Apart from a being a beauty and makeup maniac, I am also a huge fashion junkie. One of my fav pastimes is to browse through beauty and fashion magazines/websites and I can do this for hours on end!!
On my blog, I want to start a new section where I want to feature you. I want to know what you love…What is your fav outfit? Your fav accessory? Your fav piece of jewelry? Love that shoe? Share with me and other readers as well. Let us all drool together :))))
If you are interested, please send me an email with your pics and some info about yourself and the product to firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to put it up. Everyone is welcome.Indians, Non-Indians, young, old…no discrimination at all!
Looking forward to your enthusiastic participation…Don’t disappoint me please pretties :)..Give a new blogger some encouragement :P..
If you are a blogger, Ill provide the link to your blog. If not, well Ill give you the opportunity to show off 😛
To start off, here’s me sharing my current fav earring..its a silver filigree with pearl drops that I picked up from Tashkent. Like?
P.S – Lets share some of our mutual love by following each other? What say?
Well now that I’ve told you my story lets get down to the real reason why I’m writing this post. And the reason is to let you know that I have finally found what I’ve been looking for. A super hot pink nail polish and guess what? Neither is it from any high-end brand nor ridiculously expensive. Well ladies, let me introduce you to my latest love..Avon’s Color Me Pretty Nail Enamel in Flirty!
Let me share why I’m lovin this beauty..
1. Color – A HOT HOT Pink which will look good on anyone’s hands despite their skin color. One coat is bright. Two coats is whoaaa…This will also be a very good base for those who are into nail art. If you love bright pinks on your nails as much as I do, go for this.
2. Price – Flirty is really affordable. Think I bought it for about 60 bucks!
3. Texture – Won’t say its the creamiest polish around but I quite like how smooth it is to apply. No ridges on the nails.
4. Staying Power – Beats most of the pricey brands in this department. I’ve been wearing this for 4 days now and no chipping!
What I did not like was the really tiny bottle. The packaging is pretty cute but the quantity is not. Would have loved to have more of you Flirty!
Here are a few pics of me wearing her……
P.S – I haven’t had a manicure in a while so please excuse the state of my nails 😀
|At TBS Store|
According to TBS, these are cold pressed dry oils made from Kukui nut oil, Sweet almond oil and Community Fair Trade marula nut oil that can be used on the face, body and hair to moisturize, smooth and illuminate. They are available in 11 different fragrances to complement the body butters (although I didn’t really see 11 of them in the store. Think I saw about 6) so there is definitely one for everyone! I was a bit apprehensive of trying on an oil on my face and body during this weather but the results have left me pleasantly surprised. Let’s see why.
Packaging – Its very basic and simple yet quite cute. The oil is dispensed through a very small nozzle which allows you to control how much you want and believe me you do not need a lot of this.
|The cute bottle|
Fragrance – I’ve always loved how the Moringa Body Butter smelled and the oil did not disappoint me. It’s quite subtle and not overpowering at all. The Body Butter is actually stronger than this. What I don’t like however is the staying power of the fragrance when I use it on my body. It lasts for about 2-3 hours after which it wears off. On my hair, it lasts for about 3-4 hours.
On my hair – The first time I tried this on my hair, I made the mistake of applying too much and it made my hair greasy. Next time, I was more careful and applied only a teeny tiny bit. I have tried this in all sort of ways. I have used it on dry hair and it made my hair really smooth and glossy. I’ve scrunched up my damp hair and applied it like a serum and it made my hair super soft.You just have to make sure that you do not apply a lot. I have dry hair so this has worked really well for me.
On my body – The only gripe I have is that the smell does not last for long. Other than that, I love the effect on my skin. Its really lightweight and absorbs quickly. It’s also a lot quicker to use the beautifying oil rather than lotion if you’re in a rush since oil just sort of distributes itself much more smoothly. And the best part is the very subtle glow that my skin gives off after applying the oil.
|Its really light|
|And absorbs super fast|
All in all, a great product from the TBS stable and I greatly recommend these oils specially to those with normal to dry skin.You will love the results!
What I don’t like is the quantity and the price. I was expecting a much bigger bottle than the100 ml specially at Rs 895. But the good thing is that you need such a small amount that the bottle will last for quite sometime.
So TBS Beautifying Oils or TBS Body Butters? Hmmmm tough choice really because both are so good. But since I have to make one, I’ll go for the oils in summer and the body butters during the cooler months. Don’t think the oils will be that effective during the winters.
Will I repurchase? Absolutely. I’m patiently waiting for the store to bring Chocomania and Cocoa Butter 🙂
To finish off the review, my rating for TBS Beautifying oil in Moringa on a scale of 1-5 ? A 4.5! (Taking away .5 coz of the price and quantity)
Hope you liked the review. Do comment and let me know if you have given these oils a try. Waiting to hear from you:)
Till next time
