In case you are wondering, what’s with the “update”, you may want to refer to this article. Anyhow, the skinny is that my shopping experience with Indian Roots has been a far cry from perfect; in fact, I have never had such a poor experience with an online shopping channel and as did many of you. I did realize that Indian Roots was a very new business and from what I reckon, these past few months have been a… Read more »

I just wanted to do a quick FOTD with mini reviews of my newest acquisitions and obsessions, which are all things pink. I’m sure you have read about these products before, so nothing groundbreaking or novel here, but of course, my two cents… First up is MAC Twig, which would possibly be one of the most universally wearable lipstick in MAC’s inventory. It is one lipstick I’d recommend without any hesitations to makeup newbies or oldbies alike. It is a satin… Read more »

If you are a person of Indian origin, Indian living abroad or an Indophile, in general, you most likely miss shopping for “Indian” things (clothing, furnishing, you name it). Well, speaking for myself, I love shopping in India and whenever I go to visit, I end up with ridiculously heavy suitcases. I don’t normally wear Indian clothing – I haven’t ever worn a sari and have only a single salwaar kameez. As I don’t have many Indian friends except those… Read more »
LUSH Carrot Soap – $6.95 Though its name has carrot, this smells nothing like carrot, but rather a mellow yet perky citrus based luxurious mix. The bunny inside is made of generous shea butter. In the past, I have had a love-hate relationship with LUSH’s soap – love them for their gentleness and don’t love with for the lack of lather. This one, however, is so different; it lathers perfectly, has a beautiful, complex fragrance and is super moisturizing. My… Read more »

At this point in my beauty blogging career, I have come to a point where I sound like “a pink lipstick is a pink lipstick and what else can I say?” Well, I can say more! This is something I picked out by an accident and can I say serendipity?
Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder in 004 Sunset – $56 CAN Seriously, what’s with these mouthfuls of names? Is it the new trend among high end cosmetics to add in at least five more words in a name? I mean it is more a description than a name. And at this point, I must digress! So here it is, me and my new favourite bronzer, which I took about two years to discover; for shame! I think… Read more »
Guerlain Khȏl Me Kajal – $42 CAN I absolutely love Guerlain’s approach to the more “exotic” cosmetics – they do these so, so well. At first, I was a fangirl of Guerlain Terracotta Loose Powder Kohl Liner and now I have another favourite to add to my list. Super pigmented, creamy, easily gliding with über cool packaging.
