Omved Taruni Skin Pack Review

Hi Beauties,

I have been wanting to write a review on this for a such a long time. But just not got the time :P Anyway, who doesn't love face packs. I love it because its a great way to pamper your skin and you can also relax a while from the crazy life you live in :P Today, I am reviewing Omved Taruni Skin Pack Review. The best part about this face pack is that it is free from Parabens, sulphates, silicones, glycols, phthalates, synthetic colors or perfumes. How awesome is that???

What is claims:

Proprietary ayurvedic medicine Omved Taruni Skin Pack is a nutrient-rich herbal mud pack to help you enjoy a younger, smoother and brighter complexion.

Ingredients and Directions to Use:

My thoughts:

This pack comes in a foil packing. I would loved if it would have come in a plastic container. Much easier for storage. As per instructions, I store it in refrigerator. This a powder face pack that you need to mix with water and apply it. The powder is a little grainy and this is great because you can use it doubles up as a scrub plus face pack. The smell is herbal. Which I like. I find the smell to be relaxing. I do not know if all will like the smell.  I simply apply it and leave it to dry. And then remove with water. Then I have super soft and glowing skin. 

I really like the fact that is very simple to use. It is not a pack that specifies you to mix other products such as  milk or any other ingredient. Its just mix it water and apply. Very simple and yet very effective in giving results.    I don't think that this will remove sun tan, it doesn't claim so either. Though its a mud pack it did not dry my skin. Trust me, I have normal to dry skin. I follow with Omved Moisturiser and I love the effects. The brightness is there for two days. 

The price is another added advantage of this product. Its is priced at Rs.120 for 25gms of product. Some may think its pricey for the amount of product you get. But you will need very little amount for your whole face and neck. So this can last a really long time. Being free from so many harmful components, I am not complaining :D

This is how it looks:

Its a simple pack that gives good results. I like it. I am impressed with Omved products I have. After trying the products, I also ordered for Ultra Light Day and Night Moisturiser and I love it. I will review it soon. 

What I liked:
Free from Chemicals
Loved the smell
Makes skin soft and glowing
You will need very little for your face and neck and so it will last really long.

What I dint like:
Packaging. Would have been great if it had come in a container.
Need to store in fridge.

You can buy Omved products from websites such as Healhkart and Urbantouch. You can also buy it from their official online store here

Price: Rs.120 for 25 gms
Shelf Life: 2 years.

I loved the product and I am surely repurchasing it.

Recommendation: Yes!! Do try it and it won't hurt your pocket.

Faces Nail Enamel- All That Glitters- Review- NOTD

Hi Beauties,

Sorry for not being around for a while. I had quite a hell lot of work and completely stressed out from it. Then went to a small trip with my family had a good time and now I am back :D I missed you guys :-* 

Anyway, Remember I told here I will be getting a gold glitter polish also. I got this sometime back and took pictures but was not able to post it because of my tight schedule. This polish is from Faces and the shade name is All That Glitters :D

This is a wonderful polish. I love the gold glitter. The brush is small but easy to apply. No streaking. And the polish stays really long. Removing this polish was a little difficult. But with the help of Hip Hop Nail Polish remover pads I was able to remove them easily.

This is priced at Rs.99 for 7ml. I got it for Rs.84 from Stylecraze.com. The quality is amazing and bigger size bottles are also available. The shade range is amazing. If you are a nail polish lover grab a few from this brand :)

I have three coats in the below pics. These are great to be used on top of other polishes as well. But I like these to be used alone as well :)

Repurchase: I already have bought another shade from this brand.

Recommendation: Ofcourse :)

Deborah 24Ore Power Extreme Long-Lasting Lipstick- Shade No- 5 Review- Swatches

Finally, pulled myself to do this review. Today I am going to review Deborah 24Ore Power Extreme Long-Lasting Lipstick.

What it claims:

I couldn't find this on the company website. I found some details from urbantouch.com:

Want a settled matte look for your lips! Try on the new 24Ore Power Extreme Long-Lasting Lipstick that comes with a special glide-on formula. It applies smoothly on lips without emphasizing lip lines while keeping them soft and supple.

Get the feeling of true diva...

My experience:

Since I have dry lips I don't prefer matte lipsticks.  I am more of person who likes glossy lips. So, this is my first matte lipstick. Lets start with the packaging. The packing is simple. Which I like. The lipstick locks very nicely and so do not have to worry about taking with you while travelling.

The shade is a gorgeous Red with orange undertones (I think) I am sorry, very bad at explaining colors. Really gorgeous shade. The formula is soft and comes totally matte. 

It does stay long as promised. Since its a matte formula it stays for more 6 to 7 hours on me. Another advantage is that I did not find it drying though I have dry lips. No cracks or peels on lips after I use.

For this particular shade you need to have scrubbed lips and use a lip liner to avoid bleeding. Orelse this will not look good. I really like the face that it brightens up my face. But the problem is I am not a bright lipstick lover. This is too bold for me. But if you are person who loves bright lipsticks or a person who loves matte lipsticks this is a great buy.

I have not used any lip liner for the lip swatch to show the actual color. When you use a good lip liner it can look even more pretty. I applied lip balm and blotted it before applying the lipstick. This is just one coat.

The shade no 5 is a bright red with orange tones. Too bold for my taste. The formula is really good and if you are person who loves matte and long lasting lipsticks get it.

Price: Rs.595. Available at much lesser prices at many online stores.

Recommendation: People who like matte lippies can get. If you have dry lips that can flake easily skip it.

Repurchase: No. I am not a fan of matte lippies. But I really like the quality of the lipstick. So will definitly check out other ranges from this brand :)

Enchanteur Body Mist In Romance and Charming- Review

Hi Beauties,

If you are in Chennai, you must be knowing how HOTTTT it is it. The power cuts is making situation even worse. So its always sweating and hot. No one wants to smell bad right in this hot summer right?? So the best way is to use some good smelling products. 

I usually don't deos don't ask why, I never liked it. I always prefer perfumes that too the mild ones. So, when I got Enchanteur Body Mists In Romance and Charming for review, I had two minds.

What it says?? (from here)
Wrap yourself in the luxury of this irresistible scent and reveal your natural romanticism. Bring a touch of French romance to your packed day with the luxury of Enchanteur body mist. Just spray it on, and stay confident all day, no matter how much you do.

Ingredients: Ethanol, Butane, Propane, Fragrance.

My thoughts:
These body mists come in regular tin bottles with spray dispenser. It is a liquid spray. Both  smell of flowers. I am sorry I am bad at explaining how it smells. If you like flowers you will like these. I liked the Romantic much more than the Charming. I find Charming too heavy for me. Romantic was different. This smell is soft and loving it. I am wearing this more often nowadays.

What is the best about these body mists is that it is affordable. It is just Rs.99 for a 75ml. The smell stays for about 4 to 5 hours on me. I am more of a perfume person so I don't know whether I will purchase these again. But people looking for some affordable and nice smelling body sprays get this!!! I am sure you guys will love it :)

You can visit their official website to know about the different products they offer: http://www.enchanteur.in/

I am quite impressed with these and its absolutely worth it.  For the price you can try it without burning your pocket. Available at many stores and online shopping sites. 

Have you guys used it???

She carefully selected a colour palette that complimented the bridal outfit and skin tone – an earthy red-orange tinge for the perfect pout and lip contouring and a red tint eye shadow, carefully dusted with bronzers that made her eyes sparkle. Jaya drew inspiration from recent trends and Shanya’s desired look; and added winged tips to the deep black kohl liner that defined the bride’s eyes.

MaxFactor Colour Elixir Lipstick Rosewood Review and Swatches

Hi beauties,

I am back with another lipstick review. This time it is the MaxFactor Colour Elixir Lipstick in the shade Rosewood. I saw this swatch at wiseshe and loved the color and I knew I had to get it.  What attracted me more was the gorgeous golden packaging. It looks oh so lovely when I see it with my other lippies. This is one of my expensive lippies too :D

All these lippies come with a transperant end that shows you the color of the lippie. Just like the NYX and Colorbar ones. I loved the packing very much. Its quite sturdy and no issues while taking it with you for travelling.

The lettter 'X' is engraved on the lipstick bullet and I find it very cute. The color is a gorgeous brownish pink with minute shimmers. I think its more on the pink side. I really like it. This particular shade will look different on different skin tones. 

On my skin tone it comes more pinker and still I love it. Its really pigmented and moisturizing. I have dry lips and still it did not dry up my lips without a moisturizer. Staying power is also awesome. It says around 4 to 5 hours on me, which I think is really good :)

The only con is the price. Its priced at Rs.670 (ouch!!) Absolutely worth it. You can get this at much lesser price at Stylecraze.com. Right now they have only two shades. Hope they add in more shades soon. 

Go here to see some more shades from this range. Every shade is quite different and I am sure that you will find something that will suit you.  

Now lets go for the swatches: All pictures were taken in natural light. Its a little cloudy here so the pics came a little dull. Sorry for that :(

with flash

Topped of with Maybelline Naked Brown lip gloss:

Rosewood is a gorgeous shade and will work on many skin tones. Its a gorgoeus MLBB shade on fair to medium skin tones.

On me it goes more on the pinker side. Hey I am lipstick lover and already have many ways to make it a everyday shade :P

Overall I love the formula and I am already planning to get Mulberry and Burnt Caramel.

Recommendation: Yes of course. Get it. Though expensive, the formula is amazing. I am sure you will love it :)

Repurchase: Do I need to even answer this?? Yes!!!!

Living it up this summer in Pondicherry: My Entry for The Lakmé Diva Blogger Contest

There are many reasons to love summer :D When we were kids, summer holidays are about fun and frolic. As we grow our likings have changed and so does the way we enjoy summer. 

Most of the summer times I stay at home well the reason you ask? Simple most popular vacation spots are crowded with people. For me Vacation is something that should relax me and have some me time. But visiting popular locations during Summer scares me :P

But this summer is really different for me as my lovable friend Kyra is with me in Chennai. We are planning a small today trip to Pondichery to relax ourselves.

Pondichery is very special to me and I just love the simple beach and Coffee house near the beach. Spending time at the coffee house is a must whenever I visit Pondichery.  The ashram is another favorite of mine to visit. You get the calmness and you are instantly free of all your worries. These two things have made it a favorite place for me to visit any time of the year.

Well,  Since I am visiting this time during Hot Summer. I am spending a lot of time shopping for Clothes and Makeup  that will work for this scorching heat.

I am a lover of Cotton clothes always. And so visiting all popular stores in Chennai to get some Pastels and Floral prints. Don't you love them :D

With the summer heat too high this year, I am completely relying on a good sunscreen that will protect me from Tanning. I am getting the most popular Lakme Sunscreen along with thier De tan gel and Facepack. With these products I do not have to worry about burning or tanning my skin in the Sun. The best part about using Lakme sunscreen? Along with sun protection, my skin will remain healthy and young for a long time :D
I am not a fan of heavy makeup. For cosmetics I prefer neutrals for eyes with loads of mascara. I am experimenting with lips this time. I am planning to get some coral shades and a beautiful Coral blush.

I can't wait to spend time in Pondichery with Kyra and have fun in the sun without worrying about our Skin :)

Ps: This is my entry for Lakme Dive Blogger Contest hosted by Lakme Sun Expert at Indiblogger
