I am all in for beauty products that offer convenience. Generally I don’t carry a lot of makeup but when it’s meetings/office events I require to do a quick makeover to my face. In such scenarios a palette that offers all in one option works really well which is why when Revlon released their Eyes, lips and cheek palette I was very much interested in trying it out.
Coming to the palette, it’s compact and easy to carry around. I received this kit from Revlon team for reviewing and this is the Romantic Nudes 100 set. The palette mentions that the shades are universally flattering.
• Includes mirror and mini applicators
• Available in romantic nudes, berry in love, and seductive smokies

Eyes – The top two shades are shimmering shades, very light and not very pigmented. On the other hand the remaining shades are a bit promising because once you start applying the color is visible. The darker shades are decently pigmented, very build-able and blend-able. I would highly recommend to use a good primer as the base to build your look and to make these eye shade last longer ( I used Nyx primer) The mini sponge applicator given along with the product is okay to use. You can expect these shades to last at least 4-5 hours without fading out.
Lips: The two shades given at the left are lipsticks. One is slightly towards coral, it’s buttery and I loved this shade even without adding the lipgloss. The other shade is a light plum-ish color. Both are great shades, one for day and night look. There is a lipstick applicator with the palette but I used my finger which was easier as the lipsticks have a very smooth texture. The lip glosses are great too! Gives lips a healthy sheen and not too sticky.
Cheeks: The blush powder comes with a tiny and cute blush brush. Honestly, I didn’t find this blush helpful at all. I applied it several times but couldn’t see the color on my cheeks. It’s a very light shade and I have a pale/wheat-ish skin on which there was no effect.
- All in one compact palette
- Mirror included
- Easy to carry

- Darker eye shadow shades are more towards matte
- Shades to suit any skin tone

Korean beauty products have created their niche in this large beauty market. With unique products such as snail serum, oyster masks and many more..
Well I am not the kind who would experiment with any products containing animal contents so I chose to go green. I was sent these gorgeous products by Myskinchoice to try and the verdict.. Well read below guys, not giving everything away now!
Dermal Aloe Vera Gel
This product is exactly how one would imagine it to be. Clear as aloe liquid and lightly fragranced. I really like the texture as its light and quickly absorbs in skin, its best to apply in day time. though if you are like me living in a desert then this product is best for winters.
Aloevera is good to treat sunburns, anti aging and reduces acne. Recommending this gel to those who do not go heavy on makeup and need a light moisturizer for keeping skin hydrated. This product is very close to the actual aloe gel and requires frequent applications to see the results.
Verdict: for aed24, I am definitely buying this again!
Dermal Bamboo Sheet Mask
I generally use masks on weekends as I get time to multitask and relax too. So I used this mask sheet to see the results. It contains Bamboo essence but honestly the result was just about okay. My skin did feel tighter for a while but the effects wear off soon. I am guessing it is because maybe the product is too natural and not been messed with. Try it if you have a normal skin type, mine is combination skin and this mask didn’t help. However it totally doesn’t hurt to try out as its super budget friendly and has minimal side effects.

My inspiration of this post comes from a quote I read a few days back. I even shared in on my instagram (See below) Its actually so true.
No matter how you are, if your have gorgeous hair that just is the best feature to flaunt! I thought why not share my secret with you all.. here is a great DIY hair mask that will not only make your hair look healthy but also eliminate dandruff.
3 Tablespoon Castor Oil
3 Tablespoon Almond Oil
3 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
1/2 cup overnight soaked fenugreek seeds
Blend all the above mentioned ingredients into a paste and apply this from the root till ends. Focus more on the scalp as that is the dandruff affected area. I section my hair and apply this paste to cover the entire area. The smell is a bit overwhelming but hey if it works, anything for it. Tie your hair into a bun, cover it with a shower cap and leave the mixture in for at least two hours. Wash off the mask with mild shampoo, I chose Rahua shampoo as its 100% natural. I had to wash twice because of the strong smell of the oils and the fenugreek seeds. The result.. perfectly shiny and healthy hair!
- Extra mix can be refrigerated and stored upto three days.
- The measurements are according to shoulder length hair. If you feel these are not enough, you can add more almond oil to the mix.
