Chanel Coco Code Spring 2017: Harmony Blush Review

I remember how ecstatic I was to buy Sping 2016 limited edition blush Harmony from Chanel called Sunkiss Ribbon. I still call it my favourite blush, I have hardly made a dip on the pan and the money I spent on that one was absolutely worth it.

This year again,Β  I was looking forward to Chanel’s Spring 2017 limited edition blush launches and when I looked at their harmony blush called Coco Code, oh wow! I instantly made up my mind to add this to my collection.

So, it was relatively an easier decision to take πŸ™‚ Continue reading

Make-up Monday: Lush Lips- Red Lipsticks for Indian and Olive skintone

Lipstick makes a long history on its way to our vanity boxes. It has come a long way indeed. From its use by people having “apparently promiscuous profession” during the Greek and Roman empires to its everyday use by almost every girl in the 21st century, Lipstick has seen it all- from its complete abolishment (during the rise of Christanity) toΒ  its loving social embrace in today’s world.

Today let’s talk about RED lips. Β There is something innately feminine about red lips. It surely gives aΒ  stunning makeover to youΒ  but also add that fierce element in your persona at the same time. Love love love Red Lipsticks. So let me take you through 10 Red lipsticks that I feel are suitable for olive and Indian (tan) skintones. I am not saying they won’t work for any other skin tone and shade but I can surely promise that for tan skin tones, these shades hit home, girls !

PS: As I was swatchingΒ  a lot of lipsticks for this post, I used a lot of lip balm on my lips before applying the lipcolor and used cleaning oil for rubbing off the previous lipcolor. This somehow gives more sheer coverage for almost all lipsticks on me. However, below in the desciption for each lipstick, I have mentioned its original sheer or rich pigment character, which should hold true for normal usage.
