Velour Eye Lashes-Review, Photos & EOTD

Hi everyone,
I have tried different types of false eye lashes. Usually I love to try different kinds of lashes. different kinds of lashes give our eyes different type effect. Sometimes makes them natural sometimes dramatic. They increase attraction of our eyes.
Today I’m going to show a pair of exquisite false eye lashes from an exciting eyelashes brand Velour. The company makes only false eye lashes. you can say it a luxury brand of false eye lashes.
some words about the brand
Two beautiful girls started their own company based in Toronto called Velour Lashes! Mabel & Angela are the founders of this new and exciting brand.


Velour Lashes
Velour lashes comes in different kinds of designs out of which I chose the natural looking pair called Are Those Real?
Cute packaging
Velour ThoseReal Eye Lashes
ThoseReal are soft natural eye lashes which are helpful in giving the eyes a natural and soft look.

What the Velour Lashes says...

 Packaging

They come in a beautiful purple box which is very nice to secure the lashes in its case. The box is very light weight so it's easy to carry out anywhere we go.

haha, I'll be careful!
How to use and take care of them

On the Velour Lashes website, they actually included very detailed and easy to understand instructions to apply these lashes AND how to take care of your lashes. 

In the mirror of my own experience

I never use false eye lashes in real life but love to wear them in my photos. When lovely Mabel and Angela approached me for reviewing their lashes they asked me to choose my favorite one. I chose these natural effecting lashes. To be honest it's my first mink lashes. When I got these lashes I was surprised to see its luxury and cute packaging. They reached to me in a very secure package. Inside the package its beautiful case made me happy. The lashes are kept inside the purple box very beautifully. When I first picked up the lashes from the case, it felt really light weight. The lash bands are so thin & light weighted that made them very easy to apply them on the lashline. I wore them on my eyes in seconds without any problem. After wearing them they looked so natural, the only difference was they had increased the length of my lashes and gave my eyes a beautiful effect. I hate the thick band of some lashes, which makes them difficult to apply on the eyes. I really love the quality of these lashes. The good thing is that these are completely handmade and are made by 100% mink fur. My eye makeup has become easier with these lashes. I want to try more lashes from this brand.

Good points
Cute and beautiful packaging
Very light weight
These are totally hand made and are made by mink fur.
It’s so easy to wear them on my eyes
The thin band made it very easy to wear.
They give the eyes a natural and beautiful look
The case provided by company makes it easy to keep the lashes safely for a long period of time.


Bad points
A bit expensive.
The company doesn't provide its own glue with the lashes but in my opinion it should be nice if they provided one with lashes.
They say that one has no need to apply mascara on the lashes but I think without applying mascara the lashes don't set properly with the natural lashes. A light coat of mascara mixes them well with natural lashes.
Finally....
Finally I'm happy with these lashes. They are so light that I barely feel them on my lids. They are very easy to wear and remove. The only problem with these lashes are that they are quite expensive but to see its quality the price is worth the money. The website and their customer service is really professional. I got my product very quickly in time. They ship worldwide.



I'm here with Velour Those Real Lashes

4/5

Recommendation
If you are a lover of mink lashes, you should try these lashes because mink lashes are not easily available and are very costly.


Aren't they looking so natural?

You can purchased Velour Lashes from their website.

Online shopping becomes even better with Violetbag.com

Nowadays, with the advancement of technology, online shopping has started becoming a common trend in India as well. Many stores have come up which have reliable services & fast shipping.

I’m very happy that India has another online store. Nowadays, when Indian customers have started to love shopping online and in this situation it was quite essential for another trustworthy Indian online store to come up.Violet Bag is supposed to be one of such a store which can make our life easier. Just think what all has to be done when we decide to go for shopping, especially when we only want to buy some cosmetics, first get some time for shopping, get ready for going out, go to market or malls struggling with the uneven roads, traffic, pollution and weather, standing on counter after reaching the shop to get the sales girls attention and then choosing the products in a hurry because other are also in a wait…ohhh so irritating and difficult but now it can be done only with a ‘click’.


Violet Bag is an online store, Indian based which sells beauty and personal care products. This store has recently started & I have noticed that it has become popular so quickly. I have read about this store on many blogs so I thought of buying something from it, I had even selected some things which I wanted to order. Luckily at the time I received a mail from Violet Bag, who offered me to tryout some products from their store!!

Some words about the Voilet bag.com

In the mirror of my own experience

The name ‘Violet Bag' is something different. something that is really noticeable & one cannot forget it easily. When I opened the website and selected my things, I noticed that shopping here is very easy. The website is quite attractive & easy to browse through, just click, Add To Bag, Review & Order, Pay and Done! You can get all the information about the product which you choose, really very effortless!










Anyways I ordered my things and got a mail in my inbox about the conformation of my order placed. Next day I got a mail about the all details of shipping my orders. My stuff from the VioletBag.com reached me recently. They delivered the products within 2-3 days of placing the order, which from a customer’s viewpoint is a hallmark of a serious seller. I was excited to see the violet color box, it really made me happy.Most of the online products arrive in dull brown boxes this this time it was something different.

 
I opened the box very excitedly and inside the box I saw that each product was neatly wrapped with in bubblewraps to avoid any breakage during ferrying. Besides,  the bag was filled with thermocol cubes so that bottles don’t mingle which ensured safe carriage environment. 

I ordered the following products:

VLCC Skin Defense Cold Cream
Maybelline Colorsensational lipstick in Golden Brown
Maybelline lip liners (2)
Garnier Color Naturals


Good Points
Very easy to place the order.
Great discounts & deals on most of the products.
Punctual delivery of products ( My shipment reached within 3 days of placing the order )
All cosmetic, body care, skin care needs for both men n women under one portal.
All products expiry date checked and usable.
Strong and safe packaging of courier to avoid any damage during shipment.
COD option available too.

Bad points
The only bad point that i noticed is that they don't have a very wide range of cosmetic brands but I hope they increase the number of brands in the future.

Finally…
Finally I’m highly impressed with this store and very happy that I have got a place where shopping is so easy & reliable too. Most of the drugstore brands are available here which girls & women usually require.


So girls, go get your stuff from this exciting online store at lovely prices!!!!

Disclaimer- I was provided with a code to shop for free but my opinions are absolutely honest

Give your face a rosy { Gulabi } look-Rouge Bunny Rouge Love Of Roses Original Skin Blush-Review , Swatches & Photos



  
If you asked me about of my some favorite brands the one name will be definitely of Rouge Bunny Rouge. All products which I have used till now have proved great. I'm not only fan of their products, I noticed after my first review of RBR that in India it's a very popular brand among the Indians. Although it's not available in India but nowadays, Indian customers have become very smart and choosy in purchasing something especially the ladies in their cosmetics products. Anyways, I'm feeling proud to write another review of this brand. This time it's a blush from RBR which is called For The Love Of Roses! What a beautiful name!!!!Isn't it?

Rouge Bunny Rouge Love Of Roses Original Skin Blush:
Florita

 Most natural, rich raspberry red with an illuminating radiance - It glides onto the skin imparting a warm rosy glow and is best suited for medium or olive skin tones


What RBR says...

Original Skin Blush blends with a sheer, melting touch for a naturally luminous silky glow. A medley of active ingredients, including Uhaloa from Hawaii, (also known as Velvet-leaf) and modern technologies impart a long term brightening effect. Indian Gooseberry Extract stands guard against free radicals. Sheer pearls amplify the creamy soft touch and ensure a limpid glow. Innovative powders entwine with your skin to preserve perfection all day long. Result is 'your skin but better' effect; you’ll wonder how you blushed before.

TALC, ALUMINUM STARCH OCTENYLSUCCINTE, MICA, MYRYSTYL TRISILOXANE, C26-54 ALKYL TETRADECYL DIMETHICONE, LAURYL LACTATE, DIMETHICINE, GLYCINE SOJA OIL, ZINC STERATE, OCTYLDODECYL STEAROYL STERATE, HYDROGENATED POLYDECENE TRIMETHYLOLPROPANE TRIISOSTEARATE, CHLORPHENESIN, OCTYLDODECANOL, POTASSIUM SORBATE, TETRASODIUM EDTA, PHYLLANTHUS EMBLICA EKTRACT, PHENOXYETHANOL, AQUA, LAURYL METHACRYLATE/GLYCOL DIMETHACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, DICAPRYLIETHER, SODIUM GLUCONATE, ALGAE, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM CITRATE, WALTHERIA INDICA, FERULIC ACID, POLYGLYCERYL-2 DIPOLYHYDROXYSTEARATE; (+/-): CI 7789l, C 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, CI 77007, CI 77510, CI 75470, CI 15850, CI 73360, CI 19149, CI 42090

Packaging
Like all products of RBR, the packaging of this blush is adorable. It comes in a black packaging with full of beautiful white flowers at one side and the RBR hologram other side. But what's inside the box?
Wait! Inside the black box, we find a round shining black compact case with white pretty flowers on the top. When we open the round box, we find a shining mirror, Florita blush in the pan and.......and again some flowers, now on the top of Blush! Hey guys, I'm really impressed with this packaging!





Shade
The shade called FLORITA is a rosy red shade which gives a rosy effect of the cheeks. The shade really remind me of original roses.



Texture
The texture is smooth and buttery. Blends on the skin like silk. It's so velvety on the skin you will love to apply it again and again. It's so light weight that after blending the shade looks a part of your skin.
 
Shade and pigmentation
I'll describe this shade as a rosy pink one. If you have seen the original rose, the original shade of a pink rose which has usually compared to the gorgeous flushes cheeks of a beautiful girl. This shade can give the same color of your cheeks. Only one touch of your brush will be enough to find the right color as the pigmentation is incredible. Don't dare to apply two or three swipes on your face, you may look like a colorful clown.



Lasting power
I'm impressed by the lasting power of this blush. It can last on your face about 7 to 8 hours easily. I can't be sure about more because I tested it only about 7 to 8 hours on Eid . Maybe it can last even more in winter. In summer It would last about 5 to 6 hour on my skin so the staying power is amazing.

 In the mirror of my own experience
To be honest I'm highly impressed about RBR products so when I opened it, the elegant packaging made my expectations even high but do you know what happened after using it? 
When I applied it on my face and blended it, that experience was really dreamy. The texture and pigmentation all are superb. But when I saw my face after giving final touch of my makeup, I honestly realized that this blush is even more impressive than my expectations. I had applied it at the Eid and all my ladies guests noticed my blush again and again. No doubt that it'll be one of my most favorite blush and I'll want to apply it many many times.
swatch

blended


Good points
Superb packaging.
The shade is really like that of a original rose.
The texture is so silky and smooth. The blush is build able.
It gives a beautiful rosy pink effect to my cheeks after applying.
It brightens up my face much more and in a surprisingly natural way as compared to some warmer pinks.

The lasting power is very strong. It can last on my face even about a whole day.
You get everything in this blush which you would wish from an ideal blush.

Bad points
I wished it was less expensive but I'm not really complaining because it worth the money.
I too wished it was available in India but I'm satisfied they ship worldwide and online shopping has become quite easy these days.

Finally....
What can I say now, I'm very very impressed about the quality. I have applied it many times after Eid and every time it made me feel more happy. Whenever I went using it on my face my friends, cousins and sisters appreciated my blush so it's the blush to which I'll want to use many times. I really want to try more shades and It'll be the first priority of my future shopping.

Rating
5/5
 
Recommendation
I'll love to recommend it to my readers and friends but I also want to know your view about this great product. I'm sure your opinion is not much different from me. So what do you think friends, grab this amazing blush for making your Christmas more special.

Lotus Herbals Botanical Lipgloss- Review, Swatches & LOTD

I have reviewed the Lotus Herbal's Moist Petal Lipstick and I'm happy to see that my readers are very excited to try those lip colors. I have got many mails from my readers in which they wanted me to do the reviews of other shades of this brand. I'll definitely do it soon but firstly I'm going to introduce Lotus Herbal Lotus Herbals Seduction Botanical Tinted Lip Gloss first time on COB. I hope my readers would like it too.


 Lotus Herbals Seduction Botanical Tinted Lip Gloss

Lotus Herbals Seduction Botanical Tinted Lip Gloss in Lychee Squash is one of the shade Lotus Herbal had launched recently especially for festival seasons. Lychee Squash is a light pink shade with lot of shimmer particles in it. 


 What Lotus Herbal says...

A unique, high gloss lip care formulation with a non-sticky feel. Enriched with botanical extracts of Grapes and Jojoba that make lips soft and supple for long.

Weight
 5ml


Price

Rs.225


Ingredients

Jojoba helps promote healing of the skin. – Its antimicrobial properties in addition to the chemical composition that closely resembles skin’s natural sebum, makes it easy to absorb and non-allergic even in the most sensitive individuals.

Shade
They had added five new exciting shade in their glosses range. You can check out the names of the new shades-  HERE


In the mirror of my own experience


I applied it on the festival night and I noticed that it has a lot of shimmers in it. Lotus Herbal had launched these shades for festivals so I think most of girls like wearing shimmery lip glosses on these occasions so I can't complain regarding this. I applied it with my white and pink outfit and believe me it was looking perfect with this color outfit. Usually I like lipstick but sometimes lip glosses change our whole look and personality and give a completely new color in life so in my opinion we should change our taste sometimes. As far as the quality is concerned, I love its quality. It's very moisturising and not sticky at all. Gets applied very smoothly because the texture is silky and moisturising. The shade is light pink with lots of shimmers which give a beautiful girly effect especially on special occasions. It lasts for about 5 hours easily on my lips without eating and smacking.The only down side of it, it leaves the shimmers even after removing the gloss. It seems that you have wiped the gloss completely but if you see you lips .... you find many shimmer particles still on your lips which looks quite irritating. 


Good points
Good packaging.
Very moisturizing
Apply very smoothly on the lips. 
The texture is not sticky.
Gives a beautiful effect after applying on the lips.
The shimmers contained in it makes it special for festivals.
They have a good range of beautiful colors.
Love its lasting power.
It contains some natural ingredients and is a herbal product.
The price is really reasonable.

2 swipes


Bad points
It leaves lot shimmer particles on the lips even after removing. You should have a good cleanser for removing these particles.
Not for daily use due to the shimmers.
The full ingredients list is not available on their website too.

Finally....


Finally I love this lip gloss and want to try their other shades too. They have many shades shimmery & non shimmery and I'll love to try out the non shimmery glosses. The quality is great. It has everything we can expect from a perfect lip gloss. So I really love it.

Ratings
4/5

Recommendation
If you like something different from daily using glosses on these festivals, you should definitely try this gloss. If you don't mind shimmers on your lips, this one is perfect for you.

Availability
You can purchase these lip glosses the cosmetics stores where Lotus Herbal's makeup range is available and from their website too.
