Winner Announced: Casting Creme Gloss Trend Sourcing Contest

I was planning to take things a little slow today since I was doing a One Day Juice Cleanse (detailed post coming up soon). But ironically, I've been on my toes and out of the house the whole day and it's only now that I managed to get some time for the blog...

So, the Trend Sourcing contest. Thank you all for participating and for all your lovely answers. As always when there's a contest, it's very difficult to choose one winner but choose I had to.

The Casting Creme Gloss Trend Sourcing Contest

L'Oreal Paris India's ammonia-free hair colour, Casting Creme Gloss, has a range of 12 beautiful colours. Of these, three shades belong to their "Chocolate Factory Collection". These three luscious, rich chocolate shades all have an identifiable "personality" and each girl will be able to identify herself with one of these.

Keeping these "Chocolate Girls" in mind, L'Oreal has launched an exclusive "Say Yes To Color" store on Flipkart where girls can shop for trends that would go well with these personalities. Quite an innovative concept, don't you think? You can check out the Flipkart store here:

My Foundation Lust List

Ironic isn't it, that when my skin is finally behaving itself, I'm lusting after foundations. As most of you know by now, I don't even wear foundation daily so an average 30ml bottle/tube of foundation lasts me for ages (well, not really. It expires and then I have to throw it out.). But after trying out the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, and seeing how beautifully it photographed, I found myself lusting after it. Then I tried out another foundation and loved it's texture. Then I read about two other foundations.... And now I'm totally confused.

Though I don't "need" a new foundation, I certainly do "want" one of these.....

Indian Shringar Turns Two With A New Look And A Twitter Contest

Indian Shringar turns two
At least this "baby" won't have "Terrible Twos" ;)
It sounds like such a cliché when someone says "Time Flies" and yet, when I realised that the blog is turning two, those are the first words that come to mind. I simply can't believe that it's been two years since I started this blog, on a total whim, without any sort of planning (and with terrible photography skills, not that they're any better now) or research on how really to start and maintain a blog. These two years, for me, have literally been a "hands-on" learning experience. 

But what a fabulous experience! To know that people actually read what you have to say, to go somewhere and have people tell you that they read your blog, these are beautiful experiences. These two years have also given me so many new friends. Friends who are separated by distance, who might never meet me, or just occasionally at events and yet who connect and bond because of our love of all things beauty. A big thank you to all of you.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream - Review and Swatch

One of The Body Shop's most popular ranges is the Tea Tree Oil range which is formulated with organic Tea Tree oil specially sourced from Kenya. The newest addition to this range is the Flawless BB Cream which comes in three shades to suit Indian skin tones. These days, I have been using BB creams pretty regularly so of course, I was eager to try out this one as well.
