Goa Beauty Essentials

Goa Beauty Essentials

It's time for my annual pilgrimage to Goa. Four days of sun, sand, cheap booze and even cheaper petrol! The weather right now is as pleasant as it can get, it's going to be perfect! Every year we go to a different beach and this time we'll be exploring Morjim and Ashwem. Let me know your favourite Goa haunts! I'm excited! This time I thought I'd put up an 'Essentials' post, also a good excuse to discuss travel minis. I pretty much carry a similar amount of things when I travel there (or anywhere else).…Read more
Cheeky Birthday Haul!

Cheeky Birthday Haul!

Hello everybody! I treated myself to a bunch of things as it was my birthday. A couple of these I bought from Nordstrom and got it shipped to a friends place, I actually got them in December and I've had some time to play with them. A few Clinique bits were gifts. Nars Audacious Lipstick in Grace : Review : That is one heck of a shade! It's like a coral red with a slight neon-ness to it, very bright! I've only used this is a few times but the formula is great! I…Read more
Best of Makeup 2014!

Best of Makeup 2014!

Hope everyone had lovely holidays! I think half my classmates got married just this weekend. I'm a very passive facebook user, logged in after a long time and the wedding photos were overwhelming! It was lovely though. :) Time to get teary eyed about all my favourites this year now! It took a long time to create this post, mainly because I went through my entire collection to pick things out. Ended up with 30 lipsticks that I narrowed down to around 10. Emotional heart-breaking decisions all over the place! I'm also positive that I've missed out…Read more
Lip Balm Army

Lip Balm Army

Winter dictates that all lip balms in the arsenal are to be released this time of the year. I think that's enough metaphors for one post. :) It doesn't get as cold as New Delhi in my city, but the air is very dry and even people with perfectly normal lips start having problems in winter. Here's what I use to keep my lips soft and nourished at all times.   The Essential You might have heard of Nuxe Reve de Miel plenty times by now. I'll keep it short and sweet. It's hydrating,…Read more
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
Wishlist : December 2014

Wishlist : December 2014

The final wishlist of the year! Seems fitting since it's my birthday in less than a month. I'm allowed a bit of a splurge, right?!   Tom Ford Lip Color in Indian Rose Who wouldn't want this? I'm torn between Indian Rose, Casablanca and a few other shades. Debating which shade I might eventually buy is a nice way to procrastinate from actually buying Tom Ford. I thought about buying from the new limited edition minis collection. But I didn't actually like any of the shades that much. I think I'd rather pay for a…Read more
December 2014 List Love

December 2014 List Love

Hello! I haven't done one of these in a couple of months. If you're new, this is basically where I share beauty and non beauty things I've found while surfing the interwebs. Books 1. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman : A while back I was distraught with my inability to keep up with my "a book a month" strategy. It's amusing and a bit sad that I found this book recommendation on 9Gag. I know... you're allowed one eye roll. Anyway, it's the kind of book you'll love to read if…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
Guide to Berry Lips

Guide to Berry Lips

If you are uncomfortable around an excessive amount of lipsticks, please retreat! This post is only for the brave! I'm hoping, that this post will help you pick out or discover colours you'd like for your fall/autumn/winter looks. Now I don't strictly follow seasonal trends but overall, I thought this post would be helpful to discover berry toned lipsticks (and other lip products). We're gonna work in three parts here.   Part One : Just Give Me Lipsticks To Look At Umm... ok. Here you go.     Part Two : I Don't…Read more
Just Swatches : Revlon Lip Butters

Just Swatches : Revlon Lip Butters

Welcome to the swatchfest! I think Revlon Lip Butters are the bomb and still very affordable now at Rs. 600, as 800 is almost the norm for new lipsticks now. They're sheer, very thin in consistency, lightweight on the lips and very very glossy. Of course, not the most longlasting but these are sheer. not going to say more here since you can read the individual reviews if you are interested in a particular shade. My favourites are Pink Truffle, Raspberry Pie and Juicy Papaya! I think Cotton Candy was a very unnecessary purchase…Read more
