The Maybelline Super Stay 24

With the festive (and wedding) season in full swing around us, a lot us want to rock bold looks that can go well with any of our outfits. And what better than a classic red lipstick to add that classy yet vixen-like edge?

Hence, here’s a REALLY quick review on one of my personal favourites – the Maybelline Super Stay 24 hour lipstick – in shade Keep Up The Flame. Of course, they have plenty of other shades to choose from, but this post is about their red – quite possibly the best shade in their range.

Packaging – The packaging of the lippy is quite nice, its easy to carry around and fits quite well into your average makeup or emergency pouch. Since it’s also clutch friendly, the packaging gets an 8.5/10

Consistency – The liquid of the lip stain itself is super smooth and glides on quite well, even on un-moisturized lips. Not that you should, ideally, but sometimes – in a hurry, all of us are guilty of just swiping the stain on without any prep. Being versatile enough to get you through such times too, the consistency gets 8/10.

Longevity – This lipstain is made from the Blood of the Gods. True to its name of “Super Stay” and the claim to last 24 hours, I know that my trial lasted for about 18 hours and the entire time, it stayed on. I had to reapply it once after my meal though – but that is because I eat like a toddler (not your fault, Maybelline!). What stayed, though was impeccably smooth and did not smear the least. 9/10 for longevity.

Finesse – The lipstain in itself is matte and for those who want a glossy finish, there’s an additional lip gloss stick at the other end of the cleverly made packaging that you can apply and reapply as often as you need to – to maintain your gloss. Overall, 8.8/10 for finesse.

Bird’s Eye View – In all, if you’re someone who doesn’t want to or cannot understand all the details given above; and are looking for the gist of what this reviewer thinks (pardon me, but I’m also guilty of speed-reading through most articles and therefore, feel ya buddy!), here it is:

Summing up, this is a great cosmetic to have in your collection. Reliable, beautiful anf easy to use; this is quite an easy choice, even for gifting. Make-up junkies will love it as much as amateurs and so will the gifter. Priced at Rs. 650 and readily available online (I bought mine from Nykaa). And thus, it’s a neat 9/10 red lipstain.

Until next time, folks!

A Chritmas Day & A Very Happy Belly :)

Nestled amidst commercial and residential properties alike, the Happy Belly Bakes cafe and bakery will probably go unnoticed – unless you’re a Josephite or Know what you’re looking for. Needless to say, this dainty little eatery in the heart of the city is a surprising spot of peace and quiet, despite being just metres away from the busiest roads of Bangalore. Keep reading – you can thank me at the end of this post 😀 

With a very cozy ambience and the comforting ‘feel good factor’ from the moment you step in, Happy Belly has some phenomenal food to keep up with the lovely setting. Cupcakes, pastries, chocolates and even all day breakfast – I know that I’ve found another to add to my list of favourite spots in the city. 

Given that the festivities in the air are in themselves a beautiful touch to an already beautiful little bakery, they certainly add to the charm of this little corner of Bangalore that most people forget about – or don’t know of – in terms of existence. 

Not dwelling too long on why you should give this place a shot if and when you’re in Bangalore, this post shall end soon. I’m not going to tell you to invariably pay Happy Belly Bakes a visit. I won’t tell you how much of a loss it will be of you don’t. 

In all honesty, I wouldn’t be willing to share this place if I was any meaner than I am.. but because it’s Christmas and this little cafe deserves to be known; look up Happy Belly – and send me something from them as a symbol of eternal gratitude. I agree, you’re welcome.

Also, Merry Christmas! ^_^
