Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania in Dazzling Diva, Red Carpet and Starry Night

Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania in Dazzling Diva, Red Carpet and Starry Night

So if you've been reading the blogs, everyone's going crazy over the new Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania nail polishes! They might just be the best thing launched in the new year so far! I may be a budding lipstick addict but I'm still a nail polish addict at heart. Add glitter into the mix and I'm floored. Ever since the textured nail polishes were launched, all the expensive ones like OPI Liquid Sand, Zoya Pixie Sand just aren't very easily available in India. But the Colorshow ones are amazing quality and the…Read more
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+

For the longest time, sunscreen (or rather it's application) has always been something I knew I should use but never did. Even in school my skin could react to extreme exposure and those were telling signs that I needed to take care of my skin. I guess my knowledge and interest about such things improved when I started reading beauty blogs and ultimately I could no longer put it off. I had used a few sunscreens before this and I hated the experience. It made me look shiny, or there was a whitecast,…Read more
Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise

Hey guys! I'm currently working on a new layout for Xuvious. It may very well be a marathon coding weekend for me! Today's review is from Josie Maran which is a natural products range. It's a mouthful, but here's the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise. A what? It's just a cream blush but the consistency in the pot is jelly like. It's similar to the Canmake Cream Blushes but thinner. Of course, it doesn't move around like a jelly, but it's very smooth to touch. The blush is very sheer…Read more
Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten

Stila Lip Glaze in Kitten

The monsoons are properly here! That makes me a happy bunny! Today I'll be reviewing Stila's Lip Glaze in the shade Kitten. I got this with the Merry & Bright Palette. The shade Kitten is a cult favourite. Originally in eyeshadow form, it's a warm peach shimmer and really beautiful. In a lip gloss form, it's a great layering shade and also pretty on its own if you don't mind a ton of shimmer. Lip Glaze is basically a lip gloss but these come with a pen like packaging, similar to YSL Touche…Read more
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion

Hope you guys are having a great Sunday! I'm up earlier than usual today as I type this out while sipping hot tea. Today's review is of a great affordable lipstick. Rimmel's Moisture Renew range is really good bright colours and are good quality wise as well. Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion is a pretty pinky red shade. I'd say it looks a tad bit more pink in the tube but more red on the lips. You can see a comparison pic below, it's a bit more red than YSL Rose…Read more
Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lasting Satin Lip Color in Pink 512

Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lasting Satin Lip Color in Pink 512

Hey guys! I'm back from my break! I had an amazing trip to Japan and China, but now I'm dead tired. It's been just naps and World Cup matches for me this weekend. Anyway here's a review of a really well made lipstick. Giorgio Armani has a really amazing makeup line. The lipsticks, foundations, Eyes to Kill eyeshadows are all really worth the extra moolah. Today I'm reviewing the Rouge D'Armani Lasting Satin Lip Color in Pink 512. It's a medium cool toned pink which is very flattering on light and medium skintones. For…Read more
The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter

The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter

I really like the limited edition stuff that The Body Shop comes out with. This came out in fall I think, I'm hoping they release it again soon! Also, the Blueberry range is available at the moment! It's amazing, seriously, go buy it! Coming back to the review, here's The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter. It's a heavenly, heavenly peach fragrance which is so refreshing! Honestly, it's like slathering peach ice tea on yourself. Suffice to say, I definitely getting this again when it comes out. It's light peach in colour and very…Read more
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in 52 Beige Rose

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in 52 Beige Rose

So before I go on and talk about this foundation, this post will also serve as an outlet for a mini rant about the World Cup. My routine is so messed up, I stay up everyday till 2-3! Concealer saves the day! Watching Spain concede 5 goals was torture. :( That said, the Sony Six pre-show Cafe Rio coverage is the worst television I've ever seen. I seriously miss ESPN-Star and John Dykes. Getting rid of John Abraham and bringing in Sunil Chhetri made it bearable. I'm still not happy though. They don't…Read more
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Kiss Me Coral

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Kiss Me Coral

Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks are like the stalwards of good affordable lipsticks in India. Cherries in the Snow is another classic shade I like. Today, I'll be reviewing Kiss Me Coral. The name Kiss Me Coral is a bit misleading as there really is no pink in the shade. It's a muted deep orange. I have a couple of comparison swatches below. Maybelline Bronze Orange is deeper but still muted, Milani Orange-Gina is very shimmery and a lot lighter, Revlon Lacquer Balm in Tease is a sheer and glossier version. I included Mac…Read more
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar

This has got to be one of the cutest cosmetic items I own. It's so light and small, very prone to getting lost in my purse but overall a pretty good blush. Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar is described as a peachy pink but honestly, on me it's more of a light rosy pink. This supposedly also has skincare benefits, which not what I bought it for so, I can't really review that aspect of this product. It's a cream blush which turns to powder and gives a matte finish. Unlike…Read more
