Sachi Singh, says- “It’s a proud moment for us, Mickey is the perfect face for Kawachi. The response has been good so far as we are only doing private orders in India and USA which are placed via email or at the store.

Bouquet of Roses by Camelia's Natural & Handmade Bath & Body Treats Review

Hi guys,

How have you all been... i was supposed to do a few posts this weekend but things took a really wrong turn in my personal life and i just couldn't do anything! I was pretty upset about how things were growing, but i'm a strong girl who is not going to sit about crying because of stupid people. So i'm back to blogging...

Today i'm reviewing a soap which i should have reviewed really long back. Its tried and tested long back!  I'm reviewing the Bouquet of Roses soap made by Camelia of  Camelia's Natural & Handmade Bath & Body Treats. I was a happy customer who shopped again! You can check out my haul from her store HERE.


Milk, Rosewater, Vit E, Bentonite Clay, Coconut Oil, Sandalwood powder & Fragrance Oil Blend

My Experience:

I love using handmade soaps and was super excited to try out this soap when i came across the Facebook page of Camelia's Natural & Handmade Bath & Body Treats. Since it was a new brand and my skin is sensitive i chose to try out just one soap in my first order. I love the fragrance of roses and so i picked this one up. But with the stock load of soaps i already had i used this almost a month after the order reached me.

The soap was smaller than what i expected but i cut into 4 pieces like i usually do with any handmade soap. The reason i cut any handmade is that since they do not contain chemicals they tend to melt faster than the usual soaps. Cutting them into smaller pieces just increases their longevity. It lasted me almost 3 weeks :)

The fragrance had died down a bit since i kept it away for a month, but it still had the lingering smell of roses. This soap is filled with the goodness of so many amazing natural ingredients. It was a delight to use this soap. The soap kept my skin moisturized. The best part about this soap was that it lathered up so well.

All in all i was happy with my purchase and the next time round i ordered 4 soaps :P

Do check them out on FACEBOOK if you would like to try out some of their handmade soaps!

My Favourite Lipsticks From Rimmel London - Heartbreaker, Kate Moss No.22 and Amethyst Shimmer : Review Swatches & LOTD

Hi Girls,

Today I'm going to share with you my three favorite lipsticks from Rimmel London. All three are from the lasting finish range, one shade is from the Kate Moss Range. The shades that i own are Heartbreaker, Kate Moss No.22 and Amethyst Shimmer. Will share a little bit about each lipstick!

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Heartbreaker:

Heartbreaker is a very pretty berry pink shade. This shade is the most used among the three i own. I was super obsessed with this shade in the middle and used it almost everyday. It's a very unique shade and will suit all skin tones. Superb pigmentation - one swipe is all you need to get a full color pay off. Keeps the lips moisturized and stays on for about 4 hours.
LOTD : Heartbreaker in natural light

LOTD : Heartbreaker -  indoors

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Kate Moss No. 22:

Kate Moss No. 22 is a bright blue based red with a slight tinge of pink. I very rarely wear red lipsticks but you gotta own at least one red shade so i chose to pick up a budget red lipstick. One swipe is all you need to cover pigmented lips. It's not moisturizing but it doesn't make my lips feel dry as well. stays on my lips for about 4- 5 hours.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Amethyst Shimmer:

Amethyst Shimmer is a dark berry shade with abundance of purple shimmer in it. The colour varies depending on hoe pigmeneted your lips are. It looks completely on my mom and my moms lips. My mom loves this shade for than me. honestly im not a fan of shimmer lipsticks so i don't pick this shade too often. You need two swipes to cover pigmented lips completely. stays on for about 4 hours. This shade is definitely for the night.

Rs.250 for 4 grams

Final Views:

I think these lipsticks are quite a steal at the price they retail at. Rimmel has a wide range of colours which you can pick from according to your liking. They stay on for about 4 hours and have pretty good pigmentation.

Have you used Rimmel London lipsticks before? Which is your favourite from the three i own? Should i try any other color which you have used? Do let me know in comments below!
