MAC Shadescents Ruby Woo Lipstick

 

Hi everyone! The MAC Shadescents collection, which consists of 6 fragrances inspired by the most iconic MAC lipsticks, hits Indian stores on March 17th! They have relaunched the 6 lipsticks as well in a limited edition packaging and I have to say, the color-coordinated tubes looks really sleek and beautiful. There are 6 lipsticks (Rs 1500) and 6 coordinating perfumes (Rs 4500) in this collection – Heroine (purple, matte), Ruby Woo (deep red, retro matte), Lady Danger (bright coral red, matte), Candy Yum-Yum (bright neon pink,matte), Velvet Teddy (neutral nude, matte) and Crème d’Nude (pale beige, cremesheen). I received the Ruby Woo set for review. I am a HUGE fan of the lipstick so I was quite keen to try out the perfume.

The Body Shop Black Musk Fragrance : Review [New Launch]

 

Hey everyone!

The Body Shop‘s White Musk fragrance was one of my first perfumes a few years back and I was quite excited when they recently launched the Black Musk collection, closely after the Red Musk launch last year. This new fragrance is the darkest, most sensual musk according to the brand and fans of sweet, wintery fragrances would quite like this one! I’ve been testing out the 3 products from the collection – the Eau de Toilette, the Eau de Parfum and the Perfume Oil since a couple of days and here’s my review.

This is how the brand describes the Black Musk scent : Envelop yourself in luscious, mouth-watering notes of bambinella pear, spiked with pink pepper and bergamot accords to capture pure desire. Be captivated by delicately sensual heliotrope – an intoxicating scent that oscillates between marzipan and almond – intertwined with a stimulating aphrodisiac touch of the mysterious gourmand liquorice root accord. Then gradually be seduced by the deep and powerfully addictive trail of warm bewitching black vanilla, magnetic black musk, earthy patchouli and chocolate-like vetiver notes. 

The Black Musk Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum contain Community Fair Trade organic alcohol crafted from sugar cane that is harvested by co-operatives in South America. In Cotopaxi, Ecuador, smallholder farmers re-plant the trees they use to heat this sugar. This helps them to grow their business while sustainably protecting the land.

Products I’ve used up! (Vol.2)

 

Hey everyone!

I’ve used a few products in the past month and I thought I’d do an empties post to just share mini reviews of the products I used up. I’m very bad at using up skin care/body care products as I tend to always have more than 1 product at a time but I’m now on a mission to use up all products before I buy anything new. So you can expect more empties in the coming months!
