5 Beauty Products I am ‘Utterly Butterly’ in Love with…

When it comes to picking up the Beauty Products aka cosmetics….. I get real greedy! Just can’t stop myself with one, specially if that one product is “the mighty LIPSTICK“!!! Being a true Leo to my traits, I love BOLD; My man calls me that’s your second name…. however, when it comes to make-up I am a subtle person (except lipsticks)

A daily dose of Kajal and a lite dab of colored lip balm and I am good to go, but when the occasion calls for getting ready…. I mean really ready, vibrant stock of all lovey-dovey things are not far. So, here is my list of 5 beauty products I am totally in LOVE with.

5 Beauty Products I am Thankful to

1. Call of Healthy Skin – Moisturizer:


Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF 15 

More than the call of beauty, this one is a necessity, daily wear n tear of skin requires a generous amount of caressing. I trust Neutrogena Oil-Free daily moisturizer with SPF 15, this work wonders if you have sensitive & oily skin. This is my daily regime partner since many years now.




2. Eyes Love some Drama:


I love expressive eyes, the kind of drama you can create by just applying Kajal, winged or illustrative, smokey or bold so many different ways of flaunting your beautiful eyes. At times I double up my Kajal pencil as an Eye-Liner, by drawing a line (thin or thick) along with the upper eye-lid. Liquid Liners are just not my cup of tea 😉 Faces, MAC, Maybelline, L’Oreal, Oriflame you get a huge variety of Kajal from any of these trusted brands but my pick has always been LAKME.

3. Nail Paints:

Maybelline-Nail-Polish-Color-ShowRevlon Nail Paint

Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue Don’t Forget There is Purple too….Rainbow colors on my Nails Too…

Nail Paints are a my weakness, I love tiny sparkly bottles of vibrant colors…. and confess of having a huge collection of nail paints too. Before my daughter was born, I followed a strict regime of changing my nail paints every weekend…but then they say once you have a baby, life changes drastically. I am no exception to it, today applying nail paints means having a full time debate on “WHY I CAN NOT APPLY NAIL PAINT ON YOUR NAILS” and again repeating it every time she sees my painted nails. My favorite nail enamel brand is Revlon & Maybelline.

4. Fragrances:

Elizabeth Arden

Elizabeth Arden’s Sunflower

Who doesn’t love fragrances? I am a huge fan of floral, summery, springy – breezy kind of fragrances which are not ‘on the face‘ hard but leaves a beautiful trail of romance behind. My all time favorite Perfume brand is, ‘Elizabeth Arden‘ have been using it since my college days. Names changed with time but brand remains the same. Sunflower, Green Tea, 5th Avenue, Provocative Women, you name it and I love it. My life partner says, “it’s very easy to bring you a gift; just ask which is latest in Elizabeth Arden’s and you are set” 😉 I really don’t mind..



5. I kept LAST for the BEST – Lipsticks:


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

My First LOVE – L.O.V.E in capital letters! I am a hoarder of lipsticks; not guilty Mi Lord!! I love collecting lipsticks but still feel I don’t have any NICE shade to wear. Have them in almost all possible color (related to me) Pinks, Nudes, BrownsREDssss, Coral, Plum…. but I pick up only those lipsticks which are good and healthy plus have a valid shelf life of one year. Once, lipstick starts smelling foul throw them away. Many brands have come up with vegetarian lipsticks and 100% natural ingredients. SoulTree has a good variety in natural & organic lipsticks. I have lipstick vanity in the range of:

L'Oreal Lipsticks

L’Oreal Pure Red Series

Maybelline Lip Gradation where in you can apply the color and then smudge within your lip skin, it lasts long and looks just perfect. Maybelline Baby Lips Candy lip balms for everyday usage, healthy moisturizer with light pinch of color. Revlon super lustrous lipsticks, Maybelline color show lipsticks,  L’Oreal Paris pure reds, Oriflame Gold Jewel Creamy Lipstick… these all brands pamper you to not only make you beautiful but also to make you feel confident & wonderful.

Hope you like my list of best 5’s… Linking this post with four beautiful ladies AmritaTinaDeepa and Mayuri for the prompt #ThankfulThursdays

      Right Amrita, your post talks in detail about the shelf life of beauty products…which is indeed very important. I remember how my mom had this habit of saving her fav shades of lipsticks for ages and on my every visit to her I wud sneak them off from her boxes to throw out immediately. Thanks for reading and your feedback.

    Oh! That was one cool list. And am indeed a fan of lipsticks. A mild lipstick and kajal can give the glow and keep u fresh. With the overnumbered brands in market choosing the right beauty product which is chemical-free and is of lesser harm is quite challenging these days.

    • Gleefulblogger says:

      Thanks Janani, so true with the range of products available in market today not to forget the counterfeit, it’s so essential to pick the best of the bests. Thanks for stopping by and connecting.

    Loved the round up of all your favourite products. Loved the last one exceptionally the lipstick. Do tell me the shade number would love to buy. I am big fan of Elizabeth Arden Mediterranean.

    • gleefulblogger says:

      Hey Rakhi definitely… I am so glad you liked the post and yes the shade. I don’t shy myself calling Lipstick hoarder for the very same reason. Thank You for reading and liking.

    I am definitely​ not a makeup person but fragrances, kajal and nail colours re my best friends since forever. Just like u, and a lot of other mom’s, my nail colours died an untimely death because of kids.. but the day I can resume, I’ll keep a big stash ready!!

    • gleefulblogger says:

      heheh… true dear, my days of big stash have been taken over by my little miss now. All I have now are zillion shades of PINK 😉
