EOS Lip Balm Review! featuring Pomegrenate Raspberry, Honeysuckle Honeydew & Strawberry Sorbet ♥

If there's one collection that's never ending at my place, its the lip balms. I genuinely believe you can never have too many! There's one in each bag I own (just in case you know!), in the car, at work and quite a  few in every bathroom around the house. Does that say a thing or two about my lip balm addiction?

EOS- For moist, soft, sensationally smooth lips!
To add to the collection, I've added three EOS lip balms! Yes... Finally!!!
 Made famous by Kim Kardashian, these uber cute eggs from Evolution of Smooth are all that a girl can want from a humble lip balm!

There's so much hoohah about these balms, I just had to get one for myself and then was gobsmacked at how good they were and went on to buy two more!

I seriously couldn't find any fault in these. It does sound like I'm totally smitten but you have to believe me ok?

I have these in 3 variants out of the very many they make - Pomegranate Raspberry, Strawberry Sorbet & Honeysuckle Honeydew. On my wishlist - Coconut milk (coz I'm a coconut addict).

What I like about these balms?

Owl Nail Art! Featuring Revlon Parfumerie in 'Italian leather' & 'Orange Blossom'

If there's one habit of mine that can be touted as a full blown obsession, its the OWLS. I'm crazy about everything owls. My whole family knows about it. Sunshine is quick to tag me in anything owl like in any store we go to! I have owl pen stand, candles, t-shirt, wall hanging, soap dispenser, tooth brush holder & what not! As we speak, there's a custom phone cover in owl design doing rounds in my head.

So, naturally, this nail art has been on my mind since months. I mean look at it... Isn't it cuteness personified? It's like the owl's talking to me! (I always say that!!)

With my current  fitness phase... that includes swimming 3 times a week, my nails are a hot mess. So please excuse the unkempt look. I can't help it! Does swimming give you nail splinters too?

Anyways, moving on! The nail paints used in the nail art are:

Sick of dry skin? & Oil laden thick products? Enter Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion (DDML), now with a plus sign!

I've been using this moisturizer for years & its the only one that never disappoints! Can I call it my HG (Holy Grail) moisturizer?

- DDML+ is a lightweight & effective daily facial moisturizer. It's a pale yellow lotion with thin consistency.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Amsterdam' Review + Swatches + FOTD ♥

If you've read any lipstick post on this blog... You know I love mattes & reds are made for me. NYX's Amsterdam is both & so I adore it. But please take that awful smell away, will you NYX??

These soft matte lip creams have a cult following. Antwerp is my absolute favorite peachy pink ( I recently ordered 3 pieces of it off (Haul post here). Need I say more? They have recently released more shades & I've been digging the dark vampy burgundy that's out (Copenhagen?).

'Amsterdam' is a blue based true red, housed in a matching tube packaging that is both beautiful and practical. Here's the low down on this shade-
