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 🙂
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will know that MAC Cosmetics is finally available at Nykaa. The concerns I had after hearing the news was whether 1) the prices would be the same as in the stores and 2) if they would have the same collection and not a capsule one. I am happy to say yes to both and in fact, online they are actually launching products that have not hit the stores yet. I am talking about the twelve new MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick shades that are part of the Spring 2017 collection. These are as of now only available at Nykaa and I picked up two of them – Topped With Brandy and Chocotease. The liquid lipsticks are priced at Rs 1850 each.
For anyone with dry skin, The Body Shop Vitamin E range of products is probably one of the best out there and I’ve been a big fan of the Vitamin E Moisture Cream. What is great is that the products now have a new and improved formula with the moisture power of 100% natural origin hyaluronic acid, in addition to the antioxidising power of wheatgerm oil to give a minimum of 48 hr hydration. The recent addition to this range is The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture-Protect Emulsion and that is what I will review in this post.

The iconic designer Sabyasachi and the iconic beauty brand Lakmé has come together once again to create Illuminate 2.0, a range designed to create looks that celebrate the glamour of shimmer. This range is all about luminous make up and includes the Illuminating Foundation, 4 new metallic shades of the Shine Line, the Sun-Kissed Bronzer, Moon-Lit Highlighter and Illuminating Shimmer Bricks. I was sent some of the products from this range to try out and in this post, will finally share my thoughts on the new Lakmé Absolute Illuminate Range.
I, for one, have been a Lakme CC Cream loyalist from the last year or so, and found it to be more effective than the contemporaries flooding the market. I would normally use it with a tiny blob of moisturizer (read MAC Strobe Cream), and it would instantly perk my face up, give it a natural sheen without going dry or patchy. That was then. Now, with the launch of the new variant of the Lakme CC cream, the Lakme 9To5 CC Color Transform Cream and the very lucrative color transforming element added to it, I couldn’t wait to try it and figure out what more it has to offer .
Lakme 9To5 CC Color Transform Cream Description

It’s time to toss the clutter aside and make way for first colour changing CC cream from the house of Lakme.. Lakme’s first advanced fairness cream that changes color as you blend, to give a make-up finish. Instantly brightens, conceals, evens skin tone and moisturizes, freshens and protects.
