I shall try to update as much as I can but not cross boundaries to get some rare pigment which I know may not work.

Please understand that these pigments are for my professional usage and I am only rendering help to anyone who needs them but does not want to buy the whole jar. Hope this is clearly understood. Thanks a million to all those who have already bought them. I do have some jars of Universal Mix and Circa plum and that shall end up the story.

Spring Time

Spring will be here heard it right! Not the Spring season (which may take time) but the Spring collections have started pouring in the market. Its funny that brands don't take long to launch their Spring collections and while we are enjoying the blissful spring and before the scorching Summer arrives, we are tempted by the Summer collections. Probably the idea of this is to be ready for the seasons before they arrive, so that you prep and amp up the look but this is all silly and funny. It just helps rake sales..

Today's highlights are a few of enticing Spring collections in makeup that may happen to hit the Indian shores. Call it a January Makeup Buying Guide or just a Spring collection, its going to still be equally enthralling. And please do not ask me when it's coming. You'll know its presence soon.....

Lets have a look.........

Review : Guerlain Ecrin 2 Couleurs Eyeshadow in Two Extravagant

What do you do when you have one of the best eyeshadows in the world? You apply it and not only feel happy for yourself but you feel priceless and exquisite. That's certainly the feeling that one could get after using Guerlain Ecrin 2 Couleurs Eyeshadow in Two Extravagant.

What a surreal combination, ethereal finish and simply divine application! This is all you'd need with eyeshadows like these. Guerlain was able to eliminate the guess work and of course the effort taken in an eyeshadow application process and come out with one step easy solutions for a woman on the go. This is a perfect pairing of a monochromatic day makeup look to a scintillating night makeup look.

Lets see..........................

My Arden Goodies...........

If you all know, I had this amazing chance to be a guest makeup artist for an Elizabeth Arden event for which I got some lovely goodies. I couldn't resist sharing the goodies with you before they went into the reviewing section. I must say I have a ridiculous amount of backlog to cover in product reviews, tutorials and a lot of other stuff and I am shamelessly talking about hauls and press releases.

Anyways, these Elizabeth Arden goodies are from the recently launched Beautiful color line and Visible Difference skin care. I have been eyeing on their products for quite a while and this is a good way to begin using them.

Lets see what all I got............

Best Makeup Products of 2013 - Drugstore Brands

In the second part of the Best of 2013 makeup products, I shall be talking about the best from the drugstore brands. I am not a very big fan of a lot of drugstore brands as I get a better performance from the department brands but then there are some quintessential products in the drugstore brands that cannot be ignored and some that are amazingly performing better than what you pay for.

So here's a list of all those fabulous products which made to the best of 2013....

Review : Chanel Joues Contraste in Rose Petale

Chanel makes such beautiful blushes. I can't think of one that could be bad and actually I won't even buy if it was bad (LOL). Joues Contraste blushes are pigmented, smooth and silky and impart a fabulous radiant glow. Even the matte formulations have a silky glowing effect on the skin which is quite surreal given the fact that its a baked formula unlike baked blushes from MAC, Colorbar and Bourjois.

Everytime I buy a Joues Contraste, I wait to see the breathtaking result that I will get from the blush and every time I succeed. This time it is Rose Petale...........lets have a looksie....

Best Makeup Products of 2013 - Department Brands

Like every other blogger I know of, I also want to share the Best of 2013 Makeup Products that I loved, raved about and would repurchase if I get a chance to. I am making 2 different posts for Department and Drugstore brands to make it easy for people to relate to these brands separately. Its fun to rate the best products that make you smile and why not smile with all....The products I am mentioning need not be a 2013 launch, I may not own them at the moment but are the ones that entice me all the time....

I wont be including professional brands like LORAC, MAC, MUFE etc and wont be including Bobbi brown, Benefit etc. as they are not launched in Mumbai. So lets have a look at the Best Makeup Products of 2013 - Department Brands which Beauty Traveller loves and raves......

Review : Guerlain Cils D'Enfer Mascara - Best mascara of 2013

Every year NEW mascaras are born...but there are some which make to the top charts. These are the performing mascaras that are the haute couture of the Beauty world. Guerlain Cils D'Enfer Maxi Lash Mascara is one of those amazing mascaras that made it to kits of Pros and amateurs and has been raved about everywhere in the beauty world.

A lot of thought process goes behind making a mascara and its always a hit or miss situation. When department brands make a mascara, its for highly selective audience who has to be kept enticed and that's the reason why they would not compensate on any of the smallest thing. Saying so, lets have a look at one of my favorite mascaras of 2013.........Guerlain Cil's D'Enfer mascara................

Press Note - Lancome Art Liner

I couldn't resist this press note. I have the Diamond Black liner from these new series and it is so amazing. A must for any makeup fanatic.............. 

Long wear and intense colours for a bold effect

Artliner, the iconic eyeliner by Lancôme, celebrates its 20th anniversary! Lancôme honours this event with a new, colourful line that takes intensity to a new level: Artliner 24H.

A new chapter in the Artliner legend

As chic & playful as the original range but now with extremely long-lasting 24-hour wear, Artliner 24H dresses up eyes in intensely metallic colours. A new formula with the “Flex Polymer” complex is the secret behind the exceptional wear of this high-tech make-up, which offers a shiny effect and ultra-saturated colour ensured by its high concentration of pigments. Waterproof and smudge-proof, the make-up result stays impeccable at all times and in all circumstances for eyes that look striking all day long. Its legendary applicator, which traces a dense and incredibly precise line, makes application easy and enhances eyes in a single step for an almost professional result.

Colour by Artliner

To adapt to every woman’s style, Artliner 24H comes in ten new bright, metallic and very pop shades for graphic make-up with guaranteed glamour: a wealth of vibrant colours for an intense and bold effect – and eyes that are more captivating than ever! Artliner 24H adapts perfectly to the eye looks designed by Lancôme, the essential allies of Hypnôse mascaras and palettes. The shades Argent, Turquoise and Améthyste frame “doll eyes” twinkling with freshness, while Chrome, Saphir, Or and Cuivre create the chic and elegant “Star” look. Finally, the “Drama” make-up look is accentuated with Diamant Noir, Emeraude and Jade for deep and intense eyes.

Artliner 24H invites you to turn the spotlight on your eyes and indulge in colour with the utmost simplicity. A new example of the “make-up made easy” philosophy so dear to Lancôme. Like Hypnôse Palettes, the range also benefits from the quick and super-instructive decoding lessons offered by the new Lancôme tutorials (to discover on YouTube). They give all women, even the least experienced, the tips and tricks of a professional make-up, while leaving them free to explore, amaze and wow. Free and cheerful femininity that is so very Lancôme, for whom happiness is the most attractive beauty.

Review : MAC Lip Mix - Crimson

This is the most amazing and one of the best lip products I have ever seen and used till date. Its the perfect color one would want on their lips for their D-day. I have used this product on almost all the brides I did this season including the bridesmaids and their relatives and everyone simply raved about the longevity of this product and how good it made their lips look. Of course, calling it the touch of the PRO!!

So lets have a look..............

Review : Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in Accent

What a great time of the year to begin with such a fabulous product! Not that I got this product late, but in the late Decembers and slowly after all the editing it made its way on the blog. I could rate Accent blush as one of the most beautiful blushers of the year and you would want to know why? This is color chameleon blush and it really changes the way it looks like when built up or when applied on different skin tones.

So lets see how beautiful this blush is going to be............................

Look of the Day - Hollywood Inspired

We were watching a Lindsay Lohan movie where she plays the character of Elizabeth Taylor and we were so inspired to do this look the very next day. It was a casual evening supper with some guests and what fun to be all dolled up for such an occasion.

So lets see what products were used to get this look............................

Look of the Day - Smoldering Shimmers

Prerna and I planned to do an ultra glamorous look for the evening meeting cum dinner with some really prominent people in the film business corporate. To revive from the trauma of the mundane beige jacket from Ralph Lauren for the evening I chose a palette of bright blue pastels and intense purples with hither thither shimmer and glittery sparkles and the look was scintillating. 

I believe that there's nothing wrong if a hint of glitter goes on the face at the right places. It adds the magical touch one needs to spark up the life's most mundane days. Of course not be OTT... So lets see what products were used to get the look.......

My new resolution for 2014

I have done some new year resolutions to follow and break, even for this year...LOL...I think its not bad to make resolutions as this at least gives you a direction to think and head where you want to...

So here are a few of mine.........................

Bridal Sangeet Makeup

This is the makeup I did for Sangeet of Afrah's wedding. It was really amazing and her dress was a stunning number. Quite a unique combination of a light henna green attire with antique gold work and embroidery and a beautiful pink veil which covered and contrasted the green so brilliantly. I must say this was one of the most stunning outfits I have ever seen on a bride. Its spelled understated elegance with an Indian princess charm.

So lets see what products I used for make Afrah, picture perfect.....for the Sangeet...........

Review : MAC Powder Blush in Hot Nights

This is one MAC Powder blush that I picked up from their much spoken about TEMPERATURE RISING collection. It vanished from the shelves so fast and this was the only unsung hero blush left behind. Maybe it was the color that scared everyone or whatever, but I had a chance to grab this and really like it.

Lately I have been buying a lot of MAC stuff and its now the time that I should include some MAC reviews on my blog to give justice to this professional makeup brand (mind you...not luxury) on a professional makeup artist's blog like mine.

So lets have a closer look at this blush..............
