NYX Intense Butter Gloss Review and swatches:

Hello my lovelies! Today I will be reviewing NYX Intense Butter Gloss which is the new formulated version of NYX butter gloss. It comes in 12 beautiful shades for Spring 2015. I picked up the shade "Apple crisp" which is a bold, bright, medium red with cool, blue undertones and a creamy, glossy finish.
It had rich, opaque color coverage that applied smoothly and evenly without pulling into lip lines. To me the texture of the NYX intense butter gloss felt absolutely divine.
Compared to the earlier version they are thicker, more pigmented, and they actually lack the beautifully buttery texture of the originals. I was a little disappointed they didn’t have that same light buttery texture of the originals.

Over some time, they tend to develop a bit tackiness and lasts 4 hours on me. It transfers a bit and I would say they are not like very comfortable to wear. I mean they felt a bit heavy and thick glossy on me.:((
I liked the earlier version more because it was light and was comfortable to wear. On that note I will say these are nicely formulated in their own right as well and have a longer wear, more pigmentation, and a texture that’s very, very nice but just NOT as nice as the original formula. Sorry, I just want to stress that they feel so much different compared to the original Butter Gloss texture. One more thing, since these glosses are super pigmented just beware of the potential smearing of the color. 
To sum it all up, I would say if you are looking for buttery gloss which is very pigmented and lasts on for long then you can definitely consider buying these. As for me, I will try some other shade and then review it on my blog soon, so stay tuned!!!
Till then take care.

Jennifer Lopez’s Luscious Blowout & Smokey Eye For L’Oreal: Get Her Look

Hello, hottie! JLo, who always looks amazing, is telling beauty lovers to ‘go bronde’ (brunette and blonde) in a hot new L’Oreal campaign. Find out how to get the look here!

Jennifer just keeps getting hotter and hotter! The 45-year-old singer looks breathtaking in a new L’Oreal ad campaign, in which she’s promoting a brunette-blonde hybrid hair color. JLo, who has sported the look for years, is the new face of #GoBronde!
Another stunning look from Jennifer! With hair this sexy, who wouldn’t want to “go bronde”?
The new color campaign describes the Hollywood favorite bronde color as “sexier than a blonde, spicier than a brunette,” and it’s a great way to add dimension to brown hair without trying to look like the blonde that you’re not.

JLo’s Bronde Blowout: Get The Look

JLo’s hair looks unbelievable! While we’re pretty sure she had a team of L'oreal hairstylist and colorist helping to create this voluminous look, you can still get a vixen sleek blowout at home — all by yourself.
Try using L'oreal Sleek It Iron Straight Heat spray before your next at-home styling session. Spray it on damp hair before blow drying with a round brush, or use it on dry hair before heat styling. The lightweight formula blocks humidity and frizz for JLo level sleekness while protecting your hair for smooth styles with lots of body!
We also can’t ignore Jennifer’s flawless makeup look. She was as gorgeous as ever with a deep bronzy smokey eye, and the dark colors of her eyeshadow were balanced out by a pretty, subtle pink lip.
We are obsessed with Jennifer’s new campaign, and the beautiful bronde hair trend isn’t going anywhere! What do you think of her look??

Tips for guaranteed SUCCESS in anything you do:

Hello my beautiful people! It is a lovely morning as I write this post.. Today I decided to share some of my secrets for success which if you follow will surely guarantee success in all your endeavors. I have held some seminars and lectures on 'How to motivate yourself to succeed' and over the years i have developed some strategies that have worked for me as well as my friends and co workers in achieving their goals.  But before we discuss the strategies to succeed , I want you to firmly believe that your performance is not only based on your ability but also your motivation. And here in this post I will be mainly concentrating on sharing with you some of my best motivational strategies. So without any further delay, let us begin!

The first thing which we need to do is change our approach when we are struggling to achieve something. Here I am reminded of Sir Isaac Newton's First Law of motion which says: Body at rest tend to remain at rest : some people simply are not motivated enough to take any action. So the question now is how to get started? For starters, you can simply set a deadline like I am not going to sleep or rest till I find a job or for students " finish this chapter"! But setting a deadline is a short term strategy and if you are constantly under pressure it can soon become demotivating and that is not what we want right? There can be some reasons as to why you are not taking any action and waiting for things to happen on their own. These reasons can be A)Habit B) No means at hand C) perceived cost is too high D) You may be lying to yourself about what you want!!!!

Who said you have to be the best in everything you do? Not being athletic enough or smart enough or artistic enough or talented enough, doesn't mean you can't play a sport or make the honor roll or take amazing/artistic photos or sing/dance. And if you believe you can't do something because you aren't good enough, well then you believe in nonsense, which is holding you back!  Let me share my little story with you guys. There is a prestigious exam in my country clearing which is no joke! A lot of fellows from my class did not clear it after so many attempts! But I was determined to succeed and I not only cracked it but also got a very good rank. It is not that I am super intelligent or something but I had this strong notion in my head that things will happen the way I want them to happen. Our brain begins to believe what we want it to believe. Had I thought I cant do it just because other people failed, I would have surely failed. Rather I thought I would surely succeed no matter what and I didn't even once think about my failure. This led me to success and there was no looking back. 

Another key concept with success is commitment. Commitment is absolutely necessary in order to achieve goals. You can say you will do something, but until you actually make a decision to commit to it and follow through with the relevant steps, you will most likely not see progress and achievement towards that desired outcome. 

Strategies to succeed:

 1. Visualize you success:
Think about your goal, how will you feel after achieving it? Who all will rejoice with you after your success? Trust your gut feeling when it says "You can do it:!

2. Create healthy competition with yourself:
One of my favorite approaches! If someone doesn't believe you can do it, then prove that person wrong. How? By showing them that you can achieve that goal, and even exceed that goal. Go after exceeding your expectations and the expectations of those who don't support you. Show yourself and them otherwise!  Repeat this mantra in your mind" I am going to step up and prove everyone wrong".

3. Don't forget to reward yourself along the way:
You should reward yourself along every little step you achieve towards your goal. This will keep you motivated. Have a theme song to get you psyched about the opportunity and the steps towards your goal! 

Having said all this it is not only visualization, theme song and the mantra alone which will make you succeed! You will need to follow through with the necessary actions to achieve your goal.So get up, get started! A whole new world of opportunities and success awaits you!!!!

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist perfume review:

Hello lovelies! I am back with yet another product review and this time it is a perfume which I absolutely adore. It is 'Donna Karan Cashmere mist'. I love trying different perfumes and I use them quite often. My favorites include Organza Givenchy and Estee Lauder Tuberose Gardenia. Last week my friend, coming from Canada gifted me this beautiful bottle of perfume. She thought I would really love it and bingo! She was right .. I loved it soooo much. "Lovely" was my first reaction! It is a rich gorgeous fragrance that is mild yet stays on for the whole day. 

I mean it is not overpowering in your face but is impactful and special. One word of caution though, if you are into fruity, bubblegummy, plastic scents the this one is surely not for you. This perfume says.... Caring , Tasteful , comforting, subtle and naturally beautiful. The dry down is fantastic! It has soon become my fav fragrance by far.
It is just warm and powdery and has a very nice feel good factor to it with a beautiful musky sandalwood that lasts all day. It is a timeless, ageless fragrance which is good for everyone! I am that sort of a person who will get headaches easily from strong overpowering fragrances! But this one to my surprise is so gentle that I will surely repurchase it! So if you are looking for a nice, powdery , floral scent with a lot of musky woody suede then this Cashmere Mist is definitely for you!  Have you tried it yet? Which one is your favorite perfume?

This show, as you all know has turned vegetarian this season and is hosted by the likes of Sanjeev Kapoor and chef Vikas Khanna.

Aamir who used to enjoy fish, meat, chicken and eggs has not only gone green but has also given up on milk and milk products. He took this decision after watching a video shown by his wife Kiran Rao which showed 15 of the most common diseases that can cause death and how vegetarian diet can help curing them. Aamir said that this video showed him a better way of life and therefore he turned vegan. If speculations are to be believed the Master Chef team will present him with a birthday cake on his birthday which falls on March 14. Not only Aamir, but his wife has also turned vegan. However their son eats whatever he wants but Amir believes that he will naturally lean towards a vegan diet when he grows up.

Honey Singh was at the police station for a couple of minutes and he reportedly refused to submit a voice sample to go with the one collected from the video. "We are now going to submit the panchnama before the court for further direction," The times of India quoted senior PI RD Nikam.

Honey Singh was at the peak of his career when he stopped making music all of a sudden.

But his wife Shalini Singh rubbishes all these reports saying that he was unwell and was advised complete bed rest by the doctors.

Lakme Eyeconic Black Vs Green kajal:

Hello ladies. In this post I will be reviewing Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in black and will be comparing it with the green counterpart and finally which on is better out of the two. Now to begin with, I love eyeliner , be it pencil, liquid or gel. My never ending love for eyeliners always take me on a hunt to search for the best eyeliner. Plus kajal is one such thing which I always wear, yes even at home on a lazy Sunday afternoon too! Lakme Eyeconic kajals are really super duper pigmented and one stroke is all it takes for the perfect look! 

These kajals come in a classic black pencil form and are very easy to use and carry. They are non messy and glide smoothly. Being highly pigmented a little of the product is used and one pencil finishes in 2-3 months. The best part is its staying capacity. It stays on for the whole day and even the next , I mean till the time you don't take it off intentionally it will remain there. 

I bought the green version because I wanted a change from the same old black look. Green also looks nice but for me personally not on the waterline though. You can use it on the upper eyelid for a pop of color. It smudges more often than black one and gives a tired look to your eyes. If you know what I mean... 
I love the classic black kajal and I have purchased it 6 times while I have still not finished the green one and don't intend to repurchase it either. As for me the Lakme Eyeconic Black is 9 on 10 whereas the Green is just 4 on 10. If you want a slight color on your lids and that too occasionally, you can consider purchasing it. For the black one I would say I lovvvveeee it and keep buying it again and again and You too should try it once!
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh together at a friend's wedding in Delhi:

Bollywood's most talked about couple -Deepika and Ranveer Singh are very busy with their shooting schedules, but both of them took some time off to attend the wedding of their close friend - Karan Kapadia and Nitya Mehra in New Delhi. Karan Kapadia is the director the very famous durex ad. The couple was seen having loads of fun at the wedding.

Deepika was seen is a gorgeous white net saree and a beautiful updo. Her makeup was subtle with a bold red lip color. She was accompanied by her sister - Ritika.
On the other hand, Ranveer looked stylish in a Fedora. He had his hand in a sling because of the latest injury on the sets of 'Bajirao Mastani'.
He took loads of selfies at the wedding and posted them on Twitter. Looks like Ranveer and Deepika had a fun and refreshing break from their work!

Kareena Kapoor aged 34 says there is no need to hide your age!

Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan says that she is proud to be 34 and feels that the key to aging gracefully lies in "letting the lines be" and not worrying about them. The Ra One actress feels that ageing is a natural and wonderful phenomena.  "I hate it when I look at somebody and know that they have tried to cover the lines," Kareena told IANS in an interview. 

Kareena finds men with lines on their face more appealing and intelligent. The same goes for women. According to her Maharani Gayatri Devi was very graceful and she aged with grey hair which looked very elegant. Kareena who is the daughter in law of timeless beauty Sharmila Tagore feels people should not try very hard to hide their age and laugh lines.
There’s a notion that “Never ask a woman her age”, but Kareena asks “What’s wrong in saying your age”.“I don’t want to be an 18-year-old or a 22-year-old girl. I am just done with that phase of my life. That is why I don’t even try to be 22,” added the actress.
“I’m 34 but I’m still endorsing an ice-cream, which people enjoy from an age of 6 to 60. That is an achievement in itself,” she said.

The beautiful and gorgeous Kareena feels that each brand an actor endorses reflects his personality. That is why she would never endorse meat, alcohol or cigarettes.  Talking about her filmy career Kareena is all set to leave for Punjab to shoot for her upcoming film 'Udtaa Punjab'. She says the milieu of the film is based on drug busting in Punjab and will leave “everyone shocked”. 

She would also be seen in Salman Khan's 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'.
