The Peach Lip Edit

The Peach Lip Edit

So a while back, last winter, I had my sheer red lipstick phase. That's done with now. Time for peach! This is a tricky colour because if it's too light it doesn't look good on me, if it's too pink it ends up looking too coral. The best way that I've found for me to pull off peach is when it's sheer! For more opaque shades though, using a lip liner makes it more wearable. Here are my picks for peach lipsticks (and one lip gloss) that I've been loving this summer!   Time…Read more
YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique

YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique

Hope you are all having a glorious weekend! Let's talk about an absolute winner of a lip product! YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in Corail Aquatique is a staining lip gloss in a medium peach shade with a bit of silver shimmer. I caved and bought this pretty late but I'm so glad I picked this colour. From the plethora of shades available, I feel it's the most unique! For me it's a lot like Chanel Liberte in a gloss! My love for peach lipsticks that actually suit me is new and growing. Corail Aquatique is…Read more
YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey

YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey

When it comes to concealer, I've rarely strayed from the my power duo (Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach and Mac Moisture Select in NW35). Curiosity and hype got the better of me when I purchased this. YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch in Luminous Honey (5) is a concealer/brightener/highlighter all wrapped up in a pen. I'm going to specifically talk about using this as a concealer. The shade is a little more orange than my skin tone but I figured that would help with colour correction. The other shades were too pink or way off for…Read more

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

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

Haul : Japan and Hong Kong Airport

There's a bit of guilt over this haul but I'm trying to push that aside as I write this! So, last month I went on a trip to Japan and China. I did a bit of shopping at Hong Kong airport and more drugstore shopping in Japan. Shiseido has multiple brands under the umbrella and I really wanted to buy them there. A bit of a note about where I shopped in Japan if you're interested. I was at Fort Venus ( in Odaiba) which was next to my hotel. I discovered they…Read more

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
YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Ultimate Beige

YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Ultimate Beige

I have a new holy grail nude!! I feel like I've been on a lipstick craze lately and it needs to stop! It all started with this YSL lipstick and umm... kind of spiralled out of control there onwards! So today I'm reviewing the YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in the shade Ultimate Beige or no. 3. It's also sometimes called 'Silky Sensual Radiant'. But anyway, Rouge Volupte is the range of creamy, very pigmented lipsticks. Ultimate Beige is a really pretty pinky brown colour. It looks more peachy brown when you swatch it…Read more
