Gel Liners Review

Umm, it is obviously unexpected of me to blog about beauty, or cosmetic products to be precise! But ah! What the hell, it is necessary to present well, and well well why not help the world with your experiences! šŸ˜›

I love eye makeup and that’s the only thing I love to experiment with! My skin is sweat prone and my lifestyle a bit rough, so when I am buying kohl/eyeliner I want it to be long lasting and that is the toughest find ever! Since the time I saw a video tutorial of different lining styles, I was totally attracted to gel liners and had also read that they are long lasting!

I asked at my regular local cosmetic shop and he showed me a few, though Maybelline had some good reviews I was worried to spend some 400+ bucks, as I had no idea if I’m comfortable with gel liners in the first place. So I went for the cheaper deal and bought the vov eyeliner gel for 250 +/- 25 rupees.

I realised I was comfortable with the gel liner, but VOVĀ had it’s problems. So when I got an Oriflame catalog I looked up for some of it’s Studio Artist Gel Eyeliner reviews and decided I would go for it! A bit expensive, almost double the price of VOVĀ but now I can totally say worth every penny!

Below is a comparative review of both these liners!

When you look at the small containers both are equally cute! VOVĀ doesn’t come in a box unlike Oriflame. The application brush for VOVĀ is long with sharp tip whereas for the oriflame it is short and a cross-edged one. I like both of them, it’s fun and creative with either or both!


The colour for VOVĀ is jet black and the consistency shiny and smooth like butter. Oriflame is a little less black, very little! And consistency a little waxy. Might be a challenge for people who are not comfortable with brushes but the edged brush makes it a tad bit easier!

So far VOVĀ has posed no problems, but it lacks in the exact same property I want it to stand out! Yes, long lasting! It hardly lasts, but not just that, it gets smudged and spreads all over your face, especially if your hair flies over your face, and you take your hand to your face many times in a day! Spoils the look and your mood! Whereas oriflame is just the opposite! It dries off, doesn’t smudge and stays easily for 12hrs or maybe more!! That’s the best part of oriflame liner! Totally value for money, because finding a Ā product so lasting is a gift! As you can see in the image, the difference is obvious!

So if you have long working hours, and are searching for the best staying liner, Oriflame Studio Gel Eyeliner wins hands down! Not just for gel liners are concerned, but also compared to most liquid liners and kohl pencils, this would be my first preference any day!


The day my son went viral

Reality bites! We need to be careful! Must read!!!

Put the book back on the shelf

UntitledA couple of months ago my son, who is six years old, performed a solo routine at his school talent competition. I couldnā€™t attend but my wife filmed it on her mobile phone so I could watch it later. She also put it on Facebook for friends and relatives to see. Unfortunately, we hadnā€™t given any thought to the privacy settings and it was ā€˜sharedā€™ amongst people we didnā€™t know. When we became aware of this we quickly changed the permissions and forgot all about it.

However, one morning, a few days later, we received a text from a friend telling us that the video was ā€˜trendingā€™ on Buzzfeed and, as we hastily conducted some Google searches, it became apparent that we had a problem. There were bizarre stories about it on sites such as Huffington Post and Mail Online and these were being replicated around the world. Additionally, theā€¦

A testimonial to orkut!

In this dynamic little world of ours, we can’t even sit and list the number of networking site a generation must’ve seen. Well for me it all started off with hi5! I don’t really remember how it was, yet there it was, my first step in the social networking world.


It went on with me registering for a few more, but the most distinct in my memory is of course ‘orkut’. It was gaining popularity amongst people too fast. There was eventually a point, where almost everyone had an orkut account. Many of it’s features shared a love-hate relationship with the users like the scrapbooks, communities, etc. From features upgrading like uploading an album of photos, to features that won’t let anyone save your photos by a simple right click! We saw all of it! From the blue theme to themes with colours, it was as if it was growing with us, till it came to a point, that it didn’t. Yet we kept on growing, and so did our hunger for change!Ā And as soon as we got a totally dynamic profile, orkut was left in a corner totally ignored!

But there was one feature which stood out and always will for me, the testimonials! Before I deleted my orkut account 4 years back I copy pasted that bit in a text document to hold it close to my heart! Not just those written for me, they surely do bring a smile on my face, but also those I wrote for someone, making us realize of all those special moments we had with people closest to us!

I’m happy as I cherish few of my friends made over orkut, and all those weddings I’ve attended of people who met over orkut! It has been wiped off but, this little farewell, or let’s say a testimonial is a way of saying, you will always be remembered šŸ™‚

The need to evolve!!

This here is just a shift from blogger to wordpress! Trying to keep up with the ever dynamic e-world! A friend suggested, and well nothing else could convince me more!

The address has changed, but the writer and the words remain the same!

Hoping to get all the love here as well!
