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

Colorbar Feel The Rain Xposed Lip Color Duo 01 Cloudburst

Colorbar Feel The Rain Xposed Lipcolor Duo 01 CloudBurst – Review, Swatches

Hi everyone! Monsoons are full on and my city is receiving a fair share of downpours. I am not too fond of rains unless accompanied by thunderstorms. 😛 Nevertheless the environment is greener and the breeze feels fresher irrespective of being laden with humidity.

I feel even better to find brands launching rain-themed cosmetics, the most prominent of which this season is Colorbar Feel The Rain collection. 🙂 It is a limited edition launch with lip colors and nail paints. Despite the decent versatility of the collection, I took my pick from the four Xposed Lip Color Duos. These are dual ended lip products with lipstick at one end and gloss on the other. I chose the shade 01 Cloudburst (love the name! 😀 ).

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection James Kaliardos

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection James Kaliardos – Review, Swatches

Hey everyone! I’m not yet done with the amazing MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection for the Spring/Summer 2017. 🙂 Today I have two beautiful lip colors created by makeup wizard James Kaliardos in collaboration with MAC. Each of the three makeup maestros has reflected their signature styles with their respective creations. While Diane had convenient and compact products with vibrant and colorful vibes, James’ creation has more jewel tones to perk up some everyday-wear colors. 🙂 His magic weaves its way through to make our regular colors look distinctive and unique. I have the Almondine lipstick in Lustre finish, and the very unique Tricolor Lip gloss in Stratagloss Pyrite.

MAC Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson Lipglass

MAC Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson Lipglass – Review & Swatches

Hello everyone! Just as we are making peace with the overwhelming Women’s Day wishes, I thought to share my review of the new MAC Viva Glam launch. 🙂 This time it’s Taraji P. Henson, the incredible lady we all remember from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Karate Kid. In both she played a mother and touched our hearts. Although people love her in Empire now, I haven’t personally watched this show. But I believe she must be good in that as well. Anyways, coming back to MAC (pun accidental 😛 ), her Viva Glam range has a lipstick and a lipglass.

I picked up only the lipglass because :

  1. I have quite a few fuschia toned lipsticks in my stash at the moment, and don’t really need to add another,
  2. I have never tried MAC lipglasses as I’m not quite a gloss girl,
  3. The pretty sparkly color of the lipglass (fuschia is my weakness),
  4. The packaging of course 😉

My Envy Box January 2017

My Envy Box January 2017 – Review

Hello everybody! There’s a rise of beauty subscription boxes in India these days. With their unique concept of letting users try new launches in the market, these boxes are gradually picking up momentum. I heard a lot about them too, and after a bit of research, happened to subscribe with My Envy Box. Reasons being :

  • they rarely give full size skincare products. I prefer trying skincare samples before investing on full sized ones, as I have a sensitive skin ;
  • they claim to give beauty samples from “luxury and prestige beauty brands”, and let’s be honest, this sounds good. 😉

My Envy Box “Happy New Year” Edition – Contents :

I received my first Envy Box within a week of subscribing with them. Five products – four full size, and a sample – came packaged in a black cardboard magnetic box. Read more
