My (birthday) month saw me spend my monies on a lot of velvet and plenty of cosmetics. While the former is reserved for another story, the latter serves subject here.

Here’s what I made mine–


(L-R) Forest Essentials Nargis Body Mist, Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, Bobbi Brown Retouch Wand in Rich, MAC Nutcracker Eye Kohl in Powersurge, MAC matte lipsticks in In The Spirit and Taupe, Colourpop liquid lipsticks

  • Colourpop liquid lipsticks— My haul consisted four Ultra Matte lipsticks- More Better, Bumble, Auto Correct & Speed Dial and one Ultra Metallic lipstick- Kween. Swatches…img_3028(Top to bottom) Ultra Metallic Lip in Kween, Ultra Matte Lips in More Better, Speed Dial, Bumble & Autocorrect [While the first four are a darling for a medium Indian skin tone, Autocorrect is a nay. It’s yellow undertones wash down my face bad!]
  • Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base and a Retouching Wand. The former is a boon to my winter skincare woes, enriched with Shea Butter and Vits B,C & E, It works as a primer and a moisturiser, hydrating my face and isn’t greasy. The Retouch wand, meanwhile, was bought in a darker shade [Rich] to help contour.img_3060
  • MAC Eye Kohl in Powersurge from their new Nutcracker collection, a well pigmented dark gold. Also, two lipsticks- a nude Taupe (that am literally living off- every girl likes a hydrating matte!) and In The Spirit, a sexy black that’s won as many likes as frowns. Swatches of the lipsticks and kohl…IMG_3078.jpg
    (L-R, top) MAC Taupe, MAC In The Spirit and MAC Powersurge. (Below) The lovely Nutcracker packaging. Don’t want to throw it away!
  • Forest Essentials body mist in Nargis. The brands body mists are a #win. THEY LAST REALLLLLLLY LONG! I’ve loved the Green Tea and Oudh before, I’m already ready to take the next step with Nargis 🙂 (har!) img_3066Hope my attempts at swatches helped (brown skin swatches aren’t easy to come by. But I also need to up my swatch game LOL).
    Off the booty it’s hard to pick one I don’t like! Basically my whole haul is such a Ridzee-YAY!Now be a darling and leave me feedback.Till then, WERK IT GIRL!
