~Review:Sweet Touch Cosmetics Lash Boost Mascara~

Some days ago I recieved this lovely care package from the people at Sweet Touch Cosmetics.The package contained different goodies.I am reviewing the mascara that was sent to me.It is called the Lash Boost Mascara.

A Little about the Brand:
Sweet Touch England, is a color cosmetic brand manufactured in Italy, Germany and UK. Since its launch in 2001, it has become a GLAMOUR BRAND for women of all ages.Its extensive product line includes make up for eyes, lips, face and nails. Its uniqueness lies in the broad spectrum of color shades. 
A Little about the Mascara:

~My experience with Lash Boost Mascara~

Mascara is the most important when it comes to eye make up.Whether you apply eye shadows or not ,its important to apply mascara.It at once enhances the look of the eyes and makes it appealing.One of my favorite mascaras is Lancome Hypnose Drama.Though it is a high end mascara but its worth buying and investing in it.You are lucky if there is a drug store mascara and it does you good because mascaras shelf life is short and its must to change it after a few months.
This mascara has green tea extract in it and it is for enhancing the volume of the lashes.
The thing I like best is the wand comes with.It reaches into the very beginning of the lashes and separates it from the start.It also makes the applying of mascara easy on the lower lashes.My eyes are very sensitive but usually I get away with most eye cosmetics.I was also afraid while trying this mascara but luckily I didnt had any redness or irritation after using it.
I also dont use an eye lash curler as I have naturally curly eye lashes.This mascara enhances the curl and gives the lashes a volume.They suddenly appear thicker and volumized.The mascara transfers very quickly from the wand to the lashes so you have to be very careful & steady in application so that you dont get any mascara on your eye lid or lower eye area.Its a good reasonably priced mascara for everyday use.The only thing I don't like about it is that it clumps my lashes in one application.I have to apply 2-3 coats to get the clumping off.
With Mascara-Without Mascara

The mascara stays on for some good 4-5 hours.Honestly I havent been out more than this time otherwise it could have been 7-8 hours.This mascara is not waterproof.It starts pouring down at the touch of a water drop & thats not good.Someone like me who has watery eyes will have lot of problem with this mascara & would not buy it again.
I would recommend this to people who have normal eyes and want a reasonably priced mascara for everyday use.If you want a clump free and waterproof one this is not the answer to your solution.
It is for Rs.495 & is available at Sweet Touch Counters nationwide.

Which is your favorite mascara?

~Review: Dresslily Online Store Ear studs haul~

Online shopping is sometimes a source of happiness and great fun.I was very much excited when I got an invitation to choose anything I wanted for $20 from
I love to surf the sites and look upon the items and then choose what I want.I had seen a couple of reviews on dresslily before so I jumped at this oppurtunity and hauled what I am crazy about these days...Yes Ear studs!They are my new love since my toddler doesn't like me wearing long earrings so I have limited myself to studs!
Ok so a little about Dresslily:

Our goal is always to provide our customers with stunning, high quality fashion products at down to earth prices. offers trending fashion-forward styles, edgy and innovative designs all delivered with a truly class-leading professional service.
Ok so here is what I got for myself from Dresslily.
Now this doesn't mean that the site only has jewelry!It has everything from hats to shoes.But I am usually the one who cant take risk with dress and shoe size so I love to haul jewelry and accessories.Besides I am being a ear stud-holic these days.
They have loads of variety in their jewelry section.Bangles,bracelets,necklaces,charm bracelets,earrings,ear studs,rings etc etc.One is really spoilt for choice.I searched and looked and nearly completed having a look at all the earrings and earstuds variety.
I chose ear studs that had several pairs
Yes this is the same quality that is found in Forever 21,H&M & Dorothy Perkins.I rank these ear studs No.1 in quality.There is literally no compromise in quality.We all know that China sends out its no.1 quality products to these known brands & definitely China is the whole sale supplier to these business sites as well.So you can say that whether you buy at H&M or Dorothy Perkins or Dresslily its the same thing.
Lets have a closer look at my picks
6 pairs of Holiday themed earrings Sale Price:$2.95 Orinally $3.54
9 Pairs of Exquisite Gemstone Embellished Earrings Sale price:$3.17 Originally:$5.39

3 Pairs of Chic Rhinestone Embellished Alloy Earrings Sale price:$2.47 Originally $4.20

Now Lets have a look at the single pair earrings

Last but not the least I also got a brooch for my son!He loves horses

Fully-jewelled Horse Brooch Sale price;$3.04 Originally:$7.07

I really love all the pieces that I have ordered.The earrings are nearly same as they were on the website.I was only disappointed with the parrot shaped earrings.They were kinda small than I imagined.Anyways they are cute & I still love them.The shipping time was also appropriate.I got my parcel after 2 weeks of shipping.Shipping was free for me as I entered a code given by the PR person with whom I was coordinating.I placed the order on their website & as a result they shipped out my things.I expected the quality to be a little bit different than that in the pictures but it was just rge best.Some of the earrings also had extra stoppers.Their prices are awesome and the sale prices are even more attractive.
I would recommend Dresslily to all who love fashion and accessories.You can update your wardrobe by ordering chic trendy stuff from Dresslily or beautify yourself by adorning lovely jewelry and accessories.
