What’s In My Bag : Travel Edition

What’s In My Bag : Travel Edition

On my review posts I'm always talking about how travel friendly products are etc. Since I spent the better half of last month doing just that, I thought I'd do a 'What's in my purse' instead of the usual monthly favorites! Let's dig in! I mainly carried 3 bags. The red one with two transparent sides was for keeping makeup. I kept the products on one side and the brushes on the other. The pink one was also kept in my luggage and it contained skincare stuff, perfume etc. And lastly, the gorgeous…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
Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Polish in Wintermint

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Polish in Wintermint

I have a lovely nail polish to review today! It also happens to be a dupe (with minor variations) for Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream which has me squeeing on the inside. Revlon Parfumerie launched in the US a couple of months ago. Basically they are cute bottles with good quality scented nail polish. I don't really care about the scented part but Wintermint has a nice minty scent. Wintermint has a mint green base with gold and green micro glitter along with large teal glitters suspended in it. From afar it looks like…Read more
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic

Two things you need to know about this product - 1. It's (almost) a dupe for Mac Impassioned and b. It pretty fabulous! Time to move on to details! Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm released many moons ago in UK and US. They finally heard our cries in India and put us out of our misery. They come in 8 shades and today I'll be reviewing Unapologetic, a shade which you must swatch or try once even if you aren't buying it! Unapologetic is a bright neon pink. It's a very warm toned pink…Read more
Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Peach

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Peach

I'm back with a lipstick review. I had a busy weekend and no sleep! I want this week to get over already! I'm reviewing the Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Peach which is a true peachy shade with silver pearlescent bits. Most colours of this shade can look a bit more pink on me but this distinctly maintains it's peach tone. So, very true to the name! I didn't find this on par with True Red in terms of formula though. It's a lightweight creamy formula but the pigmentation is sheer to medium. It takes…Read more
Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring

Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring

To be very honest, I don't always follow the seasonal trends when it comes to nail polish. My mood and what catches my eye pretty much dictates what I'm wearing at the moment. But for those who do, here are my top 10 picks for spring and summer! I like blues, greens and this year, the radiant orchid shade as well. Let's get started!       01. H&M Newlyweds - This is a lovely sheer polish which has a milky white base and gold shimmer densely scattered. It looks very understated and…Read more
Haul : YSL, Burberry, Chanel, Hourglass etc

Haul : YSL, Burberry, Chanel, Hourglass etc

I've been on a naughty haul! Well, technically, this is a collective haul over the last two months. Some of these are gifts since it was my birthday in Jan. So I have a mix of blushes and went made over lipsticks mainly. I also got a couple of Formula X for Sephora nail polishes but I forgot to take pictures of those. I really love everything I got. I've already used the mascara and the YSL lipstick in Ultimate Beige a lot, I love it! Burberry Beauty is something I was looking forward to…Read more
Revlon Naughty Nail Polish

Revlon Naughty Nail Polish

Revlon nail polishes never really caught my eye until they started coming up with dupes for Deborah Lipmann polishes! More on that later but for now, I'm reviewing the shade Naughty. Naughty is a dark purple and charcoal grey duochrome polish. It also has very fine purple microshimmer which can be detected under direct light. It does look slightly pearlescent as well. However, the duochrome is subtle and not very stark like some other shades. Even so, you get a nice effect of purple in the middle and gray on the sides. The…Read more

Icy Blue New Year’s Eve Eye Tutorial

Icy Blue New Year’s Eve Eye Tutorial

New Year's Eve is arguably the only time I experiment more with makeup! This year I wanted to so a really different eye look. Now I'm no genius, this look is inspired by this. Not sure who the original blogger is but if you do, please let me know so I can give credit. :)     I changed it up a bit to suit my eye shape. I don't like a lot of makeup on the bottom and I also have hooded/deep set eyes. but you will need to change the crease…Read more
