Priyanka Gill - Founder & Editor-In-Chief
I pretty much spend most of my day staring into one screen or another. Giving the eye area some regular TLC is a must. Every morning and evening after cleansing, I use my fave Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum to keep my eyes looking fresh.
Namrata Bostrom - CEO
I swear by my Mac Liquid Eyeliner. It's portable, applies super smoothly and I always have one stashed away in my handbag. I also love how easy it is to touch up your liner with it. You can just layer it on over an older coat, without worrying about it smudging. This is especially useful if you don't have makeup remover handy.
Sanjana Eipe – Marketing & Sales Director
The one beauty product you will always find in my bag is MAC Flat out Fabulous. You have an all important dinner or you are just feeling blah - A dash of colour can do wonders. The colours actually brighten up my face.
Pradipta Sarkar - Associate Editor
The Clean And Clear Oil Free Moisturizer - I cannot live without it! It's basically the answer to all my prayers when it comes to my basic beauty routine. Actually, just surviving every day. It's hydrating without being greasy, super light and is soaked in by my skin so quickly that I never have to worry about any extra "just put cream on" shininess on my face. Plus it's comes in a small, handy little bottle that's very easy to carry around in my bag - in case I feel the need to top up through the course of the day. Come summer, monsoon, winter, whatever - this is one product that I hold sacrosanct! Bonus: it really does work way better than most other daily moisturizers I've tried in keeping acne and breakouts at bay.
Krita Raut - Editorial Manager
My skin gets really oily during summer and I have been using Biotique Bio Chlorophyll Gel, religiously, as a base. I also use it as a night cream, no more oily skin in the morning. It is a very good at oil control and also helps alleviate my acne problem. In addition it has this soothing effect which makes it perfect to use after threading and waxing. For best results I recommend you keep it in your fridge.
Caroline D’Cruz - Assistant Editor
I love the Marc Jacobs Remedy Concealer Pen which instantly lights up my under eye area and removes any signs of fatigue from my face. It also brilliantly gets rid of any kinds of marks and blemishes with ease. The pen is easy to use and comes with a little dispensing button at the bottom. Also, there's a small window at the side of the pen which lets you know when your concealer is coming to an end and it’s time to buy a new one.
Priyanka Ghura - Beauty Editor
The one beauty product that you can always find in my bag is NARS Tinted Moisturizer. I’m not one for heavy makeup at all so this is pretty much my soulmate. It’s super light, doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and covers up blemishes while giving my skin a super fresh-looking radiance. Oh and it keeps it moisturized too. I haven’t touched a foundation ever since I got my hands on this, even when I’m going out at night.
Simar Rana - Senior Lifestyle Writer
The one beauty product I absolutely love and cannot do without would have to be the Benefit Hello Flawless - Oxygen Wow BB Cream. Even on a day when my skin is looking particularly dull or tired, I know that just applying a small amount of this product will brighten my face up! It gives an amazing sheen and glow to my skin and a very natural one at that. So even when I'm trying to go for a no makeup minimalistic look, this BB cream works wonders

Tea Tree Face Wash by BodyShop. After struggling with umpteenth number of face cleansers in the market, I finally found the perfect one that is great for my combination skin. I have been using this face wash for more than 3 years now and I absolutely love it. It doesn't make my face too dry and controls the oil all day long!

If there’s one beauty product that I hold close to my heart, it has to be the Colorbar Full Cover Makeup Stick. It’s a foundation cum concealer, and it’s extremely simple to apply. It’s perfect for the girl who is alway on the go (like myself!). It gives a matte finish look and is not one bit greasy. After use, it makes my skin feel smooth and baby soft. It’s something I carry wherever I go.
Enough is said about the magic of Moroccan Oil and there is good reason for it! I have thick, curly hair which refuses to cooperate most of the times. I have been using Moroccan oil for a while now and my hair is definitely softer and more manageable. And to top it all, it smells absolutely divine!!
Anushree Sharma - Product Manager
SEPHORA COLLECTION Long-Lasting 12HR Wear Eye Liner - I love this eyeliner, the thickness of the brush is perfect and and it is super smooth. It also lasts all day long and comes off super easily while washing my face. I absolutely love the Black Shimmer one and use it while going out to the clubs!
Snigdha Chowdhary - Account Manager
The one lipstick I have on me 24*7 is Mac’s Ruby Woo. It’s perfect for my skin tone and adds an instant WOW factor to any outfit - be it a formal meeting during the day or for a round of drinks with my friends in the evening. The best thing about this lipstick is that it’s long lasting so I do not have to make frequent washroom trips!
Dakshee Haryani - Social Media Coordinator
The ONE beauty product I swear by is the Matrix Hair Serum. It’s perfect for someone like me who used to have pretty uncontrollable and frizzy hair! It’s made my hair soft and manageable now. It doesn’t make the hair look oily or limp. Also, it’s a good heat protectant serum too!!
