Current Skin Care Routine (Combination to Acne Prone Skin)

Hey Everyone!

Products for Oily to Acne Prone Skin

I get so many queries on which products to use for oily and acne prone skin that I thought let me share my current skin care routine with you all. All these products I have been using since quite some time now and are working very well for my skin. Before I get started with the products let me tell you what type of skin I have. In my early teens I had very oil to acne prone skin but recently in last couple of years my skin has become quite combination in nature. I get dry patches in and around my nose and mouth area and also suffer from hyper pigmentation around mouth. My cheeks are oily and though currently I don't get pimples but I do suffer from zits and whiteheads here and there. Plus I also have a lot of acne marks and scars from my previous acne battle which still are fading.

So now that you all are aware the type of skin I have lets begin with the products. Please remember these are my personal opinion and everyone's skin is different so if one product works for me it may or may not work for you. If you are suffering from acne my first suggestion would be to visit a good dermatologist since they will be able to analyze your skin better. If you want to know which all products I use and worked well for me keep on reading!

Hey Everyone!

theBalm Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette

theBalm has been one of my favorite brand when it comes to eyeshadows and blushes and this is no secret! I was introduced to this brand by one of my favorite You Tuber Emily Noel from Beauty Broadcast! If you love watching YT videos I am sure you are aware of her and perhaps already subscribed as well. If not I highly suggest you to subscribe to her since she is one of the best beauty gurus when it comes to informative videos on makeup! If there is one person whom I trust to review a product thoroughly considering all the factors it would be Emily Noel! She had been raving theBalm's Nude 'Tude Palette and even went ahead and mentioned it being better than the Urban Decay's Naked palettes!

Loreal Color Riche Lipstick 456 Beige Creme Review, Swatch and FOTD

Hey Everyone!

Today I'll be sharing my views on the Loreal Color Riche Lipstick in the shade 456 Beige Creme, price 785/- for 4.5g


Loreal Beige Creme

Loreal Color Riche Lipsticks comes in a gorgeous gold packaging with Loreal Paris embossed on the tube. The cap of the tube fits in tightly and thus makes it quite travel friendly in my opinion. The bottom of the tube mentions the shade name and the shade number which comes in handy while storing especially if you have quite a lot of lipsticks.

Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 Review and Photos

Hey Everyone!



I will be reviewing today Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 which is part of Clinique's 3 Step Skin Care routine and retails for 1400 for 200 ml

I had heard so much about this product that finally I decided to go ahead and give it a try. I got my skin analyzed by the Clinique doctors when I was in KL and they suggested me to try their Clarifying Lotion 3 and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel as known as DDMG. After trying couple of samples I went ahead and got full size for both of them, so if you want to know my thoughts on them do keep on reading.

Chambor Dazzle Transfer Proof Eye Pencil in Purple Dazzle: Review and EOTD

Hey Everyone!


Today I'll be reviewing one of my favorite purple eyeliner which is Chambor Dazzle Transfer Proof Eye Pencil in Purple Dazzle!


I have quite a few of these dazzle eye liners from Chambor and love them for the gorgeous shades! Earlier I have reviewed Teal Dazzle which is my favorite shade of all time! Click on the link to check the review.

Like all Chambor Dazzle liners Purple Dazzle also comes in a twist up packaging, the worst part about this packaging is that its one way twist up so if by mistake you twist up too much it won't go back inside! This type of packaging just does not make sense and I hope they change it!
