Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream

Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream

I've been a moisturizer  hopper ever since I started the blog. While I've found good lightweight moisturizers for the summer/travelling (Avene Smoothing Rebalancing Emulsion), when it comes to winter I still haven't found the one. Here's the latest one I've tried. Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream was on my wishlist for a long time. I really wanted to try the brand and the day cream,  it generally had great reviews, seemed like the safest option. Did the deed when I had a voucher on FeelUnique. The minute you open it up, the first thing…Read more
Maybelline Lip Polish in Glam 1, Glam 6 and Glam 14

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

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
The Body Shop Glazed Apple Range

The Body Shop Glazed Apple Range

The best thing about having friends who celebrate Christmas is getting to eat the lovely cakes they bake. On that note, hope you all had a lovely Christmas/holidays. :) The Body Shop recently released limited edition ranges : Glazed Apple, Frosted Cranberry and Vanilla Brulee. I was all over the Glazed Apple range. I was running out of my Blueberry Body Butter anyway, it was perfect timing. I've used these for the last 2-3 weeks, so these are mini reviews. They're still available on the main website. Glazed Apple Body Butter I love the…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
Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick in 129

Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick in 129

This is going to be a quick review of  a lipstick that was supposed to go up about three months ago! You all probably recognize the Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick. I just think Lakme lipsticks are so engraved in memory because all the moms and aunts used to have them. I remember the green packaging from the 90's. Anyway, I digress. These lipsticks are possibly the most affordable at the moment and their creamy formula is actually really good. Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick in 129 is a really great nude shade for Indian skintones.…Read more
Illamasqua Lipstick in Atomic

Illamasqua Lipstick in Atomic

I had always wanted to try Illamasqua lipsticks and Atomic was one shade that I was always attracted to. Illamasqua Atomic is a bright warm pink but with a frosty purple sheen. It's described as a fuchsia violet which is quite accurate but it's on the warmer side. I'd say it's one of the few frosty lipsticks in my collection. But I don't think it looks tacky like the very pearlescent frosty ones. The sheen is purple or pink depending on the lighting and it looks amazing, there's also some shimmer in there.…Read more
Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask

Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask

You might look at this and think it kind of looks similar to Soap & Glory. That's what I thought when I across Dirty Works. Same retro wit product lines but Dirty Works is like the less expensive sister of Soap & Glory. I came across the range on MedPlusBeauty eons ago and I bought a couple of the products. Clearly, I was in my blogger exploring mood. The Dirty Works Vitamin C Brightening Mask  is basically a face mask and a scrub. The scrub part is something I realised after buying it.…Read more
Mac Contrast Eyeshadow

Mac Contrast Eyeshadow

Something about Mac eyeshadows gives you the feeling like you're holding something precious. It's well founded with other eyeshadows like Woodwinked, Expensive Pink etc. But with Contrast, I'm not too sure. From the plethora of finishes and colours, Contrast is a velvet finish eyeshadow. The colour is really something. It's like a dark blue, almost black base with very fine blue pearly microshimmer. I like that the blue is very cool-toned, no hint of navy or green in it. The finish is slightly matte and I like the  matte base with shimmer kind…Read more
Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten

Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten

The monsoons are properly here! That makes me a happy bunny! Today I'll be reviewing Stila's Lip Glaze in the shade Kitten. I got this with the Merry & Bright Palette. The shade Kitten is a cult favourite. Originally in eyeshadow form, it's a warm peach shimmer and really beautiful. In a lip gloss form, it's a great layering shade and also pretty on its own if you don't mind a ton of shimmer. Lip Glaze is basically a lip gloss but these come with a pen like packaging, similar to YSL Touche…Read more
