My thoughts:

Lets start with what I like:

I love that these lipsticks are very pigments. You just have to apply it once and that’s it..you are good to go!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick

The texture is creamy and slides effortlessly. It’s really moisturizing. It doesn’t dry my lips at all. It lasts for almost 5 hrs with eating and drinking, which I don’t think is bad for a creamy lipstick.

The shade is brown with a huge amount of shimmer. I’m not really a big fan of shimmer lipsticks but I don’t mind one or two in my collection.

What I don’t like about the lipstick is the way they smell. Its sweet, not the nice sweet but a sweet that makes you feel sick. I think they should change the way it smells.

Over all I think I love this for the texture and the pigment. If they change the way it smells and reduce the amount of shimmer I would love this lipstick!

Book Review: Private India by Ashwin Sanghi and James Patterson

Private India

Ashwin Sanghi, the well-known Indian author and James Patterson who is international thriller author have teamed to write ‘Private India’. James Patterson and Ashwin Sanghi have brought the series of Private novels set in Indian background.

The story is involves a lot of characters who have an air of mystery almost two-dimensional.

Private is one of the world’s leading detective agency run by Jack Morgan. Its India head is Santosh Wagh, who is an ex-police officer. The story starts when a Thai surgeon, who was visiting is murdered in her hotel room. The hotel employees Private to solve the case, police is more than happy to let Private solve the case, provided the credit is given to the police department (everywhere there is a give and take!!).

The first murder is followed by many others. The serial killer uses a yellow scarf to strangle all the victims.

While all this was happening, there is another plot that is coming to shape. Terrorists trying to blow up an international target at Mumbai.

This is a book you will not want to stop reading, a complete page turner. I was forced to keep reading it till the end, just 450 pages away. If possible I would have skipped work to read this!!!

Love the book and a good read for all!!!

‘Sea Me, Hear Me’ blush

‘Sea Me, Hear Me’ blush

I’m going to review a beautiful blush from the MAC Alluring Aquatic collection called ‘Sea Me, Hear Me’. It’s a gem and I’m completely in love with it!! Not many people liked this blush but I completely fell in love with it!

‘Sea Me, Hear Me’ blush

‘Sea Me, Hear Me’ blush

The packaging is outstanding, it’s actually the biggest selling point of the collection. It comes in a metallic teal packaging with water droplet details on it.

This is the first extra dimension product that I’m trying from MAC. The surface of the blush has a beautiful wave-like pattern with the brand name engraved on the surface.

The texture of the product is really smooth and silky. The color is sheer but is buildable. The product is easy to blend and doesn’t feel powdery at all. The product leaves a slight sheen on the skin. The color looks amazing on fair to medium skin tone.

‘Sea Me, Hear Me’ blush

The product stays for a good 6-8hrs before it starts fading.

The shade Sea Me, Hear me is a described as “beige pink” by MAC. It’s a nice natural rosy pink brown shade that looks really natural on my medium skin. It’s a perfect natural blush for me and that’s what I love!
