Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
February passed away so quickly. On the first day of March, I came back home from work to a parcel which was sitting proudly on to the computer table, waiting for me to unbox it ASAP! This, I believe is the fourth month wherein I’ve consistently received the Fab Bag courier on day 1 of the month. To be honest, I’m quite happy about it. It feels as if someone is putting their time and effort to pamper me from the work schedule 😊. Sitting 9 to 6 in front of laptop screens, scribbling content can be quite challenging, particularly for a person like me who has been working from home.
Any sort of surprises, helps me in breaking the monotony of the everyday schedule. Being an INTJ personality type, I fail to find comfort amidst a repetitive routine. Anyways, so when I opened my parcel, I noticed two products were kept outside. The pouch or bag of the month was something that I’d go and shell my money onto if it would be lying into the Forever21 racks. Although, you might not be able to store a lot of makeup inside it, but it’s definitely classy and elegant. Till date, I have so many Fab Bag pouches which I use for storage purposes. Ironically, I don’t use those which are my favourites because I want to save them for a perfect occasion.
Let’s begin with the unboxing -
Theme of the Month: The Game Changer
This month, there are a total of 5 colours available and the one that I received is silver. The texture of the bag is somewhat look-alike PU leather material and it’s quite sleek and elegant. In terms of storage, you might not be able to keep a lot of stuff inside, which is why two of the products were placed outside the bag. There are no patterns or designs running on the bag, it’s quite plain but the reflective texture make them resemble the holographic bags. I personally love the bag but I’m still sceptical as to what I should store inside it. Let me know if you have any suggestions. 😉

There were so many tempting makeup products available that I took so much time for finalizing what to pick up. Finally, I settled for Brown Crown liquid lipstick simply for the fact that currently, I’ve been hunting for lip colours that are unusual and those which I don’t own already in my vanity. I have abundance of pinks, browns and reds but this one is a unique dark brown shade which I’m so eager to try out. On scrutinizing, you would see minute flakes of glitter in it which evades as soon as you apply it on your lips and it begins to set matte. The shade speaks the word GOTHIC to me and before trying a black shade, probably a dark brown would be better. From the range of Smudge Me Not Liquid lipsticks, this one is my second lip colour. I’m pretty much a fan of their texture and longevity so there is no looking back. Earlier I forget to mention it, this lipstick is the Star Product of the Month!
I’ve tried Nelf products some time back. In fact, I’ve also reviewed their Kiss Proof Professional Liquid lipsticks which were not that great as per their price point. Last month, I received their HD primer in fab-bag which is quite good. The shade that I got is ‘sizzling blue’. I’m not happy with the fact this eyeliner pencil has no retraceable packaging; neither we got a sharpener along with it. Of course, sharpening has its drawbacks also. Moreover, I wish they have unique product names instead of picking up the term ‘collosal’ which is associated with a lot of other Indian beauty brands. Lastly, the pigmentation is decent but the longevity is quite poor. The swatch that I tried literally got wiped off without any hassle. For eye makeup, I prefer mine to be smudge-proof, if not waterproof. Probably, this can be used for an everyday basis or you might need some eyeshadow to set the creaminess of the eyeliner in place.
When I initially saw the tube of this cleanser, I assumed it’s going to be a peel-off charcoal face pack. I’ve been stocking upon charcoal products since last summer. Although, charcoal products can be extremely drying on to the skin, this one leaves the skin soft. I have only tried it once and as such there’s nothing which I didn’t like about it. Once I empty out my other facial cleansers, I’d definitely start using this on a regular basis. Probably, I should keep it as a resort for the upcoming humid weather.
I’m not really a fan of samples because I hardly use them and generally, they end up lying at some corner of my house, completed neglected. I’ve never heard the brand Kara Scentric before but on sniffing the sample, I really liked its fragrance. This might go into my office bag in case I want to feel extra special. In collaboration with Kara Scentric, Fab Bag team got its buyers a discount of 20%. I’m yet to make up mind if I want to order a full sized perfume from this brand. Once I start using it, maybe I’d develop a clear idea.
Ayorma Deep Exfoliator
If I remember it right, we did receive a sample size sunscreen or cream from this brand some time in past. Also, last month there was an exfoliator from Tvakh which I love lately! This one is a bonus product and you may receive a different product. The fragrance is refreshing and quite pleasant. The exfoliating granules are minute and it can work well on combination to oily skin but avoid it in case you have a few pimples emerging here and there.
