NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm

NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm

I'm sitting here all cozy in bed, fuzzy socks on my feet, warm sweater on and a nice cup of hot chocolate next to me (when it was written, not posted). It's the perfect mood to talk about a lip balm that makes be feel all warm and cozy. It has many names, like 'Holy Grail Lip Balm', 'The Matte Lip Balm', 'Saviour of Lips', but popularly known as Nuxe Reve de Miel. If you've already used this, feel free to just nod vigorously and express your love below. If you haven't, this…Read more
China Glaze Tempest Nail Polish

China Glaze Tempest Nail Polish

Hi guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! I had a bit of a closet purge, sorting out clothes for donation. Attacking the shoe closet next! You might already know, I have a thing for blurple nail polishes. I think I've found one with the perfect balance. Is it purple? Is it blue? I can't make up my mind and I love it! China Glaze Tempest is a pearlescent nail polish with a purple base and fine blue shimmer. The shimmer is a bit duochrome and shifts the blue tone from dark…Read more
Klorane Shampoo with Nettle

Klorane Shampoo with Nettle

I'm doing a hair related review after so long! I'm on a mission to get my hair back to the glory days. It was bouncy, thick and I needed to shampoo just once or twice a week. I want that back! I first mentioned this product in last month's favourites, time to do a full review. I've always had dry hair but I started developing an oily scalp a while back. That resulted in me shampooing more and it was a terrible cycle to break. I also have fine hair so any amount of…Read more
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

I've had this palette for a good six months now so I thought I'd review it. I was initially very sceptical about how the cool toned colours would look on me but I guess it can work if you balance it out with darker shades. For me, it also depends on the outfit and the kind of jewelry I'm wearing. Gold? Nope, won't be using this. Silver, rose gold? Yes! Anyway, moving on, the palette itself like the other Urban Decay palettes is great quality wise. There are a few shades that aren't…Read more

Inglot 439 Pearl Eyeshadow

I have a midweek trip to the mall and some damage will be done! feeling guilty even as I'm typing this but there are a bunch of things I've wanted for a long time! Anyway, speaking on nice things, here's one of the best eyeshadows in the market, Inglot 439 Pearl. It's a gorgeous cool toned purple eyeshadow with purple and at times blue micro shimmer. The pearl finish really makes this standout. It's the middle shade in my 5 pan palette. As you'd expect from Inglot, the eyeshadow is very pigmented indeed.…Read more
Zoya Alegra Nail Polish

Zoya Alegra Nail Polish

Happy Diwali to everyone! Hope you are all gorging on food and getting dolled up in the evenings! Here's a really pretty pink polish, Zoya Alegra. It's one of the formulas that will make you fall in love with Zoya, much like Valerie. It's a deep, almost red on the nails kind of pink. But it has that fuchsia tone to it. It also has a ton of micro shimmer ranging from silver to fuchsia, it also appears a bit gold  or more red toned due to the iridescence. It's quite captivating in person! Colourwise…Read more
Burberry ‘Lip Cover’ Soft Satin Lipstick in Dusty Rose

Burberry ‘Lip Cover’ Soft Satin Lipstick in Dusty Rose

Let's talk lipstick. One of my most prized possessions is this Burberry lipstick which is perfect to the T. Burberry 'Lip Cover' Soft Satin Lipstick in Dusty Rose is from Burberry's range of creamy hydrating lipsticks. Whilst they are similar to your Chanel, YSL in price range, they aren't too mainstream. I think particularly when it comes to neutral shades Burberry has a really great collection for all skintones. Dusty Rose is my kind MLBB, it's a warm medium rose pink. Similar to Mac Cosmo, Mac Fast Play and even Chanel Mademoiselle but…Read more
Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe Nail Polish

Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe Nail Polish

If I had to pick just one kind of makeup out of all to live with, I'd be nail polish. It's my first love and the fact that pretty much any colour will do is what makes it so special. I don't consider myself to be one with the best nails, I spend very little time grooming them. But I do love nail polish, always have. This particular one I've wanted for a very very long time. It was always on my wishlist and I can't tell you how excited I was when I…Read more
Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil

I love cleansing oils! It's a cleanser and makeup remover in one and it works brilliantly. For the longest time I was using the Origins Clean Energy Gentle Cleansing Oil and I eventually wanted to try something different. I had heard a lot of praises about the Shu Uemura one and decided to get it. While this was an expensive purchase, it's lasted me for so long and it's just the perfect cleansing oil. Before I review, I have to apologize for the appalling photos in this post. I'd already used up and thrown away…Read more
L’oreal Moist Matte Lipstick in Maple Mocha

L’oreal Moist Matte Lipstick in Maple Mocha

Hey guys! Hope the weekend is going well! ^_^ If you don't know already, I'm a huge fan of the L'oreal Moist Matte lipsticks. I've previously reviewed the shades Lincoln Rose and Glamour Fuchsia, time to review one of the few neutral shades in the range. L’oreal Moist Matte Lipstick in Maple Mocha is a straight up brown. I feel like it's a perfect terracotta kind of colour, it's that burnt orange kind of brown. I initially thought it would be a lot like Mac Mocha, but Mocha has a bit of pink…Read more
