My Winter Night Time Skincare Routine

It is quite essential to change your skincare routine with the change in season. In winters, skin is more prone to getting dry and flaky. Most of my skincare routine essentially remains the same during summers and winters, however I switch up some products here and there so as to ensure my skin remains moisturized through out.

Christmas Wishlist

It is Christmas week already. This is my favorite time of the year. Everything is so festive. All the malls are so beautifully decorated. You get to drink Starbucks’ Toffee Nut Crunch in those red cups. Everyone is in a more relaxed mood. And the list goes on. There are few things I have been eyeing recently so thought I would share them with you. I hope Santa is reading this post 🙂


Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation – Review

This is one of the most requested reviews. I have been using this foundation for over a year now. I bought this one just before my wedding as one of the trousseau products. I thought I could use it for the small home functions when I don’t have a makeup artist coming. What made me buy it immediately was that the SA told me it is oil free and long lasting.

Loreal Paris Mat Magique Compact Powder

Loreal launched this range of affordable compact powders a while back. Almost very blogger has reviewed this product by now. I know I am quite late on the band wagon, but that is because I didn’t like the product at all when I first used it. I did not want to recommend something that I didn’t like at all. But after using it in a different way, I started enjoying the product. Read on to see my review on this Loreal Paris Mat Magique Compact Powder.

My Top Lip Balms

I cannot live without lip balms. I need to have a lip balm on me all the time. That’s because I have very dry and chapped lips. Whether it is summer or winter, my lips always are flaky. I keep applying lip balms every few hours and especially before going to bed. Needless to say I have tried most of the lip balms available in the market. So here are my top 5 picks:

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Hair Masque

I have combination hair, where my scalp is oily and hair quite dry. It is a weird combination to have for your hair. And I find it so difficult to find he right kind of products for my hair that keep it balanced. Luckily for me, I have found the perfect shampoo, which is the Kerastase Specifique Bain Divalent Balancing Shampoo (read my full review here). As far as conditioning my hair goes, I am yet to find the perfect one. Every now and then I try to deep condition my hair as they have become very rough with all the colouring and heat application by way of blow drying and curling. I rarely oil my hair. I know its supposed to make your hair better but I feel my hair falls A LOT when I oil it and it requires me to wash my hair two or even three times to get rid of the oil. So I use deep conditioning hair masks to keep my hair soft and moisturized.

Most Used Makeup Brushes

A workman is only as good as his tools. Well, sorry for the comparison with a workman, but the saying is true for the beauty and makeup world too. For a good finish, you need to have the right tools. Your tools are just, if not more, important than the product itself. I feel brushes are a one-time investment. If you take good care of them, they last forever.
