Currently Loving: Beauty Basics

4:39 PM

This month has been very thanda in terms of shopping (lets not talk about baking Bangalore). I havent spotted any good deals, discounts and sales, online or offline , also too much shopping has been done in febraury and march so I dont really find the need to shop for anything as of now. This means I dont have any shopping stories to share with you so I decided to a post on my current beauty favourites.

Kajal , Lip balm and face cream are an essential part for me and these days I have added an eye gel from aroma magic too to help with my dark circles.

Ponds BB Cream: My skin is very well behaved these days, no pimples and dark spots (touchwood) and so I am not using foundation . I just apply ponds BB cream with my foundation sponge for light coverage especially for my dark circles, pat with pressed powder and done. I have tried Garnier BB cream, fair and lovely BB cream and Lakme CC cream but i find ponds one is the best in terms of coverage and longevity. This is a bit hard to blend and wee bit drying but overall a good budget buy.

Plum Angel Eyes Kohl Kajal: Kajals are a staple for me, I can skip the liner, blush and mascara but never the kajal. After trying Lakme eyeconic and Maybelline collosal i got bored and decided to give this pencil one from plum try. Plum is a natural herbal beauty brand making products free of SlS, parabeans and other chemicals. This Kajal is a nice black one which gives a cooling sensation to eyes when applied. The stay time is a decent 4 hours and it is also pricey compared to eyeconic. Though not smudge proof I dont get panda eyes with this but for events and parties i would definitely prefer going back to eyeconic or collosal. This one is nice herbal kajal for sensitive eyes and if you dont like loading your waterline with chemicals give this a try

Nivea Fruity Shine pomegranate: I love Nivea fruity shine lip balms and after trying peach and cherry Iam now using variant named Pomegranate. this one isnt not as mositurizing as peach or cherry but it is more tinted and gives a deep red tint to lips.In summer when lips arent too chapped this one is working nicely for me especially because i dont want to smear my lips with heavy lip colours.

Aroma Magic Under Eye Gel: Recommended by my sister this gel is now an essential part of my beauty routine. Dark circles is my main skin issue and this has helped lighten them to a great extent. I apply it in the night after a long day spent with my laptop. It soothes my eyes and provides an instant calming effect. On regular use it has helped me lighten my dark circles by moisturizing my under eye area . I recommend this eye gel to all beauties who are looking for a solution to nourish under eye area without the product getting into your eyes. This is very affordable too.
Availability: online(got mine from flipkart)
