My Kryolan and Sleek Haul.

Where to buy Kryolan Makeup in India, Mumbai

In the quest of my Cherry Culture Package, I made run(s) to Custom office, which turned in vain.
And then I wanted to go to Kryolan City on Waterfield road, out of impulse. I bought my First Kryolan Blush. And I wanted the Ikonic Gel Pencils as well.

My long lost Sleek package returns home  and then I spot and lay my hands on TRESseme Keratese Shampoo at Supermarket and my HG Facepack with Free Scrub, I grabbed two tubes already. What can I even plead for?
My mom just renamed me, Greedy. No kidding. She did.

Let the Pictures do all the talking.

Other colors except the ones I bought are Aqua Blue, Gold and Silver.

Garnier Skin Naturals Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Review

Garnier BB cream, it is!

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!

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.

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

P.S. I was not paid or commissioned to do this. This post is for all the Carmex and Chapstick lovers around :)

From Craving to Shaving...

This post is a part of the 'Shave or Crave' movement in association with

I have learned: Stubble is the way to win a woman’s heart. Don't believe me? Read it here.


How to Ignite the Craving for a Stubble-Free Transformation in Men?

Join the "Shave or Crave" movement and let's tackle the hairy-beary epidemic together!

I've cracked the code on making men ditch the caveman chic and embrace the smooth look. Here's my foolproof guide:

1. Mock Him!
Give him a taste of his own stubble rebellion! I casually inquired if he was treating his beard to a luxurious shampoo experience along with his hair. The 'look' he shot back was a mix of disbelief and victory. Lo and behold, the next day, I was greeted by a dazzling clean-shaven masterpiece. Victory smells as sweet as his aftershave!

2. Gift him Shaving Essentials.

For the lazy guys with unruly stubble, gift them shaving essentials. Remind them so often that it becomes a background score to their life. Annoying? Absolutely. Effective? You bet. He'll be shaving daily just to shut you up.

3. Drag him to Spas and Salons.
Book those couple spa packages and, if needed, employ some gentle persuasion tactics - literally drag him along. Keep a watchful eye on him, not to be a snoopy spy, but to play pretend. Because nothing says "shave it off" like a pampering session that makes him appreciate the value of a smooth, clean-shaven face. It's spa day, not stubble day!

4. Ban the Stubble.
Set the ground rules - "No stubble days" are non-negotiable. If he protests, take him shopping with you. It's the perfect revenge strategy. Trust me; he won't risk skipping a shave again.

5. Be a Drama Queen.
Channel your inner soap opera star. Hype it up! Show off your acting skills. Throw in some dramatic sighs and gasps. Make a fuss about the stubble like it's the ultimate apocalypse of facial hair. Kiss and make up later, and he'll be running for the razor.
Stubble be gone, the curtain has fallen!

And for those days when he forgets to shave, here are five one-liners to drive the point home:

1) "Did you forget to look in the mirror today? Seriously."
2) "You might need a mask today, babe."
3) "I'm tempted to scratch that scoundrel stubble from your cheeks, eh."
4) "Did you drink that or your stubble did?"
5) "Believe me, baby, it'd take just a day for you to look like Tom Hanks in Cast Away."

P.S. Don't forget to *roll your eyes* while delivering these gems. Happy shaving adventures!
P.S.S. All the one-liners and guidelines are tried and tested. *wink*

No beards were harmed while writing this post. No harm intended - this post is all in good humor and is written for Blogadda.
