AN INDIAN OUTFIT PERFECT FOR ‘FALL’- OOTD

Hey all. Today I shall not do a lot of talking. I am leaving you with pictures of an Indian outfit. If you had seen my post on DELHI COUTURE WEEK (if you haven’t then check HERE & HERE ), you would have noticed that combinations of white, black and red was the most common. Though I had got my suit before the fashion week, I knew this colour is perfect for fall. It has a lot of embroidery and prints. Thats just my style. I majorly bought this suit because of the dupatta.
Have a look at the pics-

Semi stitched suit- Boutique called FIDA (Delhi)
White pumps- lifestyle (Last worn- HERE)
Watch- Polo Club
On my lips- Ambika Pillai (Review- HERE)
I went for red lips and white pumps,which is very unusual because people generally go for juttis or stilletoes or sandals, to give a modern touch.
P.S- These pics look so matrimonial!

AN EXPERIMENT WITH PRINTS-OOTD

Hey all. How was the weekend? Mine was great. As I am leaving Delhi in a month, my friends sort of gave me a farewell. I am touched. How little surprises just bring a smile on your face. Anyways if you follow me on twitter (if not, then do follow me HERE), you would know that I saw 4 movies back to back. Yes I told you , I am a movie buff. I saw a movie called ‘hairspray’. It’s a broadway musical. I rarely enjoy musicals. But this movie just cheered me up. Its amazing. You got to see it. Seriously. No kidding.
Coming to the outfit, this is really an experiment for me. I am still trying to come out of my comfort zone and try different things. I love animal prints and who does not love polka dots. So I mixed all of ‘em to see how it works.
Feel free to ignore the bin please.
 
The lip colour I am wearing is bronze orange from MAYBELLINE (love)
 
Did I mention how much I love this snake print cross body bag!

I got these gorgeous shoes after thinking a lot. I was not sure if I would wear leopard print lace ups, because if I am investing a lot of money in something I should be able to use it a lot of times and get maximum worth. I haven’t exactly worn them a lot of times. Just TWICE. Yeah. But whenever I wore them, they surely did turn heads.
 
I am not sure if I did it right. I just tried something. You have to tell me how it looks. Is it a yay or nay ?
Show some love by commenting and telling me if you liked the outfit or not.
P.S- I am submitting this post for the InFB remix
 
 
 
 

RED HOT LIPSTICK- REVIEW

Hello lovely readers. If you have been reading my blog, you would have noticed that the blog has a new look. And those of you who are new, my blog got a makeover. I had earlier said that I would be having new features on my blog. Well this is the first segment. I will review beauty products that I use (which is definitely going to be rare) , because I am not a make-up hoarder. But I do have the basic essentials which a girl needs and I shall try my best to give you honest reviews about them. This shall be a weekly feature.
Today I am going to review a lipstick which I recently bought from AMBIKA PILLAI. I was searching for a perfect red lipstick, and bam I found one that suits my colour tone perfectly. The colour is called RED HOT.
BRAND- Ambika Pillai
PRICE- INR 420 (approx) after 40% discount.
COLOUR NAME- Red hot.
QUANTITY- 3.4 ML
SWATCHES-
the light and the mirror 
I hope you can read the ingredients properly.


This colour is perfect for everybody. My complexion is wheatish and suits me very well. Rather I would say it’s the perfect red for me. It has tangy undertones which is said to be the best for wheatish complexion. You will have to swipe it twice to cover pigmentation of the lips.
The colour stays for good 5 hours.
The texture of the lipstick is the best part. Its creamy and glides over the lips amazingly. But at the same time it gives a matte look.
The packaging of the material is also good. The mirror and the clickable light is so awesome. It helps to use the lipstick where you do not have enough light. I have not seen this kind of thing in any of the product and this feature makes it stand out of all the lipsticks.
AVAILIBILITY- I am not sure if its available everywhere. I stay in delhi so I found it here.
WILL I REPURCHASE- yes. I am looking forward to buy a few more shades in this range

OVERALL VERDICT- the lipstick is a beautiful red which will suit almost all skin tones. The texture is good and it gives a matt look. The staying power is around 4 hours with eating and drinking and later it leaves a red-pink sort of tint. I would love to buy this product again only if its on discount. If I had to pay the original price, I would go for brands like MAC.


RATING- 3.5/5

I hope the review was helpful. Do share your views about the product.




P.S- The product was purchased by me.
