REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Matte Lip Pen - She's So Matte!

Review of L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Matte Lip Pen in She's So Matte! As far as I am concerned there are 2 kinds of Indian skintones, the ones that suit MAC Cosmo (and Mehr) and the ones that don't. I fall into the latter category and because of shades like these I have always believed that pink-ish nudes would never look good on me...
I believe I have also done a post (or two?) on Cosmo and Mehr and how horrendous they look on me.

These shades put me off of nude pinks for years until I chanced upon the L'Oreal Paris Le Matte Lip Pen in She's So Matte a week ago and it changed my life... The shade as you can tell is a gorgeous, matte nude pink and it would look flattering on fair to medium skin tones. I really can't say how it would look on darker skin shades, unfortunately.

I posted a couple of Instagram stories wearing this shade and I have been bombarded with DMs asking about the shade! So that's testimony enough about how b…

Let's Talk About My Obsession with Salwar Kameez

Let's Talk About My Obsession with Salwar Kameez
I am not sure how or when did this obsession start. It could be because of the self-realization of finally wearing the FabIndia kurtas that I have been accumulating over the past years or could be because I ultimately discovered how comfortable and smart fitted and cropped pants look under a long kurta or even may be because I have finally gotten bored of the basic Jeans and Tee look that I sport at work...

Whatever the reasons, I am enjoying this phase to the fullest :)





I currently buy my everyday Kurtas from FabIndia, W for Woman and Aurelia. My cropped and fitted pants are either from W for Woman and Aurelia. Personally, I prefer the pants from "W" better than from Aurelia. Where do you buy yours from? What brands do you suggest?

HAUL: A Tiny One!

A Tiny Haul Post

So I have this cocktail party to attend at the end of this week and I am grappling to figure out what I should wear... I have zeroed onto a black skirt I own that I imagine wearing with an Emerald green silk shirt/top... I say "imagine" because I don't yet own the said shirt and hence on Christmas Day I went shopping looking for it... The way I shop is that I first make up my mind about what I need and then go looking into stores for that particular item. Of course this generally always fails because hey the item exists only in my head and hence I always end up getting things that I don't need and not buy something that I actually need...

That's exactly what happened day before yesterday and I ended up with no clothes but a tiny makeup/skincare haul... Some of these products are new for me and some have been a personal favorite since a while now...

REVIEW: St D'Vence Moisturiser - Autumn Edition

Review of St D'Vence Moisturiser - Autumn Edition (For Dry to Very Dry Skin)
To wear my favorite and the most expensive perfume I own to work or not is a debate I have with myself every morning while I get ready for work. The EDP in question here is the Davidoff Cool Water Sensual Essence, the one that comes in the sensual Golden Brown colored bottle... It is my favorite scent because it not just smells beautiful but also because it smells warm and sensual.

But then the post is not really about the perfume :)
It is about this glorious smelling body moisturiser that eventually ends up winning every single day because it is one of the best smelling bod
St D'Vence Moisturiser, Autumn Edition is a thick body lotion that gets absorbed very easily into the skin. It is non-greasy and very hydrating. It is perfect for dry skin and is great for dry winters.
y I have come across till date. Simply put, the St D'Vence Moisturiser, Autumn Edition smells divine...

Review: Nykaa eyeMBold Kajal

Review of Nykaa eyeMBold Kajal
The day I bought the Nykaa eyeMBold Kajal, I posted a picture of it on my Instagram story and it exploded. I had so many of you all asking me to review the kajal pronto as everyone seemed to have heard mixed views about it. Needless to say I was intrigued; I had no idea that the fat, chubby kajal stick that I had picked up on a whim could create such a furore!


I am going to be brutally honest. Since the time Nykaa started with its own range of makeup and beauty products almost 1.5 years ago, I haven't really had the urge to try its products. And the fact that I was never sent any samples didn't help their case either... And hence when I spied that a brand new Nykaa store had opened up in my neighborhood mall I had to pay a visit...
