VLCC’s Enchanting Eyes Kajal will create a dark, intense line for dramatic eyes. It is smudge-proof and waterproof, which makes it last long, really long. VLCC Enchanting Eyes Kajal is dermatologically-tested and enriched with botanical extracts and comes in an easy-to-use retractable stick format.
The much awaited limited edition MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks launched in India last week (and most probably got sold out that day itself!). I managed to get my hands on two shades – Dance With Me, a deep cranberry red and Oh Lady, a dark purple wine. Read on to know what I think of them.
For those who prefer timeless glamour to all-out flash, matte reigns supreme. M∙A∙C introduces a twist on this classic texture with robustly saturated shades of Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour. Whichever shade you choose, all promise one thing: a splash of colour in a liquid-suede finish that is impossible to forget.

Maybelline New York is on a roll. They launched the Fit Me range and the Hyper Matte Liquid Liner last month. And now, we have two more new launches from them – Color Sensational Lip Gradation matte lip pencils in eight shades and Superstay Gel Nail Color in 24 shades. I was checking out the Lip Gradation pencils at Shoppers Stop, Salt Lake City Centre and picked up two shades – Mauve1 and Fuchsia1. Dunno what is with Maybelline giving such boring names to their lip colors though. These pretty things deserve much better!
So what are these Lip Gradation pencils?
Available in 8 bright, matte shades, this double-sided lip product will inspire you to experiment with your looks and bring out your unique style and personality. The color stick at one end will give a gorgeous pop of color while the cushion blender tool at the other end will give a sexy, graded look. Here’s why you will love it:

Luxury in a golden tube! That is YSL Rouge Pur Couture Pure Colour Satiny Radiance Fuchsia, a color created years back by the legendary Monsieur Saint Laurent. Enveloped in a luxurious gold case, this purple fuchsia can brighten up any skin tone.
I bought the lipstick last year when Strawberrynet was having a 10% off on all makeup offer so I basically got this at 20% off . It is now priced at Rs 2,398 on strawberrynet. This is one lipstick that feels as expensive as it looks. It is intensely pigmented, has a creamy texture, gives a slightly glossy finish, does not feather or bleed, smells really nice, is hydrating and stays for around 4-5 hours. The only con is that it transfers quite a bit but I can live with that.
If you like bright pinks and fuchsias on your lips, this is one shade you must definitely check out. Expensive yes but sometimes it does not hurt to indulge right? :). If you want a dupe, check MAC Girl About Town. Different finish but the color is quite similar.
To keep the skin soft, supple and hydrated this winter, VLCC is out with two body lotions – Almond Nourishing Body Lotion and Cocoa Butter Hydrating Body Lotion. I’ve been trying out the Cocoa Butter variant for some time and in this post, sharing my take on the product.
Cocoa butter is one of the best natural skin conditioners. It contains fatty acids that help in hydrating the skin deeply making it look and feel soft and supple. Enriched with antioxidants this nourishing emollient fights environmental stressors and free radicals, keeping them from damaging the skin cells that trigger premature aging. Combining the benefits of Cocoa butter with conditioning qualities of olive oil and aloe gel VLCC has whipped up this beautiful hydrating body lotion that moisturizes the skin and keeps it looking young, flawless and radiant.
- With SPF 15
- Deep hydration
