June Superstars

Saturday, July 5, 2014

So, the monthly favorites have been christened as monthly superstars. How do like the name..love it! Hate it!. Some of these are old favorites (well mostly!) and there are few new products that made it into the June list.

Dove Go Fresh Deo in Cucumber and Green Tea: I have forgotten the number of cans I've repurchased. The oldest memory of this deodorant goes back to college. Other deodorants that I tried on would sting my skin so bad. After loving Dove C
ucumber and Green tea soap, I tried their deodorant and gwaash I've have not looked back since. It is so soft on the skin, very light, fresh and summer appropriate. If I have few complaints, that would be definitely the white stain on the skin and also the fact that I had to throw away at least 3 semi-empty cans that just refuse to dispense the product. The product gets clogged in the nozzle and you have to open the whole dispensing system to get it cleaned.

Milani Baked blush in Luminoso: Milani is an American drugstore brand. When I bought the two shades Luminoso and Rose D'Oro, I had little or no expectation from Luminoso, mainly because I thought it would not show up on my skin tone. Surprise surprise, never judge a makeup product from online swatches :p. The blush provides a very natural peachy flush of color and imparts a subdued glow to my face. It's now my go to blush for every occasion.

MAC Select Moisture cover Concealer in NC45: I have a friend who loves panda so much that she collects panda goodies. Personally, I love the cuddly panda, but panda eyes not so much. Genetically, I'm blessed with with dark circles (how cool huh). I try to hide em on a day to day basis. I used to use the heavy duty MAC Studio Fix concealer to cover up the dark circles, but they crease badly and look so unnatural. This on the other hand is so natural looking. Ensure you set this with a powder to avoid creasing. It's not a full coverage concealer, it will let your skin shine through with minor imperfections. None of us are perfect to the point we look made up right.

NYX Love in Paris palette in 
MADELEINES AND MACAROONS: This is one of my earliest palettes. I bought it from the NYX US site and got it shipped to Gs cousin's place. It is a basic neutrals pallets that will help u achieve an effortless look. You can see by the small dents in the colours on how much I love this palette.

Olay Total Effects (Cream + Serum duo): I can't give an opinion on the anti ageing part, but this is one of a constant fixture in my night care routine. The Cream + Serum duo is a thick consistency cream, that gets absorbed into the skin within minutes. It makes my skin supple and smooth. Strictly, a night time skin care product, as the cream itself is a little thick for the day time use. It pricey, cost Rs. 800 ($15) for 40g of product.

Cosmopolitan Magazine: I love this magazine, much more than Femina. It is a light read, covering everything from fashion to food to travel to beauty. G calls it my poison, as I am always on the hunt for this magazine. Hardly very few stores stock them and they are always OOS.

That wraps up my June superheroes , so what are yours?
