Summer Haul

Summer Haul

Spanning 90 days and multiple cities, here's what I spent most of my money on this summer. I have used a few of these already so expect mostly raves! Highlight of the post is that I finally caved and bought Tom Ford!! I'm so pleased!! I feel complete. Kat Von D  Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in BauHau5 :: from Sephora (US) :: Intriguing shade name here! Here's how this started. Before KVD the only liquid lipstick that was transfer and kiss proof was the LimeCrime one. I refuse to buy LimeCrime and so my hunt began. For the…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
Lakme Absolute Lip Tint in Candy Kiss

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint in Candy Kiss

Hello there! I can barely bring myself to do anything this Sunday and I have a million things on my list. Going to start ticking them off now, starting with blog stuff. :) Also thank you for the birthday wishes and your input on skincare. I'm not making any drastic changes to my routine but I guess I'm just going to be more observant about the changes. That involves a lot of time staring at myself in the mirror which won't be too hard. ;) I had previously reviewed the shade Orange Tease from…Read more
Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease

I'm feeling particularly lethargic this weekend. I'm hoping some more Diwali food is going to cure that! Meanwhile, here's something from my lipstick stash, Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate lip crayons. The fact that I feel like I'm applying markers to myself is enough to make me giddy. Tease from the Lacquer Balm range is a burnt orange kind of shade with zero shimmer. The orange is a bit deeper which, I feel,  makes it easier to wear. I have comparison swatches below but as you can…Read more
Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel

It's one of my favorite lip products of 2014. Ever since I've got it, it's always been either in my bag or on my little vanity. On to the review! Clinique's Chubby Sticks are what first started the rage of lip crayons. With people complaining about the lack of pigmentation, Clinique came out with the Chubby Stick Intense range which were creamier and more pigmented than the previous offerings. Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel is one of the few nudes in the range. It's a light nude pink; I like that leans…Read more

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic

Two things you need to know about this product - 1. It's (almost) a dupe for Mac Impassioned and b. It pretty fabulous! Time to move on to details! Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm released many moons ago in UK and US. They finally heard our cries in India and put us out of our misery. They come in 8 shades and today I'll be reviewing Unapologetic, a shade which you must swatch or try once even if you aren't buying it! Unapologetic is a bright neon pink. It's a very warm toned pink…Read more
April 2014 Favourites

April 2014 Favourites

It's time for the monthly favourites! This is a bit of March and April combined! As you can see there are quite a few nail polishes. I think I just forget to include nail polishes quite often in these. When I do remember, I tend to include a lot of them. Also if you're interested, I did a Top 10 Spring Nail Polishes post a while back. Here we go!   01. Nail Polish : Colorbar : Apple Martini It's a gorgeous green shade and I love wearing this on my toes.  …Read more
Clinique Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry

Clinique Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry

Today I'm reviewing yet another lip crayon! The Clinique Chubby Sticks are perhaps what hit the scene first before the rest joined the bandwagon! I'll review the Chubby Stick and also do a bit of a comparison with the Revlon and Lakme ones that I've used so far. The Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in the colour Chunky Cherry is a bright pinky red. It's still a very warm colour but it has a tint of pink in it. These balms are very sheer but the colour is definitely buildable. It's…Read more
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten

I'm back with another Kissable Balm Stain review! I reviewed it in the shade Honey a few days back and I like this one just as much! Today's review is the shade Smitten and umm... I was say the clique... I am smitten with it.  It's one of the more pigmented shades in the range. It looks like a really dark plum in the tube but it's a bright plum pink. It's definitely cool toned and looks way brighter than the usual plums. What I like about the shade is that it isn't…Read more
