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

Maybelline Lip Polish in Glam 1, Glam 6 and Glam 14

Hope all of you are having great weekend! ^_^ I was absent from the interwebs and the blog this week. I just moved to a new place and things are finally getting back to normal. It's been all about boxing, taping and unboxing. My thighs, lower back and neck are so sore. My nails look horrific. But, I love my new place and I can stay in my room all day forever. :) I've missed a couple of posts this week so I might try to squeeze them in next month. But for now,…Read more
Lakme Absolute Lip Tint in Candy Kiss

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint in Candy Kiss

Hello there! I can barely bring myself to do anything this Sunday and I have a million things on my list. Going to start ticking them off now, starting with blog stuff. :) Also thank you for the birthday wishes and your input on skincare. I'm not making any drastic changes to my routine but I guess I'm just going to be more observant about the changes. That involves a lot of time staring at myself in the mirror which won't be too hard. ;) I had previously reviewed the shade Orange Tease from…Read more

Estee Lauder Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Violet Electra

Happy New Year you guys! When this post is published I'm probably going to be nursing a hangover, but I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable New Year's Eve! Let me know what you did! I've been reading so many end of the year posts and it's all a bit emotional. My 2014 overall was great, some of my closest friends got married, I travelled to Goa, Jaipur, Japan and China, met up with a lot of friends scattered around the world. I lot of things went on like planning and designing…Read more
Best of Makeup 2014!

Best of Makeup 2014!

Hope everyone had lovely holidays! I think half my classmates got married just this weekend. I'm a very passive facebook user, logged in after a long time and the wedding photos were overwhelming! It was lovely though. :) Time to get teary eyed about all my favourites this year now! It took a long time to create this post, mainly because I went through my entire collection to pick things out. Ended up with 30 lipsticks that I narrowed down to around 10. Emotional heart-breaking decisions all over the place! I'm also positive that I've missed out…Read more
Lip Balm Army

Lip Balm Army

Winter dictates that all lip balms in the arsenal are to be released this time of the year. I think that's enough metaphors for one post. :) It doesn't get as cold as New Delhi in my city, but the air is very dry and even people with perfectly normal lips start having problems in winter. Here's what I use to keep my lips soft and nourished at all times.   The Essential You might have heard of Nuxe Reve de Miel plenty times by now. I'll keep it short and sweet. It's hydrating,…Read more
The Sheer Red Lipstick Edit

The Sheer Red Lipstick Edit

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I wanted to see The Hobbit but had so much stuff to do so I might catch a late night show this week. I'm kinda sad it's all ending though. So for the last two months, I've really really been loving sheer red lipsticks. I don't know what it is I always go through these phases where I have my usual chunk of nudes and bolds that I wear but on the side I have something else going on (lipstick wise). These are some of the…Read more
Mac Girl About Town Lipstick

Mac Girl About Town Lipstick

Hello there! I'm having a great start to the week, which doesn't happen very often! I'm actually moving to a new place in a month so I've been spending a lot of time looking at faucets, wall colours and door knobs. It's fun and frustrating at the same time! I'm the point where I just want everything to be done magically and finally move in! Today's lipstick is a firm favourite. I wanted it for years and bought it last year (thankfully before the price increase), it's Mac Girl About Town. Does this lipstick…Read more
Lakme Absolute Lip Tint in Orange Tease

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint in Orange Tease

It is officially winter in Pune, I had to bring out my fuzzy socks and a sweater during the day! Scarf season is here! ^_^ This is also the time for comfortable moisturising lipsticks and here's one product that fits the bill. Lakme Absolute Lip Tint in Orange Tease came out last year. I'm not exactly sure if these are limited edition because I can still see them online or on counters. The shade Orange Tease is a bright orange with a slight coral tint. It's not neon but it's definitely bright. If you…Read more
L’oreal Color Riche Nutri Shine Lipstick in Sandalwood Beige

L’oreal Color Riche Nutri Shine Lipstick in Sandalwood Beige

Hope you all having a great weekend! I'm excited to see Interstellar but first, a lovely nude lipstick review. L'oreal Color Riche Nutri Shine Lipstick is a range of sheer balmy lipsticks. The shade Sandalwood Beige is a peachy brown, sheer but still buildable to medium. The colour is nude but I think I can just pull if off. It will suit people with lighter skintones really well, it will wash out deeper ones. It's similar to Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel but still a bit lighter. It's medium in consistency and…Read more
