The Sheer Red Lipstick Edit

The Sheer Red Lipstick Edit

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I wanted to see The Hobbit but had so much stuff to do so I might catch a late night show this week. I'm kinda sad it's all ending though. So for the last two months, I've really really been loving sheer red lipsticks. I don't know what it is I always go through these phases where I have my usual chunk of nudes and bolds that I wear but on the side I have something else going on (lipstick wise). These are some of the…Read more

October 2014 Favourites

Time for the monthly favourites. I've had such a crazy Monday, I just want to talk about makeup! A  bunch of things I've been using for the last 2-3 months and some are more recent favourites. So here goes!   01. Lorac Pro Palette :: So I finally got this a few months back and it's pretty much replaced my UD Naked palette. I love the colours! I've used it for subtle everyday looks, night outs with smokey eyes and shimmery looks. Also used it on Diwali and I have a few weddings…Read more
Mac ‘The Simpsons’ Lipglass in Red Blazer

Mac ‘The Simpsons’ Lipglass in Red Blazer

So excited for this post!! As you might have guessed, I picked up a little something from the limited edition Mac x The Simpsons collection! The minute I heard about the collection a few months ago, I knew I had to get it. When the collection actually came out, I was disappointed with the range. No lipsticks, just 4 glosses, 2 blushes, 2 eyeshadows and nail stickers. I was hoping it would be massive and diverse. Anyway, my initial greed had me adding 2 lipglosses, a blush and an eyeshadow palette to the…Read more
Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Mystery

Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Mystery

Last week I reviewed the  Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Intrigue and now it's lighter cousin Mystery makes it's way. Mystery is a light nude pink. It's a light warm pink and has a dustiness to it. Similar to Intrigue, the lip gloss is sheer but buildable to medium. I think the shade is a good nude lip gloss for light and medium skintones. Might wash out darker ones. I have a comparison below but most of the nude lip glosses I have are much warmer and have brown in it like L'oreal…Read more

Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Intrigue

A couple months back I was at the Palladium Mall with the Chanel store in front of me. Damage was done and I picked up the Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Intrigue along with another shade called Mystery. Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer are lip glosses that come in a varity. You have sheer, opaque, shimmery, mega shimmery etc. Intrigue is a sheer to medium coverage lip gloss in a brick red or brown red kind of shade with no shimmer. It's much darker in the tube than it is on the lips. I feel like…Read more
Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten

Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten

The monsoons are properly here! That makes me a happy bunny! Today I'll be reviewing Stila's Lip Glaze in the shade Kitten. I got this with the Merry & Bright Palette. The shade Kitten is a cult favourite. Originally in eyeshadow form, it's a warm peach shimmer and really beautiful. In a lip gloss form, it's a great layering shade and also pretty on its own if you don't mind a ton of shimmer. Lip Glaze is basically a lip gloss but these come with a pen like packaging, similar to YSL Touche…Read more
L’oreal Shine Caresse Lip Gloss in Juliette

L’oreal Shine Caresse Lip Gloss in Juliette

The L'oreal Shine Caresee lip glosses are all the rage! I picked up Juliette along with Lolita from Myntra.com a while back. While Lolita is a really good nude, Juliette is a bright tomato red shade. It's a warm red with a tinge of orange that looks really bold. There's no shimmer in it, just a great warm red. These are quite sheer but buildable. You can see in the swatches below, with one swipe the colour looks very uneven. But with 2-3 swipes it's opaque and the lip looks fuller. The colour…Read more

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
Elle 18 Juicy Lip Balm in Juicy Berry

Elle 18 Juicy Lip Balm in Juicy Berry

This review will be short and sweet! Here's a pretty pink lip gloss. Elle 18 Juicy Lip Balm in Juicy Berry. It's a lovely warm pink, very much coral in the tube. It's a very sheer lip gloss. On the lips, the colour changes a bit depending on your pigmentation. This will also work well as a layering gloss over pink and nude lipsticks. It is very lightweight and thus feels comfortable on the lips and not sticky. The consistency is thin and very similar to the Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Gloss. That's…Read more
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.…Read more
