February 2014 Favourites

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 This is very rich cream. I used this and the Clarins one in winter. You need a really tiny bit for this to...

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 mentioned here. I’ve also posted my “Best of 2013” products post if you’re interested. Photos and swatches!     01. Body Butter : Soap...

August 2013 Favourites

I don’t have too many few favourites for the last month. A lot of it is stuff I’ve been using for a while but failed to mention before. August Favourites :     01. Body Mist : Nyassa : Passion Burst Body Mist (not pictured) I got this in a Vellvette box and I’ve been keeping this in my office. I love the grapefruit scent, it’s very refreshing. The tiny bottle also makes it easy to carry on the go!   02. Toner : Avene : Gentle Toner My previous one was very drying, but this one is so gentle and removes any leftover dirt and grime easily.  I’ve really been loving Avene products, completely worth it.   03.

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...

April 2013 Favourites

I have a lot of old favourites this month and a couple of new ones as well. Some of the products are ones I use every week and I somehow always overlooked them for these posts. So let’s get started!             01. Nail Polish : Illamasqua : Phallic Phallic is such a beautiful deep shimmery blue. You could say it’s the perfect midnight blue. I will gush more about this in a another dedicated post, but I was wearing this a lot this month. I really loved the quality as well.   02. Nail Polish : Illamasqua : Viridian I bought this and Phallic at the same time. I’m in love with this as well. It looks amazing on nails. I was pretty much...

October 2012 Favourites

This post is quite late but it’s time for the October favourites! This time it’s a mix of some things I’ve been using for months and by beloved lip butters.     01. Foundation : Dior : Nude in 040 Honey The pump is really messy to work with and the foundation is the perfect if you want sheer coverage.   02. Brush : Sigma : Kabuki bursh Fluffy brush! Very smooth and soft; I use it to set the powder.   03. Lip Gloss : Revlon : Colourburst lip gloss in Sunset This sheer lip gloss looks amazing by itself. It’s got a lot of microshimmer and it just makes your lips look warmer. I love it!   04. Blush : Nars : Douceur It’s my go to...

This comes late on the schedule but these are products I reached out for last month. I’m in love with OPI Parlez Vous. It’s such a beautiful colour!           01. Dry Shampoo : Lush : No Drought It’s getting warmer and hotter and I so need this on second day hair. It smells lovely and I’m really loving the powder application more than sprays.   02. Lipstick : Revlon : Colorburst in Peach It’s a light coral colour. It’s looks great. I wish it was a bit more moisturizing though.   03. Eyeshadow : NYX : Taupe Staple base eye shadow for me. Can’t ever go wrong with this.   04. Eyeshadow : Mac :...

June 2013 Favourites

It’s July already! Sorry for being so behind on posting this. I’ve been trying to stick to my posting schedule but they are all getting delayed. I’m trying to rectify that from the coming week. You might sense a theme here. Everything looks peachy pink or a variation it, doesn’t it? I didn’t realize that until I saw this picture. So anyway, here are my June favourites!       01. Body Lotion : Bath & Body Works : White Citrus I love the smell of this. Very fresh and citrus like. The consistency of these isn’t as thick as the triple moisture ones.   02. Powder : Rimmel : Match Perfection Ultra Creamy Compact Powder : Soft...
