These are very traditional and trendy designs and can be an inspiration for your next gold collection. I hope you will enjoy reading this article...

A pair of Chur or flat wide bangle requires alot amount of gold like a pair will need at least 40 to 50 grams of gold but can be crafted in minimum of 25 gm of gold too. Here I will share some heavy weight gold Chur designs and some light weight also...

Himalaya Under Eye Cream - Product Review

Himalaya Under Eye Cream

Best Herbal Eye Cream Himalya

Today I will be reviewing Himalaya Under Eye cream, though I don't suffer much with under-eye problems such as heavy dark circles and all... As I am a freelance painter and at times I have to work late at nights, so because of this I feel stress in my eyes. I wear contact lenses and since the skin around my eyes is very sensitive, so there are instances when I have dark circles. I have been using this cream for quite some time (approx. 2 years). I am not a regular user of this cream... whenever I get the dark circles because of the stress then only I use Himalaya Under Eye cream for about one to two weeks... so in other words, I have not followed the indications religiously and here I will share the review as I experienced and felt after.

Somi's Shine & Mint Gel for Sensitive Skin (Ayurvedic Moisturizer)- Product Review

Somi's Shine & Mint Gel for Sensitive Skin

Hi all, today I am about to review Somi's Shine and Mint gel for sensitive skin. As I have been using Somi's ayurvedic products for the past few years and I am very satisfied with her products, like Glow Active and Glow Mint Moisturizer, so I thought to give a try to Somi's Gel products. Another reason for trying this gel is that I have a very sensitive (dry to combination) skin so I suffer a lot with skin problems throughout the year specially in summers. And as I have never seen a gel product specially made for sensitive skin so I was really very keen to try Somi's Shine and Mint gel..

FACES Glam On Vintage Red Lipstick - Review and Swatches
I am crazy about lip colors, specially for the red ones. As I have dusky skin, red or different shade of red lipsticks suits me well. I usually wear LAKME or MAC lipcolors and for the last few months I have been looking for various options of red lipsticks from MAC and other brands, but MAC store in kolkata is always out of stock, don't know why!! Other brands like Lakme or Maybelline could not satisfied me with their options, so I was bit heart broken, then I found this Faces Vintage Red lipcolor on a online store called Urbantouch.com. I often buy cosmetics and jewellery from this site, they have pretty good collections. So I ordered this Faces Glam On Vintage Red lipstick. Though I was not sure about the color, as the site don't have good swatches for the lipcolor, but as it was on a discount I thought to give it a try (I bought this lipstick for Rs. 403/-). I also ordered some NYX lipgloss and Loreal Open Eyes Pro eyeshadow with it. I will try to write reviews on these products too within a few days (hope so :D ). Now to the Faces Glam On Vintage Red  lipcolor, it is a opaque color, which will give you full coverage. The color looked nice gorgeous red, I was really excited to try it on, I wore it without any lipbase or lip liners and here goes my review, but first some details...

So today I will review LAKMÉ Nine to Five Dual Action Makeup Remover.
