Perfect Brown Girl Blush

Brown girls sometimes have trouble finding the perfect shade of blush. You want something natural, but go too light and it doesn’t show up on your skin, go too dark and it can look obvious and unnatural. Well, I’ve finally found the perfect blush that looks natural on many shades of brown. Just trust me […]

Base Coat

It used to be that you could tell the weekend was ending just by looking at the state of the lovely purple-black polish that coated my nails. A manicure I deem more weekend than weekday, I’d put on the polish on Friday and by Monday it would be half gone. No more. I finally bought […]

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

I recently tried Estee Lauder’s new foundation – Double Wear, stay-in-place powder makeup. Firstly, the colours in this foundation are amazing. I quickly found a match that was a 100% match to my skin (Tawny, in case you’re wondering), swirled a powder brush in the compact and dusted it on. Instantly, my skin was even-toned […]

Review: Benefit Honey Snap Out Of It Scrub

Recently, I was given a sample of Benefit’s Honey Snap Out Of It Scrub. This scrub wasn’t much to look at so I wasn’t sure whether it would be good or not, but I was pleasantly surprised. The scrub is creamy with finely ground pieces of almond in it. Despite the creaminess, however, the scrub […]

For the Love of Lush

Lush is one of those stores that people either love or hate. I love it. I suspect that the people who hate it just havn’t tried the right product, and yes I’m talking to those of you who don’t like strong smells too. I really do believe that there’s something for everyone in that store […]

Aishwarya Beige Lipstick

Another cross-post. When I was in England, L’Oreal had brought out lipsticks in the signature colours of all their spokespersons. This included lipcolours that had been worn by Penelope Cruz, Milla Jovovich, and of course Aishwarya Rai. They didn’t introduce the colours as a limited-edition product – they were available all year round. Funnily enough, […]

Makeover Madness

This was originally posted on my other blog, but it’s relevant so I thought I’d post it here too. Recently, a blogger wrote that it’s an unspoken rule to at least purchase three products when you get a makeover. I hadn’t been aware of this and was pretty surprised to find it out. I can […]

Face Care Tips

Recently I’ve run into a few people with pretty serious looking acne. What made me write this post was that none of these people were going through puberty – in fact they were all in their 20’s, a time when your face care regimen should be established to take care of anything from dry skin […]
