Mac Frankly Scarlet Blush

Mac Frankly Scarlet Blush

The weekend is finally here! Hope you all had a good week! Today, I'm reviewing a much loved but sparingly used blush. Mac Frankly Scarlet is probably the scariest blush you'll encounter.  Another blush in this category is Nars Exhibit A but Frankly Scarlet with it's pinky red tone is very unique! You've probably noticed how bright it is. Mac Frankly Scarlet is a powder blush with a matte finish. It's also very pigmented and needs to be used with care to avoid clown cheeks. What I really like is the colour which is very…Read more
Sleek Blush by 3 in Pink Spirit

Sleek Blush by 3 in Pink Spirit

Hi guys! It's a late night as I write this, so this review might be a bit sloppy. Sleek is a great budget brand and they make really good blushes. I've previously reviewed another Bush by 3 in Lace, here's another variant called Pink Spirit. Pink Spirit as the name might suggest contains 3 shades ranging from plum to blinding hot pink. Overall, they are evenly pigmented and the quality is even across the board. Here are the three shades : Pink Parfait : The darkest shade among the three,, it's a plummy…Read more

August 2014 Favourites

It's that time of the month to share my favourites! I have a few unusual ones here, because I can't really bring myself to fully review a hand wash and a hand sanitizer. Let's get cracking!       01. Eye Cream : Clinique : All About Eyes Rich After my trip in June, my eye area was in serious trouble. It was extremely dry and I thought it might be best to start using an eye cream. Now, this is mainly for hydrating the area. Other concerns like dark circles ( mine…Read more
Jouer Mineral Powder Blush in Peach Bouquet

Jouer Mineral Powder Blush in Peach Bouquet

Jouer is a relatively unknown brand but it  came into prominence on You Tube last year. A lot of their products have been raved about and I picked up the Mineral Powder Blush to try. Jouer Mineral Powder Blush in Peach Bouquet is a really pretty peachy pink. It's a powder blush with very very minute gold microshimmer that doesn't really translate well on the cheeks. You can only notice it in the pan or up close. The colour is unlike anything I have and it has a very strong coral pink tone.…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
Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

There's a bit of guilt over this haul but I'm trying to push that aside as I write this! So, last month I went on a trip to Japan and China. I did a bit of shopping at Hong Kong airport and more drugstore shopping in Japan. Shiseido has multiple brands under the umbrella and I really wanted to buy them there. A bit of a note about where I shopped in Japan if you're interested. I was at Fort Venus ( in Odaiba) which was next to my hotel. I discovered they…Read more
What’s In My Bag : Travel Edition

What’s In My Bag : Travel Edition

On my review posts I'm always talking about how travel friendly products are etc. Since I spent the better half of last month doing just that, I thought I'd do a 'What's in my purse' instead of the usual monthly favorites! Let's dig in! I mainly carried 3 bags. The red one with two transparent sides was for keeping makeup. I kept the products on one side and the brushes on the other. The pink one was also kept in my luggage and it contained skincare stuff, perfume etc. And lastly, the gorgeous…Read more
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar

This has got to be one of the cutest cosmetic items I own. It's so light and small, very prone to getting lost in my purse but overall a pretty good blush. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar is described as a peachy pink but honestly, on me it's more of a light rosy pink. This supposedly also has skincare benefits, which not what I bought it for so, I can't really review that aspect of this product. It's a cream blush which turns to powder and gives a matte finish. Unlike…Read more

May 2014 Favourites

It's time for the monthly favourites. There are a couple of new and old items here. I was way into my Mac lipsticks last month especially Girl About Town!         01. Nail Polish : Max Factor : Fantasy Fire Have I not raved about this polish enough? Click and see the review for some duochrome awesomeness.   02. Nail Polish : China Glaze : Fast Track I love this neutral polish. The formula, the gold shimmers, it's perfect.   03. Blush : Nars : Douceur I'm going back to some…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
