I’m afraid it’s yet another minimal product FOTD! What am I like? I blame this on my mascara – I absolutely love it, it makes me look ‘done’ without a spot of makeup on so I really don’t feel the need to slap too much on. In fact I’ve only been applying bb cream where I need some extra coverage on the centre of my face, which is unheard of for me.

Maybelline Color Sensational Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 3 swatch

This lipstick was very much a grower for me. I had swatched it at the Maybelline counter many a time, fell in love but never walked away with it in hand. However when I did get round to purchasing it, it took a while for me to really enjoy using it. I had heard so much about these lipsticks, I sort of felt the need to join in; everyone raves about MAT 1 and MAT 2 but you don’t really hear too much about this colour, MAT 3. In fact it’s one that most counters don’t even have out on display, so you have to ask to get a peek, I guess that makes it feel even more special!

Ah me, I just love those trains don’t I? If I’m not commuting to and from work on them in the week, then I’m trekking up North to see relatives at the weekend! You can’t tear me away! I’ve actually become quite the expert packer when it comes to my travel suitcase. And when it comes to makeup I now really know what is a must-have and what can be left at home (aka ‘no I do not need four lipsticks for a weekend break’). Let me show you the two things which are always the first things I pack.

Well a big song and dance was made when the Lakme Absolute Nail Colours made their way to markets, wasn’t there! The Beauty Blogger hype parade came into town! After seeing the peeps go on about them I promised myself I wouldn’t give into pressure, but sure enough I began trying to scout them out! Silly Gauri! It wasn’t easy, these little bottles of nail colour are difficult to come across and if the store does have them then 9 times out of 10 you’ll have only 12 colours to choose from. In the end I found a small display and picked up the shades Aqua Express and Crimson Fire.

The minute that I get home from work I throw my hair on top of my head. Without a second thought up it goes, whipped in a hairband and from that moment on it’s affectionately known as the ‘apple’. However if I decide to rock the ‘apple’ throughout the day then I’ve found a great little trick to help me achieve the perfect imperfect bun…

Overall my lips are definitely more on the chapped side of proceedings. I generally apply lip balm every two hours, but recently it had been getting dry after an hour – so today I brought in the big gun..
