Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask

Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask

Hey everyone! Let's talk skincare! After my disaster with the Origins mask, it was a relief to find a deep cleansing mask that didn't dry me out horribly. Everyone, meet the Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask. Heavily lavender scented, it's a very light olive (pista) coloured soft clay mask. It's a bit clumpy and thick in consistency but easy to distribute. I leave it on for 10 minutes, by then the mask is almost white in colour with no uncomfortable stretchiness! It does feel a bit tight, but an adequate amount. I usually rinse it off a…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

Hope you're all having a great weekend! I'm going to keep this review short and sweet! When I started out with lipsticks Maybelline Colorsensational where one of my first ones.

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in Bronze

Hey guys! Hope you're week is going well! I'm super busy and tired these days. I know I just took a break last month but I need another! One of my 2014 favourites was this CC cream which I use as my everyday base.  Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in Bronze great lightweight base if you don't like wearing foundation. I actually find it somewhere in between a foundation and a tinted moisturizer. It's available in four shades and I'm using the darkest one. It's a little bit darker than Mac C4. I think it…Read more
YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey

YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey

When it comes to concealer, I've rarely strayed from the my power duo (Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach and Mac Moisture Select in NW35). Curiosity and hype got the better of me when I purchased this. YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey (5) is a concealer/brightener/highlighter all wrapped up in a pen. I'm going to specifically talk about using this as a concealer. The shade is a little more orange than my skin tone but I figured that would help with colour correction. The other shades were too pink or way off for…Read more
Nars Audacious Lipstick in Grace

Nars Audacious Lipstick in Grace

I'm back from my much needed break! Morjim beach was amazing! The rest of Goa was way too crowded due to the long weekend but Morjim is far away and it was just the right amount of crowd. The beach is very clean although the waves are a bit more "angry" than the rest of Goa. Still, it was an amazing holiday. We were probably the only Indians there, it's still weird to find every single menu and sign in Russian! The lipstick I'm reviewing today was in a recent haul. I fell…Read more

China Glaze Water You Waiting For Nail Polish

Hey guys! It's been a fun weekend so far! I saw The Imitation Game, I'm planning my Goa trip and to top it off, Man City lost which means Chelsea are in the clear! :D I got to do the fun part of unboxing this weekend, organizing my closet and makeup. I finally have a good amount of space where I can lay things out the way I've always wanted to. I cannot tell you, the amount of time spent in research and self reflection to finally draw up a plan of how I…Read more

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
Essie On A Silver Platter Nail Polish

Essie On A Silver Platter Nail Polish

Hello there! I basically went missing from the internet for the past few days. I was out of Pune for 3 days and also had my birthday on Sunday (the 4th), which kept me busy. Overall it was lovely, had loads of cake, met up with friends and a nice romantic dinner. My boyfriend got me something from one of my wishlists! Probably the only time he visits the blog! :p So yea, I'm 26 now. Should be looking into anti-aging stuff? Any changes you did in your routine once you crossed that '25'…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
