Nyx Butter Glosses

Nyx Butter Glosses

Sometimes you just want to believe a drugstore hype! I waited till the hype died down the Nyx Butter Glosses and went ahead with the purchase anyway. I blame eBay for giving me an amazing deal. I picked out three shades - Tiramisu : Pale pink and toffee kind of shade, it's a little too light for me. I'm wearing it by itself below but I generally wear a darker lip pencil underneath so it'll suit me better. Although it is quite pigmented, since it's lighter than my lip colour, it can look…Read more

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
Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Plum Lush

Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Plum Lush

Hey everyone! It's been a while! Hope you're all having a great weekend! I have a lot of catching up to do, I'll probably be glued to my laptop all weekend. Few lipsticks bring out such excitement in me! Plum Lush caught my eye ever since I first spotted it on Temptalia. Initially I scoffed at a lipstick costing $50. Funny how that changes. Every review of the Matte formula made the decision easier though. It was just a matter of when I'd get it. I put it off for a long time…Read more
Guerlain Gloss D’enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in Tangerine Vlam

Guerlain Gloss D’enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in Tangerine Vlam

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a good weekend! Time for a lip gloss moment. Guerlain Gloss D'enfer Maxi Shine Lip Glosses had been largely out of my radar for a very long time. When the Chanel Aqualumieres were discontinued, these were touted as an "adequate" substitute and obviously, I was interested. What followed was a mad dash to get this and few other shades. I'm sorted when it comes to lip glosses. I really love these, they're my favourite high end lip gloss formula after the YSL Glossy Stains. What I look for in…Read more
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boheme

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boheme

Hello there! Hope you're doing well! Let's talk about something completely unrelated first! My love for laser tag has reached embarrassing Barney Stinson heights. I enjoy hiding in corners and sneaking up on people. I'm not very good at close range duels though! Do you like hitting people with harmless beams too? I've spoken about my love for the Rouge Coco Shine formula when I reviewed Liberte. Here's take two! Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boheme is a sheer pink toned red, moisturising your lips all the way through the rather short 3 hour…Read more
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Intense Nude

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Intense Nude

Hi everyone! I'm loving the moderate rains here, it's not too humid and it's certainly not too hot! Never change! The last couple of weeks have been busy work wise but I've been keeping myself entertained by rearranging my makeup. It's so therapeutic. I also got rid of a bit of old makeup and I have a Back to Mac trip in the works. Which lipstick should I get? Speaking of lipsticks, get settled for another review. This time it's the well loved Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Intense Nude. I…Read more

June 2015 Favourites

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
The Peach Lip Edit

The Peach Lip Edit

So a while back, last winter, I had my sheer red lipstick phase. That's done with now. Time for peach! This is a tricky colour because if it's too light it doesn't look good on me, if it's too pink it ends up looking too coral. The best way that I've found for me to pull off peach is when it's sheer! For more opaque shades though, using a lip liner makes it more wearable. Here are my picks for peach lipsticks (and one lip gloss) that I've been loving this summer!   Time…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
Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Brun Bohéme

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Brun Bohéme

If there's one thing I miss while travelling, it's proper tea! Tea bags just don't do it me... Does anyone else feel this way? I'm settling in nicely now though. Back at work, all unpacked, I've just started loading in all the photos from the trip. This is quick review on Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Brun Bohéme. The colour here is key, a really nice brick red, rusty brown-red kind of colour. It looks muted and not too brown. Rouge Edition is quite an old range but at the time there weren't too many…Read more
