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 »
Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Sensual Rose – $33 CAN An exceptionally smooth, long wearing lipstick – yes, I agree, it is exactly what it vouches to be. 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.
I’m not the biggest fan of nude lips – there, I said it! On my skin tone, the ever alluring nude lip is just downright the most impossible thing to master. It also does not help my case that nude lipsticks are never quite tailored for skin-tones like mine. But that does not mean, however, that I give up and stop looking for options and I am more so obligated to check out if a lipstick is on sale in… Read more »
Clarins Multi-Blush Cream Compact (Candy & Rosewood) – $30 CAN Blush lovers are probably having the best (or worst season, depending if you take your wallet into consideration) so far, with so many new amazing launches to splurge on. Clarins’ new Multi-Blush Cream Compacts are definitely something to be taken into consideration, because truth be told, these are all sorts of sensational. These little vintage looking pots of blush are serious business, no kidding! The colours (four of them), are… Read more »
Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick ($19 CAN) Intense blue red in a glistening frost finish – can you ever go wrong with that description? Add to that every cent from the purchase goes towards helping women, men and children affected by AIDS. No brainer much? You bet it is!
Tail Me Something Wish On A Starfish Teal The Tide Turns
So, I guess I have a LUSH bath bomb addiction and it can not be contained and therefore, must be shared. I am battling, for what is, the worst winter of my life thus far and truth be told, it sucks. My way of combat is spending a good hour in the gym, followed by a nice, long soothing bathe, which has been bombed by LUSH Bath Bombs. I like to buy in bulk and use as my discretion, whenever… Read more »
Felt completely blah about a product that had been raved otherwise? Don’t you dare feel alone because I am with you. Especially if you are talking about NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I was underwhelmed and it left me wondering, is that it, really? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it is a completely disappointing product by any mean, but it is not exactly what it is played out to be.
Lush Tender is the night massage bar ($11.95) The most romantic smells in the world? You are asking a jasmine obsessed nut, so quite incontrovertibly my answer would be jasmine! Add to jasmine, some vanilla and ylang ylang and it can’t get more romantic than that. Share these scents with moisture and maybe some massage action with another (or don’t, just keep it for yourself :P) and that shall make a pretty (at this point I hate to sound redundant), but… Read more »
