I’m going to start this by telling you a really embarrassing tale about nail polish and liquid eyeliners. So I was about 10 or 11 when I bought my first nail polish. It was Elle 18 and they had some collection with shimmery lilacs and blues. Ofcourse, I went nuts when I saw these. But I also wanted a black nail polish. The emo kid in me was dying to come out!
So I barged into a local stationary “we sell everything” kind of shop, pranced to the makeup section, picked up a black looking bottle and pranced my way back home feeling mighty proud of myself. It was the first time I had bought something “on my own”. When I came home, I discovered, it was a black...
Glitter Liners are one product that I rarely use but everytime I see a good one, I need to have it. Perhaps it’s the inner child in me who has outgrown sparkles!
I bought Stila’s glitter eye liner in sea green a long time ago and I love this colour. Mainly because it’s sort of duochrome with aqua and turquoise mixed together with a clear base. The glitter varies from green, blues to purples and looks amazing.
But the problem is that it isn’t very dense and you need to apply atleast 3-4 times over the same area to get a dense even look. Apart from that, it doesn’t smudge or fall out and spread.
It stays on well for 4-5 hours. If you love experimenting with...
Hello folks! I’ve been sick for almost an entire week and a real busy time at work and as a result neglected my blog quite a bit this month. but my schedule’s clearing up and I feel well rested and charged!
So a few weeks back I got the Maybelline Hyper Glossy Runway Pop Liquid Liner from the PR company. (That is seriously one heck of a long name).
It’s a ranged coloured liquid liners and I’ll be reviewing the one in the shade Tangerine Orange!
I don’t own anything this bright, it puts all the bright orange lipsticks to shame! It’s a gorgeous true orange colour. It’s more yellow then orange and shows up real nice on the skin.
The handle is very...
Hello folks! I thought I’d post a simple eye tutorial. I’m doing a gold bronze look. This can be played down or made more dramatic depending on the occassion or what you are comfortable with.

The heat is killing me! I wish the monsoons were here already! Everytime I see a speck of a grey cloud, I get my hopes up…
I don’t use glitter liners too often but I always pair them with a base since they don’t tend to be very pigmented either. Stila’s Silver Lilac is such a gorgeous shade with a unique mix of lilac, blue and silver glitter. The glitter itself isn’t very coarse and doesn’t feel heavy when applied on the lid. The concentration isn’t dense when applied sparingly. You do need to go over it twice to make it prominent.
It glides very easily and then stays put for hours. I had worn this for over 6 hours and there was no fall out or...

I generally find that Benefit is a very overpriced brand with products you can find dupes for. But the liquid liner is a different story (for me). I have a very unsteady hand and using liquid liners scares me. The line becomes crooked, it bleeds, its isn’t too black etc etc. But what I really liked about Benefit’s magic ink liner is that it stayed in place, it lasted long, it looked resonably wet and didn’t dry up into pieces. Along with that, I love the packaging and the long slim handle. It makes a clumsy person like me with applying liquid liners with ease and accuracy.
Magic Ink is jet black in colour. When applied, it feels cool, smooth and not very heavy. I has a...
