The Body Shop: Sicily Lily 019

Burgundy, berry, and plum shades are it for A/W 2016. I've worn these colors for years now. This particular winter my lip color is from The Body Shop's new liquid lipstick range. It's called Sicily Lily 019. The matching nail color is from Bourjois- Cerise Noir. A note about the lipcolor: it's somewhat  patchy and slightly difficult to apply evenly. The trick is to just layer it on thickly.

The times I wore this trend in 2016

This blog commenced with flamboyant, colorful makeup inspirations. For instance, the parrot-green, turquoise, and violet eye I termed "the watercolor eye" in early posts. Since then, my interests expanded to incorporate other aspects of color. I wouldn't be surprised to catch myself blogging about, say, beautiful icing on cakes next. Anyways, the choker has been a strong trend this year. It's one of my favorites. Displayed above are some of the occasions on which I sported this trend.

S.T Dupont Royal Amber

Sandalwood and Oud are my most favorite fragrances. S.T. Dupont's Santal Oud is, by far, the best sandalwood fragrance I have smelt in my life. In the absence of the above-mentioned fragrance, the other Dupont Ouds take priority. YSL's M7 Oud Absolu is also the best, BUT, is extremely masculine. I'm the only female I know who wears it. S.T Dupont's Santal Oud is quite unisex, yet it leans towards the feminine side. It is ideal for daily wear, priced most reasonably, and it exudes a genuine, Mysore sandalwood note. All factors considered, S.T. Dupont's Santal Oud is the fragrance I would buy in stock, if only it were still available. However, this post is not about my beloved Santal Oud. This post is about S.T. Dupont's Royal Amber. I'm uncertain as to its exact year of release, yet I venture a guess it intends to replace the Dupont Ouds line. I'm not going to delve into the details on how it comprises top notes of citrus, mint, and violet, etc. I'll just leave you with the two most significant factors of S.T. Dupont's Royal Amber. First, the box and bottle are an exquisitely beautiful, shiny gold, with an elegant, Arab-looking pattern on them. It's worth buying this fragrance just for the bottle. This is especially so in light of its reasonable price. Secondly, the smell is equally elegant; sweet, warm, somewhat gourmand, and the amber carries an oud note. Yet it doesn't measure up to Dupont's discontinued Santal Oud. Nor is the sillage of the former as strong as the latter. S.T Dupont- please create another Santal Oud!!!

Summer 2015

Hello!!!! Sorry, blog, for having neglected you for so long. 'Nyways, I'd like to share some of my fave, trademark items. These help me stay cool in the summer. First, Naughty Nautical from Essie. It's a gorgeous teal with silver flecks, I love all colors and black, but teal holds a special place with me. Second, YSL Oud Absolu for men. Why do I wear a purely masculine oud for the ultimate, ideal male? Coz it's so me somehow!!!!!! Third, my Guess heels and Guess totebag. Fourth, The Body Shop Green Tea lotion and shower gel. Totally revitalising aromatherapy in a bottle. Will maybe get around to posting some new makeup looks soon enough... P.S- beware the seaweed colored tint all blue,green, n teal nailpolishes leave inside one's nails, and around one's sidewalls, when one removes the color.

I've been busy!

Hello, lovelies! It's been three years since I last posted!!! Going through some of my old 2010 posts made me laugh; i just loved bright rainbow-colored eyes so much! I can't believe I gained professional nails n makeup certifications. While I am obsessed with colors and fragrance, my career ended up as something completely unrelated. Will try to post more regularly now. Got many things to share, including an oud collection n new shoe collection....
