When My Skin is Suddenly Sensitive

La Roche Posay Skincare Toleriane and Effaclar Duo plus review La Roche Posay Toleriane Riche and Toleriane Fluide review best moisturiser for sensitive skin La Roche Posay Effaclar A.I review Best treatment for acne prone skin for oily sensitive skin

A good skincare routine is not infallible. Its the truth most of us fail to notice or choose to ignore. Obviously, no two people have the same skin and no skincare was ever made invincible! I am sure I am not the only one who’s been betrayed by “that” amazing cleanser or “this” beloved moisturiser. It could be that bag of chips or that bowl of sweets or the nights when I slept with the makeup on.. anything! Bad skin is just waiting to happen.

This post has a little back story which goes to the time when I was three! Bright sunny day, my mum busy with her chores, I was playing by myself and chewing on some gum when it hit me that life would be so much more interesting with that piece of gum on my brows! Swell idea I tell you, white brows.. who’d have thought!

Over-packing My Makeup Bag.. Yet Again!

Laura Mercier Custom Artist Portfolio Makeup case Large review Makeup packing skincare packing

For the umpteenth time I am packing tonnes of stuff knowing perfectly well that half of it is unnecessary! The best excuse I can think of is that this time its a trip home and with plenty of parties on the horizon I need my essentials for survival and who knows I might be tempted to wear a red lip! *Shocker* I know!

I have a brown-eye-shadow problem. My brain is hard-wired to never be completely pleased with whatever brown/bronze eye shadow I have and always lust after the “next best thing”. This has led to accumulating so many many eye shadows, its not even funny! This when I hardly wear eye makeup! So when I say to you that I may have finally found an answer to all my “brown-eye-shadow” prayers, you should take me seriously! *chuckle*

I know its all a little premature for us in the tropics but I am too eager for autumn.

Also, this is my 100th post! (Cue) Applaud!

Chanel Les Beiges | The Wonder Powder ?

Powders are always an unnecessary part of my makeup routine, the “extra” step. My first ever “brush” with a powder was the MAC Careblends Pressed Powder which being as awesome as it is, made me rethink my whole makeup philosophy! After polishing off a pan recently, I had no doubt I’d repurchase it, but the Chanel Les Beiges had been at the back of my head always, and I finally gave in to that temptation!

While I am no expert at eye makeup and definitely not a regular eye shadow wearer, there is something about MAC eye shadows that makes me want to (sometimes) get them out and make an effort. Could be the colors, or the blendability or may be just the brushes that I use! The other day I realized that for an eye makeup novice, I have a pretty decent stash of MAC eye shadows. So if you are like me, and love a good neutral and not sure where to begin, let me help you (read enable a purchase) with a few good options that MAC has to offer.

My love affair with Chanel marks its first anniversary this week! I vividly remember the first time I splurged mega bucks on Chanel. Came home with a lighter wallet and the prettiest chic-est bag of goodies! The famous black on white with a bold C-H-A-N-E-L, grabbing eye-balls as it went past. Oh the feeling! Its been a Chanel-tastic year for me. Also explains my scanty bank balance.

Soft, Strong and Shiny Hair

I wish I was one of those people who wakeup everyday to a great hair day! Sadly enough, its been a long struggle and a tedious task of narrowing down products that work for me and get my hair to feel and look as it does now. From my self-confidence at abysmally low levels to now when I have a decent mane of thick locks, its been nothing short of “rags to riches” story, only one which is about my hair!
