NEW! NIVEA Repair & Beauty for healthy and beautiful lips

A dual action product!
Women believe that beautiful lips are the ultimate symbol of
sensuality, so it’s devastating when they get dry and chapped. Chapped lips feel tight and we feel uncomfortable because we think that everyone’s staring at them. It can happen in any season because
the skin protecting the lips is extremely thin and has no sebaceous glands, so it is very sensitive to sunlight, wind and cold temperatures.
It quickly becomes dehydrated and loses its beautiful, healthy color.

New NIVEA Repair & Beauty solves both problems at the same time.
It has the Innovative dual-core technology for healthy and
beautiful lips

In addition to protecting and conditioning the skin it also adds a touch of color to make the lips look instantly healthy and beautiful again. The stick repairs dry lips, replenishes moisture and adds a rosy glow.

NIVEA Repair & Beauty unites care and color in one product. The white core
has a nourishing formula containing dexpanthenol, vitamin E, glycerin and
menthol. It is covered with a rosy external layer which restores natural healthy color to the lips.

Dexpanthenol is renowned for its calming properties and In conjunction with moisturizing glycerin, dexpanthenol binds moisture in the deeper layers of the skin so that dry and chapped lips can regenerate and turn healthy. Vitamin E is known for its anti-oxidative properties to work against free radicals and it actually helps to prevent moisture loss from the lips. Menthol is the ingredient responsible for the pleasant cooling sensation when the product is applied. “‘The conditioning core
doesn’t just protect healthy lips, it also helps to repair chapped lips and supports
the healing process,“ explained Dr. Frank Schwanke, Head of Product
Development Face Care and Lip Care at Beiersdorf.

The tinted external layer also contains a formula with conditioning ingredients such as jojoba oil
and shea butter, which helps to keep the skin soft and smooth and to restore smoothness to dry
lips. The pink pigments cover the lips with natural and healthy color.

Pick your NIVEA Repair & Beauty today and experience the innovation work wonders on your
delicate lips. Available at Rs. 149 in all stores in India.

The winter sun (OOTD)

After a heavy snowfall in the hilly areas around my city, today the weather is Beautiful! The sun is bright and shining so I took some photos for new outfit post. I wore my new sweater coat which I'd bought recently. Paired it with my favorite burgundy jeans and beanie. I took this lovely bag from OASAP which is really great. This PU leather bag is very specious and light weight as well.
It has several pockets inside and outside which makes it really special. This leather bag was giving a nice match with my leather shoes but not just with these shoes, it can be paired with many outfits. Being quite specious, I can keep plenty of things in it sparing enough to fit in more! I really love this bag, it's soft, very light weight and of course very reasonable in cost.

Maybelline NY 14 hr Superstay lipstick- review, swatches & LOTD

Maybelline has launched a new range of lipsticks recently in India which is going to be quite popular among makeup lovers. Today I’m one of with this freshly launched lippie.The shade I got is Consistently truffle # 040

Maybelline 14 hours lipsticks have some tremendous shades which are really gorgeous and will be loved by Indian women because mostly the shades are for warm skin tones.
First I want to come on its packaging which could have been made more attractive. The lipstick comes in transparent packaging with white cap. You can see the lipstick shade from the packaging without opening the cap. I didn't like the concept of a white cap, it could have been either silver or transparent. It looks more appealing if you keep the cap separate. Overall I think it’s a average packaging.

Consistently truffle 040 is purplish brown shade with shimmers. It's a shade which will suit well to a warm skin tone but unfortunately this shade is not for me at all. After applying my lips look like purplish blue.
The texture of this lipstick is soft and silky. It glides on the lips like cream or butter. It has plenty of moisturizer in it so no lip balm is required before applying it.
The pigmentation is amazing. A single stroke provides plenty of color as this is richly pigmented. I applied it on my lips just one or two swipes and couldn't dare to apply more. So pigmentation is really great.

If I talk about its effect on my lips then I'll say it's not great but I'm pretty sure that the ladies with warm skin tones will look great in this shade. It didn't suit me but if I choose some other shades that suit me, no doubt, the effect will be great.

Now I'm coming at the most important part of this lipstick i.e. the lasting power that Maybelline has claimed for 14 hours. I examined it and reached at a conclusion that it's really long lasting but not 14 hours at all. It can last on my lips about for 6 to 8 hours which is really impressive but when it starts fading, it forms ugly patches which I don't like.
Finally, it's not as impressive as Maybelline's other products, I always loved their lipstick and glosses that are not only of great quality but also at very reasonable prices but this lipstick has disappointed me a bit. But still I would love to try out some other shades from this range because they have some amazing colors & I guess if you find some right shades for yourselves you will not regret buying them. You can check out this entire range- HERE


Rs 525/ £6.99


Available at all Maybelline Counters throughout the country & also online!

COB Rating- 3.5/5

 Have you tried any of these lipsticks from Maybelline NY??

Valentine's Day outfit: Black with a kiss of fuchsia

It's said that LOVE is everywhere in the air these you feel it? Personally I don't believe in a special day for love or something like that. I think that if you have some feelings for anyone, you should always love and care for him/her. Anyways these are my thoughts but millions of people believe in this day so today is an outfit for this special day.
Black is always my favorite color for any special day so I wore my favorite black skirt with black jacket with gold detailing. I wanted to make this look a bit special so I gave this black outfit a kiss of hot pink. Deep pink in between pink and fuchsia, so I took my favorite pink bag and pink heels and finished this look with touch of pink and smokey makeup.

I love this jacket with dull gold details from Seekers of Style!

Paired it up with a gorgeous bag from StalkBuyLove! It looks soo pretty...I feel this is the best bag in my collection! It's spacious, chic & the pink color with gold details looks fabulous!! This bag is surely a versatile one which can go with western as well as traditional outfits! Priced at a nominal price of Rs 1099, it's surely more than worth your money!!!
Last but not the least, I put on my lovely fuchsia pumps from!

I'm wearing: Jacket- SOS, Dress- Van Huesen, Bag- SBL, Pumps-, Earrings- Accessorize

Hope you liked this outfit!! Do share your outfit ideas for Valentine's Day!
