taken aback for a few moments. Then I realised that this stuff must be a premium product with an ayurvedic composition. On trying out the crème, I felt that it is not at all runny and feels a bit heavy for oily skin people. Ideally, it should be used at the night time so that the product assists in the regeneration of facial skin cells. It spreads easily and gets absorbed into the skin with the help of slight massage. As it offers moisturising and toning effects, it will work well as an anti-ageing cream.

Total Worth of the Product: INR 2,124
Total Savings: Approximately INR 1,525!!

And that’s just it for today!

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…
