L’oreal Shine Caresse Lip Gloss in Lolita

L’oreal Shine Caresse Lip Gloss in Lolita

Hey guys! Here’s a nice nude lip gloss! I got swept up in the hype of this being a YSL Glossy Stain dupe and promptly picked it up from Myntra.com! The L’oreal Shine Caresse Lip Gloss range is more like lip stains with a glossy finish. The shade Lolita is dusty mauvy pink. How this looks on your lips can change a bit because it’s sheer and your lip colour does show through. It looks more cool toned in the tube but it’s a very warm pink which is even better for Indian skintones. For me, it gives a sheer wash of colour and appears as a warm pink, very close MLBB shade. I also detected very subtle gold shimmer but it’s very fine. This particular shade is sheer...

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...

Haul : YSL, Burberry, Chanel, Hourglass etc

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 buying. It’s expensive but it’s actually cheaper than Chanel, Dior or YSL. They have an incredible range and there’s a lot of focus on nudes as well. Anyway, here’s the...

L’oreal Glam Shine Reflexion Lip Gloss in Sheer Framboise

L’oreal Glam Shine Reflexion Lip Gloss in Sheer Framboise

I’ve had this lip gloss for a while now but I don’t think I’ve used it a lot. I’m going through this phase where I’m discovering makeup I bought a while back that I haven’t used often. It’s unsettling, it means I need to stop shopping for quite a while! On that though, I’m thinking of doing a blog sale but I’m just not sure if I should. I personally never buy from blog sales because I don’t like used makeup. It would be ironic right? Going back to the review, here’s L’oreal Glam Shine Reflexion Lip Gloss in the shade Sheer Framboise. The shade is a bright warm pink. Almost like a warm fuchsia with pink and silver...

Wishlist : January 2014

Here’s a late January wishlist! I won’t be buying stuff anymore for atleast the next few months except essentials, so looking at this should calm me down.   01. Warehouse : Top : Knit top with lace front and embellishment I’ve been eyeing this for a long time. It’s available on Koovs. Btw, does anyone keep getting those annoying phone calls from koovs.com the minute you add something in your cart? I feel like I should have bought this during the GOSF sale but on second thought, it’s not something I need.   02. Burberry : Perfume : Body EDP I was also thinking of buying this from Koovs during GOSF more just left my cart empty at the end. I had a...

Best Of Makeup 2013

It’s almost the end of a year!! Not the most eventful one for me compared to others but in general my life was more settled and I was happier! I also loved blogging all year round and all the travelling I did! Sentiments aside, this post is to celebrate the best stuff I liked using this year! There are a couple from last year that I still use but I thought I’d also talk about newer products I liked!   Bases Laura Mercier Mineral Powder in Honey | Mac Face and Body Foundation in C4 | Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach   Blushes  Mac Plum Foolery | Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed | Mac Peaches   Eyeshadows Stila Merry & Bright Palette | Mac Quad | Inglot...

Inglot Sleeks Lip Gloss in 45

Posted on Dec 5, 2013 in Beauty, Lips, Make Up

Inglot Sleeks Lip Gloss in 45

I wanted a try a few more Inglot products because I was super impressed with the eyeshadows. These test tube like Sleeks lip glosses really caught my eye because they had so many colours and shimmers. I picked this bright orange one since I don’t really have a colour like this. Inglot Sleeks Lip Gloss in 45 is  bright orange, slightly muted and packed with gold and orange shimmer. The shimmer is very dense and very much noticeable! I love the colour in the tube, but on me it didn’t translate well. The pigmentation is not great, it’s sheer which would be fine but it’s very difficult to build it up because it applies very uneven. For the most part it looks like a tint...

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rosewood Shimmer (6)

Posted on Dec 2, 2013 in Beauty, Lips, Make Up

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rosewood Shimmer (6)

The very first lip gloss I bought was from Clarins, it was a lovely nude colour, a much opaque version of this one. Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector (seriously, what’s with the absurdly long name) is a sheer lip gloss. These are meant to be very hydrating and give a wash of colour to give a natural but enhanced look. This comes in six shades, all of them are very sheer. Rosewood Shimmer is one of the two nudes in the range and probably the more pigmented one at that. I really really love this colour. It’s a rosy brown shade with very minute shimmer. The shimmer is really very subtle and you can’t tell unless you observe closely. My bare lips tend to go purply at...

October 2013 Favourites

I lot have a lot of different favourites this month, I’m mostly using stuff I’ve already shown before. But these are some everyday or occasion pieces I’ve enjoyed using the past month. Hope you all had a great Diwali! ^_^       01. Moisturiser : Clarins : HydraQuench Cream I love how rich and soft this makes my skin. It’s perfect for winters and will last me all the way. It also smells lovely.   02. Blush : Nars : Deep Throat The less shiny and peachy Orgasm. It gives a subtle pink flush with shimmer. Very soft on the skin.   03. Soap : Khadi : Aloe Vera and Jasmine I’ve never really mentioned soaps on this blog before but I had an...

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Celestial

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Celestial

Rimmel Apocalips is one stellar product! I’m not sure if and when it will launch in India, but I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! Apocalips are basically a lip lacquer or lip cream similar to Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams. Rimmel Apocalips in Celestial is a mauve pink shade. It’s a good neutral for deeper skintones and a good everyday pink for lighter ones. If you liked Maybelline’s Mirrored Mauve, you’ll like this one too. This looks so amazing on the lips, it gives full coverage and  makes them appear smooth and fuller. The consistency is a thick lip cream, it’s glossy but not too much. It doesn’t evenly settle into a matte finish although the...

I love using this in the second half of the day to feel...

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...

Conditioner : Brocato : Hydrating Conditioner This is in an emulsion paste kinda form and also works just as well.   03. Eye Cream : Estee Lauder : Advanced Repair Night Cream This isn’t something I use...

Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Mirrored Mauve

Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Mirrored Mauve

It’s been raining non stop for quite a while. I love rains but it comes with it’s set of problems, crazy hair, that chip chip humid feeling, lethargy and yawns that do not cease!  So I’m stepping out of the gloom and sleep; this post might end up having quite a few typos because I can barely keep my eyes open. I’ve been using Maybelline’s ColorSensational High Shine lip gloss for almost a month now. I was provided the shade 110 Mirrored Mauve. When I first looked at it, I was a bit disappointed and thought it was very dull. But it’s probably the most wearable shaded in the range. It might look a bit dusty and dull in the tube, but it’s a really...

Khuraira Luscious Lips Lip Gloss

Posted on Jun 26, 2013 in Beauty, Lips, Make Up

Khuraira Luscious Lips Lip Gloss

Hey guys, today I’ll be reviewing another lip product, Khuraira Luscious Lips. It’s a lip gloss and unfortunately, I have no idea what shade it is. It doesn’t say so on the packaging or any of the material I received. The colour is a light brownish pink with a lot of silver shimmer. The shimmer is very dense and fine. This lip gloss is more creamy than liquid like. It glides on almost like a film and you can wear it sheer so that you can see your natural lip colour through, or build it up for an opaque look. I think the brown can make you look too mature so I like wearing this sheer. It adds more warmth to the lips and almost a warmer MLBB like shade. This doesn’t...
