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...
I don’t have too many few favourites for the last month. A lot of it is stuff I’ve been using for a while but failed to mention before.
August Favourites :
01. Body Mist : Nyassa : Passion Burst Body Mist (not pictured)
I got this in a Vellvette box and I’ve been keeping this in my office. I love the grapefruit scent, it’s very refreshing. The tiny bottle also makes it easy to carry on the go!
02. Toner : Avene : Gentle Toner
My previous one was very drying, but this one is so gentle and removes any leftover dirt and grime easily. I’ve really been loving Avene products, completely worth it.
03. Foundation : Mac : Face and...
I cannot rave about Stila products enough! They have awesome stuff at decent prices. If you find still find them expensive, they are pretty much always on sale on some website!
I was finding my travel makeup bag getting larger and I really wanted a palette of some sort just to organize better. Generally, while travelling I don’t have a lot of time for makeup anyway. It’s just handy to have everything in one place rather than scouring through my bag for the right eye/cheek/lip combo! I bought this palette from Asos along with a Lip Glaze. It was 45% off and I think I got it for£5 instead of £12.50! BEST.BARGAIN.EVER.
Stila Merry and Bright Palette was a part of one of their...

It’s that time of the month when I tempt you (and mostly myself) to break the bank and spoil ourselves! Crap, I also realised I forgot to change the ‘July Wishlist’ to ‘August Wishlist’. I hope you’ll excuse that! This is what happens when I try to blog on a Sunday morning without my tea.
1. Josie Maran : Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee : Poppy Paradise
I read loads about these but my inner child just wants to rub jelly on my cheeks and feel pretty. That’s pretty much why I want this. Feel free to mock me.
2. Cirare : Mid Summer Night : Grande Clutch
I came across this when I saw someones tweet and my gosh,...
The past month I’ve been sticking to very muted and everyday colours. I discovered a brilliant lip combo that I cannot stop using and some old favourites which need another mention.
July favourites :
01. Moisturizer : Forest Essentials : Night Treatment Cream : Sandalwood and Saffron
This smells heavenly! This isn’t the thickest cream I’ve used but it keeps me hydrated all night. I also use it in the morning sometimes id I’ve been lazy with my night routine and my skin is too dry.
02. Nail Polish : Sally Hansen : Pacific Blue
I picked up two Sally Hansen polishes a month a go (other one being...
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a wishlist! A great falicy of the human mind is want, well… wanting even more in my case! Here’s the July wishlist!
1. Illamasqua : Hydra Veil : Rehydrating Gel
I’ve heard to much about this! It works well as a moisturizer and a primer. I really want to try it, it’s something different!
2. Jouer : Mineral Blush : Blossom
I’ve read/seen really great reviews about this product. The colour Blossom and Peach Bouquet are ones I have my eye on.
3. Ciate : Nail Polish : Jewel
Other than the cream polishes from Ciate, Jewel is one of the more ‘razzle dazzle’ ones I like!
This past month I’ve tried a lot of new products and some of them are mentioned here while others are trusted favourites that I use everyday. Hope you are all having a good month! This is a bit late but well overdue since I didn’t post May favourites.
My favourites for June :
01. Shampoo : Brocato : Hydrating Shampoo
I was using this when I was travelling and it works really well. It’s not too strong and I like the smell as well.
02. Conditioner : Brocato : Hydrating Conditioner
This is in an emulsion paste kinda form and also works just as well.
03. Eye Cream : Estee Lauder : Advanced Repair Night Cream
This isn’t something I use...
You might have heard whispers and praises about Mac Peaches and this post will contribute to that!
I discovered this blush very late and since then it’s been a very valued purchase for me. Mac’s blushes come in different finishes like Matte, Sheertone, Sheertone Shimmer etc. Peaches is a true peach matte blush.
There is no other way to describe the colour, it’s a good yellow toned peach. It’s also very pigmented. You could get a subtle sheer finish with this or build it up for a more intense look. I love wearing my blushes subtle and Peaches is no exception.
This looks beautiful on lighter skin tones and I was worried it might look a bit ashy on mine but it’s...
