Just Swatches : Nars Blushes

Just Swatches : Nars Blushes

Hello there! I haven't done one of these in a while. I don't see myself buying anymore Nars blushes, I thought it would be a good time to do a collective post on them. I present to you, my Nars blush collection which is very dear to me! I was very new into makeup when I found myself attracted to Nars blushes, Douceur being the first one I picked out. I wasn't wearing blush regularly at the time and it's the first blush that made me get into the habit of applying blush…Read more
Nars Audacious Lipstick in Grace

Nars Audacious Lipstick in Grace

I'm back from my much needed break! Morjim beach was amazing! The rest of Goa was way too crowded due to the long weekend but Morjim is far away and it was just the right amount of crowd. The beach is very clean although the waves are a bit more "angry" than the rest of Goa. Still, it was an amazing holiday. We were probably the only Indians there, it's still weird to find every single menu and sign in Russian! The lipstick I'm reviewing today was in a recent haul. I fell…Read more
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
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger

I can't live without concealer. I'm not the sort of person that can't go out the door without makeup. I've lived without makeup for most of my life but just adding concealer makes a massive difference to my appearance. That's actually how I started looking into makeup because I wanted to hide my horrendous dark circles. It took me a lot of trial and error to find a combination that really works for me. I have a very pigmented under eye situation with all sorts of colours running through. I also have very deep…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

Nars Blush in Deep Throat

Nars Blush in Deep Throat

Nars blushes are a weakness for me! I got this particular one in a giftset and it's a very flattering shade. Nars Deep Throat is light peachy pink powder blush with gold shimmer. Deep Throat and Orgasm come from the same "peachy pink with gold" family but Deep Throat is a lot lighter. It's more pink whereas Orgasm is more peachy. This also has less sheen and shimmer than Orgasm. If you ever found Orgasm to be a bit too shimmery, you might prefer this one. The warm pink tone with gold shimmer…Read more
Nars Blush in Taj Mahal

Nars Blush in Taj Mahal

You know I have a soft spot for Nars blushes, but this one is actually my least used blush. I bought this when, like everyone else, I was having an orange phase. This seemed like the perfect blush for it. Nars Blush in Taj Mahal is a powder blush in orange with gold shimmer. When you blend it, you can really spot a nice gold sheen across it. It's more of a yellowy-orange than a reddish one. I do really like the colour, it can seem too much for a neutral everyday look…Read more
