be beautiful with punam

I am not the one who pays heed to body cleansers, bathing soaps or body wash, until they are not doing something different. I couldn’t notice what’s there on my rack .. That I am using for bath…

So you got it.. This one did something different, lets figure out it was good or bad..

This is my first product from ponds and my first bb cream.

be beautiful with punam

I don’t know why somehow I am never attracted to try bb creams and though this is my third experience with bb cream... but the other two I never bought I tried my mom’s Maybelline bb cream and Kiehls bb cream sample (reviews coming soon)
So officially this is my first purchase of bb cream.

Price: 69 INR for 9gm and 125 for 18 gm (very affordable)

Chambor Silver Shadow Compact "RR2 Rose Pale" (product review)

be beautiful with punam

As I am not the one who wears make up daily. I always wanted to use a compact that can be directly applied on sunscreen or moisturizer to get good coverage and oil control and then I discovered this great compact from Chambor that fulfilled my needs.

It’s a great compact for ladies who don’t prefer to wear foundation daily but need something for slight coverage.

Price: 895 INR for compact + a refill pack

Quantity: 16 g x 2= 32g

The extra refill is properly packed with the instruction behind to insert the refill in the casing.

I first remark on packaging. Visually it’s a feast for the eyes. The compact is small and handy. Slim and compact with the beautiful Chambor trademark rose on the cover. I like how they have standardized packaging. It’s not like brittle plastic and all. It looks like a gunmetal case...Fits the puff and mirror inside so you carry this around for the touch ups on the go.Puff is soft and application is easy and typical of any other compact.

Well I do like this powder. I use it as a finishing powder after I have put on my make up base and on daily basis I directly apply on my moisturizers and good to go.

It helps set my make up very well and makes it last longer.

Even when I apply it on my moisturizer it hides normal blemishes and my dark circles to good extent. It can be used alone over foundation.

It’s too humid here so I have also applied it on my bare face and it gives decent coverage and matte effect.

Controls my oil for 4-5 hours even in this humid weather of Bhopal. Even while travelling and in direct sun its effect lasted for 4-5 hours. After that my t zone was oily but not my whole face.

I have very oily and acne prone skin but it never broke me out.

It is oil free, non comedogenic and also has SPF.

It’s not chalky or pasty. It blends well with little effort and gives matte finish instantly.

RR2 is the shade meant for those who have fair skin with pink tone personally feel it may give whitish cast if I am not care full.

Shade selection: It’s available in 4 shades- rr1 ivorie, rr2 rose pale, rr3 sable, rr4 noistte.

On my bare eyes :

  • Texture is neither chalky nor pasty rather it’s smooth.
  • Blends easily and gives good coverage.
  • Can be worn alone over moisturizer and also on foundation, works best with both of them and even on bare face.
  • Controls oil and also water resistant.
  • Gives matte finish till 5 hours.
  • Non comedogenic and never broke my oily acne prone skin.


  • Limited shade selection
  • Contains parabens

Since I have got it I have loved it. It keeps my skin oil free and fresh. Hides my imperfection easily and highly.The best part is it is going to last long with the refill pack and also coz very little quantity is required. It’s a must have for oily skin beauties.

Some may feel it pricey but it’s worth it as very little quantity is required and it also contains refill pack.

Do leave your comments, they just make my day.

Uses Of Lemongrass Essential Oil (My experience)

When I got this essential oil from Fab India almost a year ago... I was just not aware of all its uses... I got it to make DIY talcum for my baby and I use it while I take bath, No doubt its fragrance is too good and lasts quite long...

Then I experiment with it and at times it turned well.

Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick "Trendsetter"(product review)

be beautiful with punam
Women are the one who want everything to last longer, rather forever…being its relation ship or favorite perfume or lipstick and when it comes to pink lipstick I can’t let it go...

be beautiful with punam

So I badly wanted to try a long lasting lipstick that doesn't make my lips sticky and uncomfortable and here I got this magic stick from Revlon color stay ultimate suede…named trendsetter.

Price : 650 INR for 2.55 gms

be beautiful with punam

It comes with a pretty sturdy stick with roll on mechanism which is of good quality .Cap always click lock at place and opens hassle free, so good when I am in hurry.

Revlon color stay ultimate suede is a bright raspberry pink... little close to fuchsia pink. The formula is supposed to last 16 hours, so once applied that’s you for the day.

To contradict the counter effect of long stay lipstick Revlon has added aloe and shea butter to add moisture.

When applied initially it’s really moisturizing and this is when the color is at its most vibrant. After 10-15 mins the formula starts to dry & loses its shine and vibrancy.

It has shine till it settles down, after that it becomes matte and little dry but it’s neither very sticky nor uncomfortable like other transfer resist lip colors. Isn’t it nice?

In terms of texture its creamy smooth and glides easily and softly.

In one swipe its bit sheer but color is build able. swatches here.

Coming to its most important thing for which I ran to buy it- its staying capacity which is really awesome. I applied it at 9 pm for party and came back at 2-30 am .It was there on my lips even after snacks, drinks and dinner, no touch ups …yippee

 I agree it lost its fresh finish but it dint fade. After that I slept wearing it being lazy and it’s was there on my lips till morning. It faded from the center of lips like most of the lipstick does.


  • Staying capacity without fading is around 6 hours.
  • Neither dry out lips nor make them sticky.
  • Good shade selection for all skin tones.


  • Availability in my city was not good; I wanted to get some more shades.
  • Doesn’t fulfill the claim of 16 hours..

On my lips initially:

After 4- 5 hours:

The color is little darker and brighter than how it appears in the lip swatches.

Over all it’s a best long stay lipstick I have tried yet. Even though it’s not sticky like other transfer resist long stay lip stick but you can still feel that you are wearing a lipstick. (Those who have dry lips may use balm underneath). At this price such staying power is really satisfactory and no doubt I loved the color because it instantly brightens my face.
