My perfect red lipstick

Red lipstick look

 

For the longest time, I was the girl who stays far far away from any kindof lipstick. Heck even lip glosses used to irritate me. Back then I could not even imagine that there would be a day when I would be so head over heels in love with red lipstick. Yes red, bright in your face red lipstick, Aah the beauty!

Five Friday Favorites #12

DSC00105-1

I have missed you guys so much and it has been so long I shared my favorites with you all!

So here are my current favorites –

The Body Shop Camomile cleansing butter – this is such a gem of a product! I love it! I have even recommended it to so many of my friends. It cleans skin so perfectly and leaves it feeling soft and hydrated!

MAC retro matte Relentlessly red – my favorite bright lipstick at the moment. It is a perfect mix of red and pink and I love how it brightens up my face. I will definitely do a whole post on this.

Lancome kohl eyeliner – I am such a huge kajal collector! I keep trying new eyeliners every time I see something which promises to last long on my waterline. This one was a very random purchase and it is honestly, one of the best eyeliners I have used on my waterline.

La roche posay effaclar duo – this has been doing an amazing job at keeping my skin balanced and healthy. Highly recommended. This tube is running out fast and me is sad !

Victoria’s Secret xo Victoria rollerball – I was looking for a new fresh scent and did not feel committed enough to buy a full bottle, so I bought a handful of such rollerballs and this one is my current favorite.  It is a gorgeous fresh and vibrant scent, with undertones of roses and even vanilla.

I will try to do individual reviews too and link them here.

What are your current favorites? Do share with me in the comments below!

Happy weekend!

Love you guys,

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Review.

DSC039551

I love face powders 😀 on a daily basis, I only use a little compact on my face for a fresh look. Forget foundations, I hardly even use TMs or BB creams daily 😛

And in the early months of last year, I got so crazy about compacts that I was hoarding them like crazy 😛

I had heard a lotttt about the MAC MSF and really wanted to try it and to be honest, this is one of the most expensive products I own 😛

But is it worth it? Read on to know…

Five Friday Favourites #3

Hey everyone!

DSC0360134

Eid Mubaarak to all of you! 🙂 how are you celebrating Eid? We have very close family friends who are Muslim and throw a huge party for Eid everytime and sadly we couldn’t go this time and aahh.. I’m already missing the chicken biryani 😦

I know I’ve been very inactive of late and so sorry I haven’t been able to reply to all comments. I’ll be even more inactive next week onwards; I have a few posts timed for publishing in my drafts but I didn’t want to miss the Five Friday Favourites and here I am 😀

DSC036012

So, first up is The Body Shop Coconut Hair oil ~ my hair is going through a very bad phase; the rain is making it even frizzier and worse! 😦 this oil is giving my hair all the extra love it needs! Initially I had a lot of samples of this oil but I finally purchased the full bottle last week and I’m loving this oil much more than my normal hair oil!

Revlon lip butter in Sorbet ~ I really really love Revlon lip butters and this new shade is a gorgeous bright pink. It really makes my face look very bright and pretty! Love!

The Body Shop Vanilla body mist ~ I have always had a soft spot for all things vanilla and recently this mist has made a comeback in my favourite scents! I just wish it were travel friendly! Full review here.

MAC Technakohl Graphblack ~ I had this on my wishlist forever as I’d read amazing reviews for its good staying power on the waterline and I’m someone who’s always on the lookout for something that stays long on my waterline. Though my all time favourite for the waterline is the Lakme kohl ultimate but I’m loving this one at the moment!  

Lakme CC Cream ~ this gives a good natural semi-matte finish and reduces redness very well! I’m definitely enjoying using this a lot!

So, that’s it for this week!

I would love to know your favourites so do share them in the comments below! 🙂

See you! Have a great weekend!

TBS & MAC Haul and some rambling!

DSC01184

I hauled, way too early in this month, no? Sigh!

My best friend and I were just hanging out when this haul happened 😛

I’ll come straight to the stuff I bought!

DSC01183

The Body Shop Banana Shampoo & Conditioner. I’m way too addicted to TBS now and I’ve even got my mom and sis addicted! They had sniffed at these beauties last time and were hooked, especially my sis who really likes bananas, I don’t though, but still loved the fragrance of these! And these are more natural than other stuff in the market so finally decided these over L’occitane which is way too expensive 🙂

These were on my wishlist here.

Then we were just randomly checking out MAC when I got the MSF Natural tried on my face and lovveeedddd it 😛 If you follow me on twitter, you must have read last night’s tweet ; I have been seriously obsessed with MSF since some days! And there in the store I couldn’t resist myself! So, I’m finally the very proud owner of MAC Mineralized SkinFinish Natural – Medium. You can’t imagine the feeling now that I have it !!!!!!

DSC01182

I was scared my mom will kill me when I got home, but I first asked her does she notice anything different about my face, and she said it’s looking nice, it’s looking very smooth! And then I told her what I bought and she was like “Acha hai! It’s looking nice, but don’t waste it! ” yessss 😀 No scolding even 😛

So, that’s my entire haul.

And I observed that usually I buy lots of small small stuff which makes me feel super guilty and today I bought some big stuff and both overall would cost same na, so now I’m done with this month’s makeup shopping. Now, will shop only for my college farewell, which is in the last week of April.

What big makeup splurges have you made recently? Loving them or regretting? 😀 Do share in the comments below:)
