Vellvette Box : July 2013

Vellvette Box : July 2013

I got my July Vellvette box pretty early this month! And I'm quite happy with this one as well! So the theme for this month's box are quick fixes. I'm just happy to see more makeup and less skincare in this one! Photos!         01. Sally Hansen : Miracle Cure : Nail Treatment (full size) This is a treatment for really damaged nails. If you wear nail polish as often as I do, you do notice your nails being more brittle or just a bit dried out. This is excellent timing because…Read more

April 2013 Favourites

I have a lot of old favourites this month and a couple of new ones as well. Some of the products are ones I use every week and I somehow always overlooked them for these posts. So let's get started!             01. Nail Polish : Illamasqua : Phallic Phallic is such a beautiful deep shimmery blue. You could say it's the perfect midnight blue. I will gush more about this in a another dedicated post, but I was wearing this a lot this month. I really loved the…Read more
Rose Gold Eye Tutorial

Rose Gold Eye Tutorial

Hello munchkins! So I haven't done a tutorial in a really long time and with all the free time I have I'll doing a couple in the upcoming weeks. I have really really deepset eyes and so I generally like to wear eye shadows that make my eye area brighter! For the past few months, this has been my go-to look for any occasion. It's really easy to do and goes with pretty much everything as well. Hope you like it!       Tutorial :      Read more

Best of Makeup 2012-2013

It's been a brilliant year for me. I started working, missed my student days dearly but decided to bring the fun at my workplace to compensate for that! ;) Starting this blog was a decision I was terrified of but I'm happy I took the leap. It's something I do because it makes me happy and it's very fulfilling. Throughout the year I made it a point to review the best and favourites more often. Hence you will find reviews here as well! So here are the best of make up in 2012!…Read more
Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara in Blackest Black

Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara in Blackest Black

Revlon's Grow Lusicous Mascara was one I've been hearing a lot about. Before I go on to review this, I should probably say more about what my preferences with a mascara are. I don't like mascara that makes the lashes look blatantly fake; clumpiness, too thick to be real, flakiness etc. I would be happier using fake lashes if  I wanted it to look editorial.  I prefer one whitch coats the lashes well and they look distinct and really black. With that said, after having tried a few high end ones I was…Read more
Givenchy Phenomen’ Eyes Waterproof Mascara in Water Black

Givenchy Phenomen’ Eyes Waterproof Mascara in Water Black

I contemplated a lot about this purchase. It's way too much for a mascara, ridiculous price. But I had heard so many good things about it. Then I saw a photo of the wand it comes with and I was sold. It's perfect for my lower lashes and the inner corner upper ones. Givenchy's Phenomen' Eyes comes with a waterproof range and one that's not. Over here I'm reviewing the waterproof one. I'm almost out of it and I thought I'd review it soon before it dries up. The colour water black is…Read more

Perfume : Ralph by Ralph Lauren : EDT 02. Face Powder : Laura Mercier : Mineral Foundation in Sand Beige 03. Soap : Khadi : Jasmine 04. Lipstick…Read more

May 2012 Favourites

May 2012 Favourites

May was all about wearing coral-ey colours and light makeup. Wearing too much makeup in this heat is unbearable!! You don't necessarily want things that stay on all day. I do wash my face from time to time. But I want products that fade well and don't leave a mess.     On to this month's favourites! 01. Perfume : Bvlgari :  Pour Femme This was in last month's favourites too but I love it's floral scent. Sadly, this bottle is empty now and I'll be moving on to another mini perfume. 02. Face Mist :…Read more
