Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Gilded

Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Gilded

Time for another nail polish review! I really like collecting unique nail polishes, this one really caught my eye when I was going through ebay. Sinful Colors is a brand that makes very very affordable polish at $1.99. Their range is huge, competing with OPI and China Glaze; you can also find a lot of dupes! Despite the price, they are free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP which is another win! Going back to the review, here's the shade Gilded. So, it has red and gold glittery bits in a clear but slightly milky…Read more
Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner

Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner

Hope you guys are having a great weekend! Here's a product I bought from ASOS a while back, not sure if it's available in India yet but it should be! Rimmel is a really good affordable brand (especially now that all brands are jacking up their prices). The Scandaleyes range has some of the best eye products out there. Here's the Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner in black. It's basically a felt tip liner and the nib is a bit like a highlighter. It can be used in many ways to get the…Read more
Mac Contrast Eyeshadow

Mac Contrast Eyeshadow

Something about Mac eyeshadows gives you the feeling like you're holding something precious. It's well founded with other eyeshadows like Woodwinked, Expensive Pink etc. But with Contrast, I'm not too sure. From the plethora of finishes and colours, Contrast is a velvet finish eyeshadow. The colour is really something. It's like a dark blue, almost black base with very fine blue pearly microshimmer. I like that the blue is very cool-toned, no hint of navy or green in it. The finish is slightly matte and I like the  matte base with shimmer kind…Read more
Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania in Dazzling Diva, Red Carpet and Starry Night

Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania in Dazzling Diva, Red Carpet and Starry Night

So if you've been reading the blogs, everyone's going crazy over the new Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania nail polishes! They might just be the best thing launched in the new year so far! I may be a budding lipstick addict but I'm still a nail polish addict at heart. Add glitter into the mix and I'm floored. Ever since the textured nail polishes were launched, all the expensive ones like OPI Liquid Sand, Zoya Pixie Sand just aren't very easily available in India. But the Colorshow ones are amazing quality and the…Read more
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

For the longest time, sunscreen (or rather it's application) has always been something I knew I should use but never did. Even in school my skin could react to extreme exposure and those were telling signs that I needed to take care of my skin. I guess my knowledge and interest about such things improved when I started reading beauty blogs and ultimately I could no longer put it off. I had used a few sunscreens before this and I hated the experience. It made me look shiny, or there was a whitecast,…Read more
Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise

Hey guys! I'm currently working on a new layout for Xuvious. It may very well be a marathon coding weekend for me! Today's review is from Josie Maran which is a natural products range. It's a mouthful, but here's the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise. A what? It's just a cream blush but the consistency in the pot is jelly like. It's similar to the Canmake Cream Blushes but thinner. Of course, it doesn't move around like a jelly, but it's very smooth to touch. The blush is very sheer…Read more
Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten

Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten

The monsoons are properly here! That makes me a happy bunny! Today I'll be reviewing Stila's Lip Glaze in the shade Kitten. I got this with the Merry & Bright Palette. The shade Kitten is a cult favourite. Originally in eyeshadow form, it's a warm peach shimmer and really beautiful. In a lip gloss form, it's a great layering shade and also pretty on its own if you don't mind a ton of shimmer. Lip Glaze is basically a lip gloss but these come with a pen like packaging, similar to YSL Touche…Read more
Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

There's a bit of guilt over this haul but I'm trying to push that aside as I write this! So, last month I went on a trip to Japan and China. I did a bit of shopping at Hong Kong airport and more drugstore shopping in Japan. Shiseido has multiple brands under the umbrella and I really wanted to buy them there. A bit of a note about where I shopped in Japan if you're interested. I was at Fort Venus ( in Odaiba) which was next to my hotel. I discovered they…Read more
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion

Hope you guys are having a great Sunday! I'm up earlier than usual today as I type this out while sipping hot tea. Today's review is of a great affordable lipstick. Rimmel's Moisture Renew range is really good bright colours and are good quality wise as well. Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion is a pretty pinky red shade. I'd say it looks a tad bit more pink in the tube but more red on the lips. You can see a comparison pic below, it's a bit more red than YSL Rose…Read more
Just Swatches : OPI Nail Polish

Just Swatches : OPI Nail Polish

Time for another swatch post! Here's my collection of OPI nail polishes. You'll notice most of them are dark, murky colours. I really like their shimmer polishes, I don't have too many brights. It's too difficult for me to pick a favourite because I like so many of them. But my most worn colours are probably Parlez-Vous, Ink, My Private Jet and The World Is Not Enough.   01. Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ - It's a creme finish and a perfect fall colour, a lovely vampy burgundy. 02. Every Month is Oktoberfest - This…Read more
