You know you’re a makeup-aholic when you see a ‘soon-to-be’ released palette and decide that this is the one that you will pass by for sure, only to pick it up the moment it hits the market. I NEED INTERVENTION! Seriously guys, when I saw this palette a few months back, I was sure that the colors were TOO bright for me, my palate for neutral/nude shades just couldn’t digest this super neon-ish dazzling eyeshadow palette. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The palette maybe colorful yet quite wearable. Read on to know my views on this art palette, oops I mean eyeshadow palette LOL. Continue reading
I have to admit writing reviews is boring. Its kind of like writing a school essay where you have to think and think before putting down the right words. Give me an eye look tutorial and I can write it in my sleep but a review, that’s a tough one. But still, when I think I write a blog where I put out my views, writing a review is part and parcel of it. And that’s my justification for taking so long to write about my favorite eyeshadow palette from last year, Urban Decay’s Vice 2. Continue reading
Still finding it a bit hard committing back to the blog, but I just have to share with you some of my awesome buys from last month. October has been a great month in terms of beauty buys. I managed to get my hands on the awesome, super versatile Urban Decay Vice 2 palette. I had been lusting after the Too Faced Pretty Rebel palette and thankfully this one was available in Sephora here. Will post my reviews on these two palettes soon but they are limited edition, so ladies grab them while they are still available. Another gorgeous eyeshadow palette that I had been on the fence for quite some time, was the LORAC Pro palette which my dad finally gifted me last month as a belated birthday gift (more like he gave me the money and told me to get what I want and I got LORAC Pro along with the Vice 2 palette).

Summer is almost over, Thank God! It’s a bad season for makeup, especially if you live in the Middle East. With the coming of autumn and then winter, it’s time to experiment with some deep dark smoldering makeup. My infatuation with Urban Decay continues. They just can’t seem to do anything wrong, especially where eye makeup concerns. After their Naked palettes, the next spot should rightly go to the Urban Decay Smoked palette.
I am back, just like I promised, with my new eye look featuring the second Maybelline Eyestudio Quad I bought from Amazon, Mad for Mauve.
I am back with yet another eye look. This happens to be from one of my favorite drugstore brands, Maybelline. I have mostly bought lipsticks from Maybelline because of the low cost and their vast range of shades. I never really paid attention to their eyeshadow collections because, if you notice their stand in Lifestyle, Carrefour etc, they don’t really keep any eyeshadow palettes. I was watching one of my favorite Youtube makeup gurus, EmilyNoel83, where she featured this tiny yet awesome-ly colored eyeshadow palette from Maybelline. It was love at first sight for me and I knew that I had to get it. Sadly, it was not available here or in India, so I had to order from Amazon and after much drama (broken items and reshipment), I finally got my hands on it.
