Heyaa beauties! Today I am very excited because I’m going to review a very unique product which I got in my second package from Skin18. The product is a 3 step lip kit from a very famous Korean brand called “Holika Holika”. I used this kit last month before a wedding and I have been longing to review it since then. Read on to know how I liked it!
Heya beauties! Today I’ll quickly review the Makeup Academy / MUA Undress Me Too Eye Shadow Palette which is one of my recent buys. MUA is an UK based drugstore brand which sells highly affordable makeup products. Their eye shadow palettes are famous around the globe. I’m not much into eye makeup, all thanks to my weak eye sight and glasses! Sigh! This is actually my first “proper” eye shadow palette. Read on to know if I liked it or not!
The FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation by Maybelline is their most hyped product. From bloggers to top makeup artists, everyone says that it’s the best drugstore foundation for oily skin which provides great finish and coverage! This foundation is available in only 6 shades in India. I bought it in the shade “128 Medium Beige” which I thought, would fit my skin tone perfectly. Read my full review of Maybelline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation in shade 128 Medium Beige to know if it’s my perfect FIT!
Maybelline India has been on a roll from quite a few months now. They’ve launched some super-duper products back to back, be it the FITMe range or these lip gradation pencils (which are known as colour blur lip crayons in other countries). I got my hands on this Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation Fuschia 1back in February, but I couldn’t post a review as I was busy with stuff. I have worn this lipstick for barely four or five times till now and I’m all set to review it today! P.S – Don’t worry if you’re too lazy to read the whole post because I’m going to tell you that this lippie is awesomesauce in the first paragraph itself!
“Khus” or “Vetiver” in English, is an herb popularly known for its refreshing smell and cooling properties. It is mainly used to make perfumes, soaps, cooler paddings and drinks. Today I am going to review Fuschia Handmade Soap – Woody Khus variant. It is a 100% natural soap enriched with goodness of glycerin! Read on to know more about it :)..
Hi readers! Today when I was going through my draft folder and found this review post lying there since ages! I’m wondering why didn’t I publish it when the post was almost complete. :/ Stupid me. 😛 Anyways, better late than never! Lets just move on to the review.. I bought this shaver back in 2014 during Diwali. It was featured on Homeshop18’s TV channel and that’s where I saw it. I was hesitating to buy it because I couldn’t find its review anywhere online (now I am the first blogger to review it :D) but I bought it anyways and even got freebies worth Rs.598! Paisa almost vasool. 😛 This shaver is manufactured by Easy Living Brands India and sold on almost all E-commerce websites. Read on to know more about it..

Price – MRP Rs.999/- (price varies in online stores, you can even get it for less than Rs.700/- on a lucky day!) | Colours Available – 2. Baby pink and Baby blue | The kit contains – Shaver, Manual & a cleaning brush Buy Good To Go Hair Removal Shaver by SilkPro-N online onAmazon | Snapdeal | PayTM My take As I said, I was really unsure if I should get it. Even my mom told me not to buy it and go for some other “trustable” brands (like Philips or Braun epilator) but I found the other ones way too expensive (I am very kanjoos by the way :P) so I bought this one instead. I could always return it if I didn’t like it anyways! This was (and is) my first ever shaver so I was a bit skeptical to use it at first.. after seeing the blades and all. 😛 Eventually, I got hang of it and now I use it in every 7-8 days! It doesn’t really hurt to use, I just get that “pinching” sensation when I’m using it on my forearms or underarms but I guess there is nothing too unusual about it. I’m sure that waxing must be 100 times more painful than this! 😀 It won’t pain much if you use the shaver when the hair length is very short (i.e you have to use it more often to avoid pain as much as possible).
Good To Go Hair Removal Shaver by SilkPro – N
This little munchkin comes with a small brush (forgot to take its picture) which can be used to clean it. The head of this shaver is detachable so you can wash the blades without any hassle but make sure you dry it properly before putting it back on because the machine part isn’t waterproof! If you buy it online, you’ll get 1 year return/replacement warranty from most of the stores. Once when it suddenly stopped working while I was using it, I became really furious and was about to send a long hate mail to HS18 for selling me a bad quality product. Later I realized that I was using very old batteries in it and they were probably worn-out. I changed the batteries and turned the shaver on, it was working more efficiently now! 😀 Tip – Always remember to remove batteries from electronics when you aren’t using them! What I like about Good To Go Hair Removal Shaver by SilkPro – N • Very affordable (in today’s date you won’t find a good shaver or epilator below Rs.1500-2000) • It runs on batteries therefore you don’t need to go looking for plugs to charge it! • It is travel friendly because of its compact size. • Easy to use. • Looks cute and girly. • Few online stores give some lovely freebies with it! 😀 What I don’t like about Good To Go Hair Removal Shaver by SilkPro – N • It isn’t waterproof (not an issue for me, it might be for others). Will I recommend this product? Yup. It has almost all the qualities of a good epilator/shaver! so If you are on a tight budget but still want to try out a shaver then go for this one! You won’t mind throwing it away after a few years of usage because it doesn’t cost a fortune (I have seen some epilators priced at 8k-12k and above !!!! 😐 Thank you but I think I can survive with my hairy legs and buy Makeup with that money instead.. :D). Rating – 5/5 * The product was purchased with my own money. I feel that epilators or shavers can save you a lot of time and money.. Buying one of them is like a one time investment! You won’t have to go to some salon in every 15-30 days for waxing and give them hefty sum of money on your every visit :P. Do you guys (I mean girls of course :P)agree with me?! Let me know your favourite hair removal method in the comments below! 😀 Also, if you’ve any questions about this product I’ll be happy to answer them!
Hello pretty people! 🙂 How are you all? I was very busy last week. There was a wedding at our family friend’s house so we had to attend all the functions. You guys probably know about it already since I was updating everything on my Instagram account. 😛 I caught TERRIBLE cold and fever day after the wedding got over, I’m feeling a little better now so it’s time to get back to my usual routine (i.e – Eat, Sleep, Blog, Repeat :P). I reviewed Fuschia’s Anti-Ageing Night Cream last week and today I’ll be reviewing their lip balm in “Tropical Alphonso” flavour(uhmm this name makes me crave for mangoes ?). It came with a pretty potli (draw string) pouch pictured below. ❤ Read on to know more about it ..

Alphonso Mangoes (or Hapus Aam in Hindi) are said to be the most sweetest and tastiest variant of mangoes ♥ This lip balm smells as delicious as the real mangoes! 😀 I have been using it NON-STOP ever since it reached me and I’m in love with it mostly because of its smell. 😛 It comes in a see-through tub with screw cap lid which closes tightly, I really wish it came in a stick form instead! 🙁 The product looks yellowish in the tub, but surprisingly, it is actually colourless when you swatch it! That’s why I didn’t click a swatch picture. 😛
Fuschia says that this lip balm can be used anywhere on the body and not just lips so I applied it on my dry patches and yeah, it actually works well as a moisturizer too! Though it may feel slightly heavy if used on the whole face. If I were given an option, I’d use it as an Ittar (Yup, I won’t mind smelling like a mango) :P. Talking about its job as a Lip balm, I usually use it before sleeping (along with their Arabian Jasmine Night Cream) and leave it on overnight. It feels very smooth on my lips and heals them by the morning. It has all those ingredients like Bees Wax, Shea butter, Natural oils, etc, which help to nourish the lips. You can also use it over or underneath any lipstick to make your lips appear glossy and save them from getting dry! 🙂
What I liked about Fuschia Lip Balm – Tropical Alphonso :-
• Contains natural (and vegetarian) ingredients. You won’t be (involuntary) consuming any harsh chemicals. ^_^
• Smells M.A.G.I.C.A.L!!!!
• Heals chapped lips and protects them.
• Doubles up as a moisturizer.
• Can be used by both, men and women.
• Can be used as a clear gloss over any lipstick or underneath it, as a primer.
• The brand, Fuschia, Doesn’t test their products on animals. (Got to know about it recently, while reading the product description)
What I didn’t like about Fuschia Lip Balm – Tropical Alphonso :-
• Chapstick style packaging would have been more hygienic and travel friendly. 🙁
• It tastes bitter! Most probably due to some ingredient(s) present in it (I don’t know which one). None of us would “taste” it voluntary 😛 but you just can’t help it since it’s a lip product, it will reach your taste buds somehow :/. The brand should remove/replace that ingredient(s) which is causing the bitterness.
Rating - 4.6/5
Will I recommend this product?
YES! #1 for smell and #2 for the Hydration part! It may sound a bit pricey if compared to other Lip balms that are currently popular in Indian market, but if you see its performance and its ingredient list, you won’t mind shelling out few extra bucks. 🙂 The tub style packaging might also be a major turn off for some.. I am hoping that they come up with revamped packaging soon!
