OPI The World Is Not Enough Nail Polish

OPI The World Is Not Enough Nail Polish

I feel like I've already spoken about this polish many times, but it was probably in favourites. I've loved this polish ever since I bought it, it definitely deserves it's own post! OPI The World Is Not Enough came out in the Skyfall collection (which is a pretty good collection anyway). It's OPI's microshimmer foil like formula that I really like, similar to Ink, Warm and Fozzie. It's actually a lot like a cool toned version of Warm and Fozzie (which is more bronze). The World Is Not Enough is a grey taupe kind…Read more
Cle de Peau Enriched Lip Luminizer in 203

Cle de Peau Enriched Lip Luminizer in 203

Hello there! I'm here to offer you some relief on this boring Wednesday. Let's talk about extravagant lipsticks! This particular lipstick was a definite splurge for me. If you're going to buy Cle de Peau, might as well buy it in Japan where it is cheaper. For me, the place I was shopping at was tax-exempt and had an additional discount for tourists. You can see where this is going... ;) Cle de Peau Enriched Lip Luminizer  in 203 (Chocolate Truffle) is essentially a sheer moisturising lipstick. Let's talk about the colour first which…Read more
Canmake Cream Cheek in CL01 Clear Red Heart

Canmake Cream Cheek in CL01 Clear Red Heart

One of my biggest discoveries last year was drugstore makeup in Japan. I bought a ton but the Canmake blushes really stood out for me. Canmake Cream Cheek in Clear Red Heart (CL01) is a sheer red cream blush. 'Clear' refers to it's truly translucent nature which makes it adapt to your skin tone and texture really well to give a very natural and seamless look. It has a gel like consistency which looks similar to the Josie Maran Cheek Gelee but it's creamier and softer. You need absolutely the tiniest bit. The pinky red…Read more

Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask

Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask

Hey everyone! Let's talk skincare! After my disaster with the Origins mask, it was a relief to find a deep cleansing mask that didn't dry me out horribly. Everyone, meet the Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask. Heavily lavender scented, it's a very light olive (pista) coloured soft clay mask. It's a bit clumpy and thick in consistency but easy to distribute. I leave it on for 10 minutes, by then the mask is almost white in colour with no uncomfortable stretchiness! It does feel a bit tight, but an adequate amount. I usually rinse it off a…Read more

Hope you are all having a glorious weekend! Let's talk about an absolute winner of a lip product! YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique is a staining lip gloss in a medium peach shade with a bit of silver shimmer. I caved and bought this pretty late but I'm so glad I picked this colour. From the plethora of shades available, I feel it's the most unique! For me it's a lot like Chanel Liberte in a gloss! My love for peach lipsticks that actually suit me is new and growing. Corail Aquatique is…Read more
Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

Hope you're all having a great weekend! Time for a cult lipstick review! I'm not a very makeup trendy person and so when I heard of Black Honey I had no idea what people were talking about. As usual, my investigation started with a quick Google search, which led to swatches, which in turn led to reviews and in the end, I was sold. I couldn't find this at my local Clinique counter, so I ended up getting it during my birthday haul. Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey was apparently famous in the…Read more
Mac Pinch Me Blush

Mac Pinch Me Blush

Usually, when I go into Mac I have a specific list of things I want to try/buy. I once found myself in an empty Mac with no particular idea of what I wanted. I took my time swatching and perusing everything, looking at products I didn't already know the names of, till I landed my eyes on this! As far as blushes go, after a lot of experimentation, "my" colour is definitely earthy and muted. Mac Pinch Me is a lovely earthy mix of brown and red. It's a 'Sheertone' blush, sheer pigmentation…Read more

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in Bronze

Hey guys! Hope you're week is going well! I'm super busy and tired these days. I know I just took a break last month but I need another! One of my 2014 favourites was this CC cream which I use as my everyday base.  Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in Bronze great lightweight base if you don't like wearing foundation. I actually find it somewhere in between a foundation and a tinted moisturizer. It's available in four shades and I'm using the darkest one. It's a little bit darker than Mac C4. I think it…Read more
