NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm

NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm

I'm sitting here all cozy in bed, fuzzy socks on my feet, warm sweater on and a nice cup of hot chocolate next to me (when it was written, not posted). It's the perfect mood to talk about a lip balm that makes be feel all warm and cozy. It has many names, like 'Holy Grail Lip Balm', 'The Matte Lip Balm', 'Saviour of Lips', but popularly known as Nuxe Reve de Miel. If you've already used this, feel free to just nod vigorously and express your love below. If you haven't, this…Read more
The Sheer Red Lipstick Edit

The Sheer Red Lipstick Edit

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I wanted to see The Hobbit but had so much stuff to do so I might catch a late night show this week. I'm kinda sad it's all ending though. So for the last two months, I've really really been loving sheer red lipsticks. I don't know what it is I always go through these phases where I have my usual chunk of nudes and bolds that I wear but on the side I have something else going on (lipstick wise). These are some of the…Read more
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger

I can't live without concealer. I'm not the sort of person that can't go out the door without makeup. I've lived without makeup for most of my life but just adding concealer makes a massive difference to my appearance. That's actually how I started looking into makeup because I wanted to hide my horrendous dark circles. It took me a lot of trial and error to find a combination that really works for me. I have a very pigmented under eye situation with all sorts of colours running through. I also have very deep…Read more
Mac Proenza Schouler Ocean City Blush Ombre

Mac Proenza Schouler Ocean City Blush Ombre

I realize it's not really helpful to review a limited edition blush that isn't available anymore but maybe we can just appreciate the beautiful ombre instead. :) I generally don't go for any of the Mac Limited Edition products. This was actually my first one and a few months later I bought a lip gloss from The Simpsons collection. I'm gonna take a break from Mac now. I remember Mac came about with a similar ombre blush which I didn't get and then Estee Lauder had one, which again I decided not to buy.…Read more
Wishlist : December 2014

Wishlist : December 2014

The final wishlist of the year! Seems fitting since it's my birthday in less than a month. I'm allowed a bit of a splurge, right?!   Tom Ford Lip Color in Indian Rose Who wouldn't want this? I'm torn between Indian Rose, Casablanca and a few other shades. Debating which shade I might eventually buy is a nice way to procrastinate from actually buying Tom Ford. I thought about buying from the new limited edition minis collection. But I didn't actually like any of the shades that much. I think I'd rather pay for a…Read more
China Glaze Tempest Nail Polish

China Glaze Tempest Nail Polish

Hi guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! I had a bit of a closet purge, sorting out clothes for donation. Attacking the shoe closet next! You might already know, I have a thing for blurple nail polishes. I think I've found one with the perfect balance. Is it purple? Is it blue? I can't make up my mind and I love it! China Glaze Tempest is a pearlescent nail polish with a purple base and fine blue shimmer. The shimmer is a bit duochrome and shifts the blue tone from dark…Read more
Klorane Shampoo with Nettle

Klorane Shampoo with Nettle

I'm doing a hair related review after so long! I'm on a mission to get my hair back to the glory days. It was bouncy, thick and I needed to shampoo just once or twice a week. I want that back! I first mentioned this product in last month's favourites, time to do a full review. I've always had dry hair but I started developing an oily scalp a while back. That resulted in me shampooing more and it was a terrible cycle to break. I also have fine hair so any amount of…Read more
Mac Girl About Town Lipstick

Mac Girl About Town Lipstick

Hello there! I'm having a great start to the week, which doesn't happen very often! I'm actually moving to a new place in a month so I've been spending a lot of time looking at faucets, wall colours and door knobs. It's fun and frustrating at the same time! I'm the point where I just want everything to be done magically and finally move in! Today's lipstick is a firm favourite. I wanted it for years and bought it last year (thankfully before the price increase), it's Mac Girl About Town. Does this lipstick…Read more
December 2014 List Love

December 2014 List Love

Hello! I haven't done one of these in a couple of months. If you're new, this is basically where I share beauty and non beauty things I've found while surfing the interwebs. Books 1. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman : A while back I was distraught with my inability to keep up with my "a book a month" strategy. It's amusing and a bit sad that I found this book recommendation on 9Gag. I know... you're allowed one eye roll. Anyway, it's the kind of book you'll love to read if…Read more
Zoya Perrie Nail Polish

Zoya Perrie Nail Polish

This review is long overdue. I've mentioned this polish in ton's of favourites and it's a perfect "radiant orchid" shade. 2014 is almost over so not that it matters, but it really is the perfect Pantone shade. Zoya Perrie is a creme polish in a lavender-pink inbetween colour. It's hard to pick a side, that makes it really pretty. It's a little bit darker in my comparison swatches but hopefully you get a good idea of the colour. Essie Lilacism is a very light lilac, Perrie is a pinker version of Butter London Molly…Read more
