Love Lettuce was the fresh Lush Fresh Face Mask I ever tried and what can I say? I am hooked ever since. I have tried nearly all of Lush’s Fresh Face Masks and my first pick is also one of the best masks in the range. It is also one of the stronger exfoliating masks I have tried, Lush or not. The exfoliating beads in it are definitely larger than the run off the mill exfoliating mask. I kind of… Read more »

I own three other fluidlines besides Ivy, and must say, despite having a certain Blacktrack in my stash, I have found an unbeatable new favorite. Ivy is not perfect, I must say, but despite a few minor flaws, it is still gorgeous. Ivy is a happy, bright green that looks stunning against my brown eyes. I don’t feel compelled to wear eyeshadow or even mascara with it, because the color steals the limelight on its own. It is such a… Read more »
The matchy-matchy lipstick/blush combo was to be blamed. I totally loathe her make-up, she looks like a vamp from saas-bahu. The otherwise lovely Sonakshi Sinha gets it wrong. Majorly.
Gulabi means rosey in Hindi and the lipstick lives up to that name. It is a hot pink rose in a tube and on your lips. It is an amplified cream lipstick, which means it is high on shine and comfort. It is such a hydrating lipstick and amplified cream has become my favorite lipstick finish from MAC. If you don’t have a great fuchsia lipstick, then this is a must! Yash means success in Hindi. It is a peachy-nude lipstick… Read more »
Milly is the newest addition to what I call family. She is a gorgeous Japanese Chin and Bichon/Shih-tzu mix. She is the most loveable hell raiser you’ll know!

Athma means soul in Hindi. My soul food is yoga, I feel so content when I am consistently practicing yoga. Therefore, my athma needs yoga, but it also needs make-up, you know! Especially when it is MAC, limited edition and created by someone who is a rockstar according to me – yes, that’s right Mickey Contractor! That is one hard to resist combination for me, so yes, I went a bit crazy with this collection. This quad consists of two… Read more »
Let’s kick off the Mickey Contractor madness with the Gana blush, shall we? Gana in Hindi (which is my mother tongue :P) means song and yes, this blush totally deserves a song of its own. It is described as a “bright white gold” and when I saw the very first swatches of this blush, I thought to myself, how can any Indian skin-tone wear this thing as a blush? Boy was I wrong! It looks so gorgeous on cheeks and… Read more »
What I got from Mickey Contractor Collection – sadly they were out of the Mehr Lipstick I ordered, as well. So in short, I missed out on Siahi fluidline, Sur Blush, Color corrector and Mehr lipstick But…I got the rest and I can tell you its bloody awesome from what I have tested so far! I love you Mickey Contractor!
NARS blushers are definitely one of my favorite kinds. Yes, yes NARS Orgasm is a cult favorite, but I find rest of the colors no less flattering. I honestly feel there are other gems in the line which are overlooked because of one hyped up blush (don’t get me wrong, it deserves all the hype, but it takes away from the rest of amazing colors). Needless to say, the quality of the blush is amazing. The pigmentation, color pay off… Read more »
