Spring 2014 RTW : Chloé, John Galliano and Givenchy

Spring 2014 RTW : Chloé, John Galliano and Givenchy

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Chloé, John Galliano and Givenchy   Chloé The show had a very earthly vibe with the colours and the simple plain silhouettes. But it was desert chic in a way which I quite liked.     John Galliano I love the colour palette in this collection. The perforated designs and floral cut outs give a very sleek and feminine look. But the gowns are really...

Wishlist : August 2013

It’s that time of the month when I tempt you (and mostly myself) to break the bank and spoil ourselves! Crap, I also realised I forgot to change the ‘July Wishlist’ to ‘August Wishlist’. I hope you’ll excuse that! This is what happens when I try to blog on a Sunday morning without my tea.           1. Josie Maran : Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee : Poppy Paradise I read loads about these but my inner child just wants to rub jelly on my cheeks and feel pretty. That’s pretty much why I want this. Feel free to mock me.   2. Cirare : Mid Summer Night : Grande Clutch I came across this when I saw someones tweet and my gosh,...

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! Ahem… and the categories are…. Blush Nars Douceur – Review Bronzer Clarins Mosaique Bronzer – Review Concealer MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer in NW35 –...

Givenchy Phenomen’ Eyes Waterproof Mascara in Water Black

Givenchy Phenomen’ Eyes Waterproof Mascara in Water Black

I contemplated a lot about this purchase. It’s way too much for a mascara, ridiculous price. But I had heard so many good things about it. Then I saw a photo of the wand it comes with and I was sold. It’s perfect for my lower lashes and the inner corner upper ones. Givenchy’s Phenomen’ Eyes comes with a waterproof range and one that’s not. Over here I’m reviewing the waterproof one. I’m almost out of it and I thought I’d review it soon before it dries up. The colour water black is the only black one available. I get confused when mascaras sell 3-4 different shades of black. Honestly, who can really tell? Anyway, the formula is quite good. It...

Fall 2012 Couture : Givenchy

Fall 2012 Couture : Givenchy

Givenchy’s collection is the most intriguing couture collection so far. There is so much detailing and braiding in each pieces. But I love the silhouette’s. It’s absolutely gorgeous. I love the red and black kaftan which looks like an ethnic tribal print from afar but it’s so dense in details. This is a collection many can draw inspiration from.

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Shine in Poetique Camelia

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Shine in Poetique Camelia

It seems ages since I did a make up review. And I have many more lined up or July. Givenchy’s Rouge Interdit Shine is its range of sheer lipsticks. I think most of these have shimmer in them. This was gifted a long time ago so I’m not sure if this particular shade is still available or if it was part of any collection. I have it in the shade (23) Poetique Camelia which is a baby pink shade with gold and silver microshimmer. I wouldn’t say this is a true pink because it is slightly peachy. It definitely has warm undertones. The lipstick is sheer and gives a frosty but glossy finish. I feel it does enhance lines on the lips at times but that does generally happen with...

Fall 2012 RTW : Givenchy

Posted on Mar 10, 2012 in Fall, Fashion

Fall 2012 RTW : Givenchy

Givenchy this season is quite dark. The make up is so severe, I had to look away! But this collection has blazers and jackets in great cuts retaining peplums and a sharp look. I liked the red and black lace and silk attires. They had a clash of tough and soft in it. The quilted black leather pants with that soft and flowy kimono blouse reflected that exact sentiment; as did the satin dresses with the thick belt. But the last few pieces of the collection is what I thought was the best work. The red sheer kimono sleeve dress paired with boots was very chic. This collection didn’t blow my mind away but it had a few showstoppers. Fall 2012 RTW Givenchy   Image Credit :...
