Bengaluru Beauty Banter

Yesterday, I happened to visit Lifestyle at Oasis Centre, Koramangla. Just wanted to share some beauty and makeup updates with my readers.  These are some of the beauty and make up brands that retail in Lifestyle:
Yves St.Laurent, Shiseido, Chanel, Christian Dior, Clinique, Kaya Skin Care, Lancome, Chambor, Maybelline, Max Factor, Revlon, Lakme.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Concealer are available in their counter. The SA in the their counter was quite helpful, though without much communication skills. She was ready to help by giving whatever possible information about the products. I tried all their foundations that were available in the counter.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
A very light foundation offering a little above-sheer coverage. The SA told it is buildable, but I did not try it in the shop. However, she gave me a sample to try at home.  Retails for around INR 920.
Mineral Matte Mousse Foundation
The consistency of the product is almost like Maybelline Mousse Foundation. It gives a medium matte coverage and works as a concealer too. But on the first application, I found it very drying and kind of cakey. Would have loved to give it a detailed try, but there were no samples available.
Bourjois Brush Foundation
A totally non oily foundation with sheer coverage and is buildable to medium. Spreads on the skin like a dream and blends in like almost a second skin. The best thing I noticed about this product is that it gives an excellent balance to the skin, making it neither cakey/dry nor oily. It comes with an in built brush and click mechanism. The tester was in a normal container and hence I could not check out the actual working. On a personal note, I loved this product. Planning to buy it sometime soon.
Retails for INR 1040.
Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner is now available in Maybelline counters in Bangalore.

As of now only black is available. It comes with a cute little applicator. It is a very creamy and intense black liner. Dries after a few minutes and stays put. The product claims to stay for 24 hours..But then who would risk keeping makeup while sleeping 😛
Retails for INR 325.
Detailed  review coming soon.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes through comments, M&B, emails and tweets. I had a wonderful day, which ended with a small outing and yummy Arabic dinner-complete with Falafel, Hummous, Pita Bread, Baba Ghanoush, Baklava and a double Black Forest Sundae for dessert 😉
