♥ Kiss Beauty Blusher/Bronzer-Baked Powder

Kiss Beauty has again proved to be a brand worth investing. I already have a Kiss Beauty blusher palette and I love it. My first bronzer is also from the same brand. It is totally inexpensive and I sooo love it <3

The Spy Who Loved Me-OPI Skyfall Collection

The SKYFALL has hit theatres last month and is a real treat for all Bond lovers. And so it is to beauty lovers too! OPI has released the SKYFALL collection with royal, classy and bold shades featuring Bond girl Sévérine.

♥ Banjara's Carrot gel

When Banjara's brand was launched, it was really popular among people because of it's wide range of products at low prices. I found this Banjara's product that my friend was using and decided to try myself.

The Banjara's Carrot gel is for anti-ageing. Carrots have rich anti-ageing properties with ingredients like retinol and carotene. So it is advised to include carrots, greens and yellow and orange fruits/vegetables in our daily diet.

♥ Garnier Men Oil Clear Face Wash

Today's review is men's stuff. It's Garnier Men Oil Clear Face wash. Skin care for men is catching up pace with that of women and Garnier contributes significantly to it. To know more about the launch and company claims, visit my post here.

So, as all of you would have started thinking by now whether "I" tried it, the answer is no. It was tried and tested by my BF and he sent these pics. Men don't know how much we get involved in posting reviews. Yes, I don't like the pictures:( Anyways, now off to the review.

What Garnier says: All day oil-free feel. Formulated with oil absorbing mineral clay and Cyro-menthol.Cleanses without drying the skin.

Price: 74 INR for 50 gm and 140 INR for 100 gm.

Packaging: It comes in a black tube with graphic labels. I love the combination of black and green. The cap is flip open type and just squeeze the tube to get the cream and the tube is handy.

About the face wash: It has refreshing smell (because of menthol I think) and a decent amount is enough to give you a clean face. It cleanses excess oil on the face and leaves it fresh. Since south India is not so dry during winters, there was no feeling of dryness. If you are in Delhi or so, use a moisturizer after cleansing. But this is more suited to use in summers. The claim of all day oil free face is not fully covered. The freshness doesn't stay all day. It depends on the type of work you do, the climate and your skin type.

Overall, I recommend this product for men as it is not expensive and delivers freshness instantly. Catch a small tube, slip it in your sports bag or office bag and stay fresh before a meeting or date and for all important occasions! And all lovely ladies can gift it to your beloved men!

♥ Deborah Milano 24 ORE eyeliner

Heya sweeties! Here's the review of my first felt tip eye liner and first Deborah Milano product- Deborah Milano 24 ORE eyeliner pen in shade 01 Intense Black.

What the company says:

Felt tip-easy application
Ophthalmologically tested

Packaging: The Deborah Milano eyeliner pen is like a regular pen/sketch pen with felt tip that is sharp and soft. It doesn't deform with usage and remains in shape for precise lining. It is weightless and can easily be slipped in your bag for touch ups and while traveling.

Price: 400 INR

The shade is 01 Intense Black and it is not much pigmented. So one swipe is not enough. You need 2-3 swipes to get normal black color and more if you want to build color. 

Staying power: It stays for 4-5 hours and starts to fade after that. But you can always have it handy for touching up. It is not water proof. It doesn't smudge but faded after rubbing hard. It stains eyelids when you sweat or if your eyelids are oily.

I don't get it always perfect:( Need practice. 

         One and two swipes                                                                     After rubbing with fingers

+Easy to apply
+Easily available
+Fine tip
+Doesn't smudge

-No ingredients list
-No other shades
-Not much pigmented
-Not waterproof
-Not suitable if your eyelids are oily and on hot/sweaty days.

To sum up, this is an average product. I recommend this for touch ups and experimenting.
