Hello all! Today, I’m reviewing the Match Perfection Ultra Creamy Compact Powder from Rimmel in the shade Soft Beige. I bought this in combination with the Match Perfection Foundation. They compliment in each other and the shade is a good enough match for me as well.
There aren’t too many shades to choose from and people with darker skintones might unfortunately, have trouble finding a match. The closest shade I got is Soft Beige. It isn’t an exact match but it blends well into my skin and looks even.
What I love most about this powder, is the texture. The powder isn’t rough or chalky, it feels very smooth and buttery. It similar to Mac Foundation Fix Plus powders....
Hello! It’s a lovely Friday, it’s cloudy, suggesting that it might rain. I also hauled yesterday, which puts me in a fabulous mood!
So I wanted to start these weekly random posts to interact with you guys a bit more. Free For All Friday, which basically means, anything goes, say what’s on your mind etc seemed an apt title! But just to bring a little order to the chaos, I thought I’d throw in a topic and poll as well!
So, what’s your favourite coral lipstick to wear this summer?
I like Mac See Sheer. Yes, it isn’t your typical coral. It’s lustre finish so it’s buildable and very comfortable to wear everyday.
Which one do you prefer? Do you...
Hello peeps! Hope you are all having a good week. I’m glad it’s Wednesday, which means Friday isn’t far behind!
So many months ago, I was thinking of using a hair serum just to see if it made it difference. To be honest it didn’t but I found other uses for this.
John Frieda’s Frizz – Ease Super Strength Hair Serum was one I googled and I found decent reviews for it. Sadly, this just didn’t work for me as a serum.
You apply this to damp or wet hair. You only need a coin size amount of the gel, just rub it in your palms and spread it across your hair. Now if you use this on your roots, you are bound to get greasy weighted down hair, especially if...
On this site I’ve confessed my love for Bath and Body Works many times. I’ve been using their body lotions for more than a year now and every time I like trying out a different scent. Why have so many, it’s incredibly hard to choose!
Well, today I’m reviewing the Twilight Woods Body Lotion.
At first I thought the scent would be woody and mild but I was surprised to get a very wild forest kind of scent. What on earth is wild forest you ask? Sweet, floral, fruity… put yourself in Avatar’s Pandora and imagine what it might feel like…
Something of the sort.
The quality of the body lotion is so good. It gets absorbed quickly and doesn’t leave any...
Hey, I was going to do a full tutorial like I usually do, but my camera ran out of battery and I was too lazy… oops…
So I thought I’d so a quick review. It’s a really simple look, but I’ve used colours I don’t wear often. I was experimenting! Olive and gold is a combination that looks gorgeous against deeper skintones. I was quite in the mood for a dramatic look! I usually don’t use so much of liner.
Hope you like it!
What to Use
1. A neutral olive green shadow. I used Mac Swimming. Yes, I know it isn’t olive green, but I made it work.
2. A bright gold eye shadow like Mac Amber Lights.
3. A dark green eye shadow like Inglot 414. I...
Hope you all had a good weekend! I just saw Star Trek and I loved it! Today, I’m reviewing an item that’s been in my skincare routine for the last 2-3 months. And I can’t do without it!
La Roche-Posay is a french skincare brand and have a lot of products for treating various skin imperfections. Now there is a lot of confusion over what the products exactly do. You see, there are three Effaclar products and they work well together or separately as you require. I’ll try to explain the difference between them all in brief below -
1. Effaclar A.I. – The AI stands for anti-imperfection. It’s a targeted spot treatment cream for breakouts and acne. So when you...
I’m so glad it’s the weekend!! I’m working on Saturdays as well and I miss that extra holiday. :/
But there’s always blogging and my readers to look forward to on the weekends!
Today I’m reviewing a really pretty polish for summers, China Glaze High Hopes. It’s from their Up and Away collection. I had bought this along with Lemon Fizz. I really need to wear this more often now!
I really love the colour. This is what I call a true coral. But for the most part, it’s a coral that veers more towards pink rather than orange. I think it’s a shade that will look good against all skintones as well. It’s bright and eye catching, but not...
1. Rebecca Minkoff : Mini M.A.C : Almond
Good leather, very wearable. I’ve been wanting this bag for the longest time.
2. Soap and Glory : The Righteous Butter
I’ve read really good reviews about this. And now that’s its available in India, I really want it!
3. Mac : Mineralize Lipstick : Style Surge
It’s the perfect colour for summer.
4. Pipa Bella : Pastel bib necklace
It’s such a good statement piece to have. I don’t really have any pastel necklaces.
5. Caudalie : Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum
I’ve been reading up stuff and I feel like I need a hydrating serum for my skin. This might just be...
This is a post about how excitement induced by the sight of glitter, can overcome logic and reason. You’ll have to see the photos to know what I mean.
I first came across the Superglass collection on Temptalia’s site. And it was like love at first sight. I remembered seeing these on StrawberryNet and so I lurched for them! It was on discount, I took it as a sign from the universe and bought it promptly in the shades Fab Frenzy and Totally Bang!
Now that the story’s ended, let me rave about this lip gloss a little more.
This is not the best lip gloss in terms of consistency and there are some parts of the finish that I do not like. But, I haven’t come across...
Resort 2014 is here! I’m preparing for my next big vacation in June and I’ll be travelling a lot. It puts me in the right mood to review resort collections! Granted, I’m travelling to cold countries in Scandanavia, the beachy resort collections are still a treat to view!
Chanel’s resort collection as always, took place in another exotic place; this time Singapore. While some silhouettes borrowed from the traditional Singaporean dress, Lagerfeld interprets it in the classic Chanel-esque manner. If you love pearls, clean exhuberance, you’ll love this collection.
I loved the strands of pearls and pearl buttons incorporated in the outfits. The oversize...
This is a really casual chic outfit I love wearing if I’ve heading out for a movie or a casual date. It’s simple and light for summers.
Top : Miss Selfridge | Jeans : Miss Selfridge | Cardigan : Miss Selfridge | Clutch : Forever New | Heels : Dorothy Perkins
Necklace : Fab Alley | Bracelets : Fab Alley and Westside
Lips : Mac Super Glass Totally Bang | Nails : Illamasqua Phallic | Toes : Zoya Alegra
1. Monochrome can at times feel too simple. Add more depth by using pieces with different textures throughout the outfit.
2. Adding a little bit of colour with accessories does help! I chose the floral clutch as an ode to...
This was a very impulsive purchase for me. But it smells so amazing, I couldn’t not get it! I went into Parcos because I wanted to take a look at Rimmel, but I ended up buying only this.
Narciso Rodriguez For Her comes in two types. The light pink bottle is is the Eau de Parfum, which is the concentrated one. I bought the Eau the Toilette because it’s still very strong and it was cheaper.
How do I describe this scent… it’s definitely a scent for night time and special occasions. It has that floral, honey and slightly woody mix without being too much of either. I feel it’s very well balanced that way.
It has top notes of honey, heart notes of amber and base...
