It’s been a while since I did a round-up of my current beauty favourites from the drugstore world, something I always plan to do but never get around to it because I feel like such posts are boring to write and boring to read. At the same time, I want you to know what’s keeping […]Read More Current Favourites – Beauty
No girl can ever have enough nude lipsticks. Ever. I was never the one to wear nude lipsticks because they weren’t really a trend in India until recently. Until a couple of years ago, lipsticks meant ‘adding colour to your lips‘ and not the ‘my lips but better‘ rage that is possibly the most everlasting […]Read More Favourite Nude Lipsticks
I have to put this down in writing — NYX Professional Makeup is my all-time favourite drugstore brand. Over time, I have tried a lot of products from NYX starting with the soft matte lip creams when they first launched in India, to their primers (angel veil), lipsticks, slide on eye pencils (black sparkle is my […]Read More Must-have travel eye palette – NYX Lid Lingerie
Review: of the Colorbar Kiss-proof Lip Stains in three shades – Rustic, Royal Pink, and Haute Latté The History There are some really praise-worth, affordable drugstore brands that get swept under the carpet for the sole reason that nobody wants to talk about them because nobody ever talks about them!

I never tend to talk about these because I assume that these […]Read More All time loves – bath, body & hair

However, a full year of favourites maybe a bit too much information to spill all at once (and monthly is way too often), so I’m dividing this series into four quarters. Also, I can’t […]Read More 2018 Favourites – Quarter One
Review: The Face Shop Natural Sun Eco Sebum Control Hydrating Sun Cream. Gosh, that’s a long one to remember! If there was one piece of advice I would give my younger self it would be this – don’t be reckless, always wear sunscreen. I have extremely sensitive skin prone to redness, allergies and severe tanning […]Read More Hat, sunglasses, sunscreen. Check.
Review: The Nykaa matt nail enamel in 5 shades – nougat bar, rasberry tart, blueberry frosting, pink meringue and nutcracker dreams As much as we would love to see nail paint brands like Essie, Ciaté London, Formula X and OPI opening stores in India, it’s a pleasant surprise to discover Indian brands such as Nykaa launching […]Read More Say no to naked nails

Let’s talk about the ‘period’ — says nobody in India. So, this Valentine’s Day let’s talk about a different kind of red. The most primitive phenomenon behind the source of our genesis, the ‘period’, is often associated with shame, embarrassment and secrecy. In a resolute attempt to break the menstrual taboo, The Better India campaign is […]Read More Don’t hide it. Period.
