Is Coastal Scents Pro Blending brush- Dupe for MAC 217?

I've been obsessed with creating eye makeup looks and my Project 101 eye makeup looks is a testimony to that madness. 
The first and biggest hurdle a Makeup enthusiast faces while starting out with eye makeup is non-availability of quality blending brushes on a budget.

 The choice is pretty limited either you pick up one of the Vega pro brushes ,or try out one of the few random brushes from Faces / QVS / Babila or suck up  and buy a MAC brush.Blogosphere is filled with the story of MAC 217 as HG blending brush, and I know most of us wonder is there no other alternative?
After all 1500 bucks is not chump change and as much I love eye makeup I'm not ready to fork out that kind of money on a single eyeshadow blending brush just yet- later who knows I might just change my mind, but right now I'd make do or do without!

So in the spirit of Make do I ordered a bunch of eye shadow brushes from Coastal scents- few of which have become my all time favorites.


 One of the things on my wishlist was a domed eyeshadow blending brush and touted as a dupe of MAC 217 was Coastalscents Pro Blending brush. So is it  really a dupe?

Celebrate flawless skin with the new Algae Collagen Masque
Rejuvenate your hair with the Time Restore Protein Treatment
Mumbai, May 2012: Have you looked in the mirror with a worry that pre-mature ageing and fine lines are beginning to appear on your skin?  Are you afraid that your hair is beginning to look duller and has lost its sheen? Indulge in Lakmé Salon’s new Repair Replenish and Revitalise Service which includes Algae Collagen Masque for your skin and the Time Restore protein treatment for your hair. Experience these rejuvenating hair and skin services as part of a whole list of special offerings that are Just Out @ Lakmé Salon.
The Algae Collagen Masque reduces any signs of pre-ageing, maturing and dehydration of the skin. It wipes out these signs with ingredients like Sea algae, Chondrus Crispus, Glycerin and Lavender Oil.  It nourishes, revitalizes and hydrates the skin in 30 minutes.
The service starts off with gentle cleansing and toning of your skin, thus ridding it of all the impurities like dust, grease and pollution. A gentle facial massage follows putting you completely at ease as the algae masque is then applied to your skin. The face is then massaged with an ultrasonic facial massager for about 15 minutes which allows the goodness of the masque to penetrate into your skin entrench it with its rich properties. The masque is then allowed to rest on your skin as you blissfully relax knowing that the service will leave your skin feeling relaxed and invigorated, giving you a radiant and youthful glow.
Be Fussy Frizzy no more with the Time Restore Protein Treatment for your hair! As hair matures, vital keratin production in your hair subsides and they tend to become limp, brittle and coarse. This treatment activates the production of keratin which aids the hair to an optimum youthful composition. Replenish the lost protein in the hair with the New Amino Cell Rebuild Technology that stimulates hair roots and increases the keratin levels that bring back the life and sheen in your hair.

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick Speak Louder

SPEAK LOUDER!

Well with hot pink lips who could resist to be Bold & Speak Louder, MAC commands you to stand up and speak louder with this super bold pinky red lippie. 
A while back during one of my flights I couldn't take off my eyes from the bright pinky Fuchsia lipstick sported by a Flight attendant. I was so intrigued by the shade that I asked her about the shade & she said  "Speak Louder" Ever since I was fixated on this shade and when I swatched it I knew I had to have this in my  Vanity :D
MAC describes Speak Louder as “clean poppy blue pink.”. Now I dunno about you guys but I have only seen red poppies and yellow poppies, none come close to this lippie.
 Its a muted version of Hot pink, its bright but not neon and its full coverage with a sheen.
 Doesn't it look tempting?


Cheryl Cole Cannes 2012 inspired Smokey Eye makeup look

Cheryl Cole pulled out all stops during her Cannes 2012 appearance in a Stephane Rolland couture gown, with a sensational feathery red train which seemed to melt right into the red carpet. The effect- Plain gorgeous! Not only did Cheryl get her gown spot on for the event, her makeup for Cannes was one of the best done Red carpet looks. With super sultry smokey eyes, tons of falsies and glossy nude lips, Cheryl took chic to another level.

I've tried to recreate this  smokey sultry Red Carpet ready look, using some budget makeup items, hope you like the look :)

My custom cretaed Eyeshadow & lipstick palette- DIY project!

Girls,If you H.A.T.E forking out your hard earned moolah buying empty makeup palettes raise you Hand!

As much I love Inglot & MAC, my wallet revolts at the thought of spending 800-4000 bucks on empty makeup palettes!! I know they look chic and stuff but seriously that kind of money for empty palettes feels like daylight robbery.
I had been collecting my share of refill pans in all assorted shapes and sizes and had my mind on ordering a few Z palettes, but they cost a pretty penny too. So I decided to get a bit crafty,I picked this very cute metallic pencil box with Harajuku doll lookalikes embossed on the cover and create my customized makeup palette.

 Things you'd need for this DIY makeup Palette

1.Cute & sturdy metallic pencil box- cuter the better- let your inner wild child out & you can have Pokemon or Batman or Barbie themed palettes as well !!
2.Kwick fix glue(if you are looking at making a permanent palette) else cellophane tape will do,alternately you can use double sided tape available at most stationary stores.
3.Refill eyeshadow and lipstick pans or de-potted pans.
4.A pair of scissors, a pen and a pair of tweezers.

Here I'm, using a double decker pencil box.I waned two separate sections one each for my round Inglot lippies, other for the eyeshadow and blushes.

Blue and Gold Nails of the day and 5 Things I learned today about Nail art

Hey Girlies! Hope you are having a rocking weekend!! Delhi heat is scorching right now and I'm down with a mild heat stroke.So grounded and home bound I was up to some pretty random nail art today. After 5 different botched Nail art attempts, I got seriously bored and decided to do this Blue & Gold Nail of the day using sponging technique.

I didn't have a gold polish so I decided to play with some gold pigment and mixed it with clear polish and voila-There you have it bright gold polish!!


5 Things I learned today about Nail art

1.They don't call it Art for nothing, Nail Art is  seriously tricky business.

2.Don't trust your favorite Nail Art Guru -when they tell you "this mani is easy peasy & I did it in a jiffy" it takes some serious time to get a mani right.Leave it to the pros ;)

3.Dark blue polish will stain your nails and your skin, any random dark polish will also stain. No they don't write that on the nail polish bottle!! They should don't you think?

4.Transparent polish+Loose eyeshadow pigment=Funky polish,though say goodbye to your clear polish's brush,it will never be transparent again.

5.Nail art is a royal pain the behind, but I sure am hooked & will be trying out some more :D

XOXO Girls, stay in the shade & drink plenty of H2O

On the lookout for Dreamy Creamy Luxurious rich lip color? Then show some love to Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color Lipstick.
Bobbi Brown lipsticks were an object of my desire forever, so after years & years of waiting I finally snagged Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color Lipstick Plum Rose during my recent Strawberrynet haul.
Plum Rose is a plum pink with a creamy finish and soft shine.In the tube it looks more like dirty mauvey pink and I half expected the shade to look flat and lifeless on my lips, but Oh My! was I in for a surprise. 
Plum rose is a deliciously pigmented, feather light lipstick and gives full coverage in a single swipe.Love the soft focus sheen on it and the lipstick is very hydrating.This shade is very versatile and would be universally flattering on all Indian skin tones.

Your pre-monsoon straightening ritual got even better with this new service that not only gives you super straight hair that is feathery soft, but also high in shine!

Now you can keep your monsoon woes and bad hair days at bay with the MATRIX Power.Shine Service that will make hair sleek and manageable. Imagine . . . Good hair day, EVERYDAY !
It is an exquisite combination of the popular Opti.straight and Opti.care products by MATRIX for superior straightening results. 

Say hello to Orange lips with Inglot 103 lipstick! Its really HOT!!

If you need a piping Hot Orange lipstick to zing up your life then its time for Inglot 103 Lipstick!

I've been lemming for some bright bold orange lippie,but every time I try MAC So chaud , one look my lips in the mirror I freeze like I've looked at Medusa (random trivia One look by Medusa was supposed to turn any mortal man to stone, apparently her glare didn't work on women) 
.Anyway  the randomness aside,today I went to Inglot and the Boldest, Brightest & Craziest Orange lipstick caught my eye- Number 103. 
This is a very saucy shade in the tube and enough to scare away anyone, but I was in a specially brave mood today so I decided to try out 103, 107 & 206 on lips. Shade 103 just cried out my name and I had to get this baby right then.


(The shade is more orange than you see in the pics here the flash is making the red more prominent)
 The shade is a bright neon orange in the tube, without shimmer or glitter.The shade is nicely pigmented and has a creamy texture with beautiful sheen to it. There is a very faint fragrance which is quite pleasant and the lipstick is very hydrating, even without a lip balm underneath my lips feel amazingly soft after wearing this.
The lipstick is made with Vitamin E and apricot kernel oil moisturizing formula & are Paraben free. Inglot doesn't test on animals and this one is cruelty free.
The packaging of Inglot lipsticks is really classy, thick heavy metallic black square tube contains 4.5 grams of lippie.The lipstick is priced at INR 550/- and the full 4.5 gram quantity make it a great value (unlike brands which only give 3 grams of lippie in a tube *cough MAC cough*).

The pricing is great too when you compare drugstore brands like Revlon/ L'oreal/ Bourjois etc have hiked there lipstick prices to up to 600- 700 bucks range this seems like a great value. When Inglot lipsticks were first launched in India almost 3 years back these cost Rs 800/- and with a price correction these are the best value lipstick in market today.

Neon Fuchsia Nails of the day & my attempt at Nail art :)

Hey Guys, today I'm wearing this super bright neon fuchsia shade from Flormar on my nails (number N001) and I took baby steps with nail art, I tried out a little accent with water decals.
The water decals were from www.KKcenterHK.com and are super easy to apply.
Honestly I always thought nail art meant high tech stuff, intricate deigns,stamping and a whole bunch of rocket science and I was so thrilled to see how easy these decals were to apply.
Just cut out a small decal sticker, soak it in water and press on the nail & voila there you have it a lovely design.Now I'm going to try out rest of the decals and keep you guys posted on how those turned out :)

With the Indian summer back in full swing, skin concerns multiply manifold- ranging from tanning, pigmentation, dark spots and the formidable premature aging.

Customized to your specific sun care needs, the Ultrasheer range is available in variants of SPF 30 and SPF 50 and one can choose from a sunblock cream, body mist or the UV Moisture lotion- all powered by the breakthrough patented Helioplex technology that contains stabilized Avobenzone, which enables the product to provide superior and stable broad spectrum protection against UVA/UVB.

What’s more, the products even feel great on the skin. They contain the renowned Dry Touch technology, which utilizes micronized silica powder to absorb excess sunscreen oils, leaving your skin feeling incredibly soft and non-greasy or shiny. The lightweight feel makes it ideal to be worn under make-up. They are non-comedogenic, waterproof and sweat-proof, so it won’t clog pores.
