NARS Torrid Blush: Review, Swatches

Hi All,

I’ve always been an avid reader (if you’re wondering why I’m mentioning this, read further) & a very rebelious kid. I always did the exact opposite of what I was told. And one of the forbidden things was reading Mills&Boons. My Mom had strictly warned me that I was not to touch them till I was 14…but then, how many Nancy Drews can a girl read , right? And plus, being ‘Forbidden‘ piqued my interest even further and I made a friend get me one of her Moms novels. Well, suffice to say it opened a whole new world of a very different vocabulary…I was suddenly exposed to words like, ‘Sighing, swooning, throbbing and…yes you guessed it..Torrid.’

I recall running to the dictionary to find out the meanings of these words..and mind you I was never this enthusiastic to find out meaning of words in my study books Wink Nevertheless, when I saw this blush on strawberrynet, I was immediately transported back to my childhood where I spent hours giggling with girlfriends over such words. Smile Smile And I simply had to get this…Ah! Childhood memories…If only I knew they would make me buy more makeup when I grew older…. Wink Wink

NARS Blush Gina: Review, Swatches

Hi All,

I’d like to think that each of my blushes have a story to it…other than my insatiable thirst for more blushes that is.. Wink I usually try to jump right in and not bore anyone with the details but then there are some blushes which deserve their story to be told…Sorry, I’m getting too senti over blush aren’t I?

Bourjois Sweet Kiss Naturel Lipstick Rose Tendre Review & Swatches

After reviewing the Bourjois Sweet Kis Natural Lippy in Rose Delicat here & reading Ric’s review on the shade she has here, I thought to review the other shade I have from this range calledRose Tendre. It’s no more hidden from you that I like sheer shades and lighter hues and I thought this would be perfect. After all, this shade seems to be a cult fav of a lot of gals around.Bourjois-rose-tendre-lipstick-review-+-pink-lipstick

After oogling Kleancolor NPs on Kej’s blog (NailArtandThings) and Dimpal’s blog (Crazy Polishes) my brain went on over drive and I frantically started looking for good deals on them.

Maybelline High Shine Colorsensational Lipstick Fruit Punch Review & Swatches

Even though I’d picked up the swirl liners, the dream matte powder, the foundation and thedream touch blushes as soon as they were out in the market, I hadn’t picked up the lippies released with them. The reason being that I thought the colors wouldn’t be too out of this world and quite common..So I ignored it for quite a while. But then some time back Rash happened to do a post on the lipstick in this range called Fruit Punch and that was it! I knew I had to pick it up..I wish it looked as good on me as it does on her but this shade has really won me over and I’m sure it will win you over as well SmileMaybelline-high-shine-colorsensational-lipstick-Fruit-punch-review-+-high-shine-lipstick

MAC Peaches Blush Review & Swatches

A lot of you must recall the number of times I’ve spoken about my brother wrt my MAC buys. This time however, I’m back with a blush which I got from my hubs…or rather wheedled out of him Wink Remember I mentioned the Nubile Paintpot and the Deliciously Forbidden Lippy I got  from the Posh Paradise Collection 2mts earlier? I got this blush along with the lippy which was quite a shock to my better half..Why? Because dragged him to the store for the lipstick only…and then ofcourse I couldn’t resist the blushes…and in the end he couldn’t resist my puppy-dog look Smile Smile But all’s well that ends well and I got my MAC Blush in Peaches!!!MAC-peaches-blush-review-+-sheertone-blush

Ambika Pillai Blush Brush Review

For a blush crazy gal like me, it’s imperative to have the right tools for application. I have brushes from Bare EscentualsOriflameVegaBourjois, etc but the best I have used till date is this one from Ambika Pillai. I don’t have a MAC or Sigma yet so can’t compare this to them but I can assure you that this brush does rise to the competition with aplomb!Ambika-Pillai-blush-brush-review-+-blush-brush
