My Inspiration

While walking on one of NZ beaches, I saw this pretty bird

I was amazed at the colour combination he had...and then a little bulb went in my head "Wait, I can try this eye look".
This one thought let my take on the beautiful bird

Let me know incase you need the break up of this look

Pump up the Stereo.....Rose

Yes..yes...I know every one in blogworld is talking about this beauty...and I also had to give in my 2 cents...
You ask why...cause I just love it.

When this was released in US and I read the hype, I initially thought...naah this must again be one of those overhyped product. I was not even sure that I would be picking it up when it was launched here.

Now, last week when I was in NZ, I just walked to the MAC...and lo and behold they had the MAC In The Groove collection....How could I have walked past without swatching the 'STEREO ROSE'. So, I walked in, swatched on my arm...and it was an instant love.


Very subtle coral pink colour

What I loved about it

-> The glitter particles aren't too chunky
-> There is not much fall off
-> It doesn't look powdery
-> Staying power is great
-> Gives the much after glowy cheek
-> And the best of all....just the right amount of color

What I don't love about it

-> That its a LE item :-(

How I apply it

Just tap my blush brush on it and apply on my cheekbone

I loved it so much that I bought a backup as soon as I reached home.

And now to the Stereo Rose on yours truly


Ohh noooo!!! Dandruff in hair….s**t can’t afford to lose more hair…and can’t have flakes all over my keyboard.
Operation Rescue started.

Oil hair using Olive Oil
Wash it with Head & Shoulders
Clean the comb everyday

Oh My God..Oh My God…

Am I doing something wrong or is it just the weather…don’t know…but need to make this Operation success

Airport Haul

Any excuse will work for getting more makeup /skincare…Is this true for you..cause this is definitely true for me.
While travelling internationally, getting stuff duty free is just how I justified hauling the following

-> Elizabeth Arden 8 hr cream
-> MAC Prep & Prime powder
-> MAC Tempting eyeshadow
-> MAC Prunella eye kohl pencil.

I would post the pictures and swatches along with the review once I go back home. Meanwhile I will try posting my other makeup/beauty experiences/ideas.
