Affordable & cruelty free make-up

Both Deepa & I  have been using Nykaa’s products for a while now and in all honesty, my current make-up routine includes a majority of Nykaa’s products. Yes, I’ve partnered with them and products have been sent across for us to review at times. But, unless the products are really good I wouldn’t have continued using them as much as do. If you asked me to give you 3 reasons why I love Nykaa Beauty it’s because their products are cruelty free, affordable and great quality for the price your paying.

Let’s be honest though, not every product a brand puts out is amazing. So, here’s a list of products I use regularly or just love.

A part of my everyday makeup routine:

Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation – ₹575

Nykaa SKINgenius Skin Perfecting & Hydrating Compact – ₹525

Nykaa SKINgenius Foundation Stick Conceal Contour & Corrector –  ₹525

Nykaa Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner (Super Black) – ₹299

Nykaa Get Cheeky! Blush Duo (Brazilian Bombshell) – ₹699

Other products I love:

Matte to Last Liquid Lipstick – ₹550

Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel – ₹99

Nykaa Paintstix! Lipstick – ₹425

Nykaa MATTE-ilicious Crayon Lipstick – ₹625

It’s very rare to find a brand that has a wide range of products to choose from at their price points. I absolutely love the Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation and it’s been my got to since the time it was launched. This one will give you light to medium coverage and I use the shade 3 and maybe 4 when I get tanned. For your reference I used to use NC 40 or NC 42 at MaC. 

Off late I’ve been breaking out and have marks that I want to cover up so I’ve been using the Nykaa SKINgenius Foundation Stick Conceal Contour & Corrector in the shade 2 or 3 to conceal my marks and under my eyes. I then use the Nykaa SKINgenius Skin Perfecting & Hydrating Compact to set my base. This has by far been the best compact I’ve used and I’ve hit pan so that goes to show you how much I love it. I have combination to oily skin and the Nykaa SKINgenius Sculpting & Hydrating Foundation can be a little oily on my skin if I don’t set it with the compact.

If you’ve never tried some of Nykaa’s products we’d highly recommend them! But, always remember when it comes to makeup, products work differently on all of us.

Why it’s important to start using anti-ageing product for youthful glowing skin!


Everyone wants to maintain youthful looking skin right? There are multiple brands in the market with product ranges that claim to do that. But, if you’ve been following us on social media you know Himalaya is amongst the few brands we actually love and use not just because they make a great range of products but because they’re a cruelty free brand as well.

Earlier this month I attended an event where we were given so much insight by the Himalaya team & Dr.Chytra Anand from Kosmoderma about the importance of caring for your skin early on to prevent the early signs of ageing. From all the pollution around us at all times to the immense stress we put ourselves through our skin can get quite affected and start ageing prematurely. None of us want that! Did you know you should start taking preventive measures by using products like Himalaya’s Youth Eternity Range from your early 20’s itself? Most people are always under the impression that they have to use just their daily moisturizer to keep their skin looking youthful but that’s not the case at all. You need a specialized cream to tackle those early signs of ageing.

Himalaya’s Youth Eternity range are breakthrough anti-ageing formulations based on Plant Stem Cell Research and exotic Herbal Actives. The main ingredient being the Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells which are power packed with antioxidants. They also have Woodfordia, Rose Myrtle, and Cipadessa which help in regulating youth genes and aid the anti-aging mechanism of your skin. The thing that I like most about all 3 products is that they are non greasy and absorb into the skin quickly enough. 

To start with, if you can stick to using their Day Cream, Night Cream and Eye cream, you’ll be doing your skin some good for sure. They suggest using this with your other products to really keep your skin as youthful as possible. Whether you’re in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s or 50’s if you haven’t incorporated any anti ageing products in your skin care routine it’s time you go get yourself the Himalaya’s Youth Eternity range
