Maybelline Color Show Go Graffiti Nail Polish Review

Maybelline Color Show Go Graffiti Nail Polish Review

Maybelline is a budget cosmetic brand and is loved by all us. I love Maybelline products. It is because I don’t have to spend tons to buy makeup. It fits my budget. And the products do justice to my skin and make me look gorgeous.

Recently, Maybelline launched its new range of Color Show nail polishes. The entire range has 9 Color Show Go Graffiti Nail Paints – 6 top coats and 3 jelly like nail polish. Today I am going to review “Flower Power”, which is a top coat with clear base, medium peach orange hexes and micro white dots and hexes. I chose my base nail paint also from Maybelline in peach colour. I wanted to give floral feel to my nails.

Maybelline Go Graffiti flower power Nail Polish Review

go graffiti nail polish review

In the bright sunshine I like colours which are pleasing and soft. Flower power is a gel based nail polish which can be worn individually also. It has big white coloured flowers which makes this nail polish really cute. But it is a task to take out the flowers and apply on your nails. I used tweezers to place my flowers the way I wanted. It is really worth spending every amount on this nail paint. The texture is thick and it does not come out easily. It is a steal deal in the given price. The only one thing which I didn’t like was the flowers are too big to place on your nails. So if you have a habit like me to play with your hair. Then it will irritate you.

Rest I think it is a must to have these graffiti nail paints.

Price – INR 145 for 6ml

Monsoon Dressing

I love rains! It’s a big relief from the rising mercury levels in Delhi. But dressing in the monsoons is little tricky. One should always avoid wearing shades of white and transparent clothes.

So the last weekend I had to go out with my friends. No special occasion, it is a weekend and you just cannot stay at home. I was really confused as what to wear. It is a million dollar question: what to wear…. If you can answer that in one go, hats off to you. I always stand in front of my closet and stare for long.. thinking I don’t have anything.. Finally I pulled out my silk shirt and thought to ditch my denims and wear my leather pants.

I created a chick and casual look. I opted for natural makeup and pink lips. Have a look and tell me if you like it.

What To Wear For A Party

Hey!

Today I am going to talk about how to get ready for a party in blinks.

Last week my childhood friend was in town. I was so excited and we decided that we have to go out and party. But we were not sure where to go. So I thought lets get ready and do club hopping. Whichever club is nice we will stay there.

I had very little time to get ready. As I wanted to style my friend first. I hope you read my last blog where I did her before and after makeup.

I did minimal makeup and just highlighted my lips with glossy colour. I am wearing Colorbar coral lipstick and monochrome dress. And I paired it with my black heels. (These are the same heels which I changed from dull cream to black colour. Read here.)

So this is what I wore.

The Power Of Makeup

First of all I want to say I am no makeup artist but a makeup addict and lover.

I usually don’t do makeup for others. I like to experiment and work on myself. But exceptions come when your best friend is home. And you want to doll her up. So I gave her very simple look with bright lips. She wanted more no-makeup sorts look.

Homemade Body Scrub

homemade body scrub Homemade body scrubs are really easy to make. Most scrubs which we buy contain preservatives and harmful chemicals which are not good for the skin. The scrub which I am going to tell you today is really easy to make and you can save tons of money too. I strongly believe in natural products and encourage people around me to use the same. The beauty of this scrub is that you can customize it however you want. It all depends on the ingredients you have or want to use.

Ingredients: Gram flour (Besan), turmeric (haldi), curd or milk and lemon

Time required – 2 minutes

Difficulty level – Super easy

Mix 4 teaspoon of gram flour (besan), 1 teaspoon of lemon, 1 teaspoon of yogurt and a pinch of turmeric to form a smooth paste. Apply it all over your body and gently scrub the skin. This scrub is all in one scrub. It has lot of benefits like it removes tan, acne, dry flaky skin, instant fairness, unwanted hair, etc.

home made scrub with besan

Why Besan – Besan or gram flour has been traditionally used extensively for its beauty and health benefits. The best thing about this natural product is that it is suitable for all the skin types. It makes the skin look fresh and radiant.

home made scrub using haldi or turmeric

Why Turmeric – Turmeric or haldi, is one of the most widely used spice in India. From food to cosmetics, it is a main ingredient for almost everything. It is an excellent exfoliating agent and can help you defeat the signs of ageing. Not only does turmeric take care of the scars and inflammation but also reduces oil secretion by sebaceous glands.

home made scrub using curd

Why curd or lemon – Curd contains zinc which helps in reducing blemishes as well as acne problem. Lactic chemical in curd helps in soothing and hydrating. Thus making the skin soft and nourished.

lemon for skin

Why lemon – aaahhh lemon has so many benefits. It is loaded with vitamins and has many benefits when applied on the skin or consumed directly. The citric acid helps in removing the flaky dead skin and resulting in smooth flawless complexion. This is one scrub which is loaded with tons of benefits. I personally use it to remove tan.

Do try this scrub and share your reviews with me.

You Can Never Go Wrong With White And Gold

We all have fetish for Gold. And when you pair gold with any dress you got to look like a goddess.  It was my birthday last week and I had no plans to go out and party. But then if you have crazy bunch of friends you cannot sit home and avoid all the jazz.

I didn’t get time to go for birthday shopping so I picked my old dress and matched it with gold accessories. You can never go wrong with white and gold combination.

I was not having much time to do my makeup. When in doubt I just go for contouring and nude lipstick. I paired my dress with ear cuff.

Style Tip: Fetish for gold is good but just don’t overdo it.

Here’s what I wore:
