Bobbi Brown Nourishing Lip Color (Review) + more Spring-Summer Launches!

 

When I think of natural makeup, Bobbi Brown is one of the first brands that pops in my mind. At a time when the whole industry was focussed on high drama and color, Bobbi Brown started her brand by creating 10 shades of earth toned lipsticks and that is how this iconic brand was born.

Her recent launches this summer further impress on her minimalist, natural makeup philosophy and I had the chance to discover some new products at the Spring-Summer launch event last week. Its all about the glow this summer and here’s a peek at some of the new products hitting Indian shores this summer –

Beauty Chat : What’s your favorite neutral eye shadow palette?

 

My favorite neutral eye shadow palette is the LORAC Pro Palette. It contains 16 neutrals ranging from pale to dark colors and has 8 matte and 8 shimmery shades. The colors are incredibly pigmented & buttery and the color palette works really well for my skin tone. The quality of each eye shadow is amazing and overall the palette gives you a lot of variety for different looks. See review and swatches here.

When I have to travel with only 1 palette, this is my palette of choice!

1. What’s your favorite eye liner?

It keeps changing as I discover new products. Currently its the Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eye lining Pen. Its a brush tip liner and it makes winged eye liner so much easier! Reviewed here.

 

2. How long do you usually wear your hair?

I like my hair slightly long, a few inches below the shoulders though I got it cut two days back and I’m loving the shorter do for the summer! The ends were quite damaged from the coloring and straightening last year so it was time to chop it off.

 

3. What was the last TV show/movie you really enjoyed?

War and Peace. Its a BBC mini-series that came out earlier this year. It was really well made and even if you don’t enjoy period dramas generally, you might like watching this one.

NARS Laguna Illuminator : Swatches, Review

 

Hey everyone!

I was reorganising my makeup collection last weekend and I realised I had a couple of NARS products which I hadn’t reviewed! NARS is one of my favorite high end brands and I bought a few products before moving back to India from Japan last year. One of the items I picked was the Laguna Illuminator. I had a tough time choosing between Orgasm (peachy gold) and Laguna and ultimately chose this.

Price : $30 for 30 ml (I bought it for JPY 3500)
