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
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
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
YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique

YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique

Hope you are all having a glorious weekend! Let's talk about an absolute winner of a lip product! YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique is a staining lip gloss in a medium peach shade with a bit of silver shimmer. I caved and bought this pretty late but I'm so glad I picked this colour. From the plethora of shades available, I feel it's the most unique! For me it's a lot like Chanel Liberte in a gloss! My love for peach lipsticks that actually suit me is new and growing. Corail Aquatique is…Read more
Just Swatches : Nars Blushes

Just Swatches : Nars Blushes

Hello there! I haven't done one of these in a while. I don't see myself buying anymore Nars blushes, I thought it would be a good time to do a collective post on them. I present to you, my Nars blush collection which is very dear to me! I was very new into makeup when I found myself attracted to Nars blushes, Douceur being the first one I picked out. I wasn't wearing blush regularly at the time and it's the first blush that made me get into the habit of applying blush…Read more
Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

Hope you're all having a great weekend! Time for a cult lipstick review! I'm not a very makeup trendy person and so when I heard of Black Honey I had no idea what people were talking about. As usual, my investigation started with a quick Google search, which led to swatches, which in turn led to reviews and in the end, I was sold. I couldn't find this at my local Clinique counter, so I ended up getting it during my birthday haul. Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey was apparently famous in the…Read more
Mac Pinch Me Blush

Mac Pinch Me Blush

Usually, when I go into Mac I have a specific list of things I want to try/buy. I once found myself in an empty Mac with no particular idea of what I wanted. I took my time swatching and perusing everything, looking at products I didn't already know the names of, till I landed my eyes on this! As far as blushes go, after a lot of experimentation, "my" colour is definitely earthy and muted. Mac Pinch Me is a lovely earthy mix of brown and red. It's a 'Sheertone' blush, sheer pigmentation…Read more
