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.

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

August 2014 Favourites

August 2014 Favourites

It's that time of the month to share my favourites! I have a few unusual ones here, because I can't really bring myself to fully review a hand wash and a hand sanitizer. Let's get cracking!       01. Eye Cream : Clinique : All About Eyes Rich After my trip in June, my eye area was in serious trouble. It was extremely dry and I thought it might be best to start using an eye cream. Now, this is mainly for hydrating the area. Other concerns like dark circles ( mine…Read more

August 2014 List Love

I haven't done one of these for a long time. For new readers, List Love is basically where I list down notable bloggers, books and in general anything else I'm chuffed about!     Link Love - Books 1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - I was in the mood to read a nice thriller and this was on the Kindle bestseller list. I liked it! The ending was a bit unexpected but overall I liked the mystery! 2. Sir Vidia's Shadow by Paul Theroux  - It's a very different book from what I've read…Read more

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

There's a bit of guilt over this haul but I'm trying to push that aside as I write this! So, last month I went on a trip to Japan and China. I did a bit of shopping at Hong Kong airport and more drugstore shopping in Japan. Shiseido has multiple brands under the umbrella and I really wanted to buy them there. A bit of a note about where I shopped in Japan if you're interested. I was at Fort Venus ( in Odaiba) which was next to my hotel. I discovered they…Read more
