Kim Kardashian Inspired Smokey Grey eye makeup look

Kim Kardashian the veritable Queen of the Smokey eye makeup, usually sports a dark black smokey look, but one of my favorite Kim Kardashian smokey eye look,features her with grey smokey eyes.

I have had this pic on my scrap book of 'looks-to-do' for a very long time, and as my Project 101 Eye makeup looks has been slackening off,today I decided to finally give it this look a whirl.
I used MAC Heirloom Kohl pencil on 3/4th of my lid to create a grey smokey base,and it blended so well that I didn't need to top it off with powder shadow. This look was done in a jiffy and I thought it turned out quite well.
Kim sports a frosty pinkey nude lippie in this picure, but I decided to go with milky nude lips instead & I topped off this look with MAC Cremesheen lipglass-Pricvate screening (from the Reel Sexy collection)

Products Used In the  Look
  • NYX HD Eyeshadow base
  • MAC Heirloom Kohl pencil (Limited edition from MAC Heavenly creatures collection)
  • Sleek I Divine Oh So Special Palette-4 shades used- Boxed,Wrapped up,Noir and Bow matte vanilla shade used as highlighter
  • Faces Canada White eye liner pencil
  • Maybelline Eye studio black gel eyeliner
  • Bourjois Ultra curl mascara

Guest Post Revlon Lip Butter Pink Truffle review and lip swatches

These lip butters have enticed me since I saw they got launched and had the blogosphere in a tizzy going gaga over them. I had a cousin get me one (peach parfait) from the US when she was coming back. I loved it soo much that I hounded my mom to get me one from her trip to Bangkok.

This shade is Pink truffle. It was on my lust list the as soon as I saw swatches of lip butters everywhere. Its a beautiful pinky-brown/dusty-rose shade, with no shimmer and a nice glossy finish. The texture is very smooth and buttery. It glides on my lips and I find it hard to stop applying once I start. Never goes cakey or settle in lip lines.
Packaging: is similar to revlon's quilted lippies

Colorbar I Glide eyeliner pencil Flirty Turq

Colorbar I Glide eyeliner pencil Flirty Turq is a jewel toned Teal-turquoise eyeliner. Colorbar has a winner at its hand with these super smooth & creamy eyeliner pencil which are totally smudge proof, waterproof and very long lasting & with a name like Flirty Turq what's not to love? ;)
By the way off topic Turkish men are right up there with the Italians in their flirtatiousness.I visited Istanbul a few years back and oh my those Young Turqs surely do flirt! *winks* winks*

Coming back to These come in a chic silver box packaging and have a shade swatch at the base of both the liner pencil and outer packaging. Priced at INR 399/-for an eyeliner pencil they tread the middle ground between budget and splurge for me.


I have many I define and I glide eyeliners from Colorbar and they are my absolute favorites for past few months.I love that the shades are so unique and bold,just one swipe of these and  my whole makeup looks so well pulled together that I'm head over heels in love with these babies.

The i define pencil are and safe on the waterline,their smooth texture means one swipe gets full on color on your upper and lower lashline and you don't need to keep going back and forth with the eyeliner to get a smooth line.Only con is that because they are so creamy they tend to break off quite easily at the time of sharpening.

I've used Flirty Turq in this look called Teal Temptation I had created for a contest.I've used the eyeliner all over my lid as a base for my eyeshadow and also on the lower lashline.

Overall thoughts-This is a gorgeous eyeshadow with very intense pigmentation and almost jewel toned effect it creates very stunning effects.You can use it safely on the waterline as well without any irritation and it has an excellent wear time of over 7-8 hours.A very unique shade and a must have in my opinion.

MAC Lady Danger lipstick, swatches and Dupe

MAC Lady Danger is a super bright bold warm toned Red with very strong orange undertones.Its matte and extremely pigmented.The shade just says 'Look At Me- I'm Hot Hot Hot'

This is a statement lipstick,all you need a clean well primed skin and a swipe of your eyeliner and this completes the look. This shade will suit warm,olive tones and duskier girls a lot.

This pic was clicked 2 hours after first applying Lady Danger lipstick,though it looks a tad muted in the pic below, this is a very bright eye catching shade, definitely Not safe for Work!

The closest dupe of MAC Lady Danger lipstick I've come across is Inglot 103 Lipstick.

Compared to Inglot 103 lipstick Lady Danger is matte and doesn't has any sheen, though the shades are pretty close,MAC Lady Danger is a tad muted more red than orange.

Inglot 103 is creamy,has a high sheen and looks more vivid,in terms of lasting power MAC Lady danger outscores over Inglot 103 Lipstick.

So which one are you snagging? MAC Lady Danger or Inglot 103?

A trip to Hauz Khaz Village-places to see, shop and eat

For Delhiites Hauz Khas Village is a tony South Delhi hot spot buzzing with budding fashion boutiques and Art galleries.You can easily spot Jimmy Choos and Marc Jacob bags and a small time Celeb or two on your trip to the Hauz Khas Village. With a quaint village feel and a cool bohemian vibe,this is the place to see and be seen in Delhi.

The history of Hauz khas predates all the avant garde designers and the fancy eateries.The Hauz Khas (meaning Royal water tank) was excavated by Alaudin Khilji (Part of Delhi sultanate,13th century) to supply water to the fourth city of Delhi called- 'Siri' a.k.a The Siri Fort. 

[Btw did you know the city of Delhi as we know it today was a result of 11 cities of Delhi clubbed together?]

The curious story of  how 'Siri' fort got its name is very macabre.(Those of a weak heart, skip & scroll down to the pictures please).

Alaudin Khiji during his reign had to fend of many Mongol attacks.The first time Mongols attacked Delhi, Alaudin Khiji was away on Chittor campaign chasing the ethereal beauty Rani Padmini. 
Second time the Mongols attacked Delhi Mr. Khilji had to stay barricaded in Siri fort for 2 whole months.The Mongols camped in an area now called as Mangolpuri in North West Delhi. 
Eventually Mongols got bored/ home sick & more importantly had to go home and choose the next-Head of the Mongolian Khanate and they headed back home.

After getting whooped twice by Mongols,Alaudin Khilji realized that to repel the continued Mongol invasions he would need to build a strong garrison & reinforce his fort .To provide water for the needs of the new city of Siri, the work of Hauz Khaz was started.

The Mongols were persistent chaps & they again invaded Punjab and Amroha and plundered & burnt Punjab and laid waste to everything in their route.This time Alaudin Khilji was more than ready for the Mongols,he sent a strong army led by two of his toughest generals Ghazi Malik & Malik Kafur to engage with the Mongols.
Mongol army was on their way back home with the loot and plunder from Punjab when they were intercepted by Alaudin's Generals who smashed the Mongolian army and brought along the Mongol Generals and soldiers to Siri Fort.
Alauddin Khilji had the generals trampled to death by elephants (as the blood of Royal prisoners could not be spilled,they were trampled!!) The Mongolian soldiers who were prisoners of war were beheaded & their heads buried under the foundation stones of the fort. Hence the name Siri Fort (Sir - in Hindi means head & hence the name Siri)-Macabre I told you so !!

Fast forward to the present-
How to get there- Your best bet is Delhi Metro-get off at Hauz Khas Metro station and take an auto rickshaw to the Huaz Khas Village Market. Else there is ample parking available and you can drive down just as easily.
