Hellos Beauties,

Recently Nykaa introduced the NYX Avant Pop eyeshadow palettes which makes your eyes pop. 6 matte shades, 3 gorgeous satin finish shades and one beautiful highlighter shade, well what else do you need in a eyeshadow palette? I have the ‘Surreal My Heart‘ in this category and I am quite impressed.

Let’s take a moment and see how gorgeous some of these shades are 🙂

You get 10 eye shadows of around 2.83 gms each and all of them are so Opaque except for shade 9.

Shade 2 and 6 are the most unique shades in this palette. 2 is a bright mint yellow but not ‘on your face’ bright and  6 is a shimmery grey colour.

Shade 3 which is a sea blue pastel colour and shade 7 which is a gorgeous blue, are the stars of this palette :). Both have a satin creamy texture and can brighten up any look.

Shade 4 brown and 5 mauve are good for the crease. Shade 1 looks amazing as a brow highlighter and I use shade 10 to get a matte liner look.

Price : Rs 1500

Now let us look at the YAY and NAY points for this palette.

YAY

-> Very pigmented with and without primer.

-> Long lasting

-> Unique colours

-> Blends easily

-> Sleek plastic packaging, hence travel friendly

NAY

-> Very Pricey.  I agree the quantity is much more than the other eyeshadow palettes have, but it’s not of much use.

-> No mirror included.

> Fallout, though it is very minimal and can be easily swiped off with a brush.

So my verdict for this one. I would say 3.5/5 mainly coz for the NYX brand, it seems to be pricey. I love everything else about it :).

Hope this review is of some help to you girls 🙂

 

Until Next Time,

XOXO,

For everyone else, Restroom is just a place where we do our ‘BUSINESS’ but for Girls, it is a room of endless possibilities :P.. yeah it’s true. Now before you guys get any weird ideas let me just get to the point. Below are a few things which we girls do in restroom apart from what it is supposed to be used for 😛

1) SELFIES No points on guessing this one. I can see all the girls nodding their heads on this one ;). Sometimes restrooms have the best lighting for selfies/groupies and we cannot stop clicking hundreds and hundreds of them. 

1

2 ) MAKEUP SESSION – No points for guessing this one too.We can go into the washroom looking sick and come out looking like a diva. And if there is a full sized mirror then ‘ Girl !! Sign me Up ‘ 

2

3) LIFE DECISIONS – Yes, the most crucial decisions of our life like our love life, heartbreaks etc are made in the restroom. Besties Gang up and discuss all the pros and cons with the ‘one who is in trouble’. This is where we pour out our feelings, when I think of it now I do feel it’s odd but it’s true.

3 3

 4 ) CRY – Yes, most of us do this. There are times when we just want to burst out crying and cannot do so in public. So we use the washroom. We cry our hearts out and come out stronger :P. We either do it alone or take our friends along 😛

4-24

5) GREAT IDEAS  – Well not exactly great, but we do discuss and get ideas on random topics. Imagine a scenario where one girl is using one of the toilet and her bestie is using the next one with doors closed of course . They start talking to each other, coz you never know those 2 minutes of their peeing time might even erase away all the thoughts they are having down with the flush. BTW, Where do you think I got the idea of writing a post on this 😛

6) FITTING ROOM –  I have witnessed this myself. Girls will try out clothes and take the opinion of their besties. You know like ‘What to wear on a date’ or ‘What to wear for a wedding party’ kind of decisions. Very creative I must say.

6

7) PHONE TALKS  – There is no better place when you cannot take personal calls. There are no washrooms which has not witnessed fights, love, breakups, gossip made on calls.

What do you think girls ? Did I miss out any ?And guys, did you even guess all of these ?

Until Next Time,

XOXO,
