The Peach Lip Edit

The Peach Lip Edit

So a while back, last winter, I had my sheer red lipstick phase. That's done with now. Time for peach! This is a tricky colour because if it's too light it doesn't look good on me, if it's too pink it ends up looking too coral. The best way that I've found for me to pull off peach is when it's sheer! For more opaque shades though, using a lip liner makes it more wearable. Here are my picks for peach lipsticks (and one lip gloss) that I've been loving this summer!   Time…Read more
Makeup Collection // Highlighters

Makeup Collection // Highlighters

Hi there! It's been very grey and stormy this week, I'm hoping this will cheer you (and me) up on this dreary Thursday. Let's talk all about highlighters! Before we get into the collection, a bit of nostalgia. My very first one was Nars Orgasm, back when it came in a tube. I quickly realized just how much it can change your look with just a tiny bit, I was hooked. It was pink and gold, I used it everyday with all combinations of blushes. I was obsessed! Naturally, since then, the obsession has grown. L-R…Read more

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.

May 2015 Favourites

Happy Monday! I thought I'd present what I've been loving lately, there's a mix of old and new products this time round. I generally don't have too many new favourites month to month. But every 2-3 months I have a lot more new products to share without it getting too repetitive.     01. Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Body Lotion :: As much as I like The Body Shop it can get boring to use them at a stretch. I was quite happy to find this at Sephora. I had used…Read more

My Skincare Routine | Face Masks & Extras

Hi guys! Now that we're done with the entire AM & PM routine, here are few of the extra bits I like to use. My face mask routine as such as quite methodical. On Wednesdays, right on the middle of the week it's time for a deep cleansing mask followed by a hydrating one. On Saturdays, my exfoliating mask and I have some time together. I don't always follow up with a hydrating mask. It depends, whether I'm going out later or not.   Exfoliating Mask : Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant : Review…Read more

My Skincare Routine | PM

Welcome to part two of my skincare routine, all about night time! Introduction about my skin type and morning skincare routine are all in this post. My pre-blogging self would be scoffing at this routine. From foam cleanser + Nivea + Vaseline, this is what it's come to! The first part of my night time routine is basically cleansing and toning. I very much prefer using cleansing oils and balms/milk/cream variants. Another addition that I previously did not use is an exfoliating toner. It's really helped with keeping the PH of my skin more acidic. I…Read more

My Skincare Routine | AM

Welcome to the three part series on my skincare routine! The last one I did was in 2013. I wanted to do one last year but I was never quite happy with my overall routine. Part Two is up here! I guess I should start off with explaining about my skin type! Skip ahead if you've heard this a million times already. I basically have dry skin, more so in winters. It's normal during the monsoons when it's humid. I don't really get oily but if it's a really hot summer day I…Read more
Just Swatches : Nars Blushes

Just Swatches : Nars Blushes

Hello there! I haven't done one of these in a while. I don't see myself buying anymore Nars blushes, I thought it would be a good time to do a collective post on them. I present to you, my Nars blush collection which is very dear to me! I was very new into makeup when I found myself attracted to Nars blushes, Douceur being the first one I picked out. I wasn't wearing blush regularly at the time and it's the first blush that made me get into the habit of applying blush…Read more
