Luxury Cosmetics in India!

The hotel that I’m staying at right now has Molton Brown amenities! I don’t even know if you can buy that brand in India, but I do know that this hotel mostly has guests from abroad and I know they’ll be familiar with Molton Brown, a highend bath product company from London, England. The twist […]

Department Store vs. Drugstore

This is a picture of a Marcelle compact which was a limited edition that came out for Christmas. Unfortunately, Marcelle’s website doesn’t have a picture of it so this is one I’ve taken myself. I bought this compact as a gift for one of my cousins in India – the colours of the eyeshadow are […]

Note to Self

Part 1: Don’t use conditioner when its first ingredient is mineral oil. This conditioner left my hair greasy and lifeless and I had to wait until the day was up to be able to wash it out of my hair. Part 2: Don’t assume that whatever amenities the hotel provides will be good enough to […]

They Call it Potion Because It’s Magical

I first tried Urban Decay’s Primer Potion (eye shadow primer) when I was at the airport. I figured that if it could hold up for an 8 hour flight, then it would be good for everyday too. Well it didn’t let me down. I had often suffered from creasing eye shadow, especially on long days, […]

Concealer

This weekend, Arpan and I talked about putting concealer under our eyes. We both agreed that on darker skin tones, using a lighter shade of concealer isn’t always a great idea since that’s now how the area under our eyes is naturally. Naturally, on brown skins, that area is the same colours as the rest […]

Where to Buy: Cle de Peau

Cle de Peau Concealer ends up on every “best” list. Some say that it’s their holy grail of concealers and MUA members love it as well. My problem is that the concealer only comes in 3 colours, all of them quite light, so the line isn’t really made for minorities or darker skin tones. Still, […]

Do It Yourself

It’s not just that I didn’t feel that pure black nail polish was the best colour for my skin tone. It’s also the fact that I didn’t want to be wearing the exact same shade that everyone else was – BLACK. I couldn’t find a colour that was different so I decided to make it […]

Foundation Trick

A little while ago, I had a tv appearance and had my makeup done by a makeup artist hired by the studio. Now, I don’t know her name but she had worked on movies and tv shows before, but she was still relatively young. The studio where the TV show was being shot preferred the […]

MAC Blot Powder

A simple review really: Mac Blot Powder works. It lasts for about two hours and immediately takes the shine from your skin. And don’t stress about the colour either, since they have practically no colour to them. I’m a medium-dark but I know that I could go lighter or darker with almost no difference. Try […]
