Nyx Butter Glosses

Nyx Butter Glosses

Sometimes you just want to believe a drugstore hype! I waited till the hype died down the Nyx Butter Glosses and went ahead with the purchase anyway. I blame eBay for giving me an amazing deal. I picked out three shades - Tiramisu : Pale pink and toffee kind of shade, it's a little too light for me. I'm wearing it by itself below but I generally wear a darker lip pencil underneath so it'll suit me better. Although it is quite pigmented, since it's lighter than my lip colour, it can look…Read more
OPI Just Spotted The Lizard

OPI Just Spotted The Lizard

I feel like I'm not too excited about new nail polish collections these days. Granted, there are only so many colours and texture combinations one can make but I feel like everything's already been done. I've been content to go over my collection again and again to find shades I fall in love with. Everyone and their grandma purchased the limited edition Chanel Peridot when it came out except me because it was inaccessible at the time. Again, not a revolutionary shade, but it set a trend. Thankfully, the gold to teal duochrome…Read more
Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet

Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet

There's almost this sense of accomplishment you get when you find a bargain worth well beyond its value. Sadly, I often tend to lose these gems in my makeup drawer. I bought Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet a year ago, used it for a few months and forgot about it. Thankfully, my democratized monthly makeup rotation helped me rediscover it and I've been on a mission to use it up. Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paints were probably released last year. Along with Maybelline Color Tattoos it was the next great drugstore product. Among…Read more
Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Plum Lush

Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Plum Lush

Hey everyone! It's been a while! Hope you're all having a great weekend! I have a lot of catching up to do, I'll probably be glued to my laptop all weekend. Few lipsticks bring out such excitement in me! Plum Lush caught my eye ever since I first spotted it on Temptalia. Initially I scoffed at a lipstick costing $50. Funny how that changes. Every review of the Matte formula made the decision easier though. It was just a matter of when I'd get it. I put it off for a long time…Read more
Guerlain Gloss D’enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in Tangerine Vlam

Guerlain Gloss D’enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in Tangerine Vlam

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a good weekend! Time for a lip gloss moment. Guerlain Gloss D'enfer Maxi Shine Lip Glosses had been largely out of my radar for a very long time. When the Chanel Aqualumieres were discontinued, these were touted as an "adequate" substitute and obviously, I was interested. What followed was a mad dash to get this and few other shades. I'm sorted when it comes to lip glosses. I really love these, they're my favourite high end lip gloss formula after the YSL Glossy Stains. What I look for in…Read more
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50V

Biologique Recherche Lotion P50V

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a pleasant Monday. I mentioned in this in my skincare routine, but I was suffering from random acne on my chin that I could manage but would never fully go away. I thus came across exfoliating/acid toners and decided to purchase Biologique Recherche Lotion P50V since anyone who used it raved about it. Lotion P50V is formulated for sensitive skin as opposed to P50, which is widely used for other skin types. The other variant is P50W which is meant for mature skin. It has a watery consistency with a slight yellow tint. I…Read more
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boheme

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boheme

Hello there! Hope you're doing well! Let's talk about something completely unrelated first! My love for laser tag has reached embarrassing Barney Stinson heights. I enjoy hiding in corners and sneaking up on people. I'm not very good at close range duels though! Do you like hitting people with harmless beams too? I've spoken about my love for the Rouge Coco Shine formula when I reviewed Liberte. Here's take two! Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boheme is a sheer pink toned red, moisturising your lips all the way through the rather short 3 hour…Read more
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

You might have heard a reasonable amount of praise for The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer, here's one more in the crowd. The highlighter is known best for it's universal colour, pigmentation, fine quality, glow sans sparkle and the relatively affordable price! Mary-Lou is a champagne gold colour, it's not too warm though. It translates very well on the skin as a colour that's not too cool or warm. The powder is very very fine and there's no chunky glitter or distinct shimmer, it all looks seamless. Unless you carefully it use very little, this…Read more
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils

Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencils

Hello! Hope you're all having a lovely weekend! Nyx Jumbo Pencils are a great effective budget option for cream eyeshadows. I have three shades with me, Black Bean, Strawberry Milk and Yogurt. Overall, these are very pigmented, creamy and easy to blend with almost no fallout. They do sheer out easily and can be layered. These crease on me after maybe 5-6 hours but personally, I love using these as a base with an eyeshadow over it. I rarely use them on their own. Black Bean : It's a matte black shade that's very…Read more
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Intense Nude

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Intense Nude

Hi everyone! I'm loving the moderate rains here, it's not too humid and it's certainly not too hot! Never change! The last couple of weeks have been busy work wise but I've been keeping myself entertained by rearranging my makeup. It's so therapeutic. I also got rid of a bit of old makeup and I have a Back to Mac trip in the works. Which lipstick should I get? Speaking of lipsticks, get settled for another review. This time it's the well loved Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Intense Nude. I…Read more
