Hello Everyone,

I am reviewing a foundation which I have been using these days. Maybelline has recently launched its Fit Me Matte + Poreless range in India which has a  Foundation (6 shades available), Concealer  (3 shades available), Pressed Powder (4 shades available) and a Blush (3 shades available). All these products are available at Nykaa.com
I was excited to try these so got Matte + Poreless Foundation from this range in the shade 310 Sun Beige which was nearest to my skin tone.

Overview
Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless is a medium coverage foundation available in 6 shades that are made to fit your skin tone. It gives a seamless matte finish and has genius blurring micro powder which helps in erasing pores. 

Price & Quantity
 Rs. 525/- for 30ml

My Experience 
I got this foundation from Beauty Center Khar at around 480/- and have been using it from the past 10 days. It comes in a glass bottle with a plastic black pull-off cap. I really prefer foundations with pump dispenser which ensures wastage of the product. The texture is neither too runny nor thick so it doesn't give a cakey look. I opted for the shade Sun Beige which is slightly darker for my skin tone because I can only find this shade for my Medium tone (yellow undertone) skin. It is a medium coverage foundation which is pretty buildable. One thing I really liked is it sets really fast on the skin and adapts the natural skin tone which is great. It does provide a matte finish to the skin but since it is winters I apply a layer of moisturizer beneath this foundation so that it blends well. I have a dry skin and my skin feels patchy after 2-3 hours of its application.
Overall it is a good everyday foundation which is not heavy on skin and perfect for oily skin. 

Pros
1. Provides medium coverage
2. Great for Oily and Combination skin type
3. Blends really well
4. Covers blemishes and spots
5. Looks natural on skin
6. Affordable

Cons
1. Limited shades for medium tone
2. Should have come with a pump dispenser or a spatula

Repurchase?
I will probably like to try the Natural Buff shade (cool tone) in this range and look how it goes with my skin 

Recommend?
I would recommend it to oil skin and combination skin people. People with dry skin should exfoliate and moisturize their skin well before applying it.

Overall Rating
3.5/5

Coconut Oil,

The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil

Hello Everyone, 

Today I'm reviewing a product which is a must have thing for winters. Many of us tend to experience flaky, dry and frizzy hair during this season. My hair gets very dry and lifeless during winters which leads to the problem of hair fall. Let me introduce you with the product that has solved my problem.


Overview: The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil


The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil is a virgin coconut hair oil which is light weight, non-sticky and nourishing oil for all hair types. It comes in a see through plastic bottle with a flip cap which is not fragile or loose. The best thing is that it is a virgin coconut oil which is not being processed, doesn't contain silicons or artificial colorants.

Price & Quantity
Rs. 695/- for 200 ml


My Experience
I have been using this oil from the past 3 months regularly and  it is helped me to maintain my hair really well. I generally apply it twice a week. and mix  few drops of castor oil as well while applying this onto my scalp. It rinses out well and doesn't leaves your hair greasy after wash. One bottle of 200ml would suffice for 2-3 months if you are using it regularly like me. It smells like a cocoa butter instead of coconut which is strange but I don't mind it until and unless it does its work.


Ingredient List




Pros 
1. Virgin Coconut Hair Oil
2. Light weight and non-sticky
3. Washes off well
4. Prevents Hair Fall
5. Makes hair healthy and manageable after wash

Cons
1. Expensive

Repurchase?
Yes, this is my second bottle already.

Recommend?
I would definitely recommend it to people who has dry and dull hair. Also for those who has always been a devoted coconut oil users and doesn't wish to try any other variants.

Overall Rating 
4/5

Hello Everyone,

It feels so good to write these two words!

Back to Blogging + Birthday Giveaway



As the Title says, Yes I am back to blogging which I discontinued because of my studies. Even though I always followed my love for cosmetics and skin care, I wasn't getting time to review them because an MBA life didn't gave me that freedom. You all know how much time and creativity it requires to put up a blog post, produce quality content, bringing up perfect photos, try and test products, day after day which requires time. Therefore at that point of time I decided to focus on my studies and pursue my passion for writing and reviewing products once it is completed. Now a few days away from my convocation, I feel I can devote enough time to my interest and sheer joy of writing. I have been working since December to restart my blog and what can be the best way to start with, Birthday! Today I have completed 26 years of my life and I feel great to start up with what I always loved!


I am completely thrilled to be back to blogging on my birthday and to celebrate these two occasion here a Giveaway (For Indian Residents Only) for you all! I am giving Two Kama Ayurveda Rose and Jasmine Face Care Gift Boxes to all you lovely ladies!
