Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet

Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet

There's almost this sense of accomplishment you get when you find a bargain worth well beyond its value. Sadly, I often tend to lose these gems in my makeup drawer. I bought Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint in Rich Russet a year ago, used it for a few months and forgot about it. Thankfully, my democratized monthly makeup rotation helped me rediscover it and I've been on a mission to use it up. Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paints were probably released last year. Along with Maybelline Color Tattoos it was the next great drugstore product. Among…Read more
Goa Beauty Essentials

Goa Beauty Essentials

It's time for my annual pilgrimage to Goa. Four days of sun, sand, cheap booze and even cheaper petrol! The weather right now is as pleasant as it can get, it's going to be perfect! Every year we go to a different beach and this time we'll be exploring Morjim and Ashwem. Let me know your favourite Goa haunts! I'm excited! This time I thought I'd put up an 'Essentials' post, also a good excuse to discuss travel minis. I pretty much carry a similar amount of things when I travel there (or anywhere else).…Read more
Best of Makeup 2014!

Best of Makeup 2014!

Hope everyone had lovely holidays! I think half my classmates got married just this weekend. I'm a very passive facebook user, logged in after a long time and the wedding photos were overwhelming! It was lovely though. :) Time to get teary eyed about all my favourites this year now! It took a long time to create this post, mainly because I went through my entire collection to pick things out. Ended up with 30 lipsticks that I narrowed down to around 10. Emotional heart-breaking decisions all over the place! I'm also positive that I've missed out…Read more

October 2014 Favourites

Time for the monthly favourites. I've had such a crazy Monday, I just want to talk about makeup! A  bunch of things I've been using for the last 2-3 months and some are more recent favourites. So here goes!   01. Lorac Pro Palette :: So I finally got this a few months back and it's pretty much replaced my UD Naked palette. I love the colours! I've used it for subtle everyday looks, night outs with smokey eyes and shimmery looks. Also used it on Diwali and I have a few weddings…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.

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

August 2014 Favourites

It's that time of the month to share my favourites! I have a few unusual ones here, because I can't really bring myself to fully review a hand wash and a hand sanitizer. Let's get cracking!       01. Eye Cream : Clinique : All About Eyes Rich : Review After my trip in June, my eye area was in serious trouble. It was extremely dry and I thought it might be best to start using an eye cream. Now, this is mainly for hydrating the area. Other concerns like dark circles…Read more
Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner

Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner

Hope you guys are having a great weekend! Here's a product I bought from ASOS a while back, not sure if it's available in India yet but it should be! Rimmel is a really good affordable brand (especially now that all brands are jacking up their prices). The Scandaleyes range has some of the best eye products out there. Here's the Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner in black. It's basically a felt tip liner and the nib is a bit like a highlighter. It can be used in many ways to get the…Read more
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion

Hope you guys are having a great Sunday! I'm up earlier than usual today as I type this out while sipping hot tea. Today's review is of a great affordable lipstick. Rimmel's Moisture Renew range is really good bright colours and are good quality wise as well. Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Passion is a pretty pinky red shade. I'd say it looks a tad bit more pink in the tube but more red on the lips. You can see a comparison pic below, it's a bit more red than YSL Rose…Read more
Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Waterproof Mascara in Black

Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Waterproof Mascara in Black

Gonna start off this post with a bit of a disclaimer about how I like my mascara. Hate, hate, hate clumpy lashes with flaky bits sticking out. It just looks so unnatural and feels uncomfortable. It has to be waterproof or reasonably resistant to water because my eyes water more than usual. And finally, it should be lightweight. We good? Ok, so I don't actually wear mascara on an everyday basis unless I have the extra time to get ready. I generally do when I'm going out. I've been using the Revlon Grow…Read more
