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...
This post is a first of sorts! I love trying new products but there are certain ones I also buy again. I think this post would be a nice way to showcase products that really work for me.
Hope you like it!

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 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...
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...
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...
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...
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’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...
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...
March is been a hot month indeed! And hence the use of more suncare and cooling products. Some of these I now use daily while others used more frequently on special occasions.
Hope you like the favourites! Most of these are available in India if you where to shop. If you need details, please leave a comment!
So let’s begin!
01. Sun Screen : Biotherm : Lait Solaire UVA and UVB Protection Melting Milk SPF 30
I’ve been using this in particularly if I know I’ll be out in the sun for a longer time. It has a soothing citrus scent and works really well.
02. Eye Shadow : Urban Decay : Buck
My everyday eyeshadow! I have a lot of...
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...
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....
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!
Ahem… and the categories are….

It’s my dream to have eye pencils in all colours. It’s not a very practical one because as much as I hate to admit, I rarely use anything other than black or brown. But, 2 months ago, I caved in and bought a “safe” bright colour.
Teal is such a lovely shade. I can almost image a gorgeous earthy bronzey look with teal highlights. I think it’s a great colour to wear when you want a clean “just eyeliner” look. It think it’ll look great on any skin tone! I know navy blue is very in this season but this is a great option for a brighter one.
When it comes to eye pencils in non-staple shades I don’t like spending too much on it. Even the...
