DEMETER Colognes | Bulgarian Rose & Pruning Shears | REVIEW

Disclosure: This post is in collaboration with Demeter Fragrances, the products were sent to me by the brand, my thoughts on them are absolutely genuine and true.

Rose scents have been my favorite for the longest time. I am always thrilled to try rose scented products. My perfect pick for a scent would be something mild and gentle, like a fresh bouquet of pink roses, nothing over empowering but definitely something that would linger on for a long time.  Demeter brings a huge variety of fragrances and it was irresistible to try two of their rose variants, Bulgarian Rose and Pruning Shears.

2 Steps to Healthy & Strong Nails

Disclaimer: This post is in collaboration with Skin Actives, the products were sent to me by the brand, but the review is absolutely genuine and true.

My nails have rarely been bare since the time I discovered my love for nail polishes, which was in 2007…. It’s been 10 years and my love for painted nails has only grown. Like skin, nails too need care, attention, and nourishment to be healthy and strong. Back to back manicures have definitely had adverse effects on my nails but I make sure to follow my nail care rituals on a regular basis. I was lately introduced to this nail care duo from Skin Actives which comprises of nail serum and oil. It claims to nourish and strengthen nails… does it work? Read on to know more!

It was my first time with Kiko nail polishes. Prior this, I was a huge fan of maybelline nail polishes for the fact that they are affordable, super quality and quick dry.

But to my delight I got my hands on the kiko nail polishes and here is the detailed review along with the swatches.

Marks and Spencer Lipstick – Review

marks and spencer Lipstick

I love summers for the fact that they allow you to be colourful in every aspect! clothes… nail polishes… lipsticks… It’s absolutely okay to go bright on lip colour selection but in my opinion, sheer translucent shades looks cooler and more breathable. One such pretty shade is the limited edition Marks and Spencer Lipstick in the shade “Chiffon”. Chiffon is a sheer soft pink-mauve shade in a creamy-glossy texture with minute glitter particles. Not prominent enough to be tagged as glittery but subtle enough to give an overall shiny look. This can be a good pick for most of you but not a very suitable shade for majority of the skin types. So you must try it once before purchasing.

Packaging: The packaging is very similar to that of ‘Lakme Enrich Satin”collection. A silver case paired with a transparent cap. Basic and simple. Not very impressive though, the lipstick holder isn’t very firm, the lipstick twists and rolls down by itself while applying, so you have to hold it firmly. Moreover the cap doesn’t have a very good locking mechanism.

Quality and Texture: From the very first instance of application, the lipstick feels soft and smooth. Glides on easily and evenly leaving no patchy stains. Overall, it looks and feels soft, creamy and even.

Colour Pay-off: The colour stays intact till the time you do not eat anything. After which.. whoosh! disappeared completely not even leaving behind a mark of its existance! Reapplication is required time and again. On an average stayed on for 5 hours.

Price: INR 599/- for 4gms (But bough it for INR 290/- as there was a sale running on some of the M&S Lipstick collection)

Rating: 3.5/5

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

Though marks and spencer Lipstick did  a good job at the given price of INR 290/- , had it been for the original price of INR 599/-, the rating would have been lesser.

1. The packaging is too basic and not very sturdy. It kinda says ‘Handle me with care’.

2. The colour last for about 4-5 hours after which it vanishes completely!
