Kylie Jenner lookalike lipsticks under Rs.500.

Sold out again?

 

Did you miss out on the Kylie Jenner lipkit restock again this time? Well I did.I swear I planned on getting at least candy K which I failed.Am I the only one who thinks she needs to manufacture about 3 million lipsticks minimum? All said and done,I knew I had to find my way out and thus me and my friend Nicole set out on a ‘finding Kylie jenner lipstick lookalike’ expedition.I was pleased at the end of the day with 5 shades we managed to find lookalikes for!However these were subject to mixing two shades for one Kylie lip colour,except the Mary jo K dupe.There were a total of 8 shades(2 per shade) we blended and repeated,for the right colour.

This was one of her first 3 shades and it was the easiest to replicate.

The two shades to blend are:

  • #missclaire-Aqua rouge 320. Price-Rs 190.
  • #Faces-Cinnamon 05.Price-Rs  300 (I managed to bag them at a good 50% discount).

2)Kourt K.

  •    #Matteme-fandango purple 411.Price-Rs 250.

  •  #Colourbar-Bare 58 velvet matte.Price-Rs 350.

5)Mary Jo K.

  • #Matte me-Rioja red.price-Rs 250.

Don’t be disappointed if any of those shades don’t come out exactly as Kylie Jenner’s shades.What you’ll discover is a new stage of lipstick colours and textures.We’re all way over those bright Pinks,oranges and these colours are a fresh welcome.Subtle liptalk is what we’re totally embracing this season.

Experimenting with about 15 shades of lipsticks, after thorough research,trials,atrocious colour combinations later ,we arrived at the right colours for Indian skin tone at the most affordable prices.My personal favourite turned out to be matte me.Matte me is a liquid matte lipcolour,which lasts as long as 12 hours in it’s exact texture and form of application.It is worth the price I paid (Rs.250) and is a must try and buy.

Aishwarya’s lips don’t lie…in the hands of our judgement

Lucky lips

Society has recently been obsessed at different levels with ‘LIPS’.It all began with Kylie jenner’s negative publicity for artificially plumped lips which she smartly cultivated into her lipkit empire!What I fail to understand here is the negative & sassy comments Aishwarya Bachchan received for her lavender lips (Call it purple one more time and I’ll shoot you).I am no fan of her’s but this time,i’m on team ‘lips’.Those lips should have garnered support instead,for the bold move at Cannes.We indians have got to get over our own stereotypical thinking of how a bahu and mother should ideally dress or look,in ways we deem appropriate.

Calm down women

Would we have reacted in the same way,had it been for any other actress under 30,unmarried and without a child? we would have been fairly satisfied and proud if a Priyanka Chopra  pulled off this look.Thanks to her bold and risque personality with the onset of her impressions in hollywood.Ash on the other hand, has been this graceful,poised,sophisticated figure representing the women that grew up watching her(I don’t discount the fact that she has starred in hollywood films).Thus it comes as such a shocker to this audience that resonates with her personality.She kept pleasing the media with her demure attires through these years and then there came lavender lips.This set of audience definitely got flabbergasted and went like, ‘Wait what happend? we do not wear that shade and it is just unacceptable!’.It’s such an unexpected curve on the fashionomic graph!Sincere apologies to you all,but the graph was tired of just being a straight line going upwards without any shifts.We’ve been through blue eyelids and now, it’s just time for lavender lips.(Who knows it could be the next thing).If you’ll haven’t checked out #jeffreestar you’re missing out on #lipporn.

The actual look

I think the lips work out beautifully,given the white floral textured gown with lavender & white flowers(You now know why she chose the lipstick!basic colour co-ordination duh).It gives her a futuristic look,drawing major attention to the lips.What could have been improvised aesthetically, were the eyes.Those smoky eyes were a total no no.Overall the look is boldly beautiful for a change and a fresh welcome to my eyes,besides,We need to get over those reds,maroons and pink!

Next Lipkit in India?

Ash topped my list of ‘celebrities to stalk’ for cannes this year,with kendall Jenner and Sonam Kapoor always topping the charts.Speaking of Jenner,should we wait impatiently for Ash’s next move based on lips? She probably intends to convert this publicity and generate traffic towards #L’oreal’s new lipstick collection,or simply launch her own ‘lipstick’ for mothers.Let’s just hope this gorgeous mommy keeps surprising us every year!I’m guessing she opted for #blowpony by #jeffreestarcosmetics.What do you guys think?Leave a comment below if you’ll know the brand of her lipstick.

How to dress for a pool party in Mumbai

What we think pool party outfits are like in Mumbai…

Las Vegas Pools and Pool Parties

What they actually look like…

Noticed the difference?

That’s right.Pool parties in Mumbai are on the conservative side,when it comes to outfits for women.Here’s a look I curated for a pool party ensemble in Mumbai, that is both comfy and sexy at the same time, revealing just the right amount of skin.Admit it guys,none of us lose the weight we hope to lose before the summers and thus we skip those pool parties our friends send us invites to on facebook.Here’s a chance for you to finally click on ‘Going’ instead of a ‘maybe’ or ‘not going’.

Outfit Idea

This is the look I chose to go with,but each one’s own.

Below are outfit details:

Maroon crop top- Forever 21 

Striped shorts- Forever 21

Crochet cardigan-Forever 21

Shoes-A shop on hill road

Shades-Cupcakes and closet.

Crochet cardigan

The crochet cardigan is a must have in your closet as it screams summer! It acts as your cover up,layer buddy and a fat hiding tool all at once.You can pair almost anything,right from bralettes to tank tops with this cardigan.

How to shop

Collect the cardigans that you can wear with almost anything.Colour wise,opt for white,offwhite,beige and ivory colours to make your inner top stand out.Don’t forget to match the length of your cardigan.An oversized cardigan should not go beyond your knees.Lastly,twirl,twerk and play around with it to check if you’re absolutely comfy in the changing room!

Crop top

This crop top is perfect for those with summer bellies that refuse to melt.It covers a major part of your torso, leaving the right area for exposure.

How to shop

Choose a crop top that covers your problem areas on your upper body.If you’re comfortable with bralettes,opt for those depending on your comfort.Make sure the colours you choose are a single toned colour to make it stand out.

Shorts

The shorts are as comfy as pyjama shorts.This pair of shorts was the right investment ,because of the striped neutrality.Stripes work out with any colour.

How to shop

For those who’s thighs are a problem area,it’s advisable to opt for a high waisted pair of shorts that flare slightly as they reach the thighs.The idea of shorts is comfort.Opt for 30 if you’re a 28.If you want to choose something that begins at the lower waist,then you’d rather choose a pair with an elastic to adjust the size.(That way,it lasts you through 2-3 kgs more)

Carry your comfort

As a kid, growing up to me meant getting dressed.As an upcoming adult,growing up to me still means dressing up.How can you expect to play your role if you aren’t dressed for it? Fashion speaks of the roles you’re assigned to.

Today I felt like like a homeless drug addict.I put on my joggers ,my crew neck T-shirt and clumsily tied a bun.I wanted to complete the look and so I wore these sneakers that just added to the homeless comfort and voila! It made me feel like I had a role to play.Dressing up the part made me relax for the day because it was a Friday and work didn’t demand much of me either.That didn’t stop me from wearing minimalistic makeup.I decided to slash some kajal on my waterline and upper eyelid (khal drogo style) curled those lashes with some mascara .I didn’t forget my sunscreen.Lastly i added a pop of my nude lakme 9-5 lipstick that gives my lips the perfect sheen to make me look like a druggy who still has some scope in life.I wanted to travel light (because I was homeless remember?) and so I slayed the look with my grey sling bag, studded to infinity.

 

Who says fashion is all about being poised and sophisticated? the day you embrace your look is the day you create one.I walked on to the streets like a total badass from the outside but a committed employee who still had a to do list to complete,from the inside.( I couldn’t afford to get homeless for real).This look made me feel like I’m in my zone,carrying my world along with me while performing the required tasks at hand.For those who have a strict dress code to abide with,I’d recommend abiding it your way.Carry your comfort in the form of your favourite hoodie,shoes,bag,cap etc.basically anything that lets you slay the day you don’t want to make hay.
