My sister's birthday gifts

Birthday gifts for an amazing sister!

Hello, Ladies! 🙂

Today’s post is going to be a bit different. It will still be about beauty and makeup and products but not the usual reviews that I do. Today’s post is all about the gifts I got for my beautiful sister on her birthday! Ritika my sister, celebrated her 15th birthday on the 17th of April, 2016. I was very excited as this is one of the most special days in my life and obviously the most special in hers. It was the birthday of my little sister. All of you who has a brother or a sister will know the feeling.

The problem was that I didn’t know what to get her. I did know about quite a few products that she liked but I wanted to be accurate. Since I was planning for that day for a long time, I had a lot of time in my hands to decide on the present. I, very tactfully managed to get the word out of her mouth without spilling the beans about the gifts after which, I made a list. I mostly purchased the gifts online from Amazon and Nykaa and I surprised her! So, I present to you, Birthday gifts for an amazing sister!

Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow Raspberry & Cherry
(L to R) : Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow Raspberry & Cherry

Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow 

This is one of those range of products that ranks very high on my list of “cutest products” and my sister is in love with these beauties! I want to steal em’ back from her  🙁  On second thoughts, I am sure she is going to let me use it  😛 Both these lip balms are hydrating and keeps your lips super soft.

Raspberry: A Beautiful glossy shade of berry pink with a candy flavor that will drag you back to your childhood memories (that is if you are not already in your childhood days 😛 ). This product has a very good color payoff and is a girly shade.

Cherry: A highly pigmented shade and probably one of the cutest in the Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow range, the Cherry is another girly color. This is a soft pink and glossy shade, but with red undertones.


Nykaa Nail Enamel

Nykaa Nail Enamel 

My sister wanted a few of the nail enamels from the Nykaa Nail Enamel range. I have already done a post on Nykaa Nail Enamel Lavender Buttercream which you can check out. My sister and I were both fascinated by this new collection from Nykaa. I have never purchased something from the “Nykaa” brand before (I have purchased products from other brands at Nykaa) but my sister is very happy with her new nail paints and so am I.

Marsala Chai: This a beautiful dark shade that looks perfect on my sister. The Nykaa Nail Enamel Marsala Chai is one of those beautiful shades that suits every complexion.

Rose Sherbert: A beautiful soft pink color that has “girly” written all over it. This is not your blood red rose shade that you see in the garden, but a beautiful mixture of the softness of rose and the lightness of sherbert.

Lavender Buttercream: I have already done a post on Nykaa Nail Enamel Lavender Buttercream that you can check out. This is undoubtedly one of the best nude shades I have seen.


Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation

Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation

Maybelline Color Sensational is an amazing range from Maybelline. I love the bold matte shades of Orange and Red that I have given my sister as she already had a fetish for this collection. The lip colors have great pigmentation and are buttery soft on the lips

Orange 230: Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation Orange 230 is beautiful summer shade that complements all skin tones. This product is highly pigmented and extremely smooth on the lips.

Red 800: A beautiful muddy red, the Red 1 has an amazing color payoff. The product is super easy to wear and the color is a deeper (crimson) shade of red.


Maybelline Lipsticks
(L to R): Maybelline ColorShow Madly Magenta & Maybelline Color Sensational Glam 6

Maybelline ColorShow Lipstick Madly Magenta

The “Madly Magenta” is a stunning plum shade that is bold yet not overwhelming. This shimmery lip color is already one of her favorites and so is mine!

Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Polish – Glam 6

Glossy and intensely pigmented. Need I say more? Well if you insist, the Glam 6 is also very moisturizing and the applicator is efficient and easy to use.

Conclusion

Whew! I thought the list would never end. But wait, birthday and no card? Now is that fair?

Happy Birthday to the world's most amazing sister
