I love a good old haul! I’ve recently ventured into beauty products that have a holistic touch and after rummaging through the Cult Beauty site, I found a few things that I had to have! After waiting on my door for 2 days, I received the package, excitedly I wanted to do my first beauty video. Cult Beauty also sent me their goody bag with the order, which has SO MANY beautiful products! Watch my haul now: Continue reading CULT BEAUTY HAUL
TMI is a tag that involves answering fifty utterly-random, yet personal questions about yourself and your life. It stands for Too Much Information and is actually pretty fun to do! So here goes everything.
I’ve sort of let beauty content slide on my blog and part of it is because life got in the way. Part of it, I sort of lost my inspiration and drive to enthusiastically discuss swatches and pigmentation. But, all’s not lost and I’m kicking off 2016’s first makeup post with a gorgeous eyeshadow palette; the mighty Urban Decay Vice 4 palette.
The palette has jewel tones that are stunning to use wet or dry. The pigmentation is standard Urban Decay shadow with an added touch of finesse. Compared to the glittery shadows of Naked 2&3’s, this palette has finer milled pigmentation that really packs on the punch. The color quality is also consistent and you wouldn’t find any disappointments that prove to be one-off. Also, from a neutral palette lover’s perspective, this one’s the most wearable off the Vice Palettes and I did gravitate towards it because you can ease into wearing brights on your lids.
With that said, it does come with one slight problem: FALLOUT! You heard me, just like the other palettes, this one also has a lot of fallout in glitter specifically. I’d reckon to always work with your eyes first and then go into complexion. However, if that isn’t something you’d like to do, you could use the sticky side of a sticky-note and place it under the eye to get rid of any fall out.
Let me know in the comments below what do you have to say about the Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette?
“She’s disheveled, bits and pieces of her are missing, she’s been hurt and she’s made some mistakes. She is a child on certain days, and others, she’s pulling through relentlessly like a grown-up. They expect her to smile through her pain, anticipate less and love unconditionally, they want to judge what she wears, who she meets, who she chooses to love. They all have an opinion on her freedom, her choices, her love and her life. Her gender comes at a price and countless expectations; she births, she gives, she works and she does it all under labels that try to bring her down. Continue reading STYLE HAS NO SIZE
Contouring kits have taken the makeup world by the storm! Whilst I’ve been always on the fence about a full-on, chiselled contour for everyday purposes, a subtler defined version has always rocked my boat. So, without further ado, here are my thoughts.

There are a lot of things I do not like about this month. It signifies so much and surprises so little. But most importantly, today’s the day 8 years ago; I was first inclined towards self-harm. Continue reading Its been 8 years…
When Karima from Shameless Fripperies used this foundation tutorial after tutorial, I knew that I had to try it. It supposedly claims to give a natural finish, blends seamlessly and meshes with the skin instead of sitting on top of it. I know it’s rude, but I really want to put a massive *BEEP* after that claim as the product doesn’t deliver and has been one of the most heartbreaking purchases *inserts sad face*.

Disclaimer: I LOVE F.R.I.E.N.D.S and make a lot of references to this show and thus, this is my story of buying a blush based only and only on its name alone. Read more now… Continue reading Two Faced Soul Mate Blush in Ross & Rachel
Summer’s back! As much as I hate Dubai’s burning (literally) heat, I do enjoy bringing back tan in my makeup and softening my makeup. Unfortunately, that is not what this post is about (Sorry about that :P). I got my hands on the new Nars Dual Intensity Eye-shadow Palette and here’s my last ode to a wintry cold look, well, for this year anyways. Continue reading Nars Dual Intensity Palette Demo + Review
