Loreal True Match Blush in True Rose : Swatches+Review

So, if you have been reading the blog regularly, you would know that I absolutely loved a blush by Colorbar called Cosmic Rose. It was a fabulous color and before I went ahead and got more from that range (I was eyeing Peachy Rose) they revamped their blushes and the shades I liked were gone!

I was heartbroken obviously, but I decided to find a close match somehow....and I stumbled across the L'Oreal le Blush True Match in True Rose and it was Love!

Maybelline White Superfresh Compact: Review

Bangalore weather is really pleasant almost throughout the year, which is why I genereally don't feel the need to use a compact most times, making compacts my least frequent purchase probably. The last drugstore one I had was this Lakme one I think and ofcourse I always have a MAC MSF in my stash coz it is just perfect. 

And then Maybelline went ahead and brought out their White Superfresh Compact and I knew I had to try it. Like most of their other products this one didn't disappoint me either!

Makeup Revolution #Liphug Lipstick Love Can Set You Free : Review

Even though I was late to jump onto the bandwagon, I've fallen hard for gel based lustrous lip products. Traditional lipsticks with their creamy/waxy textures never got me excited a lot, and for a long time I was a 'lipgloss-but-blotted' kinda girl. Now that I've found a HG lipstick texture to go by, I can't resist trying out different shades!

So... Love Can Set You Free. Trust me when I say it's all kinds of ah-may-zing!
