So I have gained five pounds. The dreaded five pounds that came from my beloved malai koftas and daal makhani. Delhi, how I can love you and hate you for the same things? Anyways, so I totally Iris, I was thinner because of this gorgeous purple nail-polish, too! That’s Sephora by OPI’s nail-color in Iris, I was thinner. It totally reminds me of the candy gems, I used to eat as a kid or smarties, that’s available in North America…. Read more »

I absolutely adore Katrina’s make-up on the cover of Harper’s this month. A classic girly pink look never goes out of style, does it? To get her look, try the following products. Eyes Using your favorite neutral palette, create a warm smokey eyes. I recommend Dior 5-Color Designer All-in-one Artistry Palette in Amber Design. Line the top, bottom and waterline with a kohl like MAC Smolder eye-liner. Finish off with two coats of mascara. Lips A creamy pinky-plum lipstick, like… Read more »

If you have been reading my blog, you’ll know that I have a MAC blush obsession. I absolutely love them and must have a new one every week =P. So this time it was MAC Style Blush, which is a coral-peach with gold pearl in a frost finish. I LOVE this color. Its so freaking gorgeous on my skin-tone and will look great with anyone with olive/peachy undertones. It is however, only a good color for spring and summer –… Read more »

Pigment noob alert! Until a few months ago, I had no idea what pigments were used for. So a lovely MAC MUA told me – “a pigment is an intensified eyeshadow”! I bought one and can say is I am a changed woman . I picked one up for trial and I am completely hooked! It does help that it is a gorgeous shade of gold, MAC Old Gold Pigment to be precise. In MAC’s own words, a pigment is… Read more »

There was a tonne of hoopla in the blogosphere about these blushes when they first launched a few months ago. I was curious (as I always am about anything make-up), but not enough to line up when these first launched. Anyways, so I finally got these only to review them for you guys (i.e., anyone who is willing to take my word for it). I have used these blushes for a good month or so and I finally thought its… Read more »

Shade description: Medium dirty rose coral (sheertone) swatch time! Comments: MAC Pinch me is one of the more interesting blushes I own. It is quite a unique color, which is not quite coral and not quite rose, but something very well in between. It is highly pigmented and shows up quite loudly on skin. It is not a blush which is suitable for day, but for night time, it is quite a gorgeous color.  This is something that will, however,… Read more »

While waiting to board my flight at the revamped Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport, I was tempted. Tempted by the gorgeous dresses in the Kimaya Boutique, tempted by the yummy and extremely fattening drinks at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, tempted by the cosmetics. I was being pulled in three different directions. The problem was, I don’t have a credit card! Yes, I can tie my own shoe-laces, drive a car, have a bachelors degree, but I still don’t… Read more »

In Benefit’s own words, This delectable peach powder radiates sunshine, warming your complexion and leaving your skin looking as smooth and soft as a Georgia Peach. Southern charm never looked so sweet. Comes with a peachy keen brush too! When I bought it, I thought it was a blush and boy was I wrong! It is too sheer to be a blush, even on the fairest girls. It hardly showed up on me as a blush and I squealed, “damn,… Read more »

Ingredients I am in the process of growing out my hair. Well, I have been since the past one and a half years. I had one of those pixie cuts almost two years ago and within one week of doing so, I realized what I did! That’s right I cut off all my gorgeous long hair! I had no idea where to go from there, so after many months of looking like a hair disaster, I finally reached a respectable… Read more »

I was going through the wedding album of my parents and saw pictures of my mom on her wedding day. She looked so beautiful! As most North Indian Brides do, she wore bright red lips and gold/maroon eyes with lots of high-lighting on her face. I tried to recreate her look in a more up-to date, modern way. I haven’t yet received permission from my mom to use her pictures on my blog, so I won’t post her pics here!… Read more »

  MAC Peaches Blush is one blush that all Indian beauty addicts unanimously love, myself included! I first saw this blush at Cynthia’s blog (Indian Vanity Case) and instantly fell in love. After buying this, I am absolutely smitten  and secretly thank her every time for introducing me to my new HG blush. on NC 40 skin with flash on NC 40 skin without flash Color description: Pure Peach (Sheertone) Comments: If you are looking for a gorgeous everyday coral… Read more »
