What to shop and what not to from Studio West – Westside

You all must be familiar with the Westside ‘s Studio West – their beauty joint. If you are used to visiting Westside then you must have bought few things from the Studio West. It happened to me also, I tried their almost all the products and here I am listing down what you must buy from Studio West and what you should not.

  1. Bath and body range:

You can buy their body lotions, shower gel, soaps, scrubs etc. Everything is good looking at prices of the products. You can blindly shop these products.2. Perfumes:

They have perfumes for male and female both. In this, they have a lot of fragrances and like I said earlier after wasting my money I have zeroed down to 2-3 items which are good for you. Females can try their Urban Muse, Maya while the males can try their Urban Spirit. These are the only fragrances which last for long hours. I have stocked my 3rd bottle of Muse and on me, fragrance stays for good 12 hours.

3. Lipsticks :

Don’t pick their Pure Passion collection, it doesn’t stay and keeps on smudging if you really want to pick a lipstick then go for Dynamite. This collection is really good with good lasting power. Opt for Dynamite collection for Nailpaints and lipsticks.4. Foundation :

Their foundations are really suitable for Indian skin tone, so you can pick from here only if you don’t find anything of your skin tone in Maybelline.

5. Eye Make-up:

You can opt for eye shadow palette and colored eye liners, they have really cool colors. Other than this do not go for mascara it doesn’t really do much to your eye lashes.

My take – you can go for fragrances (mainly EDP), bath and body products only.

New Whisper Ultra Soft 2x Softer Review

I saw this packet of Whisper Ultra Soft 2x Softer in a departmental store and I thought of trying this out. The line  “2x softer” drew my attention. I am one of those who is sensitive to synthetic covers, I prefer to use cotton base pads.

Whisper ultra (green one) has synthetic cover and that doesn’t suit me, so from long time I have been buying StayFree. Being a brand loyal I was a bit hesitant in putting money on a sensitive product. To put my experience into one line, I would be saying new Whisper Ultra Soft 2x  is a fragrant cotton cover pad which has absorption power of 2-3 hours and it is softer(It varies person to person).

Here’s how the packaging of Whisper Ultra Soft 2x  looks like. Pink color is really appealing to the eye and it equally does justice with the “softness” aspect. This pad is softer compared to other Whisper Ultra variants.

This Monday I attended the launch party of LG V20 at Sky Lounge, Royal Plaza, Delhi.  After creating an enormous buzz in the US market LG V20 is all set to enter the Indian market. I was excited to get the first look of this phone and play with it.  Along with influencers, there were famous media houses at the venue to cover this event and I also got to see “Gadget Guru” Rajiv Makhani there.

Amit Gujral, Marketing head of LG Electronics kick started the event. He briefed about the key features of LG V20 phone. While this session was going on their team kept 2 phones on each table. We unboxed the phone and tried that out. Amit told that this phone has got the dual rear camera and wide angle front lens, this helps in capturing wide angle shots which mean now you can click groupfies along with selfies.

To show the military strength and he asked us to drop the phone from a height. How can someone take this risk of spoiling 40 phones! We dropped the phone and to my surprise, it did not break, the screen was safe & secure without even a single scratch.

Rajiv Makhani took over the stage and shared his opinion for LG V20. He played videos which highlighted key features like Hi-Fi video recording, image/video stabilizer, and studio quality sound.

After introduction round we played “LGV20 Challenge”, we were asked to perform 2 tasks using different phones and do the comparison.

Task 1:

We were asked to click selfies of the group using different phones so that we can do the comparison.  We clicked and compared groufie clicked by iphone6, HTC and LG V20. Pic clicked by V20 covered entire group and stood out as the winner.

Task 2:

We were asked to record a song sung by a person from a distant place and analyze the quality of recorded sound on the phone. LG V20 came out as a clear winner in this task too.

Task 3: Teams were asked to create a tagline for the phone. Winning team members won Amazon vouchers worth Rs.2000.

At the end of the event, Amit announced a bumper offer for all of us. 5 lucky ones who will buy this phone on the spot will receive 50% off and within a second there were 5 people ready to buy this phone. 5 Phones sold in 5 mins!! This shows that this beast is going to get a tremendous response from the market.
