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

Contents of September Fab Bag 2016

September 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?

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 –

July Fab Bag

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!

 

What’s your favorite thing from July Fab Bag?

Fab bag never ceases to impress me and the June Fab Bag is no exception. It is definitely one of my favorite bags so far! I simply love the print on the bag this time, it makes a perfect travel companion as well as a great storage option for all those sample sized makeup things we want to carry around. It also looks amazing in the backdrop of pictures, check out my previous post to see what I am talking about!

Coming back, here are the contents of this month’s fab bag –

RoC Retin-Ox Wrinkle Correxion Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream – Full Size

I have been trying to get my hands on RoC products for a while now. They are not only quite popular amongst the beauty gang but also this one is an award winning product too. Not to forget they are pretty expensive!

So, getting a full sized product from RoC was the best thing in this month’s bag!

 

Skin Yoga Coffee Body Scrub – Full Size

Another popular product among the beauty bunch, I have read quite a raving review about this one too. I am a total hoarder for scrubs and this one just came in time. I haven’t tried much of Skin yoga products before but I am quite excited to try this one. If it impresses me, this is going to be in my staples list.

 

Be A BombShell Eye Crayon in Scandalous – Full Size

I have slightly inclined towards the eye makeup recently and this is definitely a much welcomed addition. Best thing about eye crayons is they are travel friendly and this one in dark grey color is just perfect to practice the smokey eyes I have been dreading for as long as I can remember.

Don’t get me wrong, I love eye makeup but I am too lazy and impatient to perfect the smokey eyes. But am hoping this one changes that and I get to wear eye makeup more often. Fingers crossed!

 

Karite Buerre Pure Shea Butter – Sample Size

This again is perfect for travel – for lips and cuticles. I have hard time remembering to carry my cuticle cream and/or balm when I travel. And this one just takes care of both. It has a pleasant scent and luckily because shea butter always lasts longer this one is going to last pretty long too.

 

Over all, I loved this month’s Fab Bag – got products for Eye care, Body care, Makeup and Skin care; that’s 3 full sized products and 1 sample size. I couldn’t ask for more!

May Fab Bag

may fab bag

It’s Fab bag time of the month and here I am today sharing what I got in the May Fab Bag. If I have to put it in one line – to be very precise and in short, I am in love!

For starters, I love the transparent aka see-through pouches. They make life so much easier when you are in a rush or when you are travelling. If I can, I would hoard on a bunch of these so I can sort all my stuff and never rummage through each and every pouch later and when these transparent pouches come in much needed summer colors, its pure love.

I absolutely love how gorgeous this pouch looks. Mesh detailing is a nice touch as it protects the pouch from cuts and torn with rough usage. So this is just so perfect for me.

And now that I have plans to travel soon, I am going to save this for my travel.

Now, before I go on with what I loved from this bag, here are the May Fab Bag contents –

may fab bag

Nyassa Tea Tree Face Wash

I have tried couple of Nyassa samples before and they never let me down. So finding another Nyassa product in the bag was more than welcome. On the other hand, I was happy to find a face wash which has tea tree.

Now which girl hates to get the perfect samples that she can carry for her trip?

Not me!

Seasoul Dual Eyeshadow Palette

One of the best things I have laid my eyes on lately. I am not much of an eye shadow girl and yet I did love this at first glance. I love purples and this eyeshadow duo seems so perfect for the coming colder months too.

So if you haven’t got your May Fab Bag yet, this is the reason you should get it right away!

Inveda Sunscreen Cream Gel SPF 30

January Fab Bag had Inveda BB Cream and 3 months later got this sunscreen cream gel with SPF 30. I usually never get impressed with a sunscreen; I am very picky at that. For as long as I can remember, I have used Plum Goodness sunscreen. Now trying this, I must confess I am in love.

I have used it on my face and there were no signs of whitish cast and best part, it worked so well under makeup too.

This is another product I simply loved getting in this month’s bag.

The Nature’s Co White Tea Night Cream

Night creams are something am always curios about. While this is not my favorite brand but then for this product I think I will make an exception to try it out.

Overall, May Fab Bag has been a fabulous one for me with Inveda Suncreen Cream Gel with SPF 30 and Seasoul Dual Eyeshadow Palette topping the list.

What’s your favorite from the May Fab bag?

April Fab Bag | It’s a Spring Thing

Beauty
April Fab Bag

April Fab Bag

April Fab Bag is very much inspired by the Spring theme this time. The bag itself is in pretty pink with the contents that are just right to help you transition into the season.

While the April Fab bag is my favorite thing of all this time (again), I seriously loved finding the Catrice Cosmetics Lip Pencil in nude shade.

The thing is, one of the colors that rocked most of the Fashion shows is nude and/or neutral color. And what’s best than to receive one from one of your favorite brands! That said, it’s nice to see some new names in the list – Rene Furterer, O3+ and Style Fiesta. The first two being sample sized shampoo and day cream, Style Fiesta earrings have made a nice change to April Fab bag.

I am certainly not into such bold earrings and yet I simply love how they make as a perfect accessory for summer, think of date nights by the beach or as a gift to someone you love.

Here are the pics –

Catrice Longlasting Lip Pencil 020 Hey Macadamia Ahey! – Full size – 300

Finding a lip pencil from Catrice Cosmetics was the best thing of all. I often hoard on lip pencils and this one came just in time. Besides am guessing this one would suit well with Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Crayon Lipstick in Holly Golightly.

Though Holly Golightly is a peachy-nude, it will make a nice change from using pink and/or peach lip liners.

O3+ Skin White Day Cream SPF 15 – Sample size

This is my first product from O3+ brand and I can’t wait to see how this one fairs. I have heard quite good reviews of this brand, so am hoping I won’t be disappointed.

Soultree Aloe & Rose Water with Skin Toning Licorice Cleanser – Sample Size

Soultree is one of my favorite brands; their lip balms are my favorite. So I can’t wait to see how this one works for me. Besides, the cleanser came just in time. I have been planning on switching up my cleanser for a change and I couldn’t be any happier than trying this out.

Rene Furterer Lissea Smoothening Shampoo – Sample size

One of the brands I have wanted to try but never got around to do. Smoothening shampoo sounds pretty good now that I have been battling dry and frizzy hair lately. Just hope I won’t be let down on this one!

Style Fiesta Accessory – Full size

It’s nice to find an accessory or two once a while. So these earrings are definitely a nice change from the routine.

Overall, Catrice Lip Pencil is the highlight for me. What about you?

Have you got your April Fab Bag yet?

March Fab Bag is here!

Beauty

It’s the Fab Bag time of the month and honestly, I couldn’t be any happier. This time they just nailed it and I have been over joyous to see another lip color from Sugar Cosmetics.

You see, getting a lip color is wonderful but getting a lip color from the newly launched collection is a whole different level of wonderfulness.

And without further ado here’s the contents in March Fab Bag

fab bag

SUGAR Cosmetics It’s A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick in Breaking Bare

I fell in love the second I swatched this beautiful shade. It’s a gorgeous neutral color with a rosy hue undertone. Best part, this would suit any Indian skin tone and I can see myself over using this shade in the coming months.

I must confess, I am currently under *love neutrals* phase but this one is pure love!

And if you have to buy only one shade from this collection, then it definitely must be Breaking Bare.

Suganda Neem Green Tea Plant Mask

Plant masks have been quite in news lately with the beauty pack and I am looking forward to try this out. More so because of the neem and green tea. They both have amazing properties of healing and keeping the skin clean of any gunk!

Wella Professionals Elements Renewing Mask

Again a travel sized hair mask and with the looks of it, this one seems pretty amazing. Can’t wait to try this one. That aside, with summers just around the corner and vacation on mind; am sure this is gonna accompany me on the next available opportunity.

Wella Professionals Elements Renewing Shampoo

I can never have enough of shampoo variants and this one came just in time. Again, with travel plans on mind, am sort of sorted about the products I want to carry this time.

You see, that’s one of the best things to get good samples!

Nykaa Nail Enamel in Strawberries n Cream

I was just checking out this collection the other day and even have some saved in my wishlist. Now that I have a polish from this collection to try, I am gonna wait and see its wear time and formula and then decide if I need the other shades.

But by the looks of it, am going to love this a lot!

So those are all from this month’s Fab Bag! Have you got yours yet?

February Fab Bag

Beauty
february fab bag

Fab Bag has grown to be one of my favorite beauty bag subscriptions lately. Honestly, their picks are so well thought of (when compared to others) and many times includes a huge surprise of the latest launches too.

One such moment was I got Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Lipstick. I was totally awestruck. I received a PR sample from the brand itself prior to getting it in Fab bag, so when I saw another shade I almost jumped out of joy. Priced at 799 ₹; these are one of the best crayon lipsticks in the market at the moment. What more can a lipstick addict like me want?

Anyways, am back again to share the details of my February Fab Bag with you.

Here’s what I got –

february fab bag

Chamki Nail Polish in Yellow

This is one of the new brands that have been introduced this month. This polish in Yellow is just perfect for the coming summer months and/or even for the day at beach moments. Formula seems pretty good and it comes in a simple packaging. But Rs. 250 for 11ml is something I would not go and spend for this brand.

HIKARI Cosmetics Blush in Harvest

This is another new brand that’s in this month’s fab bag. It’s a lovely earthy tone blush which would be just perfect for a sculpted look and/or for even a simple defined look for that matter. Another product in this month’s bag that seem season appropriate!

Unfortunately I am not a blush girl, so am really not sure if I would even swatch this at all!

Just Herbs Coorgi Coffee Lip Smoothening Salve

This brand has been pretty consistent in the recent fab bag’s and sometimes it’s good to see a skincare and/or a lip care product. Though I love my good old Vaseline and Soultree lip balm; am happy to receive another lip balm that’s got goodness of coffee.

**Did you know Coffee is anti-oxidant?

Spa Ceylon White Jasmine Facial Masque

This is one product I haven’t tried yet. Honestly, I have been pretty lazy on skincare front; workouts and running around have kept me busy. But am so looking forward for the lazy summer afternoons where I can simply sip iced teas with some serious skincare sessions.

Avene D-Pigment

It is a nice travel size sample to have around when you are pressed for time to pack your favorite skincare products for a trip. I usually like to save samples like these for my travel and throw in some mask sheets for an every day skincare and pamper time even when am vacationing.

But the best of all has to be the bag that these products came in like always. Nevertheless, the products are a nice combination of makeup and skincare which I absolutely love.

So have you got your fab bag yet? Which one is your favorite product?

January Fab Bag is a must buy and here’s why!

Beauty
january fab bag

January Fab Bag is one of the best bags that have come so far. So first things first, if you haven’t already subscribed for this month’s bag; then I insist you do!

This is the first post on Fab bag this year, so if you are new to this concept; Fab bag is India’s one of the beauty box subscription services. With a good mix of everything from makeup to skincare, the bags that these products come in so far have been a major hit (atleast with me… lol).

Incase you are looking for a coupon code to buy the January Fab Bag, here’s 20% off code for you – FABJAN20

Coming back, the catchiest thing in this month’s fab bag is, the bag itself. Makeup print makes this bag so pretty and girly and this one is definitely for keeps. I mean, which girl can resist such a cute bag? It is just perfect for travel to carry makeup and related,

And talking about the products, BBlunt mini hair polish is my favorite out of all; followed by Inveda BB cream and Votre Serum.

I love to see minis from brands like BBlunt and Inveda. They not only give us a chance to try the product couple of times, they make makeup travel kit much more interesting!

That said, here are the products that I received in January Fab bag  

january fab bag

BBlunt Spotlight Hair Polish

I have used this hair polish earlier and it is such a savior. Just a spray or two and it leaves even the super dry hair shiny and glossy. And with so much of hair styling, this is my go-to product for my hair at the moment.

And getting a mini just made my travel kit complete!

Inveda BB Cream

I have been planning on getting a BB cream from this brand for a while now and when I had a chance to grab one, I took the opportunity. Can’t wait to see how much this will impress me!

Votre Face Serum

I have been using face serums a lot lately and found them just perfect for my skin type – combination sensitive skin. But unfortunately none of the serums I own come in travel friendly bottles. Either they are too big for the travel and/or have come in a bottle made of glass making it very tricky to carry around.

Luckily this one sorted out that problem for me. Besides, unlike others, this one instantly makes my skin feel cool and it smells so good too! Perfect for coming summer days I say!

Natural Bath & Body Red Clay Mask & Natural Bath & Body Vit E Whipped Cream

Both are easy to carry around and are just perfect for travel. I haven’t tried any products from this brand yet so it’s a nice welcome to try these.

While this month’s bag itself is the primary reason to love so much’ BBlunt, Inveda and Votre are next in line for loving this month’s bag. Do I need more reasons than these?

So what are you loving in January Fab bag? What according to you is this month’s hit?
