Wishlist : January 2014

Here’s a late January wishlist! I won’t be buying stuff anymore for atleast the next few months except essentials, so looking at this should calm me down.   01. Warehouse : Top : Knit top with lace front and embellishment I’ve been eyeing this for a long time. It’s available on Koovs. Btw, does anyone keep getting those annoying phone calls from koovs.com the minute you add something in your cart? I feel like I should have bought this during the GOSF sale but on second thought, it’s not something I need.   02. Burberry : Perfume : Body EDP I was also thinking of buying this from Koovs during GOSF more just left my cart empty at the end. I had a...

Paco Rabanne Lady Million Perfume

Posted on Nov 9, 2013 in Beauty

Paco Rabanne Lady Million Perfume

Paco Rabanne’s Lady Million was the very first night time or sexy fragrance I bought. It’s a perfume you wear to make an entrance! Or atleast that’s the idea behind it! It’s quite hard to describe but it’s a very sharp fruity one but just a tinsy bit spicy. Now when I say fruity I don’t mean like overly sweet or candy kind of fruity. It’s very warm, a bit citrusy and sweet.   So this has lemon, honey, Neroli, so that’s where it gets it’s fruitiness from. This might possibly be available at Parcos so just go smell it!   I also have the top, heart and base notes - Top :  Neroli, Orange flower, Arabian Jasmine Heart : Bitter...

August 2013 Favourites

I don’t have too many few favourites for the last month. A lot of it is stuff I’ve been using for a while but failed to mention before. August Favourites :     01. Body Mist : Nyassa : Passion Burst Body Mist (not pictured) I got this in a Vellvette box and I’ve been keeping this in my office. I love the grapefruit scent, it’s very refreshing. The tiny bottle also makes it easy to carry on the go!   02. Toner : Avene : Gentle Toner My previous one was very drying, but this one is so gentle and removes any leftover dirt and grime easily.  I’ve really been loving Avene products, completely worth it.   03. Foundation : Mac : Face and...

Narciso Rodriguez For Her Perfume

Narciso Rodriguez For Her Perfume

This was a very impulsive purchase for me. But it smells so amazing, I couldn’t not get it! I went into Parcos because I wanted to take a look at Rimmel, but I ended up buying only this. Narciso Rodriguez For Her comes in two types. The light pink bottle is is the Eau de Parfum, which is the concentrated one. I bought the Eau the Toilette because it’s still very strong and it was cheaper. How do I describe this scent… it’s definitely a scent for night time and special occasions. It has that floral, honey and slightly woody mix without being too much of either. I feel it’s very well balanced that way. It has top notes of honey, heart notes of amber and base...

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! Ahem… and the categories are…. Blush Nars Douceur – Review Bronzer Clarins Mosaique Bronzer – Review Concealer MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer in NW35 –...

Wishlist : December 2012

Merry Christmas! And there’s my christmas wishlist! I studied in a convent and would christmas at home and in school, much to the disappointment of my orthodox grandmother. But to my 10 year old mind, any festival with gifts was a worthy one.       01. Asos : Jacket : dark red peplum jacket with embellishment It looks so classy and very festive as well! I’m in love with that colour. I’m warming up to the peplum trend. This is perhaps a good one to jump into it.   02. Narciso Rodriques : Perfume : For her: I caved! I smelled this at Parcos recently and loved it. It’s so rich and enticing.   03. Guerlain : Make Up Palette : Lui eye and lip...

Armani Code Perfume

Armani Code Perfume

Happy Diwali folks! I’ve been to Mussoorie was the past week. It’s such a lovely place. I’m glad I went now when there aren’t too many tourists. It must be absolutely packed in summers! So moving on, I’m reviewing Armani Code (for women) today. I bought this in Paris a few years ago and I’ve been using it quite sparingly since.  It’s definitely a scent for special occasions or night outs. I find it too dominating (if you get what I mean) or heavy for everyday wear. I find the scent is very heavy and floral but not in a summery kind of way. It definitely feels very rich for night time. I find it similar to No 5 in that respect. It has the base notes...

September 2012 Favourites

This comes late on the schedule but these are products I reached out for last month. I’m in love with OPI Parlez Vous. It’s such a beautiful colour!           01. Dry Shampoo : Lush : No Drought It’s getting warmer and hotter and I so need this on second day hair. It smells lovely and I’m really loving the powder application more than sprays.   02. Lipstick : Revlon : Colorburst in Peach It’s a light coral colour. It’s looks great. I wish it was a bit more moisturizing though.   03. Eyeshadow : NYX : Taupe Staple base eye shadow for me. Can’t ever go wrong with this.   04. Eyeshadow : Mac :...

This month I went back to some products I had neglected but needed to use up and som new ones too. I am IN LOVE with the Laura Mercier Mineral Foundation. I don’t know what I’ve been doing all this time without it… I’ve been loving chunky glitter polishes even though they are a pain to take off.             01. Perfume : Ralph by Ralph Lauren : EDT 02. Face Powder : Laura Mercier : Mineral Foundation in Sand Beige 03. Soap : Khadi : Jasmine 04. Lipstick : Maybelline : Colorsensational Hi-shine in Coral Lustre 05.

June 2013 Favourites

It’s July already! Sorry for being so behind on posting this. I’ve been trying to stick to my posting schedule but they are all getting delayed. I’m trying to rectify that from the coming week. You might sense a theme here. Everything looks peachy pink or a variation it, doesn’t it? I didn’t realize that until I saw this picture. So anyway, here are my June favourites!       01. Body Lotion : Bath & Body Works : White Citrus I love the smell of this. Very fresh and citrus like. The consistency of these isn’t as thick as the triple moisture ones.   02. Powder : Rimmel : Match Perfection Ultra Creamy Compact Powder : Soft...

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 : The Body Shop : Vitamin E Energizing Face Spritz It’s a really good face mist. It makes the skin really cool and gives it a fresh feeling. I...

Dior J’adore Perfume

Dior J’adore Perfume

I can’t believe the weekend is almost over. The weeks go by so quickly!! Today I‘ll be trying my best to review Dior’s J’adore! The fragrance is like floral and a slight hint of rose, also a bit fruity. Overtime though, the scent turns more woody when it lingers. I’ve used up quite a bit of this already but J’adore is something I can even wear during the day. It’s not a very heavy scent despite the mix of rose, floral and wood.  It’s more like a muted Lady Million for day wear! I’m not in love with this scent, like my Burberry Brit. But the scent adds more sophistication. It typically does last all day but it’s not a very strong...
