It is a  sheer lip gloss almost clear with little pink-peach colour, (i guess can call frosted pink : -p ) ..

I got my first tube as a gift from my friend in US. This one i bought online. Yaa..I repurchased it. :-).

 Price on bath and body works site is 7 $ and with an offer Buy 2 get get 1 free.

 I bought it from a ebay store named "Overstockmadness*123"for 4 $ and shipping costed 3 $.Ineffect 7 $.

I wish i have taken photo before i opened the courier t. It had been neatly bubble wrapped with smiley face sticker on it. Packing looked adorable. The best part comes next - there had been a surprise gift with it - a strawberry scented lip conditioner.

Well i know in photo it looks really bad, but it is because i use to keep it roughly in my office  bag and apply it every 4-5 hours.So i am the sole culprit.

 About lipgloss- It tastes and smells yummy!! Well i know, it is not the first thing to tell about a lip gloss, but thinking about this one, that is the first thing coming to mind.

Colour is almost clear so that it just illuminates lips with slight colour.

Added directly from tube

After spreading
After 1 hour

After washing with water
 Glitters is just correct, not too much not too less (Well in my opinion)

Staying power is comparitively good. You can see even after washing with water, little little glitter remains.(But mostly i will taste it from my lips frequently so that nothing will remain  :D. I cant control myself :)

Ingredients list can't be read clearly from these photos .But it contains Jojoba seed oil and Vitamin-E which gives it high moisturizing power.

It is also not tested on animals.

It is very smooth to apply and will glide along and not sticky compared to many other lip glosses.


  1. It is very moisturizing, you can even apply without applying lip balm under.
  2. Will stay on for 5-6 hours. Even after washing little illumination will be there.
  3. Nice daily wear color, not over powering
  4. Last but not least smells and tastes delicious!!
  1. Not available in India.
 Will buy again? : Since have used 2 tubes, would like to try another  bath and body works flavor!!

 PS: The lip conditioner got as free gift have sunscreen, vitamin E and aloevera and it really do condition my lips compared to all other lip balms i have used . It have nice smell also.Only negative thing about it is i prefer tinted lipbalms more. But   I am planning to buy it after this tube finishes due to its moisturizing power.

Aloevera gel

Aloevera have multiple uses in skin care regiment.

  •   It acts as a natural barrier and shields our skin from dangerous toxins.
  •  It is helpful for frostbite, burns, insect bites, blisters and allergic reactions.
  • It makes the skin smooth and glowing.
  • It relieves heat on the skin caused by sunburn.
  • It destroys bacteria that try to invade cuts or open wounds.
  •   It is an excellent skin moisturizer that keeps the skin flexible by giving oxygen to the cells which in turn increases the strength and synthesis of skin tissue and thus makes skin smooth and glowing.
  •   It is beneficial for the cosmetic products such as make up, anti-wrinkle creams, facial masks, skin conditioners and lipsticks.
  • Aloe vera is useful for preventing the aging of the skin. It nourishes the skin and tissues with body-loving nutrients such as vitamin E and C. 

I had been searching for Aloeveral Gel for long time. It is funny here you can get Aloevera plant abundantly, but can't get Aloevera gel. Finally i got  Aloevera gel from Nautre's essence, who manufactures Coloressence products also.

I t comes in a small plastic  pot which looks cute .

Gel have a very  pretty green colour .  But from what i heard aloevera gel is normally colourless, so i guess colour imparted by artificial coloring.

 Smells very nice and refreshing. I often apply on hands just to smell it.

What company claims?

A treatment moisturizing gel ideal for softening the skin, protecting it from sun damage and acting as a guard and immunizing agent against skin ailments like dry skin, acne and itchy skin conditions. The gel is an ideal solution for gifting you soft, glowing and pampered skin..


 Now here i have doubt. Key ingredients given back of the carton is Aloevera extracts, Pepper mint oil and mineralised water .But you can see in second pic, in front of carton it is given as Aloevera and tea tree oil. From what i understood, pepper mint oil and tea tree oil are different. :-/

I use this gel in morning as a substitute of moisturizer. It gives an instant cool feeling and makes me refreshed.It do makes skin smooth and supple even if temporarily.When applied, within minutes it will be absorbed to skin , so need to be afraid of oily look.

Price : 55.00 INR for 100 gm.


  1. Smells very nice.
  2. Looks very pretty.
  3. Gives an instant cool, refreshing sensation.
  4. Moisturises skin and make it smooth and supple.
  5. In expensive.
  6. Will get dried fast on skin and wont give you oily look.
Cons : 

  1. Comes in a pot, so you have to put fingers in pot every time you use.
  2. Confused about ingredients.
Will buy again?..Yes..Till i find a good alternative.

Ear ring box

Today i considered several products to write. I even thought of posting my ever favorite reliable recipe of "Ginger - Capsicum Fried Rice".Then my eyes fell on the cute red box sitting in corner of my dressing table.My ear ring box!!..Then i thought why can't write about it. This  is one of the most useful accessories i have. I am sure all of you gorgeous ladies will be having loads of ear rings.So it will be helpful to you people also :).

I always like browsing through ebay pages , a kinda easy  virtual window shopping ;-)

I browsed through a ebay store named "Hyderabad Treasures". Some really nice and eye catching jewelery items had been there. But what  i most liked is  this - Ear ring box.

Price also had been reasonable 299/-INR (Around 6.5 $) with free shipping.

 All over, the transaction had been quite pleasant.Seller couriered it via DTDC courier and tracking details are also provided. At that time I shifted my apartment and little confusion arose . But seller Hadia promptly replied to my questions and helped me to solve it.Shipping  had been very fast i think, but due to above said confusions i received courier in my hands after one week,still also it is quite fast i think.

It really do save space and prevents loss of stones and other damages to ear rings.While traveling it is super handy :).

Before,  i used to store my all my ear rings together, which ended in losing stones and difficulty in locating the pairs. Then i started putting them in small small ear ring boxes, which became very difficult while traveling.We ladies will want to take all the earrings while going somewhere and no: of those little boxes will be numerous :-p.

The box is covered with red velvet cloth and it is looks very cute.According to sellers specification it is made of fibre and covered with velvet. Length is 9" and width and height is 3" respectively.

In this box at a time u can store around 16 pairs of earrings.

So if any of you find this useful, i will put the link to ebay store,so that u guys can easily get it!! Way to go..

Nyx - Round Lipstick Tea Rose

Usually i wont get much time for blogging as i would like.But telling you, it feels really nice when you returns back, unexpectedly see some comment there.:)

Its long since i'm hearing about Nyx. I   desperately wanted to try that well heard , cheap but good quality brand which is not available in India . Then i remembered about loyal ebay and ordered there.

I bought from seller "angelstemptation"  .  Lipstick costed me 1.99 $, where are shipping cpsted 2.5 $..yaa..shipping costed more than product :p..Whatever, still also it came only 192 INR..So i thought the deal is not bad.

I ordered the shade "Tea Rose" seeing swatches in other review sites . 

Product had been nicely bubble wrapped and reached me in perfect condition. :)

At first  look, the bottle looked cute.

But the tubes are very light and will break on dropping.At bottom you can see the color of lipstick, so that you don have to open the lippie for knowing colour.  It is not lipstick, but piece of soft plastic that's molded into the clear bottom.


Product color also had been very good up to my satisfaction .It is a light pink color in flash  and without flash a pink with mauve .

It is quite creamy in consistency. But between i had to go to Chennai , and in Chennai heat it began to rundown inside the tube. :(

Color is quite nice, but unfortunately, it makes my face more paler :(..So what i do is apply Nivea Pomegranate lip balm under and apply NYX tea Rose on top :) .

Pros :
1) Quite creamy in consistency. Will glide over smoothly.
2) Affordable.Not at all expensive with good quality.
3) Very nice pink, not over powering.
4) Moisturising

1) Tends to make lines on lips more visible.
2) Package too brittle
3)Due to smooth consistency, tends to wear off after 3-4 hours.
4)Not available in India,have to buy online. 

Will buy again ? - Yes
