  3. Atrayee Sarkar, 26, Fresh Graduate

    Q: What is your favourite skincare & makeup brand? Why?

    A: Skincare brand:
    Innisfree hands down!

    Reason?
    They’ve products and ranges which suit me very well and is probably the 2nd Korean brand to have entered India after TFS. This brand alone provides a variety of products for my personal use as in the ingredients suit me! Other brands I’ve just started using and getting my hands on because most brands have become available only in recent years. This was the very first brand I first indulged in extensively and saw marvelous results on my skin. I love the Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Cleansing Oil, Green Tea Balancing Lotion, Green Tea Essence in Lotion.. Soybean Energy Essence (the light version).. Bija & Tea Tree Capsule Mask, Super Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask.. Tea Tree Sheet Mask, Pomegranate Sheet Mask.. Barley Gomage Peeling..

    Make up brand:
    I tend to use no fuss make-up products of good quality and performance even if it costs a bit too much. I use makeup mostly to enhance features and that’s about it. L’oreal, Kryolan and Maybelline are what I mostly invest in.

    Reason?
    Like I mentioned above I use it to enhance rather than camouflage. Moreover, this maybe be because I never experimented much when it comes to makeup. I always put more effort into caring for and maintaining my skin, hair and body. Also, I’m very sensitive and most products I have resulted disastrously for me, so I don’t indulge much. Personally, I am more confident when I carry myself as I am. It’s all about quality, efficiency and performance when it comes down to makeup products.

    Q: What area of Kolkata do you usually go to buy your make up? And why?

    A: Area name:
    Prince Anwar Shah Road.

    Reason:
    Because South City Mall is nearer to where I reside. I don’t trust or invest in the roadside markets. And, the collection and range is good here.

    Shopping Mall Name:
    Mostly South City Mall. Other places are Quest Mall or Acropolis Mall. Or any Pantaloons, Shoppers Stop, West Side, Lifestyle etc.

    Q: Which channel do you use the most to buy cosmetics? (Shopping malls/ road shops/ marts/ online). Why?

    A: Online! Easy and convenient! I do extensive research online before investing in any product because of being wary of it not suiting my skin type, undertone and so on. If I’m not sure of a product then I would visit the mall check them out and come back, mull over whether the product is at par with the results of want and then shop online!

    Q: What was your favourite product promotion? (online/offline)? Why?

    A: Online! When there are collaborations between reviewers and they extensively share and discuss in detail the good and the bad about the product they’ve all been testing without any inhibition! And then comparison between when the product was used on different skin type, having different skin care concerns, when used during different seasons and time, when the different methods in which the product was used by everyone is shared, when composition percentage and ingredient list of the product is scrutinised and compared and also, when the product has been compared with other similar products from the same brand or different brands.

    Q: Who do you think is the most beautiful actress? Why?

    A: Gal Gadot is my favourite! She’s a martial artist, is fitness crazy, an actress.. I find her very disciplined. She has a certain aura about herself which can’t be toned down nor can it be ignored or over shadowed. She’s earning her success too. I find her calm, composed, and confident in her own skin. People who can hold their own.. I see them as a force of nature. This quality is very inspiring to me.

    Q: Please write down any Korean Cosmetics you’ve used or know about. If you’ve tried, why did you buy Korean cosmetic?

    A: Yes, extensively so! Innisfree, Dear Klair’s, CosRX, Benton, Skinfood are what I use daily. I’ve used Dear Packers too.. now I’m eyeing Sulwhasoo, Missha, Hanskin, I am From, Acwell, Neogen and Banila Co.

    Q: If you open a cosmetic shop in Kolkata, which area would you choose? Why?

    A: Definitely near my residence i.e. MasterDa Suryasen Metro Station because there’s a long stretch of area where there is no market as such for Cosmetics specifically. Either you would have to travel to Anwar Shah Road (South City Mall) or to Garia to get access to any mall where authentic products are available. Strategically placed.. which can be easily commuted to and would be easily visible for anybody passing by for advertisement purposes and also to attract customers. It would be at a place where there will be enough space for garage/godown/stock room/storage room attached. Most importantly, it should be a place where there is immediate access to an existing flow of potential customers!

    1. I forgot to add my reasons for buying Korean Cosmetics. I’ve suffered a lot with skin sensitivity, dehydration, oiliness, acne, blemishes and scarring. Only when I started my journey with Innisfree did I see an immense effect. I started during my teenage years. And right now, I feel better. A lot better and confident too.

    2. Thank you for your answer, by the way Innisfree was the first brand to launch in India, they launched their first flagship store in Delhi around 2010 or 2012. Nykaa later launced Innisfree, probably December 2016, way before they launched TFS.

    3. No, no, no, no. 😅 Excuse my embarrassing outburst! I just remembered it was Missha. Yes, Missha was the first brand to have entered the Indian Market in 2013, location being New Delhi. I know for a fact because I’ve been stalking Asian Beauty since my teenage years and when Missha entered and was solely available only from New Delhi.. I was greatly disappointed! I used to keep researching about beauty crazily and Innisfree was one brand which was talked about by literally everyone! All the blogs that I followed back then used to always mention Innisfree.. and, it was not available. I just got chills hahaa thinking about that time and my crazy obsession since then.. right now I can not imagine being without Innisfree. The wait was too long and all I used to do was crave for it and then finally, Innisfree did enter The Indian Market! 😁
