Spring-Summer launches from Clinique India

 

Hi everyone! Yesterday I attended the launch of the new Clinique Fresh pressed system and BIY Blend it yourself pigment drops at Verbena, Lower Parel. The setting and ambiance was so lovely with lots of light and greenery, I thought I’d share a few pictures from the launch with you.

The Fresh pressed range has 2 products – a powder cleanser that comes in one-time use satchets and a Vitamin C Booster Emulsion that you can add to your moisturizer for powerful anti-ageing and brightening benefits. The new launch in makeup this season are the BIY pigment drops that allow you to create a custom coverage base product, with the texture of your choice. It reminds me of the CoverFX Custom Cover drops! There’s also a new mascara which once again plays to the custom theme, you can basically vary the amount of product picked up by the wand to get a natural or dramatic look. I’ll be reviewing all these products once I’ve had the chance to try them out for a few weeks. Happy weekend!

My Top 10 Spring-Summer Beauty Essentials

Spring-Summer Beauty Essentials

 

As spring slowly eases into summer, its time to update our beauty routines if you’ve not done that already! Its time to switch the lush oils and creams for lighter, non-greasy textures, ditch the vampy lip colors and smokey eyes for pop liners and cheery bright lip colors.

I’ve picked out my top 10 spring-summer beauty essentials below!

 

1. Face Cleanser | It’s very important to change up your skin care as the seasons change. Skin tends to get a little oily as the weather starts to warm up. This seasonal change can cause clogged pores and pimples. I absolutely love using Forest Essentials Mysore Sandalwood & Nagkesar Masque when my skin needs a deep, non-stripping cleanse. This also tightens and brightens skin slightly, drawing out unwanted impurities and excess oil. In fact, it’s one of my favorite picks and I recommend using this once or twice weekly.

 

2. Hydrating Face Cream | This is also the time to change your moisturizer, especially your night cream. While I love using facial oils in winter, I prefer something a little lighter in Spring-Summer, without compromising on hydration and anti-ageing benefits. The Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream is the perfect option for ladies in their late 20s-early 30s as it provides ample hydration in a gel-cream formula and addresses early ageing concerns as well!

 

3. Dry Shampoo | I think a dry shampoo is a must for sweaty Indian summers! It’s the time of year when scalps experience increased oiliness, leading to limp, greasy looking second day hair. A dry shampoo absorbs excess oil and adds lift and texture to the roots. The Batiste Dry shampoo in Blush has a lovely mild floral scent. Plus, it doesn’t leave white traces and the small travel size is perfect for carrying in one’s handbag!

Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum

 

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great Saturday. Today I’m sharing a few pictures of the lovely Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum with you. I love taking photographing perfume bottles, especially ones as beautiful as this one! Guerlain has relaunched in India and we have their luxurious makeup, skin care as well as fragrances to look forward to. The latest perfume to join the ranks at Guerlain is Mon Guerlain, a lovely oriental floral which is very wearable for both day and night. It is very reminiscent of Giorgio Armani Si (which I reviewed recently) but a bit smoother and a little less sweet. I’m going to take some more time to test this out so stay tuned for a more detailed review in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, you can feast your eyes on the beautiful, classic crystal bottle! Happy weekend! 🙂

Wedding Inspired Makeup Looks | VIDEO

 

Hi everyone! Wedding looks are always so much fun to create and I partnered with Nykaa to create two beautiful wedding inspired looks. The first look is a Royal Wedding look where I’ve done a soft golden brown eye paired with a deep wine lip. I loved the green anarkali and the temple jewellery that the stylist arranged for this look at the shoot. This is a timeless look that can be worn by anyone, whether you are the bride yourself or just a wedding guest. The second one is a completely different look and I explored a cooler color palette for this Reception look. The focus of the look is the eye makeup, wherein I used a sparkly pigment to create an evening eye that is bold and striking! Hope you enjoy both these videos.

Nykaa Matteilicious Lip Crayons – Swatches

 

Hi everyone! Nykaa has just launched the Matteilicious Lip Crayons – matte lip crayons with a comfortable, long wear formula. They come with their own sharpener and these are priced at Rs 650. The creamy formula has a true matte finish that is somewhat forgiving on the lips but I would still recommend buffing and moisturizing your lips before application. The staying power is excellent and even the lighter colors stay for a good 4-5 hours. There are currently 4 shades in the range, I’ve swatched them below.

What do you think? Any of these shades catch your eye?
