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
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
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50V

Biologique Recherche Lotion P50V

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a pleasant Monday. I mentioned in this in my skincare routine, but I was suffering from random acne on my chin that I could manage but would never fully go away. I thus came across exfoliating/acid toners and decided to purchase Biologique Recherche Lotion P50V since anyone who used it raved about it. Lotion P50V is formulated for sensitive skin as opposed to P50, which is widely used for other skin types. The other variant is P50W which is meant for mature skin. It has a watery consistency with a slight yellow tint. I…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

Clinique All About Eyes Rich Cream

Clinique All About Eyes Rich Cream

Hello there! I've gone almost 10 days without posting and that's very irregular for this blog! My work load has changed dramatically over the last month and there are a lot of personal engagements and travel in the months ahead as well. For a while things will be less structured schedule wise. I had my big skincare routine talk this month and one of the products I've been using is the Clinique All About Eyes Rich cream. I wasn't really using an eye cream before, my usual facial oil/moisturizer seemed to work just fine.…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
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. Till now I've only purchased a two lipsticks and one of them was from this range. :) This is a colour that's often overlooked by me but so pretty.
