About the perfume
From the site

Ricci Ricci - Nina Ricci Perfume

The new mischievous fragrance by Nina Ricci
Glamourous and audacious, Ricci Ricci embodies a new urban heroine in the Parisian and sophisticated universe of Nina Ricci. Her power lies in her ribbon she plays with to colour and beautify the world with fantasy and poetry.
Ricci Ricci is a fresh and sensual floral built around the Beauty of the Night flower.
Full of contrasts, the fragrance is easy-to-wear, branded and extremely feminine. It is designed for an optimistic and self-confident woman.
Daring, the sparkling
top notes of Rhubarb and Bergamot bring a modern freshness.
 The middle note is floral, glamourous and feminine. It is built around the Rose Centifolia and the Indian Tuberose, and is enhanced by the Beauty of the Night, a unique and mysterious flower that reveals Ricci Ricci’s personality. 
Sensual and elegant, the base note comes with warm, deep notes of Patchouli Fraction and Sandalwood.

My experience with the perfume...
I got it for Rs 2895 for 100 ml bottle(actual price is around 4000+ for this size)
The bottle
Its a beautiful dark wine purple  burgundy bottle with a shiny bow shaped lid over it...It looks very elegant and I fell I love with the bottle as soon as I saw it....
Then  a whiff I took and was I hooked :P
The fragrance is floral and very sensual....The first thing  I can smell is patchouli and and its amazing....I cannot make out other smells.but i love it..its a definetely a  night night perfume...is really sexy...and me loves it....

  • the bottle is hot!!! and girly as well...
  • The lasting power is around 6-8 hours,which is good!
  • the fragrance is killer..and am sure you  will love it...
  • none as of now..:) maybe the price is a bit too much for 4000 for 100 ml,though I got a good deal....:)

me myself and my lip color!!

Hello all ,
I came across this qoute and loved it..

"If I had to teach someone just one thing about lip color it would be this: Find a lipstick that looks good on your face when you are wearing absolutely no makeup." -- Bobbi Brown, "Beauty"

As you all know am a huge lipstick hoarder....I keep on hoarding lipsticks whenever possible..am also a foundatio hoarder ,but that is another post worthy....
A few days ago, I was  just sitting and staring at my lipstick collection...( i do that often...:P),I realised to my shock that most of the shades owned by me are berry /brown berry/mauve toned colors.What happens is whnever I buy a lip color (which is very often),I am scared to experiment.I play safe with these shades because they know they would look goood on me....
Ashamed to inform you I have no.Reds/Corals/oranges in my collection.
Whenever the SA shows me a red ,i wince and pass the shade.Ditto for the orange /coral shades.

So i thought about doing this post.What lip colors would suit you??what are your safe ones ?which are the ones to avoid....??

While picking the right shade is as easy as going a couple shades darker than your natural lip color, we can delve just a wee bit deeper in the science of shades and skin tone.

Women with fair skin, look great in lipstick shades such as nudes in a slightly apricot shade, pinks and light corals. Stay away from browns, which will appear meh!!

fair katie!
Those with a medium skin tone can go a bit darker. You'll look great in roses, mauves and berries. Skip the bright reds and consider a deep burgundy instead. ( i fall here)...

fair--medium skin tones
Deep plum, chocolate or red is fabulous with dark skin. 

beautiful dusky skin...

How to Pick the Right Shade of Red

Many women wrongly believe they can't wear red lipstick. The secret to choosing the right red lip color is in the undertones. Pink-skinned girls should opt for cherry red.medium skin tones can go for burgundy and wine... Those with olive skin can wear fire-engine red. Dark skin looks great with deep reds.

 I have now decided to hunt for my perfect red....burgundy according to this post....:)
letting go of your inhibitions is the key i think..for me at least...:)

What are your fav lip color shades??
Do you own reds /orages??

MY(I) HATE LOVE STORY maybelline colossal volume mascara waterproof

hello every one....am back after a long long time today......My lappy had crashed and then the Internet had to be reinstalled which already was giving problems earlier..so :P
but am back for good now..

All of us have read (soppy) Mills and boon stories ok...i admit i thot they were romantic  ones inititally,but after a  point realised they are all the same.
Girl meek..meets rugged boy..hate at first sight...then takraar then love then break up and then finally love.........<3 <3 <3

My review today is typically like a M$B kinda story.......with some modifications obviously......:)
The review is about one of the most talked about mascaras in the blogging world....

MAYBELLINE COLOSSAL VOLUME  MASCARA.I have been reading and reading blog raves and rants..about this thing....most of the reviews I have read are strongly positive ones.here is mine.....A luv story which like a typical M$B story started with disgust and hate.

Read on................
I first purchased this mascara after all the positive reviews around 3 months ago.I  was expecting a 7 fold  volume increase as the company claimed ,and ok the volume increase around 3 times (so much for the 7 time claim) was good but GOD the thing was so so difficult to remove...it just stuck,and took me several minutes to remove the sticky thing....i was using my eye makeup remover and it tugged so bad at my eyes...with no results....
I tried it a couple of times more and then gave up totally. completely disgusted with its stickiness..was using a borjouis one for a while...
one fine day,i could not locate my borjouis mascara.....and this bright yellow thing lying disowned  at the bottom of my makeup box,seemed to be calling me....I applied it hesitantly and  and left for the occasion..I had worn it to an outing and git so many compliments on how my eyes looked...one friend even asked me the name of the mascara I was using.....and then I fell in love again.........
Since then  have been using it every single day..And I use cotton with oil to wipe it..and it comes off easily.......and now my borjouis is being used sparingly......
see if I had known about the oiled cotton earlier ,I could have prevented a heartbreak.but then you guys would be missing such a bitter sweet love affair....no??

What I love about the mascara:)
  • its a liquid formulation,not too thick or too runny.....
  • There is a good amount of volume increase but not 7 times as the company claims....
  • the length increase is also at least twice....at least in m y case...
  • The wand is thick and coats the lashes well in one stroke.
  • I have purchased the water proof variety and it stays for the whole day ,by this I do mean the whole day.
  • does not irritate eyes.
  • Does not flake or dry...
  • Reasonable esp for your daily mascara fix...
  • does not smudge .After application it dries quickly and does not spread even if you rub your eyes accidentally.
What I do not like about it
  • The fact that it is a bit clingy....although that's a positive thing for any mascara to be long lasting,I still don't like the fact that It is so stubborn   :smug:
  • The big wand may poke the eyes if not carefully used . the inner lashes esp to  reach are difficult.....:I
  • Two coats may cause clumpiness which increases the time to remove it in a direct ratio...
 Will I repurchase..surely now!!! coz its really is a happy ending!!
