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...
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...
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 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...
Time to spill your holy grails, products you can’t live without or just something new you tried this month! I was a bit adventurous with my eye makeup this month with bright purples.
My September 2013 Favourites -
Clockwise from Left : Inglot 439 Pearl, Inglot 415 Pearl, Mac Woodwinked, Mac Expensive Pink
01. Moisturizer : First Aid Beauty : Ultra Repair Cream
I love the scent of this cream and it’s very soft and effective. If you like Soap & Glory scents, you’ll like this too.
02. Body Mist : Nyassa : Passion Burst Body Mist
I mentioned this in my last favourites as well. I love using this in the second half of the day to feel...
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...
This past month I’ve tried a lot of new products and some of them are mentioned here while others are trusted favourites that I use everyday. Hope you are all having a good month! This is a bit late but well overdue since I didn’t post May favourites.
My favourites for June :
01. Shampoo : Brocato : Hydrating Shampoo
I was using this when I was travelling and it works really well. It’s not too strong and I like the smell as well.
02. 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...
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...
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.
So today, I’m reviewing something I haven’t really featured on my blog before, lip creams. They are like a mash between a lip gloss and lipstick where they are opaque and thick but give a glossy finish. I never intended on purchasing this, I got it free with a StrawberryNet haul. Don’t you just love the free gifts they give?
Stila Lip Enamel Luxe Gloss comes in a lot of shades and I picked Euphoria after seeing some swatches online. It’s a dark berry plum shade which I don’t have and it looked great in the reviews.
The consistency of this medium thick, it doesn’t feel gloopy, just a bit more weighty than normal gloss. The application of this is great....
“Ever since its 2012 launch, Rouge In Love has become the cult lipstick of every colour addict. Synonymous with femininity, freshness and resolute modernity, this ode to colour extends an invitation to express oneself. A statement of pure joie de vivre… Its unique pigmented formula coupled with exceptional hold makes it a must-have for lips.
Rouge In Love, Vernis In Love… Today, the In Love universe is enriched with a brand new generation of gloss. A genius of shine and comfort housed in a case that opens with a click: Gloss In Love.
Fuchsia, pink and orange: the shades combine together to form countless glistening looks. Enjoy total freedom to experiment with the...
This is a post about how excitement induced by the sight of glitter, can overcome logic and reason. You’ll have to see the photos to know what I mean.
I first came across the Superglass collection on Temptalia’s site. And it was like love at first sight. I remembered seeing these on StrawberryNet and so I lurched for them! It was on discount, I took it as a sign from the universe and bought it promptly in the shades Fab Frenzy and Totally Bang!
Now that the story’s ended, let me rave about this lip gloss a little more.
This is not the best lip gloss in terms of consistency and there are some parts of the finish that I do not like. But, I haven’t come across...
This is a really casual chic outfit I love wearing if I’ve heading out for a movie or a casual date. It’s simple and light for summers.

Necklace : Fab Alley | Bracelets : Fab Alley and Westside
Lips : Mac Super Glass Totally Bang | Nails : Illamasqua Phallic | Toes : Zoya Alegra
1. Monochrome can at times feel too simple. Add more depth by using pieces with different textures throughout the outfit.
2. Adding a little bit of colour with accessories does help! I chose the floral clutch as an ode to...
Hey guys! I had picked up this lip gloss a few months ago. Revlon’s Colorburst Lip Gloss range is the best even it comes to quality and value for money. I also have the shades Papaya and Rose Gold. Sunset Peach also lives up to the hype!
Sunset Peach in the tube is a light peach with gold and silver shimmer. It’s definitely a sheer lip gloss, not as pigmented as others in the range. It doesn’t transfer too much colour on the lips. For very pigmented lips, unless you just want that light glossy effect, this won’t really impart much colour. Hence this is best used layered over a lipstick if you want to add more shimmer or warm up the colour.
I love using this over nude...
I’m back with a wishlist after two months now. There just wasn’t anything significant I wanted in the last two months. Plus, I was trying to curb the temptation to shop. Best to cease with the wishlists then!
01. Brian Atwood : Aida : Multicolour suede pump
Way to start off the new year with a purely wishful product! Ridiculously expensive? Yes. Will I ever buy it? Probably not. But it’s so freaking gorgeous. I love the colours and the shape.
02. Diptyque : Candle : Baines
I’ve been wanting these for so long and I finally found a store in India that sells them, MoonRiver. Will I buy it? I hope they have a discount soon. The current price...
