    My favorite product would be Mac cranberry eyeshadow and tip would be :
    Add 4- 5 drops to cinnamon powder and mix it with honey and apply on face, it not only gives you an even tone but also reduces pigmented area and helps in pimple reduction too!

      July 7, 2011 / 10:01 pm

    Favourite product: blush. 😀 (MAC Melba)

    Beauty Tip: I like to apply ice to my face before putting on any makeup..

  7. Sowmya
    July 7, 2011 / 10:56 pm

    Great! I am so entering this.

    My most favorite product at this time is MAC’s Marine Life Highlight, that works amazingly well as a blush for me.

    As for a beauty tip, there is one that even lazy ol’ me follows religiously, using ONE simple household item – yogurt. Apply a mask of yogurt (or even fresh home-made cream) and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse for super-moisturized skin. For added tightness and tone, smooth a piece of cut tomato over the face, allow to set, then rinse. Voila! A fresh exfoliated glow in minutes!

    super awsome giveaway babes…… :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes:
    here s my HG tip, and i always tell this to everyone 😀
    😀 😀 😀 😀
    before my party makeups I rub loads of ice made of plain water ( or if i have lots of time i make ice cubes of rose water & rub those)
    Doing this would give u awesom (swallowed in bulb) glow, minimise your pores to a greatt extent. Girls with oily skin, MUST follow this too 🙂

    All the very best ankita with your giveaway…. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: way to goo girlie…….. :kissing: :kissing: :kissing: :kissing: :kissing: :kissing:

    My recent fav product is Lotus herbals cocomoist moisturizer!

    My tip would be to prevent for healthy thick black hair eat curry leaves 10-15 (in any form/raw/cooked/powdered) twice a week. I know its difficult but worth it on a long run 🙂 This is a secret I learnt from my mom, she is 55 now and still do not have a single grey hair! (Touchwood!!)

    Hey Ankita, Congrats on reaching the 6 months mark!
    I am only using GFC and email subscriber to enter.

    My fav product is a lip gloss and the color/brand changes a lot (right now it is revlon superlustrous gloss in cherry in the glow).

    My beauty tip: to reduce redness and swelling of a pimple/acne, dissolve a couple aspirins in a little water to make a paste and add a teeny tiny amount of honey, apply it to the spot and leave overnight.

    My fav product is the Amway artistry Face scrub that gives instant glow to dull skin.
    my beauty tip wud be: mix saffron in milk cream to apply on face n scrub after a 10 mins or so…u ‘ll get glowing skin in seconds..

  21. July 8, 2011 / 11:07 am

    my fav product is lotus 3 in one safe sun matte sunblock…, and my tip is apply lactocalamine thrice a day to lighten marks, and lotus gel creame as a night cream for pigmentation, these work for me

  22. Shai
    July 8, 2011 / 11:11 am

    I’ve done all the facebook requirements and blog requirements (all though Im not sure the link is working well, I seldom use links in my posts so am not too good at it). Not on twitter. Oh following you through subscription and GFC as well. Whew! A morning’s work for someone like me!

    My favourite beauty product is Chambor’s chocolat songe lipstick – I love lip colour and this was my fave always. Beauty tip is to apply a mask of besan and haldi (with water or rosewater for me) – it controls the breakouts and gives me an even tone.

    Good luck with the giveaway, may you get loads of entries!

    • July 8, 2011 / 5:39 pm

      Update: Went to blogger help and figured out how to do it properly. Its working now.

  23. Jinal
    July 8, 2011 / 11:43 am

    My Favorite product would be my MAC blacktrack fluidline….very versatile and must have.
    Beauty tip: Toning is the most important part of your CTM routine. If you follow a moisturizer after using toner it will get absorbed quickly without leaving any oiliness or greasiness. So never skip toning. Many say avoid toner with alcohol. But with my experience a toner without alcohol is not a toner at all. It would not suffice the job of toning. And the proportion of alcohol in toners is just safe for your skin. The natural toners will also have alcohol content but extracted from natural ingredients. So don’t be scared!! It’s a personal experience. 🙂

  24. July 8, 2011 / 12:33 pm

    My Favourite product is Lotus 3 in 1 matte sunscreen and Alpha moist moisture love them 🙂

    My tip is : i found it very tacky to remove my eyemake with just olive oil or almond oil so i started doing this from past few days.
    Take 1 spoon of almond or olive oil of your choice and add a spoon of hot water .. then start massaging over your eyes then slowly massage over your face. Take a moist cotton and remove everything after 2 mins.
    It removes my everyday face and eye make up without making me feel heavy .. instead almond oil is making my skin feel softer 🙂

    i subscribed waiting for the confirmation mail.

    8. I do not own a blog 🙁

    My fav beauty product is Clinique Blended Face powder .It gives u a flawless complexion which is neither oily nor matte just a poreless perfect canvas
    My B tip: Never overdo with skincare products and makeup!I was suffering from acne brkouts for the last 2 yrs and recently consulted a dermatologist who told me before 30 it is unnecessary to use a toner. I completely stopped using everything from toner and moisturisers. Now my skin adjusts itself on its own and and my skin is now acne free. The dermat told me 95% of us get cosmatic acne due to over usage of products. and girls always invest in a physical sunscreen instead of a chemical one. I use Clinique Blended face powder as my sunscreen and trust me I find no difference in my skin texture and I never get a tan with it.

    Finally A good luck to Ankita 🙂

    Mt fav beauty product (not a makeup product sorry!) is Vaseline healthy white body lotion. It is my every season lotion and I love it!

    Beauty tip: i)Using henna twice every month helps in reducing dandruff.

    Nice Giveaway Ankita!

    GFC: Rajeswari Sailesh

    My favorite product is Brihans Aloe Vera Gel. I use it as a moisturizer, for acne prevention, for burns, for cuts and boils and also as a hair gel!

    My tip: Add some aloe vera gel to lacto calamine lotion and apply on face. It can be used as a makeup primer or can be used alone with loose powder or compact. This retards oiliness for a long time.

    Hey Ankita.
    I just saw this giveaway post and I must say u have some really nice stuff in there!! 🙂
    I’ve filled up the form. I don’t have a blog of my own. So apart from that, everything is done!
    Do let me know if the form has been filled up correctly.
    My favorite amongst all make up products are lipsticks..and my fav lipstick is MAC Cosmo.
    My beauty tip is targetted at dark circles. Take fresh potato juice and cucumber juice and mix both in the ratio 1:1. Soak cotton in the mixture, place on your eyelids and keep for 20 minutes. Wash your eyes with cold water. This always works for me! 🙂

      You’re not late at all 🙂

      The sunscreen thing worked?Great! I find blending so difficult over the Lotus 3-in-1 matte sunscreen! What did u use?

      • Ritika
        July 13, 2011 / 5:32 pm

        I apply the Lotus sunscreen first and then give it 10-15 minutes to seep into the skin and then I apply the my moisturiser .I use Clean and Clear’s oil free one,may be coz its water is a little easier to blend in :silly:
        I am actually surprised to know you had problems in blending,mine blends in like a dream

        • Corallista
          July 14, 2011 / 11:08 am

 skin is normal/combi more than oily so when I apply Lotus 3-in-1 matte, it becomes very matte! But I shall again now 😀

  52. July 13, 2011 / 5:32 pm

    Hello Ankita!I filled the form,am following you via GFC,liked your page on Facebook and posting a comment here.My favourite product is Maybelline Eye Studio™ Lasting Drama™ Gel Eyeliner.It lines my eyes beautifully and lasts really long inspite of all the sweating.

    Hi Ankita, I have submitted the entry in the form .

    August 8, 2011 / 4:07 pm

    Hey Ankita, First of all heartiest congratulations on completing six months of your blog. I have also filled up the form for the giveaway. Hope you have already got my details.

    My favourite makeup product would obviously be my Kajal. Something that I can not simply do without. I have used several brand so far and recently bought a kajal pencil from Bourjois and Faces canada (your recommendation on IMBB)

    Beauty tip: Apart from the usual CTM exfoliation is equally important and for that I rely upto a great extent on home remedy. My take a mixture of home made yogurt+ Orange juice+ Tomato juice+ Gram flour+ Oat meal. Apply this mixture all over your face and neck and let it dry. Scrub lightly while removing with water and get a clean and refreshed face. This pack help a lot in tan removal.

    Filled Form…
    Fav Prod: Lakme 9 to 5 defining eyeliner, coz of its easy application and long lasting power.
    Beauty tip: Smokey eyes look is one thing that’s really difficult esp. for Indian skin tones. So try to get it once when you’re free and not when trying to get ready to go somewhere or when in a hurry. Once you get an hand of it, you can wear it any time, even in a hurry, and get, set, go… – This was my trial:

Its one of my must haves and I use almost everyday…Beauty tip:If you have dry flaky skin on the face, here’s a night routine that will add glow to your skin. Dip a face towel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wipe face with this. When the skin feels warm, it is time to massage in some skin tonic and almond oil.

    Hi Ankita,

    Chanced on your blog while looking for the perfect red lipstick. I really like your tutorials- perfect for someone venturing into the world of make up. My quick fix beauty tip is to apply red sandal wood powder mixed with lacto calamine as an overnight spot treatment for pimples. It dries them out, and reduces redness so they can be concealed easily. My favourite product is Neutrogena SPF50 Sunscreen- suits my skin and leaves me confident about travelling around even at the peak of the Indian summer. Looking forward to more reviews and tutorials. Wish you all the best! 🙂

So atleast 3 days a week at night I cover my face with whatever fruit it eat. Papaya, watermelon, strawberry, orange and apple top my list
