Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Body Butter Review

The Bee Lovely Body Butter from Neal's Yard Remedies is not only an essential for nourishing dry skin, it also instills a feeling of hyyge. The coziness from the scent of honey and orange and the warmth of massaging it all over is so relaxing and an experience I truly enjoy. Its the little pleasures of life that satiate us, makes us happier and that feeling amplifies when this product helps in saving the bees.
I love that I need just a small amount of body butter to cover my arms or legs after a bath. And that soothing warm scent of honey and oranges is just what I seek on these cold autumn days.
Bee Lovely Body Butter is made with organic honey and orange oil and is free from mineral oils, synthetic fragrances or colors.

GIVENCHY Noir Interdit Mascara Review and Swatches

The epitome of luxury beauty! Givenchy slays with its packaging every, single time. This beautifully presented mascara is a delight to see on the vanity and on my lashes. It lifts and lengthens the lashes and its perfumed! Love the 90 degrees bendable brush, which has been a pro secret for long. I have bent the wand in the past and have loved the precise application so I am very excited to see this feature available in this truly luxurious and high quality mascara.

ESTEE LAUDER DoubleWear Infinite Waterproof Eyeliner in 01 Kohl Noir - Review and Swatch

Fall is around the corner and I am slowly moving towards darker, bolder hues in makeup and accessories. There is something about a dark, black eye liner that makes it such a staple in everyone's makeup stash. I am still in love with Stila's Smudge sticks and I can't imagine switching but this Double Wear Infinite Waterproof Eyeliner from Estee Lauder is a wonderful option. 
I have been using this for a month now and I am quite happy with it. The month of August was exceptionally hot this year but the DoubleWear Infinite Waterproof Eyeliner held up well through the heat and sweat (I even wore it to gym). There is something weird about makeup at the gym; firstly you look great every time you catch a glimpse of yourself working out, but on the other hand it is gross to see your makeup melting off with sweat and transferring to the gym equipment/mats/floor - wherever you roll :D:D Just for the record, I never wear makeup to the gym.. I am completely bare faced at the gym. Its a waterproof formula so it sticks around if I do not use an eye makeup remover. So I leave that task for night time. More on this below:

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Tawny 3W1 Review and Swatches

I am a huge fan of sheer, luminous foundation formulas, so committing to a full 30ml bottle of Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation was difficult. I was looking for something that would stay fresh all day long no matter what the weather looks like. Its so unpredictable! I honestly feel half of my day is spent talking about the weather and how I woke up to 8°C and at lunch hour it was 23°C and its expected to touch 28°C! Like, seriously?!
So, my skin is acting weird because its so hot one day and then rain showers the next followed by smoke and spells of dryness. I also got a lot of tan on my nose bridge and forehead so, my foundations were not really helping me. I thought about a BB cream but most of them get oily half way through the day. My sister recommended the Double Wear  Foundation to me because it never gets oily, nor does it transfer! And seriously, that is 100% true! Its probably the best foundation for oily skin because it stays put perfectly all day long. And after trying a sample, I was sold! Here is a full review and swatch of the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Tawny 3W1.

Summer Beauty Favorites ft YSL, L'occitane, Make Up For Ever, Lancome, Clarins, Estee Lauder and more

Today I went to the mall to get color matched for a new foundation, since my skin has tanned quite a bit this summer and my Chanel Vitalumiere in 30 looks a touch light. So, I went to Sephora and The Bay and I am so disappointed because at Sephora I was matched with a shade which was too light and The Bay matched me with really brown orange foundation. I have no idea how my complexion can appear so different in the same day and actually during the same hour! May be its the store lighting that makes the difference. I have been pretty good on my skincare routine and have been using SPF based products so no sun burns so far. 
I decided to share my favorite products for this summer in today's blog because I think they greatly helped me in keeping my skin healthy. Aviators are absolutely necessary to keep my eyes safe and the sun hat protects my hair and face. I have deliberately left out hair products because that would make this post much longer than it already is :)  
Without further ado, here are all products I have thoroughly enjoyed this summer. Keep reading for review and photos...
