Clinique All About Eyes Rich Cream

Clinique All About Eyes Rich Cream

Hello there! I've gone almost 10 days without posting and that's very irregular for this blog! My work load has changed dramatically over the last month and there are a lot of personal engagements and travel in the months ahead as well. For a while things will be less structured schedule wise. I had my big skincare routine talk this month and one of the products I've been using is the Clinique All About Eyes Rich cream. I wasn't really using an eye cream before, my usual facial oil/moisturizer seemed to work just fine.…Read more
Canmake Cream Cheek in CL01 Clear Red Heart

Canmake Cream Cheek in CL01 Clear Red Heart

One of my biggest discoveries last year was drugstore makeup in Japan. I bought a ton but the Canmake blushes really stood out for me. Canmake Cream Cheek in Clear Red Heart (CL01) is a sheer red cream blush. 'Clear' refers to it's truly translucent nature which makes it adapt to your skin tone and texture really well to give a very natural and seamless look. It has a gel like consistency which looks similar to the Josie Maran Cheek Gelee but it's creamier and softer. You need absolutely the tiniest bit. The pinky red…Read more
My Skincare Routine | Face Masks & Extras

My Skincare Routine | Face Masks & Extras

Hi guys! Now that we're done with the entire AM & PM routine, here are few of the extra bits I like to use. My face mask routine as such as quite methodical. On Wednesdays, right on the middle of the week it's time for a deep cleansing mask followed by a hydrating one. On Saturdays, my exfoliating mask and I have some time together. I don't always follow up with a hydrating mask. It depends, whether I'm going out later or not.   Exfoliating Mask : Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant : Review…Read more

My Skincare Routine | PM

Welcome to part two of my skincare routine, all about night time! Introduction about my skin type and morning skincare routine are all in this post. My pre-blogging self would be scoffing at this routine. From foam cleanser + Nivea + Vaseline, this is what it's come to! The first part of my night time routine is basically cleansing and toning. I very much prefer using cleansing oils and balms/milk/cream variants. Another addition that I previously did not use is an exfoliating toner. It's really helped with keeping the PH of my skin more acidic. I…Read more

My Skincare Routine | AM

Welcome to the three part series on my skincare routine! The last one I did was in 2013. I wanted to do one last year but I was never quite happy with my overall routine. Part Two is up here! I guess I should start off with explaining about my skin type! Skip ahead if you've heard this a million times already. I basically have dry skin, more so in winters. It's normal during the monsoons when it's humid. I don't really get oily but if it's a really hot summer day I…Read more
Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette – The Dolce Vita

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette – The Dolce Vita

Hope you're having a great start to the weekend! I'm spending mine working unfortunately! I bought this a couple of months ago and it's become one of my favourites palettes to use! I used it on my birthday and a couple of other occasions, it's very special to me! Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in The Dolce Vita is a bronze-gold eyeshadow quad. It has 3 satin/pearl finish shades and one glitter shade. It's not Lorac Pro level of pigmentation, but it's still pretty good. They're more pigmented when used wet but I never do.…Read more
Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask

Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask

Hey everyone! Let's talk skincare! After my disaster with the Origins mask, it was a relief to find a deep cleansing mask that didn't dry me out horribly. Everyone, meet the Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask. Heavily lavender scented, it's a very light olive (pista) coloured soft clay mask. It's a bit clumpy and thick in consistency but easy to distribute. I leave it on for 10 minutes, by then the mask is almost white in colour with no uncomfortable stretchiness! It does feel a bit tight, but an adequate amount. I usually rinse it off a…Read more
YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique

YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique

Hope you are all having a glorious weekend! Let's talk about an absolute winner of a lip product! YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique is a staining lip gloss in a medium peach shade with a bit of silver shimmer. I caved and bought this pretty late but I'm so glad I picked this colour. From the plethora of shades available, I feel it's the most unique! For me it's a lot like Chanel Liberte in a gloss! My love for peach lipsticks that actually suit me is new and growing. Corail Aquatique is…Read more
Just Swatches : Nars Blushes

Just Swatches : Nars Blushes

Hello there! I haven't done one of these in a while. I don't see myself buying anymore Nars blushes, I thought it would be a good time to do a collective post on them. I present to you, my Nars blush collection which is very dear to me! I was very new into makeup when I found myself attracted to Nars blushes, Douceur being the first one I picked out. I wasn't wearing blush regularly at the time and it's the first blush that made me get into the habit of applying blush…Read more
Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

Hope you're all having a great weekend! Time for a cult lipstick review! I'm not a very makeup trendy person and so when I heard of Black Honey I had no idea what people were talking about. As usual, my investigation started with a quick Google search, which led to swatches, which in turn led to reviews and in the end, I was sold. I couldn't find this at my local Clinique counter, so I ended up getting it during my birthday haul. Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey was apparently famous in the…Read more
