Review of PATANJALI ROSE WATER




Hey everyone,

We always run for the high-end brand when we need something extra care for our skin, but we always forgot that only a constant caring towards skin can make us glow naturally. It is a prolonged process but we always want something that works like a miracle in a week which never happen and finally, we go on changing the product…




Wake up guys…nothing will work in one day, one had to patient and regular in skincare routine to get the desired effect.

No, today I am not here to give you any advice, but definitely going to share a review of a nice and affordable product that i am using from last seven months constantly.

PATANJALI ROSE WATER is my recent go to toner from the last couple of months. 



Price: - Rs.25/- for 120 ml.


PATANJALI ROSE WATER comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a pink cap on it. The bottle has a broad mouth opening with a tight closure lid that can be removed by pulling only. So it is a spill-proof packaging. 


How to use and what it claim?

PATANJALI ROSE WATER is suggested to dab drop wise in a cotton ball and apply it on the eye for relaxation and on a face for toning. It is claimed to cure all the dryness of skin that occur due to dry summer or winter. 



Coming to my experience:-

PATANJALI ROSE WATER is a transparent liquid that looks like plain water. It smells like the rose that lingers for hours even after the toner dried on skin. The toner is a great relaxing one for my dry skin. It makes my skin look fresh every time I use it. I have severely sensitive skin and so I am always choosey while buying toner but this one I think I can buy and use throughout my life as it is non-irritating and non-sticky toner.


Although it doesn't heal any acne or a pimple but definitely it lightens the acne and pimple spot if use regularly. It is a good toner that brightens up my skin to some extent and helps to remove light tan too.




How I use this PATANJALI ROSE WATER?



I personally prefer to use the toner after refrigerating it for hours. I use the toner on my eye area using a cotton pad for 15 mins and then let it dry naturally. While for my face I use the toner using a cotton ball and let it dry naturally. I don’t rub the toner, instead of it I prefer to dab the toner on my entire face. Sometimes I prefer to mix the toner in my face pack too to get much more effect. 




Over in all, it is a nice toner with less chemical that can be use on the regular basis on any skin type. The toner is quite cheap in price and at the same time good for skin hydration. 






Have you use this toner yet? which is your favorite toner ?


That's all for today, I will see you soon with some new post.

Love Sammy :*

REVIEW & SWATCHES OF URBAN DECAY ELECTRIC PALETTE :-



"Bright shades describe me and it actually defines my mood always...
I love neutrals only when I want to play safe but I love brights when I am experimental on my own way..."

You must be wondering what I am saying today. Actually, today's post is all about URBAN DECAY ELECTRIC PALETTE. The palette that has 10 beautiful bright shades, the palette that finally completes my initial collection (as urban decay have huge eyeshadow range) is the talk of the post today.


Price:-  Rs.3790/- (I brought it by a gift coupon and royalty discount for which I had to pay 3275/- for my palette, no customs).

Availability :- Strawberrynet.com

A little info about the URBAN DECAY ELECTRIC PALETTE:-



It is an Electric Pressed Pigment Palette: 10x Pressed Pigment, 1x Double Ended Pressed Pigment Brush.

Product details :-



  •     Electric Pressed Pigment Palette:
  •     10x Pressed Pigment (Chaos, Freak, Fringe, Gonzo, Jilted, Revolt, Savage, Slowburn, Thrash, Urban) 1.2g/0.04oz
  •     1x Double Ended Pressed Pigment Brush
  •     Contains ten of the brightest, most amazing eyeshadows
  •     Ranges from ultra-smooth mattes to highly dimensional shimmers
  •     Developed with patented Pigment Infusion SystemTM for velvety texture
  •     Delivers serious color payout, superior staying power & bendability
  •     Housed in a slim, sleek palette with a huge mirror


My experience:-


Urban decay is one of the leading brands that makes some perfect eyeshadows always. The eyeshadows are at their best quality. After grabbing URBAN DECAY NK 1, 2, 3 palettes, URBAN DECAY ELECTRIC PALETTE, was on my list long back. So when I receive a gift coupon from Strawberrynet for which my palette was in discount I just blindly grab this palette to complete my collection of URBAN DECAY EYESHADOW PALETTE (I know another palette is already launching and that too I might grab in near future if only I want some neutral best matte eyeshadows).

 The palette comes in a beautiful sturdy colorful packaging. Both the outer box and the palette have similar colorful outlook. The palette is pretty sturdy and little heavy, which makes the eyeshadow really safe.

The palette has the magnetic closure for which it is travel-friendly too. It comes with a dual ended brush and with a huge mirror which is enough for applying the eyeshadow or for any touch ups. As the palette is colorful and so are the bristles of the brush too that comes with this palette( which are purple in color instead of usual black or white or shaded one). The brush is a dual ended pressed pigment brush, as I told you earlier. It's one side is perfect for applying and blending eyeshadows over lids while the other side is good for precise application.

Coming to the shades, SLOWBURN, JILTED, SAVAGE & URBAN are not meant for sensitive part of eye area like tear duct one. Rest all can be applied on waterline. I used the above mention shadows for my lower lashline avoiding tear duct area and they are quite ok. But still I would not recommend you all to try those shades on waterline.

The palette consists of 10 beautiful brights shades that are perfect for creating any bright look. The shades are super pigmented. And there are no fallouts in any shades. The shades work at its best if they are applied by dabbing the shadows over the lid with a semi wet brush.
The eyeshadows without any primer stay 6 hours on my oily lids without any creasing. After 6 hours , I saw a slight creasing on my crease area which can be avoided with a proper primer over the lid.


The brush that comes with the palette is pretty helpful one and in fact, one can create any look using that brush only. The sky blue, the orange, the lime shades are light shades in the palette but still they are super pigmented which are just beyond my expectation.

Over in all my thoughts regarding this URBAN DECAY, ELECTRIC PALETTE is " when it is URBAN DECAY eyeshadow palette, you don't need any recommendation to try it". I am very happy with my purchase and do recommend everyone to grab this palette if you are a bright eyeshadow lover like me ;) .

Strawberrynet.com sometimes come up with 10% discount, so keep your eye on that site so that you can grab this palette in little discount or if you don't want to take risk from international site you can try out Instagram seller LAMAKEUPAFFAIR for this palette.

I know and I admit that URBAN DECAY is the brand that comes with a price tag which is why everyone can't afford it so here I am listing you few closer dupes of URBAN DECAY ELECTRIC PALETTE.

DUPE LIST and FROM WHERE TO GET IT:-

  • NYX ULTIMATE EYESHADOW PALETTE IN BRIGHTS (reviewed it here).
  • MORPHE EYESHADOW PALETTE IN 35B (reviewed here).

Both the eyeshadow palette I mentioned here are permanent one, so you can definitely grab it anytime. For NYX try out NYKAA.COM, as I bought the palette from there only and for MORPHE ONE there are few Instagram sellers who sell this Morphe palette like LAMAKEUPAFFAIR, LACHICWICK, THE_MAKEUP_STORE_INDIA, BEAUTY.SPLURGE and much more.

So, here I am ending my today's post with loads of pictures for you all to see and enjoy :)

















Have you tried URBAN DECAY PALETTE?
I will see you in my next post
Love Sammy :*

[AS I AM GETTING SO MANY QUERIES REGARDING INSTAGRAM SELLERS,SO I DECIDED TO GIVE YOU A RECOMMENDATION AS MUCH AS I CAN IN MY EVERY MAKEUP RELATED POST].

KIKO MILANO STORE REVIEW & A SMALL HAUL FROM KIKO !



"IF HEAVEN OF MAKEUP LIES ANYWHERE THEN IT IS NOW IN DLF MALL MALL OF INDIA."- the first thought came to my mind when I checked in the store for the first time.


For a novice like me, "KIKO MILANO launching in India" sentence took 3-4 days to understand the meaning...the total hype created by brand before it's launching it's FIRST EVER STORE IN INDIA was enough for all makeup lovers to go mad for it.



A little info about KIKOMILANO for people who are still juggling with this brand like me...
KIKO MILANO is an Italian leading brand of cosmetics, makeup, and skincare products (I understood only these lines, for now, rest am keeping it for future as the more I use the products, the more I will be aware of the brand.)

The brand launches a huge store in Delhi. The promotion of the brand was huge and so the store is. They have the wide range of makeup, cosmetics and skin care products.
The price of all products is pretty affordable (trust me, they are much cheaper than MAC ;) ).


Price info :-

As they have a huge range so it is hard to remember the price of all, but giving you a little bit of idea about the prices of few.

Face product:-
Matte powder, wet and dry foundation, bronzer all are within Rs.1200/- to Rs.1650/- approx.
Eyeshadow range starting from Rs.350/- to Rs.1050/-
Eyeshadow stick is Rs.800/-
Eye pencils are Rs.260/-
Mascara range starting from Rs.750/-.
Brushes are starting approx. Rs.1200/- (maybe lower a bit for few small brushes as they have a huge collection of brushes).
Nail paints approx. Rs.260/-


A wide range of Lipsticks starting from Rs.390/- to Rs.1050/-
They have eyeshadow cream base, eyeliners, Blushes and lip liners, skincare products (read many more things) whose price I forgot :(


They have even few makeup accessories, nail tools too along with makeup removers and mixing fluid. 


My final conclusion regarding the store:-

The store is pretty big and the MUA are pretty co-operative. The store had the huge collection and each display items have price range writing on side of each case which is really good as you don't have to ask the store people again and again for the price of each. The fresh pieces are also displaying above of each tester, so that once you check the testers you can pick fresh pieces by itself.  The arrangement is quite similar to those grocery stores in the mall which is really really cool for us who love to shop makeup without any shop girl buzzing behind you every time you intend to pick something just to see.
Next, I found some interesting product too which I am looking forward to trying it.
Over in all, I found the store is quite good, and the price range is surprisingly affordable one compare to all those high-end brands that are already available in India.


Yesterday it was an unplanned weekend program that I suddenly landed on this "heaven of makeup" store. And with the permission of the store manager, I click few pictures of the store. My intention is not to make to you feel sad as it opened here and not anywhere else but giving you a ray of hope that as they enter India, so I bet they going to have chains of stores now in the most city. 
















I picked up few things from the store, but that is an another story which I will share soon, for now here is the glimpse of it... :)


 I hope you like a quick review of the KIKO MILANO  store. Do let me know what are you eyeing from this particular brand. I will see you in my next post ;)
Love Sammy :*

PR POST :- Have fun…but after investing, Girls!



Are you worried about your/your family’s financial life? Do you often find your bank balance nearing zero by the 20th of each month?
 Do you have a huge credit card bill outstanding due to the impulsive shopping you do every month, and are worrying yourself out, on ways to pay it off, ladies? Have you saved enough for the major expenditures coming up in the next 5, 10, 15 or 20 years? Have you saved 3 months of your income as your emergency fund? Or worse still, do you at all save any penny from your earnings each month, or blow it all up on your living expenses? 
If the answers to all the above questions is No and if you are already stressed to relate to these scary questions, then you need to seriously think about your securing financial life.
Or do you dream to be a billionaire and are clueless of how to process about it? Yes we are not exaggerating, it is quite possible, if you invest regularly for the next 10-15 years.
As much as it’s heartening to see women becoming financially independent and contributing to their household expenditure and footing their bills today, it’s also a fact that women splurge a lot. Did I mention retail therapy to cure a bad mood? :) It’s a fact that women are impulsive shoppers and quite prone to temptations too! And the glittering and alluring shopping malls are not aiding a wee bit. The scariest fact is, women live longer than men. So if you do not invest wisely, circumstances could be quite bleak in the old age, post-retirement.
Now, why is saving and investing money so crucial? Did you raise your eyebrows at ‘saving’ and ‘investing’? Yes they are two very different concepts. ‘Saving’ means just putting aside a portion of your money, but ‘investing’ means to save your money wisely, so that it works for you to secure you totally and give more returns compared to inflation. 
Investment is essential to take care of major expenses such as education, wedding, foreign vacation, and sudden unfortunate incidents such as hospitalization due to accidents or critical/terminal disease, death of the sole-earner of a family, or, a job loss. To cope with such expenses and incidents, we must invest regularly and plan for the expenses to be incurred in a year, 5, 10, 20 years and so on.  
It is quite possible to be financially-organized, and saving small amounts each month is enough to take care of all these expenses in the future, and yet have some fun in life, as all work and no play makes us dull girls! :)
 
At Wealth for Her, we will ensure that you do not worry about finance and investment because once you allow us to take care of your money, it becomes our duty to take care of your happiness. 
And all the consultation is done completely via emails, so that you can relax. :)
