Chanel Illusion D'ombre Mirage

Image
Chanel Illusion D'ombre eyeshadow in Mirage has been an absolute favourite for more than a year now! It was a part of summer 2014 collection and it's permanent. Illusion D'ombre comes in a heavy glass jar with a black lid  and is priced at INR. 2500 (correct me if I am wrong).

MY ENVY BOX OCTOBER 2015 | 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Image
I was never excited about monthly subscription boxes only because I never found anything exciting. But my thoughts changed when I saw a little sneak peek of My Envy Box - 2 Year Anniversary Edition , it had some really good luxury brands in it. The box is priced at Rs. 850. 

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo[+]

Image
La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo [+] is one product that everyone seems to be raving about. I have been using this for quite some time now and I thought of sharing my thoughts on it. 

Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson Matte Revolution Lipstick in 1975Red

Image
I love Charlotte Tilbury and I love an orange-red lipstick. So when I came across Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson collaboration had a Matte Revolution  range in the shade 1975 Red I knew I wanted it.

Maybelline theColossal Liner | Review

Image
I am not a liquid eyeliner person, because I am a clumsy person who messes up the liner each time I try. Having said that I was intrigued by the Maybelline Colossal Liner. Priced at Rs. 425 and available across all maybelline counters and online websites.

Avène Thermal Spring Water | Review

Image
There are few skincare products which can never get replaced, one such gem is Avène Thermal Spring Water. I can never live without this! It comes in 2 variants 50 ml (Rs. 550) and 150ml (Rs. 1090) and available online on nykaa.

Caudalie Masks | Review

Image
It's no secret that I love face masques! I feel they instantly make a difference to the skin, so when I spotted Caudalie's newest release on CultBeauty I knew I'd need them. 
Caudalie has launched four facial masks : Glycolic Peel Mask, Instant Detox Mask, Purifying Mask & Moisturizing Mask all priced at £22 for 75ml. I haven't really tried anything from the brand but I was always intrigued by the brand because Sunny recommends it highly. Now the 2 masks that I picked were - Instant Detox and Moisturizing.

YSL La Laque Couture (35) Bronzer Pyrite | Review & Swatches

Image
After loving my first YSL La Laque Couture in Beige Gallery, I couldn't resist myself from picking up another shade from the brand. The shade I picked is Bronze Pyrite 35 which is a metallic shade. These are available online and are priced at $25.  The packaging of all YSL products are hands down the most luxurious. It comes in a square bottle with a gold cap that had YSL etched on it. Apart from the fancy packaging, what really impressed me is the application. The brush is flat and wide which makes the application really easy. Just one swipe is enough to cover the entire nail! The consistency of Bronze Pyrite is slightly thick, so it's best to give it some time to dry before going on with the second coat. Bronze Pyrite is pigmented enough to provide a full coverage in one swipe but with 2 coats it's just PERFECT. 

Bronze Pyrite 35 is a gorgeous metallic bronze that looks fabulous and suits my Indian skin tones. Honestly I am not a metallic nail polish person, but this sha…

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in 426 Roussy | Review & Swatches

Image
The newChanel Rouge Coco lipsticks comes in 29 shades, all named after someone close to Mademoiselle Chanel. The shades that piqued my interests were Roussy and coco, but I ended up picking just Roussy.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation | Review

Image
When it comes to foundation I don't mind splurging at all. After reading a countless reviews on Chanel Vitalumiére Aqua, I was a bit confused on how it would suit my oily/combination skin. But then decided to just buy it because who doesn't like dewy , naturally glowing skin right?

Hello Everyone!😊 It's been really long since I blogged, as a lot of things kept me occupied over the past few months. And now that I'm back, I hope I can be a bit more regular and keep the blog alive.

Omorovicza Copper Peel | Holy Grail At-Home Peel

Image
Having less than perfect skin, my visits to dermatologists were very often. I was introduced to the idea of chemical peels and it was instant love. So when I came Omorovicza Copper Peel on CultBeauty  I knew I had to try it. It's priced at £48.

Clinique Pop Lip Colour & Primer - Cherry Pop | Classic Red

Did I say its hard to resist Clinique Pop Lip Colour & Primer? After absolutely loving Sweet Pop, I was tempted to try something in red (not that I don't have enough red's already) so its Cherry Pop (08).

Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate | Review

Image
If I end up with any skincare concern I reach out to Kiehl's. So when I was on a lookout for a serum, the SA recommended me to try out Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate. I have been using this serum for about 3 months now and here is what I think of the product.

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick| Review & Swatches

Image
Another MAC review in the same week! I think MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick was launched about 2 months back in India and is a limited edition. I won this lipstick in a Giveaway by Shalini from Bebeautilicious. This lipstick is priced at Rs. 1450 and you may still find it in MAC counters (They had 2-3 pieces in 1MG mall Bangalore).

MAC Lustre Lipstick in See Sheer | Review & Swatch

Image
Its been a while since I bought a MAC lipstick, and that is because I have way too many lipsticks. This time I really wanted to buy a lipstick that was not too bright, not too light that it would wash me out but something sheer with a pop of color that I could wear on a daily basis. The shade I picked is See Sheer.

Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash | REVIEW

Image
After trying Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel and Pai Skincare Camellia Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser I had stayed away from foaming cleanserss. The only reason I decided to try Origins Checks and Balance Frothy Face Wash was because of Ingrid Nilsen. Anything that she recommends goes straight up my wish-list and they suit me 99% of the time. The cleanser is priced at $21.50 and available here.

Holy Grail Product | Diorskin Star Foundation

Image
You've heard it all before about Dior Star Foundation, one of the best foundations launched in 2014.  I had read so many RAVE reviews that I had to have it in my life. I got my hands on this one around 3-4 months back and have been using it regularly and I have to admit that its absolutely lovely!

Image
Hello Everyone!

Its been a while since I wrote a  post, and that's because I have zero concentration of late. No matter how hard I try to concentrate on something, I fail. But now I am trying to focus on things that make me happy (blogging does!) and hopefully will write more often than before. 
I have purchased a few skincare and makeup stuff lately that I have been trying, so here's a post on whats new in my stash!

30 Days of #HappyHairChallenge with Garnier Fructis | Final Result

Image
Happy Sunday everyone! 
I am a very lazy person, so my hair doesn't get the attention it deserves. A month back Garnier India offered me to take their  #HappyHairChallenge using the Strengthening Range.  I have shared my first impression - Here
I have used the Strengthening Range for 30 days and here's what I feel. I wash my hair 2-3 times a week depending on how dirty my hair gets.

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner- #HappyHairChallenge

Image
Oh hello everyone! Hope you all are having a great hair day err I mean a great day. 
Me and my hair have a love-hate relationship. Someday it behaves really well and for the other days it will need special attention or may be a high bun will do. When Garnier Fructis asked me to take a 30 days challenge with their newest launch - Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner, I readily accepted.

I'm not the one who gets excited about Valentine's Day but Maybelline InstaGLAM Valentine's Gift Kit is something that made me happy. May be it's the glittery pink pouch!

Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser Kashmiri Saffron and Neem |Review

Image
Anything that says natural skincare gets all my attention. Few years back even before the blogging thing happened I tried the Kashmiri Saffron and Neem Delicalte Facial Cleanser by the brand Forest Essentials and was literally in love with it and must have purchased around 5 bottles.  But in between I got into trying different brands and this was kind of ignored and did not feature on my blog till date.
