Best Of Makeup 2013

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!   Bases Laura Mercier Mineral Powder in Honey | Mac Face and Body Foundation…Read more
Clarins Hydraquench Cream

Clarins Hydraquench Cream

I've always wanted to try Clarins skincare but it's just so damn expensive! Luckily, I was given this because a family member didn't want to use it (omg what? why?) but in any case, good news for me! The Clarins HydraQuench range in general is for hydration and moisturizing. There are a couple of different types available and also one including SPF 15. This one is the HydraQuench Cream meant for normal to dry skin. Texture wise it's a very rich and soft cream. It's easy to apply, bleands well and wbsorbs quickly…Read more
Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rosewood Shimmer (6)

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rosewood Shimmer (6)

The very first lip gloss I bought was from Clarins, it was a lovely nude colour, a much opaque version of this one. Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector (seriously, what's with the absurdly long name) is a sheer lip gloss. These are meant to be very hydrating and give a wash of colour to give a natural but enhanced look. This comes in six shades, all of them are very sheer. Rosewood Shimmer is one of the two nudes in the range and probably the more pigmented one at that. I really…Read more

Best of Makeup 2012-2013

It's been a brilliant year for me. I started working, missed my student days dearly but decided to bring the fun at my workplace to compensate for that! ;) Starting this blog was a decision I was terrified of but I'm happy I took the leap. It's something I do because it makes me happy and it's very fulfilling. Throughout the year I made it a point to review the best and favourites more often. Hence you will find reviews here as well! So here are the best of make up in 2012!…Read more
Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm in 13

Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm in 13

Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm is an amazing lip gloss. It just looks so even and pretty.The formula is really good. This particular gloss is old. Since then, it's been repackaged. You can see it in the shade Strawberry Sorbet if you're looking for the more recent one. There's no name on the packaging, just 13. But the shade is so lovely. It's a dusty muted pink (my kinda pink). You can say its Maybelline's My Mahogany in a gloss. It's also the MLBB gloss for me. It goes on smoothly and doesn't…Read more

Clarins Mosaique Bronzer

First, just scroll down and admire the pictures. Then scroll back up and read this! Isn't it just gorgeous?! Clarins came out with it's Mosaique Summer Bronzing Compact last year. It has really pretty packaging and the product is as impressive as it looks. The bronzer does have an orange tone to it but not a strong one. It shows up really well on my skin which is NC35-40. But for lighter skin tones I would recommend using it with a light hand. The finish is great and it's easy to blend. It's…Read more

Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet

You must excuse my lack on continuity with posts, I haven't been keeping well lately. My very first lip gloss was from Clarins. That was almost 4-5 years ago. I've recently rediscovered my love for the brand. The products are well packaged, good durability and the quality is suberb! The same goes for their skincare line. Today, I'll be reviewing the Colour Quench Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet. These glosses are sheer, with microshimmer and a corresponding fragrance as well. Mine tastes like strawberries and its so yummy! In the tube it appears…Read more
