Product of the Month : November

hey beauties.Are you excited to welcome December??? Yay finally Christmas is coming. Its so festive all around. I am really pumped up these days.
But before biding goodbye to November, its time for the Product of the Month. So,November's Product of the Month Award goes to..... MAYBELLINE ANGELFIT PERFECT CONCEALER.

Sponge tip wand is easy to dot the product


I got this concealer a long time ago but never reached for it so much, But last month when I went to India, I really had lots of sleepless nights and my dark circles were obvious :( So I applied this amazing concealer and trust me guys it not only helped me with the dark circles but also brightened up my eyes. I am so much in love with it and have been using it all through October and November. I use it to conceal my dark circles only.

I use the shade 02 NATURAL BEIGE
I apply three to four dots around my eyes and blend it with my fingers. I pat my fingers and blend it. 


Before (oopssssss)

After setting concealer with powder

  • Eyes instantly brightens up and dark circles are concealed naturally.
  • Nice creamy texture is easy to apply and blends on easily.
  • Sleek packaging is easy to travel with
  • A little goes a long way. I use 3 to 4 small dots on both eyes and I am good to go.
  • Doesn't cake.
  • No Drying effect.
  • It doesn’t settle on fine lines on my under eye when blended well. 
  • It is lightweight. It looks very natural on my skin. 
  • This lasts 5- 6 hours on me.
  • I find it affordable. Around rm 20.
  • It is available locally. Maybelline counters are in almost all drugstore stores.
  • It gives nice coverage on my dark under eye. It gives light to medium coverage that looks very natural.
  • The only downside is its available in only two shades :( But thankfully I got my perfect shade.
Its a CATCH IT for me. I am loving it and definitely going to repurchase it. Do comment below and let me know your views about this product and share with me your favourite product for the month.

Holiday Makeup Look : Smokey Eyes with Bright Lips

hey beauties... I am really pumped up these day to do blog posts every single day. But the weather in KL has been quite gloomy these days. Its been raining cats and dogs !!! Woah not literally :)

As I always use natural light for my blog photos, I am unable to do any makeup looks for you guys.
 But today I wokeup early and did this look. Its a classic holiday look. Smokey eyes with Bright lips

Lets get started... I used DAISO neutral quad for this look.I had this for quite a long time and today I thought of pulling it out and doing this look.

  • Prime your eyes.
  • Take a DARK BROWN shadow and apply it on the outer half of the eye lid. Also apply it to the outer half of the lower lash line.
  • Blend it well along the crease.
  • Next take a CHAMPAGNE/ HIGHLIGHT shade and apply it onto the inner half of the eye and also drag it till the inner half of the lower lash line.
  • Also use this same shade to highlight the browbone.
  • Now take some BROWN(lighter shade of brown/a shade darker than your skin tone) with a blending brush and blend it with the DARK BROWN along the crease.
  • Next take some BLACK shadow and apply it to the outer V.Blend it well with the browns.
  • Line the upper lash line and water line with a BLACK liner.
  • Apply coats of mascara and your eyes are done.
  • Contour your cheeks. I am using DAISO blush in BROWN
  • Now apply a ROSY shade onto the cheeks. I am using Sephora blush in Raspberry Sheen. See review here
  • Go for Bright BERRY lipstick. I am using Maybelline Lipstick in ICED ORCHID.
Hope you guys like this look. I will be doing a ton of holiday looks, so stay tuned.
Thanks for reading !!!

Today I am going to give my views on Silkygirl Blockbuster Color Palettes. I don't own all the shades, so I will be swatching the shades I have. I had these quads from more than an year and I have been using it in many of my makeup look. But I donno why I forgot to review it. So finally today is the day !!!


  • Comes with a decent packaging.
  • A transparent lid and an informative back which gives a guide how to use the shades.
  • Comes with a dual end sponge applicator. Mine lost :P

  • Available at all drugstores.

After using it for over an year, I can say......
  • Its highly pigmented
  • Very smooth and glides on easily
  • Creamy Texture
  • Easy to blend
  • Shades complement each other perfectly
  • Each quad gives a complete eye make up look
  • Compact casing makes it easy to travel with
  • Gorgeous shades and finish
  • Have a decent  stay on power with primer
  • Comes in a wide range of shades starting from subtle to funky, matte to shimmer.
