PLUSS PronGO Bags – A must for every beer drinker?

How would it feel when you are running errands in the scorching heat but can quench your thirst with chilled water from your bottle? How would it feel if I tell you that you can carry ice cream and keep it in the solid state for upto 5 hours? Or what if you can take your own beer and drink it chilled hours after you left home? Sounds unbelievable, doesn’t it? Well what if I tell you that it is not a gimmick!

PLUSS, a Research & Innovation company, has come up with Phase change materials (PCMs) that help maintain the temperature of food products stored inside. PronGo bags are like these little refrigerators on the go!

PLUSS – PronGo Bags

PLUSS has pioneered the PCM technology in India. “PROducts on the Go” aka PronGO Bags are specifically designed to ensure precise temperature control of food and beverages for long duration. These are like mini refrigerators and are available in different sizes and for different temperatures enabling better performance than Gel and Ice packs or insulated bags.

You can store dairy, frozen, or chilled food products which need to be stored at different temperatures. This unique product can keep food products at -15 degrees Celsius for upto 5 hours in hot conditions. Multilayered film pouches containing PCMS fit in pockets inside the PronGo bag. The flat pouches are about 100mm by 150mm. The PCM temperature range is -10 to -18 degrees Celsius.

PronGo bags are not just bags made out of insulated materials, they come with pouches that are kept inside the pockets to maintain the temperature of the food item stored inside with minimal fluctuations. So while the pouches help maintain the temperature inside the bag, the bag itself keeps the food or beverage safe.

PronGo bags are exclusively available on Amazon India.

Prongo bags can be useful for carrying beverages like liquor, juices, soft drinks etc. and food products like frozen vegetables, meats, snacks and even ice cream. There are different designs of various sizes and temperature settings which you can select based upon our needs. After all, in this fast paced world we need something to be adaptable and customize-able for our individual preferences and choices!

ASUS Zenvolution Blogger Event – Outfit, Makeup and stuff!

ASUS Zenvolution Event – Outfit, Makeup and stuff!

Hi everyone, last week I got to be a part of the ASUS Zenvolution (#Z3NVOLUTION) Event held at Hotel Pullman, New Delhi. This was my first technology related blogger event and I was really excited! In this post, I am going to share everything that happened at the event and my makeup + outfit details.

ASUS Zenvolution event

All the attendees were sent VR headsets and some scrumptious brownies with event invitations a week before. I posted a few photos with the VR headset for fun on my Instagram and waited eagerly for the event. On the day of the event, the PR company arranged a cab that arrived at 1.30 pm. I was at the venue by 2.30 pm. The event registration was scheduled to start at 3 so I took a little tour of the Hotel Pullman property. After registrations, we had tea and cookies before entering the hall.

It was set up in a fashion show kinda way. There was ramp hidden with black net curtains on 2 sides. The event started at 4.30 and we saw some interesting dance moves coordinated with music and digital special effects visible on the black curtains. Then Jerry Chen, CEO of ASUS, introduced us to the Zenfone 3 range of smartphones, Zenbook 3 Notebook and Transformer 3 Pro PC. There was a fashion show by the designer duo – Shivan & Narresh – was amazing and the garments were inspired by the sleek design of Zenfone 3! We tried out the newly launched products displayed in the stalls at the venue and then left after High Tea at Hotel Pullman.

New Launches at the ASUS Zenvolution event:

  1. ZenFone 3
  2. ZenFone 3 Deluxe
  3. ZenFone 3 Ultra
  4. ZenFone 3 Laser
  5. ZenBook 3
  6. Transformer 3 Pro

Outfit & Makeup

It was working day for me so I had 30 minutes to do my makeup and change after coming from office before I had to leave for the event. I chose pastel shades and paired sky blue with powder pink for this outfit. These powder pink jeggings are from H&M and I picked them up during a sale a couple of months ago. They are comfortable and fit like second skin. I love the color. I usually like to pair light pants with dark shirts but I decided to experiment and donned my sky blue blouse.

I picked up this top from CODE way back in February during a sale but did not get a chance to wear it until the day of the event. I liked how both of these looked together so I just added a pair of black stilettos from Tresmode. I picked up my tiny pink satchel bag from LimeRoad.

Since I was wearing cool toned colours, I picked out silver accessories to complete my outfit. The earrings and necklace are from

I wanted to have bold lips look in mind since I was in a hurry and there was no time for a smoky eye. I applied the Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Liquid foundation with a damp beauty blender and then concealed my dark circles using the Shiseido Spotscover Foundation. I then set it with the Chambor Brightening Smoothening Wet &Dry Foundation.

I contoured my face softly with Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer. Applied L’Oreal Kajal Magique Bold to my inner rims and also lined my eyes ending in a slight wing. Then I curled my lashes and applied my favorite mascara of all time – Fairydrops the Platinum Waterproof Mascara. And then I applied the Estee Lauder

Well, that is it for the complete look, you can check out my post with the Zenfone Press Release for the product details. I had a good time attending this blogger event. I also got a chance to interact with other bloggers. Blogger events are so much fun!

I enjoyed myself a lot at the event and loved the Shivaan & Naresh fashion show. I will be sharing my outfit and makeup breakdown in an upcoming post!

Natio Cream Eyeshadow – Review, Swatches!

Natio Cream Eyeshadow – Review, Swatches Price in India!

Natio is a natural Australian beauty brand that is available in India in Sephora outlets and various online shopping websites like Nykaa, Amazon, Purplle, etc. I had tried and loved their skincare products even when I was in South Korea. So when I came across them in Sephora, I picked up a few makeup products to try out and review for you. One of the things I picked up is Natio Cream Shadow. There are gorgeous sparkly metallic shades in this range of cream eyeshadows and I picked the shade – Cinnamon. The other two shades are marshmallow and cocoa. Here is my detailed review of the product:

Natio Cream Eyeshadow – Cinnamon

Product: Natio Cream Eyeshadow – Cinnamon

Price: 620 INR

Quantity: 5 ml

Claim: This silky cream-to-gel eyeshadow smoothes on to instantly lift the eyes. Available in three softly shimmery shades.

Natio Cream Eyeshadow – Cinnamon

Natio Cream shadow comes in a rectangular transparent plastic tube with a black lid. It has a doe foot applicator which helps in applying the eyeshadow directly on the eye lids. The eyeshadow shade is visible from the outside which is something I appreciate in makeup. It basically has the same packaging as many lip glosses.

When I was swatching the shades, I loved all three of them. The texture worried me a little so despite the temptation I picked up only one shade – Cinnamon. It is a gorgeous champagne gold shade – one of the most sparkly eyeshadows I have ever come across.

When I tried it a few days later for a party makeup tutorial, it disappointed me. I tried it 3 more times before accepting that it was not a good formula. The applicator failed to apply it evenly on the eyelids and it did not set for a long time. I have oily eyelids so I used different eye primers to see if it would work then. It didn’t.

I gave it a final try by using my finger to apply it on the eyelids. No improvement! So I just let it go! That is also the reason there is no EOTD or FOTD to accompany this post.

Rating: 2/5

Recommend: No

Repurchase: No

The Natio Cream Shadows are now discontinued but they are still available in Sephora India or online. However, I would advise you to stay away from them or at least swatch them before you spend your money on them. This product turned out to be a total disappointment, however, I am having a nice time trying out the other Natio makeup products I have. Stay tuned for their reviews!
