Gothic makeup Looks

Festive Look Book: Gothic Inspired Makeup Looks, and some shedding of Fears…

Hi lovely readers,

Hope you’re still reeling in the festive fever. I think I’m too, because just as much I have nothing to do with Halloween, I just had to snatch the opportunity to do this post. I prefer going easy on makeup most times, but in today’s post I have looks that we all should try, at least once in a while! It took me quite some courage to step out of my comfort zone, and create some dark looks with a dose of Gothic. But again, a few of them are subtler versions that you can categorize under fall makeup as well. For a look or two, I put my creative hat on and let Pinterest inspire me. 🙂

I won’t be elaborating a lot on the base, as there’s a lot to talk about the color cosmetics. The base makeup has the Colorbar Perfect Match Primer, L’Oreal True Match Concealer, Maybelline Fit Me foundation and The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion foundation. Also for all the looks I kept my brows really stark and used the darkest shade from the MUA Brow Kit. It is a dark brown that works pretty well for me.

Festive Favorites : My Top Ten Lip Colors this Season

Hi everyone! Wish you all a very happy and blessed Diwali. You must be at your festive best and so must be your homes. 🙂 I’ve been juggling quite a lot between work, home and my blog. I actually did shoots for two posts in a day. Whew! Kinda exhausting, but I enjoy it so much.

Today I will share with you my favorite lippies for this festive season. I have my favorites from bot high-end and drugstore, and lippies with different textures. Since it’s autumn and festive, most of my favorites are richer hues, but I do have a few subtle neutrals as well. Please note that the list is a random order of my favorites, and it is not in any order of preference. 🙂 Read more

Lakme Enrich Lip Crayons - Baby pink, Mauve Magic

Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon Baby Pink, Mauve Magic – Review, Swatches

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great week. 🙂 Over past few years we have seen the increase in production of lip crayons from various brands. There has been Clinique’s Chubby Sticks. And there has been Sugar, that initially launched with just four lip crayons which took the Indian market by storm. Bobbi Brown had her own range of Art Stick pencils, that were further innovated, resulting in the very unique squeezy tubes of Art Stick Liquid Lips. 🙂 Clinique recently went overboard with the crayon trend, and launched the Crayola range of Chubby Sticks in collaboration with Crayola crayons. The resemblance of the two seems so uncanny. But I’m eyeing them nevertheless. 😀

Within all the hype around lip crayons, there emerges our very own Lakme, with its very own range of lip crayons! And at an incredible price of INR 185! Want more? As an introductory offer, Lakme is providing a sharpener with each lip crayon for free! 😀 OMG OMG. These lip colour crayons came as such a surprise and shook the nation’s beauty industry. There is not a single soul out there who is not raving about this launch. Well even I am. 🙂

Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Lipsticks Soft Mauve, Smooth Merlot

Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Lipsticks Soft Mauve, Smooth Merlot – Review, Swatches

Hey everyone! The Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Lipsticks launched a few months back with a unique formulation. I really wanted to try these moisturizing lip colors even when I am an ardent matte lip lover. But we all agree moisturizing lip colors are only so much forgiving on the lips. So I tend to switch over to the creamier formula at times. With the Absolute Argan Oil lipsticks, Lakme has launched quite a versatile range of colors. I picked up the shades  Soft Mauve and Smooth Merlot, both of which I find pretty unique yet wearable. 🙂

Product Description :

It’s time to embrace the all new trend of “liquid gold” with a perfect stroke of Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color.

Infused with actual Moroccan argan oil, this lip color has the ultimate power to nourish your lips along with intense pigmentation. It has a creamy texture that delivers a smooth and silky finish. Available in 15 vibrant shades, the entire palette is suitable for Indian skin tones.

All Things Bright and Green

Monday Moods : All Things Bright And Green

With every step she took,

The wilderness welcomed her in,

Brown soils beneath slipped away

As birds chirped at a distance,

Ripples of a young river rhymed on

As the mountains echoed her footsteps,

And the dawn peeked through…

On she moved as if in a trance,

Intoxicated by lush smell of the woods,

She wanted to be here all her life,

And today inadvertently she knew

There was no stopping her till she had it all,

And she’d walk on and on

And on, till she bled green…


Hi everyone! The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of the color green, is the opulence of nature that exhibits itself in so many forms of the shade. To me, green is safe and green is fresh. It has shades from subtle to vivid. It is cozy and it is startling. Why I decided to do an entire post on “green” today is because I have always found solace in this color, right from childhood. 🙂 Read more
