May 2015 Favourites

May 2015 Favourites

Happy Monday! I thought I'd present what I've been loving lately, there's a mix of old and new products this time round. I generally don't have too many new favourites month to month. But every 2-3 months I have a lot more new products to share without it getting too repetitive.     01. Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Body Lotion :: As much as I like The Body Shop it can get boring to use them at a stretch. I was quite happy to find this at Sephora. I had used…Read more
Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick in Dragon (RD 514)

Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick in Dragon (RD 514)

Hey guys! I'm so glad for this long weekend! I seriously need to catch up on sleep. In other news, my best friend is getting married soon and I'm on full time bridesmaid duty! I'm so excited!! Right after the wedding I also have a trip to Australia that I need to prepare for. It's going to be a mad month, hopefully I can keep up with blogging too! ^_^ Back to some lipstick love, here's one of the most underrated formulas you need to know about! I've spoken about the Shiseido Perfect Rouge formula…Read more
OPI The World Is Not Enough Nail Polish

OPI The World Is Not Enough Nail Polish

I feel like I've already spoken about this polish many times, but it was probably in favourites. I've loved this polish ever since I bought it, it definitely deserves it's own post! OPI The World Is Not Enough came out in the Skyfall collection (which is a pretty good collection anyway). It's OPI's microshimmer foil like formula that I really like, similar to Ink, Warm and Fozzie. It's actually a lot like a cool toned version of Warm and Fozzie (which is more bronze). The World Is Not Enough is a grey taupe kind…Read more
Cle de Peau Enriched Lip Luminizer in 203

Cle de Peau Enriched Lip Luminizer in 203

Hello there! I'm here to offer you some relief on this boring Wednesday. Let's talk about extravagant lipsticks! This particular lipstick was a definite splurge for me. If you're going to buy Cle de Peau, might as well buy it in Japan where it is cheaper. For me, the place I was shopping at was tax-exempt and had an additional discount for tourists. You can see where this is going... ;) Cle de Peau Enriched Lip Luminizer  in 203 (Chocolate Truffle) is essentially a sheer moisturising lipstick. Let's talk about the colour first which…Read more
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
