Humble Bee Luxury Orange Body Butter

Humble Bee Luxury Orange Body Butter – Review : A foray into Handmade Body Butters this Winter

Hi everyone! I recently shared a bunch of products that I received from Humble Bee Luxury on my instagram page. And thank you for the overwhelming response. 🙂 As majority of you requested, I have the review of the orange body butter in today’s post.

About Humble Bee Luxury :

Humble Bee Luxury is the brainchild of Harshil and Devashree, a couple based in Vadodara. Another indigenous brand cooking up recipes organic to the core, catering to skincare and bathing needs. I told you before and I tell so again, I’m so very proud of brands like Humble Bee Luxury and Aroma Essentials, who make wonderful products with so much skill and panache. Their products are just as effective and sans harmful chemicals. Could it get any better in the beauty game?

Gothic makeup Looks

Festive Look Book: Gothic Inspired Makeup Looks, and some shedding of Fears…

Hi lovely readers,

Hope you’re still reeling in the festive fever. I think I’m too, because just as much I have nothing to do with Halloween, I just had to snatch the opportunity to do this post. I prefer going easy on makeup most times, but in today’s post I have looks that we all should try, at least once in a while! It took me quite some courage to step out of my comfort zone, and create some dark looks with a dose of Gothic. But again, a few of them are subtler versions that you can categorize under fall makeup as well. For a look or two, I put my creative hat on and let Pinterest inspire me. 🙂

I won’t be elaborating a lot on the base, as there’s a lot to talk about the color cosmetics. The base makeup has the Colorbar Perfect Match Primer, L’Oreal True Match Concealer, Maybelline Fit Me foundation and The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion foundation. Also for all the looks I kept my brows really stark and used the darkest shade from the MUA Brow Kit. It is a dark brown that works pretty well for me.

Estée Lauder Pure Color Love Lipsticks

Festive Favorites : My Top Ten Lip Colors this Season

Hi everyone! Wish you all a very happy and blessed Diwali. You must be at your festive best and so must be your homes. 🙂 I’ve been juggling quite a lot between work, home and my blog. I actually did shoots for two posts in a day. Whew! Kinda exhausting, but I enjoy it so much.

Today I will share with you my favorite lippies for this festive season. I have my favorites from bot high-end and drugstore, and lippies with different textures. Since it’s autumn and festive, most of my favorites are richer hues, but I do have a few subtle neutrals as well. Please note that the list is a random order of my favorites, and it is not in any order of preference. 🙂 Read more

Aroma Essential Milk and Chocolate Scrub

Aroma Essentials Chocolate and Milk Scrub is all about Pure Chocolate Indulgence…

Hi people! First of all, a very big sorry to all you lovely readers for not posting anything since long. I had a lot going on at the personal end, and work pressure at office peaked. Could catch up with hardly six hours of sleep at night. Some days, even less. I wasn’t looking and feeling the best over the past few weeks and blogging took a backseat. And I hated it.

I was dying to write. Dying. Not a day went by when I didn’t look forward to a blank canvas and wanted to scribble my heart out! This space is my own, and writing liberates me. And I’m so glad to be back. 🙂 I have a hoard of product reviews wriggling inside my head. That I’m going to share with you by and by. But let me start off with this wonderful Chocolate and Milk Scrub from Aroma Essentials. 🙂

Not My First Stint with the Brand…

I had used their face mask before that B got me from B’lore, and loved it to bits. This kind lady Madhurima then sent across quite a few products for me to try out. And yes, I ain’t compelled to review any of them. 😀 The reason I’m doing so is ‘cause I want you people to know that vegan products exist, and they’re available big time! And as long as wizards like Madhu and the Ashers (names behind Juicy Chemistry) exist, magical concoctions are bound to happen. 🙂 Read more

Hi everyone! I’m going to do another TBS post today. I so adore their products. 😀 I happened to buy this TBS Glazed Apple Shimmer Mist quite whimsically the other day I was visiting the city mall.
