I recently got tagged to do this challenge by the sweet sweet Charlotte of Makeup By Candlelight. The challenge requires me to do a full face of makeup using only 5 products.

The rules of this tag/challenge are :
  • Use only 5 products to create a complete makeup look
  • Each different product counts as 1 product. Multipurpose products count as 1 product, such as Benetint, Bombshell the One Stick, Nars Multipurpose Stick. 
  • No palettes are allowed. No trios, quads or multi-shade palettes.
  • Tag Five others to complete the Face Five Challenge
So lets get on with it....

Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil | Hair Therapy DIY Hair Mask | Pictorial



Today I was having a major bad hair day. Total crisis. Nothing worked. It was just yesterday that I had washed my hair. So I knew that simply shampooing them again won't be enough. So I said to myself, why not try a DIY hair mask...!! Went online, typed "DIY hair mask+damaged+dry hair" and wallah!!

Of Course I had to share my experience with you guys in this quick pictorial...so here it is!!

 Disclaimer - These products are my own, and were not sent. I will mention (link them) from whichever website(s) I bought them from.


Also, I have really bad hair, so many of you might not be impressed by the results I got. But you have to trust me guys, that result, for me, is great :P

It has been two/three months since the release of  L'Oreal Fresh Dust Tecni Art Dry Shampoo. This, as ridiculous as it sounds, is the first dry shampoo to be officially launched in India. We do get Tony & Guy, Label M, Schwarzkopf and Lush, but only at imported prices (i.e 2-3 times the actual cost) and only if it is your lucky day.

Soulflower Pure Argan Oil Review Swatch & Info.




Bought online from Flipkart.com

Argan Oil, this "magical" oil from Morocco, also known as liquid-gold and ,for obvious reasons, Moroccan Oil, took the centerstage of the world of skincare and beauty around 2 years ago. The number of makeup and skincare products on the US market with argan oil as an ingredient increased from just two in 2007 to over a hundred  by 2011.

I first came across this name while watching a very popular YouTube Vlogger use Josie Maran's Argan Oil Serum while prepping up her skin. Of Course, what followed next was me surfing through websites looking up articles about this magical potion. As usual, everyone was on this bandwagon, crowning Argan Oil as the discovery of the millennia in the world of beauty and skincare.
