Nars Orgasm Illuminator

Highlighters are a wonderful thing! They make you shiny and it looks so pretty when your face catches the light and something glimmers! I cannot praise Nars Illuminator enough!! It's the perfect highlighter or blush as you choose to use it. Orgasm is a beautiful peachy pink highlighter. When you put this on, it feels so cool to touch and so smooth. It brings a nice gold sheen. I don't always wear blush, but I love highlighters! It's sheer and blends quite easily. There is one snag though. This doesn't fade well. After…Read more

Haul and MedPlusBeauty Review

I was looking for bronzey neutral shades that I didn't have. I also wanted a blue based red lipstick and Ruby Woo seems so out of reach. I decided to buy Revlon's True Red. I decided to give MedPlusBeauty a try. I'll start by saying that I'm pleased with the haul and the website. But the way they handle delivery is atrocious! And I probably won't buy again from MedPlus because of it. More on the story below, I'll start with the goodies! 01. NYX - Single Eyeshadow - Taupe 02. NYX -…Read more

Who doesn't love a good spy/action thriller? The Debt (2011) is a must watch for such lovers! I cannot turn away a movie with Sam Worthington and Helen Mirren!

Bath & Body Works Moonlight Path Triple Moisture Body Cream

I wish bath and Body works was in India. The Body Shop needs some competition! That said, I love their products and fragrances. I will describe more in detail below but the consistency and staying power of their moistuizers and body lotions is why I like them best. I've found that it precisely does what I need for my skin. So I product I'm reviewing is from the Moonlight Path range. It's the Triple Moisture Body Cream. The cream itself is extremely soft and almost like an emulsion. It gets a lotion form…Read more

Ralph by Ralph Lauren Perfume

Ralph Lauren is a very beachy and fresh scent.Everything about this scent exudes  fresh, clean, beachy and apple. Its a perfect day scent for summers. It lasts all day and isn't very strong, but it builds up quite quickly. It takes time to settle in and you might find it stronger a minutes after applying, not right away. The fragrance is of apples, floral, slightly musky too. The packaging is quite simple but nevertheless looks good in a clean way. Photos below!          Read more
Mac Touch Lipstick

Mac Touch Lipstick

I was looking for a nude lipstick for everyday wear. Generally I prefer sheer lipsticks for office. Mac Mocha was a choice in the list but it looked too orange and obvious. Touch came to my rescue! I haven't tried a Lustre lipstick before, but I'm actually quite happy with it! It's sheer but buildable coverage. The colour appears very dark brown but when you swatch it, its actually a pinky brown that evens out my lips really well. I've been wearing this all month! Although its nude for my lip, it doesn't…Read more

Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet

You must excuse my lack on continuity with posts, I haven't been keeping well lately. My very first lip gloss was from Clarins. That was almost 4-5 years ago. I've recently rediscovered my love for the brand. The products are well packaged, good durability and the quality is suberb! The same goes for their skincare line. Today, I'll be reviewing the Colour Quench Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet. These glosses are sheer, with microshimmer and a corresponding fragrance as well. Mine tastes like strawberries and its so yummy! In the tube it appears…Read more

China Glaze Four Leaf Clover

When Mulberry Alexa exploded on the scene, I wanted the watermelon one so badly!! Instead, I bought China Glaze Four Leaf Clover! The colour is a total dupe! And I love it! When it comes to spring colours, I love pastel colour but I don't think they look that good with my skin tone. Instead the slightly darker bright colours suit me more. This is definitely one of them! I have to give you a warning though, the colouring in the photographs is slightly off. I tried with 3 different cameras and all…Read more

Models Own Loose Powder in Deep Mauve

Models Own is a brand that I stumbled across at Asos. I read their reviews and was curious to try their eye shadows and nail polishes. Their loose powder is the first one I ever owned. The shade Deep Mauve is a stunning blue based purple with microshimmer. The pigmentation is AMAZING and the coverage is so opaque, with just one stroke. Its not really a deep mauve. Over the lid, it comes off as a bright purple. The shimmers are blue, violet and silver mixed together, hence it also gives a blue…Read more

Tresemme Heat Defence Styling Spray

Using a heat protectant is so important!! I hate it when salons don't use it either! So anyway, I have tried many and I keep coming back to this. It's not easily available in India and I can't ship it from overseas. The store where I usually buy it doesn't always stock it. So currently, I'm using Tigi. The packging is really good. The nozzle has a lock, so its travel friendly. I like the long handle spray rather than the press down aerosol ones. That way I dont have to check where…Read more
