L'oreal Telescopic Clean Definition Mascara: Review

 If there was one piece of makeup that I could pick and live with for the rest of my life, I think it would be mascara. Without mascara my eyelashes feel naked, somehow. That is a really weird thing to say but it’s true. I hate getting out without mascara. And as much as I am a fan of the clean, natural look, I don’t mind my mascara to be a little more than natural looking. I like dramatic lashes.

Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle: Review

 When the Revlon Lip Butters launched in India, I was beyond excited. With all of the hype in the blogging and YouTube world, I was finally going to be able to give this product a try myself. I originally wanted to try the Tutti Frutti shade, but it seems to be sold out everywhere. So I settled for Pink Truffle which looked like a nice pinky everyday shade.

This Week: Colorbar Nail Polish in 42 Exclusive

 Okay. So I honestly don't know why some of the Colorbar nail polishes have proper names and some have this 'exclusive' with a number. Is there something I should be knowing about here? I'm not sure.
 But anyway, with the winters here I was on the lookout for a really nice nude nail polish, because, believe it or not, I don't own a single nude polish. So when I saw that Colorbar had a nice range of nude-y colours, I went ahead and got this one.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze: Review

 I don't think I have tried cream eyeshadow ever before and the concept of it always excited me. I always thought about the perfect shade of cream eyeshadow that I could just sweep across my lid and not care about anything else. And then the Maybelline Color Tattoos came along. I am so glad I bought this product.

Colorbar Instant Coverup Stick Concealer: Review

 Concealer is something that once I got into using, it's become the one thing I can't leave home without. I had heard a lot of good things about the Colorbar Instant Coverup Stick Concealer. So I didn't hesitate to buy it. Yes, I was a little confused between this and their cream concealer. But I finally got this one and have been using it for more than two  months, so I can now tell you what I think about it.

Damn you, chapped lips!

 I love winters so much. I really do. It's my favourite season of all time. I love the feel of the cold breeze against my skin. I love burying my cold fingers deep in the pockets of my jacket. I love how everyone's so much calmer. I love how everything's so much more serene.
 What I don't like so much?
 Chapped lips. But then what are lip balms for?

What's in my Travel Makeup Bag?

 It's almost the end of the vacations and I'm going on a small holiday outing with a bunch of my family. It's just a three day affair, so I'm not packing too much. So as I was packing my makeup, I thought- hey! Why not do a 'what's in my travel makeup bag' post? So here it is!
 Pardon me if the pictures aren't too great. I took them really quickly. It's 2 a.m. and I leave in three hours. This is what I call commitment, folks.

Faces 5 Lip Colour Palette: Review


 I have been secretly wanting a lipstick palette from a long, long time. And on my birthday this year (which was recently) when my best friend gave me the Faces Lip Set, I was super excited. This 5 colour lip palette is part of the set, which includes a bunch of different lip products.
 This palette contains five shades of lip colour, both neutral and bold. So would this be the perfect lipstick palette?

Estee Lauder Blush in Potpourri: Review

 I always wanted to try a peach toned blush, because I've always been a pink blush girl. So when a friend gave me this, I was super excited to try it out. And I absolutely love it!
 On the pan itself, it looks like an earthy, peachy colour. But when fully blended, as you can see below, it turns into a beautiful pinky peach. I wouldn't say it's the most pigmented blush. It gives sort of a light, natural finish. It has absolutely no shimmer, which I like because it annoys me how most blushes I like turn out to be shimmery and a little difficult to wear on an everyday basis.

My Everyday Makeup

  I like to keep my makeup light and easy. I go to college so it's not like I have much time to pile on too much or like I could get away with wearing too much makeup anyway. But I've really become a fan of natural looking makeup. This is pretty much all I use on an everyday basis. And I love the end result!

The High-Low Skirt

  This post is long overdue. It's one that I had forgotten to publish. I wasn't sure if I wanted to put this up now, since I'm really late and high-low skirts are well established now. But I really love this style of skirts and some of the outfits I created for this, so I thought I'll put this up anyway. Better late than never, right?

Accessory Haul: Inexpensive, Awesome things

  I love accessories and I can hoard them like nothing else. I believe you can never have too many accessories. Trends change, seasons change, and there's always something new to go crazy about. So every once in a while I want to go buy something new. Here's a bunch of things I bought on my last visit to my favourite place for inexpensive jewellery, Colaba Causeway.
