May 2015 Favourites

Happy Monday! I thought I'd present what I've been loving lately, there's a mix of old and new products this time round. I generally don't have too many new favourites month to month. But every 2-3 months I have a lot more new products to share without it getting too repetitive.     01. Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Body Lotion :: As much as I like The Body Shop it can get boring to use them at a stretch. I was quite happy to find this at Sephora. I had used…Read more
Canmake Cream Cheek in CL01 Clear Red Heart

Canmake Cream Cheek in CL01 Clear Red Heart

One of my biggest discoveries last year was drugstore makeup in Japan. I bought a ton but the Canmake blushes really stood out for me. Canmake Cream Cheek in Clear Red Heart (CL01) is a sheer red cream blush. 'Clear' refers to it's truly translucent nature which makes it adapt to your skin tone and texture really well to give a very natural and seamless look. It has a gel like consistency which looks similar to the Josie Maran Cheek Gelee but it's creamier and softer. You need absolutely the tiniest bit. The pinky red…Read more

Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher in Flush

Hello folks! So glad the weekend is here! One of my closest friends is getting married this weekend and I'm so excited! Major wardrobe and makeup decisions to be made but I think I'll get through it... Just need a quick opinion, how do you feel about a black and gold anarkali for a wedding? Anyway, I'll try to not digress in the course of this review. I have a very peculiar blush in my possession. Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher in Flush. "Watercolour" made my eyes light up when I first saw this.…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 : Review 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…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
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
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
Bourjois Cream Blush in Healthy Glow

Bourjois Cream Blush in Healthy Glow

This is such a cute product! It's the famous little round pot but now it houses a cream blush! Bourjois launched four shades in their Cream Blush range. I'm reviewing the shade 02 Healthy Glow. It's a light peachy apricot colour. It tends to look a little bit more peachy pink on the skin and there's also very subtle gold shimmer running through it. I find that the shimmer is more apparent in heavy swatches but not so much after your blend it. The colour is something that will suit both cool and…Read more

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…Read more

December 2013 Favourites

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…Read more
