Ink blue

Here I am down with cold and super irritated because of it. I was browsing few sites and blogs and that was irritating as well. Hence I thought why not divert myself and actually do something productive like blogging! And I must say im loving it, until I have to add something or add an attachment and don’t get the hang of it cos well I’m technically handicapped!
Anywhoo, three months back I was in Banglore at the phoenix mall with no intention to shop( ya let’s see how that worked!) But entered the AND store. And the moment I entered the store I loved almost everything. But what I loved the most was this ink blue tunic. It looks like a shirt from the front but like a maxi from behind. This is not something very new but I knew I had to buy it! In theory it’s not the best thing to wear considering my body type. But sometimes you have to ditch the rules and just wear whatever the hell you want.
A few pointers for the curvy girl(and by curvy I mean pear shaped):
1. Choose black bottoms! Be it jeans, leggings or jeggings. This would hide your problem area as well as doesn’t take away attention from the beautiful tunic.
2. As its flowy, your bottom half should be tight to give proper symmetry.
3. This tunic itself is a statement piece, hence keep rest of the look minimal.
4. Wear heels! Period.
5. Smile and be confident. You are looking sexy and fashionable.
I hope these pointers help you.
I wore the tunic with black leggings from mango and black sandals and stone earrings of the same colour. I let the tunic speak.
My make up included light black and silver smokey eyes, winged eyeliner and red lips.

Review- maybelline color show glitter mania shade all that glitters 601

Hello you lovely people,or just a person. My lack of blogging has made me lose my blog readers which is sad, but doesn’t stop me from blogging now and then. I try to blog but no Internet connectivity and no laptop is the reason why im unable to blog. Anywhoo im here today to review the new range of nail paints by maybelline. They are called glitter mania. The word glitter was enough for me to go raid them.

My love for gold is eternal and with a hell lot of weddings to attend, glittery gold was the best option to buy.

REVIEW:

Brand: Maybelline

Shade : all tha glitters 601

Range : Color show Glitter mania

Quantity : 6 ml

Price : INR 125

The shade is not very golden-ey, rather its gold toned champagne shade. It looks stunning on my complexion I.e wheatish complexion. Two coats of it is enough to give proper colour and shine. The paint doesn’t chip for about 4-5 days(i.e if applied without topcoat), and post that the glittering effect starts to wear out. I think thats awesome. Normally nail paints start chipping real soon. This range of nail paints do not have lot of glitter and shine, but just the right amount of glitter to add that much needed glamour to your look. The packaging is neat and classy, it looks exactly like the colour show nail paints. This range has 8 shades which is superb and im dying to buy all of them.

FINAL VERDICT:

Shade: 5/5

Durability : 5/5

Shine : 4.5/5

Product availability : 5/5 (available almost everywhere)

Will I repurchase : yes!

Overall verdict : 4.75/5

All in all this product is a must buy. For the price offered, this is one of the best products launched in the recent times. Maybelline has proved itself yet again. They have improvised themselves in every way possible. Not only are the products really good, also the branding is appreciating. A very impressive work by maybelline.
