August Favorites '13

I can't even begin to understand why this year is on fast-forward. C'mon Universe, whats going on?
I've been LOVING the very natural barely-there make up, so these are my top picks for the month!

MAC Face and Body Foundation in C5
Talked about my love for it here. And I'm not sure what to add to that except you need to try it to believe it. 

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Dark Bisque
This will be my third one. It eliminates dark circles, blends into the skin and stays put even after getting soaked and walking in pouring rain for 15 odd minutes (true story). 

NARS Cordura Duo
Okay, I think I've mentioned this waaaay too many times already, but its just the PERFECT everyday duo. Its just a few shades darker than my skintone, and the darker colour is perfect for a subtle smokey eye and a little crease definition. My love affair with NARS continues...

Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige and Bad Girl Bonze
As far as drugstore products go, I really feel Rimmel's been kicking it out of the park. I don't need to introduce you to the chubby stick/crayon universe. But these bad boys from rimmel are affordable and gorgeously pigmented. They make for great bases as well as just an all over lid colour when you're in a hurry. FYI, I got these on ASOS, on sale. I'm going to try to get my hands on their shadow paints next.

MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick
Like I said.. barely there. Velvet Teddy is a retro matte lipstick, described as a "deep tone beige" its the most perfect nude for darker-warmer complexions. Seen here.

Real Technique Setting Brush
A multi-tasker. It fits perfectly under the eye to set your concealer/corrector. It also works wonderfully if you want to blend out your eyeshadows. 

Real Technique Deluxe Crease Brush
I use this only with my BB Corrector. I can't even... 
It places concealer in all the right places and blends it out so effortlessly. Le sigh.

The Body Shop Peppermint Intensive Foot Rescue
Let me just take a minute here and tell you, this stuff smells amazing. Like spearmint only better. And its just one of those smells that linger. *takes another whiff*
I have very oily skin, with dry extremities. Nose, fingers, toes. This stuff really helps with my dry toes and fingers. Its also really good for elbows and knees.
Only thing you need to be careful of is that its so intense, its greasy. Don't wear ballet flats after putting this on, or walk barefoot, or move in general. (my behind will never be the same after the fall this caused me)

And thats a wrap!
What were your favorites?


  1. Wow a great collection! I LOVE th rimmel scandaleyes shaddow sticks too...they're lovely. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I love wearing the purple one. I've got hazel eyes soo it goes really well :)


  2. THAT NARS DUO ... omg I'm in love.

    I've been reading up about Nars so much lately, aaaaaaaaand I have to pick up stuff. Like, now.

  3. i have to try mac face n body foundation and rimmel shadow sticks! i dont think the shadow sticks are available in india yet?

    1. Actually I haven't found Rimmel anywhere so far. :/
      I always buy Rimmel and bourjois on ASOS. Its almost always on sale.

    2. I haven't tried ASOS they deliver promptly? I mean the parcel reaches safely na? do they provide tracking numbers?

    3. Tracking number, no. But it has always reached me in 7-10 days, via the postal service.. they're very professional. If it doesn't reach you after a certain point of time, they refund or resend. I've never had problems with them till date.
      I HIGHLY recommend ASOS for everything. Their clothes and accessories are to die for!

    4. wow i definitely must give it a try once! thanks!
