Mac Select Moisture Cover Concealer in NW35

Mac's Select Moisture Cover Concealer is undoubtedly one of the best in the market and one of my favourites for sure. Now before I go ahead with the review, I should tell you know that I have a lot of discolouration around my nose and undereye. Coupled with this, I have deep set eyes which makes shadows appear under my eyes. To counter this I generally have a two-step process to apply concealer. I first apply a darker red based concealer to mask the discolouration and then I use the Select Moisture concealer…Read more

Inglot XL7 and Filthy Gorgeous in Twilight

So finally, a review of the highly esteemed Inglot XL7. The beauty of those pretty blue glitters is very hard to notice when worn bare (which I like all the same). I've used a Filthy Gorgeous black polish named 'twilight' as a base. I'll talk about XL7 first. It's pretty much worth the money I think. I haven't found glitter polish in the exact shades of blue glitter as this, which if you know me at all, you should know that I LOVE blue polishes. The shimmers are blue, light blue and silver…Read more

Nars Orgasm Illuminator

Highlighters are a wonderful thing! They make you shiny and it looks so pretty when your face catches the light and something glimmers! I cannot praise Nars Illuminator enough!! It's the perfect highlighter or blush as you choose to use it. Orgasm is a beautiful peachy pink highlighter. When you put this on, it feels so cool to touch and so smooth. It brings a nice gold sheen. I don't always wear blush, but I love highlighters! It's sheer and blends quite easily. There is one snag though. This doesn't fade well. After…Read more

Bath & Body Works Moonlight Path Triple Moisture Body Cream

I wish bath and Body works was in India. The Body Shop needs some competition! That said, I love their products and fragrances. I will describe more in detail below but the consistency and staying power of their moistuizers and body lotions is why I like them best. I've found that it precisely does what I need for my skin. So I product I'm reviewing is from the Moonlight Path range. It's the Triple Moisture Body Cream. The cream itself is extremely soft and almost like an emulsion. It gets a lotion form…Read more

China Glaze Four Leaf Clover

When Mulberry Alexa exploded on the scene, I wanted the watermelon one so badly!! Instead, I bought China Glaze Four Leaf Clover! The colour is a total dupe! And I love it! When it comes to spring colours, I love pastel colour but I don't think they look that good with my skin tone. Instead the slightly darker bright colours suit me more. This is definitely one of them! I have to give you a warning though, the colouring in the photographs is slightly off. I tried with 3 different cameras and all…Read more

Burberry Brit Perfume

Summer is here! And I hate it already! It's so dry, I feel like I'm melting everytime I step out in the sun. An essential for this summer is definitely a light, long staying perfume! Burberry Brit (for women) is one of my favourite perfumes for daywear. The fragrance is like a mix of vanilla, citrus and floral scents. It has a long staying power. It lasts throughout the working day but it's not too strong an odour either. Won't make people hate the smell, but it leaves a distinct scent which is…Read more

Essie Aruba Blue

I'm a nail polish junkie. Every weekend, I have my sacred "me time" routine of watching a movie or something and painting my nails. This week, I'm wearing Essie's Aruba Blue on my nails. Its a gorgeous deep blue with greenish navy undertones. It also has blue microshimmer. Its not royal blue or electric blue like China Glaze Frostbite; more towards navy. Its quite opaque. But you do need 2 coats. It's has a nice sheen to it, even without a topcoat. Adding one just makes it super glossy. It lasts for atleast…Read more
