Mascaras
My top 3



1. Bourjois Volume Clubbing Ultra Black Mascara(Rs.450) - This is, by far, the best mascara I've ever used. If you want volume without the clumps, worry about smudges, and have sensitive watery eyes, especially when you're out partying all night, then this is THE ONE. The brush is quite big, so it'll take some practice to manoeuvre with it.





2. Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara(Rs.610) - This mascara really gives the said "false lash effect" and you can layer as many coats as you want when it's still wet. Sometimes it really feels like I've got falsies on when I blink. The brush is easy to handle too













3. Maybelline Lash Stylist Mascara - You can't go wrong with this one because of the comb-like brush and you get just the right amount of volume and length. The comb has quite pointy bristles so you have to be careful not to prick your eyes while applying, as it happened with me many times. Pfff!!! But you'll forget about these occasional pricks once you see the results. When I used this, some people have asked me if I was wearing false lashes. 
***Found out after I had already posted this that it is discontinued T_T



Tip: Always curl your lashes before applying mascara. This makes it easier for you to get the roots and curled lashes appear longer which really opens up the eyes. And if you want to apply more than one coat, don't let your lashes dry before you apply more coats and it's better to do one eye at a time.

L'oreal Color Riche Shine Gelee Review








L'oreal has launched these jelly-like lippies in India. I first saw the ad for these in the August issue of Vogue and I couldn't wait to get my hands on one. They're made with royal jelly and 10 essential nutrients.


It's available in 11 shades. I got 200-Berry Rose, which is the same shade as Sonam's in the ad. It comes out a pale mauve on my lips and not as pink as it looks on her. It's supposed to 'nourish like a balm and shine like a gloss' like the ad says, and it does exactly that. What I like about it is it has more staying power than lip balm and brings out a nice pout. I just don't like the grainy feel of it, you know what I mean? It's like fine sand or baking powder stuck on my glossy lips =/. When I wear it, I avoid locking my lips so I don't feel it. I felt the same with the Glam Shine cream lippers, after I'd already bought 3 shades! Bummer =(
Priced at Rs.650, I wouldn't say it's worth it.
