ESTEE LAUDER The Smoother Universal Perfecting Primer Review and Swatch

I believe in the magical powers of a primer and there isn't a day when I'm not using one. Since my skin tends to lose its moisture faster than normal skin people, I rely on a good primer to lock in moisture and keep foundation looking fresh. While the silicone-y, slippery feel of primers may turn off some of you (including myself), the benefits definitely outweigh the 'feel of it'.
Today, I am sharing a newly launched primer by Estee Lauder.  It's called The Smoother Universal Perfecting Primer which is designed for all skin types. It instantly smooths out skins' texture for an even makeup application that also look great in pictures. Lets find out more...

Origins Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask Review and Swatch

It seemed like a partied really hard after the valentine's weekend but truth is that I got completely consumed in family activities and meet and greets. Its so nice to be able to reach out to people, say hellos and some good byes, sing birthday songs and just live life as it happens without much planning. I am quite a planner though and I love to keep things organized, but sometimes being off schedule has its own merits. I am also reading a thriller, The Passenger by Lisa Lutz and its quite a compelling read. Amidst all this, its hard to keep up with facials or skincare and there are some products I always count on when I am not up with my schedule - Origins Clear Improvements Active Charcoal Mask is at the top of that list.
Its a really long name for a wonderful mask that does more than what it mentions on the packaging. At least for me :)

PRADA Candy Kiss Eau De Parfum Review

Happy Valentine's Day you all!!
I decided to share this bottle of perfume I got, just in time for today's celebration and also Hershey's Kisses. Come on! Who doesn't crave milk chocolate today? And a flirtatious and feminine scent that reminds me of my early 20s? Bring it on.
Sometimes its legit to be self indulgent, enveloping yourself in a cloud of fragrance, walking like you are a million bucks, without worrying about the possible judgements, only because, someone chose you. Because there is someone who loves you, makes your heart flutter and inspires you to become a better version of yourself, every single day. So what if there is one out of 365 days to celebrate it. Isn't it worth a celebration everyday?

So, this perfume is definitely something I would have never purchased myself. I stay away from sweet scents because they 'feel' immature. However, there is something different about this one.

STILA Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Damsel Review and Swatch

If you love the sultry black kajal look but find it too dramatic for everyday, then here is a gorgeous, deep, dark brown shade that promises a softer, doe eyed look! It is my favorite eye liner for almost 2 years and counting and I love this shade on my big, black eyes. 
Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in the shade called Damsel really does make eyes look romantic, innocent - much like a damsel.

CHANEL ROUGE COCO Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in 434 MADEMOISELLE Review and Swatch

This Spring nude lip colors are on trend and I find that a refreshing change from the darker/bolder colors from Fall/Winter and there are so many beautiful nude colors to choose from. I am truly, deeply madly all about this shade from Chanel. Mademoiselle has been my go to shade and it always work for me!  
This gorgeous shade is from the iconic Rouge Coco line from Chanel. I don't even recall how many times I have repurchased this. Honestly, I own no other shade from the Rouge Coco line because I am always so hooked on to this one. Many of you might say, the shade is 'dupable' and I would like to agree, however, there is nothing I can find that matches this one. It looks amazing on my skintone. Its 'the one' nude shade I can't live without, even when it comes with a $45 price tag. Too expensive for a lipstick but the texture, the formula, the shade and everything else is so perfect; I do not even want to look for a dupe!

I am extremely satisfied with each of these products so without further ado, lets move on to the details.
