If You Could Live With Only 5 Makeup Items, What Would Your Choices Be?

We all have a boxful or rather, a room-ful of makeup items, don’t we? All the new purchases from the Summer, Fall and the upcoming Christmas/Winter collections are making us spoilt for choices! With so many choices, what if, you could only pick 5 to live for the rest of your life from your makeup collection, what would you pick?

For me, I’m a sucker for eyeshadow palettes, especially from Urban Decay, so I cannot live without my eyeshadows! Hehe, so let’s dig into my 5 choices that I narrowed down! I honestly stared at my stuff, flipped open the drawers and all for so long before I decided on these.

Yes you have it, my holy grail foundation with defined brows, lots of colours to play with, naturally-flushed cheeks and moisturised lips with a healthy pink tint! These are my picks for a perfect face of makeup – no matter whether I’m stranded on the island with nothing else but these 5 items or not! 😀 Vain Roanna is vain!

Liebster Award Q&A

“A Liebster Award?? What is it?” You may be wondering. Well, The Liebster Award is basically given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers by other bloggers in the community. The word “Liebster” itself is German, meaning “sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, loveliest, cutest, a darling… (and the list goes on, but simply, everything nice)”. How sweet of Stephanie Casidy to have nominated me for this, THANK YOU!

Stephanie is a beauty blogger who has really beautiful pictures both on her Instagram (@beautybucketeer) and her blog! Be sure to follow her for lovely beauty picks!

I mean, we are all here to blog and share about the things we love and it’s all about spreading the love, right? This is also a great way to get to know other beauty bloggers out there and help each other gain exposure as well, so thank you once again Stephanie dear!

August 2014 Beauty Favourites: Review

It’s the end of the month of August now and it’s time for August 2014 beauty favourites!

August has been packed with lots and lots of purchases from everywhere (Sephora, the recent Net-A-Porter free shipping etc..). Surprisingly, my favourites this month doesn’t include any of the new purchases because I really wanted to use the things I bought actively for exactly or more than a month to really test the efficacy of the products. Many a times we keep getting new things to play with that we don’t really reach out for a product more than 2-3 times, let alone give a full in-depth review. Thus, I am proud to say that I have been using my favourites so diligently this month that I don’t even realise I’m using them every day! 😀

Without further ado, let’s jump right into my skincare favourites followed by the makeup ones!

For skincare this month (or rather these 2 months), I have been loving my entire skincare range from Kiehl’s! Having acne-prone skin can be quite a headache as it is really not easy to tame the inflamed skin while trying to control acne formation. 3 products that have particularly improved my skin condition drastically are the Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser, Dermatologist Solutions Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution and  Dermatologist Solutions Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment. Oh my what a mouthful. The names are way too long.

August 2014 Bellabox: Review

*Sponsored Post*

The weather has been really crazy lately with the scorching sun isn’t it? Well, this month’s Bellabox came just in time for me! Time to immerse into the summer frenzy with August’s Bellabox themed Summer Fresh. The beauty goodies in this month’s box are really substantial, so much so that the beauty box came in a paper bag instead because there were literally no space to pack some of the items inside the blue polka-dotted box!
