Perfectly Pink :: NYX Soft Lip Matt Antwerp

I have looked everywhere for the perfect pink lip shade and one that lasts.

I have been a fan of the NYX Soft Matte Lip and first wrote about it here. So while I was at the Sephora I made it a point to go and check the NYX counter and I found my perfect Pink.


Antwerp is a cool tone pink and dries completely matt. It does last about 2 to 3 hrs but while it fades, it leaves a beautiful pink tint to the lips.


I have realised that reds are a little to much for the morning time in summers so finding this perfect pink has come at just the right time. I have been able to pair this with almost all my outfits or rather I have been choosing outfits around this colour and have been loving it lately…


What lip shade have you been wearing this summer??

First Day of Spring :: OOTD

With spring officially here I have been leaning together lighter weight materials. I have always loved denim but being able to find the perfect midi skirt has been game changing. I have been reaching for this skirt over every other skirt in my wardrobe.

I have also realised that this wash in denim can be paired with every other colour and also compliments every skin tone. And because its so light weight its breathable and not as restrictive as a pair of jeans.

What are the type of materials you reach for at this time of the year??

Indian Luxury :: Forest Essentials

As someone who has oily skin I find it very difficult to find a moisturiser that suits me when the whether changes. We are moving from winter into spring here is Mumbai right now.

After trying a few different formulations from the high-street I realised that I would have to deal with the problem in a very different way. I started to look into various alternative products to get the hydration my skin needed. While researching I came across the lot of people recommending Aloe Vera. And also one of the brand name that kept coming up was Forest Essentials.

Before this I had never tried any of their products so I really did not know what to expect. While I visited the store in the mall I was very presently surprised with how luxurious their stores are. All the products were beautifully displayed. Also they are a brand that believes in old Ayurvedic ways of making products so I knew that the products are of the highest quality.

I bought the Light Hydrating Facial Gel.  This moisturiser is a gel consistency. This is not the first time I have tried this kind of moisturiser as I have used the Clinique Moisture Surge. I have used it for over a month now.

When I apply the gel it goes on a little sticky but that goes away as soon as the gel gets absorbed in the skin. I was most surprised that the gel acts as an amazing primer also and helps keep makeup last far longer than usual.

I know that I will be hitting the bottom of this pot very soon and I cannot wait to try more of their products.

What new brands have you tried recently??
