Beauty Queen on a Budget | Summer '14

After the wonderful response I received when I started the Beauty Queen on a Budget [BQOAB] series here, I knew I had to take it forward. It is quite an interesting process researching and reviewing the products that I finalize for my top picks and my favourite part is sharing that with you lovelies because, hey, don't we all love a good lipstick or mascara that does an exceptional job and fits our budget too!

This time, I shall be sharing my favorite beauty products that fit the bill for the summer season and are all under Rs.400 so your shopping can be guilt free!

Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick in Coral Pink

This lipstick was a winner right from the very beginning. Besides just being a shade of bright pink with a fair hint of coral; this lipstick is glossy and moist, keeping your lips moisturized enough for you not to need a lip balm underneath. For the current season, it can brighten many a summer look and you can see it on me here

Lakme Eyeconic in White | Avon Glimmersticks Brights in Cobalt Cool

Lakme's Eyeconic range is a force to be reckoned so when the wildly popular range launched a first of its kind white eyeliner in the Indian beauty market, the hype surrounding it was massive. The white liner, with its fair amount of shimmer and creamy texture, works well as a highlighter on areas on the face that catch the light. When used with a light hand on the lower waterline, can brighten the eyes greatly. However, its creamy texture can lead to crumbling on the lashes and breakage but since it is the first in its category; this one gets a thumbs up from me.

Bright eyeliners became all the rage this year so this Avon Glimmerstick in Cobalt Cool was a great addition to the makeup stash for both somber and funky looks. I have reviewed the Avon Glimmerstick in detail and have even created 2 tutorials with the above two liners here

Sunsilk Natural Recharge Shampoo

I've been raving about this shampoo and using it regularly for very good reason. Not only does it have a lovely fragrance but it keeps all its promises at a fantastic price. You can check my detailed review of the shampoo over here

Lotus Herbals 3-in-1 Matte Look Daily Sunblock

And how can any summer list be complete with a good sunscreen recommendation? With UVA and UVB protection, a tinted formula, a matte finish and suitability to all skin types, what doesn't this sunscreen do! With a thumbs up from me, no wonder it was also featured in the previous BQOAB edition too!

So I do hoped you like this edition of BQOAB because I've had a blast putting it together! Since it is still new and needs its tweaks, I would love to know what you think and if you've got any recommendations or products for the next in the series!
