The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

You might have heard a reasonable amount of praise for The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer, here's one more in the crowd. The highlighter is known best for it's universal colour, pigmentation, fine quality, glow sans sparkle and the relatively affordable price! Mary-Lou is a champagne gold colour, it's not too warm though. It translates very well on the skin as a colour that's not too cool or warm. The powder is very very fine and there's no chunky glitter or distinct shimmer, it all looks seamless. Unless you carefully it use very little, this…Read more
Makeup Collection // Highlighters

Makeup Collection // Highlighters

Hi there! It's been very grey and stormy this week, I'm hoping this will cheer you (and me) up on this dreary Thursday. Let's talk all about highlighters! Before we get into the collection, a bit of nostalgia. My very first one was Nars Orgasm, back when it came in a tube. I quickly realized just how much it can change your look with just a tiny bit, I was hooked. It was pink and gold, I used it everyday with all combinations of blushes. I was obsessed! Naturally, since then, the obsession has grown. L-R…Read more
May 2015 Favourites

May 2015 Favourites

Happy Monday! I thought I'd present what I've been loving lately, there's a mix of old and new products this time round. I generally don't have too many new favourites month to month. But every 2-3 months I have a lot more new products to share without it getting too repetitive.     01. Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Body Lotion :: As much as I like The Body Shop it can get boring to use them at a stretch. I was quite happy to find this at Sephora. I had used…Read more
YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey

YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey

When it comes to concealer, I've rarely strayed from the my power duo (Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach and Mac Moisture Select in NW35). Curiosity and hype got the better of me when I purchased this. YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey (5) is a concealer/brightener/highlighter all wrapped up in a pen. I'm going to specifically talk about using this as a concealer. The shade is a little more orange than my skin tone but I figured that would help with colour correction. The other shades were too pink or way off for…Read more
Goa Beauty Essentials

Goa Beauty Essentials

It's time for my annual pilgrimage to Goa. Four days of sun, sand, cheap booze and even cheaper petrol! The weather right now is as pleasant as it can get, it's going to be perfect! Every year we go to a different beach and this time we'll be exploring Morjim and Ashwem. Let me know your favourite Goa haunts! I'm excited! This time I thought I'd put up an 'Essentials' post, also a good excuse to discuss travel minis. I pretty much carry a similar amount of things when I travel there (or anywhere else).…Read more
Cheeky Birthday Haul!

Cheeky Birthday Haul!

Hello everybody! I treated myself to a bunch of things as it was my birthday. A couple of these I bought from Nordstrom and got it shipped to a friends place, I actually got them in December and I've had some time to play with them. A few Clinique bits were gifts. Nars Audacious Lipstick in Grace : Review : That is one heck of a shade! It's like a coral red with a slight neon-ness to it, very bright! I've only used this is a few times but the formula is great! I…Read more
Best of Makeup 2014!

Best of Makeup 2014!

Hope everyone had lovely holidays! I think half my classmates got married just this weekend. I'm a very passive facebook user, logged in after a long time and the wedding photos were overwhelming! It was lovely though. :) Time to get teary eyed about all my favourites this year now! It took a long time to create this post, mainly because I went through my entire collection to pick things out. Ended up with 30 lipsticks that I narrowed down to around 10. Emotional heart-breaking decisions all over the place! I'm also positive that I've missed out…Read more
Mac Cream Color Base in Improper Copper

Mac Cream Color Base in Improper Copper

I was in the market for a cream highlighter a while back. I own the Mac paint pot in Rubenesque and colour wise I thought it would be such a good highlighter. When I came across Improper Copper at the Mac store, I tried it on, it looked so beautiful. The coppery gold highlight is something I don't own, mine are more silver. This was promptly purchased then! Mac's Cream Color Base are multipurpose products. They are sheer and buildable and can be used all over the face and along with other makeup…Read more

Haul : YSL, Burberry, Chanel, Hourglass etc

I've been on a naughty haul! Well, technically, this is a collective haul over the last two months. Some of these are gifts since it was my birthday in Jan. So I have a mix of blushes and went made over lipsticks mainly. I also got a couple of Formula X for Sephora nail polishes but I forgot to take pictures of those. I really love everything I got. I've already used the mascara and the YSL lipstick in Ultimate Beige a lot, I love it! Burberry Beauty is something I was looking forward to…Read more
Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Highlighter in Rose Illumination

Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Highlighter in Rose Illumination

There is this notion that Elizabeth Arden is only for oldies. I'd like to challenge that with this gorgeous timeless highlighter! Elizabeth Arden released a limited edition Rose Aurora collection in 2012, which had a few products in this gorgeous rose gold packaging. But you can still buy this highlighter online! Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Highlighter in Rose Illumination is the perfect rose gold highlighter. It's a light peachy pink with gold shimmer running through it when you swatch it heavily. But when you blend it it's more of a warm champagne pink. It's…Read more
