Diana of London- Protouch Concealer /Instant Highlighter 05

Helloo Ladies,

I'm back and very happy  to share my world back with you :) ^_^ . I told you that I would be away for my friends wedding and after that I again never got the time to tell you :((.  All this while I was at my sis place where I had aweesoommeee timeeee :* :). Reason for me and bro staying at my sis place was that my parents were holidaying in Dubai. You girls would be thinking that I must have given my parents a longgggg list...Well, I'm a kid who never tells anyone to buy stuff for me :). I just get them without telling  ^_^. I will talk about it in my next post :).

Okkk coming back to my today's review...Diana of London- Protouch Concealer /Instant Highlighter  05 is the product.. Ive been using this product for a while and this is what I think about it. Read on to know more about it :))).

Price : INR. 395/- for 10ml.

Packaging : It comes in a transparent slim cylindrical bottle with a screw cap flock applicator. The bottle has Diana of London trade mark with Protouch Concealer /Instant Highlighter written on it on one side and all other details of the make mentioned on the other side.

Directions of use: This easy to apply creamy texture can be used:
  • On its own, on bare skin for a naturally luminous and even complexion, applied to dark areas on the face (dark circles, fine lines, hollow of the chin, etc.)
  • On top of foundation, to add maximum radiance to makeup. Apply the texture directly with the flock applicator, and then gently pat with fingertips to blend in.
Shades: Light Ivory 01, Light Beige 02, Rosy Beige 03, Honey Beige 04 , Golden Beige 05

Golden Beige 05

  1. Diana of London counters
  2. Online stores

Company claims: Diana's new liquid cream concealer, which offers a precise, professional and easy to modulate application. Thanks to the fluid texture and its exclusive flock applicator. Extremely light on the skin, the high content of pigments guarantees excellent coverage and extra ordinary long lasting matte look. A vegetal active ingredient assures the elasticity and smoothness of the skin.

My Experience with Diana of London- Protouch Concealer /Instant Highlighter  05: I have these few acne marks on my face and I wanted a miracle product that would do the trick. I have been on a hunt for "THE CONCEALER" for a long time that's when I happen to see Diana of London counter @ a store in Panaji which opened about a six months back. The concealer is very decently priced <3 <3 and the amount in the bottle too is very good. The ingredient list is missing on the bottle and also on the Diana of London site :(((. The packaging is similar to most liquid concealers :(( not impressed with that ...but HEY...I go by the saying...DO NOT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER ^_^...The SA applied Golden Beige 05 with the flock applicator on my marks, gave a pat or two and offered me a mirror.

Golden Beige 05  swatch
The texture of the liquid is very sssmmmoooooooth ..very creamy *_* ^_^.  I was impressed that the marks reduced A LOTTTT... :D ...It is very light on the skin and feels like there is nothing on the skin *kisses* ..Check out the blended product on my wrist :)))).

Golden Beige 05 blended

For light pigmentation apply the product once on the spot and pat. For darker pigmentation , apply it twice as it is build able and does not give cakey  look.  I was so happy that I couldn't stop smiling and I purchased it. There are 5 shades to choose from *happy dance**happy dance*. The application technique can be followed as mentioned by the company too. Next day I applied it before foundation and was very much happy the way it blended onto my skin :). It lasted me good 6-7 hours with loose powder to seal it :).

My final word on this product is that it is a worth buying and the range of shades is awesome :))). It is very pigmented and will last a long time :)). Please go try it for yourself :))).It will surely impress you ^_^ *nodding*. From this brand I'm wanting to buy Diana of London 2000 kisses wonderful lipsticks as I've heard a lot about them :)))).

BEWARE!!!!Fake MAYBELLINE products in the market.

Hi Everyone,
Today's post has been in my draft for a very long time ( Dec '12). A few days before my pencil eyeliner was about to get over  I went to the market to purchase one for my self :)))). I didn't own a Maybelline Colossal retractable pen so I told the owner of the shop that I wanted one. Before I could make the payment  ...he showed me a felt tip Maybelline pen in Black. I was surprised at the fact that I didn't know about it. Finally I paid for both and returned home. I used the colossal many a times and every time I found that it would smudge and would not remain on my waterline. I wondered how can a well known brand fool its customers like that so I mailed a letter to the Team of Maybelline. Here are the snapshot of the letter that I took today :


And here are the pictures of the fake Maybelline products:




left swatch of fake Maybelline felt tip pen & right swatch of fake Maybelline retractable pen

After sending and receiving a lot of mails I got my ORIGINAL COLOSSAL FROM THE TEAM of Maybelline. I have no issues that the team did not replace both the fake items . What matters is that they are going to stop the FAKES IN THE MARKET as it  brings down the economy of the country. Result of this letter is the new thing going on FB- Maybelline page "SPOT THE FAKEs in your city" :)) :D ..HAPPPYYYY TO SEEE THAT :))))).
Hope this has helped a lot of girls around the country :) :*.

AnuSpa Ubtan Scrub

Ola Lindas,
Any special occasion coming up for you pretty ladies be it wedding, birthday, date or would you want to just stay home and pamper yourself ???Now who would not want that :)) :D. Well, here's the thing just for you ;) .
My friend Sneha has been on a hunt for Ubtan Powder for weeks.Ookkk....Now I got to define the term for my International friends who do not know what I'm talking about. UBTAN POWDER is an Ayurvedic mixture containing purifying herbs and legumes like Gulab Patti, Nagar Motha, Ambawadi, Amla, Wasa, Bavchi, Orange Peel, Jatamansi, Kapoor, Katchri & Chandan Powder. Ubtan is a natural exfoliant leading to healthy, extra soft & youthful glowing skin.
So back to the story....She went to the local market but returned home without it as it was unavailable :( . She told me to find out about it from my grandmother how to make UBTAN POWDER AT HOME. I never got the time to ask her and forgot completely about it. Saturdays are grocery shopping days... so while at the super market my eyes fell on the text UBTAN on the pack :D. hehehe ..I picked up TWO but since I follow the policy of testing it first and then recommending it to others I kept the other back on the shelf :(. No this Ubtan was in soap form which I had never heared of before. So there it went into my cart and HOME :)) :D. Read on to know more about this UBTAN scrub :))).
Price : INR. 45/-
Packaging : It comes in a glossy paper carton and the soap is securely placed in a clear plastic inside.
Ingredients : Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Aqua,Ubtan Powder, Perfume, Alpha Olefien Sulfonate, Rose water, TiO2, Glycerine, Lanoline, EDTA, Milk Power, Triclosan, Disodium Salt, BHT, Pentarythrito Tetrakes, C.I. NO.47000, C.L. NO.12150.
Note: Use once a week. Ideal for oily skin.
Company claims: AnuSpa range of soaps have been specially developed by an IIT engineer to give you a natural spa-like bathing experience in your own bathroom. The soaps are pure soaps with zero free alkalinity and no fillers, structurant or synthetic surfactant. The highest possible TFM in the soaps offers you a rich lather, soft feel, lingering fragrance and no after bath dryness.
My Experience with Anuspa UBTAN SCRUB : I've been using AnuSpa UBTAN SCRUB for past few weeks now :) once a week as mentioned on the pack. Also I have combi-oily skin so YYAAYYYY!!!! :*:* :**** to that :) :D I can use it. This soap is very economical and I have no issues with the packaging. The soap sits in place inside the glossy paper cover :D :)). Its availability I doubt in other cities but hey they have online site. Here is the address to the  web page .
I used it like any other scrub and found that the soap does not melt tho it is said 72% TFM and 8% Ubtan :)).
I made the soap wet and used it in circular motion. The tiny beads in the soap indeed gave me the feeling of being in the spa :D.
After washing off the scrub water the skin was sooooffftttt and smoooooth :)))..That's what the scrub is meant for rt?? :)) . I eagerly wait for the weekend so that I under go the same experience :))). I prefer using this soap instead of power is for the reason that it is packed with soap+ubtan :))).
My final verdict on the product : I would defiantly recommend to you all to go ahead and try for yourself :))). It stays true to its claims and am very happy about it *happy dance* *happy dance*:*. I'm wanting to purchase soaps from the site :))).



Which one is better???Maybelline BB Cream OR Garnier BB Cream

Hello Beauties,

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend ^_^.I was suppose to publish this "Which one is better???Maybelline BB Cream OR Garnier BB Cream " post on Saturday :(((..I had some issues so .... Anyway it goes like this :))))...


Today being SATURDAY I woke up late..ummm late would be 7:10ish :P. I usually wake up at 5:30 take the dogs for a run and be back home in 45 mins. My body clock wakes me up on time.... but for the last few days its been very chilly so I switched of the fan and went back to sleep :P *_* . Anyway after breakfast did lil bit of cleaning, surfed the net and replied to all your lovely comment *_* ^_^ . Meantime I saw my mum leave in a hurry and I guessed she was heading towards the supermarket downstairs :)). I usually have issues stepping out of home without any grooming done .But ..hey WTH.. so I applied lil bit of Maybelline BB Cream and Lotus lip balm and dashed across the room to follow my mum :D. On reaching down I couldn't find my mum on the lower level of the market so I asked the SA and she directed me towards the top floor. AAHHHAAAA this is where I wanted to be *grin*hehehehhe :))). FOUND MY MUM and I turned to look out what I could review next for you lovely ladies :))). My eyes fell on the text  INSTANTLY PERFECT SKIN :))))))) *grin* again. I picked it up and added my NEW item to the rest of the items collected by my mum. On reaching home I wanted to checkout the cream so badly that I didn't even listen what my mum was telling me. Anyway... I applied the cream as I would normally do with other moisturizers with light circular strokes from the middle of the face towards the outside. Now I wanted to understand what was in it so I sat down to make a list of things present in Maybelline and Garnier BB Cream. To make the list I found that the text on Maybelline tube was very small :(((....  3:)  I sneaked into my bros room to get my hands on the magnifying glass :P..Ohh hope you girls don't think it belongs to him ...IT BELONGS TO ME ^_^ ...I  pass it to him when he was in college... I found what I was hunting for in his room and silently marched out. He didn't even come to know I was in his room...heheheheheh...3:) *evil laugh*. With the glass in one hand and the tube in the other I zoomed in and out to make the list *phew*. Finally the list was done and here is the review of BOTH the BB CREAMS :)))

Which one is better???Maybelline BB Cream OR Garnier BB Cream

My Experience with Maybelline BB Cream

<3 the packaging but one cannot figure out how much of the product is still left inside.
<3 the NATURAL shade but there are two more to choose from for other skin color beauties.
<3 the citrus fragrance which is from Limohene + Hexyl Cinnamal(refer ingredients list :D)
It is thin in consistency which is result of aqua+glycerol but is light on the skin which I <3.It did not even out skin as much as Garnier did though same ingredients are present in Maybelline too. Presence of Talc in the cream give the white cast on the skin which is absent in Garnier. This cream does not cover up any blemishes and is merely a moisturizer for clear face beauties : ).Even upon layering a multiple times it fails to conceal.So coming to the price ....its a bit expensive.

Final verdict

Garnier BB Cream

Without BB cream
Price :
INR. 99/- for 18gm.

Soft plastic beige tube with a built in nozzle and white screw cap.


Aqua/ Water, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Plamitate, Niacinamide,Silica,Octyldodecanol, Talc, Fragrance, Octyldodecyl Xyloside, Phenoxylethanol, Sodium Acrylate / Sodium Acryloyldimerhyl Taurate Copolymer, Isohexadecane, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/ Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, PEG-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Sodium Dehyrdoacetate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Caprylyl Glycol, Disodium ETDA, Citric Acid, Polysorbate 80, Potassium Sorbate, Benzyl Salicylate, Linalool, citronellol, Benzyl Alcohol ,Caprylic/capric Triglyceride, Methylisothiazolinone,Hexyl Cinnamal,Sweet Almond Fruit extract, Limohene (+/- may contain Cl 77891/ titanium Dioxide, Cl 77491, 77492, Cl 77499/ Iron Oxides) (F.I.L.

1 shade

My Experience with Garnier BB Cream
<3 the packaging but the amount left in the tube cant be guessed.
<3 the NATURAL shade but other color beauties may have issues with it.
<3 the rose fragrance from Citronellol.
<3 the consistency is thick compared to Maybelline is because of presence of Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride - a dry, silky oil which once applied on skin doesn't feel oily & heavy. It gives a nice sheen to the skin : ). But after few hours combi & oily skin people will have a slightly oily feeling : (so dusting lil bit of power should set things in place : ). This cream does
not cover up blemishes fully even upon layering : (. But is good for clear skin beauties who would not want to pay INR.199/- for a BB cream but would be happy to pay only INR.99/- for a good tinted BB cream : )

Final verdict
Garnier BB Cream does give FAIRER<GLOWING<SMOOTH< MOISTURIZED skin but fails to EVEN OUT THE SKINTONE and is dirt CHEAP.

I would recommend GARNIER BB CREAM to ladies with a clear face who require FAIRER <GLOWING < SMOOTH< MOISTURIZED skin for just INR.99/- instead of paying the same for MAYBELLINE BB CREAM of INR.199/- which has the same functionality as Garnier.

Hope you all pretty ladies liked the comparison between the two. Let me know what you think about the BB Creams and their functionality. Do they really work like they should ??


Olivia Waterproof Pan-Cake

Hello Everyone,

Hmmm...By now you all must be thinking that I'm a brand ambassador of OLIVIA...Hmmm :P... But frankly I'm not *_*..But it would be a very good feeling to promote a brand like it as till date I've not had any issues ^_^. Right now there is a exhibition going on at Don Bosco's and there is a stall of OLIVIA .So ladies hurry to test the products for yourself :D :))...Okk before that I would like to inform a few readers about the term "PAN CAKE". Well...pancake make-up gives full-coverage primarily used  to cover major skin discolouration, scars, tattoos or facial hair.It give the skin a flawless finish required in film, television, theatre or photography settings.
Price : INR. 90/- for 25g.

Packaging : It comes in a black hard plastic pan with a black cap. The inside has a clear plastic lid to hold the sponge. The front of the pan has the Olivia trade mark font with Olivia Waterproof Pan-Cake written on it gold.

Ingredients : Titanium Oxide, Talc, Kaolin, Sorbitol 70%, Iron oxides and Fragrance.

Directions of use: Apply Olivia makeup with a damp sponge, evenly. After drying, wipe the make-up area with a soft cloth.

Caution:  For external use only. Keep away from children.

Company claims: This make-up is specially formulated with pharmaceutical/ISI grade material to provide protection to your skin from pollution and light rays. As such, it is an ideal make-up for Cine/TV stars. Olivia Pancake provides a perfect velvety finish and flawless appearance to your skin. Being water-proof, it gives you a very natural look and keeps you fresh all day long. It does not run or streak with perspiration. Olivia Pancake is dermatologist tested and is completely harmless. It comes in 12 shades to suit every skin type.

Shade:Golden Yellow, Bronze Glow, Fresh Peach, Natural Honey, Natural Beige, Almond Dust, Sun Tone, Dark Beige, Touch & Glow, Tender Orange, Light Egyptian, Dark Egyptian.

Refer website for more details:

My Experience with Olivia Waterproof Pan-Cake: This pan is very affordable and is very compact to carry around. This is the only packaging of Olivia that is in Black+Gold which I completely adore.I wish that the other products from this brand change the color and make it BLACK+GOLD :))). I love the way the unit is divided into 2 part:one part for the sponge and the other for the cake. There are lots of shades available from the pan cake range :)))...*happy dance*:D...*happy dance*:P..

To get a shade closest to your skin color is to swatch it on the jaw line and check it out in the sun :))..I know it is bit of work to walk up and down but it is worth it :))).So no issues with regards to that :))). My shade Golden Yellow 21 is closest to my skin color as I have yellow undertones :)).
Swatch on my wrist

Before continuing the skin and the makeup has to be prepared. Now coming to the preparation of the skin: Gently exfoliate the skin with a mild cleanser,pat dry and apply light moisturiser. A well moisturised face will allow for the best streak-free coverage. Preparation of makeup includes damping the cake and sponge with water and squeezing out the excess out.

After blending

Start the application of the makeup from the centre of the forehead. Use light, quick, upward strokes in a "star burst pattern" to cover the forehead. The same should be followed up on the cheeks. For the nose downward, swipes should be followed by upward swipes for total coverage.  For the eyes lightly daubing the makeup over the lid and under the brow. Make sure that the hair and jaw lines are thoroughly blended. It is always best to apply several thin layers of makeup instead of one thick layer. Once the makeup is dry, wipe the makeup area with a soft cloth for a flawless, matte finish.

The left hand has the product blended whereas the right has no product on it :))

My final word on Olivia Waterproof Pan-Cake is a product for special occasions where there is
going to be ultra-light or low light situations..:)))... All pancake makeup give matte finish which is a good thing. What I don't like about it is that it is impossible to do touch ups on the go if it is more than 5-6 hrs. This cake will last me a long time :))) as it is for occasitions ONLY :D :)...Definitely worth buying :))) ^_^ *_*. Waiting for launch of blushers from this wonderful brand :)).

3rd DIY!!! How to make your own statement necklace?

Hey pretty ladies,

I've been bit busy with work but don't you worry I'M BACK with yet another DIY :D :)))...I feel very happy and proud to create stuff. It gives me satisfaction and peace after a hard days work. It takes away all my stress and energises me to face the world back again :)).

I've been searching various materials to make a statement necklace but never actually got the materials required for it :(((. I had the afternoon off ,so I went to the store and just picked up stuff randomly :))). I challenged myself to make the statement neck piece of the stuff that I had just purchased.

You will need the following:
  1. Scissor
  2. Fabric glue
  3. Desired length of sequins nylon ribbon
  4. Desired length of cord/string
  5. Needle and thread
1. Think of a pattern for the statement necklace and draw it out on paper to avoid any mistakes...(I skipped and just started doing it without sketching :))).

2. Cut out the sequins nylon ribbon according to the pattern drawn by you. 

3.Fold the top to make a loop.

4. Pass the cord/string between the fold. Apply fabric glue to the top and bottom as shown in the picture.

5. Hold the sequins nylon ribbon for some time as mentioned on the fabric glue instructions.

6. Place the necklace under a heavy object for a hour or two or in the sun for drying.

7. Next step is to make an 'O' as shown in the picture.

8. You can either stitch it or apply glue to it & let it dry.

9. After drying pass this loop between the ends of the string.

 10. And cut the end of the 'O'.

11. Apply fabric glue to the 'O' to prevent the fibres from coming out loose.

12. Tadddaaaaaa!!! Your very own 'STATEMENT NECKLACE' is readdyyyy!!! Wear it with your
favourite outfit and walk with your head held high :D :))).
