Review on L'Oreal New Launch Magique Kajal

New L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique Review

Hey gals,

      This holiday season is real exciting and I had a great time on Christmas day. Well with the GOSF sale, Christmas offer and the New Year sale on I can’t resist the temptation of stuffing my house with all the products!
During the GOSF sale I found the new launch from L’Oreal at and immediately it went into my cart. It is the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Supreme Black Magique!!

Soon after the Maybelline Colossal, Lakme’s Eyeconic bandwagon I jumped to the L’Oreal Kajal Magique as well, as I love Kajals and the way it transforms my eyes. I own all the three and use them all and the new magique I have been using past week so thought of jotting down about the L’Oreal Kajal, the first ever launch from the brand.

Cleanser for Combination to oily acne prone skin in Winter

Vivel Cell Renew Pollution Protect Cleansing Cream + Scrub Review

Hey all,
Weekend has passed like a cloud but the weekdays are going very slow…wonder why….. Anyway with the season being winter I am trying to switch over my products to keep my skin clean and pimple free. My skin type in winter will be Combination (dry patchy cheeks and acne prone). If you have seen my recent post on the new launch of Vivel then you would probably know about the new range of cleansers.

Vivel’s Claim:

Claim was so attractive and that made me try the cleansing cream for the first time.
I got the 2 new cleansers among which 1 is gel based and the other is cream based. I have never used cream based cleansers so far as my skin is oily to combo. I have a HG cleanser which will never leave my routine but the evening cleansers keep changing. My usual cleanser which I use to remove all impurities from the all day work was too harsh on my winter combo skin and since my cheeks were getting I got the new Vivel Cell Renew Pollution Protect Cleansing Cream + Scrub.

The name itself looks so good and so I tried using it every evening to cleanse up skin from the entire day’s dirt and grime and what not…(first time a cream based cleanser)


Vivel has got a neat packaging with a flip cap that secures well. The squeeze tube works fine dispersing the required quantity of the cleansing cream. It is ideal for travel purpose and hence I love it.


In short; lovely fruity fragrance. In a way for the fragrance I like using the cleansing cream as it energizes  and refreshes my senses with the scent.


Although it is a cream cleanser it is not very thick and of semi liquid white cream which is almost runny. There are fine particles in the cream as scrub. The particles are not harsh on my skin and can be used daily. Although this cannot replace the regular weekly scrub I use.

Price: 50 ml for Rs 79

My take on the Cleansing Cream:

So here is how I use,

After coming home from work I splash some water on face and take the pea size quantity of the cream cleanser, rub between the fingers and apply on face with two hands. The fragrance is so good and the fine scrub particles are light and gentle to remove the dirt and impurities without clogging or drying out. It foams well and after about 30 secs of circular action I wash off and instantly I feel the smoothness and freshness on skin. I top it up with moisturizer (winter moisturizer). My cheeks do not feel dry or stretchy at all and the most important thing is never irritated the existing pimples nor caused any breakouts.

What I love..
  • Light cream cleanse
  • Fine scrub particles for everyday use
  • Not at all harsh
  • No clogging of pores but helps in de-clogging
  • Fragrance is fruity and I like it
  • No dry patches on cheeks, totally not drying
  • Did not cause whiteheads or breakouts
  • Affordable

  • Actually nothing but wish they bring this cleansing cream in 30 ml or 10 ml for travelling purpose.

Overall I recommend to all those girls with combination skin (even oily to normal skin not sure about the dry skin) to try it out if you are looking for a gentle cleanser to scrub of all dirt & grime as well as cleanse well without leaving any dry patches.

My rating: 4.5/5

My Wishlist for Birthday

Birthday Wish List:

Hi girls,

    How are you people doing? It is a grudging day in my office and I’m pissed off lately. But I am kind of excited for this December month and shocking that this year is almost about to end. (6months over since I completed my Mechanical Engineering graduation :O and I still can’t believe it). Anyway next year January is my birthday and boy this time I have decided to celebrate for the first time real well (hopefully) because past 4 years 
all through my college the day really sucked.

Anyhow I have made up a wish list for the first time and thought of jotting it down on my blog too :P. The list is nothing great just some little things which I would like to have or do on my day J

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner Review

Review on Maybelline Gel Eye Liner:

Hey girls,
           One of my favorite and the first gel liner is from Maybelline Newyork. Maybelline is one of my favorite brands and the one that has made me got interests in makeup as well :P (mean years back :D)
Having bought so many products from Maybelline, gel liner seems to be my favorite.

Maybelline claims their gel liner to be

·         Only our oil-free formula can hold highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base.
·         So color is more intense and lines resist wear for hours.
·         Smudge-proof and Water-proof.
·         The most intense line for lasting drama.

Read on to find if their claims are true..

Review on L'Oreal Paris Lip Crayon Glossy Balm - Peach Pleasure

L’Oreal Paris Lip Crayon Review:

Hey gals,
           I am back with one of my recent purchase at the trip to Bangalore. I always wanted to get one of these chubby sticks as it is so famous in the blogosphere. I have the Lakme Lip tints and you know it costs a fortune. Both the L’Oreal Paris and Lakme pricing for their stick tints shocked me as I expected the pricing to be other way round.
Anyway back to the review, I love love love the Lakme Lip Tint in Grape Hint! I wanted to try the L’Oreal one for its price so picked up the shade Peach Pleasure.

Here is what I think of L’Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss in Peach Pleasure
