What’s in my Makeup Kit: Back to College Edition

Hello girls,

Yesterday night, it rained here in Delhi. And this morning, I just wanna rush to take a bath as its gone back to being humid. Unfortunately, this weather is especially allotted to be the Back to College Season. For some of you, it’s gonna be exciting as schools were a metaphor of restrictions. School uniforms, no nail paint, strict regulations, etc. The other remaining, it’s again going to get all monotonous. I have begun to detest this semester as its comparatively longer and shifting classes plus travelling in this weather seriously melts away the beautiful you. My biggest concern is about wearing jeans in the morning post baths; I just don’t feel comfortable that way in summers; extra sensitive perhaps. *LOL*

Every girl is accompanied to college or work place along with her small vanity kit which confidently smirks and says “I got your back girl”. *WINK* Be it minimalistic, containing kajal and tinted lip balm or if you are while leaving off your doors like- “What if I end up meeting a friend post college hours and I can’t do just with a compact and I wanna pack this lip color, and this; oh how can I leave this one as well?

So without further adieu, let’s jump into the post and see what really can go down in there for creating a useful makeup kit. Also, it’s not necessary that you’d pack these all; you can simply recreate it as per your choice.

 BB/CC cream
Foundation is definitely not everyday thing for most of us and when you’ve got a heck lot of classes for the day; you’d rather spend few extra minutes to your precious sleep than apply moisturizer plus a foundation. BB creams with one go eliminate dryness and evens out the complexion. Fortunately, they blur out scars and you can leave off your face appear imperfect making it evident that you don’t wanna attend a wedding soon afterwards. hahaha
My pick- <Spawake BB Cream, Ponds BB cream or Garnier BB cream>

Compact powder
I’ve been to Delhi University and travelling within Metro or DTC busses gets you drenched into sweat before you’ve marched into the gates of the college. Compact powder removes shine and sweat of the face and makes it matte.
< Maybelline Clear Glow Compact or Superfresh White Compact>

Eyeliner/Kajal pencil
Kajal remains the first makeup item that we’ve delved into since our younger days. Twist up kajal/ eyeliner pencil can be used on the waterline as well as for tight lining the upper lid.
< Lotus ColorKick Kajal or Faces Magnetic Eyes Kajal>

Eyebrow Pencil
If you’ve got no time for accentuating your features via makeup then you can simply define your eyebrows as it helps in framing up the face.
<Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo>

Blush becomes a necessity for too pale girls as it adds on some colour to their face.
<Maybelline Cheeky Glow in ‘Creamy Cinnamon’>

Lipstick/ lip lacquer
Lipsticks are the coolest part about makeup. Look out for budget friendly lipsticks or lip lacquers and they can also be used as a blush. Summers are all about matte lip colors.
<Incolor Matte me, Miss Claire Soft Matte Cream or Elle 18 Matte lipsticks>

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.…

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask

Bloggers Event: #PoutItRight with Jaquline USA's Lip Pops Matte Lip Tints

Hi Guys Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Last month, I was invited by the team of New U (Dabur subsidiary) on their launch of Lip Pop Matte Tints. I’ve been to their events before and previous one, I presume, was the release of their BB Stroke Nail Enamel.Now they have also incorporated some vibrant matte shades by the name ‘Back2School’. I must warn you to go visit their stores ASAP as this range has a gorgeous mint shade which I’ve never seen amongst affordable Indian brands! 

The event took place in Smoke House Deli at DLF Place Mall Saket (Delhi) in the afternoon. The place had an amazing decor with quirky walls and an interplay of white and grey theme running everywhere. With around 50 bloggers, we got to try out different shades of Lip Pops and nail lacquers that were recently launched in the New U store. I was so excited that I got rid of my texture nail paint then & there and tried the shades that were placed at the counter. 

The Lip Pops Matte Lip Tints are available in …
