Review | Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation

I always believe that we all inherit a lot of things from our mothers be it beauty, nature or style. Similarly to that we also tend to fall for the brands they use, and this is how I have been passed down 'love & loyalty' towards Lakme! I have seen my mom using this brand since ages & how she refuses to replace it with any other, for its sheer affordability & quality.

While I have been stocking certain Lakme products dedicatedly in my vanity since the time I've started using makeup, when I got to know about their latest '9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation' launch, I knew I had to try these out too.

Review | My Envy Box (August)

Back again with a new box of surprises! Unlike last time this box not only contained skincare products but also had a beauty product, which quite obviously upped my excitement to receive it. My Envy Box unveiled this edition with the tagline #CelebratingBeauty, so lets check out how well do they succeed i doing that. 
Pricing: 850 INR for 1-month subscription Packaging: My Envy Box August edition came in an ethereal Lavender box with floral pattern.

Products: The August edition has 5 products (both trial & full-size)
Soultree - Lipstick (Coral Pink)
Full size: 4.5gm | 550 INR

Sadly, the product for which I was really excited about was the one that came damaged despite of amazingly sturdy packaging. But the shade was too pretty to not be used, so I utilised my DIY skills & fixe…

Back to Basics

I have often seen influencers looking down upon 'basics', citing this style to be very mundane & one can do nothing to make it look fancy! But I don't agree with it because somehow you ought to sport it on regular basis because you obviously cannot dress up all the time, for no reason. 
o I thought of creating a look which is absolutely basic but amping up the fashion quotient to add my personal style to it. Not-Your-Conventional-Basic-Outfit
I took the most used & abused basic outfit combination of a tee with a pair of denims and made it look sartorially savvy by opting for flared chambray pants. Like we all know that chambray gives the perfect illusion of denims while be light as a feather, and that's what we need during summers as well as during unpredictable rains. 
Paired it up with a basic tee & layered over a bralette with embroidered patches, which camouflaged and made it look like an embroidered tee! Added my favorite tan mules & kept my clear gla…
