Current Lemming: Milani MultiTasking Face Powder

Hi there.. Hows everyone doing..?? Hope great.

Anyways...its been a while since I stopped searching for a Powder Foundation because I thought Maybelline Mineral Power Powder Foundation (in Light 4) matched my skin tone quite well.. But few days ago..It accedentally/luckily happened to look myself in the day light(dont know why I didtn do that until now) and  I looked as though I was wearing a grey/pinkish mask that looked completely unflattering. So, I turned on my laptop , to look for best powder foundations. U see, Powder Foundation is the only thing that I could go on and ofcourse tinted moisturizer, being the other option. But no liquid foundations for me please. I dont know any apparent reason, but I look completely fake, unnatural, funny, clowny, etc whenever I put on a liquid foundation. Few Ive tried., Revlon Colorstay foundation, Rimmel Lasting finish foundation, Lakme foundation(I dont remember the exact name), but whatever, I finally figured that Liquid foundations are not up my alley.

So, while I was browsing MakeupAlley, I picked up some few options.
  1. Covergirl Simply Powder Foundation
  2. Physicians Formula Healthy Wear Mineral Foundation
  3. Milani Even touch Powder Foundation
  4. Milani Multitasking Face Powder
(Yea..all non-desi stuff..but Im helpless, when one cannot reach those)
I can see Loreal True match powder foundation, Neutrogena powder Foundations as well..but Im going strongly on budget. Nothing more than $8. And mostly in a compact form, thats quite portable, easy for touch ups on the go (with a mirror & sponge). There are several other mineral foundations as well but I cannot get over their packaging. Its just not handy for me.

Image Credit: Milani Cosmetics that I have these options..the best that matched me is the Milani Multi tasking Face Powder. Its got 4.3/5 in MUA. Cost is around $6. I like that gold packaging as well. The only con is that Im not sure what shade should I pick, which means more time to search google.Anyways, have to wait a while to place my order online..because I have to line this with someother goodies to avail the free shipping thing (I hate to pay shipping charges :P )

So thats it for now ladies.

Perfect Dupe for Miss Dior Cherie

Image Credit:
Feels great to do the first dupe post.
Okay..anybody there whos great lifetime fan of Christian Dior 'Miss Dior Cheris' Eau De Toilette Spray ? Im one of them. And im happy to announce that theres a dupe for 1/4th of the price.
Yes.. Its by 'Instyle Fragrance'. I got mine at Walgreens.
Its "Instyle Fragrances Designer Mist Sheer Body Mist for Women An Impression of Christian Dior Miss Dior Cherie"

Yesterday Ive been to Walgreens to get some essentials and luckily ive stumbled across the body sprays aisle having some time. Theyve got testers for everything..and when I saw the 'Miss Dior Cherie' written on them...I have to test it..and when Ive tested it..I have to have it. Haha.
One more that though its a Body mist..its strong..mean to say its not overpowereing..but i meant strong in the grounds of long lasting. I wore it today in the morning..and now its almost 6 in the evening..and i can still smell it. I LOVE it.. Cant beat the price either.. for 4.2oz, its $8. Where does that compare with the original perfume which retails almost around $90?

I used to like Bath and Body works Body mists..but they never lasted on me more than 2 hrs..why..sometimes i have to carry it and spray it whenever i need. But I dont see that thing happening with this one.
I never heard about this 'Instyle Fragrances' brand..but whatever it is..Just check that out if u hit Walgreens anytime.

Black Eyeliner is NOT for everyone..!?

Agree or Disagree..??

  • "OMG! What happened to your eyes?? U look ..err...kinda evil"
  • "May be u should try other form..! Have u tried liquid/Gel/cream/pencil eyeliner?? Have u tried black eyeshadow instead of eyeliner? Have u tried smudging it?? "
  • "May be..U r not perfect at it...U should practice..Remember, Practice = Perfect"
  • "May be u should  get used to looking at yourself in black eyeliner, though its harsh.."
  • "Why, Ofcourse..Ur eyes looks good without any eyeliner.Why do u bother about wearing one?"
  • "Sigh! May be u r cursed not to wear any eyeliner at all...!"
Have u ever got such comments in your real life??
Im not aware of other guys, but these were frequent in my life. But not any more.. Read on if u have time..

It all started during my childhood, when i just admire when my mommy is getting her makeup done. Makeup, by then, was completely different. When it comes to my mom, it was just the Talcum powder, Kajal and sindhoor and compact only on some occasions. But this is pretty much IT for her. So, for me..its all in Kajal, that attracts me to put it on my eyes. So, after i grew up , when i was able to put it on all by myself, i tried it again and again..and no one day that i could remember that my mom said it looks good on me. Back then, my mom was the best critic, when it comes to looks and clothing. trials were never ending. I tried every other eyeliner in the market..hoping that it might go with my eyes... Year after year..but No luck at all..Finally I came to conclusion that eyeliners are something not meant for me. So , I just GAVE UP.

But day, I got a BROWN Brow pencil, because Ive read in an article that 'Dark clored Brows should be filled with 3 shades lighter color and light colored brows should be filled with 2 shades darker color". Earlier to this i used to use the black brow pencil..but after using the brown brow looked so natural.
One day..I dont know how i got the idea..but I lined my eyes with the brown brow pencil..and OOH MY GOD..For the first time in my life..I couldnt believe that my eyes looked so beautiful, so defined..Ok... thats too much. But it didnt look harsh at all, like the way i get when i use a black pencil
From then on..I got hooked to 'Brown Eyeliners'. If theres any new eyeliner thing in the market..that claims to  do everything u want..then il just check if it comes in BROWN.. If happy to skip.

Ive just googled this topic, and i found some questions I believe that im not alone.
So, If u look harsh with Black eyeliner..dont change the formula..change the color and see whether it suits you. Some few days ago, I came across a Caucasian friend of mine, and she admitted that Taupe eyeliner is what she picks. So..its all in the color.

What do u say..??
Agree or Disagree..??
