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)

Swatches

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 crΓ¨me 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 crΓ¨me, 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!

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! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„ I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” πŸ˜‚
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

Fab Bag August 2018 "Own the Glam" Unboxing & Review

Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.
Do you like surprises? I bet, you can’t say no to that.
Surprises are one of those quickest means of breaking the monotonous patterns of our lives. When I come back home from work, finding a courier onto my bedside table is what pumps up my excitement level. And this is exactly what happened on the evening of 31st of July. I kinda had a hunch that I’d receive my fab bag earlier this month, but getting it before the month actually starts, feels amazing! So without more jibber-jabber, let’s begin with the Fab BagAugust 2018unboxing.

Theme of the Month: Own the Glam When I think of the phrase “own the glam”, my mind draws an imagery of a glamorous girl. Therefore, I interlinked the theme with my expectations of having makeup products.
The Process of Product Selection: As expected, we have one of star products from the brand Sugar Cosmetics! 😍😍
Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…

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!
