Hello gorgeous women! If you are reading this in the month of March 2017 then you are probably one of the few followers of my blog who have decided to stay on and wait for me to get out of my blogging hiatus. I have been really out of action these past few months and if you have stuck around then you have my heartfelt gratitude :)

Top 5 Matte Lipsticks for Medium Skintone

Top 5 Matte Lipsticks for Medium Skintone
Hey guys! Its been like forever since I posted anything here and truth be told I have been kind of losing interest in anything makeup related. So much so that I have even stopped wearing makeup on a regular basis. Its just an eyebrow pencil, a little highlight on my nose and a liquid liner and I am kinda good to go... I am not sure what's really going on, it could just be a phase, I sure do hope that it is *crosses fingers*...

Anyways, I have however started a new travel blog of sorts. Its called My Infinite Wanderlust and I have been giving it a lot of my time and that could be one reason I have had no energy left to put here... But now that I am writing a post today I feel like I have truly missed writing about makeup and beauty and this may just be the impetus that I need to get my ass right back to being a part-time beauty blogger :)

My Envy Box - January 2017

My Envy Box - January 2017
This post is past long due... I thought of skipping writing about this month's My Envy Box but the Jan 2017 box is so fabulous that I felt like I would be cheating if I did not share it with you all... This statement alone should be enough to tell you all that I downright LOVED the My Envy Box January 2017 edition ^_^

REVIEW: Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect Mascara

Review of Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect Mascara
I am sitting in my living room right now, nibbling on a slice of banana bread, while the pati is enjoying the antics of Charlie from Two and a Half Men that's playing on TV... The past few months has been so hectic for me with all the traveling and stuff that quiet evenings at home like these is something I have been living for lately :)
Don't get me wrong, traveling is great but just sometimes I crave going back to warm and cozy times at home... It's like using makeup products from high-end brands one after another and then just for a change you go back to using your trusted drugstore brand and realise how much you missed it...
That's exactly what happened with me when I switched back to a Maybelline mascara...

10 more days to go and we will be bidding adieu to 2016... It's been an interesting year alright, professionally, personally and blog wise... 2016 is the year I actually grew up mentally and emotionally... It has been the year of finding myself, doing stupid things and learning things first hand, gaining confidence and getting a perspective about what my priorities are in life... Needless to say 2016 gave me my life's maximum number of ups and downs till date and also is leaving me with a feeling that things are not gonna slow down in the near future...
I am kinda bracing myself but at the same time I am pretty excited :)

My Makeup Mistakes I Blame On Instagram

My Makeup Mistakes I Blame On Instagram
Instagram is addictive. Anyone who has an account on Instagram will vouch for it... There's something about scrolling through gorgeous pictures of people, sunsets, pets and even food... And if that wasn't enough then throw in uber cute videos of Pandas, pictures of flowers in Sepia and images of beautiful makeup products in high Contrast and Saturation settings... However, being the makeup enthusiast that I am, I generally tend to observe more of how one's brows are on fleek, the Orange eyeshadow is super warm and matte (Kathleen Lights?) and how my favourite YouTuber's highlighter evokes a loud Yaaaaaassss (Jaclyn Hill anyone?)...
Consciously or subconsciously, I end up aping similar makeup techniques that reflect beautifully on my Instagram account but in real life may not be as practical or even look as good...
I decided to document a list of such "mistakes" I make almost on a regular basis and then let's all ex…

My Envy Box - November 2016

My Envy Box - November 2016
Since the past month or so I have been noticing my hair and skin losing their vitality and lustre. My skin's been behaving weirdly such that I have started noticing pigmentation, patchiness and not at all even. Additionally, I did an experiment with my a new hair product and it boomeranged (details in the next post) and as a result I was left with super damaged, brittle looking hair that I had to cut short. Anyways, due to all the issues with my skin and hair I was thinking about going back to the basics and turn towards natural products...

REVIEW: Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in GR125 and BE728
It had been a while since I had actually been blown away by a makeup product. Don't get me wrong, the market is brimming with some really good products that are not only great at what they do but are also very easily available... However, they are all becoming jaded and repetitive... I get the feeling that a brand comes up with something new and almost immediately all brands copy it and come up with similar versions of their own :/
I have been almost bored out of my wits with makeup in the market nowadays...
