The Vibrant Birdie
Winters are so cozy and I find them one of the romantic seasons but when it comes to your skin they become dry and rough so to avoid this I have switched to bathandbodyworks Essentials Oil ‘Almond & Vanilla’ rich Olive oil body cream which nourishes my skin by making it smooth, supple and silky. My body usually becomes dry/ rough during winters and have to reapply lotion in every 4-5 hours and for hand in every 2 hours to keep skin soft and supple.
Hydrates skin for 24 hours of continuous moisture.

My experience with this product-
The product comes in thick plastic tube with an interesting color combination making it enough attractive to catch my eye sight. The tubes comes in brown color with the name mentioned in white and green combination and green flip cap on top. The flip is sturdy enough to keep the cream safe without damaging other products in bag which makes it easier to carry on a trip.
I liked the texture of cream, its buttery, smooth and soft. Consistency is pretty thick. The cream melts on my skin and spreads evenly. It has a beautiful fragrance I loved it but few may find it strong. The staying power is awesome and big thumbs up from my side. If you are new to this cream expect first few days 9-10 hours of hydration and once you apply daily then it keeps your skin hydrated all day. Trust me peeps, I didn’t feel any kind of itching on my skin, however I started loving my skin more as the difference is noticeable. My skin is healthier, smoother, softer, beautifully moisturized and supple. Its pocket friendly.
Overall, I loved this body cream as it has improved my skin texture making it more healthier, softer, smoother & supple. This is one of my fav body cream when it comes to skin nourishment/ hydration in winters and in summer I apply on alternate basis.
⦁ Hydrates & moisturize skin
⦁ Skin is more soft, silky and supple
⦁ Improves skin texture and make it healthier.
⦁ staying power is all day long
⦁ Pocket friendly
⦁ Cream does not survive in humidity and makes skin look bit oily.

My experience with this product-
The product packaging comes in a blue cardboard box with entire details printed on it in black with a golden logo has been placed on its top. The ingredient list and all other product details have been mentioned on the box. The Product comes in a sturdy brown glass bottle with golden cap and with golden prints on it which really make bottle look stunning. When I opened the cap I was happy to see the golden pump on the bottle which made it easy to use and so hygienic as I don’t have to dip my fingers in the product. As its is small in size counts for travel friendly.
The texture is creamy, light weight and off white in color. The consistency of product is runny more of like watery. All I need is a peas size amount for both the eyes. Its grease proof, non sticky and fragrance free. I usually apply the cream after doing an entire CTM routine. I massage the cream on to my eyes and the best part I liked about it is, it gets absorb quickly into the skin. I started using this product every night and within 1 week I started noticing slight changes near my eye area. After 1 month of use I was happy to see the result as it has really worked and done miracles on the areas like puffiness, wrinkles, fine lines and at the same time it has hydrated my undereye area as well. I got bit disappointed when it didn’t do any wonders on my dark circles as I expected it to work even after paying a good price. One more thing I noticed is that after the cream application, within 5 min it put me to sleep which is like awesome as I find very hard to get back to sleep.
Overall, I liked this product very much inspite of being pricey. It has done tremendous work on undereye area by nourishing and improving the skin texture making it supple and hydrated and in addition to this, it has also helped on reducing puffiness, wrinkles, fine lines, aging and making my eyes look fresh. Don’t keep much hopes that it will work on dark circles as you will be having huge disappointment. The product is pricey but it is worth giving a try.
⦁ Luxurious packaging
⦁ Lightweight and watery in texture
⦁ absorbs faster.
⦁ Suitable for most skin types
⦁ Fragrance-free and grease free
⦁ Good moisturizer & hydrator
⦁ Reduces puffiness, wrinkles, fine lines and dullness
⦁ Did not work on dark circles.
Marhaba Birdies, Happy Weekend 🙂
The colourpop has launched “It’s a princess thing” palette inspired by all the princess of Disney back in year 2018. Well the name Disney has made me to do the purchases. So lets get to the point and explore more about this palette.
Inspired by the iconic Disney princesses this palette is a dream come true. This 15 pan palette was created in collaboration with Disney and features soft romantic shadows perfect for any look, from daytime sing-a-long glam or a magical ballroom look. This item is limited edition.
My experience with this product-
The palette is packed in a golden cardboard box with 6 Disney Princesses picture on the front cover which is really impressing take you down to the memory lane. The palette has 6 beautiful princess printed on it on black background with golden outline which really make it a standout and also you can find all the name of color shade inside the palette at its back so its very handy. On the opening of the palette you can witness signature of the princes and the shades on the other side with a magnetic closer. I wish they have provided a mirror instead of signature as that would be more handy and travel friendly. Well due to its light weight and sleek size it does qualifies for travel vanity box.
The palette shades are all about to neutrals to dark with few mattes, metallic and more of shimmer. I loved the formula of this shades as they are soft, smooth and easily blendable. The neturals need more work than the darker ones as they are beautifully pigmented. I have witnessed the fallout while using their glitter shades plus as the few colors are off its very difficult to create different eyelooks. Only 4 matte shades (3 light and 1 dark) which is too less plus the color payoff is not great except shade Abu on brown skin. The staying power is amazing and shade does not crease or fade.
Lets dive into the palette-
Chip- a matte soft beige nude with matte finish. The texture is very good with perfect pigmentation may look great with fair skin tone.
Juju- a light pink shade with matte finish. The color payoff is not that great but can help transforming the shade.
Grumpy- It is a medium dusty peach color with matte finish. The color payoff is not that great but can transform the shade.
Triton- It is a medium brown biscuit shade with semi matte finish. The texture is very good with intense pigmentation.
Abu- It’s a brick brown shade with matte finish having very good texture and intense pigmentation.
Prince Charming- an off white metallic pearl shade. The texture is little powder but the pigmentation is very good.
Ray- a metallic champagne gold with metallic finish. The texture and pigmentation is amazing. Also can be used as highlighter.
Fairy Godmother- a metallic pink coral shimmery shade with good texture and intense pigmentation.
One Kiss- a metallic bright gold shimmery shade. The texture is little crumpling with good pigmentation.
Thingamabob- a vibrant metallic silver and is a beautiful shimmery silver color with intense pigmentation and creamy texture.
Enchanted Rose- a rich metallic rose. It is dark copper color with shimmer finish, good texture and intense pigmentation.
Poison Apple- a metallic purple shade. The texture is very good with intense pigmentation.
Magic Carpet- a dark plum color with very good pigmentation but have little powdery texture.
Beast- a deep warm brown topped with gold glitter. It is dark brown shade with intense pigmentation and very good texture.
Midnight Curfew- black sprinkled with silver glitter. It is intensely pigmented black shade with good texture.
Overall, the pigmentation and texture is very good with only couple of shades with light fallout. The color selection is beautiful and looks like more of a festive palette. The shimery and metallic shades are highly pigment but matte ones are disappointing except shade abu. Not an extra ordinary palette so if you don’t have it you have not missed anything major. Custom charges are something you have to bear a good price and it completely depends on the country where you live. You can find good range of palette in drugstore with same price range.
– Sleek and travel friendly
– Disney themed
– Staying power is nice plus the shade blends smoothly and evenly.
– Friendly budgeted palette.
– Light in weight and travel friendly.
– Being a neutral tone palette, few shades can be worn on daily basis.
– Shades does not crease or fade.
– Limited edition
– No mirror
– Hefty shipping and customs charge
Inspired by Taylor Swift, her signature red lips and smash hit about girl-on-girl bad blood, the lipstick is probably the most famous of Urban Decay’s latest lipstick range. My first red lipstick from Urban Decay brand which is my first luxurious brand. So let’s discover this product further 🙂
Available in an array of indulgent finishes and lipstick colors that range from bold brights to dark hues to versatile neutrals, the possibilities are endless. Each shade applies smoothly (without dragging or skipping), hugs lips, and feels ultra-comfortable. Plus, our signature Vice formula gives the lipstick its super-creamy texture, pigmented payoff, and superior color dispersion.
We’ve also packed every shade with nourishing ingredients. A butter blend comforts, hydrates, and enhances, leaving lips soft and conditioned, and never dry. Aloe vera, jojoba, avocado, and babassu oils nourish and soften lips. Illipe butter, derived from Malaysian illipe trees, provides long-lasting moisture, while the vitamins C and E deliver a hit of antioxidants.
How to use-
⦁ For ultra-long wear and to prevent feathering, pair these shades of Vice Lipstick with matching shades of 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.
⦁ To hold color in place, correct mistakes, and even fill in lines, use our Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil.
⦁ Layer more than one shade of Vice Lipstick to create custom lip colors.

My experience with this product-
The Ultimate Pair lip duo comes with matching lip pencil and lipstick. I got my hand on this set during sale and I believe they come around the holiday season, otherwise I hardly see them in offer in off days. The lipstick comes in a black cardboard box with picture of the product inside mentioned in a golden letters. The lipliner is in the color of the product with silver cap on the top. The silver print on the pencil and at the bottom really make it look stunning. The lipstick comes in a shiny gold metallic bullet with golden bottom. It’s a chic design, elegant yet somewhat luxurious in looks. I love brand which give importance to small details.
The texture of lip pencil is creamy that glides smoothly on my lips like a dream without smudging. It does has matte finish which latter makes lip dry. The texture of lipstick is creamy and smooth which glides smoothly on lips without hurting it as if it is hugging the lips. It also keeps my lips nicely moisturized, thanks to its nourishing blend of jojoba oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter and shea butter.
The colour pay off is awesome and can be seen in a single swipe and to look more even 2 swipes are required, which is even claimed by brand. You can build the intensity of color depending on the look. Though it claim as comfort matte but it do has a satin finish. Color of lip pencil and lipstick match perfectly, but are not exactly the same in tone. Lip pencil is slightly warmer toned while the lipstick is darker in shade.
The Lip pencil stays for approx 7-8 hours due to its matte formula but lipstick stays hardly for 4-5 hours and then it start disappearing leaving the stain behind which calls for touchup. I felt heaviness on my lips after 2 swipe over lip pencil, as if someone has put enough weight on my delicate lips 😀 Lip pencil can be a bit drying on lips so make sure you moisturize before the application. The best part is removal was easy and did not make my lips bleed neither my skin peeled.
Overall, The ultimate pair set is good as it comes with the lip pencil and lipstick. It would have cost heavier if taken separately. I would recommend you guys to buy this product in an offer so you can grab good deal. Lip pencil is proper matte, has really nice smooth formula and is good for outlining. Lipstick has lovely creamy formula with a sheen to it and can be build up for a more opaque look. Considering the texture, staying power, shade, pigmentation, vegan, cruelty free makes this lipstick stand out. As I said, I am a firm believer that you can find good quality lip products in drugstore range as well. It’s up to you what you want to spend money on.
⦁ Blends/ Glides smoothly on lips
⦁ Creamy and smooth formula
⦁ Does not hurt lips while applying lip pencil or lipstick
⦁ Amazing color payoff in single swipe
⦁ No bleeding lips or witnessed peeled skin after removal of lipstick
⦁ Amazing staying power with lip pencil
⦁ Travel Friendly
⦁ Lip pencil do dry out lips
⦁ Lipstick staying power is short.

My experience with this product-
The packaging of kohl pencil comes in a bright purple color with white text on it which makes it too attractive to be held in hand. As I grabbed this is in offer I also received free sharpener with this which was having its own protection case in transparent color. The best part I liked about the sharpener is that they have provided red plastic stick to clean after use which is quite impressive. You see small details do matter. Having said that it also add to my travel friendly cosmetic bag plus its very sturdy and sleek. They have mentioned expiry date at the bottom of pencil.
The texture is very smooth and creamy on eyes. It glides smoothly and if you ever feel the tip of pencil is hard then you can always swipe twice thrice on hand to make the tip warm before use. One swipe gives you enough pigment and you can build the intensity as per the desired look. The consistency of kohl is jet black and thick. It takes just few second to set and then enjoy the smudge free eyes. While using this pencil I have not witnessed any burning sensation or itchiness in my eyes.
It’s dermatology and ophthalmology tested and approved which is good for sensitive eyes plus make us more comfortable to use this product. As it’s an Indian brand plus preservative free, free from harsh chemicals (I wish they disclose full ingredients list) and the 100% vegan formula has already won my heart. Its been one of the darkest shade I have came across. Most important thing is not tested on animals.
The staying power is amazing. Being my eyes sensitive and watery hardly any Kajal makes to max 2 hours and after which it gets washed out from the eyes but this Kajal stayed for 5 hours and then slowly started smudging down so I won’t agree to claim that it’s smudge proof but staying power is great compared to other products in market. This super pigmented kajal totally changes your look in a good way and would definitely make people notice it. The Kajal is water proof and you need a good eye remover to clean the Kajal or it can carry till next day on your under eyes area. This is my favourite kajal and the best one I have used so far!
Overall, Considering the price and quality they have provided, I would say every penny justifies it. The texture, consistency, smoothness, colour payoff, staying power are amazing. rarely you come across such brand which justified every penny you spend on their product. I highly recommend this pencil.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow | Shade Twitterpated | Here we go again | Special Delivery | Review & Swatches
I hope you all are doing great.
Today I will be talking about Colourpop cosmetic brand “super shock shadows” which made huge news in year 2018 and took the entire beauty blogging indusrty running behind them. ColourPop is a great affordable makeup brand and it’s famous for creme-powder eyeshadow formulations.
I got this product during Black Friday Sale for $5/- each. I grabbed 3 super shock shadows in shade Twitterpated, Here we go Again and Special Delivery. Unfortunately this shades were limited and now cant be seen on their website.
Our revolutionary creme-powder eyeshadow, famous for its unique bouncy texture, delivers bold colour & fine glitter in one swipe without creasing, fading or fallout.
CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, DIMETHICONE, SYNTHETIC FLUORPHLOGOPITE, TRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE, ISODODECANE, BORON NITRIDE, C30-45 ALKYL CETEARYL DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, SILICA, DIMETHICONE/VINYLTRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE CROSSPOLYMER, PHENOXYETHANOL, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE, GLYCINE SOJA (SOYBEAN) OIL, TIN OXIDE, MANGIFERA INDICA (MANGO) SEED BUTTER, PROPYLENE CARBONATE, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, CUCUMIS SATIVUS (CUCUMBER) FRUIT EXTRACT, IRON OXIDES (CI 77491), MICA (CI 77019), TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891).
My experience with this product-
The packaging is very simple and covered the shadows with thin cardboard box. The shadow comes in a white round shape pot with a transulant plastic top which make easier to identify your favourite eyeshadow shade. As this is a cream based formulae the lid need to be screwed up tightly or else it will end up drying the shade. Tip- If they end up drying, add couple of drops of Inglot’s Duraline to rehydrate them.
The texture is creamy, buttery and so soft that they leave behind your finger prints on the shade (lols). when I placed the finger on shadows for the first time they felt like a mouse but immediately dry down to a powder finish once applied to the skin.
Consistency of shadow is amazing with a zero fallout.Staying power is supereb as once applued stays for 10 hours with primer on and 7 hours without primer after which it slightly starts fading. The shades does not crease even in humid climate. I have carried this shades for my baby shower function and trust me it stayed for over 10 hours with absolutely no fading, creasing or smudging. Its easily blendable and the colour payoff is amazing when applied with finger tip. Being on a lower price range they did not compromised on quality. its easily wipes off and does not burn or irritate eyes.
1. Shade “Here we go Again” is a warm gold glitter shade. The pigmentation is damn good and can be seen in the first swipe. you can build the intensity based on the look you need. Dupe- in harmony
2. Shade “Twitterpated” is a glittery pink warm shade. This shade is good for highlighting inner corners of eyes and brow bone plus it can be patted on any other dark shadow which is a game changer. Dupe- set to stun
3. Shade ” Special Delivery” is a glittery green shade with gold flakes in it. This shade is good for highlighting inner corners of eyes and brow bone plus it can be patted on any other dark shadow which is a game changer. Dupe- mint 4 U
Overall, I am happy with the products as it is pocket friendly, travel friendly and good quality. The shade differs from the shade shown on their websites so better to go with bestseller or editor choice or award shades just to be on a safer side. I highly recommend them.

Marhaba my birdies,
How’s the weekend coming along? Well I am coming up with one more adventurous blog which I had done last year. As this was a surprise planned by my partner, he just told me to wear something sporty as we are going for adventure. As always, the “little me” got super excited which made me to stay awake whole night. To reach on their given time, we started from home at 3.00 in morning as we had to reach destination point by 3. 45 Am. They are quite strict with their timing and hardly wait for anyone. We reached there and drum rolls please, I jumped with curiosity when got to know that we are doing Hot Air Balloon ride. Controlling my excitement level, we further entered mini bus where they gave us the pass to board the flight.
It was 5:00 Am and we reached the place where they gave us brief about the ride with do’s and don’ts. The most mesmerizing scene was to witness, the way they fill hot air balloon.
There is a particular temperature in the atmosphere in which these hot air balloons takes off and within 5 mins you are in the air 😀 :D.
We literally had to run and climb the basket which was fun. As we were gradually going up the beauty and sunrise was captivating.
If anyone likes the raw beauty will relish this ride as you can enjoy endless dessert dunes with different species.
We were 4000ft. high and the scene were eye-catching. The dessert gave illusion as water during sunrise which was amazing and in addition to this the cool breeze made the mood.
We were soon about to land, and the instructor had made it more adventurous by making the basket fall in the sand. We took some pics in the dessert, had some breakfast and left the place in an hour. All over it was a delightful experience. I hope you enjoyed the ride with me and will be back soon with another post, till then take care birdies.
Hey my birdies,
I hope you all are doing well. Winters have hit and will be getting colder in coming days. We take out our warm cloths, crack heal cream, body lotions, face cream everything but sometimes we become little careless on lips and don’t take much care until it start becoming badly chapped and dry. So before it is late we need to take precaution to preserve the moist lips by applying good lip balm every day.
Price- INR. 135 for 4gm
Lotus Herbals Velvety Rose Lip Therapy claims-
The Lip Therapy highly active moisturizing formula with high concentration of Shea and Kokum butter, helps to repair dry, cracked and chapped lips and protects them from the drying effect of cold, dry winds of winter, making them looks look healthier and smoother.
Ingredient Used- Shea Butter, Kokum Butter and Velvety Rose extracts.
My personal experience with Lotus Herbals Velvety Rose Lip Therapy-
The product comes in a long cream color stick with a same color cap on it which has a beautiful roses printed on cap. The packaging is really very attractive, classy and elegant. It is a roll on stick which let the product comes out as per your wish. I really like stick style packaging rather than a tub one as it is more hygienic and product is directly applied on lips rather than dipping fingers in a lip balm tub. It is basically a LIP Therapy made especially for winter use as the ingredients used in it are shea and Kokum butter which has more moisturizing properties.
The texture of the Lip balm is very smooth, creamy and velvety as they have mentioned on the cap. It is like a petroleum jelly or wax converted into stick form. When you open the cap you can see baby pink color of lip balm stick which is more appealing. When you take the lip balm nearer to your lips for application you will be satisfied with the rose fragrance which is mild and pleasing. The plus point of this lip balm is it ha SPF 15 which protects from sunrays and darker or patchy lips.
Trust me this product has done wonders on my lips. I usually have a habit of biting my lips so it often get dry but this lip balm has healed my dry chapped lips and made it moist. It has also improved my lip texture and quality. I have also noticed that by continuous use my lips have turned more pinkish and healthier. From last 15 days I am using this product and testing it whether it stands on what it claims. I am happy that yes they have proved their product on what they claims.
Overall, I liked the product very much and I recommend it to all. Also it is pocket friendly and within my budget. This product is especially made for winter season so it will be more effective during that duration. But if you are facing dry, chapped or darker lips problem, this product will help you in all criteria. For quick effect apply this product on lips in night before sleep you can see miracles happened very next day.

TVB Rating: 4.3/5
Pregnancy is such an amazing and blessed phase to feel the miracle of god but at the same time it can be ruined if your surroundings is filled with toxic people and starts body shaming or bullying you..
Well during my pregnancy I was very mobile. I was working and actively attending certain cultural events. As my weeks were going up, people around me started giving their comments like – you are looking so dull & tired; you have got panda eyes, your tummy is looking so weird, that’s such a huge tummy (staring at my tummy made me feel so weird), you have put on so much of weight, you got swelling on your face / legs / body, why you eat so much etc. (Annoyed!!)
I mean the entire process of pregnancy is tiring plus it changes your body and especially you from within. Can’t we just be kind and really appreciate the pregnant women and understand the sensitivity of the phase she is going through. There are many challenges a lady has to go through during her pregnancy phase like – she has to pee often in night which leads to sleepless nights tending to get her panda eyes, every pregnancy is different and so is the tummy. There is nothing weird in that but the most imp is fetus inside should be healthy, the increase in baby weight leads to swelling on face/body, change in the hormones, whenever the fetus demands food, you have to eat and as they say for every woman pregnancy is different and what not. I mean can we just pause ourself for a minute and think in which direction are we heading. Being a women let’s start adjusting each other’s crown rather than pulling or bullying them.
Instead, can we just start using sentences like you are looking pretty, we are proud you made to office, do you have some kind of cravings, we’ll order your fav food, let’s go out for a stroll, you need to relax. etc. Just showing a little affection and care changes the entire equation for a pregnant woman. She feels more confident and happy.
In my entire pregnancy phase, I came across both kindda ppl who cared for me and who tortured me especially in my work environment which really made me upset. But I am thankful to those set of ppl who have always lifted me up, cheered my mood; especially my husband who took care of me and spoilt me by his pampering.
I hope, next time whenever you will come across any pregnant women, you will be more positive and affirmative in your statements. Till then love yourself and take care.

My Experience with White Seed Brightening Toner Review-
This beauty comes in white tall bottle with pump dispenser on top protected with small plastic cap. The Outer box contains all the details about the product. The packaging is very elegant. I wish it was a travel friendly product as cap does not fit properly which can make product spill making your stuff bit dirty.
The texture is slightly sticky and creamy with opaque color to it plus the consistency of product is thicker than other product available in the market. The best part about dispenser is we have full control on the product and the con is that bottle is not transparent which make difficult to trace till when product will last long. You can also experience mild fragrance while pumping the product on the cotton pad. I like using toner with the help of cotton pad with a light handed on face moving in circular notion covering face and neck. I was stunned to see that even after deep cleansing and face wash there were some traces of dirt and impurities which came out on cotton pad that magic toner does on your face. I have used this product almost for 2-3 months especially in night and next morning trust me you will see a very nice healthy glow on your face making you look fresh. This toner does help in brightening skin and reducing dark spots and pigmentation on face which was quite impressive. When you apply tonner on face you will feel some kind of stickiness on face which will make you little uncomfortable but after few seconds it will be completely absorbed by the skin making it cold and calm.
The product did not hurt my skin neither I have witnessed any breakout or irritation on my face. Continuous use of toner started improving my skin texture plus firming it gives a best toned effect to my face. I have also used this toner with other products/brand and the results are simply satisfactory. It gives you loads of happiness when product actually works. After use of product you can experience clean and clear skin making it look hydrated, fresh and glowy. The only disappointment I have of this brand is duration stays for a short time. If you use continuously this product you will enjoy looking at your skin texture improving nicely and as soon as you stop using it the effect will be vanished in 2-3 days. In short, this product does not work deeply.
Overall, I really liked the tonner and would recommend this to everyone. It is suitable for all skin type people plus it makes your skin look fresh and bright. This tonner has definitely improved my skin texture by working on face elasticity, dark spot and pigmentation. Being pricey, I live the decision on you whether to purchase it or not but let me clearly indicate you that once you stop using this product the effect will be vanished in 2-3 days. Choice is yours.
- The pump dispenser packaging is nice.
- Cleans impurities from the skin.
- Makes the skin look brighter, starting with a few times of usage.
- Gentle on the skin.

- Effect stays for shorter duration

Will I buy this product again? Maybe.
