#Loose curls

Before hitting up to the bed night before going to the college just dampen up your hair. Make small sections of your hair and roll and twist ’em up tightly. Tie them with elastic bands or bobby pins anything you feel is comfortable to sleep with.

In the morning open up the twisted locks and you’re good to go! Finger comb your hair a bit if needed but don’t use a brush!

Yes! Simple n easy! :)

# Topknot

Dealing with a bad hair day??

Well, this one’s probably for you!

Make a ponytail (a high one)

But make sure it doesn’t turn out to look that clumsy!

Now roll over your tresses to make a bun and tie the last end of the hair strand with a bobby pin.

Puff out your hair from the bun. This would give your bun a quite good volume and an illusion of thick hair!

Nice. Isn’t it?

#Like hair accessories ??

Well, this one’s for you then!

Side part your hair and take two strands each from both the sides. Roll each of the strands separately and take them back of your head. Tuck them with your favorite pins.

Try using one pin for each of the 2 strands on the two sides since this would make your style look neater!

This style would be perfect if you have formals for your college since the color on your hair would make your whole outfit look even better!

Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB Cream SPF 15 2

Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB Cream: Olay total effects cream range has always been the talk.I recently got my hands on one of its products which is the Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB cream with SPF 15.
Read further to know if it worked for me.

Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB Cream SPF 15 2

Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB Cream SPF 15 1

Details about Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB Cream SPF 15

What is it?
Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB cream with SPF 15 is a moisturizer cum foundation which gives an instantly brighter and an even-toned skin.
The SolaSheerTM tech with UVA/UVB protection with SPF 15 protects the skin from UV exposure.
Price: INR 799 for 50 grams.

My Experience with Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB Cream SPF 15

Packaging: Olay total effects 7 in one BB cream with SPF 15 comes in an off-white pump bottle with a transparent cap on the top.
It has a golden detailing in the middle. The pump as you can see is black in color. So that makes the product a lot more sturdy and stylish.

Directions for Use: Apply on clean face and neck.

Shade texture and pigmentation: It’s in the shade similar to that of a foundation or a BB cream. It has a very creamy texture. And when I say “very”, I mean it. The cream is a lot more creamy and heavy than required. It’s not that pigmented but works well for a day out. It is more of an anti-aging cream with a touch of foundation.

Fragrance: A mild sophisticated fragrance which stays for a long time.

Staying power: The cream stays for good 6-7 hours. But cannot be worn as a foundation. It should be used when opting for a minimal makeup look.

Experience: I purchased this on the recommendation of my sister.
The cream I must say blends smoothly but it takes about 2-3 minutes to get the perfect finish look. Also, the pump packaging enables easy use without having to deal with any kind of a mess. However, it coats heavily on my skin and gives a cakey look. It’s really thick and creamy to be called a BB cream. The anti-aging factor didn’t work for me since I’m not aging currently :P
Another flaw is that in India it’s available in just one shade whereas in other parts of the world it is available in several other shades as well. Therefore, its a risk and a return deal i.e if it suits your skin tone, it’d work well otherwise not.
I don’t apply a lot of it but it seems as if I’ve applied layer(S) of the cream. It coats heavily on the skin. Also, do not substitute it with a foundation or a BB cream itself since it’s merely a cream and not a Beauty Blemish cream. I’d substitute this with the Colorbar BB cream ‘cuz it’s a lot better and pocket-friendly. It’s just an overrated product with all false claims. It causes a lot of breakouts on my face. Neither it is a full coverage BB cream. Its just feels heavy and cakey but does not provide even half of the coverage.

Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB Cream SPF 15 4

Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB Cream SPF 15

Overall Performance of Olay Total Effects 7 in one BB Cream SPF 15

  1. Super-Blendable.
  2. Refreshing Fragrance.
  3. Keeps skin moisturized.
  4. Attractive Packaging.
  5. Stays for long.
  1. Heavyweight
  2. Causes breakouts.
  3. Available in just one shade, hence would not complement all skin tones.
  4. Does not provide full coverage.
Would I Repurchase and Recommend?

Only if it complements your complexion!
Talking about me, I’m not gonna purchase this.

Maybelline Hypermatte Liquid Liner Review

Starting from the matte lipsticks and now to the matte eyeliners, Maybelline has always come up with something new in the cosmetics market.This Maybelline Hyper matte Liquid Liner  is under scrutiny today.
Please keep reading! ;)

Maybelline Hypermatte Liquid Liner Review

How to Use?

My Experience with the Maybelline Hyper matte Liquid Liner

Since I’m always excited to use the stuff introduced by Maybelline, so there’s no question of missing out this one!
The liner is buttery smooth to glide on and very easy to apply!
A single swatch on my eye and there I am with an intense black look. It makes my eyes look catchy. I need not wait for minutes for letting it dried up either. It settles down soon as I finish applying it.

It stays up to 10 hours in my case. It doesn’t smudge nor messes up. I initially had trouble while applying a winged liner, but I got used to this and now I love the feather touch applicator.

Maybelline Hypermatte Liquid Liner Review 2

Maybelline Hypermatte Liquid Liner Review 3

  1.  Smooth and a Fluent Application.
  2.  Smudge-Proof and Heat-Proof.
  3.  Defines your eyes by giving you a complete black matte finish.
  4.  Easily Available at all the nearby drugstores.
  1. The 24-hour stay factor is vague. The liner begins chipping off soon after 11-12 hours.
  2. 3 grams for 325 bucks is a less quantity.
  3. May react to sensitive skins.
Overall Would I Repurchase and Recommend?

Surely! I’ll go for this again since I find it really easy to apply :)

Maybelline the Colossal Liner Black Review 1

Maybelline Colossal Eyeliner Review

by Vani Saxena

One famous Maybelline eyeliner is the Maybelline Colossal Eyeliner which is easy to apply, smudge free, and gives the complete look of a glossy black liner.

I’m reviewing the product below.

Eyeliners are very important for girls’ everyday make-up. We do not feel complete or proper even if we go a day without Kajal and liners.

When you do not put on your eyeliner people make remarks like, “What happened love? It seems like you have not slept the whole night.”

Moreover, friends are like, “You cried! Didn’t you?”

And we’re like, “NO just NO! It’s just that I have not applied my liner today!”

So basically we’re incomplete without eyeliners!

Finding the right type of liner which will suit up your eyes, which won’t cause irritation or allergy, which’ll stay for long, dry up soon, the one whose applicator is good to put on……….

The list is never-ending.

Maybelline the Colossal Liner Black Review 1


Rs 425

Maybelline the Colossal Liner Black Review 2

How to Use:

The product comes in a compact cylindrical black tube with a 4.2 mm felt tip pen type. Just remove the cap like you do when using a pen and apply the liner to your eyelids making wings (or normal) depends on you! And there you go for a perfect finish eye look. Check out Aakriti’s tutorial to nail a winged eyeliner in 5 minutes!!

Maybelline the Colossal Liner Black Review 3

My Experience with Maybelline Colossal Liner Black

It is the perfect antidote for my eyeliner woes! I got this liner since I knew that sketch liner has a really nice utility and they have cool applicators. And this turned out to be absolutely true! Is it amazing?

It has a black opaque color though you’ll have to apply two swatches of it. Doesn’t flake off or crumble during the day, even if I rub my eyes.

It stays for almost 7 hours and is completely waterproof. It’s too easy to apply this to your eyes. Dries up instantly so you need not to wait for even a mild second keeping your eyes closed or something. Keep one thing in mind though. Any sketch pen liner will not last you beyond 2 months!! Use maximum at this time!!!

Pros :
  1. Hassle – free application.
  2. Smudge – free and Waterproof.
  3. Gentle on sensitive eyes. Causes no irritation.
  4. Gives a Satin touch (between matte to glossy)
  1. Oily-skinned beauties would not like this since it gets rubbed off soon.
  2. 425 bucks may seem exorbitant on the other hand.
Overall Would I repurchase and recommend?

A definite must have in your makeup kit if you don’t have oily lids!! Conclusively, I’ll go for this product again since I’m not an expert in applying eyeliner and many times I spoil my eyes up but with this thing, I think my problem is solved. I need not wait for it to dry either. And definitely recommended! Get your hands on this for sure if you’re okay with the cons!

Price: Rs 899

Faces Ultime Pro Perfecting Primer 1

My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Perfecting Primer

Packaging: Comes in a subtle and a sophisticated packaging. There are a black tube and a sturdy metallic cap on the top. The product squeezes out effortlessly from the nozzle that it has. The packaging is very handy and cute.

Shade, Texture, and Consistency: Quite a creamy consistency I must say that mattifies as soon as it is applied all over the face. It’s really lightweight and helps my base stick on my face for a very long time.

It practically becomes your second skin since its that light on the face and doesn’t feel cakey or heavy. It comes in a nude shade similar to that of a foundation but trusts me it will suit allllllllll types of skin tones! ❤️

Fragrance: A very mild fragrance. (Can’t actually describe the smell though)

Stay Power: I have worn this several times now and is my favorite go-to product in my vanity! It stays for a really long time. Can even last for a day. Helps stick my foundation for a long time and doesn’t melt at all. It mattifies soon and can also be worn alone if you opt for something very minimal.

Experience: I loveeeee this primer. This is my favorite product.

It is very light on the skin and becomes my second skin. Mattifies the skin completely and gives a perfectly natural look. My foundation stays longer than usual when I’ve applied this primer. It doesn’t feel cakey neither does it coat heavily on my skin.

Another thing that I like about this primer is that its super blendable! It’s soft. It’s smooth. It’s lightweight.

Also, it blurs all my pores like a dream!The tint that it has will suit all you girls out there.

Talking about the packaging, it’s travel-friendly and really handy. Also, it dispenses the right amount of the product in one go since you don’t want to use it way more than required. It hides my imperfections flawlessly and gives an even-toned skin.

Faces Ultime Pro Perfecting Primer 3

  1. Super light on the skin.
  2. Mattifies and gives a natural look.
  3. Blends like crazy.
  4. Sassy packaging.
  5. Very handy.
  6. Blurs the pores and imperfections.

Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20 1

What is it and Who is it for? Lakme Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick covers and conceals the dark circles and all other scars on the face without giving any cakey effect on the skin.Contains the SPF 30 and Vitamin B3 , it does not cause any allergy on the skin.


Rs. 450

Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20 1

How to Use:

Roll up the stick and glide it on the necessary areas not missing the under eye area, your chin and upper lips. DO NOT apply this in a massive quantity . Since its a concealer , make it worth its utility.

My Experience with Lakme Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20

Honestly speaking I’m loving this concealer. I’ve tried the liquid concealer before but this is something worth having! This is available in various shades. I’ve got the shade 05 Honey as it goes with my skin colour perfectly.

It has a smooth application and very easy to glide on. Helps in concealing the dark circles and the blemishes without leaving any fine lines.

Its very light but make sure you just apply one swatch of it or else 2 or more swatches would form thick layers over your face therefore giving you a very cakey look.

Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20 3

It’s a concealer not your cream or a foundation which you need to apply in a big quantity.

Besides this, I love the fragrance. I love using this when I opt for a minimal make-up, that is when I just apply my face cream, I prefer just dabbing it over my spots and scars. It has a very creamy texture, so dry skinnies you’re totally in the deal!

  1. Easy Application
  2. Conceals all the dark spots and blemishes and fatigues.
  3. Decently priced.
  4. Sophisticated packaging.
  1. The stick if melts down can be a huge waste of money and quantity both.

This is the only flaw I feel about it.

Overall would I Repurchase and Recommend?

A big YES!!

Surely try this Lakmé Concealer Stick. It is worth trying!

I’m not gonna switch to those liquid messy concealers if I have this stick in my bag.

Use this concealer stick by Lakmé and bid adieu to alllllll of those blemishes, scars, dark circles and everything!

L’Oreal Paris Professional Liss Unlimited Shampoo 3

What is it and Who is it for?L’Oreal Paris Professional Liss Unlimited Shampoo with is enriched with keratinoil complex softens and detangles frizzy hair and makes them manageable.

L’Oreal Paris Professional Liss Unlimited Shampoo 3




Rs.575 for 250 ml.


How to Use?

Apply evenly through wet hair and make lather. Rinse thoroughly. Repeat the process if necessary.

My Experience with L’Oreal Liss Unlimited Shampoo

I even had the evening primrose hair serum by loreal which I’ve already reviewed. Now it’s the shampoo in the same range. Some may prefer using this along with the mask, but I feel this alone can do wonders! This is creamy and nice, which makes my hair soft, smooth, shiny and damage free!

575 bucks may seem higher, but the price is worth the utility!
It leaves a pretty good smell in my hair and my hair remain frizz free not 4 but 3 days for sure! My hairstylist had recommended me this, since I had got keratin done with my hair. As it is, smoothing brings in a lot of dryness to the hair. I got lucky since I had this bundle of joy for my rescue! The shampoo produces a less amount of lather, so don’t use too much of it ‘cause then it’ll be difficult in washing it out!

L’Oreal Paris Professional Liss Unlimited Shampoo 1

But I have to point out, use this after a hair treatment to see best results.

You cannot clear hair damage just with a shampoo, so don’t keep such expectations.

  1. No frizz.
  2. Long lasting results.
  3. Mouthwatering smell.
  1. Price is only a problem.
  2. Oh yes and lots of chemicals too!
Overall would I Repurchase and Recommend?

Yes Yes! Do get this for solving your frizzy and dry hair problems of you’re okay with the price!
