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
Faces Eye Pencil in Teal

Faces Eye Pencil in Teal

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…Read more

Faces Cordovan Nail Polish

Faces Cordovan is a gorgeous nail polish. I had been looking for a brownish red colour for a long time. I popped into the Faces store two months back and when I saw this, we just clicked!

You do need 2 coats to get the application even and opaque,…Read more

This month I went back to some products I had neglected but needed to use up and som new ones too. I am IN LOVE with the Laura Mercier Mineral Foundation.

Faces Shimmer Peach Nail Polish

This is the first nail polish I bought and I'm so thrilled with it! Peach Shimmer is a very unique shade that isn't too orange or too pale. It's a sheer polish with lots of silver shimmer. It's universally flattering whether you use it over another polish, or by itself. The consistency isn't too thick or creamy. It's more like a peach tinted topcoat with shimmer that dries super fast. It applies very smoothly, no streakiness at all. In the photos I've applied 2 coats, 3 on some. I didn't want it to be…Read more
