Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania in Dazzling Diva, Red Carpet and Starry Night

Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania in Dazzling Diva, Red Carpet and Starry Night

So if you've been reading the blogs, everyone's going crazy over the new Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania nail polishes! They might just be the best thing launched in the new year so far! I may be a budding lipstick addict but I'm still a nail polish addict at heart. Add glitter into the mix and I'm floored. Ever since the textured nail polishes were launched, all the expensive ones like OPI Liquid Sand, Zoya Pixie Sand just aren't very easily available in India. But the Colorshow ones are amazing quality and the…Read more
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

For the longest time, sunscreen (or rather it's application) has always been something I knew I should use but never did. Even in school my skin could react to extreme exposure and those were telling signs that I needed to take care of my skin. I guess my knowledge and interest about such things improved when I started reading beauty blogs and ultimately I could no longer put it off. I had used a few sunscreens before this and I hated the experience. It made me look shiny, or there was a whitecast,…Read more
Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise

Hey guys! I'm currently working on a new layout for Xuvious. It may very well be a marathon coding weekend for me! Today's review is from Josie Maran which is a natural products range. It's a mouthful, but here's the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise. A what? It's just a cream blush but the consistency in the pot is jelly like. It's similar to the Canmake Cream Blushes but thinner. Of course, it doesn't move around like a jelly, but it's very smooth to touch. The blush is very sheer…Read more
Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lasting Satin Lip Color in Pink 512

Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lasting Satin Lip Color in Pink 512

Hey guys! I'm back from my break! I had an amazing trip to Japan and China, but now I'm dead tired. It's been just naps and World Cup matches for me this weekend. Anyway here's a review of a really well made lipstick. Giorgio Armani has a really amazing makeup line. The lipsticks, foundations, Eyes to Kill eyeshadows are all really worth the extra moolah. Today I'm reviewing the Rouge D'Armani Lasting Satin Lip Color in Pink 512. It's a medium cool toned pink which is very flattering on light and medium skintones. For…Read more
The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter

The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter

I really like the limited edition stuff that The Body Shop comes out with. This came out in fall I think, I'm hoping they release it again soon! Also, the Blueberry range is available at the moment! It's amazing, seriously, go buy it! Coming back to the review, here's The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter. It's a heavenly, heavenly peach fragrance which is so refreshing! Honestly, it's like slathering peach ice tea on yourself. Suffice to say, I definitely getting this again when it comes out. It's light peach in colour and very…Read more
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in 52 Beige Rose

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in 52 Beige Rose

So before I go on and talk about this foundation, this post will also serve as an outlet for a mini rant about the World Cup. My routine is so messed up, I stay up everyday till 2-3! Concealer saves the day! Watching Spain concede 5 goals was torture. :( That said, the Sony Six pre-show Cafe Rio coverage is the worst television I've ever seen. I seriously miss ESPN-Star and John Dykes. Getting rid of John Abraham and bringing in Sunil Chhetri made it bearable. I'm still not happy though. They don't…Read more
Nyx Cream Blush in Tea Rose

Nyx Cream Blush in Tea Rose

Hope you guys had a great weekend! I watched X-men and did a bit of window shopping. Went to the Mac store in Pune and was informed that the second one in Phoenix Market City is now up and running! I'm hoping they'll have everything in stock! I really want to buy Mac Texture. The Maleficent collection is also out but I didn't feel like buying any of them. Okay, I'll stop rambling now. Something snapped in my brain a few months ago and on a whim I decided to buy Nyx blushes…Read more
Mac Satin Taupe Eyeshadow

Mac Satin Taupe Eyeshadow

If you've been reading any beauty blog long enough, you've probably heard of this eyeshadow a million times. Mac eyeshadows are overall pretty good but some are exceedingly well made; Satin Taupe is one of them. It's a frost finish but formula wise it feels similar to the Veluxe Pearl range. The colour is something that would work on absolutely anyone. It's a grey taupe with a hint of brown. The silver pearlescent shimmer also gives it a more rich look. It's a colour that can work really well as a transition colour. For a…Read more
Nars Blush in Deep Throat

Nars Blush in Deep Throat

Nars blushes are a weakness for me! I got this particular one in a giftset and it's a very flattering shade. Nars Deep Throat is light peachy pink powder blush with gold shimmer. Deep Throat and Orgasm come from the same "peachy pink with gold" family but Deep Throat is a lot lighter. It's more pink whereas Orgasm is more peachy. This also has less sheen and shimmer than Orgasm. If you ever found Orgasm to be a bit too shimmery, you might prefer this one. The warm pink tone with gold shimmer…Read more
China Glaze Fast Track Nail Polish

China Glaze Fast Track Nail Polish

There's going to be an onslaught of nail polish reviews this month, starting with this one! I love my neutral murky polishes and this one is a great colour. China Glaze Fast Track was released with the Hunger Games collection. It's a beige neutral with tons of gold microshimmer. I love how the shimmer spreads evenly and really makes this colour no so boring. The polish is sheer and the consistency is thin. You get 2-3 coats to get a nice opaque look but it looks very smooth and even. The thin coats…Read more
