Ipsy Bag May 2017

 

Ipsy Bag May 2017 was such a beautiful one. For starters, I loved the pouch it came in. It’s very summery plus it would be so fun to have this around with some mini essentials when I hit the beach. That’s said, I loved each and every product from this month’s bag.

 

Here are the contents of Ipsy Bag May 2017 –

Ipsy Bag May 2017
Luxie Dreamcatcher Precision Foundation Brush 660
It is an understatement if I simply put this as a genius brush. This is truly a multitasker, great to use it with liquid, cream, or powder foundations; concealers, highlighters and even bronzers. Though I particularly loved using this for my powder foundation!
Price – 23$

Buy – LuxieBeauty

What I Love –

  1. It is a pretty fluffy brush
  2. Its name – Dreamcatcher is pretty amusing (makes me want to think it will make all my makeup application dreams come true)
  3. It has a pretty periwinkle colored handle which looks amazing in the kit or even on the vanity (can’t wait to see this in the background of my pictures)
  4. Its fluffy brush head is 100% vegan and cruelty-free

 

CAILYN Cosmetics Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint + Velvet in #32 Practicable

This is definitely the first time I heard of this brand but trust me when I say I just hit a jackpot! This is such a fabulous shade, I would have hated if I missed this. Plus, I did a swatch test on my hand yesterday and it stayed put all day long. It didn’t feel dry ever. In fact, it had that felt velvety silk feel. And as I speak the color is still on, though it did fade a little.
I am kind of hoping this would be my current go-to lip color since it’s such a gorgeous shade with such an amazing formula. I will do a detailed review once I test it out properly on my lips.

Price – 19$

Buy – Cailyn Cosmetics

What I Love –

  1. It is Matte liquid lipstick that is actually hydrating
  2. It is really pigmented, so it gives you totally opaque, full-coverage color without layering up a lot
  3. It is a gorgeous cinnamon-nude shade
  4. It is smooch and snack-proof and stayed put all day long.

 

Adesse New York Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Surfer Girl

This shade looks similar to the one that was in last month’s Ipsy bag but make no mistake. Previous one was more of mint green while this month its mint blue.

Price – 18$

Buy – Adesse Ny

What I Love –

  1. It has super opaque formula (needs 2 coats min), is seriously shiny, and pretty much looks like a gel polish on application
  2. It has a flat brush which dispenses the perfect amount of polish on each nail
  3. Its formula is vegan, cruelty-free, and non-toxic

 

Starlooks Artist Edition – Luxe Longwear Star Stamp + Liner Pen

I don’t mind having another eye liner pen (remember I got one in April bag too?) but what struck me most was the stamp. I tried stamping it on my finger last night and I am in love. Its waterproof didn’t smudge and it’s super cute. I can’t wait to use this already.
Price – 19$

Buy – Starlooks

What I Love –

  1. It is double-ended
  2. It has the super cute star stamp
  3. Its stamp is pretty handy giving freedom from freehand drawing
  4. It is pretty handy to carry around (not that one would any touch ups)
  5. It is the only thing I would need if I have to transform myself from power brunch look to pink concert or gothic in seconds.
  6. It stays all day and doesn’t give raccoon eyes at the end

 

Urban Decay Afterglow in Sin

I am not really a highlighter kind of person but then I might just try my hand at this since its UD.

Sample

What I Love –

  1. It is a champagne-hued highlighter, suits almost all skin tones.
  2. Its formula is finely milled, which means it’s creamy plus its lightweight.
  3. It is much raved for its long-wearing luminizer formula

 

 

I can’t wait to put together a look using these products – especially the liner and the lip color. And now that we are about to enter the next month, I can’t wait to see what’s coming in June bag.

Fab Bag May 2017

Fab Bag May 2017 came with another pretty looking holiday themed bag. I love when I get bags like these; they make such pretty companions to stock and save stuff when I go tripping. That aside, I have more reasons to love this month’s bag.

Fab Bag – This time, Last year!

Here are the Fab Bag May 2017 contents –

Fab Bag May 2017

Fab Bag May 2017

 

 

Essence Maximum Volume Mascara

Full size

Price – 349 ₹

 

This is my favorite of all from this month’s fab bag. I love kajal and mascara any day and they are pretty much the only thing I reach out to every time go out (other than foundation and lipstick). So I couldn’t be happier when I saw this in the bag. I really can’t wait to try this out and see if it makes into my repurchase-favorites list.

 

 

Johara Pro Shine Nail Color in Golden Glimpse

Full size

Price – 250 ₹

 

This is the one I must say disappointed me quite a bit. But unfortunately, there is no way we can update the beauty profile (or is it?) about my preference of colors. I am more into classics, neutrals, and pastels at the moment. And not quite liking the metallics and the mattes. So, unfortunately, this is something I am giving it away to someone who would enjoy it.

 

 

Soap Square Foot Soak

Price – 400 ₹ for 140 gm

 

This is another product am so curious about. It’s a rare occasion to see products that are related to foot care, so this is such a welcome. Plus, after the vacation and my hectic schedule, my feet definitely need some TLC.

This is on my top to do list come this weekend.

 

 

Inatur Olive Cleansing Milk

Full size

Price – 225 ₹

 

Cleansing oils and cleansing milks are so much raved everywhere, I can’t wait to try this brand. Though I have heard of them, I haven’t tried any products from their brand yet. So this makes it perfect to give a shot. Plus, cleansing milk sounds super good since I am tired of trying micellar waters.

 

 

Elize Premium Sanitary Pads

Price – 100 ₹ for 2 pads

 

These came so nicely packed I had to immediately put one each in two of my handbags. They not only look nice and neat but don’t give any clue that it has a sanitary pad inside.

Plus did you know these pads have a cotton top sheet and bamboo charcoal strip to kill the odor?

Now that’s a big plus!

But that comes with a price. These are priced slightly higher than the regular ones. Seeing premium product samples is always the best feeling. No?

 

 

Veet Ready to Use Wax Strips for Sensitive Skin

Full Size

Price – 99 for a pack of 8 strips

 

I haven’t waxed in ages now (I shave) and it’s the perfect chance to give waxing a try again. If this works as good as it claims, I would be more than happy to stock up on these. On a side note, these are travel-friendly and I can’t wait to give this a try.

 

 

Fab Bag May 2017 has 4 full sized products and 2 samples with 1 being a premium product. All this in a travel themed pretty bag! What’s not to love?

 

 

Have you got your Fab Bag yet? What’s your favorite?

3 International Beauty Boxes I tried in April (and here’s what I think)

3 International Beauty Boxes I tried in April (and here’s what I think)

 

 

Being a Beauty Junkie, I am constantly looking to feed my curiosity for trying out the new products. Though I wouldn’t call myself very adventurous when it comes to makeup, I love to try new products that help ease my dolling up routine. For long I have been very much obsessed with some of the International beauty boxes and when I got to know about ShipOutUSA, I took the chance and tried 3 International Beauty Boxes in the month of April 2017.

And here’s what I think –

 

Ipsy Bag

Beauty Boxes

First up is my favorite. Ipsy bag is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box that samples some of the much raved brands from the Beauty Industry. It costs just 10$ and there is always 2-3 full sized products making this the most coveted among the beauty junkies.

Best thing – You can email support@ipsy.com if you like any particular product from the released spoilers. How cool is that?

Buy – Ipsy

 

Target Beauty Box

Beauty Boxes

This is my second favorite. Though this is not as impressive as Ipsy, it’s nevertheless a pretty good bargain for the 7$ price (price often varies). Plus, you get to know what all products are in that particular box of the month. So it’s a pretty decent deal – no excitement, no disappointment!

Best thing – It’s a box to box payment, doesn’t renew or charge the card by itself. Plus, has a full sized product or two in the box.

Not so good – It doesn’t personalize the box like other beauty boxes do.

Buy – Target

 

Sephora Play

 Beauty Boxes

Out of the three, this is my least favorite of all. It’s not like I hate it but definitely, nothing that excited me about this one. There is not even a single full sized product in the box. All the samples are quite tiny and I guess that’s what disappointed me more. It again costs just 10$ but when compared with Ipsy, this seems pretty disappointing nevertheless.

Best thing – Once a while, chosen brands are pretty impressive.

Not so good – for 10$ you get a bunch of samples to try. And unlike Ipsy, Sephora Play doesn’t give you an option of selecting the brands you want the products from.

 

That said if you are like me looking to subscribe to International Beauty Boxes to be delivered in India; except Ipsy they are definitely not worth the effort, time and money.

Fortunately, Ipsy didn’t get customs. Target which was just 7$ got customs of 230 ₹ and Sephora Play which was 10$ got customs of 230 ₹ too. All that, plus roughly 700 ₹ (each package) as Sofu charges. So, in my opinion, it’s such a waste to spend so much on samples when you can get full sized in the money spent.

And unfortunately, the deals are currently off and Sofu charges have increased too. So if you are planning to subscribe to any of these beauty boxes or even try others for that matter, do check with ShipoutUSA for their current charges. Though they are one of the least priced at the moment, sometimes it does make you wonder if you are over spending on a box of samples (just my thought!).

 

Despite the charges of Sofu increasing, I might still stick with Ipsy. And as for others, they are no more on my subscribing list!

 

 

Have you tried any of these International Beauty Boxes in India? What do you think of these?

P.s- These boxes aren’t shipped to India directly, you need to use a shipping service like ShipOutUSA

January Fab Bag 2017

January Fab Bag 2017

 

January Fab Bag 2017 came in much earlier than expected (as usual). It was rather a pleasant surprise since it was the first thing that came to my doorstep in the New Year. I really haven’t gotten over the NYE hangover yet and there I see the Fab Bag. I must say, Fab Bag never ceases to impress me and definitely thankful to the team who worked hard while we were still lost in hangovers! Anyways, here are the contents of this month’s bag.

 

Contents of January Fab Bag 2017

January Fab Bag 2017

bob wigs

Manna Kadar LipLocked Priming Wand – Joie

Full size – 1799 ₹

This is the reason I have been so eager about this month’s bag. It is a lip crayon from the brand called Manna Kadar. It is beautiful soft muted rose pink color which is perfect for daytime wear plus it is also a lovely color to wear during the winter(whatever is left, that is) and would be just the right color to help transition into Spring/Summer.

I have loved soft and muted tones in lip colors and this definitely has entered my favorite list already!

*More on this soon

 

O3+ Derma Fresh Mask

Full Size – 425 ₹

This is the first product I would be testing out from this brand. I did hear quite rave reviews of this brand but unfortunately never got a chance around to try. Besides, I have been on a skincare shopping spree and this has just come in time.

I can’t wait to see how this one fairs on my skin. Plus, it’s a face mask, what’s not to love?

 

MCaffeine Neem Caffeine Face Wash

Sample

Price – 449 ₹ for 150 ml

This is another new brand that’s been introduced in this month’s fab bag (besides Manna Kadar and o3+). While the color of the product and the packaging doesn’t seem to excite much, ingredients seem to be quite good.

I might give this a try depending on the mood, will keep you posted!

 

The Nature’s Co. Sandalwood – Turmeric Anti-Blemish Cream

Sample

Price – 895 ₹ for 50 ml

I wish this one was a full sized product. For one, this smells lovely and anything that has turmeric, I love to try. I am testing out this product at the moment and I can’t wait to see if I love it or not.

Hoping this one makes into *To Buy List*, can’t wait to see!

 

 

Wella EIMI Perfect Me Lightweight BB Lotion

Sample

Price – 900 ₹ for 100 ml

 

BB Lotion for hair! If you thought it’s for your face, trust me, you weren’t alone!

I totally got confused last time and assumed it to be a makeup product, thanks to Meg for pointing out. Now am much curious about this product than before and I can’t wait to see how this works. For sure, calling it BB lotion is like messing with our heads (to start with) but then I think it’s a clever way to get all the attention! I heard about BB Lotion for hair for the first time, so believe me when I say am super excited for this.

I just hope this works well enough on blonde colored wigs too. And if it does and works as great as it claims, I am so looking forward to getting a full size. Like I said, Wella is one of my favorite brands and their products have always been amazing.

Now this is definitely a favorite from this month’s bag!

With the products from 3 new brands, 2 skincare products, 1 makeup product and 1 Hair care product; January Fab Bag 2017 started off pretty good than imagined. I can’t wait to see, what’s store in coming months.

December Fab Bag 2016

 

December Fab Bag 2016 came in early. I was pretty excited this time around as I chose “Be a Bombshell Lip Stain in Intoxicated” as one of the products for this month’s Fab Bag.

Two things make me extremely happy – when I get to choose a product and when that product is a lip color.

So naturally, I couldn’t wait to see how this lip stain looked like. And oh boy, it is such a gorgeous shade! I am so glad I chose the shade Intoxicated – it is such a beautiful dark berry lip shade which is also a perfect winter color. I seriously can’t wait to show you how gorgeous this looks, plus it stays on for a very long time! So yay!

And if you are anything like me, then you’d know this already is my favorite from the December Fab Bag.

 

Here are the December Fab Bag 2016 contents –

December Fab Bag 2016

 

Be a Bombshell Lip Stain – Intoxicated

Full Size

Price – 750 ₹

This is definitely the highlight of this month’s bag. It’s been a while since I tried a lip stain so it was wonderful to see one from a brand like Be a Bombshell.

Plus it is a full sized product worth 750 ₹, so what’s not to love?

Besides, I can’t count how many times this would come handy since its no-mess fuss free lip color. And it is also a lovely wintery festive shade and a perfect addition to the makeup bag be it for travel or simply as a backup option in the handbag for touchups.

Here’s the swatch for you –

December Fab Bag 2016

 

Iba Halal Care Nourishing Foot Massage Cream

Full size

Price – 95 ₹

I did read good reviews about this brand from another blogger a while ago. So I definitely have high hopes for this one. Plus, it’s another full sized product in this month’s bag. Now that’s a double treat!

Besides, it smells like Jasmine, an absolute favorite! That said, with temperatures consistently dropping often, I definitely need extra care for my feet. I can’t wait to see how this turns out for me!

 

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil

60 ml

Price – 460 ₹

Body and face oils have been on my mind for a while now and seeing this one coming from a brand like Palmer’s, am more than happy.

Palmer’s is pretty popular for their skincare products; I had a chance to try their body butter and body lotion but never the oil. So am glad I got a chance to try this one!

This oil claims to improve the appearance of  dry & damaged skin, uneven Skin tone, aging skin, pigmentation, scars and stretch marks; now that’s something I am so looking forward to seeing how much it will stand up to its claims. Will keep you posted on this one!

 

Natural Bath & Body Thank God Its Friday Hair Mist

100 ml

Price – 525 ₹

This is one brand that took me by surprise altogether. Their body mist from November bag is definitely my everyday go-to mist at the moment. It refreshing and quite different from what I have been using till date, so I can’t wait to see how this hair mist turns out to be.

That said, hair mists are totally new to me. I did read and hear about the hair mists before but never tried one till date. So yes pretty excited about this one as well.

 

Overall, I pretty much loved everything from the December Fab Bag 2016. Now am impatient and eager to see what Fab Bag has in store for the coming year 2017.

I indeed enjoyed all the bags they sent out this year, I hope they excel the expectations like always and make us super happy the coming year too!

November Fab Bag 2016

November Fab Bag 2016 came in pretty early this time. I love to see the beauty bags pouring in the beginning of the month, it helps me to plan my beauty purchases or repurchases for that month quite well. There were times when I have delayed my purchasing something as I wanted to wait and try the sample I know is coming in that month. I think trying out samples have definitely made my life much simpler and hassle free and I can’t seem to get enough of these beauty bags already.
So without further ado, here’s what I got in November Fab Bag 2016

November Fab Bag 2016

Natural Bath & Body Beautiful Day Body Mist

Price 325 ₹ for 200 ml

Buy here – Nykaa

Beautiful Day Body Mist has blends of floral top notes with nuances of fresh zesty-ness. An infusion of Organic Vegetable glycerin makes this Body Mist gentle on the skin. And it’s quite refreshing and pleasant from the usual body mists I have.

One plus point with this one is, it makes a great body mist for everyday wear as it stays all day long. I think I found my new favorite already!

 

Just Herbs Aloe Vera Facial Massage Gel

Price – 445 ₹ for 100 gm

Buy here – Fab Bag

Aloe Vera is quite known for its moisturizing and the anti-aging properties. Unlike other anti-aging products which slightly have side effects (many tend to thin the skin) this works wonders with nothing of those.

You know am not a fan of Just Herbs in particular, but I have heard quite a lot about this product so I gave a try. And I am pleasantly surprised that I quite like it. It’s very soothing (though I prefer it not to show any cooling effects, it’s pretty cool as such here .. lol) and my skin feels super soft post the massage.

Though it’s too early to comment on how great this works as the anti-aging product, I am quite happy to use it as it doesn’t have the side effects like other products do.

That said, this is the first time I have liked Just Herbs product and I might repurchase this if I don’t find anything better in the meantime!

 

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Concentrate

Price – 325 ₹ for 200 ml

Buy – Fab Bag (out of stock atm)

This is one of the products I was super duper excited about. I think this is the first time a TBS product has come in the fab bag (or was there any before?). This was on my wishlist like forever now, but looking at the price and knowing that there was no smaller size available, I was little hesitant. Now after trying out the sample I think this is the moisturizer I have been looking for.

 

City Color Be Matte Lipstick Phoebe

Price – 550 ₹

Buy –

City Color is the new brand introduced by the Fab Bag this month. Again, one of the reasons I was so excited to get the bag.

I love a lipstick any day and seeing a lipstick from a new brand often makes me super happy. What’s good is that this shade is super pretty, affordable and perfect for everyday wear.

It stays on for decent enough of time and is available in many lovely shades. Besides, I simply love the name of the shade.

 

So what did you like about this month’s bag? As for me, I am pretty happy with all the products I got this time!

October Fab Bag 2016

Wish you all a Very Happy Diwali! 

October Fab Bag 2016, in short, is simply awesome. If you have been following me on IG stories you’d know how badly I am obsessed with lip colors and related products at the moment. So imagine my happiness when October Fab Bag 2016 has more than one lip product. And like double icing on the cupcake, all the products came in a beautiful golden bag which looks pretty festive.

Of all the things what I love most about the Fab Bag is that they come up with the theme or season specific prints or styles for their bags, which I think is the loveliest thing.

 

Anyways here are the contents of this month’s bag.

 

October Fab Bag 2016 Products –

October Fab Bag 2016

CAL Liquid Lipstick in shade Blush Pink

Full-Size

Price – 450

This is the product which got me so excited about this month’s bag. It’s a matte liquid lipstick in a beautiful blush pink shade which suits any skin tone. This is a full-size product and the color itself is so pretty and festive. I can’t wait to try this and show how it looks!

 

 

Votre Lip Gel Scrub –

Full-Size

Price – 300

This is another product am pretty excited about from this month’s bag. You know how much I love lip scrubs and finding one in the bag, I am pretty happy. I seriously can’t wait to try this lip scrub and share my experience with you.

Another full-size product in this month’s bag, so a big thumbs-up to Fab Bag for this!

 

Kaya Brightening Serum

Sample

It’s been a while since I last used the products from Kaya. And this sample reminded me of getting back to this skincare line to check out their new products. I am definitely hoping that this tiny sample would show me some result so I can get the full size.

Else am planning on getting their AntOx Vi-C Formula.

Either way, brightening serum sounds pretty good!

 

 

Vedaearth Cleansing Facial Oil

Full-Size

Price – 350

I read many rave reviews and the benefits of using cleansing oil on the skin and luckily this one came just in time. Fortunately, there are good reviews about this brand on the internet so I am hoping this works well for me as well. Since its full size, I have plenty of chances to observe how well this works. Will keep you posted on this one!

 

 

Stay Quirky Nail Polish

Full Size

Price – 165

This is the first time I would be trying the nail polish from this brand. Again, I loved the swatches and reviews I read so far. So I am definitely happy to get this one.

Though, I would have preferred a much softer or wintery color to try one.

 

 

So those were the contents of my October Fab Bag 2016. What did you get in your bag?

 

 

Hope you all had a wonderful Diwali!

September Fab Bag 2016

September Fab Bag 2016 has to be one of my favorites this year. This time the bag has a mascara, a face mask, face and body scrub, body wrap and nails tattoos. Can anything else be better than this? It felt like Christmas came early this time around!

Read about previous Fab Bag here – August Fab Bag 2016

Sugar Cosmetics Lash Mob Limitless Mascara – Black with a Bang

Price – 699

Buy – here

 

This is the newest launch from the Sugar Cosmetics and needless to say, it is also the highlight of this month’s bag.

I have been a fan of Sugar Cosmetics since I tried their Holly Go Lightly and Breaking Bare and I am hoping this mascara would wow me just like their lip crayons and matte lipsticks did.

On a quick try, I love how this mascara makes my lashes look thick and black! More on this later.

 

 

SaND for Soapaholics

Price – 236 for 20 gm

Buy – hereBBeauty

 

This is the first time I have got my hands on the product from SaND. I have read quite rave reviews about this mask from other bloggers and I can’t wait to see how it acts on my skin.

That said, I am glad I got this tiny tub of the face mask as this seems super convenient to carry on the travel. And it’s a detox mask, perfect for any day. Now with the vacation on my mind, I happy to see this in the bag!

 

 

AVA Deep Gorge Collection – Face & Body Scrub

Price – 325 for 100 ml

Buy – here

This came just in time! I tend to use face & body scrubs during this time of the year. And what’s best than getting a face & body scrub that looks like mini Christmas in a bottle.

This scrub is peachy-pink in color and smells heavenly. I can’t wait to use this and share my thoughts on same with you.

 

 

Neemli Naturals Tulsi & Sandalwood Body Wrap

Price – 550 for 75 gm

Buy – here

 

This is the first time I would be using a body wrap and considering the reviews I read abt this brand, I can’t wait to use and see the results myself. I am just hoping this stands up to its claims, I have few things on my wishlist from this brand already.

 

Nail Stickers from NFLM

Price – 80

Buy – here

 

This is probably the only one I am not so excited about. I wish they weren’t yellow looking but white ones. However, I might give a try just for practice as I have never tried nail stickers before. I know, but no design ever tempted me so much till now but seeing how lazy I feel these days and still wanting to have perfectly done nails, I think these would just serve the purpose for now.

 

So those were the products in the September Fab Bag 2016. Undoubtedly Sugar Cosmetics Mascara is my favorite of all followed by AVA Deep Gorge Collection – Face & Body Scrub and others.

 

What have you loved from September Fab Bag 2016?

August Fab bag

 

August Fab bag

Fab bag has been pretty impressive lately with the delivery and the choice of products in the bag, I think once you fall in love with this it’s hard not to appreciate it every time it comes around.

This August Fab bag too came in super early. I know am pretty late in posting – I was travelling a lot this time and it followed by travel sickness (if there is anything like that).

I think am quite settled to my usual routine now so am back to show you what I got in my August Fab bag this time and what I chose as my *Product of Choice*.

One of the best things about Fab Bag is they often give a chance to pick one of the products in the bag and this time it’s from the new brand they have introduced – Geri G.

 

Here are the products that came in this month’s Fab bag –

 

Geri G. Lip Gloss Crème – Bambe

This is the new brand that has been introduced this month and when offered a choice I picked the shade – Bambe.

Bambe is a pretty neutral shade. It smells amazing and is super creamy. It comes in a clear transparent gloss tube and is easy to apply. It glides on very well, doesn’t accentuate fine lines and suits even the chapped lips.

However, the shade is pretty light for the Indian skin tone to use as is but works amazingly well when teamed with a darker shade lip pencil.

I can’t wait to show you that!

This product is full size and is worth 1000

 

Just Herbs Malabar LemonGrass Invigorating Body Wash

Not a big fan of Just herbs brand but this body wash smells amazing! And with my addiction to body washes, I think I will be making an exception and use this up.

Let’s hope this one will change me into a fan! Fingerscrossed

 

Kronokare Anti Turm (oil) Repairing Hair Oil

Another brand I am not interested in but the product seems quite interesting though. I am yet to decide if I want to try or give it away but the mere mention of geranium, lavender and peppermint in hair oil sounds too good. So I might take a while to decide on that! If am using this up, rest assured am going to atleast do a short review!

 

Natural Bath & Body Gel Face Masque – Grapefruit & Vitamin C

I am a fan of face masques and this came in right on time. I have tried their mud mask before and was quite impressed. I can’t wait to try this.

Grapefruit and Vitamin C combination is often raved, I can’t wait to see how well this would treat my skin.

 

Livon Serum

I have got full size samples earlier and am glad they sent out samples this time. Samples are easy to carry around when in travel and I have a lot of travel planned this time! So am stashing this away for that time.

 

Gift Voucher from Aeom Couture – 25% off Coupon

Haven’t had enough time to look around the entire site but this site seems pretty good if you are looking for affordable fashion.

And as for me I never have enough clothes to wear any day, so this is a nice touch of sending across the voucher by Fab bag. I can’t wait to shop already 🙂

 

 

Overall a pretty impressive bag again, they literally had me at that Geri G. Lip Gloss which costs 1000 which is more than the cost of whole Fab Bag!

Such moments make me freaking love FAB Bag a lot!

 

What about you? Have you tried Fab Bag yet?

July Fab Bag

July Fab Bag is simply fabulous (again!). They had me at the bag itself. The bag has lip/kiss print all over in a muted purple pink color and with the matching zipper. It’s one of my favorite bags so far ( I know I say this too often but it’s true), more so as it matches to my blog theme!

That said, here are the contents in the July Fab Bag –

Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Lip Crayon in Poison Ivy

One of the best berry lip color in matte formula, this particular range is my favorite from Sugar Cosmetics.

First love being Holly Go Lightly followed by Mary Poppins, the Poison Ivy is the third that stole my heart. I can see myself wearing this all monsoon and winter, it is that good.

Another good thing about this shade is that it is pretty buildable. From pretty berry shade to a dark berry which nearly looks gothic, it’s one of the must-have lip colors.

 

Neemli Naturals Bengal Gram Exfoliator

This is another product am totally excited to try. I often use Bengal gram flour mixed with turmeric during colder months and this one just came in time.

This Bengal gram exfoliator contains turmeric, sandalwood powder, multani mitti, rice flour and yellow lentils; most of which I often use in my skincare on a regular basis. So am pretty sure, this is one of the products I would love trying out this month.

 

P.s – Did you know rice flour is often used in skincare products to brighten, lighten and get a radiant skin?

 

Pep Moisture Velvet Shampoo

Sample sized shampoos are one of my favorite things to see in the beauty bags! They not only make a perfect excuse to try something new before getting a full sized but also make a great option to carry when travelling.

One good thing about shampoo is it is SLS free and that’s a lot comforting to know before using! No?

 

Johara Instant Radiance Face Scrub

This creamy walnut scrub is gentle, free of chemicals and comes with a pleasant scent. It suits most of the skin types and gives a smooth, soft and buffed face without being harsh on sensitive skin.

One of the best scrubs I have used so far!

 

Overall a pretty satisfying bag again! And without a doubt, Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Lip Crayon in Poison Ivy is my favorite of all!

 

On a side note, while the Fab Bag did offer to choose lipstick shade this time; this selection is available only to 3, 6 & 12 month subscribers apparently. Shade for 1-month subscribers are customized by their team. Bummer, I know!!

I guess this should answer many of you who were curious as how we got our favorite lipstick shade. Now all the more reason you upgrade your subscription to 3 months or more just incase they come up with more such offers in future!
