I cannot live without lip balms. I need to have a lip balm on me all the time. That’s because I have very dry and chapped lips. Whether it is summer or winter, my lips always are flaky. I keep applying lip balms every few hours and especially before going to bed. Needless to say I have tried most of the lip balms available in the market. So here are my top 5 picks:
I have combination hair, where my scalp is oily and hair quite dry. It is a weird combination to have for your hair. And I find it so difficult to find he right kind of products for my hair that keep it balanced. Luckily for me, I have found the perfect shampoo, which is the Kerastase Specifique Bain Divalent Balancing Shampoo (read my full review here). As far as conditioning my hair goes, I am yet to find the perfect one. Every now and then I try to deep condition my hair as they have become very rough with all the colouring and heat application by way of blow drying and curling. I rarely oil my hair. I know its supposed to make your hair better but I feel my hair falls A LOT when I oil it and it requires me to wash my hair two or even three times to get rid of the oil. So I use deep conditioning hair masks to keep my hair soft and moisturized.
A workman is only as good as his tools. Well, sorry for the comparison with a workman, but the saying is true for the beauty and makeup world too. For a good finish, you need to have the right tools. Your tools are just, if not more, important than the product itself. I feel brushes are a one-time investment. If you take good care of them, they last forever.
Here is a list of my most used makeup brushes. View Post
I have been loving these liquid lipsticks that almost all brands have come out with. This year is all about liquid matte lipsticks. They are in a gloss like packaging, but they settle mat on your lips. I love when a lipstick is long lasting, because who wants to reapply their lipsticks every few hours. I must admit, I have started using liquid lipsticks more than the normal lipsticks now adays. So when Maybelline came out with these velvet matte lipsticks, I had to try them.
I have been quite MIA the last month. Working as corporate lawyer is taking up all of my time. But hopefully it isn’t for too long. Will talk more about it some other time. But now it is time for the monthly favorites again.
