It’s that time of the month again when a courier filled with surprises reaches my door and my skincare and makeup collection feels proud to add another family member.

Nonetheless, there are days when I keep myself going in life by looking forward to trying out new things. #BreakingTheMonotony

About the ‘Festive Fusion October Fab Bag’:
"Festive frenzy? We're here to add value to your beauty routine with an amalgamation of fine Makeup & Beauty Essentials inside this month’s Fab Bag."
The Fab Bag Pouch:
Coinciding with the month full of festivities, the October 2019 Fab Bag comes in a beautiful golden colour that can be flaunted as a clutch too. Though most of the bag is made with a basic golden material, the jazzy texture detail near the zip closure and left corner makes it look remarkable! It looked amazing with the outfit that I wore for the pictures of this blog post as well (go grab your outfit inspiration from it!) 😉
Products in October 2019 Fab Bag:
DISGUISE Feather Light Liquid Lip Cream - Relaxed Mocha [Full Size: INR 700]
My love for lipsticks is well known to people who meet me on a regular basis or read my blog posts. I may have tons of lipsticks in the same hue but I’d end up falling in love with a new lipstick even if it just has a minor shade difference. Therefore, seeing a new lipstick in Fab Bag makes my heart skip a beat. If I remember it correctly, we received the same lipstick in the month of June this year and in that post I did mention how much I love the formulation of this particular lipstick (You can check that blog post HERE). However, now that I have a long term experience of this lipstick I’d like to elaborate about what makes me pick this shade often on a regular basis.
First and foremost, DISGUISE Feather Light Liquid Lip Cream comes in a test-tube look-alike packaging and a soothing mint cap. The wand of this lipstick is not too stiff or wobbly, which makes lipstick application as smooth as a cakewalk. Also, the formulation of this lipstick is superb, especially for this transitional weather when your lips would feel dry every now and then. It sets into soft matte texture like those Miss Claire Lip Creams that do not tug your lips or settle into the fine lines. In short, it’s an amazing lipstick! But because I received the same shade this time as well, i.e. Relaxed Mocha, I might gift this one to my sister.
SUGAR Contour De Force Mini Highlighter - 03 Metal Medal [INR 399 for 4 grams]
Getting a SUGAR makeup product always makes Fab Bag subscribers quite happy and I’m one of those subscribers as well. Anything from the brand adds on to my makeup vanity and I never even think of giving it away. This can be accredited to the quality that Sugar Cosmetics caters to its users. The Sugar Contour De Force Mini Highlighter is lightweight, convenient to use and travel-friendly, which makes it feasible for being taken to work or college on an everyday basis. The highlighter shade that I got, i.e. 03 Metal Medal is a finely milled highlighter with golden undertone. It is best suited for this time of the year when we have so many Indian festivals coming up. It would look immensely well with your ethnic outfits for sure!
Major Crush Nail Lacquer - From Chocolate Amour Collection [Full Size: INR 249]
Fall is almost here and we are transitioning towards winters. This calls for flaunting all the dark nail paint and lipstick shades. Major Crush Nail Lacquer in the shade 123 from the Chocolate Amour Collection is a chocolate brown colour. I received this nail paint in the month of February this year but I’m not sure if it’s the same shade or different. In case it turns out to be the same, I’d probably end up giving this away. However, receiving a nail paint always makes me happy because I like to change mine every other week. 😊
The Nature’s Co Lemongrass Foot Spray [INR 285 for 50 ml]
Though I’m a beauty blogger, I’ve never really heard of a foot spray. Therefore, on receiving the Nature’s Co Lemongrass Foot Spray, the first thing I did was read the label to understand how it is used. As it can be spritzed on the feet after a tiring day, I’m definitely saving it for days when I return home after wearing heels from a shoot or blogger event. It can also save you from the hassle of warming the water, adding bathing salt and soaking your feet for long!
Urvija Lavender & Mint Facial Spray - Lavender [INR 120 for 50 ml]
Until a long time, I wasn’t into toners or facial mists. However, that changed recently for good. As a result, I’m almost out of most of my facial mists except the Plum one from their Green Tea collection. Facial mists are multi-purpose products that soothe inflamed skin and can also be used on top of a foundation to eradicate dry patches. The Urvija Lavender & Mint Facial Spray has a light fragrance that reminds me of the Lavender Essential Oil that I had from the brand Aroma Magic. It has a water-like consistently and leaves no greasiness whatsoever. Also, the product is quite decently priced, so probably a lot of the people would end up purchasing this mist once their first bottles are over.
Bellapierre Cosmetics Milk Cleansing Face Wash [Full Size: INR 399]
When I tried out the Bellapierre Cosmetics Milk Cleansing Face Wash, I liked how it glided onto the skin and lathered not heavily but decently. It felt soft between the fingers and took off all the non-waterproof makeup in a single go. However, on its own, it failed in removing my liquid lipstick and mascara completely. But that’s how most of the cleansers work! For taking out waterproof makeup, you do need to go through the route of double cleansing. All I have to say about this particular product is that it does its job pretty well and leaves no greasiness post-cleansing. 😃
