Product Reviewed: Bois D'Encens
Brand: Giorgio Armani
Product Type: Perfumes
It’s a bitter,dark,woody, spicy fragrance. Moderate sillage. It lasts for more then 10 hours. I’d say it’s quite masculine but in dry down, it gets softer with a subtle sweetness like cedar wood. Don’t apply too much of it,feels smoky and claustrophobic. MRP : 270$ 100ML

Brand: Bobbi Brown
Product Type: Compacts
I have oily skin tone but my undereye area is a bit dry with few wrinkles . This product highlights my undereye wrinkles and doesn’t give a good coverage.I will not call it a concealer because it doesn’t conceal anything . The powder is good but nobody will buy this kit just for the powder . Please don’t waste your money on this product.
Product Reviewed: Melted Chocolate - Chocolate Milkshake
Brand: Too Faced
Product Type: Lipsticks
Melted Chocolate in the shade Chocolate Milkshake is my favourite Day/Night wear shade of lipstick. It goes well with all looks, casual and party- also because all my looks are combination of browns and peach 😬 I love it a lot. The color is young and fun, but also sophisticated. I’m not very fond of bold colours on my lips so this brownish and a little peach colour is perfect for me. Things to love: 1. Smells like melted Chocolate 2. Lasts 5-6 hours 3. There is very subtle shine to the texture ( not glossy, and not matte) Things to be careful: 1) Pack carefully because too much pressure may squeeze some of the color out!

I had read and heard a lot about this one but never really tried it. But once I did, there was no going back. Makes hair smooth and frizz free. It is quite nourishing. I have curly hair, so this also gives a good bounce to my curls. One point where this one fails to get a 5/5 is the weird smell that it has. Overall, if you are like me and like to try different products.. give this one a shot.
Product Reviewed: Lotus Face Treatment Oil
Product Type: Facial Oils
This is a Face Oil from Clarins and is 100% Natural as per the claims of the brand. My skin type is Combination and this one is for Oily/Combination Skin. It’s hydrating. Just 2-3 drops are enough to cover the entire face. I personally use it as part of my night care regime - post cleansing and toning, but I think you can use it all around the day. Regular use makes your skin radiant and it feels healthy too. It’s non sticky and gets easily absorbed within 2-3 minutes of application. Hence, can be used throughout the year. Smells divine. If you like lemon grass, you are going to love this one!
Product Reviewed: Sleep Lavender and Vanilla Body Lotion
Brand: Bath and Body Works
Product Type: Body Lotions
Love this mild floral fragrance! The notes are very relaxing. I like this lotion a lot. And the reason is 1) The lotion is water-based so not very heavy or sticky on the skin. It blends instantly. 2) So so light and easy on the skin. Only drawback is that apart from nice smell and texture, there isn’t much. Not sure if it provides any nourishment at all.

Peach lovers alert, you will enjoy this fragrance! It’s sweet and peachy and stays on for long. Not much nourishment with this lotion, but it’s worth the price just because of the divine fragrance. Definitely worth trying!

Product Type: Lip Care
So I'm not a huge fan of lip balms. They make my lips really sticky and because I've never had a problem of dry lips, didn't really need to use them much. Recently, I've been feeling my lips get chapped in the winter, and all my usual brands like Body Shop and Kama Ayurveda have those really dense, sticky varieties which I never liked. So tried this one instead. First off, it does give you baby lips. That's no lie. Makes lips so smooth on application and gives them this dewey colour, which really does look baby-ish. The one I tried is Raspberry. And tastes and smells good. The crayon applicator is superb and makes application really easy and actually a lot of fun! It lost out on a perfect score for 2 reasons: 1) Does not last long at all! Barely stays on for a couple of hours and then you start feeling the need to re-apply 2) It's got a bit of colour in it. So, if you drink with it on, it's going to leave lipstick like marks on your mug/cup. Eeek.
Product Reviewed: Watt'S Up! Cream Highlighter
Product Type: Highlighters
I love highlighters. They make skin look shiney and fresh. I like the Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter, because of the funky packaging that I find really cool. And also, it’s so easy to carry around. Second I like the color. It’s light champaign gold color that is not very dense so gives your face a very natural sheen! Just a well hydrated look :) Also, one end of the stick has the cream that you can apply directly, and the other side is the sponge for blending. Frankly, I mostly just rub the stick directly on high points of my face and then smudge it with my finger. The sponge somehow isn’t as effective, it rubs the product off instead of blending it. If you dab it too lightly, the product won’t blend. So I just don’t use it anymore. Overall, I would recommend anyone to buy it for: - Subtle daily wear highlighting - Cool packaging that’s fun to carry in the bag
