NYX Xtreme Lip Creams - Bonfire, Strawberry Cream & Spicy - Review + FOTD!

After my love affair with matte’s since last few months, I had this urge to go glossy over the weekend & was pleasantly surprised. Now you can’t beat the longevity of a matte lipstick but pumped & juicy lips are hard to ignore as well. I bought these NYX  Lip Creams sometime late last year & was surprised they were still sealed. I really need to sort out my makeup!!


Instead of doing three separate posts & annoy you, here’s 3-in-1 post.

NYX Xtreme Lip Creams were introduced by NYX after the astronomical success of their Soft Matte lip Creams which happens to be my fav formula (minus the smell). Antwerp is the best shade ever created.


Xtreme lip creams are high on gloss, pigmentation & longevity. They are pretty much a cross between lipstick & lip gloss with a bit of lip stain thrown into the mix. Sounds Exotic?

Burberry 'My Burberry' EDP Review!

It’s here! The much awaited new scent by Burberry- ‘My Burberry’* is finally here. Created by Ace perfumer Francis Kurkijdan, inspired by the iconic Burberry trench coat and a wet English garden after rain. 


The honey-beige bottle symbolizes the hues of a trench coat.
The tortoise shell ‘button’ stopper symbolizes the buttons of a trench coat.
That ribbon you see on the neck is the fabric ‘Gabardine’, the weatherproof fabric invented & patented by Thomas Burberry in 1879.


A century later, there are thousands of imitations but a classic shall always remain so.

Sorbet Damage Control Solid Shampoo Bar Review!

I’ve been asked to do a hair care post so many times.. consider this part of a virtual hair care series. You may have spotted my hair in posts such as this & this! Yeah... I like to use them as an accessory. I'm obsessed with them.


The wonderful green bar!
It baffles me why this solid shampoo bar hasn't been reviewed on the blog yet? I've even repurchased it.

Sorbet is a 100% solid skin and hair care company born and bred in NZ. The brand is all about sensational solid products. Why waste money on products that can have up to 90% water? They want you to add the water and believe in giving 100% of product matter. Can you imagine a solid conditioner, moisturizer & even a world first, solid tanning bar? Pretty amazing eh?


While it is quite ingenious & a great USP to sell a solid bar to a population that has only ever known liquid shampoo (Correct me if I'm wrong), it didn't quite cut it for me. What I was blown away was the amazing reviews these bars got!

Best Cleanser for Dry Skin. Vol 3. Lipidol Cleansing Face Oil Review!

It does seem like I have a new obsession after Lime Crime VelvetinesLipidol! Third product in just over a week. Considering how much I love face washes, Cleansing Face Oil was a natural path to follow. RRP of $9.95 was a major draw card. It doesn't hurt much when a cheapy turns out to be a dud! Isn't it?


Lipidol is a new skincare range to hit our shores. It constitutes of 6 oil-based skincare products. It’s from the makers of world famous scar treatment, Bio-oil! I've already reviewed their After Shower Oil and Cleansing Body Oil.

Mooncup Reusable Menstrual Cup Review!

OK! So this one is tricky! If you're a guy please look away now. This will be mutually embarrassing. Gone??

Ladies... ever heard of menstrual cup? Mooncup? Divacup? No?? Quite likely! We'll quickly cover the basics then.

Menstrual cup is a silicone cup/funnel designed to be used instead of pads & tampons - Environment friendly and easy to deal with. This has the power to make those 5-days a breeze (Excluding the Day-1 cramps! hate them like anything).


The brand I'm using (as I type... eeek!!) is Mooncup that I've bought off Santé beauty. Nellie was quite keen on me giving it a go & writing about it! At that time it felt all cool but it's harder to write than I thought.
This is my third period using Mooncup, so safe to say I've tried it on for a fair amount of time. In all honestly, this is the second best thing to happen to us women after lingerie. I no longer have to worry about the dreadful day1 as you are never quite sure which & how many pads you should be carrying! I had been a tampon girl lately and not even the super flow ones would suffice a work day. Since Mooncup, in these 3 months, I haven't used a single tampon or pad!! That's quite something.

How this works?
