~NOTD:BOURJOIS So Laque Ultra Shine Nail Polish in Rouge Escarpin 24~

Hello Girls
How are you doing?Few days ago I went shopping & bought couple of stuff.
There were a couple of nail colors in my shopping cart as well.So I decided to do an NOTD post as I havent done one in a long time.
Lets move to what shade and brand it is....
Its Bourjois So Laque Ultra Shine Nail Polish & the shade is called Rouge Escarpin 24.
This is the perfect Red color for me !
As soon as I tried this color at the counter I knew I had to buy it.Here I am only wearing one coat of the nail polish.Due to the added quantity of vinyl,it is super glossy in its finish.To be honest,I haven't even applied a top coat on it & still it gives such a smooth,neat & shiny look.
I love the small chic design of the bottle.The applicator is also very nice & applies the color without streaking.The nail color says that it lasts upto 7 days.I removed it after 4 days so I believe it could have stayed for 2 more days without chipping off.
The nail color dries off really fast as well.You dont have to wait long.
The shade is mentioned at the back of the bottle.

The price of this little bottle is Rs.715.Its somewhat pricier but then it pays off very well too.
If you are getting married this season & you are going to be the traditional lovely bride in red,then why not try this lovely perfect red nail color.It will definitely add more color to the lovliest day of your life:)
So what do you think of this nail color?Have you bought any reds recently.Share with me if you have.

Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay Happy Always.

~Review:Garnier Light Oil Control Fairness Cream~

Hello Sweeties!

Today I am back with another skin product review.
Want a shine free face this summer....Go for GARNIER Light Oil Control Fairness Cream!
Yes its the newly launched product by GARNIER!

It gives the skin shine free fairness through its oil trapping technology coupled with the lightening efficacy of natural lemon essence. Garnier SN Light Oil Control ensures that skin remains shine free for as long as up to 8 hours and can be used through all seasons. Regular use of Garnier SN light Oil Controlalso lightens the skin tone and fades out acne marks. Like all Garnier Light Skin Naturals Products,  Skin Naturals Light Oil Control has been dermatologically tested for tolerance and efficacy of the product is proven. 

This fairness cream is a sequel to the GARNIER LIGHT SPF15 Launched last year.I am usually not into GARNIER products.I once used one Garnier product long time ago & wasnt satisfied with it.But when I got the oppurtunity to try this Fairness Cream by GARNIER I thought to give it a go.
I love the lemonish scent of the cream.The texture of the cream is just like whipped cream on top of a cake.
Ok so now lets move to the first main purpose of the cream.The oil control,is really good.The cream promises 8 hours of shine free look.That means that you can achieve a matte effect all day long  even in the sweaty hot summer days.This cream seems to absorb the oil on your face and keep it looking shine free.I have oily skin and I do have that oily face sometimes.This cream did a great job with me as after applying this I had a matte look during the day.Though I must say I didnt go for foundation of face powder with it because most likely if you apply this cream before applying make up then you will not be a happy person as your skin will become somewhat flaky due to the dried up effect on the skin.
Spread out
End look
The next main purpose of the cream is the whitening effect.There is something with all GARNIER Creams as they give some special attention to the fairness factor.To be very honest I havent used this cream that long to prove that it does lighten skin tone by numerical numbers.May be if someone uses it continuously for a prolonged period of time then the difference would be seen.I though believe that they wouldnt say it lightens skin tone if it didnt after all it is a great name.
The good thing about this cream is that its darn cheap & everyone can afford it whether someone who wants a matte looking skin or someone who wants to try a new fairness cream.This cream also promises to lighten acne marks with continuous use.
Overall this product is good for people who have oily skin and want to have a shine free looking face.I would also recommend this to girls who are to be married soon & want a quick freshening effect to their face plus those who want to achieve a fairer tone.The presence of UVA/UVB Filters also makes it a good affordable sunscreen.

This cream comes in a 20ml or a 40ml tube.The pictures here are of the 40ml tube & is for PRS 199/-

A very affordable & nice skin product recommended to be included in your skincare routine specially if you want to achieve a fairer oil free look.
Thanks for reading.
Stay Happy Always.
