The Indian beauty blog universe was abuzz with the new Nykaa So Matte! lipsticks so of course I had to pick one up to see for myself what the hype was about. These lipsticks come in 12 different shades, most of which are pinks. From the initial swatches I really liked the look of the shades Wicked Wine and Mischievous Plum since I really like dark lipsticks. However Wicked Wine looks pretty close to the Rimmel 107 which I already own, and though Mischievous Plum is gorgeous, I really didn’t think I’d get much wear out of it. So I settled for Naughty Nude which is a peachy-brown shade.
I keep telling myself that I’ll blog more often throughout the week but after Monday I seem to directly hit Friday. This past week work has been so hectic and things got quite ugly on Friday because I ended up losing my cool multiple times. Plus I think most people would be frustrated if they were at work till 11pm (yes 11PM!) on a Friday. So as you can imagine, that was just delightful and the week ended on a supremely high note. *heavy sarcasm*
Two things that have gotten me through this week are Late Night with Seth Meyers and the Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Masque, both of which were discoveries through good ol’ Youtube. I was watching Trevor Noah videos on Donald Trump and happened to stumble upon Seth Meyers. Can I just put it out there that I for one am extremely bummed that Seth Meyers is married? Evidently so was Jennifer Lawrence so, y’know, we’re in the same club, Jennifer Lawrence and I. Ha right.
I heard about the Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Masque in one of Fleur De Force’s videos and I was intrigued by the claims of the mask. By Wednesday my skin starts to look a bit dull and can definitely use a pick-me-up. This mask is supposed to give you instant radiance and revitalize your skin.
I like to stick to neutral lips not just for work, but also in general since I’m quite heavy-handed with my eyeliner and mascara. Today I’ve got a budget as well as a high end lipstick both of which wouldn’t be new to many of you, but since these are my staples I wanted to share!
I’m not much of a heavy duty makeup wearer every day, but I do like something to even out my skin tone at the very least. I find that Lisa Eldridge was quite right when she said that if you make the base perfect, you don’t really need too much makeup after that, and that’s exactly what I like to do for a natural every day look.
I had mentioned in an earlier post that my Bourjois CC Cream is lovely and does a great job, but I was a bit bored and wanted to experiment. I did some research and found that the MAC Face & Body foundation gives quite sheer and skin-like coverage so I thought I’ll give it a go. So the other day, I walked into my nearest MAC store and asked for the MAC Face & Body. Turns out that it wasn’t in stock but I had resolved to go back home with a MAC foundation (stubborn Aries characteristics peeking through!) so when the SA suggested Matchmaster instead, I thought I’ll test it out.
