My January 2013 Beauty Favorites!


Hey everyone!

January 2013 is nearly over and today I have this month’s favorite beauty products and looks for you! I discovered quite a few skin care products this month along with a few lovely makeup products. Nothing new in Hair care but I’m hoping to change in the coming month!

1. La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (Review)

Excellent for getting rid of stubborn breakouts, keeps the skin clean and refines pores. Must-have!


2. Biotique Morning Nectar Lotion

Nothing unusually great about it but its quite moisturizing and leaves a dewiness behind. My skin has been a bit dry this winter so this has been helping in keeping dryness at bay!


3. Cosmedic Avederm Soothing Cleanser (Review)

Another fabulous product for those who get breakouts (allergic ones), excellent for sensitive skin. Do read the full review. Must-have!


4. Oilcraft Naturals Premium Mogra Water (Review)

I love face mists and this was a wonderful discovery – both the product as well as the brand. Excellent for toning and refreshing the skin. Do check the full review of the Rose and Mogra water.


5. Garnier BB cream (Review)

Excellent for giving a light, even coverage to the skin, wears fairly well too. Been reaching out for this a lot for good skin days. Won’t recommend for those looking for coverage.

1. Revlon Whipped Creme Makeup (Review)

Excellent long wear foundation! Gives good coverage, a natural matte finish and is priced very well too.


2. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

A late discovery considering the world has been raving about it for a long time now! Gives a beautiful healthy, dewy finish along with good coverage! To be reviewed soon.


3. Illamasqua Powder blush – Hussy (Review)


Beautiful warm candy pink blush that gives a boost of healthy color to the cheeks. One my favorite pink blushes, always brightens and perks up my face!

1. MAC Lip Pencil : Spice (Worn HERE)

My latest discovery! Gorgeous peachy brown lip pencil, great for medium-dusky skin tones as an all over lip color. Doesn’t wash out the face and pairs well with bright eye makeup!


2. MAC Cremesheen Glass : Deelight (Review)

Been wearing this a lot over MAC Spice lip liner. The 2 make a lovely combo! Since its quite moisturizing, it takes away the dryness that the lip pencil brings.


3. L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche le Gloss : Blushing Berry (Review)

I love this gloss! It is so so hydrating that I’ve been wearing this even at bedtime these past few days. The sheer berry color looks lovely against Indian skin tones, great gloss for everyday wear!


4. Revlon Matte Lipstick : Really Red (Worn HERE)

My current favorite red! This bright tomato red adds so much life to my face, the formula is quite good too! To be reviewed soon.


5. Shiseido Rouge Lacquer : Sunstone (Review)

My go-to pink lipstick. Its a very natural dusty rose pink color, adds color to the face without looking too bright. Its expensive but its the kind of shade you can wear anytime, anywhere! Love the formula as well!



Eye Makeup ~

1. MAC eye shadow : Bronze

I can’t get enough of this gorgeous color! One of my favorite neutral eye shadows – I’ve worn it as a light wash and smoked out with lots of kohl, looks beautiful either way. Must-have!


2. MAC Extradimension eye shadow : Round Midnight (Review)

If you love purples, you cannot ignore this shade! The price is a bit steep and its a Limited Edition product but the buttery smooth formula and amazing color is worth it! I wish its made permanent.


3. Maybelline The Falsies Volum’Express Mascara (Worn HERE)

This launched in India some time back . I’ve only worn it twice but I love it already, gives amazing volume and length! To be reviewed soon.


4. Inglot eye lash curler

Gives a nice curl, is quite easy to use and is wide enough to cover the entire length of my eye.

    I’ve been wearing NARS Kalahari duo (lighter shade on inner 1/3 of lid), Stila Pigalle (middle of lid and outer v) and L’Oreal Sculpted duo (darker shade on outer v) with black liner and mascara this month. It’s a really pretty subtle berry look.
