Hello Everybody!

Excited to share few things that I have recently purchased from The BodyShop. Its been a week or so that I have been using these products! Some of them are oldies and some are new in the market. So here is my first impression about these products!

Drop of Youth ~ Eye Concentrate

14803099_704499139702211_171404970_o

I have used the sleeping mask from their Drops of Youth range and was super impressed by it. I wanted to try their eye cream as well.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Body Shop’s Drops of Youth™ Youth Eye Concentrate is an effective roll-on pump eye product, taking its innovation from plant stem cell technology. The unique design supports a refreshing anti-fatigue and nourishing effect while improving microcirculation. Perfect for all skin types, use day and night. For a more intense treatment and for maximum benefit, use under your favorite eye treatment.

Smoother-looking skin
Fresher, more youthful eye contour
Reduced appearance of eye bags and fine lines
I have fine line under my eyes and I really wanted something which will help me with my under eye dryness and fine lines.

I read the “how to use”, I would just pump some out and roll it on without doing anything else and it would always be a little thick. Luckily I realized we’re supposed to dab around and under our eyes after application for absorption. This is how it works the best. It feels really smooth and soothing to the eyes. It doesn’t irritates the skin and feels really refreshed.

As of now I don’t see any difference on my skin but will update you guys soon on this

Vitamin E Moisture Cream

Product Description

The Vitamin E Intense Moisturizer contains an innovative wheat-derived ingredient with naturally occurring carbohydrates that are very similar to those found in the skin. This protective layer stays on the skin’s surface, acting like a water magnet to help maintain moisture levels, leaving skin feeling soft, supple and well-protected.

How it works:

Vitamin E and wheat germ oil help moisturize and condition skin while protecting against environmental aggressors and premature aging.
Community Trade organic olive oil, Community Trade shea butter, jojoba and grapeseed oils condition and moisturize skin.
A special wheat-derived ingredient provides a protective layer on the surface of the skin to help lock in moisture.
Many of my friends have recommended to use this cream and I can’t wait to use it. As of now I have just used it once and it feels really amazing. It really soaks into your skin and helps protect against prematire aging.

September Favorite


14625710_699135503571908_933270963_o

Hello Friends,

Fall is here! Very excited to wear those bold colors, scarfs and drink salted caramel mocha 🙂 Ahhhhh Fall I can’t stop loving you. Ok! Coming back to my September’s favorite, I am loving this product and I so recommend everyone to buy it. Its the Morphe 305S 35 Color Shimmer Nature Glow

14646644_699126513572807_1022413036_o

This is a perfect fall palette for every skin tone! Such pretty colors and all in one palette. I have never used any of its palette but I am so happy with this one

14677926_699126520239473_547644731_o

The Morphe 350S is all shimmer and does not contain any mattes but the shades are amazing. It comes with five rows of seven eyeshadows equaling to 35 eyeshadows.The formula of the shadows is just beautiful and highly pigmented. Its actually a good idea to dab your brush on your hand to prevent too much color going on. I even use my fingers to apply these eyeshadows and they work perfectly. The shadows in the 350S are smooth to apply, they are not chalky or powdery and doesn’t  have much fall out. The formula of Morphe’s eyeshadow is absolutely amazing and is better than a lot of companies. The price of the palette is awesome and you get 35 highly pigmented eyeshadows for $29.88 AUD ($22.99 USD). I bought mine from Amazon but you can also get it from their official website.

These are few colors that I am obsessed with. The one on the left are great for fall and the other one on the right are some amazing shimmery shades.  Most shades are warmer in undertone but there are some cooler shades as well. I’d say this palette is a pretty mixed neutral bag and could work on most skin tones and undertones.

These range from shimmery light and dark gold shades, to peachy shimmery shades, to soft and warm red shimmery and brown shades and more. You can create some amazing  looks with this palette. You’ll also get a good variety of both day and night time looks out of these.

Here is one of the look that I created with my morphe palette 🙂

IPSY November!


14454067_692785744206884_1001034398_o

Holla Everyone!

This is my last IPSY bag review for this month. This bag worked for some but for me it didn’t. Please suggest your favorite beauty glam bag that I can subscribe to! Thank you in advance. So here are the things that I got this month

Be a Bomshell Cosmetics Nail paint 

I got the color Va Voom. Its a beautiful dark blackish blue color and perfect for fall. The applicator was bit wide so you have to bit careful not to mess it up. It chipped in two/ three days which is actually ok. None of the nail paint stays that long on my nail. The most annoying thing was it removal. I had a bad time removing and it left a blueish stain on my nails

Waxing Kara Sweet lips (Organice Honey lip Balm) 

14467031_692785750873550_1645998473_o

Loved this product as well. Its works great on my dry lips. It has ingredients like sunflower oil and olive oil which works wonders on dry lips. Doesn’t have any smell to it but you can get the fragrance of essential oil. It is bit thick lip balm so watch out those who don’t like such texture

Tart Cosmetics Mascara 

14446428_692785747540217_1180596193_o

Not my favorite. The wand doesn’t work for me. Very messy and clumpy

Bellapierre Cosmetics 

14446272_692785764206882_358864823_o

Its a beautiful mineral blush in the shade autumn glow. It gives a beautiful and natural glow to your face. This translucent powder looks amazing on any skin tone.

Befine Food Skin Care – Exfoliating Cleanser 

14489723_692785760873549_735240873_o

The products describes as ‘Deep cleansing to gently slough and moisturize. Almond, naturally high in minerals, removes impurities. Brown sugar and oat calm and heal. This non-irritating light buffing cleanser clears away dull and damaged skin. Use every day to give yourself a mini facial’.

The particles are very grainy so be very gentle when massage your skin.

Thanks you for reading this. Please please please help me out with my next glam bag. Which one should I order? Lets chat please 🙂
