Shopping Casual Wear at Craftsvilla

If you know me, you know how obsessed I am with palazzos and all things comfy. My search for them led me to Craftsvilla and to be honest I was pleasantly overwhelmed and spoilt for choice. 

Since I only wanted to look for something casual, that you can wear every day at home or work, I was happy that there were categories (like here for office wear and casuals, party wear, and festive wear. It makes it really easy to look for what you want exactly, instead of getting lost. 

These three things (in the picture above) instantly caught my attention:
First, the white palazzos, priced at Rs 799, looked so comfy and will pair with almost everything. Buy it here:
Second is this beautiful white printed skirt with a peacock feathered belt. This is currently at 50% off and priced at Rs 1099, such a steal.
Third is ths beautiful black and white printed kurta. You guys know how much I love monochrome, and it couldn't be more evident than this post.I loved the details on the sleeves, and the design. Buy it here:

Lastly, I also really liked this chineese collar, tunic kurti with a side slit. This was in the party wear section and I thought it looked stunning. You can pair this with a vibrant leggings or go monochrome like this pic over here, finished with high heels, and it will look gorgeous on anyone. This is for Rs 699 now, and you can buy it here:

How I Make A Perfect Cup of Coffee Using Vero Infuso

I've been getting addicted to coffee lately and the vero coffee machine makes it way better.  I love sipping into a warm cup of thick frothy coffee, it just gets my day started and makes me really productive. I wouldn't lie but makes me really crazy too. I tend to jiggle a lot of work together, and talk a lot more than usual. The vero infuso machine is very easy to set up, takes seconds and brews perfectly. You need to just insert the coffee pod into the machine and thats it.  The pods come in sleeves of 10 each and comes in 4 different types, Seven Seeds, Coorg, Annamalais, and Arabica.

The Vero Infuso machine pours out the perfect strength of esspresso or lungo and the best part is how quick it is. My favourite thing though is the milk frother. Its an electric milk frother, which churns the milk and turns it into a delicious thick foam.

Here's the video on how I like to make the perfect cup of coffee using the Vero Infuso white machine.

  • Insert the Coffee Pod into the machine
  • Press the espresso button
  • Add the Frothed Milk
  • Add a Little bit of coffee powder or chocolate powder to garnish.

You can add sugar to taste, I personally prefer mine without sugar.

Revlon matte top coat review

I've gotten a sudden urge to wear matte nails ever since I had done a matte gel manicure a few weeks ago. I had matte black nails and it made my nails look really good. I had seen the color bar matte top coat a long time ago but never picked that one up, and a few days ago I saw the entire new range of the Revlon matte nail polishes. They have a lot of different matte colours and a top coat. Although the colours looked beautiful, buying a top coat made sense the most because with this I can convert any one of my nail polishes into a matte one.

What I love about the top coat is how fast it dries and it converts any glossy nail polish into a matte one within seconds. Today, I am wearing the shade Lilac Cupcake from Nykaa, which is one of my favourite shades at the moment, topped with the matte coat. The top coat also makes the nail polish really long lasting. I absolutely love the way it flattens the colour and makes it look really sophisticated.

It comes in a tiny bottle priced at Rs 190/- and you can buy it Here: Or Here:

Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette Review and Swatches

Maybelline just launched the Blushed Nudes Palette, which consists of 12, cool toned, eyeshadows. The colours are all generally pink toned, with shades ranging from soft rosy highlighters, rose gold, and pink toned light and dark greys. The colours are all light and shimmery. There are a few matte-like shades, but they have a slight hint of glimmer in them too.

The eyeshadows are very smooth, but not the most pigmented. The light colours take at least three layers for the colours to show up vividly with a finger swatch and you'll need to use a wet brush to get the desired intensity. The darker greys are much more pigmented, especially the last three shades. Since the texture of the eyeshadows is smooth, it's very blendable, but you need to keep adding back so that the colour doesn't fade away while you're blending.

The shades are very wearable but nothing exceptional that's why I am not blown away by the palette. It's nice but could have been better in terms of the shades and pigmentation. Some of the shades will look very similar when worn.

The Blushed Nudes Palette is priced at Rs 899/- for 12 eyeshadows.

Sebamed Deep Cleansing Facial Toner Review

Ever since I handed over my Plum Green Tea Toner to my mom, I've been itching to get a new one and the search began. I've looked high and low on the shelves at all of the beauty stores when I found this tucked in at a pharmacy. I read the description and my brain said bingo. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I have never been so excited about toner before.

This is the Sebamed Deep cleansing facial toner for acne prone skin. It is meant to combat pimples, blackheads, and skin impurities. The reason why it hit bingo was the point about "skin impurity". Now, even though I use an oil based cleanser and then wash my face with a face wash, I still felt that my pores weren't clean enough and I was too lazy to use clay mask every other day. I've been getting those tiny white bumps that I usually get if I sleep wearing my makeup or don't wash it off properly.

When I used this toner for the first time after I used an oil to remove my makeup and face wash to wash off the oil, the cotton pad turned brown. I STILL had makeup on my face. I washed my face again.

This is when I knew the Sebamed toner hit the right spot. Now every time I wash my face and then swipe a cotton pad drenched in this toner all over my face I am assured that my face is squeaky clean before I apply serum or moisturizer. I've been using this twice a week, every day for two weeks now.

This toner helps in removing excess sebum, oil and dirt particles. It also has a pH of 5.5 which helps in maintaining the skin's natural acid mantle, so that bacteria cannot grow in it. It also is very calming and soothes the skin. It is definitely one of my top 5 toners for oily/acne prone skin.

It is priced at Rs 400 and you can buy it here:

Freedom Brow Pomade (Ash Brown) Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Dupe?

Hello everyone, its Fareeha from Freiha Writes and today I want to tell you about the only brow product I've been reaching for recently, the Freedom Eyebrow Pomade.

After hearing countless bloggers (including Debasree, of course) rave about the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade, I really wanted to give it a try. However, the stuff is expensive and my budget did not permit a splurge on the cult Anastasia Dipbrow. I went on a hunt to find a dupe/alternative product and it led me to the Freedom pomade.

I own the shade Ash Brown, which is a perfect match for my brow hair. It is a lovely, cool toned deep brown shade that will work well for us Indian girls.
The texture of the pomade is perfect, not too creamy and not too dry. I use an angled brush to scrape out a little bit of product from the tiny glass pot to fill up my brows.

This little pot will last me a long time, since the pomade is so well pigmented that you need a tiny amount per brow. This product helps me fill up my brows in record time! Within two minutes, my brows are DONE! And let me tell you guys, once the pomade dries, it does not budge (trust me, it didn't melt off my face even during the hottest summer days!).

All in all, I'm very impressed with this product. I won't be buying the Anastasia pomade for a while, since the Freedom one is sooooo good! My only regret about this product is that I wish they included a brush to apply the pomade with the product. But I'm willing to let that pass, since the Freedom pomade gives me brilliant results at a fraction of the price of Anastasia!
I will definitely repurchase when I run out and I highly recommend that you guys check this out if you want to get your brows 'on fleek' in no time!

You can buy it online at Nykaa and Flipkart.
