MARC JACOBS Snake Charmer 5-Piece Petite Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Set



This Holiday season, Marc Jacobs came up with a mini lipgloss set with a very beautiful shade range. This Lip Lacquer set contains 5 Hi-Shine Lip glosses in mini versions. These are:

• Sugar Sugar – Light peach with shimmer
• Skin Deep – Taupe with pink undertone
• Raspberry Beret – Mid tone plum
• Boys Don’t Cry – Deep purple
• Ch-ch-changes – Warm brown with a blue and green shimmer




The formula of these glosses is very nourishing, and the shades are very well pigmented.   All the colors are opaque which means they provide maximum coverage on lips. Also, they feel super comfortable on lips too.

For me particularly, the shade “Sugar Sugar” was a little on lighter side as per my skin tone, almost similar to my lip color, but then again, I’m not disappointed from it as it provides a very creamy texture and I can pair it with any nude lip product to get desired result!




One thing, that differentiate these lip glosses from all the other glosses available in market, is that, these lip glosses have mint scent, but thankfully it is not intense at all. So I can definitely say that its not a bummer for all those who have trouble with strong scents. You just feel the scent for first few seconds after application, and then it disappears within a minute or so.

This set has a good range of shades for both day and night. Moreover, there’s a new shade in this set: “Ch-ch-changes” which is a very unique and interesting shade. I have never seen or worn anything like this on my lips before! But its comfortably wearable. It can be worn either individually as a gloss or as a lip topper.


Lip Swatches:



I purchased this set for 39$ USD but later on, it went on sale. If you are interested, you can check Sephora or Marc Jacobs Beauty website.

Overall, I think this is a great opportunity to try out the Marc Jacobs ‘Hi shine lip gloss formula’, which is a very good option in the given price range, and even better if you can get any deal on it!!

Hope y’all are having great time with your family and friends ❤

Have you tried any of these lip glosses yet? If yes, please share your experience. Would love to hear from you 🙂

Enjoy Holidays and Stay warm 🙂 See you soon in the next post!

Until then…





HUDA BEAUTY Contour & Strobe Lip Set


Hello everyone!


huda beauty holiday liptin set in trendsetter and snobby swatches.jpg


Recently, Huda Kattan (Huda Beauty) launched a few limited-edition Holiday makeup sets. Basically, the mini eyeshadow palettes and mini lip sets. Today’s post is all about the Contour & Strobe Lip set, that has gained popularity in no time, not only because of the lip products inside the liptins but because of very cute and eye-catching packaging as well.

These limited-edition lip sets are inspired by Huda’s own trademark pout, which are packaged in a covetable lip-shaped tin. Inside this tin, you’ll get a full-size Lip Contour, a mini Liquid Matte Lipstick in a complementary shade, and a mini Lip Strobe.

There are five different sets available in this collection and each one of them is retail for $25 USD.

The names of these 5 sets are:

– Trophy Wife & Shameless
– Muse & Angelic
– Silver Fox & Angelic
– Bombshell & Ritzy
– Trendsetter & Snobby

The set I bought is Trendsetter & Snobby.


huda beauty liptin in trendsetter swatches


This set contains:
– 0.04 oz/ 1.2 g Lip Contour
– 0.064 oz/ 1.9 mL Liquid Matte Lipstick
– 0.07 oz/ 2 mL Lip Strobe



‘Trendsetter’ is 90’s perfect brown shade in Liquid Matte, whereas ‘Snobby’ is a light-reflecting pink and gold gloss with rich pigments and intense color payoff. All of the three colors in this set are highly pigmented.

The formula of both of the matte liquid lip and lip contour (pencil) is little tacky, but since its very lightweight and thin, its not uncomfortable to wear. It doesn’t leave my lips feeling dry.

Lip contour (pencil) doesn’t have any scent, whereas Liquid matte lipstick has a strong scent (which I can’t explain), but it goes away within a few seconds of application. Lip strobe, on the other hand, does have a light scent, which also goes away after sometime. I must say, this lip strobe is surprisingly wearable. It looks perfect either ways, individually or as a lip topper. It looks beautiful no matter what. Also, the formula of strobe is pretty moisturized.

These do last quite a while, specially the matte liquid lipstick! But the Lip strobe comes off easily if you attempt to drink or eat something during the day.

Overall, I’m very impressed with this lip set. I think, these combinations are very gorgeous. I love the set I bought and I can’t get enough of it. ‘Snobby’ is perfect for the Holiday season. Mine has already finished and I have ordered another one in the full size, as I’m using it as a topper on almost every lip product I’m wearing these days.

In nutshell, I think its a pretty great deal for the price of $25.00, considering the products you get, alongwith the cute little lip-shaped tin. Otherwise, Huda Beauty’s full size liquid lips are usually priced at $20 and contour lips are priced at $18, but within these lip tins you’re getting each one of these mini liquid lipstick/strobe and one full-sized lip contour just for $25. So, its definitely a very good value/gift pack for anyone who wants to try Huda Beauty lip products for the first time. Did I mention that these lip tins are perfect for travel too. 🙂

Hope you’re enjoying this Holiday season with your family and friends 🙂 . Thank you so much for stopping by 🙂 .

See y’all soon in the next post. Until then…


NARS x Man Ray: The Kiss Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set

NARS x Man Ray The Kiss Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set review


This Sephora exclusive limited edition ‘Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set’ by Nars includes four full-sized Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, all sealed in a golden kiss covetable cosmetic case. The golden cosmetic case is inspired by the electrifying art of modern master Man Ray, who is well known as the ‘master-of-modern art’ and a very famous photographer of his time.


NARS x Man Ray The Kiss Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set


As mentioned earlier, this set features four full-sized shades: two of which are new limited-edition shades and two are from their existing line.


NARS x Man Ray The Kiss Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set swatches


This set contains:

  • 0.086 oz/ 2.4 g full-size Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Endangered Red (Bordeaux) matte finish
  • 0.086 oz/ 2.4 g full-size Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Toundra (rust) matte finish
  • 0.086 oz/ 2.4 g full-size Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Wild Ways (mahogany) sheer finish
  • 0.086 oz/ 2.4 g full-size Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Spell Bound (shimmering pink beige) sheer finish
  • Man Ray-inspired gold pouch


Man Ray for NARS Holiday Collection - The Kiss Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set - jpeg


All of these lip pencils have velvety smooth finish and these are very easy to apply. These are not true matte, hence these are quite comfortable to wear.

The non-drying formula of these lip pencils is enriched with vitamin E and other emollients for a creamy texture. Because of this formula, it doesn’t dry out the lips.




All the shades in this set are pretty wearable. The color payoff is also good (not very long-lasting though). It needs re-application after having a meal or a cup of coffee. It is tranferrable but at the same time, it doesn’t leave any stain on lips after wearing off.




‘Spell Bound’ is little too sheer for my skin tone, but it has a little shimmer to it, which helps making it not look dull. Other three have good pigmentation, but then again, I have to apply few layers to see the actual color on my lips.


NARS x Man Ray The Kiss Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set swatches on Indian skintone


The only feature, I’m not very impressed with is that, these pencils are not retractable. So you may have to bear additional cost of $6 to buy NARS pencil sharpener to sharpen this product (if you don’t already have one).

Overall, I do think this whole set is a great deal for $49, which is a very reasonable price for 4 full sized NARS lip pencils. As a single lip pencil will cost you 27$ each, if you decide to buy any of these separately! This definitely makes a beautiful gift set for makeup lovers.


Hope you are enjoying this festive time of year with your friends and families 🙂

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I wish y’all a very Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays ❤

Too Faced Boss Lady Beauty Agenda

Although I’m not a big fan of winters per se, but I love Holiday season! Who doesn’t 🙂 .

Talking about Holidays, this time of year is actually very exciting for all the makeup lovers/junkies! You ask why? Because almost all makeup/beauty brands launch their gift sets and value sets during this season. Usually, I don’t like to buy makeup in such large quantities at one time, but this Holiday season I’m breaking all the rules 😀 .

Hence (finally), I’ve decided to revamp my makeup collection and bought few Holiday makeup sets. In the coming posts, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on each of them with you all. So stay tuned 🙂 .


The first thing I bought is this “Too Faced Boss Lady Beauty Agenda”!

Shadows are nicely pigmented and have an array of finishes. Good for day or night. Texture wise, the powders go on very well on the lid (primer or not). The majority of the shimmery shades are significantly less dusty. The mattes are velvety and pigmented, though there are few misses in the palette judging from swatches alone. I have already used few shades on my lids and I am really happy about the quality so far.

This palette also includes a Highlighter, Blush and a Bronzer inside, which is of great quality as well.


Too faced lady boss holiday set review





I loved the melted matte lipstick. This is my first time trying it and I loved the formula and the way it feels on lips. Inspite of the matte formula, it doesn’t dry out my lips at all. The only thing I keep in mind every time I wear it is that I exfoliate and well hydrate my lips before applying, so that it will look more flattering 😉

I’m sure most of you must’ve already heard many good things about (or probably used) this mascara, so I’ll not spend more time on it. I think this mascara is just OK for me. I found that single application is good but when I tried another coat, it resulted in clumping.
Overall, it’s definitely a very well pigmented, dark black mascara, and it separates and defines the lashes well.


My Final Thoughts:

So, this was my first time trying any product from this brand (Yeh… always late to the party 😛 ) and I really loved the quality and Idea of this whole set. But if you are someone who already own any or most of the stuff similar to this set, then you may want to skip this one! But if not, then I highly recommend this Beauty Agenda which in my opinion is a wonderful gift idea for yourself or your loved ones!


What do you think about this Beauty Agenda? Don’t forget to share your thoughts 🙂 And lemme know if you enjoyed this post and want me to write more posts like this. Hope you are having a good day!

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder: Botanic Dream

wet n wild megaglo highlighting powder botanic dream review


Wet ‘n’ Wild’s “Botanic Dream” MegaGlo Highlighting Powder is a very beautiful pink highlighting powder. There are total 6 shades available in this range, out of which 2 shades have been released a while ago, while 4 are the new additions.

best highlighter for indian skin



These MegaGlo Highlighters come in a squared plastic case with a very beautiful leaf pattern embossed into the powder. Each one of these highlighters retails for $4.99 (USD) and contains 0.19 oz of total product.



As I first swatched this powder on the back of my hand, I noticed that this product offers a decent amount of pigmentation just after a single swipe. It has a pearl sheen and very easy to blend formula.

The texture is very buttery and it has very little chunks of glitter, which you’ll only notice on cheeks! This shade lasted for 6-7 hours on me before fading.

In my opinion, this is a very good drugstore highlighter under this price range! If you’re just a beginner in makeup area and are trying to explore more and more budgeted beauty products on frequent basis, then you don’t want to skip on this one!

What are your thoughts on this product? Would love to hear back 🙂

Happy (almost) weekend 🙂

10 Biggest Fashion Trends This Fall: 2017

Hi everyone!

Can’t believe we are officially in Fall! No other season feels more like a fresh start than Fall. And just like in any other season, you may suddenly feel the need to take a long, hard look at your closet and reassess your wardrobe.

If you’re someone who love keeping yourself up with the current fashion trends while building your wardrobe every season, this post is for you 🙂 . Having said that, in today’s post I am talking about 10 most popular fall fashion trends of this year which I bet, you wouldn’t want to miss 😉 .


  1. Power Red: Red is officially the color of Fall 2017. It is undeniably most influential color trend of this season.

2. Houndstooth: Designers are extremely enthusiastic about this print this fall/winter. You’ll see this fabric in almost every form, from coats to suiting!

3. Patent (Vinyl) Bottoms: Fashion bloggers have lived this trend on streets during NYFW this year! It’s an easy and sleek way to make a powerful statement. But if you’re wondering about how to make it work in real life, I’ll suggest to keep it balanced by pairing it with some lightweight tee/blouse.

4. A Pair of Ankle Boots: Weather it’s leather or suede, block or stiletto heeled, a statement pair of ankle boots is an essential staple this Fall. Although this trend is being pulled from last year, the designers are excited about the popularity of ankle boots more than ever and having fun with their designs.

5. Balloon Sleeve knits: The sleeve renaissance didn’t stop at bells and bubbles. This statement sleeve trend is unique because in this case, the sleeve plays with proportion in a way that’s different to all the other statement sleeves, and which is why you need it.

6. Slogan Tees: T-shirts with ‘slogans’ on them are not a new concept in fashion world, but it has definitely made a place in top 10 fashion trends’ list this year! Ever since, Prabal Gurung presented the models on runway (during fashion week) in slogan tees stating “The future is female,” “I am an immigrant,” “Our minds, our bodies, our power,” “Revolution has no borders,” “Stronger than fear,” “Nothing more, nothing less,” “Awake,” and more; women can’t stop embracing this trend!

7.  Large Statement Earrings: An eye catching pair of statement earrings has taken the lead. Although the idea of “statement jewelry” has been presented for the majority of this year, the earring department has made some true strides. I think including statement jewelry is one of the easiest and chic way to revive your old outfit.

8. Thigh High Boots: Thigh high boots are the real hit of this season. As seen on the runways of Paris and New York, boots have reached new heights. The best way to style these boots are pairing them with chic skirts or dresses, and if you are not a fan of skirts and dresses, then wear them with your favorite pair of skinny jeans.

9. Leopard Anything or Everything: Fall is a perfect time to embrace the fiercer version of ourselves and the best way to channel this spirit is to add a little pop of pattern like “animal print”.

10. Ring Bags: Last but certainly not least, the ring bag trend is everywhere this year. The metal ring is such a fun and fresh update to everyday handbags. This season, rings will become handles! Whether you opt for a cross body bag or for a tote to take to the office, these bags are going to be your next big obsession!

Bite Beauty: The Perfect Pair Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set (Meringue / Fig)

Bite beauty lipstick swatches

           Left: Fig           Right: Meringue


Bite Beauty is a Canadian brand that have gained popularity in no time because of its best quality lip products. This brand is all about better ingredients. I purchased this mini lipstick set for 15$ (USD) from Sephora. It was a limited edition set which might or might not be available anymore. But if you love the shades of these lipsticks, you can still get the standard versions of both shades.

As the name says, this lipstick set is from Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche lipstick range which is handcrafted to provide the maximum moisture to the lips. These lipsticks are made with 12 edible oils and triple milled pigments. These lipsticks provide a saturated lip color with weightless coverage and are made from the fresh pressed fruit that adds the citrus flavor to them which you’ll notice after applying.


Bite beauty mini lipstick swatches


The texture of these lipsticks is very creamy, smooth and moisturizing. Pigmentation wise, these lipsticks are just wonderful and are opaque in one swipe, not streaky at all.  The scent of the lipsticks is something which differentiate them from all the other lipsticks that I have used so far! They smell like a citrusy fruit, and if you just accidentally roll your tongue on your lips, you’ll notice these lipsticks taste very sweet and lemony at the same time. The finish of these lipsticks is somewhere between satin to semi-matte. These lipsticks feel light and very hydrating on the lips. The lasting power of these lipsticks is good, its somewhere between 5 to 6 hours without any budging or bleeding.



Meringue: is a “peachy nude” in color. It’s described as a light-medium, pinky-peach with warm undertones and has a satin sheen. It has mostly opaque coverage with a light-medium consistency.


Bite beauty amuse bouche Meringue swatch


Fig: is a gorgeous “neutral pink” in color, with a little bit of mauve undertones. It’s not too warm nor too cool. It is described as a nude rose. It’s a light-medium, rosy pink shade with warm undertones and has a satin finish.

Hope y’all are having a great week so far. 🙂
