While us folks in the tropics have been well into spring (for nearly a month!), the fact that the rest of the hemisphere is getting its due sunshine makes me feel less uncomfortable talking about spring color palettes and spring cleaning! I spent most of my Saturday going through piles of makeup, reorganizing it and editing my dresser into a very “peachy-pink” and “bright” theme and getting rid of anything “deep”, “dull” and “heavy”.

A Seriously Good Purchase!

Zoeva face brushes haul zoeva eye brush Zoeva 109 face paint brush photos and review zoeva 126 luxe sheer cheek brush review and photo Zoeva 227 eye definer brush review and photo

Unlike any other piece of makeup or skincare, brushes are something that let you instantly judge if they are good or not. One swipe over the cheek or a little blend over the eyes and you’re either sold or filled with regret over the pretty pennies you exchanged for the duds. Buying blind is never recommended but when you don’t have the choice of a personal testimony, you rely on fellow makeup enthusiasts to guide you and push you over to the knowing side!

A Beauty Haul For Spring

Spring beauty haul 2015 Tata Harper Refreshing Cleanser Sachajuan Hair Repair Alpha H Micro Cleanse Kiehls Magic Elixir Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration Kiehls Soy Milk creme de corps Original and Mineral Frizzy Logic

Nawt eggxactly! I actually ran out of a lot of my skincare essentials last week (including the glorious Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel) and some breathed their last only yesterday so a much awaited and exciting haul was in order. Its just that I had anticipated this set of empties a week before it actually happened, hence a diligently advance order was already placed! (Any excuse will do)

Makeup For March | A Good’ol Chat!

Spring makeup Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow No. 20 Nars Ashes to Ashes eyeshadow Dior Lip glow MAC Hush cream color base Clarins UV Plus HP sunscreen YSL cream blush Nars Smudgeproof eyeshadow base YSL Touche Eclat Dior Nude bb creme no. 3

The fact that its past mid-March and I hadn’t posted this one was actually gnawing at the back of my head and giving me sleepless nights! *drama* No really, other than the fact that I love a good chat about makeup and lipsticks, it also puts a lot of things in perspective, rotating through my makeup stash, using only what I need, not buying until something is used up, being more skin friendly etc, etc.

When you have been slack all week and not been a good blogger the only other thing to do and rescue the blog is cram everything up in one huge post and hit publish! This is exactly what I am upto here, with some bits on pamper, nail polish love, beauty jams and blog love thrown in. I have a feeling this is going to be a permanent addition to TCF (I am going to be blogging more I promise) but given how much I enjoyed putting this post together, I am definitely going to dish out a few more in succession. We’ll see.

You Need This Solid Cleanser In Your Life!

Beauty Blender cleanser solid review and photos best brush cleanser soap beauty blender cleanser review

While the entire beauty world was falling head first for the beauty blender sponge, my eyes were steadily fixed on this peculiar cleanser which supposedly cleaned the sponge better than anything else! White, unassuming and basically a soap.. how good can it actually be to warrant a purchase and shelling out nearly $20!?

Saving Space To Fit More Lipsticks

Making most of the makeup bag real estate is tricky business. I can spend hours shoving things in and out of my tiny bag till the “jigsaw” is complete without an inch to spare. While everything going in seems “essential” one does have to be judicious especially when there are xx lipsticks that you don’t have the heart to say no to! Makeup palettes are your best friend in such times but if like me you don’t own that many… custom palettes come to the rescue!
