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
Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Hooked on Pink

Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Hooked on Pink

Hope you're all having a great weekend! I'm going to keep this review short and sweet! When I started out with lipsticks Maybelline Colorsensational where one of my first ones. Till now I've only purchased a two lipsticks and one of them was from this range. :) This is a colour that's often overlooked by me but so pretty. If you want to get into wearing bright or pink lipsticks, this is a great one to start off with. Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Hooked on Pink is a slightly muted warm fuchsia with no shimmer which makes it more daytime…Read more
Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in Bronze

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
Lorac PRO Palette

Lorac PRO Palette

Yes, I'm finally reviewing this. You've probably heard all praises about this already. Time to hear it all just once more. Let's start with the basics. You get 16 eyeshadows which include 8 mattes and 8 shimmer shades.  Should keep everyone happy! Excellent colour selection which would work on all skintones. Also a good mix of warm and cool toned shades without being too extreme. The consistency is very buttery smooth. It almost feels creamy when you touch them. I find them creamier than the Urban Decay eyeshadows and the L'oreal Infallible ones.…Read more
YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey

YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey

When it comes to concealer, I've rarely strayed from the my power duo (Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach and Mac Moisture Select in NW35). Curiosity and hype got the better of me when I purchased this. YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey (5) is a concealer/brightener/highlighter all wrapped up in a pen. I'm going to specifically talk about using this as a concealer. The shade is a little more orange than my skin tone but I figured that would help with colour correction. The other shades were too pink or way off for…Read more
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Liberte

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Liberte

Nothing really motivates me to wake up (early) on a Sunday. One of the exceptions in an India vs Pakistan match! Okay, it wasn't quite the I'm-choking-my-pillow-to-death, down to the wire kind of match I was hoping for, but soooo happy we won! Overall, Valentine's day and an India win made the weekend pretty great! That brings me to the downer that is Monday! Hopefully, writing about this lipstick will be enough to cheer me up to face the day! After my success with Mademoiselle, I was more open to trying Chanel lipsticks. All it took was…Read more
Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream

Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream

I've been a moisturizer  hopper ever since I started the blog. While I've found good lightweight moisturizers for the summer/travelling (Avene Smoothing Rebalancing Emulsion), when it comes to winter I still haven't found the one. Here's the latest one I've tried. Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream was on my wishlist for a long time. I really wanted to try the brand and the day cream,  it generally had great reviews, seemed like the safest option. Did the deed when I had a voucher on FeelUnique. The minute you open it up, the first thing…Read more
Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

Hi guys! I'm having a rough week and I really need to sleep more. It's just one of those days where I want to curled up in my blanket all day. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask as you might guess is a cleansing mask. I've been using this for around 5 months now and here's how it's been. I know most people love this product but I haven't had a great experience with it. Firstly, I have dry skin so it's probably a bit too much for me. It's partly my fault because…Read more
Essie Splash of Grenadine Nail Polish

Essie Splash of Grenadine Nail Polish

Hi guys! Hope you're all having a great start to the week! I have a Sephora Pune update at the end of the post but for now let's try to focus on this gorgeous spring appropriate nail polish! Essie Splash of Grenadine is such a difficult colour to describe. Pinky purple? Lavender pink? Very very cool toned light pink? I'm going to settle for #D384C4. It's also hard to photograph exactly which is why I have it below in all possible natural light settings. Maybe we can all just agree that it's pretty.…Read more
