Mac Expensive Pink is another gorgeous eyeshadow which much like All That Glitters, speaks for itself. It has pink, gold and a lovely sheen to it, why will girls not like it?
Expensive Pink is Veluxe Pearl finish, by far my favourite from Mac. It’s a peachy pink with gold shimmer in it. Depending on your lighting it can look more pink or peachy at the time. But it’s the gold sheen that really makes this colour look rich.
This is great to wear on festive occasions, weddings etc. You can use this with bronze, gold, orange or purples for more intense looks. It works incredibly well with a lot of colours.
The quality is really great as well. It’s that buttery smooth kind which...
Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
All That Glitters is that classic Mac eyeshadow that everyone needs to swatch atleast once in person if not buy. It’s a gorgeous beige warm shimmery colour. It almost looks a bit peachy to me. If I had to pair this with a nail polish, it would most definitely be Essie Buy Me A Cameo.
Mac All That Glitters is a Veluxe Pearl eyeshadow, one that Mac describes as a “beige gold pearl”. It’s a colour that suits both undertones and has a very subtle warmth to it. It’s a great colour to use all over the lid with bronze and smokey looks. I also like using this with Woodwinked or Satin Taupe.
It’s a pearl finish...
I lot have a lot of different favourites this month, I’m mostly using stuff I’ve already shown before. But these are some everyday or occasion pieces I’ve enjoyed using the past month. Hope you all had a great Diwali! ^_^
01. Moisturiser : Clarins : HydraQuench Cream
I love how rich and soft this makes my skin. It’s perfect for winters and will last me all the way. It also smells lovely.
02. Blush : Nars : Deep Throat
The less shiny and peachy Orgasm. It gives a subtle pink flush with shimmer. Very soft on the skin.
03. Soap : Khadi : Aloe Vera and Jasmine
I’ve never really mentioned soaps on this blog before but I had an...
This post is a first of sorts! I love trying new products but there are certain ones I also buy again. I think this post would be a nice way to showcase products that really work for me.
Hope you like it!

I wasn’t a very blush person until last year (for wearing everyday I mean). Peachy pinks, corals, plums, I love them all now. This is actually a blush I picked out for my mom and months went by, she still hadn’t used it. She finally surrendered it to me!
Mac Plum Foolery blush is from the Sheertone Shimmer finishes. It’s a sheer blush with fine microshimmer and is absolutely gorgeous. As the name suggests, it’s a plumy rose pink with gold shimmer. It’s the kind of colour that will show up and suit everyone. The sheen especially makes it really gorgeous.
The shimmer is very very fine and it doesn’t spread all over your face. You can build up the colour...
Time to spill your holy grails, products you can’t live without or just something new you tried this month! I was a bit adventurous with my eye makeup this month with bright purples.
My September 2013 Favourites -
Clockwise from Left : Inglot 439 Pearl, Inglot 415 Pearl, Mac Woodwinked, Mac Expensive Pink
01. Moisturizer : First Aid Beauty : Ultra Repair Cream
I love the scent of this cream and it’s very soft and effective. If you like Soap & Glory scents, you’ll like this too.
02. Body Mist : Nyassa : Passion Burst Body Mist
I mentioned this in my last favourites as well. I love using this in the second half of the day to feel...
I’m back with a review of Mac Plumful! This is a colour that somehow slipped my radar and I never really noticed it until, I saw it on Estee from essiebutton.com. Thereafter, I promptly went to the Mac store crossing my fingers, hoping it’s not out of stock, snatched it from the MUA’s hand before the girl next to me could even think of buying it, and headed straight to the counter. Probably my shortest and least expensive visit yet.
Plumful is a lustre finish, which means it’s sheer but buildable. I generally prefer lustre because it doesn’t feel too heavy on the lips and I can also adjust the shade to want I really want.
I’d describe the...
I was actually going to post this last month but forgot and just discovered these pics this week. It’s a haul over 2 months. Some of the stuff I ordered online in India, Dubai airport and a Finnish pharmacy!

The past month I’ve been sticking to very muted and everyday colours. I discovered a brilliant lip combo that I cannot stop using and some old favourites which need another mention.
July favourites :
01. Moisturizer : Forest Essentials : Night Treatment Cream : Sandalwood and Saffron
This smells heavenly! This isn’t the thickest cream I’ve used but it keeps me hydrated all night. I also use it in the morning sometimes id I’ve been lazy with my night routine and my skin is too dry.
02. Nail Polish : Sally Hansen : Pacific Blue
I picked up two Sally Hansen polishes a month a go (other one being...
This past month I’ve tried a lot of new products and some of them are mentioned here while others are trusted favourites that I use everyday. Hope you are all having a good month! This is a bit late but well overdue since I didn’t post May favourites.
My favourites for June :
01. Shampoo : Brocato : Hydrating Shampoo
I was using this when I was travelling and it works really well. It’s not too strong and I like the smell as well.
02. Conditioner : Brocato : Hydrating Conditioner
This is in an emulsion paste kinda form and also works just as well.
03. Eye Cream : Estee Lauder : Advanced Repair Night Cream
This isn’t something I use...
You might have heard whispers and praises about Mac Peaches and this post will contribute to that!
I discovered this blush very late and since then it’s been a very valued purchase for me. Mac’s blushes come in different finishes like Matte, Sheertone, Sheertone Shimmer etc. Peaches is a true peach matte blush.
There is no other way to describe the colour, it’s a good yellow toned peach. It’s also very pigmented. You could get a subtle sheer finish with this or build it up for a more intense look. I love wearing my blushes subtle and Peaches is no exception.
This looks beautiful on lighter skin tones and I was worried it might look a bit ashy on mine but it’s...
Hey, I was going to do a full tutorial like I usually do, but my camera ran out of battery and I was too lazy… oops…
So I thought I’d so a quick review. It’s a really simple look, but I’ve used colours I don’t wear often. I was experimenting! Olive and gold is a combination that looks gorgeous against deeper skintones. I was quite in the mood for a dramatic look! I usually don’t use so much of liner.
Hope you like it!
What to Use
1. A neutral olive green shadow. I used Mac Swimming. Yes, I know it isn’t olive green, but I made it work.
2. A bright gold eye shadow like Mac Amber Lights.
3. A dark green eye shadow like Inglot 414. I...
1. Rebecca Minkoff : Mini M.A.C : Almond
Good leather, very wearable. I’ve been wanting this bag for the longest time.
2. Soap and Glory : The Righteous Butter
I’ve read really good reviews about this. And now that’s its available in India, I really want it!
3. Mac : Mineralize Lipstick : Style Surge
It’s the perfect colour for summer.
4. Pipa Bella : Pastel bib necklace
It’s such a good statement piece to have. I don’t really have any pastel necklaces.
5. Caudalie : Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum
I’ve been reading up stuff and I feel like I need a hydrating serum for my skin. This might just be...
This is a post about how excitement induced by the sight of glitter, can overcome logic and reason. You’ll have to see the photos to know what I mean.
I first came across the Superglass collection on Temptalia’s site. And it was like love at first sight. I remembered seeing these on StrawberryNet and so I lurched for them! It was on discount, I took it as a sign from the universe and bought it promptly in the shades Fab Frenzy and Totally Bang!
Now that the story’s ended, let me rave about this lip gloss a little more.
This is not the best lip gloss in terms of consistency and there are some parts of the finish that I do not like. But, I haven’t come across...
This is a really casual chic outfit I love wearing if I’ve heading out for a movie or a casual date. It’s simple and light for summers.

1. Monochrome can at times feel too simple. Add more depth by using pieces with different textures throughout the outfit.
2. Adding a little bit of colour with accessories does help! I chose the floral clutch as an ode to...
