Giordani Gold Jewel Lipstick Review – Cerise Pink and Eternal Red


Product Description :
Cashmere-soft lipstick featuring a powerful blend of moisturizers for beautifully conditioned and hydrated lips all day. Intense color in classical shades with a lusciously creamy finish and medium coverage that lasts for hours. Presented in an exquisite golden designer case, this is the true jewel of your handbag.
 My Take !
Giordani Gold Jewel Lipstick is supposed to give you a “velvety moisturized look,” while still having the hydrating, comfortable feel of a balm.The Giordani Gold Jewel Lipstick is mostly full color coverage, and the texture was light-medium in thickness–noticeable but not heavy. The ultra-light, sensual texture leaves lips feeling soft and hydrated for up to 8 hours and is ideal for year round use .
I got the shade Cerise Pink and Eternal Red . The Giordani Gold Jewel Lipstick Eternal Red is a lovely luscious Red . It is very pigmented , but you can sheer it out . As I said they are very moisturizing and comfortable on the lips . When you first apply this on your lips , it looks shiny but later on it sets and leaves your lips looking velvety . Not matte but a slight sheen .
The other shade I got was called Cerise Pink . Let me tell you this is my favorite lipstick of the moment . The Giordani Gold Jewel Lipstick in Cerise Pink is the perfect bluish pink . This shade is the perfect ‘My lips but better’ . I absolutely loved it . It can be used as a day time tinted lip Balm . You can layer it up to get the Bullet colour . If you are going back to college I would recommend the Giordani Gold Jewel Lipstick in shade Cerise Pink .
I have reviewed allot of lispticks , from drugstore/hight-street to High end . The Giordani Gold Jewel Lipsticks are by far the best . In terms of pigmentation , texture , Price and packaging . Let us take a moment to talk how pretty the Giordani Gold Jewel Lipsticks are . It is soo luxurious , and fancy looking .They are a little heavy , kind off like a Ysl Lipsticks.
I would totally recommend the Giordani Gold Jewel Lipsticks , I have all good to say about these beauties and would totally recommend them .I am planning to get more of the lovely shades of the Giordani Gold Jewel Lipsticks and Review them . They have 10 intense colors to offer from nudes to dark reds , something for everyone .

Aishwarya Rai Cannes 2014 Makeup

Image Credit :Google

Cannes Film festival is a fashion and Beauty Galore . I’m always on the look out for the best dresses . L’Oreal Paris Brand ambassadors / spokesperson Aishwarya Rai walks the Red carpet every year along with Sonam Kapoor , Frieda Pinto at the Cannes Film Festival . There were allot of bitter talks regarding Aishwaria Rai Cannes 2013 Look , but seems like she redeemed herself . Although in my eyes she is a true Indian Beauty .

Image credit :Google
Aishwaria Rai wore a Roberto Cavalli Gold and Silver Gown for the Cannes film festival 2014 . It was a gorgeous Fish cut , floor length gown with a small elegant trail . She paired it with Minimal accessories and Bold lips . Aishwaria Rai’s was rocking the mermaid curls , which complimented her whole ethereal goddess look .


I created a 10 step process to get the Aishwaria Rai Cannes Film Festival 2014 look / Makeup Breakdown according to me .
Prime your face with Moisturiser or Primer , for your makeup to last all night and create a seamless base for your foundation .
1.Aishwarya Rai’s foundation looks full coverage yet photo friendly . I choose the L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation as it has a matt finish , yet looks very natural . If you have dry skin  you can go for the L’Oreal Paris Matte Morphose Foundation , which has High coverage and less spf . Both of these Foundations blend amazing and provide a velvety base . Blend the foundation with the Real techniques Buffing brush for a natural finish .
2.If you have Oily to Combination skin , I would recommend to set your makeup with a Matte Pressed Powder . The L’Oreal true match pressed Powder is an amazing option . Aishwarya Rai skin does look glowy but not greasy .
3. Aishwarya Rai had a mild contour going on . As I have said previously , a little bit of contour can make the major difference in photographs , especially at the Cannes where your going to be photographed from every angle .I would recommend the Bourjois Paris chocolate Bronzer for a matte look , or the Bourjois Paris Blush in Amber D’Or for a more summery glow .
4.She had a Rosy-peachy Blush that gave her the perfect youthful flush in her skin . I found theMaybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in fresh coral.Blend it with a fluffy brush for a more natural look.
5.After removing excess shine . Its time to use some Highlighter on the top points of your face ,places that naturally catch the light . Aishwarya Rai’s makeup look youthful , with precise highlighting . The Benefit High Beam is a Natural highlighter , which leaves your skin with the perfect sheen and glow . Apply it to the tops of your cheeks , down the bridge of your nose to get that Aishwarya Rai glowy youthful 2014 Cannes look.
6. Aishwarya Rai for the Cannes 2014 had some bold brows going on . Even though they had a natural shape , they were filled-in pretty heavily . I would recommend Mac Charcoal Browns for brunettes . Use the Real Techniques Angle Brush for precise application .
7. It looked like she dint have much going on her lids . It looks from the pictures like she had a white gold eye-shadow throughout her lid and and in the inner corner . It is hard to see because all the pictures her eyes are open . Apply it evenly with the help of a fluffy brush and blend it till the brows .The Gold also emphasized the blue in her eyes
8. Aishwarya Rai’s eyes are the most dominant feature . To accentuate her almond shape eyes . It was a perfect cat eye , with a small flick . Nothing too dramatic . The Mac Gel eye-liner in Blacktrack is perfect and Long lasting .Use a precise Eyeliner brush like the Real techniques eyeliner Brush , take your time to create the perfect wing .
9.She had a little bit of Kohl in her top and bottom water Line .The L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique is a perfect gel based liner which will not budge. Just to add some definition .Finish off your eyes with some dramatic lashes and Mascara . Loads of it on  your top and Bottom lashes.
10. The lips where the talk of the town , Aishwarya Rai 2014 cannes look will be know for that bold lip . It was a orangish toned Red lipstick .It was Matte but had a bit of shine which caught the light . I would got for Rimmel London Kate Moss Liptick in 01 .

Eau Thermale Avene – Re-Balancing Soothing Emulsion -Review


Description :

Protects and provides your skin with a true feeling of comfort. Paraben-free.Avène Thermal Spring Water, soothing, anti-irritating, provides your skin with an instant feeling of comfort.Its moisturizing key ingredient (Sodium hyaluronate) helps your skin maintain its moisture balance.Pre-tocopheryl shields your skin from free radicals.


My Take !

I received the Avene – Re-Balancing Soothing Emulsion product as a part of my Envy Box . I kept the sample in my hand bag , used it all up hence went ahead and bought the full size . I have been using the Avene – Re-Balancing Soothing Emulsion for nearly 4 months now . I used it on my Holiday to Middle east in the chilly December winters . I continued using it after I came back to India . The finest feature I like about the  Re-Balancing Soothing Emulsion is the way it leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated in any weather. Its like the outside climate conditions does not effect my skin at all .


The product feels very light and after massaging it into my skin if feels like I have not applied anything. At the same time leave my skin so soft, hydrated and glowing .I used the Re-Balancing Soothing Emulsion as a moisturiser and a primer , both ways it works wonders .

I have sensitive – oily acne prone skin and in the past I have used Avene products before and they are very good, specifically for people who have acne or any other skin related problems . They are also Paraben- Free which is plus for me .

I would recommend the Re-Balancing Soothing Emulsion for all skin types . It is a great daily moisturiser , perfect for the summers ,as the Avène Thermal Spring Water helps soothes the skin .

Long Long Hair The Secret UNVEILED !


My final Update – its been Over 4 weeks since I have used the Love Long Hair shampoo and Conditioner duo . This was initially sent to me as part of a Blind Test .I have been Loving the Product , they has been no denying that .
It lathers up so well , and the smell has grown on to me . I have barely dented the shampoo and conditioner bottle , considering I have been using it for 4 weeks . It would probably last me another month . Also as I mentioned I have really long hair .
Texture wise I feel my hair has become healthier , and more soft . The conditioner replenishes my hair with the vital nutrients and Oils  that my hair looses after shampoo. I use the Love Long Hair conditioner twice a week and its lite yet nourishing .

The Secret is finally Unveiled ! 
And the mystery duo is the ..
LoveLonghair3 (2)
Now knowing what I was using makes me like this Duo even More ! . Im a lover of the Garnier Fructis Leave In conditioners and their hair care line .Now thinking about it again , I feel the smell should have hinted me it was a Garnier Product . Because all the Garnier Fructis Hair Line smells out of this world . All in all I would repurchase this , and I do feel it is a great clarifying shampoo , moisturising conditioner which is perfect and would help hair growth allot. Also all garnier Hair products are pretty affordable which is always a plus for me .

may 771

Take Two of painting the Town Pink with Maybelline . People always do their Makeup , keeping in mind their Outfit .  Lets break the trend and not follow the rules , because the New girl is all about going beyond your typical boundaries and setting new standards .

These are some Outifit Ideas I created around the Pink Alert Products  .They are for the Girl Next door , simple yet edgy outfit .Pink is perfect for me ! If you are a girl who is not to excited about Pink outfits , I recommend you use Pops of pink and incorporate it in their outfit and make it their own style .It all about experimenting and Playing with Pink 🙂

Dare to Pink !


This is a punky Pink outfit . Perfect for College or movies .Pairing Dark denim with a Dash of pink scarf . To change things up and experiment with your accessories , I made a bow shape with my scarf to add in some cuteness factor . That’s just me I love bows , you can do other things , like adding a broach or some kind of flower accessories .Finish your look with the Maybelline Lip Polish in Pop 6 .Fun Fact they are so small and can fit in your pocket 🙂

Pink Jungle Fever 


Scarfs are the best way to add in some pop of color into your outfit . Mind you these scarfs are very thin and light perfect for summers . Who says you cant wear scarfs in summers ?? I cant hear you !!

Add in some perky pink accessories . I love butterflies and Bows . Mixing a bit of metal can give a little Oomph to your outfit .Pick and Pair what every seems appropriate to you  .Tie up your entire look with a Bold Hot Red By Maybelline Matt Bolds , this is my favorite shade -Mat 4 Red 688

Style Me pink 


This is a perfect way to incorporate pops of pink in your outfit very subltely . For people who are not comfortable with rocking the Top two Looks, this one is for you . I used a Clutch from ,which has few shades of florecent Pink and teaming it up with a Faith Bracelet by trinkets . If you are a watch person , add some neutral toned watch and a pink ring . This way the Pink plays Peek-a-boo in you entire look . Finally complete the entire look with a Nudey Pink shade by Maybelline Baby Lips Loves Color in Cherry Kiss .

Love Long Hair – Review

Its been Over 2 weeks since I have used the Love Long Hair shampoo and Conditioner duo . This was initially sent to me as part of a Blind Test . We often Beauty Bloggers are asked to do such tests . My opinion has not changed much . I have been liking it even more .


Lately the weather in Hyderabad has changed dramatically , temperatures are getting low , its raining and strong winds  . I have been putting this duo on the test during the extreme weather changes . Let me tell you my hair hasn’t felt any cleaner and smoother ever . I have used allot of shampoos , for different weather conditions; to combat my dry hair in the winters and clarifying shampoos during the summers , this seems to work its wonders during both .
For those who don’t know about the Love Long Hair shampoo and conditioner it helps to gently cleanse and moisturize hair while controlling frizz. It is promoted to help hair grow long at the same time maintain its health and shine .
The main feature that makes the Love Long Hair shampoo and conditioner duo different when compared to others is that , this  deep cleans my hair and also moisture’s it at the same time . This Conditioner is so smooth and Milky which aims to replenish the moisture back in my hair . Leaving it shiny , bouncy and healthy after every wash . This plays a major role in keeping your hair healthy to promote its growth .
In terms of length I dint see a major difference . Also since I have long hair , it helps me maintain it and keep it frizz free .
Lastly I love the simple packaging . Its so sleek which I totally appretiate . I dislike shampoos and conditioners to have glass or other packaging because it will just get ruined in the shower because of the water and steam.
All in all I have been Loving this product . I will get back to you with the final reveal .Till then you can guess in the comments below.

I got this perfume as a Eid gift . But let me tell you , if I would have smelt a sample of this in the stores I would have purchased it within seconds !! . The Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia by Estee Lauder is categorised as a lush floral scent .


As a tuberose and gardenia lover, I was always looking for the perfect tuberose and/or gardenia perfume. The Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia by Estee Lauder is the answer in all its glorious beauty.


The Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia is so Clean, and so natural , its like  a bouquet of these beautiful magnificent flowers.

I consider this perfume a real piece of Art I am in love with the Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia by Estee Lauder. I have had people tell me it’s strong, but they are just jealous. Most people love it and give me compliments .I wish I had a scent feature on my blog so that you can smell it and understand why Im so obsessed.
