The Sheer Red Lipstick Edit

The Sheer Red Lipstick Edit

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I wanted to see The Hobbit but had so much stuff to do so I might catch a late night show this week. I'm kinda sad it's all ending though. So for the last two months, I've really really been loving sheer red lipsticks. I don't know what it is I always go through these phases where I have my usual chunk of nudes and bolds that I wear but on the side I have something else going on (lipstick wise). These are some of the…Read more
Guide to Berry Lips

Guide to Berry Lips

If you are uncomfortable around an excessive amount of lipsticks, please retreat! This post is only for the brave! I'm hoping, that this post will help you pick out or discover colours you'd like for your fall/autumn/winter looks. Now I don't strictly follow seasonal trends but overall, I thought this post would be helpful to discover berry toned lipsticks (and other lip products). We're gonna work in three parts here.   Part One : Just Give Me Lipsticks To Look At Umm... ok. Here you go.     Part Two : I Don't…Read more
Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease

I'm feeling particularly lethargic this weekend. I'm hoping some more Diwali food is going to cure that! Meanwhile, here's something from my lipstick stash, Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate lip crayons. The fact that I feel like I'm applying markers to myself is enough to make me giddy. Tease from the Lacquer Balm range is a burnt orange kind of shade with zero shimmer. The orange is a bit deeper which, I feel,  makes it easier to wear. I have comparison swatches below but as you can…Read more
Just Swatches : Revlon Lip Butters

Just Swatches : Revlon Lip Butters

Welcome to the swatchfest! I think Revlon Lip Butters are the bomb and still very affordable now at Rs. 600, as 800 is almost the norm for new lipsticks now. They're sheer, very thin in consistency, lightweight on the lips and very very glossy. Of course, not the most longlasting but these are sheer. not going to say more here since you can read the individual reviews if you are interested in a particular shade. My favourites are Pink Truffle, Raspberry Pie and Juicy Papaya! I think Cotton Candy was a very unnecessary purchase…Read more
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
