February 2015 Favourites

February 2015 Favourites

My idea of getting through the work midweek is making plans for the weekend! It's all decided, I'm going to be cooped up in my room watching the rest of House of Cards. All I want is Robin Wright's wardrobe! Meanwhile, you can take a peek at what I've been loving the past month. This is going to be a long favourites post! I think it's the first one for 2015. Let's just jump in!   01. Guerlain Gloss D'enfer Maxi Shine Lip Gloss in Candy Strip :: I haven't reviewed this gloss yet…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
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

I've had this palette for a good six months now so I thought I'd review it. I was initially very sceptical about how the cool toned colours would look on me but I guess it can work if you balance it out with darker shades. For me, it also depends on the outfit and the kind of jewelry I'm wearing. Gold? Nope, won't be using this. Silver, rose gold? Yes! Anyway, moving on, the palette itself like the other Urban Decay palettes is great quality wise. There are a few shades that aren't…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
Urban Decay Woodstock Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Woodstock Eyeshadow

Urban Decay wins when it comes to eyeshadows! I managed to get my hands on this gorgeous and alarming pink eyeshadow. Urban Decay Woodstock is a pearly fuchsia eyeshadow. It's also described as a deep pink shimmer. It has pink and silver shimmer. How amazing is the colour though? I can keep staring at it for hours! The quality is great, on par with rest of the pearl finish UD eyeshadows. It's very smooth and buttery to touch. It's also very pigmented and the payoff is good as well. I like that even…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

Just Swatches : Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks

Just Swatches : Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks

This is a different type of post (for this blog). I recently got a Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick and a set of samples. It'll take more time to review it but I couldn't wait to share the swatches! Plus I can probably use the sample size ones only 3-4 times more. The Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks are the newest formula of hydrating and pigmented lipstick. I agree! I love Venom! It's just a gorgeous berry tone and a perfect colour for fall. ^_^ I have 5 shades to show here - Anarchy, Venom,…Read more
Urban Decay Buck Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Buck Eyeshadow

If I had a list of holy grail products, a list of makeup when you're stuck on an island or the if-i-were-to-pick-only-one-eyeshadow list, this product would feature in all of them. After that lengthy and dramatic introduction, this eye shadow is Urban Decay's Buck. This one is also present in the Naked palette which is how I first encountered it. It's a medium brown colour which has a neutral undertone I'd say. You can also see a bit of taupe in it. Either way, I loved this colour so much that I bought…Read more
