Summer is here, As much as we want to flaunt all our spaghetties and sleeveless clothes, dark underarms can be a bit worry. With these kitchen remedies you can lighten the dark underarms.

Causes :

This is no brainer. Darkness is caused due to shaving, hair removal creams, tight clothing, deodorants. It also is caused to hormonal imbalance, diabetes.

Methods: 

Lemon Juice : Where there is tan, there is Lemon. Lemons are known to get rid of the tan, dark spots. It also helps lightening the dark underarms. Apply the juice and leave it on and wash it off after 20 -25 minutes. You can even leave that on as it acts like natural deodorant.

Cucumber Juice : Dip the cotton Pad/ball and apply it on underarms. Leave it on till it dries and wash off with cold water.

Potato Juice : Make a juice out of potatoes and apply them with cotton ball. Leave it on to dry for atleast 15 – 20 minutes and wash it off with cold water.

Baking Soda : Make a paste by adding little water and baking soda. And apply evenly on the area. Leave it on till dries. Wash it off while gently scrubbing.

Multani mitti / Fuller’s earth : Make a paste of Multani mitti / Fuller’s earth and water. And apply like a pack on the underarm area. Wash it off when it is  softly dried. You can even add few drops of lemon juice in the mixture.

Meanwhile Switch to waxing or get laser hair removal done. Be consistent with these remedies. As they are natural methods they take some time to show the desired results. A little bit of darkness is quite common, don’t let his stop you from flaunting all your bright summery clothes.

Bellapierre Ruby Lipstick

I got this from one of the fabbags I ordered couple of months ago.

l1

You Can order your Fab bag here : Click here

This beautiful ruby lipstick from Bellapierre cosmetics has become my favorite red lipstick instantly.

l2

How I like it :

  1. Glides like butter on the lips and even has faint butter scent in it.
  2. Pigmentation is good. Though you need few swipes to get the bold color, if you looking for everyday wear, one swipe is good.
  3. Does not transfer the product.
  4. Has 24 months shell life since opening the product.
  5. Good staying power.
  6. Does not bleed
  7. Does not settle at the creases.
  8. Moisturizes as well.

Till now i don’t have any thing negative to say about it. It looks good on all skin tones.

That’s how it looks on me

Lakme Absolute Precision Liquid Liner

  • Super Long wear
  • Waterproof
  • Ophthalmologically tested

Price : Rs. 450/-

e3

It is a pen like liquid liner which gives more precision while applying. Liquid liners are best to give that dramatic effect or to draw a very thin line, but is not easy to apply. With this liner the tip is like a nib of the pen and you just have to draw however you like it.

How I like it :

e1

I am on the fence with this one.

  1. I like the application part. It is comparatively easy to apply but not so easy as it looks like.
  2. Perfect for winged liners.
  3. Pigmentation is good.
  4. Stays on for almost 2-3 hrs when you are indoors.
  5. If you have dry lids then as the products dries it shrinks the skin, causing a bit of irritation.
  6. Smudge proof

e2

  • The one most important thing I didn’t like is, it is not water proof as it claims, it comes off even a single drop. When You step out into sun or sweat you get the owl eyes. This is a good product if you stay indoors or in air conditioned rooms.

Colorbar Mascara Duo

Colorbar Illusion Mascara Duo

m1

Price : Rs. 450/-

How I like it :

I Curl my lashes but I don’t use mascara much. The most forgotten product in my vanity is Mascara.Till date I have not finished even one bottle. I just replace them every 6-8months. Though not regular  I do like using them every now and then .This time I Picked up a Colorbar one. Lets see how it worked out.

This is a Duo which has both Lengthening and Volumizing mascara, both in the same tube.

m2

  • 2 in 1 mascara black mascara
  • Dries out quickly
  • Easily removable with makeup remover
  • Gives natural finish
  • Not waterproof

m3

Both the wands looks similar, hence the effect looks the same. If both applied on the lashes, it makes lashes look a tad longer. I may not buy it again as i want to try out other products but if you looking for subtle or natural finish this is a good buy.

Random Talks

Today is one of those days where I am overly emotional and breaks down for no reason. Yeah you guessed it right. So nothing as such happened, as I am overthinking so there are many things happening virtually. Irony is that, Most of the days, I squeeze in sometime to write here and today I have absolutely no work and just feel like not.

view

I scanned all my mails, drafts and folders if I find anything to write about. But then if I write any review in this state of mind it would be not fair. So, decided I will write what is happening with me.

  • I am questioning everything that’s happening in my life right now.
  • I want to go for a walk but thinking of going for a walk soon.
  • OK now that got me to thinking should I eat something while I am out.
  • Sky Got a bath today . (My pet love)
  • I won few arguments which already happened and spoke nothing during that time.
  • I am planning the argumentative scenarios and already winning them incase they happen in future.
  • I am writing a book and making it to a movie both virtually of course.
  • I regret sharing that information with that particular person. (Overthinking)
  • I have lot of healthy and active lifestyle. Oh wait, I have a healthy and active lifestyle in a mansion facing sea and on the hilltop. (Sea!!?? I am not even a sea person)
  • I look fit in the above mansion so I must have already started eating healthy and work out.
  • I am counting virtual workout as real workout now Because I have to sign off and go do nothing.

Price : Rs. 525/-

How I like it :

I bought this recently and wanted to write a review after trying it on. It s been a week since i started using this and it did not disappoint me.

  • Inbetween cream and gel consistency
  • Faintly Fragranted.
  • Soaks in easily.
  • Does not feel heavy on the skin.
  • No break outs.
  • Instantly feels smooth and soft.
  • Controls oil. One thing to mention I wake up to  oil free, smooth skin in the morning.

I somehow had high expectations from this one. Though it didn’t give me great results, it did not disappoint me. Oh, the jar is so pretty. A classic Purple and Gold Combo.

Update : I have stopped using this as it is making me turn a bit darker. I wanted to waive off all the other options to zero it on this. After slowly eliminating all the other products its confirmed that this one is the culprit. 😛

 

Maybelline Fit me Foundation

Matte+Poreless (Normal to oily )

Shade : Warm Honey #322

Price : Rs. 525/-

f3

How I liked it :

Finally i got my hands on this one. Since I gave away my Clinique foundation ( Review ) to a dear friend of mine, i was on hunt for a good foundation. I like light coverage, buildable foundations. I usually use BB creams or tinted moisturisers  but I do like using a foundation. It feels like I have got my canvas ready.  Considering the climate, the foundations which are weightless and does not clogs the pores are really important. I saw rave reviews about Maybelline fit me and thought Will give it a try. And I could not find anywhere at hometown, thought would order online, but was not sure about the shade,and finally, finally, I got a chance to pick up during one of my work travels. Lets get right into it.

How I liked it:

Started a love affair since it touched my face for the first time. I absolutely love it. It is all I was looking for in a foundation and what more I got the exact right shade and that too in my budget.

  • Liquid foundation
  • Blends easily and feels light
  • Light coverage
  • Buildable
  • Matte finish and does not dry out the skin
  • Does not clogs the pores
  • It does what it claims.
  • This is one of those products that i see using it completely.

Super Super happy with this. I definitely recommend this to others. Have you tried this yet? Would love to hear your comments below.

ColorBar Creme Touch Lipstick

Weekend is here!! Happy Weekend. After a long tiring week, weekend is a must thing. You know what? There should be a weekend for every long tiring day. Too much Eh ! 😛 . So How are you all? How was your week ? Mine you must have understood by the excitement of my weekend. Was travelling constantly and am back home now . Summers are even barely started and i am already feeling the heat here. 😦 .What are your weekend plans? Mine is eating a lot of home cooked food. I did a small haul while travelling. Got my Lazy A** out of the bed today to do the reviews. Here s the first one.

Shade : #008 C Classic Mauve

Price : Rs. 475/-

How I like it :

cb1

I already have a Tangerino 015 shade ( Review here ). Though was not too happy with Pigmentation, they glide on lips like butter and keeps them moisturised. First, I went to Inglot, after trying out their lipsticks, i fell in love with the mauve shade. But they didnt have the stock of that shade, so disheartened came out of the store. As I was window shopping, I was generally trying out the shades at their counter, and found this. Lets see,

The creme touch collection are their range of cream lipsticks.

  • Silver Sturdy packaging makes it Travel friendly.
  • A pretty mauve shade for everyday wear.
  • It Glides smoothly on the lips and keeps them moisturised. You can even get the burnt butter kinda smell.
  • Pigmentation is not as great as expected. Needs more than 2 swipes to get the exact shade.
  • Feels light on the lips.
  • Staying power is not more than 2 hours and leaves a tint behind.
  •  SPF 15.

That’s How It looks on me.

cb2

For me, these are more like a tinted lipbalms which feels light and smooth.

Would I buy again?

A different shade Maybe. I was not even planning on picking up this one. But I did, so Never know. Would I recommend? Oh Yes Definitely. A pretty shade at affordable price. I say Go for it. 😀

 

 

 

 

 

Revlon Colorbust Matte balm

lip1

Color : Sultry Sulfureuse #225

Price : Rs. 790/-

How I liked it :

I have been living on this lip balm from past 2 weeks. I planned my travel for a week and it is extended to almost 3 weeks now. I packed light this time and that includes my vanity too. So I have this one and the other is Mary Poppins (Review ).

Sultry, to me is a nude peach with brown undertones. On me its almost becomes a nude shade, which I absolutely love. It gives a fresh look to my face.

  • Great Pigmentation (One swipe is enough to get the color)
  • Glides on smoothly .
  • Twister packaging, so no need of sharpener. Twist the silver base of it.
  • Have minty fragrance. Which I like. Some may not like though.
  • As it is a balm it moisturizes pretty well.
  • On contrary to the above, as it has matte properties,it tends to dry out the lips.
  • Staying power is super good. Stays on the same for almost 3- 4 hrs leaving a nice tint behind.

lip2

It does transfer a bit. Keeping the price apart this is an absolute travel companion. Just twist and use.
