August 2015 Favourites

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a pleasant start to the weekend! After posting this I'm going to enjoy some much needed me time with a face mask and painting my nails while catching up on Made In Chelsea. I honestly don't know why I watch it. I think it's the outfits and Lucy Watson snark that draws me in. Also, my pictures turned out really dull this time round, mirroring the weather outside.   01. Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation in Beige 40 :: Review :: I've mentioned this many times before, but if…Read more
Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet

Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet

There's almost this sense of accomplishment you get when you find a bargain worth well beyond its value. Sadly, I often tend to lose these gems in my makeup drawer. I bought Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet a year ago, used it for a few months and forgot about it. Thankfully, my democratized monthly makeup rotation helped me rediscover it and I've been on a mission to use it up. Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paints were probably released last year. Along with Maybelline Color Tattoos it was the next great drugstore product. Among…Read more
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils

Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils

Hello! Hope you're all having a lovely weekend! Nyx Jumbo Pencils are a great effective budget option for cream eyeshadows. I have three shades with me, Black Bean, Strawberry Milk and Yogurt. Overall, these are very pigmented, creamy and easy to blend with almost no fallout. They do sheer out easily and can be layered. These crease on me after maybe 5-6 hours but personally, I love using these as a base with an eyeshadow over it. I rarely use them on their own. Black Bean : It's a matte black shade that's very…Read more

It's favourites time again! I tried to not include everything from my haul, but there's a lot from it.   01. Pai Camellia & Rose Ultra Hydrating Cleanser :: I used up my Ren Milk Cleanser and it was time to finally start using this. I'm very impressed. I like the consistency, my skin never feels too dry after using it. It's very gentle around the eyes as well. I generally use this in the mornings and second cleanse in the evening. I also love the packaging and the pump really generates the…Read more
Summer Haul

Summer Haul

Spanning 90 days and multiple cities, here's what I spent most of my money on this summer. I have used a few of these already so expect mostly raves! Highlight of the post is that I finally caved and bought Tom Ford!! I'm so pleased!! I feel complete. Kat Von D  Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in BauHau5 :: from Sephora (US) :: Intriguing shade name here! Here's how this started. Before KVD the only liquid lipstick that was transfer and kiss proof was the LimeCrime one. I refuse to buy LimeCrime and so my hunt began. For the…Read more

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
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

My idea of getting through the work midweek is making plans for the weekend! It's all decided, I'm going to be cooped up in my room watching the rest of House of Cards. All I want is Robin Wright's wardrobe! Meanwhile, you can take a peek at what I've been loving the past month. This is going to be a long favourites post! I think it's the first one for 2015. Let's just jump in!   01. Guerlain Gloss D'enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in Candy Strip :: I haven't reviewed this gloss yet…Read more
Lorac PRO Palette

Lorac PRO Palette

Yes, I'm finally reviewing this. You've probably heard all praises about this already. Time to hear it all just once more. Let's start with the basics. You get 16 eyeshadows which include 8 mattes and 8 shimmer shades.  Should keep everyone happy! Excellent colour selection which would work on all skintones. Also a good mix of warm and cool toned shades without being too extreme. The consistency is very buttery smooth. It almost feels creamy when you touch them. I find them creamier than the Urban Decay eyeshadows and the L'oreal Infallible ones.…Read more
Goa Beauty Essentials

Goa Beauty Essentials

It's time for my annual pilgrimage to Goa. Four days of sun, sand, cheap booze and even cheaper petrol! The weather right now is as pleasant as it can get, it's going to be perfect! Every year we go to a different beach and this time we'll be exploring Morjim and Ashwem. Let me know your favourite Goa haunts! I'm excited! This time I thought I'd put up an 'Essentials' post, also a good excuse to discuss travel minis. I pretty much carry a similar amount of things when I travel there (or anywhere else).…Read more
