Guide to Berry Lips

Guide to Berry Lips

If you are uncomfortable around an excessive amount of lipsticks, please retreat! This post is only for the brave! I'm hoping, that this post will help you pick out or discover colours you'd like for your fall/autumn/winter looks. Now I don't strictly follow seasonal trends but overall, I thought this post would be helpful to discover berry toned lipsticks (and other lip products). We're gonna work in three parts here.   Part One : Just Give Me Lipsticks To Look At Umm... ok. Here you go.     Part Two : I Don't…Read more
Inglot 439 Pearl Eyeshadow

Inglot 439 Pearl Eyeshadow

I have a midweek trip to the mall and some damage will be done! feeling guilty even as I'm typing this but there are a bunch of things I've wanted for a long time! Anyway, speaking on nice things, here's one of the best eyeshadows in the market, Inglot 439 Pearl. It's a gorgeous cool toned purple eyeshadow with purple and at times blue micro shimmer. The pearl finish really makes this standout. It's the middle shade in my 5 pan palette. As you'd expect from Inglot, the eyeshadow is very pigmented indeed.…Read more
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Plumrose

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Plumrose

It's hill station weather in Pune for the past few days and I'm perfectly content with bringing out my sweaters and scarves. Hope it stays the same for months to come! I had done a Just Swatches post with my Milani Colorstatement lipsticks and this one really stood out. Milani Colorstatement Lipsticks come in a variety of colours and finishes. Plumrose is deep pink in a creme finish. I feel it's a very safe colour that would be appropriate for any occasion. Despite the name "plum" I actually think it's a warm colour and…Read more
Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease

I'm feeling particularly lethargic this weekend. I'm hoping some more Diwali food is going to cure that! Meanwhile, here's something from my lipstick stash, Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate lip crayons. The fact that I feel like I'm applying markers to myself is enough to make me giddy. Tease from the Lacquer Balm range is a burnt orange kind of shade with zero shimmer. The orange is a bit deeper which, I feel,  makes it easier to wear. I have comparison swatches below but as you can…Read more
Just Swatches : Revlon Lip Butters

Just Swatches : Revlon Lip Butters

Welcome to the swatchfest! I think Revlon Lip Butters are the bomb and still very affordable now at Rs. 600, as 800 is almost the norm for new lipsticks now. They're sheer, very thin in consistency, lightweight on the lips and very very glossy. Of course, not the most longlasting but these are sheer. not going to say more here since you can read the individual reviews if you are interested in a particular shade. My favourites are Pink Truffle, Raspberry Pie and Juicy Papaya! I think Cotton Candy was a very unnecessary purchase…Read more
Zoya Alegra Nail Polish

Zoya Alegra Nail Polish

Happy Diwali to everyone! Hope you are all gorging on food and getting dolled up in the evenings! Here's a really pretty pink polish, Zoya Alegra. It's one of the formulas that will make you fall in love with Zoya, much like Valerie. It's a deep, almost red on the nails kind of pink. But it has that fuchsia tone to it. It also has a ton of micro shimmer ranging from silver to fuchsia, it also appears a bit gold  or more red toned due to the iridescence. It's quite captivating in person! Colourwise…Read more
Burberry ‘Lip Cover’ Soft Satin Lipstick in Dusty Rose

Burberry ‘Lip Cover’ Soft Satin Lipstick in Dusty Rose

Let's talk lipstick. One of my most prized possessions is this Burberry lipstick which is perfect to the T. Burberry 'Lip Cover' Soft Satin Lipstick in Dusty Rose is from Burberry's range of creamy hydrating lipsticks. Whilst they are similar to your Chanel, YSL in price range, they aren't too mainstream. I think particularly when it comes to neutral shades Burberry has a really great collection for all skintones. Dusty Rose is my kind MLBB, it's a warm medium rose pink. Similar to Mac Cosmo, Mac Fast Play and even Chanel Mademoiselle but…Read more
Korres Holiday in Greece Kit

Korres Holiday in Greece Kit

A while back I purchased this travel size set and I've used quite a few times in the past year. Korres is a Greek Pharmacy brand and I do like their skincare and bath products though I haven't tried a lot before. This set was also a good opportunity to try a bunch of things. Korres Holiday in Greece Kit comes with a shampoo, 2 showergels, 1 body butter and 1 body milk. I do wish there was a conditioner instead of 2 shower gels though. I'm going to do mini reviews of…Read more
Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe Nail Polish

Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe Nail Polish

If I had to pick just one kind of makeup out of all to live with, I'd be nail polish. It's my first love and the fact that pretty much any colour will do is what makes it so special. I don't consider myself to be one with the best nails, I spend very little time grooming them. But I do love nail polish, always have. This particular one I've wanted for a very very long time. It was always on my wishlist and I can't tell you how excited I was when I…Read more
Mac Frankly Scarlet Blush

Mac Frankly Scarlet Blush

The weekend is finally here! Hope you all had a good week! Today, I'm reviewing a much loved but sparingly used blush. Mac Frankly Scarlet is probably the scariest blush you'll encounter.  Another blush in this category is Nars Exhibit A but Frankly Scarlet with it's pinky red tone is very unique! You've probably noticed how bright it is. Mac Frankly Scarlet is a powder blush with a matte finish. It's also very pigmented and needs to be used with care to avoid clown cheeks. What I really like is the colour which is very…Read more
