Mac Blush in Sunbasque

I've been on a blush craze lately. I've been loving Sunbasque for the past few months; been wearing it a lot! So I'm reviewing Mac's Sunbasque blush today. You get a lot of types in mac blushes. Matte which is very pigmented, sheertone , frost, satin and sheertone shimmer which is sheer and has shimmer. However, all the sheer blushes I've experienced do have buildable coverage. Sunbasque is a sheertone shimmer. It's muted orange brown colour. I'd call it a bronze with gold shimmer. The shimmer is very subtle and not so noticible in daylight. With flash it seems to…Read more

Fall 2012 Couture : Malson Martin Margiela

Malson Martin Margiela has a collection that embodies architechtural inspirations from New York. I happen to like the jewel encrusted masks. I suppose they would make good headgear instead. The belt fastenings on the dresses are meant to depict a doorknob from a plush New York building. But I like the different styles incorporated. They seem to cover every trend this season. But I wish there was more fluency. Love the sheer lace trousers.                 Image Credit : Style.com | Entire CollectionRead more

Fall 2012 Couture : Jean Paul Gaultier

Jean Paul Gaultier has  a very exciting couture collection this season. He draws inspiration from artists, writers in Paris. The collection is very masculine and edgy. There's a mix of leather and fabric which embodies hard and soft aspects of the look. The jeweltoned dresses and gowns have exaggerated collars and frames at the hips to emphasize it. But you also have intricately designed gowns in flattering colours. I love the black mesh maxi dresses and colourful geometric patched pants.                          …Read more
Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in Rose Gold

Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in Rose Gold

Revlon's Coloburst lip gloss range is amazing! This is seriously one of the best lip glosses I've ever tried. The formula is perfect for a lip gloss, it's not too pricey and everything expect from a lip gloss. So today I'm reviewing the shade Rose Gold. Like the name suggests, it's a peachy pink colour with gold microshimmer. It's a great nude colour for deeper skintones and looks equally lovely on pale ones too.  It's quite opaque but it does blend with your lip colour. The lip gloss isn't sticky or gooey. It's…Read more

Mac Coppering Eye Shadow

I'm back with a make up review! Mac's Coppering eye shadow is one of its veluxe pearl finishes and a beautiful orange copper colour. The pigmentation is excellent and one of the best in Mac eye shadows. The microshimmer is very finely milled and there's no fallout once it's applied. It blends really well and it can be used for so many different looks, not just nude-bronze ones. While it looks good on all skintones, I feel it suits deeper skintones. It can look too orange on paler skintones if you're attempting a nude…Read more

Fall 2012 Couture : Elie Saab

Elie Saab. Need I say more? It's a collection I always look forward to. There isn't much of surprise left in Elie Saab's collections anymore, you know what to expect. But I still haven't had enough because he makes them all look beautiful in so many interesting ways. We start off with black semi sheer gowns with lace and bead work. They look sensual and extraordinary. The finale wedding gown is very beautiful with its intricate work and flattering colour. I loved the teal and grey blue gowns with golden details. The collection…Read more

Fall 2012 Couture : Giambattista Valli

Valli's couture collection paints the picture of a beautiful garden. With peaks of volume and prints, the collection is beautiful. The transition from red to green makes the contrast colours look very harmonious. I love the use of feathers to accentuate the waist and the applique. To imagine all this done by hand, you can truly appreciate the craftsmanship. I love the green flowy gowns and the high ruffle neck ones. I also liked the one shoulder green and black print gown with the layered skirt. Each piece is so unique and yet they…Read more

Fall 2012 Couture : Ulyana Sergeenko

Ulyana Sergeenko's debut couture collection has a strong Russian influence that tell so many stories. The very first look is intimidating and militaristic. You have shabby chic, influences from the rural side of Russia as well as the mighty army. But it all comes well together. I love the bold shoulders in the collection and the flare skirts. The collection will impress many. I love Natalia in the finale look. I also love the dresses with applique and detailing.                            …Read more
