This is Kra Shopping Experience : Website review

3.1.23 0 Comments
It's on very rare occasions that I talk about products that are on the outer periphery of my personal choice of beauty, makeup and home decor and perhaps never about Men's fashion and styling. So I heard about this brand This is Kra, men's clothing website that has as trendy a collection as its name and got to try a few clothes from them.

To begin with the whole website has such a youthful and fresh vibe to it. The collection is predominantly street style and chic and I'm sure guys are going to love it.

About This is Kra:
Krá has been operating under the radar and now it’s finally coming out of the shadows to make fashion unrestricted and unabashed, globally.

Operating as a 'Speakeasy' (exclusive & underground), it quickly became a symbol of disruption and individuality among subcultures that represent the STREET.

Shopping Categories at This is Kra:

Their collection is broadly categorised into Topwear, Bottomwear and Outerwear which is further classified into Hoodies, shirts, jackets, tshirts, singlets, joggers, shackets, shorts etc.
Their collection showcases their passion towards emerging subcultures which include gaming, hip-hop, street-football, graffiti & building the community.

My Experience:
I got tshirt and joggers from their website and I'm really happy with the quality they provide at this price point. The fabric is good quality and comfortable to wear. I waited to wash the clothes atleast once before writing this review and I must say the clothes haven't lost their lustre. None of the items bled or shrank. 
My son loved all the pieces and that makes me happy !!

I find This is Kra to be an amazing place for young men to explore and buy trendy clothes with good quality at a very discounted price 
Do go through their returns, refunds, cancellations and shipping policy when you make a purchase :)

Hummel Shoe Review : If You Choose Both Style and Comfort

6.12.22 1 Comments

I recently got a chance to try sport shoes from the brand Hummel. Before making a choice I wanted to research a bit about the brand itself and was amazed at the findings.

Established in 1923, Danish sports brand hummel has a long history within the international sportswear industry. Headquartered in Aarhus, Denmark the hummel mission is to CHANGE THE WORLD THROUGH SPORT based on a unique Company Karma philosophy that strives to balance running a profitable business, while maintaining a high degree of social responsibility. hummel designs, produces and markets high quality clothes and sports equipment, as well as fashion and leisure sportswear for both adults and children. hummel is privately owned and part of the Thornico Group.

 Variety 

Hummel has a good variety of shoes for both men and women. Most of their collection appeared unisex increasing the wearability factor. They come in many colours and designs to suit us all. This particular shoe is a unisex one as well and currently I and my son have a similar shoe size and it works for the both of us.

Design 


I'm a fan of white sports shoes. They always look so stylish and go with almost anything you wear...be it denims, dresses or sarees. Thus I chose this white and black chevron shoe and I'm very happy with what I got. I like to wear sports shoes with not just sports wear and western outfits but with my Indian wear too including sarees. Trust you me , it's not even "comfort over style" because with Hummel shoes it's both comfort and style...such a win-win...isn't it!!


Comfort 


Comfort is the reason why heels get overlooked and sports shoes take a front seat. It's THE major factor before choosing your kinda shoe ,if not the only factor. It's a myth that you should wear comfortable shoes only if you're into sports or lead an active lifestyle that includes gyming, running or exercise of some sort. Fact is, one should wear comfortable shoes irrespective of your activity level and lifestyle.

I am super amazed to see how light weight this shoe is. It's like you're wearing nothing in your feet and yet you're comfy. The mesh makes it such a breather...no more sweaty , stinky feet you guys... !!

I am exhilarated with this Hummel Legend Breather Shoe If walking on clouds had been real, the shoe would've been this one.

Favourites From Faces Canada :Foundation, Concealer, Lipstick, Nail polish

5.8.22 1 Comments
I have used Faces Canada products in the past and have always loved them but there were a few cult favourites that I always wanted to try and never got my hands on for some reason or the other. This time I made sure to do a little haul and get a look and feel of them.
Let's head on and check what's in my kitty:

If you're someone who likes light weight foundations and if you dig in for a dewy finish and glowy look, you are on the right page...Please read on!!
Faces Canada Ultime Pro Second Skin Foundation has a great packaging. It comes in a frosty glass bottle with a dropper dispenser. I like my tinted products coming in a dropper packaging for the amazing quantity control it gives. Also building up a product becomes easy in this.
It is by and large fragrance free, just a mild powdery scent that is not bothering at all.
It is a very runny foundation and when I say very, I mean VERY. But the good part is, this consistency makes it blendable.
It gives a sheer to medium coverage which actually looks very natural and beautiful. If you're looking for a full coverage foundation, then this is not THE one.
This shade Ivory is the first shade in this foundation and it's lighter on me. It would suit light skintones (not even light to medium)
All in all its a great foundation for people with dry skin and works really nicely in cooler weather days.

It comes in a very classy, black, frost glass bottle with product name in gold. It has a regular sponge applicator which is practical and mess free. The formula is creamy and it blends easily and gives a seamless finish. It is non drying and does not look streaky or patchy. It definitely has high coverage, it conceals dark circles and spot in perfections easily. The shade Sand Beige 01 has light peach undertones to it. I generally use a corrector before a concealer but with this concealer I skip the corrector for its undertones and coverage. 
It's a bomb concealer and I can already see myself re purchasing it.


Faces Canada Comfy Matte Lip Color - Fixed it For You
It is comes in a beautiful gold tube which is see through to make the shade detection easy. The application gives a good control to shape and fill my lips. It is the kind of packaging that looks luxurious when you take it out for touch ups. 
As the name goes it is "comfy matte". The formula is so lightweight that it feels like nothing on the lips, literally nothing. It claims to have natural oils in it which makes it so non drying for a liquid lipstick. It is absolutely transfer proof and the staying power is no where less than 5 hours. 
The shade FIXED IT FOR YOU is a gorgeous mix of berry and plum. Something that goes with any coloured outfit. It is comes opaque in a single swipe. It will suit all skin tones alike whether fair, medium, or light.

This is not something I am trying for the first time. I've already tried and loved multiple shades from this range. They are one of the most long lasting nail paints in my stash. The shades I got are Snow 146 and Marigold 129. Snow as the name goes is a beautiful white with gorgeous shimmer while Marigold is a very sweet and summery coral shade. They apply non streaky give a fabulous finish and go on without chipping for a long time.

Faces Canada is a cruelty free, made in India brand.

Take care
Aditi..

Lotus Botanicals Skin and Hair care Products Review

3.8.22 0 Comments
As the awareness of personal care has grown over the years so has the market for the products related to beauty, skin and hair care.
Altho the shopping sites and offline stores are flooded with beauty and skin care products, it is still hard to find a brand that works on clean and green principles. The first thing I noticed about the brand Lotus Botanicals is that it's products are paraben free, silicone free, sulphate free, mineral oil free and cruelty free.
So much goodness....how could I not try their products!!!! So I got my hands on a few of their products. Let's see how my experience has been using these for a while now.

It comes in a lovely pump packaging. The best thing is that it even locks the pump for any unnecessary spilage. It has a mild fragrance of fresh flowers. The texture of the face wash is somewhere between a cream and a gel and that makes it perfect for all skin types. It made my dry skin so hydrated as if I have applied a light moisturizer after it. It takes of the makeup residue without much effort and makes the face squeaky clean. By all means it is my current favourite face wash.

It comes in a practical and eco friendly glass pump bottle. The face moisturizer has a smooth and creamy formula. It has a mild floral fragrance. It also has SBA 20 PA+++
It claims to be a light weight formula, boosts Radiance, repair and hydrates. It also claims to be good for all skin types but I think dry skin girls like me will need something extra in terms of hydration. The best discovery was that it surprisingly minimised my pores to some extent giving my skin smoother appearance. It is non comedogenic


It comes in a jar packaging. It smells beautifully of jasmine which is very calming. The texture of the youth Radiance cream is buttery smooth. It gets absorbed in the skin easily and moisturizes it. Once you apply it , you will feel the hydration sunk in to your skin. I like how luxurious it feels on skin and my skin totally loves it.

It comes in a see through pump packaging. It's consistency is really thick. Like really really thick. I had to take it in my palm and add some water to it to emulsify it and apply. It made the scalp and hair strands really clean. It did not dry out my hair. I really wish it was not so thick though. All in all its a good shampoo.

My experience so far with Lotus Botanicals has been good. They provide really good products without burning a hole in our pocket.

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach

21.7.22 1 Comments
Makeup is all about hiding our flaws and accentuating our best features. 
In my case, I like to cover the darkness around my eyes and mouth and also a few spots and blemishes on my face. A concealer alone doesn't fully cover the darkness. If used alone, it leaves dark shadows and hinders the brightening up of under eyes. 
Here comes the work of correctors. Peach correctors work nicely in combating the darkness. The one in loving recently is the Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach

Packaging
It comes in a tub packaging. I personally prefer bullet ones to avoid digging in fingers everytime.

Texture
It is very creamy in texture. This makes it very nicely blendable. It hydrates the under eye area that generally gets dry easily. Foundation and concelar sit very smoothly over it.

Shade
The shade is peach and it beautifully covers the darkness. It has just the right amount of warmth in it. In case you have intense dark circles, this might not work for you. For very deep dark circles, you need orange corrector.

Over all thoughts
It's a beautiful corrector that is non drying and super blendable. But I find it too pricey for it's goodness. It retails for 3400/- for 1.4 gm of product which is quite expensive.

It is available on Nykaa, Myntra and Bobbi Brown's own website.
