Lorac PRO Palette

Lorac PRO Palette

Yes, I'm finally reviewing this. You've probably heard all praises about this already. Time to hear it all just once more. Let's start with the basics. You get 16 eyeshadows which include 8 mattes and 8 shimmer shades.  Should keep everyone happy! Excellent colour selection which would work on all skintones. Also a good mix of warm and cool toned shades without being too extreme. The consistency is very buttery smooth. It almost feels creamy when you touch them. I find them creamier than the Urban Decay eyeshadows and the L'oreal Infallible ones.…Read more
Best of Makeup 2014!

Best of Makeup 2014!

Hope everyone had lovely holidays! I think half my classmates got married just this weekend. I'm a very passive facebook user, logged in after a long time and the wedding photos were overwhelming! It was lovely though. :) Time to get teary eyed about all my favourites this year now! It took a long time to create this post, mainly because I went through my entire collection to pick things out. Ended up with 30 lipsticks that I narrowed down to around 10. Emotional heart-breaking decisions all over the place! I'm also positive that I've missed out…Read more
Wishlist : December 2014

Wishlist : December 2014

The final wishlist of the year! Seems fitting since it's my birthday in less than a month. I'm allowed a bit of a splurge, right?!   Tom Ford Lip Color in Indian Rose Who wouldn't want this? I'm torn between Indian Rose, Casablanca and a few other shades. Debating which shade I might eventually buy is a nice way to procrastinate from actually buying Tom Ford. I thought about buying from the new limited edition minis collection. But I didn't actually like any of the shades that much. I think I'd rather pay for a…Read more
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

I've had this palette for a good six months now so I thought I'd review it. I was initially very sceptical about how the cool toned colours would look on me but I guess it can work if you balance it out with darker shades. For me, it also depends on the outfit and the kind of jewelry I'm wearing. Gold? Nope, won't be using this. Silver, rose gold? Yes! Anyway, moving on, the palette itself like the other Urban Decay palettes is great quality wise. There are a few shades that aren't…Read more

October 2014 Favourites

Time for the monthly favourites. I've had such a crazy Monday, I just want to talk about makeup! A  bunch of things I've been using for the last 2-3 months and some are more recent favourites. So here goes!   01. Lorac Pro Palette :: So I finally got this a few months back and it's pretty much replaced my UD Naked palette. I love the colours! I've used it for subtle everyday looks, night outs with smokey eyes and shimmery looks. Also used it on Diwali and I have a few weddings…Read more
Inglot 439 Pearl Eyeshadow

Inglot 439 Pearl Eyeshadow

I have a midweek trip to the mall and some damage will be done! feeling guilty even as I'm typing this but there are a bunch of things I've wanted for a long time! Anyway, speaking on nice things, here's one of the best eyeshadows in the market, Inglot 439 Pearl. It's a gorgeous cool toned purple eyeshadow with purple and at times blue micro shimmer. The pearl finish really makes this standout. It's the middle shade in my 5 pan palette. As you'd expect from Inglot, the eyeshadow is very pigmented indeed.…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
L’oreal Color Infaillible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush

L’oreal Color Infaillible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush

L'oreal Color Infaillible Eyeshadows are pretty damn good. I've reviewed the shade Burning Black before. However, this particular shade was only released in the US. It's worth getting your hands on it though! These are a bit like loose pigment quality eyeshadows but in pressed form. It's very tightly packed and so there's no mess! The shade Amber Rush is a cross between a copper and rose gold shade. It's so flattering on all skintones, it's perfect for festive or wedding kind of makeup. I really love how intense it looks on the…Read more
Mac Contrast Eyeshadow

Mac Contrast Eyeshadow

Something about Mac eyeshadows gives you the feeling like you're holding something precious. It's well founded with other eyeshadows like Woodwinked, Expensive Pink etc. But with Contrast, I'm not too sure. From the plethora of finishes and colours, Contrast is a velvet finish eyeshadow. The colour is really something. It's like a dark blue, almost black base with very fine blue pearly microshimmer. I like that the blue is very cool-toned, no hint of navy or green in it. The finish is slightly matte and I like the  matte base with shimmer kind…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
