today am reviewing a product, the only product i have from faces canada, till date that i loathe..
without blabbering,lets move on to the review!

Price: : 399 INR

my view on the product:
I bought this thinyg from fashion and you and this is the worst choice i had ever made ;p
not that the product is bad, but the color is not just right on me...All the qualities, package etc etc are just pakka just like any other faces if u like the color, go buy it..
I dint find a swatch, so just ordered the color blindly on F n U...


  • matte matte matte
  • long stay 5-6 hours
  • despite being matte,it doesnt dry your lips
  • pretty doe foot applicator
  • highly pigmented
  • non transferrable..;)))a hi 5 for it;))


  • gloss lovers will not love it
  • i doesn't suit me(he he he e..i know its unfair to put it here, but just for the zest of it, i did  ;p)

Overall verdict:

i dunno but i dont like it..its the same color that is between  my lips and my face ,when its red!!..doesnt lok good on if u r a dusky skinned beauty, don't buy it..fair and reallllllllllly fair gals, this shade is ur cup of cake..but i just cant wait to lay my hands on the other colors

I would rate it a 9/10 as a product but a 2/10 on me;(((((((((((((((((((
(but what will the poor thing do..its my bad selection;(()

The best budget compact - Revlon Touch and Glow Moisturising compact!

Hey gals..
Hope u r all doing great...
Just like i promised ,here i'm with the review on the best compact i had ever used...Revlon Touch and Glow Moisturising compact!

Cost: 390 INR

What the Company sez:

A moisturising face powder that smoothens, silkens, evens out your skin tone.use on bare skin or over make up for a natural finish that lasts..stay color true, even on oily skin.

Key ingredients : talc, fragrance and titanium dioxide

Shades available: Natural Matte, Ivory Matte, Golden Matte and Rose Matte

My take on the product:

i'm not a foundation gal and i use it on top of my sunscreen and lacto calamine, and believe me gals, it gives ample coverage on its own..And on top of a foundation( i use lakme 9 to 5) , it kinda makes you look flawless...and the best part of this compact is the fact that, it will never ever make u look chalky or dry your skin or make u look unnatural how many times ever you layer it;provided you get the ideal shade and i think thats what moisturising mean in "moisturising compact"..i have ivory matte and i'm so so happy with it...and it stays for 3-4 hours on my combination skin and all i have to do is just touch up on the t zone..

  • moisturizing
  • do not chalk
  • stays for 4-5 hours
  • good puff and mirror with it
  • natural look
  • great coverage even when used on bare skin
  • photographs well
  • lives upto all its claims
  • no spf
  • a bit pricey
  • bad packaging(not sturdy)
  • transfers when u start sweating;p
Overall verdict:

I'd rate it a 9/10( -1 for bad unsturdy packaging and no spf)

Take care gals..

Love you all!

my take on Nature's Brilliance pomegranate cream lip gloss in prim rose : 
its such a nice creamy opaque gloss that adds beauty to your lips and stays for a healthy 4 hours without eating and drinking.And also its available in a great range of colours and keeps youtr lips safe and sweet.

                                          oops, sorry ,am new to fotography;p

Overall Verdict:

 gals, go for it!

i would give it a 10/10

L’Oréal Contour Khol - Jet Black 131 Review!

Hope everyone's great and had a fun sunday;))
As indians, we have a dual obsession over kohls..the two being culture and beauty sake...
As a child i always grew up to believe that kohl makes me as prettier as thestars on TV..phew;-)
Even now I'm fascinatedc by the elegance and attraction it adds to one's personality..
But, as we all know, its a double edged sword...u look beautiful as u apply it but can end up panda eyed when it smudges especicially in this humid hot indian climate..eww;(
So i hav been eternally hunting for an eye kohl that is jet black, can be used on waterline and on the lids, smudge proof..etc..etc..too much to expect naaa?
But one day, i found this beauty,L’Oréal Contour Kohl - Jet Black 131, and gals, am not at all disappointed!



With its new innovative formula combining oil and wax, Contour Khôl softly glides over the eyelid allowing you to achieve a long-lasting and intense colour result.
You can use Contour Khôl on the inside or outside of the eyelid to draw attention to your eyes and achieve a long-lasting and intense colour result.

My opinion:

It definitely lives upto its claims...jet black as the name, the pencil is sharpenable, glides on like a dream, is not too fragile to break on sharpening, stays for a good 3-4 hours without smudging or disappearing and with the same intensty as it was when applied..


  • jet black
  • smudge proof
  • water resistant
  • use inside and outside the waterline;P
  • removed easily with any standard make up  remover
  • a variety of colors available
  • reasonable price;)
  • ophthalmologically tested


might smudge after vigorous rubbing or after aroung 4 hours in an oily lid like mine

                                           jet black, isn't it, in varying thickness but one swipe each
Final Verdict: 

I rate it a 7.5 on 10

khol lovers, what are you waiting for...go grab it for, you'll not regreat a bit;)

NYX round lipstick in Tea rose and its close dupe;)

Hiiiiiiiii all..
Hope u r all eagerly awaiting the weekend just like me;P
I recently bought some lipsticks and wanted to review them for u guys!
One of them is the most hyped lipstick among bloggers: nyx tea rose..
As we all know that all nyx lipsticks are well known for its creaminess, full coverage and moisturisation, this one is no less too..


  • creamy
  • moisturising
  • I guess it will give full coverage for people with pigmented lips
  • Great number of shades
  • Tea rose is a beautiful rose which will suit fair and medium skinned..

in artificial light(above)

                                                  swatches in day light         

poor staying power( 3-4 hours) which is not a problem with me;)))

Overall, its a great lipstick to invest in..
And if u gals are not aware, these lipsticks are available on with free shipping and COD..
Great isn't it?

My take:

It is a must have...i'll say MUST HAVE in all fair and wheatish gal's vanity case..

And now for the dupe, gals..
Oriflame's vintage rose is almost the same shade as that of tea rose,..
when u see separately, vintage rose may look a tad darker but on my lips, they are almost the same..
also, its not as creamy as nyx tea rose and needs 2 or 3 swipes to get the same color and full coverage..

Now, lets see the swatches....
                     oriflame vintage rose  swatched twice above and nyx tea rose with just one swatch below

                                           (1st pic; artificial light, 2nd one: natural light)
Nyx :R, Oriflame:L

Pretty close, aren't they?
So, if u cannot access tea rose, go in for vintage rose..he...he...
Tke care girlies;)))

All about oral contraception and YASMIN: the oral contraceptive pill in vogue!

Oral contraception & Review on yasmin-an oral contraceptive pill!
Ladies and gals..
I’m gona write about an ocp called yasmin..
Most of us would have used a pill in some part of our life, not only as a contraception,but also could be for menorrhagia(excessive bleeding), irregular or no periods or even for dysmenorrhia..
the other indications of ocp are:
1. treatment of severe acne
2. pre menstrual syndrome
4.irregular menses

And whats the most worrisome issue regarding using pills? gaining weight, rite?

I got married 6 months back and since both us are doctors were quite free to talk of contraception and as usual we decided on taking pills, ovral was my choice since it has the least amount of estrogen in it and is the most effective contraception available easily with the least of side effects..
Before I talk further, let me tell u about the advantages and disadvantages of pills

·         Highly effective reversible contraception. .
·         Menstrual cycle regulationReduce menstrual cramps. 
·          Decreased risk of iron deficiency (anemia).
·          Reduce the risk of ovarian cysts. ).
·         Protection against pelvic inflammatory disease.
·         Can improve acne.
·         Reduces the risk of symptomatic endometriosis. 
·          Improves fibrocystic breasts...
·         Helps prevent osteoporosis
·         Does not affect future fertility
·         Safe for many women.

·          Headaches. Headaches may start in women who have not previously had headaches, or can get worse in those who do.
·         Depression. Depression (sometimes severe) and other mood changes may occur.
·         Nausea and vomiting. This side effect usually goes away after the first few months of use or can be prevented by taking the pill with a meal.
·         Breast tenderness.
·         Breakthrough bleeding or spotting
·         Weight gain. Some women report slight weight gain. Weight gain is often caused by fluid retention or estrogen-induced fat deposits in the thighs, hips, and breasts the androgenic effects from the progestins
·         Chloasma (spotty darkening of the skin on the face).  I
·         nteractions. Birth control pills may not be as effective if you are taking certain medications. Some antibiotics, antifungals, anticonvulsants, herbs like St. John's Wort, can change the amount of the contraceptive hormones absorbed by the stomach and the metabolism of these hormones.
·         Not suitable for everyone. Some women should not take pills if they have specific health conditions, including some types of diabetes, liver disease, cardiovascular disease. Women with risk factors for heart disease, such as those with high blood pressure or who are obese, are also at higher risk when on the Pill.
·         Sexually transmitted diseases. 
·          Must be taken every day. 
·         Very rare are side effects like heart attack, stroke, clots etc which are now obsolete due to very low content of estrogen and progesterone in current day pills!!

Gals now tell me the most dreaded of all, it’s the weight gain..
Am I rite? Atleast for me it was..i was surprised that my weight popped from 53 to 56 in 3 months…I went berserk but attributed it to post marriage elements,,but the weight started to raise for the next qmonth too and I found ovral to be the convict..
Then I wanted to try this yasmin[the newer ocp in the market

It has drospirenone which is also a mild anti androgen which will kind of make u more prettier, less oily, less pimple..if u know what I mean?( I don’t want to make it complicated)

Yasmin not only prevents pregnancy, but also helps with a wide range of menstrual and female puberty difficulties. One benefit of Yasmin is that it helps reduce the effects of menstruation. Many women have reported that they feel less moody during their menstrual cycle and that they experience less bloating and cramping. Yasmin also helps with female puberty difficulties such as mild acne. Yasmin has been shown to decrease breakouts in many women. Additional benefits for Yasmin include less water retention and less premenstrual weight gain..

Isn’t it cool?..
And gals, I have lost my weight , from 56.5 to a cook 54 in 3 months..without exercise or diet!!
And and…no pimples or break outs…
So I thot I will share with my fellas..
The only problems with yasmin I found is less availability and a bit expensive(around 350 INR where as ovral was 85 INR) .
But its worth it.
I also want to warn u guys that some ladies have reported weight gain with it..wats the big deal yaar, any ocp will..but if its gona work on u, why not try..
Always consult a gynec before using it, and ladies above 35( as i have mentioned before that there is an increased tendency for increased blood clotting in any pills but its slightly higher than the conventional pills in yasmin;(( ), its better to avoid it pleeease!
I’ll rate it 4/5

For all gals who are on pills either for contraceptipon or PCOS, ormenstrual problems, yasmin is a good choice, provided u get ur gynec u all...

And yes i want to know, if u want health issues like this being discussed in my blog..please say so!
