North Indian Summers can be hard and trying and with temperatures going up as high as 45 degrees Celsius . The weather is super hot and dry and the plushest of skins go through dry phases at times. I am quite glad that Za by Shiseido understood this need and launched a new line called Total Hydration which is supposed to soothe summer skin woes and it is NOT only for women with dry skin but a wide variety of other skin types as well. If you follow me on Instagram (@Agnibanya), you must have seen me post a picture of the range that I spotted last week at my nearest +NewU.in: H & B Stores Ltd. in Galleria Market, Gurgaon.
The Pink packaging was attractive to draw me to exploring the range and I took time to go through the product range and understand what each product is supposed to do. Finally picked up a Facial Mist and a Pore Gel from this range and it’s been a week that I’m using both and I have to tell you that for the first time , I’m enjoying products by Za. I had a bad experience with the Collagen Cream (Reviewed HERE) but finally my faith is restored in the brand especially because of the Pore gel. Would surely post a detailed review on that one very soon since it is such a hit with me
Za Total Hydration Energy Mist : Rs 549
Za Total Hydration Pore Care Essence : Rs 449
Next up, I went over to the makeup counters and picked up a shade called New York Scene from the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain Range. This was the shade I wanted when these stains were first launched in the US but when the line was released in India, this was not a part. It was recently introduced and I knew I just had to pick this one up. Moreover, it had been long that I had bought any lip product so …
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain New York Apple : Rs 725
And then there were these beautiful Go Graffiti Nail Polishes by Mauybelline that I have been desperately looking for at every beauty store in Gurgaon but none seemed to have stocked up on them. I tell you, the beauty scene over here in Gurgaon is just too bad, new launches take ages to reach this so called millenium city..
Anyway , Out of the 9 shades that have been launched here, I got 6. The sales girl was looking at me in a weird sort of way but its okay. When it comes to makeup, we are eccentric and we know that. Don’t we?
Btw, the nail polishes are just so cool and I am having a hard time resisting a mani change every evening. My favorite is Unmellow yellow with black hexes, in two sizes and fluorescent yellow with fine black dust in a transparent base. I wore it over a white base the other day and every girl at work kept asking me what was that I wore on my nails. Chic!!
Following are the six shades that I got , (Rs 145 each)
801 Flower power
802 Star Struck
806 Blueberry Bombshell
807 Blue Beats
808 Red Splatter
809 Unmellow Yellow
And lastly, if I am at NewU, a few pieces from their chic jewelry collection always makes way into my shopping basket.
Hope you liked my haul. I am quite excited about the Graffiti Nail Polishes, have you tried them yet? What are your favorites from the line?
P.S.: The vibrant envelope clutch in Orange and Pink is a GWP I got that day..That just makes me a little more happy
