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
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
Mac Proenza Schouler Ocean City Blush Ombre

Mac Proenza Schouler Ocean City Blush Ombre

I realize it's not really helpful to review a limited edition blush that isn't available anymore but maybe we can just appreciate the beautiful ombre instead. :) I generally don't go for any of the Mac Limited Edition products. This was actually my first one and a few months later I bought a lip gloss from The Simpsons collection. I'm gonna take a break from Mac now. I remember Mac came about with a similar ombre blush which I didn't get and then Estee Lauder had one, which again I decided not to buy.…Read more
Mac Girl About Town Lipstick

Mac Girl About Town Lipstick

Hello there! I'm having a great start to the week, which doesn't happen very often! I'm actually moving to a new place in a month so I've been spending a lot of time looking at faucets, wall colours and door knobs. It's fun and frustrating at the same time! I'm the point where I just want everything to be done magically and finally move in! Today's lipstick is a firm favourite. I wanted it for years and bought it last year (thankfully before the price increase), it's Mac Girl About Town. Does this lipstick…Read more
October 2014 Favourites

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
Mac Frankly Scarlet Blush

Mac Frankly Scarlet Blush

The weekend is finally here! Hope you all had a good week! Today, I'm reviewing a much loved but sparingly used blush. Mac Frankly Scarlet is probably the scariest blush you'll encounter.  Another blush in this category is Nars Exhibit A but Frankly Scarlet with it's pinky red tone is very unique! You've probably noticed how bright it is. Mac Frankly Scarlet is a powder blush with a matte finish. It's also very pigmented and needs to be used with care to avoid clown cheeks. What I really like is the colour which is very…Read more
Mac ‘The Simpsons’ Lipglass in Red Blazer

Mac ‘The Simpsons’ Lipglass in Red Blazer

So excited for this post!! As you might have guessed, I picked up a little something from the limited edition Mac x The Simpsons collection! The minute I heard about the collection a few months ago, I knew I had to get it. When the collection actually came out, I was disappointed with the range. No lipsticks, just 4 glosses, 2 blushes, 2 eyeshadows and nail stickers. I was hoping it would be massive and diverse. Anyway, my initial greed had me adding 2 lipglosses, a blush and an eyeshadow palette to the…Read more
Mac See Sheer Lipstick

Mac See Sheer Lipstick

Everyone loves their Mac's and this particular lipstick is very dear to me. You see, I was venturing out from my nude colour lipstick phase and having bought Plumful, I quite liked sheer lipsticks.  I wanted a coral lipstick but I always felt they looked a bit weird on me. Mac See Sheer is a Lustre finish lipstick. The colour is a medium tone coral pink. I feel like it looks more orange in the tube than on the lips. It's definitely a very wearable coral since the colour is a it darker than…Read more
Mac Mocha Lipstick

Mac Mocha Lipstick

I'm still reeling from the end of that amazing long weekend. The chase for friday begins! Anyway, back to the review. Mac Mocha has always been one of those lipsticks which I've always wanted but never felt like I needed it. One fine day I was feeling a bit extra spendy and I decided to get it. I'm been loving it since! Mac Mocha is from the Satin finish range of lipsticks. The colour is like a peachy brown. It's very much so suitable for olive/Indian skintones and a very nice warm neutral…Read more
