Resort 2013 : Just Cavalli

This collection was a psychedelic mirrored rage. It had bold patterns and prints all mashed together brilliantly. There was a definite hip hop vibe about the collection. I like the mirrored effect and neon animal print although I don't think I'd dare to wear it. :p The animal print maxi dress at the end is amazing. There were few demure pieces as well with the white fabric and rubber placement which looks like croc skin.                       Image Credit : | Entire Collection…Read more

Resort 2013 : Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta had a few hits and misses for me here. The entire resort collection seems like a hashed representation of everything. There were floral and abstract prints. The water coloured suits were very magnificent. But the gowns at the end stole the show. The green one gave the mermaid silhouette a new twist with its hard edged peplum. All pieces in the collection look amazing but it didn't wow me or inspire me.                                  …Read more

Inglot Face Blush in 34

This is the blush I've wearing a lot recently! It's a sheer peachy pink colour that looks really lovely! Inglot's face blush in 34 (I wish they had names!!!) is a  pretty muted peachy pink blush. The fact that it's not super bright is what makes it so universally flattering on all skintones. I feel it's a bit similar to Nars Orgasm but might be not be that bright. This blush has gold shimmer in it that's very subtle but it gives a really glowy look. There isn't much fallout from the shimmer and it…Read more

Forest Essentials Body Lotion

I don't quite remember where I got this. But it's tiny and effective. I used it on the go when I needed a moisturizer. It has a lovely aloe vera fragrance which isn't overly strong. It isn't the most hydrating cream in the market but it stays on well for 5-6 hours I guess. It's cream in colour and gel like in consistency. It feels quite cool when you apply it as well. Photos below!          Read more

Resort 2013 : Erdem

This is probably one of the best resort collections I've seen. This season it's by far the most eye catching and fresh collection. I love the very first dress (on the right) with panels down the waist. They give a slight peplum effect without jumping right into it. I love the large prints and the blue and black mix. What I probably like the most are the printed shoes. They look so gorgeous!! The dresses have a very simple and elegant silhouette but the prints and mix of fabrics make it very exciting…Read more

Resort 2013: DKNY

DKNY's Resort collection has an understated elegance to it. From sheer black blouses to the sequined skirt, each piece has a slight edge to it and yet looks very polished. I really liked the black and white floral sheer shirt and I loved the silver capped shoes at the end. There may not be much that's undiscovered in terms of fashion but this collection simply recycled the current trends gave them a fresh look.                                   Image Credit :…Read more

Inglot XL7 and Filthy Gorgeous in Twilight

So finally, a review of the highly esteemed Inglot XL7. The beauty of those pretty blue glitters is very hard to notice when worn bare (which I like all the same). I've used a Filthy Gorgeous black polish named 'twilight' as a base. I'll talk about XL7 first. It's pretty much worth the money I think. I haven't found glitter polish in the exact shades of blue glitter as this, which if you know me at all, you should know that I LOVE blue polishes. The shimmers are blue, light blue and silver…Read more

Resort 2013 : Chanel

There are a lot of interesting separates in Chanel's Resort collection this year. Periwinkle blues, powder blues with yellow give a very fresh and spring vibe to the collection. I don't think the silhouettes are particularly flattering and they are very hard to pull off. Diane Kruger wore a similar dress from the collection at the Cannes Film festival this year and managed to look really elegant. I guess it depends on the style. That said, some of the pieces are more editorial than wearable. The look I really love is the sheer…Read more

Resort 2013 : Bottega Veneta

I like the colour palette of Bottega Veneta's Resort collection. They are all muted dark and bright colours. I think they are universally flattering. I'm not too inspired by the collection. There are few pieces that are really gorgeous though. The collection has activewear, fitted dresses, light coats and some swimwear pieces as well. It kinda embodies all the looks you'd need. I really liked the blue dress with a floral collar. The plum pums actually look really cute.                       Image Credit :…Read more

Revlon ColorStay 12 Hour Eye Shadow in Blushed Wines

I'm back with a review of the Revlon Colorstay 12 Hour eye shadow. I bought this palette in 05 Blushed Wines. Pinks and plums are shades I want to use more often now. I think it's very flattering on brown eyes. The palette is a quad which comes in four shades of pink and plum combos. All the shades are shimmer and very pigmented. I'll describe the shades in the order shown below - 01. The first one from top is a very pale pink. It almost looks frosty. 02. The second one…Read more
