China Glaze Frostbite Nail Polish

China Glaze Frostbite Nail Polish

It's the kind of colour that makes your heart skip a beat, shines in your eyes because it's so bright and pretty much blinds everyone else. China Glaze Frostbite is a really bright cobalt blue. The name frostbite for me indicates a icy white frosty kind of shade. But this one will do as well! It's like the poster colour blue you get in bottles with a pearlescent effect. The shimmer is a lighter blue which looks really amazing in direct light. The shimmer is not quite as complex as something like Chanel…Read more
Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Mystery

Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Mystery

Last week I reviewed the  Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Intrigue and now it's lighter cousin Mystery makes it's way. Mystery is a light nude pink. It's a light warm pink and has a dustiness to it. Similar to Intrigue, the lip gloss is sheer but buildable to medium. I think the shade is a good nude lip gloss for light and medium skintones. Might wash out darker ones. I have a comparison below but most of the nude lip glosses I have are much warmer and have brown in it like L'oreal…Read more
Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Intrigue

Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Intrigue

A couple months back I was at the Palladium Mall with the Chanel store in front of me. Damage was done and I picked up the Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Intrigue along with another shade called Mystery. Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer are lip glosses that come in a varity. You have sheer, opaque, shimmery, mega shimmery etc. Intrigue is a sheer to medium coverage lip gloss in a brick red or brown red kind of shade with no shimmer. It's much darker in the tube than it is on the lips. I feel like…Read more
Illamasqua Lipstick in Magnetism

Illamasqua Lipstick in Magnetism

The one good thing about Illamasqua (besides making good quality products) is that their sales are always reliable. I'd say almost a year ago I hauled 2 lipsticks and 2 nail polishes during a sale because I really wanted to try something the brand. I call these one of my weak blogger moments. Anyway, somehow I completely missed out on reviewing them but here's one gorgeous lipstick from the lot. Illamasqua Magnetism is a red berry or a deep raspberry shade. I also have a comparison below but it's a berry tone that's…Read more
Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict in Desert Rose

Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict in Desert Rose

Lakme is on a roll with new products this year. The latest range is Gloss Addict or Skin Gloss which has skincare and makeup. Absolute Gloss Addict are sheer glossy lipsticks and the variety of shades are actually really nice. Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict in Desert Rose is bright warm pink shade. It's not coral, nor is it cool toned, it's in the middle and I'm a bit surprised I don't have any shade like it already; it looks pretty dupeable. Although it's bright it's quite wearable as it's sheer and not close at…Read more
Mac Cream Color Base in Improper Copper

Mac Cream Color Base in Improper Copper

I was in the market for a cream highlighter a while back. I own the Mac paint pot in Rubenesque and colour wise I thought it would be such a good highlighter. When I came across Improper Copper at the Mac store, I tried it on, it looked so beautiful. The coppery gold highlight is something I don't own, mine are more silver. This was promptly purchased then! Mac's Cream Color Base are multipurpose products. They are sheer and buildable and can be used all over the face and along with other makeup…Read more
Zoya Trixie Nail Polish

Zoya Trixie Nail Polish

My love for my Zoyas is pretty well documented here, today I'm reviewing a brilliant shade called Trixie. Most of favorite Zoya polishes are either creme or dense microshimmers. This one clearly falls in the later and oh boy, it gives beautiful metallic foil like effect which is very reflective. As you might have guessed, it's a silver microshimmer polish. I also like there's no other tone to it like yellow or blue, it's straight up bright silver. The base is actually a bit sheer with very very dense microshimmer. Hence, you need…Read more
Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Gilded

Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Gilded

Time for another nail polish review! I really like collecting unique nail polishes, this one really caught my eye when I was going through ebay. Sinful Colors is a brand that makes very very affordable polish at $1.99. Their range is huge, competing with OPI and China Glaze; you can also find a lot of dupes! Despite the price, they are free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP which is another win! Going back to the review, here's the shade Gilded. So, it has red and gold glittery bits in a clear but slightly milky…Read more
Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner

Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner

Hope you guys are having a great weekend! Here's a product I bought from ASOS a while back, not sure if it's available in India yet but it should be! Rimmel is a really good affordable brand (especially now that all brands are jacking up their prices). The Scandaleyes range has some of the best eye products out there. Here's the Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner in black. It's basically a felt tip liner and the nib is a bit like a highlighter. It can be used in many ways to get the…Read more
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion

Hope you guys are having a great Sunday! I'm up earlier than usual today as I type this out while sipping hot tea. Today's review is of a great affordable lipstick. Rimmel's Moisture Renew range is really good bright colours and are good quality wise as well. Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion is a pretty pinky red shade. I'd say it looks a tad bit more pink in the tube but more red on the lips. You can see a comparison pic below, it's a bit more red than YSL Rose…Read more
