OOTD Outfit of the Day and Travel to Shimla Manali
Today’s post is a bit different. It has some outfits, food and travel pics which I wanted to share with you guys. We had recently traveled to Shimla, Manali & Dharamshala (mini Tibet). This vacation was a two in one kind of holiday. Last month was my first wedding anniversary and we also wanted to do something special for valentine’s day this time. Hence, the trip. Also I found these interesting Redbus coupons at CupoNation with which I could save a lot on my trip.
Happy new year to all my lovely blog readers and followers.I will be announcing 500+ Followers Giveaway Winners in this post. First of all let me apologize for the delay in announcing winners. As, I mentioned on Facebook, I was sick after new year and wasn’t able to put this post up.
As many of you know, we have crossed 500 followers on Facebook and Google+. I was planning on doing a 500 Followers Giveaway for a long time now. For some reason, it got delayed. As, I was so busy with other things. Anyways here it is now.
Hair Mask Basics:
For those of you who do not know what a hair mask is. Its Basically a deep conditioning treatment richer and thicker than your average hair conditioner. Its is meant to be used after shampooing your hair just like a hair conditioner. But since its very rich, its meant to be used only once a week. If you have dry, damaged and frizzy hair and if a hair conditioner doesn’t do much for you, try using a hair mask instead of conditioner.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup Review
What Estee Lauder Claims:15-hour staying power, Medium, buildable; SPF 10. This worry-free, long-wear foundation makeup stays fresh, looks natural, even through nonstop activity. Glides on silky smooth, absorbs oil.
Coverage – Medium to Full and buildable. Finish – Matte Wear time – Long wearing. Best suitable for – Oily to Combination skin. Sun Protection – SPF 10.
I was looking for a long-wearing, matte foundation for my wedding. And narrowed my search to 2 choices – Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place or Mac prolong wear foundation. I first went to the MAC counter, But the staff at inorbit just put me off. So instead i went to the Estee Lauder Counter, and she gave me shade 3W2 Cashew in Double Wear.
Just to let to know the shades actually look darker in the bottle and in swatch. But once you put it on your face, it looks way more light. Maybe next time i’ll go for a shade darker.
Anyways coming to the review, Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Foundation scores on all points but one.
It provides absolute full coverage in 2 layers, even to the most blemished skin.
Covers up most spots. I sometimes use it as a concealer.
It stayed on me for 12 hours. (That’s the maximum I’ve tested it for.)
Although I did powder my oily t-zone once.
It contains SPF 10, which made me pray that I don’t look like a white ghost in the wedding pics.
But hopefully they didn’t use the white flash for photography but other lights.
Here’s a picture of me in the wedding makeup.
This foundation doesn’t irritate my skin at all or cause any breakouts.
Mostly, anything i put on my skin tends to break me out but not this one.
But you need to scrub to remove it, as it doesn’t come off easily.
It blends better that Lotus Herbals Purestay Foundation, But you need to be quick. Dry skin people would need to avoid Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place, as it makes skin drier.
The foundation did not oxidise on me.
Below is a picture which shows the coverage.Their is no foundation on my fingers.
Available online on Snapdeal, Flipkart and Amazon
Did not oxidize on me.

Gives a white cast in flash photography.
Does not come with a pump dispenser.
Not suitable for dry skin.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup is a God-sent blessing for someone with oily to combination skin, looking for a matte, long wear and full coverage foundation.
