Best Eye Makeup Products Available In Indian Market

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner:
 Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner comes in a tiny tub and a specially designed brush. The texture of these liners is very creamy and gives intense lines with smooth and even application. It’s similar to liquid eyeliner, except, it dries faster and lasts throughout the day. It doesn’t tug and can be used as a base for creating smoky eye makeup. It blends smoothly and is thick enough to make your eyes beautiful .You can either apply it heavily or smear it. The only problem I find with them is that they tend to dry with time and the colour is not as black as it should be. I prefer blackest black eyeliners but you can give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Lakme Eye Artist Eyeliner Pen:

 Lakme Eye Artist, is felt tip liner, the latest addition to the liner family. A felt tip eyeliner pen is designed for precise application on the eyelids. Lakme Eye Artist is extremely easy to use. The felt tip design is so effortlessly and easily controlled that within just one stroke, the perfect amount of eyeliner is distributed. The line can be made thinner or thicker, sharp or winged, long or short, and so on. You get an intense black colour in just one stroke and it stays on for four to five hours. But the only thing I dislike about it is that it is not water proof. The Lakme Eye Artist is priced at Rs 395 and is available widely across all Lakme counters.

Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Eye Liner:

Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Eye liner, launched in December 2012 is the latest addition to the liquid eye liner family. It comes in a black plastic bottle with long elongated handle. The brush is extremely thin which makes it easier to draw thin lines. It is of black ink colour of runny consistency and gives a glossy finish with just one stroke. Priced at Rs 225 it is a must buy for liquid eyeliners lover.

Maybelline Colossal Mascara:

 Maybelline Colossal mascara is my HG mascara. I have been using it for past two years and didn’t feel the need to try any other one. This mascara gives my not so sparse lashes, a major volume and intensifies the look of my lashes. The lashes look great with no smudging and clumping. Just two to three coats and you are done. But it’s quite difficult to remove it and you will need a makeup remover to remove it completely. I find the regular ones better than the waterproof one. Price of Maybelline Colossal Mascara is Rs330.

Faces Long wear Eyeliners:

Pencil Eyeliners are a staple to a girl’s vanity, and is especially good for beginners who find it difficult to draw straight lines. Faces Long wear eye pencils are one of the most popular eye pencils in the Indian Market and are loved by everyone. They have a plethora of shades to choose from:  Purple, Forest Green, Aqua Blue, Gray, Metal Brown, Solid Brown, Turquoise Blue, Solid Black, Sparkle Black, Dark Green and Navy Blue. The colour pay off of these pencils is amazing and all are highly pigmented. The pencils are soft and creamy and give an absolute smudge proof finish. They stay on for an average of six hours on the eyelids. Since they are extremely creamy, they tend to finish off fast. You should try at least one of these eye pencils.

Faces Metaliglow Eye Primer:

 An eye primer is a cosmetic that is used to coat the eyelids prior to the application of the eye shadows so that the eye shadow can be applied in a smooth, even layer and stay put on the eyelids for a longer period of time. Faces Metaliglow eye Primer comes in a tube with an elongated wand. It has a slightly wet consistency and gets absorbed in seconds. It does what it claims, it prevents the eye shadow from creasing and smudging and intensifies the shadow colour. It keeps the shadow intact for at least eight hours. They are a bit pricey for Rs 699 and are available at all faces counters and online.

Maybelline Colossal Kajal:

 Kajal is the most important makeup in any Indian woman’s vanity and Maybelline’s Colossal Kajal has become an essential in everyone’s vanity chest!

Maybelline Colossal Kajal was launched in 2011 and created a furore in the Indian Market. It is the most popular Kajal in Indian Market right now. Priced at Rs.175, it is quite feasible and delivers what it claims. It is jet black, intense, smudge free and stays put in my eyes for more than six hours. It can be used both on the waterline as well as eyelids. The texture is quite creamy and should be stored in a cool place else it will melt.
The only con I found is that the ingredients are not mentioned any yes the price has been increased from Rs 150 to Rs 175.

Bollywood Celebrities With Long Hair – Our Favourite 7

We all love our celebrities now don’t we? The gorgeous faces, the lovely bodies and the glamorous hair. If I could trade one thing with all the beauties of Bollywood, it would be their long, silky manes.  *Sigh* But a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do right? So here I am, listing the top ten best celebrities with fabulous hair, long, of course ;)

Sonakshi Sinha:

Deepika Padukone:
 Ms. Padukone is my favorite for a reason – she has a body to kill for, has a thing of tattoos and is a lady of class. With the beautiful, beautiful smile on that spotless face, she sure owns the hottest hair. Deepika says a high intake of water and regular exercise coupled with a healthy diet is what gives her the healthy, shiny mane.

Dia Mirza:

 A regular in the party circle, Dia sure has the red carpet hair doesn’t she? The shiny locks complement her baby face super well and add a wonderful definition to her face structure. I have always loved the waves on her, super chic.

Diana Penty:

All the charming next door girls gather up. Here is the prettiest damsel in town with equally wonderful hair. Diana Penty charmed men and women alike with the ever so gorgeous face and the never ending legs. And boy, did we love her hair or what? Flaunt it like Penty.

Katrina Kaif:

I haven’t found one single person who doesn’t like this chic. She is the epitome of beauty. So is her hair. The Barbie doll of Bollywood sure knows how to garner all the attention she so deserves, with the lovely hair. The highlights give an illusion of thickness and volume. A little birdie says Ms.Kaif imports shampoos and conditioners and everything that goes to her from Switzerland.  I would love to believe, ‘cuz boy that is some luxurious hair.

Jacqueline Fernandez:


This Sri Lankan beauty has such voluminous hair; I wonder how she manages it. It’s thick, lustrous and full of life. It also suits her curvaceous body very well, what do you think?
So girls, this is my compilation of the best of the Bollywood’s leading ladies. Who are you favorites? Let me know!

Malaika Arora Khan:

 Being one of the hottest yummy mummies of the glamour world, I think Mrs. Khan rocks the long locks like a charmer. It suits her pretty face and the gracious body. If I could vouch for one hot mommy, it would definitely be Malaika and her hair!
