Maybelline theColossal Liner | Review

Maybelline The Collosal Liner

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.

Caudalie Masks | Review

Caudalie Intense Detox Mask, Caudalie Moisturizing Mask

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

YSL La Laque Couture (35) Bronzer Pyrite

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. 

YSL La Laque Couture (35) Bronzer Pyrite

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 shade is really pretty. Another good thing about the nail polish is, that it lasts 4-5 days with no chipping.

Which is your favourite YSL nail polish?

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation | Review



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?

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick| Review & Swatches

MAC Lustre Lipstick in See Sheer | Review & Swatch

MAC Lustre Lipstick in See Sheer

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

 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.

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!

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.
