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. 

On My Lips (#LOTD) - Smudge Me Not in "Merlot Glow"

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! 😂😂

Makeup Product - 062 Peacher Perfect

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. 

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.

Silver Face Gel

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

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.

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. 

APS Olive Exfoliating Scrub

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!

Sugar Ace of Face Foundation Stick in 25 Macchiato - Swatches & Review

Shedding away all my laziness 😂😂
Here I am today, scribbling a blog post on one of my recent makeup purchases from the brand Sugar Cosmetics. In case you guys don’t know, I was awestruck by makeup hoarding addiction again and ended up buying more than what I initially intended. Although I had my eyes glued on their Smudge Me Not Lipstick in the shade Wine & Shine (Sangria), I also managed to pick up their much-hyped Ace of Face Foundation Stick! This particularly base product was first launched with 6 shades but now they have introduced 22 shades that will go absolutely well with almost all Indian skin tone. And no, that isn’t just a false claim like another well known Indian brand which we’ve seen since our childhood.
Let’s dive into the review without any digressions!

MamaEarth: Shampoo + Conditioner Review | Happy Heads & No More Tangles

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
We all love our tresses! In order to sustain a healthy crown of hair, we keep on hunting for homemade DIY recipes or a shampoo that resolves the prolonged hair fall problem. Is it merely me who has been seeing a lot of hair fall since a year or two? I’ve altered my shampoo to figure out what is the actual cause for the same and it appears as if the inherent genes and my eating pattern is what causes a lot of shedding of hair. Recently, I tried the Mamaearth’s shampoo and conditioner duo which I believe was the part of their Anti-Hair Fall kit which is priced at INR 999. The kit intrigued me a lot and I’m glad I got to try out two products from that kit so that I don’t end up spending a thousand bucks. If you’re wondering how these products fared for me, stay tuned and keep on reading!

Exploring A World Within: Ethnic Outfit Ideas - OOTD - Monsoon Diaries

"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."
Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
When I started my journey as a blogger, I shied away from being captured in pictures. For some odd reason, I was always missing from school pictures, group pictures and a lot of other pictures. On top of that, my introvert personality stopped me from doing outfit posts on a regular basis. So until now, majority of my blog pictures revolved around flatlays and product photography. #ComfortZoneAtItsBest 😂

In fact, my phone’s memory contains more pictures of flatlays than it has of me. This is also one of the reasons why my WhatsApp DP stays without a picture. P.s. no, I haven't blocked you 🙈 

Now that I feel that I’ve improved a lot in terms of my flatlay photography, I incurred a realization that aesthetics of picture touches a top notch when there’s human element incorporated. Not necessarily my face but probably my hand, hair …
