Hope you guys had a great weekend! Best to start off this week with a bit of wishful thinking! This is a more realistic wishlist for me because there are a few products that I might actually end up buying.
01. Origins : Face Mask : Drink Up 10 Minute Mask
Heard a lot of good stuff about this mask, might actually buy this. It’s a good hydrating mask.
02. Clinique : Blush : Cheek Pop Blush : Ginger Pop
I want these, hope they release soon in India. Ginger Pop looks like a perfect everyday blush.
03. Dior : Face Powder : Diorskin Nude Compact : Apricot Beige
I’m on the market for a new face powder. Should be light, little spf, a nice mirror, sturdy...
Hey guys! Is it raining in your city? I swear it’s been raining atleast once a month since October! It’s insane, but I’m not complaining! ^_^
Here are my favourites for Feb and Jan 2014! To be honest, this is a small favourites post because most of the things I’m using I’ve already covered multiple times in other posts!
01. Exfoliant : Dermalogica : Gentle Cream Cleanser
I’ve already reviewed it but it’s a really good chemical exfoliant. Love this!
02. Moisturizer : Korres : Wild Rose 24hr Moisturising Cream
This is very rich cream. I used this and the Clarins one in winter. You need a really tiny bit for this to...
I’ve been on a naughty haul! Well, technically, this is a collective haul over the last two months. Some of these are gifts since it was my birthday in Jan.
So I have a mix of blushes and went made over lipsticks mainly. I also got a couple of Formula X for Sephora nail polishes but I forgot to take pictures of those.
I really love everything I got. I’ve already used the mascara and the YSL lipstick in Ultimate Beige a lot, I love it! Burberry Beauty is something I was looking forward to buying. It’s expensive but it’s actually cheaper than Chanel, Dior or YSL. They have an incredible range and there’s a lot of focus on nudes as well.
Anyway, here’s the...
When it comes to blushes, I’m instantly attracted to the bright ones, the louder the better! But with time I’ve also found this certain browny plummy pink colour to suit me very well. I think Nars Douceur is one such blush but it has a bit of shimmer in it. I love the Tarte formula for blushes and picked up the very well received shade Exposed.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush are sheer blushes for the most part and very soft and buildable. The colours are either Matte or with shimmer. Exposed is a nude shade, a browny duty pink. It also has some traces of a plummy undertone as well. It looks amazing for nude looks and also if you want a blush that’s not in your...
Here’s a late January wishlist! I won’t be buying stuff anymore for atleast the next few months except essentials, so looking at this should calm me down.
01. Warehouse : Top : Knit top with lace front and embellishment
I’ve been eyeing this for a long time. It’s available on Koovs. Btw, does anyone keep getting those annoying phone calls from koovs.com the minute you add something in your cart? I feel like I should have bought this during the GOSF sale but on second thought, it’s not something I need.
02. Burberry : Perfume : Body EDP
I was also thinking of buying this from Koovs during GOSF more just left my cart empty at the end. I had a...
It feels incredibly weird to say, but today’s my birthday!! Happy Birthday to me!! Turning 25 today which is a bit depressing… mentally I think I’m still 10! Oh well, I’m supposedly more grown up and capable of sound rational decisions now, more so than last year! ^_^
I’m so glad my birthday is on a Saturday though, more time to go out and stuff.
For now, here are my favourites for December! I did a little haul last month which is kinda part of my birthday haul, so some new products are mentioned here. I’ve also posted my “Best of 2013” products post if you’re interested.
Photos and swatches!
01. Body Butter : Soap...
It’s almost the end of a year!! Not the most eventful one for me compared to others but in general my life was more settled and I was happier! I also loved blogging all year round and all the travelling I did!
Sentiments aside, this post is to celebrate the best stuff I liked using this year! There are a couple from last year that I still use but I thought I’d also talk about newer products I liked!
Laura Mercier Mineral Powder in Honey | Mac Face and Body Foundation in C4 | Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach
Mac Plum Foolery | Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed | Mac Peaches
Stila Merry & Bright Palette | Mac Quad | Inglot...
Hope you all had a great Christmas! I was out all day but I ate a lot of cake at the end of the day! ^_^
I love brushes from Sigma but I never really looked into their makeup products. The Creme De Couture collection came out and I was sold. This is one of the three blushes from the collection. You can see rest of the collection and swatches here.
The blush Cherry Apple is a really flattering peachy pink shade. On the pan it looks more like a deep coral pink but when you swatch it, the colour is a tinge lighter. Out of the three blushes, this one suits me the most and is definitely flattering on all skin tones.
It’s a matte powder blush but it gives a very natural flush and the...
Purely Pro is a brand I’d never really heard of, I got it in a Vellvette bag a couple of months back. I didn’t get a chance to use this too often. But every month I kind of dig into my collection and bring a couple of products out in front just so I’ll use them more often. This blush had a lucky month!
Purely Pro blushes come in a lot of shades, today I’m reviewing Lovely. It’s a midtone peachy pink. It’s a powder blush with no shimmer. It’s very soft in texture and blends well, leaves a matte finish.
These are sheer blushes that can be built up in terms of coverage. It will work well on light to medium skintones though you will have to build it up...
I had seen people rave so much about Sleek Makeup and I really wanted to try something from them. I definitely didn’t need eye shadows although their palettes are gorgeous! I opted for the Blush By 3. Three blushes and so cheap, why not! Plus, I can carry this with me when I travel, I get an option of 3 blushes in this compact case.
I’m reviewing Sleek Blush by 3 in the shade(s) Lace. It has 3 colours – Crochet, Guipure and Chantilly. It’s a nice mix of matte and shimmer blushes.
Crochet : This is a matte peachy orange colour. It’s not bright orange like Nars Taj Mahal but not as pastel as Mac Peaches. This falls somewhere in the middle and imparts a nice...
It’s been a while since I did a wishlist post. I wasn’t really holding out for stuff the last few months, a lot of my purchases were a combination of necessity and last minute splurge. My self control fails me sometimes. But since my birthday is in January, there a few things I’m eyeing…
Here’s the wishlist for November! Let me know what you’re coveting this month!
01. Guerlain : Blush : Madame Rougit 4 – Colors (Limited Edition)
Eep, so pretty! Clearly, nice packaging is my weakness. This shall remain strictly within the confines of a wishlist!
02. Essie : Nail Polish : For the Twill of it
I love duochromes, this one is grey...
What have we here? The glorious Sigma Creme de Couture Collection!
This macaroon inspired collection was just too good to pass up on! Have I mentioned how much I love macaroons and how adorable this collection looks?
The collection consists of a 16 eyeshadows palette and 3 separates blushes.
You can get this from Sigma Beauty. You can get all 3 blushes and the palette together (which is cheaper) or buy individual blushes and palette. Be sure to look for a discount code from a YouTuber or another beauty blogger, they generally have 10% discount codes all year round.
Some of my favourite eyeshadows are Redberry Rose, Passion fruit, Creme de Menthe and Cassis. These are definitely meant to...
I lot have a lot of different favourites this month, I’m mostly using stuff I’ve already shown before. But these are some everyday or occasion pieces I’ve enjoyed using the past month. Hope you all had a great Diwali! ^_^
01. Moisturiser : Clarins : HydraQuench Cream
I love how rich and soft this makes my skin. It’s perfect for winters and will last me all the way. It also smells lovely.
02. Blush : Nars : Deep Throat
The less shiny and peachy Orgasm. It gives a subtle pink flush with shimmer. Very soft on the skin.
03. Soap : Khadi : Aloe Vera and Jasmine
I’ve never really mentioned soaps on this blog before but I had an...
I wasn’t a very blush person until last year (for wearing everyday I mean). Peachy pinks, corals, plums, I love them all now. This is actually a blush I picked out for my mom and months went by, she still hadn’t used it. She finally surrendered it to me!
Mac Plum Foolery blush is from the Sheertone Shimmer finishes. It’s a sheer blush with fine microshimmer and is absolutely gorgeous. As the name suggests, it’s a plumy rose pink with gold shimmer. It’s the kind of colour that will show up and suit everyone. The sheen especially makes it really gorgeous.
The shimmer is very very fine and it doesn’t spread all over your face. You can build up the colour...
Time to spill your holy grails, products you can’t live without or just something new you tried this month! I was a bit adventurous with my eye makeup this month with bright purples.
My September 2013 Favourites -
Clockwise from Left : Inglot 439 Pearl, Inglot 415 Pearl, Mac Woodwinked, Mac Expensive Pink
01. Moisturizer : First Aid Beauty : Ultra Repair Cream
I love the scent of this cream and it’s very soft and effective. If you like Soap & Glory scents, you’ll like this too.
02. Body Mist : Nyassa : Passion Burst Body Mist
I mentioned this in my last favourites as well. I love using this in the second half of the day to feel...
