Golden Shock / Dior Christmas 2014 Collection Golden Shock / Dior Christmas 2014 Collection


Hope you had a great weekend! How is the Christmas prep coming along?

It surely is the best time of the year with decked up trees, advent calendars, minced pies and of course the limited edition holiday make up releases!!!

So last week I went to Sephora to check out their holiday collection. After an hour long of walking around the isles and checking various holiday collections I had my eyes on Christian Dior's holiday edition and picked up an eye shadow palette, lipstick and two nail enamels.  J ’adore the   lovely festive packaging!

If you are looking for a subtle look for the day or dramatic look for the evening this palette is a definite buy -buy!!.The deep plum shade at the end and the golden one in the center are my favorite ones, is well pigmented. 

Diorific lipstick in Passion Shock
Bold- Beautiful- Bright- Red shade, makes the right hohoho, perfect for this season. And once again the packaging is divine!!! It is a dual toned lipstick; one side is matte with deep intense finish and the other side, a translucent sheen finish.

Diorfic Vernis in 762 Shock and 001 Gold Leaf effect topcoat

It was love at first sight.

762 Shock

Shock is a red shade with slight hint of fuchsia. The formula is so good that just a single coat gives very good coverage.

Gold Leaf Effect Topcoat

Gold leaf is the perfect top coat I have till date!! With delicate random sized miniature golden leaves, it is quite easy to apply.

 If you are still looking for something to gift yourself or your loved ones who is a makeup up junkie like me, The Christian Dior collection is surely a winner!

Cheers to all the fun and festivities!

Hi All,

Hope you guys had an amazing weekend!!With guests at home mine turned out to be quite a hectic one which included shopping and a visit to the lovely Yacht exhibit conducted here in Qatar.

The highlight of the week was undoubtedly my Sephora make up splurge. It was a much deserved  indulgence , as I've been putting a check on my shopping spree habits and more over with me entering my second trimester  I've been inevitably lazy about almost everything!!!!!

Here are a few pics from my mini Sephora haul.

Hi all,

Here goes my first post. It’s a mini haul all the way from USA. I’m hooked onto online shopping and when two of my favorite makeup guru's launched their own products I definitely had to get it.

The First product is by YouTube guru Jaclyn Hill in collaboration with Gerard cosmetics, called Jaclyn's Babies. It consists of two beautiful lip glosses and a lipstick. A beautiful rose pink shade that’s known by her name Rose Hill  and the other lip gloss  is a creamy pink nude shade named Butter Cream. The Lipstick ‘1995’ was created by Jaclyn as a special request for all her followers who had requested for the much hyped Kylie Jenner look. This set of three cost $42 and was delivered in less than 10 days thru USPS.You can get these at

The second item in my haul is ‘The  Tamanna palette’ from Anastasia Beverly Hills in collaboration with makeup  guru Tamanna Roshan aka Dress Your Face. I absolutely love Tamanna's makeup and as soon I saw her mention about the launch of this product on Instagram I had my eyes set on it and went off straight to the site to see if they delivered to India and  as  luck would have it ,they did(yaaay!!!). The palette  comes to $29 and an extra $17 charge for international delivery, totaling to $46, and this too was delivered in less than 10 days through USPS.

This eye palette comes with 10 beautiful shades Fresh, Blush,Venezia,Glided,Custom,Sangria,Bengal,Chocolate,China Rose and Noir.
