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 🙂
Last week I attended a very interesting event in Mumbai courtesy Pond’s. It is quite impossible to find someone who has not used a Pond’s product. Do you know who is behind the creation of all these wonderful products? It is The Pond’s Institute, formed to bring together years of skincare science and first-to-market innovative product formulas. Through a global network of over 700 scientists, The Pond’s Institute analyses the evolving needs of different skin types around the world, uncovers insights on how these skin factors influence people’s perceptions and designs molecules clinically proven to deliver superior skin results. The Pond’s Institute was recreated in Mumbai for a day and the event was attended by Dr. Shuliang Zhang, Sr. Principal Scientist, and Global Clinical Leader for Skin Care, Unilever, Prabha Narasimhan, Vice President Skincare – India, Unilever, expert dermatologist Dr. Aparna Santhanam and brand ambassadors Ileana D’Cruz and Amy Jackson.
I’ve been a Paris Café fan ever since Sneha Singhi opened the first outlet opposite Ice Skating Rink in Kolkata. The charming decor, the Parisian vibe and of course the wonderful food and beautiful desserts keep bringing me back to the place again and again. I recently visited the latest Paris Café outlet in Alipore for dinner with twenty of my foodie friends from Kolkata Food Fanatics and it was a wonderful experience.
The September 2015 My Envy Box arrived some time back and I thought I’ll quickly share with you what I got. I’ve been really happy with the boxes sent out lately so my expectation from the September box was quite high. Am I happy or disappointed? Read on to know 🙂
Do you know that Maybelline New York is out with a new range of Colorshow Creamy Matte Lipsticks priced at Rs 325? I was checking out the range at a New U store the other day and I was particularly drawn towards the shade, Mysterious Mocha. People who know me will be surprised because I almost never get attracted to neutral/n*de lipsticks. Not that I’m not fond of light colors but finding a good n*de is such a pain. I’m a NC 43.5 in MAC and most n*des wash me out and make me look sick. When I looked at Maybelline’s Mysterious Mocha, it was love at first sight and I somehow knew she would not let me down. And she hasn’t!
