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...
This month I actually have a few favourites from December too because I’ve been using these products non stop!
01. Face Cream : Clinique : Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
I’ve been using this as my daily face moisturizer, I love it. I’ve never used a cream-gel formation before.
02. Perfume : BVLGARI : Pour Femme
This is my everyday perfume now. I love the scent!
03. Powder : Givenchy : Prisme Again Visage Compact Powder Quartet : Happy Sun
When I’m too lazy for foundation, this is my go to product. It gives a nice even look. I carry this with me everywhere!
December was a month for Mac products! I had an early birthday haul and found a few awesome new products!
01. Perfume : Narciso Rodriguez : For her (edt)
This was on my wishlist and I found a lucky discount and decided to buy it! I love the scent and lingers on all day.
02. Lipstick : Maybelline : Colorsensation Moisture Extreme : Brick Rose
This is one of the best reds to wear for the fall and winter. Very appropriate for red shy girls like me.
03. Lipstick : Mac : Fast Play
This is my favourite everyday lipstick. It’s darker than your usual MLBB shade but it suits me really well.
04. Blush : Mac ...
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….
Nars Douceur – Review
Clarins Mosaique Bronzer – Review
MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer in NW35 –...
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 smelled this at Parcos recently and loved it. It’s so rich and enticing.
03. Guerlain : Make Up Palette : Lui eye and lip palette
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...
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. Bronzer : Bourjois : Chocolate Bronzer
06. Face Cream : Vichy : Essentielles
07. Eye Liner : Maybelline : Kohl...
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 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...
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...
01. Topshop : Spot print shopper bag
This looks so cute. I want a big where I can just dump stuff and take off, no matter what the size! The pastel colours make it perfect for spring.
02. Stella by Stella McCartney
I smelled this at the airport once and it was heavenly. I ended up buying Elie Saab but I’ve been wanting this as well.
03. Robert Clergerie mint strapped wedges
I’m completely into wedges lately. I wear them all the time. These are adorable!
04. Revlon Colorburst lipgloss in Papaya
I’m late on the orange trend as I found it a bit scary but this is a very good colour to try out! I need to be bolder with my lip gloss colours than my...
It’s for the April favourites! I’ve started using tinted moisturizers even more, since its summer. But other than that there are a few products I discovered this month that I LOVE!! Onto the list then!
01. Dry Shampoo : Toni & Guy : Refreshing Dry Shampoo
I very curious to dry this out. I don’t want to shampoo my hair everyday and this makes second day hair look a lot better. I don’t think this is the best result but it does soak up some of the greasiness.
02. Tinted Moisturizer : Stila : Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer : 01 Dark
With summer on full swing, foundation just isn’t a good match for everyday wear. Stila’s tinted moisturizer...
It’s the time of the month! I mean, to err… talk about my favourites! The products mentioned below are not only the most used this month but also what I would reach out for the most on occasion. Onto the list! But a pretty picture first.
01. Concealer : MAC : Moisture Select Concealer : NW35
I have panda eyes. Although, that doesn’t make me look cute! To be very honest, if I completely cover them with heavy concealer, it just looks really unnatural. I think that to look a bit natural, some unevenness should be there, and not a plain mannequin. Just a tinsy bit. Moisture Select is what I started using this month. It’s not creamy and yet it stays on so well. I lasts...
I signed up for blisscovered quite late and they offered to send me the February box! The feeling you get when you return home tired from office, and there’s a pretty unopenened package in front of you is too good!!
This months contents were quite diverse but I wished there was more makeup less skincare. Afterall, there is only so much skincare you can use in a month. I won’t review the contents just yet.
01. Forrest Essentials – Neem and Saffron Face Wash
02. H2o – Sea Salt Body Butter
03. Calvin Klein – Shock
04. Chambor – Eyeliner in Forever Blue
05. Lancome – Genifique – Youth...
