My Current Skincare Regime - Transitioning Into Winter

A month ago,  I had introduced some new products into my skincare regime. Two weeks after that,  I was really happy with the slow and steady improvement that I noticed and I put up a bare-faced selfie on instagram.  That picture, (which I can't seem to find on my phone right now but you can see it here), along with my Diwali picture.......

Memebox Superbox #49 All About Lips - Unboxing and Contents

The Memebox is my absolute favourite subscription box and it takes tremendous willpower to not order all the wonderful themed boxes that are launched each week (click here to see all my Memeboxes).  I however,  prefer boxes that seem to be more skincare-centric rather than makeup-centric since there are high chances of receiving shades that are unsuitable for my skintone. But here's the Superbox #49, All About Lips, which is a lip-makeup exclusive box. Did I get shades suitable for me? Read on to know.....

Mirenesse Now On Luxola.com And Shipping To India!

As much as I find TV commercials annoying here, in India, I love watching them when I travel abroad. Even if they are in a language I don't understand. During my honeymoon in Australia in 2003, on a cable home shopping channel, I saw some beauty products by an Australian brand called Mirenesse that seemed wonderful. I searched in stores and malls but couldn't find this brand so had to give up. And now, after 11 years, I hear that it is available on South Asia's #1 online beauty destination, Luxola.com. What's even better is that Luxola.com now ships to India as well!!!

MAC Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner In Designer Purple - Review, Swatch and EOTD

At times, there are products that you love and use often and yet, forget to review them. MAC Pearglide Intense Eye Liner in Designer Purple is one such product (along with L'Oreal Chrome Shine in Sparkling Sepia which I think is now discontinued). Each time I wear it, I tell myself that I have to review it soon and then I forget about it. With Diwali almost here, let me show you a gorgeous, sparkling liner that adds that perfect little glimmer of bling to your festive look....

"An eye pencil that provides rich, luxurious colour with a touch of shimmer and sparkle. Soft, smooth, creamy formula glides on for a perfectly intense line, yet it's soft texture allows you to blend. Long-wearing, smudge-proof."
