halloween shoot
craziest Halloween photoshoot ever

Here comes my most well timed post ever! Its been almost a fortnight since Halloween and here I’m (no I did write a Halloween nail art post last week). The thing is I forgot to charge my camera tat day and these photos were taken my a friend so just got my hands on them or maybe 8 days ago.

It all started on a random whatsapp discussion that we will ask everyone to turn up in black from tip to toe. Believe me even that was difficult so anything more than that wouldn’t have worked! I even planned of gothic eye makeup, orange lips, pale face but sanity prevailed. I didn’t expect much of enthusiasm but boy all of
them surprised me. Almost half of the Mba batch was all black. I didn’t have a cool blact Tshirt so stole my brother’s Metallica Tshirt which I got him from ebay. My other 2 friends wore their bro’s Tshirts too! Can you tell I’m wearing trousers and not jeans….nobody could.

So after college all the dark people stayed back for photos. Have a look!

Oh wait you recognize me right? New readers I’m the one on the extreme left in the below photo. Yes the one with those blood thirsty eyes.

You see the girl on extreme right? That’s San. You must have seen her outfits on Starlets On The Streets. Yes I know you couldn’t imagine her like this.

scary girls
the EYES!

For the left photo we were trying the torch below our chin thing but didn’t work!

spooky nails
Spooky nails

Yes we did our nails too. While the other two did some spooky nail art, I went for the neon green effect. No they don’t glow in the dark…..how I wish! I’ve written a separate post on that ghostly nail art.

Slipknot Tshirt

This guy Tanuj is a BIG time Slipknot fan. He keeps sending me their Youtube links which I never watch! But that Tshirt was something. Every lecturer that day did a double take.

While we all were clad in black this guy Jappi went one step ahead and turned up as an angel. Even his turban and shoes were white. Good to see people actually took all that Halloween stuff seriously!

The girlies! You see that girl with the bird’s eye view, she was carrying a Lady Gaga tote!

Their are hundreds of picture but that’s it for now! So that was how my college showed the spirit considering some of them had presentations that day! What about you? Did anything interesting that day?

L’Oreal Infallible Lipstick in Tender Berry Review, Swatches
A few days back when I opened my lipstick drawer, it was kinda surprising to see that all my lipsticks belong to the same colour families. All I had was similar shades but from different brands! And the colours that dominated were MLBBs, nudes, corals and reds. A girl can never have enough pink lipsticks and I want none! Pinks and Mauves are shades I don’t wear…coming from a girl, shocking? But recently I found a pale pink which is my latest crush!

L'Oreal Infallible Lipstick in Tender Berry


L’Oreal Claims: Infallible Le Rouge stays fresh and vibrant looking for up to 10 hours without feeling sticky, tacky or dry. Enriched with Vitamin E for moisture and Ceramide 5 for conditioning, Infallible Le Rouge applies evenly without flaking or fading out.

The new Infallible Le Rouge formula is based on L’Oréal’s Colour Bond Technology that features a flexible network that captures and fixes colour on lips. This is made possible by an association of adhesive polymers that allows for the longevity of the lipcolour, as well as sillicon micro spheres that ensure only the richest lipcolour will be left on a woman’s lips.

L'Oreal Infallible Lipstick

The Colour: Tender Berry is a cool toned lilac mauve with hints of pink. The pigmentation is really good. Below you see one single swipe and see how pigmented it is. It goes opaque in one swipe and you get a blast of pale pink mauve. Being cool toned, I expected it to wash out my nc37 skin but it brightens it up. I was always into corals and nudes. Mauve was a colour I could never make myself to wear but this one has started a love affair I guess! As a rule people with warm tones should wear warm lipstick shades but cool toned lipsticks if carried well can surprise you, in a good way ofcourse.

Quality, Texture and Longevity: The range has 30 shades with a mix of different finishes. Some are matte, others lustre and this one creamy matte. With just one swipe you get full pigmentation and the creaminess to match it. Despite being a long lasting formula, it is non drying. But if you have dry flaky lips I sugest you wear a thin coat of lip balm under it. I wore it in the day and the color was still intact when I got home…so I can safely say it stays on for around 7-8 hours on me. Also, it glides on easily without flaking up and never settles into the fine lines of lips. This is one of the best long staying lip colours I’ve tried in a long time. Also, the bullet has this thin diameter which makes it very easy to apply the lipstick straight from the tube, even beginners can get it right the first time without messing up.

The lipstick case is sturdy and closes with a ‘clicckkkk’ which relieves you of it messing up in your bag but it is bulky. Also, if you have a few more of these then it gets difficult to distinguish them in your vanity without looking at the labels. At this price, I would expect a little more good-to-look-at packaging.

I’ve already reviewed a sheer metallic orange from this range (click on the link)

So is it for you? Yes if you are looking for a mauve that’s not too plum and has enough amounts of cool pink in it to brighten up your complexion and look neat. If you are afraid of mauves, then this can be a safe option. The formula is top notch and stays on for 7-8 hours with meals in between and doesn’t flakes and dries your lips. It is one of those good quality long lasting lip colors available in the market.
