Current story of my life: Tons of pictures and more than 10 half-written posts lying in laptop. Decides to post one at any cost on Saturday..Keeps staring at post.. Moves on to write another post.. Doesn't likes that either.. Starting taking pictures in sweltering heat in balcony..comes back..closes all the folders and documents.. heads over to Fridge.. Picks up an Appy fizz (cool drink to hang out with) and grabs a packet of uncle chips from a drawer in kitchen.. starts watching a movie/reading a book..
Okay, not a compulsion.. o_O
I want to tell you two things:
Sometimes, the signature look we have adopted for ourselves can cripple us. I had been sporting winged black eyeliner for many years, only with change in lipstick color. I wear smokey eyes and colored eyeliners only occasionally. That changed completely one day (4 months back, to be precise). As I was getting ready in morning for work and was about to draw lines on my eyes using my black eyeliner, my hands stopped. I felt bored. I was in a mood for wearing a subtle bright pink lipstick that day. I had a quick glance at my eyeliners and picked up a navy blue eye pencil. I drew the lines, noticed the change and felt so good.
I and my friend were waiting in a restaurant for the waiter to get the bill. I noticed a lady (somewhere in her 50s, I guess) entering. She sat right across my table and I couldn't stop staring at her for a few seconds. I realized how beautifully she had done her eyes. She wore a dark purple eyeliner which was sealed with a very thin stroke of black eyeliner, so as to not allow any skin to show. She was wearing a peach blush and peachy brown lipstick along with that. She looked lovely! Her makeup complemented her all-white outfit perfectly.

Ten days back, I happened to came across THIS post and it felt like I was reading about my life bit by bit. I am only talking about the part till "How I dealt with the nightmare years." And I have to say, I did not feel good at all.
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you might recall that I took a short break from blogging more than one year back and wrote THIS post. However, the truth was that I never took a break from it fully, not even close to it. I was still working on some advertising opportunities and ideas which kept cropping in my head.
Makeup Revolution and affordable eyeshadow palettes are kind of synonyms. At least, that's what I read online several times when I browsed through their reviews. So when Nykaa finally launched the brand, I was super excited about owing at least one eyeshadow palette from them. I shared some pictures of it previously HERE.
It was one tough job zeroing in on only one!
Lip balm was the first beauty product I ever owed. I am pretty sure this holds true for many of you ladies out there too. Needless to say, I totally heart them and hoard them like crazy. So when Island Kiss team asked me if I would like to try out their lip balms, I couldn't say no. Here are my thoughts on them:
