This post is for all of you who sent me so many messages after watching my Instagram story where I gave you a tour of the Givenchy counter. Yes my pretties, that counter is very much in Kolkata and Givenchy is here with their range of makeup, skincare and fragrance. Just head to Shoppers Stop, South City Mall and you can shop to your heart’s content. A few days back, Anubha Agarwal, Givenchy Makeup Expert and Trainer was in the city for a couple of days and I met her to know more about the brand and I also got a fun makeover from her. Read on to know more 🙂

What is the key to flawless makeup? Not really the products but what is key is how you blend those products and to do that, it is essential to invest in good quality tools. For some, makeup brushes work and for some, makeup sponges. I fall in the latter category because I think when it comes to cream products especially foundation, sponges work best because you can control the amount of product you apply as well as the coverage. The Beauty Blender has been my absolute favorite for the last couple of years but I’m happy to have found a product that matches up to the BB. Plus, it is made in India and easily available.

Lakmé launched a bunch of new makeup as part of their Illuminate and Shine collection in collaboration with Sabyasachi. In this post, I wrote about the bronzer, highlighter, shimmer brick and liquid liners. In today’s post, I will share my views on the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palettes Royal Persia and French Rosé. Lakmé launched two palettes earlier in the year and I was not too impressed with the pigmentation or staying power. With Royal Persia and French Rosé, I was hoping that those issues will be addressed. Are these better? Read on to find out…
