All Good Scents: Chic & Tender
Daily perfumes are really important. But, when it’s brands such as Chanel and Bvlgari, it’s not easy to break out the scents for everyday use... well, not all of us can afford to. So, while they stay hidden at the back of your closet for special occasions, you still want a good scent for daily use. You don’t want to have to pay through your nose for it, or settle for a less-than-decent scent. It’s a tough line to tread, and I mostly settle for tried and tested brands. Luckily for All Good Scents, I ran out of daily perfume the day before these popped in. I started off with the neon-green Chic, which claims to be for the very stylish, and contains green apple and cedar. While the scent is light, airy and perfect for daily wear, it got a little too fruity for my taste after a while. However, of the two I received, this tested as the most popular amongst a few of us. Tender, on the other hand, is good for those who like a deeper scent. It’s one of those scents that you’ll either like or absolutely hate. Fortunately, I liked it. The mandarin notes with jasmine and lemon reminded me of old classics, which is probably why it won’t do well with some people. A fan of slightly older scents, I began to use this a little more frequently than Chic, though that one is good for a light day out. The scents are not stellar, but they last all day, which is great considering that they don’t cost half as much as most  perfumes! If you’re looking for an affordable daily buy, these fit right in.
Price Rs 750 onwards

Deborah Milano Velvet lipstick in shade 04
There are several brands that make crayon lipsticks and Deborah Milano is the newest one to jump on the bandwagon. I tried Shade 04, which is a dark purple shade that will flatter most Indian skin tones. The texture of the lipstick is buttery smooth and it glides on like a dream, offering opaque colour with just one swipe. Its finish is satin-matte, which is a personal favourite as it isn’t too dry, but doesn’t look shiny like a gloss either. It stays on for a good six hours, after which it evenly fades into a flattering stain. Also, the pencil-lipstick doesn’t tug on your lips or make it feel dry. It sits comfortably on your skin, without making your lips feel dry or stretched.
