Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Ginger Pop

Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Ginger Pop

There are  a few blushes that are in their own league, ones I'd repurchase without a second thought. This is a new addition to that! When this was released, I remember feeling excited with the promos, I knew I had to try these out. The reviews started trickling in and it was all I hoped for, I tried it myself and it's a happy marriage. :) Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Ginger Pop brings out the makeup romantic in me but aside from that it is a really great blush worth trying.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Brun Bohéme

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Brun Bohéme

If there's one thing I miss while travelling, it's proper tea! Tea bags just don't do it me... Does anyone else feel this way? I'm settling in nicely now though. Back at work, all unpacked, I've just started loading in all the photos from the trip. This is quick review on Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Brun Bohéme. The colour here is key, a really nice brick red, rusty brown-red kind of colour. It looks muted and not too brown. Rouge Edition is quite an old range but at the time there weren't too many…Read more
Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lasting Satin Lip Color in Plum 600

Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lasting Satin Lip Color in Plum 600

Hi there! It's been exactly a month since my last post and I need to fill you in! My best friend got married last month and it was so amazing. There was so much preparation to do, all my spare time went there. Later in the month I also had my trip to Australia so I had to get a lot of work done before I left. The trip was lovely! I really liked Melbourne the most. Hugged the life out of every Koala bear I encountered ( just three). It was a very…Read more

Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick in Dragon (RD 514)

Hey guys! I'm so glad for this long weekend! I seriously need to catch up on sleep. In other news, my best friend is getting married soon and I'm on full time bridesmaid duty! I'm so excited!! Right after the wedding I also have a trip to Australia that I need to prepare for. It's going to be a mad month, hopefully I can keep up with blogging too! ^_^ Back to some lipstick love, here's one of the most underrated formulas you need to know about! I've spoken about the Shiseido Perfect Rouge formula…Read more
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
Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette – The Dolce Vita

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette – The Dolce Vita

Hope you're having a great start to the weekend! I'm spending mine working unfortunately! I bought this a couple of months ago and it's become one of my favourites palettes to use! I used it on my birthday and a couple of other occasions, it's very special to me! Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in The Dolce Vita is a bronze-gold eyeshadow quad. It has 3 satin/pearl finish shades and one glitter shade. It's not Lorac Pro level of pigmentation, but it's still pretty good. They're more pigmented when used wet but I never do.…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
YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique

YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique

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
