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 in C4 | Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach   Blushes  Mac Plum Foolery | Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed | Mac Peaches   Eyeshadows Stila Merry & Bright Palette | Mac Quad | Inglot...

Jordana Easyliner For Eyes in Denim Blue

Posted on Dec 22, 2013 in Beauty, Eyes, Make Up

Jordana Easyliner For Eyes in Denim Blue

I’ve never really used anything from Jordana and I was gifted this eye pencil. Always a good way to try a new brand! I feel like Jordana is pretty similar to Milani but a bit cheaper. A lot of their products look the same this one is very similar overall to the Milani Easyliners. Ofcourse, the only difference is that this one is only $1.99! Jordana Easyliner For Eyes in Denim Blue is a dark blue colour. It has a black base and is unlike many other dark blues which are navy and have a green base. I’d also describe it as a sapphire blue. But they do have 3 or 4 more blues in this range if you prefer others! It’s very creamy and applies with ease, glides smoothly over the...

Elle 18 Color Pop Liner in Green

Elle 18 Color Pop Liner in Green

I’m going to start this by telling you a really embarrassing tale about nail polish and liquid eyeliners. So I was about 10 or 11 when I bought my first nail polish. It was Elle 18 and they had some collection with shimmery lilacs and blues. Ofcourse, I went nuts when I saw these. But I also wanted a black nail polish. The emo kid in me was dying to come out! So I barged into a local stationary “we sell everything” kind of shop, pranced to the makeup section, picked up a black looking bottle and pranced my way back home feeling mighty proud of myself. It was the first time I had bought something “on my own”. When I came home, I discovered, it was a black...

Milani Easyliner For Eyes Glitter Eyeliner in Purple Quartz

Milani Easyliner For Eyes Glitter Eyeliner in Purple Quartz

TGIF! I’m so looking forward to this weekend to just chill and unwind! I planning interiors for my new room and I’m getting lost with all the choices! This is an old purchase, so I’m glad the shelf life is 36 months! Milani makes amazing liners for a great price and I bought the Easyliner Glitter Eyeliner in Purple Quartz. The colour is purple with silver glitter. There’s the chunkier silver glitter which can be spotted easily and also the subtle fuchsia/violet shimmer in it as well. The colour is really pretty and bright. It’s nice to wear it on it’s own to give a pop of colour. The pigmentation is good but not the best I’ve seen. You need to go...

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal

Posted on Oct 12, 2013 in Beauty, Eyes, Make Up

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal

Maybelline relaunched the Colossal Kajal a while back. I’m not sure if the formula is entirely new but they claim that it lasts 12+ hours, is smudge proof and water proof! Let’s see about that! I had actually never used the Colossal Kajal before. I know, shocking! I always had Lakme, some other Maybelline one but once I found perfection in my Mac Technakohl Liner, I didn’t really look for any others. The Colossal Kajal is very soft and creamy to apply. You kinda have to be careful to not break it while applying! The colour is a very intense black and overall I’m happy with the consistency. Being a kohl, it is safe to use on the waterline which I also liked. This does...

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Taupe

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Taupe

Hey guys! It’s been the end of a very hectic week and I’m happy to just ‘do nothing‘ this weekend! Speaking of being lazy, I like eyeliners that are just no fuss! Easy to apply, easy to remove, no stinging problems and very very soft. Rimmel’s Scandal Eyes ticks all those boxes! I guess the hype was that these are the cheaper Urban Decay 24×7 liners which is how I heard about them. That is somewhat right though! I wasn’t sure if this was available in India at the time, so I bought this from Asos. It’s the Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal (why the long names? ) in the shade Taupe. I think it’s a bit more brown but still in the taupe...

July 2013 Favourites

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...

Stila Glitter Liner in Sea Green

Posted on Jul 6, 2013 in Beauty, Eyes, Make Up

Stila Glitter Liner in Sea Green

Glitter Liners are one product that I rarely use but everytime I see a good one, I need to have it. Perhaps it’s the inner child in me who has outgrown sparkles! I bought Stila’s glitter eye liner in sea green a long time ago and I love this colour. Mainly because it’s sort of duochrome with aqua and turquoise mixed together with a clear base. The glitter varies from green, blues to purples and looks amazing. But the problem is that it isn’t very dense and you need to apply atleast 3-4 times over the same area to get a dense even look. Apart from that, it doesn’t smudge or fall out and spread. It stays on well for 4-5 hours. If you love experimenting with...

Quick Tutorial : Olive and Gold Eye Look

Quick Tutorial : Olive and Gold Eye Look

Hey, I was going to do a full tutorial like I usually do, but my camera ran out of battery and I was too lazy… oops… So I thought I’d so a quick review. It’s a really simple look, but I’ve used colours I don’t wear often. I was experimenting! Olive and gold is a combination that looks gorgeous against deeper skintones. I was quite in the mood for a dramatic look! I usually don’t use so much of liner. Hope you like it!   What to Use 1. A neutral olive green shadow. I used Mac Swimming. Yes, I know it isn’t olive green, but I made it work. 2. A bright gold eye shadow like Mac Amber Lights. 3. A dark green eye shadow like Inglot 414. I...

Chambor Stay-On Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Forever Blue

Posted on May 5, 2013 in Beauty, Eyes, Make Up

Chambor Stay-On Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Forever Blue

Chambor’s Stay-On Waterproof Eyeliner was one I received from a Blisscovered Box  a very long time ago. It’s one of my favourite navy eyeliners! It’s your average pencil eyeliner. The pigmentation is good but you don’t get the complete deal with one stroke, you do need to build it up a bit. I didn’t find this to be the softest eyeliner I’ve used but it is still smooth and you can put it on with relative ease without needing to tug or pull. I however, didn’t find it as smooth to glide on as some of the others I’ve used. The colour is a true navy blue and really lovely. It gives a nice change of colour without being too in your face. It looks...

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Lionfish

I’ve had a big life change in the past week and I’m quite excited about it! I’m a bit sad for the people for I will but I’ve had incredible times with them and I’m anxious for the future. Now that that’s off my chest, let’s talk about the eye liner at hand! Stila’s Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner is one of the best eyeliners I’ve had. It’s incredibly soft and of really good quality and pigmentation. The colour Lionfish is a metallic medium brown which has a touch of bronze. The gold microshimmer is very fine and doesn’t feel rough at all. It’s all nicely packed and there is absolutely no fall out. The colour is...

Maybelline Hyper Glossy Runway Pop Liquid Liner in Tangerine Orange

Hello folks! I’ve been sick for almost an entire week and a real busy time at work and as a result neglected my blog quite a bit this month. but my schedule’s clearing up and I feel well rested and charged! So a few weeks back I got the Maybelline Hyper Glossy Runway Pop Liquid Liner from the PR company. (That is seriously one heck of a long name). It’s a ranged coloured liquid liners and I’ll be reviewing the one in the shade Tangerine Orange! I don’t own anything this bright, it puts all the bright orange lipsticks to shame! It’s a gorgeous true orange colour. It’s more yellow then orange and shows up real nice on the skin. The handle is very...

Milani Easyliner Mechanical Glitter Eye Liner in Precious Silver

Milani Easyliner Mechanical Glitter Eye Liner in Precious Silver

Glitter time! A silver liner is something you might seldom use but is a must in your collection! It’s also handy to use one on your inner corner to highlight! This is a really good pencil for those silver smokey eyes or glittery party looks. Milani’s Easyliner are really really good in quality and I prefer retractable pencils to normal ones. That makes this the perfect choice. This one also comes with an erasing sponge on the other side which is very useful. It can also be used for smudging. The pencils are incredibly smooth to apply. Not a lot of tugging required. The size is excellent for precision as well. It’s very pigmented and the fallout is minimal with this one....
