Pantone’s Colour of the year

Hello you lovely people. I haven’t had been blogging regularly because of lot of personal issues and time issues. Let’s just say I’m dealing with a lot of bad things and just trying to overcome every problem I’m facing. That’s how life should be, don’t you agree?

If you are new to fashion let me tell you that every year a colour is chosen by Pantone which is followed by designers and all the fashion people.(please google for further info). So this year the colour is EMERALD GREEN. I am totally in love with the colour. Whenever I hear Emerald green the word sophistication pops into my mind.

I am listing down a few ways as to how you can incorporate this elegant colour into your wardrobe.

1. JEWELRY :

The best way to start wearing this colour is as jewelry. Emerald green colour stones and beads are my favourites. Emerald jewelry has been a Red carpet favourite for many celebs. If you want small doses of this colour, then wearing jewelry or accessories of the colour is the best option.

This is a perfect piece for the girls to wear it with casual as well as formal outfits. This beauty is available on stylefiesta.com 

2. CLOTHES :

 
Emerald green is such a colour which is bright and elegant at the same time. I am definitely going to buy a blouse or a maxi skirt of this colour tone. Emerald green would be apt for a dinner date. If you have a sober party to attend. you can wear long flowy gowns and for a simple outing you could wear blouses and tops of this colour. I absolutely would love to wear bottoms of the colour too. I have picked out a few items from MANGO India’s official site which are perfect for a fashionable outing (the best part is they are on sale!). 
 
                                           

3. SHOES AND BAGS :
 
If you do not want to wear and entire green outfit or if you feel the colour washes you out or whatever the reason may be, you could wear it in doses, in form of shoes or bags. I love emerald green suede pumps when it comes to shoes and slings and totes when it comes to bags. They just lift up the outfit and give a different look to the entire ensemble.
See how Rachel Bilson does her Green bag with a neutral outfit.

4. COSMETICS :

When it comes to cosmetics I am not very experimental. But I would love to incorporate this beautiful green in the form of eye liner. I even have this colour and I love it. Also for a festive look, I liked the combination of green with gold on my eyes. It made my eyes look big and pretty.

These are few ways how you can incorporate this trendy colour into your wardrobe. If you have other ideas do share.

LAKME EYECONIC KAJAL- REVIEW

So this dumbhead lazy (me), finally has a product review after ages. Its not that I haven’t bought anything, just that I’m too busy lazy to write a review. But then I thought I should stop being too LAZY and write a review.
I saw the ads of LAKME eyeconic kajal and the fact that Kareena was there, it tempted me a lot and so I went ahead and purchased this kajal.
BRAND- LAKME
RANGE- Eyeconic
PRODUCT- Kajal
PRICE- INR 199
QUANTITY- 0.3 g
SWATCHES:
 
 
This kajal is very smooth, which enables it to be used as an eye liner. Even though the texture is very smooth and creamy, it does not smudge very fast. The roll on stick is great. Its not very loose or tight and does not have the situation where it comes out but never goes back (like Maybelline). The packaging is black in colour and looks good and classy. I like its name, ‘EYECONIC’.
 
The kajal doesn’t smudge, and stays for atleast 6-7 hours and then starts wearing off. And yes its waterproof (win-win).
AVAILABILITY:   Its available in almost all stores, hence 4.5/5
WILL I REPURCHASE: Not anytime soon. There is nothing wrong in the product, but I’m in the mood of exploring new kajals. 3/5
OVERALL VERDICT:  4/5
All in all, it’s a good product. There is nothing I hate about the product, but there is nothing very great about it, except the fact that it can used as a kajal as well as an eye liner. The quantity is the only issue. But for that price, its decent. I shall buy it again after I will be done with exploring other brands.
But If you are looking for a decent priced, kajal cum eye liner, then go for it!
ITS NOT JUST FASHION, recommends Lakme eyeconic kajal!

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.
