And is associated with
partner sites like Snapdeal, Myntra, Dominos, Firstcry, Yatra, Paytm, Redbus, Foodpanda & 350 more.
Cashkaro’s rationale is to provide its members with the best savings and help them earn money on their online shopping.The Best part is you can receive cashback even with discounts and coupon codes. How works and offers you cashback:
Join Cashkaro for free. offers two easy and free ways for you to save:

a) Earn thousands of Rupees in CASHBACK! Follow these 4 simple steps:

1. LOGIN to your Cashkaro account
2. SEARCH for the website you want to shop at e.g. Myntra, Yatra
3. GO TO your chosen website via Cashkaro & shop as you normally do
4. That's it, nothing more to do! Since you went via us you will AUTOMATICALLY GET CASHBACK in your Cashkaro account within 48 hours!

For example, go to Myntra via Say you spent Rs 600 on Myntra, we shall pay you Rs 180 cashback. Request payment to your bank account whenever you want!

b) Coupons: In addition to cashback, we also have hundreds of coupon offers. Just use our coupon codes at the e-commerce sites and get instant savings. Plus we always pay you cashback on top.

For example, say you use a 15% off Myntra coupon, we shall still pay you Rs 180 cashback for every transaction. You simply cannot get a better deal!

We even have Free Cashback offers. For example, take a Rs 1 trial of Reliance BigFlix for 1 month. No commitment and cancel anytime. We shall pay you Rs 50 cashback just for taking this trial.

I find it amazing receiving Cashback, even with availing discounts. And You can receive Cashback via NEFT or Cheque payment once you reach the amount of 250 INR within 3-4 days. I only knew about when they contacted me to provide a review.

Below are some popular questions asked by our members.

What is Cashkaro and how does it work?
With Cashkaro, WE GIVE YOU FREE CASH when you shop at any of our 350+ online partners like Myntra, Yatra etc. All you need to do is go to the retailer's website via & then shop! Retailer pays us commission and we give you cashback from that. PLUS we also have coupons so you can get BOTH savings in one place - why go anywhere else?

Give me an example of a saving I can make...

For example, if you visit Myntra via Cashkaro & order for say Rs 400, you get Rs 180 cashback on your order! PLUS we also have Coupons that give you instant discounts!

Which retailers can I save on? works with over 350 retailers like Myntra, Yatra, Dominos, Yebhi, Jabong, Makemytrip, Snapdeal, Homeshop18, Indiatimes Shopping, Zovi, Firstcry, Goodlife & 175 more!

I made a purchase via What happens next?
When you visit a website via and place your order, you will automatically get an email from us within 72 hours stating the cashback due to you. You will not see any specific message about your cashback on
the retailer's website, but within 72 hours you will see the cashback added to your Cashkaro account automatically! Retailers take this time to inform us of your order, hence we take this time to update your earnings.

When does my cashback get Confirmed & paid?
Initially your cashback remains in Pending status as retailers wait for return/cancellation period to pass. Then they pay us in the next payment cycle so it usually takes between 60-90 days for your cashback to get Confirmed & then you can request payment.

How do I request payment of my cashback?

Once you have Rs 250 in Confirmed cashback, log in to your account and go to the ‘My Account’ tab on the top right. Click on ‘Payment’. Please submit your Bank transfer details and your cashback will then be paid to you with 3-5 working days.

This is great, how can I tell my friends?
Just log into your account and go to the Refer & Earn section. On this page you can invite friends by email, Facebook or Twitter. Your referral link automatically gets sent. When you refer a friend, 10% of all cashback they earn accrues to you, for life! For example, you referred Rohit who earns Rs. 2,000 in cashback every year. 10% of this or Rs. 200 comes to you every time!

Here is the screen shot of the Cashback I received A Leading Cashback & Coupon website Review

The Best is giving now is:

180 INR Cashback when you shop at MYNTRA (above 400inr)
Increased 7% Cashback when you shop with Homeshop18

Lakme Lip Love Conditioner Review and Swatches

Lakme Lip Love Conditioner – Review

Lakme Lip Love Conditioner in Hottie, Flirt and Siren. Review, Swatches and on-my-lips pictures.
( That’s my analogy, I don’t know if it means anything else. )
Lakme Lip Love Conditioner Review and Swatches in Siren Flirt and Hottie

About Lakme Lip Love Conditioner:

I solely bought this for the sake of Packaging. Heart shape, Red mirror-shiny cap and round, slip-in-your pocket tub. I am oh-so-valentine-y always. I love to see them whenever I pull out my Vanity Drawers, they just attract my sight. I sometimes carry them around in my bag, for touch ups and no I don’t carry brush along. I use my pinky finger.
( What option do I have? If you are a genius, comment below with the idea )

Lakme Lip Love Review and Swatches in Siren Flirt and Hottie
Lakme Lip Love  Review and Swatches India

And also I love clicking them.
The Texture is gel like, glides on smoothly but the color does not looks even on lips. It tends to settle in lines . Chapstick ran over lips are must for these Conditioners. And if your Lips are chapped, you better stay away. It stays on for 2-3 hours if wore alone.
There is nothing I love about these Love Conditioners except for the packaging and colors.

Hottie is a Cool Toned Pink
Flirt is Coral Pinkish Color
Siren is a wonderful Coral.
*(In the pot)

The Oh-so-good about Lakme Lip Love Conditioner:
  1. Romance induced Packaging. All Lovey-Dovey.
  2. 4 Colors/Shades to choose from.
  3. It can be used as lip gloss over same color or alone.
  4. The Pigmentation is average.
  5. Light Vanilla Fragrance.

The Oh-so-unworthy about Lakme Lip Love Conditioner:
  1. Unhygienic Packaging of course!
  2. You need a Brush for application.
  3. It does settles in lines.
  4. Uneven texture on lips. It just sits there, no absorption or tint is left.
  5. Transfers easily.
  6. Bad staying power.
  7. Definitely not Light weight, Makes me conscious of having something on my lips.
  8. It won’t show up on heavily pigmented lips. Especially the color Hottie and Flirt.
Lakme Lip Love India Siren

Lakme Lip Love Flirt India

Lakme Lip Love Hottie

I ran out of thoughts here, happens every time, I look at them. And that never makes me regrets for wasting money on them. Well I just said it.

My Verdict:
If you are sucker for the packaging and would want one, to show off? Go for Flirt.
Its nice and pink and coral-ish and will suit fair to medium skin tones.

Rating: 1.5/5. Too Bad it seems.

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Review in Medium 2: Pure Beige

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse in Pure Beige: Medium 2

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Review in Medium 2: Pure Beige

About Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse:
Air-whipped liquid provides perfecting coverage for 100% poreless skin. Ideal for normal skin.
Oil-free, fragrance-free,  Dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested, non-comedogenic – won’t clog pores, safe for sensitive skin.

I bought Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse on impulse and still no regrets.

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse, a sturdy see through glass bottle with pump. The texture of Mousse is creamy and gives light to medium coverage. The coverage is slightly buildable but won't conceal blemishes and marks. The Finish on skin is Satiny-dewy and for time being skin indeed looks flawless.
The staying power is average, stays on for 4-5 hours and a li'l blotting or powder will be needed to control shiny T-zone or Cheeks.
I have Combination skin with T-zone and Cheeks Oily. And I need to blot and powder my face after 3 hours if I reach for this.

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Review in Medium 2: Pure Beige India

The Oh-so-Good about Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse:

  1. Dewy and Satiny Finish.
  2. Light to Medium Buildable Coverage.
  3. Photographs well with Flash.
  4. Ideal for Dry skin or Normal.
  5. Blends like a dream.
  6. Fragrance Free, All that good for Sensitive noses.
  7. Non-Comedogenic. So no clogged pores.
  8. Flawless Air Brush Finish, if applied suitable way.
  9. A tiny amount, just a blob is needed for the face.

The Oh-so-unworthy about Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse:

  1. Glass Bottle: Not Travel Friendly.
  2. Not ideal for Oily skin.
  3. Settles in Fine lines, if not blended properly.
  4. Shade Selection. One might have to customize to find ideal shade.
  5. Not for Humid Climatic Conditions unless you stay indoors in Conditioned Atmosphere.
  6. It transfers on the Phone. ( atleast for me )

My Verdict:

I love Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse for its Finish: Flawless and Dewy. So I tend to reach for it when my skin is dry and lifeless. This Perks up the glow and looks natural than made up.
I blend it with Fingers in hurry or Use a Foundation brush from wonder finish. I find stippling it quite tricky, since I have sensitive skin and I turn red in no time. Using a sponge is a way to go, if you need a little more coverage.

Change is in the air...

I have been away. Trying, testing and the time was all about patience. And in the mean time, the world took a turnover.
Nonetheless, I decided to take this space, seriously. Like Seriously.

Trying going Make-up free to wearing make-up every day. Mixing Blushes with Lipstick (I would never wear) to create 'that' shade, Mastering eye makeup (All thanks to Shaz), Experimenting everything and not repeating, Grooming my brows essentially like breathing. Ditching all Cleansers and marrying the good ol' oatmeal. Skipping moisturizer for Jojoba oil. Growing out hair, coloring them a shade darker. Nails : Glitter, Reds and Hot pinks. Following a Night regime, only to wake up glowing. Final solution for the Baby lash.
Eliminating Pizza & soda from diet (harder than I thought).

And then When I'm doing so much, I'd get back to old preaching self as well.

MUA BB Cream, Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, NYX Kryolan, Bourjois, Sleek, MUA Blushes, Tresseme Keratin Hair Serum, Its a miracle 10 Hair serum and spray India, Rimmel Stay matte Concealer, Rimmel Kate Moss #16, Sleek Heartbreaker Lipstick, Sleek Face forn Contouring Kit india

Hopefully. I'll capture my signature Daily makeup looks as well.

Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review Dewy Finish BB Cream

I am elated for more reasons I wish to mention. And then finding the dewy, glowy finish at the day's end. I picked it back when it was launched, hence the small tube, but boy! I need that 40ml tube soon, sooner!

BB creams in India

Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review swatch in India

Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review

What I l♥ve about Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream:

♥ The Texture, for dewy finish and No patchiness, No blending. I just use this one as moisturizer.
♥ No Greasiness. My skin is Normal/Combination.
♥ My cream blush blends like magic without disturbing the BB cream.
♥ No Breakouts! & SPF 24.
♥ Stays on for quite 5 hours.

What I am uneasy with:

I hate the long name though.

It does not provide coverage, I still like it. I am No Foundation - Concealer Person, so BB creams are for me.
I love it more because I got compliments. Doesn't that makes our day?

I like this more than Maybelline BB cream and MUA BB cream, perhaps.

For the love of Lip salves: Carmex and Chapstick in India!

Yes, Salves since I prefer them over tinted ones.

I am crazier than before and even more when I saw Carmex and Chapstick on an E-Commerce store.

Carmex Original Formula Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm Chapstick Moisturizer, Where to buy Carmex and Chapstick in India

Carmex Original Formula
Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm

199 INR each.

I was too skeptic about paying online, since I had never shopped with them before. But then the experience turned out quite good.
I ordered on 27th December 2012 and recieved this morning. So I'm happy as long as the products are intact. The tubes and jar were perfectly sealed. =)
Chapstick is on my Lips right now *Big Grin*

Okay, so I am trying flavoured ones next. :D
